Vigil for Teen Killed in Crash — “Students gathered for a candlelight vigil outside of Washington-Liberty High School tonight for Braylon Meade, the teen killed by an alleged DUI driver early Friday morning. Amid tears, Meade, a W-L basketball player, was remembered as a well-liked, hard-working and caring young man. His father also spoke at the vigil, which was attended by hundreds of people.” [Instagram]

Notable Mansion for Sale — “Mansion on a hill for sale. With a storied history. The old M.T. Broyhill Place, looming at 2561 N. Vermont overlooking the Washington Golf and Country Club, is empty and on the market for $3.6 million. When owner Helena Metzger died this February at 88, her beneficiary–the Catholic Prelature of Opus Dei –wasted no time seeking a residential buyer for a private home that for decades doubled as a meeting place for religious retreats and cotillion dances.” [Falls Church News-Press]

Rep. Beyer Joins Mastodon — “I have a new social media account, if you are joining Mastodon and want to stay in touch there! Follow me here.” [Twitter]

Local ER Remains Busy — From Dr. Mike Silverman of Virginia Hospital Center: “ER volumes remain really high. We closed out last week with another record week when it comes to volume. That was back to back weeks of the highest volumes we’ve seen in a 7 day period. These are not records we want to set. With that said, we’re doing a ton of COVID testing since so many patients are presenting with fever, cough, shortness of breath, and other flu-like (or COVID-like) symptoms. Fortunately, our COVID numbers have not increased and our percent positive rate has also been steady.” [Facebook]

AWLA Shelter is Full — From the Animal Welfare League of Arlington: “We’ve got a Full House! From today until Nov 18, you can ‘Name Your Price’* for all of our adoptable small companion animals! We have so many wonderful pets waiting to meet you, so visit the shelter today or check them out online.” [Twitter]

Questioning HQ2 — “Today the rumble of construction trucks and the din of jackhammers are the soundtrack of life in Crystal City, the neighborhood where, theoretically, thousands of Amazon workers will report to new offices a year from now. The project is envisioned as a white-collar 21st-century paradise, complete with interlacing parks, child care centers, and even a facial spa. It sounds so utopian, so ideal, so… 2019.” [Protocol]

Freeze Warning Overnight — “WHAT…Sub-freezing temperatures around 28 to 32 degrees expected. WHERE…Portions of central, northeast, northern and southern Maryland, The District of Columbia and northern Virginia. WHEN…From midnight tonight to 9 AM EST Monday.” []

It’s Monday — Clear and cool throughout the day. High of 48 and low of 33. Sunrise at 6:52 am and sunset at 4:57 pm. []
