00:14:04 <Paul L.> Morning
00:23:40 <Dave from B> Morning Paul L.
00:43:48 <ynpvisitor88> a wee bit foggy out there
00:44:18 <Dave from B> Just a little
01:08:06 <CO Dave> OF finishing up
01:11:22 <Dave from B> Morning Jenna, CO Dave
01:12:22 <Jenna> morning Dave
01:14:17 <CO Dave> nice light on OF steam
01:15:38 <Kent> 7 Whirligigs in one day yesterday. Most I have seen.
01:16:16 <CO Dave> 7 in one blow...
01:16:26 <CO Dave> that's fantastic
01:16:33 <Kent> I thought of that :)
01:17:28 <Dave from B> Maybe we need another snow coach to Norris!
01:18:23 <Kent> I would go in a minute if it was from West
01:19:06 <Kent> Coach to Canyon only gives you about 30" at Norris which is not enough for anything useful
01:20:46 <Kent> If there is a disturbance going on we need someone like GoVixen to do a survery of both basins.
01:23:16 <Dave from B> I think we could talk GoVixen into going!:)
01:23:53 <Kent> I do not think that would be a problem either :)
01:24:31 <Kent> No overninght Beehive report.
01:40:39 <ynpvisitor81> kc saw steam LATE, after dark, last night, guessed it was Lion, not BH
02:06:08 <Will B>
02:07:30 <ynpvisitor75> geese
02:39:14 <ynpvisitor93> OF ie
03:07:26 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin, kc, Will
03:07:59 <Kevin L> Hi Dave. Looks like it is clearing a bit for me.
03:09:47 <Dave from B> You may have to work today!:)
03:10:18 <Kevin L> Work?
03:11:29 <kc (working)> mornin
03:19:57 <Dave from B> Just found out my customer who owns a restaurant in Great Falls and has been a Seahawk season ticket holder for over 20 years finally won the Seahwak lottery for Super Bowl tickets. His first time out of their 3 trips to the Super Bowl.
03:20:47 <Kevin L> Tell him to bring an air pump.
03:21:06 <Dave from B> :D
03:22:11 <Dave from B> They should make Pats pump up their footballs to 16.5 psi for Super Bowl as a penalty.
03:23:41 <Kevin L> They have some really funny prop bets here this year. My favorites are "How many times will the words deflated balls be said during the broadcast" and will the National Anthem singer forget one or more words.
03:24:38 <ynpvisitor93> Over inflation would just get Seahawk players hurt when they intercept Brady.
03:25:46 <ynpvisitor93> Kevin, no costume malfunction odds?
03:26:03 <Kevin L> Haven't seen that one. Yet....
03:26:13 <ynpvisitor93> Its early.
03:27:29 <Kevin L> The first score a safety one made some people lots of money last year.
03:29:19 <Dave from B> Grand is due
03:29:56 <Kevin L> So is Aurum
03:30:15 <Dave from B> haha
03:39:17 <Kevin L> Prop bets link:
04:13:33 <Eric> OF ie
04:16:37 <Kevin L> OF was 1111
04:17:33 <Dave from B> The Dress alike club at OF?:)
04:18:10 <Kevin L> Hells Snow Angels?
04:35:01 <Kevin L> Where is that Grand that was due Dave?
04:38:00 <Dave from B> We must have missed it in the fog?
04:41:39 <ynpvisitor9> I thought Annie would post the Grand E time
04:41:40 <ynpvisitor72> Was there enough steam for Turban and Vent afterplay?
04:42:04 <Kevin L> It was totally fogged in
04:47:38 <Dave from B> 72, around 1020 I thought I saw steam in the area. Not Grand but could have been afterplay.
04:50:00 <kc (working)> wow
04:50:11 <Kevin L> I am guessing this is Grand
04:50:14 <ynpvisitor72> Mystery solved :)
04:50:24 <kc (working)> or they are doing atomic testing downbasin
04:50:39 <Kevin L> I was just thinking that!
04:50:53 <Eric> West Triplet?
04:51:24 <Kevin L> Lot of doggies out today too.
04:57:47 <Dave from B> There you go!
04:58:56 <Eric> are those coyotes near the bison?
04:59:04 <Eric> What the heck are those animals?
04:59:38 <Eric> 3 small animals in the middle of that bison herd
05:00:27 <Kevin L> Baby bison?
05:00:39 <Eric> pretty tiny for babys
05:00:41 <Dave from B> Brown headed cowbird?
05:00:58 <Eric> guess without zoom, we will not know
05:04:31 <Jenna> geese
05:04:36 <Eric> really big birds
05:04:46 <Eric> Geese maybe
05:05:08 <Eric> they almost look the same height as a bison from here
05:05:14 <Dave from B> Geese it is
05:05:16 <Kevin L> That is what they are!
05:05:40 <Eric> hard to tell how far away they are, but never seen geese hanging with the bison
05:09:23 <Kevin L> Sharing grazing grounds.
05:10:51 <Kevin L> Bus duty in 45m so look for BH
05:24:22 <Dave from B> Hi, Ryan
05:24:38 <Ryan> Hi Dave, semi-here, semi-not here
05:25:22 <Kevin L> You lose a truck Ryan?
05:25:42 <ynpvisitor12> earthquake in Pennsylvania?
05:26:10 <Ryan> Lurking is a better term
05:26:45 <Eric> rough crowd Ryan :-)
05:28:21 <Jenna> not much else to entertain us :)
05:29:09 <Eric> BH would be a nice distraction.
05:29:42 <Eric> or maybe a nice winter Giantess
05:32:48 <Ryan> thump thump thump
05:33:02 <Ryan> IMPROBABLE
05:33:44 <Ryan> 1232ie
05:34:49 <Eric> is that improbable or the east vent of OF?
