07:28:42 <LindaGp> I only went there to look at something Kevin mentioned and the video had the circle of death
07:28:55 <Forestbewithyou> I kept getting errors
07:29:01 <LindaGp> Didnt occur to me it was all of youtube
07:29:25 <Forestbewithyou> Yea. I didn't realize until I asked my friend and he was like yea youtube is down

07:29:46 <LindaGp> Me to
07:29:50 <LindaGp> *too
07:33:13 <KorbenC> That was Pump Korben, not the alternative :)

07:42:18 <KorbenC> OK, I am seriously looking at this icicle :P
07:42:26 <Forestbewithyou> Oh that cool
07:42:33 <Forestbewithyou> Thats really awesome!
07:42:36 <LindaGp> Lol it couldn't be in a worse.position

07:42:55 <KorbenC> lol
07:43:02 <KorbenC> I mean, thats the best position!
07:43:07 <Forestbewithyou> Well I guess no of today :p
07:43:19 <LindaGp> 😃
07:43:46 <LindaGp> It is kind of transparent though
07:50:34 <LindaGp> I you can't go around, ya gotta go through it lpl
07:50:43 <KorbenC> lol
07:50:45 <LindaGp> *lol
07:50:57 <Forestbewithyou> lol
07:50:58 <Dave from B™> Did you see the FB post of a wolf in front of OFI?
07:51:13 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, no, where was It?
07:51:22 <LindaGp> The post I mean
07:51:59 <Dave from B™> A spouse of someone who was working at OF captured it. I'm not sure what sight. I saw it yesterday
07:52:23 <LindaGp> Wow, they are out there 🙄
07:56:34 <LindaGp> I can't get away from it
08:01:27 <LindaGp> OF
08:01:40 <KorbenC> nice
08:01:45 <KorbenC> split down the middle
08:02:00 <LindaGp> LOL
08:08:35 <LindaGp> This icicle has a nose
08:13:50 <LindaGp> Controls stopped too
08:15:25 <LindaGp> Back
08:17:27 <Zu kalt> Linda broke the cam?
08:20:49 <LindaGp> Zu kalt, I have more.power than I realized 😮
08:21:32 <LindaGp> Think I broke the geysers too
08:21:46 <LindaGp> except for.pump lol
08:22:02 <Zu kalt> Actually I would be more impressed if you could make it work!
08:22:24 <Zu kalt> Yesterday was terrible for geysers.
08:22:33 <LindaGp> 😃 good point
08:23:07 <LindaGp> Since I've taken it only OF
08:23:26 <LindaGp> And it has it's own icicle
08:25:44 <Zu kalt> I have to get some things done but should be able to take it an hour early if that would help. I will have to leave at 1230 and not sure of the return time, depends on traffic and time in Dr office.
08:26:53 <LindaGp> Katie is on next so ask her about early. I'll show up at 14:00
08:29:19 <LindaGp> Ok so confused again. 12:30 mst would make it 02:30 est
08:30:34 <Dave from B™> We should only talk in Mountain Time...after all, the world revolves around YNP:)
08:31:00 <LindaGp> Yikes.
08:35:20 <Katie> Just sat down and signing in
08:35:51 <LindaGp> Pk
08:35:54 <LindaGp> Ok
08:36:07 <LindaGp> controls released
08:36:18 <Katie> Do we have some time that needs covered today?
08:36:31 <LindaGp> Yes kevin
08:36:56 <Zu kalt> That would work Linda. If you aren't feeling well Katie, I can take it.
08:36:57 <LindaGp> I think he is leaving at 12:30 met to take wife to doc
08:37:06 <LindaGp> *mst
08:37:23 <Zu kalt> She did walk without a walker yesterday!
08:37:43 <LindaGp> It was Kat that had oepration
08:38:02 <Zu kalt> OK, I get confused.
08:38:36 <LindaGp> So ill take at 12:30 mst unless Katie wants to
08:38:40 <Katie> Zu kalt, cool. It's yours. I'll (mostly) be around, but I could use some away-from-desk time this afternoon.
08:39:26 <LindaGp> Be back at 12:30
08:39:55 <Katie> controls are sluggish :(
08:40:26 <LindaGp> Very up and down
08:40:41 <Zu kalt> OK.
08:40:46 <Zu kalt> Got it
08:41:22 <CaF2> I wish I could get a high-resolution image of the lake as the ice forms. I don't think our NASA images are high-rez enough.
