06:21:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> I hope SB keeps going/picks up .... will be interesting if we get to go and see it too
06:21:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> get there early to claim your 6' social distancing spot
06:21:36 <Joe> It has been there of and on this am, just left of Lion
06:21:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe LC, does it come and go?
06:22:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats a lot of steam for nothing erupting
06:22:30 <Joe> cannot focus at all presently
06:22:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> i know
06:23:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> my trip to Chicago is cancelled next month, have to decide if i rebook the flight to Bozeman for June
06:23:17 <Joe> It has been doing that every 25 38 min
06:23:31 <Joe> 25-20
06:23:36 <Joe> 30
06:24:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> so LC
06:24:27 <Joe> yes most likley
06:25:35 <Lindagt> GO STEAMBOAT, hard to tell if things will get worse for travel. Sigh
06:25:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> my opera marathon has caught the virus ...... so much for lifting my spirits
06:26:02 <Lindagt> 🙁
06:26:58 <Lindagt> I have reservations for GC in may and reservations for YNP in June. Hoping to make it to one of them.
06:27:42 <Joe> It is amazing how easily we can create panic today
06:28:21 <Lindagt> Its pretty easy with social media
06:29:20 <Joe> There is Lion
06:29:36 <CraigC> sorry, I see it as responsible, not panic :)
06:29:38 <Lindagt> Nice
06:29:49 <Lindagt> CraigC, good morning
06:29:57 <CraigC> hey Linda
06:30:16 <CraigC> people trying to catch up with what they should have put in place weeks ago
06:31:31 <Joe> Out of hatred for one man, some are willing to jeopardize the nation for their own self interests
06:31:38 <Lindagt> I guess its how you handle it. I'm doing recommended things while not freaking out.
06:35:43 <CraigC> this is such a touchy topic... but I see chicken/egg..... that the hatred is because one man is willing to jeopardize anything and anyone for HIS own interests
06:41:12 <Lindagt> Wonder if we'll see daisy
06:43:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> lc
06:51:04 <Betty> morning all
06:51:12 <Lindagt> Betty, morning
06:51:16 <KittyM> Hi Betty
06:51:38 <Betty> hi Lindagt, KittyM
06:52:16 <CraigC> hey Betty
06:52:23 <CraigC> Joe, want me to take the cam now?
06:53:43 <Joe> Yes sir.
06:53:55 <Lindagt> Cant tell if that is daisy or castle drift
06:54:58 <Lindagt> Guess castle
06:55:35 <Joe> Dasy probably went when the cam was down ~0625? s/b long gone now
06:55:48 <Joe> Daisy **
06:56:11 <Lindagt> Thx
06:56:43 <ynpvisitor72> how often is the cam failing these days
06:57:38 <Joe> Here are some LC times 0415, 0510, 0544, 0618
06:58:15 <Betty> hi CraigC and Joe
06:58:24 <Joe> Not too often since CL reset their "stuff"
06:58:34 <Joe> Hi Betty
07:00:23 <Betty> when did CL reset, Joe?
07:02:25 <Joe> I think Monday, I was having a few difficulties myself so i cannot say for certain, Betty
07:02:41 <Betty> thx
07:04:10 <Joe> My optical receiver was down for a while this week :)
07:04:36 <Betty> oh
07:04:41 <CraigC> how is it today, Joe?
07:05:42 <Joe> A bit better Craig, seems to be improving
07:05:51 <CraigC> good news
07:06:00 <Betty> yay
07:06:18 <CraigC> then you can see the SB on YNM
07:07:24 <Joe> not yet, straight lines for me :)
07:08:13 <Lindagt> You passed the test 🙂
07:08:27 <Joe> :)
07:09:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> lc
07:09:27 <Betty> hi Graham
07:09:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> morning
07:11:11 <Joe> nice to see LC back 0415, 0510, 0544, 0618
07:11:38 <Joe> Have not seen that in some time
07:11:52 <Betty> me either
07:23:17 <Betty> OF window
07:23:40 <CraigC> thanks
07:23:45 <Betty> becoming white...
