08:01:28 <ynpvisitor4> hi
10:31:38 <ynpvisitor73> hi
12:44:46 <Kevin L> Morning Dave.
12:58:07 <Kevin L> OF
13:00:29 <Kevin L> You all have a good day. See you tomorrow.
13:01:12 <joe thermop> Bye Kevin
13:07:06 <Dave from B> ..
13:07:24 <Dave from B> Bye, Kevin...IE acting weird this morning
13:21:24 <vw> Good morning!
13:21:38 <vw> Graham heading out into the basin now.
13:27:30 <Dave from B> Morning vw
13:27:45 <Dave from B> Where is he going?
13:28:41 <vw> Not sure Dave. He just said he would wave at the cam.
13:29:55 <vw> I have been sending him east coast storm updates on the hope he can extend his stay in YNP. It looks like things will clear up by the time he will be headed east again. :(
13:30:29 <vw> We aren't chatting much about geysers!
13:32:09 <vw> Looks like yesterday's herd of bison did a good job of leaving some fertilizer scattered around. Very impressive.
13:33:23 <Dave from B> I swear if bison stayed in the same place for a month, the ground would be an extra foot above sea level.
13:33:36 <Dave from B> They do make a mess
13:34:33 <vw> And so aromatic.
13:43:08 <Dave from B> For what its worth...BH bubblers are going
13:44:23 <vw> Not much of an indicator, but cute nonetheless.
13:48:53 <ynpvisitor65> They were going at this time yesterday too!
13:58:00 <Dave from B> Seems bubblers are like water fountain at Lion. At least a sign that BH didn't go last night?
13:59:02 <Dave from B> Unfortunately, I think we are going to get a BH soon...wish it would wait for warmer temps. I thing BH 0845-1015
13:59:11 <Dave from B> think*
13:59:51 <Dave from B> Per Graham on GT...Aurum is post eruptive
14:19:15 <Dave from B> Morning Jenna
14:19:47 <Jenna> morning Dave
14:20:49 <Dave from B> Castle 800iemaj per Graham
14:21:07 <Dave from B> That will fog the basin for hours:(
14:23:09 <Dave from B> I would have guessed it was below zero at OF with all the fog. Temp is 5F at 0715
14:23:16 <Dave from B> 86%H
14:29:11 <Dave from B> Morning Jimbo...you a math major?:)
14:29:25 <Jimbo 5^2> No, just having fun
14:29:43 <Dave from B> I like your style!
14:29:47 <Jimbo 5^2> OF ie
14:29:52 <Jimbo 5^2> Chem major
14:30:14 <Dave from B> OF 8.4833ie
14:30:43 <Jimbo 5^2> If you want to be precise.
14:53:24 <Dave from B> ..
14:55:01 <Jenna> going to be 40 this weekend Dave, so my piddly little snow will disappear fast
14:56:37 <Dave from B> Finally going to be nice on a weekend day and no football so time to take xmas lights down tomorrow!
15:04:25 <Jenna> sounds like a good plan.
16:04:33 <ynpvisitor1> really froggy there
16:09:12 <Eric> Cold and Foggy...12 degrees
16:10:52 <joe thermop> Time to go soak in the hot springs! see you later
16:12:08 <Eric> Looks like the fog is clearing...
16:12:30 <Dave from B> Morning Eric
16:12:37 <Eric> Morning Dave
16:12:42 <Dave from B> Clearing until the next biggie erupts
16:37:19 <Jenna> Grand
16:39:03 <Dave from B> Thanks Jenna
16:39:16 <Jenna> 1035 per GT
16:44:42 <ynpvisitor10> how can that person not be moving faster toward Grand?
16:45:57 <ynpvisitor10> just the sound would draw me
16:46:38 <Dave from B> Probably doesn't know what he/she is missing.
16:47:00 <ynpvisitor10> they might have been waiting on those other folks too
16:47:37 <ynpvisitor10> I think Graham has only had one two burst
16:49:17 <ynpvisitor10> at least this was a Turban start, so that is a bit different for him
16:49:53 <ynpvisitor10> he will leave without seeing Sawmill unless something changes up
16:51:35 <Eric> Is sawmill not ie right now?
16:52:00 <Eric> Mp[e
16:52:02 <Eric> Nope
16:52:43 <ynpvisitor10> a Churn series has been happening
16:53:30 <Eric> Does that usually affect Sawmill behavior?
