22:41:01 <DGInc> if you can light up the whole basin with these headlights, please do that =)
23:01:28 <DGInc> could it be possible the 2310+- 17 minutes eruption was a short one?
23:05:55 <DGInc> yay, pre-eruptive spouting from OF
23:31:20 <ynpvisitor80> hi
23:32:12 <DGInc> hi
00:06:22 <DGInc> OF
00:06:46 <DGInc> finally!
00:16:14 <DGInc> And the cam is down =(
00:16:21 <DGInc> nightly reset I guess
00:48:02 <DGInc> cam is back, up and running
00:48:28 <DGInc> 0215 down, 0245 up I think
01:14:48 <DGInc> the chat still uses Adobe Shockwave?!
01:15:45 <DGInc> brb
01:16:50 <DGInc> back
01:59:24 <DGInc> OF
02:05:10 <DGInc> it's dawning
02:05:29 <DGInc> night won't be too long now =)
02:21:58 <DGInc> Castle's site looks pretty dead, last eruption might've been a major.
02:39:27 <DGInc> cam is switching to day mode
02:42:43 <DGInc> Lion, maybe initial
02:43:41 <DGInc> slow start, only duration needed to say if it's an initial or not
02:48:56 <ynpvisitor22> Lion might have been an initial, still going
02:49:12 <ynpvisitor22> oops should have read the log :)
02:49:29 <DGInc> hi Graham
02:49:49 <Graham> i would tag it as an initial
02:50:04 <DGInc> I did
02:51:03 <DGInc> hi Betty
02:51:11 <Betty> morning Graham and DGInc
02:53:56 <Graham> morning
03:01:49 <DGInc> YES! The Strokkur webcam is back up!
03:02:34 <Graham> igood to see Micah is in the park - I was wondering who posted Snort
03:02:41 <Graham> a peep
03:02:58 <Betty> no a ghost
03:03:47 <Betty> Snort?
03:04:09 <Graham> geyser in LGB that nobody reports - except Micah
03:04:20 <Graham> on GT yesterday
03:05:01 <Graham> guess he drove through at 2134
03:05:05 <Betty> I don´t see it
03:05:32 <Betty> Kidney?
03:08:33 <Graham> LGB too, both are on the left side as you drive over the flats toward Fountain heading to OF
03:09:06 <Graham> Snort is at the south end in the hills. Kidney in the flat froup of springs near the old Ftn Hotel
03:09:20 <Betty> ok, thanks
03:09:22 <Graham> sorry SNort is in the north end as you enter the flats
03:10:41 <Graham> all you can see is the steam from SNort. Kidney is small frequently seen but rarely reported since its small and frequent
03:14:02 <DGInc> Oblong?
03:16:36 <Graham> yep, jim posted it
03:16:58 <Graham> must be low humidity, very little steam for early morning
03:17:09 <DGInc> yeah
03:18:52 <DGInc> I really need two screens - one for Iceland and one for Yellowstone...
03:27:38 <DGInc> OF
03:31:32 <Graham> Jim is on GH
03:35:15 <DGInc> AFK
03:48:38 <DGInc> Daisy ie
04:00:00 <Betty> Lion
04:01:33 <Graham> nice sunlight on the hills
04:01:45 <DGInc> indeed
04:01:46 <Betty> yes
04:03:31 <Betty> imagine standing right there...breathing the cold fresh morning air. gorgeous
04:06:46 <DGInc> Beehive is in the prediction window
04:06:49 <Betty> Aurum is heating up
04:07:52 <DGInc> within half an hour an Aurum maybe?
04:08:19 <Betty> would be nice
04:08:33 <Betty> but who knows...
04:08:41 <DGInc> indeed
04:09:41 <Graham> within half an hour of which hour?
04:09:58 <Betty> haha
04:10:24 <DGInc> uhmm... it would be ideal this hour
04:10:53 <ynpvisitor95> sometime today would be good!
04:11:40 <Graham> Kevin isnt there so it will probably be more frequent now
04:11:47 <DGInc> haha
04:12:47 <Betty> steam in Plate area
04:13:11 <DGInc> any camops here?
04:13:15 <Graham> probably the spring in front of it
04:13:17 <Betty> and Improbable is more active
04:13:36 <Betty> Dragon spring?
04:13:57 <Graham> dunno the name
04:14:11 <DGInc> where exactly?
