06:04:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> Did i miss anything?
06:09:11 <ynpvisitor68> think you can change your name now . . .
06:14:01 <lindaG> yay steamboat
06:14:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> I want it to keep going. Steam phase will likely mix with water today
06:15:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> No need to look at the seismo, my FB feed had lots of posts :)
06:15:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> Hopefully intervals will drop again
06:20:14 <lindaG> wow it's dark out there
06:21:50 <ynpvisitor60> No spike on the creek this time
06:48:03 <CC> Joe I can take the cam
06:48:36 <CC> I have the cam
06:48:46 <Joe> Great!! thanks, good morning
06:49:00 <CC> morning to you as well
06:50:31 <Joe> Looks like it will be a nice viewing day :)
06:52:36 <Joe> Looks like some Dome action.
06:52:36 <CC> I am amazed at how little snow there is
06:55:49 <Joe> Here in thermop it stayed 45 to 50 all night with a strong wind
06:56:54 <Joe> we are only ~ 100 air miles from the park
06:58:24 <CC> really have to pull back for the camera to focus
07:02:37 <Joe> It was so dark last night, I was unable to even think I saw a geyser, the 0421 OF was hard to see :)
07:08:37 <CC> what a difference light makes...so much easier to see
07:09:00 <Joe> :):thumbsup:
07:10:32 <ynpvisitor68> deep thoughts
07:17:20 <ynpvisitor53> The beast is back. Nice shrinking of its interval

07:34:48 <CC> good call 37
07:35:21 <CC> hi betty
07:35:25 <Betty> oops forgot to change my name
07:35:31 <Betty> hi CC
07:35:45 <Cooper> Morning Everone
07:35:48 <Cooper> Hi Betty
07:35:56 <Betty> hi Cooper
07:36:52 <Betty> a coyote to the right?
07:37:01 <Betty> of the group?
07:37:11 <CC> I saw that but the camera would not move
07:37:25 <Betty> looked like a canine
07:39:43 <Cooper> ccan we zoom back in on the group for a second.
07:41:18 <Cooper> thanks
07:41:54 <Cooper> well Bettys Coyote is not a rock:) as it is not their anymore
07:43:11 <Betty> it would have been a walking rock, Cooper. It was moving when I saw it :-)
07:43:19 <CC> Cooper it definitely was a canine
07:44:04 <Cooper> maybe some others are lurkingi n the trees?
07:44:45 <Betty> you hope for wolves, eh? ;-)
07:45:35 <Cooper> I do
07:46:02 <Cooper> I have seen Hayden, Lamar in person. I would like to see wapiti twice on the cam. Then I will count it.
07:49:15 <Cooper> Happy Palindrome Day(1st in 9 years), and Groundhog Day. And unhappy coronavirus day.
07:49:55 <Betty> and Happy Birthday Micah day
07:50:21 <ynpvisitor68> what did the Groundhog say?
07:50:34 <CC> early spring
07:50:57 <Cooper> And he is already wrong. Colorado is supposed to get 3 storms in the next 2 weeks.
07:53:41 <Cooper> but yes, Colorado does what Colorado Wants to do, unless it wants to "let" the forecasters be correct.
07:54:08 <ynpvisitor68> well it is still winter so the groundhog isn't wrong - yet
07:56:50 <Joe> sy

08:01:08 <Betty> dome ie
08:01:13 <ynpvisitor35> Spring in Colorado MEANS snow LOL
08:01:22 <Cooper> I had a nightmare last night: Steamboat died.
08:01:27 <Cooper> 35, haha, sometimes...
08:02:00 <Cooper> Kitty, you know that sometimes we are predicted to get 4 inches, and we get a dusting:p
08:02:14 <Cooper> or when we are predicted to get 0.1 inches and we get 18. HAHA.
08:03:36 <KittyM> haha!
08:06:07 <Cooper> Colorado Springs, just well, is like Geysers, mostly unpredictable.
08:12:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> In honor of Micah Birthday, I should change my nick
08:13:02 <Joe1> I think Wolves. Watch the light spot in the snow below the left Bison soon it will move and cross to the right, also there are dark spots on the bw> to the right moving https://youtu.be/3nWXqYK3mtk
08:13:37 <Joe1> and I think you can see others
08:14:38 <GO BULGERS HOLE> Thats better
08:14:53 <Cooper> I can see 6 cannine like figures
08:15:08 <Cooper> so I agree it is wolves.
08:16:13 <Betty> I saw nothing on BW but steam, but 2 canine
08:16:43 <Betty> one below the group and one right of the group
08:16:53 <Cooper> Betty, Top Right, Bottom Left, Bottom Right, Top Left, one on the back side of the Bison, and one moving along the edge of the BW.
08:18:01 <Cooper> Betty, do you think wolves?
