08:20:14 <KorbenC(phone)> Hi all
08:20:50 <KorbenC(phone)> Kat, congrats on making it there, you had me concerned when you had car problems
08:21:06 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Korben
08:21:10 <KorbenC(phone)> Forestbewithyou, hi
08:21:49 <Kat> What's up with SB? Nothing happening yesterday
08:22:13 <Kat> Hi Korben!
08:22:25 <KorbenC(phone)> Had a good day of storms yesterday Forest, lots of big hail.l, I measured one at 1.5in:D
08:22:33 <Forestbewithyou> I saw that
08:22:39 <Forestbewithyou> There were lots of warnings
08:23:07 <Forestbewithyou> Did you go out or stay at home?
08:23:16 <KorbenC(phone)> Both
08:23:48 <Forestbewithyou> Did you make it to the Tornado Warnings or were they too far away
08:24:00 <KorbenC(phone)> I caught a nice line at my home at 3PM, than followed it NE.
08:24:20 <Forestbewithyou> Cool
08:24:44 <KorbenC(phone)> Forestbewithyou, no, no tornadoes yesterday for me. I considered heading to the Limon storm but it was dying anyways.
08:25:02 <Forestbewithyou> Thats what I figured but figured I would ask
08:25:56 <KorbenC(phone)> Forestbewithyou, severe storms might head your way next week, at least GFS thinks so.
08:26:13 <Forestbewithyou> Yikes I won''t be here :D
08:26:27 <Forestbewithyou> Its almost like it knows :D
08:26:35 <KorbenC(phone)> Lol, of course not.:p
08:27:06 <KorbenC(phone)> Where are you going, if you don't mind me asking
08:27:51 <Forestbewithyou> I am going to AZ UT NV CA area
08:28:08 <KorbenC(phone)> Nice.
08:28:34 <Forestbewithyou> Yea its so that I can see the total lunar eclipse on my birthday

08:33:06 <KorbenC(phone)1> Too bad Denver was cold and capped yesterday, otherwise you would have gotten some good storms.

08:41:07 <linda> woah to me, they officially cancelled my roosevelt reservation
08:41:37 <Kat> Roads closed from Mammoth to Norris, to Canyon and Madison.
08:42:00 <GO R PLUS 2> Feels good but will be really nice tomorrow
08:42:04 <linda> :(
08:42:27 <linda> GO R PLUS 2, Park tomorrow?
08:42:48 <Kat> Now wonder if I should head back North toward Madison
08:42:50 <GO R PLUS 2> Rock slides i gather for some of it at least
08:43:02 <GO R PLUS 2> So no NS travel
08:43:30 <GO R PLUS 2> No, just Monday and no meetings
08:43:42 <linda> ah, that's the best
08:43:52 <Kat> Looks like OF South is open and Madison to OF
08:44:12 <linda> Kat, where are you staying?

08:44:25 <Kat> Nice!!

09:10:36 <Joe> Dome again
09:25:08 <Joe> Indy static? or wishful seeing?
09:26:22 <Kat1> Aurum went

09:31:23 <Joe> Lion
09:32:18 <Kevin 🥔> Missed Aurum again but at least glad it is erupting.
09:32:59 <Joe> We were on OF but Kat got it
09:35:36 <Kevin 🥔> That thing just hated me this year.
09:36:53 <Joe> well you did say long ago that it was evil.
09:37:32 <Joe> Dome ie
10:45:39 <Kat1> Lovely day in the park!!:(
10:45:42 <Kevin 🥔> I didn’t know snow was square.
11:36:42 <Kevin 🥔> Yuck! Mod snow. :p
11:37:35 <Kevin 🥔> More
11:37:54 <Craig M> i'm gonna have to bring a good sleeping bag 2 weeks from now
11:38:21 <Jeff> i might need to buy some snow tires lol
11:38:32 <linda> Kevin 🥔, that's because you visited lol
11:38:35 <Kat> It's very yucky!
11:38:38 <Craig M> dome is happy today
11:38:47 <linda> Jeff, hi
11:38:50 <linda> Craig M, hi
11:39:04 <Jeff> hi linda
11:39:13 <Kat> Hi all!
11:39:23 <linda> Kat, hi again
11:39:39 <Kat> :)
11:39:39 <linda> Kat, looking at geysers?
11:39:41 <Jeff> hi kat
11:39:51 <Craig M> hi linda
11:40:11 <Kat> Yep! It's nasty out!
11:40:12 <Craig M> Kat are you in basin?
11:40:23 <Craig M> nvm
11:40:26 <Kat> Yes Craig
11:40:30 <Craig M> scrolled up XD
11:40:55 <linda> look at all those people waiting to come in and freeze
11:40:55 <Craig M> are Giantess water levels still high with dome's series today?
11:41:25 <Kat> Not much to see though, visibility is awful, wet and cold!
11:41:54 <Kat> I need to check again Craig, but I think so
11:41:54 <linda> :( you need a wolf
11:42:21 <Kat> I did but roads closed earlier, not sure status right now.
11:42:36 <Jeff> kat can you make sure the visibility is decent when i get up there in a week and a half lol
11:43:20 <Kat> Sure Jeff! Maybe I'll make it warmer too, just for you!
11:43:54 <Craig M> have you simply tried turning the park off and back on again?
11:44:03 <Jeff> i can bring some warmth with me when i leave arizona. itll be 107 the day i leave
11:44:24 <linda> Craig M, lol
11:45:00 <Kat> Craig M, lol!
11:46:43 <Kat> Back at car... Too wet!
11:47:55 <Jeff> this would be a day i just stay in the dorms lol
11:48:18 <linda> Kat, :(
11:48:22 <Craig M> see i'm weird and like the bad weather days in the park
11:48:40 <Craig M> you basically get the whole boardwalk to yourself and can actually hear everything. super peaceful
11:48:54 <Jeff> well id probably go out until im too cold or wet
11:49:01 <Kat> Craig M, weird no, but I can take only so long!
11:49:19 <Craig M> Good gear is a must though. It's probably the minnesotan in me
11:50:01 <Jeff> see i dont have the best gear cause arizona doesnt really require it lol
11:50:17 <linda> Jeff, lol
11:51:03 <Jeff> and im the type of person whos too stubborn to even wear a sweatshirt when it starts getting cold in the park lol ill wear shorts and a t shirt all day on my days off
11:51:45 <Craig M> Jeff i was in AZ visiting my brother back in april. It was so nice to have a break from the cold
11:52:10 <Jeff> i love the winter weather in arizona when its 60s and sunny but i hate the heat of the summer lol
11:52:49 <Jeff> for someone who lives in arizona i actually prefer the cold
11:52:55 <Kat> Roads just opened back up, Mammoth to Norris to Canyon.
11:53:36 <Jeff> wonder if traffic at west gate will clear up soon?
11:53:57 <Kat> Hope so
11:55:24 <Craig M> wow. it went from bad to worse real fast out there
11:55:51 <Craig M> coffee and book weather
11:56:17 <Kat> Agree Craig
11:57:28 <Jeff> this would be bringing a lot of people into lower hams for coffee
12:02:37 <Kat> Would love some right now!
12:05:22 <Kat> Dome
12:10:10 <Jeff> a lot of people probably getting coffee or hot chocolate right now from the upper store
12:11:14 <Kevin 🥔> At least you got Aurum Kat.
12:11:14 <Kat> It's probably packed!
12:11:42 <Kat> Kevin 🥔, :thumbsup:
12:11:54 <Jeff> i wouldnt be surprised. ive been hearing a lot of the stores are hitting or breaking records in sales
12:13:23 <Kat> I would imagine they are, very little open, food is all take out. Very little mask wearing!
12:14:08 <Kat> I need a milkshake from Lower Hams!!
12:14:27 <Kat> When does it open?
12:14:30 <Jeff> im not 100% sure if we are or arent doing shakes this year
12:14:47 <Jeff> i start the 7th with the store actually opening the 11th
12:14:53 <Kat> :(
12:15:10 <Kat> Guess I'll miss you this year!
12:15:39 <Jeff> when do you leave
12:15:53 <Kat> East Entrance road is closed!
12:16:10 <Jeff> hasnt that been closed all day so far due to weather?
12:16:27 <Kat> I think the 2nd?
12:16:37 <Kat> They just sent it again.
