ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Tomorrow is Halloween, and this year’s edition is coming complete with a blue moon.

But the real scare of the weekend comes early Sunday morning, when Daylight Saving Time ends, leading to a 5:07 p.m. sunset that night.

On the plus side, those without young kids will gain an extra hour of sleep. Just make sure to check your smoke detectors and be extra careful on local roads and trails.

Here are the most-read ARLnow articles of the past week:

  1. Arlington Question Stumps Jeopardy Contestants (Oct. 23)
  2. Widespread Power Outages in Arlington, McLean and Falls Church
  3. Task Force Reveals Possible New Names for Lee Highway
  4. APS Return to School Plan Hits Snag
  5. Early Work Underway for New Harris Teeter, Apartments in Ballston
  6. ‘The Lot’ Owners to Open Pop-up in Former Clarendon Ballroom Space
  7. South Arlington Vintage Market Goes Viral On TikTok
  8. A Majority of APS Teachers Prefer Remote Teaching for Now

  10. Morning Poll: Are You Willing to Eat Inside a Restaurant Yet?
