04:38:39 <Kevin L™> Up early today Dave.
04:39:25 <Dave from B> Yep... bumped up the alarm clock a half hour for the rest of the year
04:40:01 <Dave from B> We had a great day yesterday. Last year, we didn't have a day like that until Dec 19.
04:40:17 <Kevin L™> That is nice.
04:41:20 <Dave from B> You done making pens for the Christmas yet?
04:42:00 <Kevin L™> I think so, but you never know. I get a last minute order now and then.
04:44:19 <Kevin L™> No pens today. Going to be heading up to Rainbow.
04:45:46 <Dave from B> That's great. Any special plans in the canyon?
04:47:10 <Joe> morning everyone
04:48:40 <Dave from B> Hi, Joe
04:49:15 <Joe> Hi Dave
04:55:36 <Kevin L™> Hi Joe. Just the normal today Dave. It does involve tannerite though.
04:56:31 <Joe> Hi Kevin, tannerite can be fun!
04:56:49 <Kevin L™> It is awesome in a canyon!
04:58:16 <Dave from B> Amazing how my truck is working after I sent you a picture of it:)
04:58:17 <Kevin L™> Headin out. Have a great day.
04:58:31 <Dave from B> You too, Kevin. Drive safe
05:03:37 <Dave from B> Daisy?
05:04:09 <Joe> yep
05:10:13 <Mike J> Morning all.
05:10:36 <Joe> Hi Mike
05:10:50 <Mike J> A web site related question. I've mentioned this before, but, if I don't turn off my computer, I'm not signing out of this web site.
05:11:35 <Dave from B> Mike, do you leave chat room window open or closed?
05:11:55 <Mike J> I close the window. Don't sign out, just close it
05:12:21 <Joe> Correct, your cookies will bring you back in.
05:12:39 <Mike J> Not that I mind, but, for example, it looks like I've been watching for the last three days.
05:13:14 <Mike J> I'll have to double-check later, but i thought I signed on to another computer (as a number) and it still showed my name
05:13:35 <Joe> If you do anything to clear your cookies you will have to sign back in
05:13:49 <Dave from B> Mike J, it's okay to admit that you've been watching for 72 straight hours:)
05:14:38 <Mike J> Dave from B, my family is already looking for reasons to put me away - not that they don't have a lot of them - but I'm afraid to pile more on
05:16:07 <Mike J> Here's an easier questions about this. There's no real "signout" process, is there?
05:16:28 <Joe> No
05:16:37 <Dave from B> haha, Mike.
05:17:04 <Mike J> Well, enough talk. Time to jus sit back, listen to Christmas carols, and watch the snowy geyser morning.
05:17:10 <Joe> other than typing /quit
06:03:41 <Eric> Morning all
06:04:18 <Eric> Can anyone tell if this is a wolf or a coyote? http://geysercam.xyz/ep/2017/12/12142017.html?t=27.930182
06:06:19 <Eric> I think it's too far away to distinguish....but I am no wildlife expert.
06:07:47 <Dave from B> Morning Eric
06:07:54 <Dave from B> Too small a speck for me
06:16:01 <Eric> BTW...electric peak and yellowstone lake are now on the static webcam archive
06:16:42 <Dave from B> Thanks, Eric! How many left to go?
06:18:40 <Eric> I think that is all I am going to do...not sure how useful images of roads would be :-D
06:19:22 <Eric> Actually, not sure how useful any of it is going to be :-P
06:19:44 <ynpvisitor15> fast forward of traffic backups at the gates, lol
06:20:19 <Dave from B> Someday, they will come in handy when something "big" happens
06:21:18 <Eric> Yep...until then I will just let them all keep recording :-D
06:23:10 <Jimbo W> I just like the element symbol for tungsten
06:24:44 <ynpvisitor15> a friend just got a new subaru- it looks very similar to the gray one she had, but this color is "tungsten"
06:25:25 <Jimbo W> I do think gray as the color of tungsten
06:26:23 <Jimbo W> Like most metals, it's silvery gray in metallic form
06:46:39 <Jimbo W> Umm, Castle
06:46:47 <Jimbo W> :castle:
06:58:01 <Jimbo W> OF ie probably late in eruption I was watching a Stage 2 rocket separation
07:08:19 <ynpvisitor8> Looks like the West Gate could be backed up for hours!
