04:07:43 <Dave from of> Good morning everyone
04:07:57 <ynpvisitor33> Morning Dave
04:08:31 <Dave from of> Just crossing the bridge
04:09:05 <ynpvisitor33> It is waiting for you
04:11:03 <Dave from of> It seems giant didn’t go last night
04:11:16 <ynpvisitor33> nope

05:12:39 <ynpvisitor107> Missed it by a mile :(:thumbsdown::thumbsdown:
05:32:23 <Kevin Rexburg> Sleep is overrated
05:33:14 <ynpvisitor33> Your not rested yet?
05:33:51 <Kevin Rexburg> I am still pretty worn out.
05:34:53 <ynpvisitor33> Give it a week you will begin to feel better :)
05:35:26 <ynpvisitor33> My last nearly killed me
05:35:38 <ynpvisitor33> last trip
05:37:46 <ynpvisitor...> OF 0737 wc
05:38:18 <ynpvisitor...> When you headed back to the heat Kevin
05:41:16 <Kevin Rexburg> This internet just doesn't like my iPad.
05:42:14 <Kevin Rexburg> Staying here tonight, Cedar tomorrow and home Sunday.
05:56:13 <ynpvisitor...> I am headed up Sunday afternoon via Jackson. Exhibit at the NMWA that has been recommended. Only for three nights.
06:00:06 <ynpvisitor33> via 25, 80,191 ?
06:03:09 <Kevin Rexburg> That sounds fun
06:08:03 <ynpvisitor33> DAISY
06:09:16 <Kevin Rexburg> I get to see a Geyser!
06:09:34 <J. Tellurium> Looks like a cool-weather morning
06:11:43 <Kevin Rexburg> My brother said it was pouring rain.
06:13:08 <ynpvisitor33> yep west entrance is wet
06:16:15 <J. Tellurium> Right on the edge of the park boundaries
06:17:14 <ynpvisitor...> I will head up 15 then across via Lava Hot Springs. Never been that way before.
06:23:45 <ynpvisitor43> You left before your brother Kevin?
06:27:59 <Kevin Rexburg> I left a day before he did.
06:28:46 <ynpvisitor43> Did you make it to Great Fountain?
06:29:35 <Kevin Rexburg> I think he wishes he came with me. Says that the rain between West and Ashton is so hard they can barely see.
06:30:34 <Kevin Rexburg> We went by Great Fountain but it was no where near overflow.
06:31:41 <ynpvisitor43> Too bad. It has been having some amazing eruptions
06:33:11 <ynpvisitor43> I hope you enjoyed your trip.
06:33:34 <ynpvisitor43> Did you see Artemisia when you went out there?
06:36:10 <ynpvisitor43> They are going to build a fence in front of it soon.
06:43:31 <Eric> a fence!
06:43:41 <Eric> Yikes...that would suck
06:43:45 <Eric> and good morning
06:44:34 <ynpvisitor56> fence like at Black Sand Pool probably?
06:45:19 <Eric> has anyone ever been hurt up there?
06:50:44 <ynpvisitor42> Asian people taking selfies can fall down the wall, Eric
07:08:03 <Jake> any source on a fence at Artemisia?
07:08:18 <Jake> the only injuries I know of there are to Artemisia: rocks thrown or kicked in
07:08:32 <Eric> We need to build a wall!
07:08:53 <Eric> Source #43 :-P
07:08:55 <Jake> I would think they'd have to deck/boardwalk it because the ground there might not take posts
07:09:10 <Jake> even though the ground is all man made fill
07:09:46 <Jake> it wouldn't stop rocks and gravel from being kicked in with just a fence unless there's serious revegetation effort
07:10:38 <Eric> They could remove the road bed...but that would probably cause all kinds of issues.
07:11:06 <Jake> I would vote for road bed removal
07:11:17 <ynpvisitor42> man, that is really dark
07:12:10 <Eric> Apparently a storm just blasted the west side of the park...looks like it's heading inward.
07:12:39 <ynpvisitor42> could become ugly soon
07:13:11 <ynpvisitor42> OF must look great in front of that
07:13:53 <J. Tellurium> It looks heavy but not severe - hopefully not too much lightning!