08:19:37 <Joe1> Coyotes do not usuall y do that with bison...now a pack of marmots...maybe :)
08:22:31 <Betty> I only can tell 2 for sure
08:23:37 <Joe> It is too bad we did not have better light
08:23:47 <Betty> OT
08:24:34 <Betty> maybe another short look now?
08:24:52 <Betty> on the bison I mean
08:28:28 <lindaG> a pack of marmots? do they run in ad is.
08:28:32 <Cooper> aloha Linda
08:28:41 <lindaG> do they run in packs?
08:28:49 <lindaG> Cooper, aloha
08:29:04 <Cooper> I mean Yellow Belly marmots "packs" have stalked me from the top of rocks.
08:29:06 <Betty> hi lindaG
08:29:16 <lindaG> Betty, hi
08:29:22 <lindaG> hello everyone
08:29:25 <CC> bison do not seem to concerned
08:30:08 <Joe> no but I could not remember what a group of marmots are calles
08:30:18 <Joe> called :)
08:30:21 <lindaG> Joe, 😃
08:30:43 <Cooper> I have a picture somewhere of me getting stalked by 8 marmots.
08:31:00 <lindaG> I didn't know they traveled together at all
08:31:28 <lindaG> Cooper, huh didnt know they did that
08:32:00 <lindaG> although i did get chased by an ornery groundhog once
08:32:09 <Cooper> you see
08:32:13 <Cooper> that is me and marmots
08:32:13 <Betty> I German hunter language a male, female and a young marmot are called bear, ape and cat
08:32:32 <Betty> not sure why :-)
08:32:59 <Cooper> sqeak says the marmot in front of me(trying to distract me) and then I turn around and there are MORE just staring at me.
08:33:41 <lindaG> Cooper, moving in for rhe kill no doubt ☺
08:33:50 <Betty> female is cat, young is ape

12:28:30 <Cooper> BLAZING HOT in Colorado, 66 degrees F.
12:33:32 <Kevin L ™️> 32 degrees here and dropping
12:33:44 <Cooper> ah. I would love that!
12:33:57 <Cooper> so hot here I am making iced tea.
12:34:25 <Cooper> tommorow here has a high of 30 and the next day a high of 17. So much nicer weather.
12:34:38 <Cooper> than 68**
12:35:19 <Kevin L ™️> Supposed to get 4 inches of snow tomorrow
12:35:30 <Cooper> by you?
12:35:37 <Cooper> or by me?
12:37:06 <Kevin L ™️> By me
12:37:50 <Cooper> by me we are supposed to get 5.5 ish
12:38:46 <Cooper> but on Tuesday I will have to walk to the bus in 9 degree weather and -8 degree windchill. Which is not the worst, better than 66 Degrees, but not good either.
12:38:48 <Kevin L ™️> You can have my 4 inches
12:38:56 <Cooper> I would take the 4 inche.s
12:39:47 <Kevin L ™️> I would take your 68 degrees

12:55:39 <Betty> Happy Birthday Micah
12:57:21 <Micah (26)> Thanks, Betty.
12:58:18 <Betty> you have the day off?
13:00:59 <Micah (26)> Yep.
13:01:09 <Betty> nice
13:01:24 <Micah (26)> Keeping it low key, laundry and room chores, buying a couple things at the YF store, then going to the SB party at the pub
13:01:39 <Micah (26)> Although if one of ya'll wants to give me Giantess for my birthday I'll drop all of that.
13:02:16 <Betty> hahaha. I wish I could do that for you
13:04:12 <Betty> Aurum?
13:04:23 <Betty> yup
13:04:47 <Betty> pretty early
13:05:14 <Micah (26)> That's the shortest interval I've seen in a while.
13:05:45 <Micah (26)> Actually the shortest out of the last 100.
13:05:47 <Micah (26)> Huh
13:05:53 <Micah (26)> Maybe I'll do the Hill tomorrow.
13:06:14 <Betty> that´s your birthday present
13:06:35 <Micah (26)> I'll take it.
13:06:54 <Micah (26)> Rachel also got me "Geysers and Geothermal Energy" by Rinehart, which is a book I've wanted for a long time.
13:07:10 <Betty> Dome ie
13:37:42 <LindaG> I see Kevin L passed thru shivering
13:39:36 <ynpvisitor14> He must have hit a rock buried in the snow
14:00:38 <ynpvisitor89> Big rise on the creek now. Interesting it is so much bigger than after the eruption of SB
15:25:14 <LindaG> Ha! An OF icicle
15:29:46 <Cooper> I love being thin, I can be a sucker for girl scout cookies...
15:31:12 <Cooper> bought 4 boxes of thin mints, 2 of Tagalongs,, and 6 of my FAVORITE, samoas and 1 of Do-si-dos.
15:31:20 <LindaG> Cooper, they were selling them today, imdidnt buy any because I'm not thin
15:31:44 <Cooper> that will keep me busy for a while, I am currently working on the 1st box of thin mints.
