04:03:56 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, 2nd maybe already?
04:11:12 <ynpvisitor999®> T1C | 8m53s
04:11:20 <ynpvisitor999®> so no second :(
04:17:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep ie
04:23:23 <ynpvisitor71> such a nice sunrise :-)
04:23:53 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed. So many colors
04:23:55 <ynpvisitor71> a calm and peaceful morning
04:24:04 <ynpvisitor71> love it
04:48:16 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ns
04:53:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome ie?
04:54:14 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
04:55:22 <Dave from B™> Good morning fellow gazers and raven
04:55:31 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
04:56:38 <ynpvisitor71> oooh nice pic
04:57:23 <ynpvisitor71> morning Dave, afternoon DG
04:58:49 <ynpvisitor71> is it me or does SC look bigger than last year?
04:58:56 <ynpvisitor999®> that raven is casually watching SC as if nothing is happening
04:59:32 <Dave from B™> I'm not a SC expert but it does seem a little taller
04:59:49 <ynpvisitor999®> as far as I know from my observations, it does seem a bit more vigorous than last year
05:00:44 <Betty> we seldom do have such nice closups from it
05:02:21 <ynpvisitor57> I dodn't expect anything else right now so, thought it would be nice to see SC and the birds
05:07:32 <Betty> thanks :-)
05:09:33 <Dave from B™> Artemesia is due:)
05:09:41 <ynpvisitor999®> It's always nice to have a close-up of one of the smaller features. Plus, it's also one of my favorite features in Yellowstone for some time now
05:11:16 <Dave from B™> Becca left at 0515 with 3 friends on their way to 3 nights in YNP. They are touring Mammoth, Norris, LGB, Biscuit today
05:13:42 <Betty> great
05:23:23 <ynpvisitor999®> LGB times have just been uploaded
05:24:03 <Betty> time to head home. bbl
05:24:15 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Betty
05:58:25 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Mike
05:59:07 <Mike J> Morning 999 and all the ships at sea
05:59:34 <Mike J> (No idea where that one came from)
06:05:43 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jimbo
06:06:00 <Jimbo Dubnium> Good morning
06:07:38 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
06:07:47 <Bill> Morning
06:08:16 <Dave from B™> Morning Jimbo, Bill and Mike J (who must be dreaming of a Disney cruiseship or something)
06:13:44 <Mike J> Speaking of Disney, just reading about what the park was like last Friday. Anaheim hit 115 and boy the crowds were light
06:14:35 <Mike J> Anyone know what's the warmest temperature Yellowstone has hit?
06:15:25 <Dave from B™> I want to believe it is upper 90s but not sure
06:15:52 <Bill> Has been hot.... can confirm.
06:16:11 <Dave from B™> 97F at West in 1936
06:16:24 <Dave from B™> 92F at Lake in 2003
06:16:46 <Mike J> We can manage 115 in Phoenix, but can't imagine gazing in anything close to 100. Plus the thinner atmosphere
06:17:00 <Bill> Plus no AC
06:20:52 <Dave from B™> 75 is hot in the basins
06:39:22 <Bill> Hah. Finally listening to the audio from the 6/15/18 eruption of steamboat. Lots of screaming haha
06:40:46 <Mike J> Years from now, researchers will listen to that audio and note that Steamboat, in eruption, sounds almost human.
06:41:50 <Bill> Secrets of Yellowstone
06:43:31 <ynpvisitor63> Walter Winchell, "Good evening, Mr. and Mrs. America from border to border and coast to coast and all the ships at sea."
06:50:01 <ynpvisitor999®> according to the YVO SB graph, SB had some water-back-in-plumbing-phases overnight
06:50:47 <Mike J> Thanks 63. I remembered the sign-in, but couldn't remember who it was. (And, no, I'm not old enough to remember the original being said.)
07:04:15 <ynpvisitor999®> SC soon
07:04:57 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
07:10:29 <Kent> Glorious Day! I am told mosquitoes "Alaska Bad" in places. Summer in Wonderland.
07:10:35 <Kent> Good morning
07:10:53 <Dave from B™> Morning Kent. Jim S refers to them as the Wyoming Air Force
07:11:19 <Kent> Hikers yesterday praying for wind
07:12:00 <Dave from B™> They are really bad in Billings for the first time in a decade or so. Don't even want to be outside eveh though temps are nice in the eveninig
07:12:45 <Kent> Ours now have all the appropriate diseases so getting bit is not really a good thing.
07:13:48 <Kent> I had one in my cabin last week but that was all I saw. 30MPH winds helped :)
07:14:44 <sparekitty> the mosquitoes were HORRENDOUS along the MO last week! sooo thick in Craig and Cascade. but the fishing was good.
07:15:07 <ynpvisitor79> lots of mosquitoes usually means the fishing will be good
07:22:25 <ynpvisitor...> I wonder if Mr. "I hate snow" has melted?
07:23:39 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP bathtub w/SW vents 0914
07:24:15 <Dave from B™> Kent, he should be up by now!
07:24:24 <ynpvisitor109> It was only 112° here with a stray hailstorm.
07:24:45 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin
07:24:51 <Kevin L™> Hi
07:25:43 <ynpvisitor...> Good morning. 112° ain't nothing for you guys.
07:26:02 <ynpvisitor999®> so, your area got water for the rest of the year thanks to that hail storm. Good to hear :)
07:27:45 <Kevin L™> No, it was about normal. Don't like it over 110°. Couple that with a 95° low and it makes a toasty day.
07:28:33 <ynpvisitor28> Who maintains "geyser behavior chart" (in links)? Seriously outdated / wrong. Baby Daisy hasn't erupted in 14 years.
07:29:16 <Kevin L™> Water didn't last long. This time of year we get rain storms that evaporate before the rain hits the ground. Just raises the humidity. It is called virga
07:33:07 <ynpvisitor999®> 28, I think it's maintained by the NPS, based on the title. Else I don't know. Maybe Eric knows more (ping him when he's here).
07:47:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside ie?
07:47:38 <ynpvisitor999®> no
07:48:09 <ynpvisitor999®> or maybe yes
07:49:14 <ynpvisitor...> 7y
07:57:36 <Dave from B™> 7 years?
08:00:55 <Dave from B™> Or maybe your cat is typing in code?:)
08:01:19 <Kevin L™> Cat on the keyboard?
08:02:02 <Dave from B™> Not quite as exciting as a cat on a hot tin roof
08:02:38 <Kevin L™> West gate is horrible
08:13:56 <Kevin L™> 77° already in the basin. Going to be a miserable day for gazers.
08:15:53 <Dave from B™> ouch...Becca will be roasting today
08:16:17 <Kevin L™> Hope you sent strong sunblock with her.
08:16:37 <Dave from B™> Doesn't work if she doesn't apply it
08:16:56 <Dave from B™> I hope she learned her lesson from last trip
08:17:08 <Kevin L™> True. I thought you had brought a lobster with you.
08:23:00 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion is primed
08:25:55 <Dave from B™> Polly seems to think a short Steamboat interval is coming per GT
08:26:39 <Kevin L™> Start packing Dave
08:26:54 <Dave from B™> haha
08:27:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Maybe an interval of about five days, based on Polly's earlier note on Porkchop
08:28:21 <Dave from B™> Becca should be at Norris as we speak. I'll let you know what she says later today when she is back in cell range
08:31:51 <Emily> hi
08:32:15 <ynpvisitor...> The voodoo lady says the 15th and I am sticking with her.
08:32:39 <Emily> voodoo lady?
08:33:35 <ynpvisitor...> Madame Roo down on thirty-fourth and Vine
08:34:03 <ynpvisitor...> Emily, were you at Vixen about noon on the 3rd?
08:34:23 <Emily> I wasnt in yellowstone on the 3rd
08:35:06 <ynpvisitor...> Thanks. I had a good chat with a young woman and afterwards wondered if was you.
08:35:09 <Mike J> Bad news about Madame Roo - she is great with love potions, but not so much when it comes to geyser love
08:35:35 <ynpvisitor...> I wouldn't cross her Mike :)
08:35:54 <Emily> Were you there the 4th?
08:35:57 <Kevin L™> Sounds like you had a good trip Emily.
