what was the legend/myth about tracks left in the snow in one night for 100's of miles, passing over rooftops and any obstacle?

Hmmm. I always thought it was due to mice hopping through thick snow, and each "footprint" is where the mouse lands. Of course the prints were said to disappear in the middle of fields, which could be the result of the meeses attracting the attention of a hungry owl.
