It’s been a hot, humid and rainy week and we can expect more of the same over the weekend and for the start of next week.

No wonder 68% of respondents to an ARLnow poll on Tuesday said they were ready for fall weather to start ASAP.

Let’s forget about the miserable weather for a moment and take a look at the most-read articles of the past week.

  1. Thousands Lose Power After Strong Storm Rips Through Arlington
  2. Maison Cheryl in Clarendon Promises Chic Atmosphere for ‘Older Millennials’
  3. Five Arrested in D.C. After Armed Robbery in Pentagon City
  4. Numerous Residents Displaced After Fire at Crystal City Apartment Building
  5. Arlington Charities Helps Afghans Resettle in Northern Virginia
  6. What $750,000 Can Get You in Northern Virginia Real Estate
  7. Long Bridge Aquatics and Fitness Center Now Open
  8. Arlington Pet of the Week: Cthulhu
  9. Knife-Wielding Man Tased Outside Arlington Police HQ

Feel free to discuss the stories above or anything else of local interest in the comments. Have a nice weekend!
