One other thing I don't understand. The board shows 47 fights departing midway between 725am and 925am, an hour before and after my 825am flight. Only 8 of those 47 flights ere canceled due to weather. If weather is the problem wouldn't all 47 flights be cancelled if they are all departing in the same weather. Just delay the flight.

Why is southwest so quick to cancel fights because a storm is pushing through. It's 6am and fight is at 0825. Flight is canceled due to weather. There's a storm moving through Chicago but it will be gone in an hour. I understand that incoming flights can't land right now because of the weather. But they will be able to in an hour or so. So why not delay flights and still get people to where they need to go instead of canceling everything for the entire morning. Delays are frustrating but at least you get to where you need to be. These days when southwest cancels a flight it's likely the next day or 2 days later before the next available flight. So just delay and not cancel everything because of a few hours of wether disruptions. By the way, I booked a flight on United that departed 45 minutes after the canceled southwest flight and it left on time. Strange how other airlines can be on time in the same weather that caused southwest to cancel everything.
