04:27:27 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
04:27:47 <Betty> afternoon DG
04:28:42 <Betty> Lion
04:29:01 <ynpvisitor8> be prepared, no BH seen overnight
04:29:18 <Betty> behaves like ini
04:29:32 <ynpvisitor999®> it probably is an initial then :)
04:29:45 <ynpvisitor999®> 1m in, still not full height
04:47:06 <GO GIANT & F&M> morning/afternoon
04:47:31 <GO GIANT & F&M> figure I had better cover both bases today
04:47:42 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Graham
04:47:50 <GO GIANT & F&M> Eric needs to change his nick too
04:48:21 <GO GIANT & F&M> looks like the overnight hot period is getting a bit later each night
04:50:09 <GO GIANT & F&M> nice Grotto steam this morning
04:50:26 <ynpvisitor999®> that's Rocket steam
04:50:42 <GO GIANT & F&M> ah, i see that now
04:51:26 <GO GIANT & F&M> wonder if both Giant and F&M are observed now? Probably enough gazers for that
04:51:58 <GO GIANT & F&M> Jim confirmes no F&M
05:11:11 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
05:16:03 <ynpvisitor8> spasmodic is steamy this am
05:17:42 <GO GIANT & F&M> maybe rift and WT?
05:17:54 <GO GIANT & F&M> speaking of WT, not sure i have seen many reports ...
05:18:41 <ynpvisitor999®> about every once in a day there's a WT according to recent reports
05:18:44 <GO GIANT & F&M> nope, its been reported, i have just not being paying attention with all the big geyser action
05:18:58 <ynpvisitor999®> not sure if WT has a logger, actually
05:19:29 <GO GIANT & F&M> since it recovered when Jom showed up its been going all the time I think
05:20:29 <ynpvisitor999®> time to watch for meteors and SC on the overnight captures
05:20:56 <GO GIANT & F&M> good luck
05:52:10 <Betty> Lion
05:52:23 <GO GIANT & F&M> no BH report?
05:52:38 <ynpvisitor999®> haven't seen it on the overnight captures
05:52:47 <Betty> neither me
05:53:09 <Betty> Depression?
05:53:30 <GO GIANT & F&M> bee looks quiet now
05:53:52 <GO GIANT & F&M> i guess oits new moon, so not much light
05:54:12 <Betty> not too bad tonight
05:54:13 <GO GIANT & F&M> i think its just steam at dep
05:54:29 <Betty> Will is at Lion :-)
05:55:09 <GO GIANT & F&M> nice, or at least in view
05:55:25 <GO GIANT & F&M> he has been getting into the park a bit more recently
05:55:26 <Betty> yep, sure
05:55:56 <GO GIANT & F&M> i imagine he is going to Grand/Giant/F&M
05:57:01 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand 0754
05:57:50 <GO GIANT & F&M> fluffffy
05:58:47 <Betty> o, Will posted Vent
06:09:28 <GO GIANT & F&M> interesting that Jim has abandoned his geyser recently for Giant
06:14:13 <Dave from B™> Interesting Giant activity 7 minutes after GHP ended...How often does that happen?
06:14:19 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone!
06:14:33 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
06:15:29 <GO GIANT & F&M> not sure, its been a while since i saw good hot periods. i do remember that you would get lazy big splashes in the cone sometimes
06:15:54 <GO GIANT & F&M> people usually lose interest and stop watching tho
06:18:25 <GO GIANT & F&M> 105 hot periods logged so far this year
06:18:40 <GO GIANT & F&M> back to April
06:19:24 <ynpvisitor8> R'side soon
06:19:37 <GO GIANT & F&M> add one for the Feb eruption and its 106 at least
06:20:12 <ynpvisitor999®> 4 till 1050000 entries!
06:21:32 <GO GIANT & F&M> all we need is one Lion eruption to get there :)
06:22:03 <GO GIANT & F&M> didnt we have 4 entries for it the other day
06:22:17 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it was for an initial
06:22:23 <ynpvisitor999®> two days ago?
06:23:07 <ynpvisitor8> SC before Lion
06:23:26 <ynpvisitor999®> I wouldn't be so sure of that
06:24:41 <GO GIANT & F&M> LC?
06:25:02 <ynpvisitor8> looks like
06:25:20 <ynpvisitor999®> intervals of SC generally tend to fall in a 2h±30m window
06:25:37 <ynpvisitor999®> and I'd say LC is ie
06:26:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Entry 1050000 goes to White Dome:
06:26:53 <GO GIANT & F&M> i saw barb was getting times in
06:26:56 <Betty> LC is ie, yes
06:26:56 <GO GIANT & F&M> hehe
06:27:08 <Dave from B™> So, what day was 1,000,000 entered?
06:27:31 <ynpvisitor999®> October 26, 2017
06:27:55 <Betty> morning Dave, when did you sneak in?
06:28:31 <Dave from B™> 8:14...Hi, Betty
06:28:55 <Betty> haha
06:29:00 <ynpvisitor8> If we take out all the secondary postings how many do we have?
06:29:30 <Betty> Rocket?? Grotto??
06:29:39 <GO GIANT & F&M> i see you passed 30,ooo entries DG
06:29:55 <ynpvisitor8> probably less than 500k. WAG
06:30:18 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd say Grotto because Rocket was @ 0648
06:30:46 <Dave from B™> So, at this pace...entry 2,000,000 will be July 2032
06:32:13 <GO GIANT & F&M> gortto ended 0709 ... so maybe another one?
06:32:32 <GO GIANT & F&M> there are a lot of duplicates including the VEC uploads and E data
06:32:44 <GO GIANT & F&M> let alone the multiple gazer entries
06:32:46 <Betty> would love to see a Gortto live
06:32:58 <Dave from B™> Duplicates are gives additional verification of the validity of an eruption
06:33:19 <GO GIANT & F&M> you havent seen it yet Betty? should get to see it this year if you go down basin, its on and off all day
06:33:21 <Dave from B™> I would go ape over gorotto
06:33:46 <Betty> where is Gortto?
06:34:06 <GO GIANT & F&M> haha, i was wondering which vent that is. how many vents are in the Grotto Rocket complex?
06:34:34 <ynpvisitor999®> so, we now have Grotto, Gortto and Gorotto. Gortto and Gorotto may be two of the central vents?
06:35:06 <Betty> is Giotto another vent?
06:35:23 <GO GIANT & F&M> theres also the Rocket indicator vent and the Grotto N vent on the side
06:35:29 <Dave from B™> Isn't she on the Food Network?
06:35:51 <Betty> they are yummi :-)
06:37:02 <GO GIANT & F&M> Barb posted GF overflow, nice
06:39:53 <Betty> Oblong??
06:40:02 <GO GIANT & F&M> geyser hill walk passing by
06:40:02 <ynpvisitor999®> if I have to believe the Porkchop graph, we're now about half-way the Norris cycle (and thus hopefully half-way the SB interval)
06:40:27 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd say the Oblong-like steam is from Vent and Turban
06:40:51 <GO GIANT & F&M> its not Oblong like ... way too small
06:41:08 <GO GIANT & F&M> mybe oblong on a hot afternoon
06:41:35 <Betty> I cannot remember how they looked like on cam
06:59:58 <ynpvisitor33> 89° in the Lamar yesterday.
07:00:33 <Eric (8)> lion
07:00:57 <Betty> and Depression
07:01:07 <Eric (8)> haha...was just typing that betty :-D
07:01:17 <Eric (8)> and hello!
07:01:22 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
07:01:28 <Eric (8)> Hi DG
07:01:28 <Betty> hi Eric (7)
07:01:45 <Eric (7)> Thanks
07:02:06 <Eric (7)> Getting ready to head out to our County Fair
07:02:32 <Betty> Dave has a County fair as well
07:02:49 <Eric (7)> I think they happen pretty much in all counties in the US
07:03:21 <Eric (7)> They tend to be in the late summer, so farmers have time to finish their harvest.
07:04:08 <Dave from B™> Yep.I'm going on Monday evening
07:05:27 <Eric (7)> Hi Dave and nice..County fairs are usually pretty fun.
07:05:37 <Eric (7)> Castle?
