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.

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

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.

Someone tell me how I can start a movement where the government will guarantee payment of solar panels on all roofs. We will still receive our gas and electric bill as usual, and pay for the amount we have used, but the county treasurer will add the difference (Usual bill $400.00; current bill $200.; difference $200.) to our house taxes. We would then send the (gas and electric savings of $200.00) to our county treasure. I have check before and you do not have to wait six months to pay on your property tax. This way you will not be paying more than you already paid for gas and electric but now you will begin to use solar that will eventually not cost for energy but will cost to keep you solar panels maintained; probably by you. If anyone has any thoughts on this send it to me at sexyfemalewoman@aol.com

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....

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.

Excuse me but the St Cloud Hospital IS NOT in Minneapolis. It is in St Cloud, Minnesota which happens to be about 50 miles or so northwest of Minneapolis. You would think such details would be checked prior to posting.
