Road blocked by stranded van at Abbey Village

By philtaylorphoto  
You couldn't make it up, a pool maintenance company's van dives into the floodwater following Storm Ciara.

Made me smile; but unpublished. Turned into a more serious day in the following hours as towns flooded

As I explained in this article, part of photojournalism is making your own luck. Find where the snow falls deepest, the flood plains (on Sunday that was called the North), how to navigate from one flood to another without getting stuck. Then, of course, simple luck happens, and a pool cleaner's van dives into a flood.
