Im up here in Minnesota. I didn't realize the snow was that bad and heavy, it was
actually pretty light and fluffy. However, it was some of the worst road conditions
in my many years here in Minneapolis, now below zero wind chill.

What were the settlers thinking? Must've come here in July!

I think they might have the right guy in Frazier.

The talk flying at the gym this AM was that they made the roof fall to press the need for a new stadium

It is surprising that they weren't scraping the snow off last night, but the conditions were probably too harsh to have people on top risking their lives.

It's held up by air- you don't go climbing on it along with the snow

They shoveled the RCA Dome routinely during heavy snow storms to prevent the roof from collasping under the weight of the snow. It was very risky work, but had to be done.

They actually were but had to pull the workers off due to wind and other hazardous conditions (like the 20 friggin inches of snow bombarding them).
