01:16:27 <ynpvisitor80> should be about time for Riverside
02:05:58 <Dave from B> Morning everyone
02:12:44 <Dave from B> Morning Paul
02:12:51 <Paul L.> Morning
02:25:22 <Dave from B> Grand window is here
02:26:16 <ynpvisitor85> did you check the last 2 intervals? crazy
02:26:39 <Dave from B> 85, I didn't....yuck
02:27:10 <ynpvisitor85> Open a wide window!
02:27:12 <Dave from B> 13 bursts in last 7 eruptions
02:27:55 <Dave from B> A lot of Grand starts this year
02:42:29 <Dave from B> Morning, Kevin
02:43:05 <Dave from B> OF 0742ie
02:43:10 <Kevin L> Morning. Have to go to the depot and turn a couple of pens this morning. txt me if BH decides to show.
02:43:27 <Dave from B> wILL DO, kEVIN
02:43:41 <ynpvisitor38> yet only half of the eruption
02:43:44 <Dave from B> Morning CO Dave
02:44:08 <Dave from B> Morning Terry
02:58:41 <Dave from B> Daisy?
02:58:43 <ynpvisitor38> Is Craig still in the park?
02:58:52 <Dave from B> Not sure, 38
02:59:19 <ynpvisitor38> Thanks Dave
02:59:45 <Dave from B> Daisy 0759ie
03:12:05 <CO Dave> Lion started at 0810 approx.
03:12:07 <Dave from B> Lion 0812ie
03:13:43 <CO Dave> initial Lion apparently.
03:19:40 <Dave from B> Morning Jenna
03:22:31 <Jenna> morning Dave
03:37:50 <Dave from B> Grand 0832wc per GT
03:39:23 <Kevin L> Don't see any spikes.
03:45:12 <Kevin L> Think that may have been Oblong.
03:46:47 <Jenna> I didn't see spikes either
03:47:11 <Dave from B> A ? has been added to td's post
03:51:56 <Dave from B> That should be Grand
03:52:10 <Kevin L> This looks like Grand
03:52:47 <Jenna> I third that motion
03:53:10 <ynpvisitor19> Weird the 0832? Still shows up on GT. That should be a secondary entry. Glitch I guess
03:53:33 <Kevin L> It is on Oblong now
03:54:09 <ynpvisitor19> Yes, both on Oblong
03:54:39 <ynpvisitor19> Glad this Grand interval is under 9 hours
03:54:59 <Kevin L> Spikes for sure on this one.
03:55:49 <CO Dave> I thought the 0832 eruption was too far right to be Grand - by a couple of trees anyway.
03:56:35 <Kevin L> May need the NoDoz for my shift.
03:56:51 <Dave from B> You should have BH and more Lions
03:57:06 <CO Dave> Hopefully Lion gives a nice long series.
03:57:26 <Dave from B> Maybe, you'll get Plume today
03:57:42 <Kevin L> BH may go before my shift
03:58:22 <Kevin L> We do get a Dodger game on ESPN tonight Dave.
03:59:54 <Tammy> Good morning everyone!
04:00:03 <Tammy> I hope you all had a great weekend!
04:00:05 <Kevin L> Morning.
04:29:01 <Jenna> Lion 0928
04:32:24 <Dave from B> LC 0932ie
04:33:19 <Kevin L> BH may wait for my shift.
05:02:06 <Kevin L> It would appear that BH did wait for me.
05:02:23 <Dave from B> Or, it could wait until after your shift.
05:07:26 <Kevin L> I am really unhappy with these 20h + BH intervals. Last year we were dealing with 6h Grands and 12h BH. Now the year I get to come we get 6h-10h Grand :p and 20+h BH eruptions. :p :P :p
05:11:34 <CO Dave> Kevin this way you get plenty of time to watch the rockpile or get to Fountain or Great Fountain or Norris...
05:16:18 <Kevin L> Problem with Grand is you have to be there at 6h but may have to wait 4h for the eruption. Same with BH. Need to be there by the 16h mark. Not going to be easy with an 18 mos kid.
