03:45:53 <ynpvisitor65> Good morning Graham
03:48:09 <GO GOGGLE> someone shining a light
03:48:28 <ynpvisitor65> You will see a lash to the keft of and behind OF, they left a camera that takes a picture every minute
03:48:51 <GO GOGGLE> ah, ok
03:59:24 <ynpvisitor65> on my clock it flashes every xx:33 been going all night, in the light yesterday I saw three instruments?on the boargwalk back there
04:08:05 <ynpvisitor65> The snowkid survived another night in the wilds of Yellowstone :)
04:13:48 <GO GOGGLE> notenough snow for Mara to feed the kid

04:53:01 <GO GOGGLE> dome
04:53:01 <ynpvisitor113> Dome?
04:53:15 <ynpvisitor113> Beat me to it. 😁
04:59:38 <GO GOGGLE> not much snow at OF nut looks like they had a bit at N Entrance
05:08:13 <GO GOGGLE> dome
05:20:29 <ynpvisitor65> DAISY
05:21:39 <ynpvisitor65> sorry, did not mean to shout
05:33:11 <GO GOGGLE> dome
05:34:02 <GO GOGGLE> headed out, someone else is on DOme watch :)
05:49:05 <ynpvisitor23> Dome ie
06:10:36 <ynpvisitor65> N
06:11:25 <ynpvisitor65> NG
06:11:39 <ynpvisitor65> Intermediate
06:16:55 <ynpvisitor99> LS may be ie, not sure.
06:17:40 <ynpvisitor65> LS?
06:31:12 <ynpvisitor90> what is the crew doing today?
07:03:17 <ynpvisitor48> Pole good! It only seems to clean the bottom part of the dome.
07:03:35 <ynpvisitor48> Thanks Much!
07:04:48 <ynpvisitor48> I hope this doesn't mean that CenturyLink isn't coming 'til spring
07:37:20 <Betty> morning all
07:41:25 <GO GOGGLE> yeah we had a NG
07:41:48 <Betty> and you missed it :-(
07:42:02 <GO GOGGLE> oh well, i had a nice walk
07:42:17 <Betty> that´s good :-)
07:42:17 <GO GOGGLE> maybe we will get more although its getting late now
07:43:15 <Betty> hi Kevin
07:43:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
07:44:29 <GO GOGGLE> Electric peak lighting is nice
07:45:28 <GO GOGGLE> didCastle minor again or break the pattern?
07:46:06 <Betty> yeah, so is Gardiner River
07:46:30 <Betty> I thought it looked like a major
07:46:44 <ynpvisitor65> Castle looked major
07:47:02 <GO GOGGLE> so as soon as we see a pattern it changes
07:48:37 <ynpvisitor65> it [u]is[/u] a geyser
07:50:14 <ynpvisitor65> Betty, Kent and lc kept track of dome for you
07:50:57 <Betty> not to forget you :-)
07:50:59 <ynpvisitor65> Daisy
07:51:03 <Betty> Daisy
07:51:09 <GO GOGGLE> thank you ... although that 1h7m interval looks suspicious
07:52:58 <Betty> this looks a lot like little squirt
07:53:16 <Betty> OF
07:57:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Time for some training
07:59:18 <GO GOGGLE> dome
08:01:06 <ynpvisitor65> should see rside soon if the wind does not blow it towards grotto
08:08:54 <ynpvisitor65> looks as if Grand will keep its 6h+ interval
08:11:25 <LindaG> Good morning
08:11:51 <Betty> morning LindaG
08:13:31 <LindaG> Hi betty
08:23:05 <GO GOGGLE> dome
08:25:36 <Betty> NG?
08:28:06 <ynpvisitor65> I do not see NG on the replay
08:28:23 <Betty> thanks
08:32:08 <ynpvisitor65> turban?
