Metrodome Collapse, (AP) – A storm that lasted eight States parties continued to dump snow in the Upper Midwest on Sunday, the collapse of Minneapolis and the Metrodome to force the closure of many roads.
The storm was moving east, a day after he dumped 20 inches of snow in some places. A match on Sunday between the NFL football New York Giants and the Minnesota Vikings had already been postponed to Monday because the Giants could not get to Minneapolis to play when the tire Metrodome collapsed Sunday. We do not know when this game will now be played.
A blizzard warning was in effect Sunday in Chicago and much of northern Illinois, all of Iowa, much of southern Minnesota and Wisconsin, and small areas in North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri and Michigan, according to the National Weather Service. Most of the rest of the region was under a winter storm warning or watch freeze.
Wisconsin officials issued a statewide non-travel advisory on Saturday, quoting blizzard and winter storm warnings in almost all counties.
The weather was an unexpected burden for a Minnesota man who had promised to go camping on the roof of a coffee to help her daughter’s school to raise funds.
General Hospital Robert Stevens donned four layers of long underwear, heavy boots and a down coat before embarking on his quest Friday night. He promised not to descend until it was raised to 100,000, but after reaching the halfway mark on Saturday morning, he said he hoped the rest of the money would come quickly. He did not wait to spend another night in the blizzard.
“I think I crossed the line into madness,” he said.
Stevens slept in a tent among the hay bales, wrapped in a sleeping bag with double insulation listening to the wind whipping off Lake Minnetonka one block.
There was lively lunch crowd Saturday in the Birchwood Cafe in Minneapolis. Dennis Collette, there is a baker, was back inside after she and her colleagues spent 20 minutes of futile attempt to free his car parked in a snowdrift. Dennis still hoped to find a way to return home in the suburb of Roseville, about 12 miles – but it was also prepared to stay put.
The coffee had no beds, Dennis said, “but we have several bags of flour I could not sleep. And I guess at least I will not starve.”
