22:07:06 <ynpvisitor106> Micah, Norris campground is closed. The Beverlys heard it from their trailer in the government area.
22:17:09 <ynpvisitor38> I wonder what they are looking for?
02:34:39 <ynpvisitor999> Steamboat! And within my May 20 @1554 +-24h window too!
03:44:05 <ynpvisitor41> Check out the fog on the Washburn cam
03:52:28 <Betty> oh, bummer for Dave
03:52:50 <Betty> but glad for the others who got Steamboat :-)
03:53:10 <ynpvisitor42> I hope he checks before he travels
03:53:13 <ynpvisitor41> Sounds like no one was there for start
04:24:46 <LETS GO CAPS> wow shorter interval
04:24:59 <LETS GO CAPS> wish it would erupt when a gazer is actually there
04:25:00 <Betty> yeah
04:25:24 <LETS GO CAPS> agree, hope Dave checked GT before he left. Bruce also, they can slow down
04:32:12 <CraigC> no gazers stayed to see SB erupt?
04:32:30 <ynpvisitor999®> next Steamboat, provided the active phase continues, on May 27 @ 0948 ± 24h
04:33:49 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm going with the 7d12h interval again, in the hope my prediction is right
04:34:56 <LETS GO CAPS> weather wasnt good to stay out either
04:35:47 <LETS GO CAPS> its good having shorter intervals but it does stretch out the window so harder to watch for it. i hope the next interval isnt 9 days
04:36:44 <LETS GO CAPS> will be busy there next Sat ...... i arrive then and wil have to go to OF to checkin to my cabin in the afternoon
04:38:05 <LETS GO CAPS> HI volcano is still erupting out of the fissure
04:38:50 <CraigC> We pooped out at about 17:00, sorry to hear that the others that endured all the rain and hail weren't treated for their patience.
04:38:59 <LETS GO CAPS> looks like it will be a nice day for a Giant eruption
04:39:33 <CraigC> Giant sounds like a nice destination this morning
04:39:59 <LETS GO CAPS> yeah, sorry it didnt show for you. are you going to see the eruption today?
04:40:41 <CraigC> we're on a short timeline today, have to head back home, so we'll just head to UGB for a spell
04:40:53 <LETS GO CAPS> thanks for the notes, goot to hear what it was doing hours befre ...again
04:41:19 <LETS GO CAPS> ok, well Grand is up this morning
04:56:29 <LETS GO CAPS> inteesting how long the seismo shakes ... may need to keep track of that in case theres a relationship to the following interval
05:01:46 <LETS GO CAPS> good to see the power is back at OF
05:04:49 <LETS GO CAPS> i see the first wc time was 2215
05:30:57 <ynpvisitor57> Dave must be driving to see steam - I think he would check in here if they stayed home...
05:33:39 <ynpvisitor41> First lava injury reported yesterday
05:35:03 <ynpvisitor57> what happened? that sounds bad
05:35:13 <Art> Someone was sitting on there porch
05:35:31 <Art> When some "spatter" hit them in the shin, guess it weighs a lot
05:35:46 <ynpvisitor57> gees - amazing
05:46:55 <Betty> yay, Lion
05:50:30 <LETS GO CAPS> any confirmation that F&M erupted yesterday? I see its on GT
05:51:15 <LETS GO CAPS> hum, it shows up on the app but not web
05:51:16 <Art> Where do you see it?
05:51:24 <Art> Just checked but couldn't find anything
05:52:28 <Art> Maybe someone deleted it or flagged it?
05:52:43 <LETS GO CAPS> shold still have gone from the app too
05:52:52 <Art> I'll grab my Android brb
05:53:07 <LETS GO CAPS> i have the android pp
05:54:45 <ynpvisitor42> When Riverside showed up yesterday morning it looked like the wrong time so I posted fan and mortar then I believe Jim S posted Riverside at that time and I deleted fan and mortar
05:54:50 <Art> Checked Android and iOS GT app but don't see a F&M entry, guessing your device just held on to an entry deleted or flagged?
05:55:26 <LETS GO CAPS> ok, thanks. something is wrong
05:56:34 <Betty> I don´t see it too
06:02:25 <LETS GO CAPS> maybe it was just a special eruption for me
06:56:03 <ynpvisitor81> Quite the line at the west gate
06:56:22 <ynpvisitor81> More lanes will open at 9
06:57:18 <Betty> OF
06:58:27 <LETS GO CAPS> big backup for this eary
06:59:56 <ynpvisitor81> It’s going to be a busy summer
07:00:07 <LETS GO CAPS> maybe Dave decided to go and watch STeamboat anyway?
07:00:23 <ynpvisitor81> I sure hope not
07:00:34 <LETS GO CAPS> the activity is impressive
07:00:52 <LETS GO CAPS> especially if it has an extended water phase. he might not be off work for one again
07:04:16 <ynpvisitor57> I agree, I hope he went.
07:04:21 <ynpvisitor81> That line at West is long
07:10:20 <Dave from B> morning everyone
07:10:42 <Dave from B> Trip aborted
07:11:03 <Betty> bummer Dave
07:11:08 <Dave from B> Graduation next weekend, so I'm not sure when I'm going again
07:11:09 <ynpvisitor58> maybe next time Dave.
07:12:22 <Dave from B> At least people are seeing leadup to eruption so we are learning things every eruption. Now people just need to see it!
07:12:29 <ynpvisitor42> Riverside
07:13:02 <ynpvisitor58> did you find out before you got on the road?
07:13:32 <Dave from B> Yep, my new phone app told me about 45 minutes after the eruption
07:13:59 <ynpvisitor81> So glad you found out!
07:14:05 <Dave from B> What am I supposed to do with all these Cheezits and other snacks?
07:14:11 <ynpvisitor58> what app is that?
07:14:18 <Betty> :-)
07:14:21 <ynpvisitor81> Graduation party?
07:14:23 <Betty> eat it
07:14:41 <ynpvisitor42> I'll bring the beer
07:14:46 <Betty> or sell it in the market
07:14:48 <ynpvisitor58> they will keep until June
07:15:47 <Betty> no wind at Riverside
07:15:56 <Dave from B> New GT IPhone app
07:15:58 <ynpvisitor64> You should have signed up as Dave 86. Missed it by that much! Sort of like the Caps.
07:18:18 <Kevin L™> I hope Bruce did get all the way there for nothing.
07:18:39 <Betty> morning Kevin
07:22:39 <ynpvisitor81> When was Bruce arriving?
07:22:44 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty
07:23:02 <Kevin L™> I was thinking it was this morning.
07:23:43 <Jake> Read the log from yesterday. He was reported there
07:24:42 <ynpvisitor57> time for Grand
07:26:43 <ynpvisitor81> So he did not stick it out.
07:28:12 <ynpvisitor81> Good intentions meet the reality of being out there in a hail storm
07:29:10 <Dave from B> Time to walk the rats. Have a great day everyone!
07:30:58 <Kevin L™> That is great Jake! Long way to drive and miss it!
07:31:32 <Kevin L™> I guess any weather is OK if you are watching Steamboat.
07:32:04 <ynpvisitor81> Well folks yesterday did not think so
07:32:34 <ynpvisitor81> That and darkness
07:39:44 <Betty> Daissy
07:40:08 <Kevin L™> Sure it isn't Faissy?
07:40:19 <Betty> ssurre
07:40:32 <ynpvisitor57> right, Fevin
07:40:39 <Kevin L™> :)
08:31:07 <Betty> OF
08:31:08 <ynpvisitor55> nice
08:31:17 <Betty> yep
09:30:55 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP 1119
09:31:17 <ynpvisitor999®> I think most gazers are now over at the Giant platform
09:33:21 <Betty> nice Castle
09:52:05 <LETS GO CAPS> i am sure some are up watching Steamboat ectivitysince its still unusual for most of us
09:52:56 <Betty> I think you´re right
09:53:19 <Kevin L™> Giant doesn't look very exciting right now either but the last GHP looks more promising.
09:55:15 <LETS GO CAPS> hard to tell when/if Giant will get going again. river may be too high. i would be more excited if it had more frequent hot periods or longer ones
09:59:56 <LETS GO CAPS> 100' minors that CB desribed would be fun to watch for a while
10:01:08 <Eric> Morning
10:01:47 <Eric> Lava finally crossed the hwy from Kilauea and entered the ocean...some great footage from a boat on Facebook:
10:07:27 <LETS GO CAPS> amazing show
10:07:48 <LETS GO CAPS> at least that deflectsinterest away from YNP
10:09:18 <Betty> morning Eric
10:14:41 <LETS GO CAPS> this is the live view you posted before Eric, now looking at the sea steam
10:15:46 <Eric> Yep...I have been watching that a LOT over the last 48 hours :-) Physically difficult for me to look away from it.
10:16:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisu
10:16:33 <ynpvisitor999®> y
10:16:41 <LETS GO CAPS> yeh i know. was interesting to watch the splatter cones grow and shrink and the development shift as the fisure changed
10:17:38 <LETS GO CAPS> the ever lovely Daisy OF dul
10:17:51 <Eric> Did anyone correlate that 5/18 spike on the tantalus graphs to steamboat activity?
