04:33:41 <Betty> OF ie
04:37:25 <Betty> Grand
04:38:31 <ynpvisitor8> Anybody taking bets on where the geyser gazers will be today?
04:39:11 <Betty> any other answer than Steamboat will lose :-)
04:39:50 <ynpvisitor8> Sooooooooo True!
04:45:15 <ynpvisitor69> 8min
04:47:14 <ynpvisitor69> 10min
04:49:09 <ynpvisitor69> 12min
04:57:15 <ynpvisitor69> I'll bet Dave from B and Becca and others are enjoying the rays of sunshine at Steamboat
04:57:53 <Betty> yup. Great day to be there
05:00:11 <ynpvisitor31> So Dave did go?
05:00:25 <Betty> yes
05:00:33 <ynpvisitor31> I bet they are cold right now!
05:00:52 <ynpvisitor31> Did he sleep in his car?
05:00:53 <Betty> I think they stayed out the whole night
05:01:01 <ynpvisitor69> If Steamboat erupts today and then keeps the same "schedule" I'll be there for the next
05:01:18 <Betty> :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
05:01:23 <Betty> cool
05:01:38 <ynpvisitor31> Some gazers think it is going to end soon
05:01:46 <ynpvisitor44> I read it as going home, with a post from them when they got to signal
05:01:54 <ynpvisitor31> Time will tell!
05:02:05 <ynpvisitor69> Dave posted at 2336 so...I think he stayed
05:04:15 <ynpvisitor44> Maybe, but I thought it would be once he got to Mammoth and got signal
05:05:08 <ynpvisitor44> we will find out! No word overnight yet.
05:05:15 <ynpvisitor31> It will be a hot day on the platform today once the day gets going
05:05:34 <ynpvisitor69> Dave lives only 4 hours away so I think he will not let this chance go by, and stay till late today if he has to.
05:06:07 <ynpvisitor31> I’m surprised he went when the bets are on tomorrow
05:06:30 <ynpvisitor31> It will be wonderful if it goes for him today
05:07:00 <ynpvisitor31> He will certainly know what minors look like if nothing else
05:07:42 <ynpvisitor69> Any time one gets to spend in Yellowstone whether you get the eruption you are looking for or not is still a great time
05:08:21 <ynpvisitor31> Yes though Dave wants Steamboat
05:11:18 <ynpvisitor69> one gazer at bee
05:41:09 <Betty> can we get Aurum in view?
05:45:38 <Betty> thanks a lot
05:46:25 <Betty> but don´t leave Daisy
05:47:34 <Betty> there we go
05:57:21 <ynpvisitor46> No overniinght from Norris
05:58:01 <Kent> Afternoon Betty
05:58:17 <Betty> morning Kent
05:58:37 <Kent> Going to be a glorious day in the land of the dirty dome
05:58:49 <Betty> are you packing?
05:59:21 <Betty> or do I get something wrong?
05:59:21 <Kent> Didn't go. Will try later.
05:59:35 <Betty> ah, I see
06:03:36 <Betty> I wonder why they do not clean the dome
06:04:40 <ynpvisitor69> the pole and some cleaning soulition would work well
06:05:18 <Kent> I saw them try once but it was ineffective. I am afraid they need the cherry picker and some elbow grease.
06:06:43 <ynpvisitor69> I saw them rub it with the pole but it did not look as if the applied any "windex" to the pads
06:07:42 <Betty> Lion
06:08:22 <Betty> OF
06:08:54 <Kent> Hosing it down with a Super-Squirter filled with Windex first might help.
06:09:25 <Betty> nice column at Lion
06:09:29 <Kent> Baby's first Old Faithful
06:21:18 <Betty> wow, Eric is in the Basin
06:21:49 <Betty> not at Steamboat
06:46:32 <kcmule> ~~
06:52:28 <Betty> hi kcmule
06:53:11 <kcmule> hi Betty
06:53:39 <Betty> have not seen you for a while
06:53:44 <kcmule> do u know if it's possible to change the stream type? I'd rather use the 30 sec delay
06:54:29 <Betty> hm, nope
06:54:39 <kcmule> their arms must be getting tired
06:54:57 <Betty> :-)
06:55:31 <kcmule> if I bring this page up in Edge it defaults to 30 sec delay; on chrome it uses RTMP Live
07:05:01 <ynpvisitor42> Is Riverside ie?
07:06:17 <ynpvisitor42> Disable flash kc and you will get the delayed hls stream
07:07:06 <kcmule> ah thanks 42
07:07:27 <kcmule> the answer to life the universe and everything including stream questions
07:07:35 <kcmule> dont think riverside is ie though
07:07:44 <kcmule> grotto would be my guess
07:24:29 <Betty> Riverside
07:24:58 <Betty> Lion

07:37:35 <ynpvisitor89> raven running away from the eruption!
