04:26:25 <ynpvisitor3> Grotto looks huge this morning
04:34:24 <Dave from B™> You sure that is Grotto?
04:34:33 <Dave from B™> Morning joe
04:35:26 <ynpvisitor3> Hi Dave It could Be giant
04:37:00 <ynpvisitor3> be Giant, caps in wrong place
04:37:42 <Dave from B™> Early morning for the next 4 months will look like this. Hard to tell what's happening
04:39:09 <ynpvisitor3> Yes, it makes calling geysers difficult
04:40:58 <Dave from B™> With Bill's comments yesterday regarding Steamboat, it may go today
04:42:28 <ynpvisitor3> I've been watching the seismo :)
04:43:14 <ynpvisitor53> could be riverside or F&M ... looks further right than Giant and not big enough
04:48:40 <ynpvisitor53> OF 1712 on 10/14 is causing a 5 m interval on GT. Hopefully it can get cleaned up so we can see what the short intervals have been and how many have been as short as yetserdays 46min interval
04:52:18 <ynpvisitor88> how do I look at 10/14
04:59:52 <ynpvisitor88> I now see it it was entered by STS as a ns, GT should have removed it and put DaveM's as primary
05:04:04 <LindaG> Good morning
05:06:23 <Dave from B™> Morning Linda
05:07:03 <ynpvisitor88> Hi Linda
05:07:51 <ynpvisitor88> Dave do you remember how to look at more than 100 entrys on GT
05:08:38 <Dave from B™> I was just taught this...let me give it a try
05:09:22 <LindaG> OF ie
05:10:51 <Dave from B™> wait. 100 is easy. Go to your geyser and when you see the last 20 there is a button that you can change to 100
05:11:06 <ynpvisitor53> get the list of 100 on GT, then add &n=200 or however many you want at the end of the URL
05:11:23 <Dave from B™> Thanks 53
05:11:23 <ynpvisitor88> thanks
05:12:07 <ynpvisitor53> 1000 will get you back to Oct for OF and it used to show the shortest interval was 5min. now shows yesterdays 46 min as the shortest
05:12:48 <ynpvisitor53> i suspect it didnt merge the entries as they were 5min apart. It also doesnt merge when you edit an entry.
05:17:10 <ynpvisitor88> I flagged it also it is now gone
05:19:17 <Dave from B™> 46 is the shortest in the last 10000
05:19:29 <ynpvisitor88> or should be
05:21:35 <Dave from B™> 46 is the shortest in the last 25000
05:25:07 <ynpvisitor53> whats the date for that Dave?
05:25:18 <ynpvisitor53> is it the calendar year?
05:26:38 <Dave from B™> 25000 goes back to March 2014
05:27:34 <Dave from B™> I think that is the max GT will let me choose
05:44:03 <ynpvisitor53> cool, so it was the shortest recorded interval in over 4 years
05:47:07 <Dave from B™> If not longer
05:47:12 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin
05:50:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning Dave.
05:54:08 <Dave from B™> So, does anyone else see an issue with not being able to access OF info older than 2014 in GT?
05:54:12 <ynpvisitor53> SC on static
05:54:35 <ynpvisitor53> I think you can "Retrieve" it
05:54:52 <Dave from B™> But does it show intervals?
05:55:02 <ynpvisitor53> Nope :(
05:57:36 <Dave from B™> GT Archives has all entered eruptions. Someone with research expertise will have to search back further
06:01:43 <ynpvisitor53> 4 years or more is good enough for me :)
06:03:46 <Dave from B™> Wouldn't you want to know if it is the shortest in recorded history?
06:08:14 <ynpvisitor53> I assume it's not :)
06:11:34 <ynpvisitor> Is dragon geyser a geyser or spring?
06:24:51 <ynpvisitor33> Cone Walker?
06:27:51 <ynpvisitor33> Nevermind maybe a crow hard to tell n this fog.
06:28:35 <ynpvisitor42> Researchers out there, saw them before. Can't see geysers but we can see people.
06:29:44 <Jimbo Radon> Ah, the loveliness of early winter in Yellowstone
06:30:00 <ynpvisitor33> Hope they are careful. do not step in a spring in the fog.
