05:18:52 <Betty> and Lion?
05:18:57 <ynpvisitor89> Lion
05:19:48 <ynpvisitor89> nice ini
05:25:54 <Dave from B™> Good morning fellow gazers and Lion
05:26:03 <Dave from B™> Hi, home already?
05:26:06 <Betty> morning Dave
05:26:12 <Betty> yup
05:30:10 <Dave from B™> Do you work tomorrow?
05:30:26 <Betty> yes
05:40:05 <ynpvisitor89> Daisy, OF
05:49:32 <Bill> Morning
05:51:49 <Jeff in CT> Morning all - another nice day in the neighborhood
05:52:13 <Dave from B™> Morning Jeff
05:52:18 <Dave from B™> and Bill
05:52:27 <Dave from B™> Bill, how was your trip to UGB?
05:52:45 <Jeff in CT> Question - any chance some late night events are missed, as the view from the webcam can be very dark?
05:53:08 <Betty> morning Bill and Jeff
05:53:25 <Bill> UGB is todsay
05:53:52 <Bill> today*
05:54:05 <Dave from B™> Jeff, if it is foggy yes. Cam has good nighttime vision for the most part
05:55:21 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
05:55:33 <Bill> Morning
05:55:35 <Betty> afternoon DG
05:55:44 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Betty
05:56:45 <Jeff in CT> Thanks Dave - just wondering as this morning's Lion initial was at the very end of its prediction window, assuming 4 events in prior series
05:57:24 <Jeff in CT> If there was a fifth event, not seen or noted, then the prediction would have been of course better
05:58:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if there's a correlation between total actual eruption duration of a series and the resulting series-series (or EOS-SOS [EOS=end of series; SOS=start of series]) interval
05:58:57 <Dave from B™> Joe or DG or Dave M.....any chance a Lion was missed last night?
05:59:48 <Dave from B™> DG, that is an interesting question
06:00:46 <Jeff in CT> 999- good point, I have not looked at other factors, such as length of an eruption, or even total time between initial and final, as correlations for predicting next initial
06:00:59 <ynpvisitor999®> haven't reviewed the captures just yet (and didn't intend to either, because it seems all overnight eruptions have been entered already), but I'll have a look at both daytime and overnight now :)
06:01:22 <Jeff in CT> Unfortunately, I am in 'proposal hell' for the next 3 months, so won't be able to look further into this until later
06:01:28 <Jeff in CT> 999 - thanks!
06:03:23 <Dave from B™> Lion quit erupting yesterday way before dark (1615).
06:04:42 <Dave from B™> This was clearly the initial so any chance an eruption was missed around 1700-1730?
06:06:08 <Dave from B™> No field entries yesterday between 1610 and 1846
06:06:56 <ynpvisitor999®> I also wonder if past X amount of series affect the series-series interval, too, as I've noticed that up to some amount of past series (I think 3-5-ish in general) seem to affect the series-series interval, too
06:06:59 <Jeff in CT> I wasn't really watching WC during that time, maybe someone else? Otherwise, just have to accept that Lion will be wild in its intervals
06:07:27 <ynpvisitor999®> 1615 EOS
06:08:05 <ynpvisitor999®> did do some 'wimpy minor minors' around the time it was expected, but I can't even classify them as minors
06:12:10 <Dave from B™> Thanks for checking DG!
06:13:10 <ynpvisitor999®> well, the 'fun' part begins now - trying to distinguish a possible Lion steam column from noise on the webcam
06:13:25 <ynpvisitor999®> (I'm not saying there was one, but in case if)
06:16:09 <ynpvisitor999®> can confirm 0049 Beehive
06:18:15 <ynpvisitor999®> 0049 exact time, Indicator 0049 ie (could not see it starting, though)
06:26:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Viewing conditions were mostly great (with exception to roughly 2200-0000) and no Lion seen. Guess this is a closed interval
06:41:18 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion 0840
06:52:36 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, with 6 eruptions in September, SB set its new record for most recorded eruptions in a month. Previous record was 5 eruptions in July 1964
06:53:31 <Dave from B™> Thanks, DG!
06:53:50 <Dave from B™> What is the record for most eruptions in a calendar year?
06:54:38 <ynpvisitor999®> per NPS website, 29 in 1964
06:55:37 <Dave from B™> and, we are at 21 this year?
