08:27:59 <LindaG> Seriously
08:39:54 <LindaG> Dep wither crashes or erupted
08:40:13 <LindaG> *crashed
08:44:47 <LindaG> Bee splashes
08:48:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> BH between 0900 and 1300 today
08:49:03 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, and where are you off. to?
08:50:27 <LindaG> OF
08:51:03 <TomK> Good mornig all. (well, it's 0750 here)
08:51:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Training
08:52:05 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, NICE
08:54:41 <LindaG> Daisy ie
08:54:57 <LindaG> at least it was entered in basin
08:57:50 <LindaG> Waters back in dep
08:59:49 <TomK> I'm ready to take the cam
09:00:17 <LindaG> TomK, all yours
09:00:26 <LindaG> controls released
09:00:38 <TomK> Thanks.
09:00:50 <LindaG> I just got Aof a little while ago
09:00:57 <LindaG> *OF
09:01:08 <TomK> Are we expecting Depression?
09:01:12 <LindaG> Daisy justberuoted
09:01:36 <LindaG> Everything else is up for grabs
09:04:37 <TomK> I'm not familiar with depression's behavior. does the water fiilling mean it will erupt soon? very soon?
09:06:33 <SantaFe108> TomK, not necessarily, Depression will cycle between overflowing, dropping, refilling, and overflowing again in-between eruptions
09:06:52 <SantaFe108> the cycles tend to get more powerful leading up to an eruption
09:08:00 <linda> depression erupting I rhink
09:08:09 <linda> looks quite hot
09:08:28 <TomK> I've seen it erupt, pointed it out while leading geyser hill walks, but never 'watched' it. Remember, I'm nor a true 'gazer' just a former ranger naturalist.
09:09:22 <TomK> Thanks for that info, SantaFe
09:09:34 <SantaFe108> no problem
09:13:23 <TomK> So i should have left the cam on it?
09:14:03 <SantaFe108> hm
09:16:12 <SantaFe108> Depression from a distance is hard to tell, because the difference between an eruption and any other kind of high-energy thingy is that an eruption always floods the entire platform 360°
09:16:20 <SantaFe108> heavily
09:16:41 <Dave from B™> Have a great Sauturday everyone. Time to do some shopping for work and then home to hang xmas decs when it is in the 60's instead of teens.
09:16:49 <SantaFe108> Cya Dave
09:18:58 <SantaFe108> TomK, someone who knows better when it comes to Dep is KorbenC, we have been observing it over the past couple months and trying to "figure out" its behavior
09:19:26 <SantaFe108> GHG-18
09:19:27 <SantaFe108> nice
09:34:37 <SantaFe108> That was Depression erupting :)
09:41:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Time for training. bbl

10:53:33 <Betty> hi Tom
10:54:28 <Betty> Riverside ie
10:58:25 <7> Park closing early
10:58:58 <7> Today is last day now
10:59:17 <TomK> Just heard snow expected and roads will be closed tonight
10:59:56 <Betty> makes sense
11:00:02 <7> Preemptive closing is the new normal
11:14:06 <TomK> Dirty word. I forgot that the Daisy pre-set is all wrong, so we missed Daiddy
11:14:30 <TomK> 'daisy'
11:15:33 <TomK> Meaa culpa.
11:15:48 <TomK> "mea culpa"
11:16:06 <TomK> Tipe funni sum tymes
11:18:17 <TomK> Daisy was ie around 1110, but I didn't note the exact time. did anybody get it? and please enter it in geyser times.
11:23:52 <Betty> there is the note for roads closing today
11:24:19 <Betty> white bugs for that note
11:25:28 <Betty> btw, with /snow you can activate snowflakes on your screen :-)
11:35:10 <DanS> Back ups at N & W gates for last day in park

12:27:22 <SantaFe108> GHG-18
12:28:55 <Kristine> Getting ready to head out to Grand. Have a great afternoon.

