No. Brook means to tolerate or endure.
Of course.. brook means also a small stream or river.

So you endured a small stream.

It probably was too cold.







Brook    

1. A natural stream of water smaller than a river or creek.
“Empires itself, as doth an inland brook Into the main of waters. Shak.”


2. To bear; to endure; to put up with; to tolerate; as young men can not brook restraint.
