05:33:14 <Dave from B™> Morning Rice
05:39:47 <Rice> Morning Dave
05:40:21 <Rice> Anything fun going on?
05:42:47 <Dave from B™> Not today. I think tomorrow will be seismo shaking day at Norris
05:44:22 <Rice> You headed down?
05:45:05 <Dave from B™> No, I'm trying to avoid winter as long as possible.
05:45:49 <Rice> We are getting our new electric pallet jack today, excitement!
05:48:43 <Dave from B™> They can be real tricky for newbies to drive but I love ours
05:51:44 <Dave from B™> What brand did you buy?
05:56:39 <Rice> We got a Yale, training is supose to be included, but corporate leased it, so I bet they were cheap
05:58:00 <Dave from B™> Once you learn how to drive them they are great but they are real dangerous for beginners. Most of my freezer door damage comes from newbies using the electric jack.
05:59:25 <Rice> We are mixing Palm Fat, and it is all coming in on shipping containers, in 1 ton bags. Needed a way to load and unload trucks, witout tieing up my main forklift.
06:01:01 <Rice> Do you know when they are going to vut the new camera in
06:01:03 <Rice> ?
06:01:43 <Dave from B™> I don't but I wouldn't be surprised if it is this week since the park closes on Monday at 8 am
06:01:44 <ynpvisitor43> New cam after Nov 5th closing
06:01:57 <Dave from B™> Rice, there ya go
06:02:38 <Rice> thank you 43
06:02:57 <Rice> So when it breaks down, no one will be there to fix it.
06:04:03 <Dave from B™> There is still admin travel when park is closed but at some point it is snowmobile only
06:06:14 <Bill> morning
06:06:32 <Dave from B™> Morning Bill
06:17:00 <ynpvisitor35> Daisy
06:17:11 <ynpvisitor35> and Grand
06:18:59 <Dave from B™> Nice steam plumes
06:25:02 <ynpvisitor114> 8min
06:31:25 <Dave from B™> Good morning Mike J and fishynp
06:33:14 <Dave from B™> Mike J, seems like disney tries to influence elections. What's your take on the disney vs Anaheim battle?
06:36:11 <ynpvisitor3> of
06:51:22 <Dave from B™> So, at this time of year, every car thru the Norris lot registers on seismo?
06:54:48 <Mike J> Dave, I hadn't heard anything about the Disney influence thing. In fact, based on the problems they are having with Anaheim city council, I figured they were really bad at it.
06:55:58 <Dave from B™> They spent $1,000,000 on the last city election I heard unless it is "fake news"
06:56:38 <Mike J> I hadn't heard it, but it wouldn't surprise me. They had a bunch of sweetheart deals set for expansion, and took for granted that the council was with them.
06:57:06 <Mike J> Change in the council, they thought they were being bullied, and tons of plans regarding expansion and infrastructure go down the drain.
06:58:11 <Mike J> Gotta be tough for Anaheim. Disney is their life blood. But if they get bullied, they wind up with a far smaller piece of the pie than deserved.
07:01:36 <ynpvisitor101> ndy
07:02:24 <ynpvisitor101> +I
07:02:50 <Mike J> This should be a pretty one
07:07:02 <Kevin L™ 😎> Timing is everything
07:11:11 <Kevin L™ 😎> And it's off!
07:11:56 <ynpvisitor101> Wow
07:13:11 <ynpvisitor76> Amazing colors right now
07:17:07 <ynpvisitor5> Some Beehive is better than no Beehive.
07:17:18 <Kevin L™ 😎> Nice way to start a morning.
07:18:28 <ynpvisitor5> Static continues to prove itself useful!
07:18:47 <Kevin L™ 😎> :)
07:24:14 <BSK> Good morning and sweet light!
07:24:36 <BSK> But I came on 25 minutes too late, darn it!
07:26:16 <Dave from B™> Bad time for 7 pallets of product to show up:(
07:26:37 <Dave from B™> Mike, I know they are anxiously awaiting next week's anaheim election results.
07:27:12 <Mike J> Dave, I can imagine. It hasn't been friendly the last couple of years.
07:27:48 <Dave from B™> It is tough relationship between Anaheim and Disney. There is a rumor circulating that they may build a hotel in Garden Grove and bus people to the parks....probably just grandstanding
07:29:39 <Mike J> They do that well. A number of years ago they had a full proposal for a park in Long Beach. And that was one of the most influential reasons for Anaheim to agree to the expansions Disney wanted that led to the second park - Disney California Adventure.
