  1. "Everybody is asking for deviations. Everybody is getting a lot of help from ATC, they really been good, way better than they used to be in the past. They got better radars now and a little more confident. But somehow the accidents still occur I'm appalled at general aviation (GA) inability to understand what Nexrad can and can't do for them...." -Dick Rochfort
