"I Can See Clearly Now"
Here's the scoop on our windshield. I had previously written about my crack problem and some valiant attempts to extend the windshield's life after it finally succumbed to a fifth rock impact during it's short life. But all my efforts subsequently failed. It was over. Time to throw in the towel. So officially... for the books, our average windshield life is 37,000 miles and just shy of 5 years. We saw a lot of the country through that glass during its time.
But you know how averages can leave one with an altered understanding of reality. And as we once again head down the road, in just a few weeks, I'll be extra vigilant and not a little fearful lest a rock-spewing gravel truck merges ahead of us... dramatically and quickly lowering that average. Oh no... say it ain't so Joe!
|Out with the old...|
|...and in with the new.|
How much does this 5 foot tall by 8-1/2 foot wide curved sheet of glass weigh? No specific weight was listed, but two of us picked up and carried the old one back to the truck without too much effort -- so, I'd estimate it weights somewhere around 100 to 150 pounds... less than I thought it would.
