I live in Adams Morgan too. I usually commute out to Rockville on the Metro but I told my boss there is no way I'm getting on the train that day. Plus with all the bars open extra long, who knows if anyone in the neighborhood will be able to get any sleep the night before.

I won't argue with you about that. As someone who grew up in Wisconsin, I can't believe when they close school for an inch or two of snow here. But in this case, I think its going to be awful. They are expecting up to 2.5 million visitors for the inauguration. Any city would be overwhelmed by that many visitors.
If I lived where I used to (27 mi west of the District near Dulles Airport) and worked where I used to (upper NW) Inauguration probably wouldn't have messed with my day that much ...
Don't be too sure of that. They announced today that all the bridges between VA and DC will be closed to cars (buses, taxis, and limos are allowed). That means many of the VA drivers going to the city will be headed north on the Beltway to Maryland to go into the city that way.
