"Dry as a bone" nghĩa là gì?

Anh đánh răng rồi, nhưng thế này thì…Photo courtesy Katie Tegtmeyer.

'As dry as a bone' = khô như khúc xương -> nghĩa là khô thật khô (to be extremely dry); khô như ngói.

Ví dụ
The city has remained as dry as a bone during the last few weeks.

Karnataka's Bandipura National Park is dry as a bone with summer still to come.

The usual troughs that do form over the Konkan and Goa region have also not been in proximity of Mumbai keeping the city dry as a bone.

I thought we were wasting our time, but when we got there the place was dry as a bone and there was no sign of snow in at all.
