Oh, I know. I just had a funny moment.....

We get winds like this too but to get any honest figures out of the winds near ground level I'd want to see the tests being done out in an open field so the velocity and direction was consistent or nearly so. But I suppose if it was just for a quick idea of what to expect without taking the numbers as gospel a quick move to the back yard would provide a good idea of the effect. I know from testing little chuck gliders in my back yard that the trees and houses around me make the air look like it's in a washing machine.
