08:28:19 <Eric> BH is due
08:28:30 <LindaGp> Daisy soon
08:29:08 <KorbenC> Great, storm models are different for my house, one says 5 inches, one says 9 inches, and one says 16 inches :P
08:29:09 <Dave from B™> There might be water in Craig's boat:)
08:29:11 <Eric> daisy within the next 2h :-D
08:29:18 <Eric> ouch
08:29:19 <CraigC> lol
08:29:19 <KorbenC> Eric, maybe*
08:29:33 <KorbenC> Dave, lol
08:29:50 <Eric> High probability.
08:29:59 <Eric> That looks dead
08:30:00 <LindaGp> It'll be a while for bee I think
08:30:15 <Eric> wonder if we missed it overnight
08:33:45 <LindaGp> Bulger ie
08:35:28 <Eric> Nice to see Sholly is putting so much emphasis on making his staff feel safe and comfortable at their jobs. That is how you lead.
08:36:05 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
08:36:29 <Eric> I love that they are dumping those trailers for employees and getting them real homes.
08:37:05 <Dave from B™> I hope he is at YNP for many years
08:37:05 <LindaGp> Dome
08:39:00 <Eric> He is laying the groundwork to attract good talent to his crew, hopefully people who stick around the park.
08:52:06 <LindaGp> I think daisy in next 10.min
08:55:15 <Forestbewithyou> I have to head out. bbl and good luck with daisy
08:56:21 <LindaGp> Forestbewithyou, bye
08:56:46 <Eric> For sure in the next 1.5h :-P
08:57:20 <LindaGp> Just about to go 19 hrs
08:58:30 <LindaGp> Lol
09:02:18 <LindaGp> Well doesn't matter cause OF is due
09:03:06 <Dave from B™> How long is William staying in the park?
09:04:56 <CraigC> want me to ask him?
09:07:03 <Eric> Until they kick him out :-P
09:07:20 <Dave from B™> haha
09:07:27 <Dave from B™> I figured
09:07:54 <CraigC> they have tried many times
09:08:17 <LindaGp> OF
09:09:30 <Katie> Hi all
09:09:43 <LindaGp> Katie, hi
09:11:37 <Eric> That or hire him on in the park :-D
09:11:50 <Eric> He needs to get his way into a year round park job :-D
09:31:39 <Rice> Dave from B™, my forklift accident is finally sorted out, didn't end well for the accused.
09:31:54 <Dave from B™> 6-9" of Kevin's favorite stuff coming tonight and tomorrow...then -2 this weekend....Linda, you sure you don't want top move here?:)
09:32:17 <Dave from B™> Rice, was it a DUI?
09:32:27 <LindaGp> 🙄 I'll think about it
09:32:33 <Rice> Dave from B™, Yup
09:32:43 <Dave from B™> That's too bad
09:32:58 <Dave from B™> I'm assuming OSHA was involved
09:33:05 <LindaGp> Like to watch it fall
09:33:12 <Rice> yea it is, I hate that part of my job.
09:33:34 <Rice> Thankfully, Osha was not.
09:33:36 <Dave from B™> Yep.....hopefully, company doesn't get fined
09:33:53 <Dave from B™> good news. They are worst than the IRS at your door
09:34:04 <Dave from B™> worse*
09:34:23 <Rice> FDA scares me just as much.
09:35:03 <Eric> OSHA should be there to help you keep your employees safe.
09:35:19 <Eric> Not advisaries
09:35:21 <Rice> Do you get FDA Inspections, or just Local Health Department?
09:36:45 <Dave from B™> We get along with FDA very well. But, it is a lot of work to keep them happy.
09:36:59 <Dave from B™> FDA every 2 years and county every 6 months
09:37:41 <Dave from B™> I've only seen OSHA one time in 16 years
09:38:01 <Eric> I know our OSHA in Oregon was really easy to get along with. They would come in and provide actual services and advise on getting your business safer.
09:38:23 <Eric> More proactive outreach.
09:38:34 <Eric> Then punish you until you comply.
09:38:46 <Dave from B™> That's the way it should be. The key is to show respect to FDA and other agenices. It makes life much easier than being confrontational.
09:39:09 <LindaGp> Dome ie
09:39:13 <Eric> Dome?