08:32:45 <Betty> could be
08:43:04 <Betty> enjoy Grand. bbl
08:43:22 <ynpvisitor65> Bye betty
08:51:18 <ynpvisitor13> long Grand interval
08:51:56 <GO GOGGLE> dome
08:52:33 <ynpvisitor13> how do you see Dome?
08:52:49 <GO GOGGLE> it was steam on static
08:52:56 <GO GOGGLE> on theVEC cam
08:53:34 <ynpvisitor13> how do you know it is erupting and not just steaming?
08:54:02 <GO GOGGLE> it usually doesnt steam much when its not erupting
08:54:20 <GO GOGGLE> if its thick white steam then its erupting
08:54:32 <GO GOGGLE> whispy white and its probably not
08:55:13 <ynpvisitor13> sounds probable and not certain...
08:57:18 <GO GOGGLE> we know dome is active, and its intervals are pretty regular, so its quite easy to know its erupting if you watch it for years
08:57:28 <ynpvisitor13> looks like Turban yet no Grand, will go over 7 hours
09:03:07 <GO GOGGLE> the other easy thing for Dome is theres nothing else that puts up steam there. Turban is often harder to call given all the other steam makers and steam that comes off Grands pool. not saying we cant tell tho, sometimes its a good call
09:06:34 <ynpvisitor13> I thought things seen on static were posted with a VEC static comment
09:06:57 <ynpvisitor13> and now Grand might be in OF window...
09:11:14 <ynpvisitor13> not a good wind direction for OF and the cam
09:13:12 <GO GOGGLE> Dome
09:14:03 <GO GOGGLE> i have never done that 13
09:14:25 <GO GOGGLE> they are still webcam times
09:14:48 <GO GOGGLE> nothing wrong with people posting which cam if they want to
09:14:55 <ynpvisitor48> Fluffy is perverse. We just got the dome cleaned.
09:15:11 <ynpvisitor13> Grand
09:15:29 <ynpvisitor13> hope cam op is watching
09:16:00 <ynpvisitor13> though wind may not favor our seeing spikes today
09:16:07 <ynpvisitor48> Static clock at least 3 minutes fast
09:17:18 <ynpvisitor13> and it's the wind that is perverse, if anything is. OF has no control of it
09:18:32 <GO GOGGLE> i dont use the times off the VEC cam
09:19:01 <GO GOGGLE> VEC cam is fast, streaming cam is slow
09:21:36 <ynpvisitor13> my streaming time is fine today
09:26:01 <GO GOGGLE> of
09:26:47 <ynpvisitor13> person at OF
09:27:29 <ynpvisitor13> I won't miss this when they move the cam
09:28:05 <ynpvisitor48> It's just sad
09:29:51 <ynpvisitor48> New cam has a wiper which I suspect will freeze solid even if the solution is full of alcohol.
09:30:41 <GO GOGGLE> the old wiper didnt freeze up
09:30:51 <GO GOGGLE> back in the day
09:31:09 <ynpvisitor48> It looks like the new one is a sponge of some sort
09:38:15 <GO GOGGLE> dome
09:41:13 <ynpvisitor65> Riverside
09:41:52 <ynpvisitor65> Riverside
09:51:11 <GO GOGGLE> no researchers out today?
09:52:31 <ynpvisitor65> thry were out on old faithful earlier
09:53:12 <GO GOGGLE> ok, hopefully they dont swarm everywhere today
09:53:26 <GO GOGGLE> fee free day tomorrow ... shoild go visit :)
09:54:10 <ynpvisitor65> CC just left the cam on wide and did not try to hide them
09:56:22 <ynpvisitor65> If I remember correctly they just don't want to be seen whin they are within 10 meters of the cone
09:58:01 <ynpvisitor65> 10 meters from the cone is what35 feet?
