I can't believe Miami only has 74 days a year!

Yeah, cumulative would e good - I guess I somehow thought it was. LOL!! And if you use sunscreen to block the sun's rays - which of course we all do to avoid skin cancer - then you are blocking the vitamin as well. So you have to live someplace sunny - really, really sunny and be outside in the in the sun for a good amount of time each day without sunscreen, or else you're DOOMED!!!!

Because of the whole vitamin D thing, I wear less sunscreen.

I wonder how they count the days, too. How does Miami have fewer days than Chicago???

Yeah, when it comes to any data, I always want to know the definitions, entry criteria, etc.

Yes, I was wondering what their definition of a sunny day was.

It has to be a totally sunny day from start to finish, no partly cloudy/partly sunny days
