As noted in a previous post, Gabby's food dishes currently are on a chair. She seems to not mind, but occasionally has a look on our face like "Why am I having to do this while Daphne's dishes are right over there?"
With the last two pics below, I'm standing behind Gabby. I leaned over and put the camera on the table and just took a snap. The red beam of the auto focus helps to get things centered, but Gabby did all the rest to make the pic look perfect.
My Christmas tree has flickered twice. I've seen some bursts of light in the low-lying clouds. I think all the ice is causing some power lines to fall and transformers to blow. My neighborhood has underground lines, but I know even with that a neighborhood could still lose power. I hope not.
