05:37:53 <NOCAM> Memories :(
07:10:07 <Dave from B™> Will we see the 4th consecutive longer interval from Steamboat?
07:10:47 <KorbenC> Morning Dave.
07:10:55 <KorbenC> We will, unless you break it again!
07:11:18 <Dave from B™> Based on logger data, my feeling is for late tonight or tomorrow
07:11:54 <KorbenC> I have had seismos open since last afternoon, so it wont be missed :D
08:29:56 <Dave from B™> Morning Rich
08:30:29 <KorbenC> For JO (since I think he might be here) two 0/20 in Atlantic, Iota PTC, both invests dont look like they want to do anything.
08:31:13 <KorbenC> Last advisory for Iota :( Could be last advisory of the year.
08:32:31 <KorbenC> Hi lljm
08:32:49 <Dave from B™> Good morning Lori
08:32:59 <lori lurking Je> morning all!
08:33:14 <lori lurking Je> Hey Dave, can you ship to North Dakota? I know you can't to Iowa
08:33:34 <Dave from B™> Yes, we can ship to ND
08:34:14 <Dave from B™> It takes 2 days, on a normal week, that means we can ship Mon for Wed, Tues for Thurs or Wed for Fri
08:35:00 <lori lurking Je> oh, good! want to message me how to order, please :) I am trying to get Christmas shopping done, and the ND son-in-law is now getting from you!
08:46:28 <KorbenC> Lori, I just called him, it worked for me. And I highly recommend it, very good seafood!
08:47:39 <lori lurking Je> Yeah, I wanted to get some special fish talked about on here before and I can't get it. I forget what it was now, lol
08:53:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I gave my Son a stocking full of coal once.
08:54:09 <Dave from B™> haha, Kevin. You need to place an order when you are in Idaho next
08:55:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We were planning on Thanksgivin in Idaho but that is not going to happen.
08:55:38 <Dave from B™> Yeah. It's going to be a different holiday season this year
08:56:57 <Dave from B™> Taylor and Keaton spend Thanksgiving at his parents. We will have 5 at dinner this year.
08:57:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My wife is lucky just to make it from the bedroom to the living room right now.
08:59:48 <lori lurking Je> I could overbake some chocolate mini-muffins again, they look like coal ;)
09:01:03 <Dave from B™> Kevin, have they figured out what is wrong with her foot?
09:02:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> when were at Gold Spike my Son objected when we were going to leave in the normal 3 year old method. One of the engineers took him into the cab and let him pull the whistle and showed him how it worked and let him throw coal into the firebox. He gave him a lump of coal from the tender.
09:03:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not yet Dave. They have her working on something now to see if it helps.
09:04:15 <Dave from B™> Hopefully, they figure it out soon. Kevin, we are planning on going to Gold Spike next year. Any advice?
09:05:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My Mom to my kid that is he kept being bad Santa would bring him a stocking full of coal. He liked that idea! When we took him to see Santa he asked for a Stocking full of coal. Santa's look was priceless as was Mom's when he got the stocking full of coal.
09:06:40 <Dave from B™> hahaha
09:06:48 <Eric> Morning all
09:06:49 <lori lurking Je> perfect, Kevin! As a mom, the mess would be on m mind! I did give each kid a bag of the coal gum one year.
09:06:53 <Eric> Nice story Kevin :-D
09:08:10 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric.
09:08:25 <Dave from B™> haha, Lori. I was thinking the same thing! I hope he opened it OUTSIDE!!
09:08:32 <Eric> Hi Dave
09:09:19 <Eric> I love some of the names this morning :-P
09:09:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave, they have a time that they do a demonstration with the engines. Make sure you are there for that. There are some fun trails, both walking and driving. Got to the 10 miles of track laid in one day sign and make sure you read up on the history about that.
09:10:09 <Dave from B™> Thanks. WE may go there in April on the way to Moab and Zion
09:10:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You can also see the spots where there are two roadbeds. Nobody set a meeting point and they got paid for grading and then for track laying so the graders just kept going.
09:11:17 <Dave from B™> haha
09:12:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is WAY in the middle of nowhere. The road just keeps getting smaller as you go and then it just appears. Looks just like the pictures in the history books.
09:13:13 <Dave from B™> How far off I-15. I've past the sign a few times
09:15:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably about 20 miles. You can take a road from Tremonton down but it is through a lot of little towns and has some 90° turns, then take the main road back to I-15 and save a lot of miles.
