Well the deadliest spider,being the black widow has an hourglass looking red spot on it's back. Besides that I wouldn't have a clue.
we have whitetails.. they bite but not sure they have them over there. they're known for the white dot on their tails and don't have a web.
the most poisonous is the daddylonglegs.. but can't penetrate our skin.
try this.. http://www.termite.com/spider-identification.html
Spider Identification - the body of an adult black widow is about 1/2 inch long. The female black widow is normally shiny black, with a red hourglass marking on the underside of the abdomen. The marking may range in color from yellowish orange to red and its shape may range from an hourglass to a dot.
Do a Google image search for the brown recluse spider, or fiddleback. As you can see from the non-spider images that turn up, they are quite poisonous and live in secluded corners of homes throughout North America. That's the only thing I can think of from your description, and it's the only common poisonous spider aside from the black widow in the US. Other than that...maybe a cat face? They're harmless to humans, and excellent for catching household pest bugs.

The heat does not bother me as I can handle hundred plus degree weather, but what I hate about this time of year is the beginning of fire season. With hot and dry weather the winds can cause sparks in the brush, and now there are several fires in the surrounding areas. It was so smokey...

Why are tickets always sold out for Jeff Dunham in Southern California?Why does it seem that some of the entertainment events, particularly in Southern California, are always sold out before tickets go on sale? Is there a waiting list for these tickets that people don't know about?