06:30:10 <Jimbo Radon> Which isn't really fair because the mountain views are great
06:32:49 <ynpvisitor5> I think you can go farther back
06:33:16 <ynpvisitor5> oops late comment sorry
06:34:27 <ynpvisitor5> Dave from B™, recorded history is different from "history on GT"
06:40:02 <Dave from B™> 5, sorry left out recorded GT history
06:40:24 <Dave from B™> You haven't put every singe recorded OF in GT by now?:)
06:42:59 <Dave from B™> With some rough calculation, there has been over 800,000 eruptions of OF since it was named in 1870
06:44:46 <Eric> Morning...I am ready for an early BH :-D
06:45:21 <Eric> OF
06:47:19 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric.Will OF be okay?
06:47:29 <ynpvisitor72> Good morning Eric
06:47:31 <Jimbo Radon> So when (about) will OF's 1,000,000 eruption be?
06:49:10 <ynpvisitor53> its already happened if there have been 800,000 since 1870 ... would have been active before then
06:50:09 <Jimbo Radon> Yes, that's true, but I was basing it on Dave's statement
06:59:26 <ynpvisitor18> as the fog clears
06:59:48 <ynpvisitor18> sounds like a soap opera
07:00:03 <Steph> I hope those researchers have on 15 layers of clothing
07:01:49 <Dave from B™> Shadows in the mist
07:02:30 <ynpvisitor18> another soap opera
07:02:52 <Dave from B™> Jimbo, I made my calculation on their being 25000 eruptions every 4.5 years like the last 4.5 years. The intervals were shorter before so it may have already happened
07:03:09 <ynpvisitor18> "Dark shadows"
07:03:58 <Dave from B™> Olaf seems shorter today
07:05:24 <Jimbo Radon> He's ablating
07:08:37 <Rice> There was a comment early, that Bill was talking about Steamboat, what was he saying?
07:12:08 <ynpvisitor18> 0:56:50 ‹Bill› Just got back from Steamboat. It's quite active. 10:57:08 ‹Dave from B™› Any verticals from North? 10:57:11 ‹Kevin L™😎› Bet it is fun in the cold. Very steamy? 10:57:35 ‹Bill› yes to all of those lol 10:57:49 ‹Bill› most were around 20-30ft, but there was a couple 50ft i'd say.
07:13:20 <Steph> Yay!!
07:18:12 <Dave from B™> I think my prediction window is too late based on Bill's comments
07:20:38 <Eric> steamboat average over last 3 puts the next eruption tomorrow morning around 9
07:21:02 <Eric> But it's been trending possibly overnight tonight
07:21:14 <Dave from B™> My window was tomorrow 0100-1300 but Bill's comments make me think earlier
07:21:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Something downbasin. Riverside?
07:21:42 <Eric> grotto I thinkk
07:22:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably so. Hard to tell in the steam.
07:22:27 <Eric> way passed riverside riverside arouund 13:30
07:23:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Bubblers
07:32:07 <BSK> Good morning
07:32:13 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
07:32:51 <ynpvisitor5> what does TSB say for the shortest /longest OF?
07:36:44 <ynpvisitor18> playing wack-a-mole with BH :)
07:37:28 <ynpvisitor18> whack-a-mole*
07:39:58 <Eric> I see the snow tower is still erect
07:40:20 <Eric> Those kids get ++ for engineering :-D
07:43:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I wonder if they know it has been the star on the OF cam.
07:43:58 <ynpvisitor18> Looks like they have a barrel of soap for BH :)
07:44:00 <BSK> I posted on the Yellowstone Insiders Hub on Facebook wondering the same thing a few days ago!
07:45:33 <ynpvisitor42> BSK, I looked at the stream for yesterday and you were right that eruption was definitelyncloser to the sign. Oh well, no idea what hit was.
07:46:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Been having a fun time with my power tools. Bandsaw broke Monday, drill press yesterday. Both Craftsman. Found the drive belt on Sears parts direct and it listed it as "in stock". Clicked on the page to order it and it says "The manufacturer no longer makes this part and there's no substitute part". Go figure.
07:46:59 <ynpvisitor46> closer to what sign? where in the stream?
07:47:48 <ynpvisitor1> Hang in there Snowboy, I'll be back for your closeup Sunday evening. Don't go sublimating on me.
07:48:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Lot of steam at BH now
07:48:45 <LindaG> Yesterday at around 9:11 there was a plume that I thought was end of lion but it wasn't, but it wasn't goggles either. The gosa srt
07:49:37 <LindaG> The GOSA daylight stream
07:50:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I would bet there is an Indy in there somewhere.
