06:01:25 <LindaG> Morning all
06:02:11 <Betty> morning LindaG
06:02:18 <LindaG> Betty, hi
06:04:27 <LindaG> Oh I wonder if giantess has water
06:04:53 <Go STEAMBOAT> morning Linda. Yesterdays comment was that it was filling
06:04:54 <Betty> at least it looks like it has
06:05:21 <LindaG> It does look like it, the steam seems to be sitting in top
06:05:25 <LindaG> Go STEAMBOAT, hi
06:05:34 <LindaG> *on
06:06:11 <ynpvisitor83> steamy runoff
06:06:21 <LindaG> Yeah
06:06:29 <LindaG> Nice
06:06:43 <Go STEAMBOAT> ooh an Oblong yesterday too, nice
06:08:07 <LindaG> Giantess doesnt look so benign anymore
06:08:24 <LindaG> For me anyway I never saw itmerupt before
06:10:58 <Betty> Vault is steamy too
06:11:22 <LindaG> 😊
06:15:03 <Betty> Depression ie
06:16:57 <LindaG> Hmmm marmot is quiet
06:18:49 <Go STEAMBOAT> dome
06:18:52 <Go STEAMBOAT> .
06:18:56 <Go STEAMBOAT> .
06:18:56 <Go STEAMBOAT> .
06:18:56 <Go STEAMBOAT> .
06:19:37 <Go STEAMBOAT> is this initial?
06:19:37 <LindaG> Nice
06:20:22 <Go STEAMBOAT> is that Peanut on the right of the trees by Infant?
06:20:33 <ynpvisitor83> think ini
06:23:10 <ynpvisitor83> yes on peanuyt
06:24:08 <Go STEAMBOAT> no more steam from it now
06:26:27 <Go STEAMBOAT> long duration on DOme, must have been ns ini
06:35:38 <ynpvisitor83> road construction
06:36:02 <Go STEAMBOAT> new barriers?
06:37:30 <Go STEAMBOAT> are they blocking the ahead lane since you cant go back to OF?
06:47:21 <Go STEAMBOAT> have to ask Mr Mug what is going on there
06:52:37 <Betty> Dome ie
06:55:47 <Go STEAMBOAT> Isles and Knights won yesterday, Dave and Kevin will be happy
06:59:27 <Go STEAMBOAT> SC
07:09:22 <Betty> OF
07:25:34 <ynpvisitor99> YVO updated. Looks like no water yet to SB. Could be a "longer" interval again. Not that 6 days is long.
07:27:04 <Go STEAMBOAT> thanks 99
07:27:18 <JarnoO> morning all
07:27:24 <JarnoO> finally a logger update
07:29:09 <ynpvisitor99> I was happy o see it update. Seems likem the last few the conncetion has been re established only to have it fail immediately
07:29:24 <Go STEAMBOAT> all depeds if SB goes on its first chance like it did 3 eruptions ago, as soon as it got water it erupted
07:29:27 <ynpvisitor61> 3C
07:31:08 <Go STEAMBOAT> assuming it gets water today it could go tomorrow
07:32:18 <ynpvisitor99> Could I suppose, but with the foul weather coming I'd be OK to not sit there tomorrow
07:37:07 <JarnoO> Dome
07:46:59 <Go STEAMBOAT> thanks jarnoO, I am heading out so not on Dome watch now
07:47:45 <JarnoO> cya Graham
07:48:53 <Go STEAMBOAT> high of 49 tomorrow is cool, chance of rain but not too high
07:49:28 <Go STEAMBOAT> i am guessing there will be people there as it will be at 4.5 days and the recent mean is just over 5

10:04:13 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Betty
10:14:03 <ynpvisitor76> It seems that OF is having a lot of shorts lately!
10:19:24 <Betty> nice Dome
10:22:43 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Jarno
10:22:51 <JarnoO> morning Forest, SF
10:23:20 <Forestbewithyou> Oh how I want to be there right now...
10:23:47 <Forestbewithyou> I think bulger is a major
11:02:10 <JarnoO> Grand
11:02:34 <JarnoO> seems to be D1D0
11:02:54 <Forestbewithyou> so that is a double delay right
11:03:03 <JarnoO> yes
11:03:57 <JarnoO> last Turban before Grand was some 28 minutes ago
11:04:07 <Forestbewithyou> Ah
11:04:30 <Forestbewithyou> I just opened my notebook to write something... It smells like sunscreen :)
11:05:02 <Michael> OF time. Hope it goes before the second burst.
