[Good News] 2x Background Radiation Rain in STL @ 10:10pm 5/14/11

Drought would be better, but post Fukushima Daiichi I will call this good news. A 10:10 pm  sample was taken from a vehicle which had been parked in the driveway for approximately 4 hours. The rain was a nasty Seattle type drizzle; the sample returned a max reading of 0.020 mR/hr (2 times background radiation). This is good news if your are stuck in the rain; but not so good for the local horticulture and dairy, a significant amount of Beta and Gamma radiation has fallen out on Saint Louis in the last few days.
