That's what I thought when I saw this post this morning. We had a storm come thru last night and I could have taken some pics.

I have plenty of rainy pics but most have been posted before and none from this month and hope I don't have the opportunity to get any.

I sure hope you aren't talking about an image from the toilet's point of view.......


But the 1st few seconds to 1minute of the following would be what I would call a nice view while using an outhouse..
