16:16:30 <ynpvisitor61> miss
16:16:45 <ynpvisitor61> miss being on the hill already
16:17:11 <ynpvisitor61> must be chilly again, since I am seeing lots of coats
16:19:17 <Kevin L> Looks a tad dreary out there.
16:19:40 <Kitt> still adjusting to the temperature chance out here
16:19:53 <Kitt> it makes it almost to 100
16:21:06 <Kevin L> Pretty warm for you. We had one of the hottest Junes on record but July was one of the mildest. A tad warm right now, but not supposed to make 100 here on Sa!
16:21:23 <Kitt> considering a week ago my vehicle's door was frozen shut and we had ice on the boarwalks
16:22:34 <Kevin L> Really strange. You would think your temps would not be that much different.
16:22:56 <Kitt> I took a lovely Beehive shower two mornings ago.
16:24:02 <Kitt> Worland is in a banana belt (a basin), so we can get very cold and very hot.
16:25:38 <Kitt> In 1983 the average temperature here in the summer was about 110 and we got our usual cold snap that next winter with a week in the -30 to -40's
16:28:11 <Dave from B> Morning everyone
16:28:22 <Kitt> morning
16:28:23 <Dave from B> Kitt, welcome back to the "other side"!
16:28:40 <Kitt> Billings was a very busy town yesterday
16:28:49 <Dave from B> Hope you enjoyed your time in YNP
16:28:57 <Dave from B> Stocking your cupboards again?
16:28:58 <Kitt> I did
16:29:04 <Kitt> yes
16:29:08 <Dave from B> Yes, it is very busy around here
16:29:30 <Kitt> I was buying ingredients for some of Steve O
16:29:55 <Kitt> 's recipes
16:30:35 <Kitt> the lady behind me asked what I was making and wanted to know the time for the meal and my street address
16:31:02 <Kitt> unfortunately I didn't find purple potatoes
16:33:39 <Kitt> I guess I had better get busy with watering the yard and sorting thru Yellowstone stuff
16:34:06 <Kitt> will look for bee mid-day
16:34:24 <Kitt> cute bird lineup on cam
16:35:02 <Dave from B> Have a good day Kitt
16:35:03 <Kitt> bbl
16:35:37 <Dave from B> Any shopping questions regarding Billings, let me know. My wife usuallly knows the answer!

17:50:52 <Jenna> hi Dave
17:54:35 <kc (working)> mornin

17:59:46 <ynpvisitor53> Oblong or a Turban major.
17:59:55 <ynpvisitor32> tks
18:00:18 <ynpvisitor53> Grand should be soon.
18:00:34 <ynpvisitor53> Just was posted as Oblong.
18:07:22 <ynpvisitor53> Turban 1005
18:20:46 <Dave from B> That would be Daisy...not Castle:)
18:24:01 <Jenna> OF 1024
18:38:03 <ynpvisitor53> Lion
18:45:08 <ynpvisitor53> Grand. Slow start
18:46:52 <ynpvisitor53> Thanks to HK for feeding me Turban times so we could get a closeup start.
18:47:42 <Kevin L> Not sure how I turned back into a number.
18:48:15 <Dave from B> magic
18:48:34 <Kevin L> I think you did it.
18:50:08 <Kevin L> At least the computer started today. Had a fight with it yesterday afternoon.
19:06:16 <ynpvisitor15> .
19:07:49 <Dave from B> Morning Eric.....can't you program your number to change at midnight?:)
19:13:01 <Kevin L> Ugh! MeTV is changing Perry Mason to Matlock the end of this month. :p Back to DVDs.
19:16:17 <Eric(31)> Morning Dave, My number changes around 9am every morning :-) It's the time I hope to arrive in the park!
19:16:51 <Dave from B> Good comeback, Eric!:)
19:18:30 <Eric(31)> And like geysers...that time can have quite a bit of variance :-D
19:22:30 <Kevin L> Check your raidator hoses and look out for rocks....
