(Time-Lapse Video) Hey, Who Wants To Watch Metrodome’s New Roof Get Inflated?

We all remember back in early December last year when an incredible amount of snow during a huge blizzard that rocked Minnesota caused the roof of the Huber H. Humphrey Metrodome to cave in and ultimately collapse. It was quite the spectacle, much like the Minnesota Vikings’ season last year. Well, after many months of hard work, the Dome’s roof was reinflated earlier this morning. The process began at approximately 7:13 a.m. local time and the entire process was completed by 8:30.

Time-lapse video of the inflation follows.

Wow. Pretty neat. With that done, Mall of America Field will soon be ready to hold monster truck rallies now! And maybe some NFL football at some point. We’ll see.
