13:23:57 <CC> Morning all
13:24:03 <DGInc> morning CC
13:24:16 <CC> Anyone having a problem with the stream freezing?
13:24:55 <DGInc> around 0545 and 0550 when it was switching to day mode, it's now fine
13:24:55 <CC> After OF I may reset camera.
13:25:02 <DGInc> sure
13:25:04 <ynpvisitor65> Working for me CC
13:25:14 <CC> okay thanks
13:25:48 <ynpvisitor65> Reset probably would not hurt though
13:27:52 <ynpvisitor65> BH looks dead.
13:28:27 <DGInc> yeah, probably went overnight
13:30:14 <ynpvisitor65> Now it frooze
13:30:42 <DGInc> probably because I reloaded my stream
13:35:53 <DGInc> OF
13:39:05 <DGInc> you can reset the cam if you want CC
13:41:41 <DGInc> webcam is resetting
13:42:10 <DGInc> or the stream just froze for a few seconds
13:47:43 <DGInc> wb CC
13:48:04 <CC> Stream still seems to be freezing...Sorry out of my control.
13:48:27 <CC> Rebooting didn't work this time
13:48:58 <DGInc> hmm, it doesn't freeze for me, only at 0741 when you reset the webcam
14:02:35 <DGInc> morning kcmule
14:05:06 <kcmule> mornin DG
14:05:21 <DGInc> morning Kevin
14:06:32 <Kevin L> Hi
14:13:27 <Kevin L> Looks like OF seismo is dead again.
14:50:57 <DGInc> the gap between OF 1910 on 11th of March and OF 0553 is closed
14:51:19 <DGInc> um... camop?
14:51:40 <DGInc> nvm
14:57:05 <ynpvisitor54> Bison in the meadow.
14:57:16 <DGInc> yes
14:58:44 <ynpvisitor54> They sense humans leaving soon. I am surprised they aren't frolicking.
15:01:12 <DGInc> OF
15:08:33 <DGInc> uhmm, anyone from YNPS here? something went wrong with your prediction...
15:09:49 <DGInc> you predicted OF for 1035 PM instead of 1035 AM
15:11:19 <ynpvisitor54> Rangers are packing. They have other things on their minds.
15:11:38 <ynpvisitor54> Also, they don't hang out here.
15:11:58 <DGInc> oh... I'm curious if the prediction for 1035 PM comes out =)
15:13:54 <ynpvisitor85> Some of the really good rangers are here on occasion, but never in uniform :)
15:14:12 <ynpvisitor54> :)
15:14:15 <DGInc> .
15:14:35 <ynpvisitor85> Saw that TSB mentioned there is a TSB5 in the works. Very good news.
15:14:57 <DGInc> morning Kent
15:15:10 <Kent> Good morning/afternoon
15:15:31 <DGInc> Lion ini

15:20:25 <DGInc> or Turban?
15:20:57 <DGInc> no, Grand, with spikes
15:27:21 <Kevin L> Looks like a baby Grand.
15:28:09 <DGInc> maybe it doesn't want to erupt
15:28:20 <DGInc> but it has to because of predictions
15:28:53 <DGInc> 2nd burst?
15:29:03 <Kevin L> Even the 2nd was wimpy
15:30:15 <DGInc> Grand quit I think
15:30:38 <DGInc> morning Jake
15:30:47 <Jake> friendly reminder: daylight saving time begins tonight
15:31:11 <DGInc> for me DST starts with Easter
15:31:54 <DGInc> Daisy?
15:32:27 <Kevin L> Cut the bottom off a blanket and sew it to the top and think you have a bigger blanket!
15:35:53 <DGInc> and there is Sprinkler again =)
15:46:37 <DGInc> I might've found BH in the time lapse from GOSA...
15:49:30 <DGInc> yes, BH was at 0519...

