English Oxford Dictionary

"Above all – we were wet.

From October to April the walls of Limerick glistened with the damp. Clothes never dried: tweed and woollen coats housed living things, sometimes sprouted mysterious vegetations. In pubs, steam rose from damp bodies and garments to be inhaled with cigarette and pipe smoke laced with the stale fumes of spilled stout and wiskey and tinged with the odor of piss wafting in from the outdoor jackes where many a man puked up his week’s wages.
The rain drove us into the church – our refuge, our strength, our only dry place."

Frank McCourt , Angela’s Ashes, a memoir of a childhood