08:43:38 <LindaGp> Kevin you are going to love the icicle at old faithful
08:43:54 <LindaGp> Can't get around it only through it
08:44:47 <Kevin L™🌵> They do like to grow over geysers
08:46:10 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin, Katie
08:46:19 <LindaGp> Its like they know
08:46:24 <Katie> Hi, Dave
08:47:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
08:49:39 <KorbenC> Icicle needs a post it note, "NOT GIANTESS."
08:49:45 <Kevin L™🌵> I was just looking at my Uncle's (the one that was the ranger at Zion) service record on family search. He made cars before he enlisted. Didn't know they made cars in Utah.
08:50:30 <Linda> What company?
08:51:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Doesn't say.
08:52:20 <Kevin L™🌵> My guess is it was probably something that made farm equipment.
08:53:21 <Dave from B™> Kevin, how many years was he a ranger at Zion?
08:53:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Just found my Gandfather's WWI draft registration with an actual picture.
08:53:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably 40 to 50 years Dave.
08:55:28 <Dave from B™> wow
08:55:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like about 40 years Dave.
08:56:46 <Dave from B™> Kevin, did any of your uncles kids follow in his footsteps?
08:58:08 <Kevin L™🌵> No. My Son is really interested in the history up there though. We have an appreciation of service letter here signed by Ronald Reagan.
08:58:55 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric, Rich
08:59:12 <Eric> Morning all
08:59:14 <Eric> Hi Dave
08:59:18 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
08:59:30 <Eric> Hi Kevin
09:00:56 <Rich> Hi Dave from B
09:01:10 <Rich> G'day everyone
09:02:28 <Kevin L™🌵> God Fall picture: https://www.railpictures.net/photo/753900/
09:02:43 <KorbenC> Very pretty!
09:03:23 <KorbenC> Kevin L™🌵, we drove by the Georgetown loop on the way to go skiing yesterday :)
09:04:05 <Kevin L™🌵> That is a fun train ride. My daughter hid on the floor when we crossed the bridge.
09:04:08 <Dave from B™> Gerogetown Loop is fun
09:04:23 <KorbenC> lol
09:04:58 <Kevin L™🌵> That is on the list for next year if this stupid $@#%@^#$$@#$^%#%^@#$ covid ever ends.
09:05:38 <Eric> Well, vaccines are starting to become available soon. Hopefully people will use them.
09:05:48 <KorbenC> Somehow, thats the crazyiest thing I have ever heard Kevin say :P
09:05:57 <Eric> BTW, anyone else super excited about Saturday?
09:06:02 <KorbenC> not crazy as in wrong, but the tone I got was crazy :P
09:06:09 <KorbenC> Eric, what happens on Saturday?
09:06:29 <Katie> Stay home, stay safe!
09:06:29 <Eric> SpaceX launching our astronauts @ 12:30 PST
09:06:47 <KorbenC> nice!
09:06:54 <Eric> I will be be glued to the monitor watching this event.
09:07:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice. Didn't know that.
09:07:07 <Katie> Obviously I was thinking of something else. Yes, stay home, stay safe and watch launch. yay!
09:07:16 <KorbenC> I am very excited for sunday, as far as I am aware, the front range forest reopens again, meaning I can go do a snowy hike
09:07:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Good sunspot pic: https://spaceweather.com/
09:07:24 <Eric> Finally getting away from using Russian spacecraft!
09:08:14 <Eric> Thats cool Kevin, like a sunspot volcano
09:09:07 <Kevin L™🌵> I remember the 60's launches where we were all glued to the small b&w tv.
09:09:23 <Eric> Pretty difficult to get Covid outdoors if you are not standing next to someone talking to them face to face.
09:09:53 <Eric> Yep, It is still a thrill to see our astronauts get hurled into the sky.
09:10:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I still can't get over the landing of the bottom stage. Like a Ray Bradbury novel.
09:11:18 <Eric> Yes, the recovery landings for the stages are nuts! Plus they are landing them on tilting ships!
09:11:55 <Kevin L™🌵> That is what really boggles the mind. Some super smart people at Space X.
09:12:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Wonder how they would do with a slide rule.
09:12:26 <Eric> Yes, many other space companies too. Other people are coming up with great recovery mechanisms.
09:14:00 <Eric> My brother worked for a Unmanned Aerial Vehicle company that sold fairly large UAVs. Their landing was by winghook, the plane rammed itself into a rope and spun in wide circles. Making it easy to land in very small spaces, like on ships.
09:15:17 <Eric> Military used them in Iraq to detect dirt disturbances from IEDs placed overnight.
