Japan Researchers: Models show North America hit with ‘very high’ levels from Fukushima plume — Radioactive material in ocean off West Coast was up to 500 times more than expected (VIDEO)

Published: August 27th, 2014 at 1:48 pm ET


Source term estimation of atmospheric release due to the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident by atmospheric and oceanic dispersion simulations, Japan Atomic Energy Agency, 2013 (emphasis added):

  • FNPP1 accident widely dispersed radionuclides across the entire North Pacific region… simulation results in some area of the eastern North Pacific showed a tendency of underestimation against observed data… the simulation results in the eastern North Pacific [for 134Cs] were also lower than the measurement results. This tendency indicates that the actual abundance of 134Cs in the eastern North Pacific was higher… We attributed this tendency to an underestimation of the release rate in the initial source term… source term was estimated on the basis of environmental monitoring data on land. However, monitoring data in the ocean were not considered… accuracy of the initial source term [from March 12-14] was low…  it was impossible to classify the volume of the amount released as a result of [Unit 3’s] explosion.
  • Cesium-134 simulation with the new source term… the new source term increased the traffic transport of radionuclides to the east… the new release rates at all 18 terms increased… However, the simulation results [using new source term] in some areas of the eastern North Pacific remain underestimated.

Note: Rightmost point inside large oval in the graph above shows a calculated (i.e. estimated) Cs-134 level of below 2E-05 Bq/L (.02 Bq/m³). The observed CS-134 level exceeded 1E-02 Bq/L (10 Bq/m³) — 500+ times than estimated.

94th Annual American Meteorological Society Meeting, 2014:

  • The Science Council of Japan launched a model intercomparison project to review the capability of current numerical models to reproduce the transport of radioactive materials released to the environment as a result of the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant… results show relatively good agreement of the deposition pattern of 137Cs, indicating significant deposition of 137Cs over the northwestern Pacific up to the Aleutian Islands, and reaching to the western part of North America.
  • 7:30 in — TY Tanaka, Japan Meteorological Agency: This map shows the horizontal distribution of cesium-137. As you can see, they show similar patterns of results from Fukushima power plant to the northwest Pacific Ocean and to the Aleutians. Some models reach very low North America — but some of them reach very high.

        The USA has stored well over 60,000 megatons of fission byproducts in approximately 100 locations. More than 60x greater than our total n-weapons arsenal. I.E. 100 small tactical n-weapon hits can turn the USA into radioactive hell hole. Note: Fukishima cores 1,2&3 contain an estimated 95 to 170 megatons worth of fission byproducts.

        No amount of time spent in fall out shelter can protect you from that scale of contamination(60,000 MT+). Eventually you'll run out of food, come out, and consume locally grown contaminated foodstuffs. Then it's all over.

        So forget using a fallout shelter for anything long term. Short term it can save your life, anything longer than a month or two, forget it. You'll need resources to travel to southern hemisphere ,(and be welcomed). Good luck with that.

        I suspect that HAARP has been pushing that along. You may not be aware of the atmospheric bridge, reported to extend from Alaska to Australia; which may be helping to lessen the fallout over the US.
        Personally I am not impressed..http://rense.com/general95/haarp1.html

        However, while lessening the fallout down the West Coast of the US, it may also be affecting the weather there.

        Bombs Ahoy! Why the UK is desperate for nuclear power

        On the face of it, the UK government's obsession with nuclear power defies reason. It's very expensive, inflexible, creates 'existential' threats and imposes enormous 'long tail' liabilities tens of thousands of years into the future. But there is a simple explanation: it's all to maintain the UK's status as a nuclear WMD state.

    80% of their nuclear poison blew out over the ocean but they measured on land, not counting reactor three when it blew up. As a result, they accidentally under-estimated the doses.

    Reminds of a drunk driver who just killed several pedestrians, "Officer, I only had one drink!"

    By minimizing the actual dose, people did not take adequate precautions to protect their families who were downwind. I have never met a person I would trust with radiation. Mistakes do happen, especially where profits are to be made.

    Civilian populations have to expose themselves to deadly radiation for this industry. The defense departments also require civilians to be exposed to testing and accidents. Einstein knew that this would happen because of anthropology. Higher primates are still primates.

    • TEPCO did an incredibly bad job of managing information and use of data was bastardized; both JGov and TEPCO put at risk many people because they did not follow protocols and gave bad information about safe destinations. It's all very revolting.

