The Web They Weave - only follow links if you don't mind critters

All the rains in Texas may be creating a tropical rain forest. The New York Times reports today about a giant spider web growing 50 miles from Dallas. Scientists think that with all the rains there are more mosquito's, flies and other grossness for spiders to enjoy. More food + more spiders = more webs.

Imagine the size of the "palmetto bugs" (aka cockroaches) that would be in our house this year if we still lived in Houston.