05:35:07 <Eric> OF
05:35:40 <Ryan> Improbable
05:35:45 <Ryan> Definitely improbable
05:36:01 <Eric> k...I don't know it well enough and it's placement
05:36:02 <Ryan> I just happened to look at the cam...
05:37:16 <Eric> Does it show up between anemone and OF>
05:37:18 <Eric> ?
05:37:23 <Ryan> Yup
05:37:45 <Eric> hmm, ok
05:37:53 <CO Dave> probably improbable.
05:38:08 <Eric> Does the OF east vent overlap it when erupting?
05:38:09 <CO Dave> i had to.
05:38:53 <CO Dave> if it's probably improbable, is it possible at all?
05:38:59 <Eric> Not questioning anybodies observations here...just trying to get a better understanding.
05:39:31 <Eric> haha
05:39:34 <Eric> :-D
05:41:05 <Dave from B> Wile should be showing up in about 45 minutes
05:41:24 <Eric> his daily rounds
05:42:23 <Eric> If anybody who captures the footage can post up the footage of would be appreciated.
05:42:44 <Eric> Helpful for us learning to identify things.
05:43:26 <kc (working)> dome ie via vec
05:50:01 <Kevin L> Bus duty. brb Look for Indy
05:50:33 <Dave from B> We'll ding you, Kevin!:)
05:52:34 <Micah> If it erupted once today it can do it again. Keep an eye out.
05:55:20 <Dave from B> Hi, Micah
05:56:36 <kc (working)> not really sure what to look for, so here is 1230-1235
05:56:48 <Eric> thanks kc
05:58:06 <Eric> I think we are tapping out your bandwidth :-)
05:59:41 <kc (working)> yw, np
06:03:00 <ynpvisitor57> Daisy
06:04:01 <ynpvisitor28> I did not see Improbable in there
06:04:18 <Eric> me either
06:04:24 <Eric> The east vent had some water
06:08:31 <Ryan> 1232, right before OF. I saw a column of steam and water from where Improbable is.
06:08:43 <Eric> I think that is the east vent
06:08:45 <Ryan> Closer to 1233 I think
06:09:34 <Ryan> Cant watch the video here, kc. But will later, thanks!
06:10:43 <kc (working)> yw
06:10:44 <kc (working)> dome ie
06:11:27 <Eric> doggy should be showing up soon
06:11:42 <Eric> funky cloud
06:12:43 <cc> Hi everyobne
06:12:48 <cc> everyone
06:12:50 <Ryan> Hi CC
06:13:07 <cc> took the cam until Kevin get back
06:13:29 <Jenna> any firefox users here?
06:13:53 <Kevin L> Back
06:13:53 <Eric> yep
06:13:54 <cc> expecting a blizzard to arrive tomorrow morning and hoping not to lose power
06:14:02 <Eric> yikes
06:14:17 <Jenna> my page is saying I need a plugin
06:14:26 <Kevin L> Snow causes cancer.
06:14:28 <cc> kevin the cam is yours
06:14:36 <Kevin L> I am using Firefox.
06:14:54 <Dave from B> Hi, cc
06:15:03 <Kevin L> OK.
06:15:06 <cc> hey Dave
06:15:20 <Kevin L> Still OK weather now CC?
06:15:43 <cc> yes but storm arrives during the early morning.
06:15:54 <Eric> Jenna, if it played before, try restarting your browser
06:15:58 <cc> TD will take the cam for me in the morning
06:16:00 <Kevin L> I hate those that sneak in at night.
06:16:01 <Eric> Sometimes firefox can get confused.
06:16:04 <Jenna> this is the first time I'm using firefox
06:16:17 <Eric> ohh
06:16:23 <Ryan> Snowing here in WV, CC
06:16:27 <Kevin L> It will need a flash plugin
06:16:29 <Eric> You will probably need flash installed
06:16:32 <Ryan> Finally switched to snow from rain.
06:16:57 <Eric>
06:17:04 <Eric> woops
06:17:07 <Eric> There you go
06:17:14 <cc> It isnowing here now but very lightly
06:17:22 <Eric> if you follow that link in firefox, it will help install what you need.
06:17:29 <ynpvisitor28> ok, I see "Improbable" right before OF. I'm not sure it isn't the little side vent of Old Faithful itself
06:17:49 <Jenna> awesome thanks
06:17:55 <Eric> np
06:17:56 <Ryan> I dont think I have ever seen the side vent of OF put out water.
06:18:00 <Kevin L> Be careful you uncheck any boxes that want to load unwanted software Jenna.
06:18:10 <Eric> It has been doing that over the last month or two ryan
06:18:24 <Ryan> OF's side vent has been putting out water?
06:18:28 <lt> Flash likes to try and install a virus scanner in addition to itself so be extra sure to double check for that.
06:18:31 <Eric> Yep
06:18:59 <Eric> yes, what lt and kevin said.
06:19:01 <Ryan> Ummm.... are you kidding?
06:19:08 <Eric> nope
06:19:30 <Eric> I have seen steam and water from that vent multiple times.
06:19:54 <Eric> splashes as you saw in that video
06:20:00 <Eric> no vertical streams.
06:20:28 <Eric> We nominally gave it the name east vent so we could discuss it.
06:20:34 <Ryan> I really dont think OF has a second vent that ejects water.
06:21:02 <ynpvisitor47> It does.
06:21:06 <ynpvisitor47> Just rarely.
06:21:08 <Eric> ok...then improbable erupts in tandem with OF often :-P
06:21:10 <ynpvisitor47> It has been the source of debate for years.
06:21:37 <Eric> I would suggest any improbable sighting around and OF is probably the vent
06:21:54 <Eric> an not and
06:22:02 <Ryan> I know its been a debate. But every time that debate seems to have ended with "we arent sure what we are seeing"
06:22:07 <Ryan> And no, this was Improbable.
06:22:26 <ynpvisitor47> I guess we'll have to wait until someone who knows what their looking at sees the capture
06:22:41 <Eric> well, watch the video replay...I was looking at the same feed you were.