08:36:39 <ynpvisitor...> Nope. I left the UGB after the trifecta the morning of the 4th and headed home.
08:36:41 <Emily> It was up and down. Giant Wednesday. THough about norris on Friday but went to pile. That one was out of nowhere
08:37:41 <Emily> Only Udo would have been there if some folks got lucky. Bunch of people who had seen steamboat left and others got lucky because they wanted one more whirligig before leaving
08:39:48 <Emily> Giant to me was out of nowhere but super awesome
08:40:24 <Kevin L™> Anytime you get even one of the big 3 it is a great trip.
08:41:15 <Jimbo Dubnium> Did anyone post a video of that Giant? Sounded like the start was a surprise.
08:41:17 <Emily> indeed, I was sour with the steamboat just because I had given up on it July 4th trip. Oh well, its back and kickin so Ill be back
08:41:31 <Emily> I have one
08:42:18 <Kevin L™> At least you are close enough for some short trips.
08:43:20 <Emily> hot period started off a long grotto with no rocket just like the one two eruptions ago. not a 'strong' one. Feather was the only vent on as mastiff started depth charging. Giant hen started having splashes and the water level was high
08:45:36 <Emily> I thought it wouldnt start. But it was evident as I learned afterward that mastiff depth charging is it pushing hard. And Giant was just ready
08:48:27 <Emily> Fan and Mortar was just complete garbage for two days. Not strong and very lazy. Going between very long cycles and garbage. Mildly surprised it overnight
08:52:23 <ynpvisitor999®> so Mastiff depth charging is a positive sign?
08:53:48 <Emily> Thats what I gathered. It does that when something is pushing from down below. since giant is closely related to mastiff. When Mastiff is pushing Giant is pushing
08:54:48 <ynpvisitor50> My understanding is that Mastiff depth charging is what you see after a decent Bijou pause. I would call the Mastiff behavior I’ve seen during a hot period surging.
08:54:57 <Emily> ok
08:55:26 <Emily> 50 you are more likely correct
08:56:34 <ynpvisitor50> Depth charging has a similar appearance to dropping a good sized rock into a pond.
08:58:18 <Dave from B™> On the actual GHP I saw, it seemed water erupting out of either Mastiff vent right before a Bijou pause led to a hot period rather than a bathtub or footbath
08:58:40 <Dave from B™> To clarify, I saw 5 GHP's 2 weeks ago
09:00:38 <Emily> I cannot say, I never saw any hot periods start. I only saw 2
09:01:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum 1052
09:01:29 <ynpvisitor999®> didn't even notice it was going
09:01:45 <Kevin L™> How did we miss it?
09:01:56 <Kevin L™> I have even been looking for it
09:02:41 <Dave from B™> Kevin, didn't you sneak into the kitchen and grab a cookie about that time?:)
09:02:47 <Kevin L™> Where is Betty when you need her?
09:03:01 <Kevin L™> No, I was here.
09:05:27 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ns
09:05:33 <ynpvisitor999®> or ie or exact
09:06:31 <Kevin L™> Pretty strong for SC
09:07:07 <Dave from B™> I wonder if SC is connected to OF
09:07:24 <ynpvisitor999®> it does seem to have increased in vigor compared to summer 2017
09:07:34 <ynpvisitor...> When not obscured by fog it is a cute little sput.
09:08:16 <Kevin L™> A shot by a lightning bolt is enough to get anything going!
09:08:23 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
09:08:38 <ynpvisitor...> I had forgotten about that
09:08:46 <ynpvisitor999®> except electronic things, Kevin
09:09:07 <Mike J> Now if we could just get lightning to strike a few other select geysers.
09:09:18 <Kevin L™> Electronics don't play well with lightning.
09:11:23 <ynpvisitor999®> If so, I'd like to order a lightning bolt for Sawmill Complex (×25), White Pyramid Geyser Dome, Giantess (×5), Excelsior (×10-15) and Semi-Centennial (×5000, to reroute Obsidian Creek)
09:12:00 <Dave from B™> I remember split cone strike
09:13:21 <Mike J> I'll add Plume
09:15:45 <ynpvisitor...> Ya know how cans of coke will explode in the freezer? They'll do the same in the car on a hot day :(:thumbsdown::(:thumbsdown::( We need a "boy am I stupid" emoji
09:16:02 <ynpvisitor999®> oof
09:16:20 <Kevin L™> They do that outside here.
