    Uh, miss with the umbrella, rain boots are more appropriate.

    • Clarendon

      I think she is better off than the dude across the street with no umbrella and sneakers.

  • chouse

    So what? There are soldiers in Afghanistan, people!

    (okay, point made, I’m done)

    • Sad Frog

      for you.

      • Baltimore

        So you allow this but censor my harmless comment about Maryland drivers?

        Fool.

        • KalashniKEV

          Lots of censorship lately…

          Makes me wonder if there’s a new mod?

            Maybe it’s that random woman whose name was attrributed to a bunch of articles without any explanation?

        • Sad Frog

    not to be too sexist, but she looks good in her flip flops.
    some dude would not.

    • Rosslyn Boom

        Her feet are a little big, which may create a hydroplane situation.

    I’m going to quit my job and become an ARLnow.com photo stringer.

    Has Donaldson Run been sandbagged? Think of the children!!

    • Thes

      Think of them!

    • Rosslynite

      Donaldson Run was left out of the National Weather Service report, although other sections of Arlington are called out. A coincidence? I think not.

  • Thes

    In other news, the National Weather Service reports a severe shortage of lower case letters.

    • D’oh

      HA! Must be some angry people over there.

  • DarkHeart

    Beads and Roman Sandals will not do…

  • ssarlbrg

    NICE LEGS!

    • Old 80s Tune

      …shame about the face.

      • Rosslynite

        Are you calling this lovely young woman a Butter Face?

  • gb

    Stop being rude. So unnecessary.
