06:21:40 <ynpvisitor61> looks like a long
06:21:54 <Kevin L™> Hey Betty, Would you believe the USA Mens Curlers ended round robin 6th and are in the playoffs? We play Canada today.
06:23:09 <ynpvisitor61> where do you watch curling?
06:24:24 <Kevin L™> Olympic Channel, NBC Sports Network. It is in Las Vegas this year.
06:24:54 <ynpvisitor61> thank you
06:26:29 <Kevin L™> Looks like Olympic channel today. I think you can stream it on the net. Google mens championship curling.
06:44:32 <ynpvisitor69> Thanks for the zoom on the buffalo. Enjoyed seeing the wolves yesterday.
07:04:58 <ynpvisitor61> Riverside ie
08:06:05 <Graham> doggies
08:06:58 <Graham> i wonder if they are friends of the wolves?
08:12:34 <ynpvisitor57> dinner friends?
08:13:33 <Graham> trying to get the wolves to come here so we get a better look?
08:16:25 <ynpvisitor57> they knocked the stump over
08:18:52 <Graham> is it still morning?
08:19:04 <Graham> i guess so
08:19:06 <ynpvisitor57> fraid so
08:20:02 <ynpvisitor57> mt, right coasters are now afternoon
08:34:40 <ynpvisitor77> I see they have not gotten very far on the Bison trap.
08:40:31 <Graham> hard t otell if tghe feed is stuck or not
08:40:37 <Graham> oooh there it goes
08:41:39 <ynpvisitor57> it is funny how they all freeze at the same time
08:42:17 <Graham> the grass must be better on the other side
08:43:19 <ynpvisitor77> There is no grass on this side
08:44:07 <Graham> yet the yare still here
08:57:15 <ynpvisitor57> weather radar shows it is going to get really crappy again soon
09:10:05 <ynpvisitor77> It is warmer, so likely a good place to rest.
09:10:09 <ynpvisitor57> they are headed for wolf valley
09:25:55 <ynpvisitor77> Well, enjoy the sunny day.
09:27:33 <Michael> Will do. At least until the next weather comes through.
09:40:51 <Michael> OF
09:42:11 <Michael> (just noticed there isn't an Old Faithful icon, unless :gt: counts)
09:47:26 <Michael> Castle ie
09:50:07 <Michael> thinking about a minor eruption. I hope it doesn't stop to think for too long.
10:02:49 <Michael> I'm glad there wasn't a betting pool on whether Castle would be a minor or major.
10:27:39 <Michael> BHI
10:27:39 <Michael> .
10:27:40 <Michael> .
10:27:40 <Michael> .
10:27:41 <Michael> .
10:28:02 <Kevin L™> :)
10:28:12 <ynpvisitor83> Standing By
10:28:24 <Kevin L™> Got done training just in time! Do we need a test?
10:28:28 <ynpvisitor83> There we go!
10:28:30 <Kevin L™> text?
10:28:52 <ynpvisitor56> :)
10:28:53 <Michael> I'm off the system, so haven't sent anything.
10:29:15 <Kitt> yay indy
10:29:27 <Kevin L™> text sent
10:29:29 <Kitt> thanks for text
10:29:45 <Micah> text recieved.
10:29:50 <ynpvisitor83> Text here too
10:30:14 <Graham> dont thin it will make it to my shift
10:33:10 <Kitt> you can still watch it Graham
10:33:16 <ynpvisitor83> Wish Daisy would get it over with
10:34:04 <Graham> is it possible Daisy went early? I have not been watching but last interval was the shortest on GT
10:35:18 <ynpvisitor83> I have only been watching since noon
10:36:36 <Kitt> wish we knew when Giant erupted
10:36:59 <Micah> At least we know it's still erupting.
10:37:09 <Michael> If Daisy went before noon, it could have been missed. We were watching Castle pretty intently at the time.
10:37:14 <Graham> may it erupt for you opening week
10:37:17 <Kitt> wow that is a big blob on radar going thru upper Utah and Lower Idaho
10:38:12 <Micah> Graham I don't think I'll make it.
10:38:31 <Micah> I'm already pushing it by making a beeline to Mickey next weekend.
10:39:11 <Graham> good luck with that, hopefully someone will be there for the blue sky daylight Giant eruption
10:39:53 <Graham> it wouldnt take you long to run down from Anemone
10:40:12 <Micah> hopefully one of the, like 5 people that actually watches the cage.
10:40:25 <Micah> It would take me about 10 minutes.
10:40:38 <Micah> walking.
10:40:49 <Graham> which you wouldnt be doing
10:40:58 <Micah> fair.
10:41:38 <Graham> do you still have monitors at mickey?
10:41:45 <Micah> No.
