07:46:51 <ynpvisitor603> Weird pipe/something on the Mount Washburn Northeast cam
07:49:37 <ynpvisitor61> strange don't see it on yesterdays archive
07:50:19 <ynpvisitor603> Yeah checked the time lapse and it wasn't there
07:51:39 <ynpvisitor603> It's moved a little since I first noticed it
07:55:03 <ynpvisitor603> Made me wonder if they're going forward with that cell tower redesign
07:55:31 <ynpvisitor603> It's definitely moving around from frame to frame
07:57:14 <ynpvisitor61> yep it sure is
08:12:13 <ynpvisitor603> Maybe it's something they use on the tower to get it open for the season, just guessing
08:14:17 <ynpvisitor61> Looks to me like one of their 900 mhz radio antennas has broke loose from the tower and is swinging in the breeze.
08:15:31 <ynpvisitor61> they will know when the feed line breaks and they loose communications
08:16:20 <ynpvisitor603> https://bloximages.chicago2.vip.townnews.com/idahostatejournal.com/content/tncms/assets/v3/editorial/d/9d/d9d3030c-bddb-566d-8de8-aaa9d40b64ff/59dfead5790ea.image.jpg?resize=1200%2C743
08:18:04 <ynpvisitor61> is that the washburn site picture?
08:19:55 <ynpvisitor603> I believe that's what it currently looks like, pulled it from an article in the Billings Gazette
08:19:56 <ynpvisitor603> http://billingsgazette.com/news/state-and-regional/wyoming/yellowstone-lookout-project-to-improve-cell-service-would-hurt-views/article_e1af1a64-82cf-5539-8a32-a22690011047.html
08:20:13 <ynpvisitor61> sno-cat trip for the communications techs soon
08:20:59 <ynpvisitor603> Here's the proposed new tower
08:21:00 <ynpvisitor603> http://billingsgazette.com/news/state-and-regional/montana/yellowstone-considers-cellphone-service-upgrade/article_18b7792f-29e5-586e-9360-14a8599bbf37.html
08:27:23 <ynpvisitor61> there is a bent pole on the right in your picture, maybe that is floting in the wind
08:29:08 <ynpvisitor61> floating*
08:46:17 <Dave from B> Park opens Friday?
08:47:57 <ynpvisitor68> Bet your bippy!
08:48:44 <ynpvisitor59> You are dating yourself 68
08:49:41 <ynpvisitor68> Laugh-In
08:50:18 <Kevin L™> Yep. Where is the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate when we need it?
08:51:07 <ynpvisitor68> Off looking for a Walnetto?
08:52:07 <Kevin L™> I can't find them anymore. They used to have them in Beatty near Death Valley.
08:52:25 <Kevin L™> I think you can get them on Amazon though.
08:53:15 <Kevin L™> Yep. https://smile.amazon.com/Old-Time-Candy-Walnettos-Plastic/dp/B01KB9EWNA/ref=sr_1_2_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1523890371&sr=8-2&keywords=walnettos+candy&dpID=41xnCoQ4GeL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
08:58:02 <ynpvisitor18> just noticed my geyser times app disappeared off my phone
08:58:35 <ynpvisitor18> I had an e-mail about a new one, but don't have that e-mail anymore either
08:59:40 <ynpvisitor61> mine (android) is still there
09:00:48 <Dave from B> Morning Kevin...how's the waether in Bristol today?
09:00:50 <ynpvisitor18> mine android isn't there
09:01:29 <ynpvisitor18> hm
09:02:19 <Kevin L™> Still watching the first bit from yesterday Dave.
09:03:10 <Dave from B> oops. Thought you would have heard about rain delay...sorry
09:04:22 <Kevin L™> I did know about the rain delay. Just catching up before it goes live. Still haven't watched the final stage of the Saturday race.
09:04:36 <ynpvisitor...> I was thinking about Artie & Ruth recently, #MeToo vs Elder Abuse. My money was always on Ruth
09:05:25 <Kevin L™> I like the "News of the Future" Amazing on how close they were!
09:06:14 <ynpvisitor...> The times they b a changin
09:07:32 <Kevin L™> I also like that they left the NBC Peacock on the begining.
09:07:55 <ynpvisitor...> I had forgotten that
09:09:49 <Kevin L™> Kids thought it was strange that they would tell you a program was in color. Most of us really would have never known if they wouldn't have said anything.
09:10:44 <ynpvisitor...> "Living Color"
09:11:18 <Kent> Won't let me change
09:11:52 <ynpvisitor61> do /quit then /join

09:23:17 <Jimbo Berkelium> Berkelium-249 has a half-life of 330 days
09:23:24 <Jimbo Berkelium> but never mind that, Indy is on
09:23:31 <Kevin L™> It just does not like my shift.
09:23:39 <ynpvisitor...> This is a treat!
09:24:41 <Kevin L™> I did get the one last night on my iPad.
