03:03:04 <ynpvisitor4> Grand?
03:03:09 <ynpvisitor4> Lion?
03:03:28 <ynpvisitor4> Or is that beehive?
03:06:16 <ynpvisitor4> I Think that is beehive
03:10:21 <ynpvisitor4> Gone now pretty sure it was beehive
03:12:45 <ynpvisitor4> Sort of looked like a plume back by bra d but really hard to see
03:13:37 <LindaG> Back by grand
03:33:54 <LindaG> Castle?
03:35:32 <ynpvisitor79> Yes, post it 0832
03:36:24 <LindaG> ?
03:36:55 <ynpvisitor79> 0532
03:37:16 <LindaG> Ok ill post
03:41:27 <ynpvisitor79> Hopefully we will soon be able to see if it is a major or minor :)
03:42:35 <LindaG> It seems pretty tall when I get a glimpse
03:43:13 <LindaG> Depends which way the pixels move
03:45:08 <ynpvisitor79> major is a 12 to 20 minute water phase then a long steam phase minor is~6min water phase then for the most part done
03:46:50 <LindaG> Thx
03:47:28 <ynpvisitor116> Good info, thx 79
03:47:43 <ynpvisitor79> yw
03:50:42 <ynpvisitor79> Castle is looking good towards a major
03:50:49 <LindaG> Looks like it still going
03:51:34 <ynpvisitor79> I'd call that a major
03:51:53 <LindaG> I'll update
03:55:59 <ynpvisitor79> From the Grand time, looking backwards I would guess we had a 5 grand day yesterday, but the 5th grand could not be seen for the fog. Maybe DaveM's enhanced overnight will show us more
03:57:31 <LindaG> I think maybe lion is going off back there hard to tell
03:58:08 <ynpvisitor79> i was thinking that also
04:03:56 <ynpvisitor79> on my replay it looked 0552ish, I posted it questionable
04:06:18 <GO SOMETHING> morning. I put in a placeholder for Grand last night so the database shows 5 eruptions yesterday - please flag it away if someone finds an actual time.
04:07:05 <GO SOMETHING> Virtually no chance it erupted after midnight and then within 5h1m since there hasnt been an nterval that short all year
04:08:52 <ynpvisitor79> Thanks Graham, I think you are correct, the fog was heavy last night.
04:09:34 <GO SOMETHING> i think thats the 5th one or 6th this year
04:09:59 <GO SOMETHING> count is now 35+ 29 23 14+
04:10:22 <GO SOMETHING> F&M SB Giant Morning
04:10:38 <ynpvisitor79> It looks like you have another Giant to record also
04:10:54 <GO SOMETHING> just did :)
04:11:15 <ynpvisitor79> oops you did it while I was typing
04:11:21 <GO SOMETHING> the picture looks a bit to the right, but i didnt watch the capture
04:12:02 <ynpvisitor79> I'm a very slow typer
04:12:14 <LindaG> OF
04:20:48 <ynpvisitor79> It did look a bit right but looked correct, mastiff steam before then Giant very large and long
04:58:56 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone!
04:59:09 <Mike J> Good morning Dave
04:59:32 <ynpvisitor26> Mornin' Dave!
04:59:38 <Dave from B™> Not quitting yet
04:59:38 <LindaG> Good morning Dave
05:00:33 <LindaG> Morning Kat
05:01:09 <Kat> Hey Linda!
05:07:22 <ynpvisitor18> Lion
05:55:02 <Kat> OF 0753
05:59:17 <Kat> Cold basin this morning!
06:00:35 <Jimbo Chromium> Surprised BH was visible in the early morning
06:33:32 <ynpvisitor1> Gee, I am #1 today!
06:40:15 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin, Bill
06:40:23 <Bill> Morning
06:40:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning.
06:44:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like a great time to hit the hardware store. bbl
06:48:49 <Jimbo Chromium> Since it's snowy, here's a seismic record of Veniaminof volcano in Alaska, which has been active.
07:18:23 <LindaG> I just saw the most amazing pictures of steamboat on Facebook. Yellowstone insiders hub page. If you are on facebook you should take a look
07:18:55 <Kat> Thanks!
07:19:27 <Dave from B™> Katie is the admin for that page
07:20:07 <Kat> Well yes she is!
07:20:51 <LindaG> Yes I'm one of the moderators. someone posted late last night
07:20:59 <Kat> OF 0920
07:21:46 <LindaG> Wow I'm on delay
07:22:01 <Kat> Sorry!
07:22:16 <LindaG> Not your fault
07:22:37 <Kat> :)
07:24:49 <Kat> Steam - Steam - Steam :)
07:27:14 <Kat> Grand to open around 1037 MT, 1237 EST. Our EST brains have to work all the time LOL!
