02:40:50 <ynpvisitor25> looks like Grand ie
07:11:40 <LindaG> Good morning, looks beautiful
07:11:53 <LindaG> And cold
07:24:41 <LindaG> I think Lion is going off back there
07:25:27 <Rice> I was thinking the same thing
07:25:51 <Dave from B™> Yep
07:26:14 <LindaG> LION ie
07:29:14 <LindaG> Do you guys mind me posting that, if I'm sure. I'm not really sure what the rules are.
07:29:39 <Dave from B™> Go ahead and post, Linda
07:29:57 <Dave from B™> If you want to enter something you're not sure of, put a "?" on the entry
07:30:00 <LindaG> Thx
07:30:12 <LindaG> Ok
07:49:30 <LindaG1> We need a bee now with that light
07:51:46 <Bill> Morning
07:52:05 <LindaG1> Good morning
07:53:40 <LindaG1> Bill did you get to SB?
07:57:02 <Bill> I drove by it around 615 last night. Stopped by the parking light and i could barely see the plump in the light, but there was nothing to be heard from the Norris parking lot
07:57:08 <Bill> I did get to see Giant though!
07:58:37 <LindaG1> I came on just after giant so I was reading about all the excitement. I think I saw giants last big plume. Impressive
08:00:08 <Dave from B™> It is amazing that they have erupted on the same day 4 times this year
08:01:14 <Bill> LindaG1, it was really impressive! The wind had died down and the plume was essentially straight up. It was a great view even with the temperature
08:01:31 <Bill> Dave from B™, It's been a hell of a year. I think i picked a good one to start working at the park.
08:01:59 <Eric> grand
08:02:10 <Eric> and good morning :-D
08:02:28 <Bill> hah, morning Eric
08:02:32 <Dave from B™> Bill, it will be all downhill from here. Is there any question that this is the best gazing year in history?
08:02:47 <ynpvisitor7> Very nice
08:03:15 <LindaG1> Nice that it cleared a bit for vrand
08:03:24 <Dave from B™> Lost in all the excitement of the 4 biggies is that Grand has had a great year with its consistency
08:05:00 <Eric> lake static camm is cool
08:05:27 <Eric> cold temps against the warm water make for neat fog/clouds
08:05:32 <Kent> It is
08:06:06 <Eric> looks like the entire park got a nice white blanket put on it last night.
08:08:23 <LindaG1> Great view of grand, that white plume in really standing out
08:08:24 <Eric> Alright...enjoy grand. I gotta get my 5 miles of walking in this morning :--D
08:25:44 <Kent> OF 0824 wc
08:26:09 <Dave from B™> Wow!
08:31:43 <Dave from B™> Morning Kent
08:33:23 <ynpvisitor...> Hey Dave.
08:42:51 <Bill> Not sure if this is old news for you guys, but here's a plot of the new loggers put out in response to the Ear Spring eruption and the new feature.
08:42:52 <Bill>
08:44:06 <Bill> Doublet N = overflow of doublet, NF_BW = new feature probe under boardwalk, NF_Runoff = temp probe downstream of new feature, P. Haze = Purple Haze aka The Grove, LMB = little muddy bubblers near the solitary path, N. Goggles = North Goggles
08:44:09 <ynpvisitor...> New to me. Thanks Bill.
08:44:31 <ynpvisitor35> Where did this come from? Yell. park website?
08:44:41 <Bill> Red lines are when i downloaded the loggers (i have to pick them up to download).
08:44:46 <Bill> It's just from the raw data, should be on GT as well
08:44:56 <Bill> if they're not...
08:45:16 <Bill>
08:45:21 <Bill> you can find the raw data there
08:46:27 <ynpvisitor...> Things look to have quieted down. Decision on moving boardwalk yet?
08:46:37 <Bill> This graph isnt posted anywhere. I'm trying to make in informed decision on what i want to do with those loggers over the winter. They only last for a month before they need to be downloaded. It's not always feasible for us to get down there exactly every month
08:47:11 <Bill> This is my first time looking at it. I'll go back out to the new features and see if we can open things back up or move the boardwalk
08:47:21 <ynpvisitor35> Thanks for sharing.
08:47:29 <ynpvisitor...> Yes
08:47:35 <ynpvisitor35> I'm sure the park has thought about alternate boardwalk routes.
08:48:17 <ynpvisitor5> A person has to put them in GT and my understanding is that hasn't happened yet
08:48:25 <Bill> Definitely. The thing is it's mostly wasted effort until that area settles back down (which, by looking at the data seems like it has)
08:49:16 <ynpvisitor35> To me, the simplest seems extending it northwest past Sponge, curving around to the north, around "Rupture".
08:49:33 <ynpvisitor35> And hooking up with the current boardwalk near Doublet.
08:54:38 <ynpvisitor91> And add a wide spot and bench near Aurum?
08:54:54 <ynpvisitor35> A bench at Aurum would be great.
08:55:02 <ynpvisitor35> The bench at Sponge is also nice - hope they keep it.
