06:48:22 <Dave from B™> Good morning anyone?
07:18:04 <L> Dave from B™, anyone here, good morning!
07:28:42 <Dave from B™> Hey Linda
07:29:34 <Dave from B™> Not so beautiful Lake view this morning.
07:37:11 <L> 😕
07:38:31 <L> Well PT appt, be back later
08:53:03 <Katie> got your fingers crossed?
08:53:08 <Dave from B™> Morning Katie
08:53:26 <Dave from B™> For a fix because park opens tomorrow?
08:54:25 <Katie> For a fix. Just for a fix.
08:54:47 <Katie> This junkie needs a fix
08:55:17 <Dave from B™> Not really. I figure camops will be privy to an upcoming fix before me.
08:55:37 <Katie> Ah, well, there is some hope for today. ;)
08:58:56 <Eric> Morning all, fingers crossed!
08:59:16 <Dave from B™> Why so much hope for the cam today?
08:59:28 <Eric> Because Katie is excited :-D
08:59:45 <Dave from B™> Does she have insider info?
08:59:53 <Eric> She is a cam operator
09:00:21 <Katie> There is a possibility a replacement camera might get installed today. But it hasn't been set up with our logins, so we won't be able to drive it immediately. But I think progress is being made.
09:00:36 <Eric> woohoo
09:00:53 <Eric> 8 degrees is cold work out there!
09:01:00 <JarnoO> :i::i:
09:01:04 <Eric> Lake static is eerie
09:01:13 <Dave from B™> Do you know if it is a different model of camera or the same?
09:01:14 <Eric> Looks more like a river than a lake right now
09:01:26 <JarnoO> and where would that replacement camera be? On the Inn or in the ol' tree?
09:01:50 <Dave from B™> It will never go back to the tree
09:02:13 <Katie> On the Inn. I think different model, but I'm not certain. Dave is correct - it won't go back to tree.
09:02:56 <JarnoO> good, because I never want it to go back to that tree after getting those magnificent views the last years
09:03:52 <JarnoO> didn't the tree camera stay in the tree after we moved to the Inn? Or was it removed some time ago?
09:05:27 <Eric> I assume they removed it at some point this summer. I wouldn't be surprised if they are using the camera from the tree on the inn
09:09:10 <JarnoO> anyway - morning all :)
09:09:24 <Eric> Hi Jarno
09:22:00 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric. Hi Jarno
09:25:57 <Eric> Hi Dave
09:27:17 <Dave from B™> My wife is now an e-bike owner!
09:27:57 <JarnoO> congrats!
09:28:17 <Eric> Nice...does it have snow tires?
09:28:55 <Eric> When her and Craig drag race, I want to see the video!
09:29:07 <Dave from B™> No snow tires. Trek Verse 2
09:29:18 <Eric> I love Trek bikes
09:29:27 <Dave from B™> Verve 2
09:29:34 <Dave from B™> lowstep
09:41:54 <Eric> Very nice looking bike Dave. I hope that helps get everyone out riding.
09:42:23 <Dave from B™> Me, too.
09:42:25 <Eric> You know you will have to buy 2 now :-P Once she is riding 20mph uphill, you will want one.
09:42:32 <Dave from B™> We need to exercise while on the road
09:42:53 <Dave from B™> Winter exercise is still tough because neither of us likes the cold or the snow
09:45:14 <Eric> Get the right clothes and you are never cold.
09:45:35 <Katie> And that doesn't have to be "bulky" clothes
09:46:48 <Eric> I love my down puffies....they are crazy warm and not bulky.
09:47:26 <Dave from B™> I could replace my 25 year old winter coat...need to replace my 25 year old Gore Tex rain jacket first
09:47:27 <Eric> I have learned so much about heat management the last couple years. When exercising, that can be pretty tricky in the winter.
09:48:09 <Eric> haha...I assume that rain jacket gets soaked in about 15m of hard rain.
09:48:21 <Dave from B™> Yes, I will probably replace my bike in the next couple of years since it is 30 years old
09:49:27 <Eric> I know people who swear by the patagonia nano puff jacket if you want a lightweight, super warm jacket.
