23:12:33 <ynpvisitor8> Weather for closing weekend going downhill
23:13:13 <ynpvisitor8> Daisy 0112 above the ground fog???
23:24:00 <ynpvisitor8> OF 0122 ie wc
03:51:16 <ynpvisitor1> longest SB interval since the Jul/Aug disturbance and slowdown
03:55:13 <ynpvisitor15> disturbance was in June
03:56:24 <ynpvisitor1> true. first eruption was in July .....
04:12:01 <ynpvisitor1> Sept was an amazing month for SB, 6 eruptions with one on the 1st and 30th
04:30:27 <ynpvisitor102> Not easy to see BH...
04:30:58 <ynpvisitor85> nope started ~0627
04:32:07 <ynpvisitor19> at least we know it is in there
04:33:48 <ynpvisitor102> Well spotted
04:34:49 <ynpvisitor19> Grand too I think
05:01:24 <ynpvisitor8> Seismo way too quiet. :thumbsdown: :( :thumbsdown: DfB has my sympathy.
05:02:52 <ynpvisitor15> better quiet than overnight!!!
05:06:49 <ynpvisitor100> Daisy ie?
05:30:32 <Jimbo Lanthanum> Another rare earth
05:32:15 <ynpvisitor188> I think today will be the day for SB. Dave's lucky day.;)
05:32:40 <ynpvisitor188> with Kitt in also.
05:39:11 <Jimbo Lanthanum> Great colors right now
05:39:26 <ynpvisitor100> Beautiful!
05:40:12 <ynpvisitor188> red in the morning, not a good sib
05:40:27 <ynpvisitor188> sign
05:57:36 <Bill> Morning
05:58:14 <ynpvisitor188> morning
06:00:30 <Kent> Bill, no cams. I took a tie and even combed my hair :)
06:00:36 <Kent> Good morning
06:31:34 <Jimbo Lanthanum> I don't like this color :(
06:39:47 <ynpvisitor85> I do not see daisy on the replay at 0706
06:43:52 <ynpvisitor100> 85 Difficult to see- may have missed it, questionable at best
06:44:37 <ynpvisitor100> I can delete if appropriate
06:47:36 <ynpvisitor66> 3h24min interval does not fit the current daisy next daisy sb ~0900 but will be hard to see
06:49:19 <ynpvisitor...> Fog moving down basin. Fun to watch
06:57:45 <ynpvisitor...> No joy from the seismo :(
07:02:07 <ynpvisitor...> I don't know that I understand the birt with all the geezers off the boardwalk this morning.
07:02:14 <ynpvisitor...> OF 0901 wc
07:02:39 <ynpvisitor100> Researchers
07:03:23 <ynpvisitor...> Dummies more likely
07:04:29 <ynpvisitor...> Researchers due closing day I think?
07:07:30 <ynpvisitor100> You're right - they come in on the 5th. Dummies here:)
07:23:56 <BSK> Good morning
07:24:12 <Bill> Morning
07:24:45 <BSK> Just don't zoom in on the researchers and if they are on the OF cone, have them entirely out of view. They won't be on cone during eruption window.
07:27:11 <ynpvisitor100> Webcam operators have already gotten the information and directions. :)
07:27:21 <BSK> That view is rather mesmerizing.
07:27:39 <ynpvisitor100> I like it too.
07:42:04 <Emily> Hello
07:43:08 <Emily>
07:51:07 <Jimbo Lanthanum> I'll be back shortly
08:23:14 <ynpvisitor19> So can you see anything on the seismo that looks like Dave jumping up and down trying to get SB to do something?
08:26:47 <Betty> I think he´s jumping, weather it is cold or trying to trigger SB
08:27:32 <Kevin L™🌵> I noticed the Alps had a dusting. You ready for skiing?
08:27:47 <Betty> Sure!!!
08:28:57 <Kevin L™🌵> If SB doesn't go today will Dave stay another day?
08:29:30 <Betty> not sure about that, but he is the boss and can decide
08:31:23 <ynpvisitor19> I remember he said he had a boss
08:32:05 <Kevin L™🌵> I just wonder if he would want to spend another day in "prison".
08:32:19 <ynpvisitor19> Probably hard to say no to his boss as he is the only one left to boss around.
08:33:02 <ynpvisitor19> Isn't this about the last chance to see SB with out taking a snow coach?
08:33:12 <Betty> Dave is the owner of his business, his "boss" is his wife ;-)
08:33:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably pretty close.
