Trying to see if I have local people from Ross county on here.
Trying to plan out my first trip to find some morels. I don't know if the temps have been quite warm enough yet. Have been getting the rain just need more heat I think.

Chillicothe here. I'll be out Saturday and Sunday looking around. I've seen reports of some small blacks in the area, so we're not far away.

I'm of the belief that there's no such time as "too early," but there is definitely a "too late." I've already gone out once this week to check my normal spots. I wasn't expecting anything, it was mostly a recon mission. This weekend, however, I expect to at least find a few.

Yeah I plan on making a trip sometime towards end of the weekend / beginning of the week. I hope all this rain will benefit us.

I just posted on another topic page that you posted in londonderrian, lol. I myself and like a mile away from Londonderry. I haven't started looking just yet. I was letting all the rain get soaked up before looking. I think I may try a small quick look in a spot I have and see if anything is up and hopefully no one else has picked if there is any there in that area. May need another week or two and then I will hit it hard once there is like 2 weeks left in April. I've heard of local state parks that are claimed to be good so I'll try em all out and hope.

I'm getting very impatient. Lol. Getting rain here and there. Temps are trying to stay warmer. I hope it helps soon. I'd like to look tomorrow but I don't think they are ready. Don't wanna waste the gas and come up empty handed LoL.

None here at my place in VC ground in woods is still too cold. I think vegetation is just starting to grow and last year when I had found them going good it was already started growing pretty good. Hopefully temps on Tuesday doesn't kill them off.

Tuesdays weather scares me. Def could hurt the shrooms. Something I do not like. I'd say things may be a week away at least. I was hoping the warmer weather of today would kick start stuff.

Im not to thrilled about the temps dipping into the mid 20's, but most everything is still under cover, so any damage should be minimal
Better now than in another week or so
