05:45:26 <Joe> Beehive video ~0351
06:28:44 <Joe> This is why people think Bee is erupting whenever they see Geyser Hill in the dark, (camera dome smudge)
06:32:23 <Rice> That does look like it, but you are the master of the night, so I trust you....
06:32:51 <Joe> :)
06:34:11 <Joe> This mornings Bee
06:44:02 <Rice> Not a Good MOnday morning here, left my laptop home, and no one plugged in skidsteer over the weekend, imagine that, it wont start at 8 deg this am.
06:45:42 <Joe> not good
07:02:11 <KorbenC> Good job overnight Joe, lots of predicts and you caught Bee :)
07:03:09 <Joe> :thumbsup:

07:06:47 <KorbenC> Great
07:08:42 <Joe> a screenshot of why it is thought that Bee is erupting when looking at Geyser hill at night is above also
07:09:20 <Joe> bye for sure now :)
07:09:27 <Kat1> :)

07:33:03 <BillR> Rice, eddie chainsawhands needs to appear
07:34:07 <Kat1> Looks like gone to steam
07:34:24 <Mike J> if we're wishing for the disappearance of trees, my vote is the overlook at Fountain.

08:33:45 <JarnoO> morning Dave
08:33:56 <Kat1> Hi Dave
08:34:00 <Linda> Hi JarnoO, Betty,
08:34:09 <Linda> Hi dave
08:34:32 <Linda> Kat1, hi
08:34:46 <JarnoO> OF
08:35:25 <Linda> And hi korben
08:36:41 <Dave from B™> Morning Jarno, Kat, Betty, Forrest
08:37:00 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Dave
08:37:23 <Betty> hey Dave from B™, how are you?
08:38:51 <Dave from B™> I'm good. Life is still busy. Helping in laws hang and setup all their TV's. Trying to get ready for a possible end of Feb van trip to the warmth of AZ
08:38:59 <Dave from B™> How are you doing?
08:40:24 <Betty> we still have a lockdown til feb 14th :-( but I still can go out to work, so it is not too boring :-p
08:41:05 <Dave from B™> What % of Germany pop is vaccinated? US is 5-6%
08:41:10 <Betty> not much else, only shop in the grocery and stay home
08:41:28 <Betty> I guess we are less
08:43:39 <KorbenC> Dave, if you are talking about fully vaccinated in the US it is somewhere from 1 to 2.2%, but I think 5.2-7.1% have at least 1 dose
08:44:01 <Dave from B™> 1 dose is the start
08:45:02 <Betty> 1 dose is 1,9%
08:45:06 <JarnoO> might be Aurum?
08:45:19 <JarnoO> Pump actually
08:45:22 <Betty> found nothing for 2 dose
08:45:23 <Kat1> I think so
08:46:39 <Betty> so 1,9% in Germany for 1 dose
08:51:52 <Betty> hi kc
08:53:40 <Katie> Good morning.
08:53:49 <JarnoO> morning kc, Chris, Katie
08:53:51 <Katie> Dealing with my first customer of the day and I'm already annoyed.
08:53:57 <Kat1> Morning Katie
08:54:14 <JarnoO> ah, one of those days. Great way to start your week
08:54:17 <Betty> morning Katie, ChrisO
08:58:30 <kc (working)> morning
09:04:40 <Linda> Snowmobilers lined up at gate
09:05:06 <Linda> Hi katie, kc and chriso
09:07:34 <Kat1> Got the alert for vaccine - sold out in 3 minutes! No ticket :(
09:08:39 <Dave from B™> Kat, keep trying. It will happen. A lot of people to vaccinate.
09:08:50 <Dave from B™> My inlaws are still not being successful
09:09:06 <Kat1> It is so frustrating!
09:09:51 <Kat1> everyday I see my YNP trip slowly ticking away!
09:10:54 <Dave from B™> You still have a couple months to get your first shot and still make it
09:11:14 <Kat1> Hoping
09:11:47 <Dave from B™> I think we will see a big drop in new cases when we get to 25% for first shot vaccination
09:12:28 <Katie> Have you been following news from Europe?
09:13:06 <Kat1> Not in last few days
09:13:35 <Katie> France is likely to go full lockdown again in a couple days
09:14:08 <Linda> Im on the list, but I think at the bottom for vaccination.
