03:35:12 <Rice> Lovely Dark Morning
03:45:34 <ynpvisitor89> OF
04:51:38 <ynpvisitor62> Grand ie?
04:52:14 <ynpvisitor62> Looks less so now...
04:52:25 <Dave from B™> not likely....would be a 9 hour interval
04:56:01 <ynpvisitor89> last night was very dark horrible viewing hence very few posts, Possible BH at 0001 but again terrible view.
04:56:55 <ynpvisitor51> Can someone experienced and skilled at picking out nighttime eruptions check out 10/7 to 10/8 overnight (night before last). "the Hiking Dude has added a ns for F&M @0002ns to GT. This is the same person who erroneouly added agiant eruption on 10/4 at 1523. Daisy was seen at 2353 but no overnught Riverside
04:57:48 <ynpvisitor51> sorry 0000ns
04:57:53 <ynpvisitor89> If I post that possible BH we will get an Indy in a few minutes :(
04:58:22 <ynpvisitor89> I'll look
04:59:45 <Dave from B™> Joe, keep in mind, you can post to GT with a ? if you're not sure
05:00:35 <ynpvisitor89> thanks Dave, i'll do that
05:07:05 <Dave from B™> HK has posted on his page (geyser notes) about yesterday's Steamboat. It says observations for Oct 7 but it is for the 8th.
05:16:46 <ynpvisitor89> ynpvisitor51, It is possible that was F&M at that time, Riverside was not due for two hours yet, wind was blowing everything to the left so it probably was not Grotto area geysers.
05:17:44 <ynpvisitor51> Thanks for looking. Possible. Not for sure? right.
05:18:14 <ynpvisitor89> I cannot say it was F&M, but there was a darker area there at that time
05:18:17 <ynpvisitor51> But you see something?
05:18:29 <ynpvisitor89> yes
05:18:51 <ynpvisitor51> I still want to question that persons
05:18:55 <ynpvisitor51> 's
05:20:25 <ynpvisitor51> If the people who have been doint it for years aren't confident in the call I tend to doubt someone who doesnt get it right in the clear light of day
05:30:57 <ynpvisitor89> 51, The steam I saw in that area started about 2356 and ended about 0006, appeared to have strong wind blowing it left, based on Tara's note it probably was F&M but with a start time `2356
05:32:47 <ynpvisitor89> approximately 2356
05:36:25 <Dave from B™> I'd be curious as to how many new members GT has signed up this year with all the Biggies active.
05:36:48 <ynpvisitor51> ynpvisitor89, I appreciate your analysis. Either 0000ns is not correct. Tara's note just says before the frost. Interesting also that your experienced eye only sees 10 min of eruption will the other states 30 min duration
05:38:09 <Bill> Morning
05:38:11 <ynpvisitor51> Hiking Dude signed up in May. has 3 flagged and deleted posts and 2 flagged deleted notes already
05:38:33 <Dave from B™> Morning Bill
05:39:38 <ynpvisitor30> the STS person could also stand to learn more
05:41:11 <Dave from B™> We all were rookies once
05:41:53 <ynpvisitor89> 51, I would not have called it F&M based on the short time that I saw the cloud, F&M was probably later in the night but it was difficult to see anything
05:42:03 <ynpvisitor30> when I was a rookie I didn't post, I figured someone else would. Maybe that's the difference.
05:44:12 <ynpvisitor89> I have made many mistakes posting, and try hard to be rigth, but I am not an "expert"
05:44:27 <ynpvisitor89> Right*
05:45:21 <ynpvisitor30> they may not realize there is this chat room where things are discussed, or that some have capability to play back the cam footage to review eruptions. That's a big one
05:46:34 <Dave from B™> Maybe GT should have a tutorial or FAQ page or something that would help inexperienced members
05:48:03 <Bill> I wouldn't mind that. I signed up a couple weeks back
05:48:13 <Dave from B™> Heinrich is at his post
05:48:43 <Dave from B™> To even send entrants to this page if they have questions might help
05:49:56 <Dave from B™> I know there has been some rumblings from newbies watching BH based on GT prediction. It might be helpful for some to know BH predictions aren't as accurate as others
05:49:59 <ynpvisitor59> http://geysertimes.org/tips.php
05:51:40 <Bill> Thanks, 59
05:52:23 <Bill> Is there a place where things like "long, maj, ie, ew" etc is all defined?
