07:04:33 <CraigC> is castle ie?
07:04:39 <CraigC> riverside ie
07:05:50 <LindaG> Oblong looks steamy too
07:06:15 <CraigC> castle looks more post major, no?
07:06:37 <LindaG> Think so
07:07:05 <LindaG> Dont see water
07:10:17 <LindaG> I guess oblong in these temps would be huge
07:14:13 <ynpvisitor7> Guess who has returned from the dead???
07:14:31 <CraigC> what is going on near Grand
07:14:56 <Cooper> morning Craig, been a while.

07:30:22 <LindaG> Jersey is working on it, but I think NY is there, or real close
07:31:02 <Cooper> onlyNY, NC, Texas, California, Washing are Major Disaster Zones then, hmm, though Jersey would have gotten it by now.
07:31:29 <LindaG> Cooper, trying hard not to.
07:32:08 <Cooper> what have I missed besides a bunch of SBs'?
07:32:43 <LindaG> That's it really. Wolves visited again for a while
07:33:38 <ynpvisitor90> Jersey is always a major disaster zone, they just don't like to talk about it :)

08:14:50 <Lori S> But seriously. I spilled a full cup of coffee and it had milk in it. Carpet should smell great in a few days.

08:19:14 <LindaG> Kat, I heard a phoebe this morning
08:19:34 <Kat> :)
08:20:03 <LindaG> 1st of the returning birds here in Jersey
08:20:56 <Kat> LindaG, I have pileated woodpecker hanging out here - love his sound!!
08:21:38 <Kat> Nice first phoebe?
08:21:57 <Cooper> and all I have is a magpie :(
08:22:48 <Kat> Magpie's are cool - but not as cool as a Pileated Woodpecker!!
08:25:05 <Berylliant> I agree, Pileated Woodpeckers are great. I haven't seen our local Pileated for awhile.
08:25:21 <Cooper> I Jimbo, been quite a long itme
08:25:58 <Berylliant> Hi Cooper. I've been on and off
08:26:00 <Cooper> Hi**
08:26:06 <CraigC> grand
08:28:17 <LindaG> Kat, oh wow, pleated! That surprises me.
08:28:58 <Kat> Huh?
08:29:25 <LindaG> Cooper, magpie is cool. If one showed up in Jersey, people would be lined up to see it.
08:29:43 <Cooper> haha, really?
08:29:46 <LindaG> Kat, I dont think of them as being in florida
08:30:01 <LindaG> Cooper, definitely
08:33:13 <Cooper> we have them so much, that they have been "declared" a public harm.
08:33:19 <LindaG> Lol I typed pleated and no one made fun of me. Lol
08:33:55 <LindaG> Cooper, any bird that isnt supposed to be here, draws attention.
08:36:22 <Katie> Hi all. Just logged in
08:36:31 <CraigC> hey Katie
08:39:37 <Lori S> Hi Katie
08:39:41 <Katie> Did I miss my chance to make jokes about pleats?
08:39:50 <Lori S> LindaG, We read Pileated LOL
08:40:09 <Lori S> or however it is spelled
08:41:35 <Cooper> Hi Katie
08:41:49 <Katie> Hi Cooper
08:44:17 <Berylliant> Pleated woodpeckers need to be ironed regularly.
08:45:51 <Lori S> Berylliant, hehe
08:46:26 <Kat> Katie, almost missed your chance with pleated birds!
08:47:14 <LindaG> Lol
08:48:01 <LindaG> Kat, I think of pleats as hard wood forest birds, what kind of trees do you have?
08:48:32 <Katie> We have them here, as well, in pine forests.
08:49:28 <LindaG> Huh, mostly here in old growth hard wood, I've never seen one in pine barrens
08:49:37 <Kat> Oak, pine
08:49:44 <LindaG> Dome ie

09:37:54 <Lori S> Hi KevinS
09:39:31 <KevinS> Lori S, Morning. Guess I forgot to change my name. Been a number for some time now.
