From an AP story marking Obama’s first observance of 9/11 as president:
Nearly 200 White House staffers — from chief of staff Rahm Emanuel to kitchen workers — athered under a heavy downpour. Moments before the president and first lady stepped outside, the rain subsided and it held off as they placed their hands over their hearts and bowed their heads.
After the Obamas walked back into the White House, the rain resumed.
And perhaps I'm being overly sensitive, but it seems to me the AP can't resist getting in a parting shot at Darth Imperious. From a separate story:
George W. Bush, whose presidency was defined in part by that day, had no public appearances planned.
