01:21:50 <ynpvisitor...> A steamy morning with humps
01:31:08 <Kent> One to three inches mixed with some rain. Not exactly an East Coast forecast for the UGB :(
01:35:18 <CO Dave> Nope on the forecast for UGB. I'm headed to the East Coast tomorrow... We'll see how that goes.
01:38:14 <Dave from B> Morning earthlings
01:40:16 <ynpvisitor...> Morning fishmonger Dave
01:41:15 <Dave from B> Hi, Kent
01:41:33 <Kent> Dave, have a look at Norris when you get a chance. Whirligig has started misbehaving again.
01:43:12 <Paul. L> Morning Dave

01:45:51 <ynpvisitor14> yeah something happened there
01:46:44 <Dave from B> Kent, any truth to the rumor you are hijacking the geyser coach and making Jim go to Norris?:)
01:47:06 <ynpvisitor14> wow i think that is one of the biggest herds i have seen at OF this winter
01:48:34 <Dave from B> They're coming over for the group photo.
01:52:15 <ynpvisitor78> OF 0852
01:52:28 <Jenna> hahaha
01:52:45 <Jenna> that is an awesome view
01:53:11 <Kevin L> Bison won't need a shower tonight
02:03:56 <Jake> Dave spotted BH last night
02:04:59 <ynpvisitor14> Jake do you still calculate the whirligig E times?
02:06:31 <Jake> it's on the list. I haven't since the reactivatin
02:08:53 <ynpvisitor14> it would be awesome to see the intervals
02:11:09 <DaveM> I noted taht a questionable Grand was posted this morning. It was still quite dark so I can understand teh confusion but it was Daisy.
02:12:19 <ynpvisitor51> thanks DaveM
02:12:44 <DaveM> Also, I posted a short capture of the bison herd passin OF this morning. It is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3r6DCrNU90

03:04:31 <ynpvisitor95> good timing for me

03:40:08 <CC> Hi Everyone
03:40:30 <CC> Snow here is teribble!
03:40:32 <Dave from B> Hi, CC
03:40:38 <CC> Hey Dave
03:40:53 <CC> Still coming down hard.
03:41:05 <Kevin L> Looked nasty on the TV CC.
03:41:36 <CC> The TV was not deceiving.
03:42:01 <CC> To top is off, the surface under the snow is all ice.
03:42:18 <Dave from B> You have had a long 3 weeks
03:42:40 <Kevin L> Strange. My peach tree is in full bloom and my apple tree probably will be next week.
03:43:02 <Kevin L> Amazing how different the weather can be.
03:43:07 <CC> Forget driving....snow is piled so high at thr corners that you can not see and have to edge out into the crossroads.
03:43:24 <CC> Very dangerous.
03:43:40 <Kevin L> Ugh!
03:44:01 <CC> Unbelieveable Kevin...you planning on canning?
03:45:00 <Betty> morning all
03:45:09 <CC> hi Betty
03:45:10 <Kevin L> We do some canning. Also do some jam.
03:45:12 <Jake> just another 50 degree F day in February in Montana
03:45:14 <Kevin L> Hi Betty
03:45:40 <CC> I am not laughing out loud Jake
03:45:44 <Jake> Kevin, would you rather be canning or camming?
03:46:15 <Kevin L> I like the camming best. Canning is a lot of work!
03:46:36 <Kevin L> We do usually make a batch or two of fresh peach ice cream.
03:46:43 <CC> Jake temps here are in the teens and predicted to get colder,.
03:46:50 <Betty> yummy
03:47:29 <Kevin L> I am already at 70 and it isn't even 1000 here yet.
03:49:18 <CC> Just checking in for now. See you later,
03:49:34 <Kevin L> Good luck!
03:49:49 <Kevin L> Hope your power stays on!
03:53:00 <Will B> yeah :***:
03:57:13 <ynpvisitor51> ***
03:58:01 <ynpvisitor51> :***:
03:58:16 <ynpvisitor51> :)
04:02:18 <Jake> strong wind makes for a good view on Improbable
04:08:41 <Will B> Just :cloud: and /// here in bzn
04:14:27 <ynpvisitor94> an inch and a half of wet snowman snow in West
04:14:34 <ynpvisitor94> trying to rain now, too warm
04:30:01 <ynpvisitor51> .
04:47:49 <ynpvisitor51> ,
04:52:33 <ynpvisitor51> .
05:12:26 <ynpvisitor68> Very nice youtube of bison going by OF eruption this morning. Thanks DaveM!