07:14:13 <ynpvisitor42> shhh, don´t use that word
07:15:37 <Jake> the safest place in the UGB is on top of Split Cone because lightning never strikes the same place twice
07:16:42 <ynpvisitor42> true :-)
07:18:15 <ynpvisitor42> Lion
07:18:15 <ynpvisitor55> Lion
07:19:13 <Jake> initial? doesn't look like one
07:19:23 <Jake> I missed the start
07:19:43 <Jake> awesome photograph out there with black sky behind it
07:20:42 <ynpvisitor42> yes, ini
07:21:54 <J. Tellurium> Checked the strike map, looks pretty good for YNP
07:22:51 <Eric> OF
07:23:33 <Jake> link to strike map?
07:30:19 <ynpvisitor33> lightning https://www.lightningmaps.org/blitzortung/america/index.php?lang=en
07:31:49 <ynpvisitor33> there it is Jake
07:37:37 <J. Tellurium> Yeah, no electrical activity with this rain. Big storm coming ashore in the upper peninsula of Michigan has some.
07:38:50 <J. Tellurium> Lightning capital of the U.S., the Tampa Bay area (where I went to grad school) is also seeing strikes right now.
07:42:20 <Jake> thanks
07:42:27 <Jake> that is cool
07:44:46 <J. Tellurium> The world of the Internet continues to impress me
07:46:00 <Jake> I've been more depressed than impressed lately so it's good to see the cool stuff

08:37:03 <Jake> Lion
08:41:23 <Jake> Split Cone ie ?, very steamy
08:43:37 <Jake> very steamy isn't enough on a day like today
08:44:15 <Jake> Split Cone
08:45:13 <Eric> Good Catch
08:45:21 <Eric> SC has been pretty active this week
08:46:57 <Jake> when OF falls dormant, Split Cone can finally achieve its true potential & glory!
08:49:31 <J. Tellurium> I'm stunned Ansel Adams never took a photograph of Split Cone
08:50:52 <Jake> he probably kept it for himself, highly valuable
08:52:52 <Eric> Ansel Adams...not OF https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/85/Ansel_Adams_-_National_Archives_79-AA-T17.jpg
08:53:26 <Jake> that's a good "name that feature"!
08:53:49 <Eric> To bad he didn't have a gazer for a guide...could have been incredible
08:53:55 <J. Tellurium> Adams shot Castle too, I thinnk
08:54:02 <J. Tellurium> *think*
08:54:09 <Eric> Yes, it kinda sucks IMHO
08:55:02 <Eric> I assume that one I linked is LGB, one of the pools there
08:58:09 <Jake> it is LGB and you know the name of the pool(s)
09:02:13 <Eric> Ok...this picture is incredible! I had no idea that land was filled in front of the Inn: https://www.ppie100.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/aad-7608.jpg
09:06:06 <Jake> I haven't seen that picture before. that was back when they used to let visitors into the underground water chambers (empty)
09:06:33 <Eric> Yes, was about to ask about that "tunnel" entrance.
09:06:48 <Eric> Are those water chambers still accessible?
09:07:30 <Jake> oh, I thought you were joking. that's a replica of the Inn for an exposition
09:07:47 <Jake> http://www.ppie100.org/parks-and-the-ppie/
09:08:14 <Jake> at first I thought it was some sort of photoshop trick
09:10:20 <Eric> haha....that makes sense :-P
09:10:50 <Jake> the write up sounds like it was an impressive replica!
09:11:29 <Eric> Yes, we use to build amazing things for these expositions
09:12:59 <Eric> I originally saw this other image...so I thought it was something I had never seen: http://geyserbob.org/attachments/Image/hot-ofi-ppie_uprr2.jpg
09:18:50 <Eric> Sorry for any confusion...but interesting to know there was such an awesome replica of the INN at an exhibition :-D
09:26:09 <ynpvisitor33> mustbe no one down basin, there are turbans and gotto and others but no reports
09:27:23 <ynpvisitor28> Artemisia steam cloud. Looks like Grotto.
09:27:49 <Jake> don't get to see that every day!
