05:25:48 <Ryan (work)> Good morning
05:26:05 <Joe> Good Morninr Rice and Ryan
05:26:22 <Joe> morning*
05:26:27 <Ryan (work)> Nice to be back here semi-regularly. Its been a few years since i was able to be
05:27:42 <Joe> Nice to see you here enjoying the view,
05:27:45 <Rice> All you missed was the cam not working forever....
05:27:48 <Ryan (work)> Where are you guys from, Rice and Joe?
05:28:00 <Rice> Upstate NY, Binghamton
05:28:01 <Ryan (work)> Yeah, the view was gone for a while
05:28:10 <Joe> Wyoming
05:28:30 <Rice> We are not that far apart, you are near Pittsburg
05:28:53 <Ryan (work)> No we arent, compared to the distance to the park.
05:29:17 <Ryan (work)> Binghampton, that anywhere near Syracuse?
05:29:44 <Rice> South of Syracuse, on NY /PA Border,
05:30:32 <Joe> Daisy
05:30:37 <Rice> No P in Binghamton. We are not the Hampton's >(>(
05:31:05 <Ryan (work)> Thats ok, you forgot the H in Pittsburgh. Were a special burgh :D
05:31:24 <Rice> You got me, I'll call it even.
05:31:59 <Ryan (work)> Lots of friends in Syracuse that I'll be visiting some day. I'll probably be driving through your area some day lol
05:32:25 <Rice> That is funny I guess I never realized Pittsburgh had an H on it, learn something every day.
05:32:45 <Ryan (work)> Its funny, having lived near Pittsburgh for so long, seeing "Pittsburg" makes me feel itchy. Even after the last few years where I spent a lot of time in South Pittsburg, Tennessee.
05:33:01 <Ryan (work)> In someways, SP, TN is a second home and i still almost spell it with an h.
05:33:49 <Rice> If you came across 80, then 81 north to SYR, you can see the Feedmill I work at from the Highway in Binghamton.
05:34:05 <Rice> Joe, Where you from in WY?
05:34:25 <Ryan (work)> 80 is likely how id come in
05:34:31 <Joe> Thermopolis
05:34:55 <Rice> I've heard of that, but never been there.
05:36:01 <Joe> 200 miles from the Old faithful parking lot :)
05:36:02 <Rice> Is that an ice rink?
05:36:20 <Rice> Lucky
05:36:39 <Joe> Yes at Snow lodge
05:37:00 <Terry> Just tuned in, but wanted to say I live near Syracuse.
05:37:25 <Joe> snow blocking our view of the trees on the right
05:37:42 <Rice> 2,121 miles to Old faithful for me!
05:38:08 <Rice> Terry, where?
05:38:45 <Joe> Hello Terry

05:45:41 <Terry> I clocked 2,163 miles to Gardiner last April
05:46:43 <Joe> No, asking to sign in
05:47:15 <Ryan (work)> Thanks!
05:48:06 <Rice> Terry, Well then we are basically neighbors compared to all there others. Nice Cold Morning in Upstate NY
05:48:38 <Ryan (work)> How cold? Colder here than the park :)

05:51:52 <Rice> Joe1, Nice Catch
05:55:25 <Joe> I posted that for CraigC the other day, he identified a tree in the Myrid group as Sasquatch
06:00:51 <Joe> Myirad
06:01:07 <Joe> Myriad
06:01:32 <Joe> trouble typing correctly
06:25:35 <ynpvisitor42> OF window?
06:30:04 <Joe> Thanks was afk
06:30:41 <ynpvisitor42> :)
06:31:51 <Joe> May have just ended I think
06:35:27 <ynpvisitor42> agreed
06:35:28 <Ryan (work)> Looks like water in them there runoff chanells.
06:36:37 <Joe> Yes, looked at recording caughet it at end
06:41:01 <Joe> Grand?
06:41:15 <Ryan (work)> was just wondering that
06:42:47 <Ryan (work)> Lion
06:43:15 <CraigC> hey folks
06:43:57 <Joe> Hi Craig, cam is yours
06:45:24 <CraigC> trying to get used to new screen..... might be too large for my eyes
06:45:31 <CraigC> https://www.walmart.com/ip/Samsung-32-Curved-1920x1080-HDMI-60hz-4ms-FHD-LCD-Monitor-LC32F39MFUNXZA-Speakers-Included/374473324'
06:47:30 <Joe> Nice, I have coveted on of those :)
06:47:50 <CraigC> hard to beat that price
06:48:23 <CraigC> my daughter and her boyfriend both told me that they would buy it from me if I don't like it
06:49:33 <FrostytheGazer> CraigC I will try to relay to you where I am throughout the day. Mostly on the Hill
06:49:39 <CraigC> but I have to have 2 screens to manage the camop screen and also watch this view, which, IMO is clearer
06:50:00 <CraigC> hey Frosty.... Graham? Or Micah?
06:50:38 <FrostytheGazer> The latter
06:50:53 <CraigC> are you feeling better?
06:51:03 <FrostytheGazer> Thank God yes
06:51:13 <CraigC> good to hear
06:51:37 <CraigC> do you work during the winter there?
06:51:46 <Cooper> Ugg, Nightmares about being in Yellowstone, and I never saw one geyser. Not fun.:p
06:52:32 <FrostytheGazer> I'm a snowcoach driver this season yes.
06:52:59 <CraigC> FrostytheGazer, how are you liking that compared to summer?
06:53:10 <FrostytheGazer> It's different.
06:54:36 <CraigC> are you off today?
06:55:07 <Cooper> Hi kitty
06:55:14 <FrostytheGazer> Yes I am.
06:55:23 <KittyM> Hey Cooper, Micah, Craig Joe
06:55:29 <CraigC> hey Kitty
06:55:31 <FrostytheGazer> Gonna go see if I can catch the whole South Bubbler series.
06:56:21 <CraigC> does 27 degrees seem accurate?
06:56:53 <FrostytheGazer> Yes.
06:57:09 <FrostytheGazer> But the windchill is probably gonna be a whole lot of suck.
06:59:42 <CraigC> what food services do they have there for the winter?
07:01:21 <FrostytheGazer> The employee dining room, the snowlodge restaurant, and the snowlodge geyser grill. That's it.
07:02:26 <Ryan (work)> morning Micah
07:02:59 <FrostytheGazer> But no public services are open till the 15th so I suspect I'll be 100% alone today.
07:03:21 <CraigC> how many employees in OF area now?
07:03:27 <FrostytheGazer> Morning Ryan.
07:03:38 <FrostytheGazer> Craig, about 200-250.
07:03:53 <CraigC> omg, way more than I owuld have guessed
07:04:10 <CraigC> I would have guessed 40 to 50
07:05:23 <FrostytheGazer> Yeah. It's a whole crew.
07:05:34 <FrostytheGazer> There's 22 snowcoach drivers alone.
07:06:38 <CraigC> do you drive to the gates to pick up people?
07:08:24 <FrostytheGazer> We drive into Mammoth.
07:12:50 <CraigC> Joe, controls seem pretty sluggish today
07:16:06 <Joe> Yes, It takes sometime before the camera moved
07:16:24 <Joe> moves*
07:20:41 <Joe> Craig, you may have a good view today, we had the fog from about mid night until 4 or so.
