Another way to tell the temperature
Tell the temperature by listening to crickets. The cold-blooded creatures perform their functions faster at higher temperatures, so the warmer it is, the faster they'll chirp. To find out the temperature in Fahrenheit, count the number of chirps within a 15-second period, then add 40.
