03:35:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle ie
03:42:38 <ynpvisitor999®> nice Bee splashes
03:52:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle ie again... I've seen this occur earlier, where a few water phases were separated by quite some minutes of quiet inbetween
04:00:17 <ynpvisitor999®> SC 0518 was pre-eruptive steam beginning to appear rather than an eruption
04:45:30 <ynpvisitor118> BHI?
04:45:37 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
04:45:41 <ynpvisitor999®> .
04:45:41 <ynpvisitor999®> .
04:45:42 <ynpvisitor999®> .
04:45:43 <ynpvisitor999®> .
04:45:44 <ynpvisitor999®> .
04:47:14 <ynpvisitor118> I am not a text sender...
04:47:18 <ynpvisitor999®> now it's hoping my internet doesn't cut out due to maintenance
04:47:27 <ynpvisitor999®> nor am I, 118
04:48:44 <ynpvisitor118> are you the driver 999?
04:48:49 <ynpvisitor999®> nope
04:49:57 <ynpvisitor118> hopefully someone on the boardwalk is a gazer
04:50:14 <ynpvisitor999®> JimS is there
04:51:10 <ynpvisitor118> good- no pressure for an aurate time
04:51:23 <ynpvisitor91> Where is Dave? He sends texts
04:52:06 <ynpvisitor118> no clue, I was surprised to get on and see BHI with no text.
04:54:18 <ynpvisitor91> I bet the in basin people would love a text
04:54:43 <ynpvisitor118> yep, nice wake-up alarm!
04:54:58 <ynpvisitor91> Though Jim would have called it on the radio
04:55:38 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
04:55:48 <ynpvisitor118> :D
04:56:14 <ynpvisitor118> I keep leaning in to get a closer look, lol
04:56:51 <ynpvisitor118> nice with the morning sun and wind drection
04:57:14 <ynpvisitor999®> haven't seen this wind direction for a while now
04:57:29 <ynpvisitor999®> usually wind goes the opposite way
04:57:50 <ynpvisitor91> GOSA has it live on FB
04:58:00 <ynpvisitor118> yep, if OF would behave and keep the view clear
05:01:35 <ynpvisitor118> thanks 91, I caught a bit of it!
05:02:13 <ynpvisitor118> maybe they will go to Grand next?
05:02:49 <Dave from B™> Good moerning everyone
05:03:44 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
05:04:01 <Dave from B™> Sorry, I was too late to sent text. Had to check a truck in right when I parked my car at work
05:04:38 <Dave from B™> I do not show up until 645-700 now. The perks of being the boss
05:05:25 <ynpvisitor118> it's ok Dave, work in the real world often interferes with fun.
05:10:37 <ynpvisitor91> I think you can watch the FB live post after the fact for those that missed it
05:33:23 <Dave from B™> Becca did catch her 2nd BH of the trip so BHI was called over the radio
05:37:36 <lori> good news Dave- I wasn't sure how much the radio is used any more. Did she run and get people to follow her?
05:39:00 <Dave from B™> She normally does grab people as she's the teacher in her:)
05:39:21 <Dave from B™> She ushered families from Connecticut and California around last trip
05:39:39 <lori> Love it!
05:40:10 <Dave from B™> I know some will disagree but you can never have too many gazers!
05:42:31 <lori> Sharing the love is a good thing.
05:45:17 <lori> I once met a lady who said "I want to thank you. I saw you running yesterday and told my husband 'she knows something, we have to follow her' and we saw beehive up close, we would not have done that without you." I loved it!
05:48:59 <Dave from B™> It is fun to see tourists who want to learn and see things
05:51:30 <lori> a nice change from the stop-photo-go groups in the park.
05:51:58 <Dave from B™> That is why Becca is in YNP. First trip to YNP for her freshman year college roommate and boyfriend
05:52:19 <Dave from B™> Or the mass following a big yellow flag on a stick
05:53:41 <lori> They have an excellent guide. A friend had a recent trip to DC, the tour guide had a light saber. Worked well, especially for the evening touring, lol
06:30:42 <Dave from B™> Alright Jimbo...with your name all I can think about is protractor or proctologist. Thanks a lot!
06:31:25 <J. Protactinium> Proletariat?
06:32:11 <Dave from B™> Help me to get focused. What is your element used for?
