03:17:32 <ynpvisitor35> ... and Steamboat reaches the 6 day mark
03:18:55 <ynpvisitor39> yes, very clean seismograph
03:20:25 <ynpvisitor35> glad you are keeping an eye on it
03:21:49 <ynpvisitor39> would like to be there...but
03:23:00 <ynpvisitor39> I dont have the ability to sit and watdh fot days
03:23:07 <ynpvisitor35> if it is going to erupt today, hope it waits for daylight and those who are trying to catch it
03:24:11 <ynpvisitor35> at some point it will slow down, we just don't know when lol
03:25:02 <ynpvisitor39> yes I hope the get it today, sad Graham had to leave
03:25:23 <ynpvisitor35> no sign of Giant last night either?
03:26:14 <ynpvisitor39> did not see it, many large Grottos
03:56:16 <ynpvisitorCC> morning everyone
03:56:36 <ynpvisitor39> Hi CC joe here
03:56:49 <ynpvisitor61> morning all
03:56:51 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning Joe
03:57:11 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi DG
03:57:39 <ynpvisitorCC> don't know if it PM for you yet DG
03:58:12 <ynpvisitor999®> 1358 here
03:58:30 <ynpvisitorCC> afternoon then
03:58:54 <ynpvisitor999®> usually I'm 8 hours ahead of Yellowstone
04:02:21 <ynpvisitorCC> I am only two hours ahead and it drives me crazy when I have to set up cam hours for operators
04:13:36 <LindaG> Good morning. Just in time for OF
04:13:47 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Linda
04:14:14 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning Linda
04:14:57 <ynpvisitor39> rning LindaG
04:15:29 <ynpvisitor39> morning*
04:21:33 <ynpvisitor999®> quite the plume at the Grotto-Giant area
04:22:35 <ynpvisitorCC> Just got a call from the VEC and I will have to move the cam until they are done in the basin
04:22:50 <ynpvisitor39> grotto has been humongous all night, wanted to call Giant :)
04:23:24 <ynpvisitor999®> what are they going to do in the basin, or did they not specify?
04:23:32 <ynpvisitorCC> Hopefully they will not go out until after OF but they will call me with the eruption if they do
04:28:31 <ynpvisitorCC> going to get off now
04:29:45 <ynpvisitor35> wonder what they are doing
04:30:39 <ynpvisitor35> so early in the a.m.
04:31:50 <ynpvisitor999®> so Grotto was huge lately, right? I wonder if this means that Grotto Fountain is active again
04:42:27 <ynpvisitor999®> fluffy
04:43:13 <ynpvisitor39> I think it was teh temp and humidity that made Grotto look very large
05:48:21 <ynpvisitor47> I see the Oompa Loompas of Science have left the building.
05:49:21 <ynpvisitor999®> NG?
05:49:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
05:49:42 <ynpvisitor47> Looks like t
06:00:24 <ynpvisitor999®> lots of steam in Pump - Doublet area
06:26:32 <ynpvisitor47> A single keeper of the flame at Beehive.
06:28:07 <ynpvisitor39> gtg, enjoy everything
07:37:06 <ynpvisitor112> Grand
07:51:06 <ynpvisitor84> OF
07:56:41 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... so no follow-up NGs while a was away?
07:57:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep e
07:57:57 <ynpvisitor84> Depression ie
07:58:13 <ynpvisitor84> No idea about NG, I wasn't watching closely enough.
07:58:48 <ynpvisitor98> None were seen on the webcam.
08:02:54 <ynpvisitor999®> another surge
08:03:12 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
08:03:16 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy
08:03:17 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:03:18 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:03:19 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:03:20 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:03:21 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:04:12 <ynpvisitor84> Should have a big crowd if everyone stays.
08:04:28 <ynpvisitor999®> so is that a ranger tour for a walk-up Indy?
08:16:17 <ynpvisitor999®> is that Lioness or Big Cub left of LC from this perspective?
08:18:16 <ynpvisitor84> Probably Lioness
08:19:01 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks
08:19:11 <Kevin L™> Long Indy
08:19:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy starting?
