I also went out in the downpowr to check some spots. Got out alittle late so went to my favorite spot first. They were everywhere. I seen hundreds of morels just poking up through the leaf cover. I barely even walked into the woods. I didn't pick one and just backed off so I wasn't stepping on them. I'll go back today or tomorrow. I am very close to you 6.5, so your spots should be in full swing very soon too. That rain was just what we needed.