04:14:39 <Betty> OF steam is hiding it most time
04:14:52 <Graham> its directly in front of plate on the cam, so much in line that you cant tell unless you see water and then its Plate
04:15:22 <DGInc> a little bit to the left of OF's cone?
04:15:32 <Betty> yup
04:17:46 <DGInc> could it be Slot?
04:18:45 <Betty> Slot is right of Plate in this view, correct?
04:19:17 <DGInc> whoops
04:19:45 <DGInc> Roof maybe?
04:19:52 <Graham> yes SLot is a bit to the right. have not heard any reports of it recently tho
04:20:03 <Graham> not many plate reports either
04:20:17 <Betty> roof is further left
04:20:51 <DGInc> Strokkur cam is quite laggy, have to reload the page every one or two minutes...
04:20:54 <Betty> I think in line with the sign
04:21:11 <Betty> don´t break it ;-)
04:21:56 <DGInc> It can't be my internet since everything is fine on my end
04:22:25 <DGInc> sometimes Yellowstone is closer than Iceland
04:24:49 <DGInc> finally Strokkur cam is stabilising a bit
04:39:07 <Betty> Turban?
04:39:19 <DGInc> maybe
04:43:55 <DGInc> hi steam
04:45:22 <steam> Hi DG
04:48:45 <Betty> BH splash
04:48:59 <steam> BH is warming up
04:49:00 <DGInc> just caught that
04:49:03 <Betty> BIG
04:49:17 <Betty> those were 2!
04:50:03 <Betty> maybe a no-indicator today?
04:50:23 <DGInc> Alright Beehive, I know you want to erupt, but wake your Indicator up first. Then more people will enjoy your eruption.
04:53:23 <Betty> indy

04:54:36 <Betty> text is sent
04:55:07 <steam> zoom zoom zoom
04:55:19 <David A pdx> Thanks Betty!
04:55:28 <Betty> hi Kevin and David
04:55:31 <Kevin iPad> Nice wake up!
04:55:42 <DGInc> hello David & Kevin
04:55:53 <Graham> :)
04:55:58 <David A pdx> Good Morning (afternoon!) DGI!
04:56:08 <Kevin iPad> Hi
04:56:41 <Graham> OF going to be the spoiler?
04:56:57 <Betty> ohoh, fluffy is due
04:57:03 <DGInc> run run run!
04:57:05 <Betty> BH runner!
04:57:06 <Graham> run run run
04:57:15 <steam> Hive fan in a hurry
04:57:18 <Graham> who?
04:57:29 <David A pdx> I'm getting excited about my trip there in just over a week!!
04:57:47 <Betty> whoo, great, David
04:57:50 <steam> And your little dog too
04:58:55 <David A pdx> not sure which day we'll be in UGB but it will be 22-24.
04:59:14 <Betty> cool
04:59:24 <DGInc> maybe a trifecta with OF, Beehive and Lion?
04:59:43 <Betty> nice closeup
05:00:33 <DGInc> I have the feeling I'm spamming Strokkur in GT...
05:01:00 <Graham> nothing wrong with that
05:01:21 <Kevin iPad> Hope of is a short
05:01:44 <DGInc> or waits till Beehive is done
05:02:06 <David A pdx> this could be interesting!
05:02:37 <Graham> Strokur used to have bursts but maybe not now?
05:02:45 <DGInc> race against the clock!
05:03:33 <DGInc> steam obscures the sight, can't tell how many bursts there are Graham
05:04:55 <DGInc> dang it OF
05:04:55 <Betty> OF
05:05:22 <David A pdx> i hope someone gets a photo of the duet...
05:05:28 <David A pdx> from the other side.
05:05:30 <Betty> meh
05:05:35 <DGInc> great... a steam curtain :/
05:06:04 <Kevin iPad> :p
05:06:04 <David A pdx> i have photos of Indy and OF duet from 2013!!
05:07:21 <DGInc> Anemone Big
05:07:22 <Betty> Anemone
05:08:03 <Graham> dont worry, BHI is still going
05:08:14 <DGInc> :)
05:08:35 <David A pdx>
05:08:47 <DGInc> Lion is warming up, hopefully
05:09:06 <David A pdx> looks like it!
05:09:36 <steam> Probably sounds like it
05:09:53 <Betty> meow
05:12:00 <DGInc> we're off!
05:12:03 <Betty> BH
05:12:20 <David A pdx> sweet!
05:12:31 <David A pdx> now we won't see LC!! LOL
05:12:36 <steam> Hot
05:12:47 <Betty> BUMMER!
05:14:44 <DGInc> bye Indy
05:15:12 <Graham> d=21
05:16:21 <DGInc> Lion ns
05:16:40 <Betty> I´m lagged
05:16:42 <David A pdx> Nice!!
05:19:30 <DGInc> bye Bee, see you next time!
05:20:32 <Kevin iPad> At least they are taking turns!
05:20:45 <Betty> good time to run some errands
05:20:45 <DGInc> Maybe LC ns
05:20:52 <Betty> bbl
05:20:58 <DGInc> bye
05:33:42 <DGInc> Aurum!
05:50:18 <Kevin iPad> .
05:51:09 <Kevin iPad> Bummer. I missed Aurum.
05:51:18 <DGInc> :/
05:52:10 <Kevin iPad> At least Andrew got it!
05:59:24 <DGInc> going to do some other stuff, bye
06:01:09 <ynpvisitor95> Andrew said he was done with Aurum - ha! Sees one when he's not trying, maybe there is something to that?
06:02:01 <ynpvisitor26> A watched boil never pots
06:03:38 <Kevin iPad> Morning Jenna. Working today?
06:03:47 <ynpvisitor95> let's not look at Giant then
06:32:30 <Jenna> morning Kevin, yes I am
06:37:48 <Kevin iPad> A bit of quiet time Jenna!
06:39:26 <Graham> i see they got Aurum
06:40:01 <Kevin iPad> And I didn't. :(
06:40:10 <Graham> boooo
06:41:08 <Kevin iPad> Andrew got it but I assume it was from a distance.
06:41:31 <Graham> it was seen on cam too
06:41:46 <Graham> theres a secondary wc entry
06:43:07 <Kevin iPad> I think it is in once a day mode.
06:44:39 <Graham> 1 June it had a 5h interval, but it does that
06:46:19 <Kevin iPad> The one I caught was over 24 hours. Can't remember what day but it was at 1633.
06:46:36 <Graham> E times posted, Grand is just in its window
06:47:58 <Graham> on the 5th Kevin - prior two intervals were 10-11, so maybe it went in the night too?
06:49:48 <Kevin iPad> bw was totally dry in the morning.
06:50:23 <Kevin iPad> Heading out for a bit. Bbl.
06:50:38 <Graham> Daisy
06:54:46 <ynpvisitor96> Is it typical for Strokkur to go outside the top of the frame in the webcam?
06:58:09 <Graham> dunno
07:02:27 <Graham> Giamtess has only 6 days to erupt or it sets a new longest interval record, beating the last interval of 2y139 days
07:02:41 <Graham> at ;least back to the 80s on GT
07:03:10 <ynpvisitor95> Hope so, for Micah
07:03:24 <Graham> anyone know how long he isthere?
07:04:34 <Graham> last one during the summer season was 2011 - so lots of people want to see it, Will hasn't seen it either
07:05:06 <Graham> think i missed the last one in Jan by a week
07:43:10 <ynpvisitor95> .
08:08:07 <ynpvisitor22> Not a buch of people for a saturday.
08:09:34 <Graham> Oblong
08:12:09 <Kevin ipad> Oblong & Turban
08:12:54 <Graham> nice day for a rest at Grand
08:13:30 <ynpvisitor22> Turblong, or Obban?
08:14:01 <ynpvisitor22> 59 is a bit chilly
08:14:25 <Kevin ipad> Longer intervals but more multiple bursts.
08:16:27 <ynpvisitor22> Would rather it was more normal so I could see it 2 or 3 times a day and get to see other things. Setting for the hours needed to catch a near normal interval or the new normal would take way too long for me.
08:17:48 <ynpvisitor78> I do not think the longer intervals trend to more multiple bursts.
08:18:18 <ynpvisitor78> Is there any data behind that Kevin?
08:18:40 <ynpvisitor78> Lots of long waits for one bursts
08:19:02 <ynpvisitor22> He is waiting for the train to come aroud with his Ipad.
08:19:34 <Graham> i think there have been more multiple bursts recently and longer intervals. not going to make that statement in general tho because in 2012 when it was having very short intervals there were plenty of multiple burst eruptions too
08:20:15 <Graham> i don't know theres trending, but stuff happens
08:20:35 <ynpvisitor78> I don't think data supports the more multiple bursts lately
08:20:54 <Kevin ipad> Probably is data, but I am going off what I have seen.
