Wind today on May 1st

Geeesh: I thought I was riding in a hurricane on the way home. Wind swirling off the foothills between Auburn and Sumner. Did anyone else have fun with it too?

I got to deal with the wind over here in Moses today, fun fun! I swear I had a headwind every direction I rode. Only went out for 20mi, but it feels like I have been climbing all day.
Hope the wind blows itself out over there by May 16 Stringbreaker!

That easterly wind brought me to a stand still going uphill. I usually take one break going up but today I took three breaks to let the heart rest.

Here in the mountains too. But that's how it is every day in spring and early summer, it seems.

Low pressure moving in with the high pressure trying to fill from the east means brisk winds throught the gaps of the foothills. Usually place like Enumclaw and Buckley but sometimes we get them in the Puyallup/Auburn valley areas like today.

On friday I was heading east bound on the I-90 bridge and that was not a pleasant experience.
