@Ruggercat68- Unfortunately, I have a different connection with this expression. I remember hanging out with my fraternity brothers back in college and some of them were complete jerks when it came to women. One of them took a female friend of mine out to dinner and a movie one night, and the next morning one of my roommates asked him how it went. He just smirked and said "Any old port in a storm, I guess". I wanted to clobber him right then and there. My friend wasn't just a port in a storm, and I felt sorry for her that he said something so crude about their date.
