    Since

    1. She stayed at home since it was raining.
    2. Since it was raining, she stayed at home.

    Are the meanings of the above sentences the same?

    Re: Since

    Yes, both 'since' mean 'because'.
    In "Since it started raining, she has stayed at home" could mean 'because' or it could mean 'from the time'. It's ambiguous.