05:12:54 <Kevin L> Kitt will like that one
05:12:57 <ynpvisitor68> Any way that video could be attached to the GT entry for the same non-geyser event?
05:14:18 <ynpvisitor68> I sure hope that video gets lots of hits from YNP lovers.
05:17:14 <Kevin L> Hope OF goes before bus duty.
05:18:49 <Jake> the video needs more bigfoot to get lots of views
05:20:13 <ynpvisitor94> would someone post it again here?
05:20:26 <ynpvisitor94> OF
05:20:55 <ynpvisitor95> fluffy
05:21:52 <ynpvisitor94> those folks must not have been impressed
05:22:19 <Kitt> I see Beehive is nocturnal again
05:22:41 <ynpvisitor94> maybe it did something in between
05:23:02 <Kevin L> :p
05:23:34 <Kevin L> Bison got OF shower today Kitt.
05:23:47 <Kitt> excellent
05:23:51 <ynpvisitor94> and they will post it for you again here....
05:23:52 <Kitt> did they run
05:24:29 <Kevin L> They moved out of the way. DaveM posted video somewhere.
05:24:36 <Kitt> the sun has finally melted enough snow that I am beginning to see our yellow grass
05:25:23 <Kitt> I'm home for lunch, so I'd better go eat
05:25:41 <Betty> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3r6DCrNU90
05:25:58 <Kitt> sure hope the yucky weather stays on that side of the mountains
05:26:01 <Betty> that´s the link
05:26:09 <Kitt> it is sunny and lovely here
05:26:19 <Kitt> thanks I'll check it out
05:26:50 <Betty> had to search a bit, 94
05:27:28 <ynpvisitor94> thanks Betty!
05:27:41 <Betty> yw
05:29:42 <Kitt> wow that is awesome
05:30:10 <Kitt> I've seen a few bison near Old Faithful when it erupts but have not seen a herd like that
05:30:32 <Kevin L> It was fun.
05:31:25 <Kitt> we had a group trample past Grand (through the front edge of its water) then Turban started
05:31:39 <Kitt> luckily Grand didn't erupt on that cycle
05:31:52 <ynpvisitor94> I love how they all follow the same line
05:32:05 <ynpvisitor94> a little path in the snow
05:32:29 <Kitt> we had a very large crowd of people and we were trying to figure out which parts of the boardwalk to hide under if the herd charged
05:32:41 <ynpvisitor94> I have seen them jump onto the boardwalk near the VENT sign with a huge crowd there
05:33:12 <Kitt> thanks for the show
05:33:15 <Kitt> off to eat
05:33:23 <Kitt> have a good day everyone
05:34:05 <Betty> bye Kitt
05:44:05 <Jenna> ..
05:49:45 <Jake> Daisy
05:50:35 <Kevin L> I could barely see it.
05:52:38 <Kevin L> Bus Duty brb
06:10:55 <Kevin L> back
06:32:24 <Dave from B> I'm back by I'm not even sure if was ever here to begin with.
06:33:02 <Kevin L> Maybe that is why you type like you do.
06:33:21 <Dave from B> Could be Kevin
06:40:14 <Jake> Aurum
06:40:42 <Kevin L> ty Jake
06:40:52 <Betty> yay
06:40:57 <ynpvisitor94> NICE
06:41:30 <ynpvisitor94> see Kevin, good you came back
06:41:32 <Kevin L> I was looking at OF and would have missed it!
06:41:46 <Jake> yw Kevin
06:41:56 <ynpvisitor...> I did miss it :( :(
06:42:19 <Jake> sure happens quickly
06:43:23 <ynpvisitor...> bison running
06:43:33 <Jake> bison running into the meadow
06:43:50 <ynpvisitor...> Caldera is going to blow!
06:44:02 <Betty> lol
06:44:14 <Dave from B> Still looking for my first geyser today
06:44:36 <lt> you've missed all the OFs, Dave?
06:44:46 <Dave from B> I think so
06:44:54 <Jake> there's one coming shortly, just hold on a little longer
06:45:01 <ynpvisitor94> at least 10 Bigfeet about too...
06:45:23 <Dave from B> haha 94
06:45:26 <ynpvisitor21> Dave needs a geyser fix. BH at 13 hours
06:45:31 <Dave from B> What a ridiculous post that was
06:45:55 <ynpvisitor94> was very sad that Billings Gazette picked it up, wtf
06:46:00 <Dave from B> How's Lion looking?
06:46:25 <Betty> like a cone
06:46:35 <lt> a slightly steamy cone
06:46:37 <Kevin L> Lion was doing some heavy steam about an hour ago.
06:46:38 <Jake> Lion had a big splashing event ~10 minutes ago. Lion, Castle, Grand and Beehive yet before dark!
06:46:48 <Dave from B> I don't have a lot of respect for the Gazette..especailly after rasining my rates from105 to over 230 for 6 months in the past year. It's ridiculous.
06:47:03 <Dave from B> haha Betty!:)
06:47:35 <Betty> yw, Dave :-p
06:47:55 <ynpvisitor21> No one is buying papers. They need to make $ somehow.
06:48:19 <Dave from B> Not many advertise with them anymore because of their rates either.
06:48:35 <ynpvisitor21> Wait, that does not work. Charge more for advertiser because they are selling fewer papers.
06:48:46 <Jake> those are ad rates or subscriber rates?
06:50:29 <Jake> OF 1350
06:50:47 <lt> LOOK DAVE A GEYSER
06:51:17 <ynpvisitor21> He had to go take care of a customer]
06:51:32 <Jake> I clicked on the Gazette's bigfoot story, I saw that it was their most viewed article too so that does not provide them with a good incentive to not run stories like it
06:52:52 <Jake> 2 minutes into OF and the crowd is 20% of what it was
06:53:11 <Jake> 3 minutes now, everyone's leaving
06:56:04 <Dave from B> :( Missed OF again
06:56:49 <Kevin L> We may get an Anenome.
06:57:29 <ynpvisitor21> I am into my second year of not watching of.
06:58:45 <ynpvisitor51> .
06:59:26 <ynpvisitor21> BH looks purky
06:59:53 <Kevin L> Don't hold yor breath.
07:08:16 <ynpvisitor51> .
07:08:20 <ynpvisitor51> .
07:13:53 <ynpvisitor54> That is sad news about the Bigfoot article
07:14:35 <Dave from B> sure is, 54...doesn't say much for journalism.
07:14:38 <ynpvisitor54> and in defense of tourists today, it is nasty out, drizzling a cold cold rain
07:14:48 <ynpvisitor21> Yep, definitely Bigfoot. I have seen their tracks. They have web feet, not like a duck, more like a lawn chair.
07:15:03 <ynpvisitor54> 35 here in West, it was 42 a few hours ago, whack day
07:15:10 <Kevin L> bus duty brb
07:16:25 <ynpvisitor21> Dave, you could put in an add saying you have a special on Bigfoot and will wrap it for free in the gazette.
07:17:06 <Dave from B> haha
07:18:00 <ynpvisitor54> so now it has rained a day at least in Dec, Jan and now Feb, weirdest winter ever
07:18:04 <Dave from B> My wife and I were talking last night. Albertson's is doing ANOTHER Monoply promo. We were thinking..."Buy your seafood here and you can play your own game of monpoly at home:)
07:19:00 <ynpvisitor21> The Oragonian has the distinction of being referred to as the Fish Wrapper. They gave up real journalism long ago. It is now just a big editorial paper.
07:20:12 <ynpvisitor54> the snow that is left here is very rotten
07:20:29 <ynpvisitor54> I am almost surprised the boardwalk is not falling apart more
07:20:42 <ynpvisitor21> Eat fish, the real fast food. Spend more time with your family instead of cooking.
07:21:56 <Dave from B> 21, that's a good one...I like it
07:22:24 <ynpvisitor21> Do you have recipe sheets for your specials?
07:23:21 <ynpvisitor21> Lunch os over, time to go do things.
07:31:54 <ynpvisitor26> any girls on here
07:33:59 <ynpvisitor29> Giantess?
07:34:38 <ynpvisitor54> haha
07:34:38 <Kevin L> Back
07:34:39 <ynpvisitor26> he,llo kevin
07:39:28 <Jake> steam from Castle
07:40:41 <Betty> water from Castle :-D
07:43:38 <Kevin L> You looking Dave?
07:52:44 <Betty> guess not
07:53:17 <Kevin L> If he is he is very quiet.
08:08:24 <Dave from B> Not looking...was downstairs answering contractor questions for the umpteenth time today.
