Well, a friend at one particular large internet exchange says he can
semi-accurately the ambient temperature/ weather in the local city
from the MRTG stats. :-)
The stats he showed me backed him up - or at least clearly showed

The formal proof is left as an exercise for the reader. ;-P

Cold weather leads to more people snuggling up with their laptops.
In sunny warm weather everyone gets away from the kb and goes outside
to have a real life.