08:55:05 <ynpvisitor...> Bench near Aurum :heart:
08:55:17 <ynpvisitor35> It's fun watching Beach Spring there.
09:00:16 <ynpvisitor34> Kevin does not need a bench at Aurum, he keeps saying it is his last trip.
09:00:39 <ynpvisitor34> Speaking of Kevin, he broke BH
09:01:46 <Dave from B™> Do you know if anyone (like Mara) checked on F&M yesterday?
09:05:48 <Kevin L™🌵> I may not use it but I have kids and gradkids that will along with other gazers.
09:11:10 <BSK> good morning
09:11:37 <LindaG1> Good morning katie
09:12:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
09:12:55 <BSK> Pretty day and radar looks good for it staying that way. Clear & cold. :)
09:13:28 <Kevin L™🌵> A balmy 9°
09:15:30 <BSK> 9 can feel good if the sun is shining and there is no wind. :) (and one is properly dressed)
09:19:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Daisy has quite a plume.
09:20:44 <ynpvisitor75> Can you imagine what splendid would look like?
09:20:47 <BSK> I wish there was still a wind gauge, but based on Daisy's plume, appears to be no wind.
09:21:38 <ynpvisitor34> OF wind. Nothing at Daisy, and a bit other places.
09:24:06 <ynpvisitor75> The scientificals keep getting in the way :)
09:43:53 <The Messenger> Brrr
09:45:33 <ynpvisitor75> That message is a little late in coming :)
09:45:46 <The Messenger> I was slow
09:45:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Frozen?
09:46:22 <ynpvisitor5> Don't Shoot!
09:46:36 <The Messenger> Just more viscous
09:47:49 <The Messenger> Yesterday was Madame Curie's birthday
09:49:30 <Dave from B™> Darn, I wanted to shoot the Messenger!
09:49:52 <ynpvisitor75> More important, it was Giantday and Steamboatday
09:50:28 <The Messenger> It's OK, I'm also the deputy
09:50:41 <Dave from B™> So, 162 days until Opening Day...that is 20 SB eruptions
09:50:56 <Dave from B™> haha...nice
09:56:46 <ynpvisitor75> there was a rainbow
09:56:54 <ynpvisitor77> I really enjoy watching these when the boardwalk is empty. Thank you operators!
09:57:13 <The Messenger> I still see the rainbow, somewhere over there
09:57:21 <The Messenger> (not kidding)
09:57:34 <The Messenger> saw it late due to lag
09:57:46 <Kevin L™🌵> How come you are so good at predicting all the Steamboats you don;t go to Dave?
09:58:42 <ynpvisitor79> Technically, its a geyserbow since its not raining
09:59:07 <The Messenger> Mistbow - covers the general case
09:59:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Or a frostbow
09:59:22 <ynpvisitor79> PlumeBow
09:59:45 <ynpvisitor39> Interesting
09:59:54 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I don't know...scary isn't it
10:00:13 <Dave from B™> I knew my window should have started a little sooner yesterday
10:00:22 <Jeff in CT> I just got online, the 7:22 Lion seems to be a double interval from 4:54, I would have expected an event around 6:10 or so
10:01:47 <ynpvisitor76> The view was terrible at that time
10:01:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Snow munchkin did OK last knight.
10:04:34 <Dave from B™> So, next SB prediction: Wed 11/14 2130- Thurs 11/15 0930
10:04:41 <ynpvisitor76> Farewell my friends for I must go to steal warmth from the hot springs.
10:05:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Enjoy yourself!
10:05:09 <Dave from B™> We must be do for a change at SB....last 5 intervals have been in a 26 hour interval range
10:09:01 <ynpvisitor34> What died?
10:09:24 <ynpvisitor34> Happy Raven.
10:09:57 <Jeff in CT> Surprised there is only one, should be a coyote along soon
10:10:04 <Kevin L™🌵> A researcher is NOT going to be happy
10:10:23 <ynpvisitor35> I've had animals going through my pack at Fountain overlook platform, when I was down watching Fountain erupt.
10:10:36 <Jeff in CT> Dora lost her backpack
10:10:40 <ynpvisitor91> lol lol lol
10:10:44 <ynpvisitor35> I think Maureen said she saw a raven going through my stuff - unzipping pockets, tossing things about.
10:10:52 <The Messenger> OMG this is America
10:11:07 <The Messenger> America's Funniest Home Videos stuff after tossing the cellphone
10:11:08 <ynpvisitor39> Interesting
10:11:12 <ynpvisitor35> Grove Geyser
10:11:19 <ynpvisitor35> GHG-5
10:11:24 <ynpvisitor91> took off with something bright orange
10:11:43 <Kevin L™🌵> I know a chipmunk got HK's peanut M&Ms. Not a smart idea.
10:11:43 <ynpvisitor39> Interesting
10:11:58 <ynpvisitor35> Hmm. What happened here?
10:12:11 <ynpvisitor34> That is what they get for leaving unattended baggage. In some place it would be blown up.