05:52:58 <Bill> *wc not ew
05:53:03 <Bill> it's early
05:53:05 <ynpvisitor89> I learned by spending a lot of time watching and listening to people like DaveM, Kevinl, Dave from B, Graham, KittB, Betty and others, also based on what I saw actually in basin.
05:53:48 <Jeff in CT> Morning all
05:53:51 <ynpvisitor51> ynpvisitor89, Thanks again. I appreciate your caution in calling night eruptions. Especially the down basin stuff
05:53:53 <Bill> Morning
05:54:32 <Jeff in CT> I was expecting that Lion would have gone off by now, but I understand the overnight was very dark
05:54:56 <ynpvisitor89> Yw 51, btw I post as JoeN
05:55:25 <ynpvisitor51> ynpvisitor89, I knew that
05:55:37 <ynpvisitor89> :)
05:55:57 <Dave from B™> Thanks 59
05:56:25 <ynpvisitor51> ynpvisitor89, The night eruptions are tough and I welcome the caution.
05:56:48 <ynpvisitor51> Does F&M have a working logger on it?
05:56:59 <Bill> I think yes
05:57:01 <Eric> Morning
05:57:04 <Bill> Hold on I'll verify
05:57:08 <Bill> Morning, Eric
05:57:10 <Eric> and Bill, the glossary is what you are looking for: http://geysertimes.org/glossary.php
05:57:12 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
05:57:33 <Jeff in CT> Morning Eric
05:58:13 <Bill> Thanks Eric! It'd be nice to have all of that data compiled or at least linked to each other
05:58:31 <Bill> Yes there is a F&M logger. It belongs to Jeff Cross and he'll be grabbing that next week
05:58:43 <Eric> They are linked at the bottom of every GT page :-D
05:58:44 <Bill> It's on a 5m interval
05:59:06 <Bill> touche!
05:59:21 <Eric> both tips and glossary are there :-)
05:59:44 <Dave from B™> http://geysertimes.org/glossary.php
05:59:52 <Eric> They could probably be more in your face about them :-D
06:00:02 <Dave from B™> Eric, you beat me to it as usual
06:00:12 <Eric> I seem to really like smiling today :-D
06:00:24 <ynpvisitor51> Thats great. Jeff can be the arbitor of the eruption time. There's at least 4 other A times this summer
06:00:57 <Bill> Just a heads up as well, I won't be here next week.
06:01:40 <Eric> Hopefully you are getting some R&R Bill.
06:02:20 <Eric> Have we seen a report yet on the seismo data that Jamie pulled from around steamboat this spring?
06:02:26 <Bill> For sure. Heading back to Seattle!
06:02:39 <Bill> Neg
06:02:44 <Eric> Nice...just in time for the cold and wet :-P
06:03:10 <Dave from B™> Eric, don't ask Bill what he's doing this winter.....the list is REAL LONG:)
06:03:13 <Bill> It's about the same here. As long as I can make it over the various passes I'm happy
06:03:32 <Bill> Hah! I gave you the abbreviated list too
06:03:49 <Eric> I have seen his list here in chat, I assume more will pile on as winter hits.
06:04:03 <Eric> If they are like everyone elses lists...
06:04:25 <Dave from B™> Agreed, Eric. My list never shrinks
06:04:43 <Eric> No NPS predictions this morning...VEC closed today?
06:05:02 <Bill> We're having a meeting today about our 1 and 5 year goals, so my list may grow as soon as today
06:05:16 <Eric> Lion?
06:05:20 <Bill> Not that I know of, Eric
06:05:41 <Eric> I think so...
06:06:09 <ynpvisitor89> yep on lion
06:06:45 <Jeff in CT> Only 4 hours past my prediction :-/
06:06:59 <Eric> I assume that is ini too.