09:15:28 <Eric> Saved a lot of soldiers lives.
09:16:05 <Delta> LindaG, don't ever do this again "06:52:58 ‹LindaG› Beautiful day, I might actually see some geysers" Jinx :)
09:16:38 <Eric> haha
09:19:33 <Forestbewithyou> I will bbl
09:20:13 <Linda> Forestbewithyou, bye
09:21:06 <Katie> Of course there is another icicle right on Daisy.
09:24:30 <Katie> But we can see it. :)
09:24:51 <Delta> :daisy:
09:24:54 <KorbenC> At least BH is clear :D
09:25:37 <Eric> This cam is sucking it....bbl
09:26:19 <KorbenC> Hi there Old Sickle Geyser :)
09:26:29 <Kevin L™🌵> They are setting panels in Kansas City Eric.
09:26:46 <Eric> oh cool, thanks Kevin
09:27:14 <Eric> Need to get breakfast and start packing for snowshoeing tomorrow morning.
09:28:28 <KorbenC> Kevin L™🌵, does that cam at least work?
09:29:23 <Eric> Looks like they are just moving the panels now Kevin...did you actually see them set one?
09:29:52 <Kevin L™🌵> It does Korben
09:30:35 <Eric> Helps to be in the middle of a major city :-P
09:30:42 <Eric> Real internet
09:31:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Loop cam works and it is in the boondocks and radio controlled.
09:42:17 <Katie> OF
09:42:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Old Icicle.
09:47:48 <Dilemma> oh. Capturer stuck. Either way, looked like a short to me
09:47:51 <Katie> thanks, Dilenma. I was just going to do that. I didn't observer time well. Was it a short?
09:48:59 <Katie> Edited. Thanks for doing the homework. :)
09:55:09 <Eric> Looks like it restarted itself...but with the horrible cam behavior, it's going to be dodgy
09:57:50 <Dave from B™> Welcome to 19th century technology:P
10:00:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Perry Mason music. I guess I better fasten my seatbelt.
10:01:03 <Katie> I don't think you'll be going fast enough to need it, today. But good luck with that.
10:01:41 <Eric> The cam should start working again in about an hour
10:01:59 <Eric> seems like 1100 is the magic time.
10:06:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum
10:07:11 <Katie> congrats, sorta, Kevin
10:07:37 <Kevin L™🌵> At least we have a time!
10:18:02 <Dave from B™> Kevin, how can you drive this poece of junk?
10:18:25 <A> is performance weather related?
10:18:53 <Dave from B™> A, I brought that up last week and no one responded
10:19:09 <Kevin L™🌵> I am used to driving pieces of junk Dave.
10:20:43 <Dave from B™> haha
10:22:59 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't think weather makes a difference. It doesn't work regardless of the weather.
10:23:41 <Linda> As soon as peeps left started acting up
10:24:10 <A> what peeps? visitors? NPS?
10:24:23 <Linda> I say their phones keep the wifi exercised 🤣
10:24:29 <Dave from B™> It seems to be a morning issue.
10:24:42 <Linda> Visitors
10:24:44 <Dave from B™> haha Linda
10:24:46 <A> it's pregnant?
10:27:46 <Linda> Watch out if it gives birth
10:28:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Would midol help?
10:28:48 <Dave from B™> It's just sad in todays world of technology that this can't be fixed immediately
10:29:52 <Kevin L™🌵> I suspect it has something to do with the data land line.
10:33:28 <Eric> 30 minutes until smooth stream
10:33:33 <Katie> Kevin L™🌵, agreed. And getting CenturyLink to do anything requires that an authorized contact for the account be persistent with them.
10:55:08 <Eric> Getting close to recovery time
10:55:51 <Eric> Yes, they need someone to ride Century Link like a bull at the rodeo!
10:58:08 <A> 2 minutes more?
10:58:22 <Dave from B™> Eric, did you see CraigC FB post re his old car?
10:59:24 <Dave from B™> Katie, did you see it?
11:00:09 <KorbenC> I did, and I cant beleive that is Craig :P
11:00:20 <Katie> Nope - going to look...
11:00:26 <Dave from B™> I had to look twice!
11:00:44 <Eric> I just did Dave...crazy
11:00:50 <Eric> Me too!
11:00:58 <Eric> The Don Johnson of Utah :-P
11:01:10 <Dave from B™> hahaha
11:01:29 <Katie> Crazy. Oh, and the time of white shorts, white socks, white shoes... Oh my. And that stache! I can kinda see him in the face, but only just barely.
