Memories of Doomed Astrodome Flood Twitter
The plan to renovate the Astrodome didn't pass muster with the voters last night, but that hasn't stopped people from being heard in another way.
The rejection of the $217 million plan makes it more likely than ever that the Dome gets turned into a parking lot. And so Houstonians have taken to Twitter to mostly mourn and remember the Eighth Wonder, under the hashtag #astrodome memories.
