The strange part is that it doesn't smell like wood burning, it smells like burnt plastic. Anyone else notice that?

it scared the crap outta me. We had a house fire a little over a year ago. The other night I smelled it and became very frightened, checking all over my house and into the attic to make sure it was not my houes(our fire started in a wall while we were sleeping) even so I could not sleep for another hour. Very bad night for me n the kids...the smell brought back bed memories

I'm already sick of this Humid Subtropical climate. I lived in Arizona and I could deal with 110 degree temps. But this humidity is just killer.

Friday morning I could smell smoke here in upper Gloucester County while doing some yard work. After a bit the smell became really strong, it made me cough and feel sick. I had to go inside. The smell was like burning plastic, so I was surprised to find out it was a forest fire. A little later in the day, we noticed it all over the county.

Tammy! How's it going? I can't believe it's you!

Remember those good times? I'll never forget that sunny day, and the car ride! Or who could forget the hamburger incident! LOL! We had a blast, didn't we? Those were good days.

How have you been doing? I hope you're well, and that everything is all right with you!

So good to hear from you, and think about the old days!

Your friend always,

The water smells kind of funny since the fires. Sort of like pesticides. Has anyone else noticed??
