Be Careful Commuting This Morning — A thunderstorm packing driving rain and high winds swept through the area overnight, causing trees and power lines to fall and coating local sidewalks and roadways with wet leaves. The leaves could make for slick conditions for cyclists, pedestrians and drivers alike this morning. More on the storm damage, including this morning’s closure of George Mason Drive, here.

Whitlow’s Hopes to Open Rooftop Deck by Thanksgiving — Whitlow’s owner Greg Cahill tells TBD that he hopes to have his new rooftop bar, Wilson’s on Whitlow’s, open in one or two weeks. Cahill is working hard to open in time for Thanksgiving eve, traditionally one of the busiest nights for bars. Bring your coat.

Meet Arlington’s County Manager — Barbara Donnellan, Arlington’s (relatively) new county manager, will participate in a public forum with the local League of Women Voters tonight.

The forum will be held from 6:45 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the third-floor county board room at 2100 Clarendon Blvd.

    HUGE tree down at the corner of S. 16th Rd and S. Garfield has completely blocked access in and out of our cul de sac, via 16th Rd! I can’t find any information on who to call from the county to remove it–arlingtonva.us is useless!

      In these situations, especially at the time you were typing, the best thing to do is to call the APD non-emergency number. 703-558-2222. The dispatchers generally know who to call.

    I thought a tornado was tearing through South Arlington. Knocked the power right out (for about 6 hours).
