How can you create a schedule with a specific time and date

The schedule metaparameter seems to have a limitation in that you can only specify a daily OR hourly. For instance, you can say schedule this to run on Monday, and your puppet agent will apply that configuration item on a Monday. You can also say apply this configuration item between 2am and 4am, but you cannot seem to specify BOTH Monday AND 2am-4am.

Is there a way to do this?

I haven't tested this yet, but have you tried defining 2 different schedules and then making your resource use both?

Something like

thing { "name":
  schedule => ['monday', 'between2and4am']
