  • I always heard that you smelled ozone AFTER the storm. Before the storm was the vegatation smell. So take you pick, OP. If it's an earthy smell or an electrical smell, now you know what causes it.

  • Believe it or not, rotting vegatation. That's why it smells "earthy".

  • The smell is OZONE. It often precedes a storm.
