Shanghai reflections

About this time last year it was cold in Shanghai.
As it normally is around this time of year.
The air was clear.
That is not always a given.
Few cities can compete 
with the compact gloominess 
of a fog-ridden Shanghai.
But this night it was crisp and clear.
We seldom think of the effect weather conditions have on light at night.
Dark is dark.
Or is it?
