[Saturday] If it thunders today, it portends a hot summer  and plenty of imports from foreign countries

[Sunday] If it thunders today, it portends dysentery.

Jean MacIntosh Turfa, The Etruscan Brontoscopic Calendar, in Nancy Thomson de Grummond and Erika Simon (eds.), The Religion of the Etruscans. University of Texas Press, 2006. (Kindle edition)
