I'm the type of person to catch a spider and release it outside if I find it in my house...I won't lie, they do make me uneasy. I know that this is an older article but someone at work showed it to me today and I just had to share it. I think I would have to move if that many spiders lived in my neighborhood!

I'm exactly the same. Now I have seen that article I know who to blame when I get nightmares ;)

I hadn't seen that, Enzo. That's pretty amazing. The spiders were just intent on surviving, as are we all when danger is at hand. The clear-up after the floods could be tricky, though...

It's really beautiful, reminiscent of those ground hugging mists we often get here in UK in the late summer, during the season of "Mists and mellow fruitfulness".

But that is a heck of a lot of spiders....

That's an important point LPC makes....what about the after-flood clear-up? After the spiders have worked so hard to survive and escape the flood waters, I hope someone will be able to remove them humanely?

Something strangely ethereal about those cobwebs.


Why do people so dislike spiders?! All God's creatures.... There is beauty and wonder in everything.