06:55:47 <ynpvisitor999®> GT lists 27 for 1964
06:56:40 <ynpvisitor999®> we're indeed at 21 for this year
06:58:02 <fishynp> are there any reports of a SB eruption yesterday?
06:58:28 <ynpvisitor999®> there are 3 months left of this year. Assuming SB keeps being this active and no disturbance peeks around the corner, we're basically on the home straight for most recorded eruptions ever for SB
06:59:56 <ynpvisitor999®> no, fishynp. I was just curious if there were any other instances of >= 6 eruptions for SB in a month
07:00:58 <ynpvisitor999®> and because there weren't, I decided to put 'my' finding here as a new record for SB
07:01:00 <fishynp> Just curious because there is a big spike in the Tantalaus gauge. I initially assumed it was just rain, but the rain data doesn't look that impressive from yesterday.
07:03:08 <ynpvisitor999®> it doesn't quit look like a geyser spike either, because it builds up slowly towards max cfps rather than fast. It also drops off too fast to regular cfps, whereas with a geyser that'd be much slower
07:03:13 <ynpvisitor89> is there a daily archived seismograph record anywhere?
07:04:20 <fishynp> Yesterday's YNM seismic record is here:
07:04:28 <fishynp> no discernable signal.
07:04:44 <ynpvisitor999®> have fun: (I'm sure there's a more official site for those images, but this works :))
07:06:06 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, and this is the only note for SB yesterday, describing normal activity after an eruption while SB/Cistern's plumbing is refilling:
07:08:28 <fishynp> Is it possible something else went off without being noticed????
07:09:40 <ynpvisitor999®> uncertain, as all of USGS' 'live' loggers are down
07:10:35 <ynpvisitor999®> plus, I'd imagine an eruption which cause such spike wouldn't go unnoticed, especially the aftermath
07:12:48 <fishynp> I don't see any data showing precip in the area yesterday....can anyone who was in the basin yesterday confirm this?
07:14:24 <Dave from B™> Any chance snowmelt plays into the logger yesterday?
07:15:16 <fishynp> what snow?
07:15:31 <ynpvisitor33> wish we could see the YVO loggers .... sigh
07:17:35 <Dave from B™> In snowed in Billings Sunday morning and melted Monday....I thought the park would have received some. I know Bozeman did as well
07:20:17 <fishynp> If it snowed, we would see that on the nearby MET stations but they aren't showing anything. Unless they are all down as well.
07:20:45 <Dave from B™> Scratch that idea then.....what else would influence the logger?
07:22:18 <ynpvisitor999®> the only feature that comes to mind is Echinus
07:22:52 <ynpvisitor999®> but even for that the spike has a slow build up and back to normal too soon
07:25:54 <ynpvisitor33> No Norris observations yesterday other than Cistern/Steamboat
07:30:06 <ynpvisitor12> Carol and Bill are leaving this week too, so Norris reports may be limited
07:33:39 <ynpvisitor89> Kevin, did you have parts replaced?
07:34:34 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Chrome was being a pain. Switching to FF.
07:34:51 <ynpvisitor89> I noticed you are a new version :)
07:35:35 <Kevin L™ v1.1> It said I was still there.
07:50:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ns
08:16:33 <Betty> Daisy
08:17:29 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Hi Betty. Have a good flight?
08:17:51 <Betty> yes we had, thanks for the pics
08:18:43 <Kevin L™ v1.1> That was kind of fun. Usually they send you out on the west runway and then north.
08:19:43 <Kevin L™ v1.1> A few of us watched the radar of your plane taking off on this page.
08:20:33 <Betty> fun
08:21:39 <Betty> we started almost I hour late, but with good winds we landed before the estimated time
08:22:39 <Betty> 10 hours for the way back vs 11 h 50 for the way to
08:23:19 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Wow. Strong jetstream!
08:23:32 <Betty> yes
08:23:46 <Kevin L™ v1.1> I lost you just as you crossed into Utah.
08:24:39 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Grand
08:24:43 <Betty> Grand
08:24:58 <ynpvisitor67> Looks like Anemone to me
08:24:58 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Looks like a strong wind on it too.
08:26:51 <ynpvisitor67> So will we see more of Grand with the new cam? Any update on when we will find out?
