00:00:13 <ynpvisitor4> They didn’t play a meaningful game since july
02:49:18 <ynpvisitor13> I see Beehive is lost
03:08:45 <ynpvisitor51> Is that plume from Grand?
06:12:00 <GO MYSTICS> at least Dave can have a stress free shopping trip .. unless his wife maxes out the credit cards
06:12:24 <GO MYSTICS> enjoyed reading the play by play in the log last night. 4 runs was enough :)
06:17:31 <GO MYSTICS> I know you would have loved some playoff games Dave, maybe next year?
06:17:57 <GO MYSTICS> MYSTICS have final game at home in the WNBA finals tonight ... so GO DC TEAMS
06:18:34 <GO MYSTICS> 1F this morning, chilly start to the day
06:28:44 <Rice> Did the scale on the screen change? Or is it just my brower?
06:36:25 <ynpvisitor50> Rice, I think it's the same
06:36:52 <Cooper> Hi Craig
06:37:06 <CraigC> hey
06:40:22 <Joe> It is all yours Craig
06:41:05 <CraigC> hey Joe, how's it going
06:41:33 <Joe> Good, very foggy
06:41:44 <ynpvisitor51> The morning light may be nice today
06:41:55 <Cooper> 0 F
06:42:49 <GO MYSTICS> how low can we go?
06:42:53 <Joe> Are you sure on OF?
06:43:03 <GO MYSTICS> hasnt been below zero yet this fall, right?
06:43:17 <Cooper> I do not think so
06:43:22 <CraigC> I dont think iit is
06:45:59 <Joe> Cam has been on OF since 0530 so soon
06:46:20 <CraigC> I bought a new backup Hard Drive, it took 5 hours just to transfer photos....
06:46:29 <Cooper> uhm?
06:46:35 <Cooper> why is OF Predict at 0818?
06:46:55 <CraigC> cuz I entered in OF, then deleted
06:47:04 <Cooper> oh
06:48:54 <Joe> That is a lot of photos
06:49:22 <CraigC> yeah, I don't do a very good job of culling out bad ones after vacations
06:50:10 <Joe> You probably never take a bad one.
06:50:48 <Cooper> Craig, ROFLP?
06:51:38 <CraigC> I stopped carrying my camera a lot this last summer cuz I got tired of wading through all the detritus of photos of the same thing
06:51:52 <Cooper> OF
06:52:10 <Joe> I throw away the ones of my feet and the car floorboard
06:53:11 <Joe> That is a geyser, I am certain :)
06:53:25 <CraigC> yep, this time looks legit
06:53:32 <CraigC> looks slo mo
06:54:04 <Joe> They need to adjust the frame/bit rate
06:54:23 <CraigC> can they do that from their office?
06:56:07 <Joe> Yes all settings can be done from anywhere on the camera, on the radio there are a few that they have to be at the location for
06:56:41 <CraigC> is there any risk of it causing more freezes if they improve the view?
07:00:14 <CraigC> :( looks dead
07:03:06 <CraigC> did they make any adjustments that improved the pixelation on the camop view? It looks way better than last week
07:03:52 <Joe> I don't think so, the really slowed both streams down when they were trouble shooting the previous setup I think they can reset them now.
07:06:39 <Joe> What has me worried is when the Inn opens next year, as we had some interferenceon this current setup before they closed the Inn
07:09:55 <Joe> That being said, If they cut down all the new growth trees blocking the passive repeater we may get a better microwave signal that will help
07:10:27 <CraigC> between the inn and ranger station, or where
07:11:24 <Joe> between the microwave tower near the rangerstation and Washburn
07:12:10 <CraigC> whoa, how many trees are you talking about
07:13:34 <Joe> The Radio shop recently discovered those trees, (hundreds of trees) blocking the path and are sorprised we even get a signal at all
07:14:02 <Joe> Surprised*
07:14:09 <CraigC> I'd help fell trees, that would be fun
07:14:28 <Joe> They are taking steps to eliminate them
07:16:15 <Joe> I don't know what they have to do to get permission to remove them, but that path is a public safety issue so it may be easy
07:22:04 <Joe> I think we had a Grand at 0324ish but I did not post it because of the fogginess nature in the area
07:22:44 <CraigC> hope this clears at some point on my shift
07:26:04 <Cooper> Time to go walk to the bus in the snow:)
07:40:52 <lori lurking > I just saw a backpacker died in the Bechler region.
07:41:06 <lori lurking > Glad they found him before the weather hit!
07:41:14 <CraigC> yeah, heart attack
07:41:25 <CraigC> 57 years old
07:41:30 <CraigC> hey Lori
07:41:37 <lori lurking > good morning Craig
07:42:03 <CraigC> I'd like to die that way, but not for another 20 years or so
07:42:06 <lori lurking > I hate to see people my age die. Well, even younger!
07:44:01 <Joe> I feel that I am going to live until I'm 110, I don't deserve that. :)
07:44:15 <lori lurking > I only want to go that way if it is the big one and takes me right out.
07:44:16 <CraigC> :)
07:44:54 <CraigC> my dad lived to 98, then collapsed in his bedroom and was gone, quick... lucky SOB
07:45:56 <lori lurking > My great grandpa woke up one morning, chatted with grandma in bed, said he was still tired and going back to sleep. And he never woke up.
07:46:22 <CraigC> even better way
07:47:40 <lori lurking > When people say "what if Yellowstone explodes when you are there?" I always say "If it goes, I want to be right there."
07:48:00 <CraigC> no kidding
07:48:21 <CraigC> who wants to spend 2 or 3 days coughing and suffocating to death in the surrounding states
07:49:56 <Joe> I want to be there if it 'goes" but I do not have a few hundred thousand years to wait.
07:50:04 <CraigC> ;)
07:51:44 <Joe> A biped
07:51:56 <CraigC> where
07:52:18 <Joe> to rour left near BW
07:52:22 <Joe> There
07:52:28 <CraigC> sign
07:52:33 <CraigC> it fooled me earlier
07:52:48 <Joe> OH OK :)
07:53:34 <Joe> From afar it looks like footprints, but up close
07:53:47 <CraigC> person on static
07:57:32 <Bill> Good morning
07:57:38 <CraigC> hey Bill
07:58:41 <Ryan> Brr
07:59:02 <CraigC> hey Ryan, where are you
08:00:52 <Ryan> Eating breakfast
08:01:07 <Ryan> Soon to be out for a bit
08:01:25 <CraigC> OF area?
