Thanks William. You response is much appreciated. 

Should I have just changed the origin URL in the first place to point to my new 
local repo? What I did was to just add another remote with a different name 
(temp_repo). So if I do "git remote" I see origin and temp_repo. I then pushed 
to "temp_repo". 

Or should I have pushed as I did and then change the origin to the new repo 
location? So If I would "git remote" i would still only see one (origin) but it 
would point towards the temp_repo location?