08:26:51 <Jimbo Beryllium> Somewhat big for Anemone?
08:27:33 <ynpvisitor67> That is what I was looking at when the dual calls showed up.
08:27:40 <Jimbo Beryllium> Oh
08:27:47 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Really bummed that you could not get Zion. I was disapointed last time I went because a lot of the areas I used to play in were blocked. I don't know if I want to go back. I would just as soon remember it from my days as a kid.
08:27:48 <Betty> :-)
08:27:52 <ynpvisitor67> Delay is fun
08:28:42 <ynpvisitor67> Zion was closed or full?
08:29:07 <Betty> full though we had a night in Springdale
08:29:10 <Dave from B™> It's sad to me when someone who wants to go to a NP can't get in
08:29:54 <ynpvisitor67> Have they started the reservation system yet, or are they still stopping people when it fills up.
08:30:22 <Betty> and for additional parking in town they wanted to get 30 $
08:30:43 <Kevin L™ v1.1> We may get a better view of the actual eruption but not sure how things will be on the cam. Will not have the wide view we do now.
08:31:04 <Dave from B™> You would think they would have shuttles from the hotels
08:31:20 <Kevin L™ v1.1> $pringdale is really starting to disgust me.
08:31:34 <ynpvisitor67> I was not impressed when we were there last year. Of the other 12 parks or monuments we hit in 2 weeks, I have no need to go back to Zion.
08:31:40 <Betty> yes, but we checked out in the morning
08:31:56 <Dave from B™> So, then you almost need to stay 2 nights...ouch
08:32:39 <Jimbo Beryllium> ~ 8 minutes
08:32:57 <Jeff in CT> I thought Zion was quite impressive when visited many years ago - hiked the Narrows, and made it to Angel's Landing. Shame you didn't get to enjoy it
08:33:02 <Betty> yes, and our room at LaQuinta was 330$ including tax... it was a bad weekend for there was a music festival in town :-(
08:33:16 <Dave from B™> wow wow wow
08:33:23 <Jimbo Beryllium> Kevin L, have you ever gone to Bryce Canyon from Vegas?
08:33:32 <ynpvisitor67> Like they need a reason to get more people in the area
08:33:33 <Kevin L™ v1.1> :) on 2nd
08:33:39 <Jimbo Beryllium> Lag waiting
08:33:55 <Betty> a good one
08:34:13 <Jimbo Beryllium> Well done
08:35:02 <ynpvisitor67> That second looked like Aurum
08:35:02 <Dave from B™> Giant is sure due
08:35:09 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Looks like it.
08:37:00 <Kevin L™ v1.1> We hiked the Narrows one way coming from a creek to the Virgin River from the east side of the park. It was beautiful but a pretty tough hike. Nice hot spring to soak in at the junction of the creek and the river.
08:37:06 <ynpvisitor67> $330 for a room. That is a lot of Pretzels and beer. Kevin could even have a few brats.
08:38:44 <Kevin L™ v1.1> I bet you could get a better room for half that at Hurricane or LaVerkin.
08:39:18 <Kevin L™ v1.1> And don't EVER stay at the Cliffrose. :P :P :P :P
08:39:54 <Betty> Our intention to be at Springdale was to be early so we ge a parking lot :-p well....
08:40:11 <Betty> get*
08:41:36 <Betty> OF
08:41:44 <Betty> slow start
08:42:08 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Moving clouds make this one interesting.
08:43:31 <ynpvisitor67> Just think Kevin would be a millionaire if his family still owned the place. You probably still could not get a parking place.
08:43:57 <Kevin L™ v1.1> I would give Betty a parking place.
08:44:12 <Betty> thanks :-)
08:44:38 <Betty> you got my pics?
08:46:04 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Yes, just sent a reply
08:47:20 <Betty> it is, the last 2 pics are better. we flew a curve around it
08:47:42 <Kevin L™ v1.1> What a change!
08:48:04 <Kevin L™ v1.1> I am surprised the runways are still there.
08:48:38 <Betty> I thought you would like it :-)
08:48:43 <Kevin L™ v1.1> And my barracks!
08:49:02 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Bummer on the PX though. That was a shame.
08:52:53 <Dave from B™> Betty, what time did you try to get in the parking lot at Zion?
