    A few weeks ago it was cigarettes. I was driving north on Naperville Road on the evening commute and all of a sudden my car smelled like smokes. Opened the window and it was worse. Smelled like that all evening outside.

    I imagine it was just an inversion layer with little wind. But why a cigarette smell? And why now a refinery? This is Glen Ellyn! It ought to smell like fine wine and fireplaces.

    There were a couple of fires the week of thanksgiving when I was there that made Wheaton smell like an ashtray....maybe that was it?
