Is your window a double hung with weights.  If so why not just drop the top 
one a little?

Someone suggested to one person to replace the window with Lexan or similar.

I drilled a hole in the wall, large enough for a black 2" sewer pipe.  Put 
in a piece of pipe and a cap on for now.  Plan on putting coax through 
it.  Some one suggested putting a box outside for all things window line etc.
