04:25:34 <JarnoO> morning all
05:58:42 <GO BSB> morning
05:59:03 <GO BSB> nice to have a day at home ... on wait, never mind
06:00:49 <JarnoO> morning Graham
06:01:04 <JarnoO> Daisy
06:01:32 <GO BSB> good list of overnight geysers
06:09:56 <GO BSB> did we miss a Lion or did it quit at 2?
06:10:09 <CraigC> hey....Steamboat
06:10:39 <GO BSB> nice of it to keep trucking along
06:10:54 <JarnoO> Lion didn't look so hot just after 0530. I think it's either end of series or had a long interval concluded by a minor
06:11:04 <GO BSB> at least we have something good to chat about, bt the next one will be when the park was supposed to be open
06:11:23 <GO BSB> then peoples frustration will grow
06:12:10 <CraigC> I'm starting to wonder, after all the *****ing I am already reading, if they should let people work that want to
06:14:22 <GO BSB> well the problem would be what we have been working to avoid, overwhelming the hospitals if the spread is too wide and fast
06:14:34 <CraigC> I know
06:14:40 <GO BSB> if most people stay home then some people cold work, but its going to spred fast again
06:15:31 <GO BSB> we dont even know if peoplethat have recvered from it are immune from getting it again
06:15:44 <CraigC> I worry about unrest, there is a breaking point of people not being able to pay bills
06:17:04 <GO BSB> yeah. it worries me that no country has figred out how to reopen. the few that have tried have had new outbreaks and had to restrict again
06:18:03 <GO BSB> warm in the park, may have rain coming?
06:18:06 <CraigC> Bernie asserts that it is more economical for the feds to pay full wages for all people out of work, than to try and fix the broken economy afterwards
06:18:39 <CraigC> but there is no way that would ever pass
06:18:52 <CraigC> unless it was Trump's idea
06:19:01 <GO BSB> i dont know about that, its all unknown now
06:19:09 <GO BSB> haha, even then it wouldnt pass
06:19:28 <GO BSB> i hope states are gearing up for an all mail-in ballot in Nov
06:19:37 <GO BSB> or electronic
06:19:54 <GO BSB> they need to do it NOW
06:19:54 <CraigC> well, I believe him that the fallout of printing money has never caused that much damage, but unfixed, this current trend could
06:21:21 <GO BSB> payment on the debt is getting to be ridiculous tho and fewer workers as the oldies retire...need more immigration to bost the economy, not less
06:23:47 <JarnoO> Dep ie?
06:23:49 <GO BSB> good news, i have an offer on my moms condo and two more showings today ... may need help with Cam this afternoon as i deal with the realtor. will let you know
06:23:58 <GO BSB> yes on Dep
06:24:04 <CraigC> well, all eyes on China and Italy to see what happens next there for more outbreaks and their economies
06:24:36 <GO BSB> italy is likely to be a while, some other european countries wil likely try earlier
06:24:51 <GO BSB> china isso hard to know what the real situation is
06:25:28 <Joe> Did Giantess erupt while I was getting coffee??
06:25:47 <JarnoO> nah, Infant had some action, though :)
06:25:48 <CraigC> can watch their trade
06:26:11 <CraigC> pump
06:26:36 <Joe> Craig are you ready??
06:26:49 <GO BSB> its interesting hearing about the supply chain issues, a lot will change in the future
06:26:54 <CraigC> `not yet, sorry.... need to stap away in a min
06:27:06 <Joe> OK
06:27:51 <CraigC> GO BSB, I am looking into getting ham radio license, I found a site that has an online course for only $10
06:27:54 <GO BSB> i am around if you need to stop Joe
06:28:19 <CraigC> next test near me is June 10
06:28:53 <Joe> Thanks Graham
06:28:58 <GO BSB> cool, sounds like fun.
06:29:22 <CraigC> it might be a good idea for regular gazers to get the license
06:29:40 <GO BSB> but then yo need more radios, right?
06:29:52 <CraigC> you can get the 5 watt for around 20
06:30:07 <CraigC> the 8 watt is about 40
06:30:22 <CraigC> then there are antenna upgrades
06:30:31 <CraigC> brb
06:30:55 <Joe> It is very helpful as you can use more frequencies and power
06:31:07 <GO BSB> yeah, I generally find the radio noise annoying with too many people listening to too many channels, so I am ok for the most part
06:31:23 <GO BSB> now if theres a brighter flashlight .. thats different for me :)
06:32:39 <GO BSB> usually people can hear my calls from F&M and I can hear others, so I am pretty happy as-is
06:33:39 <Joe> Most amateur radio operators are a different breed, kinda like gazers!
06:34:00 <GO BSB> i could see it making sense if we move en-mass to the GMSR frequencies with less chatter and more power
06:34:08 <GO BSB> or GMRS, whatever
06:35:01 <GO BSB> some will complain with FRS only radios, but it would be better to switch frequency as most new radios suport it
06:35:33 <GO BSB> its just not as dramatic a benefit as you get with the switch from CB to FRS when that happened
06:36:22 <GO BSB> so maybe we try 44.5 or something like that, whatever the numbers are
06:37:04 <GO BSB> with GT available and working pretty well in the park, the need for FRS is reduced
06:37:13 <GO BSB> bulger
06:39:13 <GO BSB> depressing to think we will be #1 on Covid 19 deaths soom ...... "the numbers will be great"
06:39:56 <Joe> Every now and then you hear 'waves on grand' but for the most part it is 'Martha where did you park the car?'
06:44:36 <CraigC> back, I can take it now
06:44:50 <Joe> Some people think the tone makes things private, but legally you have to monitor the frequency before you transmit, that is what the mon button is for.
06:44:59 <Joe> OK Craig
06:45:02 <CraigC> yeah, ham people ARE different, the two I know are more nerdy
06:45:20 <JarnoO> they go ham with the radio :)
06:46:02 <CraigC> I would guess that ham people are less contentious, though ;)
06:46:29 <Joe> IF you hear the call KB7ZEI you will know who that jerk is :)
06:46:30 <GO BSB> CraigC, hahaha
06:46:50 <CraigC> Joe, you have a current license?
06:47:00 <Joe> Yes
06:47:19 <CraigC> :thumbsup:nice, now I know who to pester if I have questions
06:47:51 <Joe> I will try to answer honestly :)
06:48:40 <CraigC> I agree about the noise pollution in the UGB, I commented a lot on that last summer with some people
06:49:38 <CraigC> I would be at some spot like Doublet bench, and tourists walking by, and my radio goes off with typical "hey (insert name), go to channel 6"
06:49:58 <CraigC> all tourists switch fromlooking at the feature, to looking at me
06:51:10 <Joe> yep they think you are an 'official' something
06:51:39 <GO BSB> thats why people wnt to ban cell phone improvements
06:52:12 <CraigC> if they could make it so phones only worked along the road ways
06:52:15 <GO BSB> what gets me is when there are 10 radios blaring at Grand, or F&M, or Giant ...
06:52:28 <GO BSB> or 20, or more
06:53:08 <CraigC> :(
06:54:17 <CraigC> GO BSB, if you have time, can you look at GOSA video from yesterday between 940 and around 1015, see Silver Spring
06:54:25 <GO BSB> thats one reason I often hang around Sawmill group
06:54:39 <GO BSB> ok, will do
06:55:04 <CraigC> GO BSB, I like hanging by Bulger when Grand is due
06:55:55 <Joe> Craig with GPS, which all phones have it is possible to make them only work along roads
06:56:56 <CraigC> intersting
06:57:10 <GO BSB> why wold you do that?
06:57:41 <Joe> I haven't looked yet but did the GOSA caputre work most of the dat??
06:58:01 <CraigC> GO BSB, to keep people off phones in the basins
06:58:23 <Joe> day??
06:58:43 <GO BSB> thats not helpful tho ....
06:58:45 <CraigC> I havent looked either
06:59:05 <GO BSB> or do you want to stop people calling you but still get GT?
06:59:13 <GO BSB> would that stop texts coming thru too?
06:59:25 <JarnoO> GOSA 40× misses some parts during the afternoon
06:59:28 <CraigC> GO BSB, oh, right.... was forgetting about GT
07:00:03 <CraigC> the whole reason I switched to verizon last summer
07:01:40 <CraigC> cam seems better today
07:02:00 <GO BSB> 40 speed was too fast, even when i slowed it down to 10x
07:02:04 <GO BSB> looking at the 4x now
07:02:31 <Joe> I know that the drone manufacturers have software drones will not fly in certain areas, I think that is the reason drone flying incidents are down in YNP
07:03:00 <Joe> all gps based
07:05:47 <CraigC> both anemones ie
07:07:11 <Joe> You probably get this also but google sends me a report of every mile I have traveled and every place I visited I think you can turn it off, but just for you they keep and sell the info.
07:07:56 <CraigC> what feature is this
07:08:20 <CraigC> north of giantess
07:08:22 <Joe> If I ever need an alibi I will tell them to ask google :)
07:08:46 <CraigC> ;)
07:11:12 <CraigC> would that have been Vault ?
07:11:13 <Joe> I am not sure Craig but every month i get a report a map showing the roads i traveled and street views of places I have stopped at, i think it is part of google now.
07:11:16 <GO BSB> looked at the video, lots of steam from SIlver, probably splashing
07:11:31 <CraigC> GO BSB, thanks
07:12:02 <CraigC> GO BSB, that is unusual, isn't it? I don't recall ever seeing it like that over the last year
07:15:07 <GO BSB> i have not watched it closely on the webcam. from the boardwalk it does seem to be splashy sometimes but below the rim
07:15:39 <Joe> I just checked the email it says it is from location history a google account
07:15:41 <GO BSB> i added a noe to yesterdy for LS being ie at that time too, it gets merged with Thursdays eruption if you dont enter it as a note
07:16:51 <CraigC> GO BSB, which one is this
07:17:13 <CraigC> it looks from here like it is on the other side of the boardwalk
07:19:16 <CraigC> marmot cave
07:19:47 <CraigC> coyote ????
07:21:39 <CraigC> anyone see that?
07:22:32 <GO BSB> sorry Craig, my stream was frozen then
07:22:49 <CraigC> it is on getvideo
07:23:09 <CraigC> when I zoom on MC, it trots in the background
07:23:31 <CraigC> https://chat.geysertimes.org/dvr/ugb/ugbWebcamTime_04112020_072159.mp4
07:23:38 <Joe> yes I see it
07:25:02 <GO BSB> bulger
07:32:32 <JarnoO> morning Terry
07:33:51 <GO BSB> looks like a big blob of snow heading for the park
07:37:11 <CraigC> of
07:41:47 <LindaG> Oh my! Snow.
07:41:55 <LindaG> Good morning all
07:43:39 <JarnoO> morning Linda
07:43:39 <CraigC> hey Linda
07:43:55 <CraigC> had decent viewing at 7
07:43:55 <JarnoO> Going to be a great day for gazing /sarcasm
07:45:11 <JarnoO> morning Jeff
07:45:18 <Jeff> hey JarnoO
07:45:37 <LindaG> Maybe it's a fast moving storm, we can hope
07:46:03 <CraigC> hey Jeff
07:46:12 <Jeff> hey craig
07:46:55 <LindaG> It's amazing how these storms move in and out
07:49:55 <Joe> We say in Wyoming, if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes it will change, if you do like the weather....
07:50:17 <CraigC> lol
07:51:30 <LindaG> 😊
07:52:45 <Joe> Looks like Grand IE
07:53:02 <Joe> maybe
07:53:31 <Joe> yep looks like
07:54:00 <LindaG> Think I see a plume
07:54:34 <Joe> and it is not from a Peacock :)
07:54:52 <JarnoO> are you sure it isn't Rift?
07:55:24 <Joe> Only Ryan would know that :)
07:55:35 <JarnoO> anyway, it looks a lot like Grand
07:55:40 <LindaG> 😆 huh no peacock emojis
07:55:44 <JarnoO> so Grand it must be
07:56:02 <Joe> yep that is Grand
07:56:27 <LindaG> Theres a burst
07:56:30 <JarnoO> Joe, I've waited 5 minutes and weather hasn't changed. Can I now sue Wyoming for not living up to that?
07:56:47 <CraigC> Joe, you want to enter it?
07:57:07 <Joe> ok
07:57:56 <Joe> That way if I am wrong you can flag me later, I like the color red :)
07:58:07 <CraigC> ;)
07:58:53 <Joe> is that a 2nd :)
07:59:33 <Joe> I'm pushing it now, huh?
