02:33:29 <Betty> OF
02:56:16 <ynpvisitor48> daisy
02:56:36 <ynpvisitor48> sorry
02:56:45 <Betty> :-)
02:56:54 <Betty> morning 48
02:57:24 <Betty> how about Riverside?
02:57:51 <Betty> or is this too far left?
02:58:09 <ynpvisitor48> morning Betty, I was doing the /gt for daisy and my /gt did not take
02:58:52 <ynpvisitor48> Riverside due 0544
02:59:17 <Betty> DaveM has it 0451
02:59:55 <Betty> wind is drifting to the left, and I was not sure about it. Thx Dave
03:00:23 <ynpvisitor48> I see, /gt misslead me
03:00:37 <Betty> now I see it in the spot it used to be
03:01:07 <ynpvisitor48> yep
03:01:46 <Betty> exciting short interval on Steamboat.
03:02:23 <ynpvisitor57> should keep an eye on the Rverside area just in case there was a mistake in the identification.
03:02:45 <Betty> I dont think it its wrong
03:03:00 <ynpvisitor48> DaveM does not make mistakes
03:03:05 <Betty> Riverside for sure as I can tell
03:03:16 <Betty> true 48
03:04:51 <Betty> 1818 is totally in range for a triple interval, no need to doubt that
03:05:34 <Betty> 40° is pretty warm for that early
03:08:59 <ynpvisitor57> by the way teh person that said we should keep an eye on the area was DaveM
03:09:43 <ynpvisitor48> The Steamboat 4d 15h 49m is amazing!
03:09:48 <Betty> hahaha, you sure are allowed to suspect yourself, Dave :-D
03:10:02 <ynpvisitor48> :)
03:30:44 <Graham> morning. i wonder how meny peoples weekend plans changed with Steamboat going earlier than usual?
03:31:02 <Graham> i think kcmule is back home
03:31:09 <Betty> morning Graham
03:31:21 <Betty> yes, kc did not go
03:31:29 <ynpvisitor57> "usual" and Steamboat don't go together.
03:31:45 <Graham> i was texting with him while he was at a rest stop and Udo posted it
03:32:06 <Graham> maybe he will go a bit later
03:32:27 <Graham> and plan on the 7 day wait ... haha
03:32:55 <Graham> well hopefully its not that long
03:33:24 <Graham> longer water duration too
03:34:52 <Graham> i bet some people are glad they are not sitting in the rain this morning
03:36:00 <Graham> 13 week wait for me, wow thats a long time
03:36:49 <Betty> so it must be 14 for me, sigh
03:43:08 <Graham> where else are you going in the US Betty?
03:45:10 <Betty> most of the time in ynp, then on the way back to LV with stops at Craters of the moon, Great Basin NTL park and Zion
03:45:53 <Graham> nice places. Zion is my favorite canyon park
03:45:54 <Betty> we only have 2 1/2 weeks
03:47:14 <Graham> good time to be touring the parks
03:48:09 <Betty> we have a night in Springdale, so I hope to get to the Narrows, depending on weather forecast
03:52:16 <Graham> at least walk the paved trail to its end. never know what the weather is doing but it is a wonderful hike, hard on the ancles tho
03:53:00 <Graham> there are a lot of good hikes in the valley too
03:53:44 <Betty> we did it 2007, and we just want a bit of the walk in the river. I think we won´t make it to the Narrows anyway
03:54:00 <Graham> i have hiked Narrows twice, once up to Ordeville canyon (sp?) and another time up to big spring when the canyon starts to open out. both great but strenuous hikes as its through deep bwater
03:55:03 <Graham> theres always Angels Landing which is uphill strenuous and not good for people with fear of heights
03:55:21 <Graham> and lots of other good stops on the bus ride
03:55:42 <Betty> if weather is not that nice, we just go to the Emerald Pools. I´m not good in doing strenuous hikes anymore. I like easy and moderate hikes
03:55:55 <Graham> good to see they are getting some rain in CO, hopefully the thunderstorms dont set off new fires and douse the others
03:56:16 <Graham> and the weeping wall
03:56:38 <Betty> we will see what is possible
03:57:06 <Graham> and relax with an ice cream or coctail at the lodge, so pretty there. i have stayed in the cabins, nice to wake up there
03:57:36 <Betty> yeah, the ice cream was great
04:03:27 <Betty> OF
04:38:28 <ynpvisitor27> Snow Canyon State Park in Ivans is also good Betty.
04:41:11 <ynpvisitor27> Also Cedar Breaks.
04:41:34 <Betty> wow, that looks great, thx 27. I will keep it in mind
04:41:53 <Betty> I was at Cedar breaks before
04:42:55 <ynpvisitor27> And in Zion do the Canyon overlook trail just past the tunnel. Easy hike and a great view.
