I hate spiders!

I used to tell myself well at least you don't live where there are tarentulas but moved here in November of 2009 and soon found out the spiders here are huge and they also love to come out during Winter (YES i mean OUTSIDE IN THE SNOW)! I saw two that were so big that were the size of a tarentula (1 outside...saw that 1 when walking from severel feet away crossing the street at first i tought it was a rat then i realised it was a spider...1 inside that ran away and was never found that darn thing was looking straight at me with the legs ready to jump)! And the spiders here are hard to kill, you crush them for a minute then rise the thing you used and they jump up or start running!
