Difference between for and in
What is the difference between the following 2:
We had snow for 2 straight weeks in London
We had snow in 2 straight weeks in London
If I wanted to say that it snowed last Saturday and this Saturday(just the 2 days, not in between),
which would be correct?
Thanks for your time.
When you use 'in' followed by a time period, it means that something will happen at the end of that time period.
I am leaving in two weeks.
'For' followed by a time period means that something happens during the time.
We had snow for 2 straight weeks in London.
Use 'on' to say that something happened at a specified time (2 straight Saturdays.)
We had snow on 2 straight Saturdays in London
