And people are freaking out.

A source tells us emails are flying as staffers try to figure out what’s going on.

“It looks like snow, only it’s not anything that nature could come up with. Where it’s coming from and why remain a mystery. Exploded dry cleaners? Cargo plane dropping mattresses?” Melissa Lafsky of, which is also based in the building, writes.

“Is is a 9-11 thing,” one guy on Twitter asked.
