Opening the vents
Ah, no smell. The dead rat dried up fast in our weird January heat wave. Or maybe the two boxes of baking soda, poured into old nylon socks and hung in the ducts did the trick. Either way, I removed the plastic-bag taped-on vent covers, turned on the furnace (while it's warm enough to open up all the windows and doors if the stench was still bad), and other than a slightly salty taste (baking soda in the air will do that), all is well.
