01:41:45 <ynpvisitor13> Geyser ghosts out tonight
06:58:22 <ynpvisitor117> It’s warming up!! Only -10. It was -19 earlier.
07:02:20 <ynpvisitor111> Will Steamboat break the record today?
07:03:22 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
07:03:35 <Mike J> Morning Dave
07:04:03 <Rice> I am worried the Earthquake in AK, effected Steamboat. I hope I am wrong.
07:05:05 <Dave from B™> I hope you're wrong as well, Rice
07:05:27 <Dave from B™> I have 5hr25 minutes left in my window
07:17:30 <Dave from B™> I;m not obsssed. I woke up yesterday morning with a dream that the 2 little blips on the seismo earlier this week messed up Sb and it hadn't erupted for 3 weeks.
07:24:42 <Rice> Yes you are obsessed, we all are or we would not be on this website !!!!!
07:25:16 <Rice> Staring at a white background, hoping to see anything. Kinduve sad
07:48:28 <Dave from B™> Not much of a geyser view but to me the steam is amazing this time of year
07:52:05 <Dave from B™> Good morning Bill
07:52:12 <Bill> Morning
08:22:45 <Dave from B™> Lots of steam from Giantess this morning
08:23:18 <Dave from B™> or is that Aurum?
08:26:51 <ynpvisitor58> just giantess steam
08:27:20 <Dave from B™> me excited for a second
08:28:02 <ynpvisitor58> I have been called away, camera controls released, enjoy the day
08:28:54 <Dave from B™> Bye 58
08:30:38 <Lithium Again?> Hi all
08:32:13 <Dave from B™> Morning Jimbo
08:34:07 <Mike J> Jimbo, get the right element tomorrow and you can be a compound containing Li2
08:54:30 <Dave from B™> Is that Riverside back there....lighter cloud back there
08:59:22 <ynpvisitor15> Jimbo, are you depressed? Too much Lithium is not a good thing. :)
09:01:38 <Lithium Again?> No, I'm just extremely reactive
09:02:07 <Lithium Again?> Yellowstone Lake looks otherworldly right now
09:02:52 <ynpvisitor15> This time of year reacting with others is a good thing.
09:03:36 <Lithium Again?> Except for members of the halogen family, tends to be explosive
09:07:00 <ynpvisitor15> Sad, but it is always necessary to limit your acquaintances.
09:16:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like Joe had to leave so I will take the cam for him.
09:29:06 <ynpvisitor64> Something is rising above the fog
09:30:12 <Lithium Again?> Lots of ice on the river by Gardiner
09:46:19 <ynpvisitor18> Is this Steamboat Day?
09:46:38 <Kevin L™🌵> FYI at 1100 Virtual Rails will be devoting a feed to the Bush Funeral Train live.
09:46:48 <Kevin L™🌵> According to Dave it is
09:48:58 <Lithium Again?> 1100 in which time zone?
09:49:23 <Kevin L™🌵> MST
09:49:31 <Kevin L™🌵> 1300 edt
09:49:42 <Lithium Again?> aka 1 PM est (not edt!)
09:49:51 <Lithium Again?> (I went to the link after I asked)
09:50:10 <ynpvisitor18> didn't know there was a train involved - that's neat
09:50:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Feeling greasy today Jimbo?
09:50:17 <Lithium Again?> Is there a picture of the engine? I heard about it on the radio this AM
09:50:27 <ynpvisitor15> People like trains. I suspect it will get national coverage.
09:50:29 <Lithium Again?> Slightly
09:51:32 <Lithium Again?> Of course, I searched again after I asked. Good article about a somber subject, Presidential funeral trains:
09:51:43 <ynpvisitor15> 0950 on Fluff
09:51:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Google UP 4141. Lots of pictures there. The engine will be retired for static display.
09:52:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Very Pretty engine
09:52:40 <Lithium Again?> Yes, I've seen it now.
09:54:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Glad this one lasted long. It would be difficult to tell.
09:58:56 <ynpvisitor116> so they painted the train in 2005, guess he had his funeral plans done early
09:59:34 <ynpvisitor116> and died before Trump repaints it because he doesnt like the colors
09:59:55 <Kevin L™🌵> They did the engine to honor him. They even let him drive it!
10:00:42 <ynpvisitor15> Done for library opening?
10:02:13 <Kevin L™🌵> It may have been.
10:04:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Up started doing "heritage units" back then. Many people think it was to honor the railroads that have folded into the UP but it was really to use the old logos so they did not fall into public domain and the UP could charge for use of the logos.
10:06:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Sure hope this fog lifts soon.
10:13:42 <Lithium Again?> Don't you say that the morning after every pub crawl? ;););)
10:13:55 <Dave from B™> haha Jimbo
10:14:14 <Dave from B™> wakey wakey SB
10:15:23 <Kevin L™🌵> I feel that way about every morning anymore.
10:27:48 <Eric> Morning
10:27:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
10:28:04 <Eric> I see SB is still quiet
10:28:12 <Kevin L™🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
10:29:36 <Eric> Hey Bill...if you are actually here, do you have an ETA on the next Giant data pull? That info has been huge in helping us identify Giant eruptions.
10:36:52 <Dave from B™> Eric, end of my window is only 114 minutes away:(
10:40:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Interesting feed from southern california:
10:40:57 <Kevin L™🌵> We thought it was bad here
10:42:16 <Eric> BTW, here is the giant logger data chart from 10/25 to 11/09, it's interactive so you can put your mouse over the spikes to see time/temp
10:42:21 <Eric>
10:43:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Interesting Eric
10:44:06 <Eric> You can see the smaller/lighter spikes that I believe are hot periods.
10:45:09 <Eric> ohh, and the logger is an hour adjust your times accordingly :-P
10:45:27 <ynpvisitor96> Where do you find that data?
10:46:45 <Eric> NPS Geo provides it here:
10:47:13 <Eric> They upload all of the logger data to those folders.
10:47:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like fog may be starting to clear.
10:47:28 <Eric> Yes, we have shadows :-D
11:04:10 <Eric> Can almost see to the firehole now
11:05:10 <Kevin L™🌵> I see blue
11:06:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Weather for funeral train is dismal.
11:08:18 <Eric> didnt know there was a funeral train
11:09:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Link posted at 0946
11:09:44 <Eric> thx
11:11:06 <ynpvisitor15> PBS appears to be covering it live also
11:12:34 <Eric> thx
11:13:01 <Eric> wow...they are even keeping the road cleared for a past president!
11:13:10 <Eric> overpasses are blocked too
11:13:30 <ynpvisitor96> Sweet, thanks for link to the logger data!
11:13:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like something in Lion BH area
11:13:51 <Dave from B™> Looks like Lion
11:14:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Think you are right Dave
11:14:54 <Eric> When was the last funeral train?
11:15:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Steam on static looks farther away than BH
11:15:16 <Eric> Yes, looks like lion
11:16:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't think long enough for initial.
11:31:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like bubblers are on so BH most likely hasn't gone yet.
11:34:38 <Eric> PBS at trainyard where Bush will board the train
11:35:45 <Eric> Nice look at the train and the route:
11:43:39 <Eric> George is being moved to the train now
11:56:06 <Eric> UP 4141 looks ready to roll
12:03:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Highball 4141
12:03:17 <Eric> on the move
12:05:44 <Dave from B™> C'mon SB, a tribute for George please!
12:07:10 <Kevin L™🌵> The final car on the train is the sister car to the one I rode through Feather River Canyon.
12:07:19 <Eric> A SB salute would be cool
12:07:47 <Eric> Nice...the City of Portland UPP 80088 looked nice.
12:07:53 <Eric> 8008
12:08:17 <Kevin L™🌵> I gave a class in that car once.
12:08:31 <Eric> Quite the grotto cloud
12:08:39 <Eric> Very cool Kevin
12:12:00 <Eric> good cameras on CNN
12:12:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Well Lion is giving a salute.
