08:16:17 <Dave from B> Good morning Kevin
08:17:57 <Kevin L™> Morning. I wonder if BH was missed or if it hasn't gone.
08:20:09 <Dave from B> I've barely watched this morning. Triple chaos this week: Valentine's Day, Beginning of Lent and Chinese New Year
08:21:12 <Kevin L™> That should keep you busy. What do you sell for Valentines Day?
08:21:30 <Dave from B> Lobster Tails, King Crab mostly
08:21:51 <Dave from B> some shellfish, shrimp
08:23:56 <Kevin L™> High ticket items!
08:26:03 <Dave from B> Yep. Canada/Maine Lobster Tails are over $30/lb this year
08:26:50 <Kevin L™> Ouch!
08:28:08 <ynpvisitor603> Lobsters are only $4.99 a lb here ;)
08:28:33 <Dave from B> That's a whole live lobster...lot of waste
08:28:55 <Dave from B> Live lobsters cost me over $9/lb this week becasue of high demand week
08:29:23 <ynpvisitor603> Don't tell anyone that likes claws and tomalley
08:30:02 <ynpvisitor603> I've got a friend who uses a roller ping to get the meat out of the feet too
08:30:08 <ynpvisitor603> roller pin
08:30:51 <Dave from B> Asia demand for seafood is incredible. It drives up every market they get an interest in.
08:31:00 <ynpvisitor26> Kevin and Dave, the visibility was poor most of the night the few times there was visibility BH did not erupt, I suspect it erupted in one of those non-visibility times
08:31:18 <Dave from B> Thanks 26
08:32:11 <Kevin L™> Between no moon and snow these days are tough.
08:41:24 <ynpvisitor26> Lion
08:42:07 <Dave from B> I just checked. Yield on live lobster is 20%. So, your 4.99/lb live lobster is really $24.95/lb for the meat.
08:42:20 <Dave from B> wow
08:42:57 <ynpvisitor111> That is cool
08:43:17 <Dave from B> That is really fantastic
08:43:44 <JSJ> Geyser Hill exploded!
08:44:09 <ynpvisitor603> wow that looks incredible
08:45:13 <ynpvisitor26> Hello JSJ, long time no see
08:46:58 <JSJ> Howdy. Been busy with the new school term.
08:47:23 <JSJ> Can't wait 'til summer and watch some geysers in real life.
08:48:25 <ynpvisitor26> Yes I agree, it won't be long until then.
08:48:43 <JSJ> Field trips in wintertime aren't as fun.
08:48:59 <JSJ> Doing a short one today to an actively-drilling petroleum well here in east-central Ohio.
08:49:43 <JSJ> But I'd rather be at Fountain Paintpots in the warm sunshine.
08:50:10 <ynpvisitor26> That would be much more fun
09:08:59 <ynpvisitor26> They would feel better if they stood in the sunlight rather than the shade of the tree
09:10:59 <ynpvisitor26> Old faithful
09:14:00 <ynpvisitor26> Static looks nice
10:03:08 <ynpvisitor104> yay Lion
10:03:51 <ynpvisitor104> so did Beehive get missed?
10:04:14 <Kevin L™> Not sure
10:04:54 <ynpvisitor94> Dense fog all night long. Couldn't see much. Even Old Faithful was hard to see
10:05:07 <ynpvisitor104> oh
10:05:53 <ynpvisitor94> we are probably in Daisy's window
10:06:25 <Kevin L™> That looks like Daisy is ie
10:36:24 <Betty> morning all
10:36:36 <Kevin L™> hi
10:37:48 <Betty> hi Kevin
10:40:48 <Dave from B> Hi Betty
10:41:17 <Betty> Morning Dave from B
10:42:01 <Betty> hope for Grand soon
10:47:10 <Betty> Aurum on static
10:47:14 <Betty> .
10:47:14 <Betty> .
10:47:15 <Betty> .
10:47:15 <Betty> .
10:47:21 <Betty> .a nd stream
10:48:26 <Betty> OF did hide it mostly
10:48:31 <Kevin L™> OF steam blocked it on streaming.
10:49:04 <Betty> was huge on static
10:50:27 <Kevin L™> I was looking more toward Grand but I did see a frame with it when you pinged.
11:11:21 <Betty> Lion
11:11:56 <Betty> minor
11:12:15 <Kevin L™> Very minor
11:12:18 <Betty> looked more promising
11:12:52 <Kevin L™> Wonder if it will come back
11:13:53 <Kevin L™> End of party season for you today Betty?
11:14:30 <Betty> yes, last day. But I did not go out today, had to work
11:14:47 <Kevin L™> That does get in the way.
11:15:12 <Betty> haha, yes, sometimes it does :-)
11:19:14 <Kevin L™> Castle
11:35:30 <ynpvisitor18> Kevin depressed BH by staying up late watching that Russian Curler.
11:37:50 <Dave from B> There was a Russian in curlers?
11:38:10 <Kevin L™> They used the red stones.
11:38:19 <Kevin L™> Yes Dave.
11:42:14 <ynpvisitor18> Did they have stars on the stones?
11:43:19 <Kevin L™> No, but they did hit their shoe on the table...
11:55:22 <ynpvisitor101> when someone sees Aurum on static, how do they see it?
11:55:51 <ynpvisitor101> or where do they see it?
11:55:58 <ynpvisitor101> is it only a steam drift?
11:56:25 <Betty> it is between the trees on the left
11:56:39 <ynpvisitor101> can you see the plume, or just steam?
11:56:46 <Betty> you can see the water column
11:56:59 <ynpvisitor101> is it to the left of the far mound?
11:57:28 <Kevin L™> Almost out of the picture.
11:57:35 <ynpvisitor101> the mound right next to the first left tree, on geyser hill?
11:57:43 <Betty> depending when the frame is actualizing, you can tell for sure it is ie
11:57:54 <ynpvisitor101> oh you mean VERY left two trees
11:57:57 <ynpvisitor101> ?
11:58:03 <Betty> yep
11:58:05 <Kevin L™> Yes
11:58:20 <ynpvisitor101> there is hardly any room to see the hill there.
11:58:27 <ynpvisitor101> are there any captures?
11:58:42 <Betty> I will try to find one
11:58:49 <ynpvisitor101> thanks for the info, now I know where to look, and thanks Betty
11:59:55 <ynpvisitor101> Did Dave break Grand?
12:00:26 <ynpvisitor101> I checked in last night and visibility was zero
12:00:31 <ynpvisitor94> no
12:01:12 <Eric> https://www.dropbox.com/s/eexwk9x32t2f4qv/aurum.jpg?dl=0
12:01:26 <Eric> Hello :-)
12:01:32 <Dave from B> Grandc should be any minute
12:01:44 <Eric> That just shows where you would see aurum...aurum is NOT erupting in that screen capture
12:01:53 <Kevin L™> Right after Grandb
12:03:14 <Betty> http://geysercam.xyz/ugb/2018/01/01292018.html?t=46.271985
12:03:19 <Dave from B> Grandb = Turban
12:03:39 <Kevin L™> What is Granda?
12:04:10 <Betty> at 1307 Vent
12:04:50 <Eric> Here is the one from this morning: http://geysercam.xyz/aurum.jpg
12:05:06 <ynpvisitor603> Eric you should sticky that diagram ;)
12:05:24 <Dave from B> That's a typo, Kevin...Grand(p)a
12:05:35 <Eric> You like the giant red hand drawn Aurum :-P
12:05:47 <Kevin L™> Not too much longer for you...