09:58:58 <ynpvisitor65> 10 meters - feet
10:07:32 <GO GOGGLE> dome
10:28:48 <GO GOGGLE> 10m is 32.8 feet. I usually just multiply by 3 and add 10% to get a good approximation
10:31:38 <LindaG> Looks quiet
10:33:45 <GO GOGGLE> dome
11:03:37 <GO GOGGLE> OF
11:24:23 <GO GOGGLE> dome
11:51:19 <GO GOGGLE> dome
12:17:21 <ynpvisitor30> Sad not to see at least a handful of gazers in the basin :(
12:17:40 <GO GOGGLE> dome
12:18:11 <GO GOGGLE> we have had a few researchers around but no Mara reports
12:19:27 <ynpvisitor30> Dome just showed up
12:22:02 <ynpvisitor30> Lots of orange vests on static
12:41:17 <GO GOGGLE> OF
12:42:00 <GO GOGGLE> rainbow
12:47:56 <GO GOGGLE> dome
12:56:24 <ynpvisitor102> Who’s to blame for grand slowing down?
12:58:05 <GO GOGGLE> Mara
12:58:35 <GO GOGGLE> she gets the blame for everything including the Giant Steamboat dual
13:00:38 <GO GOGGLE> Daisy
13:08:46 <LindaG> Think well see bee before dark?
13:09:10 <GO GOGGLE> no
13:09:33 <LindaG> Bummer
13:09:56 <GO GOGGLE> but its a geyser so you never know
13:10:14 <GO GOGGLE> will Grand go before dark?
13:10:49 <LindaG> 😊 there is always hope
13:12:10 <LindaG> Grand is predicted even later
13:12:38 <GO GOGGLE> yeah but the GT prediction for BH is somewhat optimistic most of the time
13:13:10 <GO GOGGLE> we should get another Dome :)
13:13:19 <GO GOGGLE> and another
13:13:21 <GO GOGGLE> and another
13:14:13 <LindaG> Its definitely a dome day!
13:15:02 <GO GOGGLE> this year ws the first year i was on geyser hill for the initial starting
13:15:03 <LindaG> Its keeping you busy
13:15:20 <GO GOGGLE> but it was after they closed the boardwalk that side
13:15:50 <LindaG> How long does it usually run?
13:16:30 <GO GOGGLE> I think the initial is about 8min and has a lot more water than the othersintervals get longer
13:17:11 <GO GOGGLE> intervals start around 15min and get longer. Series usually lasts 2 days , sometimes longer but the late intervals are an hour or more so harder to catch
13:17:15 <GO GOGGLE> Dome
13:18:04 <GO GOGGLE> if you look on GT you can see how theyhave lengthened today
13:18:45 <GO GOGGLE> a lot are ie times but you can still see how they have lengthened
13:19:12 <LindaG> I will. I know it isn't always doing this so I figured it must have a series. So interesting
13:19:39 <GO GOGGLE> series are about 5-8 days apart
13:20:15 <LindaG> Thx
13:46:01 <GO GOGGLE> dome
14:13:06 <GO GOGGLE> OF
14:14:43 <LindaG> So much for a clean dome
14:15:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Linda messed up the dome.
14:16:08 <LindaG> 😁 I confess!
14:16:53 <ynpvisitor22> personally I think OF doesn't agree with me being on here
14:17:01 <LindaG> And here it comes again
14:17:03 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon all
14:17:20 <LindaG> Hi 999
14:17:21 <GO GOGGLE> morning DG
14:18:24 <GO GOGGLE> dome
14:18:51 <LindaG> Ah so it wasn't me. 😉
14:20:19 <ynpvisitor999®> nice surging
14:20:23 <LindaG> We need a bee
14:22:45 <Kevin L™🌵> I got some mountain sheep on my train ride this morning. Not a Bee but still fun.
14:24:17 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, oh love mountain sheep
14:26:18 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, Male or female?
14:27:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Both. There was a big Ram on the hill guarding the herd. About 10 total.
14:29:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Only had iPad for pics so didn't get a very good shot. They blend in very well. I sent a pic via email.
