05:02:03 <ynpvisitor66> no sign of bee?
05:02:53 <Joe> Not yet, may be anytime soon
05:03:48 <ynpvisitor66> wow, is all that steam from Castle
05:04:10 <Joe> yes
05:04:36 <ynpvisitor66> oh, just noticed it was ie at 0418
05:05:57 <ynpvisitor66> so is that scissor area on right edge of screen?
05:08:08 <Joe> Bee area above the tree in the dark spot
05:08:40 <Joe> P)ump strait above that
05:08:57 <ynpvisitor66> oh, thought that was scissors area
05:09:08 <Joe> straight *
05:09:55 <ynpvisitor66> oh, ok thanks
05:09:55 <ynpvisitor102> wow nice light
05:10:05 <ynpvisitor102> Lion
05:10:26 <ynpvisitor66> Lion
05:10:45 <Joe> Yes
05:11:19 <Joe> have had b
05:12:03 <ynpvisitor66> when?
05:12:16 <Joe> have had Bee inthe view 99% of the time so still waiting
05:12:29 <ynpvisitor66> oh, ok
05:12:56 <Joe> hit enter too soon :)
05:13:23 <ynpvisitor66> that is ok, I am typing in the dark, so often do that
05:49:57 <ynpvisitor54> I don't understand why the OF Lodge lights are being left on all night
05:50:08 <ynpvisitor54> that facility isn
05:50:19 <ynpvisitor54> isn't even open during the day
05:50:59 <ynpvisitor54> so trying to be green, all of the lights should be turned off
05:52:16 <Joe> They try to make you be green while in the park but they do not do the same
05:52:24 <ynpvisitor54> plus it is a major source of light pollution when trying to enjoy the night skies
05:52:53 <Joe> Co as I tell you to do, not as you see me do :)
05:53:10 <Joe> Co= Do
05:53:19 <ynpvisitor54> and Friday night into Saturday pre dawn is the Quadrantid meteor shower
05:56:27 <ynpvisitor54> preplay
05:57:05 <Joe> Yep, very close
06:05:05 <ynpvisitor54> hm, maybe that wasn't preplay
06:05:18 <ynpvisitor54> seems quiet since then
06:09:20 <ynpvisitor54> Old Faithful
06:09:29 <Joe> there it is
06:10:01 <ynpvisitor54> was going to request wind change, then realized there was a column of water already
06:34:06 <ynpvisitor99> Lion?
06:35:01 <ynpvisitor99> gone
06:35:01 <Joe> just a roar
06:35:46 <ynpvisitor99> ok
07:05:42 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
07:06:24 <JarnoO> morning all
07:13:25 <Ryan (desk)> BSB
07:13:36 <Ryan (desk)> 0713ie
07:14:34 <Ryan (desk)> It *was* ie
07:14:40 <Ryan (desk)> Check the cature.
07:16:54 <Joe> yes it was there
07:23:22 <Dave from B™> We have a BH watcher
07:45:05 <JarnoO> fluffy
07:46:58 <ynpvisitor15> nice static shot
07:48:55 <ynpvisitor15> was that a short?
07:49:10 <ynpvisitor15> no, looking at wrong time
08:03:06 <Titanium Dream>
08:06:36 <JarnoO> hm, stream isn't enjoying the weather it seems
08:09:00 <JarnoO> morning Jimbo, Chancellor and Micah
08:09:08 <JarnoO> as well as Mike
08:09:13 <Micah (Dorm)> Good Morning JarnoO
08:09:57 <Chancellor> good morning
08:10:48 <Micah (Dorm)> Really interesting how shorts have all but disappeared.
08:11:48 <Ryan (meeting)> ....go do laundry then?
08:12:19 <Micah (Dorm)> Nice.
08:12:26 <Titanium Dream> Ha
08:12:26 <Dave from B™> Who wears shorts in this kind of weather?
08:12:35 <Micah (Dorm)> More like brew coffee and shower. Today's dorm and chore day.
08:12:38 <Titanium Dream> morning JarnoO
08:12:44 <Ryan (desk)> I stopped questioning him a long time ago.