06:07:10 <ynpvisitor73> VEC not open until 9 now
06:07:21 <Jeff in CT> Three of last four Lions were within my prediction window, but not this one - unless this is not the initial
06:07:24 <Eric> But maybe too foggy to see until now?
06:07:43 <ynpvisitor73> And predictions take getting the E times
06:07:53 <Bill> ynpvisitor73, interesting. I didn't know that! It's rare that I'm down there before 9 anyway I suppose
06:07:53 <Eric> alright...gotta run and workout. bbl
06:07:54 <Jeff in CT> One issue with Lion prediction is observational bias - if one event is missed, then the prediction becomes useless
06:08:43 <ynpvisitor89> we will see how long it last could not see much earlier
06:09:07 <Jeff in CT> If last nights initial, at 19:00, was followed by several eruptions, or if this is not the initial, then the prediction was accurate
06:09:54 <Jeff in CT> Need to review the instant replay from last night
06:11:12 <ynpvisitor89> stream stumbled last night so my recording stopped, i have to figure how to start it when the stream comes back up
06:13:07 <ynpvisitor89> this must be the ini
06:14:21 <Bill> Be right back
06:17:28 <ynpvisitor11> Not a great viewing morning!
06:22:15 <ynpvisitor11> Morning Linda
06:36:51 <ynpvisitor9> LC ie
06:39:10 <Betty> Morning all
06:39:26 <Jeff in CT> Hi Betty
06:39:41 <ynpvisitor89> Jeff, last night Lions have been posted
06:39:42 <Betty> hi Jeff
06:40:11 <Betty> hi Jimbo and Joe
06:40:17 <Jimbo Magnesium> Hello
06:40:23 <ynpvisitor89> Hi Betty
06:40:44 <Betty> 3 J‘s in a row:-)
06:42:42 <ynpvisitor89> If I could figure how to automatically restart ffmpeg when the rtmp stream drops I would not have to wait for the overnight
06:43:46 <ynpvisitor89> bbl, gtg
06:44:01 <Betty> Bye
07:04:48 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
07:05:34 <Dave from B™> It looks like I will be at Norris for at least Sunday. I may go Saturday afternoon if things progress a little faster this time around. So, the rest of you can go on Monday.
07:10:17 <Jimbo Magnesium> Grand? Hard to tell with white cloud against gray sky
07:11:14 <Dave from B™> Sure seems like Grand
07:23:38 <Jeff in CT> Nince NG?
07:23:56 <Jeff in CT> Nice, not nince
07:25:18 <ynpvisitor> I missed a LC major!
07:28:22 <Jeff in CT> Lion ie
07:40:06 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin
07:49:08 <Kevin L™> Morning
08:52:22 <Jeff in CT> Thanks to JoeN adding last night's Lion events, the current initial, at 8:05, was only 2.3 hrs off of my predictor, well within margin of error of 3.8hr
09:53:40 <BSK> Gray, gray and more gray...
10:45:50 <Eric> BH looks hot
10:48:06 <Eric> and we haven't had a Giant Hot period Yet today...wouldn't be surprised to see Giant erupt within the next 3 hours.
10:52:54 <Jeff in CT> IS that SC?
10:53:16 <BSK> Looks like, Jeff.
10:53:36 <Jeff in CT> GHP at 10:50 today
10:57:26 <Betty> afternoon all
10:57:49 <Betty> I´m here for my BH
11:05:51 <Kevin L™> Turn it on
11:06:42 <Betty> has to wait a second. I´m writing a mail :-)
11:06:47 <Betty> hi Kevin
11:07:43 <Betty> I was searching for the button on the handrail and I can tell you: there is none near Beehive
11:08:36 <Kevin L™> I think it uses a remote
11:10:08 <ynpvisitor82> Anyone watching Ear spring? Sure surging today. Thought I saw surges of 5'-6'
11:10:54 <Betty> I have two static views atm
11:11:13 <ynpvisitor82> and?
11:11:21 <Kevin L™> On the train?
