ARLnow Holiday Weekend Discussion

As the weekend approaches, Arlington County could be at risk of another dusting of snow.

Local crews and their VDOT colleagues have been pretreating roads due to the snow potential Saturday. The recent low temperatures may create slick conditions, officials warn.

Any snow is forecast to arrive overnight tonight, and VDOT is warning drivers to do the following:

  • If conditions are icy, avoid driving for safety. Otherwise, give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination and reduce speeds significantly.
  • Continue to check weather forecasts. Pavement and air temperatures have been below freezing all week.
  • Take it slow on bridges, ramps, and overpasses, and other known trouble spots.
  • Ensure gas tanks and windshield wiper fluid tanks are full, and always use your headlights.

In this shortened week, these were our most read stories:

  1. Longtime Pizza Restaurant Faccia Luna to Become ‘Alto Fumo’
  2. Crime Report: Man With Gun Holds Up Three Near Yorktown HS
  3. Firefighters Called to Hospital to Remove Ring from Man’s Genitals
  4. Fishing Store District Angling Now Open in Cherrydale
  5. Forecasters Warn of Potential for Morning Snow

And these received the most comments:

  1. Morning Notes (December 28)
  2. Progressive Voice: The Case for a Democratic Primary in Arlington in 2018
  3. Firefighters Called to Hospital to Remove Ring from Man’s Genitals
  4. ‘High Adventure’ Ropes Course Planned for Upton Hill Regional Park
  5. Crime Report: Man With Gun Holds Up Three Near Yorktown HS

We’ll be off on Monday, except in the case of breaking news, for New Year’s Day. ARLnow will return to our normal publishing schedule on Tuesday.

Between now and then, feel free to discuss anything of local interest in the comments. Have a great weekend and happy new year!

Need help dealing with anxiety, depression or stress?

If you’re struggling to cope with anxiety, depression or stress, our virtual psychotherapy services can help. We offer a confidential and convenient service that’s tailored to your needs.

In our practice, cognitive behavioral therapy (or CBT) is an important tool we use to provide effective relief for those facing anxiety and depression. We believe that cognitive change can be used to improve behaviors and emotions, thus allowing you to achieve mental wellness. By understanding the cognitive distortions that lead to negative thought patterns, we are able to create interventions tailored to each of our clients.

With CBT, our service provides an effective treatment that can bring long-term change and mental stability.