07:08:38 <ynpvisitor8> Or not...
07:18:43 <Joe> Lion
07:27:43 <Betty> Hi all
07:28:18 <Joe> Hello Betty
07:28:40 <Betty> Hi Joe
07:33:00 <Betty> Today is the Park open for Winter use, right?
07:33:45 <Joe> I think so
07:34:47 <Joe> snow coach going in now on static
07:35:26 <Betty> Great. Think we may get some in basin reports then
07:37:17 <Betty> Though i have limited access here to follow
07:46:06 <Jimbo W> Grand start, 30 second lag delay for me
07:50:54 <Jimbo W> 5 minutes in
07:53:13 <Jimbo W> 8 minutes
07:53:27 <Jimbo W> actually not quite
07:53:43 <Joe> Grand
07:54:04 <Joe> was 0944 start
07:54:22 <Betty> Hey Jimbo
07:54:23 <Jimbo W> ok
07:54:29 <Jimbo W> Hi Betty
07:55:43 <Jimbo W> 10 minutes +
07:57:21 <Jimbo W> Hmm, really short steam burst there - not enough duration for a 2nd, I don't think
07:57:34 <Betty> Wolfram did not fit?
07:57:47 <Jimbo W> Just felt symbolic today
07:58:56 <Betty> Ok, makes sense
08:00:25 <Jimbo W> Wolfram is my favorite "alternate" element name -- better than Aurum, except as a geyser name >(
08:30:52 <ynpvisitor99> Some short Grand intervals....wow
08:32:33 <Dave from B> It's possible that all of the last 100 eruptions for Grand have been under 7 hour intervals
08:33:41 <Dave from B> Only 7 single intervals in last 100 have been over 6.5 hours
08:33:45 <Dave from B> Lion ie
08:39:38 <ynpvisitor99> I wonder if Grand will move closer to 5hr 0 min
08:40:53 <ynpvisitor99> OF
09:20:25 <Jimbo W> Is Aurum in there somewhere?
09:42:16 <Dave from B> Did I just miss Lion or was that just a big puff?
09:57:10 <ynpvisitor90> riverside ns or exact
10:09:49 <ynpvisitor6> I have gotten used to not seeing people, it looks wierd to see poeple again!
10:46:13 <Jimbo W> Big steam from little Sprinkler
10:49:55 <Dave from B> Daisy ie
11:06:18 <ynpvisitor94> I just checked -- No Aurum at 1119
11:42:34 <ynpvisitor106> I wonder how they got to OF, sled, coach or van
11:44:39 <ynpvisitor106> Looks like snowmobile suits.
11:45:31 <ynpvisitor52> The people in regular winter clothing snow van/coach, those in snowmobile suits, sled
11:46:12 <ynpvisitor52> sled=snowmachine
12:33:48 <ynpvisitor999> that was some good splashing
12:45:52 <Jake> BHI
12:45:53 <Jake> ding
12:45:54 <Jake> ding

12:48:23 <Eric> I can

12:48:34 <Eric> ok...nevermind :-D
12:48:45 <Dave from B> Thanks
12:49:03 <Dave from B> A friday and kc isn't working?
12:49:09 <Eric> Hi Biddle
12:49:15 <Biddle> Hello
12:49:28 <Dave from B> Biddle, it has been awhile
12:50:14 <Biddle> Everything got busy all at once, not much time for geysers :(
12:50:27 <ynpvisitor999> I hope you get well soon, kc
12:50:34 <Eric> Get well KC :-(
12:51:14 <Dave from B> Room is full of gazers today
12:51:16 <kcmule> thank you
12:51:37 <Steph> Got two texts! :)
12:51:40 <Jake> this will be a false indicator because it's too early for the BH prediction
12:51:57 <Eric> Nobody on the BW yet
12:52:12 <Eric> Did the park open today?