08:13:00 <Micah (Dorm)> Yeah, because you know I'm always right.
08:13:53 <Titanium Dream> But you don't know where your shorts are. :D
08:13:55 <Dave from B™> Micah, is this your first time to YNP in winter?
08:14:28 <Micah (Dorm)> Dave from B that is correct
08:15:07 <Dave from B™> So, what do you think? Isn't it a totally different experience?
08:15:28 <Micah (Dorm)> Definitely requires some adjusting.
08:15:34 <Ryan (desk)> I heed to everything micah says except waterfall classifications, Fountain stalls, waterfall heights, sinter classifications, and Yahtzee.
08:16:05 <Dave from B™> haha Ryan...I laugh at the last item
08:16:15 <Micah (Dorm)> All the employee bikes have transformed into Skis. There are paths where you would never think there would be. Different Wildlife, and more comradeship.
08:16:34 <Micah (Dorm)> You get Triple Yahtzee ONE time....
08:16:56 <Ryan (desk)> Not my fault the trees are easily disturbed.
08:17:01 <Micah (Dorm)> Also I'm warming up to your waterfall system.
08:17:13 <Micah (Dorm)> And I thought we agreed on Sinter classification?
08:17:13 <Dave from B™> Is he accusing you of rolling 1 too many times?
08:17:32 <Ryan (desk)> Cave classes 4 lyfe
08:17:50 <Ryan (desk)> No, I'm just good at Yahtzee ;)
08:18:09 <Micah (Dorm)> Oh. THAT.
08:18:15 <Micah (Dorm)> You and your underground bias
08:18:41 <Micah (Dorm)> Stop trying to make flowstone and rimstone happen, it's not going to happen.
08:18:55 <Ryan (desk)> It already did happen.
08:19:02 <Micah (Dorm)> In caves yeah.
08:19:05 <Micah (Dorm)> Where it belongs.
08:19:15 <Micah (Dorm)> At Mammoth hot springs sure.
08:19:25 <Micah (Dorm)> Where the deposits are the same.
08:19:27 <Ryan (desk)> Not my fault sinter is crap at redeposition.
08:19:57 <Ryan (desk)> See everyone, this is what happenes with the Sputs behind closed doors. We talk, things get heated, Yahtzee dice get thrown. Good times.
08:20:13 <Micah (Dorm)> Not my fault that Travertine and Cave deposits are crap at staying intact long enough to make a mark in the rock record....
08:20:36 <Ryan (desk)> Just travertine.
08:20:52 <Micah (Dorm)> It's all CaCO2.
08:20:57 <Micah (Dorm)> SiO2 is superior.
08:21:16 <Ryan (desk)> The 100% humidity underground keeps calcite intact for a really long time even after deposition stopped.
08:22:16 <Ryan (desk)> Dont hate on CaCO3 (THREE btw), its just depositing in the wrong place. A fish will always feel like an idiot if its judged on its ability to walk.
08:22:22 <Titanium Dream> If it's CaCO2, write the paper and be acclaimed by science.
08:22:35 <Micah (Dorm)> Dammit, I get that wrong every time.
08:23:12 <Titanium Dream> I've got my ion you
08:24:24 <Dave from B™> haha Jimbo
08:24:56 <Titanium Dream> I'm here all week.
08:25:03 <Titanium Dream> Fortunately the week is almost over.
08:25:14 <Micah (Dorm)> I'll cheers to that.
08:25:21 <Micah (Dorm)> I forgot what 8 hours of sleep felt like.
08:26:41 <Ryan (desk)> These two weeks of Wednesday off were crap
08:28:58 <Dave from B™> Next year, they will fall on Friday
08:29:22 <Ryan (desk)> I know.
08:29:36 <Ryan (desk)> I am going lava tubing and lava hunting on the Big Island next Christmas/New Years
08:30:14 <Dave from B™> That will be fun
08:31:31 <Ryan (desk)> It will be if Kilauea decides to get its act together and start erupting again
08:31:50 <Dave from B™> That doesn't seem likely
08:31:52 <Micah (Dorm)> It's a Volcano. It does what it wants ;)
08:32:03 <Ryan (desk)> At least the ocean entry fronts are still active, I think.
