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.

St. Cloud. Lots of fond memories from the college there and of all the warm hearted people I grew up with. Minnesota compassion at work.

This can't be happening. GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL. Must be sand trucked in to look like snow.

Instead of hash tags, they could use "snow angeles".

Why is the last paragraph in this story? What does Michael Sam have to do with it? PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL WRITERS, HIRE AN EDITOR!

Ummmm sorry Huff Post... St. Cloud Hosp. is in St. Cloud MN, not murderapolis aka Minneapolis. Also known as Centra Care Health System. As I call it Centra Care Suck System. Suck all your money out of you. Wish we had another hosp. close by, would at least have a choice. But kudos to whom ever is out there making patients smile.

If anyone takes the time to write something in the snow, I think that's great. I know if I were sick in the hospital and saw the writing, it would bring a smile to my face!!!

St. Cloud Hospital is in St. Cloud MN. Which is north of Minneapolis about 70 miles. I know, because I went to Nursing school there in the 70's!