08:19:56 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
08:21:28 <ynpvisitor84> Nice eruption! *applause*
08:21:48 <Kevin L™> Very tall
08:22:07 <ynpvisitor40> :)
08:24:44 <Kevin L™> Too bad there were clouds. Could have had rainbows.
08:28:21 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
08:28:22 <ynpvisitor999®> ie
08:30:28 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
08:31:32 <ynpvisitor999®> I guess I saw (one of) Daisy's sputs then @ 1019
08:33:19 <ynpvisitor40> What is the webcam showing right now? I,m a newby here. Thanks!
08:33:37 <Kevin L™> Daisy Geyser
08:34:06 <Kevin L™> This should help you:
08:34:08 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope this reference image will help:
08:34:11 <ynpvisitor40> :)
08:34:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
08:34:51 <Kevin L™> Doggies!
08:35:45 <ynpvisitor84> And I was just about to say that we're hitting a lull where nothing is likely to erupt. Silly me.
08:35:57 <ynpvisitor999®> it does that :)
08:36:49 <ynpvisitor84> But I'll be happy to watch the 4-leggeds for a bit after Lion is done.
08:38:52 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if NG will do something during this series
08:39:42 <ynpvisitor84> Looks like the ranger tour hit the jackpot this morning.
08:39:54 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed. Good for them
08:40:23 <ynpvisitor999®> and still no signal on YNM
08:41:00 <ynpvisitor999®> seen the observed duration of Lion, I think we caught it near start
08:46:42 <Kevin L™> I guess the tour is shorter now.
09:24:04 <Kevin L™> VERY fluffy
09:24:23 <Kevin L™> Nice static
10:16:25 <Craig> Hey all
10:16:41 <Craig> *very* steamy where the new breakout is
10:59:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
11:06:14 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion 1305
11:08:05 <ynpvisitor999®> STS, if you're here, can you please delete OF 1249 long? We've got a time now (1250 wc long), so no need to keep that A time gotten by subtracting 1h34m off of NPS' prediction
11:09:05 <ynpvisitor999®> (also, please mark eruptions gotten by this method as A please, as NPS' time is sometimes off by a minute or so)
11:09:11 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
11:11:21 <ynpvisitor999®> definitely some nice tall LC eruptions as of late
11:11:42 <Craig> indeed
11:11:45 <ynpvisitor50> Cannot believe Kevin is missing all this to watch kids that can not figure out the fastest way around an oval is to follow the oval.
11:11:54 <ynpvisitor22> shouldn't the 1249 long also have been a wc time?
11:12:43 <ynpvisitor22> gone now
11:12:57 <ynpvisitor999®> it should be an A time, actually, as the eruption is inferred from a prediction rather than from the webcam
11:14:33 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like YFT did a whole bunch of calibration signals, based on the trace
11:15:34 <ynpvisitor999®> GHG-17?
11:16:05 <Craig> its been very steamy in that area all day
11:16:30 <ynpvisitor50> Interesting Vixen reports, but no SB update.
11:21:48 <ynpvisitor999®> those Vixen reports aren't that unusual actually. I've seen similar ones before
11:22:23 <ynpvisitor999®> did I just see Slot?
11:22:31 <ynpvisitor999®> or is that Plate?
11:23:34 <ynpvisitor98> Vixen majors in a row and the water levels are interesting.
11:23:50 <ynpvisitor50> I guess there was nothing to say. SB update posted several hours later.
11:24:58 <ynpvisitor50> Well enjoy more lions, and LC majors.
11:37:06 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
11:44:51 <ynpvisitor999®> cam cleaning
12:18:59 <ynpvisitor999®> oh hi Lion
12:23:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Slot?
