09:33:58 <ynpvisitor28> Massive Earthquake 7.4 in Nepal 10 mins ago
14:50:30 <ynpvisitor18> I have bus duty in about 10m so watch for BH
15:19:41 <Dave from B> Captn Bunzo, PLEASE fix this page. IE still doesn't like it.
15:46:38 <ynpvisitor30> bhi
15:46:40 <ynpvisitor30> l
15:47:11 <Dave from B> Hard to see water today
15:50:15 <Dave from B> Morning all...are you ready for a fuzzball?
15:50:17 <Kitt> ok bee, I'm ready for the show
15:50:58 <Kitt> everybody blow
15:52:20 <Kitt> I can see indy now
15:52:50 <Kitt> hm, looks humid and lacking breeze
15:55:10 <ynpvisitor18> At least I beat it!
15:55:12 <Kitt> well, the breeze did shift
15:55:44 <ynpvisitor56> do you think that is Jim?
15:55:59 <Kitt> good morning Kevin
15:56:17 <Kitt> couldn't tell
15:56:25 <Kitt> they were in a dark jacket
15:57:04 <Kevin L> Morning Kitt
15:57:23 <Kitt> come on bee, time for me to get to work
15:57:40 <Kevin L> Work?
15:57:58 <Kitt> yes Kevin, not everyone can be retired
15:58:05 <Kitt> boom
15:58:14 <Kitt> Beehive
15:58:33 <Kevin L> Lot of people do tell me I am a tired individual....
15:59:01 <Kevin L> My first BH in a week.
16:00:08 <Kitt> fuzzy, but still this is 3 days in a row
16:00:25 <Kitt> nice start to my day
16:00:31 <Kitt> have a good day everyone
16:00:57 <Kevin L> Funny thing, if I would not have had bus duty this morning I would have missed it. I take back half the bad things I said about her!
16:01:00 <ynpvisitor56> you too Kitt
16:01:06 <Kevin L> bye Kitt
16:12:19 <Kevin L> OF
16:28:35 <ynpvisitor45> ^
16:32:54 <Dave from B> Kevin, I loved the USB Stick for Seniors!
16:33:09 <Kevin L> I thought you would get a kick out of that.
16:36:14 <Dave from B> Hi, Jenna...caught up on your sleep yet?
16:37:35 <Jenna> no. I actually feel more tired today if that makes sense.
16:43:26 <Kevin L> I sent you some pics Jenna
16:44:54 <Jenna> got them, thanks! my uncle gave me more tracks and trains over the weekend so I'll have to send some pics back.
16:45:31 <Kevin L> Sounds fun. Bet Conor is having fun.
16:45:47 <Jenna> he loved them
16:46:00 <Jenna> keeps saying they're delicate
16:47:12 <Kevin L> As long as he treats them that way he should be good. I still have some of the N scale (called Treble O back then) that I got in 1963.
16:47:43 <Jenna> he's not too bad at it but still needs to be reminded
16:49:31 <Kevin L> He should get better with time.
16:57:44 <Jenna> he will. I think he's already better than a lot of 4 yr olds.
17:04:29 <Dave from B> Most parents think that, Jenna!:)
17:07:49 <Jenna> haha yes I am biased
17:09:10 <Dave from B> No shame in that
17:09:36 <Jenna> he did pretty good as the ring bearer this weekend
17:10:44 <ynpvisitor45> .
17:28:31 <Kevin L> I forgot you had a wedding this weekend. Bet you didn't get snowed in though.
17:28:59 <Jenna> nope :) it was 75, partly cloudy and perfect
17:29:56 <Kevin L> Mine was totally ugly, but I did have a nice but long ride home the next day.
17:33:34 <Jenna> I had a sort of long ride the next day as well, we went to a concert Sunday night
17:45:35 <Kevin L> We left Denver around 0900 and got home about 2345. Wife had to be at work at 0700 the next day. :p
17:50:33 <Jenna> mine wasn't fun either, left concert at midnight, got home at 4 am, had to work at 9
17:50:43 <Jenna> we all need time off to recover from our time off
17:51:09 <Kevin L> I can relate to that. I just considered this a working trip.
17:52:20 <Kevin L> OF 0952
17:52:32 <Kevin L> Big fuzzball.
17:55:09 <Kevin L> Grand?
17:55:42 <Jenna> timing seems about right
17:55:53 <ynpvisitor30> lmaybe Oblong?
