Your drainpipe is blocked.
The best way to fix it is to remove the wipers and the plates underneath them.
Then clean everything and unplug/flush the drainpipes.
IF the water rises to high it enters the car.

There are drains that empty into the engine compartment throught he firewall. THose I checked sometime ago. After posting my question I found a post or two reagrding rust at the hinge point for the hood. Any thoughts out there on how to check that and repair? It's a pretty tight area.
