Wow That Got My Attention!

They've been working on the road that I take to and from work for a bit now. They started by tearing it up, then slightly patching it, and finished by putting a layer of tar and gravel down. This isn't just a little side road but almost like a small highway. LOTS of traffic and trucks with not too many stops. I've been picking up rock chips every since they put the gravel down. Last week I got 2 lines travelling across the windshield from the top down.


OMFG!! Just driving a long with a truck in front of me so I slow down a bit since it's kicking up a few little rocks when


A rock hits my windshield like a freaking baseball and little tiny pieces of glass fly all over me. After I got over the initial shock I pulled over and took a picture to show Scott.

Notice the little glass shards all over? I had to get out and shake my shirt out a bit and brush my pants off. I took the tape roller I had in the car to pick up some of the bigger pieces. I still need to go out and clean the rest off.

Guess it's time to start taking the longer route to work :( And get a new windshield.. TG I have full coverage!Pin It

WOW, Here in Texas, cracked or chipped windshields are all a part of life. I remember when I got my FIRST chip/crack on my brand new 4Runner. I was like, NOOOOOOOOOOO....
Then I got another one on the same windshield so I figure I will just collect a few more before I get a new one.
That's crazy that the glass is all over the place.
