18:24:28 <ynpvisitor29> Old Faithful 0123 wc
00:11:32 <Betty> hi Graham
00:17:29 <Graham> morning. looks like the snow may be starting
00:31:03 <Kent> Good Morning/afternoon
00:31:18 <Kent> Fingers crossed for a big dump today
00:32:17 <Betty> morning Kent
00:32:32 <Graham> 2' or more?
00:33:49 <Kent> I am in favor of as much as will fall out of the sky. 2" to 4" in the forecast.
00:44:15 <Betty> OF ie
00:44:31 <Graham> a geyser
00:44:55 <Graham> 0743 start
01:03:57 <ynpvisitor75> Hi
01:04:10 <Betty> Hi
01:04:45 <ynpvisitor75> How are we today
01:05:43 <Kent> Bobcat
01:06:15 <Betty> my cam is off
01:06:29 <Kent> I am still working
01:07:16 <Kent> I probably should have said snowblower instead of bobcat.
01:16:36 <Betty> ok, short break worked
01:17:05 <Kent> I see you made it back for a bit of excitement at Beehive
01:17:23 <Kent> A big splash
01:17:58 <Betty> great. Let´s hope the big show will follow
01:18:12 <Kent> Yes
01:20:11 <Betty> lots of people on geyserhill for a winter morning
01:22:53 <Kent> I wouldn't mind a walk around the hill before breakfast
01:25:34 <Betty> either me :-)
01:44:38 <ynpvisitor31> bubbler is going at bee
01:44:54 <Kent> I have hopes
01:46:19 <Kent> May be on this side of the Firehole?
01:47:07 <ynpvisitor31> if you mean not the bubbler but the steam from the ridge above the overlook, I think you are right
01:47:32 <Kent> Yes, on the OF shield
01:48:02 <Betty> there is a steam source on this side of the river
01:48:51 <Kitt> yes
01:49:04 <Graham> i have wondered if its Teapot on this side
01:49:11 <Betty> Morning Kitt
01:49:20 <Kitt> the steam column looked closer to bee's cone
01:49:25 <Kitt> good morning
01:49:42 <Kitt> when I first got on the streaming
01:50:17 <Kitt> I see Worland isn't the only place getting light snow
01:50:30 <Kitt> Yes, it is snowing here again. Grrr
01:51:16 <Betty> so you call Indy the bubbler?
01:51:31 <Kitt> no
01:51:58 <Betty> so what is the bubbler?
01:52:01 <Kitt> during the winter there are several small holes that often bubble
01:52:48 <Betty> near BH cone?
01:53:04 <Kitt> when you stand right in front of bee on the boardwalk, there's one to the back left and to the back right
01:53:27 <Betty> ok. Thanks for the Info
01:54:00 <Kitt> there's also close to cone which is in front of bee but closer than Indy
01:54:04 <Graham> you can see the steam coming from the left side of the cone on the cam sometimes
01:54:45 <Kitt> they tell you bee hasn't erupted recently, but they can bubble for hours
01:54:50 <Betty> and that is only before BH erupt?
01:55:11 <Kitt> yes
01:55:11 <Betty> haha, just answered my question
01:55:23 <Betty> cool
01:55:35 <Kitt> I waited 6 hours one time
01:55:42 <Betty> ugh
02:00:43 <Kitt> bbl
02:00:58 <Betty> later Kitt
02:04:42 <Kitt> ugh, just checked Dave from B's weather for the next few days
02:04:55 <Kitt> I think he had better build an igloo
02:05:50 <ynpvisitor98> There was a BH reported about 12h ago.
02:06:26 <Kitt> that was on last night's chat
02:07:36 <Kitt> that is why I am kind of expecting a bee just before dark, but it has been known to occasionaly throw in a short, but not often when it is on long intervals
02:08:02 <Kitt> I was hopeful when I read about the big splash
02:10:13 <Graham> 31h single or double?
02:10:26 <Kitt> KC and IT saw what they thought was bee at 2126
02:10:43 <Kitt> last night
02:11:11 <Kitt> anyway bbl
02:12:01 <Dave from B> Who was complaining about not having any snow?
02:12:54 <Betty> Morning Dave from B
02:13:04 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty
02:13:39 <Dave from B> Only 2 more inches last night but snow in the forecast for the next 3 days
02:19:04 <Betty> OF
02:21:23 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin
02:21:37 <Kevin L> Hi
02:21:54 <Betty> Morning Kevin L
02:23:51 <Kevin L> Supposed to hit 70 here Wednesday!
02:25:29 <Dave from B> Wish I head that direction
02:25:35 <Dave from B> Wish I could
02:37:05 <Betty> Morning kc
02:43:02 <kcmule> mornin
02:43:03 <Dave from B> Hi, kc
02:43:38 <Kevin L> 17 degrees! Heat spell.
02:44:47 <Dave from B> Colder than OF again...+1F...feels like -9F in Blgs
02:45:18 <Kevin L> Some good hits on the OF seismo today
02:46:57 <Kevin L> 3.3 & 3.7 at Challis. Be interesting to see if that series of quakes has an effect on the geysers.
02:48:32 <Dave from B> Wasn't there a 4.9 in Challis recently?
02:48:48 <Kevin L> Yesterday.
02:52:03 <Betty> Go Giant
02:53:15 <Kevin L> There was a smaller one in the 90's that had a big effect on Depression, Aurum, and I think BH.
02:53:54 <Dave from B> It will be hard to see effects until we get feet on the ground
02:55:04 <Kevin L> With this snow we may not see anything today! Glad my kid went home yesterday.
