Spiders

One thing I've noticed about Washington is that it seems to have more than its fair share of spiders. Now, I don't mind spiders, but I do dislike spiderwebs—mainly when they get on me when I'm Segwaying to work. It seems that the spiders around here are very active at night and set up webs that cross all of my favorite sidewalks in a valiant but vain effort to catch themselves a human-sized prey. I hit one today that was so thick that it actually stung my face when I ran into it, and I still hadn't managed to pull it from my face by the time I arrived at my office.

Yes, the spiders out here are very industrious. I have seen full webs set up on my car overnight. I'm glad to see them, since it means not nearly as many insects around, I'm with you - I hate getting their webs on me.
