01:04:25 <Jenna> morninv vw
01:04:53 <vw> Hi Jenna.
01:05:26 <vw> Sawmill is putting on a nice show. Don't know if it has been on since first reported this morning at 0524.
01:06:50 <Jenna> I haven't been looking much
01:26:31 <vw> OF 0926 ns
01:29:22 <ynpvisitor52> Daisy at 0829 static
01:29:27 <vw> Daisy 0929 ie
01:31:13 <vw> Sawmill is off.
01:35:44 <ynpvisitor45> .
01:38:15 <vw> BHI 0938 ie
01:38:41 <vw> Quite a few people there so am guessing it has been on a while.
01:42:21 <vw> Maybe not. They are all leaving en masse
01:55:03 <vw> BH trying. Lots of splashing.
02:04:35 <ynpvisitor45> Fountain time is posted FYI
02:20:54 <Jenna> looks like indy is off

02:55:22 <vw> Hi craig.
02:55:36 <craigmon99> hey
02:56:03 <ynpvisitor76> Is there a new cam on Washburn NE? Looks like it is high resolution now.
02:56:45 <vw> I don't know. Is there an update on the webcam page for NPS/YNP? There may be a note there or on FB?
02:58:09 <ynpvisitor76> Didn't notice an update and hadn't checked it in a while since they didn't work anyway. Can't tell much on the other cam, but the picture on the NE one looks much better.
03:23:14 <ynpvisitor45> ..
03:32:27 <vw> Sawmill 1131 ie
03:34:25 <vw> Missed an Uncertain while we were watching Lion and waiting for OF.
03:37:43 <vw> Possible Lion and a Daisy should be in the next half hour or so.
03:58:30 <vw> Lion 1158
04:02:31 <vw> Daisy 1202 ie, static cam.

05:24:07 <Jenna> what is that?? :)
05:24:18 <vw> A surprise
05:24:23 <Jenna> sure is!
05:24:28 <Jenna> I wasn't even watching for indy
05:25:23 <ynpvisitor41> hoooooooooray!!!
05:25:57 <ynpvisitor2> hey!!!!
05:27:08 <vw> I have no idea if BHI was playing before start. No Indy now.
05:27:57 <Jenna> it had been about 4 hours, I should have been watching
05:27:59 <Rich> I got a cap going with start of BH but am on delay, what time is it now vw?
05:28:38 <vw> Not sure what you mean Rich. The time for me now is 1328 MDT.
05:28:44 <Rich> ty
05:29:09 <vw> Capture won't be that good. BH preset is way off so we got a few seconds of ground. :P
05:29:12 <Rich> I'll check cap and see what time it started for me.
05:30:16 <vw> As to actual start, not sure about that either. I got 1323 ie, but could have een earlier. I am not watching the screen FT.
05:30:56 <vw> Back to RL for me for a bit more.
05:34:30 <Jenna> SC 1334
05:36:09 <Rich> I believe I have BHI 1307 ie wc and BH 1323 wc
05:36:28 <Jenna> makes sense

06:38:21 <Rich> My battery is about to die, so will call it a day. Hope everyone has a great Geyser Gazing day.
06:38:55 <Rich> Later gang
06:44:32 <ynpvisitor62> no text for BH today...
06:45:32 <Jenna> we had no warning
06:54:29 <ynpvisitor62> it says 1307 BHI i.e., that is way before BH
06:55:07 <ynpvisitor62> maybe Rich saw it and not others...
06:55:21 <ynpvisitor62> anyways, glad it is erupting again on a kind of regular basis
06:56:35 <ynpvisitor62> Grand was almost 10 hour interval last night, wowsa
06:57:30 <Jenna> he went back and saw when it was going, but none of us actually saw it :)
06:57:45 <ynpvisitor62> did you get to see BH?
06:57:46 <Jenna> cam was pulled back pretty far since vw was away and it was hard to see
06:57:54 <Jenna> I did! finally! it's been awhile
06:58:00 <Jenna> I just happened to pull this window up
06:58:03 <ynpvisitor62> GOOD!!
06:58:18 <Jenna> time to head home for me, have a good evening!
