December 29, 2016
8:30 am EST INT Southwest Michigan 1st floor room FRESH SNOW SAMPLE: 55.7 CPM^ or 36.9% above background This Lake-effect snow was not impacted by radon progeny as it was generated in the waters of Lake Michigan to the west of the sampling site location. That suggests the possibility that the lake water may have been the source. The Palisades Nuclear Generating Station sits about 40 miles west of the testing site and has a history of problems though it was recently announced it would be shuttered in 2018, much to the relief of many Michiganders. By going offline, the plant will no longer be in danger of meltdown due to accident, disaster or terrorism but its spent fuel pools will have to be maintained for decades. Then there’s the questions surrounding leaks of radiation into the lake itself getting into Lake-effect snow.
