01:34:50 <ynpvisitor81> Good Morning Dave and Kevin
01:40:59 <Dave from B> Turban? 741ie
01:42:03 <Dave from B> Ouch! Just noticed almost 9 hour interval on Grand yesterday.
01:49:25 <Dave from B> Something hsappening at Groblong...seems too small to be Grand
01:50:56 <Dave from B> My guess is this is Turban...741 could have been W Triplet
02:05:56 <ynpvisitor61> .
02:28:07 <Dave from B> OF 082753
02:32:17 <Dave from B> OF is a long
02:46:51 <ynpvisitor61> check Indy
02:47:36 <Kevin L> It does look ie
02:47:55 <Dave from B> .
02:48:03 <Dave from B> 847ie
02:48:18 <Dave from B> did it again
02:48:28 <ynpvisitor61> I had a stuck static frame at 645
02:48:34 <vw> good morning.
02:48:40 <vw> did alert go out?
02:48:59 <Dave from B> Good moring, vw. Don't believe so

02:49:20 <Kevin L> Sent
02:49:22 <Dave from B> Got it
02:49:37 <vw> good. thanks Kevin.
02:49:43 <vw> I just didn't know who was around.
02:49:45 <Kevin L> Just walked in from shop.
02:49:46 <ynpvisitor61> Finally!! woot
02:50:14 <Kevin L> Was hoping it would wait for my shift. Stocking up on NoDoz.
02:50:15 <Dave from B> And, we'll actually get to see some water
02:52:41 <lc> good morning
02:52:52 <Kevin L> hi lc
02:53:12 <Kevin L> Nice color this morning.
02:54:01 <Dave from B> Morning, lc....haven't "seen" you for awhile
02:54:22 <vw> Hi lc!
02:54:35 <lc> on the phone
02:55:35 <Kevin L> Well if you weren't out playing all the time Dave.
02:55:43 <Kevin L> Wow!
02:56:12 <vw> BH 0855 ns
02:56:17 <Dave from B> BH 855ie
02:56:24 <Dave from B> Thanks, vw
02:56:27 <vw> I wasn't watching for start, so not sure exactly when it got going.
02:56:38 <ynpvisitor61> is Lion back there too?
02:56:57 <Kevin L> Probably the most abrupt start I have ever seen on BH.
02:58:50 <ynpvisitor7> yeah, it's melting!!
02:59:09 <ynpvisitor81> Plume 0859ie
02:59:10 <vw> Pat got a 0854 start
02:59:16 <Dave from B> 7, you must be headed to OF this weekend
02:59:18 <ynpvisitor7> was that plume?
02:59:27 <vw> 61, I am not seeing Lion.
02:59:35 <ynpvisitor81> yes 0859ie
02:59:52 <ynpvisitor7> ????
02:59:58 <ynpvisitor61> optical illusion.:)
03:00:02 <ynpvisitor7> no Lion
03:00:17 <Kevin L> Short bh duration.
03:00:19 <vw> Don't think Plume either. Saw Plate steam, but nothing from Plume.
03:00:36 <ynpvisitor81> IT WAS PLUME
03:00:39 <Kevin L> Plume looked ie to me.
03:00:46 <ynpvisitor7> I think so too
03:00:48 <vw> okay! I must have looked away!
03:00:58 <ynpvisitor81> IE 0859
03:01:24 <ynpvisitor61> me too, static 858
03:01:46 <Kevin L> Probably the final burst.
03:02:08 <vw> that makes sense, cuz I didn't see anything after the question was posted.
03:02:19 <Will B> How much did i miss it by?
03:02:37 <Kevin L> >>> <<< That much!
03:03:01 <ynpvisitor61> lol
03:03:49 <Dave from B> :)
03:03:51 <Kevin L> My public is running about 18 seconds after LS so by the time anybody mentined Plume you would not have seen it vw.
03:03:54 <Will B> Well i guess i should pay attention to my professor now bbl
03:04:55 <vw> Thank you for clarification Kevin.
03:05:56 <ynpvisitor61> ..
03:06:44 <vw> Out of here. Have a great day all! For those on the east coast: Stay dry, stay safe.
03:07:40 <lc> Hey Dave, Kevin

04:49:06 <ynpvisitor61> thanks, just checking that too. :)
04:49:15 <ynpvisitor61> glad someone is paying more attn than I am.
04:50:12 <ynpvisitor61> Grand times are entered too, nice.
04:50:37 <Dave from B> No 15 minute sits at Grand anymore
04:51:12 <ynpvisitor61> no kidding, some joked that they saw more Grands than Turban this summer.
04:58:58 <Kevin L> Plume 1058ie
05:02:26 <ynpvisitor61> nice closed interval to start the day
05:02:51 <ynpvisitor61> if it continues- that is
05:03:00 <Kevin L> Almost missed it behind of steam
05:24:58 <Dave from B> We need Lion to wake up
05:25:31 <Kevin L> Pretty soon you may need me to wake up.
05:26:18 <ynpvisitor61> I'm good, two Plumes and a Beehive. Good luck with the rest of the day.
05:26:29 <Kevin L> bye
05:32:07 <Kevin L> of 1131
05:32:14 <ynpvisitor4> of 1131
05:43:45 <ynpvisitor53> .
06:02:20 <Dave from B> About time to wake up Kevin. Daisy should be in next half hour
06:03:10 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
06:04:03 <Kevin L> And then who knows about Grand?
06:07:04 <Dave from B> Grand 1400-1500
06:17:34 <Graham> hello all
06:18:06 <Kevin L> Hi. How's the weather?
06:18:07 <ynpvisitor4> hi
06:18:42 <Graham> wet and windy
06:18:54 <Graham> 30mph winds gusting to 40 already
06:19:19 <Graham> so far not too much flooding but the IT guys wanted to shut the computers down early
06:19:44 <Kevin L> Break time!
06:19:51 <Graham> weather supposed to get nasty over the next few hours
06:20:11 <Kevin L> Lion 1220 ie
06:20:20 <Graham> so I get to play this afternoon
06:20:48 <Graham> on;y 12000 power outages right now in Va
06:23:26 <Dave from B> Afternoon, Graham. i thought you might be on early today
06:24:50 <Graham> yeah hopefully i will have power and internet to stay on
06:24:54 <Dave from B> There you go, Kevin. Something to keep you awake
06:25:05 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
06:25:33 <Dave from B> I see NYC tunnels, subway system, Wall St, schools are all closed
06:26:04 <Graham> yep. Fed Govt, metro, all schools in the DC area too
06:26:37 <Dave from B> I hope things don't get as bad as they are thinking
06:27:27 <Graham> flooding could be bad in lower Manhattan
06:28:25 <Dave from B> I see where waters levels are already up to Irene levels there
06:32:38 <Kevin L> The only supplier of most most popular pen is closed for the next two days because of the Hurricane.
06:35:14 <Graham> does that mean you are closed Kevin?
06:36:09 <Kevin L> No, but it sure doesn't help. I needed to make an order today and these guys ship S L O W anyway.
06:36:50 <Dave from B> We ship seafood out of Boston on Tuesday.....not looking like that is going to happen
06:37:08 <Graham> where are they Kevin?
06:37:23 <Kevin L> Philadelphia
06:38:50 <Dave from B> Could just be a Day of Mourning in Philly for pathetic Eagles
06:41:13 <Graham> i was hoping Monday Night Football would be in Philly :)
06:49:49 <Graham> fluffy
06:49:56 <Graham> 1249
06:50:31 <Kevin L> On the early side. I just checked it.
06:51:31 <Kevin L> wind wsw14g23
07:07:49 <Kevin L> I think the wind is delaying Daisy a bit today.
07:08:28 <Graham> maybe Splendid will erupt because of the low pressuere in the hurricane?
07:08:56 <Kevin L> We can hope.
07:09:47 <Graham> hope for a dual?
07:10:04 <Graham> Daisy 1309
07:10:06 <Kevin L> Daisy 1310
07:10:20 <Kevin L> I'll buy 09
07:11:23 <Graham> Plume 11310ie
07:11:41 <Kevin L> Star Date?
07:11:52 <Graham> or1310ie
07:12:12 <steve> 'Lo all My car may be fixxed in the next hour or two (or three...) so I may be in the park tomorrow. A short visit is better tha none. At least there is no perfect storm in the park
07:13:40 <steve> So, does it look like Plume's intervals are about two hours?
07:14:11 <Graham> loks like it Steve
07:14:23 <steve> ty
07:14:42 <Graham> Sat it did go out to 3h
07:15:25 <Graham> yesterdays short was 1h49, check GT
07:15:31 <steve> I figure F & M will likely go today before I get to the park but maybe I can catch it before closing
07:15:41 <Graham> its more variable than it was before the dormancy
07:16:00 <Graham> Steve posted that it had not gone this morniong
07:16:05 <steve> I'll check to see it its still boiling between eruptions
07:16:23 <Graham> thanks, int erested in that
07:16:24 <steve> Plume that is
07:16:37 <Graham> we had BH bubblers just before BH today too, winters coming
07:17:14 <steve> Sigh, but the snow is gone again for a little bit. Maybe the bears will be sleeping
07:17:51 <Graham> not yet
07:18:39 <steve> So, just enough time for me to be a closing snack for some bruin
07:18:57 <Graham> yep, tasty morsel
07:19:09 <Dave from B> Just roll yourself in honey and bears will find you:)
07:19:12 <steve> Round and tender
07:19:55 <steve> Hmmm... maybe I shoould rethink those Honey Granola bars I have.
07:34:28 <Graham> Lion 1333
07:34:29 <Dave from B> Lion 1334ie
07:34:52 <vw> Hi again all. Heard we had an unexpected visitor.
07:35:05 <Graham> hello
07:35:07 <vw> Hi Graham. :)
07:35:13 <Graham> they kicked us out of work
07:35:32 <vw> Furlough expected to last through tomorrow at least?
07:35:55 <Graham> it guys are supposed to go in at 0700 to see if theres power and start things up again
07:36:48 <Graham> just means i have to make up more hours
07:36:56 <Graham> no free lunch for me
07:37:05 <vw> ahhh. That is assuming the roads are cleared enough to get to the office.
07:38:52 <Graham> yeah, i can get there on fairly major roads and if the feds have the day off I can get there easier :)
07:39:58 <Graham> hope Maureen appreciates the nice blue sky we ordered up for her
07:40:02 <vw> I am just glad you are home. Reports I heard earlier is that the storm will hit land a little earlier, albeit further north, than earlier predictions suggested.
07:40:34 <Graham> its windy and rainy, lots of noise. some small branches breaking off
07:40:51 <vw> Car parked away from trees?
07:40:56 <Graham> no widespread power outages, just about 12,000 in the state
07:41:24 <Graham> actually its close to some trees but I think they are healthy and strong
07:41:36 <ynpvisitor23> buenas
07:41:48 <ynpvisitor23> quien es chica en esta sala
07:42:07 <vw> wet ground and heavy winds can make that moot. Saturated ground could result in tree tipping over roots and all.
07:42:21 <Dave from B> Sorry, 23..not that kind of chat page
07:42:26 <vw> 23, non hablas espaniol.
07:42:38 <ynpvisitor23> holas
07:42:42 <vw> no chicas
07:42:42 <ynpvisitor23> quien es chica
07:43:56 <Dave from B> Hi, Will
07:44:03 <Will B> Hi
07:44:06 <vw> Hi Will.
07:44:28 <ynpvisitor23> holas spanish y chica
07:44:30 <ynpvisitor23> ***o
07:44:40 <vw> I need to go. Just stopped in to say hi, and to wish Graham good luck!
07:45:14 <Will B> Got in to contact with Ralph Taylor and he gave me the green light to transfer all his E times into GT
07:45:40 <Will B> Where is af when you need him
07:45:42 <ynpvisitor23> no hay
07:46:26 <Graham> has Jake got a way to upload them in bulk? should be a relatively easy SQL way to do it
07:47:12 <Graham> shouldn't need any data manipulation
07:47:28 <Will B> thats what i thought
07:49:26 <Will B> wow all the snow is gone that should make Maureen happy
07:52:28 <AG> Looks like Tardy's going behind the tree?
07:54:38 <Dave from B> AG, hard to say from my small wscreen
07:55:03 <AG> I think tardy was going but sawmill just started up as well.
07:55:37 <Graham> still tardy i think
07:55:59 <AG> Ill put it as ie.
07:56:35 <Graham> Turban?
07:57:20 <AG> looks like it.
07:59:58 <AG> Hoping for a Split Cone soon
08:00:43 <Graham> probably erupting now :)
08:01:03 <AG> I didn't see any water, just some minor puffs of steam.
08:02:55 <AG> There goes Bank.
08:02:59 <AG> I think.
08:11:02 <ynpvisitor79> will we get 3 pentas in 3 days
08:12:22 <AG> We've only gotten one penta in the last day, the one before that was 13 days ago.
08:12:37 <Graham> maybe Turban now?
08:13:20 <Graham> AG we had Penta on 27th and 28th
08:13:40 <ynpvisitor79> thank you
08:13:47 <AG> doh, I was just going off the intervals. sorry. my bad.
08:13:53 <AG> didn't even check the dates.
08:14:05 <AG> sorry 79
08:14:19 <ynpvisitor79> thats ok
08:27:00 <AG> Wow, OF's taking it's sweet time today.
08:27:28 <Dave from B> at 97 minutes
08:27:38 <Kevin L> Out of window now
08:28:58 <Graham> did we miss it?