09:41:39 <Lori S> :) I do that too sometimes. Usually when I also forget to press play on the cam
09:43:30 <Cooper> Hi Kevin, and the other Kevin, been a while
09:44:17 <KevinS> LindaG, I saw an ivory bill woodpecker in Cleburne County Arkansas a few years back. No camera and never seen one before or since. I was sitting under a tree deer hunting. It got within 30 yards from me.
09:49:44 <LindaG> KevinS, really? Wow!
09:51:46 <LindaG> Dome ie
09:51:57 <Katie> Squirt, too

10:01:24 <Katie> Fine. Be that way. (just kidding - happy driving)
10:01:27 <Cooper> Lori, did your computer cut out on me?
10:04:16 <Lori S> I was afk
10:04:42 <Eric> Morning All
10:04:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
10:05:06 <Eric> Hi Kevin!
10:05:21 <Eric> Look what the coyotes dragged in this morning!
10:05:40 <Eric> Glad to see you back Cooper :-D
10:07:49 <Cooper> Hi Eric
10:08:01 <Lori S> Hi Eric
10:08:03 <Cooper> I am glad to be back, very very very glad :)
10:08:25 <Cooper> so, question....
10:08:40 <Cooper> someone/some people thought I died, and then returned.
10:08:44 <Eric> Hi Coop and Lori
10:08:47 <Cooper> so does that make me a zombie?
10:09:13 <Eric> Yes
10:09:18 <LindaG> Zombie coop
10:10:36 <LindaG> Bee looks promising
10:10:50 <El Zombie Coope> That would be nice
10:11:06 <LindaG> Eric, hi
10:11:29 <Eric> I can't believe Bee didn't go overnight!
10:11:32 <Eric> Hi Linda
10:11:51 <Eric> But that is some serious splashing!
10:11:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave broke it.
10:12:32 <LindaG> He has magical long distance powers
10:13:33 <El Zombie Coope> 5.0 EQ in texas
10:13:51 <LindaG> 🙁
10:14:06 <El Zombie Coope> and we have officialy passed italy in confirmed COBID cases
10:14:16 <Lori S> El Zombie Cooper, wow
10:15:06 <El Zombie Coope> because it appears that Italy hit its infliction point about 3 days ago
10:15:06 <Eric> bsb too
10:15:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Pretty strong for Texas but in the middle of nowhere.
10:17:51 <Lori S> Isn't most of Texas in the middle of nowhere? :p
10:18:41 <El Zombie Coope> haha
10:20:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Strong BSB
10:20:42 <ynpvisitor34> They stopped fracking, the ground is settling.
10:21:12 <El Zombie Coope> Nice BSB
10:21:16 <ynpvisitor34> Italy finally stopped counting the normal deaths as part of the total.
10:21:19 <El Zombie Coope> I think Bee can sense my tetturn
10:21:44 <El Zombie Coope> looks to me like italy reached its infliction point on March 22nd
10:21:48 <Lori S> El Zombie Cooper, you sound like me and SB LOL
10:21:56 <El Zombie Coope> haha
10:22:03 <El Zombie Coope> is that good or bad? :p
10:24:37 <Lori S> Does that mean I am a zombie?
10:25:20 <El Zombie Coope> yes, who shalt we eat first?
10:25:25 <El Zombie Coope> Linda maybe?
10:25:50 <Lori S> No, not Linda!
10:25:59 <El Zombie Coope> how about Eric?
10:26:25 <Lori S> I say we start with the numbers :p
10:27:03 <El Zombie Coope> arty
10:27:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Daisy would be great now.
10:27:27 <El Zombie Coope> even better Idea, how about Dave? I read through chat history and he thought I was 14
10:28:35 <Lori S> Not Dave. Who would we blame things on then?
10:28:45 <El Zombie Coope> ah true.
10:29:01 <El Zombie Coope> It cannot be a number, we dont know what they have in store(get it, Dave has a store)
10:29:22 <El Zombie Coope> dont laugh, that was meant to be a bad joke
10:29:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have a bobcat you can take.
10:29:54 <El Zombie Coope> Who eats bobcats?
10:29:56 <ynpvisitor34> Bob would eat him if he did not have taste.
10:30:09 <ynpvisitor34> Chinese
10:30:42 <Lori S> Ohh, bobcat. Exotic
10:30:47 <Lori S> :p
10:30:54 <El Zombie Coope> BRB
10:31:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This one would make a good egg roll.
10:31:42 <ynpvisitor34> Good with breaded and deep fried bumble birds.
10:37:04 <Lori S> Well, laundry doesn't do itself. Back later.
10:37:11 <El Zombie Coope> bye

12:04:31 <Le Zombie Coope> frogot to ask. How are you Betty, Ryan.
12:05:10 <Ryan(-166)> Hanging in there. Metaphorically and sometimes literally.
12:05:11 <Betty> I´m fine, thanks. Hope you´re doing good too?
12:05:33 <Le Zombie Coope> me too :)
12:06:22 <Ryan(-166)> Spending lots of time in my local caves. They are not much, comparatively speaking, but they are mine.
12:06:37 <Ryan(-166)> Most are within a twenty minute drive of me.
12:06:57 <Betty> that´s great
12:07:01 <Le Zombie Coope> well, now Colorado says you cannot leave yourhouse except for medical, food, or essentioal animal care.
12:07:27 <Le Zombie Coope> So I can only go for runs if I take my dog.
12:07:46 <Ryan(-166)> Yeah I'd put a cardboard cutout of myself in the window and just start my hikes from my house.
12:10:33 <Ryan(-166)> My living room/sunroom is very nice in the summer. When I am not out, I come home and put on a good record and take a nap in the sunroom. Then go in the living room and work on the computer.
12:11:04 <Betty> OF ie
12:11:47 <Betty> Oh, a sunroom would be cool.
12:12:25 <Ryan(-166)> I have a wtaerfall in the back yard
12:12:34 <Betty> I always wanted to have an appartment with a balcony, but I did not get it yet
12:12:45 <Ryan(-166)> Open the windows for a nice breeze, water cascade noises.
12:12:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Last one must have been a short
12:13:03 <Betty> though I have a great appartment
12:13:39 <Betty> think so, Kevin
12:13:44 <Le Zombie Coope> luckly I am 2 miles away from a big mountain, so I can go run up there away from people
12:14:17 <Betty> great outdoor opportunity
12:14:57 <Le Zombie Coope> it makes me feel lucky to have a 3k Square Foot House with an acre.
12:15:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hard to mow though.
12:15:41 <Ryan(-166)> Not sure what mine is.
12:16:48 <Larry in Denver> Cooper, where did you see anything about only going out for essential animal care? The governor's order that I read did not say that.
12:17:05 <Ryan(-166)> 1,820ft²
12:17:38 <Ryan(-166)> 73,000ft² yard, whatever that is in acres
12:18:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think acre is roughly 46,000 sqft.
12:18:52 <Ryan(-166)> Kind of weird I dont know the definition of an acre.
12:19:10 <Ryan(-166)> 4840yd²
12:19:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I used to know all that stuff,
12:19:20 <Ryan(-166)> 43560²
12:19:25 <Le Zombie Coope> there order I got on my phone said essential services such as seeking medical care, food, or caring for a pet
12:19:39 <Ryan(-166)> So 1.7 acres. Glad I have a riding mower.
12:20:05 <Larry in Denver> Read page 2 of this:
12:20:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have 800 sqft of law. Lots more of rocks.
12:20:31 <Ryan(-166)> Its defined by one chain by one furlong (66x660ft). Which is 10 chains².
12:20:57 <Ryan(-166)> It has its roots in the amount of land to be ploughed in one day by a yoke of oxen.
12:22:01 <Ryan(-166)> I did not know a chain was a unit of length, nor was the rod.
12:22:17 <Ryan(-166)> We seriously need to go metric.
12:22:30 <Le Zombie Coope> To engage in outdoor activity, such as, walking, hiking, nordic skiing, snowshoeing, biking or running. To Care for a familly member
12:22:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Rod is 5 yards and a chain 66 feet if I remember correctly
12:22:52 <Ryan(-166)> Yup.
