A wormy issue

You know how my back porch is covered? And carpeted?
Yes, outdoor carpet.  Not my favorite but it was nice when the girls lived here and were crawling around out there.
My long term goal is tile out there I think.  But it won't happen anytime soon.

Well, anyway, lately we've had a lot of rain.
A lot of rain.
And, as you probably know, when it rains a lot, the worms try to escape the flood and come onto the land.
I have been known to rescue worms that are on my sidewalk drying out.
Well, my carpeted porch is now COVERED in desiccated worms.
I didn't know they were there and didn't save them and they died on my carpet.
And then dried out.

I didn't take a picture because, frankly, it is nasty.
Some of them are kind of stuck to the carpet.
I might go out and try to vacuum tonight sometime...
but I've had a monstrous headache all day and I'm having trouble doing anything.

My goal is to make the porch worm-less by the end of the week.
Yes, I have big expectations for myself!
