01:05:08 <ynpvisitor36> We are lucky :)

05:40:48 <ynpvisitor999> morning Dave
05:42:03 <Dave from B> Morning 999
05:45:19 <ynpvisitor999> morning Kevin
05:45:40 <ynpvisitor1> Once again I am #1, a.k.a. 747, joethermop
05:46:22 <Dave from B> Hey, Joe...I've been wondering who wears the 747 moniker...nice to know
05:46:46 <ynpvisitor999> OF could've erupted at 0735 if the pre-eruptive spouting didn't stop after ~35 seconds
05:47:29 <ynpvisitor1> ok Dave 747 is easier to type on youe style keyboard :)
05:48:06 <Dave from B> haha...is it going to be that kind of day today?:)
05:48:18 <ynpvisitor1> youe = your
05:48:38 <Kevin L™> Morning
05:48:48 <Kevin L™> looks like a fuzzball.
05:49:29 <Kevin L™> Another very long BH interval. :(
05:50:02 <Dave from B> Guess my prediction was a little off
05:51:25 <ynpvisitor999> How on earth am I supposed to determine the duration if this fuzzball stays for the entire eruption?
05:57:58 <Kevin L™> There are a lot of times you can't do an exact duration on the cam. This was one of them.
05:58:15 <ynpvisitor999> Turlong?
05:59:32 <Eric> morning
06:00:29 <ynpvisitor999> morning Eric
06:01:14 <Eric> My BH prediction was correct yesterday :-)
06:03:01 <Kevin L™> BH has been acting like Aurum.
06:11:19 <Eric> yep, predictable...but only with a very large window
06:12:12 <Eric> Next BH 20:36:05 ± 4h 44m
06:13:14 <Eric> Grand seems to be doing the opposite: Next 08:50:20 ± 8m
06:14:54 <Dave from B> Morning Eric....10 hour window is more like a barn door:D
06:15:27 <Eric> Well, it was needed for that last BH
06:17:28 <Jimbo Nihonium> Created in Japan
06:17:29 <Eric> Big window is better than being incorrect in a small window :-P
06:18:09 <Eric> Morning Jimbo
06:18:26 <Jimbo Nihonium> Hi Eric - thanks for the new numbers
06:25:59 <Eric> riverside
06:26:00 <Eric> ie
06:26:04 <ynpvisitor999> ^
06:26:47 <Dave from B> Grand is ready.....836
06:27:19 <Eric> prediction says 2 more turbans :-P
06:27:40 <Eric> well, I should say one more turban, then grand on the next interval
06:38:43 <ynpvisitor999> looks like another Turban
06:40:53 <Eric> lines up perfectly with my 8:50 prediction :-)
06:41:01 <Eric> ohhh, or not
06:42:10 <ynpvisitor999> I think Grand will erupt at the second Turban from now +- 1 Turban
06:42:32 <Eric> Very high probability on next turban interval
06:47:43 <Dave from B> Maybe I should stick to predicting......
06:52:25 <Eric> Well, if Turban stays average...Grand at 09:00 :-)
06:53:05 <Eric> 2 minutes outside my original window :-(
06:54:50 <ynpvisitor1> Eric, do you still do the live stream on youtube?
06:55:22 <Eric> Not yet...too difficult to keep it stable.
06:55:36 <ynpvisitor1> ok, thanks
06:55:50 <Eric> np...wish I could. The rewinds were great.
06:59:37 <Eric> Grand in under a minute :-)
06:59:40 <ynpvisitor999> Turban?
07:00:18 <Kevin L™> Grand won't be on this Turban, it will be the next unless there is a delay.