07:25:17 <Joe> Craig, are you good at writing scripts for windows?
07:25:37 <CraigC> no, I don't even know what that is
07:25:54 <Joe> Ah! ok
07:26:02 <Betty> bbl
07:26:05 <CraigC> "Hi Windows, how are you"
07:26:12 <Joe> :)
07:26:19 <CraigC> "not well, I just can't get anything done"
07:26:27 <CraigC> like that?
07:27:42 <CraigC> OF
07:31:24 <Joe> I am getting a new windows gaming laptop built, it will be here soon,and I want to use ffmpeg to record the NPS stream, and to restart when the stream drops out. I do that with Linux now but not sure of windows
07:31:45 <Lindagt> More like " frankly, my dear, I dont give a d**n"
07:32:17 <CraigC> do you play games, or doing it for the graphics card?
07:33:44 <Joe> for the graphics card, I have never played a video game, I think I missed ouy.
07:33:56 <Joe> out**
07:34:06 <Lindagt> 😯
07:38:02 <Joe> I know some programmers, but most will give you the death look if one asks
07:38:12 <Joe> ;0
07:41:21 <Lindagt> Joe, maybe Eric would know?
07:41:55 <Joe> I'll try to do it in windows, if that does not work then I will dual boot and use linuc
07:42:06 <CraigC> Eric could explain while you two hike up Ranier
07:42:14 <Joe> Linux**
07:43:48 <Joe> I have asked Eric for many favors, do not want to wear out my welcome
07:45:59 <Joe> Eric would hike Rainier, I would die on Rainier
07:46:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> Eric will carry you
07:46:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> he likes challenges
07:46:49 <Joe> He is strong and healthy :)
07:51:59 <CraigC> need to step away for a few mins
07:52:28 <Joe> Lion
07:58:26 <JarnoO> morning all
07:58:44 <Joe> Hi Jarno
08:02:00 <CraigC> thanks for catching Lion
08:02:47 <Joe> I've solved recording part in windows, now to solve the stream dropout and reset part in windows tt
08:02:58 <Joe> np Craig
08:05:09 <Joe> Aurum
08:05:39 <Joe> Never mind
08:08:41 <Joe> I was watching a recording on another computer, and forgot where I actually was
08:09:19 <CraigC> ;)
08:09:28 <CraigC> Wyoming, Joe
08:09:53 <Joe> one can hope :(
08:25:32 <Lindagt> That was a nice sparkling bee yesterday
08:27:15 <Lindagt> For those who might have missed it, jarno posted 2 eruptions of churn to GT.
08:28:48 <Joe> Did I post a video of the sparkling Bee??
08:29:23 <JarnoO> you did for the Bee yesterday
08:29:40 <JarnoO> relevant video:
08:29:48 <JarnoO> for the Churns, that is
08:29:56 <Joe> Ok thanks, could not remember
08:31:57 <JarnoO> Dep ie/
08:31:59 <JarnoO> ?
08:33:10 <JarnoO> hm, nothing now
08:33:21 <JarnoO> well, a little bit of steam
08:33:25 <JarnoO> perhaps a bubble crash
08:35:19 <Lindagt> And here is three craters, I just attached, compliments of Joe
08:38:01 <Joe> Sasquatch alone does not look that big, but put a bison nesr...
08:38:12 <Joe> near**
08:43:21 <Lindagt> Hehe that's true joe
08:52:29 <TomK> Good morning all
08:52:54 <CraigC> hey Tom
08:54:33 <TomK> OF window?

08:54:54 <CraigC> OF
08:55:50 <TomK> KK, in a minute
08:56:14 <ynpvisitor49> Ugh. Snow. :P
08:57:33 <TomK> Got it
08:58:23 <TomK> I takee it we're looking for BH?
09:04:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice churn video
09:04:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> now i know where to stand to be in the way :)
09:05:25 <JarnoO> :(
09:06:43 <JarnoO> Lion
09:07:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> ooh we get a third Lion
09:08:08 <JarnoO> it cleared up a bit
09:09:45 <ynpvisitor33> I hear the park may not open till June because of the run on toilet paper.
