22:21:45 <ynpvisitor106> It is in color too.
22:22:36 <ynpvisitor31> Beehive in color would be nice. Too bad I can't stay up that late.
23:52:36 <ynpvisitor101> Nice light show at Grand
04:40:51 <Joe> OF was just finishing when I signed on
06:12:53 <ynpvisitor103> OF
06:12:56 <Joe> OF
06:17:58 <Joe> long I think, hard to tell
06:34:25 <Joe> Grand
07:19:35 <Michael> Split Cone ie
07:36:14 <ynpvisitor94> Castle ie
07:37:16 <Michael> Must have started semi-recently
07:38:14 <ynpvisitor94> I suspect we will see an in field post shortly.

07:54:59 <Joe> OF
08:53:07 <Kevin L™> Oblong?
08:57:07 <Joe> I think most of the in basin gazers are taking a rest break after a long busy night.
08:57:46 <Kevin L™> Probably on oxygen with this smoke
08:58:00 <Joe> except for UDO
08:58:33 <Kevin L™> Will is out and about too.
08:58:51 <Joe> the smoke is bad, even here in Thermopolis
08:59:42 <Kevin L™> My daughter sent a picture from Rexburg. Really bad there.
09:28:40 <Kevin L™> Very light traffic at West Gate today.
10:20:34 <ynpvisitor...> Wow! Lots o' gunk in the air.
10:41:37 <ynpvisitor64> Lion
10:42:09 <Kevin L™> Missed a Daisy in the smoke
10:42:26 <Betty> hi Kevin
10:42:44 <Betty> looks nasty
10:43:07 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty. Could have used your eyes.
10:43:52 <Betty> and hi Eric, Joe, Kent and numbers
10:44:28 <Kevin L™> Been quiet today
11:02:28 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon everyone and evening Betty
11:02:36 <Kevin L™> Hi
11:02:51 <Betty> good evening DGInc
11:03:02 <Betty> how are you?
11:03:08 <ynpvisitor999> I'm good
11:03:27 <Betty> Nice :-)
11:04:30 <ynpvisitor999> looks like someone's having a large BBQ party
11:04:46 <Betty> yummy
11:05:01 <ynpvisitor999> as in the smoke in the basin
11:05:21 <Betty> reminds me of some BBQ Spare ribs in West Yellowstone ...
11:07:02 <Kevin L™> But no Navajo tacos...
11:07:11 <Betty> no...
11:07:55 <ynpvisitor999> Other good news, too. I should have a physical copy of the Geysers of Yellowstone by the beginning of next week. I was using an incomplete downloaded version for about a year today.
11:08:21 <Kevin L™> Nice!
11:08:21 <Betty> yay, that´s good
11:08:31 <Kevin L™> Hard copy is always better!
11:08:38 <ynpvisitor999> :)
11:09:13 <Kevin L™> I have a few versions signed by T Scott.
11:09:24 <ynpvisitor999> nice
11:10:50 <Kevin L™> He is working on an update now.
11:10:56 <ynpvisitor43> next edition is coming soon
11:11:58 <ynpvisitor999> thought something like that already, as a new edition got released every ten years or so with prior versions
11:13:28 <Kevin L™> Just got a bunch of times from the LGB
11:15:21 <Kevin L™> May have trouble seeing OF in all this smoke.
11:15:50 <ynpvisitor999> good luck
11:16:27 <Betty> my view is choppy
11:16:51 <Kevin L™> Same here.
11:17:20 <ynpvisitor999> mine is not (yet), apart from some caused by side panel updating and periodic general computer lag spikes
11:20:28 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1329/1328, but in-basin 1318?
11:20:59 <Kevin L™> I had 1329.
11:21:22 <ynpvisitor999> I'm a(n) , because it ain't even that time yet
11:21:43 <ynpvisitor999> I blame the 1992 logs
11:22:07 <ynpvisitor43> glad you didn't enter it!
