04:20:29 <ynpvisitor63> Oh i thought screen was blacked out, but it's just really dark out there.
04:20:52 <LindaG> Good morning
04:56:55 <LindaG> Hi joe
04:57:21 <ynpvisitor15> Hi Linda
04:57:53 <LindaG> Getting in your geysers while you can. 😊
04:57:59 <ynpvisitor15> Just got up and saw Grand
04:58:10 <LindaG> Nice
04:59:21 <ynpvisitor15> Cam was left down basin (narrow) last night, did not matter, it was dark
05:01:02 <ynpvisitor15> I did not do a night watch last night
05:01:34 <LindaG> No point if you can't see anything
05:04:54 <ynpvisitor15> My recorder shows the cam was having problems all night (same as daytime) and since the night mode has been crippled the cam does not do any 'light gathering'
05:05:56 <LindaG> Sad
05:06:58 <ynpvisitor15> at least meds let me sleep all night,and I'll be on the road ttoday
05:06:58 <LindaG> Admin did mention that in future if we lose public view to let him k ow because it's and easy fix, just needs to reboot
05:07:14 <LindaG> *know
05:07:46 <ynpvisitor15> Good
05:10:27 <LindaG> Everyone gets the day off today. It's good you got sleep.
05:12:59 <LindaG> Looks like a storm to the right
05:20:31 <CraigC> hye Linda
05:21:42 <ynpvisitor15> hye Craig :)
05:22:56 <LindaG> CraigC, good morning
05:23:39 <ynpvisitor15> Castle ie
05:23:56 <LindaG> Nice view
05:24:37 <CraigC> hey 15, Joe?
05:24:54 <ynpvisitor15> yes
05:25:18 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
05:26:04 <CraigC> seems like "hye" happens more than not, guess my right hand fingers are quicker on the draw
05:27:11 <LindaG> I didn't even notice
05:27:28 <LindaG> Pretry sunrise
05:27:39 <ynpvisitor15> Castle is recent was not erupting last look at 0456
05:27:55 <LindaG> I wish I had an excuse for my typing lol
05:32:06 <CraigC> what time does cam shut off, 8?
05:32:33 <ynpvisitor15> Look at keyboard and one finger typing, I get what ever mistakes there are when I hit enter :)
05:32:46 <ynpvisitor15> no Idea
05:34:33 <ynpvisitor15> S in the mist
05:36:46 <ynpvisitor15> OF 0535 static
05:45:17 <LindaG> Visitation is 8-2 So they think at least that long, maybe more
05:45:59 <ynpvisitor15> Daisyin ~40 min
05:46:15 <ynpvisitor15> Daisy in*
05:47:11 <ynpvisitor15> Riverside in ~ 45 min
05:48:15 <ynpvisitor15> CC will take the cam soon
05:52:23 <CraigC> bulger?
05:52:43 <ynpvisitor15> yes
05:52:52 <CraigC> old tardy?
05:53:39 <LindaG> So last night of my trip, found a room open at snow lodge.
05:54:25 <ynpvisitor15> bulger start 0550
05:55:30 <CraigC> thanks, edited it
05:56:14 <ynpvisitor15> too steamy to tell OT or Twilight
05:56:44 <ynpvisitor15> bulger major
05:56:47 <CraigC> I briefly saw a jet at the bottom of the steam on OT
05:57:04 <ynpvisitor15> good
06:02:25 <ynpvisitor15> Hey! Craig *101* grtting up there!
06:02:47 <ynpvisitor15> getting*
06:02:49 <CraigC> watch out, Graham
06:02:56 <ynpvisitor15> :):)
06:04:02 <CraigC> if only we had a cam at Jet
06:11:26 <ynpvisitor15> that would be catch and surpass
06:14:02 <ynpvisitor15> I hope the deer stay off of the road today
06:14:40 <CraigC> ynpvisitor15, are you travelling?
06:15:04 <ynpvisitor15> they have damaged my vehicles more than once
06:15:46 <ynpvisitor15> Yes, appointments in Cody
06:16:37 <CraigC> how far is Cody?
06:16:50 <ynpvisitor15> 85 miles
06:17:11 <ynpvisitor15> a hpp skip and jump
06:17:22 <ynpvisitor15> hop*
06:19:30 <CraigC> ynpvisitor15, Janet Jones shared this speaker event in Cody, July 11th; https://centerofthewest.org/event/lunchtime-expedition-old-faithful/?fbclid=IwAR0l2o8oJfQQ7R6O1IGvWiY0jGLePcI5GGs_QVnYYCYGQ6z_VTwpKh8QNfI
06:21:06 <ynpvisitor15> nice
06:22:37 <ynpvisitor15> Daisy in ~12min
06:24:03 <CraigC> froze
06:41:25 <CraigC> Pence arrived in Billings yesterday, poor Dave missed all the excitement
06:42:10 <CraigC> apparently these guys will have live coverage of West Yellowstone airport on Facebook page; https://www.facebook.com/WakeUpMontana/
06:46:55 <ynpvisitor CC> I see the cam is down
06:47:12 <ynpvisitor CC> I am going to leave it on OF if I can get on
06:47:13 <CraigC> hey CC
06:47:24 <ynpvisitor CC> Hi Craig
06:48:16 <CraigC> I haven't found any live stream of Pence's speech at OF
06:48:42 <ynpvisitor CC> I was able to get into the controls and I put it on OF
06:49:00 <ynpvisitor CC> I am not going to stay on if the stream is not working
06:49:56 <ynpvisitor76> I think they took the stream down at ~0625 mt
06:51:05 <CraigC> static is still updating so far
07:04:20 <CraigC> cam up
07:10:07 <ynpvisitor101> OF
07:10:57 <LindaG> Pretty
07:20:01 <CraigC> Since Pence doesn't arrive in West until 10am, I would hope they leave webcam going until at least 10
07:23:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like I will be tied up all day today so if the cam is working after the photo op my shift is open. Normal is 1000 to 1600 today.
07:24:17 <ynpvisitor77> Why close the VEC at 8? Just all around ridiculous yet my bet is the cam goes dark at 8
07:25:54 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, how are things going with your dad?
07:26:07 <ynpvisitor77> You’d also think they would have more gates open at West Gate to help folks get in before Pence
07:26:59 <CraigC> yeah, the irony of him coming to discuss infrastructure improvements, and breaking the park while doing it
07:29:16 <Kevin L™🌵> He is looking a lot better and now seems more cooperative.
07:30:23 <CraigC> 'cooperative'... that is the part that concerns me with the direction my mom is going. Sorry, dude
07:30:52 <CraigC> but good that it is going better
07:31:38 <ynpvisitor76> They all break things wherever they go, remember the obama visit?
07:31:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Keep a close eye on her. We have had a few surprises how sneaky those old folks can get.
07:32:35 <Kevin L™🌵> I was stuck in the park during the Nixon visit. NOT fun.
