00:01:43 <ynpvisitor26> Looks like something from a 50's sci-fi movie.
03:48:36 <ynpvisitor47> Lion ie
07:02:58 <Mike J> Came in just in time for Grand
07:06:59 <Dave from B> Good timing Mike J
07:11:55 <Mike J> dremaed last night that both Great Fountain and Giantess were about to go off and I was torn between which one to watch. You can tell that's a dream. That isn't a delimma.
07:20:45 <Dave from B> C'mon Mike...a real dream would have had Excelsior vs. Steamboat!:)
07:34:30 <Mike J> True Dvae, but then it would have actually been a delimma.
07:35:10 <Mike J> (Great morning. I can't even type Dave correctly)
07:51:04 <Jimbo Antimony> Mike, read your dream comment. What was the Giantess Indicator?
07:52:30 <Mike J> Jimbo. I think it was full and overflowing. By the way, I don't think I'd write that one up for the Sput
07:53:28 <Jimbo Antimony> I guess we need better premonitions
07:54:13 <Mike J> I should also note that, in the dream, Giantess was next to Great Fountain. Maybe an alternate universe?
07:55:10 <Jimbo Antimony> That dual would be fun
08:46:23 <Jimbo Antimony> Zzzzz...
08:47:17 <Dave from B> I miss our field reporter
08:48:28 <ynpvisitor32> Yes Graham made it very interesting
08:50:51 <Dave from B> Less than 3 months to the summer season!:)
08:52:15 <ynpvisitor32> I think in the winter they should always have 2 or 3 free rooms just for gazers
08:54:22 <ynpvisitor32> Register and coordinate through GOSA, they would have boots on the ground all winter long
08:55:40 <Dave from B> Would be nice but not going to happen. We would have to fundraise to build our own "hostel".
09:07:51 <Jimbo Antimony> Hey WHAT
09:07:59 <Jimbo Antimony> :bee: ie
09:08:10 <Jimbo Antimony> A little late for a text ...
09:08:42 <Dave from B> woohoo
09:08:51 <Jimbo Antimony> .
09:08:52 <Jimbo Antimony> .
09:08:53 <Jimbo Antimony> .
09:09:05 <Mike J> Text made me come back here
09:09:17 <Dave from B> Text made me look up:)
09:09:17 <Jimbo Antimony> You know, I saw it steaming a few minutes ago and thought it looked ambitious
09:09:53 <ynpvisitor32> I got the text out as quick as I could
09:10:02 <Dave from B> Thanks 32
09:13:02 <Joe> no indy
09:14:21 <Jimbo Antimony> Just looked at intervals, BH intervals are getting fairly stable at 14 hours
09:26:38 <Joe> Daidy
09:26:47 <Joe> Daisy*
10:01:53 <Kevin L™> Looking for NoDoz®
10:02:25 <Joe> Your gonna need it.
10:03:41 <Dave from B> You can always look for Aurum
10:03:45 <Kevin L™> Joe used up all the geysers.
10:04:08 <Joe> Sorry :)
10:04:47 <Dave from B> Someone waved at us
10:08:28 <Joe> I see David A PDX is watching
10:09:08 <Dave from B> That's a blast from the past. Welcome Mr PDX
10:11:16 <Joe> I assume that seeing how there's 2 sprinkler posts in a row marked David
10:13:27 <Kevin L™> Well, if that is the only thing erupting...
10:13:44 <Joe> OF soon
10:14:02 <Jimbo Antimony> Bison in the mist
10:14:46 <Kevin L™> I was hoping they would be around today.
10:16:04 <Joe> OF static
10:17:38 <Kevin L™> Oops. Read that one as 36m instead of 1h36m.
10:24:02 <Dave from B> If anyone looking for 12" of snow, I found it:(
10:26:37 <Joe> Keep it
10:27:12 <Kevin L™> You can keep it. I do have a bunch of 76° sun though.
10:30:01 <Dave from B> We're getting more tonight so I do have extra!:)
10:30:23 <Kevin L™> Pack your fish in it!
10:31:03 <Jake> what is snow?
10:31:42 <Kevin L™> The stuff they used to have in Park City Jake.
