Maybe it's just the way you worded it, but f he's running out, why would he be circling DFW for hours?

We've had weather here in the DFW area, and undoubtedly ATC delays along with it, so it sounds like it's just a run-of-the-mill weather diversion...

There were several diversions away from DFW this afternoon due to thunderstorms. We had one flight divert to HOU (103 ATL-DFW). Upon arrival, he had to sit in HOU for nearly 2 hours due to a ground stop.
