2/10/12 4:15pm Light Snow Radioactive At 20X Greater Than Background Radiation

We took a paper towel swipe of melted light snow from the hood of our SUV at 4:15pm on 2/10/12; that sample returned a value of 20X greater than background radiation.

Twenty Times background radiation (approximately 0.20 mR/hr) is the typical minimum fallout reading we have gotten from Northern Jetstream storms since the August 2011 earthquakes in Fukushima.

The current reading is from the leading edge of the Northern Jetsteam moving through the Saint Louis region; we expect readings to increase if the snowfall continues through the evening.