08:53:28 <Betty> it was around 8:30 am
08:54:06 <Betty> usually we were there at 11 when heading from Vegas
08:54:36 <Dave from B™> I will keep that in mind when we finally get there
08:55:26 <Betty> we saw a lot of people doing breakfast picnic while we were circeling
08:55:35 <Betty> Slot?
08:55:53 <Kevin L™ v1.1> From what I understand the crowds thin in November thru about Easter time.
08:58:12 <Kevin L™ v1.1> It is beautiful under a full moon as is Bryce.
09:03:59 <Jeff in CT> Springdale sure has changed since I visited back in the late 90's. Had no problems, in October, driving on the main park road.
09:05:17 <Betty> it was still fine in 2007 when I was there for the first time. they already had the shuttle then
09:05:48 <Kevin L™ v1.1> My Mother was born in $pringdale so I have been around the area all my life. I was simply stunned by how crowded the place has become. I saw a picture of a line going to the Narrows that looked like a line at a ticket counter.
09:06:44 <Jeff in CT> Seems less attractive. Is Bryce Canyon also over crowded these days - was nearly empty back then
09:06:58 <ynpvisitor67> Disney type of tourists.
09:07:13 <ynpvisitor67> Last i haerd Brice was much better experience then Zion.
09:07:31 <Kevin L™ v1.1> I guess it is getting crowded also though.
09:07:57 <Jeff in CT> Best part about Bryce is sunrise on the rim, and hiking Wallstreet
09:08:30 <Betty> the parking lots are full later in the morning too, but there were always possibilities to park at the Bryce Lodge and walk a few yards
09:09:10 <ynpvisitor67> Don't tell anyone.
09:09:20 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Bryce also has a rim shuttle
09:09:36 <Betty> I bet it is no secret anymore
09:09:38 <ynpvisitor67> Keep saying Zion is the place to go, Brice is a waist of time.
09:09:52 <Betty> :-)
09:10:36 <ynpvisitor67> So what did you do at Great Basin?
09:11:12 <Betty> ha! we wanted to do a cave tour at Lehman cave
09:11:32 <ynpvisitor67> It was closed when we were there
09:11:38 <BSK> Is it too late in the season for the cave tour? I have always been there when it was out of season for cave tours.
09:11:40 <ynpvisitor67> DId a drive by
09:11:47 <Betty> only 1 space left for that day, so we did not be able to do that :-(
09:12:22 <Betty> we had no luck this trip :-(
09:12:47 <ynpvisitor67> Did not win big in Vegas?
09:13:43 <Betty> wait... at Vegas I spent 3 times 2 $ in a slot machine, and came out with 20$, 15$ and again 20$. not too bad :-)
09:14:03 <Betty> UNNG 17?
09:14:12 <ynpvisitor67> Mesa is that way. They asked people and decided to limit the tours because people wanted more of an exclusive experience. So now no one get the experience.
09:16:44 <ynpvisitor67> Well got to go. BH in 2 to 3 hours, or 6 to 7 hours. Take your pick.
09:17:15 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd say in roughly 5 hours
09:17:30 <Betty> see ya 67
09:17:33 <Dave from B™> So, for those that have been to Utah parks, please rank them in YOUR order of preference
09:17:34 <ynpvisitor999®> bye 67
09:18:37 <ynpvisitor67> Dinosaur #1. Even though I believe it is in Colorado.
09:18:52 <ynpvisitor67> You enter from Utah.
09:18:55 <Kevin L™ v1.1> It is 67!
09:19:10 <ynpvisitor20> Zion, Arches, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, Bryce
09:19:50 <Kevin L™ v1.1> This is the link to the Zion plan I was talking about:
09:19:59 <Kevin L™ v1.1> You have to open the pdf
09:20:13 <Dave from B™> Thanks, 20! Any others want to help in my planning by ranking the parks?
09:21:23 <Kevin L™ v1.1> I like Bryce, Zion, Golden Spike
09:21:52 <Kevin L™ v1.1> State park Snow Canyon by Ivins (St George).
09:22:22 <fishynp> Capital Reef is by far the best! Least crowded, no entrance fees, great scenery!
09:23:12 <fishynp> actually, they may have entrance fees now, but they are very cheap.
