Nightcrawlers DO NOT like chlorine.

Dad and I are putting the pool away for winter.  Yeah, it seems crazy with all this hot weather, but we hardly ever use it after Mom goes back to school.

Anyways, we’re draining water out of the pool out onto the lawn.  I was standing there watching it all, and I noticed a nightcrawler on the ground.  And another. And 10 more of his closest relatives.  The water is driving them right up out of the ground!  I went to get a can to start collecting (as Dad and I really need to go fishing), but he stopped me.  Its not the water driving them out, its the chlorine.  And apparently it messes them all up, so they arent worth grabbing 🙁  Oh well.