09:39:27 <Eric> oh ya, we are in series already
09:42:45 <LindaGp> Yay daisy
09:43:41 <LindaGp> And I was only off by 42 minutes :p:p
09:44:56 <Eric> Hey I was right! :-P
09:45:39 <Dave from B™> 2 hour windows for Daisy ARE NOT ALLOWED
09:45:49 <Eric> haha :-P
09:46:03 <Dave from B™> That is like a 7 day window for SB
09:46:13 <ynpvisitor18> Splendid really is the last of the titans to not reactivate in the past several years. Wild
09:46:16 <Mike J> So I can't claim a 100% success rate for saying Daisy will go off today?
09:46:23 <Eric> Well, when you have missed 9 daisys in a row!
09:46:38 <Dave from B™> True, that does make prediction tougher
09:46:41 <LindaGp>
09:46:50 <Dave from B™> Mike J, you can if you want:)
09:47:07 <Mike J> Daisy and I don't get along. I've told it before, but she's the reason I missed a Fan & Mortar.
09:47:17 <Eric> That wasn't always true right? Daisy broke for a while
09:48:01 <Mike J> True Eric. It seems everything "breaks" at some time or the other.
09:48:32 <ynpvisitor18> That tends to happen when a feature relies on instability to even exist hahaha.
09:49:04 <ynpvisitor18> stability and equilibrium is boring, that gives us Hot Springs.
09:49:20 <Mike J> "Relying on Instability to Exist" Thanks. I've been looking for the title of my autobiography
09:49:30 <ynpvisitor18> HA
09:50:13 <Dave from B™> haha
09:51:12 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, I expect my own snow this winter
09:51:53 <Dave from B™> Snow is much better in quantity:)
09:52:24 <ynpvisitor18> Supposed to be a pretty heavy snow year from what I hear.
09:52:38 <ynpvisitor18> At least in the Northcentral/Northwestern States
09:52:40 <Eric> I agree with that Dave
09:53:37 <LindaGp> I like snow but don't want to shovel it
09:53:48 <LindaGp> Or plow it
09:54:08 <LindaGp> My development does that
09:54:40 <LindaGp> Mug
09:55:31 <Dave from B™> I usually just leave it since no one walks on our sidewalk
09:59:18 <LindaGp> Pump!
10:00:12 <LindaGp> Thought I'd set it up for kevin 😊
10:00:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
10:00:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There is the Perry Mason music
10:00:55 <LindaGp> 😊 it's all yours
10:01:06 <LindaGp> Controls released
10:02:44 <LindaG> Lake looks cool and electric peak is pretty
10:04:05 <LindaG> Some kind of front coming in over lake, but I cant say c**d
10:05:06 <Eric> Those are some tiny booths at the North Entrance!
10:07:04 <LindaG> Bbl
10:07:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Birding?
10:07:58 <Dave from B™> haha Linda
10:25:04 <Eric> To go along with my daisy prediction, I predict Giantess in the next 8 years :-D
10:26:35 <Dave from B™> haha. Do I get paid interest if I win the bet?
10:27:00 <Eric> What is the bet?
10:28:23 <Dave from B™> Giantess in the next 8 years
10:29:16 <Dave from B™> I'm gonna need about 1 million to 1 odds
10:31:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Make him pay off in fish Eric
10:32:57 <Eric> 6 to 1 odds :-D My bet is a can of beer :-D
10:33:13 <Eric> You get a WHOLE 6 pack if it doesn't erupt!
10:33:54 <Eric> You owe me a good Montana beer if it does :-D Win Win
10:34:58 <Dave from B™> haha. I'll pass and you will get that beer next time you make it this direction:)
10:36:18 <Eric> :-P
10:38:56 <Dave from B™> If you said 8 weeks, I might think about it:D
10:45:38 <Eric> OF ie
10:46:59 <...> Where is JO and KC to enter it?
10:47:57 <Dave from B™> Maybe, they have a snow day
10:59:14 <Eric> Aurum looks hot
10:59:37 <Eric> But so hard to tell with doublet pushing steam everywhere
10:59:51 <Eric> oh wow...big aurum push
10:59:57 <Eric> definitely ready :-D
11:00:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It did have a big splash
11:06:14 <Betty> hi all
11:06:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi

11:09:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
11:09:34 <Dave from B™> Why are we staring at Pump?:D
11:10:12 <Betty> hi Dave from B™, because it could erupt any second!
