Metrodome officials are making sure the heavy snow in downtown Minneapolis doesn't bring the roof down.

It's been almost two years to the day since 17 inches of snow in 24 hours tore holes in the inflatable dome, forcing the Vikings to play the final two games of the season elsewhere. The repair project cost $22.7 million.

Steve Maki, director of facilities for the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Authority, confirms they cranked up the heat after Sunday's Vikings-Bears game. And he says they'll keep it that way until the storm passes. He says everything is going well so far.
