00:17:18 <Graham> some white out there
00:25:52 <Graham> I see GT handled the time change just fine. Would have been fun to have a 0159 MDT OF followed by a 59m interval to 0158 MST, but it didnt happen :( Could have had things like that when Plume was active.
00:27:33 <Graham> last full day of park opening is the longest day of the year ... bonus!
00:34:40 <ynpvisitor51> Lion 0634ie
00:35:00 <Dave from B> Morning all
00:37:21 <Graham> morning
00:40:07 <Graham> how was Beccas soccer tournament?
00:40:51 <Dave from B> They frinished 4th. Weather was great for October. 2.5 weeks and then basketball starts.
00:41:34 <Graham> thats nice, was she happy? 4th is good
00:41:51 <Graham> so you have 2 weeks to rest up then runaroud returns :)
00:42:13 <Graham> at least they play b-ball indoors for the winter
00:42:24 <Dave from B> Team hadn't been to state in 4 years so it is good. However, they lost in a shootout in the semifinals to the team that won the championship so that is disappointing
00:42:41 <Dave from B> Yes, it will be nice to be indoors watching basketball
00:43:16 <Dave from B> Becca gets her drivers license Dec 10, so taxi service will change a bit after that.
00:45:30 <Graham> then you will be sitting at home wondering where she is. but thats good, gives you all options
00:47:42 <Graham> lion was pretty long, could have been initial
00:47:44 <Dave from B> She still has a lot to learn as far as driving is concerned. Driving on icy roads with not a lot of experience worries me.
00:48:38 <Graham> i am sure she will be well advised on that
00:48:59 <Dave from B> haha
00:50:22 <Dave from B> Uner 12 hour BH interval...that's a shocker
00:51:24 <Dave from B> 8 of last 10 Grand intervals probably under 6:08
00:51:59 <Michael> I stop paying attention for enough weeks, and things get really active...
00:52:10 <Dave from B> Morning Michael
00:52:32 <Dave from B> I think the BH short interval is an anomaly
00:52:50 <Michael> Good morning, Dave.
00:54:24 <Michael> I sort of think so too. There are enough eyes and ears and cameras on Behive that someone would have caught a short interval sooner if it had a lot of them.
00:54:47 <Graham> watch grand go to 5-6h intervals tomorrow and 2b average
00:55:31 <Michael> I take it today is closing day at the UGB?
00:55:57 <Graham> yep
01:24:26 <ynpvisitor79> ding
01:24:28 <ynpvisitor79> ding
01:24:30 <ynpvisitor79> ding
01:24:33 <ynpvisitor79> ding
01:24:54 <Dave from B> Thanks 79
01:25:05 <Michael> Wonder why I only head one "ding"
01:25:27 <Michael> Good thing one was enough
01:26:35 <kcmule> awake at 7am, might as well have a look..
01:27:20 <Michael> Just steam and snowflakes.
01:28:23 <Graham> nice
01:29:40 <Graham> 0723 start per cc
01:33:55 <Dave from B> Morning kc
01:36:55 <kcmule> mornin
01:40:01 <Graham> thats a big BHI
01:49:51 <Dave from B> Lion 0749
01:51:25 <Dave from B> interval another indication that last Lion was probably the initial
01:59:21 <Kevin L> Looks like my timing is good as usual.
01:59:59 <Michael> Yes, yes it is.
01:21:50 <Dave from B> Mornig Kevin...you can go back to bed now since you missed all the action.
01:22:20 <Kevin L> :p
01:24:39 <Dave from B> What time is the race today?
01:24:49 <Kevin L> Noon my time.
01:25:45 <Kevin L> I am trying to figure out my OTA TV this morning. Not sure what is going on. Channels are not where they were supposed to be and the TV info does not match.
01:27:28 <Dave from B> That sounds like fun
01:30:53 <Kevin L> I used to just push a button on the show I wanted and it would record it. Not sure what is going on. Channel 21 just got GET TV a month ago, now it is on 3. I really don't understand that move.
01:57:19 <ynpvisitor30> ..
02:35:24 <ynpvisitor30> .
02:35:25 <ynpvisitor30> .
02:38:44 <Dave from B> Everyone must be eating breakfast
02:52:53 <Betty> morning Dave from B
02:53:29 <Betty> How was the 3rd place game?
02:54:51 <Betty> we are in the Grand window I think
03:05:21 <Dave from B> Hi, Betty. Becc'a team lost 2-0 but she finally got to play. She played half the game.
03:05:44 <Dave from B> Only losing 4 to graduation. Team should be better next year
03:07:27 <Betty> Lots of time till next year to get prepared :-)
03:07:48 <Dave from B> 18 days until basketball tryouts begin!
