03:13:39 <ynpvisitor999> well... we have color, but how are we supposed to see even OF in this ugly weather?
03:17:52 <ynpvisitor999> OF ie
03:18:27 <ynpvisitor999> based on height likely exact, though
04:12:40 <ynpvisitor999> OF ns
04:12:55 <ynpvisitor999> or not
04:13:31 <ynpvisitor999> probably some preplay
04:53:19 <ynpvisitor20> The question is...what about Bee?
04:53:45 <ynpvisitor999> haven't seen it (yet)
05:29:31 <ynpvisitor999> morning Joe
05:29:58 <Joe> Good morning DG
05:30:38 <Joe> or I should say good afternoon
05:31:01 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon here, 1431 to be precise
06:11:46 <ynpvisitor999> what does that 1999 0844 ie Spectacle entry in the recent entries tab?
06:14:17 <Joe> ?
06:17:57 <Joe> I see it now, We will have to ask Dave from B, looks like a comment from GOSA list serv back in 1999
06:20:35 <ynpvisitor999> I think it's more like an error of the code behind that recent entries tab rather than one on Dave's behalf
06:20:52 <ynpvisitor999> as the date and such appears to be right
06:22:50 <ynpvisitor999> also, Beehive likely didn't erupt overnight - I can see steam originating from it
06:22:55 <ynpvisitor999> OF
06:28:34 <ynpvisitor59> Think it just means he just entered it.
06:37:50 <ynpvisitor8> :snow::snow::snow::p
06:38:54 <Joe> :i::i:C it
06:41:18 <ynpvisitor999> morning Kevin
06:41:23 <ynpvisitor999> and kc
06:42:01 <Kevin L™> Morning.
06:42:10 <Kevin L™> kc you are up early!
06:43:05 <kcmule> mornin all. usual work time, guess this will be 7:42 tomorrow
06:44:13 <Kevin L™> True. BTW my Dad's cousin that makes the great biscuits in Grand Junction died last week.
06:47:22 <Joe> Sorry for your loss Kevin, I lived in Grand junction for a couple of years in the 70s
06:48:41 <kcmule> likewise KL. I lived in gj in 99
06:48:47 <Kevin L™> TY Joe. He owned Starvin Arvans. Not sure when he had it, but I think he had it in the Ramada Inn during the 70s.
06:49:50 <Kevin L™> His Sons are running the restaurants now.
06:51:19 <Joe> I worked for the State of Colorado at the time, probably ate there, but I really dont remember, I do love good biscuits.
06:52:11 <Kevin L™> What was really funny is his brother lived in Vegas and I had never met him. When I went to Germany his brother took a temporary job over there and I just happened to bump into him in Frankfurt. Neither one of us lived in Frankfurt.
06:53:06 <Kevin L™> If you get back there check them out. They have 3 or 4 places. I think GJ, Delta, and Fruita.
06:54:34 <Joe> I'll do that, I do not pass on good biscuits. :)
06:56:23 <Kevin L™> Here is the website. Cinnamon rolls are awesome too. https://www.starvin-arvins.com/
06:58:23 <Kevin L™> Sure is a bummer to see the blockades up at West Gate. :(
06:59:03 <ynpvisitor59> Sad
06:59:54 <Kent> Roads leading to West still in very good shape. I think the park was a bit over aggressive in their shutdown :(
07:06:01 <Kevin L™> I think so Kent. Forcast last week was for 5-8 inches. Now 1-3 inches. They could have at least kept it open from West to OF.
07:07:04 <ynpvisitor...> I have driven in over a foot inside the park on previous closings.
07:11:10 <ynpvisitor...> Perhaps a few more plow drivers and a few less sociologists studying how we "feel" about our park experience? Becoming a grump in my old age so will go clean my basement./
07:14:50 <Kevin L™> Cleaning a basement would make me a grump!
07:55:06 <ynpvisitor999> and the cam appears to be down
08:14:24 <Jake> I have moving pictures here
08:15:48 <ynpvisitor999> me too, just didn't put it in chat
08:42:22 <ynpvisitor999> morning JSJ
08:42:31 <ynpvisitor999> view cleared up a bit
08:43:54 <ynpvisitor9> winter still out there?!!!