12:19:24 <Kevin L™🌵> And a Daisy salute
12:23:57 <Eric> Washington Post has a nice train feed too:
12:24:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Here is some City of Portland car info:
12:25:46 <Eric> bhi
12:25:48 <Kevin L™🌵> And a BH salute!!!
12:25:49 <Eric> salute!
12:25:57 <Eric> .
12:25:58 <Eric> .
12:26:59 <Eric> A lot of train horn.
12:27:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Lot of DUMB people on or too near the tracks.
12:27:32 <Steph> Thanks for text! At least today I don't have to watch in the Target check out line. :lol:
12:28:06 <Eric> Agree Kevin
12:28:15 <Kitt> yay indy
12:28:18 <Lithium Again?> Haha I fooled Beehive I was away from my screen but I CAME BACK
12:28:39 <LindaG> Hey hey 😄
12:28:53 <LindaG> Not at target lol
12:29:18 <Kitt> Steph, be happy you live near a Target store
12:29:29 <Kitt> Worland only has a Shopko
12:29:45 <Steph> I am, and I was happy to watch Beehive in line. But everyone was wondering why I was smiling like a goof.
12:29:59 <Steph> I mean it's not Walmart for crying out loud.
12:30:10 <ynpvisitor52> :)
12:30:11 <Kitt> That is usually about the time I show them what I am watching
12:30:29 <LindaG> Oh I watched last week at target I thought you were referencing that. Lol
12:30:41 <Kitt> Walmart is at least 90 minutes from Worland
12:30:48 <Steph> That's so awesome!
12:31:14 <Steph> Not that Walmart is far away, Kitt, but that LindaG was watching at Target too.
12:31:54 <Kitt> we go to Billings or Cody for a shopping fix sometimes, depending upon the weather
12:32:07 <Rice> Shows what a bunch of nut jobs we all are!
12:32:15 <LindaG> I was got the text and sort of pulled the cart to the side, that's when I knew I was hitting the compulsive stage
12:32:16 <Steph> YES!
12:32:19 <Kevin L™🌵> My wife watched it on her iPhone while we were driving through Nephi Utah about a month ago.
12:32:30 <Kitt> Haven't done any Christmas shopping yet
12:33:20 <Rice> I have things to do away from my office right now, but here I sit waiting for a damn geyser, that I have seen 100's of times before
12:33:23 <Kitt> this is going to be a monster Beehive
12:33:49 <Rice> And will see 100's of time in the future
12:33:55 <Dave from B™> It's okay Rice! It is a good stress reliever!:)
12:34:19 <Rice> But this one just might be different, so I have to see it, Droooolllllll
12:34:24 <Eric> are not the only one Rice :-D
12:34:26 <Kitt> welcome to step 1 of the geyser program
12:34:47 <Emily> Thanks for the etxt
12:34:54 <Kitt> hi Emily
12:35:03 <Eric> I am also watching the funeral train....
12:36:18 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon all
12:36:41 <LindaG> Hi
12:36:51 <Kitt> Go Big Beehive!
12:36:53 <Eric> Go Bee!
12:36:53 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
12:36:56 <Eric> Boom
12:37:09 <Kitt> more up
12:37:12 <Kitt> oh yeah
12:37:28 <Emily> I am on lag
12:37:34 <LindaG> Me too
12:37:34 <Steph> Me too
12:37:39 <Steph> There we go!
12:37:40 <Eric> It's nice!
12:37:53 <Lithium Again?> Worth the wait
12:37:55 <Eric> Glad it waited out the fog!
12:38:03 <Dave from B™> Nice against the blue sky
12:38:16 <ynpvisitor999®> some long intervals recently
12:38:27 <Dave from B™> SB is 8 hours from 8 days:(
12:38:28 <Kitt> it does that
12:38:30 <BSK> Wonderful afternoon treats two days in a row!
12:38:30 <Rice> Nice, Now I can go find the contractor who just broke a window!
