How much wind is too much? (Very windy this week around here)

I'm wondering if I'm getting soft. We've had 15-20 mph SW wind (20-30 km/h) this week(with gust of wind up to 45-50 mph), This mean a big tailwind for me in the morning but a big headwind on the way back home at night. I take almost 20 min. more to cover the same distance on my way home. I can deal with rain, snow, hot and cold but the wind is affecting me a lot. I go 2/3 of my 54kms RT commute on a rural road along the Yamaska river, surrounded by soya fields so nothing there to break the wind.

For you how much wind is too much? Am I too soft?
