22:57:44 <Yeti> Yay, Indicator!
04:24:11 <ynpvisitor63> :star:
04:51:17 <ynpvisitor92> Massive steam plume from Castle
05:51:21 <Dave from B> Happy New Year to everyone
05:51:49 <Mike J> And a happy back unto you sir
05:55:59 <TimL> Happy New Year
07:01:49 <ynpvisitor44> Did you mess up the view Dave?
07:02:37 <Dave from B> Yes, I stole the blue sky from Billings
07:03:45 <Dave from B> for*
07:04:10 <Dave from B> 17" on the ground in Billings from last weeks storms
07:04:30 <Dave from B> So bright you need sunglasses from snow glare
07:04:42 <Kevin L™> :)
07:19:53 <Eric> Morning
07:20:02 <Dave from B> Morning Eric
07:20:15 <Kevin L™> Hi Eric
07:24:31 <Eric> Hope you guys had some good holidays :-D
07:25:14 <Kevin L™> Poof!
07:25:30 <Kevin L™> Not bad. Hope yours were great.
07:27:23 <Eric> They were nice...but man it's hard to get back to work :-P
07:27:46 <Kevin L™> Work?
07:30:08 <Dave from B> We made it to the 2nd day of the new year before we heard about Kevin's retired status!:)
07:38:34 <Kevin L™> I thought "In Stock" meant "We have this and are ready to ship it.". I get an email that a part I ordered that is still listed as "in Stock" is backordered from the manufacturer with an unknown shipping date from Sears Parts Direct. Guess what brand my next power tool will NOT be.
07:38:36 <Eric> Woot, the static webcam archive auto generated it's first 2018 pages! Here is to the first full year of static webcam archives.
07:40:07 <Eric> That is frustrating Kevin!
07:44:03 <Kevin L™> Yep. Craftsman used to be a mark of quality. Frankly their power tools now are no better than Harbor Freight at twice the price.
07:45:04 <Eric> probably come from the same factory
07:45:35 <TimL> Sears sold off the entire Craftsman brand to Stanley
07:45:54 <Kevin L™> Would not surprise me. Of the 3 tools I need repairs on all 3 are Craftsman due to poor quailty parts.
07:46:25 <Eric> well, they use to make gears in their tools out of metal
07:46:34 <Eric> now everything is made of plastic
07:47:32 <Kevin L™> They had a Kobalt sliding miter saw for a great price before Christmas at Lowes. Kicking myself for not getting it now. And Lowes give me a 10% Veteran discount!
07:47:56 <Kevin L™> Move to Stanley was not a good one.
07:49:26 <Kevin L™> I have a Delta table saw made in the early 60's that is awesome. Weighs about 400 pounds.
07:55:04 <Eric> Ya, I sold an inherited band saw that weighed about 400 pounds too.
07:55:11 <Eric> Delta
07:58:10 <Kevin L™> I wish I had one of those. I really like that table saw. Nothing fancy but it works and I can fix darn near anything on it if there is an issue. Sort of like a car in the old days.
07:59:31 <Kevin L™> I wonder what interval Aurumhive will have today.
08:03:04 <ynpvisitor25> .

08:03:05 <ynpvisitor43> there is your answer
08:03:07 <ynpvisitor25> bhg
08:04:06 <Kevin L™> Now this I didn't expect.
08:04:11 <Dave from B> Is that soon enough?
08:04:12 <Jimbo Yttrium> What?
08:04:12 <Kevin L™> txt is out
08:05:39 <ynpvisitor43> 9h 3min
08:07:22 <Jimbo Yttrium> Great view
08:07:26 <Kevin L™> Well now we know how to set it off. You just insult it.
08:07:52 <Kevin L™> Bet the sound in the basin is awesome.
08:08:03 <Dave from B> That ought to put a nice layer of ice on the bw
08:08:56 <Kevin L™> At -15° it is probably frozen before it hits the bw.
08:09:35 <Kevin L™> Wish that would have given some warning. It was pretty awesome.
08:10:10 <Dave from B> Go stick your tongue on the bw railing:)
08:10:47 <ynpvisitor43> next time send a text when you insult Bee :
08:10:55 <Kevin L™> At that temp I wouldn't go out of a building!
08:11:16 <Dave from B> Good idea 43!
08:11:55 <Dave from B> C'mon, Kevin. It is refreshing!
08:12:48 <Kevin L™> My wife would probably still have the ceiling fan on.
08:13:46 <Kevin L™> I am also hoping a Grand was missed in the fog.
08:20:57 <ynpvisitor43> we will have a Grand at ~1pm :) whether or not the fog stays away
08:21:32 <Kevin L™> Warming up now. a whole 2°.
08:23:01 <ynpvisitor114> cone walkers!
08:23:11 <ynpvisitor114> .
08:23:13 <ynpvisitor114> .
08:23:46 <ynpvisitor114> now more
08:23:50 <ynpvisitor43> more
08:25:04 <Dave from B> Has anyone called LE?
08:25:19 <ynpvisitor114> no
08:25:23 <ynpvisitor35> Move the camera I want to see them fall in!
08:25:55 <Kevin L™> LE enroute
08:26:03 <TimL> this is unbelieveable
08:26:16 <Dave from B> Thank you Kevin
08:26:41 <Dave from B> Good thing last OF wasn't a short
08:27:00 <ynpvisitor35> Lets take selphies to increminate oursleves
08:27:03 <TimL> idiot foreigners
08:27:12 <Dave from B> Maybe I can get just a little closer
08:27:21 <Kevin L™> Need preplay now
08:27:54 <ynpvisitor35> Park is going to make money on these fines$$$$$$
08:28:01 <Dave from B> Jail will be overflowing soon
08:28:40 <ynpvisitor114> at least there's likely a tour guide for this group that can be held responsible
08:29:02 <Dave from B> Tour guide should be heavily fined
08:29:20 <ynpvisitor114> looks like they got yelled at
08:29:44 <TimL> just ONE more?
08:30:44 <ynpvisitor35> They should be kicked out of the park
08:30:51 <Dave from B> "But I saw footprints in the snow"
08:32:19 <ynpvisitor35> Hey next lets go throw stuff into Morning Glory Pool, that would be fun!
08:33:34 <ynpvisitor114> is that LE? walking with a purpose...
08:34:06 <ynpvisitor114> guess not
08:35:17 <ynpvisitor23> i didn't see a ranger approach the group -- nothing happened!
08:36:15 <Kevin L™> When I talked to LE they said they had someone on the way but I never saw them.
08:37:02 <Jake> on the way from where? being LE at OF in the winter must be equal parts difficult and boring
08:37:21 <ynpvisitor23> Thanks for reporting the incident, Kevin. "Yellowstone Pledge" says to report, but who to call?
08:38:08 <Kevin L™> Didn't ask. I have the number to the dispatcher.
08:38:41 <ynpvisitor999> that's a short Bee interval
08:38:48 <ynpvisitor23> What's the number for LE dispatcher?
08:39:18 <ynpvisitor999> I'm fairly certain I just saw OF preplay
08:39:45 <Kevin L™> 307 344 2640
08:40:07 <ynpvisitor23> thanks, KevinL!
08:51:57 <Kevin L™> Depression?
08:52:10 <ynpvisitor999> runoff looks steamy
08:53:44 <Kevin L™> That looks like it is ie now.
08:53:56 <Kevin L™> Good puffs from it.
08:59:27 <Kevin L™> Groblong
09:00:33 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1100
09:00:53 <ynpvisitor999> fluffy
09:01:20 <Kevin L™> That would have warmed our conewalkers big time.
09:01:55 <Kevin L™> Great static
09:03:44 <ynpvisitor999> I hoped one of the conewalkers got stuck in OF's vent until its preplay (start) of 1039. I think they wouldn't conewalk ever again
09:04:43 <Kevin L™> Hopefully someone caughtup with that group so they don't do anymore damage to the park.
09:13:52 <ynpvisitor999> where is all that steam on the left side of the frame coming from?
09:13:55 <ynpvisitor999> coyote!
09:14:37 <ynpvisitor46> Nice view
09:14:54 <Dave from B> Hum....I smell something different out here today
09:14:59 <Kevin L™> LE posted a guard!
09:15:19 <TimL> conewalkers are carrying food
09:15:40 <Jake> a direwolf
09:17:30 <Dave from B> You can tell the holidays are over. Market has been open for 77 minutes and sales are a big goose egg
09:18:06 <Eric> Hopefully you have adjusted resources accordingly :-P
09:19:04 <Kevin L™> Riverside?
09:19:35 <ynpvisitor999> looks like it to me
09:20:07 <Kevin L™> If I was there I would buy some Cod. Pink trout sounds good too.