11:19:24 <ynpvisitor90> Riverside ie
11:19:50 <Kevin L™> We need a dronecam.
11:21:07 <Jake> bison by Lion
11:21:44 <Kevin L™> Good eye. Must not have snow in it.
11:22:00 <Jake> not much grass there!
11:22:28 <Kevin L™> Should keep the hoofs warm.
11:23:02 <Kevin L™> He is camera shy
11:25:24 <Betty> morning guys
11:25:37 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty.
11:25:54 <Betty> hi Kevin
11:41:03 <ynpvisitor29> looks windy
11:41:52 <Kevin L™> And cold
11:50:54 <Betty> doggies heading up towards Lion
12:00:37 <Betty> looks like Grotto
12:00:55 <Kevin L™> Think so.
12:01:02 <Betty> where is Graham when you need him ;-)
12:01:54 <Betty> Can´t await Jim heading in for summer season :-)
12:02:22 <Kevin L™> Me too. It was nice to have Graham there.
12:02:43 <Kevin L™> He did have a bad knight yesterday.
12:07:02 <Jimbo Antimony> How was his bishop?
12:08:03 <Kevin L™> I don't know about his bishop, but his goalie knocked the winning goal in with his glove.
12:08:03 <Dave from B> At least he wasn't someone's pawn
12:10:34 <Jimbo Antimony> Speaking of that game (I'm from there too) we did ponder why if a player hits a goalie's blocker with his stick and then pushes him in the crease with the stick between his pads, how that does not constitute goalie interference.
12:11:13 <Jimbo Antimony> But that's hockey for ya
12:11:39 <Dave from B> It seems if the puck is loose in the crease there aren't many rules
12:11:57 <Kevin L™> I guess the same way you can bloody a nose with a stick and not get a penalty.
12:13:30 <Kevin L™> Wasn't a bad game though. The guys I felf bad for were the Flames on the game last Monday. Leading with 1:46 to go and lose by two!
12:13:47 <Jimbo Antimony> Yeah, that's tough.
12:14:21 <Jimbo Antimony> My son's a goalie and said if you're getting pushed you can't do what you need to do.
12:14:42 <Kevin L™> Those fans were in a state of shock.
12:15:18 <Jimbo Antimony> And they also have to figure out what constitutes high-sticking. In the Caps-Pens game, Brian Rust lifted Nick Backstrom's stick right into his face, and Backstrom got called for high-sticking.
12:15:44 <Jimbo Antimony> But that's hockey for ya :-}
12:16:22 <Kevin L™> In Canadian Football you can challenge a ref's call and also a non call.
12:16:36 <Kevin L™> Lot of speed means room for a lot of errors.
12:18:42 <Betty> Daisy
12:19:56 <Jimbo Antimony> Exactly, Kevin L. I record my son's games for analysis, and we had a game where the puck clearly hit the post and bounced onto the ice in front of the goal. Refs called it a goal. I'm not demonstrative but I raised my voice.
12:20:32 <Jimbo Antimony> Showed them the footage after the game and they admitted they blew it. Fortunately in terms of the season, all that suffered was his save percentage.
12:21:17 <Kevin L™> I school sports I don't yell at the kids, but the refs get paid so I don't feel bad about giving them a ration. I am mostly ploite about it though.
12:21:40 <Jimbo Antimony> I just loudly chanted "That wasn't a goal!" three times.
12:22:33 <Jimbo Antimony> The coach sent my clip to the referee's committee. Even though it's a totally thankless job, they need to learn not to make a call they aren't sure of.
12:23:52 <Kevin L™> That is why I like the replays in the higher sports. It does take a bit of the pressure off a ref. Shoot, in hockey they spend half their time just trying to stay alive!
12:24:39 <Betty> Kevin, I´m compiling a fotobook of our last trip to US. I put in the pictures of the eclipse yesterday :-)
12:25:50 <Kevin L™> That was sure fun. I still get a kick out of my Granddaughter wanting to go and do the eclipse again that afternoon.
12:26:12 <Betty> yeah, hehe
12:27:35 <Kevin L™> I am glad she got to see it. She probably doesn't know much about it still but she will remember once she gets into science classes.
