07:48:38 <KorbenC(22)> Morning Betty,Linda
07:48:52 <Betty> hi Korben
07:49:00 <LindaG> Betty, hi
07:49:02 <Michelle> Morning Betty
07:49:20 <Betty> hi Linda and Michelle
07:52:41 <Mike J> Good morning all
07:53:49 <Betty> morning Mike J
07:55:24 <Michelle> Good Morning Mike J
07:55:36 <Mike J> In one week, I will be in the park.
07:55:44 <Mike J> To say I am excited is a bit of an understatement.
07:55:47 <Betty> :thumbsup:
07:55:48 <CraigC> Mike J, :thumbsup:
07:56:01 <Mike J> I'll try to wave to everybody
07:56:03 <LindaG> Mike J, :thumbsup:
07:56:13 <Michelle> :thumbsup:
07:56:30 <Mike J> Now, if it just doesn't snow.
07:56:53 <CraigC> maybe I can talk myself into taking a risk and go up and try to find a camp site next week
07:57:09 <LindaG> CraigC, :thumbsup:
07:57:48 <Mike J> As much as I like the immediancy of being in the park, I am just not a camping guy. I just stay in West and get up real early.
07:57:48 <Michelle> OF
07:57:55 <CraigC> my daughter is headed to Oregon tonight, so I have to dog sit thru Sunday
07:58:22 <CraigC> Mike J, same, but in a trailer, not a hotel
07:59:34 <CraigC> Mike J, last year in May, "real early", as in 6am wasn't good enough anymore.... there were already idiots parked in the road looking at distant bison causing jams
07:59:50 <Mike J> CraigC Yeah, I could buy into that. My idea of roughing it is a houseboat on Lake Powell. And if you've been on one of those, you know "roughing it " is not exactly rough.
08:00:22 <Mike J> CraigC I was there in July and managed to miss the entrance traffic and almost all bison jams. Couldn't believe it.
08:00:40 <CraigC> Mike J, hahahaha, I get it. Roughing it for me now is having to use propane to heat the trailer instead of an elctrical hookup
08:00:42 <Mike J> Happened to drive by the entrance on the way home at noon and REALLY couldn't believe it.
08:01:36 <CraigC> maybe I just had bad timing, but it made me not want to go back in the rest of the year
08:06:35 <Mike J> I understand the frustration, particularly when I think something is getting ready to happen. But, then I sit in front of the steam and all the reasons for being there come back.
08:09:24 <CraigC> :thumbsup:

08:24:10 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Thought you would enjoy this Korben:
08:34:51 <Michelle> :lion:
08:38:09 <KorbenC(22)> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, wozers, those are spectacular
08:38:44 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Pretty awesome for sure.
08:41:11 <Ryan> Morning
08:41:36 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Morning
08:41:47 <Betty> morning Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, Ryan
08:42:04 <Michelle> Morning Ryan
08:42:14 <Michelle> Morning Kevin
08:42:17 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Hi Betty. You are early
08:42:48 <Betty> long weekeend, yesterday was a national holiday
08:44:12 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> OK, ours is Monday.
08:45:55 <Ryan> We were going to go to a caving event this weekend - but not now. Hope is sick. We think Lymes.
08:47:29 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Not good.
08:48:07 <Ryan> She is a scientist who studies swamps. She had Lymes a few years back, so she recognized symptoms yesterday pretty good.
08:48:24 <Ryan> Doctor asked her "when was your last tick bite?" Hope says "I don't know, yesterday?"
08:48:48 <Ryan> Doc: "Well that's pretty quick." Hope: "I mean, I stopped counting after the sixth or seventh bite in just the last month..."
08:49:16 <Betty> Lymes is bad.
08:49:56 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Ticks are one thing I really hated at Fort Hood. We would wear tick collars on our boots to keep them off. Chiggers were a close runner up.
08:51:47 <Ryan> Hope's first round with Lyme's wasn't fun. She caught this way earlier now though. The fever hadn't even started yet.
08:52:24 <Betty> Little Squirt ie
08:52:29 <Betty> ?
08:52:47 <Ryan> Most folks she works with have had it repeatedly over the years. Her doctor was supposed to prescribe Doxy as a prophylactic.
08:56:32 <CraigC> testing the
08:56:42 <Michelle> :daisy:
08:57:47 <CraigC> I got a new PC last year.... is there still a Flash thing to do on here, I forgot what it was
09:15:22 <Betty> headed out, bbl
09:15:50 <Michelle> Bye Betty
09:24:19 <Michelle> OF window
09:33:55 <Jake> Craig there was enabling Flash in the browser to get the more real-time video stream, I don't know if that's still a thing
09:34:48 <CraigC> Jake, yeah... I don't know how to tell. But it seems I am like about 5 seconds behind when people call out eruptions
09:37:11 <Michelle> Craig C, don't go by the time I call them, your screen will have about a 40 second delay from mine.
09:37:44 <Jake> maybe you need a brain upgrade!
09:38:15 <CraigC> LOL
09:38:31 <CraigC> mostly memory
09:39:06 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Flash no longer works
09:39:19 <CraigC> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, ok, thanks
09:40:35 <CraigC> has it always been about 40 seconds from camop screen.... I don't remember it being that long
09:40:56 <KorbenC(22)> CraigC, you have a couple of choices, watch the main cam which is about 35sec delay, be a camop which has about 10sec delay, or do a painful VLC thing which makes it about 15sec
09:41:45 <Jake> or visit the park which is reported to be less than 1 sec lag
09:41:51 <Michelle> Or make a trip to Yellowstone, sit in front of feature, 0 second delay!!:):)
09:41:58 <CraigC> hahahaha
09:42:28 <Michelle> OF
09:43:00 <CraigC> sometimes I miss doing the camop thing, but my life is too unpredictable now. Maybe I can again another time
09:45:27 <LindaG> did you leave me geysers?
09:45:55 <Michelle> :bee: is waiting for you
09:45:56 <CraigC> I hope JoeN comes back
09:46:32 <LindaG> Michelle, nice
09:48:02 <Michelle> Castle is waiting too
09:48:16 <LindaG> :)
09:49:37 <Michelle> As soon as Korben installs our remote, everything will be good!
09:49:57 <CraigC> F&M feels ripe....
09:49:57 <LindaG> Michelle, >( for sure
09:51:13 <Ryan> Is F&M not really caring that Angle isn't playing nicely?
09:52:03 <KorbenC(22)> Economic is cycling overflow
09:56:45 <Michelle> Castle
09:56:57 <LindaG> oh sure
09:57:12 <Michelle> Sorry
09:57:26 <LindaG> :)
09:58:26 <Michelle> I will leave it here and release the controls
09:58:44 <LindaG> ok thanks
09:59:05 <Greg (working)> Thanks for driving Michelle.
09:59:16 <LindaG> got it
09:59:49 <LindaG> thanks for driving
09:59:53 <Michelle> Going to have a nap. My nieces twin boys came a little after 3 this morning and I didn't get a lot of sleep.
10:00:26 <Michelle> Have a wonderful day everyone!! Thanks for driving Linda!
10:00:42 <LindaG> Michelle, enjoy
10:07:41 <LindaG> CraigC, I think if we had a different cam Joe might come back
10:09:10 <CraigC> LindaG, he said his eye was doing better, so maybe he will at least come back and visit
10:09:56 <LindaG> our screen is terrible to look at with a white background
10:10:13 <KorbenC(22)> Can we do a zoom on Beehive please?
10:10:18 <LindaG> I cant remember if you drove this cam or not
10:10:45 <LindaG> splashes
10:11:08 <CraigC> LindaG, is this a new cam since they moved to the top of the Inn?
10:11:25 <Greg (working)> Have a good drive Linda, G'moring all
10:11:38 <LindaG> I think so, geez i can't remember
10:11:45 <KorbenC(22)> Thank you camop (Linda?)
10:11:57 <LindaG> KorbenC(22), :thumbsup:
10:12:11 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Yes. The other one got hit by a falling flagpole.
10:12:20 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, ah yes
10:12:26 <CraigC> I don't remember if I started before or after it was on top of the Inn
10:12:39 <LindaG> CraigC, I think after
10:13:21 <LindaG> CraigC, lol what were they water bison?
10:13:38 <CraigC> the otters?
10:13:46 <LindaG> CraigC, yeah
10:13:53 <CraigC> LOL, I forgot about that
10:13:58 <LindaG> CraigC, I forget what we called them
10:15:14 <LindaG> you were here for the wolves and that cute deer that thought it was a bison
10:15:49 <CraigC> yep. That deer one came up as a memory within the last couple of weeks
10:16:02 <LindaG> dome ie
10:16:16 <LindaG> CraigC, he was so cute, so happy to see his bison friends
10:16:25 <CraigC> and they still have the video on the YNP page of when I got the wolvers circling the bison
10:16:55 <LindaG> CraigC, yeah that was great
10:17:08 <CraigC> and when I got those 2 young elk playing in the meadow
10:17:26 <Ryan> Dome?
10:17:29 <LindaG> CraigC, i dont remember that one
10:18:18 <LindaG> Ryan, LindaG, I'm on it
10:18:31 <CraigC>
10:21:45 <LindaG> CraigC, huh I don't know how I missed that! Nice!
10:23:30 <LindaG> splashy bee
10:25:22 <CraigC> is this new cam better or worse than the last one?
10:25:36 <LindaG> far worse
10:26:01 <LindaG> horrible to drive, never does the same thing twice and occassionally decides to go for a spin around
10:26:23 <LindaG> The screen is very small, bad for the eyes
10:26:47 <LindaG> does have a nice zoom though
10:27:32 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Terrible would be a compliment for it
10:27:54 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, :) truer words were never spoken
10:28:37 <CraigC> sorry, that's a real shame
10:28:51 <LindaG> bee seems to be awake
10:28:55 <Greg (working)> HAHAHA - most positive part of this cam, has a nice zoom
10:29:07 <LindaG> Greg (working), :)
10:29:34 <Greg (working)> Looking at Lake, the last of the ice will be gone today
10:29:41 <LindaG> I can't possibly react as quickly as I did on old cam
10:30:13 <CraigC> I noticed the panning seems choppier
10:31:23 <LindaG> yeah the control to pan is way to sensitive so we inch our way across the screen with the mouse
10:32:17 <CraigC> can you still double click on cross hairs at a target destination?
10:32:35 <LindaG> no not really
10:32:41 <CraigC> damn
10:32:41 <Greg (working)> And then when you get the cam where you want it, ZOOM off it comes on its own
10:33:00 <Greg (working)> off it goes
10:33:07 <LindaG> it's really a case of cam wrangling each time lol
10:33:09 <CraigC> sheeesh
10:33:40 <CraigC> is Canon still the donor?
10:34:01 <LindaG> you can click on screen and get it to move but there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it
10:34:09 <LindaG> Bosch
10:34:22 <CraigC> hmmmm
10:34:39 <LindaG> dome ie
10:34:44 <CraigC> welll, all I can say about that, is that Bosch on Amazon is a great series :)
10:35:33 <LindaG> CraigC, :) it was good
10:36:34 <CraigC> LindaG, I started the sequel on that new free channel that has commercials
10:37:30 <LindaG> CraigC, :thumbsup:
10:37:53 <LindaG> the lighting on this is terrible looks better on my screen for once
10:38:37 <Ryan(lunch)> I can handle the chippy feed - the image quality drives me nuts
10:39:01 <LindaG> Ryan(lunch), yeah and the weird colors
10:39:21 <LindaG> I guess I've gotten used to it
10:39:31 <Ryan(lunch)> The colors and tonality are terrible.
10:39:45 <Ryan(lunch)> The first camera a decade and a half ago was better.
10:39:56 <CraigC> first thing that seemed different, even though my memory is pretty bad, is that people walking looked like stop-motion fast forward
10:40:17 <LindaG> CraigC, CraigC, It's true the people seem to move quickly
10:40:59 <CraigC> LindaG, so it wasn't like that with the prevous cam?
10:41:00 <LindaG> actually can see a bit of green in the meadow
10:41:36 <LindaG> CraigC, I don't think so
10:41:59 <LindaG> Sometimes I watch the people and think they can't possibly be walking that fast
10:42:20 <CraigC> I took a year break, and with covid fog, I don't trust my recollections a whole lot
10:42:23 <LindaG> Something weird about it
10:42:42 <LindaG> Hard for me to remember old cam really
10:43:03 <LindaG> I remember the controls though, they were great
10:43:40 <CraigC> a couple of weeks ago I almost bought a new lawn mower cuz I thought mine was broken, turned out I forgot since last year that I had to hold a bar up while starting it
10:44:45 <LindaG> CraigC, :(
10:45:06 <LindaG> It happens
10:45:23 <CraigC> and it wasn't like I had some "AHA" moment, I didn;t remember, at all
10:46:01 <CraigC> but I remember this happening LOL
10:46:19 <LindaG> CraigC, yeah i know the feeling
10:47:06 <CraigC> my mom is really going down that path.... she repeats stuff many times during phone convos.... but at least she has remembered the new stuff that she is repeating
10:48:08 <LindaG> I have a problem remembering where I put things and I don't eventually remember, it's like it never happened. scary
10:48:32 <CraigC> yeah
10:48:53 <LindaG> i used to be able to back track and remember, not any more
10:48:54 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I remember for 15 minutes or back 15 years. Anything in between is lost.
10:48:56 <CraigC> and forgetting words
10:49:10 <CraigC> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, exactly
10:49:14 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, lol
10:49:52 <LindaG> CraigC, what's weird is I know what the word is in my mind but when I go to say it, it's gone,
10:50:24 <CraigC> yep, quite often.... now it seems people are always finishing my sentences for me LOL
10:50:24 <LindaG> actually typing is easier
10:50:38 <CraigC> LindaG, yes, it is
10:50:42 <LindaG> CraigC, :)
10:51:02 <LindaG> and I was an English Major
10:51:32 <CraigC> has your spelling skills also gone?
10:51:36 <CraigC> have
10:51:39 <LindaG> so we adjust
10:52:03 <LindaG> CraigC, A bit but not too much
10:52:14 <CraigC> I laugh at myself when I have to google a word to make sure I am spelling it right, or even using the word I think means what I think it means
10:52:46 <LindaG> CraigC, :) I do that with wordle alot lol
10:52:47 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> And then "autocorrect" screws it up anyway.
10:52:57 <LindaG> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, lol how true
10:53:14 <CraigC> daisy
10:54:15 <CraigC> I feel like this is a good support group and now I don't feel so silly about my decrepitedness
10:54:52 <LindaG> CraigC, :)
10:56:25 <LindaG> dome ie
10:57:50 <LindaG> CraigC, I think some might be age on my part
10:59:49 <LindaG> setting are terrible today
11:01:36 <LindaG> could be another hour for grand
11:03:15 <Mike J> Just came back and I'm lost. What is going on behind the trees?
11:03:27 <LindaG> grotto
11:03:34 <Mike J> Thanks
11:03:58 <LindaG> :)
11:04:22 <Mike J> Should've known, but sometimes...well...
11:04:24 <LindaG> weather moving in
11:04:54 <LindaG> easy to do, didn't have anything to get your bearing with
11:05:18 <Mike J> I think my bearings wore out years ago
11:05:28 <CraigC> so are the clouds an illusion like the fast walking people? :)
11:06:02 <LindaG> I think so, the clouds move fast too
11:06:31 <LindaG> at least it seems like it to me
11:06:55 <LindaG> Maybe its the start and stop of it, seems like they are moving faster than they are
11:10:00 <LindaG> even the steam sort of marches along
11:11:53 <LindaG> OF
11:16:11 <LindaG> DOME IE
11:20:14 <Mike J> Everybody have fun out there. Time to take off.
11:21:48 <LindaG> Mike J, BYE
11:34:50 <Linda> Turban1?

11:41:57 <Mario> :D
11:44:14 <LindaG> 2nd?
11:45:13 <LindaG> 2nd
11:46:09 <LindaG> 2nds are cool
11:46:31 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> They are the best
12:01:10 <Linda> Dome ie
12:07:53 <LindaG> oops
12:19:30 <LindaG> Dunraven Pass form Tower Store to Canyon Village is now open for the season per YNP
12:19:35 <LindaG> Yay!
12:21:21 <Greg (working)> We are looking forward to driving the new road from Tower to Canyon.
12:21:54 <LindaG> riverside ie
12:22:33 <LindaG> hmmm maybe not
12:22:43 <KorbenC(22)> Oblong?
12:22:44 <KorbenC(22)> .
12:22:50 <LindaG> there it is
12:23:09 <KorbenC(22)> No Oblong, but it is thinking about it
12:27:34 <Linda> Dome ie
12:48:59 <Ryan> Just enjoyed a nice passing squall line.
12:49:19 <Linda> Ryan, by you?
12:49:30 <Linda> On its way to me
12:49:32 <Ryan> Dubious report of a tornado about 10 miles north of us.
12:49:45 <Ryan> Yeah, enjoy. It was far weaker here than the warning described.
12:49:45 <Linda> Ah
12:50:00 <Ryan> Visually impressive though
12:50:15 <Linda> Trying to catch daisy
12:53:47 <Ryan> Nice!
12:54:17 <Ryan> This was a high precip storm. I parked by an airport to watch it pass through and the rain coming up the runway at me was impressive
12:54:39 <Linda> That's fun
12:55:29 <KorbenC(22)> Ryan, where are you rn?
12:55:49 <Linda> OF
12:56:02 <Ryan> Edgewater, MD. Watched it from Lee Air Park. Tornado warning was for Columbia, MD
12:56:10 <Linda> Weeeee
12:56:25 <Linda> That's pretty
12:56:31 <KorbenC(22)> did you get a tornado? Oftentime warnings are not for a tornado on the ground
12:57:44 <Ryan> We did not. The warning was for radar indicated rotation only. I have not heard of a confirmation.
12:58:17 <Ryan> Last August we had a real one. Left an impressive damage path about 1/4mi from my house. You could hear the trees grinding and breaking from my porch
12:59:24 <KorbenC(22)> Ryan, that must have been "fun"
13:00:17 <KorbenC(22)> but then again, my version of fun should be disregarded.
13:00:17 <Linda> Hasn't gone yet
13:00:31 <Ryan> I found it humorous. Only because I got the warning for radar indicated rotations and was just saying to someone on the phone "Yeah, we get that pretty often."
13:00:37 <KorbenC(22)> I see Jim out there!
13:00:50 <Ryan> Checked the radar and thought "Holy shit that is a real tornado." Hook echo and everything.
13:01:08 <KorbenC(22)> Ryan, that is why we need a better "scale" for tornado warnings.
13:01:23 <Ryan> Opened my window and heard the roaring and grinding. By that point it was due east and moving north.
13:01:32 <KorbenC(22)> Yes, any radar indicated rotation deserves a big warning, some just more than others
13:01:57 <Ryan> I then told my friend "Weird, all the boats in the harbor are blaring their horns." "Ryan, friend, thats a tornado siren."
13:02:12 <KorbenC(22)> lol
13:02:14 <Ryan> The whole event was kind of humorous.
13:02:43 <Ryan> I've never heard a genuine tornado siren before. I thought it was a fire alarm or that the boats in the harbor were just doing some kind of event.
13:03:42 <KorbenC(22)> Ryan, best way to prevent a tornado from hitting your house, demoralize it. Insult it, and it will leave.
13:03:58 <Ryan>
13:04:11 <KorbenC(22)> Ryan, that now?
13:04:37 <Ryan> That was around 12:25 when the line moved in. That shelf was moving left to right (north) pretty quickly.
13:05:06 <Ryan> First time I have seen the shelf cloud moving perpendicular to the direction of the storm. Did not look like it was rotating though.
13:05:11 <Ryan> Looked like it was trying to.
13:05:41 <KorbenC(22)> That motion is a sign that the entire storm is probably rotating
13:06:15 <KorbenC(22)> If the shelf cloud moves perpendicular to the storm base, there is probably some strong horizontal shear or something
13:06:18 <Ryan> Or trying to. Radar signature looked more like a classic squall line.
13:06:55 <KorbenC(22)> *remembers that looking at radar is a good idea before talking about the weather
13:07:19 <Ryan> Oh yeah, really strong h-shear. But nothing rotating. That much was obvious. I suspect the tornado warnings were from that shear making temporary meso-cyclone-like structures.
13:07:50 <KorbenC(22)> You are speaking my language :)
13:08:14 <Greg (working)> Nice...
13:08:22 <KorbenC(22)> Greg (working), hi
13:08:41 <Ryan> I found a nice place to watch the storms move in though.
13:08:49 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Just keep the bad weather away from Colorado the last 3rd of August!
13:08:52 <Ryan> Watching the rain come up the runway was awesome.
13:08:56 <Linda> Daisy
13:09:28 <Ryan> We did have a legit tornado. Never heard a formal class for it, but based on what I saw it looked like an EF-1.
13:09:39 <KorbenC(22)> whe nwas this?
13:09:46 <Ryan> Big trees were snapped and broken (2-3ft diameter) and in some cases uprooted.
13:09:56 <Ryan> August 2021. Late August
13:10:04 <KorbenC(22)> :thumbsup:
13:10:24 <Ryan> Forget when exactly. But the track was from a mile west of Galesville into southern Annapolis. Damage path in the forest was several hundred feet across.