11:10:24 <Michael> OF ie
11:10:41 <Forestbewithyou> Whoops
11:10:44 <Forestbewithyou> LOL
11:12:25 <Michael> Sure wish it had picked a different time.
11:15:16 <JarnoO> D1D0/G2Q | 10m28s
11:18:37 <Michael> I'll bet we get Beehive in about 90 minutes too.
11:42:23 <JarnoO> found some gold :)

12:05:47 <Betty> Daisy
12:06:15 <Betty> hi Craig M
12:07:25 <JarnoO> morning Craig M
12:07:33 <Craig M> Hello!
12:21:20 <JarnoO> water is back at Steamboat per notes
12:54:14 <Betty> afternoon woody Kevin
12:54:29 <Betty> OF
12:55:47 <JarnoO> afternoon Kevin
12:56:06 <Kevin L™️ > Hi
12:56:42 <Kevin L™️ > Cedar City tonight.
13:41:56 <JarnoO> hi Graham
13:42:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello. did I miss anything?
13:43:42 <JarnoO> not really. Loads of Domes, though
13:44:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice, it is like Vault only better
13:45:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like you have all the eruptions, nice to see the intervals slowly increase
13:49:33 <ynpvisitor99> Vault (except 98) means Giantess. So you still think Dome is better? Just curious.
13:55:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> better in that it has more frequent eruptions in the series and can last longer
13:55:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> the view of Vault is better
14:03:08 <KorbenC> That was a really nice 17 mile walk :)
14:05:05 <KorbenC> afternoon all :)
14:06:19 <KorbenC> Hi Linda

14:32:59 <Jeff> I didn't even get up to the hill lol
14:33:25 <LindaG> 😊
14:33:26 <Jeff> It was cool watching the bursts then both hearing it and feeling it a couple seconds later

15:14:39 <Forestbewithyou> Hi all
15:15:41 <SantaFe108 mobi> how's it going
15:15:41 <Forestbewithyou> Hi SF
15:15:49 <SantaFe108 mobi> hello forest
15:16:18 <ynpvisitor71> Pretty quiet, post Bee...
15:16:51 <JarnoO> hi Forest, SF
15:17:42 <Forestbewithyou> Hey Jarno
15:20:05 <SantaFe108 mobi> hi jarno
15:20:19 <Forestbewithyou> Wow I didn't realize Labor day was so late
15:20:37 <Forestbewithyou> I for some reason thought it was tomorrow
15:21:50 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
15:22:01 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Betty
15:22:19 <SantaFe108 mobi> Night betty
15:22:49 <ynpvisitor71> Labor Day's always first Monday in Sept, so late as can be this year
15:23:35 <Forestbewithyou> Thank You 71. I guess I thought tomorrow was September 1st
15:23:55 <Forestbewithyou> I guess that means 1 more week of summer!
15:31:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> fluffy window?
15:36:47 <JarnoO> OF static
15:37:26 <JarnoO> so far OF's been behaving much like it did in the 90s, with the occasional double long
15:38:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> ?
15:39:25 <JarnoO> long-long-short-long-short-long-short-long-long-short-long
15:52:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh ok. i know once it has a short it can alternate ... not sure how often it does the double long
15:54:58 <JarnoO> in the last 2 or 3 years before shorts became the exception rather than the rule, those double longs became more and more common. Probably natural variation though
15:56:05 <SantaFe108 mobi> is Kevin l here
15:57:24 <ynpvisitor76> Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
15:57:26 <LindaG> Dont see his cactus unless hes lurking😊
15:57:32 <LindaG> U there he is
15:58:17 <SantaFe108 mobi> hello kevin, I layed track yesterday
15:58:25 <LindaG> Hi Christmas Kevin
15:58:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> have you left cactus land Kevin?
15:58:54 <Forestbewithyou> I must say SF I think you summoned Kevin
15:59:18 <Kevin L™️ > That is the closest thing I could find to a cedar
15:59:25 <KorbenC> Hi Kevin, FOrest, SF.
15:59:30 <KorbenC> Sorry, I fell asleep :P
15:59:32 <Forestbewithyou> Hey Korben
15:59:38 <Forestbewithyou> Not surprised :)
15:59:39 <SantaFe108 mobi> Hi korben
15:59:44 <LindaG> Why cedar?
