And the forecasters are how accurate ???? LOL,
In all honesty I do not like fighting strong winds either but I don't let the forecast change my plans. I figure I have a 50% or better chance that they are wrong and my day will be just fine, if not I find something of interest to do and hang out until it calms down.
A couple of years ago I made a turn to the west out of Sioux Falls SD onto Rt 90 Headed for Rapid City SD and the headwind was very strong, I just dropped my speed down a little and kept heading west and it stayed steady so I put my head to work thinking what was close that I never do because I want to make miles. Ahhh, I always wanted to wander around Cabellas in Mitchell without feeling hurried, about 30 minutes later I was there, spent a couple hours walking around with no pressure, went out, wind still blowing, layed down, woke up about 3 hours later to no wind, jumped in the shower, had a sandwich and had one of the most relaxed trips into Rapid City I had ever had. After my 6 hour rest and relaxation I got in about 4 1/2 hours later than planned because of not stopping to eat etc, did that while the wind was blowing, plus I picked up a few cool little items at Cabellas.
If we wait until the things that are predicted to happen when it comes to the weather forcasters happen I would always be at the beach in the rain,setting in the snow in my shorts and trying to ride my snowmobile in July,,,they seem to be more confused than me