09:25:07 <Kitt> I can't even find where the quit and join option are on my app
09:25:15 <Kitt> at least I get to see bee
09:25:43 <Kitt> haven't been able to log in on gt since last fall
09:26:04 <Kitt> I think the geysers are just cutting me off of electronic stuff
09:26:07 <ynpvisitor61> 18 the quit join pertains to this chat, when you cannot change your name
09:26:13 <Kevin L™> Glad you got on this time!
09:26:42 <Kitt> I can bring it up on my computer, just not my phone
09:27:27 <Kitt> went to check gt this morning and the icon was gone from home page on phone
09:28:31 <ynpvisitor78> check the apps section on your phone, that's where mine went
09:29:12 <Kitt> yes, I found it there, but I like the icon on home page and I can't seem to switch it back there
09:29:31 <Rice> There is a Gysertime App??
09:29:44 <Kitt> yes
09:30:00 <Eric> Morning
09:30:17 <Kevin L™> Hi
09:30:19 <Rice> Of course there is always an App, how dumb of me!
09:30:28 <ynpvisitor78> it depends on the phone but on mine if I hold the icon instead of tapping it it goes into a mode where I can move it to the home screen
09:30:56 <Kitt> to the right of your screen the 2nd box down shows you gt and the one beside it shows predictions
09:31:38 <ynpvisitor...> I think app is only Android also
09:31:46 <Kitt> that is what Thomas told me to do and the icon didn't give me the option phone just jumped back to home page
09:31:57 <Kitt> mine is android
09:31:58 <Dave from B> Morning Kitt, Eric, Kevin, Jimbo, Kent, Rice, numbers
09:32:11 <Kitt> morning Dave
09:32:13 <Eric> FYI, you can also drag those boxes around on the right here buy clicking and dragging the three little lines in the black bar :-)
09:32:19 <Rice> Not finding anything in Apple App store
09:32:33 <Eric> Anroid App Rice
09:32:37 <Eric> Android
09:34:24 <Kitt> I have gallery, verizon, kiosk, voice mail, camera, charter residential, google
09:34:45 <Kitt> sorry, meant to send that to Will
09:35:34 <Kitt> I have icon for gallery, verizon, kiosk, voice mail, camera, charter residential, google
09:35:36 <ynpvisitor...> Indy trying to make amends today. Nice and long.
09:35:50 <ynpvisitor61> yes very nice
09:36:00 <Kitt> Beehive
09:36:03 <Eric> :bee:
09:36:05 <Kitt> yay
09:36:13 <Kitt> :bee::bee::bee::bee::bee:
09:36:22 <ynpvisitor...> Standing by.....
09:36:34 <ynpvisitor...> Now
09:37:54 <Jimbo Berkelium> Really good lighting
09:38:14 <ynpvisitor61> If there were people on the bw they would have a rainbow:)
09:38:52 <Kitt> I believe they are working on an Apple app for gt
09:39:07 <Kevin L™> Great to see it in decent weather
09:39:31 <Eric> Amazed that the BW is almost empty of snow out there.
09:41:13 <Kitt> we have been alternating, snow and nice weather
09:41:46 <Kevin L™> Sounds like a Nascar race.
09:43:25 <Kitt> Daisy
09:43:42 <Dave from B> It is BEAUTIFUL here. 74 today but temp to drop tomorrow
09:43:48 <Kitt> saw the steamcloud
09:44:19 <Eric> wow...that is quite the change from snowpacolypse you were just having last week!
09:45:35 <Dave from B> Yep...everyone is happy happy happy
09:45:49 <Eric> Going to be a good morning...grand within the next 45 minutes
09:46:19 <Kitt> Then the park will open and people will show up in their shorts and t-shirts and wonder why there is snow on the ground
09:46:33 <Eric> for sure 18 :-D
09:47:15 <Eric> Any bear closures for Friday yet?
09:48:25 <Dave from B> Lots of BMA that time of year. Firhole Lake road is usually closed until Mem Day, isn't it?
09:52:48 <ynpvisitor...> Speaking of which, I see Ranger Rebecca caught Fountain last night which was great.
09:53:06 <ynpvisitor48> Interesting icon on Android GT app with update
09:54:05 <Betty> morning all
09:54:22 <Kitt> finally got icon moved to home page
09:55:30 <Kitt> Old Faithful
09:55:57 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty
09:56:58 <Kitt> now I am me
09:57:27 <Eric> Hi Betty
09:57:30 <Kevin L™> :)
09:57:43 <Betty> hi Kevin and Eric
09:57:50 <Betty> hi Kitt
09:58:09 <Kitt> hello
09:58:21 <Kitt> did you miss bee?
09:58:46 <Kitt> or were you watching it elsewhere?
09:59:00 <Betty> I missed Bee
09:59:11 <Kitt> ah, that's not fair
09:59:16 <Kevin L™> Boooo
09:59:32 <Betty> :-( snif
10:00:29 <Kitt> although I have convinced myself that I can go to youtube and watch a bunch of previous eruptions without the wait
10:01:07 <Kevin L™> Something about getting them live makes it better though.