19:23:53 <Dave from B> And, watch out for trees
19:24:23 <Kevin L> Only if the wife is driving.....
19:24:44 <Dave from B> And, if you take your bike, make sure you know how to stay on it......don't use me as an example
19:25:44 <Kevin L> I try not to use anything with less than 4 wheels.
19:26:02 <ynpvisitor87> Dave, you fell off your bike?
19:26:33 <ynpvisitor87> Kevin, I bet we could set you up with three wheels...
19:26:57 <Kevin L> That would still be a bit iffy.
19:27:05 <Dave from B> 87, I fell off in 2013
19:27:25 <ynpvisitor87> asleep at the wheel?
19:27:34 <Dave from B> narrowly avoiding the benches at the first daisy turnoff. I actually drove right between the two before going flying
19:27:57 <ynpvisitor87> wow
19:28:01 <Dave from B> brb...airport run...you can pick on me in 45 minutes or while I'm gone

19:55:52 <ynpvisitor76> Yeah Beehive
19:55:54 <Kevin L> Surprise!!
19:56:01 <Eric(31)> no doubt
19:56:16 <Eric(31)> so today we get the 16 hour interval...that I predicted yesterday :-P
19:56:25 <Eric(31)> I am just a day behind....
19:56:35 <Eric(31)> Hey Betty
19:56:37 <Betty> whoo just in time
19:56:45 <Eric(31)> and Kitt
19:56:57 <Kevin L> I was expecting it in about 4 -5 hours.
19:57:26 <kc (working)> Dave's airport run should have given us a clue
19:57:42 <Kevin L> He won't be happy.
19:58:09 <Eric(31)> You are right kc.
19:58:31 <Kevin L> He should visit the dentist while he is at it.
19:58:44 <Eric(31)> Maybe giantess will go then kevin
20:00:28 <Betty> hi Kitt,, how was the trip?
20:01:13 <Kitt> Fun, exhausting, and now I am unpacking, sorting, and doing laundry
20:01:50 <Betty> yep, lot of things to do after such a trip :-)
20:03:27 <Kitt> I saw adults in animal costumes soaking their feet in Grand's run off, a Macaw in a huge birdcage backpack (it was a service animal), and people getting way too close to the bison
20:04:00 <Kitt> this year the bison at the old faithful area acted like they were in rut in June
20:05:05 <Kitt> I got to see to Ledge eruptions from the start plus one part way in. I would have seen this last one but opted for another Grand and breakfast
20:05:07 <Kevin L> I saw the Geyser Grill had bison brats.
20:05:15 <ynpvisitor3> why are we so far away from BH?
20:05:30 <Kitt> because Old Faithful just erupted
20:05:43 <ynpvisitor3> done and done
20:05:52 <Kitt> and Beehive has erupted
20:06:02 <ynpvisitor3> oh, got it, thanks
20:06:16 <Betty> short indy today
20:08:08 <Kitt> well back to chores
20:08:15 <Kitt> thanks for indy text
20:08:17 <Kitt> bye
20:08:26 <Betty> bye Kitt
20:08:30 <Kevin L> Enjoy.
20:18:54 <Dave from B> Thanks a lot BH:P
20:19:20 <Betty> ouch
20:19:42 <Dave from B> Work always gets in the way
20:19:58 <Kevin L> We do appreciate you Dave.
20:22:58 <Dave from B> Aren't you going to miss bus duty, Kevin?:)
20:25:12 <Kevin L> Not at all!
20:28:15 <ynpvisitor51> Hi
20:28:29 <Betty> hi 51
20:29:04 <Betty> hmm?
20:29:21 <Betty> Am I that scary??
20:30:34 <Kevin L> Maybe we are just boring.
20:30:58 <Betty> yes, maybe
20:36:01 <Dave from B> Was just thinking on way back from airport that we haven't had any trolls for a long time.
