Morning roundup

By Washington Post editors

It should be a good morning for those of you heading out Monday, simply because there should be fewer of you out there. Dr. Gridlock tells us it's one of the lightest traffic weeks of the year, but there are a few things to keep an eye on.

And the Capital Weather Gang tells us the cold may be one of those things. The mild weekend weather says good-bye and a blast cold moves in this week. Right now it looks like New Year's Eve will bring a snow/sleet/rain mix and New Year's Day could bring snow flurries.

But before we get to the weekend, here's what's going on now:
-- A 20-year-old college student abandoned as a baby is reunited with the two people who discovered her on a doorstep in Fairfax.
-- Finding a final resting place for a mother splits a family.
-- And the collapse of the D.C. housing market has forced some developers to develop new careers.

In other news, Channel 7 reports that two people were killed in an early morning crash Monday in Fairfax. The District government is suing the purchaser of D.C. tax liens, according to the Examiner. Aeon Financial is accused of charging and collecting excessive legal fees to homeowners trying to reclaim property. And Channel 9 reports that police are investigating a plane crash in Frederick this morning that may have been a botched robbery attempt.