06:33:34 <J. Protactinium> Not much. It's mainly a precursor to uranium in radioactive decay series.
06:33:59 <ynpvisitor999®> according to wikipedia it's used for scientific reasearch
07:05:33 <Dave from B™> Morning spearekitty
07:05:53 <sparekitty> hey dave. how's everything?
07:13:29 <Dave from B™> I'm doing great
07:13:34 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin
07:14:45 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin and sparekitty
07:18:19 <Kevin L™> hi
07:54:31 <Dave from B™> Playing taxi today for my mom and time to get my ears lowered. Be back in 3 hours
07:55:30 <Kevin L™> Sure, wait for all the geysers and then leave.
08:28:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Per udo, Cistern Spring was ~3 feet below overflow, quiet and barely bubbling @ 0855
08:29:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Steamboat is quietly steaming with sometimes a houg
08:30:22 <ynpvisitor999®> and Emerald Spring is quiet and clear, not bubbling
08:37:30 <ynpvisitor37> Does Emerald Spring have any connection to Steamboat? I have seen it quiet, clear and green on my way in and boiling vigorously from three centers on my way out in less than an hour's time.
08:41:12 <Kevin L™> I believe Steamboat does have an effect on it bur I don't know how.
08:43:30 <ynpvisitor37> This evening I will go look at recent descriptions. I would write and ask, but don't want to have my inadequacies pointed out :)
08:44:15 <ynpvisitor37> Lion
08:45:22 <ynpvisitor37> I had 1043 wc
08:47:27 <Kevin L™> Got it
08:49:29 <Kevin L™> Was checking T Scott and he doesn't mention Emerald Spring in the Steamboat section except that is may have a connection. Nothing mentioned in the Emerald Spring section about it after a Steamboat eruption.
08:49:59 <Kevin L™> I think that there has been something mentioned in GT notes after an eruption.
08:51:58 <Jake> everything at Norris is connected somewhere unless the disturbance affects each feature independently somehow. As to what Emerald Spring's state says about Steamboat, I don't know that anyone has found any strong relationship there
08:53:11 <ynpvisitor37> Note from Amazon this morning that my copy of TSB5 has shipped. I will check the recent paper on Emerald Spring(s) and write Trail
08:54:06 <ynpvisitor37> Creek about "Disturbance" behavior.
08:55:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy 1054 in-basin time
08:56:02 <Kevin L™> In the OF window as usual.
08:57:23 <ynpvisitor37> Clock on static off by several minutes
09:00:12 <ynpvisitor999®> cb's SB note @ 0925: " steamboat is gently huffing steam from both vents. no water. Cistern is down approximately 6" from last nights observation. Below the crossed logs 4". Above the inner tube. Blue, clear with small bubbles. Gravel in the trough. emerald is beautifully clear, green and quiet with occasional convection ribbles."
09:00:15 <ynpvisitor999®> steamboat is gently huffing steam from both vents. no water. Cistern is down approximately 6" from last nights observation. Below the crossed logs 4". Above the inner tube. Blue, clear with small bubbles. Gravel in the trough. emerald is beautifully clear, green and quiet with occasional convection ribbles.
09:01:03 <Kevin L™> No line at West Gate. Unusual.
09:02:00 <Kevin L™> Steam tornado on Kilauea cam
09:02:08 <ynpvisitor999®> (one of yesterday's SB notes stated that Cistern was appx 36" below overflow)
09:03:02 <Kevin L™> Aurum
09:03:04 <Kevin L™> .
09:03:04 <Kevin L™> .
09:03:05 <Kevin L™> .
09:03:14 <ynpvisitor999®> nice
09:04:22 <ynpvisitor37> Way to go Kevin!
09:06:12 <Kevin L™> I always like to catch that one. My Brother never saw it. The only time we waited on it that it went he decided to go eat lunch. Xanterra lunch or watching geysers? Give me Aurum and a granola bar any day!
09:09:34 <ynpvisitor37> :)
09:12:04 <Betty> nah, missed Aurum
09:12:16 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty
09:12:35 <Betty> hi Kevin, nice you got it
09:13:07 <Kevin L™> Dave missed Aurum too.
09:13:52 <Betty> looks like. Hi Dave
09:13:57 <Kevin L™> The steam tornado is still up on the Kilauea cam. Awesome.