08:35:25 <Betty> wb Kevin
08:35:55 <Kevin L™🌵> It wanted me to be 48 today. Just noticed that.
08:37:27 <Betty> OF
08:38:01 <Kevin L™🌵> No 🌈 today.
08:41:46 <Kevin L™🌵> I am going to 🌈 Friday though! 😊
08:46:14 <Art> Nov 5th 8am is the date of road closure
08:47:10 <Art> So IF Steamboat goes in the next day or two there might be a chance for one more ;)
08:47:36 <Betty> hi Art
08:47:43 <ynpvisitor19> So this is about his last chance. Cause it could snow and close the roads.
08:48:20 <Art> Hi Betty, how was the rest of your trip?
08:48:51 <Betty> it was fun, but not as successful as it should have been
08:50:13 <Betty> we could not visit Lehmann Cave in Great Basin Ntl park and found no parking lot for hiking into Zion
08:50:38 <Betty> but alternative program was ok
08:55:06 <Betty> Depression
08:59:51 <ynpvisitor19> Well enjoy Daisy.
09:00:08 <Kevin L™🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
09:00:51 <Betty> morning Linda
09:01:16 <LindaG> Good morning Betty and all.
09:01:40 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
09:01:44 <LindaG> Just thought I'd see what was happening. 😉
09:03:33 <LindaG> Hi Kevin, ah you woke up. 😉
09:04:10 <Kevin L™🌵> I am not sure. This could be a dream.
09:04:50 <Betty> :-)
09:05:50 <Betty> Daisy
09:05:54 <Kevin L™🌵> It was a busy weekend. Tree trimming time and the Granddaughters were here.
09:06:44 <LindaG> That sounds like fu though. Theyll have great memories.
09:07:07 <Rice> Is the trace growing onthe YNM graph?
09:09:25 <Betty> hmm, cannot tell
09:09:39 <Betty> I sure hope it does soon
09:09:59 <Rice> It looks thicker than the previos line, but need more data.
09:10:03 <Kevin L™🌵> I think I need to get a smaller lot or less trees. Cost me $420 to get the trimmings removed.
09:11:31 <Betty> wow
09:12:21 <Kevin L™🌵> And that does not include loading or trimming!
09:15:32 <Kevin L™🌵> I made schnitzel sandwiches while my Daughter was here Betty. They were a big hit.
09:15:49 <Betty> I bet
09:16:59 <Kevin L™🌵> It was the first time my Daughter and Son-in-Law had them. Still strange seeing the other two kids putting bbq sauce on them.
09:17:21 <Betty> haha
09:18:47 <Betty> trace is still a small line :-(
09:18:55 <Kevin L™🌵> I will be heading to Idaho in a couple of weeks to see the new Grandson. I will be making lebkuchen without nuts for my other Son-in-Law
09:19:29 <Betty> sounds good. Did he ever have lebkuchen?
09:19:36 <Kevin L™🌵> YNM looks normal.
09:20:26 <Kevin L™🌵> He is allergic to nuts so he hasn't been able to eat them. I got some oblaten so I am going to do them without nuts for him.
09:25:41 <Betty> LC ie
09:28:26 <Betty> hi Eric
09:33:05 <Eric> Hi Betty
09:41:13 <ynpvisitor79> Where do you think folks are staying in between Steamboat sits? Mammoth campground/West?
09:49:04 <ynpvisitor28> Dave stayed in Gardiner
09:49:22 <Eric> Their cars :-D
09:49:33 <ynpvisitor28> I bet Bob Jones stayed in West
09:49:49 <ynpvisitor28> and not their cars Eric, too cold and not night time gazers in the bunch
09:50:29 <Eric> Are rangers even staffed at norris this time of year?
09:50:46 <Eric> Nice looking castle
09:50:57 <ynpvisitor28> I would guess LE looks in on the parking lot
09:51:02 <ynpvisitor79> Probably not, I'd guess all interps are done for the m ost park
09:51:14 <ynpvisitor79> LE would be the only ones around
09:51:34 <ynpvisitor28> nice Castle bursts
09:52:12 <Eric> I hope Dave gets SB today...smashing the button for him here.
09:52:28 <Betty> same here
09:52:28 <ynpvisitor28> Kitt is on day 4, leaving today
09:52:46 <ynpvisitor28> They have a few hours left. Dave mentioned he was leaving on Tues
09:53:18 <Eric> Yes, but I think he will stay through the late afternoon/evening
09:53:43 <ynpvisitor28> Not past dark is my guess, so 6 more hours
09:54:23 <ynpvisitor28> Castle will be a major is my thought...
