On 9/11, I was working all morning, didn't have TV or Internet up. Went out for late lunch and nobody was outside, everything was closed. Spookiest thing ever.
The Chinese place I went to every couple days wasn't really open but let me in, and it was being reported on the big screen TV they usually had Chinese soap operas on. And we sat and ate and watched in horror.
So, yeah. I kinda hope someone gets to share that experience.
