04:02:05 <Betty> think Lion is ie
04:41:28 <Betty> OF
04:42:41 <ynpvisitor107> bhi logged on GT via webcam?
04:43:17 <Betty> ? I see that?
04:43:18 <Graham> and Grand
04:43:27 <Graham> and Grand
04:43:39 <Betty> hmmm
04:44:22 <Betty> morning Graham
04:44:58 <Betty> I think Grand is correct, because it was Jim :-)
04:47:39 <Graham> hard to see, could be going
04:48:10 <Graham> going to send text
04:48:23 <Betty> I don´t see it
04:49:39 <Betty> no indy
04:50:11 <Graham> i dont know how you can tell
04:50:17 <ynpvisitor999> can't see no Indy
04:50:37 <Betty> it is in front of the sign , and it is not ie
04:51:14 <ynpvisitor999> morning everyone
04:51:29 <Graham> morning 999
04:51:44 <Betty> morning DGInc and joethermop
04:52:11 <Joe thermop> Morning
04:52:35 <Betty> definitely no indy
04:52:45 <ynpvisitor999> the only thing I can see in Beehive's general area, is passively steaming Beehive
04:53:29 <Graham> hard to tell on the cam
04:53:36 <Betty> I flagged the entry
04:53:51 <ynpvisitor999> I tried to, but eruption was already deleted
04:53:55 <Betty> can you zoom in?
04:55:18 <Graham> i see Grand did another 5 eruptions in 24 h, it has a chance for 5 today
05:04:21 <Betty> I think the 0330 entry of OF is not correct as well
05:05:30 <ynpvisitor999> I have the overnight captures in a tab, we'll see
05:10:38 <Betty> OF was 0349
05:13:36 <ynpvisitor60> Welcome Andrew
05:13:49 <Andrew> Just to cofitm, the indicator was not ie. Jim called it on the radio and I sprinted out from my cabin. I and at least one other confirmed it was not ie and called it. I flagged the post and I guess someone else flagged it itok so it was gone
05:13:51 <ynpvisitor999> morning Andew
05:13:56 <ynpvisitor999> Andrew*
05:14:27 <ynpvisitor999> OF 0330 flagged and deleted
05:14:39 <Andrew> Morning DG? 999=DG?
05:14:50 <ynpvisitor999> yes
05:15:00 <Betty> morning Andrew
05:15:29 <ynpvisitor999> 0349 was likely a short, AFAIK visibly done by 0351
05:15:34 <Andrew> Never met you
05:16:18 <Betty> the new cam is way not as good at night as the old was
05:16:47 <ynpvisitor999> grayscale is not one of the greatest of things at night
05:17:01 <Betty> how long will you sttay in the Park, Andrew?
05:17:01 <Andrew> I will be at beehive shortly
05:17:12 <Betty> Lion ie
05:17:37 <Andrew> until Wednesday, hoping for one more fan and mortar
05:18:03 <Betty> bummer, so we don´t meet. I arrive 17th
05:18:43 <Betty> Depression ie?
05:18:56 <Betty> steam in runoff
05:18:58 <Andrew> bummer I know. I really wanted to meet up with Dave and becca again that was fun last tear
05:19:36 <Andrew> My dad and I both got a kick out of Kevin
05:22:00 <ynpvisitor999> I couldn't see Castle or Aurum on the overnight captures. In Castle's case it was too steamy, in Aurum's too dark
05:22:25 <Betty> same here
05:22:43 <Betty> I hope DaveM can see more
05:23:34 <ynpvisitor97> I miss the other view at night!!
05:23:47 <ynpvisitor999> I hope either DaveM can see them or E times
05:25:19 <Andrew> Dara loggers have been really all over the place these past few days
05:25:55 <Andrew> a kid ripped the Daisy logget out from the boardwalk a few days ago and I had to bring the ligget back to the v c
05:26:07 <Graham> good luck with F&M, intervals are making it hard to watch i bet. You have seen 2?
