22:53:02 <ynpvisitor77> hi
00:17:54 <ynpvisitor2> Ooh...almost #1 again
00:19:24 <Dave from B> Morning, vw!
00:20:15 <vw> Good morning Dave!
00:20:41 <vw> OF 0719
00:20:56 <vw> Good timing, although still kind of hard to see.
00:31:22 <vw> Something in the Grand area.
00:32:31 <Dave from B> Seems like it should have gone an hour ago or so...wonder if it is Turban, Vent or W. Triplet?
00:33:10 <vw> Clarity on the stream isn't good enough to really say what we are seeing.
00:34:42 <Dave from B> Morning, CC
00:34:51 <vw> Hi CC!
00:34:52 <CC> Good morning Dave and VW
00:34:58 <Dave from B> Now is when we start dreaming about nice clear spring/summer days
00:35:08 <CC> livescope doesn't look to bad this morning
00:35:27 <vw> LS has been good: no blue, no lines.
00:35:35 <CC> excellent
00:35:55 <CC> lloks psretty clear in the basin as well
00:36:07 <CC> nice Lion
00:36:15 <vw> Lion 0735
00:37:30 <vw> Acting like an initital.
00:37:42 <vw> *initial*
00:37:42 <CC> timing
00:41:25 <CC> 6 minutes now
00:41:32 <Dave from B> Length seems to indicate initial
00:41:59 <vw> Yeap. Nice. Gives us something to watch this morning. :)
00:42:21 <Dave from B> For a couple hours anyway...series seem to be shorter of late
00:42:45 <CC> have to go out..have a nice day
00:42:55 <vw> You too CC.
00:43:08 <Dave from B> bye, CC
00:49:01 <vw> We aren't getting any crossover postings from GT to
01:00:28 <ynpvisitor24> ..
01:05:14 <ynpvisitor24> .
01:11:10 <vw> I am trying to post times on, but having problems. Page seems to be getting caught in a loop when I try to submit the report.
01:11:34 <vw> May have to go back to manually figuring predictions. Oh NOOOOooooo!
01:12:34 <vw> Okay... that was freakish. Couldn't figure out where that 'steam' was coming from! Bobcat on walkway....
01:14:20 <Dave from B> afk...bobcat?
01:14:34 <vw> Mechanical kind
01:14:50 <vw> Sweeping snow off walkway and kicking a bunch up.
01:14:55 <Dave from B> gotcha....thought it was a bobcat escaping from Bozeman
01:15:31 <vw> Wouldn't that be something to see on the cam! Would qualify as a rare sighting I think.
01:16:00 <Dave from B> It would be right up there with Graham's moose
01:16:01 <vw> Ground fog taking away our down basin view. Watch GH for a while I guess.
01:17:04 <ynpvisitor24> .
01:17:27 <vw> I gave up on Any help with predictions today would be great!
01:17:51 <vw> Kevin having trouble getting online, so you all might be stuck with just me today.
01:18:58 <Dave from B> vw, we need to get that guy a new computer
01:19:22 <vw> Is it his computer, or his internet connection that is a problem?
01:19:45 <Dave from B> That's right...has has said he's had issues with connection before
01:19:55 <Dave from B> first has = he
01:20:09 <Dave from B> say that real fast 3 times
01:20:29 <vw> But as I know, sometimes what appears to be a connection/wifi problem can be a computer problem.
01:20:34 <vw> funny Dave!
01:21:33 <vw> I need to take a break. Back in a few minutes.
01:22:28 <Dave from B> No one will ever confuse me for a english professor
01:40:31 <vw> OF due, as is Lion. May have to keep an sharp eye on Lion area to see any eruption through OF steam.
01:45:05 <Dave from B> ..
01:46:04 <vw> Lion 0745
01:46:10 <vw> oops... 0845
01:46:53 <vw> Possible Plume 0846 ie ?