08:45:13 <Joe> Graham says it is not winter until the benches are covered in snow.
08:45:33 <Kevin L™> They are close
08:45:59 <JSJ> Hello. I like the snow cover, despite the gray.
08:48:04 <ynpvisitor999> splashing from Bee
08:56:22 <ynpvisitor999> Plate ie?
09:20:40 <kcmule> coyote
09:22:29 <Kevin L™> Frozen dinners for him now
09:42:36 <ynpvisitor59> Long list of OF on GT - an not much else!
09:45:06 <Joe> not much else seen, visibility has been limited.
09:45:07 <Kevin L™> If snowfall counted it would be a full page.
09:46:54 <ynpvisitor51> BH looks promising though
09:50:14 <Joe> 1357 Echinus?? posting wishful thinking?? in recent tab
09:51:10 <ynpvisitor51> the widget must keep track of recent edits to GT
09:51:20 <Graham> will the benches get covered or not?
09:51:31 <Graham> did I miss anything?
09:51:47 <ynpvisitor999> that's probably why a random 0822 ie Spectacle from 1999 appeared this morning
09:52:21 <ynpvisitor114> Weird. The eruption was 10-28 if you click the link
09:54:14 <Joe> Graham, you've missed nothing but OF :)
09:54:32 <Joe> and a Coyote
09:54:34 <ynpvisitor51> and a coyote
09:56:52 <Graham> and Giant
09:57:20 <ynpvisitor114> We may be watching Giant erupt right now
10:00:32 <ynpvisitor26> Lion?
10:00:55 <ynpvisitor114> maybe
10:01:05 <ynpvisitor26> Yeah, not exactly a bluebird day is it?
10:01:14 <ynpvisitor999> could be - maybe zooming in would help a little
10:01:41 <Kevin L™> Looks like something at BH too. Maybe just splashing.
10:02:01 <Mickey> I like that clear runoff channel at Split Cone, anyone seen any water recently?
10:02:41 <Mickey> BEE?
10:02:45 <Mickey> .
10:02:46 <Mickey> .
10:02:48 <Mickey> .
10:02:49 <ynpvisitor114> Nice
10:02:50 <Mickey> ?
10:03:01 <ynpvisitor114> Yes
10:03:08 <ynpvisitor999> nope - recent SC activity seems to be occasional eruptions separated by more than two hours or even days
10:03:14 <ynpvisitor999> yes on Beehive
10:03:28 <ynpvisitor999> so maybe we saw Indy erupting
10:03:42 <Mickey> that was wierd to watch.
10:03:55 <Mickey> "Huh, that's some interesting steam......aaaaand it's now a straight vertical line."
10:04:02 <Kevin L™> Maybe that splashing was indy
10:08:30 <ynpvisitor999> Bee was just in time, as it appears as if snowfall is increasing
10:19:07 <Kevin L™> Well the Golden Knights score 1st today. Been a rough road trip.
10:32:10 <ynpvisitor999> OF
10:33:45 <Graham> i guess the last OF was a short
10:34:03 <ynpvisitor999> yes
10:48:48 <Graham> someone killed the snowperson
11:10:18 <Kevin L™> I think he got heat exhaustion one day.
11:39:48 <Graham> lion
11:42:36 <ynpvisitor114> How in the world did DaveM see Giant 1302 yesterday? I'm looking at the capture knowing it's supposed to be there and still can't see it.
11:44:52 <ynpvisitor999> it appears Lion is still ie, making this the initial
11:58:48 <ynpvisitor105> I am in mourning over our snowperson and will retire.
12:12:16 <Kevin L™> Grand?
12:12:34 <ynpvisitor999> I'm thinking Spasmodic
12:12:56 <Kevin L™> Think you are right
12:17:36 <Kevin L™> Goal! Up by 2 now!
12:24:48 <Kevin L™> Nice, another Goal. Up 5-2 in 3rd.
12:30:08 <ynpvisitor80> anyone hear if Steve can get out?
