MINNEAPOLIS — At ground level, the patted-down snow 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.
And the huge messages on the frozen Mississippi River are giving patients at St. Cloud Hospital a lift.
Nurse Mary Habiger has seen a man and woman in snow shoes stamping out the messages. She says the mystery man and woman seem well organized and plan their messages in advance.
Habiger tells 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 there.
