07:02:01 <Betty> good morning all
07:03:22 <Michelle> Morning Betty
07:03:55 <Michelle> :lion:
07:04:04 <Betty> hi Michelle
07:11:08 <Betty> morning linda
07:12:41 <linda> Betty, hi
07:13:55 <Michelle> Hi Linda
07:14:07 <linda> Michelle, hi
07:16:04 <Mike J> Good Friday morning everyone.
07:16:12 <Mike J> Or would that be good Good Friday morning?
07:16:47 <Betty> good morning Mike J
07:20:05 <Mike J> I'll only be on a relatively short time today. Gotta drop a friend at the mechanics. But I wanted to see a little snow to offset 90 degree days.
07:20:38 <Betty> pretty warm
07:21:49 <linda> Mike J, hi
07:22:50 <Mike J> That's just slightly above normal in these parts. Just a little "warm"-up for the coming 110s
07:26:06 <Mike J> Seven weeks until my Yellowstone trip.
07:26:09 <Mike J> Not that I'm counting.
07:27:15 <Michelle> OF window
07:27:53 <555> never count, never plan, bad things happen
07:27:59 <linda> Mike J, :thumbsup:
07:28:25 <Mike J> Keep moving. nothing to see here. Nothing to count here.
07:28:38 <555> :thumbsup:
08:01:59 <555> Linda must be watching and OF knows it!!!
08:08:20 <Michelle> If that 6:02 is right, that's over a 2 hour interval for OF
08:09:06 <Michelle> OF
08:09:38 <555> yay
08:09:41 <Betty> I bet it is a short
08:13:11 <555> long
08:13:38 <Betty> :thumbsup:
08:16:25 <555> 2h 7 min interval
08:17:15 <Betty> one of the longest interval I´ve ever seen
08:17:45 <Mike J> Have fun all
08:28:43 <33> Not a very big line at West Gate
08:29:28 <Michelle> Riverside
08:30:43 <Betty> ah, we have NPS predictions again
08:32:57 <Michelle> Looks like twice as many predictions!!:):)
08:40:56 <Betty> :daisy:
08:41:01 <Michelle> :daisy:
08:50:26 <Michelle> Tardy
08:59:01 <enotswolleY sni> Roads are open text
08:59:38 <33> “Snow tires required”…good luck with that
09:01:01 <33> I’d love to see them turn around cars that do not have proper tires. Sadly, no one leaves their entrance kiosks to look
09:01:25 <ynpvisitor260> Road barely looks plowed
09:02:08 <ynpvisitor260> Looks like single plow heading out
09:07:08 <ynpvisitor260> "And they're off"
09:07:35 <ynpvisitor260> Looks like a plow leading the way and maybe some folks passing the plow lol
09:17:07 <Michelle> Grand
09:27:48 <ynpvisitor260> Decent size line of cars
09:30:25 <Kitt> nice steam blob
09:30:58 <ynpvisitor260> Can finally see the end of the line of cars, not bad considering the conditions
09:31:34 <ynpvisitor260> It willbe like a snow coach ride minus the $500 fees
09:32:30 <Kitt> never paid anything like $500 for a snowcoach ride
09:33:24 <Kitt> hopefully road stays open
09:34:00 <Michelle> OF window
09:34:21 <ynpvisitor260> Snow coach is now $144 one way per person
09:34:50 <Kitt> so $288
09:35:09 <ynpvisitor260> I'll be sure to fact check all my jokes going forward
09:35:59 <ynpvisitor260> It will be like a "one person with no lodging" snow coach ride minus the $288 fees
09:37:22 <linda> always thought snowcoach was more
09:38:17 <linda> roads look iffy :)
09:40:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Iffy? Nasty is more like it.
09:41:37 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, >(
09:42:26 <linda> the shine on the roads on static, can't be good
09:47:22 <Betty> hi Kevin L™ 🌵

19:34:17 <john> Anyone want to update OF time?
19:34:56 <KorbenC> sure, what time?
19:35:40 <john> I noted it at 19:15 thanks Korben
19:35:54 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
19:39:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks like a nasty tornado night near Memphis Korben.
19:39:51 <KorbenC> yea, its massive
19:42:34 <KorbenC> Going through a residential area too
19:43:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I have some friends that live there and another set near Atlanta. Tornadoes are worse than snow, especially at night.
19:44:11 <KorbenC> With hail too
19:44:20 <KorbenC> Swining around at 200mps
19:48:13 <john> :daisy:
19:53:13 <Kevin L™ 🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
19:53:49 <john> yeah looks like :bee: is in for the evening...
19:54:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I was thinking we were missing eruptions. I am thinking now we are looking at 1 to 3 day intervals. :(
19:59:06 <john> how do I add a time for daisy?
20:00:42 <DanS working> john, do you have a GT account?
20:01:00 <DanS working> Geyser Times
20:01:28 <john> I don't think so but not sure
20:03:07 <DanS working> Believe you need a GT account and be logged in to enter a time
20:03:33 <john> okay I am checking on acct
20:03:43 <DanS working>
20:08:07 <john> Okay, got it.
20:09:01 <DanS working> :thumbsup:
20:09:18 <john> Thanks!
20:10:23 <DanS working> On my laptop I keep GT open to make entries when seen on webcam
20:11:11 <john> that will work for me... just need some practice...
20:11:23 <DanS working> Just toggle over to GT from webcam window
20:11:39 <DanS working> to make entry
20:12:01 <john> :lion:
20:12:32 <DanS working> No worries, we were all new to this once upon a time :)
20:14:50 <john> :thumbsup:
20:15:53 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They will red flag you anyway.
20:16:23 <john> Am I not allowed to enter times?
20:17:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes you can. I just get red flagged because of stupid things.
20:17:44 <DanS working> There are some gazers on GT who are, let us say "anal" about entries...
20:18:35 <john> Oh well it won't be my first mistake...
20:18:46 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Yes. One that ticked me off was a posted an ie time and was red flagged since I didn't post the actual start time.
20:18:55 <DanS working> Don't let them stop you from making legit entries
20:19:33 <john> Okay I will do what I can
20:21:41 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sometimes it is hard, especially with these controls, to enter it so. Most of the time someone gets an accurate time so I let that stand. If a post doesn't show up after a few minutes I will post it when I have time.
20:22:53 <john> yeah usually there are plenty of folks on here who catch it. Just wondered if no one posts what to do.
20:24:39 <Kevin L™ 🌵> About half the time I am trying to log on after it kicks me off and it tells me I need authorization. :p
20:25:11 <john> LOL been there done that!
20:31:14 <john> riverside
20:52:26 <Bill> wow, Riverside hasn't been that early in a long time
20:53:26 <john> well I could be wrong Bill there was a lot of steam going on...
20:53:55 <john> OF
20:54:00 <Bill> np just wondering
20:56:55 <Bill> Short
20:57:32 <john> hard to see with the light or dark...
20:59:42 <Bill> Bee does not look good
21:00:12 <john> bummer
21:00:26 <Bill> take a quick look ar riverside
21:01:06 <Bill> sorry, please
21:02:29 <KorbenC> Hi Bill (Beverly?)
21:02:39 <Bill> no
21:02:51 <KorbenC> Well, I was close :P
21:03:02 <KorbenC> John, not sure about riverside but also not sure it was not riverside :(
21:03:05 <KorbenC> :)**
21:03:21 <john> LOL
21:03:26 <Bill> how do you go back that far
21:03:48 <KorbenC> The above recording as entitled: Hmmm
21:04:00 <Bill> yes
21:04:12 <KorbenC> ?
21:04:43 <john> I was try to catch bee and riverside...
21:04:47 <KorbenC> John, I would have entered that as Riverside, the steam is alot clearer on my recording than the getvideo
21:05:04 <john> :thumbsup:
21:06:05 <john> there was a lot of steaming going on in them thar trees... just sayin...
21:06:15 <KorbenC> Bill, did you get onto the recording?
21:06:34 <KorbenC> Yea, the interval makes sense too, 5h 41m isn't really anything surprising
21:06:45 <Bill> yes, is that something you do
21:07:22 <KorbenC> Bill, I am so confused
21:07:42 <KorbenC> Namely, what do I do?
21:08:12 <Bill> how do you get that hmmmm recording
21:08:36 <KorbenC> ./getvideo [how many minutes] Name
21:09:32 <Bill> thanks I thought one could go back only 20 minutes, my mistake
21:09:53 <KorbenC> Cool, they can do 30min now
21:10:36 <Bill> good to know
21:12:13 <john> I am going to leave it there for you late night viewers. Good night from wintery upper geyser basin.
21:12:59 <Bill> movie time for me, cya
21:13:11 <john> cya
21:13:19 <john> night Korben!
21:13:30 <KorbenC> bye John, Bill
21:13:49 <KorbenC> Speaking of Bills, does anyone know if the beverlys will be back at Norris this year?
21:15:46 <Bill> Not gone yet is that riverside now
21:15:49 <KorbenC> great, the steam is back
21:15:51 <KorbenC> lmfao
21:17:00 <KorbenC> I am not even gonna try and figure out which one is Riverside, this one has more steam but 2030 also had a fair bit of steam on my screen
21:17:47 <Bill> that is in a different place than the other i think, but I'm not good at this
21:18:30 <KorbenC> IDK either
21:18:32 <Bill> Well got to go
21:18:47 <KorbenC> me too, cya