10:01:37 <Eric> Boardwalk making progress?
10:02:03 <Kitt> I consider getting them live, when I am on the boardwalk
10:02:37 <Kitt> Kevin, do you know what they are doing with the boardwalk?
10:03:33 <Kevin L™> Replacing BW from the Inn to where we see it torn out now.
10:03:56 <Kitt> are they putting the new, less slick surface?
10:04:33 <Kitt> the stuff they used at Fountain Paint Pot area is nice
10:05:30 <Kevin L™> They have come a long way with the new stuff they use for the bw.
10:06:19 <Kevin L™> They even use it for the benches in the open car on the train at the Railroad Museum.
10:06:59 <Kitt> the textured stuff? I wouldn't think that would be nice to sit on
10:07:32 <Kitt> well need to get busy
10:07:35 <Kitt> have a good day
10:09:46 <Kevin L™> It has a texture but isn't totally rough.
10:09:54 <Kevin L™> Take care Kitt.
10:13:25 <Kevin L™> Aurum
10:13:27 <Kevin L™> .
10:13:27 <Kevin L™> .
10:13:28 <Kevin L™> .
10:13:34 <Eric> good catch
10:13:58 <Jimbo Berkelium> cool
10:14:37 <Betty> BIG BAH
10:14:49 <Eric> grand
10:14:50 <Eric> .
10:14:51 <Eric> .
10:14:51 <Eric> .
10:15:00 <Betty> no bah here
10:15:21 <Kevin L™> Grand
10:15:41 <Eric> Dang, BH, Faisy, Aurum, OF and Grand within an hour timeframe...awesome!
10:16:05 <Dave from B> Send Kevin some NoDoz
10:16:21 <ynpvisitor78> where is Dang?
10:16:23 <Eric> Yep, it could be a snoozer morning now
10:16:25 <Kevin L™> Wind is playing havoc with the cam presets
10:16:52 <Kevin L™> There is half a Nascar race in 45m
10:17:15 <Dave from B> 78, Dang is just to the left of BH
10:17:41 <Kevin L™> Seems to go off pretty often too Dave.
10:19:31 <Eric> I think a bear is scratching the cam tree!
10:20:09 <Betty> Kevin can check that after Grand
10:20:26 <Dave from B> I think Kevin's had too much Apple Cider
10:20:28 <Eric> 6mm
10:20:49 <Eric> weird pause there
10:22:57 <Dave from B> next pause will last 6 hours
10:23:13 <Eric> pause
10:23:23 <Jimbo Berkelium> approaching 8 minutes, we might miss a 2nd during a wind gust
10:23:50 <Eric> boomish
10:23:56 <Betty> poof
10:23:59 <Kevin L™> :)
10:24:19 <Eric> wind really kill those beautiful tall 2nds
10:24:46 <ynpvisitor48> nice
10:25:03 <Jimbo Berkelium> Still, a 2nd is a 2nd
10:25:12 <Kevin L™> Yes
10:25:23 <Eric> For sure...they are all nice, I just love the rockets!
10:25:27 <Dave from B> How about 3?
10:25:45 <Eric> could happen...all is quiet
10:25:48 <Eric> 3rd
10:25:54 <Betty> woooo
10:26:04 <Kevin L™> :)
10:26:11 <Dave from B> :)
10:26:13 <Kevin L™> Glad you got this one Betty
10:26:23 <Betty> me too :-)
10:26:25 <Eric> Nice...haven't seen a 3 burst in a while
10:26:26 <Dave from B> Why stop there?
10:26:33 <ynpvisitor48> really nice
10:26:48 <Betty> I like the wayy you think Dave
10:26:56 <Jimbo Berkelium> That had some pop
10:27:08 <Jimbo Berkelium> It's funny, with my lag there's no suspense
10:27:28 <Eric> You need delayed chat to match Jimbo :-D
10:27:38 <Jimbo Berkelium> I just wait for what the chat says is going to happen
10:27:43 <Jimbo Berkelium> Yes, I do
10:27:46 <Betty> are that bursts??
10:28:04 <Dave from B> Isn't that na option...Eric's done everything else around here?:D
10:28:06 <Eric> looked like just steam to me
10:28:18 <Betty> I saw spikes
10:28:19 <Kevin L™> I did see water
10:28:20 <ynpvisitor79> Looks like 3rd burst is a long one!
10:28:25 <Eric> Easy fix...don't watch chat during Grand :-D
10:28:26 <Jimbo Berkelium> I'm still seeing 'em
10:28:45 <Dave from B> Real tempted to type Moose right now, Jimbo!
