15:17:23 <Jimbo> Anybody calling Grand? IE at 0717
15:19:47 <Jimbo> GT has last Grand at 9:40 before this one
15:22:42 <ynpvisitor21> I was only halfway paying attention
15:26:07 <ynpvisitor21> MA has nice photos of Ledge yesterday. So glad she got to see the start!
15:28:38 <ynpvisitor31> OF 0728
15:28:47 <Jimbo> Nice and big and bright
15:29:46 <ynpvisitor31> Morning and evening light are very nice
15:33:46 <ynpvisitor31> I say it all the time, but the UGB is one great piece of real estate
15:34:10 <ynpvisitor21> It sure is
15:46:42 <ynpvisitor66> .
16:00:48 <ynpvisitor31> Looks like you could hike up to the Biscuit Basin overlook in sandals
16:04:24 <ynpvisitor21> Dep is hot
16:13:54 <ynpvisitor31> Castle 0812

16:57:56 <ynpvisitor21> For KEvin when he gets here, a lsightly embellished article on oour school's project.
16:58:27 <ynpvisitor21> Off to a lunch meeting to talk about a possible photo op (a big deal). Wish me luck!
17:03:36 <ynpvisitor8> Improbable?
17:04:19 <ynpvisitor8> OF
17:19:10 <Jake> possible Split Cone off-camera
17:19:29 <Jake> I'll alert all the major news networks
17:22:39 <Dave from B> Morning everyone
17:23:46 <ynpvisitor66> Jake - can one change their username in GT?
17:23:52 <ynpvisitor19> Are you sure it is morning? Nobody posted it.
17:25:10 <Jake> 66, no
17:25:45 <Dave from B> haha, 19
17:25:52 <Dave from B> It's morning somewhere
17:27:21 <Dave from B> So, if I move to a city that doesn't start with a B, I'm out of luck?
17:27:27 <Jake> rare & exotic geyser alert: another Ledge Geyser (Norris) report yesterday, it seems to be in an active phase right now
17:30:06 <ynpvisitor66> Thanks Jake, I'll keep my name I guess.
17:31:04 <ynpvisitor66> Let's hope Ledge continues thru Mem Day
17:54:05 <ynpvisitor66> .
17:58:58 <ynpvisitor59> any Grand news?
17:59:29 <ynpvisitor59> how does anyone know a Ledge interval today would be closed? Couldn't it be erupting at night too?
18:00:33 <ynpvisitor25> It was light enough to see Grand starting at 0500. Nothing seen in the last 5 hours.
18:00:37 <ynpvisitor66> no one said there were closed intervals yet
18:02:09 <ynpvisitor59> thanks 25
18:02:36 <ynpvisitor25> It should also be noted that Castle was a minor
18:02:45 <ynpvisitor59> I was going by FB, MA said someone go tomorrow to get a closed interval...yet we do not know if it has been going at night
18:02:54 <ynpvisitor59> tomorrow being today
18:03:48 <ynpvisitor25> It has been 20 years since I last saw Ledge. I wonder how it has changed.
18:04:25 <ynpvisitor25> I should clarify -- since I last saw it erupt
18:04:32 <Jake> I would guess a closed-ish interval
18:05:32 <ynpvisitor66> daylight only intervals would be a help in knowing what's going on
18:06:15 <ynpvisitor59> I agree 66, someone is there this morning
18:07:13 <ynpvisitor59> so Grand before 5, thought Dave M entered night times...
18:07:15 <ynpvisitor66> just read FB, she said interval, not closed interval
18:07:45 <ynpvisitor59> she encouraged someone to go today, saying need.closed.interval. I did read it
18:08:48 <ynpvisitor66> I have it open -"I can't go tomorrow- SOMEONE should go and keep an eye on things.... we. need. an. interval."
18:08:48 <ynpvisitor25> After teh moon set, it was too dark between about 0300 to 0500 to see the Grand area on teh webcam. I assume Grand erupted during that period.
18:09:06 <ynpvisitor25> As for Ledge, I hope someone gets up there.
18:09:35 <ynpvisitor59> thanks again 25, and as I said, someone is there this morning
18:09:42 <ynpvisitor66> MA's post says staff arrives on Friday, that will be good for daylight times
18:13:10 <ynpvisitor59> Steve E says he will be there Friday or Saturday
18:15:20 <ynpvisitor66> the more eyes the better
18:33:46 <ynpvisitor25> Grand 0451E
18:36:01 <ynpvisitor59> thanks

22:18:05 <Betty> hope Lion is not done yet...
23:08:13 <ynpvisitor3> .
23:10:39 <Dave from B> Finally found my desk
23:11:17 <Betty> hey Dave, you lost it ;-)
23:11:54 <Dave from B> Been working everywhere else today...playing with my new toy.....double chamber vacuum packing machine
23:17:09 <Betty> wow, sounds interesting
23:40:22 <ynpvisitor27> Selling shotgun shells Dave?
23:46:37 <Betty> LC ie
23:48:07 <Dave from B> haha 27:D
23:48:51 <Dave from B> For a VP machine, double chamber means you can be loading 1 chamber while other is vacuming.
23:50:11 <Betty> time to head out. Night all
23:50:19 <Dave from B> Nite Betty
23:51:30 <ynpvisitor77> castle

