04:20:32 <LindaG> Lol that makes more sense
04:21:02 <ynpvisitor58> Linda do you post on GT
04:21:20 <LindaG> Yes occassionally
04:21:56 <LindaG> Why?
04:22:17 <ynpvisitor58> I was wondering, I never see you post when you are driving the cam, I think
04:23:21 <LindaG> That's true I usually comment in chat. Should I. So times it's hard for me to do all, t
04:24:47 <LindaG> If I sense there is no one to do it, I will enter it
04:25:25 <ynpvisitor58> Yes, sometimes it gets busy, You can put the GT app on your smartphone and post from there thst is what I do
04:25:49 <ynpvisitor58> thst=that*
04:26:54 <ynpvisitor58> I was just curious ;)
04:27:30 <LindaG> A lot of times by the time I get to it, it's been done. No problem, dont know what everyone does.
04:27:53 <LindaG> But indo have the power!
04:28:12 <LindaG> * I do
04:28:26 <ynpvisitor58> Yes no problem, Power is great!
04:29:43 <LindaG> So when is bee going off?😉
04:30:26 <ynpvisitor58> Soon after daylight I hope
04:31:22 <ynpvisitor58> it has been 26hours and 7min
04:33:54 <LindaG> Yea I watched to 11pm glad I didn't wait longer.
04:49:00 <ynpvisitor58> possible indy but cant focus too dark
04:55:05 <Dave from B™> Good morning
04:56:25 <Rice> Nice,
04:56:32 <Rice> Bee hive for us early risers
04:56:46 <ynpvisitor75> Thanks !!!
04:57:10 <LindaG> Thx for texr
04:57:32 <LindaG> Dang I missed it
04:57:35 <Mike J> the view on the web cam doesn't look much different than the bleary view out of my eyeballs right now
04:57:41 <ynpvisitor58> hHi Dave and Rice, I hope I'm correct on indy
04:57:49 <ynpvisitor75> :)
04:58:25 <LindaG> Oh so it hasn't gone yet.yay
05:00:56 <ynpvisitor58> Dave, this one is for you :)
05:01:22 <ynpvisitor58> BEE 0700
05:01:22 <LindaG> Nice
05:03:06 <Dave from B™> Thanks Joe!
05:03:17 <ynpvisitor58> :)
05:05:41 <ynpvisitor58> Nice way to start a shift on the camera :)
05:06:09 <Kent> Dave, $ King Crab legs? $23 @ my Costco. curious $50 my fish restaurant (1lb)
05:07:46 <Dave from B™> To cover all restaurant costs including staffing, 2.5-3 times plate cost is the norm.
05:08:15 <Dave from B™> You may not be comparing apples to apples either. There are actually 8 sizes of king crab
05:08:16 <Kent> Not complaining since I don't buy, just curious
05:08:43 <ynpvisitor58> Riverside
05:09:02 <Dave from B™> We are selling between $22 and $26/lb depending on size
05:09:22 <Kent> Thanks.
05:09:40 <Dave from B™> yw
05:09:45 <Rice> Damn boss called during Beehive, I missed it!
05:09:52 <Corless> morning
05:10:55 <ynpvisitor58> Other than Dave, bosses are a PITA :)
05:11:24 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
05:11:27 <Mike J> Especially ones who do not appreciate that geysers trump everything else
05:12:15 <ynpvisitor58> Mike J you playing any where this winter ?
05:13:13 <Mike J> You mean my very part-time musicianship? Just sitting in once a month with a guy I used to work with 30+ years ago.
05:14:32 <ynpvisitor58> Ah, thanks I was wondering if your band was still together?
05:15:17 <Mike J> Nah. We just pull together reunions every once in a while. There's another band I play with sometimes also. But we're all getting so old it's hard to stay up late
05:15:32 <ynpvisitor58> :)
05:23:31 <Corless> when is Giant's next window?
05:27:18 <Rice> Giant= sometime between now and Christmas.
05:28:18 <Corless> :thumbsup:
05:28:24 <ynpvisitor58> I don't know, maybe Dave can tell ue, he has sat in Giant prison enough to be up on that
05:29:14 <ynpvisitor58> ue=us*
05:34:21 <Dave from B™> For some reason, I like Giant Hot Periods
05:44:49 <Corless> I'd like to catch one. We popped up from Jackson and visited with some gazers in the box, but couldn't hang out very long before needing to get back on the road.
05:58:27 <Rice> Steam in the right place down basin.
06:00:55 <ynpvisitor58> That steam started 0752 could be Giant but might be grotto
06:01:20 <Rice> My guess would be Grotto also, but one can dream
06:01:31 <ynpvisitor58> :)
06:02:54 <ynpvisitor108> Bet it is a strong Giant Hot Period - keep watching for a water column at 9 to 13 minutes in....
06:03:15 <Corless>
06:05:10 <ynpvisitor58> Daisy
06:06:46 <ynpvisitor58> Hi Bill headed to SB
06:06:56 <ynpvisitor58> ?
