23:53:18 <Betty> You in basin, joe?
23:56:10 <ynpvisitor20> Not in basin, will change to wc
23:57:03 <Betty> Would be more fun if you were there
23:58:05 <Betty> I did not expect it that early
00:00:20 <ynpvisitor20> Yes it would, cant change OF to wc, gt wont let me
00:01:43 <Betty> There's Daisy
00:02:44 <Betty> Hope we did not miss Lion behind beehive
00:03:19 <ynpvisitor20> Yes it is due
00:05:55 <ynpvisitor117> Missed it by that much.
00:06:43 <Betty> Bummer
00:07:28 <Betty> Depression is ie
00:08:30 <ynpvisitor117> Just got home and headed to bed. I Was A Male War Bride is on TV.
00:08:55 <Betty> I Love that film
00:09:35 <Betty> Parts of it were filmed near my Home, less than 10 miles away
00:10:22 <ynpvisitor117> Someday you will have to tell me what the cab driver and policeman are talking about in the start of the movie.
00:10:53 <Betty> It is when they drive with the motorbike underneath that stone railroadbridge
00:11:59 <ynpvisitor117> When they are trying to find the Autobahn to Heildelberg.
00:12:26 <Betty> I guess so, yes
00:13:35 <ynpvisitor117> Right at the start of the movie.
00:14:02 <ynpvisitor117> One of my favorite movies
00:14:15 <Betty> It's been a long time since I saw that movie
00:14:36 <ynpvisitor117> Me too.
00:16:16 <ynpvisitor117> First time I saw it my friends wife recorded it and the recording cut off just when they were cutting the tail off the horse.
00:17:37 <ynpvisitor117> Took me 2 years to finally see the ending. The MGM Grand ran it on the big screen. It was great.
00:20:40 <ynpvisitor117> Time for some sleep. Bye
00:21:26 <Betty> Night Kevin. I will Tell you tomorrow what they talk
00:21:38 <Betty> I found it
00:24:59 <Betty> Time for chores. Bbl
04:13:43 <Betty> hey, when did it start to snow?
04:14:32 <Graham> loks like its been going for a while
04:15:22 <Graham> hard to watch for Grand this morning
04:15:46 <Joe> I fell asleep about 0415, so between then and now
04:34:55 <Graham> not supposed to snow much tho
05:19:20 <ynpvisitor86> I think OF at 0717
05:21:31 <ynpvisitor86> could see it better on the static cam.
05:22:48 <ynpvisitor86> pretty sure it was a long.
06:10:46 <ynpvisitor22> Lion IE
06:24:26 <Graham> when will the benches be covered by the snow?
07:08:20 <ynpvisitor65> :p Causes cancer.
07:08:51 <Kitt> glad I left when I did
07:09:06 <Kitt> was a very windy drive home
07:09:27 <Kevin L™> We will miss your reports.
07:09:52 <Kitt> 5 places where trees had fallen across the road, but had been removed on the lower loop
07:10:35 <Kitt> 2 other gazers had GT, but I didn't
07:11:26 <Betty> hi Kitt and Kevin
07:11:36 <Kevin L™> GT got a new server and it was iffy for a while.
07:11:40 <Kitt> so no gt, basically no radios in the basin, bears & bison on the loose, and the usual mix of visitors
07:11:42 <Kevin L™> Morning again Betty.
07:12:13 <ynpvisitor52> Did SteveO decide not to come?
07:12:35 <Kevin L™> Pretty good line at the west gate considering the weather.
07:13:08 <Kitt> some going places like walking on a 3/4 filled Spa to the waters edge, getting cussed out by a mom who was taking a photo of her young daughter
07:13:39 <Kitt> I politely said, "Excuse me but you need to get back on the boardwalk"
07:14:36 <Kitt> a few people thanked me for being helpful, giving directions, answering questions, keeping them or others safe
07:15:47 <Kitt> I could have stayed for another week, but the very few gazers that were in the upper basin were leaving this morning
07:15:59 <Kitt> and they said snow was on the way again
07:16:49 <Kitt> I did get Grand yesterday with a 5 or 6 Turban wait
07:17:15 <Kitt> and thanks to Dan Williams, I made it up to Beehive for the eruption before heading home
07:17:34 <Kitt> So is Castle erupting or just steaming?
07:17:46 <Betty> sounds you had a fun trip
07:17:47 <ynpvisitor22> Looks like it is IE
07:18:11 <ynpvisitor22> Been watching Castle for a while
07:18:50 <Kitt> didn't see it on the gt, so wondered
07:19:14 <Kitt> my gt says no reports yet
07:20:12 <Kitt> Lion
07:20:37 <Betty> yay, Lion
07:20:53 <Kitt> nice long series
07:30:21 <Kitt> number 52 and Kevin I pm'd you
07:31:01 <Kitt> oh I see 52 timed out
07:31:35 <Kitt> oh well have a good day
07:39:35 <Betty> SC ie
07:40:46 <Joe> Grand?
07:41:17 <Joe> Nope
07:41:26 <Betty> not that I see it
08:13:48 <Kevin L™> Looks like the cam got slimed.
08:14:03 <Betty> Dome ie
08:16:34 <Joe> Without that grand 0536 E, it was hard to find Grand on webcam at that time, but it was there :)
08:17:07 <Betty> yep
08:17:39 <Kevin L™> Think the cam is going to supply us with most times for a long time.
08:17:57 <Kevin L™> I will miss feet on the ground.
08:20:58 <Joe> I need to find a situation where I can spend much time on the park side of the cam.
08:23:05 <Joe> Hello DG
08:23:33 <ynpvisitor999> hi Betty, Graham, Joe and Kevin
08:23:37 <ynpvisitor999> and numbers
08:23:42 <Betty> hi DG
08:23:44 <Kevin L™> Hi.
08:24:34 <Kevin L™> BTW Betty, the kid is consistent. Didn't make 2 laps and finished last.
08:25:30 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
08:26:38 <Betty> wonder if it was a closed interval
08:27:03 <ynpvisitor999> 5h50m closed interval? Doubt it
08:27:41 <Betty> with this weather possible
08:28:18 <ynpvisitor999> I think there is another eruption around the 2h25m mark of that interval. As far as I can remember, the longest closed interval was around 3½h
08:28:32 <ynpvisitor999> maybe few minutes more or less
08:29:09 <Betty> there were closed intervals with way more than 5 hrs
08:29:26 <ynpvisitor999> there were? Wasn't aware of that
08:30:33 <ynpvisitor69> too much snow around 0730 to see the Daisy area.
08:31:15 <ynpvisitor999> I hope a logger picked up some temperature data around that time
08:42:48 <Betty> on June 24 2016 there was a closed interval on Daisy between eruptions at 1418 and 1948
08:43:20 <ynpvisitor999> that's a long interval
08:43:42 <Betty> yep
08:45:35 <Betty> Andrew stated it was a closed interval. I remembered it because I never heard of a long interval like this before :-)
08:46:06 <Betty> I think it was a windy day
08:46:19 <ynpvisitor999> that could explain it
08:48:44 <Betty> got to run, bbl
08:48:57 <ynpvisitor999> see you later
08:49:24 <Graham> why did it stop snowing?
08:51:25 <Graham> OF
08:51:47 <ynpvisitor999> terrible wind direction
08:52:01 <ynpvisitor999> not so bad now
08:52:13 <ynpvisitor999> and now it is
09:03:09 <Graham> sorry to hear the weather drove gazers away
09:22:12 <Joe> I know from past experience that Graham would be there as long as possible :) :)
09:23:25 <Graham> i did spend more time in the park this year than any other
09:25:23 <Graham> 4 full weeks
09:25:32 <Graham> need to make it more next year
09:25:41 <Joe> :)
09:30:32 <Graham> so 9 Lions but no NG?
09:32:36 <Joe> I'll have to study the capture more intently to see if there was a hint of NG
09:33:31 <Graham> Grand
09:34:02 <Graham> last series it started 1h after the 9th Lion but this series didnt continue like it did that time
09:39:28 <Joe> Was that a second or wishful thinking?
