Does your skin ever burn? Mine doesn't burn easy, but some sun soreness is easy for me to get after maybe 1/2 hr in summer, no sunscreen. To me sunburn sucks whether it's hot, warm, cool etc. outside. I do my best to aviod it with sunblock.

Boiled in the sun? Strange, I've always felt the sun having a drying, sometimes baking kind of effect.

On a day like 98 F with dewpoint at 80-82 F with no breeze, I can feel like I'm getting steamed in the shade, but when I get into the sunshine, the extra temperature has a drying effect that seems to improve my comfort; less sticky, but higher temp, so in that kind of weather a cold drink would need to be in hand, or near by. I'd probably take a swig every minute or so.

Well you have to consider Houston's humidity, so it feels like getting boiled to me because there's a lot of moisture in the air. And no I never get sunburned. I only get a tan.

Lucky!

Does it seem weird that my skin can burn, yet most days with a heat index of 110 F feels comfy to me?

No it doesn't seem weird. A lot of people don't feel a sunburn, but you need to be careful with that.

I know.
Maybe that last post was kind of stupid anyways.

BTW, is spring over yet, or are there still plants leafing out?
Any early summer blooms?

Up here spring started a few days ago. (after 7.5 months of waiting )
Daffodils blooming, early trees leaves are popping open, today is sunny and 65 F.

No I don't think it's over because it actually hasn't gotten very hot yet. Still warm, rainy, and windy some days. Pretty much all of the flowers are gone though.

yeah, it seems like Spring is still trying to hang on a bit this year (longer than most years), but it does feel like it on the outswing in the last day or two. Highs should be above 80 all this week and by next weekend we could be flirting with 90-degrees in the afternoon. Summer is getting close!
