Heading home I see probably ten CO aircraft sitting off gates at MSY. Being on the CrackBerry and not at a desktop, I can't check further.....is IAH on a ground stop right now?

I don't know, but DFW was on a ground stop this morning. My 7:50 flight didn't get airborne until about 9:40.

Yes. There's a ground stop in effect due to thunderstorms moving thorugh the Houston area, according to FlightStats.com.
