05:37:20 <Jimbo Palladium> Well, me and four numbers - we have a camop
05:37:37 <Jimbo Palladium> 0736 was ns
05:38:22 <Jimbo Palladium> Little bit of Indy now
05:38:23 <ynpvisitor62> of course you have a camop. the cam was zoomed in on beehive for teh start
05:38:37 <Jimbo Palladium> just noting that
05:38:50 <Jimbo Palladium> Good work by the camop
05:40:11 <ynpvisitor62> no ... it was luck
05:40:35 <Jimbo Palladium> So Indy started after BH and lasted about 2 minutes
06:10:50 <ynpvisitor41> @!#%@#%
06:11:21 <Jimbo Palladium> Hey, it was in daylight at least'
06:24:23 <Dave from B> Frost on the windshield this morning for the first time since Spring
06:28:45 <lc> morning
06:28:59 <lc> wonder if east gate is open.
06:29:18 <Dave from B> You going in this morning:D
06:29:40 <Dave from B> East gate closed a couple of days ago but I think it reopened yesterday morning
06:29:54 <lc> wondering if Kitt will have to take the long way in.
06:30:24 <Dave from B> She should be fine. Storm passed through on Tuesday
06:30:50 <Dave from B> Hope F&M waits for her
06:30:54 <lc> going to be cold.
06:31:12 <Dave from B> No BH showers this trip
06:31:46 <lc> Donnie and Scott are going in today also.
06:32:33 <Dave from B> I saw that on FB...we should see Tilt's Baby posts this weekend!
06:33:12 <lc> if Donnie brings his long johns.
06:35:00 <lc> btw Dave I got check from insurance co. Monday, over $1900.
06:36:34 <Dave from B> wow...amazing what dents cost these days
06:37:14 <lc> I agree, couldn't believe it was that much.
06:42:04 <Dave from B> Tlc, is the family gathering for the next UT game...sure to provide even more exzcitement?
06:43:23 <lc> probably will be exciting game.
06:46:12 <Dave from B> Has there been a "boring" UT game yet this year?
06:48:34 <lc> don't think so.
06:49:48 <ynpvisitor36> who was hoping f & m would wait?
06:49:56 <lc> I see Scott is at Grand.
06:50:26 <Dave from B> 36, Kitt is headed in today
06:50:35 <ynpvisitor36> brrr, they got more snow
06:50:42 <ynpvisitor36> it is I Kitt
06:50:48 <ynpvisitor36> haven't left yet
06:51:08 <ynpvisitor36> have to make sure entrance is open
06:51:11 <lc> you running late Kitt.
06:51:20 <ynpvisitor36> really don't want to drive all the way around
06:51:40 <ynpvisitor70> how long is your ynp-commute Kitt?
06:51:43 <ynpvisitor36> was hoping a late departure would allow temps to warm a bit
06:51:48 <ynpvisitor36> depends
06:52:10 <ynpvisitor36> 4 hours on a good day, but Sylvan probably got lots of snow, so
06:52:22 <ynpvisitor36> well have a good day
06:52:28 <ynpvisitor36> time to drive
06:52:37 <Dave from B> Drive safe
06:52:43 <ynpvisitor36> will do
06:52:45 <ynpvisitor36> bye
06:52:56 <lc> good luck
06:57:09 <Kevin L> It will be a snowcone BH tonight.
07:00:30 <lc> bbl
07:25:34 <Dave from B> Matthew upgraded to Cat 4 just 5 minutes ago
07:26:08 <Kevin L> Did I ever mention I like living in the desert?
07:27:17 <Dave from B> Not for a few days
07:32:51 <Mike J> I'm with you Kevin L. Life is good when the worst natural disasters you have to fear are heat, dust storrms, and thunderstorms.
07:37:08 <Dave from B> Grand?
07:37:44 <Kevin L> Going to be a boring day for me.
