Default Is it called an addiction or love of the sport

I hired a guy with a tractor to clear snow out of half of the back yard so I could swing the detector. Snow isnít melting fast enough still 4 feet deep.

......maybe if you also get a jackhammer to dig into the frozen ground then it might be an addiction

Gonna kill your grass. The snow insulates from the freezing temps... I love the dead zones in the parks and elementary schools every year, from people rolling up big snowmen (leaves tracts of grass showing, which are then freeze killed). You'll have a nice tractor drawn up brown spot in your yard.

With plugs in it. LOL

Try getting out and detecting the tubing hills' snow!
