Sea to Sea: Weathering the Tour

| |

Early on in the tour, Katrina Miller of Gaylord, Mich., somehow became the designated weather announcer. Each evening at the cyclists’ meeting, Miller would start off with her trademark, “OK!”

Based on reports received from her parents, she told cyclists what temperatures to expect, whether rain was in the forecast, and, most important, the predicted speed and direction of the wind.

Although the cyclists endured extreme heat during the first part of the tour, everyone marveled that they encountered rain on only three days of the entire nine weeks.
