I was on a school bus on the way to school.
First clue that something funny was going on was the bus driver getting a bunch of jabber from the dispatcher over radio about how the FAA was grounding all flights in america.
My first thought was “what the heck?”
Then I got to school, saw a plate repeatedly hitting what I later learned was the world trade center (hello, bad grades in geography).
I’m sad to say that I *still* didn’t know what was going on.
I’m a little confused about what happened after that…
I eventually found out from one or more of the following:
* News the next days about what was going on
* Badly received spanish TV signals rambling about “ataque en america”