07:36:29 <Dave from B™> Dunraven Pass is now open
07:36:40 <Dave from B™> I beleive that leaves Craig and Sylvan closed still
07:37:58 <Dave from B™> As a longtime Disney supporter I can see both sides to the story. Hopefully, cooler heads prevail.
07:38:52 <Mike J> Agreed Dave. They had some great plans that got scrapped when they got cocky - when they took the council (am I spelling that word right?) for granted.
07:41:08 <Dave from B™> A MASSIVE amount of people will be visiting when Star Wars Land opens. It is going to really inundate the parks. A 3rd park is probably necessary at some point.
07:52:13 <Kevin L™ 😎> When does that open?
07:54:26 <Dave from B™> Next summer
07:55:02 <Kevin L™ 😎> Good. I just found out I was going there around Christmas. Not too excited.
07:55:30 <Dave from B™> I've always wanted to go around Christmas time to see it decoarated
07:56:29 <Kevin L™ 😎> The best time is the Thursday after Thanksgiving. It is on holiday hours and decorated but the crowds are way down.
08:05:11 <Kevin L™ 😎> What is that smell?
08:05:28 <Jimbo Chlorine> It's acrid
08:06:29 <Mike J> Regarding Disney and Christmas. Best times are the first two weeks in December. All the Christmas stuff is up. But the crowds have not showed up yet.
08:07:01 <Kevin L™ 😎> And they stay open late too.
08:13:08 <Dave from B™> When I finally fully retire, I will go then
08:13:14 <Kevin L™ 😎> Poof
08:20:08 <Kevin L™ 😎> When we were on 12 month school we went on the Thursday after Thanksgiving. The longest wait I had was 20m and that was believe it or not the Storybook Land boat ride!
08:29:40 <Betty> morning guys
08:29:53 <Kevin L™ 😎> You missed it Betty
08:30:57 <Betty> bah
08:34:24 <Betty> LC ie
08:41:55 <Kevin L™ 😎> Aurum?
08:42:07 <Kevin L™ 😎> Yep
08:42:22 <Betty> you saw water`?
08:42:46 <Kevin L™ 😎> Yes
08:48:21 <Dave from B™> Sylvan Pass is now open....snow tires only
08:48:45 <Betty> who has snow tires?
08:48:59 <Dave from B™> not me
08:49:08 <Kevin L™ 😎> I would think they would melt.
08:49:20 <Mike J> Snow tires? What are these snow tires you speak of.
08:49:34 <Betty> :-)
08:49:44 <Betty> hi Mike and Dave
08:50:03 <Kevin L™ 😎> If tin whistles are made of tin, what do they make snow tires out of?
08:50:43 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
08:51:16 <ynpvisitor33> not studs anymore, thankfully
08:54:18 <Betty> Daisy
09:00:16 <Barrett> Been since 2016 since I went to yellowstone heh. Just noticed that Sawmill complex seems dormant since 2017. What's up there
09:00:38 <Dave from B™> Barrett, why no trip in the last 2 years?
09:00:59 <Kevin L™ 😎> Like you say, nothing!
09:01:21 <Barrett> I really should have. But I mean Sawmill went dormant so Penta and Churn did as well?
09:01:29 <Kevin L™ 😎> We traded it for Ear Spring
09:01:30 <Betty> yup
09:01:53 <Barrett> ummm, what's ear spring doing?
09:02:23 <Kevin L™ 😎> Had a 20' eruption a few weeks back.
09:02:57 <Betty> coughed out some coins
09:03:33 <Barrett> I recall getting so mad at Sawmill geyser wishing it would just go dormant so I could see Penta. Took me 6+ days of waiting, not all at the same time, just like 4 or 6 hours per visit I would see Penta had a chance and would wait on it.
09:03:44 <Kevin L™ 😎> Here is the link:
09:04:25 <Betty> you could see only Spasmodic there
09:04:39 <Betty> Tardy is dormant too
09:04:52 <Kevin L™ 😎> Berchtesgaden and Eagles Nest are awesome right now:
09:04:55 <Barrett> I would assume that means Old Tardy is too
09:05:02 <Betty> Old Tardy works from time to time
09:05:09 <Kevin L™ 😎> Uncertain is also dormant.
09:05:30 <Betty> I saw OT in September
09:05:41 <Betty> LC ie
09:07:45 <Betty> ear spring?
09:07:48 <Barrett> Wonder if Steamboats change is going to last for years
09:07:53 <Betty> no, GHG 5
09:10:59 <Barrett> Upper Geyser sounds a little more boring than normal
09:11:27 <Kevin L™ 😎> I would not expect to see Steamboat continue.
