08:01:48 <KorbenT(urkey)> Happy thanksgiving all of you (there are so many of you! :P) Forest, Kitty, Terry.
08:05:28 <🦃🦃Forestb> Happy thanksgiving to you too Korben and everyone else
08:55:06 <JarnoO> morning all
08:55:20 <KorbenT(urkey)> Hey Jarno
08:58:24 <JarnoO> Geysers of Yellowstone mentions that the reason for the features named "Catfish" are unclear. I found something that should be able to clear that up for both in a weird way: "a geyser in the Giant Group, Upper Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Resembles catfish mouth; this name was applied by Hague Party to a geyser in Lower Geyser Basin."
08:58:33 <JarnoO> Dated January 27, 1937
08:59:10 <JarnoO> and decision itself was made on June 15, 1937
09:01:45 <JarnoO> https://geonames.usgs.gov/apex/f?p=138%3A3%3A%3A%3ANO%3A3%3AP3_FID%2CP3_TITLE%3A1848507%2CCatfish%20Geyser
09:01:54 <JarnoO> if you want to read it yourself :)
09:04:55 <JarnoO> that also indicates you need to literally be on top of the formation to see its catfish mouth or whatever is left of it after more than 100 years
09:05:00 <LindaG> Morning. HAPPY TURKEY DAY!
09:05:07 <KorbenT(urkey)> Morning Linda, happy thanksgiving
09:05:23 <LindaG> KorbenT(urkey), hi
09:05:34 <kc (working)> OF
09:05:41 <KorbenT(urkey)> kc (working), hey
09:05:48 <🦃🦃Forestb> Hi Linda and Jarno
09:05:56 <LindaG> 🦃🦃Forestbewithyou🦃🦃, hi
09:06:12 <kc (working)> mornin
09:06:54 <LindaG> kc (working), hi
09:07:01 <🦃🦃Forestb> Happy Thanksgiving
09:07:26 <LindaG> 🦃🦃Forestbewithyou🦃🦃, gobble gobble
09:16:53 <JarnoO> This is peculiar. The naming reason stated by GNIS is that Silver Globe was named because of its cone. So according to GNIS, the cone between Avoca and the current Silver Globe is the actual Silver Globe... This gets more and more confusing. SF would love it
09:17:38 <JarnoO> and I do have to say the cone does have a silvery-white appearance
09:26:27 <JarnoO> time to make dinner
09:52:47 <LindaG> HAPPY T-Day Kevin
09:56:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And you too!
09:59:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You about have dinner ready?
10:06:58 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, I cooked last night, so leftovers today yum
10:07:36 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, who is cooking by you?
10:08:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I will do most of it. Made rolls last night. Only 2 of us so we are just doing a turkey breast.
10:09:23 <LindaG> That's what I did, Turkey Breast, just the two of us
10:09:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The hardest thing is peeling the pomegrante.
10:10:18 <LindaG> 🙂 pomegranate for what?
10:11:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dixie Salad. Pomegrante, apples, bananas, & pecans mixed in whipped cream.
10:12:14 <LindaG> Yum
10:13:05 <LindaG> I'm still working on that Costco apple pie, it freezes well
10:16:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A costco pie can last weeks if you don't have a lot of people.
10:22:32 <LindaG> It's true 🙂 yum
10:24:00 <LindaG> Ever buy their cranberry walnut bread? That's another good one
10:24:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes
10:25:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have some dried cranberries. Going to make oatmeal walnut cookies with those instead of raisins.
10:28:39 <LindaG> Nice
10:34:44 <kc (working)> OF
10:43:31 <LindaG> Wow lake looks awesome
11:13:31 <JarnoO> morning KevinS
11:13:39 <JarnoO> happy turkey day
11:13:57 <KevinS> Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving to all
11:17:20 <KevinS> LindaG, We have a local bakery that simply makes the worlds best cranberry walnut bread. I just so happen to have bought a loaf. Thanks for the reminder...