01:47:09 <vw> Steam seems to be coming from a different source than OF
01:48:15 <Dave from B> I look away for a minute and everything erupts
01:48:33 <vw> I do think Plume is erupting now.
01:51:18 <Dave from B> Change in wind direction from yesterday
01:51:28 <Dave from B> Good day for Aurum
01:51:55 <vw> it would be! and with Kevin out of commission, we are likely to see a couple. :(
01:53:54 <ynpvisitor24> .
01:55:45 <Hawkeye> good morning
01:55:54 <vw> Good morning.
01:55:57 <Dave from B> Morning, Hawkeye
01:56:29 <Hawkeye> I see I just missed a couple
01:56:38 <vw> OF 0856
01:57:11 <Hawkeye> or not :)
01:57:26 <Hawkeye> not much definition between steam and the sky this morning
01:58:10 <vw> Certainly isn't getting better as the morning progresses.
01:58:49 <vw> I think that one will qualify as a short...
01:59:41 <vw> Hard to be sure there is no more water, but seemed to fade pretty fast.
01:59:55 <Hawkeye> doesn't look like it will clear up like yesterday
02:00:16 <Hawkeye> it's always interesting to see the weather from yesterday in the park comes here the next day
02:00:39 <Hawkeye> except for the snow
02:01:55 <vw> Still no good view down basin.
02:08:44 <vw> wind direction swirling.
02:09:26 <Dave from B> Weird how fast wind direction changed
02:11:15 <vw> Trying to post times on Still no luck.
02:12:33 <Dave from B> Now wind has changed again
02:13:59 <vw> Snow swirling too
02:20:20 <Hawkeye> the park needs to send some of that swirling snow this way, I think we might have a non white christmas
02:20:53 <vw> I think what little we have here in Billings will be long gone by Christmas too.
02:22:13 <Dave from B> vw, I haven't seen the extended forecast for moisture coming?
02:22:57 <vw> I don't think much of a chance. Everything seems to be moving north of in the current weather patterns.
02:24:04 <vw> Seems like moisture is stalling on the western slopes of the Rockies and then moving in an arc north and around us Dave.
02:25:58 <Dave from B> Thanks, vw...Fro the next 3 weeks it's so busy at work I just hold on and hope to survive until January. Lacking on news right now.
02:26:53 <vw> That is kind of a good new/bad news thing Dave. $$ is good, but breathing is kind of necessary too.
02:35:23 <vw> Something going on in Grand area. What escapes me though.
02:35:36 <vw> Watching for water/spikes, but haven't seen any.
02:36:27 <ynpvisitor82> Sidewalk has been plowed on VEC cam.
02:37:07 <Dave from B> Oblong?
02:37:09 <vw> Maintenance has been busy this morning.
02:37:39 <Dave from B> nope
02:37:50 <vw> Not sure Dave. Have been watching for a few minutes. View keeps getting obscured though, so hard to keep track. Don't think Oblong though.
02:41:49 <vw> Need more coffee. brb
02:48:03 <vw> Good morning kc!
02:51:23 <vw> OF 0950
02:59:58 <vw> BSOD on operator cam. Was too good to last.
03:02:16 <Dave from B> Was that Pump looking big?
03:03:02 <ynpvisitor82> From what I saw it was.
03:14:40 <vw> view is pretty bad right now. Good time to give my eyes a little break.
03:22:43 <ynpvisitor24> .
03:36:41 <kc (working)> mornin
03:37:11 <Hawkeye> morning
03:44:10 <vw> Hey kc.
03:45:24 <vw> Just reading articles about wolf kills around the Park. Seems no matter what the issue is, these days there isn't a lot of middle ground.
03:47:15 <ynpvisitor82> I found a photo of the sign in front of Soda Butte, posted to FB Yellowstone CamChat.
03:47:33 <Dave from B> vw, I agree. For that reason, unfortunately, these issues are NEVER going to be resolved.