09:14:14 <JarnoO> here you can make an appointment regardless of whether there's stock or not. Government (or organizations on behalf of) sends you a letter if you can come depending on what profession or age you have (crucial professions, e.g. hospital personnel, but soon 90+ and later 80+ elderly have their chance)
09:14:47 <JarnoO> kind of gradual rollout. Theory is that everyone has had a chance of getting the vaccines by summer
09:15:12 <Betty> yes, same here
09:15:47 <Dave from B™> Actually, I heard that in US, younger won't be vaccinated until late summer early fall
09:15:49 <Kat1> Appt only in Florida with very limited supply!
09:16:01 <JarnoO> Riverside
09:16:07 <Dave from B™> I'm considering myself young in this comment only:)
09:16:14 <JarnoO> haha
09:16:17 <Kat1> :)
09:16:20 <Betty> lol
09:16:33 <Betty> greenhorn :-D
09:18:21 <JarnoO> government is trying hard to decrease pressure on the ICUs. If those volnerable or old people are vaccinated, pressure should decrease to be more managable. Eventually that should lead to a decrease in virus measurements needed
09:24:10 <KorbenC> Currently in CO, 445,251 does administered, 80181 people fully vaccinated, so about 1.41%. 49% of hospital beds are in use, and 61% of ICU beds are in use (only about 20% are COVID related)
09:24:37 <KorbenC> Before the pandemic we had 80% of our ICU beds in constant use, so, somehow, COVID made hospital beds go down, lol.
09:24:44 <KorbenC> hospital bed use*
09:24:56 <Dave from B™> Korben, keep those numbers and then report back in 2 weeks. I'm curious to see the change
09:25:26 <JarnoO> I think it was the inverse in the Netherlands regarding ICU beds used
09:25:30 <JarnoO> Bulger
09:25:42 <KorbenC> On Friday we had 0.97% of of the population fully vaccinated Dave ,if that helps.
09:25:44 <Kat1> Some hospital bed use is down due to people staying away from the hospitals and postponing elective procedures
09:25:59 <KorbenC> But it is speeding up quite fast
09:26:45 <KorbenC> Friday was 0.97%, Satuday was 1.11%, Sunday was 1.3%, today 1.47% :)
09:26:53 <Dave from B™> Yep. The next month, vaccinations should increase rapidly
09:27:14 <KorbenC> Working out the kinks takes time, that is for certain
09:27:15 <KorbenC> Hole?
09:27:22 <KorbenC> or is it snow on the tree behind it.
09:27:53 <JarnoO> don't see convincing Hole steam
09:28:29 <57> Kat1, I hope more tourists are like you and choose vaccination over YNP. We can hope?
09:29:20 <KorbenC> I will go to YNP, even if I do not get the vaccine, esspecialy since I might never get the vaccine, lol.
09:30:01 <57> hopefully things will ramp up in the near future
09:30:29 <Kat1> Even though positivity rates will go down - it would make me nervous to go without vaccine
09:30:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We consider you expendable Korben.
09:30:53 <KorbenC> lol
09:30:55 <Kat1> :D
09:31:03 <Dave from B™> haha
09:31:06 <KorbenC> In 20 years, I mgiht be your doctor Kevin, and I will remember this! :P
09:31:32 <Dave from B™> It is Kevin we are trying to save. We need more rocks run over in the future
09:32:39 <Betty> Happy Birthday, my dear old friend :heart::D
09:33:06 <KorbenC> whoms birthday is it?
09:33:22 <Dave from B™> Thanks :D
09:33:29 <Dave from B™> Not mine
09:33:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I do have a few spare rocks here.
09:34:22 <KorbenC> IMHO, when Kevin wants to go, it will be on his own free will with a boulder and a thing of tannerite, lol.
09:35:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Rocks and tannerite are not a good combination.
09:35:49 <Betty> BA
09:36:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have some German trains out for delivery today Betty.
09:36:23 <Betty> perfect timing Kevin
09:36:30 <Betty> do not drop them
09:37:01 <JarnoO> boil from Giantess
09:37:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This one should have the same power unit so I may be able to fix the other one.