00:10:16 <Dave from B> Great news
00:10:35 <ynpvisitor15> 1144 start, per Bill Warnock on GT
00:18:13 <Dave from B> Almost to a Grand window
00:28:49 <ynpvisitor87> Happy Castle
00:34:53 <Dave from B> Good evening, Graham...Belated congrats to the Caps.
00:35:28 <Graham> thanks Dave. it was a good game, close to the end
00:35:34 <Graham> now we deal with the other NY
00:37:05 <Dave from B> Hard to feel like Isles deserved to win...0-14 on powerplay for the series
00:37:39 <Graham> made me nervous when they got a powerplay near the end
00:41:11 <Dave from B> Speaking of nervous...Kevin is 3 days away from another wedding...bet he is having fun about now.
01:01:20 <Graham> OF
01:21:38 <Dave from B> Time to head downstairs. Have a great evening everyone!
01:22:21 <Graham> bye Dave
01:22:50 <Graham> Grand
01:22:50 <kc (working)> nice
01:22:53 <Graham> DAVE COME BACK
01:23:45 <ynpvisitor15> No :(
01:23:54 <ynpvisitor15> Bill's photos of Ledge, holy crap!
01:24:04 <Graham> SC
01:32:41 <ynpvisitor83> Are the photos of Ledge posted anywhere? When did it erupt?
01:33:46 <Graham> they are on Facebook
01:33:59 <ynpvisitor83> : (
01:34:04 <Graham> and GeyserTimes.org has the times
01:34:34 <Graham> they are good, nothing to be :( about
01:34:59 <Graham> MA and Bill posted pics for the last 2 eruptions seen
01:35:17 <ynpvisitor83> no, I don't facebook
01:35:19 <Graham> http://geysertimes.org/geyser.php?id=Ledge
01:35:40 <Graham> ok :(
01:36:51 <ynpvisitor83> Wow I didn't realize it had been active in 2015. Norris is always a must stop, now it is a must must stop.
01:40:12 <ynpvisitor83> Has there been other unusual activity at Norris? I caught the last steam phase of Steamboat having missed the eruption : ( But being in Yellowstone : )
01:41:20 <Graham> no other odd reports from Norris that I have heard of
01:41:37 <Graham> but its still early in the season
01:41:44 <Graham> Steamboat was fun last year
01:42:40 <ynpvisitor83> It would have been fantastic to see it. I went the next day and still couldn't get a parking space.
01:43:04 <Graham> lots of space there at 0030
01:43:19 <Graham> more NPS vehicles than others tho
01:43:40 <Graham> I think lots of ppl stopped there that day
01:44:04 <ynpvisitor83> So was there notice (if you will) that an eruption was a possibility?
01:44:24 <Graham> nobody said they saw anything
01:44:50 <Graham> but most people didnt spend much time checking - including myself
01:47:23 <ynpvisitor83> Does Geyser times send out real time information if indicators indicate that an eruption may occur for a geyser not currently active say Morning for example?
01:48:11 <Graham> some people enter notes, but its hard to predict
01:48:13 <ynpvisitor76> It's really hard to predict when certain rare features are going to erupt or come out of dormancy.
01:48:46 <Graham> theres the email alert system too, I think it was used when Steamboat erupted or when Giantess went
01:49:26 <Graham> email/text system link is on the GT Resources page
01:49:35 <ynpvisitor83> Thanks
01:49:35 <ynpvisitor76> And if something like Steamboat erupts, that eruption or some sort of note in the case of an unknown time will be logged into GT pretty quick.
01:49:53 <Graham> I am guessing the word would get out when Giant has a hot period or Splendid erupts
01:50:37 <Graham> yeah when Steamboat went, GT ws updated, the text/email went out, and a geysers.org email went out, and it was posted on FB
01:50:57 <Graham> as well as the VRS and phone calls in the UGB
01:51:20 <Graham> and Madison campground drive through to get some ppl there
01:51:21 <Will B> geysers.org email?
01:51:56 <Graham> oh no, sorry Will. The geyser listserve
01:52:09 <Graham> Not sure if it was posted on geysers.org
01:53:11 <Graham> how incoherent was Micah when he called Will?
01:53:41 <Will B> i was probably the more incoherent as i was about to get into bed
01:54:38 <Graham> you didnt get much sleep tho did you
01:56:01 <Will B> nope none at all that night
02:11:18 <Will B> Yeah first clap of thunder for the year!
02:21:02 <Graham> Uncertain

02:35:25 <Graham> OF
02:35:42 <ynpvisitor99> nice light!
02:36:05 <ynpvisitor25> If only Daisy had waited until after OF so we could see it close up too.
02:36:32 <ynpvisitor25> But you are correct. Really nice light
02:36:39 <ynpvisitor99> I'll settle for BH
02:37:07 <ynpvisitor25> ;)
02:43:17 <ynpvisitor32> We could miss BH if it does a no indy again
02:45:23 <ynpvisitor32> Anemone
02:53:27 <Graham> lc