11:11:25 <Betty> bet my computer does updates or so
11:11:51 <Betty> no, at home
11:16:40 <Kevin L™> I hate updates. There is always something updating.
11:17:39 <Betty> my streaming is frozen for at least 5 min
11:19:06 <Kevin L™> And then there is Apple with their updates. "We know how this runs so you should too!"
11:24:42 <ynpvisitor89> I run Linux no updates unless I tell it to, I rarely turn on my windows machine.
11:25:15 <Kevin L™> Linux is looking better all the time.
11:29:14 <ynpvisitor89> There are somethings with Linux that you cannot do, but there alternatives to most things that you do in windows, you can also run a virtual machine ( which I do not) to run windows for the one or two things you cannot do without
11:32:38 <ynpvisitor89> You can find a Linux distribution, Ubuntu, linux mint or others
11:32:49 <ynpvisitor89> daisy
11:33:18 <Kevin L™> Is there a Linux pretzel for Betty?
11:33:46 <ynpvisitor89> and dual boot, find someone local to help you get setup.
11:34:21 <ynpvisitor89> I'll bet there is :)
11:34:47 <Betty> fun
11:35:00 <Betty> hey, it´s moving
11:36:24 <Kevin L™> My brother is a programmer. I bet he could do something with it.
11:38:04 <ynpvisitor89> I would be surprised if he is not very familiar with or uses Linux,
11:38:33 <ynpvisitor89> or does not use8
11:39:14 <ynpvisitor89> Daves keyboard attacks again
11:40:15 <Kevin L™> I know he works with windows but also does Raspberry Pi. He does programmable controllers.
11:44:48 <ynpvisitor89> If he does r-pi he is more than familiar with Linux distributions.
11:46:39 <Kevin L™> The airplane radar I host is done on a Raspberry Pi
11:47:58 <ynpvisitor89> I wish i new a bit about programming, i have to depend on others for help when it comes to finding problems with small programs
11:49:36 <ynpvisitor89> neat, on the airplane radar hosting
11:49:56 <Kevin L™> Can hardly see OF
11:50:29 <Kevin L™> Amazing what those can do for as tiny as they are.
11:55:14 <Betty> Kevin, did you see they moved the static cam? Aurum is not in view anymore :-(
11:55:48 <Kevin L™> I hadn't
11:56:33 <ynpvisitor97> looks the same to me, I guess I do not watch it often
11:57:13 <ynpvisitor...> Shifted right some I think
11:57:48 <ynpvisitor97> that's an odd shift
11:58:11 <ynpvisitor97> I wonder if that was intentional
11:58:22 <ynpvisitor89> I wonder if they would move back if we called and asked?
11:58:39 <ynpvisitor97> they might. It might have moved in cleaning...
11:59:08 <ynpvisitor...> More interested in framing than sputs perhaps?
11:59:26 <Kevin L™> I think 97 is right. I know they pay attention to comments on social media.
11:59:45 <ynpvisitor97> not the greatest frame for OF the way it is now either
12:00:03 <Betty> Riverside
12:00:17 <ynpvisitor...> Should we ask for Beehive back :)
12:00:27 <Betty> yeah!!!
12:00:38 <Betty> that was a great view
12:00:49 <ynpvisitor97> someone would have to guide them through the placement
12:01:11 <Kevin L™> They tried that but got too many comments about OF being almost out of the picture.
12:01:12 <ynpvisitor...> It did come in handy
12:02:13 <ynpvisitor...> I was just being a pain. Sorry.
12:03:00 <Kent> Didn't mean to hide.
12:03:11 <ynpvisitor89> it was moved the morning of Oct 4th a cording to the archive
12:03:17 <ynpvisitor89> riverside
12:03:32 <Betty> I knew who you were
12:04:25 <ynpvisitor89> Betty already got Rside, sorry
12:04:46 <Kent> 2 is better than 0
12:06:53 <ynpvisitor89> it was moved at about 0745 Oct 4th looks like they centered it on OF
12:07:28 <Kevin L™> Does the picture look cleaner?
