Check out this link for DEN departures this morning. I'm wondering what the reason is that almost every departure makes a strange flight path and sometimes just orbiting in circles in route. Click on any flight and you'll see what I mean.

It probably doesn't help you when you you think you are looking at departures, when the link takes you to arrivals.
The turns you see are aircraft holding INBOUND to DEN. The snow was very intense this morning causing a groundstop for inbound flights, which also metered in the traffic already airborn. They only had 1 runway open at a time for plowing, and could only land 30 planes per hour.