12:22:59 <Le Zombie Coope> COS I know classifies legal pets as family members
12:23:19 <Le Zombie Coope> so if you own the dog, it can be classified as a family member I beleive.
12:23:22 <Ryan(-166)> Again, metric system. I like base units of ten.
12:23:40 <Le Zombie Coope> same Ryan.
12:23:44 <Ryan(-166)> Then again, its all arbitrary anyways :P
12:24:00 <Larry in Denver> The critical heading says "They can leave their home to:..." No mention of needing to have a pet
12:24:14 <Betty> metric is cool
12:24:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is easier Ryan. We tried to convert at NDOT and it was a disaster. Too many things were in English units and there were a lot of conversion errors.
12:24:38 <Le Zombie Coope> here I will find the alert because I know it stated, "excersise, and walking a pet"
12:24:58 <Ryan(-166)> The second, meter, Kelvin, and kilogram (the fundamental base units) are all arbitrary definitions.
12:25:37 <Larry in Denver> Right. Those are separate items on the allowed list.
12:25:51 <Le Zombie Coope> yes
12:26:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How many kilometers in a liter Ryan?
12:26:55 <Le Zombie Coope> haha.
12:27:31 <Berylliant> Is this the snow squall?
12:27:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> One of them.
12:27:53 <Le Zombie Coope> kindoff
12:28:03 <Ryan(-166)> Everything else has a standard defintion. But I could define velocity in apples per coconut so long as I had a defined length for an apple unit and a defined time value for a coconut. Even then though its either based on an arbitrary definition or it itself is arbitrary.
12:28:11 <Le Zombie Coope> the snowquall passed, now we are in the just plain snow.
12:28:12 <Ryan(-166)> The liter is a volume. :P
12:28:50 <Ryan(-166)> The space occupied by one kilogram of water - which of course the kilogram is arbitrary.
12:29:33 <Le Zombie Coope> Ryan, it is easy to calculate anything as long as you define the terms in arbitryary units.
12:29:38 <Ryan(-166)> My favorite unit is the catfish.
12:29:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A liter is 1000 cm cubed.
12:30:15 <Larry in Denver> I once had an electrical meter that was labeled in yards per second. I guess that is easier to understand that furlongs per fortnight
12:30:49 <Ryan(-166)> The rocketry club used it, first as a joke but then over three years the catfish became a generally understood value of time, length, mass, volume, and temperature that we all understood without ever enumerating it.
12:31:20 <ynpvisitor73> Ryan(-166)› The liter is a volume. #how loud is 1 liter??
12:31:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> As long as everyone understands it, it works!
12:31:28 <Le Zombie Coope> Ryan, Find Velocity in Rats, of Tacos, if Rats are 4 Miles, and Tacos are 3 Seconds.
12:31:37 <Ryan(-166)> Thats the modern definition, yes. The historical one is the volume occupied by 1kg of water at standard temperature and pressure.
12:32:10 <Ryan(-166)> I would need a moving object, cooper.
12:32:22 <Le Zombie Coope> I know, that is the funny thing :)
12:32:45 <Jeff> been here couple minutes and yall are throwing around too many numbers and measurements for me right now lol
12:33:11 <Ryan(-166)> You mean you've been here for half a trout*
12:33:50 <Jeff> ok what in the giants cones of bijou did i miss
12:33:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hours, minutes & seconds are based on the rotation of the Earth.
12:34:36 <Ryan(-166)> It's like the Rocco/Ryan foot. It's 0.7 times the standard foot. And thats fine so long as everyone knows that.
12:35:01 <Larry in Denver> Well as spring storms occasionally obscure our UGB vision we can always change seasons by watching that perpetually stalled car on the west entrance exit webcam
12:35:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> What is a cubit?
12:35:54 <Ryan(-166)> Kevin, the hour is arbitrary though.
12:36:17 <Ryan(-166)> So is the second.
12:36:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> True, but it is based on earth spin.
