03:28:16 <Rice> Wow only 5 poeple on this morning
04:20:05 <Rice> Steamy Bee
04:36:54 <ynpvisitor25> Daisy
05:14:58 <Dave from B™> Good morning Rice and all numbers smaller than 115 and to ynp as well
05:31:57 <Rice> Nice Lighting today
05:32:11 <Rice> You can tell the season is winding down, small crowd
05:35:58 <ynpvisitor97> It’s a bit chilly Rice, and early. The crowds will be plenty big today, start of Labor Day weekend.
05:39:49 <Dave from B™> YTG FB page said this is the 1 week lull before seniors with no kids begin travelling
05:40:00 <ynpvisitor97> Will Giant and F&M go today, or keep the gazers captive a while longer
05:40:50 <Dave from B™> I've already struck out twice, so I'll let someone else predict today
05:41:12 <ynpvisitor97> September is a busy month anymore. This weekend with nice weather will be very busy.
05:41:12 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
05:41:30 <Bill> Morning!
05:41:32 <Bill> Heading to UGB here in a few min, then I'll be at NGB later in the day.
05:41:42 <ynpvisitor999®> nice!
05:41:48 <ynpvisitor97> I thought Giant would go days ago
05:42:26 <ynpvisitor999®> I think SB will have a short interval again (maybe <7d12h?) based on strong Cistern overflow already
05:43:05 <ynpvisitor97> Once Giant erupts, the gazer crowd will migrate there
05:44:10 <ynpvisitor999®> that's a large plume
05:44:23 <ynpvisitor99> Yes it is!
05:44:28 <ynpvisitor999®> very dense too
05:44:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto
05:44:57 <ynpvisitor99> Chat to Jim, come in Jim :)
05:47:17 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jimbo
05:47:30 <Jimbo Nitrogen> good morning
05:48:31 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Betty
05:49:09 <Jimbo Nitrogen> So this morning is entitled "Waiting for Beehive"?
05:49:47 <ynpvisitor999®> more-or-less. I'm also keeping an eye on YNM though, as Cistern was in strong overflow already yesterday
05:50:02 <Jimbo Nitrogen> saw that
05:51:07 <Betty> Morning all, afternoon DG. Hi Jimbo
05:51:21 <Jimbo Nitrogen> Hello
05:51:35 <ynpvisitor111> Good Morning Betty
05:51:56 <Betty> Hi 111
05:52:17 <Dave from B™> How many of the Big 4 will erupt this holiday weekend (between 1600 today and 1600 Monday)?
05:52:21 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
05:52:35 <Betty> Hey Dave
05:53:00 <ynpvisitor999®> if I have to solely base a prediction on how the last Cistern refill took shape, I'd say best (or first, rather) chance for SB will be around 2354 today
05:53:08 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
05:53:31 <Dave from B™> So, no evidence of a disturbance yet?
05:53:54 <Betty> Did Morning have another eruption or was it a one hit wonder?
05:54:24 <ynpvisitor999®> no notes on that yesterday or today, so I'd assume there'll be no disturbance in the next couple of hours, if at all
05:56:57 <ynpvisitor999®> best chance on Giant will probably be today (or tomorrow), based on how the Giant 'series' are progressing. F&M sometime over the weekend (personally I think between now and Sunday) and as for Morning, no idea. Would be a nice bonus (as any other infrequent geyser *cough* Giantess *cough*)
05:57:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Don't take my word for any of this. Use it as you like, though
05:58:17 <ynpvisitor76> Grotto has been impressive this morning
05:59:07 <ynpvisitor999®> only 34°F
05:59:55 <ynpvisitor999®> little improvement on SB overnight
06:00:41 <Betty> Time to get some afternoon coffee. Enjoy BH
06:00:50 <ynpvisitor999®> enjoy your coffee
06:01:56 <ynpvisitor61> A nice crispy morning, good light
06:02:25 <ynpvisitor111> Lovely and still as well
06:04:15 <ynpvisitor61> A large animal (not human) would complete the picture >(
06:05:00 <ynpvisitor111> I'm ready for the Wolves to run across the snow
06:05:44 <ynpvisitor76> I'd settle for the return of the four o'clock coyote
06:06:08 <ynpvisitor111> Yes, He as well.
