22:14:03 <ynpvisitor98> I guess it got that one more in before the end of the year.
23:46:49 <ynpvisitor59> Bravo, Steamboat! One more for 2018!
00:18:57 <ynpvisitor101> Christmas SB happened!
03:05:56 <ynpvisitor72> Just to mention seejh webcams are all down, I'm wondering if it's the same provider. That would be good,they could fix it.
03:06:48 <ynpvisitor72> Nice to see steamboat made an appearance.
05:04:14 <Dave from B™> Morning everyone
05:06:35 <ynpvisitor48> morning Dave
05:07:12 <Betty> you saw there was another Steamboat? :-)
05:08:45 <Dave from B™> Yes...good news...shorter interval
05:09:37 <ynpvisitor58> Steamboat # 32 this year will we get another this year?
05:09:42 <Betty> but I hate the cam to be down
05:09:48 <Betty> hi Joe
05:09:57 <Dave from B™> no, but our chase for the record in 2019 will start soon!
05:10:00 <ynpvisitor58> Hello Betty and Dave
05:12:37 <ynpvisitor58> Last night I discovered I do have another life, I like this one better, I hope Century Link finds and fixes its problens.
05:15:37 <Dave from B™> haha Joe
05:15:55 <Betty> :-D
05:17:40 <GO FIX ME> morning. Happy Boxing Day
05:18:14 <Betty> morning Graham, same to you
05:21:05 <Betty> Dome ie
05:24:51 <Dave from B™> Morning Graham
05:26:17 <Mike J> I take it the cam is down
05:26:39 <Betty> yup
05:26:48 <Betty> morning Mike
05:27:07 <Mike J> Oh well, I've always enjoyed watching deeply black geysers in the dead of a moonless night
05:27:26 <Mike J> And morning (or is that afternoon) Betty
05:29:13 <GO FIX ME> 35+ 32 27 21+ is the current count for F&M SB Giant Morning assuming the <2d Giant wasnt right
05:35:11 <Dave from B™> No, Mike...the space time continuum is frozen right now
05:35:22 <Dave from B™> We're on pause
05:36:58 <Mike J> Why do I suddenly hear the sound of someone incessantly, unsuccessfully trying to start a rope-pull motor to get things running again.
05:37:22 <Mike J> *Flashes back to too many summers with a lousy, no-good, worthless lawn mower*
05:42:13 <Dave from B™> Or a hand crank on a old Model T?
05:47:57 <ynpvisitor58> Dave, MikeJ is not that old, but I'll bet he has played around with Continental kits on cars
05:48:41 <Mike J> Age has nothing to do with it. I'm about as mechanically inclined as a muskmelon
05:49:07 <ynpvisitor58> :)
05:49:20 <Dave from B™> hahahaha...we should get along then very well then. My expertise ends at a screwdriver
05:49:58 <GO FIX ME> Giant could get another eruption in before new year. i see tara entered some morning eruptions from the logger, i think it was on 14 before
05:50:38 <Dave from B™> I see Giant winning the race next year
05:51:11 <GO FIX ME> looks like it was based on the Ftn logger data
05:57:18 <GO FIX ME> 35+ 32 27 21+ slight change as one eruption had two entries
05:57:46 <GO FIX ME> no, 35+ 32 27 20+ i removed one Morning report
05:58:29 <Dave from B™> Snow around F&M didn't look encouraging
05:59:42 <Betty> Dome ie
06:09:22 <ynpvisitor114>
06:30:54 <STS> Beautiful morning
06:42:46 <GO FIX ME> dome
06:43:22 <GO FIX ME> OF should be son
06:44:54 <STS> Well there ya go
06:45:21 <STS> That’s beautiful
06:45:39 <STS> Cold makes for pretty scenes :)
06:47:29 <GO FIX ME> a short?
06:48:05 <ynpvisitor75> Looks like one
06:49:30 <ynpvisitor75> Guess we’ll know around 10:00
06:50:02 <GO FIX ME> hopefully GT gets updated so the prediction is better
06:50:08 <Dave from B™> I must not be a real gazer. I refuse to watch the static. I need movement, please:)
06:50:56 <GO FIX ME> store open today ... ready for all the returns?
06:51:46 <Dave from B™> No returns here but now time to look forward to New Year's Eve
06:52:03 <ynpvisitor58> How do you return used lobster?
06:52:50 <Dave from B™> It happens but not often
06:56:36 <ynpvisitor58> I don't think i'd like to see the process of separating 1lb of used lobster from the other "stuff" :)
07:27:31 <GO FIX ME> dome
07:59:58 <ynpvisitor58> Cam is up
08:00:35 <STS> Yee haw!!
08:01:47 <ynpvisitor95> This is wonderful
08:02:04 <ynpvisitor58> Castle ie major
08:02:44 <Dave from B™> woohoo
08:02:56 <Rice> Yipeeee
08:03:08 <ynpvisitor90> thanks for the text that streaming is back!
08:04:16 <STS> OF must have been at least a medium
08:04:18 <ynpvisitor9> Thank you for the text!
08:06:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Boom
08:07:10 <ynpvisitor9> Now that is Fluffy!
08:07:21 <Dave from B™> Looks like a beautiful day at OF
08:07:29 <ynpvisitor81> “It’s so fluffy I wanna die!”
08:16:38 <ynpvisitor69> Wow gorgeous scene
08:16:57 <ynpvisitor69> Thx for text
08:23:20 <Steph> Thanks for the text!!
08:24:02 <LindaG> Ethereal is a word that comes to mind. Hope everyone had a nice christmas.
08:24:31 <Steph> I can't believe even statics are up! Gorgeous!
08:25:43 <GO FUND ME> yeah
08:25:52 <GO FUND ME> my nick worked
08:25:57 <GO FUND ME> hope the new one works too
08:27:29 <ynpvisitor91> it did, i just sent you a check
08:27:51 <Dave from B™> Is that the new Trump mottoo?:D
08:28:36 <ynpvisitor91> The Check Stops Here
08:31:53 <GO FUND ME> thank you 91 .... i assume the check is my usual cam wages?
08:32:48 <ynpvisitor58> WOW! that will be a big check!
08:34:09 <ynpvisitor91> no, i added some extra zeroes on the end as a holiday bonus
08:35:28 <Dave from B™> after the decimal?
08:36:45 <Betty> yeah, thanks to whoever brought the cam back :-D
08:39:32 <GO FUND ME> zfter, before. doesnt make any difference Dave
08:39:37 <GO FUND ME> after
08:40:26 <GO FUND ME> i am assuming its a CenturyLink issue as it got fixed. NPS folks are not working as far as i know, unless they came in to "shutdown" and did something
08:41:13 <GO FUND ME> uhoh we missed a Dome while I was out walking
08:42:39 <ynpvisitor14> Unless it erupted overnight, we're in a Giant window.
08:42:50 <ynpvisitor14> Janet saw a hot period yesterday.
08:44:14 <GO FUND ME> yes, that was good. sounded like a strong but short one. Mastiff to 20' is unusual
08:44:25 <GO FUND ME> not surprised its having ht periods as it is still active
08:44:46 <Steph> I loved seeing all her reports on GT!
08:44:56 <GO FUND ME> no reports from Janet today, not sure if she is leaving?
08:46:19 <GO FUND ME> unfortunate she was heading back to SL when Grand and BH went
08:47:51 <ynpvisitor14> Anyone want to speculate on what feature her 1648 note yesterday under "Other Geyser" referred to?
08:48:17 <Steph> ynpvisitor14, I was wondering that too.
08:49:29 <GO FUND ME> Bronse possible since its something near SIlver
08:49:43 <GO FUND ME> maybe Improbable
08:49:45 <ynpvisitor14> Last night's Steamboat seems to have been a 30 minute water phase.