05:18:28 <Dave from B> A long wait is better than not going.:)
05:18:45 <Kevin L> Very true
05:18:57 <Jenna> ..
05:18:59 <ynpvisitor63> I thought last year we were dealing with BH not erupting at all!
05:19:30 <ynpvisitor63> BH is doing much better this year, people are happy that they can at least see it when they come
05:20:45 <Kevin L> It had a strech. I like it in the 14h to 16h range.
05:21:37 <Dave from B> Yes, we had false indicators last year...that was not fun at all
05:22:29 <Kevin L> Last time I was there we had false indicators. We were there for the first one. That one was really a bummer because you didn't know if you were going to see it again.
05:23:59 <Kevin L> Luckily it would go about every 4th indicator.
05:33:40 <ynpvisitor63> that is lucky, folks were not so lucky last summer
05:34:02 <ynpvisitor63> hopefully it is F & M day, nice blue skies, sunshine...
05:34:26 <ynpvisitor63> OF
05:34:30 <Kevin L> OF 1034
05:34:51 <ynpvisitor63> Daisy
05:34:55 <Dave from B> Dasiy?
05:35:17 <Kevin L> Daisy 1035, Do I hear a Lion?
05:35:29 <ynpvisitor63> Daisy was 1034
05:36:07 <Kevin L> Yep. That is 1035 in Davespeak.
05:36:28 <Kevin L> Looks like another short OF
05:38:21 <Kevin L> Lion 1038
05:38:23 <Dave from B> Lion 1038
05:44:36 <Betty> Betty 1044
05:45:12 <Dave from B> :D
05:45:17 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty
05:45:33 <Betty> Morning Dave
05:45:51 <Kevin L> Guten Abend
05:46:09 <Betty> Guten Morgen Kevin
05:46:12 <Kevin L> No BH yet!
05:47:33 <Betty> I tried to watch a bit tonight, but did not stay regular in front of the computer. But folks were out I bet...
05:48:39 <Betty> So it turned into long interval again.predictions, Dave?
05:50:44 <Dave from B> BHI will start in the next 30 minutes
05:51:17 <ynpvisitor82> Good
05:51:27 <Betty> ahhh, you´re so kind. Thanks :-D
05:54:07 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
05:54:35 <Betty> morning lt
05:55:43 <lt> morning
06:10:47 <Betty> LC 1110
06:24:03 <ynpvisitor83> Looks like summer is back in the basin
06:26:02 <Michael> Sure does. Wish I was out there.
06:36:28 <Kevin L> OF 1036
06:46:04 <Kevin L> Your BHI is late Dave.
06:46:36 <Dave from B> I was hoping no one would notice!:)
06:47:20 <CO Dave> I'm going to lunch. BHI will commence.
06:48:23 <Betty> indi
06:48:27 <Betty> .
06:48:27 <Betty> .
06:48:27 <Betty> .
06:48:27 <Betty> .
06:48:27 <Betty> .
06:48:29 <Michael> Ding!
06:48:46 <Michael> CODave, are you still here?
06:48:55 <CO Dave> See??!!! I was faking it.
06:49:04 <Betty> lol
06:49:23 <Michael> Well played, then.
06:49:25 <Betty> and noone there :-(
06:50:04 <CO Dave> now the stampede should commence.
06:50:28 <ynpvisitor38> bee time
06:50:33 <Kevin L> Very few customers
06:50:35 <Betty> stop and stay, folks
06:50:54 <Dave from B> Nice work, CO Dave
06:51:37 <Kevin L> Don't think they know what they are looking at.
06:51:42 <ynpvisitor74> Lol...it should go now and scare those people with their backs turned!
06:51:47 <Betty> nope
06:51:48 <ynpvisitor59> Gee, I cane to Yellowstone to see geysers, the sign says Beehive may errupt when the indicator is going, but I'll walk on
06:51:54 <ynpvisitor7> everyone at F & M???
06:52:00 <Tammy> Me neither. This is an eruption they don't want to miss.
