The one that I picked today was about an inch and a half tall but yesterday afternoon it around 3 there was nothing in that spot so I figured probably an inch and a half or better a day

That sounds about right. A couple years ago I found a "bigfoot" morel late in the season that was about 4.5" tall. But there was something different about it. It seemed to glow golden down in that green grass, and when I touched my fingertips to it it felt so cool and fresh and moist! I decided to leave it to see what would happen. I went back 3 days later and it had doubled in size to 9"! It's the morel on the right in my avatar. A little buddy had sprouted right next to it, which is the one in the center. Close to 5".

Up here at Shasta Lake, CA we got almost 3 inches in two days but, unfortunately, the temp plummeted and we got snow down to 2000 ft. Just north of here at Mt. Shasta they got dang near 20 inches of snow! I guess that shoots our "early season" hopes in the foot! It seems we either get warm temps but no rain or rain/snow but no warmth! (Not that I'm complaining, but y'all back east got me pumped up and ready!)They say patience is a virtue.....so I'm a waiting............

I'm feelin' your pain parshooter! Guess I'll try doing the 'Mushroom Dance' and see if it helps! Good luck to you when it finally starts!
