    Will It Ever Rain?

    Bought a new Nox 800 and was pumped up to try it out. Grabbed my shovel and walked across the road the the cow pasture. Got a "20" signal and tried to dig. Ugh! The dirt was like concrete. Impossible for my crippled old body to dig. Headed to a bean field that was just cut and it was the same. Rats! I then went to the creek thinking I could dig in the bed. Water is dried up and the rocks at the bottom of the creek are again like concrete. My new detector sure looks nice. Wonder if it works? No real rain here since June. None in the forecast. What's a guy to do? Gary

    Sorry about your rain situation and hope it improves.
    We've been just the opposite with soggy mud for a yard and standing water in the front swale for about two month's now. This is our rainy season, but not usually to this extent.

    We've had plenty of rain this year. The pull tabs are easy diggin'. Big wet system moving through the NW. Maybe you'll get some soon.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Having farmed for years it's comforting to know that detectorists and farmers like the same amount of rain. Enough to make the soil loose but not so much it makes mud....Oh, and if it could only fall when I am sleeping that would be great too.

    We get alot of rain in MI usually barreling in from the west and sometimes south, while most of the state has been very wet even rain doesn't seem to like the Detroit area and usually breaks up before it reaches my area.
    Perhaps big cities can have an effect on weather like that I don't know, but I do know to the north and south there has been plenty of rain, only sprinkles and an occasional downpour here.

    This time of year I try to concentrate on beaches and tot lots, both a bit depleted from the kung flu, haven't been digging in the dirt for a while.

    Well, here in central Minnesota we are buried under snow. Tomorrow I have to break out the large snowblower - the earliest by at least a month I have ever had to use it.
