05:38:46 <Rice> Snowy Morning in Upstate NY
07:02:32 <ynpvisitor104> Webcam failing? Say it isn’t so
07:04:24 <Kat> It's stuttering but not going down at this time
07:07:16 <Kat> OF
07:47:08 <Kat> Riverside
08:00:21 <Dave from B™> I see a couple of turkeys survived the holiday
08:00:32 <Dave from B™> Congrats 83 and 106!
08:04:32 <Kat> :)
08:13:32 <ynpvisitor92> You have 2 mirrors Dave?
08:14:50 <Dave from B™> Yep...I missed the turkeys:)
08:30:52 <Joe> Hi Mo, I guess you will not have a meltdown today
08:31:12 <Eric> Morning all
08:31:28 <Eric> Looks like Steamboat logger is covered in snow.
08:31:56 <Kat> Morning Joe and Eric
08:32:03 <Eric> Hi Kat
08:33:21 <Joe> Hi Kat, Eric, Dave and Jimbo
08:33:56 <Molly B. Denim> HI Joe
08:35:58 <Eric> Hi Joe
08:36:25 <Dave from B™> Morning everyone
08:36:36 <Eric> Hi Dave
08:37:16 <Eric> So tonight we start seeing squiggels on the SB logger again?
08:37:25 <Dave from B™> How much minor activity does it take to free the logger?
08:38:46 <Eric> Probably not a lot
08:45:04 <Joe> Grand should erupt within 1 hour after this OF
08:45:18 <Rice> I think it is interesting how the glitch on the Echinus logger, shows how little the temp really varies.
08:56:36 <Eric> North gate static is cool
08:57:52 <Dave from B™> I wonder how long those 2 cams will be down during the construction at the North Entrance
08:58:21 <ynpvisitor103> Took a while to figure out what was happening with Washburn fire lookout.
09:19:05 <Kat> Daoisy

09:22:30 <Kat> Old Tardy
09:24:34 <Joe> I know they are afraid to touch the cameras settings, (Murphys law) but I wish the would up the bit rate a bit this pulsing is driving me craizer.
09:27:55 <Kat> I agree Joe! NOt that you're crazier! LOL

09:51:11 <Kevin L™🌵> We were 35° when I woke up.
09:51:45 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, oh wow that's colder then where I am.
09:53:05 <LindaG> No snow yet for me, might get a dusting over night.
09:53:37 <Kat> I thought you would hve gotten a little last night Linda
09:54:58 <Eric> BSBS
09:55:05 <Kat> Steaming BSB

10:06:01 <LindaG> Bye
10:15:33 <ynpvisitor118> of
11:02:24 <Eric> Turkey hangover here I guess :-P Everyone so quiet
11:02:51 <Dave from B™> Eric, please let sleeping turkeys lie:)
11:03:28 <turkey> Your sleeping?
11:03:44 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't think the turkeys are sleeping Dave.
11:03:53 <Dave from B™> Not me...Haven't been at work since Friday and am way behind
11:07:53 <Dave from B™> My mom always told me the raccoons in the middle of the road were sleeping
11:08:19 <Kevin L™🌵> How about the skunks?
11:10:32 <turkey> Don't play with the striped kitties.
11:11:04 <Kevin L™🌵> You only do it once!
11:11:41 <turkey> Some dogs never learn that.
11:12:31 <turkey> Some dogs never learn not to play with prickley ones either.
11:13:55 <turkey> So what is on the menu this week? Turkey and dumplings, turkey noodle soup, turkey pot pie, or turkey chili?
11:14:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Nothing left here!
11:14:38 <turkey> They eat the bones?
11:14:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Just about.
11:15:26 <Kevin L™🌵> There were 17 of us.
11:16:10 <turkey> I thought about you the other day. Read some crazy news story about how kitchens will be smaller because people will not need to stock up on food with all the instant shopping services.
11:17:02 <Molly B. Denim> I made a really satisfying white turkey chili over the weekend.
11:17:27 <turkey> Not sure how that will work where there are fires, floods, or earthquakes?
11:19:38 <turkey> Ebay sends me a marketing email. Click on the show in browser link and get this. Our Apologies. View In Browser Not Available at the moment.
11:23:47 <Dave from B™> Food delivery services to your house are a BIG waste of money
11:24:05 <Dave from B™> It increase your food costs by 2 or 3 times
11:25:00 <Katie> Food delivery services are as insane, economically and environmentally as k-cups.
