06:42:18 <GO SNOW> hopefully the roads will be ok for anyone exiting the SL today as its closing
06:43:51 <GO SNOW> at least ok once they open them
06:58:16 <CraigC> icicles ie
06:59:02 <GO SNOW> not god if cam tries to focus on the icicles
07:23:42 <ynpvisitorcc> OF

07:51:00 <Joe> Daisy
07:51:06 <GO SNOW> daisy
07:52:30 <GO SNOW> at least the VEC has some times to predict with ..... i wonder if there will be any visitors?
07:53:30 <CraigC> some walk-ins at west
07:55:17 <GO SNOW> Eric could speed walk to OF in a couple of hours
07:55:58 <GO SNOW> i wonder if they are checking entrance passes?
07:59:22 <CraigC> minors at SB
08:00:16 <CraigC> started at noon yesterday
08:00:47 <CraigC> at least the ones from SV with enough runoff to make it to the sensor without freezing
08:01:57 <GO SNOW> yep ... maybe slightly faster than before, but on about the "normal" timeline
08:02:15 <GO SNOW> not that its predicatble ... haha
08:02:34 <CraigC> ;)
08:02:48 <GO SNOW> strange to see the seismo with no activity all day
08:02:59 <CraigC> yeah
08:08:03 <GO SNOW> so Tuesday/Wed for SB ..... or longer. hopefully roads are open for the few gazers left
08:08:38 <GO SNOW> Tuesday looks snowy again ..... so hopefully Wed
08:10:49 <CraigC> my guess for this one is Wednesday
08:20:15 <ynpvisitor56> Beehive looks very quiet
08:23:16 <Cooper> hmmmm
08:25:36 <Cooper> Bee has had a bit of a pattern lately.... Sorta Splashy, Goes to sleep, wakes up, BSB, indy, Bee. Repeat for the last few cycles
08:34:46 <CraigC> Dwarf might be erupting again today
08:34:57 <CraigC> can we look across from marmot Cave?
08:35:17 <GO SNOW> looks like snow in BH runoff channel tho, so unlikely to have erupted
08:35:46 <Cooper> GO SNOW, that is what I was thinking.
08:36:21 <CraigC> bison
08:36:42 <Cooper> i was thinking Bee around 9:25
08:36:52 <ynpvisitor56> as the cam sneaks up on the lone bison
08:37:06 <Cooper> with his head a foot down in the snow
08:37:31 <ynpvisitor56> he is looking for Graham, who wanted the snow
08:37:42 <Cooper> The snow is awesome!
08:37:52 <Cooper> helpful in determining what went overnight

10:18:54 <GO SNOW> hi Lori, how is the snow? lots of people went home?
10:19:07 <ynpvisitor56> Daisy
10:19:42 <Lori S in West> Hi Graham, Maybe 4" Peeops still here. In denial.
10:19:53 <Lori S in West> peeps*
10:20:13 <Lori S in West> 20 was closed for part of yesterday
10:20:26 <GO SNOW> haha yeah, looks like roads will be closed for a while
10:20:46 <Lori S in West> look at gate right now...people pacing
10:20:56 <Cooper> Hi Ms. Lori
10:21:21 <Lori S in West> Hello Sir Korben
10:21:31 <Betty> hi Lori and Cooper
10:21:40 <Lori S in West> hi Betty
10:21:47 <Cooper> Hi Betty
10:23:12 <Eric> Morning
10:23:18 <Cooper> Hi Eric
10:23:23 <Eric> I think it's Master Korben
10:23:26 <Lori S> Morning Eric
10:23:36 <Cooper> it is a bombardment of Lori, Eric, Betty, and everyone!
10:23:46 <Cooper> Eric,:p
10:23:50 <Eric> Good Morning Master Korben
10:23:52 <Lori S> Yay!
10:23:58 <Cooper> Hello Master Eric
10:23:58 <Eric> Hi Lori :-D
10:24:04 <Eric> No...I would be a Sir
10:24:06 <Betty> hi Eric
10:24:25 <Cooper> Hello Sir Eric
10:25:46 <Eric> I am supposed to be up snowshoeing on Mt. Rainier...but they didn't open the gate this morning :-( Sitting in my winter clothing, feeling sad.
10:25:57 <Eric> and a little hot :-P
10:26:14 <Cooper> maybe turn on the AC?
10:26:23 <GO SNOW> you cant nowshoe round the gate?
10:26:26 <Lori S> Cooper, logical solution
10:26:44 <Cooper> but who would follow logic these days:p
10:26:59 <Eric> haha...nope, the gate is like 15 miles below were I wanted to snowshoe and about 3-4k feet lower
10:27:09 <Eric> Here is where I want to snowshoe: https://www.nps.gov/customcf/webcam/dsp_webcam_image.cfm?id=81B463D4-1DD8-B71B-0BB1FE8364315734
10:27:21 <Lori S> Someone who would remove the clothing layers before turning on the AC?
10:27:22 <GO SNOW> thats just a 2h hike for you
10:27:25 <Cooper> The bison is smart, sweeping away the snow then eating the grass
10:27:59 <Eric> Sorry, I do not hike 7.5mph :-P
10:28:05 <Eric> straight up hill
10:28:13 <Eric> Not sure I could even run that fast
10:31:02 <Eric> BTW, Micah confirmed that large plume near Norris junction is most likely the asphalt factory southeast of the junction. He saw it too and that is what it correlated to.
10:32:35 <GO SNOW> thats not the answer we wanted
10:36:42 <Betty> good to know anyway, thx Eric
10:47:11 <Lori S> Hi Kevin
10:48:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
10:56:49 <ynpvisitor92> aurum

10:57:31 <Betty> hi Kevin
10:57:34 <Lori S> Betty, :thumbsup:
10:57:34 <Cooper> Betty, that's what I was thinking
10:57:57 <Kevin L™🌵> I missed the last train out of Chama this morning until April. It felt sorry for me.