09:10:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> it will be BYOTP
09:11:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> tomorrow is closing day, right?
09:11:41 <ynpvisitor33> It would not be so bad if amazon printed a catalog.
09:12:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> no phone books any more either
09:12:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> oblong
09:12:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> or is it just steam confusing me?
09:13:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> artie too
09:13:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> or who knows
09:13:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> i need retrainig
09:13:28 <JarnoO> not sure on Oblong. Steam looked heavy, but is now gone
09:13:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks more forced than usual
09:14:33 <ynpvisitor33> I don't do those, just steam to me from here.
09:15:00 <Joe> Sears and Roebucks had the paper issue covered years ago, and at Christmas time they would through in a little extra :)
09:16:18 <JarnoO> I don't see any official news releases from the NPS about park closure due to toilet paper shortages
09:18:20 <JarnoO> LC ie
09:19:37 <Kevin L™ > Anyone remember the colored toilet paper?
09:20:21 <JarnoO> I've never seen colored toilet paper, only bleached and that dirt-cheap brown paper
09:21:33 <Kevin L™ > I remember the joke we had in the military. What is the difference between sandpaper and German toilet paper?
09:22:29 <Kevin L™ > Sandpaper is only rough on one side.
09:22:38 <JarnoO> :)
09:30:25 <Lindagt> 😀
09:31:30 <Lindagt> Years ago Johnny Carson made a joke about a toilet paper shortage, the next day everyone ran out and created a TP shortage
09:31:34 <Joe> Just be glad you do not have Clint Eastwood paper...
09:32:07 <Kevin L™ > Maybe they could make it out of bison dung.
09:33:02 <Lindagt> Joe, ok I'll bite joe...
09:33:18 <Lindagt> That didnt come out right lol
09:33:43 <Joe> Doesn't take s*** of of anybody
09:33:43 <Lindagt> What is Clint Eastwood paper?
09:33:52 <Kevin L™ > Dave left New Zealand at the right time. 6.3 EQ today.
09:33:56 <Lindagt> 😀
09:34:13 <Lindagt> Kevin L™ 🚂, that was good timing g
09:34:30 <ynpvisitor33> Dave went there at the right time. They now have a 14 day quarantine for all travelers.
09:34:48 <Joe> Dave leads a charmed life :)
09:35:02 <Kevin L™ > Tell that to the deer.
09:35:10 <ynpvisitor33> It needs to rub off on the deer.
09:35:39 <ynpvisitor33> So Kevin, what are you doing with your weekend? Family, or trains?
09:36:08 <Kevin L™ > Trains this morning
09:36:40 <ynpvisitor33> Or is the nascar channel going to show a race from 1967 Sunday?
09:37:19 <Kevin L™ > I would love that. Real racing again!
09:38:09 <Kevin L™ > My kid subscribed to a service that does a lot of short track racing. Much better that the crap the networks seem to love.
09:38:21 <ynpvisitor33> I think the only sport still competing with a audience is pro bowling.
09:38:48 <Kevin L™ > Maybe curling.
09:39:12 <Kevin L™ > Oh wait, curling never did have an audience!
09:39:17 <ynpvisitor33> Only if they play in a small building.
09:39:31 <Jeff> i was gonna say curling has had an audience before?
09:41:06 <Kevin L™ > I went to a match once here. It was pretty interesting in person. A lot of fun noises. Love it when they slam rocks.
09:41:46 <ynpvisitor33> At least the olympics are not is some 3rd world country again like when they were in Brazil. Japan spent a bunch of cash, but can take the loss.
09:42:09 <ynpvisitor33> bee steam hiding inthe snow
09:42:53 <ynpvisitor33> can not tell as the cam has me in reruns
09:44:15 <Lindagt> Couple of those snow flakes looked big enough to be Indy. But not.
09:44:58 <Kevin L™ > I don't see it. It should be in a half hour to 2 hours.