09:37:27 <Betty> nice
09:38:14 <Betty> do you know German singer Udo Jürgens?
09:39:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Can't say I do. Any relation to Kurt Jürgens?
09:40:01 <Betty> no
09:40:33 <Betty> I send a link. fits for today
09:45:33 <Betty> you got it?
09:45:38 <JarnoO> 3C
09:45:46 <JarnoO> looks like it's having fun
09:51:38 <KorbenC> big 3c
09:58:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hey Dave, Welcome to sunny Arizona!
10:00:37 <Dave from B™> hahaha. I will be going further south out of the mountains
10:17:15 <Katie> OF
10:21:12 <Katie> Long short? Short long? Medium?
10:21:58 <Betty> looks long for me
10:22:02 <B> Lort shlong
10:22:42 <KorbenC> Let me look...
10:22:44 <Betty> hehehe
10:23:13 <KorbenC> 1016 actually Katie
10:25:26 <KorbenC> 1016:58 for first water, first pause at 3m 58s, then I am pretty sure water went up until 4m 18s
10:28:30 <Betty> a good one, Jimbo
10:28:46 <I'm Not Anti-Mo> dome looks big at -1 F
10:28:52 <I'm Not Anti-Mo> thanks Betty!
10:29:04 <Betty> :-)
10:30:55 <Dave from B™> Jimbo?
10:34:40 <Betty> it´s himself
10:46:04 <KorbenC> This test I just had to take told me I have the directness, logic, and ability to persuade people, of a successful cult leader, how rude :P
10:46:43 <JarnoO> Aurum
10:46:44 <JarnoO> .
10:46:44 <JarnoO> .
10:46:45 <JarnoO> .
10:47:05 <KorbenC> I guess Aurum thinks I woudl be a good cult leader, lol
10:47:31 <JarnoO> I guess I'm giving most of you a heads-up for Aurum, haha
10:47:51 <KorbenC> You gave me about 5 seconds head start :)
10:48:05 <B> I've been involved in a number of cults, both as a leader and a follower. You have more fun as a follower. But you make more money as a leader.
10:48:13 <KorbenC> lol
10:48:24 <KorbenC> That was a good Aurum
10:48:29 <I'm Not Anti-Mo> My big screen Smart TV is ahead of my computer (probably a network thing)
10:51:13 <JarnoO> about 7-10s behind with VLC for the RTMP stream. Not that bad, especially given this page's stream sits around 30s
10:52:12 <KorbenC> JarnoO, what are you using to get rid of the delay, and how do I use it?
10:52:50 <JarnoO> I'm using VLC to stream the RTMP stream now that you can't use Flash in browser anymore
10:53:07 <KorbenC> How do I get VLC to stream it?
10:53:28 <JarnoO> first of all, you need to download VLC, doesn't come with Windows by default
10:53:37 <JarnoO> (if you haven't already have it, that is)
10:53:49 <KorbenC> let me do that really quick...
10:54:36 <KorbenC> Closing MS Teams would make this go so much quicker :P
10:54:36 <JarnoO> also note that it's very, very finicky at times
10:54:50 <KorbenC> OK, done downloading
10:55:00 <JarnoO> obviously install it too
10:55:30 <KorbenC> it is installed
10:55:49 <KorbenC> OK, next step?
10:56:22 <JarnoO> good. Now open it, go to the "Media" tab and click "Open network stream". Should be fifth down the list
10:57:00 <KorbenC> when I open network stream it tells me I need a network URL
10:57:20 <JarnoO> in the URL bar, paste this URL: rtmps://
10:57:31 <JarnoO> I'd click it first and then copy it from the URL bar
10:57:42 <Katie> can't be opened, it says
10:57:46 <KorbenC> "Your imput can't be opened
10:58:09 <JarnoO> in browser it won't open, but if you copy that URL from the URL bar in your browser, you get the full link
10:58:14 <Katie> Korben, open that link in a browser and then copy it from there.
10:58:49 <Katie> lion
10:58:50 <KorbenC> It just brings up an untitled page
10:59:08 <KorbenC> maybe doing something
10:59:16 <KorbenC> got it :D
10:59:24 <JarnoO> good
10:59:39 <Katie> Thanks, Jarno.
