I received an email last night from a young lady I will call, Nikki. Nikki was cleaning the snow off of her car when she noticed that her keys had fallen out of her pocket. We had just gotten nearly a foot of newly fallen snow and while Nikki searched through the snow with her hands and a rake she was unable to locate her keys. I emailed Nikki a reply and told her that I would be out to her home in the morning and see if I could find her keys.
I arrived at Nikki’s house this morning and began my search, which was hampered by all of the rebar in her concrete driveway along with very uneven snow piled around her car. I lowered my sensitivity quite a bit on my detector and I leveled off the snow with a shovel immediately around all sides of Nikki’s car. The leveling off of the snow actually took longer than finding her keys as I would scan each shovel full of snow in the event that I had scooped up her keys. Once I had a nice evened out surface of snow I found Nikki’s keys in hard packed snow on the drivers side of her car. Nikki was at work so I delivered her keys to her at her office. As expected, Nikki was happy to get her keys back in her possession.
