16:14:04 <ynpvisitor86> Wow, quiet morning
17:07:14 <ynpvisitor39> It's the snow storm don't you know.
17:15:43 <ynpvisitor78> Daisy
17:26:15 <Jake> OF
18:06:17 <ynpvisitor74> Grand?
18:06:42 <Jake> yes
18:07:20 <ynpvisitor74> Do we have a cam op?
18:10:59 <Jake> doesn't seem like it
18:15:41 <ynpvisitor74> Wonder what's up with the bison. 2 groups are both moving around a lot.
18:17:37 <Michael> wrong time of year for a bear in the basin...
18:18:15 <ynpvisitor53> Looking for food?
18:18:56 <ynpvisitor74> Think it was something other than that. Awfully frisky.
18:19:47 <ynpvisitor53> Spring fever
18:20:03 <ynpvisitor74> :)
18:20:25 <ynpvisitor53> Looks like grand is kaput
18:26:41 <ynpvisitor3> I think the Saturday camop was live in person at Grand.
18:27:28 <ynpvisitor74> My thoughts, too.
18:29:14 <ynpvisitor31> I'll grab it for now
18:37:22 <joe thermop> 31, who is the person that makes cam op assignments, I maay be interested
18:50:02 <ynpvisitor31> I took care of joe thermop's request in private message.
18:50:05 <ynpvisitor53> lc ie
18:57:20 <Biddle> BH looks ready to blow
18:57:32 <ynpvisitor31> nope
18:58:03 <Biddle> Ik, but it just seems splahsy for 7 hrs
18:58:05 <ynpvisitor31> OF yes and Lion possibly but BH was early this morning sorry :(
18:58:28 <Biddle> Dave?
18:59:42 <ynpvisitor31> Shortest I've seen was a little over 8 hours and I've only seen that once. It ussualy splashes around the 8 hour mark.
19:00:11 <Biddle> lion is preplaying now
19:00:22 <Biddle> saw a couple of big jets
19:00:35 <ynpvisitor31> let's hope
19:01:16 <Biddle> They don't call it an unpredictable geyser for nothing OF
19:06:08 <ynpvisitor5> Good heavens , you go to all that effort to see Old Faithful, but you don't wait until the end?
19:07:11 <ynpvisitor31> What are you talking about. The camera is still pointed at Old Faithful.
19:07:46 <Biddle> having internet problems joe?
19:07:53 <ynpvisitor5> not the camera operator, the visitors
19:07:56 <joe thermop> Yes
19:09:09 <ynpvisitor5> its a little like leaving a game when the score is tied.
19:10:32 <ynpvisitor89> ohai you are a little close
19:11:06 <Jenna> but those tree branches should protect him....
19:11:47 <Biddle> I don't know if i would get that close to a bison. I don't like standing close to something that wouldn't lose any sleep over accidentally killing me...
19:14:07 <ynpvisitor6> this time of year there will be no consequences, yet not a bright person
19:34:20 <Betty> hello all
19:34:46 <joe thermop> Hello Betty
19:34:58 <Betty> hi Joe
19:35:38 <joe thermop> Are you back from skiing?
19:36:01 <Betty> just arrived home :-)
19:36:33 <joe thermop> I hope you had a great time
19:37:01 <Betty> yep. good weather, cold, but sunny
19:37:34 <joe thermop> good :)
19:38:00 <Betty> what did I miss? Giantess?
19:38:25 <ynpvisitor6> Graham did not succeed in waking up Plume or Giantess, alas
19:38:36 <Betty> bah
19:39:00 <ynpvisitor6> he did get quite a few Aurums though
19:39:14 <Betty> that´s good
19:39:23 <joe thermop> You did not miss giantess, you did miss Graham posting many geysers on GT during his visit
19:40:15 <Betty> is he able to go back? heard of heavy snowstorms and blizzards in the Eastern US
19:40:59 <joe thermop> I think he is still in the park
19:41:22 <Betty> k
19:41:46 <Jenna> according to the log, he is leaving today
19:42:17 <joe thermop> his last post was 1220 today tardy
19:43:26 <Jenna> I don't remember what time the coaches leave
19:44:37 <ynpvisitor6> 1245 he left for Mammoth
19:44:46 <ynpvisitor6> will fly home tomorrow
19:44:55 <ynpvisitor6> so far his flights are not canceled
19:46:08 <ynpvisitor6> there will be lots more snow at home for him than there is in the basin
19:47:15 <Jenna> definitely
19:49:52 <ynpvisitor6> still snowless in Iowa Jenna?
19:50:37 <Jenna> there is a little dusting from Wednesday, but highs around 40 tomorrow and Monday so it won't last
19:50:55 <Betty> Aurum?
19:51:01 <Betty> yep
19:51:49 <Betty> my 1st geyser in a week is Aurum. cool
19:52:01 <Jenna> don't tell Kevin!
19:52:13 <Betty> ;-9
19:52:17 <Betty> ;-9#
19:52:20 <Biddle> Hi Betty
19:52:23 <ynpvisitor6> and I missed it....
19:52:26 <Betty> ;-)
19:52:32 <ynpvisitor6> glad it was Aurum Betty
19:52:36 <Betty> hey Biddle
19:53:59 <Biddle> It would be nice to have the first geyser of the year be sometihng like Giant, but we werent that lucky. It ended up being SC
20:01:10 <joe thermop> gtg bbl
20:01:22 <Biddle> bye joe
20:06:02 <ynpvisitor6> Daisy ie
20:06:15 <Biddle> sweet!
