03:17:37 <Rice> Dark this morning
03:58:43 <ynpvisitor89> stream died
04:01:17 <ynpvisitor89> it is back
04:34:33 <ynpvisitor89> stream died again
04:44:25 <ynpvisitor4> Something big behind the trees?
04:44:52 <ynpvisitor4> Ah GT says Grotto ie
05:01:38 <ynpvisitor89> Riverside? but more in F&M position
05:10:23 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
05:10:32 <ynpvisitor89> Hi Dave
05:10:48 <Dave from B™> Morning Joe
05:11:06 <ynpvisitor89> you Can see F&M now ?
05:12:13 <ynpvisitor89> Dave you found me hidden :)
05:14:52 <Dave from B™> Definitely not Riverside based on interval
05:15:18 <ynpvisitor91> SteveO is checking now
05:15:23 <Dave from B™> Should get a report from Steve O soon
05:16:09 <ynpvisitor89> acting more like F&M there was just a slight pause
05:21:24 <Dave from B™> SteveO just posted Riverside. That's a surprise
05:22:02 <Dave from B™> That's a short double interval
05:23:34 <ynpvisitor89> did not expect that
05:31:43 <ynpvisitor999®> morning al
05:31:45 <ynpvisitor999®> l
05:32:54 <ynpvisitor999®> nice, a short interval for Riverside. Those sub-6h intervals have become more common as of late, which is fun
05:35:25 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll look into Beehive when the captures have been uploaded
05:39:18 <Dave from B™> Lion on Gt has a , before the 0654 time. What does that mean?
05:40:32 <ynpvisitor999®> not sure. Could be that there was another Lion entry before 0654, which was deleted. There seems to be a 50/50 chance on GT not removing the comma that appeared with the entry. A simple reload should fix it
05:52:45 <Bill> Morning
05:53:05 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Bill
05:57:18 <Dave from B™> Morning Bill
06:00:27 <ynpvisitor89> 0545 bee was lion so be prepared for Bee anytime
06:00:34 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
06:02:06 <ynpvisitor999®> another minor
06:02:51 <ynpvisitor999®> stream be choppy
06:03:31 <Dave from B™> Thanks 89
06:03:59 <Dave from B™> Another long overnight BH interval
06:04:42 <ynpvisitor89> I have not found a Lion ini
06:05:53 <ynpvisitor999®> I'll have look
06:09:49 <ynpvisitor89> lion 0108 may be ini
06:15:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion 0108 ini, 0225 #2, 0331 #3, 0447 ie? #4
06:19:31 <ynpvisitor89> stream frozen
06:19:48 <ynpvisitor999®> and a lovely white X appears
06:20:17 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if they're testing the new cam, if it's already in position
06:21:29 <Dave from B™> DG, can we see new cam position clearly from this cam? I'm thinking no since I've never seen the Inn from our vantage point
06:22:10 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't think we can, as I think there are trees in the way
06:25:30 <Dave from B™> It's going to be weird seeing cars in the cam view with the Inn cam
06:26:28 <ynpvisitor89> no stream no controls
06:27:36 <ynpvisitor89> It is too early for IT to be working
06:28:08 <Dave from B™> power outage?
06:32:47 <ynpvisitor84> Wooowww No stream
06:35:31 <ynpvisitor89> nada, nothing, zip, zilch
06:35:41 <Dave from B™> Joe, will you be given advance notice as to when camera change will occur?
06:36:02 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Jimbo
06:36:12 <Lanthanum Again> Hi DG
06:37:00 <Lanthanum Again> Hi Dave, Rice, Bill, Eric, and all the ships at sea
06:37:54 <ynpvisitor89> I would think so Dave, BTW I saw it mounted below the American flag on top of the INN
06:38:55 <ynpvisitor89> just below the hand rail
06:39:32 <Dave from B™> On your last trip to OF?
06:40:27 <ynpvisitor89> I did a quick drive through on monday
06:42:10 <ynpvisitor89> I had to go to Billings for an appointment on tue so I spent monday driving
06:42:12 <Dave from B™> Fun
06:43:10 <ynpvisitor89> had good weather and crappy weather in some spots
06:43:42 <ynpvisitor9> Dave broke the cam again?
06:43:54 <ynpvisitor999®> did your chair turn off your computer, Bill?
