Snowstorm brings down Metrodome roof. (Triggers New Englanders' memories of 1978.)

Snowstorm brings down Metrodome roof | Minnesota Public Radio News:

The roof collapsed under the weight of a snowstorm that dumped 17 inches of snow on the city Saturday. The executive director of the commission that runs the dome, Bill Lester, says a crew that had been clearing snow was pulled off Saturday night due to safety concerns. He says the crew stopped work well before the collapse.
Shades of 1978. Waking up to this news reminded me of the Hartford Civic Center roof collapse during the Blizzard of '78.
