05:07:04 <Dave from B> Lion 0706ie
05:07:47 <ynpvisitor69> morning Dave, lc here.
05:07:57 <ynpvisitor69> you get snow overnight?
05:08:27 <Dave from B> No, but it rained pretty good all night. 39F currently
05:08:41 <Dave from B> Morning lc
05:10:00 <ynpvisitor69> Lion is probably initial.
05:10:55 <Dave from B> Only YNP roads open as of 0600: West to OF, Madison to Norris, Mammoth to Cooke City
05:12:31 <ynpvisitor69> hot here for another week, mid to upper 80's.
05:13:13 <Dave from B> That sounds nice. How was the trip home from YNP?
05:15:32 <ynpvisitor69> good. St Louis a little slow and Nashville always a mess but overall good.
05:17:56 <ynpvisitor69> road looks clear at West
05:21:30 <ynpvisitor69> not much to see. bbl.
05:22:01 <Dave from B> Enjoy your day lc
05:49:18 <ynpvisitor83> On track to have 10 inches more precipitation this water year than the average.

06:26:47 <Dave from B> Lion 0826ie
06:29:51 <Jimbo Tungsten> Zooming on Lion makes it look like Christmas in the basin
06:42:33 <Joe> OF about 0839 based on people leaving on stream cam and static cam
06:58:44 <ynpvisitor999> hmm... Based on three Echinus minors and two 'normal' eruptions, I think that Echinus did some minors on September 19
06:58:54 <ynpvisitor999> morning everyone, by the way
07:03:51 <Dave from B> Looks like bubblers are going
07:04:35 <ynpvisitor118> Unbelievable how early the winter weather has come this year
07:05:05 <ynpvisitor118> I mean a day of snow isn't unusual but this is like a week of winter
07:27:12 <ynpvisitor74> person waiting at indy spot again today
07:28:09 <ynpvisitor74> but they must not have a radio, since the Beehive eruption wasn't called from Geyser hill yesterday
07:42:00 <ynpvisitor999> Lion?
07:42:29 <ynpvisitor999> nope
08:07:58 <Eric> morning
08:08:14 <Eric> OF i think
08:08:18 <ynpvisitor999> morning Eric
08:08:25 <ynpvisitor999> you're right
08:08:37 <Eric> Like watching a rocket take off :-P
08:09:26 <ynpvisitor999> OF's early in the window
08:10:54 <ynpvisitor> So don't count on a 20 + hour BH?
08:11:31 <Joe> OF Short?
08:12:33 <ynpvisitor999> don't know, Joe. I'd hold off classifying it as a long/short until the NPS prediction shows up
08:12:52 <ynpvisitor999> as most of the times, they are right
08:13:00 <Joe> Thanks DG
08:17:05 <ynpvisitor999> OF long per NPS
08:26:25 <ynpvisitor999> apparently OF was a short
08:27:10 <ynpvisitor22> Will be fun to see who is right
08:27:14 <Eric> NPS says long, Dave says short...game on! :-D
08:27:38 <Eric> Personally I would place my bets on Dave :-P
08:28:08 <ynpvisitor22> Come Watson, the game is afoot
08:28:33 <Eric> 221B Yelowstone street?
08:28:43 <ynpvisitor999> 1/3 change on long/short/medium
08:29:35 <Joe> my money is on Dave M
08:30:09 <Eric> Good call Joe :-D...not sure why we don't have a bh prediction though
08:30:10 <ynpvisitor56> I like medium rare
08:30:34 <Eric> Agree with that too 56...the perfect steak
08:30:48 <ynpvisitor56> yep
08:31:03 <Eric> Ribeye medium rare is hard to beat!
08:31:04 <Kevin L™> Makes me feel better about my messups this week.
08:31:20 <Betty> Hi all
08:31:25 <Eric> hi betty
08:31:27 <Kevin L™> Hi
08:31:54 <Betty> hi Eric and Kevin
08:33:17 <Eric> Do we have bubblers going?