08:02:01 <Bill> lies. I did not quit
08:04:07 <Ryan> Yup
08:06:00 <lori lurking > wrap some paper or plastic around your feet inside your boots.
08:06:46 <CraigC> castle
08:08:29 <CraigC> Ryan, can you confirm castle from where you are?
08:09:25 <Ryan> Nope
08:09:43 <Ryan> I can in about ten more minutes though.
08:15:38 <GO MYSTICS> -3F, nice
08:16:12 <GO MYSTICS> Now you dont need to go in Jan
08:16:29 <GO MYSTICS> but you are late getting out, its been light for an hour or more
08:17:13 <CraigC> OF
08:17:51 <More Brimstone> OK enough snow already
08:19:12 <GO MYSTICS> looks pretty at W Gate
08:24:00 <More Brimstone> Check out the lake!
08:25:23 <More Brimstone> Washburn south you can really see the thermal area
08:25:48 <CraigC> nice
08:27:46 <Cooper> are we looking at The Hill?
08:28:11 <CraigC> this is Old Faithful
08:30:02 <CraigC> hey Katie
08:30:09 <Katie> G'mornin'
08:30:22 <Katie> Lovely day in the basin again this morning
08:30:24 <CraigC> might be some bison
08:32:01 <CraigC> can you check castle every so often, see if there is a steam plume
08:32:31 <ynpvisitor49> Brrr, looks cold there
08:32:49 <Katie> That's all we see looking down basin at this point
08:33:08 <ynpvisitor49> we just got a light skiff of snow
08:33:54 <Katie> Cam seems a bit "sluggish" to operator controls this morning
08:45:32 <Katie> A visitor out in the near zero visibility
08:45:54 <CraigC> might be Ryan
08:48:23 <ynpvisitor117> Not out yet.
08:50:54 <Cooper> Go away fog
08:52:56 <ynpvisitor117> Driving back to housing I couldn’t see castle. It was way too foggy. I’ll know in about a half hour for sure as I’ll be walking past it.
08:53:23 <LindaG> Wow -3, chilly
08:53:31 <LindaG> Good morning!
08:53:53 <Lori S> Good Morning Linda and all
08:54:02 <Cooper> Corddinated Attack!
08:54:07 <Cooper> Hi Linda, Ms. Lori
08:54:08 <Lori S> Kinda eerie there with the fog
08:55:26 <Lori S> Bob reperts a line of traffic waiting for west gate to open. Nuts. Not at gate but further back if you look on the cam
08:56:02 <LindaG> Hi Lori and cooper
08:58:22 <LindaG> Where is that steam coming from on Washbur southeast? Falls?
08:59:38 <CraigC> thermal basin
09:00:39 <CraigC> Washburn Hot Springs
09:00:57 <LindaG> Ah
09:01:53 <LindaG> Thx
09:02:27 <ynpvisitor117> Lori. How bad are the roads? We’re gonna try to get out via west today
09:04:02 <CraigC> starting to wonder if I should change our trip next week to Moab instead of YNP
09:06:33 <Katie> Monida just reopened...
09:06:47 <Katie> remains snow & ice covered
09:08:44 <Lori S> ynpvisitor117, sorry, Ryan. Was afk
09:09:19 <Lori S> Roads in town are just rutted. sunny and bright here. cehcking 411...
09:11:37 <Lori S> Whoops, lloks like I missed him.
09:12:34 <Lori S> Anyone else see the Dodgers Nationals game last night?
09:15:04 <ynpvisitor10> Dave did. Going to be a boring LA trip for him.
09:23:14 <More Brimstone> I did
09:23:49 <CraigC> is anywhere else visible besides OF now?
09:24:13 <Katie> Getting close to visible...
09:24:44 <CraigC> castle looks post eruptive, no?
09:25:20 <Lori S> afk
09:26:32 <ynpvisitor92> At least 5 vehicles parked at Mammoth on webcam, are people seriously hiking at -3 °F?
09:28:11 <ynpvisitor88> walking to Liberty Cap isn't really hiking
09:28:22 <CraigC> LOL
09:28:26 <ynpvisitor80> Castle is not post major
09:28:34 <ynpvisitor80> It may be post minor
09:28:51 <CraigC> ynpvisitor80, what do you think I should do with GT entry?
09:29:28 <ynpvisitor88> going down to Canary Spring area in sub-zero temps makes great photo ops
09:29:43 <More Brimstone> I can see one on the trail
09:31:34 <ynpvisitor92> I guess some are more hardy than others...
09:31:48 <Eric> I would hike in that problems on a nice day like we are seeing in the park.
09:31:54 <Lori S> More Brimstone, Ouch with the beanball, right? Not actually thrown at his head, but still.
09:32:03 <Eric> and good morning
09:32:11 <Katie> Indeed. 3 degrees with sun and no wind is no problem
09:32:25 <Eric> almost don't need a jacket :-P
09:32:26 <Lori S> Hi Eric Hi Katie
09:32:32 <Eric> Hi Lori
09:32:40 <Lori S> Pretty Lion shot
09:32:46 <Katie> If the base layers are good - no jacket :)
09:33:08 <Katie> It is a pretty scene. I was just "checking it out" but it was pretty, so I stayed for a couple minutes
09:33:08 <Eric> But if you have proper clothing...even colder, windy and rainy isn't really an issue
09:33:13 <ynpvisitor80> VC says they are checking loggers soon
09:33:29 <Lori S> Katie, Thanks!
09:33:50 <Eric> I need better boots for the rainier weather though :-(
09:34:05 <Eric> Mine soak through after a few hours of being soaked.
09:34:06 <ynpvisitor80> We’re out at OF in front of VC
09:34:24 <ynpvisitor80> Waiting for OF
09:34:36 <Lori S> >>>>>> :)
09:34:40 <Eric> Can we spin the camera to Ryan and say hi?
09:35:04 <Eric> There they are :-D
09:35:07 <Eric> Hi Ryan!
09:35:14 <Katie> I'm looking at Lonestar officially
09:35:17 <Eric> and will?
09:35:28 <Lori S> Katie, :thumbsup:
09:35:32 <Eric> who is with you?
09:35:51 <Lori S> Hi Ryan!
09:35:59 <Eric> demetri?
09:36:27 <CraigC> maybe Norris work started
09:36:50 <Eric> I kinda doubt they could be paving in this...but I am no expert
09:37:02 <CraigC> look at the big spike on YNM
09:37:03 <Lori S> CraigC, Yowza. Look at the red
09:37:13 <ynpvisitor80> Daisy 0933
09:37:15 <ynpvisitor80> Daisy 0933 per FRS
09:38:04 <Katie> More visitors
09:38:29 <Eric> hmm, maybe they are scraping the parking lot up there Craig
09:39:05 <Lori S> Getting gorgeous out there.