12:36:48 <Ryan(-166)> You can base it off some angular motion, but then the angle is arbitrary.
12:37:27 <Ryan(-166)> If its degrees its arbitrary. One could argue radians are also arbitrary but since its a unitless ratio it becomes a bit more philosophical.
12:38:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> But radians are sooo hard to work with when building a freeway.
12:38:44 <Ryan(-166)> Mmhmm. Even then, I just realized, you still have to pick an arbitrary radian value to base the second on.
12:39:03 <Ryan(-166)> Therefore, I posit that the radian is the only non-arbitrary base unit.
12:39:22 <Le Zombie Coope> if you have not seen it already
12:39:31 <Ryan(-166)> Everything else requires an arbitrary, but universally accepted, derivation.
12:40:04 <Le Zombie Coope> you need to open up the social distancing photo to see it all :)
12:40:23 <Larry in Denver> Yeah, that reporter did not like the approaching bison herd that we saw on the Electric Peak webcam yesterday
12:40:45 <Ryan(-166)> Even then, one can argue that the radian is arbitrary because you still need two length units to derive it.
12:41:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> But the lengths are always consistent with each other.
12:42:01 <Ryan(-166)> The ratio is, yes.
12:42:59 <Ryan(-166)> But to get it you still need two lengths (circumference and radius) based on an arbitrary object.
12:43:53 <ynpvisitor73> Riverside
12:44:28 <Ryan(-166)> Unless - now that I think on it - you do it as a purely mathematical approach where you derive circumference as the arclength of any given value X as pi = int(from -1 to 1) (1/sqrt(1-x^2))dx
12:46:06 <Ryan(-166)> Such that the unitless circumference would then be 2pi (the equation I gave was for a half circle). So I guess then you could define the radian as a purely abstract concept upon which to base a unit of measure.
12:46:30 <Ryan(-166)> I enjoy this way more than continuing pointless handwringing over coronavirus.
12:47:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think we all need to get outside and watch hot water go the wrong direction.
12:47:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sort of like tannerite. Relieves stress.
12:47:56 <Jeff> tannerite is fun
12:48:07 <Rice> And Kevin got tannerite into the discussion
12:48:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
12:48:21 <Le Zombie Coope> Gallium is more fun to play wiht :p
12:49:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Frankly I like white phosphorus but it isn't something to play with. Watching an 8" round of it is pretty awesome.
12:49:48 <Jeff> thermite is fun too
12:50:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes it is. I was watching them use that to weld rail at Tehachapi yesterday.
12:51:39 <Jeff> i may have bought a car from a junkyard a few years ago and mixed up some thermite and then "science" and my curiosity took off lol
12:52:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I bet that was fun.
12:52:52 <Jeff> oh definitely
12:53:03 <Ryan(-166)> cremora bombs are cool
12:53:27 <Ryan(-166)> "bomb" being a misnomer
12:53:41 <Le Zombie Coope> Dynamite "bomsbs" are also fun :p
12:53:51 <Jeff> and i had let my local PD and FD know what i was doing that way they knew what was going on
12:54:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Always a good idea.
12:54:56 <Ryan(-166)> That's a different bomb, Cooper. I can tell you weren't concious for immediate post 9/11.
12:55:19 <Jeff> if i wanted to be really stupid i couldve left all the oil and the small amount of gas left in the car
12:56:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I like putting a 2 liter coke bottle on top oa a 1 pound tannerite can.
12:57:39 <Ryan(-166)> Thermite and ice?
12:58:21 <Jeff> if you wanna have fun without actual explosions i suggest putting some water into a coke bottle and then putting some butane into it and flip the bottle and watch it launch
12:58:45 <Le Zombie Coope> why would that make it launch?
12:59:05 <Ryan(-166)> I can think of lots of pyrotechnic fun without explosions. Mega rocket motors and cremora bombs come to mind.
12:59:20 <Jeff> idk the science behind it lol but its fun lol
13:00:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I know iodine crystals and ammonia are fun too.
