Heavy Rains Bring Flooding — Persistent, often heavy rain made for a miserable weekend weather-wise. But the real misery is happening in nearby Alexandria, where part of Old Town is under more than a foot of water. More from NBC4.

Board Passes Temporary Snow Removal Ordinance — The Arlington County Board passed a 60-day emergency snow removal ordinance by a vote of 3-2. Dissenting board members Jay Fisette and Barbara Favola joined the Arlington Chamber of Commerce in questioning why an ordinance should be rushed into law, saying it will be difficult to enforce in the unlikely event that Arlington gets a significant snowfall between now and May.

Arlington Diocese Declares Monday a Day of Prayer — Bishop Paul Loverde says Arlington Catholics should pray and fast today (Monday) to ask God for passage of a health care bill that does not “come at the expense of the respect for life at all stages, from natural conception to natural death.” More from LifeSiteNews.

    I personally do NOT want Catholic crap on this website! As a “recovering” former Catholic, Arlington news is ABOUT Arlington, and should not include the Catholic Church and their warped agenda and views!!! CAN THEM. I will be back to check and see, after that I will petition all peoples who want it off the site. WE ARE THE MAJORITY in Arlington. Get the Catholic crap out now!!

    Ah, yes, the old “I don’t agree with it, so don’t publish it” message. I may not agree with some of the items that are posted on this site, just as there are some items I just care about. But I’m not going to ask (or demand) the blog administrators to not post things I disagree with – I’d much rather they post more items, which I am capable of analyzing on my own.
