05:40:14 <ynpvisitor68> Steamboat 4/27 eruption - has it been determined to have had lengthy water phase?
05:43:59 <ynpvisitor4> Grand is at 8h 36m may be very long
06:02:58 <ynpvisitor58> re steamboat, i think the fact that rocco saw water 2h after the eruption on 4/27 would make it agree with it having water later. not sure anyone knows what happens near the start - does it go into steam and then revert to water? will need a better observation to know
06:12:23 <ynpvisitor4> Grand 8h 46 min longest in quite some time.
07:07:00 <kcmule> OF ie. 3.2 mag eq near west

07:37:37 <Betty> crazy video
07:38:42 <kcmule> mornin Betty. there's a longer clip on his timeline of basically the same thing, and he scolds the watchers for telling him to be careful
07:41:13 <ynpvisitor88> maybe he's farther away than it looks?
07:42:11 <kcmule> in the 2nd video you can see splattered bombs behind him and on the roof he's standing on
07:42:18 <Betty> Daisy
07:42:29 <kcmule> el nutso
07:43:05 <ynpvisitor88> oh
07:50:31 <ynpvisitor88> death by lava blob sounds rough
07:54:55 <Betty> LC
08:01:11 <ynpvisitor14> I guess he doesn't have to mow his backyard anymore.
08:01:36 <Betty> :-)

08:42:58 <Polly> Hi All!
08:42:59 <Kitt> morning Polly
08:43:07 <Betty> hi Polly
08:43:45 <Eric Kitchen> Hello Polly
08:43:48 <Polly> Hi Russell
08:44:02 <Russell> Hi Polly.
08:44:22 <Russell> If you're at Norris next weekend, I'll probably see you there.
08:44:43 <Michael> Time for Old Lionhive
08:45:05 <Polly> My brother Bob made it up for part of Steamboat yesterday. Think he's probably feeling pretty good!!
08:45:38 <Polly> Hope to see you Russell. I'm heading up Wednesday. Have 2 nights in West then at the cabins.
08:45:39 <Betty> morning Russell
08:45:47 <Betty> Lion
08:45:48 <Kitt> Is that what you mean by Lionhive
08:45:52 <Kitt> Lion
08:45:54 <Russell> Good morning Betty.
08:46:08 <Kevin L™> Super choppy right now.
08:46:18 <Eric Kitchen> ohhh, 30 second delay :-(
08:46:29 <Michael> well, it's only Lionhive if they erupt together...
08:46:31 <Polly> Old LionHive
08:46:52 <Russell> Polly - it sounds like the boardwalk to Steamboat is finally open. We're going to camp in Madison.
08:46:54 <Kitt> I am afraid Fluffy wants to do a coverup
08:47:13 <Eric Kitchen> There we go...now I am live :-D
08:47:22 <Polly> Yes, the boardwalk is open.
08:47:31 <Polly> Russell, is your wife coming?
08:48:04 <Kitt> still sounds like Norris area has lots of snow
08:48:09 <ynpvisitor44> delay here. how do you go live?
08:48:12 <Russell> I'm about 90% sure she's coming.
08:48:30 <Kitt> morning Lc
08:48:33 <Eric Kitchen> enable flash for the page...some instructions under help on the left side of page
08:48:38 <Polly> Hi lc
08:48:45 <Eric Kitchen> woops..right side of page :-P
08:48:46 <Betty> hey lc
08:48:48 <lc> hey Kitt, everyone
08:48:52 <Eric Kitchen> Hi LC
08:50:01 <Kitt> Fluffy
08:50:07 <Kevin L™> Hope it is a short
08:50:09 <Michael> I susually hit Ctrl-F5 to fix lag. There's also a camera refresh in he "Settings" menu on the right side which sometimes works.
08:50:12 <Kitt> and there goes the view
08:50:14 <Eric Kitchen> bad wind direction :-(
08:50:52 <Kitt> wait bee, please wait
08:51:29 <Michael> A wind shift would be OK. I'm sure the folks on the boardwalk wouldn't mind.
08:51:48 <Betty> Eric, did you remove West entrance cam for Kilauea cam?
08:52:14 <Eric Kitchen> yes
08:52:16 <lc> Ctrl/F5 seem to do it.
08:52:21 <Eric Kitchen> wow...you can see flames there now!
08:52:32 <Eric Kitchen> or molten lava in the forest
08:53:13 <Eric Kitchen> I heard it had quieted down...apparently not!
08:54:33 <Eric Kitchen> BH
08:54:36 <Kitt> Beehive
08:54:39 <Kitt> boom
08:54:42 <Kevin L™> Right on cue
08:54:56 <Betty> yay
08:55:11 <Kevin L™> I would rather have the west cam and lose the heading into the park.
08:55:31 <Betty> me too
08:55:32 <Kevin L™> Bet that is a great rainbow.
08:55:37 <Eric Kitchen> Yes, I know...but there are technical reasons I chose that one
08:55:41 <lc> still about 30 sec delay.
