My alarm clock didn't go off this morning. This is the third time in a week.

---------------------------------------------------


May I ask if 'this is' is correctly used.

Would it be better to say: it was ?

My alarm clock didn't go off this morning. It was the third time in a week.

So, two questions:

One, it vs. this; the other, was vs. is.

Thank you.