09:54:31 <Eric> We are close to an 8 day interval.
09:54:58 <ynpvisitor28> it makes sense that sooner or later it would change function, just nice it did not happen sooner
09:56:25 <ynpvisitor28> Sucks for Dave though
09:56:48 <ynpvisitor28> still hoping the seismo has a nice thick line on it SOON
09:57:42 <Eric> The cistern and intervals don't look like things have changed yet.
09:57:59 <Eric> Keeping my fingers crossed for all of them.
09:58:25 <ynpvisitor28> there were notes that Cistern seemed a bit lethargic earlier
09:58:53 <ynpvisitor28> and we have no true overflow status report
10:00:56 <Eric> The last overflow status was boiling in different ranges, which seems typical. I assume if it has changed, it would be reported.
10:02:05 <ynpvisitor28> that was the latest, earlier in the time frame there were other reports
10:02:28 <ynpvisitor28> and again, no true time when overflow began, which was the benchmark, right?
10:03:05 <ynpvisitor28> how come Castle stays in the GT predictions even when an eruption is posted?
10:03:30 <ynpvisitor5> Well, Dave is going to miss Grand. So am I.
10:04:13 <ynpvisitor28> well at least Dave is not trying to see Grand 5
10:08:14 <Betty> Castle stays in GT prediction unless it is called Major or minor. Don´t know why that is
10:11:29 <Eric> Nice steam phase on castle too
10:14:58 <ynpvisitor90> OF
10:34:29 <Betty> Grand
10:42:24 <ynpvisitor105> 8 minutes
10:45:14 <Jimbo Heavy> ending I think
10:45:29 <Eric> bummmer, one and done
10:45:50 <Eric> G1C?
10:46:20 <Jimbo Heavy> I don't remember what C stands for
10:46:32 <Eric> Continues
10:46:44 <Eric> or Q quiet
10:46:57 <Betty> vent an turban continue
10:47:08 <Jimbo Heavy> Now I remember
10:47:17 <Jimbo Heavy> Looks like it
10:47:30 <Betty> q quit
10:54:17 <ynpvisitor63> On YNM I want to see BWAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
11:11:14 <Eric> Wheres the Beef?
11:11:51 <Kevin L™🌵>
11:12:09 <Eric> I don't think there is anyone back there!
11:36:48 <Betty> OF
11:37:20 <Betty> Daisy
11:37:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Right on cue
11:40:36 <Eric> At least it's not 46 degrees and raining on the people up at norris!
11:40:51 <Eric> wet and cold are miserable
11:40:58 <Eric> cold you can bundle up for
11:41:28 <Eric> Kevin, has Dave called you from the payphone yet?
11:41:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Not that I know of.
11:42:10 <Kevin L™🌵> No missed calls from area code 307
11:54:26 <Eric> Curious if I can get the digital data associated with the seismograph from norris and create an algorithm to detect SB eruptions.
11:54:51 <Eric> Doesn't seem like it would be too difficult to guess at them with some accuracy
11:56:03 <Betty> that would be nice
12:04:02 <Eric> Hey fishynp, is there a direct was to access the YNM seismometer data via an API?
12:04:48 <Eric> Bill is here too :-D
12:05:06 <Eric> Nice shake at norris
12:05:21 <Eric> at about 13:29
12:05:46 <Bill> I just got back from vacation, Eric, so me being "here" is a little generous. Maybe physically.
12:05:47 <Betty> bet that was at least a whoohoo
12:05:48 <Eric> woops, 13:59
12:06:05 <Eric> hahaha, I totally uunderstand :-D
12:06:27 <Eric> Just saw your name and figured I would say Hi and welcome back.
12:06:52 <Eric> We kept the NW pretty dry for you.
12:07:19 <Bill> Hah! Thanks. I appreciate not driving back over the passes with snow on the roads
12:07:40 <Eric> Yes, it is one of the driest falls I remember
12:07:59 <Eric> Will be interesting to see if Winter is a beast or not
12:08:20 <Eric> I gotta go grab some back in a while.
12:20:00 <fishynp> Eric, you can get the data using the IRIS timeseries builder ( You need to fill in the Network code (WY), the Station (YNM), the Location (01), the Channel (HHZ for vertical, HHE for E-W, and HHN for N-S), and the start and end times.