06:07:11 <Bill> Yeah, Norris, UGB then back
06:07:30 <Bill> Hopefully the seismo and temp loggers will be up and running by lunch time
06:07:38 <ynpvisitor58> nice, have agreat trip
06:07:44 <Corless> :thumbsup:
06:07:51 <ynpvisitor108> That would be wonderful - appreciate your hard work!
06:08:22 <Dave from B™> Be safe Bill. Can wait to see seismo lines again
06:08:25 <Dave from B™> Can't
06:11:21 <ynpvisitor58> Lets remember 0732 if Bill says the logs are rolled and cage is wet :)
06:11:32 <ynpvisitor58> )&%@
06:11:40 <ynpvisitor58> 0752*
06:11:47 <ynpvisitor108> Looking at steam cloud and persistence, it could be a "Giant Function" eruption - these are smaller than "Mastiff Function"
06:11:53 <Bill> Just to temper expectations: our network people THINK the problem is a bad battery backup going to their network hub for Norris. There may be other problems too, but this is a really solid lead.
06:12:10 <ynpvisitor58> dummy on keyboard
06:13:09 <ynpvisitor58> I'll put in Giant with a ?
06:14:59 <ynpvisitor108> I would bet it is Giant. Steam cloud should dissipate by the 90 minute mark if it is.
06:16:51 <ynpvisitor58> Is that Grotto to its right?
06:17:24 <Corless> so are there 2 features going there at once right now?
06:18:13 <ynpvisitor108> Unlikely to be Grotto in addition to Giant.
06:18:40 <ynpvisitor58> looks like, but OF steam messing with the view
06:20:14 <ynpvisitor80> given wind blowing to the left, it looks more like Grotto location to me
06:20:41 <Corless> hey Graham
06:21:03 <GO GIANT> hi. have not watched the start tho
06:22:10 <GO GIANT> now its closer to Giant spot, i dont know
06:22:32 <ynpvisitor108> Looking at the top of the steam cloud, looks like breeze is left to right down basin.
06:22:43 <Art> I always like to look at the velocity of the steam cloud as Grotto tends to look more anemic
06:22:44 <Corless> 108, I agree
06:26:53 <ynpvisitor58> This is `35min in
06:29:25 <Art> Pretty cool if it is Giant as this would be the 3rd interval that is right at the 6 day mark
06:30:26 <Jimbo Rubidium> I'll weigh in - watching the steam rising right now, that's Giant power (Grotto doesn't erupt high enough to put the steam this high)
06:31:17 <ynpvisitor53> It is Giant -- water was visible at the start
06:32:38 <Jimbo Rubidium> So why are people still talking like it's unsure?
06:32:58 <ynpvisitor53> I don't know
06:33:08 <Dave from B™> Sounds like Dave just watched the replay:)
06:33:20 <ynpvisitor53> Yes I did
06:33:44 <Art> https://i.redd.it/wuolxjd3cg521.png
06:33:50 <Art> Chart of all eruptions to date
06:33:59 <Corless> I didn't see the water at the start
06:34:17 <ynpvisitor58> I looked at the replay again it is clear that is Giant at the right place
06:34:35 <Corless> thanks, 58
06:34:55 <Jimbo Rubidium> Where is this reply of which you speak? I thought the daily reply didn't post til the next day.
06:35:03 <Jimbo Rubidium> reply = replay
06:35:17 <Jimbo Rubidium> drn sticky "a" key
06:35:19 <ynpvisitor58> I do my own recording
06:35:20 <Art> Some folks have access to the feed
06:35:23 <Jimbo Rubidium> Oh
06:36:10 <ynpvisitor53> Since I'm the one that posts the replay, I have access throughout the day.
06:36:10 <Jimbo Rubidium> Well, that's cool -- NOW Giant get consistent. I promised myself if it did this during the summer I'd fly out to see it.
06:37:07 <Corless> we discussed Giant a little bit ago, and it heard us....
06:37:21 <ynpvisitor58> Thanks DaveM for checking Giant for us
06:42:08 <Dave from B™> So, for 2019, more or less eruptions from each of the big 4? I think Giant has the best chance for more.
06:54:51 <Rice> If it is Giant, I called it at 7:27, "anytime between now and Christmas"
06:55:06 <ynpvisitor58> It is beautiful with Giant in the background
06:55:37 <ynpvisitor58> Yes, you were spot on :)
06:56:17 <ynpvisitor58> and it [u]is[u] Giant
06:56:26 <ynpvisitor11> just got here. is that Giant erupting now? isn't it too far left?
06:56:45 <ynpvisitor58> that is giant
07:02:28 <ynpvisitor11> thanks, remarkable year continues
07:04:35 <ynpvisitor11> OF ie
07:07:24 <ynpvisitor58> Steph, you got here just in time to see the remains of Giant
07:09:05 <Steph> YES! Seriously you have no idea how happy that makes me. I am literally on another screen with a fraudulent payment on paypal....