08:33:38 <Kevin L™> It looked like it.
08:34:00 <Betty> And Joe, Jimbo, Dave and numbers
08:34:29 <Dave from B> Hi Betty
08:34:41 <Betty> should I rush home to see BH!
08:34:50 <Betty> ?
08:34:52 <Eric> Yes
08:35:01 <Betty> oops
08:35:47 <Betty> i sit in Thomas ' yard with a coffee
08:36:45 <Betty> not the worst place to be with sun shining
08:36:54 <Kevin L™> 20 plus hours with bubblers. A sign of a no Indy eruption.
08:37:31 <Betty> 21 hrs now
08:42:20 <ynpvisitor91> Is BH an unknown now? No erruption from previous 5:30 prediction?
08:42:21 <ynpvisitor4> longest interval in last 100 now
08:42:51 <ynpvisitor4> 91, that prediction window has been wrong for a bit now
08:43:48 <Dave from B> Wow...look at Grand intervals....decent shot for 5 Grands today
08:44:05 <Betty> bbs
08:44:12 <Dave from B> 6 of last 8 have been under 6 hours
08:44:24 <ynpvisitor4> if we can see Grand, though E times will catch us up
08:44:46 <Dave from B> Yeah...not a good Grand viewing day today
08:44:51 <ynpvisitor91> at least I didn't miss it. may not see anything anything but snowflakes!
08:45:02 <ynpvisitor4> maybe it is moving toward the 5 hour ones of years ago
08:46:45 <ynpvisitor4> no posts from Jim or Polly yet
08:47:04 <Dave from B> Good day to stay home
08:47:25 <ynpvisitor4> Jim has his home with him, yet maybe did not want to travel the roads today
08:51:21 <Eric> bhi? lot more steam there
08:55:53 <Dave from B> not sure what happened
08:58:45 <ynpvisitor4> I don't see BHI
08:59:39 <Kevin L™> Lost stream but back now. No BH
09:00:57 <Joe> My stream keeps stopping :(
09:01:24 <Kevin L™> same here
09:05:04 <Kevin L™> Watch for BH, have to be gone for about 15m.
09:10:52 <ynpvisitor999> If Grand goes before 1200 and continues to do <6h intervals, we may have a change on 5 Grands in one day
09:11:03 <ynpvisitor999> chance*
09:13:49 <Eric> Dave mentioned that :-D
09:14:09 <ynpvisitor999> extra confirmation :)
09:14:34 <Dave from B> I thought I heard an echo:)
09:14:42 <Eric> echo
09:15:21 <ynpvisitor999> 'cho... 'cho... o... o...
09:17:22 <ynpvisitor6> so is that the south bubbler that we see from the boardwalk or is it a different bubbler????
09:21:35 <Kevin L™> No BH?
09:22:47 <ynpvisitor6> no
09:23:11 <Kevin L™> I thought being gone would trigger it for sure.
09:27:59 <Kevin L™> Stream dead again.
09:29:05 <ynpvisitor3.14> literally frozen. time for BH.
09:29:20 <Eric> booo, dead stream
09:29:28 <Eric> Kevin killed it
09:29:46 <ynpvisitor3.14> going to lunch. stream will come back and BH will erupt. enjoy
09:29:54 <Kevin L™> back
09:29:54 <Eric> it's back
09:30:44 <Eric> by pi
09:30:57 <Eric> or should say rough aprox. to pi :-D
09:31:04 <Kevin L™> Have a good lunch π
09:32:22 <ynpvisitor118> West Entrance :( :( :(
09:34:20 <ynpvisitor100> it would be interesting to know how many of those cars actually have snow tires at the West Entrance. I would bet less than 5%, if that.
09:34:44 <ynpvisitor6> A=Daisy
09:35:12 <ynpvisitor6> weird, I didn't type that
09:35:51 <ynpvisitor100> you must have in the past
09:36:06 <ynpvisitor100> chat will pick up old things sometimes
09:36:31 <Eric> little sunshine
09:38:15 <ynpvisitor100> you saw sunshine?
