Erica lost her ring near her driveway in the snow. Needless to say, December in Minnesota has a LOT of snow and the ring disappeared. They rented a metal detector and had no luck finding it. So, i traveled up to Willmar and searched the area for a couple hours to no avail. It had snowed quite a bit since she had lost it and snow is always moved around by shoveling and snow blowing. I talked it over with Erica and Andrew and told them I would come back and try in the spring. I always tell people, don’t give up hope, I have found quite a few rings on the 2nd and even 3rd try. The 2nd try was the charm in this search, the ring was right where we figured it would be. All i can figure is that the deep snow must have kept it from registering the first time I went up. Anyway, Erica and Andrew now have their engagement ring back were it belongs. Congrats to both of you and hopes for a long and happy marriage together. Take Care!
