04:14:28 <ynpvisitor89> YNM seismo says no Steamboat last night
04:16:13 <ynpvisitor30> let's hope it erupts in daylight
04:41:28 <ynpvisitor89> OF
04:56:13 <Dave from B™> Steamboat must have thought I was there this weekend.
04:56:44 <Dave from B™> Longer interval than the last 7
04:57:20 <ynpvisitor89> It did feel threatened that you might sneak in :)
04:58:33 <Dave from B™> Now, next weekend won't be in play:(
04:59:21 <ynpvisitor30> might be waiting for the next one :D
04:59:50 <ynpvisitor89> it could try for 13 d, remains to be seen
05:04:24 <ynpvisitor30> today looks like the nicest weather before more snow moves in - hope for today!
05:16:57 <Dave from B™> The 3 biggies seem to be taking their sweet time this goaround
05:20:31 <ynpvisitor89> There might have been a Giant last night, but probably only Grotto, viewing was horrible, daytime gazers will notice if it was Giant.
05:37:07 <ynpvisitor89> Seismo says: Gazers arriving at Steamboat
05:38:18 <Dave from B™> That is an odd seismo
05:47:37 <ynpvisitor105> Riverside?
05:48:16 <ynpvisitor105> time would fit for a double
05:48:30 <ynpvisitor89> slight steam I'm expecting more
05:48:49 <ynpvisitor105> k
05:49:31 <ynpvisitor105> but Depression did a nice bubble
05:50:15 <ynpvisitor89> Not gospel but based on early morning steam should be more... I have been wrong many times before
05:51:04 <ynpvisitor105> not steam there was water
05:55:03 <ynpvisitor89> I was referring to Rside not sure on Dep.
06:07:22 <ynpvisitor97s> of
06:12:56 <Betty> Morning all
06:15:00 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty, Terry
06:15:46 <ynpvisitor20> You had bad timing yesterday Betty
06:17:31 <Betty> Let me guess, beehive?
06:19:03 <ynpvisitor20> About 2m after you said bye
06:21:14 <ynpvisitor14> That cruel little bug
06:22:28 <Dave from B™> It's been over a week since any of the Big 3 erupted. It's been awhile since you could say that.
06:24:30 <Betty iPhone> I think I should quit now to give Giant a reason 😁
06:24:50 <Betty iPhone> Bbl
06:28:40 <ynpvisitor101> See Dave, good you were not able to go this weekend, it would have only extended your prison sentence!
06:29:16 <Dave from B™> haha 101! But, now when do I go?
06:29:47 <ynpvisitor101> Yeah, tough call. Weekends may be out of the picture
06:31:02 <ynpvisitor101> Hk and Suzanne are back I see, will Giant torment them or erupt soon?
06:34:42 <Dave from B™> They have spent a lot of time in the park this summer!
06:35:01 <ynpvisitor101> Tara posted Grotto. I wonder how long she can stay?
06:35:21 <Dave from B™> Where does she live in the offseason? WA?
06:35:38 <ynpvisitor101> Micah is leaving today
06:36:07 <Dave from B™> the place will be devoid of gazers in a short time
06:56:14 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin, sparekitty
06:57:08 <sparekitty> hi dave! how's billings today? a number of my colleagues are there for a meeting.
06:57:23 <ynpvisitor89> Indy
06:57:27 <ynpvisitor89> .
06:57:28 <ynpvisitor89> .
06:57:29 <ynpvisitor89> .
06:58:05 <Dave from B™> Mostly cloudy...expecting showers at some point today
06:58:35 <Kevin L™> I wonder if the 0442 BH was not a BH
06:58:39 <sparekitty> i picked a meeting in orlando. maybe better weather but disneyland, that was the main reason
06:58:54 <Dave from B™> What field are you in?
07:00:29 <sparekitty> i am a certified research administrator. i handle finance and compliance for epidemiologic research. lots of paperwork and rules.
07:00:32 <ynpvisitor89> I'll have to look at the capture for that 0442, for now I'll delete it
07:01:22 <Kevin L™> I sent a text. Too strong to take a chance.
07:03:22 <Kevin L™> I haven't got the text yet. Anyone get it?
07:04:15 <ynpvisitor64> I got 2
07:04:16 <ynpvisitor101> I got it
07:04:25 <ynpvisitor101> Twice
07:04:34 <ynpvisitor41> yes 2 texts
07:05:05 <Kevin L™> I guess verizon is saving them
07:05:12 <Dave from B™> 2 > 0
07:05:23 <ynpvisitor41> yay Beehive
07:05:26 <ynpvisitor101> The 442 could not have happened
07:07:54 <ynpvisitor89> 0442 is gone I'll post lion ini at 0442
07:09:48 <ynpvisitor89> can someone check the capture to verify?
07:12:20 <ynpvisitor64> A <4.5 hour interval from BH wouldn't be the craziest thing to happen on Geyser Hill of late.
07:13:17 <ynpvisitor89> It sure looked like BH at 0442, there were no other lions
07:16:40 <ynpvisitor59> Maybe you shouldn't chang
07:17:01 <ynpvisitor59> just delete
07:25:58 <ynpvisitor64> Lion?
07:26:33 <BSK> Yes, and timing would be in line with a 04:42 initial...
07:26:37 <Kevin L™> It was very dark. It looked like either BH or Lion went though. Since BH went a bit ago I would guess Lion.
07:27:21 <ynpvisitor90> A GHD
07:27:41 <ynpvisitor89> Tks Kevin
07:27:59 <ynpvisitor90> I see SB is waiting for Dave to visit and then leave.
