23:57:27 <Dave from B> OF 0657ie
00:48:48 <Paul L.> Morning
00:49:00 <Dave from B> Morning Paul L.
01:05:46 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin L
01:05:59 <Kevin L> Hi Dave
01:21:52 <ynpvisitor35> .
01:25:16 <Kent> I see we didn't get the hoped for two feet of snow :(
01:25:31 <Dave from B> Was that last night?:)
01:26:17 <Kent> Last time I looked at the cam yesterday there was a semi-blizzard in progress.
01:26:22 <Kent> I had hopes
01:26:57 <ynpvisitor95> Maybe CC can send us some.
01:28:10 <Kent> The weather just isn't fair :(
01:29:02 <ynpvisitor35> .
01:34:16 <Kent> OF 0833
01:48:24 <ynpvisitor19> Oblong ?
01:51:46 <ynpvisitor19> I think Oblong was Turban
02:05:57 <Dave from B> Belated Good morning Kent, kc, Jenna
02:06:16 <kc (working)> mornin
02:06:22 <Jenna> morning
02:15:48 <kc (working)> oblong i reckon. think gt is offline this mornin
02:27:10 <ynpvisitor35> maintenance on GT
02:27:46 <ynpvisitor50> Doggies at Lion
02:35:09 <Jake> GT will probably be down most of the day today
02:35:37 <Jake> GoDaddy has suspended the account for going over the limit on database size
02:35:55 <Jake> I'm limited to 1GB
02:36:05 <ynpvisitor...> Nice view on cam right now.
02:36:26 <Jake> and with recent addition of historical logger data, the database is over 3.5GB
02:39:22 <Kevin L> That isn't good!
02:39:40 <ynpvisitor...> Ask the Association or Foundation or USGS/YVO for a small grant? I would mention NPS but they are spending their excess cash on asking the public how the "feel" about science.
02:39:56 <ynpvisitor35> better call paul :P
02:40:53 <Jake> Paul T who runs this chat has offered his server for hosting. Today's events will expedite that process
02:40:57 <Kent> Don't wnat to be snarky as a number :)
02:41:21 <Jake> where is the NPS asking how people feel about science?
02:41:40 <Kent> I'll find the press releas for you
02:46:49 <Kent> Can't find it. About a month ago the park announced it was hiring someone to coordinate public input on management issues. You could ping the PR people if you are interested
02:48:59 <Jake> coordinate public input or just run general PR spin so YNP Facebook page isn't overrun with KILL ALL THE WOLVES and Y U KILL BISON? commens?
02:49:07 <Jake> Aurum
02:49:17 <Jake> 0949
02:49:19 <kc (working)> yep
02:49:42 <ynpvisitor...> I caught this one!
02:50:44 <ynpvisitor24> so GT is not down for maintenance?
02:50:58 <Kevin L> It just couldn't wait for my shift!
02:51:57 <ynpvisitor...> Perhaps it will try again around 1430?
02:52:21 <Kevin L> Probably 1410
02:52:49 <ynpvisitor...> OK. I'll be around
02:52:54 <Jake> GT is down for maintenance
02:53:13 <ynpvisitor24> all day?
02:54:22 <ynpvisitor24> anyone know if BH was seen last night?
02:54:59 <ynpvisitor24> OF
02:55:12 <Jake> not all day, back up in the next hour
02:55:15 <Jake> hopefully
02:55:17 <ynpvisitor24> ty
02:55:42 <ynpvisitor35> .
02:56:06 <Kevin L> BH was not listed this morning.
02:56:12 <ynpvisitor24> ty
02:56:31 <ynpvisitor24> yesterday it was not listed until almost 9
02:58:23 <Jenna> why does running after the coyote seem like a bad idea
03:01:06 <Ryan(lab)> Bison or people at Depression
03:03:22 <Kent> "Yellowstone has recently hired a social scientist to learn more about public attitudes and perceptions on key issues"
03:04:50 <Ryan(lab)> oh boy....
