04:53:23 <ynpvisitor59> Hi Lion
04:55:19 <ynpvisitor5> Sponge boils Around edges to 3" about a minute ago
04:57:09 <ynpvisitor59> No Aurum?
04:57:15 <ynpvisitor5> Dome ie
04:57:53 <ynpvisitor5> Who in their right mind would sit up there!
05:04:07 <ynpvisitor5> LC ie
05:05:53 <ynpvisitor5> What is the pool on the opposite side of the boardwalk from NG?
05:13:34 <ynpvisitor5> Of ie
05:15:15 <ynpvisitor5> Great fountain 638 per frs
05:29:14 <ynpvisitor64> Coyote headed down boardwalk to sawmill from lion junction. In the trees now
05:31:03 <ynpvisitor64> Dome ie
05:49:54 <ynpvisitor94> indy
05:50:26 <ynpvisitor94> No idea how to send a text
05:51:35 <ynpvisitor94> Early end of prediction window
05:52:59 <Jimbo Plutonium> BH prediction window opened at 7:27
05:56:45 <Jimbo Plutonium> BH start
05:57:39 <Jimbo Plutonium> Thanks camop
05:58:03 <ynpvisitor69> Sorry my life got in the way
05:59:11 <Jimbo Plutonium> Life happens
06:00:50 <Jimbo Plutonium> Good show on a grey morning for the early arrivers'
06:02:10 <Jimbo Plutonium> Next BH probably at night.
06:02:30 <Jimbo Plutonium> There's some strong thunderstorms in western Montana now
06:09:26 <Jimbo Plutonium> no warnings though
06:35:00 <Casey> Morning everybody
07:08:25 <Kevin L™> Oblong?
07:08:38 <ynpvisitor69> yes
07:09:10 <Kevin L™> :)
07:09:20 <Casey> Posted on GT now too
07:09:41 <Kevin L™> Love it!
07:10:14 <Casey> Lion
07:10:55 <Kevin L™> Great start
07:11:45 <Kevin L™> One of the best geysers in the park.
07:12:38 <Jimbo Plutonium> Sounds like Oblong is getting its act together.
07:25:47 <Casey> Current F&M event cycle
07:27:04 <Kevin L™> Sure hope it goes so Dave gets freed up.
07:33:00 <Casey> I'll be distracted for a while. Make lots of noise if anything exciting happens.
07:43:16 <Jimbo Plutonium> Looks promising
07:44:49 <Casey> No eruption.
07:46:04 <Jimbo Plutonium> So is that Grotto?
07:46:19 <ynpvisitor14> probably
07:46:24 <Casey> That's my thought
07:47:13 <Casey> F&M is much farther to the right (almost as far right as Riverside)
07:48:00 <Kevin L™> Grotto posted at 0840 from the field.
07:48:09 <ynpvisitor14> rocket already had a major this morning too
07:49:16 <Kevin L™> And Atomizer!
07:49:44 <ynpvisitor14> could that be grotto fountain?
07:50:57 <Casey> Here's the last F&M eruption at 4x speed. https://youtu.be/pu6m6qxdxb0?t=24m16s
08:01:05 <Eric> Morning
08:01:18 <Eric> Is there something ie in front of LC?
08:01:20 <Kevin L™> Hi.
08:02:05 <Eric> Thanks for the zoom...nope, guess not.
08:02:13 <Kevin L™> Looks like behind.
08:02:15 <ynpvisitor14> just a steamy BH...
08:02:21 <Eric> Don't remember there being so much white there in the past
08:02:21 <ynpvisitor14> hope it goes soon
08:02:36 <ynpvisitor14> but that is unlikely
08:02:41 <Kevin L™> If you are talking about BH, you missed it.
08:02:56 <ynpvisitor14> yeah...
08:04:16 <ynpvisitor69> plate
08:06:57 <Eric> Dark clouds moving inn :-(
08:07:31 <Kevin L™> They are hunting Dave and Becca....
08:08:20 <Eric> I am sure they have a nice camp setup down at F&M now.
08:09:22 <Kevin L™> The homeless crowd is back!
08:09:37 <Kevin L™> Looks like the rain has hit OF
08:10:01 <Eric> haha, yep. Wonder if Dave slept down there last night.
08:10:08 <Kevin L™> Boy are they scattering!
08:10:19 <Kevin L™> Lightning.