07:21:01 <CraigC> hope so
07:21:27 <CraigC> gets really boring during white outs
07:21:50 <CraigC> have to open up freecell
07:21:50 <Joe> :)
07:22:45 <Cooper> Nice Impo bursts
07:23:49 <Joe> how did the end of Grand look on your monitor? all I had was sparklies in the area
07:24:16 <CraigC> I just saw whiteness all over that area
07:24:38 <Joe> thanks
07:25:13 <CraigC> another 10 days and the days start getting longer :)
07:25:58 <Joe> Do you think the Samsung 28" monitor would do as well?
07:26:27 <CraigC> I would probably like that size better.... how good of price do they have?
07:27:25 <CraigC> this 32 is so huge on my desk.... last night I felt a little queasy after playing a video game on it
07:28:50 <Ryan (work)> Grotto
07:29:02 <Ryan (work)> 0727ie
07:29:20 <CraigC> OT also
07:29:24 <Ryan (work)> Steam was such that it could have been ns
07:30:07 <CraigC> you still want people to enter on GT for you?
07:31:04 <CraigC> bulger
07:31:14 <Ryan (work)> Nah i got them
07:31:22 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:34:24 <Joe> I like long days and short nights! If I remember the monitor was $129
07:35:16 <CraigC> Joe, I LOVE this site; you can select specific categories at the top; https://techbargains.com/
07:35:41 <Joe> Thanks, Craig
07:39:11 <CraigC> hey Dave
07:39:42 <Dave from B™> Morning Craig and all other chat room geeks
07:40:05 <CraigC> ;)
07:40:11 <CraigC> isn't that redundant?
07:41:11 <Dave from B™> A little bit:)
07:45:31 <Dave from B™> Craig, what have you been up to? I haven't seen you here for a few days.
07:46:25 <CraigC> ughhhh.... I got sucked into a new video game. Red Dead Redemption. People have raved about it for years and it got released on PC last week
07:47:31 <CraigC> my daughter plays it on her xbox and when I watched her play it, I was amazed
07:48:00 <CraigC> 130GB drive space LOL
07:48:59 <Joe> Daisy has been running longer lately about ~2h 30 min + avg lately
07:49:25 <CraigC> OF is gonna own us in a min
07:50:10 <Dave from B™> Always nice to diversify your interests. How is the remodel going?
07:50:42 <Joe> yes! it always gets in the way but is nice to watch, although I do not post replays of OF :)
07:50:53 <CraigC> Dave from B™, kinda at a standstill, we're waiting for her b/f's uncle to come and build in the closet
07:52:46 <Dave from B™> Becca turned 21 yesterday. She and Parker return home from school today
07:53:05 <CraigC> christmas break?
07:53:31 <Dave from B™> yep
07:54:09 <CraigC> nice, be good to have a couple of weeks. YOU taking any time off?
07:54:48 <Dave from B™> Dec 24 from 1 pm until Dec 26 at 6 am
07:55:09 <Dave from B™> My time off is in Feb
07:55:17 <CraigC> whoa, what will you do with all that time?
07:55:34 <Dave from B™> Eat drink and watch presents being opened
07:56:43 <Dave from B™> I'm hitting it hard on exercise and snack avoidance until then. I need to get back to pre October vacation weight
07:57:34 <CraigC> how much do you have to lose?
07:59:12 <Dave from B™> I've lost 3 this week....need 4 more
07:59:35 <CraigC> wow, you only gained 7? good job
08:00:24 <Dave from B™> As long as I exercise 3-4 times a week I don't gain too much
08:00:46 <CraigC> of
08:01:11 <Dave from B™> It's easier now that we have changed our eating habits
08:01:29 <CraigC> good for you guys
08:02:57 <Ryan (work)> pan slightly to the VC?
08:03:00 <Ryan (work)> Micah is walking out
08:04:08 <Ryan (work)> good lord, OK then hahaha
08:04:36 <CraigC> need to check daisy
08:06:57 <Ryan (work)> thats him
08:07:01 <Ryan (work)> i think lol
08:07:42 <CraigC> said grey coat.... all I see is black and white out there
08:10:21 <Dave from B™> Really, Craig? You forgot to buy a color monitor?
08:10:44 <CraigC> or color retinas
08:11:04 <CraigC> he said he is going around the backside of OF
08:11:18 <ynpvisitor7> Ugh!
08:11:46 <CraigC> dome
08:12:19 <Dave from B™> It is supposed to snow 2-3' at higher elevation in YNP today
08:12:51 <CraigC> wow
08:13:34 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought 42° was bad
08:13:37 <Ryan (work)> Hmm, someone just blocked me on a caving facebook page.
08:14:04 <Ryan (work)> They had a post showing that the "caves" in their backyard in WV had rock art older than the stuff they just found in Indonesia.
08:14:28 <Ryan (work)> I tried to tell them that humans havent been in NA for 20,000 yrs, let alone drawing stuf for 40.
08:14:42 <Ryan (work)> I was told I'd be blocked by the original poster because I was a bully. OK.
08:16:21 <CraigC> stop being so mean to people
08:17:37 <CraigC> I'd guess 90% of my local Utah FB friends have put me on ignore for my Trump critical posts
08:17:40 <Ryan (work)> Now, in their defense. In between them telling me they were blocking me and them actually blocking me I commented that "David Dunning and Justin Krueger must have drawn them."
08:18:57 <CraigC> I don't get that reference, is that a caver thing?
08:19:22 <Ryan (work)> They posted photos of giant boulders that, with the right light angle, vaguely looked kind of like the easter island heads.
08:19:33 <Ryan (work)> No, its a reference to the Dunning Kruger effect
08:19:47 <CraigC> ??
08:20:10 <Ryan (work)> Cognitive bias
08:20:28 <Ryan (work)> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect
08:21:34 <Ryan (work)> Essentially something to the effect of not being cognizant enough to realize how low your cognitive abilities are.
08:21:56 <CraigC> LOL..... some prominent figure always in the news comes to mind
08:22:16 <Ryan (work)> She was ranting about how shes been asking since 2011 about these artwork in her backyard and "none of the "Experts" can tell me what they are"
08:22:28 <Ryan (work)> Thats because they. Are. Boudlers.
08:23:29 <Ryan (work)> But she blocked me and another prominent caver-gazer who also disgreed with her.
08:24:06 <Ryan (work)> Micah says that walking out in the snow is a lot of work
08:25:13 <Katie> Mornin
08:25:24 <Dave from B™> Ryan, you didn't tell her that it was the equivalent of Atlantis?
08:25:26 <CraigC> hey Katie
08:25:45 <Ryan (work)> No, I just told her that she was wrong lol
08:26:09 <Ryan (work)> Someone else tried to tell her of poli... whatever the effect is where we tend to see faces in things.
08:26:27 <Ryan (work)> they got blocked too. Fun morning on the caving pages.
08:26:32 <CraigC> Daisy either went during OF, or while there was heavy white out for the next 10 to 15 mins down basin
08:29:50 <Ryan (work)> dats him
08:29:57 <CraigC> is it a sasquatch?
08:30:10 <CraigC> we can watch animals ont he cam, but not people
08:30:19 <Kevin L™🌵> :P
08:30:36 <Ryan (work)> Right...