12:10:37 <ynpvisitor97> good question
12:10:57 <ynpvisitor97> and centering on OF is not the best view
12:12:35 <ynpvisitor89> can't tell that but the moves they made looked like they centered OF then raised the angle to give a full view of the height of eruption
12:14:16 <Kent> Yellowstone needs an advisory group consisting of me and ……… Well Maybe just me :)
12:14:32 <Kevin L™> :)
12:15:04 <ynpvisitor89> not cleaning but purposely moved imho
12:18:30 <Jeff in CT> Beehive fan club is starting to gather!
12:23:38 <ynpvisitor97> they have so much wasted space on the static now. Who needs to see all that sand and sidewalk?
12:30:11 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I think my truck needs another tannerite video...it's "resting" in Bozeman right now
12:30:38 <Betty> ouch
12:31:26 <Dave from B™> It has been good all year
12:41:43 <Jimbo Magnesium> Yay, Depression bursts
12:42:18 <Betty> yay
12:56:18 <ynpvisitor78> I thought you were truck shopping after the new drain field went in.
12:57:24 <ynpvisitor78> My guess is BH in 3 hours.
12:58:18 <Kevin L™> I have a 20# box Dave.
13:01:09 <Kevin L™> I think 20# would work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmRamov7hA0
13:02:32 <Kevin L™> Watch this before you set it off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKqXu-5jw60
13:03:46 <Jeff in CT> Duck and cover, I remember these drills back in the 1960's
13:04:25 <Kevin L™> Those were the days Jeff!
13:07:48 <Jimbo Magnesium> Grand !
13:07:52 <ynpvisitor89> Grand
13:07:52 <Jimbo Magnesium> For sure this time
13:12:01 <ynpvisitor97> poof and more poofs
13:15:13 <Jimbo Magnesium> time check
13:16:03 <ynpvisitor89> 10 min
13:16:42 <ynpvisitor89> @nd
13:16:56 <ynpvisitor89> not
13:17:04 <ynpvisitor89> 2nd
13:17:05 <Kevin L™> yes
13:17:15 <Jimbo Magnesium> Goody ... waiting
13:17:18 <ynpvisitor97> nice to see one
13:17:23 <Kevin L™> It was kind to us
13:17:24 <Betty> fun
13:17:38 <Jeff in CT> Wow, duck and cover
13:17:50 <Jimbo Magnesium> Good, always like how a 2nd burst builds
13:17:59 <ynpvisitor78> SO am I seeing a delayed 2nd, or third
13:18:09 <Jimbo Magnesium> I just saw the 2nd on lag
13:18:34 <ynpvisitor89> lag is nice
13:20:00 <ynpvisitor97> sometimes lag is helpful
13:21:57 <ynpvisitor78> Kevin, nascar just keeps bleeding
13:22:24 <Jeff in CT> I thought I saw Indy, hard to say though
13:22:36 <ynpvisitor78> nope
13:26:18 <ynpvisitor78> of had a second
13:29:33 <ynpvisitor78> What happened to the monkey that tried to blow up Bert?
13:30:38 <Dave from B™> 78, new security system to keep product from walking out the back door is now the top priority
13:30:56 <ynpvisitor97> Joe should add a 2 to Grand post
13:31:19 <Kevin L™> He is still in Gitmo
13:31:54 <ynpvisitor78> Uniforms, make them change on site, or strip searches?
13:33:06 <ynpvisitor78> Been going on fo years. Heard the story from an aunt where people would wrap hams in garbage bags and raid the dumpster after work. That was many many years ago.
13:33:16 <ynpvisitor89> 97 i did but the primary is in basin
13:35:07 <ynpvisitor78> It would help to put a lath on the lobster tank so they can not escape. Or is the product not walking out under it's own power?
13:35:48 <Eric> I have always heard that most retail loss is from employees.
13:36:03 <Kevin L™> .
13:36:03 <Kevin L™> .
13:36:04 <Kevin L™> .