      • We Not They Finally

        Not that the U.S. did not know. OF COURSE IT WAS KNOWN. Obama took the wife and kids to South America on a sudden, unplanned trip during the initial plume. And they don't live on the West Coast at all. All he had to say was stay out of the rain as a precaution. Never even got that much.

        • Yes! US knew darned well in near real time!!! And, all people did get from Obama was the opposite of warning. He assured people there was nothing to worry about (paraphrase). I've not heard anything more from him on Fukushima. Freak.

          • danger kitty danger kitty

            Remember, Obama's pal/golfing buddy is Jeff Immelt, CEO of General Electric., designers/builders of fuku reactors– a flawed design so bad senior engineers resigned in protest.
            Warning US citizens about deadly fallout/rainout would tend to put his pal's product in a bad light.

                If he and/or Michelle and the kids had stayed down there, that would be among the good reasons for impeachment, i.e., abandonment of duties or however it should be phrased. However, they all came back. So either the trip was planned well ahead of time (as such state visits tend to be) and coincident to the disaster, or the family tried to flee but were all dragged back somehow, even the kids. I think the former is more likely. It might be interesting to start a list of TPTB who have actually relocated to the far south. I know of none though.

        • Tim42

          Of course they knew about it. The current head of EPA, "Gina McCarthy" got to <a href="http://majiasblog.blogspot.com/2013/04/gina-mccarthy-and-failed-radnet-system.html">her current position</a> by shutting off RAD NET Beta radiation sensors when they hit the "Danger" level of 500cpm shortly after 3/11.

      • Socrates

        Need to know vs. Public health is tricky. When does not creating panic get trumped by giving a warning to potentially exposed populations? When do vested interests trump public safety?

        Paul Revere road through the streets warning, The British are coming!" What if he had held stock in the Bank of England?

        If the theater is on fire, it should be proclaimed by disinterested persons with due regard to not causing panic. But the arsonists themselves are rarely objective.

        If the president left the Northern Hemisphere with his family suddenly, that conduct could be non-assertive conduct that speaks volumes, between the lines, that massive amounts of fallout was coming our way.

  • PhilipUpNorth PhilipUpNorth

    They didn't even recommend that teachers in the PNW keep the kiddies inside at recess on the days the plume produced the most fallout.
    Many thanks, US, for once again putting the interests of the nuclear industry above public health.
    Also note that all estimates based on models gave lower then actual results.

    … ''monitoring data in the ocean were not considered… from [March 12-14] the estimation accuracy of the initial source term at this period was low… it was impossible to classify the volume of the amount released as a result of [the Unit 3] explosion. …
    … The observed level is over 500 times the estimated level. …
    – the new scientific method: never let facts stand in the way of a good make-believe model.
    So the new rule of thumb: listen to what they say, then multiply by 500, then multiply by 10 because ''the simulation results [using new source term] in some areas of the eastern North Pacific remain underestimated.''
    And we'll never really know because ''monitoring data in the ocean were not considered… from [March 12-14] the estimation accuracy of the initial source term at this period was low… it was impossible to classify the volume of the amount released as a result of [the Unit 3] explosion.''
    The UN and the IAEA based their assessments of relative harm on these make-believe early models. I look forward with interest to their revised assessments ha ha ha. I won't hold my breath because i'm too busy laughing.

      – so do we multiply by 500 for the initial underestimation, multiply by 10 for the ongoing underestimation, and then multiply by 2000 for the other radionuclides? ha ha ha, science is fun, i got to run off, get some degrees, become an authority so i can also play make-believe. just think, no need to test, just wing it, all you need is a good imagination. and if you do by mischance run into some real data, just divide by 2000, then divide by 10, then divide by 500 and viola! you have an authoritative model that is so clean that it is fit for human consumption.

  • Hi All,

      From what I have seen in plant mutations from the mid-west and east coast, they MAY have been hit harder than the PNW. I have a very hard time finding plant mutations here to match the crazy stuff I have seen back east. Some of the plumes were up high and passed over and then were pushed down by the rocky mountains. But then it only takes ONE hot particle to start a really bad health ride.