14:31:04 <LindaG> Yeah you can see the big guy on top!
14:32:05 <Kevin L™🌵> It was pretty fun. I live just around the corner from that hill about a mile away.
14:36:14 <LindaG> That is fun. The most you'd see in Jersey is a deer. Boring
14:36:47 <GO GOGGLE> are there bears in western NJ?
14:37:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Lake Mead is just over the hill so there are a lot of animals up there.
14:37:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand!
14:38:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice Start.
14:38:09 <LindaG> Yes, black bear. They are beginning to move into more suburbs. No where to go really. They have bear hunts.
14:38:20 <GO GOGGLE> Grand before the GT window opened
14:38:29 <GO GOGGLE> by 14m
14:38:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Doggie in the meadow.
14:39:01 <LindaG> So grand did make it before dark
14:40:02 <GO GOGGLE> yep ... but still hard for BH to go
14:41:07 <LindaG> At least we got to see one of them
14:41:41 <GO GOGGLE> bee still has a chance to prove me wrong
14:42:16 <ynpvisitor13> longest in a while and now shortest...
14:42:35 <ynpvisitor13> maybe it will have a 2nd burst
14:43:07 <ynpvisitor13> VEC static very nice right now
14:43:37 <ynpvisitor13> Kevin, you live close to Lake Mead?
14:43:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes.
14:45:02 <ynpvisitor13> pause please
14:46:08 <LindaG> So is the steam to the right turban?
14:46:36 <Kevin L™🌵> It may be Grotto
14:46:38 <GO GOGGLE> the drifting steam is probably Grotto
14:46:44 <GO GOGGLE> Turban is buried in the Grand steam
14:47:01 <LindaG> Ok thx
14:47:29 <ynpvisitor13> LindaG, have you seen Grand up close?
14:47:41 <LindaG> No I havent
14:47:49 <ynpvisitor13> I hope you get to some day
14:48:04 <ynpvisitor13> Turban is right next to Grand, it overflows into Grand's pool
14:48:15 <LindaG> Me too! Next trip to yelliwstone
14:48:57 <ynpvisitor13> I did not think we would get Grand before dark. That was nice
14:49:26 <LindaG> For sure
14:49:27 <Kevin L™🌵> At least one Geyser is nice to us.
14:49:53 <ynpvisitor13> BH can't help that MST happened
14:49:54 <GO GOGGLE> dome
14:50:02 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum?
14:50:21 <ynpvisitor13> I don't see Aurum
14:50:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like it
14:50:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand looked like -1Q
14:50:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep. Shows on VEC static.
14:51:03 <ynpvisitor13> steamy
14:51:11 <GO GOGGLE> yep
14:51:17 <ynpvisitor13> how nice it shows on static again
14:51:24 <GO GOGGLE> wind is blowing steam to us so hard to see water
14:51:35 <ynpvisitor13> good eye DG
14:52:41 <LindaG> Dome
14:52:56 <ynpvisitor13> yep, it started a bit ago
14:53:22 <LindaG> That's a great view
14:55:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion's trying
14:57:35 <ynpvisitor999®> well, looks like it's delayed itself
14:57:46 <LindaG> Come on bee!
14:58:46 <ynpvisitor999®> Plate?
14:59:09 <LindaG> Was wondering what that is
14:59:58 <GO GOGGLE> ghg5
15:00:13 <GO GOGGLE> i think
15:00:49 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, I think it's a bit on the shorter side for Plate. Maybe it was Slot then
15:00:49 <Kevin L™🌵> It's Knight time.
15:00:51 <LindaG> Looked at picture I think maybe plume, close to BW
15:00:52 <GO GOGGLE> but i just came back to conputer from laundry
15:01:04 <GO GOGGLE> good luck Kevin ... this is a harder season for you
15:01:28 <Kevin L™🌵> It is still lots of fun.