06:23:24 <Ryan> Well.... I mean... I know where Improbable is....
06:23:37 <Ryan> And I know what it looks like from the cam.
06:24:55 <Kevin L> Does it work now Jenna?
06:28:24 <Jenna> yes thanks Kevin
06:32:29 <ynpvisitor28> next Improbable eruption should be around 1407 then
06:32:58 <ynpvisitor47> How do you figure?
06:34:09 <Eric> The next OF :-P
06:34:49 <ynpvisitor47> Getting your geysers mixed up are you?
06:35:14 <Eric> I doubt it.
06:35:41 <ynpvisitor47> then don't be mean. Maybe it was improbable and maybe it wasn't, there's no need to be passive aggressive cynical punks.
06:38:50 <Eric> well, first I don't think anybody was being passive OF next time and see if it looks similar. Second, it has nothing to do with being cynical...I believe it was just something different. You can make your own guess. No need to drop into name calling!
06:39:05 <Jenna> ..
06:41:29 <Dave from B> Perhaps we can just ignore the next OF and zoom in on the vent?:)
06:42:10 <Eric> haha
06:42:30 <lt> works for me
06:49:39 <Jenna> apparently firefox doesn't want me to watch the webcam
06:50:00 <lt> still not working for you, Jenna?
06:50:31 <Kevin L> Have you cleared cookies & history?
06:51:56 <Jenna> no it is, I meant the chat page keeps saying I quit
06:52:04 <Eric> that improbable?
06:52:20 <Jenna> I should have said it'll let me watch but doesn't want me to talk to you
06:52:33 <lt> oh, well, the chat page just does that to all of us occasionally
06:52:47 <Kevin L> It just decided you are the one to pick on today.
06:53:08 <Jenna> I feel special? lol
06:53:10 <lt> we tried to talk it into picking on Dave instead, but it's leaving that responsibility to us
06:53:35 <Jenna> haha
06:53:40 <Dave from B> I'm not always the punching bag!:)
06:53:51 <Eric> you sure dave?
06:54:00 <lt> nope, sometimes you're the pucnhign bag!
06:54:05 <lt> ;)
06:54:07 <Eric> hahahaha
06:54:19 <Eric> ROFL
06:54:28 <Dave from B> :D
06:54:38 <lt> see, you scared Jenna off. bad Dave.
06:54:45 <Dave from B> haha
06:54:53 <Dave from B> Jenna is not afraid of me!
06:56:05 <lt> then maybe the blizzard ate her. long distance.
06:59:26 <Dave from B> I think my semi of snow was delivered today
06:59:31 <lt> hi Betty
06:59:41 <Betty> Hello lt
06:59:52 <lt> the east coast called, Dave, it appears that someone misdelivered a few more of them.
06:59:54 <Jenna> sorry, page froze and I didn't see the messages
07:00:15 <Jenna> we only got about an inch. they can keep those semis.
07:00:17 <lt> lies, Jenna, you're just scared of Dave
07:00:19 <Dave from B> haha, lt
07:00:23 <Jenna> haha
07:00:42 <Jenna> one reason I haven't moved to Billings ;)
07:00:58 <lt> meanwhile, maybe I should open a window. it's supposed to be somewhere in the 70s today.
07:00:59 <Eric> kind of wish we had snow :-(
07:01:20 <ynpvisitor47> We've only had a light dusting over here all winter.
07:01:25 <lt> I will take any form of water from the sky, not picky at this point.
07:01:27 <Eric> braggert lt :-D
07:01:33 <Jenna> filling in for Kevin lt?
07:02:15 <lt> I wish I was on the east coast right now, actually. :( really tired of this version of "winter"
07:02:38 <lt> I will happily ship warm air to whoever wants it
07:02:41 <Eric> same here lt...missing a real winter.
07:02:45 <lt> not responsible for the condition it arrives in, though.
07:02:47 <Betty> even we have snow...
07:03:04 <CO Dave> 65 and sunny here for a couple days yet.
07:03:11 <Betty> what´s up with you over there?
07:03:23 <Eric> My daughter is off school on Wednesday because they build in snow days to schedule and they haven't used a single one.
07:03:32 <Jenna> I only want enough snow to ski and then it can stop
07:04:03 <lt> a bunch of the ski resorts @ Tahoe are closed. not enough snow and too warm for them to make any
07:04:13 <Kevin L> My apple tree is budding
07:04:22 <ynpvisitor47> Kevin that's insane
07:04:27 <Eric> yowza
07:04:39 <Jenna> not good for those resorts
07:04:46 <lt> nope
07:05:28 <Betty> where do you ski, Jenna? (if possible)
07:05:53 <Jenna> just cross country, there's a place nearby that uses their hiking trails
07:06:02 <Betty> nice
07:06:15 <Jenna> otherwise there is a place about 2 hrs north with actual hills
07:06:46 <Jenna> that is one thing I am afraid of, downhill skiing
07:07:08 <Kevin L> I fall dow real good.
07:07:12 <Betty> ohhh, that is so much fun!
07:08:01 <Betty> I woulb blame myself in cross country. #I cannot stop ;-)
07:08:16 <Betty> would
07:08:37 <Betty> (sorry for my Davespeak)
07:08:38 <Jenna> lol I am with Kevin
07:09:16 <lt> I learned downhill skiing first, so I have trouble with cross country and not being able to stop. or turn.
07:09:41 <Betty> That´s it, same here, lt
07:09:42 <lt> OF
07:09:49 <ynpvisitor9> nice start
07:09:56 <Eric> boom
07:10:03 <ynpvisitor9> it was a boom
07:10:22 <Betty> indeed
07:10:25 <Kevin L> Great streamers
07:11:51 <lt> so did anyone watch the all star hockey game yesterday? 17-12 final score. the goalies must hate those games. :)
07:12:09 <Eric> wow...that is a high score
07:12:25 <lt> no one was playing defense. really.
