More Evidence of Global Warming: Roof of Metrodome Collapses

From the AP:

An intense storm that spanned parts of eight states continued to dump heavy snow in the upper Midwest on Sunday, collapsing the Metrodome in Minneapolis and forcing numerous road closures.
The storm was moving eastward a day after it dumped 20 inches of snow in some places. A Sunday NFL football game between the New York Giants and the Minnesota Vikings had already been pushed to Monday because the Giants couldn’t get to Minneapolis to play when the inflatable Metrodome collapsed Sunday. It’s uncertain when that game will now be played.

Update: Detroit's Ford Field will host the game between the New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings moved from Minneapolis after the Metrodome's inflatable Teflon roof collapsed under the weight of snow from a heavy storm that passed through on Saturday.

The game, with a 7:20 p.m. ET kickoff, had already been postponed from Sunday after the Giants' flight was diverted Saturday to Kansas City as Minnesota air travel was shut down.