09:45:34 <ynpvisitor33> Going to be a hard day to see anything, I think the cam has a cold.
09:45:48 <Lindagt> I enlarged it and the snowflakes tricked me
09:46:39 <ynpvisitor33> It looks dark now.
09:47:16 <ynpvisitor33> Got to go, hope you can see something.
10:01:31 <Joe> Today is Pie day, where can I go for some sour cream raisin pie?
10:02:17 <Kevin L™ > Give me boysenberry with ice cream.
10:03:25 <Joe> are any pie shops celebrating pie day??
10:04:44 <Kevin L™ > 7 Eleven has a pizza pie for $3.14
10:09:33 <Kevin L™ > Marie Callendars gives you a free piece of pie with an entree.
10:09:57 <Kevin L™ > Time for training. Enjoy BH.
10:10:11 <Lindagt> Kevin L™ 🚂, enjoy
10:10:19 <KittyM> I believe most if not all pie shops would be celebrating pi day!
10:11:30 <KittyM> Village Inn is
10:12:33 <KittyM> From their web site: "@villageinnMathematical Pi Day is this Saturday, March 14 and we are celebrating by offering $2 off our wholes pies!"

10:18:51 <Cooper pi!> Hi Betty
10:18:58 <Betty> hi Cooper
10:23:17 <ynpvisitor48> Kevin must be reenacting the great train robbery. Instead of gold they are after toilet paper and hand sanitizer.
10:24:51 <Betty> and flour
10:25:02 <Betty> and noodles
10:25:29 <KittyM> Cooper, sorry I didn't see your question. It's Village Inn
10:31:44 <Betty> OF
10:57:03 <ynpvisitor14> Darn, I wanted to watch War of the Worlds today. I thought it would be easy to find a copy on line. No luck so far. Need to see something with a virus that has a positive ending.
10:57:32 <Betty> :-)
11:05:41 <Cooper pi!> 14, maybe try World War Z, because the terminal viruses end up saving them from the zobies.
11:21:16 <Kat> Looks cold and nasty!
11:45:53 <TomK> OF window. Good luck
11:50:03 <Betty> hi Dave, wb

12:04:49 <LindaG> Betty, hi

12:12:18 <Joe> Dave , the Eye clinic Surgicenter there in Billings is staffed with amazing people, they actually waited after hour for me to arrive from thermopoliss
12:12:42 <Joe> Thermopolis **
12:12:59 <Dave from B™> People are going the extra mile during this time of crisis
12:13:15 <Dave from B™> Did you come back or are you talking about your visit earlier this week?
12:14:09 <Joe> had they not I may have lost the sight in one eye if not both, I am very thankful
12:14:32 <Joe> the visit tuesday
12:14:54 <Dave from B™> I'm glad they were able to help you in time
12:16:29 <Joe> It is good that the highway patrol did not slow me down, or a deer :)
12:18:01 <Dave from B™> haha. You were driving with bad eyes?
12:18:53 <Joe> I could see out of one, partialy
12:22:22 <Dave from B™> Hopefully, someone is at SB enjoying big minors right now
12:31:36 <ynpvisitor71> No one is at SB! The park is closed over there.
12:32:49 <Dave from B™> Only West to OF open right now?
12:32:58 <Dave from B™> Just ride your bike!:D
12:33:03 <Michael> In this weather I wouldn't want to be at Steamboat without a 3-day survival kit.
12:33:54 <Kevin L™ > I see you missed an EQ Dave
12:34:36 <Dave from B™> Did someone drop a case of TP somewhere?
12:35:49 <Dave from B™> 2.7 near Three Forks
12:45:47 <Betty> Aurum ie
12:46:40 <TomK> Thanks. What good eyes you have...
12:47:28 <Betty> :-)
12:47:31 <Betty> thanks
12:47:58 <Betty> Kevin used to call me eagle eye
12:48:10 <TomK> "Eye" missed it completely
12:55:25 <Dave from B™> Good afternoon Graham...let's make it happen TODAY!!
12:55:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> i see you kept BH for my shift ...