07:12:29 <Eric> did they have goalies?
07:12:46 <lt> they did, but how hung over the goalies were is a valid question.
07:12:54 <Kevin L> It was about as fun as the Pro Bowl. Or watching paint dry....
07:13:45 <lt> pfft, those two might be equivalent but hockey is better than that.
07:14:36 <Ryan> ..
07:15:42 <Ryan> Just going to make the statement that this was *before* OF. By like 2 or 3 minutes....
07:15:53 <Ryan> So, yeah... I'll just go find something else to do today/
07:22:13 <Eric> no doggy wandering by
07:22:31 <Jenna> ..
07:33:26 <Kevin L> Doggies are back!
07:33:36 <kc (working)> little more white on the times square cam
07:34:22 <Kevin L> Better scenery here.
07:36:56 <kc (working)> he looks a little more prepared than the selfie snapping tourirsts im watching
07:38:13 <Eric> haha
07:38:24 <Eric> He would look awesome in times square :-P
07:40:51 <Dave from B> Any splashing at BH lately?
07:41:13 <cc> no
07:41:32 <kc (working)> we had a guy show up at our tailgate last month dressed in a full buffalo coat. he was the only one who was wishing it was warmer that day
07:41:43 <kc (working)> hi CC
07:41:57 <cc> hi KC
07:41:58 <kc (working)> *wishing it was colder (duh)
07:42:23 <cc> as for me I am just wishing we do not lose our power
07:42:37 <Eric> wow...what a jacket!
07:42:48 <kc (working)> fingers and toes crossed for you CC
07:42:58 <cc> thanks
07:43:14 <Eric> At least you still have the internet :-D
07:43:25 <cc> ture but for how long
07:43:29 <cc> true
07:43:56 <cc> I have already made plans for another operator to take the cam tomorrow
07:44:58 <cc> they are talking about 3 feet of snow and blizzard conditions]
07:45:14 <Eric> you near bostone?
07:45:19 <Eric> Boston
07:45:28 <cc> everything has been canceled
07:45:36 <cc> no Eric...Connecticut
07:45:43 <Eric> don't doubt it...that storm looks pretty ugly
07:46:17 <Eric> 60-70 mph winds with blizzard conditions...can't even imagine
07:46:38 <Eric> well, I can because I have skiied in similar weather :-(
07:46:53 <Eric> Not quite that strong of winds....but getting close.
07:47:34 <Jenna> with strong winds are you still actually skiing? :)
07:47:41 <cc> Govenor has put a ban on all driving as of 9 PM tonight
07:47:53 <Eric> good call
07:47:55 <Kevin L> Makes you go faster!
07:48:10 <Eric> Well, you are skiing as fast as you can toward the lodge for drinks :-)
07:48:27 <Eric> LC ie
07:49:07 <Betty> when they are able to run the cablecars you can ski with strong winds
07:49:29 <Eric> improbable?
07:49:44 <Betty> looks like
07:50:06 <Eric> Now I see that!
07:50:12 <Eric> Nice splashes
07:50:19 <cc> Kevin yoy ready to take the cam?
07:50:40 <Kevin L> Anytime
07:50:47 <cc> It is yours
07:51:20 <Eric> Well, stay safe cc...hope it blows over quickly for you.
07:51:34 <cc> thanks Eric
07:51:40 <cc> goodnight all
07:51:46 <Betty> night cc
07:51:51 <Dave from B> nite cc
07:55:56 <Betty> What a beautiful day over there...
07:56:44 <Jenna> ..
07:57:31 <Kevin L> Would you believe 50 degrees?
07:58:05 <Betty> at OF?
07:58:58 <Kevin L> Yep!
07:59:04 <Kevin L> 68 down here.
07:59:14 <Betty> wow!
08:01:55 <Dave from B> 56F in Blgs. Was 60 yesterday. snow is quickly disappearing
08:02:15 <Dave from B> Workers even poured some concrete outside today
08:02:32 <Kevin L> Looks like I have some rain sneaking up from the south.
08:03:18 <Kevin L> People up there probably wearing shorts!
08:04:06 <Betty> the Canadians, not the Californians :-)
08:04:12 <Eric> Cone walker
08:04:23 <Eric> 1000 lb one :-P
08:04:49 <Kevin L> The natives can do that!
08:06:17 <Dave from B> He gets a free pass
08:10:06 <Kevin L> No frozen dinners this year!
08:13:10 <Betty> looks dead
08:13:57 <Kevin L> Really does. It had been steaming pretty good not long ago.
08:15:24 <Kevin L> My daughter said a moose tried to run over her down by Rigby this weekend. I( have never seen one that fro south.
08:19:45 <Dave from B> Must have been lost
08:20:16 <Kevin L> May be hiding from wolves.
08:24:39 <ynpvisitor93> Doggy
08:24:59 <Eric> Doggy and Bison?
08:25:31 <ynpvisitor93> Doggy=bison
08:25:45 <Eric> k
08:26:29 <lt> haven't seen the coyote yet today. of course I have been distracted.
08:26:49 <Eric> That bison will probably keep any dogs away
08:28:31 <ynpvisitor9> bison and coyotes could care less about one another
08:28:38 <ynpvisitor9> it would never keep the coyote away
08:28:47 <ynpvisitor9> bison is not a predator
08:29:21 <Betty> a steamcloud!!!
08:31:41 <kc (working)>
08:33:30 <Betty> toooo close!
08:33:35 <Kevin L> Now would be a good time for Aurum.
08:33:57 <Kevin L> Braver (or dumber) than I am.
08:34:59 <Eric> OF
08:37:25 <Eric> Not so much a Bison being a predator...but no coyote wants to get nicked by a bison horn and die from the wound.
08:37:35 <Eric> People aren't quite as smart.
