How do new streetlights change watching the snow fall?

There is a passage in a John Updike novel in which a character watches snowflakes drift through the illumination from a street light.

Can't remember the exact image. But I think it was something like little parachutes drifting through the cone of light one night.

So I'm wondering. Has watching snow fall in Spokane after dark changed since the new lights arrived? I mean, are the flakes more visible or less distinct because of the brighter light?