09:23:40 <Kevin L™ v1.1> If you have a park pass it doesn't matter though.
09:24:14 <fishynp> True
09:27:16 <Kevin L™ v1.1> There are a lot of great spots that are not national parks such as Logan Canyon, Coral Pink Sand Dunes, Provo Canyon too.
09:27:50 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Cedar Breaks, Duck Creek.
09:30:27 <ynpvisitor67> Don't skip the monuments.
09:30:39 <Dave from B™> I've only been to Zion and Bryce
09:32:12 <Kevin L™ v1.1> For history buff Gold Spike is a lot of fun. Probably the biggest advance in transportation ever. Some great history and fun there.
09:32:36 <Jimbo Beryllium> The reason I asked about Bryce is that I have a meeting in Phoenix in January and I thought I could fly up to Vegas and do Bryce in a one-day trip. Zion is too big for that.
09:33:26 <Jimbo Beryllium> I figure the crowds will be pretty small in January, too. Might even see a postcard scene of Bryce with snow (though that might mess with my flight schedule)
09:33:31 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Provo Canyon is nice too along with Pine Valley near St George. There is a small State park in Harrisburg just off the freeway too.
09:34:43 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Bryce would probably be doable then. Not sure you would want to do some of the steeper trails as it is COLD there. You could get some great snow shots.
09:36:44 <Jimbo Beryllium> Any comments on the drive there?
09:37:19 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Expect snow
09:38:47 <Kevin L™ v1.1> I would go through Hurricane to Fredonia/Kanab then up US 89 to avoid the high mountain passes.
09:39:26 <Jimbo Beryllium> Thanks
09:40:31 <Kevin L™ v1.1> I would want an SUV.
09:40:49 <Kevin L™ v1.1> 4WD would be a plus
09:48:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle?
09:49:21 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Yep
09:49:42 <Jeff in CT> Bryce, then Capital Reef, Zion, Strawberry Point (overlooks Zion), Cedar Breaks, Kodachrome Canyon
09:51:15 <Jeff in CT> Rt 12 drive through Escalante to Boulder is not to be missed, but may be dicey if there is snow
09:56:09 <Betty> I liked Bryce most, then Arches, Zion and Capitol Reef
09:57:02 <Dave from B™> wow....lots of differences in opinion. I guess I'll have to go to all of them:)
09:58:20 <Betty> agree on route 12, great Scenic byway
09:58:25 <Kevin L™ v1.1> There is something good in Utah no matter where you turn Dave.
10:03:14 <Jeff in CT> Another short Lion sequence. Next window opens at 15:45, but I have to go to a &!$* dinner meeting - at least its a free buffet
10:03:56 <Kevin L™ v1.1> That does take some of the &!$* out of it!
10:06:46 <Dave from B™> Kevin, you work for the state of Utah promotional/tourism division?:)
10:08:22 <Kevin L™ v1.1> :) Just been around the place most my life. Spent most of my Summers there since my Aunt had 3 girls and 1 boy and having me there kept the boy occupied and prevented him from teasing the girls.
10:09:30 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Also had an Uncle that was only 5 years older than me (he is the one I go to Rainbow Canyon with). Made for some great times.
10:10:18 <Jeff in CT> BTW, the Lion prediction is 19:27 +/- 3.7 hr
10:15:41 <Betty> OF
10:15:51 <ynpvisitor999®> weak rainbow
10:16:28 <Kevin L™ v1.1> Wasn't sure it was going to make it.
10:17:40 <ynpvisitor999®> short, roughly 2m sharp
10:18:22 <Dave from B™> WE came all the way to YNP for that?
10:18:36 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
10:19:05 <Betty> we had a great Rainbow at Lion one day. we followed were it hit the ground and guess what?? it almost hit Aurum in an eruption :-) so there is gold at the end of the rainbow :-D
10:19:23 <Dave from B™> I just received a presidential alert on my phone...anyone else?
10:19:28 <Kevin L™ v1.1> :)
10:19:40 <ynpvisitor999®> oh that thingy. I've read about it
10:20:08 <Kevin L™> I got the stupid thing too
10:20:28 <Dave from B™> It woke me up
10:20:58 <Kevin L™> Now I got it on my tv
10:21:03 <Jeff in CT> Too bad we all can't reply at the same time - that would keep Twitchy Fingers from using Twitter
10:21:15 <Jimbo Beryllium> Darn, forgot to turn off my phone :thumbsdown:
10:21:40 <Eric> Uggg, got it too :-(
10:21:51 <Kevin L™> It told me they were going to send it to my cell phone.
