22:40:29 <Michael> Grand
22:41:48 <Betty> Hi Michael.
22:42:16 <Betty> Good timing for me
22:42:27 <Michael> Hi Betty.
22:50:28 <Betty> OF
22:51:43 <Michael> Do you think you can convince Beehive to erupt next?
22:53:53 <Betty> Hopefully I can :-)
22:54:55 <Betty> Nice moonlight tonight
22:55:29 <Michael> It really is. If the weather wasn't this nice, I would have given up a while ago.
23:15:09 <Betty> Someone is out at Bee. Maybe Kitt or Will
23:17:44 <Michael> That flashlight beam might be for Indicator.
23:18:04 <ynpvisitor49> :)
23:18:18 <Betty> Yes, indy is ie
23:19:53 <Michael> Now we know Kitt is there.
23:20:04 <Betty> Yup
23:32:06 <Michael> Here we go!
23:40:16 <Michael> Lion
23:42:19 <Betty> Seems as big as Beehive
23:43:56 <Michael> I can't stay awake much longer. Good night everyone!
23:44:49 <Betty> Goodnight Michael. Time for some errands
23:45:02 <Betty> Bbl

05:06:28 <David A pdx> taking it's time
05:10:10 <Graham> Giantess is now on its logest interval in the last 100 :(
05:10:36 <David A pdx> waiting until the 22nd!
05:13:07 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
05:13:51 <Graham> good luck with that
05:14:53 <David A pdx> yeah! with the strong steaming there was some pulses
05:23:04 <David A pdx> i've got to get going. have fun watching!
05:32:02 <ynpvisitor89> grrrrand

09:43:57 <ynpvisitor51> OF 1143
09:44:35 <ynpvisitor52> OF
09:57:33 <Biddle Mobile> man, this site is hard to navigate on a tiny phone
10:02:22 <Biddle Mobile> I give up. Enjoy OF and Castle.
10:57:58 <Betty> Daisy
10:58:28 <Kevin L> :)
10:58:32 <Betty> I´m here for my next BH
10:58:40 <Betty> hi Kevin
10:58:43 <Kevin L> You did good last night!
10:59:07 <Betty> :-D
11:24:28 <Betty> OF
11:29:20 <Betty> call that a crowd!
11:34:34 <Graham> nice weather, fthers day, and more schools out
11:34:58 <Graham> and Giantess is due
11:34:58 <Betty> hi Graham
11:35:06 <Betty> ;-)
11:39:16 <Graham> hello. interesting we have all 100 OF eruptions on GT, do double intervals
11:39:29 <Graham> no doubles
11:49:38 <ynpvisitor14> Lots of service dogs this year.
11:56:38 <Betty> hi Biddle
11:56:51 <Biddle> Hi Betty
11:59:26 <Betty> ohoh
11:59:45 <Biddle> aw shucks
11:59:55 <ynpvisitor14> X marks the spot
11:59:57 <Betty> black screen and white cross
12:00:41 <ynpvisitor14> maybe the NPS has gone pay-per-view
12:03:07 <Betty> I have the annual pass. Does that count?
12:03:51 <Betty> looks like. It´s back
12:04:13 <ynpvisitor14> Dang, it is back, just when I found a X song on the tube.
12:04:58 <Biddle> they probably reset their router
12:08:42 <ynpvisitor18> hello everyone
12:08:53 <Biddle> Hi DGInc
12:09:01 <DGInc> hi Biddle
12:09:33 <DGInc> hmm... the Strokkur cam is wet and zoomed out...
12:10:42 <DGInc> looks like it's raining over there
12:11:34 <Betty> hey DGInc
12:11:41 <DGInc> hi Betty
12:13:29 <ynpvisitor14> Odd, almost 7 hours and no one is talking about grand. I do not like it's new personality.
12:14:04 <DGInc> it became normal
12:14:14 <DGInc> but still
12:17:52 <ynpvisitor14> Has OF become normal also?
