Happy Monday, Washington! You think today's temps are chilly? Just wait until later this week, when a real cold front comes in. Temperatures won't rise above freezing.  

Baby animal lover? You'll be happy to know that a new baby gorilla was born over the weekend at the National Zoo. The zoo's updated their Flickr stream with photos of the newbie.  

Talk about poor planning—on Sunday, there was a rehearsal parade for the inauguration. Except one small thing went wrong—nobody let the public know that the oh-so-little-used roads of Independence and Constitution Avenues would be shut down.

Of course, the big presidential-related news over the weekend was the fact that Obama visited Ben's Chili Bowl with Mayor Fenty.

A fire gutted H Street, NE bar Rose's Dream over the weekend.
