I woke up to my mom screaming "The worlds ending"!! She managed to burst into my locked room to make this announcment. I turned the VCR on and hit record on FOX and went back to bed. I woke up again about 20 minutes later by my mom again to see if I was watching the events unfolding on TV. I actually focused on the TV and realized a freak accident was actually quite something more. A few hours later I received a phone call from Cast Scheduling saying that Disneyland was closed and I had the day off. I took the liberty of saving the message on tape before it was auto-deleted from my voicemail.
I have- and always will live near the Resort so a close friend and I took a walk to the Harbor and Katella. I remember few cars were driving, and those that were on the street were hauling major butt (the majority of the cars we saw were Anaheim Police). Both of us have our own copy of the marquee just past 7-11 across from the Convention Center that says "Theme Parks Closed Today". My photo (sorry I don't have a scanner) has a van in the background and you can clearly make out "God Bless NY & America" freshly painted on his side window. I figured that's one for the books when I'm old.
I began to call up a few co-workers, friends, and family members to make sure everything was OK, then went home- listened, and waited just like the rest of you.
Same thing, i was listening to KFI 640 when i heard the news... except when i woke up, all i heard was, "OMG, the (whatever the first tower that collapse) has just collapse. I repeat, collapse. This is the sadest day in American History."
though i wasnt a CM then :P