09:40:32 <Graham> wasnt watching closely but think wishful thinking
09:40:58 <Joe> Thanks
09:43:42 <Graham> would have been a very long second too :)
09:48:13 <Graham> interesting to see MA's ppst about Vixen jetting from n empth pool for hours yesterday
09:49:35 <Graham> Dave's auto correct feature is in full force today
09:59:48 <ynpvisitor999> SC ie
10:00:20 <Graham> dome ie
10:18:14 <Graham> of
10:19:03 <ynpvisitor999> 1h27m interval
10:20:44 <ynpvisitor999> icicle forming
10:32:42 <ynpvisitor999> second icicle forming
10:37:12 <Graham> looks like its all sliding down too
10:37:39 <ynpvisitor86> drip
10:37:53 <ynpvisitor86> drop
10:58:51 <ynpvisitor999> .
11:13:42 <Betty> I miss Sawmill -(
11:13:53 <Betty> :-(
11:19:22 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
11:51:28 <Graham> SC
11:51:50 <Betty> yep
11:53:38 <Graham> snow almost gone
11:57:21 <Graham> of
12:51:22 <Graham> Dome steam?
12:52:33 <Betty> I don´t see any
12:53:27 <Graham> ok. there was some on static but hard to know
12:53:34 <Graham> dont see any now
12:53:51 <Graham> thanks for showing it
12:57:23 <Betty> headed out, enjoy the rest of your Sunday
12:58:43 <Graham> bye Betty
13:43:39 <Graham> isnt it time for BH?
13:57:39 <Graham> zzzz
14:18:51 <ynpvisitor80> Anytime is BH time now.
14:24:40 <ynpvisitor69> bhi
14:24:52 <ynpvisitor69> not
15:32:24 <ynpvisitor80> Going to be another 22h interval Graham.
15:33:11 <Graham> i hope not
15:33:28 <Graham> wow that was quite a packers cowboys game
15:33:35 <Graham> 5 lead chenges in 4th qtr
15:33:55 <Graham> great job Packers
15:36:34 <ynpvisitor80> Didn't watch it. Still disgusted with the nfl.
15:37:10 <Graham> awesome game, Rogers took them down for a TD in 1m2s leaving 11s on the clock
15:37:53 <Graham> he also ran the ball when they had no timeouts left
15:37:58 <ynpvisitor80> The kid made it almost 2 laps last night and finished last. At least he is consistent.
15:38:20 <Graham> i read that earlier, so maybe a delay in getting on to NASCAR contract?
15:38:49 <Graham> not a good wind direction now
15:39:05 <Graham> nice splash. going to be a no-indi?
15:39:38 <Graham> odd that Pense went to a game and then walk out...why did he go in the first place?
15:40:02 <ynpvisitor80> Think so. He did entertain the crowd. Spun the thing out about 6 or 7 times just getting to the starting line.
15:40:14 <Graham> did you have fun last night anyway?
15:40:30 <ynpvisitor80> Would not be surprised with a no Indy.
15:43:38 <ynpvisitor80> It was great. Had to get 3 large guys to help push it on the trailer.
15:44:20 <Graham> haha, some work to do before the next spin?
15:45:15 <Graham> redskins move up in division without playing
15:48:17 <ynpvisitor80> Broke the axle. Next race is in April so he will have time to fix it.
15:49:08 <Graham> interesting view on VEC cam
15:51:30 <ynpvisitor80> Nice clouds
15:53:40 <ynpvisitor80> Another good BH splash
15:54:41 <ynpvisitor80> Daughter sent me a video of pretty heavy snow in Rexburg this morning.
15:55:43 <Graham> get your skis out
15:57:02 <ynpvisitor80> That is what the kid raced on last night. Back "tires" are metal skis.
15:59:15 <Graham> i am guessing ice racing isnt too big in your area
15:59:49 <ynpvisitor80> He did live in Canada for a while.
16:00:15 <ynpvisitor80> Ice hockey is doing well.