09:39:20 <Lori S> Washburn
09:39:21 <Eric> Yep, looks like it will be a beautiful day
09:40:25 <CraigC> Ryan, don't forget to log the Raven at SC on GT note
09:40:29 <Eric> I took a hike last night...was beautiful here too:
09:40:46 <Lori S> Now that I'm paying better attention, I ask again, anyone see that Dodgers Nationals game last night?
09:40:48 <Eric> My pup on Silver Star mountain with Mt. Hood in the background.
09:41:02 <Eric> Is that foosball Lori?
09:41:07 <ynpvisitor81> um looks cold
09:41:31 <Lori S> Eric, Great photo
09:41:44 <Lori S> CraigC, hehehe
09:42:09 <Eric> Thanks...thats my little girl Nora, great hiking companion. I was just worried about a Cougar grabbing her as I hiked back in the twilight.
09:42:26 <Eric> There was a cougar killed dear on the trail part way up.
09:43:10 <Eric> I wonder if radio issues will go away now that the inn is closed
09:43:19 <CraigC> cool shot, Eric
09:43:40 <Eric> Thanks
09:44:05 <Eric> nevermind...I see we had lots of down failing warnings overnight
09:46:46 <CraigC> OF
09:46:52 <Joe> Eric, my recordings have no dropouts since1953 yesterday
09:46:55 <Eric> I must be lagged
09:47:11 <Eric> ohhh, awesome Joe...that must be from previous days
09:47:25 <CraigC> nope, preplay, ignor eme
09:47:31 <Eric> or not enough failure to cause a dropout
09:47:44 <Eric> Craig Fail :-P
09:48:06 <Lori S> Lost Ryan o the "crowd" haha
09:48:14 <Lori S> in that*
09:48:50 <Joe> probably so, I have things set to ignore less than ten second failures
09:48:53 <Eric> Apparently you can climb the iced waterfalls in yellowstone during the winter...I had no idea that was legal
09:52:29 <Eric> about time for OF
09:52:35 <Eric> OF
09:52:40 <CraigC> good call
09:52:47 <CraigC> gorgeous
09:52:55 <Eric> yes, that is beautiful!
09:53:08 <Eric> Stunning
09:53:32 <ynpvisitor92> Is that 'geyser-effect' snow we are seeing?
09:54:26 <CraigC> check out the dude at the lodge on some machine
09:54:38 <ynpvisitor401> nice on static also
09:54:46 <Eric> Yep, construction equipment Craig
09:54:56 <Eric> They need to finish that BW
09:55:23 <Eric> Welcome back Katie :-P
09:56:43 <Lori S> Eric, Where'd you hear you can climb the waterfalls?
09:56:52 <Eric> Wow...that is some super flat readings on the logger...must be burried in snow
09:57:12 <Lori S> Lori S, Never seen anyone doing that
09:57:17 <Lori S> hehe
09:57:24 <Lori S> Eric, not Lori S,
09:57:29 <Eric> One of the facebook yellowstone groups was talking about it.
09:57:43 <Lori S> Which falls?
09:57:51 <Eric> I assumed it would be illegal, but I guess not
09:57:56 <CraigC> I'm surprised, because of there is an incident, how can the park handle it in the winter
09:57:58 <CraigC> if
09:58:29 <Eric> A couple climbers died at lower falls I the past.
09:58:54 <fishynp> I have a hard time believing it is legal.
09:59:09 <CraigC> I know people that do ice climbing and it freaks me out
09:59:12 <Lori S> Who in their right mind would try to climb Lower Falls? Chunks break off of that.
09:59:14 <Katie> It's legal in National Forests, but I don't know about in the Park(s)
09:59:20 <fishynp> I guess it depends on the waterfall
09:59:37 <Lori S> I also wouldn't think it's legal
09:59:57 <Kevin L™🌵> I am trying to get setup for cam now.
10:00:24 <Eric>
10:01:56 <Eric> Looks like the only policy against ice climbing is only in the Grand Canyon near the main falls.
10:03:00 <Eric> Ice climbing seems interesting...but you would have to be pretty technical to do it
10:03:17 <Eric> and I would need to lose another 50 lbs :-P
10:03:39 <Katie> controls released
10:03:54 <Eric> lion looks ready
10:04:02 <ynpvisitor88> Eric what did you mean about flat loggers?
10:04:24 <Katie> Lion
10:04:36 <Eric> Look at SB logger...the trace is dead flat...probably insulated with snow :-P
10:05:00 <Eric> haha....I am nailing it today :-D
10:05:03 <ynpvisitor88> no water yet
10:05:38 <Eric> Kevin's cat is on the keyboard :-P
10:05:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Controls feel sluggish today
10:05:59 <Katie> Yes, Kevin - I said the same thing about sluggis
10:06:18 <Eric> Can you reboot the camera?
10:06:18 <CraigC> no ambient heat yesterday
10:06:29 <ynpvisitor80> Walking to hill. Bee is splashy.
10:06:30 <Kevin L™🌵> You move it and it goes about a second later.
10:06:44 <Eric> Lion is ready to go too Ryan
10:06:49 <Lori S> Eric, to get to most falls in the park in witner, you'd have to charter a snowcoach. Not cheap. Or get one of the very limited lottery spots for single ride snowmobiles.
10:06:59 <ynpvisitor80> Was that not an eruption?
10:07:16 <Eric> stalled out
10:07:22 <Eric> Just a lot of steam
10:07:30 <Eric> or super minor minor
10:07:46 <ynpvisitor80> Ok. Picking up speed. At bridge thanks for the note.
10:07:51 <Katie> It wasn't NG, was it?
10:07:57 <Eric> Nope
10:08:07 <Eric> NG is steaming nicely though
10:08:20 <CraigC> Eric, remember that day we met at Grand, and then went to BH, and I called the Lion, then retracted.... but someone else entered it as a Minor LOL
10:08:33 <Eric> Yep
10:08:52 <Eric> Lion is weird like's minors can be tricky
10:09:02 <CraigC> it put maybe 3 or 4 feet of water up
10:09:32 <Eric> I mean we could have missed Lion ini earlier this morning and this is the death throws...hard to tell
10:09:53 <Katie> It was very short in duration, whatever it was.
10:10:12 <CraigC> there was ZERO visibility while I had it from before 7 to 830
10:10:20 <Eric> can we zoom on marmot cave?
