02:30:25 <ynpvisitor999®> back after taking some valueable sleep
02:30:46 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like the bug didn't occur for my 1933 E time
02:34:51 <ynpvisitor999®> In response to the 1915 eruption on seismos: I hadn't anticipated for the (start of the) water phase to be visible on YNR & YNM seismos. As I, probably due to excitement, didn't see the little bit of noise on YNM seismo @ 1917 and didn't know YNR would pick up Steamboat, I thought the start of the steam phase occurred @ 1933, with the water phase simply not showing on the seismo.
02:42:46 <ynpvisitor999®> It's good to have an in-basin time nonetheless. I wonder how this 19m eruption looks like on the NPS logger
03:16:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep is up to something
03:17:01 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it's ie
03:18:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle?
03:36:08 <ynpvisitor999®> Steam from between the tree in front of Castle's trees
03:37:03 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd still like to know whether or not we're looking at runoff channel steam or a (new) feature
03:39:01 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle seems to be a major
04:05:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand 0603
04:05:33 <ynpvisitor999®> I already thought it was ie, based on the towering plume above the morning fog
04:13:04 <ynpvisitor12> I see the Steamboat gazers are now in the basin
04:15:18 <ynpvisitor999®> huge glowing cloud on Kilauea static
04:16:02 <ynpvisitor999®> G1C | 9m50s
04:32:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
05:33:03 <ynpvisitor102> DG, the reason your eruption time for Steamboat did not remain primary is because the time was so far off. If observed time had in fact been 1933, yours would have remained. Now you know the majors last longer than 3 minutes!
05:33:56 <ynpvisitor102> Interesting that it is steam phase that the seismo reacts to.
05:34:37 <ynpvisitor102> So many happy gazers, good to see video of the eruption
05:36:02 <ynpvisitor12> is the video just on the private FB page?
05:53:13 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone!
05:53:40 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
05:53:50 <ynpvisitor111> morning Dave, lc here.
05:54:24 <Dave from B™> Hi, lc. so, did kitt catch Steamboat?
05:54:41 <ynpvisitor111> don't know
05:55:11 <ynpvisitor111> no answer from her or Donnie and Betty.
05:55:42 <ynpvisitor111> guess Bruce got it?
05:56:00 <ynpvisitor111> and Eric?
05:56:17 <Dave from B™> I know Graham, Beverlys, Art were there
05:56:47 <ynpvisitor111> didn't know about Art.
05:56:52 <Dave from B™> Suzanne, HK
05:57:32 <ynpvisitor111> looks like Russell had gone to OF area.
05:57:32 <Dave from B™> The video with dirty water erupting was amazing
05:57:54 <ynpvisitor111> where is that link?
05:59:23 <Dave from B™> They are on FB right now but I'm sure they'll end up on the Google Group very soon.
05:59:44 <Dave from B™> There are multiple videos...at least 3 that I know of
05:59:58 <ynpvisitor111> ok
06:00:24 <Emily> morning
06:00:52 <ynpvisitor111> morning
06:01:00 <ynpvisitor999®> morning
06:01:09 <Dave from B™> Morning Emily
06:12:03 <ynpvisitor102> Im
06:12:18 <ynpvisitor102> I’m glad MA was there!
06:13:16 <ynpvisitor102> If it had not stormed a few hours before, more gazers would have stuck it out
06:14:33 <Dave from B™> Great news re MA!
06:29:02 <ynpvisitor111> just got text from Kitt, she got Steamboat.
06:29:33 <Dave from B™> Nice...how about Betty and Donnie?
06:29:33 <Micah> There's a full list of people who were there on Facebook too.
06:29:40 <Micah> The Grissos did not catch it.
06:30:41 <Dave from B™> Hi, Micah. That list must have gotten posted in the last 90 minutes or so. I didn't see it aerlier
06:30:58 <Micah> No it got posted yesterday.
06:31:00 <ynpvisitor111> hate to hear that
06:31:13 <Micah> In the comments section.
