A couple of days ago we noticed a nasty odor in the semi-finished part of the attic we use to store gear.
We tried airing it out.
We tried drying it out.
We finally decided that there must be a dead animal in the attic crawl space so we spent 2 hours emptying it out.
Once it was empty, the smell had migrated to a closet.
So everything in the closet was subjected to a sniff test.
So what smelled like a dead animal?
A pair of kids boots that had come out during Snowtober and must have been put back wet. Eeeeew.