08:49:57 <ynpvisitor14> There's a pinch in the seismogram trace after 30 minutes.
08:50:07 <ynpvisitor14> Interpreting that as transition to steam phase.
08:50:39 <GO FUND ME> i would be curious if people can get the water phase from the traces ...... i haven't heard commetns about that before
08:50:51 <GO FUND ME> maybe it was a pause too
08:55:48 <ynpvisitor91> Grand
08:55:50 <GO FUND ME> grand
08:57:58 <Betty> yay, Grand
08:59:20 <Betty> Aurum ie static
09:02:05 <ynpvisitor58> 8min
09:04:29 <ynpvisitor58> 10min
09:05:34 <Kevin L™🌵> They knew I was in the depot.
09:05:40 <Betty> Daisy
09:21:33 <ynpvisitor58> I'lll bet thats a GHP
09:21:48 <Steph> Awesome!
09:24:31 <ynpvisitor58> maybe just turban and vent
09:25:20 <ynpvisitor58> first vsteam looked further left
09:32:22 <ynpvisitor27> Peep viewing mode is working.
09:44:03 <Betty> LC
09:45:27 <Betty> OF
10:26:37 <Betty> looks like Bulger
10:28:58 <Betty> I vote for GHP now :-)
10:37:21 <32> the cam was down for Giant?
10:38:02 <Dave from B™> what Giant?
10:38:14 <Dave from B™> nevermind
10:38:16 <32> it's on GT
10:38:39 <32> sure would like confirmation on that.
10:38:50 <Dave from B™> looks like it should be with a ?
10:39:04 <32> well we know it wasn't Grand
10:39:24 <Dave from B™> Could be a GHP in the cold
10:39:41 <32> agreed
10:39:56 <32> especially if they did not stop
10:40:25 <32> very glad there is a logger on it
10:41:34 <32> is that Burger?
10:41:35 <Dave from B™> In the winter, where do you see the Grand area when you are leaving?
10:41:41 <32> BULGER
10:41:57 <32> same as in summer Dave
10:42:10 <Betty> lol
10:42:17 <Betty> GHG 5
10:42:23 <Dave from B™> I thought there was a different way in....I didn't think interchange was used in winter
10:42:39 <32> oh, I could be mistaken then
10:42:48 <32> I thought they used it
10:42:56 <32> did you use it last time you were in Dave?
10:43:19 <Dave from B™> I believe walkway to staff housing is the way in...Graham would know
10:43:41 <32> in and out?
10:44:07 <32> maybe he will pop in again
10:44:42 <Dave from B™> I know it was that way in the 90s...funny I can't remember my 2 gazing trips that are from this decade:(
10:44:46 <32> from the road, while driving in regular season, you can see Giant plume from near Black Sand basin and then again near Biscuit
10:45:23 <32> she does not state where she was
10:46:51 <32> with her comment a ? would have been the right way to go with the post
10:50:24 <Dave from B™> At first, I was thinking just as use leave OF before you get on the interchange. You can see Grand clearly from there
10:50:31 <Dave from B™> use = you*
10:52:10 <32> yes, yet you are saying that is not available in winter perhaps
10:53:37 <Dave from B™> That really bugs me that I can't remember
10:55:08 <32> Graham will know.
10:55:17 <GO FUND ME> you can see the Grand area on the roadway around the intersection even if not on the flyover
10:55:37 <GO FUND ME> i wouldnt think it was a GHP, theres not enough steam from them
10:55:43 <32> we want to know where the coaches drive in winter. Do they use the cloverleaf?
10:55:54 <GO FUND ME> Grotto could be the steam maker that looks like an eruption
10:56:08 <32> it was quite chilly at 0800
10:56:34 <GO FUND ME> i have only been on the ramp there once, they go out and join the main loop by the employee walkway
10:56:51 <32> thanks, that is what Dave thought
10:57:03 <Dave from B™> Thanks Graham
10:57:07 <GO FUND ME> but even so, driving down the road you can see where Grand is. its moot anyway because we know it wasnt Grand based on the interval
10:58:03 <GO FUND ME> there are two spots the snowcoaches have joined the loop i think, but both are up the roadway.
10:58:27 <Dave from B™> All we know is it's most likely a geyser that begins with "G" (and not Grand)
10:58:35 <GO FUND ME> One time we went behind lower hans, and then out past three sisters and headed to Madison on the usual roadway
10:58:49 <GO FUND ME> i think they were messing with a rookie snowcoach driver then
10:59:53 <GO FUND ME> giant and Grotto could look similar i guess from the roadway as they are not far apart
11:00:09 <GO FUND ME> agree a ? is probably the right thing for it
11:00:32 <GO FUND ME> looks like Grotto is ie, not sure how long tho
11:00:44 <GO FUND ME> sad to hear she is leaving already
11:02:45 <Dave from B™> Most winter trips are shorter than summer trips. Graham, you're the lucky one:)
11:06:30 <GO FUND ME> Janet got to see the SB steam phase up close. pics on FB
11:09:58 <GO FUND ME> she says she took a picture of the Giant steam on her other cam
11:11:38 <GO FUND ME> Dave - mu winter trips are shorter than most of my summer trips :) You need to spend more nights in the park
11:13:51 <Dave from B™> Yes...I'm hoping for somewhere around Memorial Day plus a YF Institute class sometime
11:14:11 <Dave from B™> in addition to regular trips and SB prison sentences
11:14:15 <Steph> I'll be there Memorial Day Week too!
11:14:17 <Betty> Dome ie
11:14:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Wish me luck. I am on my way to America's favorite family fun park...
11:15:21 <GO FUND ME> you are going to Yellowstone Kevin?
11:15:29 <Dave from B™> have fun...don't step in any gum and stay seated on Splash Mountain:)
11:15:38 <GO FUND ME> I will try for Memorial Day week too ... want to be there for Dave's first SB
11:15:56 <GO FUND ME> it will be the anniversary of the first observed eruption too
11:16:17 <Dave from B™> I won't be there on the weekend...still trying to figure out 2019 travel schedule
11:17:15 <Dave from B™> We received 3" of snow last night
11:17:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I wish. Get to spend tomorrow with about 1,000,000 people saying hi to Mickey. :p
11:18:19 <Betty> I talked to Thomas, and there is a chance for coming around Labour day :-)
11:18:20 <Kevin L™🌵> NO Splash Mountain or *&*$%$%^& raft ride either.
11:18:31 <Steph> Kevin L™🌵, BUMS!
11:18:53 <Betty> OF
11:19:00 <32> Kevin, I'm surprised you do that, Disney
11:19:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Not my idea for sure.
11:19:19 <Dave from B™> Good news, Betty!
11:19:21 <32> Dave you got more snow than the park
11:19:47 <Dave from B™> This was our first moisture in over 3 weeks
11:20:10 <32> it will settle the dust
11:20:40 <32> steamy near BH?
11:20:53 <32> oops, maybe just runoff from OF
11:21:18 <Dave from B™> That's a lot of winter visitors
11:21:38 <Steph> Right? I can't believe my eyes on the static
11:22:04 <Betty> LC
11:22:06 <32> you guys are funny. Maybe what? 100-125 people?
11:22:57 <Dave from B™> That's a BIG winter crowd...almost the pop of west in the offseason:)
11:23:58 <Dave from B™> Lion?
11:24:14 <Dave from B™> 2 things are steaming back there
11:24:19 <Betty> that´s LC
11:25:08 <GO FUND ME> i think its a lot more than 125 there, there were 30 on cam even after OF was over
11:25:34 <Dave from B™> and, now it's a ghost town again
11:25:45 <GO FUND ME> this is the prime visitation week I think and prime time of day
11:25:52 <Dave from B™> probably 5 deep at the bathroom door know
11:25:54 <Dave from B™> now*
11:25:56 <32> if you rounded to groups of 10, there were not that many people there
11:26:18 <32> they have not yet reached the bathroom as it is at Geyser Grill!
