16:00:55 <ynpvisitor92> No BH info. I wonder if it didn't go last night.
16:01:37 <ynpvisitor52> very foggy last night and this morning. Only cleard up a short while ago
16:13:55 <Jenna> OF 0813
16:14:52 <ynpvisitor92> Temp 41 Humidity 100%
16:47:21 <ynpvisitor92> Sounds like BH was dead at 0530 so it probably went overnight.
17:42:55 <ynpvisitor92> Depression looks ie
17:44:17 <ynpvisitor52> you're feed is really lagging. It was ie at 0937 -- got a nice close view of bursts
17:44:52 <ynpvisitor92> Probably should refresh
18:00:49 <kc (working)> penta 0955
18:07:44 <ynpvisitor86> I have ne ver spent time watching people at the basin, rather watch hot water.
18:08:02 <ynpvisitor86> Where do all those people go after of? Back to the day lodge or what?
18:08:15 <ynpvisitor86> Grotto maybe
18:08:27 <ynpvisitor86> Wrong, ment to say oblong
18:17:39 <ynpvisitor86> Maybe it was
18:17:44 <ynpvisitor86> Grotto
18:19:33 <ynpvisitor37> I have it on good authority that after OF erupts ALL the people on the boardwalk head for the Geyser Grill.
18:26:18 <ynpvisitor86> Kind of figured they hit the parking lot and bus tours. Or head down to that famous feature Morning Glory.
18:29:26 <ynpvisitor92> Some get lost and end up on Geyser Hill.
18:30:00 <ynpvisitor86> Very few
18:30:50 <ynpvisitor86> I think they hide under the boardwalk and come out for the next of
18:31:08 <ynpvisitor86> Now looks like oblong
18:47:34 <ynpvisitor92> Grand ie
18:48:50 <ynpvisitor86> Dave must be at fountian or something. Grand was on time
18:49:17 <Eric> haha
18:49:22 <ynpvisitor92> Maybe Artemesia
18:52:54 <ynpvisitor86> Back in the cabin getting into his bear suit
18:53:28 <ynpvisitor86> Or should that be BiFoot
18:53:49 <ynpvisitor92> KIng Crab?
18:54:13 <Eric> Lot of steam behind those trees this morning
18:58:37 <ynpvisitor86> He is only the King Crab when he works 12 hour days.
18:59:27 <ynpvisitor86> Well enjoy bh. Got to get things done
20:03:46 <Eric> Did BH possibly go overnight?
20:12:46 <ynpvisitor92> They think it did. was dry at 0530.
20:14:45 <Eric> Bummer...Dave was worried about it slipping into the night while he was there.
20:27:58 <ynpvisitor79> Daisy
20:31:33 <Eric> I guess we have no driver today :-(
20:32:59 <ynpvisitor92> Radar show snow in the Sierras
21:20:09 <ynpvisitor11> Really a 2 hour of?
21:27:48 <Eric> I doubt it
21:28:02 <Eric> No camop, so nobody has been recording of on GT
21:28:10 <Eric> Lion
21:28:30 <Eric> Looks like an ini
21:28:56 <ynpvisitor11> I thought I saw Lions on GT
21:29:27 <Eric> Nice big one
21:29:38 <Eric> There is now :-P
21:30:56 <Eric> Wish we could ZOOOM
21:32:08 <ynpvisitor92> Camops are thin during vacation time.
21:36:13 <Eric> Ya, I totally understand :-) and glad they can make it to the park too!
21:37:40 <ynpvisitor11> No cam opp, good time for indy to show its head. Think it will take the hint?
21:38:19 <ynpvisitor11> Brellas and ponchos. Must be rain
21:50:17 <ynpvisitor11> Lots of steam by Daisy
21:53:43 <Eric> OF
21:53:46 <Eric> ie
22:17:46 <ynpvisitor11> They are going to wait an hour for the next of?
22:18:50 <ynpvisitor52> did they miss that the previous was a short?
