The snow is done

27 Feb

The snow storms are done and we are now facing dry weather for the foreseeable future. I hear here and there that we broke records. I did try to detect in the snow one day at the park. It was interesting to see that all the shallow pulltab signals had turned to iron signals since we had close to a foot of snow on the ground. I took that as a huge learning experience!

Now I know for sure that the Deus will report deep signals as iron no matter what they really are. I suppose that this is the case with most detectors. The lesson of course, is to dig every deep signal. Now, the thing I finally came to learn with the Deus that I didn’t learn with the other machines I’ve owned is that even though the Deus reports the signal as iron, the tone is definitely not iron. I don’t remember if this was the case with the White’s V3i or the other detectors.  So many deep, non-ferrous items will display this way on the Deus but it is not fail proof; I detected the oldest, most used part of one of the oldest parks in town and every deep iron signals with a high tone ended up being just that; rusty iron. Nonetheless, I think I have now decided to dig every deep iron signal that comes with a high tone.

It feels like I haven’t detected in a long time. I am itching to go out there. On the other hand, all the school snow days (and my own snow days) gave me and my boys a chance to have a good time out there. We went sledding, had snow-ball fights, and even built a snow man. Good times.



We named him George. Not the most impressive snowman in the world but it was our first ever.

Thank you for looking!

      I put the pic of the snowman up.

      Spring is quickly approaching. There are cool things underground waiting to be found!
