Indeed, one of the skunks is on my back porch right now, gobbling up the scraps of the food the ferals didn't finish tonight. If the beasts are in a spraying mood I don't want to go out there until they are gone. The smell is still quite strong, even in the house, and I don't need more. As much as I like the transient smell of skunk from a distance, up close and for an extended time it is just horrendous. I hope a breeze comes up and blows it away soon.
In the meantime I'm wishing I had closed the windows. It's too late now. The smell would just get trapped in the house. But it's not as strong in the living room. I guess I'll have to let the computer nap while I go watch television. But there's not much on tonight. There's still a beg-a-thon on the local PBS channels, so no English murders.
Maybe I can go outside after all, if it stops stinking out there before it does in here.
