Narrative:
THE PILOT WAS ADVISED BY THE FAA WEATHER BRIEFER, PRIOR TO FLIGHT, AGAINST MAKING THIS FLIGHT DUE TO PRESENT AND FORECAST WEATHER CONDITIONS. AFTER ARRIVING IN THE GENERAL AREA OF HIS DESTINATION THE PLT OBSERVED THE WEATHER CONDITIONS AND COMMENTED ON THIER SEVERITY TO THE FAA CONTROLLER. THE LOCAL CONTROLLER SUGGESTED THREE TIMES THAT THE FLIGHT DIVERT TO LOVE FIELD. THE MOST PROBABLE REASON FOR THE PLT NOT DIVERTING WAS THAT A FRIEND WAS AWAITING HIS ARRIVAL AT ADDISON AIRPORT. THE PLT WAS POSSIBLY INCAPACITATED BY HAIL IMPACT AFTER THE WINDSHIELD HAD SEPARATED. FURTHERMORE, CESSNA ENGINEERS STATED THE AIRCRAFT MOST PROBABLY WOULD BE UNCONTROLLABLE WITHOUT THE WINDSHIELD IN PLACE. CAUSE:
