It’s better than looking with a lit match.

My wife walked by the site of the leak about 45 mins ago. According to her..the construction crew working on the Lumber Yard site were looking for the leak with a flashlight. Apparently their digging might be the cause.

i have a slight gas smell most of the time in the kitchen… is it “killing me softly”? or no big deal? it’s never so powerful that i can’t stand it. sometimes i don’t notice it, other times i do…

Funny, or not funny – there is constantly a strong odor here, as well as the SW corner of 1st and Jefferson – informed PSE&G several times, but doesn’t seem they can solve the problem – or maybe don’t care – but any day of the week, you get that smell big-time, and it’s not from the homeless guy omiting smells of his dinner either.