07:33:19 <CraigC> ynpvisitor76, I don't, I'm pretty new to this live streaming awareness of things going on in YNP
07:34:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Frankly I am surprised that they don't do the speech live on the cam.
07:35:00 <CraigC> I goggled for live coverage, only thing I can find is live stream at the West airport of the landing
07:35:04 <ynpvisitor3> I agree, I wonder what their reasoning is, for "security"
07:36:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Someone is going to jump through the cam?
07:36:23 <CraigC> LOL
07:36:58 <CraigC> imagine it's a control issue thing
07:38:17 <Kevin L™🌵> I know they can connect to it with another cam and with sound. It was done from the roof of the Inn when the cam was in the tree.
08:22:27 <Nicolaus C.> Can't believe I'm getting the superheavy elements again
08:23:26 <Nicolaus C.> There's a restaurant named Element 112 in Sylvania, Ohio.
08:23:33 <Nicolaus C.> http://www.element112restaurant.com/
08:24:28 <CraigC> hey Jimbo
08:26:58 <Nicolaus C.> Hi CraigC
08:36:15 <ynpvisitor50> webcam "up" but I have spinning circle
08:36:25 <ynpvisitor50> spoke too soon
08:37:15 <Sam> Ah yes. Pence is speaking today.
08:37:38 <CraigC> they havent closed west gate
08:38:26 <Katie> CraigC, I so hope they don't. The impact on SO many visitors is so great if they close the West gate!
08:38:27 <Sam> Were they planning on closing west gate? I didn't see that.
08:38:46 <Sam> Katie, agreed
08:38:51 <Katie> Sam, that was grapevine, not officially published notice.
08:38:55 <CraigC> I thought I read that they were closing it at 8 am
08:39:12 <Sam> The VEC was closed at 8
08:39:48 <ynpvisitor50> OF
08:39:55 <CraigC> no camop?
08:39:57 <Sam> But they open at 8, so I guess it's more like they're not opening till later this afternoon.
08:40:29 <Katie> I'm here (camop) but I can't get control and having spinning wheel on this display
08:40:37 <Sam> This eruption is more fluffy
08:40:58 <Katie> Alright, if you are seeing, I'm reloading.l.
08:41:07 <CraigC> Katie, yeah
08:42:45 <Sam> I did not quit
08:43:46 <Katie> I just flat can't login - like it's failing on my credentials
08:44:15 <Katie> Tried on two different computers
08:44:21 <Sam> The light is combining with the steam on static which makes it look huge
08:44:37 <CraigC> text CC, see if she released
08:44:47 <Kevin L™🌵> They probably locked us out and this is the view.
08:45:12 <Katie> Kevin L™🌵, that seems likely.
08:45:27 <Sam> What time is the speech slated to start?
08:45:50 <CraigC> was that 2 people in the background or a bear?
08:46:06 <CraigC> obviously not a bear, someone just walked the other way LOL
08:46:17 <Sam> CraigC, I would hope people LOL
08:46:47 <Jake> will the speech be televised somewhere?
08:46:48 <CraigC> with the lighting, all you can see our their legs against those trees
08:47:07 <CraigC> Jake, I googled and coudlnt find anything, just live coverage of the landing in West
08:47:17 <CraigC> are, not our
08:49:18 <Jake> with all the pomp & circumstance, I hope they left a few bolts out of the stage setup to represent the $1B infrastructure maintenance backlog in the NPS
08:49:34 <Sam> I just found the speech is about rebuilding infrastructure.
08:50:16 <Jake> cool, the stage should fall apart then! photo op! get me a PR job!
08:50:26 <CraigC> LOL
08:50:29 <Sam> Hahaha
08:50:37 <ynpvisitor3> is it 1Billion Jake? wow
08:51:20 <Jake> no, I was wrong: https://www.nps.gov/subjects/infrastructure/deferred-maintenance.htm
08:51:50 <Sam> Yikes
08:52:20 <ynpvisitor54> West Gate Closed?
08:52:24 <ynpvisitor54> Interesting views on Static
08:52:50 <Sam> I don't think West Gate is closed?
08:53:03 <Jake> I drop a 1. It's an $11.6 billion deferred maintenance backlog
08:53:39 <Sam> Ooooh, NE Washburn static is beautiful
08:53:42 <Jake> equally split ~$6B for roads, ~$6B for facilities for those that didn't click the link....
08:54:08 <ynpvisitor3> thanks Jake
08:55:06 <Katie> Have any vehicles at West moved?
08:55:31 <Sam> Static just updated, and yes cars are moving.
08:55:40 <ynpvisitor54> Yup just saw motorcycles move
08:55:46 <ynpvisitor54> So guessing still open
08:56:25 <Sam> Like mentioned earlier, I doubt West will close. That's a huge entrance gate that totally mess up the flow into the park.
08:56:28 <Katie> Okay, I guess I was mistaking one motorhome for another. ;)
08:56:37 <ynpvisitor54> West Entrance - Heading into the Park
08:56:41 <ynpvisitor54> Still shows folks heading in
08:58:03 <Jake> shutting down the West Gate seems like overkill
08:58:25 <Jake> I assume they're going to helicopter to OF?
08:58:44 <Sam> Jake, that'd make the most sense
08:58:47 <Katie> Katie did not quite
08:59:01 <Katie> *quit
08:59:02 <Katie> sheesh
08:59:14 <CraigC> one of my FB friends in West reported a military chopper over West yesterday
08:59:31 <ynpvisitor54> Can't remember where I heard that they were thinking about closing West Gate
09:00:02 <ynpvisitor3> I remember the Obama visit - think they landed at Black Sand Basin
09:00:56 <Sam> Has Trump visited Yellowstone as president?
09:01:11 <Jake> next OF at 1015 then ~1145 then ~1315
09:01:46 <ynpvisitor54> Sam, No golf courses nearby so no
09:01:56 <CraigC> is there a golf course in YNP? ;)
09:01:57 <Jake> if they're not there by the 1145 OF I expect they won't make it out by 2pm
09:02:03 <Sam> ynpvisitor54, LOL oh goodness
09:02:03 <CraigC> 54 beat me to it
09:02:08 <Jake> Yosemite has a golf course
09:02:14 <ynpvisitor3> good answer ynpvisitor54 :D
09:02:14 <Jake> so does Death Valley
09:02:15 <ynpvisitor54> There's a helicopter landing pad near the clinic I belive
09:02:31 <ynpvisitor3> is it 1Billion Jake? wow
09:02:54 <Jake> there is a helipad by the clinic but maybe they leave that open for emergencies?
09:03:09 <ynpvisitor3> whoa - typed that long ago and it came back.
09:05:00 <Sam> My cat is LOVING all of the birds outside my porch today
09:06:30 <Jake> where is the closest golf course to Yellowstone?
09:06:38 <Jake> Jackson must have one
09:07:42 <Jake> Island Park and Big Sky and Jackson
09:08:09 <Sam> Just googled, and looks like there's also one in the Tetons
09:08:19 <Sam> Or yeah, Jackson
09:10:10 <CraigC> ranger mtg on static
09:11:14 <Sam> Wonder what they're talking about
09:11:50 <CraigC> they're probably talking about golf courses ;)
09:12:02 <CraigC> hey Lori
09:12:02 <Lori S> Look at the west gate on static
09:12:21 <Lori S> Hi Craig
09:12:40 <Sam> Pretty busy for a Thursday morning
09:13:16 <Jake> I've never seen 5 LEOs in one place
09:14:02 <Lori S> Sam, It started at 7 am today becaue the word got out about the VP
09:14:53 <Lori S> But it's about to get worse. No traffic to backed up to Faithful Street on Hwy 20 yet. Just lloked.
09:15:06 <Lori S> *looked
09:15:23 <Nicolaus C.> What's a LEO? My agency calls that "Low Earth Orbit" :D
09:15:52 <Katie> Law Enforcement Officer
09:16:31 <Nicolaus C.> Ahh. My next guess was "Lane Enforcement Object", otherwise known as a traffic cone
09:16:53 <Lori S> I should clarify, it got busy early most likely cuz all the local staff told folks to get in early.
09:17:38 <Sam> Nicolaus C., LOL
09:17:50 <Nicolaus C.> :thumbsup:
09:17:59 <Sam> It's currently traffic cone season here
09:18:24 <Sam> I'm starting a petition for the Traffic Cone to become our next state flower
09:18:26 <Nicolaus C.> And LED could stand for "Lane Enforcement Device", so it could get really confusing
09:18:31 <Nicolaus C.> >(>(
09:19:09 <CraigC> at least we have gazers logging stuff in basin
09:19:11 <Sam> They usually bloom in early March and peak in July
09:19:16 <Nicolaus C.> You know that there actually is an orange coneflower, right?
09:19:30 <Sam> Haha, yes.
09:19:51 <Nicolaus C.> Prettier than the plastic kind that grows on roads
09:19:58 <Sam> Last in-basin was LC
09:20:32 <Sam> The webcam needs to make up its mind.
09:22:56 <Lori S> Nice HYB on the OF static. Wonder which driver got that duty. Micah? ;)
09:24:30 <Sam> I did not quit
09:24:57 <ynpvisitor11> They built a fence for the event ?
09:25:40 <Lori S> ynpvisitor11, Assembled. Looks temporary.
09:27:04 <ynpvisitor11> Well yes, a temporary fence.
09:28:00 <ynpvisitor11> The people are far left on static
09:28:21 <Lori S> oh, sorry, took that literally
09:28:44 <Lori S> :p
09:28:47 <ynpvisitor11> I see streaming is still up, yet being it’s usual self
09:29:42 <CraigC> Lori S, did you see any helicopters over West yesterday?
09:31:08 <Lori S> Heard 2. Saw 1.
09:31:30 <Lori S> Have the door open to listen for AF2
09:32:04 <ynpvisitor11> Would be nice if BH went early
09:32:36 <CraigC> Lori S, this FB page will stream landing; https://www.facebook.com/WakeUpMontana/
09:34:02 <Lori S> CraigC, :thumbsup:
09:34:04 <ynpvisitor11> Why is cam on OF? Not in window. Is there a cam op?
09:35:56 <Lori S> Now I have 4 windows open for this shin dig. Plus 4 more for work. LOL
09:39:43 <Eric> I see our cam is working as normal today
09:40:00 <CraigC> ynpvisitor11, camop wasn't able to login
09:40:03 <Nicolaus C.> Yes, it's a SNAFU
09:40:08 <CraigC> hey Eric
09:42:33 <ynpvisitor54> BH on static?
09:43:07 <Eric> yep and on GT
09:43:23 <CraigC> :bee:
09:43:32 <Eric> and we are still staring at OF cone
09:43:34 <Eric> oh well
09:47:11 <ynpvisitor82> Tragic, cam is up and we missed BH
09:47:31 <Eric> Yep, I assume we are stuck here until 2pm
09:48:16 <ynpvisitor82> No Indy posted
09:48:43 <Jake> GT Prediction for speech time: 1200 - 1500
09:49:13 <ynpvisitor3> Imagine being visitors coming on your bucket list YNP trip and you can't get into the VEC
09:49:41 <ynpvisitor82> Stopping traffic at West Gate could get interesting.
09:50:10 <ynpvisitor82> Full on gate crowd right now
09:51:57 <Lori S> ynpvisitor82, Yup. Waiting for the backup on Hwy 20 from where I sit at work.
09:52:06 <ynpvisitor3> maybe a busload of visitors will ignore the closures - happens elsewhere!
09:52:17 <Lori S> I went to check a leaky toilet and I missed Bee on static. Harumph.
09:52:31 <Eric> Someone tell the secret service guy...no dogs on BW!
09:52:48 <Jake> Beehive is essentially Mother Nature's leaky toilet
09:52:57 <Lori S> hehe
09:53:01 <Jake> you first, Eric
09:53:14 <Eric> Hey secret service guy...No Dogs on BW!
09:53:22 <Eric> They are probably reading our chat!
09:53:55 <Jake> hmmm
09:55:02 <Anonymous!> I changed my name so they wont know who I am!
09:55:36 <CraigC> LOL
09:56:09 <Eric> Good Call Rice
09:56:35 <Anonymous!> Thanks Eric, you just blew my cover.
09:56:48 <ynpvisitor82> I hope the bison delay the entourage
09:56:56 <Secret Agent> Nobody is here reading these chats...continue on.
09:57:14 <CraigC> bison get airborne?
09:57:41 <ynpvisitor3> And a bus of people from a certain country behaving badly at the bison jam
09:57:42 <Secret Agent> Secret service is starting to bunch up at stage...I assume things are starting to get ready
09:58:38 <Anonymous!> Here is something serious..
09:59:17 <Anonymous!> I finally brought my Geyesr of Yellowstone book to work, and I noticed that the Geyser Times, page references are not right for the new edition.
09:59:29 <CraigC> landed; https://www.facebook.com/WakeUpMontana/videos/2680303562196406/
10:00:16 <CraigC> their live stream must be through pixelcaster, too
10:00:52 <ynpvisitor82> Looks like they are cutting off traffic at West Gate
10:01:38 <Not A Spy> based on what? the car lines are still moving
10:01:49 <ynpvisitor54> https://www.nps.gov/customcf/webcam/dsp_webcam_image.cfm?id=81B468D6-1DD8-B71B-0B9C2E324EF5F9F8
10:01:57 <ynpvisitor82> I wonder what they will do with all the cars?