10:10:34 <Eric> I think that is the little geyser above it erupting
10:10:38 <Katie> There wasn't visibility until about 9:30
10:11:16 <Cooper> if it erupted at a 1d interval yesterday, and we just missed it, it should be almost near
10:11:23 <ynpvisitor92> Since no one bothered, I entered the last OF - feel free to modify / delete as needed
10:12:02 <Lori S> Cooper, when did you get here?
10:12:03 <Eric> Gone now...bummer
10:12:13 <ynpvisitor92> I didn't pay attention to duration, though
10:12:36 <Eric> Thanks 92
10:12:47 <CraigC> is it foot traffic only in through the west gate?
10:12:51 <Cooper> Lori, I was here when you first got on, and about 5 mins ago
10:12:58 <Cooper> Hi Ms. Lori
10:13:25 <ynpvisitor92> Electric peak - nice view
10:13:36 <Eric> Looks like LE parked on road blocking traffic
10:14:13 <Eric> At west gate
10:14:29 <Cooper> Grand window
10:15:11 <Eric> Since Ryan went to the hill, we should have some warning
10:16:40 <Lori S> Eric, most park roads still closed...
10:20:43 <ynpvisitor80> Aurum is no where near erupting.
10:21:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice to know. Thanks.
10:23:23 <ynpvisitor80> Off to grand
10:23:40 <ynpvisitor88> weird - that flag looks like it was entered in the future! 1615?
10:23:40 <CraigC> got the info on the castle, deleted my ? entry
10:24:26 <ynpvisitor88> did you see the flag was entered at 1615? Weird
10:24:37 <CraigC> no, missed thta
10:24:39 <CraigC> that
10:24:57 <ynpvisitor88> must be a glitch
10:25:12 <Eric> I put together the rest of my hike photos from last night:
10:25:16 <Eric> If anyone is interested
10:27:10 <Cooper> Bee?
10:27:20 <Cooper> lots of steam on static?
10:27:24 <Cooper> can we pan over
10:27:25 <Cooper> nope
10:28:09 <Cooper> Lion 1023
10:28:12 <Cooper> that is what it was
10:28:36 <Lori S> I'm just gonna mark myself away. Lots going on at work but I want to see the pretty basin. :) BBL
10:30:12 <Cooper> .
10:30:13 <Cooper> .
10:30:14 <Cooper> .
10:30:14 <Cooper> .
10:30:15 <Cooper> Grand
10:30:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Atomic Grand.
10:31:03 <Lori S> Grr my cam is frozen of course it is
10:31:20 <ynpvisitor80> DAMN
10:31:22 <Joe> Eric, If you have time can you zoom in on the roof where the flag poles are and get a picture of both ends I want to see how many antennas can be seen
10:31:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Had one of those atomic bomb mushroom clouds.
10:31:51 <Joe> OF the Inn that is
10:31:52 <Eric> I think you mean Kevin Joe :-D
10:32:14 <Joe> I thoyught you are in basin
10:32:24 <Eric> Nope...Ryan is there
10:32:26 <Joe> thought
10:32:31 <Eric> heading to grand I think
10:32:31 <Kevin L™🌵> That is Ryan.
10:32:43 <Joe> Ah! ok
10:32:49 <Eric> I am sitting in my office...70 degrees :-P
10:32:50 <ynpvisitor88> #80 is there
10:33:11 <Eric> Run Ryan!
10:33:24 <Eric> He should get there before it ends
10:33:29 <Eric> hopefully
10:33:30 <Katie> Ryan didn't miss that Grand start?
10:33:33 <Katie> Darn!
10:33:43 <Eric> You can see them heading there
10:33:49 <Eric> hope they get a 3b
10:34:09 <Eric> They missed lion too I think
10:34:22 <Eric> Hopefully BH doesn't go right after they get there
10:37:00 <ynpvisitor66> It’s cold, can’t imagine running feels good
10:38:12 <Eric> running is great in the warms you right up :-D
10:38:36 <CraigC> so you feel good for a few minutes before you die of hypothermia
10:39:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Freezes your lungs.
10:39:24 <Cooper> Kevin, does cold cause cancer?
10:40:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
10:40:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Especially if you are on guard duty.
10:53:39 <Eric> Sitting still is what freezes you! But I have to say, my lungs are getting in really good shape. I hiked 2000 vertical ft in an hour without stopping or even bothering to take a drink! That would have killed me one year ago :-P
10:54:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I remember running in Germany. It really hurt in the cold weather.
10:54:49 <Eric> I only run if a bear is chasing me!
10:55:14 <Eric> pump
10:55:44 <Eric> Anyone who watched Grand going to enter it?
10:56:34 <Cooper> Eric, I will
10:57:46 <Cooper> Done
11:00:06 <Joe> Is that Ryan at Bee, waving?
11:02:04 <Joe> I must be seeing things again, hope I don't start hearing voices :)
11:11:39 <Eric> Joe, this is God! (In my best George Burns voice :-D )
11:12:06 <Joe> :)
11:15:11 <Katie> Joe is seeing things and I just tried to click and zoom on the chat screen. Didn't work. Imagine that.
11:15:52 <Joe> We are in trouble!!
11:17:13 <ynpvisitor62> I went to grand.
11:20:01 <ynpvisitor62> Saw Lion, Grand, Old Tardy, and Bulger.
11:22:21 <Eric> We saw you heading that direction!
11:23:11 <Eric> Giantess looks ready!
11:26:59 <ynpvisitor59> OF static WC
11:27:16 <Kevin L™🌵> And streaming too.
11:27:45 <ynpvisitor59> oops, had to reload streaming
11:28:23 <Kevin L™🌵> It seems to be freezing today.
11:30:17 <Eric> Yep, 3 degrees kevin :-P
11:31:13 <More Brimstone> Glad it's not 3 Kelvin
11:31:13 <ynpvisitor102> hi
11:31:38 <Eric> So true Jimbo!
11:33:13 <More Brimstone> Cams are having trouble; Lake stopped, Washburn South is snow-covere
11:33:14 <More Brimstone> d
11:34:16 <Eric> lion
11:34:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Lion
11:34:35 <Eric> We must have missed Lion ini this morning
11:35:00 <More Brimstone> Likely given the conditions
11:35:09 <ynpvisitor59> A prior Lion would have been around 9:00 am
11:35:33 <Eric> We saw minorish behavior between 9 and 10 too
11:35:56 <Eric> we thought it might have been trying, but I think now it might have been quick minors
11:36:41 <Eric> Lions behavior is very different over the last month....curious to see what the heck the hill is doing
11:37:35 <Casey> Lion behaving differently? Anybody brave enough to predict Lioness? Big Cub?
