It was the stink smelled 'round the Valley, and parts of L.A., Ventura County and Riverside, an icky-dead-fishy-what-the-#$%!! kind of odor. The SJG picked it up on my highly-trained stinkomator. Did you get a whiff? At first, I assumed it was a sewer situation. But it's worse than than, bleeps. Much worse! It just might come from the sea. The Salton Sea. (Where is that, btw?) It's far, that much I do know. Like 160 miles from SJG headquarters. In the morning, the stench was strong. By mid-day, it lifted. By late afternoon, I was eyeing the dog. "Really, Dusty? Gas-X, dude? Sheesh!" But the mystery of the bad smell remains unsolved. The air quality folks aren't really sure what's causing the stinkification, but if it does come from the sea, can a giant monster of the deadly variety be far behind? My advice to y'all, just in case: Start running! And don't look back. This thing could get biblical.
