03:07:54 <Rice> Very Dark this morning!
04:17:09 <ynpvisitor34> SC ie
06:22:50 <J. Deuterium> Pretty in the morning
06:23:13 <ynpvisitor28> Geysers in the mist
06:25:08 <J. Deuterium> This has got to be a long
06:25:25 <ynpvisitor34> yes
06:25:40 <J. Deuterium> it doesn't want to quit!
06:39:57 <ynpvisitor34> GRAND
06:40:36 <J. Deuterium> Light winds again, darn
06:47:15 <ynpvisitor34> 8min
06:48:49 <ynpvisitor34> pause
06:49:28 <ynpvisitor34> 2nd
06:51:39 <ynpvisitor59> Short 2nd
06:53:23 <ynpvisitor112> Grotto steam?
07:12:52 <J. Deuterium> It's so quiet here. Lion ending
07:13:29 <ynpvisitor34> just a minor, more to come
07:14:37 <J. Deuterium> Guess we can start the Beehive watch now
07:15:15 <ynpvisitor59> Looks like there are a few bored watchers there now.
07:17:32 <ynpvisitor34> Brian should mark Lion as a minor
07:20:12 <ynpvisitor...> Hey man, "heavy!"
07:28:45 <ynpvisitor59> Better
07:28:45 <ynpvisitor34> Lion
07:29:11 <J. Deuterium> sixth in the series, by my count
07:30:23 <ynpvisitor34> only 3 since 0633 ini
07:30:54 <ynpvisitor34> 0911 was a minor
07:42:56 <ynpvisitor102> Brian changed his Lion to a minor, please remove the flag now Joe. Also your Split Cone needs a wc after it.
07:43:11 <J. Deuterium> I didn't realize that the early morning was a 2 eruption series for Lion
07:43:28 <ynpvisitor102> Unless you transported to the basin
07:43:38 <ynpvisitor34> Removed will fix SC
07:43:47 <ynpvisitor102> Thanks
07:46:42 <Betty> morning all
07:47:36 <ynpvisitor34> Hi Betty, press the BHI button, please.
07:48:13 <Betty> nice splash there
07:50:11 <Betty> did Eric put a button in? nah, so it´s his fault
07:51:35 <ynpvisitor...> Good size ranger walk this morning
07:54:10 <Betty> ned to grab a coffee, then I´ll see what I can do with the button
07:54:16 <Betty> need*
07:56:27 <Eric> Here for BH, it can go now :-D
08:00:27 <Betty> Eric, we need a button emoji
08:03:24 <Betty> OF
08:04:38 <ynpvisitor...> Nice static!
08:16:26 <Eric> [Press Here]
08:26:27 <Betty> Daisy
09:18:49 <Betty> SC ie
09:19:18 <Eric> Please press the button now Betty :-D
09:19:29 <Time for BH> I see Kevin has not recovered from what bill did to his computer yesterday.
09:23:22 <ynpvisitor59> I think he was going to the races today.
09:24:39 <ynpvisitor17> is BH being BH?
09:25:19 <Eric> what was the camp on the hill next to daisy?
09:25:22 <Eric> wiley?
09:25:37 <ynpvisitor17> that was on the Grand side of the river
09:30:53 <ynpvisitor17> INDY
09:30:55 <ynpvisitor17> ding
09:30:57 <ynpvisitor17> dong
09:31:14 <ynpvisitor17> surprised I saw it and then Brian posted it so it must be true
09:31:17 <ynpvisitor17> where is Betty?
09:31:24 <Time for BH> Will it wait for that other geyser?
09:31:31 <ynpvisitor17> no idea
09:31:38 <ynpvisitor17> let's say YES
09:31:55 <ynpvisitor17> that other one looks ready
09:32:11 <Time for BH> Tell me when it is over
09:32:16 <Jeff in CT> Hoping for a double
09:32:27 <ynpvisitor17> no duals...please
09:32:46 <ynpvisitor17> duals are the worst for viewing BH
09:33:08 <ynpvisitor17> that was not a tall other one
09:33:21 <Jeff in CT> Its moot at this point, although the wind is blowing favorably to view both
09:33:31 <ynpvisitor17> let's see if it lingers to a long status
09:33:50 <ynpvisitor17> we are way farther away from BH when OF is erupting too
09:34:10 <ynpvisitor17> Do we have a cam op?
09:34:25 <ynpvisitor17> we might be watching BH from afar anyway
09:35:03 <ynpvisitor17> so it's a short, in height, but long, in length, OF
09:35:30 <ynpvisitor17> Time for BH, is there no cam op today?
09:35:46 <ynpvisitor59> I think today is Kevin's normal shift so unless another camop is running it it will be in the preset mode.
09:35:57 <Time for BH> I have no idea
09:36:00 <ynpvisitor17> too bad
09:36:13 <ynpvisitor17> would be a good time of day to have a close up
09:36:24 <ynpvisitor17> no Joe about?
09:37:51 <ynpvisitor...> I will point at BH unless someone else is operating???
09:37:54 <ynpvisitor17> maybe the text will bring us a cam op??
09:38:08 <ynpvisitor17> Kent, you are a web cam operator?
09:38:12 <ynpvisitor17> yes, please do.
09:38:20 <ynpvisitor...> Only a bit
09:38:34 <ynpvisitor17> great, Kevin is off, so your help would be greatly appreciated
09:38:42 <ynpvisitor107> Is indy ie?
09:38:48 <ynpvisitor17> yes, since 1127
09:39:11 <Eric> BH
09:39:18 <Eric> .
09:39:18 <ynpvisitor17> yeah, just in time
09:39:19 <Eric> .
09:39:19 <Eric> .
