Imperial ( in ) Rainfall Amounts in Realtime.txt File

The plugin has been running wonderfully for me.  Thank you again.   I debated whether to notify about this issue, but I believe you would want to know the following.  Unless the attached copy of my realtime.txt file's field for the unit of measure is somehow incorrect, the Weather Station plugin is not converting rainfall amounts specified as inches correctly into the database.  

In order to make the system work correctly I must multiply the inch value by 25.4 so that the plugin evaluates it correctly.  This is certainly not a problem for me as I am building the realtime.txt file in Python, but someone else without that capability would need to just send up a millimeter value even if their realtime.txt file has the "in" specifier as it appears to me.   Please correct me if I am wrong about this.

Thank you so much Pierre !   I am sure many people using the old, imperial measure system will benefit from this in the new release.  

Your Weather Station plugin has so many beautiful visualizations.  I really like that your visualizations are responsive to the bootstrap.css, that enables the site to work great on tiny screens too 🙂!  My weather page gets complements from your work all the time -- I am very grateful for your efforts.
