President Bush Declares Federal Emergency For DC During Inauguration 01-14-2009 3:33 AM (Washington, DC) -- The District will be eligible for federal funds to help pay for costs linked to the inauguration after President Bush Tuesday declared a federal emergency for the city. The White House, in a statement, says the money will be made available to pay for, quote, "protective measures that are undertaken to save lives and protect public health and safety." The Federal Emergency Management Agency will reimburse the District for eligible expenditures on Inauguration Day above the 15-million dollars already budgeted last year for the day's events.

DC area residents should not be alarmed to see and hear military aircraft overhead today
We'd be alarmed if there weren't.

Wasn’t there one of these on or about Sept. 11, 2001?

re: In the event of inclement weather, the exercise will be postponed until Thursday.
Are we to take it from this that we have an agreement with the terrorists to hold their attacks for a day with good weather?

Eh, I hear aircraft all the time. I live near the flightpath for Reagan National. Also, plenty of choppers flying around for all the auto mishaps on the beltway. Construction everywhere and the drivers here suck, even in the best of conditions. I won’t notice anything different. What I would notice is no aircraft noise at all.

Must be a real pain to interrupt Stargate operations to put on this show. NORAD is just a cover for the SGC. ;-)