10:29:07 <Jimbo Berkelium> or Giantess
10:29:26 <Eric> wowowowow
10:29:29 <Kevin L™> Whoa
10:29:32 <Betty> what´s that
10:29:33 <Jimbo Berkelium> it was easy for me to get ready for the wolves
10:29:39 <Eric> late super burst?
10:29:51 <Betty> funfunfun
10:29:53 <JSJ> Whoa - my first 3rd & my first 4th.
10:29:55 <Dave from B> #4
10:29:58 <Eric> I am pretty sure there was water in that!
10:30:02 <Kevin L™> Hope Ranger Rebecca was out there.
10:30:18 <Betty> how cool is that :-D
10:30:25 <Jimbo Berkelium> my first 4-peat, too
10:30:28 <JSJ> What's the record?
10:30:31 <Eric> That was at the 15 minute mark!
10:30:35 <Betty> same here
10:30:35 <Kevin L™> What a way to start the week.
10:30:42 <Kevin L™> I have seen a 5.
10:30:44 <Jimbo Berkelium> it's six or seven, it's on YouTube
10:31:05 <JSJ> That sounds right.
10:31:22 <Jimbo Berkelium> They zoomed out to watch Daisy or Castle and Grand went off again
10:31:23 <Dave from B> Isn't record in the 40's?
10:31:26 <Kevin L™> Be interesting to see what the next interval is
10:31:32 <Dave from B> as in 40+ bursts?
10:32:01 <Dave from B> I thought Grand eruptive pattern was very different long long ago
10:32:19 <Kevin L™> It did erupt a bit different long ago similar to Giantess.
10:32:20 <ynpvisitor78> I think the "modern day" Grand burst record is 10 to 12ish
10:32:34 <JSJ> Trying a 5th?
10:32:38 <Jimbo Berkelium> Grand was like this when I was there in the early 90s
10:32:40 <ynpvisitor78> the multi burst video on youtube is fun
10:33:28 <Jimbo Berkelium> I *think* the pool must just be steaming now
10:33:50 <Betty> go Sawmill
10:35:11 <Betty> good it was not blocked by OF window
10:35:56 <Betty> I like your comment, Kevin ;-)
10:37:35 <Kevin L™> What a morning. Glad Aurum went when it did!
10:38:00 <Dave from B> So, are we clearing the rest of the day for something really big?
10:38:09 <Dave from B> I'm thinking Giant
10:38:12 <Kevin L™> Go Giantess!
10:38:29 <Kevin L™> Do you have a dental appointment Dave?
10:38:39 <Dave from B> Not until Wed
10:38:44 <Dave from B> 1500
10:38:45 <Eric> or Chickens to feed Kevin?
10:38:55 <Betty> you need to check the bear
10:47:22 <Jimbo Berkelium> Hey, I just figure out why all this activity happened this morning! I had a dentist appointment!
10:47:39 <Jimbo Berkelium> (But I was here in time to watch)
10:48:03 <Kevin L™> Great luck.
10:48:32 <Kevin L™> Hope you did better than my last dentist appointment. Cost me $2000
10:48:54 <Eric> Evidence points to 9/10 dentists recommending geyser watching for healthier teeth!
10:48:58 <ynpvisitor...> Just a cleaning:)
10:49:56 <Kevin L™> I am at the stage that all my parts seem to be wearing out.
10:50:31 <Eric> dome?
10:50:39 <Dave from B> Kevin, mine are definitely starting to squeak
10:51:00 <Kevin L™> After 50 they wear out fast.
10:52:14 <Dave from B> Yep..I'm trying to figure out how to exercise without ending up on the disabled list all the time
10:52:29 <Dave from B> Can't lose weight if I can't exercise
10:52:46 <Eric> swimming is great exercise and easy on the joints
10:52:48 <Betty> I can relate Dave
10:52:59 <Eric> But, it takes extra time and planning.
10:53:00 <Kevin L™> It is called "Horseshoes" Dave.
10:54:27 <Dave from B> Can't swim
10:54:59 <Betty> you can do aquajogging with a belt
10:55:49 <Betty> https://www.google.de/search?client=firefox-b&dcr=0&ei=etXUWsrKG8Oy0gWz8p3wCw&q=aqua+jogging+g%C3%BCrtel&oq=aquajogging+g%C3%BCr&gs_l=psy-ab.1.0.0i10k1l2j0i22i30k1l8.3728.6434.0.9326.4.4.0.0.0.0.102.382.2j2.4.0....0...1c.1.64.psy-ab..0.4.374...0j0i67k1.0.j-WGzAlwWig
10:55:49 <Kevin L™> Right Dave. Jog in the pool with a can of beer!
10:56:13 <Betty> not the Vegas version Kevin ^^
10:57:52 <Dave from B> yes, Vegas rivers aren't good for the diet
10:58:20 <Dave from B> I'm thinking of switching from jogging and elliptical to a road bike
11:02:44 <Dave from B> I need to do less curls as well
11:03:45 <Kevin L™> Doing Schnitzel sandwiches tonight Betty.
