Rain posture in yellow garden spider

I watched this yellow garden spider (Argiope aurantia) for a couple weeks. During several heavy rains, it would let go of its web with its front legs, but continue to hold with its hind legs. It was hanging perpendicular to the ground. On my blog, I have written more about this yellow garden spider's rain behavior.