04:43:54 <ynpvisitor27> Have you been to Bryce?
04:44:19 <Betty> sure, several times. I love Bryce
04:44:42 <Betty> second in ranking after ellowstone
04:44:50 <Betty> Y*
04:45:59 <ynpvisitor27> I like the Navajo loop trail.
04:46:21 <Betty> Peek-a-boo is great too
04:46:41 <ynpvisitor27> Yes it is.
04:47:52 <Betty> first hike on it was a jaw dropping one :-)
04:48:36 <ynpvisitor27> Have you been to Valley of Fire near Vegas?
04:48:47 <Betty> yup
04:51:40 <Betty> I think I did a lot in Western US
04:53:10 <ynpvisitor27> If you are into live theater there is an outdoor theater just outside St George set in the red rocks.
04:56:08 <ynpvisitor27>
05:04:54 <ynpvisitor45> daisy
05:05:36 <Betty> finally Daisy
05:15:16 <Betty> gtg, bbl
05:34:40 <ynpvisitor5> OF
05:35:08 <ynpvisitor38> no
05:35:36 <Graham> not many people out there or at W gate
05:35:50 <ynpvisitor38> maybe the weather
05:36:10 <Graham> yep
05:36:20 <Graham> headed out ... bbl
05:36:26 <ynpvisitor38> bye
05:36:40 <ynpvisitor5> bye
05:47:07 <ynpvisitor45> of 0746
05:49:03 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
05:49:31 <ynpvisitor5> morning
05:49:50 <ynpvisitor45> long
05:50:46 <ynpvisitor5> 45 You read my mind. Was going to ask if this was considered long.
06:11:22 <ynpvisitor45> spasmodic appears very active this am
06:34:10 <ynpvisitor65> Grand
07:05:44 <ynpvisitor45> is that f&m again
07:06:17 <ynpvisitor45> gone now
07:06:57 <ynpvisitor999®> the area you're pointing it seems to be steam originating from the Grotto-Giant area
07:07:15 <ynpvisitor999®> it -> at
07:07:41 <ynpvisitor999®> though I'd take F&M at any time, though :)
07:09:56 <ynpvisitor46> might be Artemesia.
07:10:22 <ynpvisitor46> and it might be F&M
07:11:47 <ynpvisitor65> they just posted Grotto so must be windblown
07:12:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Yesterday @ 1624 I saw what seemed to be jets originating from the Daisy area. Now that the 4x daytime captures have been uploaded, does anyone else also see jets or just steam in a jet-like formation?
07:13:05 <ynpvisitor999®> welp, that was large OF preplay
07:24:26 <ynpvisitor999®> OF 0923, this time for real
07:26:07 <Kevin L™> West Gate backed up again
07:30:10 <Eric> Morning
07:30:22 <Kevin L™> Hi
07:30:24 <Eric> Still very confused about that tantalus creek gauge....
07:30:56 <Kevin L™> Glad we had confirmation.
07:31:27 <Eric> Yep...but the water gauge spike prior to the eruption was bigger than the actual eruption!
07:31:42 <Eric> I am curious if anyone was there before noon?
07:33:00 <ynpvisitor65> I was told the noon thing was heavy rain because both sides are sloped
07:33:38 <ynpvisitor65> the eruption is near vertical
07:33:52 <Kevin L™> I am sure the rain filled the creek where the eruption didn't have as much of an effect.
07:35:19 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, there didn't seem to be a Daisy @ 1220 yesterday
07:35:37 <ynpvisitor999®> there did seem to be something jetting in that area, but definitely no full eruption
07:36:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Same goes for 1624 - something jetting, but doesn't seem to be Daisy
07:37:25 <ynpvisitor999®> (or it actually is Daisy, but then a 'false start' or a minor)
07:37:27 <ynpvisitor65> daisy probably erupted while the camera was on OF slightly eariler at 1158
07:41:50 <Eric> We have had tons of rains...none of them cause that kind of spike
07:42:13 <Eric> was it raining super hard yesterday?
07:42:42 <Eric> Rain that would make the runoff seem stronger than a steamboat eruption?
07:43:14 <Kevin L™> Yes it was. More than just one of those scattered showers. Rain at the basin, west, and north gates.
07:44:23 <Kevin L™> I would think that it would raise the creek. With a higher volume the SB runoff would not be as noticeable.
07:47:38 <Eric> No, you can see the steamboat eruption spike the gauge at 18:15, but the 1100 spike is even bigger.
07:47:59 <Eric> These are spikes, not runoff type pushes on the gauge
07:48:13 <Kevin L™> I think that is when that big storm came in.
07:48:16 <Eric> Huge volumes of water quickly, and then gone.
07:50:30 <Emily> hello
07:50:40 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Emily
07:50:59 <Emily> time for geysers to speed up my wait
07:53:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy could help speeding up the wait, if it wants to
07:53:53 <Emily> he, ive got time
07:55:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
07:56:12 <Emily> a geyser!
07:56:31 <Kevin L™> No doubt about this one!
07:58:16 <Eric> Yes, weird daisy behavior yesterday
07:58:43 <Emily> weird>
07:58:45 <Emily> ?
07:59:40 <ynpvisitor999®> whereabouts is Splendid located from this view?
07:59:56 <Emily> probably back and right
07:59:57 <Eric> Yes, the afternoon daisy at 16:24 I believe was super weak/minor or something else happened
08:00:48 <Eric> ohhh, I see...that could have just been steam
08:00:56 <Emily> splendid is located northwest of daisy DG
08:01:29 <Eric> I bet daisy went between 11:40 and noon when the camera was on the hill
08:02:41 <ynpvisitor999®> so from this view to the left of Daisy, Eric?
08:03:06 <Emily> I would say to the right
08:05:48 <Eric> Splendid would be to the left of daisy from the camera view...but not sure you could really discern it from this distance.
08:06:31 <Emily> ok
08:07:27 <Eric> it's 1.12 miles from the camera to daisy
08:08:13 <Eric> Actually, because our angle is perpendicular enough, you might be able to differentiate them.
08:08:19 <Michael> I'd love to find out. I think Splendid would erupt from more behind the trees, while Daisy is in a bit of a clearing from this angle.
08:08:42 <Emily> well, It could erupt soon :)
08:08:46 <Michael> We just need a dual eruption to gather some observations on it.
08:08:48 <Emily> daisy needs to shorten I think
08:09:07 <Eric> haha....yes, crank those daisy intervals down and get us a dual!
08:09:48 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone!
08:09:58 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
08:09:59 <Emily> good mornign dave
08:10:13 <Emily> how do you add superscript to a nickname?
08:10:13 <Michael> Hi Dave.
08:11:19 <ynpvisitor999®> that TM is a character that's always in superscript
08:11:41 <Eric> You just have to know the ctrl-key
08:11:42 <ynpvisitor999®> you can copy the TM and add it to your name
08:11:52 <Eric> or copy and paste from a site that is using that unicode
08:11:57 <af™> there we go
08:12:08 <Dave from B™> DG, have you ever looked at seismo to see if large Steamboat minors set it off?
08:12:10 <Eric> Nice :-D
08:12:28 <af™> its been 6 years since I started using this page
08:12:38 <Eric> woot!
08:12:39 <Michael> I'd be shocked if Steamboat minors show up on a seismogram.
08:12:47 <af™> time flies
08:13:00 <Eric> Well...honey do list calls :-(
08:13:07 <af™> There is discussion of north like having concusssive minors
08:13:51 <Eric> Did you try to sneak in the park yesterday Dave?
08:13:58 <Eric> Steamboat knows!
08:14:16 <Michael> OK. I guess that would give it a bit of a chance to register ground motion.
08:14:16 <Dave from B™> hahaha...Maureen beat you to that accusation yesterday!
08:14:21 <af™> well then dave needs to leave for YNP when I am in front of steamboat
08:14:41 <Dave from B™> I will see Steamboat #12
08:14:53 <Eric> or maybe 13
08:15:01 <Eric> maybe both!
08:15:12 <af™> I will be for 13
08:15:17 <Eric> gtg...enjoy the day!
08:15:35 <Michael> I seriously considered flying out to the Park for Sunday-Tuesday. Glad I didn't shell out for those tickets after all.
08:15:47 <Dave from B™> 1st annual Father's Day prediction......Giant tomorrow
08:15:50 <Dave from B™> see ya Eric
08:16:16 <Michael> See you Eric. Good luck crossing items off the list.
08:19:35 <ynpvisitor999®> I have not, Dave
08:19:40 <ynpvisitor999®> but I don't think so
08:20:17 <Dave from B™> Hi, kc. How far did you get?
08:22:38 <kcmule> not to fort collins, so it ended up being about a 3 hour friday night cruise. lot less than the 11 I was expecting
08:23:09 <af™> what did you do kc?
08:23:17 <Dave from B™> When is your next attempt?
08:23:34 <kcmule> aborted my trip when I got the news af
08:23:53 <kcmule> no idea, guess I'll go back to work on monday and see what cisctern does
08:24:00 <af™> oh
08:24:02 <af™> steamboat
08:25:02 <Emily> I hope the next trip is more fruitful. Ill be there from Ft collins soon too
08:25:10 <Graham> wb kc
08:25:32 <Graham> when do you arrive Emily?
