If you’re sticking around town for Thanksgiving this year, you might want to dig out that winter parka.
The forecast is calling for some absolutely frigid temperatures for Turkey Day and Black Friday alike, so be sure to bundle up if you’re planning to swing by a turkey trot or do some holiday shopping.
If you have any extra food to help hungry families for the holiday, the Arlington Fire Department is collecting:

Thank you for your generosity so far. Help us collect even more before Christmas. Info: https://t.co/N053QpE0Ak pic.twitter.com/6gSBivr2ql
