    damp clothes

    Is the phrasing correct? Please give me corrections. Thanks!


    When she arrived at home, she was terrible wet. She didn't change out of those damp clothes into something dry immediately, so she caught a cold.

    She was terribly wet. Otherwise it's fine.

    I'd delete 'at'.
