Yep, about 8:30 tonite as I sent here at the computer, (next to a window).....
The little stinker of a skunk must of passed right below it , cause my nose burnt so bad, and my eyes was watering.......
HD went out with all the lights on , and a flashlite ......Nothing.
We have large street type lighs on the garage and barn, but saw nothing......I guess being black and white, didn't help.
So...........I hope the lil stinker doesnt decide to spend the nite.
I actually had to hold my nose.

Yep, I did know! thumbup

They wander around the streets at night here, sometimes I'm scared to get in the truck in case one is hiding under there ready to spray me. laugh

Oh man, possums are scary looking! laugh

Mom has a good possum story...she was outside really early in the morning on the back porch having her coffee in the summer--well this thing she thought was a cat came right up to her....scared her to death because she'd never seen one up close before and she had no idea what it was at first.

She said the both sort of froze and looked at each other and then they both took off in different directions...her to the house, the possum to the garden. laugh

We have a 4 ft crawl space under our house where the foundation is and we kept the door open to air it out. I closed it one day because the neighbours cat was hanging around and locked a skunk under the house. He sprayed.

My house reeked so bad for months. I finally got rid of the smell by flooding the basement and pumping it out then mixing pure ammonia and vanilla and spraying the whole basement, I can honestly say it was the stupidist thing I've ever done.

Guess it didnt like home.