12:38:51 <Emily> I need my bbbBBBWAAAAHHHHHHhhhhhhh on seismo soon
12:39:13 <ynpvisitor999®> I think we'll be having those day-long intervals of Bee for a while. Seems like it has settled around there
12:39:40 <LindaG> Little rainbow
12:40:04 <Steph> Oh it's gorgeous! Makes me so happy!
12:40:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Good BH view on static
12:40:46 <Kitt> Except if Beehive knows you are waiting on the boardwalk in the winter for a 24 hour interval, then it will have snuck a 12 hour in during the night
12:41:43 <Kitt> well that was a lovely break
12:41:49 <Kitt> did you lose Grand?
12:42:05 <Dave from B™> It was really foggy this morning
12:42:09 <Kitt> oh
12:42:11 <BSK> I think it's still there. ;)
12:42:20 <Kevin L™🌵> VERY foggy
12:42:22 <Kitt> looks like maybe now?
12:42:42 <Kitt> or is that Grotto
12:43:24 <LindaG> Doesn't look like it's moving
12:43:51 <ynpvisitor58> that is Grotto area
12:44:19 <ynpvisitor58> Lion
12:44:41 <Eric> early...minor?
12:45:53 <ynpvisitor999®> what was the approximate duration of the 1212 Lion?
12:46:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't know the duration
12:48:58 <ynpvisitor58> Disregard lion it was left over Bee
12:55:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Found an interesting Netherlands train DG:
12:59:03 <ynpvisitor74> Home now, but I just watched that Bee at the dentist!
12:59:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Hey Dave, keep that in mind for your next Giantess!
12:59:41 <Steph> ynpvisitor74, that is so great! Puts a smile on my face to know we all love geysers!
13:01:08 <Eric> Yep, this chat room maintains a pretty good group of geyser geeks.
13:02:35 <LindaG> No snowman yet? Guess it's too cold or not enough of the white stuff
13:02:45 <Eric> How low was the temp this morning?
13:03:03 <LindaG> No idea
13:03:11 <Eric> Yep, we had our life adventure mom on here one time but haven't seen her since.
13:03:22 <Eric> She promised a snow person
13:04:09 <LindaG> She posted on Facebook saying they were going to try 2 days ago but alas...
13:04:27 <LindaG> OF
13:04:30 <ynpvisitor14> of
13:04:31 <ynpvisitor74> The snow may be to dry to hold together.
13:06:58 <LindaG> We need a good storm, but only at night so it doesn't disturb our gazing . 😉
13:07:42 <ynpvisitor74> At night and before we have the moon back.
13:07:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Pretty big one in southern california today. Mudslides all over.
13:08:02 <Eric> ugg, was worried about that :-(
13:08:21 <ynpvisitor999®> that's an interesting train indeed, Kevin. It apparantly had the nickname 'Sperm whale'
13:09:25 <Dave from B™> ERic, snow is too dry for snowman....we need some temps in the 20's/30's
13:10:08 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought you would like that one DG.
13:10:16 <y> -31F in West this AM.
13:10:43 <LindaG> Chilly
13:10:45 <ynpvisitor999®> I do. Didn't know we used to have such a train driving around here
13:10:59 <ynpvisitor74> For those of you with humidity, dry snow is real.
13:11:50 <LindaG> Humidity is a new Jersey's second name
13:15:02 <ynpvisitor74> My favorite snow is so dry you clear your car by slamming the door
13:15:09 <Eric> We call our snow wet cement around here!
13:15:27 <Kevin L™🌵> We call snow non exixtant here.
13:15:40 <Dave from B™> Sometimes you can "shovel" your walk with your leaf blower
13:15:51 <Eric> Lion trion
13:15:55 <LindaG> We can get both, I prefer light and fluffy, nothing worse than shoveling wet snow
13:16:08 <Eric> skiing in wet snow sucks too :-P
13:16:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion'
13:16:36 <Kevin L™🌵> A real effort
13:16:41 <Dave from B™> No fun shoveling when the snow sticks to your shovel
13:16:43 <Ben VL> In Denver, we just wait for it to melt off in about a day or so.
