Okay, admittedly, this post is going to be a little gross. But, it is vital information about the neighborhood! The first time I witnessed this phenomenon I was freaked out. After a rain, our streets are COVERED with the BIGGEST worms I have ever seen in my life! As a newcomer, the first time I ventured out in the morning dark for my run (post rain), I noticed that I kept having a squishing sensation every step or so. As daylight came, I saw what had caused the squishing! So, take note: tread carefully after the rain!
That is my big ole 8 1/2 shoe on the left!
