What a Difference a Day Makes

Friday was an absolutely gorgeous Spring day. Saturday? Not so much. In fact, we had rain, rain, and more rain. So much rain that, according to the National Weather Service's Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service, the river is pretty close to flood stage.

We had to drive over to Capon Bridge yesterday to run a couple of errands. Normally it would've been a pretty drive, what with all the flowering trees. But the wet weather spoiled it a bit.

Redbud Row in the Rain
Yesterday was not the time to see Redbud Row. Not only because of the rain, but because the trees just started blooming.

If you want to see Redbud Row for yourself, next weekend should be the perfect weekend for it. Hopefully it'll be sunny for you. If you plan right, you'll have time for lunch or dinner at El Puente, our favorite Mexican restaurant in Hampshire County.

El Puente is located on US-50 in the heart of Capon Bridge. If you're not a Mexican fan, there are several other places there to eat, too. Though, to be honest, El Puente is the only one we've ever tried. We like it so much, we couldn't imagine making the trek to get there and eating somewhere else.

There's an Anthony's Jr. pizza and sub shop on the corner of US-50 and Cold Stream Road. We've never eaten at that one, but there's another location in Paw Paw where we like to stop for cheese-steak subs. I imagine the food would be about the same.

If you do plan on heading out to Redbud Row, let me know. Maybe we can join you at El Puente.
