"May I have your attention please..." Part Deux

So, I went down to the lobby... only to find they'd blocked off the building. No one was being allowed back in, and they weren't allowing people out just yet. They blocked off 5th Avenue and Columbia St. as well, at least... more police cars and more fire engines showed up, and there was silence from the intercom system. A bunch of co-workers and I stood around in the lobby, starting to consider going home when they'd let people out...

After about an hour total, they finally removed the blocks around the building and let traffic start moving again. Then they came on the intercom and announced, "The Seattle Police Department has removed the blocks from around the building. We believe the threat is over. Please return to your jobs. Thank you."

Surreal... I imagine 'we believe the threat is over' means 'it was a box of spare office supplies but we're too embarassed to admit it'.