08:32:03 <CraigC> lets look at anemones
08:33:15 <CraigC> Katie, Micah is on the hill, I missed Daisy, haven't seen a Riverside either
08:34:24 <CraigC> marmot cave
08:35:20 <Ryan (work)> micah says we can follow him if we are bored lol
08:35:30 <Ryan (work)> i told him that hes the most interesting thing out there right now
08:36:24 <Ryan (work)> Little anemone is filling
08:36:59 <Katie> Well, that's an area we can see, so...
08:49:59 <Ryan (work)> bsb?
08:50:37 <Ryan (work)> nah
08:50:42 <Ryan (work)> bad wind angle
08:51:07 <Katie> Yup. Blowing steam the wrong way and making the camera focus hunt
08:51:17 <Eric> Morning
08:51:30 <Eric> Micah must be out there...someone standing at anemone :-P
08:51:31 <Katie> Hi Eric
08:51:36 <Katie> Yup, that's Micah
08:51:37 <Eric> Hi Katie
08:51:42 <Eric> haha!
08:52:08 <Katie> I only know because Ryan said so. :)
08:52:22 <Ryan (work)> ive been getting photos form him
08:52:28 <Ryan (work)> hes waiting for big anemone, its at 20m now
08:52:29 <Eric> Glad he made it up to the basin
09:05:51 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
09:31:20 <Kevin L™🌵> It is great seeing GT posts without a wc
09:32:26 <What Do You Zin> So what's a bubblecrash?
09:33:19 <Kevin L™🌵> When it gets the bubbles and almost erupts then drains.
09:33:36 <What Do You Zin> Thank you!
09:34:16 <Dave from B™> I thought it had to do with drinking too much champagne
09:37:43 <Kevin L™🌵> For you it does Dave.
09:41:31 <Dave from B™> No bubbling consumes by me
09:45:52 <What Do You Zin> I didn't think bubblecrash meant when the 2-liter bottle of soda goes flat.
09:46:40 <Dave from B™> haha
09:47:44 <Dave from B™> Morning Lori S
09:47:58 <Lori S> Howdy Dave from B™
09:48:02 <ynpvisitor66> Micah posted there is 18” of snow he has to plow through. Exaggerate much??
09:48:23 <ynpvisitor66> Certainly not on the bw
09:48:46 <ynpvisitor66> Maybe by the bridge?
09:48:53 <Ryan (work)> BAck from lunch.
09:49:01 <Ryan (work)> 66, thats exactly where he was talking about.
09:49:01 <Lori S> OF on delay
09:49:04 <Dave from B™> I imagine that is a drift level
09:49:20 <Lori S> WB Ryan
09:49:29 <ynpvisitor66> Ryan, by the bridge?
09:49:47 <Ryan (work)> Yes and up on to the hill. Assume, much? :)
09:50:17 <Lori S> Twas quite windy yesterday. Drifting I'm sure
09:50:19 <ynpvisitor66> Reality of looking at the bw is all
09:50:31 <Ryan (work)> Sorry, I can be a bit defensive of the other Sputs.
09:50:51 <Lori S> Ryan (work), good character to have :)
09:51:08 <ynpvisitor66> When do you guys outgrow being Sputs?
09:51:13 <Ryan (work)> You could've asked where there could have been 18in of snow rather than saying it was an exaggeration. Theres no snow at all on the parking lot hot spots.
09:51:16 <Katie> We can't judge snow depth on boardwalks from this view. His photo shows considerable snowpack on the boardwalk but we still can't judge depth (or density)
09:51:29 <Ryan (work)> Thanks, Kite.
09:51:41 <Ryan (work)> 66, you never outgrow being a Sput. It isnt an age thing.
09:51:55 <Dave from B™> Ryan, has he mentioned an ice bowl at Aurum or sliipery slope around BH?
09:52:12 <ynpvisitor66> Just wondering. Sputs for life it is then
09:52:37 <Ryan (work)> The five of us have been through a lot, sometimes literally saving each others lives over the last few years. :live:
09:52:49 <Ryan (work)> Dave, no not that I am aware of. I dont think hes been over to Aurum yet
09:53:07 <Lori S> human on the BW
09:53:33 <Dave from B™> Are you sure it's human?:D
09:53:52 <Lori S> Well, that's for Micah to answer. :p
09:54:56 <Ryan (work)> Addendum to a previous comment: The Sputs don't grow :lol:
09:55:19 <Ryan (work)> You cant out grow something if you dont grow!
09:57:19 <ynpvisitor61> the next generation of Sputs will kick the older ones out
09:58:05 <Ryan (work)> We're gonna live forever. So far, so good.
09:58:41 <Dave from B™> The next generation of Sputs could be called "Bubblers"
09:59:03 <Dave from B™> Or "Little Squirts"
09:59:09 <Ryan (work)> Hahah, yes.
09:59:18 <Lori S> And when they fall, it will be a Bubble Crash
09:59:32 <Ryan (work)> :lol:
10:00:03 <Ryan (work)> Micah says that Depression has risen a couple inches. Or a foot. He doesn't know.
10:00:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Does that make me a fumarole?
10:01:03 <Lori S> Speaking of Bubblers, howz Bee doin?
10:01:25 <Katie> Hasn't been much activity around Bee so far
10:01:28 <Ryan (work)> Splashy and grumbly according to Micah
10:01:48 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
10:02:44 <Lori S> I gave Bob (at OF today) the Castle, Grand, Bee predictions. He rolled his eyes at me. LOL
10:03:17 <Lori S> Opposites attract I guess
10:06:46 <Ryan (work)> Micah reports the following:
10:07:28 <Ryan (work)> "and depression drained completely into the bowels of the Earth. Never to erupt again. Or maybe it just had another bubble crash. Who knows."
10:08:07 <Ryan (work)> Also: "There are now two little bubblers active behind beehive. One on the right is spitting."
10:08:09 <Lori S> :)
10:08:10 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
10:08:18 <Ryan (work)> Says given the snow and wind direction that watching them directly is hard.
10:08:44 <Lori S> Which direction is "behind"?
10:10:39 <Rice> What is a "bubble crash"?
10:12:18 <Eric> Maybe Micah is talking about south bubbler
10:12:52 <Dave from B™> Rice, I think bubble crash has something to due with bubble tea
10:12:56 <Ryan (work)> He says towards cam. But I know he knows what the south bubbler is
10:13:01 <Eric> Or use this page and he can chat too: https://chat.geysertimes.org/mchat.php
10:13:15 <Lori S> Eric, :thumbsup:
10:13:20 <Ryan (work)> A bubble crash is when Depression rises to overflow, pushes, and then makes bubbles and crashes.
10:13:30 <Ryan (work)> Essentially a "false start" (vomits)
10:13:43 <Ryan (work)> He says its neither north nor south vent
10:14:31 <Eric> Nor East or West
10:15:06 <Eric> Out in the snow is Micah sharply dressed!
10:15:09 <What Do You Zin> Where is Micah located that he can see all these bubble crashes?
10:15:22 <Eric> He is standing in front of us :-P
10:15:26 <ynpvisitor53> Standing at BH?
10:15:27 <What Do You Zin> By Beehive, right?
10:15:31 <Katie> He was standing near Depression at the time. Now he is at Beehive.
10:15:46 <What Do You Zin> :thumbsup:
10:16:14 <Eric> That looks like south bubbler, or what we have been calling south that is active right now
10:16:41 <Eric> But there could be some mis-interpretation of holes from this distance
10:17:02 <Lori S> "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays Micah from the swift completion of his appointed rounds."