11:04:25 <Betty> yummy. Missed Aurum by doing Fleischkäse
11:05:20 <Kevin L™> Bummer on Aurum, but glad you got the Grand!
11:05:42 <Kevin L™> What kind of meat do you use in that Betty?
11:06:06 <Betty> I buy it. it is pork
11:06:32 <Kevin L™> That doesn't sound bad at all.
11:06:56 <Betty> famous in Bavaria
11:07:05 <Betty> https://www.google.de/search?q=fleischk%C3%A4se&client=firefox-b&dcr=0&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjwjb7Eo7_aAhVrIJoKHSq2D18Q_AUICigB&biw=1600&bih=740
11:07:57 <Betty> you can get it with onions, or peppers or pizza
11:09:12 <Kevin L™> It would be good with BBQ sauce too.
11:09:51 <Betty> hahaha, I had it with that. How did you know? :-)
11:12:03 <Kevin L™> :) My kids put BBQ sauce on schnitzel.
11:14:11 <Betty> seems they do not work on the bw
11:15:12 <Kevin L™> I think they are probably driving in.
11:15:28 <Eric> germans have many spam varieties :-D
11:16:06 <Eric> I have not had the home made kind, but some of the stuff in tubes scares me!
11:17:27 <Kevin L™> Anything home made is better.
11:18:13 <Kevin L™> Hard to beat hot biscuits right out of the oven. They lose a lot in even 10m.
11:18:25 <Eric> Yes, kind of like the difference between cheap hot dog contents and good sausages
11:19:19 <Eric> I just haven't had the right Fleischkäse yet!
11:19:36 <Kevin L™> Yes. Costco dogs are not nearly as good as when they used Hebrew National.
11:19:51 <Eric> They don't use them still?
11:20:16 <Kevin L™> Nope. They have a Kirtland Signature dog.
11:21:10 <Kevin L™> I know when Martinsville speedway changed the dog there was Hell to pay. Went back to the old ones before the weekend ended.
11:21:31 <Dave from B> Kevin, did race restart yet?
11:22:52 <Kevin L™> No, but the rain did.
11:23:16 <Kevin L™> They are getting into the cars now.
11:29:05 <Dave from B> Kyle last 5-10 laps were pretty impressive.
11:29:19 <ynpvisitor10> 4 burst Grand, how fun. Hopefully a sign of things to come.
11:29:47 <Eric> For sure 10...it was pretty awesome at 15 minutes long!
11:30:00 <ynpvisitor10> really, 15 minutes?
11:30:11 <Eric> Yes, the last burst happened at 15
11:30:27 <ynpvisitor10> that is wild
11:30:35 <Kevin L™> I was afraid to move the cam away!
11:30:40 <Eric> almost seemed like a super burst, post grand if that is possible?
11:30:47 <ynpvisitor10> I saw a 6 burst one once yet I do not think it lasted 15 minutes
11:31:01 <ynpvisitor10> it does have afterbursts
11:31:30 <Eric> Yes, so this could have been a 3 burst grand with afterburst, but hard to tell with nobody actually there.
11:31:35 <ynpvisitor10> are you saying there was a long pause between 3 and 4?
11:31:41 <Eric> very long
11:31:46 <ynpvisitor10> got it, thanks
11:31:55 <Eric> You can look at chat logs for timing
11:31:57 <ynpvisitor69> OF
11:32:01 <ynpvisitor10> too bad Andrew was not there today
11:32:35 <Dave from B> and burst 3 was longer than #2
11:32:43 <Kevin L™> I hope someone was
11:33:02 <ynpvisitor10> warmer temps, more bursts, must be time for the park to open
11:33:06 <Kevin L™> And 4 was taller than 3
11:33:30 <ynpvisitor10> are the workers working today?
11:33:35 <Kevin L™> Cars are rolling
11:34:18 <Kevin L™> Not as of 10m ago
11:35:00 <Dave from B> Last Monday, I believe they started in the afternoon
11:39:32 <Eric> Are Xanterra employees starting to get in and prep?
11:39:36 <Kevin L™> These guys should have been at Grand.
11:41:05 <Dave from B> Eric, I would sure think so
11:42:05 <Eric> Cool...so maybe we will start seeing more in basin reports from employees :-D
11:42:11 <Kevin L™> Sent you an email Dave.
11:45:24 <Dave from B> Less than 100 hours before opening
11:45:51 <Eric> I don't think they will be done with that BW before opening
11:46:50 <Eric> They aren't even done tearing out the old one, are they?
11:47:26 <Eric> SpaceX falcon 9 launch at 2pm PST today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aY-0uBIYYKk
11:48:28 <Dave from B> Eric, it sure looks like a 3 week plus job at this point
11:49:22 <Eric> Yes, it might be done by the time I make it to the basin.
11:49:34 <Dave from B> Thanks for the link, Eric...wow! 30 second launch window
11:51:45 <Eric> haha...I said the EXACT same thing Dave!