08:21:01 <ynpvisitor78> And too many missing burst counts
08:21:31 <ynpvisitor78> How long were you there?
08:21:39 <ynpvisitor22> I think the weight of all the extra visitors walking around and buses in the parking lot is effecting the pressures in the basin. Hows that for a theory?
08:22:13 <Graham> GT misses a lot of 1 burst counts
08:22:21 <ynpvisitor78> Nonsensical yet I guess a theory
08:22:32 <ynpvisitor22> Send a mad dog after the guy on the bike.
08:22:46 <Kevin ipad> 2/3 of the eruptions I saw there were 2b
08:23:16 <ynpvisitor78> How many did you see? I would say you were fortunate !
08:23:34 <Graham> certainly more 2b eruptions now than what i saw the week i was there in Jan - but agree thats not statistically significant
08:24:01 <Kevin ipad> Well I did only see 3...
08:24:18 <Graham> i think i saw 11 and 10 were 1b
08:24:20 <ynpvisitor78> small data set!
08:24:37 <Graham> or something like that
08:24:52 <Kevin ipad> But there seem to be more on the ones I get on the cam.
08:25:06 <ynpvisitor78> Let's hope this wait produces a 2 burst at least.
08:26:10 <ynpvisitor78> Thankfully it is always a good eruption, even with a single burst
08:26:12 <ynpvisitor22> It would be interesting to see if interval has any effect on duration.
08:26:39 <ynpvisitor78> Yes, only too many go unseen
08:27:11 <ynpvisitor78> And when it was doing 5 hour intervals there were plenty of multiple bursts
08:27:50 <Kevin ipad> It will vary year to year. Even month to month.
08:28:11 <ynpvisitor78> I agree
08:29:03 <Kevin ipad> BUT that is what makes them interesting.
08:30:03 <Graham> if you count eruptions with confirmed on site data in the last 20 eruptions there have been more 2b than 1. each prior block of 20 has less
08:30:08 <Graham> for what its worth
08:30:28 <ynpvisitor22> Saying that implies they are totally random events. Asking may trigger someone to find what triggers could be causing the differences.
08:30:59 <ynpvisitor22> Sorry saying they very year to year.
08:31:11 <Graham> well we know that happens
08:31:19 <Graham> and they can change suddenly
08:31:39 <Graham> i think there have beem more 3b eruptions this year than last
08:31:51 <Graham> although i have not done the counts
08:32:09 <Graham> i just dont remember hearing of many then
08:32:14 <Kevin ipad> That is why we spend more time watching geysers than waterfalls.
08:32:41 <ynpvisitor22> I like waterfalls. And the ocean.
08:33:13 <ynpvisitor78> Did you get a 3 burst Kevin?
08:34:20 <Kevin ipad> Only 2b
08:34:54 <ynpvisitor78> Just being on the other side of the trees is special
08:35:09 <Kevin ipad> For sure!
08:35:37 <Kevin ipad> And I did get an Aurum.
08:38:00 <ynpvisitor78> Go Aurum! So brief yet so fun to catch.
08:38:42 <Kevin ipad> Even got Pink Cone on the way out.
09:01:46 <ynpvisitor100> Everyone wave.
09:04:57 <Graham> one more chance for Grand to go under 10h
09:25:34 <Graham> 10h here we come. one chance to erupt before we set a new long for the last 100
09:26:39 <Kevin ipad> Dave broke it.
09:32:56 <ynpvisitor100> Kevin is that last one to set by it.
09:33:28 <ynpvisitor100> Must not be any marmounts at Grand.
09:42:28 <Graham> going to set a new long for Grand
09:58:59 <Graham> OF
09:59:04 <Graham> and another Turban
10:14:06 <Kevin ipad> Wow! Still no Grand?
10:15:31 <Graham> nor Daisy
10:17:52 <Graham> another turban
10:18:04 <Graham> could get to 11h now
10:18:29 <Graham> hehe Art at Grand quit, not surprised
10:23:34 <ynpvisitor13> Jim S has been there recording Turbans for 4 hours
10:24:48 <Graham> must be witing for Daisy
10:26:00 <ynpvisitor20> a 35 min Turban
10:26:50 <ynpvisitor20> sorry, I was looking at Tardy.