06:52:06 <Kevin L> I was wondering that.
06:52:27 <Betty> there is no info about that on the sign
06:52:29 <Kevin L> Seems to be no gazers. Must be an event cycle.
06:52:49 <ynpvisitor7> or they are just waiting for one at F & M
06:53:32 <ynpvisitor59> Disagree--sign talks about connection of BH and the indicator
06:53:50 <Dave from B> Thanks, 59. Was going to say the same thing
06:53:51 <Kevin L> None listed on GT, but that doesn't mean there isn't one.
06:53:51 <Andrew> a little but never actually specifically says, wait around
06:53:56 <ynpvisitor74> people don't read signs...that's why they walk off the boardwalk
06:54:05 <Andrew> I think thats what it says
06:54:12 <Kevin L> Somebody is pointing at BH.
06:54:14 <Betty> but it is not saying that the big one will erupt after the small oone
06:54:23 <Michael> The NPS is in a no-win situation with the sign. If they emphasize the indicator too much, it's a disaster when Beehive "breaks."
06:54:39 <Michael> Which seems to be every second or third summer...
06:55:06 <ynpvisitor59> That is why words like ma or could or usually exist
06:55:10 <ynpvisitor79> As i watch people walk by I remember the days before i started to research the geysers. Can't believe they are still moving.
06:55:12 <Dave from B> Morning lc, Michael
06:55:22 <Kevin L> They should just note that if the indicator is going it could mean BH will follow.
06:55:31 <ynpvisitor59> agreed
06:55:52 <lc> hey Dave, everybody.
06:56:09 <lc> thanks for the text
06:56:14 <Betty> hi lc
06:57:52 <Michael> Looks like somebody's figured it out now.
06:58:27 <Kevin L> Pretty surprised no gazer is there.
06:59:54 <ynpvisitor7> if everyone was at F & M, it is a long haul
07:00:07 <ynpvisitor7> Mara gets texts, so she knows about it
07:00:58 <Kevin L> True, but you would think given the interval someone would have been up there.
07:00:59 <Michael> steam has been blowing a couple of different ways since indicator started. That could make things interesting...
07:02:10 <ynpvisitor7> I think F & M is primary on everyone's minds
07:03:33 <ynpvisitor7> so now my stream gets wonky...?
07:03:40 <Dave from B> F&M viewers are probably at the BH overlook
07:04:37 <ynpvisitor86> great blastoff
07:04:37 <CO Dave> BH 1204
07:04:48 <Dave from B> Due to increses in bison pop in YNP, 900 bison will be leaving next winter...one way or another. link coming next
07:05:00 <Dave from B> http://billingsgazette.com/news/state-and-regional/montana/yellowstone-recommends-removing-about-bison/article_80439df2-9c38-5c68-a69b-cd6b112dfbc5.html
07:05:35 <ynpvisitor86> looks like its going for the maximum height
07:05:36 <Paul L.> Nice and high
07:05:48 <Dave from B> Beautiful
07:05:59 <Tammy> you're right Dave from B--it is beautiful!
07:06:15 <Tammy> and there must not be any wind since it's going straight up
07:06:38 <CO Dave> pretty much ideal conditions. I think that's as high as I've seen on the cam.
07:06:50 <Paul L.> Unlike our show right Tammy.
07:06:59 <ynpvisitor86> concur on the height. seems like 20% higher than average
07:07:19 <Tammy> You're right, Paul L. The wind that day was crazy!
07:07:40 <Michael> Best Beehive show I've seen in a _long_ time!
07:07:43 <Kevin L> Seems like the longer intervals are producing better eruptions.
07:08:00 <CO Dave> Y'all are welcome. Now I really am going to lunch :-)
07:08:17 <Michael> Thanks, CO Dave!
07:08:22 <Dave from B> That means Giantess is next?
07:08:34 <Betty> yippeee
07:08:37 <Kevin L> September 10th.
07:08:43 <CO Dave> d'oh!
