    blow away = impress greatly, delight

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following excerpt from an English text?

    Leo, staring up, admires the Manhattan skyline.
    LEO: Every time I come here, I’m just blown away by this view.

    blow away = impress greatly, delight

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