09:15:39 <Dave from B™> sounds like a plan
09:16:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I really enjoy it. We were going to try to meet my Daughter there with the Grandsons this month. :(
09:19:26 <LindaG> Morning
09:20:01 <KorbenC> Hi Linda
09:20:10 <LindaG> KorbenC, hi
09:20:30 <KorbenC> Congrats on your flu shot :)
09:20:38 <Betty> hi all
09:20:51 <KorbenC> Betty, hey
09:20:57 <LindaG> LindaG, 😃gee thanks
09:21:07 <LindaG> Betty, hi
09:21:20 <Eric> Hi Linda
09:21:21 <Betty> hi KorbenC, LindaG, Kevin L™ 🌵, Dave from B™, Eric
09:21:26 <Eric> Hi Betty
09:21:27 <LindaG> Eric, hi
09:21:37 <LindaG> Betty, hi
09:23:17 <LindaG> Fat fingers again
09:23:43 <LindaG> Those icicles are getting g boring
09:24:12 <Betty> :-p
09:26:33 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty, LindaG
09:26:45 <LindaG> Dave from B™, hi
09:29:04 <LindaG> So now what? Lol
09:29:34 <Betty> Dome ie
09:29:41 <LindaG> Yay
09:30:36 <Betty> we had a pretty day here today. Blue skies and nice t-shirt temps
09:31:23 <LindaG> That sounds lovely, coolly here 40s
09:31:34 <LindaG> Lol chilly
09:34:43 <KorbenC> Nice weather here too, great t-shirt weather, partly cloudy, 54F, light wind. Great weather.
09:35:02 <LindaG> Well I had an exciting night in emergency room. Hubbie had emergency surgery this morning
09:35:20 <KorbenC> uhoh? That does not sound good :(
09:35:41 <LindaG> It turned out ok
09:35:52 <KorbenC> Hopefully no lasting effects.
09:36:01 <lori lurking Je> what surgery?
09:36:06 <LindaG> Hopefully
09:36:19 <LindaG> He had a strangulated hernia
09:36:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :P No fun.
09:36:42 <KorbenC> Thats not good, did it tear?
09:37:20 <Eric> Sorry to hear that Linda :-(
09:37:31 <LindaG> They were able to fix, dont know about tear.
09:37:45 <Betty> oh, glad he´s doing fine again
09:37:50 <Dave from B™> Sorry, LindaG. Hope recovery is quick.
09:37:50 <LindaG> I have to go see him soon
09:38:12 <KorbenC> Then probably not :D Tears are very dangerous, but it doesnt seem like one happened.
09:38:24 <LindaG> Hes very lucky you can lose your bowel from that
09:38:35 <LindaG> Aside from killing you
09:38:54 <KorbenC> I really wanted to make a joke there, but I refrained :)
09:39:02 <Dave from B™> Korben, tears are never dangerous:D
09:39:04 <KorbenC> not about the killing, about the bowel.
09:39:16 <LindaG> KorbenC, 😃
09:39:55 <Dave from B™> I was referring to tears from your eyes if that sound insensitive
09:40:03 <Dave from B™> My apologies
09:40:25 <LindaG> It's ok I up for a laugh
09:40:32 <Eric> I got what you were saying Dave :-D
09:40:34 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, I know, I was trying to come up with a good comeback, I was thinking about crying so much that you flood a socket, and then die from electrecution, but that was too much.
09:40:50 <LindaG> Geez
09:41:04 <Dave from B™> Linda, had he been having symptoms or did it hit him suddenly
09:41:34 <LindaG> He had symptoms just a very stubborn man that wont go to doctors
09:42:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Gee, I can't imagine someone like that!
09:42:42 <Dave from B™> That's not unusual:)
09:42:48 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, lol
09:43:38 <lori lurking Je> well, now recovery, which is usually as bad for the caretaker as the patient. In my experience anyway ;)
09:43:51 <LindaG> Like he doesnt have a doctor, takes no meds
09:44:16 <LindaG> lori lurking Jenna's mom, yeah not looking forward to it
09:44:38 <KorbenC> lori lurking Jenna's mom, if not harder on the caretaker, trust me, I know, lol.
09:44:51 <LindaG> Maybe he learned a lesson, ha!
09:44:52 <lori lurking Je> Linda, you can have adult beverages as you are not on pain meds :D
09:45:17 <LindaG> 🙂🍷🍷🍷🍷
09:45:26 <lori lurking Je> I find the ice in a margarita helps when I spend time biting my tongue...
09:45:37 <KorbenC> Linda: Force him to go outside! It works.
