I feel sorry for you guys manging this crap. The cell looks huge and a PITA to deal with.

Good luck tonight!

Lightning within a mile of the airport.....fueling halted.....approx 15 US Airways flights sitting in hold pads - some have been taxiing for over an hour and a half.......probably pulling an all nighter......damn I need a drink.

Edit: Ramp control advised there are over 40 aircraft in holding pads waiting to take off. HP459 PHX-LAX diverted to ONT, which has crews for 4 other flights. Kill me now.
