22:23:45 <BSK> Still nothin’ (just a check before sleep)
23:50:49 <ynpvisitor15> SB! 33 b4 the end of the year?
23:51:14 <ynpvisitor15> 32*
00:13:58 <ynpvisitor114> Yay!
00:21:51 <ynpvisitor97> Whoohoo, steamboat 😊
00:30:33 <ynpvisitor11> Yeah!!
02:53:36 <ynpvisitor16> Wow go steamboat!
03:46:27 <ynpvisitor107> Daisy
03:51:08 <ynpvisitor107> Lion
04:03:49 <ynpvisitor57> fox yesterday hope i did it right
04:04:59 <ynpvisitor57> use control to slowit down
04:08:41 <ynpvisitor57> fox at slower speed
04:13:34 <GO GOGGLE> so STeamboat finally decided to erupt and set the record
04:13:36 <GO GOGGLE> nice
04:14:31 <GO GOGGLE> not as thick a line on the seismo after the first few minutes.
04:26:38 <LindaG> Seismo didnt look at strong as last one
04:27:29 <GO GOGGLE> yeah, maybe not as noisy but culd still be a lot of water and tall
04:27:50 <LindaG> Shame we can't see it
04:35:18 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning everyone
04:35:56 <ynpvisitor41> if Emily shows up ask how it looked, I think she has saved all of the seismo traces
04:36:21 <ynpvisitor41> *looked, in comparison, I mean
04:36:32 <ynpvisitorCC> I havehad the control of the Live Cam sincebefore it went public and I have never seen a fox on the screen Fantastic video!!
04:36:54 <ynpvisitor41> neat
04:39:37 <ynpvisitor58> I could not believe what I was seeing (the fox) so I wanted to make sure our chat visitors saw it.
04:40:17 <ynpvisitorCC> Glad you posted it
04:42:05 <GO GOGGLE> good video of it. looked like another coyote at a distance but clearly not when it was closer
04:42:34 <ynpvisitorCC> You could see the read coat
04:42:39 <ynpvisitorCC> red
04:42:40 <GO GOGGLE> ghg5
04:58:09 <ynpvisitorCC> Lion
04:58:40 <GO GOGGLE> NG went at an unusual time, half way between 1st and 2nd Lion
05:03:01 <ynpvisitor58> I did not believe it so I checked my recording three times it was ~1/2 min, I almost did not post it because of the unusual timing.
05:09:44 <ynpvisitor999®> Unusual things happening on GH again? Fun
05:10:55 <ynpvisitor999®> I think NG's unusual time is probably a response to Lion's long series of yesterday rather than one resulting of Lion starting a series
05:12:47 <GO GOGGLE> Lion started earlier than you would expect
05:13:19 <ynpvisitor999®> very true
05:13:54 <ynpvisitor999®> probably an influx of water and/or heat down there
05:17:14 <ynpvisitor58> I was not expecting Lion 11 hours way to soon almost thought it was Bee but it was higher than Bee's location
05:20:01 <ynpvisitor58> Looks like bubbler action at Bee, so another 4 hours or so for Bee
05:20:10 <ynpvisitor999®> so... 35+, 30 (FINALLY!), 25, 14+
05:20:38 <GO GOGGLE> thanks DG, i forgot to do that
05:20:49 <ynpvisitor58> an historic event!
05:20:50 <ynpvisitor999®> lunchbreak Bee probably
05:21:42 <ynpvisitor999®> 2018 is definitely a year of stupendousness
05:21:43 <GO GOGGLE> that assumes one of the ? Giants wasnt Giant
05:21:51 <GO GOGGLE> and 0 Giantess
05:22:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Giantess would definitely finish this year off
05:22:29 <GO GOGGLE> its warm in the basin today
05:22:33 <ynpvisitor58> 100 years from now we can tell our great grand children about it !!!
05:22:44 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
05:22:57 <ynpvisitor58> Steamboat I mean.
05:23:35 <ynpvisitor999®> 22°F this morning
05:23:44 <ynpvisitor58> I'll only be 174
05:23:45 <ynpvisitor999®> decent
05:23:49 <GO GOGGLE> and how we watched Giantess reativate after its lngest interval :)
05:24:06 <ynpvisitor58> :)
05:24:29 <ynpvisitor41> I hope you are right
05:24:36 <GO GOGGLE> hard to believe i missed the last one by a few days
05:24:55 <STS> Morning all
05:25:00 <ynpvisitor999®> morning STS
05:25:13 <ynpvisitor58> Hi STS
05:25:30 <GO GOGGLE> would have been good to see it as i saw the one before, the only one i have seen from the start
05:25:51 <STS> I fell asleep on my couch and went to bed RIGHT before SB went last night
05:26:43 <ynpvisitor999®> speaking of SB, it seems noise on YNM is back to background noise
05:27:45 <STS> Certainly looks that way
05:28:25 <GO GOGGLE> i wonder if any of the arriving staff will see it
05:29:12 <ynpvisitor999®> that's right, park opens again in a few days
05:32:04 <GO GOGGLE> opens next Sat, and Snow lodge opens the Sunday
05:34:22 <GO GOGGLE> so SB could erupt on opening weekend, that would be nice
05:35:05 <ynpvisitor999®> I hope it doesn't slow down
05:36:16 <GO GOGGLE> i am voting for the next to be a shorter interval
05:40:35 <STS> That was a lot for OF to not start
05:40:52 <ynpvisitor999®> it does that
05:41:18 <STS> Right
05:41:53 <ynpvisitor58> Nice bubbler steam
05:44:24 <ynpvisitor9> Castle?
05:44:34 <ynpvisitor999®> nope
05:44:52 <ynpvisitor999®> you'd see more steam and/or jetting above the treeline
05:45:06 <ynpvisitor999®> it's trying though
05:46:54 <ynpvisitor9> IT is I thought it would continue but it didnt
05:48:00 <ynpvisitor58> Dep?
05:48:51 <ynpvisitor999®> don't see steam in it's runoff channel (yet)
05:48:55 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe a crash
05:49:08 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
05:55:20 <ynpvisitor999®> hmm... seeing Castle, is there a possibility we missed a minor earlier?
05:55:43 <ynpvisitor999®> I tyhink I should've said that earlier
05:55:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle
05:56:16 <ynpvisitor58> NO did not miss :)
05:56:18 <ynpvisitor999®> saying earlier, as in, encouraging Castle to prove me wrong :)
05:56:29 <ynpvisitor58> :)
05:57:18 <ynpvisitor999®> nice start
05:58:09 <ynpvisitor58> Nice
05:58:09 <ynpvisitor999®> tall jets
05:58:42 <ynpvisitor999®> hopefully we don't miss Lion
06:05:57 <ynpvisitor58> still have jetting at 10min
06:06:08 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
06:10:33 <ynpvisitor999®> (nearly) 4m long. I think at least one to three additional eruptions before Lion calls it quits
06:12:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle major
06:17:01 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside within probably 10 minutes
06:26:25 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Dave
06:26:52 <Dave from B™> Morning DG
06:27:08 <Dave from B™> Nice to see the monster erupted again
06:27:17 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed
06:29:35 <ynpvisitor58> Dave if you have not seen the Fox at OF here it is
06:30:01 <GO GOGGLE> when is the next Monster eruption Dave?
06:30:36 <Corless> that was great cam work on tracking that fox
06:32:00 <ynpvisitor58> Kevin or Gary Novak, I do not know which, great work
06:32:09 <ynpvisitorCC> Bubblers seem very strong
06:32:38 <ynpvisitorCC> I believe Gary was on the controls
06:32:40 <Corless> I think it was Kevin
06:33:11 <ynpvisitor58> Yes it has done that the past three or four days now ??
06:33:16 <GO GOGGLE> it wasnt me, i only do Moose
06:33:29 <Dave from B™> Graham, I'm going to pass on this go around. I hope it shortens up this time.
06:33:57 <GO GOGGLE> I am going for 7 to 8.5 days
06:34:48 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside ie
06:35:25 <GO GOGGLE> maybe erupting at 1000 Sunday as the snowcoch heads for the Snow Lodge
06:36:01 <GO GOGGLE> at least we know the earthquake in Alaska didnt kill it
06:41:01 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the link. What was under the boardwalk?
06:41:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy
06:41:28 <ynpvisitor999®> .
06:41:29 <ynpvisitor999®> .
06:41:30 <ynpvisitor999®> .
06:41:31 <ynpvisitor999®> .
06:41:31 <ynpvisitor999®> .