20:39:49 <Betty> it is better not to have them
20:40:23 <Troll> Boo
20:40:38 <Betty> haha Eric
20:40:38 <Dave from B> haha
20:40:52 <Troll> ohh, and for betty: Bah
20:40:56 <Dave from B> Have to say hii first
20:41:05 <Betty> thanks
20:41:21 <Eric(32)> I got a PM troll yesterday
20:41:27 <Eric(32)> it was weird
20:41:29 <Betty> boo is buh in german
20:41:42 <Eric(32)> Thanks Betty :-D
20:42:45 <Eric(32)> So when a kid gets a small cut or hurt, do you call it a buh buh?
20:43:18 <Dave from B> ..
20:43:27 <Kevin L> Now you chased Dave away Betty.
20:43:38 <Dave from B> :D
20:43:57 <Betty> bah, boo and puh! he´s back!
20:44:48 <Eric(32)> http://en.bab.la/dictionary/german-english/buh
20:44:53 <Dave from B> It's gonna take a lot more than that!
20:46:48 <Eric(32)> are chairs allowed on the BW?
20:49:58 <Eric(32)> improbable?
20:50:09 <Eric(32)> zooom please if anyone is watching
20:50:57 <Eric(32)> guess not :-(
20:51:39 <Eric(32)> everyone left the hill for lunch
20:52:14 <Dave from B> I believe chairs are allowed if they don't completely block the route...anyone else know for sure?
21:00:03 <Eric(32)> Thanks Dave
21:00:06 <Eric(32)> Daisy
21:01:04 <Eric(32)> big group out there at daisy

22:36:32 <Kevin L> Working like normal for me. Very choppy.
22:36:53 <Betty> not moving since 10 min
22:37:23 <Kevin L> Mine is moving. Just choppy.
22:38:18 <Betty> after refreshing black screen for 1 minute, then a frozen pic
22:38:27 <Eric(32)> working great here
22:38:33 <Eric(32)> no choppy or problems
22:38:37 <Betty> :-(
22:38:48 <Eric(32)> but I had that same issue last week Betty
22:39:31 <Betty> hey! it moved!

23:04:04 <ynpvisitor15> .
23:12:31 <ynpvisitor90> hi
23:40:49 <ynpvisitor57> Daisy
23:40:49 <Kevin L> Daisy
00:18:14 <kc (working)> castle 1601 ie gt
00:22:47 <Eric(32)> slow OF
00:23:30 <Craig> Yo
00:23:58 <Eric(32)> Yo Yo
00:31:10 <Eric(32)> I am getting that video freeze now that betty was speaking of
00:31:29 <kc (working)> yep. do not adjust your set
00:31:47 <Eric(32)> ok :-P
00:32:20 <Eric(32)> tell the people in the photo shop to stop downloading torrents :-D
00:36:20 <Kevin L> I think Eric broke it
00:44:02 <Kevin L> Looks like some crappy weather moving in.
00:47:41 <Eric(32)> That's all your fault then :-P
00:47:59 <Eric(32)> BTW, I guess I fixed the camera...seems to be smooth again
00:52:25 <Kevin L> Those cyber wrenches are nice.
01:00:21 <BobInGa> Hellow folks, what's up next on the big screen?
01:00:48 <Kevin L> Rain.
01:01:14 <BobInGa> And there are people in shorts, Oh Dear
01:01:40 <Kevin L> Grand is due. So far no Turban times though.
01:13:33 <Kevin L> Get that wrench out again Eric.
01:13:47 <Eric(32)> ugg
01:13:57 <Eric(32)> now it's really broken
01:14:18 <Kevin L> For sure. The control video is also frozen.
01:14:19 <Eric(32)> both mobile and desktop streams are down
01:14:31 <Eric(32)> I would say connection to camera is busted
01:15:26 <Eric(32)> Yep, network down to camera confirmed
01:15:47 <Kevin L> I suspect the power it out
01:16:18 <BobInGa> Well Poo! I'll just have to get to the park and watch in person. If the camera is fixed, I will wave.