      R007, technically you're better off than let's say, Seattle. But the wind currents can be very tricky. We had a good friend in Pittsburgh diagnosed with TWO separate cancers all of 2-1/2 years in, one of them stage four. And this mystified us. (Well, it upset us, but also mystified us.) Then we heard a recent Leuren Moret interview that said that due to wind currents, one of the two hardest hit U.S. cities by the initial plume was Pittsburgh!

      Have no idea how to get hold of back-data, even in the U.S., much less Canada. Here the EPA has monitoring stations, which I've seen them just turn off when the rad readings go too high, but at least there is some idea what cities TEND to be hardest hit. (Amarillo TX, Denver CO, and Albuquerque NM really bad!) But even then it is "just" beta and gamma. Beta is easy to read — gamma I haven't figured out yet. And plutonium (for example) is alpha, so a community could be VERY hard hit with plutonium (like Carlsbad, NM with the WIPP blow-up,) but no data made publicly available. (Come to think of it, they routinely turn off the monitors there for beta and gamma too!)

      This can be VERY hard to keep track of. But good for everyone to take some holistic precautions. Liposomal vitamin C good overall protection (lots of youtubes on how to make it.) Baking soda is a good overall protection for cancer, as it turns the body alkaline. Eat organic (though those veggies still get rained on,) stay away from fish, and the like.

      Hi Rebecca, I'm in Canada as well, eastern Quebec. As Obewan says, the jetstream is circulating all Fuku atmospheric release particles worldwide.I saw a large spike on my rad detector on July 31, about 20 times "normal"background levels. This was after a heavy rain, and 5 days after reports of a big spike on Japanese government monitoring stations in Fukushima prefecture. 5 days is about right for jetstream stratospheric transit time Fuku to eastern Canada. I saw another even bigger spike, about 30 times "normal" on August 14. Again, it was after a rain. Get yourself a detector and check it yourself! If you don't have the 500 bucks for a Geiger counter, check this DIY detector out:

        One further detail…the July 31 spike took 4 days to slowly fade back to near normal levels. The bigger August 14 spike took 6 days.

      Minerals is actually VERY important. A lot of key radionuclides supplant specific minerals in the body — plutonium for iron, strontium for calcium, uranium for magnesium, cesium for potassium, undoubtedly many others.

      Sea vegetables (kelp, spirulina, seaweed) used to be excellent for mineral supplementation, now it's contaminated and dicey. Just always check the source. I think there are greenhouse-grown sea minerals out there.

      Had one land on my leg last night…felt like a bite.. but nothing there. 🙁

      • Ok Obe, now that you mention what a hot particle landing feels like, I will too! Outside on two separate occasions (before I got a geiger counter) I was just looking around my yard and thinking about how friends have said as the years progress, the sun feels hotter, whiter glare and whatnot. So I'm pondering the whole different feel, easier to get sunburnt, I agree.

        Next I was startled by the most unexpected series of ping! ping! ping!….several TINY separate dots of pain hit my exposed forearm.

        I jumped, rubbed my arm…saw nothing in the air and thought wow, WTH? that felt exactly like when hot welding sparks hit skin. I've occasionally used a metal grinder which throws sparks but not quite as a piercing quick jab into the skin feeling. It's hard to describe how it's such a tiny but distinct invisible dart of needle sharp pain.

        A couple weeks later, when I had shorts on, was outside, checking out my plants and walking here and there. ZING! One hit my leg…again didn't see a mark but it was the same fast spit of pain that the previous ones did. So sudden and impossible to not notice.

        Finally I mentioned it during a phone call to the friend in Florida…she was glad I did since it also had happened to her and neither of us had wanted to bring it up as it's the kind of statement that put's a person in the *Yup, you're a loonie alarmist* category.

              This is just another reason for having your own high quality radiation testing tool; keep it handy.

          The most ionizing of the known radiation is spontaneous fission, because of the recoil and the mass of the particles involved. Not to mention three neutrons that transmute three other atoms into entirely different matter. So, if a small cluster of transuranic isotopes were to land on one of your limbs, yes it can be felt. Better externally than internally, of course.
          When I was just knee high to a grasshopper, I got an ant farm for Christmas. I had great fun watching the ants tunnel their way through the sand and build a wonderful little society. My big brother often times had to be a jerk and give the farm a few good shakes. What happens is the ants go hysterical and work their way to the top of the sand and begin raising all sort of hell about their newly found conditions.
          In California, there was a big earthquake and now all those little invisible radioactive ants are up biting the hell out folk by the bay and inland towards sac.
          Noble gases will make very weak bonds with matter and it only takes a little shake to free them sometimes. A chemist by the name of Johannes Diderik van der Waals discovered these weak forces.

