On Thursday, April 3, a big spring snowstorm arrived just as a pipeline protest began in St. Paul. I was there, one of the 300 people who gathered near the Mississippi River under heavy skies that spit sleet and snow. We were a tenacious, high-spirited group. MN350 and other groups organized the rally.
