More at 11.

Seriously with these threads?
Mine smells like sagebrush, juniper, and exhaust most of the time, but today it smells like gun powder and mineral spirit.
I'm sure I could find some rank spots somewhere here though...

Toledo was pretty bad when I went through there a couple years back.

Kingsport, TN has a chemical plant and paper mill. Pretty awful at times. Any rural area with a high concentration of hog farms/lagoons will smell.

There hasn't been a milling industry in Minneapolis since the 1960s; virtually all of the grain elevators still standing were shut down and abandoned decades ago. Not sure what you were smelling?

An old thread, and some good news for Tacoma, WA which was mentioned a decade ago as smelly. The pulp mill is gone and the old "aroma of Tacoma" is gone! I'm not sure current residents of the City of Destiny realize it, but their noses are in much better shape than a couple of decades ago!
