01:05:56 <ynpvisitor57> castle ie
01:41:36 <Rice> No Steamboat yet. Uhhgggg.
02:44:12 <ynpvisitor37> No Steambost
02:44:20 <ynpvisitor37> Boat*
02:53:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> uhoh now at the longest interval of the year except the disturbance ones and the lead in interval......next longest interval is over 14 days
02:54:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> I hope it breaks the record, but quitting at a tie would be oddly sweet too
02:55:45 <Corless> positive vibes
03:01:10 <ynpvisitor93> I wish people were still at the park so we could have updates!
03:03:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe Tristan will be there for orientation walk through although I dnt think Xanterra is doing tours to Norris this year
03:48:17 <Rice> Oh Boy, Earthquake messed up Steamboat, Damn it.
03:48:42 <STS> The Alaska quake?
03:48:54 <Rice> Yes, Maybe?
03:48:55 <ynpvisitor18> or other factors
03:49:20 <Rice> 1000 other factors, yes.
03:49:34 <ynpvisitor18> I wouldn't say it's messed up until we hit a 30 day interval personally
03:49:44 <Rice> To bad no boots on ground to see if it is Minoring, or just quietly steaming.
03:50:18 <STS> Right. Literally could be any multitude of reasons
03:50:32 <STS> Who knows, maybe it’s done for a bit?
03:50:39 <Rice> I am overreacting on purpose!
03:50:56 <Rice> Maybe the YNM siesmo is down, then we would never know.
03:51:12 <STS> I’m hoping it’ll go today
03:51:26 <Rice> My guess it will in the next 24hrs.
03:52:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> it hasn't broken out of its pattern statistically, its only a few hours beyond its recent max
03:52:34 <Corless> My guess is either the next 6 hours, or else if not, then within 2 weeks. Just a gut feeling from how the summer went.
03:52:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> and it does seem to have been trending longer over time a bit
05:02:25 <ynpvisitor60> Longest non/post distrubance Steamboat interval this year
05:03:21 <ynpvisitor18> could be post - disturbance, we don't know . . .
05:03:52 <Corless> only 5 hours longer than the longest, it just needs a little more time to 'warm up' :)
05:16:44 <Corless> Castle?
05:32:07 <Dave from B™> Craig, Castle is still steaming from the 0253 major
05:34:13 <Corless> ok, thanks
05:35:54 <J. Neodymium> Didn't realize neodymium was used in astronomy
05:36:08 <Corless> Dave, you must be on Geyser Gazers if you knew my first name, which Dave are you?
05:37:14 <Dave from B™> Yep...Dave Smith from Billings
05:37:32 <Corless> :thumbsup:
05:37:41 <J. Neodymium> I recognized your name from GG too
05:37:59 <Dave from B™> I don't believe we have met. Are you a frequent YNP visitor?
05:39:11 <Corless> I only go in May and October now because of so many tourists
05:39:22 <Corless> sometimes June
05:41:05 <Corless> we tried to catch a SB this JUne, but we wimped out from rain and hail, and it went off around 10PM after we left
05:42:51 <Dave from B™> Yeah, summer is crazy if you drive around much
05:43:47 <Corless> yeah, I have to compromise with my girlfriend and spend equal time looking for bears... and that gets frustrating in the busy months
05:44:04 <Dave from B™> It is hard to stick it out at SB after bad weather or the sun going down. I know how you feel.
05:45:09 <Dave from B™> Early June is a great time for bear watching (elk calving season)
05:46:29 <Corless> for sure, and now that I am retired this year, I am going to try and get up there early May when all the bears and wolves are feeding on carcasses
05:46:51 <Corless> now if SB will keep it's trend, then that too
05:47:27 <Dave from B™> FB makes it much easier to know where wildlife is being seen
05:47:40 <Dave from B™> Congrats of the retirement. What was your career?
05:47:51 <Corless> yeah, which is good and bad.... friggin wolf hunters :(
05:48:07 <Corless> worked for State of Utah, juvenile justice
05:49:06 <Dave from B™> Yeah....the wolf "assassination" is drawing lots of comments on FB...Nothing on local news however
05:50:05 <Corless> I bet... local = lots of cattle ranchers. My uncle ran one in Dillon, so I was torn on my loyalty :)
05:52:06 <Dave from B™> Yep...hunting is part of the Montana heritage even though I have never shot a gun.
05:52:24 <ynpvisitor58> looks as if bubblers are active at BH
05:52:30 <Corless> never? wow... and they didn't deport you? LOL
05:53:08 <Dave from B™> haha. Yeah, it'
05:53:42 <Dave from B™> s hard to tell someone who asks you if you hunt that you never have. they automatically think you are the enemy.
05:54:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least you fish
05:54:25 <Dave from B™> haha Graham.
05:54:31 <ynpvisitor58> ")
05:54:32 <Corless> 58, you have great eyes to be able to see that
05:54:40 <ynpvisitor58> ;)
05:54:57 <Corless> and do they give you grief if you tell them you let the fish go?
05:55:23 <ynpvisitor58> shows up on fullscreen
05:56:00 <Dave from B™> Craig, Graham was talking about the fact that I sell seafood for a living. I fish occasionally, but let's just say, live fish aren't afraid of me.
05:56:21 <Corless> ahhh..LOL
05:56:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha, you like the flying fish you can catch at the airport
05:57:29 <Corless> one of my regrets in life is that I spent most of the 80s and 90s fishing in Yellowstone almost every other weekend, and now it pains me that I didn't spend equal time in the geyser basins
05:57:57 <ynpvisitor58> bubbler stesm blowing to left
05:58:40 <Dave from B™> Craig, we all have regrets. Now that you are retired you have lots of time to gaze
05:58:52 <ynpvisitor58> now straight up
05:59:19 <Corless> except in the 80s and 90s, it was 1000x easier to get around the park, right?
05:59:45 <Dave from B™> It would be nice to see BH sorten up from its last 4 intervals which have all been around the 24 hour mark. We are at 19.5 now
06:00:18 <Dave from B™> Yeah, and lodging is getting expensive. Do you camp?
06:00:57 <ynpvisitor58> BH probably 4 to 5 hours based on last few eruptions
06:01:18 <Corless> havent camped up there for decades, but hope to get a trailer next year.... have been staying in WY, which isnt bad in May or October
06:02:11 <Dave from B™> Yeah, wwe have debated about getting a trailer as well. I'm 55 and slowing down at work and with lodging costs going higher and higher camping makes sense
06:04:44 <Corless> so do you move Alaskan fish?
06:05:41 <Dave from B™> Yes plus products from all over the world
06:05:55 <Dave from B™> Fresh Alaskan halibut and salmon are huge sellers for us
06:06:17 <ynpvisitor58> Buy a trailer that is large enough to be comfortable but small enough to fit in any Campground in Yellowstone, gives you more choices, and it's easy to pull
06:06:19 <Corless> mmmmm
06:07:01 <ynpvisitor88> :lion:
06:07:02 <Dave from B™> My trouble is then I also have to buy a pickup
06:07:06 <Corless> 58, exactly, I have been watching classified for ones around 18 to 22 feet, rear bathroom queen bed... things that matter! :)
06:07:29 <ynpvisitor58> Perfect size
06:07:47 <Corless> I have a grand cherokee with v8 that could haul a small one
06:07:52 <ynpvisitor58> Lion
06:08:52 <Dave from B™> ..
06:16:26 <Eric> Good Morning
06:16:54 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
06:18:26 <Eric> Nice and warm 9 degrees there! Must be high humidity too
06:18:55 <Eric> I see what got NO SB last night :-(
06:18:55 <Dave from B™> Yep. clouds must have kept warmth in last night
06:19:22 <Dave from B™> Yeah, I've been staring at Norris seismo for a LONG time. My wife was even teasing me last night.
06:19:35 <Eric> 6h past the longest of the last 24 eruptions.
06:20:03 <Corless> this one is historic... I may end up sitting here all day haha
06:20:17 <ynpvisitor58> -5 near Thermopolis
06:21:31 <Eric> ohhh, that's not right...my algorithm was putting the 14+ day ones as doubles.
06:21:53 <ynpvisitor18> I am ready for a change so we can learn more.
06:22:19 <ynpvisitor58> Dave, let us know when you will not be looking at the seismo
06:22:32 <Eric> I was fine with the extreme boringness of average 7 day intervals!
06:22:34 <Dave from B™> haha, Joe
06:22:35 <Corless> 6h past the longest after the disturbance, though
06:22:49 <ynpvisitor58> we will then know when to look :)
06:22:52 <Eric> Yep
06:24:42 <Corless> 6 day or 8 day would be best, so I can plan visits when it is in the middle of the week instead of weekends
06:35:38 <Eric> radar doesn't look bad for weather today and I can even see breaks of blue sky in West
06:36:22 <STS> Partly cloudy and a high of 23!
06:41:27 <Eric> Is that Wests weather prediction?
06:42:04 <Dave from B™> We are supposed to be in the 40s for 4 straight days starting Sunday
06:44:06 <Corless> what would it typically be in Billings?
06:44:47 <Dave from B™> I would say average highs this time of year would be low 30s
06:45:07 <Corless> oh, I would have guessed 20s
06:46:08 <STS> I usually check weather.com
06:46:28 <Corless> we're 27 right now in Northern Utah, high expected of 30
06:47:44 <STS> It's gonna be a bit below average in my neck of the world
06:48:18 <Corless> where is that?
06:48:26 <STS> Eastern South Dakota
06:48:26 <ynpvisitor88> 70 at my house with a high today of 75! :sun:
06:48:45 <Corless> 88, where?
06:48:54 <Dave from B™> Go away Kevin or Mike J!:)
06:49:06 <ynpvisitor88> Cocoa Beach Florida!