12:26:08 <ynpvisitor47> I feel bad that their effort is not more effective :(
12:26:44 <ynpvisitor999®> at least they show they (are forced to) care for the webcam
12:26:50 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Graham
12:27:28 <GO SOMETHING> Yeah, SB should have gone, it looked good yesterday and still no seismic report. Tara and Micah watching Giant. There was a Morning yesterday, I added it today based on Lee Whittelsleys comment while waiting for SB
12:28:28 <ynpvisitor999®> good to hear Morning is trying to catch up with the other biggies
12:28:54 <GO SOMETHING> I have lost count on the biggies
12:29:37 <GO SOMETHING> My personal count this year ends at 2.5 SB, 2 Morning, 1.5 F&M, and 1 Giant
12:30:15 <ynpvisitor999®> nice
12:30:39 <ynpvisitor39> are you flying out today?
12:31:06 <GO SOMETHING> Yes, this was the best trip with 1.5, 2, 0.5, 1
12:31:41 <ynpvisitor999®> F&M 21, SB 20, Giant 17, Morning 7
12:31:54 <ynpvisitor39> Great, we like good trips.
12:31:57 <GO SOMETHING> Yes, at Bozeman now. There was snow on the road at Bozeman Pass
12:32:25 <ynpvisitor47> SB 20 is the amazing number1
12:32:38 <ynpvisitor999®> (oh, and if we're counting NG with 'the biggies': 232 + x)
12:33:12 <GO SOMETHING> Thanks DG
12:33:13 <ynpvisitor999®> where x is some number (probably 50-70 for 2018)
12:34:48 <GO SOMETHING> The Geyser Hill activity was a lot of fun. Will be interesting to see what NG does and for how long. Not sure what boardwalk adjustmentioned will be made or when
12:35:00 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Enjoy watching SC, Lion and YNM
12:35:27 <GO SOMETHING> Night DG
12:35:57 <ynpvisitor47> Ranger R. said the guy who comes out to clean volunteered. We have a friend in the VC :)
12:59:02 <ynpvisitor66> Curious, is GHG-17 easy to spot on the cam?
13:01:41 <ynpvisitor60> Interesting seismo pattern on OF
13:06:12 <ynpvisitor98> 66 -- no
13:07:22 <ynpvisitor83> It’s hidden back there by Pump
13:09:39 <GO SOMETHING> Interesting that got a number it quit or is just erupting sneakily when nobody is watching
13:13:30 <GO SOMETHING> How easy is it to find Slot on the cam? It's intervals were very eegular
13:20:28 <GO SOMETHING> I guess it's not that easy :(
13:21:24 <ynpvisitor83> Well Plate is quite obvious so one would think that Slot would be too...
13:22:10 <ynpvisitor83> Any hints of activity from Plate?
13:25:36 <GO SOMETHING> Nothing seen from Plate. Slot was doing 30min intervals like clockwork the other day
13:43:35 <ynpvisitor71> Grand last Turban
14:09:12 <ynpvisitor83> Fewer reports coming into GT
14:09:57 <ynpvisitor83> Season is starting to wind down...
14:23:04 <ynpvisitor82> Everyone that is in park is at SB 83
14:26:40 <ynpvisitor44> Yep, most people at SB but number of peeps is dropping. Beverley leave next week too so daily SB reports will be hard to come by in Oct
14:28:32 <ynpvisitor39> Riverside
14:32:04 <ynpvisitor44> I think Tara and Micah end next weekend too
14:32:29 <ynpvisitor44> Lodge closed today
14:47:55 <ynpvisitor39> nice Aurum
14:48:15 <ynpvisitor39> great catch
14:48:24 <LindaG> Oh my first autumn 😊
14:49:07 <ynpvisitor39> ?
14:49:19 <LindaG> Or aurum
14:49:23 <ynpvisitor35> I suspect auto"correct" there. :)
14:49:42 <ynpvisitor35> At least you have a preset for it.
14:50:33 <LindaG> I've never seen it erupt, but not on camera
14:51:15 <ynpvisitor35> It is a fun catch. Good view but you have to be quick.
14:53:51 <ynpvisitor39> when I'm on, by the time my brain realizes it is Aurum and I swing the cam it's gone
14:54:24 <ynpvisitor39> some people say "what brain"
14:55:08 <LindaG> Hard to see with all the steam from OF
14:58:31 <ynpvisitor37> Wish the OF Lodge & Inn would stay open until the roads close. I guess it’s not profitable to keep them open through Oct.