11:54:21 <Betty> I think Daisy went at 0434 in the morning, not at 0520. Maybe Joe can recheck his entry? 1h53 min for the next interval seems pretty short
11:54:40 <Dave from B> So, if someone at SpaceX is off on his calculations by 31 seconds, is he fired?
11:55:02 <Kevin L™> NASA hires him
11:56:27 <Eric> I think in space calculations, 31 seconds is an eternity!
11:57:38 <Dave from B> I think my favorite part is watching the rockets land instead of take off
11:57:54 <Eric> when going hundreds of miles per hour, you can be in the wrong place in a few seconds!
11:58:27 <Eric> Yes, apparently they are going to try and save another part of the launch vehicle with big balloons
11:59:04 <Eric> Giant party balloon: https://www.space.com/40313-spacex-rocket-landing-giant-party-balloon.html
11:59:28 <Dave from B> Eric, when live broadcast starts, will you ding me please?
11:59:49 <Eric> It's in that link as a countdown
12:00:18 <Eric> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aY-0uBIYYKk
12:00:55 <Eric> I will try to txt you if I remember :-P
12:02:43 <Dave from B> The link is enough. Thanks, Eric
12:05:15 <Betty> I flagged Joes entry
12:19:35 <Kevin L™> I think Kyle will need a new set of Pampers® on this pit stop.
12:20:33 <Eric> It's very strange seeing that pole out on Washburn this morning
12:21:55 <Dave from B> What happened Kevin? Almost spin out?
12:22:38 <Kevin L™> Larsen spun in front of him and he missed him by about a foot.
12:23:35 <Dave from B> Who's this jimmie johnson in 2nd?
12:23:35 <Eric> That pole was not there at sunset, but appears at sunrise around 6am: http://geysercam.xyz/pole.jpg
12:23:49 <Betty> Daisy
12:24:14 <Eric> and the pole has moved to the left quite a bit
12:24:29 <Betty> Dome
12:25:40 <Kevin L™> As long as he stays ahead of the 2!
12:26:23 <Dave from B> Yeah, Kyle should have bumped #2 when he was behind hime earlier
12:26:51 <Kevin L™> #2 looks great when he hits the wall.
12:29:47 <Dave from B> Just saw a FB post from YNP....snow is really deep on the way to Sylvan Pass. At height of snowplow!
12:30:23 <Kevin L™> Doesn't surprise me
12:36:24 <ynpvisitor603> https://www.facebook.com/YellowstoneNPS/photos/a.480329805315712.126301.151418891540140/2095477263800950/?type=3&theater
12:37:47 <Dave from B> Thanks for sharing, Art. That's the pic I saw.
12:38:23 <Kevin L™> My cooler just came on.
12:38:49 <Dave from B> And, glad to hear road construction has started between Norris & Mammoth. I had a friend who is working in the park go through their a week ago and that section was AWFUL
12:38:59 <Dave from B> there*
12:42:15 <Kevin L™> Wow. #43 STP car leading. Brings back memories!
12:43:39 <Dave from B> not leading any longer
12:43:55 <Kevin L™> It wal fun!
12:43:57 <Kevin L™> was
12:44:18 <Kevin L™> I really like Bubba
12:58:45 <Betty> OF
13:16:49 <Dave from B> Where did Suarez come from, Kevin?
13:17:11 <Dave from B> nevermind, must be pit time
13:17:20 <Betty> Uruguay
13:17:33 <Dave from B> hahahaha wrong Suarez
13:17:40 <Betty> lol
13:18:03 <Betty> wondered why you ask Kevin ;-)
13:18:14 <Dave from B> It's been a long time since he's bit someone
13:18:30 <Betty> yeah
13:18:54 <Kevin L™> Mexico
13:19:15 <Kevin L™> Told you the #2 looked good into the wall.
13:19:39 <Dave from B> Yippee for #2
13:22:18 <Kevin L™> It's the Kyle & Kyle show.
13:25:21 <Kevin L™> :):):)
13:25:25 <Dave from B> woohoo
13:25:28 <Dave from B> 2 in a row
13:25:33 <Kevin L™> Right Kyle won
13:27:14 <Kevin L™> Did that email come in Dave? It was a big one so I am not sure it will go through.
13:28:57 <Kevin L™> Those guys are a bit late
13:29:14 <Dave from B> Just logged out to personal email. I'll know shortly
13:29:19 <Dave from B> on*
13:33:53 <Dave from B> That's a mighty donut
13:34:26 <Kevin L™> Did you have the sound on?
13:35:29 <Dave from B> Yees, I did
13:35:40 <Kevin L™> Love the train horn
13:36:05 <Dave from B> Looked like a fun time
13:36:42 <Kevin L™> When those things take off it is like the eclipse. It suddenly gets dark!
13:47:43 <Kevin L™> With the shadows of the trees in the static cam it looks like they are in a hole .
