23:41:52 <Will B> otherwise it has been dry for my shift
23:42:24 <Graham> thats good. have never seen F&M in the snow
23:42:42 <Graham> sitting there at night in the rain is not so nice
23:43:04 <Graham> you planning to come back next weekend?
23:43:26 <Will B> I would prefer snow over rain while out in the basin.

00:47:42 <Graham> morning kc
00:52:31 <kcmule> mornin
01:22:07 <kcmule> another f&m regular cycle in progress
01:24:29 <kcmule> and grand
01:51:39 <ynpvisitor78> A BISON!
01:52:52 <ynpvisitor78> omg.... they are chasing the bison!
02:04:11 <Jenna> Oblong?
02:05:16 <kcmule> would be a little early
02:10:15 <kcmule> castle pred. 13:30+/-45
02:26:08 <ynpvisitor78> .
02:32:49 <ynpvisitor79> reminder to self: never wear florescent yellow (?) in front of a live cam.
02:34:19 <Kevin L> In highway dept we call those targets.
02:34:41 <ynpvisitor79> Hard to look beyond that color. Shocking on cam.
02:35:11 <ynpvisitor79> It just pulls your eye right to it.
02:36:16 <ynpvisitor79> Probably a good color to put on a kid to keep an eye on them though.
02:37:12 <Kevin L> Seem to have a lot of bright colors this year.
02:46:05 <ynpvisitor79> Riverside ?
02:46:45 <ynpvisitor79> Timing is about right.
02:57:55 <ynpvisitor79> OF 0957 ns
02:59:38 <ynpvisitor32> a super-short
03:17:42 <ynpvisitor15> Dark clouds out there
03:22:39 <Kevin L> F&M was not lonesome last night.
03:23:24 <ynpvisitor15> Yes, but it likes everyone to leave so it can do something special
03:23:38 <Graham> hope F&M don't go while Will is working his last shift
03:24:07 <Kevin L> That would be cruel.
03:24:12 <ynpvisitor15> Yes, it has been a hard year to catch it!
03:25:13 <Kevin L> Hope he get a nice one with lots of rainbows.
03:25:15 <ynpvisitor32> Daisy 1025
03:25:18 <Kevin L> Daisy
03:25:43 <Graham> not as bad as last year, last few intervals have been good
03:27:05 <ynpvisitor15> Just nocturnal & sneaky - erupting in the hour between watches.
03:30:38 <Graham> actually 50% nocturnal this season so not too bad for it
03:45:50 <ynpvisitor34> No rainbows to be had today in the UGB.
03:46:43 <Graham> could be some nice blue tho
03:47:45 <ynpvisitor44> F&M has blue?
03:48:26 <ynpvisitor15> Indy???
03:48:43 <ynpvisitor15> I think so
03:49:27 <ynpvisitor15> Close to the start
03:49:34 <ynpvisitor15> ding
03:49:35 <ynpvisitor15> ding
03:49:37 <ynpvisitor15> ding
03:49:58 <Jenna> yay
03:49:59 <ynpvisitor97> Sure does look like it.
03:51:14 <ynpvisitor98> thanks for text, do we have a cam driver?
03:51:57 <ynpvisitor98> much better
03:52:44 <Jenna> think it'll go before my lunch in 8 minutes?
03:53:11 <ynpvisitor98> no
03:53:16 <Kevin L> Lunch?
03:53:33 <Jenna> yes, it's a meal I eat at 12 lol
03:53:41 <ynpvisitor98> sacrifice
03:54:05 <ynpvisitor97> I see the number of watchers is not getting bigger.
03:54:11 <ynpvisitor98> photographer headed the wrong way
03:54:25 <ynpvisitor98> people stopped him
03:54:34 <ynpvisitor98> still walking away, fool
03:55:13 <Kevin L> Of course the last OF would have to have been a short.
03:55:13 <Jenna-lunch> enjoy!
03:55:28 <ynpvisitor98> oh no
03:56:07 <Kevin L> That is why they invented fasting Jenna.
03:56:43 <ynpvisitor98> thought SteveO was in basin, no post from him on BHI
03:57:30 <Graham> maybe F&M is eventful
03:57:36 <Graham> not many ppl about
03:57:44 <ynpvisitor98> nothing listed, yet maybe
03:58:45 <ynpvisitor98> good job OF
03:59:45 <ynpvisitor98> wow, that was barely tall at all
03:59:51 <ynpvisitor98> mini oF
04:00:10 <ynpvisitor98> I can hear it now…when I was young, OF was much taller...
04:00:24 <Graham> 1258 start? i looked away
04:00:34 <ynpvisitor98> 1058 here
04:01:00 <Graham> ty
04:01:03 <ynpvisitor98> near end of the minute if I am not on delay
04:03:48 <ynpvisitor98> BH
04:03:50 <Kevin L> Timing is everything.
04:03:55 <Graham> BH 1103
04:04:41 <ynpvisitor98> is that Will?
04:04:56 <ynpvisitor98> cold day for a BH shower
04:04:59 <ynpvisitor97> Wow, this is a Saturday in August?
04:05:16 <ynpvisitor98> fall came early to Yellowstone this year
04:05:29 <ynpvisitor97> Seems extra tall.
04:05:45 <ynpvisitor98> I was just thinking the opposite
04:07:04 <ynpvisitor98> very nice eruption
04:08:24 <ynpvisitor97> Now i can go do other things.