11:25:32 <Dave from B™> It only benefits people unable to leave their house
11:25:40 <Eric> Almost as crazy as delivering envelopes of paper to your house :-P
11:26:17 <Dave from B™> Thankfully, mostly junk mail if my mailbox these days
11:26:23 <Dave from B™> in*
11:26:27 <Kevin L™🌵> I do miss the milkman.
11:26:57 <turkey> But they will deliver in green electric self driving wagons.
11:27:30 <Katie> Milk delivery was from locally produced milk. It made MORE sense than shipping to distribution centers then shipping back to grocery stores.
11:29:40 <Rice> Dairy Farmers can afford to stay in business. Think about how long you have been paying $2 gal, price of everything else has gone up.
11:30:27 <Rice> ^can't, makes a big difference to my point above...
11:30:38 <Kevin L™🌵> I always liked the milkman because he would give us ice cream sadwiches when Mom paid the bill.
11:31:32 <Rice> And the timeless joke about, are you sure the milkman wasnt your father?
11:32:43 <turkey> They will deliver milk from the dairy when doctors start making house calls.
11:32:57 <Cooper> Hi Rice, Kevin, Eric, Katie, Kat, Dave and everyone else:)
11:33:02 <Rice> I heard a stat, that Wisconsin will have lost 5,000 dairy farms to bankruptcy this year.
11:33:02 <Kevin L™🌵> My Grandpa was a turkey farmer. We had some great Thanksgiving dinners growing up.
11:33:07 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
11:33:21 <Katie> My cousins, 3rd generation dairy farmers, sold their dairy herd this year. He would say they were getting paid the same for milk as in 1981 but paying 2019 prices for all their expenses.
11:33:41 <Rice> Katie, Exactly.
11:34:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Better to do corn and soybeans.
11:34:57 <turkey> They were buying wrong. Paying retail for feed, and selling milk wholesale.
11:35:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Farmers have always worked hard for their money. They get just a small percentage.
11:35:35 <Rice> Problem partly is the farmers, milk prices are low, so they put on more cows, so supply of milk goes up, and price goes down farther.
11:36:23 <Rice> If every farmer reduced the # of cows they milked by 10%, milk prices would soar, and they would make more, but it doesnt happen.
11:36:41 <Kevin L™🌵> What you need to do is come up with more uses for the stuff. Corn can be used a whole lot of ways.
11:37:26 <Rice> I grew up in Dairy farming, and still work in the industry, it is sad, but for many people it is the only way of life they know.
11:37:31 <turkey> was just going to ask about daisy
11:37:41 <Rice> Kevin L™🌵, Make Ethanol out of milk, that might work......
11:38:19 <Dave from B™> Milk farmers need to form a cartel
11:39:29 <turkey> milk cows, feed pigs, sell to over price ny chefs.
11:42:01 <turkey> have cows, grow hemp to feed cows, sell for 10x more in small bottles with exaggerated claims on the label.
11:43:26 <Joe> I did the work at my friends dairy farm/ranch for just three weeks so he could take some time off, I have never worked that hard in my life, I still don't know how he and his wife did it day after day, rarely having time off
11:44:10 <turkey> They get time off, twice a day between milking.
11:45:47 <turkey> Our family background was farmers. Events were always planned around planting and harvest. Dairy would be impossible to plan around.
11:49:05 <turkey> Well, enjoy the steam.
12:45:44 <Eric> kinda in the sweet spot for BH now
12:46:20 <Kevin L™🌵> It will go after dark. I have already been everywhere I need to go.
12:47:06 <Eric> BH :heart: you Kevin!
12:47:09 <Katie> Or go in 20 minutes when we have to be on OF
12:47:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I had to leave during Indy yesterday.
13:03:08 <Katie> big splash at BH a moment ago
13:19:19 <ynpvisitor47> OF
13:26:26 <Katie> BSB
13:26:42 <ynpvisitor111> so now is it hours away?
13:27:23 <Katie> *shrug* There was a good splash from Bee around 1303
13:27:55 <ynpvisitor111> here's hoping BSB does not repeat yesterday's performance
13:35:00 <ynpvisitor111> BSB at 1326 is not on GT
13:35:13 <Dave from B™> Is it also time for Aurum?
