The height of my anemometer is 39' off the ground, 27' higher than the floor of my deck, just clear of the tree tops. The World Meteorological Organization has set the international standard height for wind measurement devices at 10 meters (33 feet) above ground, so I'm doing pretty well. Of course winds from the W/SW are completely unobstructed. Last night the wind was blowing from east so the readings weren't as high as they would've been if it had been a westerly. It blew an Adirondack chair off my bluff.
Last night, the Vortex2 got a workout - the maximum gust recorded was 37.6 mph from the east.

The sunset wasn't too shabby either.
Next project - planning to build a screen house with a cone fireplace in a few weeks. That should be amazing.