08:26:01 <Emily> we'll see. But likely at 2.5 days past cistern refill
08:26:15 <Emily> week of the 4th
08:26:28 <Emily> try to make it in for a parking spot
08:27:02 <kcmule> thanks Graham, and ty again for the updates
08:28:23 <Graham> np, glad you didnt get there and "enjoy" the steam phase
08:28:44 <ynpvisitor999®> interesting... prior to that odd Daisy @ 1624 yesterday, there seemed to be a jet originating to the left of Daisy's spot - and I'm likely NOT thinking wishfully
08:28:54 <Emily> kc, coming from denver?
08:29:52 <Emily> hi sparekitty
08:30:04 <sparekitty> hey. how's everything?
08:30:17 <ynpvisitor999®> good, how are you?
08:30:21 <kcmule> yep Emily. i'm all packed for something now...
08:30:36 <sparekitty> all's well in socal today.
08:31:03 <sparekitty> looking forward to my trip to the park...i was supposed to go next week but work "asked" me to cancel...
08:31:09 <Emily> Next time you go, I'll pay for gas??
08:31:17 <sparekitty> i will be there the last week of july
08:31:28 <Graham> FYI we would have a clear view of Splendid if it erupts, it can be taller than Grand
08:31:32 <Dave from B™> Emily, kc drives a 50' motor home:)
08:32:48 <Emily> nice
08:33:22 <Graham> i want to see him cover that in the parking lot at Norris
08:33:40 <kcmule> haha funny guys
08:33:46 <Emily> Ill have my economy rental.
08:33:57 <Emily> no idea how to protect that
08:34:19 <kcmule> car covers are like 25 bucks at wally world
08:34:39 <Emily> i hope to need to use one
08:35:15 <Graham> you can return it if Steamboat doesnt erupt because it "didnt work properly"
08:35:18 <Dave from B™> There was a new FB post yesterday about how to get Steamboat off your car
08:35:35 <Emily> Wax i thought?
08:35:48 <Emily> Id use diluted muriatic acid
08:36:28 <Dave from B™> I'm going to park in the main road parking lot and bike in
08:36:57 <kcmule> no chance of trying for #11 Dave?
08:37:41 <Dave from B™> No, I need to get ahead at work for the 6 night trip to YNP
08:38:45 <Dave from B™> Next week, tourism really ramps up the seafood business thru August 25 or so
08:39:11 <Emily> Ill buy lots of fish so yiu can go :)
08:39:51 <kcmule> that sounds a lot better than this dam canned food I'm already tired of
08:40:12 <Graham> this is what Splendid can look like from a distance, near Oblong
08:40:29 <Dave from B™> Colorado is within our UPS 2 day delivery area
08:40:56 <Dave from B™> nice pic, Graham. Have you see Spendid?
08:41:02 <Dave from B™> seen*
08:41:54 <Graham> yep, that shot was from 1997, last time its been active
08:42:19 <Dave from B™> Nice....any detailed reports on yesterday's Steamboat yet
08:42:26 <Graham> so its big, and will show up vertically taller than Daisy. agree we might not see the base ... if it ever erupts
08:43:18 <Graham> another close-up shot
08:43:20 <Graham>
08:44:37 <Graham> heres another one I would love to see active again
08:45:05 <Graham> it was always fun driving past and looking for the line of gaers when it was active
08:45:16 <Emily> it did last octorber
08:45:36 <Graham> what did?
08:46:17 <Emily> echinus? if thats what I think it is
08:46:24 <Graham> nope
08:46:31 <Emily> oh
08:46:43 <Emily> no idea then
08:46:44 <Graham> it hasnt been active for years
08:46:55 <Emily> echinus>
08:46:57 <Emily> ?
08:47:03 <Graham> but looks very pretty ... i prefer it to be muddy brown
08:47:28 <Michael> Hmmmm. I'm still working on that geyser ID.
08:47:31 <Emily> black opal pool
08:47:33 <Graham> you have seen it as a pretty puul
08:47:41 <Graham> pool that is
08:47:52 <Graham> nope ... you can see it from the road
08:48:07 <Graham> or the boardwalk
08:48:07 <Michael> Silex?
08:48:14 <Graham> everyone takes a photo of it
08:48:16 <Emily> oh yes
08:48:19 <Dave from B™> has to be
08:48:20 <Emily> silex
08:48:25 <Graham> yes
08:48:48 <Graham> very entertaining eruption and refill cycle
08:49:19 <Graham> violent bursty refill with chance for minors (no water overflow) and majors
08:49:39 <Graham> with a nice whirlpool when it drained
08:50:23 <Graham> watch for the empty hole as you drive by .. or hope to see an empty hole
08:50:32 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
08:51:20 <Graham> GT has it active 2001 and 2002, with a lone report in 2005
08:51:27 <Michael> Those were some great pictures, Graham.
