03:29:19 <Rice> Dave you are up early, trying ti figure out what went on yesterday?
03:30:30 <Dave from B™> No, had to drop brother in law off at the airport and have 1 day to get work done and pack for tomorrow's 8 night trip
03:33:25 <Rice> So Ear Spring Erupted, what is up with that. I see lots of specualtion.
03:34:55 <Dave from B™> It was crazy on the hill yesterday. I didn't go downhill from Lion but almost everything from Lion around to Sponge was different
03:35:40 <Dave from B™> It won't be long before we can see GH
03:36:05 <Dave from B™> Morning CC
03:36:05 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning Dave and Rice
03:36:49 <ynpvisitorCC> It seems I am on the wrong side of the camera
03:37:02 <ynpvisitorCC> Crazy times
03:37:30 <Dave from B™> Sure is. More fodder for supervolcano fanatics.
03:39:15 <ynpvisitorCC> Did you see Graham yesterday
03:40:02 <ynpvisitor8> I wish they would turn that light off they are not helping
03:40:05 <Dave from B™> I did not bump into Graham yesterday but I was only in the basin from 0830-1030
03:40:30 <Dave from B™> I would guess that is a light from a tour bus
03:40:42 <Dave from B™> or a flashlight
03:40:42 <ynpvisitorCC> Oh..well maybe you will bump into him since he is there through Sat.
03:40:58 <Dave from B™> I'm already home...taking my son to college tomorrow
03:41:20 <ynpvisitorCC> Nice
03:41:40 <ynpvisitorCC> Will you be empty nesters now
03:43:21 <Dave from B™> will be an emotional couple of weeks especially since my son is really nervous about college and being away from home
03:43:25 <ynpvisitor8> BH
03:43:27 <ynpvisitor8> BH
03:43:30 <ynpvisitor8> BH
03:43:36 <Dave from B™> !
03:43:51 <ynpvisitorCC> I was just going to say it looks like BH
03:44:28 <ynpvisitor8> that is why i wanted that light off
03:45:07 <ynpvisitor8> bhi at 0534 but the light made it difficult
03:49:13 <ynpvisitorCC> Have to get ready for work..bye
03:49:30 <ynpvisitor8> bye CC
03:50:05 <Dave from B™> Have a good day, CC
03:50:33 <Dave from B™> Joe, are lights an issue every morning?
03:50:54 <ynpvisitor8> not most
03:51:40 <ynpvisitor8> just today Dave
03:52:19 <ynpvisitor8> I was trying to be sure of bhi
03:58:11 <Dave from B™> I figured someone would be on the hill by now but people may be at Giant or SB
03:58:42 <ynpvisitor8> I guess all at SB
03:59:51 <ynpvisitor8> YNM is calm so the may get a nice daytime SB
04:00:08 <ynpvisitor8> the=they*
04:09:48 <Dave from B™> NG?
04:11:54 <ynpvisitor8> I think it was but hard to tell could not focus
04:37:28 <ynpvisitor8> what is this
04:37:32 <lc> morning
04:37:55 <ynpvisitor8> at 0618
04:37:58 <Dave from B™> Morning lc
04:38:19 <ynpvisitor8> what is that plume
04:38:34 <ynpvisitor8> near liom
04:40:53 <lc> NG I think
04:44:17 <Dave from B™> lc, how was your trip to YNP?
04:44:50 <lc> outstanding
04:45:12 <lc> how about you?
04:46:10 <lc> one SB, two Giants and some of the best Rockets I have ever seen.
04:47:56 <Dave from B™> That's fantastic. So happy for you. I had a good time but not a gazing trip. I did see a Grand, 2 NG's and a GHP. Walking GH yesterday morning was strange
04:48:14 <Dave from B™> We did go to SB for about 20 minutes yesterday
04:49:33 <lc> I was hoping you would get SB.
04:50:15 <lc> you close to Ear Spring when it erupted?
04:50:16 <Dave from B™> With so little time to gaze, I wasn't expecting it. Disturbance needs to stay away this fall
04:50:35 <Dave from B™> I wasn't in the basin. I was in my room at the inn
04:52:14 <lc> the last Giant started when I was between Grand and Beauty pool, but still nice to see.
04:54:19 <lc> we did spend 11 hours at SB the day before and 4 hour before the eruption.
04:55:08 <Dave from B™> I'm glad you got your second SB. I did bump into Polly and Udo yesterday at SB
04:56:37 <ynpvisitor8> Daisy
04:56:59 <lc> wonder when was the last time Aurum erupted at least 7 times in a day
04:57:26 <Dave from B™> seeing Doublet back pool with 2-3 foot bursts was fun
04:57:57 <Dave from B™> I was there when Steve Eide and 2 others were picking up the Ear Spring debris
04:58:27 <lc> that had to be interesting.
05:00:54 <Dave from B™> cinder blocks, full cans, cell phone cover....I'm looking forward to seeing pics in the next Sput
05:02:47 <lc> #8, I think you should log NG 0618
05:04:06 <ynpvisitor8> I've seen that plume three times since then I was not sure
05:04:49 <ynpvisitor8> it seemed a little more right?
05:04:52 <lc> sure looked like NG to me
05:05:45 <ynpvisitor8> ok I'll go through the recording and post them, tks
05:07:45 <ynpvisitor8> it was larger than i was expecting
05:08:19 <lc> there it is again
05:08:59 <lc> it is 28 this morning
05:16:15 <ynpvisitor8> I've got them posted
05:20:23 <Michael> Drive-by-greetings! Off to work now. I see NG is still going, and Giant is still a possibility.
05:20:57 <lc> has NG ever acted like this before?
05:21:16 <ynpvisitor8> NG
05:21:44 <Michael> Not that I know of. Feb 20-something, 2012 is the closest I can think of.
05:22:31 <Michael> I look forward to an eventful log of eruptions when I get back this evening...
05:22:51 <ynpvisitor8> We will try
05:23:01 <lc> it has been active for about a day a few times.
05:24:02 <lc> I'm guessing everybody is at Norris today.
05:26:27 <lc> nothing in GT from the basin since the GHP 0136
05:27:12 <Dave from B™> Some years when you're gazing you only have BH and Grand...boy, is this year different!
05:28:29 <Dave from B™> I hope we don't lose Lion
05:28:46 <lc> my most amazing year, by far.
05:29:07 <lc> I agree Dave.
05:29:52 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
05:29:54 <lc> would hate for NG to take all the energy.
05:30:07 <ynpvisitor8> Last Lion on the 15th 0918
05:30:27 <Dave from B™> It didn't appear bubblers were going when I was there yesterday morning
05:32:14 <ynpvisitor8> Hi DG
05:32:14 <ynpvisitor999®> personally, seen the length of this NG 'series', I think the Geyser Hill changes probably (most likely by now) caused an energy shift within the Lion complex to NG, which could mean we won't see much from Lion until NG stops with this activity
05:32:58 <ynpvisitor999®> on the other hand, I think this does explain why NG has built a cone while being rather inactive
05:33:32 <Dave from B™> Keep in mind that is not just NG that had increased energy. there are at least 8 features what are showing more acitivty
05:33:40 <Dave from B™> had = has
05:33:54 <ynpvisitor999®> true that
05:34:24 <Dave from B™> There have been a LOT of FB posts regarding the Ear Spring Incident
05:34:36 <Dave from B™> Also Google Groups posts as well
05:35:11 <lc> NG's cone probably built from the overflows.
05:35:32 <Dave from B™> BH has been VERY inconsistent lately as that related?
05:36:20 <Dave from B™> It's going to be an intersting month
05:36:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Doesn't BH do this every year around autumn through spring?
05:36:55 <lc> for sure something changed
05:37:19 <Dave from B™> I just threw it ot does go thru inconsistent phases often
05:37:22 <lc> this is interesting
05:37:32 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle?
05:37:39 <lc> check the people off the bw
05:37:47 <ynpvisitor8> yes
05:37:53 <ynpvisitor115> conewalkers?
05:37:57 <Dave from B™> again?
05:38:28 <Dave from B™> Can sopmeone call LE?
