Tropical Storm Chris

Tropical Storm Chris just went away last night. The National Weather Service says:
THIS IS GOING TO BE SHORT AND SWEET. SATELLITE IMAGES AND SURFACE
OBSERVATIONS INDICATE THAT CHRIS IS BECOMING A BROAD AREA
OF LOW PRESSURE DEVOID OF THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY. THE LOW WILL
LIKELY CONTINUE TO MOVE WESTWARD UNTIL DISSIPATING LATER TODAY.
GLOBAL MODELS WERE CORRECT INDEED IN FORECASTING DISSIPATION OF THE
CYCLONE OVER CUBA. THIS WILL BE THE LAST ADVISORY ON CHRIS UNLESS
REGENERATION OCCURS.
Cool!

This is a a good thing. If I were a conspiracy nut, I might decide that Castro had been working on a hurricane dispersal device and this was a successful test. As it is, the people of Cuba are lucky that the storm dispersed. They are operating under enough duress without having to deal with a tropical storm.
