Does anyone know what was the awful smell in the air this morning in Midtown? I can't think of who to call to ask.

I don't know what it was, but I almost gagged when I walked out my front door at 8am. If I had to guess I'd say it was probably from the municipal dump. The wind usually blows that out over the bay, but when the wind is blowing east-to-west, we get the smell.
