Heart-warming messages etched in snow

February 11, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Huge messages left in the snow on the frozen Mississippi River are giving patients at St. Cloud Hospital a lift.

On the ground, the patted-down snow on the river doesn't look like much. But, from the hospital windows above, the messages are quite clear. The latest are the words "love" and "believe," along with a peace symbol. Each time there's fresh snow, there's a new message.

Nurse Mary Habiger has seen a man and woman in snow shoes stamping out the messages. She says the mystery couple seems well organized and know what they plan to write.

Habiger tells WCCO-TV (http://cbsloc.al/1bIVNo6 ) that there are lots of family lounges in the hospital that face the river. So even if a patient's room doesn't overlook the river, they can view the messages from the lounges.