12:16:46 <Craig M> huh apparently in that mess grand is erupting
12:17:00 <Jeff> so ill miss you by a couple days. i leave the 4th and arrive in west the 5th
12:17:16 <Kat> Barely see it!
12:50:53 <KorbenC(tornado> Is Forest here?
12:51:21 <JarnoO💤> the forest has been blown away by a tornado. Or do you mean the person?
12:52:45 <KorbenC(tornado> Person
12:53:09 <JarnoO💤> not in the list
13:00:16 <KorbenC(tornado> Nice tornado right now, biggest of the year for me, although it is stuck in the rain
13:01:33 <🍕> I nice tornado? I thought they were all mean!
13:02:16 <KorbenC(tornado> It is being nice for now, I am a ways away from it and it is still EF0
13:03:57 <🍕> Even an EF0 can get ugly.
13:04:34 <KorbenC(tornado> Not in the mood for an argument now, lol
13:05:02 <KorbenC(tornado> JarnoO, I see A in the Atlantic is tropical
13:05:21 <JarnoO💤> do you reckon that tornado is part of that Gulf of Mexico disturbance the other day?
13:05:59 <KorbenC(tornado> Not a chance 🌝
13:06:50 <KorbenC(tornado> Too far, and I thought that D went towards Kansas
13:08:37 <KorbenC(tornado> JarnoO💤, take a look at GFS a week from today, it thinks a hurricane 🌀, is going to from north of the EPAC trade winds
13:13:57 <JarnoO💤> would be nice to have a hurricane in the EPac
13:15:13 <People are nuts> West Gate finally clearing out after 4 hours
13:25:28 <Craig M> dome
13:37:53 <Craig M> "the sky was angry that day"
13:50:23 <Jeff> hey betty
13:50:54 <Betty> hi Jeff, how are you today?
13:51:27 <Jeff> not too bad just enjoying the coolish weather today before it starts consistently hitting 100+
13:52:47 <Betty> I wish it was warmer here, only between 50 and 60s
13:53:25 <Jeff> its 82 here right now
13:54:02 <Craig M> dome on static
13:54:21 <JarnoO💤> I'm actually enjoying the cooler weather. Finally not a Mediterranean-like climate but something that's more usual for the region
13:54:41 <Betty> hi Craig M, evening JarnoO💤
13:54:52 <Craig M> o/
13:54:54 <JarnoO💤> evening Betty
13:55:00 <JarnoO💤> afternoon all
13:55:02 <Betty> I find it is too cold
13:55:09 <Joe> Betty, I owe you an apology, yesterday you tried to point out that I had entered 1554 instead of 1654, I spaced it out completely, sorry.
13:55:39 <Betty> hi Joe
13:55:51 <Betty> for Riverside?
13:55:59 <Joe> HYes
13:56:13 <Joe> yes
13:56:22 <Betty> oh, no need for that :-)
13:57:27 <Joe> I have senior moments I guess, thanks :)
13:58:31 <Betty> lol, no problem
13:58:53 <JarnoO💤> a senior having senior moments... Sure... :D
13:59:08 <Betty> :-D
13:59:12 <Joe> JarnoO💤, >(
14:23:31 <Betty> wow, that view is really bad today
14:34:45 <Craig M> somehow the quality was better with the snow
14:38:54 <12> Is that a bear on the right?
14:39:37 <12> Just went out of view as I was typing...
14:40:14 <Betty> where?
14:40:19 <JarnoO💤> the colors visible when it was snowing are relatively close to each other - no stuff like green and red close together. That means it can cheat a bit by combining areas with for a camera observationally indistinguishable colors.
14:40:35 <Betty> did not pay attention..
14:40:51 <JarnoO💤> and much less colors overall, those are bandwidth hogs
14:41:20 <12> It was on the down basin view between cam and Grand.
14:42:37 <Betty> there were 2 bison earlier
14:50:46 <LindaG> hello all
14:51:12 <Betty> hi Linda
14:51:19 <LindaG> Betty, hi
15:06:25 <Betty> wow, no BH today? Just saw that
15:16:14 <Laura> no steamboat yet I see
15:16:34 <Laura> And good afternoon, everyone.