09:16:46 <ynpvisitor999®> that's a sticky situations
09:16:47 <Kevin L™> I had one do that in my State truck once. Luckily it was diet.
09:17:52 <Kevin L™> There was one by my BBQ that got left about a month ago that attacked me when I was mowing the lawn
09:18:10 <ynpvisitor...> :)
09:18:32 <Kevin L™> The ones that get real ugly are the homebrew rootbeer bottles.
09:20:05 <Kevin L™> A friend had a 2l bottle on a shelf in his garage. Heard a big boom and crash. Took the whole shelf down.
09:20:07 <Rice> Ever had a bag of potatoe chips pop at high altitude? Scared the crap out of me going over Red Mountain pass in Colorado.
09:20:30 <Kevin L™> I have had them get big but not pop.
09:20:48 <ynpvisitor...> I remember those from my youth. You would get them ice cold and still lose 2/3s of the rootbeer. Probably a little more than rootbeer in what was left in the bottle
09:21:45 <Rice> I was sure something had blown up in the van, or camper, kids found the potatoe chip bag, we all got a good laugh afterwards
09:22:04 <ynpvisitor999®> a long time ago I sometimes popped a potato chips bag by compressing them using my hand. A few times it opened on the wrong side...
09:23:07 <Kevin L™> Castle getting active.
09:25:43 <Dave from B™> Didn't I hear Lion was waking up awhile ago?
09:26:19 <Kevin L™> In the jungle....
09:26:31 <ynpvisitor999®> I said it was primed, but apparantly it had one of those splashes which delays the initial by an hour or more
09:32:14 <Dave from B™> It will do that
09:33:29 <Dave from B™> I'm thinking the initial between now and 1230
09:39:09 <ynpvisitor999®> just about a long - ~3m39s
09:57:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
09:59:31 <Dave from B™> Is Fountain prediction new on GT?
09:59:57 <Rice> I believe it has been there .....
10:01:11 <Dave from B™> That figures...I've often said I hope no one robs a bank while I'm watching
10:05:36 <ynpvisitor999®> some nice tall bursts
10:07:06 <Jimbo Dubnium> time check
10:07:08 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it'll be a 1b
10:07:20 <Jimbo Dubnium> Yup, into 10 minutes
10:08:31 <ynpvisitor999®> and b1 done
10:09:34 <Jimbo Dubnium> At bottom left, what's the bubbling pool?
10:09:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Spasmodic
10:09:48 <Jimbo Dubnium> That's right
10:15:46 <ynpvisitor999®> Quite steamy on Kilauea static
10:16:22 <ynpvisitor74> Has anyone noticed the YNR seismograph signature at 11:25 this morning? Looks like SB eruption, but not matched on YNM...
10:19:24 <ynpvisitor999®> welcome back Betty
10:20:27 <Betty> thx
10:23:07 <Dave from B™> What is YNR?
10:24:01 <ynpvisitor74> USGS seisomograph at Norris Ranger Station. Usually shows Steamboat eruption signature same as the Norris Museum (YNM)
10:24:21 <ynpvisitor88> I’ve been watching seismo too! YNR is Norris Ranger Station seismograph.
10:24:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Same noise is visible on B950: http://quake.utah.edu/station/heli/B950.png
10:24:54 <ynpvisitor74> Where is B9450?
10:25:03 <ynpvisitor74> B950....
10:25:41 <ynpvisitor999®> a bit south of YNR
10:26:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
10:31:02 <Dave from B™> Strange 74 & 88
10:32:02 <ynpvisitor74> Such a clear signature on YNR....keep watching Tantalus for a spike in flow
10:32:03 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it's an error on UU's side. I don't think it has a special meaning.
10:35:03 <ynpvisitor999®> Also, the SB signature has a build-up before it reaches its maximum intensity, after which it slowly decays. This is not the case on the current YNR and B950 graphs, and therefore it makes it even unlikelier for SB to have erupted on such a short interval.