06:49:17 <Dave from B™> nice
06:49:32 <Dave from B™> What are you doing in here...go to the beach!
06:49:51 <Corless> 88, you live there or visiting?
06:49:57 <ynpvisitor88> Operating the cam! Something I love to do!
06:50:10 <STS> I'd be going to the beach every day if I lived near one!
06:50:53 <Dave from B™> STS, that's a land locked person talking. I can relate.
06:51:23 <ynpvisitor88> I live here, retired in August, moved here from Virginia, a little further away from the park but that won't stop me!
06:51:31 <STS> Born and raised and still living in the farmland and plains of the midwest
06:51:54 <STS> Though I am a bit more "urban" here in Sioux Falls
06:52:01 <Eric> hahaha
06:52:02 <Corless> congrats, from a newly retiree also.... life is better than I had expected
06:52:20 <Eric> Your photos make me jealous Corless :-P
06:52:31 <ynpvisitor88> Born and raised in the Northeast - but have been a wanderer all my life...
06:52:36 <Corless> Eric, you're Eric Z? thanks
06:52:42 <Eric> Yep
06:53:00 <Eric> I want to retire like you are doing it!
06:53:21 <ynpvisitor88> Retiring from a high stress corporate job - life is good but it sure is an adjustment!
06:53:51 <Corless> it was a busy fun summer, fishing almost every day. and mtn biking a ton
06:53:53 <Dave from B™> I'm jealous...slowing down is all I can do right now
06:54:21 <ynpvisitor88> I miss my Virginia mountains!
06:54:47 <STS> I wish I had mountains...:(
06:55:09 <Corless> I love being next to the mountains, but getting older(57) I feel colder and want to be somewhere warmer. Tough choices
06:55:15 <Mike J> Just saw my name used in almost vain. Actually, only 56 here in Phoenix today
06:55:21 <Dave from B™> that I can do...Beartooths right our my window at work
06:55:25 <Mike J> Depth of winter
06:55:52 <STS> My dad is the opposite. When he retires, he wants to leave the hot, humid summers and move to the Bighorns
06:55:58 <ynpvisitor88> I don't have them now either! But I have all the time in the world, pack up and go!
06:56:10 <Dave from B™> Sorry, Mike J. Someone who talking about winter warmth and it is usually you or Kevin.
06:56:19 <ynpvisitor58> I don't miss my West Virginia mountains...Rocky Mountains are much more exciting
06:56:31 <Mike J> Yeah, Dave. I saw the context. Would have thought the same thing myself
06:57:13 <Mike J> Hey, here's a real warm weather vs. cold weather question. What is your thermostat set on right now?
06:57:15 <Dave from B™> For most northerners winter vacations usually mean get me somewhere warm. That is why my wife and I are going to Hawaii in March
06:57:20 <Mike J> Here in Phoenix, we've set ours at 72
06:57:23 <Corless> ideal retirement would be summers in the Rockies, winters on a South American beach :)
06:57:28 <Kat> 58 True but better than none!
06:57:41 <ynpvisitor58> mine is set at 66
06:57:42 <STS> Thermo here in Sioux Falls is at 70
06:57:43 <Corless> mine is set at 68 degrees F
06:57:51 <Dave from B™> Mike 70 during the day. 64 at night
06:58:07 <Kat> I think it's off
06:58:12 <STS> I forgot to turn mine off last night...oops
06:58:39 <Mike J> Also, my wife and I think the house is always cold.
06:58:41 <Kat> Sun trying to break through!
06:59:10 <Mike J> I'm a little surprised there are any 70s.
07:00:30 <ynpvisitor97> My thermo in northeast is set tom70
07:00:48 <ynpvisitor18> mine is set at 55, but I use a people heater near me
07:01:27 <ynpvisitor58> Depression
07:02:16 <ynpvisitor58> the geyser not feeling :)
07:02:32 <Kat> Haha
07:02:44 <Corless> had good shadows momentarily
07:03:12 <Dave from B™> I love the frosted trees
07:03:22 <Kat> Me too
07:04:12 <Dave from B™> Morning Linda
07:04:35 <LindaG> Good morning everyone! Lol I changed my name to that accidentally.
07:04:56 <Corless> morning Linda
07:05:09 <Kat> Nice :)
07:05:24 <LindaG> The sun looks cool over by daisy
07:05:46 <STS> It's been so foggy lately
07:05:57 <STS> It's nice to have a relatively clear day
07:06:23 <Dave from B™> wow..what is that behind the trees?
07:06:25 <Corless> cool view
07:06:31 <ynpvisitor58> Riverside
07:06:46 <Dave from B™> Yep
07:06:53 <Kat> Looks like
07:07:26 <STS> JoeN just put entered it
07:07:41 <STS> And I didn't proofread before I hit "enter"
07:08:48 <Kat> Love this light
07:09:29 <Corless> me too, I'll take spotty clouds over clear any day, photos look better, IMO
07:09:50 <Kat> Agrred
07:09:53 <Betty> morning all
07:10:08 <Corless> morning, Betty
07:10:10 <Kat> Agreed*

07:11:08 <Betty> hi Corless, Kat, STS, 58 :-)
07:11:26 <Corless> I dont watch this enough, is that Daisy erupting to the right?
07:11:27 <Kat> :)
07:11:28 <Dave from B™> Good evening Betty

07:12:29 <STS> Omg, I still have to do that too
07:12:36 <STS> Hahaha
07:12:37 <Betty> looks like Grand to me
07:12:57 <Betty> hi BSK
07:13:26 <ynpvisitor58> I paint L and R on my shoes :)
07:13:33 <STS> Oooh, it's getting steamy/foggy again
07:14:48 <Betty> Steamboat needs its time, Or Dave broke it
07:15:45 <ynpvisitor58> The problem is Dave is watching the seismo :)
07:15:54 <Corless> it's still unthawing
07:15:58 <Betty> OH NOOOO
07:16:19 <STS> A watched kettle never boils :lol:
07:16:27 <Betty> my words
07:16:32 <Dave from B™> Hey, we don't need to teach all the newbies here that I get to be blamed for everything!:)
07:16:45 <Betty> :lol:
07:16:51 <ynpvisitor58> Lion
07:17:09 <STS> Dave breaks the geysers...thanks Betty :lol:
07:17:20 <ynpvisitor58> or not
07:17:25 <Betty> :thumbsup: yw :thumbsup:
07:17:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> we are out of Dave's pediction window tho, so it can go
07:18:01 <Kat> Soon?
07:18:11 <Betty> hi Graham
07:18:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello
07:18:33 <STS> We shall see. It's had 9-10 day intervals in the past
07:19:15 <ynpvisitor58> it had a nice roar
07:19:17 <STS> But who knows. Those were back in the 80s
07:19:29 <Kat> It did 58
07:19:54 <Betty> it´s time for Christmas market, so I will be the sacrifice for the next 3 hrs. bbl
07:20:25 <STS> It'll probably happen today. Someone commented the AK quake may have affected its pattern
07:20:39 <STS> But what do I know
07:20:55 <ynpvisitor58> Lion now
07:21:28 <ynpvisitor58> nope again
07:21:48 <Kat> Lion is playing with you!
07:21:59 <ynpvisitor58> it is :)
07:23:53 <ynpvisitor58> I'm going to quit looking... I think I have the Dave disease
07:24:11 <Kat> :)
07:25:30 <Kat> So foggy/steamy
07:25:43 <LindaG> Hi kat
07:26:02 <Kat> Hey Linda! How are you?
07:26:38 <LindaG> I'm good!
07:27:04 <STS> Amazing how quick conditions can change
07:27:09 <Kat> Hopefully the basin will clear for you this afternoon!
07:27:42 <LindaG> How r u? Hope it does clear!
07:28:11 <Kat> I'm good! Coming up north fpr Chrstmas.
07:28:21 <Kat> for*
07:30:34 <LindaG> Connecticut?
07:30:55 <Kat> No Rehoboth Beach
07:33:13 <LindaG> Not that far from me via the ferry.
07:33:24 <Kat> Right!
07:34:00 <Kat> Have never spent Christmas without seeing my son!
07:34:29 <Kat> Light is coming!
07:34:31 <Dave from B™> Wow. lots of easterners here today. I admire everyone who lives so far from YNP and manages to get there. I'm only a little over 3 hours from Norris.
07:34:36 <J. Neodymium> I've been to Rehoboth a few times.
07:35:11 <Kat> I try to get to YNP twice a year for years!
07:35:36 <LindaG> You'll have a great time, take the bait to cape May and check out the christmas decorations
07:35:43 <LindaG> Or boat
07:36:04 <Kat> Rehoboth is where I hail from originally.
07:36:41 <Kat> Yeah I think a boat would be better than bait HA
07:36:59 <Kat> J. where are you?
07:37:24 <LindaG> 🙄⛴
07:37:41 <Kat> Dave if I lived that close I would be there all the time!
07:38:39 <LindaG> Seriously if be there all the time too. It's a hike from NJ. Getting to the plane is the biggest hassle.
07:39:07 <LindaG> *I'd
07:39:19 <Dave from B™> Life gets in the way. My wife and I both have jobs that don't allow for a lot of time away.
07:39:21 <Kat> Do'nt you go from Philly?
07:39:27 <LindaG> Dave I need a new keyboard. 😉
07:39:35 <Kat> Don't *
07:39:42 <Dave from B™> haha LindaG
07:40:01 <Dave from B™> All sold out. I wasn't prepared for Black Friday.
07:40:11 <Kat> Me- it's a the operator!
07:40:14 <LindaG> Yes Philly and Newark. Newark the last time, stayed up north with friend.
07:40:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds like you got his last one Linda.