15:01:42 <GO GOGGLE> hockey always is
15:04:19 <LindaG> GHG?
15:04:36 <LindaG> Oops it
15:04:48 <LindaG> Gone
15:04:50 <GO GOGGLE> hatd to tell with this wind direction
15:05:10 <GO GOGGLE> and theres a lot of steam from most features too
15:05:28 <LindaG> Lion is purring
15:05:36 <GO GOGGLE> looks like the spring in front of Sponge
15:05:53 <GO GOGGLE> when will you go to the park next Linda?
15:06:23 <ynpvisitor75> It would be easier to id if everything blew the same direction.
15:06:45 <LindaG> I have No idea. I live in Jersey so it's quite a trip.
15:07:00 <GO GOGGLE> i am in VA
15:07:17 <LindaG> So we're on the east coast
15:07:47 <GO GOGGLE> i will be in UGB in 10 weeks +1 day bnut who's counting :)
15:08:04 <LindaG> I'm going to glacier in June and then I'd like to return to YNP
15:08:18 <ynpvisitor5> haha- glad you have a countdown Graham
15:08:50 <ynpvisitor5> I mean GO GOGGLE
15:09:04 <LindaG> I had reservations for June at YNP but I had to cancel and only go the glacier
15:09:29 <GO GOGGLE> Glacier is a wonderful park. The road sometimes doesnt open till July, right?
15:10:09 <GO GOGGLE> do you drive out?
15:10:31 <LindaG> That is possible, last june it opened on 24th. I leave July 1st so im hoping not a lot of snow this winter
15:10:39 <GO GOGGLE> Newark has non stop flight to Bozeman
15:11:01 <GO GOGGLE> hope its open for you
15:11:01 <LindaG> No I'm flying into kalispell
15:11:23 <GO GOGGLE> yeah, for Glacier. but you might have a non stop to Bozeman for Yellowstone
15:11:47 <GO GOGGLE> Kalispell is a nice quiet airport
15:12:25 <LindaG> I was going to fly into Bozeman, visit Lamar and drive to glacier. But it was too much. So going straight to glacier
15:13:10 <GO GOGGLE> agree, its a ling trip between the two parks. not bad if going for 2 weeks tho
15:13:11 <LindaG> The other bucket list is yosemite
15:13:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Grove
15:13:30 <ynpvisitor999®> no, Sponge
15:13:53 <LindaG> I think Kevin broke lion
15:13:59 <GO GOGGLE> i am not calling anything up there :)
15:14:13 <GO GOGGLE> could be the new thing too, 17
15:15:14 <GO GOGGLE> Yosemite is a fantastic park. good to go late may when theres lots of water and Mariposa Grove is open, or earlier if you dont mind missing the trees
15:15:20 <GO GOGGLE> Mem Day weeekend is very busy
15:15:24 <LindaG> I can only get away 10 days at a time. I did sedona both canyons and bryce in November and it was too much
15:16:02 <GO GOGGLE> you are checking them off :)
15:16:13 <LindaG> Yes i need to research yosemite, ill keep that in mind
15:16:40 <GO GOGGLE> reservations book up a year in advance, they open them up day by day
15:16:45 <LindaG> Then back to yellowstone
15:16:46 <Kevin L™🌵> The past few years fires have been an issue at Yosemite.
15:16:52 <GO GOGGLE> but you can book and cancel, just like Yellowstone
15:17:08 <GO GOGGLE> May should be good tho Kevin
15:17:17 <LindaG> Yeah forgwt fall for traveling out west, i switched to spring
15:17:20 <GO GOGGLE> if you go in fall theres no water in the falls
15:17:44 <GO GOGGLE> I would like to do a winter trip to Yosemite
15:18:04 <LindaG> I didnt like september in yellowstone, too much smoke, ash on my car!