09:38:52 <ynpvisitor999> and iit snows again...
09:38:57 <ynpvisitor999> it*
09:46:05 <ynpvisitor999> no Grand before 1200, based on Turban 1142 ie
09:46:35 <Kevin L™> I see blue
09:46:43 <ynpvisitor100> Tara braved it into the basin
09:46:50 <ynpvisitor999> evening Betty
09:46:58 <Betty> hi DG
09:47:45 <ynpvisitor999> F&M note 1030: Lots of gurgling. Main, river, gold, angle all on sustaining about 2ft bursts then nothing.
09:48:03 <Dave from B> I hope Grand goes on next Turban
09:48:12 <ynpvisitor100> F & M may be done for the season
09:48:30 <ynpvisitor100> Grand could still go under 6 hours
09:49:23 <ynpvisitor999> or, even more depressing, done for this active period
09:49:38 <ynpvisitor100> there are a lot of people at OF. Helps to be one of the only places people can go.
09:50:02 <ynpvisitor100> how is that any different DG?
09:50:44 <Betty> Indy?
09:50:48 <ynpvisitor999> I see done for the season as done for this year, while done for this active period, dormant for the next couple of years
09:50:51 <ynpvisitor100> it is nice to see blue sky
09:50:59 <ynpvisitor999> was thinking the same thing, Betty
09:51:01 <ynpvisitor100> yep, looks like it
09:51:02 <Betty> .
09:51:03 <Betty> .
09:51:03 <Betty> .
09:51:04 <Betty> .
09:51:11 <Joe> YES
09:51:14 <ynpvisitor100> what will Tara do? Someone send her a text
09:51:16 <ynpvisitor6> yay
09:51:33 <Kevin L™> sending
09:52:02 <Betty> nice
09:52:05 <Dave from B> Not another dual:P
09:52:27 <ynpvisitor999> OF
09:52:30 <Dave from B> slippery bw conditions as well
09:52:32 <Eric> boom
09:52:42 <Kevin L™> :p
09:52:51 <ynpvisitor28> Yes. A good start.
09:52:52 <Eric> fake news...I see no BH
09:53:37 <ynpvisitor999> hi Kitt
09:54:32 <ynpvisitor999> short, 2m02s
09:58:04 <ynpvisitor999> kinda thought it was going to do a short ~1m30s into the eruption, as the height decreased below normal 'long' heights. Of course it may rebound after that, which is usually the case
09:58:28 <Eric> Guess NPS was right on that earlier call
09:58:32 <Eric> BH
09:58:33 <Eric> .
09:58:35 <Eric> boom
09:58:35 <ynpvisitor999> Boom!
09:58:36 <Kitt> Beehive
09:59:05 <ynpvisitor100> 9 minute indy
09:59:09 <Jimbo Tungsten> Very pretty!
09:59:32 <Eric> at least we got an indy :-D
09:59:48 <ynpvisitor999> better a short indy than no indy :)
10:00:12 <Eric> wow...I didn't expect to be able to see it this well.
10:00:29 <Jimbo Tungsten> noon clearing helping out
10:00:38 <Kitt> that is because fluffy was a short
10:00:50 <Eric> Yes, thank you fluffy
10:01:02 <Eric> and wind is good direction
10:01:24 <Kevin L™> Keeping the steam off of it.
10:01:28 <ynpvisitor100> hopefully Grand did not erupt
10:01:43 <Eric> Tara is down there i think...so probably not
10:01:47 <ynpvisitor100> this side might be the better viewing today
10:01:57 <Eric> or not...guess she is at bh
10:02:11 <Kitt> I thought Tara was at Bee
10:02:27 <ynpvisitor999> quite the few shorts lately
10:02:34 <Kitt> Polly was headed for Grand
10:02:41 <Eric> she had bulger at 1142, so I assumed down basin...but maybe someplace in between
10:02:44 <ynpvisitor100> she could be watching from Spasmodic area
10:03:00 <Kitt> now Tara can go get a Grand
10:03:13 <ynpvisitor999> Grand 1201
10:03:13 <Eric> :-)
10:03:18 <Eric> Awesome bee today!