07:41:21 <ynpvisitor58> Lion now!!!
07:41:37 <STS> Are we sure 58? ;)
07:41:44 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, ⌨😊
07:41:46 <ynpvisitor58> no
07:41:47 <STS> It's played you a few times
07:42:02 <ynpvisitor58> yes it has :)
07:42:38 <Kat> Yeah!
07:42:53 <ynpvisitor58> I keep forgeting ~ 1 ans 1/2 hours after ini
07:43:08 <ynpvisitor58> ans= and
07:43:41 <STS> Last OF must have been a long
07:44:14 <ynpvisitor58> it was
07:44:18 <Kat> It was - I updated
07:44:19 <Eric> I think everyone has the PEBCAK issue today!
07:44:31 <ynpvisitor58> :)
07:44:33 <Dave from B™> C'mon Steamboat....you're killing me...please erupt
07:44:40 <Eric> OF
07:45:13 <Eric> looks like a rocket launch :-D
07:51:16 <Kat> So pretty looking East
07:51:17 <LindaG> Ah human tracks
07:52:08 <Kat> Yep
07:52:44 <Dave from B™> ..
07:53:13 <Kat> Or maybe the bison were walking the boards!
07:53:16 <Dave from B™> Has anyone checked out the adventurers FB page. I wonder how they like YNP in winter now.:)
07:53:41 <Kat> ??
07:54:01 <ynpvisitor58> I knew you did not quit...SB would have erupted :)
07:54:24 <ynpvisitor97> I have t looked since promise of snowman. Can't imagine the change in temperatures.
07:54:45 <ynpvisitor97> Kat, a family from Florida is here for the winter.
07:55:48 <Corless> shadows are back, nice
07:55:50 <LindaG> Sorry 97 is me im on two different devices getting ready for the day.
07:57:04 <ynpvisitor58> I remember my first year in the Rockies after moving from Florida ... I frose to death at least two or three times :)
07:57:38 <ynpvisitor58> that was in 1972
07:57:42 <Dave from B™> haha Joe. I liken it to me moving to the Deep South in summer with 95% humidity
07:57:54 <ynpvisitor58> :)
07:57:57 <Dave from B™> But that will NEVER happen
07:58:23 <Kevin L™🌵> 😎🌴
07:58:43 <LindaG> I can't take the cold and I can't take the heat and humidity. Might have to join Kevin. Arizona looks nice.
07:58:50 <Kat> Oh, I'll have to try and find their FB
07:59:17 <LindaG> They posted on Katie facebook page.
07:59:39 <Kat> Oh, I remember seeing that!Thanks!
08:00:17 <Kat> Nice color - its going to clear - my prediction!
08:00:52 <LindaG> Hope so! I'm ready when you are.
08:01:02 <ynpvisitor58> i'll bet Florida Mom and kids are questioning Dads sanity about now :)
08:01:10 <Kat> Take it girl and have a good one!
08:01:25 <LindaG> You too!
08:02:21 <Dave from B™> Everyone from MT snowbirds in Arizona. that will never happen to me. It is too far from water and too barren.
08:02:45 <ynpvisitor58> Grotto area steam, or gream as Betty called it
08:03:39 <LindaG> That's what stops me I live by ocean, i think it would be way too dry
08:03:47 <LindaG> Daisy?
08:04:33 <LindaG> I think so
08:04:38 <ynpvisitor58> there is always a chance of "ocean front property in Arizona"
08:04:47 <Dave from B™> okay George Strait
08:05:10 <ynpvisitor58> :)
08:05:55 <LindaG> Do you agree on daisy?
08:06:21 <BSK> Oh, that contrast! I do agree on Daisy.
08:06:30 <LindaG> Thx
08:06:32 <ynpvisitor58> yep
08:08:41 <Dave from B™> I wish Castle would stop spewing steam
08:08:42 <ynpvisitor58> No iy was sprinkler
08:08:59 <ynpvisitor58> iy=it
08:09:12 <Eric> If you want perfect weather, it's hard to beat coastal southern california :-D
08:09:26 <Eric> However, you have to be able to afford it :-P
08:09:44 <Eric> Not hot, hot cold, mostly sunny
08:10:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Bring your marshmallows...
08:10:34 <Dave from B™> My future winter journeys will be 2-4 weeks...hope I can afford Florida, Hawaii, St. Thomas
08:12:07 <LindaG> I have a friend in San Diego, I've been meaning to visit. 😊
08:12:12 <ynpvisitor58> Daisy in `20 min
08:12:27 <ynpvisitor58> ~20 min
08:13:21 <LindaG> Missed it
08:13:46 <Eric> Daisy ~10 minutes ago....
08:13:54 <Eric> I am psychic in reverse.
08:14:04 <Eric> I see into the past!
08:16:46 <LindaG> Lake looks nice
08:17:06 <Kevin L™🌵> My Brother lives just north of San Diego. WAY to crowded for me.
08:17:54 <ynpvisitor45> more crowded than Vegas?
08:18:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes by far.
08:18:48 <Kat> OK, need to get up and do something or at least act like it! :) Have a good afternoon! Good luck Dave...
08:18:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Vegas is too crowded for me. I live right on the edge of the desert.
08:21:15 <LindaG> Is that a storm brewing out there with all those dark clouds
08:21:59 <STS> No storms
08:22:06 <STS> May just be dark fog
08:22:20 <LindaG> 👍
08:22:37 <BSK> I'd say storm
08:22:55 <STS> Think so? I'm checking the local radar and it shows nothing
08:22:56 <BSK> storm to the north and may pass north and not hit the UGB
08:22:58 <Dave from B™> OK...I'm going downstairs and won't be looking at the seismo. Hope it helps
08:23:08 <LindaG> I guess we'll find out
08:23:11 <BSK> Thanks for taking one for the team, Dave.
08:23:50 <LindaG> Are all eyes glued to seismo?
08:24:19 <STS> Did someone say there was a "roar" earlier?
08:26:01 <ynpvisitor58> Daisy was at 0544 on the over night capture so 1003 is too early Daisy soon
08:28:43 <LindaG> I'll keep it in view, something over there went off around 10
08:29:28 <LindaG> I put as daisy, so I can change if wrong
08:29:43 <ynpvisitor58> It was sprinkler like now
08:30:03 <ynpvisitor58> no problem
08:31:12 <ynpvisitor58> Daisy will be humoggous at this temp and humidity
08:31:33 <LindaG> Ok ill change when it happens
08:32:02 <ynpvisitor58> I have been wrong before :)
08:32:13 <Corless> lighting is gorgeous now
08:33:22 <BSK> sure is!
08:33:27 <LindaG> Lion
08:33:52 <ynpvisitor58> Beautiful
08:34:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Very pretty morning.
08:35:07 <Casey> Morning everybody
08:35:12 <STS> Good morning
08:35:32 <Corless> wow, what a view now
08:35:34 <STS> I agree with the earlier comment about the pretty frosted trees
08:38:12 <Eric> Hi Casey
08:39:29 <Casey> aurum?
08:39:36 <Casey> maybe not
08:40:24 <LindaG> Not sure Casey of always blocks
08:41:14 <ynpvisitor58> I thought it was but as linda said OF blocked it
08:41:16 <Kevin L™🌵> It would be big on static. Didn't see it there.
08:42:49 <ynpvisitor58> tttttttttttttttttttttttttttthere it is
08:43:24 <Eric> that looked likke nice vault steam
08:44:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> still not seeing it, no seismo wiggles
08:44:31 <ynpvisitor58> Daisy
08:44:37 <STS> Fingers crossed for this afternoon
08:46:14 <LindaG> I updated daisy
08:46:54 <LindaG> To get back to Aurum I didn't see water did anti e?
08:47:17 <LindaG> Anyone?
08:48:19 <Dave from B™> That didn't work
08:48:39 <LindaG> Bee would be nice in this light
08:48:44 <Kevin L™🌵> I didn't
08:49:00 <STS> Alright - time for chores, errands, and the gym (blurgh) Hopefully SB will go off soon
08:49:30 <ynpvisitor58> I did not see warer nor anything on static
08:50:45 <Dave from B™> Please use "?" if you are not sure about an eruption.
08:54:02 <LindaG> Such a pretty view
08:55:53 <Corless> December 7, 2005, the morning temperature at Yellowstone’s Northeast Entrance dropped to a frigid -33°F (-36°C), making it one of the coldest December 7ths on record at that location, and yet still not as cold as the coldest recorded temperature in the park at -66°F (-54°C).
08:56:33 <Corless> -66F holy smokes...
08:57:08 <Dave from B™> after -25F it really doesn't matter
08:57:18 <BSK> was -66 in 1989? February that year was BRUTAL
08:58:11 <Corless> how do the ungulates handle that?
08:58:15 <ynpvisitor18> where do you check for those temps?
08:58:34 <Corless> I just saw that on the YNP FB posts
08:59:06 <Corless> https://www.facebook.com/YellowstoneNPS/photos/a.480329805315712/2437947862887220/?type=3&theater
09:00:18 <J. Neodymium> Eruptions at -66 would likely result in immediate ice/snow formation - that'd be interesting to see, provided one's eyelids weren't frozen shut
09:00:43 <Dave from B™> I believe Logan Pass west of Great Falls is coldest in Montana history at around -70
09:00:56 <ynpvisitor45> strange to see Daisy in GT 2 time with same time.
09:02:38 <LindaG> I entered once and then updated, did someone else put in also
09:02:59 <Corless> JoeN
09:03:16 <LindaG> Ah ill delete mine
09:03:22 <ynpvisitor45> but why did the second one show as secondary?
09:04:00 <LindaG> I deleted mine
09:05:00 <Eric> It probably just had not combined them yet
09:05:19 <Eric> You shouldn't have to delete yours Linda!
