About 4 days ago, I noticed a strange smell in our house. My husband teases me for having the super-power of super-smell, so I kept my suspicions to myself at first. I worried that maybe we had a gas leak - after running the gas fireplace for 3 days all day long, I thought maybe that could be the culprit....but then it began to smell more like a sewer smell...ew.....
Did a little research on the internet about sewer smells in the house and had nightmares of plumbers and digging up the basement floor and replacing old pipes....we flushed the basement drain and hoped that would work.
When finally Todd noticed the smell, I knew it was bad. Sarah Jane joined us in the basement to try to track down the source of the smell. We had just about settled on calling CILCO about a gas leak, when SJ pinpointed the smell to one area of the basement. And as i scanned the shelving near our deep freezer, I noticed a white package conspicuously out of place.....
rancid, rotting meat.
about a week ago I had been re-arranging the food in the freezer so I'd know what was actually in there, and apparently, I set a pork roast out on the shelf while I moved things around.
dis. gust. ing.
but this evening, my house smells much better!