08:55:45 <Betty> can you fix that Eric?
08:55:51 <Kitt> bee going after gazers
08:57:06 <Betty> still a strong indy
08:57:18 <Eric Kitchen> glad lots of people on BW
08:57:53 <Betty> LC
08:58:26 <Kevin L™> Nice eruption.
08:58:35 <ynpvisitor107> What technical reason?
08:58:36 <Kitt> well better go eat breakfast, since Bill worked so hard fixing it
08:58:41 <Kitt> have a good day
08:58:48 <Eric Kitchen> bye kitt

09:00:14 <Betty> bye Michael
09:00:30 <Polly> Bye everybody
09:00:42 <Betty> bye Polly
09:00:46 <Russell> Bye Polly. See you soon.
09:16:55 <Betty> hi Kent
09:17:06 <Kent> Eric, just my personal preference, but the West cam showing cars backed at the gate seems more useful than the one pointed into the park. It also has at least some sort of image after dark.
09:17:15 <Kent> Hi Betty.
09:17:21 <Betty> you missed BH by that much :-(
09:17:36 <Kent> Story of my life :)
09:17:59 <Betty> like Kevins story with Aurum
09:18:11 <Kent> Yes
09:18:23 <Betty> :-)
09:25:31 <Kent> I hope this week bring Bill's images of both Steamboat eruptions. It also looks like MA's research has nailed down the water question:thumbsup:
09:30:17 <ynpvisitor107> The still photos of the 4/27 eruption have been released. No photos of the latest one since it was dark.
09:31:35 <Kent> Where do I look?
09:32:03 <ynpvisitor107> Also, water phase yesterday was much different than anything MA described.
09:32:47 <ynpvisitor107> I’m not sure where I saw them. YNP page? It was on FB
09:33:12 <Kent> I'll go look
09:34:40 <ynpvisitor107> It’s on the YNP official page
09:37:24 <Kent> Did not answer any questions for me :(
09:40:35 <ynpvisitor107> Read the GT notes from yesterday. It explains how Rocco saw water 2 hours after the start.
09:53:55 <Betty> Lion
09:54:15 <Kevin L™> I wish they would post it somewhere but facebook so those of us who don't want to give our life story to facebook can see them.
09:55:15 <Betty> I share your opinion
10:09:57 <ynpvisitor117> I bet Bill K can provide a link to the photos the next time he comes into chat
10:11:48 <Art> You looking for the Steamboat time lapse video?
10:12:15 <ynpvisitor117> Kevin is, he wants one not on FB
10:12:18 <Kevin L™> Yes
10:12:52 <Art> https://www.facebook.com/YellowstoneNPS/videos/2116552048360138/
10:12:59 <Art> Don't need an account to view it
10:13:09 <Kevin L™> Thanks
10:14:20 <Kevin L™> That was fun
10:14:24 <Betty> OF
10:21:19 <ynpvisitor112> that high temperature on tantalus cerrk the last hour, does that indicate another steamboat
10:21:34 <ynpvisitor112> creek*
10:22:11 <Eric> nope...that is normal daytime temp
10:22:24 <ynpvisitor117> Eric did you read the notes from yesterday?
10:22:27 <Eric> watch the discharge and temp together
10:22:41 <ynpvisitor117> long water phase without the big steam phase folks expect
10:22:42 <ynpvisitor112> thanks
10:23:00 <Eric> I didn't yet....interesting
10:23:11 <ynpvisitor117> a couple of good notes there
10:23:23 <Eric> thanks 117
10:23:28 <Art> So amazing/interesting that this is happening
10:25:06 <ynpvisitor117> yw Eric, and I agree Art. It baffles me how folks could think it is related to Hawaii though
10:25:07 <Eric> Yes...awesome field reports from norris...can't wait for someone to catch a major from start to finish :-D
10:26:04 <ynpvisitor117> If someone is willing to camp there, it may happen
10:26:08 <Art> I'd like to be that person ;)
10:26:20 <ynpvisitor117> or with Bill working at the bookstore, he may get very close to start
10:26:31 <ynpvisitor117> close shop, and off he goes
10:26:52 <Art> I'm guessing the number of days wildlife watching this trip is going to be very low....
10:26:57 <Eric> faisy
10:27:07 <Kevin L™> Have a good day.
10:27:28 <Eric> I really wish someone could have been there on the 4/27.....the logger data is insane!
10:27:53 <Betty> same to you, Kevin
10:28:12 <Eric> You too kevin
10:29:17 <Art> As much as I am dying to see Giant this Steamboat active phase might be something that doesnt' happen again in a lifetime
10:30:07 <Art> Or based on previous events, at least 20-30 years, if that sort of interval has any cyclical nature to it
10:30:48 <Art> .
10:30:49 <Eric> aurum
10:30:51 <Art> .
10:30:54 <ynpvisitor51> .
10:30:55 <ynpvisitor51> .
10:30:55 <ynpvisitor51> .
