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.