10:23:04 <Kevin L™> We get sometimes 4 different flash flood watches since the TV covers Nevada, california, Arizona, & Utah. Make TV unwatchable.
10:25:14 <Jimbo Beryllium> We were discussing this at work trying to figure out what would necessitate a national alert, came up with: asteroid impact, supervolcano eruption, New Madrid fault zone earthquake, extraterrestrial invasion, and zombie apocalypse.
10:26:23 <Dave from B™> Warnings on cell phones is probably the best way to get in touch with the most people.
10:27:17 <Dave from B™> I know our school district uses that system when schools are closed
10:27:54 <Jeff in CT> Personally, I am looking forward to a Zombie Apocalypse
10:29:20 <Kevin L™> Tax increase?
10:33:36 <Jeff in CT> You forgot - east coast tsunami due to collapse of Cumbre Vieja on the island of La Palma, in the Canary Islands
10:34:53 <Jimbo Beryllium> That's still regional >(
10:35:13 <Kevin L™> :)
10:37:11 <Jimbo Beryllium> The announcement also includes pandemics.
10:37:27 <Jeff in CT> Attack of Pandas?
10:38:53 <Dave from B™> How about for a hole in one since he spends so much time on the golf course?
10:38:55 <Jimbo Beryllium> Yes, of course that's what it means.
10:41:10 <Eric> National alert every time BHI erupts?
10:41:32 <Jimbo Beryllium> Forgot about Killer Tomatoes, too
10:42:11 <Kevin L™> That was a good movie.
10:42:57 <Kevin L™> Maybe martians? They did take out congress once if I remembe correctly. Nation saved by Slim Whitman.
10:51:07 <ynpvisitor999®> and yet another GHP - 1244
10:54:30 <Betty> Daisy
11:01:54 <Dave from B™> That is 26 GHP's since the last Giant
11:02:15 <Betty> sigh
11:02:35 <Kevin L™> Betty broke it
11:02:56 <Dave from B™> Thank god....finally it wasn't me
11:03:13 <Betty> I did not want to speak out loud, but I fear you are right... :-(
11:03:28 <Betty> haha, Dave
11:03:49 <Dave from B™> Betty, GHP's are exciting. I've seen 6. How many did you see?
11:04:08 <Betty> We had 4
11:04:25 <Betty> Steamboat days were fun too
11:08:54 <Kevin L™> Dave loves Steamboat
11:14:33 <Jeff in CT> Later Pala dudes
11:14:57 <Kevin L™> Have fun
11:21:18 <ynpvisitor999®> OF 1320
11:21:43 <ynpvisitor999®> rainbow!
11:29:11 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
11:29:11 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:29:12 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:29:13 <ynpvisitor999®> .
11:29:24 <Betty> woot
11:29:51 <Betty> good catch
11:30:05 <ynpvisitor20> it lives
11:30:12 <Kevin L™> OF tried to hide it
11:30:14 <Jimbo Beryllium> :thumbsup:
11:30:23 <ynpvisitor999®> it did succeed mostly in that
11:31:06 <Dave from B™> Aurum will have no place to hide when the Inn Cam is alive
11:31:28 <ynpvisitor999®> speaking of that, does anyone know when we'll be switching to the new cam?
11:34:26 <Dave from B™> With winter fast approaching, I would expect it to happen before the park closes. Otherwise, it could be next Spring
11:34:44 <Dave from B™> I've heard nothing specific
11:35:50 <ynpvisitor999®> Coming to think about it, new cam position wouldn't be too bad, especially in winter, where OF tends to put up a 'nice' curtain during an eruption
11:36:21 <ynpvisitor999®> it's only the down basin view I'll be missing when the cam is in default position
11:36:26 <Dave from B™> definitely shouldn't get misted as much from the new location
11:37:19 <Dave from B™> I'll bet when OF isn't due, we'll rarely be looking in its direction
12:02:00 <Betty> indy?
12:02:25 <ynpvisitor89> yes
12:02:25 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
12:02:26 <ynpvisitor999®> .
