I have no idea what caused me to burn and burn bad on May 3
You experienced a bad sunburn? ON May 3?
Well.....I can relate, from experience, some VERY bad sunburns in my lifetime....going back to 1978, and before.
One thing is......IF there is a high layer of cirrus clouds, when you 'lay out' in the Sun? They will NOT 'protect' you from sunburn.
You MUST use some form of 'SPF' cream....and, by the way (BTW) anything over 'SPF30' is a rip-off.
So....did you get a 'sunburn'? I have had the same thing, in my lifetime.....MANY times.....it hurts, then the outer layers of the epidermis die, and you "peel"....it's kinda cool!.....but, until that epidermis peels off, you look "tanned" beyond belief!!! It looks "good" for a few days.....until it peels........
This all depends, of course, on your original skin tone to begin with. Me? Caucasian.....prone to sunburn.
You???? (we don't know, yet....care to share????):

I can't say for certain it is hotter than previous years, but it sure seems like it.
A few weeks ago, I got sun burn when it was only 63F. I wasn't even outside for that long...
I know it's possible to get sun burn at lower temps, but I don't recall ever getting burnt so easily.