09:52:04 <Eric> and patagonia is an incredible company
09:54:13 <Dave from B™> My wife and I have plans to get to the new REI in town and start with rain jackets
09:54:45 <Eric> If you want really waterproof, arcteryx makes the best jackets.
10:03:18 <Dave from B™> For SB to break its annual record we need 2 intervals averaging less than 10d1h36m....not likely
10:07:24 <Eric> OF ie
10:07:49 <Eric> Looks like start on 10:06 frame
10:21:53 <Eric> Visitors!
10:23:24 <Dave from B™> not until tomorrow...must be staff
10:23:48 <Eric> Staff!
10:25:16 <Katie> cross those fingers
10:25:45 <Dave from B™> Are we about to be plugged in?
10:25:59 <Eric> Fingers crossed!
10:31:18 <Katie> There are a LOT of people there!
10:32:01 <b> Xanterra employees?
10:32:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Maybe one will fix the cam.
10:32:27 <Dave from B™> You asked how many people it takes to install a camera!:D
10:32:35 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin
10:32:44 <b> human ladder up onto the Inn?
10:34:07 <Eric> Guess social distance isn't something they are practicing.
10:35:13 <Dave from B™> Maybe Micah is in that group.
10:35:48 <Eric> I think he is at mammoth, but he might have driven some of them up to UGB I guess.
10:36:29 <Betty> morning all
10:37:01 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
10:37:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
10:37:49 <Betty> hi Dave from B™, Kevin L™ 🌵, Eric, Katie, b
10:38:32 <Betty> peeps! :-)
10:39:50 <Betty> go cam!
10:40:42 <Eric> Hi Betty
10:48:36 <Betty> Aurum?
10:49:04 <Eric> Can't tell
10:49:18 <Betty> me either
10:53:26 <L> Hi all
10:53:37 <Betty> hey Linda
10:53:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
10:53:55 <L> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi
10:54:05 <L> Did I miss camera fun?
10:54:18 <Betty> nope
10:54:41 <L> Betty, hi
10:56:33 <Dave from B™> I kind of like staring at an old black and white still photo
10:56:37 <Dave from B™> :P
10:58:51 <Eric> Dave, you can make this your desktop wallpaper for future happiness -
10:59:23 <L> Lol
10:59:24 <Betty> haahha
11:00:32 <L> Lunchtime
11:00:33 <Dave from B™> Hahaha. How about a old streaming video from the old tree cam on a REALLY windy day?:)
11:01:15 <Betty> even better
11:01:19 <Eric> I am sure there is some of that floating around youtube, check MGs channel
11:01:37 <Eric> Probably a blurry bigfoot in the video too
11:02:02 <Betty> she caught Craig?
11:04:58 <KorbenC> 2 Finals left today :)
11:05:40 <Dave from B™> hahahaha Betty
11:05:52 <KorbenC> Betty, lol
11:06:03 <KorbenC> At least there are people at OF :)
11:23:44 <Betty> guess they did not want to wait
11:24:38 <Eric> They were all headed to the Inn Roof to try and fix the cam!
11:31:08 <Dave from B™> I hope they don't. The roof will collapse.
11:37:36 <KorbenC> speaking of which, any word on when we might actually get someone to look at the cam?
11:39:00 <Dave from B™> TODAY, maybe
11:39:14 <KorbenC> so, probably not today :P
11:39:26 <KorbenC> Where did you hear that from Dave? camop? MG? :P
11:40:36 <Dave from B™> today's log
11:40:39 <Eric> They are going to attempt it Coop, but it's in a tough location and they have to work in snow and 19 degrees, so who knows how it will go.
11:40:55 <KorbenC> lol, exactly
11:40:59 <Eric> I just appreciate them trying!
11:41:19 <Eric> I would buy them a hot cocoa if I could :-D
11:41:29 <Eric> With some baileys in it.
11:41:56 <KorbenC> I can barely put on my backpack on a precipice with a foot of snow, much less YNP :P
11:43:02 <Betty> OF
11:43:29 <KorbenC> OF
11:43:32 <KorbenC> right on time
11:43:52 <Eric> I got a new winter/alpine backpack I used for the first time yesterday, it was awesome.
11:44:08 <Eric> Carried snowshoes, poles and all my gear in 26Liter capacity.