07:59:39 <LindaG> Definitely a burst
08:00:14 <LindaG> Riverside I think
08:00:42 <ynpvisitor79> Joe liking color red. He must be a bull
08:01:12 <LindaG> Maybe not
08:01:31 <Joe> 79, some people have said that about me :)
08:01:57 <LindaG> Looks to be over so maybe it was a second
08:02:19 <Joe> aggressive, pushy, AH,
08:04:12 <Joe> I think it was a second but conditions are so bad I;ll leave it un numbered
08:05:47 <CraigC> I think riverside now
08:06:02 <Joe> yes
08:06:08 <JarnoO> does look like it
08:06:36 <JarnoO> Daisy should be somewhat more visible than Grand and Riverside as it currently stands
08:06:56 <Joe> Jarno new e-mail
08:07:12 <JarnoO> thanks :)
08:08:19 <CraigC> daisy
08:08:35 <Joe> tes, your good!
08:08:46 <CraigC> or not
08:08:58 <CraigC> is it?
08:09:01 <Joe> yes not tes
08:09:34 <CraigC> it looked distinct, then it all blended
08:09:57 <LindaG> Oh it was riverside
08:10:11 <CraigC> LindaG, talking daisy
08:10:23 <LindaG> CraigC, I know
08:10:26 <Joe> 2h 19 min looked good to me
08:10:50 <Joe> 2h 10 min
08:10:57 <LindaG> CraigC, I was just going to say daisy but you did
08:11:20 <CraigC> LindaG, :)
08:11:59 <LindaG> CraigC, I was exclaiming my surprise that it was riverside, had decided maybe not
08:12:06 <Joe> Daisy, Daisy give me your answer do, yES
08:13:17 <LindaG> Look at churn
08:13:41 <LindaG> Churn erupting i think
08:14:49 <LindaG> He probably optical illusion
08:15:50 <CraigC> can someone trun Sprinkler off
08:16:52 <Joe> I think JSJ broke the valve on that one :)
08:17:23 <LindaG> I guess it was sprinkler
08:18:12 <CraigC> al
08:18:37 <LindaG> I am so delayed
08:18:40 <Cooper> frogot to change my name
08:18:54 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
08:19:08 <CraigC> you rname is frog?
08:19:16 <Cooper> Hi Linda, and Craig
08:19:24 <CraigC> hey cooper
08:19:56 <Joe> If you were 14 they would put you in jail for forgeting that, Coop
08:20:01 <Cooper> I had a weird dream last night... I was in YNP, BH was starting, and then a plane crashed on GeyserHill and destroyed everything
08:20:14 <Cooper> haha
08:20:23 <Cooper> luckly I still have a month and 4 days to figure that out
08:20:45 <CraigC> a month and 4 days... heh
08:21:00 <Cooper> at least I think that is how long until may 15th.
08:21:39 <ynpvisitor117> What happens May 15?
08:22:11 <Cooper> I turn 14 I think.
08:22:19 <CraigC> our Cooper becomes the big one four
08:23:24 <ynpvisitor117> You stop dreaming then?
08:23:28 <CraigC> fyi, those are not bison
08:23:37 <Joe> where else would you do mental subtraction :)//
08:23:40 <CraigC> will Dave let me follow rocks?
08:25:02 <CraigC> if they ever do a highlight reel, I want that to be on mine, zooming in on 3 parking lot rocks
08:25:08 <Joe> it is time to text Super Dave
08:31:46 <CraigC> Rift Major
08:32:57 <CraigC> hey Kevin
08:33:04 <JarnoO> morning KevinS
08:33:17 <KevinS> Morning everyone
08:38:55 <CraigC> al
08:44:17 <JarnoO> oh hey, the weather changed
08:51:05 <JarnoO> morning kc, Tom
08:51:10 <TomK> Goo morning all
08:51:33 <CraigC> hey Tom
08:55:05 <TomK> 'goo' ? Good morning
08:55:26 <ynpvisitor74> You may be right on both counts Tom.
08:55:46 <CraigC> it was goopy a while ago, hardly any visibility
08:55:51 <TomK> So Anemone is the big attraction today?
08:56:20 <LindaG> Nice it cleared
08:56:39 <JarnoO> morning Kevin
08:56:45 <LindaG> Morning TomK, and KevinL keeper of chicks
08:56:50 <CraigC> TomK, yesterday Silver Spring was very energetic, so I have been keeping my eye over that way
08:57:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Morning Linda
08:57:41 <JarnoO> "Keeper of Chickens", starring Kevin L and a bobcat... When will the movie be released?
08:57:54 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, 😊🐥
08:58:19 <LindaG> JarnoO, 🌞
08:59:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I hope it will be me skinning that bobcat Jarno
08:59:09 <TomK> Now my absence from the park is showing. "Silver spring" ?
08:59:34 <JarnoO> it's next to Little Squirt
08:59:58 <CraigC> right here
09:00:02 <JarnoO> OF ie static
09:00:13 <TomK> TY. 0900, I'll take it to OF, window opening
09:00:37 <TomK> got it.
09:00:41 <CraigC> cool
09:01:10 <JarnoO> hm, short interval. I wonder if the next eruption will put it in a long-short pattern
09:01:14 <TomK> How is everybody? Staying healthy, I hope.
09:01:28 <CraigC> physically safe, mentally a wreck
09:01:58 <JarnoO> am doing fine. It does get a bit hot in my room because the sun's literally standing on my window and I have no airco to cool myself :(
09:03:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am doing fine here but wishing I could be out and about before the Summer forces me back inside.
09:04:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How are you doing Tom?
09:05:26 <TomK> Here in western Washington the sun has come out of winter hiding and we get to walk around more.
09:06:09 <TomK> We are symptom free, avoiding other people, reading, computer, etc
09:07:18 <TomK> Neighbors and daughter-in-law making grocery runs. We stay home
09:09:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Store runs are miserable. Took me 45 minutes just to get into Costco and all I needed was 5 minutes at the hearing aid center.
09:14:47 <LindaG> Soon I'll have to make a store trip, never thought I'd dread that. I love to shop, but not worth my health.
09:15:02 <LindaG> TomK, glad all is well with you and yours.
09:16:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 5.3 quake on ca/nv border near Mono Lake
09:16:40 <TomK> Our Costco is 25 miles from Canada, so less crowded with the border closed to shoppers. But the clerk told our neighbor that the 'senior only' hours are mobbed.
09:18:11 <JarnoO> beautiful signature of that quake on YMC
09:20:59 <JarnoO> Cascade has a nice blue color to ie
09:21:01 <JarnoO> it8
09:21:06 <JarnoO> it*
09:21:26 <LindaG> My Costco is relatively small. Doesnt get terribly crowded. Not as many people around me. The one north of me is huge and packed on a good day.
09:21:37 <TomK> Is that picture near Silver Spring?
09:22:16 <JarnoO> do you mean if Silver Spring is centered on this frame?
09:22:22 <LindaG> The center steam
09:22:29 <JarnoO> if so, it's in the center :)
09:22:34 <TomK> Yes.
