Did you know that skunks are prevalent among California coastal towns? No? Me Neither!
I first learned of this fun fact one evening while comfortably snoozing away in my bed with the windows wide open. To my horror, I was awaken by an unbearably pungent odor slowing drifting through my bedroom. If you’ve never smelled skunk, let me tell you, it's mighty offensive. Think weed mixed with burning rubber.
Since that fateful night, I have endured a handful more of these misfortunate events. I have also passed through many “stink zones” while zipping around town in my car – that obnoxious smell lingers in your vehicle hours afterwards!
I have yet to actually see one of these elusive Pepe LePews, but beware Virginia, they DO exist.
