Halakhic Midrash on Exodus.
And how am I to maintain the expression: "Upon the houses wherein ye shall eat it?" They said on the basis of this expression, that the paschal lamb may be eaten in two places, but may not be eaten in two companies--these are the words of R. Simon the son of Yohai. In two places! How? If they are inside the house and a beam over their heads breaks, they go out to the yard. If they are in the yard and rain comes down upon them, they go inside. Thus they may eat it in two places.