15:17:24 <Betty> hi Laura, unfortunately no Steamboat yet
15:18:18 <Laura> It would be just our luck that it goes dormant right before the summer season, but three years of regular activity has been pretty awesome
15:18:35 <KorbenC> Laura, hi
15:18:52 <Laura> how are you, Korben?
15:18:58 <KorbenC> Yes, the past 3 years have been awesome, I never thought I would have the chance to see more than 1sb in my lifetime :D
15:19:05 <KorbenC> I am doing great Laura! How about yourself?
15:19:21 <Laura> Good! Getting ready for Yellowstone! Can't wait!
15:19:26 <Betty> hi KorbenC
15:19:32 <KorbenC> Hey Betty
15:20:30 <Laura> Cold weather gear check, geology book pile check, radios and sun hat on the way
15:20:41 <KorbenC> Laura, Norris had symptoms of a disturbance recently, which, as Jarno figured out, tends to result in double the last interval. So I think SB will erupt in a weeks time, but that is not for certain.
15:21:11 <KorbenC> lol, I used to pack a long time before a trip, now I pack the night before I leave and then not get any sleep that night figuring out waht I forgot. :)
15:21:31 <Laura> Oh interesting, a spring disturbance?
15:22:05 <KorbenC> Yes, it only lasted a few days, but seemes to be having the same effect on SB as a normal D would.
15:22:27 <Laura> Wow. Good to know.
15:23:15 <Laura> Well our trip got a little more complicated - my husband's work is sending him to a conference in Scottsdale the Thursday and Friday before we were supposed to leave on vacation
15:23:44 <Laura> So we had to figure out how that was going to work out
15:24:05 <KorbenC> It all seems to work out in the end.
15:24:33 <Laura> Mostly I just pulled my books, want to make sure I have them all in one place. I've been reading them a lot and scattering them around the house
15:25:05 <KorbenC> Haha, good to know I am not th only one who goes on a reading spree about YNP right before I go to YNP.
15:25:31 <Laura> The new roadside geology of Idaho comes out May 27
15:25:47 <Laura> Trying to find out if it will be available on Kindle
15:27:26 <Laura> Also just got my print copy of geysers of yellowstone 5th edition from GOSA, I have had it on Kindle for a while but wanted the print version for the trip
15:28:02 <KorbenC> TGOY is a great book, that's for certain.
15:28:32 <Laura> I've been reading it since the third edition. Can't wait to finally see it all for real!
15:28:48 <KorbenC> First time to YNP this year?
15:29:13 <Laura> I have never been at all, Korben. This is my first trip to the park ever
15:29:33 <Betty> wow, that´s cool, Laura
15:29:42 <KorbenC> Ah, nice.
15:29:52 <Betty> it will be a blast
15:30:06 <KorbenC> You will finally see what geysers look like without the square pixels and random pauses :)
15:30:13 <Laura> Oh, yes, Betty!
15:31:01 <Laura> We start at the OF snow lodge. My husband is more laid back so I figure in the evenings while he kicks back in our hotel I can roam the upper geyser basin
15:31:25 <Laura> Plus spending an entire day in UGB at some point
15:31:40 <KorbenC> Full day in the UGB is the best.
15:31:54 <Laura> Norris of course, largely dictated by steamboat.
15:32:03 <KorbenC> I know I will be waking in the basin from 6AM to 9-10PM every day this year.
15:32:50 <KorbenC> I have no idea where the word "waking" cam from, lol, I am experiencing Stage 4 Lindavitis
15:33:32 <LindaG> KorbenC, :-/
15:33:48 <KorbenC> Hi Linda, I knew you were here somewhere.
15:34:09 <LindaG> KorbenC, hi, just lurkint
15:34:18 <LindaG> *lurking
15:35:20 <JarnoO💤> I'm definitely not sticking to a schedule if I'm in Yellowstone. I get up, make myself ready and get out where I want to go and then stick around until I deem it sufficient for the day or whenever I need to be on my lonesome for a bit
15:35:34 <JarnoO💤> probably will be a few overnighters in there, that's for sure
15:36:06 <KorbenC> JO, are you planning for 2022?
15:36:22 <Laura> Now, someone told me 4.5 is the channel for GOSA, is that correct?