06:47:14 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kevin
06:47:25 <Kevin L™> hi
06:51:49 <ynpvisitor89> Must be a OF area power outage all the other cameras are still working
06:54:33 <Dave from B™> Bill, any idea when the new cam will be operational? 2019?
06:55:50 <Lanthanum Again> Yellowstone in the 5-8" snow range for next week
06:56:07 <Kevin L™> :p
06:56:48 <Lanthanum Again> 8-12" just north of the park in Montana
06:57:11 <Bill> ynpvisitor999®, hah, not this time. I just needed a restart.
06:57:25 <Bill> Dave from B™, I probably have less info than you all at this point.
06:57:42 <ynpvisitor89> I'll bet Micah could step out side of the INN, and take a picture of it for us. :)
06:57:49 <ynpvisitor999®> is it one of those days where Windows needs an update?
06:58:21 <Kevin L™> Isn't EVERYDAY a day windows needs an update?
06:58:49 <ynpvisitor999®> not in my experience. Roughly once a month for me at the moment
06:59:30 <ynpvisitor999®> When Windows 10 just came out, there were updates at least once a week, sometimes more.
07:00:15 <ynpvisitor101> Is cam down?
07:00:45 <ynpvisitor89> I have windows on one of my computers, but I rarely turn it on, I got tired of it interrupting things I was doing.
07:00:54 <ynpvisitor999®> more like all power's down, 101 - static doesn't even work
07:01:15 <ynpvisitor101> Thanks
07:01:23 <Lanthanum Again> Other cams are working
07:01:29 <ynpvisitor101> Maybe it is move the cam day
07:01:49 <ynpvisitor101> The Inn closes Sunday
07:02:22 <ynpvisitor101> Other cams are not located at OF
07:06:40 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like this power outage has also affected YFT seismo
07:07:06 <Bill>
07:07:12 <Bill> temp plot of the new feature
07:08:49 <ynpvisitor999®> has the logger been relocated around 1200 on the 21st?
07:09:19 <Bill> Did you happen to watch the timelapse?
07:09:28 <Bill> It was almost eaten on the 21st haha, so yeah
07:09:59 <ynpvisitor999®> I thought the logger had been consumed by it when it disappeared
07:10:01 <Bill> I'm thinking every big dip after that should be an eruptive event. I'll need to verify
07:10:23 <Bill> I pulled it just in time. This is the same logger
07:11:27 <ynpvisitor999®> good. If it were to be consumed and thrown out some 50 years later in some Ear Spring-like event, I wonder what they would describe that mysterious stick as
07:12:08 <Bill> Hah!
07:13:16 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks for the data, I really appreciate it :)
07:13:33 <Bill> It'll be on the drive shortly
07:13:39 <Bill> Just wanted to give ya a sneak peak
07:14:33 <Kevin L™> Can you turn the power on when you get there?
07:15:08 <Bill> Sorry, not going down today. Is there anyone i can call, or is the power actually out?
07:15:39 <ynpvisitor999®> Power appears to be actually out there - no OFVEC static, no streaming, even no YFT seismo
07:16:29 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm surprised YFT seismo went offline as well, as I'd imagine a decent seismo would have some battery to its availability in cases like these
07:18:31 <ynpvisitor999®> or it could be that YFT is still working, but can't connect to the web because of power outage
07:20:32 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, all seismos show a mag 2.7 eq 13km NE of West Yellowstone around 0247
07:27:35 <fishynp> YFT telemetry is on a cell modem, so if the cell tower is not working, data would not be flowing.
07:27:49 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks
07:28:38 <ynpvisitor999®> I was just thinking 'out loud', if you're wondering. Happens every so often
07:29:07 <ynpvisitor999®> morning, by the way
07:30:06 <fishynp> morning
07:30:31 <fishynp> I would guess the cell tower has battery backup though....
07:31:12 <ynpvisitor999®> would be rather convenient. Even some generator would do fine
07:52:14 <Bill> Alrighty! New temp logger data up for: Doublet, Ear, Little feature near Solitary junction, New feature, Pendant, Purple Haze, Cistern, Constant, Echinus, Great Fountain, Steamboat and Steam Valve.
07:52:27 <Bill>
07:52:54 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Bill!
07:52:59 <Kevin L™> You have been busy!
07:53:08 <Dave from B™> DG, I need a full summary report in 90 minutes!:D
07:54:10 <ynpvisitor999®> sure...-ish...
07:54:31 <Kevin L™> Is that US minutes or Euro minutes?
07:55:08 <ynpvisitor999®> I think US minutes. Euro minutes would be less... I think so at least
07:56:30 <ynpvisitor999®> however, I could choose to give a full summary in a day or two or so, if everything goes well. If so, I'll be linking that summary from my very own website :)
07:57:33 <Kevin L™> I have several web sites here but they all have spiders in them.
07:58:12 <ynpvisitor89> the camera is all yours, Kevin :(
07:58:25 <Dave from B™> DG, I'm only kidding. I do appreciate all the work you do. Always nice to have another overnight capture technician:).
07:58:41 <Kevin L™> Thanks Joe!
07:59:31 <ynpvisitor999®> by the way, Bill, 'Purple Haze' is known as UNNG-GHG-5 (and sometimes informally as 'Grove' now). That feature near Solitary junction is known as UNNG-GHG-15 (unless it looks like an exclamation point, in which case it's Exclamation Point)
08:00:35 <ynpvisitor999®> if that purple stays, though, I think Purple Haze wouldn't be a bad secondary name for it
08:01:25 <ynpvisitor999®> That newly developed feature between Doublet and Pump is known as UNNG-GHG-17
08:04:24 <Bill> It's across the boardwalk from Exclamation Point.
08:07:42 <ynpvisitor999®> then it's UNNG-GHG-15
08:12:02 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... Purple Haze (aka GHG-5 aka Grove) logger shows a downward trend in temperature, but no visible eruptions
08:12:44 <Bill> the "eruptions" are surges of high water and then it drains... then repeats
08:13:07 <Bill> It is a neat trend though
08:13:25 <Dave from B™> I thought Micah reported eruptions out of "Grove" recently
08:14:15 <Bill> It's always throwin up water to varying heights. It seems like a constant energy system that the water level changes on. At least since the 19th
08:14:26 <ynpvisitor999®> How's GHG-17 looking, Bill?
08:14:41 <Bill> Once the water goes down far enough most of the energy is put out as a fumerole
08:15:20 <Bill> Before I forget, it looks like the last eruption of the new feature was at 1917 on the 27th (camera time)
08:19:44 <Bill> Ok, you'll have to give me a remind of which one is 17
08:19:48 <Bill> reminder
08:21:32 <ynpvisitor47> I think someone missed BH.
08:24:58 <Kevin L™> Streaming is up
08:27:37 <Kevin L™> Steaming is also up.
08:30:11 <Eric> static is still stuck at 8:20
08:32:49 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
08:32:56 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Eric
08:34:33 <Eric> Morning
08:38:00 <Eric> is that oblong steam?
08:38:40 <ynpvisitor999®> could be from Turban
08:40:10 <Kevin L™> Looks like Turban
08:40:47 <Eric> It's been going for a while...that would be a big long turban
08:41:33 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep
08:41:40 <Dave from B™> Surely Grand has gone by now? We are at 6hrs 45minutes:)
08:42:03 <Eric> Yep, I bet we missed it.
08:43:11 <ynpvisitor47> Missed Grand ad BH?
08:44:30 <Eric> not sure about bh, it still seems steamy
08:54:42 <Kevin L™> BH looked post eruptive when the cam came back up.
09:01:39 <Kevin L™> BH looks dead now. I was hoping for a field report on it.
09:02:42 <ynpvisitor59> Why is there a new prediction with no report of eruption ?
09:03:11 <ynpvisitor999®> ?
09:03:33 <ynpvisitor59> There’s a prediction for 2006
09:04:08 <ynpvisitor47> I am guessing it was dark and foggy this morning?
09:04:19 <Kevin L™> I am not sure. When the cam came on it had a steady stream of steam coming out of it. Looks dead now. No time posted for GT but it does have a new prediction for 2006
09:04:26 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, that's a prediction done because Beehive was entered as 0545 ? wc tonight, while it actually was Lion
09:04:30 <ynpvisitor59> They usually do not guess on predictions
09:04:47 <Kevin L™> It was dark. Cam was down
09:04:48 <Dave from B™> Not many field reports today
09:04:50 <ynpvisitor999®> that entry has been removed now. The prediction stays, however
09:05:11 <ynpvisitor59> Thanks DG, understood
09:05:29 <Kevin L™> OK, that makes sense.
09:05:37 <ynpvisitor59> Would you be out there Dave?
09:05:39 <ynpvisitor999®> nice plume in above Grotto-Giant area
09:05:56 <ynpvisitor59> SteveO and Kitt left I think
09:06:10 <Dave from B™> Only place I would be in this weather would be at the ship
09:06:15 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
09:06:16 <Betty> morning all
09:06:20 <Dave from B™> 59, I was wondering about that
09:06:24 <ynpvisitor59> Tara has to work
09:06:25 <Kevin L™> William has entered Giant info
09:06:36 <Betty> hi DG
09:06:44 <ynpvisitor59> He might have to work too. William.
09:06:51 <Kevin L™> Hi Betty. Is Oktoberfest over now?
09:07:10 <ynpvisitor59> He works at Upper Hams
09:07:52 <ynpvisitor59> Could it be over by Oct 4?
09:08:27 <Betty> no, on Sunday
09:08:43 <Dave from B™> 59, Octoberfest is mostl in Sept...I learned that interesting tidbit last year
09:08:46 <Kevin L™> Cams were down there this morning too.
09:08:51 <Betty> hi Kevin, Dave and 59
09:09:19 <Kevin L™> I believe it was a wedding celebration to start. Is that right Betty?
09:09:25 <Betty> correct, Dave
09:09:38 <Betty> and correct Kevin
09:09:42 <ynpvisitor59> Interesting
09:09:52 <ynpvisitor47> September Fest does not sound right.
09:10:02 <Kevin L™> I sure would not have wanted to pay for that one!
09:20:20 <Betty> Glad I was in the park with sunny weather, Cold but sunny. This looks ugly
09:20:43 <Kevin L™> Does not look fun
09:20:51 <Dave from B™> Yep...October has a big temperature range
09:21:14 <Dave from B™> It looks like a good day to sit by the fire in the Inn
09:22:08 <Kevin L™> 72° and clear here Dave.
09:22:09 <Betty> we had a sunny day today, temps around 70
09:22:41 <Dave from B™> Now, the weather advantage goes back to you
09:24:14 <BSK> Such a beautiful day. Where is everyone?
09:25:11 <ynpvisitor999®> stalking the treeline
09:25:41 <ynpvisitor999®> NG
09:26:10 <Kevin L™> I missed that
09:27:09 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... I wonder if was stalking the Lion group more than the treeline
09:29:07 <Betty> why is PEANOT in capitals?
09:29:39 <Kevin L™> Maybe Graham set it up.
09:30:12 <Betty> hahaha
09:30:48 <Dave from B™> It has to be an acronym for something. Any ideas?
09:31:14 <ynpvisitor999®> Pool East And North of Twig
09:31:20 <ynpvisitor33> because it is an acronym
09:32:21 <ynpvisitor999®> and here comes the rain
09:32:41 <Dave from B™> :D:D:D
09:32:57 <Dave from B™> I never knew that....I just thought Peanut was already taken!
09:33:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Giant better go now, as, well, the weather conditions are perfect for a large geyser to go *cough*Steamboat*cough*
09:34:41 <ynpvisitor47> SB can not go. Dave is not on his way to the park, or on his way back home.
09:35:02 <ynpvisitor97> Technically it should be PENT because in Acronyms the words and and of are not included, yet it was Bill Warnock who named it, so let's keep it please
09:36:13 <ynpvisitor97> Bill B posted without Carol there, hence his SOB
09:37:34 <Betty> I´m totally ok with it, was just wondering
09:38:01 <Betty> Aurum
09:38:09 <Betty> .
09:38:10 <Betty> .
09:38:11 <Betty> .
09:38:15 <Dave from B™> 97, that's not a nice name to call Bill:D
09:38:30 <Dave from B™> shouldn't that be SOP?
09:40:27 <ynpvisitor47> Kevin keeps sending me a circle
09:43:11 <ynpvisitor97> he was sobbing without Carol Dave
09:43:26 <ynpvisitor97> What is SOP?
09:44:42 <Dave from B™> Standard Operating Procedure
09:45:44 <Dave from B™> Bill and Carol did a FANTASTIC job reporting at Norris this year.
