Obama Family Plans to Get Out of DC for Inauguration Weekend

Washington, D.C., Jan. 15, 2009 – In response to predictions of up to 3 million people flocking to Washington, D.C. for inauguration weekend, President Elect Barack Obama and his wife have decided to “take the kids and get out of town for a long weekend.”

“It’s going to be a mess,” Obama said to a reporter outside of the Hay-Adams Hotel (his family’s temporary home), “People are going to be everywhere. I’m also hearing that there may be some wintry weather. Yikes. And you know the Metro system's gonna fail.”

The Obamas had planned to take the Metro from McPherson Square to Federal Center SW to join in the inauguration festivities, but—instead—they are going to pack up the car and go skiing. “We’re thinking Pennsylvania—either Ski Liberty or Whitetail. We’re not really sure yet,” said Obama, grinning ear to ear, “I mean, shoot, with the money we made renting our suite here at the hotel out on Craigslist, we could probably head out to Utah or Colorado!”
