(Newser) – Try explaining this one to the boss: A snowblower banged into and shattered one of the 32-foot glass panels that form a cube outside the Apple Store in Manhattan, and 9to5Mac estimates the cost of replacement at $450,000. (That's based on the $6.7 million cost to install 15 of the panels a few years back.) The accident occurred Tuesday, though Apple isn't offering more details about what happened. In the meantime, the store remains open. BuzzFeed rounds up some images.

Once again, blame the government for this one. Cities have those laws forcing the property owners to clear sidewalks in front of their property although the sidewalks are easements owned by the city. You don't clear it and someone falls, they can sue you.
