This morning I saw the most amazing site: hundreds of baby earth worms wiggling in a pool of water at the end of my driveway. We just had 2 days of torrential, non-stop rain that saturated the ground and usually sends worms onto the carport, seeking dry ground. I try to save them but they are usually so soggy, just touching them causes them to fall apart.

I'm assuming these baby worms rose to the top of the soil to escape the soaked ground and got washed into the gutter where the water accumulated. I've been trying to scoop up as many as I could and place them in the drying soil.

It just seems so strange that I sorta question my assumptions that these are worms that just got a bad deal from mother nature. I'm I correct?