13:36:20 <ynpvisitor78> Not yet, we still have a few hours
13:37:36 <Jimbo Magnesium> Good timing for my schedule
13:38:08 <Betty> I almost decided to head out. Thx
13:38:09 <ynpvisitor97> thanks Joe, not sure the in basin will post it, so good to have it on record
13:38:16 <ynpvisitor78> You are prohibited from going out in the rain.
13:38:30 <Kevin L™> You did that once Betty.
13:38:32 <Dave from B™> Losses are theft in my wholesale division where 1 case can be over $500
13:38:45 <Kevin L™> OUCH!!!!!!
13:39:11 <ynpvisitor78> Buy smaller lobsters so they can not carry as much when they escape.
13:39:32 <Dave from B™> Since technology has improved and cameras for freezers are less expensive, cameras are going up all over the freezer in a month or so
13:39:41 <Jeff in CT> This is probably the issue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebsvoRqPOMk
13:40:08 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
13:40:51 <Jimbo Magnesium> Eruption in there somewhere
13:41:03 <Kevin L™> It was hard to see it
13:41:04 <Eric> boom
13:41:11 <Jeff in CT> Beehive, "I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille"
13:41:11 <Eric> nice steam cloud :-D
13:41:24 <ynpvisitor78> Kevin can not call any more indy's. His are too short.
13:41:45 <ynpvisitor97> for once I'm not on delay
13:43:21 <Betty> still a tall indy
13:44:00 <Betty> over for indy
13:45:08 <Jeff in CT> BH never fails to impress
13:46:52 <ynpvisitor111> Dave you could get one of these. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFqr3_frh3Q
13:47:45 <GO GIANT> isnt it time for Giant?
13:47:51 <Eric> That commercial was for my local chevy dealership :-D
13:48:00 <Betty> it sure is
13:48:53 <Betty> Kevin saved it for your shift
13:48:58 <ynpvisitor97> maybe Giant is waiting for Micah and his dad
13:49:40 <Betty> I call it a nice day. night all
13:49:55 <ynpvisitor111> Me too, enjoy the LC majors
13:49:58 <Jeff in CT> I need a Trunk Monkey, but I don't approve of his reading material
13:50:06 <Jeff in CT> Night Betty
13:58:37 <Dave from B™> It HAS to be time for a really good GHP
14:05:37 <GO GIANT> if one hasnt been missed
14:06:04 <GO GIANT> none reported with the 1353 Grotto
14:06:20 <Kevin L™> HK was out there this morning but I don't know if he left yet.
14:06:55 <Dave from B™> Hopefully Grotto is still going
14:08:35 <Jeff in CT> fwiw, the Lion window is open, prediction is 18:41 +/- 3ish hours
14:09:07 <Jeff in CT> Maybe on-line later, otherwise, later 'gators
14:10:15 <Dave from B™> "see ya in awhile..."
14:14:15 <GO GIANT> a few Giant pics from 17 Sep https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10212190698670598&type=1&l=2ba15da757
14:15:26 <Dave from B™> Graham, is this year best gazing year ever?
14:17:34 <GO GIANT> yes it is Dave for sure ... hope you get a trip back...Sun/Mon maybe?
14:17:58 <GO GIANT> i have never had a year when Giant, Morning, or Steamboat intersected before
14:18:52 <GO GIANT> didnt get great Morning pics ... first was nearly dark while second had Clepsydra interfering so I watched it without photos
14:20:03 <Dave from B™> Your 2018 total? 2 Giant, 2 SB, 2 Morning, ? F&M?
14:20:33 <Dave from B™> I can't be gone on monday due to otehr vacations, so Sat/Sun or just Sun
14:25:49 <GO GIANT> 1 Giant, 2.5 SB, 2 Morning, 1.5 F&M
14:26:40 <GO GIANT> for the trip it was 1 1.5 2 0.5
14:29:31 <Dave from B™> nice....7 biggies in 3 weeks of gazing this year?
14:29:50 <Kevin L™> No Aurums?