07:28:44 <ynpvisitor89> this is not ini
07:29:12 <Dave from B™> Maybe I'll just stay away all year than
07:35:04 <Kevin L™> My BH text messages just came in.
07:35:17 <ynpvisitor89> :)
07:39:53 <ynpvisitor89> Kevin did you get three
07:40:35 <Kevin L™> I got 2
07:40:55 <Jeff in CT> Morning
07:41:07 <Kevin L™> Hi
07:41:14 <Jeff in CT> If that was Lion at 4:42, then within 1 hour of prediction, fwiw.
07:41:16 <ynpvisitor89> I sent two, one without a time
07:42:08 <ynpvisitor89> I reentered it as loin then the following 0604
07:42:39 <Kevin L™> I only got 2, one with a time, one without. Just checked it again.
07:43:23 <ynpvisitor89> Jeff do you have a way of predicting Lion?
07:43:33 <Dave from B™> Tara was only person at BH
07:43:46 <ynpvisitor90> Dave, SB will have a lot of pent up steam if you do not visit.
07:43:49 <ynpvisitor59> F&M overnight
07:44:20 <Dave from B™> Glad it went...sorry no one saw it
07:44:26 <Jeff in CT> '89 - yes and no, there is a nearly linear correlation between Lion initial intervals and number of eruptions in a sequence, but...
07:44:37 <Kevin L™> Tara fixed it.
07:44:55 <ynpvisitor89> Thanks Jeff
07:45:21 <Jeff in CT> while the correlation has r=0.95, the variance is very large, +/- 4-6 hours - there is another factor impacting Lion aside from the number of events in a sequence
07:45:49 <Kevin L™> Hope Giant goes for her before she leaves.
07:46:16 <Jeff in CT> Correlation is: time between initials in hours = 7.16 + (number of events in sequence including initial)*1.67
07:46:37 <Kevin L™> Going to be a steamy takeoff for the train in Chama. Looks like they had rain last night.
07:46:46 <Jeff in CT> Based on past year's worth of data. Using more or less data does not improve correlation
07:49:04 <ynpvisitor89> Thank you, Jeff that helps a lot.
07:54:30 <ynpvisitor89> Enjoy the nice view, dark nights are difficult, has you asking did I really see that?
07:57:25 <ynpvisitor89> ynm seismo is still clear
07:58:18 <ynpvisitor89> still and clear does not sound like good english
07:59:51 <ynpvisitor90> A LC major.
08:00:08 <ynpvisitor89> :)
08:00:38 <Dave from B™> Longest Giant interval since early June
08:02:46 <ynpvisitor89> Bye all got to go keep watch on the seismo
08:03:36 <ynpvisitor90> The rain cooled down SB and Giant.
08:03:43 <ynpvisitor90> And BH
08:08:41 <Dave from B™> Grand or Turban?
08:08:56 <Dave from B™> Looks like Grand
08:09:25 <ynpvisitor59> there was water over the trees
08:10:29 <Dave from B™> Thanks 59....not watching closely
08:11:07 <Kevin L™> Did you watch the Dodgers last night Dave?
08:11:18 <Jeff in CT> At 18:38, I saw a small feature on the webcam, looks like might have been Spanker?
08:11:27 <Jeff in CT> 18:38, yesterday
08:12:12 <Dave from B™> I did..sorry I didn't respond to your text. I DVR'd it and was about an hour behind the actual game
08:12:56 <ynpvisitor91> So F&M erupted overnight...
08:13:07 <Kevin L™> No sweat. Was it me or was the pitching horrible on both sides and the home plate ump even worse?
08:13:18 <ynpvisitor91> Let’s hope Giant and SB are nicer
08:14:06 <ynpvisitor90> Daisy
08:14:14 <ynpvisitor90> ie
08:14:58 <Dave from B™> I thought the Dodger pitchers pitched well except for the inning where Buehler went from the stretch when a runner got on base and he was really uncomfortable for about 3 batters. I felt bad for him. He's a great pitcher.
08:15:22 <Dave from B™> Dodgers left way too many runners on base
08:15:45 <ynpvisitor90> Easy to keep track of
08:16:14 <Kevin L™> They just seemed to be way out of the box and all over the place.
08:16:17 <Dave from B™> Maybe today all 3 biggies will erupt
08:16:32 <ynpvisitor90> Better to have them stop for a visit, then just run around them.
08:17:09 <ynpvisitor90> Sprinkler, Anemone, and Aurum?
08:17:31 <Dave from B™> I expect the Dodgers to win the series this afternoon
08:17:52 <BSK> Those three are the first "3 biggies" that come to my mind. ;)
08:18:27 <ynpvisitor90> Big is relative.
08:19:22 <Jeff in CT> THis was small, check out the webcam archive on YT.
08:19:59 <Jeff in CT> By the way, I looked at a random middle of the night beehive, and the 4:42 am Lion - big difference, I would agree that the 4:42 was Lion ini
08:20:17 <ynpvisitor90> I guess Dave was calling for BH, Grand, and Castle.
08:20:31 <Jeff in CT> But I am no expert when it comes to geyser ID's
08:21:02 <ynpvisitor90> Well nothing to see here, Enjoy that Castle in a few.
08:22:23 <ynpvisitor89> lion was just a splash at 1019
08:23:18 <ynpvisitor89> Thank you Jeff
08:24:57 <Jeff in CT> Lion seems to have occasional minors between 40-60 minutes after a major, there may still be a major at 10:40ish
08:31:42 <Craig Laptop™> hi all
08:31:52 <BSK> Mornin'
08:32:17 <Dave from B™> Morning Mr Laptop
08:32:51 <Craig Laptop™> Unfortunately I can't bring my desktop in my backpack :)
08:33:37 <Dave from B™> You need a bigger backpack
08:33:54 <Jeff in CT> And a portable power supply
08:34:40 <Craig Laptop™> Lol
08:35:03 <Kevin L™> Or a very long extension cord.
08:36:15 <Jeff in CT> Craig - I assume you are out in the field somewhere?
08:36:54 <Dave from B™> He better be in class right now!:D
08:36:56 <Craig Laptop™> No haha. Just waiting in the library inbetween classes
08:42:54 <Jeff in CT> Craig - what are you studying, and where?
08:42:55 <Dave from B™> I think we have Steamboat
08:43:05 <Craig Laptop™> oh wow yeah
08:43:07 <Dave from B™> see YNM seismo
08:43:37 <Dave from B™> 1025 approx seismo
08:43:41 <Eric> Here for my morning steambat
08:43:44 <Eric> steamboat
08:43:52 <BSK> Beautiful day for SB. Looking forward to on-site photos!
08:43:56 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
08:44:13 <Dave from B™> I expect HK and Suzanne are there
08:44:27 <Dave from B™> suspect*
08:44:54 <Eric> I hope sommeone is there.
08:44:56 <Jeff in CT> Very nice, only a day late
08:45:35 <Jeff in CT> Hopefully we will get some field reports
08:45:42 <Kevin L™> It thought you went Dave
08:46:07 <Kevin L™> Looks like a strong one
08:46:37 <Eric> The seismo is so hard to interpret for power.
08:47:06 <Jeff in CT> Looks like 10:25 is the start
08:47:23 <Eric> That could be the start of steam phase too
08:52:15 <ynpvisitor97> SB was waiting for this beautiful day. I bet Tom C is there, and no reports from hk or S, they may be there too.
08:53:14 <ynpvisitor97> no post yet on GT? That is different
08:54:03 <Eric> DG isn't here to post :-P
08:54:08 <Kevin L™> Not that many people there. I wouldn't leave it to report!
08:54:11 <BSK> A couple weeks ago, there was debate for several hours over whether the seismo indicated eruption or not before we saw Tantalus data and then finally on-site confirmation.
08:54:17 <ynpvisitor97> usually Emily is quick on that
08:54:38 <Dave from B™> Is that better?
08:54:44 <Eric> The seismo reacts differently to different eruptions.
08:55:03 <Dave from B™> There is no doubt on this seismo footprint compared to the last one
08:55:05 <ynpvisitor97> it does, yet in basin reports will be primary
08:55:24 <Eric> Yep, which is perfect.
08:55:49 <ynpvisitor97> soon all we will have is the seismo, so it will have to do eventually
08:55:52 <Eric> Thanks Dave
08:56:58 <Dave from B™> Might still be worth a trip on Sunday
08:57:15 <ynpvisitor97> sure, to ensure it does not erupt?
08:57:17 <Dave from B™> not sure I would go on Saturday
08:58:07 <ynpvisitor97> weather is supposed to be nice again by then
08:58:47 <ynpvisitor97> maybe hk and S will get Giant later today too...?
08:58:56 <Eric> Glad Micah is getting some hill time today
08:59:25 <ynpvisitor97> when he sees the SB post, he may not feel so great
08:59:27 <Dave from B™> nice NG
09:00:17 <Eric> Only so much time you can throw away at the prison up north
09:00:21 <BSK> Glad the steam cooperated briefly so we could see NG
09:00:27 <Eric> unng17?
09:01:08 <BSK> I think so, Eric.
09:04:49 <Eric> OF ie
09:06:55 <Jeff in CT> Wind shifted just in time
09:07:51 <BSK> Yup. I didn't want to comment on wind change too soon and jinx it.
09:08:22 <BSK> My mom jinxed poor Crosby yesterday. I don't know if that power is inherited. Taking no chances. :)
09:09:23 <Dave from B™> I felt really bad for him
09:10:11 <Craig Laptop™> My week in yellowstone this year happened to be during the Norris disturbance
09:10:13 <BSK> He went out for that first kick and she commented on how solid he is as a kicker. He missed and we both said simultaneously "
09:10:44 <BSK> "You/I jinxed him!" Later in the day she asked who she should jinx next. I said we'll have to be careful. With great power comes greater responsibility.
09:11:26 <Jeff in CT> With great power comes large electric bill
09:11:35 <BSK> That, too! :)
09:12:23 <ynpvisitor999®> Good to see a non-puny SB trace :)
09:13:44 <ynpvisitor45> Do unnamed geyers that become active like UNNG-GHG-5 usually get a name?
09:14:25 <ynpvisitor999®> depends... we still have UNNG-KLD-K13...
09:15:35 <Eric> evening DG
09:15:40 <Dave from B™> Hi DG
09:15:46 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
09:15:55 <Dave from B™> I expect Sept visitation numbers out today or tomorrow
09:18:14 <Dave from B™> Eric, where have your feet taken you in the past few days?
09:20:38 <Eric> I went up to Ape Cave yesterday and hiked the lava tube
09:21:08 <Eric> I need to find a good hike for next weekend
09:24:16 <Dave from B™> Seismo still seems to be showing SB...45 minutes and counting?
09:24:42 <ynpvisitor999®> it does that
09:26:56 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope Ear Spring doesn't become a second Improbable, where large surges don't actually lead to eruptions
09:27:27 <Dave from B™> So, with 3 of 4 erupting in last 24 hours.....
09:27:42 <Dave from B™> F&M 23, SB 22, Giant 17, Morning 9
09:33:28 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... so apparantly I missed an Aurum in plain sight
09:34:26 <BSK> Other than the little matter of steam...