08:10:01 <Kevin L> Sounds fishy to me
08:15:20 <lt> maybe LC is feeling bad for Dave? hard to tell
08:22:12 <Kevin L> BTW before I forget again The Northern Pacific line to Gardiner branched off the mainline at Livingston. It went through Limekiln Spur, Briebin, Trail Creek, Chicory, Emigrant, Daileys Miner Sphinx, Corwin Springs (Cinnabar), Electric, and to Gardiner, a total of 56 miles.
08:22:40 <lt> so. taking bets now on whether BH will go.
08:23:05 <Betty> time to head out. Night all
08:23:12 <Jenna> nite Betty
08:23:14 <lt> g'night Betty!
08:23:17 <Kevin L> Add a prop bet for a view of it from the cam.
08:23:35 <Kevin L> Auf weidergood night!
08:23:36 <Jenna> I'm thinking BH will be after dark, which at this rate will be soon.
08:24:10 <ynpvisitor94> it has gone from snow to rain, to slop to rain and back to snow...well, kind of snow. ICK
08:24:26 <Kevin L> Looks like OF is ie.
08:25:30 <Kevin L> Did I mention my peach tree is in full bloom?
08:26:42 <ynpvisitor94> that must smell so good
08:27:28 <Kevin L> I am waiting for the lemon. That makes the whole yard and house smell good. Getting buds on the grapefruit tree now.
08:27:54 <ynpvisitor94> nice
08:28:49 <Kevin L> The hummingbirds love the lemon tree. I get about 20 to 30 of them hanging around it.
08:30:05 <ynpvisitor94> sounds pretty good right now , watching hummingbirds
08:31:13 <Kevin L> Had some nest in the area. I thought there were moths by my porch light, but they were tiny hummingbirds!
08:37:05 <ynpvisitor94> not sure I have ever seen a nest
08:37:40 <Kevin L> They are very tine. About 2" in diameter.
08:38:11 <ynpvisitor94> they do not sit on the nest do they?
08:38:22 <ynpvisitor94> I cannot imagine them at rest for that long
08:39:58 <Kevin L> It is amazing the birds that I have seen here at the house for it being in the desert. Everything form hawks, to roadrunners, doves, phesant, and there are a whole lot of quail.
08:40:33 <ynpvisitor94> neat
08:40:51 <ynpvisitor94> where was the fire, the one that destroyed 40 homes? North of you, right?
08:41:19 <Kevin L> I keep a good sized bramble patch for the quail to hang out in where cats can't get them. The tiny ones are so cute.
08:41:27 <Kevin L> I think that was Reno.
08:41:55 <ynpvisitor94> preotecting the birds, so thoughtful of you
08:42:06 <ynpvisitor94> I did not realize it was that far north
08:42:19 <Graham> hello ... woah whi is the view so white?
08:42:23 <Kevin L> Not much to burn here but rocks.
08:42:38 <Kevin L> To hide geysers from you Graham!
08:42:49 <ynpvisitor94> looks are deceving Graham
08:43:05 <ynpvisitor94> it has gotten white and bared off about 3 times already today
08:43:19 <Graham> ok, was bare whenever I looked
08:43:49 <Kevin L> Been an interesting day for sure.
08:43:53 <ynpvisitor94> the bison video it is snowier than this
08:44:06 <ynpvisitor94> I wish it would go back to rain so we could see Grand
08:44:48 <Kevin L> Be interesting to see what BH does now.
08:44:55 <ynpvisitor94> Dave M posted a bison herd on a stroll
08:45:03 <Graham> we want snow now tho
08:45:03 <ynpvisitor94> while OF was erupting
08:45:27 <Kevin L> Loved the way they scattered when the water hit them.
08:46:18 <Graham> thats fun, will have to find the video
08:46:37 <Graham> Lion is due too
08:46:45 <Kevin L> Someone posted it earlier on the chat log.
08:46:54 <ynpvisitor94> twice on chat now
08:53:20 <kc (working)> wasnt castle ie earlier?
08:53:38 <Graham> probably
08:54:26 <Graham> looks like it was
08:55:34 <kc (working)> thought i saw water and a note posted here on chat but was busy on a call
08:56:17 <Graham> 1440 per Betty
08:57:39 <Graham> and now we can see
09:00:38 <Graham> nice, watched the Bison video. send them over to Bee now
09:21:54 <Graham> lion
09:21:59 <lt> Lion, looks like
09:24:18 <Graham> should get one more before dark if the snow lets us see it
09:26:04 <Dave from B> Hey..a geyser
09:28:58 <Kevin L> Finally paid attention Dave?