11:37:44 <ynpvisitor59> With the new webcam running nicely now, lion not nearly as often in view, so some observational bias taking place? Otherwise agree that Lion sequences seem to be much shorter than in past years
11:38:17 <ynpvisitor102> ew
11:38:26 <ynpvisitor102> :bee:
11:38:46 <Katie> for my part, if Lion is in series, I sure try to catch eruptions. I'm partial to Lion. ;)
11:39:27 <Eric> More than observational bias...the intervals between ini have shortened up, even if series events are missed.
11:42:03 <ynpvisitor59> Last 100 entries have ~38 initials (not all are marked as such, a few are wrong), meaning most series are 1-3 events only, while in past years we say 6-10 events in a series
11:42:57 <ynpvisitor59> I don't have time to delve into the data again, but if there are fewer events in a sequence, than the interval between ini's will be shorter according to the Lion formula
11:43:15 <ynpvisitor59> the parameters may have changed, though
11:46:56 <ynpvisitor99> If the cam is working, it would be nice if this page would work with out flash.
11:47:47 <ynpvisitor99> It quit same time as the cam started to act up after the new radios.
11:47:52 <fishynp> 99, I agree. Google Chrome is dropping flash starting in 2020.
11:48:14 <ynpvisitor99> It worked just fine before that.
11:52:37 <Eric> Strange that it's not working for you
11:52:59 <Eric> The page should work without flash...I know it does for many
11:53:25 <fishynp> For me, it only works on a 30 s delay without flash.
11:53:29 <ynpvisitor99> I am on simple, and tried the regular page, nothing but circles. No message.
11:53:52 <ynpvisitor99> NPS page just fine.
11:53:54 <Eric> Yep...that is the flash alternative's called HLS and there is nothing we can do about it's delay :-(
11:55:01 <Eric> You can try this page 99:
11:55:07 <Eric> It doesn't use flash at all
11:55:09 <fishynp> It will only get to that if I hit the "Live Stream Type" refresh button. It won't do it automatically.
11:56:31 <fishynp> that page won't work for me
11:56:40 <ynpvisitor99> A play button pops up then the circle is all I get.
11:58:53 <Eric> idea then 99 No flash on that page
11:59:53 <fishynp> On this page, if I turn my flash off, it works with the HLS 30 second delay. However, on the "no flash" page you posted, I can't get it to work.
12:00:18 <ynpvisitor99> Castle and Daisy like the cold
12:00:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Have you deleted cookies?
12:01:04 <ynpvisitor99> Something got updated in that time. Deleted cookies, hard resets, still only nps page.
12:01:08 <Eric> ohhh, I wonder if I have to update that hls page...hold up
12:01:41 <Eric> They switched out the streams last week and I only updated this page!
12:01:52 <Eric> the old server I think still works...but super hit and miss
12:02:19 <Eric> I need to fix the simple page too
12:03:03 <fishynp> now it works
12:04:28 <Eric> Yes...and it just works by random luck fish...that streaming server is super flakey
12:04:42 <ynpvisitor99> Yes it does. Now the stream is flakey, just like Kevin's biscuits.
12:04:50 <Eric> I just updated the hls stream url on the hls.php page, so it should work correctly now every time
12:05:17 <Eric> I fixed simple.php too, so that page should be working as well
12:05:58 <Eric> Thanks for the reminder to update those :-D
12:08:15 <Eric> I was just looking at Garnet Canyon in the Grand Tetons...I might have to hike that as well :-D
12:10:43 <ynpvisitor108> Where did all the people go?
12:11:26 <More Brimstone> Lunch break
12:11:50 <ynpvisitor99> Now I see 2.
12:12:20 <ynpvisitor99> DId they ever find the bikes?
12:15:52 <ynpvisitor99> Is that bee or bubblers steaming?
12:16:59 <ynpvisitor99> Well, time to go, thanks for fixing the page for us non-flashers.
12:24:51 <Eric> As a wise man once said to me..."Expose yourself to geysers!"
12:25:14 <Cooper> Was that wise man yourself?:p
12:27:43 <Eric> Maybe another Lion soon
12:28:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Is that legal Eric?
12:31:10 <Eric> I assume so....would there be something illegal about seeing and learning more about geysers?
12:31:44 <Katie> Well...
12:32:37 <Eric> Our awesome mayor of Portland from the 80s -
12:33:22 <Eric> He owned a local Bar and was a big contributor to making portland what it is.
12:33:47 <CraigC> weird?
12:34:00 <Eric> Crazy in many different ways
12:34:04 <Kevin L™🌵> They do have a cool train.
12:34:41 <Eric> I wonder if just restarting the webcam would help
12:34:57 <Eric> especially if it's acting sluggish
12:35:11 <Eric> Can that be done remotely Kevin?
12:35:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Didn't the old one shut down for a bit every knight?
12:36:13 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it can be reset but not sure about shutdown.
12:37:39 <Cooper> Bublers?
12:38:30 <fishynp> roads are back open
12:38:51 <Eric> I was wondering about that fish...saw them setting up cones at West
12:46:59 <Cooper> Lion
12:47:00 <Cooper> nice
12:47:15 <ynpvisitor83> and still no text about roads. They are terrible about texting that they are back open
12:49:16 <ynpvisitor83> still webcam for heading into park from West is stuck
12:51:23 <Kat> Mine is not stuck
12:51:46 <CraigC> I se3e a front end loader
12:51:48 <More Brimstone> Lake is still stuck at 9:05 AM MDT
12:52:05 <ynpvisitor88> I forgot about thatKevin L™🌵, there was a nightly re-set once upon a time
12:52:12 <CraigC> indy?
12:52:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Is that Indy?
12:52:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep
12:52:34 <CraigC> yup
12:52:37 <Kat> me too, U think so Craig
12:52:40 <Kat> Yes
12:52:41 <Joe> YES
12:53:49 <More Brimstone> :bhi:
12:54:51 <ynpvisitor83> my heading into park is at 1137
12:55:06 <ynpvisitor83> west gate is current
12:55:28 <ynpvisitor83> did Ryan leave?
12:56:05 <Kitt> yay indy
12:56:22 <Kitt> bad wind direction
12:56:27 <Cooper> :)
12:56:33 <Cooper> yay!
12:56:54 <Kitt> who is number 83
12:57:30 <Kitt> can Beehive reach cam on roof?