12:55:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes and welcome back
12:55:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> didnt see many geyser reports from you
12:56:23 <TomK> You ready to take it?
12:56:46 <Betty> I don´t think it was Aurum I saw, just steam
12:56:56 <Betty> hi Graham, wb
12:57:43 <Dave from B™> No geyser times but I will be sharing many pics at some point
12:57:53 <Dave from B™> and short videos
12:59:02 <Dave from B™> I thought your cam drivers license expired:)
12:59:36 <Kevin L™ > Here is the quake Dave:
12:59:58 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🚂
13:00:16 <Kevin L™ > Hi Betty
13:00:32 <TomK> Logging. Everybody have a good one.
13:00:48 <Betty> bye TomK
13:01:06 <Kevin L™ > Bye Tom
13:04:58 <GO STEAMBOAT2> I did just lose my password and had to go back to 2017 emails to find it!
13:05:23 <Betty> hahaha
13:06:11 <GO STEAMBOAT2> looks like i need not have shown up for my shift
13:06:32 <ynpvisitor2> you have to enter SB
13:07:07 <Kevin L™ > 😎
13:07:30 <Betty> we need the Wapitis back
13:16:22 <Dave from B™> Kevin, thanks for the link. I wonder if they felt it on the north island
13:17:03 <Dave from B™> Visiting Christchurch who had major damage to Center of town in 2011 and 2012 EQ was very interesting
13:17:44 <Dave from B™> They are still recovering. It will be another decade or so before center business district is back to "normal"
13:18:16 <Kevin L™ > Major EQ back then if I remember correctly
13:18:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like you had a good trip and avoided he trave chaos?
13:18:54 <Dave from B™> 7.8 range
13:19:50 <Kevin L™ > Your timing was good Dave.
13:19:54 <Dave from B™> We did avoid it. I worry about Kitt who doesn't return until March 21
13:20:21 <Kevin L™ > When are you coming in September?
13:20:55 <Kevin L™ > To the park Dave?
13:21:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> wasnt Kitt on a cruise .... shut down?
13:21:19 <Dave from B™> Sorry...have to go. We can't permission to move my mom's things into a new room at her assisted facility. It took some effort to be allowed in. Be back later. Kevin, plans now are for Labor Day weekend but everything is fluid with virus and having campervan. Taking life 1 week at a time right now.
13:21:45 <Dave from B™> Kitt has been on 3 cruises in NZ, Aus area.
13:22:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> i thought Princess had stopped all their ships
13:22:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> and Kitt is a Princess :)
13:22:33 <ynpvisitor48> She might have to quarantine upon arrival back
13:22:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> good luck Dave, it must be frustrating with elder parents in nursing facility these days
13:23:00 <ynpvisitor48> I would guess ships that were already at sea were allowed to complete their journeys
13:23:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> doesnt sound like there are quaranteen rules for Europe tho
13:23:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah 48, i think they were
13:23:54 <ynpvisitor48> friends coming back from Iceland say they have to quarantine
13:23:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> hpe she stays healthy
13:24:17 <ynpvisitor48> I wonder if they were denied entries to ports on the cruise
13:24:22 <JarnoO> every country has their own quarantaine rules in Europe
13:24:40 <ynpvisitor48> we are talking about the US Jarno, when they return here
13:25:14 <Betty> there are areas that have quarantine for 14 days here in Europe
13:25:38 <ynpvisitor48> anyone going into NZ now has 14 days too
13:25:48 <ynpvisitor48> so Dave did have good timing
13:27:54 <Betty> there are cruises that are not allowed to stop in harbours.
13:28:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> I wonder if Altstdl's have found a route back to Germany, they were supposed to fly through Korea but that was cancelled
13:28:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> new ad slogan, pay for 7 day cruise and get an extra 30 days for free
13:29:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah i know, bad taste
13:29:07 <Betty> lol
13:29:36 <Kevin L™ > I had a private train this morning.
13:29:43 <ynpvisitor48> Betty, are your ski trips off?
