So - the worms that Adam describes below are the ones that all of us doing some form of vermiculture use.  They are in the family of earthworms, redworms called epigeic.  They don't burrow.  I learned this from the worm primer that John sent me and I recommend it.  Laurie

Not all kinds of earthworms make that downward journey to survive winter.
Some kinds of earthworms lay their eggs in cocoons safe in the soil to hatch
when conditions are right. Then they settle under leaf litter on top of the
soil, where winter's cold makes them freeze and die.
