07:04:39 <ynpvisitor311> Kat, howdy :)
07:05:14 <Kat> ynpvisitor311, Howdy there!
07:06:11 <Kat> How are you this morning
07:06:50 <ynpvisitor311> Kat, good, we got some rain. you?
07:07:55 <Kat> Good - found out yesterday I need cataract surgery on both eyes! No rain here is still hot as you know what!
07:08:33 <ynpvisitor311> Kat, oh no... do yu have to do both at once, or separate?
07:10:11 <Kat> Separate - about 2 weeks apart. Really needs to be done because I have a hard time seeing when driving at night. I'll definitely still need my glasses but vision will be so much better
07:10:48 <Kat> Better to see geysers my friend! LOl
07:11:10 <ynpvisitor311> :thumbsup::thumbsup:
07:11:41 <Kat> They tell me colors will be brighter!
07:12:41 <ynpvisitor311> ever year my night vision gets a lot worse
07:14:31 <Kat> ynpvisitor311, I see cataract surgery in your future - it's one of the negatives of aging!
07:18:01 <Kat> That's a lot of people at OF this early
07:18:19 <Kat> OF
07:22:20 <Kat> Start was 0718
07:23:21 <Kat> tardy
07:28:33 <88> Being able to transport is great!! :)
07:33:04 <Kat> 88, isn't it? LOL
07:42:11 <Kat> Too much steam
08:48:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> FYI Kat, the worst thing about cataract surgery is the movie you watch about what they will do. I had it done and if they wouldn't have given me the happy pills I could have driven home. Nothing like it was in the 60's.
08:49:26 <Greg (working)> G'morning all, see ya at 1600hours, off to work I go.
08:49:44 <Kat> Greg (working), Have a good one!
08:49:50 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Have a good day
08:49:53 <linda> Morning all
08:50:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> hi
08:50:06 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi
08:50:12 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, thanks ! Hi Loinda
08:50:15 <Greg (working)> That Kat, and cataract surgery was a breeze.
08:50:21 <Kat> Linda*
08:50:21 <linda> Greg (working), Kat, hi
08:50:24 <Katie 🌻> Good morning, all
08:50:30 <linda> Katie 🌻, morning
08:50:35 <Greg (working)> Thanks Kat and hi Linda, Kevin
08:50:43 <linda> Greg (working), hi
08:50:47 <ynpvisitor311> linda, howdy
08:50:47 <Greg (working)> Hi Katie
08:50:53 <ynpvisitor311> Katie 🌻, howdy
08:50:54 <Kat> Wow - everyone shows up at the same time LOL
08:51:03 <linda> yeah eventually I'll need cataracts removed, happens to all of us I think
08:51:19 <linda> A flurry of camops :)
08:51:23 <Kat> linda, :thumbsup:
08:51:37 <ynpvisitor311> <--- ex-camop
08:51:43 <linda> but I don't want to watch a movie about it, just do it
08:51:55 <linda> ynpvisitor311, hi excamop
08:51:59 <Kat> linda, same here - I know what they do
08:52:21 <Kat> Hi ynpvisitor311,
08:52:31 <Greg (working)> I had to have it as I had a detached retinia, emergeny ssurgery, I do not wish that on anyone. I had to stay face down for two weeks
08:52:36 <ynpvisitor311> can you opt out of seeing the movie... tell them you can't see
08:52:54 <Kat> hahaha
08:53:20 <linda> Greg (working), oh no, they are concerned about one of my eyes getting detached retina, but lately it improved
08:53:37 <linda> ynpvisitor311, :D
08:54:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My Uncle just had that surgery Greg. He was not a happy camper.
08:54:36 <ynpvisitor311> I wonder how much a 2 week back massage would cost
08:56:56 <Kat> :daisy:
08:59:08 <Kat> OF
09:11:54 <Greg (working)> Detached retina surgery is not fun, my daughter came over and hooked a a few mirrors so that I watch tv, otherwise, thank goodness for tablets. face down means, you cannot move your head, they use a gas bubble to hold your repaired retina in place and if you move, so goes your retina. I could not fly or even drive to the mountains because of the bubble, elevation gain could pop it.
09:12:24 <Greg (working)> Linda listen the the drs, Kevin, hope your uncle recovered well.
09:12:37 <Kat> LC
09:33:50 <linda> Greg (working), that sounds horrible
09:34:31 <Kat> linda, how;s your SIL?
09:35:08 <Kat> R U still up North?
09:35:42 <linda> by the way I just looked and there is an OF CABIN available aug 29 to the 1st if someone needs one
09:35:56 <KorbenC> Morning all. He Kat, Linda, Greg
09:36:03 <Kat> KorbenC, Hi
09:36:11 <linda> Kat, she is making slow progress, yes I have another week up here :p
09:36:20 <Kat> linda, :thumbsup:
09:36:35 <Kat> Hopefully she's doing PT
09:36:54 <KorbenC> Something happened with your SIL Linda? Hopefully everything is alright.
09:36:56 <linda> Kat, yes pt person coming and she is on phone arranging pt on the outside
09:37:11 <Kat> Good
09:37:17 <linda> KorbenC, she had knee replacement, thank you
09:37:28 <linda> 5 days in sept on that OF cabin
09:37:33 <KorbenC> Wishing her a speedy recovery!
09:37:39 <linda> KorbenC, thx
09:38:02 <linda> and it has a bathroom :)
09:38:16 <Kat> LC
09:38:38 <KorbenC> linda, dont underestiamte how nice a bathroom is!
09:38:39 <linda> a robust LC :)
09:39:08 <linda> KorbenC, I'm from jersey a bathroom is a must ;)
09:39:17 <Kat> linda, hahaha
09:39:29 <KorbenC> Hopefully you get one of the cabins closest to OF
09:39:50 <linda> KorbenC, yeah I should call them and see if they can move me close
09:40:06 <Kat> linda, :thumbsup:
09:40:09 <KorbenC> what kind of cabin, 1 double?
09:41:09 <linda> KorbenC, yes that is available now. I got 3 days of that aug 29-1st and then a bigger one which was the original reservation
09:41:34 <KorbenC> Nice
09:41:49 <linda> this one was 30 dollars more than the bigger one I booked in march
09:41:57 <linda> :p
09:42:09 <KorbenC> I enjoyed 109 and 108 for the 1 double, for some reason they had more open space than any other of the cabins I stayed in :)
09:43:09 <linda> KorbenC, guess it wasn't filled with beds. the other i have is a double and a single, but still cheaper than the double now, so I won't try to rebook
09:43:40 <KorbenC> Yeah, they raised their prices by I think $30 or $50 a night after the floods
09:43:53 <linda> KorbenC, yeah
09:47:17 <Kat> 221.00 a night is a bit much! Getting ridiculous
09:48:20 <Kat> I'll camp!!
09:50:02 <KorbenC> Would be cheaper to camp in the back of your car, buy a little generator for electricity, and shower at the OF lodge, than it is for one night there.
09:50:25 <Kat> KorbenC, that's exactly what I do!
09:50:25 <Kevin L™ 🌵> One reason I am not going this year. Trains are cheaper.
09:51:32 <Kat> With a senior discount I think I pay about 15.00 a night!
09:52:06 <Kat> They really are pricing people out of the park - it's sad
09:52:28 <Kevin L™ 🌵> After 4 years in the Army I have no desire to camp
09:52:36 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, LOL
09:53:03 <Kat> I enjoy it - May can be a little cold but I keep warm
09:54:16 <Kevin L™ 🌵> When we were working in a tent we would put a Sterno stove under the chair to keep warm
09:54:52 <Kat> -20 degree sleeping bag is the answer
09:55:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Not when you are directing artillery fire!
09:55:45 <ynpvisitor311> I've reached a stage where I can't stand not having a shower every day
09:56:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My idea of roughing it is a room with slow internet.
09:56:34 <Kat> Guess you're never going on a long distance backpacking trip then :)
09:56:43 <Kat> Kevin L™ 🌵, lol
09:56:57 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Past that stage now.
09:57:05 <ynpvisitor311> Kat, I would swim in a lake if there were no people around to traumatize
09:57:24 <Kat> ynpvisitor311, Haha, I'm with ya!
09:58:25 <ynpvisitor311> or even just warming some water and a wash rag would be enough
09:59:14 <ynpvisitor311> I wish Madison would add shower facilities
09:59:22 <Kat> ynpvisitor311, I like those bath wipes you can buy - they use them in hospitals , work great!
09:59:27 <ynpvisitor311> even if you had to pay for them
09:59:33 <Kat> ynpvisitor311, that would be good
09:59:55 <ynpvisitor311> I would sleep in the back of my truck, or even the back seat
10:00:14 <ynpvisitor311> I have taken many naps in my back seat at Norris
10:00:44 <Kat> ynpvisitor311, I tried the back seat of my pathfinder - not enough room - but with the seats down that back is perfect!
10:01:45 <Kat> I have a 3 seat Pathfinder plenty big for this short girl
10:01:54 <ynpvisitor311> when I had the Grand Cherokee, there wasn't enough space in the seats of the back
10:01:58 <ynpvisitor311> or
10:04:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Perry Mason music and a slow logon.
10:04:34 <Kat> No problem - have a good rive!
10:04:57 <Kat> drive*
10:05:07 <Kat> bbs
10:06:42 <linda> Dont know how many more times I can spend a lot of time at YNP so I'm going for it
10:10:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I know what you mean. I really can't get much farther than the hill anymore. Just not worth it and cabin prices are the deal breaker.
10:11:26 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, yeah it will cost me a fortune, need a car, but I'll worry about the money later :lol:
10:14:25 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, after they cancelled roosevelt it was either get rooms elsewhere or change flight. It will cost me $300 to change flight. :p
10:14:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> This train trip is about the same way. Probably the last time I will get to do one this good.
10:14:58 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, where are you going?
10:15:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> $300 would pay for about half the room.
10:15:41 <linda> hmmmm
10:16:04 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We are going to Colorado & New Mexico. Going to ride 5 different trains and come home through Monument Valley.
10:16:28 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, wow that sounds great
10:16:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ugh. Perry Mason channel died.
10:16:49 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, oh no not Perry Mason!
10:18:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> 8 shows on that channel and Perry Mason is the only one down. :p
10:19:11 <linda> :(
10:32:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> of
10:50:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Daisy twirl.
10:55:17 <linda> bee is looking steamy
11:00:22 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lion is looking good too.
11:01:18 <ynpvisitor311> preyt pretty good
11:02:21 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Cam is being a pain today
11:03:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lion is pretty
11:04:22 <linda> Kevin L™ 🌵, did it's own thing a few times last night
11:25:24 <ynpvisitor311> looks like Russ in the black shirt
11:25:58 <ynpvisitor311> probably Ben next to him
11:26:41 <KorbenC> Yes
12:00:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> of
12:18:18 <Betty> hi all
12:18:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Hi
12:25:57 <5> Lion ie
12:26:58 <Betty> hi Kevin
12:27:24 <5> big crowd for it
12:28:38 <linda> Betty, hi
12:34:15 <Betty> hi Linda
12:48:54 <Kat (phone)> Hi all, I hear thunder, praying for some rain here!!
12:49:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It has been rainy here. Lake Mead went up 3 inches!
12:50:07 <Kat (phone)> Wow!
12:50:34 <Kat (phone)> Haven't had any rain here for some time, everything is so dry
12:52:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Daisy
12:54:41 <Kat1> I'm going to go outside and dance in the rain of it happens 🤣
12:55:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Don't bring in a hurricane.
12:55:29 <Kat1> No pics will be taken:)
12:55:48 <5> hopefully no fires from the lightning
12:55:58 <Kat1> Kevin L™ 🌵, Ssshhhh! Bite your tongue!
12:56:12 <Kat1> 5, I know
12:57:41 <KorbenC> Kevin, the atlantic hurricane season has been dead calm this year, so far
12:57:44 <5> I saw photos of what rain did in Death Valley, cars covered in mud
12:58:05 <Kat1> Awww, that would stink
12:58:33 <Kat1> KorbenC, and I want it to stay that way
12:59:21 <KorbenC> Kat1, me too. Its gonna pick up tho, I still think there is going to be a big hurricane this year
12:59:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> People underestimate what rain in the desert can do.
12:59:39 <Kat1> I watch the tropics all the time, needto knows for planning.
13:00:12 <KorbenC> Hopefully it changes but way out on the horizon, a couple of weeks out, I see a highway for hurricane formation
13:00:13 <Kat1> I didn't even pack my emergency box this year, hope I don't need to.
13:00:15 <KorbenC> Turban 1258
13:00:26 <KorbenC> Kat, hopefully you don't have any storms this year
13:00:47 <Kat1> KorbenC, that's my hope Korben
13:01:15 <5> NPS changed back to 90 minute window. They are really all over the place with changing the Grand prediction lately
13:01:35 <5> 90 minutes on both sides that is, the other day it was + or - 45
13:01:35 <Kat1> It is tiresome packing up and moving out. Sadly I'm in a flood zone and about a mile from intracoastal water
13:02:05 <Kevin L™ 🌵> At least hurricanes you can see coming for a few days. The ones I hate are the rain wrapped night tornadoes.
13:02:46 <Kat1> Kevin L™ 🌵, I agree, we know when it's coming and we don't usually stay or ride it out!
13:04:10 <KorbenC> 5, I saw that :) They dont know what is oging on
13:04:22 <KorbenC> Time to get out the detergent maybe. Worked before.
13:11:02 <Kat1> It's raining and yes I danced! LOL
13:11:53 <Kat1> Temp just dropped almost 10 degrees
13:11:56 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Will it bring out the alligators?
13:12:11 <Kat1> No, they are every present.
13:12:36 <Betty> hi Kat1, KorbenC
13:12:50 <Kat1> Hi Betty!
13:13:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Our lizards are smaller
13:14:13 <KorbenC> Hi Betty
13:14:39 <Kat1> We have them too, last year I had a 6 foot. Iguana in my yard. Very odd since they are not this far north. I think someone's let for out
13:15:01 <Kat1> pet*
13:15:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They are all over my yard but only about 3 inches long.
13:16:02 <KorbenC> 6 foot Iguana? That is a big lizard
13:16:25 <Kat1> Press range from 1 inch babies to about 5 inches
13:16:43 <Kat1> Ours*
13:17:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Lizards I like. Snakes have a short lifespan around me.
13:17:49 <KorbenC> Colorado lizards are maybe 2in long, and hard to be found :( Do you ahve pet Iguanas then Kat?
13:17:53 <Kat1> KorbenC, it was, and not very nice either, he climbed a5 ft fence into a tree, I never saw him again . imagine mtg surprise when I was in the yard, turned around and saw it!
13:18:14 <KorbenC> T 1317
13:18:27 <KorbenC> Kat, Godzilla!
13:18:28 <Kat1> Korben, no, I have a sweet cat! Lol
13:18:38 <KorbenC> lol
13:19:11 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bobcats aren't my favorite either.
13:19:39 <KorbenC> Mountain Lion are annoying, at least here, they sit up in trees and watch you
13:20:19 <Kat1> We have bobcat too, racoons, possum and armadillos
13:20:32 <Kevin L™ 🌵> And coyotes are a pain. Mountain Lions are just plain evil. They kill pets and people.
13:21:07 <Kat1> I like the possums, they eat ticks!
13:21:38 <KorbenC> We have moose and bears that hang around my neighborhood, I would rather run into both of them than a mountain Lion
13:22:01 <Kat1> Agreed Korben
13:22:04 <KorbenC> Kat, possums look creepy tho, like little rats with claws
13:22:22 <KorbenC> Do you have many tick problems in Florida?
13:22:44 <Kat1> They really are cure! Especially the babies, they only show their teeth when they feel threatened
13:22:58 <Kat1> Cute*
13:23:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> My son had some skunk bait to attract bobcats he was trying to trap so they wouldn't eat my chickens. When I had my cataracts done the lid came off the bottle in his truck bed. You walked out of the Dr office and WHEW!
13:23:23 <Kat1> KorbenC, Oh yes on the ticks
13:23:25 <KorbenC> agree to disagree then. Racoons are cute tho, and funny to watch. :)
13:24:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They can be really destructive.
13:24:25 <Kat1> Racoons are cute but destructive
13:24:51 <Betty> riverside
13:24:51 <Kat1> There's a family living just a few houses down from me.
13:24:59 <3> Riverside
13:26:17 <Kat1> I see their little footprints on my deck sometimes
13:26:37 <Kat1> Ok, need to go, have a good one all
13:26:59 <5> bye, hope it keeps raining
13:27:00 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bye
13:27:09 <KorbenC> Kat1, cya
13:30:10 <KorbenC> So, what are the odds Grand goes on the 1335 Turban?
13:37:15 <KorbenC> T 1334 no Grand
13:40:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No cam controls either.
13:42:40 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Ugh. Finally
13:44:01 <MT> woah big one
13:50:06 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Soggy looking clouds.
13:50:36 <5> it's been a while since it rained in the basin it seems
14:08:54 <KorbenC> GRANDDDD
14:09:13 <KorbenC> Not super tall, T--
14:10:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Looks windy
14:17:34 <KorbenC> Hopefully a second
14:17:36 <KorbenC> 2nd
14:18:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wind sure cut that one down.
14:18:44 <5> HK would call that a Sawmill 2nd
14:18:57 <Betty> hahaha
14:19:52 <KorbenC> Guessing T2Q
14:20:11 <KorbenC> looks more like a C tho
14:20:17 <KorbenC> oh wow
14:20:23 <KorbenC> Something big Behind grotto!
14:20:46 <KorbenC> just one big jet of something
14:24:42 <KorbenC> OBLOING
14:24:43 <KorbenC> .
14:24:43 <KorbenC> ..
14:24:46 <KorbenC> OBLONG
14:27:21 <Kat> yabol
14:27:29 <Kat> Nice Oblong
14:27:47 <KorbenC> I think that massive jet might have been spa
14:30:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Spa would be in front of Grotto.
14:30:43 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, ?
14:31:06 <KorbenC> I put Spa (?) 1420 ie wc in, I lined up the trees I could use for reference on google earth, right in line with spa
14:31:18 <KorbenC> But if that was spa, that would have been the most massive insane burst ever, lol
14:32:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> If you are looking at Grotto from the bike path Spa is to the right across the BW to Giant.
14:33:39 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, look again
14:33:56 <KorbenC> Spa is down past Grotto Fountain, it ur standing next to Grotto it is towards Riverside
14:36:29 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You are right. I guess it has been a long time since I made it that far. That could have been Spa. It does a tall shot quickly that scares the heck out of you.
14:37:14 <KorbenC> exactly, esspecialy when the tall shot is coming towards you
14:38:37 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I remember it going higher than the trees.
14:39:06 <KorbenC> It can for sure, but normally not much taller than the trees
14:39:40 <KorbenC> That was probably twice the height of the tree nearby that we can see from the cam, which is maybe 15-20ft over the tree next to Spa. Wish someone was down there
14:40:12 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The best one I remember was the elk. It smelled like soup all over the area.
14:40:36 <KorbenC> but then again, that down basin area is so disorienting from the cam who really knows
14:41:03 <KorbenC> Kevin, I heard about that, and the time where it just did a big blue bubble and sent a wall of water onto a bunch of gazers
14:46:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It was pretty funny. Tourists were walking down the path commenting about the fine smelling soup until they got there.
14:46:56 <KorbenC> "dinner"
14:47:09 <KorbenC> Fresh mineral water soup!
14:53:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That was a fun area. I miss it.
14:54:31 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Penta minor
14:54:34 <KorbenC> It was better before they put in all of the new tire chip stuff
14:55:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> We used to be able to walk down to Artemisia and watch it erupt from ground level.
15:02:44 <Betty> :lion:
15:25:25 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
15:25:38 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Night
15:36:00 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, can we zoom out, I cant see if that is a really big storm behind the hill
15:36:17 <KorbenC> Wait nvm, I have static :P Yesm big storm.
15:57:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> You ready?
15:57:46 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Sure thing.
15:57:56 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Did you leave me anything?
15:58:24 <KorbenC> Beehive!
15:58:34 <KorbenC> and Lion
15:58:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Released. Good shot at BH in the next couple hours
15:58:51 <KorbenC> Lion 1558
15:59:08 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :lion:
15:59:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Keep an eye on NG
15:59:59 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :thumbsup:
16:00:31 <KorbenC> Interesting interval for sure Kevin, 56min
16:00:59 <KorbenC> Greg, I dont think you have to worry about Giantess doing something today, been windy all day long.
16:01:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Pretty strong for 4th in a series.
16:01:38 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :thumbsup:
16:01:48 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Didn't see any boils today
16:02:22 <KorbenC> Kinda a fast end
16:11:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Chief 4 hasn't made it to Gallup yet running 8h19m late Greg.
16:13:30 <Greg 🤠 on ca> ugh, glad I am not waiting for it
16:14:27 <KorbenC> Sounds alot like Grand these days, darn Dave!
16:15:42 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Or riding on it. Someone got off it at Flagstaff and didn't get back in time. She chased it all the way down the platform.
16:16:26 <Greg 🤠 on ca> haha, with the new cam, they could follow her. Must have been on a smoke break.
16:23:07 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Whatever it was I bet she is still unhappy.
16:27:45 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It is still on the replay on the ptz cam at timestamp 1120.
16:30:48 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Kool, I will check that out.
16:32:27 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Train just made Gallup. Uber could have got here there on time.
16:35:51 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Tonight's Chief has the Pepsi can on it.
16:36:20 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Right, but if it is that late, I will be in bed. haha
16:36:58 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :daisy:
16:42:12 <KorbenC> I see 2 packs at Bee, but where oh where did the gazers go?
16:42:49 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Depression?
16:44:02 <linda> i guess screen is dirty but looks like a small tornado on the right there lol
16:44:33 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Above OF?
16:46:14 <linda> linda probably saw a smudge or a bug
16:46:25 <KorbenC> :p
16:46:56 <linda> KorbenC, KorbenC, at16:43 on right of old faithful
16:47:14 <linda> KorbenC, over by the boardwalk
16:47:48 <KorbenC> :thumbsup: Looks like a cloud or a little spinup or something
16:48:25 <linda> KorbenC, It does but when he moved cam it moved off to right so something one lens I think
16:48:35 <linda> *on
16:48:52 <KorbenC> :thumbsup:
17:04:31 <KorbenC> Another Lion, that makes 6 this series
17:05:04 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Grrrr of
17:05:57 <KorbenC> That last surge might cause a delay
17:09:30 <Greg 🤠 on ca> OF time
17:10:25 <KorbenC> absolute steambomb on static
17:10:30 <linda> wow that's a weather change
17:11:47 <KorbenC> and a short
17:12:11 <kiawe (at work)> Aloha all!
17:12:20 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Howdy
17:12:21 <linda> Greg 🤠 on cam, hi
17:12:36 <KorbenC> our 4 favorite geyser gazers are back at Beehive :)
17:12:59 <Greg 🤠 on ca> And who are your favortites
17:13:19 <KorbenC> those 4!
17:13:33 <KorbenC> They are waiting for Beehive, thus they are the best :D Of in basin gazers that is
17:13:59 <Greg 🤠 on ca> I am glad you stated that, "in basin"
17:14:27 <KorbenC> I have to, cause when one of those gazers leaves the park and another one is sitting at Beehive, they are my new favorite.
17:15:34 <KorbenC> I do wonder if the rain will still significantly effect Beehive, last few times it has rained Beehive has just shut down, for hours.
