04:43:49 <ynpvisitor18> Russia earthquake? Maybe, Or it created a earthquake there too. Here are three links that shows several earthquakes. http://mbmgquake-eidsserver.mtech.edu/REDW_SPZ_IW_00.2018092700.gif http://mbmgquake-eidsserver.mtech.edu/RLMT_BHZ_US_00.2018101300.gif http://mbmgquake-eidsserver.mtech.edu/RSSD_SPZ_IU_00.2018101300.gif

04:45:36 <ynpvisitor10> That's probably the EQ you're talking about
04:46:29 <ynpvisitor18> Yep but past research has shown earthquakes in Alaska has created a earthquake at Yellowstone.
04:47:33 <ynpvisitor18> That paper was done by Bob Smith at the University of Utah
04:47:57 <ynpvisitor10> While that may be true, you do have to take into consideration that Alaska lies on the same plate as Yellowstone
04:48:45 <ynpvisitor18> True, and so is the Norther part of Japan.
04:48:59 <ynpvisitor10> Plus, Alaska is closer by than Kamchatka
04:49:49 <ynpvisitor18> Guess has to look at the timing of those earthquake, as ther is 4 that show on the monitors and do the miles map.
04:50:30 <ynpvisitor10> YMC: http://quake.utah.edu/station/heli/YMC.png
04:51:03 <ynpvisitor18> http://mbmgquake-eidsserver.mtech.edu/welcome.html
04:51:56 <ynpvisitor18> It is a pain in the butt for me to calculate the time of the earthquake to miles, distance etc.
04:52:25 <ynpvisitor18> If I did it all the time it would be easier.
04:52:58 <ynpvisitor10> This may help: https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/?utm_source=Science%20Explorer&utm_medium=Highlighted%20Box&utm_campaign=Latest%20Earthquakes#%7B%22autoUpdate%22%3A%5B%22autoUpdate%22%5D%2C%22basemap%22%3A%22grayscale%22%2C%22feed%22%3A%221day_all%22%2C%22listFormat%22%3A%22default%22%2C%22mapposition%22%3A%5B%5B-4.565473550710278%2C-263.14453125%5D%2C%5B74.59010800882325%2C-49.39453125
04:53:06 <ynpvisitor18> And there is 4 that show. so Pwave, Swave blah
04:54:36 <ynpvisitor18> Where is Bob Smith when you need him? I'm lazy.:lol:

05:08:39 <ynpvisitor22> yes
05:09:41 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
05:09:54 <ynpvisitor22> text sent
05:10:04 <ynpvisitor63> GO INDY! Sorry Graham
05:11:08 <ynpvisitor22> good catch DG, missed you for a few days
05:11:16 <ynpvisitor999®> too busy with school
05:11:36 <ynpvisitor22> there is always that:)
05:13:21 <ynpvisitor63> Squirrely wind
05:13:39 <ynpvisitor999®> LC splashing
05:14:28 <ynpvisitor22> glad Bee waited for daylight
05:15:33 <ynpvisitor999®> so, how was Giant on the cam?
05:16:01 <ynpvisitor63> It was cold so the eruption was spectacular!
05:16:07 <ynpvisitor22> looked good!
05:16:38 <ynpvisitor63> "Atomic" :)
05:21:51 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
05:23:21 <ynpvisitor999®> tall one
05:27:46 <ynpvisitor999®> that was fun
05:27:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
05:28:26 <ynpvisitor22> should be ini
05:29:03 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm not quite sure
05:29:41 <ynpvisitor22> wasn't acting like
05:30:08 <ynpvisitor999®> this definitely the worst dual you can have on Geyser Hill as seen from the cam
05:30:37 <ynpvisitor63> I like BH played simultaneously with its sound file https://www.nps.gov/yell/learn/photosmultimedia/sounds-beehivegeyser.htm
05:31:25 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope a double plume can be seen from the cam
05:31:39 <ynpvisitor999®> as in, on the captures
05:33:42 <ynpvisitor22> my capture shows 0725 Lion start
05:35:55 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't think Lion was still erupting water around 0732, so this wouldn't be an initial if you're going with ~7m water for initial
05:36:39 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks 22
05:38:06 <ynpvisitor22> last seconds of 25 plume showing good about 26:06
05:38:40 <ynpvisitor22> did not look like ini
05:38:57 <GO MORNING> maybe someone will find others on the replay
05:40:02 <ynpvisitor22> Grand
05:47:10 <ynpvisitor22> 8min
05:49:52 <ynpvisitor22> 10min
05:52:50 <GO MORNING> dome
06:09:15 <ynpvisitor22> OF
06:39:17 <GO MORNING> lovely weather
06:39:45 <ynpvisitor22> Yes just beautiful!
06:40:38 <ynpvisitor22> Did not see lion on overnight, but that dosent mean it waswn't there
06:40:57 <ynpvisitor22> was not
06:41:02 <GO MORNING> thanks for checking
06:41:20 <ynpvisitor22> yw
06:45:17 <GO MORNING> need to send someone out to Lion too and get reports on NG
06:46:00 <GO MORNING> oh, and Dome too. we were lucky with BH
07:06:15 <ynpvisitor89> 🌵:sun:😎
07:21:38 <ynpvisitor55> Looks like West to OF and Mammoth to OF are the only roads open right now
07:23:06 <Emily> does that include norris?
07:24:16 <ynpvisitor55> Norris is on the Mammoth to OF route Emily
07:25:06 <Emily> Well then it does. thats good then for sb people
07:25:30 <ynpvisitor55> Ha, who are they?
07:25:44 <ynpvisitor55> Silly to go this early
07:26:17 <Emily> Suzzanne and Hk maybe. Udo and others from west. Dave from B
07:26:38 <ynpvisitor55> Dave came to his senses! Not going
07:26:54 <Emily> Daisy
07:26:57 <ynpvisitor55> Udo said he is not going this weekend
07:27:26 <ynpvisitor55> hk and S might check on it yet may wait for roads to improve
07:27:36 <Kevin L™> I think HK & Suzanne are heading home today after checking sb.
07:27:37 <Emily> probably
07:27:43 <Emily> ok
07:27:47 <Emily> just too snowy
07:28:12 <ynpvisitor55> The roads are a mess until the plows get to them
07:28:15 <Kevin L™> Not sure how they will get home though.
07:28:40 <ynpvisitor55> From where Kevin?
07:28:51 <Emily> Laramie
07:29:17 <Emily> Probably cant take targetee pass or whatever so have to go out to 80 then east
07:29:17 <ynpvisitor55> They leave Tuesday so south will be fine by then
07:29:49 <Kevin L™> I think right now the only way would be through West.
07:30:06 <ynpvisitor55> They aren’t leaving today
07:40:11 <Kevin L™> From the "You Can't Make These Up Department": https://wreg.com/2018/10/12/man-run-over-by-lawn-mower-while-trying-to-kill-son-with-chainsaw/
07:53:47 <LindaG> Tough against a grey sky
07:58:27 <LindaG> Lion?
07:58:44 <Kevin L™> Yep
08:02:04 <LindaG> LC spurting
08:23:55 <Kevin L™> Time for some training. Enjoy the snow. :p
08:41:55 <ynpvisitor999®> who turned the visibility down?
08:59:00 <ynpvisitor999®> weather cleared up fast
09:00:08 <ynpvisitor999®> bad wind direction though :(
09:00:58 <ynpvisitor13> looks like they're closing the west entrance
09:11:08 <ynpvisitor55> YNP: Closed: Dunraven Pass, Canyon-Norris, Norris-Madison, Madison-West, Madison-Old Faithful, OF-West Thumb, Canyon-Lake, Sylvan Pass
09:11:21 <ynpvisitor55> Yikes
09:11:50 <ynpvisitor55> Too many accidents I bet
09:13:06 <ynpvisitor21> Hope the people at OF don't mind staying there a while.
09:13:11 <ynpvisitor55> Wonder what happens to the folks that are there already?