08:11:49 <Eric> Mass exodus from OF
08:20:42 <Eric> OF
08:21:44 <Eric> Nice contrast on static
08:22:17 <Kevin L™> It sure is.
08:25:53 <Dave from 229> Gazers getting tired of walking to f&m 3-4 times a day. We have are bikes but we are also tired
08:26:18 <Eric> Hi Dave!
08:26:25 <ynpvisitor14> Hi!
08:26:27 <Dave from 229> Rain has stopped. What dies radar look like?
08:26:32 <Eric> Hope you got under cover for that rain
08:26:40 <Kevin L™> Really nasty stuff heading your way.
08:27:06 <Eric> Yes, lots of yellow and smalls reds on the radar lining up with you
08:27:13 <Casey> Hi Dave
08:27:27 <ynpvisitor11> How am I supposed to get to grand?
08:27:37 <Eric> Run :-D
08:27:43 <ynpvisitor14> tent?
08:27:46 <Eric> got a meeting...bbl
08:27:52 <ynpvisitor14> bye
08:28:18 <Kevin L™> Should be safe Eric
08:30:45 <Kevin L™> Lion
08:31:40 <ynpvisitor11> Did catch my first atomizer major
08:32:01 <Kevin L™> That is fun!
08:32:13 <Kevin L™> How did Arty look
08:36:33 <ynpvisitor11> Missed arty by 4-5 hours. It's on the list but not in the middle of the night
08:37:00 <ynpvisitor11> Atomizer steam vent sounds like a train
08:43:41 <Kevin L™> Waaaaay back when they used to let you go along the river just past Morning Glory and get to Arty on the backside. You could stand very near Atomizer. It was lots of fun.
08:44:10 <ynpvisitor11> Thinking of heading out
08:44:31 <Kevin L™> Looks to be clearing, but watch out. More is coming
08:44:45 <Kevin L™> Hey Dave, Aurum is due!
09:02:12 <Eric> Dave...look for grand about 1130
09:04:00 <Eric> or now
09:04:08 <Eric> Grand
09:04:09 <Kevin L™> Maybe earlier....
09:04:24 <Eric> Well, the odds were low for this turban
09:04:30 <Eric> was expecting it on next one
09:04:49 <Eric> 5:43 interval
09:06:03 <Casey> Wow! Tied for shortest interval of the last 1000
09:06:47 <Kevin L™> One of the shortest I ever remember!
09:10:45 <Casey> I missed the start, so I don't have the duration timer running.
09:13:06 <ynpvisitor8> Dave was probably at Oblong knowing Grand is not dew for a few turbans.
09:19:31 <ynpvisitor61> Grand was 1103 g1q. Intervals are shortening
09:19:50 <ynpvisitor61> Walk up grand:)
09:20:05 <Eric> Nice...I thought it would pop on next turban
09:20:13 <Eric> especially with the rain
09:20:22 <Eric> Glad you got it
09:21:17 <ynpvisitor61> Did overnight grand get discovered?
09:21:28 <Eric> not yet
09:21:47 <Kevin L™> And you didn't even get wet!
09:22:01 <ynpvisitor61> We will wave at lion in 2 minutes
09:22:21 <Eric> Nice...maybe kevin will zoom in on you :-P
09:22:41 <ynpvisitor61> Only gazers stupid enough to be at grand
09:22:54 <Eric> haha...say hi to becca for me :-D
09:23:12 <ynpvisitor61> I will do
09:23:16 <Kevin L™> Daisy is also due soon.
09:24:03 <ynpvisitor61> That's too far from cabin!
09:25:21 <Casey> Too far from the cabin?! Imagine how the rest of us feel. Go out there and enjoy it for the rest of us. No excuses.
09:25:51 <ynpvisitor61> Hahaha
09:26:52 <ynpvisitor61> We're sitting on lion bench
09:27:21 <Kevin L™> OF steam is covering you
09:27:46 <Kevin L™> How does Lion look? It should be close.
09:28:19 <ynpvisitor61> It looks ready
09:28:53 <Casey> Do you always look that blurry?
09:29:23 <ynpvisitor61> Eric, there is theory I just heard thatBH shortens when dome is active
09:30:08 <Kevin L™> That make Aurum irregular.
09:30:12 <ynpvisitor61> Rain starting again
09:30:27 <Kevin L™> How is the wind?
09:30:39 <Kevin L™> Plate
09:31:03 <ynpvisitor61> You'll never guess what happened when I took my umbrella out
09:31:35 <ynpvisitor61> I don't see plate
09:31:53 <ynpvisitor61> Slight breeze
09:32:08 <Eric> ohh, I was on phone and missed Dave's mug :-(
09:33:05 <Eric> daisy before lion?
09:33:08 <Kevin L™> Really couldn't see him. We are in a Daisy window and nearing an OF window also.
09:33:34 <ynpvisitor61> Lion is going in next 4 minutes
09:33:59 <ynpvisitor61> LC ns
09:34:02 <Kevin L™> My daughter sent me some alligator sausage. Wonder if she is trying to tell me something?
09:34:27 <ynpvisitor61> That you like meat?
09:36:30 <Kevin L™> FYI the radar is showing rain but nothing as hard as the one downpour. Clearing west of West with not much behind it.
09:36:58 <ynpvisitor61> Great thanks
09:39:42 <Kevin L™> .
09:39:46 <Eric> oblong?
09:40:09 <Kevin L™> That would be great if it is.
09:40:33 <Casey> What are the odds Dave broke the Lion series?
09:40:33 <ynpvisitor61> Not sure if anyone is down there
09:41:05 <ynpvisitor61> Daisy?
09:41:09 <Eric> Yes, one and done would be unusual for Lion
09:41:15 <Eric> Not yet
09:41:25 <Kevin L™> There you go Dave!
09:42:09 <Eric> Interesting theory on Dome/BH Dave
09:42:13 <ynpvisitor61> Already been 2 lions in this series. Just heard our first roar
09:42:15 <Casey> We've already had a single Lion after the ini
09:42:39 <Eric> ohh, woops..missed that.
09:42:50 <Kevin L™> All the geysers are teasing us today.
09:42:52 <Eric> That steam looks very oblongesque
09:43:26 <Kevin L™> Anything on the radio Dave?
09:43:41 <Eric> Looks like another lion roar
09:44:32 <Kevin L™> Gee, it hasn't even made it to 100° here today!
09:44:38 <ynpvisitor61> Nothing on radio. Second roar. Think lion is done. Series have been short of late
09:44:40 <Eric> oblong was at 905 ie...what else could tthat be?
09:45:04 <ynpvisitor63> could post-Grand Vent and Turban
09:45:10 <ynpvisitor63> could be
09:45:23 <ynpvisitor61> Leaving lion
09:45:27 <Casey> COme on lion
09:45:31 <Eric> yah, I guess so...lots of steam today
09:45:36 <Kevin L™> It heard you Dave.
09:45:42 <Eric> haha
09:45:50 <ynpvisitor61> Third roar
09:46:13 <Kevin L™> It will wait until you get to Aurum.
09:46:17 <Eric> maybe lion and daisy met in the middle near grand :-P
09:46:35 <Kevin L™> Good point Eric
09:46:53 <Casey> Shorter Lion series when Dome is active?
09:47:08 <Eric> roar
09:47:40 <Casey> Where you headed now Dave?
09:48:04 <ynpvisitor61> At aurum
09:48:41 <Casey> Ok Kevin. Walk away from the computer so Aurum will come out to play.
09:48:47 <ynpvisitor61> And now leaving aurum:)
09:49:04 <Eric> Anyone sitting down at F&M?
09:49:15 <Kevin L™> You aren't staying?
09:49:21 <Kevin L™> How did it look?
09:49:33 <Casey> Riverside
09:49:33 <Eric> riverside
09:49:37 <ynpvisitor61> Riverside 1148
09:49:44 <Art> The Geyser Hill Wave I think is what folks call it?
09:50:32 <Eric> daisy
09:51:00 <Casey> Any good references on the Geyser Hill Wave? I've heard it referenced a few times but really know nothing about it.
09:51:12 <ynpvisitor61> 1150 ns
09:51:27 <Eric> 1150 was start
09:53:08 <ynpvisitor61> Dome ie
09:54:44 <ynpvisitor61> Huge crowd for of
09:54:46 <Eric> yep, on static
09:55:00 <Eric> They got rained out of the last one
09:55:45 <Eric> Great Fountain around 18:17 Dave :-)
09:56:45 <ynpvisitor61> Too far from the rock pile!