10:17:19 <Dave from B™> haha Lori
10:17:27 <ynpvisitor53> traitor, he should be at Anemone!
10:17:28 <Ryan (work)> Or not swift lol
10:18:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I wish FedEx in Phoenix had that attitude.
10:18:19 <Micah> I'm currently walking laps between Beehive and depression
10:18:49 <Micah> There is 10-12 inches of snow on the bw. 18 inches down by the bridge.
10:18:52 <Lori S> Wave, Micah. :)
10:19:06 <Micah> ~~~~~~
10:19:26 <Micah> Theres calm gaps where the wind isn't bad
10:19:27 <Lori S> :)
10:20:21 <Eric> Stay warm out there micah
10:20:28 <Eric> Movement is kee!
10:20:31 <Eric> or key!
10:21:00 <Micah> Copper kettle in ovf as usual
10:22:42 <Eric> Keep ears eyes out for aurum....at 18.5 hours and intervals have been 5-6h
10:22:53 <Eric> If it hasn't gone recently, it's due
10:23:41 <Eric> Lion is probably dead for the next 5-6 hours
10:24:16 <Micah> Maybe I'll wander up there. Standby.
10:24:27 <Eric> :thumbsup:
10:24:43 <Eric> Improve those quads ;-P
10:24:54 <Micah> Mouth ie
10:25:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Hazelnuts keep you warm.
10:25:20 <Eric> Dome reported ie from webcam 2 hours ago...surprised we haven't seen more
10:26:34 <Eric> I think Aurum looks hot up there...but hard to differentiate steam zoomed out.
10:26:47 <Micah> Tbh I haven't been looking
10:27:03 <Micah> Silver spring is high though
10:28:01 <Micah> Just almost faceplanted breaking through hidden ice crust by Lion.
10:28:37 <Eric> spikes Micah!
10:28:54 <Eric> they are super cheap and easy to put on!
10:29:06 <Micah> It's not hard packed ice.
10:29:17 <Eric> spikes work great for snow too
10:29:17 <Micah> Just a small crust under the surface
10:29:31 <Ryan (work)> We should zoom in I want to see this
10:29:41 <Eric> Micah faceplanting?
10:30:02 <Ryan (work)> Were like a family. Externally we will defend to the death. Internally I wanna see him wipe out.
10:30:14 <Eric> :-D
10:30:37 <Micah> At ear. Catching breath.
10:30:46 <Ryan (work)> So yeah, he don't need no spikes, Eric! Now, can we zoom in so I can see what happens because he doesnt have spikes?
10:30:56 <Eric> You need to come down and do some hikes with me Micah!
10:31:10 <Eric> We can go climb volcanoes :-D
10:31:48 <Micah> Pendant has a higher water level but remains perpetual
10:33:09 <Micah> New features at trail Junction have water but are no longer bursting.
10:33:35 <Eric> interesting
10:33:53 <Eric> lot more surface on that feature...probably weather affected I bet.
10:34:02 <ynpvisitor53> Texting while walking is dangerous.
10:34:49 <Micah> Not when you stop every time you reply.
10:34:49 <ynpvisitor53> Watching Micah walk is like watching a race. Don't want anyone hurt, but more exciting if they crash.
10:34:59 <Eric> haha
10:35:15 <Eric> Micah is now a spectator sport!
10:35:21 <Micah> At least I'm not snapchatting and walking
10:35:30 <Eric> hot or not?
10:35:31 <ynpvisitor53> I know, Kevin watches for the commercials.
10:35:38 <Micah> Aurum is hot.
10:35:44 <Eric> speaking about Aurum not Micah :-P
10:35:48 <Eric> cool
10:36:05 <Micah> 3:00 vent erupting.
10:36:06 <Eric> I think we have a while on BH
10:36:38 <Eric> Hi Betty
10:36:50 <Betty> whooo, Micah is in the park :-D
10:37:02 <Betty> hi Eric and Micah
10:37:08 <Betty> hi all
10:37:32 <Lori S> Hi Betty!
10:37:42 <Lori S> Eric, https://www.forbes.com/sites/jeffbercovici/2014/06/17/the-new-hot-or-not-like-tinder-but-just-for-fun/#89faff53814a
10:37:54 <Betty> hi Lori S
10:38:31 <Eric> I remember when that site was created :-P
10:38:48 <Micah> Hi Betty.
10:39:07 <Eric> Yep, Micah is at Aurum right now
10:39:09 <Betty> seems you are on the hill?
10:39:18 <Betty> thx Eric
10:39:19 <Eric> If we zoomed, we could see him.
10:39:36 <Eric> Not sure who has the controls right now
10:39:41 <Ryan (work)> I can see him
10:39:54 <Ryan (work)> black speck on the BW by the railing
10:40:00 <Betty> hey Ryan (work)
10:40:04 <ynpvisitor53> I think he is hiding.
10:41:32 <Lori S> ynpvisitor53, camop or Micah?
10:41:45 <Ryan (work)> probably put his phone away
10:42:03 <Ryan (work)> hard to text with bare fingers in this weather.
10:42:15 <Eric> hopefully he has touch gloves!
10:42:24 <Katie> I *think* Kevin has controls now. I was relieved promptly at 10:00, as scheduled. :0
10:43:00 <Eric> personally I have touch gloves under thicker shells. I can yank off the shells to do phone stuff, but still keep my hands warm briefly
10:43:16 <Lori S> Katie, :thumbsup: maybe out with the cj=hickens
10:43:20 <Lori S> *chickens
10:43:26 <Eric> or napping :-P
10:44:02 <Betty> or both
10:44:28 <Lori S> :p
10:44:58 <ynpvisitor53> Out in the depot doing elf stuff.
10:45:00 <Betty> >(
10:45:37 <Micah> I'm still here. Just not a lot to reporr
10:46:14 <Eric> .
10:46:15 <Eric> .
10:46:16 <Eric> aurum
10:46:18 <Eric> .
10:46:18 <Eric> .
10:46:27 <Betty> woot
10:46:36 <Lori S> delayed and waiting
10:46:48 <Micah> Nevermind
10:46:50 <Katie> Is Kevin missing Aurum?
10:46:55 <Betty> ok, Kevin IS away
10:47:03 <Eric> napping
10:47:23 <Eric> seemed small
10:47:36 <Micah> It got bigger near the end there
10:47:58 <Eric> Glad you wondered up there Micah :-D
10:49:18 <Lori S> That's some delay
10:49:22 <Lori S> There it is
10:49:35 <Micah> The cork popping burst happened right as I hit send on "nothing to report"
10:49:43 <Betty> wow, Lori
10:49:55 <Lori S> Better not use any wc times from me today
10:50:16 <Dave from B™> Welcome home, Micah
10:50:24 <Micah> Ty Dave
10:50:28 <Betty> dome ie
10:50:43 <Betty> hi Dave from B™
10:50:50 <Lori S> I refreshed
10:51:44 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
10:53:00 <ynpvisitor53> I think Dave should go down in the freezer to show solidarity with Micah.
