Normally the rain goes around us, so now its Plentys turn. ;D Looks like Shep might get a little bit. I'm jumping in the pool for a bit. That was invigorating and warm. The lightning was a bit if a worry though.

According to our pool "gauge", we had about an inch last night (Bay side).
The roof area that drains into the pool is about the same as its surface area, so one tile = one inch ...