01:17:54 <Kevin L> Good time to feed chickens.
01:18:29 <Eric(32)> it's back
01:24:03 <ynpvisitor43> Static works
01:24:30 <ynpvisitor86> you have streaming Eric? Mine is still down
01:24:43 <Kevin L> Mine is down too.
01:24:53 <BobInGa> Mine too, even after refresh
01:24:55 <ynpvisitor86> I can get static though
01:25:04 <ynpvisitor86> so must not be power outage
01:25:13 <ynpvisitor86> where is jake when we need him?
01:25:54 <BobInGa> I guess I'll work on my travel plans, Have a good evening everyone.
01:26:10 <Eric(32)> it was up
01:26:13 <Eric(32)> down again
01:26:28 <Eric(32)> night bob
01:27:33 <Kevin L> Static is showing a picture but it is old.
01:28:12 <Eric(32)> I am guessing power is off and on
01:29:23 <kc (working)> im still seeing a static update of 1722
01:32:06 <Eric(32)> Yep...I think it came back up from 17:18 to 17:22 then went down again
01:33:01 <Kevin L> Radar shows nasty storms moving in.
01:53:52 <Kevin L> It's back.
01:53:54 <Kevin L> .
01:53:56 <Kevin L> .
01:53:57 <Kevin L> .
01:54:07 <Kevin L> OF
01:55:06 <Kevin L> Does look a bit nasty.
01:59:32 <Kevin L> No Grand posted in GT yet.
02:08:45 <Eric(32)> GT says we are in an aurum window
02:09:36 <Kevin L> Between now and noon tomorrow.
02:11:07 <Kevin L> Looks like blue sky coming through.
02:18:41 <Kevin L> Looks like we may have a Turban.
02:31:14 <kcmule> uncertain
02:31:15 <kcmule> .
02:31:17 <kcmule> .
02:31:24 <kcmule> 1830 start
02:42:50 <Eric(32)> sounds improbable
02:44:00 <Eric(32)> But I am old and faithful, so I'm sure it will be grand
02:46:25 <Kevin L> Been hitting those micro breweries for lunch Eric?
02:58:46 <Kevin L> Yea Grand!
02:59:23 <Kevin L> great start!
03:02:35 <Eric(32)> Nice
03:26:53 <kcmule> OF 19:26
03:35:26 <kcmule> sawmill ie
03:38:59 <kcmule> pretty much lion or bust now
03:47:12 <Eric(32)> Can anyone tell me what geyser this steam is coming from? https://www.dropbox.com/s/7gi6klczh4d9yxn/geyserhillgeysers.jpg
03:47:44 <Eric(32)> I have seen water there a few times...but am not sure what the feature is
03:49:22 <kcmule> i think it's a spring; Graham addressed it once a long time ago but i dont remember
03:49:50 <kcmule> when NG is active it gets a lot of attention, same sight line
03:51:05 <Eric(32)> ohh, ok so NG is in that line then
03:51:08 <kcmule> aurum
03:51:10 <kcmule> .
03:51:11 <kcmule> .
03:51:12 <kcmule> .
03:51:16 <Eric(32)> Steam
03:51:30 <Eric(32)> There is water back there :-D
03:51:38 <kcmule> 2 aurums in a day wow
03:51:39 <Eric(32)> Nice catch
03:51:54 <Eric(32)> With all the steam...didn't even notice it
03:51:57 <kcmule> ty
03:52:48 <Eric(32)> So if I see water at that spot I circled, it is most likely north goggles
03:52:59 <Kevin L> Boy did I walk in at the right time!
03:53:09 <Eric(32)> you caught aurum?
03:53:22 <kcmule> you tricked aurum
03:58:22 <Kevin L> I have to sneak up on it.
