04:28:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe Giant will wait a bit now after that strong hot period yesterday
05:15:40 <ynpvisitor25> Depression?
05:15:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes
05:33:05 <ynpvisitor1> OF
05:43:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> i guess the Steamboat 48h window is open .... lets see if it agrees
05:57:29 <ynpvisitor42> Daisy 0756
06:39:55 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin and all other Sat gazers
06:42:51 <ynpvisitor32> temp now 50 degrees
06:43:24 <Dave from B™> It's been raining in Blgs for a couple of hours:):):)
06:44:00 <ynpvisitor32> thnk you for the info
06:44:59 <Kevin L™> Morning
06:45:12 <ynpvisitor32> Morning
06:58:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> glad you have rain, hope theres more in and around the park
06:58:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe not over the Steamboaat platform
06:59:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> when is Eric arrivingin the park?
06:59:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> of
06:59:53 <Kevin L™> Sometime today.
07:00:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> heading right for Giant?
07:03:12 <Dave from B™> Graham, I'm not sure where he is headed after hearing that F&M went. I'm guessing he will check in at OFL first.
07:03:38 <Dave from B™> And, he will experience his first GHP very soon
07:03:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> Micah down at Grotto ..... bet he is on Giant watch again
07:04:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> 13h since the big hot period, could be time for another
07:05:13 <Dave from B™> Rocket should be shutting off Grotto soon
07:15:06 <ynpvisitor32> they had another small shaker about 10 minuets ago.
07:16:33 <Dave from B™> There have been no EQ in YNP today
07:16:54 <Dave from B™> Look at the quake map link to the right
07:17:41 <ynpvisitor32> The OF chart?
07:18:22 <Dave from B™>
07:18:34 <ynpvisitor32> Thank you.
07:19:18 <Dave from B™> Don't confuse noise on the seismograph as an EQ. Norris seismo picks up LOTS of noise from people driving in the parking lot
07:20:59 <ynpvisitor32> must be a sonic boom as it is at three monitors Canyon, Maple creek and Norris bore hole
07:25:23 <Dave from B™> There have been a few EQ's in CA just under 2. Seems too far away to register those
07:25:49 <ynpvisitor32> I agree
07:26:50 <Dave from B™> Castle ie
07:27:36 <ynpvisitor32> cool
07:28:51 <lc> morning
07:29:03 <Dave from B™> Morning lc
07:29:05 <ynpvisitor32> morning.
07:29:26 <BruceJ> Hi Folks
07:29:42 <Dave from B™> Morning BruceJ
07:29:47 <BruceJ> So...Giant AND Steamboat today?
07:29:48 <lc> hey Bruce, glad you got SB
07:30:21 <BruceJ> Thanks LC - it was a nice payoff to a mentally stimulating ordeal!
07:30:39 <BruceJ> LC, did you get one yet?
07:30:52 <lc> I know you put the time in.
07:31:05 <Dave from B™> Bruce, I'm thinking neither today
07:31:05 <lc> yes, July 6
07:31:21 <lc> lucked into it.
07:31:23 <BruceJ> Awesome! So Dave, why neither?
07:31:53 <lc> my guess SB late tonight.
07:32:19 <lc> and Giant this afternoon.
07:32:48 <Dave from B™> I think we're a day early on Giant. Steamboat will erupt when it feels like it. lc, I hope you're right
07:32:53 <BruceJ> My sense on SB is that it's likely a little too soon - but that sput can go zero to 60 in 5 minutes, so I'd never bet on it.
07:33:59 <lc> need SB tonight or tomorrow to set it up for our trip.
07:34:48 <lc> BTW, Dave congrats to you and M.
07:35:20 <lc> I know its tomorrow but you will be traveling, right?
07:35:45 <BruceJ> I'd be surprised, but not shocked, if Giant went by sundown. SB is still in beta mode following the June disturbance, IMHO, and I would not put ANYTHING past it. Each eruption beings a new twist, and a variant to the pattern whatever that may be.
