04:59:23 <Rice> of
04:59:37 <ynpvisitor5> OF 0458 wc my box
05:00:23 <Rice> I just walked back in, and it was going off, and no one had commented so I did. You hav a better time
05:01:18 <ynpvisitor5> A long
05:22:49 <ynpvisitor59> LION
05:45:54 <ynpvisitor59> Riverside
05:46:13 <ynpvisitor59> nope F&M
05:46:41 <ynpvisitor59> nope Riverside
06:32:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
06:33:04 <ynpvisitor999®> and OF post-eruptive
06:33:14 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
06:48:11 <ynpvisitor88> Depression ie
06:48:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep ie?
07:01:04 <ynpvisitor111> no-one at BH?
07:03:06 <lori> the people on the benches need to go over there. no reason to sit and be cold at OF!
07:05:26 <Rice> They have no idea about Beehive
07:06:35 <Rice> That is one thing I would fault the NPS on, they don't premote, or make it know about Grand, Beehive, Daisy, Riverside.
07:08:47 <ynpvisitor73> INDY
07:08:51 <ynpvisitor73> .
07:08:51 <ynpvisitor73> .
07:08:52 <ynpvisitor73> .
07:08:57 <ynpvisitor999®> yay
07:09:51 <Rice> Let the Drooling Begin
07:10:03 <ynpvisitor111> that's what i was waiting for,,
07:10:14 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
07:10:22 <ynpvisitor73> .the wait is over
07:10:24 <Dave from B™> Morning everyone
07:11:11 <Dave from B™> Rice, does the NPS not tell people about other geysers because they don't want even more people out on the bw?
07:11:12 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like Grand has picked another window to erupt in - this time it's Beehive's
07:12:14 <lori> even if they don't know about Beehive, go walk the hill instead of sitting and being cold!
07:12:47 <Dave from B™> Short F&M interval
07:13:39 <ynpvisitor73> is that Kitt in the black poncho?
07:15:43 <Dave from B™> I would assume so
07:23:38 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
07:23:42 <ynpvisitor999®> fluffy
07:23:54 <ynpvisitor8> Aurum??
07:24:10 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe on static?
07:24:40 <ynpvisitor8> I‘m on the mobile lag
07:25:10 <ynpvisitor8> It was before of started
07:25:22 <ynpvisitor57> no Aurum
07:25:41 <ynpvisitor999®> ok
07:25:45 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Betty
07:25:57 <Betty iPhone> Hi DG
07:26:19 <Betty iPhone> morning all
07:26:36 <Betty iPhone> Yay BH
07:28:30 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like another Turban
07:29:57 <ynpvisitor73> Grand
07:30:02 <Dave from B™> That's a big Turban
07:30:07 <Dave from B™> :)
07:30:34 <Betty iPhone> Bbl
07:31:19 <ynpvisitor999®> D0 I think
07:31:32 <Betty iPhone> Oh, Grand
07:36:10 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
07:36:17 <Bill> Morning!
07:36:37 <Bill> It's Friday!
07:38:24 <ynpvisitor14> Quixk question for y'all, is that the caldera rim seen behind Grand?
07:40:39 <Dave from B™> No
07:41:13 <Dave from B™> Here's a link with a map...
07:41:15 <Dave from B™>
07:41:57 <ynpvisitor14> Thanks, Dave!
07:42:17 <Dave from B™> yw
07:42:21 <Betty iPhone> Morning Dave and Bill
07:42:36 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty and Bill
07:47:12 <Rice> Are we looking at something?
07:47:35 <ynpvisitor999®> I think we're just panning around, because nothing else is predicted to go
07:47:46 <Dave from B™> Evidently there was another sighting of the grizzly sow and cub on either Monday or Tuesday of this week between Lion and Sawmill in the trees
07:48:04 <Rice> Anemone
07:48:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Whirligig is liking the minor eruptions. Sometimes two precede the major
07:50:23 <ynpvisitor999®> Porkchop's temperature increased from ~75.5°C to ~81.5°C in six hours overnight. (Maybe water level increased?)
07:50:41 <Rice> What is that one erupting on cam?
07:51:27 <ynpvisitor999®> to the right of OF's vent and to the left of the Anemone's? Those are Improbable minors
07:51:41 <Bill> Morning Dave and Betty
07:52:39 <Rice> So will snow on Washburn make it through the weekend, my bet is No.
