(单词翻译:单击)

Ali: It’s just our luck that as soon as we arrive here for our island vacation, there’s a hurricane warning!
真倒霉我们刚到这里来海岛度假,就有飓风警报!

Mariela: It’s uncanny, isn’t it? On last year’s vacation, we crossed paths with a tornado and now this.
真是不可思议,是不是?在去年的假期,我们穿过龙卷风和现在又遇到了这个。

Ali: Yeah, that tornado was something. I had experienced windstorms before with really strong gusts of wind, but it was nothing like that tornado. Do you remember the way all of the windows, doors, and even walls rattled? The tornado blew down power lines and uprooted trees!
:是啊,这龙卷风真是麻烦。我经历过真正的伴随强风的风暴,但它和龙卷风不一样。你还记得龙卷风沿途所有的窗户,门,甚至墙壁都嘎嘎作响吗?龙卷风刮到了电源线和将树木连根拔起!

Mariela: That was terrifying. Do you think we’ll have another experience like that this time?
这真可怕。你认为我们还会有一次那样的经历吗?

Ali: I really hope not. We came for ocean breezes, but if the hurricane makes landfall, we’ll have gale winds of up to 50 miles per hour!
我真的不希望。我们是来吹吹海风,但如果飓风登陆,我们将遇到风俗高达每小时50英里的大风!

Mariela: And we’re trapped here! What should we do?
我们在这里被困了!我们应该做些什么呢?

Ali: We’ll just buckle down and wait it out. With any luck, the hurricane will miss the island altogether.
我们倾全力等待飓风过去。运气好的话,飓风将不会经过岛屿。

Mariela: With our luck, what’s the likelihood of that happening?!
以我们的运气,发生这种情况的可能性有多大?!

it’s just our luck 真倒霉
blow down 刮倒
make landfall 登陆
buckle down 倾全力,开始认真从事
