A good read.

Pilots, Controllers Respond When Storms Jostle Routes

TAMPA - On a recent stormy Friday, a 30-mile band of severe weather centered over Gainesville blocked a major commercial airline corridor from the Northeast and Midwest into Tampa International Airport.
Pilots changed flight plans over southeast Georgia to join a conga line of airliners along the Gulf Coast. That added extra minutes to inbound flights but kept air traffic flowing into TIA and other major Florida airports.

Thanks controllers! :rawk:

Should have seen the great work by ZBW the other day despite the ground stoppage. Their hard work is not unnoticed.