17:55:57 <Jenna> the 415 comment probably needs to be a little earlier
17:56:13 <Kevin L> Haven't seen any spikes though
17:56:16 <Jenna> oblong is on GT now
17:56:20 <Jenna> at 953
17:56:34 <Jenna> maybe Grand will be soon then
17:56:34 <Kevin L> That would work.
17:59:26 <Jimbo> Before the pullback, I saw lots of water splashing out of Sprinkler. That's one of my favorite little geysers, almost always active.
18:06:01 <ynpvisitor7> Grand Prediction isn't until 1100, so Jim's note must have been very close to the E time
18:06:35 <ynpvisitor7> Unless they are using that note for the prediction...
18:06:42 <Kevin L> Looks like Grotto
18:07:49 <ynpvisitor30> Or they could just be using an approximate double interval to predict Grand
18:08:27 <ynpvisitor30> The fun one is the quitupple Daisy interval
18:08:36 <ynpvisitor30> quintupple
18:08:58 <ynpvisitor30> quintuple
18:09:12 <ynpvisitor30> ugh
18:09:36 <Kevin L> Hope we get e times. I know staff is short
18:09:46 <ynpvisitor6> Jim being there is sure to help.
18:09:52 <ynpvisitor7> No Daisy prediction on the app
18:10:17 <Kevin L> Jim is alwas a help
18:10:54 <ynpvisitor7> There is a Castle one, that might be a double as well
18:11:39 <ynpvisitor7> It is going to be different (and GOOD) having Jim post times to GT!
18:11:58 <ynpvisitor6> Yes. that is huge.
18:12:14 <ynpvisitor6> I know the GT peeps have been working on getting him onboard with posting for a while.
18:12:29 <Kevin L> I love the feet on the ground reports.
18:12:32 <ynpvisitor7> His second day of posting, he seems to have the hang of it
18:13:10 <ynpvisitor7> He has been pretty cute about his new phone!
18:17:18 <ynpvisitor6> Looks like Will's up at Norris. Or was at least an hour ago.
18:18:14 <ynpvisitor7> He has to check in at Mammoth today, so he was on his way
18:18:25 <ynpvisitor6> gotcha. Thanks 7.
18:18:38 <ynpvisitor6> I can hardly keep track of him, it was hard enough even when we were in the same Park.
18:18:57 <ynpvisitor7> I bet he pops back into Norris on his way back
18:25:55 <ynpvisitor30> daisy
18:26:19 <ynpvisitor6> beautiful.
18:26:41 <ynpvisitor79> no more quintuple interval :-)
18:28:37 <ynpvisitor30> but the quintuple worked pretty good
18:31:23 <ynpvisitor79> good thing it is a regular geyser...get's it's fill of fiber
18:32:00 <ynpvisitor79> now if we could just pump some of that fiber into giantess :-P
18:32:27 <ynpvisitor6> *shakes fist at the hill*
19:16:29 <ynpvisitor55> too bad Jim does not post Turban times...
19:17:01 <ynpvisitor30> last one was about 5 minutes ago
19:17:25 <ynpvisitor30> I think
19:19:12 <Kevin L> of
19:19:48 <ynpvisitor55> maybe the cam globe will get cleaned today....
19:29:48 <ynpvisitor55> Turban?
19:29:59 <ynpvisitor30> looks like it
19:30:19 <ynpvisitor6> Anemone
19:30:21 <ynpvisitor55> steam gone now
19:30:46 <ynpvisitor55> AG gets the Anemone call
19:32:19 <ynpvisitor6> "Now that's a name I haven't heard in a long time"
19:34:58 <ynpvisitor55> I figured only AG would shake his fist at Giantess...
19:36:11 <Betty> hi all
19:36:19 <Kevin L> Hi
19:36:24 <Betty> Riverside
19:37:04 <ynpvisitor6> AG shakes his fist at a lot of geysers 55. Sadly this summer it will be through the computer screen instead of in person
19:39:29 <ynpvisitor55> I meant it sounded like AG guy...
19:39:45 <ynpvisitor55> and you are coming, for 3 weeks, right? or has that changed now?
19:39:58 <ynpvisitor6> definitely not going to be 3.
19:40:12 <ynpvisitor6> perhaps only 1. If at all. It all depends on if I can get a job.
