    I was at work, everyone thought I was joking when I sent the link to sky news out about it.

    I was being alcohol breath tested by the police when it first came on the radio. We were both stunned.
    It was the first he'd heard also.

    about 9 am, standing in the doorway to my office - someone outside said a plane had crashed into the WTC, and everyone was standing up in their cubes - that's when i knew this was serious.

    Was at work as well. A telivision was on in the break room. I walked in as news was replaying the second strike on the WTC. Completely stunned.

    In a cavern, in a canyon,
    Excavating for a mine,
    Dwelt a miner, forty-niner
    And his daughter Clementine.
    Oh my darling, Clementine

    I was driving down the road ... I dont' watch much TV and hadn't yet turned on the radio ~ when I got in my truck, I finally did turn on the radio and heard only " ... evacuating (parts of) downtown Dallas ... "...with the air attacks on the WTC in NY ..." " ... (something about the) Pentagon ..." 10 minutes I listened and still didn't hear exactly what had happened ... I called my husband who was on the way to work ~ he hadn't turned on his radio, so he had no idea ... I was close to his work place (the closest television I knew of) so I popped in there to find out what had happened ... everyone in teh dlrship was watching teh televisions stunned by what they were seeing ~ not sure if what they saw was really what they just saw.

    i was watching west wing here in australia and talking on the phone with my busines partner in canada and when the program ended they jumped straight to the story and the first thing i saw was a burning tower, then the second plane hit, and i said something profane and my partner was on the phone going 'what? what?' so i told him to go to his tv and we both talked for about a half an hour before other calls started coming in.. my old boss who was in spain, my father. All the time i was trying to call my friend in NYC and it took hours to get through to her but she was ok.

    i spent 4 years in new york and i still find this so hard to believe.

    I was at work in the UK, as soon as we heard about it we switched the tv on in the office and kept it on all afternoon while we were there. Still can't believe it, took me right back to when i was a kid watching the challenger accidnet on tv.
