Here's a picture I took at about 1 PM from the park across the street from the capitol.
What you can't see from this angle is the drive directly in front of the building. The crowd at the top of the hill is some 20 people deep. I'm guessing the crowd ran 5-600. Not bad for approximately 2 days notice.
The shroud on the building top is so you won't notice the Democrats scraping the gold off the dome.
