And then this happened, in Melbournes main shopping street.
(tl;dr - Nutter drove 4 blocks along the footpath, mowing down everyone in his way.)
Called her - no answer.
Texted her - no answer.

3 hours later, she answered.
She's fine, was nowhere near the nastiness.

Today has not been a good day. [Frown]

Glad the druidling was OK, but that is terrible news to read.

TFD Kids not knowing what news that parents have may blow grown ups attempts to contact them. To get your message across you may have to reverse the story and let them stew.

I have no idea what TheMoMan just said. But maybe the core point is that when something strange happens, you and your children/parents might be on opposite sides of the news feeds. I have examples going both ways. Seven years ago I dropped my daughter off at the airport, where she had a ticket on US Flight 1549. I spent the morning working quietly in my office at home until I got a frantic call from my wife. She was frantic, but relieved, since the flight had been delayed, so they bumped her off because she would not make her connection. So, real tragedy, but I was oblivious.

On 9/11/01, I was again working in my office, when mail started coming from our VP about how we should drop everything to give support to our customers on Wall St. at this time. Again, I thought, "Did something happen?".

And on the other end of it, I was on a business trip a few years ago. When I got to my hotel, the first mail I read was from my wife, saying "Call you mother and tell her you are not in jail". The second was from my manager saying that if I had to send the team home he preapproved any expense. Again, I thought, "Did something happen?".

The two takeaways are obvious. 1. If "something happens" that makes the news, your family worries about you. 2. I have no idea what is going on in ultra-current events. For #1. Call home. For #2, that's OK. I am protected by the god that protects drunks and children.

Back story, while in the service Nat News my dads favorite reported about home town sailor getting killed in traffic. I called home to warn my parents that all was well with me. However they had missed the nightly news show.
