I can't wait predictions

It warmed up to about 60 on Friday and it smelled just like April.

66 days or
1604 hours or
96271 minutes or
5776297 seconds.

Until, I'm finding morels.....

What are your predictions?

Boy what I wouldn't give to see 60 degrees about now! We just barely made it over the freezing mark yesterday for the first time in a LONG time. And now it looks as if we aren't going to see it again for awhile. The birds are eating me out of house and home with these cold temps! I think it may be a little later this spring in this area than it was last year. But with all the snow should be a good moist spring! I'm going to say April 13th.


Just when you think you aren't going to find any morels, something pushes you to climb that next hill. And once you get over that hill, guess what you find? That's right. NOTHING!

60 degree!!!! I'm still setting here at -10. What up with that??

Take time to feel the ground below your feet and stay connected to the Earth. Remember, If you eat the wrong mushroom, you'll be part of the earth, in lieu of connected to the earth. Ted

LOL! 60's seem almost impossible right now! LOL Don't I wish. First morels? Haven't the slightest but I have a whole bunch of new woods to learn so I'll have fun trying!

The best lessons are those learned before you wish you had known better, especially when thinking edible mushrooms.

Not yet Stan, way to soon to be thinking of morels, have at least 2 more months of ice fishing to to.

Morel season will come soon enough.

How is it that one careless match can start a forest fire,but it takes a whole box to start a campfire??

Re: I can't wait predictions

Good to see so many of the same faces here. Just talked to my buddy from MI this yesterday about this springs hunt. I always start dreaming far too early and as the temps warm up they only come more frequently
