So after getting my parents up, calling the cottage twice, and the cell phone twice, finally get an answer on the cell phone. Apparently, they're still quite a ways from getting there, and had stopped because William's tail-gate fell off (fell apart?) his S-10 and they had to fix it. Said that took them over an hour. Assuming they goofed off at Melissa's for over half an hour, that would mean they're still like 45 minutes behind somehow. So now I get to stay awake even longer until they get there. I suppose them not being dead is a bonus though.
