Today is Friday, Nov. 2. Here are five things you need to know:
1.) NSTAR came through on its Thursday night prediction, as Arlington’s power situation returned to normal last night, according to the company’s outage map. Residents who had their electricity restored last night likely went more than 72 hours without it. At the height of Hurricane Sandy Monday evening, more than 3,000 of NSTAR’s Arlington customers were without power.

The ninth-seeded Spy Ponders (11-4-3) earned a bye in the same bracket and will open play at neighboring No. 8 Belmont (10-3-3) at 4 p.m. Sunday.
4.) From the town: AFD Reminds Residents: No Open Burning: Arlington is 1 of 22 communities in which open burning is not allowed due to the density of population and the close proximity of buildings. The limits on open burning do not apply to outdoor cooking, such as grills. Outdoor cooking appliances are defined as grills powered by LP, charcoal, or electricity. However, chimeneas, outdoor fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, and similar appliances designed for the primary purpose of heat and burning, are strictly prohibited and not allowed for use in the Town of Arlington. AFD will extinguish fires created by these appliances and violations may incur significant penalties. For details, please visit arlingtonma.gov/fire.