13:35:27 <Katie> could be
13:57:18 <Katie> riverside
14:10:26 <ynpvisitor88> Webcam problem season? NPS site says I need flash. Lots of starts and stops here.
14:10:40 <ynpvisitor88> And instant replays
14:14:17 <Katie> It hasn't been perfect, but I've only had some lag on the public stream
14:16:30 <Dave from B™> Chancellor, how are things in snowy GF? You guys got hammered.
14:16:48 <Joe> #88, nps and this site both need flash, the video is choppy because the settings are the same as when the radio was failing, they feel they have a good thing going and are not touching anything
14:17:51 <ynpvisitor88> No, I am flashless and will always be. They are not doing HTML5 now. Were last week.
14:17:55 <Joe> If you want to see bad again wait until April
14:18:47 <Dave from B™> I can't wait.....can we just see bad now:P
14:19:25 <Joe> AH1 I did not know that NPS/pixelcaster changed to html5, if they did, thats great
14:19:47 <Joe> 1ah!*
14:19:48 <ynpvisitor88> When it works.
14:20:14 <Chancellor> We had about 14 inches of new snow over the Thanksgiving holiday
14:21:10 <Dave from B™> Sounds like you are well on your way to setting records this year if this keeps up.
14:23:52 <Chancellor> it has certinly been a record year for snowfall in Central Montana
14:29:42 <Dave from B™> We have had 3-4 storms already but not nearly as bad as north of Billings. We rec'd 6" over Thanksgiving
14:31:23 <Betty> good afternoon all
14:31:34 <Katie> Hi Betty
14:31:42 <ynpvisitor88> Billings has more coal and oil caused global warming
14:31:46 <ynpvisitor88> ola
14:32:33 <Betty> hi Katie, ynpvisitor88
14:33:32 <Kevin L™🌵> It is Dave's fish fumes
14:34:03 <Betty> hi Kevin L™🌵 and Dave from B™
14:34:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi Betty
14:34:31 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
14:35:30 <Dave from B™> Betty, I have a question for you. We are going to a dinner club this weekend and need to bring a German desert. Any ideas? Kevin, you can chime in as well since you lived there for awhile.
14:35:55 <Eric> BH is past due......ready for an eruption now :-D
14:35:56 <ynpvisitor88> beer
14:36:09 <Katie> I like that answer
14:36:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Spaghetti Ice Cream
14:36:43 <Joe> They keep calling these weather incidents "records" I remember in the 60's and 70's the snow always hid the fences along the roads until late spring, and those were normal years, what do they do, do not look at that just compare things to the last half decade???
14:37:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Apple Strudel is also good Dave.
14:37:52 <Eric> Yes, I think a buck a piece at mcdonalds :-D
14:38:02 <Dave from B™> That has been mentioned as a possibility
14:38:29 <Eric> https://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en-us/product/baked-hot-apple-pie.html
14:38:49 <Eric> There you go, stop on the way and put it in a fancy box. Nobody will know.
14:38:54 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Eric. There is a McDonalds on the way:P
14:39:11 <Kevin L™🌵> I would know
14:39:18 <Katie> I can "feel" Betty's eye roll
14:39:42 <Eric> Betty has probably never had mcdonalds german apple strudel
14:39:45 <Dave from B™> Me too, Katie
14:39:50 <Betty> apple strudl is not so easy to do
14:40:01 <Dave from B™> My wife likes challenges
14:40:06 <ynpvisitor88> That is like bringing potato buds to a pot luck.
14:40:33 <Eric> are potato buds the same thing as tater tots?
14:41:30 <Dave from B™> How many different names are there for tater tots, anyway. Has to be at least a half dowen
14:41:34 <Dave from B™> dozen*
14:41:45 <Dave from B™> gems, oles
14:41:46 <Eric> Know if you wanted french dish, I would go with pommes dauphines
14:42:18 <Kevin L™🌵> https://www.thespruceeats.com/spaghetti-ice-cream-sundae-from-germany-1446804
14:43:17 <Kevin L™🌵> You also have the potato cakes at Arby's. I like them with Arby's sauce.
14:43:58 <ynpvisitor88> These sound good. Gebrannte Mandeln
14:44:14 <Eric> Nice, i like that german spaghetti dessert!
14:44:48 <Dave from B™> That does sound good
14:44:49 <ynpvisitor88> Potato buds = instant taters
14:44:54 <Kevin L™🌵> It is really good Eric.