10:01:57 <ynpvisitor54> View into the gate, still cars heading in
10:02:18 <ynpvisitor82> Look at the ends of the lines
10:03:04 <ynpvisitor54> But my guess is they shut down the road IF they're driving in
10:03:18 <ynpvisitor54> They did that here last visit, just closed the entire highway
10:03:28 <ynpvisitor54> So they could have a clear shot the whole way in
10:03:31 <Anonymous 54> I hear helicopter
10:03:38 <ynpvisitor54> Here = YNP
10:03:43 <ynpvisitor54> DOES NOT EQUAL
10:04:02 <ynpvisitor54> Forgot there's no != logical operator in chat ;)
10:05:33 <ynpvisitor82> Indy did show up after BH started
10:06:32 <ynpvisitor82> I’m surprised they let cars in this late at West Gate
10:06:46 <Anonymous 54> Lots of activity in the air.
10:06:59 <ynpvisitor54> Yeah so last time something big like this happened where we lived, they shut down the roads about 10-15 minutes before the motorcade
10:07:19 <ynpvisitor54> Tow truck turning around at west entrance
10:08:46 <ynpvisitor82> they’ve cut off traffic
10:09:12 <Not A Spy> the logistics of doing this makes my head hurt and this is probably a relatively simple public appearance
10:09:20 <ynpvisitor82> Will be weird to see the gate empty at this time of day
10:10:35 <ynpvisitor82> The roads in West are not multiple lanes
10:11:33 <Sam> Back
10:11:44 <ynpvisitor82> I’m guessing they come in the boundary road
10:11:47 <Lori S> another helicopter overhead
10:11:53 <Sam> Dumb question, are they gonna stop updating OF static?
10:12:07 <ynpvisitor82> Yes Sam
10:12:10 <Secret Agent> I think it's stuck where it is
10:12:18 <Secret Agent> ohh, the static cam
10:12:34 <Secret Agent> Why would they turn that off? They are broadcasting the event....seems silly
10:12:39 <ynpvisitor82> I’m wondering if they will turn off West Gate soon
10:12:56 <Sam> Thanks 82. I see it's still updating right now though.
10:13:04 <CraigC> Secret Agent, where are they broadcasting it through
10:13:26 <Lori S> Sucks to be the first in line at the blockage
10:14:04 <Sam> Last few cars at West
10:14:06 <Secret Agent> I assume they are using the internal yellowstone administrative network.
10:14:09 <ynpvisitor3> good question - that would take news trucks to follow him everywhere
10:14:24 <ynpvisitor82> Think how many folks have no idea what is going on
10:14:29 <Secret Agent> Yep...road is closed I think now
10:14:54 <Sam> That RV must feel pretty lucky
10:15:14 <Sam> Or is that a minibus
10:15:23 <Sam> Regardless!
10:15:26 <Secret Agent> bus
10:15:26 <ynpvisitor82> Bus
10:15:45 <ynpvisitor999> morning all
10:15:54 <Sam> Hi Jarno
10:16:00 <Not A Spy> this seems like an opportune time to recall the time I missed seeing Chuck Norris when I worked in YNP
10:16:15 <ynpvisitor82> You will not see this again at 1015, West Gate empty
10:16:32 <Not A Spy> traffic stops automatically for Chuck Norris
10:16:55 <Lori S> Headed out to watch Hwy 20 back up. BRB
10:16:58 <Sam> Or does Chuck Norris automatically stop traffic?
10:17:25 <Secret Agent> Yep, west gate camera is down
10:17:31 <Secret Agent> ohh, maybe not
10:18:00 <ynpvisitor82> Hopefully they leave it up
10:18:00 <Sam> OF on static
10:18:17 <Sam> Pretty picture
10:18:48 <ynpvisitor82> Except for the fake log stage in front of it
10:19:03 <Sam> ynpvisitor82, Let's look past that lol
10:19:16 <Sam> But I agree
10:19:38 <ynpvisitor999> now would be an opportune moment for Giantess to go, and then preferably one with a very, very loud steam phase. Wonder what they'll do then
10:19:39 <Not A Spy> I wonder how far the circular boardwalk is blocked off on the right
10:19:42 <ynpvisitor82> Let’s see if West Gate updates
10:19:44 <ynpvisitor37> Static Down
10:19:53 <Not A Spy> think of the noon OF crowd on half the boardwalk space
10:20:08 <ynpvisitor37> Not down...
10:20:12 <ynpvisitor70> Google Maps traffic is showing that all traffic is stopped close to where 191 crosses Madison River, east of West Gate
10:20:34 <ynpvisitor82> They won’t have the crowd as they are closing parking lots
10:20:58 <Not A Spy> oh, right
10:21:29 <ynpvisitor82> What about highway 20?
10:21:52 <ynpvisitor37> Who let the dogs out??
10:22:07 <ynpvisitor82> That stopping point is before the airport entrance
10:23:30 <ynpvisitor70> https://www.google.com/maps/@44.658785,-110.9593941,8247m/data=!3m1!1e3!5m1!1e1?hl=en
10:23:40 <ynpvisitor82> I’m thinking West Gate cam is down
10:23:44 <ynpvisitor70> Could be a buffalo jam
10:24:54 <Sam> ynpvisitor82, I don't think it's down, my timestamps are still changing.
10:24:58 <Not A Spy> google also showing major slowdown around 7-mil bridge
10:25:26 <Not A Spy> that might be normal for this time of day though as I don't look at YNP traffic maps often :D
10:25:42 <Sam> Usually at this time of day, West Gate is packed
10:25:50 <ynpvisitor82> Cars aren’t moving
10:25:50 <Sam> So not quite normal ;)
10:26:22 <ynpvisitor70> Fishing Bridge appears to be closed also
10:26:28 <Sam> ynpvisitor82, Workers may just not be letting them into the park
10:27:26 <ynpvisitor82> I mean the same cars are on static at West Gate
10:27:30 <Not A Spy> the studio host on Wake Up Montana looks like he could be Will B's brother
10:27:48 <ynpvisitor82> For 10 minutes now
10:28:01 <ynpvisitor70> Is that a vehicle procession at West?
10:28:02 <Sam> Right, but there's been people walking around and they've been moving
10:28:27 <ynpvisitor82> Hmmm, haven’t seen that
10:28:41 <ynpvisitor82> Oh here they come
10:28:54 <ynpvisitor82> In the out gate?
10:29:04 <Sam> Yes
10:29:16 <ynpvisitor82> So they stopped those last folks
10:29:17 <ynpvisitor70> And they're gone, through the gate? How long to get to OF
10:29:39 <Not A Spy> 45 minutes for a civilian under decent traffic conditions
10:29:39 <ynpvisitor82> Ha, depends on traffic
10:30:27 <ynpvisitor70> Maybe they'll make the 11:50 showtime, and then be gone
10:31:22 <Not A Spy> leaked speech:
10:31:39 <ynpvisitor70> Google traffic needs cell-phone reception to work, so no telling were else in the Park there are traffic jams
10:31:40 <ynpvisitor82> I wonder how long they will hold traffic
10:31:55 <Not A Spy> "National Parks are good. Infrastructure upgrades are important. Thank you."
