Ok, you've intrigued me.  1 inch of rain = 17.37 million gallons of H2O
per square mile.  So... if I've done my math correctly, 574 million
gallons of water is equivalent to 33 inches of rain per square mile.

Here's one. How much is 574 million gallons of water? Anyone have any 
ideas on how to relate that number to readers. Just for fun, I thought

I'd ask. Maybe someone could fill up a football stadium and get back to
me.

Jeff.