09:13:29 <ynpvisitor55> They must have to wait it out
09:14:05 <ynpvisitor21> Lion
09:14:35 <ynpvisitor55> There’s fisherman everywhere, I wonder if they make them leave
09:15:10 <ynpvisitor...> A different Lion
09:16:31 <ynpvisitor55> hk and S might be stuck at Norris
09:21:29 <GO MORNING> will the benches get covered?
09:23:24 <GO MORNING> my guess is they just clease the entrances and gates...dont clear people out
09:24:09 <ynpvisitor999®> I think the benches will be covered, though not this month
09:26:48 <GO MORNING> should clear up in time for NG?
09:33:48 <ynpvisitor999®> hope so
09:44:20 <GO MORNING> unhappy peeps at the west gate i bet
09:46:29 <ynpvisitor25> bad weather for selfies anyway
09:53:52 <ynpvisitor55> Steady stream of cars leaving via West
10:01:56 <ynpvisitor...> I'm taking snowshoes :(
10:02:42 <ynpvisitor55> Are you going Kent?
10:03:03 <ynpvisitor...> Monday night in Fluffyville
10:03:54 <ynpvisitor55> It will be better by then
10:05:01 <ynpvisitor...> I am hoping. I tried to shift a day latter but no rooms available, at least not at a rate I would pay
10:05:50 <ynpvisitor55> Monday 46 degrees, Tuesday in 50’s
10:06:43 <GO MORNING> Monday is SB day
10:07:47 <ynpvisitor...> Before I arrive. Geyser gods do not like me.
10:11:58 <GO MORNING> are you going for a class Monday?
10:14:01 <ynpvisitor...> No, projects before closing. I waited last year and got locked out closing weekend.
10:14:57 <ynpvisitor...> I hope the batteries are dead on Bill's cameras. If not I am in trouble :)
10:16:01 <GO MORNING> haha..good job you didnt say that out loud
10:16:49 <ynpvisitor...> I support Bill's efforts totally!
10:25:25 <ynpvisitor22> Thosk, according to my capture both of your Lion entry's are exact times.
10:26:04 <ynpvisitor22> Lion
10:26:05 <ynpvisitor999®> speaking of Lion, is it ie at the moment?
10:26:15 <ynpvisitor22> yes
10:26:16 <ynpvisitor999®> it is
10:29:06 <ynpvisitor22> DG, I looked at the overnight capture and my own capture neither showed any lion before your 0725
10:32:32 <ynpvisitor31> What's happening at West, road looks blocked. Icy?
10:33:30 <GO MORNING> dome
10:33:35 <ynpvisitor22> YNP: Closed: Dunraven Pass, Canyon-Norris, Norris-Madison, Madison-West, Madison-Old Faithful, OF-West Thumb, Canyon-Lake, Sylvan Pass
10:33:52 <GO MORNING> all roads other than N to NE entrance are closed. guessing too many accidents
10:34:00 <GO MORNING> dome
10:35:47 <ynpvisitor31> Wow! Cold and icy!
10:35:53 <GO MORNING> blue sky at N entrance
10:36:20 <ynpvisitor...> Old image :(
10:36:45 <GO MORNING> still looks nice
10:36:58 <ynpvisitor...> Yes it does
10:37:21 <ynpvisitor31> Beautiful!
10:37:37 <ynpvisitor22> electric cam, snow covered
10:37:52 <GO MORNING> blue sky at West
10:38:14 <ynpvisitor...> I hope that headed for Old Faithful
10:51:06 <ynpvisitor...> Good crowd on static
10:51:20 <GO MORNING> still a decent crowd for OF .. maybe seeing it a second time while they wait
10:53:36 <Kevin L™> Well at least the Knights aren't losing.
10:53:48 <GO MORNING> of
10:54:39 <GO MORNING> no goals at all .... wow
10:55:04 <Kevin L™> They stomped us at home.
10:55:19 <Kevin L™> OF slime. :P
10:55:52 <Kevin L™> Turn on the wipers.
10:56:32 <ynpvisitor97> someone posted a dome wiper the other day, maybe one will be installed soon
10:58:04 <GO MORNING> SBreport in ... looks like not ready yet
10:58:24 <ynpvisitor97> West gate has a line. Maybe they will check people's TIRES!