06:42:15 <ynpvisitor999®> no lunchbreak Bee then
06:43:10 <ynpvisitor43> I knew the bubblers were very strong!
06:44:32 <ynpvisitor43> This is CC here
06:45:00 <ynpvisitor43> I am now on as 43 as my name CC is still there
06:46:16 <ynpvisitor58> Yes you were right
06:46:32 <Dave from B™> Morning CC
06:46:39 <ynpvisitor43> Hi Dave
06:47:44 <Dave from B™> Congrats on your latest cam op additions. They are doing a great job.
06:48:00 <ynpvisitor43> I totally agree!!!
06:48:07 <ynpvisitor58> Dave, I do not know what was under the bw, tumbleweed maybe?
06:48:57 <ynpvisitor58> Yes the new camops are doing great.
06:49:06 <LindaG> I sent a text
06:49:11 <Kitt> got text
06:49:13 <Kitt> thanks
06:49:19 <ynpvisitor58> tks
06:49:59 <Kitt> was so excited that I was changing number to name, thought I was done and put in a response
06:49:59 <Dave from B™> Joe, that was my guess as well but it sure looked like eyes staring out!:)
06:50:50 <Kitt> I haven't seen tumbleweeds in the ugb
06:50:58 <Kitt> where were these eyes?
06:51:12 <ynpvisitor58> yes it did but when the fox walked by without noticing I thought otherwise
06:51:21 <LindaG> Maybe it was the fox
06:51:51 <ynpvisitor58> here Kitt
06:53:10 <Kitt> awesome bee
06:55:20 <ynpvisitor58> It was some odd colored something under the bw in two places
06:55:42 <Kitt> I was checking it when bee started
06:55:53 <Kitt> I will look at it again after bee
06:56:19 <Kitt> fun how the fox was just wandering around the bison that were bedded down
06:56:28 <Dave from B™> Joe, the question should be is the blob still under the boardwalk this morning?
06:57:15 <ynpvisitor58> mabe CC ill look when Bee is done
06:57:29 <ynpvisitor43> My shift is over is 3 minutes
06:57:37 <ynpvisitor58> maybe*
06:57:59 <ynpvisitor58> then maybe Tom
06:58:40 <ynpvisitor999®> that was a fun Bee
06:58:50 <ynpvisitor43> Have a great day everyone...signing off
06:58:51 <ynpvisitor58> yes
06:58:57 <Dave from B™> Bye CC
06:59:00 <ynpvisitor58> Bye CC
06:59:06 <ynpvisitor999®> bye CC
06:59:27 <Dave from B™> Tom? Another newbie?:)
06:59:42 <ynpvisitor58> No old hand
07:00:10 <Dave from B™> He's kept his identity secret then for a long time. Way to blow it, Joe:D
07:00:41 <LindaG> Looking at the blob it looks like a large bird to me, like quail
07:01:19 <ynpvisitor58> He has had Saturday morning for a long time
07:02:06 <Dave from B™> Are we talking about Tom C from West?
07:02:52 <Corless> no I didn't
07:02:58 <ynpvisitor58> No he posts as thosk on GT, Tom Kearney
07:03:29 <Kitt> Bill thinks the blob is just grass and maybe a bird was there
07:03:30 <Dave from B™> Thanks, I've seen FB posts from him
07:03:48 <Kitt> He says if it was a badger or something the fox would have seen him
07:04:08 <Dave from B™> That makes sense
07:04:26 <Kitt> well I am off to watch Bill "rake" / shovel snow off the roof
07:04:32 <Kitt> have a good one
07:04:52 <ynpvisitor58> Bye Kitt
07:05:07 <Kitt> Dave, Thomas made it home safely, but wishes he was back in Florida
07:05:30 <Kitt> thought the 3 above when he got home last night was a little cold
07:05:57 <Kevin L™🚂> You will enjoy it here kitt!
07:06:09 <Dave from B™> Glad to hear he made it home. Did he have fun?
07:07:15 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
07:08:33 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger ie?
