09:22:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You can see cloud level on Tehachapi cam 1 Dave.
09:23:42 <Dave from B™> Thanks Kevin
09:23:53 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric, Forest, kc
09:26:57 <Eric> Hi Dave
09:27:03 <Eric> Hi Betty
09:27:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The train on cam 1 should be on cam 2 shortly.
09:27:48 <Eric> Hello to Kevin & Forest too :-D
09:28:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
09:29:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I guess I can beat the crowds to the store since I won't be driving. bbl
09:29:35 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Eric
09:29:50 <Forestbewithyou> and Dave and Kevin
09:31:37 <Dave from B™> Eric, what hike do you have in store this weekend?
09:43:25 <Forestbewithyou> bbl
09:50:50 <Eric> Not sure yet Dave, might do a quick 8 miles tomorrow morning and than similar length hike on Saturday.
09:50:58 <Eric> Weather is going to be sunny the next 2 days.
09:55:55 <Dave from B™> haha...a "quick" 8 miles...I'm not hiking with you anymore:)
10:18:42 <Betty> Lion is ie
10:38:47 <Betty> OF
10:47:55 <null> Dave, you need dogs with long legs, not rats. Then you would be ready for hikes!
10:49:07 <null> Or get the rats hover boards for Christmas, so you can walk further then a block.
10:49:22 <Dave from B™> My oldest has to stop every 10 feet and try to scent territopry for 2 miles!!
10:50:02 <null> With a hover board it could wee on the fly
10:50:53 <null> One reason why I will not have a fire plug dog.
10:53:07 <null> Wonder what all they need to do in winter to clime the stairs up to the roof for repairs? They cancel flag tours when it rains because it is too dangerous.
10:54:25 <null> I cannot remember if the little door opens in or out. WOuld be next to impossible if it opened out and was drifted in.
10:56:37 <Dave from B™> And you would get a face full of snow if it opens in
10:57:03 <null> But it would open!
10:59:51 <null> Too bad there is not easy place to hide everything inside where it would be easy to get to. Not much up there though. The way it is all they need is power.
11:00:24 <null> Well, the circle is making me dizzzzyy, enjoy
11:02:56 <Dave from B™> Have a good day, null
11:09:07 <JarnoO> morning all
11:09:26 <Betty> evening JarnoO
11:10:02 <JarnoO> evening Betty
11:13:34 <Dave from B™> Uggh....prices of nitrile gloves are crazy stupid
11:14:00 <Dave from B™> Were $5/box of 100 last Jan. $9.00 in Sept, now $18.80
11:15:49 <Betty> wow
11:32:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Try to buy a roll of toilet paper in Las Vegas.
11:33:44 <Betty> didn´t you raise some in your yard in summer?
11:35:13 <Betty>
11:36:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Why didn't I think of that!
11:39:12 <Dave from B™> hahaha
11:40:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I wonder if that would work with 9mm and .22lr shells too.
11:41:42 <Dave from B™> Maybe, I'll plant some nitrile gloves
11:42:11 <Betty> :thumbsup::D
11:42:25 <Betty> you got it
12:08:36 <lori lurking Je> afternoon all
12:08:59 <Betty> hi Lori
12:09:03 <lori lurking Je> Just ordered Christmas seafood delivery- Rose was great! Thanks Dave!
12:09:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
12:12:49 <JarnoO> looks like static caught some preplay @ 1210
12:13:17 <Dave from B™> Your welcome, Lori. She does a great job.
12:17:57 <Betty> OF
12:18:02 <lori lurking Je> I needed talked through it. WHen she says "she just kept saying I don't know" she is telling the truth, lol
12:18:29 <lori lurking Je> Next time I plan to go out, I'll order so I can eat some!
12:19:20 <lori lurking Je> Christmas shopping and wrapping are favorites of mine, but this year, we just do what we can to spread the joy and not the germs I guess.
12:19:43 <Dave from B™> haha
12:20:22 <Dave from B™> Yes. Much different this year. It will make next holiday season that much more special.
12:21:16 <lori lurking Je> It does make us appreciate things that we took for granted.
12:21:26 <lori lurking Je> ANd miss things like the streaming cam even more!
