01:28:14 <Betty> OF
01:36:21 <Betty> looks like Turban
02:17:34 <Betty> Grand
02:19:14 <Betty> or just Turban
02:25:00 <Betty> Grand before Moonset would be nice
02:43:15 <Betty> bbl
03:48:17 <Steamboat +3> Morning. No Giant yet
03:49:51 <ynpvisitor74> Will you watch it today?
03:51:06 <Steamboat +3> A bit every day now till Sat
03:51:13 <Steamboat +3> Nice morning
03:51:32 <Steamboat +3> No evidence of hot periods yet
03:51:37 <ynpvisitor74> I hope you see it!!!
03:52:10 <Steamboat +3> I think that's inlikely, but thanks and LET'S GO GIANT AND CAPS
03:53:22 <Steamboat +3> quite a few of us leave this weekend but there are newcomers too
03:54:15 <Steamboat +3> Gushwas, Crosses, SteveO. Steve Eide, Polly and probably more
03:54:58 <Steamboat +3> Monday would be my best bet, peeps have been extending their stays if they van
03:55:50 <ynpvisitor74> the next shift arrives! Hope they get it
03:56:03 <Steamboat +3> Shame NG wasn't hot after BH. I was at Grand when BHI went and when it reached 10m I decided not to see the end and Eric too
03:56:42 <Steamboat +3> Yes, and those that missed it on Sunday too, they deserve it
03:57:21 <Steamboat +3> Carol and Bill should be there a lot, Bills weekend is Sun, Mon which is prime time
03:58:48 <ynpvisitor74> Giant would be a great closer for your trip - fingers crossed for you
03:59:59 <ynpvisitor111> Daisy
04:15:36 <Betty> wonder how I missed Grand this morning. Bet work came in my way :-p
04:16:15 <ynpvisitor111> that sometimes happens :)
04:16:27 <Betty> BAH :-D
04:27:22 <ynpvisitor111> very dirty camera dome
04:28:34 <ynpvisitor111> OF
04:29:07 <Betty> afternoon DG
04:29:57 <ynpvisitor999®> I just put in the Steamboat logger data into a graph maker. If I were to time the eruption exactly the same as I did with the other eruptions, the most recent Steamboat would've had a duration of about 10 minutes
04:35:50 <ynpvisitor999®> also, it took about 1-1½ minutes for water to reach the logger for that eruption
04:49:03 <ynpvisitor74> water goes everywhere - even new channels down into Cistern
04:50:30 <Betty> time to head home. bbl
04:50:43 <ynpvisitor111> Bye Betty
05:15:08 <ynpvisitor999®> This is as good as Steamboat's entire water phase on the 27th, for anyone that hasn't seen it yet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nnJbo9pCA4
05:15:55 <ynpvisitor999®> link is on the Google group too
05:26:35 <ynpvisitor111> tks DG
05:36:10 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
05:37:53 <Dave from B™> Morning DG
06:28:21 <Dave from B™> Dog
06:28:53 <ynpvisitor106> lazy dog
06:29:13 <ynpvisitor106> hey Dave, lc here.
06:29:18 <Dave from B™> For a minute, I thought my screen was frozen he is so still
06:29:21 <Dave from B™> Hi lc
06:32:23 <Dave from B™> lc, do you have your rooms all booked for your trips to and from YNP?
06:36:17 <Dave from B™> Daisy ie
06:41:39 <ynpvisitor106> will your family be with you and Becca this year?
06:42:03 <ynpvisitor106> I do for our June/July trip.
06:42:30 <ynpvisitor106> don't have all for labor day trip.
06:42:52 <Dave from B™> Parker and Michelle will be with us for a couple nights...not sure which ones yet
06:44:05 <ynpvisitor106> I think we may spend 3 nights on the road going out Laborday.
06:44:38 <Dave from B™> Isn't that the normal amount of nights for you?
06:45:17 <ynpvisitor106> only 2 nights going out, 3 coming home.
06:46:03 <Dave from B™> It is a long haul to do in 3 days. I'm sure 4 would be more relaxing.
06:46:31 <ynpvisitor106> days not quite as long end of Sept.
06:46:58 <Dave from B™> That's true; didn't think of that
06:48:42 <ynpvisitor106> and we could spend the last night in Lander or Riverton instead of Laramie.
06:50:26 <ynpvisitor106> I talked to Kitt yesterday, guess she is going to stick around and try to catch Steamboat again.
06:50:45 <Dave from B™> Trips this year will involve a LOT of sitting at Steamboat and Giant. Lots of time to tell stories:)
06:51:07 <Dave from B™> I'm glad Kitt got a Steamboat
06:51:34 <ynpvisitor106> hate to think about the drive to and from Norris.
06:52:08 <ynpvisitor106> Kitt said the parking lot was a jungle.
06:52:23 <ynpvisitor106> what will it be in July?