09:05:39 <LindaG> Oh ok, too late
09:06:39 <Eric> oh well, it's all good now :-D
09:16:32 <ynpvisitor58> OK, I have to leave for awhile, enjoy the geysers without a perpetual nag about :)
09:17:03 <BSK> Little blip on siesmo...
09:18:01 <STS> YAY
09:18:04 <LindaG> Sure is, get ready
09:18:12 <Dave from B™> That's Bill....He took a defibulator to SB
09:18:17 <ynpvisitor58> It haD TWO OF THOSE THE OTHER DAY, I WONDER WHAT THEY ARE?
09:18:17 <ynpvisitor60> YAY
09:18:35 <ynpvisitor60> Maybe strong minors
09:18:39 <Dave from B™> Why are we yaying?
09:18:54 <ynpvisitor58> sorry for the shout
09:18:57 <ynpvisitor60> I know there was some debate as to minors showing up on seismo
09:19:02 <STS> Little signs are better than nothing
09:19:09 <Dave from B™> Probably nothing more than snow falling off the museum roof or NPS driving in the parking lot
09:19:22 <ynpvisitor60> Could also be snow coaches or groomers?
09:19:43 <STS> Only time will tell I guess
09:19:44 <Dave from B™> 60, that makes even more sense since opening is only 8 days away
09:20:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Blip on YNM
09:23:42 <LindaG> Old faithful is messing with me.
09:24:30 <LindaG> OF
09:24:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice contrast
09:24:58 <LindaG> Lovely against the dark gray
09:25:45 <STS> OF entered
09:25:53 <STS> That's a pretty white
09:26:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Statice was great
09:27:32 <STS> There's another blip on YNM
09:27:35 <LindaG> My delay missed the first static pic, it flashed before my eyes
09:27:42 <ynpvisitor10> double blip on seismo, wasn't there a very similar looking thing a few days ago?
09:27:57 <ynpvisitor5> very
09:28:25 <ynpvisitor5> same size, same time apart
09:28:39 <ynpvisitor10> proof that the deep state is faking the seismo
09:29:08 <LindaG> Oh let's hope bee goes off with thay gray backdrop too.
09:30:50 <Rice> Bill is out there jumping up and down, laughing his !@#$% off thinking about all of us Drooling!
09:31:16 <ynpvisitor10> https://www.isthisthingon.org/Yellowstone/wrapper.php?file=YNM_SHZ_WY_01-20181204.png
09:31:24 <ynpvisitor10> that was the double blip on the 4th
09:32:42 <ynpvisitor10> strange, I think that rules out snow falling off trees...it's either human or geological
09:33:09 <ynpvisitor5> It's almost the same time of day
09:35:01 <LindaG> Lion
09:39:15 <LindaG> Hi betty
09:39:31 <Betty> hi Linda
09:41:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Indy!
09:41:40 <Betty> .
09:41:40 <Betty> .
09:41:41 <Betty> .
09:41:41 <Betty> .
09:41:43 <LindaG> Indy
09:41:44 <ynpvisitor114> somebody stops by on lunch break, slams door behind them, uses restroom, leaves and slams door again.
09:41:48 <Eric> bhi anyone
09:42:08 <ynpvisitor114> in ref to seismo... :-)
09:42:11 <Betty> hi Kevin and Eric
09:42:13 <Eric> I like BHI and I cannot lie!
09:42:17 <Eric> Hi Betty
09:42:37 <Eric> Other brothers might deny...
09:42:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Do we need a text?
09:42:56 <LindaG> Sent
09:42:57 <ynpvisitor54> nope
09:42:58 <ynpvisitor54> just got one
09:42:59 <Eric> got the text
09:43:01 <BSK> Just got it, so someone sent it.
09:43:13 <Kevin L™🌵> got it
09:44:06 <Steph> Thanks for text!
09:45:06 <Kitt> yay indy
09:45:15 <Kitt> thanks for text
09:46:00 <STS> Nothing new on YNM
09:46:32 <Kitt> YNM?
09:46:56 <STS> Seismo for Steamboat
09:47:02 <Betty> norris seismo
09:47:13 <Kitt> oh ok
09:48:33 <Kitt> I think Yellowstone is warmer than Worland
09:48:53 <Kitt> I hear roads are dry outside of Worland
09:49:12 <Kitt> we still have patches of snow and ice on the streets in town
09:49:27 <BSK> Oddly enough, its warmer there than in Missoula today. It's clear and sunny here (beautiful) but 14 degrees at present.
09:50:21 <Kitt> I think it is about 18 degrees here
09:50:34 <J. Neodymium> HA! Fooled Beehive AGAIN!!
09:51:26 <Ben VL> I just hope the seismo blips are not messing up SB, or SB having problems starting...
09:53:40 <Ben VL> And it looks like all the Norris temp. loggers stopped sending data on the 27th or 28th last month
09:53:56 <ynpvisitor999®> probably connectivity issues
09:54:20 <Kitt> Boom
09:54:23 <ynpvisitor999®> as it would be highly unlikely for all loggers to fail on one day
09:54:27 <Kitt> Yay bee
09:54:28 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
09:54:39 <Ben VL> I would really like to see some better infrastructure out there...
09:54:58 <Ben VL> Even during the summer, no cell service can be kind of a pain
09:55:10 <J. Neodymium> Who ordered this wind direction?
09:55:31 <Kitt> I did
09:55:36 <ynpvisitor54> Ben VL, The upgrades to Washburn tower "might" help, not likely but might
09:55:40 <Kitt> Toward the cam would have been annoying
09:55:51 <J. Neodymium> True
09:56:05 <J. Neodymium> At least OF is cool
09:56:09 <ynpvisitor54> You can get cell service with a booster pretty close to Norris but it's all about line of sight
09:56:56 <ynpvisitor75> Ah, the Great and Powerful Hive.
09:56:57 <ynpvisitor18> cell service in the villages is fine with me - I don't necessarily want it everywhere else
09:58:00 <J. Neodymium> It's weird being anywhere without cell service (and Web/data). I hit a few spots in Vermont trying to find a place where I had to rely on *gasp* ROAD SIGNS!
09:58:23 <Kitt> another daytime Beehive
09:58:25 <J. Neodymium> And I love maps!
09:58:28 <Kitt> so nice
09:59:20 <Kitt> have a good day
09:59:22 <Corless> sweet, got back just in time
10:00:23 <ynpvisitor999®> I see Lion had a bit of a difficulty to get started with that 1h33m interval
10:02:04 <LindaG> Of is being a pest today
10:03:27 <LindaG> LC
10:05:19 <J. Neodymium> Looks like LC going big
10:06:36 <Ben VL> My main concern is having GT access in Norris
10:07:08 <ynpvisitor54> Sat Phone ;)
10:07:16 <ynpvisitor54> They're pretty cheap I hear
10:07:22 <Ben VL> really?
10:07:54 <Corless> I don't get GT updates anywhere in the park. I have to remember to update at the hotel before going in.
10:08:15 <Betty> same here
10:08:15 <Rice> huh
10:08:33 <Betty> I´m blind in the park
10:08:46 <Steph> Me too. When we come up in May, I'm going to pick all your brains about it.
10:09:00 <Corless> I will get texts or voicemails sometimes at certain spots, but that's it
10:09:03 <Rice> What is a Saturday Phone for????? ( sarchasim)
10:09:05 <ynpvisitor18> I dunno, I like to slow down and not be connected. Don't need to know everything instantaneously
10:09:17 <Betty> lol, Rice
10:09:49 <ynpvisitor18> we did fine before GT :)
10:09:52 <Corless> 18, me too.... GT is the only thing I wish I could get there
10:10:11 <Betty> something different to decide not to get info or not be able to get info :-p
10:10:11 <Steph> Corless, exactly! Me too. GT FTW!
10:10:33 <ynpvisitor24> My hubby is on Verizon and gets great reception most places. I'm T-Mobile and nothing.
10:11:39 <LindaG> I have veeizon and get good reception, att not so much
10:12:24 <ynpvisitor54> Verizon is the only reliable carrier in the park
10:12:34 <ynpvisitor54> At the moment
10:13:26 <Kevin L™🌵> My Brother had T Mobile. He was able to use it on GH between Depression and Aurum. No where else.
10:14:22 <Betty> that was a difficult place this year near Aurum
10:14:23 <ynpvisitor24> I had signal at Grand for about 5 minutes in June.
10:15:21 <Corless> solar flares LOL
10:16:18 <ynpvisitor24> At least I got to update GT
10:16:40 <Betty> that´s not bad, 24
10:17:23 <LindaG> In southwrn new jersey we have a few dead spots. Which ia bizarre. Rumor has it they are being blocked by military. Im close to a lot of bases.
10:17:27 <Eric> I take a pay as you go verizon phone into the park with me. Activated for 30 days.
10:18:16 <Eric> If you are spending hundreds of dollars to enjoy the park, $40 more to have some cell service is a no brainer for me.
10:18:17 <ynpvisitor24> The guy to my left hand signal but my daughter to the right did not.
10:18:18 <Steph> Eric, me too, but I still can't always get service. Is that unusual?
10:18:54 <Eric> You should have fine verizon service at the UGB, canyon, lake and mammoth
10:19:11 <Eric> get outside those areas and you pretty much get nothing.
10:19:28 <ynpvisitor24> I certainly plan on the burner option if I'm going without my husband again.
10:19:33 <Steph> OK. We call it our Yellowstone Phone. I hope it will work in 2018.
10:19:35 <ynpvisitor54> Slough Creek Campground is a hidden cell service spot ;)
10:21:57 <ynpvisitor24> LindaG, I read something about your dead zones and the military.Security something
10:22:32 <ynpvisitor999®> you mean jammers?
