Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
The plans were down to earth. (Snow’s”The Sleep of Reason” , chapter XXXVIII)
be down to earth = come back to earth = be a realist ( down to earth adj. true-to-life , life-like)
Thank you for your efforts.

It seems to me that the plans were based on facts, not illusions or ideas.
