It looked, for a hot second at least, that Tropical Storm Henri might become something of a problem Floridians, but forecasters now say the system is losing strength fast and will dissipate by tomorrow.
We're thankful the storm will not go around selectively blowing down trees in the yards of people who think Roman Polanski got what he had coming or those with an inferior cheese pantry. However, this is horrible news for folks who really wanted to say "Henri" in an exaggerated French accent all weekend. C'est la vie.
