UPDATE 9/12/17 4PM Happy to say we do now have power. I will be in the office all day tomorrow. I believe the staff will follow shortly. We should have new auctions going up by tomorrow. Thanks for your patience!!
UPDATE 9/12/17 8AM We have lost power and water. Hopefully will be restored soon. Please bear with us. We will be back up as soon as we get our power restored.
UPDATE Irma decided to take a left turn and will not be nearly as bad for us as I first thought. Our thoughts and prayers are with those on the west coast and keys of Florida. We should be open for business on Tuesday. I am planning on going into the office tomorrow after the winds subside. Actually I was just there to check on things and everything is high and dry. The trains are safe!!!.
We are preparing for hurricane Irma which should reach us sometime this weekend or early next week. There is still time for it to turn a little but at this point we are very concerned we may be a target for the eye. Hopefully not.
Chooahooauctions.com will continue to work as our server is located near Chicago or someplace like that. So please feel free to bid on any auction and keep up activity.
However our processing services will be closed tomorrow, Monday, and possibly Tuesday. It depends on how mean Irma is. We are located on a barrier island and if we leave we cannot get back on the island until the OK is sounded. I think Iím going to stay here in the warehouse and ride it out with our trains, but the staff has already left.
With all my sincerity, we appreciate your business, and will appreciate your understanding and patience with the processing of your orders. We will get them out the door as soon as we possibly can.
As long as we have electricity, I will do my best to keep you informed of what is happening. Hopefully this one will be similar to the one we suffered last year which really wasnít all that bad. Just a little scary!