09:22:46 <TomK> TY
09:23:16 <LindaG> Squirt stopped
09:23:27 <Cooper> sorry I frogot to mark myself away, but carmel french toast is too good to pass up :)
09:23:39 <Cooper> but I see Lori got on, Hi Loir!
09:24:12 <Lori S> Hi Coopre
09:24:27 <LindaG> Lori S, hi
09:24:40 <Cooper> yesterdays steamboat was 91 right?
09:24:41 <Lori S> Hi Linda. I snuck in :)
09:24:49 <JarnoO> Aurum
09:24:50 <JarnoO> .
09:24:51 <JarnoO> .
09:24:51 <Lori S> Cooper, yep
09:24:52 <JarnoO> .
09:24:56 <GO BSB> wooho
09:25:31 <Cooper> Nice Aurum
09:25:47 <Cooper> so I have a question, do I stick with Cooper , or do I slowly transistion to Korben?
09:25:58 <JarnoO> that's up to you
09:26:09 <Lori S> Unfortunately, 92 will begin a new count. How many since the west gate were to have opened
09:26:27 <Lori S> *was to?
09:26:58 <Lori S> Cooper, Just rip off the Band-aid :)
09:28:16 <Cooper Korben> there, tommorow it will be Korben
09:32:58 <Lori S> Cooper Korben, Now the Band-aid is just dangling there by one side. :p
09:33:02 <JarnoO> Bulger ie
09:33:13 <Cooper Korben> lol
09:34:05 <JarnoO> sasquatch has gotten rid of its snow
09:34:29 <TomK> No critters today?
09:34:52 <JarnoO> not as of yet. Might walk in soon, though
09:35:14 <JarnoO> bison at the foot of SC's mound
09:35:48 <JarnoO> Dep looks steamy again
09:35:54 <JarnoO> AB
09:36:18 <JarnoO> LC ie
09:38:00 <JarnoO> Tom, would you mind keeping it on Dep for a bit?
09:38:39 <JarnoO> I think Dep ie
09:38:44 <JarnoO> just off screen
09:38:55 <JarnoO> Dep ie
09:39:18 <JarnoO> looks like a good one
09:39:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice splash
09:39:38 <TomK> NP, we take requests
09:39:56 <JarnoO> makes me wonder if 0623 ie was a bubble crash rather than an actual eruption
09:40:48 <Lori S> TomK, Could you arrange a Giantess? :p
09:41:40 <JarnoO> back vent action from Dep, with those little splashes above the crater?
09:42:27 <TomK> :)
09:45:11 <JarnoO> AL

10:31:20 <Joe> remember the the song "take this job and shove it" ?? replace the word job with snow :)
10:31:24 <visitor106> Must be close to Easter.
10:32:08 <Betty> be thankful it does not snow eggs then
10:32:17 <visitor106> How about this one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEcyvuVyuZg
10:32:19 <Joe> :)
10:33:12 <visitor106> I think we are about even on snowy Easters.
10:34:49 <Betty> do you remember that ol´Bing Crosby song? I´m dreaming of a White Easter?
10:35:10 <LindaG> Joe, I think you are going g to be cold tomorrow
10:36:11 <Joe> am I dieing tonight then ://
10:37:45 <LindaG> Joe, not that I know of. 😉
10:38:19 <Joe> State Farm will not be happy, they will owe my wife lots of money :)
10:40:25 <TomK> OF
10:41:27 <LindaG> 4-8 in snow for YNP
10:43:08 <Joe> I left my plow attached to my truck so it should not snow here :)
10:43:43 <LindaG> Joe, good thinking 😀
10:44:00 <visitor106> Did you was the car?
10:44:04 <visitor106> wash
10:48:02 <Joe> washing any vehicle causes snow!! my vehicles are all the same color now "mud"
10:53:19 <LindaG> Nice splash
10:55:50 <LindaG> Says you did 😊
10:56:04 <Cooper Korben> and again :p
10:56:09 <Cooper Korben> The chat does not like you today
11:00:00 <LindaG> Look at giantess
11:00:10 <LindaG> Hot runoff
11:04:15 <Cooper Korben> lol
11:07:12 <ChrisO> Happy Saturday all :)
11:08:09 <Lori S> H ChrisO
11:08:37 <Cooper Korben> Afternoon Chris
11:08:52 <Betty> hi ChrisO
11:09:13 <ChrisO> anyone out west feeling "shaky"?
11:10:31 <Lori S> Bison at Mammoth
11:11:36 <Lori S> Critters at the north gate area too
11:13:28 <Lori S> ChrisO, no shaking in West yellowstone
11:14:30 <ChrisO> meant anyone that lives out in CA/NV
11:32:11 <Lori S> illegal vehicle or employee?
11:33:03 <TomK> Employee. NPS has rangers at the gates
11:33:48 <Betty> LC ie I think
11:34:09 <TomK> Interps not on furlough + LE both
11:34:33 <Betty> now it stopped
11:34:47 <TomK> Of course
11:43:00 <ynpvisitor100> Only rangers at gates are at North Gate. No other gates are manned right now
11:43:42 <ynpvisitor100> Did furloughed Interp rangers come back?
11:43:46 <TomK> My info as of last night, OF interp manning west gate
11:44:38 <ynpvisitor100> Well they might be in that office yet there is no one in the kiosks
11:44:59 <TomK> We got a phone call from one of them while at the gate
11:45:48 <ynpvisitor100> All gates are closed, wonder what they were doing? Did they say?
11:46:48 <ynpvisitor100> Is your wife still planning to go in May?
11:46:50 <Lori S> pickup at west gate right now with sideways ranger car
11:47:01 <Lori S> *suburban
11:47:48 <Lori S> nps suburban has been there a while thouu
11:48:40 <ynpvisitor100> I would guess they do not want anyone near the kiosks
11:49:17 <ynpvisitor100> Touching windows, etc
11:50:55 <TomK> We have no definite plan to go in May. Summer seasonals on hold.
11:51:16 <ynpvisitor100> Glad to hear that
11:52:22 <ynpvisitor100> Hoping things stay shut tight for awhile yet
11:53:19 <TomK> Daisy window openns at 1201, OF window at 1205
11:54:06 <TomK> We know of no NPS plan to open the park
11:54:23 <ynpvisitor100> Not sure any maintenance person will be up for cleaning vault toilets anytime soon!
