    just

    "Snow flurries expected this weekend in New Orleans? Isn't that just the weirdest? I bet they haven't had snow in New Orleans for a million years."
    Breakfast at Tiffany's, movie

    Am I right that the meaning of "just" here is:
    ■ really; absolutely (used for emphasis)
    they're just great
    Thank you.

    Re: just

    Holly's (Lula) ex-husband persuades her to move with him to the country, but she refuses. He:
    - I love you, Lula Mae.
    - I know you do, and that’s just the trouble. It’s a mistake you always made Doc — trying to love a wild thing.

    Breakfast at Tiffany's, movie

    Is the meaning of the 'just' here the same as in the #1?
    Thank you.
