The NOAA National Weather Service forecast, as of 10:30 a.m. this morning for Fairfax County tonight, is for a 70 percent chance of rain, but mainly after midnight, with south winds from 15-25 mph, and lows in the mid-60F range. So keep an eye on your masterpieces and try to illuminate and photograph them earlier rather than later this evening. Good luck!
UPDATE ... Hickory Cluster residents put on a great show for trick-or-treaters, parents, friends, and neighbors, despite a chilly, rainy evening.
And there were lots of other well-carved and brightly-lit jack-o'-lanterns throughout the cluster to enjoy.

The Reston Story by local Peabody Award-winning filmmaker, and USC School of Cinema-TV Master of Fine Arts graduate, Rebekah Winger-Jabi. Local cinematographer Ross Kirby will film Goodman House exteriors and cluster grounds from public Common Areas during the next few days and evenings of good weather, hopefully before all the leaves fall. The film will premiere on April 5, 2014 as part of Reston 50th Anniversary Celebration activities. Tax-deductible donations through the Reston Museum fund the project.
Reston RELAC President Mark Waddell advised that yesterday, October 9, 2013 was the official end of the 2013 Cooling Season when RELAC turned off its chillers and pumps at 12:00 noon. Community air-conditioning chilled water will be available again in May 2014. As noted in 1974 RELAC guidance, and to avoid over-pressurizing and bursting summer cooling coils, customers should not turn off both RELAC valves when using their winter furnace heating system. Always leave the return valve open.
