I got a call last night from Joel.
He had lost his platinum wedding ring while brushing snow off his truck.
Joel lives on a farm about 1+ hour away from Edmonton.
He used a tiger torch to melt snow while searching for the ring but was not successful.
I agreed to leave the city about 8AM this morning and drive to his residence to see what we could find.
I did discuss the social distancing we should keep and no shaking hands etc.
Temperature was -17Celcius (1.4Farenheit) with a windchill of -26 Celcius (-15Farenheit) as there was a brisk wind.
I started to search where Joel had described where he lost his ring.
After a few swings of the metal detector I got a strong signal, moved some snow and with the pin finder was able to locate the ring.
I set the ring on the toneau cover of my truck and backed off so Joel could look and identify – It was the ring we were looking for!
Joel wanted to shake my hand but due to the circumstances I gladly excepted a thank you.
I was super happy to see the smile on his face – I am sure his day was a lot brighter as was mine in these tough days of the pandemic.
All in all a good day.