09:45:45 <Betty> Anemone big
09:46:08 <Kevin L™> Sure going to miss feet on the ground.
09:46:29 <ynpvisitor97> Bill is there until Sunday I think
09:47:11 <ynpvisitor97> Andrew will be the only Giant reports
09:55:19 <ynpvisitor47> Micah unemployed now?
09:55:37 <Kevin L™> I think this weekend
09:57:52 <ynpvisitor47> I would think they would just close things when the 'season' is over. Instead they slowly choke it to death.
09:59:03 <Kevin L™> Staffing may also be an issue
09:59:06 <ynpvisitor33> I'd disagree with that
09:59:36 <ynpvisitor97> it is hard to find employees, yet also they do not market to the full season
10:00:06 <ynpvisitor33> they have to learn that tours will keep coming even when interior lodging is closed - and keep more staff
10:01:36 <ynpvisitor47> Daisy?
10:03:24 <ynpvisitor47> Well, no BH today. See you Friday.
10:07:23 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
10:08:03 <ynpvisitor999®> what a terribly long interval - 3h01m
10:08:11 <ynpvisitor97> you are dreaming 33
10:08:16 <ynpvisitor97> they do not have to do anything
10:09:59 <ynpvisitor33> Just saying what I see - motels in the gateway towns are still operating when interior lodging closes
10:10:18 <ynpvisitor97> and they can eat in the gateway towns
10:11:33 <Dave from B™> Slowly closing down a huge corporate operation can't be done all at once
10:15:16 <Dave from B™> That was a dumb sentence but I hope you got what I meant
10:17:22 <ynpvisitor97> Big steam in Giant area
10:18:23 <ynpvisitor97> will be sad if Giant erupts and no one is there
10:22:03 <ynpvisitor97> Tara posted Grotto
10:22:24 <ynpvisitor97> I guess on a day like today, Giant would be massive
10:40:02 <fishynp> FYI, YFT (Old Faithful seismo) is back up. Took awhile for the data to backfill but it's all there now.
10:40:22 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
10:42:36 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... source seems to be F&M
10:42:48 <ynpvisitor999®> based on wind drift, that is
10:43:19 <Kevin L™> That is what I was wondering.
10:43:36 <Kevin L™> If there are people at Giant we will know.
10:44:28 <ynpvisitor999®> on the other hand, it could be Riverside doing one of its shorter intervals
10:44:59 <Kevin L™> Hard to tell behind the trees
10:45:10 <Kevin L™> We need drone cam.
10:47:10 <ynpvisitor20> way too early for Riverside, no?
10:47:23 <ynpvisitor999®> not as of late
10:47:56 <Kevin L™> Nothing posted either way right now.
10:49:10 <Jeff in CT> Afternoon all. Seems like a rather unEVENTful day?
10:49:23 <ynpvisitor999®> mhm
10:50:52 <Jeff in CT> Lion continues to make me a fool. Early mornings initial at 1:08 am was 5.7 hrs after my prediction, and 2 hrs after the window
10:51:49 <Jeff in CT> Counting 7 eruptions in the last sequence, my new prediction is for 19:56 today - may have to rethink this Lion prediction gig
10:51:56 <Dave from B™> Jeff, you need a bigger barn door:)
10:52:01 <ynpvisitor999®> as for Riverside, I remember coming on here when Riverside did roughly 6h15m and 6h45m intervals. Apparantly this has shortened to roughly 5h50m and 6h20m in ~2 years
10:52:42 <ynpvisitor999®> and it continues to shorten
10:52:46 <Jeff in CT> Yup, but only if Amazon sells barn doors
11:10:05 <Dave from B™> I buy everything from Kevin
11:11:21 <Dave from B™> Since Bill and cb are leaving Norris, I nominate Joe to move to Norris until closing to give us daily updates
11:14:18 <Kevin L™> I think you should split shifts with him.
11:16:13 <Dave from B™> I'll do it for a fee
11:21:53 <Bill> I check this chat every now and then and see my name in bold whenever you talk about Bill
11:22:07 <Bill> keeps me on my toes
11:24:20 <Dave from B™> haha
11:24:49 <ynpvisitor33> different Bill, Bill :D
11:25:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Billception?
11:56:58 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ns
11:57:45 <Jeff in CT> Nice crowd, all things considered
12:05:33 <Bill> I've met up with Bill and Carol in NGB quite often. I always make it a point to stop in the book store to say hey.