03:05:45 <Kevin L> That reminds me of a country western song:
03:06:05 <Jake> thanks Kent, YNP has been releasing some science/perception videos of late
03:07:08 <Ryan(lab)>
03:07:17 <Ryan(lab)> Anyone feel like being terrified for our futures?
03:07:45 <Kevin L> That is one thing about being old. You don't have that long to worry.
03:08:12 <Ryan(lab)> lol
03:08:16 <Ryan(lab)> or not lol
03:09:06 <Kevin L> First thing you do in the morning is check the obit pages for your firends.
03:09:42 <Ryan(lab)> :C
03:09:58 <Ryan(lab)> I dont want to start my morning thinking abou THAT
03:12:01 <Jake> GT is back up
03:12:26 <Kevin L> TY Jake
03:13:21 <Jake> electronic data logger data will not be available for the time being
03:14:46 <Jake> probably not for the next couple of weeks
03:14:54 <Jake> BH?
03:14:58 <Ryan(lab)> INDy
03:15:04 <Ryan(lab)> BH
03:15:06 <Jake> no indy
03:15:07 <Ryan(lab)> BH 1015
03:15:24 <Ryan(lab)> Wow
03:15:33 <Ryan(lab)> I see Indy on the cam and dont see it in basin ;)
03:15:35 <kc (working)> well hello
03:16:27 <ynpvisitor...> Beautiful!
03:16:40 <Ryan(lab)> Very nice!
03:17:12 <Kevin L> Very nice one. Too bad no notice
03:17:15 <ynpvisitor33> oooo pretty
03:17:56 <Ryan(lab)> Who sends the texts? thats a good one :)
03:18:11 <Kevin L> That was me.
03:18:18 <Ryan(lab)> Kudos, I liked it!
03:18:41 <ynpvisitor33> Looks like a beautiful day in the basin.
03:19:12 <ynpvisitor92> There's a beautiful Geyser there too
03:19:26 <Ryan(lab)> It's beautiful. All of it. :)
03:19:29 <ynpvisitor33> That too.
03:21:13 <ynpvisitor...> Ryan. A terrific video. Drape a rug over that critter and the BFC would adopt it.
03:21:41 <Ryan(lab)> That would scare me even more!
03:31:30 <Dave from B> ..
03:31:35 <Dave from B> Did I miss anything?
03:32:03 <Kevin L> No Dave. Nothing at all happened.
03:38:17 <ynpvisitor...> Daisy 1038 ie
03:39:17 <Ryan(lab)> Anyone here familiar with the technicalities of film? Specifically the colors of film?
03:41:15 <ynpvisitor74> was there really BH at 1016?
03:41:42 <Kevin L> There was indeed.
03:41:56 <ynpvisitor74> glad you saw it
03:42:05 <ynpvisitor74> no indy, or no indy seen?
03:42:17 <Kevin L> No indy
03:43:06 <ynpvisitor74> interesting start to your shift
03:43:26 <Kevin L> It was a surprise
03:44:41 <ynpvisitor74> glad it was under good viewing conditions
03:45:57 <Kevin L> Hoping that we get some e times for Grand.
03:48:27 <Betty> morning all
03:48:33 <Kevin L> Hi
03:49:37 <Betty> BH is changing in behaviour I see...
03:50:07 <Kevin L> Just keeping us confused
03:51:45 <Ryan(lab)> Those are fun when you are right there!
03:52:02 <Ryan(lab)> In put the screaming on par with F&M :)
03:52:09 <Betty> yep
03:52:16 <Betty> haha
03:52:33 <Betty> hope I get those this year
03:52:44 <Ryan(lab)> When are you going?
03:53:22 <Betty> end of aug till tuesday after Labour day
03:53:32 <Ryan(lab)> Should be good.
03:54:02 <Ryan(lab)> Key to seeing F&M. Keep in mind its *general interval*. Last summer it was 3 to 10 days but tended to be between 5 and 6.
03:54:14 <Betty> mybe with the help of some routined gazers...
03:54:16 <Ryan(lab)> Dont leave it, and if you do keep a radio on and go down for every event cycle.