13:17:13 <LindaG> I was in Tennessee once when it snowed, not good
13:20:22 <ynpvisitor74> That is the truth, Ben VL, except those dang upslopes!
13:21:06 <Kevin L™🌵> 😎🌴
13:21:39 <LindaG> Look at aurum
13:22:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Steamy
13:22:22 <LindaG> It was doing something
13:23:27 <Ben VL> Or houses with a north facing driveway...
13:24:42 <ynpvisitor74> Fraid that is me
13:25:27 <ynpvisitor8> Me too in Western Colorado - North garage door
13:25:33 <Ben VL> Ouch.
13:25:51 <Ben VL> I have a long driveway, but is faces south
13:26:06 <ynpvisitor8> That's better
13:26:09 <Ben VL> But our neighbors across the street have ice in their cutter all winter long
13:26:40 <Ben VL> gutter*
13:26:47 <ynpvisitor74> Most of the time I clear my snow with a push broom. I'm sorry for you all with cement
13:26:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum
13:26:53 <Kevin L™🌵> .
13:26:54 <Kevin L™🌵> .
13:26:54 <Kevin L™🌵> .
13:27:19 <LindaG> Wow I guess so
13:27:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Big on static
13:28:39 <LindaG> Nice
13:30:40 <ynpvisitor58> Aurum ~1325:40 to 1326:35
13:30:49 <ynpvisitor74> Looking down basin - it's so still I thought the feed was frozen.
13:31:42 <Steph> That happens to me all the time, then I refresh and oh...
13:32:31 <ynpvisitor74> It's just such a nice contrast from the fog earlier
13:36:22 <ynpvisitor999®> c'mon Steamboat... don't let a quake put you down
13:38:30 <ynpvisitor10> which quake? Alaska?
13:38:35 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
13:41:28 <ynpvisitor116> still has till 0030 to be in Dave's window, rght?
13:45:37 <Dave from B™> my window has expired as of 1230
13:45:42 <Dave from B™> 18 hour window
13:46:09 <Dave from B™> I hope it stays under 8 days
14:16:32 <Steph> See ya'll! Have a great afternoon in the basin!
14:16:43 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Steph
14:16:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight
14:17:04 <Dave from B™> bye Steph
14:17:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion 1417(:05)
14:21:38 <ynpvisitor999®> ~3m41s
14:21:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Longer than I thought it would be.
14:23:21 <ynpvisitor999®> definitely a long one for this far into the series
14:23:46 <ynpvisitor999®> probably at least 1 or 2 more before series end I think
14:33:38 <ynpvisitor999®> LC ie
14:34:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
14:44:19 <ynpvisitor58> is that daisy steam on the left?
14:44:58 <ynpvisitor58> nope tks
15:06:00 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
15:06:16 <Kevin L™🌵> That is Daisy
15:11:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> what, no wiggles?
15:12:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Not one
15:12:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave failed us.
15:12:16 <ynpvisitor74> So, does anyone know what are the various steam clouds on South Washburn static?
15:14:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> when does the Dave window close?
15:14:45 <Dave from B™> It is already closed
15:15:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh, thats bad ..... it must think you were there
15:15:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> in a few minutes there will just be the one 8d interval that was longer (post disturbance recovery)
15:16:11 <Kevin L™🌵> He gets fish tails in his stocking this year.
15:16:52 <Dave from B™> I don't like the lengthening interval trend
15:21:20 <ynpvisitor58> Can anyone correlate the end of the 1964 eruptions with a natural happening, like an earthquake or something?
15:22:25 <Dave from B™> 58, that's a great question. Might have been a disturbance.
15:23:16 <ynpvisitor999®> you mean the 25-day interval between 29 Sep and 25 Oct 1964? Looks like a disturbance-related interval to me
15:24:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe 29 is its limit?
15:25:41 <ynpvisitor999®> that'd be a rather specific limit of eruptions :D
15:26:42 <Dave from B™> Most likely a disturbacnes zaps it and lengtjhens the intervals and then at some point they stop all together
15:27:17 <Dave from B™> To be honest, I was surprised SB recovered so weel from this years disturbance
15:27:34 <ynpvisitor999®> as if nothing had happened
15:28:13 <Ben VL> It's first disturbance interval was short, too.
