This looks like a peaceful farmhouse. It looks like a nearby field is softly draped in fog or snow. But the truth is actually terrifying: these lands have been completely taken over by millions and millions of spiders. And the truth is: The trees will eventually die if the paintings are too thick.
Terrible flooding in November 2013 throughout Australia has caused more than 13,000 people to evacuate their homes. Unfortunately, people weren’t the only ones evacuating. Spiders are also running for the hills, causing farmlands to be literally covered in their webs.
It looks like snow, but it’s the worst thing you could ever imagine.Each cluster of webbing is literally filled to the brim with tiny flood victims. And it’s hard to go anywhere without getting a face-full of spider.
Once the flooding along the riverbanks goes down, the spiders should return home. But who knows: farmers will maybe have to start buying flamethrowers in bulk to burn down their barns before moving to New Zealand. [The Weather Channel]