12:21:30 <Dave from B™> Lori, very much so
12:29:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 2020 theme song:
12:32:56 <lori lurking Je> Played that LP often growing up! HAHA
12:35:58 <Dave from B™> Lori, I grew up not far from where your daughter lives....Sidney, MT
12:38:55 <lori lurking Je> really! She shops there sometimes, I have been a couple times with her! Nice little town. Rose knew where Whatford City & ALexander were!
12:39:09 <lori lurking Je> oops, typo's, lol
12:39:55 <lori lurking Je> I even looked at flying into Sidney, only 22 hours with layovers, lol
12:41:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Worse than Amtrak
12:42:40 <lori lurking Je> 15 hour drive from here, so I passed.
12:48:04 <Eric> Who broke SB?
12:51:11 <Dave from B™> Hit me:)
12:51:37 <Dave from B™> Rose has family in Dickenson
13:01:01 <JarnoO> all YVO loggers are nominal now. Vixen Soil is back up. Probably what ranger Wolf did in Norris among other things
13:07:20 <Eric> Mount Rainier is getting a huge snow base early this year! Current Situation:
13:07:56 <Eric> It's going to be sunny there on Saturday morning :-D I think I know where I will be trying to get to!
13:27:43 <Dave from B™> You should just go to Leavenworth:)
13:29:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I knew a guy that went to Leavenworth once.
13:30:54 <Dave from B™> Not that Leavenworth:)
13:31:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> He really didn't want to go there either.
13:31:54 <Dave from B™>
13:33:09 <Dave from B™> For those of us too far from the real Bavaria:)
13:48:31 <Dave from B™> It appears Sb is starting its winter lengthening of intervals
14:18:55 <Dave from B™> Time to shake the seismo!!!
14:20:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Now you are trying to break the seismo?
14:21:59 <Dave from B™> You probably have something to make the seismo shake:)
14:29:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Look for it on Monday
14:29:46 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I'n sure you are aware but several southern counties in Montana are trying to bring Amtrak back to Southern MT after being gone for 40 years
14:29:56 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure*
14:31:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It will be pretty hard now. Even the mainstays like the California Zephyr and the Southwest Chief which have gone from 7 days a week to 3 days a week.
14:33:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> One I think would go great is the LA to Las Vegas crap shooter commuter. No Amtrak but Virgin is finally doing it in a high speed mode on their own tracks. It was supposed to start construction this year, but.....
14:39:09 <Dave from B™> That would really help LV. Lots of gamblers make that weekend trip
14:39:36 <Dave from B™> Deep down, I think the southern counties want a piece of the 7 day route thru Northern MT
14:39:57 <Dave from B™> 90% of population would live near Southern Route compared to Northern Route
14:43:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You were asking about the well cars yesterday. Here is a good example:
14:44:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is one car but has 5 articulated compartments. The number on the top is the same as the bottom one, but each compartment is lettered A,B,C,D, or E.
14:47:24 <Dave from B™> It's amazing how many different types of rail cars exist
14:47:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Another tidbit of useless information is the reporting mark on it. It is a CSX car but they can't use CSX as a reporting mark so they are labeled CSXT (CSX Transportation). If a car has a reporting mark ending in an X then it is loadable by any railroad on a per diem basis.
14:49:25 <Dave from B™> interesting
14:50:00 <Dave from B™> Tankers on level 2 at KC
14:50:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Well cars come in 1,3, or 5 well models. The fewer wheels mean more efficiency. Autoracks are going to units with two racks on 3 trucks.
14:50:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Those are ethanol cars Dave.
15:01:13 <Betty> headed out, night all
15:01:31 <JarnoO> night Betty
15:02:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
15:02:24 <Forestbewithyou> Bye Betty
15:08:40 <JarnoO> Fluffy is early. And that for a long spanning 3-4 frames (usual length on static)
15:08:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Corn going the other way now Dave
15:14:11 <Dave from B™> Darn, I missed it
15:16:18 <Dave from B™> Well, time to head home. Have a great evening everyone! GO SEACHICKENS!!
15:16:24 <JarnoO> cya Dave
15:20:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night

16:33:03 <JarnoO> afternoon Linda
16:33:13 <Linda> JarnoO, hey
16:33:22 <Forestbewithyou> I am doing well. Just got done watching a nice sunset. You?
16:33:54 <Linda> Oh nice. Oh just waking g up fro nap, long day at hospital
16:34:15 <Linda> JarnoO, how ya doing?