09:20:18 <ynpvisitor999> interval fits for a double
09:21:38 <Kevin L™> Hopefully it will stay this way for the next Grand.
09:22:24 <ynpvisitor999> Grand will likely be in the next 2-2.5 hours
09:23:46 <Betty> hi all
09:23:59 <ynpvisitor999> evening Betty
09:24:07 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty
09:24:10 <Betty> evening DG
09:24:19 <Betty> morning Kevin
09:24:54 <Eric> Happy New Year Betty!
09:25:13 <Betty> Same to you, Eric :-)
09:26:46 <Kevin L™> They had an interesting article on the recipie for lebkuchen in the paper Betty. I will try to scan it for you.
09:27:38 <Betty> just a photo with the pad works too
09:31:00 <Kevin L™> Haden't thought of that.
09:31:50 <Betty> I take photos of everything
09:32:09 <Eric> cool video of yellowstone lake ice melting: http://geysercam.xyz/lake/2018/01/01012018.html
09:32:56 <Dave from B> Hi Betty
09:33:18 <ynpvisitor999> that's nice
09:34:57 <ynpvisitor999> is that steam at the start of the timelapse from West Thumb?
09:35:42 <Betty> hey Dave, HNY
09:36:09 <Kevin L™> On its way Betty.
09:39:39 <Betty> öhm, oh well, that´s hard to read :p:D
09:40:13 <Kevin L™> I like the recipie.
09:40:28 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy ie?
09:40:38 <Betty> yep
09:41:14 <Kevin L™> Hard to see it in that fog.
09:51:20 <Eric> wow...snow lodge is offering a wopping $28/night off a night between 1/12 - 1/15 :-P
09:51:35 <Eric> So if those 3 days work for you...bonus!
09:52:14 <Kevin L™> A 5% discount?
09:52:39 <Eric> about that
09:52:54 <Kevin L™> :)
09:53:53 <Kevin L™> I remrmber when that would get you 4 days in an OF Lodge cabin.
09:54:47 <Betty> that shows us how old you are :-)
09:58:48 <Kevin L™> Ribit!
09:59:49 <ynpvisitor1> I remember $35 a night, still a bargain
10:00:44 <Kevin L™> There were 4 of us that would go spend a week at the park. It would cost us $50 each including gas and food!
10:01:41 <Eric> actually...that discount was 10%
10:02:26 <Kevin L™> Must not be selling as many rooms as they thought they would.
10:23:54 <Eric> Is graham still in the park?
10:24:22 <Betty> he did not go yet
10:24:34 <Kevin L™> He hasn't gone yet
10:24:38 <Betty> end of Jan I think
10:24:39 <ynpvisitor999> Lion seems to be up to something
10:24:43 <Eric> ohhh, bummer
10:29:25 <Dave from B> This isn't enough snow for Graham anyway
10:32:55 <ynpvisitor87> Last week was gray and cold, he is lucky it was not his week in the park
10:33:31 <ynpvisitor87> I am surprised how many people are there today
10:33:40 <Kevin L™> Not gray but I do consider 10° at noon to be cold.
10:33:50 <Betty> Aurum on static?
10:34:48 <Betty> gone
10:34:52 <Kevin L™> I didn't see it.
10:35:19 <Jimbo Yttrium> Possible - I'm lagged
10:35:30 <Betty> streaming as usual doesn`t work properly
10:36:04 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1235
10:36:11 <Kevin L™> Boom!
10:36:22 <ynpvisitor999> out of frame
10:37:17 <Betty> I would really love to see it :p
10:37:33 <Betty> ahh, a new frame
10:47:31 <ynpvisitor999> NPS 1344, suggests the previous eruption was a short
10:48:56 <Kevin L™> I would have to agree. Too much steam for me to tell for sure but it looked long. They have the best view.
10:53:22 <ynpvisitor999> NPS changed their prediction to long. They don't know it either
10:54:57 <Kevin L™> Must have made a mistake. It did look long but these temps can fool you.
10:56:16 <Jake> Eric, nice lake melt video. Strong evidence for impending supervolcano explosion. If I'm reading the ice cover correctly, the volcano will blow on January 7, 2018.
10:57:02 <ynpvisitor999> so that steam visible at the start was a phreatic eruption then?