07:52:16 <Steph> I wonder about Grand too after all that steam
07:52:59 <Eric> Thanks for the txt
07:53:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Someone thinks it is Indy
07:53:19 <Emily> hi
07:53:23 <ynpvisitor46> looks like North Goggle to me
07:53:45 <ynpvisitor29> It had cleared so nicely!
07:54:13 <Dave from B™> where's indy?
07:54:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Eric fogged it up
07:55:11 <Eric> Kids, get off my geyserite ::-P
07:55:21 <ynpvisitor18> that was a NG intermediate
07:56:07 <Eric> clearing slightly
07:56:14 <ynpvisitor18> yesterday around 0911
07:56:36 <ynpvisitor106> The snow person was built at the right time Eric. Closing day, so no one to knock it over or disturb it and nice freezing nights to keep it around.
07:56:43 <LindaG> Thanks for looking at it, I had never seen it like that, so I was very curious what it was. Good to know.
07:58:35 <Emily> yup
07:58:37 <Emily> indee
08:00:27 <Eric> Someone should log BHI...whoever did the txt
08:00:36 <ynpvisitor18> It i all yours Kevin
08:00:42 <Kevin L™🌵> OK
08:00:55 <ynpvisitor66> What am I seeing in the foreground there to the left?
08:01:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Research equipment
08:01:25 <Eric> 55 gallon drum of ___________
08:01:34 <Eric> (Noun)
08:01:49 <ynpvisitor46> chem trail compound
08:01:50 <Eric> Mad Libs, chat style :-D
08:02:20 <Dave from B™> salmon heads
08:02:38 <Steph> Hot water
08:03:14 <Jimbo Radon> Broward County election ballots
08:03:22 <Eric> hahahaha
08:03:26 <Dave from B™> hahaha
08:03:27 <sparekitty> funny
08:03:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Jimmy Hoffa
08:03:37 <Eric> Jimbo wins :-D
08:03:47 <ynpvisitor> Interesting
08:04:32 <Dave from B™> Maybe we can tell Mary Greely that they are building a new geyser
08:05:21 <Eric> My guess is it's just covering the control box for all of the sonographs or whatever the measuring devices they are using out there.
08:05:27 <ynpvisitor46> they've been nervous about rising pressures so they've installed a pressure relief valve and covered it with a blue upturned trash can
08:06:23 <Eric> That didn't work so well in the biscuit basin parking lot :-P
08:06:45 <Eric> BH
08:07:43 <Eric> Again, light wind and nice vertical
08:08:01 <ynpvisitor29> Fog lifted just in time.
08:08:23 <ynpvisitor66> Much better show than I expected
08:08:47 <ynpvisitor71> delay is nice.
08:09:28 <ynpvisitor71> Even GT is delayed. I saw the post for BH and the time was still over 22 hours.
08:09:32 <Eric> BH is working on making a nice coating of the BW for an extra slippery traversal.
08:10:31 <Watching> That didn’t work how I wanted it to
08:10:53 <ynpvisitor71> That is one of the blue barrels converted to a Raven trap. Baited with a backpack.
08:11:11 <Eric> Any more unusual intervals for OF in the last 24h, after the 46m one?
08:11:13 <Kevin L™🌵> This was a good BH. All it needed was a rainbow.
08:11:51 <ynpvisitor71> The white sticker says CAUTION Mad Raven Inside.
08:12:00 <Dave from B™> 71, I like it
08:12:44 <Dave from B™> Eric, that is the shortest in the last 25000 eruptions in GT dating back to Mar 2014. I couldn't look back any further
08:13:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I have a feeling that all that steam just before BH was probably Grand.
08:13:11 <Dave from B™> That was the last OF short
08:13:49 <Dave from B™> Kevin ,that would make sense
08:13:53 <ynpvisitor71> well off to other thngs. Enjoy the steam.
08:14:03 <Casey> Wow. I missed conversation on the 46m? Even after a short that is crazy.
08:14:54 <Kevin L™🌵> The really odd thing is the one before it was almost 2h
08:15:00 <ynpvisitor106> That is a tall BH
08:15:41 <Casey> So, I put in my notice at work yesterday. I'm going to finish out the year working from home but will be back to doing freelance start of the year. No excuses to not be on here anymore.
08:16:13 <Kevin L™🌵> That sounds fun.
