05:41:51 <Morning Bee> Nice viewing
05:41:58 <Joe> You want to play you've got to stay :)
05:43:32 <Morning Bee> Definitely a nice one this morning
05:44:17 <Morning Bee> Glad I happened upon it
05:44:43 <Joe> I sent a text :)
05:45:02 <Morning Bee> Not received here
05:45:39 <Morning Bee> But thanks
05:46:26 <Joe> text system is not good I did not get my own text until much later yesterday
05:46:37 <Morning Bee> I wonder why sometimes they do not come through, or come much later
05:47:33 <Morning Bee> That was nice ! Hope the boardwalks are not too icy this morning
05:47:40 <Joe> There is a get video for everyone :)
05:47:54 <Morning Bee> Good!
05:48:42 <Joe> Indy starts 0525 the video starts 0517
05:50:20 <Joe> No Idea where to put the camera it has been on the hill much of the night, as seen on my recordings
05:51:22 <Joe> Daisy is due, we will look there
05:53:39 <Joe> Riverside soon also
06:25:14 <Joe> Riverside
06:34:53 <KorbenC> Morning all, or really morning Joe.
06:35:19 <KorbenC> Sucks I missed BH :( and that it had a near 24hr interval.
06:36:41 <Joe> fhere is a getvideo of BHI and BEE
06:36:57 <KorbenC> Thanks
06:48:37 <KorbenC> Hi lljm
06:48:49 <lori lurking Je> Does anyone know if the second and third floor of the Inn are guest use for the balcony and second floor deck? Last I knew only Inn guests with lodging on those floors were allowed, but unknown if they have furniture there and are allowed to use the outside deck for OF watching.
06:49:48 <KorbenC> Joe, can you delete your 0623 Daisy? JimS caught it 0642 and I don't think it had a 20m interval
06:50:15 <lori lurking Je> oops, my good morning didn't show, didn't mean to be rude! Good morning all!
06:50:59 <Joe> :thumbsup:
06:51:36 <KorbenC> hey Kat
06:51:52 <Kat> Good Morning Korben and all!
06:51:58 <Joe> Must have been a big comet
06:52:13 <KorbenC> :)
06:52:52 <KorbenC> and hi Dave
06:53:15 <Kat> Morning Dave and Lori, and Joe
06:53:28 <Dave from B™> Morning everyone
06:56:38 <Kat> Chilly AM in the basin
06:58:34 <Dave from B™> The heat comes to the area next week. 2 days over 100F in Billings
06:58:49 <Dave from B™> This is too early for that kind of heat
06:59:46 <Joe> Enjoy the heat, winter will be early :)
07:00:21 <Dave from B™> Joe, you been reading the farmers almanac already?:)
07:00:49 <Joe> :thumbsup:
07:02:35 <Kat> :)
07:03:32 <Dave from B™> Most Billings high temp records in June are from 1988. 2 may fall next week. 1988 was not fun around here.
07:04:41 <Kat> Dave from B™, scary
07:05:29 <Joe> Dave from B™, Ah! 1988, the yellowstone fires
07:07:23 <KorbenC> "Tuesday: Sunny and hot, with a high near 104." Ouch Dave
07:07:28 <Dave from B™> I think YNP had a little moisture in Apr/May this year than in 1988
07:07:40 <Kat> I was there 1989 -
07:07:58 <linda> morning
07:08:05 <Kat> Hi Linda
07:08:15 <linda> Kat, hi there
07:08:16 <Joe> I was tent camping at Grant village that year, Rangers woke up up and told us to pack up and get out!
07:08:38 <Kat> Wow
07:10:20 <Joe> Had to go out through West, South was closed, long trip around to go south to Rock Springs
07:11:29 <Kat> I'm sure it was...could you see the fire?
