    There is nothing different. I went out a couple evenings ago in some rain that turned into snow. Covered my display screen with a sandwich bag and wrapped my battery box with a plastic bag. Machine still works fine and got a couple keepers that hunt too!

    Snow on the ground makes it really easy to see where your coil has swept. Gridding is much easier to accomplish.

    A couple inches isn't bad... but,

    1. your knee's and gloves will get wet fast
    2. all surface junk, that you would normally see and skip over, will be beeping and making you look
    3. the snow will stick to your coil, and will get heavy fast
    4. if working a slope or hill, you will slip on you ass
    5. if you find something good --it will be a good day........ if you don't find anything good -- it Sucks... LOL

    Cabin fever is what drew me to Treasurenet back in the winter of 2013.

    It's a great time to hunt a local outdoor flea market. You just need a long flat head screwdriver to pry the coins from the gravel. The only issue with snow detecting is the depth of the snow. For every inch of snow on the ground reduces depth in the soil. Another area to detect would be local popular sledding hills for recent pocket spills.

    Good Luck

    I take this time to work on displays and research.

    Even though in the South we don't have as much snow as the Northen states its still been colder this year. The cold days with 15 to 20 MPH winds is not my kind of day to MD. Even with headphones on its hard to hear the signal.We have better weather coming so I'm just doing little woodworking jobs in my shop. Did get one new CW 82acre permission at of all places, the library the other day while looking for some old maps.Looking forward to hitting it. Good look to all.

    While snow isn't an issue in NM, the lack of moisture creates some problems this time of the year. We've had less than an 1" of rain in 3 1/2 month, so the ground is like concrete and it does limit where a guy can go, it's almost 70 and sunny here already, that's the upside of the desert.

    Hi E,
    Got the same problem here in Canada, for me snow is ok at about 1 inch deep and without a prolonged freeze, but right now its been a month of really cold weather and my back yard is as hard as concrete I use that as a yard stick for any possible outing...
    I have sent my brother -in - law some drawings for display cases and he will make them for me and I will get the old finds out clean some and arrange them in the cases, kills a lot of time....

    Tell me about a lack of moisture buddy. Here in the south in places it's been dry with no burn warnings in a lot of places. And as I've noticed a lack of depth with my machine even though you ground balance as well as possible. But it's been some better lately. Good luck