15:28:20 <Eric> We are still within 12 hours of it's guys are being dramatic!
15:28:33 <ynpvisitor29> lol
15:28:35 <ynpvisitor999®> I was surprised it was able to do 1h+ eruptions on a 5d interval
15:28:38 <Dave from B™> :P
15:29:13 <Ben VL> And the minors during the disturbance sounded like they were stronger than the off season ones usually are.
15:29:27 <ynpvisitor29> it never goes off when I come here and check, maybe I should leave... lol
15:29:36 <Dave from B™> I can see the headline now....Anchorage quake puts Steamboat to sleep...Wyoming to sue Alaska in Federal court.
15:29:44 <Ben VL> I wouldn't be surprised if it goes by tomorrow morning.
15:29:46 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
15:30:29 <ynpvisitor999®> guess I was right about at least one eruption for Lion
15:30:38 <Lithium Again?> Good lighting
15:30:38 <Eric> wow...nice lion
15:31:12 <ynpvisitor999®> 1h12m interval... I think there's a good chance this is the last eruption of the series
15:34:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand ie
15:40:04 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
15:40:30 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd
15:40:37 <Lithium Again?> goody!
15:40:42 <ynpvisitor999®> nice heat ripples above SC's plume
15:41:28 <Lithium Again?> Well played, Grand
15:41:38 <Eric> 6m second?
15:41:48 <Eric> ohh, grand was ie
15:42:02 <ynpvisitor999®> we're probably 9 or 10 minutes in now
15:42:07 <Lithium Again?> you meant 6m 1st
15:42:27 <Lithium Again?> but it was very likely longer
15:42:38 <ynpvisitor999®> b2 done
15:42:44 <Eric> I meant 2nd @ 6m, but didn't realize the grand call was IE
15:43:30 <Lithium Again?> :thumbsup:
15:43:57 <Eric> Pretty lake static
15:44:00 <Lithium Again?> Now I can head home
15:44:17 <ynpvisitor999®> am not liking the lack of steam
15:44:24 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like -2*Q
15:44:43 <Lithium Again?> The lake has been looking good -- totally different in the early morning with sub-zero (F) temps
15:45:40 <Eric> surprised we aren't seeing more freezing
15:45:55 <ynpvisitor999®> a fun Grand nonetheless
15:47:33 <ynpvisitor74> Does anyone know what basins Washburn South shows? I've seen big steam but no clue from what.
15:47:54 <ynpvisitor999®> the lake has probably too much waves on it to freeze faster. If it was flat, it'd probably have been frozen for a large portion already
15:47:58 <Eric> Washburn basin
15:48:28 <Eric> that is the steam on bottom left
15:48:46 <Eric> I believe the steam on top left is Mud Volcano area
15:49:49 <ynpvisitor74> What's center right? I saw a huge plume on the ridge earlier.
15:51:02 <Dave from B™> Eric, Mud Volcano seems correct
15:51:07 <Eric> and I think the steam middle right is the sulphur spring area
15:51:30 <Eric> actually called Crater Hills, sulpher spring is a feature there
15:51:54 <Dave from B™> 74, are you talking just barely across the Grand Canyon?
15:52:12 <BSK> GHP? something is steamy in that neighborhood... Not still steamy from Riverside, is it?
15:52:21 <Eric> I am pretty sure that is Crater Hills Dave
15:52:41 <Eric> grotto most likely BSK
15:53:00 <BSK> Ah... yes... thanks, Eric.
15:53:12 <Dave from B™> There are also tiny features close to South Rim near some it Ribbon & Clear Lake area
15:53:41 <Dave from B™> Eric, I see the Crater Hills area as wll
15:54:43 <ynpvisitor74> The ridge about 2/3 from Washburn to the distant peak upper right
15:55:33 <Dave from B™> That is Crater Hills
15:56:03 <Dave from B™> The Ribbon/Clear Lake area is in the trees far right just across the canyon
15:56:05 <ynpvisitor74> Great, thanks!
