Out of the Blue

Thankfully it turned out Hudson the wonder dog did not suffer a skunking last night, nor was it the Gunnar-man, which is quite a relief. MrsBlue admitted she'd actually lost track herself of whether the doggies were inside or outside, and went on a quick hunt herself when she caught wind of the skunking. Anyway, someone got it pretty badly last night… that vaguely sweet skunk smell you sometimes encounter while driving is the result of an unfortunate skunk also encountering someone who was driving and ended up as road-kill. The smell of something or someone that's been sprayed is so much nastier and more powerful that MrsBlue and I were both fairly nauseated just from what was wafting in the window, reinforcing our happiness that the dogs were not the victims this time (amid our gagging).

I know a guy who demolished his house and rebuilt on the same property partially due to Skunks living in his crawlspace.

For some reason we have a lot of them here in Bucks county, PA. I see more skunk roadkill than squirrel roadkill around here!
