01:28:21 <Dave from B> Hello everyone
01:28:38 <Betty> Morning Dave
01:29:21 <Dave from B> Shorter BH interval last night....yeah:)
01:34:28 <Graham> good chance for one in daylight
01:35:01 <Dave from B> Yep...and better to have later in the day when steam isn't so heavy
01:38:49 <Dave from B> Short interval between Lion series
01:50:41 <Betty> bbl
01:50:43 <Dave from B> Aurum 0833 per SteveO on GT
01:58:41 <ynpvisitor94> OF 0858
02:17:25 <Graham> Dome 0910 per Will
02:17:39 <Dave from B> Lion 0917
02:30:37 <Dave from B> Grotto ie?
02:31:03 <Dave from B> yep per GT
02:37:35 <Graham> guess the gazers will be headed to Grand shortly
02:38:20 <Dave from B> Might have time for breakfast first
02:39:01 <Graham> snow lodge or Inn?
02:41:06 <Dave from B> Lower Hams closed?
02:41:46 <Graham> yep
02:41:59 <Graham> think it closed end of SepTZ?
02:42:24 <Dave from B> Then, might be a cold breakfast instead
02:44:39 <Graham> or have the 0630 breakfast like i do in jan
02:46:37 <Dave from B> Before you head out to the basin?
02:47:25 <Graham> yep. get out around 0700 as its starting to get light
02:56:01 <ynpvisitor89> reports of bob's demise greatly exaggerated
02:56:46 <Dave from B> I'm still trying to finagle a way to get to OF or Norris before closing even for a day trip.
03:03:02 <ynpvisitor94> Daisy?
03:06:28 <ynpvisitor94> 1002 per Steve and Will on GT
03:10:27 <Dave from B> Time to head out. Enjoy football and gazing everyone
03:12:08 <ynpvisitor63> Do we have a clue to Bob's true nature, animal, vegetable or fecal?
03:17:24 <ynpvisitor94> Lion, ie,
03:18:03 <ynpvisitor94> 1014 per basin report,
03:30:29 <ynpvisitor63> OF & Grand
03:39:23 <ynpvisitor94> ?
03:40:18 <ynpvisitor94> Maybe a wee bit more training on important geysers is needed? Missing Grand.
04:00:32 <ynpvisitor49> Riverside ie
04:01:23 <ynpvisitor49> oh not Riverside
04:05:34 <ynpvisitor49> yes, Riverside
04:07:20 <lc> not Riverside
04:08:36 <ynpvisitor49> GT time was changed
04:09:29 <lc> ok, didn't see that
04:11:04 <ynpvisitor49> Lion 1110
04:43:54 <Craig> Its back!
04:44:02 <Craig> The smudge!
04:44:07 <Craig> Dome 1144 ie
04:44:08 <ynpvisitor49> Dome ie
04:44:11 <Betty> Bob
04:44:54 <Craig> Wow this Lion series is on 5 eruptions!
04:45:07 <Betty> maybe nps got too many questions why Bob had gone
04:46:13 <Craig> Probably!
04:46:51 <Craig> I'm predicting next Lion at 1206 +/- 15 minutes
04:59:54 <Jenna> OF way ie
05:01:53 <Craig> Groblong?
05:02:35 <Jenna> too early for Grand
05:02:53 <Craig> Grotto was seen at 9 this morning ie
05:03:13 <Craig> I'm placing my money on Oblong
05:18:22 <Betty> Lion
05:18:36 <Betty> only a blurb
05:24:25 <Betty> bad weather is creaping in
05:54:37 <ynpvisitor100> wonder if BH will show soon
05:57:53 <Betty> Dome ie
06:00:09 <ynpvisitor91> Well My guess on bh is 4 hours or more. Bases on the rather unfixed trend it seems to have of decreasing intervals and then increasing intervals. That is if the last was the short interval of the trend. Not sure it is ready for a 14 hour interval.
06:00:20 <ynpvisitor91> What does Betty think?
06:00:59 <Betty> hoping for it in 2 hrs
06:01:32 <ynpvisitor91> A double 17, that would be nice.
06:01:49 <Betty> yep :-)
06:02:26 <Betty> LC ie
06:02:26 <ynpvisitor91> Either way I will miss it as I have a meeting to go to.
06:03:45 <ynpvisitor100> it's Sunday
06:12:16 <ynpvisitor100> cool burst of SUN on the hill
06:13:48 <Betty> Solitary ie
06:18:13 <Craig> I would call Lion done with the series
06:18:56 <Betty> seems so
06:19:55 <ynpvisitor100> too bad the sun left for OF
06:20:41 <David A pdx> Greetings!!