07:53:56 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm certain on that yet. I think it'll be all gone by the end of next week, but some parts may survive this weekend
07:54:04 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm not certain*
07:56:34 <Dave from B™> Lion ie
07:56:59 <ynpvisitor999®> long interval
07:57:09 <ynpvisitor999®> I think we missed a minor during Grand
07:58:10 <Dave from B™> Now that's some Grand data from HK
08:00:22 <ynpvisitor999®> that was some strong OF preplay
08:06:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep ns
08:12:17 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jimbo
08:12:45 <Jimbo Sodium> good morning
08:12:58 <ynpvisitor999®> feeling reactive today?
08:13:25 <Jimbo Sodium> Salty
08:13:56 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
08:14:17 <Jimbo Sodium> but not gassy ;)
08:45:18 <Jake> F&M's ability to erupt during the only 8 dark hours out of 24 is pretty remarkable
08:47:15 <Dave from B™> This is probably outlandish thinking but does the Firehole River water level drop at night?
08:50:53 <Jimbo Sodium> It wouldn't be expected to drop very much in one night
08:51:16 <Jimbo Sodium> *under normal flow conditions
08:55:34 <Jake> I *should* do the math on overnight eruptions before spouting anecdotal observations
08:56:22 <Jake> by contrast, Giant this year 5 of 6 eruptions in daylight
08:57:53 <Dave from B™> 8 of last 14 F&M were in the dark
09:01:21 <Jimbo Sodium> It'd be interesting to see that plotted against length-of-daylight-hours
09:01:55 <Jimbo Sodium> because F&M "normally" shuts down during winter when nights are longer
09:02:28 <ynpvisitor73> Lion
09:16:21 <Jake> Giant today pleeeeease so I can see it next week
09:16:55 <Dave from B™> Jake, what day do you arrive?
09:17:11 <Jake> Friday night the 20th
09:17:28 <Dave from B™> It could just wait for you before it goes next
09:18:02 <Jake> right, either go today or don't go at all this coming week
09:19:33 <Jake> I don't think I'm asking for too much here
09:20:23 <Dave from B™> Applying my luck at seeing the Big geysers, that means Giant next Thursday night or early Friday morning
09:21:46 <Jake> good thing we're completely different people, wait, are you going next weekend??
09:22:48 <Dave from B™> haha, no. If something aligns, I may sneak up July 27-29
09:22:59 <Jake> whew, good
09:23:40 <Jake> I won't be beholden to Giant or F&M. Steamboat certainly if the Cistern signs are right
09:34:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Based on the Porkchop logger, the Norris basin may have started a new cycle overnight
09:35:43 <ynpvisitor999®> if so, the previous cycle lasted 9 days
09:44:02 <sparekitty> what a lovely OF!
09:44:02 <ynpvisitor112> 0942 wc Fluffy
09:44:46 <ynpvisitor112> Static has good morning light
10:04:40 <ynpvisitor57> aurum
10:05:32 <Kevin L™> Good shot on static
10:45:38 <Dave from B™> Lion
10:51:46 <ynpvisitor999®> 7 Lions so far, though I think we've missed a minor when Grand went
11:52:27 <Dave from B™> Lion ie
11:53:17 <ynpvisitor999®> 8 or 9 in the series now :)
11:55:40 <Joe´> I think gazers are looking hard at NG
11:56:42 <Jimbo Sodium> I was just going to ask about North Goggles
11:57:31 <Joe´> a few observers there
12:08:51 <Betty> hi all
12:10:15 <Stephen G.> Hi Betty
12:10:35 <Betty> hi Stephen
12:42:23 <Betty> OF
12:45:31 <Betty> LC
12:46:44 <Dave from B™> Another Lion? Y or N?