17:16:40 <KorbenC> Greg, can you add the "short" classification to your OF entry? The GT prediction still thinks it was a long
17:17:41 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :thumbsup:
17:18:04 <KorbenC> :)
17:27:18 <kiawe (at work)> It looks cool and fruity in yellowstone today.
17:27:59 <KorbenC> If Beehive goes there will be alot of steam
17:28:41 <kiawe (at work)> The cam was completely spattered with droplets; there was a wet gust just before OF went off.
17:29:24 <kiawe (at work)> *thumps camera on side because it is blurry*
17:32:54 <kiawe (at work)> I have to head out and do paperwork. Bureaucracy, ugh!
17:33:11 <Greg 🤠 on ca> later
17:45:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Well one thing for sure, we can't get a worse cam.
17:45:33 <Greg 🤠 on ca> HAHA
17:55:28 <Greg 🤠 on ca> of window in 7 mins
17:56:46 <KorbenC> bahumbug, maybe we could keep BH in view until OF starts?
17:57:07 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Yup
18:08:02 <5> looks like BH watch is on
18:08:28 <KorbenC> I think the rain might have slowed it down a little bit
18:08:43 <5> I just noticed it rained
18:10:33 <KorbenC> Greg 🤠 on cam, thank you :)
18:10:38 <5> VEC must have thought it was a medium, the last OF, to have 1821 as their prediction
18:11:19 <KorbenC> It was a long short
18:11:33 <5> another words, medium?
18:11:47 <KorbenC> No
18:12:04 <KorbenC> Its already surging rn, so a short, but a longer hsort
18:12:06 <KorbenC> OF 1811
18:12:07 <Greg 🤠 on ca> OF time
18:12:35 <5> GT for the win on the prediction
18:13:29 <linda> nice on static
18:14:04 <5> quite the steam curtain today
18:14:21 <KorbenC> we are getting steam blasted now
18:14:34 <KorbenC> this would be a great on to watch from the top of the inn
18:16:22 <KorbenC> I think that was a long right?
18:17:06 <Greg 🤠 on ca> That is what I would have put, makes up the last one
18:17:37 <KorbenC> I put long on it when I entered it right after the start, forgot ot see if I was correct. Thx Greg
18:19:25 <KorbenC> Artemesia
18:20:55 <KorbenC> Artemisia
18:20:57 <KorbenC> *
18:22:47 <KorbenC> Greg, North Goggle went into an extended fill starting at 1804, be sure to keep an eye on it probably about an hour from now
18:27:11 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :thumbsup:
18:35:15 <KorbenC> NG dropped after 18min, may have an eruption chance after Daisy
18:35:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> :)
18:37:38 <KorbenC> would be funny if Daisy threw a super hsort interval and we are watching it post eruptive
18:49:26 <KorbenC> Oblong?
18:50:40 <KorbenC> I do think Oblong is erupting
18:52:13 <42> Sure looks like the right place and sustained steam to be Oblong….
18:52:34 <KorbenC> Yea, it was on and off for a few min, but ie now for sure
18:53:08 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It looks like it to me
18:53:53 <KorbenC> Ive seen a couple tall jets of water. I am starting to think we actually missed Daisy and that it went sub 1hr 42min
18:55:48 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :daisy:
18:56:22 <KorbenC> later
18:56:56 <Greg 🤠 on ca> See ya
18:57:09 <KorbenC> meant to say later for daisy :)
19:00:08 <KorbenC> Dont think North Goggles or Lion anytime soon
19:24:06 <KorbenC> Beehive might be waiting for tommorow, it needs a good reset after that rain
19:24:47 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Yup, Linda or Kevin will have the pleasure of bee on Wednesday
19:27:14 <KorbenC> Cool to know that the weather is still very impactful, and that at 1900 unless it is ready to go, it still dies
19:27:30 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :thumbsup:
19:31:05 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Going to leave the cam on OF for a few.
20:08:22 <Greg 🤠 on ca> OF time
20:09:56 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Rainbow
20:12:03 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Nice sunset
20:13:28 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Yes it is, ours tonight is not too bad
20:14:27 <KorbenC> Riverside ie
20:15:34 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Wow. Chief 4 is now 10h24m late. Pepsi can in over 2 hours late on its way to LA.