12:09:55 <Dave from B™> Bill, now that winter is fast approaching, what indoor projects will you soon be working on?
12:10:46 <Bill> Oh goodness...
12:11:16 <Bill> Just a minute
12:12:01 <ynpvisitor999®> so... is this going to be a 50kB text file filled with all indoor stuff that needs doing? :D
12:12:22 <Bill> Hah, probably not far off.
12:12:45 <Dave from B™> I just need the cliff notes version:)
12:12:59 <Dave from B™> Or, what excites you for the winter?
12:13:18 <Bill> Off the top of my head: create a database/database management that's sustainable indefinitely into the future (including attached pics), work with interp to get their observations logged better...
12:14:15 <Bill> create a boardwalk inventory, work on signage inventory and figure out where we need to put new signs, try to get some of our thermal inventory out to the public...
12:15:27 <Bill> analyze our thermal monitoring data from all the NGB excitement, and the Ear event in UGB, create a plan/allocate gear for event response, organize our internal data structure
12:15:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Deop
12:15:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep*
12:16:03 <ynpvisitor999®> nice splashes
12:16:18 <Bill> build our new telemetered temperature loggers and cameras (not gonna build the camera), figure out how many new people we need to operate... I'm sure there's more, but that's the start
12:16:21 <Kevin L™> Friend sent me this link. Brought back a few memories. Younger ones (especially DG) will not understand this one:
12:17:20 <ynpvisitor999®> you're absolutely right, Kevin
12:17:43 <ynpvisitor999®> and that's one long list you got there, Bill
12:18:05 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Bill. Sounds like more than a winter's worth of work
12:18:11 <Bill> There's plenty of work to do, for sure.
12:18:15 <Art> Grotto?
12:18:20 <Bill> Very true, Dave.
12:19:08 <Kevin L™> This may help DG:
12:19:52 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm fairly certain gazers can help you with some things that need doing, Bill
12:22:17 <ynpvisitor999®> uhmm... I'm sorry to say this, but to what gibberish did I just listen...?
12:22:32 <ynpvisitor89> I see someone got depressed at 1415 :)
12:22:54 <Kevin L™> You had to be there DG.
12:26:20 <Kevin L™> Mean looking clouds.
12:26:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle?
12:26:38 <ynpvisitor999®> I thought I saw some jetting there
12:26:55 <Kevin L™> Just steam
12:27:09 <ynpvisitor999®> must've been that wishful thinking again
12:27:53 <ynpvisitor999®> and that probably means it's time to sign off for today. Have fun watching SC and Geyser Hill
12:28:31 <Dave from B™> 10-4 good buddy:D
12:28:32 <Kevin L™> Keep it between the ditches DG
12:30:24 <ynpvisitor89> Hey Dave, thanks for the Norris nomination, might be a nice idea 0=
12:30:58 <Dave from B™> You taking the night shift?:)
12:31:30 <ynpvisitor89> OK :!: ;)
12:33:01 <ynpvisitor89> It may also be a way to get rid of me permanently!
12:48:39 <Dave from B™> Did I hear correctly that the SB bw was closed for awhile because it got icy during/after an eruption?
12:50:59 <Jeff in CT> Giant?
12:51:01 <Kevin L™> May be a Rocket major
12:51:35 <Jeff in CT> Or just an extra puff of vapor
12:55:00 <Dave from B™> Beartooth highway is closing for the season tomorrow morning
12:55:47 <Kevin L™> We hit 81° today. Nice and cool.
12:56:52 <Kevin L™> Faisy
12:57:21 <ynpvisitor91> Bill. What are the chances of getting loggers on Morning and Giant?
12:57:45 <Bill> Time pending, moderate-high.
12:58:52 <ynpvisitor91> That would be awesome if it can happen. We will lose a lot of eruptions otherwise
13:00:03 <Bill> I'm almost booked through Nov at this point. I'm going to have to spend a few days out collecting all the data from the summer. If I have time I'll deploy a few more
13:03:05 <ynpvisitor91> Great . I'm hoping it happens. Obviously its historic activity we might not see again for a long time
13:17:20 <ynpvisitor45> I think they should kep the park open all winter for scientific reasons.