08:37:40 <ynpvisitor93> That is *way* too close.
08:37:41 <Eric> apparently
08:38:50 <Betty> it´s getting aggressive...
08:38:59 <Betty> move guys
08:39:04 <Eric> Yes, it's stance is not happy
08:40:57 <Jenna> my stream likes to freeze, then I put my mouse on it and it speeds back up
08:43:18 <Kevin L> Page really does hate you today Jenna.
08:46:57 <Kevin L> Nice fur.
08:47:13 <Betty> time to head out. goodnight all
08:47:23 <Eric> night betty
08:47:45 <Kevin L> Bye
08:48:11 <ynpvisitor72> Daisy
08:48:21 <Kevin L> That was early.
08:50:38 <Kevin L> Lion is trying.
09:03:31 <Graham> whats up with this little view of the basin?
09:03:58 <Kevin L> Not much else to look at right now.
09:04:30 <Graham> looked so much nier on Sat morning
09:06:48 <Graham> i see Aurum is due
09:07:08 <Kevin L> It was waiting for you. BH also.
09:08:40 <kc (working)> wb
09:09:07 <Graham> thanks, i guess
09:09:31 <Graham> had a great time, but boy i feel tired now
09:10:09 <Kevin L> So you are a tired individual?
09:11:10 <Graham> yep, kept running up and down the basin
09:11:32 <Graham> didnt get home till midnight
09:11:51 <Graham> then had to drive somewhere and sit in an office behind a computer - what fun is that?
09:12:44 <Graham> thanks for posting times Kevin
09:13:01 <Eric> Was fun watching you out there giving us field reports :-)
09:13:21 <Kevin L> NP Graham
09:13:22 <Dave from B> Welcome home, Graham
09:13:22 <Eric> Glad you made it to so many BH
09:13:57 <Graham> I think 5 BH's is a record for me, even for 2 week trips since I usually cant get all the way there
09:14:15 <Graham> nice to have Will Mara and Kent around early too
09:14:19 <Dave from B> Bh is too far away from your cabin?:)
09:14:36 <Graham> didnt see Improbably, Penta, or Dome - all waited to erupt when i left
09:15:08 <Eric> Grahams back...Dome :-)
09:15:47 <Graham> Giantess must be next
09:16:39 <Graham> Improbable may have erupted whilei was there, the snow/ice in the runoff was cleared sometimes although could have melted too on the warmer days
09:21:34 <Dave from B> Time to head to Becca's game. Have a great evening everyone!
09:21:52 <Kevin L> Good luck.
09:22:30 <Dave from B> They'll need it tonight. Lost a starter for the year. And, we think Becca will be playing with a broken nose this evening.
09:22:54 <Kevin L> She broke her nose?
09:22:55 <Graham> Oblong?
09:22:59 <Eric> night dave
09:24:43 <Eric> I swear it looked like F&M steam that morning you went over to riverside Graham
09:24:54 <Eric> Glad you were there to shoot it down.
09:24:54 <Graham> entered the 8 missing Grand electronic times
09:25:03 <Eric> Nice
09:25:18 <Graham> wasnt going then. theres the report it went later that day during Grand
09:25:39 <Eric> From someone on the ground or via webcam?
09:27:28 <Graham> ground report but we are still not sure. i need to compare my pictures, before and after
09:31:13 <Micah> Nice light this afternoon.
09:31:21 <Micah> Wierd that it's so warm right now. The bees are out.
09:32:15 <Graham> and the snow is melting
09:32:37 <Eric> Here is the video from 1/23 Graham and what we were seeing when I thought F&M had gone:
09:32:56 <Eric> at 4:21 in the video
09:33:04 <Graham> Dome
09:33:36 <Micah> Eric just glancing at that I concur. That definitely looks like the F&M target area.
09:35:01 <Eric> Ya, and it was HUGE
09:35:10 <Eric> but also very steaming that morning.
09:35:17 <Micah> Also true.
09:35:30 <Eric> I just reviewed that same footage around 1:17 when it is reported and see NO steam
09:35:38 <Eric> :-(
09:35:45 <Micah> A lot of times even Grotto can get over there even.
09:35:52 <Graham> i think it was just a wall of white
09:35:54 <Micah> The steam back there shifts in odd ways.
09:36:42 <Eric> Yes, I have watched hundreds of hours of webcam not totally ignorant of those shifting winds.
09:37:09 <Eric> But when I was watching it clear in real time, it had a distinct column at F&M...
09:37:28 <Eric> Either were there Graham :-) So it's pretty clear it didn't go.
09:38:42 <Eric> It was a strange morning behind the trees.
09:39:50 <Eric> Here is the exact time F&M was reported on GT:
09:40:26 <Eric> ugg, it starts playing quickly...but you can get it to pause and stop at 1317
09:40:33 <Eric> on a wide view of the basin
09:41:13 <Micah> Also if you go to the settings gear in the bottom right corner you can slow it down.
09:42:25 <Eric> Maybe some Lion action soon
09:42:38 <Eric> big splashes
09:42:41 <Eric> LC ie
09:43:09 <Eric> Lion is really trying
09:44:02 <Micah> Good light on it right now.
09:44:06 <Micah> An initial would be nice.
09:44:39 <Graham> I would have expected to see steam from F&M later but I dont see it.
09:45:31 <Eric> I added the link to GT on the report...I will let others decide
09:45:40 <Graham> so what you doing Sunday Micah?
09:46:08 <Micah> Watching the hawks play a good game and whip the patriots of course.
09:46:17 <Eric> haha
09:46:31 <Graham> no gazers in NE to challenge though, well maybe CC
09:46:45 <Eric> cc will be under 3 feet of snow
09:46:56 <Eric> hopefully dug out by Sunday
09:47:08 <Micah> And the patriots will be 3 feet deeper than that at the end of the game
09:47:11 <Eric> anemone
09:47:14 <Micah> ;)
09:47:19 <Micah> ooh thanks.
