View was great from CLE!
Did you have any of these booked as paid tickets on the same airline or redeeming miles from the same frequent flyer program? I was reticent to have booked multiple tickets whose times clashed in case it caused any problems or any were auto-canceled.

No conflicting reservations on the the same airline. But I had reservations with multiple carriers to work around that. Had to set various reminders to cancel the ones I wouldn't need.

Looking forward to not having to look at detailed weather reports, various cloud forecasts/models for a few years.

I had a backup using United miles and a primary flight on Southwest. My Southwest ticket had free same-day changes, and I was able to change to an earlier departure.

The bad weather prompted people to cancel, making it possible for the rest of us to change our plans at reasonable cost.