07:17:39 <Dave from B™> Joe,m that could have been my college roommate telling you to get out
07:18:01 <Dave from B™> I helped get his wife out of there on that same day
07:18:13 <Joe> Yes, earlier that day I was in my canoe fishing Shoshone lake fires were up to the edge.
07:18:57 <Dave from B™> Kat, it was eery driving on park roads and seeing burning trees less than 100 yards away
07:19:24 <Kat> I can't imagine
07:21:31 <Kat> I need to reread the accounts of the fire, wildlife displaced and/or killed was sad
07:22:43 <ynpvisitor10> The views were a LOT better for about 15 years though
07:23:18 <Kat> ynpvisitor10, true - you could really see the terrain
07:23:33 <Kat> Cam needs a washer
07:24:17 <Dave from B™> Yep...there were waterfalls, etc that you could see after the fires. The wildflowers the next year were awesome.
07:24:58 <ynpvisitor10> Now it's like driving thru a green tunnel
07:25:14 <Joe> I spent my early years in the park fishing/hiking, geyser watching was secondary except for Norris, I saw lots of Echinus :)
07:25:21 <Dave from B™> I will NEVER get the sound of what seemed like a freight train out of my head. It was a fire over 2 miles away across Yellowstone Lake.
07:27:14 <Kat> In 1989 I thought it was beautiful but barren in some areas, flowers were awesome
07:28:24 <Dave from B™> The hillside next to the Petrified tree turnoff was amazing
07:30:19 <Kat> :thumbsup:
07:31:28 <Joe> It has been fun watching the changes since then, I remember the 'experts' saying the park would never recover,The park had an exhibit between Canyon and Norris showing how the area would not recover, they took it out as the area grew back. :)
07:32:13 <Kat> :lol:
07:32:53 <Dave from B™> It was a learning experience for many. Great teaching tool for fire.
07:34:35 <Kat> I'm sure much was learned...
07:34:57 <Dave from B™> The smell. Billings smelt like a campfire for over a month
07:38:07 <Dave from B™> I just got the bhi text...that's odd
07:39:10 <Joe> We need a better text system, many did not get the text.
07:39:58 <Dave from B™> Isn't Eric working on one?
07:41:21 <Joe> Dave from B™, I do not know.
07:42:50 <Joe> When I send a text for BHI, if I do not get it myself, I usually send another
07:43:18 <Joe> I got this mornings text
07:43:52 <Kat> I didn't get it
07:46:38 <Joe> I would like to figure out how to send a text to a large group from my phone.
07:48:31 <Joe> This e-mail to text with many carriers involved is not consistent.
07:48:53 <KorbenC> Joe, you should create a new BH text group or something
07:49:12 <KorbenC> I am using a different phone than normal for YNP and I cant reach Ryan to sign it up for txt alerts.
07:50:48 <Joe> Contact Katie she will set you up, I should be able to also but Ryans instructions don't work for me.
07:51:10 <KorbenC> :thumbsup: Thanks, I will
07:54:26 <Kat> Joe, I need to contact Katie as well. Can't send texts by Ryans instructions either
07:55:04 <KorbenC> Kat, I will text her.
07:57:29 <Joe> Give Katie your phone number and carrier, she can set you up.
07:58:01 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
07:59:02 <Kat> Thanks Korben!
07:59:18 <Kat> Missed Lion
08:00:01 <KorbenC> Hi Kevin
08:00:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Morning
08:01:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I got the text at 0741 YDT.
08:01:44 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin...yes, I second that MDT should be YDT
08:01:58 <Joe> Sending texts is a different matter, It interfered with my G-mail, so I had to go incognito and log into the geyser alerts as in Ryan's instructions Then set that as a bookmark/favorite, I can now send texts
08:02:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was at the park in 1988. We were leaving just as the fires went nuts.
08:03:30 <Joe> Kevin L™ 🌵, I sent it at 0531 'g-mail time :)
08:04:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I had bought a scanner to keep track. We were near Craig Pass when the fire jumped the road. We made a U turn and headed out West.