10:12:33 <ynpvisitor35> But . . . but. . . the park is closed!
10:13:28 <BSK> Did a raven get into pack just now when I was on other screen for a minute?
10:13:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep
10:13:50 <ynpvisitor34> yup
10:13:58 <ynpvisitor39> Interesting
10:14:15 <Jeff in CT> That backpack is the Raven equivalent of Amazon
10:15:15 <ynpvisitor34> Unless the raven is named Kevin, then it would be lost in Arizona.
10:16:00 <ynpvisitor34> But they will loose it for free till Christmas
10:16:13 <ynpvisitor34> Rieverside?
10:17:04 <ynpvisitor34> Well, I am off to fix BH, enjoy.
10:17:09 <Kevin L™🌵> My daughter has the same problem in Rexburg. She ordered something. It shipped from Idaho Falls (20 miles away). It went to Salt Lake, back through Idaho Falls and on to Rexburg.
10:36:25 <ynpvisitor28> The view of Lake on the static is stunning this morning!
10:38:54 <Dave from B™> 28, it's beautiful
10:39:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Washburns are nice too.
10:42:02 <Jeff in CT> Schoolbus at Mammoth - chilly day for a field trip
10:42:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably picking up dependents for school in Gardiner.
10:43:19 <Jeff in CT> Look at the MHS Static
10:43:31 <Eric> Nope...that looks like a field trip
10:43:50 <Jeff in CT> Hopefully not a field slip
10:43:58 <Eric> teton valley schools
10:44:15 <Eric> Maybe a high school science class
10:44:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Maybe more researchers.
10:44:51 <Eric> nope...those are smaller kids
10:44:58 <Eric> and a lot of parents :-D
10:45:19 <Jeff in CT> On a recent visit to Yale Univ., I noticed that the grad students were getting younger and younger
10:46:01 <Jeff in CT> I just noticed LC ie, probably started a few minutes ago
10:46:07 <Dave from B™> Jeff, only the observers age is changing:)
10:46:25 <Jeff in CT> So true, Dave
10:48:32 <Eric> BTW, if anyone is looking for a new watch for activity tracking or backpacking, I highly recommend the garmin instinct!
10:48:52 <Eric> Or sitting on the BW timing geysers :-D
10:53:35 <Dave from B™> I do need to replace my watch that is so slow that it was 5 minutes off last week before I fixed it with the time change
10:55:05 <ynpvisitor...> My Timex Indiglo was cheap and has BIG numbers :)
10:55:42 <Kevin L™🌵> I have a Casio Databank
10:56:12 <Jeff in CT> Big numbers is the way to go, ™
10:57:16 <Kevin L™🌵> It helps if you can play Pacman on it.
11:04:58 <Eric> The garmin instinct has high contrast large black and white numbers
11:05:42 <Eric> It tracks your heart rate while working out and has about every sensor known to man built into it. Plus the battery lasts up to 14 days without a charge.
11:06:08 <Eric> Possible minuses, no touch screen, no color
11:06:52 <Eric> It's digital, but the watch face is always on.
11:07:41 <Eric> No pacman Kevin :-(
11:07:49 <ynpvisitor47> People
11:07:58 <ynpvisitor35> Researchers.
11:08:03 <Eric> researchers...they are everywhere this week!
11:08:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Those were bison in drag.
11:08:40 <Eric> Those looked like the guys doing the hydrothermalbiophysicsystuff
11:09:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Lion looks happy
11:09:38 <Eric> Yes, I was noticing that too kevin, but series ended almost 4 hours ago
11:10:00 <Kevin L™🌵> BH looks totally dead.
11:10:23 <Kevin L™🌵> What is a Roku TV Eric?
11:10:32 <Eric> I bet it went overnight in a snow storm.
11:10:55 <Eric> Roku is a box that delivers internet/tv apps to your tv
11:11:07 <Eric> They are cheap and nice ways to get streaming services
11:11:27 <Eric> They are similar to amazon's fire tv or googles chromecast
11:12:13 <Kevin L™🌵> I was looking for a new TV since my computer room TV died. They had a Roku TV but the remote only has about 3 buttons. I want something to pick up over the air broadcasts.
11:16:06 <Eric> Just make sure it has a tuner built into it and you should be fine.
11:16:28 <Dave from B™> Does anyone have the link to the NPS brochure that shows how many SB eruptions have occurred each year?
11:16:44 <Eric> I have a TIVO that I use for Over the Air broadcasts, but it requires and subscription or lifetime $$$ purchase to use.
11:19:13 <ynpvisitor5> Dave from B™, just look on GT?
11:19:49 <Dave from B™> 5, 27 eruptions in 1964 on GT. I believe I have heard 29 in 1964 so I'm trying to figure out what is right
11:20:05 <Kevin L™🌵> I have a small box that does recording Eric but the Tivo would be nice.
11:20:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Good BH splash
11:21:05 <Eric> The Tivo is nice because I don't have to worry about what the TV I use offers, as long as it has and hdmi input.
