The surge of spiders swept over the Marshall's house mid june, long after their neighbors had abandoned their homes.

The Marshalls made a moat around their house, then a second moat, of gasoline and polystyrene. The spiders, though, slunk along the electricity and phone lines, when the Marshall's son Mitch fell asleep during his night watch.

We know this, because their daughter, Chastity, was chatting with her mother via computer when the spiders started pelting onto the windows and the roof like a chitinous, poisonous rain.
