05:50:48 <ynpvisitor45> Wow 15° out there? Brrrrrrrr!
05:52:33 <Dave from B> Morning everyone...20F in Blgs for the low
05:53:35 <Kevin L> :)
05:54:03 <Dave from B> :) = Desert comment?
05:54:13 <Kevin L> :)
05:54:24 <Kevin L> We got into the 50s.
05:55:09 <Dave from B> Kevin, I was actually cheering for the Giants last night. How fun would have a Giants Dodgers playoff series been?
05:56:43 <Kevin L> I am always scared of the Giants. They bite us too many times.
05:59:17 <Kevin L> Home Depot keeps trying to sell me a new furnace, now they want to sell me a rain barrel.
05:59:49 <Dave from B> Rain barrel in the desert?
06:00:38 <Kevin L> I could fill it with tannerite and have a good time.
06:16:12 <Dave from B> SteveO is at Grand
06:16:40 <Dave from B> Sorry SteveO but I hope we have 3 or 4 Turbans before an eruption.
06:27:46 <Kevin L> And we still may not see it!
07:07:15 <Dave from B> G R A N D
07:07:26 <Dave from B> 903 start
07:11:21 <ynpvisitor61> Glad it waited
07:13:34 <Dave from B> steam everywhere
07:32:35 <Kevin L> Well I missed that one.
07:37:18 <Kevin L> Depression?
08:15:02 <ynpvisitor78> Look out Dave, free fish! http://www.foxnews.com/world/2016/10/12/fishermans-dream-80000-trout-mistakenly-set-free.html
08:16:22 <Kevin L> Wouldn't that be nice!
08:24:15 <Dave from B> Accidents always seem to happen
08:30:12 <Casey> Morning. Impressive Oblong steam.
08:30:22 <Kevin L> Lot of steam in the Grotto area.
08:30:46 <Kevin L> Probably is Oblong.
08:41:24 <Kevin L> No shorts out there today!
08:43:44 <Casey> OF ie
09:00:00 <Casey> Are we assuming BH erupted during the cam reset (or some other time when visibility was low)?
09:04:38 <Kevin L> I would bet that it did.
09:07:34 <Casey> Yeah. BH doesn't seem interested in erupting any time soon. I'm a little surprised there DaveM didn't catch it on his capture.
09:21:07 <Dave from B> DMorning Casey. Did you see the view early this morning?
09:22:31 <Kevin L> What view?
09:24:05 <Dave from B> Exactly
09:25:14 <Casey> Low visibility? Yeah, I actually just looked at the capture hoping to find BH. DaveM did spot Lion during some of the worst visibility. He knows what he's doing.
09:25:39 <Kevin L> He is the master indeed.
09:25:56 <Dave from B> Yes, master of steamology
10:18:12 <Kevin L> Turned into a nice day.
11:01:16 <Dave from B> YNP Visitation thru Sept in next link...
11:01:20 <Dave from B> https://irma.nps.gov/Stats/SSRSReports/Park%20Specific%20Reports/Park%20All%20Months?Park=YELL
11:02:46 <Dave from B> Buses up 22% in Sept...most everything else about evern
11:06:13 <Jake> spring months (Apr, May, Jun) up 6% - 10% over last year, but July/Aug/Sep just 0% to 1% increase over last year. South
11:06:29 <Jake> South Gate closure seems to be part of that
11:06:58 <Jake> those increases are for total vehicles
11:10:16 <ynpvisitor39> Snow polls? I don't remember them.
11:12:19 <Jake> Sure, OK..... How often do you enjoy snow? Very Often, Often, Sometimes, Not Often, Rarely, Very Rarely
11:13:03 <ynpvisitor39> funny
12:34:57 <Casey> Uncertain?
12:35:14 <kc (working)> yep. nice
12:35:33 <kc (working)> and daisy of course too
12:35:52 <kc (working)> uncertain is dual w sawmill
12:35:59 <Casey> Oops. I guess I should have noted that. Uncertain caughty my attention
12:36:24 <kc (working)> for a little geyser, it looks great on wc on clear days
12:38:25 <Casey> That was exciting an exciting few minutes. It's been a pretty slow day otherwise.
12:41:57 <Casey> Lion ie
12:56:56 <ynpvisitor76> BHI?
12:57:21 <Casey> I can't tell
12:58:18 <Casey> It would be a pretty short double interval
13:02:20 <Casey> Surely there would be more than one person standing there if BHI was doing anything
13:04:00 <Casey> Thanks camop
13:07:26 <Betty> hi all
13:08:22 <Kevin L> Abend Betty.
13:08:45 <Betty> Hi Kevin
13:09:09 <Betty> no BH yet?
13:09:40 <Kevin L> Guess not. I just got back myself.
13:09:44 <Casey> Hi Betty. Not yet.
13:10:17 <Kevin L> It (and Aurum) was waiting for you.
13:11:19 <Betty> disappeared again in the night cam interuption?
13:11:27 <Betty> hey Casey
13:12:07 <Kevin L> Lot of fog this morning. It was 15° this morning.
13:12:19 <Betty> both should go soon, if they waited for me. Only a short stopover on my way to bed
13:12:56 <Kevin L> Nice puff now.
13:12:57 <Betty> big splash
13:13:00 <Casey> Looked like a splash from BH there
13:13:23 <Casey> I still think it erupted during the cam reset. Based on the other observations DaveM made, I don't think he missed it, even in that fog.
13:14:10 <Kevin L> It would be fun to have an ir cam and see if you could tell geysers in the fog.
13:15:11 <Casey> That would be nice.
13:16:37 <Casey> I pulled a Betty and tried to see if any of the posted Lion eruptions could have been BH. If it weren't for the posted times, I wouldn't have found Lion on my own. They were definitely Lion though.
13:27:41 <Casey> OF
13:45:50 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
13:53:55 <lc> got text from Kitt, she is counting on chat folks to catch indy.
13:54:05 <lc> they are at Grand.
13:54:35 <Kevin L> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz huh!!?? She may be in trouble!
13:55:17 <lc> a lot of no indy BH's lately.
13:55:30 <Kevin L> Are those snow stakes by the bw?
13:55:44 <Betty> yep
13:59:19 <lc> you faked me out Kevin, I thought you said "snow flakes".
14:00:00 <lc> thought you had completely lost it.
14:01:32 <Betty> well I think you need to enjoy BH without me. Time for zzzzzzzzzzzleep
14:19:26 <Casey> Riverside
14:19:59 <Jake> as scheduled
14:21:02 <Casey> You can set your watch by it right now. Very few short mode (is the right way to describe it?) eruptions.
14:22:28 <Jake> short mode I think is the vernacular
14:24:07 <Jake> perhaps in the literal sense of a statistical mode, not that it "locks into" a mode of erupting one way or another
14:28:15 <Casey> Any best-guesses on how to predict which mode Riverside's interval will be?
14:28:50 <Jake> now, yes, because they're 99% long
14:29:01 <Kevin L> Heat must be getting to me lc. Been working outside. I could have seen snowflakes!
14:29:08 <Jake> when it was more truly bi-modal, I don't think anyone had found anything
14:29:40 <Casey> Haha, Jake. I guess long is always the best guess right now.
14:31:13 <lc> almost always long now.
14:32:56 <Casey> Yeah. It would take a long time now to collect enough data on the short ones to be worth anything.
14:34:05 <Jake> I didn't observe Riverside this year. In years past, it would attempt to erupt with splashing out the back vent at the time for a short mode eruption (very predictably) and if the eruption didn't happen it would then come 40 minutes later at the time for the long interval
14:34:26 <Jake> I don't know if that attempted eruption phenomenon is still happening (I suspect it is)
14:36:31 <lc> going to guess Grand on the next Turban.
14:38:18 <Casey> Jake, is there a way to change the scale of the y-axis on the GT analysis charts?
14:38:57 <Jake> no
14:39:41 <Jake> we have done some work to re-do that whole page--it's got some crap functionality at this point
14:40:08 <Jake> bbl
14:48:38 <Casey> I'm calling it a day. Enjoy BH everybody.
14:49:01 <Kevin L> Night Casey.
14:51:06 <Casey> I have to wait for this Turban at least.
14:52:06 <Casey> No luck. Oh well. Enjoy. Bye for real this time.
15:00:18 <Kevin L> If I was Aurum, I would erupt tight now.
15:00:56 <ynpvisitor52.99> because you said that, it probably won't
15:07:54 <ynpvisitor86> Hi
15:08:02 <ynpvisitor56> OF
15:11:42 <Graham> hello, sorry i am late
15:11:44 <Kevin L> Grand
15:11:56 <ynpvisitor56> Nice!
