Most-read Arlington stories of the week: Nov. 29-Dec. 3

If it’s shocking to you that it’s December already, you’re not alone.

Maybe it’s because fall seemed to be a mere extension of summer that then quickly transitioned to winter. Or maybe it’s continued remote work that makes the days blend together. Or maybe we’re all working harder than usual given the nationwide labor shortage.

Whatever it is, Christmas lights are proliferating, the first tiny snowflake have fallen, another bout of snow is in the forecast for this coming Wednesday. Bottom line: winter is here, believe it or not.

With that, here’s a look back at the most-read local stories of the past week.

  1. CarPool to open new Ballston location tomorrow
  2. Gunshots fired in Westover yesterday morning, police say
  3. Driver flees after striking and seriously injuring pedestrian near W&OD Trail crossing
  4. APS targets two overcrowded schools in latest boundary change proposal
  5. Peter’s Take: Arlington’s ‘Missing Middle’ housing morass
  6. Morning Poll: Should gas-powered leaf blowers be banned?
  7. Arlington resident dies in house fire in Augusta County
  8. ACPD: Officers assaulted by drunk men in Rosslyn, Crystal City and Pentagon City
  9. New pizza place moving in after former Clarendon late night spot Goody’s closes
  10. Seven years since debut, how’s the region’s first rapid bus transit system faring?
  11. An “Uncommon” restaurant is set to open in Clarendon early next year
  12. Ask Eli: Cost of new construction homes in Northern Virginia
