It's been raining on Mackinac Island for the past four days. We've had light rain, heavy downpours, and rains that have lasted all day and all night.
This morning I rode to work in a light rain; more than a sprinkle but not much. As I rode I noticed what looked like small twigs all over the road. Lots and lots of little twigs. It must have rained pretty hard, I thought. But then I looked closer. They weren't twigs.
My entire one mile bike ride to work was like that - worms everywhere: long ones, short ones, skinny ones, fat ones, and squished ones - lots and lots of squished ones. And riding around them wasn't really an option.
By the time I left school at about 4:00, they were gone. We must have some of the best fed birds in the entire state of Michigan...