09:47:40 <Micah> not enough steam for Big. that was probably a short Little.
09:47:49 <Eric> Ya, it was quite short
09:48:11 <Micah> Little does this thing occasionally where itw ill erupt only for about 10-20 seconds.
09:48:13 <Eric> but I didn't see start
09:48:21 <Micah> I don't know where it fits in the system's cycles.
09:49:11 <Graham> hum, GT previous day button doesnt work
09:49:19 <Graham> cant blame that on my Crapberry
09:49:47 <Graham> if little doesnt drain do you count them as seperate eruptions?
09:50:03 <Micah> no.
09:50:12 <Micah> When little stops, but remains full. I call it a "Pause"
09:50:30 <Micah> Basically if water remains in the crater.
09:50:43 <Micah> There can be up to 4 pauses in a single eruption.
09:50:47 <Micah> maybe 5.
09:51:38 <Graham> so we need a burst count field aded to GT, and a "long burst" code too?
09:51:55 <Micah> LOL. I don't think Will would allow it.
09:52:21 <Micah> Would be nice if we could get a "Concert" field.
09:53:03 <ynpvisitor7> I've tried convincing Will to do so.
09:53:08 <ynpvisitor7> For a few features.
09:56:33 <Micah> Little Anemone ie
09:56:46 <Micah> Big
09:56:52 <Micah> speaking of concerts
09:57:44 <Micah> nice boils on Improbable too
09:59:23 <Eric> Yah, I caught a big boil earlier
10:00:11 <Micah> Sometimes it boils, sometimes it bursts, and apparently recently, sometimes it has a major.
10:00:30 <Eric> well...maybe :-)
10:01:01 <Micah> 1 confirmed on the 16th for sure.
10:01:52 <Graham> gonna see if i can get one pic uploaded today
10:02:01 <Eric> are you sure on the 16th...I find it suspicious again it happens right before an OF
10:02:04 <Graham> which geyser will it be?
10:02:16 <Micah> Eric.
10:02:26 <Eric> I haven't seen it though on the 16th
10:02:27 <Micah> I know where it was.
10:02:35 <ynpvisitor7> Yeah... Old Faithful's got that side vent.
10:03:08 <Eric> I believe you Micah and I totally get it...just saying it's strange coincidence.
10:03:21 <kc (working)> if someone who saw the 1449 posts in gt i'll add the capture
10:03:24 <Eric> also that east vent is in the same place
10:03:38 <ynpvisitor7> You know.... Old Faithful seems to erupt around the time one of the Anemones erupt too.
10:03:54 <ynpvisitor7> It erupted at 1449?
10:04:03 <Micah> Sorry. 1500
10:04:09 <Micah> Eric.
10:04:10 <Graham> there was also a questionable Little Squirt report, i need to check the capture for it
10:04:10 <ynpvisitor7> Today?
10:04:19 <Micah> No that east vent is nowhere near Improbable on the cam.
10:04:23 <Micah> That's the problem I have.
10:04:37 <Graham> LS wasn't erupting when i walked by before and after the wc report
10:04:37 <ynpvisitor7> Graham, LS and Bronze compete for attention on the cam :(
10:04:55 <kc (working)> 14:49:29 improbable? 14:49:44 looks like 14:50:06 Now I see that!
10:04:57 <Graham> i know, i think it was Bronze steam
10:05:22 <Micah> Wait. Hold up. 1449?
10:05:23 <Eric> That was an improbable boil
10:05:27 <Micah> Everyone pause.
10:05:32 <Micah> Was it an eruption or a boil?
10:05:48 <Eric> It was a big boil
10:05:55 <Eric> but not an eruption.
10:06:09 <Eric> OF
10:06:10 <Micah> I'm grabbing the capture of the 16th eruption for you.
10:06:12 <ynpvisitor77> Go big Fluffy
10:06:14 <Micah> OF
10:06:15 <Eric> cool
10:06:16 <Graham> OF 1706
10:06:20 <ynpvisitor77> nice
10:06:36 <Kevin L> Had some powerful starts today.
10:06:49 <ynpvisitor7> Is *that* the East Vent spoken of earlier?
10:06:52 <ynpvisitor77> wish it would rattle bee
10:06:52 <Eric> It's not screwing around
10:06:58 <kc (working)> so if improbable did not erupt today why is there an entry for it
10:07:09 <Kevin L> Is it probable that improbable may have something to do with that?
10:07:14 <ynpvisitor7> That is not where Improbable is, Eric. I dont know what Ryan saw, but that is not the location for Improbable/
10:07:36 <Graham> Dome
10:07:45 <Eric> Well, kc posted the video earlier...everyone here has a link to it
10:07:55 <Eric> Haven't heard anyone confirm
10:08:08 <Eric> I looked at it and did not see improbable
10:08:17 <Micah>
10:08:22 <ynpvisitor7> Does anyone know what to look for?
10:08:23 <Micah> 1500:43
10:08:26 <Eric> but maybe I was looking at the moon :-P
10:08:35 <Micah> The eruption lasts for only about a minute. Blink and you miss it.
10:09:33 <kc (working)> holy cow thats fast, like the end of every benny hill show
10:09:43 <Micah> KC.
10:09:53 <Eric> haha, ya, I don't see anything there
10:09:55 <Micah> Click on the gear at the corner. Move speed from "Normal" to ".25"
10:10:03 <Eric> ahh
10:10:04 <Eric> ok
10:10:32 <ynpvisitor7> I think Improbable is steaming now...
10:10:34 <Eric> hmmm, I don't have that setting on my youtube player
10:10:42 <Micah> Improbable is.
10:11:18 <Eric> so again, OF erupts and improbable shows up?
10:11:19 <Micah> Eric. So just to clarify. Old Faithful's east vent is almost directly below Big Anemone on this view. Improbable is in between it and Old FAithful's main vent.