09:29:36 <Dave from B> Yep..I was finally here for water
09:29:42 <ynpvisitor94> congrats Dave
09:30:03 <ynpvisitor94> good thing too, as Grand may not be visible
09:30:37 <Dave from B> Becca's 3rd game in 4 days starts at 530 pm
09:31:23 <ynpvisitor94> that is a lot
09:31:24 <Graham> go Becca
09:31:26 <ynpvisitor94> of games
09:31:35 <ynpvisitor94> I thought they had to space them out more
09:34:03 <Dave from B> Yes, and they play tomorrow as well.
09:34:10 <Dave from B> This is highly unusual
09:34:22 <Dave from B> Her team is down to 8 players
09:34:35 <ynpvisitor94> even worse
09:34:43 <ynpvisitor94> teenagers need rest
09:34:49 <Dave from B> They finished an exciting game Saturday. They trailed by 6 with 3:30 to go and won
09:34:50 <Kevin L> Lot of playing time for sure.
09:34:51 <ynpvisitor94> I hope they have a good game though
09:35:08 <ynpvisitor94> glad it is at home
09:35:12 <Dave from B> They are seeking revenge tonight. Playing a team they lost to a couple weeks ago.
09:35:22 <Kevin L> It helps if you quit breaking her nose.
09:35:36 <ynpvisitor94> when is the season over?
09:35:55 <Dave from B> Season ends 5 minutes before we heat to WEst for Gazing Snowcoach.
09:36:02 <Dave from B> heat = head
09:36:11 <ynpvisitor94> wow,no tourneys?
09:36:18 <ynpvisitor94> maybe not for JV
09:36:26 <Kevin L> Hope it doesn't go into OT.
09:36:31 <Dave from B> Only tourneys for varsity team...she plays on Sophomore team
09:36:34 <ynpvisitor94> I sure hope you do not have a day like this one
09:36:58 <Dave from B> I'm hoping OF gets a few feet of snow before we get there
09:37:13 <ynpvisitor94> well that is not going to happen
09:37:18 <ynpvisitor94> no snow in forecast
09:38:35 <Dave from B> Have faith 94!:)
09:38:50 <Graham> you are going on the 1st, right?
09:39:09 <Dave from B> Yep
09:39:28 <ynpvisitor94> reality is sometimes not what we want Dave
09:39:44 <ynpvisitor94> streets bare and RAIN are quite unusual for Feb
09:40:10 <Graham> they would love that in Boston now
09:40:20 <ynpvisitor94> yes, I bet they would
09:40:32 <Graham> how is CC doing?
09:40:55 <ynpvisitor94> you may end up going on wheeled vehicles instead of a coach, though I guess Jim was planning on the fat tire coach anyway
09:41:11 <ynpvisitor94> she checked in this morning, check the log
09:41:25 <Graham> k
09:41:37 <Kevin L> CC was on this morning. Sort of trapped in her house, but OK otherwise.
09:41:52 <Graham> hig in the teens forecast here on Sunday
09:41:54 <ynpvisitor94> I popped in just as she was leaving, kevin may know....hey, there is his report
09:42:02 <ynpvisitor94> 40's here
09:43:27 <Kevin L> I kicked the AC on in the depot this afternoon.
09:43:39 <Graham> glad she is ok, but it has been a big lot of snow all over the place there
09:43:57 <Kevin L> Low 80s right now.
09:44:36 <Graham> ready for houseguests Kevin?
09:45:17 <Kevin L> It will be a while but it will sneak up sooner than I expect.
09:45:19 <ynpvisitor94> road trip!
09:45:35 <ynpvisitor94> oh, I thought Graham meant us!
09:47:11 <Kevin L> I am afraid the heat is going to wake up the snakes and that will put an end to the Rainbow Canyon trips until October
09:48:23 <Graham> you can go on a roadtrip too 94
09:48:36 <Kent> Change in Xanterra cancellation policy. Now $15 for each and every change within 30 days of arrival.
09:49:09 <Kevin L> Good to know. I was expecting something like that to happen.
09:49:20 <ynpvisitor94> YIPPEE
09:49:27 <ynpvisitor94> long time in coming
09:49:34 <Dave from B> Thanks, Kent. Not surprising
09:49:45 <ynpvisitor94> now the people that hold cabins all summer may think better of it
09:50:10 <ynpvisitor94> only fees for changes? not cancellations?
09:50:17 <Dave from B> Yep....we affect most gazers
09:50:34 <Dave from B> we = will
09:50:46 <Kent> Both from my reading of the email
09:50:48 <Dave from B> Time to head out. Have a good evening everyone!