11:21:10 <Kevin L™🌵> I bet they have less for lunch than they thought they would have.
11:21:18 <ynpvisitor5> I think some are inferred in the comments Dave from B™
11:23:56 <Dave from B™> Thanks 5
11:25:45 <Kevin L™🌵> It used to be so much easier to buy a TV.
11:27:17 <ynpvisitor5> so what was that with the backpack - did a raven take off with a bag of doritos?
11:28:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Not sure what it got. Hoping it wasn't an instrument.
11:29:31 <Dave from B™> Maybe Mara's logbook?
11:36:33 <Dave from B™> Taylor and her market staff are busy today changing to our big holiday display of crab, lobster and shrimp
11:39:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds like another big season.
11:40:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I saw some farm raised fish from China in Cedar. That doesn't even sound good.
11:40:44 <Dave from B™> Must have been tilapia
11:41:08 <ynpvisitor56> All the best stuff comes from China
11:42:31 <Kevin L™🌵> It was a redish color
11:43:14 <ynpvisitor56> Google says 60% of all farm raised fish in the USa is from china
11:43:52 <ynpvisitor56> Including that bag of shrimp.
11:44:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Ugh
11:44:50 <BSK> I have never even tried tilapia because the one it is harvested has always sounded gross to me.
11:45:03 <BSK> *way it is harvested (raised, really)
11:45:20 <ynpvisitor56> Tilapia colored red and sold as salmon?
11:46:01 <Dave from B™> 56, Google is wrong
11:46:03 <ynpvisitor56> would not put it past tem with ll the other things they have done with people food, pet food, tooth paste, and kids toys made of lead.
11:46:40 <Eric> Well, google technically doesn't say anything about anything, however it does reference other sources.
11:48:07 <Eric> It's like people bad mouthing's a reference that is annotated. It's not perfect, but if it's saying things that aren't referenceable, then editors usually remove that kind of garbage pretty quickly.
11:51:05 <Dave from B™> I sell a lot of imported farmed products and only a few of them come from China
11:51:32 <Dave from B™> Most of the shrimp farmed in China stays in China because they have so many mouths to feed
11:51:59 <BSK> The irony of my love for raw oysters and thinking farmed tilapia sounds gross is not lost on me. But there ya have it. I don't even make sense to myself.
11:52:29 <Dave from B™> Katie, if you can find tilapia from South America, that is what we recommend.
11:52:44 <Kevin L™🌵> There is nothing better than those thick cod fillets.
11:53:06 <Dave from B™> All fresh tilapia that we sell comes from South America. 99% of frozen comes from China
11:53:33 <BSK> I don't very often have fish at home. My husband does 99.99% of the cooking at home (he loves to cook and is an awesome cook while I don't enjoy cooking and am only "capable.")
11:54:19 <Dave from B™> That sounds like my house but you don't want me cooking anything
11:54:23 <BSK> And my husband doesn't cook or eat anything with fins. He eats the water bugs (shellfish), but not anything with fins. So, my finned fish consumption is generally in restaurants.
11:55:17 <ynpvisitor13> you cook 99% Dave and you cannot cook?
11:55:49 <Dave from B™> I don't cook at all
11:55:50 <ynpvisitor56> Salmon Fillets do not have fins!
11:56:05 <Dave from B™> My wife is like having a p[ersonal chef at all. She is terrific
11:56:11 <Dave from B™> all = home
11:56:29 <ynpvisitor13> oh, your comment was confusing
11:56:59 <ynpvisitor13> that nice SB seismo signal is going to be off the page soon...
11:58:04 <ynpvisitor56> Wish all the plumbers in the orange vests would fix BH.
11:58:26 <ynpvisitor13> Did anyone check the overnight?
11:59:16 <ynpvisitor13> checked GT, looks like Joe did
11:59:32 <ynpvisitor56> I bet Dave watched the freezer cam replays.
12:03:52 <Dave from B™> DVR saves up to 12 weeks of video. I won't be looking until after the next inventory on 11/30
12:05:56 <ynpvisitor56> If I was loosing a significant amount of inventory, I would count the expensive stuff every day.
12:08:25 <Dave from B™> 56, I'm not going to spend 4 hours every day counting inventory. I don't think you realize how much inventory we have. It is well over 1,000,000
12:09:37 <Eric> You don't count each shrimp daily?
12:09:56 <Eric> :-D
12:18:45 <ynpvisitor56> I was suggesting to count the $500 boxes you said were going missing. Less time then looking at 30 days of footage from (how many, 8 cameras)?
12:19:15 <ynpvisitor56> But only a suggeston, as it is your cash.
12:23:52 <ynpvisitor56> Too cold for bees. Enjoy the larcenous raven.
12:35:02 <Dave from B™> Happy Birthday to Montana today.....129 years old
12:35:56 <Eric> Nice...someday it will grow up to be a big boy state :-D
12:36:40 <BSK> I like it High, Wide & Handsome (and sparsely populated, by comparison to others)
12:37:37 <Eric> ghg 17?
