A large, happy crowd

Andrew Newby said the crowd was different.

A 32-year-old litigation technologist from Burlington, he drove up to the inauguration with his wife Kate and a friend, Heather Stam.

The three stood just outside a crush of people waiting for the ceremony to begin this morning. The bitter cold and a line that filled an entire city street from building to building did not seem to bother people, however.

"I've never seen such a large, happy crowd," he said.