07:11:36 <ynpvisitor999®> nice burst
07:13:46 <ynpvisitor999®> 7m
07:15:50 <ynpvisitor999®> 9m
07:16:15 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
07:16:28 <ynpvisitor999®> please have a 2nd
07:17:05 <ynpvisitor58> 2nd
07:17:33 <Dave from B™> There ya go
07:18:21 <ynpvisitor999®> and a curtain
07:19:07 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like Grand's done, probably -2Q
07:20:48 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe not Q
07:40:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
07:44:58 <ynpvisitor999®> post-Grand restart
07:45:39 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, that's a bit late for a restart
07:49:17 <ynpvisitor58> probably turban
07:50:30 <Dave from B™> Yep...Turban and/or vent
07:51:16 <Dave from B™> The one area that is lacking in geyser study is what happens after something erupts...everyone leaves and goes to the next geyser due
07:53:18 <ynpvisitor41> the one thing? there *might* be more :)
07:59:09 <ynpvisitor58> I have sat in the area after Grand and watched Turban and Vent, Percolator and West Triplet, Turban and vent would erupt a few times, fun to watch
08:01:22 <Emily> Ive never done that, ussually I bounce to another thing
08:04:25 <ynpvisitor58> We are usually the only ones there as everyone has moved on, one of the advantages of being physically handicapped. :)
08:05:07 <Dave from B™> haha 41...there is always more
08:17:57 <Dave from B™> Joe, I really do admire your optimistic attitude
08:19:48 <ynpvisitor58> Thank you Dave
08:23:55 <ynpvisitor58> The way I look at things is, you can cry in your beer, or you can enjoy drinking your beer, I prefer drinking my beer :)
08:25:14 <Dave from B™> A great motto to live by. Joe, I hope we get a chance to meet in YNP this year
08:25:46 <Emily> what are your plans joe and dave for YNP if you have them?
08:27:58 <Dave from B™> June 24-30, Labor Day for sure. Making plans for Memorial Day area. And 2 day trips to Norris to catch SB
08:28:29 <ynpvisitor58> My plans are a few trips late August middle September and early October
08:28:33 <Dave from B™> How about you Emily?
08:28:59 <Dave from B™> See how Joe is.....he is avoiding me!:D
08:29:59 <ynpvisitor58> :) Maybe I'll catch you at your store when I have to go to Billings
08:30:25 <Emily> Ill be there labor day and maybe august some
08:31:18 <Dave from B™> If you do stop by, please ask for me. I'm usually upstairs.
08:32:10 <Emily> He cant ask for just dave he has to ask for Dave from B
08:32:29 <Emily> Dave, is Becca going to try and see SB at all?
08:32:39 <ynpvisitor58> Will Do Dave, I also lovespending Christmas in (Aug 25) Yellowstone
08:33:30 <Dave from B™> Emily, Yes Becca will be actively gazing this year as well. I would imagine she will join me for Memorial Day and June trips for sure
08:35:18 <Emily> you guys are some of the funnest gazers ive met in the park.
08:37:54 <Dave from B™> Thanks Emily. It is a great group of people. Time always goes too fast in the park.
08:38:33 <Emily> I think I first saw you to at a rainy 3 burst grans with just Jim?
08:42:28 <Dave from B™> That sounds right. I know Becca was excited to finally see a 3 burster.
09:12:22 <ynpvisitor58> STS exact start was 1055;25 Last water was 1057:59may have been a short right at 2 and 1/2 min
09:13:26 <STS> I think it was a short by the abuptness of it stopping
09:13:50 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd say that's bottom line medium/upper line short
09:14:09 <STS> I'm marking it as a short for now. Will change if the interval is a long
09:14:51 <STS> But I changed to exact time at 1055
09:15:38 <ynpvisitor58> Great that will work
09:28:32 <STS> Hasn't had a short for a week
09:31:21 <ynpvisitor58> Daisy
09:39:57 <STS> Crazy how busy the chatroom was yesterday when SB hadn't gone and today it seems so quiet :lol:
09:44:35 <ynpvisitor58> Yes it was busy, busy and then at the end od the day we had the Fox on camera, did you see it
09:44:56 <STS> I did! So awesome!
09:45:25 <ynpvisitor58> neat! bbl
10:16:49 <STS> Well, I guess the last OF eruption was a long after all
10:17:40 <ynpvisitor999®> it'd be a medium then, as a long has a duration of either at least 3m30s or at least 3m45s
10:18:11 <STS> Learn something new every day
10:19:30 <ynpvisitor999®> and if you don't know the duration, it's usually safe to assume that an interval of <= 1h15m is the result of a short
10:19:44 <ynpvisitor999®> <=*
10:19:47 <ynpvisitor999®> whatever
10:20:06 <ynpvisitor999®> less than or equal to 1h15m
10:20:39 <STS> :thumbsup::thumbsup:
10:20:58 <STS> Saw a splash a bit ago
10:50:01 <Dave from B™> I love the sound of things getting scanned in the market:)
10:50:27 <GO GOGGLE> cash registers dont sound like they used to
10:50:44 <GO GOGGLE> my mom enjoyed some Maine lobster last night
10:51:21 <Dave from B™> Since we just have a cash drawer, it makes no sound at all
10:51:30 <Dave from B™> Nice, how is your mom doing?
10:51:40 <Dave from B™> She lives in Denver, correct?
10:52:01 <GO GOGGLE> mom in Richmond, sister in Denver
10:52:13 <GO GOGGLE> doing good, sister was visiting seeing her new grandbabk
10:52:34 <Dave from B™> Had that backwards
10:52:34 <GO GOGGLE> so we went to dinner, salmon, muscles, scallops, red dory, and others
10:53:05 <Dave from B™> Nice.
10:55:19 <Kevin L™🚂> No Cod?
10:55:50 <GO GOGGLE> nope, crab cakes, we are near the bay
10:58:19 <Dave from B™> I need to get back to DC and Baltimore Inner Harbor. Great memories from decades ago
11:03:05 <Kevin L™🚂> GO ARMY
11:05:48 <Dave from B™> Keinv, have you ever had haddock?
11:06:25 <Kevin L™🚂> Yes. Not for a long time but it is very good.
11:07:16 <Dave from B™> We have fresh in stock right now
11:07:40 <Kevin L™🚂> Nice! how much is it?
11:08:24 <Dave from B™> 10.99/lb fresh. Frozen is 6.11/lb
11:09:05 <GO GOGGLE> no wonder dinner was so expensive
11:09:35 <Kevin L™🚂> Not bad.
11:10:39 <ynpvisitor69> it's a heat wave...wonder if it will get above freezing?
11:24:12 <Corless> what is haddock like? mild or fishy?
11:24:29 <Kevin L™🚂> Mild white fish
11:24:52 <Corless> my fave is halibut, cod, orange roughy
11:24:59 <Dave from B™> Hi, Craig. It is very similar to Cod. It comes from the Atlantic. I would say most East Coasters prefer it over cod
11:25:16 <Corless> we eat cod the most, because of price
11:25:43 <Kevin L™🚂> I love cod, but haddock is high up there.
11:27:06 <Corless> hey again, dave, it was cool hanging out with you folks yesterday. I have never spent time here before, just popping on the page very briefly to see charts
11:29:30 <Dave from B™> Yes, the reported demise of SB wasn't true after all. Concerning to see a longer interval but at least it is still erupting.
11:30:16 <Kevin L™🚂> It will stay active until April
11:30:55 <Corless> I went to bed with the YNM page on my phone, and when I roused at 330, I checked it, and got excited and woke my g/f up to tell her
11:30:55 <Dave from B™> will get the blame if it does
11:31:14 <Dave from B™> haha, have the disease:D
11:31:19 <Corless> LOL
11:31:42 <Corless> this #30 meant a lot more to me, I guess
11:32:10 <Dave from B™> It is historical
11:32:36 <Corless> and also worrying that a cycle might have ended
11:33:27 <Corless> we have been bummed about not catching an eruption this last year
11:34:39 <Dave from B™> Craig, I have told my wife, I'm not sure how I will react if SB goes dormant and I haven't seen it. With 40 years of visiting YNP, SB is the holy grail of geysers
11:36:19 <STS> Regardless if it goes back to its 6-7 day cycle, becomes irregular, or goes dormant, at least we can say we were part of history!
11:37:21 <Dave from B™> Yes, and for those of us that made it to the platform....some big ass minors
11:37:38 <Dave from B™> The get out of your seat kind
11:38:10 <Corless> I was going to say the same thing, Dave.... the anticipation and excitement while waiting, even without an eruption, was a highly rewarding experience
11:38:34 <Corless> and interacting with like-minded folks there was cool
11:39:34 <Dave from B™> But 3 drives home after 2 days of sitting with no major is not a feeling I like to experience over and over
11:39:53 <STS> Maybe someday I'll actually get out to the park
11:40:13 <Corless> STS, where do you live
11:40:21 <Dave from B™> STS, you've never been? You must live a long ways away
11:40:43 <STS> Sioux Falls, South Dakota
11:41:03 <STS> 12.5 hour drive
11:41:22 <STS> Haven't been to Wyoming for years now :(
11:42:20 <Corless> You won't regret it. It's just over 4 hours for us, and I have been going at least twice a year for decades, and before that for many years I was going about every other week
11:43:00 <STS> It's on the bucket list to spend a week there
11:43:01 <Corless> but those were flyfishing trips LOL...