10:59:04 <Dave from B> Happy Saturday everyone
10:59:06 <GO MORNING> still looks closed
10:59:24 <ynpvisitor97> Big surprise on SB
11:00:07 <Dave from B> 2” of snow in Billings and still lightly coming down
11:00:31 <ynpvisitor97> They closed the whole park Dave, except North
11:00:39 <Kevin L™> 🌵🌤😎
11:00:50 <Dave from B> Wow
11:01:16 <ynpvisitor999®> of course, Kevin, being fancy with those emojis
11:01:22 <ynpvisitor97> people do not know how to drive on snow
11:01:32 <ynpvisitor22> snow shuts everything down and causes cancer :)
11:01:53 <ynpvisitor97> down basin plume
11:01:58 <Kevin L™> Never heard of a road closed for heat.
11:02:16 <GO MORNING> roads buckle Kevin
11:02:29 <ynpvisitor97> well, there was FLD a few years ago, bubbling gook from their bad chip seal project
11:02:46 <Kevin L™> Good point.
11:03:27 <Dave from B> A good day to clean closets and file cabinet
11:05:44 <GO MORNING> blue sky at OF now
11:07:00 <Kevin L™> West gate open.
11:13:20 <ynpvisitor97> the cars are lined up
11:15:27 <GO MORNING> dome
11:24:40 <Kevin L™> Goal!
11:25:00 <Kevin L™> 1:25 left
11:28:13 <Kevin L™> Yea! Knights 1-0.
11:29:08 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
11:31:29 <ynpvisitor97> even bigger line at West Gate
11:31:47 <ynpvisitor97> looks like a summer day
11:32:33 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand ie
11:36:05 <ynpvisitor114> west gate is a mess now.
11:39:20 <ynpvisitor999®> guess they all want one last chance of viewing Whirligig :)
11:39:40 <ynpvisitor999®> or that other sput nearby
11:43:17 <ynpvisitor999®> G1C | 9m21s
11:55:38 <GO MORNING> Dome
12:29:25 <ynpvisitor999®> nice static
12:29:37 <ynpvisitor999®> not so nice cam image
12:29:59 <ynpvisitor22> ugh!
12:30:49 <ynpvisitor...> Wasn't that special :(
12:31:01 <ynpvisitor22> Lion ie
12:34:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome ie
12:38:57 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep
12:40:16 <ynpvisitor999®> so apparantly the water level is low in the Sawmill complex - even Churn is about an inch below overflow
12:40:50 <ynpvisitor22> 6 Lion eruptions this series so far
12:41:31 <GO MORNING> i would assume 7, and maybe the first seen wasnt the initial
12:41:40 <ynpvisitor999®> at least, actually. I think we missed at least two eruptions - one of which is the initial
12:45:06 <ynpvisitor22> very dark last night, none showed on the capture, but you could not see, although Castle was visible the time that any Lion should have been
12:46:33 <ynpvisitor999®> what's the ending time of the captures?
12:47:53 <ynpvisitor22> 0710 for Gosa captures
12:48:12 <ynpvisitor...> I am assuming a double interval on Daisy puts it about 3PM?