13:00:59 <Ryan(-166)> calcium carbide and water
13:01:20 <Jeff> dry ice and water
13:01:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Makes good root beer too.
13:02:00 <Ryan(-166)> 3F blackpowder and powdered coffee creamer :D
13:02:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Never tried that but destroyed my mailbox with 3f once.
13:02:43 <Ryan(-166)> Does not explode - just a big fireball.
13:03:22 <Jeff> anything with fire or big booms are fun lol
13:03:31 <Jeff> or when things go flying lol
13:03:37 <Ryan(-166)> Look up a cremora bomb. BAsically its blackpowder coating the bottom of a paint can, fill up the can with powdered coffee creamer and light the power. It lifts the powder into the air making a big dust cloud which ignites.
13:03:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Excess artillery powder piled and soaked in water is awesome if the safety officer doesn't catch you.
13:04:10 <Ryan(-166)> Makes a big, hot, fireball and typicaly some very impressive mushrooms/toroidial clouds.
13:06:12 <Ryan(-166)> My standards for impressive fire-based displays are pretty high.
13:06:58 <Jeff> if you wanna see a big boom look up biggest mythbusters blast on youtube lol
13:07:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My Son says we need to try that. He has the 3F.
13:08:16 <Betty> excuse me, is that the geyser room? ;-)
13:09:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Depends on your definition of geyser...
13:09:25 <Betty> lol
13:09:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We need to introduce you to tannerite Betty.
13:10:49 <Betty> :-)
13:14:05 <Ryan(-166)> I like my pyrotechnics to be graceful and technically specific.
13:14:35 <Ryan(-166)> While brute release of energy is nice and fun to watch, I like something thats spectacular and precisely does what its designed to do.
13:15:50 <Jeff> i like precision as well but sometimes brute force gets the job done too lol
13:18:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Both are fun
13:19:35 <Ryan(-166)> According to facebook we have defined electron charges, decibels and steradians as non-arbitrary units of measurements.
13:24:08 <Ryan(-166)> Scratch decibels. Those still require a base value.
13:27:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have you been able to get flour yet Betty?
13:28:28 <Betty> I don´t need flour at the moment
13:28:38 <ynpvisitor62> Camp stove propane cans, a flame, and a way to open one immediately makes for a fun pyrotechnic display. Will go no farther as Cooper is still here.
13:29:18 <ynpvisitor62> You need flour to make pretzels. Kevin looks for FedX everyday waiting.
13:29:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Are you going to do Easter cakes? I love the ones you have done in the past.
13:30:13 <Le Zombie Coope> 62, Why???
13:30:43 <Le Zombie Coope> I dont mind, I owuld nto use it unless I had permission from my parents and law enforcment
13:31:26 <Le Zombie Coope> but at least I am back :)
13:31:26 <ynpvisitor62> Never would, so best not to know.
13:34:13 <Betty> we cancelled our Easter family event, so I don´t have to do a cake. We want to have a nice summer party instead, when hopefully everything is fine again. I will do the cake(s) then :-)
13:34:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looking forward to seeing them.
13:35:53 <Betty> you sure will get some pictures, I promise
13:37:02 <ynpvisitor62> You are making me hungry.
13:37:13 <ynpvisitor62> Good thing it is almost lunch
13:41:11 <ynpvisitor62> Enjoy the steam.
13:41:27 <Betty> enjoy lunch
13:43:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A pretzel does sound good about now.
13:58:56 <Betty> Lion ie
13:59:08 <Le Zombie Coope> yay!
14:00:38 <Betty> OF ie
14:01:47 <ynpvisitor2> should Lion post have STATIC cam on it?
14:02:02 <ynpvisitor2> you only saw the steam on static, right?
14:02:53 <Betty> I did
14:03:27 <Betty> on both :-)
14:03:48 <ynpvisitor2> I must have missed it, thanks
14:03:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I knew it was going to do that.
14:04:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Now the snow will mess up Grand.
14:05:20 <ynpvisitor2> West has blue sky on static cam, maybe it will pass quickly
14:05:34 <ynpvisitor2> is it erupting now?
