Here, "as" means "like". You can use "as" with an adjective ("as big as a whale" which means "the same size as a whale" or "like the size of a whale" -- e.g. "The car he bought me was as big as a whale") or with a situation as in the example you give and as in this sentence. Replace "as" with "like" and it might make more sense. :)