11:26:19 <Rich> I blinked. Guess I will wait for the next Pump.:)
11:27:38 <Dave from B™> Rich, you sure you have that much time?:)
11:27:40 <Zoom> Uh almost
11:27:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Aurum looked as big as pump but didn't go
11:28:41 <LindaG> Betty, hi

11:34:28 <LindaG> 🙂
11:34:56 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Betty
11:34:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BH is teasing too.
11:34:56 <Betty> Micah rocks! And thanks to DaveM
11:34:57 <LindaG> Problem is Kevin needs to feed chickens
11:36:00 <Betty> hi Forestbewithyou
11:36:27 <...> Yes, Micah is truly awesome
11:36:45 <Betty> hi ... (Kent?)

11:37:17 <Betty> Korben
11:37:33 <Rich> Dave from B, whT are paper clips and clothes pins?
11:37:33 <Forestbewithyou> I saw that one coming :)
11:37:41 <KorbenC> I had good cover I see, didnt mess up every word in the semtabve as usual :)
11:37:45 <KorbenC> sentance*
11:37:50 <Dave from B™> For keeping your eyes from blinking
11:38:09 <Forestbewithyou> How long did it take you to write those sentences Korben?
11:38:26 <KorbenC> Forestbewithyou, one hand about 15 seconds, eating icecream with the other
11:38:39 <Forestbewithyou> yum
11:38:40 <KorbenC> 25*
11:38:43 <Betty> you robbed the 3 dots from Kent :-p
11:38:50 <KorbenC> Betty, haha :P
11:38:54 <Rich> whar are they, must be from before my time
11:39:01 <KorbenC> hey Rich
11:39:11 <Dave from B™> haha Rich
11:39:46 <Rich> Hi KorbenC, out of school fornthe day?
11:39:50 <Dave from B™> Congrats to Micah. And, like Betty said, DaveM has spent countless hours helping gazers. A heartfelt thanks for all his efforts.
11:40:33 <KorbenC> Rich, not yet, on lunch break.
11:40:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> DaveM has really been great. Did an awesome job.
11:41:07 <KorbenC> https://imgur.com/a/ZknArd3 - For Jarno if he is anonymous, FOrest might like it too. Its my live view of Epsilon :D
11:41:14 <Rich> ah!
11:41:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Time for Aurum and a no Indy BH
11:41:53 <LindaG> Korben is a dobber
11:42:07 <KorbenC> LindaG, define Dobber please?
11:42:16 <LindaG> Dot robber
11:42:16 <Rich> i'm hoping for a Plume series.
11:42:23 <Forestbewithyou> :)
11:42:26 <KorbenC> "dobber (plural dobbers) A type of thick marker pen used to mark a bingo card. quotations " I guess I am a Pen!
11:42:51 <LindaG> 🙂
11:42:56 <Forestbewithyou> Interesting
11:43:02 <KorbenC> I just find it neat that it is taking air in all the way from the Sahara, and it is still next too Bremuda.
11:43:49 <Forestbewithyou> It is cool. I actually have a satellite image up on my computer as well
11:43:50 <LindaG> Neat
11:44:20 <Betty> I´d buy that, Rich ! Miss that evil little thing
11:44:20 <LindaG> Lunchtime
11:44:42 <KorbenC> neat to weather people Linda, all of you not weather people are probably going "OK, its a hurricane. :P"
11:45:04 <Penta> Epsilon 95kt (+15kt) per special advisory. And I realize I'm blowing my cover here
11:45:17 <KorbenC> I knew yo were here JO.
11:45:27 <Rich> Betty, I've been waitingyears
11:46:03 <KorbenC> Jarno, yup, eyewall is exploding right now, you might be able to see that in the screenshot but IDK
11:46:37 <Betty> Dome ie
11:47:54 <JarnoO> to be fair, Epsilon looks more like a very powerful extratropical system than a tropical one, with that distinct comma shape it has
11:48:04 <KorbenC> I think its just going to be a short stint of strenthening and will start to deteriorate soon, but then again, its Epsilon, Epsilon is known to do whatever the heck it wants.
