February this year has been especially brutal with cold weather, lots of snow and the drifting of said snow. This weather makes it a busy time for us Ring Finders in the northern climates.
It never fails to amaze me how oblivious to cold we are in Canada, we brush the snow off our cars with bare hands, scrape windows with bare hands and even throw snowballs with bare hands. Many times every winter I get calls from folks that have lost rings due to such activity.
Today was no exception, I received a text message from Amanda, her husband had been shoveling the sidewalk in front of his house when he shook his hand to stave off the cold and away went his Gold Wedding Band. She requested I come out and do a search for them, as they had spent a large amount of time searching to no avail.
When I arrived Amanda greeted me and showed me where her husband had been and approximately where he shook his hand. From experience, I deduced that the ring would not be in the snow drift, but somewhere on the road which had about 3-4 cm of packed snow on it.
Seven minutes later Amanda and her husband’s ring were reunited. The ring was in the middle of the road and had been pushed into the packed snow by traffic without damaging the ring. Amanda was thrilled to have the ring back as you can see by the attached photo. Thank you, Amanda, for the generous reward.
