Is it possible a neighbor is growing marijuana? You are talking about California, where it is probably as legal as it will ever get. Some very potent grades have a smell similar to a skunk with clever names like "Skunkamungus" and can be extremely pungent.
Don't ask me how I know this.

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.

It's not gas. It's not dead mice. It's not marijuana-- well, I'm not real up on weed smells. I think it's SKUNK.
I read here that skunks live in this urban area. Any confirmation of that? I
know I have seen foxes in downtown Washington, DC so I could believe skunks.
