06:42:31 <Ralph> Kat check your 1652 grand it went in as 0652
06:44:54 <Kat> Not awake!
06:46:45 <Kat> What are you talking about?
06:48:53 <Kat> yesterdays 1652 was entered by Linda - I entered 0642 ie this morning
06:49:24 <Ralph> you ehtered Grand 0652 but meant 1652 yesterday afternoon
06:49:41 <Kat> No I didn't
06:50:10 <Ralph> Look at the grand entry yesterday at 0652
06:51:05 <Ralph> Grand just now was not done
06:53:44 <Ralph> it done now
06:56:46 <Ralph> turban and or vent
06:59:03 <Ralph> I see you corrected it, thanks :)
06:59:33 <Kat> Innocent error
07:00:24 <Ralph> no problem I just wanted to give you a heads up, I hate flags
07:00:53 <Kat> M too thx
07:00:59 <Kat> Me*
07:10:03 <DeletedTeakettl> if y'all have ideas to make flags better, I'm all ears
07:14:02 <DeletedTeakettl> in an ideal world they are just meant to be a heads up to anyone looking at the data that the entry is disputed, but since GT is trying to serve a dual purpose (real time shared logbook AND database preserved for anyone who wants to look at geyser data), there is an awkward social element to them and not everyone uses them responsibly
07:14:47 <Kat> My issue is that you get a notice for the first flag but when a second flag is done the entry disappears and there is no opportunity to correct. So back to back flags removes the info from the person who entered...maybe an established time between flags to give time for the correction?
07:17:32 <DeletedTeakettl> hm, that actually might be a good compromise between what we've got currently and disabling the double flag delete altogether
07:17:41 <DeletedTeakettl> I will pass that on to the team
07:18:48 <Kat> I like getting the e-mail that notifies me when there is a flag - big improvement!
07:19:59 <Ralph> I like Kat's idea, I had made a time entry error and before I had a chance to correct it was double flagged
07:20:39 <Ralph> Ihe time to correct before deletion idea :)
07:21:32 <Kat> Ralph, that has happened to me as well!
07:22:30 <DeletedTeakettl> I've heard from a lot of folks that flags feel too punitive in their current form :c
07:24:01 <Kat> They are also used in retaliation when someone gets their knickers in a twist!
07:25:11 <Ralph> Kat, thanks for saying that, I was holding back :)
07:25:59 <Kat> LOL it's so true- doesn't happen much but it does
07:27:09 <DeletedTeakettl> yeah, and it's definitely not okay that it happens at all
07:27:37 <Kat> :thumbsup:
07:28:20 <DeletedTeakettl> lol, the road conditions report for the park is entertaining
07:28:45 <DeletedTeakettl> "roads remain open but drivers should expect extremely poor conditions"
07:29:14 <Kat> Crazy!
07:30:06 <DeletedTeakettl> still don't know if we're gonna brave the roads to do another download or not
07:33:04 <Kat> Where are you driving from?
07:33:19 <DeletedTeakettl> Mammoth
07:33:51 <Kat> That's a long drive in the snow
07:46:06 <Kat> :daisy:
07:50:23 <DeletedTeakettl> alright, we're gonna try for it... wish us luck
07:50:50 <Kat> Good Luck - be safe!
07:54:49 <Kat> OF
07:55:40 <Dave from B™> Good morning
07:55:55 <Kat> Morning Dave
07:56:50 <Dave from B™> 4" since 4 am and is is still coming down heavy
07:57:20 <Kat> Is the store closed?
08:02:03 <Dave from B™> No, but it might as well be:) Lots of projects and paperwork to do on slow days
08:02:18 <Dave from B™> We have to get ready for the Thurs-Sat Easter rush
08:02:52 <Kat> True - catch up and prepare!
08:10:06 <7> Lion?
08:10:31 <7> Ie
08:10:43 <Kat> Yep
08:13:37 <Dave from B™> Kat, are you still trying to make it to YNP this year?
08:14:26 <Kat> Doesn't look like it but all depends on health. I'm having a cardiac ablation on Thursday.
08:14:49 <Dave from B™> I saw that. No fun getting old.
08:15:20 <Kat> Nope - but the ablation can fix the problem
08:35:18 <Dave from B™> I don't think I have ever seen it snow as heavy as it is right now...up to 7" already
08:35:39 <Dave from B™> Kevin would love it:D
08:35:56 <Kat> Wow! How much do you have total?
08:37:17 <Dave from B™> Just the 7". We haven't had snow on the ground for over a month
08:39:07 <lori lurking Je> good snowy morning all!
08:39:19 <Kat> Hi Lori
08:40:28 <lori lurking Je> no snow prediction for here until the weekend, but the daughter in ND is in the 20-30 inch range.
08:41:16 <Dave from B™> Morning Lori
08:46:08 <Greg (working)> Morning all, loving the snow
08:46:23 <Kat> Hi Greg
08:46:35 <Greg (working)> Howdy Kat
08:56:03 <Greg (working)> Hi Kevin, it's snowing in the park, are you excited
08:56:30 <Kat> :lol:
08:56:39 <Kat> Hi Kevin
08:57:38 <lori lurking Je> Fountain Paint Pots isn't closed for the bear management area, correct?
09:22:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> @$%^@$$^ taxes. I HATE them.
09:24:21 <Kat> I did mine Saturday a week ago and my return was deposited this morning!
09:24:33 <Greg (working)> KAt. nice....
09:27:11 <Greg (working)> Taxes, my boss told be they foreget to send me a 1099 for some commissions I was paid for, I told him we already did our taxes and I asked twice for one back in Jan. UGH
09:28:04 <Kat> Now you have to do an ammendment?
09:28:22 <Greg (working)> Not happy about it
09:28:35 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Mine is way above my paygrade and I expect to have to cut a rather large check.
09:28:36 <Kat> That stinks!
09:29:04 <Greg (working)> They (his wife) forgot all 1099 this year.
09:29:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think there are 37 pages in mine. Totally insane.
09:29:38 <Greg (working)> Sorry to hear Kevin.
09:29:39 <Kat> Isn't there a law about timing of tax documents?
09:30:14 <Greg (working)> I thought there was. I thought they had to be post marked by Jan 31.
09:30:33 <Kat> Thats what I think
09:30:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think they have to be out by Jan 31
09:30:57 <Mike J> They do have to come out prior to Jan 31. And, I think, there can be fines associated with failure. but not sure how it is done or if it is worth it.
09:30:58 <Kat> You could probably add them to next year
09:31:07 <Mike J> All of this is why I married an accountant
09:31:22 <Kat> Hahaha
09:32:06 <Greg (working)> 2 things in live - taxes and snow
09:32:17 <Greg (working)> life
09:32:35 <Kat> :lol:

09:34:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think amazon gets its employees from government workers who couldn't pass probation.
09:38:49 <Kat> OF
09:43:46 <Kat> Not going to see Daisy most likely
09:44:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :p
09:53:45 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I'm selling stock to pay for my taxes
10:01:02 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Perry Mason music. Better install my snow chains.
10:01:44 <Kat> Drive safe Kevin!
10:03:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I can relate Dave. You earn it, they tax it. You spend it, they tax it. You buy it, they tax it. You keep it, they tax it. You sell it, they tax it. Then they tell you how much they are doing for you.
10:04:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵>
10:05:58 <Greg (working)> Thanks for driving Kat, have a kool drive Kevin
10:06:18 <Kat> yw

16:24:39 <Katie 🌻> I94 Billings to ND just closed due to heavy snow
16:26:49 <Greg 🤠> The wind has been krazy the last few days.
16:27:08 <Greg 🤠> Any precp left in the ground is being sucked right out, making for a terrible fire season
16:27:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wind has been brutal for 3 days straight here.
16:28:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 2nd year in a row without cactus blooms.
16:29:05 <Greg 🤠> The has been the windiest last few months that we can ever remember. No blooms here either.
16:29:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We have a bunch of tents set up for the Easter train runs. You will never guess what happened.

16:32:58 <linda> greetings