08:16:25 <ynpvisitor106> So glad it waited for better viewing!
08:16:41 <Casey> A lot more fun than what I've been putting up with for sure.
08:16:43 <Dave from B™> Casey, what kind of work do you do?
08:17:04 <Casey> Web and (low-level) mobile app development
08:19:35 <ynpvisitor106> No OF steam to obscure it. Very nice Bee!
08:22:06 <ynpvisitor106> I must be on a crazy delay.
08:22:45 <Kevin L™🌵> 1018 OF is just ending
08:22:52 <Casey> ynpvisitor106, Yes you are. Glad you enjoyed it. Kind of made me jealous that you were still watching it and I wasn't.
08:28:35 <Casey> Best seat in the house
08:30:10 <LindaG> He looks like he's commanding the elements
08:32:46 <Dave from B™> You trying to get on Jimbo's good side....he's always talking about the elements
08:39:50 <LindaG> Olaf is in cohoots with Jimbo?
08:40:39 <LindaG> 😉
08:47:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Daisy
08:55:35 <Eric> Anyone know the history of the Niland, CA thermal area? Has there ever been a geyser there?
09:14:30 <Dave from B™> Those researchers have things everywhere
09:15:45 <ynpvisitor46> yard sale!
09:16:15 <Dave from B™> Those words make me think of Toy Story
09:26:16 <Eric> We really should have grand any moment
09:26:19 <Eric> F&M
09:26:30 <Eric> or riverside :-P
09:27:02 <Eric> timing is off for riverside
09:27:07 <Eric> Maybe Arty?
09:28:01 <Eric> well, 11:26:16 was the start, whatever it is
09:28:38 <Dave from B™> Less than 5 hours for SB to reach the 7 day mark
09:28:43 <Eric> too short to be riverside too
09:29:49 <Dave from B™> too short for Arty and F&M as well then?
09:29:59 <Eric> ohh, there it is again
09:30:01 <Casey> It's still going. A short triple-interval would be possible for Riverside.
09:30:04 <Eric> not as strong
09:30:12 <Casey> 2-burst Riverside?
09:30:14 <Casey> jk
09:30:33 <Eric> Yes, I think it must be that Casey
09:31:17 <Eric> But I think all 3 would have had to be under 6h to make that possible
09:32:53 <Casey> November 3 had a 16h27m "interval" on GT. That's the only evidence I'm going by. The 18 hour triple seems to be the sweet spot.
09:33:39 <Casey> Cone walker
09:33:47 <Casey> Or a bear walking upright
09:33:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Researcher
09:34:01 <Casey> I suspect so
09:34:28 <LindaG> Isn't that a movie? The conewalkers
09:34:39 <Betty> morning all
09:34:48 <Casey> Hi Betty
09:34:49 <LindaG> Morning Betty
09:34:54 <Betty> I think it is Coneheads
09:35:22 <Betty> hi Casey! It´s been a while! How ya doin?? :-)
09:35:30 <Betty> hi Linda
09:37:44 <Casey> Betty, I'm doing well. I'll be around a lot more. I'm leaving my current job and will be back to working from home.
09:44:08 <Betty> ah, ok
10:00:47 <Dave from B™> So, a drive onto an onramp on I-90 to go to grab a sandwich and I see an abandoned shopping cart. My mind is drawing all sorts of pictures
10:31:20 <ynpvisitor2> Looks like authorized conewalkers
10:31:52 <Kevin L™🌵> They are researchers
10:38:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum
10:38:51 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:38:52 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:38:52 <Kevin L™🌵> .
10:39:20 <Eric> nice
10:39:21 <ynpvisitor46> I wonder if the short OF yesterday was because of the researchers thumping the ground like they said in the FB live video
10:39:37 <Eric> good question 46
10:39:56 <Betty> good catch, Kevin
10:40:04 <ynpvisitor46> unlikely but also a highly unusual occurence so a major coinky dink
10:40:13 <Eric> totally agree
10:40:35 <ynpvisitor46> also a moment for sheer panic for them if that is what actually happened and they realized it
10:41:16 <Eric> Well, I think they must have noticed as they need to time their field research around OF eruptions.
10:41:40 <ynpvisitor46> destroying OF would top the story of the grad student cutting down the world's oldest tree to get their instrument back
10:42:48 <Dave from B™> How did they thump the ground?