09:57:05 <ynpvisitor61> Oblong 1156 ie
09:57:16 <ynpvisitor61> Per Brian frs
09:57:39 <Casey> Nice. Points for Eric.
09:57:43 <ynpvisitor63> that looks like chunkier steam from the area
09:58:08 <ynpvisitor63> lingering and drifting much farther now too
09:58:25 <Kevin L™> :)
09:59:21 <ynpvisitor61> Signing off. At cabin. Lunch and then back out
09:59:22 <Eric> Sure....change your toon after you hear confirmation :-P
09:59:30 <Eric> Enjoy Dave
10:00:05 <Eric> OF ie 2
10:02:16 <Casey> So the official position is Oblong wasn't ie when Eric called it, right?
10:03:15 <Kevin L™> It probably was.
10:03:43 <Kevin L™> I think Brian caught the end of it.
10:03:45 <Casey> You're too nice today, Kevin
10:05:16 <ynpvisitor63> so Oblong goes from erupting maybe once per day for months to less than 3 hours?
10:06:32 <Eric> Yes, that seemed insane to me too 63, that is why I was not going to call that oblong without confirmation.
10:07:30 <ynpvisitor63> ;)
10:08:22 <Kevin L™> Same here, but who knows what a geyser is going to do?
10:08:33 <Eric> So now GT prediction has oblong predicted in a couple hours.
10:10:19 <Art> That interval wouldn't be weird last year this time
10:10:46 <Kevin L™> Very true. Maybe it is back to "normal".
10:11:13 <ynpvisitor14> what does "normal" mean anyway?
10:12:20 <Kevin L™> That is why it is in quotes!
10:12:21 <Betty> hi all
10:12:33 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty. You missed it.
10:13:02 <Betty> what?
10:13:19 <Kevin L™> You name it, you missed it!
10:13:39 <Betty> I missed everything
10:13:57 <Kevin L™> Well Aurum is due...
10:14:00 <Betty> when is the prediction for the next everything
10:14:03 <Betty> ?
10:14:36 <Betty> you kidding about Aurum? ;-)
10:14:51 <Casey> February 30
10:15:09 <Betty> hahaha, Casey
10:15:53 <Betty> is that the date for your next salary increase?
10:16:12 <Casey> Ouch. I certainly hope not.
10:16:25 <Betty> :-)
10:17:34 <Betty> still no F&M for Dave and Becca?
10:17:47 <Eric> Nope :-( and hi betty
10:17:56 <Betty> hi Eric
10:18:00 <Eric> They are grabbing some lunch and then back out
10:18:24 <Betty> my ding sounds as it used to, Eric :-)
10:19:14 <Eric> Great
10:19:34 <Eric> That was DaveM's doing...he converted the old flash sound to an mp3 for me
10:19:46 <Eric> Dave Rocks :-D
10:19:49 <Betty> nice
10:34:18 <Betty> Dome ie
10:44:00 <Betty> LC ie
10:49:01 <Betty> hi kc
10:49:16 <Betty> Depression ie?
10:49:43 <kc (working)> howdy
10:49:45 <Betty> yep
10:49:45 <Kevin L™> Great catch!
10:49:54 <Jimbo Plutonium> Waiting for a big slosh
10:50:09 <Jimbo Plutonium> Good one
10:50:41 <Betty> streaming is soo choppy, wonder how I got this one
10:51:33 <Betty> nice bubble
10:51:37 <Eric> Kitt out there waiting for depression :-)
11:24:12 <Kevin L™> F&M event cycle in progress.
11:24:53 <Jimbo Plutonium> looks like rain on the way, too
11:26:11 <Kevin L™> Yep
11:27:34 <Art> Nothing more fun than waiting for F&M in a rain/hail storm and not having a bike :(
11:28:42 <Kevin L™> Dave does have a bike
11:28:56 <Jimbo Plutonium> ooh, entertainment from OF
11:31:30 <Betty> Aurum
11:31:35 <Betty> on static
11:32:03 <Betty> behind OF
11:32:12 <Kevin L™> That stinks!
11:32:56 <Kevin L™> Don't know why Of can manage to block everything else.
11:33:44 <Betty> Glad I saw it
11:34:02 <Kevin L™> Me too.
11:34:57 <Betty> weather looks really ugly
11:37:13 <Kevin L™> Big yellow and orange cell built up in last 15m heading right at Dave.
11:38:45 <Jimbo Plutonium> what site do you look at radar for Yellowstone?
11:39:14 <Kevin L™> http://www.intellicast.com/National/Radar/OneKM.aspx?location=USWY0182&animate=true
11:39:25 <Jimbo Plutonium> Thtx
11:39:29 <Jimbo Plutonium> Thx
11:40:08 <ynpvisitor59> wow,crazy sky
11:40:30 <Kevin L™> Wouldn't surprise me to see them clear the benches for this one.
11:40:43 <Jimbo Plutonium> Systems are moving fast
11:40:59 <ynpvisitor59> is that Park Service trying to clear the bw?
11:41:15 <Kevin L™> This was just small spotty storms at 1250
11:41:54 <ynpvisitor59> the cells are fast and furious
11:42:04 <Art> They're usually pretty good about letting people know about approaching storms
11:42:55 <Eric> That looks ugly coming in
11:43:17 <Eric> Glad they have the bathroom down there to cover in
11:43:22 <Kevin L™> I remember when someone was struck by lightning on the benches. Only had static but ti was crowded one shot and empty the next!
11:44:20 <ynpvisitor80> Off topic, but tomorrow will be 150 days since the last recorded Sawmill eruption
11:44:39 <Betty> :-(
11:44:58 <Kevin L™> Wow.
11:45:01 <Art> I think thats super interesting
11:45:11 <Art> The Sawmill dormancy not the person getting struck by lightning
11:46:19 <Art> Anyone in basin noticed anything lately? When were were there nothing new to report....
11:47:10 <ynpvisitor59> Eric, that outhouse is not exactly a shelter, especially considering people are using it!
11:47:59 <Kevin L™> And most people would prefer to be hit by lightning than to spend time in it.
11:48:08 <Eric> haha :-D
11:48:24 <ynpvisitor59> that is one dark sky
11:48:45 <Eric> Yes, very ugly for 2 in the afternoon
11:48:53 <Kevin L™> Next OF should be great.
11:49:09 <Kevin L™> Love the contrast shots.
11:49:47 <Betty> hope we can see it
11:50:10 <Kevin L™> With this one we may lose power.
11:50:46 <Eric> people out in shorts and flipflops
11:50:59 <Eric> It's 58 degrees!
11:51:08 <Kevin L™> Looks like the worst of it may miss the OF area.
11:51:51 <Eric> Looks like it already cleared West
11:52:05 <Eric> Soaked roads and bright light
11:52:20 <Art> IDK gonna be close
11:52:33 <Eric> Southern Washburn has a cool view
11:52:59 <Kevin L™> Both of them are great.
11:53:35 <ynpvisitor59> the bright is just the camera right now, it is still thunder and lightning in West
11:54:47 <Eric> ahh, looked like it had passed through...thanks 59
11:56:13 <Betty> is this aluminium gas?
11:56:39 <Kevin L™> I bet it is!
11:57:43 <Eric> This is the reason radar is so spotty in yellowstone: https://www.roc.noaa.gov/WSR88D/Images/WSR-88DCONUSCoverage1000.jpg
11:58:04 <Eric> I wonder how intellicast builds those radar loops.
11:58:50 <Kevin L™> Not sure but they are pretty good.
11:59:59 <Eric> Yes, I might email them and see if we can include their data on this page.
12:00:26 <Eric> unlike the noaa stuff which we all own...the intellicast stuff is a private company.
12:02:40 <Kevin L™> They may use some local radars
12:06:46 <Jimbo Plutonium> WOW
12:06:49 <ynpvisitor63> whoa!
12:06:55 <ynpvisitor63> did that hit Split Cone?
12:07:02 <ynpvisitor63> Grand?