15:36:32 <KorbenC> yes
15:36:44 <JarnoO💤> I'm not going to comment on that, Korben :)
15:37:04 <KorbenC> JarnoO💤, lol
15:37:55 <Laura> That's the one thing I still need to do, order radios, but waiting to see if I also have to order a hard copy of Roadside Geo of Idaho
15:38:27 <Laura> It is supposed to come out May 27, trying to find out if it is going to be on Kindle. If not, I'll order the hard copy and the radios
15:40:09 <Betty> of
15:43:40 <Laura> Is it unusually foggy in the basin, or is that the webcam?
15:43:57 <JarnoO💤> precipitation
15:44:37 <Betty> the afternoon shower
15:44:40 <Laura> Ah, gotcha. I did see they were predicting rain for Yellowstone for most of the week, with some snow overnight
15:47:43 <Betty> that snow is as big as pixels :-)
15:48:53 <LindaG> :)
15:49:13 <KorbenC> Betty, green snow
15:49:30 <Betty> :-)
15:51:38 <Betty> daisy ie
16:03:39 <Craig M> dome
16:26:47 <KorbenC> Hi Kat
16:26:50 <KorbenC> Where are you?
16:27:55 <Kat> Lower Hams, right this minute
16:27:56 <Craig M> dome
16:28:31 <KorbenC> Nice Kat
16:28:52 <KorbenC> Kat, have you braved the elements yet?
16:29:10 <Kat> Some, so wet earlier...
16:30:24 <Kat> No Bee yet?
16:30:31 <KorbenC> Tell BH I say hello
16:31:09 <Kat> I Sure will! Saw yesterday's eruption!
16:31:57 <Betty> hi Kat, how you enjoy your trip :-)
16:32:16 <Kat> Bee splashing
16:32:58 <Kat> Well, there have been a few set backs! Overall, loving it!
16:34:46 <LindaG> Kat, :thumbsup:
16:35:13 <KorbenC> BH splashed for me, thanks Kat. :)
16:35:47 <Kat> I fell and cracked some ribs the morning I was leaving Denver! Painful and cramping my style!
16:36:06 <LindaG> Kat, omg
16:38:20 <🥶> Bet you aren’t carrying a backpack.
16:38:42 <Kat> Not right now
16:38:58 <Laura> Ouch, Kat!
16:39:05 <KorbenC> Kat, ouch, sorry.
16:39:07 <JarnoO💤> roar
16:39:17 <JarnoO💤> and fail
16:39:26 <Kat> :)
16:40:12 <LindaG> Kat, you get the determination of the year award!
16:40:16 <Betty> ouch, not good, Kat
16:41:05 <Kat> LindaG, thanks, but wish it wasnt so!
16:41:22 <Kat> Starting to snow again
16:41:40 <Kat> Roar
16:41:57 <Kat> And nothing!
16:42:18 <JarnoO💤> probably end of series then. 1508 last observed
16:47:13 <🥶> Kat broke Lion?
16:47:36 <Craig M> 1508 was ini too :(
16:47:59 <Kat> Maybe, there's people there waiting but not for long
16:48:37 <Craig M> can't tell if giantess is hot or if it's just good steam conditions
16:49:29 <Kat> Looks like good steam to me
16:50:13 <Kat> Storm over West, probably will be some snow at Madison.
16:50:31 <JarnoO💤> probably good steam conditions - 39°F at 99% humidity
16:50:38 <JarnoO💤> bad wind direction
16:51:02 <JarnoO💤> well, not even direction, just bad wind conditions overall makes me rule out Giantess at this time
16:51:06 <Kat> Lion minor
17:01:13 <Kat> Dome
17:01:52 <Betty> Riverside ie
17:18:52 <Betty> headed out, night all
17:19:36 <Laura> Have a good evening Betty
17:19:58 <Kat1> Bye Betty
17:26:28 <Kat1> Time to head north! Nasty out!
