I imagine this spider feels a little differently about the fall leaves than I do. A leaf crashing into her house is like the whole tree crashing into mine. She worked for about 1/2 hour to get it out. I watched the whole time, wanting to help, but pretty sure that me pulling the leaf out would have done more damage than just letting her do it. She got it out, did some minor repairs and was back to waiting for more house crashers.