10:03:28 <ynpvisitor999> definitely
10:03:32 <Eric> camop...grand please
10:03:38 <Eric> daisy
10:03:40 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy ie
10:03:43 <Kitt> Daosu
10:03:54 <Kitt> Daisy
10:03:57 <Betty> DöisÜ
10:04:03 <ynpvisitor100> geysers everywhere
10:04:16 <Eric> sprinkler :-D
10:04:18 <Betty> that´s Yellowstone :-)
10:04:25 <Kevin L™> Just like Monday
10:04:37 <Eric> Nice nap after this
10:05:02 <Dave from B> Possiblity for a 5 Grand day and no one to see all 5 in the field...too bad
10:05:15 <Betty> Eric, I´m still lagged more than 70 seconds. Any ideas about that :-(
10:06:03 <ynpvisitor999> BHI was @ 1149 by the way, with water @ 1148
10:07:46 <ynpvisitor999> if the next interval of Grand is <5h55m, there is a good chance of getting 5 Grands on one day
10:08:04 <ynpvisitor999> of course, if Grad wants to cooperate
10:08:07 <ynpvisitor999> Grand*
10:08:26 <Kitt> doesn't matter at this time of the year since it is too cold to be out there during the night
10:08:45 <Kitt> with animals stocking up for winter
10:08:56 <ynpvisitor100> Will Brown is here so we should get lots of Tilt's baby posts
10:09:17 <Kitt> this is a late trip for him
10:09:50 <Kitt> 2nd
10:09:53 <Eric> Betty, bad connection can cause the video to drop data, making lag
10:09:57 <Eric> boom...nice
10:10:01 <ynpvisitor999> yay, a second
10:10:02 <ynpvisitor100> nice
10:11:07 <ynpvisitor999> lagging 70 seconds has a bad and a good thing - the bad thing is that you can't watch the live webcam, but the good thing is, is that you can prepare for things and possibly grab a bag of popcorn
10:16:07 <Eric> Betty is your stream still RTMP?
10:19:04 <Betty> yes
10:20:58 <Eric> alright...I will update the video player here to the latest and see if that helps and then if the issue continues, contact the developers of the video player to get resolution. Viewers shouldn't have to worry if they are lagged or not.
10:22:38 <Betty> but it seems to be only me
10:23:03 <Betty> so maybe a problem on my side
10:30:58 <ynpvisitor3.14> y'all are welcome for BH and Grand. Lunch was fine, btw...
10:31:36 <Betty> we appreciate your sacrifice
10:32:33 <ynpvisitor3.14> (i watched from a different device - sshh, don't tell the geysers...)
10:32:58 <Betty> :-)
10:38:17 <Jimbo Tungsten> Nice Depression splashes
10:51:29 <Betty> OF
10:51:38 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1251
10:51:58 <Betty> so I´m nt lagged?
10:52:03 <ynpvisitor999> interval of 59m
10:52:12 <ynpvisitor999> I don't think so, Betty
10:52:29 <Betty> nice
10:52:35 <ynpvisitor999> unless the camop enters a time of, for example, 1250 or 1249
10:54:14 <Joe> long
10:55:38 <Joe> xtra-long :)
10:56:34 <Betty> blue sky
10:56:37 <ynpvisitor999> usually the case with the first long after a short
10:57:14 <ynpvisitor999> sometimes these extra long eruptions are more than 5 minutes long
11:12:50 <Betty> Grotto ie
11:14:35 <ynpvisitor999> LC ie
11:14:41 <Joe> LC
11:14:53 <Betty> yay
11:17:22 <ynpvisitor999> Castle in NPS window
11:47:56 <ynpvisitor999> Castle
12:02:41 <Kevin L™> Summer is now officially over.
