Here's a short video of our inauguration activities from this afternoon. I've never tried to attend one of these before. We could not get downtown and that would have been just a nightmare anyway to try to do by myself with the kids in this weather. It is very cold to be standing around, so this side of the river was close enough. I know we could have watched it from the comfort of our living room but I really wanted to be out and about to share this historic moment with my City. The square was very crowded but we could still see the "jumbotron" screen. There was some energy because of the crowd and the cheering and clapping, just clearly not on the same scale as the mall! The footage of all those people was just incredible!