12:37:42 <Eric> gone now
12:38:04 <Kevin L™🌵> It will be invaded soon.
12:38:39 <Dave from B™> Kevin, it is already happening
12:39:34 <Dave from B™> I won't provide links but a big school vs school brawl Tuesday at lunch will be keeping my wife busy for weeks
12:40:01 <Kevin L™🌵> That is daily here.
12:41:36 <Dave from B™> Well, when 20 kids are beating up 1 kid and it is caught on multiple phones, the public is outraged this morning
12:42:10 <BSK> It's been in the news
12:42:53 <BSK> It IS still "news worthy" here.
12:43:34 <Kevin L™🌵> They should be. Too bad it is common here.
12:44:53 <Dave from B™> Time for something good to erupt. Have to go to the bank and pickup a cashiers check for my new used truck.
12:45:03 <Kevin L™🌵> When I went to the same school we would have our guns with us a lot. Even teachers would bring them and we would check each others out. On difference is we would never have pointed them at another person. If you were a can or a bottle, you were in trouble though.
12:45:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice Dave!
13:15:06 <Dave from B™> Yeah. It is sad to see so many troubled youth.
13:15:44 <BSK> Very much so
13:25:20 <ynpvisitor13> BH does not look very perky
13:25:32 <ynpvisitor13> has it been splashing at all?
13:25:37 <BSK> :bee: are tucked in - it's cold
13:25:41 <ynpvisitor13> oh, there is one
13:26:22 <ynpvisitor13> ha ha, BH can take the cold, the cold has only just begun
13:27:31 <BSK> yes, but it does become less active when it's cold. Frequency decreases in winter
13:27:48 <ynpvisitor13> is that true?
13:27:59 <ynpvisitor13> better tell that to BH after the 10 hr interval
13:29:11 <BSK>
13:29:48 <BSK> less frequent overall and more erratic - that doesn't mean it doesn't erupt and "erratic" can mean short intervals, too, but overall less frequent
13:30:35 <Dave from B™> Katie, I would tend to agree. It seems to slow in the winter
13:31:25 <ynpvisitor13> Looking briefly at the last year, I would say there was no true difference in winter of 2017-18
13:34:30 <ynpvisitor13> based on what is what I am asking? The stats do not show this
13:35:19 <ynpvisitor13> I wonder who wrote that write up? Cute they added BH is one of their favorite geysers, yet no name attached
13:35:44 <BSK> that link I posted has years' worth of data, but does not have the last decade.
13:36:16 <BSK> "Activity Recorded by Data Logger - by Ralph Taylor
13:38:30 <BSK> With the webcam, it may well have been more observable in the last decade. I do acknowledge that and concede that using stale sources may be skewing my knowledge.
13:45:05 <BSK> I exported data from geyser times as csv and parsed into a spreasheet. Just looking at Oct 1 - Dec 31 in 2017 (colder months), there were 127 eruptions in those three months.
13:46:08 <BSK> In the preceding warmer three months, there were 137 eruptions.
13:47:17 <BSK> So for those 2 three month periods, there were 8% fewer eruptions during the colder months - and that's including October, which isn't really cold. But just that little snapshot of data seems to support fewer eruptions during colder months.
13:50:24 <ynpvisitor46> people
13:52:39 <ynpvisitor44> Mara is near Grand
14:00:16 <ynpvisitor13> well that is a better way of looking at things than what I did. Thanks for your diligence
14:01:08 <ynpvisitor13> Grand should be soon
14:02:06 <BSK> I compared Oct-Mar and Apr-Sept and it was also 8%
14:02:46 <BSK> Then I compared Dec-Feb to Jun-Aug and it was 9.4%, so there is more variation (slightly) if comparing the 3 coldest months to the three warmest.
14:04:19 <BSK> I didn't check average and mean intervals. Maybe another day. I have a meeting in 30 minutes to get tutored on more FCC licensing stuff with GPS entries, so I better save what brain cells I have. ;)
14:06:25 <BSK> I have no idea how to factor margin of error for more unlogged eruptions during the winter when dark period is longer and therefore eruptions could be missed.
14:08:02 <ynpvisitor13> I thought Will fills in the missed times with logger times. Is that not happening?
14:08:07 <ynpvisitor13> and again, thank you
14:08:22 <ynpvisitor13> Grand over 6 hours
14:10:47 <Kevin L™🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
14:11:08 <ynpvisitor13> don't sleep now Kevin
14:11:51 <ynpvisitor13> There we go
14:12:29 <ynpvisitor13> Grand 1411
14:13:27 <ynpvisitor13> with some sunshine, though spikes are hard to see
14:13:57 <ynpvisitor13> there they are
14:14:37 <Kevin L™🌵> As long as I don't hit that blue button on the bottom
14:14:52 <ynpvisitor13> what does that do?
14:15:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Moves the cam left
14:16:32 <BSK> I hate when I mean to hit the pan and hit the tilt - that one is VERY unforgiving
14:16:47 <ynpvisitor13> streamers
14:16:55 <The Messenger> Does that mean you lose all your points?
