Is today the coldest day in the region in a decade? Heck, we'd agree. It sure feels like it to us. And with the wind chill, it'll feel like -5 degrees. Luckily, it'll warm up a bit in the next few days, but won't get any higher than the 30s. So stay warm, Washington.

What else is going on the next few days besides it being wickedly cold? Oh, that's right, Inaugurationpocalypse. You're keeping up to date with our daily coverage, right? We've got the scoop on inauguration news, dining, fashion, nightlife and more. We are owning inauguration. Keep your eyes on the site this weekend as well, as we'll be reporting from inaugural balls, concerts, parties and more. It's a tough life, but we're willing to do it to keep you informed.