14:45:06 <Eric> We have a lot of places around here that make filbert nuts like those 88
14:45:27 <Eric> oh right...that is a brand name!
14:46:21 <Dave from B™> Whose filbert and why is he nuts?
14:46:22 <ynpvisitor88> You could surprise people with these. kandierte aepfel
14:46:58 <Betty> do you have curd cheese?
14:47:08 <Dave from B™> 88, my wife would eat them all before the dinner
14:47:37 <Dave from B™> Betty, I know she could find it
14:47:45 <Betty> we call it Quark
14:48:12 <ynpvisitor88> Quarkbällchen
14:48:33 <ynpvisitor1> I prefer Marzipan
14:48:36 <Betty> Quarkbällchen are great
14:49:05 <Betty> completely different to Marzipan
14:49:29 <ynpvisitor88> There is always ye ole funnel cake.
14:49:43 <ynpvisitor1> my Grandmother use to make it for me
14:49:58 <Kevin L™🌵> German pastries are great too.
14:50:09 <ynpvisitor1> and my other Grandma made Fruit Soup
14:51:21 <ynpvisitor1> Spasmodic is happy
14:51:31 <Dave from B™> That's 2 emails to my wife already:)
14:52:10 <Katie> that was a near miss
14:52:22 <Betty> OF
14:53:28 <Betty> how about Mascarpone, Dave?
14:54:07 <Kevin L™🌵> In case you don't have one Dave: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BV7B2S/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
14:54:20 <ynpvisitor88> You could cheat. https://www.allmenus.com/mt/bridger/308964-das-kuchenhaus-bakery/menu/
14:54:30 <Dave from B™> Betty, that's a desert or a topping?
14:54:42 <Betty> ingredient
14:55:10 <Katie> Marscapone would be available in Billings grocery stores
14:55:30 <Betty> kind of fat italian cream
14:55:58 <ynpvisitor88> Dave swore off fat
14:56:03 <Katie> commonly described on this side of the pond as an Italian cream cheese
14:56:22 <Dave from B™> Yeah....I might not eat all day Saturday until dinner:)
14:57:11 <Betty> it is only one ingredient of a delicious desert
14:57:27 <Betty> easy to prepare
14:57:35 <Dave from B™> What is the desert called
14:57:38 <Katie> I haven't met a dish yet that contains marscapone that I haven't enjoyed. :)
14:57:58 <Betty> I´ll translate and send it to you
14:58:42 <ynpvisitor88> Need to translate. https://www.einfachbacken.de/rezepte/quarkbaellchen-einfach-selber-machen
14:58:48 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Betty. My wife is interested....her one word text was "delicious"
14:59:29 <ynpvisitor88> Well, no bee for me. Enjoy talking good food.
14:59:51 <Chancellor> for Joe above: https://www.greatfallstribune.com/story/news/2019/12/01/fall-2020-snowiest-record-great-falls/4346877002/
15:00:16 <Betty> it´s with grapes and cookies
15:00:45 <Betty> you don´t want to share if you tasted
15:02:10 <Dave from B™> Chancellor, that is nuts. 60" before winter
15:02:40 <Chancellor> yep, just this fall
15:04:19 <Dave from B™> Our annual record is 103.4" set in 2017-18
15:04:52 <Dave from B™> If memory serves me, you had a bad winter last year also
15:05:43 <Katie> The Hi-Line and Anaconda certainly got wholloped last year
15:09:37 <Joe> nks, Chancellor, I missed the word 'fall' :)
15:16:20 <Chancellor> :)
15:18:13 <Katie> Montana missed the word "fall."
15:20:21 <Chancellor> Actually we will almost certainly have the highest snowfall for the 125 years of records for the calendar year 2019
15:21:01 <Dave from B™> I thought we had 2 seasons in MT: Winter and road construction
15:22:49 <Katie> I maintain we have six seasons in Montana: early winter, mid winter, late winter, spring, summer and fall - but we don't always get all six in the same year (this year we went right from sprint to early winter, skipping summer & fall)
15:41:07 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
15:42:32 <Betty> I sent it, Dave
15:43:13 <Eric> night dave
15:43:21 <Eric> Time for BH
15:43:32 <Betty> night Dave, hi Eric
15:43:39 <Eric> Hi Betty
15:45:11 <Betty> I sent the recipe to you too, Eric and Kevin
15:45:28 <Dave from B™> Thanks Betty
15:45:41 <Dave from B™> I'll take a look when I get home
15:45:52 <Betty> sure
15:46:50 <Dave from B™> I'll give you the rest of the menu when I get home
15:47:00 <Betty> grand
15:47:29 <Molly B. Denim> Big start!
