Another snow day :'( but we did miss the big storm that NYC had. :)` Looks like the rest of January is going to be a wash.  Hope there is a warm spell in February  ::).  I didn't hunt at all then so one day would be a blessing O0

The damp earth is more conductive than dry soil, allowing more objects to register on a detector. Even a popular area often visited by metal detecting enthusiasts can reveal new buried treasures and finds after a heavy rain, so wait for the drops to subside and head out early. Also, during spring thaw, the ground shifts from being frozen solid in the cold winter months. Objects that were once buried too deeply to make a beep on a detector may rise, allowing them to be discovered.  I have had good luck with the wet ground finding coins deeper and more of them.
