13:25:09 <kiawe (at work)> Aloha folks!
13:25:32 <kiawe (at work)> Any idea when the streaming cam will be operational again?
13:28:10 <Kitt> Probably in May Kiawe
13:31:30 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> It is a Bosch. You should ask IF it will be operational...
13:45:45 <kiawe (at work)> :)
13:46:45 <kiawe (at work)> We'll have to wait until Comcast (or whomever) can get service trucks into the park, then.
13:47:12 <kiawe (at work)> In that case, aloha everyone; I'm outta here!
13:47:21 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Century Link
15:51:03 <Michelle> Still imagination cam?
15:52:08 <Michelle> If you imagine on the left you can see Grand, center we have a beautiful BH and to the right is OF.
15:52:43 <Betty> awww, beautiful
15:53:39 <DanS working> and Sawmill ie...
15:54:11 <Michelle> Circle X geyser need to stop blocking our view. It's not very pretty.
15:54:11 <DanS working> :)
15:55:39 <Michelle> Does Circle X have an indicator?šŸ˜
15:58:17 <Michelle> If we could see Sawmill, it would be erupting green today!!
16:00:00 <Michelle> Did anyone else see that Bigfoot run past Circle X? šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚
16:01:53 <DanS working> Chased by a hungry Griz?

18:10:59 <77> and nice that texted worked, thanks
18:11:05 <Terry> Yes! On another note, is anyone having trouble with the dashboard? Weather. times and predictions aren't working and the only static that will show is OF, but it does update.
18:11:22 <linda> 77, yw, won't be the first time the cam healed on it's own
18:11:43 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Just a reminder I will be gone for my shifts next week. I think someone picked them up but not sure.
18:12:27 <77> they really have a lack of snow in the basin this year
18:13:04 <linda> bee splash
18:13:23 <77> that would be a fun first geyser

19:04:40 <linda> not sure why it came up really

20:11:59 <linda> Michelle, night thanks for driving
20:12:45 <Michelle> Night everyone!! Go BH!! We are watching you!:)
20:15:21 <linda> Jeff, hey
20:15:36 <Jeff> hows it going linda
20:16:01 <linda> Jeff, good and you? counting down the days?
20:16:28 <Jeff> yea getting to that point. im just ready to be back home at lower hams
20:16:45 <linda> sounds lovely
20:17:02 <linda> I should be there in august/sept, looking forward to that
20:17:15 <Jeff> looking like everything will be back to normal for us this year
20:17:44 <linda> that's great. I have reservations at Roosevelt, haven't heard that it is not opening. I hope it does
20:17:55 <Jeff> from what ive been told we will also be back to sit down dining
20:18:05 <linda> nice
20:18:20 <Jeff> from what ive seen and heard they xanterra is hiring people for roosevelt
20:18:25 <linda> last year was funky food wise :)
20:18:58 <linda> excellent, I've never stayed there and its my perfect trip. a few days at roosevelt and at OF
20:18:59 <Jeff> yea i wish we couldve stuck to normal dine in food
20:19:34 <Jeff> ill be travelling all over the park this summer for some photography
20:19:39 <linda> we ate a lot of cold cuts lol
20:20:12 <Jeff> we didnt even have our employee dining room open last year. the upper store had to keep bringing food down for us to eat
20:20:15 <linda> yeah washburn should be open that will make traveling easier
20:20:32 <linda> yikes on the food
20:20:56 <Jeff> yea i think the only road closure this year will be OF to west thumb which is gonna suck wanting to get photos of the lake at sunset
20:21:17 <linda> Jeff, true :(
20:21:35 <linda> seems like it's always something
20:21:51 <Jeff> but im hoping to hike up washburn this year and getting a couple photos
20:22:39 <linda> I'm hoping the smoke isn't there but late august/Sept is tough, must say it made for some nice pictures in the UGB
20:23:03 <linda> Kind of softened things up,
20:23:08 <Jeff> yea im tired of seeing smoke around the basin for most of the summer
20:23:35 <linda> between 8k feet and smoke my lungs weren't happy
20:24:01 <Jeff> the last couple years its just been the smoke thats been killing my lungs
20:24:54 <linda> the worst was one day we went down to see Tetons, the smoke was horrendous, couldn't see the tetons
20:25:38 <linda> looking forwward to a few more bees and grands and some new ones in person
20:25:54 <Jeff> the worst for me was the lonestar fire with all the smoke
20:27:38 <linda> that was pretty close
20:28:06 <Jeff> that was the only time in the 4 seasons ive done so far where ive been worried about anything
20:28:50 <linda> i remember watching it on webcam
20:29:23 <Jeff> there were days it was hard to breathe without coughing cause of the smoke
20:29:41 <linda> very unhealthy
20:29:50 <linda> and scary
20:30:11 <Jeff> most of the employees started packing there stuff just in case we got the order to evacuate
20:30:28 <linda> that's smart you never know
20:31:03 <linda> I live in an area that burns so always makes me nervous when I smell smoke
20:31:20 <Jeff> and then i think a couple days later we had gotten word that they were closing lower hams early due to the poor sales from the bridge closure
20:31:44 <linda> Jeff, I think that was the year you left early:(
20:31:53 <Jeff> yea it was
20:32:08 <linda> Hoping for a better year for all
20:32:47 <Jeff> from what i was told it looks like were gonna have a pretty full staff this year which will make it easier for everyone
20:34:12 <linda> It sure will. fingers crossed :)
20:35:05 <linda> Jeff, what was your best geyser last year?
20:35:41 <Jeff> uhhhh........ giantess cause i didnt get out as much as i wanted to
20:35:53 <Jeff> and got to see the first burst from lower hams
20:36:31 <linda> Ha I forgot she erupted
20:36:52 <linda> That's great
20:36:58 <Jeff> im hoping i get a chance to see f&m this summer
20:37:29 <linda> I've never been there so that would be nice to see
20:37:58 <linda> planning on doing a lot of walking around the basin
20:38:05 <Jeff> thats one of my last bucket list geysers
20:39:09 <Jeff> it looks like this summer some positions will be working 4 days and getting 3 days off so hopefully ill be able to get a solid chance of seeing more geysers
20:40:44 <linda> Jeff, that will be nice. I would be suffering if I had to work there and not be able to look around
20:41:42 <Jeff> hopefully my back doesnt start acting up like it was last year
20:42:20 <linda> :(
20:43:03 <linda> Jeff, when is your start date?
20:43:03 <Jeff> it hasnt really been bothering me lately but im also concerned about my ankle cause i tore a couple ligaments and tendons after i got home last year
20:43:20 <Jeff> i start may 23rd
20:43:49 <Jeff> so memorial day weekend is when lower hams is opening for the season
20:43:49 <linda> exercises should help. I;ve destroyed my ankle a few times. last time I did physical therapy
20:44:22 <linda> only about 2 months, wow
20:44:40 <Jeff> ive been doing some physical therapy on it as much as my time allows me but currently working 2 jobs doesnt give me much time
20:44:55 <linda> i guess not
20:45:18 <linda> I think OF is erupting
20:46:33 <linda> well time for bed. great talking Jeff
20:46:45 <Jeff> have a good night linda
20:46:54 <linda> Jeff, U too
20:47:02 <Kevin iPad> Good Knight Linda
20:47:10 <linda> Kevin iPad, night
21:35:17 <kcmule> lion
