    Looks like some of the strongest winds they've had all winter.

    Very impressive where I live as well.

    I drove up to Tilton this morning from Manchester and it felt like I was flying a kite, rather than driving. Lots of snowmobile trailers on the road, I don't know how they handle the winds, those trailers are so light.

    On your home weather station or nearby? That's impressive

    My weather station in VT froze up yesterday afternoon with the freezing rain then 30mph sustained winds broke it free around 1am this morning and we had a gust of 46mph.

    38mph at my station in CT, and that's at 15 ft with some tree sheltering.

    Looks like you need to hire an intern to do some regular deicing inbetween the hourly readings.
