The Dome’s Down!

This video of the collapse of the Metrodome roof leads to some questions: The stadium was built in 1982. There have been plenty of nasty snowstorms in the past three decades. Nobody saw this coming? Who thought it would be a good idea to build a fabric roof in the Minnesota climate? During the year, every year, we spend a minimum of four months under an increasing carpet of snow.

Of course, there’s also the factor that it takes a major storm to do any harm to a 30 year old fabric roof? Humans are great at making stuff.
