I was asleep...................we live in Washington State, so the first plane hit about 5:46AM our time. The second one hit at 6:02 AM our time. We get up about that time. Lots of the people we know said they saw on TV the second plane hit, but probably not, if they live here. They saw recordings of the Today show or Good Morning America, and it was live in New York, at the time it was recorded. Not live for us.
Didn't turn on the television until Dave called me after he got to his first repair job about 7:30, and the householder had said she would leave the TV on for him. He hadn't heard either.
We had relatives from New York staying with us because my cousin (the mother and mother in law of my houseguests) had died a few days earlier. They were due to go home that day, but had to postpone their departure obviously. My house quickly filled with everyone from out of town, who had come for Sharon's memorial. Crazy, horrible, day.
Bad week for our family.
