00:34:28 <Dave from B> Morning Paul and numbers
00:45:57 <Dave from B> I'll be anxious to see the next BH interval
00:54:10 <Jimbo> Maybe Grotto or Oblong steam over the trees
00:55:07 <Jimbo> Shouldnt say "maybe". It's Grotto or Oblong.
00:58:13 <Dave from B> Morning Jimbo, CO Dave
01:02:26 <Dave from B> Here's the real story about the melting road from earlier this summer.
01:02:45 <Dave from B>
01:03:55 <Dave from B> That's not what I intended. oops
01:06:53 <ynpvisitor20> Depression ie?
01:20:20 <CO Dave> Looks like Lion is finishing up back there hiding in the steam.
01:21:20 <CO Dave> yup. Lion finished 0821. No idea when it started.
01:22:35 <ynpvisitor57> hi
01:27:40 <CO Dave> OF 0827 ie
01:35:04 <ynpvisitor27> What is the real story about the road?
01:37:37 <Dave from B> This may be old news but the sealant they applied didn't allow heat to escape and that is why the road melted
01:38:18 <Dave from B> It wasn't from magma oozing at the surface or whatever other crazy stories were out there.
01:38:38 <Dave from B> Lion again 0838ie
01:41:21 <ynpvisitor20> That is odd.
01:43:13 <Jimbo> Active Little Cub ie
01:44:42 <ynpvisitor35> Is there an article about it?
01:46:17 <Dave from B> I saw it in an email from the Yelowstone Association. I tried to quickly find it on their website but was unsuccessful.
01:46:18 <ynpvisitor35> What is the BH prediction Dave?
01:47:01 <Dave from B> BH 1545-1745...a return to the 20-22 hour intervals:(
01:47:27 <ynpvisitor35> Ty
01:47:34 <ynpvisitor20> I like 14 hour better.
01:47:46 <Dave from B> @0, me too!
01:47:55 <Dave from B> 20, me too!
01:48:12 <Jenna> grotto steam?
01:48:32 <ynpvisitor35> I agree. Nice of it to throw the 14 to bring it out of darkness hours. We would not have seen it for days.
01:48:39 <Jimbo> I think Grotto. Been going for awhile there.
01:50:11 <Dave from B> I agree, 35. Nice to have in daylight again
01:50:28 <Dave from B> Our household is back to 4 people again.:(
01:51:18 <ynpvisitor20> Daughter go to school?
01:52:03 <Dave from B> Yep
02:05:29 <Jenna> it seems like school is starting so early this year
02:05:37 <Jenna> should someone log grotto?
02:10:16 <Dave from B> My daughter starts Aug 23 but has other school commmittments beforehand.
02:10:21 <Dave from B> Morning Jenna
02:11:37 <ynpvisitor55> 23 is a Saturday I think
02:15:30 <Dave from B> Must be the Monday then!:)
02:16:36 <ynpvisitor55> Will starts on 25th
02:16:59 <Jenna> morning Dave
02:20:01 <Jenna> I was used to it starting later
02:24:39 <ynpvisitor20> Interesting OF seismo info now.
02:36:22 <ynpvisitor20> Daisy
02:38:33 <Jenna> Lion
02:39:10 <Dave from B> I thought Lion would be done
03:23:47 <kc (working)> riverside maybe
03:32:41 <ynpvisitor20> Lion 1032
03:33:55 <Jenna> really nice long series
03:45:11 <ynpvisitor87> Lots of times mentioned here not on GT
03:45:53 <Jenna> I was going to enter Grotto but someone said it had been going for awhile before I saw it so I didn't.
03:45:54 <Jenna> But I can.
03:46:16 <Jenna> I can enter Lion as well
03:46:35 <Dave from B> 87, Some of us are also working.
03:48:06 <kc (working)> grotto isnt usually called from the wc
03:48:51 <Jenna> too many other things behind the trees
03:53:08 <Jake> just got internet installed in the I never have to leave again!
03:55:14 <Dave from B> haha
03:55:18 <Dave from B> Morning Jake
03:55:51 <Dave from B> And, you are only 2:30 from OF!
04:04:41 <Jake> hmmm, maybe only 2:30, but we went in to the Park yesterday (late) and spent 19 minutes in line at the North gate
04:04:57 <Jake> then, the road construction
04:06:09 <Dave from B> Are they doing any work at the North Entrance yet?
04:07:26 <Jake> I didn't see any. They had a little phonebooth-sized thing for the employee line and were sending visitors through both
04:07:38 <Jake> I'd never seen that booth before
04:08:42 <Dave from B> The North Entrance route is going to be a mess for the next couple of years.
04:14:47 <ynpvisitor10> any news about the guy lost in the river?
04:15:02 <Dave from B> I haven't heard any updates today
04:15:33 <ynpvisitor10> yesterday I read 50 people were involved in the search
04:18:23 <Jake> nasty river through there. There have been other bodies never recovered from that section of the Yellowstone
04:20:20 <ynpvisitor10> yes, he was headed to a very rough section, he may not be found
04:30:56 <Dave from B> I still can't believe someone who tried to run that strecth in a inner tube.
