I have lived in the countryside for most of my life so am well adapted to smells but boy, this current one is horrendous. The farmer has either ploughed in a field where pigs have been kept for years, or slung pig or cow slurry onto the fields. Sometimes when we are out for a walk, we come across high piles of cow manure on concrete standings and usually have to hold our breath as we walk by (or for longer if the wind is in the wrong direction). That though, is a different smell to this so it must be pig slurry.
This smell arrived early yesterday morning so we went further afield for the day - until we could stop smelling it:) Without thinking, even though the air still stank, I opened the two back bedroom windows when we got home and by night time, the back of the house also stank.
Both windows were shut and another door opened to let it into the rest of the house where it was less strong, enabling us to at least sleep without choking - it really is that bad(:
First thing this morning we went to go out shopping and it is still around. We are all hoping the coming rains will put it back into the land where it belongs.
