How does that meme on Facebook go?

"April showers bring snow plowers"?

Leave it to Larry Weber to remind us just how important these April snows are.

Larry Weber returns from his peregrinations with a look into the future at The Spring To Come ... and marvels at February: it's only the second time in 40 years that it's been the snowiest month!

Larry Weber says, until now, only once in his forty years of keeping records has there been more snow in February than January.

After this weekend ... make that twice.

The Duluth justice city coalition is hosting a march to dismantle the legacy of racism and build a community of peace this Saturday, October 14. Kim Young talked to us today and gave us details about the march.

The hope is to demand change within the community.

Snow today ... sunshine tomorrow ... and thunderstorms Monday and Tuesday.  Larry Weber on March in the Northland.

Northlanders can join the international March on Monsanto this Saturday.  The multinational agrochemical corporation is under fire for, among other things,  genetically modified seeds and the herbicide Roundup, found by the World Health Organization to be a "probably carcinogen."

Abby Splittstoesser is the event organizer here in Duluth.  And while she agrees the protests won't shutter Monsanto, she says there is a surprising amount of change people can effect right here in the Northland.
