    I say no, because I like knowing that I share my birthday with the highest wind speed recorded Makes blowing out the candles more interesting!

    A possible 'solution' is that, since the gauge was 10 ft above the roof, the accelerated wind wouldn't reach up that far, making the readings at the anemometer pretty accurate.

    I just wasn't sure about the exacts of 'building-induced wind exaggeration.' I emailed the owner of Grandfather Mtn to see if he could provide some details on how their old anemometer was set up, since that arrangement was deemed to be a poor one.