18:16:24 <JarnoO💤> atomic-ish Grand
18:16:45 <KorbenC> I see Grand researched the Manhattan Project :)
18:17:40 <JarnoO💤> oh no... Don't let Gandhi get his hands on that
18:18:12 <KorbenC> ;)
18:23:58 <JarnoO💤> 2nd there

19:41:49 <JarnoO💤> that was a nice boil on 'tess there. SE rim
19:44:25 <JarnoO💤> I'm off. Enjoy the steamy mess and a half :)
19:44:37 <KorbenC> JarnoO💤, cya
19:48:05 <Forestbewithyou> Evening all
19:48:42 <Laura> Hello Forest! Long time no see!
19:49:27 <Forestbewithyou> Hello Laura
19:49:30 <Laura> How are you?
19:50:22 <Forestbewithyou> I am going well how about you?
19:51:03 <Laura> Hey, three weeks from tonight I'll be in West Yellowstone! So life is looking up
19:51:22 <Forestbewithyou> Nice
19:52:07 <Laura> Hunted down all my cold weather clothing from our Alaska trip a couple years ago and last load is in the washer
19:52:28 <Laura> Just been enjoying the webcam this afternoon between loads
19:53:09 <Forestbewithyou> Yea
19:59:06 <KorbenC> Hi Forest
19:59:53 <KorbenC> I was looking for you earlier Forest :) I caught that big storm in easter el paso country, with the double Tor warn.
20:00:04 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Korben
20:00:08 <Forestbewithyou> Oh nice
20:00:17 <Forestbewithyou> I saw a nice single cell during sunset
20:00:25 <Forestbewithyou> actually it was two and I watched one die
20:00:30 <KorbenC> Apparently my storm made it all the way to WY! :D
20:00:37 <Forestbewithyou> wow!
20:00:49 <KorbenC> Lol, I read "I watched one die" before I read the rest of the sentance.
20:01:01 <Forestbewithyou> :D
20:01:28 <Laura> wow that's a long time for a thunderstorm to hold together, isn't it?
20:01:29 <Forestbewithyou> I will make it better. It dissipated
20:01:38 <KorbenC> :P
20:02:14 <KorbenC> Per radar the storm is now a big squall line sprawling over Nebraska. Crazy how a supercell has so much energy it can stay strong over that long a distance.
20:02:31 <Forestbewithyou> Laura, It depends on the type of storm. Some don't last long others can go for a really long time
20:03:30 <KorbenC> Laura, it depends on alot of factors. The type of storm of course, supercells (really big) tend to last longer than isolated tsms (smaller). For a supercell a few hours is not uncommon, for an isolated tsm somewhere between 15mins and an hour.
20:03:32 <Kevin 🥔🥔> Maybe it thinks I went to Nebraska
20:03:36 <Laura> Fortunately not something I have a lot of experience with as a native Californian. Earthquakes, now....
20:03:55 <Forestbewithyou> Did you see a tornado Korben?
20:04:02 <KorbenC> Yes
20:04:10 <Forestbewithyou> Nice
20:04:23 <KorbenC> Had a big funnel, but apparently was very weak.
20:04:41 <Forestbewithyou> Ah
20:04:46 <KorbenC> I guess the type of storm comes from CAPE (Convection) Laura. So as I ahve always said all is CAPE and CAPE is all.
20:05:01 <Forestbewithyou> Like EF0 or EF1
20:05:11 <KorbenC> EF0
20:05:24 <Forestbewithyou> Yea
20:05:32 <KorbenC> It produced an EF1 or EF2 up north a ways, but that was a few hours later.
20:05:40 <Forestbewithyou> Yea
20:05:48 <KorbenC> Forest will probably vouch for that statement. If anyoen can come up with a question that cannot be explained with CAPE, I will be suprised. :P
20:05:57 <KorbenC> comes up with a weather question*
20:06:24 <Forestbewithyou> I am trying :D
20:06:44 <KorbenC> Good luck, I have thought long and hard. Everything comes back to it, always.
20:07:24 <KorbenC> Why does it snow when Kevin is around? CAPE in the form of instability. :P
20:07:38 <Forestbewithyou> Oh Boy
20:08:49 <Forestbewithyou> Why do all the storms go around forest. I guess I am the living embodiment of Edna Mode from the incredibles... "NO CAPE" :p
20:09:06 <KorbenC> LMFAO.
20:09:50 <Forestbewithyou> Its like a giant storm just formed over my house... "Excuse me?!?"
