Snakes on a Plane? Nah... how about Spiders in a Garage?

This post is so off topic, but I just had to share. I found this lovely creature hanging out in front of the garage door this morning:

This sucker is between 2 and 3 inches long, large enough that the detail on its body is very clear. It's web, which didn't show up in the picture, was at least 2 feet around. You can see a thick part of web right behind it. This was the exact same spider that was hanging out on our basement wall several weeks back. I am glad to see that it moved it's home to the outside world.

Does anyone have an idea what type of spider it is?

UPDATE: The DH has corrected me. This spider is not the same spider in our basement. And he thought this blog title entry was lame. This is coming from the man who is throwing the dumbest jokes around continuously. Hmph!

OK. This is a scary spider. It gives me the heebie - jeebies just looking at the picture.

Hmmm - looks like a scary spider to me! Pretty colors, but scary.