15:50:37 <DGInc> the time stamp starts at 0510 https://youtu.be/EkeZjEeczAc?t=878
15:53:44 <DGInc> BH is in the time lapse at 2/3 of the screen, OF at 3/4 of the sreen
15:56:16 <Jake> I think you're right
15:56:35 <Jake> it could be Lion, but unlikely with Lion initial at 0900
16:16:03 <DGInc> It's getting close for Castle
16:24:01 <DGInc> tourist bus
16:27:53 <DGInc> morning Graham

16:32:43 <DGInc> Castle
16:37:40 <ynpvisitor60> Castle seems to be having trouble.
16:38:01 <DGInc> yes, looks like a minor to me
16:39:00 <DGInc> Of
16:40:14 <DGInc> Maybe it's the wind, 60
16:40:20 <Graham> you are breaking all the geysers
16:40:44 <DGInc> I'm sorry, OK? I can't help it :P
16:41:01 <Graham> at least OF is a long

17:02:07 <DGInc (AFK)> Having dinner (it's 1902 here)
17:03:37 <Graham> i think i know how to report geysers :)
17:06:31 <ynpvisitor97> hey Graham, lc here
17:06:43 <ynpvisitor97> how is your weather?
17:11:48 <Graham> it was lovely last week, highs around 80. now cooler. early spring, cherry blossoms will bloom about 10 days early
17:11:58 <Graham> how are you doing this spring?
17:12:36 <ynpvisitor97> good here.

17:15:02 <DGInc (AFK)> back
17:15:18 <DGInc> morning lc
17:15:30 <ynpvisitor97> seems like a long time.
17:15:41 <ynpvisitor97> afternoon.
17:15:48 <Graham> nice. snow should have gone by then
17:16:18 <Graham> yeah, its always too long to the next visit. not sure when i will make it this year
17:16:25 <ynpvisitor97> snow is leaving pretty fast now.
17:16:42 <ynpvisitor97> not in July?
17:16:56 <DGInc> I might've seen an Aurum @0638, and it fits perfect in the interval time of the past Aurum
17:17:27 <DGInc> last Aurum*
17:17:29 <ynpvisitor97> you WILL be there for labor day?
17:20:42 <ynpvisitor97> nothing fits perfect with Aurum intervals.
17:20:53 <DGInc> oh, ok
17:21:32 <DGInc> and why on earth does my AFK name shows up while I changed it to my normal name?
17:21:41 <Graham> this year i don't know. work schedule right now makes Labor Day tough. may be easier in July
17:21:59 <Graham> of course work schedules can change too :)
17:23:18 <ynpvisitor97> understandd that.
17:23:58 <ynpvisitor97> we hope to make the two trips this year.
17:24:07 <Graham> i have cabin reservations for a total of 8 weeks but not sure I can use any of them
17:24:32 <Graham> not ready to cancel them tho
17:25:11 <ynpvisitor97> hope you can make it at least one of our trips
17:25:27 <Graham> yep, me too
17:26:13 <Graham> wonder what geyser excitement we will have this year
17:27:58 <ynpvisitor97> always a big ????
17:28:34 <ynpvisitor97> I keep hoping for Giant.
17:28:48 <Graham> Ledge was nice last year, maybe it will still be going although we had limited reports this winter
17:29:15 <ynpvisitor97> and a long trip up there.
17:30:29 <Graham> anybody home?
17:30:37 <ynpvisitor97> there is my cabin.

17:59:24 <Kevin L> So are you ready to come live in the desert now Graham?
17:59:31 <DGInc> good afternoon Kevin
17:59:38 <Jake> you could still be AFK if you had a long stick or telepathic powers
18:04:05 <Kevin L> Hi
18:05:03 <DGInc> tourist buses or are those people employees and tourists/visitors?
18:05:26 <Graham> snowmobile tours
18:06:19 <Kevin L> Last gasp visitors.
18:10:18 <DGInc> OF
18:10:20 <Graham> OF
18:15:52 <Kevin L> Time to watch grown men crash expensive cars. bbl