12:31:37 <Kevin L™> Haven't heard, but no posts from him today. Outbound lane was plowed.
13:03:00 <Graham> lion
13:30:00 <ynpvisitor4> does anyone have a link for an official notice of the roads closing early?
13:30:27 <ynpvisitor4> not on the phone line or the park roads page
13:37:50 <JSJ> I looked for it yesterday - no luck.
13:38:06 <JSJ> Government websites are infamous for being user-unfriendly and non-informative.
13:38:28 <Graham> and its the weekend too
13:39:23 <ynpvisitor4> yeah, I was just hoping for official to post it, just to avoid an argument. I'll just wait, don't feel like fighting stupid today, lol
13:40:16 <ynpvisitor74> Will posted it on GT yesterday around 15:00
13:40:48 <JSJ> GT is not a park site.
13:41:03 <ynpvisitor74> Far too informative to be a park site.....
13:42:25 <ynpvisitor4> that is true....I appreciate that site more each time I use it!
13:42:48 <ynpvisitor2> The only green (open to wheeled vehicles) roads are Gardiner to Cooke City and to Bechler. Everything else is open to oversnow vehicles only. https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/parkroads.htm
13:43:20 <ynpvisitor80> oversnow, lol
13:43:41 <ynpvisitor80> so we could go if we had a Bombadier
13:44:01 <ynpvisitor4> actually, oversnow doesn't open until Dec- this is the dead zone for public use
13:44:31 <ynpvisitor80> but they have that on their map and not just "closed"?
13:44:32 <ynpvisitor2> True, but that's how the live road conditions map is color coded.
13:44:52 <ynpvisitor4> but the list under has the dates Conditions permitting, roads will open to oversnow travel by snowmobile and snowcoach at 8 am on the following dates: December 15: West Entrance to Old Faithful, Mammoth to Old Faithful, Canyon to Norris, Canyon to Lake, Old Faithful to West Thumb, South Entrance to Lake, Lake to Lake Butte Overlook. December 22: East Entrance to Lake Butte Overlook (Sylvan Pass)
13:45:17 <ynpvisitor4> Heaven forbid they should have a closed color for before winter and after winter.
13:45:35 <ynpvisitor4> that would make it way too easy for people to use
13:48:04 <Graham> grand
13:50:14 <ynpvisitor4> nice driving in that greyness!
13:51:14 <Graham> i am headed out, not much we can see anyway other than OF and Lion
13:51:33 <Graham> maybe the benches will vanish tomorrow
13:51:41 <Graham> goodnight
13:54:00 <ynpvisitor4> thanks Graham! Have a good night!
15:13:29 <ynpvisitor104> OF
15:15:15 <ynpvisitor999> hi Betty
15:15:36 <Betty> hi DG
15:18:55 <ynpvisitor77> tomorrow it will be dark
15:20:18 <Betty> here it is dark :-)
15:20:41 <Betty> I mean at 1700 already
15:20:41 <ynpvisitor999> indeed
15:22:53 <ynpvisitor77> yes, we are catching up with you now
15:23:06 <Betty> yep
15:24:49 <ynpvisitor77> back to 8 hours between the cam and you
15:24:53 <Betty> seeing Daisy now will be hard
15:25:04 <Betty> true
15:31:08 <Betty> Lion
15:31:24 <ynpvisitor77> nice of Lion to come back
15:32:42 <ynpvisitor77> looks like it was the right decision to close the park
15:33:03 <ynpvisitor105> No it wasn't!
15:33:21 <ynpvisitor77> I'm sure the plow guys are thrilled
15:33:45 <ynpvisitor77> well if you look at the basin, and look at the West Gate, it looks like a good decision
15:33:48 <Betty> you wanted to go this weekend, 105?
15:33:55 <ynpvisitor80> the plows still have to work - lots of admin stuff has to happen before they start grooming
15:34:13 <ynpvisitor77> yes, but on a more relaxed schedule
15:34:36 <ynpvisitor77> say the LE's are happy then
20:29:35 <ynpvisitor87> Someone in Basin with a flashlight.