09:14:26 <Betty> wow
09:14:33 <Dave from B™> It's no fun getting old. Took my mom to an eye appt that wasn't until next week
09:14:45 <Kevin L™> In case you thought your train was crowded today Betty, this may make you feel better:
09:15:01 <Betty> ugh
09:15:12 <Kevin L™> You were just early Dave.
09:15:59 <Betty> I go with the car since last monday. They do track repairs till tomorrow. I hate going by car
09:16:11 <J. Protactinium> That steam devil is crazy. Looks like there was a lava river overflow
09:17:34 <Kevin L™> I wonder how much the lava heat does to the air flow.
09:18:40 <J. Protactinium> Quite a bit locally, but not much to the general winds over the island
09:19:43 <Kevin L™> I would expect that it could get pretty strong between the lava and the clouds.
09:19:48 <Betty> hi Jimbo
09:20:10 <Kevin L™> Would not want to fly a helicopter in that space.
09:25:33 <Betty> all entrances are really busy
09:33:21 <Betty> LC ie
09:34:24 <Betty> maybe not
09:53:24 <ynpvisitor999®> that steam tornado is still on the static
09:59:08 <ynpvisitor999®> time for some soccer. See you in about 45m
10:01:15 <Dave from B™> Time to get haircut...bbl
10:01:37 <Kevin L™> Watch for Giantess.
10:01:56 <Dave from B™> Cistern is still draining
10:02:03 <Dave from B™> Contrary to reports yesterday
10:05:45 <Kevin L™> Lion
10:13:32 <Betty> we need to keep an eye on Giantess
10:14:11 <Kevin L™> Good enough?
10:14:29 <Betty> can go any minute
10:19:18 <Betty> Kevin, I just had a look on the 2nd vid of the race. too funny and congrats to your son :-)
10:19:50 <Kevin L™> The crowd seemed to like him.
10:20:02 <Betty> yeah
10:20:26 <Kevin L™> The beer can was really funny. Wonder what that guy thought once he hit it.
10:21:03 <Betty> I bet he had some bad words for it
10:22:15 <Kevin L™> I guess his family was sitting a couple of rows behind us. I thought I heard a few boos. At least Rob didn't cut the course!
10:30:26 <Betty> looks like Giantess boils :-p
11:16:52 <Dave from B™> Betty, who is playing better today?
11:17:24 <Dave from B™> nevermind
11:17:44 <Betty> you willl not watch later?
11:18:13 <Dave from B™> No, too busy and my soccer watch partner is in YNP
11:18:59 <Betty> :-)
11:19:04 <ynpvisitor999®> From what I've seen, Belgium seems to create the most chances, though France leads by 1 point
11:19:19 <ynpvisitor999®> 1-0 as of typing
11:19:32 <Dave from B™> I'm hoping for a Belgium comeback
11:22:15 <Betty> both teams had their most goals in the 2nd half. we are in 65 min now
11:31:50 <Kevin L™> Looks like a short Lion series
11:32:06 <Dave from B™> Wore itself out overnight
11:33:38 <Betty> wow, did not notice there were 12 Lions
11:34:00 <Betty> Becca is at Grand
11:34:27 <Dave from B™> She is?
11:34:49 <Dave from B™> Guess she is...Thanks for keeping an eye on her, Betty!
11:34:50 <Betty> she had the last Turban
11:35:25 <Dave from B™> Not quite sure why she is at Grand at 5 hour mark, however
11:35:53 <Betty> maybe she saw it from Giant
11:36:37 <Dave from B™> WE've recorded it from Bike path neat Daisy turnoff before
11:40:21 <ynpvisitor66> maybe she saw Turban from the shade near Castle
11:40:54 <ynpvisitor66> only 76 today, that helps with the sun
11:42:16 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
11:42:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Grtand
11:42:53 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand*
11:43:09 <Betty> yay
11:44:40 <Kevin L™> Short Grand interval
11:44:58 <ynpvisitor999®> 5h57m
11:45:02 <ynpvisitor66> good thing Becca was there
11:46:00 <Dave from B™> I can guarantee she wasn't there for an hour
11:50:44 <Betty> still 1-0 in extra time
11:51:10 <Kevin L™> 8m
11:54:01 <ynpvisitor66> nice long eruption
11:54:14 <Betty> France made it to the final
11:54:26 <ynpvisitor66> who will join them?
11:54:51 <Betty> can tell tomorrow :-)
11:54:54 <Dave from B™> For some reason, I'm rooting for Croatia
11:55:12 <ynpvisitor66> you can banter with Graham
11:55:21 <Betty> haha
11:55:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Belgium can still become 3rd in the conselation match. I guess it's something.
11:55:40 <Betty> I think England will do it
11:56:59 <Betty> only a 1b
12:00:23 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q | 11m55s per Heinrich
12:03:18 <ynpvisitor66> so glad he started posting the codes

12:09:27 <Joe´> Dave, did Becca see the fat old man with a rolling walker yesterday?:)

12:13:04 <Joe´> stle area
12:13:34 <Joe´> Cant make it to Grand any more :(
12:15:04 <Dave from B™> That hill is a steep one
12:16:22 <Joe´> SB trail wasn't bad, but was worth it
12:27:44 <Dave from B™> Any plans to return this year, Joe?
12:28:57 <Joe´> Yes Aug 23 through 26
12:29:04 <Dave from B™> Nice.
12:29:52 <Joe´> If I can get a cabin at OF I will make another two day triup soon
12:29:52 <Dave from B™> FYI, Severe Thunderstorm Watch for 9 counties in MT including mine, Livingston
12:30:18 <Kevin L™> We had a good one here last night.
12:31:39 <Dave from B™> Yeah ya did....blew out the power at the World Series of Poker at the Rio
12:32:25 <Kevin L™> Glad it didn't happen when travis was doing the jumps.
12:42:22 <Joe´> Here is me waving at the cam at OF
12:43:46 <Kevin L™> :)
12:44:34 <Betty> ~~~~
12:44:43 <Betty> nice
12:59:57 <ynpvisitor92> Severe Thunderstorm Watch? If you were in Oklahoma or someplace close you could be the Flying Fish Seafood Company.
13:00:15 <Dave from B™> Joe, I admire you for getting out into the basin. I know it's not easy for you:)
13:01:55 <Joe´> Thanks Dave, Geysers are worth it, I get my Geyser fix and I'm good to go :)
13:17:50 <Betty> time to head out. Have a great evening all
13:17:59 <Dave from B™> Goodnite Betty
13:18:07 <Graham> hello ... i see France is setup for a loss against England at the weekend :)
13:18:09 <Dave from B™> see ya Kevin
13:18:26 <Dave from B™> Trash talking already, Graham? Good eveninig btw
13:18:41 <Joe´> Night Betty
13:19:21 <Kevin L™> Night Betty.
13:19:39 <Graham> haha well the result went the way i wanted ..... 5 for 5 in the last 2 rounds
13:20:14 <Kevin L™> Not sure what I did to upset the page.
13:22:19 <Dave from B™> No pets or grandkids running around?
13:22:36 <Kevin L™> Nope.
13:26:54 <Graham> happy anniversary 44th state
13:31:43 <Dave from B™> without looking, I'm not sure of that state....Colorado?
13:33:36 <Dave from B™> I didn't realize we were the 41st state
13:33:51 <Dave from B™> Joe, you should know the answer!
13:35:24 <J. Protactinium> Bing home page has a picture of Fremont Peak in the Bridger-Teton Wilderness today (clue)
13:36:03 <Joe´> Wyoming :)
13:38:38 <Graham> yep, its the home of the geysers
13:38:56 <Graham> i wonder if they all erupted to celebrate statehood?
13:40:43 <Joe´> Steamboat did for sure :)
13:42:13 <Joe´> early but it did!
13:46:38 <Graham> i bet it is steaming for the anniversary
13:46:39 <Dave from B™> Interesting fact. Wyoming became a state 18 years AFTER YNP became a national park
13:47:42 <Graham> cut down on the paperwork
13:48:36 <Dave from B™> So, I believe it was Montana Territory before that
13:54:29 <Dave from B™> A few changes in control for land that is now Montana...look at the following link
13:54:37 <Dave from B™>
13:55:21 <Dave from B™> YNP was never in Montana Territory. Territory of Wyoming from 1868-1890
14:06:04 <Graham> it was in Virginia though .... a while back
14:07:53 <Graham> which will go first, Steamboat, Giant, or F&M?