11:48:37 <JarnoO> how about an annular Epsilon?
11:48:40 <Forestbewithyou> well back to calculus
11:48:53 <KorbenC> Jarno, its still maintaining tropical characteristics, thx to the warmer air along the western edge of the eye.
11:49:15 <KorbenC> and there is still some warm air influx.
11:49:36 <JarnoO> I'm no storm expert. Just commenting on how it looks :)
11:49:59 <Betty> guess that´s William at Aurum
11:50:13 <KorbenC> neither am I, I am just saying what I see, I will leave actually detemining when its extra or still tropical to NHC.
11:53:06 <JarnoO> might be set at cat. 3 in a few hours or so. If that eyewall continues to explode I wouldn't be surprised if there are another 5 knots laying in its future
12:01:16 <Rich> Hi William.
12:02:18 <Rich> brb, time to put rice on for lunch
12:02:52 <Betty> poor Rice
12:04:27 <Betty> He´s going to be cooked :-p
12:04:33 <Dave from B™> hahaha
12:05:43 <Forestbewithyou> lol
12:08:20 <CraigC> LOL
12:08:31 <Rich> it is better than being half baked!
12:08:53 <Betty> hey CraigC
12:09:00 <CraigC> Betty, howdy
12:10:25 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Craig. Again :)
12:10:28 <Betty> now we will miss both Aurum and Daisy :-(
12:11:41 <CraigC> Forestbewithyou, hey again
12:11:46 <CraigC> just got back from mtn biking
12:12:36 <Dave from B™> Isn't it too cold for that?
12:13:08 <CraigC> heck no, it is still pretty nice here
12:17:32 <Betty> dome ie
12:19:18 <Betty> OF
12:28:04 <JarnoO> for what it's worth - Iceland had its fair share of earthquakes the last couple of weeks. If there still was a webcam there, I wonder if Geysir would put up a show again, robbing Steamboat from its title as largest active geyser in the world. It apparantly can reach over 500 feet (!)
12:31:14 <Lindagp> Oh aurum splash
12:31:46 <Lindagp> Hey jarno
12:33:31 <JarnoO> hi Linda
12:35:49 <Dave from B™> What is Aurum waiting for?
12:36:16 <LindaG> Chicken s
12:36:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Me to feed chickens
12:37:13 <LindaG> 🙂
12:37:28 <Dave from B™> Let 'em starve!
12:37:52 <LindaG> But aurum will never erupt
12:48:29 <JarnoO> Aurum
12:48:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Aurum
12:48:37 <Betty> woot
12:49:10 <Forestbewithyou> yay
12:50:04 <KorbenC> and Kevin didnt feed the chickens
12:50:06 <KorbenC> crazy/
12:50:23 <Forestbewithyou> thank gosh I decided I should look at the chat for a second :)
12:50:47 <KorbenC> JO, 1247
12:50:56 <KorbenC> or 12:48:00.
12:51:21 <KorbenC> but I would say 12:47:57
12:52:48 <KorbenC> William agrees, 1247.
12:56:14 <Dave from B™> Chickens are happy!!!
12:57:21 <Rich> back, guess I have to wait for rerun.
12:57:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had some older corn tortillas that were good for tacos. Chickens love them. When I go in the coop with them I almost get attacked.
12:57:43 <KorbenC> Rich, https://chat.geysertimes.org/dvr/ugb/download.php?f=ugbWebcamTime_10212020_125046.mp4

14:25:47 <still no snow> maybe snow now
14:25:56 <still no snow> about time
14:31:05 <still no snow> just a passing squall
14:33:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like Turban
14:41:59 <CC> Hello all
14:42:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ji
14:42:15 <JarnoO> afternoon CC
14:42:20 <Eric> Back for my afternoon BH :-P
14:42:28 <Eric> Hi CC, Kevin & Jarno
14:45:15 <Forestbewithyou> Hi CC and Eric
14:48:08 <Eric> Hi again Forest :-D
14:48:22 <KorbenC> :p
14:50:09 <JarnoO> Grand
14:50:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
14:50:35 <Eric> :-|
14:50:41 <Eric> :-O
14:50:44 <Forestbewithyou> yay
14:50:47 <Eric> 8-P
14:52:41 <time for someth> Must be crossed wires. They start the pumps for Grand, and the cam fails.
