01:45:31 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty

01:47:08 <ynpvisitor85> Has anyone noticed that the spider is gone?
01:47:19 <ynpvisitor85> Bye BOB.
01:47:44 <Betty> RIP Bob
01:47:51 <Dave from B> Nice to have a bob free view
01:47:56 <lc> had not noticed.
01:48:18 <lc> guess he didn't bother me too much. g
01:48:21 <Betty> it will be sad
01:48:54 <ynpvisitor85> Guess you won't have Bob to push around anymore.
01:49:04 <Dave from B> haha
01:49:40 <Dave from B> Football has started already this morning...game in London
01:50:55 <Dave from B> BH is also due
01:51:29 <ynpvisitor85> BH looks quiet.
01:52:13 <Betty> Turban?
01:52:46 <ynpvisitor85> Sky looks pretty.
01:55:33 <Dave from B> Sure does
02:02:04 <lc> looked like Lion

02:02:29 <lc> OF 0802
02:02:38 <ynpvisitor85> OF 801
02:02:53 <lc> probably was 0801

02:41:45 <ynpvisitor20> Hello
02:42:00 <Dave from B> Morning 20

02:56:59 <lc> ie
02:57:18 <lc> maybe near end
02:58:41 <Dave from B> Is that ice near sign on static cam?
03:00:01 <lc> looks like it.
03:00:55 <ynpvisitor22> Or water. Not cod enough.
03:01:22 <ynpvisitor22> cold
03:05:49 <Dave from B> Doesn't seem to be anything happening at BH. Must have gone in early morning hours
03:06:17 <Dave from B> I think you were right 85
03:07:26 <lc> was 1b?
03:07:52 <Dave from B> Think so
03:08:08 <lc> didn't think I missed one.
03:17:00 <Betty> bad weather is crawling in
03:17:39 <lc> bbl
03:22:33 <ynpvisitor29> Not a lot of people out for the next Old Faithful
03:30:06 <Dave from B> ..
03:46:15 <Betty> OF
03:47:09 <ynpvisitor29> I am missing Bob :(
03:47:36 <ynpvisitor41> whats old cone in the ugb?
03:47:47 <Dave from B> 29, I'm sure there is another Bob close to you at this moment...just look around!:)
03:47:56 <Betty> in LGB
03:52:53 <ynpvisitor29> VC says that was a short. Next OF 1053
03:54:20 <Dave from B> Seems Will has been in LGB this morning
03:55:13 <ynpvisitor27> Will and Mara are at Fountain. He is posting times, he has cell there!
03:55:33 <Dave from B> ..
03:55:46 <ynpvisitor41> i never get cell out there thats weird
04:00:01 <ynpvisitor27> Yes, he can even send photos!
04:08:14 <Dave from B> Time to head home. Have a great day everyone!
04:10:13 <Betty> bye Dave
04:28:49 <ynpvisitor47> Strange that Will has a connection at Fountain. Something may have changed.
04:32:59 <ynpvisitor8> maybe that it is snowing?
04:33:05 <Betty> or it´s less people
04:33:27 <Betty> I thought it earlier, 8
04:34:33 <ynpvisitor8> he had cell there last week too, in better conditions
04:34:42 <ynpvisitor8> so he has a good antenna on his phone?
04:35:16 <ynpvisitor8> sorry Fountain is keeping them waiting in this weather
04:36:09 <ynpvisitor47> Whatever it is I hope it continues
04:38:11 <ynpvisitor8> Glad this weather will be moving on tomorrow
04:39:11 <ynpvisitor8> so they cleaned the inside of the sphere?
04:56:00 <Betty> Aurum
05:09:42 <ynpvisitor47> OF having a hard time getting going
05:12:19 <ynpvisitor8> not even 90 minutes yet
05:12:45 <ynpvisitor47> Last one was called a short by the VC
05:12:52 <ynpvisitor8> still no Fountain for Will and Mara
05:13:02 <ynpvisitor8> oh, well that must not have been right, the short call
05:13:43 <ynpvisitor8> can it go this late after a short?