13:30:06 <Betty> yes, all ski areas are closed for season
13:30:17 <ynpvisitor48> Too bad the US is not doing that
13:30:23 <ynpvisitor48> greedy until the end
13:30:38 <Betty> that´s not good
13:30:59 <ynpvisitor48> people are making light of the need for social distancing
13:31:02 <JarnoO> a satirical show in the Netherlands advertised with a travelling agency called "Onacor", guaranteeing at least holidays of two weeks
13:31:07 <ynpvisitor48> the US is screwed
13:32:10 <ynpvisitor48> looks like rain is headed to the basin from the radar
13:33:30 <Betty> I´m really not scared to get Corona, but there is a responibility for our older and sick people in our society, so that they can stay healthy
13:33:51 <ynpvisitor2> bingo
13:34:22 <Kevin L™ > You talking about me Betty?
13:34:34 <Betty> so I do everything I can to safe those peeps (including loved ones!)
13:34:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> quite a few peeps at OF .. final winter weekend
13:34:48 <Betty> yes I do, Kevin :-)
13:34:59 <ynpvisitor48> if 30 is a lot of people
13:35:05 <JarnoO> me neither, Betty. Though I treat it as "just another flu virus", I won't purposefully try to get it (nor spread it if I happen to be one of those :P)
13:35:20 <Betty> last OF had about 150 peeps
13:35:42 <Betty> excactly, Jarno
13:36:12 <Kevin L™ > If you are afraid of living and let this run your life you aren't living anyway.
13:36:37 <JarnoO> exactly, Kevin
13:36:37 <ynpvisitor48> That kind of thinking will get a lot of people killed
13:36:45 <ynpvisitor48> selfish
13:37:11 <ynpvisitor2> good point, all this time I avoided playing on the freeway instead of just living
13:37:16 <ynpvisitor48> if one of your family members dies from this you may change your tune
13:38:55 <Betty> I absolutely don´t understand why people need so much toilet paper right now...Corona is not Noro, is it? :-p
13:39:06 <Kevin L™ > Really.
13:39:07 <JarnoO> haha
13:39:39 <JarnoO> "I need to stockpile. But I also need toilet paper by the boatload!"
13:40:44 <Betty> also, you can´t get flour or noodles
13:41:08 <ynpvisitor2> you could 2 weeks ago when I stocked up
13:41:55 <Betty> here it is about 5 weeks now without that stuff
13:42:29 <Betty> they stock up each day, and each day it is sold out again
13:42:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> did you have enough room for your stockpile #2 - or did you rent a storage unit? :)
13:43:04 <Betty> hahaha
13:43:26 <ynpvisitor2> 2 shopping carts was sufficient for our family of 4
13:43:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> guess i shoudl go shopping sometime
13:43:39 <JarnoO> stockpiling is actively discouraged in the Netherlands because it isn't needed (plus as our houses are comparatively small, where would you put that stuff anyway?)
13:43:45 <Betty> :-D
13:44:21 <Betty> same here, Jarno, but people still do it!
13:44:29 <JarnoO> unfortunately, yeah
13:44:48 <Betty> absolutely no need for it
13:47:15 <JarnoO> there are some 959 known cases, which is 20% of the estimated total (they literally say "only call when it's really bad, else just stay at home and let it pass")
13:47:29 <Kevin L™ > Like I say, just try to live like normal and this will also pass. Just take normal precautions but don't go nuts.
13:47:44 <JarnoO> indeed
13:48:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> they cancelled all my operas, so i ant live like normal
13:48:55 <Kevin L™ > Right Graham. They cancelled hockey and races. :P
13:49:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> i thought NASCAR was running with no fans?
13:49:19 <Betty> yes, we just need to have sanity and reason now, no panic
13:51:04 <Kevin L™ > Nope. They cancelled. Even the short track cancelled the races tonight.
13:51:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> of
13:52:27 <Kevin L™ > My wife (school nurse) had 200 people a day this week come to check if they had a fever. Guess how many had one.
13:52:49 <JarnoO> none, null and nil?
13:52:59 <Kevin L™ > You got it!