18:58:11 <DGInc> Lion
18:59:05 <DGInc> that was impressive...
18:59:34 <ynpvisitor11> so minor?
18:59:38 <Graham> it didnt really want to erupt
18:59:40 <DGInc> yes
18:59:50 <ynpvisitor11> it is tired
19:00:44 <DGInc> the interval between eruptions is now around 1 hour
19:01:03 <Graham> probably not to the next one
19:01:15 <ynpvisitor11> or it could be done
19:01:31 <DGInc> no, about 30-40 minutes or about 10-15 hours
19:01:37 <Graham> in which case it wont be an hour interval :)
19:01:41 <DGInc> or longer, or shorter
19:02:00 <DGInc> thought it went again
19:03:24 <DGInc> anyone seen Daisy?
19:03:50 <DGInc> I wasn't really watching the stream for the past hour, but there goes Sawmill
19:04:10 <DGInc> or Tardy
19:04:16 <Graham> dont think it has gone yet
19:04:38 <DGInc> we'll see
19:05:50 <DGInc> it would be nice to have a close-up of the Sawmill area with the names of the geysers in that area
19:06:03 <DGInc> from webcam perspective of course
19:07:04 <DGInc> AFK
19:26:07 <DGInc> back
19:28:25 <DGInc> Daisy
19:41:04 <DGInc> LC ie
19:43:16 <DGInc> OF
19:59:48 <DGInc> Lion is dead I think
20:02:17 <Graham> just sleeping
20:10:13 <DGInc> me no like u snow, go back to where you belong, the sea
20:12:35 <ynpvisitor11> yes, because snow comes from the sea
20:42:05 <DGInc> no snow, I told you to leave the UGB
20:49:39 <ynpvisitor82> We need the snow
20:49:48 <DGInc> why?
20:50:00 <ynpvisitor82> No snow, no geysers
20:50:30 <Graham> YEAH I GET REFUNDS
20:51:01 <ynpvisitor82> You loaned free money tothe tax man?
20:51:16 <DGInc> intentionally caps lock or just on accident?
20:51:23 <Graham> yeah i guess, but since interest rates are 0% these days its no bg deal
20:51:51 <ynpvisitor82> Going to spend it all on a geyser trip?
20:52:04 <Graham> always nicer to get money depisited in my account rather tha wothdrawn
20:52:09 <ynpvisitor82> Yes cap lock was intentional. He was HAPPY
20:52:27 <Graham> of course i got a bigger refund because i earned less and still had high withholding
20:52:59 <ynpvisitor82> You do your own?
20:53:22 <Graham> yeah my taxes are pretty simple
20:53:32 <Graham> stil use the tax SW tho
20:53:43 <ynpvisitor82> By hand or program
20:54:04 <Graham> have not done them by hand for years, too many worksheets to do
20:54:15 <Graham> get the SW free, so might as well use it
20:54:31 <ynpvisitor82> sw? have not heard of it
20:55:07 <Graham> software - either Turbo Tax or HR Block. HR Block this year, free state filing
20:55:08 <ynpvisitor82> oh soft ware
20:55:47 <ynpvisitor82> I looked and do not qualify for the free filing for state, unless I do it by hand
20:56:11 <ynpvisitor82> They do offer an online form filling service
20:56:17 <Graham> i just get them mailed or thru TRowePrice
20:56:44 <Graham> lots of rules on the web site systems
20:56:48 <ynpvisitor82> Different states and different rules i guess
20:57:26 <DGInc> afternoon Biddle
20:57:36 <Biddle> Hi DGInc
20:57:44 <Graham> refund will fund a trip to YNP, yeah
20:58:02 <ynpvisitor82> So you used up all your luck for the day, I can go and not worry about missing bh.
20:58:31 <Graham> hehe, any geysers will be a bonus .. i am on a lucky streak so stick around
20:58:49 <Graham> peeps probably think BHI is erupting all these dings
20:59:00 <DGInc> haha
20:59:05 <ynpvisitor82> Lucky streak, you could use the refund to buy loto tickets
20:59:33 <ynpvisitor82> It is a chat
21:00:09 <ynpvisitor82> I guess you could send out a text saying you got a refund. That would tic people off
21:01:00 <DGInc> Event Non-Geyser Related 1451ie | Graham got a refund
21:01:13 <ynpvisitor82> I was hoping from reading the gt log on lion that it would go.
21:01:45 <ynpvisitor82> No, Graham is funding a YNP trip.
21:01:48 <Graham> well i dont have the refund yet, just the anticipation of gertting one
21:02:07 <Graham> and i checked the numbers twice ... so theres a chance its right
21:02:17 <DGInc> Event Non-Geyser Related 1451ie | Graham is funding a YNP trip*
21:03:20 <Graham> now everyone will be asking for money
21:03:40 <Graham> got to convince my boss to give me time off
21:03:47 <ynpvisitor82> ten bucks does not go far
21:04:15 <ynpvisitor82> Wait 25 is what it costs to get in the park
21:04:20 <Graham> 0.1 cabin nights
21:04:49 <Graham> downer is i lost my parks pass in death valley
21:05:05 <Graham> only 3 months into the year
21:05:12 <DGInc> while enjoying the flowers over there?
21:05:26 <Graham> yeah i think i left it in the rental car
21:05:33 <ynpvisitor82> ten bucks will not pay for a night on the bench, don't the tickets they hand out start at 100 bucks?
21:05:33 <Graham> still worth it
21:05:56 <ynpvisitor82> I think you can get a replacement cant you?
21:06:43 <Graham> i doubt it
21:07:22 <Graham> refund will cover the new pass cost too
21:07:36 <ynpvisitor82> Nope, just checked.
21:13:21 <DGInc> OF
21:17:47 <DGInc> yay, snow shower... good bye view

