    Re: Phillip had to drive back home

    It still sounds like the dust is floating and rain is falling at the same time. Does that happen in Iran? I've never seen it. Does it rain during dust storms?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Alpa, you keep missing chances to use exclamation marks. If somebody yells something that's a clue. Examples:

    Hey!
    I hate you!
    Go away!
    Get out!

    That's what I meant, dust in the air and rain falling at the same time.

    It happened here yesterday!