07:01:26 <ynpvisitor999> Grand
07:01:31 <Eric> Grand :-)
07:02:00 <Eric> Was going to be really surprised if it didn't go :-)
07:02:15 <ynpvisitor999> at least my prediction of next Turban +- 1 Turban was right :)
07:02:40 <Eric> Nice DG
07:02:50 <ynpvisitor999> Lion ini
07:03:03 <Eric> Wowza
07:03:53 <Eric> That is pretty :-)
07:04:02 <ynpvisitor999> Next Lion, if series continues, 1022 +- 10m
07:04:55 <Eric> Lotta fuzz down there at Grand
07:05:19 <ynpvisitor999> Vent 0904
07:06:00 <ynpvisitor999> quite surprised that could actually see Vent with this fuzzball
07:09:55 <Eric> Next Grand 15:43 +- 30
07:15:22 <ynpvisitor999> Looks like Grand quit

07:16:36 <lori> good morning all
07:16:41 <ynpvisitor999> morning
07:17:43 <ynpvisitor999> long single-burst Grand eruption
07:18:01 <Dave from B> long duration
07:18:08 <lori> off geyser topic- does anyone know the status of the brink of the upper falls? Is it still closed this year?
07:28:06 <Kevin L™> Morning Jenna. How is the corn doing?
07:33:21 <Jenna> doing pretty good now. had to replant some due to rain.
07:44:48 <ynpvisitor27> lori, https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/canyonprojects.htm
07:46:27 <ynpvisitor27> lori, https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/conditions.htm
07:47:22 <Dave from B> Thanks Art...GP Overlook may open in July...woohoo
07:49:18 <Art> That is surprising
07:49:34 <Art> They were talking last year of a multi year effort with Fairy Falls trail being closed for a number of years
07:49:40 <Dave from B> I'm anxious to see what they have done
07:50:11 <Dave from B> Lots of public pressure probably led to quicker time frame...it is a very popular area
07:50:25 <Art> People have been hiking all over the hill on the east side overlook a lot since that closure
07:51:07 <Art> Not sure what the official name of that area is but saw lots of visitors up on that hill
07:51:26 <Art> Looks like metal with wire
07:51:28 <Art> https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/gpareaclosures.htm
07:52:26 <Art> Answered my own question "Midway Bluff" is the name
07:53:53 <lori> thanks, I had looked at the links, it appears it is open, but like Fairy Falls, thought it was a multi-year project.
07:54:13 <Dave from B> I wonder how tough it has been to keep people out of these areas this year
07:54:32 <lori> the bluff was closed as well, sad that no one can follow rules.
07:54:49 <ynpvisitor34> There is no way they will get that open by July. They have not even begun any parking area.
07:55:01 <lori> I heard of a $500 fine early on, not sure if that is just a rumor, however.
07:55:49 <ynpvisitor34> Without expanded parking, I doubt they would reopen the area.
07:56:15 <lori> well, that is thinking logically, so.....lol
07:56:37 <Art> Didn't they just ask for public comment on the expanded parking?
07:56:49 <Art> "Digs through email...."
07:57:23 <ynpvisitor34> I think they received a lot of comments about the ground there being too warm for parking
07:58:27 <Art> Foudn it
07:58:28 <Art> Found
07:58:30 <Art> https://parkplanning.nps.gov/projectHome.cfm?projectID=67630
07:58:30 <ynpvisitor34> Not sure how much comments matter, yet there has been nothing done toward making any type of expanded parking area yet.
07:59:07 <ynpvisitor34> And July is not far off now
07:59:31 <Art> I believe public comment closed April 1st
07:59:43 <Eric> It mentions it will NOT open before July 1st...don't think they say when it will open by
07:59:53 <Art> So my guess, and this is purely speculation without any data to back it up, is they just reopen with the existing lot
08:00:13 <Dave from B> Art, sounds reasonable to me
08:00:14 <Art> If it's this year at all
08:00:17 <Eric> and Hello Art :-)
08:00:26 <Art> Morning all
08:01:43 <ynpvisitor34> I am guessing with the expected crowds and lack of parking, they keep it closed.
08:09:15 <Eric> Daisy in the next few
08:10:14 <Eric> Should say...daisy in the next 4 minutes.
08:12:40 <Dave from B> In a shocker, FB pressure may have paid off...deliquent customer calling tomorrow with a credit card...keep your fingers crossed.
08:12:40 <Eric> daisy
08:13:38 <Eric> Now there is a geyser we can set our watches too :-)
08:13:42 <Eric> to
08:14:31 <Eric> Glad they are communicating Dave
08:14:40 <Kevin L™> Dead center
08:15:21 <Eric> Wish BH would take some lessons
08:15:45 <Kevin L™> And Aurum
08:16:21 <Eric> aurum is more predictable than BH right now
08:18:13 <Kevin L™> So give me an Aurum prediction.