14:56:13 <Eric> 15mph winds probably don't help!
14:56:29 <Eric> and that is constant winds, I would assume gusts much higher
14:58:47 <JarnoO> b1 donbe
14:58:59 <JarnoO> probably will have a 2nd
14:59:04 <JarnoO> there it is
14:59:05 <KorbenC> 2nd
14:59:18 <Forestbewithyou> yay
15:00:08 <JarnoO> "Epsilon has continued to defy expectations..." Where have I heard that earlier?
15:00:10 <time for someth> Inn would have to be moving around a bunch to interrupt the signal, far away as the ranger station is.
15:00:28 <JarnoO> either way, major at 100kt
15:01:12 <KorbenC> Jarno, Epsilon 2005 :p
15:01:20 <JarnoO> :)
15:01:40 <KorbenC> Epsilon storms just really do not want to behave themeselves, darn hurrcanes are not doing what NOAA told them to do ;)
15:02:13 <JarnoO> Grand -2*-
15:02:19 <JarnoO> (so far)
15:02:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That one even got the controls
15:03:08 <JarnoO> b2 done
15:03:38 <JarnoO> not bad. About 14 minutes with a long second burst
15:04:09 <time for someth> Cactus, who knew Zion NP was such a good place to hide out. Think a bunch of bad guys will pick it for a hangout?
15:04:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think Butch Cassidy used it.
15:05:19 <KorbenC> is there a development with that fishy girl getting "lost" out there or something?
15:05:35 <time for someth> Splish splash, the bees are taking a bath.
15:06:11 <JarnoO> G2(*)Q | 13m01s (I can do math very well) with 2nd @ 9m04s
15:06:25 <JarnoO> G2( * )Q
15:06:33 <time for someth> Cooper, news at 11.
15:06:39 <JarnoO> stupid lightbulb
15:06:42 <KorbenC> do you have a link?
15:07:23 <time for someth> I have a circle
15:07:34 <KorbenC> is that a new association, or that it broke news at 11?
15:09:20 <time for someth> THere was a news story of speculation. Hard to get lost on the river. Daughter said she was almost done for and could not walk, yet rescuers said she walked out with little help.
15:09:37 <KorbenC> haha, thats odd :P
15:09:43 <time for someth> Also drinking that river water for 2 weeks woul dmake a normal person sick.
15:10:00 <KorbenC> maybe she is a superhuman, she is clearly good at lying :P
15:10:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is a murky river
15:10:13 <time for someth> But I am sure cactus knpws more about it then I do.
15:10:44 <time for someth> Well, I saw something, so time to go. Enjoy the steam.
15:17:17 <JarnoO> Lion
15:17:28 <JarnoO> steamdrift, that is
15:17:35 <KorbenC> Im still on Bee
15:17:36 <KorbenC> ah
15:17:41 <KorbenC> Steamdrifting LD
15:17:49 <KorbenC> there it is
15:29:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wow
15:29:07 <Forestbewithyou> bbl
15:29:16 <KorbenC> SQUALL
15:31:53 <JarnoO> faint rainbow
15:32:01 <JarnoO> just above OF
15:35:54 <still no snow> T -11 until no more tourists
15:36:36 <KorbenC> :(
15:36:36 <still no snow> T -4 until no services at all at OF
15:36:46 <KorbenC> more :(
15:37:06 <still no snow> :)
15:37:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have a stunning .5fps on controls now.
15:37:55 <KorbenC> Kevin, wow.
15:39:10 <still no snow> just in time
15:40:47 <Betty> headed out, night all
15:41:02 <JarnoO> cya Betty
15:41:05 <still no snow> where are you going?
15:41:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
15:41:56 <KorbenC> Bye Betty
15:50:32 <LindaG> Uh the pink banner
15:50:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> At least controls stayed up this time.
15:51:06 <Eric> Bye Betty
15:58:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No Graham yet?
16:05:47 <GO GIANTESS> i think he is here
16:06:11 <GO GIANTESS> i was doing that 4 letter word
16:06:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Controls released
16:06:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Funny, I am watching Maynard G Krebs right now.
16:13:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I did leave you BH
16:13:50 <GO GIANTESS> two lions so far, will we get a third?