07:35:59 <Dave from B™> Thanks, lc! We leave Monday. Tomorrow, we are celebrating Becca and her last good dinner for awhile.
07:36:26 <BruceJ> Congratulations - What's the occasion, Dave?
07:36:44 <lc> ok
07:36:55 <lc> 29th, right?
07:37:06 <Dave from B™> Bruce, 29th wedding anniversary
07:37:17 <lc> our 51th today.
07:37:27 <ynpvisitor32> Congratulations
07:37:27 <lc> yes Bruce
07:37:29 <Dave from B™> Congrats, lc
07:37:44 <BruceJ> !!!! Super! and LC, congrats to you to! Much love to you guys!
07:37:50 <Kevin L™> Congrats to both of you. I did 30th in June.
07:38:22 <BruceJ> My 31st was in July. Were were in Kauai.
07:38:23 <Dave from B™> I'm very blessed to have found such a great person to share my life.
07:38:37 <BruceJ> Hear hear! :heart:
07:38:45 <lc> as Graham said, we both got keepers.
07:39:06 <BruceJ> :thumbsup:
07:39:39 <lc> same here Dave and Ma REALLY takes care of me.
07:40:34 <ynpvisitor2> huge gate lines at both entrances on cam
07:41:00 <BruceJ> Speaking of keepers - if I am going to REMAIN ONE, I need to get going - mandatory stuff to do today :-) Have a great time, and go SB & Giant and Sawmill!
07:41:17 <Dave from B™> Thanks for stopping in, Bruce!
07:41:45 <lc> see you Bruce.
07:43:16 <lc> sure wish we could get updates from Norris.
07:44:50 <Dave from B™> Yep...just a touch of cell service would be great. HK discovered the working phone there. I wish we could get updated that way. But, it is hard to leave that platform!
07:45:35 <ynpvisitor3> it's like "before GT" - unless you are going there, we just have to wait
07:45:55 <ynpvisitor3> remember the "before GT" days and we have it good now
07:46:18 <Dave from B™> 3, I agree but it's tough to go back to the "dark ages":)
07:47:56 <lc> I totally agree, before GT, before radios. things have changed big time.
07:48:19 <ynpvisitor3> same as in the LGB really, no signal out there
07:48:51 <lc> should that Castle 'initial' be flagged?
07:53:06 <ynpvisitor64> The seismo will let everyone know if SB erupts, there’s at least that
07:54:50 <Dave from B™> lc, that is a tough question re Castle. Is there another entry for this Castle?
07:55:36 <lc> yes
07:55:48 <ynpvisitor64> Someone already flagged it. Maybe they will change it
07:55:56 <ynpvisitor64> Just a mistake
07:56:16 <ynpvisitor64> Dave are you getting rained on?
07:56:33 <Dave from B™>'s a 1 bucket rain so far
07:57:07 <ynpvisitor64> Looks like a good blob over Billings area
07:57:55 <Dave from B™> It's been raining over 3 hours now
07:58:51 <ynpvisitor64> It will green things up
08:01:31 <lc> taking a break, bbl.
08:02:29 <Dave from B™> We just need to lower the fire danger
08:04:09 <Kevin L™> Just had some waffles with maple syrup that the kid brought down from Canada. They were awesome.
08:06:57 <ynpvisitor88> The new Gardiner cam is a good addition. Thanks Eric
08:07:58 <Kevin L™> There is also a streaming verson:
08:08:57 <ynpvisitor88> Even better.
08:15:59 <Kevin L™> Time for some training.
08:16:20 <ynpvisitor9> are you learning to sell scents?
08:16:57 <ynpvisitor9> or do you mean time with trains?
08:20:30 <Dave from B™> I'm guessing trains
08:22:03 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
08:28:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
08:31:23 <ynpvisitor999®> OF 1030
08:35:07 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Mike
08:35:14 <Mike J> 6 days until my park visit - not that I'm counting
08:35:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
08:38:12 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
08:43:17 <ynpvisitor999®> 8m
08:44:20 <ynpvisitor999®> 9m
08:44:32 <ynpvisitor999®> probably going to be a 1b :(
08:46:23 <ynpvisitor9> odd cam choice
08:46:41 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done, ~11m
08:47:43 <ynpvisitor999®> how so, 9?