16:01:52 <ynpvisitor86> a lone BH watcher
16:02:01 <ynpvisitor86> Grand looks happy
16:02:32 <Graham> groblong?
16:02:58 <ynpvisitor86> or Turban, it is that time of year, steam everywhere
16:02:59 <Graham> i miss the Turban reports
16:03:18 <ynpvisitor86> no gazers and also, no app to report with
16:03:49 <Graham> did Jim leave for the season? I know Tara and Kitt left
16:04:05 <ynpvisitor86> Jim left Oct 2 I think
16:04:15 <Graham> k
16:04:17 <ynpvisitor86> before Kitt or Tara
16:04:32 <Graham> its the lull before closing week
16:04:48 <ynpvisitor86> not many people coming for closing, do you know of any?
16:05:12 <Graham> Steve E usually tries. Will likely
16:05:26 <ynpvisitor86> he is, he is the only one I know of
16:05:27 <Graham> not me
16:05:32 <Graham> never been in Nov
16:05:33 <ynpvisitor86> and not Will that I know of
16:05:51 <Graham> he tries to get in to set the monitors for winter
16:06:04 <ynpvisitor86> he is not on the permit
16:06:05 <Graham> but who knows
16:06:17 <ynpvisitor86> that would have to be Jeff Cross, do not think he is coming
16:06:40 <ynpvisitor86> nicer day than they said it would be
16:06:42 <Graham> ok
16:07:11 <ynpvisitor86> maybe BH will do 30 again
16:07:22 <Graham> Mar Apr Nov Dec are my missing months
16:07:26 <ynpvisitor86> it looks too splashy though
16:07:56 <Graham> no-indi eruption during Grand maybe?
16:08:03 <ynpvisitor86> ha, yes
16:08:14 <ynpvisitor80> :p
16:08:22 <ynpvisitor86> Hard to get in in November, depending on what day Monday is, it's closed
16:08:32 <ynpvisitor86> unless you want to go look for wolves and see Mammoth
16:08:55 <Graham> closing weel would get Nov
16:08:59 <ynpvisitor86> You are too busy in December with family
16:09:09 <ynpvisitor86> some years closing is Nov 2
16:09:15 <Graham> yep, hard to get there in the holidays
16:09:25 <Graham> March the snow is unreliable
16:09:39 <ynpvisitor86> March, no lodging at OF
16:09:45 <Graham> April would be easier to get
16:09:51 <ynpvisitor86> last year Snow Lodge closed Feb 28
16:10:15 <ynpvisitor86> there you go, a future goal
16:10:22 <Graham> thats early
16:10:38 <ynpvisitor86> yeah, Xanterra closes earlier and earlier
16:10:45 <Graham> going to try for 5 weeks next year as I have to take more leave then too
16:10:49 <ynpvisitor86> I think it had to do with Mammoth closing
16:11:24 <Graham> ok. Mammoth is back open this winter
16:19:40 <ynpvisitor80> I think both are waiting until the sun goes down.
16:20:48 <Graham> nobody left to turn them on?
16:24:52 <Graham> looks like some weather moving in
16:26:39 <ynpvisitor80> That is what they were waiting for.
16:35:14 <Graham> changed quickly
16:35:55 <Graham> dedicated OF watchers
16:36:50 <ynpvisitor86> quite the change up in 15 minutes
16:37:24 <ynpvisitor86> Grand
16:37:30 <Graham> SC
16:38:07 <ynpvisitor86> weird to see the wind take it that direction
16:40:41 <ynpvisitor86> at least it is not sliming the cam...yet
16:41:56 <Graham> and short
17:21:10 <ynpvisitor80> So much for a daylight BH.
17:22:31 <Graham> steam
17:23:19 <Graham> its spashy
17:34:22 <ynpvisitor80> Got 1m left in the window.
17:35:03 <Graham> maybe the predictor is broken too
17:35:44 <ynpvisitor80> Plus minus 4 hours?
17:36:40 <Graham> well it has been 9 to 30h, so +- a lot
17:37:50 <Graham> 5 of the last 20 have been longer
17:38:26 <ynpvisitor80> You may get it in tomorrow's shift.