19:45:55 <ynpvisitor55> oh drat, I had heard you were coming for 3 weeks....Jim S was sad to hear you were not coming
19:56:51 <ynpvisitor79> SC
20:14:58 <ynpvisitor55> sure wish we had a Grand E time
20:20:07 <Kevin L> And a bottle of Windex
20:21:19 <Betty> 0413 E time from Will
20:21:38 <Betty> Grand now at 8h
20:21:46 <ynpvisitor79> wowza
20:21:51 <ynpvisitor55> thanks Betty
20:21:58 <Betty> yw
20:22:05 <Kevin L> Jim had a great guess
20:22:25 <ynpvisitor55> he is good
20:22:43 <ynpvisitor55> what do we call that, an EDUCATED guess!
20:23:04 <ynpvisitor79> So Grand should be popping up here any moment....
20:23:19 <Betty> guess so
20:23:25 <ynpvisitor55> he he
20:23:59 <Dave from B> Kevin, aren't you leaving soon?:)
20:24:01 <ynpvisitor55> meanwhile, Aurum could entertain us...
20:24:08 <Kevin L> At least it is a nice day for a wait
20:24:50 <Kevin L> You still toasting Betty?
20:25:09 <Betty> cooling down tomorrow
20:25:26 <Betty> we had 88 today
20:25:38 <Kevin L> We are supposed to be in the 60s Friday!
20:26:37 <Betty> How can you live in that cold? You should move to a warmer place :-)
20:27:19 <Dave from B> When I hear Betty is toasting I'm thinking about beer...not the weather
20:27:30 <Kevin L> NOT Denver. That is for sure!
20:28:07 <Kevin L> Hey Dave did you see who is driving the 18 this week?
20:28:09 <Betty> lol
20:29:21 <ynpvisitor79> Still no turban time :-(
20:30:02 <ynpvisitor55> Will may have gone to work
20:30:38 <ynpvisitor79> thanks 55
20:31:06 <ynpvisitor79> that looks like turban
20:31:14 <ynpvisitor55> let's see if Will posts it
20:31:18 <Dave from B> Who's driving the 18?
20:31:28 <Kevin L> Kyle!
20:31:53 <Will B> I have work in 30min
20:31:56 <Dave from B> In Sprint All Star race?
20:31:58 <Will B> not out in basin atm
20:32:10 <ynpvisitor79> K.
20:33:10 <ynpvisitor79> Maybe a grand will pop at 1248 if we are lucky.
20:33:14 <Kevin L> Whichever race they are doing.
20:33:31 <ynpvisitor55> here is to a great season for you Will
20:33:36 <ynpvisitor79> LC ie
20:34:08 <Dave from B> Kevin, is Kyle still eligible for Sprint Cup if he wins a race?
20:34:15 <Betty> Anemone
20:34:21 <Kevin L> I believe so.
20:35:18 <Kevin L> What is funny is Kurt is ahead of his boss in just points and he has run 3 fewer races!
20:36:33 <Dave from B> He has had a good run the past 5 weeks
20:37:31 <Betty> Turban?
20:37:43 <Kevin L> It was sure fun those two ran cars at the Vegas short track.
20:38:17 <Kevin L> Bus duty in 10m so Grand will probably wait until then.
20:38:46 <ynpvisitor55> we need vw
20:39:18 <Betty> yes, right, 55. I miss vw
20:39:20 <ynpvisitor30> I thought for sure Grand would go on teh Turban :(
20:39:40 <Dave from B> I miss vw, lc and cb
20:40:10 <Betty> yes, Dave :-(
20:40:15 <ynpvisitor55> lc has left chat, maybe he could not handle the IE issues
20:41:08 <ynpvisitor55> maybe Grand was waiting for the rain to start
20:41:15 <Mario> Aurum?
20:41:25 <ynpvisitor55> nope
20:41:31 <ynpvisitor45> I think they are here, just not visible
20:41:40 <Mario> nope that's not right
20:44:31 <Betty> Lion
20:44:32 <Kevin L> vw was great to have around. She was always a lot of fun.
20:45:09 <Kevin L> OF window.
20:46:14 <Betty> nice light on Lion
20:46:54 <Kevin L> Lion initials are so good anyway.
20:46:54 <ynpvisitor55> a lot of people for May 12
20:47:44 <ynpvisitor55> and a mid week day in May
20:49:54 <Kevin L> Time to go. If there is a camop out there lurking grab it if something good goes.
20:50:39 <ynpvisitor30> let me know when you get back
20:53:34 <Betty> Daisy
20:53:37 <ynpvisitor55> Daisy
20:54:15 <ynpvisitor55> wonder if Grand will make it to 9 hours...
20:56:17 <ynpvisitor79> OF
20:56:57 <Betty> like out of a nozzle
20:57:47 <ynpvisitor55> you mean it isn't?
20:58:38 <ynpvisitor30> after the fuzz balls we've been seeing today -- I was beginning to wonder
20:59:03 <Betty> it had a BH character
20:59:24 <ynpvisitor55> 22 minutes since last suspected Turban
20:59:33 <ynpvisitor55> I was just kidding you Betty.
20:59:40 <Betty> :-p
21:04:54 <Betty> a chipmunk on bw
21:05:43 <Mario> Marmot
21:05:55 <Betty> cute
21:05:55 <ynpvisitor55> not a marmot
21:06:03 <Mario> no that's a chipmunk
21:06:09 <Mario> I'm getting everything wrong today
21:06:16 <Mario> I better stop posting
21:06:48 <ynpvisitor45> golden manted ground squirrel? or tiny like a chipmunk
21:06:51 <Betty> no, why should you stop?
21:07:47 <ynpvisitor30> Golden-mantled ground squirrel
21:08:14 <ynpvisitor30> At least that is what it looked like to me. But I could be convinced otherwise
21:08:27 <Betty> it was cute
21:08:51 <ynpvisitor30> yep
21:08:57 <Betty> :-)
21:09:19 <ynpvisitor30> It has been frequenting that corner for a while.
21:09:27 <Kevin L> back
21:09:42 <ynpvisitor30> ok
21:09:44 <Betty> maybe the nest is underneath the bw
21:09:57 <ynpvisitor30> probably
21:10:13 <ynpvisitor30> they try to hide away from the coyotes
21:10:47 <Betty> havenĀ“t seen a coyote on cam since opening
21:11:12 <Kevin L> I thought for sure that Grand or Aurum would have gone.
21:11:23 <Kevin L> There were a couple last week.
21:11:30 <Betty> only Daisy and OF
21:12:18 <ynpvisitor30> don't forget the rodent
21:12:53 <Kevin L> Grand is really being a pain today.
21:13:11 <Betty> it learned from Aurum
21:13:12 <ynpvisitor45> just in time for the Memorial Day gazers...
21:13:43 <ynpvisitor55> 9 hours for Grand now...
21:14:44 <ynpvisitor55> at least it got nicer instead of rainy
21:16:41 <Kevin L> Strong winds here today 23G41. About blew my van off the road.
21:17:43 <Kevin L> But NOR snow!
21:20:23 <Betty> SC
21:21:22 <ynpvisitor79> Grand
21:21:22 <ynpvisitor79> .
21:21:23 <ynpvisitor79> .
21:21:23 <ynpvisitor79> .
21:21:24 <ynpvisitor79> .
21:21:32 <ynpvisitor79> Nice ini
21:21:52 <Betty> finally
21:22:16 <Betty> Kevin, throw away the noDoz
21:22:21 <ynpvisitor79> haha
21:22:24 <ynpvisitor79> bah
21:22:48 <Betty> :-D
21:23:12 <Kevin L> Controls weren't working
21:23:34 <ynpvisitor79> Looks like another SC dual :-)
21:29:17 <Mario> What were the original dueling geysers? Daisy & Splendid?
21:33:27 <Kevin L> Looks like 1b
21:33:43 <Mario> 1 burst
21:33:54 <ynpvisitor30> after all that wait
21:34:11 <Dave from B> Did I miss something?
21:34:23 <Kevin L> Plume
21:35:22 <Mario> I really miss Plume
21:35:26 <Dave from B> VERY FUNNY Kevin
21:35:47 <Kevin L> Well I miss Plume too.
21:36:17 <Betty> we all miss Plume
21:37:07 <Dave from B> I hope Ledge isn't going to be the Top Geyser Story of 2015
21:37:28 <Mario> Since it's like a eulogy, did anyone ever walk right up to a surprise 1st Plume burst?
21:39:04 <Dave from B> One of my favorite things was to watch the shock of a Plume to someone who had their back turned.
21:41:44 <Mario> Where else is there a relatively frequent geyser close to the boardwalk or trail that gives no warning at all? What a great geyser.
21:51:42 <ynpvisitor45> It's dead, Jim.
21:51:59 <Betty> LOL
21:52:14 <ynpvisitor45> ^^forgot the quotes
21:52:30 <Betty> one of the best!
