I was making my rounds feeding dry cows and heifers. I'd just pulled up to a barn, blew the horn and was listening to the radio waiting on the cows to come up when the first plane hit. Was about two stops later when the second one hit. I then for got all about feeding and high tailed it to the closest TV. The eeriest part for me was the next few days when there were no airplanes to be seen in the sky. I didn't realize how many planes we were used to seeing everyday.

I was working on a project and the engineer over the project told me about the two planes hitting the WTC. The days following with no airplanes was indeed an eerie experience. I do remember seeing some military jets flying and they all seemed to be in a hurry going somewhere. IMO many people today have forgotten the event or downplay the real significance of the attack.

My son was born the day before, so I was sitting in the hospital room watching it all unfold on tv.

That had to suck bigtime! What went through your mind? I know what went through mine, as my daughter was only just over 1 year old. She's 18 now and it all turned out better than I thought it would.  buddybeer