12:29:35 <ynpvisitor90> Coyot
12:29:55 <Betty> yes, critter
12:29:56 <Kevin L™> Where?
12:30:17 <Betty> going to the left
12:30:21 <ynpvisitor90> Behind boardwalk left side
12:30:47 <Betty> Castle area now
12:31:03 <Betty> just behind bw
12:31:45 <Betty> bw
12:31:56 <Betty> down a bit
12:33:23 <Betty> you found it
12:34:31 <Kevin L™> I can see why I missed it. Blends right in.
12:36:37 <ynpvisitor90> Sure miss Grahams turban and other geyser reports
12:46:42 <Betty> hi Ryan
12:46:46 <Ryan> Kevin, our motor firing yesterday was flawless. 38,500N-sec; and the redesigned seal joint saved the motor casing. No leaking and no thermal damage.
12:46:50 <Ryan> Hi, Betty!
12:47:04 <Ryan> I don't have to stand in front of a lathe and make all new hardware, I am a happy engineer...
12:47:52 <Kevin L™> Nice Ryan. When does it go in the air?
12:49:49 <Ryan> March 9.
12:50:11 <Ryan> 31,000ft and Mach 1.8. Always a good feeling knowing the next one is going to be pointed up and not down.
12:50:36 <Kevin L™> That will be a lot more fun. Where will you be doing it?
12:51:30 <Ryan> Argonia, Kansas. Kloudbusters Launch
12:52:33 <Kevin L™> Shouldn't have to rescue it from a tree out there!
12:52:50 <Kevin L™> How loud is the sonic boom they make?
12:52:56 <ynpvisitor603> Grand?
12:53:13 <Kevin L™> That is Grand
12:53:30 <Kevin L™> Should get it in before OF!
12:53:48 <Betty> nice
12:54:04 <ynpvisitor603> Sub 6 hour intervals
12:54:43 <Ryan> You can't hear the boom over the noise of the motor. That said, the vehicle is big enough that we should have some amazing mach vapor cones!
12:54:45 <Ryan> Brb
12:54:57 <Ryan> https://www.flickr.com/photos/131878030@N04/39391820704/in/dateposted-public/
12:55:19 <Ryan> Firing photo, you'll also see comparison photos of the thermal seal from this motro (FPS-52) and the old one (FPS-52)
12:56:40 <Eric> Your rocket is going the wrong way Ryan!
12:56:48 <Eric> and Hello all :-D
12:57:03 <Kevin L™> Hi Eric
12:57:04 <Betty> hi Eric
12:57:04 <Eric> I hope falcon heavy doesn't do that tomorrow
13:00:35 <ynpvisitor29> too bad, someone showing up late for Grand
13:02:38 <ynpvisitor90> 2nd
13:04:22 <Eric> and looks like a wrap
13:05:56 <Kevin L™> That 2nd was late in.
13:06:06 <Eric> yes, right at 10m I think
13:07:08 <Dave from B> Maybe Ryans rocket is going the right way...he does like the underground:)
13:08:15 <Kevin L™> Make you own cave?
13:10:50 <Ryan> We were drilling to China
13:12:09 <Dave from B> I thought you were making a cave for nuclear waste storage
13:12:42 <Kevin L™> That is just north of me Dave.
13:13:06 <Eric> salt mines are great nuclear waste storage locations.
13:13:33 <Eric> shallow storage bunkers right next to one of the largest rivers in North America is a horrible place :-P
13:14:44 <Eric> Hanford so needs to be dealt with by the federal government, but it keeps getting kicked from on president to the next. Probably have to have a major disaster before somebody does something about it :-(
13:15:26 <Eric> Sorry, Hanford is a sore spot for me as I live down river of it.
13:16:16 <Kevin L™> Frankly I don't see a problem with Yucca Mountain although Carson City would be a much better place.
13:19:05 <Dave from B> I understand Eric...dry desert in the middle of no where is probably the best...not hanford
13:20:28 <Kevin L™> Besides, you is going to want to live near Yucca Mountain. Just have the State tax the storage and give the revenue to the citizens. Bet there wouldn't be objections then!