14:08:29 <Kevin L™> Probably
14:09:31 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll go with Steamboat, then F&M and then Giant
14:10:20 <Graham> i was thinking the reverse order ... but my predictions aren't any good
14:10:34 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
14:15:43 <Dave from B™> haha. I was thinking of asking that Q earlier.
14:16:21 <Dave from B™> F&M, Steamboat, Giant
14:17:03 <Graham> F&M could start a short series ... two 6+ in a row ... lets see
14:36:30 <Dave from B™> BUG
15:10:42 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
15:21:29 <Dave from B™> You're telling's 81F in my office right now
15:22:19 <Kevin L™> 72° in my office! :)
15:22:58 <Kevin L™> Of course it cooled off out side. 101° but humidity is 32%.
15:23:28 <Kevin L™> And my toilets flush too.
15:24:00 <Graham> you have an office?
15:24:58 <Graham> you getting the monsoon Kevin?
15:25:02 <Kevin L™> Not much of one. It was supposed to be a pantry
15:25:05 <Dave from B™> 10 days until drainfield work begins
15:25:38 <Kevin L™> Had some pretty heavy rain last night.
15:27:30 <Kevin L™> Clouds are building
15:31:19 <Dave from B™> Time to help close the market. Have a great evening everyone!
15:31:37 <Kevin L™> Night
15:31:54 <ynpvisitor999®> night Kevin
15:31:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Dave*
15:32:21 <Graham> bye Dave. GO ENGLAND
15:41:37 <Kevin L™> Only 86 days until the Knights next game.
15:55:19 <ynpvisitor66> Kevin, is that preseason. Didn't they just get done playing?
15:55:39 <Kevin L™> That is preseason.
16:04:55 <Kevin L™> Guess I better feed chickens while the only geysers are due are in the LGB
16:05:25 <sparekitty> i just fed mine! they were too lazy to lay today..prob due to HEAT!
16:17:02 <ynpvisitor66> Kevin's chickens are used to heat
16:17:48 <sparekitty> it was 120 over the weekend, WAAYYY hotter than usual in pasadena. one chicken died. maybe they're mourning...
16:19:28 <Kevin L™> Heat does slow egg production. Mine are panting. Try taking a can of corn and making ice cubes with the corn in it and putting that in the coop.
16:20:18 <sparekitty> i gave them some frozen watermelon the past couple days. and set up a mister. not sure if they like the water but it keeps the water dish topped off.
16:21:39 <Kevin L™> That should help. Mine usually are good in the hot times but they do stress. I spray them with cool water if it gets too hot.
16:21:56 <ynpvisitor66> sorry you lost a chicken
16:22:45 <sparekitty> thanks; i've had hens for about 4 years so and it's the 3rd hen to die. but since i get them from random people (aka FREE), i am never quite sure how old they are.
16:23:46 <ynpvisitor66> 120 sounds brutal
16:23:54 <Kevin L™> They are a lot of fun. When it is this hot they don't like to come out of the coop into the yard at all.
16:24:33 <Kevin L™> 120° is brutal here. In Pasadena it has to be horrible. We have the AC to handle those temps.
16:25:00 <Kevin L™> Here is a great site for chicken information:
16:25:05 <sparekitty> i really enjoy watching them. such fun to let them run around and scratch in the yard when i get home from work.
16:25:18 <sparekitty> thanks for the site! i haven't seen that one before.
16:25:49 <Kevin L™> She has some great tips for the heat in it.
16:26:43 <sparekitty> it so rarely stays over 100 for any length of time here! we do have a/c inside and i have the hens in a great shaded area, but you can only do so much!
16:27:33 <Kevin L™> Very true. Not like you can bring them inside.
16:38:04 <sparekitty> how many chickens do you have, kevin?
16:38:24 <Kevin L™> Right now I have 12
16:39:17 <sparekitty> i have eight. hoping to get a couple more but really, if they're all laying, that's toooo many eggs!
16:40:29 <sparekitty> OF is always so impressive!
16:41:25 <Kevin L™> My wife takes the extras to work and there is a line for them.
16:43:14 <Kevin L™> The egg size is strange. I have some leghorns that have huge eggs, an Easter Egger that lays green eggs, and some bantys that lay little tiny eggs.
