03:24:31 <Joe> Good morning It is a balmy -18°F here much colder than what were seeing in Yellowstone
03:25:31 <Betty> morning Joe, that is quite cold
03:26:47 <Joe> Hello Betty yes quite cold but when it gets up to zero it will feel like a heat wave
03:27:04 <Betty> :-)
04:59:55 <Joe> I'm glad I got up early, Old Faithful, Castle, Beehive and Lion all in 62 minutes, what fun!
05:00:34 <Betty> bummer, missed all
05:36:47 <Graham> guess i slept in too lte, but that was nice too. good morning
05:37:17 <Betty> morning Graham
05:38:20 <Betty> Happy Christmas Eve, btw
05:39:50 <Graham> you too. looks like Gary is in for a cold mornig
05:40:38 <Graham> not much chance of a daylight BH either :(
05:46:16 <Joe> That might be Gary now he said he'd wave camera
05:52:08 <Graham> looks like he has a tour group following him
05:52:26 <Graham> maybe we will get an aurum report today
05:54:59 <ynpvisitor44> 4fl on chat -12° at West. Nothing from the NWS at the ranger station. I wonder where Eric pulls the temp from?
06:03:00 <Graham> lion
06:03:48 <Graham> i think it was 4 last night and then quit
06:04:11 <Graham> maybe its Gary there
06:08:10 <ynpvisitor...> Mostly sunny and 10° the forecast. I hope the fog clears when the sun gets up.
06:10:38 <Eric> Morning
06:11:07 <Eric> 44, the temperature comes from a water monitor station on the firehole at OF
06:11:50 <Eric> So should be pretty accurate to OF temp
06:12:12 <Betty> morning Eric
06:12:25 <Eric> Hi Betty :-D Merry Christmas Eve to you!
06:12:42 <Betty> thanks, same to you
06:19:50 <Joe> -21°F, the sun is up it will get warm soon :)
06:20:28 <Graham> at least warmer
06:20:40 <Joe> That is here where I am it's much nicer in Yellowstone
06:21:02 <Graham> i still dont believe its 4
06:22:57 <Joe> It looks much colder there I don't think it's 4°F
06:24:26 <ynpvisitor...> Eric, it is strange that the temp at OF is warmer than at West unless the Firehole affects the reading?
06:42:38 <ynpvisitor49> "valley cold"
07:17:43 <Joe> Looks like we will have a sunny day, nice blue skies, and a :( dirty dome.
07:30:56 <Kevin L™> Went to sleep at the wrong time Graham.
07:31:28 <Betty> morning Kevin
07:31:44 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty
07:32:39 <Joe> The overnight capture is posted if you want to see Kevin's beehive last night and the beehive this morning
07:34:16 <Kevin L™> Wow. Short interval. I guess it likes the dark.
07:36:42 <Betty> Lion
07:39:34 <Betty> Aurum!!!
07:39:35 <Betty> .
07:39:36 <Betty> .
07:39:37 <Betty> .
07:39:44 <Betty> on static
07:39:54 <Kevin L™> :)
07:40:40 <Betty> it was just before the new pic came on
07:40:48 <Kevin L™> Well we know it isn't dead.
08:20:39 <Betty> Grand
08:21:08 <Kevin L™> One of those nuclear types.
08:22:04 <ynpvisitor60> Nice start
08:26:04 <Betty> Gary is there, nice
08:28:37 <Kevin L™> Nice to see a time without a wc on it.
08:32:12 <Betty> OF
08:32:23 <Kevin L™> Dome needs a good scrubbing.
08:33:30 <Betty> great on static
08:34:07 <Kevin L™> Static is always good on the fluffy ones.
08:46:20 <Betty> Lion
08:48:20 <Betty> even Lion is fluffy
09:32:29 <ynpvisitor49> don't forget to watch for Santa tomorrow on static cam
09:33:58 <Graham> we should see all the geysers erupting too if the gazers are on the nice list
09:34:42 <Michael> If there's a list for geysers, Beehive is trying to work its way off it.
09:43:33 <ynpvisitor60> I thought Santa made the rounds in the park the other day.
10:23:17 <Betty> Daissy
10:36:45 <Graham> wonder what Gary is up to now
10:37:32 <Betty> maybe checking the rockpile
10:37:48 <Kevin L™> Trying to stay warm.
10:38:48 <Graham> rockpile is a hard watch in winter especially when we dont know what its doing
10:40:24 <Michael> I wish it would show us a steam cloud a little more often.
10:42:53 <Graham> have to see if there are lots of ice layers before waiting there long
10:44:15 <Michael> F&M forensic science. I like it.
11:06:21 <ynpvisitor118> Ya think RR would lend Gary the pole?:)
11:25:46 <ynpvisitor60> Gary did go check out F&M. Snowpacked and no sign of recent eruption
11:26:14 <ynpvisitor44> yay, Worland is 2 degrees warmer than Yellowstone
11:26:26 <ynpvisitor44> it was -15 earlier this morning
11:28:03 <ynpvisitor44> bbl
11:33:08 <Michael> Sorry to hear the news from the rockpile.
11:42:01 <ynpvisitor86> F&M122417.jpg

14:36:53 <Michael> There wasn't much to see but steam, unfortunately.
14:48:28 <Michael> Aurum?
14:49:16 <Michael> with that steam, who knows?
14:56:52 <ynpvisitor51> If in doubt on Aurum check the static cam. It shows up in the gap between the two left trees.
15:09:54 <Michael> oops. looks like I missed the last Old Faithful.
