…..when it’s overcast with the thickest clouds you’ve ever seen?
or i should ask it this way, can one still get a sunburn through a thick cloud of grey clouds?
the answer is yes, yes yes!
we have just returned from the beach. we were there for 2 days. the first day is was hazy and cool out. cool enough that i had to sit outside wrapped in a blanket. ridiculous!
the 2nd day it was a nice, perfect beach day — overcast, not too hot, not too bright, breezy, etc…. a perfect day to sit out and read an incredible book and spend time chatting with friends.
i want to note here — i DID wear sunscreen even though it seemed that god himself would have to use a jackhammer to break through those clouds with sun!!
the result of the perfect beach day — a sunburn like i have not had in a long, long time. tender shoulders, stingy shin skin, bleached out arm hairs, a sunglasses tan line, freckles freckles and more freckles, etc…. it’a a sight to see…..
so, the next time you wonder if a sun ray can reach the earth through a fort knox of clouds – consider yourself warned! 😉