13:55:59 <Betty> searching for the bear?
13:56:29 <Kevin L™> Hope there aren't any where I was looking!
14:00:56 <Dave from B> ok..you peaked my interest. Has there been a bear sighting in OF recently or are we just hoping?
14:01:31 <Kevin L™> None I know of
14:04:04 <ynpvisitor...> Castle
14:06:23 <Dave from B> Kevin, what kind of interval are you thinking for Grand?
14:06:43 <Kevin L™> I bet it goes longer. 7h plus
14:17:41 <Dave from B> That's what I'm thinking. I hope to be here when it goes again
14:18:11 <Dave from B> Still 2 hours before Space X activity
14:18:35 <Kevin L™> You sure?
14:19:27 <Dave from B> launches at 632EDT
14:20:09 <Kevin L™> How is the weather?
14:21:42 <Dave from B> Haven't checked
14:22:29 <Kevin L™> It started to snow in TN just after the race
14:30:19 <Dave from B> Richmond VA next week
14:30:55 <Kevin L™> ood track
14:33:00 <Kevin L™> Good
14:34:10 <Dave from B> So, Kyle has 2 1sts, 2 2nds and 2 3rds in last 6?
14:34:50 <Kevin L™> He likes the firsts better
14:37:51 <Dave from B> No donuts for second
14:40:33 <Dave from B> I'm actually going to have to open my window....:):):)
14:50:09 <Kevin L™> Burritos at lunch?
14:53:33 <Betty> Daisy
14:53:36 <Kevin L™> Faisy
14:54:03 <Dave from B> 76F!!!!
14:54:30 <Dave from B> A chance of our first thunderstorm of the year tonight
14:54:36 <Dave from B> for*
14:54:47 <Kevin L™> That should take care of you snow piles.
14:56:23 <Dave from B> no snow here...actually have green grass now
14:56:32 <Jimbo Berkelium> I'm in the Baltimore area we had some flash floods last night and this morning
14:56:46 <Jimbo Berkelium> 2-3 inches of rain overnight
14:56:57 <Dave from B> 76 is too warm...we do need a slower run off....50's return tomorrow
14:57:10 <Dave from B> Jimbo, you a Ravens fan?
15:00:38 <Dave from B> Seems to me I 've asked you already and the answer is no
15:01:14 <ynpvisitor50> :lion:
15:01:22 <Dave from B> Nice
15:01:55 <Dave from B> Spacex countdown to 2 days...must be a weather postponement
15:05:03 <Dave from B> I hear killdeer
15:05:40 <Betty> I like those
15:05:52 <Betty> funny birds
15:06:04 <Jimbo Berkelium> Hey Dave B, not really; Orioles somewhat, but my sympathies, unfortunately, are more aligned with DC sports teams, for some reason, which means I deserve pity
15:06:32 <Kevin L™> Hope you aren't a Caps fan.
15:06:38 <Jimbo Berkelium> Though I don't care much about the Redskins
15:06:47 <Jimbo Berkelium> Kevin L, sadly yes.
15:07:12 <Jimbo Berkelium> I have much sympathy for Cubs and Red Sox fans during the 20th century, because of that
15:07:26 <Kevin L™> I felt bad for them yesterday.
15:08:27 <Kevin L™> We beat the LA gang at home yesterday. They came out just slamming people. Refs didn't see a thing.
15:08:29 <Jimbo Berkelium> I was at Game 1 with my son, and he was also at Game 2. He said (echoing other comments) -- "How do they keep coming up with better ways to break our hearts?"
15:08:34 <Dave from B> Yep...hearbreak this week for Caps fans.
15:09:06 <Kevin L™> Losing the first two is hard, but at home it is horrible
15:09:11 <Jimbo Berkelium> A Washington Post writer called their playoff woes "mythic improbability". I think that should be on a T-shirt.
15:10:11 <Dave from B> Both in OT as well
15:10:23 <Jimbo Berkelium> One gallows humor fan said that they may have discovered the foolproof way to insure that they don't lose to the Penguins in the second round.
15:10:34 <Kevin L™> :)
15:11:14 <Jimbo Berkelium> Not only that, Dave, but on a PP near the end of regulation Carlson hit the post, and Wilson whiffed on an open net abuot a minute before CBJ won it.
15:11:21 <Dave from B> Hockey is my favorite sport to watch in person
15:11:37 <Jimbo Berkelium> High level soccer is good too
15:12:09 <Dave from B> Yep...that is #2 for me
15:12:27 <Kevin L™> I think it was the 3rd period in the Knights game that a king knocked one of players down and jumped on him. The guy looked for the puck and the knight cold cocked him. He was laying on the ice wondering what happened. Refs didn't see that either. :)
15:13:34 <Jimbo Berkelium> Do you remember when Crosby banged Subban's head on the ice like five times, and got two minutes for roughing???
