    This reminds me of a Saturday morning cartoon. There are people who change our weather.

    An air-supported roof over the Dallas Cowboys' practice field collapsed during a heavy thunderstorm Saturday afternoon, leaving 12 people injured, authorities said.

    About 70 people, including more than two dozen of the team's rookies, were in the facility when it was blown down shortly before 3:30 p.m. (4:30 p.m. ET), team officials said.

    Two or three suffered serious injuries, but none were believed to be in life-threatening condition Saturday night, said Dr. Paul Pepe, Dallas County's emergency medical services chief.

    Smoke rises from the collapsed barn at Lebanon Raceway, where two people and 65 horses died.
    A barn fire that killed two men and dozens of horses in Ohio on Saturday shows no sign of criminal intent, authorities said.

    The Ohio State Fire Marshal said the cause of the fire, at the Lebanon Raceway near Cincinnati in southwestern Ohio, is undetermined.

    "However, investigators have ruled out criminal intent," it said in a written statement.

    The ages and identities of the men are not yet known. Initially, officials reported that 65 horses perished, but later put the number at 43.

    Paul, Minn. — The snowstorm that dumped more than 20 inches of snow on parts of Minnesota brought down the roof of the Metrodome on Sunday morning.

    Witnesses, including the security director at the nearby Holiday Inn Metrodome, said the roof is no longer visible above the dome's concrete bowl.

    "We went up to the 14th floor to look at it. It looks kind of like a big dish of sugar," the director, Chris Cowles, said.

    Sunday's Vikings game against the New York Giants had already been rescheduled for Monday night.

    Officials from the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission could not immediately be reached for comment. On Saturday, facilities and engineering director Steve Maki told the Star Tribune there was no structural issue occurring at the dome from the snow.

    I look at these three, and I think of my children and others watching TV on Saturday morning.. Of course the theme has been around awhile umm, where weather is used to harm others. I was thinking that perhaps someone put a small amount of explosive on the domes and "helped" along the wind and snow. And horses don't set fires.
