Venice: Two teens steal a car and end up smashing into Yummies Donuts
Sarasota County Sheriff called at 11:38 pm to tell us a vehicle hit the building.
Two teens, steal a car, were chased by law enforcement, lost control and ran into Yummies. They hit hard enough to make a huge hole in the concrete wall and knock over a full Coke cooler. It sent the coffee equipment flying. We have a special water purification system to make coffee. The water line was severed and flooded the dining room.
So yes this is another trial. We don’t know why these things keep happening. It is difficult. challenging and exhausting. Could these be huge signs telling us to close Yummies? Could it an opportunity grow our faith and share our testimony? That must be it because it didn’t us long to recognize the blessings. No one was killed or hurt. Sarasota County Sheriff’s Dept got the kids and helped secure the property. Sarasota County Firemen were completely awesome, checking everything over. They helped lift the Coke cooler to its upright position. They helped remove all the water. They helped remove the debris from the inside. Our favorite Sarasota County Building Inspector was there and didn’t condemn the building. Our landlord and maintenance supervisor came quickly to help board up the hole. Plus, our favorite GC Scot Findlay from Southeastern Site, came down from LWR.
We were surrounded but so many amazing people that were there offering help and support, late on a Saturday night. They all knew we needed to be ready to open at 6 am Sunday morning. They chose to help us make it happen.
Allen and I just got home from cleaning up. We made it just in time so that our Yummies family can have their Sunday coffee and donuts. I guess were in it for another day.
