We are still two days away from the Inauguration and Washington, D.C. is already very busy. We have been to many of the important spots in the City and have already reported live.
Click here to see some of the things we have already taken in and what you can expect if you are making the trip up here.
Keep in mind it is only Sunday. The big crowds aren’t even expected until Tuesday. This was the Metro Red Line between Gallery/Chinatown and Union Station.
It was a little packed. We were right up against the door. These crowds will only get bigger.
To the right is our field manager Matthew Harris in front of our live truck location. As you can see Matthew is bundled up, but isn’t dressed for the arctic. The weather was definitely cold today, but it wasn’t frigid. As long as you were dressed properly it wasn’t that difficult to manage.
Here was our view as we came out of the Smithsonian exit of the Metro at around 2: 30 this afternoon. The concert in front of the Lincoln Memorial was just beginning. There was quite a few people, but the crowds were kind and it was pretty easy get to where you needed to go. If you look closely in the back corner you can see one of the jumbotrons that many of the people who will be here for the event will see the actual Inauguration on.
If you are planning on coming up, you will see plenty of signs like these pointing you in the correct direction. If at any time you get lost their are Police officers and metro employees helping to guide you in the right direction.
Here is my report from Washington that aired tonight at 6pm. Tune in tonight at 11, for another report of all the activity leading up to Tuesday’s main event. Keep update with everything happening, including a slide show which is constantly being updated by us and people from Richmond at the event by going to nbc12.com.
