November 5

So yesterday on the way home from work I see a dead skunk laying in the road. Naturally I straddle it. As I do I start to smell it.

It had obviously just been hit. I mean really recently. The smell was so strong I could actually taste it and I was chewing mint gum at the time.

So I proceed to go home and go in the house at approx 4:50. I had a million and one things to do before I had to leave again at 6:30.

At 6:30 the boyz head out to the car. I follow shortly behind them. As I get into the car the boyz ask me why the car smells like skunk.

Almost 2 hours later and the smell was still in the car. That was one string skunk!

I haven't hit any but see a lot of dead ones on the road I travel to work.

That makes me wrinkle up my nose just thinking about it. Hope the smell is gone soon!

Nice description of the smell. I can almost smell it from your post. :)

This has been the skunkiest year I can remember. Can't wait until they start napping for the winter.

I am convinced the skunks have found something new to eat this year that has made them more, well, smelly than usual. It just seems to linger!
