The MetroDome's roof was re-inflated yesterday. The approximately four month long project was completed ahead of schedule. In case you forgot, the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome's roof collapsed in December under the weight of heavy snow in the wake of a blizzard. The roof's collapse forced the Minnesota Vikings to play a "home" game in Detroit and another home game outdoors at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium making it the Viking's first outdoor home game in nearly 30 years.
