18:54:30 <ynpvisitor94> Sawmill
19:31:40 <Graham> time for work
19:57:39 <Jake> work??!!?
19:58:38 <Jenna> guess he's done already lol
19:59:07 <Jenna> my parents ran in to a little snag last night, the east entrance was closed due to hazardous material, so not sure what happened
19:59:13 <Jenna> did you hear anything Jake?
20:02:24 <Graham> tried to quit, didnt work
20:02:51 <Graham> power went out and back and out and back and ...
20:32:31 <Graham> of
20:32:46 <Graham> dome
20:47:56 <ynpvisitor6> East Entrance closure was unexploded ordinance near the road leftover from avalanche control
20:48:42 <Graham> sweet
20:49:59 <Jake> I want to know who found it
20:50:13 <Kevin L iPad> I hate bombs that don't explode when you want them to.
21:00:27 <Jenna> ah, thanks Jake. They had called Xanterra who said it'd be 2 hours. Not sure how long it really was.
21:05:31 <Kevin L iPad> Nothing like hot steel and TNT to end your drive!
21:10:50 <Jenna> I just felt bad because I hadn't seen anything mentioned online all day to be able to warn them, their reservation was at Lake, so what do you do
21:13:12 <ynpvisitor63> you wait, right?
21:14:40 <Jenna> yup, no word from them today so I assume they made it in
21:29:58 <Jake> I think it opened around 8pm last night
21:34:10 <Jenna> that's about what it was supposed to be then
21:58:59 <Graham> OF

23:39:56 <Graham> of
23:42:48 <kcmule> aurum
23:43:51 <kcmule> nice of it to wait til after the bills score
23:44:29 <Graham> must not be regular season if they are scoring
23:45:04 <kcmule> nope, the nfl has to make sure to preinjure as many players as possible first
23:45:25 <Graham> :)
23:45:28 <ynpvisitor56> Almost 3 days since it was seen!
00:21:56 <Graham> Daisy
00:38:32 <ynpvisitor85> there's Lion

00:57:03 <Betty> Good afternoon
00:58:10 <Graham> hi betty. where are you? having fun?
01:00:11 <Betty> I'm coming near to Yellowstone, tonight in Great Falls
01:01:30 <Betty> Tomorrow is the day we're back "home" :-D
01:01:50 <Graham> nice, just in time for the next F&M :)
01:02:26 <Betty> Whooo, did they finally show up??
01:03:14 <Betty> When will you arrive?
01:04:10 <Craig> Hey so Big Cub on GT?
01:05:41 <Graham> of
01:05:43 <Craig> OF 1705
01:09:54 <Craig> ooh! Dome today!
01:10:01 <Jake> have to go back to Aug 3 to find a Grand interval longer than this right now
01:10:18 <Craig> Also I like how steamy Giantess is today. Grand where for art thou?
01:10:21 <Graham> still this month
01:10:35 <Graham> just big cub splashes on GT
01:10:50 <Craig> Yeah are those common or just for record keeping?
01:11:12 <Graham> fairly common, but sounds like more than normal now
01:11:38 <Craig> Awesome! :D last time Big CUb went off was in the 80's correct?
01:12:40 <ynpvisitor8> ha ha, Big Cub is Udo being bored
01:12:57 <ynpvisitor8> still no Grand?
01:13:05 <Graham> not sure when it last erupted, but not much
01:13:23 <ynpvisitor8> it splashes, like Udo posted...
01:13:35 <ynpvisitor8> all notes, no eruptions
01:14:30 <Graham> dome
01:14:46 <ynpvisitor8> is Betty in the park?
01:15:44 <Graham> tomorrow
01:15:52 <Betty> Not yet, but from tomorrow I am :-)
01:16:52 <Graham> did you go to Glacier?
01:17:02 <ynpvisitor8> getting close Betty!!
01:17:59 <Betty> We were in Glacier today, but lots of smoke
01:19:26 <ynpvisitor8> Yellowstone has been lucky the past 3 days
01:20:01 <ynpvisitor8> How come no more Turban times on GT?
01:20:23 <Graham> maybe Will is at F&M :)
01:22:00 <ynpvisitor8> not the Grand Beatrice wanted for her hello to Yellowstone
01:23:46 <Graham> looks like less smoke around now
01:24:04 <ynpvisitor8> last 3 days we have been lucky
01:24:11 <ynpvisitor8> there is Grand now
01:25:07 <ynpvisitor8> let's hope after all that wait it is a 2 burst
01:34:27 <ynpvisitor8> really?
01:36:19 <Graham> Dome instead?
01:37:36 <ynpvisitor8> sure...
01:40:56 <Kevin L> Pretty impressive hurricane in the Pacific:
01:41:40 <Jake> ouch, 9.5minutes and no 2nd burst
01:42:13 <Kevin L> After a 9 hour interval!
01:45:23 <ynpvisitor8> sad for peeps who were there
01:46:21 <ynpvisitor8> at least they had Great Fountain (some of them)
01:46:26 <Graham> nope, why be sad when you are at Grand?
01:47:10 <ynpvisitor8> I agree Graham, yet you should hear them talk about one bursts, it is similar to how folks talked about Fountain with no Morning...
01:47:27 <ynpvisitor8> the tone in their voices...
01:47:51 <ynpvisitor8> Great Fountain however had one of the most massive blue bubble waves I have ever seen today, AMAZING
01:48:13 <ynpvisitor8> even Jim S was there to see it, very fun
01:48:24 <Kevin L> Pictures! We want pictures!
01:48:26 <Graham> nice, glad you were there
01:48:41 <Graham> have to see if i can improve on my 1.0 burst count from July
01:48:50 <ynpvisitor8> only my memory for pictures, I think Henning got a nice one before the bubble burst into a wave
01:49:09 <ynpvisitor8> Lion
01:49:35 <ynpvisitor8> is the path to Geyser Hill open yet, from OF?
01:49:50 <ynpvisitor8> seems to be more people on the hill walk today
01:50:12 <Kevin L> I would like to see pictures of that. AND the plan sheets!
01:50:40 <ynpvisitor8> have Dave take some photos for you Kevin, or maybe Graham, he shows up soon
01:51:11 <Graham> :)
01:51:38 <ynpvisitor8> a bear has been seen in basin of late, a young griz
01:51:55 <Kevin L> I am wondering if it is a hard surface or a spongy type.
01:52:14 <ynpvisitor8> reviews will be coming in I would think...
01:52:17 <Kevin L> Graham would make good bear chow.
01:52:17 <Graham> nice, company for us at F&M
01:52:46 <ynpvisitor8> yes, F & M waking up will change the gazer dynamic over next weekend
02:00:54 <Graham> dome
02:01:09 <Graham> will you be down there #8?
02:02:40 <ynpvisitor8> no plans for that
02:03:17 <ynpvisitor8> it could have only visited, a once every 4 months visit...
02:03:37 <ynpvisitor8> sure glad people saw it
02:04:04 <ynpvisitor8> new fires in MT, not good
02:24:42 <Graham> dome
02:31:53 <Craig> OF bubbling
02:32:16 <Craig> i'm seeing intermittent puffs of steam on giantes.... I wonder if we can see boils on this cam

03:26:18 <ynpvisitor69> Anyone know if the walk is open to the hill?
03:26:40 <Kitt> I don't
03:27:22 <Kitt> coworker made it home yesterday . Sylvan Pass reopened, so they went that way and got home at 11:30 PM
03:29:10 <Kitt> are you trying to figure out if path is open?
03:29:59 <ynpvisitor69> Looking for Dome?
03:30:01 <Kitt> didn't look like any of those people had a radio
03:30:33 <Craig> Personally i'm looking at Giantess xD
03:31:21 <Kitt> good luck there
03:31:33 <Kitt> didn't see any good boils on it all summer
03:31:43 <Craig> haha a boy can dream :)
03:32:16 <ynpvisitor69> Let's see BH!
03:32:59 <Kitt> this is like watching F & M from Grand
03:33:15 <Kitt> can see it but not satisfying
03:33:38 <Kitt> Beehive
03:33:53 <Kitt> 1933 wc
03:34:21 <Craig> woah tall
03:37:20 <Kitt> if that path isn't open, then I hope it opens before next weekend
03:39:35 <Kitt> I wonder if Dimetri was up at Aurum
03:39:57 <Kitt> well, back to work
03:40:11 <Kitt> have a good evening everyone
03:40:15 <Kevin L iPad> It was a nice Aurum.
03:40:39 <ynpvisitor69> Walk opens Monday
03:40:51 <Kevin L iPad> BH wasn't bad either.
03:44:30 <kcmule> cobb and nelson both down, guessing youre not a fan of all the preseason games either KL
03:52:25 <Kevin L iPad> Nelson is out for the season to boot. :p
03:52:44 <kcmule> and bulaga too my pack friend just reminded me
04:01:00 <kcmule> nice sky
04:10:28 <Graham> of
04:13:22 <ynpvisitor58> So anyone read about the guest that filled out a suggestion card?
04:14:28 <ynpvisitor58> Asked that they train the bears to show up when people are aroud.
04:15:05 <ynpvisitor58> Somepark person said it was not possible to train bears.
04:15:44 <Kevin L> Bears normally take the bus.
04:16:31 <ynpvisitor58> I guess they forgot about the feeding years. When bears begged for food from catrs.
04:16:53 <ynpvisitor58> They were trained then.
04:17:30 <ynpvisitor58> They are trained now. if you hang with people you get killed.
04:20:46 <ynpvisitor58> conewalker
04:26:39 <Graham> dome
04:26:45 <Graham> goodnight
04:27:08 <kcmule> nte
04:54:31 <ynpvisitor29> Does the cam still go dark for an hour or two every night? Been a while since I have paid attention.
04:55:03 <Kevin L> I thin sometime around 0200 it does.
04:55:16 <ynpvisitor29> Thanks Kevin
05:00:54 <Kevin L> Hope the moon shows through tonight. It was beautiful last night.
05:01:45 <ynpvisitor29> Lightning has been very cool the last few minutes. Took me a while to figure out what was goin on.
05:02:24 <Kevin L> Wow, I just caught one. Looks like no moon tonight. :(
05:07:44 <ynpvisitor29> Black as the pit from pole to pole. A lot different than last night
06:07:15 <ynpvisitor99> Moon rises later each night. If clouds clear out there will be plenty of moonlight.
