I can't remember a day where I've seen so much rain, thunder and lightning, including several strikes near my house. Even during the couple hours between storm cells, there was constant cloud to cloud lightning. Crazy stuff, and of course the air traffic is messed up. Here are some diversions I found interesting for one reason or another.

NW 340 DET-LGA, B752
Scheduled Dep: 5:01pm
Actual Dep: 6:20pm
Diverted to: DET(!), landing back where they started at 11:13pm

My home airport (BDL) has two other diversions from JFK last night.

AFR008 Air France B773 Paris to BDL
CCA9015 Air China B742 ANC to BDL

There should more diversions to BDL last night.
