13:37:51 <Betty> Daisy
14:02:16 <ynpvisitor74> looks like it might be a good day to run up to yellowstone and stay up all night with it too.
14:03:24 <Betty> morning, yeah, maybe you should do this :-)
14:04:01 <Tsun> full moon, the weather forcast only indicates a few hours of rain at 9 pm to midnight
14:05:09 <Betty> I wish I could do that too
14:30:46 <Graham> morning
14:43:31 <Graham> Grand?

15:48:06 <ynpvisitor64> Very big lag between control and public stream right now
16:04:44 <ynpvisitor4> Betty, is the cam still down every night for a few hours?
16:08:01 <ynpvisitor67> It is down from 0115 to 0245
16:17:56 <ynpvisitor4> Thank you 67
16:22:37 <ynpvisitor64> Daisy will be 0821 if the public stream ever catches up
16:22:46 <Betty> sorry, 4. Was afk
16:23:16 <Betty> I can see Daisy
16:23:51 <Betty> it is just in time
16:23:51 <ynpvisitor64> May be my machine. I will reset
16:24:42 <Betty> hey Kevin. How was the reception?
16:25:49 <Kevin L> Not too bad. Some clouds moved in and cooled things down, but there was some stong wind.
16:28:05 <Kevin L> Got about 1000 boxes of stuff in the house right now.
16:28:24 <Betty> nice
16:29:57 <Kevin L> I think my wife overbought stuff. I think we have enough cold cuts & cheese to feed an Army for a week or so. I think I know what I will be eating for a while.

16:56:55 <Betty> at least we got it for short. Better than nothing
16:57:24 <Kevin L> Very true
16:57:43 <Kevin L> We have a time on it.
16:57:51 <Betty> yup
16:58:12 <Kevin L> 10 seconds later we would not have known.
17:02:14 <ynpvisitor4> A little encouragement out of Beehive would be nice at this point
17:03:13 <Kevin L> It would be nice!

17:47:04 <ynpvisitor4> On of the advantages is you get to play when things are quiet
17:52:27 <Kevin L> Not goping to miss much now.
17:52:51 <Kevin L> We need a moose to wander by
17:52:55 <Betty> Lion looks ready
17:53:04 <ynpvisitor4> I'm hoping for Lion before 10
17:53:14 <Betty> and BH
17:53:34 <Betty> oh.
17:53:46 <Betty> it´s almost 10
17:54:27 <Kevin L> I leave about 1100 so it will probably go after that.
17:54:49 <ynpvisitor4> I figured that was Beehive luggage

22:07:01 <Kent> Hi Betty

03:46:32 <kcmule> daisy 19:46
03:46:36 <ynpvisitor54> Its wind.Here is the link to the Old Faithful Helicorder Sysmograph to watch for Earthquakes: http://www.seis.utah.edu/helicorder/yft_webi.htm

