Did Anybody Miss Me?

I've been gone for several weeks, working out of town and then moving out of town. My job got transfered to Minneapolis, so after living out of a hotel for a few weeks, I moved from the Sioux Falls area to the Twin Cities area. After the move, it took almost two weeks to establish internet service, so I've been away from Motortopia for most of about four or five weeks (I did use the hotel computer a couple times for a quick peek at Motortopia). But I'm in my new house in Burnsville, MN, now, and the Internet is up and running. The new house has TWO two-car garages, while the old one had only one three-car garage. In my book, that's a nice step up. Who cares what the rest of the house is like.
Since the company moved my job and liked me well enough to want to keep me, they offered to move my stuff, including two of my cars. So, I had the '61 T-Bird and '50 Studebaker shipped. But since the company was paying, they picked the mode of transport -- an open trailer. That had me a little worried, since we were moving in November. But God is good, although he also has a sense of humor. The Sunday before the move, we got almost 10 inches of snow in the Minneapolis area. I admit it, I was worried. But then things cleared up and we had excellent weather for the move. The cars arrived dry and clean. The following weekend, it snowed again, but by then the cars were tucked away in their new garage.
Now to wait until spring to find out what the Twin Cities, and specifically Burnsville, offer in a cruising scene within the limitations of my work schedule.

Congrats on the move going so well. At least you didn't move from a nice warm climate to a really cold one, it was lateral. Only been thru the Twin Cities airport years ago and also by train one time, so know nothing about the city. But I'm sure they have plenty of car folks out and about once winter is over.

Glad all is well and everything went rather smoothly. Maybe it will settle down soon.

Over Thanksgiving, we were driving down from the Philly area to my sister-in-law's place in Raleigh, N.C., and passed an open transporter on the D.C. Beltway with three pretty ordinary cars on it... and a partially-restored 1960 Chrysler 300 convertible! You never know what you'll see on those things. Several years ago, when we were driving home from Denver when we first bought my '66 Corvair, we saw a transporter at a PA Turnpike rest stop with a '65 Corvair convertible on the top rack! Here's a link to the picture I had to take of this encounter:
