We had a max gust of 32 mph. And this was measured from a point surrounded by hills & trees. :shock: Could say we had a "little" wind today ... :lol:

Only thing I know about Brass Monkey is that rappers enjoy drinking it ... :| :lol:

Another sorta windy day today, we got a max cont of 22.5 and a 30.8 gust .

More than welcome to post speeds from anywhere, not only Connecticut. I've seen weather stations that can record speeds for something like $49 bucks at Wal-Mark though a bud of mine at work has one from Costco's that is a lot better than mine (& wally's models) with computer data download, etc if you want to hook it up. $85 or so.

Were looking for the Northeast's windiest locations (best coal draft, too) :D

Ever done one that was heavier than air....as it creeps down the auditorium floor in front of you and you see the people in the 3-4 rows in front of you successfully say .......ahhhhhhhh....God, who did THAT ?

That one was the skunkmeister......:roll: :roll:

Can't do that in a windstorm...