07:52:16 <Betty> hi Kevin
07:53:06 <kevin l™> hi betty
07:53:48 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all, afternoon Betty
07:54:22 <Michael> Hi DG
07:54:47 <Betty> hi DG and Michael
07:55:18 <ynpvisitor999®> interesting note on NG today
07:55:49 <ynpvisitor999®> almost seems like NG is trying to become more active this year
07:56:16 <Betty> it is filling and draining all the time
07:57:23 <ynpvisitor999®> true, but I don't think it's always been this long during periods of less or no activity
07:58:30 <Betty> well, enjoy BH, I´m appointed with a friend. bbl
07:58:50 <ynpvisitor999®> have fun
07:59:08 <Michael> See you soon. We'll tell you all about it.
07:59:16 <kevin l™> later betty
08:00:39 <Michael> NG Overflowing for 2 minutes out of every 10 has been typical for as long as I can remember. I'm not sure what Eric meant by a "5-minute fill."
08:02:19 <ynpvisitor999®> oh well... we'll see what happens
08:02:39 <ynpvisitor999®> would like it if NG becomes more active this year
08:05:22 <Michael> I'm just very confused by it having only one series of eruptions and then going quiet. I thought it would have more series every few days.
08:08:07 <Michael> Depression
08:08:26 <ynpvisitor999®> nice burst
08:09:38 <ynpvisitor22> I am never certain what is an eruption and what is a smudge.
08:11:40 <Michael> I'm more confident during the middle of the day, when a quiet pool doesn't have much steam.
08:12:18 <Michael> When I sign on in the morning or late evening, it always looks to me like it's erupting.
08:19:40 <ynpvisitor22> Daisy
08:20:46 <ynpvisitor22> Not a smudge, honest :)
08:22:37 <ynpvisitor22> Norris from Graham on GT
08:24:47 <Michael> Thanks for the tip. Hope everyone gets to see it today.
08:31:00 <Michael> IS BHI going?
08:31:48 <Michael> Contrast is bad, but there's a steam smudge in the right place.
08:32:54 <ynpvisitor22> I vote yes, but then I never vote for winners.
08:34:13 <Michael> That answers it.
08:35:43 <kevin l™> it knew i was cooking
08:39:40 <ynpvisitor999®> back on time :)
08:46:04 <Michael> Up, up, and away!
08:47:33 <ynpvisitor109> Sorry, controls are misbehaving this morning.
08:48:09 <ynpvisitor999®> at least Indy was behaving again
08:48:35 <ynpvisitor31> Nice and tall
08:58:23 <ynpvisitor31> Where is Inverted Geyser?
08:59:06 <Michael> Somewhere in middle of Geyser Hill.
08:59:47 <ynpvisitor31> Thanks
08:59:52 <ynpvisitor999®> according to the map northeast of The Dwarfs
09:00:48 <ynpvisitor31> Graham’s note leading me to stay with Monday or Tuesday for Steamboat
09:01:28 <ynpvisitor31> I wish Giant would have erupted for him. He is on his way home now.
09:01:50 <ynpvisitor31> Maybe Eric will luck out.
09:31:05 <Michael> OF. Worth the wait.
09:42:47 <ynpvisitor999®> welcome back, Betty
09:43:11 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
09:48:09 <Betty> thx, DG
09:52:00 <ynpvisitor999®> BA
09:57:01 <ynpvisitor999®> is that Little Anemone between OF's vent and BA spot?
09:57:13 <ynpvisitor999®> or a completely different geyser?
09:58:58 <Betty> that is Improbable
09:59:23 <Betty> LA ie right of BA
09:59:34 <Betty> very close to it
09:59:48 <ynpvisitor999®> right
10:00:09 <kevin l™> aka pathetic little hole.
10:00:10 <Betty> ie = is
10:00:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I thought Improbable was to the left of OF's vent from webcam perspective
10:01:27 <Betty> no. you can see it slightly splashing from time to time
10:02:08 <ynpvisitor81> It's to the right, yeah.
10:02:15 <Betty> There was one eruption a year or two ago withe the size of NG/Aurum
10:04:01 <ynpvisitor999®> you mean this one: https://geysertimes.org/eruption.php?id=783608 ?
10:04:24 <ynpvisitor999®> BA
10:04:49 <Betty> yup
10:05:35 <Betty> that was a nice Improbable burst
10:05:46 <ynpvisitor999®> must've mirrored that video somehow in my head then
10:06:04 <ynpvisitor81> Improbably frequently surges 5-8 feet now ever since its last major eruption in 2015.
