WASHINGTON - Reports of a really bad odor blanketing the metro area have been reported from downtown D.C. to Fairfax County to Oxon Hill!

You may have smelled it Thursday night or Friday morning - and lots of people are talking about it.

We've been getting a lot of comments about it on Facebook this morning.

Rondolyn Coleman said she "thought the smell was coming from those white trees that are blooming...stinky!"

Christopher Wood has this theory, "a lot of trees have an odor that attracts flies and other insects. The bugs think they've found decomposing flesh…but they've really been tricked into pollinating the tree."

Share your comments with us on Facebook and be sure to tell us where you were when you smelled it, too!

We're trying to track down the source of the stink!

There are additional reports of a horrible stink in North Carolina these days.

My guess somewhere around Durham maybe?

I'm in Fairfax County and everything is in bloom as though it's April - but no bad smell.

I've never heard a horse complain about the smell of it's stable either.

We arrived in Alexandria last summer, and I don't smell anything. Let me check our catbox and I'll get back to you.

Of course I got it. We had horses at my prep school. ;) Consider the source, though - a man who has GOATS.

When I was a kid, Wheaton Maryland could stink pretty bad in the spring. The leaves they piled up and left (like mountains of leaves) in certain park service areas, would start to thaw and rott, and get really stinky.

Front Royal Virginia is notorious for this.

Very good. :) Riding was one of the sports electives. The school had its own horses, and some girls brought their own and boarded them at the school stables. I took riding the first year (I'd been riding since I was about eight or nine), but I was pretty much over my interest in it by then.

Did you go to that school on Telegraph Road? I can't remember the name, not Burgundy Farm, the one farther out.
