02:38:51 <ynpvisitor77> Lookout graham isles can tie tomorrow
02:39:15 <ynpvisitor77> Oops. I guess that would be today:)
06:28:39 <Sam> Morning all
06:29:06 <LindaGp> Good morning!
06:29:16 <LindaGp> OF ie
06:31:01 <CraigC> hey Sam and Linda
06:31:19 <LindaGp> Hi craig
06:31:56 <Sam> Hi Craig
06:33:55 <LindaGp> CraigC, had a good day biking yesterday?
06:34:52 <LindaGp> Sam, I think u left before beehive last night. Hope concert was good.
06:35:07 <BWaggs> Morning
06:35:24 <LindaGp> BWaggs, good morning, how r u?
06:35:41 <BWaggs> I am good Linda, how are you ?
06:36:20 <LindaGp> Good! On cam this morning.
06:38:23 <BWaggs> Great... looks to be a bit snowy in the park this morning. Hope it's clear enough to catch the sites
06:40:20 <CraigC> LindaGp, yeah, biking was great, but had an almost-encounter with a bison, that stood up and raised its tail as I passed.... got my heart going
06:41:24 <LindaGp> I saw the pic of him lying down. That will get your attention.
06:42:08 <LindaGp> BWaggs, pretty soon well see how clear it is. Morning is usually foggy.
06:43:07 <LindaGp> I think it may be a good viewing day. I can see the trees, that's encouraging.
06:43:13 <KittyM*> Good morning everyone. I hope it's a nice clear day in YNP. We have a blizzard on the way here in Colorado
06:43:53 <CraigC> LindaGp, the pic of the one lying down was at the parking lot, no way I was that close to one on my bike :)
06:43:56 <LindaGp> Good morning KittyM*, I think it will be. Sorry about your blizzard.
06:44:03 <CraigC> hey Kitty
06:44:25 <KittyM*> :)
06:45:09 <LindaGp> If Bee is nice we may have a day light bee.
06:52:27 <LindaGp> Ah color, sort of
06:57:31 <LindaGp> Looks very steamy out by Bee
07:02:59 <LindaGp> MY?
07:03:19 <LindaGp> NG?
07:04:19 <LindaGp> At about 7:02 I believe NG went off. To far to right for.lion.
07:04:25 <CraigC> I wasn't watching this screen
07:05:16 <LindaGp> Bummer we'll have to watch Gosa.
07:05:32 <LindaGp> I'm entering with question mark
07:05:39 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:24:10 <LindaGp> Looks like bubblers
07:24:28 <CraigC> yeah
07:25:10 <LindaGp> Lots
07:27:06 <CraigC> I think a snowplow ran into the seismo
07:28:29 <LindaGp> Same line on Norris and old faithful seismo
07:37:34 <LindaGp> I can tell the difference between sky and fog, that's a good thing
07:55:37 <LindaGp> OF ie at 07:53
07:57:26 <Sam> Entered
07:57:34 <Sam> With you as the observer Linda :)
07:58:10 <LindaGp> Thx I did too
07:58:54 <LindaGp> No idea if long or short can just about see
07:59:33 <Sam> NPS should put their prediction up soon
08:01:39 <LindaGp> I hope bee waits
08:09:32 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Can't get much lighter than this!
08:09:57 <LindaGp> Lol you're funny
08:10:23 <LindaGp> Love your elements
08:11:26 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Yeah, the periodic table is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get
08:11:49 <LindaGp> 😊
08:14:11 <Kat> Morning all
08:14:23 <LindaGp> Hi kat
08:33:07 <LindaGp> Well this is an easy cam morning πŸ™
08:35:56 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Way too much dihydrogen oxide in the atmosphere
08:37:07 <Bill> Morning
08:38:20 <LindaGp> Hi bill
08:38:49 <LindaGp> How r u today?
08:42:12 <Bill> Pretty good. Thankful we're out of the way of this blizzard.
08:42:19 <Bill> How about you?
08:43:05 <Rice> That Dihydrogen monoxide stuff is nasty!
08:43:28 <LindaGp> I'm good waiting for fog to clear, slow cam morning
08:45:17 <Jimbo Hydrogen> It's pretty corrosive too. Have you seen what it does to rocks?
08:53:52 <LindaGp> Hm i think its supposed to snow later this morning. View may not improve. Time will tell. πŸ˜”
08:56:19 <Bill> We're expecting about an inch here in Mammoth
08:58:03 <ynpvisitor38> Not bad
08:59:17 <Kat> Sorry Linda - view is bad!
09:00:41 <LindaGp1> It's a shame but nothing to do about it. πŸ™„
09:08:15 <ynpvisitor47> m,,,,,,,,,,++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
09:09:10 <LindaGp1> Really?
09:13:45 <ynpvisitor47> sorry that was a CAT attack
09:14:00 <LindaGp1> Lol
09:15:52 <ynpvisitor47> she hopped up and sat down
09:16:30 <CraigC> ban the cat :)
09:16:33 <LindaGp1> That's funny imagine what she could do with the cam
09:16:58 <KittyM> 47, that has happened to me many times :)
09:20:34 <LindaGp1> Wow visibility is nil, I'm not sure I'll see on static either.
