‘Sorting’ Out Your Day:

Today on the Etruscan Brontoscopic Calendar:

[Saturday] If it thunders today, it portends a powerful man in politics or a general is endangered and on his behalf battles will be waged and wild beasts will attack humans.

[Sunday] If it thunders today, it portends abundance, but wild beasts will perish, fish will increase, and reptiles will invade homes, but won’t be harmful.
