Leak fixed

I applied some Capt Tooley's ($11) to the leaking area and it no longer leaks! I also cleaned all my drains and checked behind the battery (in very good condition). This website alone is justification for the world wide web. Thanks for the advice.

For others with the same problem: The gasket on my car is pulled away from the windshield slightly along its lower edge. I'm filling in this volume with Capt Tooleys so that in winter freezing water won't open up a new leak path. It will take a while though because Tooleys is extremely thin and can flow downhill into the corner of the windshield and further if applied in quantity. So I'm filling the crack slowly. The first application did cure the leak.
