04:16:24 <ynpvisitor45> OF
04:47:58 <ynpvisitor4> Daisy
04:54:26 <Dave from B> Tragic loss of history in Glacier last evening...Sperry Park Chalet burned down in the Sprague Fire
04:59:05 <ynpvisitor103> Sad
05:03:00 <joe> Lion
05:04:36 <Dave from B> I'm glad so many got to see F&M last night
05:13:21 <joe> Glad they got t, sad it did not wait for you Dave
05:13:45 <joe> t= it*
05:15:03 <Dave from B> It would have to wait until Late June for me...missing Cheese and Wine weekend this year
05:16:28 <joe> Ah, got to take care of the business.
05:27:12 <Dave from B> Yep...and it has been a tough summer with being shorthanded at work
05:27:45 <Dave from B> Finally at full staff for the first time since May...and I love the crew we have right now
05:45:33 <Dave from B> OF ie
05:46:25 <Dave from B> We should get a BH this morning
05:57:08 <Jimbo Barium> A second flood, A simple famine plagues of locusts everywhere or a cataclysmic earthquake I'd accept with some despair but no you send us congress good God sir was that fair?
06:01:38 <joe> We all did it.
06:04:36 <joe> We voted everyone of those congressionals in, over and over again. what are we thinking, or not.
06:05:42 <Jimbo Barium> My '1776' quote was more inspired by the floods and fires than criticism of Congress -- just seemed appropriate
06:06:11 <joe> Very
06:13:36 <joe> Well off to physical therapy I'll miss BH :(
06:16:22 <Dave from B> Maybe it will wait for you
06:16:56 <Dave from B> Jimbo, did your daughter graduate or is she still in high school?
06:17:24 <Jimbo Barium> Oldest just started college, younger still in HS
06:17:47 <Dave from B> Where is oldest going? I'm assuming she is a Chemistry major?:)
06:18:06 <Jimbo Barium> U. Maryland, biochemistry
06:22:41 <Dave from B> Nice! How far is that from home?
06:23:07 <Jimbo Barium> 25 miles - less than that from where I work
06:25:23 <Dave from B> Does she live on campus or at home?
06:26:13 <Jimbo Barium> On campus. It's a little dorm village, feels like a small area at a big school
06:26:24 <Jimbo Barium> BTW, I'll probably be in Portland in February
06:27:23 <Dave from B> Nice on both posts
06:27:52 <Dave from B> What do you do again?
06:32:42 <Dave from B> Lion ie
06:33:49 <Dave from B> I'm willing to bet LC is sitting at Lion
06:51:07 <Jimbo Barium> Hey Dave, sorry for the break. I do oceanographic remote sensing and education
06:57:57 <Dave from B> For the governement or a private firm?
06:58:14 <Jimbo Barium> Both (contractor)
06:59:40 <Dave from B> Do you design equipment for others to use?
07:03:12 <Eric> Morning
07:03:33 <Eric> That is cool stuff Jimbo...didn't know you worked in that field :-)
07:03:48 <Jimbo Barium> Nope, I'm a researcher, not an engineer (and a writer)
07:03:54 <Jimbo Barium> I do a lot of writing
07:04:42 <Jimbo Barium> I was a chemistry undergrad, dissolved shells in the deep ocean for grad school, and got into satellites after that
07:10:47 <Jake> the image looks very blue tinted his morning
07:11:31 <Eric> Agree...hazy too
07:11:45 <Dave from B> Nice, Jimbo...sounds like a great field
07:11:49 <Dave from B> Morning Eric and Jake
07:12:16 <Dave from B> Winds in Mt made my house smell like a campfire this morning
07:12:26 <Jimbo Barium> It's fun -- my Portland trip is for an oceanography meeting; I'd like to see more waterfalls in the gorge, but weather is obviously iffy
07:12:49 <Dave from B> For those of you who din't read the log earlier...historic Sperry Chalet destroyed by fire yesterday evening
07:13:06 <Dave from B> When are you headed to Portland?
07:17:18 <Jimbo Barium> February
07:23:17 <Eric> Morning Kevin
07:23:43 <Eric> February is a great time to see the gorge waterfalls Jimbo....The ice formations are incredible
07:24:12 <Eric> Sometimes a little tricky to get to though.
