9/11/01? I hate these kind of threads, but I thought it might be interesting to see where people were, what they remember, and what their first reactions were. I was working at a new job for a British cmpany and just arrived at work in Baltimore when the receptionist came in and said a plane had hit the WTC. My first impression was *Oh, OK, some sightseeing Cessna or something hit the tower* Then she said another one hit and we all knew what was up. Everyone left work, but I stayed. Rob had trouble getting home on Metro in DC (we weren't living in sin at the time). The spookiest thing was working at the end ofthe takeoff runway at BWI and having it suddenly fall silent for a week. I left on the first Virgin Atlantic flight for London a week later. Getting through security and onto the plane took 4 hours. Guess I am kind of apathetic about the whole thing these days. Don't know why.