07:28:29 <LindaG> It does get confusing
07:30:04 <Kat> HAHA - Well at least we can use it as an excuse when/IF we make an error! LOL :)
07:31:05 <Dave from B™> I'm glad I don't have to deal with that.
07:31:48 <Kat> Dave - we know you can handle it! :)
07:32:52 <Dave from B™> I didn't realize we had 2 more East Coast YNP lovers....there is a huge group here from the East
07:33:26 <Dave from B™> I'm happy to live 3 hours and 10 minutes from Norris
07:33:37 <Eric> Morning
07:33:38 <Kat> It does make it fun...I have to remember that you'all have just gotten started - we usually have a couple cups of coffee on you!
07:33:52 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
07:34:16 <Kat> Morning - for 30 more minutes :)
07:34:19 <Eric> So did we get 5 grands yesterday?
07:34:24 <Betty> hi all
07:34:30 <Eric> My morning has just started Kat :-PP
07:34:35 <Dave from B™> Graham is assuming so and I agree
07:34:36 <Eric> Hi Betty
07:34:43 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
07:35:24 <Betty> hi Eric, Dave, Kat, Linda, numbers
07:35:33 <Kat> Hi Betty - see everyone's waking up! LOL
07:35:47 <Eric> I think Betty has been awake for a while :-D
07:35:58 <Kat> I'm sure@!
07:36:03 <Betty> hahahaha, already tired again
07:36:21 <Eric> I think Graham's approximation was pretty darn good on Grand.
07:36:25 <LindaG> Hi betty
07:36:30 <Eric> Looking at pre and post eruptions.
07:36:43 <Kat> Me too Betty - it doesn't take long!
07:37:07 <ynpvisitor79> could not see the 5th Grand due to fog, but based on this mornings 0501 grand we had to have a 5 Grand day yesterday
07:37:22 <Eric> Yep, totally agree 79
07:37:41 <Eric> I was just checking Graham's approximation with the following eruption and it looks good.
07:37:51 <ynpvisitor79> yes
07:38:42 <Dave from B™> I don't like our black and white cam today...color please:)
07:39:09 <Dave from B™> So, my bag today is going to get some weird stares at TSA
07:39:47 <ynpvisitor79> explain
07:39:49 <LindaG> Why?
07:40:08 <Dave from B™> A soft sided car carrier, balaclava, warm gloves, 12 CD's from the 80s, a FEW pieces of clothing and a flashlight
07:40:28 <Dave from B™> and a bunch of straps
07:40:36 <Kat> Mysterious!
07:40:43 <ynpvisitor79> yep weird stares:)
07:40:51 <Kat> LOL
07:41:02 <Dave from B™> If only I could tell them a joke...but I know better
07:41:12 <LindaG> Cat carrier?
07:41:47 <Dave from B™> nope, I spelled that one correctly. It is for the top of Becca's car if we need extra room.
07:41:54 <Kat> Yea, i'd stay away from the jokes!
07:42:28 <Dave from B™> My fresh manager says I need to wear an I love Islam t shirt
07:43:10 <Kat> Hahaha - might not go over well....just sayin'
07:44:38 <LindaG> Never mind go over well you might not make it
07:45:12 <Jimbo Chromium> My son retweeted a funny: Apparently the gym management wasn't happy when I shouted "Active shooter in building" each time I sink a three-pointer.
07:45:24 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
07:45:30 <Kat> :)
07:47:23 <ynpvisitor79> At the Billings Airport if you pack a bunch of fresh homemade cookies in your carry-on you will be inspected many times with Hungry Eyes ( personal experience) just give them each a cookie and go on your Merry way
07:47:24 <Betty> time to head to the Christmas market. bbl
07:48:04 <Dave from B™> So, you are saying I should stuff some smoked salmon in my bag?
07:48:29 <ynpvisitor79> that would work :)
07:49:18 <Kat> :)
07:53:36 <Eric> Stuff rotten salmon in your bag an nobody will touch it :-P
07:53:59 <Dave from B™> How about some salmon heads and halibut bones?
07:54:10 <Eric> That sounds like crab bait
07:54:14 <Kat> Ewwww!
07:54:43 <Dave from B™> Both are for soup stock
07:55:59 <Kat> Think I'll pass on the soup today!
07:56:18 <Jimbo Chromium> I think the dogs might alert on that bag
07:56:46 <Eric> So much steam behind OF
07:57:02 <ynpvisitor82> was the steamboat photo recent? I am not a facebooker
07:57:27 <Eric> that is a really tall column of steam back there
07:57:48 <LindaG> It was from August, the 4th I Think, I'll have to see if photographer has website
07:59:54 <Dave from B™> I am going to bring an offering to SB the next time I go.
