今天我们要学的词是 barometer。

Barometer的意思是气压表、晴雨表,When a hurricane hits, 'Waffle House' becomes a barometer

当飓风来袭时,华夫饼屋就成了晴雨表。

什么意思呢?就是这家餐饮店是否开门显示了飓风的严重程度。

Democrats have already captured several races this year that were seen as barometers of the electorate, and the party is confident that enthusiasm will carry on

民主党人今年已经赢得了几个被视为选民晴雨表的地方选举,他们相信这股热情将持续下去。