03:54:50 <Ryan(lab)> Thats how I saw it, even with a few "do I *really* want to go back down there?"s
03:55:31 <Ryan(lab)> Though I did see one from the start of the event cycle, and one after hearing the IE call from the shower. (Yes, I hung the radios up on the shower wall)
03:55:44 <Ryan(lab)> (and still got down within 6mins :) )
03:57:25 <Betty> in 2013 we ran from BH overlook to F&M in I think 2 min or so (LOL) , I think it was an event cycle, but I don´t know. Everybody was very excited, but finally nothing happened. It went overnight then. :-(
03:58:41 <Ryan(lab)> Beats my record. We left F&M and got to BH about 5mins and 10s after the water-in-indy call. Will and I got there first, Micah and Demetri were a close third and fourth.
03:58:48 <Ryan(lab)> I actually timed that one
03:59:50 <Betty> haha, it lasted a lot more than 2 min! If you see me you would know I´d never be able to get there that fast
04:00:22 <Betty> my brother was there 5 min before I arrived
04:00:37 <Ryan(lab)> :)
04:02:08 <Betty> I should get much fitter till August... still a bit time left for training... :-p ohhh, look at that piece of chocolate!!!
04:03:12 <Dave from B> haha Betty...I'm also in training as we speak. 5 weeks down 10 to go
04:03:39 <Betty> Hi Dave :-D
04:10:03 <Ryan(lab)> Will and I are both distance runners, we had a bit of an advantage :)
04:10:32 <Kevin L> I can run a distance of about 12 feet.
04:10:51 <Betty> 15 years ago that would have been better
04:11:13 <Betty> I can watch someone running...
04:14:25 <Ryan(lab)> Speaking of which... running team here?
04:14:50 <Dave from B> That is the Olympic Bobsled team
04:15:17 <Ryan(lab)> Seriously?
04:16:08 <Betty> Steven Holcomb?
04:18:03 <ynpvisitor74> those clouds look really low
04:18:22 <Dave from B> Gotcha!:)
04:20:30 <Dave from B> I should have know someone from Germany would actually know someone on the Bobsled team!:)
04:20:56 <ynpvisitor74> VEC predictions....Castle 1715, Grand 1340, Riverside 1145
04:21:05 <Betty> :-)

04:30:59 <Kevin L> Interesting contrast on this one.
04:31:09 <ynpvisitor74> love it that they are missing the geyser
04:31:21 <ynpvisitor74> very nice contrast
04:31:39 <ynpvisitor74> Kevin did you see the predictions?
04:32:02 <Kevin L> Yes, thanks.
04:32:23 <kc (working)> looks like a short
04:32:26 <Kevin L> Short?
04:53:00 <ynpvisitor74> boardwalk is starting to bare off there
05:09:02 <ynpvisitor74> RIVERSIDE
05:09:04 <ynpvisitor26> Riverside?
05:09:05 <Kevin L> Riverside?
05:09:13 <ynpvisitor74> ha ha
05:09:16 <ynpvisitor74> yes, that
05:09:27 <ynpvisitor74> 1145 was the prediction
05:10:20 <ynpvisitor26> Got to go sell something
05:21:12 <Kevin L> Lion keeps teasing.
05:24:45 <ynpvisitor74> blue sky is leaving us
05:30:59 <ynpvisitor74> OF
05:31:20 <ynpvisitor74> 60 minutes later than the last one

06:08:44 <Betty> yay
06:08:59 <Kevin L> A bit on the early side of the window.
06:09:00 <ynpvisitor74> people, turn around
06:09:28 <ynpvisitor74> too bad, so sad
06:13:44 <Dave from B> :)
06:14:06 <Kevin L> About time you showed up!
06:14:19 <ynpvisitor74> yeah, you made it
06:15:34 <Dave from B> I feel like a chicken with my head cut off. Who wanted to expand in the first place?:)
06:16:13 <ynpvisitor74> hopefully you will be glad this time next year
06:16:43 <Dave from B> I will be glad when it gets open. It's going to be a beautiful market for the public.
06:17:06 <Kevin L> Too bad it is in the wrong place.