09:45:55 <Dave from B™> haha
09:46:16 <LindaG> lori lurking Jenna's mom, I'll try that 🙂
09:47:15 <Betty> lol, lori lurking Jenna's mom
09:59:08 <LindaG> Well bbl going to see hubbie
09:59:46 <Betty> best wishes for him!
10:04:47 <Betty> Dome
10:06:42 <Betty> OF
10:07:43 <pink> is anyone having problems views this site
10:08:03 <KorbenC> cam is dead
10:08:10 <pink> thanks
10:15:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> K is beautiful this morning: https://www.feratel.com/en/webcams/germany/berchtesgaden.html
10:17:56 <KorbenC> some weirdo is wandering around outside, lol.
10:43:49 <Betty> bbl
10:45:29 <JarnoO> morning all
10:48:23 <KorbenC> Jarno, I knew it :D
10:48:25 <KorbenC> And Hey
10:51:26 <Dave from B™> Has anyone here been following Bear 399 in GTNP?
10:58:12 <kc (working)> sounds dangerous
10:58:35 <Dave from B™> haha
10:59:19 <Dave from B™> Sow and 4 cubs have wandered south into more populated area and gotten into beehives, compost and livestock feed. That will not end well for this group of bears
11:02:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There were 2 beehives in the dead tree behind our Zion house. My Son was inside when the tree cutters found them. Says there were bees all around and some excited workers. Wish he would have taken video.
11:03:10 <JarnoO> would've loved to see that video, Kevin :)
11:03:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Me too.
11:04:01 <Dave from B™> yeah...bees make everyone jumpy
11:04:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I guess the tree was dripping honey all the way to the dump. Glad we hired people to take it out.
11:04:10 <KorbenC> lol
11:04:59 <Eric> Tree trimmers always carry lots of raid :-P
11:05:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> None of us had any idea it was loaded.
11:10:51 <Dave from B™> Off to get my ears lowered. Enjoy the spinning circle.
11:14:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> they are doing something with the crane Eric.
11:20:42 <Eric> Did they finish the pan replacements Kevin?
11:21:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not sure. Looks like they are loading the old pans to haul them away
11:22:14 <Eric> Yep, guess they are done!
11:22:21 <Eric> crossover and pans in place.
11:22:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Some track panels on the ground. They may be old. They were welding track this morning.
11:23:15 <Eric> ohh nice, guess that cam will be more train than construction cam now :-D
11:25:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They were doing some work on the Loop but UP gets excited if they zoom in on the workers. They like to keep a good relationship so they honor the request.
11:45:45 <Eric> Yep, totally understand it's a privacy issue. Just like the cam here.
11:46:16 <Eric> It's probably also a legal issue for UP, having video footage of work done can later be used in court.
11:48:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Frankly I wish they would put a flyer in the package you get at the gate that says "Trails are subject to manned video surveillance. Any illegal activity will be reported and prosecuted". Don't have to tell them there is (was?) only one cam.
11:50:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You can legally use the cam if it is off UP property but UP has been cooperative and allowed them some great footage. They report illegal activity to UP Police and help in other ways so it is a win win situation.
11:51:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It will be interesting to see when the first train crosses the high line.
11:52:39 <Eric> Yes, I don't think zooming on law breakers is an issue here Kevin, it's just general tourists as a courtesy.
11:52:55 <Eric> OF?
11:53:20 <Eric> yep, ie 1146
11:53:26 <Eric> ohh, nevermind on GT :-P
11:53:54 <Eric> Jarno just didn't mention it here....he is so sneaky!
11:54:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We can zoom in on law breakers but if there was a sign like that at Midway and Norris there may be less issues.
11:55:26 <JarnoO> I usually don't mention Fluffball anymore, since it's so prominently in view. The other ones not so much usually
11:55:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We were thinking of getting this sign for our Zion property: https://www.roadtrafficsigns.com/fos/i-own-firearms-and-a-backhoe-no-trespassing-sign/sku-k-0313
11:57:03 <JarnoO> I like "Warning! Trespassers may be used for scientific experiments" :)
11:57:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Train on highline
11:57:48 <Eric> It's zion, be more creative :-P
11:58:04 <Eric> Trespassers will be escorted off the nearest Arch!
11:58:49 <Eric> Or just be friendly and say welcome to Zion :-D
12:01:07 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, might want to add tannerite to the sign ☺
12:02:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How about this one Eric? https://www.roadtrafficsigns.com/fos/trespassers-will-be-mistaken-for-deer-sign/sku-k-0971
12:03:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The one sign is for the neighbor who seems to think he owns our property.