05:27:14 <Graham> F&M would be a steambath now
05:27:35 <Andrew> 1 from the start
05:27:37 <Andrew> 1 ie
05:28:06 <Andrew> I saw an event cycle yesterday at 2.5. Does not seem close. Needed at least 2 days to maybe 4-5
05:28:08 <Betty> these are two more than I ever had :-p
05:28:58 <Graham> it is early, but longer than the last interval so all bets are off
05:29:43 <Andrew> You will get it betty
05:30:04 <Andrew> If you are willing to get down there early in the morning if you can it really helps
05:30:23 <Andrew> threading the interval needle is tricky though
05:30:40 <Betty> last year I did for 3 days, then it went overnight
05:30:50 <Graham> and they dont go at night ..... they have been good so far this year. i have had a 2 week trip where 3 of 4 eruptions have been at night
05:32:15 <Graham> they were regular enough that nightwatch was out there so I saw them all
05:32:40 <Graham> too hard to watch at night with the currrent interval range
05:38:04 <Betty> got to go, bbl
05:38:14 <ynpvisitor999> bye Betty
06:08:07 <Graham> i flagged bettys Depression eruption based on Barbaras report
06:13:49 <ynpvisitor104> Daisy
06:16:34 <ynpvisitor104> .
06:18:53 <joe thermop> Fluff
06:53:45 <joe thermop> Lion
06:54:28 <joe thermop> that was a short interval
06:55:58 <joe thermop> cant make up its mind
06:56:19 <ynpvisitor104> strange Lion
07:03:57 <Graham> not on GT, didnt happen :)
07:04:31 <Graham> oh, there it is, never mind
07:04:44 <joe thermop> :)
07:05:17 <Graham> the previous one was a minor too, so not unusual interval under those conditions
07:07:17 <ynpvisitor101> Lots of folks at BH
07:07:56 <Kevin L™> I would be one of them if I was there.
07:08:15 <joe thermop> me too!
07:09:11 <ynpvisitor101> I'd probably lurk at Aurum until indy
07:09:53 <Graham> too early for Aurum tho
07:09:59 <Kevin L™> I normally would but with the comment on Aurum today I think I would be at BH.
07:10:26 <ynpvisitor101> Didn't see the note
07:11:03 <Graham> 5 intervals between 13 and 14h will get people there ... may not be many left if it goes on and on
07:11:08 <ynpvisitor101> Big cloud to the right of Grand
07:11:17 <Graham> Grotto
07:12:34 <Graham> looks like ranger group moving on
07:12:47 <ynpvisitor101> That explains the crowd ;)
07:23:28 <Jake> today's the kind of day when Beehive waits until noon
07:25:08 <Kevin L™> it will be about 1030
07:40:25 <joe thermop> Lion ie
07:42:27 <Graham> looks like about 20 gazers there
07:43:26 <Graham> at least BH is in its window now
07:43:50 <Graham> and noon is still in its GT window Jake
08:13:32 <Dave from B> Alright, come clean:D Who gave me the double wake up call this morning?
08:16:13 <Jake> guess I missed OF
08:17:49 <Graham> that was me dave ... OF was erupting to obscure the view, wouldnt have seen BH much anyway. figured it was better to send text and be wrong than not to send it and be wrong
08:18:59 <Dave from B> It's no problem. It was time to get up anyway. Time to walk the dogs
08:19:49 <Dave from B> Time to hit the BHI button
08:21:13 <Kevin L™> Another 10m Dave
08:25:33 <Graham> its going to wait for Grand
08:34:38 <Dave from B> How about a sub 5 hour Grand for some real excitement?
08:41:13 <Dave from B> Turban?