06:52:52 <Dave from B™> You will have to get there before 10 am
06:53:01 <Dave from B™> Maybe even 0900
06:53:26 <ynpvisitor106> probably.
06:55:31 <ynpvisitor106> west gate is backed up now.
06:58:39 <Dave from B™> Morning Jake, Kevin
06:59:45 <ynpvisitor106> bbl
07:03:21 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jake and Kevin
07:06:08 <Jimbo Neon> Remember that I said yesterday I'd like to see video of the lava fountains we could see on the Kilauea static cam?
07:06:17 <Jimbo Neon> https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/observatories/hvo/multimedia_uploads/multimediaFile-2138.mp4
07:08:29 <Dave from B™> Thanks Jimbo
07:21:32 <ynpvisitor74> hope Graham was near Dome - he's always wanted to get an initial! yay
07:22:13 <ynpvisitor74> oh it was IE...
07:22:19 <ynpvisitor111> he got it
07:23:11 <ynpvisitor74> was he up there?
07:23:57 <ynpvisitor111> he reported it, don't know if he was nearby
07:24:51 <ynpvisitor74> that's what I meant. he posted it IE, but being right there is what he has wanted to see
07:25:19 <Kevin L™> Morning
07:40:41 <ynpvisitor68> Old Faithful never gets old to watch
07:49:42 <Dave from B™> Time for Grand...woohoo

09:13:04 <ynpvisitor27> The thunder is nuts, yet no rain yet
09:13:16 <ynpvisitor27> radar looks like it is headed to Bozeman instead of park

09:28:46 <Kevin L™> You may be right Dave.
09:30:12 <ynpvisitor27> all other posts came through
09:30:20 <Kevin L™> Did you see the lava cam house lost power yesterday and had to be evacuated? They sure had some awesome shots from that place. And they say Rusty is fine.
09:31:36 <Jimbo Neon> That's good. Not surprised they had to evac
09:32:25 <Jimbo Neon> To paraphrase Robert E. Lee, "It is good that disasters are so terrible, else we would grow too fond of them."
09:33:35 <Steph> I am loving that there are tons of people there!
09:34:05 <Kevin L™> It was very interesting to watch. Could not believe the flow yesterday.
09:34:56 <Jimbo Neon> Pretty sure I would not want to be vacationing at Vacationland Hawaii right now
09:36:54 <lc> Kevin, you have a good link to see the lava flow?
09:37:02 <Steph> I can't believe the people that walk away from Bee
09:37:32 <Kevin L™> It is no longer running lc
09:37:48 <lc> ok, thanks.
09:38:51 <lc> I have watched several videos but don't have a link to a live cam.

09:59:35 <Dave from B™> Giantess will be erupting between 1340 and 1600 today
10:00:17 <Craig> Did you do some mystical geyser voodoo to conjure that time?
10:00:36 <Dave from B™> Nope....dentist appt...crown #3
10:01:54 <Craig> lol
10:01:56 <Craig> ouch
10:04:32 <Dave from B™> Last Giantess or the one before occurred during an appt
10:09:00 <Craig> Lion was just an initial and done?
10:09:38 <Dave from B™> Still another 15 minutes or so before it is due
10:09:56 <Craig> Oh I'm on central time thats right
10:10:26 <Dave from B™> Last 3 after inins have been between 116 and 123 interval
10:10:39 <Dave from B™> So, 1231-1238
10:13:54 <Dave from B™> Kevin, do you remember the year in which BH erupted while you have "taxi" duty almost every time?
10:14:01 <Dave from B™> had*
10:14:22 <Kevin L™> Yes I do. It always knew.
10:29:25 <Craig> oh hi lion
10:29:29 <Dave from B™> Math was incorrect earlier...Lion window was 1221-1228....I'm getting old:(
11:09:42 <Dave from B™> DaveM, do you know if Carol Slivka is planning on coming to the park this summer?
11:14:33 <ynpvisitor109> I haven't heard
11:19:43 <lc> hey Dave, she is in the park now.
11:19:52 <Dave from B™> Thanks, lc
11:20:16 <lc> not sure how long she is in for.
11:20:44 <lc> Kitt is staying with her.
11:21:14 <Dave from B™> Becca was reading the April Sput last night and didn't know about John. So, we shared memories of John and Carol. I'm still in shock. John was so excited about YNP and Arches.
11:21:49 <lc> you didn't know?
11:22:07 <lc> sorry I should have told you.
11:22:39 <Dave from B™> I knew. Becca didn't know
11:23:03 <lc> oh, understand.
11:23:13 <Dave from B™> Becca and I didn't talk much when she was at school. She talked to Michelle at least once a week.
11:24:23 <lc> I lost a very close friend here in Jan.
11:24:49 <Dave from B™> Sorry to hear that, lc
11:25:01 <lc> his wife depended on him for everything, she is just lost.
11:25:23 <Dave from B™> It is hard
11:26:10 <lc> yes, she has one daughter and nobody else.