09:20:59 <Sam> May just have to wait for NPS to update
09:22:12 <LindaGp1> Yeah, I'll keep staring
09:26:18 <Sam> Static kind of visible now
09:26:30 <Sam> and cam for that matter
09:26:43 <LindaGp1> All of a sudden
09:27:06 <Sam> Fog can move quickly in the basin, that's for sure.
09:27:44 <LindaGp1> It's impressive
09:35:34 <LindaGp1> I think maybe grand is going
09:37:54 <LindaGp1> Static looks nice
09:39:00 <ynpvisitor111> Wow look at that clearing!
09:40:06 <LindaGp1> Grand?
09:46:00 <LindaGp1> Bee steaming heavily
09:53:39 <Katie> Good morning
09:55:45 <LindaGp1> Good morning
09:55:55 <ynpvisitor37> nice bubblers
09:57:29 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Wow, Colorado getting hit hard by storm
09:57:55 <Katie> the "bomb cyclone"
09:57:59 <Katie> armageddon!
09:58:09 <kc (working)> it rained all night too. roads are gonna be bad
10:00:04 <ynpvisitor111> Katie - thanks for your message. Good news, I'll PM you!:)
10:02:30 <LindaGp1> Kevin I assume you took cam?
10:02:52 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Yep. Barely made it
10:03:07 <Eric> Morning all
10:03:43 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Morning
10:03:56 <ynpvisitor111> :) Kevin!
10:03:59 <Katie> g'day
10:04:10 <LindaGp1> No problem would have waited. Bee was really steaming. I think grand went around 9:30 ish I left question mark on it. Visibility was nil most of morning.
10:04:32 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Computer was updating this morning.
10:05:30 <Eric> wow...nice quake this morning
10:05:46 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Amtrak came in to Flagstaff this morning with a big snowstorm. All we have today is wind.
10:06:13 <LindaG> I think NG went off around 7am if anyone wants to look for it on Gosa. I'm going to.
10:07:39 <Eric> 2.8 quake just east of grand prismatic
10:08:26 <Eric> https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/uu60316182/executive#executive
10:08:30 <CraigC> is that the red line on the YNM?
10:08:44 <Eric> Yep and on YFT
10:09:01 <Eric> 7:13 local time
10:10:20 <Eric> Sorry, east of LGB
10:11:05 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Watch for Excelsior eruption >(
10:12:22 <Eric> This is a better map, showing basin in relation: https://www.google.com/maps/place/44%C2%B034'04.8%22N+110%C2%B044'09.6%22W/@44.563267,-110.7920164,5189m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d44.568!4d-110.736
10:12:26 <Eric> bah!
10:12:56 <Eric> better link: https://goo.gl/8PM1SG
10:13:06 <Katie> It completely broke - even c&p doesn't work.
10:13:32 <Katie> Thanks. :)
10:13:35 <Eric> Yes, used goo.gl instead Katie :-D
10:15:25 <LindaG> Opinions. Do you think that plume in back to right of lion is NG? http://imgur.com/gallery/YNlKWKS
10:16:05 <Eric> I don't think there is anyway you can know from that photo
10:16:20 <LindaG> Ok
10:17:00 <LindaG> It was at 7:02 on Gosa
10:17:55 <Eric> You can link directly to the spot in the video by hitting the share button and selecting the checkbox that says start at current time.
10:20:11 <LindaG> Oh I'll try it
10:25:08 <Steph> Haha! Bouncy!
10:25:48 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Is that Daisy?
10:25:49 <Eric> Bison herd
10:26:04 <Eric> Looks like it Kevin
10:26:23 <Eric> Bob, Ralph & George were there too :-D
10:26:24 <LindaG> Ok the video starts on right, as I pan camera it erupts just as I'm panning to left https://youtu.be/nLtMdi56U5g
10:26:56 <LindaG> Darn didnt do it
10:38:46 <Rice> Bison are looking a little skinny, tough winter.
10:47:19 <LindaG> My times are the same, yay
10:54:07 <Eric> riverside
10:54:13 <Eric> or maybe F&M?
10:54:31 <Eric> nope, timing is perfect for riverside
10:59:43 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Bad wind direction
11:05:27 <Eric> I saw the neon museum Monday night Kevin...that was a pretty cool historical view of vegas.
11:10:56 <CraigC> idiot
11:11:21 <Eric> Here come more!
11:12:06 <ynpvisitor89> Darwin award time
11:12:40 <Casey> Hopefully they live and just get an honorable mention
11:16:14 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Duck!
11:17:04 <ynpvisitor89> Bisons in the Mist
11:17:43 <Katie> goobers
11:18:34 <Kat> Nice!
11:18:57 <Kat> :)
11:22:03 <CraigC2> kid threw a snowball at them?
11:22:24 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Not smart
11:22:40 <Steph> Noobcakes!
11:22:43 <ynpvisitor89> I'm really getting nervous here
11:22:43 <Katie> None of this is smart, but that was especially bad
11:22:51 <Kat> WTH! Selfies with the Bison!
11:23:25 <Kat> This is very bad!!
11:23:28 <Katie> Oh. My. Hell.
11:24:25 <Kat> Stupidity at its best!!
11:24:40 <Katie> I called VEC - they already have someone on the way.