07:09:05 <ynpvisitor58> and it is about done
07:10:48 <ynpvisitor58> Turban
07:12:17 <ynpvisitor79> Did I miss anything?
07:12:39 <ynpvisitor58> Yes
07:13:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like a bad morning to be working in the shop.
07:13:11 <ynpvisitor58> Bh at 0700 Giant 0752
07:16:09 <ynpvisitor58> I'll leave Giantess and Splendid for you...If they don't erupt in the next 45 min :)
07:20:57 <Steph> Still cute, if a little unkempt. :lol::lol::lol:
07:21:46 <Corless> WBFKAS - white blob formerly known as Snow
07:23:42 <ynpvisitor58> Reminds me of one of Caspers friends
07:24:15 <Corless> Bulger?
07:24:30 <Corless> or is it Spasmodic?
07:24:54 <ynpvisitor58> Looks spasmodic
07:25:09 <Corless> ok, thanks
07:43:16 <Steph> Well, I am just thrilled that in the short time I was on this morning I got to see Giant! I'm off to make Christmas candy. Caramels, fudge, cinnamon lollipops! Hopefully I'll see you guys this afternoon!
07:47:22 <Corless> hi and bye steph
07:56:52 <ynpvisitor103> On our way to see if snow survived the storm the other night
07:57:02 <ynpvisitor103> ⛄️
07:59:20 <ynpvisitor58> Snow is ok...his clothes and sign are with the Rangers
07:59:37 <ynpvisitor103> Awesome
08:02:07 <Kevin L™🌵> He looks cold
08:03:27 <ynpvisitor58> Sorry Kevin, lost track of time again.
08:03:35 <Kevin L™🌵> NP
08:07:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Snow is getting some first aid.
08:13:28 <Kevin L™🌵> 7.3 eq just now in western Russia.
08:14:07 <Kevin L™🌵> 3.1 eq in West at 1036
08:14:25 <kc (working)> not far from kamchatka
08:15:26 <Corless> 3.1 where?
08:15:50 <Kevin L™🌵> 29km wnw of West Yellowstone.
08:15:56 <ynpvisitor58> The one in west 16min before Giant
08:16:11 <Kevin L™🌵> They are leaving an angel to guard Snow.
08:16:16 <Corless> it's not 1036 yet
08:16:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Oops 0936
08:16:36 <Corless> :)
08:16:51 <Kevin L™🌵> It is on the OF seismo
08:16:53 <ynpvisitor58> Oh after giant
08:17:50 <Corless> look at the Hebgen seismo, too
08:20:43 <ynpvisitor28> ~~~
08:29:29 <Jimbo Polonium> I was so shook up I changed elements
08:30:58 <Dave from B™> Speaking of elements, I just learned this morning that next year is the 150th anniversary of the Periodic Table.
08:32:36 <Jimbo Polonium> I'll Ba-ke a Ca-ke.
08:33:26 <Dave from B™> haha
08:33:41 <Jimbo Polonium> I think jiggles from the Russian quake (not cake) are showing up on YFT seismo now
08:34:23 <Kevin L™🌵> It does look like it
08:34:46 <Jimbo Polonium> 3.3 just now near Homer Alaska
08:34:51 <LindaG> Seriously I missed giant. 🙁
08:34:59 <Casey> I missed Giant? I was awake too... just meeting with a client.
08:35:10 <BSK> I missed Giant, too. :(
08:35:16 <LindaG> We missed casey
08:35:40 <Casey> Sad day. We need a support group.
08:35:40 <LindaG> Oh no we all did
08:36:14 <LindaG> I was hoping it would wait for my shift.
08:36:42 <Casey> I was late for Beehive (never changed my name off the numbered visitor name) then left before Giant.
08:37:28 <LindaG> Maybe we can merge it with the "I waited for hours for beehive and it never happened" group
08:38:33 <LindaG> I did see some of bee this morning but had to go after that
08:39:15 <Jimbo Polonium> 5.6 aftershock off Kamchatka
08:39:23 <Casey> At this rate, we'll have more support groups than geysers.
08:39:31 <LindaG> Is that person kneeling? Brrrrr
08:39:57 <Jimbo Polonium> Definite Russian quake shaking on YFT now
08:40:13 <LindaG> Wow sure is
08:40:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Got it good.
08:40:21 <BSK> Wearing snowpants, so probably not cold, but I would have a heck of a time getting up if I stayed in that position for that long.
08:40:35 <Casey> I have seen a historic Giant Hot Period (huge Mastiff with no Giant) but have still never seen Giant erupt live. I plan on catching it this year though. (Dates TBD)
08:40:36 <Jimbo Polonium> starting 1019 so about 18 minute travel time
08:41:09 <Casey> *This year meaning within the next 365 days... not before January 1
08:42:54 <LindaG> I hope you get to see it. It's been going once a week for a little while. If it continues that will make your life easier.
