My wife and I have both complained recently of waking up to a skunk smell in our house. I live in San Francisco where there are skunks aplenty. Skunks are nocturnal, so I never see them around the house.
I know that skunks have an odor like their spray. To me, the smell is more the animal's usual odor and not a recent spray (say, against our house).
But, our house is on a cement slab and there are no ways under as far as I know. Thus, I don't think the skunks are actually living under our house.
This morning, I smelled the same odor outside, briefly.
Does anyone have any ideas where this smell might be coming from? It doesn't permeate the house but both my wife and I noticed it in the upstairs hall (2 stories above the ground and inside the house). There is an open window in the bathroom that connects to the hall but the skunk smell isn't in the bathroom.
It has me puzzled.
No matter how long the hill, if you keep pedaling you'll eventually get up to the top.