10:47:51 <ynpvisitor999®> 11:33:29 ‹Dave from B™› I'm thinking the [Lion] initial between now and 1230. Sure you did.
10:48:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Still nothing
10:48:35 <Kevin L™> The Lion sleeps today
10:49:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I really hope Lion has a long series today
10:49:49 <ynpvisitor999®> NG would be a nice addition
10:50:47 <ynpvisitor999®> BC and Lioness would be nice too, though if I recall correctly, they'd render Lion dormant
10:51:32 <Dave from B™> DG, what's unusual about that? Most times I predict something it erupts out of my window.
10:53:05 <ynpvisitor999®> true, but it's been too long without Lion for me
11:00:22 <Betty> OF
11:08:37 <ynpvisitor999®> SC 1308
11:29:16 <Dave from B™> Becca just reported basically what Hoppe reported on GT earlier re Steamboat. She took video that I will look at when she gets back home
11:35:58 <ynpvisitor66> Becca is in the park?
11:36:27 <Dave from B™> yes. She is taking 3 friends from college around the park for 4 days/3 nights
11:36:35 <Dave from B™> Just arrived at OF
11:36:49 <ynpvisitor66> nice, do they have a cabin?
11:37:13 <Kevin L™> Tell her Aurum is due
11:37:19 <Dave from B™> Yes. OFL caBIN FOR 2 NIGHTS AND THEN 1 NITE AT then 1 nite at Roosevelt
11:37:32 <ynpvisitor66> sounds like a lot of fun
11:38:28 <Dave from B™> I would assume they will be watching the next OF
11:44:33 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
11:44:50 <ynpvisitor999®> FINALLY
11:44:50 <Betty> yay
11:45:51 <ynpvisitor999®> tall
11:49:52 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
11:52:40 <ynpvisitor999®> nice splashing in Bee
11:56:05 <Dave from B™> Stupid cell service at OF. Getting duplicates of all of Becca's textx
11:58:03 <ynpvisitor66> that is better than not getting them Dave
12:00:05 <Kevin L™> My Brother only got T Mobile between Aurum and BH on Geyser Hill
12:14:38 <ynpvisitor66> hot day to wait for BH on the hill
12:14:52 <ynpvisitor66> we do not see 87 on the temp too often
12:15:15 <Kevin L™> 87° in the park! That is hot!
12:15:33 <ynpvisitor66> yes, especially around OF.
12:15:55 <Betty> Castle
12:16:47 <Betty> hey Kevin! did I say hello to you already?
12:16:59 <Dave from B™> ouch 87
12:17:07 <Kevin L™> Not sure, but hi!
12:17:51 <Betty> Hi :-D
12:18:53 <ynpvisitor66> Hopefully Becca will keep her friends hydrated
12:19:20 <ynpvisitor66> Nice Castle bursts
12:19:47 <Betty> yes, a good one
12:20:09 <Jimbo Dubnium> And use both bug spray and sunscreen!
12:20:11 <ynpvisitor66> hopefully some shaded tourists are enjoying it
12:21:37 <ynpvisitor66> This Castle will not be a minor
12:21:57 <ynpvisitor66> is Joe in the UGB?
12:23:06 <Dave from B™> Have you ever tried to tell Becca something?:)
12:23:26 <ynpvisitor66> they may learn the hard way
12:25:51 <Jimbo Dubnium> Have you seen the commercial where the girl gives her friend the sunscreen instead of the bug spray because she was eating a Snickers bar?
12:26:59 <Kevin L™> Looks smoky on the horizon. Are there fires up there?
12:27:23 <ynpvisitor66> fires in CA and UT
12:27:52 <ynpvisitor66> maybe one in MT now, have not checked
12:27:58 <Jimbo Dubnium> Washburn cams look a little hazy, but not bad
12:28:26 <Kevin L™> I know they had some in Colorado. Made the D&SNG use diesel instead of steam. :P:P:P:P:P:P:P
12:29:07 <ynpvisitor66> big ones in CO
12:29:11 <ynpvisitor52> Biggest fire in nevada
12:29:13 <Kevin L™> I think we have one near Vegas right now.
