So, my soon to be brother-in-law comes home with a few "daytime" fireworks to light off for the kiddies. He had 3 parachuters that launch up really high, explode, & send a little paratrooper or alien slowly gliding to the ground. The 3rd & final one he set off aparently malfunctioned, & when it exploded sent a thick cardboard canister rocketing horizontally across the sky, & then descended with bullet speed onto my windshield. The force was great enough to not only destroy the windshield, but pop the lower plastic out of place. You can see the little red clip that's suposed to be under that black plastic part. I'm hoping I'll just be able to pop it back up into place once they take the windshield off. Here's the best part: the local Technaglass doesn't have any aftermarket windshields for our cars yet because they're too new, so they had to get a windshield directly from the dealer, but thankfully they had one at the local parts warehouse. The cost? $871.00. My comprehensive insurance deductible? $500. D'oh! Guess I won't be getting that CarID dash kit for a while. My brother-in-law was more shook up about it than I was, he knows my car is my 2nd baby. It was just a freak accident though, I can't really be mad at him. It could have been alot worse though, my 2 year old was outside with us watching the fireworks, what if it had hit him. It ricochet'd off the windshield & almost hit my wife, so it was pretty scary. I'm just glad no one was hurt, & a windshield is a fairly easy (albeit expensive) thing to replace. I have an appointment tomorrow to have it done, I'll keep you all posted on the progress. Let this be a warning about those fireworks though! Hope you all had a happy & safe 4th of July!
