    "weather" as a verb

    I know the idiom "weather the storm", but
    recently I've learned that the verb "weather" can take other nouns.
    For example, "weather a crisis", "weather a difficulty" and "weather a problem" are OK? (In my impression, "weather" takes something difficult.)
    Also, is there any other noun that "weather" can take? Thanks.

    Re: "weather" as a verb

    Weather is a noun referring to meteorological conditions such as rain, sunshine, wind, or clouds (as in stormy weather, the weather forecast) or a verb meaning "expose something to the weather" or "come safely through a difficult time" (as in weathered lumber, weather the storm)