03:08:05 <Betty> yay, cool
03:08:38 <Betty> youth was the best time of my life -sigh-
03:09:08 <Dave from B> Yes, teenagers stay busy
03:09:34 <Dave from B> Sorry, but I have to leave for church. Have a good evening Betty. I'll be back tomorrow!:)
03:09:50 <Betty> that´s good, so no time for doing something stupid
03:10:03 <Betty> see ya Dave
03:10:14 <Dave from B> I don't know about that but we are trying to keep an eye on her!:)
03:10:24 <Betty> haha
03:12:32 <DavidApdx> Good morning!!
03:12:38 <DavidApdx> yuh12
03:12:47 <DavidApdx> the cat again...
03:17:15 <Betty> Morning DavidApdx
03:18:01 <DavidApdx> Morning Betty! I see I have missed several good ones this a.m. already!
03:18:22 <Betty> me too, bummer
03:23:15 <Betty> Good morning Mara
03:23:29 <Mara> morning~
03:23:46 <Betty> not in wonderland for closing day?
03:24:30 <Mara> I used my one unexcused absence in my physics lecture to go last weekend.
03:24:43 <Betty> haha
03:25:14 <Mara> Yellowstone's lovely but not worth a lowered grade :)
03:25:40 <Betty> right, I know you were last weekend. how silly of me ;-)
03:41:31 <Betty> Dome ie
03:42:32 <DavidApdx> cool! thanks
03:46:45 <DavidApdx> In case anyone is interested in photos from Kilauea: http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/multimedia/index.php?newSearch=true&display=custom&volcano=1&resultsPerPage=20
03:47:51 <Betty> Grand?
03:48:36 <Betty> looks like steam from that area
03:48:59 <DavidApdx> definitely
03:50:21 <Eric> morning everyone
03:50:32 <Betty> whoohoo, cam op, a bit to the left please
03:50:42 <Betty> Mirning Eric
03:50:51 <Betty> Morning ;-)
03:51:00 <Eric> Mirning Betty :-D
03:51:07 <Betty> lol
03:52:37 <Eric> Glad to see the webcam is still up today.
03:55:04 <Eric> Any more conversation or observations of North Dwarf Since Friday?
03:55:16 <Betty> though we miss Grand at the moment
03:55:29 <Betty> no, nothing yet
03:55:41 <Betty> I did not see it again
03:55:57 <Eric> Thanks Betty...bummer about missing Grand :-(
03:56:13 <Eric> I really dislike this zoom/direction the camera is at right now
03:56:46 <Eric> Ahh, someone is driving now...thats good at least.
03:57:23 <DavidApdx> there's alittle splashing in the scissors area
03:57:51 <Mara> Don't think we missed Grand. Will probably would have logged it.
03:58:19 <DavidApdx> looks like Sawmill i.e.
03:58:25 <Betty> hope you´re right Mara
03:58:40 <Eric> Anybody know why none of the dwarfs are listed on GT?
03:59:08 <Eric> That was probably oblong Betty....on GT at 1046
03:59:31 <Eric> along with a 1046 Turban
03:59:33 <Betty> oh, great.
03:59:39 <Mara> they're listed collectively as "The Dwarfs"
03:59:41 <Betty> thx
04:04:10 <Eric> Thanks Mara...that is too bad they are not separate.
04:04:30 <Eric> I did just log our Friday observation as "The Dwarfs"
04:04:51 <Eric> Riverside
04:05:55 <Mara> Seems there's a lot of confusion as to what is named what in the Dwarfs...
04:06:31 <Eric> I agree with that Mara. Setting it straight (Agreeing) on GT would help with some of that.
04:06:55 <Eric> I personally think it's pretty obvious that the really red ringed geyser is "Red Dwarf"
04:07:29 <Eric> There is also a hole that is pretty far north, which I believe we saw erupt on Friday is "North Dwarf"
04:07:43 <Betty> Morning Jenna
04:08:10 <Eric> If your interested Mara, I put the link to the video capture of the eruption in the entr
04:08:12 <Eric> entry
04:08:28 <Eric> I would be interested in more opinions :-)
04:09:21 <Eric> 1108 Turban
04:09:41 <Jenna> hi Betty
04:10:59 <Eric> morning jenna
04:11:29 <Eric> Dang...I nailed Riverside :-) 1104 from the field too.
04:14:27 <Jenna> hi Eric
04:16:18 <Eric> OF 1116
04:18:09 <Eric> So today is the last day we will see people, other than Rangers?
