    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Almost immediately after President Obama walked off the stage inside Time Warner Cable Arena, hundreds of workers sprang into action to return Charlotte to normal. 

    They broke down equipment, rolled up carpet and spruced up floors. They expect to have everything finished by Tuesday.

    Across the street at the Epicentre, workers spent the morning loading several trucks as MSNBC wrapped up its live broadcast.  Thousands of people packed the outdoor venue during the DNC, making it one of the most popular spots.

    "It's like you've had these houseguests for a few days. You're ready to see them go, but you sort of wish they could stay a little longer," Epicentre's Director of Business Development, Ed Camp, said.

    Charlotte's transformation back to normal began overnight, with crews removing barricades, fences and cones.

    By the time sunlight appeared, most of the roads in uptown had already reopened.