10:57:54 <Jake> without knowing that word, I would say yes because it sounds dangerous
10:58:29 <Jake> honestly though, I thought the steam was the ice sublimating
10:59:39 <ynpvisitor999> a phreatic eruption is a steam explosion, caused by magma touching water
11:00:16 <Betty> as you thought, dangerous :-)
11:01:15 <Eric> magma, magma, fun for girls and boys!
11:03:39 <Kevin L™> I hope it goes after the hockey game.
11:07:25 <Kevin L™> Rocket major?
11:09:33 <Dave from B> Was that the longest and largest conewalking in history?
11:09:48 <Eric> Larry asked me to fix something on this page last week, now I cannot remember what :-(
11:10:53 <Kevin L™> This was one of the longest I have seen. There was one where some IDIOT tourguide took his whole group up there.
11:11:04 <ynpvisitor999> when was that?
11:11:27 <Kevin L™> How are you with miter saws?
11:11:45 <Kevin L™> It was about 2 or 3 years ago.
11:11:48 <Jake> I thought it was this one: https://www.nps.gov/features/yell/slidefile/history/1872_1918/visitoractivities/Images/02851.jpg but they're sitting not walking ;)
11:12:31 <Kevin L™> Ringside seats.
11:12:53 <Jake> more conesitters: https://www.nps.gov/features/yell/slidefile/history/1872_1918/visitoractivities/Images/09190.jpg
11:13:40 <ynpvisitor999> on Grotto... I hope for them it didn't went while they were sitting on it
11:14:38 <Eric> ohhh, it was fixing the log history for certain dates
11:14:44 <Eric> 12/15 doesn't work :-(
11:16:16 <ynpvisitor999> https://www.nps.gov/features/yell/slidefile/history/1872_1918/thermalfeatures/Images/02860.jpg this is Norris in 1902, I wonder what geyser is shown erupting
11:16:46 <Kevin L™> BW is a bit narrow!
11:17:09 <Dave from B> Whirligig?
11:17:15 <ynpvisitor999> the name on the sign starts with a C
11:17:16 <Betty> cannot pass with a stroller
11:17:50 <Kevin L™> Stroller probably would not fit on it!
11:17:55 <Betty> or Constant
11:19:07 <Dave from B> one way traffic?
11:19:11 <Jake> Constant
11:19:17 <Jake> somebody stuck on the West Entrance cam?
11:19:46 <Jake> and they're gone
11:20:29 <Jake> I like how the boardwalk looks like it leads straight into a massive fumarole
11:20:38 <Betty> think it is Constant
11:21:14 <ynpvisitor999> found it: https://img0.etsystatic.com/155/0/5526369/il_340x270.1194181548_18z2.jpg
11:21:34 <Dave from B> seems awful big for Constant
11:21:43 <ynpvisitor87> were there cone walkers today?
11:21:58 <ynpvisitor999> according to chat history there were
11:22:01 <Kevin L™> A whole herd
11:22:41 <Dave from B> about 8 or so
11:22:47 <TimL> or is that a Gaggle?
11:23:28 <Kevin L™> A gaggle is geese. They are smarter than this group was.
11:24:16 <Dave from B> What is the dumbest mammal on earth
11:26:37 <Kevin L™> Certain Yellowstone turons?
11:27:42 <ynpvisitor999> Lion ini
11:28:40 <Kevin L™> Ugh!
11:30:55 <Betty> that is no fun today :-(
11:31:42 <Dave from B> You don't like Lion?
11:32:12 <Betty> if I only could see it :-(
11:32:36 <Kevin L™> You on the train?
11:32:47 <Betty> no
11:33:21 <Betty> wonder if it is doing updates
11:33:35 <Kevin L™> Just a stream with an attitude problem?
11:33:50 <Betty> think so
11:34:59 <Kevin L™> Runoff channel on LC looks cold.
11:35:33 <Kevin L™> Grand ie
11:36:11 <Betty> well, I need to grab some food then. Maybe it´s better when I´m back
11:36:42 <Dave from B> -C'mon you guys...the eruption lasts longer like this!:)
11:38:56 <Kevin L™> At least Grand beat the OF window.
11:44:57 <ynpvisitor999> looks like that was the end of the first burst
11:54:21 <Dave from B> 6 hours until the next burst
11:59:24 <Eric> Alright...bad log history dates are now working
11:59:30 <Eric> It was Jake's fault
12:02:22 <Kevin L™> Working better?
12:05:46 <ynpvisitor28> no
12:10:42 <ynpvisitor60> OF
12:11:17 <Betty> not really
12:17:15 <Kevin L™> That really was OF Betty.