10:18:23 <ynpvisitor999®> possibly
10:18:44 <ynpvisitor999®> though it's more likely the flow got lost in preciptation flows
10:19:07 <Eric> weird spike, unless there was a sudden rainstorm
10:19:48 <ynpvisitor999®> the eruption spike on YVO graph didn't reach 35°C, by the way
10:21:25 <ynpvisitor999®> which I think suggests a short water phase
10:22:28 <Kevin L™> There was a hailstorm mentioned.
10:22:39 <LETS GO CAPS> no in prk Daisy post - odd if peeps are at Bijou
10:23:10 <Eric> The overall temps are declining on the monitoring gauge in general....even its cycle humps are lower. Check the monthly log.
10:24:05 <Eric> Too much geo activity in the US right now...I can't get anything done!
10:24:15 <Eric> I need to be packing :-P
10:24:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Echinus temps seem to be increasing, after lowering for a few weeks [i]*wishful thinking*[/i]
10:24:43 <LETS GO CAPS> lets go
11:20:32 <Micah> I
11:20:56 <Micah> I'm in awe of what's happening at Kilauea right now.
11:21:03 <Micah> Incredible activity.
11:21:29 <Betty> you need to see that in the dark
11:21:39 <Betty> amazing
11:21:46 <LETS GO CAPS> just like steamboat only redder
11:21:59 <ynpvisitor29> Watching geysers and fountaining lava at the same time :)
11:25:54 <Micah>|1

13:40:37 <ynpvisitor999®> It might be a while before the next Grand. Last two intervals near 7h
13:46:19 <ynpvisitor71> Graham - are you predicting a game seven?
13:49:24 <kc (working)> they were terribly off their game last time, hope they can pull it together
13:50:19 <kc (working)> congrats to KL. makes my team's management look like a bunch of fools they can't even keep us competitive
13:51:07 <LETS GO CAPS> game 7 will be awesome
13:51:43 <ynpvisitor71> Knights/Caps would make for interesting reading here
13:52:02 <LETS GO CAPS> looking unlikely tho
13:52:20 <LETS GO CAPS> could be two towns that dont have any real ice to play on
13:56:25 <Betty> LC
13:58:34 <Betty> nice closeup. thanks :-)
14:04:36 <LETS GO CAPS> Congrats Kevin ...... watch ot or every season is going to be downhill from here

14:53:48 <ynpvisitor45> the best laid plans...
14:54:08 <ynpvisitor32> PFFT
14:54:39 <ynpvisitor32> thats why I always put on my rain gear
14:54:47 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like the wind is blowing away from the webcam
14:55:22 <ynpvisitor45> toward Lion
14:55:43 <ynpvisitor999®> showers are taken
14:58:02 <ynpvisitor45> Grand folks did not have time to put on rain gear
14:58:11 <Betty> a fun one
14:58:45 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... that bison seems a bit too close to the people
14:59:44 <Betty> to me it seems the people are too close to those bison
15:00:25 <ynpvisitor999®> either way, I don't think you should be that close to a bison
15:00:44 <Betty> you are totally right
15:02:02 <Betty> OF
15:03:51 <ynpvisitor45> it turned into a very nice day.
15:05:26 <Betty> Dome?
15:06:31 <ynpvisitor999®> seems to be the case
15:07:01 <Betty> yep
15:09:02 <Betty> time for sleep. Night all
15:09:22 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
16:18:51 <Steph> Hi! What are Chromatic and Beauty Pools looking like now?
16:21:12 <ynpvisitor57> you might find something on geysertimes
16:21:36 <Steph> I was looking and didn't see anything. I was just wondering. Thanks!
16:26:16 <ynpvisitor70> I think there was something about them on the il
16:26:27 <ynpvisitor70> Listserv
16:27:08 <ynpvisitor70> May have been Barbara L.
16:28:46 <Steph> Thanks!
16:31:58 <ynpvisitor70> You may want to check Old chat posts too. You can see them in chat history on this page.
16:42:05 <Micah> Steph when I was there a couple weeks ago both were down and cooler. In the past couple years the exchange of function has given way to just looking....sad.
16:44:43 <Steph> Micah, thanks, and that is a bummer. I was hoping for better news. And I'd love to hear good news about Sawmill too. Guess we'll have to wait.
16:55:25 <ynpvisitor57> that's a trouble with facebook users - it's hard to know where you read something and find it again.
17:22:27 <ynpvisitor86> Good light
18:03:09 <ynpvisitor10> stream gone
18:03:29 <ynpvisitor86> mine working
18:03:45 <ynpvisitor88> Looks like power is out again.
18:05:14 <ynpvisitor88> Mine is back now.
18:27:52 <ynpvisitor86> Dome
