Snow Storm Likely to Cause Event Cancellations

Beach & Bartolo has teamed up with Columbia County Current to bring you regular updates on local happenings. Every Thursday, here on the Beach & Bartolo blog, we will list a sampling of events, things to do, and happenings taking place around the county.

With 1 to 2-feet of snow projected for parts of the area this weekend (January 19 – 20, 2019), chances are good that there are going to be lots of event cancellations. If you have plans to attend anything this weekend, check with the organizer, venue, etc before heading out.

If we do get as much snow as the forecasts are projecting, be safe and stay off the roads unless you absolutely must go out.

When police officer Asger Holm is demoted to desk work, he expects a sleepy beat as an emergency dispatcher. That all changes when he answers a panicked phone call from a kidnapped woman who then disconnects abruptly.