10:06:27 <ynpvisitor81> It can give you a heart attack waiting at Beehive.
10:06:55 <Betty> so as Plume did :-)
10:06:57 <ynpvisitor81> Micah used to call those minors but they got so frequent he doesn't even bother logging them now.
10:14:00 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand in both windows now
10:17:25 <ynpvisitor999®> BA
10:23:35 <ynpvisitor13> Will, is it possible to donate towards GT through GOSA. Send GOSA a check that says this for Geyser Times?
10:26:37 <Betty> Time for the next Turban
10:26:47 <ynpvisitor999®> BA
10:27:09 <kevin l™> something tells me you are not going to see grand.
10:27:35 <Betty> with this view...nope :-)
10:28:00 <ynpvisitor999®> LA ie?
10:29:21 <kevin l™> have a good day. see you tomorrow.
10:29:30 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Kevin
10:29:40 <Betty> same to you, bye Kevi
10:29:59 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, are your caps lock and both shift keys broken, Kevin?
10:30:07 <Betty> streaming is choppy now
10:30:22 <kevin l™> no caps for me dg
10:30:31 <ynpvisitor999®> fair enough
10:30:33 <Betty> he does not use caps atm ;-)
10:30:55 <Betty> he only uses knights
10:30:57 <ynpvisitor31> Love it!!
10:31:11 <ynpvisitor999®> something says me something happened with the Caps in the past few days... haha
10:31:12 <ynpvisitor31> No CAPS, go Knights
10:33:58 <ynpvisitor31> Isn’t Will at Steamboat?
10:35:34 <Micah(mobile)> I believe he's at work.
10:36:54 <ynpvisitor31> Too bad. Thought he had some time off with Ryan
10:37:18 <Micah(mobile)> I think he might still have a day or so in the park in the next week. But not sure.
10:38:20 <ynpvisitor31> No GHP notes today...
10:38:43 <Will B> 13 we have not arranged for that. so would probably need to ask the GOSA board first if that is possible also need to ask Paul Thompson if that is ok with him
10:39:02 <Will B> and yes i am at work in bozeman
10:41:39 <ynpvisitor31> 9 1/2 hr Grand early today. Yikes
10:42:24 <Micah> I bet Rift was responsible for that nonsense.
10:42:36 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if it has anything to do with Economic heating up and having convection over its vent every so often now
10:43:36 <Micah> Economic's ability to affect Grand is greatly exaggerated. I would be surprised if Economic has anything to do with it right now.
10:43:39 <ynpvisitor31> That’s the longest in a while.
10:44:34 <Micah> Rift was ie during the 1700 hour yesterday. If it pulled another 5-6 hour eruption I could easily see it delaying Grand. It did that to me during my visit.
10:48:40 <Betty> hi Lori, Will and Micah
10:51:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
10:51:51 <Lori> good afternoon, all
10:54:32 <Betty> hi Emily
10:54:45 <Emily> hi
10:55:12 <Betty> OF
10:55:25 <Betty> or is my static stuck?
10:55:49 <Betty> Grand
10:55:55 <Betty> ie
10:57:30 <ynpvisitor999®> unsurprisingly Grand went during an OF window
11:00:28 <ynpvisitor999®> 8m into Grand
11:02:47 <ynpvisitor999®> 10m into Grand, b1 done
11:04:06 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q | 10m
11:09:05 <Betty> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz time till next OF
12:33:49 <ynpvisitor36> What happened to Giant? I don't understnad any of the notes so have no idea why no one is watching or making more notes. Did it give up?
12:34:17 <Betty> I think they are all at Steamboat
12:35:29 <ynpvisitor36> What, they do not get together to see who draws the short staw to watch Giant?
12:36:18 <ynpvisitor36> Or did they pick Kevin?
12:36:31 <Betty> haha, no
12:37:04 <ynpvisitor36> Too bad Germany is not closer, you could join them.
12:37:31 <Betty> I sure would!
12:59:26 <ynpvisitor40> Should I be speculative of "Inverted Geyser" having erupted for the first time in 42 years? Was that a data entry error?
13:02:57 <ynpvisitor118> New Steamboat note
13:04:46 <ynpvisitor40> Sounds pretty promising.
13:05:05 <Micah> There's been some debate as to the identity of that sput up above Marmot Cave.
13:05:25 <Micah> I remember back when I first started gazing in 2013/2014 there was a rather boisterous discussion as to whether it was inverted or not.
13:05:49 <Micah> There's also multiple eruptive features in that area. Including one I saw during my earlier visit.
13:07:01 <ynpvisitor40> Thanks Micah. That make sense.
13:49:42 <Steamboat +7> Hello. Has Kevin gone into hiding?