11:24:40 <Steph> I thought the roads were closed????
11:24:55 <CraigC2> Katie, thank you!!!!!
11:24:59 <KittyM> OMG
11:25:13 <Kat> Bison walking toward tourons!
11:25:13 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Road closes Friday
11:25:18 <Katie> Well, as it turns out, they already had someone on the way, but...
11:25:25 <ynpvisitor89> Tour operators should be fined or banned
11:25:25 <Steph> Ohhhh. Thank you.
11:25:30 <Eric> I heard them were easy to ride...hop on guys!
11:25:58 <Kat> Thanks Katie
11:27:12 <Eric> Man, that guy can barely walk, if that bison would have become upset...it could have gotten ugly.
11:27:26 <Steph> Poor bison, they've had a hard enough winter, and just want some peace.
11:28:04 <Eric> I think they really want some food...they are nubbing at bare dirt it looks like.
11:32:00 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I think they would like some warm lunch
11:35:31 <ynpvisitor33> Warm mash with a side of lightly sauteed root vegetable and a Napa Valley Merlot?
11:35:53 <Eric> Yumm, now you are making me hungry :-D
11:36:30 <Eric> Bunch of Bison cone walkers up on SC
11:36:54 <Katie> They have a special permit to do so.
11:37:10 <CraigC> anyone having any issues on FB of not being able to post pictures?
11:37:26 <Katie> Groups are glitchy today across the board. FB is working on it.
11:37:30 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Even if they didn't have a permit would you argue with them?
11:38:00 <CraigC> Katie, thanks
11:40:23 <Eric> I cannot even log into FB today, says they are doing maintenace
11:40:57 <LindaG> I'm in havent posted though
11:41:36 <Eric> Yes, it says that maintenance doesn't affect all users, they do it in chunks.
11:42:00 <CraigC> it's Putin
11:44:30 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I think this applies to our last group of tourons: https://jhs-shop.com/products/b-c-print-dip-in-road
12:27:20 <ynpvisitor37> how is castle area looking?
12:27:41 <ynpvisitor37> tks
12:27:43 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Dry
12:27:54 <ynpvisitor37> :)
12:32:20 <Casey> Doggies left?
12:33:27 <ynpvisitor25> not a good wind direction right now
12:39:52 <CraigC> does it look like people are moving like an old b&w movie?
12:45:58 <ynpvisitor25> hard to believe those people do not see they are in the wrong place!
12:48:00 <ynpvisitor25> wow, still not moving
12:48:06 <ynpvisitor89> Wait for it, nothing like a cold wet slap to the face :D
12:48:32 <ynpvisitor25> ha ha, like a BH shower
12:48:37 <CraigC> LMAO
12:48:55 <ynpvisitor25> nice wind shift at the end for the cam
12:49:20 <ynpvisitor89> :-/:p
12:49:43 <ynpvisitor25> a group of late arrivals
12:50:18 <ynpvisitor25> well I'd say a lot of people saw a whole lot of nothing but steam
12:51:06 <Casey> Daisy
12:52:08 <ynpvisitor25> that is a swirling OF
12:52:51 <ynpvisitor25> short Daisy interval
12:54:03 <Casey> I wasn't the only one that saw it was I? Now I'm starting to doubt myself
12:54:04 <ynpvisitor25> I think the wind is a bit stronger than 2mph too
12:54:21 <ynpvisitor25> ??? Daisy definitely happened.
12:54:35 <Casey> Thanks 25
12:54:46 <ynpvisitor25> Kevin posted it, so he saw it too
12:57:08 <Katie> There was a short Daisy interval yesterday, too.
13:01:27 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Daisy has been under 2h30m the last 2 days
13:06:27 <Eric> Still cannot log into facebook :-(
13:06:44 <Eric> Oh well, time for lunch anyway.
13:06:46 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Dave broke it before he left.
13:07:06 <Eric> Doesn't want us to see his shiny white legs on the beach :-P
13:07:31 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Either that or they look like a lobster now.
13:07:39 <Eric> :-)
13:10:25 <Katie> I can get into FB via iPhone app, but not in desktop browser. But since the whole world is having trouble, there isn't much to see there anyway. I just check periodically because there are pending join requests in several groups I admin.
13:10:52 <Katie> (which I can see, but they responding to them just throws an error)
13:11:36 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Gmail was down last night. Seems pretty strange
13:12:06 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> My computer did an update this morning so I wonder if that is it.
13:12:25 <zzzzzzzzzz> Post office tracking has been down
13:12:53 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Just tried FB; message says down for maintenance. Hm
13:12:57 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Hmmmm
13:13:08 <Katie> But the cam is up and we can chat here, so it's just fine.
13:13:23 <zzzzzzzzzz> So who bought boeing stock last week thinking it could not go down any more?
13:13:35 <Jimbo Hydrogen> This wasn't targeted (yet)
13:13:49 <Katie> I'm wondering about authority... again. Still. Whatever. No politics.
13:14:14 <Jimbo Hydrogen> That was a conspiracy theory post. :D:D:D
13:14:41 <Katie> Okay, it's actually FAA. Stupid headline I saw first was misleading.
13:15:34 <zzzzzzzzzz> cnn trying to blame trump?
