01:13:07 <ynpvisitor53> Looks like the winter is here
03:56:58 <ynpvisitor89> It is no wonder I saw nothing last night
04:05:23 <Rice> Damn Dark this morning.
04:06:49 <ynpvisitor89> snow covered dome dark
04:23:18 <Rice> Ahh Snow....
04:47:12 <ynpvisitor71> West Entrance looks like winter
04:50:40 <LindaG> Hmmm could be an easy day today
05:10:46 <Dave from B™> That was a short fall
05:15:48 <ynpvisitor28> Little snow and ice on the webcam
05:16:41 <ynpvisitor28> LindaG, looks like it could clear! K
05:17:40 <Rice> Turn the heater on
05:18:21 <ynpvisitor89> Press the Dome Shaker button
05:19:04 <ynpvisitor28> Don't have those buttons! :)
05:25:11 <Rice> Nice View
05:26:06 <Rice> Move it around a lot, maybe the motors will produce enough heat to melt it off?
05:26:21 <Dave from B™> Rice, the dome has a heater
05:26:47 <Rice> Humm, did not enough that.
05:26:56 <Rice> ^know
05:27:09 <Dave from B™> It takes some time but it will melt off eventually
05:28:44 <Dave from B™> Good morning Heinrich
05:30:02 <ynpvisitor89> I think that is a different HK
05:30:47 <Dave from B™> Thanks
05:31:05 <ynpvisitor89> it might be Kathy S
05:31:43 <HK> AKA......Hellroaring Kat
05:32:02 <ynpvisitor89> :)
05:32:24 <HK> 89?
05:32:36 <ynpvisitor89> Joe
05:33:01 <HK> Hey Joe! Mornin<
05:33:15 <Dave from B™> Hellroaring...your demeanor or your favorite hiking spot?:)
05:33:20 <ynpvisitor89> Morning Hk
05:33:25 <HK> Hey Joe, mornin'
05:35:03 <HK> Dave from B™, A little of both...more demeanor! HAHA
05:36:51 <Dave from B™> Great!! We need someone to keep people in line around here...it's a rowdy bunch.
05:37:33 <HK> Happy to be of assistance!!
05:37:56 <ynpvisitor30> I'd advise using Kat instead of HK :D :D :D
05:38:16 <ynpvisitor30> http://geysertimes.org/user.php?id=61
05:41:31 <Dave from B™> He might not be the friendliest but he knows geysers and I'm happy he shares his knowledge with us. We all can't be like Kevin.:)
05:41:45 <Betty> morning all
05:42:41 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
05:43:06 <ynpvisitor89> Good afternoon Betty
05:43:55 <Betty> hi Dave and Joe
05:44:37 <Betty> looks strange without predictions
05:45:48 <ynpvisitor89> The domes been covered with snow since about 0220
05:46:35 <ynpvisitor89> Barely saw Old Faithful at that time
05:54:49 <Jeff in CT> Morning all - bit chilly, eh
05:55:03 <Jeff in CT> Static webcam is kinda nice, though
05:55:30 <Betty> welcome to the freezer
05:55:53 <Dave from B™> 30F will be a warm temp in a few months
05:56:23 <Jeff in CT> Even in these parts
05:56:34 <Jeff in CT> Suppose I'll actually have to do some work today...
05:59:25 <Jeff in CT> Is that Lion on the static webcam?
06:00:20 <Betty> no
06:00:37 <Betty> Lion is not visible on static
06:00:47 <Betty> that´s Dome
06:00:57 <Jeff in CT> Dome ie ;D
06:01:26 <Betty> yup :-D
06:02:30 <ynpvisitor89> Dome on stream also
06:22:09 <Betty> how is the view downbasin?
06:23:31 <Betty> hmm
06:30:55 <ynpvisitor77> Road from Norris to Canyon is closed
06:31:11 <ynpvisitor77> Must have snowed more there
06:31:16 <Jimbo Tantalum> Yes, I love tantalum https://io9.gizmodo.com/5906833/tantalum-is-the-most-important-element-youve-never-heard-of
06:31:35 <Jimbo Tantalum> Here comes the snow deedle dee dee
06:32:26 <Betty> Dome ie
06:35:47 <Jeff in CT> What is that just to the right of OF, in the static webcam?
06:35:58 <Betty> I don´t think OF went yet
06:36:23 <Betty> that is a small side vent
06:36:47 <Betty> it shows up usually just before the eruption
06:37:09 <Jeff in CT> OK,usually not seen in the WC view
06:37:20 <Betty> people still there
06:37:46 <Betty> you can see it from streaming too
06:38:05 <Jeff in CT> funny that I never noticed it before
06:38:43 <Betty> I wonder what we will see and miss with the new view
06:40:19 <Betty> this looks better for OF
06:42:46 <ynpvisitor103> :P
06:52:11 <Kevin L™> Why does the ice always cover only the part we want to see?