07:06:04 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle was @ 0353 maj
07:06:21 <Eric (7)> hmmm, ya, so probably not, but that is a lot of steam
07:06:49 <Betty> I´m getting ready to go to Thomas´ 50th anniversary party :-)
07:08:55 <ynpvisitor45> Did anyone get an overnight BH?
07:09:17 <ynpvisitor999®> nope
07:09:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
07:10:24 <Betty> viewing wasn´t too bad, so maybe a longer interval
07:10:30 <Dave from B™> BH overheated yesterday so it is sleeping in a bit today
07:18:01 <ynpvisitor999®> SC soon
07:19:11 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
07:34:53 <ynpvisitor999®> fluffy
07:36:19 <Dave from B™> DG, you are the SC expert. Does it continuously erupt every 2 hours or does it erupt in series?
07:37:34 <ynpvisitor999®> last fall (and winter of 2016) it appeared to erupt in 'series', where regular 2h intervals were separated by sometimes days long intervals. As of now it appears to erupt about every 2h
07:37:54 <Dave from B™> Thanks
07:40:02 <ynpvisitor999®> I could go into more detail on this from what I've observed, but I think I'll save that up for when they ask for new descriptions of the new GOSA website
07:47:43 <GO GIANT & F&M> you could write up a short article for the SPut DG, always looking for new authors
07:48:06 <GO GIANT & F&M> and good for the GOSA page too, Will asked for help with that recently.
07:48:51 <Betty> time to head to the birthday party, enjoy the geysers
07:48:54 <GO GIANT & F&M> must be old, went out for a walk and groceries, saw a nice close Grey Herron at the pond, reached for my camera ... turns out I took the battery pack and not my phone
07:49:09 <ynpvisitor999®> have fun, Betty
07:49:38 <ynpvisitor999®> strong GHP 0932
07:49:44 <GO GIANT & F&M> now we know why Betty hasnt seen Giotto ... shes always at parties or festivals, or out skiing
07:51:10 <GO GIANT & F&M> 8-15h between good hot periods?
07:52:25 <GO GIANT & F&M> time for F&M watch :)
07:52:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy

08:09:19 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:10:01 <Dave from B™> Thanks DG
08:11:00 <GO GIANT & F&M> i can send text
08:13:05 <ynpvisitor53> Interesting interval. No quite long enough for a double.
08:13:27 <ynpvisitor110> Getting ready for Eric's visit
08:13:56 <Dave from B™> It's pretty hard to miss an eruption at night with so many capture experts
08:14:06 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin
08:14:31 <GO GIANT & F&M> it is new moon tho, ... but if split cone can be found then BH should be visible
08:14:38 <Kevin L™> My computer was just starting. Great timing.
08:16:09 <Kent> Text caught me once again. A good thing. Thanks Graham
08:16:12 <Kevin L™> Now if I can just get started. One of those nights where I could not sleep.
08:16:19 <GO GIANT & F&M> yw
08:16:48 <Kevin L™> Yes, ty Graham. I take back half the bad things I said about you when the caps won.
08:16:54 <GO GIANT & F&M> BH looked quietearlier today, not sure what its up to
08:17:18 <GO GIANT & F&M> Adam is out there, may have been there for a loooonnnggggg time
08:17:31 <Kevin L™> Watch this be one of those pesky mid cycle eruptions.
08:17:43 <GO GIANT & F&M> he watches for BHI at night
08:17:52 <ynpvisitor999®> or just a straight up 40m+ Indy
08:18:18 <GO GIANT & F&M> usually the mid cycle false indicators would have ended by now and weaker i think
08:18:45 <GO GIANT & F&M> my money is on a long interval
08:19:52 <Kevin L™> I agree. Too tall for a mid cycle.
08:20:31 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
08:21:13 <GO GIANT & F&M> where is Kitt?
08:21:55 <Kent> Nice clean start. No pussyfooting
08:22:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Bee showers!
08:23:07 <Kevin L™> Beautiful. Plume area people probably have great rainbows.
08:25:36 <ynpvisitor999®> that was a good one
08:25:46 <Dave from B™> Alright...move along...shows over
08:26:05 <Kevin L™> Great wake up.
