On an a typical IFR day on the East coast of Florida, I heard a Piper Cherokee check in with Miami Center...
Cherokee N123: Miami Center, Cherokee N123 at 4000, ATIS for Palm Beach.
Miami Center: Cherokee N123, maintian 4000. Cherokee: Center, I'll need to get lower to land at Palm Beach. Center: Cherokee N123, let me see what I can arrange.
(Short pause) Center: Cherokee N123, I've got good news. Apparently, you'll be landing at 4000 feet today.
