@ksryder, thank you. I still want to hear from someone in terrain like mine. Boston and New York are coastal cities. The skyscrapers both cities have and the tall, shear cliffs NYC has create serious and strong eddies, You can round the corner of a building and be blasted over by wind coming from another direction than you were just feeling. It makes accurate sampling tricky, and I guess it makes sampling a little less useful. A lot is left to unpredictable luck. I've been blasted I almost got knocked sideways into traffic. I imagine winds are stronger and steadier in Kansas. I've heard about your strong winds, but I believe your landscape is less faceted.