06:31:56 <Dave from B™> So many threads, I missed that one
06:32:10 <Micah> So many photos and videos.
06:32:38 <Micah> 24 hours ago the video of the 1991 start was the holy grail. Now it's like you don't know what to watch first.
06:33:20 <lc> can I see that Micha?
06:33:31 <Micah> The list?
06:33:35 <Micah> I'll transpose it sure.
06:33:39 <Micah> Hang on.
06:34:49 <Micah> KC and Julie Thomson M.A Bellingham Jens Day Kyle Ross Eric Z. Carol Beverly, Kitt Barger, Linda Strasser, Matt Hocker, Heinrich, Graham, The Gemar Family, Dave Warnock and Debbie, Kathy Ann Friz Davis, and Tom C.
06:34:56 <Micah> Probably several others.
06:35:33 <Dave from B™> Yep, Art was there based on his video/photos
06:37:02 <lc> thanks Micha.
06:37:49 <Micah> I now have a list of people who aren't allowed to say another word to me about my screaming ;)
06:37:54 <lc> wonder about Bruse and Nick.
06:38:05 <Dave from B™> haha Micah!!!!
06:38:06 <Micah> Negative.
06:38:15 <Micah> Bruce left with the thunderstorm.
06:47:19 <Micah> I'm just personally glad we can lay these "It's not going as high as it used to" statements I've seen online for the past 5 years to rest.
06:47:46 <Micah> 19 minute water phase and considerably taller than Giant.
06:48:15 <lc> that is good to hear.
06:49:11 <lc> I really hate the storm ran some of the gazers away.
06:49:14 <Dave from B™> How can we explain the fact that the steam phase is so much shorter this year?
06:49:32 <Micah> Faster recovery time.
06:49:34 <Micah> probably.
06:52:07 <lc> wouldn't even venture a guess.
06:52:17 <ynpvisitor12> next Steamboat eruption estimate?
06:52:33 <Emily> onday
06:53:23 <lc> how can NG erupt 20 some time in 8 to 10 hrs then stop for who knows how long.
06:53:25 <ynpvisitor12> or one night?
06:53:56 <Micah> Monday morning into Tuesday night.
06:55:09 <Micah> I wouldnt' be surprised if we didn't start getting in basin times till ~11 or 12.
06:55:15 <ynpvisitor12> thanks Micah
06:55:19 <Micah> Due to the fact that everyone is probably out cold right now.
06:55:48 <Dave from B™> Fun, Eric just got Atomizer
06:56:33 <ynpvisitor12> Eric had a 0558 sprinkler
06:56:38 <Emily> steamboat...then atomizer
06:57:00 <Micah> Slight downgrade in scale aha
06:57:04 <lc> but it was a major
07:01:39 <sparekitty> does anyone know if there is good publically available wifi at OF? i'm going to be in the park but will have to work a couple hours a day. suggestions? i'd even go to mammoth if that might work. just looking for suggestions.
07:01:46 <Dave from B™> Hope Eric catches Artemesia
07:01:53 <Micah> sparekitty that's a negatory
07:02:05 <Micah> You have to pay and it's not great.
07:02:23 <sparekitty> huh. that's what i recall from my previous winter visit but i figured i'd ask.
07:02:33 <Emily> its horrensous
07:02:40 <sparekitty> thanks for the info!
07:06:49 <ynpvisitor108> spare kitty I think you can get decent WiFi in West Yellowstone. I think there is at least one “Internet cafe” type place near the entrance.
07:07:41 <ynpvisitor108> Probably not the fastest speed but should be okay. Bet you can google it.
07:08:05 <sparekitty> my daughter lives in west and that's where i'll be starting...thanks for the info!
07:17:45 <ynpvisitor12> Daisy
07:24:16 <Kevin L™> Huge plume at Kilauea
07:24:38 <Micah> Riverside?
07:25:09 <Kevin L™> 0918 Micah
07:26:14 <Micah> thanks. I have about a billion tabs open so I'm having a hard time keeping track of things.
07:26:53 <Micah> OF
07:28:38 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the info, Micah. I'm going home to listen to Steamboat videos for the first time with Becca.
07:28:56 <Micah> Have fun!
07:29:06 <Dave from B™> Will do.
07:29:17 <Dave from B™> i would have been there today if Steamboat was still in play
07:29:46 <Kevin L™> You should charge people for the next time you are headed there Dave.
07:30:07 <Kevin L™> If they have the time, they won't need to wait as long.
07:30:07 <Dave from B™> Yep...I will release that info later today and then everyone can plan own trip
07:30:48 <Dave from B™> My Steamboat log this year: Packed for 2 day trips to Steamboat and 2 eruptions the evening before
07:32:51 <Dave from B™> I do not want to spend half my 6 night end of June trip going back and forth to Norris
07:50:17 <Kevin L™> I can relate Dave
08:11:02 <Kevin L™> Back in 1982 I decided not to spend my entire vacation hoping for one geyser but I did spend about a day. Never saw a major but I have had a few minors to about 120' which were impressive.
09:51:26 <ynpvisitor28> Daisy
09:52:55 <Betty> hi all
09:53:51 <Betty> is Eric still floating? :-)
09:53:53 <Steph> Hi Betty!
09:54:05 <Kevin L™> I think so Betty

09:55:00 <Steph> Love all the videos!!
09:55:36 <Kevin L™> I haven't seen any yet. I don't do the facebook thing.

09:58:35 <Betty> I should have known it was you Kent :-) ready for catching the next Steamboat?
09:58:49 <Betty> hi lc
09:58:56 <Steph> Hope no one minds that copy and paste. Do you have to be a FB user to see?
09:59:02 <ynpvisitor60> yep
09:59:04 <Betty> thx Steph
09:59:10 <ynpvisitor60> but thanks for sending!
09:59:15 <lc> hi Betty
09:59:20 <ynpvisitor...> I'll be in between. Giant would be nice. Planning on at least one Aurum
09:59:29 <Betty> bah, link does not work
09:59:31 <Steph> https://www.facebook.com/stephen.gemar/videos/1998528103514841/?t=0
09:59:42 <Steph> That's the second one in steam phase
10:00:00 <Kevin L™> Aurum has been shy today.
10:00:09 <Betty> no chance to see it :-( bummer
10:00:29 <Steph> Let me know if you can view those two, and I will post some from Art and Bill
10:00:34 <lc> can't get it
10:00:42 <Kevin L™> Can't get it
10:00:54 <Betty> can´t get it
10:01:04 <Steph> Stinkbugs
10:01:11 <Steph> Let me see what I can do
10:01:19 <Kevin L™> Kilauea was busy busy busy last Knight.
10:02:53 <Kevin L™> Looks like Turban
10:03:05 <Betty> yup
10:03:40 <Kevin L™> Fingers are not working today.
10:21:29 <ynpvisitor28> Grand
10:21:35 <Kevin L™> Grand

10:22:34 <Kevin L™> Sleepy people here today, Had to wake them up.
10:23:07 <Steph> :heart::grand::heart:
10:29:09 <Dave from B> Hi, Kevin...total domination by #18 yesterday
10:29:38 <Kevin L™> As it should be
10:31:01 <Dave from B> My favoriter part was after the race. Before he did his burnout he drove to his pit and congratulated each and every member of his crew.
10:31:07 <ynpvisitor28> 2nd
10:31:08 <Dave from B> favorite*
10:31:13 <ynpvisitor28> or am I wrong
10:31:14 <Dave from B> woohoo
10:31:30 <Kevin L™> a 2nd
10:31:41 <ynpvisitor28> I guess so. It lagged just as it looked like it was starting
10:31:49 <ynpvisitor...> +
10:32:57 <Kevin L™> That crew was great!
10:33:27 <ynpvisitor28> Good show, even if OF tried to distract us.
10:40:08 <Betty> Hi Jimbo holiday
10:40:59 <Betty> no OF posted. When did it start?
10:41:15 <Betty> ah, there it is
10:41:57 <Betty> took 6 min to show up here. now I´m even lagged with geyser times :-(
10:42:06 <Jimbo> hi
10:42:38 <ynpvisitor...> I feel your pain :)
10:45:17 <Steph> Well, I've tried every trick to get the steamboat vids. Sorry I'm not savvy enough! I wish the Gazers would embed the vids, then people not on FB could see them.
10:45:59 <Betty> thanks for your try
10:46:08 <Kevin L™> yes
10:46:27 <ynpvisitor84> https://www.facebook.com/GeyserStudy/videos/1030861510404389/
10:46:37 <ynpvisitor84> that is from the public gosa page
10:46:43 <ynpvisitor84> it should work
10:46:46 <Steph> Oh nice!!!!
10:47:13 <Betty> this works!!! great . THANKS
10:47:29 <ynpvisitor84> https://www.facebook.com/GeyserStudy/
10:47:34 <ynpvisitor84> there are a few on there
10:47:43 <Steph> You rock socks!
10:47:45 <Kevin L™> Thanks that works
10:51:07 <Betty> I like the screams. They are mich louder than Micah´s :-)
10:51:26 <Betty> *much
10:52:23 <Kevin L™> That thing sure kicks out the stones.
10:54:23 <Dave from B> I love the muddy water
10:55:52 <Betty> hi Dave, I think all those guy owe you a big beer
10:56:36 <Betty> *guys
11:00:37 <Betty> Plate?
11:01:27 <Kevin L™> If it was a blue bubble it could be a blue plate lunch special.
11:02:05 <Betty> or a 3 item Plate from Panda Express
11:03:08 <Dave from B> Yes, 20 big beers please:)
11:03:41 <Kevin L™> Forgot you may not get that one Betty: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue-plate_special
11:03:56 <Betty> some spritzing maybe
11:04:26 <Dave from B> I really miss Plume
11:04:45 <Betty> me too
11:04:53 <Betty> Aurum
11:05:02 <Betty> on static
11:05:14 <Kevin L™> :p
11:05:16 <ynpvisitor...> :thumbsup::thumbsup:
11:05:42 <ynpvisitor...> Most Excellent!
11:05:45 <Kevin L™> Missed it for a plate. That thing just hates me. :P
11:06:15 <Betty> sorry for getting you a look at Plate :-(
11:06:24 <ynpvisitor...> That was as good as we get on static.
11:09:33 <Dave from B> I better get some chores done. Talk to everyone tomorrow from work. Have a great evening!
11:10:01 <Kevin L™> Have a good Knight Dave.
11:10:08 <Betty> bye Dave
11:11:02 <Dave from B> Enjoy the hockey game Kevin. Lots of good action tonight. Game 7 Warrior/Rockets. US Mens soccer tonight as well.
11:44:36 <Kevin L™> Aurum
11:44:37 <Kevin L™> .
11:44:37 <Kevin L™> .
11:44:38 <Kevin L™> .
11:44:39 <Kevin L™> .
11:44:39 <Kevin L™> .
11:45:07 <Betty> ok, I believe this one more than mine
11:45:08 <Kevin L™> ?
11:45:33 <Kevin L™> I had to do a triple take
11:45:49 <Betty> nice catch
11:46:01 <Kevin L™> :)
11:46:13 <Kevin L™> I take back half the bad things I said.
11:47:14 <Kevin L™> My Peaches are ripe now Betty.
11:47:53 <Betty> yummy
11:47:54 <Kevin L™> That sure looked like Aurum on static.
11:48:32 <Kevin L™> Kilauea getting rowdy again.
11:48:52 <Betty> but this one looked better on static
11:51:54 <Betty> Plate was 1335 by Jim
11:54:46 <Kevin L™> Eric got Artemesia
11:55:53 <Betty> he´s working on his bucket list I think :-)
11:56:57 <Betty> this trip he might try to get Giant, on the next F&M
11:58:00 <Kevin L™> I have all my geyser bucket list done. Need to hit Cumbres & Toltec and the spiral tunnels and I will be good.