06:17:31 <Dave from B™> DG, did Betty give you the button?
06:20:36 <Jimbo Nitrogen> I am still air
06:23:18 <ynpvisitor61> Jimbo, are you 0.937% Argon?
06:28:17 <Jimbo Nitrogen> Just about
06:29:26 <ynpvisitor61> We need to talk about you CO2 problem, though
06:34:52 <ynpvisitor999®> I was given the Bee button, but I don't see the button at the moment. Guess that's what you get when you use buttons the size of a pinhead
06:37:36 <Dave from B™> I think it fell into your keyboard
06:37:55 <ynpvisitor999®> most likely
06:39:46 <ynpvisitor999®> Pink Cone's in daylight again
06:51:16 <Dave from B™> :!: Press here
06:54:10 <Dave from B™> lc should be on the hill
06:56:44 <ynpvisitor97> lc must be chilly this morning
07:03:37 <Rice> I keep pressing that button Dave put up, but nothing is happening!
07:03:50 <ynpvisitor999®> nor here
07:04:12 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm still trying to find the pinhead button that'll start Indy or Bee
07:08:26 <ynpvisitor999®> steam curtain!
07:10:11 <Dave from B™> I found more buttons...try these :!::!::!::!::!:
07:11:10 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
07:11:32 <Dave from B™> lc posted he is sitting on Aurum until BHI
07:12:18 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin
07:14:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum 0912
07:14:45 <Jimbo Nitrogen> I thought I saw something
07:15:27 <Dave from B™> nice
07:15:57 <Kevin L™> It was waiting for me.
07:16:19 <Kevin L™> That is the 2nd Aurum today!
07:16:30 <Jimbo Nitrogen> Whole lotta steamin' goin' on
07:17:01 <Kevin L™> Looks like Riverside.
07:21:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion looks happy
07:27:52 <ynpvisitor50> maybe thats what BH is waitin on
07:35:05 <Dave from B™> we need a GO BEEHIVE from Graham
07:35:37 <Time for BH> A double Aurum?
07:40:32 <Betty> No bh yet?
07:40:35 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
07:40:46 <ynpvisitor999®> nope
07:40:52 <ynpvisitor999®> as in, no Bee yet
07:41:01 <Kevin L™> You are in time Betty but you missed Aurum.
07:41:16 <Betty> Bah
07:42:41 <Betty> Do we need a button push?
07:43:12 <Kevin L™> Maybe CPR
07:43:38 <Betty> Hahaha
07:44:25 <ynpvisitor50> ;)
07:46:44 <Kevin L™> When do you go home Betty?
07:47:43 <Betty> Tomorrow
07:48:26 <Kevin L™> Still raining?
07:48:45 <Betty> yep
07:49:24 <Kevin L™> Should have gone up there during that heat.
07:50:51 <Betty> I think the heat is gone now
07:51:16 <Kevin L™> I hope so. We are even down to the low 100's.
07:52:32 <Dave from B™> Another beautifyl day in MT:)
07:53:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
07:53:54 <Kevin L™> Dave, a day at 100° is considered beautiful!
07:54:35 <Time for BH> Water boils at 100
07:55:12 <Kevin L™> Depends if it is C or F
07:58:49 <ynpvisitor97> No Grand post on GT, SteveO is slacking or at Giant
07:59:43 <ynpvisitor97> Jim posts Bulger but not Grand?
08:00:17 <ynpvisitor97> Where is Spanker?
08:03:21 <Dave from B™> It looks like along the Firehole about where Grands main runoff comes in
08:09:47 <ynpvisitor25> INDY
08:09:50 <ynpvisitor25> .
08:09:50 <ynpvisitor25> .
08:09:51 <ynpvisitor25> .
08:10:19 <Time for BH> Delay
08:10:55 <Kevin L™> Do we need a text?
08:11:11 <ynpvisitor25> yes I cant login
08:11:27 <Betty> Woot
08:11:29 <Kevin L™> Will do
08:11:59 <Kevin L™> Done
08:12:07 <ynpvisitor25> Tks
08:15:08 <Time for BH> Not sure we will see much water?
08:16:22 <Kevin L™> My stream is buffering
08:16:41 <Betty> Mine is fine
08:16:54 <Time for BH> Buffering, or Boiling?
08:19:18 <ynpvisitor999®> ah. Looks like I've managed to find the pinhead-sized Bee button
08:19:30 <Kevin L™> Running slower than some some static cams.
08:19:43 <ynpvisitor999®> it was hiding in another computer
08:22:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand had, by the way, one of its shorter 1b eruptions - G1C | 9m33s
08:23:46 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
08:23:57 <ynpvisitor25> that crowd understands Bee showers
08:24:01 <Time for BH> waiting, wiating
08:24:02 <ynpvisitor999®> fluffy
08:24:04 <Dave from B™> Giant fuzzball
08:24:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Bee curtain!
08:26:15 <Betty> Fun
08:26:37 <Kevin L™> It sure is a tall one.
08:26:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep
08:28:59 <Jimbo Nitrogen> Everybody wants to get noticed
08:29:21 <Time for BH> Well, that was fun. Enjoy more Aurums
08:31:15 <Betty> Time for Dinner. Bye
08:31:34 <Kevin L™> bye
08:32:27 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Betty
08:34:06 <Dave from B™> Time to go down basin...its Biggie Friday!
09:32:12 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Bettysc
09:32:17 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
09:33:16 <ynpvisitor999®> those arrow keys...
09:38:25 <Dave from B™> Should be time for Grotto
09:39:50 <Kevin L™> Is Taylor surviving her puppy?
09:40:30 <Dave from B™> Yep...she got along great with the other 3. They were really tired by the time I got home last night
09:40:59 <Kevin L™> What kind is it?
09:43:16 <Dave from B™> a Shorkie....yorkie/shitsu mix
09:43:35 <Dave from B™> A think a Yathzee sounds better
09:43:50 <Kevin L™> Maybe a Farkle?
09:43:52 <Dave from B™> or a Yortsu
09:44:01 <Dave from B™> I love Farkle
09:45:24 <Kevin L™> I am with you. I like smaller dogs. Less hassle. I had a small terrier that was really tiny. Got it from the pound. When I got her she would fit in my jacket pocket.
09:45:48 <Kevin L™> Farkle is fun. I like it better than Yathzee.
09:46:41 <Kevin L™> I don't remember what I named that dog but every one kept saying that it wasn't a dog, it was a mouse. The name Mouse stuck.
09:50:20 <ynpvisitor25> Daisy
09:55:22 <Dave from B™> I never thought I would like owning dogs but the last 3 years have been a blast...just need to figure out how to travel with them on occasion
09:56:42 <Rice> Taking Dogs to NP's is difficult, we looked into it last summer, and decided not too.
09:57:28 <Kevin L™> That can make things difficult. More complicated than kids.
09:57:37 <Rice> Cant leave them at campground, cant take them on board walks.
09:57:59 <Rice> Kids I can duct tape up, and leave in camper, HAHAHA
09:59:24 <Kevin L™> We did use a leash on the kids at Yellowstone when they were small.
10:01:34 <Dave from B™> We will never take our dogs to YNP.... and I'm not thrilled about putting them on a plane either, especially since it is expensive
10:11:50 <Dave from B™> Our Oregon Coast trip was a perfect opprtunity for a dog trip but we flew home
10:17:10 <Jimbo Nitrogen> If anyone wants to watch one more tidal bore, the boats have arrived:
10:17:55 <Jimbo Nitrogen> Looks like a big fleet today
10:23:02 <Dave from B™> Go Lion
10:41:39 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome has started its series
10:42:59 <Dave from B™> So, if Giant goes will wine and cheese party move to Norris?
10:46:16 <Kevin L™> If it doesn't go there may be a whine and cheese party
10:52:03 <ynpvisitor87> Good one Kevin! It will be a whine and cheese party if Giant doesn’t erupt for sure
10:55:01 <ynpvisitor87> I don’t think NPS would be down with a party at NGB
10:55:56 <Kevin L™> I think they would frown on it. I wonder if they have become more tolerant there now.
10:56:13 <ynpvisitor87> Not about food
11:40:31 <ynpvisitor999®> SC
11:40:35 <ynpvisitor999®> ie
11:41:59 <Kevin L™> Fundy filling fast.
11:48:43 <Jimbo Nitrogen> It does that (I noticed there's a slider - you can slide it back in time to see where the water level was).