12:47:01 <ynpvisitor999®> I think at least one
12:47:05 <ynpvisitor999®> so Y
12:47:38 <ynpvisitor999®> though I really hope NG can get its act together and go again some time today or this season
12:48:44 <Betty> some peeps at NG
12:49:13 <Joe´> lost my stream
12:49:28 <Betty> same here
12:49:37 <Kevin L™> me too
12:49:41 <Dave from B™> Me too:(
12:49:48 <Kevin L™> back
12:49:48 <Stephen G.> Me as well
12:49:48 <Betty> back
12:49:58 <Kevin L™> blurrry
12:50:06 <Betty> same here
12:50:20 <Betty> back
12:50:33 <Jimbo Sodium> focus people, focus :lol:
12:50:50 <Betty> Lion tries
12:51:13 <ynpvisitor999®> I thought it was on my side, so reloaded the entire page and ended up fighting with the chat box, because it kept resizing to the wrong size
13:02:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
13:03:09 <Betty> Lion still tries
13:05:42 <Betty> nice eruption
13:07:13 <ynpvisitor999®> 3½ minutes - not bad this far into the series
13:07:29 <ynpvisitor999®> might even be 3¾m
13:08:33 <ynpvisitor96> Maybe a shot at North Goggles now?
13:15:40 <Kevin L™> Here are some pictures from my neighborhood yesterday:
13:16:46 <ynpvisitor96> Yikes - that looks too wet for comfort. Any of that going int the local water supply, or all runoff downstream??
13:17:05 <Betty> bet you felt back to Germany
13:17:41 <Kevin L™> Yes and no. It goes to Lake Mead which is where we get our water supply for the most part.
13:18:59 <Kevin L™> A few clouds building today, so we may get more.
13:19:09 <ynpvisitor999®> One of the captions says "[...] seen on the failroad crossing [...]"
13:19:56 <Kevin L™> Betty, have you been writing captions for the RJ?
13:20:20 <Dave from B™> Kevin, thanks for the pics
13:21:06 <Kevin L™> That is the track that I ride on the museum train. This portion belongs to the City of Henderson but State ownership is just to the left of the picture.
13:22:11 <Kevin L™> During that storm it was about 10° cooler here than in the park!
13:24:22 <Kevin L™> I think it is funny that the sprinkles are on in the park.
13:24:34 <Kevin L™> sprinklers
13:28:22 <Kevin L™> The housing you see on the freeway picture with all of the construction signs is the area I live. Also the freeway you see is some that I worked on the design team for. (The flooding of the road was caused by a development that dumped the water directly on the road. I had told management about it when they were building it but they did nothing. :P )
13:32:05 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP 1322
13:32:31 <Dave from B™> Kevin, developer must have had deep pockets
13:32:49 <Kevin L™> Pack your bags Dave
13:33:59 <Dave from B™> My to go box, for right now, is for Steamboat only
13:39:16 <ynpvisitor96> Castle should be anytime now.
13:40:21 <ynpvisitor999®> There is a slight possibility of a pentafecta with Castle, Grand, OF, Daisy and Lion
13:40:51 <ynpvisitor96> That would be cool. What no :bee:??? ;-)
13:41:17 <ynpvisitor96> I really want see a North Goggle.
13:41:18 <Kevin L™> Maybe a Depression too?
13:41:30 <Dave from B™> Castle is should be any minute
13:42:09 <Stephen G.> North Goggles would be nice, or maybe Giantess
13:42:36 <Dave from B™> Grand could be now as well
13:42:49 <ynpvisitor96> Castle's interval is now up to 1414.
13:47:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle
13:49:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
13:51:57 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it won't be a penta :(
13:53:10 <Stephen G.> At least it was a nice dual for a few minutes with Castle and Daisy
14:06:05 <Jake> article on YNP cell tower:
14:06:29 <Jake> quoted as not increasing the coverage area but speed and capacity
14:10:38 <Dave from B™> Capacity increase of 38 times current...that might help!
14:11:16 <ynpvisitor31> Maybe more cams?
14:11:55 <ynpvisitor96> Mostly for the Canyon area. OF is still served by the tower on the cliff up behind the road to the SW.
14:18:11 <Kevin L™> Interesting start
14:18:54 <ynpvisitor999®> quick or slow? Was busy in another tab
14:19:31 <Kevin L™> About 3 high jabs then takeoff.
14:19:58 <ynpvisitor999®> nice
14:21:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
14:21:31 <ynpvisitor999®> minor so far
14:21:33 <ynpvisitor96> AGAIN! :-)
14:21:35 <Betty> yay
14:21:48 <ynpvisitor96> Even a minor at this point is impressive.
14:21:56 <Kevin L™> Go NG!
14:22:48 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm yet to see a 20+ series, though
14:23:08 <ynpvisitor999®> 10th or 11th of this series
14:23:28 <ynpvisitor96> Good framing.