14:32:13 <ynpvisitor73> Grand
14:32:14 <ynpvisitor73> .
14:32:15 <ynpvisitor73> .
14:39:59 <Kat> Looks like a black and white Grand
14:48:59 <Kat1> :daisy:
14:49:37 <Kat1> Nice Daisy
14:50:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Finally
14:50:37 <Kat1> Thats a nice Daidsy
14:50:51 <Kat1> Daisy* LOL
14:54:22 <ynpvisitor17> Kevin needs to wipe his thumb print off the lens.
14:54:43 <Kat1> :lol:
14:56:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Better?
14:57:00 <ynpvisitor17> Yes, looks like a government worker delay.
14:57:33 <Kat1> Hahahaha
14:57:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> So there!
14:57:51 <Kat1> Funnt
14:57:59 <Kat1> Funny*
14:58:08 <ynpvisitor17> Any idea how long before they need to take the cam to the parts store for a new wiper?
14:59:03 <ynpvisitor17> psychedelic man!
14:59:30 <Kat1> Woopwoop! The wiperman!!
14:59:49 <Katie> Purty!
15:00:07 <ynpvisitor17> Well, time to go. Enjoy the fun.
15:00:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bye
15:02:56 <Kat1> Bye
15:07:32 <Betty> improbable bison
15:08:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not going to find much to eat
15:08:41 <Kat1> :)
15:12:17 <Le Zombie Coope> Lion?
15:29:27 <LindaG> Greetings gazers!
15:29:36 <Le Zombie Coope> Hi Linda
15:29:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
15:32:25 <Betty> hi Linda
15:37:49 <Le Zombie Coope> bbl
15:38:02 <Le Zombie Coope> on a new personal note, glad to be back :)
15:51:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think Lion was a one and done.
15:54:18 <ynpvisitor25> Aurum
15:55:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Aurum
15:55:15 <Katie> That felt like a long Aurum
15:55:30 <Betty> woot
15:55:36 <Katie> I didn't time it, by any means...
15:55:46 <ynpvisitor25> I noticed it at 1554
15:55:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Cam wouldn't move on the chat page. :)
15:57:22 <Katie> I hate it when it plays stubborn. It's not our fault!
15:58:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Well it would have moved if I was clicking on the controld page.
15:58:43 <Kat> :)
16:00:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Controls released
16:00:37 <Kat> Hi all!
16:00:53 <Kat> Thanks Kevin
16:05:53 <Betty> hi and bye Kat, time for sleep. Night all
16:06:06 <Le Zombie Coope> bye Betty
16:13:25 <Kat> Bye Betty
16:58:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> What did you do to this poor cam Kat?
16:59:26 <Kat> Whats wrong???
17:00:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lot of failing listed.
17:00:37 <Kat> Yep - but still working!
17:02:25 <Kat> :)
17:05:32 <Kat> OF
17:32:26 <Kat> OT
17:39:41 <ynpvisitor55> so nice to see such a beautiful day in the basin. Go Webcam.
17:40:20 <Kat> :) OT was going strong!
17:40:34 <ynpvisitor80> Riverside?
17:41:15 <Kat> Yep
17:41:44 <LindaG> Hi
17:42:01 <Kat> Hey LindaG,
17:43:19 <LindaG> Kat, how r u?
17:43:58 <Kat> Great! Settled in for another while - enough goods etc for about 3 weeks! LOL
17:44:45 <LindaG> Kat, me too. No more room in garage
17:45:43 <Kat> No more room on the porch, in closet, pantry, etc.......
17:45:57 <ynpvisitor55> please have the cam stay with us through this trying time
17:46:13 <ynpvisitor55> wow Kat, are you a hoarder or do you have limited space?
17:46:37 <LindaG> ynpvisitor55, no plans to turn off cam that I know of.
