Did the Presidential train come near you? Did you brave to cold to see this historic sight. Would you have if it came to your town?

Well damn, no body told me it was coming to Canada! LOL So sorry, I missed it,*sigh*. If I'd known, I would have gone for sure, if only to wave MY flag at it! LOL

That's OK it didn't get to the West Coast either. Guess we don't count. We get to see it all on TV if nothing else to do.

I didn't really pay attention to the train. I was present at another historical event though, I was at Grant Park in downtown Chicago on election night. My brother and I stood there watching the results come in on a big screen they had set up, and before we knew it, we had a newly elected president. It was a great moment, a great atmosphere, and a great speech.

I live in New Jersey, close enough, but I wouldn't go out in the cold to see it. It is on TV, so I can watch from home if I wanted to. I think it only went through PA, DE and Maryland, rather short trip. It is really cold on this side of the country and I tend not to brave it if I do not have to.

Hey pat! I don't think that the train came here, but I really don't know if it did! And no, I wouldn't brave the cold not even to get a tiny glimpse of the President to be! I am very excited about Obama taking office and can't wait for him to be our next President, but I haven't let my apartment since Monday and I won't leave it until the temperature goes above the 20's again! I sent my boyfriend out to do the errands since it doesn't bother him as much as it does me! This cold is too much for me! I will be watching all day Tuesday to see all the festivities from my TV! Hopefully, it will have warmed up a bit by then!
