Didja' Know?

If you count the chirps a cricket makes in 14 seconds and add 40 you can effectively estimate the current temperature.

For example, if you count 45 chirps you can figure that it's darned close to 85° outside.

Now, try it the next time you're out and you hear a cricket.

Thanks for reading,