13:15:53 <Jimbo Hydrogen> "Going down" not a good thing to mention with airlines or cruise ships
13:16:21 <Jimbo Hydrogen> OK for elevators though
13:16:33 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> And submarines.
13:16:58 <Jimbo Hydrogen> :thumbsup:
13:18:05 <zzzzzzzzzz> Do I remember something about the Ethiopian plane being new?
13:18:21 <zzzzzzzzzz> As in recently delivered
13:19:51 <Steph> Welp, gotta go plow/shovel us out of third winter. Spring will be here on Friday, so it's all good. See you guys later! Have a great afternoon!!
13:20:28 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Did I mention my apricot trees are blooming now?
13:21:18 <zzzzzzzzzz> Di I mention th blizzard in south Wyoming and Colorado?
13:21:37 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> 😎
13:22:00 <Katie> "bomb cyclone" I just like saying that.
13:22:16 <Katie> But a friend in Fort Collins said it has been a bust, there.
13:22:35 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I heard there was a tornado in NM yesterday too.
13:22:40 <zzzzzzzzzz> I think they may get it later today and Thursday.
13:23:40 <zzzzzzzzzz> Seems like Cheyenne is ground zero.
13:24:22 <zzzzzzzzzz> I only found out about it when I logged into my bank. They are closing branches because of it.
13:24:28 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Laramie looks chilly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBHo-mQUVb0
13:24:43 <Jimbo Hydrogen> It's snowing and raining in central and eastern Colorado. Fort Collins is west of it now. Center of circulation is between Lamar CO and Dodge City KS.
13:25:00 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Weather radar is impressive
13:25:34 <Jimbo Hydrogen> The tail of the storm is pulling T-storms over east Texas and western Louisiana.
13:26:01 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Have to take a break - be back later this afternoon.
13:26:01 <Katie> It better be impressive or those of us in Montana that up to 40" in two days during a period that didn't get above freezing for 40 days and featured many severe sub-zero temps are just going to roll our eyes.
13:26:33 <zzzzzzzzzz> That is not Laramie, I just saw it on TV this morning. They did not have any rail yards.
13:27:08 <zzzzzzzzzz> Sounds like what we had, and still have, even though it is warming up.
13:27:41 <zzzzzzzzzz> Only one old building collapse that I know of.
13:28:08 <Katie> 2 in Bozeman, 1 in Missoula - and Florence/Carlton's k-2 building was evacuated yesterday
13:28:21 <zzzzzzzzzz> The color detector ignores periods.
13:28:48 <zzzzzzzzzz> We had some panics, mostly gas leaks.
13:30:13 <zzzzzzzzzz> Problem now is the ground is froze and full of melt. Dog is going cabin nuts cause we can not go walk in her favorite spot.
13:31:22 <zzzzzzzzzz> Where they plowed the grass parking lot, it is mud, where they did not plow is dog deep snow.
13:33:19 <zzzzzzzzzz> And that plane was delivered in November. Wonder if they left any tools and junk rattling around in it. Seem like they have that problem now.
13:34:07 <zzzzzzzzzz> With all the planes grounded, Dave may get stuck. Hope he has lots of change for the laundry.
13:35:34 <Katie> What percentage of planes in service are the affected units?
13:35:35 <Betty> Dave is stuck?
13:35:40 <Betty> hi all
13:35:53 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Hi
13:35:55 <zzzzzzzzzz> May
13:36:26 <zzzzzzzzzz> Kevin, that is a question you could answer.
13:36:32 <Katie> We are talking about the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max 8, Betty.
13:36:33 <zzzzzzzzzz> not is
13:36:42 <zzzzzzzzzz> nad 9
13:37:02 <Katie> and Max 9
13:37:32 <Betty> oh, yes. bad thing
13:37:40 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I think the Max 8 is a newer version so it shouldn't be a lot of them. Dave would be on a bigger plane for Hawaii.
13:37:55 <zzzzzzzzzz> 371
13:38:09 <Betty> hi Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅, Katie, zzzzzzzzzz,
13:38:28 <Katie> ha ha - it's a common enough google search that it's now a suggested/autofill search
13:38:56 <Betty> ouch ;-)
13:41:50 <Katie> The Max 8 & 9 account for about 15,000 daily flights among Southwest, American and United Airlines, if I'm reading a usatoday article right. That's a lot of flights!
13:43:25 <Katie> Wait! There are two sets of numbers. 250 flights daily. Still a lot, but a number that makes sense.
13:43:39 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> More than I would have expected. These are more or less commuter planes that do short runs so they may have 5 to 10 flights for just one plane per day.
13:43:53 <Katie> That's just those 3 airlines, not Air Canada and others that use them.
13:45:00 <Katie> That's also just the Max 9's, so...
13:45:04 <Katie> A lot!
13:45:17 <zzzzzzzzzz> a search says 387 are registered world wide.
13:46:52 <Katie> So, figure 2-3 flights per day, per plane... But many were already out of service before today. But still, that's a huge affect on traffic.
13:47:41 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> The thing that bothers me is the flight path for McCarran runway 27 goes right over my house.
13:52:44 <ynpvisitor37> castle
13:52:45 <Betty> Castle
13:53:46 <zzzzzzzzzz> It looks like while Boeing touts the plane as the best selling, they have not delivered many compared to reported sales of around 5000.
