Up the spout - and just about everywhere else

September 20, 2005|By Richard O'Mara

We are deep into the season of spiders.

They are everywhere outside the house; inside, too, where they keep out of sight. Every fall they appear in places where they weren't in summer, when there were more people around - in the tool shed, the outdoor shower, even over beach bicycles left out overnight. They are the most nimble of creatures, as you can see when they scramble over their webs.