16:18:53 <GO GIANTESS> roar
16:20:38 <GO GIANTESS> roar
16:24:59 <GO GIANTESS> roar
16:27:04 <GO GIANTESS> roar
16:53:19 <JarnoO> I have a little problem with estimating time I need to make something. I thought making a highly detailed image for that Steamboat article would take an hour. I spend about 5 hours on it...
16:53:27 <JarnoO> yay me
16:53:36 <JarnoO> but it does look nice
16:53:55 <KorbenC> JarnoO, ill look at it :)
16:54:19 <KorbenC> are you gonna plop it into the doc soon?
16:54:36 <JarnoO> it's not in the document yet. I type it out in a Word file and then place it in the shared document
16:54:41 <Eric> :-D Image content can be a serious time sink
16:54:46 <GO GIANTESS> what article is it for?
16:54:59 <JarnoO> indeed, especially when you're a kind of perfectionist...
16:55:03 <KorbenC> GO GIANTESS, Signal interpretation for seismos, temp graphs, tantulus, ect.
16:55:04 <Eric> The rock faces of steamboat?
16:55:26 <GO GIANTESS> for the Sput?
16:55:27 <Eric> Measuring steamboat height by using your pinky?
16:55:27 <KorbenC> and how not to entry false SB's
16:55:42 <Eric> Ohh, you should write that article Coop!
16:56:01 <GO GIANTESS> hahaEric, there should be an article on all the named features, an appendix to Wonderland Nomenclature
16:56:05 <KorbenC> Yes Eric, rule of pinky, "Rule One: Never use your pinky to measure SB height."
16:56:49 <Eric> Actually, you should write an article about about gazing as a kid. How it's different and your perspectives.
16:57:09 <KorbenC> haha, people dont want to hear about my persepctives :p
16:57:24 <Eric> Grumpy old people, having to sit too long, .....
16:57:32 <KorbenC> Ive got some good perspective of the influences of age based on what people think.
16:57:40 <JarnoO> typing everything out in a Word file does come with its advantages. Three pages next to each other is one of them, for example
16:57:49 <JarnoO> saves you scrolling
16:58:00 <KorbenC> yes JO, that empty space in the co isnt very nice.
16:58:30 <KorbenC> no idea what co was :P
16:58:47 <GO GIANTESS> guess i am supposed to write something for Pat to go in the SPut too
16:58:53 <Eric> snow
16:59:12 <Eric> lake has blue sky!
16:59:21 <JarnoO> deadline is Friday, FYI
16:59:24 <KorbenC> because there is certainly a "viewed" knowledge based on age.
16:59:39 <KorbenC> Thats for certain, SB tends to like younger people :D
16:59:57 <GO GIANTESS> yeah. my articles ae just rambly words, no real data in them
17:00:15 <Eric> That is not an age thing really, it's a butt in seat thing.
17:00:31 <KorbenC> you see, already controversial :P
17:00:33 <GO GIANTESS> if anyone has suggestions on style of content you cna message me
17:01:09 <KorbenC> GG, write about the heiarchy of Gazing politics, and other data about politics in GOSA.
17:01:21 <GO GIANTESS> what, SB likes younger people, what does that mean?
17:01:35 <KorbenC> GG, it means that SB likes younger people :P
17:01:46 <GO GIANTESS> it doesnt like Craig?
17:01:57 <KorbenC> no, it just erupts to get rid of him ;)
17:02:38 <GO GIANTESS> i think it is an equal opportunity pain
17:02:59 <KorbenC> I know, but I would have to write about something in the article :D
17:04:19 <Eric> When steamboat gets hungry, the youngins taste better!
17:04:32 <KorbenC> SB, lol
17:04:37 <KorbenC> Eric, lol-***
17:05:22 <GO GIANTESS> so Micah is president now, good for him
17:05:34 <KorbenC> yup, he will be a good one, fresh ideas.
17:05:34 <Eric> Yep, him & Trump!
17:05:42 <KorbenC> haha
17:06:27 <GO GIANTESS> thnks to DaveM if you are around too.
17:06:45 <GO GIANTESS> putting up with us annoying frogs
17:06:49 <GO GIANTESS> bulger
17:07:00 <Eric> Yep, Dave committed to that job for a long time!
17:07:27 <Eric> Glad there are more people that are willing to take up the mantel and run with it.