10:42:07 <Graham> so just a quick site check?
10:42:18 <Micah> Meeting a couple people down there.
10:42:37 <Graham> ah, ok
10:43:08 <Micah> nice long indicator
10:43:27 <ynpvisitor83> Indie's geeting long. BH going to win this one.
10:43:33 <Kitt> Beehive

10:43:50 <Micah> Wait for it....wait for it....
10:44:02 <ynpvisitor10> is Betty off skiing?
10:44:14 <Micah> There it goes.
10:44:35 <Kevin L™> I think Betty did say she was skiing this weekend.
10:45:09 <ynpvisitor10> thanks Kevin, wondered where she has been
10:45:23 <Micah> Little Cub
10:45:54 <Graham> i wonder what LC is doing, series every few days?
10:46:06 <Graham> i often see steam there but no water
10:46:14 <Micah> I think it's getting stuck a lot.
10:46:24 <ynpvisitor10> Micah, coming to work in Yellowstone until you find a real job?
10:46:33 <Micah> Probably not.
10:46:45 <Micah> I have a potential job that I should be finding out if I got it in the next month or so.
10:46:51 <Micah> Yellowstone's like a plan D or E.
10:46:58 <ynpvisitor10> good luck
10:47:02 <Micah> Ty
10:47:22 <Kitt> bye indy
10:47:31 <ynpvisitor10> does Graham have Morning on his mind?
10:47:37 <Kevin L™> Work. Hate it when it gets in the way of fun.
10:48:03 <Graham> haha yeah, cant chane it now
10:48:38 <ynpvisitor10> Morning as in early or Morning as in the geyser?
10:48:47 <Kitt> thanks again for the text
10:48:48 <Graham> Bills Morning pictures were great
10:48:56 <Kitt> good luck Micah
10:49:04 <Micah> ty Kitt.
10:49:30 <ynpvisitor10> Michah has a lot of years ahead of work interfering with play, yet hopefully he will get a job that he LOVES
10:49:51 <ynpvisitor10> or at least LIKES
10:50:15 <Micah> As long as I get to look at rocks at some point, I'm good. It's a bonus if the job involves TELLING people about how cool rocks are.
11:12:37 <Graham> lc

12:20:12 <Graham> didnt expect to see DOme today, maybe thats an initial too?
12:24:13 <Betty> Yay, LC is active again. Nice
12:24:43 <Graham> and Dome will keep me busy
12:25:12 <Graham> wolfie chow is out there
12:26:37 <Betty> I bet. it is not nice that I don’t have streaming here on my iPad in Switzerland. I‘m blind :-(
12:27:00 <Graham> ah, we missed you for BH
12:27:08 <Graham> how is the snow?
12:28:03 <Betty> I just arrived today, no skiing yet. But they have lots of snow
12:28:33 <Graham> good. its been getting rained on in YNP
12:28:55 <Graham> dome
12:29:12 <Betty> The streets look like the bw in front of OF sign
12:29:44 <Betty> Groomed snow of several feet
12:30:03 <Betty> Streets are dry
12:31:00 <Graham> nice. when will you be skiing, early morning?
12:31:54 <Graham> daisy
12:42:39 <Graham> dome
12:42:40 <Betty> We usually head to the cablecar at about 9.15 am. With getting up and everything ready we start skiing at about 10 am. We finish at 4 pm.
12:43:48 <Graham> hope you have a great time
12:44:52 <Betty> I hope so too. Time for sleep now. Bye.

15:05:19 <Graham> GT needs to move their Daisy prediction earlier
15:05:46 <Graham> they are all before the prediction window
15:05:57 <Kevin L™> It did have a 5h interval this week.
15:06:10 <Graham> yeah but more are on the early side
15:07:07 <Kevin L™> I am not sure how they predict but this week it had a bunch of long intervals. That could make for a longer prediction.
15:07:32 <Graham> if it were 2h25-3h25 it would do better
15:13:25 <Graham> lc
15:16:10 <Graham> dome
15:24:32 <ynpvisitor105> Daisy is so wind affected
15:25:05 <ynpvisitor105> wish the temp was not dropping
15:26:09 <Kevin L™> Have they been working on the bw today or is it a M-F job?
15:27:08 <Graham> i have not seen anyone working
15:27:49 <Kevin L™> Isn't that normal for a government job anyway?
15:30:23 <Graham> it should be
15:31:31 <Graham> the bison may have driven them away
15:32:10 <Kevin L™> I used to be the guy standing looking in the hole. Of course being the inspector, that WAS my job!
15:32:44 <Graham> but only Mon-Fri?
15:33:15 <Kevin L™> I had some jobs that were 24/7.
