Would not have happened if Boeing Bobby was driving.

I know our pilots don't want to judge their coworkers, but were there better options to dodge / penetrate these storms? The gap to the South looked wider and gentler.

Also, it seems they were just a few too many miles to the right...a little more left and there might have been a gap.
