Doesn't seem like modern architecture engineering can stand up to Winter's harshness requirements these days! 20 inches of snow ('wet' or fluffy) over a large area, is a helluva lot of weight!

It looks like that was an inflatable dome. I think those inflatable domes just can;t handle snow. They might be good in fair weather climates, but not where it snows.

There was a daycare center here that had an inflatable dome that collapsed 10 years ago. Fortunately the snow and the collapse came on a Saturday so no one was hurt. They rebuilt it with a solid structure dome. That could have been a major tragedy with a 50-100 toddlers and infants there if it happened on a weekday.

Inflatables are best left to recreational toys..blowup dolls and the like.

It happened at 5:30 AM, so I don't think anyone was there. Could be wrong, but don't think so. Very lucky timing, that's for sure.

I feel sorry for the Vikings fans that have tickets...if you can't get out of your driveway, how the hell do you get to Detroit!?!? How the hell do they sell their tickets? I smell law suits from some very unhappy campers!
