Arlington Woman Turns 107 — “What’s the secret to living a long and healthy life? Just ask Vera Punke! Vera just turned 107-years-old and celebrated her big milestone with a birthday party Wednesday in Arlington, Virginia. ‘I tell you – I don’t feel any different than when I was 100!’ she told FOX 5.” [Fox 5]

Labor Day Weekend Closures — “Arlington residents will bid farewell to summer as the season unofficially ends with Labor Day weekend. As families hold backyard barbecues or head to the beach for some late summer fun, there will be various closures for the holiday. Labor Day falls on Monday, Sept. 5, when Arlington County government offices will be closed along with other services. Some other services like transit will be open with schedule changes.” [Patch, WMATA]

Missing Middle’s Election Impact — “The controversial proposal to gut single-family zoning across Arlington is likely to take center stage in the three-candidate race for County Board that kicks off next week. But will the public’s views really hold sway with County Board members, and will the opposition have any resonance in a county where Democrats normally win more than 60 percent of the vote in any election?” [Sun Gazette]

County: Be Prepared — “National Preparedness Month is observed every September to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies. The 2022 theme is ‘A Lasting Legacy’ with the following tag line: ‘The life you’ve built is worth protecting. Prepare for disasters to create a lasting legacy for you and your family.'” [Arlington County]

Another I-395 Exit Crash — From Dave Statter: “#CaughtOnCamera: Another almost rollover at I-395S Exit 8C after a driver stops on the highway & makes a left turn. Two of the #395cam(s) caught this one at 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.” [Twitter]

Va. Train Ridership Rises — “Passenger counts on Virginia’s state-supported train services hit an all-time high in July, with more than 110,000 travelers. That’s an increase of nearly 29 percent from June and a jump of nearly 20 percent from pre-pandemic levels, according to the Virginia Passenger Rail Authority (VRPA).” [Sun Gazette]

September Staying Hot — “While it’s now meteorological fall (defined as September through November), September can be a summer sibling in many ways. Washington can experience strong heat and humidity at times during the ninth month. In the coming weeks we expect it will generally feel more like summer than fall.” [Capital Weather Gang]

It’s Friday — Clear throughout the day. High of 84 and low of 67. Sunrise at 6:40 am and sunset at 7:39 pm. []
