But as you'll note from the last few pictures posted here, what we mostly saw EVERYWHERE in the city was porta-potties. Rows and rows of them in every open field. (insert corny joke here--"There's going to be a really big POTTY in DC this week.") I've read there are over 3,000 porta potties, and that's still only about one porta-potty per 500 people who are expected to be in DC for the inauguration. See why I don't want to be there? At least the temperatures have warmed up to the 30's today; it was only in the teens on Friday. Kent has inauguration day off from work-all federal employees do--since most of the roads into DC will be closed on Tuesday.
And in terms of history being made, our family chipped away at the Berlin wall back in 1989, so we've had our turn at being present when history was being made. That's pretty hard to top.
This is the stand where the swearing in will take place.