12:20:54 <fishynp> for the output, you can choose a plot, ascii data, or other formats. It will create a URL at the bottom that you can click on to get the data.
12:35:03 <Jeff in CT> Hi everyone
12:35:14 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
12:35:18 <Betty> hi Jeff
12:35:56 <Jeff in CT> No Steamboat? Shame
12:36:09 <Jeff in CT> I was really rooting for it to go
12:37:24 <Jeff in CT> On the other hand, I am expecting Lion at about 16:50
13:06:13 <ynpvisitor20> I wonder if that was a strong minor right before 1400. Seismo got thick for a few minutes
13:07:27 <Jeff in CT> 20 - do you mean at 13:59 on YNM?
13:08:09 <ynpvisitor20> Yes
13:08:31 <ynpvisitor20> A nice thick blip
13:09:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> more likely the gazers doing jumping jacks to warm up .... or confuse us
13:10:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am guessing the minors don't show up... they are not that noisy
13:10:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Someone had a bean burrito for lunch?
13:11:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> over 8 days now, not a good sign
13:11:23 <Jeff in CT> Compare OF eruption times with YFT - not much of a correlation, for example
13:13:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum just before OF ruined it.
13:20:03 <GO STEAMBOAT!> Thanks fishynp!
13:24:39 <ynpvisitor66> Kevin, your Aurum 1511:32 to 1512:33
13:25:09 <Kevin L™🌵> ty
13:25:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Field observation I take it.
13:26:30 <ynpvisitor66> no my instant replay observation
13:26:39 <Kevin L™🌵> OK
13:30:28 <ynpvisitor66> LC
13:44:13 <GO STEAMBOAT!> wow..those seismographs capture a lot of data @ 100 readings per second.
13:44:41 <GO STEAMBOAT!> a reading every 10 milliseconds.
13:46:06 <GO STEAMBOAT!> Now to figure out what the average z axis shake is for a steamboat eruption start
13:51:21 <Betty> pretty nice weather now
13:56:06 <Jeff in CT> Hopefully sky will clear for a moonlight night
13:56:10 <GO STEAMBOAT!> over 50 degrees!
13:57:12 <Betty> Daisy
13:58:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> Eric will be able to tell us if we missed any eruptions this year :)
14:02:52 <Kevin L™🌵> I need to get some projects done. Cam controls are released if another camop wants to take it.
14:03:36 <BSK> Okay. If there is anything deserving of greater attention I'll grab.
14:04:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> another Norris seismo slice loaded .. and no eruption :(
14:05:28 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
14:05:38 <Jeff in CT> Night, Betty
14:05:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight
14:22:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> i wonder how many people are at Norris?
14:29:19 <Jeff in CT> Too bad we can't send them a pizza!
14:32:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Is that a Dominoes hot spot?
14:33:42 <Jeff in CT> Should be, shouldn't it - given all of the late night vigils gazers have put in; kinda like grad school :lol:
14:35:01 <Jeff in CT> Speaking of which, time for dinner. Good night all
14:35:06 <ynpvisitor49> I wonder if you could keep a pizza warm between West and Norris?
14:35:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't they have pizza heaters in the delivery vehicles?
14:36:06 <GO STEAMBOAT!> Night Jeff
14:36:20 <ynpvisitor49> West is small. I think Wild West just uses a pickup
14:36:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Knight Jeff
14:39:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> pizza from Canyon was a possibility ... but not now
14:43:08 <ynpvisitor66> cold pizza is good, bring to hungry gazers, it will disappear :)
14:49:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Doggie
14:51:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> beeis steamy
14:52:10 <Craig> its too early for grand
14:52:29 <Craig> grotto ?
14:52:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes
15:05:13 <BSK> Dark and steamy... very moody.
15:11:46 <ynpvisitor79> Rainbow on static!
15:13:15 <BSK> Gorgeous
15:27:15 <GO STEAMBOAT!> We are running out of daylight for our Norris friends :-(
15:28:15 <GO Steamboat #2> :(
15:28:59 <GO STEAMBOAT!> and those dark clouds that direction don't look great either.
15:29:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> not even the lottery winner can make it erupt
15:30:26 <BSK> Happy cam gazing, all. I'm off for the day.
15:30:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> bye
15:31:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybewe need all the chat peopleto be GO STEAMBOAR#
15:31:54 <BSK> GOOOOO Steamboat!
