Ditto here Shroomhntr. Take a look at the extended forecast and pay attention to soil temps. The forecasted temps starting tomorrow show 13 of the next 14 days in the 50's and 60's with good amounts of precip. If they aren't up by next week in OH/WV, by Good Friday we should have blacks up. There were a good amount of finds in WV here locally the first and second week of march last year, although it was hot last March. I'm in no hurry though, I want a normal end of March early April start with good precip.