          Here's some interesting, could-be-evidence of a hot particle…
          August 21 at 9AM, I was out taking a rad reading from my backyard lawn, as I have been doing 3 times a day for a few months now.
          It was reading near "normal background" levels,but then, in a split second, the numbers jumped up to about 12 times normal. This high reading then proceded to fade back down to normal over the space of just a minute or so. This was the first time I'd seen this phenomenon. What think ye?

          • 🙂 Right, it get's your attention. Sometimes it sounds like a mini-machine gun spurt going off. I can see damage from the radiation *tracks* and hot pockets on the leaves of some plants and surmise it's an example of how the bursts hit one area and not another.

            Some plants will be doing OK, then after a rain storm, a day or so later, I can see the proof. There will be some little dots or streaks starting to turn whitish, then holes where bugs or fungus attack the weakened leaves and finally the layer of leaves that got hit will be loosing their chlorophyll making the coloration kind of a sickly reddish brown. However, the plant will keep putting on new growth and if no new hot particles are sweeping through, that next layer of leaves are fine.

            So basically, we're talking about what nuclear experts consider a "safe low level" (haha) passing through, that definitely DOES damage plant cell structure however. Plants have no anti-nuker alarmist agenda turning their state of health on and off…plants don't lie. 🙂

            And let me say, the rad counts don't even have to be THAT elevated…. maybe showing 8-10 CPM's higher than whatever my back ground average had been. My out in the yard normal, between new Fuki emissions, is roughly 19-23 CPM's these days on a GMC320-plus device.

          I work outside A LOT (landscaping and lawn work, my therapy) and am routinely experiencing this INTENSE spiked pain… only to look and there is not a bug biting me or nothing visible.

    So my next question is how long do we have before the effects of 500 times worse shows it's face?
    I wonder how fast we can finish off the planet and our selfs if we really tried? a day , week , month just how fast and what will it take? i think i'm in shock just watching the world go by day by day rushing around with only our self interests in mind and heaven forbid you talk out about something that effects more then just your self! we are so screwed ! so it was lucky to find a four leaf clover , but is it lucky to find large patches of them? when this started i thought it would be cool to find a mutation of some sort and now i'm tired of them!

    The then Governor of Virginia, McDonald, warned the state and the citizens not to drink rain water due to radiation. This is the same man charged and facing prison, left office early. One has to wonder if part of his troubles are due to NOT playing the game as I am sure a lot of other political types have done a lot worse than have a batty wife.


    What happened in the past two wreks that caused my outside 24/7 radiation monitoring system to reach highs I have never seen before? Please view public graph below.


    • pinksailmatt pinksailmatt

      Some thoughts…

      Intense radiation streams that were transported up and then airborne started to circle the globe…streams go up & hit a high spot adjusted in height by gravitational and static intensities, then dip back down and slam into the earth…then traveling up again…only to be repeated time and time again.

      Radnet graphs have to be looked at very carefully over time to get any real idea what is going on. The stuff they put out after 311 was such a joke. Many sites have had their graph lines knocked down by a factor of 10x just this last year 2014.

      Reactor unit La Salle 2, south of your location by 150 miles, had a scram event Aug 6, 2014.. It looks like winds carried radioactive gases NW of location and then back towards your location many days later.

    Anyone ever tried to find cancer statistics for the U.S. that includes data after 3/11? Mysteriously, the only thing I can find now are pre-fuku. I'm sure I found a graph one time that included dates that were at least into 2012.

  • Dick Shenary

    Take a look at NetC gamma readings for Billings, Montana. CPM readings there are consistantly 550 to 800 CPM day after day. I thought that this was odd in that Billings is a small town with very little medical radiation sources. It seems unlikely that this level is from Fukushima as other small towns nearby do not have high readings. Then I read that Billings allows radioactive fracking waste water to be dumped in their community landfill for a price. Fracking techniques also use radioactive materials as markers. It seems the good local government of Billings has sold out the townspeople for fracking waste fees. More and more these days, it seems that energy production is killing or harming us except for the renewables.

