05:39:34 <Dave from B> Hi Betty
05:39:57 <Betty> no, BW Dwarf
05:43:10 <Dave from B> Betty, in the US we measure snow in inches...Do you use centimeters or meters in Germany?
05:43:37 <Betty> cm
05:51:41 <Betty> seems to be Grotto or Arti
06:11:32 <Betty> Oblong??
06:11:51 <ynpvisitor18> Looks like it
06:17:46 <Betty> OF
06:22:00 <Betty> Daissy ie
06:26:33 <Betty> hey, go away, bad weather! :-(
06:26:54 <Betty> look how fast that came in
06:27:04 <Betty> crazy
06:27:31 <Betty> morning Kent
06:27:33 <ynpvisitor...> Afternoon Betty.
06:27:48 <ynpvisitor...> That one bench just won't go away.
06:28:04 <Betty> it is heated ;-)
06:28:41 <Betty> BH is due
06:28:45 <Betty> :-p
06:28:51 <ynpvisitor...> That's cute>(
06:29:41 <Betty> we just had a nice and clear closeup on Daisy erupting
06:30:03 <Dave from B> Morning Kent.
06:30:16 <Betty> now you can barely see OF cone
06:30:27 <ynpvisitor...> Hey Dave
06:30:43 <Dave from B> How is MA doing? Is she snowed in until April?
06:31:18 <ynpvisitor...> I haven't heard, but would imagine. Storm due down here about noon.
06:31:47 <ynpvisitor...> 50° right now
06:31:55 <Dave from B> Nice to hear you're finally getting some snow
06:32:16 <ynpvisitor...> Not counting chickens, but do have hope.
06:32:52 <Dave from B> We woke up to another 3" with 3-6 additional expected later today. Only 3 people stuck on my way to work this morning
06:33:39 <ynpvisitor...> All winter the water has stopped right at the Idaho border:(
07:17:52 <Dave from B> Is Will still at OF?
07:18:28 <Betty> not sure
07:19:03 <Betty> I think Art said he is there until monday
07:20:16 <ynpvisitor36> Who cares about the view? Let's go racing!
07:20:55 <Betty> morning Kevin
07:21:16 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty.
07:21:26 <Dave from B> Hold your horses. You still have 3 hours
07:21:47 <ynpvisitor9> no Will posts since 1610 yesterday, my guess he has left
07:23:15 <Dave from B> Thanks 9. With Monday a holiday, I thought he might still be around.
07:32:01 <ynpvisitor18> 2.
07:36:32 <ynpvisitor99> Eeryone sing along. "I'm dreaming of a white President's Day"
07:40:40 <ynpvisitor111> Daves snowblower
07:44:01 <Dave from B> I might need something that size pretty soon
07:48:47 <ynpvisitor111> Dave this is not very far from you but is soon how billings will look
07:49:52 <Betty> Will is still there
07:52:01 <Dave from B> Thanks, 111. Yep...lots of snow at Glacier as well
07:54:27 <ynpvisitor90> Can't tell if bh went. No new ice on boardwalk. A bit of snow around it. But not splashing much if at all
07:54:46 <ynpvisitor90> And I leave tomorrow afternoon
07:55:06 <Dave from B> Thanks Will
07:55:07 <Betty> hi Will, thanks! :-)
07:56:04 <Dave from B> Is there an ice bowl at Aurum yet?
08:00:20 <Kevin L™> Did I mention how much I like living in the desert?
08:01:19 <Dave from B> I thought you moved?
08:01:49 <Kevin L™> I get another *&$##@^&#^%^^%&%#%^#&(*^*%&%$*(*^(&%&#$&*%n jury summons, i will!
08:02:38 <Dave from B> haha. Have you had to serve yet?
08:04:56 <Kevin L™> I have had to show up at the place about 10 times but never get selected.. I wonder if my "I :heart: my AK-47" shirt may have something to do with that.
