The Horse Feathers Inn, or, a Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Privy
From the introduction:
Thunder rolled around the deep grey sky leaving booming echoes to dance back and forth through the trees.

A seemingly oceans worth of rain had drenched the countryside, turning the road into a quagmire of mud.