09:27:58 <Jake> Daisy
09:28:16 <ynpvisitor33> Daisy
09:33:32 <ynpvisitor33> I wonder if that is a GHP
09:33:48 <ynpvisitor33> gone

10:19:36 <ynpvisitor33> Riverside
10:21:23 <Eric> Strange lack of Giant details today
10:22:37 <ynpvisitor33> Plenty of gazers back there, must be cold, wet and tired
10:26:33 <ynpvisitor33> Steamboat may be doing something, or heavy rain
10:28:43 <ynpvisitor33> temp up, tantalus discharge up
10:29:41 <ynpvisitor77> Weather report says cance of heavy rain & thunderstorms.
10:29:47 <Eric> steamboat data is back
10:29:58 <ynpvisitor33> seismo increase
10:30:21 <Eric> tantalus takes about 1h20m to show eruption
10:31:17 <Eric> Also, real time logger is now active and shows nothing
10:33:38 <ynpvisitor28> Riverside
10:33:53 <ynpvisitor28> Oh. about 15 minutes too late with that call
10:37:45 <ynpvisitor107> Kevin is on a long vacation, hope his chickens will not be well done when he gets back home.
10:49:56 <Betty> hi all
10:50:12 <Betty> SC ie
10:51:10 <ynpvisitor71> Jimbo - https://www.sciencefridaystore.com/products/science-friday-periodic-wall-clock
10:52:53 <Eric> Nice
10:53:51 <Eric> Seems reasonable to see a grand about now!
10:54:12 <J. Tellurium> Cute - would complement my Periodic Table tie
10:54:21 <ynpvisitor71> Doesn't show Upsidaisium so I won't be buying one :(
10:54:58 <ynpvisitor28> The dial on the military clock would get a bit cluttered with info.
10:55:01 <ynpvisitor33> Grand
10:55:17 <ynpvisitor28> It was just waiting for some sunlight.
10:55:24 <Eric> I like it :-D
10:57:33 <ynpvisitor71> I think we have a better view than people on the boardwalk.
10:57:48 <ynpvisitor33> Grand does not have to share it's time slot today
10:59:59 <J. Tellurium> Not very windy today, is it?
11:04:14 <J. Tellurium> 8 minutes or so
11:06:21 <ynpvisitor33> 12min
11:06:41 <J. Tellurium> Still 1b
11:08:52 <J. Tellurium> Don't think a 2nd will happen - curious if that was an extra long single
11:29:08 <ynpvisitor57> Grand was a 1b
11:30:50 <ynpvisitor57> 12 to 13m per Dave
11:31:27 <Betty> thx, 57
11:31:59 <J. Tellurium> thought so
11:32:36 <J. Tellurium> even if there wasn't an encore it was a good show
12:02:12 <Betty> time for Giant
12:02:23 <ynpvisitor28> Hear hear!
12:02:45 <ynpvisitor33> Let it begin!
12:02:55 <Betty> :-)
12:03:30 <ynpvisitor102> Isn't it *always* time for Giant?
12:04:07 <ynpvisitor102> except night I guess. :)
12:04:18 <ynpvisitor31> Last two Giant eruptions were at 1313 then 1414. So it’s waiting for 1515!
12:04:30 <Betty> haha
12:09:46 <ynpvisitor28> I'll set my timer to check back here in an hour, then.
12:10:12 <Betty> OF
12:19:46 <Kevin Rexburg> Dave is in the cage
12:20:11 <ynpvisitor000> I hope he is keeping his eye on Daisy
12:20:59 <ynpvisitor33> Ready for the 1515 Giant
12:23:36 <Kevin Rexburg> Internet here hates the of stream
12:25:52 <ynpvisitor63> Comcast had a line cut that impacted their system nationwide. It may had ripple effects elsewhere.
12:26:47 <Kevin Rexburg> It runs here for about 10s then freezes
12:27:31 <Kevin Rexburg> I think this is Century Link.
12:28:28 <Betty> Daisy
12:28:34 <Kevin Rexburg> Maltese Falcon is coming across on TV fine.
12:41:40 <Kevin Rexburg> It dumped me again
12:52:46 <Betty> SC
13:21:30 <Betty> Castle ie
13:25:28 <Kevin Rexburg> Got me again.