08:53:11 <Graham> thanks. would be good to have them come back to life
08:57:00 <Dave from B™> Hi, lc
08:57:20 <ynpvisitor999®> morning lc
08:57:28 <Graham> when do you arrive lc?
08:57:58 <lc> Graham I saw Splendid 4 or 5 time, none as big as your picture.
08:58:09 <lc> hey everyone.
08:58:23 <lc> June 26
08:58:30 <Graham> yeah that was a large one, glad i was at Oblong to get the perspective
08:59:03 <Graham> good luck with seeing STeamboat ... whatever it does next
08:59:31 <lc> thanks
09:00:05 <lc> yesterday changed predictions a bit.
09:00:25 <ynpvisitor999®> for now I'm not going try to predict it
09:00:35 <Graham> hopefully it keeps going and has its active surges followed by lulls when people can take a bathroom break safely
09:01:03 <lc> would like to see the 2.5 days after Cistern refill.
09:01:18 <Emily> see yall later
09:01:21 <ynpvisitor999®> mostly because I want to know if this is a one-off interval or a rapid shortening of intervals
09:01:27 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Emily
09:01:35 <Michael> bye Emily.
09:01:52 <Graham> so we have 32 and 37m durations on the water phase on GT
09:02:05 <lc> don't think I can handle all-nighters
09:02:34 <Graham> i lucked out when i went in one night ... it waited for me
09:02:38 <lc> not sure I can do all-dayers
09:02:50 <Dave from B™> I'm feeling an under 7 day interval again
09:02:53 <ynpvisitor999®> 37m is probably one of the longest recorded durations for Steamboat ever
09:02:57 <Graham> haha yeah, if the sun is out its a pace to bake
09:03:15 <Graham> place
09:03:32 <lc> I am really glad so many gazers have got it.
09:03:36 <Graham> i grabbed an extra gallon of water at the store and took that to the platform
09:03:55 <Graham> should be several there to tell you whats going on.
09:04:13 <Graham> while we sit here and do the backseat quarterbacking
09:04:14 <lc> not a bad idea, even if it is warm its still wet.
09:04:17 <Dave from B™> lc, what are you going to do about your car?
09:04:48 <Graham> it wasnt too hot when i was there but it could be soon
09:04:54 <lc> not sure, thinking about just a tarp from walmart
09:06:39 <ynpvisitor22> but Lc, if I am there you can ride in my car
09:07:28 <Michael> OF ie static
09:07:44 <lc> Ma said she is staying in UGB to see Grand and BH.
09:08:25 <lc> sounds like a winner 22.
09:08:53 <lc> not that Ma would be driving anywhere.
09:10:32 <ynpvisitor999®> R'side
09:35:29 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
09:35:39 <kcmule> thanks for the texts Betty, glad to have u as fail-safe plan
09:36:41 <Betty> evening DG, morning kc, glad that worked :-)
09:37:42 <Betty> I will send you my phone number, so it is no one way road ;-)
09:40:06 <kcmule> ok thanks. hope some day I won't have to dread seeing a txt or call from you lol
09:40:18 <ynpvisitor999®> NPS has an optimistic Daisy prediction
09:49:40 <Betty> hehe
09:51:08 <Betty> it does not work properly on my mobile device, so maybe it does not work with it.
09:52:05 <Betty> maybe you can try to send something
09:52:33 <ynpvisitor23> I am glad a few people are at Beehive. I was starting to worry.
09:53:50 <Kent> Good Morning/afternoon/evening fellow cyber thermalists
09:54:07 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Kent
09:54:14 <Betty> hi Kent
09:54:23 <kcmule> on the way Betty, hi Kent
09:54:34 <Kent> I am ready for Beehive!
09:56:32 <Dave from B™> Morning Kent, cyber thermalists sounds better than armchair gazers
09:57:45 <Kent> I am all for anyone who likes hot water
09:58:45 <Betty> text is here
09:58:46 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great day everyone! Go, Giant!
09:58:59 <Betty> see ya Dave
09:59:24 <kcmule> later Dave. ok Betty think we're set
10:00:04 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Dave
10:00:06 <Kent> Fluffy, Faisy and Beehive may play in concert
10:02:38 <ynpvisitor999®> might be Grotto starting there
10:03:35 <Betty> kc, can you tell me if you got my 2nd message?
10:04:51 <kcmule> yep not sure how my plan works for int'l texts either
10:05:14 <Betty> so you got it?
10:05:53 <kcmule> got it
10:06:07 <Betty> ok, thx
10:16:07 <Kevin L™> Gee I thought BH would have gone while I was training.
10:17:07 <ynpvisitor28> Dumb question: When you say "training," does that mean work on actual trains?
