Hello to all,

Thanks for reading my post.


Sample sentence:

I'm at home. Earlier in the day it was cloudy. I thought it would continue to be <cloudy><so>, so I wasn't planning to go to the beach. Now, it is sunny. I have changed my mind, and I'm going to go to the beach.

Question:


Are both options correct in the sample sentence?


Thanks a lot for any comments, corrections or suggestions!

Regards,
JJXR

    Earlier in the day it was cloudy. I thought it would continue to be cloudy, so I wasn't planning on going to the beach. :tick:
    Earlier in the day it was cloudy. I thought it would continue to be, so I wasn't planning on going to the beach. :tick:

    I like the second one better but they're both perfectly fine.

    To throw an idolectic version out there, I could see myself saying this:
    "It was cloudy earlier and I thought it would be all day, so I wasn't planning on going to the beach. Then it cleared up, so I changed my mind."