11:45:19 <KorbenC> nicle
11:45:30 <KorbenC> I use the same pack year round, Osprey camelback something
11:45:32 <Eric> Great pack, the Dueter Speed lite 26
11:45:52 <Eric> haha, those are 2 different brands coop :-D
11:46:55 <KorbenC> lol
11:46:57 <KorbenC> its one of them
11:47:28 <KorbenC> my pack.
11:47:35 <Eric> probably an Osprey pack
11:47:42 <KorbenC> Although, did not buy it from that location, just the type of pack.
11:48:00 <Eric> Nice tiny pack!
11:48:07 <KorbenC> Its the best 14er and 13er, and regular hiking :)
11:48:57 <KorbenC> I am pretty tiny, it fits everything I need, water bladder, every layer of clothing I could imagine, food, and flashlights, crampons, ect.
11:49:29 <Eric> Yep, perfect for you.
11:49:32 <KorbenC> I would bring my bigger pack if I was going overnight, but most of my things are day trips.
11:50:11 <Eric> Yep, mine is only 4liters bigger -
11:50:19 <KorbenC> Only problem that I have with it is that it is getting old, I have used it for 5 years and only have another year or two left.
11:50:47 <Eric> Well, you will probably have a growth spurt sometime soon and need a bigger pack/clothes.
11:51:08 <KorbenC> am having growth spurt
11:51:31 <KorbenC> I have grown 8 inches this year, lol.
11:51:44 <Eric> I would recommend this dueter so far.
11:51:53 <Eric> a weed
11:52:45 <KorbenC> This is my other one,
11:52:59 <KorbenC> Very very very good for overnight and longer trips.
11:54:08 <Eric> It's exactly the same size as your other one.
11:54:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This would be my pack:
11:54:24 <KorbenC> no
11:54:33 <KorbenC> its alot bigger than it.
11:54:43 <KorbenC> I think I might have selected the wrong size though
11:54:45 <Eric> Is that you in the picture Kevin? :-P
11:54:55 <KorbenC> HAHA
11:54:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It could be!
11:55:15 <KorbenC> wait, nevermind, I thought you were talking about the donkey, I did not scroll down far enough.
11:56:23 <KorbenC> Eric, this is what people from Kansas seem to wear on 14ers,
11:57:51 <Betty> is that the pandemic backpack?
11:57:58 <KorbenC> lol
11:59:12 <KorbenC> There are 3 ways to get the most attention on a mountain it seems: 1) Bring a very cute dog, or a very tiny kid. 2) Barf in front of a group of people. 3) Wear ridiculous things.
12:01:42 <Eric> Do you do all 3?
12:02:07 <KorbenC> I do 1 alot, I do 2 sometimes, and I have not done 3.
12:02:54 <Eric> These are great to climb in Coop!
12:03:02 <KorbenC> what about you eric?
12:03:31 <KorbenC> I was thinking more along this line,
12:03:41 <Eric> Never puked on a summit, my poor put has knee issues.
12:04:04 <Eric> If I could climb in the dino outfit, I would :-P
12:04:11 <KorbenC> You get AMS/ALS often?
12:07:19 <KorbenC> Eric,
12:08:29 <Eric> Nice Coop
12:08:46 <Eric> poor pup has knee issues...typo
12:09:03 <KorbenC> :( Sorry.
12:09:14 <Eric> Nope, altitude doesn't seem to bother me. But put me on a merry-go-round and I will be puking everywhere.
12:09:30 <Eric> I do NOT like going in circles
12:09:55 <KorbenC> Yea, as long as I get >5 hours of sleep the night before I will be fine, anything less than that and I will get AMS/ALS.
12:11:36 <KorbenC> Final exam time, good luck with the "camera".
12:12:39 <Eric> That is exhaustion...similar to AMS/ALS
12:12:53 <Eric> Good luck on the exam
12:41:57 <JarnoO> evening Betty
12:47:02 <a> things are changing at the radio for the cam!!
12:47:10 <JarnoO> woohoo!