05:14:39 <Betty> I think the last opne was not a short
05:14:47 <Betty> one
05:16:23 <ynpvisitor8> people waiting in snow/rain must not be too pleased if the posted prediction was for a short
05:16:38 <Betty> sure snow now
05:19:16 <Betty> OF
05:20:27 <lc> bet that makes a great picture. g
05:20:44 <ynpvisitor47> :)
05:28:26 <ynpvisitor8> Fountain finally erupted for Will and Mara
05:39:19 <Betty> SC ie
05:48:11 <Betty> really heavy snow now
05:53:43 <ynpvisitor48> How are we goin gto see BH or Lion?
05:57:21 <Betty> I blew away the snow for you, 48 ;-)
05:58:57 <ynpvisitor48> A Marilyn Monroe moment? Just put your lips together and?
05:59:17 <Betty> haha
05:59:41 <Betty> bububiduu
06:01:07 <ynpvisitor48> Odd how totally unimportant things become part of history.
06:05:05 <Betty> hope we did not miss Daisy in the snow
06:08:21 <Betty> Oblong?
06:11:10 <ynpvisitor48> Was not watching Saturday. Anyone seeing LC?
06:12:27 <Betty> LC is entered in GT twice yesterday
06:13:36 <ynpvisitor48> Speeking of Daisy. Is that it?
06:13:58 <Betty> hard to tell now
06:22:03 <ynpvisitor48> Will said it was Daisy
06:22:24 <Betty> nice
06:23:02 <Betty> so they are in UGB now
06:24:08 <ynpvisitor48> Must have just got there. Daisy entry at 12:11
06:24:45 <ynpvisitor48> Jet was 11:50
06:28:31 <ynpvisitor48> Well will leave you to BH, if it has not gone early this morning.
06:29:15 <Betty> I fear it was early. Bye 48
06:38:30 <Betty> Lion looks busy
07:39:09 <ynpvisitor87> Wow! It's working!

09:53:55 <ynpvisitor94> cool. thx.
09:57:01 <kcmule> b
09:57:36 <kcmule> OF 15:57
10:14:10 <ynpvisitor23> ick
10:17:52 <ynpvisitor94> cam is holding up so far today
10:17:57 <ynpvisitor94> knock on wood...
10:24:16 <ynpvisitor23> or plexiglass
10:38:45 <ynpvisitor17> Just got off phone with Mara, her and Will are trapped in the VEC. There are 6 cars off the road between OF and Madison
10:39:16 <ynpvisitor23> how does one get trapped in the VEC?
10:39:29 <ynpvisitor17> I should say taking cover
10:39:39 <ynpvisitor23> oh, ok
10:39:47 <ynpvisitor17> But man that snow is piling up fast
10:39:57 <ynpvisitor23> no surprise about the cars, people do not know how to drive in snow
10:40:18 <ynpvisitor17> Mara won't be able to make he 6am flight tomorrow, so she's hoping for the 1:35
10:40:37 <ynpvisitor23> were they leaving for Bozeman tonight?
10:40:52 <ynpvisitor17> They were going to try, and then this hit.
10:40:53 <ynpvisitor23> I bet Will would be fine driving to Bozeman
10:41:17 <ynpvisitor23> I think the storm is fairly local
10:41:38 <ynpvisitor17> We can hope
10:42:37 <ynpvisitor23> they should get on the road
10:42:43 <ynpvisitor23> drive before dark
10:43:08 <ynpvisitor17> They are staying in OF because they feel it is too dangerous right now
10:43:31 <ynpvisitor17> I would rather them do that. Even as good a driver as Will is. Better safe then sorry
10:44:55 <ynpvisitor48> 6 cars off the road! Holy Snowman!