09:02:33 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
09:11:22 <Michael> Looking after too many monarch caterpillars this weekend. Let's see if I can miss Lion and Beehive too.
09:25:51 <Michael> Not quite as many now. A parent cardinal just fed one of them to its young.
09:43:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> good luck with your park visit Mike J - what are you trying to see?
09:44:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like you are not doing a good job there Michael, unless you are a bird lover. Cardinals are wonderful birds tho
09:49:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> 4 weeks today for me ... hope the Labor Day gazers dont wear them all out
09:52:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> LC
09:52:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> I see we have volcano cam is back, what happen to the Gardiner river cam?
09:53:11 <Michael> Fortunately there are enough that I don't feel too bad about the the birds picking off a few.
09:57:19 <Michael> I hope everyone who picked Steamboat over Giant today made the right call.
09:57:34 <Michael> OF
10:12:55 <Michael> Lion
10:19:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice for the afternoon, hope it isnt going to be 1 and done
10:30:52 <Michael> Beehive!
10:30:53 <Michael> .
10:30:54 <Michael> .
10:30:54 <Michael> .
10:31:04 <Michael> Missed the start.
10:33:34 <lori> no indy
10:33:36 <lori> ?
10:33:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> indi now
10:37:27 <ynpvisitor64> Maybe Indy was missed
10:38:03 <ynpvisitor64> No cam op on it to start
10:38:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> i didnt notice obvious steam but i am not an indi watcher
10:38:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Of course, Bee and Lion, of course
10:39:06 <ynpvisitor107> there was noindy before, just two BH splashes then eruption
10:39:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> wb
10:39:22 <ynpvisitor64> So did Giant stop having hot periods?
10:39:38 <ynpvisitor64> Nothing reported today.
10:40:04 <ynpvisitor107> indy started at 1232
10:40:05 <ynpvisitor999®> I assume they're at SB today, tomorrow and the day after
10:40:10 <Michael> I would gues few gazers are out there today. But maybe we'll get reports from Tara now.
10:40:22 <ynpvisitor64> Maybe they aren’t posting them, I hope they are continuing
10:40:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Micah caught the start of Bee
10:41:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> Tara was down basin, n comments about wateron the platform
10:41:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> and Micah around too
10:41:45 <ynpvisitor64> I see some posts now. Not sure why they weren’t there before
10:42:14 <ynpvisitor64> Looks like Micah got BH
10:42:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> they just uploaded to GT
10:45:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> i knew BH would erupt before 1300 as thats my shift start
10:46:28 <ynpvisitor64> Micah must not have refreshed his app
10:47:30 <ynpvisitor64> Glad to see something is happening. I’m still surprised he’s not at SB, as he has not seen it yet
10:48:55 <ynpvisitor107> Micah is working the 2 to 10 shift at the INN
10:49:14 <ynpvisitor64> Gotta love the Webbs. We see Lion on wc at 1212 yet they see it at 1213 in basin
10:49:26 <ynpvisitor107> until sunday i believe
10:50:00 <ynpvisitor64> Thanks 107, I thought he had the weekend off
10:51:13 <ynpvisitor64> Or rather Fri/Sat off
10:55:54 <ynpvisitor38> Has anyone heard from Eric yet?
11:01:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> I fixed Lion
11:03:11 <ynpvisitor64> How ? I thought in basin take priority
11:04:39 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe you need to mark it as initial, too, Graham?
11:05:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> they do, and it will stay right unless someone enters another Lion time and it will recalculate the one to display
11:05:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> it doesnt recalculate if you edit an entry
11:09:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> rainrops
11:10:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> and raindrops
11:14:22 <Yogi> Daisy
11:14:44 <Yogi> 1313 wc
11:25:11 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
11:30:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> lion
11:33:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> OF
11:34:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> short
11:34:30 <ynpvisitor999®> ~2m09s
11:36:14 <ynpvisitor2> Only 35 more minutes till the Steamboat window opens ;)
11:36:38 <Kevin L™> Did I miss anything?
