Can anyone help me to understand Convergence in Probability?

P(|Xn - X| < e) -> 0, as n goes to infinity. 

This makes sense if X is a constant, but how could this ever be true if X is a random variable? No matter what Xn should go to the same value at infinity, but X could go to any value within its range. This seems like a nonsensical statement to me. 

It makes perfect sense for the law of large numbers, because the expectation is a constant and not an r.v.. But with X I just don't get it.

#Saturn Hurricane 
Image Credit: Cassini Imaging Team, SSI, JPL, ESA, NASA
Explanation: Acquiring its first sunlit views of far northern Saturn late last year, the Cassini spacecraft's narrow-angle camera recorded this stunning image of the vortex at the ringed planet's north pole. The false color, near-infrared image results in red hues for low clouds and green for high ones, causing the north-polar hurricane to take on the appearance of a rose. Enormous by terrestrial hurricane standards, this storm's eye is about 2,000 kilometers wide, with clouds at the outer edge traveling at over 500 kilometers per hour. The north pole Saturn hurricane swirls inside the large, six-sided weather pattern known as the hexagon. Of course, in 2006 Cassini also imaged the hurricane at Saturn's south pole.

I can't imagine the world without Chopin.. and I can't imagine his music without this fabulous waltz.. It was composed in 1847.. and Chopin dedicated it to Madame Nathaniel de Rothschild
