04:06:48 <ynpvisitor55> OF
05:07:14 <ynpvisitor92> Graham is doing a good job updating
05:11:05 <David A pdx> Good Morning all!
05:11:15 <Dave from B> Morning David
05:11:31 <David A pdx> beautiful morning in UGB!
05:12:17 <David A pdx> Sprinkler!! ie
05:29:14 <ynpvisitor47> Angles on according to Graham. Maybe we'll see F & M steam cloud shortly...
05:29:39 <David A pdx> Sprinkler slowly quieting down
05:33:11 <Dave from B> OF 0733ie
05:37:52 <David A pdx> Sprinkler should go soon...
05:38:30 <David A pdx> now that my neck is on the block...
05:39:45 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
05:39:56 <David A pdx> 27 min interval
05:48:39 <ynpvisitor92> I think we know where everyone is
05:48:55 <David A pdx> eating breakfast?
05:51:45 <Dave from B> eating rocks
05:52:02 <David A pdx> soaking in the sulfur fumes?
05:52:48 <ynpvisitor92> yep no F&7M
05:52:49 <ynpvisitor92> yep no F&M
05:56:34 <David A pdx> sprinkler quiet
05:56:54 <David A pdx> quieting
06:01:19 <David A pdx> Sprinkler appears quiet now
06:02:03 <David A pdx> should go in 2-5 min.
06:05:33 <David A pdx> hhmmm,
06:07:01 <David A pdx> Sprinkler seems to be ie.
06:07:41 <David A pdx> missed start
06:15:54 <Dave from B> It seems F&M isn't going this morning:(
06:18:12 <Dave from B> Morning Jenna
06:19:21 <Jenna> morning
06:21:40 <David A pdx> too bad it is getting warm in UGB... no steam!
06:30:10 <David A pdx> any idea what the bright flash on ridge line above Daisy area is?
06:31:08 <David A pdx> Sprinkler ie
06:31:18 <Dave from B> Sorry, David. I didn't see anything. What did it look like to you?
06:31:27 <David A pdx> just had my computer reset so don't know when it actually started.
06:31:28 <Jenna> like a white flash
06:31:47 <David A pdx> yep, like flash from mirror, or something.
06:31:55 <ynpvisitor57> David A pdx, I was wondering this also
06:32:03 <David A pdx> it's been happening fairly frequently
06:33:22 <David A pdx> there
06:35:12 <Dave from B> I believe there is a tower or something in that area. Maybe someone else on here will know for sure.
06:42:35 <David A pdx> sounds reasonable
06:48:28 <David A pdx> anyone else getting the evil circle this morning?
06:50:23 <Jenna> not yet
06:51:16 <ynpvisitor57> Sorry David, not yet here.
06:52:43 <Jimbo Barium> OK, appropriate for the upcoming 4th of July - what color in fireworks does barium produce? (Kudos if you know this without searching on the Web)
06:53:05 <David A pdx> blue?
06:53:17 <Jimbo Barium> Nope, that's copper
06:53:18 <ynpvisitor57> Blue?
06:53:44 <David A pdx> green
06:54:12 <Jimbo Barium> Yes, green.
06:54:33 <David A pdx> good guess!
06:54:57 <Biddle> Morning all
06:55:10 <Jimbo Barium> I actually thought both blue and green were different copper compounds
06:55:13 <David A pdx> Morning Biddle!
06:55:35 <ynpvisitor57> Thank-you Jimbo . Learning something new this AM.
07:05:55 <Biddle> 'morning Kevin
07:09:54 <ynpvisitor57> OF
07:18:12 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin, Biddle, Jimbo
07:18:37 <Jimbo Barium> Hello
07:21:24 <ynpvisitor83> red strontium salts, lithium salts lithium carbonate, Li2CO3 = red strontium carbonate, SrCO3 = bright red | orange calcium salts calcium chloride, CaCl2 | yellow sodium salts sodium chloride, NaCl | green barium compounds + chlorine producer barium chloride, BaCl2 | blue copper compounds + chlorine producer copper(I) chloride, CuCl
07:23:02 <ynpvisitor83> purple mixture of strontium (red) and copper (blue) compounds | silver burning aluminum, titanium, or magnesium
07:32:12 <kc (working)> daisy ie
07:36:48 <Kevin L> Will posted new lodge cabin info for next on the listserv. Going from 96 cabins to 161 cabins!
07:37:59 <Dave from B> Good news except that is 60 more cars in tight cabin area
07:39:02 <Kevin L> And the new cabins are farther back.
07:39:32 <Kevin L> They should have their own parking too.
07:40:18 <Kent> More people in the Basin overnight means more vandalism to the thermal features. I was told that when they closed the campground vandalism dropped 90%
07:40:36 <Dave from B> Morning Kent
07:40:45 <Kent> Morning Dave.
07:41:18 <Dave from B> 200 more people in the area at night doesn't excite me but it should help gazers out immensely
07:41:51 <ynpvisitor45> That is a strange stat Kent. Since the campground closed there have been a lot of hotel rooms added
07:42:18 <Dave from B> Do you know when these cabins are slated for demolition? I feel I read somewhere in next 20 years they will be replaced by Canyon style lodges. Was I just dreaming that?
07:42:38 <Kevin L> I sure hope not!
07:43:00 <Kevin L> Of course in 20 years it won't matter for me!
07:43:41 <ynpvisitor45> Lots of bus tours book cabins now
07:43:58 <Kent> I don't think the number of new rooms comes close to the loss from the campground and several hundred cabins being removed. All I know is what I was told in my Institute class.
07:44:25 <Kent> There were 400 or 500 cabins in the UGB
07:44:38 <Dave from B> The way I look at it.....more rooms means more cancellations at the last minute
07:44:47 <Kent> :)
07:45:08 <Jenna> front desk people would appreciate more lodges instead of cabins I can tell you that :)
07:46:08 <Dave from B> Harder to clean cabins as well
07:46:23 <ynpvisitor603> I'm glad to see more cabins being added
07:47:41 <ynpvisitor603> Cabins are one of the only affordable lodging options in the park
07:48:15 <ynpvisitor603> Even then they're almost $100 a night now with tax (w/ no bath)
07:49:51 <Dave from B> I know a few gazers aren't visiting as much because of higher cabin prices.
07:52:38 <ynpvisitor45> What about 18 hour BH last night? Turning back to its irregular self?
07:54:40 <Dave from B> Longest interval since May 5:(
07:55:20 <ynpvisitor45> Hopefully it will swing back
07:58:24 <Dave from B> Hopefully, a few will get a F&M, BH, Grand Day today
08:03:11 <ynpvisitor45> Or they could watch the rocks again all day...though Graham said his event cycle was a good one
08:06:58 <Betty> hello all
08:11:10 <Betty> Depression
08:11:52 <ynpvisitor45> Graham posted from Black Sand Basin, I guess he is figuring he had time before next event cycle
08:17:06 <Dave from B> How many minute walk to BSB from F&M...15 minutes?
08:19:01 <Betty> hi Dave
08:19:01 <ynpvisitor603> Just about
08:19:23 <ynpvisitor603> We were at BSB one year when we heard splashing in Main
08:19:35 <ynpvisitor603> and were able to get there in time for F&M
08:20:01 <Betty> cool
08:39:36 <Betty> OF ie
08:40:47 <Betty> Aurum
08:40:58 <ynpvisitor603> nice
08:41:00 <Betty> nice dual
08:53:51 <ynpvisitor40> Lion
08:54:06 <Eric> Morning All
08:54:08 <Betty> woot
08:54:13 <Biddle> Hi Eric
08:54:26 <Betty> morning Eric and Biddle
08:54:33 <Eric> End of a lion cycle?
08:54:38 <Eric> Morning Betty and Biddle :-D
08:55:09 <Eric> ohhh, this is ini
08:55:17 <Betty> :-p
08:55:41 <Jimbo Barium> Liking the falling water from this one
09:00:32 <Betty> hi Jake. Good timing
09:26:23 <Dave from B> Graham is aleready at Grand
09:27:41 <kc (working)> uncertain ie
09:27:55 <kc (working)> nice catch
09:28:08 <Jimbo Barium> Very clear view!
09:28:15 <Betty> great
09:28:25 <Betty> thanks vw :-)
09:29:16 <Betty> next event cycle is in gt
09:29:36 <Betty> or is it on GT?
09:29:50 <Betty> german mistake...
09:31:10 <kc (working)> sounds ok to me either way
09:31:28 <Betty> really?
09:31:37 <Betty> both is right?
09:32:20 <Betty> that is how it is in German, we can use both
09:32:36 <kc (working)> sounds synonymous to this guy
09:49:35 <Betty> both Anemones!
09:52:59 <kc (working)> shorter15hr interval from artemisia
09:56:49 <Dave from B> Another event cycle at F& eruption
09:57:29 <Dave from B> I think Steve O's name should be changed to Uncertain Steve O
09:57:47 <Betty> haha
09:58:06 <Dave from B> Or, that could be the name of his traveling Grill
10:07:52 <Betty> Daisy
10:08:19 <Betty> the end?
10:11:57 <Eric>
10:12:21 <Eric> LC
10:12:30 <Betty> ie
10:12:39 <Eric> anemone
10:13:26 <Eric> Anemone is very active toay
10:13:28 <Eric> today
10:14:42 <Eric> OF
10:33:38 <Eric> ugg, broken camera
10:34:01 <Betty> bah
10:34:24 <Eric> NPS and chat page are both down
10:34:58 <Dave from B> Who tripped over the cord?
10:35:03 <Betty> Graham blackened the cam :-)
11:00:19 <ynpvisitor17> It's Graham's fault !!
11:00:35 <Betty> sure it is!
11:01:06 <ynpvisitor17> He wants the basin all to himself
11:02:03 <Betty> did he close all entrances yet ;-) ?
11:02:24 <ynpvisitor17> So many gazers there, we will not miss any times
11:02:30 <Dave from B> You sure someone didn't cut the tree down?
11:02:45 <ynpvisitor17> West Gate is empty of cars, maybe he has!!!
11:02:48 <Betty> hopefully not!
11:07:50 <Betty> they stopped posting Turban times. Maybe all are at the rockpile
11:11:15 <Betty> Cam is back
11:11:19 <Betty> Lion ie
11:11:19 <Dave from B> Barely
11:11:33 <Dave from B> lost it again
11:11:54 <Betty> bah
11:13:54 <Betty> back
11:18:35 <ynpvisitor11> we are getting times - they must have a posting delay this time of day
11:19:23 <Betty> yes, maybe the internet was down
11:20:35 <Kevin L> If the cam was down internet was probably down too.
11:21:20 <ynpvisitor11> makes sense- does that affect the app too?
11:21:49 <Betty> think it does
11:22:09 <Kevin L> Should not affect the app but those in the basin would not be able to post to it.
11:22:13 <Betty> hey Kevin
11:22:17 <ynpvisitor11> or just bad cell signal
11:22:43 <Betty> that is what I meant, Kevin
11:24:36 <Betty> Turban?
11:24:55 <Betty> yep
11:27:06 <ynpvisitor17> Cam is on a T1 line, completely separate from cell tower
11:28:20 <ynpvisitor11> but - sometimes there is no cell signal due to congestion
11:28:43 <ynpvisitor17> Yes, just a different issue
11:29:22 <ynpvisitor17> SteveO and Graham seem to be able to post
11:29:40 <ynpvisitor11> this weekend should put it all to the test :P
11:30:16 <Betty> Dome ie
11:30:27 <ynpvisitor11> I happened to be looking at GT when some entries came in, about 10 minutes delayed
11:30:47 <ynpvisitor11> the time uploaded wasn't the time they actually came in to my screen
11:31:33 <Kevin L> Cell towers don't work too well without power.
11:31:55 <ynpvisitor17> They have power
11:32:11 <Betty> starts to rain
11:32:42 <ynpvisitor17> The uploaded time is the time it goes through to GT
11:33:00 <ynpvisitor17> Maybe a delay in our seeing it
11:33:33 <ynpvisitor11> maybe mine wasn't refreshing then - I saw Lion and others appear at 1318 and they were uploaded 1309-ish
11:34:40 <ynpvisitor17> Not sure what is up, yet the uploaded time is time they posted to GT
11:35:39 <ynpvisitor17> Will's Lion time did take 3 minutes to upload
11:39:58 <ynpvisitor17> Looks like hail with the rain
12:01:32 <Betty> OF near end
12:15:07 <Betty> Lion wheezes a bit
12:15:44 <Biddle> Of is ie off screen (probably)
12:16:13 <ynpvisitor30> OF was 1358
12:16:15 <Betty> no
12:17:01 <Biddle> im just seeing a load of steam from the right side and wondering.
