Ten years ago today, I posted this to an Internet chat group...
coming from the Pentagon when we got the word. My car pool had to abandon the car in the building's garage, since security wouldn't open the doors -- said they were checking out a suspicious car.
We took the Red Line to Metro Center and caught a Yellow Line (yes, a yellow line at Metro center; what a day). At Foggy Bottom, the door wouldn't close on the back car and they took the train out of service. We Yellow Lined it in another train to King St. and caught a Blue Line to Springfield. Over all, though, we consider ourselves very lucky.
Before we left work, we saw the video images on CNN.com of the 2nd crash into the World Trade Ctr. My God!