10:23:11 <LindaG> I guess that's what it is they are jamming the lines
10:23:33 <LindaG> Jamming lines
10:23:34 <ynpvisitor24> Yes, but the reason is security.
10:23:45 <LindaG> Oh definitely
10:25:02 <Corless> I am on Walmarts plan that piggybacks Verizon. Maybe I just havent checked my phone enough in any of those other places besides at UGB.
10:25:34 <LindaG> Big verizon tower over by lake/fishing bridge
10:26:07 <ynpvisitor24> The article I read was about difficulties of school children to submit work online in different places
10:26:20 <LindaG> I've picked it up in Hayden valley in certain. Spots
10:27:00 <LindaG> Gets tougher further north you go
10:27:28 <ynpvisitor54> Verizon has coverage from top of washburn all the way to mud volcano
10:29:28 <LindaG> Wall street tanking again down 500
10:30:43 <ynpvisitor999®> guess we're heading towards a crisis again
10:31:11 <BSK> I saw it coming. We took money out to pay off remainder of house mortgage and buy a pickup. I said "let's sell some off while it's high." Our investment manager concurred. So we did.
10:31:14 <LindaG> Time to go camping in YNP permanently
10:33:26 <Corless> I turned off my trading screen 5 minutes after I opened it this morning
10:34:21 <Eric> Smart BSK
10:34:35 <BSK> I've been telling my husband not to even look. We've sold as much as we are going to for the short term, so we just have to ride it out.
10:34:48 <Eric> I stuff my 2$ in my mattress, it hopes that it will breed.
10:35:24 <Eric> All I ever see is more lint :-(
10:36:03 <ynpvisitor18> put it where you put coat hangers- they multiply :D
10:36:08 <LindaG> The younger you are the more time to wait for rebound.
10:36:26 <Corless> I decided to stop trying to second guess, and for the last 2 years or so, just left most my positions alone, trading small amount on the dips and peaks
10:36:34 <Steph> But not in the washer, you'll only get $1 back, like losing socks.
10:37:00 <Steph> That comment was for Eric and the $2 in the mattress...
10:37:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
10:37:27 <J. Neodymium> Bison
10:39:07 <LindaG> Seriously where do those socks go?
10:39:27 <LindaG> Of pesky
10:41:26 <LindaG> Looks like bee bubblers still
10:41:55 <Dave from B™> All money found in the laundry has alwasy been mine since I do the laundry
10:42:10 <Dave from B™> That way kids learn to empty their pockets
10:44:47 <ynpvisitor24> That's smart, Dave
10:48:24 <ynpvisitor999®> oh hi OF
10:50:05 <LindaG> It started 12:47, couldnt enter
10:50:47 <STS> I got it
10:51:22 <LindaG> Ok
10:51:45 <ynpvisitor999®> short-ish interval for a long
10:51:57 <ynpvisitor999®> but I like it
10:52:35 <STS> 1 hour 24 minutes is usually the start of the window when NPS predicts.
10:52:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope it shortens its long intervals a bit further, maybe all the way back to 1992 frequency or better
10:53:21 <STS> Monday it didn't go off for almost 2 hours
10:53:54 <Steph> Well, gotta run to the appliance parts store.... Have a great afternoon watching geysers! I'll keep my fingers crossed for YNM!
10:54:05 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Steph
10:54:30 <LindaG> Bye steph
10:55:24 <ynpvisitor999®> I've seen a few intervals surpassing 2 hours. Luckily the last one was a few months ago minimum
10:55:29 <Corless> I opened the YNM on my phone when I went to the store earlier.
10:58:17 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't like seeing a flat YNM. Hope it goes today
10:58:42 <STS> What does everyone think of the two blips earlier?
10:58:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Doubt it's Steamboat-related
10:59:11 <ynpvisitor24> It's pretty nutty that we are hovering over a seismic trace.
11:00:06 <ynpvisitor999®> I doubt anyone would've thought that before March 15
11:00:18 <ynpvisitor54> I think everyone's pretty excited because this would be the most Steamboat eruptions in a year since good records have been kept/possible
11:00:54 <Ben VL> What do you do for entertainment?
11:00:58 <Eric> Sorry Steamboat is limited to 29 eruptions/year it's in the NPS rules.
11:01:15 <Ben VL> Shows seismogram
11:01:26 <Ben VL> It updates every 10 minutes!
11:01:35 <Ben VL> WHooo
11:01:47 <Corless> LOL
11:01:57 <Eric> Hey, if there was a camera at Norris, we would all be watching that too :-D
11:02:14 <Eric> We only watch the seismo because we can't watch anything else.
11:02:26 <Corless> I ran into a friend at the store, and I didn't dare look at my phone cuz I didn't want to try and explain it.
11:02:26 <Ben VL> Just you wait until there is a blip... then things get real interesting
11:02:26 <ynpvisitor999®> even a static over at Norris would do fine
11:02:58 <Ben VL> Oh yeah, a static would be great
11:03:02 <ynpvisitor24> If there was a camera at Norris, people would get why we are watching.
11:03:22 <ynpvisitor54> A food truck would be even better ;)
11:03:23 <Ben VL> I would like more temp loggers, tho
11:03:32 <Corless> I wondered about a gofundme for a SB camera
11:03:37 <Ben VL> perhaps a portal to the parking lot
11:03:58 <Corless> LOL @ portal
11:04:02 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd like temperature loggers which [i]actually[/i] upload their data to a satellite
11:04:12 <Ben VL> ^
11:04:17 <Betty> Aurum
11:04:19 <Betty> .
11:04:20 <Betty> .
11:04:27 <Ben VL> And one on cistern and the spring just to the nortn of SB
11:04:38 <Ben VL> north*
11:04:40 <LindaG> Aurum?
11:04:42 <Eric> I wouldn't mind a zoomed camera from Washburn toward norris
11:04:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Emerald, Ben?
11:04:53 <Ben VL> no
11:05:06 <Betty> on static too
11:05:09 <Ben VL> one sec
11:05:34 <STS> Emerald Spring would make sense
11:06:02 <Corless> Abondoned Cone Vent?
11:06:10 <Eric> has there ever been a logger on emerald?
11:06:42 <Eric> I think Bill looked at Abondoned Cone Corless
11:06:44 <Corless> There was a post in GG about that spring uphill form SB
11:07:07 <Ben VL> Emerald would be great, but this too: https://www.google.com/maps/place/44%C2%B043'27.8%22N+110%C2%B042'10.0%22W/@44.724389,-110.7033813,217m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d44.724388!4d-110.702785
11:07:11 <Eric> Yep, that post was about that feature
11:08:01 <Ben VL> Would love to see what that one does
11:08:02 <STS> The link took me to Russia...
11:08:04 <STS> lol
11:08:04 <Eric> that is abandoned cone Ben
11:08:11 <Corless> ummm, Ben, your map is of Russia :)
11:08:18 <Eric> '27.8%22N+110%C2%B042'10.0%22W/@44.724389,-110.7033813,217m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d44.724388!4d-110.702785
11:08:24 <Ben VL> wat??
11:08:31 <Eric> https://www.google.com/maps/place/44%C2%B043'27.8%22N+110%C2%B042'10.0%22W/@44.7243889,-110.7035074,272m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d44.724388!4d-110.702785
11:08:38 <Eric> dang....mine is broken too
11:08:40 <ynpvisitor999®> after fixing that link, it took me to the tip of Jackson Lake
11:08:41 <Ben VL> try this: 44.724388, -110.702785
11:09:08 <Eric> Here ya go: https://goo.gl/abCjGm
11:09:11 <Eric> Ben's link
11:09:17 <Corless> Scott Bryan identified that feature as Abandoned Cone Vent
11:09:24 <Eric> it points to abandoned crater
11:09:32 <Eric> or cone
11:10:01 <Eric> I think there is another pool up there that Bill has a logger on
11:11:05 <LindaG> LC
11:11:14 <Betty> LC
11:11:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Abandoned Cone? Looks more like a pool to me, but it probably has a reason why it's named as such
11:12:16 <Corless> https://www.google.com/maps/place/44%C2%B000'00.0%22N+43%C2%B000'00.0%22E/@44.7242117,-110.7030257,264m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d44!4d43
11:12:33 <Corless> nope, mine wont work either
11:16:01 <Corless> nothing came up on a google
11:16:07 <ynpvisitor999®> https://www.google.com/maps/place/44%C2%B043%2727.2%22N%2B110%C2%B042%2710.9%22W/@44.7242357,-110.7031758,50m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d44.7242117!4d-110.7030257
11:16:17 <ynpvisitor999®> that link should theoretically work
11:17:04 <ynpvisitor999®> you need to encode 44°43'27.2"N+110°42'10.9"W in order for the link to work
11:17:12 <Corless> oh; " In 2018, variable water levels, NPS monitor on it for a time. Also, apparently, "Cone" crossed out in a draft, making official name simply Abandoned Vent."
11:17:16 <Eric> My url shortened version works.
11:17:40 <Eric> If you look at images from there in the past, via google earth, you can see how it's changed.
11:19:47 <Corless> that link worked
11:20:19 <Corless> what is the other spring you mentioned, is it Steamvalve, behind the museum?
11:21:29 <ynpvisitor999®> This spring: https://www.google.com/maps/@44.72606,-110.7033478,62m/data=!3m1!1e3
11:22:07 <Corless> 999, that is Steamvalve, no?