12:33:29 <kiawe (at work)> W00t! Snow!
12:34:03 <SantaFe108> walking in a geyser wonderland
12:34:08 <Betty> aloha kiawe
12:34:17 <kiawe (at work)> Aloha, y'all!
12:34:32 <SantaFe108> Aloha kiawe
12:35:17 <kiawe (at work)> Unless you have extensive winter driving experience, this looks like a day to stay home with hot chocolate, appropriately spiced or spiked.
12:35:44 <kiawe (at work)> or the cider option.
12:37:57 <kiawe (at work)> I gather that the power is on, and no more ravens have made it their mission to mess with the webcams.
12:51:28 <kiawe (at work)> I've been watching less than half an hour, and it's already starting to accumulate.
12:54:34 <Michelle> Hello everyone!
12:54:38 <kiawe (at work)> Aloha!
12:54:52 <Michelle> Looks steamy

13:00:09 <Betty> lol
13:01:45 <Michelle> 63 here. The warm before the storm for us!
13:11:07 <GO SNOW> Looks like closing early is the right thing to do
13:11:21 <Michelle> What a way to end the season!
13:12:47 <kiawe (at work)> You have to be diehard or clueless to drive in this.
13:13:50 <Betty> hi Graham
13:14:24 <Betty> we can still see the benches
13:16:02 <Michelle> I Think we will be able to see Grand, not sure about Daisy
13:17:30 <GO SNOW> not snowing at West Gate
13:17:53 <kiawe (at work)> Intermittent whiteout.
13:18:22 <GO SNOW> storm must be south, Mammoth looks clear too
13:20:32 <kiawe (at work)> I can't tell if that's Sawmill blipping or just driven snow.
13:20:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello
13:20:42 <kiawe (at work)> Aloha!
13:20:58 <Michelle> Possibly Daisy back there
13:21:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> its time for snow
13:21:19 <Michelle> I can't tell
13:22:03 <Betty> there is daisy
13:22:08 <kiawe (at work)> Yep, Sawmill, and I think I see Tardy too between snow blasts.
13:22:30 <Michelle> No snow! We had snow last year!
13:23:23 <Michelle> Did I just make the snow slow down?😂😂
13:24:40 <Michelle> For a minute!
13:24:40 <Betty> you did :-)
13:25:48 <kiawe (at work)> *anti-snow dance*
13:27:32 <GO SNOW> one of the final crowds for OF
13:29:21 <kiawe (at work)> "thank you all for coming, now scram before you get snowed in!!"
13:29:46 <GO SNOW> not much chance of that, only a few inches forecast
13:30:27 <kiawe (at work)> To someone from SOCal, that's a blizzard.
13:33:45 <Michelle> So pretty with the snow!
13:35:18 <Michelle> Bubbler or pixels?
13:36:11 <Betty> bubbler
13:36:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats a big bubbler!
13:39:29 <Michelle> Snow is back!
13:42:00 <Michelle> I will keep checking BH
13:48:17 <Michelle> These snowflakes are worse than white shirts!😁
14:01:00 <GO SNOW> Grand must have been during OF
14:01:42 <GO SNOW> NPS prediction updated
14:03:24 <GO SNOW> looks like BH has a watcher
14:03:46 <Michelle> Thank you Go Snow!
14:04:05 <GO SNOW> you're welcome
14:04:25 <GO SNOW> glad it was reported in basin
14:11:28 <Michelle> I swear some of these snowflakes are falling up, not down!:)
14:16:42 <DanS> Brrr ... glad i was there last weekend.
14:18:25 <Michelle> Why does BH mess with me!!
14:19:50 <Michelle> I am seeing that south bubbler, right?
14:19:52 <kiawe (at work)> south bubbler appears active, but disappears when you zoom in.
14:21:30 <kiawe (at work)> It's all steamy and snowy, but the bubbler is going.
14:26:33 <Michelle> Just when I think I have all the steam down, someone throws in snow!
14:29:47 <Michelle> Well pixel and snowflake geysers have had at least 30 bursts!!😁
14:36:49 <kiawe (at work)> lol
14:37:42 <kiawe (at work)> I think I just saw the Abominable Snowman washing up in Marmot.
14:38:50 <Michelle> As long as he wasn't wearing a white shirt, he's goid!😂😂
14:39:25 <SantaFe108 2> :lol:
14:39:33 <Michelle> Good
14:59:34 <kiawe (at work)> no one wants to sit on the wet cold benches.
15:01:15 <Michelle> 😂😂
15:08:33 <Kevin iPad> Snow causes cancer.
15:09:39 <Michelle> Only when you sit and stare at it on a computer screen!
15:11:55 <kiawe (at work)> And remember not to eat the yellow snow! It is not shave ice!
15:13:12 <Michelle> Kevin uses lemons on his snow! Yellow snow!!:)
15:17:28 <Michelle> That's better
15:18:05 <Kitt> yuck, I am glad I didn't run in for the weekend
15:18:33 <Kitt> sometimes the weather report sounds worse than it really is
15:19:26 <Kitt> I have seen Steamboat in the snow, sounds awesome but not very photogenic
15:20:01 <Kitt> luckily it had stopped snowing
15:20:23 <Kitt> nice splash bee
15:21:40 <Kitt> so just the one bsb?
15:23:00 <kiawe (at work)> Heading out for lunch, stay warm and safe all! Aloha!
15:23:06 <Kitt> oh dear, I see Grand wasn't seen
15:23:33 <Michelle> Aloha.
15:23:43 <SantaFe108> Aloha kiawe
15:24:12 <Michelle> Grand went during OF. New time posted below