11:01:38 <Eric> Still waiting for Dave's 80s pic :-D
11:01:57 <Dave from B™> I had lots of hair
11:01:57 <Eric> Yep, he has the 80s nailed Katie
11:02:15 <Eric> ticked off every stereotype
11:02:24 <Dave from B™> I still wear white socks:)
11:03:11 <Katie> My husband is revisiting his 80's vibe with checkered Vans. I probably say "nice shoes" 3x per day.
11:06:14 <Katie> I was an adolescent in the 80's, whereas my husband was a young adult in the 80's (he is a cradle robber). When he was kicking it in Vans, I would have been wearing different colored jelly shoes on opposite feet and a rainbow of bandanas tied around various limbs.
11:06:46 <Katie> and rocking a short haircut with a looooong rat tail. :D
11:07:26 <Kevin L™🌵> I do have a 1977 picture: https://www.flickr.com/photos/158539681@N04/50593639593/in/dateposted-public/
11:08:00 <Dave from B™> My wife had the Farrah Fawcett do that took 2-3 hours to perfect everyday
11:08:08 <Katie> Ooooh! white socks with Birks. (why am I fixated on sockes today?)
11:08:35 <Eric> You look just like you did back then Dave!
11:08:36 <Dave from B™> haha. you beat me to it. Socks with sandals is NOT allowed in our house:D
11:08:58 <Eric> Socks with sandles is my daily attire :-P
11:09:13 <Eric> Birks and huge wooly socks
11:09:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Those are tire tread sandals.
11:10:22 <Katie> Dave from B™, around about ... 2001-2003, my brother-in-law and father-in-law went to Belize. My FIL did NOT like having his picture taken, AT ALL. But, there is a photo of him at some ruins wearing plaid shorts (I never saw him in shorts in person) and BLACK knee high socks.
11:10:33 <Dave from B™> Eric, I had much longer hair than today
11:11:07 <Kevin L™🌵> My hair length was mandated back then.
11:11:11 <Katie> Oh, and white sneakers.
11:11:19 <Dave from B™> haha. My high gold toed white socks are always 95% hidden. I do not wear them with shorts or I would be divorced
11:12:39 <Katie> My FIL, a scientist (PhD in forestry) and a Christian, didn't like having his photo stolen and always took his hair from barber to burn it and also burned his nail clippings. Christian and scientist with a fear of voodoo? Go figure.
11:13:03 <Katie> I meant photo taken but nice Freudian slip to "stolen."
11:13:09 <Eric> Wow
11:13:18 <Eric> Hey Craig :-D
11:13:26 <Dave from B™> :D:D
11:13:39 <Dave from B™> We were thinking Don Johnson
11:13:44 <Magnum PI> hahahahaha
11:13:49 <Eric> Magnum works too
11:15:09 <Magnum PI> been called Ron Jeremy, also
11:15:35 <Eric> ohhh, you didn't show us those pics
11:15:49 <Magnum PI> well, not for that reason
11:16:18 <Eric> hahaha
11:17:30 <Magnum PI> gotta take off, we're gonna go ride bikes on a pathway around Ogden, trails are too snowy
11:19:02 <Eric> Nice, enjoy Magnum
11:19:22 <Kevin L™🌵> I did have a side job too: https://www.flickr.com/photos/158539681@N04/50593673478/in/dateposted-public/
11:19:55 <Eric> Thats awesome Kevin :-D
11:20:04 <Eric> Love your smile
11:20:54 <Kevin L™🌵> The APC behind that is the one I drove. LOTS of fun on the Autobahn.
11:20:57 <Dave from B™> I just sent Craig a pic from 1981...not sure I want the whole world to see it
11:22:44 <Dave from B™> I posted. Let the ridicule begin:)
11:24:00 <Eric> where did you post it?
11:24:30 <Dave from B™> On my story
11:25:37 <Eric> haha, you haven't changed a bit!
11:25:52 <Eric> You look EXACTLY like you do now.
11:25:55 <Dave from B™> Actually, that was in early 1982
11:28:02 <Linda> Well that's a weather change 😕
11:28:29 <Dave from B™> That was our UM basketball game gear. We were part of the rowdy student section. We had our picture in the paper 2 or 3 times
11:28:50 <Eric> Nice
11:29:10 <Eric> You guys look like real trouble makers :-P
11:29:57 <Dave from B™> Nope, just liked to have fun. Boy did we harass opposing coaches and players
11:30:42 <Dave from B™> One game, everytime, the Weber State coach clapped we made a seal sound. It was hilarious and the whole student section picked up on it.