11:27:32 <Dave from B™> Does the daughter live nearby?
11:28:16 <lc> yes
11:28:29 <Dave from B™> That's good.
11:29:23 <Dave from B™> Sorry, lc but I have to head to the dentist. Have a good day. Less than a month to go!
11:29:41 <lc> good luck
11:36:25 <Kevin L™> Watch for Giantess.
11:39:47 <Craig> lion
11:53:41 <Craig> daisy
12:14:40 <Jimbo Neon> Nice Castle spikes!!
12:20:40 <ynpvisitor72> Kevin, your mail service must have imporved.
12:21:13 <Kevin L™> Either that or I haven't ordered anything for a while.
12:22:08 <ynpvisitor72> I think they sent your carrier to me. Had mail on hold for 16 days. Got a small stack all banded together. 1/3 belongs to someone else.
12:22:47 <Kevin L™> That is unreal. Makes you wonder if you have any somewhere else.
12:26:44 <ynpvisitor72> You think? Now I have to go talk to the supervisor.
12:27:43 <Kevin L™> If that doesn't work you can file a complaint with the postal inspector.
13:00:04 <Betty> cam needs a cleaning
14:01:54 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
14:27:07 <ynpvisitor111> Daisy
14:33:37 <ynpvisitor999®> what on earth is all that noise on YFT, YMC and LKWY?
14:48:46 <Jake> heavy rain?
14:49:38 <ynpvisitor109> yep
14:51:16 <Jake> I meant as a possible explanation of seismo signals 999 asked about, doesn't seem likely though
14:54:45 <Kevin L™> Big raindrops.
14:58:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Plate?
14:59:07 <ynpvisitor999®> seems quite steamy up there
14:59:16 <ynpvisitor999®> same goes for Dep-ish
14:59:32 <Kevin L™> Looks like a push at Depression too
14:59:54 <ynpvisitor109> everything is quite steamy right now.
15:00:14 <Kevin L™> Been some nice boils today on Giantess.
15:00:28 <ynpvisitor999®> true, but Plate stood out for me
15:01:19 <ynpvisitor109> but that area has been looking like that for the past hour.
15:13:34 <ynpvisitor999®> was that Aurum a couple of seconds ago?
15:14:11 <ynpvisitor109> NO
15:14:25 <ynpvisitor999®> ok, thanks. It did look like it
15:14:57 <ynpvisitor109> On a day like today, teh steam cloud from Aurum will reach the top of the camera frame.
15:15:23 <ynpvisitor999®> ah, right
15:17:01 <Steamboat +4> Can you make it stop raining please?
15:17:28 <Steamboat +4> GO CAPS, GO GIANT
15:19:02 <Steamboat +4> I hope Kevin is in a bad mood tomorrow
15:19:29 <Steamboat +4> Does anyone know when Dave is Lea ING for Steamboat? Need to get people there the day before
15:22:37 <Kevin L™> I can see yet another bad Knight for Graham.
15:50:56 <Kevin L™> Yet another Grand in an OF window :p
15:50:57 <Jake> Grand ie
15:51:52 <ynpvisitor999®> seems to be D0
15:52:13 <Jake> OF windows are 20 minutes out of every 90 minutes => 20/90 = 22% of the day is an OF Window!
15:52:26 <Kevin L™> Hmmmm. Stanley Cup final games records. Caps 0-5 Aurum Knights 1-0.
15:53:26 <Kevin L™> Then how come does it always erupt at the start of an OF window?
15:55:50 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand needs some attention from OF watchers :)
15:59:42 <ynpvisitor36> Did you see they changed the welcome to Las Vegas sign? Las Vegas was in all caps so the changed it to small letters.
17:09:00 <ynpvisitor37> Nice lighting
17:39:47 <ynpvisitor88> F&M event in progress
17:40:37 <Michael> Sure, I'll pop in and hope for an F&M cloud.
17:48:00 <Michael> Daisy cloud works too.
17:48:51 <ynpvisitor88> niiiiice lighting!
17:49:00 <ynpvisitor88> perfection
18:10:28 <ynpvisitor103> Kevin, the Knights are behind!
18:12:31 <ynpvisitor116> Giant area happy.
18:20:08 <Michael> Oh well, the event cycle ended. Full details in Graham's post.
18:27:37 <ynpvisitor116> All that steam, and sun, Kevin would be happy.
19:00:19 <ynpvisitor97> Strongest non eruptive hot period and first F&M event at the SAME TIME. Arhhgh
19:03:48 <ynpvisitor97> What a way to end the day
19:03:54 <ynpvisitor97> CAPS WIN
19:07:09 <Steamboat +4> Now the CAPS have to figure out how to keep winning at home
19:12:39 <Kevin L™> Hey, we just wanted to win the Stanley Cup at home!
19:14:38 <Kevin L™> Congrats to the Caps for their first Stanley Cup Final win in 44 years!