16:34:43 <Forestbewithyou> I will be back in a bit.

16:38:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I remember those. :p
16:38:22 <JarnoO> Linda, am doing fine
16:38:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> tough on both parties.
16:40:42 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi, yeah not good all the way around. They got him up to walk and his mood improved. 👍
16:41:40 <Linda> JarnoO, 👍
16:42:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That helps.
16:42:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> With my Dad it was one step forward two steps back.
16:43:53 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, 😕 that's hard
16:44:48 <Linda> I was quite surprised how getting him up changed his mood. I think maybe he thought he was done for 😕
16:46:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably just felt good to move.
16:46:46 <Linda> Yeah
16:47:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just watched a train go through Canmore. Pretty mountains.
16:48:14 <Linda> Where is canmore?
16:48:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> West of Calgary Canada.
16:49:10 <Linda> Oh nice
16:49:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
16:51:05 <Linda> Beautiful and there goes a train
16:52:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like the Tetons on steroids.
16:52:29 <Linda> 😃 it sure does
16:55:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was supposed to be there last month. :(
16:58:59 <Linda> Bummer, is that where train was going?
16:59:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Heading to Vancover most likely.
17:00:20 <Linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, oh I meant were you taking train there last month?
17:06:39 <JarnoO> off for the day. Enjoy the static
17:06:44 <JarnoO> maybe catch an Aurum
17:06:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was going to fly. No train that way to ride. We were going to go to Kicking Horse Pass andsee the Spiral Tunnels.
17:08:29 <Linda> Oh nice that would have been fun. Darn covid
17:53:51 <Forestbewithyou> I am going to head out. Night everyone!
17:57:14 <Linda> Forestbewithyou, night
18:35:27 <KorbenC> Linda, (if you are still here) is this too wordy? "Moreover, by showing that Jack believes he can eradicate the beast, he persuades that the children must conform to his ideals. He uses his authority to order the children around on their uneasiness. Also, because he hopes he can manage the beast, he can control the young’ uns fear"
18:35:45 <KorbenC> Part of the essay I am working on, your opinion would be helpful, that sentance just seems odd.
18:36:35 <Linda> It is odd
18:36:44 <Linda> 🙂
18:36:46 <KorbenC> The rest of the essay reads really well, that part just seems off.
18:37:19 <Linda> Let me think
18:37:21 <KorbenC> I am talking about how Jack in Lord of the Flies = dictator, any advice on what I should do to that set of sentances?
18:38:11 <KorbenC> maybe I should do, "to his ideals; and, he uses" it seems like that would work better reading it, but still something is off.
18:40:00 <Linda> Think about the most important point first
18:40:57 <Linda> Haha I've never read the book
18:41:01 <KorbenC> The most important point is that Jack thinks he can eradicate the beast (the teacher said I couldn't just say "Jack can eradicate" lol. Then the result of that is him ording the children around with it.
18:41:38 <KorbenC> Is it too wordy of a sentence? Is it the grammar that is odd? If I can get an idea of what is weird I can figure out how to fix it, haha.
18:43:09 <Linda> Jack believes he can eradicate the beast and persuades the children to conform to his beliefs, and in so doing is able to exert control over the children
18:43:37 <KorbenC> That rolls of the toung better, thanks :)
18:43:46 <Linda> Is that what you are trying to say?
18:43:51 <KorbenC> YES
18:44:13 <Linda> 👍
18:44:21 <KorbenC> I figured out what I did wrong, periods without transisions messes it up, I am going to get rid of some of those preiods and just make it one sentance :D
18:44:22 <KorbenC> Thank you!
18:44:35 <Linda> Yw
18:48:03 <Linda> You could change the last children in sentence to 'them'
18:48:33 <KorbenC> :thumbsup::D
18:48:38 <Linda> 'Exert control over them'
18:52:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Great haze at 1850:45 Linda
18:53:24 <Linda> 🙂
18:53:33 <Linda> Flagstaff?
18:53:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes
18:58:33 <Linda> Nice that was pretty bright
19:27:05 <KorbenC> Well, have agood night everyone. I will be watching the seismo until I go to bed in about 2 hours, so SB wont escape today :)
19:27:41 <LJG> KorbenC, night
19:27:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
20:34:29 <LJG> Night