13:54:05 <Betty> and looks like TiltΒ΄s Baby
13:54:14 <zzzzzzzzzz> It looks like they are a very small % of airlines available planes.
13:54:56 <zzzzzzzzzz> But I refuse to fly so no impact for me.
13:56:01 <Katie> Flying to Guatemala next month - but Delta - and Delta is not among the airlines flying the Maxes.
13:56:54 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I don't like commercial but I did spend a lot of time in the Governor's plane while at NDOT. That was fun because I got the copilot's seat a lot.
13:57:51 <Time for BH> The governor was too good to fly commercial?
14:01:24 <Time for BH> Reminds me of this song for some reason. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhjuKNOLSNM
14:01:56 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Well the plane belonged to the Department of Transportation but all State employees used it.
14:02:02 <Time for BH> Watch for bee' I go to burn lunch
14:03:01 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> It worked good since it could land in Cartoon City and cut about 4 hours off the commute per employee.
14:04:17 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> It could also go to places that did not have air service.
14:06:48 <Betty> Kevin, pmd you
14:08:51 <Time for BH> Odd because back then you could get a flight in Nevada for like 50 bucks, coupons for free food, and $20 in tokens.
14:10:45 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Not a lot of planes going to Tonopah, Elko, Winemucca, Ely, etc.
14:11:54 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> It was also used in aerial survey and photography so it had more uses than just transportation.
14:17:20 <Betty> Kevin, I think the last link I sent has the pic you are looking for
14:18:05 <Time for BH> Too bad they did not have a train, you could have rode in the cab and played fireman!
14:24:26 <LindaG> Bee hasn't gone yet? Yay
14:24:59 <Betty> hi LindaG, it waited for you
14:25:00 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> They do have some trains and I did get some cab rides.
14:26:03 <LindaG> Hi Betty, Im flattered. 🌝
14:31:00 <ynpvisitor14> Is Eric going to fix the chat time?
14:31:20 <Katie> He already did - shift refresh
14:31:26 <LindaG> Mine is fixed. Betty is yours fixed?
14:32:31 <ynpvisitor112> Mine is still the wrong time even after refresh
14:33:18 <ynpvisitor112> Odd
14:33:22 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Mine say 1433
14:34:43 <Sam> Must be windy
14:35:47 <Betty> mine is still wrong
14:36:23 <Betty> some more pics on a seperate link, Kevin
14:36:40 <LindaG> Betty, huh not sure why mine updated, it just all of an sudden changed on its own
14:37:33 <Betty> itΒ΄s on both FF and IE
14:38:40 <Sam> Of taking its time
14:39:32 <Betty> wow thunderstorm here
14:40:06 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Those can get noisy.
14:40:11 <ynpvisitor37> of
14:40:34 <Sam> I think you mean fluffy
14:40:50 <Sam> :)
14:40:54 <LindaG> Just missing us
14:41:14 <Betty> you saw that big spike on all seismos at around 0713?
14:41:27 <Betty> EQ?
14:41:32 <LindaG> Yeah what was it?
14:41:40 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> EQ by Midway Basin
14:41:56 <LindaG> Oh close
14:41:57 <Betty> good shake
14:42:04 <Sam> 2
14:42:09 <Sam> 2.8*
14:42:19 <Betty> thx
14:42:42 <Betty> Excelsior waking up?
14:42:42 <Sam> YNP doing YNP things :)
14:42:48 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I have felt several quakes in the cabins.
14:43:03 <Sam> Kevin, are you in the park?
14:43:13 <Betty> big LOL
14:43:28 <Betty> this time of year? hahahaha
14:43:30 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Not now
14:43:46 <ynpvisitor37> does the park have a desert?
14:43:50 <Sam> Got it
14:44:10 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Allergic to snow.
14:44:56 <LindaG> Haaaa-chewwww
14:45:09 <Betty> :-D
14:45:17 <Time for BH> Bison and geyser thumps don't count.
14:45:40 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Or snoring from the next cabin.
14:46:00 <Time for BH> Dave stays next to you?
14:46:35 <Time for BH> Can we still pick on dave when he is not here?
14:46:45 <Betty> sure
14:46:45 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> He is fair game.
14:47:00 <Eric> Especially when he is not here :-P
14:47:07 <Betty> he can read chat history
14:47:19 <Betty> hi Eric
14:47:51 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Did you see the right turn on red signal Betty?
14:48:09 <Time for BH> Sorry, reminded me of this classic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPRC5qWPIHA
14:48:31 <Betty> really? no Kevin
14:49:25 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I don't think it is real, but it is funny. http://www.stellwerke.de/kabinett/zs10.html
14:49:37 <Time for BH> This signal? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZjb29a1JzY
14:50:44 <Eric> Hi Betty
14:51:08 <Time for BH> Well if it is a traffic signal, I can see a right turn on red. Would be hard for a train.
14:51:42 <Betty> Kevin, makes sense if you read explanation. ItΒ΄s real and valid
14:51:52 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I think we call those "Diverging right"
14:52:49 <Time for BH> Could not read it, all greek to me.
14:53:08 <Betty> I found it easy to read
14:53:25 <Time for BH> You are Greek?
