Some Evanstonians this morning may feel like they’re been standing inside the Centennial Fountain at the Merrick Rose Garden rather than looking at it, as in this picture taken Tuesday afternoon, after a wave of thunderstorms moved through the area last night.

Reports say Evanston got nearly two inches of rain overnight, less than some communities south of Chicago, but still enough to cause some scattered minor flooding.

Forecasts say we should get a break from the rain for at least the next 36 hours, but the wet June weather is expected to resume after that and continue for much of the rest of the month.

At least it keeps everything looking green!