14:17:19 <BSK> (zoom and tilt - those are the ones next to each other)
14:17:19 <Kevin L™🌵> You get to see pine needles instead of the geyser.
14:18:13 <ynpvisitor13> those are some fast bursts
14:18:17 <Kevin L™🌵> This one is easier than the old one.
14:19:34 <Kevin L™🌵> 8m
14:19:42 <The Messenger> :thumbsup:
14:20:14 <ynpvisitor13> now time to back out a bit
14:20:22 <ynpvisitor13> just in case
14:21:09 <ynpvisitor13> that was not a good wind shift
14:22:38 <The Messenger> I don't think it paused
14:22:50 <ynpvisitor13> me either
14:23:34 <ynpvisitor13> nice light for the eruption
14:23:49 <ynpvisitor13> tiny snowman hanging on
14:25:14 <ynpvisitor13> early OF, good move cam op
14:25:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Wham!
14:25:36 <Kevin L™🌵> That was a blue button shift/
14:25:49 <ynpvisitor13> only the tiny snowman to watch it
14:31:09 <Dave from B™> Kevin, based on key chain, it looks like my new used Isuzu is from Vegas
14:32:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Shouldn't have a lot of rust or salt damage then.
14:33:09 <Dave from B™> Exactly. It will need a block heater but that's no biggie
14:33:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't use a lot of block heaters down here.
14:35:15 <Kevin L™🌵> When I was in the Army there was a guy who ask if we used sand or salt on our roads. I told him mostly asphalt. I had no clue what he was talking about. He was from Michigan.
14:35:44 <Dave from B™> haha
14:36:08 <Kevin L™🌵> He was as surprised as I was.
14:49:44 <ynpvisitor> Hello
15:18:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I sure hope this is a double BH interval
15:21:54 <ynpvisitor66> Did you break it?
15:22:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave traded it in on a truck.
15:24:12 <Betty> Bah
15:25:30 <Kevin L™🌵> BH waited for you
15:25:32 <Betty> You seem to be all alone today.
15:25:52 <Betty> I‘m still on the train
15:26:12 <Kevin L™🌵> My puzzle of the day on my iPad today is Ramsau. One of my favorite places.
15:26:35 <Kevin L™🌵> BH looks tired so I wouldn't worry
15:26:44 <Betty> We had our Christmas party today
15:26:51 <Betty> Cool
15:27:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Pretzels and Christmas Beer?
15:27:56 <Betty> It will be time for sleep when I get home
15:29:00 <Dave from B™> Last grand I see on GT is 801. Is that right?
15:29:10 <Betty> No Christmas feeling at all! It’s half past eleven and still 51°F
15:29:34 <Betty> Hey Dave
15:29:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. Where were those temps when I was on guard duty?
15:30:09 <Betty> No pretzels and no Christmas beer
15:30:10 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
15:30:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Mine shows a 1411
15:30:50 <Betty> They were on holiday in Vegas, Kevin 😊
15:31:21 <Kevin L™🌵> 64° at 1430 here now.
15:32:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Low was 52°
15:32:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Big BH splash
15:35:23 <Dave from B™> You just entered that wise guy:)
15:35:43 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
15:36:04 <Betty> I see Giant went 2 min after I headed out yesterday, and 6 min there was steamboat 🧐
15:38:08 <Dave from B™> I thought it was my fault
15:38:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Check the replay when you get home Betty. Giant is nice.
15:39:59 <Betty> Will do
15:44:42 <Dave from B™> Since when did beggars start going business to business in an area of town besides downtown. This is ridiculous.
15:46:54 <Kevin L™🌵> We had three that worked the Spring Mountain Interchange in shifts. One would beg while the others were drinking under the bridge and then at night they would get in their Caddy and go home.
15:59:53 <Dave from B™> wow
16:06:09 <Dave from B™> Hi Graham
16:06:16 <GO F&M> GHG5
16:06:35 <GO F&M> hi Dave. you missed the fun yesterday
16:06:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Can you just make it GO BH?
16:07:26 <GO F&M> no, sorry .... trying for F&M. someone else is in charge of BH
16:08:31 <Dave from B™> Yeah. I had to leave so SB would go for you (and Giant)
16:09:31 <GO F&M> it was earlier than the last one ....... didnt lengthen like Bruce had speculated
16:09:31 <Dave from B™> Did you find out what 2 SB eruptions are missing from GT. Someone here alluded that a couple may be inferred but no date know. I haven't scoured GT looking for the answer
16:09:33 <LindaG1> I vote for Kevin to be in charge, do I have a motion to pass? 😉
16:10:04 <GO F&M> have to be specific about what he is in charge of :)
16:10:31 <LindaG1> Making Bee work
16:12:01 <Dave from B™> Kevin is retired. I'm not sure he wants to be in charge of anything
16:12:36 <LindaG1> I can identify with that
16:12:46 <Kevin L™🌵> I do good naps...
