10:47:09 <LindaG> JarnoO, morning
10:47:42 <JarnoO🎄> morning Linda
10:48:47 <LindaG> Oh i just turned my husband on to huckleberry jam. hehe
10:49:08 <LindaG> I became addicted out there
10:49:35 <LindaG> I guess now I'm going to have to order more
10:57:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If you are in the Utah/Idaho area the Artic Circle has huckleberry shakes. There is also a place that has huckleberry pancake syrup.
11:00:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My daughter says you can get it on Amazon.
11:07:04 <JarnoO🎄> lol. The Dutch Railways are auctioning junk from old trains. You can own an axle including its wheels for €250. Doors as well, as are seats, heating panels, electronics...
11:10:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My friend did a bit better. He and 3 friends bought this: https://www.railpictures.net/photo/721022/
11:10:50 <JarnoO🎄> that's a nice livery
11:12:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It has a lot more wear and tear on it now but when the run it he told me I could ride in it. https://www.flickr.com/photos/158539681@N04/49452555878/
11:14:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A model of it just came out today! https://www.modeltrainstuff.com/kato-n-1769241-sdp40f-type-ivb-maersk-sealand-bnsf-6976/
11:15:34 <JarnoO🎄> looks nice
11:16:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I will be getting one of those but I think I will wait for the DCC version.
12:01:49 <Kat> Just want wish all my gazer friends and cam op buddies a very Merry Christmas
12:03:32 <JarnoO🎄> merry christmas to you too, Kat
12:10:46 <Korben w/ too m> Kat, merry christmas.
12:53:48 <Korben w/ too m> JarnoO🎄, pretty good example of a classic hook echo inside of the storms on the east coast right now :)
12:54:56 <LindaG> Korben w/ too much sugar, :(
12:55:11 <LindaG> wind picked up here
12:55:13 <Korben w/ too m> LindaG, why a frown?
12:55:24 <Korben w/ too m> LindaG, not near you.
12:55:51 <LindaG> oh good then :)
12:55:58 <Korben w/ too m> Hook echos are good, means rotation, means tornadoes.
12:56:00 <Korben w/ too m> :P
12:56:18 <LindaG> tornadoes arent good except on the computer
12:56:36 <LindaG> we are expecting high winds tonight, already picking up
12:56:58 <Korben w/ too m> I would rather see a big storm with 3 or 4 EF2 tornadoes, and be chasing it than go to YNP :P lol, they are awesome.
12:58:09 <LindaG> back to :(
12:58:58 <Korben w/ too m> As long as there are not city intercepts, but if there are, good thing spotters are there, hehe.
12:59:23 <Korben w/ too m> LindaG, the rain angle is 87 for you tonight, that means it will probably rain sideways.
13:00:05 <LindaG> Calling for 2-3 inches and 70 mph wind gusts tonight
13:00:40 <LindaG> If you see me blow by remember to wave :)
13:00:54 <Korben w/ too m> I will wave, laugh, and smile.
13:37:32 <LindaG> OF
13:46:04 <JarnoO🎄> there's a Beehive
13:47:03 <GO SANTA> i dont see it
13:48:38 <JarnoO🎄> wind's going the wrong way, though 1343 shows it
15:21:32 <JarnoO🎄> before and after picture of Halema'uma'u: https://www.usgs.gov/media/before-after/recent-changes-k-lauea-volcano
15:23:26 <LindaG> wow thats a lot of lava, thx for sharing
15:24:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No wonder the cam quit. All the lava went to Hawaii
15:24:41 <LindaG> :)
15:25:10 <LindaG> The cam knows!
15:26:17 <GO SANTA> Caps Sabres 14 Jan..let hockey sason begin
15:28:47 <GO SANTA> i read at this rate it will overflow in 140 days if the fisures keeppumpig lava at the ame rate
15:29:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Maybe my package will be here by then.
15:31:16 <LindaG> GO SANTA, oh dear
15:31:36 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, still lost in Phoenix?
15:32:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Last I saw it was in the rings f Saturn heading toward Pluto.
15:32:25 <LindaG> haha!
15:32:43 <GO SANTA> i thought you had everything you needed Kevin other than a working cam
15:33:05 <LindaG> All my packages made it before today, some took their time.
15:33:33 <JarnoO🎄> I have doubts it'll overflow. The lake's level is now near the vent. Should the fissure drown itself (which I think is likely given it doesn't seem to have much umpf behind it), we might get something similar as Kilauea Iki, with massive outpouring initially and then every day or so as pressure builds and drops. Meanwhile that lake has drained up to vent level, so net gain is low
15:33:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I really do but I ordered this in November, it was supposed to have been shipped December 4th but there is no scan and nobody will look for it until Jan 4th.
15:34:38 <JarnoO🎄> if we get a case like Overlook Crater, where pressure is constant on average, then perhaps overflow somewhere next year
15:35:01 <GO SANTA> agree that something will probably change. that was USGS Volcanos FB page comment from them
15:35:56 <GO SANTA> lust because the lake goe over the fissure dosnt mean it will stop rising.
15:36:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nothing worse than a lusty volcano.
15:37:08 <GO SANTA> hehe, its filled with heated passion
15:37:35 <GO SANTA> good luck wth your delivery kevin...maybe 2021 will bing it to you
15:37:37 <JarnoO🎄> USGS also said that new activity following major ones (like Pu'u O'o and Mauna Ulu) tends to be small, so there's that as well. Could be that enough lava remains fluid below the crust that forms and a new eruption increases the lake's level again, though
15:38:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I ordered an extra thing Monday from Sam's Club. It got here FedEx today!