06:21:21 <Betty> Hello David A pdx, not seen you in for a long time :-)
06:21:24 <ynpvisitor100> hmmm, not sure what cam op is doing...
06:22:09 <ynpvisitor100> must have taken a wave request
06:22:58 <David A pdx> Hi Betty! You're right... I haven't been on too much, until very recently. How're you doing?!
06:24:01 <Betty> I´m fine, thanks. Hope you are well too
06:24:40 <David A pdx> Oh yeah! doing well! just been busy and sidetracked!
06:25:19 <Betty> busy is good, only too busy is bad
06:26:22 <David A pdx> LOL! too true!
06:27:03 <ynpvisitor100> is that snow moving toward the people?
06:27:19 <Betty> could be
06:28:07 <Betty> looks really nasty now
06:28:07 <David A pdx> looks like it...
06:29:04 <ynpvisitor100> wow, what a difference 10 minutes make
06:29:59 <Betty> OF
06:30:04 <ynpvisitor100> Bob has the best view of OF
06:30:42 <Betty> defense!!!
06:30:47 <ynpvisitor100> ok then
06:30:54 <ynpvisitor100> no defense with this cam
06:31:00 <David A pdx> spotted lens syndrome...
06:31:02 <Betty> s...t
06:32:10 <ynpvisitor100> other than better close ups of Daisy or Grand, I think I liked the old cam better
06:32:35 <ynpvisitor100> it is going to be a LONG winter
06:32:45 <Betty> that´s really bad with no wiper
06:33:11 <ynpvisitor100> no way to wipe a sphere
06:33:33 <ynpvisitor100> only one person used to wipe anyway
06:33:43 <ynpvisitor100> yet at least it could be done
06:33:55 <Betty> wonder what a heater would help. drying the silicious water faster, so the crust can grow thicker ;-)
06:34:16 <ynpvisitor95> Ugh!
06:34:24 <ynpvisitor100> yes, ugh
06:34:41 <Betty> very ugh
06:35:34 <Betty> that is snow now
06:46:31 <David A pdx> i'm back! I see fresh snow in the background! it is that time of year already...
06:50:23 <ynpvisitor100> we missed Castle
06:51:05 <David A pdx> but, we may get to see SC! between drops!
06:51:05 <ynpvisitor100> Will must be bored if he is posted mid cycle Turbans
06:51:43 <Craig> Bob is gone!
06:51:55 <Craig> No wait hes not
06:52:23 <ynpvisitor100> he is inside….safe from snow
06:52:42 <Craig> How did that get in there?
06:52:46 <ynpvisitor80> Time for BHI
06:53:40 <Betty> Scotty beamed him iin. It´s Bob Beamon. Hahaha
06:54:34 <Craig> The Old Faithful Webcam, the final frontier
06:55:05 <Graham> just missed Aurum
06:56:16 <ynpvisitor100> we missed Castle too
06:56:49 <Betty> there it is
06:56:53 <Betty> was
06:56:56 <Betty> is
06:58:01 <Graham> looks like the E time should have been a minor
07:01:33 <ynpvisitor80> looks like the Amoeba cam
07:02:09 <ynpvisitor100> gasp, Will made a GT error...
07:02:17 <ynpvisitor100> or maybe VEC told him it was a major...
07:02:27 <ynpvisitor100> or maybe Castle is changing function…so many options
07:05:32 <ynpvisitor100> Oblong
07:05:40 <ynpvisitor100> such strange cam driving going on
07:16:06 <ynpvisitor100> strange Castle note now on GT
07:16:25 <ynpvisitor27> Bulger's hole from the wc also?????
07:17:44 <ynpvisitor80> post major on Castle means it was still in steam phase at 0900?
07:18:29 <Graham> not on gt 27
07:18:59 <Graham> presume the E castle time was based on water duration
07:19:42 <Graham> would not be in steam phase that late
07:19:57 <ynpvisitor100> I thought E times came from VEC
07:20:05 <ynpvisitor100> you cannot approximate an E time
07:20:07 <ynpvisitor27> they do
07:20:20 <ynpvisitor80> What would make will think it was post major that late?
07:20:41 <ynpvisitor100> he just entered that time, after taking the major off the early E time.
07:20:42 <ynpvisitor27> it is pretty easy to tell post minor/major
07:20:55 <ynpvisitor100> thought the post was strange
07:20:57 <ynpvisitor27> minor has big frequent splashes
07:21:17 <ynpvisitor27> major has fine mist
07:21:18 <ynpvisitor80> thanks 27
07:21:37 <ynpvisitor100> also surprised he did not change the early E time to minor
07:22:03 <ynpvisitor27> well it was post major so that would make the early time not a minor
07:22:17 <ynpvisitor27> probably an error somewhere along the line
07:22:34 <ynpvisitor65> Got to love the dome
07:23:17 <ynpvisitor100> could not be a major at 0514 and then again at 1332
07:23:36 <Graham> sometimes there are long minors that are hard to tell on the electronic sensor
07:23:55 <ynpvisitor27> correct but it could not be a minor also as it was observed post major
07:24:02 <ynpvisitor100> why would he post that note?
