I spy, with my little

uh, Nose?

I smell a fire. And not a camp fire.
and my nose, it knows.

Despite years of nursing, and having my olfactory sense burned out by killer things in the hospital, I still have a very keen sense of smell.

There is a fire, somewhere, and no one is reporting it. I can't see it, I don't hear airplanes, and I don't see smoke, either.

But it's out there.
I hate it.

HA! Vindicated! Our local newspaper which usually takes forever to notice anything has FINALLY reported that we are getting smoke from a few different, far away fires, due to wind directional change or some sort of rot like that.
I knew it.

another edit
apparently, one of the local Trash Trucks caught on fire nearby this morning, as well. Interesting....

Your nose is talented. My nose is only talented when I'm pregnant(which I'm not.) Then I can smell water. It's weird.
