Summer Savings on Hinkley Lighting

A Summer Serenade with Hinkley Lighting.

Fun Fact: August is the loudest month with temperatures rising and crickets chirping—it is hot out there!  We can estimate just how hot it is outside by listening to the crickets serenading.  “Dolbear’s Law” defines the unique relationship between the rate of chirping and the temperature:  Count the number of chirps in 14 seconds by the common snowy tree cricket and add 40 to approximate the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.” –