  • DrSpindrift

    The source term is then 500 times what was originally calculated. That would be 500 Chernobyls, then? Thats three cores and three spent fuel pools and one engineering pool. Ouch.

  • weeman

    All I know is the janapese people should be thankful of small mercies, can you imagine the magnitude of the disaster if the majority of the radioactive substances had landed on the land, instead of in the sea, we are already seeing its effects on the whole pacific ocean and the west coast of America took a direct hit, what would have been the consequences if their was another country next door and took the brunt of the plumb, who would be responsible and how do you compensate that country, a simple sorry is not going to be good enough and say that is the price of progress?

    Think about it DNA strands (I believe) are like an bi-directional antenna networks, heavily tied to how we deeply communicate with each other [obviously among many things] also tied to our critical evolution in this period of profound human spiritual ascension to reaching higher functioning levels of be'ing. On so many levels we are collectively being shunted, blocked from our higher capacities within this orbital plane of existence.

  • Alan Reid Alan Reid

    Still not a single word about getting the common spent fuel storage unit moved to a safer locale yet. Does North America even get the picture? A gargantuan quadruple barreled radioactive shotgun with 5 or 6 thousand tons of ammo. A serious wallop waiting to turn our whole biosphere inside out and nothing is being done to limit the damage COMING to North America and beyond. If they lose control of the CSFSU standing meters away from the destroyed reactors and it burns anyone want to guess as to how bad it will be even on the other side of the planet? That spent fuel IS the news of the day. Not doing something about that fuel BEFORE it burns is ADMITTING THEY WANT IT TO BURN FOLKS!!! WAKE UP!!

  • We go surfing in Ventura, usually twice a week. This summer, I have the good fortune of having an Inspector Plus with and every surf session, the CPM average of the SAND is around 72 CPM to 80 CPM. It's been constant all summer.

    We wash everything afterwards: wetsuits, booties, towels, boardshorts, et al. Then take a scrubbing shower followed by EDTA detox.

    But even with those precautions, at those measurements, it's only a matter of time. 40 miles inland, averages are above 60 CPM, on ANYTHING we test.

    Assuming what we are seeing must be typical for most of the area.

    And as they say, these isotopes don't dillute. Tried waking up the other locals, but every one of them, simply doesn't want to know.

  • And know this: People see me using the geiger counter, usually someone will ask what I am doing. Then I give them the 3 minute reality check on Fukushima, radiation levels. Almost invariably, someone else will discount every single word I'm telling whomever, with some bs about the government would tell us, or that's some kind of junk toy, not a "real" geiger counter, etc.

    There is always some doubter on hand to keep things quiet. Every time.

    When I start giving them the heavy facts, they actually get angry. Imagine that. At me.

    I always say, better to know and know when to finally stop coming to the beach, then not know and watch your children die a horrible and agonizing death. And the little ones depend on us to protect them WITH THE TRUTH.

    That shuts them up.

    • tinfoiled tinfoiled

      It seems people are quite happy in their ignorance. Unless the 'purveyors of truth' (CNN,FOX,BBC etc) tell them what's going on, it never happened. My neighbors wife used to wave or say "hi" when she saw me outside. After telling her about Fukushima and to avoid seafood from the Pacific, she pretends not to see me. She has teenage children and I felt it important to pass on the information.
      It's a sad state of affairs when people rely on the word of MSM, before they are willing to protect their families. 🙁

    • I've had good luck with preceding any discussion of Fukushima by saying something like, "It's a trust thing. I don't believe regular media is suddenly going to be allowed to mention anything about the extra radioactive exposure we're still getting from the meltdowns. I mean think about it…the nuclear industries would get a bad name and pretty much the public would panic and want them shut down."

      Then they either walk away in an understandable *fear of doom* knee-jerk reaction, or they respond and I answer best I can any questions they have.

