Delegates to the Republican National Convention spent Monday reuniting with fellow Republicans, getting pep talks from governors and party leaders, and bouncing from reception to reception.

With little taking place in the convention arena, where most events were scrapped Monday due to Tropical Storm Isaac, some delegates showed up to scope out their seats and take photos in front of the empty podium.

Pennsylvania delegate Marion Taxin says she didn't take an umbrella as she headed to the aquarium in Tampa, Fla., for an event with her governor. Wisconsin delegate Sol Grosskopf says he feels like he's gained a day to catch up with old friends.

Arkansas delegate Dorothy Crockett says she's looking forward to a Republican hurricane: a GOP takeover of Congress and the White House in November.