09:39:23 <Time for BH> wiating
09:39:32 <ynpvisitor17> need to back out a little now
09:39:33 <Time for BH> waiting
09:39:40 <Time for BH> weeeee
09:39:44 <ynpvisitor107> Bah. This is Betty. My internet connection died
09:39:58 <ynpvisitor17> too bad
09:40:24 <ynpvisitor107> It is
09:40:46 <ynpvisitor17> not a tall one at least Betty
09:41:59 <Time for BH> It is shrinking
09:42:21 <ynpvisitor17> like yesterday, nice, yet not tall
09:42:43 <ynpvisitor17> Thanks Kent, for the close up
09:42:46 <ynpvisitor59> Thanks camop
09:42:54 <Time for BH> The bees are cold, or miss Kevin
09:44:29 <Time for BH> Well that was fun. Good Lion watching.
09:47:01 <Betty> power outtage at the worst timing :-(
10:01:23 <Betty> my freezer passed away. really bad timing
10:04:48 <ynpvisitor59> No fun
10:07:07 <Betty> not at all. everything was full with fruit from the garden. no space at family freezers at all
10:08:31 <ynpvisitor59> That would have been horrible if it would have happened when you were in the US.
10:08:44 <Betty> yes
10:36:10 <Bill> I have some bad news to report. The Steamboat USGS logger will be down for a while until we can get a new temperature probe. The batteries for the Echinus logger should be on order today, and hopefully they can add some temperature probes with it.
10:37:05 <Betty> hi Bill
10:37:29 <Rice> To much hot water from Steamboat kill the probe?
10:37:39 <Bill> Hey there Betty!
10:38:44 <Bill> I doubt it. Likely the constant connecting and disconnecting screwed something up. I checked the connections today and there was nothing obviously wrong, but I'm pretty confident there's a problem with the connection going through the Pelican case.
10:39:39 <Rice> I was joking, that after all this time of doing "nothing" it couldn'g handle all the action.
10:40:55 <ynpvisitor38> Thanks Bill. Any idea on a timeline?
10:41:24 <Bill> Hopefully before it starts to really snow so I can easily get out there to replace it.
10:41:40 <Bill> The company has been dragging their feet.
10:44:10 <ynpvisitor38> thanks. Such a historic year of activity!
10:55:55 <Betty> thanks for your efforts, Bill
11:08:55 <Betty> OF
11:12:31 <ynpvisitor17> Betty, will you have to give away your freezer goods before you go?
11:13:33 <Betty> Daisy
11:13:54 <Betty> I think I buy a new Freezer tomorrow
11:17:15 <ynpvisitor17> oh good, will your food be OK?
11:17:34 <Betty> hopefully
11:17:48 <ynpvisitor17> very glad you did not come back from vacation to a mess of spoiled food!!
11:18:00 <ynpvisitor17> good luck
11:18:12 <Betty> thanks

14:15:46 <sparekitty> good night!
14:20:16 <GO GIANT (2)> hi Emily. when is the next SB please?
14:20:21 <GO GIANT (2)> OF
14:20:42 <Emily> 5 days +/- 12 hrs
14:21:03 <GO GIANT (2)> yeah ... i was thinking of being there at 4.5
14:21:38 <Emily> We will see what cistern does and the minors look like
14:21:46 <GO GIANT (2)> norris reports are in
14:21:49 <Emily> I see that 2 next to your name what is that?
14:22:38 <Emily> no water in it I see
14:22:53 <Emily> is that how many days left?
14:22:59 <GO GIANT (2)> days to arrival
14:23:02 <Emily> ah
14:23:32 <Emily> Im happy I captured the last daylight sb
14:24:10 <GO GIANT (2)> not the last one .... the most recent onme
14:24:22 <Emily> oh yes
14:24:56 <Emily> nice to be consistent again
14:24:58 <GO GIANT (2)> i would be happy with anything, i bet at night the noises are more pronounced with less people
14:25:19 <GO GIANT (2)> it was amazing how they changed when i saw the one in 2014 at night in steam phase
14:25:32 <GO GIANT (2)> thats why i couldnt leave it
14:25:49 <Emily> how so? did the old steam phases used ot be more poerfuk?
14:26:17 <GO GIANT (2)> i wouldnt say that, it didnt have the mixed phase .... sounds changed over time
14:26:40 <GO GIANT (2)> started as a raging blowtorch and ended as a loud rumbler 8h later
14:27:05 <Emily> Ok. Well when youre as powerful as steamboat and dynamic as norris its likely plumbing changed somewhat
14:27:15 <GO GIANT (2)> with little people noise it was amazing to listen to
14:27:32 <GO GIANT (2)> yeah the mixed phase is new this year
14:27:48 <Emily> I havent seen that
14:28:10 <Emily> Only went up to norris once this year
14:28:57 <GO GIANT (2)> the mixed phase is impressive 12h later
14:30:12 <Emily> that would have been cool to see. But by the time that happened for the eruption i saw I was sawing lodgepoles outside of the cabin
14:43:59 <GO GIANT (2)> Mara posted a short video clip as an attachment to the SB report and on Youtube. I like Bill's coment
14:57:09 <GO GIANT (2)> SC
15:29:58 <GO GIANT (2)> isnt it time for you to go to the park Michael?
15:34:04 <Michael> Way past time.
15:36:44 <Michael> Looks like you're jut about due for a return visit. Good luck finding a safe moment to sleep while you're there.
15:38:44 <GO GIANT (2)> thanks. its odd that I want Giant to erupt before I go so i am not chasing it right away
15:39:21 <GO GIANT (2)> i expect to be at SB Sunday eveming/night/day
