Foul Stench

The air is stale and has a foul stench since the rain we had a week ago. The rain came down very quickly and washed a lot of what was in the paddock into the dams, or the specially constructed silt traps which are designed to stop the rubbish going into the dams. The sheep manure that ended up in the silt traps has fermented nicely until the stink fills the air. Thank goodness the nearest dam is a few hundred metres away from the house, or I don't think I could bear to stay here.
