San Diego is warm nearly all year, but as the temperatures increase, we are reminded just how perfect the SD weather is! This month we are looking at some expressions with “warm” to celebrate the coming of summer. We are also looking at San Diego’s yearly weather temperature averages to show SD’s ideal weather.
Expressions with “Warm”
Definition: a party to celebrate when someone moves into a new apartment or house.
Example: Are you going to Sarah’s housewarming party? She just moved to a new place in Little Italy!
We can also use housewarming + gift/present to talk about the present we give someone at a housewarming party.
Example: I bought her a new cheese plate as a housewarming gift.
Definition: any person; someone needed to be present in order to be counted.
Example: The movie director needed a few warm bodies for the scene, so he asked the people at the beach if they wanted to be in the movie.
Warm the bench/bench warmer
Definition: to be a part of the team but not play.
Example: He warmed the bench for most of the game.
We also can the person who warms the bench a “bench warmer.”

Example: Warm regards, Sarah