13:24:11 <Kevin L™> We even have a locomotive at our museum from there. (Named after an ex senator from the state.) http://www.nevadasouthern.com/Sub%20Pages/locomotive_l-3.html
13:25:30 <Kevin L™> Did you see there are some good discounts at the snow lodge for fringe season?
13:26:31 <Dave from B> Yes, for there, Mammoth and Lake Hotel
13:27:00 <Dave from B> Pick out the fringe season when it will be in the 60s and i'll be there!
13:36:34 <ynpvisitor999> Castle?
13:36:59 <Kevin L™> Yes
13:38:01 <ynpvisitor999> right. This would put the previous eruption of Castle around 0000 last night. Couldn't see it due to snow being stuck on the dome
13:38:34 <Kevin L™> Why did you stick snow on the dome?
13:39:16 <ynpvisitor999> I dunno. I accidentally sent some snow to the wrong country I think :(
13:39:47 <Kevin L™> Are you the one who hit Dave?
13:39:53 <Eric> Anyone else excited about Falcon Heavy Test Launch? 45 years since we have been able to launch something so large.
13:40:32 <Kevin L™> When and where? Any launch excites me.
13:41:11 <ynpvisitor999> Dave got hit with what?
13:41:25 <Kevin L™> Snow
13:41:58 <ynpvisitor999> I think you should blame WindExpress, as I ordered snow for my country, and not for Yellowstone
13:42:36 <ynpvisitor90> i hope the Falcon heavy launch is very successful.
13:43:07 <Kevin L™> Me too. They are fun to watch.
13:43:26 <ynpvisitor999> For Yellowstone I ordered an earthquake right under Giantess, aswell as one for Norris (please note that these eq's are only intended to get Giantess going again, aswell as Norris)
13:43:31 <Dave from B> What are we launching?
13:43:58 <ynpvisitor999> wasn't it a tesla car?
13:44:03 <ynpvisitor90> Feb 6 1:30 pm et KSC
13:44:44 <ynpvisitor90> Sending a red tesla to orbit mars
13:44:45 <Kevin L™> Darn, I was hoping for a west coast. I can see those.
13:47:12 <Dave from B> To orbit or to drive around the planet? Isn't it a car?
13:47:42 <Jake> I read that it's technically not going to "orbit Mars" but to the distance of "Mars' orbit" and Mars will be nowhere close to the payload
13:48:53 <ynpvisitor999> even if that car was intended to drive on Mars, it would be pretty much a one-time only thing, as there is no electric infrastructure on Mars (yet)
13:49:19 <Jake> "The Falcon Heavy is supposed to put the car (as well as the passenger, presumably) into an orbit around the Sun known as a Hohmann transfer orbit. This path will take the car as far out from the Sun as the distance of Mars’ orbit. However, the car won’t be going anywhere near Mars, so there’s no risk of the car contaminating the planet with Earth microbes.:
13:49:43 <ynpvisitor999> right, interesting
13:49:48 <Kevin L™> I thought those rover were really cool.
13:51:02 <ynpvisitor90> Musk intends to launch the Tesla into an elliptical orbit around the Sun, a Hohmann Transfer Orbit, that will bring the vehicle near Mars.
13:52:28 <Kevin L™> It is amazing how they figure that stuff.
14:17:45 <Jimbo Antimony> Hohmann transfer orbit -- shades of "Stardance" !
14:18:15 <Ryan> Kevin - maxed out at 1200lbf
14:18:24 <Ryan> Total impulse was 36,400N-sec.
14:23:08 <ynpvisitor999> Aurum
14:23:09 <ynpvisitor999> .
14:23:10 <ynpvisitor999> .
14:23:10 <ynpvisitor999> .
14:23:32 <Kevin L™> Aurum
14:23:48 <ynpvisitor999> not sure if it started 1422 or 1423
14:24:00 <Betty> yeah
14:24:03 <Kevin L™> 1422
14:24:30 <Betty> doggie Aurum :-)
14:24:31 <Kevin L™> OF tried to hide it.
