The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

I hate the sound of breaking glass

Which puts me at odds with Nick Lowe, but so it goes.

Anyway, it appears that I'm going to be needing to replace the windshield on my car; there's a new crack at a right angle to the old crack, and I expect all manner of vectors to develop in the next few days. If you have any reason to recommend (or to castigate) any glass vendors, local or national, I'd be interested in hearing about it.

Speaking of things broken, water pressure was way low when I got home yesterday, though it was back to normal about an hour later. This morning's commute provided a hint: there had apparently been some water-main work in the 2600 block of NW 50th. And, well, summers being dry around these parts, mud represents a change of pace, if not exactly a welcome one.

I don't know any vendors to replace a windshield, but if you ever get a chip in your new windshield, I know someone who can fix that and keep it from breaking on out.

I'm hard on glass, or at least this glass, evidently; after two chip/crack repairs and now a third fissure opening up, I suspect I'll be doing this on a regular basis on this car. (Something about the airflow, I guess.)

And heck, it's cheaper than a couple of transmission flushes.

Check your car insurance policy, most likely there is a provision for windshield replacement. Depending on the deductible, that glass place (can't remember the name) right before Classen on NW Exp. will replace your glass, and it might not cost you anything.

That would be, um, Glass Masters.
