Glass Parking Lot

My Lord Spaketh so:

Glass parking lot is a turn of phrase used to express the idea that an eventual nuclear war will essentially turn the world into a bed of glass. The term is also used to refer to an area of sand after a nuclear bomb is detonated over it. The expression rose out of nuclear tests in New Mexico during the Manhattan Project. The heat from the bombs turned the area into a plate of glass.