12:29:16 <ynpvisitor66> that is not usually where the park smoke comes from
12:31:43 <Kevin L™> BTW did you see the Caesar's Palace fountain has been conquered? Not sure why all these motorcycle types all want to jump over it of all things.
12:32:56 <ynpvisitor66> conquered as in they jumped over it?
12:33:05 <Betty> Joe is in the park
12:33:13 <Kevin L™> Yep.
12:33:15 <ynpvisitor66> thanks Betty, I thought he was
12:34:12 <Dave from B™> HELLO Betty:)
12:34:36 <Betty> hello again Fave
12:34:43 <Betty> OOOPPPS
12:34:54 <Betty> Dave;-)
12:34:58 <Dave from B™> I thought you did that on purpose!:D
12:35:05 <ynpvisitor66> she did
12:35:08 <Betty> nope
12:35:12 <Dave from B™> Do you need a bigger "D" key?
12:35:24 <Betty> I think so
12:35:28 <Kevin L™> Fave and Faisy. What a pair.
12:37:09 <Betty> I often type with one hand, and the shift key to the right seems to be too far away from the d key for my fingers :-)
12:37:53 <ynpvisitor999®> nice. OF waited for me to be back :)
12:38:07 <Betty> as BH did
12:38:35 <Kevin L™> At least she didn't call you ßave!
12:39:24 <Dave from B™> I wouldn't even know how to pronounce that!
12:39:26 <ynpvisitor66> too far away from the D key
12:40:04 <ynpvisitor52> of
12:40:29 <Dave from B™> That's Betty's story and she is sticking to it!
12:40:55 <Betty> :-D
12:48:38 <Dave from B™> So, we are 5 or 6 degrees from old time record in YNP. I wonder if it is hotter anywhere else in the park
12:49:16 <ynpvisitor999®> nice. OF waited for me to be back :)daisy
12:49:18 <Dave from B™> Record high in Mammoth is actually 99F.
12:49:20 <ynpvisitor999®> whoops
12:49:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:49:43 <Dave from B™> So, not sure what sight I used earlier but it wasn't accurate
12:49:48 <Dave from B™> site*
12:50:33 <Kevin L™> You need to adjust your sites Dave
12:50:52 <Dave from B™> I just did:)
12:51:15 <ynpvisitor999®> nice short Daisy intervals today
12:51:47 <Kevin L™> I get to do that too. Bought me a new Rainbow Canyon pistol yesterday since my old one was 45 years old.
12:52:00 <ynpvisitor999®> SC and Lion should be soon
12:52:20 <Kevin L™> Hopefully BH too.
13:01:02 <Kevin L™> Lion
13:05:40 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
13:06:51 <Betty> hi Joe
13:07:00 <Betty> how is the trip?
13:07:01 <Jimbo Dubnium> Is this a Split Cone wild phase?
13:07:07 <Joe> HiBetty
13:07:09 <ynpvisitor999®> how so?
13:07:16 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Joe
13:07:29 <Kevin L™> Are you toasting Joe?
13:07:42 <Joe> Great trip
13:08:50 <Joe> It's warm
13:09:43 <Kevin L™> 88° is hot for the park!
13:11:28 <Joe> Went and had a lot at SB this am
13:11:42 <Joe> Look
13:12:46 <Dave from B™> joe, did you bump into my daughter Becca at Steamboat?
13:12:52 <ynpvisitor999®> how long are you staying in the park, Joe?
13:12:54 <Joe> 60' water out of North
13:12:56 <Dave from B™> She was there at 1000
13:14:12 <ynpvisitor66> the debate seems to be if the extended water phase is delaying recovery or not
13:14:59 <Dave from B™> To me, clock doesn't start until Cistern is empty
13:15:00 <Joe> I did not see her
13:15:01 <Joe> I do not know her
13:15:26 <ynpvisitor66> well Dave, Cistern is already refilling
13:15:45 <Kevin L™> Pack your bags Fave
13:16:10 <Dave from B™> Did it empty this time?
13:16:28 <Joe> If she sawan old man with a rolling walker, that was me
13:16:44 <ynpvisitor999®> I personally don't think so, 66. Seen the high regularity and previous intervals of active phases, it to me seems the extended water phase doesn't delay the recovery.
