I live in Rochester NY. Today is May 24th. I opened my non-attached garage today at 3:30pm and found this less than 2 feet away from me. It didn't startle or move at all. I tried to move it with a stick to see what would happen and it just inched its way around the 2x4 piece of wood. I'm just super curious as to what this spider is. I kind of wish I wouldn't have seen it. Now I'm freaked out what else might be hiding in my garage.