20:16:54 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Stil shows Flag as 1046pm, ya sure
20:18:47 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Normal time for #3 into Flagstaff is 2032 so that fits.
20:18:57 <KorbenC> Kevin L™ 🌵, how many miles was it traveling from the last stop (I am assuming that they made the arrival predict on the last stop?)
20:19:28 <KorbenC> I am trying to figure out whether or not I could have driven/walked there in time
20:19:36 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It updates about every 10 minutes.
20:20:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I am not sure the mileage. Railroad mile differ greatly from road miles.
20:21:09 <KorbenC> how long would it have taken to drive a car to where it is going?
20:21:44 <Kevin L™ 🌵> From where? It left Chicago yesterday.
20:21:53 <KorbenC> Yeah, IDK from where :P
20:22:27 <KorbenC> So I guess from Chicago, to wherever it is going
20:25:43 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It left Chicago at 1420 local time. Showing arrival at LA tomorrow at 2041 local time but I bet it is later.
20:26:19 <KorbenC> Ouch, are there people waiting for it in LA?
20:26:58 <Greg 🤠 on ca> 0841am it shows to LAX
20:27:04 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :castle:
20:27:18 <Kevin L™ 🌵> That is the end. It will be turned and it will be the #4 from LA to Chicago the next day.
20:27:30 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :thumbsup:
20:29:14 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Right. I think I am about ready for bed since I saw the am but put in 2041. Of course this is Amtrak so I could be right...
20:30:30 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Night Kevin
20:31:15 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I will be up a bit. Have to watch crab fishing.
20:31:44 <Greg 🤠 on ca> haha
20:32:08 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Looks a :daisy:
20:39:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Sounds like there was a trespasser incident with #4 (aka train hit a person).
20:39:34 <Greg 🤠 on ca> bummer
20:39:59 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think the lady that missed the train in Flagstaff is the lucky one.
20:40:42 <Greg 🤠 on ca> yes and I missed the vid, by the time I could look, it was gone
20:41:24 <Kevin L™ 🌵> It should still be there.
20:42:42 <Greg 🤠 on ca> found it
20:44:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> There were 2 more that barely made it.
20:45:42 <Greg 🤠 on ca> You can hear her say, OH MY GOD and off it goes
20:47:20 <Kevin L™ 🌵> They always say don't get far from the train. You get the All Aboard and the train honks. You would think that would be a clue. Looks like they released it. It is now moving again.
20:48:02 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Thanks good, so what did the lady do?
20:49:23 <Kevin L™ 🌵> She can get a room and wait until the train tomorrow or catch a bus.
20:50:13 <Greg 🤠 on ca> OR maybe get someone to drive her to Winslow really fast
20:50:17 <Kevin L™ 🌵> The saying is the train didn't leave her, she left the train.
20:50:55 <Kevin L™ 🌵> She probably could have done that if she got a ride quickly.
20:51:52 <Kevin L™ 🌵> I think it would be tough to get Uber to take you that far and if they did they would want to be paid for both ways.
20:51:54 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Feel sorry for her family. Her phone may have been on the train and she only took 1 cig with her.
20:53:19 <Kevin L™ 🌵> No luggage either. If she left her purse in a compartment she would be in serious trouble.
20:53:33 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Right
20:55:17 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :daisy:
21:15:46 <Greg 🤠 on ca> OF
21:15:58 <Greg 🤠 on ca> nice splash
21:18:16 <KorbenC> GRANNNND
21:18:35 <Greg 🤠 on ca> :grand:
21:18:54 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Of course
21:28:21 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Vin Scully has passed away, he was 94
21:28:58 <Kevin L™ 🌵> Bummer
21:31:56 <Greg 🤠 on ca> Darkness has fallen over that magical place we call Yellowstone, thanks for tagging along and have a great evening.
21:32:22 <Greg 🤠> The cam controls have been released, keep smiling
