Strong wind didn’t stop people in Southeast Wisconsin from enjoying the day, including  golfers, joggers and bikers dodging the strong gusts.

The heavy winds caused chaos with golf balls and for golfers like Jordan Gordon who struggled with his stance.

"It's a challenge, you've got to sort of like brace yourself because the wind is constantly pushing you back and forth," Gordon said.

"It's fun, needed my lead shoes today," said Doug Horter, another avid golfer.

Downtown walkers had to deal with the added resistance as well.

However, thousands were without power in the Milwaukee area including some in Whitefish Bay.

Whitefish Bay High School had to let school out early because high winds knocked trees over into power lines. Trees were snapped and traffic lights were out swaying above cars.

"They couldn't do anything on the computers, I wasn't too upset about it. It's really windy, I do hope they have school tomorrow," said Laina Haider, a parent of a student at the school.
