I was sleeping and my now wife came in and turned on the TV. I couldn't believe it, I cept waiting for it to be some kind of george orwell joke like war of the worlds or something. I do remember that eerie vibe all of Denver, and like archer said everyone was very kind to there fellow americans. Too bad now most people on the road would sooner spit on you that let you cut in on traffic. It's like around christmas when everyone is nice. I think a great way to honor those lost would be to try and take care of each other every day and not just christmas or tragedies!Eight years ago right now I was at a Social Distortion concert. It was a Monday night and the opening band was Death on Tuesday. Kinda weird. Got to work the next day listening to the radio folks talk about the crash into the first tower, sat in my truck in the parking lot listening and made myself late. After the second plane hit I went inside and found just about everyone gathered around radios listening to what was going on. It was a very surreal drive home that day. Driving on I-17 it seemed that everyone was a bit more conscious of thier fellow man, no body getting cut off and if you turned on your blinker people let you in instead of blocking you out.
on 9-11 i was building a set for a client. partner and i stopped working and watched the shop tv all day. the day after i was building a haunted house next to rawhide and it was really eerie with no planes over head except for the occasional military jet.I was watching TV and packing my stuff for an archery elk hunt that day. Still drove up to 5BN and was amazed at how quiet the skies were. No aircraft other than Franklin's crews crossing the sky every so often. Very eery.