07:39:03 <Kevin L> I just finished turning a pen from deer antler. Looks great but it is only something you do with the swamper running full blast and the door open. Phew!
07:48:15 <kc (working)> lion ie
07:55:27 <Kevin L> OF ie
08:01:31 <Kevin L> Well I guess I have a shot at Aurum.
08:05:41 <Dave from B> 0, ... and 70.99. Is this Friday?
08:22:57 <Jenna> Grotto?
08:28:39 <Dave from B> Good one Jenna...1020 per Scott on GT!
08:29:48 <Jenna> ah, I didn't see it when I looked
08:30:09 <Jenna> because he posted it after I looked
08:31:32 <Dave from B> I meant good call not harassing you for copying something from GT:)
08:31:57 <ynpvisitor80> Scott must have missed Grand. I wonder how he missed Riverside being down basin?
08:33:38 <ynpvisitor80> Grotto Fountain is his favorite so glad he got that
08:36:35 <Jenna> oh ok Dave :)
08:36:43 <Jenna> I just wanted to mention it, even if I was wrong
08:37:46 <Dave from B> How has business been for you since returning to work?
08:39:00 <Jenna> it was a little slow since I had wrapped up a lot before leave, but it's been slowly picking up. Once the cool weather hits we'll get busy.
08:52:07 <ynpvisitor86> Daisy
09:04:41 <ynpvisitor65> No activity at F&M so far?
09:05:05 <ynpvisitor65> Lion
09:05:18 <ynpvisitor65> Sitting here at Lower Ham
09:06:12 <Dave from B> 65, no word here from F&M
09:06:51 <ynpvisitor65> We watched for a while yesterday, but the BW was so icy we didn't do much
09:08:28 <Kevin L> Times from the area from Donnie & Scott but nothing said about F&M.
09:09:34 <Julia&Gary> Haven't seen Steve this morning, but he was staying up here mostley because of the ice yesterday.
09:20:48 <ynpvisitor5> you could call Donnie and Scott on the radio
09:21:34 <Julia&Gary> I could. But I am doing email etc. So in a while
09:21:41 <ynpvisitor5> no posts from SteveO yesterday
09:21:44 <Kevin L> Looks like more crappy weather moving in.
09:22:17 <Julia&Gary> Yep, but not as bad as a few days ago.
09:22:47 <Julia&Gary> It wasn't as cold as they predicted last night. But I suspect we will get a few inches of smow
09:22:52 <ynpvisitor5> so you do not post on GT Julia?
09:22:53 <Julia&Gary> snow
09:23:19 <Julia&Gary> Nope, stopped a few years ago, got tired of the bickering overall.
09:23:43 <ynpvisitor5> sorry to hear that. I have never encountered bickering about GT
09:24:15 <Kevin L> That was fast.
09:24:15 <ynpvisitor5> have you been to the lower basin? Seen Fountain or Great Fountain?
09:24:26 <Kevin L> And yucky!
09:25:30 <ynpvisitor5> bummer the squall had to come at OF time
09:25:39 <Julia&Gary> Been gazing since 1957. Used to be more comaraderie. When folks decided to have control issues over the book and the radio a great many of us stepped back. Wow, can barely see across the road now.
09:26:08 <ynpvisitor5> have you checked on Great Fountain?
09:26:16 <kc (working)> maybe meant the listserv? nice to see folks are hanging in there to see OF
09:26:25 <kc (working)> hope they will be able to see it
09:26:29 <Julia&Gary> Seen Fountain or Great Fountain? yes, a few days ago
09:26:36 <ynpvisitor71> wowza....look away for a moment and it's whiteout
09:26:39 <Julia&Gary> No the list serv is not a problem
09:26:53 <ynpvisitor5> glad you got to see them.
09:27:10 <kc (working)> I see a lot more bickering there, on gt i just see geyser times.