08:05:24 <Dave from B> :D
08:06:16 <Dave from B> Most don't want small business owners either
08:08:21 <Kevin L™> One time it was for a guy who assaulted a Police Officer. The defender ask if any of us had served on the Police Force or in the Military. He asked if I felt I could be impartial. I told him I would tend to side with the good guy. He sent me packing. I guess that told the others who the good guy was.
08:09:11 <Dave from B> Yep
08:09:35 <Kevin L™> Sure told me.
08:10:52 <Dave from B> Well, off to run some errands before the race. Have a great day everyone
08:11:11 <Kevin L™> Pretty wild race last night. 5 overtimes and a rookie won by about 4 inches.
08:11:29 <Kevin L™> And the Knights won to boot!
08:11:57 <Kevin L™> That makes them the top team in the NHL.
08:12:02 <Betty> see ya Dave
08:12:14 <Kevin L™> Later Dave.
08:14:31 <Dave from B> 30 days til sprring!
08:36:50 <ynpvisitor...> I have hope we are going to lose the bench today
08:43:45 <Betty> Grand
09:03:21 <ynpvisitor90> Betty your oblong dis not happen. Still covered in snow
09:04:00 <Betty> ok, thanks for checking. wonder what it was then
09:11:17 <Betty> oohhh, I can see :-)
09:17:55 <Kevin L™> Snow is supposed to let up tomorrow but it will be very cold.
09:18:41 <Kevin L™> Odd seismo chart today. Lots of shot heavy spikes.
09:18:53 <Kevin L™> short
09:21:30 <Eric> Morning Kevin
09:21:41 <Eric> That is a lot of shakin going on up at hebgen!
09:21:41 <Kevin L™> Morning Eric.
09:21:54 <Betty> morning Eric
09:21:56 <Eric> Morning Betty too!
09:22:43 <Betty> well, I would not call it morning ;-)
09:23:20 <Eric> It's morning someplace :-P
09:23:33 <Betty> haha, yep
09:24:32 <Kevin L™> Looks like a swarm of 2.5 +/- quakes just NW of West.
09:28:38 <Eric> looks like morning here:
09:29:09 <Eric> Kevin, that point seems to be the epicenter of many swarms
09:33:57 <Kevin L™> It was pretty active last year too.
09:34:02 <Eric> Here is a google map of that location:,-111.0179777,3103m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351b4a13c99d331:0x61c352040faebc79!8m2!3d44.787014!4d-111.2398926
09:34:46 <Kevin L™> Supposed to get down to -20° tomorrow.
09:54:34 <Betty> daisy ie
09:54:35 <Kevin L™> Daisy ie
10:02:27 <ynpvisitor90> THat is cold for Vegas
10:03:03 <ynpvisitor90> SO what will be worse watching? Nascar or Olympics?
10:03:41 <Kevin L™> Race last night got pretty ugly
10:17:07 <ynpvisitor14> Is OF over 2 hours now?
10:17:39 <ynpvisitor77> Unless we missed a ver short interval somehow
10:17:45 <Kevin L™> 2h11m
10:18:17 <ynpvisitor14> Wow, it’s been a while since it went that long
10:18:57 <ynpvisitor14> NPS would have caught a short
10:19:18 <ynpvisitor14> People still waiting
10:20:43 <ynpvisitor77> OF was not vissible from 1050 to 1103. The OFVEC had the previous eruption as a short.
10:22:49 <ynpvisitor77> After looking closely at the recording, it may have erupted at 1051
10:23:02 <ynpvisitor14> The VEC phone message says it has not erupted and we could be watching history
10:23:23 <Betty> it´s broken
10:23:32 <ynpvisitor14> You would think someone on site would have seen it
10:23:51 <ynpvisitor77> I just got a call from the ofvec. They think they missed the eruption.
10:23:56 <ynpvisitor112> The end is here, close up shop, Old Faithful is dormant.
10:24:48 <ynpvisitor14> Ha! They should change their message!!
10:25:09 <ynpvisitor14> 1055 would have been very short
10:25:39 <Betty> maybe with the EQ swarm?
