It’s been an amazing year for spiders too. Again, the lack of rain has probably helped them keep their webs intact. I got into my car one morning after it was parked under some maples and didn’t notice anything amiss. As I backed around into the sun, I saw this little guy (gal?) scrambling to wrap up its web.
I knew darn well that wasn’t going to happen before I got down my driveway and out onto the street so I drove as gently as I could. Needless to say, it rolled or blew into my windshield wiper well so it was protected from the wind. I looked for it when I arrived at work but didn’t see it.
Perhaps when I come out of work–where I also park under maples–it and its web will be gone.