10:59:41 <KorbenC> yup, this is way faster, lol. Thanks so much JO and Katie!
10:59:53 <Katie> I need to do this on my other computers, too, but I've got it on on, now.
11:00:09 <Betty> hmm, does not work for me
11:00:12 <KorbenC> Not the best quality, but, good enough
11:00:50 <JarnoO> I can guarantee you VLC will occasionally drop the stream. You can reload it through the Media menu
11:01:37 <KorbenC> I need to pull out my 4th screen and mount it on the wall maybe :)
11:02:51 <JarnoO> I'd need to buy a 3rd screen for that. Though I have no idea how long the RTMP stream will last for, given its only mass-usage was through Adobe Flash
11:03:43 <Katie> I have 3 screens at work but only 1 at home (well, 2 if hubby isn't home and I use TV)
11:03:52 <KorbenC> JO, lucky for me my brother left me his extra screens when he went to college, took a TV and loads up all the screens on the TV instead. :)
11:05:16 <KorbenC> Betty, did you figure it out yet?
11:05:28 <Betty> no
11:05:45 <Betty> it says page cannot be loaded
11:06:06 <Betty> adress is not recognized
11:06:25 <JarnoO> I technically have a 3rd screen in the form of my laptop, but that isn't practical. Too little space on my desk to have it in direct viewing. I do have some space behind the gap between my two screens, so I could use that to put in a high stand for a monitor
11:06:36 <KorbenC> Betty, did you open the link in a new window yet or no?
11:07:00 <Betty> yes I tried, but I get the error message
11:07:13 <JarnoO> Betty, you have to paste the URL in the URL bar into VLC. The error message is irrelevant
11:07:13 <KorbenC> JO, does that weird glitchy back and forth affect the delay at all?
11:07:46 <JarnoO> no idea, Korben, but I'd advise you to reload the stream frequently - say perhaps every 10-20 minutes
11:08:01 <JarnoO> basically what you did with the old stream
11:08:16 <KorbenC> OK! Thanks.
11:08:20 <Betty> I did that too: get this message : Ihre Eingabe konnte nicht geöffnet werden: VLC kann die MRL 'rtmps://' nicht öffnen. Sehen Sie für Details im Fehlerprotokoll nach.
11:08:42 <JarnoO> right
11:09:09 <JarnoO> there's another RTMP URL available. It's somewhere in the archives
11:09:49 <JarnoO> Betty, could you try this one? rtmps://
11:10:34 <Betty> same error message
11:10:59 <JarnoO> yikes. What OS do you use?
11:11:27 <Betty> OS?
11:11:52 <JarnoO> operating system, like Windows, iOS, Linux, etc.
11:12:29 <Betty> windows
11:12:37 <JarnoO> hm, then it shouldn't be an issue
11:12:42 <JarnoO> weird
11:12:49 <Betty> maybe the player is too old. I do an update
11:13:03 <JarnoO> do that first
11:13:13 <Betty> I loaded it about 3 years ago :-p
11:13:14 <KorbenC> This is why it is good to know an IT person, they can troubleshoot :)
11:13:29 <JarnoO> ah, yeah, then that could be the issue
11:13:42 <Betty> :thumbsup:
11:16:40 <Betty> yay....17% downloaded :-p
11:17:20 <Betty> hope it is done before I have to go to work again
11:17:58 <Betty> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:22:32 <JarnoO> Daisy ie
11:45:14 <Betty> OF ie
11:49:26 <Betty> it´s working now after the update :-) :thumbsup:
11:49:51 <JarnoO> good!
11:50:02 <Katie> Cool. I'm glad to have more watchers in real time that might be seeing things I'm not in time for me to react.
11:50:52 <Betty> well, My connection is bad, so I mostly have a spinning circle :-p
11:54:10 <Betty iPad> I try with the pad
11:54:32 <KorbenC> Hi Kevin
11:54:39 <KorbenC> wait, not, you are Betty :P
11:54:47 <Betty iPad> pffff
11:54:55 <KorbenC> I saw the "iPad" and went to Kevin, lol.
11:55:06 <Betty iPad> hahaha
12:05:21 <JarnoO> Dome
12:17:06 <JarnoO> nice steam on 'tess
12:17:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is snowing about a mile from my house Korben.