16:00:31 <Kevin L™️ > I saw your picture SantaFe. Ties are heavy, aren’t they?
16:00:43 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, when you starting your drive?
16:00:56 <Kevin L™️ > I am in Cedar City
16:00:58 <SantaFe108 mobi> LindaG, quite heavy indeed
16:01:03 <SantaFe108 mobi> Oops Kevin L™️ 🌲,
16:02:00 <Kevin L™️ > Now you know why all those old guys wanted some young guys
16:02:50 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, they said "we're glad we got young guys like you who can hit spikes like a motherf*cker"
16:02:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> flying this time on Sat. i have a mask and face shield
16:03:21 <Kevin L™️ > I assume that was 90 pound rail.
16:05:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> 2.5 day drive eac way is too much for a repeat this soon
16:05:52 <KorbenC> where are you going this time SF?
16:06:33 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, oh someone said you were driving but originally thought you were flying
16:06:52 <SantaFe108 mobi> KorbenC, wdym?
16:07:14 <KorbenC> SantaFe108 mobile 2, I thought you were on a train ride :)
16:07:15 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, I didn't get to check what rail it was, had to work
16:07:31 <SantaFe108 mobi> KorbenC, yesterday I was laying new track for the museum
16:07:39 <KorbenC> SantaFe108 mobile 2, :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
16:07:46 <ynpvisitor71> Graham, will be interested to hear your perspective on flying for your trip. Are you coming to Bozeman?
16:07:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> idrove june/july but I was vsiting my sister in Denver too
16:07:59 <LindaG> And now he cant walk 😉
16:08:22 <KorbenC> LindaG, hey, he can join the club :P
16:08:25 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, I remember you told you bought shield for plane
16:08:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> it oesnt looklike the flight risk is as big as originally thought, but I added the plastic face shield to protect me too, as well as the required mask
16:08:49 <LindaG> Cant hurt
16:08:50 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, all of our track components are hand me downs from replaced tracj
16:08:55 <KorbenC> I tried getting up from my nap, it wasnt fun :P
16:08:57 <Kevin L™️ > Most museums use 90# since the railroads removed a lot of it. They use 133# now
16:09:20 <LindaG> KorbenC, take a nice warm bath
16:09:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeh, the airplane filters clean out the air fairly quickly ... or so the reports say
16:09:26 <LindaG> Or hot realky
16:09:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> did yor 17 mile run hurt Korben?
16:10:05 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, wish I was brave enough, but I'll wait
16:10:25 <KorbenC> GS, it was a 17 mile walk, it was fun, but I am a bit tired now.
16:10:54 <KorbenC> I also only got 5 or so hours of sleep last night, not my normal 7.5
16:10:57 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, the tie plates we used still had the Santa Fe markings on them
16:11:50 <KorbenC> I enjoyed it, my German shepherd enjoyed it, my dad meh :)
16:11:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah its a hard call. i have been iolating at home, have no compliating factors, and nobody that i will risk sharing it with
16:12:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> i just have to avoid the crowds in the park, but I know how to do that
16:12:42 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, yeah that's my problem my husband I dont think would deal well with it
16:13:20 <Kevin L™️ > Cool! If you look at rail it has the weight (per yard) and month and year it was made.
16:13:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope theres a vaccine for next years trips
16:14:29 <Kevin L™️ > Hope it isn’t made in China Graham.
