01:47:46 <lc> Oblong ?
01:54:22 <Hawkeye> well the snow stopped yesterday evening but the wind is still going, everything is covered in ice
01:57:35 <Dave from B> Wow...nice colors on OF 857ir
01:57:40 <Dave from B> ie
01:58:30 <Graham> nice to see ppl out early as the SL is open
02:03:42 <CC> I keep loosing my internet
02:04:01 <Hawkeye> that's a pretty view
02:04:04 <CC> has to be the heavy winds
02:04:22 <Kevin L> Bird on the wire will do that to mine.
02:04:38 <vw> Good morning all!
02:04:43 <CC> I have underground wires
02:04:43 <vw> Beautiful view, CC!
02:04:54 <CC> hey vw
02:05:18 <Dave from B> Morning, CC and vw
02:05:30 <CC> hi dave

02:11:19 <Dave from B> Thanks and same to you, vw
02:11:51 <Dave from B> With free time Sat-Tues I should be in this room at some point from GF
02:12:22 <Dave from B> In between card games, racquetball, and watching football
02:12:43 <Kevin L> You were right about that game last night Dave.
02:12:55 <Kevin L> A little different than we thought though.
02:12:55 <Dave from B> Great BYU defense
02:13:15 <Dave from B> They had a pretty good year
02:13:48 <Kevin L> Pretty strange to have a defensive player that should get the offensive player of the game award.
02:14:28 <Dave from B> Well, he did produce most of the points
02:21:24 <Hawkeye> glad to see washburn cams are back
02:23:57 <AG> Good morning everyone.
02:29:28 <lc> morning AG
02:38:54 <Dave from B> Morning, AG
02:40:34 <Graham> who blurred the cam view?
02:42:01 <Graham> headed out, Merry Cristmas everyone, I may stop in sometime but not sure.
02:44:53 <ynpvisitor63> is it shaking from trying to hold focus?
02:48:50 <ynpvisitor9> the cam has a heart beat!
03:20:53 <ynpvisitor53> of 1020
03:24:19 <lc> Big steam down basin.
03:26:32 <ynpvisitor53> could be lion
03:28:15 <lc> my first thought was Riverside, but ?
03:28:47 <ynpvisitor53> yes could have been
03:29:06 <Will B (@ work)> hmm cant see much
03:30:44 <lc> never know now
03:31:19 <lc> OF does mess up the view.
03:43:57 <lc> bbl
04:10:51 <ynpvisitor85> bbb
04:27:10 <ynpvisitor26> another balmy day in the basin!
04:34:24 <Kevin L> Looks like Lion may may be ie on the static cam.
04:34:30 <Maureen> Lion?
04:42:35 <ynpvisitor17> of 1142
04:50:31 <Maureen> nice to see E times again on GT today.
04:50:58 <Maureen> hey Kristine...cold enough for you?
04:51:46 <Kevin L> The e times really help with Daisy & Grand.
04:52:02 <Kristine> Hi. I'm loving it!! Been out photographing; heard a wolf howling in the basin this morning.
04:52:28 <Kevin L> He was probably cold too.
04:53:47 <Kristine> It really wasn't too bad this morning, only about -11.
04:54:22 <Dave from B> Yeah...only takes 0.5 seconds to freeze your tongue to a sign
04:54:55 <Kristine> Haha. Good reason for me to not lick the signs :-)
04:55:30 <Maureen> glad you are getting some nice shots!
04:55:46 <Maureen> it was -18 here.
04:56:25 <Kristine> That's what I heard from one of the guides a little bit ago.
04:57:20 <Dave from B> Very beautiful if you are dressed for it
04:57:28 <Maureen> hey Dave...how is your daughter doing?
04:57:36 <Dave from B> Probably not for Kevin, however.
04:57:42 <Kristine> Yes, it is.
04:57:49 <Dave from B> My college daughter?
04:58:23 <Dave from B> She is doing great. Been home since Wednesday. Finished her first semester happy with how she did on finals
04:59:28 <Maureen> nice, glad to hear it.
04:59:58 <Maureen> no work today Kristine?
05:00:12 <Hawkeye> I don't miss college and homework and finals but I sure do miss the long breaks!
05:01:22 <Kristine> Weekend.
05:02:07 <Kristine> It's lunchtime so I'll see ya later.
05:03:03 <Maureen> the steam almost looks like it is moving in slow motion.
05:11:22 <Maureen> there are some little ones in that bunch.
05:12:43 <Hawkeye> do the wolves target the littles ones more or the loner/unhealthy ones more?
05:13:49 <Dave from B> Unhealthy would be their first target
05:14:12 <Hawkeye> that's what I assumed. Not all loners are unhealthy.
05:14:27 <Hawkeye> If I remember right, it's usually males that are alone?
05:15:25 <Dave from B> They are opportunistic; just like grizzlies
05:16:29 <Hawkeye> does they bison choose to be alone or are they kicked out
05:18:17 <Dave from B> Getting beyond my expertise...I believe females and young usually congregate together at least for parts of the year
05:18:38 <Dave from B> Males are loners for the most part
05:28:25 <AG> hi everyone.
05:30:23 <ynpvisitor87> ..
05:31:07 <Hawkeye> thanks Dave, just curious
05:32:37 <AG> not much going on today?

05:59:57 <AG> was about to let him have it. g.
06:00:24 <Hawkeye> Is there much temperature difference between the sun and the shade when it's that cold?
06:01:15 <lc> big difference if there is no wind.
06:05:35 <lc> long time since a Depression has been logged.
06:06:18 <AG> Old Faithful Side vent really prominent today.
06:06:40 <lc> makes me wonder if it is still having 3/5 hr intervals.
06:07:17 <AG> the strangeness on the hill continues....haha.
06:12:49 <kc (working)> nice OF
06:12:55 <lc> OF 1313
06:12:58 <af> wow
06:13:18 <af> are those things tress on the lower right or people?

06:15:54 <af> plume?
06:16:08 <AG> No way to tell.
06:16:30 <af> there was a steam colun behind of but yes no way to tell
06:16:42 <AG> YES. Plume 1316 ie. I see the steam cloud now.
06:17:08 <AG> Yep. For sure.

06:20:52 <af> ~~~~~~
06:21:23 <AG> was karen in that group?
06:22:03 <lc> she will probably tell us if she was.
06:28:30 <Hawkeye> this is a good facebook page if anyone is interested. they list what wildlife and geysers they saw on their tours. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Yellowstone-Tour-Guides/176160852424427?fref=ts
06:37:57 <AG> I can't tell if that feature to the left of dome is erupting or not.
06:40:00 <AG> My guess would be mottled pool?
06:40:13 <AG> maybe Infant?
06:43:56 <af> a video just got a billion views on youttube
06:44:27 <AG> which one?
06:44:54 <af> gangamn style
06:45:05 <AG> Oooooooof course. lol. g.
