ARLnow Holiday Weekend Discussion

Storm clouds over Williamsburg Blvd on Thursday night, minutes before a Tornado Warning sounded (staff photo)

One moment you’re going on a last-minute-before-the-rain run, the next a Tornado Warning is sounding and you’re grabbing your laptop to report on a story that Arlington will remember for years to come.

Such is how this week concluded, with an honest-to-goodness twister touching down two blocks south of Arrowine and cutting a path of mild-to-moderate destruction until it finally lifted just south of the White House.

When you’re personally interested in something, you tend the pour yourself into reporting stories about it. Thank you for the kind words about our coverage, Arlington, and thank you to Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt for inspiring some detailed on-the-ground storm reporting 25 years later.