11:55:32 <JarnoO> this is fun: on October 9, 1998, Beehive erupted at midnight sharp. So the entrant in the log logged it @ 2400:00 on October 8 :)
12:07:54 <kc (working)> OF
12:16:42 <KorbenT(urkey)> Gret, another one of my freinds just got a positive COVID test, no symptoms, but was in close contact with someone who has it, hopefully he stays asymptomatic, but still, no good :( :(
12:25:40 <JarnoO> sorry to hear, Korben
12:26:43 <JarnoO> afternoon Sam
12:26:57 <Sam> Good afternoon!
12:27:02 <Sam> And Happy Thanksgiving
12:27:14 <JarnoO> you too!
12:27:44 <Sam> I haven't been on lately. Do we know the cause of the outage?
12:28:04 <JarnoO> we're thinking the cam's PSU
12:28:27 <Sam> And that probably won't be resolved until the park reopens next month
12:28:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> At least
12:29:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> May require a whole new housing.
12:29:18 <JarnoO> meaning it would be an on-site fix during winter. During summer I think they would've fixed it in a few days, but now I think it'll be a few weeks before something happens
12:29:32 <JarnoO> oh, new housing changes things a lot
12:30:14 <Sam> Well, in the meantime, I guess static OF's will have to do. With some Dome, and Lion thrown in too
12:30:48 <JarnoO> yeah. Though to be fair, the static's FPS was already much higher than the cam's from time to time
12:31:11 <JarnoO> cam was a stuttery mess and a half before it gave up
12:31:32 <Sam> I was noticing that
12:32:10 <JarnoO> maybe the PSU required room temperature to operate properly rather than freezing cold
12:33:06 <Sam> Perhaps so! Well, thought I'd pop in to see what's new. I have some dinner rolls to attend to - have a wonderful day everyone.
12:33:14 <JarnoO> cya Sam
12:34:31 <JarnoO> meanwhile I have the OFVC logs to entertain myself with
13:49:29 <Michael> OF ie
13:56:34 <L> 4 pumpkins on the loop kevin
13:59:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Loop has been quiet
14:18:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That was a nice meet. There is a stack at Cable heading to the loop.
14:19:43 <LindaG> Ii saw it and then it locked up my tablet for some reason, so I got out and then forgot to go back. It's not easy getting old.
14:23:50 <LindaG> 4 more pumpkins
14:25:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And a windmill
14:25:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Meet at cable now
14:25:34 <LindaG> Windmill?
14:25:58 <LindaG> I'm watching cable is that livestock cars?
14:26:44 <LindaG> Or, are they livestock cars?
14:27:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Autoracks
14:27:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Car cars!
14:27:39 <LindaG> Ah 🙂
14:28:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Should show up at the depot in a few minutes
14:34:03 <LindaG> Here it co es
14:34:52 <LindaG> *comes
14:45:57 <LindaG> On the loop
15:24:51 <kc (working)> OF
15:25:12 <Betty> hi all
15:25:24 <JarnoO> evening Betty
15:25:33 <Betty> evening Jarno
15:26:14 <Betty> happy thanksgiving to all
15:30:17 <Betty> seems chat has been quiet all day
15:31:07 <Michael> Hi Betty. Haven't had much to say.
15:33:57 <Betty> hey Michael, everyone is busy with dinner I guess
15:42:46 <KorbenT(urkey)> Time to go finish cooking dinner, and then eat it, and then fall asleep. Wish me luck on the mountains tommorow.
15:43:01 <Michael> Probably so. We had to push the family dinner back a week to get the travel/quarantine to work out right.
15:43:47 <Michael> I have confidence you can handle the mountains. Good luck with the eating tonight!
15:43:54 <Betty> enjoy, Korben
15:56:11 <Betty> BH steam? Lion steam?
15:58:02 <Betty> all gone now
15:58:30 <JarnoO> don't think steam of either of them
15:58:57 <LindaG> Hi al
15:59:04 <JarnoO> hi Linda
15:59:10 <Betty> hi Linda
15:59:11 <LindaG> Lol, hi all
15:59:19 <LindaG> JarnoO, hi
15:59:23 <LindaG> Betty, hi
16:01:16 <LindaG> How is everyone?
