Well, the plans are finalized – next Tuesday, January 20, 2009 I will be in Washington DC for Inauguration Day. It’s still unknown if I’ll be able to GET to the actual Inauguration; there are various websites predicting a major traffic and transportation meltdown. But I’ve got a warm jacket and walking shoes so if need be, I can hike it!
All over the country and around the world, people will be watching on television, and I hope a lot of students get to watch too. Kevin Jarrett has pulled together some Inauguration Day Resources for teachers and students to explore for background information and lesson ideas.
Think of me while you are warm and dry!
PS I’ll try to Twitter and send pix, but it’s expected that the text and Internet will be heavily taxed in the area. Follow me on Twitter if you’d like to see me try!

Sounds very exciting! Best of luck in getting a good seat.
Sylvia, thanks for the plug – travel safe – how fantastic it will be to experience the inaugural – even if you’re not able to witness the actual ceremony, you will be “there” and the experience will be one of a lifetime, to be sure. See you at EduCon on Friday night! -kj-
You might enjoy the photos I took yesterday up here in DC. I will be leaving tomorrow to go back home to SC but I took some pictures of the preparation. http://www.flickr.com/photos/23240330@N03/sets/72157612599749501/
I’ll be there too. Just look for the tall guy by the jumbotron.
Enjoy and keep us posted!
I will be at home, flying my flag at half mast to honor the memory of our Second Ammendment. Obama and Biden have long histories of efforts to destroy that right, and have publicly announced their agenda to continue its destruction, albeit in euphemistic terms.
A functional Second Ammendment is the only reason they cannot take the other nine away.
