This isn't bizarre at all. You can get a sunburn at anytime during the year. Heat is not what causes sunburns, its caused by UV rays. Normally we are more susceptible during the summer, because we are often shirtless or in swimsuits, and when we are in water and all those UV rays bounce off the water surface and hit our skin...OUCH!. BUT... we can actually get sunburns at anytime. Even on cloudy days. We can get some really nasty sunburns after it has snowed and and the sun comes out. All those UV rays reflect off the snow and its pretty crazy the sunburns we can get.