12:18:23 <Betty> :drizzle:
12:20:06 <Dave from B> :$:
12:20:33 <Betty> not this one, Dave!
12:20:35 <Kevin L™> :sun:
12:20:56 <ynpvisitor999> ./kick Dave from B reason=using lightning emoji
12:21:06 <ynpvisitor999> :sun: is fine, though
12:28:02 <Kevin L™> Daisy soon
12:28:10 <ynpvisitor999> I hope so
12:38:37 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
12:38:40 <ynpvisitor999> ns
12:38:47 <Kevin L™> Daisy
12:38:53 <Betty> a bit better now
12:39:14 <Betty> almost no lag and moving pics :-)
12:39:27 <Kevin L™> :)
12:44:11 <ynpvisitor999> Aurum!
12:44:12 <ynpvisitor999> .
12:44:13 <ynpvisitor999> .
12:44:14 <ynpvisitor999> .
12:44:31 <Betty> yay
12:44:39 <Betty> with no lag
12:45:01 <Kevin L™> Takes as long to find the preset as the geyser lasts. :P
12:45:29 <ynpvisitor999> Lion hopefully next
12:45:35 <Betty> I thought that preset is on your largest key
12:45:57 <Kevin L™> It is on the top, but I was near the bottom.
12:46:51 <Kevin L™> I have Lion cued up
12:55:30 <ynpvisitor999> static is stuck once again
12:56:11 <Kevin L™> Betty broke it.
12:56:29 <Betty> :i::i:
12:59:21 <ynpvisitor999> looks like Lion is done for this series
13:00:25 <Kevin L™> A series of 1?
13:00:37 <ynpvisitor999> so far, yes
13:05:29 <Eric> Was that a gazer solute?
13:07:02 <Eric> serious hams out there today.
13:11:17 <Eric> anyone have a good geyser motion gif icon?
13:11:45 <Dave from B> So, what happens to pics of conewalkers. I would hate for those to end up on Fb or something
13:22:27 <ynpvisitor999> conewalkers will end up on youtube due to the daytime captures being posted on there
13:22:33 <ge> They already are on facebook
13:22:39 <Betty> hey, ge! Happy Birthday
13:22:58 <ge> Thanks, Betty
13:23:00 <Dave from B> Pictures from their camera?
13:24:41 <ge> looks like the webcam
13:25:37 <ynpvisitor1> oh I see what you are asking - I hope they are confiscated
13:26:58 <ynpvisitor999> dep?
13:28:33 <ge> https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10214995248975997&set=g.151866528164424&type=1&theater&ifg=1
13:28:33 <Kevin L™> Lot of steam but no splash
13:28:58 <ynpvisitor999> :(
13:35:01 <Dave from B> IMO, Language barrier is no excuse for a tour guide to not be partially at fault
13:36:35 <Betty> maybe static is stuck because they are already nailed to the floor on the path :-p
13:36:48 <Dave from B> haha
13:38:01 <Dave from B> What do you think would happen to a US citizen if we trespassed on a sacred temple in another country? Pretend Donald Duck wouldn't bail you out.
13:55:45 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
13:56:02 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1555
13:56:05 <ynpvisitor999> night Betty
13:57:12 <Dave from B> So the solution is a invisible dog fence with people issued collars at the gate?
13:58:38 <Kevin L™> night Betty
13:59:01 <Kevin L™> I like it Dave
13:59:33 <ynpvisitor1> The solution is big fines for the bus companies - money talks
14:04:42 <Kevin L™> Frankly the bus tours should have to have a lecture on proper behavior in the park in the language of the people coming in. Any violation will result in the entire group being ejected from all National parks.
14:11:43 <Eric> or 3 strikes and the company is no longer allowed to tour in the park.
14:12:06 <Kevin L™> Make it 2 and I will go for that.
14:13:27 <Eric> haha...those peopled didn't even notice that coyote
14:13:32 <Dave from B> coyote's getting a bit habituated
14:13:32 <Kevin L™> Seems most of the issues are from the tour groups where they let them run.
14:14:15 <Dave from B> Time top go home. Have a great evening everyone!
14:14:29 <Kevin L™> Night Dave.
14:14:32 <Eric> Night Dave
14:14:35 <ynpvisitor999> night Dave
14:14:52 <Kevin L™> Coyote looks homeless. "Will pose for food"
