now here's a 'duh' moment on my husband's part. i'll let you know that my dh has a degree in physics and an interest in technology, but doesn't seem to have much of a clue when it comes to how things have to work when it comes to manual labor and household machinery like lawnmowers, rototillers and this important piece of winter equipment-the Snow Blower! i got a call today at work about 3pm from him. he's been out of work for sometime now and has been saying he wanted to make sure it was working before we needed it. with the storm coming tomorrow morning he finally decided to do it today! so he's on the phone and i'm trying to work at the same time. he's worried and wants me to call my dad to come over and help him fix the snow blower that doesn't seem to be starting up. he's checked the oil, added some fuel and dry gas, got it plugged in and hit the button (electric start ) but it still won't turn over the engine. he's all in a panic and i'm asking what he's done to it to try and get it started. as he keeps on talking about how it sounds like it wants to start i realize that he left out an important step. he forgot to open up the fuel line! my co-workers got a good laugh too after being told all about it! go ahead and post any 'DUH' moments of spouses, significant others, not just your dh if you want.