10:42:52 <Eric> Well, I hope it would take more than a micro thumper to kill OF...considering it gets thumped continuously from vehicle traffic vibrations.
10:43:31 <Eric> I wonder if YFT is picking up their thumpers?
10:44:08 <Eric> is fishynp at the UGB this week?
10:46:06 <ynpvisitor17> 40 degrees, that is warm
10:46:15 <ynpvisitor17> I hope snow person makes it
10:47:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Dav should make an ice run for Olaf.
10:49:04 <LindaG> Maybe a researcher will take pity on the little guy
10:50:48 <BSK> LindaG - I was thinking the last thing they should do during their permit period is re-inforce Olaf. But we need more snow/ice! He gets direct sun much of the day. Poor Olaf.
10:51:26 <Kevin L™🌵> They could put a bucket over him and some ice.
10:51:53 <Dave from B™> I say put Olaf out of his misery...Make him go swimming in OF pool:)
10:55:28 <ynpvisitor37> None of my weather apps say it is 40 there
10:55:49 <ynpvisitor37> That temp sensor must be in direct sun right now
10:56:24 <BSK> Pool Olaf is in direct sun right now, too.
10:56:35 <ynpvisitor37> I say let Olaf live out his natural life!
10:57:05 <BSK> I suppose we have to let nature take its course and just observe.
10:58:56 <Dave from B™> C'mon guys he is shriveling away to nothing...feel compassion for Olaf!:)
10:59:39 <LindaG> Some day he'll be just a puddle. 😮
11:01:04 <ynpvisitor67> Poor Olaf:(
11:01:44 <Dave from B™> Is Mara still around? Maybe she can save Olaf
11:02:24 <Kevin L™🌵> We need a Go Fund Me for Olaf.
11:02:56 <LindaG> Lol, good one kevin
11:04:20 <Dave from B™> That scares me. Then there will be more. Pretty soon they will take over the bw
11:06:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Tour buses of Olafs from Germany
11:06:43 <Dave from B™> :D
11:06:56 <Betty> Hä??
11:08:34 <Dave from B™> I couldn't believe there were still tour buses going thru YNP at the end of October
11:08:59 <Betty> must have been C-tours
11:09:59 <Dave from B™> Kitt had told me they scheduled there times at Norris during the summer for late afternoon early evening to avoid a closed parking lot. They were still using that schedule in October
11:10:20 <Betty> wow
11:13:27 <ynpvisitor000> They also schedule those times to avoid there being any rangers there
11:13:43 <ynpvisitor000> Every day people were stomping all over Ledge/Black Growler
11:13:51 <ynpvisitor000> Sorry all evening
11:13:51 <Dave from B™> I don't believe that
11:14:04 <Betty> I do!
11:14:20 <Dave from B™> wow
11:15:00 <Dave from B™> In 5 years there will be many more railings to try to reduce off trail travel
11:20:21 <Steph> When we were in Mammoth in May we saw someone jump over the railing at Palette Springs, sink in up to his ankles, and take a pic. I was too slow with my phone, and my kids had my camera, so I didn't take a pic. We reported him though.
11:21:27 <Steph> He left big old white footprints all over the boardwalk. And worse, big old holes in the terrace. I just don't get people sometimes.
11:22:23 <ynpvisitor17> temp down to 39, sun must be off the temp gauge
11:22:25 <ynpvisitor17> OF
11:25:04 <Dave from B™> Steph, a LOT of people don't respect much these days
11:25:34 <Eric> I believe it...I saw CTour guests stomping all over the F&M platform while their tour operator was off smoking along the trail!
11:25:38 <ynpvisitor17> This fall, I saw as much trespass from white folks as asians
11:25:40 <Betty> sadly soooo true Dave :-(
11:26:13 <Betty> yup, not only asians
11:26:16 <ynpvisitor17> October is a bad month for entitled jerks in the park
11:26:39 <Steph> It's so sad.
11:26:42 <ynpvisitor17> often they would justify it saying no one is around...
11:26:43 <Dave from B™> I do know there are new tour bus regs coming late next year. I'll be curious to see what changes are made
11:27:14 <Eric> I hope new super puts the smack down on CTour!
11:27:30 <Steph> Daisy
11:28:00 <Eric> Off to go pick up the MIL...back in a while.
11:28:36 <Dave from B™> So, CTour is the worst of the tour groups?