10:25:52 <ynpvisitor14> You would think someone would have seen the eruption and told the VEC.
10:27:04 <Betty> very short is not impossible
10:29:28 <ynpvisitor14> Yet you’d expect someone on site would have noticed
10:29:57 <ynpvisitor77> They were not looking for it at that time. At least that is what they said.
10:31:15 <ynpvisitor...> Perhaps video review will show people walking away?
10:31:48 <ynpvisitor14> No preplay even. Surprised a tourist was not out there to report it.
10:32:16 <ynpvisitor14> What about static review for that?
10:32:44 <ynpvisitor77> To answer your question there were no peole around OF at that time. I'm currently looking at the video and still cam captures.
10:32:50 <ynpvisitor14> That’s where most people congregate
10:33:07 <ynpvisitor14> Thanks 77
10:33:52 <ynpvisitor14> Not a nice day to wait 90 minutes for OF
10:34:42 <ynpvisitor...> Cooks at Geyser Grill probably pulling their hair out
10:35:31 <ynpvisitor14> There will be some cold people headed their way after
10:35:34 <ynpvisitor91> Bee could be going right now any you'd never know.
10:35:49 <ynpvisitor112> As a past concessionaire, pulling hair is a constant endeavor at Old Faithful.
10:36:04 <ynpvisitor...> :)
10:36:51 <ynpvisitor77> hopefully not out of the food.
10:37:39 <ynpvisitor14> I think we’d see BH. All this wait and it will be white on white.
10:37:55 <ynpvisitor112> I've been watching for Beehive steam.
10:39:57 <ynpvisitor...> Interesting interval.
10:43:57 <SnowSnowSnow> of
10:44:12 <ynpvisitor77> finally
10:44:16 <Betty> OF
10:44:20 <SnowSnowSnow> greetingsfrom VA where theres no snow
10:44:45 <ynpvisitor91> of ie
10:46:10 <Betty> short?
10:46:24 <Betty> yep
10:46:56 <SnowSnowSnow> it does that
10:47:09 <ynpvisitor91> The weather is clearing a bit.
10:47:28 <SnowSnowSnow> blue sky at west entrance?
10:47:30 <ynpvisitor91> What's the steam on the left?
10:47:35 <SnowSnowSnow> Maureen will like that
10:47:36 <Betty> visitor worm on static
10:47:49 <SnowSnowSnow> dep?
10:47:51 <ynpvisitor77> 118 look at the previous discussion. You may understand why Betty asked the question.
10:48:09 <ynpvisitor77> sorry I meant SnowSnow Snow not 118
10:49:25 <ynpvisitor23> it's a very normal double interval for OF
10:50:07 <ynpvisitor77> but confusing while we were in the middle of it.
11:30:25 <ynpvisitor999> possible 46m interval on OF?! Gotta be one of the shortest of intervals in recent times
11:32:30 <ynpvisitor999> by the way, the spikes seen on the seismo can be seen on almost all seismos in Yellowstone, even on the Norris Museum seismo
11:33:31 <ynpvisitor999> Norris Museum seismo is probably one of the most insensitive seismos around in the park, so they must be either near it or be fairly powerful
11:33:53 <ynpvisitor999> Dome
11:35:49 <ynpvisitor77> M 2.8 - 13km NE of West Yellowstone, Montana Time 2018-02-18 09:43:06 (UTC-08:00) Location 44.748°N 110.983°W Depth 10.6 km
11:36:54 <SnowSnowSnow> blue sky appearing
11:38:00 <SnowSnowSnow> electric peak looks nice
11:44:31 <ynpvisitor999> I think this explains why I'm seeing so much red spikes on the seismo:
11:45:14 <ynpvisitor77> go to here
11:46:42 <ynpvisitor999> thanks
11:53:01 <ynpvisitor49> OF
12:01:35 <ynpvisitor114> So did we miss bh in the storm?
