01:35:09 <ynpvisitor58> vw here. Text with ? to Will regarding Riverside or F&M. A little early for F&M though.
01:35:25 <ynpvisitor58> Lion was 0834 ie
01:35:41 <ynpvisitor58> near end of eruption on Lion.
01:39:02 <ynpvisitor58> Will is in Boz. Will text Dave or Graham.
01:44:51 <vw - standby> That can't be Riverside downbasin. Graham had Riverside at 0639 ie. Could be F&M. Sweet!
01:45:01 <vw - standby> OF 0843 ie. Did not catch start.
01:45:18 <vw - standby> awaiting text from Graham or Dave.

01:52:35 <vw - standby> that last from Dave
01:56:20 <vw - standby> Graham said nobody was there for start of F&M. Probably nobody figured it would go this early.

02:06:09 <Dave from OF> see splashes in churn does that mean anything?
02:06:45 <af> is it actually ejecting water
02:07:05 <Dave from OF> no
02:07:17 <af> then i dont know not an eription
02:08:42 <vw - standby> Watch for Tardy or Spasmodic water to drop. Then you will know Churn could erupt. Water level in Churn usually full and bubbling.
02:09:33 <Dave from OF> spasmo is low
02:10:19 <Dave from OF> tardy is way down cant see watet
02:10:53 <af> wow that sounds like a perfect situation

03:52:56 <Will B> hi waver
03:55:00 <vw> Anybody know who we are looking at?
03:55:16 <af> no
03:55:34 <Kevin L> no clue
03:56:03 <vw> With that group of elk at Mammoth, good thing ranger there. Yearlings in there could make for some unhappy cows.
03:56:43 <Will B> is it G?
03:56:58 <vw> Nope. Not Graham.
03:58:24 <Will B> youtube doesnt like the length of my Artemisia video :(

04:43:07 <vw> OF 1142
04:50:06 <vw> I bet gazers headed down to check on Fountain and Great Fountain. Pretty quiet in the UGB.
04:53:00 <Dave from OF> daisy 1139

04:57:06 <Dave from OF> ......
04:57:10 <vw> Dave, did you see Grt Ftn or hear a call?
04:57:22 <Dave from OF> hi vw
04:57:31 <vw> Hi Dave. :)
04:57:48 <Dave from OF> heard call. most are at ftn
04:58:02 <vw> yeah, I kind of figured they would be down there.
04:59:05 <Dave from OF> going to leave Of after rivrrside. met lots of people. l
04:59:49 <vw> I am so glad you got meet lots of the gazer community. Very nice people.
05:00:07 <vw> Getting to see the 5.5h Grands is pretty cool too!
05:00:12 <Dave from OF> enjoyed talking to lc and nellie
05:00:36 <vw> :)
05:01:10 <Dave from OF> everyone still amazed with grand
05:01:43 <vw> That we are getting multiple bursts on short interval Grands is amazing.
05:03:38 <Dave from OF> ..
05:04:03 <vw> Has your family enjoyed their time at OF Dave? Hope your daughter got to take lots of notes!
05:04:07 <Dave from OF> wonder how long it will continue
05:04:37 <vw> When it comes to geysers... who knows!
05:04:44 <Dave from OF> my daughter is really hooked now :)
05:05:14 <vw> VERY nice! good job dad!
05:06:26 <Dave from OF> seems to be a shortage of young gazers
05:07:18 <vw> There used to be quite a few, but they all grew up.
05:08:08 <Dave from OF> they need to start having kids
05:08:11 <vw> Not too many younger families out there now, but hopefully that will change as some of those kids finish up college and start families.
05:12:17 <vw> guest posted Aurum on, 1157. VERY short interval for summer: 3h 12m
05:13:44 <Dave from OF> did not here on radio. i would be suspicious
05:14:10 <vw> Yeah, I am a little suspicious of that time.
05:14:11 <Dave from OF> but we are at riverside
05:14:34 <vw> Someone could see bubbling and think it is an eruption if they aren't familiar with it.
05:14:53 <Rich> G'Day Everyone

07:13:15 <vw> Thanks Rich. I have blue screen so missed it.
07:13:41 <Rich> I think it went before that, but was reading email.
07:13:46 <vw> wasn't paying attention and didn't open public stream. :P
07:13:55 <vw> ie is a good catch-all.