09:50:48 <ynpvisitor94> too many gazers took advantage of no fees, it was very unfair what folks were doing
09:50:53 <Kevin L> I would assume a cancellation would be a change.
09:50:54 <ynpvisitor94> GO BECCA
09:51:08 <lt> riverside, maybe?
09:51:37 <ynpvisitor94> I agree Kent, yet if someone is there, and leaves after 15 days yet has it booked for 30, I wonder what happens then...
09:52:55 <Kent> Karen may be able to enlighten us here in a while. Change doesn't start until this summer and beyond.
09:53:33 <Kent> Or Will since he is directly in a position to know.
09:53:46 <Will B> 94 there is no charge
09:53:58 <ynpvisitor94> oh, too bad
09:54:09 <ynpvisitor94> thanks for info though
09:54:09 <Will B> just check out with the desk before 11am on the day you are leaving
09:54:31 <Graham> who wants to leave early anyway?
09:54:44 <Will B> if you are wanting to leave for a few days and then come back make sure to tell them that before they do the checkout
09:54:58 <ynpvisitor94> I can name a few folks...they sign up for whole summer almost
09:55:24 <ynpvisitor94> because there are no penalties for doing so
09:55:25 <Kevin L> I had to once and told them when I checked in. They just told me to keep the room and they would release it when I left.
09:55:45 <ynpvisitor94> time to go.
09:56:12 <Graham> doers seem a bit silly since they sell out most of the season
09:57:27 <Graham> wonder if they will do the same thing for the tour blocks of rooms
09:57:45 <Will B> to my knowledge the lodge was full every night
09:57:48 <Will B> last summer
09:57:57 <Kevin L> I wish they had a list you could sign up fo when someone cancels. I could use another cabin this year but it will be tought to get now.
09:58:19 <Will B> that would be a pain in the butt to manage
09:58:51 <Kevin L> It still would be nice!
09:59:03 <Graham> just need to automate it thru GT Will
09:59:47 <Will B> no
09:59:52 <Graham> could also have predictions for the likelihood of getting a room
10:00:12 <Will B> 0.0001%
10:00:46 <Graham> of course this now means the cancellation flurry will be30 days before checkin too
10:00:49 <Kevin L> I would think a computer could handle the task.
10:01:19 <Graham> I am sure Jake will have it up and running before the season opens
10:02:05 <Kent> The humps have arrived back
10:03:25 <Kevin L> Doggies!
10:05:07 <Jake> I started working on an automated Xanterra open room checker then Xanterra added a file to their website that says don't do that
10:05:42 <Jake> I still might should do it though
10:05:52 <Graham> haha
10:06:00 <Kent> Will, before I left the Snow Lodge I asked about Frontiers with just 1 double bed. There are two.
10:06:00 <kc (working)> i found you can bookmark an open room search for specified dates
10:06:59 <Jake> their website is quite a mess, but it's very easy to hack around and get information
10:07:38 <Graham> it does have a crappy user interface
10:07:43 <Jake> it makes no effort to hide information or obscure it, it doesn't seem very professionally made
10:08:13 <Graham> but as long as it gives me the room i want i dont care
10:08:23 <Graham> guess i better check my reservations now
10:08:27 <kc (working)> personally i love dismissing the 'your stay overlaps a sold out date' box 20x a day
10:08:30 <Jake> I have no problem with gazers blocking the whole summer if there was no penalty
10:10:04 <Graham> i am sure you have that automated kc
10:10:41 <kc (working)> yes i automatically click it and make it go away
10:31:35 <ynpvisitor74> any Turban sightings?
10:32:18 <Graham> we will be lucky to have a Lion sighting
10:33:43 <ynpvisitor74> 2 Grizzlies with collars out and about in GYE
10:34:14 <Graham> nice
10:34:24 <ynpvisitor74> too early
10:42:17 <ynpvisitor74> hope Lion is not one and done
10:43:16 <ynpvisitor74> there we go
10:43:23 <ynpvisitor74> turn around tourist
10:47:32 <ynpvisitor74> are you really not looking for Grand at all?
10:47:46 <Graham> nope
10:52:46 <Graham> Oblong
11:06:50 <ynpvisitor74> under 6 hour Grand interval this morning. We might have missed it
11:13:29 <Graham> probably went during the snow
11:18:19 <Graham> goodnight
11:39:37 <kcmule> OF
12:57:19 <ynpvisitor29> hi
