Tropical Storm Isaac blew over the Florida Keys Sunday before heading west into the Gulf of Mexico, where forecasters say it should become a hurricane before making landfall somewhere in the northern Gulf Coast.

Though Isaac was wide and windy, there were no major reports of damage in Miami-Dade or Monroe Counties, and hardy Keys residents described the storm as "just a summer day in Key West."

It was, to be fair, slightly more than that: More than 80,000 people are reportedly still without power Monday morning in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, almost 600 flights were grounded in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, and the storm prompted school closures for Monday.

Check out images of Florida preparing, enduring, and even enjoying Isaac:
