It appears only one thing was missing from the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season: an end.
Tropical Storm Zeta formed in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa on Friday, making the busiest hurricane season on record even busier.
But Zeta is only expected to last up to two days into 2006 as it turns to the west and fizzles out without hitting land.
The storm caught even the National Hurricane Center in Miami a little bit by surprise.
It was so far out of hurricane season that the center's spokesman, Frank Lepore, is more than a week into his annual winter leave.
