May Sun

May is usually not that hot in the Metro Area. Our Memorial Day weekend is a testament to that. We are heating now with highs in the nineties the rest of the week. Hopefully, the heat will remind us to use sunscreen. Usually we can leave the furnace and the air conditioners off this time of year. The angle of the sun in May is very strong and in fact equal to that of July sun. We must remember to apply sun screen when we go out to garden or play golf or whatever. May is a very busy month in the Metro Area in terms of outdoor events and family events. If you are watching your son or daughter play soccer, baseball or lacrosse on the afternoon and you are forced to stand in the sun, usually reserved for visiting teams, please remember the sunscreen and this weekend remember to hydrate.