06:58:28 <ynpvisitor62> enjoy the rest of the weekend
07:28:40 <ynpvisitor14> Lion 1528 ie
08:20:18 <ynpvisitor8> big delay here for Grand
08:26:37 <ynpvisitor14> Vent delay @ 1519
08:26:57 <ynpvisitor8> yep, over an hour ago
08:28:39 <ynpvisitor8> time for Turban soon
08:46:34 <ynpvisitor8> GO GRAND
08:47:28 <ynpvisitor8> nooooo
08:48:26 <ynpvisitor8> maybe OF will go before next Turban
08:48:29 <vw> Yeah, sorry about that, but time to watch for OF.
08:48:48 <ynpvisitor8> just hoping it goes soon, OF I mean
08:48:51 <vw> Daisy due too.
08:49:11 <ynpvisitor8> we cannot see Daisy now, right?
08:49:17 <ynpvisitor8> Aurum?
08:49:27 <ynpvisitor8> nope
08:49:29 <vw> Daisy would be in the public stream picture, far left.
08:50:00 <ynpvisitor8> yet we cannot see it on cam now...
08:50:15 <vw> No, it is not erupting yet.
08:50:46 <ynpvisitor8> boardwalk looks slick, has it been raining?
08:51:02 <vw> I don't know. I haven't been watching much.
08:51:17 <vw> Seems there are lots of clouds from the darkness on the VEC cam though.
08:51:36 <ynpvisitor8> looks like 1900 instead of 1700
08:52:48 <vw> National NOAA mosaic is showing lots of clouds/storms in the area.
08:53:07 <vw> http://radar.weather.gov/Conus/full_loop.php
08:53:32 <ynpvisitor8> big clouds coming their way
08:53:56 <ynpvisitor8> F & M watch could get dicey
08:54:36 <vw> Remember that the radar coverage for the Park area is bad. Some areas would sow as clear when in fact there could be storms in the area.
08:55:03 <vw> sow = show.
08:55:04 <ynpvisitor8> oh right. Well the ones coming their way look pretty big
08:55:30 <ynpvisitor8> erupt already OF
08:55:54 <vw> Most of southern MT and Northern WY are under flash flood warnings because storms with substantial moisture are expected tonight.
08:56:05 <ynpvisitor8> I did not know that
08:56:21 <ynpvisitor8> another 9+ interval for Grand
08:56:30 <ynpvisitor8> this time last year it was moving toward the 5 hour ones
08:56:33 <vw> Warning was issued very early this afternoon and extends through tomorrow 6am.
08:57:58 <ynpvisitor8> go OF
08:59:48 <ynpvisitor8> not looking good for Grand start
09:00:12 <vw> Still have 5 minutes before next Turban.
09:00:20 <vw> Daisy 1700 ie, static cam.
09:00:25 <ynpvisitor8> no event cycles listed for F & M though I think there was one
09:00:39 <ynpvisitor8> we are already at 15 min.
09:02:00 <vw> People moving around on bw, with some leaving. May be lightening/thunder in the area.
09:02:45 <ynpvisitor8> yeah, leaving before the eruption
09:02:59 <vw> Wind picking up too.
09:03:09 <vw> OF 1702
09:03:13 <ynpvisitor8> finally
09:04:09 <vw> Will be very close on next Turban time.
09:04:55 <vw> Wind is howling, based on how much the spray and steam is being held down and blown around.
09:05:41 <ynpvisitor8> mini
09:05:49 <vw> Grand benches may not be a safe place to be.
09:06:10 <ynpvisitor8> gazers are crazy, you know that
09:06:25 <ynpvisitor8> bet Will is still at F & M
09:06:45 <vw> Out in the open sitting on metal benches would not be a good place to sit out a lightening storm.
09:07:07 <ynpvisitor8> well, mostly plastic right?
09:07:28 <ynpvisitor8> So can we go back to Grand now?
09:08:53 <ynpvisitor8> wonder what happened, no Turban posted after 45
09:09:14 <vw> 1703 Turban posted.
09:09:27 <ynpvisitor8> must have just happened, I was just on GT, funny
09:09:51 <ynpvisitor8> Says it is RAINING
09:11:02 <vw> I will check back in a bit. Can't watch with the bounce.
09:11:27 <ynpvisitor8> go closer?
09:11:40 <ynpvisitor8> bounce is not as bad then
09:12:24 <vw> Already had the cam there and it was worse.
