My drive to work on Tuesday after a night of snow and sleet was a little scary. The roads were very icy, so I was going much slower than normal. I moved over when I saw a van was coming down the on ramp to I-40. As they accelerated, big chunks of ice started flying off the top of the van. Even though I was at least 30 yards back, a very large piece hit my windshield hard enough to cause it to crack from end to end like a big spiderweb. It was pretty scary, but mostly it just made me angry. So next time I am tempted to drive without clearing off my car completely, I will remember this incident. I am so thankful that the ice did not pierce through the windshield because the point of impact was right above my head.
