I had just got back from driving my hubby into work. I remember looking at the sky and thinking man it was so blue! I stepped into my home and the phone rang. A woman that works with my dad was on the line and asked if my husband was in the city. He was due to go in towards the mid afternoon. I said no why? She said you have not seen the news????? I turned on my tv and there is was. I hung up on her and called my hubby. He said to come get him that the colleges are locking down for safety. I drove 90 to get him - 1 hour away - and all the while cops and fire personnel were driving the opposite way to the city. I then drove to Yonkers to grab my dad. He is a postal worker and works off the hudson river. Only 20 minutes from the City. He was the last worker out and in charge of locking up the post office. We went home and watched the news. It was horrible.

I was at work in a ladies home so we were able to watch it all unfold. The first 20 minutes were very crazy because my brother lives there and I wasn't able to get ahold of him for awhile. In the end he was safe!!!!

I was at my most recent job, pn the phone with a patient. I heard the radio and started freaking out because my uncle & cousin worked in NYC. I knew at one point my uncle worked in the WTC...thought I heard he had gotten transferred to another building, but wasn't positive at the time. (He worked there during the '92 bombing, but was 2 blocks away on his lunch break!) Turns out he had been transferred a few months earlier and him and my cousin (who worked in the World Financial Center) both made it home safely...around 8:00 PM. My uncle is now retired and my cousin changed professions.

We got out of work early that day and I sat in front of the TV all day with my mom until my brother, dad and dh got to the house, praying for everyones saftey.