11:32:40 <Betty> I heard they meet at a parking lot and change the fee pass from a bus that is leaving the park to safe the fee
11:33:11 <Dave from B™> wow....sounds like some people should be jail
11:33:52 <Betty> buses almost look alike so noone notices really
11:34:31 <ynpvisitor17> you mean a parking lot outside the park?
11:34:34 <Betty> really notices... bad English :-p
11:34:47 <ynpvisitor17> if they are already inside, haven't they paid their fees?
11:35:10 <Betty> they stay mostly in West
11:35:34 <ynpvisitor17> I would think the West gate folks look very carefully at bus passes
11:36:20 <Dave from B™> But if one bus is leaving the area and a new one of the same company arrives how can they tell?
11:37:10 <ynpvisitor17> I would have to ask a gate person how they check them
11:37:21 <ynpvisitor17> are bus passes good for more than one day?
11:38:13 <Betty> I heard a tour guide of an american company grumbled about those practise
11:39:42 <Dave from B™> I would charge a tour bus every time they enter the park
11:40:47 <ynpvisitor17> me too, Dave.
11:41:11 <ynpvisitor17> I am still wondering if they include stats from traffic on 191 on the total visitation you know Dave?
11:41:32 <ynpvisitor17> they list them in their total count on the stats page. Still no October stats listed for 2018
11:42:43 <Dave from B™> I assumed they didn't but I don't know for sure
11:44:14 <ynpvisitor17> that would be crazy. Most 191 travelers are just passing through, not park visitors
11:55:34 <Betty> time for sleep. Night all
11:56:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight
11:58:00 <Dave from B™> Nite Betty
12:09:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand ie
12:09:36 <Dave from B™> That's a short double interval
12:09:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Stupid Win 10 is doing updates this afternoon and my computer keeps locking up.
12:13:31 <Steph> Was that Bulger ie too? Just out of screen left forward?
12:17:51 <Dave from B™> Sorry, Steph....I was afk
12:18:26 <Dave from B™> Spasmodic is erupting in that last zoom
12:18:40 <Steph> Ohhhhh! Thank you!
12:19:08 <Steph> It's hard for me to judge sometimes even with the photo and the GT map.
12:19:36 <Dave from B™> I enlarged it to full on my 34" screen and then it is easy to tell:)
12:20:15 <Steph> Ooo! You got it working then, the A thing and the B thing.
12:21:20 <Dave from B™> I did.
12:21:56 <Dave from B™> I was trying to jam a HDMI cable into a display port....close but not the same connection
12:22:29 <Kevin L™🌵> You put the lime in the coconut....
12:22:31 <Steph> I'm glad you got it!
12:24:12 <Dave from B™> It was mostly for our secutiry cameras but there is always room for the OF cam
12:37:44 <Kevin L™🌵> You monitor OF on your security monitor?
12:38:45 <Dave from B™> Yes, you have to keep an eye on's a sneaky geyser
12:40:12 <ynpvisitor17> 10 hr 47 m for a double wonder I missed it
12:40:22 <ynpvisitor17> that is short
12:40:25 <Dave from B™> I now...that's short
12:40:28 <Dave from B™> know*
12:40:58 <Kevin L™🌵> I think it probably went around 0950 this morning.
12:41:03 <ynpvisitor17> I popped back in thinking I was early for Grand...the best laid plans...
12:41:25 <ynpvisitor17> Kevin, that would be under 5 hours
12:41:49 <ynpvisitor17> we must have seen Vent steam then
12:42:15 <ynpvisitor17> I'm guessing it was not under 5 hours
12:42:33 <Dave from B™> Oct 30 had 2 intervals at 1047
12:42:58 <Kevin L™🌵> It fogged the entire downbasin and part of Geyser Hill whatever it was. I know it did erupt between 1000 and 1408
12:43:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Didn't
12:43:21 <ynpvisitor17> ha, that would have been a LONG eruption
12:44:40 <Steph> It really did fog everything. I've never seen that before. Plus it was like seven degrees.
12:45:21 <Dave from B™> Steph, it was -10 Monday morning
12:45:27 <ynpvisitor17> might not have come from Grand though. Fog is a weird thing. The temp could have been just right
12:46:07 <Steph> Oh, well whatever was this morning while we were trying to see Indy was foggy.
12:46:26 <ynpvisitor17> it was, we were so lucky it cleared for us to see that nice BH
12:47:09 <Kevin L™🌵> The big fog lasted about 15m
12:47:09 <Steph> Exactly! I've never seen the whole camera area covered like that.