12:52:16 <Dave from B> Does Snow Lodge open today as well?
12:52:29 <Steph> Yes, and yes
12:52:35 <ynpvisitor99> Snow Lodge tomorrow
12:52:40 <ynpvisitor99> so no for today
12:54:20 <Dave from B> So, no overnight visitors at OF today....it will be a lonely BH
12:54:49 <Joe> Dave I did not hog this one :)
12:55:33 <ynpvisitor99> Dave, there were a few visitors on the benches a minute ago before we zoomed in
12:56:24 <Steph> Sorry, it was Mammoth for today, Snow Lodge tomorrow
12:56:26 <Dave from B> Thanks, 99
12:57:09 <KarenLow> Dark ride back to West for those snowmobilers!
12:57:49 <Dave from B> Park closes in winter at 5pm?
12:59:13 <Ryan> Gonna be a steamy BH
12:59:18 <ynpvisitor99> not sure if there is an out of gate time
12:59:44 <ynpvisitor999> Bee!
12:59:44 <KarenLow> No, the curfew to be off the road in winter is 9pm, and traffic is not allowed on the road before 7 am.
13:00:16 <Dave from B> I know when we were on the gazer coach they had mentioned a time that they like everyone out of park.
13:00:33 <Dave from B> Thanks Karen
13:00:41 <Jimbo W> Climbing for me
13:00:49 <KarenLow> Welcome. I'm only a bit homesick.
13:01:42 <Dave from B> St. Louis is a little ways from YNP
13:02:23 <KarenLow> I'm actually in Kansas City, other side of the state, but still don't know when I'll get back. And visiting would be far different that working there.
13:03:06 <ynpvisitor99> no trailer to sleep in
13:03:29 <Dave from B> oops..I'm confused as always
13:05:18 <ynpvisitor999> SC ie?
13:09:28 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
13:09:32 <ynpvisitor999> ie/ns
13:09:39 <Jimbo W> Nice Lion sequel
13:12:12 <Dave from B> It's been having some quick turn arounds of late
13:12:13 <KarenLow> I think the fellow on the right is their guide.
13:12:28 <ynpvisitor99> nice of Lion to wait for BH to be done
13:12:46 <KarenLow> Now, is Faithful waiting for Lion to be done?
13:12:56 <ynpvisitor999> does look like it's doing that
13:19:55 <KarenLow> preplay
13:20:44 <KarenLow> is that someone off trail at the left edge of the screen, or is he standing on a bench
13:20:53 <ynpvisitor999> good, Grand is now also in the window
13:21:02 <KarenLow> nevermind, it is just the snow on the boardwalk
13:24:15 <ynpvisitor999> Grand
13:26:20 <ynpvisitor999> I think OF's going to wait until Grand is done
13:27:01 <KarenLow> OF is already out of its window
13:27:17 <ynpvisitor999> Aurum?
13:27:32 <ynpvisitor999> no, teasing
13:27:41 <KarenLow> I only see steam from Giantess
13:27:54 <Eric> I think Jake broke OF
13:30:43 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1530
13:33:46 <ynpvisitor999> looks like a medium
13:33:51 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
13:34:27 <Eric> 2nd
13:34:40 <ynpvisitor999> was wondering that already
13:36:10 <KarenLow> It's been fun. See you all later!
13:36:20 <ynpvisitor999> NPS predicts OF @ 1641, not 1708 (what I think was predicted earlier)
13:36:24 <ynpvisitor999> bye Karen
13:36:44 <ynpvisitor999> now it's 1708
13:45:03 <Graham> yeah its the weekend
13:45:31 <Graham> looks like I just missed everything
14:02:21 <Dave from B> Time to get out of here. Have a great weekend everyone!
14:02:32 <ynpvisitor999> you to Dave
14:02:59 <Eric> Night Dave
14:03:38 <Graham> have fun Dave
14:29:59 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
14:31:01 <ynpvisitor999> to me this Lion looks very end-of-series-like
14:45:10 <Graham> Dep?
15:01:28 <Graham> of
18:48:40 <Kevin L™> Did I miss anything?