10:17:10 <Betty> no, we had 5 Aurums, but no BH
10:18:32 <Kevin L™> There is an interesting State Park in Nevada you would like Betty. It may be an fun side trip for you
10:19:16 <Betty> speaking of Rainbow Canyon?
10:20:33 <Kevin L™> No, but they have the road fixed and Rainbow would be along the way. Cathedral Gorge:
10:23:54 <Betty> looks interesting
10:24:10 <Kevin L™> If you are headed north through Utah you could take US 93 north. The park is just north of SR 319 (which turns into Utah 56).
10:25:22 <Betty> a bit off my usual way, but I´ll keep it in mind
10:26:11 <Kevin L™> Take SR319/Utah 56 to Cedar and you are back on I-15. Rainbow Canyon is along SR 317 and takes off from Caliente. Take that to Elgin and turn around. Fun place and you may run across some interesting wildlife there.
10:26:22 <Graham> betty is hoping shes speeding to Steamboat instead
10:26:41 <Betty> yeah :-)
10:27:23 <Kevin L™> It can be done on the way back too.
10:28:45 <Graham> after Steamboat, Giant, and F&M
10:29:00 <Kevin L™> You could even drive over to Rachel and see Area 51!
10:29:56 <Betty> would be amazing if you are correct, Graham
10:34:31 <Betty> too funny, if you want to do a streetview on google maps in Rachel, the yellow figure changes to a flying saucer :-D
10:34:41 <Betty> OF
10:37:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Rocket major already after just over 30m of Grotto?
10:38:15 <Graham> watch for Giant :)
10:41:41 <Kevin L™> That is funny Betty
10:46:00 <Betty> Daisy
10:46:02 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
10:46:07 <Kevin L™> Faisy
10:55:28 <ynpvisitor999®> it's 0835 over at Kilauea, and the cam is yet to switch to color mode
10:56:49 <ynpvisitor28> Maybe the entire island has gone black-and-white.
10:58:27 <Kevin L™> USGS now has a live streaming cam but it isn't nearly as good as the Rusty cam.
11:21:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Hopefully this wakes up Bee
11:22:23 <ynpvisitor999®> PS: Lion seems ready to go too
11:22:38 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
11:23:54 <Betty> LC
11:27:44 <ynpvisitor79> You all need help. So...
11:27:50 <ynpvisitor79> Time for BH.
11:48:54 <ynpvisitor79> I have seen the wagon before, the must rent them.
11:50:21 <Betty> LC ie
11:51:06 <ynpvisitor79> Good, we will have a Lion some time today.
11:52:29 <ynpvisitor999®> It didn't help? Oh well. Guess next time better
11:54:51 <Kevin L™> Here is another item you may be interested in Betty:
11:58:05 <Betty> another good idea
11:58:52 <Kevin L™> Have you done Lehman Caves?
11:59:36 <Betty> We will do on this years trip
11:59:45 <Betty>
11:59:54 <Betty> live from ISS
12:00:28 <ynpvisitor79> This is close to the park.
12:01:55 <Kevin L™> If you do go to Lehman Caves Betty, you will probably take US 93 so that will take you by Rainbow Canyon and Cathedral Gorge too.
12:02:40 <Kevin L™> Kilauea is color now.
12:02:55 <Betty> we go from Lehman cave to Springdale
12:04:26 <Kevin L™> You could do that by going down US93 to SR319 like in my earlier post. Then from Cedar to Toquerville and to Springdale.
12:04:35 <ynpvisitor79> Look at all those people, must be time for BH!
12:04:53 <Betty> new BW is open
12:12:18 <Graham> OF
12:12:23 <Betty> OF
12:26:34 <Kent> Beehive obviously does not pay attention to Geyser Times or is going to cut the window very close :)
12:27:47 <ynpvisitor79> Geysers are like Cats. They do what they want. If they were like Dogs, they would want to please us.
12:27:50 <Kevin L™> Gand or BH first?
12:28:03 <ynpvisitor79> Giant
12:29:48 <ynpvisitor79> BH may wait till you go out and see if your chicken is done yet.
12:30:01 <ynpvisitor79> Lion
12:30:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
12:30:07 <ynpvisitor79> Maybe
12:30:22 <Kevin L™> Get jumper cables
12:30:28 <ynpvisitor79> Lion's indy is working today.
12:30:30 <Betty> yay
12:31:05 <ynpvisitor79> Looked like we may have a turban.
12:31:12 <Betty> yep
12:31:32 <Betty> beautiful Lion
12:32:08 <ynpvisitor79> Or would it be Majestic?
12:32:22 <Betty> fits too
12:34:02 <ynpvisitor79> From here, it looks like indy is building a bit of a dome
12:34:55 <Kevin L™> NO!!! The Super Indy is going to blow!!!