21:29:30 <DGInc> where is Clastic actually?
21:29:38 <Graham> I have seen something up-slope from Beehive but not sure if its the same thing
21:29:59 <Graham> there was a suggested pic posted on the listserver
21:30:13 <ynpvisitor90> just looking at that now- have you studied Scott's map with arrows he sent?
21:30:24 <ynpvisitor90> I just found it in my spam folder, his emails don't come thru for me
21:32:54 <ynpvisitor82> Looks more like rain.
21:33:47 <ynpvisitor82> one and done

22:42:38 <Graham> did they end up with normal snow this winter?
22:53:14 <Graham> OF
23:19:11 <Kevin L> No refunds Graham, but harry sure takes his share!
23:20:56 <Kent> Kevin, is Harry finished or is he going to run again?

23:26:12 <ynpvisitor97> Riverside 1724
23:28:15 <Kent> Thanks, I hadn't heard.
23:31:17 <Kevin L> I hope we get an improvement, which normally would not have been difficult, but as of late, who knows?
23:36:19 <Kevin L> We get another hour of light tomorrow.night.
23:46:35 <kcmule> should get some lunar help by this time next week
23:53:11 <ynpvisitor77> the clouds are really moving

00:31:20 <Kent> I was hoping before dark
00:31:44 <ynpvisitor70> Not sure. Picture is too fuzzy.
00:32:01 <ynpvisitor70> No steam now.
00:32:56 <Kent> I'm going to cast it to the big screen and have a look
00:34:13 <ynpvisitor70> There is what looks like a small pile of snow that when pixilated it kind of looks like bhi
00:35:55 <Kent> I can't tell on the big screen, but there is a relatively constant stream coming from the area
00:38:40 <ynpvisitor70> BH in this light would be pretty.
00:40:21 <ynpvisitor70> Dinner time. Oh well.
00:40:32 <Kent> The steam does not look like splashes to me. It almost looks like CTC
00:40:34 <ynpvisitor70> Have a good evening.

01:42:12 <kcmule> lion ie

05:23:34 <ynpvisitor8> Gosh, I thought Kevin was staying up the change his clocks.
05:24:11 <ynpvisitor8> I for one can not see a thing, must have been enough left over light for exciting things earlier.
05:25:16 <ynpvisitor8> All I see are the coyotes, um dancing, on the boardwalk. Unless I am seeing things!
