More DCA Work Arriving Soon — “The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, fresh off the opening of a new concourse and security checkpoint screening area, is preparing to launch a multiyear effort to rehabilitate two of National’s three runways and their associated taxiways… Scheduled to last as long as 850 days and cost up to $110 million, the work will include new centerline and touchdown zone lighting systems, runway edge light fixtures and the installation of a temporary asphalt batch plant.” [Washington Business Journal]

Slight N. Va. Real Estate Price Dip — “The median sales price for homes that sold in Northern Virginia in July stood at $580,000, according to figures reported by the Virginia Realtors trade group. While higher by nearly 5 percent than the $553,000 recorded in July 2021, the $580,000 figure trails the median sales price of $583,000 for the first seven months of 2022.” [Sun Gazette]

It’s Officially Pumpkin Spice Season — “Starbucks’ annual announcement that you can now, if you wish, buy this drink typically prompts a bunch of crankiness on the internet. Personally, I welcome the PSL’s arrival, as well as the appearance of pumpkin beer in shops for one reason… For me the PSL’s seasonal emergence means one important thing: the end of the godawful and relentless Washington, DC, summer is finally in sight.” [Washingtonian]

It’s Wednesday — Clear throughout the day. High of 81 and low of 68. Sunrise at 6:38 am and sunset at 7:42 pm. []
