We were having problems with the public Website first thing that morning, and I called one of the senior IT staff at our Virginia operations center.

She told me that she didn't think anyone would be worrying about the Website: "A plane just crashed into the World Trade Center."

Our agency's New York office was located in the World Trade Center complex. Part of one of the towers fell onto it. Several days later, we found out that all our New York colleagues had all escaped unharmed.

I remember going online to the predecessor to the current Shejidan C.J. Cherryh fan board and posting back and forth about what the rumors were versus what those of us in NYC and Washington were actually seeing. At one point there was a rumor that the Capitol had been hit, and I was able to disprove that one because my office was 4 blocks off the Mall at that time.

I stayed at work for the entire day, although I saw crowds streaming uptown on foot because the entrances to the Metro stations were shut - the crowds on the platforms had become so dense that the security staff was afraid people would be pushed onto the tracks.
