Up for the traditional prayer service at the Nat. Cathedral. Billy Graham preached the sermon & it was as always inspirational. Back to the W.H. where George & I both took our oaths as the Const. requires. Then all our friends & family were here for a buffet. Later in the afternoon entertained the cast of last nights gala & some others. Late in day members of inaugural committee came to me about canceling tomorrows parade & moving the ceremony into the Rotunda of the Capitol. The weather with wind chill factor is predicted to be more than 20 below zero. At that temp. exposed skin surface is subject to frostbite in about 15 mins. There is no way we should inflict this risk on all the people who would have to be out in the cold for hours.

King Hussein called with Congratulations. The Super bowl was won by S.F. & I flipped the coin on live T.V.