14:59:52 <ynpvisitor39> I think it would be hard to staff at this time of year
15:00:53 <ynpvisitor39> Castle right on que
15:01:14 <ynpvisitor37> Good point
15:04:19 <ynpvisitor37> Nice spikes
15:06:13 <LindaG> They are nice, giving us a good show
15:13:11 <ynpvisitor31> You can see both of Bill's trail-cam posts on this cam, the one at Ear and the one south of Doublet.
15:13:44 <ynpvisitor39> nice
15:14:07 <ynpvisitor39> I wondered what you were looking at
15:18:14 <ynpvisitor39> it appears they did a nice job of cleaning the dome today
15:32:23 <ynpvisitor31> Snow Lodge open another 3 weeks
15:32:53 <ynpvisitor31> They might be able to run the Lodge cabins from the Snow Lodge registration desk now the many people opt to do without housekeeping.
15:46:45 <ynpvisitor106> Interesting note from Thomas R. It sounds like F&M may have erupted under our noses.
15:52:46 <ynpvisitor31> Really not a good wind direction right now. I am glad OF isn't due.
16:04:21 <ynpvisitor31> LION 1803 WC IE
16:11:04 <ynpvisitor31> Daisy 1810 wc
17:03:26 <ynpvisitor31> OF 1902 wc
17:06:07 <ynpvisitor31> Sehr gut!
17:07:06 <ynpvisitor39> Steamboat 1856
17:07:28 <ynpvisitor31> Nice seismo!
17:13:17 <ynpvisitor39> SB looked powerful on seismo
17:20:18 <ynpvisitor3> Looks like start is at late 55
17:21:34 <ynpvisitor39> yes, could not decide but 56 it was going
17:21:56 <GO GIANT> It didn't wait for me to get home
17:22:27 <ynpvisitor39> no, it is mean in that respect
17:22:38 <GO GIANT> Steve o left, maybe bad weather
17:23:37 <ynpvisitor39> do you think anyone was there?
17:33:05 <ynpvisitor88> I woulnt think anyone would be out ther ebecause its cold and getting dark
17:48:53 <ynpvisitor13> There are people there, I bet, SB; I was there last Sunday until 9pm; yes, colder at Norris than the UGB but it's SB!; I would have been there all day if at the park (maybe next year, if it's still in an active phase)
17:49:31 <ynpvisitor88> I did overnight
17:49:42 <ynpvisitor13> got soaked in wintry mix Monday am for steam phase (which intensified around 9:30am)
17:50:19 <ynpvisitor13> yep, I know Micah did too when he caught the am eruption a few weeks ago
17:50:42 <ynpvisitor39> yes if they stayed around for days I can't see them leaving
17:51:21 <ynpvisitor7> Hopefully cb and Bill were there. I bet Steve Eide stayed too
17:51:44 <ynpvisitor> Micah was at Fountain so maybe headed that way.
17:51:54 <ynpvisitor7> I heard very few folks were there today
17:51:57 <EMily> I was talking to gim
17:52:01 <EMily> He is at of
17:53:22 <ynpvisitor13> SB seemed ready to go from the posted notes and at 6 days+; still twilight
17:53:46 <ynpvisitor13> so anyone there should be happy
17:55:02 <ynpvisitor> Everything looks warm
17:55:47 <ynpvisitor39> hopefully we will get a Norris basin report soon
18:02:08 <ynpvisitor13> no cell service there, so it may be bit; someone will post when they can
18:12:33 <ynpvisitor63> 🤞
18:12:55 <Craig> oh hi NG
18:13:15 <Craig> wow. I must be on some *hilarious* delay
18:13:55 <ynpvisitor63> I can just barely see Fluff
18:48:23 <Craig> OF
21:38:41 <ynpvisitor35> Looks like a snow storm
21:56:44 <ynpvisitor16> OF ie