08:32:03 <Dave from B™> Although, you could swimming in the new lake:)
08:32:34 <Ryan (desk)> My threshold is SB. I want either lava fountains over 400ft or sunrise at a lava entry.
08:32:37 <Ryan (desk)> To much to ask?
08:39:18 <JarnoO> Ryan, how about Mauna Loa rather than Kilauea?
08:40:07 <Ryan (desk)> I dont care I just want vertically moving lava
08:41:25 <Titanium Dream> Go lava surfing:
08:43:50 <Ryan (desk)> bsb?
08:47:16 <Dave from B™> The webcam started failing about the time Micah arrived in OF.....hmmmm:)
09:01:38 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 0901
09:01:48 <Ryan (desk)> ie
09:01:52 <Ryan (desk)> or ne i guess
09:01:56 <Ryan (desk)> off to luch
09:46:56 <LindaG> good morning all

10:15:24 <Joe> Eric
10:16:06 <Eric> NPS updated their prediction API url...I have fixed it for GT, waiting on one of the other team members to review my code and then update the server.

11:10:15 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
11:15:47 <LindaG> zzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:16:37 <Dave from B™> Did someone say they needed some predictions?
11:17:11 <Dave from B™> Prediction #1....Eric will climb Mt St Helen's at least 5 times in 2020
11:18:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave will break something at work at least 10 times.
11:19:55 <LindaG> I will master the art of typing...
11:20:02 <LindaG> uh...nope
11:20:06 <Dave from B™> Our family will have fewer flat tires in 2020 compared to the 4 in 2019
11:20:39 <LindaG> giantess will.erupt
11:21:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I will have at least 3 packages take up residence in Phoenix.
11:21:25 <CraigC> I promise I didn't do it... my neighbor's mailbox is tipped over
11:21:28 <LindaG> And Craig will take out at least.2 more mailboxes
11:21:38 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
11:21:45 <Dave from B™> :D :D at CraigC
11:21:57 <CraigC> I've been laughing all morning about it
11:22:19 <Kevin L™🌵> It was weakened by your hit.
11:22:27 <ynpvisitor55> .
11:22:37 <Dave from B™> Just when CraigC thinks it safe at SB, someone, not only sits in his chair, but helps himself to his snacks as well
11:22:39 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
11:23:59 <LindaG> lion wants to do it
11:24:25 <Titanium Dream> Good luck on the Giantess prediction, LindaG
11:24:54 <LindaG> Titanium Dream, ☺
11:25:33 <Dave from B™> 3 geysers, which have been sleeping for over a year, will awaken this year for at least one eruption
11:27:40 <Dave from B™> My picks: F&M, Giant and ?
11:28:27 <Ryan (desk)> F&M, Giantess, and Sawmill
11:29:35 <LindaG> nothing has erupted since I got on. and then they will all go at once.
11:30:51 <Eric> love this view
11:30:58 <Eric> totally underviewed
11:31:50 <Dave from B™> Maybe Micah could wave from his room:)
11:33:16 <Eric> This weekend is going to bring a boatload of snow to our mountains....cannot wait!
11:34:40 <Cooper> i see the SB logger is still broken
11:34:43 <Cooper> grr
11:34:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Please keep it up there
11:35:00 <Eric> no promises kevin
11:35:08 <Eric> We are sharing kinda people
11:35:21 <Ryan (desk)> Where are we looking
11:35:31 <LindaG> sounds nice eric
11:36:12 <Ryan (desk)> Wow. Never recognized that view zoomed in like that
11:36:17 <Eric> wherever the camop points Ryan
11:36:33 <Eric> ohh, I missed the zoom
11:36:35 <ynpvisitor75> you mean Ear and Pendant?
11:37:00 <Ryan (desk)> Yes, 75. I dont reecognize shades of gray from the top of the inn that well yet.
11:37:03 <LindaG> thats where i was
11:38:45 <LindaG> an eruption
11:38:51 <LindaG> bulger
11:40:38 <ynpvisitor75> turban, maybe
11:41:09 <ynpvisitor75> Bulger major
11:47:59 <LindaG> my screen frozen
11:48:08 <LindaG> there we go
11:48:28 <LindaG> in freeze frame mode
11:48:54 <ynpvisitor117> Mine is cold but eventually moves.