08:18:50 <Art> Aurum 6/6 1200 +- 24hrs
08:19:36 <Kevin L™> :)
08:20:33 <Eric> Hard with the double interval right now...but let's go 12:20 +- 2h
08:20:48 <Eric> I think we are in window
08:24:44 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
08:24:50 <ynpvisitor999> LC ie
08:24:53 <Kevin L™> Lion
08:26:55 <ynpvisitor999> next Lion, if series continues, 1134 +- 10m
09:04:53 <Eric> OF pool filling fast
09:16:09 <Kevin L™> Empties faster.
09:36:38 <Dave from B> Anyone know how long Andy is at OF?
09:37:17 <Kevin L™> Until he leaves.
09:37:44 <Biddle> He will probably leave when he wants to :)
09:37:50 <Eric> 2 and done on Lion? :-(
09:38:17 <Kevin L™> I think he will leave before he wants to!
09:38:36 <Kevin L™> Been looking at Lion. May be a 2 and out.
09:39:24 <Biddle> You are probably right, i would never want to leave.
09:39:55 <Kevin L™> Lion is trying.
09:40:25 <Kevin L™> 1140
09:40:41 <Kevin L™> minor
09:41:08 <Dave from B> Thanks for all the valuable info guys
09:43:06 <Dave from B> Almost as valauable as my predictions
09:43:40 <Kevin L™> Just remember to bring your shovel when you take the subway in Denver Dave.
09:43:51 <Dave from B> :D
09:44:17 <Dave from B> I'll wear my sunglasses so it feels like I'm underground
09:44:30 <Kevin L™> :)
09:45:36 <Dave from B> Leaving for haircut soon, anything big due?
09:46:08 <Kevin L™> It was fun watching the pantographs spark on the catenary during the snow while I was there.
09:48:00 <ynpvisitor11> Wow BH watchers and we are at 8.5 hours.
09:49:14 <Kevin L™> Just hit 100° here today
09:50:00 <ynpvisitor11> You need to convert to Celsius, would make you feel cooler.
09:50:28 <ynpvisitor11> And remember it is a dry heat. Want to get hot, go visit Graham about August
09:50:34 <Kevin L™> That would work. Think that is about 40°C
09:50:58 <Dave from B> You need a coat?
09:51:53 <Kevin L™> It is a bit more humid than normal right now. Up to 13%
09:52:07 <ynpvisitor11> I thought you were getting your hair cut? Good luck in the big city, you will need it.
09:53:07 <ynpvisitor11> Last time I was in Denver, it took 5 hours to drive through to Colorado Springs.
09:53:48 <ynpvisitor11> Was actually going to Pueblo, but no traffic there as who wants to go to Pueblo.
09:54:22 <ynpvisitor11> Enjoy the 9 hour BH. Got to go.
09:54:45 <Kevin L™> Hope it goes before dark!
09:56:20 <Art> I was lucky (or unlucky) enough to catch BH today. Compliments of a cranky 2 year old having a meltdown from 3-5am
09:57:07 <Art> CamOp zoomed in too but night mode doesn't seem to work too well at any zoom level
09:58:38 <Dave from B> now, I'm off...go F&M
09:59:36 <Kevin L™> Night mode hates zoom.
10:00:01 <Kevin L™> I got the early one Monday.
10:01:11 <Art> I was surprised there was a Cam Op to be honest
10:02:51 <Eric> zoom reduces light on cameras...either optically or digitally. =
10:04:30 <Eric> Thar she blows
10:04:38 <Kevin L™> Castle
10:05:22 <Kevin L™> Or Schloß for Betty.
10:05:28 <Eric> If a couple of those trees went away, we could probably see tilts baby
10:06:11 <Kevin L™> Chainsaws prevent forest fires...
10:07:27 <Eric> They also start quite a few
10:07:59 <Eric> spark arresters are much better now though
10:08:31 <Kevin L™> That does help.
10:09:25 <Kevin L™> Looks like a wants to minor
10:20:55 <Eric> You find aurum yet?
10:21:25 <Eric> Kevin, you have been staring at aurum for my whole window...right?
