....to disappear like that!
I've been having one computer-virus-related problem after another and really didn't mean to leave everyone hanging!
I finished the semester a few weeks early and we managed to get up to DC for a few days. Nothing rouses my Holiday spirit quite like bus exhaust and Metro air!
To add to the festive mood, we were delighted to see the viewing stands are already being erected on Pennsylvania Avenue!! And, as we won't be able to actually attend the celebration in January, we purchased a few souvenirs, in anticipation of the Inauguration, and joyfully strolled Pennsylvania Ave through a light snow.
I didn't take any pics but TonyP has posted a few.