11:26:50 <Dave from B™> That's right...NO VEC potty today
11:27:08 <GO FUND ME> not sure if the bathrooms by the Yurts are still open
11:27:10 <Steph> .
11:29:50 <ynpvisitor41> Perhaps they should save their garbage and deposit it in their congressman’s office.
11:34:57 <32> bathrooms by yurts are closed
11:35:49 <32> since all trips are guided, hopefully the guides are being vigilant about trash
11:38:22 <Betty> Daisy
11:38:27 <ynpvisitor58> Dais
11:39:47 <GO FUND ME> thanks 32, didnt know that
11:43:21 <Betty> ghg5
11:44:59 <ynpvisitor58> Is ghg5 also known as Grove?
11:45:16 <Betty> yup
11:46:44 <ynpvisitor58> Have they named it officaly? Will it be in GT as Grove sometime soon? And thanks Betty
11:46:56 <GO FUND ME> and Purple Haze
11:47:12 <GO FUND ME> it has 2 new names this year
11:47:22 <GO FUND ME> and Scotts book calls it GHG-5
11:47:31 <ynpvisitor58> Ah thanks
11:48:11 <Dave from B™> Becca likes her 5th Edition. Now she has her own copy of the bible
11:48:13 <Steph> I've never heard Purple Haze, only Grove. I had no idea it had two names.
11:48:17 <GO FUND ME> official naming requires submitting the request to USGS but thats unlikely to happen
11:48:50 <GO FUND ME> Bill called it that
11:49:37 <Betty> Micah used that name too
11:51:23 <GO FUND ME> Micah introduced Grove I think
11:52:43 <Steph> Yes, in the email chat thing.
11:55:20 <Dave from B™> Has anyone watched Bird Box?
11:55:31 <GO FUND ME> dome
11:56:09 <GO FUND ME> not me
11:56:41 <ynpvisitor58> bird box movie
11:57:03 <Steph> Is that riverside?
11:57:05 <GO FUND ME> lc
11:57:16 <Betty> yup
11:57:30 <Betty> yup for LC
11:57:30 <Dave from B™> yes Bird Box with Sandra was different
11:59:22 <Dave from B™> How about Dumplin'?
12:00:54 <ynpvisitor58> steph that was a little left for Riverside i think
12:01:28 <Steph> ynpvisitor58, oh thank you! I try to compare with the photo, but don't always know. :lol:
12:01:55 <GO FUND ME> riverside shoudl be big when it goes
12:02:02 <Dave from B™> Joe, are you thinking Grotto?
12:02:17 <Steph> I just didn't know if the wind was the wrong direction or something.
12:02:30 <ynpvisitor58> Yes, Dave
12:03:13 <GO FUND ME> e must have missed it around noon
12:05:18 <Steph> Welp, I gotta go help the hubs with our remodel. Dang it! Hopefully, I'll see you guys on later today. :D
12:05:45 <Dave from B™> Bye Steph...Keep the hammer away from your thumb:)
12:06:24 <ynpvisitor58> i know it is the grotto area like now
12:08:03 <ynpvisitor41> Do they use hammers anymore?
12:16:25 <Dave from B™> Hammers are obsolete?
12:20:58 <GO FUND ME> not when you have some screws left over during assembly
12:22:02 <Dave from B™> alright, Graham. You trying to trick me. I think you're talking about a screwdriver!:D
12:23:26 <ynpvisitor91> when all you have are some screws everything looks like a hammer
12:24:49 <ynpvisitor58> Iworked with a person that believed screwdrivers were for removing wood screws, he would hammer thev wood screws in :)
12:28:52 <Betty> LC
