Despite rain, 'storage wars' draw cult-like local following

Quote:
A reality television show came to life Saturday in Greater Lafayette. In a sense.

Despite what started as a rainy day, hundreds turned out to attend the auction of abandoned self-storage units at local firm W.H. Long Cos.' five area locations.
The recent success of "Storage Wars," a show that has become a cult favorite since it debuted in December on the A&E network, brought many more curious bidders than normal to the event, said Kelly Sell, W.H. Long regional manager.
"We had a record attendance at our first location -- probably 200 to 300," Sell said. "Our auctioneer said he had over 6,800 hits on his website, just (related to) interest in our auction."
The company typically holds such auctions once every three months. The goal is to sell units whose owners have been delinquent on payments for at least 120 days.
