RE the bombings and planes crashing...


Keep praying my friends. This is horrible. It's so hard to imagine..

My chair's wife saw the second plane hit from her apt. She called him at 850am....I have friends from the area, who were coming to take me to lunch..they are glued to their televison and the tunnels/roads out are all shut down...

I'm frightened and upset and so very very sad for those who have lost loved ones...

Cloudy, in mourning for NYC and DC

edit: I'm sorry..I'm so shook up I made this a thread when I intended to answer another existing one.. forgive me.. this is really unnerving..

Don't worry, Cloudy, I think everyone here understands you. It's worse for you than most of us because you actually LIVE in NY. Oh gods...
I mourn the innocents dead and those who will die because of this.

Thanks Kaz. I know people there and don't even know if they are ok. I do know that the mayor just gave orders to evacuate... my God! We have always been so sure we were safe.. surprising to find you are just as vulnerable as anyone else.

I just noticed you live in NY, Cloudy! Are you okay? How come you are relatively unaffected.
Have you news on Yorrik?

The governor has sent us all home.. employees are being told to leave government buildings.

I'm on my way home.

All circuits into the city are busy, as can be expected. I'm trying but really think it'll be a while til we know. Manhattan is isolated, they've blocked it off for now.

The pictures on television... it's just devestating. I heard on the news just now that the conservative estimate of life lost is going to be in the thousands.

Cloudy, profoundly sad

Avatar, thanks for the concern! I'm north of NYC by a few hours. I live near and work in the capitol of NY state, Albany. As a precaution, the Governor evacuated the state buildings and sent state workers home.

I'm so concerned for my friends IN the city right now! Yorick is one of them, but I've not heard from the others either.. it's nerve wracking!

I am here my freinds..with not much to say now but I am safe. I am pretty much stunned right now. I made it home through much turmoil and sadness. The Pentagon is still smoking here and a state of emergency has been declared. The blast was great and even shook my house which is 10 minutes drive away.

Cloudy and Conan, I am sooo glad you guys are ok. I have been praying constantly today for those in NYC and DC. It is so shocking and sad. We were told around 10 this morning at school, I was just shocked to hear about it. It was quite scary for us, since the plane was hijacked leaving Logan Airport in Boston, and we are just 30 mi. N of Boston. A friend of mine knew her dad was flying out to LA on business, and was scared to death. fortunately, her mom got the news her dad had arrived safely on a different plane. I am so grateful, but sad about all the people that have died or been hurt.

Again, I'll pray for all the people in NY and DC, and thank God that you are ok, Cloudy, and Conan. Please, everyone, even if you don't believe in God, just pray to anyone for those people in NY and the capital.
