04:57:43 <Lori S> Hi guys. Anyone else see that spike on Tantalus Creek absent a siesmo signature?
04:57:51 <LindaG> Yay
04:58:03 <CraigC> Lori S, we were talking about it yesterday here
04:58:10 <ynpvisitor61> yes I was watching when the cam moved off of it
04:58:50 <ynpvisitor61> Yes no idea what erupted in norris
04:59:01 <Lori S> and the conclusion?
04:59:50 <CraigC> Mueller reported that there was insufficient evidence to conclude anything
04:59:52 <ynpvisitor61> Pork chop? Echinus?
05:00:24 <LindaG> CraigC, seriously deficient
05:00:24 <CraigC> loggers are down to substantiate anything else
05:00:42 <Lori S> I will look at chat history once I get to work.
05:00:43 <ynpvisitor8> Discharge from a meltwaterpool suffering an ice dam brake?
05:01:26 <CraigC> Lori S, I doubt you'll find anything in the chat that will be worth reading other than people wondering
05:02:38 <Lori S> haha. ok. my phone is not webcam chat friendly is all
05:02:57 <LindaG> Kat good morning!
05:03:25 <ynpvisitor68> have you tried the Mobile Chat Page Lori?

05:16:51 <Sam> So I know I'm totally late, but do we know why the Norris loggers are down?
05:17:12 <Kat> I can go with that!
05:18:18 <Kat> My brain hurts this morning - did taxes yesterday! Retiring ain't cheap!! :-/
05:19:20 <CraigC> Sam, they have been down several days, I noted it 2 or 3 days ago.
05:20:19 <CraigC> Kat, this year I got WAY more back than ever in my life. But I had 4 rollovers into my 401k
05:21:26 <Kat> I got more Federal back too - but the state of VA rips! Thank goodness for rollovers
05:21:29 <ynpvisitor1> Wow....#100 last night and now, I'm number 1!
05:22:03 <CraigC> might be a good time to hit Vegas
05:22:24 <ynpvisitor61> #1 enjoy it while you can :)
05:22:51 <ynpvisitor1> SB doesn't think I'm #1
05:23:25 <CraigC> Dave
05:23:32 <Sam> Good morning Dave!
05:23:38 <ynpvisitor61> Steamboat thinks no one is #1
05:23:49 <Rich> hi Dave from B
05:24:00 <Sam> Steamboat thinks Steamboat is #1
05:24:13 <Dave from B™> Morning rich! It has been a LONG time
05:24:31 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone

05:25:44 <Dave from B™> I'm afriad not CraigC and now I still have 2 tax returns to get done:(
05:26:46 <Dave from B™> Hey, for everyone here.....Rich is the creator of the map used from this camera spot
05:27:11 <Dave from B™> http://donsplace.orgfree.com/ofcc2/images/UGBpan02as_labeled.jpg
05:27:32 <Dave from B™> Rich, I hope 2019 has been a better year than last year for you
05:27:42 <Rich> with help from here, g
05:27:44 <Sam> Oh really?! That's awesome - thank you for such a detailed map!
05:27:54 <Kat> The map has been so helpful to me! Thanks Rich
05:28:12 <Sam> It's helped me a lot in the past few months
05:28:44 <CraigC> Rich, thanks, I have used it a LOT
05:29:50 <Rich> In seattle at sisters, shortly after settling ing a tornado put down across the Sound, not my doing, bg
05:30:25 <Sam> A tornado in Seattle??
05:31:00 <ynpvisitor61> sprinkler
05:31:06 <CraigC> must mean the Yellowstone volcano is about to erupt
05:31:23 <Sam> Yes of course Craig :)
05:31:49 <CraigC> can someone text Mary
05:31:52 <Sam> And the government is censoring data with the Norris loggers being down too
05:32:36 <ynpvisitor61> They are also flatlining the YNM seismo :)
05:32:47 <Dave from B™> Well, just know you were in our prayers, Rich
05:32:48 <CraigC> LOL
05:32:56 <Rich> back in time I was working on trying to id Sawmill/Grand area, found out I did known enough about the area from camera angle.
05:33:29 <Dave from B™> Rich, have you heard that the camera is going to move at some point this year?
05:34:03 <Rich> tnaks, everything gone, but friends and neighbor ok.
05:34:26 <ynpvisitor61> April 10th If all the little duckies get in a row
05:36:06 <Rich> i havent heard snything, meant that from my mind not familiar enough with location. Need to see morev
05:36:26 <Sam> 61, I thought it was the 18th?
05:36:28 <Rich> more eruption to pin point.
05:37:28 <Dave from B™> I hope the move goes better on the second try
05:38:13 <ynpvisitor83> I hope they continue to have issues and it cannot move
05:38:44 <ynpvisitor61> Pretty sure the 10th Sam, but my eyes are old 0 could be 8
05:39:06 <CraigC> ynpvisitor83, lol, me too
05:39:24 <Kat> The 10th is what we were told.
05:39:44 <Sam> Ok, I'm just making things up! :)
05:39:55 <ynpvisitor61> tks Kat
05:40:10 <Sam> Earlier the better anyway
05:40:25 <ynpvisitor83> Why is that?
05:40:34 <ynpvisitor61> bison
05:41:48 <ynpvisitor61> good view
05:41:57 <Sam> The new cam view shouldn't have as many obstructions. Many times, we can't view other geysers because of OF steam
05:42:13 <Sam> The doggies are back, yay
05:42:53 <ynpvisitor83> Just wait Sam, soon you will only see OF
05:43:17 <Sam> What do you mean
05:43:19 <Sam> ?
05:43:36 <Rich> tech question, any screen capture apps for Android
05:43:57 <ynpvisitor61> The new view in wide will show OF and all of geyser hill
05:44:34 <Sam> Yes, what 61 said. Thank you.
05:44:47 <ynpvisitor83> You’ll see
05:46:05 <ynpvisitor61> Rich AZ Screen recorder
05:46:44 <Rich> thank you 61
05:46:46 <ynpvisitor61> there are others als
05:46:55 <ynpvisitor61> also*
05:47:32 <ynpvisitor34> Oh bison
05:47:57 <Sam> They've quite liked this area as of late
05:48:00 <Sam> Hi Linda
05:48:15 <LindaG> Hi sam
05:48:42 <LindaG> LC ie
05:49:04 <LindaG> Hehe nice view
05:49:42 <Kat> Marching up basin!
05:51:34 <ynpvisitor31> They look nice against the white
05:52:03 <Sam> Hut two, hut two!
05:52:14 <Kat> :)
05:54:07 <Kat> They'll be back!
05:54:54 <Rich> lr rl, lrrl, lrrl,
05:56:49 <Rich> thanks all, food calls to me,g
05:56:59 <Rich> bye
05:57:02 <LindaGt> Last week at sunset they all came out of the basin and walked off to the right. About 20 minutes later they all came running through and went down basin again. Makes you wonder.
05:57:08 <CraigC> cya Rich
05:57:33 <CraigC> LindaGt, maybe there was a sasquatch off to the right
05:57:43 <Sam> Or they wanted more food
05:58:02 <LindaGt> Maybe, we need two cams 😊
06:00:52 <Kat> Linda, you gonna be operating all day on the 2nd one?? LOL
06:01:22 <Kat> Told ya! A stray?
06:02:11 <LindaGt> Kat, 😊 wouldn't that be fun, we each get one
06:02:27 <Kat> HAha!
06:02:55 <LindaGt> Bubblers by the way
06:03:15 <Kat> Oh yeah...
06:05:51 <Kat> Another straggler...
06:09:44 <Sam> He does what he wants
06:10:21 <Sam> Actually, multiple stragglers
06:10:28 <LindaGt> That snow is pretty high if bison can almost hide behind it
06:10:44 <CraigC> OF
06:10:46 <Sam> OF
06:10:58 <LindaGt> Does that make a herd?
06:11:24 <Sam> Fluffy :)
06:11:32 <Kat> Could..
06:11:35 <LindaGt> OF ie
06:11:43 <CraigC> what is the feature shooting out steam just to the right of OF>
06:12:20 <Sam> Aurum maybe?
06:12:46 <CraigC> the one with steam going left at an angle
06:12:58 <Ryan> Theres a steam vent near OF's cone that increases vigor with OF
06:13:08 <Sam> Aurum and Giantess are back there
06:13:47 <Sam> Looked to be a long
06:14:02 <LindaGt> And your not allowed to call it baby OF or mini me OF 😊
06:14:04 <Ryan> I think Craig is referring to the steam vent on Old Faithful's cone.
06:14:21 <LindaGt> Yesbindomtoo
06:14:26 <CraigC> it just slowed down
06:14:37 <LindaGt> Yikes, yes I do too
06:14:47 <Kat> LOL
06:15:05 <CraigC> guess I haven;t noticed that angled steam shooting like that before
06:15:17 <Kat> I love the typos here! :)
06:15:38 <LindaGt> I've become famous for them lol
06:16:29 <Dave from B™> I gave you guys one job this weekend and you failed to produce squiggly lines!:)
06:16:47 <LindaGt> Bee steaming
06:17:03 <LindaGt> Lc ie

06:18:19 <ynpvisitor61> Dave, You should know it is hard to find good help :)
06:20:09 <LindaGt> I've been busy entering little cub, leaves no time for anything else. Lol

06:22:21 <ynpvisitor61> Next Daisy 0915--0930 Guaranteed!!
06:23:14 <J. Darmstadtium> I think Betty should tell us how to say it correctly once!
06:24:30 <ynpvisitor61> Linda !! a whole sentence no typos, are you ok ?
06:24:54 <CraigC> haha
06:26:20 <Kat> :)
06:28:31 <Kat> Going for breakfast!
06:28:46 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor61, I've been feeling a little feverish 😉 oh did it again
06:29:34 <Kat> Snow...
06:29:52 <LindaGt> Kat, oh I thought you were going for breakfast

06:33:40 <ynpvisitor61> soon keep watching
06:33:47 <Dave from B™> Notice how Joe (61) is hiding so I won't pick on him today:)
06:34:17 <ynpvisitor61> You found me!! :)
06:35:06 <Kat> Dave - you have no idea how many things you were blamed for while you were away! :)
06:35:22 <LindaGt> 😆
06:35:37 <Dave from B™> I check in incognito on my phone from time to time. I'm well aware that I'm the #1 scapegoat:)
06:35:47 <Joe> yes I blamed Dave for everything
06:35:53 <Kat> :p
06:36:09 <LindaGt> Global warming, Mueller, snow, no giant, no SB the list goes on
06:36:40 <Kat> :lol:
06:37:53 <Joe> Is everyone going to stand in the street and scream again :)
06:38:21 <LindaGt> Joe, ?
06:39:12 <LindaGt> Blue sky
06:39:31 <Joe> That is what the (snowflakes) did when he who must not be named was elected
06:40:22 <CraigC> James Harding?
06:40:34 <Joe> yes:)
06:40:40 <CraigC> :)
06:42:19 <LindaGt> 'He who must not be named', i like it hehe
06:43:48 <Ryan> I thought Voldemort killed hundreds and used the Imperius Curse on the prime minister for power? I didnt know he got elected.
06:43:48 <LindaGt> Get ready LC is comin
06:44:41 <Joe> Ryan I was trying to keep Eric from banning me

06:52:43 <LindaGt> BBl
06:52:45 <Joe> sprinkler
06:57:54 <Katie> good morning
07:00:44 <Kat> My screen keeps freezing - anyone else?
07:01:32 <Kat> Morning Katie!
07:01:41 <Kevin L™🌵> mine is working like normal too. Freezing.
07:03:20 <ynpvisitor113> Mine will go in phases. It'll be fine for a few hours, but then get jumpy. Started on Saturday.
07:19:52 <Casey> Morning
07:20:20 <Kat> Morning
07:21:05 <Joe> Hi Casey, i hope grand will not be this early
07:21:33 <Casey> I'm really putting my powers to the test now.
07:21:57 <Joe> :)
07:22:06 <Dave from B™> Use your power on SB, please
07:23:02 <Casey> Hi Dave. Yeah. Maybe I get one geyser a week. If so, Steamboat is going to set a record for eruptions in a week.
07:25:29 <Dave from B™> You know you're old when 2 music acts are announced are coming to town and I don't have a clue who they are
07:29:39 <Dave from B™> I have a serious question for those of you that are retired. How did you know it was time to retire?
07:31:37 <Joe> I did not know for sure, a package was offered and was too good to turn down so I took it
07:32:11 <Kat> Oh, trust me one day you will just know! Had been planning on working another year - and it hit me - WHY? What would I gain.
07:32:35 <Joe> I missed my Daisy prediction...Oh the shame!
07:33:22 <Kat> :) Joe
07:34:43 <Joe> Dave I also had other plans that a problem with my heart changed for me one month after I retired
07:35:06 <Kevin L™🌵> I had a tough time getting around the construction sites Dave. That is an accident waiting to happen.
07:35:57 <Katie> Joe, I hope your can realize those plans!
07:36:55 <CraigC> I was also took a cash incentive to retire early... no regrets so far
07:37:04 <Dave from B™> Thanks everyone. I'm working a lot slower (mentally) at work and my time to retire (slow down even more) is getting closer
07:38:01 <Kat> I put in 40 years in healthcare, taking care of others much of the time. 20 of those years I did it with MS. It's my turn now to take care of me and do what I want. Don't keep your dreams waiting!
07:38:04 <Katie> For me, it's going to be as soon as it is financially feasible. I want to retire young enough to travel.
07:38:09 <Kevin L™🌵> I would have gone another 2 years had I known then what I know now but I didn't know what the legislature was going to do.
07:38:51 <CraigC> I would have gone sooner if I could have. :)
07:39:08 <Joe> Katie, that was 20 years ago, I was going to workcamp in the National Parks, and have not been able to achieve that dream since.
07:39:12 <Dave from B™> As I've mentioned before 10 years of big house pmts is clouding my vision
07:39:37 <Casey> My parents are going through that same issue, Kevin. They are worried one of them may have to go back to work.
07:39:39 <Kevin L™🌵> I really liked my job but hated the politics and meetings.
07:40:29 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, same for the most part, I liked taking delinquents out doing fun stuff, hiking and biking, but the paperwork and meetings and trainings were tiresome
07:41:05 <Katie> Sorry, Joe. that's a dream I share...
07:41:42 <Casey> Wow, Craig, I had no idea what you did. I'm sure there were a lot of difficulties as well, but that sounds like a valuable job.
07:42:10 <Joe> I loved my job, but a decent package with social security makeup and decent Kplan savings in the bank made it hard to turn down, plus the plans that ihad
07:42:32 <Joe> Daisy
07:42:32 <Casey> Daisy?
07:42:41 <Kevin L™🌵> The one nice thing is the last 5 years before I retired I was pretty much the senior person in the entire district so I knew the answers to about everything. Pretty much the got to man so nobody messed with me.
07:43:15 <Ryan> Has LS been ie? seeing a lot of steam from there
07:43:27 <Casey> That's exactly why I don't mess with you on here too.
07:43:35 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
07:44:25 <Casey> LS? Lone Star?
07:45:18 <Ryan> Little Squirt
07:45:32 <Joe> Katie, I hope you can achieve that dream :)
07:45:34 <Casey> Oh. That makes much more sense.
07:45:45 <Ryan> I think Lone Star is a tad rough for visibility today.
07:45:54 <Casey> No kidding
07:47:24 <Dave from B™> haha Casey
07:48:07 <Dave from B™> Joe, I'm glad you found this spot and driving the cam.
07:48:34 <Ryan> I could certainly plop a Lone Star webcam entry on GT. Though I may wait a few days before I do that.
07:48:50 <Ryan> I do actually think Little Squirt is IE though and probably has been for an hour or more.
07:50:02 <Joe> Thanks Dave, I am only driving as a fill in now, too many appoints and procedures for other problems
07:50:29 <Joe> appointments *
07:51:11 <Dave from B™> Well, take it 1 problem at a time and I have fiath you will be a full time driver in the future
07:52:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Finding something to do like the cam is also good Dave. I had wanted to do volunteer work in the park but I just couldn't get around enough or hear good enough. This fills the gap.
07:52:29 <Joe> Speaking of appointments, I am on my way to another one, see you later
07:52:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Take care Joe.
07:52:52 <Dave from B™> Bye Joe
07:53:07 <Kat> Later Joe - thanks!
07:53:19 <Casey> Talk to you later Joe. Maybe you'll be the grand whisperer today.
07:53:40 <Dave from B™> I shouldn't have any problems staying busy, especially if for the first years I can still put in about 20 hours a week for my daughter while I'm in town and even sdown south
07:58:46 <Kat> The sun really wants to break through!
08:06:05 <Kat> Have a good afternoon Katie!
08:06:13 <Katie> Is the "window opens" when hovering over predictions a new feature or did I just not notice it before. I was hovering and doing the "math" when I saw it.
08:07:03 <Kat> I don't think its new
08:07:07 <Dave from B™> It has to be a new feature
08:07:20 <Dave from B™> oops...I'm just nort obervant then!:)
08:07:31 <Katie> I'm sure I've "hovered" my pointer in that window before.
08:07:49 <Eric> Morning
08:08:21 <Eric> I haven't changed anything :-P Unless someone snuck something new into the code, that feature has been there since I created it :-D
08:08:49 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric. Thanks for the clarification
08:08:53 <Katie> Well, nice feature. I just didn't notice it before. I've been doing math for nothing!
08:09:18 <Katie> HARD math. (ha ha ha)
08:10:45 <LindaGt> Dave from B™, its time to retire when you are healthy enough to do what you want and have enough money to do it. Or even not as much money. Life is short. I'm retired but having problems from lyme, so all the money doesnt help.
08:12:19 <Dave from B™> Linda, that's the type of push I need. Thanks!
08:12:37 <LindaGt> Your health is everything!
08:13:51 <Katie> That's my operating plan, Linda. I want to be able to enjoy that time. I've worked since I was 12. Been tethered to a job. I want some freedom to do things, even if it's just go 8 miles from home and sit in a blind. Doesn't have to be spendy things. But I do want to travel, too, which does mean working a while longer.
08:15:03 <Katie> I was very upset when my Grandma decided she would REFUSE to sell her flower shop to family. Sad to see a business in the family for 70 years go.
08:15:10 <Dave from B™> Yep...travel will be a LARGE part of my retired life so it is hard to calculate what is needed. Plus, I want to leave plenty for our 3 kids
08:15:14 <Katie> Now I thank her.
08:16:18 <Katie> Since we don't have any living children, I plan to spend it all. But the rental properties won't be sold, so our heir(s) will have that continual income stream.
08:17:57 <Ryan> Steam at F&M
08:18:16 <Katie> good eye, Ryan
08:18:16 <Ryan> There was at least
08:18:22 <LindaGt> We moved to southern NJ, cheaper, got a smaller house, cheaper. What I do regret is it's difficult to spend money on travel, but next year things should lighten up.
08:18:52 <Katie> There was considerable steam near Beehive a moment ago.
08:19:11 <Eric> Good timing for BH right now
08:19:29 <Eric> I would expect it within the next 30 minutes
08:19:36 <LindaGt> Hehe while we are philosophizing geysers brewing
08:20:13 <Dave from B™> Katie, I'm having a tough time processing your last stmt. I'm very sorry for your loss.:(
08:21:48 <Katie> Thank you.
08:22:34 <Dave from B™> I hope everyone enjoys the Lion initial and anything that goes soon. Off to PT and then I need to get a tire repaired.
08:22:47 <Katie> Have a good day, Dave.
08:23:12 <LindaGt> Bye dave
08:25:16 <Katie> A watched pot never boils.
08:25:41 <LindaGt> I forgot about Lc
08:26:00 <LindaGt> There it is
08:33:45 <LindaGt> Katie, I enjoyed the epic Yellowstone last night, all the birds!
08:34:12 <Katie> I haven't watched any of them, yet. But I will!
08:34:36 <LindaGt> They are good, you'll enjoy.
08:40:25 <LindaGt> Well I need to go do something else. 😛 I'm on cam at 18:00. Kevin would be proud. I'm practicing military time.
08:40:38 <Katie> :) Have a good day, Linda!
08:41:04 <LindaGt> Thx
08:42:02 <Time for BH> Well, if you love your work, and are the boss, no need to retire, just schedule time off.
08:42:43 <Time for BH> As to what we will see from the new cam location when put on hold, it will be a surprise for everyone.
08:44:05 <Time for BH> Now off to read the news and see how apoplectic the left is this morning.
08:47:03 <Eric> Make sure you read a fox news out let so you can here all the right stuff!
08:48:08 <Time for BH> What do you know, the first article I click on uses the same word.
09:02:53 <Eric> grand ie
09:02:58 <Time for BH> Well, big news. An 18 year old is in trouble for celebrating winning a race by drinking from a bottle of wine he was handed by mistake.
09:03:03 <Eric> everyone sleeping?
09:03:05 <Time for BH> Slow news day.
09:03:47 <Eric> .
09:03:48 <Eric> .
09:03:53 <Time for BH> They are all checking their retirement accounts, thanks to Dave.
09:04:11 <Eric> Is the cam operatorless?
09:04:16 <Katie> And realizing I have to work forever and being depressed.
09:04:19 <Katie> (just kidding)
09:04:49 <Eric> Thanks camop :-D
09:06:52 <Time for BH> Get a job at the park.
09:09:19 <Eric> probably 8m in
09:09:32 <Eric> was there a second there?
09:12:15 <CraigC> back from a bike ride, still no SB, dang
09:12:50 <Eric> Hi Craig
09:14:09 <CraigC> hey Eric, how's it going?
09:15:16 <Eric> Going good...a little sore from weekend hikes, but sucking down coffee to compensate :-P
09:15:31 <CraigC> how many miles?
09:15:49 <Time for BH> Coffee will do that to you.
09:16:15 <Time for BH> lc, or just burp?
09:16:34 <Eric> Not too far, did a 7.2 mile hike on Saturday, with a climb of 2800ft and then did another shorter hike on Sunday with another 1000ft of vertical.
09:17:39 <Eric> Trying to increase my vertical indurance
09:18:51 <CraigC> 2800 ft is a good vertical, that is about the same as a summer ride I love to do on my ebike. Too much for me without the pedal assist.
09:20:11 <Eric> Yep...going up wasn't too bad, but front of my thighs could feel the burn this morning from the trek down. I had about 4ft of snow and a crappy trail coming down the top 1/2
09:20:49 <CraigC> good job, you're an animal
09:21:00 <Eric> This is what my trail looked like for about 3 miles of that trek: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6gcjyst1g3fyv9z/2019-03-23%2008.49.12.jpg?dl=0
09:21:39 <CraigC> dang, a fat-tire bike would have been better for that
09:22:03 <Eric> A bike would have sunk and gone no-place :-P
09:22:13 <Eric> But it was worth it for the views: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nv287jq679qnml8/2019-03-23%2008.17.30.jpg?dl=0
09:22:34 <CraigC> wow, where is that
09:22:53 <Eric> Hamilton Mountain in the Columbia River Gorge
09:23:17 <Eric> That big rock you see down below is called Beacon Rock...and I hike up the face of it on Sunday.
09:24:09 <CraigC> no one entered Grand
09:24:30 <Time for BH> Lion has the hiccups this morning.
09:24:31 <Kat> I was just getting ready to say that Craig
09:24:58 <Eric> I can enter it...I thought someone might have caught the start
09:25:11 <Kat> I'm unsure of the time.
09:25:36 <Kat> I think we caught ie
09:25:57 <CraigC> I found Beacon on Google Earth
09:25:58 <Eric> I caught ie at 1102, but I was hoping someone not on chat caught it earlier
09:26:42 <Time for BH> Well, no bee' for me. Enjoy it in the next few minutes.
09:27:43 <Eric> OF
09:28:36 <Katie> So, so grey...
10:00:38 <Dave from B™> Eric, I'm not sure I want to go hiking with you. you're going to run me into the ground!
10:05:08 <Betty> hi all
10:05:19 <Katie> Hi Betty
10:05:47 <Betty> hi Katie
10:06:26 <Dave from B™> Ni Betty
10:06:42 <Betty> Ni Dave
10:07:15 <Dave from B™> Uggh
10:07:50 <Betty> no Hawaiian welcome? :-D
10:07:52 <ynpvisitor9> I think you do it on purpose Dave. It’s your THING
10:08:26 <Dave from B™> Aloha:)
10:08:44 <Dave from B™> Can I blame it on my eyesight?:)
10:09:05 <Betty> I thought "Ni" was ;-)
10:10:00 <Betty> Aloha, Dave
10:10:36 <CraigC> we are the gazers who say "NI"
10:13:26 <Dave from B™> I'm not excited to see a 8 day plus interval on SB
10:14:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Giant has a long interval too.
10:14:06 <Betty> in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" there are the "Knights Who Say Ni"
10:14:39 <Kevin L™🌵> They like shubbery.
10:15:16 <Betty> yep
10:15:42 <Betty> shrubbery that is?
10:17:06 <Dave from B™> I read that as a new flavor of ice cream
10:17:19 <Betty> don´t cnfuse me too, Kevin. I can barely handle Dave´s typos :-p
10:17:52 <Kevin L™🌵> I am lucky to just find the keyboard today.
10:23:12 <Dave from B™> Kevin, it should be right in front of you:)
10:23:40 <Betty> maybe your head is lying on it
10:23:41 <Dave from B™> And, keep telling yourself it is Apple Cider:)
10:24:14 <Kevin L™🌵> I think Betty is right
10:26:45 <Betty> you had a hard night? are the Grandkids with you?
10:26:58 <Betty> indy
10:26:59 <Betty> .
10:27:00 <Betty> .
10:27:00 <Betty> .
10:27:19 <Betty> I think
10:27:19 <LindaG> Wow bee esp again
10:27:34 <Betty> oops
10:27:55 <Betty> it sure looked like, but only bubblers
10:28:27 <LindaG> No bee esp? Lol oh well
10:28:44 <Betty> sorry and hi Linda
10:28:44 <LindaG> Hi betty and kevin

10:31:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Faisy
10:31:20 <Betty> yay
10:31:46 <Katie> didn't you mean repression, Betty?
10:31:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Now I am picking up Betty's typos.
10:32:04 <Betty> and Riverside
10:32:05 <Eric> riverside
10:32:22 <Dave from B™> Ok...crying wolf is worse than a typo!:D
10:33:23 <Betty> hi Eric
10:33:46 <Betty> beat you
10:36:11 <Katie> Kevin, are you going to enter Faisy?
10:38:48 <Kevin L™🌵> I huess i kan
10:39:02 <Katie> I hust did
10:39:29 <Steph> Hi Everyone!
10:39:39 <Betty> hi Steph
10:39:40 <Katie> Ni Steph!
10:39:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
10:40:01 <Steph> All fingers crossed for Steamboat?
10:40:09 <Katie> Toes, too!
10:40:13 <Steph> Yaaaa!
10:40:38 <Katie> never known so many people to avidly watch a seismo. hah!
10:41:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Giant is due also
10:41:08 <ynpvisitor1> Only those that live in San fran or LA.
10:41:11 <Steph> Yay!!
10:42:00 <ynpvisitor1> be burp
10:44:03 <Betty> Depression
10:44:27 <ynpvisitor1> More people watch steaming ground hoping for hot water to shoot out.
10:44:57 <ynpvisitor1> Some will even stand around for days with their legs crossed just to go home with out seeing the water.
10:45:59 <Dave from B™> Becca saw a blowhole on the OR coast yesterday and even got excited
10:46:14 <Katie> I would, too, Dave!
10:46:44 <ynpvisitor1> Coast, I thought she moved East?
10:46:46 <Dave from B™> I've seen 2 in the last year:)
10:47:13 <Dave from B™> She did move East. She is going to WA & OR for Spring Break
10:47:21 <ynpvisitor1> That is nothin, i know a lady that kissed a whale.
10:48:01 <ynpvisitor1> She misses Rust? Most kids head south where it is warm.
10:48:23 <Eric> Dave, you can keep up with me I am sure :-D I just want to be a little faster in case of Bear :-P
10:48:24 <ynpvisitor1> I am sure Kevin has some yard work she could be doing.
10:49:23 <Eric> Lion looks ready, but I expect BH before Lion
10:50:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Did some already. I was working on my shubbery.
10:50:18 <Kevin L™🌵> She?
10:51:05 <Eric> Becca
10:51:29 <Kevin L™🌵> OK, still waking up.
10:52:34 <Dave from B™> haha Eric
10:52:51 <Kevin L™🌵> I did find out Friday that my last NDOT job was a success. Had a flood in Rainbow Canyon about 10 days ago and the road survived. Railroad was not so lucky.
10:53:08 <Katie> Good work!
10:53:10 <Eric> Well done Kevin!
10:53:48 <Dave from B™> Becca is too poor to go South for Spring Break...wait...make that too tight...which is just fine with me
10:54:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I guess the overflow sections we built had about 8 feet of water running over them with no damage once the water came down.
10:54:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Smart Kid Dave.
10:54:49 <Dave from B™> She has more money in the bank than either of my other kids
10:54:57 <Dave from B™> by a long shot
10:56:00 <Eric> Nothing wrong with a trip to the PNW for spring break! Less crowds and better hiking :-D
10:57:53 <Dave from B™> She went to Depoe Bay and Lincoln City yesterday. In Portland visiting her old stomping grounds today
10:58:37 <Eric> Nice...pretty good weather this weekend too
11:00:19 <Katie> PNW is a great trip.
11:02:22 <Betty> looks like OF
11:03:50 <Katie> So grey today that OF's plume is lost. Those against trees show up much better. Should Giant go, it won't be as dramatic as usual.
11:05:12 <Eric> Any bets on Giant/Steamboat dual?
11:05:24 <ynpvisitor22> any bets that they are done erupting?
11:05:33 <Katie> Bets? No. Hoping? Yes.
11:08:04 <Eric> I would bet against them being done erupting...probably with decent odds too :-D
11:08:47 <Eric> But Giant and Steamboat like to dual
11:15:30 <Dave from B™> We are due for a duel
11:15:39 <Dave from B™> same day, that is
11:20:20 <Katie> LC
11:25:11 <Betty> bah, cam is down
11:25:33 <Katie> It's troubled, but up. I've got stream on public and controls
11:25:53 <Betty> yes, back now
11:28:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Sea water in the lines.
11:31:10 <LindaGt> Anybody see PC erupting in the last few minutes
11:31:16 <LindaGt> LC
11:31:26 <Katie> Yes, 11 minutes ago
11:31:41 <Betty> my PC is erupting??
11:31:57 <LindaGt> Duck lol
11:32:09 <Katie> ha ha
11:32:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Tannerite makes them erupt good.
11:33:02 <Betty> RIP Danica
11:33:31 <LindaGt> Katie Ok I'll enter at 13:20 does that sound good?
11:33:40 <CraigC> Danica?
11:33:43 <Betty> it is in
11:33:43 <Kevin L™🌵> And the P stands for pieces.
11:33:44 <Katie> Yup
11:46:38 <ynpvisitor64> I think be and lion' are on spring brake.
11:48:28 <CraigC> I googled Danica Patrick to see if something happened to her, and what do I see.... a pic of her butt. Friggin google
11:48:29 <Kevin L™🌵> They did turn on the Sprinkler.
11:50:01 <Katie> I want a bear
11:50:13 <Kevin L™🌵> There is a girl coming up that you should be seeing in Nascar soon. Her Name is Hailie Deegan. She can drive a car. Won the dirt race here in Vegas about a month ago.
11:50:36 <Kevin L™🌵> A moose would be nice too.
11:50:42 <CraigC> can she turn right, though? ;)
11:51:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes she can. Came from a family of off road racers.
11:52:28 <LindaGt> Here bearie bearie
11:54:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Most of the bears I have seen have been between OF and Castle although there was one in the trees by the VEC once (in July!).
11:55:33 <Betty> yes I remember that one
11:55:46 <Dave from B™> CraigC, Kevin's computer was named after his favorite NASCAR driver besides Kyle:)
11:56:04 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
11:56:15 <Kevin L™🌵> It was named Danica because it ran slow and always crashed.
11:56:47 <CraigC> you can go on google and get a pic to print and tape to it
11:58:23 <Dave from B™> I don't think it is around anymore, Kevin
11:58:36 <Dave from B™> I meant Craig
12:02:43 <LindaGt> Is that a really big buffalo patty in the middle there?
12:03:43 <Dave from B™> Maybe another tree popping up from the Firehole area?
12:05:06 <Dave from B™> Linda, do you know how you can tell if its a buffalo pie?
12:05:26 <LindaGt> No, how?
12:06:00 <Dave from B™> C'mon Craig...you're not going to help us out?
12:06:28 <Dave from B™> I was gonna say, zoom in and see if it is steaming
12:06:29 <CraigC> I've never tasted one, sorry
12:06:57 <LindaGt> Lol
12:07:01 <ynpvisitor64> If it is not steaming, is it a chip?
12:07:06 <CraigC> I thought you were leading into some joke
12:07:20 <LindaGt> Me too craig
12:07:28 <Steph> Me three!
12:07:29 <ynpvisitor64> The kind you make nachos out of?
12:07:43 <Dave from B™> If it's not steaming then it's a tree:)
12:07:49 <Katie> GHP?
12:07:51 <Kevin L™🌵> I remember two young girls arguing whether it was Bison poop of Buffalo poop once.
12:07:57 <CraigC> I had the whole family gathered 'round for the punchline
12:08:11 <Dave from B™> Yeah, sure you did, CraigC!
12:08:16 <CraigC> lol
12:08:22 <CraigC> Kevin, LOL
12:08:46 <Betty> Aurum?
12:08:55 <LindaGt> When I get on, I'm going to check it out
12:08:55 <Betty> static
12:09:15 <CraigC> reminds me of a g/f asking me if I knew what her mom's figuring was, and I said Man a la Mancha, and she said NO! it is Don Quixote!!!!
12:09:34 <CraigC> figurine
12:09:36 <Dave from B™> For the longest time I thought the other tree top closer to BH was a bush
12:10:04 <LindaGt> I thought it was a Bush. Huh
12:10:21 <CraigC> I thought it was a shrubbery
12:10:41 <Dave from B™> Nope... a tree growing down by the Firehole river
12:10:51 <LindaGt> If it wasnt formthat tree I'd never find bee
12:11:04 <Steph> I had no idea!
12:11:09 <LindaGt> *for that
12:11:14 <ynpvisitor64> I thought it was a toupee that got blown off someone.
12:11:18 <CraigC> I'll wait for Mueller to check it out
12:11:35 <Casey> If it weren't for steam from Lion I would have for sure thought my steam froze
12:11:41 <LindaGt> Dont wait for that he wont decide
12:12:18 <LindaGt> Hi casey
12:13:24 <ynpvisitor64> "I am not sure if he did it or not" is better then "she did it but no one would prosecute".
12:13:29 <Dave from B™> 42 minutes from the 8 day mark
12:13:41 <ynpvisitor64> Giant burp
12:13:43 <Casey> Hi Linda
12:16:31 <Dave from B™> I'm with Casey. Not much movement in our view today
12:16:32 <Betty> bubblers
12:17:20 <ynpvisitor64> We need dancin bears
12:17:27 <Dave from B™> I can't believe we are still waiting for lion. It looked ready to go this morning
12:18:05 <CraigC> I'm waiting for the green waste dump to open. 40 minutes
12:18:20 <LindaGt> It's good the bubblers ramped up again
12:18:22 <Steph> Maybe Steamboat, Bee and Lion are all waiting for Giant...
12:19:30 <ynpvisitor64> The boat is waiting for Dave to hit the road.
12:19:33 <CraigC> LC?
12:19:41 <ynpvisitor64> It worked in the summer
12:20:11 <Betty> yup
12:20:13 <CraigC> my stream is choppy
12:20:42 <ynpvisitor64> Is it a stream if it is not steady?
12:21:02 <Steph> It's a geyser conspiracy... against Dave. ;)
12:21:21 <LindaGt> CraigC, yup I'll enter it's my punishment 😉
12:21:29 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
12:22:01 <Dave from B™> F&M didn't like me for 10 years...then it finally relented and I saw it twice in the same year 3 years ago
12:22:20 <Casey> I'll forgive Lion if Big Cub or Lioness erupt.
12:22:39 <Dave from B™> Linda, you will offend Betty and me if you talk bad about LC.:)
12:23:06 <CraigC> are we hoping the bison turd erupts? why we pointed at it?
12:23:24 <LindaGt> Uh oh, I complained about it the other day and Graham made me enter all day. Lol
12:23:25 <Betty> thanks, Dave :-)
12:23:26 <Dave from B™> Maybe it's going to move?
12:23:31 <Katie> Keeping Lion, Bee and Giant in view for the time being.
12:23:32 <ynpvisitor64> Looking for bars
12:23:43 <CraigC> ahhh
12:24:00 <Betty> bars or bears?
12:24:19 <ynpvisitor64> depdns on what hill you are from
12:24:23 <CraigC> bars is how mtn men say it
12:24:28 <ynpvisitor64> or holler
12:24:30 <Dave from B™> Isn't it the 4th largest active geyser on the hill?
12:24:31 <Casey> Bears walking around with cell phones trying to get signal bars
12:24:35 <Steph> :lol::lol::lol:
12:24:43 <Betty> lol
12:24:52 <CraigC> he got et by a bar
12:25:06 <LindaGt> It sure is a tive
12:25:08 <Casey> That is great, Craig
12:25:16 <LindaGt> *active
12:26:27 <Dave from B™> So, I don't know much about LC but it seems it has series (like lion). Is that true?
12:26:44 <Dave from B™> C'mon, LION!!
12:26:54 <Katie> and BEE
12:26:57 <Betty> sometimes it is blocked
12:26:59 <Katie> Another GHP?
12:27:09 <LindaGt> In the fall I thought it was fun trying to catch little club in eruption
12:27:30 <CraigC> Dave from B™, it pretty much erupts whenever you point the cam at it
12:27:49 <Casey> OF on static
12:27:51 <Casey> oops
12:27:53 <Dave from B™> CraigC, don't tell Linda that....she'll never point that way!
12:28:00 <CraigC> :)
12:28:09 <LindaGt> I asked Graham if it ever took a break, said it might nap, but basically erupts about every half hour or so
12:28:51 <Dave from B™> Sounds like an assignment for the king of small geysers...Micah, I have a project for You:)
12:28:57 <Betty> OF ie?
12:29:09 <ynpvisitor25> why aren't we watching OF?
12:29:09 <LindaGt> We're just seeing it easily because of temp.
12:29:16 <ynpvisitor25> I thought that was a rule
12:29:36 <Katie> gah!
12:29:38 <LindaGt> Rule is in eruption
12:29:42 <Casey> Yes. I first saw it 1427
12:29:49 <ynpvisitor25> it's basically over
12:29:51 <Casey> on static
12:30:51 <ynpvisitor25> funny watching LC instead of OF

12:42:24 <Katie> Thanks for sending, Linda.
12:42:32 <LindaGt> Yw
12:43:02 <Casey> NOOO! Unless it is a super short Indy I am going to miss Bee. I'm the one Bee was waiting on.
12:43:07 <GE ©> TY for the text
12:43:13 <ynpvisitor64> Cute little geyser, is that what everyone has been excited about? If so, you are an easy crowd.
12:43:32 <Kitt> well I got my wish for a daylight Beehive
12:43:47 <Kitt> although I thought it might erupt earlier today
12:43:50 <ynpvisitor64> It is bigger then lc though!
12:43:56 <Dave from B™> What is larger, BHI or LC?
12:44:03 <Dave from B™> I'm gurssing LC
12:44:07 <ynpvisitor25> BHI for sure
12:44:18 <ynpvisitor25> are you talking eruption height?
12:44:24 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor64, it gets bigger, justmwait
12:44:36 <Dave from B™> I guess I'm wrong again....well, then I lied earlier. LC is the 5th largest active geyser on GH
12:44:42 <LindaGt> *just wait
12:44:51 <Kitt> #64 that cute little geyser tells us that the cone beside it is ready to erupt
12:44:57 <Dave from B™> yes, height. I guess I forgot pump as well
12:45:27 <ynpvisitor25> Lion, Depression, BHI, BH, Aurum, Pump
12:45:48 <ynpvisitor25> NG
12:45:54 <Eric> LC is taller than Depression
12:45:58 <Kitt> you forgot Little Squirt
12:45:59 <ynpvisitor25> no way
12:46:09 <ynpvisitor25> not a tall Depression burst
12:46:37 <Eric> I have seen some pretty tall LC bursts too
12:46:39 <Dave from B™> LC is taller than you think
12:47:11 <Eric> Yes, little squirt can get pretty big
12:47:16 <Eric> Dome
12:47:25 <ynpvisitor25> a minute ago you were saying you thought it was taller than BHI...it's not
12:47:28 <LindaGt> I think LC is cute, such a big mound for suchna small spout
12:47:29 <Eric> Dome ini specificially
12:48:01 <Dave from B™> If I remember correctly, taller LC bursts go 6-8'
12:48:02 <ynpvisitor64> Anemone is the best of them all.
12:48:10 <Eric> Hi Micah
12:48:14 <Lori S> Beehive break at work. :) thx for txt
12:48:15 <ynpvisitor25> Anenome
12:48:16 <Dave from B™> :D
12:48:24 <ynpvisitor25> so lots of them taller than LC
12:48:43 <Eric> Is anemone taller than LC?
12:48:45 <Lori S> Anenemy
12:48:50 <Dave from B™> Anemone is NOT taller than LC
12:48:55 <ynpvisitor64> No, it is just better
12:48:56 <Eric> I didn't think so
12:49:10 <GE ©> Fun to watch
12:49:12 <Eric> I can't disagree with that...anemone is a pretty stellar geyser
12:49:13 <Dave from B™> It should have been called Baby Grand
12:49:15 <GE ©> and listen
12:49:25 <ynpvisitor25> there's LC, it's like Split Cone
12:49:39 <Katie> Wants it's share of attention
12:49:46 <Lori S> splashing
12:49:48 <Eric> Spit cone is way smaller than LC
12:49:48 <Katie> *its
12:50:11 <Dave from B™> ouch, 25. LC compared to SC is like 4.0 and 5.0 on the richter scale
12:50:12 <ynpvisitor25> I have seen Split Cone do what lc is doing now
12:50:12 <Katie> too bad the stream is so choppy
12:50:15 <Kitt> and Split Cone isn't on geyser hill
12:50:30 <ynpvisitor25> I was only going for height Kitt
12:50:31 <Eric> True That :-D
12:50:38 <Betty> LC
12:50:57 <Dave from B™> Man, who created this firestorm, anyway?:)
12:51:00 <ynpvisitor25> lc started at 49
12:51:08 <Betty> I know
12:51:17 <LindaGt> So how tall is the spout on LC? Like what we are seeing.
12:51:37 <Lori S> my webcam is freezing every time a comment posts. :(
12:51:39 <LindaGt> Yes entered lc
12:51:40 <Kitt> earlier you said LC was 5th largest active geyser on geyser hill Dave
12:51:41 <Katie> No, from this angle, we only see the "top" of LC
12:51:49 <Dave from B™> Linda, there are 2 sizes of LC eruptions
12:51:55 <Eric> how tall does butterfly spring get?
12:52:03 <Eric> or is it peanut that erupts up there?
12:52:10 <Dave from B™> Kitt, I know it was me
12:52:35 <Eric> Always Dave's fault
12:52:55 <LindaGt> Oh no is this a setup? What are the sizes dave?
12:53:04 <Dave from B™> Kitt, I have a question for you. Has there always been 2 Firehole River treetops in view or did one of them finally grow tall enough to be soon
12:53:19 <Kitt> I don't think I have seen an 8' LC
12:53:34 <Kitt> I think we have always seen two treetops
12:53:37 <Dave from B™> No setup. I just made a statement without thinking again.
12:53:50 <ynpvisitor64> gosa says they are tied
12:53:51 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Kitt re 2 treetops
12:54:14 <Kitt> Climb Beehive, Climb!
12:54:16 <CraigC> :bee:
12:54:16 <Eric> BH I think
12:54:18 <Kitt> Boom
12:54:19 <Eric> Boom
12:54:21 <Dave from B™> Woohoo
12:54:29 <Eric> It froze for me as it started
12:54:36 <CraigC> me too
12:54:52 <LindaGt> Yeah
12:55:00 <ynpvisitor64> With all the reruns, maybe I will get stuck in a start loop
12:55:00 <J. Darmstadtium> Got a start, then a freeze
12:55:01 <Kitt> The treetops always look like a bush to me
12:55:17 <J. Darmstadtium> Good action snapshots, though
12:55:33 <ynpvisitor25> sun
12:55:33 <Kitt> ok bush is heighlighted
12:55:33 <Eric> What a beautiful geyser!
12:55:41 <Kitt> where is bush geyser?
12:55:46 <Katie> Sunlight!
12:55:47 <Dave from B™> Eric likes former President Bush
12:55:49 <ynpvisitor25> what treetops?
12:55:50 <Katie> Whoop!
12:55:51 <Kitt> Nice lighting on bee
12:55:53 <Eric> click on it!
12:56:04 <ynpvisitor25> well, don't click on it NOW
12:56:07 <LindaGt> Nice sunlight
12:56:13 <Lori S> 25 lol
12:56:19 <Kitt> I was going to say, I don't want to miss bee
12:56:25 <Eric> :-D
12:56:33 <Kitt> awe the sun went away
12:56:34 <Eric> It's near the grand group Kitt
12:57:05 <Kitt> is it an official name?
12:57:11 <Lori S> I've got a freeze frame bee going here
12:57:12 <Dave from B™> I've never heard of Bush Geyser
12:57:13 <Eric> Well, it's in GT
12:57:22 <LindaGt> Me too
12:57:32 <Dave from B™> I didn't think gyesers could be named after people:)
12:57:48 <Eric> When bee is done just click on the word bush and it will take you to a GT map
12:57:59 <ynpvisitor25> why isn't anemone blue?
12:58:09 <Kitt> it is a geyser
12:58:13 <Eric> because anemone isn't a geyser
12:58:19 <ynpvisitor25> what?
12:58:21 <Eric> big anemone and small anemone are
12:58:21 <Dave from B™> It's blue if you spell it correctly:)
12:58:22 <Kat> Go Bee!!
12:58:24 <Kitt> Yes it is
12:58:27 <Dave from B™> guess not
12:58:31 <ynpvisitor78> Anemone-Big should be highlighted
12:58:37 <Eric> Yep
12:58:39 <ynpvisitor64> towards Daisy but close to grand'.
12:58:42 <Eric> 78 nailed it
12:58:50 <Kitt> Anemone
12:58:58 <ynpvisitor25> that's goofy
12:58:59 <Betty> evening Jarno
12:59:05 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
12:59:09 <Eric> Jarno knows :-D
12:59:14 <Lori S> BTW, hello all
12:59:19 <Eric> Hi Lori
12:59:21 <LindaGt> Hi jarno
12:59:24 <Betty> hi Lori
12:59:33 <LindaGt> Hi lori
12:59:48 <ynpvisitor64> Anemone- little
12:59:53 <Kat> Hi all, made it just in time! love the text!
13:00:05 <ynpvisitor64> Anemone-little
13:00:10 <LindaGt> Kat, hi kat glad u made it
13:00:31 <Dave from B™> Is Bush geyser in the bushes?
13:00:33 <ynpvisitor64> Well the circle is driving me nuts. Enjoy.
13:01:00 <J. Darmstadtium> Bush is on the other side of the boardwalk
13:01:08 <Eric> Probably use to be...just like a geyser in a grove of trees :-P
13:01:49 <ynpvisitor999®> and I'm off again. Have fun watching the spinning circle
13:01:52 <Kat> Thanks Linda, still working on those darnrecess! I'm over it!
13:02:25 <Kat> taxes not recess! Lol
13:02:28 <Eric> Will has 6 bush geyser entries from 2013
13:02:37 <LindaGt> Kat, darn what?
13:02:41 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Jimbo....since Boardwalk is already used they picked Bush...makes sense to me :P
13:03:00 <Kat> Taxes
13:03:08 <J. Darmstadtium> I grabbed this from the Google search results (quoting Bryan's book): "Bush Geyser” (previously UNNG-CGG-4). In the open flat across the boardwalk west of the Economic Geysers and Wave Spring is an assortment of small ..."
13:03:13 <LindaGt> Kat, lol that's a word I'd come up with
13:03:23 <ynpvisitor84> with the letter spacing darn always looks like another word to me
13:03:29 <Eric> Thanks Jimbo
13:03:38 <Eric> Surprised Jim never logged it
13:04:21 <Dave from B™> I'm pretty good normally at directions, but in the UGB I have no clue
13:04:33 <J. Darmstadtium> If you click on the Google Search link you can read that page from the book
13:04:38 <Kat> It is, I'm on my phone so it's even harder!😃
13:05:26 <Kitt> So maybe it was Bush geyser we saw erupt last summer
13:05:27 <Kat> 84, that's funny!
13:05:29 <Kitt> Daisy
13:07:21 <Kitt> Hm, I wonder if I noted it in my notebook
13:08:00 <Dave from B™> I'll have to look that direction when I'm sitting at Grand
13:08:25 <Dave from B™> I wonder what year it was named
13:08:30 <Kitt> I remember someone pointing out the eruption, but don't know if they said the name
13:08:58 <Kitt> have a good day
13:09:05 <J. Darmstadtium> Bryan's book page says that the bush that provided the name isn't there anymore. So it should be "Lost Bush Geyser".
13:09:59 <Joe> lionś window opened at 1455
13:10:05 <Dave from B™> haha. like Lost Lake. I bet there are over a 100 Lost Lakes in the US
13:10:13 <Dave from B™> There are at least 2 in the GYE
13:11:43 <Dave from B™> Bye Kitt
13:16:09 <Katie> c'mon, Lion. Your turn!
13:18:41 <LindaGt> Lc ie
13:26:54 <Eric> What was that erupting near the brige?
13:27:45 <Eric> deleted tea kettle?
13:28:06 <Eric> Looks like the far side of the river
13:28:47 <Joe> swing wider for sprinkler
13:29:20 <Eric> Yes, I know sprinkler is almost always active...but haven't seen that much activity in that spot before
13:29:20 <Joe> there it is ie
13:29:53 <Dave from B™> Joe, I've made it to the elastic band protion of PT
13:30:11 <Joe> ẽvery 24 min
13:30:43 <Joe> Great Dave is the stregenthing going well
13:30:43 <Dave from B™> Should talk about how big Sprinkler is?:)
13:30:48 <Katie> Is it Terra Cottas over the 4/5 trees?
13:31:20 <Dave from B™> Yeah...no pain. Still can't sleep on it or do any lifting more than 5-10#
13:31:21 <Joe> strengthening*
13:31:30 <Dave from B™> How is your recovery going?
13:31:54 <J. Darmstadtium> That has to be the Terra Cotta group
13:32:02 <Joe> wow! sounds like it is improving well
13:32:48 <Joe> Very good on pullyes at full range of motion
13:33:24 <Dave from B™> nice. I was surprised how hard it was to regain the flexibility
13:34:43 <Eric> seemed too far to the right to be terra cotta group
13:35:37 <J. Darmstadtium> Looking at the map, there's nothing else there, though.
13:36:01 <Joe> The flexibility is slow, considering how long you did not use it because it hurt
13:36:40 <Eric> deleted tea kettle
13:37:04 <Dave from B™> Yep. I hadn't been able to raise my right arm for ar least 8-10 weeks prior to surgery
13:37:09 <Eric> river growler
13:37:22 <Eric> south scalloped spring
13:37:34 <Dave from B™> Eric, not in GT, so not a real geyser:)
13:37:47 <Katie> ouch
13:38:04 <Dave from B™> Only a geyser wannabe
13:38:13 <Eric> True that
13:39:02 <Dave from B™> I'm still shell shocked by people calling my lc short
13:39:03 <Eric> scalloped spring had a baby bison induced eruption!
13:39:26 <Eric> It's not all about the size of your geyser Dave
13:39:36 <Dave from B™> I seem to remember that happening. When was that, Eric?
13:39:44 <Eric> 1996
13:40:12 <Dave from B™> Thanks. I'm just gonna ignore that other comment so as not to get either one of us in trouble.
13:40:38 <Joe> When you look at a person standing on the BW and watch LC you see it is not hort
13:40:54 <Joe> short*
13:41:07 <Dave from B™> It appears shorter than it is because it is on Lion Hill
13:42:22 <LindaGt> How tall is the spout? 1 foot 2 foot, 5 foot?
13:43:15 <Eric> ok...TSB settles it...Little Cub 10ft, BHI 6-10ft!
13:43:26 <Dave from B™> 1-3' on short eruptions. Most larger eruption are probably 4-6'
13:43:31 <Eric> Take that LC haters!
13:43:42 <Joe> :)
13:43:58 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Eric
13:44:14 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure how often it gets to 10'
13:44:20 <LindaGt> Lol I love little cub, right joe?
13:44:38 <Betty> LC
13:44:43 <Joe> Yes, yes, yes
13:44:58 <Eric> Sunset, sitting at Doublet watching LC do it's thing on a summer evening is magical!
13:45:15 <Betty> I love it
13:45:55 <Eric> That is my favorite bench in the park
13:45:55 <LindaGt> Got it
13:46:02 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure I'd go that far, Eric
13:46:24 <Eric> What is YOUR favorite bench in the park?
13:46:35 <Betty> Jimbo again uses the town I work
13:46:43 <Dave from B™> The one at Oblong:)
13:46:55 <Joe> The one where Dave looks at dirt
13:46:56 <Dave from B™> wait, there isn't one there
13:47:03 <Dave from B™> hahahaha Joe
13:47:04 <Betty> Doublet bench is one of the best.
13:47:12 <Eric> haha...I was about to ask where that is Dave :-P
13:47:34 <Dave from B™> I bring my own bench
13:47:38 <Eric> I almost never sit at the BH benches
13:48:14 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure what my favorite is but I like 3 benches on GH: Plume, Lion, Doublet
13:48:18 <Kevin L™🌵> If they had a bench by Aurum...
13:48:25 <Eric> I do like the benches at bijou :-D
13:48:35 <Dave from B™> That's a cage:)
13:48:53 <Eric> Meh, it's not a cage
13:48:59 <Dave from B™> Yep...very relaxing at Bijou
13:49:04 <Eric> So easy to walk away after a hot period
13:49:30 <Eric> You get to watch the Osprey fish in the river and keep your eye on Purple pool
13:49:34 <Dave from B™> I like any bench where I can also keep an eye on osprey and the river
13:49:56 <Eric> Steamboat is a prison!
13:50:16 <Dave from B™> It's like being stranded on a Norwegian cruiseship
13:50:27 <Katie> ha ha
13:50:31 <Eric> without the all you can eat buffets!
13:50:44 <Dave from B™> Except you don't get a free helicopter ride
13:50:49 <Eric> or bathrooms
13:52:00 <Dave from B™> We do need to bring back Larry's Lunch Station
13:53:18 <Eric> Steamboat was such a mess last spring, no water or flush toilets for memorial day!
13:53:32 <Eric> 70 degrees and burning sunshine
13:53:44 <Eric> There were so many fried faces
13:53:50 <Dave from B™> That's right. They didn't open up the regular bathroom until right after that and it is in bad shape as well.
13:54:18 <Dave from B™> I'll remember to pack lots of water if I go early in the season
13:54:38 <Dave from B™> I just realized I won't be able to go Opening Weekend. It is Easter weekend
13:54:41 <Eric> Yes, bring an entire case of bottles with you!
13:54:53 <Eric> Meh, easter happens every year
13:55:07 <Eric> Take some boiled eggs with you and hit the road man
13:57:34 <LindaGp> Now there's two of me.
13:58:19 <Dave from B™> I have family coming to town
13:58:20 <Joe> you can operate the cam twice this afternoon :)
13:58:40 <Dave from B™> Time for me to head home and walk the rats. Have a great evening everyone!
13:58:56 <LindaGt> Good night dave
13:59:03 <Eric> Night Dave
13:59:08 <Dave from B™> Betty, PLEASE press the SB before you go to bed!
13:59:08 <Joe> night Dave

15:22:11 <LindaGp> Now it's going
15:22:36 <Eric> Nice lighting too
15:27:44 <LindaGp> Nice spikes
15:29:24 <LindaGp> Aurum on static?
15:33:02 <LindaGp> Of ie
15:39:15 <LindaGp> Daisy
15:41:59 <LindaGp> Sprinkler
15:42:41 <ynpvisitor115> SB just posted
15:45:26 <ynpvisitor6> 8 days
15:47:38 <ynpvisitor49> Steamboat 1737
15:47:49 <Katie> Whoop!
15:47:50 <ynpvisitor49> Or thereabouts
15:50:01 <Eric> There it is!
15:50:35 <Eric> Watch for giant!
15:50:49 <Eric> Lion
15:51:18 <ynpvisitor1> Go Steamboat!
15:51:38 <ynpvisitor1> And nice Lion right now
15:51:43 <ynpvisitor49> #11
15:51:59 <ynpvisitor1> ooh, nice strong signature this time
15:52:04 <LindaGp> Nice
15:52:09 <ynpvisitor49> Yep
15:53:16 <ynpvisitor1> and SB during the light! Perhaps that can become a trend
15:54:25 <LindaGp> Oh steamboat!
15:54:46 <ynpvisitor1> People are allowed to drive there now, admin folks, maybe someone will go visit
15:56:20 <ynpvisitor1> The road opens to bikes April 1. Is Dave riding in?
15:57:10 <ynpvisitor49> Haha. No, he is not riding 50 miles round trip
15:58:11 <Kevin L™🌵> He will get a tandem bike and have Becca pedal it.
15:58:56 <Lori S> Go Steamboat!
15:59:10 <ynpvisitor1> They make electric bikes now, he could use one of those and pedal part time.
15:59:17 <Eric> Are the roads plowed from West to Norris?
15:59:27 <ynpvisitor1> yes, roads are plowed
15:59:34 <Eric> Very cool, thanks 1
15:59:36 <Lori S> Yes, but not open to the public.
15:59:45 <Lori S> Open to Admin travel only.
15:59:47 <Eric> Yep, I knew that part :-D
15:59:51 <ynpvisitor1> they did Norris to Madison right when it closed, and then Madison to West the day after
16:00:04 <Eric> I just had not realized they finished plowing to norris already
16:00:06 <ynpvisitor1> then to OF, where they had lots to do
16:00:07 <Lori S> Ahhh, I get what you are asking. Lalalala.
16:00:23 <ynpvisitor1> Norris was early, from Mammoth, that is where they start
16:00:35 <ynpvisitor1> that was March 3
16:00:43 <ynpvisitor1> then they went to Canyon
16:00:43 <Eric> Right, but I assumed madison to OF would be a priority
16:00:47 <Lori S> Plows were chomping at the bit waiting at Madison on closing day to go south
16:01:01 <ynpvisitor1> nope, it comes later because that corridor is open latest
16:01:01 <Eric> Ahhh, that makes sense
16:01:08 <Eric> ahhhh
16:01:18 <ynpvisitor1> still open for business
16:01:19 <Eric> some much learnin :-P
16:01:43 <ynpvisitor1> there was a video showing how they broke up the ice, towing the machine
16:01:54 <Eric> I am trying to find a reasonably priced, good quality UV umbrella
16:02:08 <ynpvisitor1> I wish Gustbuster still made them
16:02:09 <Eric> I saw that last year...but never saw this years
16:02:28 <ynpvisitor1> reasonably priced, meaning?? and how big of one?
16:02:28 <ynpvisitor49> My favorite gazer umbrella is Brian’s big one
16:02:52 <ynpvisitor1> golf umbrella size?
16:03:20 <Eric> I would like more compact for throwing in my pack too
16:03:40 <Eric> $20-$50
16:04:00 <Eric> I would prefer $20, but except that quality comes with a higher price
16:04:38 <Eric> I would probably buy a sun tek on amazon if I wanted full golf size
16:05:38 <Lori S> I saw a big silver one held by the guy with the sat phone on 9/7. Whomever that was. I recall wishing I had one!
16:06:00 <Lori S> an umbrella, not a sat phone lol
16:06:04 <Eric> The sun teks are nice, reflective and large and reasonable
16:06:10 <Eric> check amazon
16:06:35 <Lori S> I am certainly going to protect my skin better this year...
16:06:36 <Eric> https://www.amazon.com/Protection-Cheater-Vented-Canopy-Umbrella/dp/B00I0X24HQ/
16:06:41 <Eric> 68" inches
16:07:09 <Eric> vented canopy too
16:08:10 <Eric> I am contemplating this one: https://www.gossamergear.com/products/liteflex-hiking-chrome-umbrella
16:08:19 <Eric> gossamergear makes great stuff
16:09:04 <ynpvisitor1> no vent in that though, I wonder how it would stand up to wind
16:09:38 <Eric> It's smaller umbrella and made with fiberglass ribs, so I think it will do fine
16:09:49 <Eric> gossamer doesn't make cheap crap.
16:09:50 <ynpvisitor1> Folding ones do cost more, and are usually not as stout overall
16:10:20 <Eric> I don't want a throw away umbrella for sure
16:10:59 <ynpvisitor1> that one does look nice. Thanks for that link
16:11:34 <ynpvisitor1> My UV umbrella really helps with gazing
16:11:45 <ynpvisitor49> No need for an umbrella in YNP backcountry. Plenty of trees to hide under
16:12:02 <Eric> Yes, I definitely had umbrella jealousy on the steamboat platform last year
16:12:20 <ynpvisitor1> I like that the Sun Tek ones have colors other than black on the underside. Interesting
16:12:32 <ynpvisitor1> well, they did ban umbrellas at one point
16:13:00 <ynpvisitor1> so go small, it could get nuts again this summer, where they will not allow them at all, or chairs.
16:13:02 <Eric> Yes, the sun teks are nice, but their folding one gets much less than stellar reviews, while their golf one seems pretty good.
16:13:26 <ynpvisitor1> It was the one you posted that looked nice to me
16:13:28 <Eric> Not allowing sun protection seems like a dangerous precedent
16:13:38 <ynpvisitor1> I thought so too, last year
16:14:05 <ynpvisitor49> I still like my floppy hat and now I have a second lighter version I bought in HI
16:14:08 <ynpvisitor1> yet they are saying wear hats, and it is a spacial thing. Some folks bring beach umbrellas, too big.
16:14:20 <Eric> I can understand not wanting those giant beach umbrellas though, that is a little over doing it
16:14:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Get a Dr to prescribe it and tell them you will file an ADA complaint if they don't let you use it.
16:14:36 <Eric> :-D
16:14:45 <ynpvisitor1> It will be interesting to see if everyone can get along on the platforms this summer.
16:15:11 <Eric> Floppy hats are awesome, but they don't stop the heat from beating down on your body
16:15:11 <ynpvisitor1> I will keep that in mind Kevin
16:15:30 <ynpvisitor1> my umbrella brings it down by a good 10 degrees
16:15:44 <Eric> Yep...umbrellas in the sun are smart!
16:16:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Put solar panels on it too.
16:16:29 <ynpvisitor49> My new lighter version worked great at 82 degrees
16:16:30 <Eric> haha...I have a solar panel I am bringing with me this year :-D
16:16:47 <ynpvisitor1> Time for Giant? Is Dave M on cam op duty? He seems to have a good thing going with Giant
16:17:14 <Lori S> If you sit down by Arch Steam Vent, you'd have more room for an umbrella. :)
16:17:18 <LindaGp> No, me
16:17:36 <ynpvisitor1> Have you had a Giant on cam yet Linda?
16:17:57 <LindaGp> Yes it was back in the fall
16:18:12 <ynpvisitor1> fun, here's to another
16:18:24 <ynpvisitor1> that SB signature is very big this time
16:18:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Much stonger than the last wimpy one.
16:20:24 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor1, I'll second that
16:20:51 <Lori S> The really wimpy one was on March 11th
16:21:29 <Lori S> go ahead and check, I'll wait. LOL
16:22:08 <LindaGp> I'm ready giant! Bring it on! 😊
16:22:47 <Lori S> So is Giant about due? I've been off here most of the day.
16:23:00 <Lori S> Or is it just a Steamboat Giant thing?
16:23:16 <LindaGp> Way over due
16:23:31 <LindaGp> Its been two weeks or more inthink
16:23:57 <ynpvisitor1> Giant is 9 1/2 days now. So kind of yet not really overdue.
16:23:59 <LindaGp> For a while giant t and steamboat were going quite close together
16:24:14 <ynpvisitor1> it seems they like to go near each other, with often SB going first
16:24:24 <ynpvisitor1> so why not today? GO GIANT
16:24:32 <ynpvisitor1> where is GO GIANT?
16:25:36 <ynpvisitor49> Must be incognito
16:25:48 <LindaGp> Opera I think
16:27:43 <ynpvisitor1> Some steam down basin
16:27:54 <ynpvisitor115> is only possibly 9 days since Giant. That posting/eruption is questionable. Last for sure eruption Mar 10. Lets hope the loggers are working and not full
16:28:10 <ynpvisitor115> The one on the16th
16:28:14 <LindaGp> Ah the giant posted on the16th is questionable
16:28:46 <Jeff/Go Giant> yay steamboat
16:28:50 <ynpvisitor1> got it, I had not looked at them
16:29:01 <ynpvisitor1> so it might be 15 days
16:29:17 <ynpvisitor1> I agree, hope the logger is working.
16:29:18 <ynpvisitor115> or it was not seen
16:30:04 <ynpvisitor1> sure would be nice of it to appear before dark today
16:30:18 <Jeff/Go Giant> id love to see giant go
16:30:22 <LindaGp> Yes. The giant from 16th was at 4am and inthought it might be. It was the day before steamboat
16:30:44 <ynpvisitor1> Graham entered it with a ?, I see that now
16:31:14 <LindaGp> Yeah figured maybe logger would prove or disprove
16:31:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> Nice of SB to erupt on my shift
16:32:15 <ynpvisitor1> ?, your shift? Linda was driving
16:33:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> Well its my usual shift but opera prevailed. Dual coming up in second act so maybe Giant will go too
16:33:15 <LindaGp> I'm subbing
16:33:42 <Jeff/Go Giant> i hope ill be able to see both SB and giant this summer
16:34:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> Sept 17 last year was fun
16:34:22 <LindaGp> His birthday and his shift
16:34:37 <Jeff/Go Giant> which one went on the 17th?
16:34:57 <Lori S> Which what?
16:35:05 <LindaGp> They may have both gone
16:35:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> Steamboat in the morning and Giant in the afternoon
16:35:15 <Jeff/Go Giant> ahh
16:35:33 <Jeff/Go Giant> i didnt get to see either of those eruptions :(
16:35:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> In great conditions, Giant rainbows
16:36:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> And the 4 or 5 burst SB
16:36:13 <Jeff/Go Giant> i saw a nice Giant rainbow on the Sept 1 eruption
16:36:40 <LindaGp> I think there were two times that they both went on same day
16:37:03 <Jeff/Go Giant> i think on Sept 1st SB went that night
16:37:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> I was at SB all night before it went
16:37:44 <Eric> hot looking NG
16:37:58 <Eric> maybe Lion will take an hour break :-D
16:42:25 <LindaGp> Riverside
16:44:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> So 11 8 7 2 i think and SB set a new 12 month record
16:44:55 <Jeff/Go Giant> id love to see it keep going strong like it has been
16:46:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> And now we wait for the excitement of the Tantalus Creek spike
16:46:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> We all would Jeff
16:46:42 <Jeff/Go Giant> i still wanna see it for my 1st time
16:47:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> There are still a lot of gazers that havent seen it yet
16:48:12 <Jeff/Go Giant> other than SB i wanna try and see a lot of the smaller ones this year
16:48:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> Glad you got to see Giant
16:48:30 <Lori S> I had to check on SB: 11 in 2019, 43 in a row, 42 in the rolling 2 months
16:48:47 <Jeff/Go Giant> jeez
16:49:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> Friends of mine missed Giant in 1997 by one day and had to wait 8 years to see their first
16:49:24 <Jeff/Go Giant> did anyone put in the riverside eruption?
16:49:42 <Lori S> I've only seen Giant on the webcam, never in person.
16:50:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> We need to fix that Lori
16:50:20 <Lori S> Yes, yes we do.
16:50:35 <Kevin L™🌵> I was there for the '86 eruption but no radios back then. I was eating in Lower Hams and missed it.
16:50:39 <Jeff/Go Giant> i got it
16:50:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> I saw my 10th last year
16:51:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> Time for the dual....bye
16:51:11 <Jeff/Go Giant> i saw my only 2 giant eruptions last year
16:51:24 <Lori S> I was present one morning last summer at sunrise when Mike Keller was in the cage. He said come back around 4. We weren't able to. It went pretty close to that if I recall.
16:52:06 <Lori S> Falls under the "knew we were gonna miss it but couldn't stay" category
16:52:12 <Jeff/Go Giant> the one i saw from the start on september 1st he said it would go around i think 5 and he was like 7 minutes off
16:52:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight. See you after the fat lady sings.
16:52:43 <Lori S> Good night Kevin. I'm headed out as well.
16:52:59 <LindaGp> Night kevin
16:53:13 <Jeff/Go Giant> im about to go take a cold shower cause its already getting hot here in AZ
16:53:15 <Kevin L™🌵> I am still around. Tell Graham good Knight.
16:53:40 <Lori S> goodnight Graham
16:54:03 <Lori S> good night all.
16:54:03 <LindaGp> Good knight Graham
16:54:16 <Jeff/Go Giant> night graham night lori
16:54:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Knight Lori
16:59:09 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
16:59:45 <Jeff/Go Giant> OF ie?
16:59:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum was
17:00:17 <LindaGp> Lion puff
17:00:34 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, ok
17:00:56 <LindaGp> Lion
17:02:53 <Jeff/Go Giant> looks like a nice one from lion
17:03:11 <LindaGp> Another nice one
17:03:36 <Jeff/Go Giant> doesnt look very windy either
17:09:12 <LindaGp> LC ie
17:10:26 <LindaGp> OF IE
17:30:00 <Kevin L™🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
17:30:15 <LindaGp> Really!
17:30:32 <Kevin L™🌵> We need Giant right now.
17:30:43 <LindaGp> Inthought you meant Aurum was earlier today, then I saw your entry
17:31:02 <LindaGp> Yes giant
17:31:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought you had zoomed in on it!
17:31:41 <LindaGp> I did but I didn't see water did you?
17:32:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes. Static at 1903 (am time) shows it.
17:33:31 <LindaGp> Ok
17:33:32 <Kevin L™🌵> The egret is not the kind of bird you would expect to see in the desert, is it?
17:33:56 <LindaGp> No but it will be by water
17:35:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Rainbow is a lot of fun because you never know what you will see.
17:35:12 <LindaGp> That didn't look like desert
17:35:34 <LindaGp> Little oasis?
17:36:23 <Kevin L™🌵> It is the Muddy River that runs through a canyon. Once you get out of the canyon it is desert.
17:36:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Depression
17:36:51 <LindaGp> What time of year?
17:37:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Water flows year round.
17:37:53 <LindaGp> Bird could have been migrating and just made a stop
17:38:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Pretty heavy this time of year and floods big time with storms.
17:39:54 <Kevin L™🌵> There are some shallow lakes near Alamo (about 20 miles west of the picture I sent you). I came by once and there was a massive flock of swans! I took a picture and we were about to count over 400 and I didn't get them all into the picture.
17:40:28 <LindaGp> Wow
17:41:29 <LindaGp> Pelicans in yellowstone always surprise me for some reason
17:42:02 <Kevin L™🌵> They are fun.
17:42:39 <Kevin L™🌵> This is a google map of the area with the swans. Always ducks, geese, and various other water birds there. https://www.google.com/maps/@37.2525419,-115.063669,33267m/data=!3m1!1e3
17:42:49 <Steph> Have a great night everyone!!
17:42:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Good knight
17:43:00 <LindaGp> Steph, u too
17:47:11 <LindaGp> Kind of like a migration trap. Nothing else around and the birds are drawn to area.
17:47:54 <LindaGp> Ah steam
17:49:12 <Kevin L™🌵> If you go to the right you will see Elgin and Etna. The egret was between those two locations on SR 317.
17:55:55 <ynpvisitor50> Nice. Well the habitat was right for it. They are very common.
18:09:15 <LindaGP> A bit of steam over giant I think
18:10:10 <ynpvisitor59> SB!
18:10:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Now we need a huge cloud
18:10:42 <LindaGP> Yes
18:11:30 <LindaGP> Kevin L™🌵, that is where giant is, right?
18:11:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes it is.
18:12:00 <ynpvisitor59> GHP?
18:12:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Either that or Grotto
18:12:48 <LindaGP> Ok thats what i thought
18:13:02 <LindaGP> Daisy
18:13:58 <Kevin L™🌵> With the Daisy cloud I would expect Grotto to have a bigger cloud.
18:15:46 <LindaGP> Now everything is hot
18:18:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Too bad it is getting dark.
18:19:19 <LindaGP> I know! Can't stop it. 😔
18:19:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Lion
18:19:56 <LindaGP> Lion puff
18:23:14 <Kevin L™🌵> It is tired too.
18:24:33 <LindaGP> Well sky is clear, once camera adjusts we ight be able to see giant if it goes
18:25:19 <Kevin L™🌵> That is a plus
18:28:02 <LindaGP> Lion
18:28:11 <LindaGP> Nope
18:30:03 <LindaGP> Lion
18:30:13 <LindaGP> Forbreal
18:30:22 <LindaGP> For real
18:38:40 <LindaGP> I'm out of camera
18:39:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like out of light too.
18:41:59 <LindaGt> We could still see it
18:42:41 <LindaGt> OF ie
18:44:32 <ynpvisitor67> I think 2042 might be a good start time
18:47:13 <LindaGt> Well that was a busy few hours. Have a good night
18:47:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Good knight
18:48:03 <LindaGt> Night
