have made the trip like we have. the crowds are still still filing in. in -- are still filling in. if they have tickets for the mall, that's for general seating area. we've seen a lot of people with obama shirts and flags. even some of the buttons. i ended up getting this button here. when i flew out to sfo, there was an obama volunteer who was handing out these buttons on the flight. there's estimated, 600,000, 800,000 people taking place at the mall to watch this ceremonial inauguration and among the people who will be there, political, and jim mip carter but the two former presidents bushes, are not obviously -- obviously george h.w. bush has been quite ill for a while. we understand the president has arrived at the capitol building and is having some coffee right now with some of the
congressional leaders. he made his traditional visit to st. john's church. they also made a trip to another church yesterday. and among those people to see that up close is bay area visitor alan antonio. >> they were actually attending services this morning. as we waited, they got in and there's nice video of mrs. obama waving with the motor came. >> reporter: they are here with their 9-year-old son who ashed a spot with the people to people -- earned a spot with the people to people leadership to be able to attend and witness the inall -- inauguration. this is their first trip to d.c. they are especially excited, since this is also martin luther king day. i feel so honored to be part of this moment in history. and just -- it represents
everything that dr. king fought for. as an african-american woman, i've been teary-eyed since i got off the plane. i've been teary-eyed since i got off the plane. >> reporter: and speaking of dr. martin luther king, one of his bibles will be used when the president is publicly sworn in in the next hour. the president will be using two bibles. the other one is one that was owned by abraham loin conand lincoln used the same bible when he was sworn in and president obama used it four years ago when he was sworn in this 2009. again, a lot of -- sworn in, in 2009. again, a lot of excitement. that will be followed by the inauguration address where he's supposed to speak for about 20 minutes. the second-term inauguration address, not usually memorable.
oftentimes it's a bit more of an olive branch and more poetic and less policy. and, of course, after the address, there will be the luncheon and then the parade and then the inaugural ball. so a busy day here in washington, d.c. reporting live i'm tori campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. >> tori, before you go, i know the excitement about warm up some of the atmosphere in washington, d.c. how cold is it there? how cold is it there for you where you are standing? [laughter] >> well, you -- >> reporter: it's not too bad. it was pretty chilly. i put some extra layers on. it's not too bad. but there's actually supposed to be a cold front coming in. there might be snow. it's supposed to dip in the 20s. i'm glad we're out here. it's fairly comfortablable as long as you are wearing layers, and gloves and a scarf.
>> and tori, give us an idea what it is like for you to stand out there. the excitement must be amazing. >> reporter: it is. especially at this location where we are. you can see quite a few barricades people are having to walk around them. but being right in front of the capitol dome, it's a beautiful sight and the this is -- there's a really good, genuine, positive feeling. historical in many ways, even though it's the second term for the president and vice president. but that's the reason why so many people are here. 1.8million were here for years ago. a lot of people are wondering how many people were here for president bush's second inauguration back in 2005. the latest estimates i heard about that, about 300,000. so again, at least twice that for this inauguration here in
2013. dave and pam? >> all right, tori. terrific job in washington, d.c. tori campbell from ktvu in the nation's capital. make sure you stay right here for all of the coverage. we'll carry the public swearing in live. we'll also stream the events on ktvu.com. and mobile ktvu. before we turn it over to that, let's check in with sal. >> here's a look at the major ones. the toll plaza looks good. we started with 880. the toll plaza, this traffic is nice so you shouldn't have any worries. >> let's go to steve. all right. sunny and warm but changes start tomorrow. it looks like clouds start to roll in. but today by the coast, near 70 for some. >> all right. our coverage continues after the break.