11:54:40 <Lori S> ynpvisitor100, understatement there
11:54:51 <ynpvisitor100> Sholly outlined one, yet no timetable
11:54:59 <Lori S> will need to give them haz mat suits
11:55:08 <ynpvisitor100> Definitely
11:56:06 <ynpvisitor100> And people won’t want to use the vault toilets so they would be peeing and pooing all over YNP
11:56:32 <ynpvisitor100> Best to leave it closed
12:01:13 <ynpvisitor100> Tantalus creek spikes look like there was a big mixed water phase after the initial eruption yesterday
12:02:03 <JarnoO> Castle ie
12:02:07 <GO BSB> or is it rain and snowmelt?
12:03:01 <TomK> Sorry, must switch to OF now
12:03:06 <ynpvisitor100> Not much rain or snowmelt happening yet
12:08:13 <GO BSB> i dont think its the restart, observed ones have not put out anywhere near that amount of water
12:08:42 <GO BSB> I will stick with rain and snowmelt as the reasons, it can jump a lot
12:13:06 <Odin+ie> Saw on Accuweather parts of the park could get 12-18"
12:14:03 <TomK> took a quick peek at daisy, visibility too bad to see anything
12:15:05 <TomK> OF
12:15:32 <Cooper Korben> I am seeing 6-9 inches for parts of YNP
12:16:34 <Odin+ie> The map is low-resolution; looks like most of the park is in that range, Cooper.
12:17:11 <Cooper Korben> yes.
12:17:17 <Odin+ie> https://wordpress.accuweather.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/page-6-3.jpg?w=632
12:17:49 <Cooper Korben> https://www.weather.gov/riw/weatherstory
12:17:52 <GO BSB> looks like some is sticking on the boardwalk now
12:22:43 <GO BSB> i expect this will lear in 40 min :)
12:22:50 <GO BSB> clear
12:40:33 <Michael> Good. Looks like Castle made it to steam phase.
12:41:09 <Betty> yep, major
12:45:14 <Betty> Lion
12:57:29 <GO BSB> fyi i will be a bit late, but it doesnt look like it will matter :) :(
12:57:30 <TomK> Wwindow for Grand, time for me to leave.
12:57:34 <GO BSB> was castle a Major?
12:57:56 <TomK> yes, Castle major
12:58:35 <GO BSB> ok, thanks. hopefully JarnoO will update it on GT
12:59:04 <Betty> we can tell him if he shows up
12:59:29 <TomK> I have to leave the cam on OF when I go
13:00:06 <Betty> thanks Tom, have a great day
13:00:06 <TomK> Bye all, it's been fun
13:00:28 <Michael> Bye TomK. See you next week.
13:00:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I can take it until you get here Graham.
13:01:11 <Betty> did not know you can drive in the snow, Kevin :-)
13:01:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have a set of chains Betty
13:01:38 <JarnoO> oh, Castle major. Probably eaten a bit too much, as I had fallen asleep :P
13:01:55 <Betty> :-)
13:05:14 <ynpvisitor5> Blue sky at West Gate
13:11:54 <JarnoO> Riverside
13:16:00 <Betty> wow, it cleared
13:19:56 <LindaG> Ah some blue sky
13:20:11 <LindaG> Uh oh that's a bad omen
13:25:33 <LindaG> Grand will look good
13:32:37 <JarnoO> Grand
13:34:27 <GO BSB> thanks for moving the cam, whoever did
13:34:45 <Betty> kudos to Kevin
13:35:08 <GO BSB> thanks Kevin. logging in now
13:35:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Controls released Graham.
13:41:30 <JarnoO> 9m
13:41:43 <JarnoO> b1 done
13:42:20 <JarnoO> 2nd
13:42:34 <JarnoO> took some time to get going
13:43:26 <JarnoO> b2 done
13:43:39 <Betty> OF window
13:45:08 <GO BSB> blue sky, nice
13:45:30 <JarnoO> Grand done, appears very C
13:46:44 <JarnoO> Lion around 1404
13:47:05 <JarnoO> but first time for the fluffball
13:47:12 <GO BSB> thnks JarnoO
13:47:15 <Michael> Time for a walk. Hope you all get a blue-sky Beehive.
13:47:27 <JarnoO> enjoy, Michael
13:51:10 <JarnoO> Bulger
13:51:43 <GO BSB> it has switched to minors
13:52:46 <JarnoO> I think it always has had those minors, but they're probably not noticed soon enough
13:53:12 <ynpvisitor94> Blue sky at basin now too
13:53:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> OF window Graham
13:53:18 <GO BSB> it will often have a series of majors or minors, and switch occasionally
13:53:39 <ynpvisitor94> he's a rebel
13:53:39 <JarnoO> interesting, thanks for that
13:53:49 <GO BSB> thanks Kevin
13:54:46 <ynpvisitor94> just in time
13:54:58 <ynpvisitor94> or not
13:56:48 <JarnoO> Cam seems to be back at it again with the stuttering
13:56:53 <JarnoO> on my end at least
13:59:15 <ynpvisitor86> Not any better on the NPS page
13:59:21 <JarnoO> OF
13:59:49 <GO BSB> nice and early so we can go to lin
14:04:35 <JarnoO> purr
14:06:11 <ynpvisitor17> In double interval for Daisy too...
14:06:36 <JarnoO> isn't it great if everything wants to go at once?
14:07:00 <ynpvisitor17> Good problem to have
14:07:44 <JarnoO> roar
14:07:51 <JarnoO> water
14:08:04 <JarnoO> Lion
14:09:44 <GO BSB> it thought about pausing but didnt
14:09:47 <ynpvisitor86> Except then nothing wants to go.
14:09:48 <JarnoO> Lc
14:10:59 <JarnoO> isn't it great that, after you've carefully made a prediction model, the geyser in question doesn't want to adhere to it?
14:11:32 <Betty> :p
14:11:39 <JarnoO> oh well, the only constant is change
14:12:02 <ynpvisitor86> You LC prediction was wrong?
14:12:04 <JarnoO> and done
14:12:52 <JarnoO> no, my Lion prediction after I saw Betty timed it at 6m15s. Predicted would be 1h16m±5m, it gave 1h23m (2m past window)
14:14:04 <ynpvisitor86> Maybe Betty needs a new watch?
14:14:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Betty broke it?
14:14:21 <JarnoO> my post broke it :P
14:14:24 <Betty> no, I rechecked per getvideo
14:15:19 <ynpvisitor86> a getvideo conspiracy.
14:16:36 <JarnoO> Lion actually paused for two seconds during its eruption
14:18:12 <ynpvisitor86> Watching a old cowboy movie. The dude jumps on a wild horse bareback and the stunt man is riding with a bareback rig and bucking strap.