  • ISeePinkClouds

    It is not that we simply were dosed here in the U>S> one time as a result of the thermonuclear detonation of FDNPP #3 Reactor Core and Spent Fuel Pool, as of today I have hardly heard anything about the amount of radionuclides still in the Upper Atmosphere circling the entire Earth every four days. Nor have I heard any discussion about the rate those radionuclides are entering the troposphere. I suppose Cyantists will begin to consider that source of radiation poison eventually, but we can't wait for that.
    I just want to make two personal comments regarding this. I have a Gieger Counter and I chart the readings. I have seen rain from the clouds carried by the Northern Jet Stream across Japan, and to the U.S., and over my location, to significantly increase radioactivity detected by my counter. Rain from clouds crossing the Pacific but at lower latitudes show greatly reduced readings by comparison. You can observe this too using NASA Satellite Imagery, and NETC.org. Also, in reference to radionuclide contamination in the U.S.: I have also observed that following a sighting of applied Geoengineering through the release of nano particles of aluminum and other elements from airplanes into the Upper Atmosphere that I see, within two to four hours, a double-humped spike in my Geiger Counter readings and chart. Multiple "chemtrails" produce more "spikes". I would like others to confirm these observations. It appears to me as if we are getting REPEATEDLY "dosed"…

    @uwantsun; First, welcome to ENEnews! I haven't seen your screen name before so I wanted to say hello & glad you're with us! 🙂
    I know EXACTLY what you mean about the reactions of the sheep herd when you try to warn them that a pack of wolves are loose in the area so lethal it will get the young or vulnerable and all the rest soon after! I had a pair of neighbor-friends in a couple who lived next door & visited often enough to see my Geiger unit reach blood-curdling high readings from the air alone, much less the samples of snow from our porch railing or hood of my Jeep on a dry paper towel that they collected personally before watching me slide it under my pancake-tubed Geiger counter where it tested the maximum limits of its functional operating range even as far inland as our Midway Airport, Chicago,IL from Fukushima & even CA!! They looked puzzled at first but read my grave expressions & concern uncomfortably for awhile before telling me,"dude,stop!,you're ruining our buzz" & get angry that I was paying more attention to the "toy" clicking & chirping alarm that annoyed them as soon as the novelty wore off which was a few minutes after the alarm chime was still sounding but drowned out by my erratic,racing heartbeat??!!So what does my pals girl who spent her life in Long Beach,CA & whose family still resides there do?She makes an effin' snowball & eats it like an ice cream cone!! 🙁 YUCK!As someone recently posted,"people ARE collectively stupid"!!Take Care 🙂

      p.s., If you haven't been hangin' out here awhile before posting & didn't see any of my monotonous stream of depressingly detailed descriptions of our ongoing ordeal with my wife's aggressive,(previously)rare,Stage 3B Inflammatory Breast Cancer & her treatments for it & the "mysterious" seizure disorder that preceded her sudden,unexpected,near-terminal cancer by the time of diagnosis,then you probably will now! 🙁 I've never had any doubt in my mind that her cancer @ age 39 began with the global fallout she would go out in to travel to her former job as a home health caregiver for seniors and her volunteer church activity duties during the Spring 2011 until her seizures & syncope,asthma & then cancer all took her down hard by the Valentines Day 2012 cancer diagnosis & chemo scheduling appointments tat began by 3/1/12! 🙁
      I was given "hands-on training" fast,hard & up close & personal and my messages still haven't gotten through to my thick-skulled,apathetic "friends",many of which opted to "unfriend" me from FarceBook(Boo Hoo Hoo,as I rub my eyes)NOT!!!(anymore anyways)…But I do feel a little bad for them & a LOT worse for their youngsters who rely on parental guidance & protection from ALL harm!! I've never stopped trying to get through to others & did manage to get through to a very few which is a start I suppose. People who think I try to scare them or make them look STUPIDER compared to me prove that they ARE all by themselves & I wish it wasn't so!…

    • I've been posting here on and off for about 2 plus years.

  • Also, the readings are definitely going up. They were about the mids 40s to low 60s 9 months ago, now average is 72 CPM to 80 plus.

    It is definitely building…when the averages hit over 100 daily, we are quitting surfing. Something very beautiful, wonderful, connecting with the sea, sand, and air all at the same time.

  • Lastly, we just came in from surfing this morning ( I live 10 minutes from the beach) the high was 107 CPM…then averaged lower.

    We had to go. Big swells and DOH.

    • Thanks for keeping us updated. I see it progressing a bit at a time here too. It's lower than yours right now but I'm very sick of mostly dirty grey clouds hanging there with pink that can range from pale haze on every horizon to the neon insanely vivid mixtures.

      Today the sky is blue with some normal looking cumulus…only a couple of the grey smirchy (this day rainless) ones. I felt momentarily blessed but it kinda got ruined when I looked at the GMC.
      .17microSv with 32CPM's
      Creeping up averages. Crap!
