Welcome to Thursday Open Thread, where we pass the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest in Alexandria, Virginia.

Have something you want discussed? Hit me up at this link. You can submit items about whatever you want to talk about – just please keep it clean.

Topics can include what is going on Alexandria, Virginia, Northern Virginia, local politics, or any other local topic of interest, in the comments. An interesting question I have is, how are you dealing with this year’s pollen? Check out this video from Millville, NJ.