08:41:50 <Dave from B> Might be Spasmodic drift
08:45:38 <ynpvisitor51> Close to cone at beehive is nuts rn
08:46:19 <Andrew> As much as any bubbler can
08:46:31 <Dave from B> Hi, Andrew
08:46:50 <Andrew> Hi
08:47:16 <Andrew> water in inducator
08:47:22 <Graham> nice
08:47:34 <Dave from B> Here we go
08:47:35 <Graham> who is sending the next text?
08:47:47 <Andrew> bhi 1047
08:47:48 <Dave from B> Third time the charm?:D
08:48:05 <Graham> ok, will send
08:48:11 <Dave from B> Use your sense of humor, Graham...You'll think of something!
08:49:22 <Graham> over 15h interval though, its broken
08:49:46 <Andrew> Can you xheck Daisy?
08:49:54 <Dave from B> Everything is going to go at once?
08:50:02 <Dave from B> Yes on Daisy
08:50:59 <Graham> this would be very early for Grand
08:54:07 <joe thermop> .
08:54:08 <joe thermop> .
08:54:24 <joe thermop> BHI ie
08:54:42 <Dave from B> Morning joe . . thanks for letting us know!:D
08:55:45 <Dave from B> That's kind of harsh
08:56:00 <joe thermop> yea
08:56:37 <joe thermop> i was dozing and did not hear the Dings :)
08:56:42 <lc> hey everybody
08:56:59 <Dave from B> Hi, lc! Haven't "seen" you for awhile
08:57:31 <lc> I do check in from time to time
08:57:47 <Dave from B> I figured you've been lurking:)
08:57:55 <lc> has Kitt gone home?
08:58:08 <Graham> she was home for last nights BH
08:58:34 <lc> thanks, I thought she was leaving yesterday.
08:59:08 <lc> Graham, when do you get back to the park?
08:59:31 <Graham> 4 weeks, 2 Sept
08:59:42 <Graham> less than 4 weeks :)
08:59:55 <lc> we get there 8/31
09:00:22 <Graham> nice. is the eclipse far from you?
09:00:42 <lc> little north
09:01:12 <lc> maybe 40 - 50 miles
09:01:28 <Graham> you going to go there or just see the 90%+ at home?
09:01:49 <lc> probably stay home
09:02:29 <Kitt> woke up 20 minutes ago LC
09:02:54 <lc> hey Kitt
09:03:30 <Kitt> crawled off to bed at 2:35 pm yesterday and crashed
09:04:03 <lc> bet you need a rest.
09:04:12 <Kitt> Donnie and Betty are headed home
09:04:52 <lc> Scott leave today?
09:04:54 <Dave from B> That's a crowd
09:05:04 <Kitt> no, after Bee last night
09:05:11 <lc> is Chris still there?
09:05:36 <lc> I didn't know he was coming back so soon.
09:05:39 <Kitt> Chris and Ann were still there, don't remember when they leave
09:07:41 <Dave from B> wow
09:07:52 <Dave from B> Hope wind direction doesn't change
09:08:17 <Kitt> Beehive
09:08:47 <Dave from B> still waiting
09:08:47 <lc> would be better from the BW.
09:08:51 <Dave from B> there we go
09:08:53 <Kitt> I want the wind direction to change
09:09:35 <lc> maybe Grand will get to 4.5 hr intervals in 3 weeks.
09:12:17 <lc> make that 535 he Grand interval.
09:12:28 <lc> 5.5
09:13:02 <Kitt> Heinrich and Suzanne got 4 Grands in one day
09:14:19 <Graham> chance for 5 Grands today
09:14:47 <Dave from B> Check out 2 Grand eruptinos today and the interval between them...5:59 or 6:00?
09:15:54 <Graham> needs 3 intervals to oull back by 42min under 18h - thats doable
09:17:09 <Jake> good eye, Dave, not sure what's going on with GT interval calculations
09:18:28 <lc> close enough for Gov. work.
09:19:22 <Graham> oh we have to question all the data ..... arggg
09:19:44 <Dave from B> haha Graham.
09:20:01 <Graham> are heinricks times going in with seconds?
