"It was kind of nuts."

We got a fairly early start today to do the 120km to Sault Ste. Marie. The forecast looked like we may be in for a lot of rain but it seemed like it was more likely in the afternoon. The clouds looked pretty menacing all day but it was the wind once more that was the killer. It was by far the windiest day I've had yet. At one point I actually got blown off of the road, at another point I was going down a fairly step hill pedaling hard only going 12km/h. It was kind of nuts. Thankfully it wasn't that strong the entire time but it definitely slowed me down a lot today. I also decided to split off from Lucy today so I got into The Soo a while before she did. As soon as I got into the city it started raining lightly. I checked the forecast quickly and after seeing severe thunder storm warnings I decided to find another hotel. As soon as I had found one to stay in the sky opened up and it poured down hard. It's still pouring as I write this but it should be nice tomorrow for me to ride and camp.