04:19:43 <Mara> Until later in December, yup. :c
04:20:20 <Eric> Come on camop....keep Grand in the picture
04:20:35 <Eric> Thank you
04:22:43 <Eric> Possible grand in about 3 minutes
04:23:28 <Mara> quadruple burst, let's do it
04:24:23 <Eric> haha
04:26:19 <ynpvisitor81> Lol
04:28:40 <Eric> I assume another Turban
04:29:12 <Betty> my cam is very choppy today
04:29:25 <Eric> Me too Betty
04:30:46 <DavidApdx> uh, you mean a bit spasmodic?!?!
04:30:56 <Eric> haha
04:31:02 <Betty> hehe
04:31:23 <DavidApdx> couldnn't resist...
04:31:27 <Eric> It would be Grand if is wasn't so depressing
04:32:08 <Eric> Still no Turban time from Will
04:32:12 <Mara> puns, puns everywheree
04:33:09 <DavidApdx> no lion, in fact
04:33:41 <DavidApdx> but, i suppose we should quit, while we're ahead...
04:35:23 <DavidApdx> seriously, it does look like Sprinkler ie
04:39:34 <ynpvisitor81> Of steam?
04:39:46 <Mara> LC ie
04:41:16 <Mara> Dazzy?
04:41:30 <Betty> yup
05:00:17 <ynpvisitor72> Turban 1152 per Will
05:00:50 <Mara> 'lo Graham
05:01:05 <Betty> hey Graham
05:01:31 <Graham> hey there, back for a bit
05:02:45 <Eric> Gotta go...enjoy Grand!
05:03:07 <Eric> quad burst for closing day :-)

05:32:01 <Betty> LC
05:51:40 <Betty> hi Micah
05:54:04 <Betty> any new blog soon?
05:55:36 <ynpvisitor64> So is BH doing 12's? or have you aready had this discussion today?
05:56:44 <Micah> We'll see betty, still recovering frommy crash on friday
05:56:48 <Betty> no, not yet :-)
05:57:10 <Betty> ugh! Are you ok??
05:57:30 <Graham> sorry to hear about that Micah, how you feeling?
05:57:50 <Micah> Sore, dinged, up and my tongue hurts. Bit it on impact. But I'm surviving.
05:58:21 <Micah> https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=786998761357227&set=a.130093703714406.20699.100001413319851&type=1&theater
05:58:30 <Graham> so no Micah yelling now? wow what would an F&M be like?
05:58:30 <Micah> The camry is done unfortunately
05:58:54 <Graham> i saw that, nasty. glad you were not hurt more
05:59:15 <Micah> Yeah. I thought the engine was going to be in my lap
05:59:29 <Micah> luckily it wasn't.
06:00:26 <Graham> yep. hope you get back to normal quickly
06:01:04 <Betty> wow. looks horrible, Micah. Glad nothing worse happened :-(
06:05:10 <Graham> will you be able to go back to school tomorrow?
06:05:32 <Micah> yeah. I'm not immobile or anything. just dinged up.
06:06:34 <Graham> good, bet your bruises look good
06:08:03 <Micah> actually not a lot of discoloeration.
06:08:09 <Micah> wow I butchered that spelling
06:08:21 <Micah> Nothing too visible. Mostly deep bruises.
06:08:51 <ynpvisitor64> You did hit your head, so spelling may not be your best.
06:09:00 <Micah> I did not actually
06:09:44 <Micah> My head probably missed the windshield by a hair. I was probably stopped by the steering wheel. Which hurt in itself.
06:12:33 <Graham> switching topics, whats up with Grand?
06:13:09 <Mara> Probably pulled a long overnight. Will said this pool looked somewhat decent when I got off the phone with him.
06:31:05 <ynpvisitor93> Interesting wind pattern down basin
06:48:02 <ynpvisitor70> Pretty nice day considering the gloom and doom forecast
06:49:24 <Graham> yep. peeps on the boardwalk have looked cold tho
06:50:14 <ynpvisitor70> barely above freezing, if it is.
06:50:39 <ynpvisitor70> Oblong?
06:52:15 <Graham> Turban per Will
06:54:13 <Graham> long wait at Grand today
06:54:57 <ynpvisitor80> nice, someone just posted a picture of a penis to the geyser gazers group
06:55:01 <ynpvisitor70> must have gone long after the under 6 hour one
06:55:03 <ynpvisitor80> reported to fb
06:55:52 <ynpvisitor70> deleted, hope that does not happen again
07:01:44 <ynpvisitor70> Graham quit? Who is driving?
07:04:46 <ynpvisitor70> is that Grand?
07:09:00 <ynpvisitor70> left please
07:19:25 <DavidApdx> back again!
07:19:42 <Betty> wb
07:19:55 <DavidApdx> thanks! guess I missed the excitement on fb...
07:20:30 <DavidApdx> did we miss grand?