08:29:28 <AG> Don't think so, it's still acting like preplay.
08:29:52 <Dave from B> Grand also due...hope OF goes soon
08:29:54 <Kevin L> no we didn't
08:30:40 <Graham> yeah Feds are out tomorrow, light traffic day :)
08:30:53 <Graham> and a jeans day
08:32:17 <AG> There we go.
08:32:21 <AG> 1432
08:32:48 <AG> That's a very steamy OF
08:32:53 <ynpvisitor79> very nice
08:33:44 <AG> At this point it always reminds me of Grotto Fountain.
08:36:22 <AG> Turban.
08:36:41 <Kevin L> Not a real long duration.
08:36:56 <AG> And still no split cone... :(
08:37:22 <Dave from B> ..
08:38:32 <Kevin L> VEC called it a long.
08:39:42 <AG> looks like we could get close to a 8 hour Grand interval.
08:39:58 <Graham> Lion time too
08:40:21 <Graham> here it is
08:40:30 <Graham> 1440ns
08:40:31 <AG> yep.
08:41:04 <Graham> zzzz
08:43:55 <AG> Rift or West Triplet
08:44:01 <AG> Looks like Rift.
08:52:33 <Graham> yeah
08:52:40 <AG> Grand 1452
08:52:45 <AG> tall!
08:53:33 <Graham> making everything erupt before my shift?
08:53:45 <Kevin L> Nice start, but a loose nut behind the controls.
09:00:07 <AG> 8 minutes.
09:01:13 <AG> yay!
09:01:30 <Dave from B> Nice #2
09:01:44 <AG> very nice.
09:02:06 <Graham> that one was pretty high
09:02:31 <AG> Made me realize that when Giant goes it's water column must reach above that ridgeline.
09:03:01 <AG> is that correct?
09:03:06 <Graham> its further down and away so I don't think you see it that high
09:04:40 <AG> That almost looked like a third, but there was no pause.
09:04:48 <AG> so I don't think so.
09:04:58 <Kevin L> 2 1/2?
09:05:07 <AG> haha, maybe.
09:05:27 <Dave from B> Kevin, any ideas for picking a loser this week. I need some help.
09:06:06 <Graham> probably a 2*
09:06:16 <Kevin L> I haven't seen the schedule yet.
09:06:42 <AG> Maybe we can catch a pluime.
09:06:53 <Dave from B> I was going to pick Arizona (at Green Bay) but Packers scared me last week
09:07:20 <Dave from B> Plume is due
09:07:27 <Kevin L> Aurum? Lion? Giantess?
09:07:56 <AG> Have we seen Depression recently?
09:08:37 <Kevin L> Only during political ads.
09:08:53 <Dave from B> :)
09:08:53 <AG> lol.
09:12:33 <AG> just passed 2 hours.
09:13:10 <Graham> 14,000 outages now, still not too bad
09:21:15 <Kevin L> New York looks ugly
09:21:43 <AG> steam from Plume.
09:21:59 <AG> Aurum!!!
09:22:02 <AG> ie 1522
09:22:03 <Will B> Aurtum
09:22:22 <Will B> oops squeezed a t in there
09:22:59 <Kevin L> Among the OF steam
09:23:39 <Kevin L> Was on the chatpage. By the time I looked at LS it was gone. :p
09:27:39 <AG> Plume's pushing a 2:20 interval.
09:29:02 <kc (working)> crane dangling from nyc skyscraper
09:29:06 <Dave from B> :(
09:30:05 <AG> bad news.
09:30:48 <Will B> some engineer did not do his homework
09:31:18 <Kevin L> I hate it when that happens.
09:31:54 <Kevin L> Again I am reminded why I live in a desert.
09:34:24 <Kevin L> Ugh. Just checked another company I have an order with in Maryland and they are closed until Wednesday also. :p
09:34:34 <Graham> i wonder if the price for the 90th floor penthouse has gone down?
09:35:19 <Kevin L> I sure hope nobody was on the street below that. Parts had to have fallen.
09:35:20 <Dave from B> Kevin...time to close and go to OF for closing wekend
09:36:07 <Will B> Lion roar
09:36:23 <AG> yep. maybe we'll get three in this series.
09:36:37 <AG> scratch that, 4

09:38:22 <Graham> minor
09:38:41 <AG> pooh pooh. what is happening to lion? :(
09:38:45 <Will B> Lion minor, Lion minor
09:39:03 <AG> looks like someone's watching for plume.
09:40:37 <AG> Plumes at 2 hours 30 minutes.
09:42:04 <Kevin L> Pretty interesting eruption on the sun. Scroll down to where it says "Slow Eruption"
09:42:05 <Kevin L>
09:43:33 <AG> Lion roar.