08:00:57 <Kat> I think we are seeing Aurum and steam from Anemone and Pump.
08:01:25 <Eric> The Madrid Dishes are getting back a bunch of data from Mars right now....hoping we have new pictures today!
08:01:58 <LindaG> Ready kat.?
08:01:58 <Eric> So hard to say what that is back there...white on white stinks :-(
08:02:12 <Kat> It does!
08:02:15 <Eric> I am going to imagine it's giantess :-P
08:02:48 <Kat> OK Eric - let me know how that works out for you!
08:03:33 <Kat> Thanks Linda! Had a good time this morning -have a great afternoon!
08:03:35 <Eric> Working great so far!
08:03:52 <Kat> Eric - LOL :)
08:04:06 <Jimbo Chromium> There have been some past Giantess eruptions in weather just like this. I wonder what the extended seismic signal on YFT is caused by.
08:04:58 <Eric> Rumbling diesel trucks I assume or snow plows Jimbo
08:05:14 <Jimbo Chromium> That'd be my first guess.
08:05:34 <Kat> Love Giantess! Have not seen a winter eruption yet!
08:05:37 <Eric> Some similar extended vibrations yesterday as well
08:05:38 <LindaG1> You too kat!
08:06:45 <Kat> Linda - Grand may be difficult! :(
08:07:12 <LindaG1> For sure. Barely saw it this morning
08:07:40 <ynpvisitor67> extended vibrations from snow grooming equipment or other trafic?
08:08:03 <Kat> I'll check back - gotta run for a few.
08:08:18 <Eric> Some cold doggies down there
08:09:00 <LindaG1> There they are
08:09:49 <LindaG1> I think maybe daisy?
08:10:19 <LindaG1> Then maybe not
08:15:11 <LindaG1> Does that look like grand I can't etwll
08:24:48 <Eric> White on White Linda :-(
08:25:39 <LindaG1> I had zoomed buy i think it was spasmodic
08:27:38 <Eric> I agree
08:27:45 <Eric> Frisky Bison down there
08:28:08 <Eric> Little battle for position
08:28:26 <LindaG1> They are having fun, or trying to stay warm
08:28:40 <Eric> They have been going at it for a bit
08:29:06 <Eric> All the others are watching
08:29:12 <LindaG1> Yeah they are battling, cool
08:29:32 <Eric> Dangerous game to play this time of year
08:29:42 <Eric> wow...sideways run was cool
08:29:52 <LindaG1> Here come more
08:30:27 <Jimbo Chromium> How'd he do that?
08:30:46 <Eric> Not sure...but their sideways running is pretty neat
08:30:51 <Jimbo Chromium> He's playing defense
08:31:05 <LindaG1> Agile
08:31:13 <Eric> This is exactly why you don't F*** with bison!
08:31:19 <Eric> They are huge and fast!
08:31:51 <Jimbo Chromium> Never seen a three-butt before
08:32:04 <LindaG1> Seriously
08:32:17 <Eric> Yes, it was one of the more interesting battles I have seen on the cam
08:32:30 <Jimbo Chromium> "The Good, the Bad, and the Bison"
08:32:46 <LindaG1> The others are just standing around
08:33:04 <Eric> I have seen some pretty amazing ones up near Lahardy rapids during the rut though!
08:33:38 <Eric> Saw a big bull dig a trench in the asphalt with it's horn!
08:33:50 <LindaG1> I wonder if they are young bulls jist practicing for the big day!
08:34:10 <Eric> Looks like it...I don't think anyone wants to get hurt at this time of year
08:34:37 <Eric> But taking out the competition early might be a strategy
08:35:48 <LindaG1> Guess they r done
08:41:46 <Eric> we are definitely in grand window now
08:41:51 <LindaG1> Daisy
08:41:59 <Eric> might even be able to see it
08:42:47 <LindaG1> Daisy is there
08:48:59 <Kevin L™🌵> I was gone all this time and there is no Aurum?
08:50:01 <Eric> "This is not the Aurum you are looking for"
08:50:06 <Dave from B™> I guess there was a major EQ in Anchorage area just a few minutes ago. My asst has 2 kids up there. one house has broken windows...6.4 EQ
08:50:13 <Eric> Waves hand in a Jedi style....
08:51:23 <Eric> wow...6.7
08:51:46 <Eric>
08:52:03 <Eric> right under anchorage
08:52:35 <Dave from B™> Her daughter (nurse) was in surgery at the time
08:52:48 <sparekitty> WOW.
08:52:55 <Eric> tsunami warning for anchroage
08:53:04 <Rice> 12:29 Eastern
08:53:08 <Eric> suggest they shelter in higher ground
08:53:28 <Rice> Run for the Hills, is that what you mean, Eric?
08:53:51 <Dave from B™> son lives 20 miles north of anchorage.
08:54:07 <Eric> or get to the tallest building in town
08:54:08 <Rice> Good luck to all of them!
08:54:16 <Rice> Hope they are ok
08:54:27 <LindaG1> OF
08:54:49 <Dave from B™> Joyce is talking to both of them. They are trying to shut water off at the main shutoff. pipes broken
08:54:55 <Eric> Tsunami center lists the quake as 7.2
08:55:23 <Eric> almost dead center on Anchorage
08:55:41 <Eric> Thats rough...I hope they get support quickly.
08:55:46 <Dave from B™> I bet there will be a LOT of damage. Son's house has cracks everywhere
08:56:24 <Jimbo Chromium> Shakes on the seismograph
08:56:27 <sparekitty> i have a sister in juneau and i always worry about her house, which is near the harbor. no warning for juneau at this moment.
08:57:34 <Eric> buildings look ok in anchorage:
08:58:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Rang the OF seismo good
08:58:33 <Eric> Some smoke in this webcam:
09:00:18 <Eric> This webcam quit and last image is the minute the earthquake happened:
09:01:28 <Eric> USGS revised that quake to7.0
09:01:53 <Jimbo Chromium> Messy in the grocery store:
09:03:16 <Jimbo Chromium> Swaying lights and broken crockery:
09:04:11 <Jimbo Chromium> Lots of things knocked down or fell over
09:04:15 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the links everyone
09:05:22 <Eric>
09:06:42 <Jimbo Chromium> Road collapse
09:07:08 <Kevin L™🌵> USGS now listing it as 7.0
09:07:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Bet the guy in that car needed a new set of Pampers.
09:08:15 <Jimbo Chromium> Better on top of the road than under it
09:08:47 <LindaG1> It's on msnbc
09:08:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Came close to being under it!
09:09:31 <Eric> Yes, they got very lucky
09:10:40 <Eric> Kodiak, Seward & Homer are all under tsunami warning
09:11:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Is this king crab season Dave?
09:12:18 <Dave from B™> Yes it is
09:13:00 <Dave from B™> From asst's comments most of damage appears north of Anchorage. Her daughter works in a 12 story bldg in Anchoarge on they are in pretty good shape
09:13:19 <Rice> After shocks are moving North.
09:13:47 <Eric> Yes, downtown webcams made it look like everything is good from the quake...but real damage can come from the followup tsunami
09:14:30 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure of elevations and how far inland tsunami can effect
09:15:11 <Eric>
09:15:20 <Eric> The written tsunami warnings should help
09:15:25 <Eric> They give that kind of data
09:15:58 <Eric> Hopefully people who live near the ocean know exactly what to do in case of a tsunami warning!
09:16:22 <Eric> They should know routes and high points.
09:17:38 <Eric> You could really see that quake on all of the YNP seismographs except the norris one
09:17:48 <Dave from B™> I know the Oregon Coast is plastered with warmings and safe zones
09:18:05 <LindaG1> Grand maybe
09:18:19 <Eric> Yep, you get it drilled into your head around here about tsunamis. It's not if, but when.
09:18:22 <Dave from B™> Not warnings from this quake but signs everywhere just in case
09:18:48 <LindaG1> GRAND?
09:18:54 <Eric> maybe
09:19:02 <Eric> doesn't look big enough
09:19:22 <LindaG1> Ok
09:19:25 <Eric> I would guess turban
09:19:30 <Kevin L™🌵> That is what we said about Giant yesterday
09:20:18 <LindaG1> I don't see spikes
09:20:26 <Eric> maybe post eruptive grand?
09:21:56 <Dave from B™> 5.8 aftershock
09:21:58 <Eric> I would assume that tsumani sirens are blaring in anchroage
09:22:06 <LindaG1> Daisy went at 10:41 I wondered if grand went about that time
09:22:07 <Eric> At least I hope they are
09:23:19 <ynpvisitor22> I wonder why it didn’t show up on Norris?
09:23:43 <Eric> Norris is weird like don't usually see other quakes show up on it's seismo
09:24:08 <ynpvisitor22> Also crazy that it shows up on all the YNP ones so far away
09:25:34 <ynpvisitor22> Here’s hoping the tsunami doesn’t happen
09:27:12 <ynpvisitor22> When was the last OF?
09:28:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Cold doggies!