13:18:00 <Dave from B™> 66, last note on Cistern I see is from Beveerly's from last night. Am I missing something (I usually am:))
13:18:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Kind-of like what's the case with Lone Pine, where further minors don't seem to affect refill rate.
13:18:34 <ynpvisitor66> I did hear today that Cistern was higher than last night. Still not overflowing. I guess that has not made it into a note yet
13:18:49 <Dave from B™> Thanks, 66. I appreciate the info. Interesting
13:19:05 <ynpvisitor66> did Becca say anything about Cistern to you Dave?
13:19:17 <ynpvisitor66> Joe, are you there alone?
13:19:54 <Joe> No with my wife
13:19:56 <Dave from B™> no. I didn't ask her. She just took video of Steamboat. She hasn't seen Steamboat after an eruption and was a bit confused by water/steam
13:20:32 <Betty> LC ie
13:20:38 <ynpvisitor66> I heard it is continual, no breaks
13:20:44 <ynpvisitor66> for NV
13:21:34 <Joe> I was unable to make it to cistern
13:23:00 <Dave from B™> Joe, I didn't realize you were headed back to YNP so soon. How long you in for?:)
13:24:17 <Joe> Have fun see you later
13:24:26 <Dave from B™> I was sentenced to 4 days in the cage on my last visit
13:25:03 <Joe> Leaving tomorrow
13:25:21 <Dave from B™> Good luck with BH
13:25:35 <ynpvisitor999®> see you later Joe
13:27:29 <Kent> Did Bill ever get his photos for the 3D image of Cistern? I like that pit very much and am interested.
13:28:28 <Betty> hi Kent
13:28:53 <Kent> Hi Betty

13:46:00 <Graham> hello. it couldnt wait for my shift?
13:46:10 <Dave from B™> It still might
13:46:16 <Graham> 23m indicator would work
13:46:27 <Graham> i saw yesterdays was a long one
13:46:29 <ynpvisitor999®> would be on the long side though
13:46:38 <Dave from B™> Good luck wrestling the controls away for whoever is driving:)
13:47:53 <Dave from B™> from*
13:50:09 <Graham> 10m to go ....
13:50:23 <Dave from B™> I think Becca is right where the rail ends
13:50:36 <Graham> she went without you?
13:50:52 <Jimbo Dubnium> green or white shirt?
13:50:57 <Dave from B™> Taking 2 college friends and her boyfriend for a prak tour
13:51:27 <Dave from B™> not sure what she is wearing. She left before I woke up this morning
13:51:28 <Graham> nice. improves her big-geyser chances
13:51:30 <Kevin L™> Look for a lobster
13:52:09 <Graham> are they spending the rest of the week at Norris?
13:52:32 <Dave from B> This is not a gazing trip....2 nites at OF one at Roosevelt
13:52:36 <Graham> 8m....

13:56:29 <sparekitty> so happy to see bee today!
13:56:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion is in a series, Graham, so the evening won't be boring. Hopefully
13:57:03 <Kevin L™> And Grand is due
13:57:17 <ynpvisitor49> nice tall eruption
13:57:46 <Kevin L™> If that was Becca she won't need a shower tonight.
13:58:10 <Jimbo Dubnium> Should still wash off the silica :D
13:58:32 <ynpvisitor999®> BH has the attention of OF customers
13:59:09 <ynpvisitor999®> and Joe got it
14:01:58 <ynpvisitor27> Lion shot out steam
14:02:25 <ynpvisitor999®> good to hear it's trying to go
14:03:08 <Dave from B> Time to go home and watch my electric meter go round and round. Have a great evening everyone!
14:03:20 <ynpvisitor999®> same to you, Dave
14:03:26 <ynpvisitor49> how hot in Billings Dave?

14:05:44 <ynpvisitor49> stay cool Dave
14:05:55 <Dave from B> no tub for tonight
14:05:59 <Dave from B> no hot tub*
14:06:25 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
14:07:23 <ynpvisitor49> ick, hot tub sounds awful
14:07:34 <ynpvisitor49> in the heat I mean
14:11:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
14:12:31 <ynpvisitor999®> BA
15:10:08 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
15:12:26 <ynpvisitor57j> Yes, that Daisy!