11:22:16 <Betty> udo posts it asap as a long too, he did that yesterday
11:23:06 <ynpvisitor999> I wouldn't be able to post it as 1329 either, because GT has a handy future entry protection
11:23:20 <ynpvisitor43> maybe that's easier and only requires an edit if it is a short
11:26:23 <Kevin L™> That works. Most of them are long anyway.
11:28:52 <ynpvisitor999> that was a whole lot different in 1992, though. Most of the times every other one was a short, sometimes even a double short. This began changing gradually to sometimes days with more longs than shorts
11:34:12 <ynpvisitor43> I think we had "mediums" then too, the long and short might have been added to the transcriptions
11:35:12 <ynpvisitor999> I think so too
11:37:34 <Betty> LC
11:37:50 <ynpvisitor43> in those days they had a detailed prediction chart with about 10 variants depending on duration
11:38:11 <Kevin L™> This smoke gets worse we won't see Grand.
11:38:58 <ynpvisitor999> that's a lot. Now I understand why they chose to use an L/S system
11:39:48 <ynpvisitor999> although a bit less accurate, it's much easier to understand and use
11:41:08 <Kevin L™> They used to time each eruption and then appy that time to a formula.
11:43:02 <Kevin L™> http://www.geyserstudy.org/geyser.aspx?pGeyserNo=OLDFAITHFUL
11:43:04 <ynpvisitor...> I wonder if gunky summers are going to be the new norm.
11:43:14 <ynpvisitor...> Hey Betty
11:43:51 <Kevin L™> Strip mining prevents forest fires.
11:43:51 <Betty> hi Kent
11:44:30 <ynpvisitor...> :)
11:45:01 <Kevin L™> If you REALLY want to get technical: http://www.unco.edu/nhs/mathsci/facstaff/powers/m550/RelatingTwoVariables/pdf/4.2%20Old%20Faithful%20Regression.pdf
11:47:48 <ynpvisitor999> I've seen enough math for today I guess
11:47:57 <ynpvisitor43> nice KEvin, I didn't know that was online. I used to have it in the back of my book
11:48:22 <Kevin L™> I like the long short method.
11:49:52 <Kevin L™> It was like when we used to do road elevation to the 1000th of an inch. Right, tell that grader operator he is 100oth of an inch off.
11:50:53 <ynpvisitor...> OF predictions are another instance where "close counts" or at least is good enough for me.
11:51:15 <Kevin L™> For sure.
11:57:20 <ynpvisitor999> anyway, got to go
12:06:46 <ynpvisitor...> Lion
12:07:38 <Betty> wow I´m really lagged..30 sec

12:22:59 <Kevin L™> Last Turban 1405
12:28:11 <Betty> LC ie
12:32:02 <ynpvisitor...> Grand
12:32:12 <Betty> woot
12:32:42 <Kevin L™> Long Turban
12:49:55 <ynpvisitor90> The smoke looks like my neighborhood.
12:59:31 <Betty> Daisy
13:00:18 <Kevin L™> Good eye
13:00:55 <Kevin L™> I can see how I missed that one
13:01:31 <ynpvisitor90> Need to clean the lens
13:01:46 <Betty> :-D
13:02:13 <Kevin L™> Need a really big fan
13:09:16 <Betty> people can go now, OF is out of it´s window
13:09:51 <ynpvisitor90> Maybe it went when they were all looking at Daisy
13:10:07 <Kevin L™> I bet the smoke means the volcano erupted. Bet the next OFis a video of a previous eruption!
13:10:29 <Kevin L™> People would be gone 90
13:10:46 <Kevin L™> Besides I have sttatic up.
13:12:12 <Betty> OF
13:12:14 <Kevin L™> Cam suddenly moved. Must be hiding something.
13:13:05 <ynpvisitor90> Well if they were all looking at Daisy, they would have missed it and not gone.
13:18:11 <ynpvisitor90> Time for that tiny geyser by BH. I can not wait all day.
13:19:01 <Kevin L™> You may have to.
13:21:57 <ynpvisitor18> BH could easily go at sunset or later
13:22:46 <ynpvisitor18> that smoke looks thick.