17:46:49 <Kat> Limited space - I still have a shed out there if I wanted!! LOL:lol:
17:46:50 <ynpvisitor55> it stays ON
17:46:58 <ynpvisitor55> they are advertising as an alternative to being there
17:47:06 <ynpvisitor55> funny Kat
17:47:29 <ynpvisitor55> which makes me very happy, the cam remaining on. Now we just need it to keep working
17:48:50 <Kat> It's very strange going to pick stuff up! This morning with gloves on I took stuff out of plastic bags - put into my bags and gave them their plastic ones back! Haha
17:49:23 <Kat> What happened to daisy I wonder?
17:49:24 <LindaG> Kat, actually got to stare at the bay for a while, that was nice
17:49:40 <Kat> Cool!
17:50:09 <Kat> My old stomping grounds Delaware bay!
17:50:22 <ynpvisitor55> bonus mean when you were waiting for them to bring your groceries?
17:50:43 <LindaG> ynpvisitor55, after I went shopping.
17:51:25 <Kat> the actual Bay - right?
17:51:42 <LindaG> Yes, barnegat bay
17:51:55 <Kat> Ahhhh!
17:53:21 <LindaG> Theres a road that at the end is a bulk head and boat launch. So you can drive right up to the water and park.
17:53:59 <Kat> Nice!
17:54:30 <LindaG> Sometimes I post sunset pictures on faceboom from there
17:54:42 <LindaG> Lol facebook
17:55:34 <Kat> I like Faceboom better Hahahahaha
17:55:46 <LindaG> 😆
17:56:30 <LindaG> Time for dinner bbl
18:01:53 <ynpvisitor49> has Joe been on today?
18:03:00 <CraigC> he logged OF at 0500 and was gone when I came on at 7
18:11:17 <ynpvisitor8> <<<
18:13:16 <CraigC> you doing ok?
18:13:56 <Kat> Who? I'm fine!
18:14:26 <CraigC> :)
18:14:41 <Kat> Ahhhh
18:16:03 <CraigC> a little close to Depression
18:16:21 <CraigC> MC
18:16:33 <CraigC> I think one of The Dwarfs, also
18:16:39 <Kat> Want me to tell him? LOL
18:19:51 <Kat> Daisy - post eruptive
18:28:46 <LindaG> Back again
18:32:16 <Kat> :)
18:32:45 <Kat> Now I need to break and eat.... want the cam?
18:38:02 <LindaG> I'll take it
18:39:23 <Kat> ok -I can get something to eat :)
18:39:32 <LindaG> Have it
18:39:40 <LindaG> Kat, 👍
18:42:15 <LindaGp> OF
18:48:12 <LindaGp> Bulger ie

19:42:38 <Michael> Bison carefully observing the features in middle of Geyser Hill.
20:15:43 <ynpvisitor96> Someone should play with peoples minds and post to GT with out wc.
20:19:22 <ynpvisitor61> You can’t post anonymously so there’s that
20:19:56 <ynpvisitor12> lol
20:20:38 <Michael> nice of
20:21:40 <Michael> I've posted a few times without the wc by accident. Usually I get teased about it within a couple of minutes.
20:22:22 <ynpvisitor31> What does we mean?
20:22:37 <ynpvisitor31> Wc mean?
20:23:10 <Michael> "wc" means "webcam time" for remote observations.
20:23:27 <Le Zombie Coope> wc is a designation we put on our entrys that tells people it was seen on webcam, and it was on webcam time
20:23:37 <Le Zombie Coope> Hi Michal, been a while :)
20:23:54 <ynpvisitor31> Thank you, always wondered what that meant.
20:24:00 <Michael> If a geyser report doesn't have it, that means the person is actually out in the basin. Which would be surprising right now...
20:24:21 <Michael> Hi Zombie Cooper.
20:24:22 <Le Zombie Coope> correction, ti would be bordering illegal
20:24:34 <Le Zombie Coope> 31,
20:25:31 <ynpvisitor31> :thumbsup:
20:28:07 <Michael> I hope we get Grand while there's still a bit of light. Right now would be good. :)
20:35:49 <Michael> And there it is
20:36:09 <Le Zombie Coope> yay!
20:48:24 <Michael> Perfect time for me to call it a night. Thanks camop, for giving us a good view of the action.