05:38:58 <lc> may be park employees
05:39:13 <ynpvisitor108> Jackets look like that
05:39:15 <ynpvisitor8> lE says Rangers
05:39:39 <Dave from B™> Tjhanks Joe. So, did anyone see the conewalker on SDaturday?
05:39:54 <ynpvisitor999®> do they also know why they're on OF?
05:40:35 <ynpvisitor8> Probably looking for evidence from the come Walker the other day
05:40:49 <Dave from B™> I'm surprised they diodn't tell you to turn cam away from them
05:40:59 <Dave from B™> Joe, that's my guess as well
05:41:02 <ynpvisitor999®> NG?
05:41:11 <ynpvisitor8> es
05:42:26 <ynpvisitor999®> short interval for Castle, even for a minor
05:42:40 <lc> don't realize how big OF cone is until you see a person on it.
05:44:07 <ynpvisitor8> look away :)
05:44:31 <Dave from B™> 7 intervals 3 hours or less from Aurum. I bet Kevin is happy
05:44:50 <ynpvisitor999®> well, I don't think it matters all too much now, now that the cam showed them on OF's cone
05:45:09 <ynpvisitor8> orders
05:45:56 <Dave from B™> It's the right call...don't want people to think it is okay to conewalk
05:46:09 <ynpvisitor999®> that's for sure
05:47:55 <ynpvisitor8> It is exciting to be a camera operator trying to catch these many different events
05:49:05 <lc> gtg, things to do
05:49:17 <ynpvisitor999®> bye lc
05:49:19 <Dave from B™> Bye, lc
05:54:28 <ynpvisitor32> Did hk leave Giant?
05:54:44 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like they're off of OF's cone
05:55:17 <ynpvisitor32> If there’s no in basin Grand time coming up, maybe he did
05:55:30 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
06:01:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Plate?
06:02:08 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
06:03:48 <Jimbo Astatine> Don't think we'll see a lot of water with this one
06:05:50 <Eric> Morning
06:05:53 <Dave from B™> Grotto as well?
06:05:58 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
06:06:04 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
06:06:37 <Eric> Aurum missing this morning?
06:07:19 <Eric> I assume grotto ie
06:07:46 <Eric> nps geo
06:07:52 <Eric> or maintenance
06:08:54 <ynpvisitor8> LE
06:08:58 <Dave from B™> Someone checking damage from Sat conewalker...most likely
06:09:45 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like a 2nd
06:10:38 <Jimbo Astatine> I agree, saw it lagged
06:10:47 <Jimbo Astatine> And saw water!
06:11:41 <Jimbo Astatine> 1st about 7 minutes?
06:12:02 <ynpvisitor999®> roughly
06:12:21 <ynpvisitor999®> 10m
06:13:33 <ynpvisitor999®> 11m
06:14:27 <ynpvisitor999®> 12m
06:15:31 <ynpvisitor999®> 13m
06:15:41 <Jimbo Astatine> Great show
06:15:52 <Jimbo Astatine> (Especially if one was there watching)
06:16:02 <ynpvisitor999®> not sure if it's still going, but plume suggests it's so
06:16:21 <ynpvisitor999®> 14m?!
06:16:58 <ynpvisitor999®> SC based on plume
06:17:20 <Jimbo Astatine> Maybe a 3rd got in there somehow
06:17:49 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it got in there around the 14th minute - not sure on that
06:18:46 <Jimbo Astatine> Definitely still going
06:19:28 <ynpvisitor999®> I really, really hope hk is there. He'd appreciate it to a great extent
06:19:28 <Jimbo Astatine> OK, this is not normal
06:19:44 <ynpvisitor999®> 4th or 5th burst this?
06:20:04 <Eric> You sure this isn't just continuation with turban?
06:20:05 <Jimbo Astatine> I'd say 4
06:20:22 <Jimbo Astatine> I've seen what really looks like jets
06:20:27 <Eric> I see steam lifting, but no water
06:20:28 <ynpvisitor999®> Personally I think the Vent and Turban is much smaller than this one
06:20:38 <Eric> it's 26 degrees
06:21:30 <Jimbo Astatine> True
06:22:06 <Jimbo Astatine> No certainty except 2nd
06:22:40 <Dave from B™> Hopefully, we will get a field report but steam amkes it impossible to tell when iut stopped
06:25:07 <ynpvisitor999®> so, to summarise: 2* bursts, seemed to still be going at the 14th minute, possible 3rd and 4th which would extend the duration to possibly just shy of 20 minutes
06:25:23 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
06:25:50 <Eric> nice burst back there
06:26:01 <Eric> from grotto
06:26:17 <Dave from B™> DG...that is more than likely not correct
06:26:42 <ynpvisitor999®> wishful thinking got the better of me there it seems :D
06:27:30 <ynpvisitor6> show Aurum too please!
06:27:33 <Dave from B™> The only reason I have some hesitation is that weird things are happening on GH
06:29:02 <Eric> NG
06:29:07 <ynpvisitor999®> is that the UNNG in the trees where Graham was talking about?
06:29:09 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
06:29:21 <Eric> oh ya, look at that
06:29:31 <Eric> never seensteam from there before
06:30:03 <Jimbo Astatine> Love lag when you guys are in real time
06:30:10 <Jimbo Astatine> And yeah, something behind the tree
06:30:14 <ynpvisitor999®> out the top of my head, that's UNNG-GHG-5, which usually doesn't do more than perpetually spouting
06:37:02 <Eric> something happening at doublet area...lots of steam back there
06:37:06 <Eric> ?
06:37:58 <ynpvisitor8> DG, can you check the overnight for Aurum at 0327 and 0536 please
06:38:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Will do
06:38:25 <ynpvisitor8> tks
06:40:57 <ynpvisitor999®> 0327 seems to be Giantess steam
06:42:23 <ynpvisitor8> tks
06:42:48 <ynpvisitor999®> 0536 has a 66%-ish on Aurum, but wouldn't be surprised if it's Giantess steam as well
06:43:13 <ynpvisitor8> ok thanks for checking
06:44:31 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe ask DaveM when he's around?
06:48:50 <ynpvisitor8> NG
06:50:53 <Dave from B™> darn. I keep missing it this morning
06:55:50 <Eric> OF
06:58:48 <Eric> 2 days since last lion activity
07:08:20 <ynpvisitor8> NG
07:08:47 <ynpvisitor8> NG
07:16:24 <Eric> Really curious what UNNG-GHG-5 is doing back there...seems to have periodic strong steam.
07:18:20 <ynpvisitor8> Hi Kevin
07:18:30 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin
07:18:37 <Kevin L™> Morning
07:18:45 <Eric> Morning
07:19:29 <Dave from B™> I heard various reports on Ear Spring day that it was between 5 and 20 feet tall at times
07:20:17 <ynpvisitor8> Fun at the track?
07:21:56 <Eric> UNNG-GHG-5 was 20ft tall?
07:23:23 <ynpvisitor8> Eric, DaveM posted on the youtube GOSA you can see it
07:23:51 <Kevin L™> It was a lot of fun. I will send you a few pictures. Watched a lot of the race about 10 feet behind the pit crew area.
07:23:58 <ynpvisitor8> Rare ear spring eruption caption
07:24:02 <Eric> I don't think you can see GHG-5 from the cam, just the steam
07:24:14 <Eric> I saw the ear spring eruption...that was cool.
07:24:28 <ynpvisitor8> Kevin, sounds great
07:27:47 <ynpvisitor8> NG
07:33:55 <ynpvisitor8> Daisy
07:34:25 <ynpvisitor8> in basin gazer on NG
07:34:44 <Kevin L™> Fluffy daisy
07:36:56 <Kevin L™> During the Xfinity race I was standing just next to the guy in the blue shirt by the pit box just above the car:
07:37:11 <Kevin L™> Depression?
07:37:49 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I thought you were going to take care of #2?:D
07:38:02 <Kevin L™> Looks like just a good push
07:39:40 <Eric> Nice seats Kevin :-D
07:39:41 <Kevin L™> Out of the 3 guys we drove, on finished 16th, one crashed on lap 2 and one crashed about halfway. Track did eat a lot of good cars. Just not the ones I wanted it to.
07:40:14 <Dave from B™> Seems like #18 is still in good shape
07:40:30 <Kevin L™> I watched part of the Xfinity on a balcony overlooking Richard Petty at his hauler.
07:40:54 <Kevin L™> Kurt was looking good until the very end.
07:41:47 <Dave from B™> It sounds like you were "like a kid in a candy shop". Very happy for you
07:43:23 <Kevin L™> It was pretty toasty out there, 105° most days and since it is all concrete and asphalt it seemed hotter. When we were in the parade lap they wouldn't let us run the AC since they didn't want condensate to drip on the track. Then they parade the Budwiser Clydesdales around the track. Go figure.
07:44:06 <Dave from B™> Did they tell them not to poop?
07:44:22 <Kevin L™> Lot of Doublet steam. Now we may have Doublet and OF blocking Aurum.
07:45:01 <Kevin L™> Those were BIG horses. I don't think you tell them anything!
07:47:22 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
07:47:31 <Eric> Here is a link to Janet White's UNNG-GHG-5 Video:
07:47:43 <Eric> Small eruption...but still cool
07:49:06 <Eric> Next NG 10:06 :-D
07:49:50 <ynpvisitor8> Detour66 needs to post minors
07:50:10 <Eric> Flag the entries and hopefully they will correct them.
07:50:12 <ynpvisitor8> or majors
07:50:30 <ynpvisitor8> OK
07:51:11 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like a ranger touw behind OF
07:51:17 <Dave from B™> I did go back and fix mine yesterday. My phone battery is about dead. Time to get a new phone:(:(:(
07:51:21 <ynpvisitor999®> tour*
07:52:03 <ynpvisitor999®> replacing the battery should be just fine. Just make sure you have the correct size and input/output volts and amps
07:56:13 <ynpvisitor8> gtg, will check flags when I get back, passing the fun to the next camop :)
08:01:33 <Dave from B™> Good morning stranger
08:01:57 <BSK> Good morning.
08:02:21 <Dave from B™> hahahahaha...I was talking to Jake but hello BSK:)
08:02:35 <BSK> :) Good morning to all.
08:02:52 <Dave from B™> Are you new to this page as of a few weeks ago or are yoiu usally a different nickname?
08:03:57 <ynpvisitor32> Steamboat on logger??
08:04:02 <Eric> NG in 2 minutes
08:04:23 <ynpvisitor32> Meant seismo
08:04:24 <Eric> Can we zoom to NG for start?
08:05:07 <ynpvisitor32> Nice thick line started
08:05:12 <Jake> good morning
08:05:17 <Eric> touchy controls I see :-P
08:05:25 <Dave from B™> 32, I need a few more inches to be certain
08:05:35 <Eric> Nice group for an NG
08:05:57 <ynpvisitor32> Looks promising
08:06:25 <Eric> should go any second
08:06:49 <ynpvisitor8> SB 0924 seismo
08:06:52 <Jake> they should move the group to NG, they're at Heart Spring
08:07:09 <Eric> NG
08:07:11 <BSK> NG in about 15 seconds
08:07:17 <Jake> looks like a SB
08:07:19 <Dave from B™> woohoo
08:07:25 <Dave from B™> finally caught one today
08:07:49 <Kevin L™> The Dave factor holds if it is SB
08:08:17 <Dave from B™> yes...and Udo jokingly told me to leave when he saw me at SB yesterday
08:08:21 <Eric> Next NG showing at 10:26
08:08:57 <Kevin L™> Does look like a SB signature.
08:09:06 <Eric> Thanks for the great zoom camop!
08:09:07 <Jimbo Astatine> Looks like there were some preliminary bumps before the main event
08:09:26 <Eric> I hope Art got there in time
08:09:36 <ynpvisitor32> Ha, Jake says it and now it’s true?
08:09:55 <Jimbo Astatine> Can we rename "Dave from B" --> Steamboat Indicator?
08:10:32 <Dave from B™> You must be seeing more than me
08:10:47 <ynpvisitor32> Art was going to be there today?
08:10:48 <Jake> no, it's putting it in GT that makes it true
08:11:07 <Eric> Just like predictions are always correct :-D
08:11:24 <Kevin L™> I was sure hopin
08:11:38 <Kevin L™> g Aurum would stay
08:12:05 <ynpvisitor32> My seismo is stuck at 1003
08:12:12 <Jake> if this is SB, it's staking its claim for predictability
08:12:41 <ynpvisitor28> Seismo has been slow to update today....give it another few minutes.
08:12:51 <ynpvisitor32> Or 1002
08:12:59 <Jimbo Astatine> I thought it was a data embargo
08:13:49 <ynpvisitor32> Maybe Giant this afternoon ? That would be wild
08:14:01 <Eric> Giant is due
08:14:18 <Eric> I would be rushing back to giant if I was at SB this morning
08:14:29 <ynpvisitor32> Seismo updated and does not look as thick now
08:14:44 <Dave from B™> negatory on SB
08:15:27 <ynpvisitor112> It updated on the Utah website. Looks like a Steamboat. I wonder, though, if 0938 is the actual start. 0954 looks more like activity in earnest. Can large minors do traces like that?
08:15:27 <ynpvisitor32> You were right Dave, not enough to know before
08:16:16 <Betty> Morning all
08:16:32 <Eric> Hi Betty
08:16:38 <Kevin L™> Morning Betty. How was last night?
08:16:43 <Betty> hi Eric
08:16:47 <ynpvisitor32> Maybe it’s a tiny one
08:17:06 <Eric> Tiny and steamboat I don't think should ever be said together :-P
08:17:11 <Betty> too cold. We shut off the AC
08:17:13 <Jake> it looks more like a SB than not to me because it's not so "choppy"
08:17:18 <ynpvisitor32> Nothing on Norris one at 938
08:17:54 <Betty> Hi Kevin and Jake and Dave
08:17:58 <ynpvisitor32> Maybe doing the restart thing at 1008
08:18:09 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
08:18:31 <ynpvisitor32> Nice conditions. I hope it is.
08:19:21 <Dave from B™> I don't think it is thick enough
08:19:54 <Jimbo Astatine> 0938 and 0943 are what I called bumps
08:20:01 <ynpvisitor32> Looks more like 0955 than 0925 that is posted
08:20:08 <ynpvisitor112> YNR shows a similar but weaker pattern. Hard to know for sure.
08:20:39 <Eric> I say, strong maybe.
08:20:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I think it's plausible on SB - on one side it might just be background noise, but on the other hand it does share some similarities with the seismic trace of the first 5 day interval, as in, it's a small trace
08:21:47 <ynpvisitor32> The other seismo must look very different to put the E time at 0925
08:22:08 <ynpvisitor999®> personally I think adding a '?' would be the best thing to do for now, until Norris people either confirm or flag the E time
08:22:30 <ynpvisitor32> That time will not hold
08:22:37 <ynpvisitor42> A small SB, is that one that only slimes half of the cars in the parking lot?
08:22:49 <Dave from B™> just the first row
08:23:12 <Jimbo Astatine> Good look at OF start
08:23:14 <ynpvisitor32> Seismo line at 0930 looks very normal
08:23:37 <ynpvisitor42> Do they have warning sings in the parking lot?
08:23:43 <Dave from B™> nope
08:24:01 <ynpvisitor112> I think 0925 is too early based on the trace.
08:24:05 <Dave from B™> Looks like a line of buses in the parking lot to me
08:24:07 <ynpvisitor999®> small seismic trace doesn't necessarily mean it was a small one - it could be a voluminous SB, but simply on a noise frequency which YNM and/or YNR have difficulties with picking up
08:25:08 <ynpvisitor999®> that's just my ¢2, though
08:25:41 <ynpvisitor112> Your $0.02 is worth a buck of some other folks, though :-)
08:25:52 <ynpvisitor32> David S has already posted it on FB
08:26:33 <ynpvisitor32> he’s using 0938
08:26:40 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
08:26:42 <Jimbo Astatine> Hey 42, are those sings acapella or do they have an accompaniment? >( Sure sounds like singing in the videos.
08:26:47 <BSK> NG
08:27:07 <Jake> I really need to create that betting market
08:27:16 <ynpvisitor32> I’m going with 0955 if it is SB
08:27:18 <Jake> I mean, prediction market
08:27:26 <ynpvisitor32> Ha
08:27:52 <Jake> $100 says SB has erupted
08:28:36 <ynpvisitor42> I do believe that Town Criers sang out in the acapulco style.
08:28:39 <Kevin L™> Is internet betting on geysers allowed?
08:28:48 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, I now see why 0925 is used as start time for SB. Those lines are rather difficult to work with. Actual seismic trace starts at 0955, with possibly water phase signature @ 0938.
08:29:23 <ynpvisitor999®> more-or-less a misread of the image, which can happen to anyone
08:30:05 <ynpvisitor42> Only if you pay the NPS and apply to be a concessionaire.
08:30:06 <ynpvisitor999®> we'll see what the in-basin peeps have to say
08:30:27 <Jake> I think it might be, Kevin if done a certain way
08:38:33 <fishynp> This is Jamie Farrell from the University of Utah. I'm not quite sure there was a SB eruption. That record on YNM doesn't quite look right. Also no signal on YNR.
08:38:36 <Jake> now YNM has a red line in the SB mess
08:39:10 <Jake> thanks, Jamie. How much money are you willing to bet? ;)
08:39:43 <Dave from B™> haha Jake. Once I get a hold of Udo, I will place a bet with you!:D
08:40:04 <fishynp> Based on what I've seen in the past, I'm 85% sure there was no eruption. However, I've been known to be wrong before.
08:41:00 <ynpvisitor101> Joe, Id put a ? On your gt post because YNM is very unconvincing
08:41:54 <fishynp> Look at that signal compared to the last eruption ( Very different.
08:41:56 <ynpvisitor42> ng ie
08:42:10 <ynpvisitor42> delayed
08:42:27 <ynpvisitor999®> I think most likely start time would be 0954 (as that's where the seismic trace seems to begin to widen). 0938 could be a start time, though I deem it a tad unlikely
08:42:31 <ynpvisitor19> One thing for sure, the posted time is incorrect
08:43:04 <ynpvisitor19> Not sure what Joe’s seeing yet it wasn’t SB
08:43:15 <Dave from B™> Joe stated that he was going to be away for awhile
08:43:31 <ynpvisitor42> lc
08:43:34 <ynpvisitor999®> then again, you have the 2111 SB of August 27:
08:43:35 <ynpvisitor19> Flag his time away
08:46:01 <fishynp> I guess we'll have to wait for an eye witness report.
08:46:18 <ynpvisitor999®> that's one thing for sure
08:46:32 <ynpvisitor42> Just think, all this SB typing could be nothing more then a walmart shopper that took a tumble on the boardwalk.
08:46:51 <ynpvisitor42> Enjoy lion, I need to get some stuff done.
08:46:52 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
08:47:02 <ynpvisitor999®> bye 42
08:47:23 <fishynp> Or a tour bus unloaded and they are all gathered around the museum (where the seismometer is located)......
08:48:03 <Dave from B™> Anybody had luck getting water out of the men's sinks at Norris. They are patheitc
08:48:12 <Jake> or construction has started driving pilings has started for the Norris parking deck structure
08:48:58 <Dave from B™> hahahaha. Have you seen the NPS vehicle in the first row that has obviosly been there for a few SB eruprtions?
08:49:39 <Dave from B™> Even the upper platform SB sign is looking a bit stained
08:49:51 <ynpvisitor999®> this brings me to a question: is the YNM seismo actually configured differently than your usual seismograph? Personally I think it is, as even the recent powerful earthquakes didn't change the trace even slightly, while seismos nearby showed some nice S-waves.
08:50:16 <Eric> fishynp would be the one to ask :-D
08:50:34 <ynpvisitor999®> that's why I asked it now :)
08:52:00 <fishynp> YNM is configured the same but it is in an extremely noisy environment. Not only does it record the immense amount of hydrothermal noise but like I stated earlier, it is located in the Norris Museum so it records all the people that walk by. They amount of shaking right next tot he instrument is much much more than any distant earthquake.
08:52:18 <fishynp> It records seismic signals much better at night.
08:54:03 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks
08:55:50 <Jake> NG
08:58:34 <ynpvisitor999®> with all the seismo stuff, I'm actually reminded of scientific research being done with small seismographs on the hill and around OF to better understand how OF and the geothermal system works. If this Geyser Hill 'disturbance' happened during that, I think those traces would go nuts, especially with Doublet Pool being very active and Ear Spring's major eruption
08:59:37 <fishynp> The seismic array deployment at Old Faithful was also us at the University of Utah.
09:05:03 <Jake> Tantalus spike should show up 1115 - 1130 if SB erupted or if the tour bus group all peed into Tantalus after stomping around the museum
09:05:28 <ynpvisitorEmily> hey Henry, let's tweak put the gazers
09:05:41 <ynpvisitorEmily> Added an attachment to joes gt post
09:05:56 <ynpvisitor999®> I doubt those tourists would raise the Tantalus output by 3+ cfps, Jake
09:06:16 <Jake> drink LOTS of coffee
09:06:38 <ynpvisitor999®> but once again, if all of them needed to go badly, it might as well
09:07:02 <Dave from B™> time for NG?
09:07:20 <BSK> NG just went about 5 minutes ago...
09:07:51 <Dave from B™> Thanks...last on GT was 1055
09:07:53 <BSK> Okay, closer to 10. Time flies when you're having fun. :)
09:07:56 <ynpvisitor999®> 12m ago, actually, BSK. Time flies
09:07:57 <Dave from B™> I thought it was due
09:08:15 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
09:09:22 <ynpvisitor999®> NG within about 6m
09:11:45 <ynpvisitor19> Now the seismo does not look like SB at all. Still taking bets?
09:12:06 <ynpvisitor999®> $0.01
09:12:14 <ynpvisitor999®> on eruption
09:12:17 <Dave from B™> 19, where's Jake when we're ready to place our bets?:D
09:12:50 <ynpvisitor19> Oh, did he leave?
09:12:54 <Jake> yes, but the odds have changed
09:13:21 <ynpvisitor19> Maybe a minor or something at 0955ish yet it goes away fast
09:13:40 <ynpvisitor19> Such a bookie
09:15:14 <BSK> NG
09:15:17 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
09:17:17 <ynpvisitor999®> can we have Aurum in focus too?
09:17:53 <ynpvisitor999®> (more-or-less a just in case it goes)
09:17:57 <Eric> zoom out just a hair :-D
09:18:33 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
09:21:28 <Jake> changing odds...that's how betting works!
09:22:07 <ynpvisitor999®> next Tantalus gauge update should be in about 9-10-ish minutes from now (excluding the server needing to draw new images)
09:25:00 <ynpvisitor109> lion last seen more than 3 days ago - is NG probable cause for that? any similar history?
09:27:12 <ynpvisitor999®> NG is most likely responsible for Lion's 'extended interval'/dormancy. No idea if this ~exact form has occurred previously
09:27:16 <ynpvisitor19> NG will not be so fun if it stopped Lion...
09:28:20 <ynpvisitor19> Should all the NG entries be minors?
09:28:46 <ynpvisitor999®> depends on duration and/or size of the eruption itself. Most are minor, though
09:29:35 <ynpvisitor999®> there were a few long eruptions of NG - one of which was 4m10s
09:30:15 <ynpvisitor999®> though not logged as an actual major because it lacked I think height or a steam phase (or both)
09:31:35 <ynpvisitor999®> it's just weird how things go on Geyser Hill at the moment
09:32:13 <Dave from B™> Micah talked about an "intermediate" Ng in his Google post. I believe intermediate is in TSB Bible as well.
09:32:44 <Kevin L™> I am surprised no Aurums. Must think I am driving today.
09:33:09 <Dave from B™> It is easy to miss
09:34:16 <ynpvisitor999®> it may as well just have gone while Aurum wasn't in frame
09:34:56 <Kevin L™> I would think someone in basin would catch it
09:35:09 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
09:36:03 <Jake> there's almost nobody in basin
09:36:30 <ynpvisitor999®> most of them are hanging out at that little sput somewhere in Norris
09:36:35 <Jake> it's even easy to miss Aurum when sitting at Lion/NG
09:36:37 <ynpvisitor101> Tantalus update - most recent discharge value at 11:30 is 5.84
09:36:38 <Dave from B™> Detour66 only has 15 historical entries...10 today
09:37:12 <Eric> I think they are an employee dave
09:37:39 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Eric...didn't know
09:37:50 <Jake> that's a big jump on Tantalus, odds changing again
09:38:07 <ynpvisitor101> Wish graph would update and show the detail....
09:38:47 <ynpvisitor101> 5.8 is higher than the last eruption spike!
09:39:47 <ynpvisitor101> Graph up - HUGE spike!
09:39:52 <Eric> hmm, I still don't see any spike on tantalus...
09:40:14 <ynpvisitor101> I am looking at it directly on the YVO site
09:40:16 <Eric> ohh, there it goes...nice SB eruption :-D
09:40:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Gage height in feet is the one that presumably just updated
09:40:51 <fishynp> looks convincing (
09:40:54 <Jake> the resolution on that is every 15 minutes? so it's luck of the draw if it catches max SB flow
09:41:25 <Eric> yes, but with clear sky that is confirmation of SB
09:41:52 <fishynp> seems so.
09:41:54 <Jake> I'm in the :grand: I'm in the :grand:
09:41:57 <Jimbo Astatine> It'
09:41:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Indeed, unless those pesky tourists emptied their touring car toilet and themselves in Tantalus :D
09:42:03 <Jimbo Astatine> It's visible here now
09:42:27 <Jake> congrats to those that were there. looks like perfect conditions!
09:42:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Good to see it's a confirmed eruption
09:43:35 <Jake> oh boy, next SB on Saturday afternoon...hmmmm
09:43:41 <Jimbo Astatine> Dave from B is starting to become a statistical anomaly - like the Washington Capitals until last year.
09:43:56 <Kevin L™> :P
09:44:02 <Eric> haha
09:44:18 <Jake> Dave, planning to go to Steamboat on Sunday? please say yes
09:44:30 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm going with 0954 as start time for SB
09:44:31 <Dave from B™> sorry, nothing until October for me
09:44:43 <Jake> that's fine too
09:44:55 <fishynp> I eat my words.
09:45:05 <Eric> tasty words :-D
09:45:21 <Dave from B™> Yes, I was wrong...very happy for Micah if he was there
09:45:38 <fishynp> I'll try to look at the YNM data in a little more detail to see if I can get a start time.
09:46:17 <Jake> it definitely could come out that this eruption was yet again different in some way
09:46:20 <Eric> I assume we will have in basin observation in an hour or so anyway.
09:47:24 <Eric> early in the day too, so gazers can head south and catch giant this afternoon :-D
09:47:29 <ynpvisitor999®> so... seen SB is rather predictable (unless, you know, that devil pays a visit to Norris [and no, I don't mean Dave]), I predict SB will go on September 22, 2018 @ 2154 ± 24h (5d12h±24h) with September 22, 2018 @ 0954 ± 12h (5d00h±12h) as secondary window
09:47:56 <ynpvisitor999®> of course, this only goes up when Cistern refills quickly, say, within a day or 2-3
09:48:03 <Jake> new market opening: will Lion erupt today before webcam dark-thirty?
09:48:44 <Eric> average over the last 5 is 5d4h, math says next 9/22@13:45 +- 14h
09:49:12 <ynpvisitor101> A better wager would be will we get a Giant today, and will any gazers get to see both in a day.....
09:49:13 <Eric> sorry +- 8h
09:49:23 <Eric> yes and yes 101
09:50:56 <Eric> in NG window
09:52:46 <ynpvisitor999®> uncanny predictability :D
09:54:17 <Dave from B™> Yes, please don't confuse me with the Big Norris D
09:54:56 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
09:57:01 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
09:59:10 <Jimbo Astatine> Would be fun if LC had a 15-foot major to make things more interesting!
09:59:11 <Eric> Might get daisy if we zoom out :-D
09:59:29 <Dave from B™> Before you complain about cell service in OF go to Lake for 2 days...yuck yuck yuck
09:59:30 <Eric> mmight want to log that DG
09:59:46 <Eric> any Lion group activity should be noted someplace
10:03:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
10:10:26 <ynpvisitor19> I wonder if Tara went to SB with the good morning window. No reports from her in basin
10:11:14 <Dave from B™> I bet there were a dozen or 2 gazers
10:14:08 <Eric> should have NG any moment
10:14:51 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
10:14:52 <Eric> NG
10:14:55 <BSK> There it goes.
10:15:36 <Jimbo Astatine> Intermediate?
10:15:43 <ynpvisitor999®> minor
10:16:50 <ynpvisitor999®> intermediate shows clear pulsing and has a longer duration - in the order of ~2-3m, sometimes nearly 4
10:19:00 <Jimbo Astatine> ok
10:21:42 <Jimbo Astatine> that one seemed taller, but maybe because I saw it start-to-finish
10:21:46 <ynpvisitor19> Udo’s post up. It was 0937
10:22:14 <ynpvisitor19> A 4 burst SB
10:22:24 <ynpvisitor999®> 1h15m...
10:24:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm almost certain this 1h15m for SB is the longest recorded duration for it ever
10:27:24 <ynpvisitor79> Who started the go fund me page to send Dave from B back to the park so SB can erupt after he leaves?
10:29:41 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
10:34:21 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for a few minutes
10:41:14 <lc> GT didn't like Udo's duration on SB
10:43:23 <Dave from B™> 4 burst on SB...that thing is crazy
10:44:35 <ynpvisitor79> So when is the next Aurum?
10:44:36 <Kevin L™> Interesting
10:45:09 <ynpvisitor79> It has it in for you Dave
10:46:31 <ynpvisitor17> Dave's timing is just bad
10:46:42 <ynpvisitor17> everyone assembled there today and barely had to wait
10:46:46 <lc> some of the SB gazers should be returning to UGB pretty soon.
10:47:06 <ynpvisitor79> Depends if you are Dave, or the ones that get to see it.
10:47:19 <ynpvisitor17> and others might have a different duration than Udo, there has been discussion about this before
10:48:19 <ynpvisitor17> hk, Suzanne, Graham, Micah, cb, was well watched today, there will be more info soon
10:48:22 <ynpvisitor79> If you had too much coffee, 4 bursts would be killer.
10:48:59 <Eric> Hope Art and family go there in time.
10:49:19 <ynpvisitor17> hopefully they do not return to UGB to find Giant post eruptive
10:49:55 <lc> wonder how long between burst.
10:49:57 <Eric> Well, the camera does zoom out every once in a while and it's been quiet
10:49:58 <Kevin L™> It would be great if they got both today!
10:50:16 <ynpvisitor79> ng
10:50:23 <ynpvisitor79> delayed
10:50:24 <Eric> ?
10:50:34 <Eric> ohh, I must have missed it
10:50:57 <ynpvisitor79> I am on delay of about 30 seconds
10:51:01 <Eric> 1249 would makke sense
10:51:11 <ynpvisitor79> it was not very long
10:51:40 <BSK> I blinked and missed it
10:51:58 <ynpvisitor79> That is a Kevin, Aurum thing
10:52:09 <ynpvisitor17> hopefully no jams for folks coming back to UGB. The herd is on the move toward Madison, last night it was 3 hours between Fountain Flat and Madison
10:52:16 <ynpvisitor79> I think it is going again
10:52:35 <ynpvisitor79> Maybe a white shirt
10:52:36 <Dave from B™> 17, yuck...we had a 45 minute delay yesterday
10:53:12 <ynpvisitor17> it is going to be bad from here on out, with the herd moving SLOWLY back and forth
10:53:29 <BSK> I just wish they wouldn't wear white shirts. ;)
10:53:49 <ynpvisitor17> ha, post a sign, NO white shirts on geyser hill please
10:54:28 <ynpvisitor17> I'm surprised cell was worse at Lake Dave. I have always heard cell was very good there.
10:55:05 <BSK> White shirt conference up there, now.
10:55:44 <ynpvisitor79> Capture will confirm?
10:55:47 <ynpvisitor17> Hoppes missed SB, yet they should be able to get the next one
10:56:23 <Dave from B™> Did you know 25% of Lake hotel parking is Valet parking?
10:57:01 <Dave from B™> I wonder if a $500 room comes with free valet parking
10:57:19 <lc> they missed the July 6 SB, I think they were at Canyon.
10:57:56 <ynpvisitor79> Why would anyone pay 500 bucks for a room at the lake?
10:58:39 <ynpvisitor79> They don't give free chips, or have a buffet do they?
10:59:20 <lc> I think they are trying to control the crowds.
10:59:23 <Dave from B™> There is a suite at OFI that costs $754/night before tax
11:00:30 <lc> I HATE to pay $110 a night for 2 beds and a sink.
11:00:49 <ynpvisitor79> Well if you can get 7 or 8 people in it it would be a deal.
11:01:16 <lc> not enough floor space.
11:01:37 <Jake> the suite is pretty nice and can accommodate many
11:02:14 <Dave from B™> OFI rooms in old house with 1 bed could sleep a bunch on the floor!
11:02:23 <ynpvisitor79> Take a hot plate and a forman grill and you could have a party.
11:02:55 <ynpvisitor17> people with money don't care about the price. Lake Hotel has become a place for the wealthy.
11:03:22 <Eric> watch for NG
11:03:25 <Eric> on the short cycle
11:03:28 <BSK> Lake started out that way, too, and kinda always was...
11:03:31 <ynpvisitor79> Good place to store them, away from the rest of us so we can enjoy the park.
11:04:02 <ynpvisitor17> Valet parking sounds crazy though
11:04:21 <Eric> I would pay for valet at norris :-D
11:04:33 <Eric> Go park my car some place safe!
11:04:36 <ynpvisitor17> only if they took your car to a lot far away
11:04:44 <ynpvisitor79> DOn't say that, they will start to charge for parking.
11:04:45 <Eric> NG
11:04:59 <ynpvisitor79> delay, waiting
11:05:06 <Eric> another 15 minute one
11:05:12 <ynpvisitor79> weee

11:05:17 <ynpvisitor79> tall
11:05:24 <ynpvisitor17> brief
11:05:52 <Dave from B™> one lady at OFI was complaining because she couldn't watch Netflix at night
11:05:59 <ynpvisitor79> done
11:06:16 <ynpvisitor17> that's a riot Dave
11:06:43 <Eric> well, when you pay resort prices, you expect resort ammenities
11:07:00 <ynpvisitor17> they should research the park before coming
11:07:10 <ynpvisitor79> You can park your RV, just not set out the dish as it would look like camping.
11:07:33 <Eric> Local guys doing cool stuff!
11:08:05 <ynpvisitor17> Mara posted on FB her folks might have been at SB
11:08:23 <Eric> They spend the season down in argentina flying high altitude gliders.
11:08:47 <Eric> next NG should be at 1324
11:08:51 <ynpvisitor79> Aurum seems to be napping. Back for a dinner BH.
11:08:58 <ynpvisitor79> lc ie
11:09:02 <Eric> yep, grabbing some lunch too
11:09:09 <lc> many years ago a co-worker's daughter took one look at their room at OFI and said "I am not staying in this room", always got a kick out of that.
11:09:52 <lc> I think she was about 15.
11:11:43 <lc> I can assure you Ma would not set foot in one of the cabins if not for the location.
11:12:47 <Dave from B™> A did find the worst room in the park, however...the budget cabins at Lake Lodge. the hot water heater was about 2 feet from the foot of my bed
11:16:25 <ynpvisitor999®> back in time for the next NG
11:18:39 <ynpvisitor17> Graham and Micah spent the night out at SB, so nice of it not to keep them awake for too long today
11:19:16 <ynpvisitor17> that sounds awful Dave
11:20:27 <BSK> When my son was little, he used to give OF eruptions grades. I think he would have given that one an 'A.'
11:22:08 <lc> bbl
11:22:32 <ynpvisitor999®> bye lc
11:24:15 <Dave from B™> I wonder if Graham got his rainbow
11:24:41 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
11:27:45 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP 1200 A
11:30:39 <Dave from B™> just read Udo's SB post on GT. Sounds like fun
11:32:39 <ynpvisitor17> no Rainbows, it was backlit
11:32:46 <ynpvisitor17> also, no Giant yet per Graham
11:35:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
11:35:50 <ynpvisitor999®> 5h33m interval
11:37:51 <ynpvisitor999®> GHP has been revised to 1240 A
11:41:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand might do its first try at 5 on one day tomorrow or the day after
11:43:27 <ynpvisitor999®> 8m
11:44:24 <ynpvisitor999®> 9m
11:45:00 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
11:45:46 <ynpvisitor999®> 2ne
11:45:47 <ynpvisitor999®> d
11:47:02 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd done
11:48:34 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it's done done
11:49:57 <Dave from B™> You really want to know when my brother in law is coming to the park next...He's been twice...Giant on his first trip and Ear Spring aftermath on trip 2
11:50:46 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like he has slightly more luck than you have...
11:51:37 <ynpvisitor999®> but good for him nonetheless :)
11:52:26 <Dave from B™> It's hard when you try to tell him how rare something is and he sees it on his first trip
11:52:42 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
11:54:27 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
11:55:43 <ynpvisitor999®> this would suggest the previous one went after an interval of 15m
11:56:45 <ynpvisitor999®> haven't seen much splashing at Lion today. Guess NG robbed it from evergy
11:56:58 <ynpvisitor999®> energy*
11:57:14 <BSK> Lion Cub has splashed a little, but that's all.
11:58:40 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
12:03:11 <ynpvisitor17> no Aurums seen or out of cam view most of day?
12:03:29 <ynpvisitor999®> probably the latter
12:04:28 <ynpvisitor999®> or we simply have been paying so much attention to NG that we didn't see Aurum erupting :D
12:05:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum has a logger, so eruptions should show up on there if it's not malfunctioning
12:33:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:35:27 <Dave from B™> At this point, I'm guessing that Aurum part of Ear Spring Explosion event is over...back to normal intervals...there have been paople in the field for awhile now
12:35:37 <Kevin L™> Interesting Aurum note from Graham.
12:36:01 <Betty> Hi all
12:36:01 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Betty
12:36:14 <Kevin L™> Are you toast yet?
12:36:43 <Betty> So there was a steamboat today? That‘s good
12:36:56 <Kevin L™> A 4b!
12:37:03 <Betty> Evening DG, Hi Kevin
12:37:53 <Betty> Yep. Read it
12:38:29 <Kevin L™> Today would have been a good day to visit Kyle Canyon.
12:38:42 <Betty> I spent 1 hour at the pool, now I‘m done
12:39:44 <Dave from B™> Betty, next Saturday is your lucky day!
12:39:53 <Betty> We have to get our Thinge for the tour and usually go to the walmart at sunset Station
12:40:58 <Betty> I hope for an amazing bright daylight eruption next saturday :-)
12:42:23 <Betty> Hi Dave. You are home now or taking Parker to school?
12:43:47 <Dave from B™> At work today, back tonight, leave at 0500 tomorrow
12:43:54 <Dave from B™> back = pack
12:44:45 <ynpvisitor999®> LC NG
12:45:03 <Kevin L™> Good NG
12:45:49 <Kevin L™> The temp at Kyle Canyon is 73° right now Betty.
12:45:53 <Dave from B™> I've seen 2 of 27 today...that's bad
12:46:35 <Dave from B™> Would you be shocked if F&M went overnight?
12:47:51 <ynpvisitor999®> what a pathetic Pump plume
12:48:00 <Dave from B™> So, current standings: F&M 19 SB 19 Giant 15
12:48:05 <ynpvisitor999®> not even water there
12:51:14 <ynpvisitor8> I see I read the YNM graph time wrong this morning, those lines close together throw me off now I know what I saw was the third burst ~0955. nice how the first two bursts show also
12:52:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Those graphs are hard to read indeed. Wish they were more distinguishable
12:53:07 <Kevin L™> It was interesting that comments were made from the seismo that it looked like stop and start.
