I'd carry on like normal. What's the worse that will happen?

My thoughts are go with your normal plan. Thats really all you can do. Unless you have a time machine. That would be awesome.

There should be no ill effects for mashing for 2 hours. At the VERY most you may change the fermentability of the wort, but honestly I don't think it is enough to even be concerned with.

I know the feeling brother.

After 16 years of being on call, I was supposed to be done having to take it starting a couple months back. We hired a couple new guys, but ended up letting one go and hiring another. I now get to take it this weekend (Memorial Day ) until the new guy is ready. I don't even bother trying to brew while on call.

In the end, you'll still make beer. Just take notes of what it started/ended at temperature wise. It never fails that these are the kind of brews that end up great, and you're kicking yourself later for not writing down what you did because you were in a panic over something going wrong.

Right on. Make it fun regardless of what happens. Take notes, review em while the wife is watching annoying reality tv, and plan whatcha wanna do next.

God, I don't miss being on-call.

Anyways, I mash overnight (~12 hours) with the grain sitting. You'll be fine.

That's interesting. Any reason you do that? Is it something that you've found beneficial to the brew or just to split up the process so it doesn't take up a half a day?

I Hate being on call. Every other weekend for me, and i've only brewed once when I was on call and that was an extract. I won't even bother doing an all grain batch when i'm on call.
