About ten minutes into my trip towards Chicago yesterday, I was on the phone with CaliValleyGirl and winced as a rock hit my windshield. Thirty seconds later, a 10-inch crack made its way across the glass. Son of a. The last time we drove home, we hit a crow. This time I will need a new windshield when I get back. It's too expensive to travel.

Sometimes you're insurance will cover stuff like that. But then sometimes they will raise your rates afterward.

Hope you're having fun.

Honey - hang up and drive. Mkay? and yeah, your insurance (if it's USAA) will cover it. no deductible, no increase in premiums.

hang up.

A crow?! Usually birds are so good about (narrowly) avoiding cars. Though I guess the crows here are cocky about it, they'll hop out of the way just in time to miss tires, etc. I hope you don't have any more car problems.

Ooooh...I read "cow"...I couldn't remember you guys hitting a cow...

Yikes! Well, even if you didn't have the phone in your ear, I don't see how you could've avoided a rock!

I hate when rocks hit my windshield. Scares the crap outta me...

Be careful out there!

Drive safely! Maybe consider a hands-free model phone next time?

Can't wait to hear more wedding stories!

I'm thinking the phone has nothing to do with being hit by a rock.
