• very OT broken glass

    We got to the cabin and the temperature indoors was erratic. The
    heater ran forever. Seems like a giant hunk of ice slid off the roof
    and took out a window on the way down.

    I had my data logger running,

    and the choppy part is where we arrived and someone opened the door to
    that room without noticing the temperature and all the glass on the
    floor.

    Here's the fix:

    We'll replace both sides, since the seals are shot.

    Seems like 3/4 of my problems lately are thermal.

    I always have some plexiglass on hand for such things. Temporary
    fix until you get real glass.

    Cheers

    Not worth it to replace deteriorating windows at end of life. Replace the whole assembly.

    Jeld-Wen is a possibility and lots of installers who can go right to it installing them

    You can't complain about the price with them.

    The Brat decided to clean up the garage and threw out my scrap
    wood+metal pile. I plan to disown her.

    I went to Mountain Hardware, the local everything store, and they cut
    me a custom piece of plywood for about $40. Yikes. But it fit the
    outside of the frame perfectly.

    A sheet of plastic sounds like a good idea.

    The window guy was chatty and told me about a woman who was sitting on
    her couch reading, when a giant icicle smashed through the window and
    missed spearing her by a couple of feet.
