|Hi on a rainy day! I can't say we have been enjoying either good spring weather here... It has been raining for the past two days. Since we're soon going to Berlin to sightsee the city... and if the weather is like today... it makes me think of another idiom for today, which is |
TO SEND SHIVERS DOWN ONE'S SPINE
Another nice idiom, isn't it? Let's explain the focus words in this idiom. The first one is shivers (a sudden attack of the chills, in Polish - dreszcze, ciarki) and the other one is spine (a spinal column of a vertebrate, in Polish - kręgosłup).
A few words from myself in this context :)
So now you know what I am writing about this idiom in the context of weather. If it rains, just the thought of it sends shivers down my spine. I guess nobody likes sightseeing when it is raining... Then you can't walk leisurely, you can't take pictures, you have to carry an umbrella, an there is no time for really enjoying the city...
Let's take a look at a bunch of examples from the Net:
