07:22:27 <Bart> Nice Beehive on the GOSA overnight capture :)
07:22:57 <Kat> :thumbsup:
07:30:38 <linda> nice snow
07:30:50 <linda> morning
07:31:17 <Kat> Morning - look at the snow makes me cold! Haha
07:31:32 <linda> :)
07:43:56 <Bart> is there a view of Riverside area?/
07:47:24 <Bart> ugh! thanks
07:47:26 <Kat> You would see it in this view - too much steam and snow
08:03:36 <Dave from B™> wonderful
08:03:40 <Dave from B™> :P
08:03:55 <Dave from B™> I wish it was staying in the mountains
08:04:21 <Kat> Morning all!
08:08:51 <Dave from B™> Good morning Kat!
08:15:15 <Dave from B™> We are supposed to get 8-14" tomorrow and Wed morning and 6 straight lows under 20. Very unusual for April.
08:17:39 <Kat> May not be a bad things with April fires alreay
08:17:53 <Kat> already*
08:19:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We are supposed to get 80° and sunny.
08:23:03 <Dave from B™> We need moisture. Why can't it be rain?
08:23:18 <Dave from B™> At least in the valleys. That is normal for April
08:23:38 <Kat> Dave from B™, true - rain would be better
08:23:56 <Dave from B™> Trees aren't going to be happy. 78 last Friday. 5 Wed night
08:24:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This is the 2nd year in a row we haven't had cactus bloom. :(
08:24:32 <Kat> No they aren't
08:25:49 <Dave from B™> MA was sure lucky
08:26:20 <Kat> she sure was! That would be so scary
08:37:01 <Kat> OF
08:46:34 <Dave from B™> We have a big empty dry field behind us with frequent trains going by. It does worry me when it is really dry.
08:50:15 <Dave from B™> So, winter driving conditions for YNP opening?
08:52:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Trains shouldn't be a big problem Dave unless they have a coal burning steamer I don't know about.
08:53:44 <Dave from B™> There is a lot of screeching as we are on a long corner
08:55:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is just rail flange squeal. When it pulls around a curve it presses the flanges against the rail.
08:57:11 <Dave from B™> That's good to know
08:58:30 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If they are too sharp they even put a flange greaser on the lubricate them. Let me find a picture of one of those.
09:02:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Here it is. https://www.trains.com/trn/train-basics/abcs-of-railroading/the-fine-science-of-friction-control/
09:03:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Once the sun gets higher you can see this one on a live video in Cajon Pass: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXNTIK36moM&ab_channel=VirtualRailfan
09:04:36 <Dave from B™> I'll have to take a look when I'm near the tracks next
09:53:44 <Kat> It's trying to clear down basin
09:54:55 <Kat> :daisy:

12:00:00 <Betty> hi all
12:06:05 <Katie 🌻> Hi Betty
12:06:39 <Katie 🌻> OF
12:07:30 <Betty> hi Katie 🌻
12:15:43 <Kat> It's really coming down!
12:16:50 <Katie 🌻> Yup
12:18:25 <Betty> hi Kat
12:19:08 <Betty> oh, Beehive went to the dark side
12:24:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :p
12:38:36 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
12:38:41 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵
12:38:52 <Betty> hi Dave from B™
12:38:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
12:39:40 <Betty> everything other went to the white side
12:40:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just got my oven working. Nice to have it back.
12:40:23 <Betty> great
12:41:17 <linda> Katie 🌻, :thumbsup:
12:41:36 <linda> I think they were talking about over a foot of snow in the mountains
12:41:48 <Betty> hey Linda
12:41:50 <linda> dome ie
12:41:51 <Katie 🌻> Yup - and wind!
12:41:56 <linda> Betty, hi
12:42:21 <linda> I think I'll have an early night tonight :)
12:42:31 <Betty> we had 4 inch of snow saturday, all gone today
12:43:07 <linda> I think I had snow twice, but the one storm was substantial
12:43:09 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Snow and gone are two words that can be used in the same sentence.
12:43:46 <Betty> bummer we missed the bear on saturday
12:44:11 <linda> oh no. Where did they see it?
12:44:46 <Betty> Mara reported fresh bear tracks on the bw between Sawmill and Lion
12:44:56 <linda> Ok, I have to do my taxes. Be back later. :)
12:45:10 <Betty> have "fun"
12:45:15 <linda> Betty, oh nice, maybe not if you are walking along those tracks though
12:58:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Doing taxes is worse than a blizzard
12:59:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Tracks? Where is the train?
13:23:06 <Katie 🌻> Depression
13:32:39 <Dave from B™> Bears might back to sleep after this week
13:39:32 <Betty> lol
13:49:16 <Katie 🌻> OF
14:01:46 <Ralph> What does the Riverside area look like??
14:03:31 <Dave from B™> Someone earlier mentioned Mara was in the basin recently. Is she doing some more research at OF before the park opens?
14:03:54 <Katie 🌻> Ralph, looks like Riverside is ID
14:05:33 <Ralph> Thanks, Art posted Rside
14:08:04 <Betty> Dave, yes. She is part of a research team. I think they were at Doublet pool
14:22:10 <Dave from B™> fun
14:23:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I would have paid her to drop a laundry detergent pod into Aurum.
14:24:03 <Dave from B™> now now
14:29:53 <kc (working)> KL is officially in Aurum withdrawal mode
14:31:43 <Betty> definitely
14:32:19 <kc (working)> I had to go thru a 12 step program for Plume, so I understand
14:33:42 <Ben VL> Hey, at least there are like, 3 other geysers on the hill that still erupt which you can watch
14:35:10 <Ben VL> such a vibrant part of the basin these days *sniff*
14:43:01 <Mario> I had major withdrawal when Sawmill went dormant, and now it's as happy as can be. There's always hope! :)
15:02:28 <Betty> Marmots tail ie
15:25:00 <Betty> time for sleep, night all