12:05:51 <Dave from B> I was thinking gold crayon would have been better
12:05:59 <Eric> I can do that dave :-D
12:06:25 <Betty> hi Eric, btw :-)
12:08:36 <Eric> There ya go dave: http://geysercam.xyz/aurum.jpg
12:08:54 <Eric> An actual erupting Aurum with gold lettering :-P
12:10:09 <Betty> that is a nice one, Eric. For Kevin you need to draw a heart :heart:
12:10:34 <ynpvisitor603> So assuming no 7 hour grands we should get one soon
12:10:54 <ynpvisitor603> Guessing they pulled logger or had an inbasin rover observation from this morning?
12:11:00 <ynpvisitor603> Since they have a prediction...
12:11:40 <Eric> they must have....too bad they didn't bother logging it in GT :-
12:11:45 <Eric> :-(
12:16:12 <Kevin L™> Looks like Turban now
12:18:42 <Dave from B> Thanks Eric
12:20:19 <Dave from B> Just had a real good customer come in and spend $340, the most he's ever spent at one time. I didn't have the heart to tell him it was only the 3rd largest order today.
12:20:43 <Betty> OF
12:21:07 <Betty> great on static
12:21:29 <Kevin L™> Pretty good Dave.
12:21:55 <Kevin L™> That is a good static.
12:22:07 <Dave from B> This should be the largest day of the year so far but that title should only last for 1 day. Lots of last minute shoppers tomorrow.
12:22:22 <Dave from B> I love that Lion from this morning
12:24:41 <Eric> ahhh, gotta love the catholics as a fish monger :-P
12:25:15 <Dave from B> Valentines, Lent beginning and Chinese New Year all this week
12:25:52 <Eric> Do you put ads in the paper..."Don't be a sinner...eat FISH this friday!" :-P
12:26:22 <Eric> and "God will love you more if you eat fish other days too."
12:29:23 <Dave from B> nope, its....
12:29:43 <Dave from B> "Stay out of the doghouse; buy your wife seafood for Valentine's Day"
12:30:49 <Eric> So staying with the fear factor...I still like it!
12:31:10 <Eric> grand
12:31:12 <Eric> boom
12:31:13 <Eric> .
12:31:14 <Eric> .
12:31:14 <Eric> .
12:31:15 <Eric> .
12:45:29 <ynpvisitor101> not only is it Valentine's Dave, it is Ash Wednesday. Big fish day for Catholics
12:46:24 <Dave from B> Yes, calendar is weird this year. Easter is April Fool's Day as well
12:47:10 <Kevin L™> Is April Fool's day a big fish day?
12:47:11 <Dave from B> Ash Wednesday is actually a day of fasting for Catholics...actually not supposed to be eating anything
12:48:52 <Dave from B> That is why today is Fat Tuesday
12:56:06 <ynpvisitor603> Anyone want to log Grand?
12:57:13 <Betty> done
12:59:53 <Betty> seems to be icy
13:00:20 <Kevin L™> Good splash
13:37:16 <Betty> Daisy
13:41:57 <ynpvisitor101> Dave, I grew up Catholic and was NEVER taught that Ash Wednesday was a day of fasting. Just NO MEAT OR CHICKEN
13:42:29 <ynpvisitor101> it was always a big fish meal on Ash Wednesday
13:48:21 <Kevin L™> I always liked it when they would have to eat fish every Friday. The school lunch room would always have fish.
13:48:51 <ynpvisitor101> that is how it is through lent.
13:49:03 <ynpvisitor101> From Ash Wednesday to Easter, only fish on Fridays
13:50:06 <Kevin L™> Growing up it was every Friday. Mom would never cook fish so that was about the only time I got it.
13:53:28 <ynpvisitor101> I think my school did that too on Fridays
13:53:35 <ynpvisitor101> OF
13:54:14 <Kevin L™> Strong curtain
13:55:19 <ynpvisitor101> nice on static
13:56:22 <Kevin L™> My Grandpa gave my Mom some fresh rainbow trout. I was excited. She put this cream sauce all over them. :p Like putting ketchup on Porterhouse.