13:51:22 <Steamboat +7> Lots of people at Steamboat this morning
14:45:06 <ynpvisitor108> 5PM cam op delayed. I hope to be home before 6 PM. Sorry
15:31:43 <ynpvisitor781> OF
15:50:22 <ynpvisitor109> daisy
17:05:20 <ynpvisitor105> OF
17:05:25 <Michael> OF
17:09:53 <ynpvisitor105> Grand
17:10:19 <ynpvisitor60> I was going to say it were grand time.
17:11:00 <ynpvisitor60> With everyone at Steamboat, it will be a triple.
17:11:20 <ynpvisitor105> :):thumbsup::thumbsup:
17:12:22 <ynpvisitor105> Missed Fluffy
17:13:21 <ynpvisitor60> Not me, seen it twice this year. That will last me the next 10 years.
17:13:32 <ynpvisitor105> :)
17:25:55 <ynpvisitor60> No triple? I had to go out and talk to someone.
17:27:48 <Michael> Just one burst from Grand. Still waiting on Castle, Lion, and Giant.
17:28:10 <ynpvisitor60> Good light for Castle
17:48:21 <ynpvisitor60> Lion looks happy
17:52:15 <ynpvisitor60> Graham needs to clean the cam while he is there.
17:52:40 <Michael> What does he charge? I'll chip in.
17:53:03 <Steph> That would be awesome, and we would all be grateful!
17:53:41 <ynpvisitor60> I would suggest JimS, but I don't think he does windows.
18:01:28 <ynpvisitor60> Castle
18:01:34 <ynpvisitor60> Maybe not
18:01:49 <ynpvisitor60> nope
18:01:55 <Steph> I always think that, and it never is...
18:02:04 <ynpvisitor60> Teaser
18:02:16 <ynpvisitor60> But with the spots?
18:02:25 <ynpvisitor60> Easy to be fooled
18:02:45 <ynpvisitor60> Especially when willing.
18:02:51 <Steph> Even without spots, I'm fooled all the time. :lol:
18:04:11 <ynpvisitor60> We took a newbie this May. First geyser she saw was Castle
18:04:15 <Michael> That's got to be for real, though.
18:04:15 <ynpvisitor60> Weeeee
18:04:22 <ynpvisitor105> Really hate dem spots!@
18:04:37 <ynpvisitor60> Even in the fog it is nice with the back light
18:04:41 <Steph> Gorgeous!
18:04:57 <Michael> Castle is a nice way to discover geysers!
18:05:35 <ynpvisitor60> Nice tall spikes.
18:07:03 <ynpvisitor60> After Fountain BH, and Riverside, she thought OF was not what it is hyped up to be.
18:07:20 <ynpvisitor60> Her first OF was a dud though.
18:07:42 <ynpvisitor60> And being 3 deep in the line of people was no fun.
18:08:04 <Michael> After Fountain and Beehive, it's hard for any other geyser to put on as good a show.
18:08:25 <Steph> I adore Grand too!
18:08:28 <ynpvisitor60> Fountain was steamy. BH was, well BH.
18:09:00 <ynpvisitor60> Grand was a walk up after OF. She never got the excitement of waiting.
18:10:29 <ynpvisitor60> Or anticipation, or boredom.
18:11:12 <ynpvisitor60> Well, time to go
18:11:48 <Michael> Bye, 60. Nice talking with you.
18:11:59 <Steph> See you!
18:24:10 <Michael> Daisy
18:43:55 <Michael> OF
18:44:41 <Michael> Nice pink lighting
19:51:05 <ynpvisitor30> Another volcano is erupting in Guatemala. Can the Yellowstone super volcano be far behind? They must all be connected.
19:57:13 <Michael> I can't tell if you're joking or not. The serious answer is that the Volcano in Guatemala has been erupting on and off for 15 years, and it's not connected to Yellowstone in any meaningful way.
20:02:47 <ynpvisitor30> Yes I am joking. The sad thing is there are so many nuts that you have to wonder!
20:04:35 <ynpvisitor30> BTW take a look at the Kilauea lava maps for today. Swallowed a whole subdivision. :(
20:06:46 <Michael> I saw that. The 200-foot incandescent rock geyser is a Force of Nature in every sense of the words.
20:13:27 <ynpvisitor30> I miss the live cam. It was interesting watching the lava flowing.
20:18:45 <ynpvisitor66> OF
20:25:59 <Michael> Lion has outlasted me again. Good night, and good luck to everyone out chasing geysers in person.
21:45:15 <Micah> Update from Steamboat, big pushes around 5 o'clock and 9pm but not as massive and cardiac inducing as the noon series.
21:45:53 <Micah> It is currently unattended but observers will be back around 5 am barring an eruption overnight.