16:00:07 <linda> thanks
16:09:12 <linda> going to be a slow night :)
16:10:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Slow or snow?
16:10:31 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, interchangeable I think :)
16:13:08 <linda> so much easier to see on this screen than on those stupid controls
16:13:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I really hate this cam.
16:14:42 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, it is bad, cant see anything and the controls stink
16:22:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They couldn't have made it worse if they tried.
16:23:26 <linda> It's true even the white background is bad for the eyes
16:23:37 <linda> dome ie
16:26:01 <linda> doggie
16:27:17 <linda> he has a dusting
16:27:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not a hot dog for sure.
16:29:18 <linda> been facing into the wind
16:39:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wind here is horrible. WSW32G39
16:39:54 <linda> :( storms or just wind?
16:40:45 <linda> looks like penta
16:41:11 <linda> oh yeah
16:41:19 <linda> penta ie

16:57:33 <linda> bulger stopped
16:57:41 <linda> penta winding down
17:02:27 <linda> dilapidated too
17:15:24 <linda> dome ie
17:25:03 <DeletedTeakettl> Glad we did our stuff early this morning
17:25:16 <Ben VL> I bet
17:26:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You mean you don't like snow?
17:27:46 <DeletedTeakettl> I love snow; our pressure transducer does not :)
17:33:40 <DeletedTeakettl> our problem is that memory for that thing lasts a little over a day so we have to go in daily to download and and delete
17:34:08 <DeletedTeakettl> but i have strong doubts we can make it in tomorrow
17:34:49 <DeletedTeakettl> there's already an accident that's been blocking traffic between Gardiner and Mammoth
17:34:51 <LindaGp> wondering if daisy will appear or if we will see it
17:34:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My daughter just sent me a picture of snow in Idaho Falls.
17:35:12 <Ben VL> Am I correct that this is on doublet?
17:35:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We have horrible wind here now. WSW36G45. :p
17:35:25 <LindaGp> Kevin L™ 🌵, is it.pretty?
17:35:32 <DeletedTeakettl> Doublet is *decked out* right now
17:36:27 <Ben VL> also vault is apparently really high?
17:36:33 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Just light right now Linda. I haven't heard any quail here today but I did hear my neighbor's man chicken.
17:36:57 <DeletedTeakettl> Infant a few days ago was crystal clear, then over 36 hours or so went back to normal
17:37:42 <LindaGp> Kevin L™ 🌵, :)
17:37:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Here is the Idaho road cams: https://511.idaho.gov/camera/134/@-112.44815,44.12485,9?show=roadReports,wazeReports,cameras,trafficSpeeds,stationsAlert,weatherWarningsAreaEvents
17:38:08 <DeletedTeakettl> not sure what's up over there but I wouldn't mind the seismic nodes getting a bonus Giantess eruption (I can dream...)
17:38:19 <LindaGp> Think I'm frozen
17:38:28 <Ben VL> as long as it waits until late may
17:38:57 <LindaGp> oknreset
17:39:27 <DeletedTeakettl> our equipment all comes out the 14th
17:41:12 <LindaGp> I think daisy
17:41:49 <LindaGp> Yup
17:42:23 <Ben VL> avg still under 2h in this weather
17:42:48 <LindaGp> :)
17:43:12 <DeletedTeakettl> I can't remember what Splendid did previously after Daisy eruptions (I don't often look), but the one I went up to see, Splendid drained out of sight as fast as Brilliant
17:43:36 <Ben VL> all the way down?
17:43:41 <LindaGp> Nice it cleared a bit to see daisy
17:44:10 <LindaGp> Dome ie
17:44:26 <Ben VL> it would drop about 6"-8" or so over the summer
17:44:34 <DeletedTeakettl> Out of sight from the trail; I'm not allowed to step off if I'm not working
17:45:05 <Ben VL> I figured you meant from the trail
17:45:16 <LindaGp> And I thought tonight would be quiet
17:45:57 <DanS working> plate
17:46:16 <LindaGp> Second time today
17:48:03 <LindaGp> And twice yesterday
17:49:31 <LindaGp> Lc ie
17:50:13 <DeletedTeakettl> both Plate and Slot have had happy water levels that last few days
18:24:41 <LindaGp> Sawmill is off
18:42:26 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have a table saw if you need a saw.
18:44:23 <LindaGp> :D
18:51:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I also have tannerite if you need toothpicks.
18:51:57 <linda> lol
18:53:27 <LindaGp> Of taking its time, it could use a bit.of tannerite
18:55:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Or a wrist rocket and a Tide pod.
18:55:27 <LindaGp> :thumbsup:
19:00:28 <LindaGp> OF
19:21:24 <LindaGp> Bee is alive
19:34:08 <LindaGp> Daisy ie