09:29:00 <Julia&Gary> 'The bickering was about who was putting times on GT, more of the bickering was re the book and radio, but I no longer care so noneof you should either.
09:29:34 <ynpvisitor5> we just appreciate in basin times Julia
09:29:54 <kc (working)> np, stay warm out there
09:29:55 <ynpvisitor5> everyone can do what they want
09:30:02 <Kevin L> Camops LOVE basin times. They are soooooo helpful.
09:30:34 <Eric> That is a serious squal
09:31:03 <ynpvisitor5> hardly anything on radar, except one blob, and OF gets it
09:31:03 <Julia&Gary> Well you won'[t get them from me or many of the others. Too much crap and not enough adulthood. But how about we drop this.
09:31:45 <ynpvisitor5> we already did drop it
09:32:02 <Julia&Gary> :)
09:32:20 <ynpvisitor5> so OF must have erupted?
09:32:21 <Kevin L> I am guessing that OF must have gone.
09:32:25 <ynpvisitor5> people are walking away
09:32:33 <Mike J> Gone is a good choice of words
09:32:34 <ynpvisitor5> bummer for them
09:32:43 <ynpvisitor70> I am glad someone is there, because we are not! Have a great day out there
09:32:48 <Kevin L> this is where in basin reports really help!
09:32:51 <ynpvisitor5> wet stuff falling
09:33:05 <ynpvisitor5> OF VEC must have been watching
09:33:27 <ynpvisitor5> they might have had to use the people walking away indicator too
09:33:57 <Kevin L> For sure. This is pretty nasty.
09:33:59 <ynpvisitor5> I hope F & M waits until it clears a bit
09:34:42 <ynpvisitor5> is Kitt there yet?
09:35:09 <Kevin L> I don't think so. No posts from her yet.
09:35:23 <ynpvisitor5> I wonder if East Entrance opened up
09:37:14 <Kevin L> Or if it is still open.
09:37:20 <ynpvisitor5> looks like it is, I just checked the live road part of the Yellowstone app
09:37:28 <ynpvisitor5> this storm is very localized
09:37:40 <ynpvisitor5> check radar
09:38:03 <Kevin L> It sure hit the UGB hard!
09:39:30 <ynpvisitor5> it was a white out there for a few minutes
09:39:52 <ynpvisitor5> over 5 days on F & M, it might have gone already
09:40:09 <ynpvisitor5> sad folks like Julia are anti GT
09:40:33 <ynpvisitor5> gazing since 57, they must have seen some things through the years
09:42:17 <kc (working)> geysernps never did tweet the last OF
09:43:33 <Kevin L> I just posted it as an "A" time. Next prediction is at 1307 so it was a long.
09:43:34 <ynpvisitor5> better snow than the rath of hurricane Matthew
09:43:49 <Kevin L> Agree #5
09:44:03 <ynpvisitor5> Florida may really get it this time
09:44:04 <Kevin L> On both counts.
09:45:41 <Kevin L> I do find it strange when they ask us about condition but will not share their observations.
09:54:01 <ynpvisitor70> I didn't say something similar Kevin - they rely on webcam times, but not share live times. That's sad.
09:55:01 <Eric> If you use GT times, you should share on GT.
09:55:58 <Jenna> you can enter as a guest right?
09:56:21 <Kevin L> I think so.
09:59:15 <Jenna> so that is an option, just to make sure it is noted
10:01:37 <ynpvisitor70> I don't think so? Or we would see more of those instead of users that have 5 entries ... total.
10:03:51 <ynpvisitor5> I think you have to sign in now to post
10:04:08 <Jenna> I always signed in, so wasn't sure
10:04:14 <ynpvisitor5> yet it is true, folks like Julia want GT times, or come to chat for info, yet do not share theirs
10:04:14 <Jenna> was it always like that though?
