Bubble Down

The big news in these parts today is the collapse of the dome.

We spent a good deal of time this morning tracking down news and trying to figure out what was going to happen next. I've heard some wags say that it wasn't smart to have a snow vulnerable stadium in Minnesota but what they don't understand is that this was a very bad storm. A guy from MPR mentioned that this was in the top ten worst blizzards in Minnesota history. Not only was the snow amount very high but high winds also kept workers from clearing the top of the dome.
It is striking to have something this high profile happen mere blocks away from where the 35W bridge fell down. Not that one has anything to do with the other but at this rate downtown Minneapolis is going to develop a worldwide reputation.

Yeah. Both events happened just blocks from where I live. And I'm expected to make a 7a.m. flight tomorrow.

People should get extra credit for living in MN.
