Rain can be destructive. Late Wednesday evening, a pine tree fell across Chapel Drive, blocking traffic and effectively turning the main Duke traffic circle into a bus stop. Many cars opted to jump the curb to avoid the felled pine, but the Duke buses were not so fortunate. Students stopped to examine and even take photos of the barricade. Grounds keeping crews anticipate that they will be able to remove the blockage by Thursday morning. It's still raining in Durham.
