Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. re-administered the oath to Mr. Obama on Wednesday evening, one day after the two men stumbled over each other’s words during the inauguration ceremony at the Capitol. For their do-over, the two men convened in the White House Map Room at 7:35 p.m. for a brief proceeding that was not announced until it was completed successfully.But right-wing conspiracy theorists are still going to be obsessed with this in the future, mark my words!
...only nine people witnessed the do-over. There were four aides, four reporters and a White House photographer present on Wednesday evening. Mr. Obama raised his right hand and did not use a Bible.Emphasis mine.

We play with vocabulary flash cards with Amado and he can "read" these words without seeing the picture. I bet he's recognizing the shape more than reading, though he can read numbers up to at least 14 (though he refuses to say "13" - bad luck I guess), so who knows.
Police are warning motorists to drive cautiously during this cold snap, saying road salt loses its ability to melt the ice when temperatures gets low enough. [Around -10C. As I write this it is -19C.]

Canadian Press: TORONTO — Toronto has opened seven city-run facilities to help people keep warm until a major power outage that hit the city overnight is repaired.
About 22,000 Toronto Hydro customers lost electricity when a broken water main flooded a power station at about 10 p.m. Thursday night.
The power went off in sub-zero temperatures in a mostly residential area just west and north of the downtown core.
Toronto Mayor David Miller could not say when power would be restored. Toronto Hydro earlier said it would take 18-to-24 hours.
Miller asked residents in the affected area to check on their neighbours, particularly seniors, and help them get to a warm place. He also urged homeowners to prevent pipes from freezing by running the tap at the lowest point in the residence.
The outage forced a closure of some east-west subway stations in the affected area (from the Keele to Bathurst stations). A fleet of shuttle buses was being employed to carry passengers through the morning rush.