17:38:52 <Graham> haha i think it will go before then
17:40:07 <ynpvisitor80> Probably during OF.
17:40:41 <ynpvisitor80> No Aurum today either.
17:40:42 <Graham> so now?
17:47:07 <Graham> goodnight
17:48:04 <ynpvisitor80> See you tomorrow
18:17:56 <ynpvisitor80> Moonrise 2109. 91%
19:19:10 <ynpvisitor100> Either Lion or BH
19:19:44 <ynpvisitor100> Looks more like Lion
19:19:49 <ynpvisitor69> Lion 2114 ini
19:19:58 <ynpvisitor100> Ty
20:03:01 <ynpvisitor10> Daisy
20:03:11 <ynpvisitor10> ie
20:05:08 <ynpvisitor10> Sure enjoyed yesterday's Beehive eruption
20:05:32 <ynpvisitor10> although it did shower me briefly, so my back was very damp
20:05:48 <ynpvisitor10> for my drive home
20:06:15 <ynpvisitor10> still don't have GT on my phone, very frustrating
20:08:31 <ynpvisitor10> I notice there isn't a Beehive prediction
20:13:03 <ynpvisitor100> You broke it.
20:13:48 <ynpvisitor10> no, but I do think it is trying to break
20:14:15 <ynpvisitor10> the 9 1/2 hour and 10 hour intervals aren't good
20:14:59 <ynpvisitor10> I did notice that we seem to be having a lot of Dome eruptions
20:15:36 <ynpvisitor10> it felt like once each week we would have eruptions for 2 or so days
20:17:19 <ynpvisitor10> it is just all over the place
20:17:38 <ynpvisitor10> 2 - 13 hour bees and now over 20 hours
20:21:26 <ynpvisitor10> is that splashing or is that indy?
20:22:20 <ynpvisitor100> I can't tell with my small screen
20:23:26 <ynpvisitor10> guess we will know within 20 minutes
20:26:12 <ynpvisitor10> Castle
20:27:09 <ynpvisitor84> Looks like Indy to me
20:27:46 <ynpvisitor10> wouldn't indy be straight under Lion?
20:28:08 <ynpvisitor84> But I would never talk out loud
20:29:10 <ynpvisitor84> Wishful thinking
20:35:17 <ynpvisitor10> Lion
20:35:58 <ynpvisitor10> Fluffy
20:43:58 <Kitt> it doesn't look like very much steam from Castle
20:52:09 <Kitt> well enjoy the bug
20:52:29 <Kitt> only 8 more months until I enjoy Yellowstone again
20:52:31 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
21:07:54 <ynpvisitor99> looks windy tonight
21:08:49 <Kevin L™> It does. Steam in BH area
21:09:21 <Kevin L™> Looks like more splashes
21:24:46 <ynpvisitor99> so was Old Faithful a long or a short?
21:25:10 <ynpvisitor99> it says N/A on GT
21:27:50 <ynpvisitor99> must have been a long since the previous one was a short
21:32:15 <ynpvisitor99> wonder if this will be a no indicator Beehive
21:35:34 <ynpvisitor69> For the last few eruptions, GT won't let me edit OF to add the long or short after the eruption ends. It gives an error.
21:35:53 <ynpvisitor69> the last OF was long
21:41:25 <ynpvisitor99> Lion
21:47:52 <Michael> BHI?
21:47:58 <ynpvisitor99> is that bhi?
21:48:18 <ynpvisitor99> Yes
21:48:20 <ynpvisitor99> indy
21:48:28 <Kevin L™> I think we have a winner
21:49:49 <ynpvisitor99> Beehive
21:49:50 <Michael> Beehive!
21:49:58 <ynpvisitor99> short indy
21:51:02 <Michael> Good thing I didn't snooze for the first 10 minutes.
21:53:38 <ynpvisitor99> At least Beehive erupted before Old Faithful
21:54:47 <Michael> Can't ask for better conditions on a chilly night.
21:56:00 <ynpvisitor99> bedtime, enjoy your night gazing
21:56:16 <Michael> good night.
21:59:36 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