09:28:55 <LindaG1> OF at 10:54
09:29:09 <ynpvisitor22> Thanks
09:29:21 <ynpvisitor22> It’s not posted
09:29:53 <LindaG1> I just noted on chat, hard for me to do webcam and post in gt
09:30:38 <Dave from B™> EQ's this large have been known to effect geysers in YNP
09:30:50 <Jimbo Chromium> Just looked this up to check; seismometers are tuned to certain frequencies. So YNP is probably tuned to higher frequencies than YFT, and so YNP picks up high frequency surface vibrations from SB, while YFT picks up lower frequency EQ waves.
09:31:14 <Jimbo Chromium> I'd sure like to see what a Giantess eruption looks like on YFT
09:31:21 <Jimbo Chromium> :(
09:32:29 <Rice> There goes Steamboat :thumbsdown::thumbsdown:
09:32:59 <ynpvisitor22> Now now, may not affect them at all
09:37:31 <Dave from B™> Asst just received a snapchat of damage to son's place. Things even fell out of the frig. cracks everywhere. pretty eerie when you know paople involved.
09:39:27 <Eric> Yep, that was a big quake
09:39:33 <Eric> shallow too
09:40:46 <Eric> While I haven't done anything with it for a long time...this is one of my twitter handles:
09:41:13 <ynpvisitor94> Jumbo, Giantess eruption looks kind of like a semi-rhythmic boom, boom, boom on seismo.
09:41:32 <Eric> When twitter first started I setup an alert to ping twitter when a major earthquake was reported by USGS
09:42:11 <ynpvisitor94> Oops - previous message should have said Jimbo
09:43:06 <Jimbo Chromium> Thanks, must be deeper steam bursts rather than shaking
09:43:39 <Jimbo Chromium> which makes sense for a fountain geyser
09:44:20 <ynpvisitor94> Yes, that is what I think it is.
09:44:29 <Eric> tsunami warning still in affect, #3 update issues
09:44:32 <Eric> issued
09:46:05 <Dave from B™> Daughter went to go home and on ramp for highway out of anchorage was gone
09:46:18 <Dave from B™> the exit she used for work
09:46:39 <Kevin L™🌵> That will take a while to fix.
09:49:04 <Jimbo Chromium> Tectonics giveth and tectonics taketh away
09:49:18 <Eric> I like that Jimbo
09:49:26 <Eric> I want a tshirt with that on it!
09:49:48 <999® 🎂-12h> well said, Jimbo
09:49:57 <999® 🎂-12h> morning all
09:50:22 <Eric> One tectonic plate said to another one, "There is too much friction between us!"
09:50:33 <Eric> The other replied...."It's not my fault."
09:50:38 <999® 🎂-12h> haha
09:52:03 <Jimbo Chromium> Similar vein:
09:53:11 <Eric> Haha...while looking for tectonic puns, I ran into this really good fish/chemistry one.
09:53:39 <Eric> What kind of fish is made of only 2 sodium atoms?
09:54:01 <Eric> 2 Na
09:54:10 <Dave from B™> hahaha
09:54:21 <LindaG1> Lol
09:54:24 <999® 🎂-12h> :)
09:54:29 <Jimbo Chromium> :thumbsup:
09:56:25 <LindaG1> News showing road collapses in alaska
09:56:28 <999® 🎂-12h> quite a powerful quake. Wonder if it'll have an effect on Yellowstone
09:58:00 <Dave from B™> DG, it is very possible
09:58:17 <999® 🎂-12h> GO GIANTESS
09:58:25 <999® 🎂-12h> just a bit of encouragement
10:00:40 <Eric> tsunami warning cancelled
10:01:04 <Dave from B™> Thanks Eric
10:01:58 <999® 🎂-12h> That's definitely a relief
10:02:01 <999® 🎂-12h> OF
10:02:24 <Eric> Dave, every house I have ever been to on the coast of oregon/washington has had a radio that is kept on 24/7 to the emergency alert channel. I would not stay at the coast without one.
10:02:45 <LindaG1> Of
10:02:56 <999® 🎂-12h> looks like the last one was a short
10:04:13 <LindaG1> It was hard to tell, kinda like this one
10:06:28 <LindaG1> Wow earthquake has taken over news feed, that says something
10:07:43 <999® 🎂-12h> probably because it was near Anchorage. I think if it was further inland, there wouldn't be as much headlines about such an earthquake
10:08:06 <LindaG1> Can't see a thing but be cam looks nice
10:08:42 <LindaG1> Vec cam
10:08:57 <999® 🎂-12h> it does look nice
10:09:17 <Eric> When Dave first mentioned the quake, there was not a single news article up yet.