07:20:59 <ynpvisitor70> no post yet, though cam is not moving now
07:21:10 <Betty> Will did not post it yet
07:21:32 <ynpvisitor70> I meant we will not see it
07:21:51 <DavidApdx> too bad
07:22:34 <ynpvisitor70> I hope Will gets it soon though, check out Turbans on GT, he has been there a LONG time
07:23:55 <ynpvisitor70> wrong way
07:27:05 <DavidApdx> well, i'm signing off again for a bit. bbl
07:27:15 <Betty> 15 Turbans yet
07:29:05 <Betty> OF
07:29:52 <ynpvisitor70> maybe op will go to Grand after this
07:30:30 <Betty> lets hope so
07:31:17 <ynpvisitor72> no grand on that turban
07:31:35 <Betty> not yet
07:38:34 <Betty> Daisy?
07:38:46 <Betty> yep
07:41:23 <ynpvisitor70> still a mystery why we are so far away from Grand...
07:41:42 <ynpvisitor70> There we go
07:41:47 <Betty> yay
07:42:01 <ynpvisitor70> Grand 1441
07:42:19 <Betty> 4 bursts is minimum for that long wait :-)
07:42:30 <ynpvisitor70> Will would love that
07:42:52 <Betty> everybody would live that :-)
07:43:00 <Betty> love :-p
07:46:53 <ynpvisitor37> May be some minor ongoing training issues for new cam ops?
07:48:07 <ynpvisitor70> wow, so bizarre
07:49:24 <ynpvisitor70> glad we can see it from afar at least
07:52:22 <kcmule> hello
07:52:37 <Betty> hi kc
08:00:39 <Betty> so they got only a 1 burst
08:05:24 <steve> much better weather than the 70% snow predicted.
08:06:12 <Betty> Hello steve
08:07:05 <steve> hello. I should be out there. Sigh...
08:08:54 <Betty> why are you not? :-)
08:10:15 <steve> I was working until friday night, and from my house it's a 7 hour drive. It didn't seem like a good choice when I saw the weather report.
08:11:22 <Betty> ah, ok. But you will be there again in winter?
08:13:18 <steve> I wasn't planning on it, but I've been trying to see if I can fit a trip in. Its more difficult this winter as the bombarda don't go to West Yellowstone, only Gardner and Flagg Ranch
08:14:27 <Betty> where is Flagg Ranch? Never heard of it.
08:16:20 <steve> Its in the area between Grand Teton and Yellowstone. Most is goverment land in some form but there are pieces that have been in priviate hands since, well, after Yellowstone was formed but before Grand Teton was formed.
08:17:24 <steve> So tis a year around area like some of the spots in Island Park Idaho.
08:17:43 <Betty> thanks for that information. My next trip will be next year in August
08:18:04 <Betty> I always stay in West
08:19:21 <steve> I like West in the spring and fall. If you know when you are going a year ahead, you can get the cheap cabins at OF for about 84/night
08:22:54 <Betty> that sounds good. Maybe I´ll try for next year
08:26:14 <Betty> snow is creaping in
08:27:32 <steve> With the cabins, if you reserve them and can't make it, as long as you call and cancel 48 hours ahead of time they just refund your money. They know they will sell them anyway.
08:28:14 <Betty> that´s pretty cool to know
08:28:28 <steve> It looks like the changes of a closing day Penta are fading fast.
08:32:01 <ynpvisitor70> Penta changes on closing day?
08:33:51 <steve> Oops, chances, not changes. Sawmill is going now, and it will have to finish and be off for several hours before there is even a ghost of a chance for Penta... Mind wandering, fingers not always following.
08:36:32 <ynpvisitor70> was just kidding you, we are used to Davespeak around here.
08:36:56 <Betty> lol
08:36:58 <steve> G
08:41:56 <Betty> Ok, time for sleep. Have a great evening everyone!
08:42:05 <ynpvisitor70> sleep well
08:42:15 <steve> Sweet Dreams.
08:42:16 <ynpvisitor70> may the cam be working tomorrow
08:44:52 <kcmule> castle ie
08:46:16 <ynpvisitor70> nice
08:56:59 <kcmule> OF 15:56
08:57:00 <ynpvisitor70> only a 12 hour Castle major to major interval
10:03:26 <kcmule> grotto fountain ie
10:03:42 <kcmule> per gt
10:04:36 <kcmule> grotto started 1700
10:15:14 <ynpvisitor70> will be dark soon
10:22:38 <kcmule> riverside i reckon
10:23:04 <kcmule> yes its not even 1730 here and its nearly pitch black
10:25:38 <ynpvisitor70> an adjustment for sure, the early darkness
10:27:49 <kcmule> daisy 17:27ns
10:33:23 <kcmule> OF