11:45:37 <Dave from B™> If you want to meet gazers, the big weekends are Memorial (picnic), July 4th, Labor Day (Wine and Cheese)
11:46:18 <Corless> probably many would say otherwise, but if you only had one week to be in Yellowstone, total, I wouldnt try to see Steamboat. I would tour the whole park for a few days, then take time in UGB bouncing around the eruptions there, and enjoying the various features from there to the lower basins and Norris
11:47:14 <STS> I need to start planning!
11:47:38 <Dave from B™> Craig, I totally agree. I was lucky last year. When we were in the park in late June for 6 nights, SB was in disturbance mode and we stayed in UGB
11:48:03 <Dave from B™> I hate driving back and forth to Norris during the busy summer season
11:48:19 <Dave from B™> So, we saw 5 Giant Hot periods and no Giant instead
11:48:29 <Corless> I love relaxing at Black Sand Basin and Biscuit Basin for a break from the larger crowds
11:49:04 <Dave from B™> Black Sand Pool and Artemesia are places for me to "get away"
11:49:05 <Corless> hiking up the old road from Biscuit to UGB is awesome
11:53:57 <GO GOGGLE> dave from B - can you PM me
11:59:35 <Dave from B™> Graham, not able to but thanks for the Messenger message
12:15:54 <Dave from B™> Time to head home. Have a great Saturday everyone
12:16:04 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Dave
12:16:15 <ynpvisitor77> Hi
12:16:25 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon 77
12:16:42 <ynpvisitor77> Trying to build your snowman
12:17:30 <ynpvisitor999®> good luck. Hopefully the snow co-operates :)
12:18:00 <ynpvisitor77> Can you show me the spot again
12:18:31 <ynpvisitor999®> right there
12:18:33 <ynpvisitor58> There
12:18:59 <ynpvisitor58> stop go back
12:19:23 <ynpvisitor58> there
12:19:27 <ynpvisitor999®> yes, right there :)
12:19:38 <ynpvisitor999®> hello!
12:19:53 <ynpvisitor58> About center of the opening
12:20:26 <ynpvisitor58> There in the red
12:20:37 <ynpvisitor38> I joined in just in time!
12:21:18 <ynpvisitor999®> snow looks a bit powdery from this perspective
12:21:56 <ynpvisitor58> People from Florida building snowmen at 26deg F
12:22:33 <ynpvisitor38> 😊 got give them credit!
12:22:43 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed
12:23:59 <ynpvisitor58> Daisy soon it has been stretching towards the 3 min mark
12:24:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:25:53 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like Bulger ie
12:30:15 <LindaG> I tole her it didn't have to be real big
12:30:19 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, looking at SB's trace, it seems it started erupting end-0106 - which would be the second time it erupted at that time in the 2018 active phase. Speaking about chance!
12:33:24 <LindaG> Is there a time relationship between SB and Giant?
12:33:31 <ynpvisitor58> 0106 that is the one in June that I walked away from in the evening thinking it would not go until late morning
12:33:45 <ynpvisitor999®> not to be mean or anything, but the snowman-under-construction looks like White Pyramid Geyser Dome
12:34:34 <ynpvisitor999®> anyway, I'm happy they're building one. I hope it lasts the winter season
12:34:54 <LindaG> Maybe some coal, a carrot and scarf will help.
12:35:01 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
12:35:15 <ynpvisitor58> I arrived at 0600 in the morning to a steam phase :)
12:35:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I guess it's better than watching only minors, 58 :)
12:36:55 <ynpvisitor58> unfortunately the snow is too dry to work with, I wish them luck
12:37:11 <ynpvisitor101> We’re having fun
12:37:28 <LindaG> That is what counts, fun!