12:50:25 <ynpvisitor22> the Daisy posts are all in E times in the gaps
12:50:54 <ynpvisitor...> TY
12:51:04 <ynpvisitor22> sorry you said PM
12:51:22 <ynpvisitor22> I thought AM
12:52:11 <ynpvisitor...> I just added 5'30" to Emily's
12:52:20 <ynpvisitor22> the correct answer is yes
12:52:28 <ynpvisitor...> :)
12:53:00 <ynpvisitor22> Daisy now
12:53:17 <ynpvisitor...> Give me 40 seconds
12:53:51 <ynpvisitor...> VC will appreciate this one
12:56:18 <ynpvisitor999®> couldn't find any Lion on the overnight and thus 'upgraded' 0725 to initial
12:57:45 <ynpvisitor22> sounds good, I saw none on GOSA nor my captures also
12:59:28 <ynpvisitor22> also the two near starts are actually exact
13:04:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
13:06:15 <GO MORNING> or not
13:06:25 <ynpvisitor999®> minor
13:08:24 <ynpvisitor22> it puffed for~10 sec
13:08:50 <ynpvisitor22> small splash
13:09:38 <GO MORNING> i saw the uffing, looked like a roar to me
13:11:18 <ynpvisitor22> nothing near a minor
13:11:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Fair enough
13:11:44 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome ie
13:11:54 <ynpvisitor999®> though that would suggest 1429 was a minor
13:12:49 <ynpvisitor22> I believe you are right, i"ll look and change
13:16:15 <ynpvisitor22> Yes ~2.5 min for 1429
13:16:34 <ynpvisitor999®> quite long for a minor
13:18:29 <ynpvisitor22> I'll leave it as is for now
13:22:38 <ynpvisitor22> Lion was 14:28:55 to 14:33:26
13:24:15 <ynpvisitor22> OF steam obscured much of it
13:27:13 <GO MORNING> yeah, it wasnt a minor
13:32:14 <ynpvisitor27> Nice day for Dave to be setting at SB.
13:33:01 <ynpvisitor22> I'll bet Dave is at home sitting by the fire :)
13:52:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome
13:54:55 <ynpvisitor89> Lion ie ?
13:55:18 <ynpvisitor999®> too bad a big fluff thing is in front of it
13:55:51 <ynpvisitor999®> not again
13:56:20 <ynpvisitor...> Plume has been the place to be for Fluffy most of the day
13:57:14 <ynpvisitor999®> short?
13:57:22 <ynpvisitor999®> nope
13:59:15 <ynpvisitor999®> thought OF started @ 1555
13:59:33 <ynpvisitor...> I am surprised at the size of the crowds today
14:02:22 <ynpvisitor9> The crowds were first from being stuck there and then from hundreds of cars going in the west gate in a half hour’s time
14:02:32 <ynpvisitor9> Forced crowding
14:03:25 <ynpvisitor...> I suspect the Geyser Grill did a land office business today
14:04:01 <ynpvisitor9> Upper Hams still open too I think
14:04:46 <ynpvisitor...> I'll check just out of curiosity. 26° now.
14:06:02 <ynpvisitor...> Through the 28th. Good to know
14:06:51 <ynpvisitor9> Thankfully not JUST the Geyser Grill yet!
14:08:34 <ynpvisitor...> I do fries there on opening and closing. I will count this trip as closing just in case :)
15:20:21 <GO MORNING> ng
15:21:22 <ynpvisitor...> Nice
15:22:10 <ynpvisitor96> North Goggle?
15:22:22 <LindaG> What is that?
15:22:38 <LindaG> Ah
15:23:05 <GO MORNING> yeah its an intermediate eruption
15:23:35 <LindaG> Nice
15:23:38 <ynpvisitor96> tks GM, very nice
15:24:21 <GO MORNING> NG often erupts a few hhours after Lion series, or during the series
15:24:34 <GO MORNING> it has often has one minor and then one intermediate
15:24:39 <GO MORNING> hard to see it today
15:24:50 <ynpvisitor999®> so apparantly I missed an NG... Great.
15:25:39 <LindaG> I've seen it go off but not that long
15:27:12 <GO MORNING> the minors only last about 20s but the intermediates last 2 to 4 minutes. Majors last 4min or so I gather but we have not seen any this year that I know of
15:30:36 <GO MORNING> wb DG. OF cooperated for the NG eruption. not sure if we missed any monrs prior to that, view has been difficult
15:32:23 <GO MORNING> NPS predicting Grand +- 30min? sweet
15:37:27 <GO MORNING> daisy
16:09:38 <ynpvisitor70> Dome ie
16:35:59 <ynpvisitor...> Nice color and 23°
16:48:49 <ynpvisitor18> We don't allow 23° in the dead of Winter!
17:17:46 <ynpvisitor103> grand
17:21:21 <Kevin L™> 50' high and 300' wide.