12:47:18 <Eric> wooohoo
12:47:43 <Eric> thanks A
12:48:01 <JarnoO> a, the radio whisperer :P
12:48:40 <JarnoO> (obviously it's just that admin panel, haha)
12:49:05 <JarnoO> possibly Aurum on 1240 frame
12:49:08 <a> the slave has been disconnected and the master is searching for it
12:49:13 <Betty> evening Jarno
12:49:19 <Eric> I am headed into a meeting, so it will probably happen then!
12:49:43 <Eric> Hopefully it finds a new working one!
12:50:03 <a> fingers crossed
12:50:36 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the update, a
12:50:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave will just break it again.
12:50:44 <Dave from B™> :P
12:51:13 <Eric> Off I go for my meeting, enjoy the new cam!
12:51:19 <JarnoO> Dave should install a screenprotector so he views the stream indirectly :D
12:52:32 <Dave from B™> haha
12:56:23 <JarnoO> I've got a hard head in YVO logger data today at scheduled time (1200 upload, ±1300 publicly viewable). YNM still not up
12:56:51 <JarnoO> given that staff is out and about, it might be today at a later time
13:06:36 <Betty> dome
13:17:03 <Dave from B™> Hi Ryan
13:17:15 <Dave from B™> Sounds like a snake to me:)
13:32:41 <a> the Radio on the inn roof has not returned yet, I hope they are not having more problems>
13:33:00 <JarnoO> would be typical, no? :)
13:33:25 <a> :)
13:34:23 <JarnoO> Fluffy making us wait... 1334 and still nothing
13:42:10 <Betty> OF
13:43:42 <JarnoO> something new today - 4.4 EQ WNW of Kea, at the end of the western group of cones. Must be a shake at the observatories on the summit
13:44:19 <JarnoO> (to be clear - it's not related to imminent volcanism)
13:44:54 <b> ITS GONNA BLOW!!!
13:45:11 <JarnoO> -_-
13:45:24 <Forestbewithyou> lol
13:45:50 <kc (working)> wow 2 hr OF int
13:46:33 <JarnoO> possibly a short
13:47:09 <Betty> I would bet a short
13:47:59 <JarnoO> the 1343 frame is missing, though, so can't tell for certain
13:54:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Dave stole it.
14:09:45 <Betty> time to head out, good luck with the cam
14:10:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
14:10:12 <JarnoO> cya Betty
14:11:48 <a> the inn radio is back up, but not a good cam input yet
14:12:52 <Dave from B™> Thanks a (J)
14:13:34 <L> 🙂
14:13:41 <a> Dave from B™, yes :thumbsup:
14:14:40 <b> radio killed the video star?
14:15:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Back when I was growing up I used to watch all my rock videos on the radio.
14:23:03 <KorbenC> a, at least they are fixing something :P
14:24:41 <Dave from B™> watch?
14:25:19 <KorbenC> Lion?
14:28:49 <a> Dave from B™, old people have imaginations
14:34:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Long freight at Kansas City Linda. It went from 1517 to 1532!
14:35:41 <JarnoO> that's a long wait at a crossing
14:36:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> For sure. And there is a crossing there.
14:37:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is the link.
14:37:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Try again
14:38:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Rewind back to 1517. Hits the crossing at 1518.
14:41:12 <L> Kevin L™ 🌵, 🙂
14:43:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The really amazing thing is there were only 2 engines.
14:45:04 <JarnoO> it is
14:45:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That train would go across your whole country Jarno!
14:46:33 <JarnoO> pretty much, yeah. I doubt even our biggest trainyard could accomodate one of those
14:46:55 <a> well with the shadows lengthening, we will probably going for cam plan x :(
14:47:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like I have yet another day off!
14:47:47 <JarnoO> back when they set the world record for longest passenger train pulled by one locomotive, they had a hard time finding room for 60 cars :)
14:49:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is a long passenger train.
14:50:21 <JarnoO> it is. Unfortunately the Belgians took that spot a year later with 70 cars
14:51:38 <JarnoO> oh, and the 60-car train wasn't completely filled. The 1500V catenary can only support trains up to 15 cars, so the remaining 45 were just for the record
14:52:52 <L> That was a long one, amazing
14:53:00 <L> RIP cam
14:55:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I don't know how many cars the train I rode through Feather River Canyon had but I walked most of it and it was a looooooong walk.