16:53:33 <ynpvisitor10> and though he has seen evidence of Penta erupting, he has not gotten to see an eruption
16:54:03 <ynpvisitor10> Dave? I am not up on how the Sawmill complex works
16:56:25 <ynpvisitor1> Daisy maybe
16:57:11 <ynpvisitor10> looks like
16:57:18 <Eric> I assume the loggers that were on that group have been removed?
16:57:47 <ynpvisitor10> yes, no word from Will about any findings, though I think he mentioned once they were not in place long enough to really find anything out
16:58:00 <Eric> bummer
17:06:25 <Dave from B> I believe Sawmill is inactive when in Churn Penta mode, but I'm not really the right person to ask.
17:24:07 <Dave from B> Morning canyonkid
17:25:35 <Dave from B> Morning hp
17:26:10 <hp> Good morning, Dave from B
17:35:20 <Eric> lot of BH steam
17:35:42 <Eric> We got indy?
17:35:50 <ynpvisitor1> seems like maybe so
17:35:55 <ynpvisitor1> consistent steam
17:36:11 <ynpvisitor1> ding
17:36:12 <Eric> Can't see the cone
17:36:12 <ynpvisitor1> ding
17:36:17 <ynpvisitor1> ding
17:36:23 <Eric> You sure?
17:36:29 <ynpvisitor1> no
17:36:32 <ynpvisitor1> unding
17:36:34 <Eric> haha
17:36:40 <Eric> OF
17:36:42 <Eric> I am sure of that
17:36:45 <ynpvisitor1> looks highly suspicious though
17:37:08 <Eric> Yes...that is a lot of steam
17:37:14 <canyonkid> wow a bigball oh steam
17:37:17 <Eric> no ground report yet
17:37:46 <Eric> I gotta assume we have BHI
17:38:55 <Dave from B> Yes, we do
17:39:22 <Eric> I have been watching pretty closely...I never saw water
17:39:42 <ynpvisitor1> I didn't see water on the quick zoom in
17:39:57 <ynpvisitor1> but there was lots of steam in the area
17:40:12 <Dave from B> cam op asked me to send text. I'll trust her.:)
17:40:36 <Eric> Better a false text than a missed BH :-D
17:40:41 <Dave from B> Not a good time for BH...still too foggy
17:40:53 <Eric> That is all just OF runoff
17:41:02 <Eric> was clear a couple minutes ago
17:41:35 <ynpvisitor7> BHI is behind that
17:42:26 <Eric> Hopefully :-P
17:43:40 <ynpvisitor1> clearing, cleaaarrrrrrinnnnnggg........
17:44:16 <ynpvisitor16> bodies
17:45:04 <ynpvisitor1> still heavy steam there so about 10 minutes in
17:45:04 <Eric> I don't think we will really know until BH goes.
17:46:01 <ynpvisitor1> if it's not BHI it must be super-bubblers or something strange
17:46:26 <ynpvisitor1> could be first sign of impending supervolcano implosion
17:46:38 <Eric> I was using scissor springs as a baseline...look how much steam is coming off of it.
17:48:12 <Eric> Even if BH goes...I wonder if we will see any of it.
17:48:41 <Kitt> I am here Bee
17:48:46 <Eric> BH
17:48:48 <Kitt> Yeehaw
17:48:51 <Eric> 1148
17:48:56 <Eric> It knew Kitt
17:49:52 <ynpvisitor1> must be frigid there today
17:50:06 <Eric> 20 degrees
17:50:26 <ynpvisitor7> is the temp coming today?
17:50:30 <ynpvisitor1> wow, really? almost tropical
17:50:32 <ynpvisitor7> on chat?
17:50:38 <Kitt> no frigid is minus something
17:50:39 <Biddle> yeah!
17:50:57 <Kitt> oooo, look, it is Bee
17:51:08 <Eric> I think so...I will move the android page over to the main one after BH
17:51:15 <Dave from B> Glad you made it Ki9tt
17:51:21 <ynpvisitor7> thanks Eric
17:51:22 <Kitt> looks like Depression also?