12:02:27 <ynpvisitor999®> .
12:02:27 <ynpvisitor89> .

12:02:30 <ynpvisitor999®> .
12:02:31 <Betty> my stream is choppy
12:03:18 <Betty> good :-)
12:03:39 <ynpvisitor89> text sent
12:03:48 <kc (working)> thanks
12:03:49 <Dave from B™> Thanks
12:04:03 <ynpvisitor89> yw
12:04:10 <Jimbo Beryllium> !
12:04:19 <Betty> :!:
12:04:48 <Dave from B™> It's such a weird year.....BH and Grand being choices 5 & 6 for most gazers this year
12:06:52 <Time for BH> Watch your tongue.
12:07:46 <ynpvisitor999®> they could suddenly become choices 6 & 7 for most gazers for ~2 days if that other sput on Geyser Hill goes off
12:08:43 <Time for BH> Just think of how many Grands and BHs Dave has missed missing SB.
12:09:35 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
12:11:13 <Kevin L™> But Dave Loves the Steamboat BW sooooo much.
12:12:06 <ynpvisitor89> It is closer to home for Dave :)
12:12:24 <Dave from B™> I'll love it even more when I see SB water landing on the platform
12:12:49 <ynpvisitor999®> imagine... the fresh smell of pine trees... fresh air... and sulfur
12:12:54 <Dave from B™> yes, it is easier to get to....only 3 hours 10 minutes early in the morning
12:13:43 <ynpvisitor89> is that Steve rolling up?
12:13:55 <Kevin L™> And you can eat those breakfast burritos without having to worry.
12:14:01 <Betty> yep
12:15:03 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
12:15:11 <ynpvisitor89> bee
12:15:22 <Time for BH> That is the kind of SUV Kevin needs
12:16:05 <ynpvisitor999®> some strong winds
12:17:00 <Time for BH> I think 11 and 3 is 14. Someone was right earlier.
12:17:07 <ynpvisitor999®> this eruption is actually quite like the one @ 0049 last night - very wind-blown
12:18:47 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon CC
12:18:58 <Kevin L™> Hi CC
12:19:10 <ynpvisitorCC> Guess I logged onto the computer at the right time
12:19:24 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi DG and Kevin and others
12:19:26 <Dave from B™> Hi CC
12:19:28 <Betty> hi CC
12:19:42 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Betty...are you home?
12:19:50 <Betty> yep
12:20:01 <ynpvisitorCC> How was your visit?
12:20:06 <Time for BH> Too bad people do not keep track of how long Indy stays on or BH duration on GT. May learn some things.
12:20:08 <Kevin L™> I watched her airplane fly by my house yesterday.
12:20:34 <Time for BH> Did you wave?
12:20:41 <Betty> fun as always, though I missed all the biggies
12:20:43 <Kevin L™> Yes I did!
12:20:53 <Kevin L™> I even sent her a picture.
12:20:55 <Betty> me too :-)
12:21:51 <ynpvisitorCC> Graham is the winner this year for visiting and seeing Biggies
12:22:10 <Betty> yes he is
12:22:13 <Kevin L™> I did get 2 Aurums
12:22:17 <Time for BH> Well that was fun. May not see daytime BH till Friday.
12:22:58 <Dave from B™> I think I'm going to stalk Graham on all his summer visits...he seems to be in the right place at the right time
12:23:25 <ynpvisitorCC> No question about that Dave
12:24:32 <ynpvisitor89> Just dont follow him for breakfast, :) stay at F& M
12:25:06 <ynpvisitorCC> LOL
12:26:16 <Betty> it is not easy to follow him.
12:26:36 <Betty> he´s here and gone in a second
12:26:52 <Dave from B™> That's right. He would have had another F&M if his stomach didn't get him
12:27:11 <Dave from B™> Yes, he is stealth like
12:34:49 <BSK> Darn. Missed the :bee::bee::bee:
12:35:14 <Kevin L™> :(
12:43:46 <Jimbo Beryllium> test
12:43:52 <Jimbo Beryllium> passed it
12:44:06 <BSK> Do you think you are the President?
12:44:26 <Dave from B™> :D
12:44:41 <Dave from B™> At least Jimbo's ding wasn't as obnoxious
12:44:58 <BSK> Jimbo has more reach in my case. I didn't get "Presidential" test.