11:22:39 <ynpvisitor999®> according to TGoY's map it is
11:22:44 <Corless> if I remember correctly, people were reporting that it was throwing chunks of mud early in the summer
11:23:31 <ynpvisitor999®> probably because it became active again after a 12-year dormancy
11:23:40 <Corless> in June we tried to get a good look, but it is hard to see it well with the fence barriers
11:25:20 <Betty> enter szeamvalve spring in gt, choose link and view location on a map
11:27:23 <LindaG> Daisy
11:27:41 <Eric> That monitored steamvalve too, but there are two more loggers behind abandoned cone
11:27:57 <Eric> They not that
11:28:24 <JSJ> I sat an entire day at Steamvalve, in the cold rain, back in August. Nothing.
11:28:27 <Eric> Steamvalve showed no real correlations with Steamboat that anyone could see
11:28:30 <JSJ> But others definitely did report eruptions.
11:28:48 <Eric> Yes, I have seen it erupt...very cool how it goes from mud to clear
11:28:49 <JSJ> So did the employee at the little bookstore there.
11:29:28 <Eric> JSJ try /quit and then /connect JSJ
11:29:40 <Eric> That will fix your name issue
11:29:51 <JSJ> Where's "quit"?
11:29:58 <Eric> just type /quit
11:30:04 <JSJ> quit
11:30:04 <Eric> then /connect JSJ
11:30:10 <Eric> you need the slash
11:30:11 <JSJ> connect JSJ
11:30:27 <JSJ> OK.
11:30:29 <JSJ> Nope.
11:30:35 <Eric> you didn't use a slash
11:31:29 <JSJ> I think I'm back.
11:31:31 <JSJ> Yay.
11:31:36 <Eric> yep, that works too
11:31:43 <ynpvisitor999®> you could've used /quit and then /join
11:31:55 <ynpvisitor999®> at least that fixes it for me
11:32:18 <JSJ> I just quit Safari altogether. User-friendliest approach, methinks.
11:32:41 <LindaG> What is that in the back
11:32:50 <Eric> dragon spring possibly
11:32:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Sponge?
11:33:06 <Eric> plate sits in that area also
11:33:12 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, that area
11:33:17 <JSJ> Plate-Sponge area
11:33:47 <Eric> I think a lot of the steam we see there is from dragon spring and can easily be confused with plate
11:33:47 <LindaG> Thx
11:34:06 <Eric> thtat could be ghg17
11:34:20 <Eric> hard to tell from here as it sits behind sponge from our angle
11:34:34 <LindaG> Looks like a small cone
11:34:43 <ynpvisitor999®> GHG-17 is practically covered by Pump's plume if I recall correctly
11:34:44 <Eric> that cone is sponge
11:34:55 <Betty> the cone is sponge
11:34:59 <LindaG> Ok
11:35:18 <Eric> ohh...you are totally right DG...ghg17 iis more to the right than sponge
11:36:18 <Eric> I was just trying to plot the logger data from ghg17 :-D
11:36:29 <Eric> It doesn't look like it had much variance
11:37:28 <STS> Off to the gym and then grocery store. Woo hoo. Talk to you all later.
11:37:45 <ynpvisitor999®> see you later STS
11:37:49 <Betty> bye STS
11:37:49 <Eric> cya
11:37:59 <LindaG> I knew eric😉
11:38:03 <Eric> I am going to grab some lunch myself...bbl
11:40:53 <Betty> enjoy
11:41:04 <LindaG> I ghg5
11:41:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Grove
11:42:18 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion trying again
11:42:45 <ynpvisitor999®> and succeding
11:42:54 <LindaG> Of is not helping
11:43:04 <ynpvisitor999®> nope, as per usual
11:43:13 <LindaG> Yay
11:44:00 <ynpvisitor999®> minor so far
11:44:16 <LindaG> Nope 😝
11:45:03 <ynpvisitor999®> guess that's a classic example of a Lion minor of which you can't tell it becomes a minor until it's done
11:46:03 <LindaG> Doggie
11:46:05 <ynpvisitor999®> nice series so far
11:46:18 <Dave from B™> RIP SB
11:46:21 <LindaG> How iconic a view
11:46:52 <J. Neodymium> Isn't that on a quarter?
11:47:08 <ynpvisitor999®> I blame Alaska, Dave. Not you this time
11:47:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Nickel
11:47:43 <Betty> steam plume from left
11:48:05 <J. Neodymium> It's on the Wyoming quarter - a couple of Bison and Old Faithful
11:48:07 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, I'm gone at 5pm, usually I try to fill empty hour, but I can't tonight.
11:48:08 <Betty> think Giant :-)
11:48:19 <LindaG> Well 3 your time
11:48:22 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
11:48:34 <J. Neodymium> No, I was wrong, it's the YNP quarter
11:49:08 <Kevin L™🌵> I should be able to do that
11:49:26 <LindaG> Ok Gary usually picks up early
11:49:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Hmmmm
11:49:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Probably Rocket
11:49:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Giant?
11:50:00 <LindaG> Grotto or another faux giant
11:50:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Artemisia possibly
11:50:17 <LindaG> Or maybe giant and a faux groto
11:50:29 <J. Neodymium> That's a strong plume
11:50:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Giant's plume would be much larger I think
11:50:39 <LindaG> IT is
11:50:53 <J. Neodymium> Not sure, it's 29 F
11:50:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion'
11:51:01 <Betty> it started to bbe visible at 1347
11:51:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Leaning toward Grotto/Rocket myself
11:51:18 <ynpvisitor10> the steam has a lot of speed to it
11:51:49 <LindaG> Well lion found the umph
11:52:00 <ynpvisitor24> Lots of steam but no water.
11:52:37 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm fairly confident this is either Rocket or Artemisia
11:53:11 <Art> Too close to treeline for Artemisia I'd think?
11:53:17 <LindaG> Doggie wants in on it
11:53:29 <ynpvisitor10> that's Giant
11:53:50 <Art> Sure looks like the right spot
11:53:55 <Betty> I´m with Giant too
11:54:12 <Art> Also Maybe a really nice Oblong?
11:54:12 <ynpvisitor10> the way the steam is billowing above tree line sometimes looks very spiky
11:54:31 <Betty> too far right for Oblong
11:54:46 <J. Neodymium> Steam "shape" looks very similar to the last over-the-trees Giant
11:54:51 <ynpvisitor10> not windy enough to put Oblong above tree line in that spot
11:55:13 <ynpvisitor24> I think it's grotto and a rocket major
11:55:45 <J. Neodymium> How long do rocket majors last, normally?
11:56:11 <ynpvisitor24> ?
11:56:14 <Art> So hard to not have in basin confirmation...
11:56:46 <ynpvisitor999®> most recent Rocket majors had a duration of between 3 and 8 minutes, averaging at about 4.5m
11:56:49 <Art> For some reason chat isn't letting me change my name...
11:56:55 <Betty> we will know it is Giant when Steamboat shows up on seismo. they like ti erupt the same day :-)
11:56:59 <ynpvisitor999®> do /quit and then /join
11:57:00 <JSJ> Giant is usually 1 to 1.5 hours long.
11:57:05 <LindaG> Looks similar to the last two we watched and wondered about
11:57:11 <ynpvisitor24> I hope the new camera angle will help tell them apart.
11:57:20 <J. Neodymium> This one's at 10 minutes+ now
11:57:29 <JSJ> There doesn't seem to be a strong wind - Giant should have a larger plume. ?
11:57:44 <Art> Go Giant, maybe or Grotto/Rocket ;)
11:57:46 <Art> There we go
11:59:52 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... after looking at the location a couple of times and taking into consideration the duration, I think it's safe to cross off Artemisia (plume's too far left) and Rocket (ditto). I don't recall a Grotto start generating such a big plume either
12:00:14 <J. Neodymium> I vote Giant. Who's with me?
12:00:17 <JSJ> Not Artemisia.
12:00:27 <Betty> Me
12:00:42 <J. Neodymium> :thumbsup:
12:00:44 <LindaG> Is this' a good view, closer? Further out?
12:00:47 <ynpvisitor10> Giant + extra fraudulent votes
12:00:55 <ynpvisitor10> all that I can gather
12:01:00 <J. Neodymium> Are you from North Carolina? :-}
12:01:01 <ynpvisitor999®> left over on the frequent geysers in the Giant-Artemisia list is Giant
12:01:25 <ynpvisitor999®> frequent geysers in 2018 in that area, that is
12:01:34 <ynpvisitor10> :) I'll be going around the gazerhood collecting people's ballots
12:01:38 <ynpvisitor999®> so I vote Giant too
12:02:18 <LindaG> Bsk this did happen on the last steamboat
12:02:45 <ynpvisitor999®> so, 1347 Giant start or later down the line?
12:03:35 <Betty> I saw steam at 1347, but cam was too far left to see the area
12:04:00 <Betty> too far right ...
12:04:03 <J. Neodymium> 1350 ns
12:04:27 <Betty> OF area was in view
12:08:03 <Betty> I put in a note
12:09:23 <Art> My vote is that's Giant, just seems way too big for Grotto
12:09:27 <Ben VL> You put 1247, not 1347
12:09:51 <Betty> ooops
12:09:55 <Betty> fixed
12:10:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like Giant to me
12:11:10 <JSJ> I'm leaning toward Giant, too.
12:11:25 <ynpvisitor999®> I guess it's one of those days again where chat doesn't want to co-operate
12:11:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> with the wind blowing right
12:11:36 <ynpvisitor58> Camera was on Giant area at 1343 when the firdt steam appeared then sung away and came back at 1349
12:11:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> another ? at least
12:11:50 <JSJ> Probably a normal function, considering the height.
12:12:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> how high was it :)
12:12:33 <Art> Just looking at the last couple days captures of Gotto starts and they don't appear, to me, to be nearly as strong as this
12:13:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Spa major
12:13:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> its coming up at the right spot too
12:13:30 <JSJ> Catfish major!
