About 10 minutes after I sent out my Banquet/Results email last night, the  
Lightning was too much for part of the electrical grid around the host 
hotel.  The power dropped off. Not just our hotel, many city blocks were 
without!  As of this afternoon - and likely, according to the hotel folks, until  
tomorrow, no power at the hotel. I was hitched up and ready to bring the race 
 car over to the car display (Thanks for holding that spot for me, Rick!) 
But we  had to, in essence, abandon the hotel for Saturday night. To do that, 
we had to  fully pack for the flat-tow home, which meant the race car was 
fully packed with  crap. That took until mid-morning and we had to drop the 
plan for  displaying it at the Gilmore. Since we didn't really have an 
alternate  hotel location, we decided to visit the Gilmore car display - Very 
impressive  Corvair displays - then hot-foot it back toward California. I walked 
a bit of  the Gilmore Museum with Bob & Ray - (That would be Norwalk and 
Fallot)   and they had a bunch of great "background" info on some of the 
classic cars.  Tonight Barb and I are outside of Des Moines, Iowa. Westward, Ho!