11:49:47 <LindaG> IT ie
11:49:50 <LindaG> OT
11:58:20 <Eric> YVO January Video Update:
11:58:35 <Eric> not much new there, but interesting anyway :-D
11:59:10 <Eric> Mike should wear a hat every month :-P
12:06:19 <LindaG> daisy
12:22:20 <Dave from B™>
12:27:25 <ynpvisitor102> the Webcam Failing notice needs to be changed. I am sure the cam is fine. It is the transmission that is failing, right?
12:27:43 <ynpvisitor102> something like...Feed Going Down...
12:28:12 <Ryan (desk)> The webcam system includes everything from the camera lens to the transmitter.
12:28:18 <ynpvisitor102> or Feed Sucks
12:28:47 <Ryan (desk)> Its basically a big black box with light going in and video signals coming out of the park. If anything in that box fails then its considered the webcam going down.
12:28:53 <ynpvisitor102> I realize that yet I am betting the cam itself is fine
12:29:23 <Ryan (desk)> Maybe its not. Cameras do weird things in the cold.
12:29:49 <ynpvisitor102> this one is heated
12:29:54 <ynpvisitor102> and is fine
12:29:56 <LindaG> I'm not experiencing any.problems
12:29:59 <Ryan (desk)> To be fair, it does say "webcam failing. Not "camera failing"/
12:30:13 <LindaG> Of
12:30:25 <Ryan (desk)> One is all inclusive, and one is a specific component.
12:31:13 <ynpvisitor102> fluff
12:31:32 <ynpvisitor102> East Entrance back open
12:33:26 <Ryan (desk)> On my end it looks like I have a static cam :D
12:33:39 <Ryan (desk)> Refreshinfing every second or so.
12:34:21 <LindaG> Ryan (desk), I had that earlier
12:34:52 <Ryan (desk)> Who decided to put the note "Webcam is TROUBLED" on the dashboard for a sucky stream? That's hysterical!
12:35:26 <LindaG> wonder if we missed grand
12:40:29 <Ryan (desk)> ding?
12:40:39 <Ryan (desk)> BSB
12:40:51 <Ryan (desk)> 1240.
12:41:00 <Ryan (desk)> I thought that was INDY
12:41:02 <Dave from B™> You can thank Eric
12:41:12 <LindaG> I yup
12:41:29 <Dave from B™> C'mon, SB! It is time for #1 for 2020
12:42:18 <Ryan (desk)> only 7.5d, need about ten more hours lol
12:42:58 <LindaG> grand
12:42:59 <LindaG> .
12:43:13 <Dave from B™> First eruption last year was Jan 4....we have to stay ahead of last year's pace!:D
12:43:15 <LindaG> ..
12:43:44 <Ryan (desk)> with gray on gray can we try to see both Grand and BH? Indy could be very soon.
12:47:22 <Dave from B™> Welcome home Chancellor
12:50:18 <LindaG> second?
12:50:40 <Chancellor> yes, nice to be back
12:50:55 <Kevin L™🌵> I think so.
12:50:59 <Chancellor> Staying at Old Faithful for 3 days over Christmas was beautiful
12:51:03 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, me to
12:51:10 <LindaG> Chancellor, hi
13:05:39 <LindaG> bsb
13:14:41 <Cooper> good to see I did not miss Bee yet!
13:15:59 <LindaG> Cooper, hi yup still waiting
13:16:15 <Cooper> LindaG, bonjoir
13:22:49 <LindaG> I think steamers
13:23:11 <ynpvisitor39> With butter and garlic?
13:23:20 <LindaG> yum
13:23:46 <Cooper> yum, 39, you have my chops watering......
13:23:51 <Cooper> and my dogs now too
13:27:42 <ynpvisitor39> They will go good with the bison when it come of the spit.
13:28:52 <Cooper> my dog is straing at me like, "Food, Food, Food, Treat, Treat, Treat, give me your bacon. I love you soooooo much, so can I have a piece of bacon?"