14:18:36 <ynpvisitor17> One of the A'a went, but didnt catch which one
14:18:51 <ynpvisitor86> I guess it was one of the small screen movies and they thought no one would see.
14:19:32 <GO BSB> what does a Lion pause dp th the following interval JarnoO?
14:19:40 <GO BSB> do to
14:20:13 <ynpvisitor86> Well, enjoy pump and calculating.
14:23:36 <JarnoO> I don't really know, Graham. Haven't observed that many pauses during a Lion, thus I think it's generally a lack of data for accurate telling
14:24:20 <GO BSB> ok, thanks. I just treat paused eruptins as majors for predicting, but I am not a Lion tamer like you are
14:26:44 <GO BSB> forgot about Daisy, probably missed it
14:27:38 <GO BSB> still some steam there
14:27:52 <GO BSB> but not much
14:29:49 <JarnoO> though I do have some suspicion that pauses can lead to a shorter overall erupting time (for example, not too long ago it had ±1m eruptive time before the pause and another ±1m after the pause). Might mean that the Lion system consists out of two parts - an upper and a lower chamber if you will. Both function as "expected" during an initial and regular eruptions, (...)
14:30:00 <JarnoO> while only the first part "works" during a minor and with the second chamber (only partly) involved during a paused eruption
14:31:05 <JarnoO> I'll be going more in-depth on that in my thoughts about Lion which I'll hopefully be posting on the listserve later this week
14:31:57 <JarnoO> Daisy
14:32:27 <GO BSB> yeah, didnt miss it
14:33:19 <GO BSB> could be like hat Jarno, like OF clearing out more chambers in a long
14:36:20 <GO BSB> not much snow in the valley
14:38:59 <ynpvisitor17> even less on the hill...
14:40:24 <GO BSB> it does have in-ground heating tho :)
14:40:50 <GO BSB> yeah just got lodging refund for my nn-trip to Chicago next week
14:41:01 <GO BSB> or non-trip
14:50:59 <GO BSB> whats the Lion prediction now?
14:51:59 <JarnoO> 1514±5m
14:52:17 <JarnoO> so you have some time
14:52:24 <GO BSB> tank you
14:52:41 <GO BSB> trying to keep Aurum in frame in case it hasnt gone yet
15:03:52 <GO BSB> roar
15:04:08 <JarnoO> it's early at the party
15:05:00 <GO BSB> roar
15:06:28 <GO BSB> roar
15:13:03 <GO BSB> looks snowier up at Mammoth
15:13:57 <GO BSB> lots of lion purrs
15:14:09 <JarnoO> not looking so hot
15:14:34 <GO BSB> you are at mid-window now tho ...
15:14:55 <Betty> can we have a close look?
15:16:54 <JarnoO> finally some good action
15:17:15 <GO BSB> yeah big rorr this time
15:17:28 <JarnoO> and it throws that chance away like it's nothing :(
15:17:51 <GO BSB> still 2 min to go ...
15:18:06 <JarnoO> LC
15:19:43 <JarnoO> roar
15:20:07 <JarnoO> Lion
15:20:28 <GO BSB> 1 min late
15:20:39 <JarnoO> minor so far
15:20:43 <GO BSB> and paused ....
15:20:44 <GO BSB> lc
15:20:58 <GO BSB> and minored
15:21:03 <JarnoO> I wonder if there's a correlation between roars and the chance on getting a minor
15:21:44 <GO BSB> ooh good point, that might make sense
15:22:05 <GO BSB> you just committed yourself to hours of GOSA replays :)
15:22:12 <JarnoO> haha
15:22:35 <GO BSB> I had Lion at 1520 on the cam control ...
15:23:39 <JarnoO> also with /getvideo. Only barely, at :02
15:25:26 <JarnoO> OF ns static
15:25:28 <JarnoO> and roar
15:25:31 <JarnoO> help
15:25:39 <JarnoO> Lion
15:26:19 <JarnoO> it's struggling
15:26:27 <GO BSB> uhoh, OF is due
15:27:05 <JarnoO> pause
15:27:18 <JarnoO> Lion's really pesky this week
15:27:22 <GO BSB> sorry, had to move
15:28:02 <JarnoO> OF 1523 ns static
15:29:02 <GO BSB> uhoh, my bad
15:30:04 <GO BSB> so it went right at the start of the window :(
15:30:05 <ynpvisitor17> how short to be a minor on Lion?
15:30:26 <GO BSB> i will lose my license
15:31:49 <ynpvisitor17> frankly, Lion more interesting
15:32:38 <GO BSB> but not for most watchers. of course without NPS predictions, maybe fewer are watching, that would be an interestijg statistic to check
15:37:05 <JarnoO> purr
15:38:30 <GO BSB> all wet at West Gate
15:45:57 <GO BSB> BSB
15:47:58 <Betty> I think the bubblers always wait till it´s really bad viewing conditions
15:48:24 <GO BSB> haha, yeah
15:51:05 <JarnoO> :bee:
15:51:06 <JarnoO> .
15:51:07 <JarnoO> .
15:51:08 <JarnoO> .
15:51:09 <JarnoO> .
15:51:10 <JarnoO> .
15:51:39 <JarnoO> well drat
15:51:44 <Betty> woohhhh
15:51:48 <LindaG> Wow
15:52:24 <LindaG> It just took off 😊
15:52:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just had the Thunderbirds do a flyover at my house.
15:52:52 <JarnoO> just a little too much water released can have a huge impact
15:53:10 <JarnoO> quite tall
15:54:12 <LindaG> Perfect timing just sat down to watch for a while
15:54:41 <JarnoO> was a text sent, by the way?
15:55:00 <LindaG> Yes
15:55:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I got it
15:55:09 <JarnoO> good
15:55:18 <GO BSB> still pretty white on white
15:55:31 <GO BSB> wind is doing a good job, enough but not too much
15:56:01 <JarnoO> remained tall during this eruption, even moreso that with all other eruptions I've seen
15:56:07 <JarnoO> than*
15:56:21 <Kitt> delay can be good
15:56:28 <GO BSB> about time you sjowed up Kitt
15:57:17 <Kitt> We made Lasagna, then we baked 2 loaves banana bread one with nuts and one with chocolate chips)
15:57:29 <Kitt> now we are baking pumpkin pies
15:57:49 <Kitt> well I was until my phone whistled with a text
15:58:04 <LindaG> 😊
15:58:25 <GO BSB> sounds niceKitt. do you deliver?