11:31:31 <Dave from B™> Those were the days when basketball was king over football at UM
11:41:42 <Eric> 50 year anniversary of Oregon's hwy department blowing up a whale on our beach!
11:42:30 <Dave from B™> Was that 50 years ago?
11:42:55 <Dilemma> 💥
11:43:10 <JarnoO> morning-ish all
11:44:07 <Linda> Morning,
11:44:12 <Linda> Lake look great
11:44:31 <JarnoO> nice sunlight there, too
11:46:33 <Eric> Hi Jarno
11:46:45 <Eric> Yep Dave - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6CLumsir34
11:47:21 <Eric> What do you do with a multi-ton whale dead on your beach?
11:47:26 <Kevin L™🌵> One of the all time greats.
11:47:35 <Eric> Bring in Kevin and his tannerite :-P
11:47:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Why didn't NDOT ever do that?
11:47:59 <Eric> The remastered the footage for the anniversary Kevin
11:48:10 <Eric> No wales!
11:50:58 <Kevin L™🌵> We only got to do rocks.
11:51:20 <Eric> Yep, boring :-P
11:51:45 <Kevin L™🌵> We did some boring before the blasts.
11:52:12 <JarnoO> "(...) we may have to do some other clean-up (...)". That aged well
11:52:27 <Eric> haha, yes...that video is so classic
11:53:07 <Eric> Linnman was a long time news personality in Oregon.
11:53:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Hey Jarno, my kid drove by the gas sign yesterday. It is still there. https://www.flickr.com/photos/158539681@N04/50591587988/in/dateposted-public/
11:53:50 <JarnoO> :)
11:54:03 <JarnoO> you definitely want a full tank there
11:54:21 <Eric> We have a few of those in Eastern Washington & Oregon
11:54:26 <Kevin L™🌵> That gives you a better idea of how much nothing is out there.
11:54:37 <JarnoO> flower
11:54:47 <Eric> That is 262km!
11:54:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Is Daisy in there?
11:54:59 <Linda> Yup
11:58:40 <JarnoO> 262km is almost crossing the Netherlands from the SE to the NW... and that would pretty much only be a distance you'd travel for a day out or holidays
12:02:11 <JarnoO> 1153:56 for Daisy, actually
12:02:50 <Dave from B™> Montana is 700 miles from west to end border
12:02:55 <Dave from B™> east*
12:06:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Nevada is roughly 7 times bigger than the Netherlands
12:07:11 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure what our longest stretch without gas is. I would guess 40-50 miles
12:07:50 <Kevin L™🌵> We have a lot of long runs
12:10:22 <Linda> Jersey is 150 miles long and 70 miles wide
12:12:38 <Linda> So you could be in the mountains and/or on the beach in one day if you wanted
12:15:13 <Linda> It's time to look at OFs icicle
12:16:37 <Kevin L™🌵> My timer was 10m off
12:16:55 <Linda> 😊
12:18:51 <Rich> nice ice
12:19:59 <Linda> 😃
12:20:15 <Eric> It's vanilla
12:20:25 <Kevin L™🌵> It is getting thinner
12:21:23 <Linda> Yeah 21 degrees warmer than this morning
12:21:34 <DougB> can someone just move the camera left-right really fast?
12:22:03 <Linda> Doesnt work
12:22:04 <Dave from B™> Doug, Bob is heavily attached!:D
12:22:22 <Eric> Bob & Doug, two of my favorite guys!
12:22:29 <Linda> But you can see through it if you zoom
12:22:34 <Kevin L™🌵> It hangs on the cover.
12:22:49 <Eric> I am here for my free case of beer, eh!
12:23:13 <A> you found a mouse inside the cam?
12:23:42 <Linda> Its not evem straight, it bent just enough to cover old faithful
12:24:16 <JarnoO> even the cam cover disagrees on mandatory Fluff time ;)
12:24:28 <Linda> Lol
12:24:37 <Eric> Take off, you hoser.
12:24:51 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
12:26:28 <Eric> Yeah. OK, well, uh, we found, uh, this mouse in a bottle of YOUR BEER, eh. Like, we was at a party and, uh, a friend of ours - a COP - had some, and HE PUKED. And he said, uh, come here and get free beer or, uh, he'll press charges.
12:26:56 <Eric> I loved that movie
12:28:07 <Dave from B™> Lot of old classic odd movies
12:28:17 <Linda> Kevin L™🌵, I can take cam if you want to get going
12:28:20 <Eric> OF
12:28:25 <Eric> behind the icicle
12:28:33 <Linda> 😃
12:28:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds good. Controls released.
