I rode to work with a 30 mph headwind, today, which gusted to close to 40 mph according to the TV weather gal. There was one point on the ride where I was giving it all I had...at 6 miles per hour!
At least traffic was not too bad. As a matter of fact, I've noticed that traffic has been lighter than usual, the past couple of days. I don't know why that would be, but the crossings I've made at 17th, 6th, Alameda, and Leetsdale have been pieces of cake, compared to the normal run of things.
I've been leaving work at the same time in the afternoon, when I've noticed this phenomenon, so I don't know what's going on. Not complaining, though; just an observation.
The ride home was a lot less windy than this morning's effort. The wind was mostly from the west, and the houses on the neighborhoods I travel through tend to shelter me a bit from westerly winds. Hopefully, weatherdotcom has it right, and I'll get a tailwind in the morning.