11:37:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum didn't go, so you've missed nothing
11:37:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> i thought it was already open
11:37:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> which window is this?
11:37:27 <ynpvisitor2> The one where it actually erupts
11:37:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> you missed an F short Kevin, exciting
11:38:06 <ynpvisitor999®> 19 August 2018 @ 0210±24h is my low-confidence window
11:38:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> this is the Day 15 window?
11:38:21 <ynpvisitor999®> (14d12h±24h interval)
11:38:48 <ynpvisitor999®> Rocket?
11:38:59 <ynpvisitor2> Was thinking same thing
11:39:10 <Michael> That makes three of us.
11:40:21 <Kevin L™> Had to go fix a broken water line at Dad's house. It was to his cooling so couldn't put it off.
11:49:25 <ynpvisitor2> It was rocket, cool
11:49:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> confirmed Rocket
11:49:48 <Kevin L™> Is that smoke or rain?
11:50:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think its rain this time
11:50:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> we had a few drops earlier but sky is much darker now
11:50:31 <Kevin L™> BTW Graham, on the train ride today around a fourth of the people were wearing Golden Knights items.
11:52:49 <ynpvisitor4> Thick line on seismo yet not thick enough...
11:53:49 <ynpvisitor999®> unlikely it's SB
11:54:19 <ynpvisitor999®> most likely just background noise
11:54:20 <ynpvisitor4> Just humanity walking by
11:54:44 <Michael> But maybe it will be there on the next refresh...
11:55:03 <Kevin L™> Perhaps a couple sumo wrestlers?
11:55:05 <ynpvisitor4> Unless it was a minor major?
11:55:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> Eric arrived and is unning over?
11:55:50 <Kevin L™> Dave is the one unning SB
11:56:10 <ynpvisitor999®> no noise detectable by YNM is generated by minors
11:57:12 <ynpvisitor38> You rang?
12:10:41 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP 1403
12:24:42 <ynpvisitor32> smoke from fires. Wind at YS 10mp coming from the west.
12:30:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> drops from clouds
12:32:12 <ynpvisitor999®> hopefully that clears much of the smoke in the air
12:37:35 <ynpvisitor4> West Entrance has blue sky
12:37:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> lion
12:47:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> sc
12:58:49 <Betty> good afternoon
12:59:08 <Kevin L™> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
12:59:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> hi Betty. no party today?
12:59:52 <Betty> sure, I´m just back
13:01:42 <Betty> did an 11 km hike to a nice spot in the forest, where a friend of mine had his 60th birthday party.
13:02:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh, thats nice
13:02:26 <Betty> we placed a car there to get back
13:03:03 <Betty> now I need a shower
13:03:07 <Betty> bbs
13:05:40 <ynpvisitor38> I thought I smelled something:)
13:14:33 <Betty> that was me :-p
13:16:00 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a day. Have fun watching SC and YNM.
13:16:24 <Betty> night DG
13:20:11 <Betty> SC
13:20:41 <Betty> is it still ie? or a new one?
13:20:56 <Betty> 33 min since the last one
13:22:28 <ynpvisitor4> It says the temp is 51. I wonder how accurate that is?
13:23:33 <ynpvisitor32> Google say the temp there is 61
13:29:25 <ynpvisitor4> My app says 71.
13:31:04 <ynpvisitor3> one of them may be close
13:31:56 <Kevin L™> Do I hear 81?
13:32:01 <Kevin L™> Going once!
13:32:07 <Kevin L™> Going twice!
13:32:21 <Betty> bet you have 81
13:32:28 <Betty> at least
13:33:06 <ynpvisitor32> if it was 81 I would not be wearing a sweater.
13:33:13 <ynpvisitor32> or a coat
13:33:33 <Kevin L™> Would you believe 111°?
