Ok, when it rains I now get this code. 0081
"Intake valve Control Solenoid Circuit Bank 2."

I have no idea what that is, where it is, or how to fix it.

Can somebody please enlighten me?

That is a new one. I don't think I have seen anyone on this site with that issue before. Some info I found on the nets:

---------
- Faulty Intake Valve Control Solenoid Valve
- Intake Valve Control Solenoid Circuit harness is open or shorted
- Intake Valve Control Solenoid Circuit circuit poor electrical connection

An improper voltage is sent to the Engine Control Module (ECM) through intake valve timing control solenoid valve

Intake valve timing control solenoid valve is activated by ON/OFF pulse duty (ratio) signals from the Engine Control Module (ECM).
The intake valve timing control solenoid valve changes the oil amount and direction of flow through intake valve timing control unit or stops oil flow.
The longer pulse width advances valve angle. The shorter pulse width retards valve angle. When ON and OFF pulse widths become equal, the solenoid valve stops oil pressure flow to fix the intake valve angle at the control position.
---------

I would try to get in there and check for loose connections, frayed wires, etc. Take a glance and see if there are any noticeable issues with the wires/connections.