13:58:54 <ynpvisitor101> some people will only eat fish if it is disguised
13:59:20 <ynpvisitor101> thanks Eric, and Betty, for the static Aurum photos by the way. I appreciate it.
13:59:39 <Betty> yw
14:00:03 <Betty> Riverside
14:31:15 <Betty> Depression looks hot
14:35:12 <Dave from B> 101. there are all kinds of definitions on fasting but see this next link and it basically sounds like "no snacks"
14:35:28 <Dave from B> http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/liturgical-year/lent/catholic-information-on-lenten-fast-and-abstinence.cfm
14:38:35 <ynpvisitor101> thanks Dave
14:39:01 <ynpvisitor101> are you a practicing Catholic?
14:39:20 <Dave from B> 1 full meal and 2 half meals. That sounds like a normal day for me minus the 6 snacks:)
14:39:45 <Eric> No hard and fast rules...I know catholics that do both
14:41:06 <Dave from B> 101, I was a practicsing Catholic until about 18 months ago. Life has gotten so crazy busy that I've only been to church for Easter and Xmas. I know that is no excuse but that's me for now.
14:41:14 <Kevin L™> No hard and fast rules on Fasting? Would any rule on fasting be a fast rule?
14:41:32 <Eric> hahahaha
14:41:45 <Dave from B> No emoji on that from Eric so that was an unintended pun...no points!:)
14:42:08 <Eric> I should have quoted fast.
14:42:29 <Kevin L™> :) Couldn't resist.
14:44:22 <Eric> BH looks ready to rumble
14:44:36 <ynpvisitor101> GO BEE
14:44:41 <Kevin L™> BH keeps throwing up one of those encouraging splashes.
14:44:59 <ynpvisitor101> people visiting, now would be a good time
14:47:43 <Eric> is BHI splashy?
14:48:00 <Eric> Maybe wishful viewing :-D
14:48:20 <Kevin L™> It has been doing a few good ones.
14:48:42 <Kevin L™> Well BH anyway.
14:49:55 <Kevin L™> Hopefully BH isn't fasting.
14:50:17 <ynpvisitor101> can you see BHI splashes on cam? I mean before it actually starts.
14:50:25 <ynpvisitor40> It is in window.
14:50:31 <Kevin L™> No.
14:50:53 <Kevin L™> Wishful viewing. You may get a quick puff just before
14:51:26 <ynpvisitor40> Far as I know, indy does off like a shook up pop bottle being opened.
14:51:26 <Betty> With a very close view you can see it start steaming
14:51:48 <Betty> before it erupts
14:52:12 <ynpvisitor40> But indy has been shy this winter.
15:04:47 <Betty> I will be your sacrifice for a nice full sunlight BH. So just enjoy. Night all
15:05:10 <Kevin L™> night
15:08:20 <Dave from B> nite Betty. Thanks for taking one for the team!
15:08:23 <Eric> Night Betty!
15:08:28 <ynpvisitor101> bye Betty
15:32:28 <Dave from B> I sure hope BH's ints hold and we get one before dark
15:33:35 <Kevin L™> Me too
15:34:05 <Kevin L™> Does going without BH for a day constitute fasting?
15:34:22 <Dave from B> I call that a slow day
15:34:30 <Kevin L™> :0
15:35:09 <Kevin L™> I know you can make a slow horse fast by not feeding it.
15:36:40 <ynpvisitor40> We can eat all we want today. Wednesday is different
15:36:54 <Eric> Yes Dave...but even better when BH erupts, just look away.
15:37:17 <Eric> Fasting is not just for food :-D
15:37:45 <Eric> or maybe that is BH abstinence.
15:37:49 <Dave from B> hahahaha Eric
15:38:07 <Dave from B> More like BS, if you ask me
15:38:41 <ynpvisitor40> Speaking of BH.
15:39:36 <Dave from B> what? you see indy?
15:40:11 <Kevin L™> Not so fast Dave...