15:31:16 <Betty> Margaritaville is fun!
15:32:01 <SantaFe108> Hi Korben

15:49:43 <SantaFe108> ghg-18*
15:50:00 <SantaFe108> very nice
15:50:11 <Michelle> Almost surreal with the snow
15:51:08 <SantaFe108> last time ghg-18 had a maj was after Dep
15:51:35 <SantaFe108> although even if we were to zoom in the snow would probably make it impossible to tell
15:51:54 <SantaFe108> and the steam
15:52:04 <Michelle> I would zoom, but with the snow, it just pixelates
15:59:34 <linda> signing in
15:59:53 <Michelle> Signing out
16:00:25 <linda> Michelle, thanks for driving
16:00:28 <Michelle> Have a great evening and don't let BH mess with you!😁

17:14:36 <LindaG> Grove did
17:15:00 <LindaG> Bee is holding out
17:23:44 <LindaG> Riverside
17:23:48 <LindaG> Ie
17:26:45 <z> looks like West Gate is already closed, for people going in
17:27:35 <z> think if SB erupted now, and the Ranger is like, you have to leave
17:37:01 <LindaG> Thats pretty sustained hot temps on SB

17:54:42 <LindaG> Bee is imminent
17:55:00 <z> just need indy to pop in
17:55:17 <LindaG> Yup
17:56:07 <z> I'm surprised people are still on bw
17:56:16 <z> if they need to be out of park by 7
17:58:48 <Betty> still could be staff
18:00:33 <Kevin iPad> Guess what we found at the train today Betty.
18:00:59 <Betty> no idea
18:01:46 <Kevin iPad> A tarantula
18:04:44 <Kitt> they like the desert
18:05:19 <Kevin iPad> They do.
18:05:28 <Betty> by Jack Arnold?
18:06:48 <Kevin iPad> I don’t know Betty. He hid under the caboose before we could ask.
18:07:25 <Betty> :-)
18:08:04 <SantaFe108> Kevin iPad, did you atleast check his ticket first?
18:08:16 <Betty> hahaha

18:17:12 <Kitt> they would need to be out by midnight and it is daylight savings change tonight
18:17:42 <Kitt> nice splash from bee
18:18:01 <Kitt> maybe we will skip indy tonight