07:24:40 <Kevin L™> Morning
07:25:41 <Dave from B> Yeah, Feb probably not a good time to be hiking in the gorge
07:26:14 <Dave from B> Eric, I didn't realize waterfalls froz in Oregon
07:30:32 <Jake> Did anyone comment on NPS Director's Order #100? It was rescinded
07:36:36 <Dave from B> Not me
07:42:05 <Kevin L™> I wonder if that covered putting your feet on the ground at Oblong.
07:46:01 <Jake> sure, the Precautionary Principle would potentially cover all human activity
07:46:32 <ynpvisitor103> what does that mean, Jake- bottom line
07:46:39 <Kevin L™> Can we say Pocket Basin here?
07:49:58 <Jake> there was a section of this Order that would universally adopt a management practice of closing areas without public comment, whether or not there is damage being done to resources, only if there might be damage to resources
07:51:05 <Jake> a shoot first ask questions later kind of policy. Yellowstone NPS is already well down this path but this would have made it the official NPS way of doing things
07:53:19 <Kevin L™> Never a good method.
07:54:39 <ynpvisitor103> "no explanation" for rescinding.
07:55:30 <Ryan> Looks nicer there than here
07:56:03 <Kevin L™> You dealing with Harvey?
07:56:13 <Ryan> Starting to for the next few days
07:56:24 <Ryan> Mostly the next 24hrs
07:56:48 <Dave from B> A weird question for everyone......
07:57:25 <Dave from B> If a big hurricane hits, is there a big droppage in new parents using that name for their child in that region?
07:57:26 <ynpvisitor23> How long till Bees?
07:58:18 <Kevin L™> I would suspect it would for that region Dave.
07:58:23 <Dave from B> Be in the next 90
08:00:40 <ynpvisitor23> I am hoping in the next half hour
08:01:16 <Dave from B> 23, you may be right
08:01:23 <ynpvisitor23> People being people and having short memories, I would think the name would stick and be used.
08:05:16 <Jake> here you go Dave. Type 'Katrina' female into this:
08:05:36 <Kevin L™> Grand
08:06:01 <Jake> or here's the page to select a longer time range:
08:09:27 <Jimbo Barium> Saw somewhere that a new baby born on August 21 was named "Eclipse". Her mom's name is Freedom. I would have gone with something more creative, like "Corona" or "Diamond" (diamond ring effect)
08:09:54 <Jimbo Barium> If they named her Corona people might think they named her after a beer
08:10:11 <Dave from B> Definitely a drop in Katrina usage
08:10:29 <Kevin L™> I think it is cruel to give kids weird names.
08:10:47 <Dave from B> I agree Kevin. Name is much more imopoirtant than people realize
08:10:59 <Ryan> Friend of mine named her daughter Stella. Everyone thinks its for the beer (including the daughter) but its actually from my friend's favorite brand of carbide lamp.
08:11:33 <ynpvisitor23> Thought maybe a movie fan.
08:12:31 <Kevin L™> The founder of the Learjet named his daughter Shanda. Now that one is cute.
08:12:49 <Kevin L™> Was that a 2nd?
08:12:50 <Mike J> Frabjous Day! I just booked it, and I'll be visiting the park in two weeks! the 12th through the 15th
08:13:06 <Kevin L™> Nice cool down.
08:13:56 <Kevin L™> It didn't look like a pause but it was a tall burst.
08:22:43 <Kevin L™> G1Q, Guess it wasn't a 2nd.
08:29:24 <Dave from B> Is Betty holding the button today?
08:30:22 <Kevin L™> She flies out this afternoon so she is probably packing.
08:32:10 <Betty> Talking about me?
08:32:32 <Kevin L™> How was supper?
08:33:14 <Betty> good. I'm already eating again:-)
08:33:48 <Kevin L™> I haven't made it that far yet.
08:34:28 <Betty> i'm at the buffet at TI
08:35:20 <Kevin L™> I have a nice slice of Heart of Gold melon in the fridge calling my name.
08:35:36 <Betty> yummy 😋
08:36:14 <Kevin L™> And one chilling that will be filled with ice cream for tonight.
