05:04:43 <ynpvisitor111> We does this page keep doing that?...I'm more than a number!:(
05:05:17 <ynpvisitor111> Interesting Grand post this morning
05:30:12 <Art> Low water in pool is interesting, plus Rift stopping
05:44:25 <ynpvisitor111> I saw 9 Grands on our trip....
05:44:46 <ynpvisitor111> 1 time Grand started a minute after Turban...another time Turban started over a minute after Grand
06:45:10 <ynpvisitor111> Morning Kevin
06:53:02 <Kevin L™> Hi triple ones. Thanks for that scan.
06:57:43 <Dave from B> yw
06:58:05 <Kevin L™> How is your Mom doing?
07:03:43 <Dave from B> She is enjoying being at home
07:04:05 <Kevin L™> That always helps
07:06:29 <Dave from B> Any plans for your weekend?
07:11:52 <Kevin L™> Stay out of the heat if possible.
07:14:34 <Dave from B> You get your A/C fized?
07:14:40 <Dave from B> fized*
07:14:45 <Dave from B> fixed**
07:15:28 <Kevin L™> We have the Granddaughter and my wife will be taking her back home tomorrow
07:17:26 <Kevin L™> It is working but I am a bit nervous. They weren't 100% sure what it was but so far so good.
07:18:31 <Dave from B> That's good news...hope it survives your summer
07:23:13 <Kevin L™> I did find out the guy who put the guy that did the unit on my depot is still in town. I thought he had moved to Utah. He is one of those guys you can do a handshake deal with so I will be talking to him.
07:33:47 <Dave from B> That's even better
07:44:30 <Kevin L™> At least if he tells me I need a new unit I can trust him.
08:34:31 <Kevin L™> This one is for you today Jimbo. It is some graffiti artists with way too much time on their hands. Done at the old 3 Kids Mine not far from my house. They mined ore for the Magnesium and Manganese plant built for WWII. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTq-IjiYbic
08:34:51 <Kevin L™> BTW I muted the sound.
08:59:50 <Jimbo Manganese> Impressive work!
09:01:31 <Kevin L™> I spotted it on the assessor's maps the first time I had seen it. That is one deep hole next to it.
09:02:35 <Jimbo Manganese> On this side of the country a lot of the deep quarries get filled with water.
09:14:13 <Kevin L™> This one sometimes has water in it too, but nowhere near filled.
09:19:13 <Kevin L™> OF ie
09:31:29 <ynpvisitor> I find it interesting today we call it graffiti and cover it up, If it was done 1000 years ago it is called rock art and cherished as culturally important.
11:54:00 <ynpvisitor93> Good thing Dave's fish store is not in Ohio. They have big fish eating snakes that are not afraid of people. I don't think they would wait in line to be served.
12:58:59 <ynpvisitor68> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
12:59:56 <Dave from B> Hi, Kevin
13:03:21 <ynpvisitor14> And for yet another day, #000 rules the video player...
13:19:00 <ynpvisitor14> BHCCI is "bubbling well".
13:19:49 <ynpvisitor14> not that we can do anything with this information, but still
13:41:22 <ynpvisitor14> GIANT??!
13:41:37 <ynpvisitor14> Dome ie
13:43:59 <ynpvisitor14> of course it would be nice if Giant is erupting, but a couple of confirmations would be nice
13:45:35 <ynpvisitor14> and if so, it was prone to happen because the webcam is down
13:48:46 <ynpvisitor14> good evening Betty
13:49:05 <Betty> good evening
13:49:24 <Betty> we really had a Giant??
13:49:46 <Betty> bummer the cam is down :-(
13:49:56 <ynpvisitor999> a report showed up @1530
13:50:13 <Betty> and it is from Kitt
13:50:30 <ynpvisitor999> observer is mayt
13:54:31 <ynpvisitor112> I wonder what mayt is
13:54:49 <ynpvisitor999> or who
13:54:54 <Betty> no text was sent...weird
13:54:59 <ynpvisitor112> and how fun is that, if it really happened. No hot periods reported or anything
13:55:08 <Betty> yep
13:55:11 <ynpvisitor112> why would a text be sent?
13:55:21 <ynpvisitor112> everyone knows the cam is down
13:55:44 <Betty> I think Giant is worth a text
13:56:11 <ynpvisitor112> it's usually cam folks that send the texts Betty
13:56:25 <ynpvisitor112> cannot think of any gazer there that would send one
13:56:36 <Betty> yeah, think you´re right
13:56:41 <ynpvisitor999> are there any geysers that have a name which could be misunderstood for 'Giant'?
13:56:59 <Betty> Giantess, lol
13:57:25 <ynpvisitor112> they are all on a list on GT app, so it would have been one close in spelling
13:58:18 <ynpvisitor112> too bad NPS did not restart the down basin static cam with the stream off
14:00:54 <ynpvisitor999> hopefully more Giants follow this year
14:01:24 <Betty> hopefully in 6 weeks :-)
14:07:08 <ynpvisitor999> OF ie OFVEC
14:11:17 <Kevin L™> That is indeed strange. I would blow it off but with Kitt entering it I don't know.
14:11:36 <Kevin L™> Sure will be nice to get the cam back.