15:58:32 <Kitt> we finished watering our back yard and the temperature has dropped dramatically
15:58:41 <Kitt> sorry bsb
15:59:05 <LindaG> Nice surprise
15:59:21 <GO BSB> we were lucky with the view
15:59:24 <GO BSB> not so good now
15:59:24 <Kitt> nice eruption
15:59:48 <Kitt> we are windy with very chilly temperatures and cloudy skies
15:59:54 <Kitt> no snow yet
16:00:09 <Kitt> Happy, healthy early Easter
16:00:16 <Kitt> back to pie making
16:00:27 <JarnoO> long Bee at 5½m
16:00:28 <GO BSB> shortest interval since Feb
16:00:35 <JarnoO> enjoy, Kitt
16:01:23 <KevinS> / getvideo is going back just 10 minutes now?
16:02:47 <JarnoO> yes, apparantly the stream failures early on the eruption were severe enough to temporarily halt the code which makes those videos, meaning it made a whole new video
16:03:08 <JarnoO> it should be back around 15 minutes soon
16:03:27 <JarnoO> if the stream doesn't fail again, that is :)
16:06:18 <JarnoO> Iran is slowly lifting its lockdown
16:07:18 <JarnoO> and Russia is using a jet engine to spread sanitizer across the streets
16:14:04 <GO BSB> like that is going to help, gee
16:14:15 <GO BSB> what is the Lion prediction JarnoO?
16:14:40 <GO BSB> not that we will know if ou are right
16:16:19 <JarnoO> would've been 1545±10m if 1525 is considered as a separate minor. Perhaps 1610±10m if both are to be considered as a single eruption separated by 5 minutes
16:17:25 <GO BSB> ok, thanks
16:17:43 <GO BSB> and suddenly it clears up
16:22:02 <JarnoO> it's full
16:22:12 <JarnoO> though it doesn't look hot
16:22:37 <Betty> not in overflow
16:22:43 <JarnoO> MC
16:23:18 <JarnoO> good splashin
16:23:19 <JarnoO> g
16:25:52 <JarnoO> I don't think we'll be seeing Lion in this series again. Could be wrong though
16:26:00 <Betty> ugh
16:26:04 <JarnoO> seems like the dome needs a spin
16:26:06 <GO BSB> not a good down basin view
16:35:44 <LindaG> Thought we could use a good eruption https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2GECbIa3Gy4&feature=youtu.be#dialog
16:37:05 <GO BSB> just received an add from VisitNJ.org ....... wait, do you want out of state visitors?
16:37:46 <GO BSB> thats a remarcable eruption, its still active
16:40:32 <LindaG> GO BSB, I had to Google it before I shared. Didnt believe it was erupting now
16:40:53 <LindaG> GO BSB, Jersey wants you!
16:41:29 <GO BSB> isaw a few eruption posts o FB, didnt know if i should believe them myself for a bit
16:41:47 <GO BSB> Jersey has been a drive thru place for me most of the time
16:42:08 <GO BSB> i did spend a weekend at a friends house at Avalon
16:42:25 <GO BSB> and went to Princeton Festival for opera one summer
16:42:28 <JarnoO> the Indonesian authorities have released 14 VONAs so far on Anak Krakatau, so to me it's really of no surprise it's still active
16:42:35 <LindaG> Avalon is nice
16:43:44 <GO BSB> and visited some friends who lived in long Valley
16:44:30 <LindaG> Long valley is nice too. Have a lot of family out in that area
16:45:32 <LindaG> Friend of family has 100 acre farm in hackettstown, which is next to long valley
16:45:55 <GO BSB> nice, expensive place
16:46:40 <GO BSB> friend was a VP for big pharma, so he had the cash
16:46:45 <LindaG> It's very nice but he cant break it up, has to be sold whole
16:47:21 <JarnoO> Bulger ie
16:48:11 <LindaG> Because of a watershed act. A real sore subject out there
16:48:17 <GO BSB> its nice that they have some land thats protected from development. not so good if you own it tho
16:48:58 <GO BSB> had similar thing around London, called the Green Belt to try and prevent continuous sprawl
16:49:05 <LindaG> He keeps it meticulously groomed
16:49:26 <LindaG> At least area around house
16:49:45 <GO BSB> Daisy is slow
16:50:05 <GO BSB> there it is
16:54:20 <JarnoO> OF
16:54:36 <JarnoO> weird start
16:54:50 <JarnoO> what even was that, so unlike OF
16:57:49 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
16:58:02 <JarnoO> night Betty
16:58:10 <GO BSB> night Betty
16:58:19 <LindaG> Betty, night
16:58:28 <GO BSB> hope the Easter Bunny visits you
17:06:49 <JarnoO> LV ier
17:06:52 <JarnoO> LC ie*
17:13:57 <LindaG> Governor of Montana issued a cute letter about magical creatures, like Easter bunny and tooth fairy as being essential. Very sweet.
17:39:16 <JarnoO> did the view go in quarantaine too?
17:39:35 <GO BSB> its improing now
18:16:38 <GO BSB> lc
18:22:18 <Cooper Korben> my fickle dog can never get caught :P I know he is stealing my food everytime I turn around.
18:22:31 <Cooper Korben> or else, where would it go, very slowly
18:22:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Try a rat trap
18:22:59 <Cooper Korben> Kevin, do you know those sticky spider traps?
18:23:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> yes
18:23:24 <Cooper Korben> I put a little bit of food in them, he got it and it stuck to him. So it is him
18:24:39 <Cooper Korben> how is your day going Kevin?
18:25:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We had a dog that kept knocking our trash can over. We finally put a rat trap with bacon on top of it. Only took about 10m and we heard a Snap ar ar ar ar. Trash never got knocked over again.
18:25:47 <Cooper Korben> mabye I will try that :)
18:26:28 <ChrisO> was beehive good tonight?
18:26:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> do prep work for Monday. Have to replace old 1977 coax to new stuff to keep broadband working. Right now it is on an RG6 running across my front lawn into a window.
18:26:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was White on White Chris
18:27:07 <ynpvisitor75> Something erupting in pipeline meadows group (behind OF) on other side of river?
18:27:16 <JarnoO> Dilapidated ie
18:27:21 <JarnoO> at last again!
18:27:51 <JarnoO> thanks #75
18:27:57 <ynpvisitor75> Cool!
18:28:13 <Cooper Korben> Awesome
18:29:33 <JarnoO> I wonder if OF will do an un-OF-like start again as it did @ 1654
18:31:01 <ChrisO> honest question: what do you mean by that? Was at my nightly "mental health" meeting.
