Instead of lowering the NP into the sentence in the syntax, we take the interpretation of the NP and raise it up to give it scope over the sentence interpretation in the semantics. If we think of the structural description as a tree and the semantics as working from the bottom of the tree (where the words are) to the top, the storage technique involves putting an NP interpretation on ice for a while until you have interpreted enough of the tree to represent the scope you want to give the NP. At that point you may take the NP-interpretation out of storage and quantify it in.
