With over 16 inches of snow falling in less than 24 hours it seemed inevitable. Overnight the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis collapsed, tearing the teflon roof in three places. This resulted in the Minnesota Vikings game originally scheduled for Noon earlier today being postponed to 6:20 Monday and then being moved to Detroit's Ford Field. I believe this is only the second time which the Metrodome has collapsed -- both due to heavy snowfall.