08:06:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The area between Madison and West was horrible with fire on all sides. I suspect if they had known how bad the fires were there that road would have been closed.
08:07:53 <Joe> Kat once you set up sending that way it will log you into the account, click compose, (there is some delay) then type g into the to column the correct address will pop up then skip subject type your message and hit send.
08:08:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I don't see a link in the text for BH. I wonder if they don't show up.
08:10:00 <Joe> IDK, I get 4 pages of garbage when I get a text from the system.
08:13:06 <Joe> Adios, there is a hot pool waiting for me :)
08:13:22 <KorbenC> Bye Joe
08:14:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bye Joe
08:15:04 <Dave from B™> Take the slide for me:)
08:15:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> One more series and we could be playing for the Cup Dave.
08:16:58 <Dave from B™> I hope so. I think you have the easier semifinal matchup.
08:17:42 <KorbenC> Kevin, well your last series was against a Colorado Sports team, a guaranteed win for you before you even started.
08:17:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Depends on which Knights team shows up.
08:18:18 <KorbenC> A sports team worst than mine? I don't believe it, lol.
08:19:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The Avalanche always has played us hard. The OT win we had was only the 3rd time the Knights won in Colorado in the team history.
08:21:02 <KorbenC> I still don't beleive any team can be worst than CO sports teams.
08:21:17 <KorbenC> We have mountains and not alot of O2, but good sports team, nope.
08:30:01 <Kat> OF
08:37:22 <Dave from B™> Why is Jimbo's TV logging on?
08:40:35 <Jimbo's Compute> Because he's watching the big screen
08:42:31 <Jimbo's Compute> Hey Korben, until the Capitals won the Stanley Cup in 2018, the combined big four sports teams in the DC area had gone the longest without a title.
08:43:08 <KorbenC> OK, maybe DCh as worse hockey
08:43:23 <KorbenC> and hi Jimbo Computer and Jimbo TV, what did you do with Jimbo?
08:43:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Of course they won that one against an expansion team...
08:43:54 <Jimbo's Compute> Living between Baltimore and Washington, we could take comfort in the Ravens winning a couple of Super Bowls, but the Orioles have usually been bad with occasional flashes of higher level mediocrity (i.e., made the playoffs as a wild card)
08:44:12 <Jimbo's Compute> AI taking over
08:44:25 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
08:44:50 <Jimbo's Compute> Actually, DC has great hockey in the regular season. Winning the Cup in 2018 helped alleviate some of the pain of postseason frustration
08:45:11 <KorbenC> Can't argue with the AI :)
08:45:28 <Jimbo's Compute> Over the past decade, Capitals had/have the highest regular season winning percentage
08:45:40 <Jimbo's Compute> Doesn't hurt to have Ovechkin
08:46:05 <Jimbo's Compute> But more shots from outside get blocked in the playoffs.
08:46:57 <Jimbo's Compute> And you face better goalies more often
08:47:47 <Jimbo's Compute> We now return to regular hydrothermal feature programming :p
08:47:51 <Dave from B™> Jimbo, I was surprised Caps lost in the first round this year
08:48:32 <Jimbo's Compute> Yeah, us too. They were aging and hurt. Lost two close OTs, team lost confidence and couldn't get it back
08:49:21 <Jimbo's Compute> We've got a pretty good prospect corps. Though there was no Calder Cup playoffs, Hershey Bears had the best record in AHL.
08:49:58 <Jimbo's Compute> And they are going to be forced to shed cap space. My bet is that Kuznetsov gets traded and they'll see if Seattle takes Oshie in the expansion draft.
08:50:14 <Jimbo's Compute> That's the scuttlebutt around here.
08:50:32 <Jimbo's Compute> Sorry, was going to talk hot steam
08:53:29 <Jimbo's Compute> WOOHOO Biden administration reinstating logging road ban in the Tongass
08:54:20 <KorbenC> In these days, IDK if that is sarcasm or not.