14:53:45 <ynpvisitor37> :)
14:53:55 <LindaG> Who turned BH off?
14:53:59 <Betty> IΒ΄m Aphrodite
14:54:10 <Katie> Dave, of course
14:54:21 <Time for BH> Dave, it is his turn
14:54:30 <Betty> BH is on Hawaii vacation
14:54:43 <LindaG> Ah of course 😊
14:54:44 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> You do know how to tell if a train went by recently don't you?
14:55:21 <LindaG> How?
14:55:27 <Eric> look for it's tracks?
14:55:36 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> You can still see it's tracks.
14:55:43 <LindaG> 😝
14:56:21 <Time for BH> I thought you looked for kids picking up flattened pennies.
14:56:29 <Time for BH> Do kids still do that?
14:56:56 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Most likely but NOT a good idea.
14:57:22 <LindaG> I couldnt even find a train if I wanted to
14:57:41 <Time for BH> Like you never put a penny on the tracks
14:57:52 <Betty> it is a blocking signal on dividing ways. Train has to stop, track switch has to be made and train is allowed to use the right track in slow pace
14:58:26 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> That makes sense.
14:59:54 <kc (working)> why is it a bad idea KL, besides the fact its prob illegal
15:00:11 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I have a lot of small trains in my depot.
15:01:42 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Train does not always flatten coins. Sometime it spits them out at great speed. And it is illegal. Tracks are private property and you can be cited for trespassing.
15:03:33 <Time for BH> That is half the fun.
15:03:35 <Eric> grand?
15:03:45 <Betty> yay
15:04:26 <LindaG> Wow look at wind by grand
15:04:45 <Eric> I assume grand...but I sure cannot see any water :-P
15:04:52 <Eric> ohh, there it is
15:05:09 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Ask these girls how much fun they had playing on the train tracks. https://www.up.com/aboutup/community/inside_track/selfie-tragedy-12-7-2016.htm
15:05:18 <LindaG> Yay spikes
15:05:21 <Jimbo Hydrogen> Still hydrogen
15:05:47 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Looks funny with this winds direction.
15:06:13 <Jimbo Hydrogen> This is an unusual state
15:06:14 <kc (working)> stand by me taught me all I need to know
15:06:57 <kc (working)> but I admit to smearing more than a few lincoln faces in my time
15:07:40 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Same here. My favorite was duplex nails. Made a great sword.
15:07:44 <ynpvisitor43> Grand
15:08:46 <Betty> sad article Kevin
15:10:41 <ynpvisitor37> daisy soon
15:12:23 <CraigC> Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅, I think about that every time I drive past that section on my way to Moab
15:12:27 <Time for BH> Cannot fix stupid.
15:13:23 <Time for BH> I have never had a firework explode in my hand either. But I hear about someones cousin all the time.
15:13:35 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Can't fix stupid. Can fix uninformed. That is why I was a volunteer for Operation Lifesaver until my ears died.
15:13:47 <ynpvisitor87> hey Eric. i"m on Safari and my chat clock still shows the old time
15:15:19 <ynpvisitor37> 1b
15:16:47 <Time for BH> We need a "Operation Lifesaver" for pedestrians and bicyclists. Most of the ones around here don't seem to understand cars are bigger then they are.
15:17:14 <ynpvisitor37> all done
15:17:17 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Same here
15:17:38 <Time for BH> Seems like someone gets flattened by light rail in portland every now and then.
15:17:58 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Thought I had Daisy in the picture
15:18:10 <Time for BH> I always found walking on tracks uncomfortable.
15:18:24 <LindaG> Daisy
15:18:49 <Time for BH> Well, no be for me. enjoy it will go soon.
15:19:40 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> OF is trying to hide it.
15:21:31 <Eric> 87, you either can try force refreshing the page by holding down the shift key while clicking refresh or wait a few days and it should just refresh on its own.
15:22:50 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Check the latest Daisy time. Amazing how consistent they are.
15:25:02 <LindaG> That is impressive
15:25:36 <LindaG> More consistent than OF
15:26:59 <ynpvisitor37> are those short intervals a winter time thing?
15:27:42 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I don't think so. We will have to wait and see.
15:28:43 <LindaG> Bubblers
15:31:14 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Betty, I looked at the weights in you email and it had exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.
15:32:31 <ynpvisitor37> lc
15:32:56 <Betty> great
15:33:26 <Betty> those are almost gone on every track I know of
15:34:14 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> They were always so fun to watch.
15:34:43 <Katie> Out to lunch. That should trigger BH for yez
15:34:50 <ynpvisitor4> lc ie
15:35:30 <LindaG> Katie, Thanks
15:36:26 <LindaG> Pesky OF

16:15:48 <Eric> It was great Graham...played lots of board games and sucked up a ton of vitamin D :-D
16:16:01 <Eric> Not sure we will see BH though :-P
16:16:07 <Eric> Hi Lori
16:16:12 <Lori S> Hi Eric
16:16:44 <LindaG> Anybody send text?
16:17:10 <GO GOGGLE> is that Lion too?
16:17:27 <GO GOGGLE> no, by the time we figured it was BH itbwas 2min in and OF interfering
16:17:29 <Lori S> didn't get one, just logged on at a good time
16:17:42 <LindaG> I didnt either
16:17:50 <LindaG> Should I send text?