10:32:40 <ynpvisitor70> Someone should have brought a Rainbow flag - just sayin'
10:32:42 <ynpvisitor86> Chuck Norris is new head of NPS LE.
10:32:46 <Not A Spy> right, Google is a good proxy for where people get cell service
10:33:21 <ynpvisitor70> Traffic is back as West!
10:33:43 <Lori S> They stopped traffic along Canyon but it seems to be moving again. That was fun.
10:34:00 <Lori S> No back up so well manged so far.
10:34:01 <Not A Spy> "Today, I am proud to announce, in front of this American Icon smoking behind me, that I am naming Chuck Norris as head of all National Park Law Enforcement."
10:34:58 <ynpvisitor> Where is my MAGA hat when I need it?
10:35:13 <ynpvisitor70> Make a Geyser Again?
10:35:20 <Not A Spy> "And, with God as my witness, I vow to never have Old Faithful erupt late ever again!" *thunderous applause*
10:35:41 <ynpvisitor70> :D
10:36:00 <ynpvisitor999> *OF erupts outside of its window, with a 2h+ interval*
10:36:20 <CraigC> ;)
10:36:47 <ynpvisitor37> No movement at West...
10:36:55 <ynpvisitor82> If they don’t hustle they will miss the next OF!
10:37:00 <ynpvisitor999> *OF, during eruption: You ain't gonna determine what I have to do, you idiot*
10:37:17 <ynpvisitor82> Will they wait for the next one?
10:37:55 <ynpvisitor82> What happens when he comes out?
10:38:04 <ynpvisitor70> My urgent UPS delivery is stuck as West Gate
10:38:13 <ynpvisitor82> How do they hold traffic?
10:38:34 <ynpvisitor> Lots of black SUV's
10:38:42 <ynpvisitor82> Looks like the mini bus moved
10:39:13 <ynpvisitor37> The large black bus moved...
10:39:14 <Not A Spy> "The previous administrations' efforts to delay eruptions of this geezer are a thing of the past. America is the greatest country in the world with our God-given landscapes and this geezer deserves its exceptional spoutings to be seen by the American People."
10:39:44 <ynpvisitor70> MAGA - Make America Gaze Again
10:40:00 <ynpvisitor> Snipers on top of the Inn will impress the Chinese. Well maybe not as they are used to things like that.
10:41:06 <ynpvisitor70> Enjoy VP, time for lunch...
10:41:07 <ynpvisitor82> OF static down
10:43:15 <CraigC> :$:
10:45:43 <ynpvisitor> Did they have to fix the streaming cam before they shut it off?
10:45:48 <Lori S> They stopped traffic at the intersections temporarily to open the road for the motorcade. As far as i could tell from 3 blocks away.
10:47:02 <Sam> Well, I'm off for a while. Have fun.
10:47:38 <ynpvisitor999> cya Sam
10:47:54 <ynpvisitor> Got to feel for those that paid for a room and can not walk around.
10:47:57 <Not A Spy> "It is time for us to come together and agree that Rift does not delay Grand. That there is no Geyser Hill Wave. That Giant is indeed dormant. Only then can we truly achieve the greatness to which we all inspire."
10:49:02 <ynpvisitor> That sounds like a obama speech, except no apology for taking the park from the Indians.
10:54:00 <ynpvisitor46> I don't think I understand this? Fox could broadcast it live but we cannot see it static? I have no interest I am just curious.
10:54:04 <Secret Agent> I am glad that they have some good webcam privacy for this event
10:54:21 <Secret Agent> It doesn't make any sense 46
10:54:46 <Secret Agent> It's all about control and appearance of security
10:54:53 <ynpvisitor91> They don't want us to see anyone Cone Walking
10:55:02 <Lori S> haha
10:55:06 <Not A Spy> it's probably standard protocol for all events like this?
10:55:21 <Lori S> Look at the West Gate now
10:55:25 <Secret Agent> They don't want people calling the VEC to tell them a dog is on the BW
10:55:43 <Secret Agent> Ohh, and the drug sniffing one too
10:58:11 <Not A Spy> *bomb sniffing
10:58:43 <Not A Spy> I wonder how many funky smells that dog has to deal with there!
10:58:52 <Not A Spy> since Yellowstone is somewhat of a giant bomb
10:59:19 <Lori S> I saw the trailer with boat on the webcam at Hwy 20 and Canyon about 45 minutes ago!
11:00:04 <Not A Spy> stalker!
11:00:24 <Lori S> Not A Spy, Haha on both the smeals and me stalking
11:00:31 <Lori S> *smells
11:01:13 <Not A Spy> they shut webcams down because of people like you
11:02:11 <Secret Agent> Infrastructure plan....hard to do when it takes you 3 months to replace a small section of BW!
11:04:39 <Secret Agent> Call the VEC and ask for Mr. Pence
11:04:59 <ynpvisitor46> It would have been better if they faked this in the warehouse in Dallas where they faked the moon landing.
11:05:15 <Secret Agent> It's true....we did!
11:05:42 <CraigC> :i::i:
11:08:04 <CraigC> has anyone found a link to any live coverage?
11:09:48 <ynpvisitor37> not yet
11:14:48 <Secret Agent> This event has been shut to the public due to threat of rainbows. We have water and sunshine in the same area and Mr. Pence does not want video footage of himself and ANY rainbows!
11:15:02 <ynpvisitor37> Hahaha!
11:15:09 <Lori S> *snicker*
11:15:21 <Secret Agent> Once Mr. Pence leaves the area, we will resume webcam coverage and rainbows can commence.
11:15:40 <CraigC> :drizzle:
11:17:06 <ynpvisitor46> Large tarps are the answer. If they can tarp the USS John McCain they can tarp Old Faithful.
11:21:40 <CraigC> it was 10:28 as they passed West Gate... shouldn't they be there about now?
11:22:17 <CraigC> maybe he wanted a selfie at Grand Prismatic
11:22:36 <Lori S> CraigC, well, they did have traffic ahead of them and are driving by full lots at the basins on the way. And wildlife.
11:23:04 <ynpvisitor68> maybe he stopped to see Grand Prismatic
11:23:52 <Not A Spy> or to see some Pence-temon
11:23:59 <CraigC> I would think LEOs would be out in force clearing a path. I have watched Tour of Utah bike races for a decade and UHP keeps all the public roads clear flawlessly for a bunch of cyclists
11:25:07 <Not A Spy> gotta be difficult so many foreign drivers and people deathly afraid of being on the shoulder by rivers and cliffs
11:26:15 <CraigC> true, I watch foreign drivers freak out at the new 3-way stop at Madison, some get completely frozen about when is their turn to go
11:27:57 <ynpvisitor68> its all new to them, so they are just confused like american tourists
11:30:24 <Secret Agent> When I was stuck at the gas station at West a couple weeks ago, I was amazed watching foreign tourists attempting to fill up their rental cars.