12:47:20 <ynpvisitor17> it happens
12:47:30 <ynpvisitor17> many of us have seen it many times
12:47:53 <Steph> Well, it's true, I'm a noob.
12:48:24 <ynpvisitor17> mark the date, they have E times, we just don't have access now
12:48:44 <ynpvisitor17> an under 5 hour Grand would be something. Who know though?, with 46 min OF
12:49:23 <Kevin L™🌵> It will be interesting to check it.
12:50:18 <Dave from B™> 9 minutes is the shortest Grand interval in GT of the 22,393 entered
12:52:11 <Dave from B™> I wonder if that is an error
12:52:55 <Kevin L™🌵> You think?
12:53:14 <ynpvisitor17> I vote yes, error
12:53:53 <ynpvisitor17> was one of them ie Dave?
12:54:05 <Dave from B™> How in the world would a person find that entry without going thru 22,393 entries?
12:54:23 <ynpvisitor17> oh, I thought you had located it
12:54:35 <ynpvisitor17> a job for Graham
12:54:47 <Dave from B™> Does he know a shortcut?
12:55:02 <ynpvisitor17> not sure, he found that OF one he wanted flagged
12:55:27 <Dave from B™> My wife is up to her eyeballs in work tonight so maybe I will take a peek
12:56:53 <Dave from B™> I somewhat remember checking short Grand intervals during the interval shortening of 5-7 years ago and 4:15 area comes to mind as the shortest
12:58:57 <Dave from B™> gazers and their vehicles have not fared well this year. Did you hear about cb?
13:02:18 <ynpvisitor95> Heard about Oat but not cb...
13:02:30 <ynpvisitor95> Pat
13:04:02 <Dave from B™> She woke up to a knock on her door. Someone had "tapped" her parked car. Totaled the imp[aired drivers car who was a corrections officer. He is not on the other side of the jail bars
13:04:13 <Dave from B™> now*
13:04:36 <Dave from B™> cb's car faired better but did sustain damage
13:04:45 <ynpvisitor95> Glad cb wasn’t injured!
13:05:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Corrections officer behind bars. Bet he learns something!
13:05:35 <Dave from B™> She was asleep in her house.
13:14:25 <Eric> You should be able to chart the grand intervals and see the 9m one pretty easily I assume
13:15:04 <Dave from B™> I'll try that this evening
13:15:22 <Dave from B™> Thanks're over your hangover so soon?:)
13:16:01 <Eric> It took me until yesterday to recover from Saturday night :-D
13:16:56 <Eric> went to a benefit dinner, 7 courses, with a paired craft beer and unique whiskey at each course.
13:17:19 <Dave from B™> haha. My wife and I gave up drinking Mon thru Thur 2 weeks ago. It is amazing how much better I'm sleeping
13:17:32 <Dave from B™> and whiskey
13:19:59 <Dave from B™> It looks like I may be flying in on Nov 30 to pickup Becca's car and bring it home
13:22:32 <Eric> If you don't have plans on Friday me and we can grab some dinner
13:22:45 <Eric> I think I am around that night
13:23:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Beer & Whiskey?
13:23:09 <Eric> I might even be able to give you a lift from airport to school
13:23:23 <Eric> was a double whammy at every course
13:23:52 <Eric> Had many american whiskeys, a scotch and a japanese whiskey
13:24:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I would never have made that one!
13:24:22 <Dave from B™> Eric, I will keep that in mind. I'm booking my ticket tonight. Would be great to get together.
13:24:31 <Eric> I really like the japanese one...tasted just like a good scotch.
13:25:03 <Eric> BTW, I cannot get the dang analysis/charting to work on GT for all the grand intervals :-(
13:25:15 <Eric> The query is taking too long so the server is killing it.
13:26:03 <Dave from B™> guess is an E entry and an observed ie entry occurred for one eruption
13:43:44 <Dave from B™> Time to head home and get some chores done. Have a great evening everyone!
13:44:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight Dave
13:44:20 <BSK> G'night, Dave.
13:44:48 <ynpvisitor67> NIGHT dAVE
13:45:03 <Kevin L™🌵> 67 has a Dave keyboard.
13:55:59 <LindaG> I guess no SB today
14:01:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Not one we can see anyway.
14:02:22 <LindaG> True
14:05:34 <Kevin L™🌵> I did leave Aurum and Lion for you.