17:07:41 <GO GIANTESS> of ns
17:07:59 <Eric> You driving?
17:08:12 <GO GIANTESS> they still need a treasurer and gosa store rep, right?
17:08:37 <JarnoO> Conewalkers
17:08:44 <JarnoO> on that Y mound
17:08:52 <KorbenC> yes
17:09:05 <Eric> oh wow
17:09:13 <Eric> Time to call the Ranger station
17:09:21 <Eric> VEC
17:09:26 <JarnoO> it's a whole circus there
17:09:31 <Eric> Kicking stuff too!
17:09:36 <KorbenC> idiots
17:09:44 <KorbenC> walking away, and gone.
17:10:02 <Eric> I still see them!
17:10:14 <Eric> guess I have super delayed video
17:10:25 <KorbenC> cant see them on my video.
17:10:39 <JarnoO> they've gone behind the trees now
17:10:42 <Eric> Yep, I refreshed stream
17:10:58 <JarnoO> doesn't that mound have an active vent on top of it?
17:11:08 <Eric> I believe so
17:11:23 <GO GIANTESS> probably not very active gien the trees
17:11:26 <KorbenC> I think its got some steam thing on it.
17:11:41 <Mario> Howdy friends
17:11:46 <KorbenC> Hi Mario
17:11:50 <Eric> Hey Mario
17:12:10 <Eric> Love the idea of automated shuttles in the park! Going to start testing next year!
17:16:10 <GO GIANTESS> whats that eric?
17:19:44 <Eric> They announced today that next summer there will be automated shuttles in Canyon Village! https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/news/20044.htm
17:20:16 <Eric> Driverless bus that will circle around Canyon, picking up and dropping off people.
17:20:51 <Eric> campground, visitor services, and adjoining visitor lodging area
17:21:12 <Eric> No Bison jams :-P
17:21:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That worked real great in Vegas.
17:21:34 <GO GIANTESS> nice idea ...... will it go to overlooks too?
17:21:47 <Eric> No, just within the village
17:21:56 <GO GIANTESS> Mammoth could have a shuttle up and down the erraces
17:22:01 <Eric> I wish they had one to circle the overlooks, that would be awesome
17:22:28 <Eric> I would take one that just stopped at each geyser basin :-D
17:22:29 <GO GIANTESS> yeah, you coud get off at one and walk to another
17:22:49 <JarnoO> probably the first and only time I've got to use λ in an entry or note :)
17:22:59 <GO GIANTESS> the geyser basisns are a bit too spread out i think
17:23:01 <Eric> Yes, I noticed that, well done :-D
17:23:27 <Eric> 10 buses constantly driving between UGB and LGB
17:23:50 <Eric> A couple busses that went just between LGB and Norris
17:24:00 <Eric> and a couple buses that went from Norris to Canyon
17:24:28 <Eric> traffic jams would really complicate things though.
17:25:02 <Eric> But if communications infrastructure is upgraded, they would be better at adapting them humans :-D
17:27:35 <JarnoO> off for the day. Enjoy Mugwump & co.
17:28:36 <Mario> bye Jarno
17:34:28 <KorbenC> Bye Jarno
17:42:18 <GO GIANTESS> lots of comments on the YNP transit study. some peeps say tour busses cause congestion, but i think they actualy reduce it
17:42:37 <GO GIANTESS> more visitors per wheel
17:46:28 <Eric> Well, I think it's that huge chinese tourist companies are pumping visitors through for profit. So it's not really the buses themselves, but the way it's happening.
17:47:24 <GO GIANTESS> better than having them all drive rental cars tho
17:47:45 <KorbenC> It wont decrease people in the basins, I think it will increase because with less cars needed there will be more space for cars, meaning those will be filled with more and more people.
17:47:56 <GO GIANTESS> and there are a lot of non-chinese busses too
17:48:46 <GO GIANTESS> not sure what percentage are chinese comared to american or european, or other
17:49:26 <KorbenC> hey kc
17:49:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Use rail. If a bison gets in the way, it's more nachos at the Geyser Grill!
17:50:13 <KorbenC> haha
17:50:42 <GO GIANTESS> i think your proposal fr steam engines will get shot down tho Kevin
17:50:59 <kcmule> howdy
17:51:13 <KorbenC> Dome
17:51:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hey Xanterra already runs them at Grand Canyon.