08:54:39 <Jimbo's Compute> Definitely not sarcasm, that's a great thing
08:55:00 <KorbenC> lol, now I am even mroe confused if that is sarcasm or not.
08:55:26 <Jimbo's Compute> Gotta try to keep the pristine regions as pristine as possible -- that's one of them
08:56:03 <Jimbo's Compute> I.e., I am very happy that the logging road ban is being reinstated.
08:56:47 <KorbenC> Makes sense, I haven't researched it so I am not going to comment. :)
08:57:00 <Jimbo's Compute> No problem, Korben. I get you
08:57:52 <KorbenC> :thumbsup: But mgith I say Jimbo's Computer, quite an AI advancement, able to have political opinions, impressive.
09:08:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I do enjoy paying $9 for a $2 2x4.
09:08:54 <Forestbewithyou> Morning all
09:09:00 <KorbenC> Hi Forest, T-9!
09:09:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
09:09:32 <Dave from B™> There is a cost to preserving areas worth saving
09:09:36 <Forestbewithyou> KorbenC yea!
09:09:44 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Kevin
09:12:51 <KorbenC> :lion:
09:13:06 <Kat> Lion ie
09:13:43 <Jimbo's Compute> Changing that road rule in the Tongass was never about the economics of logging.
09:18:44 <Ark> Does West gate ever slow down? About what time?
09:19:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Usually about noon.
09:19:36 <Ark> Wow, thanks
09:20:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Animal jams have been bad this year between West and Madison.
09:20:46 <Dave from B™> Go in before 830
09:21:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Even gets crowded at that time Dave.
09:21:52 <Dave from B™> Well, 800 then:)
09:21:57 <KorbenC> Yes Ark, the west gate is very crowded this time of year, you will need to get in before 800AM
09:22:15 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, did you break West gate and SB?
09:22:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BTW did anyone notice the "orange trees" this year? I saw a bunch outside the park and in the park. Hope we don't have a repeat of '88.
09:23:43 <Jimbo's Compute> Already seeing cicada damage around my region.
09:24:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I hate those things. Talk about noise. I used to be good at shooting them off trees with my BB gun.
09:25:38 <Ark> Kevin L™ 🌵, are those beetle-killed trees?
09:26:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is what I was wondering. There seemed to be a bunch of them.
09:27:00 <Dave from B™> Dead trees had nothing to do with 88 fires. moisture content in trees was at a record low level that no one had even come close to seeing before.
09:28:09 <Eric> Good Morning all
09:28:18 <KorbenC> Hi Eric, happy friday
09:28:20 <Forestbewithyou> Hi Eric
09:28:27 <Eric> Happy Firday :-D
09:28:33 <Eric> Hi Korben & Forest
09:28:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> About a third of the trees in the areas most affected were beetle killed. They are much dryer than the living trees.
09:28:41 <Kat> Morning Eric
09:28:44 <KorbenC> any weekend plans Eric?
09:28:45 <Eric> Hi Kat
09:29:03 <Eric> Well, my climb fell through due to lightning and storms :-(
09:29:22 <Eric> So still working on plan B :-P
09:29:32 <KorbenC> :(
09:29:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lightning on a mountain is NOT a good thing for hikers.
09:29:48 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, esspecialy when up above treeline
09:30:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yep. It goes for the highest point.
09:30:47 <KorbenC> Eric, weather is going to be good this weekend so, and
09:30:49 <Dave from B™> It just makes your hair stand straight up....what could possibly be wrong with that?
09:31:32 <Ark> 1 more question- which gate is the express lane from the cam perspective?
09:31:35 <KorbenC> Dave from B™, absolutely nothing could go wrong with that :)
09:31:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I still remember that storm we had at Arty where you hair would raise just before it struck and the boom was the same instant as the flash.
