Where the Cobs Live

If spiderwebs are made by spiders, then certainly cobwebs must be made by cobs, right? Haven't you always wondered how those cobwebs formed at the top of the window frames when you've never seen a spider any where in the vicinity?

Naturally, we must check to see what the the internet says about cobwebs.

Anyway, I found where they live at our house when I unloosened two painted screws over the air intake vents under the furnace.

Scary, huh?

I actually had a reason for doing this. I mean, who wants or needs to go looking for yet more dust in one's house? My reason had to do with the on-going process of getting a new water heater. The old one is still dripping, but not spewing, so I just had to see if I could tell where the drips were going.

You know, my kids were asking me about cobwebs just the other day.

There's no need to ask why...I prefer to think that we have ongoing displays of nature at work in the effort to keep the scientific world ever in front of the eyes of curious children.

In other words, I don't want my kids to be afraid of science.
