The Lights Taken Out of the World

I was sitting in what appeared to be my apartment in Washington DC. I was on the bed doing work or reading. The TV was on to my left, but I was not watching it. Suddenly, the lights and television faded out to complete darkness. I could see, hear and sense the energy being drained out of the entire system. I went to the window and peeked through the mini blinds. It appeared that I was on about the 7th floor of a tall building. The entire city was in a complete blackout, and there were no lights as far as the eye could see. The sky was an eerie dark grey color with very little natural light penetrating. All the buildings were covered in about four inches of frozen snow. Directly in front of me was an old steeple church building. It was also eerily dark and lifeless.