12:29:04 <Linda> 👍
12:29:16 <Eric> Happy Exploding Whale Day to you too :-D
12:29:27 <Linda> Got it
12:29:35 <Eric> Kind of the opposite of happy whale day.
12:29:36 <Happy Whale Day> Talk about classic film!
12:29:54 <Dave from B™> GE?
12:30:28 <JarnoO> ooh, nice. Zooming in allows you to see "through" the icicle
12:30:49 <Eric> Yep, focus is an amazing thing :-D
12:30:59 <Happy Whale Day> Only someone from the road department would think explosives cure everything.
12:31:17 <Eric> I wear a contact monocle!
12:31:26 <LindaGp> 😊 it's translucent
12:31:28 <Eric> It's true HWD.
12:31:59 <Eric> It did remove the whale from the beach, or at least most of it.
12:32:29 <Eric> Engineers solve problems...but they make new ones.
12:32:51 <Happy Whale Day> I seem to recall most of it was left behind, and all over.
12:33:13 <JarnoO> looks like a Turban
12:33:15 <Eric> Watch the remastered video they released today...you get to see all the bits float down.
12:33:59 <Happy Whale Day> The sound was the best part.
12:34:54 <Happy Whale Day> Bob 2 makes castle look tall today.
12:35:38 <LindaGp> Arty maybe
12:36:06 <LindaGp> Time will tell
12:36:10 <JarnoO> I'd expect more steam in these conditions, though.
12:36:39 <LindaGp> Might just be starting and then might not
12:36:52 <Happy Whale Day> If you do not miss it with the circle. See you later.
12:39:06 <JarnoO> cya HWD
12:57:47 <LindaGp> Hrand
12:57:48 <LindaGp> .
12:57:48 <LindaGp> .
12:57:54 <LindaGp> .grand
12:59:28 <Dave from B™> haha
13:00:57 <LindaGp> Nice light
13:07:52 <LindaGp> 2nd
13:08:32 <LindaGp> Nice
13:16:27 <StaceyM> Riverside?
13:17:21 <LindaGp> StaceyM, inthink it's drifting steam from grand
13:17:39 <A> it looks distinct to me
13:17:42 <StaceyM> Behind the trees
13:17:49 <LindaGp> Actually I guess riverside
13:18:12 <LindaGp> it coming up right there
13:18:13 <JarnoO> 1 burst from Grand, with exceptionally lazy bursting for over a minute before it picked up speed again
13:18:41 <LindaGp> JarnoO, you didn't think there was as 2nd?
13:19:19 <JarnoO> nope, 1306:34 through 1307:45 was lazy bursting sometimes seconds apart with barely any steam output
13:19:39 <JarnoO> almost like it wanted to but couldn't
13:20:36 <JarnoO> well, I say barely - should really be below average
13:20:47 <LindaGp> 👍
13:24:30 <LindaGp> Bulger
13:25:22 <JarnoO> major
13:51:22 <LindaGp> Little bit of steam in front of bee
13:52:05 <JarnoO> looks like the icicle has sagged a bit
13:53:28 <LindaGp> Its cool that we can see through it
13:54:44 <Betty> Hi all
13:54:54 <LindaGp> Betty, hi
13:54:54 <JarnoO> evening Betty
13:55:33 <Betty> Afternoon LindaGp and evening JarnoO
13:56:02 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
13:56:15 <Betty> Hey Dave from B™
13:57:15 <Betty> Good chance for BH in 20 min.
13:57:58 <LindaGp> Betty, know something we don't know?
13:58:28 <Betty> Tunnel time then :p
13:58:31 <LindaGp> Of
13:58:50 <LindaGp> Betty, ahhh
14:03:59 <Dave from B™> Tomorrow, the icicle will melt
14:04:42 <Betty> Hopefully
14:05:29 <Dave from B™> Really? You're doubting my weather predictions, too?:D
14:05:55 <Betty> ;)
14:06:53 <Betty> What‘s your BH prediction?