15:00:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I looked up the video. There were 17 cars (plus 2 tenders) on my train. I am the guy on the left on the platform in the back.
15:08:26 <kc (working)> OF
15:08:35 <JarnoO> Fluffy on time this time
15:11:18 <Dave from B™> a, is that called day dreaming or hallucinating?:)
15:12:40 <a> well it is Kevin
15:16:05 <Dave from B™> hahaha
15:16:27 <Dave from B™> Sounds like being too close to too many blasts
15:30:00 <Covid Girl Lori> Hello strangers! :)
15:30:58 <L> Hello Covid Girl Lori, hello

15:39:29 <LindaG> Yes he has. I thi k he finished his chemo
15:39:44 <Covid Girl Lori> My Covid scared them off :)
15:40:08 <Covid Girl Lori> He is doing OK? I think about him every so often.
15:40:22 <LindaG> 🙂 Haha, I was thinking that
15:40:51 <LindaG> Covid Girl Lori, he was looking forward to chemo being done so he could feel better
15:41:06 <Covid Girl Lori> i bet
15:41:23 <LindaG> And hopefully be cancer free
15:41:34 <Covid Girl Lori> I felt bad I couldn't get him a discount in West this summer
15:42:26 <Covid Girl Lori> Hopefully he will return when now I have a better chance
15:42:29 <LindaG> Well I'm sure you did your best

15:46:19 <Covid Girl Lori> I am a child of the night now. Well, when I am not up almost 24/7 trying to breathe
15:46:45 <Covid Girl Lori> Yes, years :)

15:50:57 <Covid Girl Lori> Just pain in my chest
15:51:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> have you been on oxygen?

15:51:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> altitude doesnt help either
15:51:48 <Covid Girl Lori> if i stay upright, i am ok
15:52:09 <Covid Girl Lori> or asthma
15:52:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah, being propped up helps
15:58:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> no can huh? Santa needs to hurry to get us a Christmas present
15:58:41 <Covid Girl Lori> Well, a .o2 upload rate will not work for Roku
15:58:46 <LindaG> Nope, not sure why
15:59:27 <Covid Girl Lori> It'ssnowing pretty good here
15:59:44 <LindaG> We may get socked on wednesday
16:00:01 <LindaG> Some areas looking at 20 inches

16:03:30 <LindaG> Covid Girl Lori S, bye
16:03:44 <Covid Girl Lori> Bye all
16:07:05 <Dave from B™> Bye Lori
16:13:59 <Dave from B™> Time for me to head home to eat, watch Ravens play and work. Have a good evening everyone!
16:14:16 <KorbenC> Bye Dave
16:15:24 <JarnoO> cya Dave
16:16:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> opening day tomorrow, should be fun
16:16:51 <LindaG> Dave from B™, night
16:17:09 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, yeah something will be happening on static
16:17:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> we have the fn of seeing snowcoaches and sleds at the Wes Gate too
16:18:33 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, 🙂
16:21:18 <LindaG> Wo whomwere all the people out there today?
16:21:35 <LindaG> *so who were
16:21:54 <JarnoO> maybe staff meeting at Fluffball?
16:22:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> i didnt see, maybe guides training?
16:22:21 <LindaG> Makes sense
16:23:27 <LindaG> Been watching too long I could have sworn snow blew past cam
16:23:31 <JarnoO> they went out for Fluffy and returned after it. They were out for a fair time, but don't think long enough for actual training
16:24:29 <JarnoO> (well, unless training is like how Asian bus tours tour, walk like a maniac and only say one or two things of a feature)
16:25:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> they had some online training too, so who knows if they ere out looking at the lesser places
16:26:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> it sure will be a different winetr season, i wonder if visitation wil be up like this summer - i doubt it
16:26:30 <KorbenC> JO sounds like he has been to YNP talking about tour busses :P
16:26:48 <JarnoO> nah, was said in chat probably years ago
16:27:07 <KorbenC> :)
16:27:11 <JarnoO> 2018-ish
16:29:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least the yellow busses didnt bother us on the cam this summer
16:30:36 <LindaG> KorbenC, hi
16:37:30 <KorbenC> Hi Linda
16:37:32 <KorbenC> Hi Graham
16:45:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> hey Korben. hows your snow?