10:53:12 <Betty> haha
10:54:02 <Dave from B™> Alright, see ya guys later
10:54:04 <Ryan (work)> BH grumble
10:54:31 <Katie> Dave, take a computer to the freezer with you. :)
10:55:22 <ynpvisitor53> He hs the app
10:55:50 <ynpvisitor53> Good way to test his battery
10:56:23 <Dave from B™> I have an one I just replaced. We could run a test
10:56:34 <ynpvisitor53> Looks like we may get pump reports
10:56:46 <Micah> 53 lol no
10:57:49 <Ryan (work)> meeting time, bbl
10:57:53 <Eric> pump has had some big eruptions!
10:58:08 <Joe1> aurum video https://youtu.be/WUou630Vcho
11:04:07 <ynpvisitor53> Well, enjoy the
11:04:11 <ynpvisitor53> Micah cam
11:09:46 <Eric> I bet we have 3-5h until BH
11:11:00 <Eric> Apparently Kevin woke up from nap just in time for OF :-P
11:11:28 <Eric> Crowd out for OF...must be newbs :-D
11:12:34 <Eric> OF
11:16:36 <Katie> Waving at the cam, too. :)
11:17:47 <Lori S> Katie, Static or this one?
11:17:52 <Eric> Castle is due
11:17:54 <Lori S> on delay...
11:18:17 <Katie> Static, Lori
11:18:41 <Lori S> Missed it. I told Bob to wave. :p
11:19:04 <Chancellor> might be winter employees arriving
11:19:25 <Lori S> Guide resourcce training today and tomorrow at the VC
11:19:38 <Lori S> ...all but Xanterra I think
11:19:51 <Chancellor> makes sense
11:20:28 <Micah> Bubbler guys.
11:21:15 <Dave from B™> haha
11:22:37 <Betty> you call it ini?
11:23:57 <Micah> No point. Unless the VC is occupied. Didn't see anyone in there today.
11:29:55 <Eric> Never seen BSB ini before on GT
11:30:30 <Eric> Looks to be going strong from here though
11:30:49 <Eric> I assume Micah will yell Castle if it goes
11:32:02 <Eric> Can we zoom on BSB?
11:32:14 <Eric> ohh, maybe looking for daisy?
11:32:40 <Eric> I think we have about 45m to daisy
11:33:40 <Eric> Grotto ie
11:40:52 <Eric> Nice splashing
11:42:48 <Micah> 10-12 minute ints.
11:42:55 <Micah> It's strong
11:43:33 <Micah> Preceeded by west Bubbler by less than 2 minutes. This summer this would have had me running for the hill
11:44:33 <Dave from B™> Micah, how is the bw around BH?
11:45:08 <Eric> Yep, strong BSB is a good sign
11:45:26 <Eric> I think we had decent BSB for a couple hours before eruption yesterday
11:46:07 <Eric> I see you typing :-P
11:48:01 <Micah> Boardwalk isn't bad.
11:48:09 <Micah> Not pure ice yet.
11:52:02 <Kitt> when bubbler gets to under 10 minutes it will be even better
11:52:15 <Kitt> also if bubbler lasts longer than 3 minutes
11:53:24 <Kitt> hope indy starts sooner than later for you
11:54:22 <Kitt (away)> lunchtime
11:55:11 <Lori S> Lunch for me too. 2 sacrifieces for the rest of you.
11:56:36 <Kitt (away)> hm, maybe I will eat lunch in front of comuter
11:56:46 <Kitt (away)> bubbler lasting longer than 3 minutes
11:57:32 <Kitt (away)> and it quit
11:58:08 <Kitt> ok, chef salad in front of the computer it is
11:58:42 <Micah> 4m23s kitt
11:59:04 <Micah> Sorry, 43s not 23
12:00:05 <Micah> Bee very happy
12:00:57 <Kitt> is it doing the standing water in indy or no water visable?
12:01:47 <Micah> I didn't see any water when I looked but then again my face hurt so I could only glance
12:01:57 <Micah> H20 in west bubbler
12:02:06 <Kitt> stay warm Micah
12:02:43 <Micah> I am,everwhere but my face
12:02:57 <Ryan (desk)> Grotto 1202ie
12:03:06 <Dave from B™> You need a balaclava?
12:03:10 <Kitt> you need a face gator
12:03:33 <Eric> Yep, baclava and some goggles would help your face a ton
12:03:34 <Kitt> or at least a scarf
12:03:34 <Micah> I got one but I got it all sweaty and useless
12:03:59 <Micah> West about to start.
12:04:05 <Eric> I use a thin neck buff on mountains Micah, just cutting the wind a tiny bit makes a huge difference
12:04:06 <Dave from B™> That can happen. Hopefully, BH will erupt so you can go inside to get dry and warm
12:04:26 <Kitt> let it freeze dry, shake of the ice, then you can wear it again
12:04:30 <Eric> you can move the neck buff up and over your face easily to adjust venting
12:04:44 <Eric> works summer and winter :-D
12:05:13 <Eric> BSB trying
12:05:55 <Kitt> most of the eruptions I saw in November, I watched from the overlook
12:06:19 <Eric> water
12:06:23 <Eric> BSB
12:06:31 <Kitt> that way wind was at my back except for one eruption that did a 180 and came over to water me
12:06:55 <Kitt> that is a 14 minute interval
12:08:03 <Micah> That was a longer interval. 13m38s
12:09:10 <Ryan (desk)> Looks weak
12:09:19 <Eric> strong wind
12:09:20 <Micah> Longer lead time on west Bubbler too
12:09:39 <Micah> Still fairly strong.
12:09:58 <Ryan (desk)> Yesterday's bubblers looked like a small BHI
12:10:01 <Eric> done
12:10:16 <Eric> 3.5 m bubbler
12:10:50 <Micah> 3m54s
12:10:56 <Micah> Just missed 4m
12:10:56 <Eric> so shortened duration, longer interval
12:11:27 <Micah> Or vice versa
12:11:30 <Eric> Let me know when we have waves on BSB :-P
12:11:37 <Eric> restart?
12:11:47 <Eric> video is ugly here
12:11:50 <Micah> No restart.
12:12:09 <Kitt> nope, just steam vent
12:12:18 <Micah> We'll see what the next one is.
12:12:19 <Eric> snow is causing lots of video artifacting
12:12:34 <Micah> That steam vent is wierd
12:12:35 <Eric> hunker down Micah :-D
12:12:57 <Micah> What do you THINK I've been doing? Lol
12:13:54 <Kitt> the nice thing is you can sit on the bench and still see bubbler
12:14:15 <Betty> oh, snow
12:14:21 <Betty> hi Kitt
12:14:31 <Kitt> hi Betty
12:15:24 <Dave from B™> Phone issues. I shall return
12:15:24 <Kitt> we lost Castle?
12:15:59 <Betty> where is your red coat and white beard, Micah?
12:16:07 <Eric> Probably lose grand too with this snow
12:16:46 <Kitt> there it is
12:16:48 <Kitt> ie
12:17:16 <Ryan (desk)> castle 1216ie
12:18:14 <Kitt> wow, Micah that weather looks bad, when cam backed up
12:18:34 <ynpvisitor108> What a great day to take the dogs for a walk.
12:18:51 <ynpvisitor108> Graham did it.
