So after a little investigation I figured out the problem.
I took off the A-pillar cover on the passenger side, then proceeded to take down the sun visor and the OH-SHIT handle, again on the passenger side. I figured the water had to be coming from the weather stripping on the side of the car or from the sun roof. I pulled back the headliner a little and started feeling around. Opened the roof all the way and at the front corner passenger side is a drainage hole for water to drain from the roof channel down through the car and onto the ground. The drainage hole is connected to the water exit channel by a rubber tube. The end connecting to the channel had come undone... don't know how. I plugged it back in and tie-wrapped it so it would not come apart again.
To test I poured a glass of water carefully into the sunroof channel and the water drained.... a couple of minutes later the water was dripping on my garage floor.
Now if you'll excuse me I have to put my car back together again and dry my carpet....