04:08:31 <ynpvisitor98> always over too soon though
04:41:47 <Graham> Lion is very splashy, may go before dark :)
05:15:05 <Graham> Dep
05:32:50 <Jenna> ..
05:35:39 <ynpvisitor23> cloud down basin...
05:36:13 <Graham> I think Grotto is still going
05:36:26 <Graham> OF 1236
05:38:27 <Graham> another short
05:44:11 <ynpvisitor23> all ready for your trip Graham?
05:46:12 <Graham> started to pull things out but not ready - emotionally i am ready :)
05:48:11 <Graham> long range weather forecast is pretty good, no travel delays epected
05:50:02 <ynpvisitor23> should be past the bad weather by the time you arrive
05:50:13 <ynpvisitor23> will make your night sits at F & M easier.
05:51:18 <Graham> i know, rainy night sits are no fun
05:51:32 <Graham> hard enough to sit out in the rain in daylight
05:51:58 <Graham> Will has snow flurries this morning, they are better
05:53:56 <Kevin L> Not liking snow flurries this early.
05:54:56 <Graham> don't worry Kevin, they wont get to Vegas
05:55:37 <Kevin L> I am worried about mid September in the park.
05:56:30 <Graham> will make Aurum look extra special
05:57:38 <Kevin L> I can handle the weather. Don't really want to leave the munchkin out in stuff like that all day.
05:59:50 <ynpvisitor3> .
06:02:33 <Graham> I just missed Lion, oh well
06:03:00 <ynpvisitor23> bad driver
06:03:18 <ynpvisitor23> Kevin, no winter clothes?
06:05:18 <Graham> Daisy 1305
06:06:32 <ynpvisitor23> maybe it will be nice long Lion series today
06:06:57 <Graham> not 1 and done
06:07:20 <ynpvisitor23> or 2 and done like yesterday, twice
06:10:21 <Graham> we need another series of 35
06:15:07 <ynpvisitor23> that might pull a few people away from F & M
06:47:20 <ynpvisitor3> .
06:47:36 <Graham> OF 137
06:47:40 <Graham> 1347
07:12:50 <Jenna> Lion 1412

07:15:22 <Graham> Castle 1414ie
07:39:54 <micah's dad> Not selling much ice cream today, I bet
07:40:40 <Jenna> probably not
07:45:05 <ynpvisitor89> Grand soon?
07:45:22 <Graham> good day to be working the ice crem counter
07:46:03 <ynpvisitor89> day goes by quicker when you are busy though
07:46:22 <Graham> and more tips
07:46:48 <ynpvisitor89> tips?
07:47:15 <Graham> dont they get any?
07:47:32 <ynpvisitor89> not sure, would have to ask Micah
07:51:47 <Mara> ...yep, it's that kind of day isn't it
07:52:28 <Graham> no Micah reports today, guess hes working or sleeping for tonights watch
07:53:08 <micah's dad> He was working this morning.
07:53:18 <micah's dad> Another pine marten in the storage room.
07:53:50 <micah's dad> He says he wants to catch it bare handed.
07:53:50 <Mara> Ooh, he told me about that. Fun times.
07:54:46 <micah's dad> We may have to then call him Micah nine fingers.
08:07:21 <ynpvisitor3> .
08:07:33 <ynpvisitor3> volcano-cam
08:18:37 <ynpvisitor26> Lion 1518
08:25:16 <Graham> OF 1524
08:26:22 <Graham> another short
08:27:08 <ynpvisitor59> Afternoon everyone!
08:27:24 <Graham> its been alternating long/short all day
08:28:03 <Dave from B> Mara, are you awake?
08:28:37 <Kevin L> Hey Dave
08:28:38 <Mara> yes, yes I am
08:29:04 <Kevin L> Yea. Las Vegas just went ahead in the Little League World Series.
08:29:25 <Dave from B> Mara, I wanted to personally thank you for your FB post about Paul and ALS. My father died of ALS over 15 years ago. Your post was very well said.
08:29:46 <Dave from B> Grand 1530ie
08:29:51 <Graham> 1529
08:30:05 <Kevin L> Paul was a very special person.
08:30:06 <Dave from B> Yea...I get to see a Grand
08:32:13 <Mara> Thanks Dave. I felt it necessary to do a little more than just the challenge and try to put my feelings into words.
08:34:01 <Dave from B> Many people feel like you, including myself, that the gazers are almost as much fun as the geysers themselves. Becca and I laugh and smile throughout the year about things that have happened on our YNP trips.
08:52:41 <Graham> so now there are two 2b Grands on GT. pretty sad
08:53:27 <Mara> Burst average not looking so great.
08:53:32 <Graham> nope
08:53:54 <Graham> so I am now hoping that F&M wait for better weather tomorrow, although its a long wait now
08:56:16 <Mara> I believe Micah and Demetri are down there now; sure can't be much fun.
08:56:19 <Graham> I was wanting the intervals to stay short for a month
08:57:20 <Graham> sounds like a good day to test out the waterproof gear
08:57:43 <Graham> and to find that it works, rather than the alternative
08:58:41 <Graham> headed out, good luck with some more Lions
08:59:36 <Mara> good luck with that rain gear~
09:07:05 <Mara> there's Micah
09:09:39 <Mara> Guess he's gone up to GH instead.
09:16:34 <lt> Riverside?
09:21:10 <ynpvisitor49> Riverside ie
09:34:24 <Dave from B> ..
10:05:38 <ynpvisitor49> tough wind direction on the cam :(
15:07:12 <ynpvisitor35> Looks dark out there
