Hi Bonnie,
We suspect you live near a body of water.  This is a female Spring Fishfly, Chauliodes rastricornis, and according to BugGuide:  “The antennae of females are serrate (saw-like).  The comb-like, (pectinate) antennae of the males are quite obvious.”  You many compare your individual to this image posted to BugGuide.
