My wife was a fire lookout for years and had a very complete weather station on site with digital anemometer and I was always amazed at what seemed to me to be 30mph wind would always be more like 10-15. I felt the wind make me stagger around and it would barely be in the 20's.
Not saying that anyone here is wrong, but I do very much overestimate wind speed.
