You are right- gusting. Well that's still wind ya gotta cut through even if periodically.

Metro: good find!

I thought this was interesting: "Fadler said: “Zero to 180 degrees is oncoming wind, and anything from 180 to 360 degrees is going to help you.” I'd think that the 90 deg xwinds and tailwinds close to that would hurt and not help. I mean- to pull numbers from the air to illustrate- I'd think it would be "Zero to 180 degrees is oncoming wind, and anything from 200 to 340 degrees is going to help you.”

Guess I'll keep yammering about yaw when it comes up.