09:36:12 <ynpvisitor59> Morning count isnt
09:37:16 <ynpvisitor59> Morning Count is not real. we have no idea how many there have actually been. only the few observed
09:37:25 <Dave from B™> 9 if you presume Maureen just missed an eruption yesterday
09:37:41 <Dave from B™> True 59....I'm sure we have missed a few
09:38:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Fountain logger should provide an answer when its data is in
09:38:41 <ynpvisitor59> we really need a logger there!
09:38:51 <ynpvisitor59> on Morning
09:39:17 <ynpvisitor59> and Giant too for that matter
09:39:59 <ynpvisitor999®> I asked Bill a few weeks ago, but he said there weren't any available (anymore)
09:41:05 <ynpvisitor64> The Steamboat eruption got flagged. Looks clear as day to me.
09:41:20 <ynpvisitor59> those 2 are way more crucial historically than some of the other sputs that are logged
09:41:36 <Kevin L™> Does to me to 64
09:41:43 <ynpvisitor999®> I second that, 64
09:41:56 <ynpvisitor999®> is there a way to flag a flag?
09:42:05 <Kevin L™> I wonder if that guy was the ump for the Dodger game last night.
09:42:20 <Dave from B™> He needs to look at the correct seismo
09:42:24 <Eric> I added a confirm, hopefully that blocks any flags
09:42:25 <BSK> One ref can wave off another ref's flag. Does that help?
09:43:06 <Dave from B™> That's ridiculous
09:43:33 <ynpvisitor59> clearly erupted
09:43:55 <ynpvisitor21> ear spring is steaming heavily
09:44:00 <Dave from B™> Anyone John Lucas who has 1 total entry, 2 flag del;eted entries?
09:44:11 <ynpvisitor59> can you commnet on a flag?
09:44:14 <Dave from B™> That's not a very good track record
09:44:22 <ynpvisitor59> admin required
09:45:15 <ynpvisitor999®> I added a confirm and YNM seismic trace as attachment, with instructions to find SB's trace
09:45:59 <Dave from B™> Thanks DG
09:46:09 <ynpvisitor21> What does that mean when Israel is now talking about Yellowstone???
09:46:09 <ynpvisitor999®> NG finished a 28-minute extended fill @ 1142
09:46:12 <Dave from B™> flag is gone
09:46:32 <Dave from B™> 21?
09:46:49 <ynpvisitor999®> he left a comment, saying he looked at the wrong seismo
09:46:50 <Eric> Yep, he added a comment apologizing
09:47:06 <Dave from B™> Yep...just saw that...It has happened to a few of us before...easy to do
09:47:11 <Kevin L™> Entrant removed flag saying he was looking at wrong seismo.
09:47:15 <ynpvisitor999®> apologies accepted
09:51:18 <ynpvisitor999®> out of curiousity, when Giantess does finally manage to create a 6-foot boil, does it then immediatly begin or stay 'quiet' like Great Fountain sometimes does?
10:01:50 <ynpvisitor51> if it is on the way to an eruption, it keeps boiling
10:02:51 <Dave from B™> DG, how long can the SB seismo trace last
10:03:19 <ynpvisitor51> several minutes of heavy boiling turns into bursting, bursting into bursts with pauses, then steam phase
10:04:17 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks, 51
10:06:06 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't have the exact numbers Dave, but the max I've seen (or at least, can recall) it above background noise is about 1h30m-1h45m
10:07:09 <ynpvisitor51> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WJqrP7pt94
10:07:18 <ynpvisitor999®> shortest was about 15-25m, which was the August 27 eruption
10:07:35 <ynpvisitor51> I don't know if that is the best video available but it came up in the search
10:09:00 <Betty> hi guys
10:09:06 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
10:09:09 <ynpvisitor64> I saw Giantess in 2005. We were able to make it from F&M to Geyser Hill before the bursting started.
10:09:15 <Betty> evening DG
10:14:07 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks 51
10:14:48 <Dave from B™> 64, that is quite a bit of warning. That is a long walk
10:17:15 <Betty> today we sure get Giant. F&M and Steamboat already went :-)
10:20:56 <Dave from B™> Yep...It is BIGGIE MONDAY
10:21:37 <Betty> Hah! I tike the way you think, Dave :-D
10:21:59 <ynpvisitor999®> it's surprising mondays can, too, be exciting
10:22:03 <ynpvisitor64> We moved quickly, but the gazers there didn't seem like that delay was odd. (I was very ignorant of what was happening.) Anyone here have better information about the delay between when an eruption is apparent and bursting starts for Giantess?
10:27:22 <ynpvisitor69> 23 22 17 9
10:27:35 <Kevin L™> Been a LONG time since I saw one in person. I do remember getting from the Lower Hams Store before it went.
10:27:47 <Kevin L™> I was faster then.
10:28:58 <Betty> OF
10:30:07 <Betty> Grotto?
10:30:19 <ynpvisitor999®> possibly
10:30:52 <BSK> Or steam from Castle?
10:33:42 <Betty> everyone looks cold
10:34:33 <ynpvisitor59> its Grotto. been 3.5 hrs
10:34:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
10:35:35 <Kevin L™> Would you believe it got down to 55° here last night Betty?
10:36:10 <Betty> ouch! Can you handle that?
10:36:39 <Kevin L™> My wife left the window open all night. :P
10:36:40 <Dave from B™> You must have had ther furnaceon all night, Kevin!
10:36:51 <Dave from B™> :D
10:37:15 <Betty> :-D
10:37:22 <Kevin L™> Too cold for me.
10:37:34 <Betty> lol
10:38:09 <Dave from B™> Sprinklers get blown out on Friday.....a sign that winter is coming. No more water feature until April
10:38:38 <Kevin L™> I had a sheet, blanket, bedspread, doubled over quilt, and a wool blanket and I was still cold.