08:43:24 <LindaG> BSK, maybe he's stuck, I would be. 😉
08:43:56 <LindaG> Of ie
08:44:18 <LindaG> Nice
08:45:09 <Casey> If all these geysers were easy to see we'd think of them like many think of OF. The scarcity and unpredictability is part of what makes gazing so exciting.
08:51:23 <Corless> Casey, I agree
08:54:08 <Corless> Norris Museum, YNM, is back online. Yay Bill
08:54:22 <Kevin L™🌵> :)

08:54:54 <BSK> Whoo hoo!
08:55:04 <Art> Thermal Bread for Christmas anyone?
08:58:24 <Jimbo Polonium> A 2.5 in Alaska - Russian quake may have shaken a few things around in the fault lines
08:59:02 <ynpvisitor39> I like Dave's new advertising song that was posted last night.
09:00:00 <ynpvisitor39> Who knew he could sing
09:00:12 <Corless> If I had a little geyser out my back door, I wouldn't be compromising it's aesthetics for some bread :)
09:00:28 <LindaG> Grand
09:00:31 <ynpvisitor39> Grand
09:01:09 <ynpvisitor39> Better then a hot tub
09:02:57 <Dave from B™> I can't sing
09:03:04 <ynpvisitor39> You could do like the Japanese do at a hot spring and boil eggs.
09:03:22 <Dave from B™> Hey, is it true there is going to be a wolf piece on 60 Minutes this sunday?
09:03:39 <LindaG> Yes it is true
09:04:23 <LindaG> Tracking the wolves of yellowstone
09:05:10 <LindaG> Doug Smith was interviewed for it
09:05:25 <Dave from B™> Thanks...I wasn't dreaming after all
09:05:46 <ynpvisitor39> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weWAr_UPnYI
09:05:46 <LindaG> Mountain journal posted it on facebook
09:07:38 <Corless> https://www.facebook.com/InternationalWolfCenter/photos/a.380747344799/10156838121654800/?type=3&theater
09:08:00 <Corless> ^ about the wolf story
09:09:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Daisy
09:09:58 <ynpvisitor39> Good timing
09:09:59 <Corless> been a good morning, even though I just missed BH
09:10:12 <LindaG> Lots happening
09:10:24 <Corless> I was up, just didnt check in
09:10:43 <LindaG> Grand just spiked, does that mean it's a 2
09:13:59 <ynpvisitor39> Well, not much left but Old Dependable, enjoy the day.
09:15:00 <Dave from B™> Who's driving the snoozefest this afternoon?
09:17:59 <LindaG> I guess even lion is done for a while 🙁
09:21:44 <Kevin L™🌵> I have my economy sized bottle of NoDoz® ready.
09:22:45 <Corless> maybe the quakes will wake up Sawmill today
09:22:46 <Jimbo Polonium> Watch the earthquake map! 2 5.0 aftershocks in Kamchatka and 3.3 in central Alaska.
09:23:05 <Jimbo Polonium> https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/
09:24:12 <Dave from B™> What was the initial Kamchatka magnitude?
09:24:37 <Corless> 7.4
09:24:59 <Corless> nothing here in th elocal news
09:25:55 <LindaG> I've seen reporters from 7.4 to 7.8
09:26:19 <Jimbo Polonium> USGS official is 7.4
09:28:31 <ynpvisitor97> This is Mike, from USGS. Just wanted to let y'all know that YNM seismic is back up and running (there was a network issue at the Norris Museum that the Park was able to resolve today). There is a lot of noise on the instrument starting shortly after 10 AM MST today, but that's caused by people walking around in the museum as part of the maintenance work.
09:29:10 <LindaG> Great news, we've been admiring it.
09:30:20 <LindaG> Thank you.
09:30:33 <Kevin L™🌵> We appreciate your efforts Mike.
09:30:37 <Dave from B™> Thanks Craig, Linda, Jimbo
09:35:58 <Corless> Mike from USGS, thanks for fixing it, and all the maintaining of it.
09:36:24 <ynpvisitor97> It's all thanks to NPS. I'm just the messenger.
09:36:40 <Corless> :thumbsup:
09:37:30 <Corless> Jimbo, that quake page is cool, I saved it to my faves
09:37:38 <LindaG> I put grand I to gr but I do t know if it had a second s burst, I think maybe it did
09:38:22 <LindaG> *into gt but I dont know
09:38:46 <LindaG> Anyone know?
09:39:25 <Kevin L™🌵> I would call it a one. That last spike was probably a dying gasp.
09:39:37 <LindaG> Ok
09:54:14 <ynpvisitor89> Dow down 450 ☹
09:57:02 <Corless> I havent been able to look at my stocks anymore... just need to let it ride and wait for it to make its way back whenever it does
10:03:30 <Jimbo Polonium> Likelihood of government shutdown tomorrow night just went way up
10:04:25 <Kevin L™🌵> OF was early
10:12:36 <LindaG> They're quibbling again?
10:13:22 <LindaG> Does the camera at least stay on?