12:18:42 <JarnoO> Lion
12:18:43 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, not surpised, but were you in your bunker?
12:18:47 <KorbenC> yup :)
12:19:08 <Katie> sure... I go away for 2 minutes...
12:19:19 <KorbenC> minor
12:19:25 <KorbenC> unless it restarts
12:19:26 <JarnoO> so far
12:19:50 <KorbenC> minor :)
12:20:33 <JarnoO> minor
12:20:33 <KorbenC> JO, what is the longest "pause" you have seen in a Lion eruption?
12:22:16 <JarnoO> 1217:59 2m00s. Not a minor, not a major, medium
12:22:34 <JarnoO> and I can't read time
12:22:41 <JarnoO> 1m00s
12:22:46 <JarnoO> so minor
12:23:18 <KorbenC> :p
12:23:26 <JarnoO> I stopped the replay at 1219:03, which somehow caused me to register 1218:59 as 1219:59
12:23:52 <KorbenC> lol
12:25:03 <kc (working)> well KL you wanted a hockey team this is what you get
12:25:05 <JarnoO> anyway, I have no idea on the longest pause. That's the biggest mystery of Lion - what counts as pause and what counts as separate eruption? One thing I'm definitely sure of, is that a 1m pause cutoff doesn't do it. Seems to be more in the direction of 5 minutes or so
12:27:22 <JarnoO> predicting the next series start may be easier - I think the only interval that matters is between series end and series start. That appears to be fairly constant at any given time, depending on series length. Due to the random nature of series length, you can't predict series start to series start
12:28:53 <JarnoO> which draws a parallell between that of Pohutu in New Zealand. They predict time between eruption end to eruption start (about 45m if I recall HK's blog correctly), as duration is random
12:38:52 <JarnoO> roar
12:39:23 <JarnoO> darn... That was the most promising roar yet
12:39:42 <JarnoO> another one
12:40:19 <JarnoO> Dome
12:44:29 <Dave from B™> A check was just returned that we mailed to a vendor on Nov 2. I wonder where it was stck?
12:45:41 <JarnoO> some Bee splashing
12:48:26 <JarnoO> Lion
12:48:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Phoenix Dave
12:50:28 <Dave from B™> Mail snowbirds?
12:51:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Every piece of mail gets lost in Phoenix
12:57:41 <JarnoO> 1248:10vns (within 7s of start) ≥3m39s+10s (heavy post-eruptive activity with water). Next Lion @ 1356±5m if series continues
12:58:12 <JarnoO> Imp surge
12:58:40 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, Happy Bday!
12:59:20 <LindaGL> hi everyone
13:00:05 <JarnoO> hi Linda

13:04:47 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, :thumbsup:
13:06:30 <LindaGL> Maybe a Beeday for Keving
13:06:44 <LindaGL> or just Kevin
13:08:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I-15 is closed between Vegas and Barstow due to snow.
13:09:08 <LindaGL> Its been snowing by the Grand Canyon
13:09:35 <LindaGL> Those pictures are always gorgeous, snow in the canyon
13:12:16 <LindaGL> OF
13:12:29 <LindaGL> Late again
13:13:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Snowing at Zion too
13:13:08 <Dave from B™> Kevin, that is crazy.
13:13:28 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, Isn't that the mohave desert along 15?
13:13:37 <Dave from B™> The Barstow LV closure, that is
13:13:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Flagstaff is really nuts:
13:14:22 <LindaGL> wow, lot of snow
13:18:08 <LindaGL> scroll down
13:19:51 <JarnoO> going to make for some waterfalls into the Canyon once it melts
13:20:17 <LindaGL> they had cloud inversion yesterday
13:20:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Zion
13:33:09 <JarnoO> Dep ie
13:33:12 <KorbenC> dep
13:36:25 <Katie> That's it. I can't go to the restroom anymore. Ever.
