Interesting Weather Trivia

The Tree Cricket is sometimes referred to as the poor man's weather
thermometer.

That's because temperature directly affects their rate of activity.
Count the number of chirps in 15 seconds and add 40 and the sum will be
almost exactly the Fahrenheit temperature.

Too cool.. no pun intended.
(Thanks to weather.com for that tidbit!)
