Morel mushrooms

Mushroom season has been a bit of a bust for us this year. We have had warm and dry weather followed by cool and wet which hasn't helped. We have gone hunting the past two weekends without a single sighting. In following facebook posts and talking to others at work, it seems that people are finding them in fair quantity or, like us, not at all.
I have heard two tips for knowing when the mushrooms will be ready. One is when the lilacs bloom and the other is when the redbud trees bloom. Both of these signs have come and gone here in central IL, so we might be waiting until next year...
