Had this happen to the rear window of my '72 Opel Manta about 1978. I had parked on a side street in the morning. A cold front moved in and the temperature dropped about 30 degrees over the space of the morning. When I came back, the rear window was shattered. Fortunately, it stayed in one piece, so I didn't have any opening into the car and no glass all over. It stayed together until I got it to the auto glass place.

Funny thing was that I owned that range for maybe 10 years and I never realized that the front was glass. I thought it was painted aluminum or something. You can imagine the surprise.

I guess some times tempered glass just lets go...?

Totally off subject... when I was a kid we had a POC oven that would not stay lit/light up sometimes. Lit with a match(we was po). One evening we were preparing to eat and my sister had "lit" the oven and it didn't light. Few minutes later the oven blew and when it did the door flew off and hit the back of the chair I was sitting in. MMMM prolly needed a change after that. Sorry.

There are several threads of this happening in the Georgetown section of the forum where the vessel sinks explode in just that same manner.

Guess the glass in your fireplace just lost its temper.

Without a doubt, it's caused by the wind baffling down the chimney...

Thanks Flybob... I laughed out loud at that one.
Glad I was the only one in my office.

Tempered glass has one positive in its favor - it breaks (shatters) in chunks and not shards and slivers like normal glass. I used to crush cars for scrap iron and you could never predict how tempered glass would react - you could slam a hammer against one window and the hammer would just bounce off, on another car you would just bump the body and the windows would explode - unpredictable.
