Telling time without a watch is just a few digits away.
You’re stranded in urban wilderness, concrete jungle that is LA and it’s getting late in the day. You got to get home to put those chickens up before the possums and coons come out but you aren’t sure how many daylight hours are left.
We learned this pretty nifty trick when we were teenagers (and since I don’t wear a watch this finger trick continue comes in handy!)
To estimate hours before sundown, the only equipment you need is your hands. Extend your arms before you and bend your wrists so your palms face you. Stack one hand on top of the other from the horizon to the sun. Each finger represents approximately 15 minutes. Each person’s finger size varies, so for accurate results every time, do this at home with a watch to see if you have 10-, 15-, or 20-minute fingers.
Another sign of the time! Don’t forget to enjoy the Super Harvest Moon: Autumn phenomenon is a rare treat
