Awash with rain


This is a picture of the river Avon in the centre of town today. The bits of tree you can see sticking out of the water are where the riverbank usually is. I was talking to a fellow photographer whilst taking this who told me he was sent home from work early for the first time in 10 years on Friday because of the inclement weather. I think this is the highest I've ever seen the river here in over 20 years and there's more to come.

  1. I haven't been into town today but we left Chippenham for the weekend on Friday and struggled to get through floods in the whole district-took us 5 hours to get to North Devon instead of the usual 3-ish.