16:14:52 <LindaG> Yes, a carefully tested vaccine
16:14:53 <SantaFe108 mobi> KorbenC, I did some hiking today
16:15:05 <KorbenC> SantaFe108 mobile 2, nice
16:15:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> a lot of medications are made in asia
16:15:46 <SantaFe108 mobi> KorbenC, super tired from last nights work though, so it was a struggle
16:15:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope its made somewhere, anywhere, and is tested ad proven to work before i have it
16:16:13 <LindaG> 😊
16:16:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> the talk about shortcuts is du=isturbing
16:16:51 <LindaG> Sure is
16:16:57 <KorbenC> SF, at least it sounds like oyu enjoyed it
16:17:07 <LindaG> I've never even taken the flu vaccine
16:17:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> also dnt like hearing that people are getting it a second time, so immunity may not last long
16:17:37 <KorbenC> LindaG, you gonna get a COVID vaccine, if there is one that is
16:18:07 <LindaG> Yup, I guess
16:18:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> i always take that Flu vaccine, you should too Linda unless you have a specific allergy to egg products
16:18:18 <SantaFe108 mobi> KorbenC, when we got to the top thats where the rock climbing began to the top of a granite outcropping 80ft tall and I just sat down and rested
16:18:21 <KorbenC> GS, it is a virus, there are multiple strains already and from millions of people, its no suprise :)
16:18:41 <LindaG> I know maybe this winter
16:18:41 <KorbenC> SF, at least I was already at 9Kft for my hike :)
16:19:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> well i think the medical communicity is surprised that peoples immunity doesnt last as long, but agree it can change which makes vaccines harder too
16:19:18 <Craig M> I'm a pharmacy tech at walgreens and it *sounds* like we're expecting to get ahold of the vaccine in december
16:19:49 <SantaFe108 mobi> KorbenC, was around 7.5k ft up
16:19:59 <KorbenC> nice
16:20:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah CaigM ... but what shortcuts will they take? Its hard to get really good immunity and dosing info without a longer study
16:20:23 <SantaFe108 mobi> By Big Bear Lake
16:20:36 <KorbenC> if you ever come to CO you should come for a hike with me, ive got a mountain by my house starts at 7.5K ft, and ends at about 11.
16:20:54 <KorbenC> or you could go climb pikes peak, tourists love to try and fail at that :P
16:21:00 <Craig M> If it passes phase III it is regarded as safe in that it won't kill you
16:21:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think my hike elevation was 200 eet today?
16:21:12 <Craig M> whether it works or not is a whole other question
16:21:34 <KorbenC> makes sense Craig
16:21:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> well yes ... but that doesnt mean it works ......
16:21:54 <Craig M> It has data that proves that it does have an effect
16:22:35 <Craig M> otherwise they would not be trying to move this vaccine through phase III.
16:22:55 <SantaFe108 mobi> KorbenC, I'm not too far away from the PCT either, it runs along the San Bernardino mountains here
16:23:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> well, that data usually takes tme ... maybe it works for the forst nth or two .... they havent been doing the trials for long. maybe you need 2 or 3 doses for it to actualy work for longer?
16:23:23 <KorbenC> have you ever done a 14er SF?
16:23:37 <Craig M> however, is that not better than nothing?
16:23:52 <Kevin L™️ > Doesn’t look like many changes on the hill today.
16:23:54 <SantaFe108 mobi> KorbenC, no
16:23:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> but i hope theres really good results, i want to be optimistic o our chances, but am very worried that it will be rushed for political reasons
16:24:10 <SantaFe108 mobi> KorbenC, I don't do much hiking anyway since hiking in California is misery
16:24:17 <Craig M> Oh i agree with you there. The rushing and trampling over the FDA is disgusting
16:24:36 <KorbenC> lol Bryce
16:25:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> the medical community that i trust that understands infectious disesases isnt touting a quick fix thati know of
16:25:35 <Kevin L™️ > You haven’t done any Death Valley hikes SantaFe?
16:25:43 <Craig M> In reality we just don't know
16:25:51 <SantaFe108 mobi> KorbenC, the highest mountain in Socal is san gorgon at around 11.5k feet
16:26:06 <KorbenC> SantaFe108 mobile 2, you should go run the running under the sun race ;)
16:26:49 <KorbenC> Bryce, aka the badwater 135 :)
16:27:31 <SantaFe108 mobi> anything involving Badwater is misery for me :p
16:27:50 <Kevin L™️ > T Scott also wrote a book about Death Valley.
16:28:19 <SantaFe108 mobi> It's hot enough in the coastal desert :(
16:29:47 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, I've camped in some random canyon in death valley one time, can't remember
16:32:29 <Kevin L™️ > Funny thing is that Death Valley is only about 100 miles from Mt Whitney.
16:34:28 <SantaFe108 mobi> high and low
16:35:10 <LindaG> Kevin L™️ 🌲, lots of hummingbirds zipping around yard today, it cooled off a bit
16:35:44 <ynpvisitor101> Turban:thumbsup:
16:36:05 <Kevin L™️ > Check the museum for some of the old abandoned railroads SantaFe. Learn about them then hike the old road beds.
