Three fourths of an inch of rainfall breaks record, tree

The rain had tapered to showers by Wednesday afternoon, but not before it caused a big problem at a north Corvallis house: An oak tree at Kate Field’s house at 2777 N.W. Rolling Green Drive uprooted and fell across the attached garage. Field was at her job at Oregon State University when the tree fell a little after noon. Her son, Mick Giovannoni, 18, was home at the time and heard a “tremendously loud” noise and called her at work.

He said, ‘Mom, I think you better come home,’” she said.

Also: it’s not raining today! Huzzah! But it will tomorrow, I bet. Stupid tomorrow.