12:08:02 <JarnoO> evening Betty
12:08:24 <Betty> evening Jarno
12:08:46 <Betty> how´s your hubby doing, Linda?
12:09:48 <Eric> Crush them with kindness Kevin...love thy neighbor!
12:13:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> These guys require a proctologist to get a complete physical. TOTAL jerks. Been nothing but a hassle for the last 40 years. I would be happy to supply the with a 6'x3'x6'deep parcel.
12:18:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Manifest coming to the Loop Linda.
12:19:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Grainer on the highline. Moving faster than that coal drag!
12:21:31 <Eric> They move some huge coal through there.
12:21:38 <Dave from B™> What is a manifest?
12:22:00 <Dave from B™> If you want to see big coal trains come to my backyard:)
12:22:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Mixed freight.
12:22:08 <Dave from B™> Thanks
12:23:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I love watching the train run under itself. Better in person.
12:24:06 <Eric> I bet Dave, Some of those coal trains that run through nebraska seem to never end!
12:25:53 <Dave from B™> Usually 100-110 cars including 3 engines
12:26:14 <Dave from B™> I have counted 125 before
12:26:35 <Eric> The ones moving through Kansas are double stacked!
12:26:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BNSF runs trains up to 15,000 feet long
12:27:12 <Eric> I swear I have seen longer ones Kevin in nebraska :-P
12:28:32 <Eric> So I assume 15000 ft is aprox 150 cars
12:30:02 <Eric> Without looking, any guesses to the length of the longest train ever and what country it is in?
12:32:32 <Dave from B™> I would guess Russia...18750 feet
12:32:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think Australia would be a good choice
12:33:02 <JarnoO> Australia's trains get pretty long too. South Africa too I think
12:34:20 <Eric> Good Guesses! Australia, Iron Ore loads of 682 cars @ 23950 ft long!
12:34:38 <Eric> 8 engines distributed throughout the load to deal with stresses and turns
12:35:12 <Eric> So not sure if I would really call it one train, since they had engines in the middle.
12:35:36 <JarnoO> imagine waiting at a railroad crossing for a train 7.3km long...
12:35:51 <Dave from B™> wow
12:35:52 <Eric> Carrying almost 100k tonnes of load!
12:36:30 <Eric> That would be a long wait Jarno, but probably not a huge issue in the middle of the outback!
12:36:38 <JarnoO> true
12:36:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Cars always tell the whole story. Autoracks are 89' and some tank cars are only 30'. Double stacks use articulated cars quite a bit. They have 1 well, 3 wells, or 5 wells. The 5 well and 3 well cars count as one car.
12:36:43 <Eric> Kangaroos have to pause :-P
12:37:00 <Eric> ahhh, interesting
12:37:40 <Dave from B™> I learn something here every day!
12:38:07 <Eric> Longest one in the US is run by Kansas City Southern, 15518 ft
12:38:49 <Dave from B™> I would imagine flat states allow bigger trains?
12:40:03 <Eric> African train station - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longest_trains#/media/File:SNIM_ore_train_Nouadhibou.jpg
12:40:40 <Eric> I imagine it's up to the operator Dave, what the track and train can safely move.
12:40:51 <JarnoO> so going by that, Kevin, this trainset would count as one car? https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a8/SNG_Flirt.jpg
12:41:13 <Dave from B™> I would count that as 3 cars
12:41:30 <Eric> I would count it as one Train, I see no cars :-P
12:41:39 <JarnoO> that was my thinking too, Dave
12:42:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It would depend on the country, but yes.
12:43:45 <JarnoO> fun how it differs per country. Here it counts as three cars (even in it's commonly-used name - FLIRT-III), though as far as I know articulated cargo cars count as one
12:45:42 <Dave from B™> Kevin, have you been to Tehachapi in person?
12:48:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes I have. It is a lot of fun.
12:49:16 <Dave from B™> I might be passing thru there in Feb/Mar
12:49:34 <Eric> Rain/Snow on static coming down
12:50:41 <Eric> Don't forget, there is a button in the Settings to the right that allows to move the static webcam to the main panel above this chat.
12:52:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Worth a stop Dave. There is a great vantage point on top of the hill. Caliente CA is also a neat spot with a great horseshoe curve. A few miles north of the Loop/
12:54:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Load of sailboat fuel coming up the Loop Linda
12:57:54 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the info, Kevin
12:58:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I can give you more details if you decide to go. Do you have a radio scanner?