15:33:51 <ynpvisitor105> I don't think they worked Friday, there was no progress. They work 4 10's, M-Th and they might be traveling back and forth from Mammoth.
15:33:59 <Kevin L™> One March I had 160 hours straight time and 172 hours OT.
15:34:18 <Graham> dome
15:34:41 <Kevin L™> That would make a lot of sense. Get a LOT more work done when you don't have a 2h commute.
15:34:42 <ynpvisitor105> that is a lot of time Kevin
15:35:44 <Kevin L™> It was horrible. I was glad when it was over. Had split shifts weekdays and 12 shifts weekends.
15:35:55 <ynpvisitor43> I thought they were working yesterday.
15:35:58 <ynpvisitor105> I am guessing the project will go weeks into the season. Thankfully there is the concrete pathway, so folks can go around wherever they are working.
15:36:32 <Graham> inn will still be closed too
15:36:39 <ynpvisitor105> I disagree 43.
15:36:46 <ynpvisitor105> I did not watch all day though
15:37:27 <Kevin L™> I bet those are hard jobs when you have to work around the crowds.
15:37:31 <ynpvisitor105> yes, the reverse of closing. Only Geyser Grill and VEC open to start.
15:39:06 <ynpvisitor43> There was mention in the log.

16:15:56 <Kevin L™> Did you see a bus in Canada carrying a junior league hockey team crashed into a semi? So far 15 fatalities. Tragic.
16:17:36 <Graham> lc
16:17:58 <Graham> saw it on the news, horrible
16:30:56 <Graham> dome
16:47:44 <Graham> lc
16:49:19 <ynpvisitor50> You make it snow again Graham?
16:49:36 <Graham> its still above freezing
16:52:45 <Graham> dome
17:09:21 <ynpvisitor50> Are the cherry blossoms going to make it?
17:09:46 <Graham> I see Lion had 12 majors and 3 minors 4/1-2. i didnt see any NG activity tho
17:10:11 <Graham> long series
17:12:34 <Graham> no snow for uss or rain, so they will be ok.
17:14:29 <Graham> dome
17:20:58 <Graham> lc
17:21:24 <ynpvisitor50> They are due about now aren't they?
17:22:08 <Graham> its a bit early for Grand and Daisy
17:22:48 <Graham> maybe now?
17:24:41 <Graham> is it frozen?
17:27:11 <ynpvisitor50> I am on iPad and it isn't running.
17:27:20 <ynpvisitor89> up and running! woot!
17:28:18 <Graham> ok, for some reason i lost the cam control
17:32:24 <ynpvisitor50> I bet power is out
17:34:17 <Graham> not sure if it was troube my end or at thecam control. power is ok now
17:34:20 <Graham> dome
17:37:37 <ynpvisitor50> Works here
17:48:20 <ynpvisitor50> I had a time I think Tuesday that I missed OF and the controls disconnected. I bet the power was off then too.
17:49:12 <Graham> i was worried about missing Dome and LC :)
17:50:22 <ynpvisitor50> Benches should come out soon in this weather.
17:51:44 <ynpvisitor50> It was 94 here today. Pretty toasty for this time of year.
17:53:46 <kcmule> aurum ie
17:55:44 <ynpvisitor50> That was fun
17:56:51 <Graham> dome
17:57:48 <Graham> dont think i missed LC but its late
17:58:33 <Graham> i am Domed out
17:58:39 <Graham> enjoy the heat Kevin
17:58:53 <Graham> and 50
17:59:18 <Graham> assuming ipad is you
17:59:49 <ynpvisitor50> Depression and Aurum in the same day!
17:59:57 <ynpvisitor50> Yes
18:00:02 <Graham> double depression
18:00:30 <Graham> goodnight
18:00:41 <kcmule> nite
18:00:54 <ynpvisitor50> Nite
18:28:04 <ynpvisitor50> Lightning. Hide the cam!
18:30:48 <ynpvisitor117> Thunder Snows?
18:31:13 <kcmule> quite a light show
18:31:42 <ynpvisitor117> Hope the cam tays up when OF gets hit
18:31:49 <ynpvisitor117> stays
18:44:56 <ynpvisitor108> still working, not that I can see much.
18:47:54 <ynpvisitor117> I see smoke
19:49:45 <Kevin L™> Wow. What happened to the view?
19:50:27 <Kevin L™> Knight are losing 6-1 2nd intermission. Hope this doesn't continue into the playoffs.
20:06:45 <kcmule> access denied.
20:07:56 <Kevin L™> :)
20:08:12 <Kevin L™> 94° here today.
20:48:46 <ynpvisitor83> This is about as dark as the working cam ever gets.
20:49:23 <ynpvisitor77> The dome is covered with snow
20:49:51 <ynpvisitor83> From the bottom up? :)
