It may well be the largest retail outlet in town in terms of size and I try to imagine how it could possibly withstand the kind of weather you can see there. I gather the entire roof would just peel open. It's got to be a couple hundred thousand sq ft and it's not standing up well to occasional light rain. I also have to wonder how it would stand up to really heavy snow - the kind we used to get here.

Southgate Centre in Edmonton has a partial design like that where a raised parking level is above a large portion of the mall below. If that baby gave way there would be hundreds dead. There has to be 500 cars parked in that one section.

This place was definitely in need of repairs. Any time it rained there were buckets all over the place.

GPS coordinate midnight message girl and I left together and yapped in the parking lot a bit but no emergency doctor call messages later.
When I was a young man courting the girls
I played me a waiting game
If a maid refused me with tossing curls
I'd let the old Earth make a couple of whirls
While I plied her with tears in lieu of pearls
And as time came around she came my way
As time came around, she came

He also made a couple double chairs with an attached table in between for a drink, a book, etc.To this day anywhere, I continue to be amazed how comfortable they are for wood. The basic design in the beginning has evidently nailed correctly.
