22:14:25 <ynpvisitor41> grand?
22:41:27 <ynpvisitor41> lion
05:03:52 <Jmbo Bismuth> Pretty!
05:05:12 <Jmbo Bismuth> Bismuth is a pnictogen, a word I just learned a minute ago
05:36:19 <ynpvisitor59> Anyone notice the last Old Faithful?
05:40:06 <Mike J> Okay Jimbo, you actually caused me to look up a word.
05:40:18 <Mike J> And pretty indeed
05:40:23 <Jmbo Bismuth> I had to look it up too
05:41:44 <Mike J> Not sure how I'll work it into today's conversations, though.
05:42:10 <Jmbo Bismuth> You can use it when discussing nitrogen
05:42:32 <Mike J> If I were to say "Jmbo was a pnictogen today",..well, people are already a little worried about me.
05:43:23 <Jmbo Bismuth> You can tell them it
05:43:29 <Jmbo Bismuth> it's none of their bismuth
06:19:46 <Mike J> Jmbo. Just saw the reply. A most excellent statement that I will find some way to use.
06:21:17 <Jmbo Bismuth> I'm sure it will come in handy
06:21:53 <Jmbo Bismuth> It is a very quiet morning, geyser-wise
06:41:18 <Kevin L> This looks much better
06:49:37 <ynpvisitor97> Old Faithful
06:49:44 <ynpvisitor97> Aurum?
06:49:56 <ynpvisitor97> we'll never know now
06:51:51 <Kevin L> :9
06:51:57 <ynpvisitor97> it was Aurum!
06:52:17 <Kevin L> It likes to do that. Hope someone is up there.
06:53:14 <Kevin L> Nice and a bummer at the same time.
06:56:58 <ynpvisitor97> might could look for another at 4-5 hours
06:59:25 <Kevin L> It will be interesting to see if has shorter intervals now.
07:55:45 <Kevin L> Morning Jenna
07:56:16 <Jenna> morning Kevin
07:56:20 <Jenna> Daisy?
07:56:31 <Jmbo Bismuth> I think so
07:56:36 <Kevin L> It would appear so.
08:01:11 <Kevin L> Maybe we will even see BH. I sure hope that was a double interval last night.
08:28:30 <Kevin L> Lot of customers at the west gate.
08:39:26 <ynpvisitor41> Cousin they closed the road from Mammoth.
08:40:11 <Kevin L> North entrance is way backed up too.
08:43:22 <ynpvisitor41> Also closed from Tetons.
09:17:49 <Jmbo Bismuth> While it's slow, check out the Kilauea Webcam:
09:18:49 <Jmbo Bismuth> Not sure why that didn't link.
09:19:16 <Jmbo Bismuth> Argh. It's here:
09:33:29 <Eric> It's beginning to look a lot like winter :-D
09:33:57 <Kevin L> Should have seen it yesterday.
09:35:53 <Eric> Hi Kevin
09:37:22 <Casey> I can see geysers today!
09:37:31 <Kevin L> :)
09:37:47 <Kevin L> I caught BH last night
09:39:28 <Casey> I saw that. I came to this site about an hour later and the comments were still up. Lets hope that it was a double interval.
09:40:23 <Kevin L> It was strange you could see more at midnight than during the day!
09:41:33 <Casey> Yeah. I actually was able to identify even Grand steam last night. I posted it with a '?' just to be safe, but DaveM later confirmed it with his video captures.
09:43:11 <Kevin L> I am going to miss the lit up eruptions.
09:46:50 <Jake> I have little confidence in the Beehive prediction today. I don't know what to think about it.
09:47:08 <Jake> I'd go with 17 - 21 hours over 14 -18 though
09:47:19 <ynpvisitor6> If you erupt it, they will come.
09:54:51 <Kevin L> This is going to be a real fuzzball.
09:56:45 <Casey> Why 17-21 hours Jake? There have been very few 17+ hr intervals of late. Is that based on yesterdays behavior, information about the affects of winter weather, or just a hunch?
09:57:09 <Kevin L> Poof!
09:58:44 <ynpvisitor24> Lion ie behind OF
09:58:45 <Kevin L> Is Lion ie?
09:59:11 <Casey> It certainly appears to be. Some wind to the east would help.
09:59:18 <ynpvisitor24> it IS
09:59:31 <Jmbo Bismuth> Man, OF is in upstaging mode
09:59:38 <Kevin L> OF likes to hide things today.
09:59:42 <Jmbo Bismuth> But she is the main diva
10:00:07 <ynpvisitor24> nothing else would make that plume
10:00:27 <ynpvisitor6> Except BH
10:00:39 <ynpvisitor24> except it was NOT BH
10:01:14 <Jake> BH
10:01:19 <Jake> ie ?
10:01:23 <Jake> Lion
10:01:25 <Jake> something
10:01:28 <Jake> nothing
10:02:11 <ynpvisitor24> Lion was ie during the OF eruption
10:02:40 <Jake> Casey, I'm thinking 27 hours was a single due to the weather
10:02:43 <ynpvisitor24> GT confirms it
10:03:09 <Kevin L> I am going to miss in field reports.
10:03:16 <ynpvisitor24> gazers are there
10:03:28 <ynpvisitor24> you have a few weeks of them left
10:03:52 <Casey> We nominate you to spend the whole winter there for us, Kevin.
10:04:11 <ynpvisitor24> snow causes cancer, right Kevin?
10:04:11 <Kevin L> Snow causes cancer!
10:04:39 <ynpvisitor24> Will would be my choice
10:05:37 <Jake> if Kevin went, we'd get fewer reports than him on the webcam. He'd just sit inside the VEC all day and ask them to turn the thermostat up to 95
10:05:48 <Kevin L> I would last about 15m up there in the winter.
10:06:37 <ynpvisitor24> Graham would do it too
10:08:23 <ynpvisitor36> I agree about BH, two 13h intervals in the snow is very unlikely
10:09:20 <ynpvisitor36> and it was splashing at 1030
10:09:25 <ynpvisitor24> people were watching it all day yesterday
10:09:53 <ynpvisitor24> we could not see it on the cam, yet there were folks in the basin hoping...
10:14:22 <Kitt> Hello
10:14:32 <Casey> I think you're overstating the certainty of that, 24. I was watching as well, and it was horrific visibility. We could have missed it. Also, the only GT notes indicate gazers started observing 15.5 hours after the prior eruption.
10:14:34 <BenVL> hi
10:14:38 <Kitt> looks a bit chilly in the basin
10:15:14 <Casey> Not saying it erupted (in fact I'm leaning toward the long single interval as well), but that's far from certain based on what I've seen and read.
10:15:14 <ynpvisitor6> SNow fun out there.
10:15:18 <Casey> Hi Kitt.
10:16:12 <Kitt> I leave the basin and bee acts up
10:16:25 <Kevin L> Kitt broke it.
10:17:11 <Jake> if Beehive was splashing at that 15.5 hr mark, it either had to have erupted at a <10 hour interval or not yet erupted
10:17:27 <Kitt> my last beehive, bee started at 0407, water cam up in the indicator at 0408, indy at 9409
10:18:01 <Kevin L> 9409? Star date?
10:18:20 <Kitt> -409
10:18:22 <Casey> Good point Jake. I just now noticed the GT comment mentioned splashing.
10:18:33 <Kitt> 0409
10:18:41 <Kitt> annoying computer
10:19:01 <Kevin L> You have a Dave keyboard too.
10:19:17 <Kevin L> I really hate this new keyboard. Needs tannerite.
10:19:28 <Kitt> no room was too dark
10:19:32 <Kitt> it is rainy here
10:19:56 <Kitt> bee worked just fine for me
10:20:15 <Kitt> I was there from Sep. 1 to 11 (am_)
10:20:39 <Casey> Can you go back please?
10:20:47 <Kitt> I saw every beehive eruption except the early morning one on the 2nd
10:21:40 <Kitt> most of them I was on boardwalk at bee for water in indy
10:22:07 <Casey> Do we have any data to back up the weather affects on BH, or is it just common knowledge?
10:22:07 <Kitt> I did watch the one on the 10th from the overlook
10:23:14 <Kitt> often the daytime eruption had the longer interval instead of the nighttime eruption
10:24:16 <Kitt> and the 18 hour 5 min. interval we left for an event cycle at F & M watched the whole cycle then returned to bee to wait some more
10:25:24 <Casey> I'm starting to believe BH really does work around your schedule, Kitt.
10:27:01 <ynpvisitor6> People wait for geysers, Geysers don't wait for people.
10:29:51 <Kitt> I know that #6 but it was still nice to walk up to Bee for my final eruption in the dark and have Beehive start immediately
10:38:00 <Casey> I have to leave. I hope BH restores our faith today. I'll be back later if it ends up being another long interval.
10:38:12 <Kevin L> bye
10:42:57 <Kitt> Daisy
10:43:03 <Kitt> ie
10:43:34 <Kitt> 1242 ie wc
10:46:03 <Kitt> bbl
10:48:53 <Jake> bbl me 2
11:16:14 <ynpvisitor25> wow Grand already
11:16:26 <Kevin L> Just spotted it.
11:16:40 <Kevin L> 1311 per GT
11:18:14 <Kevin L> Coming into OF window.
11:20:09 <ynpvisitor6> Another translucent window that can't be seen through.