10:04:37 <ynpvisitor5> no, you could do guest before, yet too many posts were not real from guests and no way to track them
10:04:45 <Jenna> makes sense
10:05:15 <ynpvisitor5> I am not 100% they took guest away, yet I have not seen a post from GUEST in a long time
10:05:23 <Jenna> I agree it is disappointing, I have not come across any drama on GT yet.
10:05:34 <ynpvisitor5> back years ago, Will created some
10:05:38 <Jenna> I am not signed in and there was not an option to enter a time
10:05:42 <ynpvisitor5> things have calmed since
10:05:50 <Jenna> I must have missed that then
10:06:16 <ynpvisitor70> it was just growing pains for this new thing- how to handle primary and secondary, wc versus basin, etc
10:06:23 <ynpvisitor5> yes, this is not BETTER
10:06:35 <ynpvisitor5> oops, I did not write all that, just wrote YES
10:06:53 <ynpvisitor70> not really drama just figuring how the best way to handle such an amazing amount of data
10:07:08 <ynpvisitor5> well Will deleted some posts back in the day that upset folks
10:07:15 <Kevin L> I think most of it was just a debate on how to make it work better.
10:07:17 <ynpvisitor5> some people never forgive and move on
10:07:43 <ynpvisitor70> that's a good way to put it Kevin L, not drama, just debate
10:08:00 <Kevin L> I think there were some good changes made and it ti a very useful tool.
10:08:08 <ynpvisitor5> so useful
10:08:21 <ynpvisitor5> I cannot imagine not having it
10:08:32 <ynpvisitor70> if they see anything in the LGB I hope they share with the folks who are there!
10:08:45 <Kevin L> I have a stupid phone so I am lost when I go to the park.
10:09:18 <Eric> Hi Betty
10:09:31 <Kevin L> Hello Betty.
10:09:40 <Jenna> we need all the times we can get on days like this, even if they sign in to chat and stay a visitor.
10:09:48 <Betty> hey Eric and Kevin and all others
10:09:53 <ynpvisitor70> trouble is, when the internet is down most gazers and the VEC are also lost these days
10:10:32 <Eric> Yep...we need more reliable internet in the park :-D
10:10:58 <Dave from B> Maybe we should only allow access to GT if people make 50 posts a year.....only kidding:)
10:11:00 <Kevin L> I can remember when they used to let a lot of people enter things in the log. They decided to put it under control on specific rangers and that caused some ruffled feathers. I would just write it down on a note pad and give it to them.
10:11:17 <Kevin L> I think they just wanted to keep it in a consistant format.
10:12:03 <ynpvisitor70> that wasn't my point Eric, LOL :P
10:12:12 <Eric> I have been thinking about a bison powered mess network for the park ;-P
10:12:30 <Kevin L> Not looking good for our view. At least that last squall didn't mess with the dome.
10:12:52 <Eric> Each bison carries a small wireless router that is powered by their movement
10:13:13 <Jenna> genius Eric!
10:13:13 <Kevin L> I was wondering if you were talking lunch Eric!
10:14:04 <Eric> It will launch on April 1st :-D
10:14:43 <Kevin L> You will have to remember that one Eric.
10:14:50 <ynpvisitor84> hey Eric - GoVixen here
10:15:07 <ynpvisitor84> I use the still pixelcaster image (no streaming here)
10:15:26 <ynpvisitor84> lately it's a shot of OF cone with headlights. Is that not an option for me any more?
10:16:39 <Eric> I have noticed that too :-(
10:16:50 <ynpvisitor84> booo
10:17:12 <Eric> looks like park service still shot on the streaming page is the same...
10:17:28 <Eric> guess pixelcaster is broken...
10:18:06 <ynpvisitor84> it did slow down my coming into chat to wait for that, but separately was a nice peek for me
10:18:12 <Eric> Wish I knew what the pixelcaster contract was, I could possibly provide a better service :-D
10:18:42 <ynpvisitor84> sounds good to me
10:19:14 <ynpvisitor84> ROAD reopens tomorrow Kevin L - can't wait to see what they did during the closure!