07:09:03 <Betty> ok, short interval for you, Kevin ;-)
07:10:50 <Eric> Hello All :-)
07:11:03 <Eric> See I just missed BH :-(
07:11:18 <Betty> Hey Eric. bummer
07:12:15 <Eric> I got to see one in person last week...so I am still pretty charged up from that.
07:12:32 <Betty> :-)
07:59:19 <Jenna> Daisy
08:17:09 <Betty> OF 1316
08:29:37 <Kevin L> I think I need that large size NoDoz today.
09:13:47 <Kevin L> Well we are getting close to a Grande window anyway.
09:16:11 <Jenna> if you wait long enough we're always in somethings window :)
09:16:44 <Kevin L> Bet we are in an Aurum window now.
09:18:47 <Dave from B> Jenna, I'm still laughing at the pic of conor painting....Can I see the "after" photo? What does his shirt pants and hands look like?:)
09:26:00 <Jenna> I kept a very close eye on him. I let him wipe the paint on my shorts but he still did have some on his hands.
09:26:20 <Jenna> it didn't really need painting in that spot so you can't really tell :)
09:26:22 <Dave from B> That's pretty good! I'm amazed.
09:26:41 <Kevin L> Anything new on the house
09:26:47 <Dave from B> I bet he was proud to be "helping"
09:27:14 <Jenna> he wouldn't stop asking to go paint
09:27:32 <Jenna> I'll have to come up with a kid friendly painting project
09:27:37 <Jenna> maybe some new art for his room?
09:27:58 <Jenna> nothing new on the house, still waiting to hear about the purchase agreement. Lawyer was in court all last week.
09:28:42 <Jenna> he is a little bit OCD. there was some paint on the deck, and on the other color of trim, etc. But since we're moving I have lost a lot of concern about the house haha
09:31:15 <Dave from B> Do you currently own or rent?
09:34:06 <Jenna> we own
09:34:16 <Jenna> well Scott owns
09:35:58 <Graham> is it Friday yet?
09:36:58 <Kevin L> It's Saturday Graham!
09:39:34 <Graham> oh man and I wasted all those hours at work
09:39:58 <CO Dave> .
09:40:01 <Dave from B> Hi, Graham
09:40:24 <Dave from B> Jenna, then it's probably not okay to paint polka dots on your old house.
09:42:47 <Jenna> lol no I don't think so
09:43:18 <Jenna> once we get moved I'll have him paint something for his room. The new house has a big covered cement patio.
09:44:21 <Kevin L> Conor would have had a good time with us this weekend. We crashed some expensive rockets and then rode the train.
09:46:50 <Jenna> yes he would have
09:46:53 <Graham> so were allt the gazers at F&M during BH? Didn't see them on the BW.
09:46:54 <Jenna> probably more fun than painting
09:47:21 <Kevin L> Yes on both counts.
09:50:08 <Kevin L> We launched a Hot Wheels video car. Parachute caught in the fin so the desent was spinning. 2nd launch was great but a fin caught fire and one shattered upon landing. with a load of masking tape we were able to get a thired launch which was perfect except when I put the car in I pushed the button that turned record off. :p
09:50:35 <Jenna> of course!
09:50:39 <Jenna> sounds fun
09:51:03 <Graham> no event cycle reported on GT so I was wondering
09:51:10 <Eric> Hello all again :-)
09:51:24 <Kevin L> We were looking for one, but it didn't show up.
09:51:35 <Eric> When I was at BH last week, not a single gazer was there.
09:52:31 <Kevin L> One of the kids is supposed to do one of the launches on YouTube both from the ground and from the rocket. I will post the link when I get it.
09:52:59 <Jenna> looking forward to it
09:55:52 <Graham> no Turban report yet
09:58:04 <Betty> I think this is a turban?
09:59:37 <Betty> ugh-looks bigger
10:00:01 <Kevin L> Thinking we may have an Oblong.
10:00:28 <Betty> I´ll sign that
10:01:22 <Kevin L> We had one at 0831 this morning.
10:17:46 <Kevin L> Let's see, Dave leaves at 1600 and my shift is over at 1600. Sounds like a trigger for Grand.