13:10:49 <Ryan> It was legit. I knew it, but when I saw the section of forest completely devastated it was still a visual shock.
13:10:56 <KorbenC(22)> (trying to guage how much research you have done): Do you understnad Skew T Paramaters, like CAPE, EHI, LI, LFC, LCL, and EL?
13:10:57 <LindaG> daisy jumped to 2hrs 16 min
13:11:19 <Ryan> Vaguely. CAPE, yes
13:11:23 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Korben broke it.
13:11:30 <Ryan>
13:11:33 <Ryan> Oh found a video
13:12:07 <Ryan> It was embedded in the remnants of Ida
13:12:32 <KorbenC(22)> Ryan, looking at all those factors, today doesn't look like a "good" day for severe weather
13:12:59 <Ryan> Nah. What we got was pretty weak. Visually impressive but just a lot of rain.
13:13:02 <Ryan> Not even windy
13:13:11 <Linda> Dome ie
13:13:16 <Ryan>
13:13:19 <KorbenC(22)> Good atmospheric setup, which is what is forcing the lines, but there are alot of inhibiting factors, low CAPE, low EHI, and high LI
13:13:33 <Ryan> Huh, guess that tornado made some headlines.
13:14:27 <KorbenC(22)> Ryan, some of those videos make it look like a strong one
13:15:04 <Ryan> EF2 apparently
13:15:15 <KorbenC(22)> :thumbsup:
13:15:28 <Ryan>
13:15:46 <Ryan> There. Yellow dot is my house. Purple outline is what the cell looked like when I saw it on radar.
13:16:00 <KorbenC(22)> Ryan, so, how far are you willing to travel for a tornado?
13:16:28 <Ryan> Fairly. But time and money are limited now.
13:17:21 <KorbenC(22)> If I am remebering climte stuff right, east coast has better sever tsm chance later in the year
13:17:28 <Ryan> I have a trip to the Bighorns in August and I plan to spend a week or so driving home. That's my only real opportunity. Will probably spend the next year just kind of watching remotely and learning what patterns to look for. Then go out next year.
13:18:14 <Ryan> Yeah, we get decent conditions in late summer it seems, maybe the fall. We get colliding air masses a lot. Especially during hurricane season.
13:19:00 <KorbenC(22)> and less water, high water content doesn't seem to work out for severe storm
13:20:40 <Ryan> Yeah, usually seems to be a thing associated with hurricanes for us.
13:20:54 <Ryan> I may try to go down to Florida later this year to see waterspouts and some orbital launches.
13:21:06 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> We have sand storms...
13:21:21 <LindaG> :-/
13:21:44 <KorbenC(22)> I don't like hoping for hurricanes, but I wish we had a good week or two with a bunch of them, I need something to take my mind away from my leg
13:22:24 <Ryan> I sat on Ocracoke Island last November for a noreaster.
13:22:47 <Ryan> I loved it. We were in a raised house for a week and had 70kt winds for 48 hrs. Flooding, huge surf....
13:22:47 <KorbenC(22)> Ryan, that must've been entertaing
13:22:57 <KorbenC(22)> is must've a real word or did I just make that up?
13:23:31 <Ryan> Went to the north end of the island and leaned into the wind. It was really, really, fun. Sand was being carried from Hatteras a mile north and blasting me in the face.
13:24:09 <KorbenC(22)> alright, time to go camping, cya all later
13:24:18 <Ryan> After it left we had two days of sunshine and 70 degrees before leaving. There were swells coming in at the perfect angle for surfing. Every fifteen minutes would be a series of breakers about 10-15ft tall. Sat and watched it for hours.
13:24:20 <Ryan> Have fun!
13:24:40 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Enjoy yourself
13:29:17 <LindaG> flags ARE OUT

17:08:10 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Where do you turn off I-15 to go to Evanston Greg?
17:09:01 <Greg šŸ¤ > We come up on 89 to 6 to 189 to 80 to Evanston. By pass I-15 and SLC
17:09:48 <Greg šŸ¤ > Love driving the 89 all the way from teh beggining to YNP
17:11:45 <ynpvisitor8> Greg šŸ¤ , from where?
17:11:56 <Greg šŸ¤ > Buckeye AZ
17:12:00 <CraigC> ok
17:13:44 <Greg šŸ¤ > From Evanston, top the 80 to 189 and 189 all the way into Jackson
17:13:52 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Not a bad idea. Nice area through there. My Mom lived in Elsinore (just south of Richfield) and we were all over US89 when I was a kid.
