it was the first time in more than 20 years that i got the 'redneck' sunburn... after less than +3 hours of sun-time from 12: noon till 4 PM...i got a very strong dose that made me very sensitive on the bedsheets and wearing a old-codger shirt to look presentable for my marketing at bi-lo grocery the very next day
now it is Friday and i have healed enough... but will wear a shirt on all my future outings in the yard
i say that the SUN is white hot..instead of the mellow yellow it used to be in my younger years in PA/WV/Michigan even during my mid 20s in Fla when the sunshine was pleasant instead of intense
P.S Does anyone know if skin gets more sensitive as we get older?...

yeah, it must if you gravitate toward living a AC/ TV watching, 'mushroom' existance...
Except for a steady rain, i am outdoors, wearing a mesh fishing vest, for 10 hours a day...
if the rain stops me from outside work then i'm indoors doing remodeling, etc
i think junk like steady tobacco smoking and coffee wears the skin out more than vitamin D sunshineedit on 4-5-2012 by St Udio because: (no reason given)

From my own personal observations, this is how it goes around here. SoCal used to be known for it's sunny, clear days that displayed a lovely warm glow on the landscape. At least that is how it was almost a decade ago when we moved here.
Now, we are lucky to have more than a few days of sun a week. Most days, the skies are hazed over..almost white, if not gray.
So it stays fairly cool, even cold at times. Then we will have a day or two of "contrail"-less skies. Every time, without fail..after this interval, the sun feels like it is BOILING and the heat goes right up. I burn very quickly, which used to be unheard of for me..I always tanned.
Then the haze is back, sun is faded and the cool is back. I noticed it so many times, I started to keep a log.

I mean......really.....I'd get "dinged" for a 'one-line' response, but that was my entire sentiment. (unless I embellish).
There is no "change" in the brightness, radiance, nor thermal activity from the Sun.
If this were to be the case, it would have dominated the news, with astronomers, solar scientists, and every other related scientific discipline you can name, those who make it their life's work to study the Sun, proclaiming "something" by now.
Maybe it was a particularly clear day, with low humidity (both at ground level, and at higher altitudes) and thus, no clouds in the vicinity?

Are you serious? Do you really think you have to be worried about what one of the big post count members thinks of your post? Are you afraid to say what you think? I'm not. I believe there is something going on with the sun. Its brighter, it feels hotter, and the weather has wild swings. This is not normal.

Once i had my SPF 75+ on...
Here are some facts about SPF:
What is SPF?
If you pay any extra money for anything above SPF 30 (or so) thinking it is going to be "more protective"?
Then, it's a waste of money.