15:48:55 <Eric> Thanks Betty
15:51:49 <Molly B. Denim> ...
15:53:23 <Molly B. Denim> almost, but not quite, a pause
15:54:44 <Molly B. Denim> about 8 minutes
15:55:34 <Molly B. Denim> jetting
15:56:54 <Molly B. Denim> still playing
15:58:24 <Molly B. Denim> looks finished
16:01:16 <Betty> a good one Jimbo. took me some time :-)
16:02:47 <GO BEEHIVE> i am ready for cam
16:03:06 <Betty> hi Graham
16:03:18 <GO BEEHIVE> hello
16:03:26 <Betty> I´m ready for sleep
16:03:29 <Katie> I wasn't watching time (obviously). Released
16:03:51 <GO BEEHIVE> thanks, i only just logged in
16:03:53 <Katie> Hopefully Beehive, Aurum and Lion in your shift. *fingers crossed*
16:04:05 <Betty> enjoy Beehive, night all
16:16:44 <Eric> Night Betty
16:20:27 <Katie> Interesting sky in the static view
16:23:03 <GO BEEHIVE> OF
16:24:31 <ynpvisitor8> moody sky behind OF
16:25:40 <ynpvisitor8> agree the static sky is cool
16:37:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Well I gave BH a good chance.
16:41:39 <Eric> bhi steam?
16:41:51 <Eric> blurry down there, hard to see
16:45:42 <ynpvisitor97> just the one BSB? hmmm
16:45:54 <ynpvisitor97> hours ago
16:49:35 <Eric> Guess it's cold and doesn't want to come out and play
17:11:56 <ynpvisitor97> oh well, though interesting if there was mid cycle BSB
17:13:06 <ynpvisitor97> Aurum has been elusive too
17:13:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave broke them.
17:13:44 <GO BEEHIVE> just saw we lost the turkeys :(
17:14:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Rangers goalie just scored one for the knights.
17:14:46 <Eric> Yep, thanksgiving is over Graham
17:14:49 <GO BEEHIVE> they all count
17:15:16 <Eric> Maybe soon we will have some holiday cheer here :-D
17:16:04 <ynpvisitor97> are you making sure the cam works for the holidays?
17:16:16 <ynpvisitor97> mine is freezing a lot lately
17:16:39 <ynpvisitor97> splashes at BH
17:16:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Goal! 2-0 in the first 3:50
17:17:01 <Eric> I can't do anything for a failing cam
17:17:19 <Eric> Call your local park representative
17:17:21 <ynpvisitor97> for failing transmissions, I bet the cam is just fine
17:18:15 <ynpvisitor97> it's crazy on social media how much people are against WiFi upgrades for Yellowstone, now Grand Canyon too.
17:19:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Why don't we just tear out the roads too? Cars and buses are noisy.
17:19:34 <ynpvisitor97> yeah, who needs pavement
17:24:30 <ynpvisitor70> the big geyser has a little water late today - not too hot though, went to 15C
17:29:14 <ynpvisitor97> might have gone there before this, logger was down
17:30:10 <ynpvisitor70> it was just frozen - down is negative 40, it stayed at 0
17:43:29 <ynpvisitor45> I am fine with no wifi in parks. If people need to talk & text, they can stay home.
17:43:55 <ynpvisitor45> If they do not like it, it will cut down on the visitors.
17:44:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Makes it tough to use GT
17:44:29 <ynpvisitor45> Minor
17:45:07 <GO BEEHIVE> some of us keep in touch with the office in the park too ... why dont you like us having that option?
17:45:09 <ynpvisitor45> May as well put cable tv in the rooms of the inns
17:45:19 <GO BEEHIVE> if you dont want it, dont use it
17:45:39 <ynpvisitor45> You do not give me that option.
17:46:11 <GO BEEHIVE> i like options
17:46:23 <Kevin L™🌵> It is called a power button
17:46:49 <ynpvisitor45> Most of us are old enough to remember what it was like with out it. We all had fun and survived just fine.
