I wish you could have included a quarter for scale. Unfortunately I don't have an intimate knowledge of the size of your carpet fibers. So to speak.

So... If you need my shoe, I think I'm done with it for the winter...

Luckily, the spider was dead. Lisa, I am astonished at your suggestion. Even though the spider was dead, I still stood about four feet away and used the camera zoom to make it appear I was closer to the spider. There is no way i would have gotten my hand next to the spider to set down a quarter. Suffice it to say, the spider (legs included) was about the size of a quarter. I have big carpet fibers. My vacuum luckily cleaned up the spider.

So is it just me or do the spiders get bigger every year. Im glad I am not the only one who is dealing with mutant spiders.

Marci, we basement-dwellers must band together.