16:49:34 <KorbenC> Sorry, was talking with Lori about COVID :D
16:49:55 <KorbenC> It is good as always, can enver go wrong with 10F and snowy.
16:49:59 <KorbenC> How is your weather?
16:51:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> wet most of the day. will be a little snow Wed unless the storm shifts
16:53:03 <KorbenC> what city is near you besides DC?
16:55:03 <KorbenC> or should I just say, west, east?
16:56:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am just south of DC near I 95 and te eltway
16:56:27 <KorbenC> yea, you will get a few inches of snow I think.
16:56:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> they said we should get acoating of snow here but it goes up fast as you head west
16:56:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> so if the storm shifts East we may get more
16:57:04 <KorbenC> This storm does not look like it wants to shift much, might weaken if it turns banding, but other than that, you are 0.5-2;9 inches
16:57:21 <JarnoO> OF was a short - 2 frames of water of which the second at peak. Next frame shows no trace of an eruption
16:57:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah and then rain will wash it away
16:58:55 <LindaG> Hopefully I'm the same
17:00:38 <KorbenC> You on the other hand Linda
17:01:16 <LindaG> 😯
17:01:47 <LindaG> Seems highest is west and north of me
17:01:48 <KorbenC> The ejection of the storm out of the chunky cold air mass will trigger reverese genesis.
17:01:57 <LindaG> Unless it shifts east
17:02:21 <KorbenC> sorry.
17:02:24 <KorbenC> Need simpler terms :p
17:02:43 <LindaG> Lol please
17:02:45 <KorbenC> Storm get going fast, storm go ahead of cold front, so, more rain than snow.
17:03:04 <LindaG> Yay
17:03:09 <KorbenC> and then cold after.
17:03:53 <LindaG> 👍
17:04:43 <KorbenC> The models already show the storm trending to the east, so it might be on the upper end of predicted precip.
17:05:16 <LindaG> But rain?
17:05:37 <KorbenC> There is this fine line in the models
17:05:55 <LindaG> I think I'm right one the line
17:06:05 <LindaG> *on
17:06:33 <KorbenC> If it shifts west you will both get nothing, if it stays where it is yo uwill get some, if it shifts east just a tad you will have higher chance of snow,but any mroe than 3tilt Nexrad level will trigger more rain.
17:08:59 <KorbenC> Forest, if you are here, I have nto asked in a while how your meteorology class is going?
17:09:22 <Forestbewithyou> Its going great! Took the final today!
17:09:24 <LindaG> KorbenC, thx
17:09:36 <LindaG> Forestbewithyou, 👍
17:09:38 <KorbenC> good, feeling good about your answers?
17:10:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> so now you can tell me how much snow i will get Forest
17:10:47 <Forestbewithyou> Yea! and I could but I think Korben already did that LOL
17:11:15 <LindaG> 🙂 yeah maybe forest will come up with a better forecast 😉
17:11:39 <LindaG> We can pick which one we like
17:12:08 <LindaG> Better
17:12:09 <KorbenC> Forest, all models show a quick ejection from the air mass ahead of the genesis, but, you think that eastern air mass is going to trigger that CAPE to skyrocket and trigger post-airmass genesis along the tilted axis, or do just think it will barrell out into the Atlantic.
17:12:47 <KorbenC> Forest will probably do it better, he probably had a lesson on explaining weather simply :)
17:13:23 <LindaG> It might, snow, it might rain 🙂
17:13:57 <Forestbewithyou> We can discuss that later. I have things I have to get done tonight like studying for a Calculus test tomorrow
17:14:15 <KorbenC> F- I got rejected :P :P Gl on your test.
17:14:20 <KorbenC> Linda, you mean, it might Colorado.
17:14:39 <KorbenC> Aka, snow, rain, cloudy, sunny, lightning :)
17:14:44 <KorbenC> all at the same time.
17:14:49 <LindaG> 🙂
17:15:20 <Forestbewithyou> LOL. Thanks and I will talk to you all tomorrow. I am going to head out for tonight
17:15:41 <LindaG> Forestbewithyou, night
17:15:43 <KorbenC> Night Forest.
