17:55:40 <ynpvisitor91> I couldnt figure out why there are alot more vistors to the OF compex this weekend....but now I see the OF Inn opened for the season Friday.
17:58:10 <Dave from B> Welcome home Kevin
17:58:42 <Kevin L> HI
18:00:01 <Dave from B> How was New Mexico?
18:00:41 <Kevin L> Long!
18:01:39 <Betty> hi Kevin and Dave
18:01:51 <Kevin L> Hi
18:03:53 <Kevin L> It was sure crazy. I really know why I live in the desert. Got home last night just about midnight.
18:06:55 <Betty> I´m back later. Swimming pool is open for the season.
18:07:14 <Kevin L> Have fun!
18:27:30 <Kevin L> Aurum
18:27:43 <kc (working)> nice wb KL
18:27:44 <ynpvisitor87> !!!
18:29:06 <Kevin L> ty kc. Was happy to leave that snow!
18:30:31 <kc (working)> of course we're back to summer now. thats colorado for ya
18:31:05 <Kevin L> My Daughter just stayed until today.
18:32:15 <Kevin L> The drive from the church to the hotel was white knuckle all the way. I was terrified. Getting out the next morning was not nearly as bad. I guess there was 6.5" in that area.
18:33:00 <Kevin L> Good thing we met at the museum. Heinrich and Suzanne were there. I bet they had a rough ride back home.
18:36:54 <Dave from B> Did all of you wear your floppy hats?:)
18:37:27 <Kevin L> We should have.
18:38:20 <Kevin L> I think it had been at least 10 year since I have seen Suzanne in person.
18:40:21 <Kevin L> kc and I did an meet at the railroad museum. Walked around the place in the mud for about an hour just before the skys opened up.It was a lot of fun.
18:43:07 <Kevin L> Centipede?
19:21:37 <kc (working)> not sure what that was in reference to but it makes me want to play that game
19:21:43 <kc (working)> oblong ie
19:22:31 <Kevin L> There was a group of small schoold kids marching in a line that reminded me of the games the way they followed each other.
19:22:50 <Kevin L> That snow gave me Davespeak!
19:25:07 <Kevin L> Looks like we have a good group of gazers in the park today.
19:46:46 <Dave from B> Snow does cause brain damage
19:47:08 <Kevin L> And cancer.
19:47:21 <Kevin L> AND ltos of traffic problems......
19:47:41 <Betty> and typos
19:47:58 <Kevin L> Now I can understand Dave a bit better.
19:50:22 <Dave from B> :D

20:00:46 <Betty> OF
20:01:49 <Betty> Kevin, tomorrow 86 is predicted here. I just feel like I´m in LV
20:02:13 <Kevin L> Wow! That is really hot there!
20:02:37 <Betty> but thunderstorms in the evening :-p
20:03:17 <Kevin L> But no snow!
20:03:27 <Betty> no :-)
20:04:32 <Kevin L> It snowed 6.5" on us Saturday night in Denver. :p
20:05:22 <Betty> so you did not wear shorts I bet...
20:06:17 <Kevin L> Nope. It was not a fun night.
20:07:06 <Betty> It is hard to deal with that white stuff when you are not used to it
20:10:18 <Dave from B> The only white dust Kevin knows is the powdered sugar on his donut!:D
20:10:49 <Betty> yummi
20:10:54 <Kevin L> And not too much of that!
20:12:03 <Kevin L> Supposed to be 91 here tomorrow Betty, but 70 this weekend.
20:12:29 <Betty> weekend will be colder here too
20:12:41 <Kevin L> I hope so!
20:13:01 <Kevin L> At least we all have AC.
20:13:09 <Betty> hoping for snow? Now you are used to it :-p
20:14:01 <Kevin L> Had to take a long detour home. Drove 16 hours yesterday!
20:14:15 <Betty> BAH!