10:19:15 <Eric> Anyway to search contracts that the parks have?
10:22:28 <Kevin L> I think they have them online Eric, but I can't remember how to access them.
10:22:56 <Kevin L> I know I looked at the Isa Lake bridge plans.
10:23:13 <Kevin L> Looks like blue sky.
10:24:22 <Kevin L> There goes the blue sky....
10:25:06 <Eric> Yep, found it...but only for projects over 25k. Doubt they are paying more than that for streaming.
10:25:23 <Eric> Also, it might be paid for directly by the foundation.
10:26:06 <Kevin L> True. The foundation may be the best place to look.
10:27:09 <Dave from B> YA and YPF are merging into an organization to be called Yellowstone Forever sometime in next couple of months
10:28:11 <Eric> I saw that....goofy name, but makes sense to combine them.
10:28:20 <ynpvisitor70> (ugh on the name)
10:30:59 <Eric> They should have just kept one of the names, both were decent and better than the new one.
10:32:08 <Kevin L> Yellowstone Foundation Association?
10:32:22 <Dave from B> I like YAF better:)
10:34:30 <Eric> Or just leave off the extra stuff...Yellowstone Foundation
10:34:55 <Eric> YF
10:37:10 <Kevin L> Blue sky is back
10:38:30 <Jenna> that's going to make for some gorgeous photos
10:39:16 <Eric> definitely....it was like his the other day when OF was erupting...just beautiful
10:50:38 <Kevin L> I keep getting the spinning circle today.
10:54:37 <Kevin L> Dastle?
10:54:49 <Kevin L> :p
10:54:53 <Kevin L> Castle?
10:55:32 <Betty> looks like
10:56:08 <Kevin L> Or should I say Schloß?
10:56:37 <Betty> I like your ß
10:56:54 <Kevin L> I thought you would.
10:56:58 <Betty> Schloß is ok
11:04:57 <Kevin L> Pretty large indicator.
11:05:39 <Betty> for that time of year it is really large
11:13:02 <Kevin L> I guess we can call Schloß Dastle a major.
11:13:45 <Betty> yep
11:15:18 <Betty> OF
11:17:19 <Betty> my streaming is freezing all the time :-(
11:17:28 <Kevin L> Same here.
11:26:48 <Dave from B> Fine here
11:27:23 <Kevin L> Dave uses fish oil to lube it,
11:29:22 <Betty> :-(
11:34:38 <Dave from B> I have a wired connection to the cam
11:34:54 <Dave from B> Just finish the final 10 miles this week
11:42:03 <Kevin L> Just keep it away from Arizona Pipeline.
12:27:55 <Betty> Daisy
12:28:28 <Betty> and not choppy :-)
12:55:38 <Betty> OF
13:39:29 <ynpvisitor88> Must be some hot blooded poeple out there. i see every thing from shorts and tees to coats and warm hats.
13:41:40 <Kevin L> Canadians most likely.
13:42:50 <Kevin L> They wear shorts when it is above freezing.
13:52:28 <Betty> time to head out. Night all
13:53:02 <Dave from B> Nite Betty
13:54:22 <Kevin L> Geysers put her to sleep.
13:54:35 <Kevin L> Or lack of them I should say.
13:58:18 <kc (working)> aurum snuck in there, via gt
13:59:53 <Dave from B> Dasiy?
14:00:30 <Kevin L> Not unless it is back to 90m intervals.
14:06:53 <ynpvisitor6> Grand before dark?
14:09:05 <Kevin L> We hope so.
14:10:44 <ynpvisitor6> turban looking now
14:11:31 <ynpvisitor6> Kitt is there
14:12:26 <Kevin L> Good to get Turban times.
14:12:43 <Dave from B> Not sure what I saw back there
14:13:32 <Kevin L> Those fish fumes getting to you again?