12:37:32 <ynpvisitor999®> that's the most important part of more-or-less anything
12:37:35 <ynpvisitor58> that's what counts
12:44:00 <LindaG> I figure we're not above discussing a snow mound
12:44:49 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if pouring a little bit of water on the snow helps it making stickier
12:45:35 <LindaG> It might help but it might dissolve it if too much is applied
12:45:39 <ynpvisitor58> snow girl in a white gown
12:46:11 <LindaG> They're cute
12:46:35 <LindaG> And they'll have great memories
12:47:15 <ynpvisitor58> yes much fun
12:47:38 <ynpvisitor58> nice
12:48:31 <LindaG> Yay a snowman with a scarf!
12:48:54 <ynpvisitor999®> that looks really nice :D
12:49:17 <LindaG> Excellent jobs kids and adults!
12:49:50 <ynpvisitor58> This will be in the archives for them to look at for a long long time
12:49:59 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed
12:50:18 <LindaG> OLAF II rises from the flakes!
12:50:23 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
12:50:32 <STS> Oh that's fun!
12:50:51 <STS> Took a break and ordered Christmas gifts for my brother and sister
12:51:54 <ynpvisitor58> Linda, are they aware of the capture location?
12:52:40 <ynpvisitor58> Riverside
12:53:16 <LindaG> ? Capture location?
12:55:11 <ynpvisitor58>
12:56:11 <ynpvisitor58> under help and important links click on gosa youtube
12:56:41 <LindaG> Oh, I don't know. I can share it on their facebook page after they're done.
12:57:56 <ynpvisitor999®> I may also note that the 4× timelapse can be slowed down to real-time if you set the speed to 0.25 (though it does skip some frames)
12:59:16 <ynpvisitor58> Are you familiar with it? you can look at the daily captures way back
12:59:57 <LindaG> Thanks yes I do look at daily captures, so I've subscribed to it on youtube
13:00:01 <ynpvisitor101> I have a cool picture!
13:00:23 <LindaG> Looks great
13:00:40 <ynpvisitor58> Thank you Florida Family!!
13:01:26 <ynpvisitor999®> I have watched some overnights and daytime captures in order to enter missing data into GT. If I really have the time and there are some missing daytime entries, I grab the 4× captures for exact durations. Helped me with my "research" into Lion's predictability
13:01:58 <ynpvisitor101> Had a blast!! We will post the pic on our Facebook page!! We named him Snow
13:02:18 <LindaG> I've rewatched some of those debatable giants
13:02:40 <ynpvisitor58> I like it !!! :):)
13:03:06 <LindaG> Snow it is! Thanks you look like you had fun!
13:03:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I like it. I really hope it stays for a long time :)
13:04:10 <LindaG> I guess it can't tip over like olaf
13:04:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
13:05:06 <LindaG> It also goes with the landscape, looks like old faithfuls own snowman!
13:07:31 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger ie
13:09:17 <ynpvisitor58> Linda, what is their FB page?
13:09:29 <ynpvisitor58> or where?
13:09:42 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, Eric, I've noticed that the widget with recent eruptions links to an HTTP URL rather than HTTPS. Same goes for predictions
13:10:51 <ynpvisitor999®> 6m
13:11:22 <ynpvisitor58> split cone steamy
13:11:48 <ynpvisitor101> Our Facebook page is Our Adventure Filled Life
13:12:20 <ynpvisitor58> thanks, great snowman!!!
13:12:31 <ynpvisitor101> Thank you!
13:13:50 <ynpvisitor999®> 9m
13:14:49 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
13:33:29 <ynpvisitor81> I took a screenshot of people with snowman and it's now shareable. Is there a way to attach here. I see links but this is just a photo.
13:34:09 <ynpvisitor107> Where is the snowman now?
13:35:20 <ynpvisitor81> In front of camera in the space between bleachers. He's low to ground..
13:35:26 <ynpvisitor58> Post it on something like imgur then post the link here
13:36:07 <ynpvisitor81> Hmmmm I'll look into it.
13:36:49 <GO GOGGLE> will show after OF
13:39:46 <ynpvisitor58> then click on uploads, upload your in mage, it will give you a posting link
13:40:06 <LindaG> I'll try
13:45:51 <ynpvisitor107> I like it. A little tough to see since he is the wide and short variety.