16:12:49 <Dave from B™> But we can always nominate him...especially since he seems he has fallen asleep
16:13:03 <Dave from B™> haha
16:13:21 <GO F&M> thats his plan to sleep so bH will erupt
16:14:16 <LindaG1> Last night i left the board for an hour, came back and giant had erupted, somthat seems to work
16:16:10 <BSK> Pretty subtle near sunset hues...
16:19:13 <GO F&M> no researchers around?
16:19:47 <BSK> They were around earlier.
16:24:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Minus something red.
16:29:15 <Dave from B™> Kevin, you can't shift our Isuzu into park. Have you ever seen that before? Why is that done that way?
16:30:02 <Kevin L™🌵> That can be a brake light switch issue. There should be a release button.
16:30:37 <Dave from B™> No, I mean there is no Park to shift it to
16:30:55 <Dave from B™> You have to leave it in Nuetral and use the emergency brake
16:30:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Oh. Never have seen that!
16:31:18 <Kevin L™🌵> I do assume we are talking an automatic.
16:31:26 <Eric> riverside
16:31:34 <Dave from B™> I'll ask my mechanic about that one. It is an automatic but it has air brakes
16:31:43 <Eric> Uhhh, you should always be able to put it into park
16:32:21 <Dave from B™> Eric, there is no park to put it into
16:32:26 <BSK> Yeah, cuz being forced to use a parking brake is just asking for a frozen parking brake
16:32:46 <Dave from B™> This is a job for google
16:32:48 <ynpvisitor13> There has to be park, right?
16:33:09 <ynpvisitor13> nice plume down basin
16:33:52 <Eric> I guess it makes it so you don't get torque lock on heavy loads
16:34:05 <ynpvisitor13> does Riverside get that steamy?
16:34:29 <GO F&M> i am surprised it isnt steamier
16:34:34 <Eric> The weight of the vehicle doesn't put pressure on the I guess nuetral plus parking break makes sense
16:34:44 <Eric> 24 degrees, I agree with graham
16:34:52 <Eric> It was steamier earlier
16:35:25 <ynpvisitor13> I see Eric put it in chat. Not on GT
16:35:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave, my kid says that is normal for a truck with an airbrake.
16:36:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Neutral and the airbrake.
16:36:06 <ynpvisitor13> Is it made for Montana winters?
16:36:06 <GO F&M> unng5
16:36:13 <Dave from B™> Thanks Kevin.
16:36:27 <ynpvisitor13> pretty time of day if it weren't getting dark
16:36:46 <GO F&M> Lion
16:37:01 <GO F&M> or not
16:38:04 <GO F&M> or maybe now
16:38:27 <GO F&M> yes
16:38:40 <Eric> another ini
16:39:11 <Dave from B™> I still don't know what it is an ini when water is erupting outti
16:39:11 <Eric> I have caught the ini 2 days in a row
16:39:28 <Eric> You sooo funny dave :-P
16:39:55 <Dave from B™> It's getting late and I still have 90 minutes to go
16:40:12 <Eric> Shot of whiskey :-D
16:40:15 <Eric> or two
16:40:33 <LindaG1> 🦁
16:40:38 <Eric> Oh ya, your daughter might fire you for drinking on the job :-P
16:40:40 <Dave from B™> No alcohol at work
16:40:47 <Dave from B™> She is long gone
16:41:03 <Eric> Good policy in a place with forklifts!
16:42:30 <Dave from B™> My staff seems to hit enough things when they are sober!
16:45:21 <Eric> Kevin been teaching your staff?
16:45:45 <Kevin L™🌵> He has rocks in the building?
16:46:04 <Dave from B™> haha...I was just going to say no rocks inside my bldg!
16:46:19 <Eric> Are you limited to rocks Kevin?
16:46:35 <Eric> BH looks ready to about another hour or two
16:46:43 <Kevin L™🌵> For the most part.
16:46:53 <Dave from B™> Kevin's wife is in charge of trees
16:47:05 <Eric> ahh, it's a tag team thing!
16:47:42 <Eric> I understand the videos of their children's RV racing now :-D
16:47:55 <Eric> It's genetics.
16:48:01 <Dave from B™> :D.
16:48:48 <Kevin L™🌵> My kid hits everything but then again he is driving a car with only 2 wheels.
16:48:49 <Dave from B™> Everytime I see an outhouse, I think of Kevin's son and his figure 8 race
16:49:34 <Kevin L™🌵> That was so funny the fake porta potty taking out the real one.
16:50:11 <Eric> grotto
16:51:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Feeding 🐓 brb
16:58:07 <Kevin L™🌵> No BH?
16:58:40 <Dave from B™> It's waiting for me to go downstairs in about 20 minutes
17:00:05 <Eric> I think around 1746
17:03:01 <Dave from B™> I'll try to speed it up. Heading downstairs. Have a great evening everyone!
17:03:14 <Dave from B™> That is a golf club?
