Dear Mickey,
We are wonderfully amused with your playful take on our site’s name.  The insect crawling on the window, terrifying the driver of the vehicle is a harmless, immature Leaf Footed Bug, probably in the genus
Acanthocephela.  Here is a matching image on BugGuide for comparison.  Several species in the genus are found in your area.