15:12:23 <lc> one Turban off.
15:14:31 <Kevin L> Saved BH for you too.
15:17:22 <ynpvisitor98> ooh, nice, glad Kitt and SteveO will get both (hopefully BH will cooperate)
15:18:08 <Kevin L> Probably erupting as a no indy right now.
15:18:33 <ynpvisitor98> nope, it will be nice to the gazers on this lovely day
15:20:45 <ynpvisitor56> Daisy looks close
15:21:09 <ynpvisitor56> OT?
15:21:51 <Graham> yup
15:21:55 <ynpvisitor98> the cam is so nice when it is not windy
15:22:28 <lc> is Old Tardy ie?
15:22:54 <ynpvisitor98> consensus says yes
15:23:00 <ynpvisitor8> Looks like it
15:23:05 <ynpvisitor98> only one burst
15:23:13 <ynpvisitor98> off to Bee?
15:24:37 <lc> good luck with Bee.
15:24:51 <lc> good night all.
15:41:11 <Graham> daisy
15:42:41 <ynpvisitor56> pretty nice dual with Sawmill
15:57:22 <ynpvisitor21> Oblong?
16:13:46 <ynpvisitor91> Here for bh. what's with the snow polls?
16:23:49 <Graham> must be expectingheavy snowfall this winter
16:38:32 <Graham> OF
16:38:47 <Biddle> very fluffy today
16:41:02 <Graham> and short
16:43:33 <ynpvisitor39> big spash from BH
16:54:42 <ynpvisitor39> Castle
17:05:07 <Graham> the homeless people are out there
17:14:38 <ynpvisitor81> Too bad BH did not cooperate
17:51:12 <Graham> nicely lit of
17:52:16 <Graham> goodnight
18:19:06 <Kevin L> Daisy
19:03:56 <ynpvisitor55> Kevin broke BH, we going to get a double dark cam interval?
19:04:41 <ynpvisitor39> Its because we
19:04:50 <ynpvisitor39> were watching it!
19:05:03 <ynpvisitor33> so its mad now
19:05:55 <ynpvisitor55> It is all Kevin's fault for talking about snakes. He vexed us.
19:06:51 <ynpvisitor39> No Aurum reports today either...
19:07:07 <ynpvisitor33> its mad also
19:07:50 <ynpvisitor55> Or it went behind that other geyser's steam!
19:11:16 <ynpvisitor39> actually it looked like the west bubblers were going when the cam was zoomed in at bh earlier.
19:12:32 <ynpvisitor55> On the bright side, they have come up with instant beer. Even have powdered booze so it is full strength. Just need to get government approval for the powdered booze. And get someone to make better flavors.
19:13:40 <ynpvisitor39> good idea 55
19:14:15 <ynpvisitor55> So gazers can have a pint when F&M finally goes off. Just need some ice water.
19:19:38 <ynpvisitor55> Well enjoy Giantess.
19:37:33 <Kevin L> Good BH splash now.
19:41:48 <Kevin L> OF
19:42:52 <Kevin L> More from BH
19:43:36 <ynpvisitor39> thanks Fluffy
19:45:47 <Kevin L> It would be nice to get a view of BHI right now. Stinking steam!
19:46:17 <Kevin L> No GT report.
19:53:40 <Kevin L> Getting big splashes but not finishing the deal.
20:27:26 <ynpvisitor89> bhi
20:27:53 <Kevin L> I think we have it.
20:28:04 <ynpvisitor39> :)
20:28:30 <Kevin L> Good lighting for it too!
20:28:37 <ynpvisitor39> Is that Oblong too?
20:29:00 <ynpvisitor89> yes
20:29:05 <Kevin L> I believe it is.
20:33:33 <ynpvisitor39> BH
20:34:13 <ynpvisitor39> worth the wait
20:34:36 <Kevin L> No doubt what it is!
20:36:04 <ynpvisitor39> thankd for the zoom op!
20:39:17 <ynpvisitor39> thanks
20:40:24 <Kevin L> Amazing how bright it is.
20:44:11 <ynpvisitor42> It is quite often better to be lucky than good :)
21:05:55 <ynpvisitor39> Daisy ie
21:11:44 <ynpvisitor39> Riverside?
21:11:57 <ynpvisitor89> yes
21:16:32 <ynpvisitor39> OF