21:52:44 <ynpvisitor45> :)
21:53:05 <Betty> yes, Bones, I know
21:53:56 <Betty> Bones is Pille in German
21:54:03 <ynpvisitor45> haha
21:55:07 <ynpvisitor45> Dave from B, the Ledge report of 73 minutes of water is pretty darn impressicve, Steamboat only had 9 :P
21:57:23 <Jenna> Lion
21:58:20 <Dave from B> 45, the reason I said that about Ledge is thaT i'M HOPING FOR gINAT OR SOMETHING ELSE BIG TO ACTIVATE.
21:58:55 <Dave from B> OOPS
21:59:38 <Jenna> I didn't know you felt that strongly about it :)
21:59:39 <Dave from B> That's is Giant for anyone who doesn't understand my language
21:59:40 <Betty> gINAT sounds like sPINAT
21:59:46 <Dave from B> :D
22:00:00 <Kevin L> WE KNowwhat you are SAYING Dvae
22:00:08 <Betty> lol, Jenna
22:00:09 <Dave from B> I need a keyboard that has keys twice as large as normal
22:00:16 <ynpvisitor41> what basin is sPINAT in?
22:00:41 <Betty> Popeye eats it ;-)
22:00:53 <Betty> spinache?
22:01:20 <Betty> spinach
22:01:21 <Dave from B> I'm glad no one else is in the wholesale office right now.
22:03:09 <Jenna> I do have customers in here unfortunately
22:03:32 <Jenna> although my laughing silently skills have greatly improved since "joining" this page
22:03:51 <Betty> hahaha
22:03:53 <Dave from B> Had a new employee start Monday...so far I'm really impressed. She even knew how to put a new pic on FB.
22:04:02 <Betty> perfect in grinning
22:06:09 <ynpvisitor61> D11 on Grand, holy heck
22:07:14 <ynpvisitor45> did u see this - http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/yellowstone/faqs_misconceptions.html
22:08:19 <ynpvisitor61> A great post!! Too bad it will not go viral
22:08:59 <ynpvisitor45> I will click into all those links, eventually. educational
22:13:27 <Dave from B> ..
22:15:17 <ynpvisitor45> .
22:19:20 <Kevin L> Bus duty #2
22:30:08 <Betty> LC ie
22:33:13 <Kevin L> back
22:34:28 <ynpvisitor79> OF
22:34:37 <Dave from B> You missed falling water
22:34:52 <ynpvisitor79> it makes sense that Grand was D11, it was over 9 hour intervval
22:45:11 <Betty> time to head out. Enjoy your evening
22:45:24 <Kevin L> Night Betty.
23:01:48 <Kevin L> Lion is trying
23:37:29 <kc (working)> 6.8 eq in japan, rang our seismo a bit
23:38:07 <Kevin L> Lot of rock & Roll on the seismo today.
23:38:38 <kc (working)> yeah im sure nepal could do without
23:39:13 <Kevin L> What the first one didn't get the 2nd one probably did.
23:56:33 <Dave from B> Time to head to the market. Have a great day everyone!
23:57:23 <Kevin L> To market, to market to buy a fat fish, the go home swish swish swish.....
23:57:53 <Dave from B> haha
23:59:10 <ynpvisitor79> OF is playing hard
00:12:47 <Kevin L> of
00:21:51 <lt> I gotta say, Kevin, if the current trend continues you have made a believer out of me on that ant bait. I put some out yesterday and have see approximately 3 ants today, down from 40+ yesterday
00:22:24 <Kevin L> That stuff is great!
00:22:41 <Kevin L> One of the guys that worked for me told me about it.
00:23:13 <lt> I am being careful because I am using it indoor and we have kitties, so it's in a little container I can clean up once we've been ant-free for a bit. but I am very hopeful it continues
00:23:34 <lt> and once they're gone I'll look at getting the toilets replaced and hopefully that section resealed
00:23:52 <Kevin L> That should work. I did use it indoors and it solved a problem I had for years.
00:24:42 <lt> my fingers are majorly crossed it continues. I won't be a full believer until we're ant clear for at least two weeks, but I'm hopeful!
00:25:11 <lt> so thanks. :)
00:26:05 <Kevin L> NP. Hope it keeps working for you. I got mine about 4 years ago. Used half of it the first 6 mos and still have about a third left!
00:29:55 <Kevin L> Well, I have to get some chores done. If there is a lurking camop that wants to take it, feel free. I will keep an eye on it, but may be away for a bit.
01:08:33 <Kevin L> Looks nasty.
01:19:35 <Kevin L> Could get a whit on black OF
01:20:23 <ynpvisitor45> .
01:39:27 <ynpvisitor45> .
01:59:17 <Kevin L> What is that behind the tree line?