10:19:32 <Kevin L> BTW Jenna, I am making some pens out of the scrap wood from a combine they are building at the RR museum. It is for the curator who is retiring this week.
10:20:15 <Betty> I´m leaving, so you still have tha chance. Nite all
10:20:31 <Eric> night betty
10:21:18 <Dave from B> I'm actually leaving at 1550 today
10:21:30 <Dave from B> oops...1530
10:21:41 <Eric> in 8.5 minutes
10:21:56 <Eric> Daisy
10:22:19 <Jenna> that is neat Kevin, you'll have to send pictures of the final project. Conor was busy helping Todd fixing our combine this weekend.
10:24:10 <Eric> Thanks for the zoom Kevin :-)
10:24:21 <ynpvisitor8> Wow, people actually watch Daisy?
10:24:40 <Kevin L> Took me a second to find where I have it now. I had to change browsers.
10:25:04 <Kevin L> Lot of people go to Daisy. I really like it.
10:26:27 <ynpvisitor79> My kids (3 and 5) really liked the sound of Daisy draining after the eruption, best explanation is it sounded kind of like a train chugging
10:26:50 <Graham> theres Daisy again :)
10:26:51 <Kevin L> My favorite part also!
10:27:08 <Graham> and Sawmill
10:27:18 <ynpvisitor8> I guess I am used to all the Grand geyser geezers. They don't seem to get into daisy.
10:27:57 <Dave from B> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
10:28:07 <ynpvisitor8> Or Riverside either
10:28:14 <Graham> bye Dave, time for Grand
10:28:19 <Kevin L> I was really hoping Aurum would put in an appearance on this shift.
10:28:34 <Dave from B> yes, Grand doesn't like me lately.
10:28:42 <Kevin L> You are leaving early Dave. Don't forget Dodgers are on ESPN tonight!
10:28:51 <Graham> dont see many Grand watchers waiting for Aurum either do you kevin?
10:29:07 <Eric> haha, bye Dave
10:29:18 <Kevin L> Would you believe that I have a picture of Paul Strasser waiting for it?
10:29:54 <Graham> nope
10:30:07 <Graham> bet he was waiting for Giantess really
10:30:26 <Graham> i like waiting for it in the winter tho
10:32:59 <Kevin L> Probably a different type of Combine Jenna. This is a combination Passenger/Baggage car Dan Markoff is building. He models in Pn3 scale.
10:33:39 <Graham> SC
10:35:44 <lt> turban?
10:36:25 <lt> and maybe now Grand
10:36:27 <lt> since Dave left
10:36:35 <Eric> haha
10:36:52 <Kevin L> Thanks Dave!
10:36:53 <Eric> Thanks for the sacrifice dave
10:37:09 <lt> it's getting nicely predictable
10:37:14 <lt> within 20 minutes of Dave leaving
10:37:26 <Graham> too early, its before my shift
10:37:40 <lt> tell Dave to work later
10:38:01 <Graham> gonna be a quiet evening for me
10:38:08 <Graham> maybe F&M will show up :)
10:38:33 <Kevin L> Maybe Aurum.
10:39:16 <Eric> or Giantess
10:39:19 <Kevin L> You do have a shot at another Grand.
10:40:46 <Graham> not me, i turn into sleeping beauty before then
10:42:27 <ynpvisitor75> oblong just erupted in series
10:43:19 <Graham> nice, it hasn't done that much recently
10:43:57 <Graham> one year it was doing it a bit, I saw it have a second following a 10m eruption
10:44:28 <Graham> amazing how it can have a "normal" eruption starting from an empty crater
10:44:57 <Kevin L> Oblong is a fun geyser.
10:45:18 <Graham> was my favorite spot to hang out waiting for Giant
10:45:44 <Graham> especially when the cage was crowded
10:47:02 <Kevin L> Wish they had a wide spot in the bw there.
10:47:50 <Graham> and nice comfy paded boardwalk for my naps there
10:49:22 <Kevin L> Another 1b
10:50:40 <Graham> odd Grand did a couple of 9h intervals
10:53:03 <Kevin L> Need to stick with 6-7 intervals.
