also rumors of 500,000 people on the mall.

we're still going to go.

I like that version too

eta: Chance of "light snow" on Sunday. Are sneakers okay for "light snow" or do I have to go out and get different shoes?

I'm from Florida.

Hey, I'm from California and I'm going to be frozen. I'm wearing snow boots just in case. They are really warm and waterproof. You can find them at Target or one of those stores on sale right now, probably!

I think you should be fine with sneakers. DC freaks out when it comes to snow. The Fed Gov't shuts down at the sight of just a few inches of it. Wusses.

Well, it's supposed to be 32F Friday morning in Tampa, so at least I'll get a taste of it before I leave

no way.. i am pretty sure they don't allow overnight camping especially at the Lincoln Memorial or any other location like that. Gates/doors don't open to the event until 8am. See kelly's post a page or two ago.

while I was heading towards the WH.... all these fed employeies were let out of work early ? 3 PM-- against the tide I was!

Ok. I can go. got someone to work for me and I got train reservations. My train leaves Philly at 4:55 am and gets to DC at 7am. My return leaves at 7:20 pm. Do you think that is ok or too early.

2 bridges are closed for the concert to all types of traffic (including walking). They're really going overboard with these closures.

And half a million people will stretch a looong way - past the monument probably.

Smithsonian or GW look like the best metro stops - they have a lot of the mall fenced off from Constitution Ave. around 19-23rd st.