18:31:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The Thunderbirds did a flyover to all the hospitals in the valley. They were about 500 feet up about 3/4 mile from my house. It was a great show. Nice break. Most of the neighbors were outside watching on their roofs.
18:32:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was during a big snow squall Chris.
18:32:39 <ChrisO> ty Kevin
18:32:57 <JarnoO> OF was very underwhelming during that eruption. Not tall at all and needed 6 "stages" to reach a steady eruption height, losing nearly a third or quarter of the jet's height between stages. I wouldn't even give it 100 feet. Even Lion looks bigger during its initials
18:34:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Need to pick some lemons. Making a lemon pie for tomorrow.
18:34:30 <Cooper Korben> bye
18:34:47 <JarnoO> SC wants to go
18:39:35 <JarnoO> OF
18:39:57 <JarnoO> this looks more like it
18:40:41 <JarnoO> for comparison, the 1654 eruption reached about half the height of this eruption's maximum
18:43:49 <ynpvisitor102> noise on the seismo, wonder if they are plowing
18:45:13 <JarnoO> Time for downbasin features
18:48:49 <GO BSB> riverside
18:49:45 <ChrisO> has that spot always been that way, or is that from this winter?
18:50:22 <JarnoO> what spot?
18:50:37 <ChrisO> trees between the two steam plumes
18:51:20 <JarnoO> that between Grand and Riverside?
18:52:08 <ChrisO> yea the big steam plume on the right side of the screen
18:53:07 <JarnoO> as far as I know that's been Riverside's spot since we switched to this cam
18:54:25 <JarnoO> Daisy
18:55:28 <LindaG> Wow cleared nicely
18:59:19 <JarnoO> a Grand
18:59:40 <LindaG> Grand?
18:59:48 <JarnoO> yes
19:00:57 <LindaG> Looked like fluffy for a second 😉
19:01:40 <JarnoO> at least there's enough wind to blow away any steam should it pause and have a 2nd
19:01:51 <JarnoO> *knocks on wood*
19:03:55 <JarnoO> Bulger
19:05:55 <JarnoO> nice bursting
19:08:28 <JarnoO> b1 done I think
19:08:38 <JarnoO> yes, b1 done
19:09:52 <ynpvisitor75> big push from Oblong
19:09:59 <JarnoO> one and done by the looks of it
19:10:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Put another quarter in it
19:10:53 <JarnoO> could the cam be panned to Dilapidated for a bit?
19:11:05 <JarnoO> hoping it's in series
19:11:47 <JarnoO> a bit of steam
19:12:01 <JarnoO> not sure if post-eruptive or pre-eruptive though
19:13:22 <Korben> maybe that will cause the chat to stop thinking I quit
19:13:40 <Korben> werid seeing my username as Korben instead of Cooper
19:14:14 <JarnoO> thanks for the pan. Steam has decreased to next to none by now, so I think we just about missed it
19:14:54 <JarnoO> or has it?
19:16:51 <JarnoO> would suggest, though, that Dilapidated's interval was about 40-ish minutes
19:18:41 <KorbenC> Hi Michael
19:19:08 <Michael> Hi KorbenC.
19:20:44 <JarnoO> AB
19:23:28 <JarnoO> I'm off. Enjoy Dilapidated
19:23:33 <Michael> Seems like I picked a quiet time to visit. I guess Dilapidated will give us a way to get excited about the next OF window.
19:23:50 <GO BSB> night JarnoO
19:24:02 <Michael> Bye JarnoO
19:24:13 <JarnoO> I'd suggest looking for it around 1947-ish or so, assuming it keeps ±40m intervals
19:24:22 <JarnoO> LC to say me goodbye :)
19:47:08 <ynpvisitor75> Check on dilapidated?
19:48:20 <GO BSB> i dont know what you look for over here
19:48:35 <GO BSB> other than steam somewhere :)
19:50:10 <Michael> If I remember right, it's left of OF. Been a while.
19:50:37 <ynpvisitor75> Big steam plume across the river slightly left of OF.
19:51:24 <ynpvisitor75> Didn't see this time, just reporting what we saw earlier...
19:51:32 <GO BSB> ok, thanks. i didnt see one
19:52:04 <ynpvisitor75> agree
19:59:46 <GO BSB> lc
20:00:36 <LindaG> When you look at a of dilapidated is in the back on the left
20:00:46 <LindaG> *OF
20:01:03 <GO BSB> thanks
20:09:42 <GO BSB> of
20:13:03 <GO BSB> is that dilapidated?
20:13:24 <LindaG> I 5hinkmso
20:13:31 <LindaG> I think so
20:13:32 <ynpvisitor75> yes
20:14:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Are you talking about me again Graham?
20:14:19 <LindaG> Yay
20:14:50 <GO BSB> dilapidated, not decripidated
20:17:13 <GO BSB> i am done for the day
20:17:24 <GO BSB> enjoy the nighttime
20:17:41 <LindaG> GO BSB, goodnight and thx
20:19:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
20:19:08 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, didnt see any trains on loop today
20:19:10 <GO BSB> goodnight
20:19:24 <Michael> Nite, Go BSB
20:19:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I caught a couple
20:20:02 <LindaG> Looked a few times, I guess bad riming
20:20:17 <LindaG> *timing
20:20:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Should be one at Flagstaff in a few minutes.
20:21:10 <LindaG> Oh a new station
20:21:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> One on the Loop right now.
20:22:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Flagstaff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnotRrW1udI
20:23:07 <LindaG> Thx
20:24:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Amtrak due at Flagstaff at 2046 local time.
20:27:42 <LindaG> 👍
20:33:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Train ngines have dynamic brakes. What the do is use the motors that drive the train as generators and hook the power to heating coils to slow the trains. At Flagstaff the eastbound (right to left) use them and you can see the glow sometimes at night. It is purple a little behind the cab.
20:35:25 <LindaG> That's interesting. I doubt I'll be up that late but would be fun to see.
20:36:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There is a chance on the next one by.
20:36:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 3-4 minutes
20:37:29 <LindaG> Ok I'll watch
20:40:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No glowing. :(
20:42:23 <LindaG> Oh good because I didnt see any
20:42:38 <LindaG> Thought maybe I missed it
20:42:39 <KorbenC> well I am going to bed, goondihgt everyone, see y'all in the morning
20:42:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
20:43:11 <LindaG> KorbenC, night, hey new name, nice
20:44:10 <KorbenC> better than Cooper, if my computer would work I would go to bed :p
20:44:58 <LindaG> KorbenC, 😊
20:52:05 <LindaG> Pretty sky. Good night all
20:52:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