17:52:09 <GO GIANTESS> wow Sunday forecast, high of 16 and low of -16 ... sweet
17:52:32 <GO GIANTESS> haha ...... dont think they will in Yellowstone
17:55:17 <GO GIANTESS> hve not heard much about the CO fires, have they subsided KC?
17:55:32 <KorbenC> no
17:55:54 <KorbenC> they are getting there, but still growing
17:56:25 <KorbenC> hoping that the 4-20 inches of snow coming to CO and negative temps will help.
17:57:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If I was a fire i would leave too.
17:57:25 <KorbenC> lol
17:57:31 <KorbenC> Fire might get cancer Kevin.
17:58:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It may
17:58:02 <GO GIANTESS> why is Mammoth to Norris road closed?
17:58:48 <kcmule> I don't see/smell any smoke but they closed all nat'l forest lands in several counties due to fire danger
17:59:16 <GO GIANTESS> ok. hope the weekend cold snap and snow help
17:59:51 <KorbenC> kcmule, its after 2PM, they tend to start calming down after that point.
18:00:10 <KorbenC> at least, the smoke is because the wind changes, and the temps start to drop.
18:00:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Rainbow Canyon on the 2nd!
18:01:41 <GO GIANTESS> can we come with you Kevin?
18:02:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If you want to.
18:22:45 <Violaters> off boardwalk fools https://youtu.be/NB8l11-90ck
18:33:45 <GO GIANTESS> Mammoth to NE entrance is closed, guess they have snow there
18:34:41 <GO GIANTESS> i see Mammoth cam is snowy
18:42:18 <Eric> Nice snow blanket in West
18:43:41 <GO GIANTESS> snow everywhere other thanUGB
18:55:37 <GO GIANTESS> you an see the snow on radar hanging arounf the MT ID border but just not making it into OF
18:56:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 😎
18:56:39 <KorbenC> GG, its about 2 miles away from OF right now, not making progress though.
18:58:35 <Forestbewithyou> Welp its that time. I am going to head out so good night all!
18:58:37 <GO GIANTESS> must be some dryer air close to OF
18:59:12 <KorbenC> Bye F
18:59:35 <GO GIANTESS> night from me too
18:59:42 <GO GIANTESS> GO SNOW
18:59:52 <KorbenC> Bye Graham.
19:02:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
19:05:49 <Linda> GO GIANTESS, night
19:06:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You going to get snow tonight Korben?
19:06:27 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, nice rainbow canyon on the 2nd
19:07:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
19:08:26 <Linda> :)
19:09:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There will be tannerite involved.
19:10:08 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, :D
19:19:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Thought you would enjoy the first 2 pictures Linda. Can you see anything in them? https://www.flickr.com/photos/158539681@N04/?
19:21:45 <Linda> Big horn sheep and a buck 🙂
19:22:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Big horn sheep is in Rainbow Canyon. The buck is on Mt Charleston about 40 miles from my house. They blend well.
19:23:19 <Linda> They do had to enlarge to see them
19:30:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is always fun to see what wildlife there is. We have seen wild horses, golden eagles, turkeys, a big blue waterbird with a long beak and long legs, crawdads, etc.
19:32:15 <Linda> Might be a little blue heron
19:32:33 <Linda> Gorgeous bird
19:34:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like it. There are beaver dams and they frequent the ponds. Never have seen a beaver there yet.
19:34:48 <Linda> Beaver would be neat to see
19:35:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I guess there are beaver in the river by our Zion house. My Son was on the neighbor's deck and saw a few.
19:36:54 <Linda> Oh nice, I dont remember ever seeing one
19:38:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am hoping we see some wildlife on this trip.
19:39:42 <Linda> That would be nice, tannerite might be counter productive though 😃
19:40:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We do that on the way back where there is not much wildlife in an old gravel pit.
19:41:26 <Linda> 😊 sounds like fun
19:43:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We did one in a gravel pit in the canyon. It was awesome but we figured we probably shouldn't do it again. Most people there love it.
19:50:23 <Linda> 😊
20:26:00 <KorbenC> Night all
22:11:34 <Roads closed> Looks like Yellowstone is closed for now!