03:02:56 <Dave from B> time to head out into the mess. Have a great day everyone!
03:03:24 <Betty> you too Dave
03:04:55 <Kevin L> Bye
03:14:33 <Kevin L> Lion is heating up
03:14:54 <Betty> hopefully
03:31:07 <ynpvisitor10> hey

04:28:35 <Betty> Lion
04:29:40 <Betty> turn around, guys at bee
04:31:22 <ynpvisitor92> nice of Lion to show up
04:35:57 <Betty> wonder how long we will be able to see the hill
04:43:22 <ynpvisitor76> no Grand?
04:43:39 <ynpvisitor76> or visavility too bad
04:43:51 <Betty> too bad to see
04:44:03 <ynpvisitor76> ah
05:21:53 <Craig> Minnesota has officially frozen over, just in time for school to start :P
05:44:08 <Betty> Lion
05:44:20 <ynpvisitor92> Lion
05:45:05 <Kent> Thanks Betty. I must be frozen and didn't notice. I will refresh.
05:45:50 <Kent> Much better.
05:46:11 <Betty> :-)
06:32:09 <ynpvisitor92> 1332 is VEC OF prediction

06:47:21 <Betty> Lion
06:52:16 <Betty> OF
06:53:29 <ynpvisitor...> Persistent Beekeeper. I hope he/she and the rest of us are rewarded soon.
06:54:37 <ynpvisitor71> I think its still too early for BH only at 16hr
06:54:46 <ynpvisitor...> :(
06:57:13 <ynpvisitor92> oh, BH was last night? Yes, 16 hours may be too soon
07:12:17 <Betty> Hello Micah
07:12:43 <Betty> how are you?
07:12:45 <Micah> Hello Betty
07:12:57 <Micah> I'm doing fine. Just settling in for a quiet Sunday.
07:13:42 <Betty> mine is already over. Back to work tomorrow
07:19:15 <Betty> Time to head out. Night all
07:19:30 <ynpvisitor...> Night Betty
07:52:29 <kcmule> aurum
08:02:56 <kcmule> OF 15:02
08:40:17 <Graham> Bills redskins game isn't being televised today?
08:50:35 <kcmule> not in this universe
09:01:27 <Kitt> weather actually looks worse in Yellowstone than Worland for once
09:01:35 <Kitt> we have sun
09:02:34 <Graham> nice, get out the sunscreen
09:02:58 <Maureen> FINALLY snowing
09:03:15 <Maureen> snow globe snow outside now, coming straight down
09:03:17 <Kitt> as long as you keep it on your side Maureen
09:03:26 <Maureen> ha ha, Graham wants it
09:03:31 <Maureen> in Yellowstone
09:03:49 <Maureen> we do need it here, we are lacking, I would rather not have brown skies all summer
09:03:52 <Kitt> so far I think Billings and Worland have more
09:03:59 <Maureen> much rather have winter in winter than in spring
09:04:15 <Maureen> they do
09:04:25 <Maureen> this could change things
09:04:35 <Kitt> even with the sun it isn't melting here
09:04:39 <Maureen> almost all the storms have missed West and the basin
09:05:09 <Maureen> it has only reached 20 here
09:05:18 <Maureen> hopefully warmer air is coming
09:06:57 <Graham> its a brutal 63F here
09:06:59 <Maureen> the cold is finally moving east, I am glad
09:07:08 <Maureen> did it ever get to 75?
09:08:02 <Graham> dont think so
09:09:24 <Kitt> I think we are almost to 20 degrees here
09:09:51 <Kitt> these people are funny
09:10:04 <Kitt> they are moving down wind of Old Faithful
09:11:12 <Kitt> nice splash from bee
09:12:29 <Maureen> is your roof all taken care of Kitt?
09:12:58 <Kitt> snow hasn't been melting, nothing to take care of yet
09:13:18 <Kitt> no, Bill hasn't been on the roof in a month or so
09:13:48 <Maureen> when it warms up, that will be important
09:14:19 <Kitt> I wish someone would send us 40 degree temps for about a week
09:14:41 <Maureen> January thaw, it happens a lot here…just not sure it will happen this year
09:14:54 <Kitt> we've been doing good if we actually make it to 20
09:15:25 <Maureen> 20 here is the highest it has been in some time
09:15:51 <Kitt> we've been in the negative zone a lot
09:16:07 <Maureen> yeah, you have had West like weather.
09:16:14 <Maureen> common for us
09:16:57 <Maureen> if the park does get a bunch of snow, it will be interesting to see what happens on Sylvan.
09:17:40 <Maureen> such a cold, sugar snow, base
09:24:06 <Kitt> bbl
09:29:34 <Kent> It looks like the weather peeps have upped the snow totals at Old Faithful through Tuesday. Let it snow.
09:30:01 <Graham> how much?
09:30:47 <Kent> 10" to 22"
09:31:04 <Graham> oohhh nice
09:31:17 <Graham> i see the garbage cleanup crew is back
09:31:18 <Kent> Goes for the coyote too
09:36:34 <Maureen> nice OF
10:27:19 <kcmule> grand
10:27:19 <ynpvisitor68> Grand
10:27:28 <ynpvisitor68> yeah
10:27:51 <ynpvisitor68> 1727 wc
10:28:32 <Maureen> nice before dark
10:30:13 <ynpvisitor68> must be a pretty good breeze
10:32:42 <ynpvisitor68> Penta?
10:35:00 <ynpvisitor68> never mind
10:36:28 <ynpvisitor68> 2nds please Grand
10:38:50 <ynpvisitor68> hopefully Beehive works its way back into daylight