12:19:03 <Micah> Still no bubbler
12:19:20 <Kitt> Graham has Arctic weather gear
12:19:50 <Micah> I'm wearing a - 41
12:20:04 <Kitt> that's good
12:20:24 <Kitt> there's bubbler
12:20:42 <Micah> -40 parka and boots
12:21:16 <Kitt> I love my -40 mittens
12:22:26 <Kitt> we haven't had any major snow in over two weeks, but we still have about 4 - 6 inches on the ground
12:22:32 <Kitt> it won't go away
12:22:50 <Kitt> places they have plowed are finally clear
12:23:07 <Micah> Windchill isn't that bad today. High of 30
12:23:43 <Eric> indy?
12:23:52 <Eric> really hard to see
12:23:59 <Micah> No
12:24:04 <Micah> Big splash
12:24:11 <Eric> thanks
12:24:13 <Kitt> no, that is what it did yesterday to me
12:24:27 <Kitt> thick steam and a patch of snow
12:24:53 <Eric> I just saw boatloads of steam to the right....guess it was the big splash
12:25:11 <Micah> 4m42s
12:25:17 <Micah> On bubbler
12:25:40 <Eric> haha...didn't even know it was ie :-P view is so bad from up here
12:27:41 <Kitt> castle still ie
12:27:59 <Kitt> major
12:31:21 <Kitt> bubbler
12:32:16 <Ryan (desk)> fyi I put the 1220 bubbler in since Micah didnt
12:33:44 <Kitt> he's probably trying to save his phone
12:34:04 <Kitt> the cold weather runs the battery down pretty quickly
12:34:22 <Kitt> that snow is impressive
12:34:24 <Micah> I'm still here I just called my dad
12:34:36 <Kitt> can barely see the cone
12:35:35 <Micah> Yeah it's accumulating on me. But dammit I'm not walking away now.
12:35:50 <Micah> I'm still warm anyways
12:35:52 <Ryan (desk)> Hope says your a bad***
12:36:59 <Micah> Haha
12:38:06 <Micah> No wind now really. But snowy as heck.
12:38:33 <Micah> Very thankful for my rite in the rain notebook.

12:39:15 <Eric> looks like bubbler
12:39:27 <Micah> No Bubbler yet
12:39:36 <Kitt> that is why I said this angle is tricky
12:39:39 <Eric> damn OF window!
12:39:45 <Micah> Sun trying to peei between clouds
12:39:58 <Micah> Peek*
12:40:01 <Micah> Lol.

12:40:11 <Eric> yep
12:40:33 <Eric> Peeps for the OF show
12:40:49 <Kitt> will you be able to see Grand from there Micah?
12:41:40 <Micah> Bubbler
12:42:04 <Micah> Less than a minute west to south. Strong south
12:42:26 <Kitt> person walked out to wait for fluffy
12:42:44 <Micah> No on grand
12:43:24 <Kitt> you mean you can't see the area or it isn't erupting?
12:44:12 <Micah> First

12:47:18 <Micah> Um. I think Borah peak just erupted behind my back
12:47:35 <Kitt> how dare it
12:47:55 <Micah> It's channel was covered with a big snow accumulation. Now it's melted and gurgling.
12:49:12 <Micah> Little gap in storm here

12:56:41 <Micah> Maybe not.
12:57:19 <Eric> We are back on BH
12:57:26 <Eric> looks like BSB
12:57:57 <Micah> Bubbler going nuts. We're close
12:58:37 <Micah> Wind shift again. Going dark
12:58:47 <Ryan (desk)> place your non indy bets?

13:02:01 <Kitt> yay
13:02:07 <ynpvisitor68> why did Micah go that way?
13:02:11 <Kitt> yay Micah
13:02:22 <Kitt> Go Beehive
13:02:24 <Rice> Should have zoomed out to see if he fell
13:02:27 <Kitt> yes
13:02:46 <ynpvisitor68> oh he is on the right side, good
13:02:46 <Eric> wowzers...that was fast
13:02:54 <Chancellor> :bee:
13:02:56 <What Do You Zin> Short Indy
13:03:08 <Kitt> hopefully it stays that direction
13:03:11 <Dave from B™> That was a short fuse
13:03:12 <ynpvisitor117> Yay go bee
13:03:34 <Eric> BTW, I bet indy first :-P
13:04:09 <Betty> what?
13:04:16 <LindaG> Ah an observer, do we know them?

13:05:47 <Ryan (desk)> Wow this prediction wasnt far off
13:05:51 <Eric> Not a bad sit, depression, Aurum and BH
13:06:01 <LindaG> Good formhim
13:06:16 <LindaG> *for him
13:06:27 <Kitt> the snow even let up some
13:06:38 <Eric> Yes, much better viewing than 10 minutes ago
13:07:06 <Kitt> I bet that made his day
13:07:38 <ynpvisitor68> I thought he has the day off...no Grand for him next?
13:07:52 <Eric> I bet grand is ie
13:08:26 <Eric> grand ie
13:08:32 <Kitt> Grand ie
13:08:56 <Eric> Good bet I guess
13:09:14 <What Do You Zin> Yes, it's there
13:09:19 <Kitt> at least we didn't lose Grand
13:09:38 <Eric> Yep...always good to have the data point and maybe a nice second!
13:09:46 <ynpvisitor68> maybe in time for a second??
13:09:53 <ynpvisitor68> back up a bit perhaps
13:09:55 <Eric> Grotto has been chugging all morning, hasn't it
13:10:17 <Kitt> hm done or a 2nd coming up
13:10:40 <Eric> I think it's done
13:10:52 <ynpvisitor68> glad it was seen
13:10:59 <Eric> yep
13:11:03 <Kitt> so Grand and Beehive went together
13:11:10 <Eric> Hey Micah, run down and check Giant for us :-P
13:11:51 <Eric> Alright...lunch time. BBL
13:12:30 <Kitt> have a good day
13:12:35 <Kitt> stay warm Micah
13:13:39 <Betty> bulger
13:17:33 <Ryan (desk)> Hmmm, a GT bug
13:18:03 <Ryan (desk)> Bulger definitely stopped by 1313 and then was back on two minutes later. Cant put it in as two eruptions
13:20:10 <Dave from B™> It looks like my phone issue has FINALLY been resolved. I went down from 5 lines to 4 in August and they forgot to take the disconnected number out of our rollover sequence.
13:20:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds fishy to me.
13:21:44 <Ryan (desk)> got a work around
13:22:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Heinrich Christmas song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xj-jGAJgZY
13:28:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow! A miracle happened! My Phoenix package made it to Vegas!
13:39:47 <Micah - Drying.> Nice Beehive. I realized at the last second that the steam was going directly in my face and dove towards the benches.
13:40:02 <Dave from B™> Kevin, the bad nes is that you now have 2 packages instead of 1
13:40:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds like a good morning on the Hill Micah.
13:41:09 <Kevin L™🌵> it did make it to town Dave. We have to see what they do with it now.
13:41:49 <Joe> l be a replay of BHI and Beehive in ~5 min :)
13:42:11 <Dave from B™> Joe, Micah might need to see that since he had to take cover
13:42:43 <Joe> Yep I have him in there :)
13:43:37 <Joe> Kevin did some fine camera work
13:44:50 <Dave from B™> So, blow the part where he is hiding and we can post on FB that he is afraid of geysers:D
13:45:09 <Joe> :)
13:45:21 <Micah - Drying.> Kevin L yes it was.
