a possible explanation

It is / was now pretty late, the party broke up and we all went home

This is a considered an awkward sentence, since the two clauses are put together without a connector, a violation of the english writing principle.
But in this case -- It being now pretty late, the party broke up and we all went home, the previous part is not a clause, and the sentence is ok.

aaa

如果是两个句字就要用句号full stop连接,由于逻辑关系是是:由于。。所以。。,因此只能用being表示这个关系
