Indianapolis smells bad today. There's "a stench wafting across downtown" according to the AP, with some people describing a sewer or natural gas odor. My friend in Indy said it smells "like rotten eggs," but at least one person told the Indy Star it smells like burned potatoes, not like the others. So far, noses are pointing to a sewer line hookup on the east side of the city. [Indy Star, AP]