10:38:52 <ynpvisitor999®> I bet sprinklers would make a nice ice tower
10:39:18 <BSK> I had to scrape my windshield this morning and our camper isn't winterized and sprinklers aren't blown out. Both have been on the agenda for weeks. Neither done.
10:39:22 <Dave from B™> DG, I'll try it if you want to pay for the repairs:)
10:39:38 <Dave from B™> BSK, you live in the north as well?
10:39:58 <ynpvisitor999®> ehmm... I'll pass on the latter, Dave :D
10:39:59 <BSK> In Montana's "banana belt" (Missoula area)
10:40:05 <Kevin L™> Strange, the Knights are playing in the day today.
10:40:09 <Dave from B™> nice...my college town
10:40:19 <Dave from B™> GO GRIZ
10:40:30 <Dave from B™> They stunk it up yesterday
10:40:30 <BSK> Fight on!
10:40:57 <BSK> Yes, they forget to show up on Saturday. PSU did show up.
10:41:09 <Dave from B™> I love Missoula
10:41:41 <BSK> I expected to hate it when I moved here in '93. Came to love it quickly.
10:43:23 <Dave from B™> How often do you make it to YNP being so close?
10:43:59 <BSK> I usually average once per month, but this last year I have been way off my pace.
10:44:30 <Betty> once per month...sigh
10:44:55 <Dave from B™> That's great. I'm from Billings...been 4 times this year
10:45:15 <Dave from B™> sorry, Betty. We would be happy for you to move here and become a US citizen!
10:45:33 <Dave from B™> BSK, have you seen Steamobat yet?
10:45:37 <Betty> :-)
10:46:09 <Kevin L™> As long as you bring pretzels.
10:46:21 <Betty> hahaha
10:49:14 <BSK> Yes, I was at the May 27 Steamboat eruption.
10:49:28 <Betty> was that a bird?
10:49:30 <Dave from B™> nice, the first one caught by gazers
10:49:31 <Eric> Hey, me too :-D
10:49:38 <Betty> looked strange
10:51:25 <Dave from B™> You don't have birds in Europe?:)
10:51:49 <Betty> no birds here
10:52:14 <ynpvisitor999®> I have a budgie next to me, if that counts :)
10:52:16 <Betty> it looked like a model plane
10:52:49 <Kevin L™> There are a bunch of quail in my front yard.
10:53:39 <Betty> you have quail and chicken??
10:54:38 <Kevin L™> The quail hang around the general area. I usually make a place for them where they can nest without cats getting them.
10:54:49 <Dave from B™> And, I have those crazy squawking birds who act like their injured when you come close to their nest...I'm drawing a blank right now...they are at Norris as well
10:55:03 <BSK> Killdeer?
10:55:18 <Betty> Killdeer are fun
10:55:20 <Dave from B™> THANK YOU!
10:55:26 <Dave from B™> That was driving me nuts
10:55:43 <Dave from B™> They are good actors
10:56:14 <BSK> They fake injuries more convincingly than soccer players. :)
10:56:23 <Betty> lol
10:56:37 <Dave from B™> hahaha...is that even possible?:D
10:57:33 <ynpvisitor999®> hmmm... I think something went wrong here: http://geysertimes.org/eruption.php?id=1059125 (hint: look at the primary entry)
10:58:19 <Dave from B™> Graham's comment belongs on Morning
10:58:47 <Betty> That was Maureens post on Morning Yesterday
10:59:53 <Dave from B™> is it corrected now?
11:00:09 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it's fixed now - initially it was F&M 0000 A as secondary on that Morning entry
11:10:25 <BSK> NG
11:11:19 <Kevin L™> Looked like Ear Spring was excited too.
11:13:30 <Dave from B™> It looks like Tara has joined Micah on the hill
11:15:45 <ynpvisitor69> Emily's atachment on 17 Sept Steamboat is from August, wrong image https://m.imgur.com/E6ivkAP
11:16:38 <Kevin L™> They may be doing a last minute run before they leave. :(
11:20:30 <ynpvisitor96> is this a different camera
11:20:50 <Betty> no
11:20:50 <Kevin L™> No
11:20:51 <BSK> Nope. Same camera
11:21:30 <ynpvisitor96> it looks sharper cleaner
11:21:50 <Kevin L™> VEC staff scrubbed it
11:22:01 <ynpvisitor96> lol thats why
11:22:32 <Dave from B™> Stick around a few minutes...Of will slime it
11:22:34 <Jeff in CT> Crispy air
11:22:46 <Jeff in CT> Same old dome
11:26:14 <Betty> LC
11:29:05 <ynpvisitor59> is Grotto still erupting
11:30:16 <ynpvisitor59> thanks. possily
11:38:58 <Dave from B™> Time to play hookie....it's almost game time. Have a great evening everyone!
11:39:20 <BSK> Have a good one, Dave.
11:39:58 <Dave from B™> Enjoy the afternoon Giant cloud
11:39:59 <Kevin L™> The hockey game is on AT&T Dave.
11:41:30 <Betty> bye Dave
11:42:06 <Betty> GHP at 1313
11:46:06 <ynpvisitor999®> so I missed another NG?
11:46:19 <BSK> Did Dave take the light with him?
11:46:54 <BSK> 999, there was a NG at 13:10
11:47:23 <ynpvisitor999®> I was referring to that one
11:47:43 <BSK> If there was one after that, I missed it.
11:48:05 <ynpvisitor59> 1313 not posted
11:48:09 <ynpvisitor59> 1310
11:48:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Suzanne uploaded her SB entry
11:48:53 <ynpvisitor59> now it is
11:49:14 <ynpvisitor51> Aurum ?
