How much rain fell over the past few days? Bottom line, this was the largest multi-day rainstorm in your lifetime.

First Alert Chief Meteorologist Chris Vickers ran some rough numbers and to put this week's historic rainfall into perspective, used two tried and true units of measurement: gallons and... bathtubs!

With an estimated average of 5" overall, almost 52 BILLION gallons of rain fell just in Lucas County alone!

In Wood County, just enough rain fell to fill 65,300 Olympic-sized swimming pools!

The bathtub scene was also set up on a street in Manhattan.
