I feel the same way outlawatheart!!! went out for a scout today in carbondale area took some soil temps and for sure will be finding next week. my lowest reading was 47.1 my highest reading was 51.2... soil temps are pretty consistent and trillium are popping up as well as may apples, and trees budding. all signs point for this weekend with the temps we are heading for. I'm sure someone is finding blacks around here but I don't look for them, never really had any luck of finding a good early spot.