15:56:37 <Dave from B™> I wonder if you could Steamboat if this camera was turned a little to the right
15:56:45 <Dave from B™> see*
15:57:05 <ynpvisitor29> Those the tetons in the top right?
15:58:06 <Dave from B™> Most likely with MT Sheridan near Heart Lake in front of it.
15:58:33 <Eric> I have wondered that as well dave
15:58:40 <Dave from B™> wait...I'm not sure about that...seems too far right
15:58:47 <Eric> I assume from that height, you would see a winter Steamboat
15:59:32 <Dave from B™> I would think tetons would be behind Mud Volcano in this shot...not so far right
15:59:39 <Kevin L™🌵> All yours Graham
15:59:40 <Eric> This is the thermal area near the river:,-110.4760538,1780m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x534e1f2e6e829ccb:0x62f8768f236def54!8m2!3d44.6246624!4d-110.4340908
16:00:19 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if that steam area center-right of Washburn South is Violet Springs (or that's what Maps says)
16:00:29 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Eric. I've hiked that trail but there really isn't much there besides the smell:)
16:01:53 <Eric> Here is a map you can zoom around from, starting at about the same height/angle as washburn cam:,-110.4328756,192a,35y,182.05h,77.67t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x534e1f2e6e829ccb:0x62f8768f236def54!8m2!3d44.6246624!4d-110.4340908
16:02:39 <Eric> Those mountains you see in the distance are the Grand Tetons
16:02:42 <ynpvisitor29> I just went on Google Earth and checked the perspevtive from Washburn, I think Observation Peak might obstruct the line of sight to Norris
16:03:11 <Eric> Yes, but you have to remember that a Steamboat cloud could rise 1000+ ft
16:04:14 <Dave from B™> I need to hike Washburn again. It's been awhile
16:04:50 <ynpvisitor74> I've never seen such a big plume on that cam before.
16:05:29 <Dave from B™> Time to head home. Have a great evening everyone!
16:06:00 <Eric> night dave
16:06:08 <Dave from B™> GO STEAMBOAT
16:07:25 <Eric> This is looking straight toward norris from Mt. Washburn:,-110.4303192,117a,35y,247.21h,77.68t/data=!3m1!1e3
16:08:39 <Eric> I am pretty sure if you had a clear day, you could see steamboat plume from there.
16:09:00 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like a post-Grand Vent and Turban restart
16:09:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> it has to erupt first
16:09:10 <Eric> Maybe we could ask for a 3rd static cam or the north one to be repositioned :-D
16:11:50 <ynpvisitor74> It's a fire tower, right? So 360 views would be great management!
16:13:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope the Norris loggers will upload their data sooner than later
16:14:04 <ynpvisitor74> I'm off. Have a great evening everyone!
16:14:12 <ynpvisitor999®> bye 74
16:14:17 <Eric> Night 74
16:21:38 <ynpvisitor64> There is a fir lookout on my Holmes that covers Norris area
16:46:48 <ynpvisitor64> It also looks at fires
16:49:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
16:51:13 <ynpvisitor29> that's a gorgeous view right there with that reddish backdrop
16:54:37 <Eric> The reason the static cams are on washburn is due to telecommunication infrastructure also sits there.
16:55:25 <Eric> I believe a majority of the parks wireless services go through Washburn tower.
16:58:44 <ynpvisitor29> what are we seeing left center over the trees?
16:59:16 <ynpvisitor999®> Probably Grotto/Rocket or Artemisia
16:59:16 <ynpvisitor29> grotto?
17:21:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep?
17:32:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Cams on Washburn can be moved to look at fires.
17:55:09 <STS> Did the OF Webcam just go offline, or is it just me?
