I had unbelievably intense rain from near Albany all the way home, to the point that there was water several inches deep on the Taconic, and on I84 folks were going about 20 mph with hazard lights on. I've never been in that kind of weather on a bike before, I could make a fist and see water pouring off the glove that had been squeezed out.
Through NH and VT was great, and most of my way through NY was good as well, but from (I think) about 2 until about 3:30 I was well drenched. Given that my left boot had a hole in it, at least one of my feet was soaked almost immediately, and the other one followed a short while later. Lack of a windscreen probably didn't help, but wouldn't have made all that much difference, probably.
