bringin down the roof

The Egyptian Plaza in downtown KF had its roof fall in from the snow on it.

It used to be a Ford dealership, and was decorated with bas relief (i think that's the word) Egyptian art on the face and on the column fittings inside. I had not had an opportunity to see the inside except from the outside. Not sure, but I think it was built in the '20s, when Egyptian derived art and architecture was popular. Last year someone had the exterior restored and they opened it up as a banquet hall/event center thing. I understand it had horrible acoustics.

There have been a couple of roof collapses in town the last two days.