09:12:16 <Kevin L™ 😎> Upper Basin has not been bad. Both F&M and Giant active along with the extra action on Geyser Hill
09:12:31 <Dave from B™> F&M, Giant are not boring
09:15:51 <Barrett> O.o Giant has been erupting that much?
09:16:57 <Kevin L™ 😎> Yes
09:17:11 <Barrett> I looked
09:17:28 <Barrett> That's 20 times this year
09:17:38 <ynpvisitor53> So is Dave planning a visit to SB on Halloween?
09:17:57 <ynpvisitor53> He will be the one with all the holes.
09:17:57 <Kevin L™ 😎> If you go to the youtube replays you can usually see it over the trees.
09:18:19 <Barrett> yeah, I know Steamboat also became really frequent this year
09:25:13 <Dave from B™> 53, I hung up my SB shoes for the year
09:33:27 <ynpvisitor53> Is this what Yellowstone will look like?
09:35:34 <Betty> LC
09:37:28 <Betty> OF
09:38:16 <Betty> nice on static
09:46:45 <Betty> white bugs
09:48:53 <Betty> btw, did DST already end? we changed this weekend
09:50:23 <Jimbo Chlorine> No, we're still on it. Ends this Sunday morning in the U.S. (where applicable)
09:50:24 <Kevin L™ 😎> Not here
09:51:46 <Betty> Riverside
10:06:13 <Betty> LC ie
10:27:11 <ynpvisitor22> A bunch of really nice closed intervals on Aurum. :)
10:27:50 <GO AURUM> Sorry Graham I couldn't resist.
10:28:25 <Dave from B™> You tricked me, Kent
10:28:26 <Betty> hi Kent
10:28:44 <Dave from B™> I was going to tease him for abandoning the Big 4
10:28:49 <ynpvisitor...> Hey Betty
10:29:09 <ynpvisitor...> I change quickly to avoid too much confusion.
10:35:19 <Betty> LC ie
10:44:30 <Barrett> how much snow is up in norris
10:44:51 <Barrett> also if i wanted to get there before yellowstone closes would i need to do anything special with my car
10:47:45 <ynpvisitor30> it depends on the condition or your car
10:48:24 <ynpvisitor30> to be prepared for the worst, snow tires and emergency supplies would be need idk if they require chains at some point
10:49:54 <ynpvisitor30> I think they tend to close the road based on what an average passenger vehicle could handle or not so in theory you don't have to have anything special for your car
10:50:15 <ynpvisitor30> other than that which provides peace of mind in winter driving conditions in mountainous terrain
10:51:19 <Dave from B™> If you're desiring to see Steamboat, tomorrow is most likely the day
10:52:05 <Dave from B™> No guarantees as I've been wrong MANY times this year on SB
10:53:23 <Barrett> Yeah, No guarentees it will be during daylight hours either
10:54:06 <Barrett> Too bad Lioness/Big Cub aren't active
10:54:40 <Dave from B™> There has been a few changes with Ear Spring Event...North Goggle has been active
10:56:35 <Barrett> anything else?
10:57:53 <Betty> Morning is active too
10:59:49 <Dave from B™> Barrett, you picked a bad year to not visit. This is the most active year for big geysers ever
11:00:40 <Barrett> I meant from the Ear Spring Event. obviously Giant and SB and is F&M more frequent too? Also I've seen morning
11:00:42 <Betty> hi Graham
11:00:46 <GO F&M> ANother update required? 25 24 20 13+ for F&M, Steamboat, Giant, and Morning
11:01:20 <GO F&M> totals for the year
11:02:13 <Barrett> SB I pray lasts into next year, Giant too. heh. I'll try to get up there tomorrow. Might wait a day or two if SB erupts say today
11:02:47 <Barrett> There's only one Large Geyser that hasn't gone off then this year?
11:03:09 <Jimbo Chlorine> Two if you count Excelsior.
11:03:12 <Betty> No Giantess or Splendid
11:03:49 <Barrett> Giantess for Haloween!