20:14:40 <Betty> that´s not nice
20:15:41 <Kevin L> It was a fun drive though. Got home a midnight and my wife had to be a work at 0700 today. :p
20:17:22 <Kevin L> Looks like we are in a Grand window.
20:18:33 <Betty> that´s what I did 3 weeks ago. Skiing for 6 hours, packing and driving home 6hours. Then starting to work at 6.45 the next morning after 1h commute by train :-p
20:19:02 <Kevin L> Not fun
20:24:58 <Betty> the dome needs a cleaning
20:25:16 <Kevin L> Or replacing
20:28:35 <Betty> Daisy

21:06:53 <Kevin L> Reported
21:10:14 <Dave from B> They lost 3-0 in semis. She just got home an hour ago
21:11:08 <Betty> bummer, Dave. Hope she is not that disappointed
21:11:18 <Dave from B> I still can't believe they're putting in a railing at Fountain:(
21:11:35 <Dave from B> They played 4 games....think she was satisfied
21:12:09 <Betty> that´s goo.
21:12:19 <Betty> good :-p
21:12:42 <Kevin L> Goo was what I had!
21:12:43 <Dave from B> You've been hanging around me too long, Betty
21:12:48 <Betty> I read about the railing. Maureen posted it
21:13:12 <Betty> lol to both of you :-D
21:16:18 <Betty> ah, there are the pictures. I´m loading...
21:17:08 <Kevin L> One is a garden railroad with track that is 45mm wide.
21:17:40 <Betty> can´t tell why, but they are not loading
21:18:09 <Kevin L> Strange.
21:21:08 <Dave from B> Flip them upside down and try again, Betty
21:21:58 <Kevin L> Maybe they don't translate to German.
21:22:36 <Betty> veeery funny
21:27:11 <Kevin L> Castle ie
21:28:28 <Betty> you messed up my phone, Kevin. the gmx adress worked
21:28:54 <Kevin L> I am now a phone killer?
21:29:43 <Betty> no. but maybe the pics were too big. Don´t know
21:29:56 <Betty> nice snow pics
21:30:08 <Kevin L> Could be the size.
21:30:34 <Kevin L> That one makes the train you commute in look better, doesn't it?
21:30:58 <Betty> yes :-)
21:31:06 <Betty> OF
21:33:28 <Kevin L> That is called a galloping goose. They were used during the depression when there was not enough traffic to warrant a ful train. They would weld trucks to train cars (both passenger and freight). These ran on 3 foot gauge track.
21:34:38 <Betty> that´s awesome
21:35:18 <Kevin L> That was the first time I had ever seen one run.
21:36:17 <Betty> it was still in duty? cool
21:36:42 <Betty> SC ie
21:37:26 <Kevin L> Is has been restored and they give rides in it at the Museum in Golden Colorado.
21:37:47 <Betty> did you do it?
21:39:33 <Kevin L> I didn't take the ride due to time constraints, but kc lives in that area and came there to meet me. We walked around the area and looked at the equipment. He knew where it was and I knew what it was. We made a good team. Just stared to rain as we left.
21:40:19 <Betty> I bet you had lots of fun
21:40:38 <Betty> nice you were able to meet
21:41:04 <Kevin L> It was a place I had always wanted to go. Meeting kc after working with him for 4 years was also fun.
21:45:10 <Kevin L> I am tryiing to send you a small video file of it Betty.
21:50:32 <Kevin L> With all the wet weather we may get a short Aurum interval.
22:14:40 <Kevin L> Bus duty brb

02:38:30 <lt> a nice one
02:38:37 <lt> pretty light
02:53:10 <Graham> hello, did I miss anything>
02:53:58 <Kevin L> Not if you got up real early this morning.
02:55:02 <Kevin L> Are you having fun?
02:55:29 <Graham> was in a plane with no wifi for BH
02:55:45 <ynpvisitor27> where are you?
02:55:52 <Kevin L> I was checking my eyelids for leaks.
02:56:56 <Kevin L> Got to do a little bit of training with kc Saturday.
