Last night, while hot-tubbing, we had some tense moments after the girl got a spider bite. We didn't see the spider (it was dark, and she flung it a long way), but it was nasty enough that it seems very reasonable to assume it was a black widow, both because we have those here at times, and because the symptoms were a pretty good match.

Have I given thanks for Google lately? There was a time when finding out the symptoms of a black widow bite would require calling a bunch of people I knew and hoping one of them remembered...

Luckily the girl is feeling much better this morning, and the worse symptoms didn't manifest, so it looks like we're out of the woods.

On a completely unrelated note, a comic about SF.
