How did I find out about the September 11th, 2001 attack?

Where was I when I heard of the events unfolding on September 11th, 2001?

I received a phone call on my Motorola StarTAC cell phone from Cleveland Airport Crash Fire Rescue Assistant Fire Chief Joe Zemek. Excerpt from phone conversation below.

Sur: “Fluff, that’s in New York City….”

Zemek: “No, ATC picked up the plane making the turn over Cleveland right now.”

Sur: “Are you serious?”

Zemek: “It doesn’t sound good. This isn’t a drill Kev. It’s the real thing man.”