13:18:29 <Dave from B™> And, who is going to rescue all the tour buses that get stuck?
13:18:58 <Kevin L™> Looks a bit damp now.
13:20:05 <ynpvisitor45> DOn't let them in with ut chains and a plow.
13:23:25 <Dave from B™> How many people own chains. I'm at 55 years and counting with no chains
13:24:19 <ynpvisitor45> Do you drive the back country, or stay on the interstates?
13:24:22 <Kevin L™> I have a set of chains.
13:24:37 <ynpvisitor20> Giant ?
13:24:48 <ynpvisitor45> ? no ?
13:25:11 <Dave from B™> I have ALD. That's all I need. I don't drive in the mountains in winter
13:25:26 <Jeff in CT> I used to have strap-ons, back in the 70's, not quite chains, but good enough if you don't mind the slip-thunk-slip-slip action
13:26:24 <ynpvisitor45> Not sure on Buses. Trucks need to carry chains when the roads are marked as such, or stop before the sign.
13:26:25 <Kevin L™> I haven't seen a report on Giant. Been steam coming up like that every once in a while.
13:26:45 <ynpvisitor45> So, if you want to take a bus into the park in winter, bring chains.
13:28:05 <ynpvisitor45> Lots of AWD and 4x4s end up in the ditch.
13:29:39 <Jeff in CT> As I like to tell the Swamp-Yankees around here, you may have four wheel drive, but you also have four wheel slide
13:29:42 <ynpvisitor45> SOmething back, back basin
13:30:19 <Dave from B™> Hiking Dude thinks it Giant
13:30:50 <ynpvisitor92> Was there any water over the trees that anyone saw?
13:31:01 <Eric> That doesn't look like giant to me
13:31:06 <ynpvisitor45> This is farther right. not very tall
13:31:26 <Eric> If giant was ie, we would still be seeing large steam cloud
13:31:51 <Jeff in CT> Fluffy
13:32:06 <Jeff in CT> Over the trees - its just more vapor due to humid conditions
13:32:10 <ynpvisitor45> Grotto, arty, F&M?
13:32:21 <Jeff in CT> Maybe there are eyes on the ground out there to confirm
13:32:23 <ynpvisitor45> not F&M
13:32:31 <Dave from B™> Arty was 1512ie
13:32:37 <Dave from B™> per Tara
13:32:40 <ynpvisitor92> Right place for F&M.
13:32:54 <Eric> Yes, tara is down basin, I think she should report anything that is happening down there
13:33:21 <Dave from B™> Arty lasts over 20 minutes. That's probably what we are seeing
13:33:26 <ynpvisitor45> Arty 1512
13:34:49 <Eric> clouds on gardiner static are cool
13:34:51 <ynpvisitor89> castle steamy
13:35:42 <ynpvisitor45> Found a good book for Dave. It was on the need to read table at the library.
13:36:06 <Jeff in CT> Crepuscular rays
13:37:21 <ynpvisitor45> Well, enjoy people watching while it lasts.
13:39:29 <Dave from B™> Permission to flag Giant in GT?
13:40:32 <ynpvisitor92> I'd say a wise idea until we hear from Tara, since she's down there.
13:40:50 <Jeff in CT> Once had a excellent view of "anti-crepuscular rays" over the sand dunes near Stovepipe Wells in DVNP
13:42:39 <Dave from B™> Someone beat me too it
13:42:41 <Eric> Giant eruption has been removed
13:42:49 <Dave from B™> to*
13:43:23 <ynpvisitor92> Speaking of Giant and anti-crep rays, after the July 6, 2007 Giant, we saw that very thing on our way back up to the lodge after 9 pm at sunset. Really amazing as the rays converged on a point just over Old Faithful.
13:43:37 <Bill> What is the designation for "the grove" / "purple haze" ? I wrote it down earlier, but it didnt save.
13:44:40 <ynpvisitor92> I have a set of cables, FWIW.
13:45:50 <Dave from B™> It's #5.
13:46:24 <Eric> I believe it is UNNG-GHG-5
13:46:25 <Bill> Sweet, thanks!
13:46:37 <Eric> For it's full title :-D
13:47:47 <Eric> UNNG-GHG-15 is that muddy hole across the BW from exclamation.
13:48:09 <Bill> If it keeps growing it's not going to be unnamed for long.
