09:45:23 <Kat> Doing great - and you?
09:45:37 <Jeff> not too bad just relaxing at home
09:45:50 <Kat> Time to relax for sure
09:46:04 <Jeff> and relax before next summer roles around
09:46:31 <Kat> Hahaha - hope you're heading back to the park
09:47:58 <Jeff> most definitely.... not sure what position ill be doing yet but itll either be cashier, floor supervisor, or server
09:48:37 <Kat> Great - at least you'll be back! What do you want to do
09:49:11 <Jeff> i wanna be server but not sure if we are gonna have them yet or not
09:49:46 <Kat> Aaahhh - makes sense
09:50:05 <Kat> Time will tell
09:50:37 <Jeff> from what our operations manager told us we will but gotta wait and see
09:52:06 <Kat> You never know - but hopefully things will be better and staffing in park will improve
09:52:52 <Jeff> we definitely need the staffing cause **** doing normal business numbers with 1/3 staff
09:53:25 <Kat> That had to be tough.
09:53:42 <Jeff> it was but we got through
09:53:54 <Kat> Did you have to give up days off?
09:54:04 <Jeff> actually no
09:54:49 <Kat> That's good, time to spend outdoors!
09:55:15 <Jeff> i was just so tired on my days off i didnt even wanna watch geysers
09:57:54 <Kat> That's a shame! Better next year!

10:01:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Perry Mason music
10:02:03 <Kat> Hi Kevin - no real down basin view, it's been quiet and cold!
10:02:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It looks like it.
10:04:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is a bad view
10:19:06 <Katie> Facebook memories - 7 years ago the late great Bonnie was camop and took a screen shot of me waving at her from the boardwalk
10:20:03 <Kat> Katie, nice memory!
10:20:13 <Katie> And OF eruption blew straight at boardwalk & camera and slimed the camera
10:20:31 <Kat> :lol:
10:22:01 <Kat> The cars are lined up at west
10:24:10 <DanS working> Vroom. Did NPS announce opening time?
10:24:50 <Kat> Not that I know
10:30:36 <Kat> Just heard only 1 plow operational in Northern part of park. Should be opening NE gate this afternoon. not sure about West
10:49:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> the beauty of living in the mountains
10:49:56 <Kat> :thumbsup:
10:54:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Mountains are fine as long as they are in the desert.
11:02:45 <DanS working> Now that we've had fair amount of precip on the hill, any ideas on when Aurum reappears?
11:04:54 <Betty> morning all
11:05:16 <Katie> DanS working, when Kevin is feeding the chickens
11:05:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi

12:14:16 <Kat> :lol:
12:21:27 <DanS working> Looks like West entrance is open now
12:23:15 <DanS working> Reminds of summer back up at west entrance
12:37:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> lots of cars at W gate, people eager to make the most of their shortened day
12:39:42 <DanS working> Wonder how far back up stretched into West? Retro summer flashback...
12:44:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> dunno, you must think a lot of people gave up given the crappy weather and locals probably punted today
12:45:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> i wonder if Ben left after F&M?
12:49:24 <DanS working> We'll have to see who
12:49:56 <DanS working> 'still posting (daang keyboard)
13:00:23 <5> Ben is still there
13:16:18 <Korben> Good afternoon all
13:19:26 <Korben> Ben is still in YNP Graham, he is on the hill right now
13:20:51 <Korben> G has been pretty dead lately :( So I guess he is wating for my hive of bee :D
13:22:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks Korben. i bet he is lonely now, not many gazers there
13:22:50 <Korben> Yea, I am trying to keep him entertained over text
13:23:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> is he the lone indi watcher?
13:23:14 <Korben> Thats him standing behind BH now, if my texts went through he would wabe
13:23:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> ~~~
13:23:49 <visitor 007> Hi Ben!
13:24:27 <Korben> Graham, I almost would feel bad for him being lonely, but thee are hundreds of geysers to keep him entertained :D
13:25:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think Ben is used to being alone too from all his SB time
13:25:48 <Korben> he is going ove to look at the bubbles fo me, thanks Ben!
13:25:54 <Korben> GO STEAMBOAT, lol
13:28:12 <Katie> I was just about to say someone needs to make a snowperson. Maybe are now? Static - and is that a yote or an offleash dog?
13:29:01 <Katie> I think it was a coyote - and moved out of frame to right.
13:29:28 <Korben> Katie, Ben says that if Giantess erupts he will make a snowperson and put it next to BH, lol
13:29:45 <Katie> ha ha ha ha ha
13:30:04 <Katie> Family is making one in front of static, left of widewalk
13:30:15 <Katie> Little one - but a snow person
13:33:12 <Korben> haha
13:33:21 <Korben> Ben says Giantess has been dead though
13:47:51 <C'mon Giantess!> It's a small snow person family.
13:51:08 <Korben> Hi ktb :)
13:58:45 <Korben> Ben looks cold
14:08:18 <DanS working> Bee looks warm
14:14:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> its 30 degrees, thats not cold
14:14:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> he must be faking it
14:15:02 <Korben> GO STEAMBOAT, he isn't being a good Coloradan. A real Coloadan would be out there in shorts and a tee
14:16:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We put jackets on at 80°
14:35:02 <Korben> Bryce, btw, that Dep earlier was a Jalapeño eruption :)