13:29:02 <LindaG> aurum
13:29:03 <LindaG> .
13:29:03 <LindaG> .
13:29:04 <LindaG> .
13:29:08 <Cooper> yippe
13:29:27 <Ryan (desk)> nice delay
13:29:48 <JarnoO> nice surprise
13:30:14 <LindaG> .I was hoping it would go about that timw
13:30:18 <Titanium Dream> Don't slip
13:30:25 <Ryan (desk)> Wow you can see the 3 oclock vent, too
13:30:31 <JarnoO> also nice to see NPS predictions in the predictions tab
13:31:02 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
13:31:45 <Ryan (desk)> Wow theres a huge huge huge difference in castle predictions
13:32:13 <LindaG> Eric fixed it I guess. nps had made some changes
13:34:02 <Ryan (desk)> NPS @ 1745 and GT @ 1858
13:34:09 <Ryan (desk)> Someone has the wrong interval
13:34:19 <Ryan (desk)> I think ours is skewed by the missed eruptions.
13:35:35 <JarnoO> most recent two eruptions of Castle were a minor and major one. Only thing is, is that the minor happened a day before the major and thus likely isn't a minor-major pair
13:36:19 <Ryan (desk)> Yeah I think those are screweing with the GT interval
13:37:13 <JarnoO> there's a major missing inbetween, likely around 8 to 9 hours after the minor so that you get an interval of ~9-10h and ~15-16h
13:37:37 <JarnoO> or 2+ minors, who knows :)
13:38:11 <Ryan (desk)> oh im sure thats the case
13:38:15 <Kevin L™🌵> I suspect VEC has e times that aren't posted.
13:38:22 <JarnoO> think so too
13:38:36 <Ryan (desk)> I think the VEC is susing a standard prediction time regardless of what the last few intervals on GT are
13:39:11 <Ryan (desk)> Why wouldnt they post all of th E times and only some?
13:39:57 <JarnoO> it seems they usually post only E times of the current day rather than looking back and fill in the blanks
13:40:17 <JarnoO> though with Daisy they tend to do a pretty decent job
13:40:29 <Ryan (desk)> Do they have data for more than the last day?
13:40:49 <Ryan (desk)> I just dont understand why theyd stop at midnight or 245hrs...
13:41:22 <JarnoO> I hope that their fancy bluetooth loggers upload their data when a connection is made between it and a phone
13:42:07 <Rice> Where do you find the E-times posted?
13:42:15 <ynpvisitor39> I doubt it. Would drain the batteries if they talked every time someone walked by.
13:42:45 <Ryan (desk)> You can upload to a phone if you have the password.
13:43:03 <Ryan (desk)> It'll connect to any phone with the hobo ware app
13:43:23 <Ryan (desk)> Actually, itll connect to any phone with bluetooth. You just need the app to see the data
13:45:07 <JarnoO> does it also charge the batteries using solar panels?
13:45:32 <Ryan (desk)> I think they get pulled and recharged relatively routinely
13:46:38 <LindaG> slow geyser day. I guess I'm going to end on OF
13:58:43 <Ryan (desk)> have a good weekend
13:59:15 <JarnoO> cya Ryan
13:59:28 <LindaG> Ryan (desk), bye
13:59:47 <Dave from B™> We need some color in our view
14:00:05 <JarnoO> preferably a shade of blue
14:00:22 <LindaG> ok I'm done
14:00:35 <LindaG> bol maybe
14:00:44 <LindaG> *bbl
14:00:47 <Dave from B™> Did Micah bring any markers with him?
14:00:49 <JarnoO> cya Linda
14:00:58 <Dave from B™> Bye Linda. Have a great evening
14:00:58 <LindaG> controls released
14:01:10 <LindaG> JarnoO, Dave from B™, bue

14:08:19 <ynpvisitor39> Strong bees?
14:10:58 <Joe> OF
14:11:04 <Joe> OF
14:11:23 <JarnoO> no need to say twice, Joe :)
14:11:51 <Joe> I like to hear my self talk :)
14:11:59 <Cooper> Jarno, maybe he was really exited, is he on jeporady?
