I lost my glasses in the snow. Any tips/tricks on how to find them?

In a freak accident early this morning, my glasses were flung from my face into 8"+ of fresh fluffy snow. I spent a little bit of time digging around trying to find them, but it was limited because I had to get to work. The snow is still falling, and I think we are supposed to get about another 2-3" by the time I am able to get home (where the glasses are, somewhere). I don't have a metal detector available, and this happened on a public street. The glasses are also fairly small and non-descript thin metal frames that are black on the top and silver on the bottom.
When I get home, I am planning on going to the general vicinity with a rake and hoping I can grab them that way. What other options can I try?

As to how this happened -- I was cleaning the snow off of my car when I brushed the antenna with my arm, causing it to spring back, hit me in the face, and somehow hook under my glasses and throw them. They really could have gone anywhere, including underneath the car or somewhere else on the street. I do have contacts, so I'm able to get by without them, and as long as they aren't stepped on or driven over they should be OK.