12:07:02 <Art> holy crap
12:07:04 <Jimbo Plutonium> Wasn't just bright, it was thick
12:07:23 <ynpvisitor63> can't believe I was watching right then
12:07:26 <ynpvisitor14> what happened? was on another window
12:07:26 <ynpvisitor32> that was amazing
12:07:32 <Art> Sure looked like it hit split cone area
12:07:33 <Betty> did not see it, too choppy
12:07:34 <ynpvisitor63> definitely need a replay
12:07:36 <Jimbo Plutonium> Big lightning bolt
12:07:38 <Kevin L™> Big flashbulb
12:07:38 <ynpvisitor80> I missed it
12:07:44 <Jimbo Plutonium> Cloud to ground
12:07:45 <Art> it looked like it had sparks at the bottom
12:07:50 <Art> and these people are just walking by
12:07:58 <ynpvisitor14> wow! hopefully someone can post a replay
12:07:59 <Jimbo Plutonium> I'd be running for cover
12:08:05 <ynpvisitor63> I saw the bolt come straight down and somewhere between Split Cone and Grand
12:08:09 <ynpvisitor80> I lost my video
12:08:12 <ynpvisitor32> my feed just stopped
12:08:15 <Jimbo Plutonium> Me too
12:08:17 <Eric> power gone
12:08:18 <ynpvisitor63> same
12:08:19 <Art> same
12:08:20 <Kevin L™> yep
12:08:22 <Art> Wonder why ;)
12:08:26 <ynpvisitor14> lol
12:08:30 <Kevin L™> May be power
12:08:37 <Eric> wow...south washburn turned ugly too
12:09:07 <ynpvisitor32> one of the nice benefits of video lag on the chat is that I get a nice 30-45 second warning
12:09:18 <ynpvisitor80> Static cam still updating
12:09:57 <Art> Well can't wait for the 4x day mode video :)
12:10:14 <ynpvisitor80> How do people see aurum on the static cam? Does it happen to line up with the space between those trees on the left?
12:10:36 <Betty> yep
12:10:38 <ynpvisitor63> hopefully one of those frames was captured. pretty incredible
12:11:00 <ynpvisitor80> That static cam angle is tricky
12:11:22 <Eric> controls down?
12:14:46 <Eric> chat down?
12:15:01 <ynpvisitor32> seems to be working (chat)
12:15:02 <Betty> chat is ok :-D
12:15:05 <Art> nope
12:15:11 <Art> chat was not struck by lightning
12:15:26 <Kevin L™> controls are down and power at OF is working.
12:15:47 <Eric> ⚡⚡⚡
12:16:21 <Eric> Man, I hope camera did not get struck!
12:16:32 <Betty> looks like the fountains at the Bellagio :-)
12:17:14 <Kevin L™> Lightning may have tripped the surge protector.
12:17:29 <Betty> ⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡
12:29:29 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
12:32:58 <Eric> Dave broke the webcam :-(
12:33:52 <Kevin L™> We should send him to the photoshop to reboot the computer
12:34:54 <Betty> please don´t! Maybe he tries to sell his keyboards!!!
12:38:11 <Jimbo Plutonium> Wonder if Dave has an onsite lightning report
12:39:24 <Kevin L™> Said two strikes near the cabins
12:41:07 <Kevin L™> Says still lightning in the area so he won't go out to the photo shop and reboot the computer for us.
12:41:20 <Eric> booo
12:42:42 <Eric> lightning strike map: https://www.lightningmaps.org/?lang=en#m=sat;r=0;t=3;s=0;o=0;b=;n=1;y=44.5134;x=-110.772;z=10;d=2;dl=2;dc=0;i=1;
12:43:28 <Eric> looks like the storm has moved over to the lake
12:50:58 <ynpvisitor80> Now would be a good time to switch to the LGB webcam
13:00:07 <ynpvisitor22> I figured Dave had something to do with it. Looks fishy to me.
13:08:18 <Eric> basin looks clear of lightning
13:08:49 <ynpvisitor10> That's what the lightning wants you to think
13:22:46 <Betty> well, headed out then. Night all
13:23:01 <Kevin L™> Night
13:23:13 <ynpvisitor80> Bye Betty. Sorry you didn't get to see more.
14:02:07 <Kevin L™> I am guessing we won't see the cam back today.
14:18:56 <Eric> boo
14:19:17 <Kevin L™> It has been reported.
14:29:25 <Andrew> hello
14:29:34 <Kevin L™> Its dead Andrew
14:29:43 <Kevin L™> Hi
14:31:15 <Andrew> decent event cycle with a gold pause. I think day 9-10 for fan mortar. This is what it did last year with that 9. Consistent event cycles but they were all not producing goo water lvels
14:32:27 <Kevin L™> Storms chasing gazers off too.
14:32:42 <Andrew> yep, turbans being posted though
14:34:37 <Kevin L™> Dave is there now. I am watching radar for him.
