06:40:18 <ynpvisitor50> Sawmill
06:41:42 <Kevin L> Barbara said that there were no closures listed as she came in the west gate yesterday, but did not mention that it was open.
06:45:01 <Kevin L> Couple of big quakes last night. 6.6 in Fiji and a 7.2 in the south Atlantic.

06:50:11 <ynpvisitor23> Listserv post from Lynn just answered my question
06:54:58 <ynpvisitor33> Hi 23, can you post on here if Firehole Lake Drive is open?
06:58:58 <ynpvisitor23> Lynn's post from yesterday said it was due to open today
06:59:28 <ynpvisitor23> we should see some GT entries when peiople get signal - that will confirm it
07:28:59 <ynpvisitor33> thanks
07:42:15 <Graham> theres a GF overflow report
08:38:27 <Graham> Lion
09:14:01 <ynpvisitor23> ...
09:24:00 <ynpvisitor23> at this rate, Beehive could beat Grand
09:44:31 <Betty> hello guys
09:45:14 <Betty> I´m here for the 10:30 BH
09:49:06 <ynpvisitor23> not out of the question!!
09:54:36 <Betty> Lion
09:59:40 <Kevin L> Hi Betty.
10:00:02 <Betty> hey Kevin
10:01:44 <Kevin L> Just got done training. Now time to go watch it rain on expensive cars.
10:04:01 <ynpvisitor23> 206 days since the last Pink Cone entry - let's hope that changes today!!
10:04:48 <Betty> Is FLD open now?
10:11:17 <Betty> Grand
10:20:57 <ynpvisitor36> looks so quiet, hope that is not the end
10:21:30 <ynpvisitor36> FLD opened this morning
10:21:39 <Betty> great
10:21:51 <ynpvisitor36> wow, all that wait for a one burst
10:22:09 <Betty> bummer
10:22:25 <ynpvisitor36> the west gate was backed up outside of town again
10:24:00 <ynpvisitor36> at least Grand went before 10 hours. Now everyone will be waiting for BH, which may decide to do a 20 hour interval....
10:26:10 <ynpvisitor23> what time was the gate backed up ?
10:32:15 <ynpvisitor36> I bet the max was around 11, it was still backed up at noon
10:32:26 <ynpvisitor36> the lanes were full to town by 9
10:32:54 <ynpvisitor36> as they expected, there are a LOT of people
10:34:29 <ynpvisitor23> that is a WOW for end of May. Just Wow
10:41:09 <ynpvisitor36> I was visiting with a ranger friend, and during that time at least 10 groups came up and spoke with us, not one of them was American. Lots of Europeans, and of course, Asians
10:42:40 <ynpvisitor23> Have to wonder what the first time visitor thinks with all the crowds. We regulars know how to avoid it, somewhat
10:43:02 <ynpvisitor36> no avoiding the jam that I missed GF for
10:43:52 <ynpvisitor23> sorry to hear that
10:44:02 <ynpvisitor23> bison/elk/eagle?
10:44:41 <ynpvisitor36> it resolved before I found out, yet I saw a huge herd of bison at Nez Perce picnic area when it cleared, so I think that was it.
10:45:43 <Betty> we need a geyser gazer lane on the street :-)
10:47:28 <ynpvisitor36> ha ha, if only. More fisherman than I have ever seen on opening day, some pullouts were full up with groups fishing
10:47:56 <ynpvisitor36> just checking licenses could keep rangers busy all day, yet I am sure traffic will be the main concern
10:49:17 <ynpvisitor23> I was in a jam once when the whole herd went from Madison up to Nez Perce. There was no way around it. A guy fishing passed me three times, on foot!
10:50:04 <ynpvisitor36> that was the case today. I spoke with someone that encountered them right after they left Madison earlier
10:51:05 <Betty> so we need a bison lane
10:51:24 <ynpvisitor36> they have the right of way now
10:51:38 <Betty> I know
10:52:04 <ynpvisitor36> thankfully they are not hazing them back into the park this year, or the Madison corridor would be much worse
10:52:33 <ynpvisitor36> when was the last OF?
10:53:04 <ynpvisitor36> vw just posted it, 1237
11:09:20 <ynpvisitor21> Lion
11:09:20 <Betty> Lion
11:15:08 <Betty> Riverside ie
11:46:24 <ynpvisitor23> .
11:58:57 <ynpvisitor100> wow, big crowd
12:06:37 <ynpvisitor100> OF ie
12:06:45 <Brian> it's going to be a busy summer
12:07:10 <ynpvisitor100> no kidding, big holiday weekend but still
12:22:53 <Betty> yay, Lion
13:00:48 <ynpvisitor8> Long Daisy interval.