12:18:15 <DGInc> erupting regularly? yes
12:18:29 <DGInc> i think so
12:18:37 <ynpvisitor14> It has not been very regular.
12:19:26 <DGInc> short eruption? can happen, nothing to really worry about if it happens sometimes
12:20:54 <ynpvisitor14> Just been all over the map lately. From less then an hour to 2 hours. Looking more like daisy then of.
12:22:12 <DGInc> maybe influenced by the 4.3 Richter scale earthquake a few days ago?
12:22:41 <Betty> I will start to wonder when OF erupts in an angle ;-)
12:23:25 <ynpvisitor14> I think Kevin did something when he was there. Or it is all the buses and people causing a global shift.
12:23:33 <DGInc> haha
12:23:54 <ynpvisitor14> Anyone tracking the vec predictions?
12:23:55 <Betty> yes! it is Kevin´s fault! :-D
12:24:38 <DGInc> I have currently the GT & NPS predictions on a tab
12:25:18 <ynpvisitor14> Has the Vec been close?
12:26:22 <DGInc> no, the static cam still makes pictures
12:26:47 <ynpvisitor14> ?
12:28:15 <DGInc> the VEC still predicts OF, so I think it's not closed
12:28:38 <ynpvisitor14> Are the predictions close?
12:28:54 <ynpvisitor14> not closed
12:29:06 <DGInc> oh... you mean it that way... :P
12:30:03 <DGInc> I'm sometimes such an idiot, haha
12:30:20 <DGInc> but to be honest, I don't know
12:30:51 <ynpvisitor14> Hard to track, as i do not think anyone records the predictions
12:31:44 <DGInc> but usually the predictions are also in the predictions tab of GT
12:32:41 <DGInc> currently OF is predicted between 1448 and 1508
12:33:43 <ynpvisitor14> I guess GT could track the predictions, and may, however it is not listed.
12:34:17 <DGInc> maybe we could use the API of GT to track it
12:34:26 <ynpvisitor14> I have got to go work outside. enjoy BH.
12:34:46 <Betty> bye
12:34:56 <DGInc> bye 14
12:42:01 <DGInc> guess I won't be able to see a Beehive today because of the almost 17-hour interval it has currently...
12:42:35 <Biddle> its due for a short one
12:42:45 <Biddle> you know, 14hrs
12:42:49 <DGInc> hopefully
12:43:46 <DGInc> let's not be pessimistic about the interval of Beehive, let's hope for some surprises!
12:45:48 <Biddle> grand shouyld have a 5 burst eruption today too
12:46:05 <Biddle> STeamboat will have a major, and ledge will erupt
12:46:07 <DGInc> agreed 200%
12:46:25 <DGInc> let's not forget Giantess and Giant
12:46:52 <DGInc> also an earthquake will wake up Stóri Geysir
12:51:21 <Betty> OF
12:51:23 <DGInc> OF
12:55:36 <DGInc> gtg, bye
12:55:45 <DGInc> nice view btw
12:56:04 <Betty> bye, DG
12:56:30 <Biddle> bye
12:56:44 <Biddle> ah, my internet delay made me too late :(

13:28:43 <ynpvisitor91> Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
13:35:48 <ynpvisitor53> long hot sit at Grand this afternoon
13:37:41 <David A pdx> where's all the steam?!?! LOL
13:37:42 <ynpvisitor91> 73 is hot?
13:38:11 <David A pdx> i used to think 73 hot - when I was growing up on coast of Northern California...
13:38:12 <ynpvisitor53> it is at Grand
13:38:29 <ynpvisitor53> no shade
13:39:00 <David A pdx> good afternoon all!!
13:39:58 <ynpvisitor91> Is 73 no shade hot David?
13:40:59 <ynpvisitor40> 73 is pretty hot at that elevation
13:41:00 <David A pdx> well, when 65 is a normal high for coastal Humboldt Co., CA, then anything over 70 is pretty darn warm. 80 is horrible!
13:43:03 <ynpvisitor91> Hot is when your owns are in the 90s.
13:43:47 <ynpvisitor91> lows
13:44:40 <ynpvisitor40> well you can stay where that is, too hot for me
13:45:28 <ynpvisitor91> But there is no chance of snow.
13:45:43 <ynpvisitor16> Castle ie
13:45:53 <David A pdx> well, i've got errands to do. bbl
13:46:05 <Betty> hi David A pdx

13:55:48 <ynpvisitor53> thanks for text
13:55:58 <ynpvisitor91> That should make the Grand crowd happy. :(
13:55:58 <Betty> yw
13:56:17 <Betty> yes, bad timing for them :-(
13:57:36 <Betty> Udo had 1548 for BHI
13:58:01 <Betty> hi Kent
13:58:50 <Kent> Hey Betty
14:02:59 <Betty> hmm, camop must not be a fan of BH
14:03:16 <Kent> :)
14:03:41 <ynpvisitor91> I don't understand this.
14:04:01 <Betty> Grand is due too
14:04:22 <Kent> Both in view perhaps?
14:04:23 <Betty> but with a wide pan we could get both
14:04:31 <ynpvisitor57> If we miss BH for nothing, i'm gonna be upset lol
14:04:34 <ynpvisitor91> Hope we don't miss bh
14:04:46 <Betty> hehe, 57
14:05:25 <ynpvisitor16> ah, the suspense :)
14:05:35 <Betty> and Daisy is due too
14:06:13 <Kent> Now if we only had static cam :)
14:06:20 <ynpvisitor53> BH is the best cam choice for sure
14:06:25 <ynpvisitor53> Grand is behind trees
14:06:52 <ynpvisitor53> I wonder if cam op is aware that BHI is going
14:07:07 <Betty> oh, thanks
14:07:17 <Betty> just in time
14:07:22 <ynpvisitor57> Perfect timing! Thanks cam op!
14:07:31 <ynpvisitor40> BH per GT
14:07:34 <Betty> runners
14:08:24 <ynpvisitor53> tis extremely windy today
14:11:14 <ynpvisitor16> free showers today
14:13:12 <Betty> that was nice
14:13:21 <Betty> my 2nd for today
14:13:56 <ynpvisitor16> great show
14:14:19 <ynpvisitor91> Now the race to Grand.
14:16:45 <ynpvisitor40> just saw the note on thing by Plume- no water visible
14:18:03 <ynpvisitor40> how long does it take from Grand to BH- anyone ever time it?
14:19:12 <Betty> if forced to I´d say a runner can do it in 5 min
14:19:57 <Betty> normally 10 to 15 min
14:20:25 <Betty> I think - never took a time
14:31:56 <ynpvisitor40> ..
14:35:17 <Betty> OF
14:36:48 <David A pdx> good afternoon again!
14:37:04 <David A pdx> did I miss the alert on BHI?
14:37:14 <Betty> yes
14:37:36 <Betty> and right after you left we got Aurum
14:37:50 <Betty> only short
14:37:50 <David A pdx> i see it went off, but didn't get a txt alert.
14:37:57 <David A pdx> darn. missed both. ugh.
14:38:29 <David A pdx> just like the message on the postcard I posted on fb the other day...
14:41:04 <Betty> Grand
14:41:25 <Betty> at least you get this one :-)
14:41:43 <David A pdx> yep!!
14:42:06 <David A pdx> i'd like to see it in person on Wed.
14:42:26 <Betty> bet you will
14:44:02 <David A pdx> i'm hoping!!
14:44:18 <David A pdx> and daisy!
14:44:55 <Betty> so you are in UGB only on wed?
14:45:18 <David A pdx> and Giant(ess)!!
14:46:19 <David A pdx> but i'd settle for Lion.
14:50:07 <David A pdx> nice Grand this afternoon!
14:51:50 <David A pdx> probably.
14:52:09 <David A pdx> other two days will include Norris, and Lamar & Hayden Valley.
14:52:37 <David A pdx> one of the people has a priority of animals over geyers...
