Snowbirds -- the nickname given to retirees who travel south for the winter -- know a lot about blizzards, black ice, and shoveling snow. From shoveling snow to maneuvering their car on icy roads, snowbirds have winter down pat. What they don't have first-hand knowledge of, however, is hurricanes. What are hurricane windows? Hurricane, or impact, windows are windows that are designed to withstand both the force of hurricane winds as well as anything thrown against them during a storm.