16:17:59 <GO GOGGLE> no
16:18:04 <LindaG> Ok
16:18:22 <GO GOGGLE> its done now
16:18:33 <Eric> wow...that was bad viewing :-(
16:18:55 <LindaG> Ohmok imthought itmwas bhi, oh well
16:19:07 <LindaG> Wow, thought it was bhi
16:19:15 <Eric> Did Dave loan you his keyboard while he was vacationing?
16:19:26 <Lori S> hey, my webcam is actually working at work so it's a great view
16:19:33 <LindaG> That was particularly bad lol
16:19:38 <Eric> :thumbsup::thumbsup:
16:19:43 <GO GOGGLE> all we saw was a steam ball at the start, couldnt tell if it was Lion or Bee because it was obscured bu OF too
16:19:56 <GO GOGGLE> if there was an indicator it didnt last long
16:20:15 <LindaG> OF is bad today
16:20:54 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Say thanks to πŸ“
16:21:17 <LindaG> Cluckity cluck cluck

16:22:47 <LindaG> Hmmm i think times on BH need to be reversed
16:23:03 <GO GOGGLE> nope
16:23:19 <GO GOGGLE> couldnt see the indi until we were well into bee
16:23:25 <Lori S> bh indicated the indicator
16:23:44 <GO GOGGLE> probably although maybe indi just beat it
16:23:55 <Eric> bhi marked ie, bh ns
16:24:17 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
16:24:29 <GO GOGGLE> it wasnt a no-indi but maybe a late indi
16:25:11 <Eric> It's good, those were Graham's observations, you shouldn't guess that something happened because it usually happens that way :-) Log it as you see it.
16:25:32 <LindaG> Got it
16:25:33 <Lori S> how did i decide to log on right at 16:14? that's what i want to know
16:25:59 <Eric> It's you G-sense Lori :-P
16:26:38 <GO GOGGLE> denver airport access road closed, nice. hope you are staying home kcmule
16:27:21 <Lori S> It's like when I woke up in the middle of the night last summer for no apparent reason, looked at the YNM, and SPLAT theer it was
16:28:14 <Lori S> freaked me out every time LOL
16:30:31 <Lori S> Eric...I am snacking on cauliflower instead of chips :)
16:31:02 <Eric> Nice....You go girl!
16:32:03 <Eric> fresh veggies and meat, plus a lot of walking has knocked almost 60 pounds off my weight!
16:32:22 <Lori S> How tall does cauliflower erupt? didn't know there was one
16:32:40 <Lori S> I'm down 5. :)
16:33:21 <Eric> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azA2ksi4mFQ
16:33:35 <Eric> Hey, that is awesome!
16:33:36 <Lori S> yogurt, fresh fruit, and granola has replaced eggs and buttered toast in the morning
16:34:33 <GO GOGGLE> nowadays cauliflower might boil but in the past its done big bursts, not sure the height
16:35:24 <GO GOGGLE> i just did my taxes .. i need alcohol now
16:35:45 <Eric> uggg, taxes sucked for me this year :-(
16:36:02 <GO GOGGLE> no refund this year
16:36:55 <Eric> I have always claimed zero dependents so maximum taxes where withheld. It was close this year :-|
16:38:25 <GO GOGGLE> there is no maximum .... send them more
16:38:37 <Lori S> Thx for the link. My kind of geyser. :)
16:39:10 <Eric> hmmm, cam died on me :-(
16:39:26 <Lori S> me too...circling
16:39:45 <Eric> Looks like outage at source
16:39:52 <Eric> I bet controls are down too
16:40:29 <Lori S> cam has joined facebook today
16:40:42 <ynpvisitor91> Circling here too
16:50:45 <GO GOGGLE> i have no control
16:50:49 <GO GOGGLE> that was a short shift
16:51:55 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Dave broke it.
16:55:18 <Lori S> anyone here drink red wines?
16:57:15 <Lori S> just trying to track down a malbec I had last summer that was left behind by a guest
16:58:16 <Katie> My sister-in-law and brother-in-law drink a lot of malbec. I avoid red wine due to migraine trigger.
17:00:55 <Lori S> i only have a bottle when camping and this one was spectacular and i can't find the label anywhere locally
17:01:10 <Lori S> sorry about the migraines
17:01:27 <Katie> Where is it made?
17:02:07 <Lori S> Argentina. Had a split down the middle of the label. that's all i recall
17:07:55 <Lori S> found it online. if only I had looked at the year. Septima
17:08:35 <Katie> I was googling labels and saw that one and was going to ask if that was it.
17:08:48 <Lori S> lots of awards in 2016 so i bet that was it
17:09:10 <Katie> Now I'll have to ask the inlaws if they have had that one.
17:09:48 <Lori S> would love to hear what they say if they did. it was SMOOTH and yummy
17:09:53 <Katie> Or maybe just get them a bottle for some occasion or another...
17:10:15 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
17:10:42 <Lori S> something tells me it was a pricey bottle but maybe not
17:11:22 <Lori S> they left it as part of the tip for our housecleaners and they don't drink wine
17:12:52 <GO GOGGLE> best tip ever :)
17:13:43 <Katie> We have left bottles from local distilleries for our casino hostess in Las Vegas. They can't take cash tips, but may receive gifts. She loved the Huckleberry Cream Liquor from Willies Distillery in Ennis.
