    Re: sunshine

    Today it was very sunny and we got a lot of sun. -- I would say this if I thought I had a bit of a sunburn.

    It's nice and sunny outside! Go out and get some sunlight!
    It's nice and sunny outside! Go get into the sunshine!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