14:05:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Doggies!
14:11:34 <LindaG> ??
14:11:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Bison
14:12:21 <LindaG> Aurum and lion?
14:12:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Oops. Meant Castle & Lion.
14:14:32 <ynpvisitor3> DAISY
14:23:16 <ynpvisitor3> Dont think that was a castle Ie at 1613 just some steam
14:25:58 <LindaG> Got some steam behind the trees
14:27:46 <LindaG> F&M?
14:28:36 <ynpvisitor3> No, grotto area
14:29:07 <ynpvisitor3> wind blowen to the right
14:29:22 <LindaG> Ok
14:31:33 <LindaG> Have a good night all
14:39:54 <sparekitty> OF ie
15:01:43 <Kevin L™🌵> As the sun sets slowly in the west we bid Olaf a fond farewell
15:02:16 <sparekitty> bye Olaf!
15:03:36 <BSK> Pretty color
15:05:54 <ynpvisitor64> Little Olaf happens to be a sad little plastic walkway sign:( :(I really thought we were cheering on a tiny little, resilient snowman/snowwoman, however this is not to be.....not so to be! We will have another before we know it :)
15:09:36 <ynpvisitor1160> Wolf
15:10:20 <ynpvisitor17> the snowman was not really a snowman?
15:10:30 <ynpvisitor17> Lion before dark
15:11:55 <ynpvisitor17> very nice
15:12:03 <ynpvisitor17> is this the ini?
15:12:04 <ynpvisitor64> I love Lion:lion:
15:12:22 <ynpvisitor17> 64, Olaf wasn't really a snowman?
15:12:45 <ynpvisitor17> wow, so nice.
15:13:03 <BSK> What a wonderful last light treat
15:13:34 <ynpvisitor17> limping coyote
15:13:47 <ynpvisitor17> ooh, let's stay with the geyser....
15:14:11 <ynpvisitor17> what about Lion?
15:14:27 <ynpvisitor17> oh well, it was nice
15:15:11 <ynpvisitor17> no coyote, no Lion
15:15:54 <ynpvisitor17> bye Lion, it was nice while it lasted
15:16:08 <ynpvisitor17> going to be over soon
15:16:45 <ynpvisitor17> that was tough
15:23:25 <ynpvisitor64> Sorry about the cam ......looked like a coyote :( , and I really do believe that Olaf is plastic - but we can believe anything we want- right??
15:39:53 <Kevin L™🌵> He self identifies as plastic.
15:40:58 <ynpvisitor76> Kevin...LOL:lol:
15:41:30 <ynpvisitor76> I can respect that! ;)
16:07:22 <ynpvisitor76> OF 1806
16:19:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Gets dark quick now.
16:21:01 <ynpvisitor76> Yep...sure does, already dark's 2020!
16:54:55 <kcmule> daisy ie
17:05:54 <ynpvisitor105> all is quiet on the seismo front
17:23:54 <ynpvisitor26> castle ie?
17:49:51 <ynpvisitor102> OF
18:01:09 <ynpvisitor39> Grand?
18:01:24 <ynpvisitor102> yup
18:02:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Still under 6h
18:07:03 <ynpvisitor39> Beehive
18:08:02 <ynpvisitor102> Surprise!
18:09:54 <ynpvisitor72> That's why we watch, for the surprises. Yay!
18:10:46 <ynpvisitor102> That's got to be the shortest interval in a long while.
18:11:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Keeps you guessing.
18:11:56 <ynpvisitor13> Short interval
18:12:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I never saw an Indy
18:12:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Really wasn't watching for it though.
18:20:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Looking at the replay I can't see anything that looks like a Grand from 0940 to 1300. I wonder if this was one of those very long intervals.
18:25:09 <ynpvisitor105> What was it like between 0840 and 940?
18:26:18 <Kevin L™🌵> There was a lot of fog but no tall plumes. You could see the sky above the Grand area.
18:27:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Link:
18:30:52 <ynpvisitor105> That was the afternoon link
18:32:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Use the red bar at the bottom to move forward or back. Starts about 0600
18:40:29 <ynpvisitor105> Grand area around 0900-0910 looks suspicious...I'm no expert
18:55:20 <Kevin L™🌵> I looked at that in the 4X and still could not tell. Time would fit though.
20:03:47 <ynpvisitor68> No one posted BH!
