    Re: Since

    Could you not use upper case for a whole post- it makes things very difficult to read. Thanks.

    PS IT WAS RAINING SINCE MORNING doesn't work.

    The first sentence is wrong. It should be: It has been raining since morning.

    But, you can say:
    Since it was a rainy day, I could not go out.

    Since is normally used with perfect tenses; it can also be used with no reference to time, as in the sentence above