10:54:29 <Graham> need F&M to erupt in hte next 36h to keep it on regular intervals
10:55:44 <Kevin L> The sputs are headed out there right now.
11:01:49 <Graham> i cant see them
11:02:21 <Kevin L> Just look over the hill!
11:02:24 <Graham> tonight is a watching night for sure, i usually just do a half night and have my phone on for an event call
11:03:01 <Graham> thats the only way i can keep it going for several nights in a row
11:03:22 <Graham> worst think is events every 2h
11:03:27 <Graham> thing
11:03:56 <Graham> time to work i guess, whats left? more Oblongs?
11:04:47 <Kevin L> Aurum. May get a Lion.
11:05:26 <Graham> okok, lets watch for Aurum
11:08:18 <Eric> Lion is looking quite bubbly
11:08:36 <Eric> LC
11:08:57 <Eric> Big Anemone
11:13:19 <Graham> is the stream still streaming?
11:13:33 <lt> is for me
11:13:34 <Eric> for me it is :-)
11:14:37 <Graham> OF 1614
11:14:44 <Graham> thanks, my stream had stopped
11:18:02 <Graham> SLot
11:18:53 <Eric> Caught a slot last week while I was there...my first in person viewing of it :-)
11:19:35 <Graham> nice. they were about every 30min the other day
11:20:51 <Eric> Cool little geyser....My only miss was Whirlygig :-(
11:21:04 <Eric> Sat for 4 hours and had to head out...
11:22:37 <Graham> it didnt like me last year
11:22:47 <Graham> looks like some homeless people at Anemone
11:25:27 <Graham> big
11:26:45 <Graham> WT
11:27:48 <Eric> Got to see a nice WT last week too :-)
11:28:04 <Eric> I was stoked at how many geysers I got in a single day :-)
11:28:29 <Eric> Luck and the knowledge I gained here on the webcam, made a huge difference.
11:28:32 <Graham> yep, UGB can give you a lot
11:28:56 <Graham> was fun when Pat did her 60 geysers for her 60th birthday
11:29:19 <Graham> that wasn't easy
11:29:48 <Eric> wow, 60 different geysers in one day?
11:31:10 <Graham> yep, lots of UGB and LGB geyssers
11:31:40 <Graham> she will have to work harder for 65 :)
11:31:41 <Eric> that is awesome
11:31:42 <ynpvisitor44> you can pick up a lot on Firehole Lake Drive
11:31:48 <Eric> true
11:32:03 <Eric> I got a dual White Dome and Great Fountain as well that day.
11:32:16 <Graham> I think Pat finished with Pink COne
11:34:37 <Kevin L> Pink Cone is a fun geyser.
11:34:49 <Eric> I have never seen it go...but the pictures look nice
11:35:03 <ynpvisitor44> ie today at 1345
11:35:25 <ynpvisitor44> and I thnk she finished out on Fountain Platform, she would know though...
11:36:04 <Eric> I meant to ask, does celestine pool erupt normally?
11:36:18 <ynpvisitor44> yes
11:36:27 <Eric> k
11:36:27 <ynpvisitor44> almost always has a boil on it
11:36:32 <Graham> how big?
11:36:36 <Eric> these were 3-4 ft eruptions
11:36:42 <ynpvisitor44> sometimes can be 5 feet?
11:36:45 <Eric> I had never seen it do that.
11:36:56 <Kevin L> You can bet she didn't wait on Aurum!
11:37:01 <Eric> haha
11:37:03 <Graham> haha
11:37:19 <ynpvisitor44> I would have to look on her list...
11:37:27 <Graham> have to check her list in the SPut - 3 years ago?
11:38:14 <ynpvisitor44> go check Graham...
11:38:20 <Eric> That doesn't leave you a lot of time for "waiting"
11:38:37 <Graham> my Sputs are not that well organized
11:39:22 <Graham> while waiting there you can cross off Lion, LC, beach, Veach spring, son of beach, Giantess, Vault, SPonge, Pump,
11:39:48 <Eric> even if you use your full 24 hours, thats a geyser every 24 minutes.