12:03:14 <SnowSnowSnow> Will hasnt posted it, can't have happened
12:03:41 <ynpvisitor...> this is my hope :)
12:03:59 <SnowSnowSnow> last post was Spa an hour ago, so who knows
12:10:04 <ynpvisitor999> Dome
12:18:32 <ynpvisitor114> Is the radio working?
12:21:52 <ynpvisitor114> Kevin, I gave up on the race. Speed skating is better. Well anything is better.
12:22:15 <ynpvisitor114> Good thing you are a fan, they have at least one.
12:25:06 <SnowSnowSnow> isnt it the same, they go round and round and sometimes crash out?
12:26:09 <ynpvisitor114> Long track is a bit different. Not supposed to crash.
12:26:33 <ynpvisitor114> And it is team, so if you crash, you are in big trouble.
12:34:17 <SnowSnowSnow> whetre did the blue sky go?
12:34:34 <ynpvisitor114> KEvin did it
12:34:55 <ynpvisitor77> Your name says it all
12:35:34 <SnowSnowSnow> its to make Maureen happy
12:49:42 <ynpvisitor114> Who put the haze filter on the cam?
12:49:45 <ynpvisitor999> Dome ie
12:52:27 <ynpvisitor114> Well that may be. BH UV.
12:53:28 <ynpvisitor114> Over and Out
12:56:37 <ynpvisitor999> Will is in the Bulger area
13:06:18 <ynpvisitor67> wwwwwww (waving)
13:06:38 <ynpvisitor999> *virtual wave*
13:07:15 <ynpvisitor67> ;)
13:37:38 <ynpvisitor23> Did the basin get any blue sky between storms?
13:38:25 <ynpvisitor23> 77, was the 1352 OF big?
13:39:23 <ynpvisitor999> OF ns
13:39:36 <ynpvisitor999> or not
13:39:48 <ynpvisitor999> must be low wind speed
13:39:51 <ynpvisitor77> OF ne actually
13:40:12 <ynpvisitor23> OF was 1535
13:40:56 <ynpvisitor23> wonder if anyone tried to take a photo?
13:41:30 <ynpvisitor77> 1352 OF was normal, maybe a little short the top didn't fgo out of the frame. Duration wasn't abnormal either.
13:41:43 <ynpvisitor23> thank you.
13:41:59 <ynpvisitor23> are you leaning toward the short interval in between?
13:42:12 <ynpvisitor999> Castle 1539
13:42:39 <ynpvisitor23> Glad Will could see it from Bulger
13:53:18 <ynpvisitor999> afternoon kc
13:55:33 <ynpvisitor77> Depending on where he was he may have heard it more than seen it.
13:58:42 <ynpvisitor999> Turban 1555
14:15:58 <kcmule> hello
14:19:12 <ynpvisitor999> Grand 1617 G--
14:19:33 <ynpvisitor999> 5h35m interval
14:19:55 <ynpvisitor999> I think it's trying to do 5 in 24 hours
14:20:47 <ynpvisitor999> maybe to redeem itself for doing a few interval that were 6h45m+
14:30:30 <ynpvisitor999> Grand G2Q, d=10m42s
14:31:07 <ynpvisitor77>
14:42:17 <ynpvisitor999> can't see anything
14:51:36 <ynpvisitor...> With luck no bench by morning. Perhaps no Old Faithful Geyser sign too :)
15:09:35 <ynpvisitor999> OF
15:09:36 <ynpvisitor...> OF 1709 wc
15:13:41 <ynpvisitor999> benches seem to be covered again
16:05:26 <ynpvisitor...> It is going to have to be a BIG critter if we hope to see it. Perhaps a Dire Wolf?
16:16:43 <ynpvisitor78> Is that a wolf from Dierland?
16:24:28 <ynpvisitor...> Perhaps, but I think they spoke Gaelic and ate Leprechauns
19:05:59 <ynpvisitor105> Beehive 2105 ie ?
21:16:27 <ynpvisitor38> Possible Northern lights tonight if we can see through the clouds.