10:13:58 <Corless> Living in Utah is great because of the beautiful places..... BUT, when I read comments in local news sites, I am disgusted by the brainwashed party loyalists here
10:14:05 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it may but who knows.
10:14:10 <LindaG> Kids love snow
10:14:51 <Kevin L™🌵> We need to send a bunch of these things to Congress: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Philips-Avent-Classic-Walmart-Deco-Pacifier-6-18m-pink-elephants-2-pack-SCF189-25/418418457
10:14:54 <Corless> many people here in Utah want the gvot to shut down until they let the big guy have his wall
10:15:26 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, lol a bunch of those are needed
10:16:08 <LindaG> Have the thought about the wildlife? What will it do to them?
10:17:04 <Jimbo Polonium> The camera would be turned off. It was turned off last time.
10:17:16 <LindaG> Bummer
10:17:36 <LindaG> Snow is being g manhandled
10:17:37 <Kevin L™🌵> No, last time it was left on. The harry reid shutdown it was turned off.
10:18:46 <Jimbo Polonium> Really? I thought there was a notice that it was off.
10:19:23 <Jimbo Polonium> I know we have to turn off our Web site access.
10:20:58 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it depends on the rules of the tantrum.
10:21:42 <Kevin L™🌵> I know we were able to call in LE during that time for some people who thought they could wander anywhere they wanted.
10:23:33 <ynpvisitor106> I remember that Kevin. The guide that took his people up close and personal with OF
10:23:58 <Corless> wow
10:24:26 <ynpvisitor106> on the bw, yet with snowmobiles
10:25:02 <ynpvisitor106> I wonder if the people gathered now know how far away the next OF is
10:25:55 <Rice> Border walls in history have always worked out so well, The Great Wall of China, The Berlin Wall, both Great Examples
10:26:57 <Rice> On a less politcial note, YNM siesmo is back up!!
10:27:19 <ynpvisitor106> yes, we know
10:27:35 <ynpvisitor106> here's to it staying up
10:27:41 <BSK> until shutdown - oh...
10:28:09 <ynpvisitor106> shutdown should not affect it
10:28:43 <ynpvisitor106> Bill from Geology is supposed to be in the UGB today
10:29:01 <ynpvisitor17> I am more interested in the daily graphs than the seismo, hope they update too
10:29:18 <ynpvisitor106> YVO would not shut them down
10:29:47 <ynpvisitor106> looks like most of them are still down anyway
10:29:51 <Corless> is that Bill Beverly?
10:30:09 <ynpvisitor106> no, Bill Beverly does not work for NPS
10:30:21 <Corless> ohhhh, my mistake, I had been thinking it was
10:30:41 <ynpvisitor106> Young un Bill, not too far out of college
10:30:50 <Corless> so who is his employer for the bookstore?
10:31:12 <ynpvisitor106> Yellowstone Forever runs the bookstores in the park
10:31:21 <Corless> ok, thanks
10:44:16 <fishynp> seismic sites are operated by the University of Utah so a government shut down would not affect them at all.
10:44:58 <fishynp> Norris temperature sensor network is operated by the USGS, so a government shut down could affect them but I'm not sure about that.
10:51:24 <BSK> I want the cam to stay up. I want to be able to operate it on my shift. I want the FCC site to be down so I can procrastinate on a tedious task.
11:01:32 <Dave from B™> I thought shutdown was avoided
11:01:56 <BSK> new temper tantrum
11:03:49 <Dave from B™> Thanks Katie...big shock there
11:06:40 <ynpvisitor58> We went through a shutdown before... and we all lived to tell about it:)
11:07:57 <BSK> I'd rather shutdown than cave on $5 billion to... (what I want to say isn't fit for civil conversation, so I'll just leave that hanging)
11:08:48 <Dave from B™> I hear ya, Katie....I'll fill in the blanks
11:09:27 <Corless> hope it doesn't shut down Mueller... an indictment on Ind 1 would make for a great Christmas
11:10:54 <Kevin L™🌵> I wish they would shut down Nevada Government next year. It isn't going to be good.
11:16:09 <BSK> Just saw a comment on FB that made me, truly, laugh out loud:
11:16:29 <BSK> "I haven't followed news in two years. How's he shutting down the Mexican government for not paying for the all?"
11:16:36 <BSK> *wall
11:16:41 <Corless> LMAO
11:17:16 <Corless> I shared one yesterday, Let them build the wall out of HIllary's emails, since no one can get over them.
11:17:20 <Dave from B™> haha
11:18:35 <ynpvisitor74> Yuh idiots know how to put a person off his gassing mood. Thanks for ruining this chat with your political nonsense.
11:19:07 <Corless> sorry
11:19:30 <Corless> you're right, we have other places to vent those things
11:23:00 <ynpvisitor80> Yuh idiots know how to put a person off his gassing mood? And you are calling others idiots?
11:23:02 <ynpvisitor44> The things that the people on this chat love are affected by political nonsense. Relevant.