17:03:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Hockey stick
17:03:39 <Kevin L™🌵> It is Knight time
17:03:57 <Dave from B™> gotcha. It looks like a few people have turned around at the west entrance today
17:06:36 <Eric> lot of steam/clouds from the left?
17:06:46 <Eric> Anyone have controls?
17:07:15 <Kevin L™🌵> It is on total wide
17:07:34 <Eric> guess those are just clouds moving through
17:08:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Castle is the far geyser left in view.
17:09:29 <GO F&M> Myriad group is going wild?
17:09:34 <Eric> I was thinking something huge in back sands area....but I highly doubt it
17:10:01 <Eric> It was just totally clear, then all of a sudden large clouds drifting in.
17:10:34 <BSK> there were low clouds like that earlier this afternoon, too.
17:11:57 <GO F&M> i think Dave needs to confiscate Erics liquor
17:12:43 <BSK> It's my Friday. He can take from Eric and give to me. :)
17:13:19 <GO F&M> Its my Thursday, i want some too
17:15:18 <ynpvisitor13> How cold will it be tomorrow in the basin?
17:16:05 <Kevin L™🌵> It was 9° this morning when I signed on.
17:16:19 <ynpvisitor13> I'm thinking below zero
17:16:33 <ynpvisitor13> did not warm up today
17:17:45 <Kevin L™🌵> I need to biuld a tent for my grapefruit tree. Too young to just protect with lights.
17:17:50 <BSK> It warmed up from 9 to 21 today. :)
17:17:54 <ynpvisitor87> Supposed to be a low of 5
17:18:11 <BSK> But if it stays clear, I wouldn't be surprised to see 0 tomorrow morning. Maybe subzero.
17:19:18 <Eric> So did the tower work get finished on hamilton?
17:19:26 <ynpvisitor13> Forecasts are often way off if it is clear out
17:19:27 <Eric> I have not heart anything
17:20:33 <ynpvisitor87> Hamilton....Washburn?
17:20:51 <Eric> woops...thanks :-D
17:20:54 <Eric> yes, washburn
17:21:11 <Eric> I have not "heard" anything
17:21:21 <Eric> Man, my brain is definitely some place else
17:21:34 <Eric> Maybe I need a shot of that whiskey now
17:21:52 <Eric> A little Lagavulin 16 year.
17:21:53 <Kevin L™🌵> I was thinking you may have had it already.
17:22:21 <Eric> No...sometimes my brain is 22 places at once and the whiskey calms it down a litte.
17:22:24 <Eric> little
17:22:40 <ynpvisitor87> Man I want what Eric’s drinking:)
17:25:24 <GO F&M> he can't even remember how much he has drunk
17:26:14 <GO F&M> SC?
17:26:55 <ynpvisitor87> He’s from Washington. You sure it’s a liquid?
17:27:18 <GO F&M> good point
17:27:34 <Eric> I hate the smell of smoked cannabis, so YES.
17:27:58 <Eric> Now edibles aren't too bad :-D
17:28:22 <GO F&M> bubblers
17:28:39 <ynpvisitor87> Maybe he has cookies
17:28:50 <Eric> Who doesn't like cookies?
17:28:55 <Eric> bulger
17:29:03 <Eric> maybe
17:33:31 <ynpvisitor87> BH must know I’m still here
17:35:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Depression?
17:38:52 <ynpvisitor87> You watching curling again?:)
17:39:39 <Kevin L™🌵> No, hockey. Curling would be 🥌
17:40:34 <Eric> Also, not time yet for BH...look for it after 17466
17:40:38 <Eric> 1746
17:48:00 <GO F&M> daisy
17:57:43 <GO F&M> lion
18:10:01 <GO F&M> can someone flag the 11/4 Daisy at 0118MDT please - the MST one is the correct one
18:13:13 <GO F&M> goodnight
18:14:17 <GO F&M> Castle?
18:16:22 <BSK> Added the second flag. And now I'm headed out. Have a good night, all.
18:16:41 <GO F&M> thanks
18:50:59 <LindaG1> OF ie
19:12:10 <LindaG1> Lion ie ?
19:13:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably so. Time fits.
19:13:43 <LindaG1> Didn't think anyone was out there.😁
19:13:56 <LindaG1> I thought I'd watch for bee
19:14:28 <Kevin L™🌵> I am about half here. In and out. Mostly watching the Knights.
19:14:57 <LindaG1> Yeah I'm watching netflix
20:08:57 <Kevin L™🌵> The ding in the OF seismo is a 6.8 east of Greenland.
20:16:29 <LindaG1> Wow
20:17:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Fun having all this information right at hand.
20:20:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand?
20:21:30 <Kevin L™🌵> It was a good Knight.
20:22:35 <LindaG1> Darn left for 2 minutes
20:23:13 <LindaG1> Looks like grand
20:24:03 <LindaG1> Darn BEE just doesn't want to do it.
20:24:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Needs starter fluid.
20:28:28 <LindaG1> 😊
20:29:23 <LindaG1> OF
20:36:06 <LindaG1> Ufo?