14:12:05 <JarnoO> haha
14:16:36 <ynpvisitor39> No, if he were on Jeopardy, he would have had to answer in the form of a question. Like is that OF?
14:17:13 <Cooper> ok t hen he is on the price is right!
14:18:58 <Cooper> or is he on, Ultimate Nerd Competition:p
15:18:34 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
15:18:49 <Cooper> Dave from B™, bye
15:18:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Good knight
15:31:28 <ynpvisitor75> bsb
15:32:26 <ynpvisitor75> hm, not now
15:33:42 <Micah (Dorm)> There are steamers both immediately beside the South Bubbler and the West Bubbler.
15:33:48 <Micah (Dorm)> Can make it look like they're erupting from a distance.
15:33:55 <Micah (Dorm)> And sometimes even from the boardwalk.
15:38:22 <JarnoO> OF
15:41:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> good afternoon
15:42:00 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
15:42:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> any in-basin time coming up for you Micah?
15:42:42 <JarnoO> afternoon Graham
15:42:46 <Micah (Dorm)> Not for a couple days
15:52:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe you will get a run by an erupting SB coming up then
15:53:11 <Micah (Dorm)> That's a negative.
15:54:41 <Eric> Probably go tonight :-(
15:55:06 <Micah (Dorm)> Oh well.
15:55:09 <Eric> We will be at 8 days in 4 hours
15:57:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> we are over the median for the last 100 eruptions already
15:57:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> overnight isnt bad tho, because theres usually the 10h resurgence of water
16:01:39 <Eric> or a sunrise Steamboat tomorrow wouldn't be bad either :-D
16:02:34 <Micah (Dorm)> You coming in tomorrow Eric?
16:06:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> Craig will already be there, bet he beats Eric in
16:07:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Just look for mailboxes on the ground.
16:08:05 <Micah (Dorm)> Oh I didn't realize that. I'll have to track them both down!
16:08:15 <Micah (Dorm)> Eric How long are you in for?
16:08:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> Lion
16:09:16 <Eric> Graham is a comodian :-P I am not in the park!
16:09:33 <Eric> I have no idea if Craig will be or not.
16:09:49 <Micah (Dorm)> Darn!
16:09:51 <Eric> I should have come over the winter break and camped
16:09:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> i dont think his tailer would make it to Norris now
16:09:58 <Eric> Nice looking lion
16:10:08 <Micah (Dorm)> I could have used a second pair of eyes for my Bulger-Old Tardy-Crystal Project
16:11:01 <Eric> crystal having activity?
16:11:16 <ynpvisitor75> yay Lion
16:11:17 <Eric> Ask Bill to put loggers on them :-D
16:11:45 <Eric> I would love to see relationships of those 3 geysers
16:12:31 <Eric> Why not include belgian in there too?
16:13:57 <ynpvisitor75> I take it this is a Lion ini
16:14:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> lion is an initial based on duration
16:15:19 <Micah (Dorm)> The initial that Rachel and I saw the other day had one heck of a slow start.
16:15:28 <Micah (Dorm)> and then the second finally erupted on the 6th roar.
16:15:40 <Micah (Dorm)> I used to walk away from Lion if it didn't erupt on the 3rd. Guess I learned something new.
16:16:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> i usualy wait for 4 and call it done
16:16:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> noting out of NG?
16:16:31 <Micah (Dorm)> Just doing it's normal 12 minute cycles.
16:16:39 <Micah (Dorm)> Need another disturbance to get it going again.
16:16:50 <Eric> and warmer weather? :-P
16:16:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> 12 is long
16:17:02 <Micah (Dorm)> It's usually 12 from peak to peak.
16:17:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> i prefer 5
16:17:11 <Eric> I wonder with all those fills and surface temps if it cools the system down
16:17:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think it was doing 10m this fall
16:17:58 <Micah (Dorm)> if fills cool it down then extended fills would have a negative effect right?
16:18:11 <Micah (Dorm)> I don't think the fills are what keeps it from erupting.
16:18:30 <ynpvisitor75> wow, that was a lot of steam from fluffy a moment ago
16:18:42 <Eric> No...extended fills might keep the cooling water out and let the sub-surface stuff heat.