13:29:02 <Betty> Lion
13:29:02 <ynpvisitor14> Lion
13:29:16 <Betty> and LC
13:36:26 <Biddle> OF
13:36:27 <ynpvisitor56> OF
13:59:55 <Betty> Oblong
14:00:06 <ynpvisitor14> Was just going to say that :)
14:00:26 <Betty> :-)
14:08:32 <ynpvisitor14> Betty, actual start time of Oblong was 1556 per basin report. (I usually call it ie when seen on the webcam.) Just thought you might want to know :)
14:09:05 <Betty> ok, thanks
14:11:25 <Betty> you think we missed Daisy or is it a long interval?
14:11:58 <Betty> weather is not too bad
14:12:08 <Biddle> we might have missed it. We will know when it erupts
14:12:55 <ynpvisitor14> That is a long interval! When I was in the basin in April, long Daisy intervals seemed to be related to strong wind.
14:13:30 <Betty> yeah, we had intevals more than 5 hrs
14:14:34 <Biddle> we might not know if it is a double interval when it erupts
14:15:02 <Betty> I think we are near BHI. I can feel it :-)
14:15:43 <Biddle> is it possible to tell from the camera if there is water in the indy?
14:16:10 <Betty> no
14:16:16 <ynpvisitor14> Nope, but sometimes someone from the basin posts.
14:16:24 <Biddle> didn't think so
14:16:53 <Betty> maybe on a very cold day with a close closeup you can see it steam.
14:17:10 <Betty> had that once
14:17:26 <Betty> but nothing to be sure of
14:17:53 <Biddle> thats Daisy
14:17:54 <ynpvisitor14> The Indicator often steams lightly for some time before starting - but it can do that for a LONG time.
14:18:04 <Betty> whoooo, fin ally
14:20:18 <ynpvisitor14> Very pretty today. I love it when the wind makes it stand up.
14:21:51 <ynpvisitor14> Quite a crowd. Wish I was there!
14:22:17 <ynpvisitor92> You can feel BHI from Germany?
14:22:29 <Betty> yep
14:23:14 <ynpvisitor92> My feeling is 20 hrs.
14:23:21 <Betty> we share the same initials ;-) . we are connected underground
14:23:37 <Biddle> nice
14:23:37 <ynpvisitor92> It is too confused after those two shorts
14:23:39 <ynpvisitor8> Feed it a pretzel
14:24:14 <Biddle> unless you have a hidden heat-resistant cam in BH's Chamber
14:24:19 <ynpvisitor92> If only there were good pretzels in the basin
14:28:52 <ynpvisitor14> Lion
14:29:16 <Betty> nice series so far
14:29:28 <ynpvisitor14> Yes!
14:29:45 <Betty> no. 7
14:32:11 <Betty> maybe Depression?
14:32:26 <Betty> people looking at it
14:33:20 <Betty> no, but thanks for checking
14:33:52 <ynpvisitor8> Bored BH customers
15:04:34 <Betty> OF
15:05:37 <ynpvisitor8> Where is BHI?
15:13:13 <ynpvisitor92> Only 4 more hours until BH
15:13:20 <Biddle> Im leaving for a bit, it should erupt now.
15:29:23 <Kevin L> I am heading out for a few. hoping for a txt.
15:46:05 <Kevin L> Getting tired Betty?
15:46:33 <Betty> not asleep yet :-p
15:48:23 <Kevin L> It picks now to go to a more normal interval. I really hate those short no indy eruptions.
15:50:34 <Kevin L> Summer is sure coming. 91 right now, supposed to be 15 degrees hotter next week. :p
15:51:17 <Betty> yes, I saw you will hit 3 digits
15:51:32 <Kevin L> Indy?
15:52:05 <Betty> I don´t see it
15:52:35 <Kevin L> Think just the way the steam was blowing. Only one Aurum reported today.
16:05:59 <Betty> BH splashing
16:06:03 <Kevin L> Now THAT liiks like BH
16:06:06 <Betty> BH
16:06:17 <Betty> no indy again
16:07:26 <Andrew> thanks for the text
16:07:50 <Andrew> two days in a row
16:10:04 <Kevin L> I hate it when it doesn't do indy.
16:11:43 <Kevin L> I am hoping I didn't grab the cam from someone, but it looked like it was on autopilot.
16:12:51 <Kevin L> Back to autopilot. Glad I walked in when I did.
16:13:06 <Betty> time for sleep now. Night
16:13:56 <Kevin L> Night
