CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A busy day at Charlotte's airport was hampered by weather delays. "It's normal, quiet normal. It's almost like nothing is going on," said traveler Andrew Bramley. But by midday, cars headed to drop off and pick up passengers were backed up. Excited delegates and Democratic National Convention visitors were greeted by hundreds of volunteers who helped them navigate their way through security and baggage claim. Later in the day severe weather caused dozens of flight delays. Dozens were left waiting for baggage. "Apparently there was lightening and it shut down the baggage ramps so we're just excited to get going and hopefully our bags come out soon," said Sean Miller, a DNC delegate from Pennsylvania. But the delays couldn't dampen the spirit of politicians and delegates who traveled miles to witness a monumental moment. "I'm very upbeat. You travel, things happen. No one has yet figured out what to do about the rain," said Michael Nutter, mayor of Philadelphia. Airport officials expected more than 12,600 passengers to end their trips at the airport Monday. They say things should slow down Tuesday.
