00:17:15 <Dave from B> It looks like winter returned last night
00:17:51 <ynpvisitor61> Pretty clouds on VEC
00:18:54 <Dave from B> Yes it is; with a little sunshine peeking thru
00:27:49 <ynpvisitor3> OF 7:26

00:36:28 <Dave from B> Morning, CC
00:37:16 <CC> hey Dave
00:37:43 <CC> did you get snow in Billings
00:38:06 <Dave from B> No. We had a little rain (.04") but that was it
00:38:23 <Dave from B> Already 1.5" behind normal for the year
00:39:13 <Kevin L> Morning all. Lurking while I cook breakfast.
00:39:31 <CC> hey Kevin
00:39:51 <Dave from B> Morning, Kevin
00:43:05 <Ryan> morning
00:43:19 <Dave from B> Good Morning, Ryan
00:44:55 <Ryan> sitting here in trig, please tell me something is expected soon lol
00:46:19 <Dave from B> Has anyone seen anything from BH this morning. It may be due.
00:47:07 <Kevin L> Good shot in about a half hour. I have to leave then.
00:47:34 <Dave from B> Well, that was my job yesterday. Only fair that it's your turn today:)
00:47:54 <Kevin L> You did good Dave.
00:48:18 <Ryan> a morning BH would be nice :)
00:48:29 <Dave from B> Any more info on the mystery spikes from yesterday?
00:49:20 <ynpvisitor57> ?
00:50:10 <Dave from B> Some spikes were seen near Daisy yesterday afternoon. No one is sure what it was
00:50:18 <Dave from B> Hi, lc
00:50:37 <lc> morning Dave, everyone
00:50:52 <ynpvisitor7> Near Daisy, or could it have been from farther away?
00:50:53 <Ryan> hi lc
00:51:00 <lc> Splendid???
00:51:05 <Kevin L> Haven't heard anything. Will B was going to look in the area. Probably notheing, but it did keep us awake yesterday.
00:52:01 <lc> I missed that
00:52:13 <Kevin L> Don't think it was Splendid. LKooked like a few spikes. Happened a few times about a half hour apart.
00:52:47 <Ryan> bhi?
01:03:22 <Dave from B> Morning, vw!
01:03:22 <vw> Just got a text from Will B that he is in the Park, entering from West.
01:03:38 <CC> hi vw
01:03:42 <CC> nice to hear
01:03:43 <vw> Hey Dave! Looks a littel chilly in the basin this morning.
01:03:46 <vw> Hi CC!
01:04:23 <Dave from B> I had frost on the windshield this morning
01:05:18 <vw> Will and I have exchanged text numbers so hopefully we will hear from him periodically when he is in the Park.
01:05:59 <vw> Covered some seedlings last night based on the weather forecast. Glad we did!
01:06:28 <vw> Checking current conditions in the park. brb.
01:06:50 <Dave from B> I'm hoping for a dry day today. Since I was gone over the weekend, my lawn looks like a forest
01:08:33 <vw> Not bad at OF: at 0715 MDT 31F with 90% humidity for a dewpoint of 28. Winds 4mph out of the SE with gusts to 6.
01:14:08 <vw> Chores to do. BBL. If I hear from Will I will log back on here.
01:14:30 <CC> thank you
01:19:19 <Kevin L> Time for BH. I am heading out. bbl.
01:19:41 <Dave from B> Bye, Kevin
01:19:45 <CC> bye4
01:21:09 <CC> starting to snow again..just saw ssome flakes
01:27:25 <Kristine> Good morning
01:27:47 <CC> hi Kristine
01:27:51 <CC> all packed
01:29:43 <Kristine> Just about. I think for once we have more boxes than we do stuff!
01:33:40 <af> tid bit of snow
01:33:49 <Dave from B> Morning, kc and af
01:33:58 <Kristine> Morning kc and af
01:34:56 <kc (working)> mornin all
01:35:00 <af> mom says maybe we wont be staying at of the whole time or at all. she likes west for the amenities which is understandable
01:36:27 <Dave from B> Why not stay at the OF Inn or Snow Lodge iif she llikes amenities?
01:37:20 <af> like food at the roundup, restaraunts etc not the poty or that stuff
01:37:55 <Kristine> What sort of amenities is she wanting? About the only thing OF doesn't have is TV.
01:39:12 <af> she likes easy acess to the food and there is food in the food roundup in west but also eing right un toen
01:39:50 <af> easy dinners too in west woth all the rwstaraunts that are medium priced OF stuff is just a little exspensive
01:40:13 <Kristine> There are two sit down restaurants, one cafeteria, two fast food places, and two grill-type places and a small grocery store.
01:40:36 <af> and geysers which is fine for me
01:41:10 <af> i dunno west is cheaper from what ahe said
01:41:28 <af> maybe not the hotel but the sustaining
01:42:16 <af> ivam going out to school now haed to explain wel typing
01:42:46 <Kristine> I've not found much of a difference in food prices between OF and West, but maybe I don't pay so much attention.
01:42:52 <Kristine> Have a good day.
01:45:27 <Dave from B> Sometimes you never know with pricing. Ennis gas was 10 cents cheaper than Billings on Saturday
01:47:00 <Kristine> True. I've noticed several times where the gas in Ennis has been cheaper than Bozeman. Opening Weekend gas was cheaper in the park than in West or Gardiner.
01:51:40 <CC> OF 8:50
01:52:09 <Kristine> Beautiful.
01:53:36 <Kristine> Okay, gotta go. Later
01:53:37 <Dave from B> Winds aren't knocking geysers down as much today
01:54:22 <Dave from B> Bye, Kristine
01:54:50 <vw> Will is in the basin. Just reported OF as a long.
01:55:11 <Dave from B> Thanks, vw
02:00:52 <vw version 2.0> can't get into chat page on Chrome. :P
02:01:23 <vw version 2.0> Will: Sawmill 0854 ie. I will be posting times from Will on as they come in.

02:11:44 <Dave from B> Sounds like you're going to be busy today, vw!!
02:12:11 <vw> :)
02:12:40 <vw> Do need to get the garbage out, so will be away for a few now.
02:12:44 <Dave from B> I'm guessing Will is headed to Grand...should be in its window if it had a short interval last night
02:13:43 <vw> I sent him the few predictions that were up on when he said they were in the Park, so should know it is in its window.

04:48:56 <Kevin L> Any info from Daisy?
04:49:08 <vw> Looks like Steve E is also reporting and logging from the basin.
04:49:24 <vw> Will didn't include any Daisy area info.
04:50:01 <vw> Actually looks like Maureen is posting steve's observations.
04:50:51 <Kevin L> OF 1149
04:51:10 <vw> Turbans: 0910 ie, 0929, 0949, 1011, 1032, 1043, 1053, 1114, 1134.

04:57:50 <vw> did. Other text going out in a sec.
04:58:25 <vw> Dave here or should I send text?
04:59:16 <Kevin L> I rattled his cage.
04:59:25 <vw> I sent text with time as ie.
04:59:37 <Kevin L> Time should be ie
04:59:45 <vw> Dave will get a double rattle.
04:59:57 <vw> still updating
05:02:19 <Kevin L> Hi Bob. Just in time.
05:02:48 <Kevin L> This guy looks like he knows what is going on.
05:03:22 <BobInSLC> Hi, been lurking for a while
05:04:10 <vw> That is Will.
05:04:25 <Kevin L> He is fast!
05:04:45 <vw> Think was just over at Grand.
05:05:02 <vw> entering data...
05:05:06 <Kevin L> Hope he gets both.
05:07:26 <Kevin L> Looked like NG minor on static.
05:08:55 <vw> time on NG Kevin?
05:10:39 <Kevin L> I think it was 1205, but when I saw it, I jumped on the streaming to move it and forgot to check. Not sure is wasn't BHI steam.
05:11:46 <vw> I just told Will that NG might be doing minors, that we weren't sure.
05:12:30 <Kevin L> Good deal.
05:12:52 <Kevin L> I sure his atten is focused in a different direction right now.
05:14:05 <Kevin L> bh 1213
05:15:26 <vw> Looks like he is running again. Maybe Grand?
05:15:55 <vw> Yeap on Static 1215 ie? don't have big enough picture
05:16:01 <Kevin L> Looks like it could be on static.
05:16:27 <vw> Will getting his exercise in.
05:16:48 <Kevin L> I hate it when that happens.
05:26:11 <Kevin L> Looks like 1b
05:29:31 <Kevin L> Let's all head to West for some pizza.
05:50:36 <ynpvisitor40> I was hoping 'they' would deliver. g
05:51:04 <Kevin L> In 30 minutes or less?
05:54:11 <ynpvisitor40> Well, I think I would be able to let them have a couple of 'extra' minutes.
05:54:59 <Kevin L> As long as they are hot.
05:55:30 <ynpvisitor40> And the beer is cold. g
05:58:27 <ynpvisitor40> I should probably amend that to read 'And the drinks are cold'
05:58:57 <Kevin L> Could be root beer.
06:00:04 <ynpvisitor40> as long as the 'wash' the dirt off the roots.
06:00:09 <ynpvisitor40> Plume 12:59
06:00:35 <ynpvisitor40> I might have missed the start
06:01:33 <Kevin L> Sponge ie?
06:02:07 <ynpvisitor40> Looks like it.
06:02:47 <ynpvisitor40> Hold on, the WORLD is moving
06:03:50 <ynpvisitor40> Dramamine, Please!!!
06:06:29 <ynpvisitor91> hi
06:08:36 <ynpvisitor40> Hi 91
06:12:09 <Kristine> Afternoon all
06:14:20 <ynpvisitor40> Hi Kristine
06:14:47 <Kristine> Hi 40
06:18:13 <Kristine> Quiet around here
06:18:51 <ynpvisitor40> BH was 12:13
06:19:22 <Kristine> Figures :)
06:19:51 <ynpvisitor40> I missed it also, was moving locations and hadn't logged back on.
06:20:59 <Kristine> :(
06:22:02 <ynpvisitor40> Now it is time to get some
06:22:06 <ynpvisitor40> 'work
06:22:09 <ynpvisitor40> done
06:22:14 <ynpvisitor40> Later everyon
06:22:21 <ynpvisitor40> bye
06:22:34 <Kristine> Later 40. I need to get going too.
06:22:48 <Kevin L> OF 1322
06:24:20 <Kristine> Not bad. See ya tomorrow OF.
06:33:52 <vw> Will B: Grand 1213 T1c, Riverside 1214 ie
06:36:54 <Dave from B> Thanks for the texts Kevin and vw...I was the sacrifice two days in a row...It's somebody elses turn tomorrow:)
06:37:13 <vw> losing track of what I have shared!
06:37:21 <Kevin L> Bad timing a lot lately Dave.
06:37:24 <vw> Spasmodic 1216 ie, Sawmill 1224 ie
06:37:44 <Dave from B> Last month of school for a senior has lots of events.
06:37:46 <vw> Grotto 1236 ie and Oblong 1236 ie
06:38:14 <vw> Will had BH start at 1213
06:38:19 <Dave from B> Looks like I got here just in time for a nap
06:38:58 <Kevin L> Could have napped the last hour.
07:12:28 <Kevin L> Daisy was 1359
07:31:09 <Ryan> Hello
07:31:45 <Kevin L> hi
07:34:13 <Dave from B> Ok, Kevin. Can you make something erupt?
07:34:49 <Dave from B> Wow! Lots of entries in GT today.
07:34:59 <Kevin L> I did already. Can't help you weren't here.
07:35:16 <Dave from B> I deserved that one:)
07:35:38 <Kevin L> They all went at once.
07:37:35 <Dave from B> Grand electronic time has me confused. 11:57 interval. That's either a REALLY long single over an extremely short double. What do you think?
07:38:59 <Dave from B> 2:17 is short for Daisy also
07:39:01 <Kevin L> I hadn't noticed that. Could have thrown a long with all the shorts yesterday.
07:39:43 <Kevin L> I had a Daisy at 2h13m last week and one over 3 hours this week I believe.
07:43:12 <Kevin L> Plume ie 1442
07:56:21 <Kevin L> OF 1455
08:11:55 <Dave from B> Aurum in there somewhere Kevin?
08:12:46 <Kevin L> Not sue. OF keeps fogging it up
08:14:40 <Kevin L> Need hazard duty pay today. About to be bored to death.
08:15:18 <Dave from B> That's what happens when you make eveything erupt at once
08:15:40 <Dave from B> Seems our grizzly has also moved out of the area
08:16:01 <Kevin L> I will have to remember that. I wonder if Graham has the game to keep him alert.
