Well, when I finally made it home late last night, my father pointed out something high above the ground, stretched between trees, overhanging the driveway. There were two massive webs with a spider resting gently in the middle of each one. These big, black and brown spiders are what we call Fall spiders here, because they usually do not appear until at least the trees start changing. But they’re early this year. Also of note, is how high their webs were from the ground. So, if nature is correct it looks like it could be an early Autumn followed by a snowy Winter.