13:25:42 <Betty> :-)
14:34:44 <Kevin Rexburg> Wow, streaming is working!
14:36:22 <Kevin Rexburg> Now if Aurum would erupt.
15:07:12 <ynpvisitor28> Lots of Bijou pause observations in. Giant sure didn't reward people out in the rain today.
15:09:40 <Kevin Rexburg> Dave is all wet
15:33:18 <ynpvisitor84> :daisy:
15:34:36 <ynpvisitor84> SC
17:03:05 <Graham> hello .... did I miss anything?
17:05:01 <Graham> of
17:11:57 <Graham> must be nap time
17:14:06 <Graham> so Steamboat is nearly 10 days past the prior interval ....... who do we blame for that?
17:14:25 <kcmule> I missed the boat then I sank it
17:14:35 <Graham> maybe it was the Kevin/kcmule/Dave from B trifecta?
17:15:05 <Graham> did you at least enjoy your trip or was it all getting eaten by mosquitos while watching splashing?
17:17:08 <Graham> grotto?
17:18:01 <ynpvisitor84> SC
17:18:26 <kcmule> much splashing and whirligigs but Dave S took care of a significant % of the skeeters
17:22:01 <kcmule> the coincidence of our simultaneous arrivals disturbed the basin
17:26:17 <ynpvisitor84> :grand:
17:35:39 <Graham> sorry to hear you spooked. Odd that it didnt rebound as you left though, that would be expecetd and cruel.
17:37:23 <ynpvisitor56> why odd?
17:37:39 <Graham> at least Giant didnt erupt while you were there at Norris
17:39:20 <Graham> odd because geysrs liek to be cruel and erupt when people leave especially if they went to try and see them
17:39:58 <ynpvisitor56> I get it now. Thought you were expecting a fast turnaround after disturbance
17:40:39 <kcmule> I knew I borked it. and Giant did erupt, Forest saw it
17:44:20 <kcmule> that 'new' geyser out at porcelain makes u wish to be closer. not sure if it's still going
17:44:31 <Graham> ah, guess i got my weeks mixed up. so the geysers really conspired against you ..... not nice of them
17:47:09 <ynpvisitor56> steamboat note says there was hail-sized hail
17:48:13 <ynpvisitor56> :)
17:52:14 <Graham> nice GHP this evening
17:52:24 <Graham> Dep?
18:11:45 <Graham> LC?
18:15:37 <ynpvisitor33> DAISY
18:36:52 <ynpvisitor55> Looks like a Bierstadt painting

19:13:20 <ynpvisitor55> Wicked lightning
19:13:29 <ynpvisitor55> Lighting I mean
19:13:34 <ynpvisitor55> Bad typo
19:33:08 <ynpvisitor68> Is Indy ie?
19:35:39 <ynpvisitor32> looks like steam from BH
19:36:05 <ynpvisitor100> Someone flashing a light. I hope it's the Bat Signal.
19:43:16 <ynpvisitor100> Wish that was Giant
19:44:06 <ynpvisitor102> I'm still vaguely wishing Giantess will return to life some day.
19:44:26 <ynpvisitor100> It has been a while
19:44:58 <Michael> The day Giantess erupts again is unofficial Christmas as far as I'm concerned.
19:45:55 <ynpvisitor100> We have a history of non traditional dates for Christmas in the park :)
19:46:22 <Michael> :)
19:47:22 <ynpvisitor102> Well I know what to put on my list this year. Now I just have to be good. Hmm.
19:59:10 <Michael> Someone is watching Indicator intently. I hope they see water there soon.
20:03:58 <ynpvisitor100> I appreciate that light
20:09:45 <Michael> OF
20:10:55 <ynpvisitor100> Different light

21:19:51 <Michael> Thanks for the dings.
21:25:30 <ynpvisitor44> Yw got it just as the moonlight hit
21:26:27 <Michael> The lighting turned out WAY better than I thought it was going to be.
21:27:19 <ynpvisitor44> Sure did. Focus was terrible a few minutes earlier
21:36:38 <Michael> Lion ie. That's going to be my nightcap.
21:53:47 <ynpvisitor13> What a tremendous full moon bow!
