Weather forecasters are saying that the northeast quadrant of Tropical Storm BILL is where most tornadoes are likely to spring up. That includes my house, but I am not worried.   Unlike most people i have Armor Glass security film on my windows — designed to take up to a 4.5 lb. Large Missile impact (like…

Yesterday, while Armor Glass was exhibiting at a conference on hurricanes in Galveston, I was fortunate to meet Bill Read (the hurricane guy, now retired from NOAA and working for KPRC in Houston as their hurricane expert) and Frank Billingsley, the chief KPRC Weather guy. Both gave excellent presentations.   The key thing I learned…

This article describes a gang of robbers known for violent entries of businesses wearing masks and waving handguns. They put cocked guns to people’s heads in brute force to accomplish their mission. The Smoke Shop owner was lucky but let’s face it — not too many people would be able to do what he did….

Who Needs Armor Glass? Anyone whose property is on this long list that says “burglary of a habitation” – this is a link to an actual crime list in Ft Bend County, part of the Houston metroplex. You will find most of them entered after breaking the GLASS – easily done with a brick in…

This is an excellent VIDEO showing HAIL reported to be “soft ball size” hitting a car near Stephenville Tx and BREAKING the windshield. While Armor Glass is designed more for buildings, the impact is the same – hail breaks out windows, allowing damaging glass, wind and rain inside a building. Houston is under a tornado…

I just sent this letter to our Texas Senators and Representatives, trying to get them to upgrade our building codes to protect Texan lives and property.   I invited them –and invite you– to join us any time the next 3 days at the Texas Home Show at the George Brown Convention center in Houston March…

Our winter in the northern hemisphere is summer south of the equator.  And this year they are getting huge cyclones (we call them hurricanes) with winds exceeding 160 miles per hour!  Some of the gusts exceeded 200 miles per hour! When “Pam” hit Australia it was classified a CAT “6” at one point! Up until…

The L.A. Times just ran a story about a singer “Maxee” Maxwell who fell on a glass, which cut her throat an killed her. Although this is obviously a freak accident, it does show how deadly broken glass can be. In “Houses of Straw” I wrote about a documented death in a hurricane from broken…
