Fellow Texas riders
Hope everyone is prepared for Hurricane Harvey. Here in Houston we are going to be on the dirty side on the storm. They are calling for at least 12 inches of rain with up to 30 inches if it stalls. For y'all closer to the coast hope all goes well. Now for the funny of the day. I work my 10 hours today. Get home, put the patio furniture up, take town wife's hanging plant and put up a few other things around the yard. Last project of the evening, get generator out and start. I start my generator every month so no big deal. Oil, ✔, gas, ✔, choke on, ✔, pull to start, ✖. No start, pull, no start. 15 pulls no start. Pull air filter, spray starter fluid, starts and dies, repeat at least 10 times, same result. Then my wife comes out to tell me dinner is ready. She sees that I'm frustrated. She asks if that big red knob that says gas should be turned off. I throw the starter fluid across the yard. I turn the gas on, pull cord and it starts. She starts laughing and gives me a hug. So after I swallow my pride I thank her. Hope you all get a chuckle. I'm now as ready as I'm going to be. Good luck to all down in this area, I will post updates as I can.