08:26:13 <Kevin L™> Thanks again for the text.
08:30:05 <Dave from B™> Anyone know the peak time for meteor shower tonight?
08:30:59 <ynpvisitor999®> last night peak time was 11m after midnight. I suspect it'll be around that time tonight too
08:31:19 <ynpvisitor999®> (I do have to note that the peak lasted about 7m that night)
08:32:19 <Kevin L™> The Perseid meteor shower is expected to peak this weekend with 100 or more meteors per hour. The best time to look is during the dark hours before sunrise on Sunday, August 12th, and again on Monday, August 13th.
08:32:32 <Kevin L™> Per
08:33:14 <Kevin L™> Sky map:
08:33:26 <Dave from B™> before sunrise....grr....I was hoping after sunset...Thanks,, you are thinking 2-4 am?
08:34:00 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the map, Kevin
08:34:24 <Kevin L™> I would think you would be able to see them most of the night but 2-4 should be great viewing.
08:35:08 <GO GIANT & F&M> bet they llook awesome from the Steamboat Platform :
08:35:11 <GO GIANT & F&M> :)
08:36:12 <Dave from B™> Nice try, Graham:D
08:37:25 <Kevin L™> He will be teaching his dog the backstroke Graham.
08:38:21 <Kevin L™> Nice. A 2 digit high forecast for us this week!
08:38:49 <GO GIANT & F&M> hehe.......actually I like to lay back on the Giant platform and look up at the night sky at new moon
08:39:20 <GO GIANT & F&M> the starscape is amazing
08:40:08 <GO GIANT & F&M> i am going to be there at Full Moon next trip and havent seen Giant or Steamboat with full moon before ...
08:40:54 <Kevin L™> We had about 200 of us that went to the ElDorado Dry Lake to see Halley's comet about 0200. Had planned to watch until daylight and then cook a great breakfast. Had everything set up and discovered nobody brought matches.
08:42:03 <GO GIANT & F&M> wow i guess the anti-smoking lobby is working
08:48:18 <GO GIANT & F&M> GT and VEC predictions for OF are different ... at least off by more than usual
08:48:58 <GO GIANT & F&M> looks like VEC is 4m earlier than normal?
09:16:42 <ynpvisitor6> That is a very odd OF entry, time based off the next prediction.
09:17:07 <ynpvisitor6> If in basin, why not observe it?
09:17:54 <ynpvisitor6> No secondary wc time either, odd
09:17:55 <Dave from B™> Is Sam a ranger or does he only like OF?
09:18:37 <GO GIANT & F&M> no wc time?
09:18:57 <Dave from B™> Graham, that is a unique way to gather Artemesia data!
09:19:04 <GO GIANT & F&M> I think for the last prediction they only used 1h30m, not 34.
09:19:27 <ynpvisitor6> So his time could be way off
09:19:50 <ynpvisitor6> No idea who that is
09:20:01 <GO GIANT & F&M> i think it was ie then, but i wasnt paying attention for start time
09:20:18 <ynpvisitor6> 83 in the basin already
09:20:35 <GO GIANT & F&M> at least the prediction matches the NPS one
09:20:52 <ynpvisitor6> Just noticed what an odd entry it was
09:21:07 <GO GIANT & F&M> should really go in as an A
09:21:28 <GO GIANT & F&M> but if someone gets a wc start time it will over-ride it on GT
09:21:46 <ynpvisitor6> No wc entry
09:22:08 <ynpvisitor6> Not a big deal, just odd
09:23:31 <ynpvisitor999®> as far as I know, VEC predicts OF with a 1h34m interval. Subtracting that from the predicted time should give you the start time according to them. I sometimes do that too, but I then enter them as A rather than ns
09:23:59 <ynpvisitor6> His posts on GT are all over the place. Some in basin, some wc on same day
09:31:20 <ynpvisitor58> Must be a full moon. Odd GT postings, and ground workers steeling air planes.
09:31:55 <Dave from B™> That's some joy ride
09:32:13 <ynpvisitor58> Add that Seattle is full of military and they had to scramble fighters out of Portland.
