11am Rainfall Radioactive At 3 Times Greater Than Background Levels

We took a sample swipe from a piece of sheet metal at approximately 11:00pm; that sample returned a reading of 3 times greater than background radiation. 3x is the maximum we would have expected prior to the Fukushima Meltdowns.

Today's readings are significantly lower than yesterday's 19x reading, and the jet stream remains far north of Saint Louis. However, one significant obvious difference remains betweens last night's thunderstorms and today's rain. Thunderstorms can pull 'weather' in from much higher in the atmosphere than the type of rain we are currently experiencing here today in Saint Louis.
