An "X" in the snow marks the location of my world in recent days.
How was the "X" formed? Ice accumulated on the power lines above, forming an ice tube around the line. When the sun came out, it melted the top off the tube and the remaining ice fell to the ground. These two pieces just happened to land on the snow in the pattern of an "X'. The rake-like tines on one side were caused by icicles hanging down from the tube's bottom side.
An additional couple of inches of heavy, wet snow fell overnight. This photo was not converted to black and white. My world IS black and white on Monday morning.
