Besides location, a major difference between the front windshield and the back glass of a vehicle is that front glass is made from laminated safety glass and back glass is often made from tempered glass, which weighs and costs less.
Tempered glass shatters more easily than laminated glass because it lacks an internal layer of film used in laminated glass. This film makes it more likely laminated glass will stay in one piece during impact.
The North Merrick Fire Department escorted Santa in his sleigh throughout our community the night of December 19. It’s a tradition our family looks forward to each year, and the snow lined streets made it particularly festive.
After Santa and his firefighter helpers visited our street, I drove across town to the Community Holiday Tree and Lumiere Walk.