10:11:27 <Micah> Speaking of which.
10:11:29 <Micah> Big.
10:11:32 <Eric> ya, nice
10:11:43 <ynpvisitor77> Improbable would be between the side vent and old faithful and would look like Plume
10:11:49 <ynpvisitor7> Well Improbable is always there.... so, yes I guess it steams when OF eruption.
10:12:00 <ynpvisitor77> only it stays up instead of having bursts
10:12:14 <Eric> Let me rewatch todays
10:12:36 <ynpvisitor77> did Castle finally wake up?
10:13:06 <ynpvisitor77> I see a lot of steam on the edge of the screen
10:13:15 <Eric> how big is an improbable eruption?
10:13:28 <Micah> Major eruptions reach heights of 10-20 feet.
10:13:35 <Micah> Minor eruptions can hit around 7 feet.
10:13:39 <Micah> I saw two minors this summer.
10:13:41 <kc (working)> i still have the raw footage from that day, watching now. that was a major?
10:13:47 <Eric> ok...I see it boiling in kc's capture
10:13:53 <Micah> Minor's last only seconds
10:14:00 <Micah> If it lasts over 30 it's a major.
10:14:07 <Eric> not more than a foot maybe 2 ft high
10:14:07 <ynpvisitor77> hello Castle
10:14:59 <Eric> but I am still watching
10:16:30 <Eric> hmm, nope...some good boils
10:16:53 <ynpvisitor7> Has anyone here seen Improbable in person?
10:17:43 <Eric> I have seen it many times
10:17:47 <Eric> not erupt though
10:17:50 <Eric> :-P
10:18:08 <ynpvisitor7> Ha, funny, Eric. Now, has anyone seen it *erupt*.
10:18:28 <ynpvisitor7> Because, from personal experience, there can be major differences between what is seen in basin and on cam.
10:19:21 <lt> I think most of us who are regulars are aware of that after the BHI that was caught on cam but had to be proven to the inbasin folks.
10:20:34 <ynpvisitor7> Exactly, for them it was *very real* that BH had an non-indicator eruption. They even matched the start description, but from two very different perspectives they still didn't see BHI.
10:20:49 <ynpvisitor7> Though, it was interesting to see the reactions play out here, and there. :)
10:21:51 <kc (working)> i renamed the earlier capture filename, trying to avoid spreading misinfo in case anyone thinks it was an actual eruption:
10:22:03 <Eric> thanks
10:22:06 <lt> thanks for the capture, kc
10:22:42 <Eric> do you mind if we connect that to the GT report?
10:23:04 <kc (working)> the 1232 report?
10:23:09 <Eric> If yes
10:23:12 <kc (working)> yw lt, et al
10:23:13 <Eric> woops, yes
10:23:16 <ynpvisitor7> All I can say, because I wasnt here today, is to take it easy. There seems to be a "fog of war" kind of thing that happens with the cam and the in-basin gazers. I see both sides say and do things that are quite immature than both sides end up regretting.
10:23:38 <kc (working)> the 1232 capture was just raw data, 1230-1235 no editing
10:23:44 <Eric> I just want to attach the video from the time the report shows
10:24:01 <kc (working)> it would seem to me the 1232 should be deleted, just mho
10:24:03 <Eric> let everyone make their own opinions...
10:24:10 <ynpvisitor7> In the end, we all want to see the same thing. :)
10:24:29 <Eric> Yep and video captures are a great way to do it :-P
10:24:45 <ynpvisitor7> Perhaps, conclusions, is a better term.
10:25:03 <ynpvisitor7> Eric, this is a good example of part of the problem: "Yep and video captures are a great way to do it :P "
10:25:17 <ynpvisitor7> Both sides want only to prove they are right and wont consider that they may be wrong.
10:25:39 <Eric> I am fine being wrong...happens every day
10:25:39 <ynpvisitor7> In the end both sides end up bickering and then make comments about each other behind each others backs.
10:25:51 <Eric> Learn from it and move on.
10:25:56 <lt> debug! debug!
10:26:06 <ynpvisitor7> :)
10:26:08 <Eric> haha
10:26:10 <Eric> yep
10:26:20 <kc (working)> use my capture links wherever u think it's appropriate, Eric et al
10:26:33 <Eric> thanks kc
10:26:38 <Kevin L> I think the Earth is still spinning......
10:26:55 <Eric> how do you know Kevin?
10:26:56 <kc (working)> there's a teacup orbiting jupiter no one knows about too
10:26:59 <lt> lies, Kevin. the east coast blizzard froze us all in place.
10:27:09 <Eric> really kc?
10:27:16 <Eric> did you put it there?
10:27:34 <lt> he dropped it off on the way in. don't forget to pick up your trash when you leave
10:27:36 <Kevin L> He has a video capture.
10:27:41 <kc (working)> no, Russell did
10:27:44 <ynpvisitor7> HA :D
10:27:45 <kc (working)> google it
10:28:19 <Graham> Dome
10:28:46 <kc (working)> aurum ie?
10:28:52 <kc (working)> yep
10:28:56 <ynpvisitor7> Thats a start
10:29:11 <Micah> damn missed it
10:29:14 <Kevin L> Nice!
10:29:27 <Eric> nice kc :-) I learned something new
10:29:30 <ynpvisitor7> 1728 was a start time, kc. You typed before I could.
10:29:43 <kc (working)> ok ty. yw Eric
10:31:51 <ynpvisitor7> So.... no comment on the communication issues between webcam gazers and basin gazers?
10:32:18 <ynpvisitor7> Big
10:32:22 <ynpvisitor7> 1732
10:32:41 <Eric> was there someone in basin observing improbable earlier?
10:33:14 <ynpvisitor7> No. But I also wasnt talking about just Improbable.
10:33:27 <Micah> Will and Mara were the first persons to see that it had had major activity
10:33:55 <ynpvisitor7> Eric, I assume you mean today?
