I was asleep, but was awakened by a phone call from my mother (who was at work) who told me about the first plane. The second plane hit about a minute or so after I turned the television on. And I was off the phone by then.

I was at work already. My boss stuck his head in my cube to say hello, and asked if Id heard a plane had hit the WTC. The guy in the next cube was from New York, and he hadnt heard it either. He and I walked to the break room with a TV, and within a few minutes the second plane hit. As we cursed and screamed, the break room suddenly filled with everybody in the building. 
After some time some mid-level boss came in and said we should get back to work. I answered to the effect that this wasnt just some accident, this was an attack. A few seconds later the first tower collapsed. 
Needless to say, not much work got done that day.