08:36:38 <Betty> ohhh
08:37:00 <Kevin L™> Been a while since I have been to a buffet. They used to be inexpensive but not anymore.
08:37:51 <Ryan> Ranger walk or water in indy? :P
08:38:10 <Kevin L™> They have a small place here in Henderson that has a big ham steak with hash browns & eggs for $5.
08:38:36 <Kevin L™> A ranger walk was heading that way. They try to hang around BH if it is due.
08:38:44 <Betty> it's about 25$ now
08:39:18 <Kevin L™> Wow! That is more than I expected!
08:40:53 <Dave from B> OK, Betty. Hit the button
08:41:40 <Jimbo Barium> Go for steam up
08:42:20 <Kevin L™> I think she is hoping it will wait for her to finish that breakfast!
08:45:52 <Betty> Morning all
08:51:15 <Dave from B> Morning Betty
08:52:49 <Eric> Hi Betty
08:53:33 <Betty> I hope it will be going during that breakfast. Otherwise I won't have internet 😉 Hi Dave and Eric
08:57:16 <ynpvisitor103> what group is WSG?
09:00:11 <Dave from B> Western State Governors?
09:02:08 <ynpvisitor103> as in "Other Geyser"
09:04:03 <Betty> Is that you at depression,Kevin? ;-)
09:05:54 <Dave from B> haha
09:07:23 <Dave from B> Isn't there a Westside Group somewhere? This is a Jake question
09:07:27 <Jimbo Barium> Looks like he's fishing (or poaching his catch of the day)
09:12:36 <Dave from B> Here are the Geysers of the Westside Group in UGB...
09:12:38 <Dave from B>
09:15:35 <Eric> Maybe they meant WCG - White Creek Group?
09:16:06 <Kevin L™> If I was there, I would be at Depression.
09:16:38 <Eric> LC
09:16:41 <Betty> Nö,at Aurum
09:16:51 <Ryan> Kevin L™, you'd appreciate the current setting in the lab. I have five computers running FEA on rocket parts, while I sit here and do homework and assemble a Design Review presentation.
09:17:11 <Ryan> Its like babysitting. I just peek over at the next row of computers every few minutes and hope nothing is on fire.
09:17:15 <Betty> Hey Ryan:-)
09:17:20 <Ryan> Hiya B!
09:17:22 <Kevin L™> Nicee. That sounds like fun.
09:17:36 <Ryan> Yeah lets call it that ahaha
09:18:06 <Betty> Nice call Eric.
09:18:28 <Ryan> That is a LOT of people at Beehive...
09:18:42 <Jake> here's some help on WSG:
09:18:45 <Dave from B> Homeless are starting to gather at BH
09:18:45 <Kevin L™> Looks like the OF seismo has a bad attitude.
09:19:16 <ynpvisitor23> I think Kevin broke the little geyser next to BH.
09:19:34 <Eric> That didn't work Jake...too many options after clicking your link...can you click one for me too?
09:19:44 <Kevin L™> It worked when I was there.
09:20:23 <ynpvisitor23> It thinks you will grab you can of pipe cement if it shows.
09:21:11 <Kevin L™> If it was in my hard it would be squirting right now.
09:21:54 <Eric> Here is a list of all geysers included in the westside group:
09:22:51 <Betty> Time to push the button
09:23:10 <Dave from B> Kevin, one of your favorite geysers is in that group
09:23:35 <Dave from B> (Fantail)
09:24:00 <Kevin L™> That one was awesome.
09:24:57 <Jake> I ended up in Youtube. Looks like JSJ is calling the new thing next to Clepsydra "Sidekick" that's how you get a name cemented--publish it
09:25:38 <ynpvisitor103> depends what TSB uses too
09:26:45 <ynpvisitor103> wonder what WSG 5 is - GOSA site is no help there
09:28:26 <ynpvisitor9> the thing next to Clep is not a sidekick
09:28:31 <ynpvisitor9> it is just a hole
09:28:33 <Eric> A description by JSJ of WSG-5 -
09:29:36 <Eric> AKA - UWGNN016
09:30:30 <Eric> Also latest addition of TSB lists WSG-5 on page 135
09:30:48 <Eric> edition :-P
09:30:50 <Jake> "Just-a-hole" Geyser name status: available!
