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