11:48:55 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ns
11:51:16 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
11:55:16 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
11:55:23 <ynpvisitor999®> I think
11:55:45 <ynpvisitor999®> unless it just splash-delayed itself by a couple of hours there
11:56:08 <ynpvisitor35> i see nothing
11:56:24 <ynpvisitor999®> nope, it just splash-delayed itself :(
11:56:45 <ynpvisitor999®> looked promising though
12:23:27 <Kevin L™> Daisy
12:30:03 <ynpvisitor999®> very strong GHP 1409
12:30:39 <Dave from B™> said it almost was REAL close
12:30:50 <ynpvisitor999®> if only...
12:34:44 <ynpvisitor35> Dave are you headed to Giant?
12:37:12 <Dave from B™> nope...taking monthly inventory
12:38:07 <ynpvisitor107> Lc ie
12:38:31 <ynpvisitor23> hopefully it will not be dark when it finally decides to erupt
12:42:05 <Betty> I‘m glad when I can use my own wifi again
12:42:46 <Betty> This hotel wifi kicks me out too often
12:46:46 <ynpvisitor999®> is that a lizard?
12:46:50 <ynpvisitor87> Betty, are you on vacation now?
12:47:27 <Betty> Almost over. I‘m in Italy
12:48:30 <ynpvisitor87> And you get to come to YNP in two weeks? That’s a lot of vacation. Lucky woman.
12:48:45 <Kevin L™> Stinking Italian WiFi!
12:48:52 <Betty> Yep.
12:49:00 <Betty> Hi Kevin
12:49:10 <Kevin L™> No wonder you didn't get pretzels. How about pizza?
12:49:31 <Betty> Yes for the Pizza
12:49:48 <ynpvisitor999®> and it looks like Lion delayed itself again... :(
12:49:49 <Betty> And noodles
12:50:01 <Kevin L™> Pine nuts?
12:50:14 <Kevin L™> May be too early for those though.
12:50:28 <Betty> I have 30 days of holiday per year
12:51:47 <Betty> If you plan properly you can do a lot of things
12:52:14 <ynpvisitor35> I had about that when I was working, now that I'm retired I don't get any time off. :)
12:52:34 <Kevin L™> You are so right 35!
12:52:46 <ynpvisitor76> I'll give you an amen on that
12:52:55 <Betty> :-D
12:52:59 <Kevin L™> Everyone thinks you are doing nothing and they have something to fill your time...
12:54:19 <Betty> All people I know they are retired I need an appointment to see them!
13:02:27 <Betty> Time for sleep, night all
13:02:40 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
13:02:52 <Kevin L™> Night
13:12:02 <ynpvisitor76> 1510 wc?
13:12:56 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
13:17:35 <ynpvisitor999®> NV's going vertical up to 25 feet, SV is yet to get there
13:18:23 <Kevin L™> If Micah was at Giant he would have gone vertical 25 feet!
13:45:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
13:45:49 <Kevin L™> :)
13:46:30 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... looks like Mastiff was the 'problem' with the 1409 GHP
13:55:28 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
13:56:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand's done done
13:58:30 <ynpvisitor999®> T1C | 10m01s
14:15:57 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like YVO's SB logger completely lost it... haha

15:49:24 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it a minor now, doesn't look like it'll try anytime soon.
16:03:35 <ynpvisitor85> :p missed 2 Aurums.
16:55:34 <ynpvisitor109> Lion ie
16:59:39 <Michael> I hope the folks at F&M get something to celebrate.
17:00:05 <ynpvisitor109> Either an F&M or a Giant.
17:14:09 <ynpvisitor24> No eruption of F&M per updated Event Cycle comment
18:00:35 <ynpvisitor109> Lion
18:40:41 <Michael> Seems like Giant wants to do everything but erupt the last two days.
18:45:58 <ynpvisitor109> Maybe it is waiting for the Labor Day crowd.
18:48:35 <Michael> Saturday 10:30am would be nice. With an eventful cycle at F&M afterwards.
18:49:08 <Michael> Steamboat on Monday, maybe?
18:49:56 <ynpvisitor109> Giant on Saturday, F&M on Sunday, and Steamboat on Monday.
18:50:56 <Michael> Sounds great, sign me up!