15:31:52 <LindaG> Cooper, 😳 I love thin mints
15:32:19 <Cooper> I think I found tonights dinner!
15:32:22 <Cooper> Cooookies!
15:32:57 <Cooper> 🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪!
15:33:38 <LindaG> 😏
15:34:30 <Cooper> go on Linda, just take one:p
15:36:10 <ynpvisitor28> Keep eating them Cooper and you won’t be thin soon. Trust me!
15:37:11 <Cooper> 28, to work of todays 15 thin mints, I am going for a 2 mile run later.
15:37:11 <LindaG> ynpvisitor28, exactly what I was thinking kind g
15:39:57 <LindaG> Interesting they had GF girl scout cookies. I resisted
15:41:06 <ynpvisitor28> Those 2 mile runs get harder too.
15:41:23 <Cooper> tommorow I am going for a 4 mile run
15:42:33 <ynpvisitor28> I like the coconut Carmel ones and the peanut butter chocolate covered ones.
15:43:25 <LindaG> Yum peanut butter chocolate ones
15:43:56 <LindaG> Truthfully I never ate one I didnt like
15:47:37 <ynpvisitor28> Frankly I find it harder to resist the salesman than the cookies. A cute little kid can con me out of anything.
16:16:16 <LindaG> Hi frozen kevin
16:17:10 <Kevin L™️> Hi
16:17:38 <LindaG> Kevin L™️🥶, where r u?
16:18:16 <Kevin L™️> Just north of Idaho Falls
16:18:33 <LindaG> Oh brrrrrr
16:19:34 <Kevin L™️> Supposed to get down to minus 4 tomorrow night.
16:20:00 <Cooper> Kevin, I will take all your snow and cold.
16:20:23 <LindaG> Ok, that's chilly, did you bri g your polar bear coat?
16:20:44 <LindaG> *bring
16:20:48 <Kevin L™️> I wish I could send it to you
16:22:20 <Kevin L™️> I have the polar bear coat and this time I put the de icer stuff in the windshield washer.
16:23:11 <LindaG> 👍
16:23:51 <Kevin L™️> I learned from my last winter visit.
16:24:23 <LindaG> Things you dont have to think of in nevada
16:25:27 <Kevin L™️> Nope. I don’t think they even sell the deicer fluid there.
16:25:45 <Cooper> Amazon does:)
16:25:53 <LindaG> I guess not
16:26:18 <Kevin L™️> Auto Zone here does.
16:30:29 <Kevin L™️> 74 degrees at home now.
16:36:53 <LindaG> Just I agi e how good it will feel when you get home
16:37:15 <LindaG> *imagine
16:38:27 <Kevin L™️> Yes. My peach and apple trees are budding.
16:39:09 <LindaG> Oh nice, that should be pretty
16:40:37 <Kevin L™️> I love it when the lemon blooms. Nice smell and lots of hummingbirds.
16:41:17 <LindaG> What kind d of hummingbirds, do you know?
16:42:40 <Kevin L™️> Not sure. I will try to get pictures. They nest somewhere nearby because I get lots of tiny ones.
16:43:25 <LindaG> Love hummingbird birds we only get one kind here
16:46:47 <Kevin L™️> They are fun. The babies are only the size of a moth.
16:50:12 <LindaG> I feed them and make sure there are flowers for them
16:53:05 <Kevin L™️> They love my flowers so I don’t even have to feed them.
17:04:06 <ynpvisitor3> Not going to be a very good evening for the cam :(
17:05:47 <Kevin L™️> It really wasn’t good all day
17:06:20 <ynpvisitor3> Any of this weather coming your way?
17:07:48 <Kevin L™️> It will be where I am at. 😝
17:08:33 <Kent> I like 56 a lot better than 25
17:09:12 <Kevin L™️> 31 here now
17:09:31 <Kent> Idaho?
17:09:49 <Kevin L™️> Yes
17:10:44 <Kent> Run up and have a look at Norris for us before you head home :)
17:11:38 <Kevin L™️> I wish
17:17:53 <Kevin L™️> Had to change iPads. Battery was almost dead.
17:19:43 <Kent> Fluff doesn't want to come out in this weather
17:23:32 <Kevin L™️> I can relate right now
17:23:41 <Kent> :)
17:25:45 <Kent> 1725
17:47:22 <LindaG> This morning was the darkest I have seen the cam, it was black
18:05:25 <ynpvisitor96> Kevin was in the funny paper this morning!
18:06:09 <ynpvisitor96> And the marmot still has not seen a shadow today in the park.
18:08:36 <LindaG> Could be getting 8-12 in of snow in YNP
18:13:56 <Kevin L™️> I am hoping that it stays there
18:33:58 <ynpvisitor96> Kevin did you see yourself in the funnies?
18:38:16 <ynpvisitor96> Seeing her circle does not make much difference tonight.
18:38:34 <ynpvisitor96> the
18:38:49 <ynpvisitor96> over and out