10:45:18 <ynpvisitor17> yep. Mara said it's absolute Chaos right now
10:45:30 <ynpvisitor17> I guess the peaceful view we have is misleading
10:45:51 <ynpvisitor17> Welp
10:45:56 <ynpvisitor17> From Mara
10:46:00 <ynpvisitor17> ALL PARK ROADS CLOSED
10:46:38 <ynpvisitor48> Nothing can be done, sit back and enjoy the view! Wish i was there
10:46:42 <ynpvisitor23> well Mara and Will are the only two people there visiting with a place to sleep
10:46:53 <ynpvisitor23> or eat
10:49:50 <ynpvisitor23> it will be something they will remember
10:50:08 <ynpvisitor23> I feel for the folks that went in on a day trip
10:51:04 <ynpvisitor23> VEC closes in 10 minutes, I wonder what they will do with the people
10:52:06 <ynpvisitor48> Get out the sleeping bags!
10:52:42 <ynpvisitor23> Maybe people that work there will have to put people up
10:55:19 <ynpvisitor17> Mara says there's only a few other visitors in the VEC
10:55:26 <ynpvisitor17> but only 3 rangers on duty
10:55:29 <ynpvisitor94> how many inches are they expecting out of this?
10:56:06 <ynpvisitor17> not sure, but Mara said they've gotten over 1 in a half hour period and it shows no signs of stopping
10:56:16 <ynpvisitor94> !
10:58:53 <ynpvisitor17> Welp, there's a slight clearing.
10:58:58 <ynpvisitor17> But there's another band coming in on the radar
11:01:57 <ynpvisitor23> if they get plows out, the snow is very local
11:02:43 <ynpvisitor23> glad there are not many people left, yet hopefully the other people are not stranded on roads
11:04:43 <ynpvisitor17> LC ie
11:05:37 <ynpvisitor94> go BH!
11:08:41 <ynpvisitor17> Looks like the second band is moving in shortly.
11:11:37 <ynpvisitor87> Snow causes cancer.
11:12:31 <ynpvisitor17> Mara on thewalk I believe
11:13:19 <ynpvisitor17> or not
11:20:58 <ynpvisitor48> I think she just tried to MOON us
11:21:20 <ynpvisitor17> They are now safely inside again.
11:21:28 <ynpvisitor23> safely?
11:21:42 <ynpvisitor17> They went out, but only to get to their room.
11:21:46 <ynpvisitor23> isn't Mara flying standby? It may not be so easy to get the 1335 flight out
11:21:59 <ynpvisitor17> I guess we will see.
11:22:12 <ynpvisitor23> first they have to get out of YNP!
11:22:24 <ynpvisitor17> Yeah, well that in itself may be a challenge.
11:22:28 <ynpvisitor17> 2nd storm on the way
11:22:30 <ynpvisitor23> wonder what the fate of those people is?
11:22:49 <ynpvisitor31> Will and I were just about to leave for Norris when the weather disimproved. Multiple cars off the road between here and Madison. We will likely be staying here this evening.
11:23:03 <ynpvisitor17> Oh hi Mara
11:23:18 <ynpvisitor23> West entrance road is closed right now, as you know
11:23:25 <ynpvisitor23> so looks like you will be there
11:23:27 <ynpvisitor31> Roads are pretty much closed in the north part of the park.
11:23:51 <ynpvisitor23> BH before dark?
11:23:58 <ynpvisitor17> If we can see it
11:24:08 <ynpvisitor23> what happens to the other people there?
11:25:27 <kcmule> OF 17:25
11:26:51 <ynpvisitor31> They are being allowed to head out toward West.
11:27:16 <ynpvisitor23> oh good, Will and you are not going though?
11:29:26 <ynpvisitor31> We are not leaving this evening because weather looks better tomorrow.
11:30:57 <ynpvisitor23> good luck getting home Mara
11:36:15 <ynpvisitor17> And here's round two.
11:37:26 <ynpvisitor23> i wonder if the cars will caravan
11:37:50 <ynpvisitor23> preferably behind a plow
12:27:35 <kcmule> well maybe we wont see daisy
12:30:30 <Graham> hello. hey what happened to the cam?
