I have tried to use "even though" in my sentences. Would you please correct my mistakes?
1. Even though John worked hard, he hardly managed to support his numerous family.
2. Even though the snow plows worked the whole night, long hold-ups formed on the road.
3. Even though it was a perfect day for a game, the football match was unexciting.
I am wondering about my second sentence.
Would it be correct if I write it like this?
Even though the snow plows had been working through the whole night, long hold-ups formed on the road.
Yes, that would be fine too.
Hold-ups are traffic jams.