13:36:51 <JarnoO> hm... Seems like Whirligig either has eruptions which continue while the pool is below overflow or the logger is running behind by about 12 minutes. Yesterday's 1232:26 E isn't quite 1245 ie, even if the first spans 6 minutes across 3 data points
13:37:37 <JarnoO> am thinking the logger is running behind, though, as it likes to either run fast or slow and rarely on time
13:42:44 <JarnoO> Whirligig's intervals have steadily been increasing. Now hovering just over 3h, was 2½h a few days ago. Another symptom of the disturbance. Once it wanes, Whirligig should speed up again
14:09:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Zion is pretty right now:
14:11:21 <Betty> nice
14:11:34 <JarnoO> a sight you don't see every day
14:11:37 <Betty> sigh, I wanna be there
14:15:00 <JarnoO> Riverside
14:15:03 <LindaGL> that is pretty, me too betty
14:16:07 <JarnoO> Grand
14:16:39 <KorbenC> nice
14:24:33 <JarnoO> 2nd becoming unlikely
14:25:02 <Katie> I thought I saw water a moment ago, but with vaseline on the lens, it's hard to tell
14:25:25 <JarnoO> occasionally there are streamers visible
14:25:47 <I'm Not Anti-Mo> Saw one
14:36:28 <JackQ> OF window
14:37:04 <KorbenC> Hi JackQ, are you new here?
14:37:19 <Katie> Thanks, Jack. I needed a heads up.
14:38:00 <JackQ> KorbenC, yes, Katie, yw
14:44:31 <KorbenC> JackQ, welcome! sorry for the late response, was talking on the phone :)
14:51:16 <Betty> OF
14:53:25 <Betty> Time for sleep, night all. Kevin, enjoy the rest of your birthday.
14:53:36 <JarnoO> cya Betty
14:54:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good Knight Betty
14:55:09 <JarnoO> Dome ie
14:56:04 <LindaGL> Betty, night
14:58:20 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, Is it unusual for it to snow in Zion?
15:02:28 <JarnoO> splkash
15:03:16 <KorbenC> That looked like a good splash, for 11h anyways :)
15:03:34 <JarnoO> definitely. Reminiscent of pre-1d intervals
15:03:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not unusual, but not common either.
15:03:58 <KorbenC> Beehive continues to keep us guessing. :)
15:04:05 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, :thumbsup:
15:04:13 <KorbenC> Kevin, very true
15:05:20 <LindaGL> I think we are expecting some snow
15:05:39 <KorbenC> another splash, nto as big as the last one
15:06:23 <KorbenC> Linda, you are supposed to get rain mixed with snow, very small amounts of accumulation.
15:06:57 <KorbenC> bah
15:06:59 <Katie> Boo
15:07:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Flagstaff is unreal right now
15:07:11 <Katie> Okay. Back
15:07:16 <KorbenC> yup :)
15:07:18 <LindaGL> KorbenC, yeah, I was hoping for an inch or two at least :(
15:07:19 <JarnoO> little hiccup
15:07:38 <JarnoO> AL
15:07:40 <Dave from B™> And, here I am, with no white
15:07:47 <KorbenC> Linda, maybe if you get very very lucky on Tuesday or Wednesday, 1% for anything over 1 inch.
15:08:18 <KorbenC> Wednesday or Thursday, oops.
15:08:38 <LindaGL> They put salt brine down so not sure what they expect to happen.
15:08:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is because your check didn't arrive in time.
15:12:44 <KorbenC> Still good Bee splashing, looks hot.
15:15:03 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, wow looks like just about a white out at Flagstaff
15:16:27 <Dave from B™> Kevin, can get to snow quicker than I can. This is crazy
15:17:53 <LindaGL> Dave from B™, lol
15:18:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is less than 60 miles from me
15:18:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
15:19:04 <Dave from B™> Time to go home. It seems winter is almost over in Biliings. Have a great evening everyone!
15:19:29 <JarnoO> cya Dave
15:19:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good Knight Dave
15:20:56 <LindaGL> Dave from B™, night
15:21:13 <JarnoO> 3C ie
15:28:08 <JarnoO> Dome
15:28:32 <AYates> Just logged on to say the same
15:31:19 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, wow snowing at the loop, cant see a thing
15:33:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It can get nasty there Linda. The highway was closed there earlier. May be closed again.
15:34:12 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, yeah I guess they are pretty high
15:34:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like the road is open but moving slowly
15:34:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I-15 is open again.