17:14:22 <Greg šŸ¤ > One of my favorite highways, old town USA
17:14:51 <CraigC> From Davis county as a kid, my dad would take us up Logan to Bear Lake through Star Valley to Jackson to YNP....long drive
17:15:25 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Big Rock Candy Mountain, fishing at Kingston Canyon, Bryce and Ren Canyon...
17:17:21 <Greg šŸ¤ > That is a nice ride as well.
17:18:08 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> fun train in Heber City.
17:19:30 <Greg šŸ¤ > We stayed in Heber City a few on the last trip, nice area.
17:22:12 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> My first train ride was in Sigurd at the sheetrock plant. Plant is still there but tracks are long gone.
17:56:01 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Fat doggies
17:56:49 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> And we have a bubbler.
18:08:21 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> OF static
18:08:43 <Greg šŸ¤ > Thanks, I had it listed for 1818
18:22:28 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> 105Ā° degrees here today. Glad we did the train with my brother last week when it was only 82Ā°.
18:24:17 <Greg šŸ¤ > 105 here today as well.
18:25:43 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Hasn't been bad this year. Last year it was in the 110s now and didn't drop until late September.
18:26:21 <Greg šŸ¤ > I agree with that, we are looking forward to the 50/60's for highs
18:27:21 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I have to go to Cartoon City in July. Should be a bit cooler there.
18:28:13 <Greg šŸ¤ > Is Graham in that crowd at Grand?
18:28:37 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Probably
18:28:55 <Greg šŸ¤ > Hi Graham

18:43:43 <Kitt> thanks again for the text Kevin
18:43:51 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> yw
18:43:57 <8> I bet there were some rainbows from the bw
18:44:44 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Bet that blur toward Grand is Graham
18:47:23 <L> Hello Lori hello
18:47:42 <Lori S> Hello Linda Hello
18:48:06 <L> :)
18:48:09 <Greg šŸ¤ > I think Graham was at bee
18:48:12 <L> Bee video below
18:48:43 <Lori S> L, I was watching. Just not under my name šŸ™‚
18:49:18 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> He was. I hate it when both go the same time.
18:49:42 <Lori S> L, Was it just me or was Vault doing regular steam bursts?
18:50:51 <Lori S> ...during :bee:
18:51:12 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I didn't notice.
18:52:20 <Lori S> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, as in you didnt see anything out of the ordinary or you werent looking
18:52:32 <Greg šŸ¤ > :daisy:
18:52:34 <Greg šŸ¤ > :daisy:
18:53:09 <L> Lori S, I didn't notice have to look a video
18:55:40 <Lori S 2> Economic is active?!
18:55:53 <L> Lori S, vault looked quite.steamy on video
18:56:59 <Lori S 2> oooh, just saw flag on Economic
18:57:40 <Lori S 2> L, Vault caught my eye and I watched it more than Bee
18:58:30 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Heinrich got him!
18:58:59 <Lori S 2> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, go figure
18:59:03 <L> Not one inusually.look at so I don't know if more steamy than usual
18:59:13 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> This is a case where it was an entry error. I would like to see yellow flags for those.
18:59:32 <Lori S 2> Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ, thats a great idea
18:59:39 <L> A warning fornthe upcoming warning :)
19:00:37 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I got flagged once for not putting in wc. Correct but if someone else flags it, the data goes away forever.
19:01:21 <L> Yeah they need something more informative
19:03:53 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> I also had one flagged because I entered it as ie and he said it had a start time of xxxx. Hello? ie means in eruption and will be placed as a secondary confirmation.
19:05:50 <Lori S 2> Seems to me flags were bring discussed last i
19:06:07 <Lori S 2> last i was here daily :)
19:14:37 <Kevin Lā„¢ šŸŒµ> Even have a few check boxes like 1. This geyser did not erupt, 2. Issue with entry (missing wc, ini on geysers like Daisy), 3. Incorrect entry (should be note, wrong geyser listed - Tardy instead of Sawmill), etc.
19:18:28 <linda> that's a good idea
19:19:28 <Lori S> linda, it eould save some typing. you and i would both benefit there. ;)
19:19:55 <Lori S> *would :lol:
19:23:27 <Greg šŸ¤ > I lost internet
19:25:41 <Greg šŸ¤ > Back