14:07:22 <Betty> Oh,I see I missed Jeff
14:07:56 <LindaGp> Be right back need to throw wash in dryer
14:08:43 <JarnoO> flower
14:09:12 <Betty> Sure now when Linda is away
14:10:57 <Betty> Still waiting
14:11:24 <LindaGp> Back
14:11:51 <Betty> Now I see Daisy
14:11:52 <LindaGp> darn
14:12:19 <Dave from B™> Beehive is immenent:)
14:12:23 <LindaGp> I wasn't gone that long
14:13:06 <Betty> Aha, Dave
14:13:20 <JarnoO> so is Lion I think
14:14:50 <LindaGp> I guess that's like feeding the chickens
14:15:22 <Betty> Now you can relate to Kevin
14:15:57 <LindaGp> For sure
14:17:10 <Betty> My lag on phone is about almost 3 min. Way too much
14:17:48 <LindaGp> wow
14:18:38 <LindaGp> Maybe bee and lion together ☺
14:18:40 <Betty> Just came back to GH
14:20:01 <LindaGp> Yikes
14:21:19 <Betty> Tunnel time. bbl
14:21:50 <LindaGp> bye
14:22:10 <Kevin L™🌵> I am back
14:22:27 <LindaGp> hello, controls relwased
14:22:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Thank you VERY much
14:23:10 <LindaGt> Kevin L™🌵, yw
14:24:08 <JarnoO> Aurum
14:24:39 <Kevin L™🌵> It likes me today!
14:26:40 <LindaGt> Oh foul, I left for a couple minutes
14:29:35 <Kevin L™🌵> You went out to get snow?
14:30:54 <LindaGt> Just to a different screen, she's a cruel geyser
14:31:16 <JarnoO> splish splash from the cat
14:50:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Some bsb action
14:52:14 <LindaGt> 😊
14:55:54 <JarnoO> Remember the many visitors we saw late into October? No wonder the visitation went up 110% of last October and it even set an all-time record at 360 034: https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/news/20046.htm
14:58:25 <Dave from B™> My PPP Loan forgiveness ap[plication is giving me a headache. Time to go sweat and release some tension. Have a great evneing everyone
14:58:40 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Dave
14:58:45 <KB> bye
14:58:48 <JarnoO> cya Dave, enjoy
14:59:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I can tell you where to get tannerite Dave.
14:59:48 <Dave from B™> That won't get me my loan forgiven, Kevin but I would feel better
15:00:07 <Kevin L™🌵> That is the point! :)
15:00:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Stress relief
15:06:55 <JarnoO> I wonder what Castle is up to. Late in window
15:07:43 <KB> it has an 8 hour window today
15:07:59 <KB> which means it minored
15:08:02 <JarnoO> oh lol
15:08:12 <JarnoO> thought it was ±45m
15:08:33 <KB> would have been if last was a major
15:08:41 <JarnoO> indeed
15:08:57 <KB> park service doesn't even predict it if it does a minor
15:09:23 <JarnoO> that's new - steam from the NG area
15:09:37 <JarnoO> first time I've seen obvious steam from it
15:09:39 <Forestbewithyou> Time for my walk bbl
15:09:46 <JarnoO> cya Forest
15:09:54 <KB> did bsb erupt earlier or just steam
15:10:10 <JarnoO> just steam, though it did look a tad bit forced
15:10:36 <KB> ok
15:10:43 <KorbenC> Afternoon all, evening JO/Betty.
15:10:50 <JarnoO> afternoon Korben
15:11:31 <JarnoO> 80/90 is all I gotta say I think :)
15:12:30 <KorbenC> Beehive looks a tad happy, even factoring in the weaher in
15:18:32 <JarnoO> Castle ie
15:19:27 <KB> yay Castle
15:19:28 <KorbenC> nice
15:19:43 <JarnoO> looks like it has overcome the pauses and is now on its way to major
15:19:47 <KB> hot water wins over cold temperatures
15:20:45 <KorbenC> Hopefully we dont see another Eta in Central America.
15:20:45 <JarnoO> major
15:22:50 <JarnoO> fun to see the transition to steam. Several tall jets accompanied by billowing steam throughout them
15:23:08 <KorbenC> That it is!
15:23:35 <KorbenC> SB also has a spectacular transition to steam, that is for certain. :)
15:24:00 <JarnoO> Castle's transition reminds me a bit of Ear's 2018 eruption. At the end it looked like it briefly had steam before it calmed
15:24:40 <JarnoO> which shouldn't really be surprising since it's virtually always near or at boiling
15:24:49 <GO GIANTESS> good afternoon/evening
15:24:56 <JarnoO> afternoon Graham
15:24:59 <KorbenC> Hey Graham
15:25:43 <GO GIANTESS> Giantess transition to steam is fun too ...... closer to Steamboats
15:26:03 <KorbenC> Ive never seen G in person, so I cant speak for it :P
15:26:51 <JarnoO> oh yes, that was likely the best thing I've ever seen on the cam. The height it attained before it turned to steam instantly and accompanied by a rainbow. Every so often I watch the boil and the transition back :)
15:30:15 <GO GIANTESS> its a noisy banging sound like SB makes
15:30:27 <GO GIANTESS> well, you have heard the videos i guess
15:30:53 <KorbenC> SB is just, well, crazy powerful, I would bet G is the same
15:43:25 <Betty> wow, no BH yet?
