04:58:35 <Joe> morning Graham
05:06:26 <Betty> morning all
05:08:15 <Joe> hi Betty
05:08:28 <Betty> hi Joe
05:15:00 <Betty> Daisy
05:15:14 <Joe> daisy
05:35:36 <Betty> seems to become a nice day
05:42:20 <GO FUND ME (14)> its about time we saw a Giant cloud for the new year
05:43:02 <GO FUND ME (14)> i guss we probably missed one around NY
05:43:07 <CraigC> thinking the same thing this morning, would be a good day for it
05:44:33 <GO FUND ME (14)> i would have preferred it to be less than 10 days ... maybe 6+6
05:49:03 <Joe> There hasn't been anyone back there who report logs rolled, the only person back there just registered on GT this year so I don't know if they know what to look for
05:58:23 <Dave from B™> Morning Graham, Joe, Craig
05:58:33 <CraigC> hey Dave, how's it going
05:58:59 <Betty> hi Dave and Craig
05:59:08 <Dave from B™> It's great. got to sleep in today...no alarm clock...just got to work. Not scheduled today but going to put in 3-4 hours for fun:)
05:59:10 <CraigC> hey Betty
05:59:35 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
06:00:21 <GO FUND ME (14)> slept well because you saw SB?
06:00:42 <Betty> OF
06:01:20 <Dave from B™> Who said anything about sleeping well?:)
06:02:11 <GO FUND ME (14)> haha .... well maybe thats why you are working for fun today rather than watching the seismo
06:06:36 <GO FUND ME (14)> bluefin tuna sold for $3.1M in Tokyo, 613 pounds .... Dave did you buy it?
06:08:03 <GO FUND ME (14)> $5,000 / pound at the fish market ... thats going to be expensive sushii
06:08:21 <Dave from B™> Yeah...that never makes it to MT. Most sold in Japan
06:09:18 <CraigC> I rarely eat the raw tuna anymore after seeing an article about worms
06:10:18 <GO FUND ME (14)> only about 4% of the stock are left after all the overfishing. Yeah i bet US doesnt want to pay that for raw fish
06:12:14 <Dave from B™> Graham, do you have a link about your 4% claim?
06:16:51 <GO FUND ME (14)> https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2019/01/05/bluefin-tuna-sells-record-million-tokyo-fish-market-scarcity-clouds-celebration/?utm_term=.f427103df269
06:17:25 <Dave from B™> Thanks
06:17:59 <GO FUND ME (14)> attributed to Pew Charitable Trust, down to 3.5%
06:25:25 <Dave from B™> I don't believe other species of tuna are overfished as much as bluefin. When multiple countries are involved it is much harder to protect species. In most fisheries, we are seeing improvements. However, global warming of our oceans is becoming a big problem. And, as the population in the world grows, wild fish CAN'T be the only option. there are many great farm raised products out there.
06:26:30 <Dave from B™> Our #1 product we sell among over 400 items both fresh and frozen is Farm rasied Ora King Salmon from New Zealand. It is a great consistent sustainable product
06:27:07 <Dave from B™> Even "Green" places such as the Bozeman Coop sell it.
06:28:37 <GO FUND ME (14)> glad to hear that Dave, agree sustainable fisheries are the way to go and preserve the wild soecies. who knows how global climate change will impact it
06:31:08 <Dave from B™> Species are starting to move northward out of normal ranges to find colder water. Global warming is occuring, even if some say it isn't human caused. Governments need to avoid short term economic gains and face these long term problems
06:31:38 <CraigC> amen
06:32:04 <CraigC> cool static cam shot
06:35:18 <GO FUND ME (14)> i heard the lobsters are moving north on the East coast too, could be Nova Scotia lobsters rather than Main lobsters in the future
06:36:28 <Dave from B™> Yep
06:38:55 <Dave from B™> There have been a lot of improvements to seafood sustainability but when you get an administration like the current one, you can lose decades of improvement
06:42:34 <Dave from B™> So, there has been confirmation from the field that Giant signs are still intact?
07:30:10 <GO FUND ME (14)> i have not heard any reports from Giant since Janet's report seeing a big steam cloud
07:30:38 <GO FUND ME (14)> may not be any reports for 2 weeks and 1 day
07:31:03 <GO FUND ME (14)> and 4hours or so
07:31:06 <Kevin L™🌵> 4h13m22s....
07:32:21 <Dave from B™> I hope you see something big
07:32:34 <GO FUND ME (14)> snowcoach should get in at 1200 on 20th, so some checking time and then onto Geyser Hill unless Grand is due
07:33:00 <GO FUND ME (14)> will get down to Giant sometime that afternon
07:33:18 <GO FUND ME (14)> even if Giantess is erupting :)
07:34:10 <Betty> are you there already, Graham?
07:35:13 <Betty> oh, on the 20th, I see now....
07:35:21 <GO FUND ME (14)> arrive at OF on 20th
07:35:36 <Betty> who can read is always in advantage :-p
07:40:13 <Kevin L™🌵> He who can read and comprehend has much more advantage.
07:40:54 <Dave from B™> hehe...how many languages do you and I speak, Kevin?:)
07:43:09 <Kevin L™🌵> მე მხოლოდ ინგლისურად ვსაუბრობ

08:13:19 <Dave from B™> All I see is spots
08:13:28 <Betty> I deleted it
08:13:50 <Betty> maybe it was a BH splash
08:14:05 <Betty> cam looks really ugly
08:16:22 <Betty> hhmm, looks still hot on static
08:18:14 <Betty> nope
08:20:39 <Betty> person on bw is watching closely
08:23:21 <Dave from B™> How can you see through all the spots?
08:24:47 <Betty> person is moving and there are some spotless spots :-D
08:25:12 <Betty> you can see him on static too
08:30:56 <Dave from B™> Great North Washburn view also

09:55:34 <GO FUND ME (14)> its fine in winter since nobody is there
09:56:07 <ynpvisitor76> Did I miss it, or still indy?
09:56:38 <GO FUND ME (14)> lion is happy
09:58:44 <Michael> Done for the day, unfortunately. Giant should be any minute though if we're lucky.
10:03:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Say thanks.
10:14:48 <Betty> thanks
10:19:46 <Betty> Daisy
10:25:36 <ynpvisitor41> Oh poo missed BH

10:26:30 <LindaG> I know, was out doing the Christmas bird count
10:26:43 <Betty> we almost could see nothing in that snowstorm, very ugly ;-)
10:26:46 <Kevin L™🌵> I was training.
10:27:08 <GO FUND ME (14)> the sun made it too hard to see
10:27:22 <LindaG> Didnt know there was a store.
10:27:32 <Kevin L™🌵> I know you have the blues Graham.
10:27:35 <Betty> ohh,that was sun :-D
10:28:30 <LindaG> Oh ok
10:30:57 <GO FUND ME (14)> and blue sky made the eruption vrtually invisible
10:31:21 <Kevin L™🌵> You could almost see the stars....
10:31:40 <GO FUND ME (14)> theres a video on FB Geyser Gazers page
10:35:56 <LindaG> Wow cool video, up close and personal.
10:36:43 <Betty> do you have a link?
10:40:21 <LindaG> I saw on Facebook, are you on?
10:40:54 <GO FUND ME (14)> its on Geyser Gazers FB page
10:41:06 <GO FUND ME (14)> i dont think we can share it as its a closed goup
10:41:42 <ynpvisitor12> isn't it day 15 of the shutdown? You are behind GFM
10:42:11 <GO FUND ME (14)> true

10:47:18 <LindaG> That's a long one and OF blocks it
10:47:31 <Betty> bummer
10:48:33 <Kevin L™🌵> It is Dave's fault.
10:48:55 <LindaG> We need to move OF
10:53:51 <LindaG> Dome on static
10:53:57 <Kevin L™🌵> We should install a steam suppressor
10:56:18 <LindaG> Something to suck up all that steam and create ice cream 😊
10:56:47 <Kevin L™🌵> 🍦Good idea!
10:56:57 <Betty> how do you know I just had ice cream? :-D
10:57:11 <LindaG> I know
10:57:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Spaghetti ice cream?

11:36:56 <Betty> Depression??
11:37:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like it could be.