09:20:12 <Dave from B> I would love to see shortest Grand interval in last 100...under 5:41
09:20:32 <ynpvisitor999> OF
09:20:43 <ynpvisitor999> not?
09:21:23 <Graham> Jake can change the calculation to say that Dave
09:21:35 <ynpvisitor999> odd, usually this big preplay triggers an eruption
09:22:28 <Graham> lots of odd things today ... OF not erupting, false BHI, and false Dep
09:23:02 <Dave from B> Eclipse related changes already?
09:23:05 <lc> got to be the smoke.
09:25:05 <Graham> so doesnt BH Close to cone going nuts count as an eruption ie?
09:26:23 <ynpvisitor15> I would think so but perhaps he doesn't know what an eruption looks like. Was nuts just boiling or was it 3 feet. I was a terrible entry.
09:27:03 <Graham> or bubbling
09:27:23 <Graham> maybe he was just too excited, just like when F&M erupt
09:28:31 <ynpvisitor999> Andrew submitted a BHCCI on May 31st, so he apparently does know how an eruption looks like. Perhaps BHCCI was bubbling heavily this time
09:30:52 <Dave from B> Have a great day everyone! Time to go home
09:31:15 <lc> have a good one Dave
09:34:30 <lc> had a hard time getting started.
09:34:36 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1133
09:35:54 <ynpvisitor999> short
09:35:58 <lc> that was short
09:36:25 <ynpvisitor999> counted 143s of eruption time, including pre-eruptive spouting
10:10:52 <Graham> more fun, now we have a Turbine time :)
10:28:20 <lc> long Turban interval
10:31:14 <Graham> I think Turbine was 1207
10:31:28 <Graham> but its been deleted and not replaced with a Turban time
10:31:45 <Graham> there it is now
10:32:59 <Graham> Guess Grand doesnt want to have 5 eruptions today, at least its not trying very hard, this will be over 6h
10:39:05 <joe thermop> OF
10:42:28 <ynpvisitor15> cam op needs to leave. No cam op until at least 1500 unless someone else jumps in.
10:42:53 <ynpvisitor3> I see Turban 1207
10:43:21 <ynpvisitor3> Sorry. My window was scrolled up and I didn't realize it, so I was reading 10m old comments
10:52:29 <Graham> no Grand ... its going to be 6.5h at least now
11:12:03 <Graham> Turban
11:12:15 <Graham> posted quickly, low water?
11:12:55 <Graham> daisy
11:15:13 <lc> going for 7 hrs
11:16:03 <Graham> making it unlikely to have a chance for 5 tomorrow too
11:16:17 <lc> yep
11:16:45 <lc> your record is safe for w while.
11:17:51 <ynpvisitor94> Graham was present at all 5 Grands, not sure anyone is doing that now
11:18:19 <Graham> Heinrick is probably at them all - I only did it one day
11:18:47 <ynpvisitor94> yours were all within the same calendar date, that is not the case now, right?
11:19:09 <Graham> there were quite a few 5 Grand days then, maybe 10?
11:19:26 <lc> was working on it before this one.
11:20:09 <lc> that was 5 in 24 hrs. right Graham?
11:20:34 <Graham> its had several runs of 5 in 24h but then it throws in a longer one. when i saw it every 24h had 5 eruptions, they were all under 6h
11:21:11 <Graham> not quite that short now
11:21:51 <Graham> about every 4 or 5 days they lined up to get 5 in a day
11:22:56 <lc> I didn't remember that many 5 eruption days.
11:23:32 <Graham> it went on for almost 2 months I think
11:23:35 <lc> but that was about 3 years ago.
11:23:54 <Graham> 2012, 5 years ago :)
11:24:30 <lc> wow, didn't think it was that long ago.
11:25:18 <ynpvisitor94> time flies
11:26:09 <lc> and the memory goes also.
11:29:05 <lc> probably go on this next Turban.
