So this might be a stupid question but here it goes. So I mashed all my grains, then I strained them. Just getting ready to boil but I had to leave (very unfortunately). So my question is can I just come back start my boil and everything will be fine? Or should I just throw away all the wort?

You'll be fine. I've left wort sit for awhile before getting back to boiling it (6-8hrs) with no ill effects before. As long as you good with sanitation you should be fine.

Can't see a problem. You are off the grain, it's covered and you're gonna BOIL if for an hour. Seems it should be ok.

If you did a mash out then the sugars were set and you should get your desired attenuation. If you did not bring the temp up to 170 then it will attenuate a little more as the beta enzymes continue to work. The boil will kill anything that may have started to grow.

On January 5th I'll have a post on my blog detailing the mash and the effects of mash time.

So like the others said: Keep calm, and brew on.