16:16:53 <SantaFe108> castle finally decided to be productive
16:17:12 <KorbenC> I see
16:17:21 <KorbenC> BH should be soon and maybe we will get a Dep later this evening
16:18:22 <SantaFe108> sounds like a good itinerary
16:27:27 <Greg 🤠 on ca> What is the correct time for Grand, 1528 or 210?
16:27:38 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Lion and or a bee still today?
16:27:58 <KorbenC> Grand should be line now, Lion and Daist are due anytime as well
16:28:18 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Thanks buddy
16:28:56 <KorbenC> Although, take GT's prediction with a big grain of salt. The user who entered it only has 13 entries so might have made a mistake. :)
16:29:00 <Kevin Depot> All at once day
16:29:48 <KorbenC> Grand is not for certain (but I think soon) but BH and Lion are for certain soon
16:48:05 <SantaFe108> interesting
17:14:08 <Greg 🤠 on ca> of
17:44:28 <linda> evening
17:44:37 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Hi Linda
17:44:58 <linda> Greg 🤠 on cam, hi
17:45:17 <Greg 🤠 on ca> How did everything go today?
17:45:37 <linda> Greg 🤠 on cam, ok, got some stuff accomplished, how about u?
17:46:21 <KorbenC> So Lion was at 1702, I missed that :(
17:46:36 <Greg 🤠 on ca> work is busy krazy, otherwise good day.
17:46:43 <linda> KorbenC, hi

17:47:16 <Greg 🤠 on ca> We missed it as well, lion that is grrrr
17:47:21 <KorbenC> Can I reqest a quick zoom on Dep please? It just passed 6hrs and it likes to erupt around that time :)
17:48:12 <KorbenC> Its eruptions seem to average somewhere around 2h 30min (short interval) 4hr 15min (medium) 6h 5m (medium) or 8hr 45ming (long) which is interesting
17:48:44 <KorbenC> 1c, IDK if hold 1c, post crash or rising
17:48:49 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Well, n ow that there is snow (YEA) maybe aurum will come for a visit.
17:48:54 <KorbenC> Thanks Greg :)
17:49:12 <KorbenC> Greg, we need the snow to melt for that I think. That way the water can get percolated
17:51:52 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :thumbsup:
18:19:54 <KorbenC> 1b almost 1a, interesting. Should try again in a few min :)
18:20:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I wonder if BH went while the cam was inspecting the logs on the Inn.
18:21:11 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, that is very possbile
18:21:12 <KorbenC> GO DEP GO
18:21:22 <KorbenC> Dep is tryin VERRY Hard right now, 1a+++
18:21:56 <linda> did we lose power again?
18:21:59 <KorbenC> Dropping a little bit, it could hold or bounch back tho. Maintaining 1a, where is SF when you need him!
18:23:15 <KorbenC> I have a feeling Dep is either gonna erupt on this cycle or in the next hr
18:23:57 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Didn't lose power, but the cam decided to take a stroll by itself haha
18:24:47 <KorbenC> Dep looks like it is coming back up, SF needs to be on here.
18:24:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think it lost power before midnight and stayed there.
18:25:40 <Greg 🤠 on ca> OF window
18:25:53 <KorbenC> GONE
18:26:12 <KorbenC> Well that was almost Dep, I am surprised it didnt erupt on that