12:30:32 <Graham> WSOD?
12:31:39 <ynpvisitor23> it snowed just for you Graham
12:32:24 <Graham> nice, I am sure Will and Mara are loving it
12:32:31 <Graham> too bad if you get trapped there
12:33:42 <ynpvisitor23> I would think Mara would much rather be in Bozeman right now
12:33:49 <Graham> dont think the snow is going to stay around tho
12:34:18 <ynpvisitor23> thankfully
12:34:26 <ynpvisitor23> 50 by next weekend
12:35:17 <Graham> what is her return plan?
12:35:22 <Graham> where is the snowman?
12:35:51 <ynpvisitor23> was supposed to fly out at 0630, not happening now, will hope for 1335
12:36:19 <Graham> ah, i wish her well
12:36:30 <ynpvisitor23> all up in air, flying standby, and me too, hope she gets home fine
12:37:10 <ynpvisitor23> they are indoors now I think
12:37:23 <Graham> what? its still daylight
12:37:37 <ynpvisitor23> not staying close to basin anymore
12:37:47 <ynpvisitor23> in gov't area
12:38:24 <Graham> Grand posted 1923 .... huh?
12:38:39 <Graham> and your point is ...?
12:38:52 <Graham> its still daylight
12:39:44 <ynpvisitor23> no Grand post , 1923 has not happened yet
12:39:56 <Graham> oh wait, never mind, reloaded yesterdays page
12:40:04 <ynpvisitor23> ha hahahaha
12:41:45 <ynpvisitor23> they did close all park roads for a while around 1630
12:42:06 <Kent> Right now this looks beautiful. A month from now it will be cold and bleak. Closing weekend not lookin good.
12:42:24 <ynpvisitor23> Friday and Saturday look good
12:42:39 <Kent> Fingers crossed
12:43:20 <Graham> but it will still be beautiful Kent
12:43:23 <ynpvisitor23> well now Thurs and Fri look good
12:44:54 <Kent> Still too far away for any certainty
12:45:04 <ynpvisitor23> yes, that
12:45:15 <ynpvisitor23> I just want it all to melt tomorrow
12:45:23 <Kent> :)
12:45:57 <Graham> I want to see the benches covered ..... yeah maybe on Monday 3rd tho
12:46:18 <ynpvisitor23> they can cover in December for heck's sake
12:46:42 <Kent> That would be fine with me. Let me get south of west before the blizzard
12:46:45 <Graham> yeah, they can still be covered then too
12:47:12 <Graham> ok Kent, afternoon of the 3rd
12:47:22 <Kent> Thank you!
12:48:16 <ynpvisitor23> Graham has no snow powers
12:48:42 <Kent> :(
12:48:50 <Graham> may even get into the 30s here next weekend .. brrrrrr after an 80 high midweek
12:49:44 <Kent> Wonderful fall here. I am still eating garden tomatoes
12:50:16 <ynpvisitor23> nice Kent
12:50:27 <ynpvisitor23> it was wonderful in the park, well, until TODAY
12:50:57 <Kent> I had snow at Old Faithful on October 1st, but it didn't last
12:51:20 <ynpvisitor23> it was 60+ yesterday in basin
12:51:48 <ynpvisitor13> Just an fyi for everyone, Will and Mara made a run for it during a brief window of clearing, that was about 45 minutes ago.
12:51:51 <ynpvisitor23> and just a dusting the 1st, right?
12:52:06 <ynpvisitor23> so glad to hear that 13
12:52:27 <Kent> About an inch. The ground was white.
12:54:07 <Graham> fluffy
12:54:12 <Graham> I think
12:54:18 <Kent> Thinking the same
12:54:22 <ynpvisitor23> yep
12:57:53 <Graham> see you tomorrow
12:57:55 <Kent> Night all. Hoping the cam is still with us in the morning.