06:52:47 <Betty> morning Kevin
06:53:50 <Kevin L™> Hi
06:55:08 <Kevin L™> The Oktoberfest cams are working again.
07:03:10 <Jimbo Tantalum> Prost!
07:07:16 <ynpvisitor89> dome on static
07:07:59 <Betty> oans zwoa g´suffa!
07:08:49 <Jeff in CT> Too early for lunch
07:09:35 <Jimbo Tantalum> Couldn't have said it better myself, Betty (I looked it up)
07:09:58 <Betty> :-)
07:10:54 <Dave from B™> I can't even handle the English language...you want me to learn another one?
07:11:51 <Jeff in CT> Maybe beer for second breakfast?
07:12:53 <ynpvisitor89> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8D8Ludwx4s
07:13:18 <Kevin L™> Isn't beer a breakfast food in Germany?
07:20:28 <ynpvisitor14> Slow webcam melt this AM!
07:21:14 <Betty> this looks much better than minutes ago
07:21:32 <ynpvisitor14> It does..
07:22:13 <Jeff in CT> FWIW, my Lion prediction is 10:24, +/- a barn door, based on the three reported eruptions since last initial
07:22:13 <Dave from B™> Almost time to start gazing:)
07:22:58 <ynpvisitor14> Its all sliding down!
07:23:38 <ynpvisitor89> bazinga!
07:25:48 <Jeff in CT> Is that vapor rising from Ear Spring?
07:26:06 <Dave from B™> Grand should be the first major sighting today
07:26:43 <Betty> cool, it´s gone
07:27:00 <ynpvisitor89> rside 1130 Grnd 1500
07:31:30 <Dave from B™> Kevin, did you get to watch the Dodger game last night?
07:32:35 <Jeff in CT> While I dislike the Yankees, I can't fathom the Soxs - my son is the other way round, gonna have so fun tonight! CT, btw, is 50/50 split between the two
07:33:36 <ynpvisitor11> BH in 3.
07:33:45 <Dave from B™> yep...you're stuck in the middle and I can't stand either one....my father was a huge Yankee fan...Since I was a Dodger fan that was interesting
07:33:52 <ynpvisitor11> So BH before Grand
07:34:11 <Dave from B™> Why do you say Grand at 1500?
07:34:26 <ynpvisitor89> do a /gt
07:34:27 <Dave from B™> Did we just miss it?
07:35:28 <Dave from B™> last Grand in GT was 11:41 ago...perfect doubel interval
07:35:35 <ynpvisitor11> I do not agree with that time either. So Grand before BH. Grand in the next hour.
07:38:00 <Dave from B™> What s putting out steam on GH just to the right of OF steam
07:41:31 <Kevin L™> I watched a bit of the Dodger game Dave. It was much better than the other one I was watching.
07:42:17 <Betty> Castle ie
07:43:02 <Dave from B™> I don't have the MLB network so I listened via radio:(
07:43:17 <Jeff in CT> That ice rim is nicer looking than the dome bracket thingies
07:43:22 <Dave from B™> Yeah, Tara is in the basin
07:43:49 <ynpvisitor89> tara has Castle 0935
07:44:57 <ynpvisitor11> They can not be playing baseball outside. It snowed already. Arena baseball?
07:46:50 <Kevin L™> Didn't snow in LA.
07:47:01 <Jimbo Tantalum> Luckily they can close Brewers' stadium
07:47:17 <Kevin L™> Took me a while to figure out where it was on.
07:49:18 <Dave from B™> Game 2 tonight is on FS1
07:51:05 <Kevin L™> That is better. The box in my computer room doesn't pickup MLB but it does do FS1
07:52:11 <Betty> bubblers steaming?
07:52:24 <Betty> looks like
07:53:13 <ynpvisitor11> We are going to miss Grand
07:53:54 <Betty> there it is
07:54:51 <ynpvisitor11> Wow, 2 6 hour grands, what a surprise.
08:02:02 <ynpvisitor11> I am not sure with it this cold, we would see Giant?
08:02:25 <Betty> OF?
08:03:00 <Betty> on static?
08:03:47 <Betty> seems to be over
08:03:50 <Jeff in CT> Looked like it, I caught the tail end
08:04:02 <Betty> runoff is steamy
08:04:16 <Betty> people are leaving
08:04:23 <Jeff in CT> call it 10:04 ie
08:04:44 <Jeff in CT> with a '?'
08:04:49 <ynpvisitor74> on static at 10:02 ie
08:05:05 <Jeff in CT> that's better, thanks 74
08:07:02 <ynpvisitor11> Back in a couple for BH.
08:20:00 <Kevin L™> Bubblers look really active now Betty
08:32:17 <Jimbo Tantalum> Great scene
08:32:54 <LindaG> The sun and the snow are lovely
08:33:14 <BSK> Indeed!
08:34:36 <Jeff in CT> Would be a great day to be out walking the boards
08:36:39 <LindaG> Looks a little icy on the boards
08:39:04 <Jeff in CT> Do they mind crampons?
08:40:12 <Kevin L™> Snow causes cancer.
08:40:45 <Jeff in CT> According to Joe Jackson, "everything causes cancer"
08:41:01 <BSK> Yak Trax (or similar traction devices) work well on the wood boardwalks, but might increase wear and tear, but there are no requests not to use them.
08:41:18 <BSK> They DON'T work well on the composite material boardwalks.
08:42:03 <Kevin L™> The older jugwalks are really slick. The newer ones have a tread and are mixed with woodchips.
08:42:06 <Jeff in CT> Yak Trax, thanks BSK - what I need when running the snow thrower - our driveway has about a 5% grade
08:43:40 <BSK> I was "cocky" about not needing traction thingies on my shoes until I broke a rib after slipping on ice. I use them now.
08:49:21 <Jeff in CT> Just ordered a pair from Amazon, hopefully no snow in CT until after Monday
08:50:57 <Betty> enjoy BH, bbl
08:51:18 <Dave from B™> BSK, I hear ya. Jeff, can you order me a couple pait, too?:D
08:51:24 <Dave from B™> pair*
08:51:48 <LindaG> That drop of water is quite annoying 🙄
08:52:08 <Jeff in CT> Amazon makes it real easy to keep ordering the same thing over and over; I'll enter a subscription - we'll get a new pair once a month!
08:53:07 <Jeff in CT> Time for lunch, hopefully Lion will fit into my (rather large) 4 hr window, its due now
08:54:27 <Dave from B™> Today, HAS to be a F&M or Giant day...they are due!
08:55:02 <ynpvisitor67> Personally I find Giant is overdue
08:55:09 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
08:55:24 <Dave from B™> Hi, DG
08:55:30 <Kevin L™> Are you going this weekend Dave?
08:55:54 <ynpvisitor999®> F&M has been all over the place as of late, so I wouldn't be surprised if it were to do some longer interval
08:56:24 <Dave from B™> Kevin, no prior commitments in the way. I'm hoping to try for SB next weekend
08:56:43 <Dave from B™> aye....No, I'm not going this weekend
08:57:36 <ynpvisitor999®> assuming SB keeps doing these intervals, have fun watching a quietly steaming vent...
08:58:00 <Kevin L™> Hey they finally opened the bathrooms at the lower gas station. Just in time!
08:59:34 <Dave from B™> I will take a Friday off if I have to
09:04:09 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, using 6d12h would give Steamboat on upcoming Sunday morning, with the next one on Saturday evening. We'll have to see what it does though.
09:04:47 <Dave from B™> yep...next weekend still in play unless something weird happens this weekend
09:05:03 <Kevin L™> Dave needs to sneak up on it.
09:05:52 <Dave from B™> Yep...next time I'm coming in from Decker Island
09:06:03 <ynpvisitor999®> I bet some camouflage clothes would help as well - especially the brown-colored ones
09:06:51 <Jimbo Tantalum> Based on the snow scenario for next week, might need white gear
09:07:53 <Kevin L™> How about this? https://www.partycity.com/adult-oversized-mad-cat-mask-773168.html?cgid=costume-accessories-halloween-masks
09:09:00 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd be upset if it didn't work for Dave
09:11:43 <Dave from B™> It's hard being a fair weather gazer in October
09:13:41 <Dave from B™> I just looked at the forecast......probably time to look for an airplane out of here
09:15:11 <sparekitty> dave from b, will you be at SB next weekend? I'm hoping to be there sometime next weekend, depending on the road conditions from Cascade
09:15:58 <Dave from B™> That is the plan but cold cold wet weather will be a fsctor
09:16:33 <Kevin L™> Maybe you should bring a husky costume.