04:31:04 <Dave from B> who = would
04:32:12 <CO Dave> It's been a bad year for that kind of thing. We've had an unusually large number of accidents and deaths here, many from commercial guide trips.
04:49:30 <Dave from B> bbl
04:51:36 <Jake> Oblong ?
04:52:24 <CO Dave> I was just wondering that. Been 6 hours since Grand...
04:52:46 <Jake> I'm calling Oblong, it's not Grand
04:53:17 <CO Dave> yeah, just a bit too far right by a few trees. easier to tell with some zoom.
04:54:05 <ynpvisitor10> Will is out there, maybe he will post it
04:55:38 <Jenna> Daisy
04:55:41 <Jake> Daisy 1155
04:56:35 <Jenna> a girl I worked with at Roosevelt wrecked on the first bridge as your headed to Lamar and ended up in the river. They never found her. It was a rough summer.
04:56:45 <Jenna> you're*
05:00:07 <ynpvisitor10> Will posted Percolator yet no Turbans yet
05:02:49 <Jake> Artemisia 1157 ie --- is that one of those steam clouds back there?
05:03:13 <Jenna> looks like it
05:04:38 <ynpvisitor10> far off on a distant hill
05:15:36 <Jake> BHI
05:15:37 <Jake> ding

05:20:00 <lt> well, at least we can enjoy it, Jake. :)
05:20:10 <lt> even if everyone else is apparently asleep
05:20:31 <Jenna> ugh not good timing for me
05:20:33 <Jake> you seen one webcam Beehive, you've seen em all
05:22:45 <lt> nice watching the sun play hide and seek with it
05:25:23 <lt> good size crowd for it
05:29:40 <Betty> yay, Indy! Good timing to step in :-)
05:30:34 <Betty> go
05:30:40 <lt> woot
05:31:35 <lt> so 1230 BH
05:32:54 <Kitt> Yeah Bee
05:33:12 <Kitt> I turned my computer on to find out Beehive had just started
05:33:14 <Betty> Hi Kitt
05:33:18 <Kitt> Nice and tall
05:33:41 <Betty> and hi, lt and Jake
05:34:16 <Kitt> Beautiful lighting
05:34:47 <CO Dave> It's because I went to lunch.... at least I saw the end.
05:34:49 <Jake> another successful prediction from Alan
05:34:56 <Kitt> what a lovely lunch surprise
05:35:11 <Kitt> oh, what was his prediction
05:35:24 <Jake> 0856-1256
05:35:48 <Jake> in the window with plenty of time to spare ;)
05:36:12 <ynpvisitor15> Good crowd too
05:36:13 <Kitt> distant view, was fluffy due?
05:36:38 <Jake> doesn't seem to be any cam op for the last couple hours
05:36:46 <Kitt> oh
05:37:09 <Kitt> it has been raining in Worland all morning
05:37:11 <ynpvisitor15> 1308 is VC prediction on the Fluffster
05:37:18 <Kitt> smells wonderful
05:37:35 <Jake> hi Betty, I just got a website report for GT that says Germany is the 3rd country in terms of GT visitors behind USA and UK
05:38:39 <Betty> cool, we know which things are important and good ;-)
05:38:43 <Kitt> I figured Beehive would be in the 16 to 19 range
05:38:56 <Kitt> It was nice of it to stay on the lower side
05:39:30 <Kitt> so early morning tomorrow
05:39:37 <Kitt> have a great day
05:39:41 <Kitt> time for lunch
05:39:49 <Kitt> bye
05:40:29 <Betty> bye Kitt
05:46:51 <Betty> wow, nice Lion series today
05:49:28 <CO Dave> 8, with a minor. Unless it goes right now, I figure it is done.
05:53:59 <CO Dave> GT shows first Turban at 1212, no next one reported. We could be right on for the third at the moment.
05:54:32 <Dave from B> ...
06:04:40 <Dave from B> ..
06:15:21 <Betty>
06:15:31 <Betty> ?
06:19:00 <Dave from B> #B?
06:19:14 <Jake> no, #ß
06:19:55 <Betty> hehe, was wondering about a short bit big OF burst
06:20:23 <Betty> but....
06:20:54 <Betty> Davespeak, you know?
06:24:14 <ynpvisitor18> OF 1323
06:27:39 <Jake> Grand 1327
06:28:02 <Betty> big
06:29:37 <ynpvisitor90> This is why I have not watched one of this year. We can not watch grand becausae of is still seaming
06:29:46 <ynpvisitor90> steaming
06:30:33 <Jake> well, I think they need volunteer cam ops, 90
06:30:56 <Jake> it could be YOU! I don't think there is a cam op on right now
06:31:34 <ynpvisitor90> Who quit? there was someone zoomed into of a bit ago.
06:32:09 <Dave from B> Cam op coverage is very limited today.
06:32:30 <ynpvisitor90> I am not here long enough. I only popped in to see grand as I missed bh.
06:33:12 <Jake> you wouldn't have like BH anyway, it wasn't zoomed in
06:33:32 <Jake> it was only about 100 pixels high
06:34:07 <CO Dave> even non-panned, non zoomed video is better than nothing or still pictures.
