    Add me to the list...

    of those who are glad you reacted well and survived.

    I spent 4 years in So. FL (Little Haiti/Liberty City area).
    I can't say I miss it. Shootings all the time. Crime everywhere.
    And then there were the Marielitos.

    The good ol' days.

    Again, glad you're okay.

    Holy cow!

    At least it was just the glass. It didn't get into the body or paint.

    I would make sure the insurance company pays for cleaning your seat too.

    Glad that everything turned out ok for you Miggy!!!

    I bet that was pretty scarry just watching that piece of metal coming your way.

    I had something like that when I lived in Colorado with a rock about the size of a softball being hit by oncoming traffic. It bounced off the windshield (sounded like a bomb) and went straight up and hit the car behind me and it of course was a state patrol. He wasn't happy at all.

    Holy Cra% Batman... Just a crazy day in FL, eh? Well, I am certainly happy you survived unscathed... I shudder to think what could have happened.

    There is nothing more frightening than seeing something coming at you like that on the highway.

    Years back I was tooling along the expressway in Chicago and see a spare tire coming across the divider from oncoming traffic...I tried to adjust speed/lane to no avail and the thing hit right at my drivers side rear-view mirror.....shattered two windows (windshield/drivers door) and smashed the bejesus out of my door....not a fun experiance - all while I was doing 80 MPH......

    Yours looks even scarier.....very glad you are ok!!!!!!

    I think I lost my chain saw bar somewhere in South Floridia.

    I would keep the bar, hang on the wall or something.

    I got it right here..... I might hang it or just place it somewhere as a reminder that I was either lucky or I owe overtime to my guardian angel.

    Yeah, I would have to hang on to it, as a reminder that life is precious and can be taken at anytime.

    Snot! I'm glad you guys came out of that OK.

    The weirdest one I had was a wrench flying out the back of a dump truck and glancing off my windshield. The noise alone scared the snot out of me.

    I've had to dodge weird obstacles before, like an incident on the interstate when everybody made it around a curve and discovered some guy ahead of us lost his trailer, which parked itself in the lefthand lane. That got hairy.
