Recently, I've been calling the ORD ATIS line on a daily basis, just because I'm interested in seeing what runway configurations are in use.

Usually, it's one of two configurations:

In 10, 9R, and 4R/Out 4L, 9R, 32R, 32L-T10 (North/East Winds)

OR

In 22R, 27L, and 28/Out 22L, 32R, 32L-T10. (South/West Winds)

However, today they were using different configurations:

First, I heard they were landing 14R and 10 and 22R (I think), then landing only 10 and 9R. Why these configurations?

Yes, I'm familiar with bigairport.com ... they don't mention that next-to-last combination at all. What gives?

Arriving on 14R/10 (LAHSO)/22R and departing on 14L and 22L is known as Plan "D". We were on this configuration becuase the wind was strong out of the south east (140@12). We changed to "the nines" because the wx must have deteriorated to IFR.

Right now, I see they're landing only on 27L and 28, probably due to low visibility, low ceiling, rain, etc. As expected, departures are off the 32's and 22L.

How much of an arrival capacity hit does the airport require in this configuration? I see there's a GDP in effect.