14:11:57 <ynpvisitor999> Hopefully electronic data will be made available soon
14:12:38 <Kevin L™> If any of you are hot, my neighborhood weather station is reporting 121° right now. That is hot even for me!
14:16:37 <Betty> hi Kevin
14:16:40 <ynpvisitor999> anyone baking eggs on the sidewalks yet?
14:17:20 <Betty> ouch! stay cool
14:19:20 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty. The news did cook a steak and a pizza on a car dashboard. Eggs come out of the chickens hard boiled!
14:19:53 <Betty> hahaha
14:20:25 <ynpvisitor999> basically free heat for cooking
14:20:27 <Kevin L™> I know the interior temp of my van was over 140° degrees when I left work many times in weather not this hot.
14:21:39 <ynpvisitor999> Grotto 1617? is that even possible with a Giant eruption?
14:22:13 <Kevin L™> A big thanks to Willis Carrier and Philo T Farnsworth today!
14:22:52 <Kevin L™> With geysers, ANYTHING is possible! Add a nearby 5.8 EQ and who knows what will go on.
14:23:47 <Betty> was wondering if the quake is involved
14:24:01 <ynpvisitor999> Archer is now at the Grotto and Giant group, maybe he could confirm Giant
14:24:33 <Betty> Archer is a she
14:24:44 <ynpvisitor999> my bad...
14:24:47 <ynpvisitor999> she*
14:24:55 <Betty> ;-)
14:26:45 <ynpvisitor999> maybe I should just use (s)he in the future...
14:29:59 <Betty> same happened to me with Casey, I made a she out of him...(still feel sorry for that mistake)
14:30:35 <Betty> I think Kevin is a he :-)
14:35:12 <Betty> Kitt changed observer to matt
14:35:44 <ynpvisitor62> Kevin is probably a puddle now.
14:37:27 <ynpvisitor49> Well that spices up my trip in two weeks
14:37:45 <Andrew> now we just need fan and mortar as well
14:37:48 <Betty> hi Andrew
14:38:00 <Andrew> hi
14:38:03 <Andrew> Im so excited now
14:38:55 <Betty> I can relate, 6 weeks for me
14:39:37 <Andrew> Fan and mortar and giant could erupt...or not
14:41:45 <Betty> Mastiff up to 40 feet
14:43:09 <Andrew> Graham was at fountain
14:43:26 <Andrew> Next year or graham...DONT GO TO FOUNTAIN IN JULY
14:43:50 <Betty> bummer
14:44:11 <Andrew> last year he went to norris and then we got fan and mortar
14:45:13 <Betty> :-)
14:48:17 <ynpvisitor999+1> so it was a Giant... Who to blame for the webcam not working?
14:48:28 <Andrew> Zues?
14:48:59 <Betty> Giant interval shortens from almost 6 years to less than 2 years
14:49:11 <Andrew> *slow clap*
14:49:22 <Betty> hehehe
14:49:53 <Andrew> In all seriousness it was acting weiird when i was there
14:50:28 <ynpvisitor999+1> Maybe this eruption marks the beginning of an active period
14:50:38 <Andrew> I doubt t
14:51:10 <Andrew> I mean maybe, Im no authority but oblong and grotto are not cooperating in that department
14:53:22 <ynpvisitor999+1> I expect to see some videos on YouTube proving that ''
14:53:46 <ynpvisitor999+1> Yellowstone is about to erupt based on this Giant eruption
14:54:05 <Andrew> the last active period had short oblong intervals and frequent and long marathons
14:54:11 <Andrew> neither of that is happenong
15:00:44 <Betty> time to head out. Night all
15:20:10 <Kevin L™> I did get an in field confirmation on Giant from Graham.
15:39:38 <ynpvisitor87> GIANT- wow!!!
15:58:55 <ynpvisitor44> Very Cool to hear about Giant! Of course it chose to go when our beloved webcam is down
16:23:47 <kcmule> very cool
16:24:58 <kcmule> 1y 283d 10h 27m, sure beats the 5 year previous interval
17:11:13 <ynpvisitor75> Just came here to say OMG Gian
17:11:15 <ynpvisitor75> Giant
17:13:52 <ynpvisitor11> So is Giant going, or just Mastiff?
17:14:04 <ynpvisitor11> Dave has great timing.
17:16:12 <ynpvisitor75> Mastiff's interval 9y 141d 5h 1m
17:16:15 <ynpvisitor75> Thats insane
17:46:08 <ynpvisitor21> Mastiff looked like it may have erupted during the 2015 eruption but no way to be certain on the webcam view.
17:48:36 <ynpvisitor75> Sorry meant Mastiff hasn't been "seen" by a person in 9 years
17:49:03 <ynpvisitor75> Like if a tree falls in the woods does it make a sound sorta way ;)
17:49:33 <ynpvisitor11> So back to my question. GT does not help. Is it just Mastiff, or Giant also?
17:50:03 <ynpvisitor75> Mastiff was seen ie
17:50:10 <ynpvisitor75> and then almost immediately after Giant started
17:50:24 <ynpvisitor11> Thanks.
17:50:34 <ynpvisitor75> Duration of 61 minutes
17:50:40 <ynpvisitor75> Graham has a picture on his FB