08:18:47 <Dave from B> Should get another Grand tonight if intervals remain short
08:19:15 <Kevin L> Plume also due
08:22:40 <vw> k. wasn't sure.
08:22:48 <vw> haven't seen that happen in ages.
08:24:06 <Kevin L> I had a pop up, but that went away before I could see what it said.
08:25:04 <vw> outage didn't last long. Might want to send CC an email just to let her know it happened even though it came right back on of its own accord.
08:26:17 <Kevin L> Good idea.
08:27:35 <Dave from B> 19 different geysers on GT today and still no Aurum.
08:27:59 <Kevin L> Did you see that outage Dave?
08:30:18 <Dave from B> Not really. However, my streaming at work freezes about every 20-35 minutes. So, I may have missed it.
08:30:44 <Dave from B> My laptop streaming will go on for hours. I think I have too many windows open at work.
08:31:06 <Dave from B> Work is getting in the way of gazing again:)
08:31:31 <Kevin L> I hate it when that happens.
08:34:53 <Dave from B> Well, time to go home. My son's b-day today. He's 12. At our house you get to pick what you want for dinner.
08:35:14 <Kevin L> Fish?
08:35:22 <Dave from B> On your b-day. Steak and twice baked potatoes. He's finally graduated from hot dogs.
08:35:28 <Kevin L> Plume 1534
08:36:13 <Dave from B> Have a good night. Talk to you tomorrow.
08:36:28 <Kevin L> Bye.
08:55:59 <af> hi
08:56:11 <Kevin L> hi

08:58:38 <af> yay new sput!
09:05:07 <Graham> hello
09:05:14 <af> hi
09:05:16 <Kevin L> hi

09:05:37 <af> do yuo know how the tatcker ma doos work on th egeysers or you kevin?
09:05:51 <af> tracker thingy ma doos
09:06:28 <Kevin L> Not sure af
09:06:48 <Kevin L> Aurum is due. Perhaps an Anenome.
09:06:58 <Kevin L> Not much else.
09:07:13 <Kevin L> Daisy could be shortly also.
09:07:16 <Graham> Lion maybe?
09:07:18 <Graham> Grand?
09:07:30 <af> Grand has gone maybe 1900 or 2000
09:07:31 <Graham> I assume the early Grand was just wrong by a few hours
09:07:35 <Kevin L> No on Grand. Lion possibly.
09:08:10 <Kevin L> Possible long Grand interval today after the shorts.
09:08:23 <Kevin L> Could get a Castle.
09:08:24 <Graham> Castle 1607ie
09:08:26 <af> castle 1607 ie
09:10:50 <Kevin L> I will be lurking.
09:11:42 <af> I am going Graham sorry you will be all alone Wendsdays are my busy days
09:14:25 <Graham> not going to be alone
09:31:40 <Graham> Plume 1630
09:35:25 <Graham> i probably missed Dasiy
09:38:34 <Graham> OF 1637
09:52:51 <Graham> sawmill is off
10:26:27 <Graham> Plume 1725ie
10:27:54 <Graham> its time ....
10:30:21 <Jake> so I'm curious as to everyone's thoughts on the 0016 E Grand time
10:30:29 <LETSGOCAPS> W Triplet 1729ie
10:30:31 <Jake> that makes for a sub 4 hour interval
10:30:50 <LETSGOCAPS> I think its wrong by a few hours. double interval looks ok
10:31:27 <Jake>
10:31:42 <Kevin L> Hey Jake, did you know Sponge is not on the geyser list.
10:31:45 <Jake> ahhh, there's a comment on the E Castle entry
10:32:03 <Jake> Kevin L, I do now ;)
10:32:09 <Jake> I've been adding a few lately
10:33:27 <Kevin L> Went to add one and couldn't find it..
10:33:57 <LETSGOCAPS> ah i see that so you can "fix" them
10:34:49 <Jake> I fixed Grand and Castle E times....
10:34:56 <Jake> Grand looks "normal" now on intervals
10:34:59 <Jake> Castle seems funny
10:35:38 <Jake> but at least not a massive outlier
10:38:35 <LETSGOCAPS> yeah Castle intervals have been a bit wild
11:06:37 <af> caps game today
11:07:11 <af> weird castle time perhaps the 0017 ie one was a minor
11:08:42 <LETSGOCAPS> OF 1807
