Hating on O'Hare is a great Chicago tradition. A friend of mine once advanced the theory that the problem with O'Hare was that the decisions to hold/delay planes weren't made by Chicagoans -- that traffic controllers were skittish of anything resembling bad weather near the Great Lakes and needlessly kept planes on the ground. A delightfully nativist solution to the problem!

I just spent an unexpected 5 extra hours at ORD because it was "too windy" for air travel. Chicago? Windy? Who knew? Since I live in Madison, it was particularly annoying--I could have rented a car and been home in half the time, had I known how long the delay would be.