09:44:30 <Dave from B> I think Lion is ready for a nap
09:45:05 <AG> a "cat" nap? 8)
09:46:00 <Kevin L> OF preplay has been interesting. Been going on now for about 15 minutes.
09:50:04 <AG> OF 1550
09:57:54 <Graham> little bit of steam down basin ..
09:58:02 <Dave from B> Time to leave work. Have a good evening, everyone
09:58:09 <Graham> i guess its time for me now everything has erupted
09:58:13 <AG> bye Dave

10:22:21 <Will B> may be in F&M area
10:22:57 <Kevin L> Don't think that is the type of wildlife 76 was interested in.
10:23:10 <Graham> think its Grotto
10:23:12 <AG> guess not.
10:23:29 <Will B> Thats in the right place for it i think Grotto is further left
10:23:54 <AG> Haven't seen Anemone in a while. but haven't been able to cause OF steam.
10:24:09 <Will B> at least on Rich's location panaroma

12:09:19 <Graham> its Penta
12:09:46 <AG> hooray!
12:09:47 <Graham> took a while to see clear jets of water
12:09:55 <Graham> 3 days in a row
12:10:10 <Will B> So after talking with Ralph Taylor about transfering his data I asked him if there was anything I could do to help him and he said the whole program is in the hands of the NPS. So he put me into contact with the park geologist and is response is a bit troubling to me. Has there been any data pulled from the non big predicted ones this summer?
12:12:42 <cb> Gotta go! Birthday party for one of the gkids! Take care Graham!
12:12:54 <Will B> bye cb
12:12:57 <AG> by cb! have fun!
12:13:44 <Will B> AG did you just try and PM me because its a blank page>
12:13:54 <AG> yep
12:14:06 <Will B> works now
12:16:54 <Graham> i have no idea what has been downloaded or not Will
12:17:33 <Graham> Ralph wasn't able to do anything this year and they didn't take anyone on for summer cleanup and downloads
12:17:38 <Will B> Just curious iff all the loggers that were donated to the park from GOSA and Ralph are being used or neglected
12:17:51 <Will B> wow i cant spell right now
12:17:59 <Graham> I don't lnow if they are still out there or not
12:19:18 <Will B> well some of the rock strings are still there
12:19:28 <Graham> yep, you can see them
12:19:35 <AG> rock strings?
12:19:59 <Will B> anybody have a pic of Little Squirt?
12:20:26 <Will B> AG its what "hides" the data logger from view
12:20:44 <Will B> its a row of rocks
12:20:51 <AG> oh ok, gotcha.
12:21:25 <Will B> On Little Squirt and Aurum they are pretty ovbious
12:21:58 <AG> I never noticed. heh heh, so they must be doing their job, or I'm just clueless.
12:22:55 <Graham> thats because there isn't one on Anemone AG :)
12:23:01 <Will B>
12:23:16 <Will B> you can see it heading to the left in that pic
12:23:25 <Will B> oops right
12:23:27 <AG> that needs to change Graham. haha
12:24:23 <AG> something interesting I just noticed, having to do with concert eruptions of Anemone.
12:25:14 <AG> Big's runoff that doesn't drain back into the crater drains directly into Little Anemone. subsequently, all LA eruptions with BA are shorter. I wonder if there's a connection...
12:25:48 <Will B> 4 legs
12:27:40 <Graham> lots of Churn steam but I didnt see water
12:28:47 <Will B> .
12:29:34 <AG> alright, got to go home. see you all tomorrow. happy gazing.
12:29:47 <Graham> bye AG
12:30:30 <Will B> bye AG
12:31:43 <Graham> lots o steam again
12:33:05 <Graham> 101k now

12:34:12 <Will B> we will know if you get cut by the cam going to preset right?
12:35:15 <Graham> yeah but its getting close to quitting time anyway

12:40:58 <ynpvisitor54> company smart phone to the rescue
12:41:13 <ynpvisitor54> good luck
12:41:16 <Graham> yeah blackberry should work as long as the cell towers have power
12:41:29 <Graham> supposed to be easing off in the morning
12:41:49 <Graham> problem is the power company can't restore any power now, just doing emergency lines down work
12:42:13 <ynpvisitor54> it's really beyond what I can grasp

12:43:45 <ynpvisitor54> the aftermath will be rough for many too
12:43:45 <Graham> up to 3' of snow in the mtns
12:44:24 <Graham> neighborhoods with above ground lines will be out for a week
12:44:27 <ynpvisitor54> send the snow out West
