    Have not had the time to go out and look myself. Hope to get out this week.

    Looks like southern ohio is going to get a good rain later today, but will miss Columbus area.

    Yup . . . rain missing Columbus.

    Out into the woods-several spots-yesterday and the ground at consistently producing Chant spots was dry, cracked and 'shroomless . . .
    I'm going to have to do a rain dance, I'm afraid. (well . . .not afraid, just embarassed)

    Here's my date of 1st Chanterelle the last 3 years.

    I don't recall if 2014 was a year I didn't get out earlier in July or just that's the 1st pop.

    . . . oh, yeah, 2014 was the year we had 4 helpless, blind kittens left in our flowerbed June 15th. I probably wasn't in the woods much early July. So, I'm betting on July 7-8 time frame, for me.

    I'll still be in the woods at least 3-4 times before then.

    I always find them in July too, if we get rain. As soon as I see Indian Pipes ( Monotropa uniflora ) I know they are fruiting.

    Well the rain last nite certainly made up for the miss in the afternoon, I see about 5 inches on my gauge. Heck of a rain dance SB
    That will certainly get some shrooms a popping.
