Brooksville, Florida -- Rain flooded roads and closed some completely in Hernando County Tuesday. Watery Carr Creek Drive was a bit difficult for cars, but trucks could make it through.

People who live down the private road say they just have to wait it out.

"Basically, evaporation is the solution," said one homeowner.

In the Camper's Holiday park, not many residents were in a holiday mood.

"Um, it's wet," said Sherry Livecchi looking out at the dreary day and also within her sight, overflowing Lake Sparkman.

And in this development of modest mobile homes, there's a feeling of 'here we go again'.

"That's the flood line from last August," says Dan Dureiko, pointing to a line of mud and leaves on his fence. 

Just last month, torrential rains damaged homes and trashed vehicles. Dureiko lost a convertible, so this time around he's planning ahead.

"I'm not worried about the house too much, but if I'm not home I keep the cars parked on top now," he said.

Fred Potter also elevated his equipment. 

"I have three lawnmowers and some lawn equipment and put them on a picnic table. Hopefully, the water won't get that deep," he explained.

And with more rain expected, people are both wary and weary of the wet. 

One man put it this way, "I've seen floods before and they're not very nice."
