    Barmaley, this topic is only for Russian speakers learning English. Read the disclaimer! Our job here is to correct their grammar!

    "The morning was cloudy when he locked the door and went by his usual way to the book store. It was drizzling."

    ребята, смысль немножко не та. "Утро было облачное когда он закрыл дверь и пошел в книжный магазин по обычнам путям. дождь идет." ? Может быть лучше "The morning was cloudy, he locked the door and went by his usual way to the book store. It started to drizzle"...

    That's the problem with doing the disclaimer on a third thread! I didn't read it until AFTER I posted!

    The morning was cloudy when he locked the door and went by his usual way to the book store. It was drizzling. Unfortunately, "it" wasn't the clouds, but a dog standing on the roof overhead. Suddenly he remembered, what today is FRIDAY, and decided to drink some beer after work.
    The bear looked at the car, and reflections of fire danced in his eyes. He knew what to do.

    exactly in the book store.

    Suddenly he remembered, what today is FRIDAY, and decided to drink some beer after work.

    Suggestions for this sentence:

    Suddenly he remembered, that today is FRIDAY, and decided to drink some beer after work.

    Suddenly he remembered, what today is. It is FRIDAY, and decided to drink some beer after work.

    "Suddenly he remembered that it was Friday" - I think that's the way to get this idea across.

    "Had come to his mind exactly in the bookstore" sounds awkward. Other possible variations that sound better (other than the one above):
    "...had come to his mind in the bookstore"
    "...had come to his mind right there in the bookstore"
    "...had come to his mind upon entering the bookstore"
    I dunno, i'm sure the list is endless...
