Weathering under the weather

Feeling a little under the weather.  Like I’m on the verge of a cold or a warm.  Come to think of it, I’ve always been under the weather (good or bad weather) – that’s just a weird saying.

It comes from a maritime source. In the old days, when a sailor was unwell, he was sent down below to help his recovery, under the deck and away from the weather.

I’m going to have to weather the weather whether I like it or not.
