Yay! We are here shivering on the ground but the sun is coming out and we hope the feetwarmers will kick in soon. Anne was reminiscing about the last time we got up this early for Barack: nov 4. But that morning was a freakish 70 degrees in Wisconsin! Not so much today. The streets were jam packed when we finally got to the right gate for our tickets (7am) but we were warmer, all mashed together. That's it for now, my fingers are freezing!
We are on the local bus in the way downtown, and about 30 people got on at our stop! The bus is crowded! Everyone is talking excitedly, wide awake, all bundled up. We are going to Foggy Bottom, and catching the metro there to the Federal Center stop, where we will get in line to go through screening. Hopefully we will get a good viewing spot!
