OK It's My Turn: A Sunburn In 5 Minutes?!

It's a very bright and sunny day here in Southern California. We just had several days of gloomy weather as that big storm that hit NorCal and San Francisco passed through. Now that it is gone, summer is back. The poor deciduous trees thought it was time to finally drop their leaves and got sort of stuck half way through the process.

Anyway so, I just went out to the market for some food, I was in the car and walking through the lot for a sum total of about 5 minutes.

I returned home, put things away and went to put some things in the bathroom.

When I looked at myself in the mirror, I realized that I am so sun burned that it looks like I have been outside working in the sun all morning.


I am really sensitive to that sort of thing because I spent practically all of my early adulthood working outdoors, so I know how dark I get and how burned and how long it takes. And this is way out of line. I waited 1/2 an hour before posting to make sure it was not an effect of blood pressure or whatever. Nope, I'm burned.

Burn to farmer's tan with tan lines in 40 minutes, 5 of which were spent exposed to the sun.

So, I know, I feel like a bit of a primitive squinting up, confused at the sun. But for what it's worth, there you have it.

Wear your sunscreen folks.

Anyone else in California experiencing this?

It's nothing to fear. The sun just messed up your monitortan.

Rule #1) Big flaming ball in sky? Hide.

That's what I mean! I feel like some crude savage running for his cave so the fireball doesn't get him. There's nothing like that to make a guy feel pretty cromag.

Ahhhg! Sun bad!

I guess Hef cares, at least, if I die of skin cancer overnight.

No, seriously, I get really darkly tanned and that zap I got today has got me looking very brown, not my imagination at all, I can safely say. Go figure.

High level of solar radiation/ blast? Maybe the south atlantic anomaly isnt such an anomaly? I remember an interview with David Sereda a couple years back, and he talked about a newly discovered solar particle (?), maybe its effects are, well, taking effect.
I think theres something up, either way...

Ahh I dunno, I still remember a few dacades ago I'd be in a specific suburb and the sun there would feel like it was on uber high. I could literally feel it burning as I walked.

A casual walk to the shops here can make it feel burnt too, that's

I have noticed the sun has been more intense for months now. It also seems a bit brighter and more "white" rather Han the "yellowish" color it used to be. Then I found this guys papers.

Perhaps he is on to something, or maybe he is just on something.
