Unforeseen Cirucmstances

Today’s post has been indefinitely delayed because I found this in my house this morning!

That's a 10in diameter glass bowl btw.

I must make sure this isn’t a sign of the impending apocalypse and is just a hazard of living where I do. Needless to say this has derailed my plans for the day.

Brownie points to anyone who can id this…thing. (PS, I had to call the county extension office for help with that.)

Until next week!

Gagh!! Not what you want to find in the morning! What is it??

Actually, given that it's almost Passover - my immediate thought was not the Apocalypse, but rather that the 10 plagues have begun!

Blech! Is that a scorpion?

It's something called a "whip scorpion" because the tail isn't a true scorpion's tail with a sticker. Not poisonous, thank god, but still...in my house!

Wow. I was going to say scorpion because of the massive pincers. That, or tiny land lobster.

Yikers.

Eeeek! It likes like something from a Star Trek episode I once saw only slightly smaller, LoL. I don't mind bugs if they're outside because that's where they're supposed to be. But bugs freak me out in the house! I don't know what I'd do if I saw that thing in my house. The worst thing I deal with is house centipedes but that's nothing compared to that thing. Yeesh!

Besides knowing that it's a scorpion and a harbinger of death, I have no idea. I hope you start tucking your pants into your socks. Just in case.

Oh my gosh, I think I'd flip a switch if I saw that in my house. What did you end up doing with it?

Woweee, that is one scary looking bug.