12:38:53 <Graham> nothing to see here, move along
12:40:17 <Betty> looks nice
12:40:37 <Graham> looks like they still need benches
12:41:34 <Betty> LC ie
12:45:45 <Betty> the crowd is moving towards Grand
12:46:13 <Kevin L™> That should trigger BH
12:46:34 <Betty> nice boils at Spasmodic
12:53:35 <Graham> turban
12:54:31 <ynpvisitor45> nice, turn your bach on BH and induce an eruption :)
12:55:39 <ynpvisitor45> nope, wrong again, foiled by the mighty Bee
12:55:59 <Graham> itdoesnt like me
12:57:24 <ynpvisitor79> I think this is the cam op today. Not much going on.

12:59:11 <Graham> but i am drinking and driving ..i have a nice IPA
12:59:36 <Betty> :-)
12:59:38 <ynpvisitor79> Yuck.
13:00:06 <ynpvisitor79> Terrible way to treat barley juice.
13:00:38 <Graham> haha ...... better than the green water the bird had
13:04:54 <ynpvisitor79>
13:06:59 <ynpvisitor79> Lion's indy again
13:07:33 <ynpvisitor79> Well, BH out lasted me. Enjoy the Lions and Bees.
13:08:36 <Graham> LC

13:37:14 <Graham> wb Kitt
13:37:45 <Graham> so we could have a grand BH dual
13:40:53 <Kitt> looks like we could have a Beehive, Grand, Castle, Old Faithful Quad
13:42:26 <Kitt> Yay Bee first
13:42:28 <ynpvisitor45> Beeeeeeeeee
13:42:36 <Kitt> :bee::bee::bee::bee:
13:42:49 <Kitt> it is shower time
13:42:57 <Graham> stressful time for the cam op
13:43:08 <Kevin L™> yep
13:43:15 <ynpvisitor999®> apparantly updating my laptop helped
13:43:18 <Kitt> why?
13:43:33 <Graham> where to look first?
13:43:47 <Kitt> cam op could always back up to catch Grand, Bee, and fluffy
13:44:28 <Kevin L™> No matter what you do someone will be unhappy
13:44:32 <ynpvisitor45> and Castl :)
13:45:10 <Kevin L™> bh of preset does give a good bee
13:45:51 <Kitt> Lion
13:45:55 <Kitt> is ie also
13:46:02 <Kitt> and Plate
13:46:04 <ynpvisitor999®> Plate ie
13:46:14 <Betty> yay Plate
13:46:28 <Kitt> Ok , so we get Bee, Lion, and Plate
13:47:35 <Kitt> hm, Lion is already gone
13:48:03 <Kevin L™> Short kitty
13:48:04 <ynpvisitor999®> apparently it started @ 1542
13:48:30 <Kitt> I see Chris G got it earlier
13:49:35 <Kitt> She didn't post Plate
13:49:45 <Kitt> well back to the sprinklers
13:50:04 <Kitt> enjoy fluffy, Grand, and Castle
13:50:20 <Graham> we will, thanks Kitt
13:50:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
13:50:40 <Kevin L™> Bye Kitt
13:50:58 <Kevin L™> grand
13:51:27 <Kevin L™> Not the dual we wanted
13:51:47 <Kevin L™> At least we will see the end
13:52:17 <Graham> people cah get there for the second burst
13:53:37 <Kevin L™> Not a basin friendly series of eruptions.
13:53:57 <Graham> cam op nap time coming up
13:54:11 <ynpvisitor999®> we have Castle in the window too
13:54:55 <Kevin L™> I need to move some tomatoes and turn a pen so I am ready. Football in an hour! Go Stampeders!
13:55:34 <Graham> are they the Vegas CFL team?
13:56:30 <Kevin L™> We had one called the Posse but it just didn't work out. This is the Calgary team. My kid lived right near the stadium.
13:57:14 <Kevin L™> Last night was a funny game. It was tied 1-1 in the first quarter.
13:57:41 <Graham> how does that happen?
13:58:56 <Kevin L™> In CFL they have an end zone you could build a small city in. Any kick except a successful field goal that does not make it out of the end zone results in a point for the kicking team.
14:00:01 <Kevin L™> You can kneel and get it at the 20, but the kicking team gets a point. I really like that rule.
14:00:23 <Graham> thats a good rule
14:00:58 <Graham> so much for the second burst
14:01:12 <Kevin L™> Also it is like basketball when it goes out of bounds. Last team to touch it gets it.
14:01:58 <Kevin L™> It is on ESPN2. If you don't try to compare it to the nfl it is a lot of fun.
14:02:24 <Kevin L™> stream frooze
14:02:39 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle ie
14:02:51 <Kevin L™> Now it is back
14:03:18 <Betty> my nap time is here too. night all
14:03:30 <Kevin L™> Busy 20m. May want to keep an eye on Giant.
14:03:55 <Kevin L™> Heading to the depot
14:04:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle started @ 1559, by the way
14:05:01 <ynpvisitor999®> T1Q | 10m45s
14:07:39 <Graham> stepping away for a few minutes
14:18:34 <Graham> guess we didnt miss Giant
14:43:02 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
14:50:48 <Graham> missed Aurum
14:50:49 <Kevin L™> I think monsoon season is coming. Temps down about 10° but humidity up from 4% - 12% to 24% - 40%. Glad I don't have to depend on swamps anymore!
14:51:47 <Kevin L™> I was gone. You should have know it would erupt.
14:52:39 <Graham> nice Kevin. our humidity is down to 37%, lovely day
14:53:25 <Graham> supposed to have dew points rising into the 70s in the next few days
14:54:02 <Kevin L™> Anything above 10% here is bad and in July/August it can be brutal
14:55:23 <Graham> dew point is only 56 now
14:56:20 <Kevin L™> 55 here now
14:56:33 <Graham> wiw lion started and quit before i could post it
14:58:01 <Graham> that is high for you. at least its bringing rain to CO where its needed ... as long as lightning doesnt start more fires
14:59:18 <Graham> a lot of people for an afternoon OF coming up in a while - delayed crowd due to morning rain?
15:00:46 <Kevin L™> They brought out a guy to sing the National Anthem for the truck race that looked like he could have been a member of a street gang. Gave one of the most beautiful renditions I have ever heard.
15:03:29 <Graham> great when that happens
15:05:00 <Kevin L™> Yes it is. I have the race on TV and the football game on iPad. Thursday they had an 11 year old girl do Oh Canada that was awesome. Could not believe that voice coming out of such a little girl!
15:08:18 <Graham> lc
15:10:04 <Kevin L™> I hate it when there is nothing you care about on all day and then in the evening two things you want to watch are on at the same time.
15:22:21 <ynpvisitor71> OF
15:23:12 <Kevin L™> Nice background for it.
15:23:48 <ynpvisitor71> Dramatic
15:24:11 <Graham> time to get back to the car quickly
15:24:28 <Kevin L™> Amazing how different it is from static.
15:26:30 <Graham> toime for another nap
15:29:33 <Kevin L™> My kid just crashed his car in practice.
15:30:13 <Graham> does he need a different profession?
15:30:53 <Kevin L™> Lucky for him this is a hobby. Did I send you the video?
15:32:55 <Graham> i saw the race
15:33:58 <Kevin L™> This was from his on car camera.
15:34:39 <Graham> no
15:35:27 <Kevin L™> Let me dig it up. Hope he had it on for the crash. Not sure if he will race tonight.
15:39:05 <ynpvisitor68> Did you teach your son how to drive?:)
15:44:25 <ynpvisitor68> I didn’t think they had rocks on speedways
15:45:47 <Kevin L™> He drives a car with two tires on the front and steel skid plates on the rear.
15:53:08 <Kevin L™> Faisy
15:57:21 <Graham> no Ftn reports today
16:14:31 <ynpvisitor71ynp> Has cistern drained yet?
16:16:04 <Graham> no reports since the one that said it was 16 to 18" down this afternoon
16:16:19 <Graham> i expect there will be a later report
16:16:26 <Graham> or tomorrow morning
16:16:39 <Graham> nice its clearing up now
16:17:15 <Kevin L™> Supposed to be ugly the start of next week.
16:19:03 <ynpvisitor71ynp> Remember Dave says Giant tomorrow
16:19:44 <Kevin L™> Over 2" of rain predicted between now and Wednesday.
16:21:16 <ynpvisitor71ynp> Ouch
16:21:45 <ynpvisitor71ynp> Summer in the Rockies
16:21:47 <Graham> vegas or ynp?
16:22:05 <Kevin L™> YNP
16:22:24 <ynpvisitor71ynp> That’s 2 years worth for Vegas
16:23:24 <Graham> monsoon isnt what it used to be
16:24:05 <Kevin L™> Some of those monsoons could be ugly
16:46:59 <Craig> Settled into the place we're staying in outside of ennis
16:48:40 <Craig> Should be able to get into the park a couple times
16:49:17 <Kevin L™> Just nice to be parked I bet
16:52:56 <Kevin L™> Nice lighting on OF
17:08:33 <Craig> Indeed it is Kevin
17:22:11 <Craig> plate?
17:22:38 <Graham> no
17:38:48 <Graham> goodnight
19:52:00 <ynpvisitor73> Depression
20:01:08 <ynpvisitor73> OF ie.
20:25:20 <ynpvisitor73> Grand
20:26:05 <Kevin L™> Somebody is out there.
