I can smell it also, and have not heard of any or any siren's. Must be blowing in from somewhere.

too bad the national guard units that schwarzenegger would like to activate to help fight the various wild fires in northern california are actually in either iraq or afghanistan. :(

This isn't anything. Try being up in Paradise, the Motherlode, or on the Napa/Solano County borders.

Stop yer whining!
