Maybe someone knows the meaning/s/ of "campaigning weather".It was present in a quote from C.S.Lewis.

The phrase comes from this quote:
The long, dull, monotonous years of middle-aged prosperity or middle-aged adversity are excellent campaigning weather for the devil. C. S. Lewis ...
In other words, Lewis is saying that middle-age (be it prosperous or not) is a propitious time for 'the devil' to claim people's souls.