11:23:08 <ynpvisitor37> Agreed - this isn't the place for encouraging illegality and spewing lies & hate speech.
11:23:22 <Casey> looks like riverside is ie
11:23:57 <ynpvisitor44> cnn.com lead picture is hilarious. Looks like a 3 year old refusing to eat veggies.
11:24:12 <ynpvisitor11> what is a gassing mood?
11:24:20 <Jimbo Polonium> I posted about the shutdown because of the potential for park closure and cam unavailability.
11:25:12 <ynpvisitor44> jimbo my point exactly above @132302
11:25:34 <Jimbo Polonium> :thumbsup::thumbsup:
11:26:20 <Corless> I have a weakness for opining politically, but there is a time and a place
11:26:50 <ynpvisitor44> when it affects what we're doing here, here is the time and place.
11:27:26 <Kevin L™🌵> We may not all agree on politics, but we do love the geysers. I can understand a vent of frustration at times even if I may not agree.
11:27:45 <ynpvisitor11> the webcam was shutdown during the last shutdown, all the seismos and USGS stayed up?
11:27:53 <Casey> In general, this seems like a place where people are reasonable. We're all human. We have opinions.
11:28:11 <Kevin L™🌵> And in the end we all still like each other!
11:28:26 <ynpvisitor17> 2013 YVO did not stay up , I remember that
11:28:31 <Dave from B™> Yep...I like everyone here...no matter your political views
11:30:31 <ynpvisitor11> Riverside
11:30:39 <BSK> :)
11:35:15 <Dave from B™> AS long as you all agree with every single prediction I make...you're good:)
11:35:51 <BSK> Oh, then I'm safe.
11:35:59 <Kevin L™🌵> We trust them more if you aren't going there.
11:36:07 <BSK> ha ha
11:37:15 <Dave from B™> Kevin, it is funny how we can have a run of bad luck. I remember your bus duty BH luck of a few years (5?) ago. That was crazy
11:38:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I know what you mean. It seemed to know and would even go when I was on off normal hours.
11:38:59 <Dave from B™> It took me 10 years of Labor Day and June trips to catch F&M for the first time
11:39:13 <LindaG> Nice to see all those people.
11:39:34 <Kevin L™🌵> I finally gave up and parked myself down there for 40 hours to see my first one.
11:40:00 <LindaG> You slept down there?
11:41:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Napped is a better word. You could have a blanket to cover you but you could not camp there.
11:41:46 <Dave from B™> Besides at that time, there were still probably cars going by on the road:)
11:42:09 <Kevin L™🌵> One guy would make a munchie run after the hot cycle.
11:42:22 <Kevin L™🌵> No cars at that point.
11:42:39 <Corless> horses?
11:43:01 <Dave from B™> Craig, I like the way you think!
11:43:05 <Corless> :)
11:43:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Ox teams.
11:43:54 <LindaG> 😁🐂
11:44:09 <Corless> back when everyone wore suits or dresses on horseback
11:44:24 <Dave from B™> It is crazy when you think of it what we do in the name of geysers. Never thought I would wait 6-7 hours for Artemesia, 14 hours 2 days in a row for SB and so on
11:45:01 <LindaG> I'm an avid birder so I'm used to such dedication.
11:45:49 <BSK> I didn't know you are a birder, Linda. yay!
11:46:04 <LindaG> OF
11:46:16 <ynpvisitor44> great static shot
11:46:35 <LindaG> I never mentioned that I thought you knew. I knew you were.
11:47:01 <Kevin L™🌵> My Uncle did a lot of studies of birds around Zion Park. A lot of his pictures still appear in books. His name is Jerome Gifford.
11:47:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Pretty static
11:48:15 <LindaG> Oh nice I'll have to look for that name. It's hard to say geysers are easier, but at least they stay put.
11:48:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes they do. I am amazed at the birds I find around my house. LOTS of quail.
11:49:07 <BSK> They may stay put, but you can still get dipped with a geyser. Right, Dave?
11:51:15 <LindaG> Yeah it may be but if it doesn't go off...
11:51:35 <LindaG> Quail is pretty rare in the east by me.
11:52:02 <LindaG> *may be there
11:52:30 <Dave from B™> haha Katie...yes, staring at dirt was my motto for 2018
11:53:01 <Kevin L™🌵> I love it when you get a bunch of juveniles in a row behind the adults. I try to give them places that protect them from cats.
11:53:12 <Corless> Linda, if you are on FB, you might want to look up Ron Dudley, he does an amazing birding blog pretty much daily.
11:53:31 <BSK> Yes, Ron's posts are great. Good guy, too.
11:53:43 <Corless> wow, you know him, too?
11:53:56 <LindaG> I'll check it out, thanks.
11:54:15 <Corless> another is Mia McPherson
11:55:08 <BSK> I became acquainted with him (and Mia) when someone directed him to a blog post I made about an unethical photog with whom he had also had an encounter and had likewise blogged about it.
