A few years back there was a page in the Alamanc that outlined some things to be aware of that can help to estimate the ambient outdoor temperature. The sound of the snow or trees for an example. Does anyone know where I may be able to find this information. (My collection of Alamancs was destroyed from a flooded basement)
First, sorry to hear about your collection ... bummer about that and I'm sure other flood-ruined things.
This is a good question! No point in opening the door or window and losing heat if you don't have to.
The Almanac Admins should be able to dig into their records on this.
I finally got a digital thermometer with outside sensor while they were on sale at the local hardware store, and I am glad not to loose heat this morning, with a temp of -3.1 F.