10:09:40 <Eric> At least that google had scanned :-D
10:10:35 <Eric> The british tabloids crack me up: "Alaska earthquake: 7.0 quake ROCKS Anchorage - TSUNAMI WARNING as people run for lives"
10:11:48 <LindaG1> Im surprised it doesn't say yellowstone is next
10:14:19 <Jimbo Chromium> TV newsroom has some cleaning up to do:
10:15:14 <Jimbo Chromium> Worse road damage:
10:16:28 <999® 🎂-12h> oh, that British tabloid, was that by any chance Express?
10:18:40 <Eric> yes, of course it was the express :-P
10:19:25 <Eric> Cool twitter links Jimbo...thanks for sharing
10:22:46 <ynpvisitor78> terrible road damage though
10:27:24 <999® 🎂-12h> well... looks like at least Veniaminof's seismos decided to quit
10:32:23 <Jimbo Chromium> too close to Anchorage
10:38:05 <ynpvisitor78> tsunami warning canceled
10:38:35 <Jimbo Chromium> check out the Augustine volcano seismo:
10:39:07 <ynpvisitor78> wow
10:39:12 <Jimbo Chromium> This one is better
10:39:14 <Jimbo Chromium>
10:40:07 <ynpvisitor78> thanks Jimbo
10:40:13 <LindaG1> Ppl
10:41:05 <ynpvisitor78> might be the family living by the cabins
10:41:10 <Jimbo Chromium> no problem, I remembered Augustine was in Cook Inlet
10:41:14 <ynpvisitor78> unschooling their kids
10:41:52 <ynpvisitor78> they are cute, they think this is a lot of snow
10:42:04 <LindaG1> Olaf, olaf
10:42:16 <Jimbo Chromium> Olaf II
10:42:31 <ynpvisitor78> not sure if they know about the cam or GT
10:44:22 <ynpvisitor78> grandma is there too
10:45:19 <Casey> Did I miss anything good? I had a meeting with a potential client, and I didn't think he would appreciate me being distracted by geysers.
10:46:22 <LindaG1> Not much happening some bison and some people
10:47:16 <Jimbo Chromium> and :snow:
10:48:06 <LindaG1> Big earthquake in Alaska if didnt hear
10:49:18 <Jimbo Chromium> More videos are showing up on Twitter; just search on "Anchorage" and "#earthquake".
10:49:20 <Casey> No, I hadn't heard. Thanks. I'm reading about it now.
10:50:15 <LindaG1> Air traffic control tower being evacuated, no flights into anchaorage
10:51:54 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Linda. Last I heard runways were fine and flights were going
10:52:24 <LindaG1> One runway is open for flights leaving
10:52:54 <LindaG1> Oh just opened control tower, that was quick
10:59:58 <ynpvisitor48> Hey everyone!! We were those people
11:00:24 <Dave from B™> Hi 48. Looks like you're having fun
11:01:10 <Eric> Nice!
11:01:24 <Eric> Can you make a small snowman for us to watch?
11:01:27 <Eric> :-D
11:01:28 <LindaG1> Oh you didn't reconstruct olaf, we were rooting for that. 😊
11:02:12 <LindaG1> Olaf was the snowman
11:02:35 <999® 🎂-12h> Lion doing something?
11:03:18 <999® 🎂-12h> probably splashes actually
11:03:33 <Jimbo Chromium> After Olaf melted, I searched for a snow sculpture of a hand reaching out of the snow (like "Carrie"). Couldn't find one, but I did see a lot of scary snowmen.
11:03:52 <Jimbo Chromium> I can't believe nobody has done that.
11:04:21 <Eric> fingers are hard in the snow
11:04:48 <Jimbo Chromium> Yeah, have to use some water and freeze it.
11:04:58 <Eric> so what are the 2 steam columns left of dome?
11:05:23 <ynpvisitor48> We will be building you guys a snow man
11:05:32 <Eric> peanut pool and ??
11:05:47 <Eric> Sweet...thanks 48!
11:05:55 <LindaG1> Yay!
11:05:57 <ynpvisitor48> We post a lot of content on Instagram, YouTube and facebook
11:06:03 <Eric> solitary looks nice up there
11:06:03 <ynpvisitor48>
11:06:35 <ynpvisitor78> oh good 48, you found CHAT!!
11:06:35 <ynpvisitor48> has tons of beautiful OF erupting up close and personal
11:06:47 <LindaG1> Solitary does look nice
11:06:48 <ynpvisitor48> We did thanks to Maureen!!!
11:07:00 <ynpvisitor78> this is Maureen
11:07:10 <ynpvisitor78> thanks in advance for building us a new snowman
11:07:13 <Dave from B™> Hi Maureen
11:07:20 <ynpvisitor78> Hi Dave
11:07:31 <ynpvisitor78> I thought I would contact these guys and get us a new snowman
11:07:41 <ynpvisitor78> Also, tell them about BH texts so they can see it up close
11:09:19 <Eric> Hi Maureen!!!