11:04:03 <Betty> I´ll buy that
11:04:36 <Betty> see, it starts to put out more steam :-)
11:04:39 <GO F&M> Kent - pretty sure I wont use GP AURUM as my nick :)
11:04:47 <GO F&M> or GO AURUM
11:04:56 <Betty> hehe
11:05:05 <Barrett> Make your nick GO TERRA COTTA
11:05:20 <GO F&M> I didnt ven see it when it was doing the 2 to 3h intervals
11:05:37 <Betty> mine would be GO LC
11:06:17 <Betty> btw - LC ie :-)
11:06:31 <Barrett> Such a bad year for me not to make frequent visits:/ SB, Giant, F&M are all on my wishlist to see
11:07:23 <Betty> at least I have 1 1/2 of your list :-)
11:07:52 <Barrett> I've seen East SentineL :P
11:08:01 <Betty> cool
11:10:52 <Betty> OF in there
11:11:43 <Betty> bah
11:28:37 <ynpvisitor114> Daisy

11:51:11 <Kevin L™ 😎> Looks like it
11:51:19 <Betty> yep#
11:51:48 <Betty> nice burst
12:03:20 <Betty> LC ie
12:22:34 <Betty> GHG 5
12:22:39 <Jimbo Chlorine> I see that
12:39:44 <Kevin L™ 😎> At least it didn't mess up Grand
12:42:17 <Dave from B™> wow...last 2 Grand intervals are REALLY short.....5:20 and 5:27
12:43:40 <Dave from B™> That's 2 ofthe 3 shortest of the last 100
12:44:38 <Dave from B™> And, now we are in the midst of a longer interval
12:44:38 <Kevin L™ 😎> This one is making up for it
12:49:53 <GO F&M> the 5 Grand day was the 24th. its struggling to get back there
12:52:24 <ynpvisitor30> Grand
12:52:57 <ynpvisitor30> over 6.5 hours! who has time to wait for that? ;)
12:54:17 <Dave from B™> Man...better call the is really slowing down
12:56:10 <Jimbo Chlorine> Awh, we could use some wind!
12:57:16 <Kevin L™ 😎> Almost election day. There should be hot air circulating out there.
12:57:56 <Jimbo Chlorine> That may explain what we're seeing. Pols don't know which way the wind is blowing.
12:59:11 <Dave from B™> Hot air is blowing into Bozeman on Saturday; 4th time in Mt this year
12:59:30 <ynpvisitor30> I was obviously joking but I just looked at GT and this IS a very long interval!
13:00:07 <Dave from B™> 30, yes it is compared to the last 100
13:00:32 <Dave from B™> and, we just had 2 really short intervals
13:00:33 <ynpvisitor30> amazing really
13:02:35 <Dave from B™> Longest interval since Oct 19
13:03:31 <Dave from B™> There are only 3 intervals longer in the last 100...longest is 7hr 4min
13:04:04 <Jimbo Chlorine> No deuce
13:06:36 <Betty> LC ie
13:07:17 <Dave from B™> 5:18 is the shortest Grand interval in the last 1000. We had a 5:20 earlier today
13:08:36 <ynpvisitor114> can we look at castle for a min
13:09:13 <ynpvisitor114> thanks
13:34:40 <Betty> LC ie
13:39:21 <Dave from B™> Time to head home. Have a great evening everyone!

14:50:25 <ynpvisitor74> kevin can you pm me
15:50:01 <GO F&M> of
15:55:23 <Kevin L™ 😎> Lion 1754 ini
16:08:49 <GO F&M> is your nick GT verified Kevin?
16:10:07 <Kevin L™ 🏒> I don't think so
16:15:35 <GO F&M> another ear spring puff
16:15:54 <ynpvisitor40> And there's GHG-5
16:23:28 <GO F&M> looked like the steam was in front of the trees though
16:43:47 <Kevin L™ 🏒> Goal!
16:45:22 <ynpvisitor62> Daisy
17:13:53 <ynpvisitor23> lion ie
17:28:41 <ynpvisitor73> Not a one Steamboat note
19:50:03 <ynpvisitor38> Dave is going to miss a Halloween SB.
19:50:26 <ynpvisitor38> Lucky for those that will be there waiting for the Great Pumpkin.
19:51:01 <Kevin L™ 😥> Isn't SB the Great Pumpkin
19:51:57 <ynpvisitor38> Only if Dave is Charley Brown.
19:52:47 <ynpvisitor38> I saw a sign that made me laugh today.
19:53:26 <ynpvisitor38> "You could own this Hometown Sears Store".
19:53:37 <ynpvisitor38> Who would want to?
19:55:33 <ynpvisitor38> I guess owning a independent Sears store would be better then buying nascar?
20:00:47 <Kevin L™ 😥> Cheaper too
20:05:07 <ynpvisitor38> Well, enjoy the dark.
20:05:50 <Kevin L™ 😥> About to sleep myself
20:28:06 <ynpvisitor6> I wonder if we will be able to find the moon with the new cam?
20:48:24 <Kevin L™ 😥> I bet we could.
