What does a flood smell like? (Read details)?

The photo I am describing is right here: [external link] …Right now all I can think of is:-Rain water-Mud- Pine trees- Cat's wet furI could just use those, but that paragraph will be really short compared to my other ones. I suppose I could just hide it in the middle.. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