10:27:58 <ynpvisitor13> will it or won't it go to 11 hours? Soon BH will have shorter intervals than Grand
10:28:55 <ynpvisitor87> Somehow we can pin this on Kevin, right?
10:29:03 <Kevin ipad> It is getting ready for you Graham.
10:29:20 <Kevin ipad> :p
10:29:32 <ynpvisitor13> the geyser app has changed Grand to NO PREDICTION
10:29:47 <ynpvisitor13> too far outside their original window
10:30:12 <Graham> haha thanks Kevin
10:30:22 <Graham> maybe Grand is just skipping an eruption
10:30:49 <Kevin ipad> It knows you are coming Dave.
10:31:53 <Graham> finally Daisy
10:32:11 <Dave from GF> Graham, did you enjoy your time in the Black Hills?
10:32:23 <Kevin ipad> It wants a sacrifice. Bring a halibut Dave.
10:32:52 <Dave from GF> At least BH is playing nice
10:33:22 <Art (at Grand)> Pulled into the lot and heard waves on grand
10:33:45 <Art (at Grand)> Was cursing the bison jam
10:34:39 <Graham> had a great trip to the Black Hills, want to go back
10:34:41 <Kevin ipad> You wanted bison jelly?
10:34:53 <Dave from GF> Lots of fun things to do
10:35:18 <Dave from GF> GRAND
10:35:22 <Graham> rode the 1880 train, went to Rushmore, Wind Cave, Badlands, Devils Tower
10:35:35 <Dave from GF> Jewel Cave is fun as well
10:35:43 <Graham> made it to 11h
10:35:57 <Graham> was with my mom so needed an accessible tour
10:37:49 <Dave from GF> At what point do gazers start keeping an eye on F&M again?
10:39:30 <Graham> i guess someone will check it to see if it did something overnight, but probably not watching till day 5
10:40:26 <ynpvisitor13> surprised no one in the park reported Daisy
10:40:33 <Graham> 5d3h is the shortest in the recent series
10:40:52 <Graham> they have all fallen asleep
10:40:58 <ynpvisitor13> maybe so
10:41:28 <Dave from GF> All going to enjoy grand since they had to wait so long
10:42:08 <Kevin ipad> Hope it does more than 1b for them
10:45:42 <ynpvisitor13> 11 min in
10:47:51 <Kevin ipad> A 1b. :(
10:47:56 <Art (at Grand)> Birthday Grands are the best Grands. :)
10:48:09 <ynpvisitor13> glad you enjoyed it
10:48:10 <Graham> hope you all enjoyed the wait
10:48:14 <Graham> happy Birthday
10:48:28 <Kevin ipad> It was waiting for you.
10:52:42 <Dave from GF> How do you change your 12 selected geysers on GT?
10:53:08 <Graham> click on your name
10:53:25 <Dave from GF> Thanks. just found it
10:54:20 <Dave from GF> Can you pick more than 12?
10:54:35 <Graham> i think so, not sure. just try it
10:55:23 <ynpvisitor13> nope, only 12
10:56:03 <ynpvisitor13> I mean 10, I could only add 10
10:56:22 <Dave from GF> I have 17 showing up!
10:56:34 <ynpvisitor13> oh, I may have to revisit that then
10:56:56 <Graham> i have 15
10:57:51 <Kevin ipad> You can count to 17 Dave?
10:58:28 <ynpvisitor95> I think you can pick 20
10:58:36 <Graham> guess i should clean up my list
10:58:47 <Graham> shouild add Dome to it
10:59:59 <Dave from GF> haha Kevin
11:00:17 <Dave from GF> I had to delete ledge
11:01:30 <Graham> i still have ledge on mine too
11:02:07 <Dave from GF> 20 is great. Thanks, GT
11:04:39 <Dave from GF> LC 1304ie
11:05:00 <ynpvisitor13> fast moving storm headed toward OF
11:35:33 <Graham> OF
12:01:37 <ynpvisitor30> Gazers: I see lots of unusual activity reported from Norris on GT this month. Did a disturbance take place out there? Just curious. Thanks.
12:02:46 <Graham> i think so
12:05:16 <Graham> of course part of it is there are more people reporting too
12:08:33 <ynpvisitor30> ok. I though it was unusual to happen so early in the season. Heading there with family in Sept. so I' hoping to be lucky enough to catch it then, thanks.
12:09:15 <Graham> they happen whenever they want to and can be highly variable
12:09:41 <ynpvisitor30> like most geysers...!
13:03:28 <Graham> OF
13:20:10 <ynpvisitor97> Castle ie
13:21:31 <Betty> good afternoon
13:21:39 <Graham> hi there
13:32:22 <Betty> nice to see so many in basin times from Micah
13:35:49 <Kevin ipad> Is he working there this year?
13:36:14 <Betty> hey Kevin
13:37:06 <Betty> I was wondering about that too
13:37:35 <ynpvisitor95> just visiting
13:37:53 <Betty> ah, ok. thanks
13:39:20 <Kevin ipad> Hi Betty.
13:40:16 <Betty> you are still in Rexburg?
13:41:30 <Kevin ipad> I am in Cedar City now.
13:42:04 <Kevin ipad> Got a $5000 haircut this morning.
13:42:14 <Betty> visiting all your relatives?
13:42:25 <Betty> Hä?
13:42:59 <Kevin ipad> Have 2 kids and a grandkids here.
13:43:51 <Betty> and why an haircut that expensive?
13:45:35 <Kevin ipad> Kid is going to cosmetology school. I figure that is what it has cost me so far.
13:46:11 <Betty> oh, haha
13:51:17 <David A pdx> Hej Betty!
13:51:45 <David A pdx> and everyone else too!
13:51:47 <Betty> hej David A pdx
13:52:14 <Kevin ipad> Hem to you too!
13:52:30 <David A pdx> we had a good morning this morning, starting with OF, the BH, then Lion right in a row!
13:52:36 <David A pdx> How're you doing Kevin?!
13:52:49 <Kevin ipad> Hem is apple speak for hej.
13:52:59 <Betty> lol
13:53:00 <David A pdx> LOL!
13:53:15 <Kevin ipad> A bit tired but surviving.
13:54:10 <Kevin ipad> It will be nice to have my own bed.
13:54:28 <David A pdx> trips are fun, but getting home is pretty good too
13:54:35 <Betty> when are you back?
13:55:10 <Kevin ipad> Tomorrow. Will be back on the am Monday.
13:55:54 <David A pdx> how are bugs/insects in the park this time of year?
13:57:32 <Kevin ipad> They ate my wife alive. If you take b complex vitamins around a month before you come they seem to leave you alone.
13:57:50 <Kevin ipad> I didn't have one bite.
13:57:58 <David A pdx> OK, i'll have to hurry up and get some.
13:58:01 <David A pdx> thanks
13:58:40 <Kevin ipad> I guess they don't like the smell. Strange but it seems to work.
13:59:23 <David A pdx> i've heard that before.
13:59:59 <David A pdx> does it help with the black/deer flies?
14:00:57 <David A pdx> Lion belching
14:01:14 <Kevin ipad> Flies were a bit bad bad not horrible.
14:01:32 <David A pdx> just bad bad, not horrible?!
14:02:01 <Betty> 2nd bad must be but I bet :-)
14:02:04 <Kevin ipad> but. I told you I was tired.
14:02:15 <David A pdx> LOL!
14:02:28 <David A pdx> looks like Sprinkler might be ie
14:02:53 <David A pdx> do you know if insects are worse in Lamar/Hayden valleys vs geyser basins?
14:02:54 <Betty> Lion
14:04:52 <Kevin ipad> Only place I went were the geyser basins.
14:05:51 <Kevin ipad> I would think Hayden would be worse.
14:06:21 <David A pdx> that's kinds what I'm afraid of...
14:06:43 <David A pdx> kinda
14:07:22 <Kevin ipad> Slower water would make more breeding grounds.
14:07:40 <David A pdx> and wet marshes.
14:07:51 <David A pdx> with animal poo mixed in?
14:08:27 <Kevin ipad> That always helps.
14:08:39 <David A pdx> Sprinkler! ie
14:13:36 <David A pdx> Is that Deleted Tea Kettle the cone to left of bridge steaming away?
14:14:20 <Graham> might be, hard to figure out what is steaming there
14:15:51 <David A pdx> description in Bryan, sounded right
14:16:14 <David A pdx> but it's always good to confirm with experts here!
14:16:15 <Graham> theres also scalloped springs there too
14:17:57 <David A pdx> ok.
14:22:00 <David A pdx> what about ticks in the park?
14:23:41 <Kevin ipad> I haven't ever had issues with them.
14:24:08 <David A pdx> good.
14:30:19 <Graham> Umbrellas out, thats not nice
14:33:50 <Graham> Riverside
14:33:52 <Betty> Riverside
14:41:53 <ynpvisitor95> No Fountain times today
14:43:10 <Graham> lots of potential watchers around today, not sure why its not been reported
14:43:24 <Graham> maybe it has stalled out and they are waiting for Morning :)
14:48:37 <Graham> OF
14:52:25 <Graham> Oblong?
14:56:20 <David A pdx> Sprinkler is active!
14:56:49 <Graham> none on GT so its not happened
15:00:11 <ynpvisitor95> David A pdx, you should study it real time when you are there
15:00:44 <Graham> during the 4h Grand waits
15:01:29 <ynpvisitor95> that's 6 + 4, right?
15:02:12 <David A pdx> what's that?
15:02:39 <David A pdx> Sprinkler? I do want to!
15:03:15 <Graham> well i am assuming he takes the 6h off
15:03:16 <David A pdx> I just wish I had more time in geyser basins while I was there... 3 days is not enough
15:03:19 <ynpvisitor95> I think that would be neat
15:03:45 <Graham> which 3 days?
15:04:01 <David A pdx> 22-24 June.
15:04:39 <Graham> k, will look for all the Sprinkler posts then
15:05:14 <David A pdx> LOL!
15:05:21 <David A pdx> and Pump!
15:06:11 <Graham> Sprinkler would be nore interesting, dont think we have good data on intervals and durations
15:08:37 <bIDDLE> caps lock... oops
15:09:07 <Betty> hi Biddle
15:09:21 <Biddle> Hi Betty
15:09:50 <ynpvisitor70> My horse won, my horse won!
15:10:01 <Biddle> cool
15:10:43 <ynpvisitor70> Kevin broke Daisy
15:10:46 <David A pdx> Probably won't be able to get too much good data, since I'm travelling with two other people, one of whom wants to see wolves...
15:11:28 <Betty> that´s not easy i think
15:12:11 <ynpvisitor70> Need those expensive long range binoculars, or a telescope.
15:12:45 <ynpvisitor70> Is that Daisy blowing sideways?
15:13:00 <Betty> no
15:14:09 <Kevin ipad> I didn't even make it that far!
15:14:45 <ynpvisitor70> See, it is depressed you did not go and visit.
15:15:00 <David A pdx> i will have a spotting scope with us, and binoculars.
15:15:34 <ynpvisitor70> Betty?
15:15:44 <Betty> yep
15:16:11 <ynpvisitor70> I thoughtyou would call lion, but it gave up
15:16:12 <Betty> button? too early
15:16:54 <Betty> a minor Lion, I think
15:18:19 <ynpvisitor70> Must have run out of steam with a short series?
15:18:55 <Graham> where did you stay on your trip Kevin?
15:20:01 <Betty> you can still watch Strokkur cam
15:20:17 <Kevin ipad> At the park the lodge cabins.
15:20:45 <Biddle> hey, the strokkur cam is up!
15:21:29 <Biddle> which one on the cam is strokkur? not used to the point of view
15:21:52 <Graham> its the one that erupts
15:22:01 <Biddle> ah, that one.. just saw that
15:24:27 <Betty> only dark for 3 hours there
15:24:27 <David A pdx> well, i'm signing off for now, but yep, I do plan on watching Sprinkler a bit when I'm there, and who knows, maybe I'll have them drop me off in UGB while they look for critters!
15:25:08 <Betty> bye David
15:25:09 <Graham> i sent my family on an evening wildlife drive down to the madison when i stayed in the basin
15:47:47 <Betty> time for sleep, night all

16:39:40 <Graham> Dep

17:16:13 <Graham> with the cloud it may get dark early, but we have a good chance for bee
17:17:18 <Biddle> big tall strokkur eruption just now
17:17:32 <Biddle> reched the top of the view of the cam
17:17:46 <Graham> nice
17:33:29 <Biddle> Grotto/msatiff
17:36:25 <Kevin ipad> No turban times
17:36:43 <Graham> slackers :)
17:37:26 <Kevin ipad> Either that or they are very smart
17:39:29 <Graham> Turban?
17:43:58 <ynpvisitor13685> 14 turbans in 1 sitting.....yuck
17:44:20 <Graham> it wasnt raining then tho
17:48:12 <Biddle> would a text be sent for a Geysir eruption?
