Folks, I can handle a little farm stink. I grew up on a hog and sheep farm and have scooped my fair share of hog sh*t and have drug hundreds of dead bloated animals from barns and thru farm yards, but what I smelled today was so bad I almost threw up. I drove past Falls Park to see how it was barricaded (there were four police cruisers in the park, 2 parked on the Westside and 2 on Eastside. They were conveniently parked driver window to driver window. I guess if you have to be at Falls Park, best to get in your SFPD water cooler gossip in). I couldn’t see if the police were wearing gas masks, because as I got to the Silver Moon the evil smell of both manure and dead animal was swallowing up the air. It was horrendous, the smell didn’t end until I got to about 8th street. I did notice there isn’t much of a wind today, but one wonders if the scrubbers are NOT in operation at Smithfield. The rumor is they had to remove equipment from the 1st floor and close down killing operations due to the impending flood. Either way, if a strong wind comes up the whole town will be smelling like crap.

    ” In another instance, a worker who was repairing a lagoon in Michigan was overcome by the fumes and fell in. His fifteen-year-old nephew dived in to save him but was overcome, the worker’s cousin went in to save the teenager but was overcome, the worker’s older brother dived in to save them but was overcome, and then the worker’s father dived in. They all died in pig shit.”