16:36:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice to see such a bue sky and no smoke
16:36:48 <Kevin L™️ > There was even a monorail near Death Valley!
16:36:49 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, I have to go back to the construction site to get my water bottle anyway
16:38:15 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, I think today they are doing mainline repairs, FRA inspected some track and was not particularly happy
16:39:48 <Kevin L™️ > I understand that! This is a good book:
16:39:54 <Kevin L™️ >
16:40:14 <Kevin L™️ > The whole set is wonderful
16:41:00 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, looks nice
16:41:28 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, I think the issue was some ties on the mainline rotted through and need replacement
16:42:14 <Kevin L™️ > A bit east of you but has a lot of information around you. Probably a copy at your museum.
16:43:04 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, we have stuff from all over so it probably has some stuff we have in it
16:43:32 <Kevin L™️ > I know we derailed a Santa train once.
16:44:53 <SantaFe108 mobi> elaborate please
16:45:12 <Kevin L™️ > They got the F40 at our museum to start. It was the one painted in daylight colors.
16:45:20 <SantaFe108 mobi> A santa fe train or a santa holiday excursion?
16:46:50 <Kevin L™️ > It was the Christmas train. It picked a switch, luckily before it was loaded. When I get home I have some pictures.
16:51:21 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, Jeezy, usually Christmas trains are quite busy too
16:51:26 <SantaFe108 mobi> Jeeze*
16:52:58 <KorbenC> Jarno, Atlanic Invest's (1) 0/30, (2) 0/20, (3) 70/80, (4) 60/70. Pacific, Post Tropical Iselle and (1) 10/20. CPAC 0/10
16:54:06 <JarnoO> activity in all basins, with Atlantic peaking above them all
16:54:45 <Kevin L™️ > It was sold out but they were able to adjust and got it back on the rails for the 2nd run.
16:55:14 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, good!
16:55:49 <SantaFe108 mobi> I think our most popular excursion is either Polar Express or Day Out With Thomas
17:00:14 <Kevin L™️ > They do a train similar to Polar Express but we do our own presentation. Saves a ton of money.
17:01:09 <Kevin L™️ > They do a storybook train the 3rd week of the month.
17:01:46 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, 3rd week of the month here is steam day (excluding summer)
17:01:54 <SantaFe108 mobi> 3rd weekend*
17:07:11 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, oh by the way, last night when we were building
17:07:28 <SantaFe108 mobi> someone hammered the spikes in the wrong slots for like 20 ft
17:07:28 <Kevin L™️ > I will keep that in mind. My brother really wants to go with me.
17:08:01 <Kevin L™️ > Ugh. Pull,
17:08:20 <Kevin L™️ > Pulling spikes is a pain
17:09:11 <SantaFe108 mobi> We just let it go, the track we made is just going to have cars sitting for a while and the director wasn't too worried
17:09:40 <SantaFe108 mobi> The crew before us built 39 feet of track diagonally on accident because they were tired, so we had to drag it into place
17:12:06 <Kevin L™️ > Do you know why rail is 39 feet long?
17:13:37 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, no, why?
17:15:53 <JarnoO> a Grand
17:16:28 <Kevin L™️ > Back then the common length of a train car was 40 feet. 39 foot rail fit in a 40 foot gondola car.
17:19:39 <SantaFe108 mobi> Kevin L™️ 🌲, that makes sense, thanks
17:24:36 <KorbenC> Kevin, make sure to say hi to cb for me if you see her in UGB
17:24:44 <Forestbewithyou> ^^^
17:24:55 <JarnoO> G2*C | 11m22s. 2nd 2m22s
17:24:58 <Forestbewithyou> I second that movement
17:25:11 <KorbenC> OF
17:25:53 <KorbenC> OF trying to turn into a Daisy
17:26:11 <SantaFe108 mobi> I forgot Kevin was in ynp
17:26:14 <ynpvisitor101> OF sat on the entire Grand
17:26:16 <SantaFe108 mobi> :D
17:26:32 <JarnoO> quite surprising V&T continued after that long 2nd burst. Good nonethelees
17:26:37 <JarnoO> nonetheless*
17:27:41 <ynpvisitor101> Shorrt
17:27:46 <JarnoO> oh... No more water above the surface
17:29:08 <LindaG> SantaFe108 mobile 2, I dont think hes there yet
17:30:01 <SantaFe108 mobi> LindaG, oh ok
17:30:21 <ynpvisitor99> "16:00:56 ‹Kevin L™️ �› I am in Cedar City "
17:31:20 <KorbenC> JO, OF going back into Short Long alternating phase?
