A mid-spring snowstorm in Colorado over the weekend postponed a rally that sought to bring attention "climate change" and "global warming," as well as protest President Donald Trump's climate policies.
A march slated to take place in Colorado Springs on Saturday had to be cancelled after weather forecasters predicted heavy snowfall and blizzard-like conditions. Only a few inches of snow fell in the Colorado Springs area, but more than a foot of snow fell on other parts of the state.
"Sometimes Mother Nature throws you a curveball! We know we aren't in the business of risking anyone's safety. Dangerous conditions and wet heavy snow in the forecast for tomorrow," a local climate change organization wrote on their Facebook page.
The rally and march was rescheduled for Sunday afternoon.
The freezing weather and snow, however, was unable to postpone a similar rally in Denver, where pictures of a snowman at the global warming rally made rounds on Twitter.

As well as an ironic sign:

In other parts of the country where similar marches and rallies took place, the weather was a little kinder to the liberal climate alarmist narrative. In Washington D.C., the temperature was in the upper 80's to near 90 as people gathered to protest Trump's climate policies.
The People's Climate March, which was supported by hundreds of thousands across the country and tens of thousands in Washington, was sponsored by environmental groups, labor unions and social justice groups.
Video showed thousands marching in the streets of Washington, where former Vice President Al Gore, Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio and Virgin Atlantic owner Richard Branson showed up to protest as well.

This weekend's protests come one week after last week's "March for Science."