11:27:14 <ynpvisitor25> what a cold mess there, I feel for any gazers that are only there these past days
11:30:29 <Kevin L> Sure hope OF does not slime the cam.
11:32:44 <Kevin L> Washburn cams look great today.
11:39:32 <Kevin L> Poof!
11:52:40 <ynpvisitor25> cold wait at BH
11:53:14 <ynpvisitor25> they could end up there all day again without any eruption
12:15:17 <ynpvisitor25> nice splash there
12:17:05 <ynpvisitor25> A song comes to mind...The Fool on the Hill...
12:20:16 <Kevin L> I think they will get it today. Lion is there to entertain them anyway.
12:20:57 <ynpvisitor25> I agree it will go before midnight...
12:21:08 <Kevin L> :)
12:21:48 <Kevin L> If Aurum moves to Winter mode they may catch that.
12:22:15 <ynpvisitor25> I am guessing Jim got the last one from his van
12:23:28 <Kevin L> Not sure he got it. Positive time was posted by DaveM and Will and I got it ie on the cam live.
12:25:43 <ynpvisitor25> the time posted on GT is his
12:26:03 <ynpvisitor25> with no other entries
12:29:44 <Kevin L> OK, I was thinking BH not Aurum. You are probably right on that one.
12:31:43 <Kevin L> Could have been frs call too.
12:32:36 <ynpvisitor25> he usually puts in FRS if it is
12:32:48 <ynpvisitor25> I wonder how long he will stay
12:33:05 <Kevin L> I will sure miss him.
12:33:38 <ynpvisitor25> yes, quite an asset to us cam gazers
12:39:44 <Casey> People on the boardwalk still have faith in BH.
12:41:22 <ynpvisitor25> I wish Lion would keep gping
12:41:28 <ynpvisitor25> or going
12:43:31 <Casey> 1h 40m would long interval in the middle of a Lion series.
12:43:40 <ynpvisitor25> yes
12:43:49 <Casey> I'd take it right now though
12:46:26 <Casey> I'll console myself the way I normally do... hoping all the water is being diverted toward Giantess.
12:46:54 <ynpvisitor25> funny
12:47:09 <Casey> One of these days I'll be right.
12:47:18 <ynpvisitor6> More likely 10000 LC's
12:47:48 <Casey> Sad... but probably true, 6
13:02:55 <Kevin L> Ding
13:02:56 <ynpvisitor6> BHI
13:02:57 <Kevin L> .
13:02:58 <Kevin L> .
13:02:59 <Kevin L> .
13:03:00 <Kevin L> .
13:03:00 <Kevin L> .
13:03:46 <Jake> I'm happy to be wrong :D
13:04:12 <Jake> very happy for the hypothermic patient people on the hill
13:04:45 <Casey> Yay
13:05:04 <Kitt> yay indy
13:05:26 <ynpvisitor25> we will only see fuzz, yet hopefully the hill people will see more
13:05:34 <Casey> See. It really is waiting for Kitt.
13:06:06 <ynpvisitor25> pretty sure Kitt was just waiting for the text Casey
13:06:46 <Casey> I'm sure you're right 25. I was actually just writing a post saying I was choosing to ignore that probability.
13:07:12 <Casey> You really take the fun out of confirmation bias
13:07:16 <Kitt> actually I got on chat at 1452
13:07:40 <Casey> Thanks Kitt. And the evidence keeps mounting.
13:07:47 <Kitt> so I had to wait 10 minutes
13:08:44 <Kitt> now if we all blow at the same time, maybe we will get to see bee
13:09:01 <ynpvisitor25> ha
13:10:13 <Kitt> now if fluffy will wait
13:10:34 <ynpvisitor25> just BHI is creatnig fuzz
13:11:00 <Casey> I don't even care today. I'm just glad it seems to be cooperating.
13:12:21 <Kevin L> Fluffy has been hiding geysers all day today.
13:17:28 <Kitt> uh oh
13:17:30 <Kitt> fluffy
13:17:53 <Kevin L> Hope it is a short.
13:18:10 <Kitt> hoping for a wind shift
13:18:12 <ynpvisitor25> poor people at OF
13:18:23 <Casey> 16 minutes into Indy. Bad time for OF.
13:18:29 <ynpvisitor25> I drove to OF and all I saw was STEAM
13:18:30 <Kevin L> Hope it doesn't slime the cam.
13:19:29 <Casey> I hope that's not anybody's first OF. That's would be incredibly disappointing.
13:19:52 <Kevin L> Looks like it may be a short.
13:19:55 <Kitt> Riverside
13:20:47 <Kevin L> Nope, still going.
13:21:33 <Casey> Riverside was ie 1505 apparently.. right after Indy caught out attention.
13:22:01 <Casey> I must have Dave typing for me today.
13:22:16 <ynpvisitor25> where is Dave?
13:22:22 <Kevin L> BH is ie
13:22:23 <Kitt> Beehive
13:22:24 <Casey> Do I see BH?
13:22:34 <Casey> I guess so
13:22:38 <Kitt> everyone blow
13:22:49 <ynpvisitor25> poof
13:23:02 <ynpvisitor25> one poof, two poof
13:23:18 <Kevin L> More like pooh
13:23:28 <x2> what a waste of time
13:23:53 <Casey> I'm just glad it's back on schedule.
13:24:11 <ynpvisitor25> from here on out, there is no schedule
13:24:30 <ynpvisitor25> look at some old GT posts
13:24:56 <Kitt> nice and tall
13:25:18 <Kitt> good view from Depression side
13:26:08 <ynpvisitor25> at least it is not windy
13:27:39 <Kitt> good job bee
13:27:44 <Kitt> back to chores
13:27:49 <Kitt> have a good day everyone
13:33:06 <ynpvisitor25> x2 was not impressed
13:33:56 <Casey> 25, is there anything in particular you'd like me to look at when it come so "old GT posts"? I realize BH has been unusually regular lately. What makes you so confident "from here on out" is the end of that regularity? Seasonal change?
13:34:45 <ynpvisitor25> it seemed to ba all over the place last year, once the waather changed
13:34:52 <ynpvisitor25> weather
13:35:21 <Casey> Ok. I'll look at that in particular. Sorry if I sound confrontational, I really am just curious and am fascinated by the data we have.
13:35:27 <ynpvisitor25> yet it could get nice again, and stay more regular, for a bit, I would say mid October maybe, for when it changes up more
13:35:35 <ynpvisitor25> no worries at all
13:36:03 <ynpvisitor25> Eric looked into it last year, crunched some data numbers, compared with weather stats, yet could find no correlations
13:36:40 <Casey> There was the one 22+ hour interval a month ago that didn't amount to much. I'm hoping yesterday was a similar anomaly. Of course a sample of 1 is useless.
13:37:42 <Casey> Daisy?
13:38:00 <Casey> So hard to tell
13:40:44 <Kevin L> Now it is Daisy
13:41:11 <Casey> I was just about to say I'm confident it started at some point in there.
13:41:17 <ynpvisitor25> another poof
13:48:24 <Casey> September 17 & 18 last year had back to back 31.5 hour intervals that coincided with "multiday cold rainy weather". (Thanks for the comments Jake.) The prior recorded eruption indicates a 26 hour interval as well (maybe a double interval?). That makes me a believer.
13:51:06 <Casey> At least Kevin will probably get to see Aurum once or twice during the cold weather months.
13:55:16 <Kevin L> If OF steam doesn't block it.
14:02:17 <Casey> Now looks like a good time to step away. Talk to you all later.
14:50:38 <Betty> Afternoon all
14:51:28 <Kevin L> Hi Betty. Where are you now?
14:53:07 <Betty> Idaho Falls
14:53:20 <Betty> hi Kevin
14:53:22 <Kevin L> Wow, you went far!
14:53:41 <Betty> moab this Morning
14:53:55 <Kevin L> Did you make it to Durango when you were by Mesa Verde?
14:54:03 <Betty> no
14:54:36 <Kevin L> Bummer. They have the coolest old steam trains there. Been running them since the late 1800's.
14:54:50 <Kevin L> Did you get a Navajo Taco?
14:55:16 <Betty>
14:55:46 <Kevin L> Double bummer. Navajo tacos are awesome!
14:56:54 <Betty> I'm not a friend of tacos at all
14:57:35 <Kevin L> They make these on fry bread. I love them.
14:57:49 <Kevin L> Looks like Depression may be ie.
14:57:54 <Kevin L> Yep.
14:59:18 <Betty> My brother steals my wifi. No streaming for me
14:59:43 <Kevin L> Triple bummer!
15:00:08 <Betty> haha :-)
15:00:20 <Kevin L> Can't see much but steam now. I think you will have a better view tomorrow.
15:00:30 <Kevin L> Make sure you have rain gear.
15:00:53 <Betty> tomorrow I get all the stuff in person
15:01:18 <Betty> I brought my winter jacket
15:02:35 <Betty> but I fear that Las Vegas rental car does not have snow tires:-p
15:04:43 <Betty> Head to the pool. See you tomorrow on the other side
17:23:58 <Kevin L> :p
17:24:09 <Kevin L> Snow or fog?
17:39:39 <ynpvisitor45> I don't know, but Beehive is probably having a four hour int
17:39:58 <ynpvisitor45> And grand is going early
19:39:45 <ynpvisitor96> OF
