5. No. Had reservations since March. Canceled them and watched on the big screen.
Warm in our living room.

Hell of a view.

6. No, I watched it from my warm home
I don't like traveling long distances to stand for hours in the bitter cold to only see a tiny speck in the distance.

7. Nope. I didn't miss a thing where I was in TN!
And it will be one of the greatest memories of my life.

8. In some ways...
... but in others, I was glad I watched it from my warm living room where i could see every facial expression on the Obama's and attendee's faces. I'm glad I could weep openly and reflect on the moment in a private way. I'm glad that I could follow and see all of the other events throughout the day - like coverage of the luncheon and every entry in the parade.
