Our village is ok, but the next one along, Pangbourne, we can't even drive to as the roads have been closed. When I got home I tried to look up online on the news to see what's going on but there are just too many floods to follow everything i suppose.
So then I checked Flickr, and there's heaps of pics of not just Pangbourne but of my home town Worcester's floods too. This is one of the things I love about user generated media, that it covers the long tail.
Someone somewhere has taken a whole load of pics of the story I'm looking for, and because of Flickr I can see them.