16:01:31 <JarnoO> am doing fine, you?
16:01:35 <JarnoO> Also, water back at the boat
16:01:42 <Betty> doing good, you?
16:01:57 <LindaG> I'm doing well
16:02:11 <Betty> great
16:02:24 <LindaG> 🙂
16:03:28 <LindaG> I cooked my Turkey yesterday so leftovers tonight
16:07:50 <JarnoO> Aurum 1607 frame I think
16:08:22 <Betty> possible
16:09:54 <JarnoO> might've been Pump now that I see the 1608 frame
16:12:24 <Betty> always hard to tell in these conditions
16:21:37 <JarnoO> afternoon Forest
16:22:17 <Forestbewithyou> Good evening or is it morning for you Jarno?
16:22:31 <JarnoO> it's night here
16:23:09 <Betty> hi Forest
16:23:35 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Betty
16:26:02 <JarnoO> well, now I can add Spiteful to the list of geysers with false starts. Can also add it to the list of names which you can typo to steriotipical British English - Spoiteful
16:26:11 <JarnoO> steriotypical*
16:26:29 <Betty> lol
16:26:32 <Forestbewithyou> :)
16:27:24 <JarnoO> am actually making a run at completing the 1998 log to 1 November. Then there's only 2 December until the end of the year left to do
16:27:48 <JarnoO> oh, December 1 is in there too, hehe
16:32:46 <Betty> special day for you :-D
16:32:59 <JarnoO> :)
16:33:28 <Betty> how old do you become this year?
16:34:26 <JarnoO> 4 hands ;)
16:35:10 <Betty> yay, cool
16:35:41 <Betty> ohhh, to be 20 again... sigh
16:41:26 <LindaG> Forestbewithyou, hi
16:41:43 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Linda
16:56:28 <Betty> steamcloud from left now?
16:56:37 <JarnoO> yep, looks like Lion
16:57:01 <Forestbewithyou> The stars are also out :p
16:57:54 <Betty> can you enter it?
16:58:14 <Betty> or do you think BH?
16:59:03 <JarnoO> Beehive would cover more of the left side
16:59:22 <Betty> depends on wind
16:59:29 <JarnoO> plus you can somewhat make out the origin of Bee's plume, while you cannot with Lion
16:59:47 <Betty> we had days we could not see BH on static at all
17:02:00 <Betty> OF
17:03:18 <JarnoO> Bee would also be overtime with the current interval distribution. It really likes daytime between 1100 to 1600 (1200 to 1700 MDT), so that also makes it less likely for that plume to be Bee's
17:06:00 <Betty> hmm, I thought about steam from the left at 1556. so maybe that was Lion too?
17:06:43 <Betty> 15:56:11 ‹Betty› BH steam? Lion steam? 15:58:02 ‹Betty› all gone now 15:58:30 ‹JarnoO› don't think steam of either of them
17:07:14 <JarnoO> could've been, now that I think of it
17:07:49 <Betty> I cannot check the archieve atm
17:20:28 <JarnoO> We may be done with the Atlantic hurricane season, but it looks like the Atlantic isn't done with us yet. 40/40 (1) and 0/20 (2)
17:20:54 <JarnoO> off for the day. Enjoy your dinner
17:21:23 <Betty> night Jarno
17:23:21 <Betty> I´m out too, enjoy the turkey and all of your yummy stuff :-)
17:35:27 <LindaG> Forestbewithyou, how has your Thanksgiving been?
17:41:26 <Forestbewithyou> Sorry I was doing something
17:41:59 <Forestbewithyou> My thanksgiving was good. Different but good. Yours Linda?
17:49:53 <LindaG> It was good. Cooked yesterday so tonight was yummy leftovers 🙂
17:50:58 <Forestbewithyou> Nice
18:11:45 <Forestbewithyou> I am going to head out. Good night everyone!