07:44:22 <vw> OF 1444
07:46:55 <kc (away)> aurum i think
07:47:02 <kc (away)> 1446ie
07:48:00 <vw> Hey kc.
07:48:21 <kcmule> hi vw. ill check cap in a mn
07:50:10 <vw> No problem. I kind of thought you might be gone today, so seeing you here is a nice occurrence!
07:51:36 <af> slow day?
07:51:57 <kcmule> ill be out 2 wks from today
07:52:25 <vw> k. By then everybody should be home from the park and we will have had some shorter shifts!
07:56:14 <af> split cone is erupting
07:58:48 <af> turban 1455 ns per graham
08:14:18 <kcmule> Grand 15:14
08:16:34 <vw - lurking> I think we are beyond the point where short intervals on Grand are an anomaly.
08:17:38 <vw - lurking> It will be interesting to see if the geyser 'experts' have anything to say about this latest development.
08:18:03 <kcmule> is this precedented?
08:19:50 <vw - lurking> T.Scott notes that in 2003 intervals were less than 7 hours for several weeks.
08:20:31 <vw - lurking> .
08:21:22 <vw - lurking> 5 1/2 is extraordinarily short.
08:25:30 <Rich> Hi from Mickey D's
08:25:50 <vw - lurking> Seeing another on cam today might be a stretch. I am thinking it is dark by 2100?
08:26:28 <Rich> Might on a static cam.
08:55:15 <Graham> hello did I miss anything
08:55:16 <kcmule> hi Graham
08:55:31 <kcmule> could ask u the same thing
08:56:09 <Graham> FM stsurprised us this am
08:58:55 <Rich> Grand at 1514
08:59:28 <kcmule> got my aurum confirmed, hadnt checked capture yet
08:59:29 <Rich> still intervalling around 5.5 hr.
09:03:59 <Graham> saw 5 grands in 24h
09:09:55 <kcmule> OF 16;09
09:14:11 <Graham> headed back out
09:14:33 <kcmule> bona fortuna
09:47:10 <kcmule> Daisy 16:46
09:52:09 <Rich> Looks like people indicator at BH
09:54:55 <kcmule> tad optimistic but who knows
09:54:56 <Michael> I'm not a bona fide expert, but as far as I know Grand hasn't done anything like this since I made its acquaintance 27 years ago.
09:56:21 <Michael> I wonder if it's had any episodes of sub-6 hour intervals before in recorded history...
09:56:48 <Rich> I think 27 years qualifies you as an expert. g
09:58:21 <kcmule> all i can do is cruise jake's db
09:59:05 <kcmule> i see plenty of 5h:xx here and there but never one ofter another after another
09:59:12 <Rich> GOSA stats are still available, just not recent ones.
09:59:48 <Michael> Will B added a lot of logbook data that predates the Sput, right?
10:00:34 <kcmule> i see 70-75
10:01:20 <kcmule> new data seems to start ~march 09
10:06:40 <Will B> I dont know when the sput started but i believe my data transfer started from the year 1970 and im currently at mid 1975
10:07:28 <Will B> double checked my data transfer started in 1970
10:14:32 <kcmule> Lion 17:13 static ini
10:15:57 <Rich> 8.5 hr linterval on Lion
10:22:45 <Michael> Sput started mid-to-late 1980s, about the same time GOSA incorporated.
10:27:01 <Michael> If news of Grand having regular 6-hour intervals came across the Sput or listserv from 1988 onward, I would probably remember falling off my chair from surprise.
10:33:46 <Will B> well i will keep plugging the data into GT as often as I can so keep watching for new data in GT
10:39:49 <kcmule> OF 17:39
10:57:00 <Michael> I certainly appreciate your effort. And LS for transcribing logbook data onto the GOSA site.