09:31:54 <KorbenC> Yea, that would be very bad at 14K
09:34:47 <Dave from B™> Kevin, can you answer Ark's question? I just went thru there in April and I don't remember.
09:36:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There are a couple. Go to the right as you approach the gate from west.
09:36:30 <Ark> Dave from B™, maybe you didn't need it in April
09:36:43 <Kat> Thats what I remember too Kevin L™ 🌵,
09:36:50 <Kat> Crowd at Grand
09:37:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I drove right through on May 21 at 1000. No cars in line.
09:38:31 <Ark> Earlier I saw some small buses that looked like tour guides and they were in the far right lane from cam perspective. One would assume they have annual passes
09:40:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They may have a system for regular tour vans.
09:40:44 <KorbenC> :grand:
09:46:44 <linda> Kat, Rafa vs. Djokovic semifinals next on tennis channel
09:49:23 <Kat> Thx Linda! Rafa is the man!

10:36:48 <LindaG> :p>(
10:37:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just after 1200
10:38:03 <LindaG> :)
10:38:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have you seen the rain at Paradise Linda?
10:38:47 <Dave from B™> quick poll. How many webcams is everyone watching? My answer is 1
10:38:52 <LindaG> No
10:39:01 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 5
10:39:03 <LindaG> just one
10:42:26 <LindaG> 5? Wow
10:42:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Rain at Paradise is so thick it looks like fog. Steam & electric meet in about 7 to 10 minutes.
10:42:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 1 geyser, 1 volcano, 3 trains.
10:43:09 <LindaG> Lots happening here
10:44:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I like to keep the Strasburg/Paradise cam on for the train whistle.
10:45:06 <Dave from B™> I guess you are RETIRED:)
10:45:29 <LindaG> Boil
10:45:34 <Greg (working)> in the evenings, I will be watching 3 or 4
10:46:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am also doing laundry, washing dishes, cooking breakfast, and working on a plumbing fixture.
10:50:41 <Greg (working)> weeee
10:54:48 <Dave from B™> So, like most people, you are busier during retirement.
10:55:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> For the most part.
11:00:32 <Dave from B™> After 3 weeks, we finally got back our 2018 Ram Promaster with its warranty rebuilt transmission after 40K miles
11:01:29 <KorbenC> Time to go get my 2nd COVID shot and go camping. Have a great weekend all.
11:01:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wow. Such speedy service.
11:01:59 <Forestbewithyou> Good luck with the shot Korben
11:03:31 <Greg (working)> Bye Korben, enjoy the weekend
11:08:04 <Dave from B™> Parts issue
11:08:19 <Dave from B™> Rather, they got into it and found they needed more parts
11:09:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Amazing how they can take $23,000 worth of parts to make a $3500 transmission.
11:11:20 <LindaG> Daisy
11:15:06 <Dave from B™> The labor is the killer plus everything takes so long because it is stuffed in a tiny little space.
11:16:34 <Dave from B™> May park visitation up 11% over record May 2019
11:17:28 <JarnoO> hm, Plume corner is a bit crowded on HLS delay
11:22:12 <JarnoO> Grotto Fountain 1119 in-basin
11:41:09 <LindaGp> Hey jeff
11:41:15 <Jeff> Hey linda
11:42:37 <Jeff> It hasn't seemed too busy in basin but apparently the upper store did over 100k in sales for the 1st time
11:42:50 <JarnoO> nice!
11:44:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Two t shirts?
11:45:06 <JarnoO> $50k a shirt each? Sounds implausible but then again someone paid almost $100k for a chicken nugget in the shape of a character in a popular game...
11:46:10 <LindaGp> Jeff, excellent
11:46:21 <JarnoO> that having said, I'll be busy with writing the final document I have to make, so I'll likely won't be logging much, if at all
11:46:21 <Jeff> I think it was 3 shirts 2 cups of coffee and 2 scoops of ice cream lol
11:47:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And a loaf of bread!