13:48:26 <Eric> UNNG-GHG-16 is the new/old hole near doublet and UNNG-GHG-17 is the new bigger geyser near pump
13:49:07 <Bill> While I'm thinking about it, not much new activity on the new one near pump
13:49:18 <Dave from B™> So what do the 2 N's stand for?
13:49:19 <Bill> no eruptions since the 27th at around 7-8pm
13:49:37 <Bill> ground is still slowly breathing about an inch or so though.
13:49:40 <Eric> I saw you mention that, last field report in GT is about 3 hours earlier.
13:50:34 <Jeff in CT> Electric Peak wc is very neat as well
14:04:54 <Dave from B™> Time to go home and get ready for the game. Have a great evening everyone. GO DODGERS!!!
14:05:35 <Kevin L™> Good Knight. And Dodgers too.
14:08:56 <Kevin L™> Grand
14:22:11 <Jeff in CT> see ya
14:22:26 <Kevin L™> Good Knight
14:27:21 <BACK2BACK> evening
14:28:00 <Kevin L™> Good Knight. They did kick some butt last Knight.
14:28:27 <BACK2BACK> yep...big day raising the banner and the 7-zip ... nice start
14:29:25 <BACK2BACK> lovely day in the park
14:30:17 <BACK2BACK> no wonder there are few in park times
14:32:45 <BACK2BACK> hope the Knights win tonight
14:33:18 <Kevin L™> I am looking forward to the game. Be fun next Wednesday too.
14:36:04 <Kevin L™> Even DMV is getting in on it:
14:45:43 <BACK2BACK> will be fun to resume the rivalry
14:46:33 <Kevin L™> That was a lot of fun last year. I remember kidding about it around this time of year. Never thought it would happen.
14:47:48 <BACK2BACK> did you get new pletes? i wonder if we have Stanley Cup plates....
14:50:47 <Kevin L™> I have the 150 year Battle Born plates with the State flag. Funds go to the museums.
14:55:24 <Bill> I'm out for the weekend! Be back on Tuesday. Have a good holiday weekend everyone!
14:55:40 <BACK2BACK> bye Bill
14:56:02 <BACK2BACK> we have a bunch of plates available including steam locomotives
14:56:08 <Kevin L™> Knight Bill
14:56:08 <BACK2BACK> no Knights plates tho
14:56:50 <Kevin L™> They have a train plate here but it is for the Virginia and Truckee up north.
15:01:47 <ynpvisitor101> of
15:14:47 <BACK2BACK> i see Beartooth Highway closes tomorrow for the season with the storm coming in
15:19:06 <BACK2BACK> grotto?
15:43:42 <ynpvisitor59> Back2back what?
15:54:56 <BACK2BACK> daisy
15:58:37 <ynpvisitor21> I thought it was Giants or SBs.
15:59:03 <BACK2BACK> i saw them on the 17th :)
15:59:13 <ynpvisitor21> Anyway, the Knights can not win back to back titles, as they lost.
15:59:46 <ynpvisitor21> You got back to back Giants?
16:00:39 <BACK2BACK> SB and Giant back 2 back
16:01:31 <ynpvisitor21> Na, that is one and then the other. Like BH and Grand.
16:03:12 <BACK2BACK> less than 8h apart is back 2 back for me
16:12:35 <ynpvisitor97> Isn't the Stanley Cup eons away?
16:13:18 <ynpvisitor97> I'm confused.
16:17:21 <ynpvisitor21> It is only 11 months or somethg like that.
16:18:02 <ynpvisitor21> I think they try and have it done before they start the world series.
16:18:23 <ynpvisitor21> It is a winter sport you know?
16:23:37 <ynpvisitor21> Well, no BH in the light. Enjoy what ever is left today.
16:25:54 <Kevin L™> The Knight could do back to back in 2020.
16:39:53 <BACK2BACK> wait, they have to wait for the CAPS threepeat
16:40:49 <BACK2BACK> white bugs ... just in time for hockey
17:46:46 <Kevin L™> Where did graham go?
19:22:30 <ynpvisitor29> He is watching hockey practice.
19:52:24 <ynpvisitor77> I bet he and Kevin don’t like tean
19:52:38 <ynpvisitor77> Teams from Pennsylvania.
20:33:08 <Kevin L™> Tara confirmed that BH went during the power outage.