17:14:01 <Katie> But we did check that she drank AND that that was an allowed gift.
17:14:34 <GO GOGGLE> am i allowed to drink and drive?
17:15:02 <Katie> Oddly, she said it reminded her of a fruit liquor from Haiti (where she grew up) - reminded her in a good way
17:16:00 <Lori S> Go Goggle, bumper cars only
17:16:18 <Eric> or webcams :-P
17:16:18 <Lori S> and that's cool, katie
17:16:35 <GO GOGGLE> maybe i should just shake the cam up and down
17:16:36 <Lori S> good one Erci
17:16:42 <Lori S> Eric
17:16:49 <Lori S> I got the Lindas!
17:17:00 <Eric> riverside
17:17:15 <Katie> For housekeeping, we leave cold hard cash
17:17:16 <Lori S> but seriously, i still have no cam
17:17:16 <Eric> Guess I should log my last riverside I called :-P
17:17:21 <GO GOGGLE> i was thinking that too eric
17:17:49 <GO GOGGLE> i see the time is right now :)
17:18:13 <Lori S> refreshed. there it is
17:19:00 <Lori S> Katie, we have vacation rentlas so folks leave food and alcohol all the time that is unopened. plus the cold hard cash.
17:19:36 <Lori S> one family comes every year for Christmas and brings a gingerbread house for each one
17:20:25 <Eric> Alright...riversides are now updated :-P
17:22:57 <Lori S> $40.99 for a 2015
17:23:44 <Lori S> plus $25 shipping...eek
17:24:04 <Katie> We have left food at vacation rentals. Sometimes planned, and sometimes unplanned. We left a LOT at my uncle's condo in Mexico. We had a miscommunication at the butcher counter concerning how much chorizo we actually wanted.
17:24:09 <Katie> And we simply over-bought on cheeses
17:24:51 <GO GOGGLE> i will take a glass of that Lori
17:25:01 <Lori S> you buying?
17:25:17 <GO GOGGLE> haha no ... you have the bottle, right?
17:25:50 <Eric> I love fresh made chorizo :-D
17:25:54 <Lori S> no, after i emptied the whole bottle in one evening, i tossed it without thinking
17:26:43 <Lori S> i did just get some birthday cash... hmmm
17:26:46 <Katie> That was easily the best chorizo I had ever had!
17:27:20 <GO GOGGLE> happy Birthday!
17:29:21 <Lori S> Thanks. Steamboat erupted that morning so it WAS a happy day.
17:30:20 <GO GOGGLE> 6 days will put it at St Patricks Day
17:30:48 <Lori S> Luck o the irish we hope
17:30:59 <GO GOGGLE> and in 2 days we hit the 1y anniversary of the start of the chaos
17:31:10 <Lori S> for $179 I can get the bottle shipped overnight. :D
17:31:33 <GO GOGGLE> No No No
17:32:08 <GO GOGGLE> go the local store and buy a 6 pack of $30 bottles
17:32:28 <Lori S> Yeah, I was balking at the $25. Chaos is good if you are into fractals.
17:32:54 <GO GOGGLE> i drink Merlot and can be very happy with the $30 bottles ... or theres a really nice Meritage I can get for tha ttoo
17:33:30 <GO GOGGLE> from my favorite VA winery
17:33:56 <Lori S> I'm usually a pinot noir kind of gal. This was my first malbec.
17:34:38 <Lori S> 6 pack of $30 bottles... oh my
17:35:01 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> I am happy with a 59 cent bottle of Diet Mt Dew.
17:35:27 <Lori S> Idaho ha a good winery near the bruno sand dunes
17:36:15 <Lori S> or at least they did in the 90's :p
17:37:22 <Lori S> Kevin, I am good with fresh brewed Lipton iced tea from a cheap tea bag
17:41:35 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> :)
17:42:51 <ynpvisitor25> Daisy
17:43:23 <ynpvisitor25> North winds don't delay it.
17:43:53 <Eric> I only enjoy fine apple wines :-P
17:43:56 <Sam> Winds have been blowing of steam all over
17:44:11 <Lori S> Boone Farm?
17:44:14 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Set your watch on Daisy today.
17:44:29 <Eric> Nailed it Lori :-D
17:44:34 <ynpvisitor25> last 15 all under 2 hr 30 m
17:44:58 <Lori S> Actually, my first alcohol ever was TJ Swan apple wine. :D
17:45:08 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Utah does have a good Apple Beer.
17:45:27 <ynpvisitor25> real beer? or near beer?
17:46:16 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> No beer. Just the name. But it is good. Spiced carbonated apple juice.
17:46:59 <Lori S> Go Goggle, we need you to stand with one foot in the air, look at your toe, hands at your sides... :p
17:47:36 <GO GOGGLE> you dont like the way i am shaking the cam up and down slowly?
17:48:04 <Lori S> feels like I'm on a boat
17:48:29 <ynpvisitor25> you are kind of
17:49:06 <ynpvisitor25> our last spring with this awesome view

17:49:58 <Lori S> good point 25 on the view
