It was a workweek that started with a sense of impending doom and ended with some very nice weather and light traffic.

Ida is long gone and the Labor Day weekend is here. For the several dozen of you still hanging around this afternoon, here are some of the most-read ARLnow stories of the week:

  1. Video: Lightning Strikes Above Ballston Quarter Mall
  2. Flash Flood Watch Issued Ahead of Arrival of Ida’s Remnants
  3. ACPD: Man Stabbed and Robbed Along Columbia Pike
  4. HQ2 Reaches 3,000 Employees As Construction Progresses
  5. More Ghost Kitchens Appear in Clarendon Parking Lot Eyed for Redevelopment
  6. Car Overturns in Crash Near Westover
  7. Man Survived Serious Bike Crash in Yorktown Last Month
  8. Most Expensive Arlington Homes Sold in August

Now go forth, enjoy the near-perfect weather and those last few days of outdoor pool time, and — if you are sufficiently reclined — discuss the above stories or anything else of local interest from your lounge chairs. Have a nice holiday weekend!
