ALERT! Radioactive Rain @ 40 Times Greater Than Background Radiation

Update:4/29/13:  Good news, we were not able to detect any indications of long half life radiation on this sample.

We noticed a step function increase in our LIVE Outdoor Radiation Monitor and decided to take a surface swipe off of our SUV. That swipe returned approximately 40x greater than background radiation.

The reading is unusually high.  Given the surface winds and the overhead low we have some concern that there may be contamination from the La Salle nuclear plant. However, given the position of the jet stream we primarily suspect Fukushima.

We are doing long term testing of this sample in our lead cave to see if the decay curves show any long half life radiation.
