I was living in Washington DC at the time, working in the Dupont Circle area and living in Crystal City. I remember feeling so terrified and powerless. I had problems getting home because my usual route home took me near the pentagon and all roads heading in that direction were closed. A kind officer finally allowed me to take a back road to my house. The burning smell lingered for weeks.
I was on my way to the post office to pick up my mail. It was just after the second plane hit. If I remember correctly I picked my girls up from school (then kindergarten and 4th grade). Sadly it turned into a days-long-nightmare. I'm in SW Virginia.
I was watching Good Morning America and it was interrupted with the first attack and everyone initially thought it was just a small plane that crashed into the Towers. Sadly for everyone it was no accident.