11:55:28 <LindaG> Well I guess I know Ron also, I following him.
11:56:16 <Corless> cool, small world.... I interact with them almost daily, even though I have never met either of them
11:56:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Daisy
11:57:19 <LindaG> We'll be doing Christmas bird count on 1/5
11:57:24 <Corless> was it about baiting birds?
11:58:03 <Corless> I rememebr a blog about baiting a great gray owl
11:58:22 <BSK> My post wasn't about baiting birds - but the creep I was writing about is an owl baiter, too.
11:59:13 <BSK> My post was about walking right up to a badger sett near Hitching Post (hidden from the road) and putting a camera with wide angle lens (remotely controlled) right on the sett.
11:59:27 <Corless> I love birds, but am not a 'birder'. I mostly go looking for raptors
11:59:49 <LindaG> That great grey owl thing sounds familiar
12:00:19 <BSK> When I posted it, people who had observed him engaged in other activities that disturb wildlife posted comments. The server my blog was on was infected with ransomware.
12:00:33 <Dave from B™> I took a 5 day birding class at the YI about 15-20 years ago. It was a blast
12:00:57 <BSK> I lost the blog and all the comments (and the yellowstone.net forums, much to my dismay). I re-created and re-posted my blog entries, but all comments are gone.
12:01:35 <Corless> we had a GGO hanging near where I live in Northern Utah, which was very rare, and I got to see it on 3 different days.
12:01:40 <BSK> Michael Furtman has documented this creep baiting snowies and boreal owls in Minnesota.
12:01:57 <LindaG> The great thing about birding is you can do it anywhere as long as you have good binoculars or really good eyes.
12:02:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Been getting some good boils on Giantess.
12:04:01 <Corless> air is really clear today, that Daisy looked pretty sharp even without sun
12:04:09 <LindaG> Trump is digging in on wall, no comments necessary 😉
12:04:50 <Corless> :)
12:05:37 <LindaG> I wouldn't even mention it if it weren't for the fact that if affects us.
12:06:19 <Corless> it isnt out of line, but I go over the line with my venting
12:06:36 <LindaG> It would be nice if giantess went before Jan. 1st.
12:07:40 <BSK> I'm going to lunch. It would be awesome if Giantess welcomed me back. :)
12:07:42 <ynpvisitor44> The lines have been removed all around. Equal return fire is fair.
12:07:59 <Jimbo Polonium> Speaking of bird watching (I literally just saw this) https://www.nasa.gov/feature/north-american-bird-maps-enter-the-space-age
12:08:41 <ynpvisitor58> I handed Giantess over to Kevin at shift change...If it does not erupt it is his fault :)
12:09:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Hey, last time it erupted it was on my shift!
12:11:06 <Corless> how long ago was it
12:13:01 <Dave from B™> I was at the dentist and my phone wouldn't stop dinging in my pocket while I was in the chair
12:13:03 <ynpvisitor007> With all the stupid new rules, I gave up flying. I would almost fly to philie to get a chicken box from Popeyes
12:13:39 <ynpvisitor007> My dentist askes to shut your phone off
12:13:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Love that chicken at Popeyes!
12:14:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave was at the dentist on the last Giantess too.
12:15:02 <ynpvisitor007> Giantess will go after midnight Friday.
12:15:25 <LindaG> ynpvisitor007, probably
12:15:34 <Dave from B™> I didn't know James Bond made geyser predictions.
12:16:08 <ynpvisitor007> Call chuck and tell him he will see better if he pulls his head out.
12:16:15 <ynpvisitor83> We will still see it the camera will be on wide
12:16:49 <LindaG> Go eBird and Nasa, thanks Jimbo
12:17:39 <Jimbo Polonium> 3.5 quake in SoCal and a 2.6 in Alaska. I haven't been watching this daily so I wonder if the Alaska quakes are all still aftershocks from the bigger one a couple of weeks ago - location is right
12:19:43 <ynpvisitor007> Sure wish caulifornia would hurry up and leave the continent.
12:20:35 <Corless> 7.4 quake in Russia this morning, too
12:20:35 <Kevin L™🌵> If it does it This week I can save the hassle of a Disneyland trip.
12:20:41 <ynpvisitor007> It would be nice to be able to fish in the ocean down by Klamath falls.
12:21:25 <ynpvisitor007> Go to Crater Lake and the beach all on the same day.
12:21:50 <Kevin L™🌵> I would have ocean front property.
12:22:39 <ynpvisitor007> Kevin, aren't you a little old to go get your picture taken with Mickey?
12:23:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes I am. Granddaughter isn't though.
12:23:38 <ynpvisitor007> Is she old enough to remember?
12:23:49 <LindaG> I really enjoyed disneyworld, notnsure how Disneyland is.
12:24:42 <Kevin L™🌵> She is 5 now.
