My mum is always going on about risk (I won't say my age lol) but I'm female. I go running and if it's raining she will say something like it's far too wet/cold and that I'm insane (runners run in lots of weather conditions). I'm joining the navy reserves and I am supposed to attend on Wednesdays from half 6 to half 9. I can drive but weeks ago she was saying it's unsafe to stand at the deserted train station at night plus it takes 2 hours to get home. It annoys me as I'm already quite anxious and do t ah e friends I don't need someone going on about risks and danger all the time. So I drive but she has been comming with me in the car and waiting on the car park, she drives back and to be fair it does give me a rest from driving as I work full time and am driving for work 3 and half hours per day.
Today I thought she was comming with me (to the navy centre) but shes been out of the house all day so I rang her a short while ago to ask if she was comming as it was getting close to the time we leave. She was at my aunts house and said that it was unsafe to go (I thought here we go again lol) as there's been a weather warning issued due to wind that has advised people not to travel unless absolute neccasary. I said 'I wished you'd have rang me earlier to say you didn't want to go as I could have arranged to get the train'. She said 'well I thought it was common sense, I bet public transport will be affected, there will be no one else going'. I heard my aunts voice in the background also saying it's too windy. She then rang me 5 minutes later telling me not to go on my own.
I've looked up the weather for my area (north west) and there's a yellow warning for tomorrow 'snow' but there's no warning in my area for this evening and I can't find anywhere where it says avoid travel unless neccasary. I'm going to have to travel an hour and half away for work tomorrow anyway. I'm just wary of missing a lot of navy training as I've already missed 3 weeks and already have to catch up on things. What I wanted to ask though is am I right to feel annoyed/is she being way too over cautious on life, or is it me that is unappreciative and unsensible? There is a little wind outside but I'm just a bit embarrassed to ring up the navy and tell them it's too windy to get there :/ I'm sure I'd have to drive in much heavier winds when I get mobilised. I'm annoyed as I think she should have rang me to say she didn't want to go then I'd have had time to get the train, as its my decision whether to 'risk' it or not. I said this to her but she got annoyed, told me not to wind her up and said 'why should I ring you you should ring me as its you who wants to go'. I thought that since it's an assumed thing that we go every week that she was going to go. Plus there's no weather warning for today online. Correct me if if I'm wrong in my thinking though and I will try to change my perception. Just wanted opinions/advice.

Sorry about the 2 threads I tried to post again the right subforum but both threads are in the same forum anyway.