14:23:40 <Kevin L™> 10 with 2 being minors.
14:23:51 <ynpvisitor96> 8 majors, two minors so far in this series.
14:25:00 <ynpvisitor999®> I still wonder if we've missed a minor when Grand went this morning, as that 85m interval seems a tad on the long side seen how the series developed
14:25:36 <ynpvisitor999®> so that's why I'm saying it's either the 10th or 11th of the series
14:26:13 <ynpvisitor96> Yeah, could be.
14:27:11 <Betty> Lion steaming
14:28:48 <Dave from B™> 96, doesn't entire park communications go thru Mt Washburn?
14:31:51 <ynpvisitor96> Dave, Good question - don't know. It might.
14:34:40 <Betty> Grand passed the 7 hr mark
14:36:01 <ynpvisitor5> Is it going for 8?
14:36:31 <Betty> no, Dave is not in the park
14:36:47 <ynpvisitor96> Probably won't be long now for Grand. Maybe a Vent delay or something.
14:37:40 <Stephen G.> Rift maybe? I saw it was posted on GT at 13:07.
14:38:06 <Betty> LC
14:39:23 <ynpvisitor96> I've been told - and my limited experience bears this out - that Rift alone doesn't affect Grand as it may one have. If Vent dribbles too much or waves start and then Grand fails, that could cause a delay.
14:39:55 <ynpvisitor96> But I won't swear to anything - not with geysers ;-)
14:40:06 <Betty> :-)
14:40:43 <Jake> I only swear at never to
14:40:50 <ynpvisitor47> park communications link
14:43:20 <Dave from B™> Thanks 47
14:43:52 <ynpvisitor47> its the best explanation I could find
14:44:26 <Dave from B™> 96, I've seen Grand fail to go when waves are present and that usually means next 2 Turbans don't produce a least that's my experience
14:46:14 <ynpvisitor96> Right - if waves happen and no Grand it can take awhile to repressurize.
14:46:58 <ynpvisitor96> Unfortunately, "waves on Grand" is not recorded in GT, so we don't know for sure.
14:47:13 <ynpvisitor47> Grand
14:47:19 <ynpvisitor96> yay!
14:47:38 <Kevin L™> There are waves on Grand
14:48:51 <ynpvisitor96> Here is something else I noticed this year, first time - the beginning of the FIRST BURST is the tallest of the eruption, and very impressive, while the second burst looks shorter in comparison.
14:50:41 <ynpvisitor999®> As for Rift delays, if I recall correctly, they do occur, but in recent years only when Rift has erupted for 1½h (or was it 3h?).
14:50:46 <Dave from B™> 96, how many eruptnios have you seen this year?
14:51:13 <ynpvisitor999®> SB notes are in
14:51:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Cistern is refilling
14:52:37 <ynpvisitor47> Jake may get a SB when he is there :)
14:52:43 <Dave from B™> I've experienced taller and shorter 2nd burst this season compared to the start of Grand
14:53:29 <ynpvisitor999®> it was this morning, per bbev's 0738-0752 note, at 16-18 inches below overflow, and according to his 1305-1324 note it was at 6-8 inches below overflow
14:53:44 <ynpvisitor999®> in the early afternoon
14:53:52 <ynpvisitor96> I've seen maybe 6 eruptions, with three multi-burst.
14:56:41 <ynpvisitor47> 10min
14:56:57 <ynpvisitor96> I was just surprised, because I'd never seen first bursts so tall, and second bursts so small.
14:57:26 <Dave from B™> One of of my 3 bursts, the same thing happened. Start of Grand was HUGE
14:57:39 <Dave from B™> 3 2 bursts*
14:57:50 <ynpvisitor96> Yepp, same here.
14:58:16 <ynpvisitor96> We did not miss another Lion at all, did we?
14:59:00 <ynpvisitor999®> we'll see
14:59:19 <Betty> LC ie
14:59:21 <ynpvisitor999®> it does seem rather quiet there now, so maybe we did
15:00:48 <ynpvisitor47> with all waiting for NG if there was a Lion someone would have posted
15:01:09 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q | 11m40s
15:02:33 <ynpvisitor96> the timing might have been right for a follow-up major of Lion.
15:03:06 <ynpvisitor999®> is there any way to review that 1421 minor of Lion to get the duration?
