Precipitation won't be much if a problem unless you're worried about too much. Weather Prediction Center has a large portion of IL in a 3-4"+ category. God part is it will fall over several days, but could see some flash flooding Monday with any severe weather that happens. Regardless, this time next week streams and rivers will be up

I like our chances to get rain today but what the hell do I know. Not many wooded areas near me here in Macon County but some are very dry. Sunny & windy out right now...we better get some rain!

I found 33 very small greys in a spot that I always find morels. they were all near the base of some elm trees and right in the same area. I had to get down on my knees and gently rake away the leaves to find them. The only reason I looked there is because I find them there every year. This was in Shelby county. The greys were around an inch and a half only.

Yeah ive pulled back some cover around one of my normal spots to no avail. But ground seems cool and dry. Hopefully after rain things get better. It was first week of may last year when i was doing my best. Anyone know how long after a rain before you see the affects of that rain?

OPISS, Depends on how hard its raining. If its pouring I see the affects right away. I'm generally soaked in less than a couple of minutes.

Piatt county is still not quite there yet. I looked where I have found them past years. I am just beginning to see violets in the clearings. Usually they are all over when the mushrooms pop. The lilacs haven't blossomed yet & the redbuds are just beginning to blossom. So tired of waiting.

Nice little haul tonight. Need some rain, hopefully this severe squall line coming in will dump a good dose. Doubt it but some were getting wind dried

Admins, can you please change the stupid format if this board to accept img tags. This format makes it incredibly difficult to post pictures. Any other forum I go on it is as simple as either bracketing the img code or hitting an imaging button. This one is not as user friendly.

Apologies to everyone for all the double imaging.

End rant
