Something is burning...

It's been a mixed bag of weather these past few weeks. Lows in the 40's (Fahrenheit) highs in the 70's and Thursday kicked up winds of 25mph gusting to 40 at times.
I have a fan in the window of my home office that's 20 years old and sometimes It squeaks because the bearing/bushing in the motor is worn. I haven't bothered to open the cover to oil the bushing.
A few times it's stopped because the bushing/bearing is worn.

Friday morning, I opened the bedroom door to a heavy burning electrical smell throughout the house. Although it's a strong smell, it didn't set off the 3 smoke detectors in the house!

I took the fan from the window and moved it outside on the patio, opened all the doors and windows. Strong winds are helping remove the smell from inside.

I'm sure there's a song about 'something burning' but I think it's related to a country music star and his girlfriend!