13:53:07 <JarnoO> :D
13:54:03 <Kevin L™ > What is with all this snow?
13:54:32 <JarnoO> it tries to compensate I think
14:19:04 <LindaG> Hmmm to ight could be slow
14:19:26 <LindaG> *tonight
14:19:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> BH is still an option...
14:19:55 <LindaG> Nice
14:45:13 <Kat> Just went to store to get a few onions! OMG the shelves in produce and elsewhere were bare!
14:46:07 <ynpvisitor2> onions have good ply for wiping
14:46:47 <Kat> Hahaha
14:47:15 <Kat> That's funny!
14:47:22 <ynpvisitor2> ;)
14:51:42 <kcmule> wow nice day
14:52:03 <Betty> hi kcmule
14:52:07 <Kevin L™ > Looks like Colorado in May.

14:54:00 <kcmule> hi Betty
14:54:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> headed out ... enjoy the evening of white
14:55:13 <Betty> bye Graham
14:55:44 <Kevin L™ > Bye
14:56:20 <kcmule> well no sports no concerts no groceries, guess it stands to reason no geysers
14:57:14 <Kat> Bye Graham
14:59:35 <Kat> Covering Graham for a few hours... not much to see :)
15:01:33 <kcmule> from the looks of the radar this might be a while
15:01:39 <Kat> Did not quit
15:02:30 <kcmule> you are too legit for that Kat
15:02:35 <Kat> I agree -goimg to monitor from across the room!
15:04:42 <Kat> kcmule, :)
15:07:27 <LindaG> Kat, hi
15:08:56 <Kat> LindaG, HI - this is awful viewing!
15:09:13 <LindaG> Sure is
15:09:40 <Kat> It's snowing throughout the Park!
15:09:42 <LindaG> OF is about the only thing we'll see
15:10:05 <Kat> I'm going to leave it here - heard from JOe? Hiow is he?
15:10:06 <LindaG> Kat, down to Jackson Hole
15:10:15 <Kat> Wow!
15:10:36 <LindaG> Kat, he was around. I think feeling a bit better
15:11:04 <LindaG> I think they had 8 inches a few hrs ago.
15:11:17 <Kat> :) GHood - been praying for his recovert
15:11:17 <LindaG> Jackson that is
15:12:29 <LindaG> Graham said Bee was still possible 😊
15:12:50 <Kat> Zgood luck with seeing that!
15:13:02 <LindaG> 😆
15:13:08 <Kat> Not spelling well hete HAHA
15:13:13 <Kat> here*
15:13:31 <LindaG> 😊
15:15:44 <Kat> LindaG, went to the store for a few onions - there was nothing on the shelves in produce!Q It was strange!
15:20:08 <kcmule> OF
15:20:08 <Kat> OF 1519
15:20:15 <LindaG> OF
15:20:30 <ynpvisitor2> OF
15:24:07 <LindaG> Kat, was talking to some e that said they were limiting how much meat people could buy - I sure because they are atockpilimg
15:24:47 <LindaG> I havent been the last couple days so not sure around here
15:25:37 <LindaG> Its those senior citizens lol
15:31:04 <Kat> LindaG, Hahaha
15:31:46 <ynpvisitor2> no, we can't carry more than a couple of rolls of TP
15:33:45 <ynpvisitor57> Just went to the store to get some lunch meat.
15:35:50 <ynpvisitor57> No noodles or soup, plenty of veggies, frozen food, cereal, cookies, and candy. Discount bread store was about cleaned out. I guess some people idea of staples is different.
15:36:06 <ynpvisitor57> Plenty of cheese and dairy also.
15:36:44 <ynpvisitor57> Not a very good selection of crackers, but lots of chips.
15:36:47 <Kat> Not herer!
15:36:54 <Kat> Not hre!
15:37:01 <Kat> here*
15:37:03 <ynpvisitor57> They are a discount grocer, so you never know what they have.
15:37:13 <ynpvisitor57> O and lots of beer ad wine.