10:21:38 <Kevin L™> Nope
10:21:57 <Eric> No more predictions for you then :-P
10:22:07 <Kevin L™> It is till asleep
10:22:22 <Eric> looks hot
10:22:53 <Kevin L™> It was off screen during Castle but static is on.
10:29:13 <ynpvisitor70> The larger stream screen is great Eric
10:57:32 <Eric> Glad you like it 70
10:58:08 <Eric> Slowly getting this geyser dashboard how I want it :-)
10:58:47 <Eric> Hopefully with enough flexibility and capabilities to be close to optimal for everyone :-)
11:12:14 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:13:53 <Eric> No sleeping...you will miss aurum :-P
11:24:53 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:25:44 <Kevin L™> Ran out of NoDoz®
11:26:34 <Eric> You probably missed aurum then...
11:28:53 <Dave from B> You slept right thur Artemesia
11:29:22 <Kevin L™> I thought I wasv on the subway.
11:29:57 <Dave from B> Just open your eyes and you will see the light
11:30:32 <Betty> Hellllooooooo alllll, wake up
11:31:06 <Betty> :-)
11:31:59 <Eric> Hi Betty
11:33:08 <Betty> hey Eric
11:33:23 <Betty> what did I miss?
11:33:54 <Kevin L™> The chance for a good nap.
11:34:51 <Kevin L™> Maybe Aurum will come out for Betty
11:34:54 <Eric> Not a lot Betty....13 minute 1b Grand was interesting
11:35:07 <Eric> Probably already went while you were sleeping
11:36:22 <Betty> the last Grand was 4 hrs ago...I just left work then, no sleep at all ;-)
11:37:23 <Betty> my day is almost over
11:37:41 <Betty> you mix something up
11:43:42 <Kevin L™> I could do biscuits....
11:50:12 <Eric> I meant Kevin probably slept through aurum :-)
11:50:58 <Betty> ohhh, ok. :-p
11:55:39 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:57:06 <ynpvisitor107> Siesta time in Vegas, it is over 100. That is temp, not Kevin's age, though rumor is he is close.
11:57:54 <Kevin L™> 103.5° at the local weather station.
11:58:19 <Kevin L™> Gift for the Father who has everything: http://earthtosky.net/product/spacehammer
11:59:35 <ynpvisitor107> Looks like just what you need for fixing pipes.
12:02:49 <Kevin L™> I was considering concrete and astroturf.
12:09:06 <Eric> mower transmission gave out on me today :-( Those things always go bad before the motor
12:10:44 <Kevin L™> My mower transmission doesn't work either unless I tell him he can't eat until he mows the lawn.
12:11:37 <Betty> hey, a geyser!
12:12:20 <Kevin L™> Is that what they look like?
12:12:39 <Betty> think so
12:15:13 <Betty> runoff channel is overflowing
12:22:26 <ynpvisitor107> I think Dave brook BH. All that talk of fish Monday.
12:23:19 <Betty> yeah, let´s blame him
12:24:02 <Kevin L™> It bought fish and didn't pay
12:24:30 <ynpvisitor107> We can not blame Kevin, Aurum is his fault, not fair to blame him for more then one geyser.
12:42:02 <Eric> Grand 15:39 +- 5 minutes
12:42:55 <Kevin L™> Based on the OF prediction?
12:43:33 <Eric> OF should go smack dab in the middle of Grand :-P
12:55:30 <ynpvisitor107> maybe between the fist and second busts.
13:07:40 <ynpvisitor107> Well enjoy the people watching.
13:08:02 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
13:08:26 <Eric> hmmm, 17 minute interval this early in the Grand cycle. Maybe a day for big D to rear it's ugly head
13:08:47 <Dave from B> You rang?
13:08:58 <Eric> eek
13:09:04 <Betty> haha
13:09:17 <Eric> Baaa
13:09:23 <Dave from B> That's what my uncle has alwasy called me for some reason
13:10:22 <Eric> Big D, eek, haha or Baaa?
13:10:50 <Betty> all in this order
13:10:53 <Eric> or Ugly Head
13:11:03 <Eric> :-P
13:11:18 <Dave from B> :D
13:12:28 <Kevin L™> He fore saw Dave selling fish to non paying out of state customers on the Denver subway.