17:51:26 <Kitt> me too
17:51:33 <Biddle> Thanks for the text
17:51:39 <Biddle> and yes on depression
17:51:40 <Kitt> I was at work making my lunch
17:51:42 <Biddle> maybe
17:51:52 <Kitt> decided to bring lunch home
17:52:02 <Eric> Bee likes your lunch times Kitt :-)
17:52:16 <Dave from B> Thanks to vw for catching indy
17:52:24 <Kitt> that is why I didn't see bee for almost 3 weeks?
17:52:59 <Eric> hmm, seemed like it coincided more than that...bummer
17:53:06 <Kitt> yes, thank you vw
17:54:05 <Biddle> Bye, thanks for letting us all know :)
17:54:36 <Kitt> when does Graham head back home?
17:54:47 <ynpvisitor7> Grand had a 7 hour interval Dave
17:54:53 <ynpvisitor7> Graham leaves tomorrow
17:54:57 <ynpvisitor7> home Sunday
17:55:00 <ynpvisitor7> if he can get there
17:55:19 <Kitt> Hopefully he gets home with the bad weather back east
17:55:35 <ynpvisitor7> yeah, he might have trouble with the last leg of his trip
17:55:59 <ynpvisitor7> DC will have more snow than the basin if the predictions are correct
17:56:26 <Kitt> well that was lovely, now for lunch
17:56:29 <Kitt> bye all
17:57:15 <Dave from B> 7, I saw that
17:57:43 <Dave from B> Still being pretty dependable
17:58:14 <Dave from B> Should be getting to be Aurum time but we don't stand much of a chance to see it.
17:59:03 <Dave from B> Maybe he will get stuck in Denver and have to go to the football game on Sunday:)
18:15:56 <ynpvisitor7> Dave, I bet that is a really easy ticket to find!!
18:15:59 <ynpvisitor7> NOT
18:16:11 <ynpvisitor7> and unfortunately he will be stuck in Houston, such fun
18:19:48 <Dave from B> It will be warmer in Houston...and everything is availble for a price. probably about 500-1000 a ticket would be my guess
18:30:39 <Dave from B> Have a feeling Grahamn is at Aurum or having lunch or both
18:38:09 <Dave from B> Lion ie
18:39:04 <ynpvisitor7> I would bet game tickets are more than that Dave
18:39:32 <Dave from B> Those are for seats that could give you altitude sickness!:)
18:39:37 <ynpvisitor7> Not sure Graham would even care to be at that game, those aren't exactly his teams
18:39:54 <Dave from B> mine,either..not even sure who to root for
18:40:46 <Eric> ok...default now has temp and wind for this page
18:40:57 <Eric> Refresh and you should see it
18:40:59 <ynpvisitor7> ooh, I am going to refresh
18:41:23 <ynpvisitor7> looks great Eric, thanks
18:41:29 <Eric> awesome
18:41:33 <ynpvisitor7> that is so helpful
18:41:38 <Dave from B> CI might be using an old page..Can you send new link, Eric?
18:42:05 <Eric> I just updated the current page to use the latest...
18:42:12 <Eric> there is no "new" link :-)
18:42:14 <ynpvisitor7> http://yellowstone.pjt.me/camchat/#Marmot
18:43:18 <Dave from B> That is on Marmot page only?
18:43:32 <Eric> no, it works for any of the views
18:43:35 <ynpvisitor7> Graham has a warm day, and not so windy
18:43:45 <ynpvisitor7> I think it is on all pages, i just use Marmot
18:44:07 <Dave from B> Mine only shows on Elk, Marmot and Wolf
18:44:47 <Dave from B> ok...if I scroll over by temp it shows up on the other 3...must be a space issue. Thanks! Eric:)
18:45:27 <Eric> Ya, I think some of those other layouts, it runs out of room :-(
18:46:39 <ynpvisitor7> I was always going back and forth to the temp page, now it is right there. LOVE IT
18:47:47 <Dave from B> I use bear squished into a corner for chat only and use NPS page for streaming to fit on my 2nd monitor with 3 other webpages and 2 company chat as well.
18:47:55 <ynpvisitor1> is it auto-updating every X minutes?
18:48:26 <ynpvisitor7> oh right, what about that?
18:48:39 <ynpvisitor7> You are a busy guy Dave
18:49:20 <Eric> Yep, it auto updates every 900000 millseconds :-D
18:49:55 <Eric> which is every 15 minutes
18:50:08 <Dave from B> ERic, could you put the Geyser Grill menu on there as well?:D
18:50:19 <ynpvisitor7> ick
18:50:42 <ynpvisitor1> maybe with a "best by" date
18:51:27 <ynpvisitor1> thanks for the update, now I'm staring at it to watch it change
18:53:25 <Eric> I don't like that it does wonky things on the Bear layout :-(
18:53:54 <Eric> Just not enough room for it and all of the other stuff up there
18:54:33 <Eric> Guess I could hide it on Bear, Bison and Moose
18:55:21 <ynpvisitor7> mine has not changed, yet it will only update when the site it is pulled from updates, right?
18:56:08 <Eric> Yes, it updates every 15 minutes and it's possible the Temp and Wind are still the same
18:56:45 <Eric> You don't need to do anything to get updates...it will just change automagically
18:58:25 <Dave from B> 7, just step out your door and check the temperature!:)
18:59:10 <ynpvisitor7> t shirt weather today
19:18:54 <ynpvisitor7> NICE START
19:19:06 <ynpvisitor7> OF
19:19:27 <ynpvisitor7> hint of rainbow
19:19:35 <ynpvisitor7> that was almost like a BH start
19:19:53 <ynpvisitor7> Riverside is ie
19:45:12 <kc (working)> Graham is at Black Sand apparently
19:47:30 <Dave from B> Daisy 1347ie
20:16:17 <ynpvisitor71> Here for the coyote.
20:21:55 <ynpvisitor71> I guess we are out of cayotes today.
20:49:11 <ynpvisitor52> OF 1450
21:27:31 <ynpvisitor7> my temp changed! 37 in the basin, wow
21:31:13 <ynpvisitor1> breakout the Hawaiian shirts!
21:32:36 <Dave from B> haha 1
21:35:29 <ynpvisitor7> that is the warmest it has been in a while
21:35:43 <ynpvisitor7> I wonder if Graham will make it back to upper basin for Grand
21:37:50 <ynpvisitor15> wind has picked up as well
21:39:21 <ynpvisitor7> so it's melting...
21:39:47 <ynpvisitor7> churn? Sawmill?
21:39:58 <ynpvisitor7> must be churn
21:40:08 <ynpvisitor15> looks like sawmill to me
21:40:21 <ynpvisitor7> pretty sure it was left of sawmill
21:40:31 <ynpvisitor7> sawmill has not erupted the entire time Graham has been there
21:40:52 <ynpvisitor15> I think you are right 7
21:41:14 <ynpvisitor7> wish cam op was on chat, we could get close up
21:41:37 <ynpvisitor15> I assume they are listening...they did zoom toward churn/sawmill
21:41:53 <ynpvisitor7> I think they were just panning aobut
21:41:57 <ynpvisitor7> about
21:42:25 <ynpvisitor7> seems like a long eruption now for Churn
21:42:36 <ynpvisitor7> maybe Sawmill has risen!!
21:43:25 <ynpvisitor7> is Dave around?
21:43:45 <ynpvisitor7> I think it is Sawmill 15, too long of an eruption now
21:43:58 <ynpvisitor15> I am going to ask Paul for analytics access on this page...I am curious about the average users monitor width in pixels
21:44:40 <ynpvisitor7> maybe ask Eric, he seems to be doing the most with the page these days
21:44:51 <Eric> :-D
21:45:02 <ynpvisitor7> Paul is moving back to the US this week I think
21:45:05 <Eric> sorry, forgot to change my name
21:45:12 <ynpvisitor7> ha ha, or ask Paul...
21:45:13 <Eric> Wowza
21:45:36 <Eric> He bumps around a lot
21:45:40 <ynpvisitor7> that has to be Sawmill Eric
21:45:52 <Eric> Ya, and it's bigger now too
21:46:11 <ynpvisitor7> wish cam op was interested in checking it out
21:47:35 <Dave from B> That is Sawmill
21:47:39 <ynpvisitor7> oh good
21:48:01 <ynpvisitor7> hope Graham gets to see it, I texted him about it
21:48:34 <Dave from B> I thought only Greg Gushwa liked Sawmill!:D
21:49:18 <ynpvisitor7> some of his best winter photos are of Sawmill streamers
21:55:53 <Eric> Some sunshine
21:56:37 <ynpvisitor1> 35° temperature PLUMMETING!