10:31:03 <ynpvisitor51> and done
10:31:07 <Betty> nice
10:31:24 <Betty> good catch
10:31:27 <Art> Nice catch
10:32:00 <Betty> It heard Kevin left :-p
10:39:18 <Art> Interesting to hear that some of the trees around SB are showing signs of die off
11:08:55 <Craig> o/
11:53:20 <Betty> OF
12:53:01 <Betty> Grand takes its time
12:54:31 <ynpvisitor48> I think Grand could use a couple of Senna-S tablets. It has apparently been taking too many drugs
12:54:49 <ynpvisitor3> it did a 8h 46 min interval this morning
12:54:58 <Betty> bah
12:55:09 <ynpvisitor48> I saw that :(
12:55:39 <Michael> I think Turban wanted more of the spotlight to itself.
12:59:45 <Michael> Gradn + Daisy
12:59:58 <ynpvisitor48> :)
13:00:01 <Betty> nice
13:00:03 <Michael> I missed the start of both reading another page.
13:00:14 <Betty> me too
13:00:47 <ynpvisitor3> wind appears strong down there
13:04:30 <ynpvisitor3> maybe not hot 70° steam is different
13:11:39 <Betty> headed out, night all
13:27:35 <Craig> OF
13:27:47 <Craig> ie
14:45:17 <ynpvisitor67> Does anybody know if Steamboat Geyse is still erupting? Saw a major eruption yesterday
14:46:50 <ynpvisitor114> There has been no new report on Geyser Times
15:01:06 <ynpvisitor114> OF 1700 wc
15:20:51 <Craig> Is that indy?
15:21:42 <Craig> or just BH splashing?
15:23:15 <Craig> Could've just been scissors spring bubbling too
15:42:35 <kcmule> daisy ie
15:43:04 <ynpvisitor114> 1742 is good
15:43:21 <kcmule> k
16:34:42 <ynpvisitor114> OF 1833 wc
17:14:56 <ynpvisitor114> Way exciting!!!
17:20:06 <LETS GO CAPS> i wonder where Kevin is?
17:20:43 <ynpvisitor114> Just a guess but I would say family stuff
17:21:14 <LETS GO CAPS> or watching the Knights
17:21:37 <ynpvisitor114> Yes
17:23:38 <LETS GO CAPS> yeah Vixen is alive, minors and majors
17:26:07 <ynpvisitor114> I saw the noon one but not the earlier. We may get more data tomorrow.
17:27:18 <LETS GO CAPS> is MA there?
17:28:07 <ynpvisitor114> Not today that I know of
17:30:49 <LETS GO CAPS> dome
17:53:28 <ynpvisitor114> Dome coming online again
18:04:18 <Craig> OF
18:04:21 <ynpvisitor114> OF 2003
18:09:49 <LETS GO CAPS> dome
18:10:04 <LETS GO CAPS> is it really having 15m intervals?
18:10:10 <ynpvisitor114> Aurum
18:10:20 <Craig> Go aurum!
18:10:30 <LETS GO CAPS> a nice dual
18:16:11 <LETS GO CAPS> Kevin will be happy, Knights advance
18:16:18 <LETS GO CAPS> daisy
18:16:18 <ynpvisitor114> Daisy 2015
18:19:51 <Craig> Dome starting again
18:23:57 <ynpvisitor114> lightning
18:25:30 <ynpvisitor25> :) it was a good Knight!
18:25:40 <Craig> grotto?
18:26:04 <LETS GO CAPS> now the Caps need to do the same thing
18:28:16 <ynpvisitor25> Would be fun to have a Knights Caps Stanley Cup.
18:28:33 <LETS GO CAPS> Knights will lose tho
18:33:09 <ynpvisitor25> Knights have never lost a Stanley Cup finals game yet.
18:33:56 <ynpvisitor114> :)
18:39:10 <Craig> i can't tell if its a dome restart or its still from that eruption
18:47:40 <ynpvisitor114> Laters
19:07:08 <ynpvisitor23> Where are all the turban times, no one setting on Grand this beautiful evening?
19:09:53 <ynpvisitor23> Grand I think
19:10:35 <ynpvisitor23> Just got back from diferent page, so not sure if NS or not
19:12:42 <ynpvisitor23> Not very tall steam. But I saw a spick
19:14:13 <ynpvisitor23> spike
19:16:49 <ynpvisitor23> pause?
19:17:07 <ynpvisitor23> 2nd
19:17:15 <ynpvisitor23> Way big tall one
19:17:50 <ynpvisitor23> Must have started around 08
19:17:58 <Craig> boom
19:18:12 <ynpvisitor23> Boom what?
19:18:43 <ynpvisitor23> A 3rd?
19:19:46 <Craig> No the 2nd
19:20:15 <ynpvisitor23> Possible a third, I saw a pause after the tall second.
19:20:46 <ynpvisitor23> Looks like Giant it rebuilding.
19:21:10 <ynpvisitor23> Well off to watch the tellie.
19:21:17 <ynpvisitor23> or is it telle