12:45:13 <Jimbo Beryllium> Nah, I had a window on the screen that I could only close by typing something
12:45:18 <ynpvisitor999®> guess you're one of the lucky few then :)
12:46:14 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
12:46:19 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
12:46:32 <Kevin L™> Knight
12:47:11 <Dave from B™> nite Betty
12:48:19 <ynpvisitor100> Sounds like Betty had a gret trip, and she did not leave anything at the airport.
12:50:00 <Dave from B™> haha...with 2 cars I can see how that could happen
12:50:11 <ynpvisitor999®> sounds like the perfect Home Alone situation
12:51:13 <ynpvisitor100> Is that how you left Spokane? OK you can come home with your mom?
12:53:47 <ynpvisitor100> Look at all those people waiting for Aurum.
13:12:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy ie
13:17:15 <ynpvisitor999®> nice jetting in GHG-17 areas
13:17:18 <ynpvisitor999®> area*
13:32:12 <ynpvisitor12> it should be distinct from Pump on the webcam
13:33:24 <Dave from B™> It lines up "perfectly". Eric had a map here Mon or Tues
13:37:08 <ynpvisitor69> Wait is there going to be a new webcam
13:37:46 <ynpvisitor999®> some time soon®
13:38:36 <Dave from B™> It will be placed on top of the Inn and replACE THE CURRENT CAM
13:39:23 <ynpvisitor12> I zoomed in on the pole and it was distinct ... will look again
13:41:00 <Dave from B™> Hello Graham
13:41:08 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Graham
13:41:10 <Kevin L™> hi graham

15:30:36 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching SC, Geyser Hill and the treeline
15:31:01 <Goldener Ritter> good knight
15:39:49 <GO CAPS BANNER> is Kevin watching the CAPS pregame show
15:40:14 <GO CAPS BANNER> some nice shots of the Knights aream
15:40:25 <GO CAPS BANNER> or arena
15:41:33 <Goldener Ritter> Probably feeding chickens.
15:42:10 <GO CAPS BANNER> only the fans wearing red looked happy tho
15:49:17 <kcmule> did you get to see the Cup, Graham?
15:49:24 <kcmule> in person I mean
15:50:18 <Goldener Ritter> Don't see anyone on a knee. :thumbsup:
15:51:37 <Goldener Ritter> That didn't take long
15:51:58 <GO CAPS BANNER> good start :)
15:52:22 <Goldener Ritter> Gotta give that a 10 out of 10.
15:54:27 <GO CAPS BANNER> blink and you missed it
15:54:49 <Goldener Ritter> Not resting on their laurels for sure. They could have had another two to boot.
16:00:55 <Goldener Ritter> That baseball game last night was pretty wild too.
16:04:48 <Goldener Ritter> Nasty clouds moving in
16:11:28 <Goldener Ritter> Sounds like cb is leaving. She noted that today is her last Steamboat post. She did pick the right year to be there.
16:16:35 <GO CAPS BANNER> Bill might have a couple more posts, i dont think he leaves till the weekend
16:17:02 <Goldener Ritter> Been a long Summer for them.
16:17:12 <GO CAPS BANNER> they had a blast this summer, saw so many Steamboat eruptions
16:17:37 <GO CAPS BANNER> and helped a lot of people see them too
16:17:53 <Goldener Ritter> Their posts were super.
16:18:24 <Goldener Ritter> Lot of great information this year to boot. Micah did a fine job.
16:19:01 <GO CAPS BANNER> have to wait to see if Carol and Bill go back next summer ... and if SB is still active
16:19:36 <GO CAPS BANNER> I suggested they go to W Thumb so Twin couild reactivate :)
16:19:58 <Goldener Ritter> Maybe hang around Plume?
16:42:50 <GO CAPS BANNER> not much else due tonight so I am quitting
16:42:53 <GO CAPS BANNER> goodnight
16:43:08 <Goldener Ritter> good knight
17:43:08 <Kent> Since GO CAPS has folded his tent I am going to play with the cam for a couple of minutes. My apologies to the folks recording.
17:44:45 <Kent> OK, I'm done. Thank you very much
18:11:36 <kcmule> daisy ie