20:06:32 <Betty> nice
20:07:21 <Betty> Riverside
20:07:32 <Biddle> sweet again!
20:08:34 <Betty> LC
20:09:41 <Kevin L> :p Missed Aurum. Welcome home Betty.
20:10:08 <Betty> bummer and thanks :-p
20:14:26 <Kevin L> I have been out digging up the tree that broke my water line and had to come in to stop the bleeding. Not been a fun day.
20:14:58 <Biddle> Sound like fun. How are the chickens?
20:15:44 <Kevin L> They are doing fine. I am hoping to find some more bantys this Spring.
20:16:15 <Kevin L> I have to manual water them until I get this pipe fixed.
20:33:58 <Betty> OF
20:45:01 <Betty> hmmm. looks more like riverside now
20:46:01 <ynpvisitor31> yep
20:46:08 <Betty> I edited my entry
20:49:07 <Biddle> I haven't seen a single OF today. I always leave 10 minutes beforehand...
20:52:25 <Betty> LC ie
20:54:03 <ynpvisitor99> Betty did you notice Eric put the temperature and wind speed at the top of the page?
20:54:59 <Betty> no, did not see that! VERY cool! thanks to him :-D
20:55:11 <ynpvisitor99> yes, nice addition
21:55:45 <Jake> F&M Report
21:56:52 <Jake> looks like Betty may have seen it 1407, report is 1415A from NPS
21:56:57 <Betty> oh, that must have been the steam cloud I thought it was Riverside at 1407
21:57:20 <Jake> but then you saw Riverside later? 1445?
21:57:44 <Betty> yes, Riverside was definitely later
21:58:25 <Jake> great! the capture will hopefully show enough to sort it out later
21:59:12 <Jake> except now that report is gone...
22:00:52 <ynpvisitor31> I double checked. Yes, Betty is correct. It was ie at 1407. The cam was pointing at Daisy when F&M started.
22:05:29 <Jake> well that's good. not sure what happened on GT, the F&M report was showing up then disappeared, now it appears again upon refresh
22:06:21 <ynpvisitor31> Betty you should enter your time
22:06:39 <Betty> ok, will do that
22:07:33 <ynpvisitor31> Hey Betty, my folks say hi (DaveM's folks say hi)
22:09:09 <Betty> nice, say hello to them :-D ~~~
22:18:15 <Jake> Little Cub major ie
22:33:49 <Betty> Artemesia?
22:43:18 <Biddle> ?I missed F&M? darn...
22:43:38 <Betty> no, you saw it.
22:43:51 <Betty> right after Daisy
22:44:06 <Biddle> Oh, that was it. looked a lot like riverside.
22:44:49 <ynpvisitor31> You really only see a diffference right at the start and then of course the duration is different.
22:45:02 <Betty> yeah. that was what I thought 1st. But Riverside was 45 min later for sure
22:45:09 <ynpvisitor31> We didn't see the start so....
22:46:17 <ynpvisitor31> Betty has a good point, if you see Riverside a little while later then you probably saw F&M earlier.
22:46:30 <Betty> haha
22:46:34 <Biddle> or the other way around
22:47:34 <Betty> thank god Riverside was that cooperative today ;-)
22:58:20 <ynpvisitor58> Daisy
23:03:41 <Betty> Lion
23:03:57 <ynpvisitor31> finally
23:41:37 <Maureen> It is misting out, icing rainy mist

03:05:25 <Kitt> Just got home and unpacked from Billings run
03:05:32 <Kitt> hello
03:05:41 <Kevin iPad> Wow!
03:06:00 <Kitt> Bill heard my phone whistle and said, "Beehive?"
03:06:38 <Kitt> roads were dry and walked around in shirtsleeves all day today
03:07:25 <ynpvisitor6> too bad it is so cloudy.
03:07:50 <Kitt> did Graham decide to postpone his trip home, since they have such awful weather?
03:07:54 <Will B> Riverside ie?
03:08:05 <ynpvisitor31> yes
03:08:09 <Kevin iPad> Same here Kitt
03:08:20 <Will B> Graham is going to see if he can spend an extra day in mammoth
03:08:21 <Kitt> hey there Steve O.
03:08:25 <ynpvisitor6> he is staying in Mammoth another day
03:08:40 <SteveO> Howdy Kitt
03:08:40 <ynpvisitor6> flight was canceled
03:08:49 <Kevin iPad> Smart move
03:09:12 <Kitt> aw, too bad he didn't stay at Old Faithful for another day
03:09:12 <ynpvisitor6> if he would have found out sooner, he could have stayed at OF, he was driving away as F & M erupted
03:09:35 <Kitt> F & M erupted?
03:09:43 <Kitt> cool
03:09:44 <Kevin iPad> Yep
03:09:58 <Kitt> who was lucky enough to see it?
03:10:11 <Will B> some visitors saw it
03:10:24 <ynpvisitor6> Betty got it near start on cam
03:11:51 <Will B> BH 2111
03:11:55 <Kitt> Beehive
03:12:32 <Will B> fuzzy
03:14:45 <Kitt> considering how I just drove home under the full moon in the dark, it is strange to see the UGB looking like it is daytime
03:15:07 <ynpvisitor6> the power of the cam