14:53:07 <David A pdx> I think it's cool we'll spend the summer solstice evening at OF!
15:00:01 <ynpvisitor40> ..
15:00:46 <ynpvisitor40> tell them geysers are best David A pdx, you don't drive around and get caught in the jams
15:01:22 <David A pdx> LOL!
15:01:29 <David A pdx> I know!!
15:01:58 <ynpvisitor40> "See Yellowstone at 3mph"
15:02:06 <Betty> tell them about a bear sighting in UGB
15:02:14 <David A pdx> I'm glad to have gotten room for firs two nights at OFI
15:03:03 <David A pdx> the other is interested in geyser, since they both have not seen one.
15:03:22 <David A pdx> 20% are right there!
15:04:25 <David A pdx> since this is only my 3rd trip to YNP, I'll take what I can get.
15:04:41 <David A pdx> it'll leave me frustrated and wanting more, I'm sure!!
15:06:51 <David A pdx> not much going on at Sprinkler.
15:07:02 <ynpvisitor40> take notes to plan the next trip :D :D :D
15:07:19 <David A pdx> OH, I am!! you can count on it.
15:07:37 <David A pdx> i've got photos from my last trip printed and want to get comparison shots of the same features.
15:07:52 <ynpvisitor40> great idea
15:08:09 <David A pdx> they'll be post on flickr eventually.
15:08:12 <Biddle> will be taking my 4th trip as soon is i possibly can
15:08:21 <David A pdx> nice Biddle!
15:09:09 <David A pdx> now Sprinkler is acting up!
15:09:24 <Biddle> 3rd trip was last year. i was going to this year, but my sister insisted on having a wedding!
15:09:53 <David A pdx> and you didn't go to YNP?!
15:10:01 <David A pdx> LOL
15:10:34 <Biddle> My parents insisted that I attend her wedding. I would rather have been in the park
15:10:47 <Biddle> OOH she should have had her wedding in the park
15:10:55 <Biddle> I have to run. bbl
15:11:00 <David A pdx> later!
15:17:34 <Kevin iPad> Did I miss anything?
15:18:30 <Betty> only the usual things
15:18:44 <David A pdx> tourists on bw
15:22:14 <Kevin iPad> As long as it wasn't something like a 93 m OF interval.
15:27:02 <David A pdx> I was talking with someone today who was in the park in May. apparently there were several bus loads of non-English speaking tourists.
15:27:10 <David A pdx> the wind blew their hats off
15:27:27 <David A pdx> and they started running after their hats - on the features...
15:32:58 <Kevin iPad> Daisy
15:33:29 <Graham> 4h35m interval
15:35:15 <David A pdx> Sprinkler being very vigorous too!
15:41:30 <ynpvisitor40> what is up with Daisy? wind?
15:42:27 <Kevin iPad> Budget cuts. All geysers are moving to longer intervals.
15:47:01 <Betty> time for sleep. Night all
15:47:13 <David A pdx> later Betty!
15:47:20 <Biddle afk> 'night
15:47:34 <David A pdx> Good one Kevin!
15:50:21 <Kevin iPad> Not sure if it is the heat or the sawdust getting to me.
15:51:39 <Biddle> wow, the yellowstone budget cuts are like a dilbert nightmare
15:55:52 <David A pdx> starve the beast
15:56:45 <David A pdx> anyone have any idea where Fair Geyser, on the Firehold River is? or, what it is called today?
15:57:48 <Kevin iPad> They could thin the bison herds and sell the meat.
16:01:42 <David A pdx> Sprinkler is apparently fountaining pretty strongly again
16:02:40 <Biddle> They must have cut Giantess's funding and stuck it to sprinkler and F&M
16:03:06 <David A pdx> uh huh
16:04:19 <Biddle> ERconomic is also heading up
16:04:29 <Biddle> *economic
16:04:55 <David A pdx> well, i'm signing off for now. have a good evening!
16:05:05 <Biddle> 'night