17:55:35 <Kevin L™🌵> OF is erupting now. Mine is working
17:55:42 <kcmule> ok here
17:55:52 <ynpvisitor999®> probably on your side. I still have image
17:56:33 <STS> Mine's working again. Must be my wonky internet
17:57:09 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't like a quiet YNM... :(
17:57:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Your have to put a quarter in after 4 hours.
17:58:39 <STS> YNM...if Steamboat follows its behavior, it should erupt within a few hours?
17:59:19 <ynpvisitor999®> most likely
17:59:36 <ynpvisitor999®> unless disturbance devil paid a visit to Norris
17:59:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave broke it.
18:00:05 <STS> What would this "disturbance devil" be? lol
18:00:34 <ynpvisitor999®> a Norris disturbance
18:00:34 <STS> Maybe it'll erupt on Christmas Day for a Christmas miracle
18:01:08 <Eric> just at 14h past average of the last 7 eruptions...I think we are still OK.
18:01:34 <ynpvisitor999®> if Steamboat averages at approximately 7d12h, there could be a New Year's Eve eruption
18:02:14 <ynpvisitor57> Well, in theory it should erupt in the next day at least. IF it follows it's behavior.
18:02:15 <STS> And Steamboat didn't go off for 14 days between a few other eruptions this summer
18:02:29 <ynpvisitor999®> because it was recovering from a disturbance
18:02:52 <STS> Do we know what that was? I'm still a newbie
18:03:05 <ynpvisitor57> A disturbance is an event that happens at least yearly at Norris
18:03:10 <ynpvisitor57> Where the chemistry changes
18:03:19 <ynpvisitor57> Springs that don't erupt start erupting
18:03:25 <ynpvisitor57> Things that were clear turn muddy and vice versa
18:03:32 <STS> Ahhh
18:03:36 <ynpvisitor57> Basically the basin loses it's mind for anywhere from days to months.
18:03:49 <ynpvisitor57> And disturbances "Zap" Steamboat.
18:03:56 <ynpvisitor57> Which means that Steamboat loses all of it's water.
18:04:08 <ynpvisitor57> So we don't like disturbances while Steamboat is active.
18:04:14 <ynpvisitor999®> that 20d interval was the result of a disturbance, those 14-18d intervals following the 20d was most likely Steamboat recovering
18:04:14 <ynpvisitor57> When it's not active, they're very fun though.
18:04:46 <ynpvisitor999®> probably more so if Echinus is active. Read that they cause some very long and large eruptions
18:04:48 <ynpvisitor57> Unfortunately you will find most people cursing them until Steamboat slows down again.
18:05:00 <ynpvisitor57> In the past yes.
18:05:11 <ynpvisitor57> But in recent Disturbances, it's hardly been enough to make Echinus roll over in it's sleep.
18:05:20 <ynpvisitor57> The exception, of course, was October-November of 2017
18:05:31 <ynpvisitor999®> mhm
18:06:44 <ynpvisitor999®> if I recall correctly, Echinus was showing signs of increasing temperature in the probably months preceding that phase, so I'm not quite sure if that could be linked to a disturbance or so (though it may have contributed)
18:07:21 <ynpvisitor57> That's fair, I'll be honest, I wasn't following that as closely as I should have. So if it did have an increasing temperature, I didn't notice.
18:07:38 <ynpvisitor57> I don't watch Norris logs frequently.
18:11:39 <ynpvisitor999®> there doesn't really seem to be a pin-pointable day for Echinus' active phase, but September 19-20 overnight seems to be the turning point
18:15:37 <ynpvisitor999®> spikes up to 60°C were happening before that night, but they increased in frequency then, resulting into (finally) an eruption on the 7th of October, another one a week later and a couple in the days following the 14th, before it took off on the 18th
18:51:25 <ynpvisitor999®> apparantly there was a mag. 1.4 ice quake in Alaska
19:49:19 <Rice> No steamboat yet. Checking in before heading to bed. Have a good night
19:49:25 <ynpvisitor999®> night Rice
19:49:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight
19:50:49 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm heading out as well. Have fun watching a grayscale basin
19:52:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight dg
20:49:21 <ynpvisitor19> OF?