15:37:31 <LindaG> Everything seemed ok until the day after Trumps nightly address, next day, chaos
15:38:14 <ynpvisitor57> Our run started Friday with the national disaster deceleration.
15:38:21 <LindaG> It was like so eo e turned in the panic light
15:38:40 <LindaG> *on
15:39:41 <LindaG> I went birding today. There is an eight mile drive out along g bay. It was very crowded with cars.
15:40:06 <ynpvisitor57> Best one I heard is something like this. People are staying home and in 9 months there will be a flood of kids born. They will be called caronas.
15:40:25 <ynpvisitor2> LMAO
15:40:39 <LindaG> 😀
15:40:50 <Kat> LindaG, Hahahaha
15:41:17 <ynpvisitor57> The lottery places, and restaurants seem to be busy still.
15:42:42 <LindaG> Well we could see castle if it erupts 😊
15:43:31 <Kat> Maybe
15:43:36 <ynpvisitor57> Mother-in-law is in a rehab place. They locked her up today. Not sure if we can spring her Tuesday to go see the doctor so she can get released.
15:43:54 <LindaG> ynpvisitor57, oh my
15:43:55 <ynpvisitor57> If it were not for those trees we could not see it.
15:44:08 <LindaG> True
15:44:12 <Kat> :)
15:44:36 <Kat> Whertre'smy Wapitis???
15:44:45 <ynpvisitor57> Something about fed regulations no outsiders allowed in facilities.
15:44:52 <Kat> Where's my*
15:45:20 <ynpvisitor57> Dave is no longer taking returns on used keyboards.
15:45:23 <LindaG> I guess those are the places it really spreading
15:46:08 <ynpvisitor57> Not so much spreading. They are the population that is most effected.
15:46:30 <ynpvisitor57> Not like the swine flu that liked heathy young people.
15:46:35 <Kat> BA
15:47:26 <ynpvisitor57> I admite I have poor memory for such things. I do not recall the panic over that and from what I could find to read they are not even sure how many died from it.
15:47:42 <ynpvisitor57> you can see that?
15:48:10 <LindaG> Visibility improved
15:48:12 <ynpvisitor57> Is lion done for now?
15:48:27 <ynpvisitor57> Never remember to look at gt
15:48:36 <LindaG> It will look pretty in the morning
15:48:48 <ynpvisitor57> If it is not still snowing
15:49:24 <ynpvisitor57> And I said just yesterday how the snow was going away fast for March.
15:49:43 <LindaG> Kat, we need some bison for your wolves
15:49:47 <ynpvisitor57> we could see the flower also
15:50:00 <Kat> Yes we do!
15:50:33 <LindaG> Kat, tree swallows and ospreys are back!
15:51:02 <Kat> Great! The Ospreys never really leave here!
15:51:19 <LindaG> Love the swallows
15:52:16 <Kat> :)
15:52:30 <ynpvisitor57> Well, enjoy the bugs. Got to go get propane, but no propane accessories.
15:52:44 <LindaG> ynpvisitor57, enjoy
15:53:03 <Kat> ynpvisitor57, Have a good evening!
15:53:51 <Kat> Stepping away for a minute - making salad!
15:54:24 <ynpvisitor2> little blip on YNM, trying to tease us
15:54:30 <LindaG> Ok

16:03:39 <Kat> Salad made - pierogies for dinner! Yummy
16:03:53 <LindaG> I'll be right there

16:05:03 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🚂, looks like ur weather calmed down
16:05:19 <Kevin L™ > But it is Pi day today.
16:06:46 <Kat> Appetizer right now is guacamole - home made!!
16:13:20 <Kat> Has anyone seen the Harriet Tubman movie? They are charging 7.00 - I want to watch but is it worth itz?
16:26:13 <kcmule> reviews look pretty good on rotten tomatoes
16:26:25 <LindaG> No havent seen it
16:26:26 <kcmule> 97% audience score
16:27:41 <kcmule> i'm hoping 1917 will be streaming but sounds like not til september
16:33:11 <Kat> I think I'll watch it tonight! Cheaper than going to movie theater and safer! :)
