WINDBREAK '06: The worry

The phone rang. It was my mom, calling from Bakersfield. I was busy, can't remember what I was doing, so my wife fielded the call. "I saw the wind storm on the news," my mom said. "Are you all right? Do you have power?"
We asssured her that we were all right, and that we had power. In fact, the storm merely grazed us, which was lucky.
The next day, I was talking with my barista about the storm, and she said her mom had called her and asked if she had power, as well.
Dear friends, did you get a worrying call from your parents?
