This piece of oracle bone records a pair of divinations, one positive and one negative, regarding rain. Particularly interesting is that an inquiry was made on the day of Jiachen (the 41st day of the 60-day calendar cycle) as to whether it would rain on that day, on the day of Yisi (the following day), and on the day of Dingwei (four days hence).
