Total roof collapse at the only store in town!

Sorry to hear that Chris. Anytime a small town grocery store is closed, sure puts a burden on the locals. Especially the elderly residents.

We had two small town stores close in the last five years. One burned down and the other just went under in a town of about 1000 people. Now they get to drive 20 miles one way for a decent sized store.
My guess, they used Chinese steel beams.

Here is what happened with Chinese steel at IAD airport:

How'come Southern California gets all the snow while we here in Central California get nothing but ice cold rain? :(
When I was a kid we got a whole bunch of wet heavy snow and everyone was out shoveling off their rooves. I remember a couple people falling - which was quite bad. Does anyone shovel their roof anymore?
