I just bought my books for the new semester at Bryn Mawr college, and am about to head to the train station into Philadelphia, where, like Obama, I will begin my trip to the inauguration. It's about 30 degrees and snowing here, and the same in DC, so I'm as bundled up as I will be tomorrow for the swearing in. My Greyhound ticket doesn't promise me a seat on the bus, so I'll be getting to the station early and hoping to grab a seat. Many of my friends at school have already caught earlier buses for the inauguration, and it's a wonder the college hasn't canceled class for tomorrow. Can't wait to report on the youth ball tonight, and the swearing in tomorrow!