22:23:02 <Betty> good afternoon
22:23:33 <Jenna> hi Betty
22:23:47 <Betty> hey Jenna
22:24:00 <JAke> I saw DavefromB in person. He is real
22:24:33 <ynpvisitor92> Was he wearing a crab suit?
22:25:03 <Betty> lol
22:25:08 <kc (working)> thx for the autorefresh timeline JAke, mucho helpo
22:27:41 <Betty> my streaming is choppy for days :-(
22:27:59 <Eric> Hey betty, jenna, jake and kc :-)
22:28:16 <Eric> Nice GT posts yesterday Jake...you were everywhere!
22:28:22 <JAke> kcmule, still some kinks getting worked out on that
22:28:23 <Betty> hi Eric
22:28:52 <JAke> the Dave I saw was not in a crab suit so maybe it wasn't the real DavefromB
22:29:38 <Betty> how did he smell? Easy to point that out :-D
22:29:46 <Eric> hahaha
22:30:12 <ynpvisitor26> He is allergic to fish so he can sell it yet not smell like it!!
22:30:51 <Eric> snow?
22:30:53 <ynpvisitor52> run from the rain
22:30:57 <Betty> thought I saw Aurum for a second... but...no, maybe not
22:31:12 <ynpvisitor52> or hail
22:31:55 <ynpvisitor92> Yuck!
22:32:17 <Betty> Dave broke the weather
22:32:20 <ynpvisitor26> Dave said the VEC was calling tourists in from the basin because of lightning
22:32:26 <JAke> no hail yet
22:32:58 <ynpvisitor26> It was just hailing on the cam, or very big raindrops that looked like hail
22:33:15 <JAke> big raindrops for sure
22:33:47 <JAke> photo shop is packed with people right now
22:33:56 <Eric> I bet
22:34:49 <Betty> where is the photo shop located?
22:34:59 <ynpvisitor52> That is right, Rebecca was there when they aad the lightning hit on the OF benches. I'm sure she remembers that well. I can see her calling everyong in.
22:35:07 <ynpvisitor26> Too bad BH has moved to the dark side for Dave
22:35:19 <ynpvisitor92> .34" of rain in the last 24 hours. Probably about the same in the last 10m.
22:35:31 <JAke> right behind the webcam, between the VEC and the Lodge
22:36:05 <Betty> I need to know where I find you in september :-)
22:36:12 <Betty> thanks
22:36:22 <ynpvisitor92> It's alive!
22:36:27 <Eric> Lion is early
22:36:39 <Eric> Maybe the last one wasn't ini...
22:36:42 <Betty> nice
22:36:55 <Eric> Sure seemed like it.
22:37:10 <JAke> Udo was out calling the last one, sure started like an initial
22:37:18 <ynpvisitor52> last one was ini
22:37:21 <Eric> I agree...I called it the same
22:37:40 <Eric> but this second is about 8 minutes earlier than I would have expected
22:37:49 <ynpvisitor52> besides, the cam hasdn't moved for hours prior to the eruption and there were no Lion eruptions before that one.
22:38:22 <Eric> k, there was a lot of non-conversation and I wasn't watching...so I couldn't confirm
22:39:32 <ynpvisitor52> I cheated, I checked the recording
22:39:39 <Eric> :-)
22:39:57 <JAke> the post initial interval has varied by 10m this year
22:40:34 <ynpvisitor52> maybe we'll get more htan a two eruption series this time
22:41:33 <Eric> I cannot find another post ini that was anywhere near that short
22:41:48 <Eric> Maybe I didn't go back far enough though...
22:42:09 <ynpvisitor52> a decade ago is was quite common
22:42:18 <ynpvisitor52> is = it
22:42:42 <ynpvisitor52> or maybe it was two decades ago
22:42:48 <JAke> another sign of the impending supervolcano eruption
22:43:24 <Betty> for sure Jake. The end is near!
22:43:41 <Eric> haha, btw, next closest I could find was 1:12
22:44:14 <Eric> it's cool to see the nuances of the geysers :-)
22:52:29 <ynpvisitor92> Daisy
22:52:32 <ynpvisitor52> daisy
23:15:22 <Eric> graham start driving?