09:32:48 <ynpvisitor58> Has to be the moon, or something in the water?
09:33:17 <ynpvisitor58> Aurum water maybe? it seems to be wacky also.
09:42:25 <ynpvisitor58> Wow, not even a spit cone. Hope you have better luck. Enjoy lion.
09:44:07 <Dave from B™> SC is overdue
10:12:43 <ynpvisitor999®> SC probably went already
10:12:50 <ynpvisitor27> must be the meteor effect as full moon is weeks away
10:15:20 <GO GIANT & F&M> were you napping DG?
10:15:29 <GO GIANT & F&M> daisy
10:15:46 <ynpvisitor27> no cam op?
10:15:57 <Dave from B™> Yep...I think DG slept thru the whole entire SC eruption:)
10:16:13 <GO GIANT & F&M> missed the 10' bursts?
10:16:28 <Dave from B™> Time to head home. Enough working on my day off. Have a great Saturday everyone! Good luck catching the meteor shower!
10:16:28 <ynpvisitor27> why are we so far away from Daisy?
10:16:59 <ynpvisitor27> stay cool Dave
10:17:07 <GO GIANT & F&M> i am about 1800 miles away ... i put that down to stupidity on my part
10:17:25 <ynpvisitor27> yet controls to get closer right in your hand
10:17:49 <GO GIANT & F&M> i will still be the same distance away
10:18:13 <ynpvisitor27> too late now
10:18:34 <GO GIANT & F&M> i woiuld prpobably be at F&M anyway
10:18:55 <ynpvisitor27> seems like Saturday afternoon would be a good time for a cam op
10:18:58 <GO GIANT & F&M> and maybe see it over the ridge, but in this heat maybe not
10:19:23 <ynpvisitor27> Will is there, he will not let it go unnoticed
10:20:06 <GO GIANT & F&M> no in-park post. my guess is after the good hot period a lot left down basin and sime at F&M
10:20:23 <GO GIANT & F&M> Will would have posted it already
10:20:26 <ynpvisitor27> tara came up for BH
10:20:41 <ynpvisitor27> I mean IF it happens, Will would let us know, not that it is happening
10:21:02 <GO GIANT & F&M> yeah people with bikes often bike up
10:21:15 <GO GIANT & F&M> i dont usually have that option
10:21:42 <GO GIANT & F&M> oh, i thought you meant Daisy
10:22:05 <GO GIANT & F&M> not sure what Will is up to, he hasnt been watching geysers as much this year. I expect he is down basin
10:24:24 <GO GIANT & F&M> i expect someone will watch Giant now too since its been 3h although nobody posted Daisy
10:27:53 <ynpvisitor27> maybe Giant is moving back to 10 day + cycles...
10:28:24 <ynpvisitor27> in past weeks, everyone would be on SB watch...
10:28:44 <ynpvisitor27> SteveO must have left again, no posts from him lately
10:29:10 <GO GIANT & F&M> hard to tell when Giant will go, it could go any day bt its statistically shorter interval than usual at the moment.
10:30:07 <ynpvisitor27> no SB notes
10:30:28 <GO GIANT & F&M> everyone is watching the steamboat recovery before committing to a sit there.
10:31:37 <GO GIANT & F&M> its about a couple of months now that Steamboat was in short interval mode
10:32:14 <GO GIANT & F&M> but 14 days is good if thats going to be the new norm
10:37:06 <GO GIANT & F&M> of
10:45:34 <GO GIANT & F&M> looks like VEC called that last OF a short?
10:45:52 <GO GIANT & F&M> i wasnt paying attention
10:46:22 <GO GIANT & F&M> 28m difference in predictions
11:18:50 <GO GIANT & F&M> Will posted Deleted Teakettle - looks like he is going to Grand
11:19:18 <GO GIANT & F&M> Jim posted Gizmo, he is headed there too I think
11:19:46 <GO GIANT & F&M> Will already posted Turban ... so i guess i am behind the game
11:41:49 <GO GIANT & F&M> of
11:42:00 <GO GIANT & F&M> guess VEC was right
11:46:02 <GO GIANT & F&M> Grand
11:47:53 <GO GIANT & F&M> chance of 5 in 24h for the next one
11:51:31 <GO GIANT & F&M> 8m....
