Shipping Delays Expected Due to Colorado Wildfires
As I'm sure some of you have seen there are a number of very large wild fires burning here in Colorado right now, some are still at 0% containment even after almost a week due to unpredictable winds and extremely high temps/dry air.

As the fires have spread and approached some main highways we are getting updates that both inbound and outbound shipments may be impacted for the next few days. The communications from FedEx and our freight partners indicates that the delays are only minor at this point, but we may see interruptions in service if the situation gets any worse. Please understand that these are circumstance beyond our control and we will do our best to get your shipments processed as fast as we can.
Don't worry... Adam's HQ is a long ways from any of the current fire zones, and only shipments are being impacted right now. Please send some positive vibes to the unfortunate people who have lost homes and/or been injured by the fires.
We will resume our normal operations as soon as the situation allows. Thanks for your patience.