14:47:57 <Andrew> hello graham, just in time for grand and a busted camera
14:48:29 <Graham> hum, I see a static image but no stream?
14:48:53 <Graham> looks like a not nice weather day too?
14:49:22 <Kevin L™> Well there were a few lightning strikes before it went dead....
14:49:56 <Graham> guess i have to pack :)
14:50:21 <Graham> isnt Dave there to fix it?
14:51:27 <Graham> just like F&M to have a short interval to get everyone excited and then go cranky
14:53:33 <Andrew> I think it might pull a 9-10 thats my new prediction
14:53:45 <Andrew> maybe it 'thought' it erupted overnight a few days ago
14:55:59 <Kevin L™> We did get two confirmed Oblongs today.
14:56:20 <Graham> yeah probably erupt friday or Sat morning, and then have another one at least a week long, sometime after Sunday 9th
14:57:50 <Andrew> I wonder, I hope it to be erupting 4-5 by the time I get there the 24th
15:00:06 <Graham> later in the year it is usually more reliable ..... maybe in Sept :)
15:00:45 <Andrew> I am in school :) last year was nice but I would like at least one
15:01:49 <Graham> hppe you get it and dont get trapped there too long. at least its not been a vampire geyser like previous years
15:02:14 <Andrew> jim called the mbats
15:02:55 <Andrew> I have bikes this next trip. Dad and I sniped some folding bikes we will be cheking in the plane
15:03:02 <Andrew> so wont be tooo bad
15:05:09 <Graham> the dash down can be a pain but if you get an early start its not bad to walk. i
15:05:26 <Graham> bike is nice for the night-time runs as long as you have light
15:05:51 <Andrew> I will bring the fenix
15:06:19 <Graham> hard to use on the bike tho, but i have one of their headlamps topo
15:06:35 <Andrew> I have a head lamp too
15:06:45 <Andrew> I can run down there pretty fast
15:07:00 <Kevin L™> Run?
15:07:19 <Andrew> yes run
15:07:47 <Andrew> I timed, from the dorm behind the upper store where I lived to artemisia I did 12 minutes
15:08:42 <Graham> good time for getting to Giant
15:08:53 <Kevin L™> 40 years ago I used to run but there was a mean guy wearing green that made a pitbull look tame chasing me.
15:09:54 <Andrew> Ive been chased by dogs running, cant beat them on speed but certainly can on stamin
15:11:28 <Andrew> I figure if giant does anything I can get on the bike and get to grotto
15:13:13 <Graham> or run
15:13:57 <Andrew> altitude will kills you though
15:14:31 <Graham> thats only running back
15:15:05 <Andrew> back to the cabin?
15:15:56 <Graham> up the hill to anywhere
15:16:25 <Graham> i remember one year being at FHM the first day in the park and BHI was called and i went up the BW. made it but it almost killed me
15:17:12 <Andrew> Ive done that few times, not bad when I am young
15:19:30 <Andrew> I also did the reverse run in socks with my pack when a lock was called on a day when we thought it wasnt going to erupt early
15:20:01 <Graham> did they erupt?
15:20:23 <Andrew> yeah I got to liberty pool and saw the poof
15:32:39 <Kevin L™> Reboot didn't work.
16:15:23 <ynpvisitor93> Dave did not fix it. Must still have fish slime on his hands.
16:15:48 <ynpvisitor93> At least ic could have froze with a bolt lf lightning on the screen.
17:13:56 <Kevin L™> Dave says 2 cars were disabled by lightning at OF. Both had to be towed out of the park!
17:41:50 <ynpvisitor86> Holy crap
17:42:13 <ynpvisitor86> I was so surprised to see lightning just strike bare ground
17:42:36 <ynpvisitor86> I'd assumed it would hit trees or the hills around the UGB
17:42:55 <ynpvisitor86> But man is it dangerous to be out in the weather if that's the case
17:43:33 <ynpvisitor86> Hoping the 4x daytime is not corrupted
17:52:23 <Kevin L™> Should be a short video.
18:15:18 <Kevin L™> Wow, snow mix east of Cody!
18:15:32 <Kevin L™> West.
19:17:18 <Dave from 229> You stills haven't fixed the cam ?
20:01:27 <ynpvisitor23> Dave broke it!