11:52:10 <GO GIANT & F&M> guess it never stopped
11:57:03 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q | 11m35s
12:04:08 <GO GIANT & F&M> is anyone watching for Split Cone? :)
12:04:17 <GO GIANT & F&M> dont want to miss it
12:05:06 <GO GIANT & F&M> up to 89, warm again
12:05:08 <ynpvisitor999®> assuming it kept doing its 2h intervals, 1530±30m
12:06:15 <GO GIANT & F&M> did we miss another one?
12:06:43 <ynpvisitor999®> most likely, 4h47m since last entry
12:07:21 <GO GIANT & F&M> last was 2h22 and there have been 3h also
12:11:58 <GO GIANT & F&M> now 92
12:12:55 <GO GIANT & F&M> Grotto started a few minutes ago but you cant see anything
12:13:43 <ynpvisitor89> 92° is a ridiculous temperature for the UGB! There ought to be a law :p
12:15:28 <ynpvisitor89> That's 33.33°~ in Betty and DG ville
12:17:01 <GO GIANT & F&M> its a dry heat tho
12:17:23 <ynpvisitor999®> that'd be a bit more handable than humid heat
12:18:40 <ynpvisitor89> ~~~~~
12:18:56 <GO GIANT & F&M> 89 feels like 106, dew point 71 here. its sticky
12:19:11 <GO GIANT & F&M> feels like 96, sorry
12:19:50 <ynpvisitor89> Humidity gets above 20% and I think I am going to die.
12:20:44 <GO GIANT & F&M> 56% humidity
12:21:15 <ynpvisitor89> I am something of a temperature wimp. Whip me, beat me make me write bad checks, but don't turn off the air conditioning.
12:21:53 <GO GIANT & F&M> 24% humidity in Vegas, unbearable
12:22:15 <GO GIANT & F&M> i do live near the swamp tho
12:22:39 <ynpvisitor999®> meanwhile, average humidity in the Netherlands is about 75-80%
12:23:02 <GO GIANT & F&M> even when its hot?
12:23:07 <ynpvisitor89> :)
12:23:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I think when it was 90°F+ the humidity was about 60% near the coast, about 20% lower further landinwards
12:24:28 <GO GIANT & F&M> well yoiu have cooled off now
12:25:07 <ynpvisitor999®> basically you didn't have to do anything and you'd be almost swimming in your own sweat
12:25:42 <GO GIANT & F&M> thats why we stay indoors in summer
12:28:03 <ynpvisitor999®> it's 59°F at the moment. Oh, indoors doesn't work here either, as almost no-one has an A/C. All houses are designed to retain their heat here and thus it's fairly easy to end up with temperatures of 90°F+ at day and only slightly lower at night
12:30:14 <GO GIANT & F&M> so were you sleeping outside?
12:31:03 <ynpvisitor999®> nope. I managed to sleep a bit with an ice block in my neck and a loud fan at speed 1
12:31:53 <ynpvisitor89> I wonder if chickens sweat?
12:32:46 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
12:33:16 <GO GIANT & F&M> yeah its still alive
12:33:16 <ynpvisitor73> They do when they see that guy coming with a hatchet.
12:33:26 <ynpvisitor89> :)
12:33:34 <GO GIANT & F&M> no wonder we missed it before
12:33:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:37:49 <GO GIANT & F&M> do you think SC was a start time of just ie?
12:38:16 <ynpvisitor999®> start time, as there weren't any splashes before that time
12:38:42 <GO GIANT & F&M> can you see splashes when its zoomed out now?
12:38:50 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
12:39:39 <GO GIANT & F&M> just seems a huge coincidence it starts as trhe cam zoomes in
12:40:18 <ynpvisitor999®> it wants to be seen by a larger audience :D
12:53:47 <ynpvisitor18> SB note posted
12:55:36 <GO GIANT & F&M> thanks. glad the waters back
12:56:27 <ynpvisitor63> That bug needs legs.