14:24:33 <Jimbo Antimony> Missed Grand but I glimpsed Aurum
14:24:58 <ynpvisitor999> on static too
14:27:09 <Betty> I just had 2 Aurum Cone pics put in the Album :-)
14:30:27 <Dave from B> Yep...better to get a picture of what it does 23 hours and 57 minutes a day
14:31:25 <ynpvisitor73> It is a conspiracy.
14:31:26 <Betty> unfortunately I´m not the lucky owner of a close-up-eruption :-p
14:31:45 <Betty> * picture
14:31:56 <Kevin L™> I have a few.
14:32:35 <ynpvisitor73> Conspiracy's, or pictures of Aurum doing nothing?
14:32:37 <Betty> wonder how you managed that :-D
14:33:14 <Dave from B> Betty, he has splinters to proce it!
14:33:18 <Dave from B> prove*
14:33:29 <Betty> :-D
14:35:57 <ynpvisitor73> 401k's took a hit today.
14:36:23 <Betty> Aurum afterburst on static
14:36:55 <Betty> someone saw that?
14:37:49 <ynpvisitor29> I'm amazed the market did not correct with this clown as president a LOT sooner
14:38:14 <ynpvisitor999> I did not, Betty
14:38:41 <Kevin L™> I missed it too Betty.
14:39:03 <ynpvisitor999> if it was an afterburst, almost like an eruption, you've seen a rare thing
14:39:20 <Betty> bummer. I I had not known it just erupted I would have called this one
14:39:30 <Betty> If*
14:39:48 <ynpvisitor73> 29, did you read about all the college kids not liking what the last clown said in speeches?
14:40:13 <ynpvisitor29> there is only one clown
14:40:18 <ynpvisitor29> well in charge
14:41:58 <ynpvisitor73> All those new jobs are hurting the economy, we should do something to put them out of work so things improve.
14:42:15 <ynpvisitor29> 73, there are no new jobs
14:42:50 <ynpvisitor73> So where did the 200,000 number come from?
14:43:13 <ynpvisitor29> I'm not going to argue this with you here. More lost jobs than new ones. READ.
14:43:40 <Dave from B> Forget lost jobs...I can't even fill the 2 openings I have
14:44:29 <ynpvisitor29> Yellowstone Lake looks nice today
14:44:44 <Ryan> ^indeed it does :)
14:44:45 <ynpvisitor29> sorry to hear that Dave. Good help is hard to find
14:44:47 <Kevin L™> And that is just shoveling snow Dave.
14:44:48 <Dave from B> I shouls have had more kids:)
14:45:24 <Betty> you need Grandkids :-)
14:45:34 <ynpvisitor29> coming soon Betty
14:45:48 <ynpvisitor29> well first let them get married I guess
14:46:01 <ynpvisitor29> that sky looks ominous
14:46:19 <Kevin L™> OF should have good contrast.
14:46:45 <ynpvisitor29> yes, it will be nice
14:47:22 <Kevin L™> Lion should be soon too.
14:47:51 <ynpvisitor29> what is that behind OF?
14:48:57 <ynpvisitor999> where exactly?
14:49:01 <ynpvisitor73> 29, I don't see any lost jobs here. https://www.statista.com/topics/771/employment/ It looks like all good numbers, but will to look at your facts.
14:50:39 <ynpvisitor29> anenome area
14:51:07 <Betty> Think it is a small snow field
14:51:31 <ynpvisitor73> Snow, i thought Graham took it all home.
14:51:33 <ynpvisitor29> thanks Betty, I was wondering, it seemed to be moving, yet it is not, just the steam
14:51:46 <Kevin L™> Think OF steam makes it look like it is doing something.
14:51:57 <Betty> It it there since the sun came out
14:52:32 <ynpvisitor29> come on OF, erupt in this nice light
14:52:36 <Kevin L™> Hope OF goes soon while this dark spot is there.
14:53:27 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1452
14:53:38 <Kevin L™> Wow!
14:53:39 <ynpvisitor29> nice
14:53:46 <Kevin L™> Static will be good
14:53:58 <Kevin L™> Yes!