13:33:53 <ynpvisitor32> no I would not Keving not at YS
13:34:53 <ynpvisitor103> Depends on how close you stand to a hot spring.
13:38:03 <Betty> Lion

14:06:17 <Betty> LC
14:06:42 <Betty> I think
14:09:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> Tara must still be at Giant since she posted Daisy
14:16:00 <Kevin L™> Looks like I peaked at 112° today.
14:16:06 <Betty> headed out, bye all
14:16:20 <Kevin L™> Night Betty
14:16:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> bye Betty
14:16:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats good Kevin, maybe get under 110 sometime
14:17:34 <Kevin L™> I think this is the last gasp of Summer.
14:18:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> 2 more hours to 8/18/18 1818 its that time here now
14:18:40 <Kevin L™> Nice contrast
14:19:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> at 8/18/18 1818 EDT :)
14:20:10 <Kevin L™> That was pretty
14:22:01 <Kevin L™> Tonight is a fun race. They always have the driver's kids sing the National Anthem. Really fun.
14:23:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats cool
14:24:10 <Kevin L™> What is interesting there are a few drivers racing tonight that sang it when they were kids.
14:33:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> grand
14:44:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> may have missed Lion
15:26:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> i guess from Udo's note that Steamboat isnt going Vertical enough
15:27:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> hope Tara is staying dry down basin
15:47:54 <lori> something beind OF on the hill or just extra steamy?
15:51:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> humidity is up with the rain
15:53:07 <lori> I assumed, but ever hopeful I will spot something, lol
17:18:16 <Michael> OF
17:25:52 <ynpvisitor3> no eruption as of 1818 on 81818 :)
17:33:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> i m sure something erupted then
17:34:09 <ynpvisitor3> but not GO STEAMBOAT
17:34:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> so Eric made it there .. not staying overnght?
18:19:45 <ynpvisitor100> I think Eric is staying at the cabins. I bet he is tired about now. Long drive.
18:19:52 <ynpvisitor16> grotto ie?
18:24:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> Grotto?
18:25:37 <ynpvisitor100> Any spikes?
18:25:49 <ynpvisitor16> sure hope so
18:27:14 <ynpvisitor16> been an intermittent cloud there for the last 15 min at least
18:27:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> only down at Grotto
18:28:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe it was Rocket at 2024
18:29:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> goodnight all and i hope Steamboat waits till daylight
18:29:57 <ynpvisitor16> doubt anyone is there
18:30:22 <ynpvisitor100> Rocket would make sense.
18:45:52 <Kevin L™> Pink OF
20:18:02 <Michael> Is Lion going, or is that just OF runoff steam?
20:22:32 <Kevin L™> Looks like something out of Lion.
20:26:08 <Michael> Castle is going now too.
20:27:49 <Michael> I missed the start, but it must have been in the last 3-5 minutes.
20:29:28 <Michael> Thanks, JoeN, for posting the correct details of everything I only sort-of-see.
20:31:33 <Michael> Grand
20:31:35 <ynpvisitor107> Castle looks minor
20:31:43 <ynpvisitor107> Grand
20:33:05 <Michael> I could believe the Cstle minor. (At night I'm never more than 80% certain)
20:33:53 <ynpvisitor107> Michael, sorry for the slow response, had to go to computer, tablet posting on chat does not work for me
20:35:10 <Michael> No worries. Half the time I'm just thinking out loud here.
20:38:01 <Michael> And no sarcsm was intended. I catch a lot of things ie and am glad someone is posting the start time.
20:39:03 <ynpvisitor107> no problem, I just post what I happen to see.
20:41:54 <ynpvisitor107> 2nd
20:52:08 <ynpvisitor107> going back to the tablet :)
20:53:23 <Michael> I'll go back to talking to myself. :) Th ae steam over Grotto area is always just big enough to be interesting.
21:15:38 <ynpvisitor69> Looks like a no Indy BH. I hate those.
21:15:52 <ynpvisitor69> That was earlier
21:36:26 <Michael> OF