02:57:55 <Graham> Kansas City
02:58:29 <Graham> he told me about that Kevin, sounds like you had fun
02:58:42 <Graham> out to dinner with 6 nureses
02:59:15 <Graham> me that is, not Kevin and kc
02:59:20 <Kevin L> It was. He knew where the stuff was, and I knew what the stuff was so we made a good team! Got done just before all Hell broke loose out there.
02:59:53 <Kevin L> We had 6.5" of snow where I was at. Not go for a desert rat!
03:00:04 <Kevin L> go+good
03:00:22 <Graham> hehe yeah, you got good mountain weather
03:00:31 <kcmule> thought maybe that was the training you were referring to
03:00:38 <Graham> how was reception part 2?
03:00:51 <Kevin L> I am still half awake. Had to take a long detour to get home. About 16 hours of driving to get home.
03:01:48 <kcmule> not a single flake left anywhere
03:01:53 <Kevin L> Reception wasn't bad. Heinrich and Suzanne showed up so I spent most of the time taking to them. I was stunned to walk outside to about 2.5" of snow. Ride to hotel was white knuckle.
03:02:34 <Graham> well you wont see any snow now unless you go to Yellowstone
03:03:00 <Kevin L> We went down I-25 to I-40 then to US-93 at Kingman to Vegas.
03:03:38 <Kevin L> I saw enough snow to lastt me the rest of my life this weekend
03:05:04 <Graham> hhe, its so much nicer in Yellowstone
03:05:06 <Kevin L> It was a nice trip all in all. Even though the ride home was long it was still a lot of fun.
03:05:50 <kcmule> and i moved here in part because it snows a lot less than im used to
03:06:34 <Kevin L> If that was less, I sure don't want to see more!
03:06:54 <Graham> Kevin needs to take a trio to Buffalo in Feb
03:07:18 <Graham> or to Crater lLake, they get even more there
03:07:50 <Kevin L> I had a friend that I worked with in Highway Design that was from Buffalo. That is why he moved to Vegas!
03:07:51 <Graham> i thunk they avearge 50' a year there
03:09:30 <Graham> The average snowfall at Crater Lake is 533 inches every year. That's about 44 feet. The greatest cumulative snowfall for one season was 879 inches (73 feet) the winter of 1932-33. The greatest depth on the ground at one time was 258 inches (21½ feet) the winter of 1983.
03:09:53 <Graham> per NPS site, so I was only 6' ovver the average :)
03:10:22 <kcmule> it's hard to scrape the windshield when you cant find the car
03:10:47 <Graham> well that soles the scraping windsheeld problem :)
03:11:10 <kcmule> work from home solves it too :D
03:11:23 <Graham> ao heir average is almost a foot a week, Kevin get that shovel out
03:11:26 <Kevin L> Now THAT was an issue for me. The people at the church had stuff to do that and they took care of my car, but once I hit the hotel the next morning it was all back.
03:12:13 <Kevin L> Luckily we had a kitchenette so I took the spatula out there and spend about an hour or so sprucing it up.
03:12:23 <Graham> thats a fgoot a week, including summer months, so 2' per week in winter
03:12:34 <kcmule> do what everyone else does here and idle your car for 30 mins
03:13:40 <Kevin L> That is what I was doing. Still had about 4" on the roof. I learned what happens when you drive with that and then stop at an exit. Pampers moment #2 (in more ways than one!)
03:14:13 <kcmule> lol
03:14:41 <ynpvisitor24> average at Paradise on Mt Rainier is 53.4 feet with the highest on record being 93.5 feet in winter of 71/72.
03:15:11 <Kevin L> All of a sudden at about 35mph you have a total white out.
03:27:43 <ynpvisitor27> time for Grand soon...
03:28:38 <ynpvisitor24> Been watching for it but Turban was 5 minutes ago so have a while befoer need to look again
03:29:23 <ynpvisitor27> thanks
