Depending where you are, not too bad. Certainly NOTHING like last year! Yea. Not stinky, not everywhere, and in an amount that is not uncommon from time to time. very manageable.

On the South end of the island late last week, we did notice a few spots where we can see it/smell it.... However as Diane said, nothing like the past. Currently it has been cleaned up by the regular beach maintenance teams and this morning no signs of it on this end....

Was on the sea yesterday and saw little of it and did not see pile up on the beach where I was staying this morning. And I was up before the yardmen came to work.
