Same as always Ted. The Saturday before Mother's Day.

Distant thunder is comforting to the soul.
Medium distant thunder with sound of rain, is even better.

That clap right over your house, as it hits a nearby tree is down right scary, causing you to levitate from bed or chair.

Spring is coming!

I found my first morels after the elm and maple outside my bedroom window was struck by lightning way back in the mid to late 90's. It damaged the maple and of course killed the elm.

I was walking in the yard and thought I was looking at old walnuts... turned out to be morels. That was a fun spring. I didn't find my first wild morels until half a decade later. Now I'm hooked.

It's normally held the day before Mother's Day, which this year would be the 13th.
Yes, the season is coming fast, though a snow storm this weekend will slow things down.
I was in Louisville, KY this past weekend, and noticed daffodils and forsythia were blooming (early) there, and Red Maples were also blooming, which to me means morels are only about a week or 2 away down there. (I also saw someone found a small black morel in Bloomington, IN today.) Spring usually moves north about 100 miles/week, so morels should be here in SW MI some time in early April.

Dinner will be on the 13th this year.
Finally got the forum up for it, and you all can post in it.