12:57:57 <Kat> :bee:
12:58:00 <Kitt> Yay bee
12:58:18 <ynpvisitor59> OF static
12:58:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Possible Kitt
12:58:32 <CraigC> lol
12:58:43 <Eric> I see no water :-(
12:59:01 <Kitt> is fluffy getting still cam?
12:59:04 <Eric> OF is pretty on static
12:59:40 <Kitt> lucky person at Plume corner
12:59:50 <ynpvisitor59> A rare in-your-face BH
12:59:50 <ynpvisitor83> it might be the better view today
13:00:02 <Kitt> and at Depression
13:00:26 <Eric> The nightly reset was for the router...wonder if they still need to do that and forgot
13:00:39 <Eric> It seemed to help with the century link connection.
13:00:44 <Kitt> guess just dark patch at Depression
13:01:27 <CraigC> Eric, before I switched from CL to Comcast, I did the reset to help it. Rarely need to now
13:03:57 <Kitt> have a good day
13:04:16 <CraigC> cya Kitt
13:05:18 <fishynp> I guess the word got out that the park was back open.....
13:05:47 <ynpvisitor83> at West Gate at least...
13:05:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Oops. was on controls. Hope I didn't miss anything.
13:06:26 <ynpvisitor83> at least they opened all the gates for now
13:07:37 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, if you ever need breaks and I am here, just let me know
13:08:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Will do. Streaming on static keeps lagging for me so I use the controls for the most part.
13:12:05 <ynpvisitor88> has there been an update whether Norris will be open?
13:17:11 <Teri> greetings to all
13:17:53 <Teri> any idea what the event on the YNM seismo this am was? geologic event or repair/snow trucks?
13:22:02 <Casey> I don't know how much snow accumulation there is in Norris, but I've heard of snow falling off roofs/trees as explanations for events like that in the winter.
13:24:56 <fishynp> definitely not a natural event
13:25:37 <fishynp> you would see it on other stations as well (especially YNR) if it was a natural event.
13:26:01 <fishynp> looks like people are making it to Norris so I think it may be open.
13:29:19 <ynpvisitor87> there are a lot of people at West Gate, they must have all been waiting for the word it was open again. I would have thought the storm would have scared some away.
13:39:45 <Teri> 87 - there was something on the YNM seismo just as the Sept disturbance started that was not a quake, as no other station registered it; local change to the reservoir system was postulated by someone on FB; sounded plausible
13:40:17 <Teri> oops - fishynp not 87
13:52:12 <Lori S> Teri, Shhh on the D word. :p
13:52:16 <Cooper> Hi Lori
13:52:40 <Lori S> Hi Cooper. Busy day at work earlier. Finally just x'd out of here
13:52:53 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
13:53:37 <Lori S> NOw I get why someone will be on the list to the right but not answer you. LOL
13:53:44 <Lori S> That was me
13:53:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Haven't seen a splash. Wonder if it is just a big push.
13:54:54 <ynpvisitor21> Roads are opened. Gonna go look for wildlife in the snow.
13:56:11 <Teri> Lori - whose name shall not be spoken, lol
13:56:37 <Lori S> Teri, :thumbsup:
13:56:51 <Lori S> Once again my cam is not moving. BRB
14:05:27 <Cooper> wb Lori
14:05:28 <Lori S> I see moving steam! A restart fixes everything.
14:05:38 <Lori S> Hi again Cooper
14:05:55 <Lori S> So, did Ryan head out?
14:12:54 <Kevin L™🌵> NG?
14:13:33 <Cooper> don't think so GMK
14:14:01 <Lori S> That was a big puff of steam
14:14:20 <Cooper> oops
14:14:25 <Cooper> Sorry for caps mistake
14:14:32 <Lori S> Cooper, Was just looking at that.
14:14:33 <Kevin L™🌵> The second was a lion puff but not sure about the other one.
14:14:56 <Cooper> Joe, you on here?
14:15:10 <Lori S> Also an interesting cluster of 3 tiny quakes SE of the west entrance
14:15:46 <Cooper> Hi Betty
14:15:59 <Lori S> Hi Betty
14:16:13 <Cooper> The bigs ones gonna go, everyone run for your lives:p:p:p:p:p joking

14:18:32 <Cooper> ROFL
14:18:46 <Cooper> Lori, you are gonna get me in trouble:p
14:18:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Ya!
14:19:02 <Betty> funny thing is, you don´t say Guten hello. You say Guten Tag or Guten Abend or Guten Morgen. And just Hallo
14:19:56 <Betty> what is the 5th wave? so, no
14:19:56 <Cooper> Betyt, Glutne ABend?
14:20:03 <Cooper> ugg

14:20:24 <Lori S> Good Evening
14:20:40 <Lori S> Cooper, I don't want your keyboard...take it back
14:20:43 <Betty> no Gluten, just Guten

14:21:08 <Cooper> oops
14:21:12 <Cooper> Guten Abend
14:21:13 <Lori S> Betty, My eyes read Guten wher he put Gluten. Geez
14:21:39 <Betty> Guten Abend is perfect
14:21:44 <Cooper> I am glad I already had ALA(Advance Language Arts) today
14:21:49 <Cooper> YAY
14:22:03 <Lori S> Cooper, what the heck is that?
14:22:23 <Cooper> Lori, what the heck is what?
14:22:34 <Lori S> Advanced Language Arts
14:22:44 <Cooper> Writting, and Reading?
14:22:55 <Lori S> Oh, so English
14:23:02 <Kevin L™🌵> It is where you draw pictures with words.
14:23:03 <Cooper> ugg
14:23:35 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, As in creative writing?
14:24:08 <Betty> no, dancing the words
14:24:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Only if you put it on a canvas.
14:24:23 <Lori S> I hope Cooper doesn't use Dave's keyboard for that.:p
14:24:51 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, Like making an actual picture using words like a collage?
14:26:27 <Lori S> Nevermond, I Googled it :)
14:26:36 <Lori S> nevermind*
14:27:54 <Kevin L™🌵> We used to make some great pictures with the letters on the old dot matrix pinfeed printers.
14:28:37 <Lori S> So more like a Monet painting with the litle dots, but letters instead
14:28:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes.
14:29:20 <ynpvisitor59> Sort of like this
14:30:09 <Kevin L™🌵> In Highway Design someone did Snoopy in his WWI Ace outfit shaking his fist with the Caption "The Road Goes Through!"
14:30:11 <Betty> looks like Aurum
14:30:19 <Betty> looked...
14:30:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Lets hope it was a steamy Pump.