11:56:47 <LindaGp> OF
12:10:18 <LindaGp> Lion
12:47:45 <johnu> castle
12:50:12 <LindaGp> :gt: must like you
12:51:03 <johnu> LOL!
12:51:13 <johnu> I like it for sure...
12:53:27 <linda> :)
12:54:29 <johnu> I would love to see it from the other side of the trees sometime
12:54:45 <linda> me too
12:54:59 <johnu> :thumbsup:
12:57:48 <johnu> how did you catch giantess linda?
13:00:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like they are setting up a steam old time freight at Strasburg Linda.
13:00:47 <linda> you mean last year?
13:01:02 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, nice, I'll have to tune in
13:01:19 <johnu> yes, were you just scanning or did someone report it?
13:02:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was sitting by Depression once when it went.
13:02:17 <linda> johnu, johnu, I was down basin and I saw a large shadow. I thought it was lion or old faithful so I panned over to look at lion and when I got there lion wasn't erupting. So I kept going and it was giantess.
13:02:52 <linda> I had been looking at Giantess maybe 10 minutes before and it wasn't doing anything
13:03:01 <johnu> cool. that was exciting!
13:03:35 <linda> johnu, It was very exciting, last thing we all expected
13:03:46 <Greg (working)> :thumbsup:
13:03:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have got it on the cam twice. Both times I had it on Giantess to Lion.
13:04:22 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, Yeah you got the second one two weeks later
13:04:28 <johnu> Wow, you were really lucky Kevin
13:05:07 <linda> If I hadn't moved cam I think they would have seen on static or someone would have entered
13:05:36 <johnu> do you think we will get :daisy: before I have to go to OF?
13:05:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If you are on the cam long enough you get good things.
13:06:04 <johnu> :thumbsup: how long kevin?
13:06:28 <linda> I think OF will win
13:06:39 <johnu> is that grotto and rocket?
13:06:51 <johnu> boo hiss linda!
13:07:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Next month will be my 10th year.
13:07:15 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, wow
13:07:40 <johnu> 2002?
13:07:54 <johnu> or 2012
13:07:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 2011
13:08:56 <johnu> at least the cam is focusing better
13:10:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was also running it when it got hit by lightning.
13:10:46 <linda> looks good right now
13:11:34 <johnu> I dont know if I would spread that around kevin! LOL!
13:11:36 <Dave from B™> I was closer:)
13:12:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was shocking...
13:12:41 <Dave from B™> That was some of the loudest thunder I have ever heard
13:12:46 <johnu> ;)
13:12:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wouldn't be surprised if they opened the new north entrance next week.
13:15:50 <johnu> daisy is spitting...
13:17:56 <linda> daisy
13:18:01 <linda> she won
13:18:07 <Greg (working)> lol
13:18:11 <johnu> :daisy:
13:26:17 <johnu> OF IE
14:11:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like an ant colony
14:30:33 <linda> is that plume?
14:31:09 <johnu> I am not sure linda
14:31:27 <linda> pull back a smidge
14:31:51 <johnu> :thumbsup:
14:32:37 <linda> I'm not sure where the cam is pointed
14:32:41 <johnu> it looked a lot better on the cam than on here...
14:32:58 <linda> Is this the corner by improbable?
14:33:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like Pump
14:33:19 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, hahaha lol
14:33:24 <johnu> here is another one coming...
14:34:09 <linda> I thought the cam was pointing somewhere else
14:35:12 <Dave from B™> If this was art it would be beautiful:P
14:36:29 <Dave from B™> That is Eric Geyser
15:05:22 <johnu> OF IE
15:12:17 <johnu> do you think we missed :daisy: ?
15:12:44 <linda> looks steamy
15:13:01 <johnu> :thumbsup:
15:13:06 <linda> Nope could be 10 minutes
15:13:20 <johnu> :thumbsup:
15:13:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Graham is there. He would post it
15:14:49 <johnu> Oh okay. I wondered where all those basin geyser activity posts were coming from. thanks kevin!
