    I was driving into Manhattan, listening to Howard and talking to one of my friends on my cell. I heard
    Howard mention that someone just flew into the World Trade Center. I knew this was fucked up
    so I got off the phone, turned around and went home. I watched the rest of the events unfold on tv.

    In the 90s, I used to go to the WTC almost every day. I had some accounts there, I had friends who worked
    there, I went to Moran's after work for Happy Hour, I took the PATH into the WTC when I was living in Hoboken, I
    celebrated New Years Eve at the Windows on the World one year, etc etc. I have big panoramic pics of me and
    my friends in front of the Towers. I miss seeing them in the skyline when I drive into the city.

    Worst of all, though, I lost friends that day.

    My GF and I woke up, made some coffee, played some Nintendo 64 :jj:

    When I finally turned on the news, I couldn't tell WTF was going on. I had to call my Mom to find out what had happened.

    I was just kinda stunned most of the day but when I got home I lost it and cried in front of my girlfriend like a newborn woman

    Driving to work, listening to Howard. Got into the clubhouse as soon as he said that a small plane had hit the tower...I turned on the tvs and a few golf pros and I watched the 2nd plane hit. I'll never forget that day...

    I was taking one of my MCSE classes, they shut the place down for the day because it was so close to Pearson International Airport.