11:49:29 <ynpvisitor999®> good question, 51
11:50:03 <ynpvisitor51> too much steam from everything to tell
11:56:05 <Betty> LC
11:56:09 <ynpvisitor89> DG NG was 13:10:15 to 13:10:28
11:56:24 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks, will add that
11:56:44 <ynpvisitor89> yw
11:58:04 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... I see I missed the 1200 intermediate. Bummer
11:59:08 <ynpvisitor999®> though I guess there wasn't much to see either because of that sput at the foreground
12:07:17 <ynpvisitor999®> OF
12:07:43 <ynpvisitor999®> curtain
12:26:41 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Enjoy SC, Geyser Hill and what seems to be Riverside
12:27:09 <BSK> Have a good one, 999.
12:27:15 <ynpvisitor89> Riverside
12:27:19 <Kevin L™> Keep your shinny side up and your greasy side down.
12:27:22 <BSK> There it goes.
12:43:01 <Jeff in CT> What is the feature dead center, just above the little tree second from left of center?
12:44:40 <Betty> Sprinkler?
12:44:59 <ynpvisitor89> tera cotta?
12:46:15 <Jeff in CT> I thought it might be Spanker
12:49:08 <ynpvisitor89> If you are talking about the little tree to the left of the big tree that points to Daisy yes that is sprinkler
12:51:44 <Jeff in CT> Thanks, Sprinkler it is. Hard to correlate map with WC view, due to image compression when using extreme telephoto
12:52:24 <ynpvisitor89> Sprinkler now
12:53:07 <ynpvisitor89> almost like it was qued up
12:53:23 <Jeff in CT> So it was Sprinkler that I saw at 16:38 yesterday, possibly a minor eruption - definitely had water at least 2-3 feet
12:53:25 <Craig Laptop™> it heard you
12:54:03 <ynpvisitor2> Jeff where in CT are you
12:54:38 <ynpvisitor89> we see sprinkler every ~30 min
12:56:29 <Jeff in CT> Close to New Haven
12:59:01 <ynpvisitor89> Daisy
12:59:40 <ynpvisitor89> I call the big terr my Daisy tree
12:59:46 <ynpvisitor89> tree
13:00:21 <Betty> it is mine too :-)
13:00:37 <ynpvisitor89> :)
13:00:47 <Jeff in CT> So now I've got a Sprinkler tree :lol:
13:00:56 <ynpvisitor89> yep
13:04:46 <ynpvisitor98> I think it will become the BH tree in the new cam.
13:05:13 <ynpvisitor98> The Daisy tree that is
13:05:37 <Craig Laptop™> Whats this about a new camera?
13:06:04 <ynpvisitor98> Someone wnat to take that one?
13:06:36 <ynpvisitor89> the new view will be quite different if the new cam happens.
13:06:58 <Craig Laptop™> are they replacing this one or just adding a new one?
13:07:25 <ynpvisitor98> That was more criptic then my explanation.
13:08:21 <ynpvisitor98> The plan is suposedly sometime to put a new cam on top of the Inn under the American Flag, this cam gets cut.
13:08:39 <Craig Laptop™> hmm
13:08:56 <Craig Laptop™> as long as it has good zoom i guess it doesn't matter that much
13:08:59 <ynpvisitor89> there are rumors of a new cam on top of OF Inn, because of bandwidth probably replacing according to rumors.
13:10:04 <ynpvisitor34> New cam will use the T1 line this cam has.
13:10:19 <ynpvisitor98> Who started the rumor anyway?
13:12:07 <ynpvisitor34> Probably a person who saw them installing the new cam on the in.
13:12:37 <ynpvisitor89> unknown, but it was mentioned a while back when they thought this dome could not be cleaned'
13:14:33 <ynpvisitor98> Well enjoy the sun.
13:14:41 <ynpvisitor89> If anyone knows Micah or Tara they could ask them to take a picture of the handrail just below the American flag before they leave and post it
13:14:45 <Eric> Replacing the dome on this webcam would be relatively easy and cheap.
13:15:08 <Eric> I asked Graham to grab a picture if he could, not sure if he did or not.
13:15:21 <ynpvisitor89> yes that is alll that is needed imho
13:19:10 <Betty> time to head out. Go Giant!
13:19:25 <Kevin L™> Good Knight Betty
13:19:30 <ynpvisitor89> bye Betty
13:20:17 <ynpvisitor34> I don’t think the Inn sways like the tree.
13:20:39 <ynpvisitor89> I would hope not!
13:22:02 <ynpvisitor34> I doubt the Inn may fall over in a windstorm either.
13:22:37 <Kevin L™> If the tree fell over now we would be without a cam for a long time.
13:24:36 <Eric> A 75ft tall pole where the pool use to be with a 360 degree webcam :-D
13:24:40 <Jeff in CT> I cam on top of the Inn is going to need about a 180 degree view to see what we see now, but may have a cleaner view of Castle and Grand
13:24:46 <ynpvisitor89> From what I have seen of videos of the lowering of the flags on top of the Inn, we should have a very good view of geyser Hill, and when the camera is pointed down basin a good view also, but we will not have both
13:25:07 <Jeff in CT> Depending on exact placement and how wide the lens
13:25:48 <Eric> A cleaner view of Geyser Hill too, worse view of OF....generally OF windows will SUCK!
13:26:20 <Eric> We won't see much other than OF, no watching grand, lion, daisy or castle if OF is in window.
13:26:38 <Eric> Which is about 20 percent of the time.
13:27:11 <Kevin L™> Looks like kc will be happy tonight.
