Tuesday Morning Rundown

Fall flowers at Smartmarkets

Bundle Up —  The National Weather Service says the high on Tuesday will be 30 degrees — about 20 degrees less than Monday and way below the average for Nov. 18. Oh, and it will be windy, too, with wind chills making it feel like single digits and teens. [Capital Weather Gang]

Helping Out — Terraset Elementary’s Student Council led a schoolwide food drive last week to collect canned goods for the Herndon-Reston FISH. The students collected 1,215 cans of food to help support their local community. Want to make a similar donation? Cornerstones food drive continues through this week. [Cornerstones]

Alcohol Prices Rise — The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board approved three pricing adjustments Monday as part of Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s plan to plug a $2.4 billion gap in the two-year state budget. Prices will rise on miniature bottles, doubled the $1 case handling fee and agreed to round up the last digit of all prices to 9. The rise is expected to raise about $5 million this fiscal year and $9 million in fiscal year 2016. [WTOP]

A Long Silver Line Ride — A good number of Silver Line riders disembarking for jobs in Tysons Corner and Reston are taking it a long distance — from Prince George’s County and D.C. They say they are fine with the long commute and could not afford to live close to their jobs in Western Fairfax County anyway. [Washington Post]

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.

He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead.
