04:13:37 <Betty> morning all
04:13:56 <Joe> Hi Betty
04:14:08 <Betty> yay, Echinus seems to be back :-)
04:14:19 <Betty> morning Joe
04:45:57 <Betty> OF
05:29:18 <ynpvisitor999> yay, Echinus is back!
05:31:08 <ynpvisitor999> coincidence or not, the first eruption took place on my birthday. Nice birthday present from Yellowstone :)
05:33:09 <ynpvisitor999> that is, on December 1
05:33:52 <Joe> >>> Happy Birthday <<< yesterday
05:35:13 <ynpvisitor999> thanks Joe :)
05:48:08 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
05:48:18 <ynpvisitor999> would likely be 0747
06:09:15 <Betty> time for Christmas Market. see ya
06:09:47 <ynpvisitor999> bye Betty
06:49:27 <ynpvisitor43> Christmas market sounds fun.
06:50:02 <ynpvisitor999> morning Kevin
06:53:31 <Kevin L™> Morning, or should I say afternoon?
06:53:39 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon
06:59:34 <ynpvisitor999> Grand
07:09:31 <ynpvisitor999> for anyone not knowing this yet: Echinus reactivated yesterday morning between 1030 and 1100-ish :)
07:12:17 <Joe> 2nd?
07:13:03 <Kevin L™> It looked like it but not really sure.
07:13:18 <ynpvisitor999> I have absolutely no idea, Joe. Would be nice if it were to be a second
07:13:48 <Kevin L™> It wasn't really big so it could have just been late high spikes.
07:14:18 <Joe> there seemed to be a pause then more stesm but too steamy to see spike
07:18:21 <Joe> I just noticed on the phone app there is no place to enter single burst, as like on gt computer.
08:47:54 <Graham> Joe you can add burst count on the app, once you select Grand it gives you the code entry fields including Bursts
09:09:16 <Joe> Thanks Graham

09:29:21 <ynpvisitor2> Long
09:34:44 <Graham> riverside
09:38:15 <ynpvisitor118> Any one figure out if the critter in question on the capture that was talked about Yesterday was a coyote or wolf?
09:39:11 <ynpvisitor2> Lion
09:39:18 <ynpvisitor2> at 1138.
09:39:26 <ynpvisitor118> :lion:
09:42:47 <Graham> is there a link to something for the wolf? I see the March link which is a wolf
09:44:39 <ynpvisitor118> In the log Yesterday for the link is best I can do. It shows up in the times given later in the conversation at the end of the boardwalk on the static cam.
09:52:02 <Graham> found it at 0852 frame, 14s in
09:52:33 <Graham> likely a coyote
09:52:54 <Graham> but it does have fairly long legs
09:53:14 <Graham> have to post it to a wolf watcher page and they can probably name it too
09:53:43 <Graham> i assume it never showed up on the stream
10:19:28 <ynpvisitor118> Don't know. Do the wolf watchers have names for coyotes?
10:20:52 <Graham> probably not but we name them here - e.g. the 4pm coyote
10:54:58 <ynpvisitor999> OF 1254
11:13:15 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy 1312
11:43:51 <Graham> Castle
11:44:02 <Graham> pretty early - lets see if it can major
11:49:56 <ynpvisitor999> hmm, not really in for a major I think
11:50:40 <Graham> nope
11:51:53 <ynpvisitor999> ~5m, so I think next eruption in about 5-7 hours
12:01:42 <Graham> snow is melting :(
12:02:50 <ynpvisitor999> at least you have snow there. The first snow is yet to be falling where I am, though some parts of my country have already had their first thin layer of snow few days ago
12:03:04 <ynpvisitor999> Aurum!
12:03:05 <ynpvisitor999> .
12:03:06 <ynpvisitor999> .
12:03:06 <ynpvisitor999> .
12:03:50 <Graham> nice catch
12:04:55 <ynpvisitor999> anyway, got to go
12:04:57 <ynpvisitor999> bye all
12:05:16 <Graham> its a shame that after the good snow at the begining of Nov it couldnt stay around
12:06:11 <Graham> theres a little nbubbler steam
12:11:29 <Kevin L™> :p
12:11:43 <Graham> wb Kevin
12:11:54 <Graham> just in time for OF
12:14:55 <Kevin L™> Well I did get to see one of my favorite things in steam today anyway.
