Nik Wallenda said on Friday the weather won't be a problem for his tight rope walk above Chicago on Sunday. In fact, it's the Windy City nickname that drew him here.

"Yes, I've heard the arguments that its about politics and not weather. But that's what really attracted me to this city in the first place," Wallenda said.
"I love to continue to challenge myself and push myself to be better at what I do."

Wallenda says he's trained using wind machines blowing gusts up to 120 miles per hour, so he's ready for whatever is thrown his way. And if things don't go as planned, Wallenda says his rescue crew is ready to go. He'll just hang on to the wire until they reach him.