20:09:53 <KorbenC> THat means I can probably forget my hail card in YNP, since Forest is there I won't have to worry about thunderstorms, it is guranteed to be no CAPE and capped :)
20:10:09 <Forestbewithyou> Precisely
20:10:24 <Forestbewithyou> And if there is one than it must be my house
20:10:44 <KorbenC> I mean, storms with meso strength of 5,000+ die and split in two just to avoid you Forest.
20:10:52 <Forestbewithyou> A rain cell did that today
20:11:03 <Forestbewithyou> It split right down the middle around my house
20:11:10 <KorbenC> lol. I wonder what would happen if we went storm chasing together.
20:11:46 <Forestbewithyou> I mean depends on where
20:11:59 <KorbenC> True.
20:12:33 <KorbenC> We have to "confuse the enemy," where the enemy is CAPE.
20:13:09 <Forestbewithyou> I need to use reverse psychology :p
20:14:26 <KorbenC> But do the storms know you are using reverse psychology?
20:14:39 <KorbenC> Nevermind, I am not starting that paradox. :)
20:14:50 <Forestbewithyou> Probably... They are just scared I bet
20:15:01 <Forestbewithyou> They are like "Oh Crap its forest... RUNNNNNN"
20:15:19 <KorbenC> I did use my power to send some storms your way yesterday. And it seems to have worked, look at your day 3 outlook.
20:15:25 <Forestbewithyou> Umm
20:15:29 <Forestbewithyou> But I won't be here
20:15:34 <KorbenC> "Run [away from] Forest, run!!"
20:15:54 <Forestbewithyou> I saw that this morning and I was like well great
20:16:01 <KorbenC> They know.
20:17:01 <Forestbewithyou> yep
20:17:08 <KorbenC> Welp, at least I tried to send storms you way. (Sees tornado warning just north of Forest's house in 3 days.)
20:17:21 <Forestbewithyou> I would die inside
20:17:57 <KorbenC> You know it is going to happen.
20:18:13 <Forestbewithyou> You know I could probably become the most liked meteorologist to the general public
20:18:25 <KorbenC> I see an ENH risk over your area, with Sig Severe hail and tornadoes.
20:18:29 <Forestbewithyou> You don't want rain well guess what Forest is here
20:18:41 <KorbenC> Forestbewithyou, you could, go anywhere where storms are predicted and they don't want them.
20:19:06 <KorbenC> and apparently if Wisconsin wan'ts storms you just have to leave.
20:19:09 <Forestbewithyou> Time to go corrupt tornado ally :p
20:19:17 <Forestbewithyou> Thats going to be fun
20:19:19 <KorbenC> :P
20:19:58 <Kevin 🥔🥔> Tornadoes are not allowed where I live.
20:20:39 <KorbenC> If you go into an MDT risk, SPC will suddenly make a "hole" in the middle of the MDT risk because they know.
20:20:42 <Forestbewithyou> Last year there was a tornado watch today here
20:20:50 <Forestbewithyou> Yep
20:21:06 <KorbenC> Kevin, your state has had some Tornadoes.
20:21:17 <KorbenC> I have been in Tor Watch last 3 days.
20:21:29 <Forestbewithyou> Yea
20:21:48 <KorbenC> 4 Severe Storms, 2 Tors, 1 Wind and 2 Hail for me this season. All of which this past month.
20:22:14 <Forestbewithyou> And my corruption has spread throughout southern Wisconsin I think
20:23:09 <KorbenC> Forestbewithyou, speaking of hail, I had a question for you: Does your state do the hail card still, I know a few of the states got rid of it.
20:25:49 <Forestbewithyou> I don't think so
20:25:56 <Forestbewithyou> We don't do spotter id anymore either
20:26:08 <KorbenC> *Vexation*
20:26:51 <Forestbewithyou> Do some offices still issue them? or is that now a thing of the past?
20:27:09 <KorbenC> It angers me because a few days ago NOAA Pub got a fake call from someone claiming a tornado was on the ground from a weak storm, and there was no way to hold them accountable.
20:27:17 <KorbenC> I think it is a think of the past
20:27:25 <Forestbewithyou> Oh my
20:59:38 <KorbenC> G'night all
21:08:16 <Kevin 🌪> Good Knight