13:01:15 <ynpvisitor8> so DG what is your SB prediction
13:03:18 <ynpvisitor999®> if I only have to base SB's interval off of two intervals and have to assume the Norris cycle lasts about 14d, I'd say 19 August 2018 @ 0210±24h (14d12h±24h window)
13:03:38 <ynpvisitor999®> though don't take my word for it
13:05:02 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe I should put a confidence percentage in there next time :)
13:06:41 <ynpvisitor8> Is there any value od predicting it using cistern fill?
13:07:00 <ynpvisitor8> od=of
13:08:21 <GO GIANT & F&M> I am going for the 20th
13:08:36 <ynpvisitor999®> so far I haven't quite compared Cistern fill and following interval, though I don't think there's a clear relationship between Cistern fill and resulting SB interval
13:08:39 <GO GIANT & F&M> no, 21st
13:08:47 <GO GIANT & F&M> 10 days from now
13:09:03 <ynpvisitor999®> for how long, Graham?
13:09:06 <ynpvisitor8> I'll miss it I arrive the 22nd
13:09:10 <GO GIANT & F&M> just based on todays splashing report
13:09:23 <ynpvisitor999®> oops, read that message wrong
13:09:36 <GO GIANT & F&M> sorry #8
13:10:07 <GO GIANT & F&M> but i hope its earlier
13:10:20 <GO GIANT & F&M> will be interesting to see how it progresses
13:11:46 <GO GIANT & F&M> we need Giant and F&M today tho
13:18:01 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Enjoy SC and watching the treeline in the background
13:18:16 <GO GIANT & F&M> I see Tara is on Bijou watch
13:18:25 <GO GIANT & F&M> bye DG
13:18:29 <GO GIANT & F&M> stay warm :)
13:35:46 <GO GIANT & F&M> 94 now
14:55:05 <ynpvisitor102> Temp monitor must have moved into the shade
14:55:45 <GO GIANT & F&M> i hate it when they move around like that

16:15:33 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
16:27:43 <GO GIANT & F&M> i guess the peeps at Giant move to F&M
16:28:02 <GO GIANT & F&M> or get something to eat
16:31:53 <Kevin L™> Or take a nap
16:37:42 <Betty> hi
16:38:02 <GO GIANT & F&M> morning
16:38:03 <Kevin L™> hi
16:38:52 <GO GIANT & F&M> how was the party?
16:39:33 <Betty> a good one
16:40:25 <Betty> but we could have needed the warmth of the latest nights. it was pretty cold after sunset
16:41:34 <Betty> SC
16:42:03 <Kevin L™> Cold?
16:42:18 <Betty> yep

17:36:49 <GO GIANT & F&M> .
17:38:14 <GO GIANT & F&M> if it was 1836 start then its 24h exact for 5
17:41:45 <Kevin L™> Is that hot water in the air?
17:41:58 <GO GIANT & F&M> yep
17:42:19 <GO GIANT & F&M> and 3 intervals under 5h, so it could be 5 in 24h next time
17:43:13 <GO GIANT & F&M> nice water
17:44:18 <Kevin L™> 8m
17:46:09 <Kevin L™> Don't think this will be a 3b.
17:48:52 <Kevin L™> Timing is everything.
17:49:26 <ynpvisitor37> :lol:
17:50:52 <GO GIANT & F&M> run out of letters?

19:07:03 <ynpvisitor27> ooh, F & M event cycle, go F & M
19:07:30 <ynpvisitor27> sounds like it is in progress
19:24:27 <ynpvisitor27> oh well, no F & M post. sounded promising
19:24:43 <ynpvisitor27> OF ie
19:25:02 <ynpvisitor27> DG might see a lot of meteors tonight if the smoke stays away
19:28:05 <Kevin L™> Be interesting to see what BH does tonight.
20:17:56 <ynpvisitor45> Time for BH, too bad it is dark.
20:24:30 <ynpvisitor23> Well, that was interesting - at least they could have pointed the flashlight towards fluffy
20:55:15 <ynpvisitor23> OF ie
20:55:52 <ynpvisitor23> probably close to start based on column height
20:56:54 <ynpvisitor23> by the way, not sure if I have a delay on my webcam feed
20:58:08 <ynpvisitor23> and OF is just about done