11:10:29 <ynpvisitor78> Hey Eric
11:10:37 <ynpvisitor78> did you get your package finally?
11:11:24 <Eric>'s still travelling someplace!
11:12:15 <Eric> I am laughing at Buti Yoga....thanks for sharing your youtube links.
11:12:28 <ynpvisitor78> that is so nuts. I had it happen once to me too, it is definitely NOT SMARTPOST
11:13:43 <Eric>'s crazy where that package is travelling too. That cannot be the most efficient route
11:14:57 <ynpvisitor82> who is there now?
11:15:11 <Dave from B™> 48, are you still here?
11:15:22 <ynpvisitor78> I think 48 quit
11:15:29 <ynpvisitor78> I have been chatting with her on FB
11:15:50 <ynpvisitor78> her husband works maintenance
11:16:12 <ynpvisitor78> this will be their first snowman of the season, I hope the snow cooperates
11:17:50 <ynpvisitor78> are we sure it was Giant yesterday?
11:17:53 <Eric> I saw her husband had a maintenance hat on in the video
11:18:14 <LindaG1> Grand maybe?
11:18:20 <ynpvisitor78> they are from Florida, this will be quite an experience
11:18:34 <ynpvisitor78> no Grand, Grand plume would be BIG
11:19:11 <LindaG1> This keepa starting and stopping
11:19:28 <Dave from B™> Maureen, how did you meet them?
11:19:37 <ynpvisitor78> my stream is much better than yesterday
11:19:46 <ynpvisitor78> I commented on their Yellowstone Up Close and Personal posts
11:19:59 <ynpvisitor78> people were confused how someone was taking videos in the interior
11:20:21 <ynpvisitor78> their FB page about their experience is called OUR ADVENTURE FILLED LIFE
11:20:34 <ynpvisitor78> so I went there, and messaged them, and we have been chatting
11:20:39 <Eric> Yes, probably good for them to clarify they are employees or family. Great experience for them and their family
11:20:50 <ynpvisitor78> With Grand so regular, and BH so close to their cabin, I wanted to make sure they had GT
11:21:05 <Eric> Good call.
11:21:07 <LindaG1> Ghg5
11:22:07 <ynpvisitor78> cracks me up she thinks there is a lot of snow...
11:22:13 <OurAdventureFil> Yaaaaay
11:22:18 <ynpvisitor78> hey, there they are
11:22:44 <999® 🎂-12h> good afternoon
11:22:49 <OurAdventureFil> Yay! Made it back. Was trying to figure out this chat
11:22:52 <Dave from B™> Wait until it really snows
11:22:57 <ynpvisitor78> West only has 4 or 5 inches on the ground
11:23:14 <ynpvisitor82> that is funny! Just wait . . .
11:23:17 <OurAdventureFil> We have no idea what we are in for
11:23:23 <ynpvisitor78> barely made it through ski festival
11:23:38 <ynpvisitor78> maybe the snow will accumulate today
11:24:14 <OurAdventureFil> So you guys want your snow man next to the old Faithful sign?
11:24:17 <ynpvisitor78> shovel out your windows so you do not get cabin fever
11:24:23 <ynpvisitor78> noooo
11:24:30 <ynpvisitor78> we want it here, where the cam is now
11:24:32 <OurAdventureFil> We are trying to get out daily
11:24:45 <ynpvisitor78> right in front of OF, between the benches
11:24:45 <LindaG1> In front of camera, old faithful
11:25:12 <OurAdventureFil> Ok! Got it!
11:25:33 <ynpvisitor78> thank you, we can watch you build it!
11:26:02 <OurAdventureFil> Awesome! I’ll give you guys a heads up before we go. Lunch time!!! So excited to connect with all of you!!!
11:26:04 <ynpvisitor78> is it snowman snow now?
11:26:16 <ynpvisitor78> sometimes snow is too cold to build one
11:26:25 <OurAdventureFil> I really wouldn’t know the difference. #floridaproblems
11:26:25 <ynpvisitor78> have a good lunch, and happy to connect you
11:26:36 <OurAdventureFil> It’s nice and fluffy
11:26:36 <ynpvisitor78> too funny
11:26:56 <999® 🎂-12h> any snow is good enough to build a snowman from if you try hard enough
11:26:56 <ynpvisitor78> well test it out close to the cabin, see if you can make balls
11:27:04 <ynpvisitor78> DG, you have NO idea
11:27:17 <OurAdventureFil> Ok. Any other helpful tips?