09:12:39 <ynpvisitor8> oh ok
09:20:55 <ynpvisitor99> ..
09:21:03 <ynpvisitor8> lightning
09:21:51 <ynpvisitor8> surprised we have not seen Turban
09:25:35 <ynpvisitor8> 22 minutes since last Turban
09:25:55 <ynpvisitor8> unless it happened already
09:26:57 <vw> Turban 1721 time entered.
09:27:28 <ynpvisitor8> Graham said "this is fun?" HA
09:27:40 <vw> With weather commentary.
09:32:53 <ynpvisitor99> 10 hours now, not quite like last September
09:35:11 <ynpvisitor8> cloud down basin....
09:35:18 <ynpvisitor8> F & M?
09:35:40 <ynpvisitor8> Graham would be down there if it was I imagine
09:35:44 <vw> More than likely Grotto.
09:35:51 <vw> Too far left for F&M.
09:36:45 <ynpvisitor99> sad story from Grant today -
09:36:48 <ynpvisitor99> http://www.nps.gov/yell/parknews/13079.htm
09:37:32 <vw> That is horrible.
09:38:26 <ynpvisitor99> truly
09:38:30 <ynpvisitor8> I knew allowing guns in YNP would come to no good
09:38:37 <ynpvisitor8> I mean, what is the point?
09:38:43 <ynpvisitor8> The parent should go to jail
09:38:59 <vw> An unreasonable fear of wildlife.
09:39:16 <ynpvisitor8> hmmm, it was not allowed for years and folks did just fine
09:39:23 <ynpvisitor8> steamy at Grand
09:39:24 <vw> Yeap.
09:39:51 <ynpvisitor8> so freaking sad, what a waste of life
09:39:54 <vw> Do the Park regulations allowing firearms require safety locks? I have not checked out the regs.
09:40:11 <ynpvisitor8> have no idea
09:40:49 <ynpvisitor8> parents are never prosecuted when their kids kill themselves or siblings with guns,
09:41:03 <ynpvisitor8> it is just an "accident"
09:41:17 <vw> Rarely anyway. Certainly not in the western states.
09:41:29 <ynpvisitor8> hard to believe the YNP website had the news on the same day.
09:41:46 <ynpvisitor8> can you think of one anywhere in US?
09:42:08 <ynpvisitor8> Grand has to go this time, right?
09:42:10 <vw> Yes, back east several states have prosecuted parents under endangerment statutes.
09:42:12 <ynpvisitor8> there it is
09:42:25 <ynpvisitor8> or not
09:42:32 <vw> No, No Grand.
09:42:34 <ynpvisitor8> is that Penta?
09:42:56 <vw> Spasmodic more than likely. Old Tardy too.
09:43:11 <ynpvisitor8> Rift?
09:43:31 <vw> Could be Rift. IDK.
09:43:47 <ynpvisitor8> no post
09:43:58 <ynpvisitor8> steamy area let's call it
09:44:12 <vw> If its raining they may not want their phones to get wet.
09:44:59 <ynpvisitor8> no Turban post
09:45:46 <vw> 1741 Turban
09:46:16 <ynpvisitor8> wow, sad post from Graham
09:54:21 <ynpvisitor8> folks have been posting Turbans since before 1400
09:54:35 <ynpvisitor8> sky looks better
09:55:04 <ynpvisitor8> static does not look so nice though
09:55:20 <ynpvisitor8> GO GRAND
09:57:13 <vw> Call from Will: Spa 1755 ie (I will post to GT). F&M event mid-day. Heading back there now. Weather: light rain.
09:58:35 <vw> I need to head out and I don't know if there is another operator available. Cam will have to go into a wide view.
09:58:37 <ynpvisitor8> Wonder if he saw any geysers waiting on F & M all day
09:58:52 <ynpvisitor8> also wonder if he got a cheap place to stay tonight
09:59:16 <ynpvisitor8> is it time for OF again?
09:59:24 <vw> Maybe F&M benches? Pretty cheap.
09:59:46 <vw> No, but I have to go. Cam has to be (mostly) on preset.
09:59:54 <ynpvisitor8> ha ha, a legal place to stay
10:00:04 <ynpvisitor8> and so it goes...bye vw
10:00:19 <ynpvisitor8> over 10 hour Grand interval
10:00:20 <vw> Have a great evening all.