16:19:29 <Eric> yep, nice mid cycle puff:
16:19:46 <ynpvisitor75> When do you get to go in to YNP Graham?
16:19:48 <Eric> The cycling is what keeps it from erupting
16:20:10 <Eric> ^^ brainstorming, not stating facts :-P
16:21:41 <ynpvisitor75> I thought they fixed the webcam
16:22:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am supposed to be there on 18th, at OF on 19th. some chance i have to cancel tho
16:22:31 <Micah (Dorm)> Noooooo
16:22:37 <Micah (Dorm)> Who's gonna watch all the sputs with me then?
16:23:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> i have to keep my mom out of the hospital first
16:23:56 <Eric> Best of luck Graham...I have been dealing with parent health the last 2 months :-(
16:25:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah no fun
16:25:37 <Micah (Dorm)> Sorry to hear that Graham.
16:26:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am still hopeful i can go
16:26:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> if not its an expensive cancellation
16:29:23 <ynpvisitor75> as far as your park stay, you should be able to tell them it is a family health issue
16:30:21 <ynpvisitor75> Don't you get travel insurance for your flights?
16:30:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> i would ty .. but I am guessing that with only 13 prior winter trips in row that won't be enough to get me anywhere
16:44:19 <ynpvisitor93> Dave's super bee time ha run out hasn't it?
16:44:32 <ynpvisitor93> He said something about 2 hours a while ago
16:59:36 <Micah (Dorm)> Off to do Steam and Stars. Goodnight everyone.
16:59:54 <ynpvisitor31> bye Micah
16:59:55 <ynpvisitor31> Enjoy
17:00:06 <Eric> night micah
17:01:58 <ynpvisitor23> lots of steam to be had tonight
17:10:47 <JarnoO> fluffball
17:11:09 <Cooper> fluffy.
17:11:15 <Cooper> wow am I on delay
17:11:19 <Cooper> well, not wow.
17:11:27 <Cooper> but usually I am on minimal delay.
17:12:11 <ynpvisitor23> better wind direction than earlier
17:12:15 <ynpvisitor23> for this cam view
17:12:25 <ynpvisitor23> not so much for the peeps on those benches
17:16:35 <ynpvisitor32> Yay lion finally did it.
17:16:54 <Cooper> 32= Linda?
17:17:00 <Cooper> Yes
17:17:03 <LindaG> Cooper?
17:17:10 <Cooper> yes?
17:17:13 <Cooper> what
17:17:17 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
17:41:14 <Cooper> Lion
17:41:15 <Cooper> maybe
17:51:58 <Cooper> C'Mon Lion
17:51:59 <Cooper> do it this time
17:52:04 <Cooper> or not.
18:03:33 <ynpvisitor66> Norovirus has broken out at OF and Mammoth. I hope Micah stays well
18:03:55 <ynpvisitor66> Read a notice from someone working at Lake
18:27:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> Aurum?
18:28:25 <Cooper> was jsut about to ask the same question Graham
18:28:27 <Cooper> I think so
18:28:31 <Cooper> looks like it
18:28:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> Joe posted it, so it is so
18:28:55 <Cooper> what Joe says is the Truth:)
20:06:51 <Cooper> R-Side IE
21:15:44 <ynpvisitor20> very pixelly bee area
21:15:48 <ynpvisitor20> still no bee
21:17:00 <ynpvisitor20> so is that depression area that has so much steam?
21:20:14 <ynpvisitor20> wow, no predictions
21:22:55 <ynpvisitor20> someone on boardwalk near Depression
21:24:05 <ynpvisitor20> if they have Noro virus then everyone needs to start washing hands frequently and using sleeve or paper towel to open doors
21:28:12 <Cooper> I think that is Micha out by Lion
21:28:22 <Cooper> Micah**
21:54:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Lion
22:24:17 <ynpvisitor36> so far partly cloudy
22:24:32 <ynpvisitor36> need it clear for the meteor shower
22:27:31 <ynpvisitor36> I want a bee time story
23:59:22 <ynpvisitor28> Joe, did you beam yourself in for Aurum?