13:45:59 <Joe1> BHI-Beehive, Starring our favorite tour guide--Micah https://youtu.be/qEMmWTx-cro
13:48:58 <Katie> Thanks, Joe. I was out to lunch and missed it. Watching now. Just saw Micah's sprint
13:49:08 <Ryan (desk)> 1:22, enjoy micah's hands flying as he almost bites it.
13:49:21 <Ryan (desk)> extraordinary
13:49:46 <Joe> sorry for my mispelling of Staring&
13:50:17 <Katie> ooooop ooooop safe!
13:50:51 <Katie> (went back to see arms flailing for balance - I WAS impressed on first watching that he could move that fast on snow/ice)
13:51:47 <Dave from B™> I've never seen Micah move that fast before:)
13:52:09 <Joe> /
13:56:32 <Ryan (desk)> later everyone. have a good evening
13:58:57 <Dave from B™> goodnight Ryan
13:59:23 <Betty> bye Ryan
13:59:33 <Kevin L™🌵> bye
13:59:46 <Kat> Nive Bee Joe - Micah must have been cold - great moves!
13:59:53 <Micah - Drying.> My warmth flashed before my eyesv.
14:00:21 <Micah - Drying.> I was actually running in place for about 2 Seconds kicking up snow like a snowmobile before I took off.
14:00:26 <Kat> LOL
14:01:09 <Dave from B™> haha
14:01:11 <Kat> Looked like fun to me Micah - Drying!

14:24:32 <Eric> Joe got start....just didn't say anything.
14:24:45 <Eric> :-P
14:24:46 <JarnoO> drat, missed the start
14:25:02 <JarnoO> afternoon all
14:25:07 <Eric> Hi Jarno
14:26:01 <Joe> Chat is not working for me sometimes
14:26:39 <Eric> weird
14:27:14 <JarnoO> looks like an ini
14:27:27 <Eric> Yep
14:27:47 <Joe> Probably my isp, so I did GT from my phone
14:35:56 <Eric> OF ie
14:37:19 <What Do You Zin> Saw Twitter Webcam capture of a lot of snow in state of Washington passes
14:40:16 <Eric> Yep, fingers crossed!
14:40:31 <Eric> I will be hitting the mountain on Saturday with lots of fresh snow!
14:41:30 <Eric> Looking pretty snowy up on rainier - https://www.nps.gov/customcf/webcam/dsp_webcam_image.cfm?id=81B463D4-1DD8-B71B-0BB1FE8364315734
14:43:01 <Eric> Timberline on hood is starting to look like winter: https://www.timberlinelodge.com/snowcameras/lodge.jpg?nocache=1576186956
14:44:10 <What Do You Zin> "Pretty snowy" on Rainier is like over a meter, right?
14:45:26 <Kevin L™🌵> 😎
14:47:05 <Eric> Well, some places on the mountain are hundreds of feet deep :-P
14:47:28 <Eric> or whatever the depth of the glaciers are
14:48:05 <Eric> Looks like the snow at Paradise Lodge is about a meter
14:48:20 <Eric> Higher up, probably deeper
14:53:10 <What Do You Zin> Firn God's sake, Eric, I know the difference between snow and a glacier. After all, I'm an oceanographer. >(
14:53:37 <What Do You Zin> Just wanted to comment on the ungodly amount of snow Rainier gets.
14:54:47 <Eric> I was joking with you, hence the tongue out emoticon.
14:57:09 <What Do You Zin> Old snow is hard snow.
14:58:28 <Eric> Hard snow is good snow for a climber!
15:00:53 <Dave from B™> Deosn't matter if it is hard or soft; it still causes cancer
15:01:21 <Eric> and in real science...sitting at home doing nothing causes cancer!
15:01:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Not as fast as snow
15:01:54 <Eric> Snow causes fun and outdoor activity! :-)
15:03:00 <Eric> But do make sure when you mix sun and snow, use plenty of sunscreen as that will cause cancer too!
15:03:05 <Dave from B™> Who's doing nothing?
15:03:59 <Eric> Not sure...probably lots of people at the moment.
15:04:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Anything in the state of california causes cancer.
15:06:33 <Betty> time to do nothing. night all
15:06:51 <Eric> Night Betty
15:07:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Good knight
15:10:35 <JarnoO> night Betty
15:38:58 <Kat> Lion ie
15:39:44 <JarnoO> wow. The weather cleared up fast. Even some sunshine!
15:40:02 <Kat> Amazing
15:43:09 <Eric> West cam looks clear
15:43:29 <Eric> Nice afternoon for a ski into the park :-D
15:48:13 <Dave from B™> Time to go sweat before heading home. Have a great evening everyone!
15:48:33 <Lori S> Night Dave from B™
15:50:51 <JarnoO> night Davew
15:50:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Good knight
15:50:54 <JarnoO> Dave*
15:53:18 <Kat> Have we seen Daisy today?
15:53:46 <Kevin L™🌵> No. Been fishing for it a bit.
15:54:10 <Kat> Was thinking that :)
15:55:08 <Kevin L™🌵> It doesn't like my bait
15:55:23 <Kat> Better change it LOL
15:55:34 <Kat> Won't like mine either...
15:56:02 <Eric> Got a bit for daisy...so probably 17:15 - 17:45 range
15:56:38 <Kat> Thanks Eric
15:58:08 <Eric> I could probably add a prediction when GT/NPS doesn't have one for Daisy...since it's pretty consistent, not to bad to predict after multiple intervals.
15:58:09 <JarnoO> I'm off, enjoy Lion
15:58:20 <Eric> Night Jarno
15:58:29 <Kat> Nite Jarno
15:58:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Good knight
16:00:43 <Kat> Nite Kevin!
16:02:31 <Lori S> Night JarnoO
16:05:32 <ynpvisitor63> OF NS
16:08:18 <Eric> Washburn statics opened up too!
16:08:58 <Eric> Lake is still getting blasted!
16:09:00 <Kat> Nice
16:09:01 <Lori S> Purty there to the NE
16:09:18 <Eric> You are getting some nice sunshine Lori
16:09:29 <Lori S> Yes. Yes we are.
16:09:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum
16:09:56 <Kevin L™🌵> .
16:09:57 <Kevin L™🌵> .
16:09:58 <Kevin L™🌵> .
16:09:59 <Kat> Clouds to your west Lori?
16:10:02 <Eric> nice!
16:10:07 <Eric> that was quick
16:10:16 <Eric> 5h25m
16:10:31 <Eric> I see they started grooming the roads too
16:10:38 <Lori S> Kat, I'll go look
16:11:02 <Eric> Just look onwest entrance cam Kat
16:11:07 <Kat> That was fast!
16:11:50 <Kat> I didn't mean for her to go and look - :)
16:12:16 <Eric> She probably wanted to get outside anyway.
16:13:01 <Lori S> Clouds low on horizon to south and west. Clear sky all over
16:13:29 <Lori S> Chilly but then I went out with no coat :)
16:14:29 <Kat> Silly- didn't mean for you to go out! LOL
16:16:08 <Lori S> It's nice out :)
16:17:04 <Lori S> Whoa. Uline is quick. Just ordered on Monday.
16:17:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably didn't go through Phoenix.
16:19:30 <Lori S> Kat, went outside again to put the order in our supply closet. :)
16:21:19 <Lori S> And now to the dumpster. Wearing my coat this time. :)
16:23:52 <Kat> sounds smart- coats are good!
