A rock flew out from under our lawnmower and busted a window in my house.
The windows are all double pane. What do you do? Do you have to replace the
entire window? I could have fixed this no problem if it were single pane but
I do not know what to do here as these two panes do not just have air in
between them do they?
If sash or casement or whatever is easily removable, just carry it in to
local glass company. (The one the builders use, not the glass aisle at the
borg.) If it isn't easily removable, you'll have to pay for the house call
for them to remove the old, measure it, and install the new glass in the
field. Expensive, but not near as much as it used to be. If local shop is
too small to fabricate their own double-pane panels, they have a jobber that
can do it in a few days.
If you can fix a single pane and this happens to be a stationary
glass, take it out and carry to a local glass/glazing shop. They can
fix you right up Then put it back in. Be careful, the glass can break
further and hurt you.
Or as mentioned take the removable sash to the shop.

Yeah, they're a sealed unit with inert gas in between, gotta replace
the whole thing. DAMHIKT.
Did the same thing with the mower 8 years ago, threw a rock, broke the
8ftx4ft slider on the patio. Pretty expensive - ended up costing just
a few dollars less than the $500 deductible on the homeowners
insurance. Since then, I have been real paranoid about rocks while
