4.11 Total blank

It's been a rainy day today. The crocuses never opened up at all, just kept their little buds tightly closed. The world was covered with earthworms this morning. It was difficult to walk anywhere outside without stepping on them. The weirdest thing was realizing that about 20 of them had crawled up the garage door - the highest of them was about six feet up. How do they hang on to the side like that? Do they hang on to tiny irregularities in the door surface with their little rings, or does the mucus they secrete glue to them to the door? And why does any earthworm want to climb a door anyway?