13:12:59 <Dave from B> Insert eye roll emoji again
13:13:36 <ynpvisitor117> 🙄
13:15:59 <Eric> Dave, you going to sell fish on the Denver subway?
13:16:48 <Eric> Take a square reader with you and get payment up front!
13:17:19 <Eric> Daisy, Grand, OF
13:27:06 <Kevin L™> Daisy
13:29:50 <Eric> I think that 1433 Turban might have been ie
13:39:17 <Eric> Grand OF Dual about to go down....
13:40:14 <Eric> or we get another turban....
13:52:28 <Eric> I think phone data might be bad in the UGB already.
13:55:50 <Betty> way time for sleep. Enjoy Grand and BH and OF and Aurum.
13:59:08 <Eric> Night Betty
13:59:42 <Eric> OF is really trying for 2h+ today
14:03:56 <Eric> hmmm, that Turban interval looks like we missed one in-between
14:05:18 <ynpvisitor56> anyone know if the signal from Ft. Collins to set atomic watches will reach Tennessee.
14:05:27 <Kevin L™> We going to get a 2h OF?
14:06:01 <Kevin L™> I think it is shortwave so it should.
14:06:26 <ynpvisitor56> lc here.
14:07:06 <ynpvisitor56> my watch didn't reset when I replaced the battery, so I was just wondering.
14:08:17 <Kevin L™> Close to 2h.
14:10:12 <Kevin L™> I wonder if you have to do something manually to make it find the signal.
14:10:38 <ynpvisitor56> I did set the city.
14:11:14 <ynpvisitor56> since I only use it in the park I set it to Denver.
14:12:34 <ynpvisitor56> I put it close to a window on the north last night.
14:18:09 <Eric> I can never get my atomic clock to sync inside my house.
14:18:24 <Eric> I end up just setting it against my phone
14:18:54 <Eric> abooon
14:18:56 <Eric> grand
14:19:01 <Kevin L™> Grand
14:19:12 <Eric> Nice start
14:21:24 <ynpvisitor56> does the signal include mo, day, yr?
14:25:14 <Eric> I believe it is just a timecode based on UTC, so yes.
14:31:41 <Dave from B> Uggh
14:32:23 <Eric> another 7hr+ Grand...
14:33:03 <Dave from B> Hi, lc
14:33:58 <ynpvisitor56> hey Dave
14:34:18 <Dave from B> What day are you leaving for the good ole west?
14:34:33 <ynpvisitor56> 24th
14:34:45 <Dave from B> Great...it's getting closer
14:35:08 <ynpvisitor56> yep
14:35:35 <ynpvisitor56> have to start getting things together pretty soon.
14:37:35 <ynpvisitor56> be nice if F&M would come alive.
14:41:25 <Kevin L™> Needs Pepsi.
14:41:42 <Kevin L™> I think I am dating myself there.
14:43:24 <Dave from B> F&M is showing signs of life..Hope it erupts in the next few days
14:44:39 <Kevin L™> It will be in July Dave.
14:48:49 <Dave from B> That would be okay...means no long jaunts to F&M until trip #2
14:49:24 <ynpvisitor56> Dave, when is your 2nd trip?
14:52:05 <Dave from B> For the Eclipse..probably 3 nights
14:52:20 <Dave from B> Not coming for Labor Day this year
14:52:32 <Dave from B> After Eclipse we take Becca to Portland
14:53:30 <ynpvisitor56> ok
14:54:01 <Kevin L™> No geysers in Portland.
14:54:45 <ynpvisitor43> BHI
14:54:50 <ynpvisitor43> ding
14:54:50 <Dave from B> If you lived there, there would propably be some in your backyard:P
14:54:53 <ynpvisitor43> ding ding
14:55:20 <Kevin L™> Sending text
14:56:07 <Dave from B> Jake, you have friends in BH places?
14:56:24 <Jake> no, just happened to come in right now
14:56:55 <Jake> BH must wait until 1701 to make the GT prediction window
14:57:00 <Kevin L™> Sure wasn't expecting that now.
14:58:34 <Kitt> yay, indy
14:58:39 <Kitt> thanks for the text
14:59:37 <ynpvisitor56> hey Kitt, got your email.
