19:03:27 <Kevin L> Morning. (Lurking, cooking breakfast and getting kids to school)
19:04:27 <cb> me too! often am in the am. work!!
19:06:36 <BB> hi cb
19:08:26 <cb> Hey BB! how U?
19:08:50 <BB> so glad it's Friday :) And my work day is already over
19:08:54 <BB> and you?
19:09:17 <cb> and mine is just beginning!! :-) Am well ty!
19:09:32 <cb> I think.....working on my first cuppa coffee
19:09:33 <Kevin L> And mine are over.
19:09:57 <cb> your work day Kevin?
19:10:17 <Kevin L> I retired in December.
19:11:06 <BB> hi Kevin, I think we haven't met in here
19:11:19 <BB> I used to hang here all the time before they moved the static cam
19:11:19 <Kevin L> hi
19:11:57 <BB> Were you hoping for snow, cb?
19:12:56 <cb> had to get a refill! YES!! i was
19:13:31 <cb> and the weather reports had this storm all hyped up to me the mamma of all storms....
19:13:34 <BB> oops, OF
19:13:44 <BB> 07:13 ie
19:13:47 <cb> ty
19:14:00 <cb> CC is on the cam
19:14:21 <BB> She zoomed in a little, so at least one person was paying attention
19:15:01 <BB> Did you not have enough snow this winter? I hope it's over here, waiting for spring.
19:16:06 <cb> we had a great start to the winter! way above averages, but then stopped completely through Jan. and sent plants started to bud!
19:16:46 <BB> Funny, almost the same over here. Lots and lots of snow in December, and then mid-50s in January
19:16:57 <BB> Now back to really cold and freezing but no snow
19:17:05 <cb> Exactly!!
19:17:54 <cb> The Sierra's are getting alot. we live in the foothills and rarely get more than a few inches
19:19:24 <cb> How's the quilting comiing?
19:20:25 <BB> Not doing much right now. January is always my most unproductive month, and then I slowly recover as the days gets longer
19:20:41 <cb> G!
19:20:43 <BB> But I ordered some wool, thought I might do some knitting again
19:21:11 <BB> Never used English instructions before, a whole different language, will be interesting to figure that out :)
19:21:51 <cb> G!
19:25:16 <cb> Washburn cam has a glimpse of sun!
19:28:36 <cb> need to get ready for work.
19:28:45 <cb> in lurk mode
19:28:52 <BB> have a good day, cb
19:29:01 <Kevin L> bye
19:52:40 <ynpvisitor29> hi
19:53:06 <ynpvisitor29> anyone to webcam chat?
19:53:44 <lc> nope
19:55:47 <Kevin L> Depression???
19:59:04 <Kevin L> Never saw water, but it sure looked like an eruption.
19:59:18 <cb lurking> sorry Kevin I was afk
20:00:06 <Kevin L> Steam looked good, but covered up any water.
20:00:18 <lc> I didn't see any water but I agree with you.
20:02:14 <ynpvisitor72> Better morning for viewing than we'vehad lately
20:04:24 <Kent> Park may close a week from tomorrow. I wonder if they will turn off the cams?
20:04:41 <ynpvisitor91> turn out the lights and lock the doors?
20:04:56 <Kent> That's the word.
20:05:30 <Kent> Washington games.
20:09:19 <ynpvisitor91> Have a good link?
20:11:22 <cb lurking> looked at the NPS new site...where'd ya get the info Kent?
20:11:30 <cb lurking> news
20:12:30 <Kent> Came out of a news article and conversations with an NPS employee in Gardiner last weekend.
20:13:10 <cb lurking> ahhh! early for gates to close isn't it?
20:13:34 <Kent> Google "Government Shutdown." Parks will close if it happens. Yellowstone pretty much closes then anyway.
20:14:52 <cb lurking> will do. thanks. Bill and I were just talking about when the park closes...seemed to me it was later in march. your post was timely!! :-)
20:14:52 <Kent> Plows start between Mammoth and Norris on then 7th so we are getting close.
20:28:31 <ynpvisitor14> hi
20:30:41 <steve> I was hoping to be in the park for opening weekend. A federal shutdown would stop that. Even if they restart, if the plowing isn''t done, the park won't open
20:31:27 <steve> Looks like the bubblers at BH are on
20:35:19 <Kent> http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/open_closedates.htm#CP_JUMP_329760
20:41:49 <ynpvisitor91> Funny concessioners don't have firm dates for their openings. I wonder what would happen if I called for a room at Mammoth in late April
20:42:06 <ynpvisitor91> from your link Kent, thanks
20:45:44 <lc> OF 0845ie
21:00:46 <ynpvisitor68> hi
21:13:27 <steve> Would it be possible to get one more close look at BH?
21:15:02 <Kent> Looks like we are on pre-set? It will be nice to have static back come spring.
21:22:03 <steve> ty
21:22:29 <Kent> Pretty quiet
21:22:55 <steve> Any Loins this morning, or is this the long splashing before the initial?
21:24:02 <lc> no Lion this morning

21:55:04 <Rich> Hi visitor81
21:55:32 <Kevin L> Bison are either getting gray or they have a lot of snow sticking to them.
21:55:41 <Rich> hi visitor91

21:59:58 <CB> Dr. Strangelove???? never have seen that
22:01:04 <Kevin L> Good movie, but a bit different. You have to watch it a few times before you really get it all.
22:02:03 <CB> Hum....anything like Kill Bill? I forget the Directors name....
22:02:41 <CB> Snowy/rainy day here...snow kept me from work today...a movie sounds good
22:03:34 <Kevin L> This was early Stanley Kubrick in 60's. About crazy general who sent bombers to attack Russia. Has Peter Sellers (3 parts) and George C Scott.
22:04:20 <CB> OHHHH I remmember that one now!!
22:05:09 <Kevin L> Favorite line is "Gentelmen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room."
22:05:22 <CB> Have The Longest Day on right now!! Background noise
22:05:40 <CB> good movie
22:06:21 <Kevin L> Love that one. Wife hates it, but it is one of the best.
22:07:18 <CB> yes it is! Great Cast! My all time fav is a Band o Brothers
22:07:28 <Kevin L> Another good one is "The Enemy Below".
22:08:24 <CB> Agree!!!

22:25:48 <CB> like the plowed walk!
22:26:24 <Rich> Wonder if Purina makes a 'Winter' Bison Chow.
22:26:35 <CB> like the plowed walk!
22:27:35 <CB> The skyline looks like we might be in for afternoon snow again
22:28:17 <Rich> Perhaps the Bison heard the VEC had a special on a 'hot' lunch program.
22:28:46 <CB> G they are sure are following the cue
22:28:50 <lc> g
22:29:41 <CB> Lights are starting to flicker here!! raro