14:13:42 <Dave from B> Yeah, Grisso's and Kitt caught Aurum
14:14:27 <Dave from B> What is steam in left background?
14:18:39 <Kevin L> Not sure how I missed that one. I must have been looking at GT then.
14:31:36 <Casey> Just checking in real fast. Have I missed anything good?
14:31:56 <Kevin L> A lot of sleep.
14:32:26 <Casey> I could have used some sleep.
14:32:52 <Kevin L> Looks like a Turban
14:33:17 <ynpvisitor6> more weather moving in
14:33:34 <ynpvisitor6> that steam looks promising
14:34:26 <Kevin L> Being in an OF window doesn't hurt.
14:34:30 <ynpvisitor6> no post, Kitt said she get tied up talking to folks sometimes and does not get Turbans posted right away
14:34:49 <Kevin L> Riverside?
14:34:53 <Casey> Riverside
14:35:28 <Kevin L> We are in an F&M window too.
14:35:55 <Dave from B> Riverside makes sense from time standpoint
14:36:14 <Casey> I don't know why Riverside didn't have a prediction posted, but it is right on the interval for it
14:36:19 <Dave from B> Oct 6 and I'm listening to thunder right now
14:36:20 <Kevin L> Yes, but I like to stir things up.
14:36:47 <ynpvisitor70.99> OF
14:38:27 <Dave from B> Enjoy Grand. Time to do finish in the market. Have a great evening everyone! Enjoy qulifying Kevin.
14:39:07 <Kevin L> Enjoy your stinky fish Dave.
14:39:33 <Dave from B> Last couple weeks of fresh wild salmon season. People buying like mad
14:40:08 <Casey> I need to head out too. At least I caught OF and some Riverside steam.
14:40:19 <Kevin L> Sounds good to me!
14:40:32 <Kevin L> Bye Casey
14:41:22 <Casey> Bye Kevin. Bye everybody.
14:47:16 <ynpvisitor6> no Turban after1607, maybe they went down to F & M
14:51:03 <Kevin L> If they went to F&M they are not haveing good weather now.
14:51:42 <ynpvisitor70.99> is that rain
15:00:17 <Kevin L> Got some Turban tims now.
15:01:16 <ynpvisitor30> I'm sure Scott was happy to catch Tilts Baby
15:16:12 <ynpvisitor41> big Turban?
15:19:01 <ynpvisitor41> it's that time of year, what steam is what...
15:19:34 <ynpvisitor41> hopefully Turban not posted and not a delay
15:25:58 <Kevin L> At least the storm went away.
15:28:03 <ynpvisitor41> seems like forever since Graham has been on chat
15:30:46 <Kevin L> Think he is working in Seattle this week.
15:31:41 <ynpvisitor41> thanks
15:32:49 <Kevin L> And she's off!
15:33:53 <ynpvisitor41> nice lighting
15:34:44 <Kevin L> Good spikes.
15:36:08 <ynpvisitor41> so is the hurricane affecting a car race this weekend?
15:36:55 <Kevin L> What race this weekend?
15:37:14 <Kevin L> They may be able to do it in boats!
15:37:21 <ynpvisitor41> I thought you said Daytona had a race
15:37:28 <ynpvisitor41> they are ground zero for the storm
15:38:06 <Kevin L> It is Charlotte and I really don't see them getting it in. Looks like heavy rain.
15:38:21 <ynpvisitor41> no in basin post for Grand, I hope they are there
15:38:49 <Kevin L> Kitt has it posted at 1732
15:39:01 <ynpvisitor41> so they will cancel? She must have just posted, I just looked!
15:39:21 <ynpvisitor41> I guess my GT had not updated
15:39:21 <Kevin L> They are getting qualifying in now, but I think the rain is not far away.
15:40:40 <ynpvisitor41> is that a pause?
15:41:12 <ynpvisitor41> nice 2nd, maybe it will go for 3
