```# How does the speed of plotting wind barbs compare to that of plotting icons?
# How long would it take to plot many wind barbs?
# Results: It takes about 5 seconds to plot 10000 wind barbs, which is significantly slower
# than just plotting circles but it is within a reasonable speed. The speed is about the same
# when plotting 100 vs 10000 barbs (as in it takes 100 times longer to plot 10000 barbs than 100 barbs.)