15:31:58 <BSK> Okay, I'm out.
15:32:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> come on Eric, you can do it
15:33:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> not STEDAMBOAR ... haha
15:34:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> not STEAMBOAR ... haha
15:36:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> Grand has been edging closer to 5 eruptions in one day
15:49:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> lion
15:51:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Did anyone take the cam?
15:52:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Back for the World Series so I can drive again.
15:53:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> wb. mostly distracted here
16:05:39 <LindaG> Kevin I can take the cam if you want off.
16:06:12 <GO Steamboat #2> YNM is really quiet. TOo quiet
16:06:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds good. Controls are released
16:06:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Thanks
16:08:17 <ynpvisitor78> That was quick. Lol no problem not doing much
16:25:27 <LindaG1> Daisy?
16:27:03 <Craig> Think so Linda
16:48:06 <ynpvisitor23> Dave is going to miss Grand
16:49:55 <Kevin L™🌵> And the Dodgers are losing too.
17:01:40 <LindaG1> Grand
17:05:42 <ynpvisitor66> stream is stuttering
17:05:57 <LindaG1> Looks like lion
17:06:13 <Kevin L™⚾> Getting dark
17:06:55 <GO Steamboat #2> yes
17:07:05 <GO Steamboat #2> Still obnoxious silent on YNM
17:07:19 <LindaG1> Was assuming the moo. Would keep it lit but I guess there is cloud cover
17:07:19 <GO Steamboat #2> I guess dave didnt bring the right camo
17:08:44 <LindaG1> Just need beehive
17:12:15 <ynpvisitor66> 2nd
17:13:55 <ynpvisitor22> I think we will still get some light from the full moon. I am hoping for an OK Beehive.
17:15:28 <LindaG1> It's in the weird can't see a thing time.
17:25:55 <Kevin L™⚾> And we are B&W
17:26:25 <Kevin L™⚾> Moon is probably behind the clouds
17:29:18 <LindaG1> Yup and fuzzy
17:41:22 <LindaG1> Looks like someone on the moon
17:44:56 <Kevin L™⚾> Dave must have left. Looks like Steamboat?
17:45:52 <Kevin L™⚾> Big signature too.
17:45:52 <GO Steamboat #2> thats it
17:46:27 <GO Steamboat #2> STeamboat 1929 E maj
17:47:19 <LindaG1> Yay!
17:47:29 <ynpvisitor28> I bet they all had left
17:47:37 <GO Steamboat #2> OHH yeah
17:47:40 <ynpvisitor28> Poor Dave. This might be the toughest one yet
17:47:43 <GO Steamboat #2> thats a strong signal
17:48:19 <ynpvisitor28> Tragic, why couldn't it have been 3 hours sooner?
17:48:47 <Kevin L™⚾> I hope it looked good enough that they stayed.
17:51:15 <ynpvisitor28> I think they were all on schedules
17:51:18 <Emily> I very hope so
17:51:24 <Emily> I so so so so so so hope so
17:51:54 <ynpvisitor28> maybe Tom C hung around
17:52:05 <ynpvisitor28> we'll find out, eventually
17:52:09 <Kevin L™⚾> I sent a text to Dave and Kitt and have not got a response so that is a good sign.
17:52:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope Dave stayed. Maybe they were still in the parking lot,civil twilight was only a few minutes before
17:53:05 <ynpvisitor28> dusk was a good half hour before, and Dave was riding his bike to his car
17:53:14 <ynpvisitor28> I'm guessing he left before dark
17:53:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> 24 24 19 11
17:54:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah CivilTwilight was over 30 minutes before ... hope they stayed
17:54:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> nottoo cold although out there all day it gets to you
17:55:29 <LindaG1> Where's the moon?
17:56:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> could do one more before closing
17:57:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> its hiding behind the clouds
17:58:20 <LindaG1> I think OF
17:59:09 <GO MORNING> goodnight
17:59:23 <LindaG1> Night
18:00:12 <Kevin L™⚾> Knight
18:03:39 <LindaG1> Lion? Hard to twll
18:07:00 <Kevin L™⚾> Just came back but looked like the endo fo a Lion.
18:09:11 <LindaG1> Pretty sure it was
18:09:31 <LindaG1> Waiting for beehive
18:09:55 <Kevin L™⚾> Timing was right for Lion.
18:10:33 <LindaG1> Colors coming back