12:59:06 <Dave from B™> No
12:59:22 <Dave from B™> Except for my frs radios for YNP:)
13:29:56 <ynpvisitor71> SB at 1612
13:34:34 <Dave from B™> That's awful exact
13:38:15 <JarnoO> SB seems to have had some good action today based on the latest logger upload
13:39:20 <JarnoO> so ±1612 isn't that bad of a prediction
13:39:36 <KorbenC> I saw SB at 1613 :P
13:39:51 <KorbenC> with right to change it before 1613 :D
13:41:00 <Dave from B™> I'm going to stick with my guess earlier of late this evening or tomorrow...let's say 2000-1000
13:51:29 <Ranger Wolf> Will be at Norris for some measurements tomorrow AM for a little while, fingers crossed for a walk up!
13:52:46 <Betty> cool, hope you are lucky...again
13:53:04 <KorbenC> Thanks Wolf, enjoy!
13:53:14 <KorbenC> Any news on the Giantess logger?
13:53:44 <Dave from B™> Good luck Ranger Wolf!
13:59:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have you ever been to Mesa Verde Dave?
14:01:19 <Dave from B™> No, but it is on the radar for 2022 or 2023 when we cover SW CO and Northern NM
14:02:03 <Dave from B™> I've always wanted to travel in that area
14:02:56 <Betty> I have been there
14:03:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not too far from the rock parks in Utah. Durango and Silverton are fun but there isn't a set of pampers big enough to drive a motorhome from Silverton to Ouray.
14:03:13 <Dave from B™> Did you like it, Betty?
14:03:29 <Dave from B™> I will do it:)
14:03:41 <Betty> yes, pretty interesting
14:03:44 <Dave from B™> Our van is only 21' long
14:04:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I drove a 4 door Subaru sedan and it was scary.
14:04:36 <Dave from B™> I'm assuming tours are necesary at Mesa Verde; that's why I'm waiting after COVID risks diminish
14:06:07 <Ranger Wolf> No news on giantess logger, working to get it accessible as we speak
14:06:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There is an Indian hut in Zion but they don't publish the location.
14:08:03 <Dave from B™> There is a lot to see in the SW
14:08:18 <Dave from B™> I really want to go to Carlsbad Caverns
14:09:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is a fun place. It is sort of like the Old Faithful of caves.
14:10:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good museums in Roswell too. Even have a moon rock!
14:10:56 <Dave from B™> Nice
14:11:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 3 trains at once in KC
14:12:05 <Dave from B™> Always wanted to see the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Festival, too
14:13:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We used to have one of those here but not anymore.
14:14:00 <Dave from B™> We had one in Billings in the 80s and 90s. It was fun
14:14:56 <Dave from B™> Cow on loop cam
14:15:24 <L> Dave from B™, cow?
14:15:53 <Dave from B™> Yep...I'll get you the link
14:16:04 <Dave from B™> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0glSbcqM1o
14:16:14 <Dave from B™> They aren't focused on the cow any longer:)
14:17:09 <L> That's new
14:17:37 <Dave from B™> Linda?
14:23:31 <JarnoO> wow... That was a very, very fast penalty for the Netherlands. Almost like a rocket! 1-1 against Poland, so it was very welcome :)
14:23:53 <JarnoO> Now 1-1*
14:25:55 <L> Yes
14:26:25 <Dave from B™> I thought so:)
14:26:37 <Linda> 😊
14:26:43 <Dave from B™> How is your other half doing?:)
14:27:39 <Linda> Well I'm staring at him. He is ok, awake and complaining about the nurses
14:27:44 <JarnoO> haha
14:27:51 <Linda> So I guess he's ok
14:27:54 <KorbenC> lol
14:28:17 <Linda> I've heard every detail
14:28:27 <KorbenC> Sounds alot like my mom when she was in the hospital, "gosh, how many of them do I need!" lol
14:28:45 <Linda> Yup
14:28:51 <JarnoO> Yay! 2-1 for the Netherlands now!
14:33:11 <Eric> He probably has a case of GOMS
14:33:17 <Eric> It's common in hospitals.
14:33:38 <Linda> Ok I'll bite, what's that?
14:33:53 <KorbenC> Linda, you are lucky they let you go in, most hospitals in CO will kick you out.
14:34:14 <Linda> KorbenC, 8am to 8pm
14:34:44 <Linda> KorbenC, Oh you mean because of covid?
14:34:54 <KorbenC> yes
14:34:57 <Eric> Grumpy Old Man Syndrome :-P
14:35:17 <Linda> Eric, of for sure, he's terrible
14:35:27 <Linda> *oh
14:35:29 <Eric> We all get it, not our faults
14:35:30 <Dave from B™> haha but is he complaining about the food?