12:24:59 <Dave from B™> My kids prefer Disneyland over Disney World
12:25:04 <Kevin L™🌵> What I am REALLY not looking forward to is the traffic. :p
12:25:12 <Corless> that's when the fun ages start for girls, til about 11
12:25:41 <ynpvisitor007> I have not been since they stopped selling tickets
12:26:17 <ynpvisitor007> Traffic? I thought uber fixed all that
12:26:21 <LindaG> Dave from B™, I'm not sure what the difference is.
12:27:51 <ynpvisitor007> Is the berry farm still going?
12:28:14 <ynpvisitor007> I liked it as much as disney
12:30:16 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it is. I am sure less crowded. My daughter was awarded this from her job and this is the only time they can make it. Has to be used before year end and he is a teacher.
12:32:28 <ynpvisitor007> Around here teachers get lots of days off. Winter break would not be my first choice.
12:33:23 <Kevin L™🌵> He is student teaching right now so he doesn't have much choice.
12:34:06 <ynpvisitor007> Didn't he get a week for Thanksgiving?
12:35:19 <ynpvisitor007> Better to be a student teacher, then a student fish monger. They never get days off.
12:35:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes, but that is when we had all the kids here.
12:36:23 <ynpvisitor007> They did not think well, could have left you with the kids and they could have gone top play
12:37:23 <ynpvisitor007> Not much hot water, enjoy the almost blue sky.
13:19:58 <Kevin L™🌵> GT is stressing
13:21:54 <STS> Please disregard whatever my phone and app just did
13:22:05 <STS> I deleted everything
13:23:24 <ynpvisitor96> GT has problems...5 secondary eruptions on OF
13:23:53 <STS> NPS has this one as a short
13:25:07 <Kevin L™🌵> It was either a long short or a short long.
13:25:55 <ynpvisitor96> 1516:15 to 1518:29
13:26:27 <STS> Pretty solid short then
13:26:57 <Kevin L™🌵> That would be a short
13:31:41 <ynpvisitor96> Looks like one of Casper the ghost partners
13:31:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Poor snow is looking more like a huge pile of albino bison poop now.
13:31:52 <ynpvisitor96> :)
13:43:54 <ynpvisitor59> what is that over the be at the Anemones??
13:44:32 <ynpvisitor59> is it snow`?
13:44:50 <Kevin L™🌵> May be Improbable
13:44:53 <ynpvisitor59> looks like a snowfield
13:45:15 <Betty> hi Kevin
13:45:28 <Betty> no opposite of bw
13:45:37 <Betty> it is snow
13:45:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Could be runoff from Giantess
13:45:59 <Betty> thanks for having a look
13:46:35 <Betty> nice to see another Giant eruption
13:48:31 <Betty> I´m only lurking, ready to hit the road for the Alps in 90 min
13:48:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Fun! How long will you be there?
13:49:11 <Dave from B™> Lion is getting ready
13:49:20 <Betty> only till sunday evening
13:49:23 <Betty> hi Dave
13:49:51 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
13:50:13 <Betty> Anemone
13:52:20 <Betty> time for a short nap. See ya all
13:52:41 <Dave from B™> Have fun Betty
13:52:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight
13:54:25 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't think Dave will have a good Knight though.
13:56:24 <Dave from B™> Go Isles!
14:07:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Did you see that game last Knight Dave?
14:28:14 <Casey> OF
14:52:07 <ynpvisitor106> Time for Grand
14:52:53 <ynpvisitor83> yes and castle
14:55:20 <Kevin L™🌵> And Aurum
14:56:20 <ynpvisitor106> well covered, cam op
14:59:40 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I didn't see the game last night. In Laws arrived last night
15:00:56 <Kevin L™🌵> It was pretty intense. 3 major fights in the first 4 minutes. One guy never made it back to the ice.
15:02:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Once it settled down it was a great game.
15:03:49 <Dave from B™> Yeah...I'm glad fighting isn't as prevalent as years ago.
15:04:39 <Kevin L™🌵> This was totally out of line. A good hard game is great. WWF not so much so.
15:06:00 <ynpvisitor58> Did Bill or anyone in basin get to Giant today?
15:06:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Haven't heard of anyone.
15:07:07 <ynpvisitor58> tks
15:12:04 <ynpvisitor106> Castle wins
15:13:12 <ynpvisitor106> 1711 wc
15:31:03 <kcmule> think grand started around 17:26
15:34:18 <ynpvisitor106> it could get bright if the clouds dissipate
16:07:33 <kcmule> OF ie
16:11:54 <ynpvisitor106> nice view
16:24:59 <LindaG> It is a nice night. Cloudy and rai ing where I am so this is nice.
17:18:17 <kcmule> daisy ie
18:09:20 <Kevin L™🌵> It's Knight time.
19:36:55 <ynpvisitor30> B.H. behind ol' fluffy
19:37:36 <Kevin L™🌵> yes it is
19:38:18 <ynpvisitor63> well well
19:38:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Bad timing and wind direction.
19:38:35 <ynpvisitor63> it's been worse!
19:51:54 <ynpvisitor63> Daisy ie