13:37:14 <GO FUND ME (15)> hope it keeps doing that
13:41:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Short interval too. 5h30m!
14:07:29 <Betty> Lion
14:12:20 <ynpvisitor18> A Lioness eruption was just entered on GT!
14:13:24 <Betty> OF
14:13:47 <Kevin L™🌵> I believe that should be Lion
14:14:01 <Michael> I wasn't watching, but it seems most likely an auto-fill accident.
14:14:01 <Betty> I doubt that was Lioness
14:15:20 <Betty> I flagged the entry
14:18:29 <Betty> Dome
14:48:21 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
15:20:13 <Michael> Daisy
15:33:58 <Michael> Lion ie
16:06:21 <LindaG> Ah night time again.
16:06:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Isn't it so fun?
16:07:38 <LindaG> Pretty darn dark out there
16:08:03 <LindaG> At least I know I do t have to wait for bee
16:08:20 <LindaG> *don't
16:10:11 <Kevin L™🌵> It will probably go early tonight.
16:11:21 <LindaG> How come?
16:11:45 <Kevin L™🌵> It wants to torment us.
16:12:28 <LindaG> It's good at that!😊
16:13:13 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it has been taking lessons from Aurum.
16:13:37 <LindaG> Aurum is a tease
16:13:59 <Kevin L™🌵> BH went while I was on my train ride this morning.
16:14:21 <LindaG> I was driving home from birs
16:14:44 <LindaG> *birding all morning
16:15:03 <LindaG> Saw it on Facebook looked real nice
16:15:32 <Kevin L™🌵> They forgot to plug in the power cord to the generator car this morning. The inside of the train car was 40°.
16:16:02 <LindaG> That will keep you awake
16:16:31 <LindaG> Did t realize it got that cold where you are
16:17:16 <Kevin L™🌵> It was a bit chilly. It was warming up by the time we were getting back to the station.
16:17:18 <LindaG> *didn't
16:17:53 <Kevin L™🌵> We were down to 27° a few days ago. Lemon tree is stressing.
16:18:25 <LindaG> Is that temp normal for winter in nevada?
16:19:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Not quite normal, but not unusual either. I can remember one time it got down to 11°. NOT good for desert landscaping.
16:19:53 <LindaG> N? I would imagine not
16:20:07 <LindaG> Keyboard out of control
16:21:01 <Kevin L™🌵> It killed a lot of the new plants I had put in. I like to plant about this time of year so the roots get a good start. Gets them through the hot days in August.
16:23:16 <LindaG> Ever get snow?
16:24:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Oh yes. We had flurries last week. We had a storm the umped 8" on us one day. Took me 7 hours to get 23 miles from work to home.
16:25:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I will see if I can find some pictures.
16:25:43 <LindaG> Are you had a higher elevation
16:26:14 <Kevin L™🌵> 2149 feet.
16:26:46 <LindaG> Well that's higher than me. 😉
16:27:59 <Kevin L™🌵> I have that posted on the sign on my depot.
16:29:51 <LindaG> I'm at sea level
16:30:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Not too many hills in New Jersey
16:31:31 <LindaG> I'm in southern New Jersey, on edge of pine barrens, about 8 miles from ocean.
16:31:43 <LindaG> Northern New Jersey has mountains
16:34:24 <LindaG> Just looked it up, my town's elevation is 23 feet 😲
16:36:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Just a bit below me.
16:37:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Ft Dix is where I processed out of the army.
16:39:01 <LindaG> Fort dix is by me, planes fly over house real low
16:40:11 <Kevin L™🌵> It was a favorite place for many of us in Germany.
16:41:27 <LindaG> I just did some birding there, so I got to drive around in side. It was interesting. They have good grassland birds
16:42:18 <LindaG> My cousin went to Germany during g Vietnam, for missiles I think
16:43:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Do you know where in Germany. There were missiles at my base.
16:43:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Just sent you the snow pics
16:44:30 <LindaG> I dont really know. He toured Europe when he was done. His last name was pompilio
16:45:55 <LindaG> Nice snow, I guess your town doesn't have plows
16:47:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Nope. Even worse they use ceramic buttons for the lane markers so if they tried it would pop them off and they fly a couple of hundred feet!
16:49:47 <LindaG> Zero illumination of the moon, seriously cant see old faithful
16:50:16 <Kevin L™🌵> With clouds to boot does not give a good view.
16:50:38 <LindaG> What is that light on horizon? Cant be moon.
16:50:57 <Kevin L™🌵> That is the lights from West Yellowstone.
16:51:30 <LindaG> I thought maybe town buries quite a distance e
16:51:48 <LindaG> *but that is quite a distance
16:52:23 <Kevin L™🌵> The cam will make light appear to be brighter than it looks if you are standing there.
16:52:38 <LindaG> Oh ok
16:58:59 <LindaG> Well feel silly staring at black screen. Enjoy the evening. Good night
16:59:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight
17:26:43 <KittyM> Newby question: Where is that light coming from?
17:29:52 <KittyM> Because that made OF very pretty
17:31:10 <Kevin L™🌵> That is someone with a big flashlight on the boardwalk
17:31:46 <KittyM> :)
18:58:41 <ynpvisitor55> OF ie
