ANY PORT IN A STORM – ORIGIN

A commonly used phrase adopted by landlubbers, ‘any port in a storm’ as virtually self explanatory. If a ship is in danger any port where you can find shelter is preferable to sinking regardless of what might be waiting. Today it is used more widely to describe a situation where people with problems go to the easiest place or person for ‘help’, often resulting in things getting worse. Any way out is a good way out.
