Same here, man. I agree. I've got a little snow left as well, but I'm goin' down to Florida for the week starting tomorrow. Unfortunately the family is keeping me from getting to the mountains, but I should enjoy some fishing. Also, it should keep my mind off of ginseng while I wait for it to warm up! Hopefully in a few weeks I can begin the Spring scouting.
I really do think spring will be much later this year. I had -2 degrees yesterday morning and a cold 15 degrees this morning.
Long term forecast is 5 degrees below normal temperatures for the rest of March and April.
We still can't get the dang snow melted here in northern PA. We are tapping the maple trees and in some parts of the woods the snow is still above the knee. That makes for some difficult time collecting maple sap.
Did a quick pass through my patches this morning. No ginseng up yet that I saw, but it looks like the Mayapple is doing quite well. Lots of little green umbrellas poking up all over.
The forecast says a chance of snow this Saturday. Upper seventies the next two days then possible snow. Ahhh, spring in Dixie.