16:26:06 <Kat> Kevin L™🌵, Did your package ever arrive?
16:29:08 <Lori S> And now to the post office before it gets dark.
16:29:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Not yet
16:29:38 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, missing?
16:38:59 <Kevin L™🌵> In transit.
16:39:33 <Kat> That sounds promising!
16:40:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Supposed to be here tomorrow
16:43:23 <ynpvisitor9> nice evening after the blustery day
16:43:25 <Kat> Great! Hope it arrives safely.
16:44:07 <Kat> Yellow buses headed out west!
16:49:06 <Eric> They were using buses in that snow?
16:49:20 <Eric> snow cat buses?
16:49:22 <Eric> big tires
16:49:51 <Eric> Washburn NE beautiful!
16:49:56 <Kat> Big tires yes
16:50:08 <Eric> Thanks
16:50:12 <Eric> Lake finally cleared too
16:50:18 <Kat> Lake is pretty too!
16:50:23 <Eric> :-D
16:51:26 <Kat> Love the frosted trees!
16:52:25 <Eric> Yep, amazing those trees survive up on washburn
16:52:29 <Eric> and other mountains
16:53:09 <ynpvisitor9> Most of the West Yellowstone operators use those big tires now. Less and less tracks on vans anymore.
16:54:51 <Kat> Didn't know that...
16:55:38 <ynpvisitor9> you climb a small ladder of steps to get into those things, they are high off the ground.
16:56:14 <ynpvisitor9> Electric peak is nice now
16:56:25 <Eric> Makes sense...way cheaper to maintain tires then complex tracks
16:56:51 <Kat> Sun going down down!
16:56:57 <ynpvisitor9> Tracks are awful if it turns to pavement
16:57:00 <Eric> I want to get a set of those tires for my Mazda CX-5 :-P
16:57:08 <ynpvisitor9> Tires do much better
16:57:20 <Kat> I've been on the snow coaches out to Hayden and Fishing Bridge
16:57:53 <Kat> They probably all suck up a lot of gas!
16:58:05 <Eric> Guess I would probably need to jack up my car about 4ft to make it happen though :-P
16:58:14 <Kat> :lol:
16:58:20 <Eric> Interesting how hot that section of the parking lot is
16:58:52 <ynpvisitor38> What a pretty scene!
16:58:57 <Kat> Bison hang there sometimes
16:59:18 <LindaG> Kat, hi
16:59:22 <ynpvisitor9> probably should not be a parking lot there
16:59:22 <LindaG> Hi all
16:59:36 <Kat> Hi Linda
16:59:52 <LindaG> Lion roar
17:00:04 <Kat> It's due...
17:00:31 <ynpvisitor9> Be a nice way to end the day
17:00:43 <ynpvisitor9> sky line is nice too
17:01:53 <Kat> R -side?
17:02:12 <ynpvisitor9> yes
17:02:31 <Eric> wow...washburn is just getting prettier
17:02:37 <Kat> Thought so - lots of steam!
17:02:41 <LindaG> Nice sky
17:04:09 <LindaG> This view is nice when parking lot is covered in snow
17:04:40 <LindaG> Artemisia ie
17:05:25 <Kat> :)
17:06:40 <Kat> Lion wants to play! hahaha
17:07:11 <LindaG> 😊
17:08:56 <Kat> Maybe we will get a Daisy soon...
17:09:17 <ynpvisitor9> LindaG I agree, nicer view without the pavement and/or vehicles all over
17:09:44 <LindaG> ynpvisitor9, yeah its nice
17:09:55 <Eric> Yes, getting into the Daisy window again in about 6 minutes
17:09:56 <Kat> Plume over the hill from Midway
17:09:57 <ynpvisitor9> Lion would be better viewing
17:10:13 <Kat> It would
17:10:18 <ynpvisitor9> Excelsior as it cools down
17:10:39 <ynpvisitor60> riverside
17:10:41 <ynpvisitor9> Imagine the plume if it erupted
17:10:42 <Kat> Probably
17:10:54 <ynpvisitor9> Riverside was 1701ns
17:11:08 <ynpvisitor60> Too much typing
17:13:11 <Kevin L™🌵> The M577 track vehicle I drove got about a 8 gallons to the mile.
17:13:25 <ynpvisitor60> Kevin should be out innertubing down from Depression. He could get out of the river at F&M
17:13:40 <Kat> LOL
17:16:00 <Kat> Kevin L™🌵, Better than some RV's!
17:16:24 <ynpvisitor9> rafting might be nice, yet not an inner tube.
17:16:47 <ynpvisitor60> Well, time to put a log on the fire.
17:18:37 <Kat> Emjoy!
17:18:46 <Kat> Enjoy*
17:21:34 <Kat> wb Lori
17:21:56 <Lori S> Guess I was gone too long. It quit me
17:22:42 <Lori S> Decide to plow the lot behind our house while I was over there dropping off boxes.
17:22:48 <Lori S> *decided
17:23:51 <Kat> Sounds like fun!
17:24:57 <Lori S> Kinda is. More power!
17:25:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Did I ever mention how much I like living in the desert?
17:26:02 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, :p
17:26:20 <Eric> The lights on the parking lot are pretty
17:27:06 <Lori S> Looks Christmas-y
17:28:53 <Kat> Kevin L™🌵, Don't think I ever heard you say that! LOL
17:31:01 <LindaG> hello lori hello
17:31:12 <LindaG> And everyone else
17:31:28 <Eric> Even the Inn lights turned on tonight!
17:31:52 <Eric> I always like the lights in the trees at Lake too
17:32:28 <Eric> checkout the moon on the washburn NE
17:32:40 <Eric> at least I assume that is what we are seeing
17:33:07 <LindaG> Full moon out tonight
17:33:08 <Kat> Wow on the moon!
17:33:23 <Kat> It is -
17:33:23 <Lori S> Hello Linda Hello
17:33:55 <Kat> OF
17:34:09 <Eric> rocket start
17:34:17 <LindaG> Should be good moonlight geyser gazing
17:34:35 <Eric> Yep
17:34:48 <Kat> Nice and cold hehe
17:37:10 <LindaG> Weird steam on OF
17:37:40 <LindaG> I GUESS THATS A CLOUD
17:38:38 <Lori S> Look at moon on Washburn NE now
17:39:04 <Kat> I bet it's beautiful in Lamar!
17:39:10 <LindaG> Wow
17:39:12 <Lori S> Kat, :thumbsup:
17:39:31 <LindaG> Kat, for sure
17:39:36 <Kat> Give my right arm to be there! (not really)
17:40:14 <Kat> Leaving the cam here for now ... see you all in the AM!
17:40:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Good knight
17:40:59 <Kat> Nite all!
17:42:11 <Lori S> Night
17:43:01 <Lori S> When drinking milk, it is disconcerting to have a lump pass onto your tongue. :O
17:45:22 <LindaG> Kat, night
18:29:28 <LindaG> Ah nice view
18:29:39 <LindaG> Go geysers
19:41:48 <Michael> I could believe Oblong is saying hello.
19:43:31 <Michael> More likely I was just trying to imagine some excitement.
20:14:09 <Michael> Daisy ie
20:14:24 <Michael> says the person who wasn't watching and missed Grand and OF...