03:53:45 <ynpvisitor12> Thanks! Am posting link to my desktop, seems like it's been pretty busy lately
03:55:49 <ynpvisitor54> Its actually calmed down A-LOT in the past week. We have large Solar Flare elerts On the 7th of May so activity could increase then. Here is another neat link that displays ever earthquake and catastrophy worldwide around the clock http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/index2.php:
03:56:28 <ynpvisitor12> not pulling up
03:57:15 <ynpvisitor12> got it, no colon at end
03:57:31 <ynpvisitor54> Lol sorry about that
03:57:33 <ynpvisitor12> Whoa!!!
03:58:38 <ynpvisitor54> Yeah its been VERY active around the world, especially the ring of fire lately.
03:59:13 <ynpvisitor54> I watched the Nepal quake strike on this map as soon as it hit
04:00:34 <ynpvisitor12> I had no idea! That site is too much to even comprehend all of that happening today?!
04:02:37 <ynpvisitor54> Most of it. The long term heppenings stay on the map until it ends.
04:02:56 <ynpvisitor54> But all the earthquakes are within 24 hours
04:03:42 <ynpvisitor12> I was clueless!
04:05:09 <ynpvisitor54> Its pretty awesome how alive the earth is though. A small Solar Filaiment hit earth on the 22 on March which causes increased activity for earthquakes and volcanoes and that was the same day Calbuco exploded
04:05:31 <ynpvisitor54> I'm sorry 22 of April not march
04:05:47 <ynpvisitor12> I didn't know they were related
04:06:41 <ynpvisitor54> Yeah, its because the ozone can't keep all of the energy out, so the small amount that does get through effects the core
04:07:22 <ynpvisitor12> You're a good teacher,
04:07:59 <ynpvisitor12> How long have we known that the two are a connected?
04:08:55 <ynpvisitor54> Haha Thanks. Its become a Hobby of mine over the years, since the Tsunami in Indonesia on dec 26 2004.
04:09:54 <ynpvisitor54> For Quite some time now. Its still a small connection between the two, but it does have impact
04:11:12 <ynpvisitor12> Is there a connection between one plate shifting and then the one next to it shifting... it just seems like something happens in the so. hemisphere and next thing you know something big happens in CA
04:12:03 <ynpvisitor12> Of course that's coming from someone that doesn't follow these things... until now perhaps
04:12:07 <ynpvisitor54> Actually some scientists believe that the whole world is in the process of a massive shift in all of the plates occuring,
04:14:05 <ynpvisitor54> Which is the reason for the spike in earthquakes and volcanoes...especially volcanoes. There is one off the coast of oregon undersea that is erupting. Michigan experienced its first ever recorded earquake yesterday that was a mag 3.7
04:14:16 <ynpvisitor12> I tend to agree with that, but are there other things like gases or magnetic changes, or low sounds that can clue us in on the timing? Of course a musician would wonder if there's sound involved!! ha ha
04:15:37 <ynpvisitor12> I find this fascinating
04:16:08 <ynpvisitor54> There are A variety of factors, and all of those are some on the list, but in all honesty the only earthquakes we can really explain are the ones in Oklahoma, which are man made from Fracking in the Oil Fields. We cannot predict or run from Earthquakes
04:16:55 <ynpvisitor12> I knew you were going to say fracking - how can they still allow that with earthquakes as a result!
04:17:28 <ynpvisitor54> Because Oil is worth more than Life to them lol
04:18:18 <ynpvisitor12> ugh
04:21:47 <lt> just for the record, Michigan had a 3.5 near Lansing in 1994.
04:22:36 <lt> nice sunset
04:23:51 <ynpvisitor54> I stand corrected! Lol but like i said its just a hobby. Yes it is a beautiful sunset!
04:24:34 <lt> no worries, I just figured I would get the info out there. :) it is true that MI is not a common earthquake state.
04:24:56 <lt> versus, say, OK being earthquake central these days
04:28:26 <ynpvisitor54> Yeah OK is constantly shaking now it seems. Texas had two 3.5 mags today also, and thats not very common for them either
04:30:37 <lt> CA at least had a respectably sized one today. we were starting to feel left out.
04:31:56 <ynpvisitor54> Lol I saw that, A 4.0! They have hundreds of small ones a day, but that was the most significant one I had seen in a few weeks
04:32:57 <ynpvisitor54> We got a AWESOME harvest moon here in ND tonight!
04:33:28 <lt> I was able to turn the AC off today? I miss seasons.
04:35:12 <ynpvisitor54> Yeah, I feel bad for you guys there with that drought going on. We are in the beginning stages of one it feels like since we hardly got any snow this winter and only one rain storm so far this spring
04:36:39 <ynpvisitor12> how often does OF go off?
04:36:44 <ynpvisitor54> Plus North Dakota is known for its awesome (not so awesome) wind, which doesn't help with the dry spell, so we are under complete fire restrictions, so probly no fireworks this year
04:37:53 <ynpvisitor54> Intervals are 80 mins average I believe
04:38:36 <Michael> ynpvisitor12 -- Old Fiathful goes about every 90 minutes. If it has a short eruption, the next one is more like 65 minutes later instead.
04:39:26 <lt> last was a long, per GT, so...we're still ok, probably
04:40:49 <Michael> Meanwhile, we're hoping to see if Grand Geyser will erupt before it gets too dark.
04:44:41 <lt> Lion thinking there? or just being a tease?
04:45:51 <Michael> Good question. I can't tell the difference until it's too late.
04:46:33 <lt> we're on the earlier side for it
04:46:33 <lt> but
04:53:18 <ynpvisitor15> still no Grand?
04:53:31 <lt> nope
04:53:32 <Michael> Not since I showed up (20 mins ago)
04:53:47 <ynpvisitor15> looks steamy over there now
04:54:02 <Michael> Spasmodic is the main culprit, I think.
04:54:14 <ynpvisitor87> Jake is out there last Turban 2041
04:54:46 <ynpvisitor15> oh good, even if we do not see it, Jake will post it
04:57:45 <lt> someone needs to poke the sleeping lion with a stick
04:57:51 <lt> I nominate someone other than me
04:58:25 <ynpvisitor15> Lion says, I had a good series, enough is enough
04:58:38 <lt> quite likely
04:58:50 <ynpvisitor15> that was a nice long series
04:59:24 <ynpvisitor15> still huffing though
04:59:54 <ynpvisitor87> turban time also
04:59:59 <ynpvisitor15> Turban time?
05:00:11 <ynpvisitor87> time for it to erupt
05:00:26 <ynpvisitor15> nice OF start
05:00:27 <lt> may be erupting. oh and OF.
05:00:28 <ynpvisitor87> OF2100
05:00:51 <Michael> Old Faithful with the surprise quick start.
05:00:55 <ynpvisitor87> bye bye view of lion
