I have a question whether you can use past continuous tense in a certain sentence.
When you are describing the wind that was blowing when you left home, can you say this?
As I left home, the wind was blowing hard.
I wasn't sure if you can use past continuous tense in the main clause when the dependent clause begins with "as." So I looked in the dictionaries and couldn't find any sentences like that. Should the sentence be written like this instead?
As I left home, the wind blew hard.
