Default Oh Noes! the SKY is falling!

Thought some of you might find this interesting.

I work across from the Silverdome and when i arrived at 10am, i thought everything appeared normal over there, but by 10:30, i noticed something was "different" across the street. My office faces the East entrance of the Silverdome, where the indoor practice field resides. Sorry for the typical "crappy cellphone pic", but it is the best i have here. And looking at the pic, i guess you don't really know what you're seeing, unless you look at it everyday, but all the white behind the Red SUV is where the dome /should/ be...



It appears that there was some damage to the structural integrity of the dome and caused it to collapse. I know we have had larger snows in the area, so i cannot imagine it being just the snow, so i don't know what happened.
Up to 5PM, the maintenance crew has been shoveling snow off the deflated dome. I can only assume the weight of the snow won't allow them to re-inflate it, but haven't seen them try that yet either...

So just to put things in perspective, Pontiac has been maintaining the main Dome and the inflatable Practice Dome for how many years after the Lions left, and now are probably working overtime to get the Practice Dome back operational... $$ well spent? We'll see how it looks tomorrow...

...and before anyone asks, no, i do not know what they are going to do with the Dome or the property, lol.
