I just recently got back home from hanging out with a friend of mine. The car had been sitting outside for 6 or 7 hours, and it looked similar to that. I just let it run a bit with the defroster and heating on, and it was just fine. Please stay out of the habit of pouring hot water on the windows, though. Even ice-cold windshield washer fluid helps.

You got SUPER lucky with dumping hot water on the windows. I personally know 2 people that did it, and shattered their windshields. Me and my friend did it as a joke on a old junk car in his yard, and it busted the window as soon as we dumped it on there.

Oh, thanks for the tip. I knew that exposing glass to extreme temperature changes could cause it to shatter, but I didnt think what I was doig would make enough of a difference to hurt anything, I'll try to stay away from that from now on.