15:12:37 <Michael> Shortest interval out of the last 100. More, please.
15:17:04 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
15:18:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
15:26:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger's Hole is still active
15:27:57 <Graham> ben seems to have found his spot
15:29:32 <Graham> has the volcano cam view changed or just the activity?
15:30:16 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it's been raining for quite some time now, as I wouldn't have any other explanation for the steam in view
15:30:23 <Michael> Foreground looks the same to me.
15:31:02 <ynpvisitor999®> per USGS Twitter: "#LERZ: Heavy localized rain in #LeilaniEstates. #Fissure8 feeding agitated channel near vent, #lava level in channel is lower w/ dark crust further from vent."
15:32:05 <ynpvisitor999®> OF preplay already?!
15:34:13 <Graham> ok, thanks. just not used to seeing the steam coming off the flow, but i guess rain does that
15:46:48 <ynpvisitor49> I see HK posted Bijou when it had a pause. Should that be a note? Doesn't seem like anyone else was doing that.
15:47:37 <Graham> we have been putting bathtubs in as Hot Period notes
15:50:51 <ynpvisitor49> he put the Bijou pause as a Bijou eruption
15:55:13 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Have fun watching OF and Lion
15:55:29 <Graham> good night
16:21:34 <Kevin L™> Grand
16:21:37 <Kevin L™> .
16:21:37 <Kevin L™> .
16:21:38 <Kevin L™> .
16:26:00 <Graham> lion was a minor
16:49:08 <Michael> Sunshower
16:51:16 <Michael> Probably feels good if it's 80+ degrees today.
16:52:32 <Michael> Lion
16:58:39 <ynpvisitor37> Was Grand a one burst? HK posts do not say
16:59:03 <ynpvisitor37> Why would anyone ever want all that information he lists?
16:59:18 <ynpvisitor37> Simple code please, for me
17:00:17 <Michael> He wants all that information, for tracking all the features in the Grand complex.
17:00:38 <Graham> looks like Grand duration didnt get into GT this time
17:01:10 <Michael> I'm guessing it was a T1Q, and he will update the post once Vent+Turban restart.
17:01:31 <Graham> his app sends the data over. agree it would be nice to get the codes in standard log format too
17:01:48 <Graham> unfortunately theres no way for others to add them to an entry
17:02:51 <Graham> the codes show up on some of his entries but not all of them
17:05:02 <Michael> Do you know what the etiquette would be for manually entering the Turban eruption times in his Grand data?
17:05:28 <Michael> The 1800 Turban isn't logged in GT any other way.
17:05:39 <Graham> and the vent time ...... no dont know. go for it :)
17:06:22 <Graham> we have entered times when they showed up in other places on GT or GFB
17:37:09 <Kevin L™> No Giant hot periods since 1031
17:39:44 <Kevin L™> Daisy
17:39:57 <Michael> Has it had any since the last eruption? Or just bathtubs so far?
17:40:23 <Kevin L™> I guess I should say notes.
17:42:46 <Graham> i dont know if its been observed enough to know for sure. still early
17:44:29 <Michael> SteveO's notes made it sound like no hot periods as of this morning.
17:46:32 <Graham> i guess GT is missing an OF time ... oh well
17:53:14 <Graham> quitting now, enjoy Lion
17:53:26 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
17:53:55 <Michael> Night, Graham.
17:57:49 <Michael> Lion
18:07:04 <ynpvisitor...> Redbug
18:29:09 <ynpvisitor...> Oh lord won't ya buy me a new plastic dome..... Sorry Janis
18:46:35 <ynpvisitor79> I thought Kevin was going to take some bowl cleaner with him and clean it.
18:46:56 <Kevin L™> Forgot my jackhammer.
18:49:25 <ynpvisitor79> A hole saw would improve things.
18:59:56 <Michael> OF. Caught it this time.
19:02:20 <Michael> Lion
20:04:30 <ynpvisitor51> Pretty lightning behind Old Faithful.
20:05:50 <ynpvisitor51> Lion
20:07:53 <ynpvisitor51> Daisy