11:27:26 <999® 🎂-12h> probably true
11:27:41 <ynpvisitor78> once the VEC is open, you can get water to help make the snowman if you cannot succeed before then
11:27:42 <LindaG1> Make a ball and roll it in the snow
11:27:55 <ynpvisitor78> Linda, you need to get out more
11:27:57 <ynpvisitor78> he he
11:28:00 <OurAdventureFil> What’s VEC?
11:28:09 <ynpvisitor78> Visitor Education Center
11:28:16 <ynpvisitor78> it opens December 15
11:28:17 <OurAdventureFil> Ahhhh. Got it
11:28:24 <999® 🎂-12h> Aurum?
11:28:33 <999® 🎂-12h> thought I saw water there
11:28:40 <ynpvisitor78> yeah
11:29:00 <ynpvisitor78> good catch DG
11:29:24 <ynpvisitor78> DG is your birthday coming ?
11:29:42 <999® 🎂-12h> yes
11:30:04 <ynpvisitor78> Happy Birthday a little early I guess
11:31:24 <999® 🎂-12h> doesn't really matter :)
11:32:14 <ynpvisitor78> you didn't post Aurum
11:32:48 <999® 🎂-12h> oops, it's there now
11:33:07 <Kevin L™🌵> It knows
11:33:52 <LindaG1> Seems to have cleared...for now
11:38:14 <ynpvisitor79> o one posted the 1118 grand od the 1122 riverside?
11:38:32 <ynpvisitor79> No* or*
11:38:43 <999® 🎂-12h> doesn't look like it
11:39:55 <Casey> of
11:41:05 <999® 🎂-12h> hmm... decent conditions for an attempt timing of OF
11:56:58 <LindaG1> Ghg5
12:01:46 <LindaG1> Aurum?
12:02:18 <999® 🎂-12h> would be an odd interval, as even for a possible second in a series it's a tad bit late
12:02:26 <Kevin L™🌵> I wish. that would be a 33m interval.
12:03:17 <LindaG1> Was doing something couldn't tell and too much steam
12:04:02 <999® 🎂-12h> probably Pump or a Giantess boil
12:07:46 <Dave from B™> Alright fellow gazers. Time to start my adventure. Have a great weekend. I'll be back in the room on Sunday.
12:08:14 <LindaG1> Have a good trip.
12:09:36 <999® 🎂-12h> have fun Dave
12:13:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Good luck Dave
12:13:52 <LindaG1> Ghg5
12:27:03 <GO SOMETHING> looks like the benches shrunk a litle?
12:27:37 <999® 🎂-12h> a bit
12:34:32 <GO SOMETHING> i suspect its 1 candle plus a lot of hours DG :)
12:35:02 <GO SOMETHING> slot maybe - lots of steam past OF cone
12:35:15 <GO SOMETHING> and gone

13:22:54 <999® 🎂-9h> I bet the Norris Museum building absorbed much of the quake
13:23:12 <LindaG1> Old faithful taking its time
13:24:35 <Eric> Some amazing media coming back from alaska quake:
13:25:06 <Eric>
13:27:34 <LindaG1> Of

14:15:47 <999® 🎂-9h> thanks all
14:16:06 <Kevin L™🌵> HB DG
14:28:36 <999® 🎂-9h> Grand?
14:29:16 <ynpvisitor79> YYes
14:29:41 <999® 🎂-9h> not sure when it started
14:30:59 <ynpvisitor79> 1627 start
14:31:10 <999® 🎂-9h> thanks
14:31:20 <ynpvisitor79> yw
14:32:24 <999® 🎂-9h> a darn short interval if you ask me - could be on the first Turban since overflow was reached
14:34:30 <ynpvisitor79> the 1118 was ie looked about 2/3rd way through
14:35:49 <999® 🎂-9h> I wonder - has there ever been an interval shorter than 5 hours?
14:38:12 <ynpvisitor79> 11/17 we had a 5h 14 min interval this is probanly the same if we saw ehe 1118 start
14:38:30 <ynpvisitor79> probably*
14:41:52 <ynpvisitor79> the 6h17min interval for the1118 is probably shorter
14:43:02 <999® 🎂-9h> probably along the ways of 6h11m if 1118 was seen about 2/3 in
14:47:52 <ynpvisitor79> upon review of my replay start was ~1110 camera was flying from steam puff to steam puff and never stayed on Grand enough to determine I will change 1118 to 1110
15:03:28 <999® 🎂-9h> OF ns
15:07:02 <ynpvisitor78> short Grand interval.
15:13:04 <999® 🎂-9h> I'm off for today. Have fun watching whatever may erupt.
15:23:46 <LindaG1> Sorry 79 I'll concentrated on slowing it down