12:18:37 <Eric> That is a lot of steam from OF
12:19:23 <ynpvisitor30> just that kind of day
12:19:26 <Betty> maybe the supervolcano starts to erupt
12:20:24 <ynpvisitor30> cam op betting on Lion over Grand
12:28:27 <Betty> LLC
12:28:41 <Betty> LLCC ;-)
12:44:18 <Dave from B> Still no F&M...grrrrr
12:45:04 <Betty> guess who is in lead, Dave...?
12:45:28 <Betty> 2 min to play
12:45:58 <Betty> Daisy
12:47:33 <ynpvisitor52> Maybe the weather is wreaking havoc on F&M
12:48:03 <Biddle> i will be back later
12:48:21 <Betty> later, Biddle
12:51:43 <Dave from B> So weather effetcs F&M similar to Daisy?
13:03:56 <Betty> LC ie
13:05:40 <Betty> Grand seems to be affected too. At 8:30 now
13:06:55 <Dave from B> Graham is sdoing a lot of sitting:(
13:23:33 <Betty> Grand
13:34:51 <Betty> OF
13:36:33 <ynpvisitor52> Nice OF
13:44:02 <Dave from B> Almost looks like snow at 67F
13:50:41 <ynpvisitor20> Graham will be soggy.
13:53:37 <ynpvisitor52> Now comes the BH or rock pile decision...
13:54:19 <Dave from B> or hiding in the bathroom
13:54:34 <Betty> haha
13:55:19 <Dave from B> Betty, I'm shocked by todays Euro outcome
13:55:21 <ynpvisitor11> that is a soaker
14:00:32 <Betty> It was a really good game, Dave. Not that Belgium was too weak. No, that had enough chances. But Wales played better, not with more luck
14:01:00 <Dave from B> Are you ready for tomorrow's game?
14:01:13 <Dave from B> Nice BH splash
14:01:22 <Betty> sure! :-)
14:09:12 <Betty> LC
14:12:41 <ynpvisitor94> cam may end up alerting about indy today
14:13:04 <ynpvisitor94> though last night's BH had no indy
14:13:35 <Dave from B> Thansk for mentioning that 94...didn't know
14:14:22 <Dave from B> I'm thinking we still have abount 90 minutes before BH
14:14:51 <Betty> Eric is here, it can go now
14:14:55 <Eric> Nice splash
14:14:58 <Eric> haha
14:15:11 <Eric> That looked like a 60 minute splash to me :-P
14:15:14 <Betty> waited for you
14:15:19 <ynpvisitor94> good splashing
14:15:29 <Eric> You can press the button now Betty.
14:15:55 <Dave from B> haha Eric
14:16:41 <ynpvisitor94> maybe it's an event cycle at F & M, strange there is not even one gazer at BH
14:17:08 <Eric> 7 days on F&M...I am sure the hype is high down on the rocks :-D
14:17:17 <Dave from B> Time for a sacrifice. Have a great evening everyone!
14:17:25 <Eric> Cya dave
14:17:28 <ynpvisitor94> at 14 1/2 hours
14:17:31 <Eric> Have a good 4th
14:17:39 <Betty> bye, Dave
14:17:43 <Dave from B> Thanks. you as well
14:18:03 <ynpvisitor94> is market closed on 4th?
14:18:17 <Dave from B> Open tomorrow. Closed Monday
14:18:42 <Dave from B> It has been the best week in the market since Valentines Week. Who says people don't eat seafood for the 4th?
14:19:01 <ynpvisitor94> nice, congrats
14:19:10 <Eric> It's your marketing skillz :-D
14:19:11 <Dave from B> Spending tomorrow night at Silver Gate with my 85 year old mom, wife and son.
14:19:32 <ynpvisitor94> I would guess the market is always open on Saturday
14:19:35 <Dave from B> My daughter is doing an awesome job!:)
14:19:55 <Betty> great :-)
14:20:00 <Dave from B> Yes. Last year we closed on Holiday Saturdays but not any longer
14:20:04 <Eric> Can you smell retirement now :-P
14:20:12 <Dave from B> 7 years to go!
14:20:19 <ynpvisitor94> have a good night Dave
14:20:25 <Dave from B> bye
14:20:59 <ynpvisitor40> Just don't promote a goldfish swallowing contest. The hotdog guys are gross enough.
14:22:23 <ynpvisitor94> BH finally has a gazer
14:44:04 <Betty> LC
15:22:25 <ynpvisitor40> Those two are ready.
15:25:25 <David A pdx> good afternoon!
15:26:20 <Betty> hi David
15:26:34 <David A pdx> how are you doing Betty?
15:26:51 <Betty> good, thanks
15:31:05 <Eric> Hey David
15:31:15 <Eric> I expect BHI any moment...
15:33:35 <ynpvisitor20> Hook your CO2 tank to it!
15:36:37 <David A pdx> Hey Eric!!
15:47:53 <ynpvisitor40> That is good for cone health.
15:51:30 <David A pdx> LC
15:52:14 <Eric> Good idea....nothing like a little CO2 to start the party :-D
15:58:30 <Eric> Nice water in BH for a minute
16:05:45 <David A pdx> In case anyone is interested I've just posted a video of the "New Feature" near Plume. It was taken 22 June:
16:07:21 <Eric> nice
16:07:55 <David A pdx> Thanks! Just about ready to start posting photos of BH from 22nd too!!
16:08:30 <David A pdx> I Have several videos of BH, but won't post them until I can figure out how to rotate them 90.
16:11:09 <Biddle> you can do that in Windows Movie Maker, i think
16:13:56 <David A pdx> Thanks!
16:14:15 <David A pdx> In the meantime here is another short video:
16:14:56 <Eric> BH lookin hot
16:16:17 <David A pdx> a watched pot doesn't boil...
16:16:21 <Eric> Well...gotta run. So enjoy a nice BH soon.
16:16:31 <David A pdx> Have a good one Eric
16:20:19 <ynpvisitor40> A watched boil doesn't erupt.
16:20:48 <David A pdx> does anyone want a boil to erupt?!
16:21:41 <ynpvisitor40> Not the kind on your behind.
16:23:27 <ynpvisitor20> That was a Herb Warren splash.
16:24:01 <David A pdx> LOL!
16:26:19 <David A pdx> Just posted photos of BHI from eruption of 22 Jun a.m.
16:35:41 <Biddle> I hate being on call. brb

16:51:04 <Biddle> well, im back now anyway, so it doesn't matter
16:51:34 <kcmule> leave the room for 1 min then come back, if it happens again
16:52:05 <David A pdx> that was short...
16:54:38 <David A pdx> decent splashing from BH
16:54:54 <kcmule> nice
16:54:57 <Betty> indy
16:55:01 <David A pdx> BHI

16:55:32 <Biddle> time for kevin to wake up
16:55:42 <Betty> even saw it steaming before it started
16:55:42 <David A pdx> LOL!
16:55:53 <David A pdx> that was pretty cool!
16:55:59 <David A pdx> thanks for txt.
16:57:42 <ynpvisitor20> Kevin is probably watching grown men crashing expensive cars.
17:00:03 <ynpvisitor87> nice that indy showed up
17:00:29 <ynpvisitor40> Or expensive men crashing grown cars.
17:01:06 <David A pdx> LC
17:01:19 <ynpvisitor87> F & M must not be happening as the gazers are there
17:07:52 <Biddle> BH
17:07:57 <Biddle> I am way delayed
17:08:02 <David A pdx> Sweet!
17:11:32 <David A pdx> lighting has been spectacular on this one.
17:13:07 <ynpvisitor87> no showers for folks today, or rainbows, yet so nice and tall
17:13:43 <ynpvisitor87> back to F & M they will go
17:14:48 <ynpvisitor87> this would be a beautiful time of day for F & M
17:15:41 <David A pdx> I guess I missed the start of Sprinkler
17:21:27 <ynpvisitor87> Graham will keep you up to date on Sprinkler this weekend
17:22:27 <David A pdx> cool! it would be great to compare his notes w/ cam visuals
17:34:21 <David A pdx> notice how small the steam plume is from sprinkler when compared with 1915.
17:38:20 <David A pdx> we may see a strong steam plume from Sprinkler in a few minutes. maybe.
17:38:55 <Biddle> you take your sprinklers seriously!
17:39:14 <David A pdx> LOL!
17:40:40 <David A pdx> there it goes!
17:41:01 <David A pdx> on schedule!
17:41:11 <ynpvisitor20> River Vent pause
17:53:38 <ynpvisitor11> 7 days- let's hope this is it