12:13:52 <Betty> Feather major?
12:14:01 <ynpvisitor999®> Turtle major?
12:14:14 <ynpvisitor24> Posthole!
12:14:15 <JSJ> Biggest ever Posthole eruption.
12:15:01 <ynpvisitor24> If we are speculating...
12:15:12 <Betty> LC
12:15:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Whatever it is I like it.
12:16:06 <LindaG> Ghg5
12:16:24 <LindaG> Doggie and its tail is up
12:16:30 <LindaG> Uh-oh
12:17:03 <ynpvisitor999®> I think NPS needs to build some outhouses for doggies
12:17:21 <ynpvisitor18> ?
12:18:55 <LindaG> The bison was making use of the great outdoors
12:19:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> is someone going to put a Giant ? time on GT?
12:19:11 <ynpvisitor24> CU Boulder has a life sized bison sculpture with its tail up. Makes me giggle.
12:19:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> 35+ 29 (sigh) 25 14+
12:20:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> not counting the 29 Nov Giant?
12:24:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks Betty
12:24:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Doggie is going to have to get used to those frozen dinners.
12:25:19 <Betty> yw
12:25:39 <LindaG> XOF
12:26:00 <LindaG> Or oF
12:27:37 <Eric> 6.5 days seems totally appropriate for giant
12:29:12 <Eric> so now Steamboat has to go!
12:29:42 <Betty> my words :-)
12:29:51 <Dave from B™> RIB SB
12:29:59 <Dave from B™> P*:D
12:30:07 <Betty> RIB EYE
12:30:31 <Dave from B™> I'll be right over:)
12:32:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Prime Rib sould be good now.
12:32:49 <Betty> Dave keyboard?
12:32:49 <Eric> That is giant!
12:33:01 <Eric> grotto don't do that!
12:33:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Wonder if the first was Mastiff?
12:33:26 <Eric> Similar to the eruption on the 29th
12:33:30 <Betty> Bulger?
12:33:43 <Eric> No, to big and to the right for bulger :-P
12:33:56 <Betty> :-p
12:34:02 <Corless> wowowow, glad I came back
12:34:21 <Eric> Giant is on fire.
12:34:27 <ynpvisitor24> OT?
12:35:25 <LindaG> It's making up for SB
12:35:36 <ynpvisitor24> This does look like the 29th.
12:37:03 <LindaG> Is this view good? Closer? Further back?
12:37:23 <Eric> works for me, but getting lion in would be good
12:37:49 <Eric> that works
12:38:22 <Eric> I know they don't make the controls easy for you guys :-(
12:39:15 <BSK> Darn. I go to lunch and...
12:41:24 <LindaG> I think something else happening to left
12:41:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
12:41:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand!
12:41:48 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand start :)
12:41:58 <ynpvisitor5> Nice
12:42:07 <Betty> and Riverside?
12:42:17 <ynpvisitor999®> yep
12:42:25 <Corless> wowow
12:42:36 <ynpvisitor999®> nice to see the famous three erupting simultaniously
12:43:27 <ynpvisitor5> Please ignore the geysers behind the curtain
12:44:26 <Betty> fun
12:45:50 <LindaG> LC
12:47:55 <Betty> yeah
12:48:39 <ynpvisitor999®> 7m
12:50:22 <ynpvisitor999®> 9m
12:52:16 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion trying
12:52:17 <LindaG> Lion roring
12:52:29 <LindaG> Feeling left out
12:52:46 <ynpvisitor999®> and succeding
12:52:54 <LindaG> Oh my!
12:53:28 <Betty> pffffffft
12:53:29 <LindaG> Which to look at
12:54:38 <LindaG> Is that still giant or something new?
12:54:42 <Betty> white bugs
12:54:54 <Betty> still Giant
12:55:01 <Betty> I think
12:55:15 <J. Neodymium> So if they are no gazers in the basin when three major geysers erupt, did it really happen?
12:55:15 <ynpvisitor999®> we'd be near-end
12:55:20 <ynpvisitor999®> loggers
12:55:22 <LindaG> Seems a little bit too left
12:55:48 <Betty> maybe grotto/rocket now
12:56:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto and Rocket are a bit to the right of Giant
12:56:44 <LindaG> Here comes a plume
12:58:48 <Corless> within the last few years, someone shared an image they had created with the webcam view and had edited it showing the placement of all the major features in relation to where they would be seen
12:59:16 <LindaG> Yes it is on bottom under webcam image
12:59:22 <Betty> http://donsplace.orgfree.com/ofcc2/images/UGBpan02as_labeled.jpg
12:59:36 <Betty> see helpful links
12:59:50 <Betty> oh, thanks, Linda :-D
13:00:00 <Corless> thanks you!!!!!
13:00:42 <LindaG> Kevin do you want me to leave camera where it is or wide view?
13:00:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> Giant is by the g of Oblong
13:01:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think the arrow for it is placed too far right
13:01:44 <LindaG> Putting on wide view, Kevin supposed tontake.
13:02:27 <Kevin L™🌵> You ready?
13:02:38 <LindaG> Take it
13:02:45 <Corless> I cant wrap my head around Artemesia showing left of F&M
13:03:54 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, got it?
13:04:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Got it.
13:04:33 <LindaG> Goodnight all, happy gazing
13:04:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Good Knight.
13:04:45 <ynpvisitor999®> night Linda
13:04:48 <Betty> night Linda, thx
13:05:21 <ynpvisitor24> Goodnight! What a great note to leave on!
13:06:19 <LindaG> Really!doesn't get much better than that. Of all nights i gotta go.
13:06:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Looking for NoDoz®
13:10:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe NG will put in an appearance
13:14:02 <Betty> you got my mail Kevin?
13:15:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
13:15:45 <Betty> nice
13:16:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Working on a few just like those!
13:17:27 <Betty> I thought you would like to see those :-)
13:18:06 <Kevin L™🌵> I am surprised to see them there!
13:19:06 <Betty> turning has a great tradition in my area
13:20:32 <Kevin L™🌵> The bolt actions are an exclusive item from Penn State Industries.
13:22:05 <Kevin L™🌵> The funny thing is the worst looking piece of wood makes the best looking pen. I have got some great pieces of walnut from Dan Markoff that he had been throwing away when making his train car due to knot holes.
13:22:20 <Betty> they use wood, in former times my hometown was famous for Ivory carving. Now it is not allowed anymore to use Ivory, but they use Mammoth ivory instead
13:22:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Wood around knotholes is great pen stock.
13:23:05 <Betty> yes, makes the pen have a character

13:47:11 <STS> Hello again
13:47:52 <ynpvisitor999®> welcome back
13:48:08 <STS> Anything interesting happen?
13:48:15 <STS> I see SB still hasn't done anything
13:48:42 <ynpvisitor999®> not much happened while you were away
13:48:59 <STS> Woo
13:49:22 <ynpvisitor999®> other than a few LCs and, well, a trifecta of Grand, Giant and Riverside. Lion joined in for the fun too.
13:49:25 <Corless> were you here or away for Giant?
13:49:30 <Eric> Have we heard anything about the webcam switchover?
13:49:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Not that big of a deal, really
13:49:42 <Corless> LOL
13:49:48 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion trying
13:49:49 <Eric> Lion puff
13:49:58 <STS> I was away for Giant
13:50:14 <Eric> ohh, we had giant then :-D
13:50:18 <STS> Though I do know there was some discussion a few days if it really went off or not
13:50:29 <Eric> No, this happened today
13:50:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Giant's logger should have the answer, STS
13:50:55 <Eric> Yes, the logger data is very good for seeing the giants
13:51:18 <Corless> Giant(?) logged at 1347
13:51:28 <STS> Yes, okay, thank you!
13:51:34 <Eric> OF
13:51:35 <Eric> iie
13:51:42 <ynpvisitor999®> 1550
13:51:45 <STS> But no Steamboat :(
13:52:07 <Eric> Maybe a really quite one that didn't register on the seismo...
13:52:24 <STS> I mean, anything is possible?
13:52:49 <Eric> Well, the logger data would show conclusively what SB did or did not do
13:53:09 <Dave from B™> SB hasn't done diddly squat
13:53:14 <Eric> But the seismo is kind of a hack to tell if steamboat erupted.
13:53:16 <Corless> yet
13:53:25 <STS> Eh, maybe there was a disturbance?
13:53:41 <Dave from B™> STS, either that or EQ effect
13:53:41 <ynpvisitor999®> oh gosh, no disturbance
13:54:02 <Eric> Or Dave selling more fish
13:54:07 <Eric> We don't know!
13:54:10 <STS> Was that some hoo-hah I read earlier then?
13:54:27 <Eric> There is a lot of that here :-P
13:54:31 <Dave from B™> hahaha
13:54:34 <STS> I still think the Alaska quake had some effect
13:54:37 <STS> Hahahaha
13:55:22 <Eric> I can say that there are lots of opinions here about what could be happening in places we cannot see...some of them informed.
13:55:25 <Corless> is the Alaska quake thing an inside sarcastic joke?
13:55:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ie
13:55:57 <Eric> Man, watch for those NGs now
13:55:58 <Dave from B™> Craig, EQ effects are possible...who knows.
13:56:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Lion
13:56:31 <Corless> hard to tell in chats if people are joking or not
13:56:45 <STS> I am aware of "alternative media" blowing things out of proportion
13:57:14 <ynpvisitor999®> the 2002 Denali EQ had an effect on Daisy and Castle if I recall correctly. This was probably because that EQ caused an EQ sequence in Yellowstone
13:57:30 <Corless> I always see news relate the most extreme versions of any geological event, so I didnt know if you were making fun of that kindof stuff
13:57:42 <STS> Oh lol
13:58:25 <STS> No, I guess I'm under the impression earthquakes can cause disturbances. I could be misinformed though.