13:49:33 <LindaG>
13:49:36 <ynpvisitor58> on the imgur page click on the green new post on the left, it will open an upload dialog box, you do not have to sign up, that is for if you want to catalog your uploads
13:50:33 <LindaG> I just posted the picture of Snow above, can't believe I got it to work.
13:50:45 <ynpvisitor58> Nice picture, Linda
13:51:35 <LindaG> 😊
13:53:03 <LindaG> I posted it on their Facebook page, Eric saw it, said it was awesome!
13:55:23 <ynpvisitor69> They will not leave those items there on it, will they?
13:55:41 <ynpvisitor69> I would think critters will run off with them.
13:56:43 <ynpvisitor69> any sign of the fox today?
13:58:38 <ynpvisitor69> It's great they could get any snowman height. Thanks to OurAdventureFilled Life for doing that.
14:00:34 <LindaG> We might end up with fox with a hat o e.
14:00:57 <LindaG> *hat on.
14:08:49 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
14:08:52 <Betty> good afternoon all
14:08:58 <Betty> evening DG
14:13:05 <Betty> is that a snowman??
14:13:37 <Betty> whooo cute
14:13:44 <LindaG> Yes his name is Snow, look at link above
14:13:49 <Betty> too funny
14:14:40 <LindaG> Nice closeup
14:15:08 <Betty> yep, thx
14:17:05 <ynpvisitor69> that's impressive, considering the snow quality. Maybe the next storm will be snowman snow.
14:18:08 <Betty> hi Linda, btw :-)
14:18:16 <LindaG> Yeah basically they made a big pile and then carved it.. he's cute.
14:18:24 <LindaG> Hi Betty!
14:18:47 <LindaG> You missed the snowman festivities.
14:19:10 <Betty> looks like
14:22:10 <GO GOGGLE> should have called it Steamboat
14:22:16 <ynpvisitor69> did they have to add water?
14:22:28 <Betty> funny how different the Steamboat signatures look on seismo
14:22:31 <ynpvisitor69> ha ha, yes GO GOGGLE, that would be good.
14:22:49 <ynpvisitor69> no two have been the same Betty
14:23:13 <ynpvisitor69> who named him? Maybe they would allow a change, given the occasion.
14:23:23 <Betty> yes, they are like snowflakes :-)
14:24:08 <ynpvisitor69> :)
14:24:09 <Betty> how about GIANT STEAMBOAT with GOGGLES?
14:24:38 <ynpvisitor69> for a name? Too long.
14:25:12 <Kevin L™🚂> Army beats Navy!
14:25:34 <ynpvisitor69> in what?
14:25:46 <Kevin L™🚂> Football
14:26:03 <ynpvisitor69> isn't it late in the year for that game?
14:26:06 <Betty> hi Kevin
14:26:16 <Kevin L™🚂> Hi Betty.
14:26:29 <Kevin L™🚂> Always the last regular season game.
14:26:48 <Kevin L™🚂> Other Knights not doing so well though.
14:26:51 <ynpvisitor69> For some reason, I though that was at Thanksgiving time.
14:27:11 <ynpvisitor69> Is Army's team called the Knights?
14:27:19 <Kevin L™🚂> Yes
14:27:26 <ynpvisitor69> What is Navy?
14:27:40 <ynpvisitor69> Congrats on the win btw.
14:28:37 <Kevin L™🚂> I think midshipsmen.
14:29:13 <Kevin L™🚂> Ugh. Golden Knights are getting tarnished. Down 5-1
14:30:17 <Betty> OT?
14:30:55 <Kevin L™🚂> Final :P
14:31:13 <Kevin L™🚂> Did get to see Dan's steam train today.
14:32:09 <Kevin L™🚂> Time to feed 🐓
15:05:06 <LindaG> Our adventure filled life video
15:05:58 <STS> How fun!!!!
15:08:23 <ynpvisitor999®> OF 1707
15:13:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
15:23:07 <ynpvisitor55> Glad somebody fixed Steamboat
15:55:19 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching OF
15:55:56 <GO GOGGLE> night DG
15:56:14 <GO GOGGLE> quitting here too....go something
16:04:55 <ynpvisitor37> I just saw that f&m times were added for early 2018. Graham, what is the updated score for 2018?
16:05:12 <ynpvisitor37> Oops you left.
16:07:11 <STS> Looks like I'm on OF duty
16:12:09 <ynpvisitor10> Yes, Graham updated his count based on the new data