14:35:43 <Eric> Who doesn't at the hospital?
14:35:47 <Dave from B™> NOT ME, NEVER!:D
14:35:53 <Eric> Hospital food sucks
14:35:56 <Linda> Dave from B™, He can't eat or drink yet 🙁
14:35:59 <Eric> At least the ones around here.
14:36:00 <Dave from B™> so bland
14:36:23 <Eric> My wife was in the hospital for 11 weeks before our daughter was born!
14:36:37 <Eric> almost 3 months of living in that hospital with her.
14:36:41 <Dave from B™> yikes
14:36:55 <Eric> Yep, it was a long process for us.
14:37:09 <Linda> Yikes is right
14:37:11 <Eric> But she has made it to college, so it didn't turn out too bad.
14:37:26 <Dave from B™> Did you take a picture of that hospital bill?
14:37:28 <Eric> She was born early, but she is late to everything :-P
14:37:48 <Linda> I've spent more than my fair share of time in hospital not for me but others
14:37:57 <Eric> Luckily I had good insurance...we probably had 2000 pages of hospital bills, I didn't even begin to read them.
14:38:00 <Linda> *my fair
14:38:23 <Linda> Oh dear
14:39:06 <Eric> It was fairly cheap stay as we lived in the maternity ward, which was kind of fun seeing new moms every day :-D
14:39:43 <Linda> ☺ nice
14:40:18 <Eric> more or less they just need us to have fast access to the delivery room 24/7 and the maternity ward was the easiest place to do it.
14:40:29 <Linda> no babies here haha
14:40:48 <Eric> The funny part is they ended up having to induce her :-P
14:41:16 <Eric> well, they probably didn't have to, but it made the most sense to plan the process.
14:43:24 <Betty> enjoy the rest of your day, night all
14:43:35 <Eric> night Betty
14:51:09 <Dave from B™> nite Betty
14:52:01 <Dave from B™> I was born 4 weeks early after my mom had lost 4 babies prior. My outlook on life has always been....I feel lucky to be here.
14:52:30 <Dave from B™> It's part of the reason for my deranged sense of humor
14:53:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had a friend that was 2lbs when she was born. They kept her in a shoebox lined with cotton.
14:53:22 <Eric> oh wow...you were lucky baby!
14:53:23 <Dave from B™> wow...that's tiny
14:53:40 <Eric> Yep, our daughter was 2lbs 8oz
14:53:47 <Eric> tiny
14:54:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This one was early 1959. Not many that small survived.
14:54:11 <Eric> ohh, that might be wrong, maybe 4lbs 8oz now that I start actually using my brain.
14:54:23 <Eric> wow kevin, they were lucky
14:54:44 <Eric> premature birth has come so far in the last 20 years!
14:55:00 <Eric> babies can be born really early and still survive.
14:55:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My wife did a lot of labor and delivery.
14:55:28 <Eric> Nice...I love labor and delivery nurses!
14:55:41 <Eric> Firm, but caring
14:57:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> She can be brutal at home but now she is on the other end she has a bit different attitude.
15:01:04 <Dave from B™> Well,
15:01:13 <Dave from B™> I hope she has a fast recovery
15:01:42 <Dave from B™> Time for me to head out. In laws have a load of stuff from GF that needs to go into our empty garage. Have a great evening everyone!
15:01:49 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Dave
15:01:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night Dave
15:06:33 <Linda> Night dave
15:09:44 <Eric> Night Dave
15:09:50 <JarnoO> cya Dave
15:19:20 <KorbenC> Hey Emily
15:20:26 <EmilyW> howdy
15:27:03 <JarnoO> some swarming behavior in Kilauea's caldera today. Also some shaking on Mauna Loa's "wrong" side (just NW of the caldera, where you don't want quakes as that may prelude an eruption), but all appears nominal regardless
15:28:57 <JarnoO> (also, am not a volcanologist, so take it with a pinch of salt, really. HVO is the authority to go to)
15:43:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> its Boat tie
15:43:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> time
15:53:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> last 3 intervals were 7d something and we are at 7 day something
16:41:36 <JarnoO> off for the day. Enjoy Staticky McStaticface
16:42:00 <KorbenC> Bye Jarno, enjoy your evening.
16:42:22 <Eric> Bye Jarno
18:42:12 <Linda> Those darn icicles are still there
18:43:16 <KorbenC> Yup
18:43:28 <KorbenC> If someone were to fix the cam :P
18:43:48 <Linda> KorbenC, hi
18:44:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> At least put a good still of BH with a rainbow.