15:40:13 <ynpvisitor40> It had a real big burp, not sure if it was indy, or bubblers. Seems resting now
15:41:30 <Kevin L™> OF seems to be resting
15:42:22 <ynpvisitor101> is Dave giving up geysers for lent???
15:44:14 <ynpvisitor40> I think he is goig to give up fish
15:44:36 <Kevin L™> We won't see him until April Fools Day
15:44:37 <ynpvisitor40> Or was it soccer?
15:45:49 <Graham> do the geysers need a kickstart?
15:46:09 <Kevin L™> Dave isn't feeding them.
15:46:48 <Graham> maybe he is out collecting beads
15:47:14 <Eric> bison out near improbable
15:47:18 <Eric> I think
15:49:36 <ynpvisitor101> Dave cannot give up fish, he does not eat fish. It is supposed to be a HARDSHIP
15:50:26 <ynpvisitor40> Very nice anemone hiding back there, I think
15:54:29 <ynpvisitor101> wow, OF is way out of the prediction window
15:55:51 <Graham> over 2h?
15:56:39 <Kevin L™> Think so.
15:57:03 <Kevin L™> Well 1 hr
15:57:07 <Kevin L™> 2h
15:57:32 <Graham> nice
15:58:36 <ynpvisitor40> Well, BH will just have to do with out me watching.
16:00:44 <Graham> did it not go overnight?
16:01:17 <Kevin L™> review the replay and tell us
16:01:57 <Graham> that sounds like a trick
16:02:18 <Graham> not many night times ... no replay?
16:03:59 <Kevin L™> No view
16:04:34 <Graham> we should have sent Tristan out there to keep an eye on it
16:35:52 <Will B> Thank you to those that are supporting us on patreon. we are up to $64 already!
16:45:43 <ynpvisitor94> daisy
17:11:33 <ynpvisitor23> BH would sure look nice now
17:12:13 <Graham> so would Giant
17:13:55 <Graham> no bubblers?
17:14:28 <Graham> haha now OF goes early
17:16:18 <ynpvisitor23> nice light
17:16:51 <ynpvisitor23> last time it was on the other side of the window
17:17:20 <Graham> just trying to avearge itself out
17:20:13 <ynpvisitor23> Graham, did you look at the Fountain times yesterday?
17:21:04 <ynpvisitor23> more sky, less gravel please...
17:22:33 <Graham> hum, i see now. Tristan said she was at SL at 1030, so maybe it was later - doesnt take long from Ftn to OF usually
17:23:08 <Graham> wonder if we will get logger data?
17:26:01 <Will B> if it doesnt fail we will
17:26:07 <Graham> over an hour would be long, was just 25m when I saw it
17:26:13 <Will B> also tristan was certain on the time
17:26:35 <Will B> they did stop and watch it a bit from the road
17:27:16 <Graham> maybe the later time is off?
17:27:23 <Will B> who knows
17:28:03 <Graham> well someone needs to go and check the runoff channels before it snows
17:28:10 <Graham> they had snow in them when i went by
17:28:30 <Graham> who can we send?
17:29:08 <Kevin L™> Dave is closest but he made a fast getaway today.
17:29:27 <Graham> or Will or Maureen
17:29:54 <Graham> send TRR out to recon :)
17:29:59 <Graham> RR
17:47:15 <Graham> some color
17:59:25 <Eric> stream dead?
18:03:56 <kcmule> 3 very inanimate birds on my screen
18:04:17 <ynpvisitor23> nice sunset on mine
18:04:40 <Graham> so you cant see Giant, BH, and Giantess all erupting?
18:04:51 <Graham> ooh Aurum too
18:15:02 <ynpvisitor23> no BH before dark
18:25:21 <kcmule> back online
18:25:39 <Graham> wb
18:37:36 <Kevin L™> Grand ie
22:03:03 <ynpvisitor80> OF 2202
22:39:23 <Kitt> looked like Lion might have been ie