09:18:29 <Dave from B™> If it is cold we may still go but not for 12 hours...maybe 3-4 hours and then go warm up somewhere and return later
09:18:47 <Kevin L™> Try this: https://www.thewarmingstore.com/mobilewarming-heated-apparel-dual-power-jacket-12v.html
09:20:25 <Dave from B™> an electric coat? haha
09:22:14 <ynpvisitor97> it will drift into Monday for sure if you go Dave
09:22:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome
09:22:44 <ynpvisitor97> Nike makes them now, heated coats
09:23:27 <Dave from B™> A thermos will keep me warm enough
09:23:31 <ynpvisitor97> I sure wish Giant would go again for Tara before she leaves
09:23:55 <ynpvisitor97> hot toddies Dave?
09:24:16 <Dave from B™> not usually
09:26:32 <ynpvisitor999®> 48 days until Giantess surpasses Morning's 2013 - 2018 interval
09:38:15 <ynpvisitor999®> oh hi OF
09:38:39 <LindaG> Rainbow
09:41:29 <Craig Laptop™> o/
09:42:42 <Craig Laptop™> Tail end of Daisy?
09:43:32 <Dave from B™> Hi Craig
09:43:57 <Kevin L™> Would that be isy?
09:45:40 <Craig Laptop™> 33 degrees there. brr.
09:49:28 <ynpvisitor999®> seems to be GHG-5 doing something
09:54:03 <Dave from B™> Time to count fish for the rest of the day. Good luck with the biggies
09:54:17 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Dave
09:54:31 <ynpvisitor999®> nice Bee surging there
09:55:16 <Kevin L™> Do you work for scale when you count fish Dave?
10:05:58 <Kevin L™> Indy?
10:06:17 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
10:06:23 <Kevin L™> Sending txt
10:07:29 <Kevin L™> Thanks Dave.
10:08:05 <Jimbo Tantalum> Dang, this will be a close one. I have to drive to somewhere (~30 minutes) and be there at 3 PM EDT.
10:09:18 <ynpvisitor28> nice long interval
10:09:43 <ynpvisitor999®> this is most likely a double interval
10:11:11 <ynpvisitor28> so you think it erupted at 2300
10:14:08 <ynpvisitor28> often would arrive to wait for Beehive only to find out that there were no other gazers there
10:14:14 <Jimbo Tantalum> really
10:14:18 <ynpvisitor28> just visitors with gt
10:14:52 <ynpvisitor28> 3 days ago a family waited for 3 hours on a cold morning and left
10:15:15 <ynpvisitor28> Beehive erupted an hour or so later
10:15:39 <ynpvisitor28> they didn't allow for overnight and cold weather
10:20:27 <ynpvisitor28> Beehive
10:20:29 <Jimbo Tantalum> just in time!
10:20:46 <Kevin L™> Rainbow
10:23:16 <LindaG> A nice one too!
10:24:48 <Kevin L™> That was a great eruption
10:24:50 <ynpvisitor999®> that was fun
10:25:46 <ynpvisitor999®> nice LC jets
10:27:11 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
10:44:34 <Dave from B™> yw
10:45:54 <ynpvisitor36> Well BH did not make that 3 hour prediction. It went early, and I am late
11:11:30 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ie
11:19:05 <LindaG> Lc?
11:19:29 <Kevin L™> yep
11:51:46 <ynpvisitor89> Giant ?
11:51:59 <ynpvisitor89> or GHP
11:52:20 <Kevin L™> Grotto 1350
11:52:22 <ynpvisitor999®> looks more like Grotto/Rocket
12:30:17 <Kevin L™> Ear Spring looking hot
12:38:37 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome
12:39:22 <LindaG> Off to right?
12:39:43 <ynpvisitor999®> yes - that mount behind the trees
12:40:05 <GO SOMETHING> yeah its the weekend
12:42:39 <Kevin L™> Weekend?
12:43:11 <GO SOMETHING> yes...and a long one for some
12:43:16 <Kevin L™> We do have something in common Graham. We both don't like Pennsylvania teams.
12:43:23 <GO SOMETHING> not a good Knight, but slightly better for the caps
12:44:42 <Kevin L™> It was pretty ugly. Not a good sign when you pull your star goalie halfway through the game (and it should have been sooner).
13:25:50 <ynpvisitor999®> Depie
13:25:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I think
13:26:08 <GO SOMETHING> dome
13:30:23 <GO SOMETHING> lc?
13:31:19 <GO SOMETHING> hi Betty re you home now?
13:31:51 <Betty> hi Graham, yes, since wednesday
13:32:28 <GO SOMETHING> so in recovery mode now?
13:33:30 <Betty> somewhat yes
13:33:55 <Betty> are you home too?
