Messages in the snow bring warmth on coldest days

Snow Messages Bring Warmth In Cold Weather
It's been an exceptionally harsh winter season, what with the polar vortex and endless snow, but that's not stopping folks from making warm messages in the cold weather.

Outside of St. Cloud hospital in Minneapolis, someone carved the word 'love' and a peace sign into the snow over the frozen Mississippi river. Staffers say it's been going on for some time.

An anonymous couple sporting snow shoes reportedly comes around and stomps different messages into the snow for patients who have definitely taken notice.

It's this kind of considerate act that might actually have some people hoping for more snow.

A heart-warming message showed up Sunday in Chicago on the roof of a University Medical Center parking garage. Employees say they saw four people writing the words "Hi Mom, God Bless U!" and don't know who it was intended for, but we're sure it made their day.

At the University of Missouri, where All American defensive lineman Michael Sam recently revealed to the public that he's gay, supports wrote his last name rocking the Mizzou "M" into the snow at Faurot Field.

I absolutely love this but just want to say the St. Cloud Hospital is actually in St. Cloud Minnesota. We are a fabulous community and things like this happen more often than you'd guess. Long live The Cloud.

St. Cloud is not 'in' Minneapolis - Minneapolis is a city, St. Cloud is in the state of Minnesota. And it's about 1.5 hours away from Minneapolis....

My sister-in-law's mother was in the hospital, and my brother in law and I were wagering if we could walk across the Mississippi River......he bet I could only make it about 100 feet.....I told him I could make it all the way across......we then looked out the window, down at the river, and this article shows exactly what we saw that day!!.........

Leave it to the media to get the information wrong in the great fly-over land of Minnesota. St. Cloud hospital is NOT in Minneapolis; it's in St. Cloud, Minnesota about 70 miles northwest of Minneapolis.

Our grandchildren were born at this hospital! They are in elementary school now, and today they might have the first outside recess for months

These positive messages are SO needed for everyone! I hope that whomever is doing this will keep it up! People need to have their spirits lifted with love, peace, positivity with so much hardship and negativity going on. YAY!
