The A/C was on the gate in MLB just 10 minutes late @ 1103am.....and if friend reports it was bumpy any "circling" was attributed to wind/weather issues associated with Hurricane Sandy. He's safe on the ground and off the plane at this point.
More like a typical day flying in Florida.
watch what you want. you may get it.

Looks like there was a small line of thunderstorms just to the west of the field so my guess is that they were waiting on that cell to pass through to the west
Look ma' no hands!