11:39:57 <Graham> dont think any of the unusual geysers erupted tho
11:40:15 <Graham> i think it was basically all daylight tho
11:40:23 <Kevin L> Does Doublet Pool count?
11:40:34 <Eric> or improbable
11:40:35 <Graham> no, its a pool
11:40:55 <Graham> PLH didnt erupt
11:41:46 <Graham> good Giant hot period can give about 10 geysers
11:42:18 <Eric> and at grand you get jet, turban, grande and possibly WT
11:42:38 <Graham> Perc, sputnic, rift
11:43:10 <Eric> the whole sawmill group while your waiting :-)
11:43:46 <Graham> still takes effort to get to 60
11:47:23 <Graham> Lion 1646
11:48:01 <Eric> wooohooo, a Lion ini
11:48:26 <Eric> I really wanted one of those bad last week :-(
11:48:58 <Graham> just have to go back to get it
11:49:06 <Eric> Yep
11:55:15 <Kevin L> No moose today
11:55:38 <Graham> what were you doing all day?
11:58:09 <Graham> wow Robin Williams is dead
11:58:27 <Eric> what???
11:59:02 <Graham> have to believe what you read on the internet
11:59:38 <Eric> wow...thanks for the heads up graham
12:00:08 <lt> actually does appear to be real and not just a hoax
12:00:27 <Eric> yes, investigating as suicide
12:00:29 <Graham> on NBC news here
12:01:15 <Eric> http://www.mercurynews.com/bay-area-news/ci_26317934/comedian-robin-williams-dies-sheriff-investigating-suicide
12:02:09 <lt> although it's not being carried by some other places I would think would have it, so still unsure
12:03:09 <lt> tricky to find since there was apparently a hoax *yesterday*
12:03:22 <ynpvisitor59> Verified on a couple of legit webpages--ie Entertainment weekly and hollywood reporter---so sad
12:05:42 <lt> publicist has apparently issued a statement
12:06:24 <Graham> wow loolk at all those ppl
12:06:49 <Kevin L> Either Micah is there or a Ranger group.
12:06:57 <Graham> Big
12:07:19 <Eric> I think it was the homeless people....
12:08:11 <Graham> i wonder if Micah and Mara are doing a 24h Aurum watch sometime?
12:08:12 <Kevin L> :)
12:08:47 <Graham> looks like a tour group
12:12:39 <Graham> LC
12:13:38 <ynpvisitor59> Amazing--a tour group that actually stops to see a geyser
12:15:39 <ynpvisitor54> sad day, about Robin Williams, depression is a tough one
12:16:10 <ynpvisitor54> the internet has picked it up, I googled it and there it was
12:22:46 <ynpvisitor54> CBS just broke into the news with a breaking report about it.
12:23:34 <ynpvisitor54> I have never seen a special report about an actor before. Odd
12:30:11 <ynpvisitor54> did you read HK's blog about the guy camping at Artemisia? I wonder is the bear will find him...
12:31:00 <Graham> yeah, funny to hear that. not surprised in that area tho, out of the way but still close. would love to wake up to the thumps
12:31:41 <ynpvisitor54> bet the camper is not bear proofing his site...
12:34:45 <Eric> improbable is kicking it up back there.
12:35:02 <Eric> Big anemone too
12:48:48 <Graham> Daisy 1748
12:53:31 <Graham> Lion
12:54:01 <Eric> OF 1753
12:54:26 <Eric> wow...that was a a short Lion interval following ini
12:54:33 <Eric> 62 minutes
12:54:50 <Kevin L> Interesting lighting.
12:55:13 <Eric> sorry, 66 minutes
12:56:18 <Graham> still short
12:56:39 <Eric> Yep, keep our eye on Giantess ;-)
15:17:07 <Graham> an event reported, not a very good one tho
15:17:13 <Graham> wonder if thats the first all day?
15:21:39 <Graham> quitting time, goodnight
