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