Using the nylon sounds like a really good idea. It should work like a screen, shouldn't it? Pioneers here used oiled paper before they had glass out here in the wild wild west. Something like that might work for winter if you can't get plastic to put up on the windows to keep out the cold. Stretched plastic works pretty well taped around the window.
I'm glad you and your family are ok. I remember when you couldn't find a glassman the last time this happened.


You have the ability to cut through to essential truth. We can live in the hell of knowing that the face of any child is the face of our own. Of any father, our father, of anyone, someone very dear to us. Or we can live unaware of our hell, in the realm of indifference, a hell that causes suffering to others.

Tears help, but are not enough. Having others beside you, perhaps, helps? How I wish I could give you my hand.
