Which Way Windy Wild Weather?

Right now the wind is shifting for the better of all challengers, but it won't last for long. The winds are continuing the shift from South to West and in the next 24 hours it's going to make it all the way up to North. But it looks like they will miss the brake pedal and keep on swinging back to the South; it think I hear a collective grrrrrrrrrr from the WaterTribers. I expet that everyone will put in a good push as soon as they can so that they don't get stuck like so many of them did today. If they don't make it in time now they can still fight the bad winds, and hope to make it to the finish line in time with a last minute shift to the West and North on Saturday/Sunday.