15:38:46 <GO SANTA> mybe there will be bigger earthquales and som external vent will open up too
15:39:01 <GO SANTA> extra things are good
15:39:07 <JarnoO🎄> yep. Am hoping to see some SW rift action. That side has been dormant for years
15:39:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My wife will like it.
15:40:55 <GO SANTA> i see Santa fle over Germany and Netherland, so Betty and JarnoO should have gifts
15:41:58 <GO SANTA> have to wait 19min to open them tho
15:49:07 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, for your wife or family?
15:49:32 <JarnoO🎄> I have to wait until somewhere in January to open mine. I like backordering stuff... *not*
15:50:08 <LindaG> I bought a new PC and tablet, hehe, don't have to wait
15:51:11 <Betty> noone gives me a gift :-(
15:51:47 <LindaG> Betty, I buy my own :) works out much better
15:53:00 <LindaG> Betty, hubbie isn't into shopping so over the years I buy it and tell him what he paid for :)
15:53:07 <Betty> I usually do so as well, but we have a shutdown here, no shops open but grocerys
15:53:26 <JarnoO🎄> even then I probably wouldn't have had it by christmas. Package delivery people are overloaded
15:53:30 <LindaG> Betty, oh that is a bummer, can't order online?
15:53:41 <Betty> and I usually don´t do online shopping
15:53:45 <LindaG> JarnoO🎄, its been very slow here
15:53:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> For wife Linda.
15:54:29 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, oh come on, what did you get her?
15:54:31 <Betty> lol, Linda, smart move
15:54:58 <Betty> he cannot tell, maybe she´s lurking
15:55:09 <LindaG> ohhhh
15:55:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I ran across one of those clocks that has melodies and the face moves on the hour.
15:55:29 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, nice
15:56:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have a grandfather's clock once I can figure out how to move it without killing it.
15:57:19 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, always wanted one of those, I love cuckoo clocks too
16:03:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We have a few cuckoo clocks. They don't sing much any more. I need to rebellow them.
16:06:15 <LindaG> Had a foreind long time ago whose father made clocks and they all chimed. Occasionally Id sleep on the porch where he had all the clocks. Needless to say every hour I was awake. lol
16:06:24 <LindaG> *friend
16:08:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My Dad's cousin was in Germany when I was there and collected antique clocks. He even had one from the 1400's that had wood gears and rocks for weights. When i slept at his house I didn't sleep around midnight. Lots of interesting noises!
16:10:32 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, :) And they all chimed within a minute of each other
16:14:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think I got about a half hour of bongs, chimes, and cuckoos.
16:15:02 <LindaG> :)
16:16:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is the one I found. Check the videos. https://www.samsclub.com/p/seiko-clock-melodies-in-motion-clock-2020/prod23570481
16:18:56 <LindaG> oh that's a nice one, I'm sure she'll love it.
16:19:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice Christmas lights with a side order of Southwest Chief in about 5m: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOHhA_XIZZw&ab_channel=VirtualRailfan
16:22:37 <Forestbewithyou> Night everyone. Enjoy the rest of your evenings
16:22:44 <JarnoO🎄> cya Forest
16:22:55 <LindaG> Forestbewithyou🥶, night
16:23:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
16:35:22 <LindaG> saw train but don't think it was the chief
16:35:43 <LindaG> kinda dark
16:45:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That wasn't the chief. Should have been 55m.
16:45:40 <LindaG> ah
16:45:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like it is due 1825 CT now
16:46:07 <LindaG> :thumbsup:
16:46:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I like the Christmas display.
16:46:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Chief will be coming left to right.
16:46:33 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, it is very nice
16:47:41 <JarnoO🎄> off for the day. Enjoy the santa tracker
16:48:19 <GO SANTA> of
16:48:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
16:48:33 <GO SANTA> Merry Christmas JarnO
16:50:54 <LindaG> JarnoO🎄, Merry Christmas, night
16:51:36 <LindaG> Ho, Ho, Ho GO SANTA,
16:51:50 <LindaG> hmmm my turkey is done
16:52:55 <Betty> I´m out as well, enjoy Christmas Eve. Night all
16:53:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
16:53:39 <LindaG> Betty, Nigh,t you too!
16:54:21 <LindaG> I guess the laptop wasn't the cure all for my typing, Haha!
16:59:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did you check that loose nut behind the keyboard?
17:53:48 <LindaG> I forgot my christmas lights and snow
19:34:37 <snow> What a job Kevin is doing. Better then the Post Office. Doing his duty manning the camera even when it is broken down.
19:35:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is broken? I thought it was just frozen.
19:36:41 <snow> You were the kid that kept playing pinball when you ran out of quarters?
19:46:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not pinball but Pacman.
19:47:15 <snow> I thought you were a kid before that?
19:49:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was old enough that I didn't run out of quarters but I did put my share in Pacman.
19:49:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> When I was a kid we were more concerned with lunch that pinball.
19:50:25 <snow> But back then you could get a coke and cheese burger for like 35 cents
19:50:39 <snow> ANd it came with fries
19:51:51 <snow> Well, I got to do family stuff. Enjoy watching for that red nose. Hope it shows on the static cam. Should be bright enough to get an image.
19:51:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes you could! I remember if we were good all week we would get 35 cents to go see a movie (usually double feature) and that was enough for admission and two boxes of candy.
19:55:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is my boss and his wife. Check out the menu prices. http://hendersonlibraries.sobeklibrary.com/HL00011258/00001?search=otto+=nelson
