MIDDLEBURG, Fla. -- From their cars, Alford Mike Lee and Scott Parker sit on the banks of Black Creek and watch nature pass them by.
"I come here just about every morning to look at things," said Lee.
"It's usually peaceful down here," added Parker.
But it wasn't that way after Tropical Storm Debby poured down and caused the creek to rise to near record levels in late June.
"The water was up over the dock and for weeks afterwards the sand and everything stayed on the dock," explained Parker. "It was chaotic, and people came to see it...everybody was down here in our little peaceful spot."
Nine weeks later, Clay County is still a mess, as homeowner pick up the pieces of their neighbors lives.
"You can see lawnmowers, chainsaws, and refridgerators...stuff like that just going down the creek," said Alford.
"They're still cleaning up," said Parker, "and I'm sure those right on the water are concerned."
Concerned because Tropical Storm Isaac is threatening to bring more rain this week, and Clay County grounds are still saturated.
Residents of Clay County spent the weekend gathering sandbags to help protect their homes should the waters rise again. Although there was a shortage, the Emergency Operations Center tells Action News the sand has been replenished and is being made available at four locations throughout the county Monday.
"We've got plenty of rain right now," said Parker. "I don't think anyone's hoping for rain right now."