09:31:16 <Eric> People tired of waiting...already leaving Bee :-(
09:31:25 <Kevin L™> Lot of BH customers now. I wonder if the ranger walk left them off there.
09:31:47 <Eric> So many more empty holes to look at Kevin!
09:32:23 <ynpvisitor103> thanks, I didn't think about checking GT. Learn somethin new every day!
09:37:18 <Jake> plenty of time left in the BH window. no need to panic 😓😓😓
09:37:55 <Kevin L™> Hope this goes for you Betty before you have to hit McCarran.
09:38:22 <ynpvisitor23> Well got to go, enjoy the people watching. I am sure indy will stat now.
09:38:43 <Kevin L™> Thanks 23
09:38:43 <Eric> Thanks for your sacrifice 23
09:39:32 <Betty> 2 hrs to McCarran
09:40:11 <ynpvisitor9> CristyG called it Sidekick too, yet it really does not erupt anymore, small continual boiling, from the hole, or it gets covered by Fountain run off and becomes a blue pool.
09:41:52 <Ryan> Well Bee sure is happy
09:42:23 <Kevin L™> May be in store for a no Indy.
09:42:28 <Jimbo Barium> No Indy no Fair
09:42:39 <ynpvisitor9> or it is just messing with people
09:43:20 <ynpvisitor9> new fire, Bell Mountain fire, in Dubois, ID, causing all this smoke
09:43:52 <Betty> LC ie
09:43:59 <Ryan2> Had to move to a new computer. SolidWorks hijacked the other one from me
09:44:35 <Kevin L™> That stinks
09:44:47 <Jake> Daisy is also in the window < < <
09:45:24 <Ryan2> SolidWorks is like a bear. You just kind of leave it alone to do its thing. When its done, its done
09:52:39 <ynpvisitor103> Dubois ID - same name as WY?
09:53:30 <Kevin L™> Just north of Idaho Falls
09:54:03 <ynpvisitor103> do they pronounce it like WY does? (with an S)
09:54:38 <Kevin L™> Not sure.
09:56:34 <Jake> BHI
09:56:43 <Eric> woot
09:56:57 <Ryan2> Was wondering if I saw what I saw
09:57:04 <Eric> Should have daisy before BH though
09:57:17 <Ryan2> Saw it around 1153 I think
09:57:34 <Eric> That lines up with in basin report
09:57:57 <Ryan2> Got the text, but I dont see the indicator
09:57:59 <Ryan2> :)
09:58:13 <Kevin L™> on gt
09:58:34 <ynpvisitor3.14> I don't see it either yet but since Kitt entered it into GT I'll trust.
09:58:49 <ynpvisitor3.14> there it it I think.
09:59:02 <Kevin L™> I see it.
09:59:19 <Ryan2> Guess its been too long for everyone to remember
10:03:08 <Betty> Yay
10:03:11 <Eric> Can we zoom out to catch daisy too?
10:04:42 <Betty> That is a good crowd
10:06:07 <Jake> R.I.P. 38 consecutive Daisy intervals, the end is near
10:06:10 <Dave from B> woohoo
10:07:09 <Eric> Thanks camop
10:07:15 <Jake> no, no, it's too late. just turn the camera off. all is lost
10:07:31 <Ryan2> but I wanted to see chevrons :(
10:08:11 <Eric> daisy in 2 minutes
10:09:41 <Betty> Is it smoky?
10:10:19 <Eric> Yes, seems to be getting worse
10:10:22 <Jake> chevrons:
10:10:43 <Ryan2> lawl
10:10:53 <ynpvisitor9> new fire is in direct line of the park with SW wind flow
10:11:16 <Eric> Daisy Prediction failure :-(
10:12:50 <Eric> bh
10:13:18 <Jake> thanks, camop!
10:13:28 <Ryan2> That white fuzzy thing in the distance?
10:13:47 <Ryan2> oh that...
