WASHINGTON, DC — Can you imagine the hype and hysteria in the DC Metro errea, I mean, area right now?! Only a trip down to DC can give you a true sense of things to come. It was only Saturday and the Metro and DC Mall crowds are a sight to see. Honestly, I don’t know how people will manage to get down there on Tuesday, let alone egress from the Mall. I probably won’t make the trip down on Tuesday despite the obvious historical significance. It’s just gonna be nuts! I’m not the only who feels that way either. My close family friends from Atlanta made a trip up here just for the Inauguration only to find out the magnitude of expected attendees; well over two million people. Yeah, nuts!
We just decided to use Saturday as “I’ve Been There” day and use Tuesday to celebrate from the warm, toasty comfort of our homes. If Tuesday’s weather is anything like this evening’s painfully freezing weather, then I say more power to Beyonce and friends; I hope you bundle up nicely. We weren’t going away empty-handed, however. Metro cards–the paper variety–are available from the Metro card kiosks as are the special edition Metro-issued DC maps. That’s the most authentic and genuine Inauguration memorabilia you can get. Here’s some shots from tonight:
