I was working at U.S. Customs in the Ronald Reagan Building when word first started to dribble in about an incident in NYC.
My wife called to tell me about a huge traffic jam around the Pentagon and then about possible plane crashes. She urged me to get home as quickly as possible.
I took the Metro to Twinbrook with some of my colleagues and surprisingly, for Metro, the trip was smooth, other than the constant comments from passengers about what they had heard. There was a huge traffic jam on the local streets as people were frantically trying to get wherever they were going.
I tried calling my kids school to see what was going on there, and I was told that they were on lockdown, but would be released shortly.
