Farmer Bart Minton is struggling to stay afloat.
"I was just praying that it wouldn't - wouldn't hit us," he said.
But Isaac did hit, wiping out 30 percent of his rice fields the day before he planned to harvest.
"You're talking about nine inches of rain since three o'clock yesterday afternoon."
Those nine inches of rain set Minton back $400,000 dollars in just one day.
"You've got to go start right now and try to finish," he said. "Try to pay the bank back."
Minton's crew is busy switching tractors to something that can handle his two-thousand sogged and wind-blown acres before it's too late to save anything at all.
"I just was praying that it wouldn't rain. It would have been alright, I guess, if you took a little bit of rain, but the wind - the 30 mile an hour wind - that's what hurt us the worst."
Minton barely survived the summer drought. Now, he has the opposite problem, setting his harvest back at least two weeks while he waits for his fields to dry out.
"There's some farmers I feel sorry for. Their whole field is just flat," he said. "It's going to take us a while but we'll get it."
That optimistic attitude is the only thing keeping Minton going. And it's a good thing because with thousands of acres to salvage, he's got to find the energy somewhere.