15:18:41 <LindaG> I'd like to do a winter trip to YNP
15:19:17 <ynpvisitor75> I've never been in the winter. I love September
15:20:06 <GO GOGGLE> some years you get smoke, others you dont.
15:20:14 <LindaG> September was nice when the smoke subsided
15:20:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I love September in Yellowstone.
15:20:36 <GO GOGGLE> Winter is very different but you have to be ready for the cold and walking on snow/ice
15:21:12 <GO GOGGLE> dep
15:21:17 <LindaG> Not sure I could take that kind of cold, but I'd love to see it
15:22:26 <LindaG> I really liked beginning of July, lots of flowers
15:22:56 <Betty> BH looks ready
15:24:01 <GO GOGGLE> i still have not been there when its been cold, -15F is the colders
15:24:06 <GO GOGGLE> dome
15:24:50 <GO GOGGLE> but most days it warms to 20 or higher...sometimes to freezing
15:24:51 <LindaG> That's nippy 😊
15:25:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Anything under 70° is nippy.
15:25:41 <LindaG> Well it can be that cold here. I guess the lowest jersey has had is -10
15:25:54 <GO GOGGLE> expedition weight thermal underwear, facemask, 1200 thinsulate boots
15:26:27 <GO GOGGLE> gearing up was expensive the first time
15:26:49 <LindaG> Sounds it
15:29:07 <Betty> Daisy
15:29:10 <LindaG> The snow dwarf is hanging in there, can't see anything else at night but you can see that
15:31:07 <LindaG> I guess that's sprinkler to the left of the tree
15:31:20 <GO GOGGLE> yes
15:35:02 <LindaG> Marmot cave?
15:35:26 <GO GOGGLE> probably
15:42:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like another Knightime BH.
15:43:15 <GO GOGGLE> it needs to change its clock
15:43:17 <LindaG> Sadly so
15:45:01 <ynpvisitor75> At least the trace of snow will reflect the little bit of moonlight.
15:45:16 <Kent> GO, you planning a winter trip this year?
15:45:34 <GO GOGGLE> arrive in 71 days
15:45:56 <GO GOGGLE> MLK week
15:46:04 <GO GOGGLE> u?
15:46:08 <Kent> :thumbsup: :)
15:46:32 <GO GOGGLE> will be my 13th winter .. hope thats not a bad omen
15:46:53 <LindaG> Wow 13
15:46:55 <Kent> No. I could not get a cabin and I am not a fan of the lodge. I may keep looking.
15:47:32 <GO GOGGLE> i saw they were busy at MLK time.
15:47:45 <GO GOGGLE> they usually have early Jan vacancies
15:48:10 <Kent> I may go north for Chico, wolves and peeps. Chico below zero is one of my very favorite things.
15:48:20 <GO GOGGLE> Lodge is expensive
15:48:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice Bee burp
15:48:48 <GO GOGGLE> i will go to Lamar the day before coming into OF
15:49:02 <LindaG> Ah lamar
15:49:39 <GO GOGGLE> might be GHG5
15:50:03 <GO GOGGLE> wolves are easier to see in the snow
15:51:07 <Kent> I like both the big dogs and coyotes.
15:51:37 <GO GOGGLE> foxes are nice too
15:51:44 <LindaG> Ive yet to see a wolf there😒
15:52:24 <Kent> We have had a wuff on this cam. Very cool.
15:52:26 <GO GOGGLE> i have only seen them far away
15:52:40 <GO GOGGLE> Elk Park near Norris had rhtme in Sept
15:52:45 <Betty> OF
15:52:56 <LindaG> Woof on cam would be very cool
15:53:40 <GO GOGGLE> i think we have had two wolf sightings, one lone wolf on Geyser Hill and then a whole pack running in the meadow beyond split cone, the Wapites
15:53:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Goal!
15:54:00 <GO GOGGLE> should be on Youtube somewhere
15:54:14 <GO GOGGLE> along with the only Moose on cam
15:54:15 <LindaG> Oh neat I'll have to look for it
15:54:18 <Kevin L™🌵> I know the pack is somewhere.