18:44:54 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, exactly
18:45:05 <Linda> That would be nice
18:57:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> How is your husband doing?
18:57:45 <Linda> He seems to be ok
18:57:51 <Linda> Thx
18:57:59 <KorbenC> Thats good.
18:58:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably unhappy about being in bed.
18:58:32 <Linda> Yeah, he hates hospitals
18:58:52 <KorbenC> Is he eating yet?
18:59:00 <Linda> But he was amazed how quickly they took care of things
18:59:06 <Linda> KorbenC, no
18:59:34 <KorbenC> Well, its almost better not to eat then to eat that gag worthy food, hehe.
19:00:17 <Linda> They put a tube Into his stomach so he couldnt have anything 😕
19:00:31 <KorbenC> thats not good.
19:01:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They had some good food at one of Dad's hospitals, but another one was low grade dog food.
19:02:05 <Linda> I didnt get any food over there so I'm not sure how it is.
19:02:32 <Linda> Might be better than my cooking lol
19:02:42 <KorbenC> HAHA
19:03:22 <Forestbewithyou> Hi everyone
19:03:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had to learn how to cook to survive so I am not too bad.
19:03:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
19:03:28 <Linda> Forestbewithyou, hi
19:03:43 <KorbenC> Hi Forest
19:03:48 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, 🙂
19:05:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Purple haze is lacking tonight.
19:06:23 <Linda> Bummer
19:08:45 <Forestbewithyou> So swim team is now delayed in person again.
19:09:03 <Linda> 😕
19:09:17 <KorbenC> I dont even know why they chose to try to do it on time in the first place, IMHO.
19:09:36 <Forestbewithyou> Its all due to a new emergency order put in by our county
19:14:36 <Linda> The last 24 hrs I've been living on Costco apple pie 😃
19:14:47 <KorbenC> YUM
19:14:56 <Forestbewithyou> I have never had it but it sounds good
19:15:05 <Linda> It is good
19:15:24 <Forestbewithyou> I will take your word for it :D
19:16:00 <KorbenC> Forest, you have never had costco apple pie?
19:16:16 <Forestbewithyou> Nope
19:16:41 <KorbenC> Forest, have you ever been to Costco?
19:16:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> About as big as a large pizza. Goes good with caramel sauce.
19:17:02 <KorbenC> oh, their pizzas are awesome.
19:17:29 <Linda> Yum pizza
19:17:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I liked the Hebrew National hot dogs better than the ones they have now though.
19:17:57 <Linda> They do have some good stuff
19:17:59 <Forestbewithyou> Yea I don't think I have ever been to Costco lol
19:18:17 <KorbenC> Forest, do you have a life? lol
19:18:55 <Forestbewithyou> I think so...
19:19:06 <KorbenC> really?
19:19:08 <Linda> I'm lucky because I have a Costco about 2 miles away
19:19:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Cashews are awesome.
19:19:38 <Linda> I buy their walnuts
19:19:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hearing aids are great too.
19:19:41 <KorbenC> I have a Costco about 5 miles away, very lucky.
19:20:06 <Forestbewithyou> The nearest one is about 45-60 min away
19:20:20 <KorbenC> I can go geat over easy/urban egg (if anyone ever comes to COS, I highly recommend it, its awesome) and then go to costco, get free samples, lol.
19:20:22 <Linda> Some people have to travel an hour, not sure I'd so that
19:20:54 <Linda> Mine no longer has free samples cause of covid
19:21:22 <KorbenC> I havent been to Costco since Janurary because of COVID.
19:21:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is worth it if you don't go every week. Now that the kids are gone I don't shop there as much.
19:21:54 <Linda> Oh I buy milk, etc there so I go often
19:22:08 <KorbenC> Costco needs to sell fishing supplies.
19:22:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> One of my friends used the free samples for lunch a lot.
19:22:36 <Linda> I think alot of people used to do that
19:22:39 <KorbenC> I would buy a pallet of power bait any day.
19:22:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is called Bass Pro Shops Korben!
19:22:49 <Linda> A lot of salt though
19:23:01 <Forestbewithyou> lol
19:23:30 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, oh, I go there often :) But, they have a 10 power bait limit!
19:24:14 <KorbenC> And we catch so many fish (when the lake is open) that the people on the other side of the shore that dont ahve boats to get over to where we are, are very jealous :)
19:24:23 <KorbenC> We go through about 4 things of powerbait per fishing day, haha.
19:24:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am just glad I stocked up on .22 ammo. Impossible to find now.