12:53:22 <ynpvisitor8> I guess the bottom line is, there was a SB eruption
12:53:36 <ynpvisitor999®> that's a true fact
12:57:59 <Dave from B™> and, there was also an F&M last night
12:58:15 <Betty> Oh, F&M went really early this time
12:59:03 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I think the starting and stopping is what confused everyone
12:59:32 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
12:59:33 <Eric> NG
12:59:47 <Eric> was just typing...about time for NG :-P
13:00:02 <Eric> had to erase it.
13:03:15 <BSK> That was a fun shift on the cam. :) Later...
13:03:36 <Kent> There was no nine o’clock hour Aurum eruption last night so the two hour series ended. I was there from 2045 to 2200+ and saw nothing. 3+ hour Aurums were very nice, 2+ ones even better. There was little to no side vent activity in any of the Aurums I saw.
13:04:48 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Kent. I didn't realize you were in the field
13:05:00 <Kent> The intense frying pan boiling in the Doublet pool close to the boardwalk had returned Sunday night after greatly diminishing Sunday afternoon.
13:05:04 <Kent> Home now
13:06:30 <Kevin L™> Thanks for the report
13:07:08 <Kent> My report of a 2nd Ear major was incorrect. I ran into a friend who didn't realize I had just come off the hill. I thought he was imparting new info but in fact it was the initial eruption he was talking about.
13:07:23 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching SC and NG
13:07:43 <ynpvisitor92> I wonder if F & M will do another long now
13:07:52 <Betty> Night DG
13:07:54 <Dave from B™> Thanks Kent
13:07:55 <Eric> bye DG
13:08:06 <Dave from B™> Night DG
13:08:11 <Eric> I hope it goes short and Betty gets it :-D
13:08:18 <ynpvisitor8> bye DG
13:08:26 <Kevin L™> Are you going to Hoover Dam Betty?
13:08:43 <Betty> I‘ll buy that Eric
13:09:59 <Betty> No, I‘ve been to Hoover Dam several times before
13:12:13 <ynpvisitor92> we know where you will be Saturday Betty
13:12:46 <Kevin L™> I was going to say you will love I-11. Cuts a lot of time out of the trip.
13:14:52 <Kevin L™> NG
13:21:25 <Betty> I‘m out for today. See ya
13:21:43 <Dave from B™> Nite on red!
13:21:56 <Kevin L™> Enjoy yourself and try to stay cool.
13:23:21 <Eric> 2 15m NG in a row
13:23:36 <Eric> changing up the pattern a little
13:24:20 <Kevin L™> Come on Aurum!!!!
13:25:39 <Eric> Interesting out connected Lion group is to Aurum.
13:25:47 <Eric> how, not out
13:26:43 <Kevin L™> I wonder if the side vents are back active.
13:28:33 <Dave from B™> Eric, how true. Never really thought of it before
13:48:36 <Joe> As the temperature goes up it's getting harder and harder to see NG
13:49:05 <Kevin L™> Dave broke it
13:49:30 <Joe> :) :)
13:53:58 <Dave from B™> Hey, smiles at my expense:D
13:54:17 <Dave from B™> you have 45 minutes left to pick on me
13:55:19 <Joe> Sorry Dave I was just thinking of all the things you've broken geysers compressors trucks, a myriad of things :)
13:58:05 <Kevin L™> Septic field...
13:58:49 <Dave from B™> I could probably help with your list but it would take awhile and I'm trying to get out of here
13:59:04 <Kevin L™> :)
13:59:34 <Kevin L™> Youn can tell Nascar is headed to Richmond. Town just got hit by a tornado.
13:59:56 <Jake> Aurum "connected" to Lion or both responding to a related nearby event?
14:00:00 <Jake> NG
14:00:02 <Kevin L™> I guess there were 9 tornadoes.
14:00:17 <Kevin L™> NG
14:00:27 <Dave from B™> ouch.Where is race 3 in the first round?
14:01:21 <Kevin L™> I think Charlotte
14:01:34 <Kevin L™> The stupid roval. :P:P:P:P:P:P:P
14:02:00 <Jake> I see F&M went this morning
14:02:22 <Dave from B™> Yep...let's get al 4 biggies today
14:02:28 <Kevin L™> Storms heading to DC now.
14:02:34 <Jake> hopefully a capture can confirm
14:03:01 <ynpvisitor92> I think they put a marker on it, so they should know, they were down there
14:03:20 <Kevin L™> Sounds like they are back to Giant.
14:09:26 <Eric> "responding to a near by event" seems connected to me.
14:10:54 <Eric> That connection could be many different aspects, not just plumbing.
14:14:19 <Dave from B™> To me, the Ear event is more like an explosion than eruption when you see everything that came flying out. Had to shake some things underground
14:14:55 <Kevin L™> It was even impressive on the cam
14:15:39 <Eric> Yes, it was impressive
14:15:58 <Dave from B™> I need to watch the link
14:20:43 <Dave from B™> wow...that was something.
14:21:23 <Kevin L™> Glad we had the cam
14:28:20 <Jake> remarkable capture and quick camop-ing! was it DaveM?
14:28:31 <Kevin L™> yes
14:28:55 <Jake> that and the Improbable Geyser eruption are two things that this cam has captured that no one else did
14:29:10 <Jake> you almost have to have a camera running constantly to catch such events
14:29:55 <Jake> I would never guess that Ear Spring could blorb that much stuff out in 20s
14:30:09 <Jake> NG
14:40:42 <Craig> o/
14:45:14 <Dave from B™> Alright'll have to pick on someone else for awhile. See you later next week. Happy gazing to all!
14:45:44 <Kevin L™> We will hunt you down!
14:46:02 <Craig> was that just NG?
14:46:08 <Kevin L™> Have a good trip
14:46:24 <Craig> It was out of the corner of my eye
14:47:45 <Dave from B™> Craig, you're hallucinating...NG erupting?
14:47:58 <Craig> lol
14:48:11 <Dave from B™> Craig, I pass the baton to you:D
14:48:22 <Craig> ahaha
14:48:26 <Craig> perfect
14:48:41 <Dave from B™> I know you can handle the pressure!
14:49:00 <Craig> ;P
14:52:54 <GO GIANT> So Steamboat and F&M today...I have lost track of the counts
14:54:43 <GO GIANT> Water rising in Mastiff
14:55:14 <GO GIANT> SW VENTS
14:55:50 <Kevin L™> Yornado swarm heading to DC
14:56:18 <Kevin L™> Tornado
14:57:42 <GO GIANT> Feather on but Mastiff dropping
14:58:14 <GO GIANT> And risig
14:59:52 <GO GIANT> Cave 1659 and Mastiff iverflow
15:00:14 <Kevin L™> Nice
15:00:21 <ynpvisitor92> play by play by Graham
15:00:22 <GO GIANT> Mastiff 3 t 4 feet
15:00:28 <GO GIANT> 1700 FD
15:00:43 <ynpvisitor92> what is FD?
15:00:59 <GO GIANT> BI mas5iff
15:01:13 <Kevin L™> Go!
15:01:31 <Craig> Lets go Giant!
15:01:32 <Kevin L™> It will be fun to see if it can be seen over the trees.
15:02:02 <ynpvisitor92> First it has to erupt
15:02:24 <Kevin L™> Giant Hot Periods are fun even if it doesn't erupt.
15:02:55 <JSJ> Watching Feather & Cave is pretty cool.
15:05:39 <GO GIANT> Vertical aurging
15:06:10 <Craig> Lets go GIANT!
15:06:36 <ynpvisitor52> daisy
15:06:37 <Kevin L™> Giant, not Daisy!
15:06:55 <Craig> lol
15:08:54 <JSJ> Giant?
15:09:02 <JSJ> Giant?
15:09:04 <JSJ> Giant!
15:09:17 <Craig> am I on a delay?
15:09:23 <Craig> I am!
15:09:25 <Craig> There it is!
15:10:11 <Kevin L™> Just realized our camop was calling it live
15:10:57 <ynpvisitor92> any water?
15:11:05 <ynpvisitor92> wow, what a day for gazers
15:11:21 <Craig> now all we need is morning and an ear spring major!
15:11:38 <Kevin L™> I think there were some spikes but I was trying to log on.
15:11:59 <Craig> there was right at the beginning
15:12:12 <JSJ> Not Giant?
15:12:27 <JSJ> OK - the lack of lots of steam is a tad odd.
15:12:41 <Craig> hmm
15:12:42 <JSJ> Must be the wind blowing it sideways.
15:12:43 <ynpvisitor92> we will find out
15:12:55 <ynpvisitor92> who sent text?
15:13:01 <JSJ> Gotta be the big one, not Grotto.
15:13:20 <Kevin L™> I did.
15:13:22 <ynpvisitor92> Graham will chime in sooner or later
15:13:25 <Craig> Could see water at the beginning
15:13:27 <Eric> that doesn't look like giant?
15:13:41 <ynpvisitor92> looks like trees
15:13:43 <JSJ> Maybe a big Mastiff?
15:13:53 <JSJ> Or a relatively small Giant.
15:14:02 <ynpvisitor92> no big mastiff without Giant
15:14:07 <Craig> hmm
15:14:10 <Eric> But wind and temp make a huge difference for steam reading behind the trees
15:14:18 <JSJ> Yep.
15:14:20 <Eric> I assume Giant since Graham dropped off though
15:14:26 <ynpvisitor92> people jumping the gun today?
15:14:27 <JSJ> Probably is.
15:14:38 <lc> agree Eric
15:14:41 <JSJ> Just used to seeing mongo-sized steam plumes.
15:15:11 <Eric> Fun to read through graham's play by play :-D
15:15:35 <Eric> Almost as fun as watching micah having a heart attack calling it :-P
15:15:52 <ynpvisitor92> is it in the right place?
15:15:57 <lc> I would have thought more steam, but can't be anything else.
15:15:59 <ynpvisitor92> all I see are trees, no reference
15:16:10 <JSJ> Yep - right place.
15:16:34 <JSJ> To the right of Grand & to the left of the Artemisia notch.
15:16:43 <ynpvisitor92> too bad Tara is at work, yet at least she got SB
15:17:09 <ynpvisitor50> It is freaking Giant per text from on site
15:17:19 <Eric> nice
15:17:19 <JSJ> Cool.
15:17:20 <ynpvisitor92> oh good
15:17:33 <ynpvisitor92> what a day. All three
15:17:36 <Eric> What a day in the basin!
15:17:43 <lc> Tara got SB?
15:17:49 <ynpvisitor92> yes
15:17:59 <lc> very good.
15:18:04 <Kevin L™> Nice
15:18:06 <ynpvisitor50> sunset at Fountain Flats anybody?
15:18:06 <ynpvisitor106> Polly says it is erupting and it is a Giant function
15:18:16 <ynpvisitor92> nice
15:18:18 <Eric> That makes sense for small steam
15:18:48 <ynpvisitor106> she also notes apparently F & M this morning also
15:18:56 <Kevin L™> 67° and low humidity will do that too.
15:19:06 <ynpvisitor18> Yep, I'm so excited and jealous at the same time
15:19:24 <Eric> plus they can watch NG all night long now :-D
15:19:51 <JSJ> Unless Link starts up too.
15:19:57 <Eric> ohh, I hope Art made it down to giant...he was at NG @ 1645
15:20:57 <ynpvisitor50> that distance is doable. at to be within site of the start
15:21:05 <ynpvisitor50> at least
15:21:11 <Eric> Yep, get up to grand
15:21:54 <Eric> I just hope he listened to the hot period call and started moving fast.
15:22:00 <Kevin L™> Dave should have stayed one more day.
15:22:52 <ynpvisitor18> oooooo my goodness, all those people waiting for OF, and they don't know!
15:23:09 <ynpvisitor50> ignorance is bliss
15:23:37 <ynpvisitor50> and OF is a great geyser
15:23:44 <ynpvisitor18> true!
15:24:06 <Kevin L™> Keeps the crowds down on the hill and downbasin.
15:24:29 <ynpvisitor50> one wpould surely be a lot more impressed if you could stand 30 ft from the cone
15:25:53 <lc> if Art started down when Hot period started he should have been past Grand(nice view from there).
15:26:49 <ynpvisitor106> wish Steamboat would have been as easy to get this summer as now
15:27:17 <ynpvisitor50> SB is ridiculous right now
15:27:50 <lc> will Dave be home by Saturday?
15:28:23 <lc> might be his best chance for SB.
15:28:47 <Kevin L™> Don't think he will be.
15:29:23 <lc> he is taking his son to school, right?
15:29:33 <Kevin L™> Yes
15:30:55 <lc> I thought I was lucky but Graham, what can I say.
15:31:51 <lc> would be way too much excitement for an old man in one day.
15:33:05 <lc> have a good night everybody. If Giantess erupts I expect a text.:p
15:33:57 <Art> Made it to start
15:35:58 <Kevin L™> Yea!
15:36:03 <Kevin L™> You tired?
15:37:05 <JSJ> North Goggles at 1736.
15:38:49 <ynpvisitor92> Art you arrived at the right time!!!
15:39:53 <Art> SB and Giant in one day. Trip complete.
15:40:10 <Kevin L™> That would do it!
15:45:01 <Art> Not making it to BH
15:45:21 <ynpvisitor4> There is a BH indicator
15:46:01 <Art> Giant still going
15:53:47 <JSJ> Old Faithful
15:55:00 <JSJ> Beehive
15:55:11 <JSJ> Great dual.
15:56:54 <Kevin L™> Surprise
15:57:25 <Kevin L™> Bad time to get called away. :(
16:00:36 <Kevin L™> 12h interval.
16:00:58 <JSJ> OF was a long.
16:01:51 <GO OBLING> Where I'd the Giant emoji?
16:02:23 <Kevin L™> Next to the Obling emoji
16:02:32 <Emily> Congrats Grahahm
16:02:47 <Emily> Have to stack oN Morning tomorrow
16:02:55 <Emily> How was sitting out at SB?
16:03:14 <GO OBLING> Cold

16:04:52 <Emily> oof
16:04:57 <GO OBLING> Yes south
16:05:35 <Emily> Would be nice to have both erupting next year still
16:05:42 <Emily> Just need the bats to come out for you
16:06:20 <GO OBLING> Did you see water?
16:06:34 <Emily> yes, water was seen
16:07:04 <GO OBLING> Nice. Wind was quite strong
16:07:24 <Emily> torwards trees?
16:07:33 <Kevin L™> The lazy no good camop normally on was gone and I had to log in so I missed the initial burst.
16:07:45 <GO OBLONG> Doenstream
16:08:08 <GO OBLONG> Haha sorry
16:08:27 <GO OBLONG> I was giving play by play tho
16:09:06 <Emily> so wind torwards riverside?
16:09:31 <GO OBLONG> Yes
16:09:49 <GO OBLONG> BIJOU SIGN Moved
16:09:52 <Emily> From the right side of the Giant BW that would have been super pretty
16:10:05 <Kevin L™> I was thinking someone had taken the shift so I was concerned. Realized it was on wide when you started play by play.
16:10:16 <GO OBLONG> Perfect viewing and tainbowd
16:12:40 <GO OBLONG> Rainbows
16:13:06 <Emily> Bueatiful
16:54:14 <Kevin L™> NG min
16:58:26 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty. Bet that AC is on now!
16:58:35 <Betty> Oh, Giant :-)
16:58:49 <Kevin L™> You miss everything!
16:58:52 <Betty> It is on
16:59:35 <Betty> hope the next is short :-p
16:59:59 <Kevin L™> You may have a shot at Steamboat.
17:00:31 <Betty> We sure try
17:05:01 <Kevin L™> I should have told you about Winco. They have some great bulk things that are good for Yellowstone like trail mix and that kind of things.
17:07:15 <Kevin L™> Is that a Doublet eruption?
17:10:09 <Michael> I didn't get a good look. Wish I had a replay.
17:14:02 <Kevin L™> Had some heavy steam from two areas.

18:23:19 <Kevin L™> Hey Graham, Knights won yesterday 7-2 over the coyotes.
18:37:03 <GO MORNING> Nice. Is this play for real