15:55:00 <Betty>
15:55:07 <GO GOGGLE> riverside
15:55:08 <Kevin L™🌵> No need to search:
15:55:12 <Betty> Riverside ie
15:55:27 <LindaG> Everybody except for bee
15:55:42 <Kent> There were lots of coyotes in the UGB this fall. I am surprised we have not had them on the cam now that there are fewer people about.
15:55:46 <ynpvisitor75> I'm off to see a play - that should trigger bee
15:55:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Goal!
15:56:03 <GO GOGGLE> another one?
15:56:05 <Kent> Thank you
15:56:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep
15:56:35 <GO GOGGLE> i bet the 4pm coyote will be back when the park repoens
15:56:53 <Kent> Graham are opera tickets expensive?
15:57:11 <GO GOGGLE> they vary wildly and depends how close you want to sit
15:57:28 <LindaG> I used to watch that coyote when it was on
15:57:34 <GO GOGGLE> small compamies can be under $60
15:58:00 <GO GOGGLE> fir bigger ones I usually pay 100-150 as i dont like being really high up
15:58:18 <GO GOGGLE> its expensive as they have singers, orchestra, chorus usually, and sets
15:58:35 <GO GOGGLE> the Met in NY has cheap seats under 40
15:58:41 <GO GOGGLE> but they are way way up
15:59:02 <GO GOGGLE> dome
15:59:04 <Betty> Dome ie
15:59:45 <Kent> I will go look at our local opera company
15:59:50 <GO GOGGLE> so opera is cheaper than going to professional sports or the big broadway shows
16:00:11 <LindaG> Gotta eat dinner, hold bee for me. Bye
16:00:33 <GO GOGGLE> small companies often have less expensive seats. sometimes cheaper midweek too
16:01:03 <GO GOGGLE> i have 3 operas this next week, prices $40 to 135.
16:01:12 <GO GOGGLE> no, make that 4 operas
16:01:28 <GO GOGGLE> Baltimore, DC, Richmond, DC
16:01:39 <Kent> "Candide" tonight. $20 to $74. Not bad.
16:01:58 <GO GOGGLE> one is timely, the SIlent Night opera about the WWI christmas truce on the front line
16:01:59 <Kent> I have never seen a live opera
16:02:17 <GO GOGGLE> Candide is half opera, half broadway
16:03:07 <Kent> Yep, tomorrow is the day 11/11/11 + 100 I have my poppy ready.
16:03:17 <GO GOGGLE> another option is to go to Met in HD broadcasts on Saturday, less expensive and good view to see if you like it
16:03:37 <GO GOGGLE> they broadcast to theaters
16:04:05 <GO GOGGLE> they do some evening rebroadcasts too
16:05:07 <Kent> I think we get the HD broadcasts here. Something to look into
16:06:42 <GO GOGGLE> you get the high quality Met performance for about $20
16:06:56 <GO GOGGLE> which opera company is doing Candide?
16:07:20 <Kent> Local, Utah Opera.
16:07:48 <GO GOGGLE> better hurry, it closes tonight
16:08:53 <Kent> I'm going to stay home and watch "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." I am a true philistine :(
16:09:38 <GO GOGGLE> haha. they have Mozart Magic Flute and Bellini Norma later in the season
16:10:04 <GO GOGGLE> goodnight
16:10:08 <Kent> I saw the Mozart.
16:10:11 <Kent> Night
16:25:35 <Betty> Lion ie
18:11:47 <Kevin L™🌵> 😥
18:14:26 <LindaG> Hmmm no bee yet
18:43:20 <Kevin L™🌵> A bad Knight for sure
18:47:38 <Kevin L™🌵> At least we have more moon coming up.
18:48:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Supposed to be a comet visible to the naked eye around Christmas.
