Yup, ....we broke 120 year old cold record for last friday.
Minus 39 Celcius without windchill, 53 below with windchill.

That had to be the flattest inaugural speech I've ever heard. The audience was flat, which reflected the speech.
I understand Obama wrote his own speech this time. It showed.
Where was the Messiah today?

The speech wandered a bit but he must have said what he wanted to. He did have a lot to cover. There was a little dose of reality in it, a kind of warning that we'll have some things happen that will be initiated with the famous doctor's warning, "now this might hurt a little." As to the lack of a famous sound bite, so what?
"Asking not" and "fearing fear" were nice but no Presidential speech will ever top the Gettysburg Address. Abe wrote that, himself.