11:30:46 <Secret Agent> I would never, ever be a gas attendant in west!
11:52:32 <ynpvisitor68> backup didnt take long to clear at West ... as long as its not being held up again
11:53:27 <ynpvisitor68> i see Aurum snuck in while we couldnt watch
12:35:13 <Secret Agent> Are they done yet?
12:49:14 <Nicolaus C.> Ssh, it's a secret, Secret Agent Man
12:49:31 <Secret Agent> Apparently DOI secretary is going to "tour" yellowstone with Pence....horrible day to be in the park!
12:49:51 <Nicolaus C.> Looking for oil, probably.
12:49:56 <ynpvisitor20> beyond OF?
12:50:01 <Craig M> maybe the bears will be out
12:50:26 <ynpvisitor20> may their bison jams be MANY
12:50:31 <Secret Agent> I guess so...some talk show had interior secretary on it.
12:50:53 <Secret Agent> I just want them to leave OF area so we can watch cam again :-P
12:51:46 <Secret Agent> I see they parked one of the yellow tour buses next to the podium....they should have gotten micah's bus ;-P
12:52:01 <Secret Agent> It's way more "classic" :-D
12:52:22 <Craig M> camera down for everyone else too?
12:52:47 <Secret Agent> Yep...until Mr. Pence leaves the OF area
12:52:55 <Secret Agent> Static is down too
12:53:06 <Craig M> Oh actually? That's amazing
13:00:45 <Secret Agent> At least some people are enjoying their time in the basin :-D
13:05:29 <ynpvisitor3> wonder what the conspiracy nuts will say about this outage
13:07:56 <ynpvisitor999> I bet it will be along the lines of "Pence' 'visit' USED as excuse to install MORE MONITORING EQUIPMENT. Yellowstone IS going to EXPLODE"
13:08:01 <Craig M> ynpvisitor3 obviously Pence is checking the status of the supervolcano and is going to find eruption imminent
13:08:07 <Craig M> ^^^JUST beat me 999 lol
13:09:00 <ynpvisitor3> haha. Yep. They are showing him the cracks with lava coming out.
13:18:21 <ynpvisitor999> static up
13:31:59 <CraigC> OF on static
13:32:22 <ynpvisitor65> Nice
13:32:31 <Katie> Crowd on boardwalk - must have reopened it
13:33:44 <LindaG> So is cam down because its down or they didnt bring it up. Hmmmm
13:37:04 <Katie> Looks like static was turned back on at 13:21
13:37:15 <Katie> Just a few minutes ago...
13:37:39 <ynpvisitor999> that'd be 1317/1318, actually, as static is still fast
13:41:22 <ynpvisitor999> OF static
13:42:49 <LindaG> Washburn looks nice on static, cant wait to get up there myself
13:49:16 <Eric> Looks like they changed some of the settings on the static cam...but still didn't fix the clock!
13:49:55 <Eric> Should have had one of the high tech secret service guys fix that!
13:52:38 <LindaG> Seems to be less to view on left
13:52:59 <LindaG> Or maybe I imagining it
13:53:29 <LindaG> Hey action
13:53:32 <LindaG> Up
13:54:13 <Eric> Can we get a camop...woop woop
13:54:31 <LindaG> Kevin's shift
13:55:06 <LindaG> I can take until he shows up
13:55:24 <Eric> Yep, we will not see BH or BHI now on static :-(
13:55:50 <LindaG> Hmmm wont let me in
13:56:01 <Eric> maybe admin has control still
13:56:16 <LindaG> They may have cam blocked somehow
14:19:19 <ynpvisitor55> Crazy they won’t give controls back
14:19:59 <Joe> Linda, I cannot log in either, sent DaveK an Email
14:20:36 <LindaG> Yeah maybe he has control
14:21:15 <LindaG> It's always something
14:34:57 <Joe> Linda you will be able to log in soon
14:36:10 <Joe> You can now
14:36:36 <Eric> woot...camop away!
14:36:46 <Eric> Thank you!
14:37:02 <ynpvisitor999®> perhaps just in time for Rocket
14:37:13 <Joe> And Daisy
14:37:13 <ynpvisitor999®> seems like a two-pronged plume there
14:37:36 <Eric> we are right at about an hour
14:37:45 <Eric> but grotto was ie
14:38:23 <LindaG> I have it
14:38:28 <ynpvisitor999®> can you zoom in to Grotto for a second, Linda?
14:39:34 <ynpvisitor999®> hm, can't see jetting in that column. Thanks anyway :)
14:39:34 <Eric> We should have daisy in the next 10-15 minutes
14:39:57 <Eric> or maybe 15-20 minutes is more accurate
14:40:48 <LindaG> So this isnt my shift its Kevin's shift. I'll stay onto until next shift unless Kevin shows up.
14:42:27 <Eric> Thank you.
14:42:56 <Eric> You are a gift to us virtual gazers :-D
14:43:21 <LindaGp> 😊👍
14:43:24 <Joe> the static cam stinks!
14:43:32 <ynpvisitor55> Kevin said he would not be here
14:43:33 <Eric> I can't smell it
14:43:58 <LindaGp> I think Kevin had appts
14:44:04 <Eric> But I do dislike the new zoom/color/positioning
14:44:19 <Joe> get real cclos to yuur monitor :)
14:44:21 <ynpvisitor55> How quickly the stage comes down
14:44:37 <Eric> I hope someone Dave...if you are listening...can adjust it back and fix the time while they are at it
14:44:44 <ynpvisitor55> What is different?
14:44:56 <Eric> Zoomed in more...can't see BHI/BH anymore
14:45:05 <ynpvisitor55> Other than now being 5 minutes ahead
14:45:25 <ynpvisitor55> Oh, not good
14:45:37 <Eric> Old View: https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/06132019/432.jpg
14:45:45 <Eric> New View: https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/06132019/527.jpg
14:46:26 <ynpvisitor55> Whoever restarted it might have thought it was the better view
14:46:37 <LindaGp> Looks like they centered OF
14:46:45 <ynpvisitor55> I bet a call to the VEC could change it back
14:46:59 <ynpvisitor55> They changed it before...
14:47:13 <ynpvisitor999®> not necessarily change it back, but just a nudge or so to the left would be helpful
14:47:33 <LindaGp> I think it is zoomed in. Cause you lost some of tree on right also
14:48:13 <ynpvisitor55> OF not centered so that was not what they were going for
14:48:24 <Eric> Hmmm, but they did increase the resolution of the image..probably the default 1920x1080
14:48:49 <Eric> I assume they wanted it smaller for easier storage, transfer
14:48:49 <ynpvisitor55> Too bad the storm did not rain down on the VIPs
14:49:02 <Eric> Lightning would have been nice
14:49:47 <Eric> Would be great if they left it 1920x1080 and zoomed out with more BH in the picture :-D
14:49:49 <KittyM> :D
14:50:14 <LindaGp> KittyM, hi
14:50:26 <Eric> Just localized though...like a pig pen cloud
14:51:38 <Eric> https://media1.tenor.com/images/4f082bfcec42f990dbfeec2074fd2ec9/tenor.gif?itemid=5131221
14:51:45 <Eric> I guess it was just charlie brown
14:53:12 <ynpvisitor999®> sigh...
14:53:22 <LindaGp> OF course it is
14:53:42 <LindaGp> Daisy
14:55:00 <LindaGp> Hi kat
14:56:55 <Kat> Hey Linda...
14:57:10 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
14:57:13 <LindaGp> Lion
14:57:22 <ynpvisitor999®> I think maybe hopefully
14:57:43 <LindaGp> Looks like just starting
14:57:58 <ynpvisitor999®> slow start (and falling back to below cone) indicates initial
14:57:58 <LindaGp> Kat, standing in for kevin
14:58:16 <LindaGp> Frozen on lion
14:58:59 <Craig M> Camping supplies purchased
14:58:59 <LindaGp> Recreah
14:59:08 <LindaGp> Refresh
14:59:22 <Kat> Nice!
14:59:42 <Craig M> Gonna leave Monday!
14:59:53 <Craig M> Unexpected 3 weeks off
15:00:35 <LindaGp> Craig M, where ya going?
15:00:58 <Kat> Linda, I thought Kevin might be out this afternoon, so much going on. I can take over around 5:30 is you like.
15:01:08 <Kat> if*
15:01:24 <Craig M> Linda i'm going to try and get a campsite in norris
15:01:46 <Craig M> My europe trip was cut short unexpectedly due to almost comically dumb reasons.
15:02:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Joe, this Lion can be marked as 'ini'. Its been 5 minutes and it's still going
15:02:31 <ynpvisitor999®> It's*
15:02:33 <LindaGp> Nice maybe we'll see each other at OF
15:03:25 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie/ns
15:03:27 <LindaGp> Little cub
15:04:26 <ynpvisitor109> so no Europe trip?
15:05:50 <ynpvisitor999®> and Ye Ol'e Fluffball wants to have some attention
15:06:48 <LindaGp> Kat, that sounds good
15:07:54 <ynpvisitor109> is cam fixed?
15:08:10 <ynpvisitor66> Not right now for me :(
15:08:30 <ynpvisitor109> no Webcam failing posts
15:08:50 <ynpvisitor109> refresh 66, it is up
15:09:05 <ynpvisitor999®> next Lion will likely be @ 1613±5m
15:09:08 <LindaGp> OF
15:09:11 <ynpvisitor66> It may be my browser. I have Daisy ie.
15:09:30 <ynpvisitor57> same here #66
15:09:47 <ynpvisitor109> refresh and get to the new screen
15:10:04 <ynpvisitor999®> refreshing the whole page should, in theory, fix it
15:10:19 <ynpvisitor109> I had to refresh a couple of times
15:10:23 <ynpvisitor66> Didn't help. I will close out and then come back in
15:10:23 <ynpvisitor57> don't fix it here
15:10:38 <ynpvisitor999®> peculiar
15:10:44 <Kat> Linda - that's 5:30 our time..:)
15:10:59 <LindaGp> ☺ yup
15:11:19 <ynpvisitor42> 57 do shift F5
15:11:37 <ynpvisitor57> I closed tab and started in new tab, same picture, Daisy ie
15:11:39 <ynpvisitor109> also try refreshing in chat room settings
15:11:56 <ynpvisitor109> reload the page from there
15:12:22 <ynpvisitor109> closing and opening is not the same as refreshing while on the page
15:12:37 <ynpvisitor57> ctrl/f5 I got pic of OF and spinning circle.
15:12:41 <ynpvisitor109> oops there it is, the dreaded failing sign
15:12:53 <ynpvisitor109> that is because cam is down now
15:12:58 <ynpvisitor109> so you succeeded
15:15:03 <ynpvisitor57> another ctrl/f5 and it seem to run about 3 seconds, then spinning circle again.
15:15:32 <ynpvisitor57> oh well I will try later.
15:15:50 <ynpvisitor42> cam is still down
15:16:21 <ynpvisitor42> and now up for a bit
15:17:05 <LindaGp> I guess beehive already happened
15:17:23 <Eric> This morning...while webcam was till up!

15:18:28 <Kat> I think we all did!

15:23:55 <LindaGp> Not able to access cam at the moment
15:24:49 <Craig M> 109 I was on said europe trip but it was cut extremely short
15:26:09 <LindaGp> Kat, might as well try and take cam while it's up

15:34:00 <Kat> Can't get in yet!!
15:36:09 <LindaGp> Not staying up long enough
15:37:23 <LindaGp> I saw it move! 😊
15:37:29 <Kat> Wonder how long this will go on tonight,,,,
15:38:10 <LindaGp> Tell about 7-7:30 then it seems to heal. That is what has been happening.
15:38:30 <Eric> It was up and down all last night too
15:38:40 <LindaGp> Oh boo

15:51:02 <Kat> Still very frustrating :D
15:51:46 <Eric> I can't image Trump ever staying on Paele island like Carter did!
15:52:10 <Eric> Jimmy Carter...a president who wanted to stay in the wilderness!
15:52:23 <Eric> Who actually loved his country!
15:54:15 <Lori S> Did you all see that Sarah Sanders is leaving her position at the end of the month?
15:55:19 <Kat> It's about time...
15:56:36 <Lori S> But why now?
15:57:17 <Kat> Maybe Fox made her an offer she couldn't refuse??? :p
15:57:28 <GO MORNING> trump said she has had 3.5y at the white hours ... hum, was she there for a year of Obama admin?
15:57:44 <Kat> Moron!!!
16:01:04 <Lori S> Why did Pence visit instead of Trump?
16:02:48 <GO MORNING> no golf course nearby
16:03:01 <Lori S> Big Sky

16:06:51 <Kat1> Cam worse tonight!!
16:09:31 <Kat1> I want to throw this computer out the window, won't fix it and I won't feel better!
16:09:43 <Eric> I hope lack of cell reception while in the park strikes a message!
16:10:49 <Eric> https://youtu.be/WYQ_8z2WqQk?t=23
16:12:05 <Eric> Your computer just needs some office space love :-D

16:21:07 <ynpvisitor46> Eric, I am sure the university will get her far enough in debt, she will never be able to take care of you.
16:21:21 <ynpvisitor46> Seems like that is what they do best.
16:21:27 <Betty> Aurum
16:21:32 <Betty> on static
16:22:12 <Betty> nice water visible
16:26:16 <Eric> Some of the universities we are looking at promise debt free school if you can get in!
16:26:41 <Eric> Getting in is another story :-D
16:27:59 <Eric> grand

16:48:12 <LindaG> Must be dead bug, been there for days
16:48:56 <LindaG> OF
16:49:27 <CraigC> maybe it is spider poop
16:50:35 <ynpvisitor28> Cool sky
16:50:55 <Lori S> Thunder here in town
16:51:12 <LindaGp> Nasty looking clouds
16:52:19 <LindaGp> CraigC, could be a spider snack
16:53:47 <Lori S> I've never been so happy to see steam from OF moving on the cam. How long will it last?
16:54:33 <LindaGp> One never knows ☺
16:56:03 <Kat> Back - :)
16:57:10 <Eric> Air force 2 left yet?
16:59:04 <Lori S> Not sure. I've had the door closed to keep out the heat of teh day.
17:00:20 <Lori S> Wait, I just heard a hekicopter

17:30:30 <Kat> Gone
17:31:22 <Kat> What is that? something on cam
17:32:10 <Lori S> Reflection of the spider elsewhere on the dome?
17:32:46 <Kat> Could be...
17:32:48 <Lori S> Not sure if reflection is the right word there
17:34:22 <Kat> Very strange
17:36:34 <Lori S> UBB
17:36:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Did the park survive?
17:36:42 <Lori S> Unidentified Brown Blob
17:37:19 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, Apparently so. :)
17:37:34 <Kat> Hahahah Good one!
17:37:55 <Kat> It did and we did!
17:38:28 <CraigC> I went biking... and survived
17:38:42 <Kat> Good to hear!
17:38:49 <CraigC> :)
17:38:51 <Lori S> CraigC, :thumbsup:
17:39:10 <Lori S> Imagine if the cam spider has babies...
17:39:13 <CraigC> LC
17:39:51 <Kat> No thanks Lori!
17:39:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Been removing garbage from my Dad's house. 112° today. Last week it was high 70s. :P
17:40:16 <CraigC> how far do you live from your dad?
17:40:51 <Kat> That's hard work in the heat!
17:41:20 <Kevin L™🌵> 2 blocks Craig.
17:41:50 <CraigC> so you can't have any wild parties without him finding out
17:43:30 <Kat> LS
17:46:01 <ynpvisitor111> Craig, Kevin invites his dad to all his parties.
17:46:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Shoot I go to bed earlier than he does!
17:47:23 <ynpvisitor111> Old people do not need sleep
17:47:58 <CraigC> I need sleep from 9pm to 4 am
17:48:39 <Eric> You just don't take enough naps Craig :-P
17:48:57 <CraigC> I go to bed at about 9:30 after falling asleep for 30 minutes while watching Netflix
17:49:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Same here
17:49:23 <CraigC> true, more naps would be better
17:49:40 <ynpvisitor111> Do you get a refund?
17:50:34 <Lori S> a wasp like critter has flown into the office. eek
17:50:44 <Eric> I don't even get a fund...let alone a refund!
17:51:00 <Lori S> oh, good, he found his own way out!
17:51:19 <Eric> Giant spider!
17:51:22 <CraigC> he landed on our cam
17:51:42 <Eric> Cam op should turn toward him and hit focus button :-D
17:51:48 <Eric> Nature cam....
17:52:00 <ynpvisitor97> still no streaming cam
17:52:01 <CraigC> what is park policy on killing spiders?
17:52:13 <Lori S> Kat, the UBB ws the spider!
17:52:36 <ynpvisitor111> Oh good they will have a new reason for the cam not working. Spider bit the cable and the wires got poisoned.
17:52:47 <CraigC> interesting lighting changes
17:52:50 <Kat> Looks like a different one!
17:53:02 <Lori S> oh my!

18:42:35 <Kat> Rain on the cam
18:42:40 <CraigC> looking though lattice
18:42:54 <Kat> Sort of :)
18:43:06 <CraigC> not lettuce
18:43:16 <Kat> I like the light on Castle
18:43:21 <LindaG> I think admin mentioned getting wipes working
18:43:35 <Kat> They did - not sure when!
18:43:56 <LindaG> *wipers
18:44:15 <LindaG> Like the backlighting
18:44:25 <Kat> :)
18:45:01 <LindaG> That would be fun to remotely turn on wipers
18:45:12 <LindaG> I do like to play
18:49:50 <Kat> I want to get that spider!!
18:50:00 <LindaG> Lol
18:51:02 <LindaG> Yeah but there'll be spider guts all over. lmao
18:51:33 <Kat> Then you get to use the wipers!!:p
18:51:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Put Raid in the wiper fluid.
18:52:30 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, 😳
18:52:45 <Kat> Lori says that spider is going to have babies on our cam! LOL
18:52:55 <LindaG> I saw a baby
18:53:21 <Kat> I saw several I think!
18:53:29 <LindaG> I caught spider sleeping one night when I planned all the way to the right
18:53:55 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, howd your day go?
18:54:10 <LindaG> *panned
18:54:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Very busy.
18:55:30 <LindaG> Sounds productive
18:56:13 <Kevin L™🌵> It was. LONG way to go still.
18:56:13 <Kat> Looks like a major!
18:57:05 <LindaG> If does look major
18:57:46 <Kat> May have missed a Lion
18:59:06 <Kat> Marmot?
18:59:32 <LindaG> Yeah
19:01:20 <Kat> Nice steam
19:02:11 <LindaG> Pretty
19:14:16 <LindaG> Hmmm tornado warning for all of ocean city, NJ
19:14:22 <LindaG> That's me
19:14:45 <LindaG> *county
19:14:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Is that unusual?
19:15:17 <LindaG> Yeah, usually tornado watch
19:15:46 <LindaG> A large line of severe thunderstorms moving west to east
19:16:13 <Kevin L™🌵> I didn't think you would have a lot of tornadoes there.
19:16:47 <LindaG> No we dont although it is very flat here
19:17:34 <LindaG> Warnings are happening more and more
19:18:09 <Kevin L™🌵> I think one reason is they can identify them better now.
19:18:48 <LindaG> The warning I think is a little north of me right now
19:20:07 <LindaG> When it happens it's usually f0
19:22:49 <Kat> Can still cause damage
19:24:09 <LindaG> I think we had an f0 in town a few years ago
19:25:01 <LindaG> Sure can, I'm watching radar
19:32:15 <LindaG> Warning g cancelled, yay
19:32:55 <Kat> :):):)
20:00:53 <Kat> OF
20:01:45 <Kat> Nice on static
20:27:58 <LindaG> So there was a tornado that touched down, way west of me though
21:32:49 <ynpvisitor76> Anyone driving the cam?
22:14:34 <ynpvisitor12> Is that a frozen Grand?
22:15:46 <ynpvisitor12> the cam changes every so often, but still the spinning circle of doom
