    when the weather gets clear/cleared.

    Let's take it this way that you cannot perform a certain outdoor activity because of bad weather so you suggest a friend of yours that you would do it when the weather turns fine. So how would you say that?

    Here is an example.

    We can't go hiking because it's raining cats and dogs, we will do that when the weather gets clear/cleared.

    Re: when the weather gets clear/cleared.

    Your sentence is a comma splice, which Barb recently explained to you.

    '...when the weather gets clear' is possible, but most of us would say '...when the weather clears'.

    Re: when the weather gets clear/cleared.

    Thank you, I also thought of that option after I posted the thread. Anyway, thank you again. Tell me about comma splice, you mean I should have put semi colon in place of the comma?
