Sofia was successfully reunited with her family heirloom. The ring is priceless to her so the presssure was on! I had anticipated difucult conditions so had brought along a variety of machines and coils. She lost it while shoveling the sidewalk so I knew trash and interference could make it difficult.
Like most lost rings, it wasn’t where she expected it to be. The ring found its way onto a snow bank, nowhere near where she thought and a lot deeper then you would think it could sink in packed snow.
Persistence and preparedness paid off, especially to make Sofia so happy when she saw what she thought was lost forever was really only one beep away.