15:03:18 <ynpvisitor96> Are all those people waiting for NG? They look like regular tourists to me.
15:04:22 <ynpvisitor47> it is an unusual amount of folks hanging there
15:05:43 <ynpvisitor47> but none of them look homeless :)
15:06:21 <ynpvisitor96> LOL! I only see one person acting like they are waiting.
15:36:30 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
15:36:47 <ynpvisitor999®> same to you, Dave
15:36:48 <Kevin L™> Night Dave
15:36:57 <Betty> you too Dave
15:45:23 <Betty> SC ie
15:55:45 <Betty> OF
16:21:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy ns
16:36:55 <Betty> Headed out, night all
17:12:24 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP 1648
17:23:12 <GO GIANT> is it time yet?
17:23:43 <ynpvisitor999®> for Giant, maybe today or tomorrow
17:23:58 <GO GIANT> :)
17:24:25 <ynpvisitor999®> For SB, maybe a day or 2-4
17:25:29 <ynpvisitor999®> would be surprised if it were to go tomorrow
17:26:37 <GO GIANT> dont want Steamboat to upstage me
17:27:03 <GO GIANT> got the little F&M geysers out of the way
17:28:05 <GO GIANT> before dark would be nice
17:30:29 <Kevin L™> BH is getting close to its window.
17:31:16 <GO GIANT> it only lasts 5m, hardly worth it
17:32:20 <ynpvisitor66> GHP today, Giant is days off
17:33:27 <GO GIANT> why?
17:33:57 <GO GIANT> 2 hot periods
17:37:18 <GO GIANT> today wouldnt be an unusual interval for Giant
17:41:39 <ynpvisitor66> Doesn't it take days after a good hot period?
17:42:57 <GO GIANT> it can go whenever it wants if its having hot periods
17:43:22 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it takes a few normal Grotto's without a Rocket major in this active period
17:44:31 <ynpvisitor66> some day you will have to come observe 999
17:44:57 <GO GIANT> it can go whenever it wants if its having hot periods
17:45:10 <GO GIANT> and even if they are not being seen
17:46:24 <GO GIANT> no rocket reports today
17:46:27 <ynpvisitor999®> I have to, though I don't think I can go in the next 4-5 years from now (I'd take anything to go to Yellowstone if the opportunity presents itself, though)
17:54:46 <GO GIANT> do you want a summer job in the park?
17:55:48 <ynpvisitor999®> do they take 17 year-olds and do they pay the flight ticket?
17:57:12 <GO GIANT> i think you have to be older, probably at least 18 so an adult
17:57:28 <GO GIANT> probably dont pay flights
17:58:04 <GO GIANT> you can fly one stop thru Minneapolis :)
17:58:06 <ynpvisitor999®> that's going to be difficult then... hehe
17:58:38 <Kevin L™> Check here:
18:01:28 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll keep that one in mind
18:06:28 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
18:06:58 <GO GIANT> then you could watch SC every day from the benches
18:07:11 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed, haha
18:07:33 <Kevin L™> But watch for lightning.
18:39:25 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Have a great evening all!
18:39:45 <GO GIANT> night
18:53:27 <GO GIANT> daisy
18:53:34 <kcmule> daisy
18:53:59 <kcmule> idk what my delay is. a lot i think
19:10:10 <GO GIANT> of
21:02:09 <ynpvisitor37> Grand looks ie
21:15:55 <lori> not sure what is going on down basin
21:17:39 <Kevin L™> It would be nice if BH went before dark.
21:18:12 <lori> steamy that way, but can't see if there was any water from BHI
21:18:48 <ynpvisitor117> I would guess a gazer is watching BH
21:19:11 <Kevin L™> It looks more like BH steam.
21:19:27 <lori> I assume so, unless they are watching Giant?
21:20:16 <Kevin L™> I would think there would be someone on BH. Lot of people would not want to be at Giant this late.
21:24:28 <ynpvisitor117> Usually one gazer will keep watch and radio if Indy happens
21:29:43 <ynpvisitor78> DAISY
21:29:59 <Kevin L™> Pretty sky color
21:30:14 <Kevin L™> That looks like BHI
21:31:45 <Kevin L™> Should get BH before it gets too dark.
21:47:15 <Kevin L™> BH
21:50:02 <ynpvisitor37> Beehives to bookend the day.
