There was a piece in todays editorial section today about a bad smell on the north east side of town. The writer wasn't specific about what part of the NE side they live on but they said that it started about 5 pm and lasted a couple of hours. Has anybody else experienced this bad odor or have any clue what it might be? After this appeared in the paper some TV news crew will probably do a story on it.

Probably a meth lab. Was it like cooked cat urine?

Has anyone smelled the smoke in the air from the wildfires in north Texas.

Earlier it was pretty thick around where I live, it's seemed to have blow away by now.

Yes.
I live in the Medical Center and it was very strong and smoky around noon, I was sure something was on fire nearby!

pieceofjess! That just explained the burning smell everyone in my office noticed around noon time. I work in the medical center, so I'll bet that's what we noticed.

Depending on where on the NE side they were referring to, it could be from a composting place that is on I-10 near 1604 on the far NE side. The smell can travel for miles depending on the winds and it is pretty foul.

Don't know about smell #1....but hopefully the forecast of rain might help with the Texas wildfires. The smog that has settled in on the city is killing us! We could see it clearly the other morning on the upper level of the overpass from 410 to I-10. It looked like DALLAS on a normal day! Brown ground level fog....ick!

We haven't heard of warnings to asthma patients or others with respiratory problems. There should be based on what we're experiencing!

It smelled more like cooked dog milk with a little bit sugar