03:47:38 <Dave from B> That's a depressing fact
03:47:59 <vw> Agree Dave.
03:48:28 <vw> Discussion yesterday about Soda Butte? Fav winter lunch time spot.
03:49:17 <vw> Always fun to stop there because other cars think you are stopped because you 'saw something.' Always disappoint them when I hold up my lunch!
03:50:10 <Dave from B> :)
03:50:21 <ynpvisitor82> Swallow nests are interesting.
03:51:08 <vw> The Butte is a good place for birds. Southern exposure gets good sunlight and so stays warmish as well as has some protection from winds.
03:51:12 <Dave from B> Just as in the geyser basins...if you pick a spot in YNP and just watch you will catch much more.
03:51:53 <Dave from B> And, that is why I'm sad when people never leave their car
03:52:05 <vw> It actually is a good place for spotting: usually see some bison. Sheep not unusual too.
03:52:34 <Dave from B> There was a wolf den across the road near there about 5 years ago also
03:52:51 <vw> Actually not supposed to walk on the Butte, and area surrounding it is pretty marshy in the warmer months.
03:53:40 <vw> I haven't been as lucky spotting wolves in that area as others have. Might be the time of day I aim to be in the area?
03:54:17 <Dave from B> Almost have to be staying at Roosevelt or Cooke City/Silver Gate for best chances
03:55:08 <vw> I usually have luck either just around the corner near Buffalo Ranch, or like you say up near Roosevelt.
03:56:07 <ynpvisitor82> Clean out of Penta's 6th vent.
03:58:20 <vw> ? Pretty old stuff there Rich. 2007 was the most current date I saw.
03:58:27 <vw> People on bw on OF static cam.
03:58:34 <ynpvisitor24> that wolf news seems to be everywhere today
03:58:57 <ynpvisitor82> I always thought Penta only had 5 vents.
03:59:11 <ynpvisitor82> Never read anything mentioning a 6th.
03:59:13 <vw> Yeap, wolf news took a couple of days to hit the airwaves. MT's action yesterday to implement buffer zones finally kicked it off.
04:00:16 <vw> Actually a pretty brave thing the MT Commission did to implement that zone. MT residents generally opposed it.
04:01:22 <vw> aaahhh. Gotcha Rich! I am not too familiar with Penta, so interesting fact.
04:04:10 <ynpvisitor82> Bruce and I stood and watch Penta, I couldn't find 5 vents, let alone 6. g
04:05:28 <vw> Isn't Penta one of the area's that has shifting vents? Little ones that clog up and new ones open?
04:06:25 <vw> If a vent is aimed away from the bw, a visitor may never see it, Have to look for other evidence: steam/water. If conditions aren't right, or a feature is small, you might miss it.
04:08:07 <Dave from B> Probably easier to see in winter...might be a question for our hardy winter visitor.
04:08:55 <ynpvisitor82> I want to spend 'watch' time at Penta.
04:09:11 <ynpvisitor82> And at least a full day at Pump.
04:17:42 <vw> I think time in the Penta area could be interesting Rich, but Pump? Any note would read, 'water, water, water, water, etc. etc etc."
04:18:03 <ynpvisitor82> But the water does different things
04:18:18 <vw> um.. okay! :D
04:18:58 <Dave from B> Kevin can probably tell you a few things about Pump....his bench isn't too far from it
04:18:59 <ynpvisitor82> vertical eruption, jet toward Overlook, fill to overflow, empty, partial fill
04:19:53 <ynpvisitor82> Last time I sat and watched Pump I didn't have enough categories. I didn't indicate in my notes whether it was a verticcal or side jet.
04:20:10 <vw> Just different strokes. :)
04:20:53 <ynpvisitor82> Also be interesting to sit on the 'back' side of OF and watch the side vent activity.
04:22:34 <vw> Steam from BH increasing
04:23:59 <vw> Lion seems to be done for now. Nothing for several hours now. :(
04:24:59 <Dave from B> Any word on how Kevin's computer issues are going?
04:25:36 <vw> I haven't heard back from him for a while, so I am guessing not doing so good.
04:26:00 <Dave from B> We should maybe send him the computer smashing you tube video?
04:26:14 <vw> but he wouldn't have any way to view it!
04:26:33 <Dave from B> :D
04:26:38 <Dave from B> Duh!
04:26:42 <vw> Kind of like when my mom
04:26:44 <vw> oops.
04:27:10 <vw> mom's computer crashed a few days ago. Go to help screen and it recommends you visit a website. HELLO!!!!
04:27:34 <Dave from B> :)
04:30:10 <vw> OF 1129
04:40:12 <vw> BSOD for me so I am moving cam in hopes of getting a picture. Please bear with me.
04:41:49 <vw> Next move is going to be big swing. :P
04:42:09 <vw> Bison near sign by Inn.
04:43:11 <vw> No luck. Response times and zoom capabilities will be limited until it comes back.
04:54:58 <vw> Picture back. Hopefully it will hold.
05:04:11 <vw> skier on VEC cam
05:09:54 <Dave from B> vw, where did you see the skier?
05:10:12 <vw> VEC static cam. Still there.
05:10:30 <Dave from B> Thanks...had that window covered up
05:11:18 <vw> As employees are coming back into the basin this week for opening Saturday, we will see more and more people on the bw.
05:13:10 <ynpvisitor82> I did a capture.
05:28:01 <ynpvisitor88> .
05:35:03 <vw> Single bison on VEC static cam. Kind of cool.
05:37:39 <Dave from B> Having trouble finding something to eat
05:38:30 <vw> That is what those big heads are good at: digging for food.
05:40:15 <ynpvisitor82> vid running on streaming cam
05:40:36 <ynpvisitor88> .
05:41:15 <vw> Company coming
05:56:55 <vw> OF 1256 ns
06:01:12 <vw> I need to take a long break and get some other things done. Leaving cam on a wide view for now.
06:02:00 <Dave from B> sEE YA LATER, VW
06:05:12 <ynpvisitor82> ooops i didn't say G'Day Everyone, today.
06:05:26 <ynpvisitor82> Consider it said. g
06:05:55 <Dave from B> :)
06:06:14 <ynpvisitor82> Hi Dave from B
06:06:51 <Dave from B> Howdy, Rich
06:10:01 <ynpvisitor82> g
06:30:00 <vw> Heard from Kevin. Still no internet. May be off for a couple of days while he checks into a different ISP. Feel for the guy.
06:30:43 <Dave from B> That's no good. I've been meaning to send him a text to harass him...but haven't had a chance to
06:37:14 <vw> A day of being disconnected, he might appreciate even some harrassing!
06:39:09 <Dave from B> Harassment is on the way
06:40:41 <Hawkeye> visibility getting worse?
06:41:14 <ynpvisitor82> Bison 1238 mst vid cap posted to FB Yellowstone CamChat
06:41:16 <Dave from B> Sure looks like it
06:45:02 <vw> Sorry, sending email to ask for some help covering cam through this evening.
06:45:17 <vw> Yes... visibility heading south. Literally and figuratively.
06:46:02 <Dave from B> Phone-a-graham?
06:46:17 <vw> I like that Dave! :D
06:48:27 <vw> Castle 1347 ie
06:48:51 <vw> kc is working too hard these days. :(
06:49:16 <Dave from B> ..
06:49:55 <vw> Hi Will!
06:50:02 <vw> You ready to be done with this term?
06:50:57 <Will B> YES!!!!!!
06:51:06 <vw> :)
06:52:46 <vw> Just a few more days and they you get a nice long break.
06:52:48 <Dave from B> Hi, Will
06:53:05 <vw> this is not good. Losing view on GH too.
06:53:20 <Dave from B> Hopefully in about 5-10 years, I can help you out in the cam driving
06:54:48 <vw> yeah, you have to pay for those college educations first Dave.
06:55:33 <Dave from B> Pick lucky numbers and I'll start driving next week!
06:56:03 <vw> yeah, that just doesn't seem like much of a retirement plan to me Dave.... :D
06:56:20 <Dave from B> :D :D
07:01:58 <Dave from B> Not sure I want to win the lottery after what happened to someone from Florida
07:03:14 <vw> ??
07:03:55 <Dave from B> Not sure when it happened...but winner was befriended and ended up in the person's backyard...6' under. Person got life
07:04:12 <vw> wow!
07:05:35 <Dave from B> was in the Gazette either today or yesterday, I believe
07:09:02 <Will B> i think castle is a major
07:09:45 <vw> Yeap, sure looks like a steam phase to me.
07:19:41 <Dave from B> I'm getting that feeling...we are going to get a BH before dark
07:19:41 <vw> Getting a ton of steam from Scissors Springs today.
07:26:47 <vw> OF 1425
07:40:37 <Will B> hey we can see grand again
07:41:01 <vw> Weeelllll.... Okay. Kind of. :D

07:58:15 <vw> Falling asleep here!
07:58:46 <ynpvisitor88> .
08:10:42 <ynpvisitor34> Does anyone know a good site to find stuff about the recent killing of that wolf. I have to do an editorial and some good sites would help.
08:11:37 <vw> I got a bunch of hits today on it just from my google alert. My google alert is set for Yellowstone.
08:12:05 <vw> Articles from around the country today.
08:14:04 <vw> Give me you email in pm, and I can forward you the alert.
08:14:53 <ynpvisitor34>
08:15:43 <vw> sent
08:16:35 <ynpvisitor34> Thank you. Did you guys ever figure out the mystery pic. My guess is pump.
08:17:46 <vw> I know there was a lot of discussion about it, but I don't know what the consensus was.
08:18:46 <Will B> Topaz
08:21:12 <Dave from B> Traffic jam
08:22:04 <vw> Certainly a convention of uprights!
08:23:17 <ynpvisitor57> I am totally jealous

08:28:00 <vw> Lots of gray overcast skies.
08:28:13 <vw> Hopefully you can catch BH and Grand. :)

08:28:51 <cb> THAT is a now way is that

08:46:37 <cb> ughhhhh
08:46:47 <maureen> hopefully they will SAND the can hope.
08:47:33 <vw> Maureen, is your weather supposed to warm a bit after today? You know all those commuters will wear down some of that road buildup too.
08:48:13 <vw> So cb... No you need to goad Grand into starting, and then you can take the rest of the evening off?
08:48:25 <vw> *Now*
08:48:58 <cb> True, but i am not sure we would be able to see it IF it started!
08:49:38 <maureen> have not looked at the is 25 outside, you would think it could snow instead of ICE...
08:49:43 <cb> those people went the WRONG way. They could have had a really nice surprise!
08:49:53 <maureen> i will have to deice my car to go home.
08:50:07 <maureen> humans about?
08:50:11 <cb> this weather is just really weird. have a storm coming in here tonight also
08:50:22 <cb> 2 leggeds
08:50:33 <cb> a whole herd of em!
08:50:46 <cb> ON SKI"S even!
08:51:48 <cb> you going to Bozo for work or a visit?
08:52:23 <cb> (thinkin work, cuz not sure you'd go out in that weather for a visit)
08:53:35 <vw> Maureen, your forecast looks like what you are now is what you will have through Saturday: Highs in the mid 20's, mid teens at night and continuing precip. I don't see roads getting much better unless they get lots of traffic.
08:54:38 <cb> I think she got busy with work vw! :)
08:54:39 <ynpvisitor80> Editing and uploading BH now.
08:54:44 <vw> Leaving again. That means Grand should erupt shortly. Have a great evening all!

09:28:15 <cb> there were some skiers out on the BW just before, They went the wrong way or woulda had a nice surprise!
09:28:18 <AG> wondering if Lion will have a short interval between series again.
09:28:48 <ynpvisitor80> I think I have an earlier vid cap, I'll check
09:31:58 <Graham> you had any snow yet cb - to keep bill happy?
09:34:03 <ynpvisitor73> .

09:35:58 <AG> welcome to the club cb :)
09:36:07 <cb> haha!
09:36:13 <ynpvisitor80> 2 legged vid cap up at FB Yellowstone CamChat
09:39:02 <cb> Is everyone ready for the holiday's?
09:39:36 <Graham> never ready, just run out of time every year and nobody notices :)
09:40:37 <cb> :)
09:41:08 <cb> I got caught short today. Need to make some pumpkin bread and jam tonight
09:41:10 <Graham> u ready?
09:41:26 <Graham> lots of gifts for grand babies - wow how do you keep track?
09:41:28 <Hawkeye> a few more gifts to buy and decorate the tree that's been up since Sunday
09:41:36 <cb> Almost! Wrapped presents for the 12 grandkids last night.
09:41:56 <Graham> i have it easy tho, just fly to my sisters
09:41:58 <cb> Think next year its gift cards
09:42:06 <AG> Now that finals are over and I'm on break, I can christmas shop.
09:42:11 <Graham> hope you didn't forget anyone
09:42:44 <Graham> haha cb, i bet you love shopping for them and eseeing their eyes light up
09:43:01 <cb> I do!!!!!
09:46:27 <Graham> i am done with finals too Will :)
09:46:37 <AG> lol
09:46:44 <Will B> how many years ago....
09:46:49 <cb> LOL me too!
09:47:00 <cb> Not nice to ask age Will
09:47:27 <Will B> just a joke no need for an answer
09:47:49 <cb> I got that, just saying!
09:48:09 <AG> Never question the wisdom of a Elder Gazer.
09:48:19 <Graham> it was last century
09:48:20 <AG> (Elder as in older, not actually old.)
09:48:23 <cb> Good answer!
09:48:38 <AG> Do I get the gold star?
09:49:00 <Graham> AG hasn't graduated from "keep mouth shut" class
09:49:06 <cb> you have the chart? you get the star!
09:51:32 <Will B> so any bets on how big mouth will be next April?
09:51:54 <Graham> about the same as it is now
09:52:33 <AG> With the presence of two vents, I agree with Graham, that or it will slowly die, I wouldn't complain if it started erupting to 6 feet though :)
09:53:11 <Will B> I think it is one vent AG
09:54:59 <AG> Almost positive there's two, the lefthand one in the video just doesn't splash, you can occasionally see bubbles and pulsing from above where it's "located"
09:55:21 <AG> But If I'm wrong I'm wrong. no biggie, just an observation.
09:56:26 <Graham> maybe it will take over activity from the bug?
09:56:57 <Will B> what do you have against the bug?
09:58:00 <Graham> nothing, just a big geyser on the other side of the BW would be fun
09:58:31 <Graham> i didn't say it should remain the same size
09:58:51 <AG> Those showers would be warm for once probably.
09:59:04 <Graham> it is pretty close to the BW
09:59:15 <Graham> maybe need it to arch to the East
09:59:50 <AG> Hard to tell now, but if it does grow it seems like it will be a fountain geyser.
10:00:03 <AG> Would be nice to have something that does Blue bubbles on the Hill.
10:00:28 <Graham> yeah we need to move Velvet to the UGB
10:00:40 <AG> Although once I did observe a bubble from Anemone, but that was probably just a fluke.
10:00:55 <Graham> or STrokkur
10:01:04 <Will B> Lion?
10:01:13 <Graham> a geyser!
10:01:23 <Will B> Lion 1700 ini
10:01:44 <AG> Another short sleep.
10:01:47 <AG> cool!
10:01:56 <cb> 1701 Lion
