3:30pm Storms @ 9X Greater Than Background Radiation

 After an hour long thunder storm, we took a paper towel swipe sample off of the surface of our truck at approximately 3:40pm, . That sample returned a reading of 9X background radiation. Our live airborne radiation monitor did show an up tick, see chart below.

. Compared to our 8/8/12 storm readings which were 91 times greater than background radiation (and still continue to be radioactive),  the current sample is one of the lower readings we have had since Fukushima.  The amount of fallout in our rain strongly correlates to the Jetstream's location. At present, the Jetstream is broken up and several hundred miles north of Saint Louis.