15:35:26 <LindaGL> thats good. will be fun to see a train go through that snow at flagstaff
15:36:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Check out the Cable cam Linda. Shows where the snow is.
15:37:16 <LindaGL> :thumbsup:
15:39:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They have 50 trains between Belen NM to Kansas City heading west. Sounds like the track is open at the derailment site.
15:41:39 <JarnoO> Daisy ie
15:41:49 <KorbenC> yea :)
15:50:45 <KorbenC> roar
15:51:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Blizzard in Flagstaff now.
16:01:44 <JarnoO> Dome
16:08:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> hi there, sorry I am late for work
16:08:36 <KorbenC> GO STEAMBOAT, hey
16:08:39 <Katie> No prob - releasing
16:08:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks, got it
16:09:04 <JarnoO> afternoon Graham
16:09:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> afternoon
16:10:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> what up with the rioting dutchmen?
16:10:28 <JarnoO> they don't like curfew
16:10:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> what hours?
16:10:58 <JarnoO> 2100-0400
16:11:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> that is an early start. 0400 wouldnt be a problem for me
16:12:03 <JarnoO> there are exceptions on curfew, for example an evening walk with the dog, work and calamities
16:12:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They let you out to eat seafood?
16:13:14 <JarnoO> if you order it you can let it be delivered. Supermarkets et cetera have to be closed by 2100
16:13:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am sure the raw herring is still allowed
16:14:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Found a place for you Graham:
16:15:07 <JarnoO> catering industry has been closed for months now, no events to go to. The cumulative effect of all that thus leads to riots
16:15:37 <KorbenC> looks a bit like my backyard, just 5 inches instead of a foot.
16:15:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I can relate Jarno. We weren't meant to be locked up in cans.
16:16:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> mmm some nice snowdrifts there
16:16:25 <JarnoO> well, I have it easy since I don't go out unless I need to, even before the virus
16:17:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> a year ago today I came home from my winter trip to Old Faithful
16:17:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I want to see the first train through that!
16:17:49 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, me too. I think they are snowdrunk on that channwl
16:18:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha, should be fun. have they stopped running on that line?
16:18:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> have they started vaccinations JarnoO>
16:18:58 <JarnoO> yes
16:19:45 <KorbenC> JarnoO, if you don't go out unless you need to, do oyu ever go for a walk, or a bike ride? lol
16:21:16 <JarnoO> I don't do a walk. I do go by bike to places I need to be (trainstation before virus and currently as well if needs be), but otherwise nah
16:21:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There was a derailment last knight Graham. Trains just starting to move again.
16:27:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> sorry to hear that Kevin
16:43:34 <KorbenC> Bulher
16:43:40 <KorbenC> Bukger*
16:43:45 <KorbenC> Bulger*
16:43:48 <KorbenC> and already done :P
16:44:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> artie?
16:45:02 <JarnoO> not sure
16:45:54 <JarnoO> probably just passive steam
16:47:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats a nasty blurred spot
16:52:53 <JarnoO> in case you missed, Graham, Bee has started to look promising since about 1500. Also had an overnight eruption today, so maybe it's starting to become more regular
16:53:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> tats good to know, i saw the morning time
17:00:12 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, loop is visible
17:01:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> All white
17:01:45 <LindaGL> looks pretty
17:05:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I really want to see the first train through Flagstaff.
17:11:17 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, what time do you think it will go through, is anything running?
17:11:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> dome
17:11:49 <LindaGL> GO STEAMBOAT, hi
17:11:55 <LindaGL> oh doggies
17:12:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They started moving things out a couple of hours ago. Could be within the next few hours.
17:15:10 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The Amtrak due yesterday in Flagstaff at 2032 just left Albuquerque.
17:16:43 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, :thumbsup:
17:17:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sounds like there may be one in a few minutes.
17:17:58 <LindaGL> cool
17:19:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> snow gauge 6 miles from the cam had 27".
17:19:58 <LindaGL> thats serious
17:20:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Eastbound has the green light.
17:25:46 <LindaGL> oh dinnertime I'll miss bee and the train
17:39:06 <L> Kevin L™ 🌵, that was fun
17:43:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was interesting.
