It doesn't take much light at all. Snow will take whatever light is there, and reflect it all over. I see that every winter in Indiana.
Snow on the ground looks really nice, and I like the snowfall. (As long as I don't have to drive anywhere...)

>>> What *really* shocked me was Thursday night at 11pm, long after it had been dark outside, and long after the power had gone out in our town, the snow on the ground and trees glowed so bright that you could see outside brighter than any full moon I've seen shine down. The kids were making snowmen at 10pm in the "dark" with no lights whatsoever in the area. I thought it was wicked.
>> You got pictures of that glowing snow.
> I was too tired to go get the camera, but I wondered if I should use flash or not at the time I had the thought of taking a picture. Didn't happen, and so it's lost in time forever. Sorry.
> The question is: is the moon full right now or partially? I'm too tired to go look outside right now. :) Cuz 2 days ago if the snow was glowing for any other reason, I'm going to have to look into this. At least 6 kids ended up in my yard having a snow fight in the glowing snow.
> Somebody near East Texas please tell me they saw it too. The town's power was off, so there was no "city lights" effect here.
> I do remember telling the kids... "don't eat that snow! the cloud might have passed over a chemical plant" heheheh We have the Kodak chemical plant in Longview. It's a HUGE plant the size of a small town in itself.
