  1. We must get the wife home for visits now and then, and I still have a number of family members there, DC is above their means.

    • Arrgghh! that’s a tough situation, Altimometer. I certainly sympathize.

      If you are partial to cold weather North of the 60th Parellel enjoys lower Rad year round, except when it doesn’t, of course. You can’t eat the fish, naturally, kinda expensive, too.


    • Pretty much par for the course, Advanced Eco. Their Normalacy Preference takes over and their conscious, logical side shuts down. Keep at it, though, Zombies are not good friends.

    • After the political budget cuts, there is one publicaly reporting Rad Detector left in Honolulu. The readings read like a piece of 1950’s propaganda Fiction. The High Rad reading this week was 278 G & B Combined. I mark it as “Tampered With, Not Reliable.”

  2. Hi Bob, greetings from the radioactive capitol of the South. It’s nearly “HOT” enough to fry a plantain in the peel without a pan and for the coconuts to explode in the trees.

    • Hi there, … The Albuquerque Radiation measuring unit’s public reporting function was switched Off from May 30, 2015 till Jan 6, 2016. or 8 months and 21 days.

      This week’s Combined High Rad reading of 956 CPM was not high enough to make the 1000 CPM cut.

      I suspect political intervention in the operation of the unit. That’s my opinion.