14:31:01 <Lori S> Can you all tell I have no kids? :p
14:31:20 <Betty> on static
14:32:29 <Betty> OF
14:36:44 <More Brimstone> I think I've seen the phrase "steamy pump" in bad romance novels.
14:42:23 <ynpvisitor39> West Gate finally clear
14:42:24 <Betty> Arty?
14:45:20 <Betty> Is Ryan still there?
14:45:53 <Lori S> I wondered that earlier too.
14:46:34 <Kevin L™🌵> I think he is leaving today but I don't know when.
14:49:25 <Lori S> What's that steam column in th e middle?
14:49:25 <Eric> Don't know if 59 left...but I like their xkcd they linked :-P
14:49:50 <Lori S> I meant on GH I'm on delay
14:50:07 <Eric> probably pump
14:50:30 <Lori S> Eric, No, it was this side of that boardwalk
14:50:38 <Lori S> and closer towards Bee
14:50:46 <Eric> ohh, don't know
14:51:26 <Eric> Kevin...i have a dot matrix girly poster, which I have always thought hillarious. Printed it in the 80s
14:51:49 <Eric> No idea what artist spent the time making it...but it cracked me up
14:52:07 <Eric> dragon spring is that steam column in the middle of the hill most likely
14:52:13 <Kevin L™🌵> There were a few of those but they didn't let them hang in the office.
14:53:13 <Kevin L™🌵> When we did the casino software the graphics were drawn on graph paper and hand coded into the computer.
14:53:13 <Eric> I remember in high school being so mesmorized by being able to run a program that vibrated the heads on my floppy disk drive at different rates that actually make it play music with the vibrations
14:53:30 <Lori S> to the right of Aurum this side of the walk towadr the middle
14:53:44 <Eric> Probably dragon spring
14:53:49 <Lori S> I mean midway between the baordwalks front to back
14:53:59 <Lori S> There it is again
14:54:10 <Eric> Dragon Spring
14:54:32 <Eric> Like directly in front of pump on our side of the BW?
14:54:37 <Betty> Plate is in that area too
14:54:58 <Eric> plate is a little to the left I think...and Hi Betty
14:55:10 <Betty> oh, hi Eric
14:55:17 <Lori S> You see whre I am talking about?that steamy arearight at the right egde of that snow in the middle
14:55:28 <Eric> Yep...dragon spring
14:55:34 <Eric> :-P
14:55:41 <Lori S> So then I saw it erupt?
14:55:53 <Lori S> It had a tall comun
14:55:57 <Lori S> column
14:56:01 <Eric> on the left of the screen is plate area I believe, the middle is dragon spring
14:56:16 <Lori S> delayed stand by
14:56:37 <Eric> There is also a "crack" out there going kind of up from dragon spring toward the BW that has quite a few thermal features on it
14:56:52 <Eric> I don't know the names of all those
14:57:05 <Eric> But they were pretty active this spring
14:57:18 <Lori S> yeah, right where all the color is
14:58:21 <Lori S> Pretty sire it wasn't Pump
14:58:26 <Lori S> sure
14:59:14 <Teri> maybe Joe can ck it out on the daily (?)
14:59:29 <Eric> This is the area I think you were seeing Lori:,-110.8294271,3a,23y,208.56h,81.93t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sIzIljZTjP1lbmN7clJ1YyQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
14:59:48 <Betty> hi Teri
14:59:58 <Eric> Dragon Spring can make a pretty nice tall column
15:00:02 <Teri> hey Betty!
15:01:36 <Eric> Bummer:
15:02:48 <Kevin L™🌵> That is pretty young
15:03:47 <Lori S> Not mkaing light of that but if I were to die of a heart attack, Bechler would be a nice place to be.
15:03:57 <Lori S> But sad all the same
15:05:49 <Lori S> I just searched Roof Geyser Yellowstone and got a bunch of OF ictures with the Inn roof in them. LOL
15:07:21 <fishynp> NGB is clearly open now....
15:07:45 <Eric> or they are working on the parking lot again
15:07:50 <Eric> ?
15:08:03 <Eric> Does look like more local traffic though
15:08:12 <fishynp> no. that's tourists.
15:12:31 <Eric> looks like road still closed between UGB and Lake
15:25:08 <GO MYSTICS> looks pretty out there
15:29:05 <GO SUN> GO MYSTICS, what time is the game?
15:30:22 <GO SUN> Mohegan Sun arena is a bit too far for me to drive, so missed the prior games
15:30:38 <GO MYSTICS> 8pm ET
15:31:12 <GO SUN> hope its on the web somewhere
15:35:35 <GO MYSTICS> ESPN and streamed on WatchESPN
15:36:40 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> this worked yesterday with the NATS and Dodgers
15:36:55 <Kevin L™🌵> My kid used to make smells in there.
15:37:40 <Kevin L™🌵> I think the Dodgers beat themselves.
15:38:39 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> I blame Dave, he said 3 runs wasnt enough
15:39:47 <Betty> hi Graham
15:40:14 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> h Betty. when do you g skiing?
15:40:51 <Betty> maybe weekend before xmas
15:41:23 <Betty> but 1st week in Jan for sure
15:41:45 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> nice, could have done it today in YNP. not sure if Big Sky opened
15:42:44 <Lori S> The things one finds on the internet:
15:43:30 <Betty> they predict about 75° this weekend, so snow has to wait
15:44:08 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> thats a mixed blessing, nice weather but not for ski season
15:45:28 <Betty> time to get some sleep, now that I´m older
15:45:28 <Kevin L™🌵> I think those rocks would mess up your skis.
15:45:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Good knight Betty.
15:46:14 <Lori S> Night Betty
15:48:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Got up to 67° here today.
15:49:36 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> did the SB temp sensor die?
15:50:01 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> maybe its frozen in?
15:51:03 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> or snow effects
15:52:04 <Lori S> Let's hope its that
15:53:28 <Eric> I think a blanket of snow probably kept it thermally insulated...I would guess once runoff starts, that won't be an issue
15:53:37 <Eric> turban?
15:57:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Controls released
15:58:49 <Teri> hey Graham, congrats on Nats, now my NL team for the duration; Roberts may go the way of Showalter - not able to manage pitchers in the post season
16:02:06 <Kat> Evening all!
16:02:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
16:02:28 <Lori S> Hi Kat
16:02:48 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> thanks Teri .. i went to bed unhappy with them down 0-3 but the news people seemed happy whe I put the TV on this morning :)
16:03:04 <Kat> Hey Lori
16:03:11 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> I see Dave made it to LALA Land and is enjoying the sun
16:03:46 <Lori S> GO MYSTICS BEAT SUN, I had the game on as I was playing a game on my phone. Started paying more attention when the dude got beaned.
