Bristol is not currently under water

As of 11:44, Bristol is not under water. It may well be at 20:45 tonight, or 09:20 Saturday morning

On Avon Crescent, the council are putting up a barrier with sandbags

 Somewhere we have some photos to scan of this road being under water in 1990. Hint, avoid living in places with names like "avon", "harbour", "river" or "mead" -as every so often the water comes back to remind you where the name came from.

The avon is full, though it is draining fast
 And it makes a good change from the normal mud-flat view of the area.
Presumably the A4 portway and Avon gorge cycle paths are places to avoid tonight.

If you do want a view of any floods tonight, although the Pump House is more photogenic, the Novia Scotia pub is a better place to drink beer. They often serve pints of Heavy on draught, to get the Auld Scotia feel.
