NEWFANE - “I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s one of the worst things you could ever do, from a personal comfort standpoint, but I did it.”
These words were delivered by Eric Durocher, of Newfane, when telling The Deerfield Valley News about a cleanup he did at his home this month. A cleanup he likened to a horror movie. What was he cleaning? Worms. Jumping worms. And lots of them. He estimates he cleaned 6,000 off of his property, by hand, over a 24-hour period. And as if that wasn’t horrific enough, what happened next was perhaps even worse.