07:24:10 <ynpvisitor27> so probably the VEC made an error on the E time
07:24:38 <ynpvisitor27> because that is what he observed and just wanted to make a record of it
07:24:45 <ynpvisitor27> is my guess
07:25:20 <ynpvisitor100> he extrapolated on his note, he must be on here too
07:26:47 <Graham> probably should not have said post-major since nobody saw the early eruption
07:27:06 <Graham> it wasnt splashy i uess
07:27:16 <ynpvisitor100> Kitt is still there?
07:27:41 <ynpvisitor100> maybe she does not have school tomorrow
07:28:05 <ynpvisitor95> What is the last day the park is open?
07:28:18 <ynpvisitor100> 11/2
07:28:22 <ynpvisitor27> 100 if you think there is an error why dont you call the VEC and figure things out
07:28:43 <ynpvisitor100> I said the post was odd
07:28:45 <ynpvisitor100> not error
07:28:47 <ynpvisitor100> Will
07:28:53 <Graham> the E time is what you would expect, 13h post confirmed major
07:29:28 <ynpvisitor100> Graham said it should not be listed as post major, not me
07:30:31 <Graham> unless someone saw the major
07:31:16 <ynpvisitor100> Well they just saw the major at 1332
07:31:23 <Graham> it was likely a very short maj-maj interval (unlikely in my opinion) or a minor with unusual afterplay
07:31:56 <ynpvisitor100> why not a minor at 0514 and now the major?
07:32:46 <Graham> that's what i said 100, with reported unusual afterplay that wasn't the typical post-minor splashy play
07:33:45 <ynpvisitor100> onward to BH and Grand
07:37:30 <Graham> its a geyser, it does what it wants
07:37:47 <ynpvisitor95> Sort of like a teenager.
07:37:49 <ynpvisitor100> agreed
08:03:55 <Graham> bengals-Jags tied game, both scored in OT, unusual
08:04:15 <Craig> Just saw that
08:04:18 <ynpvisitor100> seems to like to snow for OF eruptions
08:04:29 <Craig> Snow!?
08:04:46 <Craig> Ack! No! I thought it could be avoided!
08:05:01 <ynpvisitor100> yes, that is snow
08:06:14 <ynpvisitor100> and disgruntled tourists
08:06:48 <Craig> I can almost hear the grumbling
08:06:54 <ynpvisitor100> did OF erupt? people are leaving...
08:07:46 <David A pdx> it does look like a lot of steam around that area...
08:09:27 <ynpvisitor100> nothing on GT yet
08:11:12 <ynpvisitor100> OF is behind a droplet
08:14:51 <ynpvisitor100> blue sky
08:15:03 <Jenna> hopefully the snow is on it's way out then
08:20:10 <Graham> its time for more snow Jenna
08:20:44 <ynpvisitor100> next few weeks are going to be nice, no snow
08:21:43 <Graham> :(
08:22:23 <ynpvisitor100> :0
08:23:36 <ynpvisitor100> :)
08:26:11 <Jenna> so you want snow Graham and you don't 100?
08:26:40 <ynpvisitor100> Graham always wants snow as he lives somewhere where it hardly snows
08:26:55 <ynpvisitor100> and yes, me, NO SNOW
08:27:55 <Jenna> I'm with you, no snow
08:27:59 <Graham> need good snowpack
08:28:17 <Graham> or fires next year
08:28:36 <Jenna> ok the park can have all the snow it wants, but only within the park boundaries lol
08:28:40 <ynpvisitor100> no direct correlation
08:28:46 <ynpvisitor100> like this year for instance
08:29:15 <ynpvisitor100> summer rain kept fires away
08:29:30 <Graham> Mauren likes snow too
08:30:06 <Graham> or Maureen
08:50:05 <kcmule> daisy 15:49
09:01:19 <Graham> oh no, hawks losing to the cowboys
09:01:41 <Graham> and what happened ot the bills?
09:13:00 <kcmule> grumble
09:29:33 <Graham> Will posted Turbam 1618ie
09:36:30 <kcmule> OF 16:36
09:40:12 <ynpvisitor58> Grand or Bee first?
09:49:26 <kcmule> 1644 on last turban
09:53:54 <Eric> We get a little snow on the dome?
