How to use damp in a sentence?

  1. Van Dam:

    This is a rare occurrence that took place because cool, damp air became trapped in the lower levels of the canyon, it was literally stuck underneath a warm layer of air just above. In the meteorological world, this is referred to as an inversion when the temperature actually warms with height (as opposed to it cooling with a rise in altitude).

  2. Letitia Elizabeth Landon:

    Grief, after all, is like smoking in a damp country — what was at first a necessity becomes afterwards an indulgence.

  3. Devesh Mamtani:

    The sanctions on Iran have turned out to be a damp squib for the time being with the Trump administration granting exemptions, the exemptions have even surprised Saudi Arabia as oil supplies from Iran are likely to spike in the coming days.

  4. Terry Torrison:

    The ECB and OPEC meetings could prove to be a damp squib, which may result in markets drifting a bit lower.

  5. Joseph Addison:

    Laughter, while it lasts, slackens and unbraces the mind, weakens the faculties and causes a kind of remissness and dissolution in all the powers of the soul; and thus it may be looked on as weakness in the composition of human nature. But if we consider the frequent reliefs we receive from it and how often it breaks the gloom which is apt to depress the mind and damp our spirits, with transient, unexpected gleams of joy, one would take care not to grow too wise for so great a pleasure of life.
