"Pattern in the snow"

Peculiar pattern in the snow on my car.

Hello John Tng and everyone.

I have been idle for some weeks again and has had nothing to contribute, but I read most of your contributions almost every day and they are very comforting and interesting. Thank you.

This morning I looked out of the window down on our car and noticed some tracks in the snow on it. I made a drawing of the tracks and they turned out to compose a symmetrical semi-rectangular form with a cross within it. I think it could not have come about by some coincidental birds' or other animals' walking about on the car, and there were no traces of anyone walking around the car that could have made them with their hands.I could perhaps imagine someone standing at a distance last night with a fishing rod or something and made the tracks manually. But it would have been quite difficult to perform it as accurately as it was made. Also why would they have done it. I guess that any symbolic or mathematical order in it would confirm the genuineness of the pattern.

The picture that I took 8:42 am (Norwegian time) 14 Nov 2010:

The drawing that I made of it from the window as an approximate appearance:

The picture is a bit bad, and some of the narrow tracks were more pronounced than the picture shows.

There were some irregularities in the general pattern shown in the drawing as light grey and grey.

Two of these could be a part of the pattern though but they were less visual than the others.

I thought that perhaps someone would try and make something out of it.

I don't have a clue.

Thank you.

God bless all of you.
