Subject: Huge thing I never wanna see again?!

I just moved to Phoenix, AZ and I am currently house sitting for a friend. The kids and I had been swimming and after I got everyone in the house and dried off I returned to the pool to grab some floats out of it. Floating on top of that water was something that from a distance looked like a small/baby bird. When I got closer I realized it was in fact some kind of huge bug! It eas close in length to the size of my hand outstretched and at least an inch and a half thick in the trunk. Legs were long and thick, even the antennas. It is currently summer here and was about 110 degrees the day I found it.
Please help, I’m grossed out!

It appears to be the end of the end for this Palo Verde Root Borer.
