When you posted this yesterday I was just leaving an old activity site that was later turned into a park where Oregon Gregg and I had no snow, no frost or frozen ground, ample sunshine and it was about 53° and mostly sunny. No 'quantity' of coins as we were not Coin Hunting the grassy park or play areas. Instead we were off in the outer fringe section were we have found older cons in the past few years. I snagged a '44s Wheat-Back 1¢ and Gregg also got a '44 1¢ and a '46 Silver Roosevelt 10¢.

It's below freezing now with a wind chill dropping that cold feeling about 5° and our forecast high for the rest of the week are above seasonal, with lows of 27° to 31° and highs of about 40° to 43° ... but it's likely to be wet with rain starting Monday and rain/snow possible next Friday. So, like you, we took advantage of the surprising hint of a spring to come that we enjoyed yesterday.

Glad to hear others can get out detecting, and really glad to see the forecast for the locations of our end-of-April WTHO here in Oregon are not as cold as normal, either. They are going to have a rain or rain and snow mix during this coming week as well and I hope this all means we are due for an early and pleasant spring detecting season to arrive.

I trust you'll get a break from this cold snap over there in Michigan soon as well.

Again, congrats on having an early January opportunity to get out and enjoy.