13:58:58 <STS> Just trying to take in information from you guys who have been observing for much longer than I have.
13:59:05 <ynpvisitor999®> well, I don't think you're entirely wrong on that subject, STS.
13:59:33 <STS> And are much wiser on this subject.
13:59:54 <ynpvisitor58> DG, lion start 1554:27
14:00:01 <Corless> I don't know shit compared to most everyone, that is why I love checking GG group on FB
14:00:35 <ynpvisitor999®> did you see the start through all that OF steam, 58 (Joe?)? You're getting better than me :P
14:00:52 <Dave from B™> It would help if the park was open and we could get feet on the ground at Norris.
14:01:24 <Eric> Citizen scientists Dave :-D
14:01:26 <Kevin L™🌵> I would like to know what the blips at Norris are.
14:01:40 <Corless> who would be in Norris right now if it were open? I'll admit, I wouldn't last very long there in this kind of cold.
14:01:44 <Eric> You should push to volunteer in the park to guard norris in between seasons.
14:01:46 <Dave from B™> Maybe I could sneak MA in!:D
14:02:00 <STS> Oh, it'd be miserable.
14:02:05 <Dave from B™> MA would sneak a peek
14:02:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Edited the 1555 Lion ie entry
14:02:14 <Eric> I would bring a portable shelter and heater :-D
14:02:19 <Dave from B™> I bet Tom C would go in the cold
14:02:23 <Eric> portable coffee pot
14:02:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't think that ranger would bother you about food on the bw though.
14:02:34 <Eric> Yep, I would bet on Tom C too!
14:02:48 <ynpvisitor10> really hard to say what the cause of Steamboat not erupting is. You've got earthquake, onset of cold precipitation, basin-wide disturbance or the biggest category: unknown Steamboat stopping events like have happened in the past
14:03:17 <Eric> Or Dave!
14:03:18 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... 29°F - with some gloves and thick clothing I think I could manage in Norris (not experienced a Yellowstone-like winter ever, so maybe I'm a bit naive...)
14:03:34 <STS> Has there been a significant EQ in YNP lately? I haven't seen anything
14:03:38 <Betty> ouch, Eric
14:03:50 <Dave from B™> You're right 10. That's the frustrating thing about this hobby. Sometimes you will never know
14:03:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
14:03:59 <ynpvisitor10> having some observations from Norris could potentially help narrow it down but we don't have that
14:04:05 <Eric> hey, it's been scientifically proven Dave can stop SB from erupting!
14:04:08 <Dave from B™> Eric, be nice, Christmas is coming up!
14:04:14 <Eric> hahahaha
14:04:16 <STS> Lol
14:05:10 <Corless> there have been times in the last few weeks where I have driven with my bike to a trailhead, felt the cold, and turned around and went home. Nope, I wouldnt make it at SB in the winter
14:05:12 <Dave from B™> Just because I have 68 hours on the platform with no SB eruption..is that proof enough
14:05:27 <Eric> Hey if Dave has that much power to stop a SB eruption...you don't want to be on his bad side!
14:05:50 <Corless> 68 hours, good work
14:06:37 <Dave from B™> C'mon, Eric....don't scare all the new people I have met here today!
14:07:03 <Corless> besides the cold, I found my other deterrent.... from being older.... 'service breaks'
14:07:32 <Betty> yes Eric, tell them about Dave´s Angel wings :-)
14:08:12 <STS> Takes a lot to scare me off
14:09:16 <Dave from B™> service breaks...that hasn't hit me yet. Just see monday's log about my Portland to Blgs trip
14:11:20 <ynpvisitor999®> never noticed how pretty South Purple Pool looks from above: https://www.google.com/maps/@44.470289,-110.8392027,117m/data=!3m1!1e3
14:11:50 <ynpvisitor999®> you can actually see a bit of a purple hint in the North and East pools
14:12:40 <Corless> nice capture of the bison, thanks
14:15:57 <Dave from B™> DG, it would be nice to have a bw in that area
14:17:21 <ynpvisitor999®> it would. They could even extend the boardwalk so that it crosses the river near Riverside
14:18:28 <Dave from B™> It would be weird seeing people over there
14:20:29 <ynpvisitor999®> a positive thing about a boardwalk there would be easier access to Riverside's logger
14:20:44 <ynpvisitor999®> and postcard-like images of Riverside erupting
14:22:29 <Eric> Giant eruptions from there would be pretty epic too!
14:22:45 <Corless> they could have it cross near Beauty Pool and rejoin by the bathroom
14:23:10 <Corless> not cross, but go up on the side, sorry
14:23:20 <Eric> The road used to cross down that direction with the old bridge
14:23:48 <Eric> Nice break in the clouds on west static
14:25:56 <Corless> Does anyone here remember driving in on the road right next to Morning Glory?
14:26:29 <Dave from B™> Kevin remembers
14:27:18 <Corless> It used to scare me walking around MGP cuz there were no rails, and I worried my younger sis would fall in
14:28:22 <Corless> so weird to think of how little the pullouts were, and always able to park
14:29:11 <Dave from B™> Time for me to have a cold one with wife and friends. Have a great weekend everyone!
14:29:27 <Corless> cya Dave, enjoy
14:29:30 <STS> You as well!
14:29:46 <Betty> enjoy Dave
14:29:58 <Betty> LC ie
14:30:09 <Kevin L™🌵> That looks like a fox!
14:30:18 <Corless> oh cool
14:30:27 <ynpvisitor58> 4pclock fox
14:30:35 <ynpvisitor999®> red fox?
14:30:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't think I have seen a fox here before.
14:30:52 <Betty> either me
14:30:59 <Kevin L™🌵> I do remember the road Corless.
14:31:19 <Corless> :thumbsup:
14:31:26 <Dave from B™> I hate to tell you guys that that is a bison
14:31:43 <STS> No, it's a REALLY BIG fox
14:31:45 <BSK> And that is a fox. :)
14:31:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Funny looking bison Dave.
14:31:51 <Dave from B™> Yep..fox
14:32:08 <Corless> there it is
14:32:11 <STS> How cool!
14:32:20 <Dave from B™> nice. We had one around our house last year
14:32:39 <STS> Another one!
14:32:59 <STS> Or am I just seeing things under the boardwalk
14:33:13 <Kevin L™🌵> There are a bunch in the hill above me here
14:33:45 <Betty> nice white tail tip
14:34:16 <Betty> great camwork Kevin. thx
14:34:16 <Corless> how can the cam operator tell what there is outside the view?
14:34:55 <STS> the weather forecast said partly cloudy today!
14:35:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like part of the cloudy is falling down.
14:36:12 <STS> Hahahaha
14:36:30 <Eric> bummer missed the fox :-(
14:36:39 <Eric> come out, come out wherever you are
14:36:39 <Betty> looks like tumbleweed
14:36:51 <Eric> that is a weed
14:36:53 <Eric> :-P
14:37:36 <BSK> We promise. There WAS a walking fox. :)
14:40:29 <Eric> I don't doubt it...there has been an extreme lack of coyotes in the area, so I am wondering if the pack of wolves in the spring cleaned them out?
14:40:45 <Eric> Now fox are expanding
14:43:24 <ynpvisitor58> If everything works right I'll cut it and post the video on you tube
14:44:30 <ynpvisitor97> Doggie
14:44:34 <Eric> cool
14:44:53 <ynpvisitor97> Are there two?
14:47:33 <ynpvisitor68> It’s snowing there!
14:49:29 <Betty> I think that 2nd was a stone
14:50:34 <Betty> will we get another Lion? any bets?
14:51:52 <STS> My bet is no.
14:51:58 <Betty> yay
14:52:05 <STS> 9 is a pretty good number
14:52:34 <Betty> a minor maybe
15:02:49 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
15:04:18 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
15:09:25 <ynpvisitor69> still light at the Lake
15:10:46 <ynpvisitor57> Here is the FOX https://youtu.be/x-fgK8zJ9wU
15:13:34 <Corless> thanks for making that, 57
15:14:32 <ynpvisitor57> ywI had it all but something happened on the upload
15:16:02 <ynpvisitor57> You will be able to see all it when DaveM posts the daily capture
15:19:05 <ynpvisitor69> that was fun, a bison too.
15:27:20 <ynpvisitor69> Nice, OF/Lion dual
15:28:17 <ynpvisitor69> short Lion interval...
15:30:12 <Eric> last one was noted as a minor
15:30:16 <STS> How's everyone's webcam?
15:30:27 <STS> I'm pretty sure my internet is just out of wack
15:31:10 <Corless> seems a little choppy
15:31:30 <STS> Well mine wasn't even showing up
15:31:36 <STS> It's working now though
15:32:03 <ynpvisitor999®> wasn't paying attention - when did Lion start and when did OF?
15:32:55 <STS> Did OF even go off yet? Or did it when my connection went out
15:33:11 <ynpvisitor999®> OF/Lion dual was noted at 1727
15:33:35 <ynpvisitor999®> but not sure if one or both were ie based on that
15:33:47 <Corless> I wasnt watching either
15:34:02 <STS> Well the person who said that just quit so...
15:34:49 <Art> They weren't making it up, it as a thing ;)
15:34:55 <Art> was a
15:35:08 <STS> So both erupted at that time?
15:35:22 <ynpvisitor999®> at 1727 they were both erupting
15:35:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I could log them as ie, though, but I prefer to have the exact time
15:42:43 <ynpvisitor97> Nice thanks for fox video
15:45:14 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle ie
15:45:58 <LindaG> Wow what anday!
15:46:27 <LindaG> Or a day! Keyboard still broken.