12:16:08 <Graham> a train?
12:17:19 <Kevin L™> Yep. Dan has his steamer at the museum. Been two years since I have seen it.
12:17:41 <Graham> nice
12:19:21 <Graham> dep
12:25:29 <Graham> grotto
12:28:14 <ynpvisitor105> are the benches bare again?
12:29:09 <ynpvisitor105> looks like the snow is building up under them a bit
12:29:24 <Graham> they have not managed to be covered yet ... and its pretty sad
12:29:39 <Graham> its been melting today
12:29:54 <ynpvisitor105> yesterday a person walked out toward them and there was quite a bit near them
12:30:21 <ynpvisitor105> I don't get why it's sad
12:30:29 <Graham> they need snow
12:30:34 <ynpvisitor105> why?
12:30:38 <Graham> season opens in less than 2 weeks and theres very little snow
12:30:41 <ynpvisitor105> snowpack is well above normal
12:30:52 <Graham> its important for fire supression next summer too
12:31:32 <ynpvisitor86> wonder if the roads have been groomed and packed down enough for opening travel
12:31:33 <Graham> it was good early Nov but it all melted in the basin
12:31:52 <Graham> there is some snow at West - it was bare earlier this week
12:31:59 <Graham> at the west gate
12:32:01 <Graham> of
12:32:49 <ynpvisitor105> it's deceiving. Maybe 2 inches there
12:33:04 <ynpvisitor105> new, at the gate
12:47:54 <Graham> .
12:47:54 <Graham> .
12:47:55 <Graham> .
12:47:55 <Graham> .
12:47:55 <ynpvisitor105> BH
12:47:56 <Graham> .
12:47:56 <Kevin L™> At least I was here for this.
12:47:58 <ynpvisitor105> BH
12:48:04 <ynpvisitor105> yes, me too
12:48:22 <ynpvisitor105> that was fun, to watch it start up
12:48:33 <Kevin L™> Thanks to a good Bogart movie.
12:48:46 <ynpvisitor105> swirling
12:48:58 <ynpvisitor105> 1447 not 27
12:49:04 <ynpvisitor105> whoever texted
12:49:22 <ynpvisitor105> people will think their text showed up late...
12:49:23 <Graham> sorry ...
12:49:32 <Kitt> thanks for the text
12:49:38 <Kitt> yay Beehive
12:49:39 <ynpvisitor105> see Kitt comes anyway
12:50:01 <Kitt> my phone whistles and my watch buzzes
12:50:13 <Kitt> I just note the code
12:50:15 <Graham> its a bit of a givaway since theres never a 20m lag
12:50:18 <ynpvisitor105> nice short interval
12:50:42 <Graham> i have a custom ring for geyser alerts
12:50:48 <ynpvisitor105> kitt, if you open the text you would see the time
12:50:55 <ynpvisitor105> do you Graham?
12:50:57 <Graham> so i dont react when its a regular text
12:51:04 <ynpvisitor105> I like that idea
12:51:46 <ynpvisitor105> there's a little snow on the bw
12:51:51 <Graham> same in basin especially in basin ... phone makes noises = move to BH and dont bother fumbling to read the text in the cold
12:52:00 <Graham> especially in winter
12:52:01 <Kitt> but either it is indy or beehive
12:52:20 <Kitt> so why take the time to check when I can be logging on
12:52:21 <ynpvisitor105> yes, I agree Kitt. You got here in good time
12:52:28 <Graham> hardly any snow there
12:52:30 <ynpvisitor105> I agree totally
12:53:07 <Kitt> next storm is coming in tomorrow
12:53:39 <ynpvisitor105> that was nice
12:53:50 <Graham> you can see the railings = no snow
12:53:51 <Kitt> very nice
12:54:11 <Kitt> I was going to check on Bee, but was watching the end of The Greatest Game
12:54:27 <Graham> no indi before or during BH?
12:54:49 <Kitt> nope
12:54:56 <Joe> Did not see one
12:55:15 <Kitt> well, have a good day and thanks again for the text
12:55:54 <ynpvisitor105> Bye Kitt
