    Default lots of

    I learned that "a lot of, lots of ,plenty of" can be used for a both countable and uncountable noun. But I don't know if they can be used in a nagative sentence. for example;
    #1. We didn't have lots of rain yesterday.
    #2. We didn't earn plenty of money last year.
    Are these sentences correct gramatically?
    Could any teacher tell me?

    Please change #1 to "a lot of rain"
