Like most other businesses in the area, folks at Bob's Restaurant on Walnut Avenue say: no more rain.

VINTON, Va. -

Many business owners are watching the forecast closely.

Bob's Restaurant is on Walnut Avenue and is in between two low-lying bridges.

Both bridges have flooded twice in the past week, making it tough for the regulars to get there and impossible for people to stumble upon their restaurant.

Even for the regulars, the rain on Wednesday also came down at the wrong time.

"Well it was a little hectic because when it had just started was when rush hour is. People were coming in for dinner and coming in to relax after work or whatever," said waitress Jennifer Janney.