06:17:25 <Dave from B> Too much competition in your metro area
06:17:34 <ynpvisitor74> what will you do Dave, with no house building or shop building?
06:18:05 <ynpvisitor74> sure would like to see a 2nd...
06:19:15 <Dave from B> I would eventually like to go on a vacation out of the region!
06:19:38 <ynpvisitor74> hey Tahoe is out of the region
06:20:05 <ynpvisitor74> boo, no 2nd
06:20:16 <ynpvisitor74> blue sky back though
06:20:18 <Dave from B> True, Tahoe was fun.
06:20:34 <Kevin L> Maybe we will get a Lion
06:20:43 <ynpvisitor74> you brain is too addled to remember
06:21:08 <Betty> or a cougar...
06:21:31 <ynpvisitor74> would be fun if the bobcat came to the basin
06:22:09 <Dave from B> Hoping to visit Taylor this summer if she is somewhere else.
06:38:38 <kc (working)> daisy ie
06:39:32 <Betty> Tardy ie
06:41:40 <Betty> LC ie
06:43:29 <Betty> Oblong or V+T?
06:43:48 <Betty> V+T I think
06:44:10 <ynpvisitor86> no one entered Grand
06:46:16 <Dave from B> ...
06:59:08 <Kevin L> :p Another continued Rockford Files and I am gone tomorrow. :p
06:59:22 <Kevin L> I hate that!
07:01:24 <Betty> c´mon Lion
07:01:50 <Betty> yay
07:03:37 <Betty> good catch, Kevin
07:04:11 <Kevin L> It had looked like it was trying for a while.
07:09:34 <Kevin L> OF needs jumper cables
07:09:45 <Jenna> //
07:10:58 <Kevin L> A bit breezy
07:42:36 <ynpvisitor74> only one Lion?
07:42:55 <Kevin L> So far
07:43:13 <ynpvisitor74> getting late
07:45:58 <Dave from B> ..
08:01:15 <Kevin L> Nedd a king size bottle of NoDoz today.
08:01:51 <ynpvisitor74> yeah, I thought Lion was going to keep you awake
08:02:57 <Kevin L> I have been hoping for an Aurum.
08:03:31 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
08:03:59 <Kevin L> Auf weidergoodnight
08:04:11 <Betty> :-)
08:11:29 <Dave from B> Time to head to Becca's 4th game in 5 days. Her back is making lots of noise. Another come from behind thrilling victory last night. Have a great evening everyone!
08:12:02 <Kevin L> Good luck. See you Thursday.
08:12:17 <Dave from B> Headed to Rainbow?
08:12:27 <Kevin L> Yep.
08:13:53 <Dave from B> Could be your last trip to Fall if your warm temps continue
08:14:00 <Dave from B> to = until
08:14:08 <Kevin L> It may be.
08:14:16 <ynpvisitor74> Lion waking up?
08:14:34 <Dave from B> 2nd in the series
08:14:37 <ynpvisitor74> sure you did not sleep through one?
08:15:17 <Dave from B> Not this time
08:15:33 <ynpvisitor74> wow, that is odd
08:20:00 <ynpvisitor74> glad it came back though, that was nice
08:32:38 <Kevin L> I wonder if Aurum has already gone into Summer mode.
08:36:58 <ynpvisitor74> it will get cold this evening if skies stay clear
08:38:41 <Kevin L> It was cooler today than the past few days, but still a bit warmer than normal.
08:45:43 <ynpvisitor74> wind + sun = MELTING
08:50:12 <kc (working)> aurum
08:52:14 <Kevin L> The 3s it was out of the OF steam cloud was nice.
08:59:32 <Kevin L> Cam is on autopilot. If a camop sees anything good, feel free to take it.
08:59:43 <Graham> hello
09:00:01 <Graham> wait, where is the autopilot button?
09:00:52 <ynpvisitor74> bye kevin
09:26:59 <Graham> long steamy roar
09:27:22 <ynpvisitor74> acting odd today
09:28:10 <ynpvisitor27> look, the bison whisperer
09:28:22 <ynpvisitor27> alias black raven
09:32:29 <Graham> Daisy
09:49:53 <ynpvisitor74> down basin steam
09:50:10 <Graham> Grotto?