11:29:36 <ynpvisitor94> gazing years blend together
11:29:53 <lc> for sure.
11:30:36 <lc> what year did we go up to Steamboat?
11:30:45 <Graham> turban and no Grand
11:31:00 <Graham> 2014
11:31:13 <Graham> 2013 was Morning, 2015 was Ledge
11:31:27 <lc> that would habe been my guess.
11:31:53 <ynpvisitor94> 5 hour Grands the year before 2012
11:31:55 <Graham> there was a steamboat in 2013 also but not when i was there
11:32:20 <Graham> maybe this is an indicator for Morning next year :)
11:32:50 <ynpvisitor94> except for Fountain's 4 hour intervals...yet who knows?
11:33:48 <lc> we only went to LGB one time, was a madhouse around Midway.
11:34:44 <ynpvisitor94> that section gets crazy for sure
11:35:38 <Betty> good afternoon all
11:36:00 <lc> hey Betty
11:36:31 <ynpvisitor94> Grand has been waiting for you Betty
11:36:32 <Betty> hi lc, how are you :-)
11:36:55 <lc> very good thanks, you?
11:36:59 <Betty> thx, 94
11:37:51 <lc> I'm giving it one more Turban.
11:38:03 <Betty> excitement is rising, 11 days to the Park
11:38:14 <lc> probably going to be a 3b.
11:38:48 <Betty> I´ll buy a 3b
11:39:09 <lc> going to miss you by about 7 to 10 days.
11:39:21 <Betty> bummer
11:39:41 <Betty> you go for Labour day?'
11:39:52 <lc> yes
11:40:42 <Betty> I have good memories of the cheese and wine 2 years ago
11:41:18 <lc> we missed that one.
11:41:59 <lc> had more important things going on at that time.
11:43:13 <Betty> yes, I remeber. Good that everything is better now
11:43:49 <lc> yes, turned out good. so far.
11:45:39 <ynpvisitor94> Grand is over 7 hours
11:46:10 <Betty> bah. It knows Dave is coming
11:47:46 <lc> yea
11:48:22 <ynpvisitor94> Nice start
11:48:32 <Betty> boom
11:49:23 <Betty> my view is gone
11:49:55 <lc> ok here
11:49:56 <ynpvisitor94> that is not good, you must be on delay too
11:51:19 <Betty> it´s back now, but only frames
11:52:32 <ynpvisitor94> that is so frustrating. Feed is fine here
11:54:59 <lc> interesting, they changed Grand window to 2 hre.
11:57:32 <lc> better pause soon
11:57:51 <Graham> get ready for a long pause
11:58:04 <lc> funny
11:58:19 <lc> about 6 hrs?
11:58:34 <Graham> i think so
11:58:58 <ynpvisitor94> I don't think there have been two longer ones in a row
11:59:00 <lc> Ithink that was under 10 min, hard to tell.
11:59:51 <Larry in Denver> Good afternoon names and numbers
12:00:14 <lc> afternoon
12:00:20 <Betty> hi Larry
12:01:09 <Larry in Denver> On my one month countdown to being at OF
12:02:12 <lc> 25 days here
12:02:21 <Graham> Longest single interval since 12 July, 90 intervals ago
12:03:11 <lc> sure hope it comes back under 6 hrs
12:03:31 <Larry in Denver> I'll be there Labor Day. Planning several adventures with Rocco.
12:04:34 <lc> like F&M?
12:05:22 <Larry in Denver> I hope. Last year it went at night after I left but he saw quite a few in 2016
12:07:04 <lc> taking a break here. bbl.
12:50:37 <Betty> LC ie
13:01:51 <Betty> ah, Lone Star preset works
13:09:17 <Larry in Denver> Lone Star?
13:10:26 <ynpvisitor3> It's a joke. I'm assuming the camera panned far to the right, so she joked about it pointing at Lone Star (which clearly is not visible from this distance).
