Tornado weather

That wet, humid smell on a muggy spring day when the air is heavy and still, the sky is hazy and you know a cold front is passing through in the afternoon...

That distinct potpourri on a bike ride through Deep Ellum

One part smoke from Pecan Lodge, one part spent grains from Deep Ellum Brewing Co. and one part exhaust from nearby highways with a splash of liquor on the sidewalk.