17:47:10 <GO BEEHIVE> if you dont want it, dont use it
17:47:17 <GO BEEHIVE> but dont stop others from using it
17:47:23 <ynpvisitor45> I am sure Graham would like it if I used his power button.
17:47:33 <Kevin L™🌵> I also remember life in the basin before the FRS radio.
17:47:38 <ynpvisitor45> The problem is the other suing it.
17:48:12 <GO BEEHIVE> in my opinion its better with comms...i remember not having a clue what was going on, or waiting for Ralphs weekly sheet of paper. GT and other online access is wy better
17:48:28 <ynpvisitor45> Walking down the middle of the boardwalk talking on there damn phone.
17:48:52 <GO BEEHIVE> you can always bring your horse and carriage instead of driving
17:49:17 <GO BEEHIVE> then you an walk around everywhere as it was traditional
17:49:26 <ynpvisitor45> If people were polite and respectful I would not have a problem. Problem is they are jerks.
17:50:13 <GO BEEHIVE> i bet thats been said every generation
17:50:43 <GO BEEHIVE> i cant bekieve the women dont wear long skirts in the basin any more
17:50:47 <ynpvisitor45> And there is an easy fix to this generation and phone use.
17:51:07 <GO BEEHIVE> you should not go to the park
17:51:21 <ynpvisitor45> No, you should stay home
17:51:42 <GO BEEHIVE> haha
17:52:00 <GO BEEHIVE> only let polite people in
17:52:11 <GO BEEHIVE> have the polite police on the boardwalks
17:52:11 <ynpvisitor45> Like I said
17:52:29 <GO BEEHIVE> personally i think kids and old people get in my way and should be banned
17:52:53 <ynpvisitor45> Along with democrats.
17:53:08 <GO BEEHIVE> all polititions
17:53:21 <ynpvisitor45> I am not here to banter with fools. Later
17:53:52 <GO BEEHIVE> haha ..... then stop talking to yourself
17:54:23 <Eric> Nice...kids, we can all get along :-P
17:54:40 <Eric> Don't make me pull this webcam over!
17:54:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Take your phone and go home Graham!
17:55:20 <GO BEEHIVE> progress will come to the parks a it has in the past ... the younger generation will be paying for the parks so we want them to visit
17:55:43 <GO BEEHIVE> people expect connectivity now
17:56:23 <Eric> We are talking about wifi for park employees who have to live in a modern age! Not recognizing their needs is being pretty selfish IMHO.
17:57:10 <Eric> OF
17:57:37 <GO BEEHIVE> wifi for everyone
17:58:17 <Eric> meh, I am fine either way....it would be nice for visitors, especially along roadways for emergencies.
17:59:15 <GO BEEHIVE> and i have neded nework connections for work and flight changes .... it allows me to visit when work is crazy
17:59:15 <Eric> Also, I vote for a pub with beer and pizza for visitors in the OF Lodge :-D
17:59:50 <GO BEEHIVE> and food carts down to FYM and Norris
18:00:13 <Eric> Yes, it would be nice graham. But I know those things are possible right now with verizon phones. So I cannot complain too much.
18:00:20 <Kevin L™🌵> With Darigold chocolate milk
18:00:30 <GO BEEHIVE> streaming video from Norris so we know how good the minors are
18:00:41 <Eric> I just want beer and pizza in the lodge...it's not too much to ask for.
18:01:01 <Eric> The BVs would not like that.
18:01:39 <ynpvisitor70> the logger gives us good info - no need for a cam in the fog
18:03:45 <GO BEEHIVE> the bevs would love more wifi at Norris
18:04:55 <GO BEEHIVE> if you watch this cam you would enjoy LGB, F&M, Norris steaming cams
18:05:45 <ynpvisitor70> well I doubt it will happen, we are lucky to have loggers that update
18:06:46 <GO BEEHIVE> sometie there will be satcom thats usable and not too expensive, then its a game changer
18:07:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Goal!
18:11:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Goal!
18:11:29 <GO BEEHIVE> Dave should be happy too, up 2-0
18:11:56 <GO BEEHIVE> and Sbres up 5-0 - kcmule will be happy
18:13:32 <Kevin L™🌵> For sure. I am still nervous about the knights though.
18:17:05 <ynpvisitor63> Daisy due in 15 to 20 minutes
18:23:25 <ynpvisitor63> lion
19:46:04 <ynpvisitor43> Lion
