So, it's predictable that its own activities will be the big story of 2019. More powerful than governments, business enterprises, and nutty leaders is the media.

  The blizzard of 2019 probably will no way be historic. There were blizzards that made history. The blizzard of the early 1960s shut down schools in northern New Jersey for a week.

By Wednesday shelves were swept clean of groceries.    It will occur on a weekend. That means schools won't be affected.