10:33:57 <Graham> Its clear from the gravel wash that it did something big
10:34:02 <Eric> being able to rewind in slow motion is pretty darn powerful :-)
10:34:40 <Eric> Just ask the video replay officials in sports
10:35:06 <ynpvisitor7> Do those captures capture real time? Or time-lapse?
10:35:08 <Eric> now if we just had 5 or 6 angles on the eruptions, it would even be better.
10:35:11 <Micah> That's sports. This is science.
10:35:16 <ynpvisitor7> Improbable is boiling now, I think.
10:36:21 <Eric> scientists use video replays a lot as well Micah
10:36:30 <Micah> true.
10:36:35 <ynpvisitor7> Well, I had an honest question about the captures.
10:36:36 <Eric> not sure I understand why it makes a difference though
10:36:47 <Micah> But you need multiple ways of observation.
10:36:54 <kc (working)> wish jsj1771 would allow comments on their youtube captures. they have a lot of features, but no room for discussion
10:37:30 <ynpvisitor7> They probably want to avoid, well, this sadly.
10:37:59 <Micah> I'm guessing it's the fear of conspiracy theorists.
10:38:17 <ynpvisitor7> Yeah, they are just as bad.
10:38:22 <ynpvisitor7> Nice Tardy spikes!
10:38:32 <ynpvisitor7> Or is that Sawmill for once?
10:41:13 <kcmule> i dont think fear of anything should squelch discussion, but that's just my opinion
10:41:57 <Micah> Lion
10:41:58 <Eric> Lion
10:42:03 <Micah> finally
10:42:04 <Eric> Kind of
10:42:15 <kcmule> cold engine, hard to turn over
10:42:16 <Eric> there we go
10:42:21 <Eric> no doubt
10:42:26 <Eric> chug chug
10:42:57 <Eric> was just about to say I can't believe lion hasn't gone :-D
10:43:03 <Micah> nice!
10:43:10 <Graham> took its time
10:43:17 <Eric> climb, climb
10:44:36 <ynpvisitor21> yey Lion
10:45:29 <ynpvisitor7> Dep is pushing
10:45:55 <ynpvisitor7> Dep 1945
10:46:02 <Micah> yep
10:46:44 <kcmule> only the 2nd report in 12 days, nice
10:47:04 <Graham> i kept watching it but it never erupted for me
10:47:14 <Graham> had some good overflows
10:50:29 <Graham> Dome
10:53:55 <Kitt> hello again
10:54:03 <Micah> Hi Kitt
10:54:17 <Kitt> Thomas helped me set up computer so I could see the video
10:54:19 <Kevin L> Hi Kitt. Make BH erupt!
10:54:26 <Kitt> I wish
10:54:28 <Graham> thank you Thomas
10:54:39 <Thomas> you are welcome
10:54:48 <Kitt> It looks like Improbably, but was only a nice boil
10:54:58 <Graham> Kitt can look at Bee on FB instead
10:55:10 <Kitt> huh
10:55:19 <Graham> instead of live here
10:55:21 <Thomas> No she can't she doen't have FB
10:55:31 <Graham> well someone might be able to chow her?
10:55:34 <Kitt> actually my screen saver is a beautiful back lit eruption of Beehive
10:55:38 <Thomas> Dad does but she doesn't
10:55:53 <Graham> well no bee for you then Kitt
10:56:12 <Graham> LC
10:56:19 <Kitt> consider yourself lucky seeing 5 eruptions
10:56:41 <Thomas> I have tried to talk her into getting a FB a couple of times but each time she said no.
10:57:23 <Graham> i do Kitt, and I enjoyed a full shower, not just a wind shift
10:57:52 <Kitt> I watched a coworker as she had to individually unfriend each FB person
10:57:54 <Eric> We saw you and that kid :-)
10:58:04 <Kitt> It took her many hours
10:58:23 <Eric> That was a really big crowd out at BH that day
10:58:32 <Eric> for winter
10:58:34 <ynpvisitor45> skier death in Yellowstone
10:58:40 <ynpvisitor45> near Tower
10:58:42 <Eric> eek
10:58:53 <Eric> heart attack?
10:58:54 <ynpvisitor29> bad news
10:59:29 <Kevin L> Didn't freeze to death today.
10:59:40 <ynpvisitor45> hypothermia they think
10:59:49 <ynpvisitor45> not sure the details
10:59:53 <Eric> yikes...not a good way to go
11:00:09 <Kevin L> Wierd. It hit 52 at OF today!
11:00:20 <Eric> doesn't look like we are going to get a daylight BH today
11:00:27 <Kitt> anyway I feel that the video showed Improbable (having a nice boil)
11:00:38 <Kitt> bee has gone to the dark side
11:00:53 <Kitt> maybe you will see it tomorrow while I am at preschool
11:01:31 <Kitt> nice splash bee
11:02:14 <Eric>
11:02:29 <Eric> That link is to the park service press release about that death
11:03:08 <Graham> nasty
11:03:47 <Kitt> not good
11:04:16 <ynpvisitor45>
11:04:17 <Kevin L> Sounds like he had been there a while.
11:04:28 <ynpvisitor45> oops, guess I am late to the link
11:05:36 <Kitt> I would guess heart attack or something that prevented him from keeping himself warm
11:06:39 <Kitt> as we go softly into that good night (sweet dreams bee)
11:06:46 <Kitt> until tomorrow
11:06:51 <Kitt> bye
11:09:00 <Eric> That guy who died was a guide with Wildland Trekking
11:10:02 <Eric> they do backcountry skiing and backpacking
11:10:21 <Eric> I hope it doesn't turn out to be more people involved.
11:15:57 <ynpvisitor45> wonder how long he has been there
11:16:07 <ynpvisitor45> nice down basin cloud
11:17:33 <Eric> Since 2012, according to this article:
