Andy Brush checks in from downtown D.C.

Ann Arborite Andy Brush is in D.C. for Barack Obama’s inauguration. We’ll add to this article any updates he’s able to file through the day. So far:

Jan 20 3:10 p.m. A whole block of idling dump trucks along D Street southwest of White House. Security or emergency prep?

Jan 20 12:47 p.m. All done now. Unbelievable. Looks like the right person. Now the hard part. Shared the moment with folks from OK, VA, MD, OH, MI

Jan 20 8:45 a.m. We are in place @ Washington Monument. Full from here to the east. Arrived here to Springsteen singing The Rising. Sunrise too.

Jan 20 8:00 a.m. (approx) 18th St. heading south is like Hoover on football Saturday, but more so.

Jan 20 7:00 a.m. We are leaving for the National Mall right now. We stayed in Potomac. Getting on the Metro to head in. From a glance at the TV in the lobby, we won’t be the first ones there. MLK Day on the mall was a beautiful thing.

Jan 19 4:00 p.m. (approx) Muggin’ for the boom camera on MSNBC set on the mall.

Jan. 19 3:00 p.m. (approx) Loads of people checking out the Capitol Building where Obama will become prez tomorrow. Security barriers make moving very difficult.

Jan. 19 12:00 p.m. (approx) At the Michigan party. Granholm, Levin, Stabenow. Out of hot chocolate and coffee. Now off to find food.

Jan. 19 11:00 a.m. (approx) Capitol South Metro stop a madhouse – with happy people – all escalators just all switched to exit mode.

Jan 18 6:42 p.m. Sorry, got it wrong. It is: National Union of Friendly Americans. Now meeting more friendly people near the White House.

Jan 18 5:33 p.m. On the mall. Good feelings. Griendly people. Witnessed founding of: National Union of Friendly People.