23:16:20 <JAke> the rain returns

23:22:19 <Graham> hi there, looks like a lovely day for Dave
23:22:35 <Betty> hi Graham

23:22:43 <Graham> hi Betty
23:23:08 <Betty> Dave broke the weather
23:26:39 <Graham> was nice while I was there until the last night
23:26:43 <Graham> didnt want meto leave
23:40:07 <JAke> OF outside the window now for all the cold rain waiters
23:42:23 <Graham> its rewarding them
23:42:36 <Graham> maybe going to have a short to throw in one more insult?
23:42:55 <Graham> did you have fun waiting for bee Jake?
23:43:35 <Graham> looking at the oblong intervals of past with the recent series, look at 1998 http://geyserstudy.org/geysers/OBLONG/eruptions/Oblong%20eruptions%20in%201998.txt
23:44:04 <Graham> intervals all over the place with some intervals. do a find on ", 00" to find the sub-hour intervals
23:49:04 <Graham> of
23:49:36 <Graham> is rain good for business Jake - not good for hiking tho
23:49:47 <ynpvisitor52> it's beautiful -- white and the contrast against the sky is breathtaking
23:50:46 <Betty> a short?
23:50:51 <JAke> ha, a short
23:50:51 <Graham> yep, its a short
23:50:54 <kc (working)> think so
23:51:40 <Graham> looked vbery short to me
23:52:04 <Betty> one of the shorter shorts
23:53:19 <Betty> time for sleep. Night all
23:53:38 <Graham> night betty
23:54:13 <Graham> nice to see the fire supression system is working
23:55:24 <Eric> Ya, but is the lightning causing more fires?
23:55:26 <kc (working)> 1552 aurum
23:55:31 <Graham> Micah will bring the sun with him
23:55:38 <Eric> anemone
23:55:48 <Eric> Big?
23:56:15 <Graham> looks like a short big
23:57:25 <JAke> i was timing it, didn't see the exact end, but it was less than 1m45s
23:57:58 <Graham> barely longer than Aurum
23:58:23 <ynpvisitor52> I did see the end but you over rode it I've deleted mine because we know in basin is better than webcam.
23:58:36 <Graham> good job its not Ledge week, would be miserable sitting there in the rain
00:40:22 <JAke> CAstle 1637
00:46:44 <Graham> OF
00:47:39 <Eric> So much steam everwhere...
00:56:18 <Eric> F&M area steam
00:56:41 <Eric> but probably not F&M :-P
01:06:00 <JAke> Dome has been really steamy today but I don't think it's erupting
01:06:41 <JAke> Dome was steamy before EVERYTHING was steamy
01:09:46 <Graham> you should go out and see if its in wild phase
01:13:33 <Maureen> Crazy rain in West Yellowstne right now, coming down in sheets
01:13:51 <Graham> nice, glad you are getting some
01:14:01 <Graham> we are due some again tonight too
01:14:50 <Maureen> we have gotten a lot of rain lately, I feel for Dave, his trip has been quite wet
01:15:31 <Graham> the sun will come out for him next week
01:15:38 <Maureen> he was headed to LGB this afternoon, could be quite rainy there as well
01:15:46 <Maureen> he will be back in Billings next week
01:15:55 <Maureen> Kevin comes tomorrow I guess
01:15:57 <Graham> yep
01:16:21 <Graham> i bet Kevin will want to do a rain dance since he usually doesnt get any
01:20:10 <Maureen> I bet he would rather it be nice out for his BH waits
01:21:04 <Maureen> time to leave work....if I dare go outside...
01:21:44 <Graham> just imagine its a superburst coming down on you
01:25:22 <Graham> how long will Kevin be in the park?
01:32:33 <JAke> Plate
01:32:53 <JAke> ie
01:34:58 <Graham> just a big fuzzball
01:38:42 <JAke> was it Plate or that Dragon something hot spring?

02:09:29 <ynpvisitor49> .