14:54:02 <ynpvisitor29> not a good capture
14:54:09 <Dave from B> FYI, Taylor is engaged. Wedding most likely in June 2019.
14:54:16 <ynpvisitor29> mine is small
14:54:21 <Kevin L™> :) Congrats Dave!
14:54:34 <ynpvisitor29> did you have a good static shot Kevin?
14:54:34 <Kevin L™> I got a tall one
14:54:42 <ynpvisitor999> Congrats, Dave
14:54:46 <ynpvisitor29> I thought so Dave, that is what I was remarking about
14:55:02 <ynpvisitor29> bring him into the business??
14:55:25 <Kevin L™> Hey, that is a good way to get those employees!
14:55:27 <Dave from B> No plans for that; he is in the management track at Costco
14:55:57 <Kevin L™> Maybe he can do something about the prices of glasses....
14:56:18 <ynpvisitor17> Discount chocolate cinnamon bears
14:56:35 <ynpvisitor73> Big box retail does not seem to be a good place these days.
14:57:00 <Dave from B> :D 17
14:57:08 <ynpvisitor73> At least Costco closes early on Saturdays
14:57:18 <Kevin L™> Costco down here does not seem to be having problems. Lines at Disneyland are shorter.
14:58:57 <Kevin L™> Should be a Daisy soon if wind does not delay it.
14:59:44 <Dave from B> Same with Costco here. I only go during first 90 minutes of their business day
15:00:24 <Kevin L™> They only have 2 in the valley. There is a 3rd one that will open soon.
15:04:27 <ynpvisitor999> I call it a day for today. Bye all
15:04:42 <Betty> night DG
15:04:43 <Kevin L™> Night
15:06:21 <Kevin L™> Amtrak Southwest Chief is about to pull into Los Angeles 8h13m late. Would that wrok in Germany Betty?
15:06:39 <Dave from B> At least it stayed on the track
15:07:00 <Kevin L™> That is a plus
15:09:00 <Kevin L™> Daisy
15:09:39 <Ryan> Kevin - O4204, the ballistic performances were off from the last motor by less than 4%.
15:09:44 <ynpvisitor73> Depends on where it came from. If it came from Vegas, that would be real bad. From Chicago, is not so bad.
15:10:19 <Kevin L™> Not bad Ryan.
15:10:49 <Kevin L™> If it came from Vegas 73, it has some serious problems.
15:11:24 <Kevin L™> It is a Chicago to LA train.
15:12:18 <ynpvisitor73> So it lost 8 hours from Vegas? Can't you hitch hike in less time?
15:12:40 <Betty> We had ICE´s late for about 5 hrs 2 years ago in a hot summer. lots of people needed help because A/C did not work and they could not get out of the cars. The temperatures inside were around 120 °F
15:12:53 <Kevin L™> From Chicago. Amtrak doesn't go through Vegas anymore.
15:13:21 <Kevin L™> That is hot for you guys.
15:13:37 <Kevin L™> And on an ICE train to boot!
15:14:12 <Betty> it was about 90 outside
15:14:29 <Kevin L™> That is also toasty for you.
15:15:18 <Betty> time for sleep. night all
15:15:36 <Kevin L™> I know the military trains were treated like 3rd class freight there. I remember sitting on sidings for hours.
15:15:41 <Kevin L™> Night Betty.
15:15:58 <ynpvisitor73> Well enjoy. Depression must not like who won the game, it is staying in today.
15:17:00 <Kevin L™> At least Kyle Busch won the race.
15:18:19 <Dave from B> Kevin, No Amtrak thru LV? Any other passenger train thru Vegas?
15:19:05 <Kevin L™> Nope, unless you count the museum. Had the Desert Wind but I think that ended in the 90s.
15:21:02 <Kevin L™> Yep May 97 was the last run. You can get an Amtrak bus to make a connection to Barstow.
15:21:23 <Kevin L™> Lion
15:21:28 <Dave from B> Planes are so cheap out of Vegas anyway
15:22:54 <Kevin L™> Lions and bison and steam, Oh my.
15:25:00 <Kevin L™> Betty missed a good Lion.
15:25:44 <ynpvisitor17> Kevin did ypu mean Lion on GT
15:26:00 <ynpvisitor17> you*
15:26:43 <Kevin L™> Thanks.
15:28:49 <Kevin L™> Nice BH splash
15:38:03 <Dave from B> It's only been 6.5 hours since BH
15:39:41 <Kevin L™> But it was a nice splash!
15:41:31 <ynpvisitor116> maybe bee is competing with Grand for "how low can you go"
15:42:10 <Graham> hello
15:42:12 <Dave from B> Welcome home Graham
15:42:37 <Graham> grrrrr
15:42:46 <Kevin L™> Even if you had a bad Knight yesterday
15:43:04 <Graham> it was good, NE lost
15:43:41 <Graham> and i beat the rush out of MSP
15:44:13 <Graham> Grand has a chance for 5 today or tomorrow if it keeps this up
15:44:37 <Kevin L™> It was hidden in a snow dome last night.
15:45:12 <Graham> theres a time now
15:45:24 <Graham> and another Aurum, its way too predictable
15:46:36 <Graham> what happened to the snow that was supposed to happen?
15:46:38 <Kevin L™> You could even get a BH.
15:46:50 <Kevin L™> Dave took it.
15:47:55 <Kevin L™> Canmore got it: https://canmorealberta.com/webcams/three-sisters
15:48:43 <Kevin L™> Looks like some may be moving in right now.
15:49:04 <Dave from B> I didn't take it...it arrived uninvited
15:52:11 <Kevin L™> Snow is against the law here.
15:53:16 <Graham> so how come you have ice there?
15:53:38 <Kevin L™> To put in drinks
15:53:58 <Graham> and scate on
15:54:16 <Graham> or is it dancing
15:54:41 <Kevin L™> I think it is called "winning".
15:56:12 <Graham> next time wil be different
15:57:03 <Kevin L™> We did appreciate your goalie knocking in the puck with his glove....
15:57:30 <Graham> glad I missed it
15:58:11 <Kevin L™> It could have been worse, you could be a Calgary fan!
15:58:26 <Graham> or Sabres
15:58:35 <Graham> oops, sorry kcmule
16:00:04 <Kevin L™> Those poor fans in Calgary were in a state of shock.
16:00:40 <Graham> i am clueless
16:02:06 <Jimbo Antimony> Hey, Graham, take it from me. Ouch.
16:02:29 <Graham> nice clear bench there
16:09:03 <Dave from B> Did it scrape the snow to get more comfortable, Graham?
16:09:11 <Dave from B> it = you* sorry Graham
16:11:07 <Dave from B> Kevin, when do drivers head to Daytona for entire week of racing
16:11:21 <Kevin L™> Today
16:12:12 <Graham> it was pretty easy to knowck the ice slab off the bench at bee. there was a gap in the snow there too
16:12:15 <Kevin L™> They have a few things this week and the ARCA runs Saturday.
16:12:40 <Graham> also made a nice spot at F&M which turned out handy
16:13:06 <Jake> Graham, anything different about this year's winter trip than in past years? other than your ultra-lucky F&M?
16:13:09 <Dave from B> Were you surprised that the Aurum Ice Bowl was not there?
16:13:19 <Kevin L™> The clash is Sunday and the duels are Thursday.
16:14:00 <Graham> it was all skillful timing Jake
16:14:10 <Graham> Giant activity was the other standout
16:14:37 <Graham> not too surprised about Aurum, confirmed its not as frequent as before
16:14:38 <Kevin L™> Sounds like you got your money's worth.
16:15:26 <Graham> that activity made up for all the things that dont eruot anu more, like the whole Sawmill group. Not jet eruptions either
16:16:34 <Graham> week in winter isnt that much different in cost for me, avoided renting a car but I spent more on food
16:16:46 <Graham> compared to summer
16:17:14 <Graham> so the car/snowcoach costs were about a wash. Cabin is same price
16:18:05 <Graham> took the bus from BZN airport to Mammoth
16:20:19 <Jake> and you confirmed Bulger activity too
16:20:48 <Jake> that little white cloud has been showing up frequently this winter
16:20:53 <Graham> how could i forget that highlight
16:21:17 <Graham> and frequent Grotto eruptions, no marathins all week
16:21:23 <Jake> so glad you saw F&M on effectively a walk up. Of course it takes someone with your knowledge to know to wait and give it a chance
16:22:18 <Graham> that was the very windy day, i was planning to shelter there for a while. knew something was up but didnt get into watching too closely until i heard the continuous action from High
16:22:56 <Jake> I'm just now looking at the wc capture. F&M steam is very subtle because of the wind!
16:23:20 <Jake> just some short wisps of steam over the trees
16:23:24 <Jake> OF ns
16:23:58 <Kevin L™> Pretty awesome you got it!
16:24:18 <Graham> it was windy down there, not very sheltered but seeing the steam venting from Main and Bottom still spitting water indicated something was up
16:24:47 <Graham> there were a few ice layers in the snow there too, so its been doing something
16:25:02 <Kevin L™> Not too many winter reports on that one.
16:25:03 <Graham> the years its been frequent in winter i have missed it at night
16:25:09 <Jake> the F&M: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYZNVz5NqMA&t=1h58m30s
16:27:59 <Graham> view was much more satisfying from the other side
16:36:38 <Graham> dep?
16:37:23 <Graham> steamy but not seeing splashes
16:38:01 <Graham> glad i had that walk up Aurum Kevin, it was the only one close up
16:38:28 <Kevin L™> Another bad week for trains. Looks like a derailment has a main transcon line shut down for at least 48 hours in Iowa.
16:39:09 <Kevin L™> Nice to get at least one Graham.
16:40:46 <Graham> Lion
16:49:33 <Graham> dwarf
17:32:59 <Graham> riverside
17:37:03 <Michael> Hi Graham,
17:37:20 <Graham> hello
17:37:29 <Michael> Was there any sign of Oblong being active while you were there?
17:38:39 <Graham> none at all, no steam cloud sightings or empty craters
17:38:50 <Graham> i did see some heavy overflow
17:41:25 <Michael> Thanks. I'm starting to wonder if there's a 30-foot geyser plague sweeping the basin.
17:42:25 <Graham> could be :(
17:43:32 <Graham> Jewel is active
17:51:39 <Kevin L™> Daisy
17:51:46 <Graham> daisy
17:51:48 <Kevin L™> Lion too
17:52:00 <Kevin L™> Maybe Lion
17:52:01 <Graham> or not
17:54:58 <ynpvisitor63> OF
17:54:58 <Graham> of
17:58:52 <ynpvisitor63> Lion?
17:59:08 <Graham> or not
17:59:26 <ynpvisitor63> Probably not
17:59:26 <Kevin L™> Growling.
18:00:14 <Michael> Running out of chances.
18:00:39 <Kevin L™> Needs CPR
18:01:14 <Graham> at least it had 2 .... i was there for one of the singles, waiting for the second
18:05:10 <ynpvisitor9> :lion:
18:05:18 <Kevin L™> Barely made the light
18:05:28 <Michael> Color me surprised!
18:07:41 <Graham> and restarts
18:08:06 <Kevin L™> A 2 burst Lion!
18:08:49 <Michael> What's the code for that? L2Q?
18:11:58 <ynpvisitor63> Glad I waited.
18:12:17 <ynpvisitor63> Good night, everyone!
18:13:32 <Michael> Good night, 63.
18:41:24 <Graham> grand
18:42:43 <Graham> or maybe it was turban
18:48:43 <ynpvisitor102> mystery geysers in the twilight
18:48:53 <ynpvisitor102> a light in the basin
19:05:02 <Graham> grand?
19:05:17 <Graham> lion
19:08:14 <Graham> not sure if lion was aminor?
19:08:44 <Graham> looked longer to me
19:08:51 <ynpvisitor56> Lion came back. I'm trying to delete my entry but GT is having issues
19:09:15 <Graham> ok
19:09:38 <Kevin L™> GT needs a comfort dog.
19:10:35 <Graham> my ie shows up now, so you can put the start in again
19:11:39 <Graham> goodnight
22:25:46 <ynpvisitor88> Beograd
