I had just gotten to work before the 1st plane hit the WTC. There weren't any TVs, and the internet sites were crashing from too many users, so we all gathered around radios and listened in complete shock as the 2nd plane hit the other tower. Shortly afterwards we would hear the fighter jets taking off from Andrew's Airforce Base and the noise made many of us scream. I work for a county gov't, and we stayed open, but the taller buildings were closed as a precautionary measure since we are close to DC. Many of my co-workers had family, friends, and neighbors who worked at the Pentagon. I remember that when they shut down the skies, it was so eerily quiet, and no one was on the roads either - you could feel the shock in the air and everyone just wanted to be home with their loved ones. It was so scary, and all still seems so clear even though it's been 7 years.