19:25:00 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, Really, how come?
19:26:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Once the riots started there was a run on all ammo. Can't get ammo for my 9mm either.
19:28:20 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, huh. I know someone said that the gun store by me picked right before the election
19:28:41 <Linda> I dont own a gun, so no,idea
19:29:00 <Forestbewithyou> I am going to head out. Night everyone
19:29:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That too. I know there is going to be problems for a long time.
19:29:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night.
19:29:15 <Linda> Forestbewithyou, night
19:29:19 <KorbenC> Night Forest
19:39:13 <Linda> Oh no one has caught an aurum on static 😕
19:39:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Betty did once yesterday
19:40:52 <Linda> Oh good
19:41:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am hoping one of Dave's fixes will work.
19:42:03 <Linda> Hope so
19:42:18 <Linda> Its crazy
19:42:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This could have been the issue all the time. Fingers crossed it fixes it.
19:43:48 <Linda> Yup, for sure
19:50:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 4 pumpkins, no haze :(
19:51:03 <Linda> 😕
19:51:14 <Linda> Flagstaff?
19:51:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes
19:52:46 <Linda> Why is jarno, poor jarno?
20:00:23 <KorbenC> What about JO?
20:00:55 <KorbenC> wow, we are the only 3 here.
20:01:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We must be really bored.
20:01:09 <KorbenC> Oh, was "Poor Jarno."
20:01:22 <KorbenC> oh no, now I feel bad, lol.
20:01:28 <Linda> I dont know came on as poor jarno, but didnt answer me
20:03:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 4 pumpkins, no haze
20:03:29 <KorbenC> I am thinking it wasnt Jarno. :)
20:04:24 <Linda> Oh ok, possibility
20:04:37 <KorbenC> I saw, "Jarno" and thought that since I was away, and he left, SB decided to pop up on seismo, and you needed one of us to confirm/deny.
20:04:43 <Linda> Still no haze 😕
20:05:28 <Linda> Ah
20:15:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think I will pass on this one: https://www.economycandy.com/product/fried-chicken-candy/
20:15:40 <KorbenC> thats odd looking..
20:16:40 <Linda> That's disgusting lol
20:17:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Here is one for Dave: https://www.economycandy.com/product/lobster-candy/
20:17:44 <Linda> Haha equally disgusting
20:18:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :p https://www.economycandy.com/product/mac-cheese-candy/
20:19:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Who thinks of these things?
20:19:14 <KorbenC> eww
20:19:43 <Linda> KorbenC, my reaction exactly 😝
20:20:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Now these are awesome. I went through a ton of them in Germany and they STILL don't make them here. https://www.economycandy.com/product/german-haribo-primavera-erdbeeren-candy-coated-foam-strawberries/
20:21:04 <KorbenC> those are great
20:21:26 <KorbenC> I am lucky to have had a middle school french teacher who grew up in germany
20:21:48 <Linda> Hmmm sounds good
20:21:57 <KorbenC> Every fall she brought back ALOT of german candy, its a good way to keep 6th and 7th graders attention.
20:22:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That would be fun. Did she bring Lebkuchen for Christmas?
20:22:33 <KorbenC> Ony for French/German cooking club :D
20:22:36 <Linda> Gotta find some pffeffernusse
20:23:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Trader Joes for both Linda.
20:24:34 <Linda> Oh good. My grocery store will have the cookies soon I think. Sadly closest trader Joe is an hour away
20:24:42 <KorbenC> Kevin, she made us some Flammkuchen, it was SOOOO good.
20:25:24 <KorbenC> I think we also had some Maultaschen that day.
20:26:05 <KorbenC> She was a spectacular teacher, wish she would come to my high school to teach :)
20:27:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I always like the local German food. Bread is incredible.
20:28:32 <Linda> Good stuff my grandmother was from germany
20:32:23 <KorbenC> Well, have a good evening, might as well individualize it since there are only 3 of us :P Have a good night Linda, best wishes for your husband. Good night/evening Kevin, enjoy the train cams before Dave breaks them too.
20:33:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night. Will have to keep Dave away from the good train cams.
20:36:08 <Linda> KorbenC, thx have a good night
20:36:20 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, haha
20:39:25 <Linda> Well I think its bedtime, cya tomorrow. Nice the hospital has free wifi 👍
20:40:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night. Good luck. I remember the days in the hospitals with the wifi. Some were totally terrible, some were just bad.
20:41:18 <Linda> last one on turns out the lights 😃
20:41:36 <Linda> Night
20:55:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Turn out the lights, The party's over.....
