The rain just washed away into the bay.
 
The rain was absorbed by the Sedum Plants.

 
 
The Curtis Bay Elementary Students received first hands on experience of how Green Roofs worked.
Everyone enjoyed the rain stimulated by the thunder boomers pouring down on the imaginary roof
tops.  The Sedum are plants with water-storing leaves, which makes them the perfect candidate for green roofs.  Green roofs are living roofs that can cool a building, and clean the water and the air.  Sedum can store water from rainstorms in their leaves instead of letting it run off the roof and into the storm drains.