14:31:01 <GO GIANT> i saw a few from a distance
14:31:20 <GO GIANT> one in winter up close but not much more
14:31:27 <GO GIANT> i missed the 2-3h intervals
14:32:02 <GO GIANT> 1501 hot period
14:33:18 <GO GIANT> had a restart so must have been big
14:33:45 <Dave from B™> Is it true that no Giants this year have come from restarts?
14:36:14 <GO GIANT> thats true. SO while its interesting to know it restarts, its not that interesting. Not many happened on restarts in the 200x years either.
14:39:14 <GO GIANT> i saw one on a restart, that was after the long series of hourly hot periods and Mastiff depth charging all the time
14:49:02 <GO GIANT> so Giant after dark?
14:55:01 <Dave from B™> Longest Gaint interval since May
14:55:40 <Kevin L™> So Graham broke it?
14:56:34 <GO GIANT> I wanted a short interval
14:56:43 <Kevin L™> Kill the wabbit....
14:56:58 <GO GIANT> at least i didnt break SB ... its still calling your name Dave
14:58:29 <Dave from B™> Graham, I hear it daily
14:58:41 <GO GIANT> looks like Maureen had a really good GF today
14:59:11 <GO GIANT> Sunday might be a bit early, but you never know
15:00:58 <Dave from B™> It's due to shorten again
15:01:36 <GO GIANT> grotto?
15:01:59 <GO GIANT> I am sure you are packed already
15:02:30 <Kevin L™> I was wondering. No spikes.
15:03:14 <Dave from B™> Not packed yet
15:04:06 <GO GIANT> you need your freezer wer this time
15:04:29 <Kevin L™> Did you order the electric jacket?
15:06:10 <Dave from B™> I hope I can move around with 7 layers on?:D
15:06:30 <Dave from B™> I need to ride my bike up the 2 hills to protect my car
15:07:23 <GO GIANT> you cn buy a bottle of slime to try and convince people you saw it by looking at your car
15:10:20 <Dave from B™> Good idea, Graham but I would know it's a lie!
15:16:35 <GO GIANT> we are all rooting for you Dave
15:20:40 <Dave from B™> What other gazers who have ventured to Norris this year are still looking for their first?
15:22:18 <GO GIANT> Pat Hoppe, Pat Snyder,
15:22:22 <Dave from B™> If I miss it this weekend, I'm going to start a No Steamboat support group
15:22:31 <GO GIANT> Warren didnt get the start
15:23:16 <GO GIANT> i am sure there are others. I know Lotus and Keith didnt see it, not sure if they tried tho
15:26:28 <Dave from B™> Did Lee W catch one yet?
15:29:41 <ynpvisitor30> Think we will get a report when Cistern fills up?
15:30:25 <GO GIANT> not sure Dave, he was watching when i left
15:30:26 <Dave from B™> I hope so. I would like to see a speedy fill this time
15:31:04 <GO GIANT> Betty didnt see it
15:31:35 <GO GIANT> she was unlucky with the big geysers
15:31:47 <GO GIANT> kcmule didnt see it
15:32:07 <GO GIANT> Kristine, Louise
15:32:35 <GO GIANT> you are in good company
15:33:00 <ynpvisitor30> Steve E might not - not sure
15:35:29 <Dave from B™> I hope this active phase continues so most gazers get a chance to see it....anyone to double digits on SB yet?
15:38:55 <Dave from B™> Time to help Taylor close the market. Have a great evening everyone!
15:39:12 <Kevin L™> Knight
15:39:37 <GO GIANT> Carol and Bill pronbably are in double digits
15:39:45 <GO GIANT> Udo maybe too
15:39:52 <Dave from B™> That would make sense
15:40:08 <GO GIANT> GO DAVE
16:23:56 <Kevin L™> Are we looking at rain or white crap?
16:24:41 <Kevin L™> :P
16:24:59 <Kevin L™> :snow::thumbsdown::thumbsdown:
16:27:14 <ynpvisitor75> Most of the static webcams are showing cloudy, no precipitation, maybe this is just a squall
16:33:44 <Kevin L™> A squall major!
16:52:14 <LindaG> Wow, snow!