13:34:40 <GO SOMETHING> yes, got home Sunday night. i need a vacation to recover
13:34:57 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
13:34:58 <Betty> haha, I can relate :-)
13:35:06 <Betty> hi DG
13:35:54 <Kevin L™> Vacation?
13:36:37 <Betty> time you need when you had your Grandchildren for a week
13:37:08 <Kevin L™> Now that I can understand.
13:37:18 <Betty> I knew
13:38:08 <Betty> Graham, did you break Giant or was it me?
13:40:58 <Kevin L™> I think it was Dave. He snuck down there and filled it with old fish.
13:43:08 <Dave from B™> I did lose a couple of pieces of paper at Giant this summer
13:43:38 <Dave from B™> But they were headed to the river
13:43:57 <Kevin L™> Wow. I just was looking at the Amtrak tracker and the Southwest Chief that left LA going to Chicago is only in mid Kansas, 16 hours late!
13:44:20 <Kevin L™> Were those fish wrappers Dave?
13:45:03 <ynpvisitor999®> sigh... a strong GHP 1430
13:45:27 <GO SOMETHING> lots of steam
13:45:27 <ynpvisitor999®> guess that'll be it for today as far as Giant is concerned
13:45:35 <GO SOMETHING> ot?
13:46:34 <ynpvisitor999®> you can see Old Tardy unobstructed by trees when cam is zoomed in on Spasmodic
13:46:50 <ynpvisitor999®> it's then to the left of frame
13:47:07 <ynpvisitor999®> not this far, though
13:47:33 <ynpvisitor999®> well, actually, I may have been wrong there
13:47:38 <ynpvisitor999®> those trees... ugh
13:47:42 <GO SOMETHING> both Bulger and OT per Tara
13:48:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger must be that plume behind the trees and OT to the right of Bulger between the trees
13:48:43 <ynpvisitor999®> as I do remember seeing OT unobstructed by trees once or twice
13:49:31 <Betty> I can see OT
13:51:12 <LindaG> Hmm to left or right for OT?
13:51:54 <Betty> it is in that small gap between the trees
13:51:59 <Kevin L™> Graham saw OT last night
13:53:18 <Betty> that is Spasmodic
13:54:23 <Betty> OT is not ie anymore
13:55:19 <Betty> and that is Grand :-D
13:55:24 <Kevin L™> Nice
13:55:28 <Betty> nice start
13:56:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Steamboat @ 1257-1320: Had 5-10 feet from SV (no runoff) and every 2-3m 15-20 feet from NV. Some concerted play. If I interpret it right, this is bbev's last note on Steamboat for a while.
13:57:11 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, and may as well add that there's no gravel in the trough
13:57:26 <GO SOMETHING> dome
13:58:14 <LindaG> Well I started with grand so I'm ending with it. Off at 16:00
13:58:35 <Kevin L™> :)
13:58:45 <GO SOMETHING> hi Linda. bye Linda
14:00:33 <LindaG> Night all
14:00:54 <Betty> night Linda
14:01:21 <Dave from B™> Kevin 16 hours late...you sure it isn't 8 hours early?
14:01:50 <Kevin L™> Track took a hit from flash floods by Kingman I guess.
14:02:18 <Kevin L™> Normally a 30h trip. Glad I am not on this one!
14:03:15 <Kevin L™> I was wondering if today's train would catch it.
14:03:57 <GO SOMETHING> OT was oo late for me last night Kevin
14:04:44 <Kevin L™> Think it was too late for the caps too.
14:05:36 <GO SOMETHING> Bill will be headed back to California, towing the trailer
14:05:48 <Kevin L™> :P
14:05:57 <Kevin L™> Nasty trip for sure!
14:05:57 <GO SOMETHING> he picked a good year to work at the Norris bookstore
14:06:06 <Kevin L™> That he did!
14:07:06 <GO SOMETHING> hope SB is still active next year, you never know, it has had multi-year activity in the past
14:07:37 <Kevin L™> I was sure hoping Giantess would join in.
14:09:09 <Betty> OF
14:09:41 <Kevin L™> It is Coors 0, Schlitz 1 in the bottom of the 5th.
14:10:25 <GO SOMETHING> i dont think Giantess has a strong connection to SB
14:10:46 <Kevin L™> It does with the Geyser Hill stuff.

17:26:22 <Kevin L™> I think Giant went to Palm Springs
17:26:54 <GO SOMETHING> given Giants sluggishness, it could be SB
17:27:37 <ynpvisitor30> guess we will find out - sure is interesting

17:49:40 <Kevin L™> You know it was bad when you pull your star goalie halfway through the game (and they should have done it sooner).