03:58:23 <Eric(32)> Yep, that is totally north goggles I have seen
03:58:43 <kcmule> http://coloradobills.com/yellowstone/NG1933.09152011.flv it zooms about 2mins in
03:58:45 <Eric(32)> going to google street view, I can even see the big white sign to it's right :-)
04:00:29 <Eric(32)> ohhh, that is NOT what I saw :-D
04:00:36 <Eric(32)> Great capture and mucho thank you
04:01:00 <Eric(32)> This is closer to the sign and much smaller eruption
04:01:14 <Eric(32)> like you said earlier...probably a pool and large boil
04:03:34 <kcmule> yw. the spring is on this side of the bw. if i had to guess it would be unng-ghg-10 from tsb 3
04:04:23 <Eric(32)> I just noticed that Lion is i.e. in google street view :-D
04:04:34 <Eric(32)> pretty cool
04:05:17 <kcmule> nice
04:06:32 <Eric(32)> ok "kitten geyser" thanks for the reference
04:07:00 <Eric(32)> interesting reference to it being a precursor to lion ini
04:08:20 <kcmule> kitten, not sure if that's what Graham said or not. I better stop typing for him. it's just a guess on my part tho
04:11:15 <Eric(32)> better guess than I had...I will sit and ponder it on the BW in less than a month :-D
04:13:09 <kcmule> hope u do better than me, i get lost out there w/o these angles. i forget just how hilly it is til i get out there again
04:13:58 <Eric(32)> yes...this mega zoom sure helps get to things quickly
04:18:09 <ynpvisitor(32)> I was sacrifice for BH earlier...Can I get my payment in a geyser eruption please?
04:19:14 <kcmule> will oblong suffice?
04:19:33 <ynpvisitor(32)> Thanks, kc
04:19:50 <kcmule> yw. looks pretty nice in the light :)
04:20:59 <ynpvisitor(32)> Always a great time of day to be in the basin
04:23:46 <ynpvisitor(32)> Was there a contest on GT today to see how many different geysers could be entered?
04:24:07 <Kevin L> Must be Dave fromthe airport.
04:24:24 <ynpvisitor(32)> One and only
04:24:49 <Eric(32)> Ryan wins :-D
04:25:08 <ynpvisitor(32)> haha
04:25:21 <ynpvisitor(32)> How long is Ryan in the park?
04:26:30 <Eric(32)> don't know
04:26:40 <Eric(32)> but where in the world is geyser A-0
04:27:08 <ynpvisitor(32)> Near Firehole Lake?
04:28:07 <Eric(32)> yep
04:28:10 <Eric(32)> found it in TSB
04:28:22 <ynpvisitor8> It is near Great Fountain
04:28:27 <Eric(32)> it's in the white creek group
04:28:29 <ynpvisitor69> not exactly
04:28:32 <ynpvisitor(32)> Near Boitroydal(sp)
04:28:37 <ynpvisitor69> there ya go
04:28:41 <ynpvisitor(32)> Thanks 8
04:28:44 <ynpvisitor(32)> and 69
04:29:29 <ynpvisitor8> Silliest report of day was that Lemon Spring was full...
04:30:06 <ynpvisitor8> Not notable yet there it is.
04:30:24 <ynpvisitor8> To each their own though
04:30:25 <Eric(32)> hmmm, was looking at TSB...aren't all of those geysers east of the road in the white creek group?
04:30:32 <Eric(32)> including boitroydal
04:30:56 <ynpvisitor69> but sometimes Lemon is empty, so it may be good information
04:31:22 <ynpvisitor(32)> off to the TV. See everyone tomorrow!
04:31:54 <kcmule> adios
04:31:59 <Eric(32)> cya
05:01:32 <kcmule> OF 21:01
05:07:09 <kcmule> lion 21:06 ini
05:17:29 <kcmule> daisy ie, with nice clouds
05:19:56 <kcmule> looks like a bird to me
07:59:18 <ynpvisitor95> Black as the ace of spades except for the night bow.