13:27:22 <Jeff in CT> Camera should be more off of the ground, but not high enough to see Steamboat :-/
13:27:31 <Kevin L™> :)
13:29:01 <ynpvisitor89> The end result of a camera move may end up being very disappointing
13:29:07 <Jeff in CT> I am estimating that the current view is about 100 degrees
13:29:18 <Kevin L™> Be funny to see a Mugwump with a wc time.
13:29:35 <ynpvisitor89> :)
13:29:35 <Eric> wrong end of the inn :-(
13:29:52 <Eric> If they had mounted it on the other end, that would have been possible
13:30:07 <Eric> or at least I don't think it's possible :-P
13:30:58 <Jeff in CT> More/less equivalent to 16 mm focal length? Anyone have specs on the current webcam, would give us an idea what to expect
13:33:58 <Eric> ohh, maybe you will be able to: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Old+Faithful/@44.459861,-110.8307887,30a,35y,262.08h,77.82t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x5351ed1b81592e5f:0x83b7c275a6822a1!8m2!3d44.4604788!4d-110.8281376
13:35:03 <Eric> I love the new 3d rendering stuff in google web maps, almost better than google earth.
13:36:01 <ynpvisitor89> overview of current camera https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/895658-REG/Canon_6812B002_VB_H41_Full_HD.html
13:36:51 <Kevin L™> Think the new cam is also a Canon VB-H41
13:37:07 <Jeff in CT> Thanks, I am surprised at the 'only 60°' viewing angle
13:38:51 <GO MORNING> i see tat GO SOMETHING worked pretty well
13:39:12 <GO MORNING> maybe i should go with GIANT instead?
13:39:59 <Jeff in CT> How about Sprinkler? ;)
13:40:09 <GO MORNING> Eric - i did check the views and with the same wide angle camera, you get OF and maybe to Plume, Geyser Hill, or downbasin
13:40:11 <Jeff in CT> Then you won't be disappointed
13:40:30 <Kevin L™> kc is happy Graham. We had another bad Knight.
13:40:42 <Eric> Hi Graham, did you get a picture of the new camera mount?
13:40:49 <GO MORNING> hardto be dissapointed this year ... unless your name is Dave
13:41:00 <Eric> OF
13:41:22 <GO MORNING> i didnt take a lic of the mount, but you can see it on the corner of the roof
13:41:47 <GO MORNING> or a pic
13:41:51 <Eric> nice view on lake static
13:42:15 <GO MORNING> glad Tara and Micah got a pretty NG intermediate
13:42:50 <GO MORNING> i wonder how long Suzanne and Heinrick are there, through SL closing?
13:43:04 <Kevin L™> I would like a setup like the Virtual Rails Barstow cam. The main cam is movable and the have a second one in a fixed position. (Access the 2nd by the "suitcase" icon with the arrows.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKkvaRRuBmE
13:43:16 <GO MORNING> good decision to go to Norris today for them
13:44:02 <GO MORNING> i did checkout the Lodge and right over the main walkway from OF gives a pretty good view similar to what we have
13:44:39 <Jeff in CT> Having a very wide angle fixed webcam would be a great addition
13:45:02 <Jeff in CT> Virtual Railfanning- a great way to kill 6 or 10 hours
13:45:32 <Kevin L™> We used to use the fixed static cam to help up out. I sure miss it.
13:46:03 <Kevin L™> I do like VR except they hire Nazis for chat moderators.
13:56:30 <ynpvisitor89> Sprinkler
13:56:32 <Kevin L™> Switching the steamer at Chama right now Jeff. http://www.coloradonewmexicosteamtrain.org/camera-portal-horizontal.htm
13:58:48 <Jeff in CT> Thanks - yet another reason not to get some work done before quitting time :D
13:59:54 <Kevin L™> :) The main train comes in just after 1600 MDT. They leave right at 1000 MDT in the mornings. My Grandson love to watch it.
14:01:17 <Kevin L™> Dan Markoff will be bringing his Eureka #4 to the museum here for 3 weeks. Always look forward to that.
14:06:13 <Kevin L™> Grand!
14:07:37 <GO MORNING> were the Knights still napping during the game today?
14:09:26 <Kevin L™> I think they have been napping all season. If Fluery is off his game, he is horrible. I think about 75% of the goals scored are his misses. They even pulld him halfway through the opener he was so bbad and he was the same today.
14:10:01 <Kevin L™> The bad thing for you though is he usually doe not do two bad days in a row.
14:14:15 <GO MORNING> will see about that...maybe the Sabres will have a run this season ...... have to figure out who the SC competition will be tho
14:15:19 <ynpvisitor89> train is under way
14:15:44 <Jeff in CT> See y'all
14:15:55 <Kevin L™> Later
14:15:57 <ynpvisitor89> Bye Jeff
14:16:36 <Kevin L™> There will be a full passenger train coming in on the north camera shortly.
14:17:19 <ynpvisitor89> tks
14:17:46 <Kevin L™> The whistle when it is behind the trees is great.
14:31:29 <ynpvisitor89> here it is, the train
14:32:19 <Kevin L™> I usually go from north cam to depot cam.
14:33:09 <ynpvisitor89> nice
14:36:29 <Kevin L™> They are fun. They run on track 36" wide instead of the 56 1/2" standard gauge and are a bit smaller than the bigger counterparts.
14:37:12 <ynpvisitor89> tks for the info
14:37:56 <Kevin L™> NP. A fun piece of history.
14:38:31 <Kevin L™> I love the tree color there too.
14:44:06 <ynpvisitor89> I put it in my bookmarks
14:51:00 <Kevin L™> Easier to catch in the mornings. Usually leaves within a couple minutes of 1000 MDT and they have a lot of steam and whistles.