17:44:18 <L> I thought more snow would fly
17:45:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> So did I
17:46:21 <L> Maybe wind blowing snow off tracks
17:47:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Probably rides higher than we thought too.
17:47:54 <JarnoO> Dome 1747ie
17:50:37 <L> Yeah, but engines looked nice against snow
17:52:25 <JarnoO> flower
17:52:53 <L> Wow already
18:03:28 <Zpa> OF Wi
18:03:52 <Zpa> OF window
18:06:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> i guess someone else has the cam. goodnight
18:06:33 <JarnoO> night Graham
18:07:01 <ChrisO> Doggies!!! :)
18:11:22 <L> GO STEAMBOAT, night
18:11:52 <L> ChrisO, :)
18:12:36 <JarnoO> OF is post-eruptive
18:13:09 <JarnoO> or at least, very likely so based on that capture
18:23:56 <JarnoO> lol, cam doesn't know when to switch to B&W and color
18:42:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like a fish tank.
18:43:08 <LindaGL> I was wondering if Im the only one super pixelating
18:43:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nope
18:44:01 <LindaGL> annoying
18:44:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just happy we have it this good!
18:44:49 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, :)
18:44:58 <LindaGL> a train at Ft. Madison
18:45:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> A meet!
18:46:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks VERY cold
18:47:23 <LindaGL> snows really blowing
18:48:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I remember guard duty in Germany like that. :P
18:48:29 <LindaGL> :D
18:49:15 <LindaGL> I do enjoy a good snowstorm
18:53:40 <JarnoO> Fun to read Washburn's diary from his expedition to Yellowstone. Also found that there's actually truth to the story that they saw OF erupt upon entering the basin. They found the Firehole, travelling west from Yellowstone Lake, and followed its course.
18:53:43 <JarnoO> Aurum?
18:54:23 <LindaGL> looks like it :)
18:54:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think so
18:55:04 <JarnoO> "Judge, then, of our astonishment on entering this basin, to see at no great distance before us an immense body of sparkling water, projected suddenly and with terrific force into the air to the height of over one hundred feet. We had found a real geyser."
18:55:37 <LindaGL> that's cool, Jarno
18:55:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Discovery of Yellowstone?
18:55:54 <JarnoO> if you want to read it yourself: :)
18:56:46 <LindaGL> thx
18:59:45 <JarnoO> Dome
19:01:25 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, shoveling flagstaff
19:02:29 <JarnoO> oh wait, that's Langford's diary, haha
19:02:42 <JarnoO> I'm not good with names, heh
19:02:49 <LindaGL> :lol:
19:03:05 <LindaGL> I thought it said washburn
19:03:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Even have a power shovel.
19:03:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think it is the same thing Jarno. I got mine before the internet.
19:04:28 <JarnoO> you're correct, Kevin
19:04:38 <JarnoO> I hadn't seen its front cover yet
19:04:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I may have to stay up for the Chief toknight. It shoud be fun.
19:05:15 <JarnoO> On Grotto: "Private Williamson, one of our escort, crawled through an aperture and looked into the discharging orifice."
19:08:40 <JarnoO> interestingly the party described Crested as having an ultra-marine hue, calm and with a small stream of water originating from the pool
19:09:17 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, when is it due?
19:09:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Amazing the geysers they saw.
19:10:35 <JarnoO> so I wonder if Crested's rim in the past partially broke (maybe similar to Ear), resulting in a lowered water level and its current activity
19:10:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like 2219 mst
19:10:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> For the Chief Linda
19:11:09 <LindaGL> Kevin L™ 🌵, :thumbsup:
19:24:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Snowing in Flagstaff again.
19:25:28 <KorbenC> Snowing so hard here right now I can walk out on my deck without snow, then walk down the stairs, turn around, and not be able to see the deck :)
19:27:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ugh.
19:27:09 <KorbenC> no, awesome :)
19:28:06 <KorbenC> Jake is not dead :P
19:29:59 <KorbenC> Good luck with the night shift Joe, and enjoy the cheif Kevin.
19:30:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good knight Korben.
19:31:07 <LindaGL> KorbenC, night
19:31:12 <JarnoO> cya Korben
20:01:29 <JarnoO> Daisy
20:02:17 <JarnoO> off for the day. Have fun in the night shift, Joe
