The Crown Point observatory near Corbett, Oregon, noted for its extreme
winds, really outdid itself with some unofficial peak gusts of over
100mph (160km) 1/20/2014. The official wind gauge hit 87mph (140km) but
those with hand-held wind gauges recorded gusts of 103mph (165km) with
another person, Steve Pierce with the Oregon Chapter of the American
Meteorological Society, registering an unofficial gust of 115mph
(185km).



Wait till the very end.

There's a reason the Gorge is the windsurfing capitol of the world.

Not exactly a shitload of things that NH can lay claim to, but the world record wind speed of 231 mph still stands to this day.

Columbia River Gorge is one of the windiest places I've ever been.
