That is one big spider. That would give me bad dreams. We have some similar spiders with wicked-looking striped webs around our house. They have become quite populous the last couple years, but I can't complain too much, since they replaced the hairy brown spiders that used to come in the house (these ones don't) and they help keep down the mosquito population.
Yes, hairy brown spiders that come in the house would be most unwelcome!
Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
