07:39:36 <Betty> you need to look for the old man in Crater Lake
07:40:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes, i have 4 nights at the lodge think
07:41:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> i only drove up once years ago in May when it was snowed in
07:41:38 <Betty> we did not see it when we were there, but we only had 1 day
07:42:46 <Betty> and everything was in smoke. We had several detours because of fires
07:45:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats no fun.
07:45:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am looking forward to driving rund the lake and doing the boat tour
07:46:25 <Betty> sounds good
07:47:39 <Betty> we had that the same year in Glacier. Not much to see on Going-to-the-sun road :-(
07:48:17 <Betty> good thing is: we have to do it again to see something :-D
07:50:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah, G2S rod is very pretty. i stayed there for a week once andit was cloudy, so limited views, and then it cleared nd was spectacular
07:50:59 <Betty> Aurum ?
07:51:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> saw bears every day, stayed at Lake McDonald for 3 nights, Many Galcier 4, and Apgar the last night with my mom
07:51:27 <Betty> nice
07:51:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> did red bus tours from each side to the top too
07:53:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> also want to visit Lassen this year too
07:54:12 <Betty> hope you can go to Bumpass Hell. Trail was closed this 2019 for maintenance
07:54:43 <Betty> oh, they should been able to get it done in over a year. lol
07:55:21 <Betty> it´s hard to believe I did not go to US this year :-(

07:56:06 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, hey Graham
07:56:19 <Betty> howdy CraigC
08:09:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> hi Craig, hope you had a good Christmas
08:10:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope thins are open and not smoky, i think i gotherethe end of July
08:11:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> may have water starting at SB now too, looks like sessor was iced in and now temp riing a little
08:12:40 <CraigC> it was a good Christmas, because I stayed home most the day and just hung out and watched tv. No chaotic dinners, and big noisy groups :)
08:16:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> we had a small family group too and it was nice not to have all the planning and busines of a largegroup
08:17:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> Beef Wellington was nice too, my sister and niece made it since we didnt hve as many people here
08:18:15 <Betty> I just had Thomas with me for dinner the last days (and for a Christmas beer, hehe)
08:19:19 <CraigC> from now on, I think I will feign illness every November to January
08:19:25 <Betty> usually we stay at one of my elder brothers homes with all families together
08:19:45 <Betty> haha, Craig
08:21:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> tht avoids you havingto fake happiness Craig?
08:21:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> dod you see my SB blanky on FB?
08:31:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> my niece got me a blanket made with my SB picture from Decker on one side and a big collection of pics from her visit in Sept including Giantess
08:33:08 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, wowowow, just checked it out
08:33:35 <Betty> nice!!
08:33:57 <Betty> you have a link?
08:34:10 <CraigC> Betty, you dont do Facebook?
08:34:29 <Betty> no
08:34:37 <CraigC> Betty, Instagram?
08:34:44 <Betty> no
08:35:25 <CraigC> I like Instagram for pics, no politics, no drama, just share adventures with each other
08:47:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> my niece and her son enjoyed thei long weekend in Sept, they arrived day after Giantess and saw one of its bursts that day befre dark
08:49:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> then we toured UGB and we dashed out of cabin for a BH, visied W Thumb, saw a Fountain eruption as awalkup, and they left ia Norris on day 1 of he wait for 9/16 eruption
08:50:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> we toured orris in the morning and they left for the airport and I stayed at SB he rest of the day, guess thatwas the 14th
08:50:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least their visit ddnt compete with the SB sit
08:51:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> they will be with me again for a week in June
08:51:23 <Betty> yay
08:52:59 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, what was his favorite geyser, I forgot
08:53:12 <CraigC> ballcap?
08:54:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope it is stil active next year
08:55:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> he got the How Geysers Work book for Christmas and I bought his mom the Resources and Issues guide so she has all the answers to his questions
08:55:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats a great guide if you dont have it
08:58:20 <Betty> OF

09:43:04 <kcmule> thanks. will just have to see what happens, no use worrying about it
10:23:16 <JarnoO> morning all, evening Betty
10:23:23 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Jarno
10:23:48 <Betty> evening JarnoO, hi Forestbewithyou
10:24:09 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Betty
10:24:16 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵
10:37:27 <Betty> OF
11:42:19 <JarnoO> looks like Micah and company arrived after Fountain
12:11:12 <kcmule> OF
12:16:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice to see the reports. tours used to stop on the way out to Mamoth but not this year
13:06:24 <JarnoO> I think Echinus is done for this year, with no significant change the last couple of days. Those eruptions must've thoroughly upset the system
13:08:15 <JarnoO> Steamboat's temperature has steadily climbed the last 24h. Now almost at temperature preceding last eruption
13:12:56 <KorbenC> That was a good day of skiing, got the 5th chair up, after a night with 4 inches of powder, and we got up onto the higher lifts just in time for them to open some runs groomed to perfection, I was in ski heaven the whole day :P
13:13:51 <JarnoO> good to hear you had fun
13:25:01 <KorbenC> Jarno, had some models running for the netherlands this morning, EPS ensembles shows that the upcoming low pressure system might push in some cold weather (30 to 34 in south and 28-31 in north) in the next few days, would be fun
13:25:09 <KorbenC> darn enter key :P
13:25:50 <KorbenC> If the current southern system takes the hint, parts of the Southern, and Eastern Netherlands could see widespread minor snowfall over the next few days :)
13:32:59 <JarnoO> what's really weird, is that a 14d model for north Netherlands calls for ice thickness of 12.5 cm. Majority calls for no ice, though. We'll see what happens
13:36:50 <KorbenC> I hope that you get 12.5cm of ice :P
13:37:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I don't even get that in my freezer.
13:39:11 <JarnoO> well, with such ice thickness you'd get a high degree of eleven cities fever (nearly 200km of continuous ice skating through the eleven cities Frisia counts)... Unfortunately it has been cancelled regardless due to pandemicness, but that wouldn't prevent several, if not many, from at least ice skating it regardless
13:40:14 <KorbenC> The most ice I have seen natruly is like 4 inches :P
13:40:30 <KorbenC> naturally*
13:42:40 <JarnoO> fun fact: the second-largest place in Frisia is not regarded as a city by some because it never got town privileges. Therefore it's not part of the eleven cities through which the ice skating track goes
13:42:49 <KorbenC> OF
14:15:17 <LindaG> Afternoon
14:15:36 <Betty> hi LindaG

15:04:38 <LindaG> :)
15:09:37 <LindaG> I guess its no surprise that we would be without the cam in 2020
15:10:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha, yes...fitting end to the year
15:11:32 <LindaG> we need to petition them to move that static cam to left so we can see beehive
15:11:54 <LindaG> I didn't realize that you could once see it that well
15:12:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> it is rather offset for OF viewing, but was nice to be able to see BH
15:13:18 <LindaG> they could still go to right quite a bit to get OF and still see BH
15:45:07 <Betty> OF
15:46:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> wow 2h1m intvals
16:32:53 <JarnoO> off for the day. Enjoy YNM, should it decide to go rafting

17:47:04 <KorbenC> It is!
17:47:15 <KorbenC> Although after the first 10 minutes it gets hard to see anything :P