13:22:49 <ynpvisitor90> Or earlier, it is due for an early
13:22:53 <ynpvisitor90> Lion
13:22:57 <ynpvisitor18> I wonder where the fire is
13:23:10 <ynpvisitor90> Everywhere
13:25:26 <ynpvisitor90> Montana is one fire, Oregon is on fire, not sure about Idaho.
13:25:52 <Kevin L™> A few in Idaho
13:26:47 <ynpvisitor90> Looking at a map of some kind, Idaho is one fire. And one east of the park of some type.
13:27:24 <Kevin L™> http://www.idahofireinfo.com/p/maps.html
13:29:42 <ynpvisitor90> This will fill in the smoke questions. https://airnow.gov/index.cfm?action=topics.smoke_wildfires
13:41:20 <Kevin L™> Irma is now a Category 4 Hurricane aimed just barely south of Florida heading into the Gulf.
13:55:57 <Betty> headed out, night all
13:56:12 <ynpvisitor90> Night
13:56:12 <Kevin L™> bye
14:47:40 <Michael> *cough cough cough* I can't remember seeing this smoky before.
14:47:57 <Kevin L™> 1988?
14:48:20 <Michael> Good point.
14:48:37 <Michael> OF
14:49:57 <Kevin L™> We had a gazer fatality that year due to smoke.
14:50:55 <Kevin L™> Looks short
14:55:10 <Michael> I'm surprised there are no fires in the Park right now.
15:55:05 <Michael> OF
15:55:24 <Kevin L™> Boom!
15:56:05 <Kevin L™> Not sure if we missed Daisy. I sure haven't seen it.
15:56:43 <Michael> I didn't see it either. Though I've been out of the room a lot.
15:57:39 <Kevin L™> Longer than the normal interval now, but I could have missed it in the smoke.
15:58:35 <Kevin L™> Need to feed chickens, but I will give it a bit just in case.
16:11:13 <Kevin L™> Look for Daisy and Aurum.
16:11:37 <Michael> Will do. Also BHI.
16:19:06 <Kevin L™> No Aurum?
16:19:37 <Michael> None that I saw.
16:20:00 <Kevin L™> BH is in th window I guess
16:24:02 <Michael> Ugh. Last time Aurum was seen twice in the same day was July 29. It's not enjoying the summer.
16:25:41 <Kevin L™> Had a great eruption Sunday. I was hoping for another today. I think we may be getting intervals over 30h
17:05:43 <Kevin L™> Close to cone at 1800
17:07:17 <ynpvisitor84> LC
17:16:05 <Kevin L™> BH is looking a bit better now.
17:38:26 <ynpvisitor84> OF
17:39:25 <Michael> BHI
17:39:29 <Michael> .
17:39:29 <Michael> .
17:39:29 <Michael> .
17:39:41 <Michael> Thanks for calling OF or I would have missed that too.
17:40:30 <Kevin L™> text sent
17:41:11 <ynpvisitor6> Thanks for the text
17:41:40 <ynpvisitor108> It is not dark yet
17:45:54 <ynpvisitor108> weeee
17:46:22 <Kevin L™> Short Indy
17:50:23 <ynpvisitor108> Well that was fun. Enjoy the smoky day
17:51:54 <Kevin L™> Now the march to Grand.
17:53:37 <ynpvisitor106> That was fun. Night all.
17:53:55 <Kevin L™> bye
17:54:22 <Michael> bye 106.
18:10:03 <Kevin L™> Giantess looks hot.
18:10:28 <Kevin L™> Lot of steam for 67° and 34% humidity.
18:12:17 <Kevin L™> Turban 2005
18:30:05 <Kevin L™> Turban 2027
18:30:22 <Kevin L™> Looks like it will be too dark for a zoom.
19:09:36 <Kevin L™> Smoke is thick. Already B&W
19:09:41 <Michael> Just went to B/W mode. Will that help us see Grand?
19:14:17 <Michael> OF