16:04:15 <Lori S> *(unintentionally beaned)
16:04:23 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> oooh nice fluffy
16:04:44 <Lori S> Pretty!
16:05:06 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> Hope RYan otout ok today, I think its his departure date?
16:05:50 <Lori S> He said this morning he was headed out to West. We just don't know when he headed that way.
16:06:00 <Lori S> Gate opened about 12:30-1pm
16:11:03 <Teri> GMBS - watch the replay; I thought they missed an opportunity in the 5th, but got one back and tied the game in the 8th; when LA left Kershaw in too long; Nats couldn't figure out Maeda, don't know why LA didn't use him; redemption for Kendrick w/the slam!
16:11:08 <Teri> nice OF!
16:11:56 <Kat> It was
16:12:14 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> thanks for the recap, just saw the highlights on tv
16:12:19 <Kat> More people out there than I expected
16:12:26 <Teri> I wonder if LA will keep Roberts; not that anyone else could do better
16:12:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Highlights?
16:13:19 <Teri> was surprised not to see the Dodgers closer sooner
16:20:17 <Kat> Sprinkler
16:21:32 <Teri> Kevin - GMBS referring to the NLDS game "highlights"
16:26:01 <Kat> That's a cold wait for Grand!
16:56:27 <Cooper> .
16:56:27 <Cooper> .
16:56:28 <Cooper> .
16:56:29 <Cooper> .
16:56:55 <Kat> Grand 1656
16:57:04 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> looks like Giant
16:57:11 <Cooper> haha
16:57:17 <Cooper> nice wishful thinking
16:57:18 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> well not any more now the wind shifted
16:57:33 <Kat> :)
16:59:02 <Eric> Freeze Frame
16:59:50 <Eric>
17:02:23 <Kat> Once saw J Geils band in Philly!
17:02:34 <Eric> Wow...quite a steam cloud in the up left of the mammoth cam:
17:02:47 <Kat> Tells you how old I am..
17:02:57 <Eric> That would have been fun :-D
17:03:27 <Kat> What I remember it was! LOL
17:04:17 <Kat> There will probably be no way to tell if Grand is a single or double burst
17:04:49 <Cooper> or 11 burst:p
17:04:52 <Kat> Bison getting close to Grand
17:04:59 <Eric> If the cam was working better...maybe
17:05:11 <Eric> I think the router needs a reset
17:05:29 <Eric> I assume the router is in the Ranger Station now
17:05:41 <Eric> Bison in bulgers hole?
17:05:47 <Kat> I wonder if those folks even see him
17:06:04 <Kat> Yep - they stopped
17:08:58 <Kat> I think it was single burst
17:13:44 <Cooper> Bison crossing the river
17:13:53 <Cooper> why did the bison cross thr river?
17:13:59 <Kat> :)
17:14:11 <Cooper> To get away from his/her friend
17:14:42 <Kat> Bison running toward people
17:14:52 <Katie> Very cool scene
17:15:30 <Kat> Nice
17:16:36 <Kat> They're really on the ,move!
17:17:19 <Cooper> some water in SB!
17:17:46 <Cooper> R-Side
17:19:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Back to frozen dinners for the doggies.
17:19:50 <Kat> Sad isn't it?
17:19:58 <Cooper> just make a poopie, and then the grass is warm?
17:20:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds like Army chow.
17:20:23 <Cooper> haha
17:22:50 <Cooper> Hi Ryan
17:23:04 <Cooper> Thanks for the Norris notes
17:23:07 <Ryan> Barely any water.

17:30:31 <GO MYSTICS BEAT> did Dave drop off the shrimp on his way to LA?
17:31:11 <Ryan> No. Still here. Snowed in an extra day. Delta moved tickets at no cost due to weather.
17:31:35 <Cooper> lucky
17:31:58 <Kat> Still here Cooper
17:32:10 <Cooper> oh, you are just nomming

17:32:56 <Cooper> Virtual Trade, Homemade Ravioli for some shrimp?
17:33:02 <Kat> That was aquick OF
17:34:12 <Kat> Nope
17:34:49 <Kat> Looks like long OF on static
17:37:04 <Kat> I meant it was an early OF - not quick
17:41:12 <Kat> Bison headed to Hams
17:41:59 <Cooper> hey buddy, I don't think they sell warm grass in there!:)
17:42:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Silly bison. They should know it is closed.
17:43:15 <Kat> Someone should tell them!
17:43:39 <Kat> Thats a lot of people going by!
17:44:13 <Eric> Yellow bus tour heading the grand prismatic :-P

17:50:59 <Cooper> Bulger

18:48:34 <Kevin L™🌵> I wonder what the 1805 was.

21:07:55 <Cooper> Goodnight Everyone
21:08:04 <Michael> Goodnight, Cooper.
21:08:15 <GabeL> Goodnight Cooper
21:13:30 <Kevin L™🌵> So far it has been a bad knight.
21:14:11 <Michael> This frigid night is reminding me of an old OF webcam capture.
21:18:31 <Michael> Hmmm. Didn't notice that was 10 years ago today. Guess we've had webcams for longer than I realized.
21:19:48 <Kevin L™🌵> I have been a camop for over 8 years now.
21:23:39 <Michael> Any highlights that stand out?
21:24:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Grizzly Bear on Lion Geyser. Stupid tour guide who took his group to the OF cone. Oh, the last time Giantess erupted.
21:26:27 <Michael> I'd love to catch a griz. Maybe I'll see one next spring.
21:27:22 <Kevin L™🌵>
21:29:25 <Kevin L™🌵> That cam was harder to run.
21:37:07 <Michael> That was fun to watch! Glad it was in between tourist seasons.
21:50:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Got a good view of the pine needles there.
21:54:47 <Michael> There's OF.
21:55:06 <ynpvisitor84> what's the deal with the Daisy times after 1800?
21:55:29 <Michael> The first one is a false alarm. I should go flag it.
21:55:47 <Kevin L™🌵> The later time is correct per a video review.
21:56:29 <ynpvisitor84> thanks
21:57:20 <ynpvisitor84> old faithful is a wonderful geyser :thumbsup:
22:41:19 <Michael> Grand
22:41:43 <GabeL> the geyser on the right?
22:42:00 <GabeL> Left*
22:42:47 <Michael> Left of center with steam going up to the top of the frame.
22:43:17 <GabeL> Ok
23:08:12 <GabeL> Alright, Goodnight everyone