12:05:49 <Kevin L™> Lion
12:06:33 <Betty> yay
12:11:43 <Kevin L™> It would be nice if the gazers from Steamboat get a NG series.
12:14:49 <ynpvisitor13> It would be nice if the NG wc gazers get to see Steamboat
12:24:10 <ynpvisitor...> That was interesting. I wish I had been here to see it. First Aurum really was good on static. Counting unhatched chickens? :(
12:24:45 <Kevin L™> Looks like Depression
12:25:50 <Kevin L™> The video was a fore sure.
12:27:09 <ynpvisitor...> We need one more before dark. Closed interval would be nice.
12:42:58 <ynpvisitor27> yeah, Eric got Artemisia
12:44:22 <Kevin L™> But he missed Aurum
12:49:29 <ynpvisitor27> oh drat, those are opposite ends. He cannot see Arti from the cam, so score one for him
12:54:52 <Ryan(-4)> We stayed in the Artemisa province in Cuba. Subtle, but significant, spelling and pronunciation difference.
12:55:41 <Ryan(-4)> Apparently Artemisia and Artemisa are not the same.
13:04:21 <lc> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fSBbC74ujI
13:04:48 <lc> another Steamboat video.
13:06:45 <lc> I didn't realize the start of Steamboat had not been seen in 20 years or so.
13:11:20 <Betty> thx lc
13:14:42 <ynpvisitor85> little cub ie
13:15:09 <Craig> Good video of the water column
13:15:10 <Craig> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCx_UktDVjo
13:21:51 <Kevin L™> Lion #2
13:22:37 <Kevin L™> Maybe 1 1/2?
13:23:00 <Craig> weak
13:23:16 <Kevin L™> Plat looks stronger
13:26:26 <Kevin L™> I know, it is waiting to go with OF
13:44:33 <Kevin L™> Steam at Grotto
13:47:18 <Kevin L™> What did I tell y9ou?
13:48:17 <Kevin L™> That was better but still a wimpy
13:49:10 <Betty> headed out, night all
13:49:25 <Kevin L™> Good Knight Betty
13:49:37 <Kevin L™> Lion is strange
13:50:47 <Kevin L™> This one looks like a major
13:51:01 <Craig> Lol oh hi lion
13:51:17 <Craig> someone put it as minor
13:52:02 <Kevin L™> It had a minor at 1546
13:52:06 <lc> they need to change it.
13:52:11 <Craig> oh it did?
13:52:12 <Craig> weird
13:52:35 <Kevin L™> It is correct. One report from the fie,d and 2 wc reports
13:53:33 <Kevin L™> Very strange series.
13:54:17 <lc> Kevin I didn't see the start of that Lion. what happened?
13:55:02 <Kevin L™> It had an initial and 2 minors before a major.
13:55:49 <Kevin L™> GT does not want to post a major
13:56:14 <lc> was the last minor just a minute before the major?
13:59:52 <Kevin L™> It was about 4m
14:02:44 <Will B> kevin if an entry is combining wrong post one of them under "other geyser" then after it posts change it back to lion. It will stay separate as long as another entry in the grouping range does not get entered
14:03:18 <Kevin L™> Entries are correct Will.
14:03:52 <Kevin L™> It just list them as secondary
14:04:15 <Will B> and if you need them both as primary do as i described above
14:04:42 <Kevin L™> Looks like Eric's watch is a minute faster than the GT clock.

15:33:14 <sparekitty> my daughter was at steamboat earlier today and all she got was a fabulous pictue of Porcelin Basin with a storm in the west.
15:38:51 <Kevin L™> This is from the GOSA public area on FB: https://www.facebook.com/GeyserStudy/videos/1030861510404389/
15:40:19 <ynpvisitor12> thanks

16:14:15 <Kevin L™> It's Knight time!
