The front wall of the Sears store in Jackson tilts inward after the roof of the building collapsed Monday in what is becoming an epic winter for the Jackson Hole valley. Among other things, a storm collapsed towering power poles to Teton Village, closing the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for what may be several days, if not a week. (Angus M. Thuermer Jr/WyoFile)
