Who knew Snow was so Hot? Radioactive Snow in the Midwest
Mr X took these readings on 3/26/2011. The photos may not be used without express permission. The first photo shows an empty plate with a reading of 0.012 mR/Hr. The second photo shows a plate of radioactive snow with a reading of 0.045 mR/Hr. The radiation from the snow is 3.75 times greater than the empty plate. Of course, none of this means much from a fallout perspective without a reading from pre-Fukushima snow; but who knew snow was so hot?
