A little delay



We started out on our road trip this morning, but didn't make it more than about 50 miles, when I heard a loud "crack!"  At first I couldn't figure out what had happened.  It sounded like a rock hitting the car, but my windshield was intact.  Then I looked in the rear view mirror, and realized that the rear window was shattered, and half of it was missing!

We're still not sure exactly what happened.   We know it wasn't anything inside the van that caused it, because the load hadn't shifted at all and nothing was touching the back window.  Maybe something somehow hit the rear window, or perhaps it was caused by the cold?  In any case, we headed back to Brian's parents' house after we learned it would take a few days to get it replaced.  Hopefully we can try again on Wednesday!