17:32:59 <JarnoO> Korben, I wouldn't put my money on that, but I do have to say that shorts have become fairly common in the last few months
17:35:22 <ynpvisitor99> Arty
17:36:37 <ynpvisitor99> per GT
17:38:07 <KorbenC> JarnoO, result of that quake?
17:38:42 <JarnoO> which quake?
17:38:54 <KorbenC> delayed ID response
17:38:58 <KorbenC> its possible :)
17:39:36 <JarnoO> don't think so. I think you have to look at an earlier date, think perhaps around June or July
17:39:47 <JarnoO> maybe early-mid August
17:40:00 <JarnoO> (and don't think solely big quake, either)
17:40:59 <JarnoO> even a small quake can have big effects on OF, like that 2.2 EQ in January 1998 which woke Cascade up from dormancy but also caused OF to lose it's long-short pattern and lengthen intervals
17:58:15 <KorbenC> Aurum 1748
17:58:25 <KorbenC> we we on the hill at that time?
17:59:07 <KorbenC> nope, we were down basin :(
18:23:15 <ynpvisitor71> :daisy:
18:39:55 <LindaG> Back from dinner
18:40:05 <SantaFe108 mobi> welcome back

18:54:37 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, cc had alot of trouble with it
18:55:05 <ynpvisitor101> It's punishing me for missing Aurum :(
18:55:14 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, 😊
18:55:17 <KorbenC> when we get a cahnce can we zoom in again on Giantess?
18:56:19 <KorbenC> runoff very wet
18:56:23 <KorbenC> wonder if we have boils yet?
18:57:10 <LindaG> There she is
18:57:12 <KorbenC> nice not to have a huge gaping hole in the ground :)
18:57:54 <LindaG> Doeant look as blue as iit did before
18:59:07 <LindaG> Doesnt seem like water is as high as before eruption
19:00:14 <KorbenC> agreed

19:05:01 <Forestbewithyou> Awesome
19:05:14 <LindaG> Watching concert on pbs
19:05:44 <Forestbewithyou> I am going to be real honest.. Thats the only song I know by Neil Diamond
19:06:22 <LindaG> Forestbewithyou, that's ok, I'm surprised you know that one
19:07:42 <Forestbewithyou> Well at the homecoming assembly the band plays it each year as one of the songs
19:07:46 <Forestbewithyou> at my school
19:07:56 <ynpvisitor100> Look up “You’ So sweet” forest.
19:08:15 <Forestbewithyou> I will in a bit
19:09:16 <ynpvisitor100> Do the one on the Sweet Caroline album.
19:09:46 <LindaG> ynpvisitor100, I never heard that song
19:10:26 <KorbenC> I fell asleep again ;)
19:10:36 <KorbenC> Linda, who's Neil Diamond? :P
19:10:39 <ynpvisitor100> I love it. Check out his version of Hanky Panky too.
19:10:45 <Forestbewithyou> Is Eric here
19:10:50 <Forestbewithyou> I think we need to kick Korben
19:10:53 <Forestbewithyou> LMAO
19:10:53 <LindaG> KorbenC, 😋😄
19:11:10 <Forestbewithyou> Korben to answer your question... He is a person
19:12:01 <LindaG> Haha he looks a bit different in this concert, like 40 yrs different
19:12:02 <KorbenC> are we sure Eric? Elvis and Neil could be aliens! ;)
19:12:08 <KorbenC> are we sure Forest**
19:12:22 <Forestbewithyou> Eric??? Where is Eric???
19:13:12 <Forestbewithyou> Korben I think you may need some serious sleep if you are getting Eric and me mixed up
19:13:35 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, how r u tonight?
19:13:58 <ynpvisitor101> Still awake
19:14:02 <KorbenC> Forest, dont worry, im going to bed in 47 minutes, I do have school tommorow too
19:14:08 <KorbenC> is 101 Joe or Dave?
19:14:22 <ynpvisitor101> Neither
19:14:23 <Forestbewithyou> I think you need to go to bed sooner than that KorbenC
19:14:42 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, 😊 thats good. Did you get to watch some of giantess?
