WEEK IN REVIEW: Sandy Left Her Mark on Falls Church

Victim in house fire still not identified.

Hurricane turned Super Storm Sandy made her way through Falls Church early in the week and topped our headlines.

The storm left some Falls Church customers without power but Dominion Power restored power to the area. Some people found ways to entertain themselves while their power was out.

The storm didn’t stop people from getting out and voting as some Falls Church residents made it out Monday to cast their in-person absentee ballots.

There are no hotdog carts in the City of Falls Church but a new restaurant is changing that. The Windy Apple brings the best of Chicago and New York-style hotdogs under one roof to bring that hotdog cart feel to “The Little City.”

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue are still investigating a Falls Church fire that killed a person Monday. The identity of the victim still hasn’t been released.

Fairfax County police are still looking for those responsible for breaking out the windows of about 30 cars in September. Mason District Police Station Commander Capt. Gun Lee said he is certain the police will close this case with an arrest.

In sports, the Falls Church High Jaguars defeated JEB Stuart in the annual Bell Game, ending a two-game losing streak in the season finale. Sadly, neither Falls Church, Stuart, George Mason nor George Marshall’s football teams will be playing in the postseason this year.
