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