Better Lucky.......

ID:	172432[/ATTACH]It is a windy day in Helotes, Texas, came home today from Home Depot picking up some thin 4x8 to create a template for my floor before taking existing plywood off of frame.

Went over to check tie downs on shell, making sure all is secure when I see a 30" wide curved glass window laying on the ground.......where did it come from????

Looking up at shell.....mind you it is 7'-4" to the bottom of where my window is supposed to be, I see that my 30" curved glass is missing.

Holy S**88heeets !!!!!!!!!! the thing fell out and hit the ground, OK so I had released the tension on the windows, cranking them loose (not open) so that any stress during the lift would not crack this expensive curved glass.

I still can't believe that the thing is in one piece..........Better Lucky than Good.

That should be a good sign that the rest of your project will go ahead without any hitches.
If that happened up here today in Manitoba, Canada - you wouldn't have been able to find your glass. Had a foot of snow overnight and to continue on tonite and Sunday. Weatherman is calling it a Colorado low that has come along? Not complaining considering what happened with Sandy hitting the east coast.
Have fun with your floor and we'll shovel our snow..
Bob

Bob,
I hate to tell you this, but we have 77 degrees with a slight breeze, perfect for working on the trailer. I have about half my template laid out. Just came in to get some water.

Sorry about the snow.
