The Sky is Falling in Maine

The Mahaney Dome, the air-supported indoor practice facility at the University of Maine, is temporarily out of commission and lying flat on the ground after a large hole developed in the fabric covering Saturday. Heavy rains and substantial snowfall from the weekend is being blamed for the tear in the double-layered covering that spans the 38,000-square-foot facility.