19:14:53 <KorbenC> Hi Craig
19:15:01 <ynpvisitor101> I was here from the start
19:15:06 <KorbenC> wait, not Craig
19:15:11 <KorbenC> Hi Jeff?
19:15:40 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, that's great lot of people on that morning
19:15:57 <ynpvisitor101> Giantess was fun. Been a long time
19:16:15 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, did you ever see in person?
19:16:37 <ynpvisitor101> Yes, I did a walk up
19:16:47 <LindaG> Oh nice
19:17:16 <LindaG> Was it bigger than this one?
19:17:51 <LindaG> People have commented they didnt think it was as big as past ones
19:18:18 <ynpvisitor101> Water came out and gravel started rolling down hill. I said to MA is this normal? and she said NO this is not normal :)
19:18:35 <ynpvisitor101> I don't remember it as being bigger.
19:18:56 <LindaG> 😊
19:19:52 <Forestbewithyou> well I think I may get going. I am tired and need to start getting on a schedule
19:20:10 <LindaG> Jeff said he felt the thumping down at lower ham
19:20:18 <LindaG> Forestbewithyou, goodnight
19:20:52 <LindaG> Forestbewithyou, yeah no more frivolity
19:21:45 <JarnoO> it probably doesn't help that the cam is up high on the Inn. I reckon it would've looked taller from the tree cam
19:23:04 <LindaG> JarnoO, true. I tried to show the people so you could tell how tall it really was, mlm it's so deceiving
19:27:25 <KorbenC> Im gonna head out! Night all!
19:27:42 <LindaG> KorbenC, night
19:30:10 <JarnoO> I'm off as well. Enjoy Grotto marathoning the day away
19:30:24 <LindaG> JarnoO, night
19:41:55 <ynpvisitor101> Days are getting shorter.
19:43:40 <LindaG> Yeah not that long ago it was still light at 9 MDT
19:44:30 <LindaG> Winters comin
19:44:31 <ynpvisitor101> Not ready for winter but am ready for fall......and a vaccine :)
19:44:50 <LindaG> Me too
19:44:58 <LindaG> A shame winter fa
19:45:11 <LindaG> *follows
19:46:28 <ynpvisitor101> I was really looking forward to the election but realized that the day after the 2022 midterm election starts:thumbsdown: :(
19:47:43 <LindaG> 😕
19:54:01 <ynpvisitor101> A nice socially distanced evening crowd. I wish i was with them.
19:54:58 <LindaG> 😊 it would be nice
19:56:23 <LindaG> I dont have reservations till next june
19:56:39 <LindaG> 😕
19:57:21 <ynpvisitor101> I would tell you about my last visit but would start to cry :(
19:58:08 <LindaG> It was that good? Or bad?
19:58:19 <LindaG> Hey kevin
19:59:58 <ynpvisitor101> Forgot pass, $35. Checked in to nice new Lodge cabin, 3 nights $600. Got ready for bed and realized I had left all my medications home. Did not sleep. Drove home at first light.
20:00:27 <LindaG> Oh bummer
20:00:35 <Kevin L™️ > Ugh.
20:00:53 <ynpvisitor101> Always something :)
20:01:42 <LindaG> Kevin L™️ 🌲, are you on your way to,park?
20:01:43 <Kevin L™️ > I went out to see daughter’s new house. It is coming along well.
20:02:01 <LindaG> Good
20:02:32 <ynpvisitor101> Moved in before first snow!
20:03:00 <Kevin L™️ > That is what they are hoping.
20:07:46 <ynpvisitor71> Maybe a nice sunset Great Fountain tonight.
20:08:19 <ynpvisitor101> GF made for sunsets
20:08:33 <ynpvisitor71> :thumbsup:
20:10:59 <Kevin L™️ > I like GF at sunset
20:16:51 <ynpvisitor101> Another short - I had 2014 start
20:23:50 <ynpvisitor101> Daisy 2023 wc
20:25:12 <Siegmund> Just like the 90s to have long-long-short long-short long-short type patterns. Was beginning to wonder if we'd ever see that again.
20:25:56 <ynpvisitor101> Fun to mix them up like this
20:27:43 <ynpvisitor101> Night. Controls released. I think Fluff next so will leave cam there
20:28:22 <LindaG> ynpvisitor101, night
