Well, Mark....the 1st post...has the problem...the 5th post has the supposed answer......it wasn't my problem, and it wasn't my original answer..115 is not my solution.
I've been trying obtain additional information from the OP....and trying to figure out how he /they could come up with an answer of 115.
And no, I don't get lost..
BTW...Winds are always stated in direction " From" . a West Wind ...comes from the West, no clarification is usually necessary at least not.. on the east coast..
