After the Metrodome's roof was successfully deflated Saturday, workers began demolishing parts of the lower part of the Dome this week, including a loading dock, the Vikings Lounge and the area near Gate B.

Yesterday, we spotted a few brave souls on the rim of the roof. But today, officials from the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority said work is continuing in frigid weather, but has slowed a bit.

If machine operators can work, they will be working from the safety of their heated rigs, the Authority said, noting some interior work is being done, weather permitting.
