    Not sure if they are still there, but we had some trees down near the Broadmoor, next to the Golden Bee, that had risers going up all the way to the top. These trees were about 30' high, maybe more. Tom might know more about it, he worked there back in the day.

    I was in a class the other day and the guy had a pic of a PVB about 25 feet in the air.

    Sounds more like a barometric loop.
