Oh yeah...it is a little blowy out here!
I live on a big hill, about 20 minutes from the coast and high enough (625 feet above sea level) so that I can see Mount Washington 150 miles away to the west. I get a 270 degree panoramic view, and just cleared 10 more acres so when the wind comes from the South, West or North, I get slammed. I mean literally. I live in a ranch so the big, long flat walls get hit by the wind and often buffet them. Since the trusses are tied in with the interior walls...the wall my headboard is on...a big gust of wind will actually rock the bed a little.
I have no barometer on my chimney, but it is straight up from my stove to the top of the chimney with no elbows, so she drafts pretty good. I think they say you want your chimney to be 2 feet above an obstruction within 10 feet, well mine is more like a mile from an obstruction! I am sure there are some trees closer than that, but you get the idea, when you live on top of a hill in a 60 acre field, draft is not that hard to obtain. On really windy days I can close my stove up tight and just let the vacuum that is produced from blowing across the top of the chimney pull the air up through it. It is kind of cool and your only real hope of controlling the air going to the fire.
We do have a windmill here (my Uncle) but it is too small, and while a big windmill company wanted to put in (3) 1 megawatt windmills here, our town voted it down and permanently banned windmill construction. They said this ridge could take 42 windmills and be feasible, but area towns all voted them out. It was stupid, we would have had free electricity for the next 20 years...everyone in this town!