14:52:05 <Kevin L™> This is the railroad's web page: https://cumbrestoltec.com/
15:57:09 <kcmule> sorry KL but you'll get your chance for revenge in about a week
15:58:00 <GO MORNING> i think he wants revenge on Wed
15:58:18 <Kevin L™> i'd say they played like wounded girl scouts, but I don't want to insult wounded Girl Scouts.
15:58:55 <kcmule> we're over .500 for the first time in almost 6 years, so yeah.. due
16:01:07 <Kevin L™> Dodgers are winning in the top of the 9th so I do feel a bit better.
16:03:53 <kcmule> wish I liked baseball more but I didn't play and didn't have a team growing up
16:04:36 <kcmule> always liked stats but it seems like steroids messed up all the records
16:05:27 <EMily> howdy
16:05:32 <EMily> howdy
16:06:05 <kcmule> hola
16:06:06 <Kevin L™> Hi hi
16:06:58 <Emily> I hope dave gets steambiat
16:07:42 <Emily> I hope everybody gets it
16:08:31 <GO MORNING> hi Emily. did you see the Sept 17th seismo is from August attched on GT?
16:08:49 <GO MORNING> kcmule needs another dash to the park too :)
16:08:58 <Emily> say that again?
16:09:42 <Emily> you are correct
16:09:51 <Emily> September 17th has august 27th
16:10:58 <GO MORNING> yep...confused me
16:11:07 <Emily> fixing now
16:11:43 <kcmule> why does norris need another disturbance
16:12:47 <Emily> fixed
16:13:33 <Emily> I have so many imgaes with blue lines and then a larger set of blue lines at the bottom of the image saved in my phone
16:13:37 <GO MORNING> maybe you should go closing weekend
16:13:54 <GO MORNING> thanks Emily
16:13:59 <Emily> go very quietly dressed as an imperial snow trooper
16:14:17 <Emily> camoflague and warmth
16:14:19 <Kevin L™> Put your HK mask on
16:16:04 <Kevin L™> And the Dodgers advance.
16:18:30 <GO MORNING> not easy to see from the seisom on 17th
16:18:44 <Emily> its a weak reading
16:18:56 <Emily> I forgot to get YNR which was stronger
16:19:04 <Emily> Tantulas creek is good though
16:20:42 <GO MORNING> definately wasnt a weak eruption
16:21:26 <Emily> yes weak reading does not imply weak eruption
16:21:34 <Emily> anything but with that boi
16:35:15 <GO MORNING> i wondered if you could see the auses on the 17th but it isnt that clear a signature
16:36:47 <Emily> YNR might be better
16:44:21 <GO MORNING> more boring steamboat pics ... https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10212185048449346&type=1&l=3881d26c3d
17:00:54 <Micah> Finally I get this page to load. Sheeeesh
17:01:05 <ynpvisitor85> lion
17:02:01 <ynpvisitor98> Are you gone Micah ?
17:02:08 <Micah> Nope.
17:02:12 <Micah> Leaving Thursday Morning.
17:02:23 <ynpvisitor98> Oh nice.
17:02:32 <Micah> Dad coming into Jackson Tomorrow. Spending the day here on Wednesday. And then we're heading out.
17:02:42 <Micah> North Goggle was FUN today
17:02:55 <GO MORNING> geysers are erupting, get out there
17:03:08 <Micah> It does that.
17:03:13 <Micah> Too chilly for me.
17:03:48 <ynpvisitor98> Enjoy your final days! Thanks for all the reports.
17:03:49 <Micah> I'm satisfied with my day, although most of it was spent on the hill.
17:03:51 <GO MORNING> NG is over 300 since Sept 15 now
17:04:01 <Micah> Yeah. Spectacular activity.
17:04:08 <Micah> You should see it's platform and runoff channels.
17:04:24 <GO MORNING> 304 logged
17:04:54 <GO MORNING> i know, it was eroding a lot
17:05:26 <GO MORNING> dont you mean "because most of it was spent on the hill?"
17:05:43 <Micah> Also I'm trying to figure out exactly when "Intermediate" came into usage.
17:05:53 <Micah> Might merit an email or two.
17:06:12 <Micah> Because all the records I've been reading through for the past 45 minutes only talk about majors. And that includes eruptions of about 3 minutes.
17:06:44 <GO MORNING> 1994 per TSB
17:07:35 <GO MORNING> they dont seem as good as the Majors, but i am not sure whatpeople have been calling majors
17:07:51 <GO MORNING> certainly not 50 feet and with a steam phase of significance
17:08:41 <Micah> I'm not quite to 2012 yet. But I suspect that many, if not most of the "majors" that have been seen in the 21st century are actually technically intermediates.
17:08:52 <Micah> Ah geyser terminology
17:08:57 <Micah> gotta love it.
17:10:02 <Kevin L™> Subject to change....
17:10:14 <Micah> Yep.
17:10:15 <GO MORNING> ah, ok. Scott also describes the Majrs as retaining height for 4min but the intermediates i saw dropped after 2 and struggled to keep height for 2m ... doing an OF impression

19:55:28 <ynpvisitor89> Micah, before you leave Yellowstone could you take a picture of the top of the inn whwer the american flag is mounted, to see if there is a new camera mounted just below the handrail
19:55:50 <ynpvisitor89> and post it on chat
19:55:57 <Micah> I did notice an unfamiliar structure up there today, I will try to do so.
19:56:32 <ynpvisitor89> Thank you
19:57:27 <Micah> Gotta love that snow hovering just outside the park.
19:57:34 <Micah> And by love I mean despise.
19:58:13 <ynpvisitor89> I hope your stay in Yellowstone has been rewarding.
