After a few days of warm weather, the northern Nebraska stockyards were–how should I say it?–ripe. Today’s cold front here in Kansas has north winds ushering in a smell straight from those aforementioned stockyards.

The end result: everyone’s checking their shoes to make sure they are the ones who stepped in something. It’s not you, it’s the air today.