15:43:48 <Betty> well it had its chance
15:44:16 <KorbenC> Afternoon Betty
15:44:32 <Betty> hi KorbenC
15:44:55 <Forestbewithyou> I am back from the sunset but I have to go. Be back later
15:45:11 <Betty> later
15:45:15 <JarnoO> cya Forest
15:48:23 <KorbenC> Hi Linda
15:48:30 <LJG> KorbenC, hi
15:48:55 <JarnoO> hi Linda
15:50:43 <JarnoO> c'mon Lion... You're doing above-normal series intervals now, too?
15:50:53 <JarnoO> (that is assuming we missed a series overnight)
15:51:05 <LJG> JarnoO, hi
15:51:29 <LJG> They are plotting against us
15:54:25 <JarnoO> I have a slight suspicion the Lion subgroup is changing a bit. First LC is dormant and about an hour ago I saw some heavy, non-eruptive steam from NG. Combined with somewhat longer Lion series end-series start intervals makes me if the complex is trying to shift energy towards Lioness and BC. They have been looking a tad better than I can remember, even taking into consideration the cold
15:54:56 <JarnoO> makes me wonder if*
15:56:09 <Betty> bubbler steam
15:57:39 <KorbenC> Jarno, like what I saw happening a few years ago when BH did this? Except the power shifted to BSB, and away from Bee instead of the same sort of stuff in the Lion group?
15:58:57 <KorbenC> BSB is huffing away.
15:59:20 <KorbenC> Hey Chris
15:59:26 <ChrisO> hey
15:59:43 <Betty> hi Chris
16:00:07 <JarnoO> could actually be exchange of function [i]away[/i] from LC and Lion. If it was towards Lioness and BC, then I don't think NG would have been steaming like it did an hour or so
16:00:07 <GO GIANTESS> i see Bob is still with s
16:00:46 <KB> let me guess, you named the icicle
16:00:47 <GO GIANTESS> not sure what NG did when they were active
16:01:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Controls released
16:01:15 <GO GIANTESS> thats what its name was in prir seasons .. of course we have multiple Bob's now
16:01:27 <Betty> hey Kevin L™🌵, GO GIANTESS, KB
16:01:39 <KB> hey, I liked your article in the sput
16:01:44 <ChrisO> the icicle has a name?
16:01:56 <KB> hello Betty
16:02:06 <KB> is it warmer where you are?
16:02:43 <KB> Did you get to see the Beehive that you missed going thru the tunnel?
16:02:54 <JarnoO> So far this week we had Bob 1, 2 and 3. Bob 1 (at Daisy) unfortunately fell off. Bob 2 (in front of the Anemones) has gained in size since yesterday and Bob 3 (in front of OF) has formed overnight. I think that's chronology? :)
16:02:56 <Betty> mid 50s
16:03:04 <KB> nice
16:03:31 <KB> we have an inch of snow that is slowly melting, but we have been as cold as Yellowstone
16:03:33 <StaceyM> So...the one in front of the Anemones...is it Bob 2 or Bob Too?
16:03:38 <Betty> I saw the capture
16:03:53 <KB> good
16:03:57 <JarnoO> whatever you like, Stacey :)
16:04:09 <Betty> Little and Big Bb, StaceyM ;-)
16:04:21 <Betty> Bob*
16:05:00 <KB> usually it gets dark about 5pm here, but yesterday with the cloud cover it was dark at 4pm
16:06:13 <Betty> ugh
16:07:19 <KorbenC> c'mon Lion
16:07:23 <JarnoO> that looks better for Lion
16:07:26 <GO GIANTESS> GO LION
16:07:30 <JarnoO> ini
16:07:32 <KorbenC> meow!
16:20:47 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1726±5m if series continues. 7m02s
16:28:42 <JarnoO> I'm off for the day. Bee appears to be past its prime time. Enjoy Daisy
16:29:10 <KorbenC> Bye Jarno
16:29:13 <KorbenC> Have a good one.
16:29:34 <Betty> night Jarno
16:30:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave broke Daisy
16:30:51 <KorbenC> save needs to stop Sharking the geysers :)
