Strange Web Shrouds Longview Ranch

A Longview rancher makes a bizarre discovery as what appears to be frost turns out to be something unexpected.  Rancher Bob Griffin came out to feed his cattle earlier this week at his ranch on fm 2087, and saw what appeared to be frost, or snow covering his three acre lake.   It turned out to be massive connected spider web.  Wildlife experts say its an eerie combination of fog and moisture resting on the web that caused it to look white.

The species of spider has not been identified, and since the initial sighting Griffin has not seen the webs again.