21:56:58 <Dave from B> Time for me to head to the market. Have a great evening everyone!
22:10:14 <kc (working)> market and plummeting, definitely 2 words to describe the year so far
22:10:50 <kc (working)> @Eric, yes the link worked perfectly tyvvm
22:20:14 <Eric> Great kc...if you need it adjust up or down it will only take me a couple seconds...so just let me know.
22:21:56 <Eric> aurum?
22:22:25 <Eric> ugg, too much blow over from Giantess to tell now
22:23:02 <Eric> Guess it was just a big Giantess boil
22:24:40 <Eric> OF 1624
22:28:15 <kc (working)> it slotted in there like a tetris piece, thanks!
22:28:49 <kc (working)> and that annoying Feedback tab is gone too, bonus
22:31:29 <ynpvisitor1> Grand
22:31:43 <ynpvisitor1> Geyser
22:32:25 <ynpvisitor1> under 6 hours
22:45:30 <ynpvisitor75> missed it
22:46:07 <Eric> Ya, the feedback tab needs to be removed since it doesn't even work :-(
22:52:12 <kc (working)> it didnt work when it did work, no one payed any attention to it
23:02:16 <ynpvisitor75> there was a feedback tab?
23:05:08 <Biddle> is that oblong?
23:05:17 <Biddle> looks bigger though...
23:06:20 <Biddle> Ooh wind speed!
23:06:26 <ynpvisitor30> Just above Center-Left side of page, my Feedback tab is still there...
23:08:29 <Biddle> refresh. it should go away
23:09:22 <Eric> feedback tab GONE....
23:13:51 <Biddle> BH is very steamy for how long ago the eruption was
23:22:25 <ynpvisitor75> too bad it is so cloudy
23:22:49 <ynpvisitor75> Time for Daisy?
23:27:04 <Eric> I increased the video size slightly...to better align with the chat and header width.
23:27:59 <Eric> Only drawback is if your screen is short...it does push the chat down slightly.
23:47:04 <kc (working)> thought that might have been aurum, glad Graham got it
23:50:04 <ynpvisitor75> oh missed it
23:50:16 <ynpvisitor75> nice end to his day
00:45:17 <ynpvisitor41> Oh drat. I cannot see the cam on chat on my phone anymore. The click for mobile button is gone and I can only access the still cam.
00:45:44 <Biddle> try switching to marmot layout
00:47:00 <ynpvisitor41> Thanks Biddle
00:47:43 <ynpvisitor41> I was used to it defaulting to it, I hope it will again
01:30:05 <kcmule> OF
01:43:09 <kcmule> daisy
02:03:25 <ynpvisitor50> Either the miniature Bison are back, or the real big ones left piles.
02:05:07 <ynpvisitor50> UFO over riverside area
02:06:38 <ynpvisitor50> Someone screen capture it and send it to the Billings Gazette.
02:08:53 <ynpvisitor50> Dome? Steam from something off to the right
02:09:20 <Biddle> haha ufo. only heard that joke a million times
02:10:26 <ynpvisitor50> It is gone now. Not sure if it was a star or what. Bright light,
02:11:26 <Biddle> probably a dust particle meteor. Hundreds burn up in the atmosphere every minute.
02:11:58 <ynpvisitor50> It was not moving, other then it may have set.
02:14:28 <ynpvisitor50> That is quite a bit of steam for oblong.
02:16:15 <Biddle> not oblong. grotto or artemisia or something in that ara
02:16:26 <Biddle> oblong is right next to grand
02:17:55 <ynpvisitor50> You are correct, Grotto, normal amount of steam then.
02:18:32 <ynpvisitor50> Time for dinner, enjoy
02:18:41 <Biddle> BYe
02:34:45 <Biddle> Whoia pixels
02:40:26 <Biddle> bye

03:57:33 <Kevin L> Well he did want snow.....
04:08:49 <kcmule> lion
04:09:45 <kcmule> he should declare a state of Grahamergency and stay right there in the park
04:25:02 <kcmule> pretty patient animal..
04:26:23 <kcmule> which im sure has its limits
04:46:09 <kcmule> OF
04:46:28 <kcmule> and daisy 2244
04:47:26 <kcmule> choppy stream but clear as day