10:13:52 <Ryan2> Wow I have a delay
10:13:55 <Jimbo Barium> Lots of action at the start
10:14:12 <Eric> waiting for wind shift running :-)
10:14:42 <Ryan2> Wow, thats tall
10:15:04 <ynpvisitor9> I don't think it will shift on them
10:15:21 <Eric> probably right 9....pretty steady direction
10:15:37 <Eric> But, power of positive thought :-P
10:15:54 <ynpvisitor9> yes, Emily waiting in her poncho
10:19:20 <Betty> That was fun. See you from the other side of the pond again. Bye
10:19:40 <Dave from B> Have a safe trip Betty
10:19:47 <Kevin L™> Have a good trip Betty.
10:19:56 <Betty> Greetings from Thomas too
10:20:13 <Eric> Safe travels you two!
10:20:24 <Kevin L™> Same back to Thomas. Was great meeting the both of you.
11:22:38 <Jake> I got pulled away mere seconds into Beehive! reads like it was a good one. this blue-tinted haze image is unique. reminds me of Kodachrome slides
11:22:58 <Jake> or maybe slides that were knock off Kodachrome
12:48:44 <ynpvisitor3.14> daisy
13:12:08 <ynpvisitor2> the moon will set about an hour before BH tomorrow morning, bummer.
13:30:18 <Jake> Castle ie
13:32:30 <Dave from B> Time to head out. Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
13:32:37 <Graham> its the weeeeeekkkkkeeeeeennnnndddddd
13:33:02 <Graham> bye Dave, I will wave from the other side
13:33:18 <Dave from B> Have a safe trip!
13:33:33 <Graham> thanks, fortunately not flying thru Houston
13:34:21 <Graham> so F&M didnt wait, no surprise there. maybe I will see them next weekend
13:39:00 <ynpvisitor56> Weekend?
13:40:31 <ynpvisitor14> OF
14:01:00 <Graham> its 16 days when you dont work
14:19:51 <ynpvisitor35> Not a good weekend to go visit Glacier. Been busy watching local fires.
14:35:02 <ynpvisitor8> Grand
14:36:26 <Graham> looks like its been pretty smokey at OF
15:22:13 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy and SC
16:24:19 <Kevin L™> I just watched Betty's flight take off on virtual radar.
16:26:47 <ynpvisitor81> Graham quit. This is not smoky. When it looks like San Fransisco, that is smoky.
16:28:58 <ynpvisitor81> Or when the sun looks like you war seeing it thorough eclipse glasses, that si smoky.
16:36:03 <Kevin L™> Lion
16:37:19 <ynpvisitor81> All those people waiting for Lion and thy did not even know it.
17:25:40 <Kevin L™> You at the park kc?
17:32:49 <kcmule> nope. what makes ya think that? just curious
17:33:34 <Kevin L™> There is a Pink Cone entry in GT with entrant as kc.
17:34:12 <kcmule> oh yeah, different kc. I'm still kcmule on gt
17:44:45 <Kevin L™> Moonset 0210
17:50:28 <kcmule> daisy ie
17:54:40 <kcmule> hard to look at the moon the same way after 8/21
17:55:17 <Kevin L™> True
17:55:30 <Kevin L™> Lion
18:04:38 <kcmule> still just as hard to look at the sun..
18:05:12 <Kevin L™> You don't still have those glasses?
18:07:50 <kcmule> they're actually good for watching some sunsets, probably sunrises too
18:08:49 <kcmule> I can see individual trees on mountaintops right in front of the sun, pretty neat
18:14:28 <Kevin L™> Wouldn't need them at the park today.
19:05:27 <ynpvisitor87> Lion
19:06:43 <Kevin L™> Long interval. Wonder if there was a minor in it.
19:29:29 <ynpvisitor24> Ooh, the color night cam is back!
19:30:26 <ynpvisitor24> So much better! In time for the next full moon.
19:59:47 <Kevin L™> Looks like a chance for Northern Lights tonight.
20:24:48 <Kevin L™> Lights at Grand
20:36:53 <Kevin L™> Steam in the Aurum area
20:46:14 <Kevin L™> Grand
20:52:57 <Kevin L™> Someone needs to stick that idiots flashlight in his nose.
20:54:52 <Kevin L™> 2nd
21:10:09 <ynpvisitor8> OF
21:35:25 <ynpvisitor26> Wow. Still color.
