Broken window ? storm or vandalism ?

Broken window ? storm or vandalism ?
Hey guys/girls

Had another bad storm last night and now the rear window is broken.
I'm thinking its storm and not any kind of vandalism...

I have a long drive coming up this weekend, I'm not sure I'll be able to schedule and fix this by then.
You all think driving will be fine ? should I duct tape it on the inside and outside ?

thoughts ?

Thanks

you can probably get that replaced before the weekend, but you should call around asap

also if it was vandalism the glass would be inside the car not still in a perfect shape. My dad had that happen to a rear window on his car after a hot day (100*+) with the windows up.

front windows were down a bit. so I don't think that happened...
But, there's no indication on the glass of any impact at all...really weird...
anyways...out $160 just like that.

someone's coming to replace it tomorrow. not OEM glass though..
and I guess will be another $20 or so to get the rear tinted again :/

another benefit of tint. keeps the window from shattering into a billion pieces.

Re: Broken window ? storm or vandalism ?

call your insurance to see if they have a window breakage coverage. I have it on my comprehensive. for the extra $20/year its already paid for itself 10x over when my windshield cracked.
