Blue Coffee was chock full of people, the marching bands were playing, the ABC/WTVD satellite truck was there, and people were milling about, smiling and laughing and watching the giant TV in the rain.
Southern HS Marching Band:
Celebration, complete with cut-out of President Elect Obama:
Cool recycling receptacle (hadn't noticed these before):
Major the bull, watching the returns:
Around 10:30pm I was cold, wet, and tired of standing around, so I headed home. They called it for Obama on MSNBC at 11:00pm and so I got to see the reactions from Grant Park and Times Square. Glad Durham had their own celebration too, even if in the rain.
