In my house, the GFCI for the patio outlet is the GFCI in the 
upstairs bathroom.  Until I figured that out, it had me scratching my 
head for years wondering why the bathroom GFCI would occasionally 
trip in a heavy downpour ;)  Apparently, the outdoor outlet could get 
wet enough to trip the GFCI even though it is an outdoor outlet with covers.
