Hope that hot element didn't land on the roof of your ride!
We had a Metal Halide lamp blow out in one of our warehouses a while back. The hot element landed on some paper products and if it hadn't have been for the sprinkler system and some quick work by the fire department, it would have burnt half the warehouse down.

Rough Service bulbs are a good precaution in garage door openers. They handle the vibration much better and usually survive the occasional water drops.