12:03:48 <ynpvisitor999> it's now the time for foggy starts of the day, several hours of snow and with a little luck, some sunshine
12:04:22 <ynpvisitor999> Castle major
12:06:06 <ynpvisitor999> I wonder if Castle's intervals will drop below 12h sometime this year or next year
12:06:17 <ynpvisitor999> 13h*
12:36:05 <Kevin L™> Daisy ie
12:48:01 <ynpvisitor999> OF might pull a 2h+ interval
12:50:47 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1450
12:56:20 <ynpvisitor3.14> just missed that 2hr mark.
13:04:20 <ynpvisitor15> 'VB ]
13:05:28 <ynpvisitor999> bison near visitors
13:06:53 <Joe> when was the last 119 min interval?
13:09:31 <ynpvisitor999> Last 119+ interval was on September 15, 2017 @ 0419. It was a closed interval of 2h11m/131m
13:10:02 <Joe> thanks
13:10:28 <ynpvisitor999> no problem
13:37:15 <Betty> SC
13:42:28 <ynpvisitor108> it's getting nicer finally
13:47:23 <Eric> terra cotta?
14:04:12 <Betty> headed out, night all
14:04:21 <ynpvisitor999> night Betty
14:10:21 <ynpvisitor61> Did someone see the grizzly sow with cub on OF bw this morning at 0830?
14:10:46 <ynpvisitor61> there's a note in GT
14:12:30 <Eric> wow...that is crazy
14:26:54 <ynpvisitor15> Bison?
14:27:12 <ynpvisitor15> I mean, Bison, not Griz?
14:32:11 <Eric> riverside
14:32:24 <Eric> Guess Betty is already on it :-P
14:32:53 <ynpvisitor1> I'm lurking:-)
14:35:27 <ynpvisitor1> Must be oblong
14:36:33 <Kevin L™> If it was a 1m duration would it be an Obshort?
14:36:54 <ynpvisitor1> Sure
14:37:56 <ynpvisitor1> So, who saw the grizzly?
14:42:07 <ynpvisitor15> Dunno - someone said it ^^ above
14:43:05 <Eric> http://geysertimes.org/note.php?id=6921
14:50:36 <Kevin L™> That was Jamie Kern.
14:50:47 <Kevin L™> Lion
15:14:41 <Kevin L™> Daisy
15:16:21 <ynpvisitor108> She is a ranger. The bears are the only ones that can access BH cutoff right now
15:16:35 <ynpvisitor108> 38, warming up
15:18:35 <Kevin L™> I was thinking that she was a ranger. Packers are going to take care of the bears Thursday anyway.
15:21:24 <ynpvisitor108> ha
15:31:40 <Eric> I will check static camera footage tomorrow to see if it caught the bears.
15:47:49 <Kevin L™> 5.7 eq shook up the fish west of Ferndale CA
15:49:22 <Eric> Nice size quake for cali
15:49:57 <Kevin L™> Not too far from you!
15:54:13 <Eric> grand
15:54:18 <Eric> ie
15:54:20 <Kevin L™> Grand ie
15:55:09 <Eric> on track for 5 today
15:55:23 <Kevin L™> So we still have a shot at 5
15:55:35 <Eric> Not that anybody can take advantage...but still neat :-D
15:55:45 <Kevin L™> We think alike today Eric
15:56:27 <Eric> haha...yep. Wrapping up work and about to head out.
15:57:29 <Kevin L™> Almost time to watch grown men and older kids crash expensive cars for me.
15:58:16 <Eric> night kevin
15:58:24 <Eric> and btw...thanks for the lye link!
15:58:45 <Kevin L™> YW. I think that should work.
16:04:42 <Graham> 5 Grands, let go
16:04:58 <Kevin L™> Internet pause. Did not see how many bursts.
18:17:41 <Kevin L™> Well at least someone saw an Aurum today.
