Back to the Christmas Eve site, working the area where I got a couple of coppers, and it started snowing pretty hard. It was only supposed to be a snow shower, so I stuck it out. I don’t think I’ve ever detected in heavy snow before. One thing detecting in the snow allows you to do is to see how good your grid really is, and see if you are missing spots.
I got a rosie fairly quickly, and the snow stopped after about a half hour, leaving a dusting, but it was too damn cold, so I finished up that zone, and went home. Total time was about 2.5 hours. Add that to Tuesday’s 3 hours, and last week’s 4 hours, and we are now at 10.5 hours on the new battery with full bars, and no recharge. Will be curious to see if I get 30 hours, like many claim.