09:56:19 <Graham> so we can forget about Grand on the next Turban since its a D
10:00:18 <Eric> I would guess BHI first...
10:03:12 <Eric> haha
10:03:12 <kcmule> grand
10:03:15 <ynpvisitor100> wrong guess
10:03:15 <Eric> Grand
10:03:18 <Eric> No delay
10:03:37 <Eric> That was under the assumption that we actually had a Turban Delay
10:03:38 <ynpvisitor100> wow, that is a lot of steam
10:03:58 <Eric> That was a strong initial
10:06:25 <Eric> hey Graham, what is the longest duration you have seen for Grand?
10:07:01 <ynpvisitor100> over 12 minutes
10:08:36 <ynpvisitor100> how is it still called D1?
10:08:52 <Eric> haha, good question
10:10:15 <ynpvisitor100> spikes finally, nice
10:10:24 <Eric> Maybe D means something different to Will then us?
10:10:35 <ynpvisitor100> I guess
10:11:04 <ynpvisitor100> glad the sun came out for them
10:12:05 <Eric> All that steam blowing toward the cam...hard to tell what is happening
10:12:17 <ynpvisitor100> shortest Grand I have seen was only 7 minutes. Thought for sure we could get a 2nd, yet it just ended.
10:12:31 <ynpvisitor100> no pause yet
10:13:08 <Eric> I am not sure I could tell the end of 1st and 2nd with all the steam
10:13:25 <ynpvisitor100> well Will is there to tell us what really happens
10:13:36 <ynpvisitor100> hope they get BH before dark now
10:13:52 <Eric> I wouldn't be surprised if we have BHI right now
10:14:57 <Eric> I think Grand is done...
10:15:22 <ynpvisitor100> 13 minutes now
10:16:14 <ynpvisitor100> no BHI
10:16:45 <Eric> Doesn't look like it
10:19:10 <kcmule> oblong ie
10:19:36 <kcmule> 3h 12m interval, approx
10:22:30 <ynpvisitor100> did Kitt and SteveO skip Grand?
10:27:55 <kcmule> 1725 on riverside
10:39:34 <Michael> Hi folks. I'm mostly going to be afk, but hope to hear if BHI gets going.
10:39:59 <Michael> I hope that doesn't count as excessive mooching.
11:03:27 <ynpvisitor100> OF
11:03:37 <ynpvisitor100> and Bob
11:27:00 <kcmule> dome ie
11:30:01 <Michael> Makes a pretty thick cloud this evening.
11:32:01 <Michael> Oh well. couldn't get much to erupt by lurking here. signing off again.
11:40:57 <Michael> Looks like Daisy 18:40ie.
11:45:57 <ynpvisitor34> Anyone know who the lone BH watcher might be?
11:47:51 <Michael> No idea here.
12:01:26 <Graham> hello. no bee yet? i figured it would go on my drive home
12:02:09 <Graham> bad football day all round, hawks don't beat the cowboys, bills and redskins lose, what is the world coming to?
12:04:35 <Michael> Here the defenses and special teams stumbled to a 37-37 tie.
12:05:16 <Graham> yeah, we missed the first quarter of the redskins game to watch that
12:05:32 <Graham> probably a good thing really
12:07:46 <Michael> I'm surprised they wouldn't show you the 'Skins game in its entirety. Though it sounds like the Red wasn't rocking...
12:08:18 <Graham> i was in Richmond, so part way to Carolina
12:18:42 <ynpvisitor100> is there such a thing as a good football day?
12:20:25 <ynpvisitor95> Packer won. Tried real hard to lose but they couldn't do it.
12:21:03 <Michael> A good day would be: Teams representing cities I like win, no-one gets injured, and I have time to watch some of it.
12:21:19 <ynpvisitor100> teams try to lose now?
12:21:48 <ynpvisitor95> Packers seem to.
12:21:59 <ynpvisitor95> Good fight on Saturday night.
12:22:01 <ynpvisitor100> too bad BH is not visiting before dark
12:22:13 <ynpvisitor100> bosing?
12:22:17 <ynpvisitor100> boxing?
12:22:41 <ynpvisitor95> No, Nascar. All drivers vs keslowski.
12:23:33 <ynpvisitor100> lights on
12:23:37 <Michael> Before, during, or after the race?
12:24:10 <ynpvisitor95> Kind of during, but mostly after the race.
12:28:09 <Michael> Oh well. Not one of my luckier geyser evenings.
12:36:12 <Graham> goodnight all
12:36:43 <kcmule> nite
15:47:43 <ynpvisitor100> A hot pixel or a star in the upper center of the image. I would actually prefer a four o'clock coyote
