JUST IN CASE: meaning and examples

Good morning, Today's expression is: just in case It means: to be prepared for something that may happen. We can use this phrase on its own or with an object: just in case of something. The Spanish translation would be por si acaso. Example 1 Rita: The sky looks pretty cloudy. Why don't you take an umbrella, just in case? Chris: Did the weather report say it would rain? Example 2 She had to be in Barcelona at eight o'clock for the interview so she took an early train, just in case there were problems. Example 3 I bought extra food for the party, just in case one of our guests brings along a friend.