09:54:48 <ynpvisitor74> National Geographic posted the ridiculous Bigfoot video. How stupid is that?
09:55:01 <ynpvisitor74> Nat Geo, the new National Enquirer
09:57:50 <Graham> i am pretty sure they are bison, or bigfot wearing a bison costume
10:11:29 <Graham> of
10:16:34 <Graham> Castle
10:33:51 <ynpvisitor1> more bison than people in the basin today
10:34:15 <ynpvisitor1> this weekend will change that
10:34:35 <kc (working)> nice view
10:34:36 <Graham> holiday weekend, yeah
10:35:21 <ynpvisitor1> the skyline was much nicer
10:35:22 <ynpvisitor87> No Sasquatch today :(
10:39:36 <ynpvisitor1> going to cool down fast this evening
10:46:28 <kc (working)> hmm, no holiday here on monday. wonder where i file the protest
10:47:30 <Graham> we dont get the day off either, but it should be a light traffic day ..... for you too
10:47:41 <ynpvisitor1> Graham has one of those cushy government jobs
10:47:57 <kc (working)> yeah thought u got all the fed holidays
10:48:03 <Graham> nope, we dont get the day off
10:48:11 <Kevin L> I have Monday off.
10:48:18 <ynpvisitor1> why not? You get MLK yet not President's Day?
10:48:38 <ynpvisitor1> you have it off from bus duty Kevin
10:49:01 <Graham> true, we get 9 holidays although two are floaters. we dont get Veterans, Washingtons Birthday, or Columbus Day
10:49:29 <Kevin L> We used to get Oct 31st off in Nevada.
10:49:59 <kc (working)> they squished both dead prez into 1 day now we dont get that off either
10:50:30 <Graham> its still called Washingtons Birthday officially
10:51:06 <Graham> Abe doesnt have the Pentagon in his home state :)
10:51:11 <Kevin L> I thought it was Presidents Day. MLK is the only person with a national holiday.
10:51:28 <Graham> per Federal statute its Wash BD
10:52:15 <Graham> and then theres Columbus Kevin
10:53:03 <Kevin L> True. That is a national holiday although most places no longer reconize it.
10:53:24 <Graham> it will be a quiet commute day tho, and no customers to bother us
10:54:20 <Kevin L> I know in the special provisions in Nevada contracts Presidents Day is named, not Washington's Birthday.
10:55:31 <kc (working)> if i cant bbq it's not really a holiday
10:56:13 <Kevin L> I have done a bbq in a snow storm here.
10:57:11 <Graham> Heres the internet commentry, must be true
10:57:14 <kcmule> my first with my smoker it was snowing sideways. wind gets you not the precip
10:58:14 <Kevin L> We just got a smoker. Have done some chicken and some ribs. They were good, but we are still working on the learning curve.
10:58:53 <Graham> pretty sure theres no way congress will change the name of the holiday, its too controvercial
10:59:18 <kcmule> use 2 good thermometers, one internal one ex
11:01:39 <Kevin L> We do that kc.
11:03:02 <kcmule> so how is the rub coming?
11:03:40 <Kevin L> The kid did a KC style on the ribs. I wasn't that impressed.
11:07:21 <ynpvisitor1> it is called President's Day now though
11:07:26 <Graham> Dep
11:09:18 <ynpvisitor1> I cannot find a calendar or better yet, a sale flyer, that says Washington's Birthday
11:10:11 <Graham> if you read the link I posted: Some reformers had wanted to change the name of the holiday as well, to Presidents' Day, in honor of both Lincoln and Washington, but that proposal was rejected by Congress, and the holiday remained officially Washington's Birthday.
11:12:05 <ynpvisitor1> I read it, and the link agrees, it is now in the american psyche as PRESIDENT's day
11:12:46 <Graham> its actually an excuse for sales
11:20:58 <ynpvisitor1> ya think?
11:34:43 <Graham> goodnight
11:35:00 <Kevin L> Bye
13:10:27 <ynpvisitor6> mmmmmmmmm
