ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Arlington County Board members pose with honored citizens on Sept. 27, 2016

It’s been an exceptionally rainy end to the week, but sunshine and pleasant fall-like temperatures are around the corner.

On balance September has been a slow month news-wise in Arlington. One would think that school starting and everyone returning from their summer vacations would make for a busier month. However, our records over the past five years show that September has traditionally been a slow month, with few big traffic spikes from big stories.

Slow news periods usually don’t last too long in Arlington. October, we expect, will see a return of a faster-paced local news cycle.

Feel free to discuss the rain or any other topic of local interest in the comments.