15:21:02 <linda> daisy, their she is
15:21:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There it is
15:21:23 <johnu> :thumbsup:
15:26:37 <johnu> what is to the left of grotto?
15:29:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Had some quail with about 10 juveniles Linda.
15:45:22 <johnu> is that arty back in the trees?
15:46:11 <linda> no i don't think so
15:46:50 <johnu> keeps puffing once in a while...
15:47:14 <linda> `a little wisp, It would be big
15:48:00 <linda> I think there are a couple geysers back there
15:48:27 <johnu> :thumbsup: thanks
15:48:57 <JarnoO> there are indeed a few geysers back there, but that steam is Artemisia passive. Comparable with Oblong, but bigger
15:49:28 <johnu> :thumbsup:
15:49:37 <JarnoO> all other features are barely inferrable by plume, even on cold days
15:49:53 <JarnoO> barely, if at all, actually
16:00:33 <Greg 🤠> :grand:
16:00:34 <JarnoO> Grand HLS delay
16:01:16 <JarnoO> D2
16:02:06 <johnu> You ready to have a :grand: time Greg?
16:02:41 <Greg 🤠> Ready when you are John, you have had agreat shift.
16:03:05 <Greg 🤠> Grand time - good one
16:03:30 <johnu> Yeah Linda saved some for me! ;)
16:03:53 <johnu> I am going to log off and you got her buddy!
16:03:55 <Greg 🤠> But, did you save me any ? haha, aurum maybe?
16:04:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Even have a slim shot at BH!
16:04:27 <JarnoO> Greg, don't get your hopes up for Aurum
16:04:48 <johnu> :bee:
16:04:56 <Greg 🤠> I knw, but helps the next 6 six hours pass
16:05:06 <JarnoO> :)
16:08:11 <JarnoO> evening Betty
16:08:21 <Betty> afternoon all, evening JarnoO
16:08:28 <Greg 🤠> Hi Betty
16:09:31 <Betty> hi Greg 🤠
16:09:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi Betty
16:11:34 <linda> Betty, hi
16:11:38 <linda> JarnoO, hi
16:11:50 <JarnoO> hi Linda
16:11:59 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵, linda
16:13:32 <JarnoO> G1C 10m06s
16:17:00 <Betty> no NPS predictions?
16:18:24 <JarnoO> not staffed I think then
16:21:12 <JarnoO> Betty, we're ready for the European Cup. Also spotted the first ads today making fun of Germans (one featuring a few German supporters finding the color orange too bright, thus asking how much for a welder's mask and another one with two walking into a completely orange bar and getting two beers with the Dutch flag stickered on the bottle :P)
16:21:42 <Betty> :-D
16:21:57 <JarnoO> I think it's still that 1988 victory :)
16:39:36 <Greg 🤠> OF
16:58:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 419 geyser
17:00:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 419 cam
17:04:17 <JarnoO> nope
17:11:02 <JarnoO> Iceland has its own version of conewalking...
17:17:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> With this flood I wouldn't get near the thing!
17:19:15 <JarnoO> definitely not. I'd rather look from a safe spot
17:20:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We got a "new" caboose at the museum today!
17:20:44 <JarnoO> congrats!
17:21:00 <Greg 🤠> woot woot
17:21:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It came by truck 3 days early. Not something that you can just tell them to slip it under the doormat!
17:31:50 <JarnoO> I wonder if they'd put a doormat on top of it instead then. Probably wouldn't do anything against thieves, but at least it's delivered under the doormat :)
17:33:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My guess is nobody will steal it.
17:33:46 <JarnoO> Riverside HLS delay
17:35:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
17:35:16 <JarnoO> Arty ie it looks like
17:35:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
17:35:47 <JarnoO> 'oversized' is an understatement, that's for sure
17:38:02 <JarnoO> caboose not transported upright?