15:16:28 <Betty> time for sleep. hope you get another multiburst Grand :-)
15:16:42 <Dave from B> 59 days until World Cup:)
15:16:43 <Kevin L™> I think so.
15:16:53 <Dave from B> Nite Betty
15:17:18 <Kevin L™> Night Betty
15:18:42 <Jimbo Berkelium> Sid not exactly being the top candidate for the Lady Byng: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XO49H1H0H3A
15:19:52 <Jimbo Berkelium> I sympathize with the refs because it's a very fast and physical game, but... in one of my son's games (he's a goalie), they called a goal on a shot that hit the post. No way they could have seen it. And I recorded it and showed it to them after the game.
15:20:08 <Jimbo Berkelium> Fortunately despite that they made the playoffs and got as far as expected.
15:27:06 <Kevin L™> Refs in hockey have to be fast on their feet.
15:27:57 <Jimbo Berkelium> One of the bigger players on my son's travel team went for a check and missed the player -- hit the ref instead. Fortunately the ref got up
15:28:28 <Kevin L™> I saw a ref got destroyed in the Caps game yesterday
15:28:42 <Jimbo Berkelium> I missed that, but it happens
15:29:53 <Kevin L™> Don't know if he got hit, but destroyed his knee. They put a brace on but he had to be carried off.
15:35:29 <Kevin L™> It looks like he just clipped skated with a player. He dislocated his left kneecap and tore his quadriceps. Ouch!!!!!!
15:50:33 <Jimbo Berkelium> They can send him to Toronto to judge goalie interference calls :-}
15:50:42 <Dave from B> This time next week, We'll be getting Turban posts:)
15:51:19 <Kevin L™> Wish we had them today
15:53:42 <Eric> I will go with the longshot Grand 1632 +- 5m
16:02:35 <ynpvisitor50> OF

16:14:30 <Graham> i see the tops of the benches are blooming
16:14:33 <Kevin L™> Yes
16:21:41 <Graham> Aurumand 4b Grand, its your lucky day Dave
16:24:42 <Graham> dome
16:31:00 <Eric> Who knows what Grand is going to do after that crazy multi-burst/after blast eruption this morning....
16:31:19 <Eric> Wish someone would have been down there :-(
16:31:24 <Kevin L™> I am looking forward to see what the interval is.
16:33:55 <Dave from B> Good evening Graham
16:34:24 <Dave from B> Turban must be going now
16:34:38 <Eric> It did look like puffs of something back there.
16:51:52 <Graham> grand
16:51:53 <Graham> .
16:51:53 <Graham> .
16:51:54 <Graham> .
16:51:55 <Dave from B> Grand ie
16:53:13 <Dave from B> I just came back to my computer. How much did we miss?
16:53:54 <Graham> 2m
16:54:04 <Graham> and part of the first burst
16:54:07 <Graham> so 3 or more to go
16:54:31 <Dave from B> haha
17:02:12 <Eric> Locomotive Grand now.....just keeps chugging away
17:02:45 <Graham> paused
17:02:54 <Graham> at 11m
17:03:02 <Eric> hopefully a pause :-D
17:03:51 <Eric> Guess the long 6 hour kind
17:03:51 <Graham> dome
17:04:33 <Eric> Bummer :-(
17:05:37 <Dave from B> Time for me to help out in the market. Have a great evening Graham and Eric
17:05:48 <Eric> Night Dave
17:05:55 <Graham> have fun
17:06:34 <Dave from B> Trying hard to stay awake. Been here almost 11 hours already
17:07:04 <Eric> Good Luck!
17:07:11 <Eric> don't drive sleepy
17:25:10 <Kevin L™> Well you got a Lion ini
17:25:37 <Graham> the 3rd one
17:25:42 <Kevin L™> Depression also looks hot.
17:25:52 <Graham> but nice series
17:37:29 <Graham> big burp out of BH
17:38:26 <Graham> dome
17:39:11 <Eric> OF
17:39:24 <Eric> oblong?
17:39:57 <Graham> or the 5th burst
18:02:52 <Graham> did we miss Daisy during Lion?
18:12:08 <Graham> dome
18:19:24 <Graham> dome for real now
18:27:27 <Graham> dep
18:30:55 <Kevin L™> Are you talking about the geyser or your feelings as a Caps fan?
18:31:15 <Graham> rhey will come back ... as will the geyser
18:32:35 <Kevin L™> The Knights game was a real slugfest last night. I think the players didn't understand when the kings coach told them to go out and beat the Knights.
18:33:09 <Graham> haha... you ready for round 2?
18:42:03 <Kevin L™> I hope so. I could not believe what the ref were not calling. Kings players know the Knights players down, jumped on them and were slugging them. Finally one of the Knights cold cocked a king and he was out for the count for about 30 seconds on the ice. After that one they weren't as bad.
18:54:11 <Graham> dome
19:04:28 <ynpvisitor6033> People on GH
19:38:35 <Graham> dome
20:00:36 <Graham> daisy
