Around here, especially in and around my apartment building, there are a lot of spiders. Not just tiny little spiders, but big spiders too. And they make quite large webs, quickly. If you get home at 10 pm and park your car in the lot, by 8 am the next morning, a spider has often made a web connecting your car to the car next to it, I’ve been told. Impressive. They also have managed to make a very large web outside of my building, connecting the second floor of my building to the electrical pole and wires a few meters away. And this web has outlasted several violent rainstorms.
