When we look at the home screen of our phones, we get a picture of current happenings like time, date, if it's raining or sunny and temperature. But if we look beyond our screens, we realize that nature has many ways to show us what's going on outside if we just pay attention.

One of those elements is figuring out the temperature without looking at a thermometer. Check out this knowledge from the Farmer's Almanac shared on Stories of Texas Facebook page.

Take the number of chirps in fourteen seconds, plus 40, to get the temperature in Fahrenheit or the number of chirps in twenty five seconds, divide by 3, add 4, to get the temperature in Celsius. I'll be 100 percent honest, I had no idea you could do this.

If you live in the city, this may be a little difficult. I see it as an excuse to head to the countryside and try it out. Do it and let us know your results.