13:11:36 <Larry in Denver> OK, got it. (I though she meant Solitary.)
13:12:31 <Larry in Denver> Since we are on the subject of jokes, what is meant when someone posts "fuzzy" ???
13:14:05 <ynpvisitor3> Several people refer to Old Faithful as "Fluffy", particularly when there's little window so it is surrounded by steam.
13:15:10 <Larry in Denver> My education continues. I see we have two slackers on the benches taking naps.
13:15:14 <ynpvisitor3> It sometimes gets used to describe eruptions by other geysers as well when all you really see is the steam instead of the water
13:17:49 <Larry in Denver> My stream is particularly good today with few jerks
13:20:33 <Betty> I did not pay attention for some minutes. #3 pointed it out correctly, cam was moved and the back of the tree was in sight. A few days ago someone said Lone Star was due, and camop turned the cam right in that direction it was a few min ago :-)
13:22:23 <Larry in Denver> I guess I need to get on here every day and read the chat history to keep my education up to date
13:35:13 <kcmule> daisy
13:35:23 <Betty> Daisy
13:35:35 <Betty> hi kcmule
13:35:43 <Graham> hi kc ... are you ready for some football?
13:36:44 <kcmule> hello
13:37:05 <ynpvisitor100> we will have monday night partys w/Hank Willams Jr
13:38:03 <Graham> except the games are too late for me
13:39:06 <kcmule> got tix for home opener so i guess i'm all set
13:41:01 <Graham> yeah
13:41:15 <Betty> SC
13:43:53 <Graham> i will be rooting for Giant that day, not the Giants
13:44:10 <Graham> and not the Jets
13:46:36 <kcmule> sound advice for most days
13:47:38 <Graham> DBroncos at Redskins on Christmas eve, nice I should get to see it in Denver
13:52:08 <Graham> you get to beat up on the Broncos too
13:55:17 <kcmule> OF
14:58:54 <Graham> what was erupting there?
14:59:15 <kcmule> oblong i guess
15:38:46 <kcmule> OF
15:51:29 <kcmule> castle ie
15:52:17 <kcmule> 1751 start gt
16:10:24 <kcmule> daisy
16:13:46 <ynpvisitor48> Can confirm oblong
16:14:03 <Andrew> Visitor report+FRS call
16:14:16 <Graham> ty
16:14:18 <Andrew> just talked to som people who saw oblong
16:14:52 <Andrew> I haven't seen oblong this year
16:15:02 <Graham> been a while since it had been reported
16:15:08 <Andrew> last year was 50-60 eruptions
16:16:54 <Andrew> Been a better fan and mortar year for me
16:17:50 <Graham> well thats good. its been a better F&M year for me than the last few and I have only seen one so far
16:18:36 <Graham> hope it gets into a regular pattern in the next few weeks
16:19:05 <Andrew> As in more fan and mortars than grotto fountain and oblong combined
16:20:01 <Graham> haha pretty much. think i may have seen them in the winter but thats a long time ago now
16:25:14 <Graham> i at least saw a few Oblong eruptions from Grand in Jan but no Grotto Ftn eruptions
16:27:56 <Graham> I guess my claim to fame is having seen Sawmill this year :)
16:29:44 <Andrew> In order my favorite geysers are oblong, grotto fountain, fan and mortar
16:29:47 <Graham> last was 29 Jan on GT just before i left
16:29:57 <Andrew> Bad year for my favorites

16:30:27 <Andrew> last year was like 15 grotto fountains. 50-60 oblongs, 7 fan and mortars
16:30:45 <Graham> 7 F&M is an amazing year
16:30:50 <Andrew> this year is 1 fountain 0oblong 1.5 fan and mortars
16:31:23 <Graham> and you dont have as many hours in the basin this year
16:31:53 <Graham> i need F&M this winter

16:38:49 <Graham> lots of gazers there for Labor Day
16:39:45 <Graham> i think its the busiest weekend for gazers
