I wake in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, and my apartment is bathed in an eerie, grey glow - as if the night is lit from within.
If I didn't know it was around midnight, I would swear it was dawn. My body bangs its head against the rails of sleep, lost without the familiar black time markers.
I know instantly what has happened. It has snowed, and the white earth is lighting up the overcast sky like a moon.
