"And along came a ...."

Found this on the oil tank in the basement yesterday! I think this is the biggest spider I have ever seen indoors. So what is it?
I captured it in a jar and put it outside.

Note to non-Americans - that tape measure is in INCHES, not CM. One inch is 2.54 cm, so the spider is about 2.5 times larger than you first thought! I hope the spider likes its new home under the giant log in the garden.

maybe you can help us to ID it, or at least to the family? I can't figure out how to key it out with Is there a list of photos to compare with?
