The OC Smells

New, 4 comments

The stench of rotting vegetation is floating through Mission Viejo, reports the OC Register. You can stop with the sideways glances--low temps and strong winds last week created conditions for a nasty-smelling algae bloom in the Upper Oso Reservoir. The paper wants to map the spread of the smell, and one commenter has made lemonade out of stinky algae: "They should send the Real Housewives of Orange County to do a show from that reservoir."
