There is a really foul smell at night in the area of South Tryon between Arsley and say, John Price, worst in the area of the Sonic near Westinghouse. What the heck is that smell???? I can't describe the smell, but it really stinks.

Thanks! It might be that Cargill plant. It smells like sour potato chips. It's a ridiculous description, but if they're processing oil, that would make sense.

Yuck.

I also notice some awful smells from along I-77 coming south just past the VA/NC border. There are some chicken farms with big fans in the sides of the chicken barn which blow the smells across the highway. SD

I just drove past there a couple days ago and the stench damn near gagged me. Ew.