06:34:28 <Jake> Give me zoom or give me death! -ynpvisitor90
06:36:20 <ynpvisitor55> question- what's the long interval like on Narcissus
06:37:15 <Jake> you mean, how long is the interval post-major? or what does the pool look like?
06:37:33 <Jake> Grand 2B
06:37:44 <Dave from B> :)
06:37:55 <CO Dave> yeah Grand!
06:38:08 <CO Dave> that seemed like a long time between bursts to me.
06:38:37 <CO Dave> or maybe I just wasn't paying attention. work anyway...
06:49:29 <ynpvisitor73> Autumn!!!
06:49:33 <Jake> Aurum
06:49:39 <Betty> whoo
06:50:26 <Dave from B> I missed it
06:50:37 <Betty> darn
06:51:50 <Dave from B> I have to have my sound off to keep from distracting there an electrical shock option available?:)
06:52:29 <Betty> maybe a flashing screen?
06:52:38 <Dave from B> That might work
06:53:10 <Betty> green and red flashes
07:18:40 <kc (working)> daisy ie
07:18:41 <Betty> Daisy
07:19:35 <Dave from B> Camera seems to be moving a bit
07:58:39 <Jenna> OF 1458
08:05:14 <ynpvisitor91> Jake, thanks for the E times
08:07:49 <Jake> you're welcome
08:09:29 <ynpvisitor91> I haven't minded the road construction a bit.... until last night. Should have done Dunraven
08:09:55 <Jake> yeah, I was wondering about that. we just made it in the back of the line as it was moving
08:10:03 <Jake> that happened twice yesterday!
08:10:30 <ynpvisitor91> I had the opposite, cars coming towards me and the guy in front of me didn't know that meant he should speed up so we could make the line
08:11:15 <ynpvisitor91> They practically flipped it to STOP when I came around the corner
08:11:29 <Jake> bummer, too bad 95% of the traffic doesn't have a clue what's going on...
08:12:29 <ynpvisitor91> and I followed this slooooooow person all the way to the N gate
08:12:36 <Jake> I impressed Diana with my driver identification skills last we were coming down from Mammoth to Gardiner in a line of 12 cars: "This car in front of us will be the only one to turn R on the employee road at the gate"
08:12:48 <Jake> aaaaandddd they were the only one ;)
08:13:29 <ynpvisitor91> haha! If the car in front of me had gone that way I was taking the arch!! As 2nd in line I could have beat them to the corner
08:13:35 <Jake> they were the only one in low gear going down the hill
08:13:55 <ynpvisitor91> the old Brake Light ID - good one
08:14:31 <Jake> you need a temporary flasher to put on the roof for passing in such situations
08:15:26 <ynpvisitor91> they didn't use their brights for animals either, very strange driver
08:16:13 <ynpvisitor91> no Lone Pine on GT .... yet.
08:18:06 <Jake> no note either about it being empty
08:18:36 <ynpvisitor91> I hope they get some afternoon sun and rainbows
08:28:23 <ynpvisitor91> ..
08:57:55 <Dave from B> Good night everyone!
09:02:33 <ynpvisitor91> ..
09:23:20 <ynpvisitor91> .
09:40:27 <Jake> OF 1640

09:54:42 <ynpvisitor32> Daisy still going here
10:03:01 <ynpvisitor91> .
10:20:55 <Kevin L> Missed it today, but I like the shorter BH intervals,
10:27:40 <Graham> another 3b Grand today, nice
10:30:19 <Jake> didn't see a 3rd, but I wasn't paying close attention
10:30:25 <Jake> should've been!
10:31:00 <Kevin L> Did you see BH?
10:31:16 <Jake> yes, BH was a 1 burst
10:31:54 <Kevin L> Was there a camop?
10:31:54 <Graham> 5h21m between Aurum bursts today Kevin
10:32:17 <Kevin L> Hadn't got tthat far yet Graham. Nice!
10:34:36 <Jake> hasn't been a camop since I've been on
10:34:52 <Jake> only briefly the cam moved twice at some point
10:44:14 <Jake> OF 1744
10:44:53 <Kevin L> Bummer. Not too many of us that can do it and I had set up stuff so I couldn't take it over today.
10:45:44 <Jake> oh, no worries. It was only a mid-day Beehive with perfect lighting ;)
10:47:31 <Kevin L> The real bummer is how boring my shifts were most of the week. Why couldn't that have gone Monday?
10:47:50 <ynpvisitor81> they are geysers
10:48:30 <Kevin L> Should be some more camops online soon, so hopefully we can cover daytime a bit better. Right now only 3 of us can cover it.
11:13:28 <Jake> Oblong?
11:17:26 <kcmule> need wind change for aurum
11:26:42 <Jake> that is Slot or Plate?
11:27:09 <Jake> looks like Slot location, but it is sustained like Plate
11:33:47 <ynpvisitor91> .
11:43:57 <Jake> SC 1843 ie
11:51:14 <Jake> bye all, get a Grand before dark
