Everything's Bigger in Texas...

And, I do mean everything:

If you hate creepy-crawlies, you might want to avoid Lake Tawakoni State Park where a 200-yard stretch along a nature trail has been blanketed by a sprawling spider web that has engulfed seven large trees, dozens of bushes and even the weedy ground.

But if you hate mosquitoes, you might just love this bizarre web.

"At first, it was so white it looked like fairyland," said park superintendent Donna Garde. "Now it's filled with so many mosquitoes that it's turned a little brown. There are times you can literally hear the screech of millions of mosquitoes caught in those webs."

Dear Lord, that's creepy. I'm headed to Texas this weekend for the Townhall.com Texas Presidential Straw Poll at the Texas GOP Convention, so I think I'll watch out for spiders.
