22:10:15 <Betty> @@**???*@@ cam is down again :-(
00:10:29 <ynpvisitor84> VC cam down
00:11:16 <ynpvisitor88> why has the cam been down so much
00:11:46 <ynpvisitor84> not sure, think it is the line.
00:13:18 <ynpvisitor88> wonder what is causing all of the steam from geyser hill on static
00:14:33 <ynpvisitor85> high humidity this morning
00:14:41 <ynpvisitor85> nothing erupting
02:01:30 <ynpvisitor1> Sad once again :(
02:03:25 <ynpvisitor85> most ppl are glad to be #1
02:51:32 <ynpvisitor85> not as interesting as the OF streaming cam but it is 12 times the height of Giant Geyser.....

03:01:45 <Jake> the most satisfying part of that video is watching the "Stream Loading" fade away w/o error
03:06:08 <ynpvisitor85> not the same watching water only go in one direction
03:37:35 <ynpvisitor58> So more quakes or other reason the cam is down? Oldest nationa park and I guess you can not run a hi def webcam on old telegraph wires.
04:10:05 <ynpvisitor5> bring back the old cam!!
04:11:17 <ynpvisitor85> except the old cam didnt work either when the comms went down
05:27:51 <Jake> streaming is working
05:29:26 <Jake> Depression 1229 ie
05:35:34 <lt> thanks for the heads up on the streaming, Jake
05:37:09 <Jake> just in time for Beehive, which seems to be piling up the victims out there
05:37:25 <lt> well, I won't complain. :)
05:37:49 <lt> although if fluffy wants to fluff less, that would be great.
05:57:53 <ynpvisitor46> is it raining in the basin? Is someone driving the cam?
06:02:19 <ynpvisitor92> Not preset view so someone must be driving.

06:02:52 <lt> .
06:02:52 <lt> .
06:02:52 <lt> .
06:03:29 <ynpvisitor92> Going to have Beehive in the rain. Wish I was there.
06:03:54 <lt> noting for the record, since folks are curious about lag, recorded time according to my chat matches the inbasin time
06:04:02 <lt> 1302
06:04:29 <ynpvisitor46> make sure Will sees it!
06:05:01 <ynpvisitor46> not sure it is raining
06:18:50 <Kitt> thanks Polly
06:20:17 <Kitt> Go Beehive
06:20:46 <ynpvisitor92> No one can complain about a short Indicator
06:20:47 <ynpvisitor44> did you get the email?
06:20:57 <ynpvisitor44> Kitt?
06:21:04 <Kitt> a coworker just brought us food
06:21:25 <ynpvisitor81> 1321
06:25:41 <Kitt> yikes
06:25:51 <Kitt> missed the first part of the eruption
06:25:57 <Kitt> was at the door
06:26:08 <Kitt> what is erupting over the hill?
06:26:38 <Kitt> I guess 2 minutes is better than none
06:26:52 <ynpvisitor44> very good timing Kitt
06:27:05 <Kitt> I will check my e-mails again
06:27:20 <Kitt> I got a phone call from Tricia in England
06:27:48 <ynpvisitor41> Can't tell where the downbasin steam is coming from when it's zoomed in.
06:28:06 <kcmule> @Kitt, i was just there hours ago
06:28:08 <ynpvisitor81> Nice that the streaming cam is back up
06:29:30 <Kitt> I am glad to see steaming is working for now
06:29:50 <Kitt> may have found Mom's policy
06:30:53 <Kitt> Hopefully I will be in the Park by June 20th

06:42:09 <kcmule> yw
06:45:37 <kcmule> this was my first observed eruption on the new cam, been away for a while
06:46:11 <Kevin L> Normally a bit smaller than this.
07:10:29 <Kevin L> Riverside?
07:11:32 <kcmule> probably. does seem a bit left of the goal posts tho
07:11:58 <Kevin L> Hard to tell with this view.
07:12:28 <Demetri> Where would F&M be in comparison to the goal posts?
07:12:44 <kcmule> left
07:13:18 <Demetri> Doesn't seem like a very windy day either to skew things
07:13:42 <Kevin L> From the jpg it is between F&M and Riverside.
07:14:52 <Kevin L> We should get an on the ground report soon.
07:15:02 <ynpvisitor91> SO who is driving?

10:33:03 <kcmule> OF i presume..
11:26:31 <ynpvisitor61> Tell me the cam is not stuck looking at bh and lion group
11:27:27 <ynpvisitor61> Is tat depression or something else?
11:30:00 <ynpvisitor10> i think it may be old tardy geyser
11:30:36 <yellowstone gir> whats up everyone?
11:32:01 <YellowstoneGirl> any news on certain geysers that may have erupted 1230pm to now
11:32:09 <ynpvisitor61> Well if that is the lion preset, I am not impressed
11:34:30 <YellowstoneGirl> is that dark spot near OFG an animal
11:34:31 <YellowstoneGirl> ?
11:36:22 <kcmule> no animals visible that i can see
11:36:35 <YellowstoneGirl> just making sure
11:37:35 <kcmule> geysertimes.org has most of the day's eruptions but we dont have an afternoon grand report yet
11:37:59 <kcmule> prob ~1612
11:40:06 <YellowstoneGirl> there is a lot of steam from a geyser right before grand near the trees. cant remember the name of it
11:40:41 <kcmule> castle is in our view now
11:46:51 <YellowstoneGirl> looks like sawmill going off
11:50:13 <kcmule> anemones in the lower right
11:54:39 <YellowstoneGirl> now which one may be erupting near the tree line now?
11:55:05 <kcmule> probably turban
12:01:01 <YellowstoneGirl> thats what im thinking it is
12:02:30 <kcmule> oblong is also on that sight line, but i would think there would have been more steam
12:02:47 <YellowstoneGirl> grand prediction: 1045
12:03:24 <YellowstoneGirl> i called he ofvc number and thats what they said
12:03:49 <YellowstoneGirl> castle prediction 515am tomorrow morning
12:04:11 <kcmule> how bout daisy
12:04:30 <Diane> I haven't been on too much since the new webcam has gone live and I'm still trying to get my bearings a bit - the occasional puff of steam we are seeing to the right of Turban/Grand - would that be in the Grotto area?
12:05:02 <kcmule> yes
12:05:36 <Diane> Thanks, I know the angle is very much the same, but I still feel a little disoriented.
12:06:02 <YellowstoneGirl> its ok

12:44:59 <YellowstoneGirl> what is the one left of beehive geyser ?
12:45:32 <YellowstoneGirl> and before lion group
12:45:45 <Diane> Probably you are talking about Depression, but I'm not sure.
12:46:23 <YellowstoneGirl> probably is cause thats what i was thinking of
12:46:46 <YellowstoneGirl> its the geyser erupting near beehive below lion group before the turn of the boardwalk
12:48:09 <YellowstoneGirl> lots of steam too above the trees behind/right of grand
12:48:24 <YellowstoneGirl> wonder if it could be riverside steam
12:50:12 <YellowstoneGirl> wow i like the views of thw ateam everywhere
12:52:56 <YellowstoneGirl> i looked at the gt website and someone typed in
12:53:12 <YellowstoneGirl> depression geyser around the time that i said that there was
12:53:37 <YellowstoneGirl> depression geyser around the time that i said that there was 1830
12:54:43 <YellowstoneGirl> there is supposed to be one at 1845
12:55:47 <YellowstoneGirl> oh well
12:59:36 <YellowstoneGirl> looks like steam from riverside above the tree line in the back of grand
