Scream like a little girl!

This is the sight out of the middle window of our office.
Run away! Run away!

Yes, the spider is about as big as that the height of that brick. According to our crack research team here at work, this is a spider of the genus Argiope, known in the U.S. as a Argiope aurantia - Black and Yellow Garden Spider. No worries, she is harmless. Sean sits closest to her and named her Fred.

OMG! I have 3 of those pesky spiders (yes the exact same type) on my front porch that I am trying to get rid of! They are fast and scarey! Eeek!