17:48:42 <Graham> how long do they last?
17:49:05 <Graham> there was one last year or the year before
17:52:51 <Graham> OF
17:53:46 <Graham> those kids look happy
17:53:51 <Biddle> judging by the video from 1985 i saw, they last a while
17:54:11 <Biddle> i will find it
17:54:19 <Graham> k, then send a text when it erupts again :)
17:55:58 <Biddle> I do not have the ability to send a text
17:57:15 <Graham> nice video shows the mix of fountain and cone eruption
17:57:36 <Biddle> time for sleep, GT can take a break from receiving Strokkur logs.
17:57:51 <Graham> like Giantess steam phase
17:58:11 <Graham> I am sure someone in chat will get it out
18:17:52 <Graham> Turban

19:18:22 <ynpvisitor13685> So, is indy going?

19:19:36 <ynpvisitor13685> has to be close
19:21:00 <ynpvisitor72> nice Grand
19:21:00 <Michael> Just after the next OF would be a nice time for it.

19:23:25 <Kitt> cool
19:23:30 <Kitt> 2nd for Grand
19:23:49 <Michael> Didn't see that coming!
19:25:25 <ynpvisitor13685> Very severe weather in far eastern montana tonight
19:25:57 <Kitt> Old Faithful
19:26:17 <Kitt> 2125 wc
19:27:17 <Kitt> what kind of weather (hail or tornado?)
19:27:50 <ynpvisitor13685> tornado touched down in baker....not sure how big but I know at least one house is missing a roof
19:28:27 <Kitt> not good
19:29:42 <Kitt> Old Faithful is a long
19:36:38 <Kitt> someone is waiting for bee
19:37:06 <Kitt> Just don't know if I can stay awake
19:37:28 <ynpvisitor13685> I'm outta here...god luck!
19:37:52 <Kitt> left for Casper at 5 AM and did weed removal at parents' house for half a day then drove home
19:38:21 <Michael> That makes for a long day.
19:38:44 <Kitt> yes, and it was very hot
19:39:00 <Michael> Do you think OBlong is going now?
19:39:21 <Kitt> I don't know it could be or Turban and Vent
19:41:14 <Kitt> the interval is right
19:42:14 <Michael> I still can't tell. Everything is a little steamy.
19:47:45 <Kitt> either it was Oblong and Turban/Vent or just Turban /Vent because it is still going
19:48:19 <Kitt> did it rain in Yellowstone earlier?
19:49:56 <Michael> I wouldn't be surprised. It looksed like a storm exiting when I got here an hour ago.
19:49:57 <Kitt> bed is calling me, enjoy Beehive
19:53:18 <Michael> Now I'll bet Oblong is going.
19:54:35 <ynpvisitor41> Has bee wrupted?
19:55:13 <Michael> not yet.
19:55:32 <ynpvisitor41> ok I am going to go out late a try for it tonight, it's after work

20:04:49 <Art> Alone out here right now
20:05:17 <Kitt> someone just hurried by with a light on the boardwalk
20:06:20 <Kevin ipad> So this BH will be a work of Art?
20:06:26 <Kitt> no indy text
20:06:55 <Kevin ipad> I can't send off iPad.
20:06:58 <Michael> *groan*
20:08:13 <Michael> Groaning at the wordplay. Also a bummer about the text.
20:09:50 <Kitt> Well hopefully Art radioed in basin so someone can watch it
20:16:00 <Kitt> Beehive 2215wc
20:18:30 <Kitt> nice spikes off the top of bee
20:18:57 <Kitt> haven't see bee lit up on webcam
20:19:06 <Kitt> usually I have a light on it
20:19:24 <Kitt> now I see why they say to pan up and down so that all of bee is lit
20:19:52 <Kitt> looks like several people made it to bee
20:21:13 <Kitt> nice
20:21:18 <ynpvisitor76> great job on the lights out there...looks very striking.
20:21:21 <Kitt> glad I got back on computer
20:21:21 <Michael> Good show!
20:21:37 <Kitt> train is leaving the hill
20:22:44 <ynpvisitor69> Wow, just caught the end. Was trying to figure out how they were so close to OF. Then I realized it was bee.
20:22:56 <Kevin ipad> :)
20:23:12 <Kitt> night again
20:23:19 <Kitt> glad you made it Kevin
20:24:04 <Michael> Good night all.