11:28:56 <ynpvisitor56> any sign from bee's bubbler?
11:29:41 <ynpvisitor9> On vacation, left early
11:35:38 <Teri> gm all
11:36:04 <Teri> looks like water is already back at SB platform (temp logger)
11:40:43 <CraigC> Teri, I saw water from NV on Friday, but runoff was dry on SV
11:44:45 <CraigC> OF
11:46:21 <Teri> Craig, nice that you were there; bet it was an ice rink
11:48:59 <CraigC> Teri, not yet
11:56:14 <Cooper> Bye
11:56:56 <ynpvisitor21> Lion
12:33:17 <ynpvisitor116> any activity from Bee?
12:33:32 <ynpvisitor116> Doing chores, so popping in from time to time
12:34:31 <ynpvisitor21> I read that differently, hahahahaha
12:36:11 <ynpvisitor116> I take it from lack of an answer, that the answer is no
12:36:12 <ynpvisitor21> and no, I have not seen much activity from Bee
12:38:03 <ynpvisitor116> ok, back to sewing
12:55:52 <ynpvisitor20> West Gate is opening
13:00:13 <ynpvisitor20> Or maybe not. A friend waiting thought they were opening it, now he’s not sure
13:04:18 <ynpvisitor20> Cars and busses entering now
13:21:24 <ynpvisitor116> Castle
13:21:58 <ynpvisitor116> and I thought I saw Beehive's South bubbler when we checked it briefly, but not sure
13:22:28 <ynpvisitor21> Definitely Possible
13:22:55 <ynpvisitor116> oh, I see, Old Faithful is due
13:23:54 <ynpvisitor21> perfect time for Bee then
13:24:17 <ynpvisitor52> so far only opened West to OF
13:25:20 <ynpvisitor21> Lion
13:25:41 <ynpvisitor116> I was just wondering what was putting steam on still cam
13:25:43 <ynpvisitor116> thanks
13:27:49 <ynpvisitor21> I bet Graham is happy that Astros, and Nationals made it to world series
13:29:19 <ynpvisitor116> Fluffy doesn't like its window today
13:30:38 <Teri> West to OF open, snow tires required, per YNP text message
13:31:16 <Teri> 1:12pm MDT
13:33:27 <ynpvisitor95> at least 10 busses went in, I can't imagine they have snow tires!
13:34:04 <ynpvisitor21> about time OF
13:34:33 <ynpvisitor21> can we peak on Bee after.
13:37:39 <ynpvisitor21> Bee peek please?
13:37:42 <ynpvisitor21> thanks
13:37:52 <ynpvisitor21> Bee looks dead
13:38:08 <ynpvisitor116> well enjoy Bee, time to go to the store
13:38:36 <ynpvisitor116> if it was the bubbler I saw, then you have less than 20 minutes
13:40:09 <Teri> 95 - passenger cars
13:44:11 <ynpvisitor95> they never check Teri, ever
13:44:31 <ynpvisitor95> yet I guess if a car gets in an accident without snows, the penalty might be higher
13:45:01 <ynpvisitor95> and why let busses in on icy roads?
14:19:09 <ynpvisitor45> Can you check BH
14:24:26 <ynpvisitor65> 95 - I'm sure that most unchecked regs are liability disclaimers - like closing the Firehole hot spring trail (and others)
14:37:22 <ynpvisitor95> Road to Norris open now too.
14:37:54 <ynpvisitor95> 65, what is an unchecked reg?
14:40:12 <Betty> Lion has a watcher
14:49:00 <ynpvisitor77> Road open, lets check SB.
14:52:34 <ynpvisitor21> can we peek at Bee
14:52:50 <ynpvisitor21> oo
14:52:53 <ynpvisitor21> ps*
14:53:04 <ynpvisitor21> oopps* needed to refresh cam
14:55:24 <ynpvisitor74> I am back
14:55:33 <ynpvisitor74> still no Beehive
14:55:58 <ynpvisitor74> I take it we are watching for Aurum now
14:56:57 <ynpvisitor21> I am begining to think that Bee went overnight at some point
15:02:59 <ynpvisitor21> wb Lori
15:04:51 <Lori S> Hi Master K
15:05:20 <Cooper> bee waking up maybe
15:06:06 <Lori S> Cooper, thought I saw a bubbler about a half hr ago
15:06:17 <Lori S> but was zoomed out
15:06:20 <Cooper> that was not me
15:07:23 <Lori S> Cooper, you bubble?
15:07:41 <Cooper> oops
15:07:44 <Cooper> read that wrong
15:07:45 <Cooper> haha

15:22:11 <Lori S> I was making lunch
15:22:37 <Kitt> thought I saw the bubbler before we went grocery shopping
15:23:16 <Lori S> Kitt, when was that?
15:24:49 <Lori S> Bee was waiting for the roads to open. :)
15:24:49 <Ryan> GT looks like 1435 and 1509
15:25:12 <Lori S> Ryan, 1435 was my A entry...trying to get actual ime
15:25:23 <Ryan> oh ok
15:26:38 <Kitt> I thought I possibly saw it at 1320, but cam only hesitated at bee, so couldn't be sure
15:27:15 <Cooper> :bee::bee::bee::):):):):)
15:27:18 <Cooper> darn enter key!
15:27:22 <Lori S> Kitt, yeah, when I thought i saw it, cam was zoomed out so was using my magnifying glass :)
15:27:30 <Cooper> BAD ENTER KEY!

15:29:14 <Cooper> ok, I admit that is true