16:52:38 <Kevin L™> :P
16:52:50 <Kevin L™> Causes cancer
16:56:41 <LindaG> 🙄
16:57:26 <Kevin L™> Think Summer is over
16:58:00 <LindaG> Sure looks like it, it's not where I am, wish it were
17:14:31 <ynpvisitor75> The 18:49 non-geyser event is wrong, we have seen snow on/off for the past week at least
17:15:10 <ynpvisitor75> Hopefully didn't miss a Lion during the squall
17:16:14 <Kevin L™> Steamy now
17:19:57 <Kevin L™> Lion looks ie now
17:21:01 <ynpvisitor75> Right on schedule (almost), I predicted it at 18:41, assuming this is the initial
17:21:38 <Kevin L™> Too dark to zoom it
17:35:54 <ynpvisitor73> Someone posted first snow of the season, I think that was a few days ago Hiking Dude.
19:37:43 <kcmule> OF ie
19:48:28 <ynpvisitor75> Someone please post the 19:19 Lion initial as ie, I am not registered to add events, thanks
19:54:53 <ynpvisitor75> Thanks
19:56:15 <ynpvisitor89> yw
19:57:51 <ynpvisitor89> the event non geyser related s not the first snow of the season, the dome was covered with snow and ice a few days ago
20:12:29 <Micah> First big snow.
20:12:36 <Micah> Last snow melted off fast.
20:12:46 <Micah> Tonight's the start of the snopacalypse.
20:13:39 <ynpvisitor89> Hi Micah, good trip to Jackson?
20:14:09 <Micah> Yes.
20:14:29 <ynpvisitor89> Great!
20:14:29 <Micah> It was actually more gnarly going over Craig's Pass this morning than coming back this evening
20:14:41 <Micah> It's quiet right now, and we can see stars, but it's just the calm before the storm.
20:14:46 <Micah> :snow::snow::snow:
20:15:01 <Micah> I figure we'll wake up to a winter wonderland.
20:16:05 <Kevin L™> :P
20:16:18 <Kevin L™> I wish you the best for Giant
20:16:27 <ynpvisitor89> weather radar does not look good, don't think there will be much to see tonight
20:16:37 <Micah> Thanks. I'd be very VERY happy if my dad saw Giant tomorrow.
20:16:49 <Micah> *looks at Weather radar* oh god.
20:16:55 <Kevin L™> My Daughter is not happy.
20:18:12 <Kevin L™> It was even cold here. Got down to 53°.
20:20:45 <Micah> Sounds like shorts and t-shirt weather to me.
20:20:50 <Micah> Break out the sunblock
20:21:32 <Kevin L™> Coat weather here.
20:22:08 <Micah> Looking at the new weather forecast.
20:22:15 <Micah> Looks like the main snow is going to hit tomorrow after noon.
20:22:21 <ynpvisitor89> the cam in OF preset made grand easy to spot tonight, although we will miss Castle later
20:22:52 <Kevin L™> I can fix that.
20:23:03 <ynpvisitor89> good
20:23:06 <Micah> Moose Falls was absolutely raging today.
20:24:29 <Kevin L™> Fixed
20:24:34 <ynpvisitor89> tks
20:31:34 <ynpvisitor6> Looks like OF area may miss this storm
20:31:50 <ynpvisitor6> Small accumulation perhaps
20:35:18 <Micah> that's what they're calling for tonight, but then tomorrow after 12pm it's supposed to slam us.
20:35:24 <Micah> https://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=44.46025037930626&lon=-110.82780773198465
20:35:51 <Kevin L™> May not make 80° here tomorrow.
20:36:16 <ynpvisitor89> :p
20:38:12 <ynpvisitor89> Should be good for your trip out thursday (fingers crossed)
20:38:38 <Kevin L™> Bed time. Good Knight.
20:38:45 <Micah> Night Kevin.
20:38:51 <Micah> And yes I'm hoping so 89
20:38:59 <ynpvisitor89> Knight Kevin
20:42:49 <ynpvisitor89> I'll look at my capture in a couple of hours, now for some shut eye, take care Micah