17:54:30 <JarnoO> could be Grotto Fountain ther
17:54:31 <JarnoO> e
18:12:22 <Greg 🤠> OF
18:28:26 <JarnoO> that's a familiar sight:
18:36:43 <Greg 🤠> We missed it ;o(
18:37:28 <Greg 🤠> Jarno, good capture
18:37:55 <JarnoO> thanks
18:41:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think it is photoshopped.
18:42:57 <Greg 🤠> I would agree
18:43:10 <linda> >(
18:44:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We are going to put the caboose on the rails Monday morning.
18:45:01 <Greg 🤠> Will it be on cam?
18:46:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No, but they may put a video on YouTube. My training pants came today so I will look official.
18:46:45 <Greg 🤠> Are sure you want to say this " training pants" ?
18:47:06 <Greg 🤠> :p
18:47:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :) overalls, but at my age...
18:47:33 <Greg 🤠> haha
18:48:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I suppose I should say "It depends".
18:48:50 <linda> lol
18:48:53 <Greg 🤠> ouch, I thought Linda would use that line
18:49:24 <linda> :)
18:49:33 <Jeff> Busy first day today
18:50:22 <linda> Jeff, Is that good?
18:50:49 <Jeff> Yeah. We were just shy of 15k for the day for 5 hours open
18:51:05 <linda> not too shabby
18:51:28 <linda> even better if you got a cut
18:52:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 2 packs of lunch meat and a loaf of bread?
18:52:29 <Jeff> It would be nice if commission based. I didn't see my exact numbers but I was over 6k in sales alone today
18:52:43 <Jeff> Couple shirts a blanket and a coffee cup
18:53:15 <linda> As long as I've been doing /gt geyser, I always thought the last interval in list was the most current, realized today it's the first one
18:53:47 <Greg 🤠> What the first one ?
18:56:38 <linda> Greg 🤠, ever do that /gt geysername # so /gt daisy 3 would tell you the last three intervals along with the time since last eruption
18:57:15 <Greg 🤠> ahhh
18:58:01 <linda> So I thought the time on the last interval was the most recent, but it's just the opposite
18:58:14 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
18:59:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Did you see my quail comment earlier Linda?
18:59:17 <linda> unless of course Eric is messing with my head and he reversed recently
18:59:23 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, no
18:59:55 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, were there lots?
18:59:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Got some juveniles today. Stopped 4 cars while they crossed the road.
19:00:08 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, oh how cute
19:00:50 <linda> we have terrapin turtles all over, had to stop my car and escort a few across the road

19:13:45 <Greg 🤠> No, not "yet" 90 forecast was higher chance of precp and lower high temps

20:53:19 <linda> you too
20:53:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Good knight
21:09:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was hoping for a BH before dark.
21:10:29 <Greg 🤠> ya me too, );:
21:10:42 <Greg 🤠> Maybe after of
21:21:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am just sitting here munching, watching cams, and listening to Bob Wills tunes anyway.
21:22:28 <Greg 🤠> I watching Suns, Dbacks and going back/forth on a few other webcams
21:23:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We have a few knights off before the next game.
21:23:31 <Greg 🤠> we = clippers?
21:23:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have you ever watched the Rattlers?
21:24:25 <Greg 🤠> Back in the day we watched all the games, never went thou
21:25:46 <Greg 🤠> of
21:26:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The arena league went belly up (my wife's Uncles owned the Las Vegas Sting) but the Rattlers are playing in the Indoor Football League now. If you get a chance, go to a game. They are really fun.
21:27:12 <Greg 🤠> yes they are, bummer on the Sting.
21:28:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The owner of the Knights has an expansion team for next year.
21:28:18 <Greg 🤠> :thumbsup:
21:29:20 <Greg 🤠> still iffy going out/about.
21:29:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I like that guy and will support him. He never ask for any tax money at all for the T-Mobile Arena.
21:32:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Strange sky color
