we've only seen gusts a bit over 20 knots so far...
I always wonder where people get their measurements from when they quote wind speeds.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I have an anemometer on the roof, along with a weather vane, a rain gauge, a thermometer, a hydrometer and a sky camera. Readings are regularly uploaded to a central server via the Net.
