Two Hour Delay

I was in Amsterdam yesterday for work. I was flying back early this morning. Well, that was the theory. We got on the plane and it looked like we were ready to leave when the pilot told us he had been asked to wait at the stand for 45 minutes because the weather was so bad in London the queue to land at Heathrow was huge and they preferred to land the planes that were already flying before allowing other flights towards London to take off. In the end, we stayed 2 hours on the tarmac waiting for air control to give us the all clear. When we landed the weather was grey but warm and mostly dry so Heathrow was going back to normal. Surely, they should be able to cope with bad weather better? It's not as if it never happened in London!
