04:46:00 <Joe> Good afternoon Betty
04:46:24 <Betty> morning Joe
06:10:25 <STS> Morning all
06:10:45 <Betty> morning STS
06:11:02 <STS> Beautiful clear day for viewing :)
06:11:21 <Betty> :-/
06:14:37 <Joe> I have seen many geysers :) just not today :(
06:18:20 <Betty> Dome ie
06:19:00 <Betty> OF
06:38:13 <Betty> Dome ie
06:38:44 <Betty> morning Kevin and Jake
06:39:26 <Betty> how are you, Jake?
06:39:46 <Kevin Lโ„ข๐Ÿ˜Ž๐> Hi Betty
06:42:17 <Joe> Jake, i think Lion was just a roar, Lion has been roaring for over an hour or so, I dont know if this is signaling an end of series or an upcoming initial.
06:48:29 <Joe> NG
06:49:05 <Joe> Maybe I'll check
06:49:25 <Betty> looked like a bee burp to me
06:51:05 <Joe> yep, bee burp
06:57:54 <Jake> hi Betty and all
06:58:35 <Jake> Joe, I didn't know you had visibility on Lion this morning.
06:59:22 <Jake> roaring only happens mid-series, not when leading to an initial
06:59:45 <Jake> leading to the initial is light to heavy splashing
07:00:09 <Jake> so it sounds like it's done
07:02:10 <Joe> Yes there were "roars" around 0805, 0809, 0814
07:03:05 <kcmule> I met your artist friend this year at norris, Jake. I think his name was Bob? he was working with chalk and a big easel, and the subject of gt came up
07:04:36 <Jake> yeah, he mentioned he talked to you
07:04:41 <Betty> hey kcmule :-)
07:05:01 <Jake> he's working at Mammoth this winter too
07:05:38 <kcmule> if you have his website handy you could plug it here, I liked what I saw
07:06:53 <kcmule> hi Betty!
07:07:44 <Jake>
07:07:53 <Jake> he's got a lot of new stuff up since I last looked
07:11:07 <Betty> wow, amazing paintings
07:12:25 <kcmule> great ty. 'waiting for steamboat' captures the moment of pretty much all I did lol
07:12:50 <Jake> he has some story about being yelled at by a ranger for setting up his easel off the boardwalk at Steamboat
07:13:09 <Jake> but setting up ON the boardwalk was taking up too much space from other people
07:13:15 <Jake> I don't recall what his solution was
07:14:33 <ynpvisitor37> saw that - he was by Emerald one day
07:15:31 <Jake> need some sort of clip-on easel for the fence, or 3 hands
07:15:52 <Joe> Jake the times I gave you earlier or from memory but looking back at my recording I have something from lion 0706 too late 0709 then a small burst at 0717 then that short 08 29 through 08:30
07:19:37 <Betty> Dome ie
07:29:46 <Betty> Aurum??
07:30:09 <Betty> I think it wAS
07:30:25 <Betty> Morning Graham
07:30:36 <GO FUND ME (9)> Morning from DEN
07:31:01 <GO FUND ME (9)> Inbound flight is on a ground hold in Jackson due to wind and snow
07:36:39 <Joe> betty
07:38:46 <Joe> Betty, that did look like Aurum at 0829, it was very hard to see but it was there
07:39:05 <Betty> thx
07:39:51 <Joe> Lion
07:40:12 <Betty> Dome
07:43:56 <GO FUND ME (9)> Flight just left JAC, so we might leave den at 1115, 1130 more likely
07:47:55 <kcmule> plenty of time for an ipa and to enjoy the sunshine
07:48:14 <Betty> true :-D
07:51:32 <STS> Of
07:55:44 <ynpvisitor7> Hard to tell a time on that one
07:57:32 <LindaG> Good morning all!
07:57:45 <Betty> hi Linda
07:57:49 <Joe> after studying the recording I believe Lion ini 0705 next 0828 and recent 0939
07:58:16 <LindaG> Hi betty
07:58:22 <Betty> sounds good to me
07:58:39 <LindaG> Nice and snowy, they are lining up at west gate
07:58:47 <Joe> white on white and all white suck
07:59:07 <GO FUND ME (9)> With my mom at the gate otherwise would have an IPA and show up here later. Odd being at the only United gate on C concourse
08:02:03 <LindaG> I'm amazed you saw aurum
08:02:50 <Betty> Dome ie
08:03:05 <Joe> Betty has great eyes, oh to be young again :)
08:03:25 <Betty> young?? thank you :-)
08:12:57 <LindaG> It's amazing how quickly it clears
08:21:29 <Betty> amazing how fast it goes bad again :-(
08:27:59 <Betty> Dome ie
08:33:57 <Betty> I see blue sky
08:39:23 <Betty> Lion
08:40:05 <Betty> blue sky is gone again
08:40:28 <Kevin Lโ„ข๐Ÿ˜Ž๐> Not here! :)
08:41:00 <Joe> :p
08:43:06 <Kevin Lโ„ข๐Ÿ˜Ž๐> It is cold here though. Only 45ยฐ.
09:24:34 <ynpvisitor118> White bugs are winning
09:24:47 <ynpvisitor118> Visibility is waving the white flag of surrender
09:25:25 <ynpvisitor118> All predictable geysers are in the window
09:25:34 <ynpvisitor118> Can't see out the window
09:29:35 <LindaG> Well the white bugs aren't impairing the people
09:30:07 <ynpvisitor118> Brave souls
09:30:50 <LindaG> For sure
09:33:59 <GO FUND ME (9)> On the plane, yeah. Enjoy the white bugs
09:34:18 <LindaG> GO FUND ME (9), safe trip
09:34:33 <STS> OF
09:34:46 <LindaG> Castle seems to be doing something out there. Hard to see
09:34:55 <Betty> yes, safe trip
09:38:13 <STS> Was anyone watching that one closely? I wasn't and am not sure if it's a long or short
09:39:17 <LindaG> No I was staring at castle, looked like it was doing g so ethi g
09:39:42 <STS> I'll just leave it be as is. :)
09:39:48 <LindaG> *something
09:43:41 <ynpvisitor23> lion
09:43:50 <LindaG> Betty, I think castle may be erupting out there
09:49:30 <LindaG> Astle?
09:49:30 <Betty> looks a lot like Castle to me
09:49:39 <LindaG> Castle?
09:50:08 <LindaG> I'll enter it
09:51:36 <Betty> my streaming is choppy, and with this viewing conditions I cannot tell anything at the moment :-p
09:53:07 <LindaG> I've been watching for a while,wanted a second opinion before entering
09:56:46 <LindaG> Entered castle as questionable
10:14:05 <ynpvisitor103> enter the day as questionable!
10:22:24 <Betty> it will be hard to see the next OF
10:23:31 <ynpvisitor103> maybe on static
10:26:47 <ynpvisitor103> Dome is lost for now
10:27:26 <ynpvisitor103> storm is fast moving, maybe it will be gone by 1311
10:30:17 <Betty> hope you are right
10:34:03 <STS> Oh, hello blizzard
10:35:12 <LindaG> Wow hasnt been a good week.
10:37:59 <Joe> Linda the time on Castle looks about right and with the glimpses I saw I believe it is a major
10:45:32 <Betty> Dome ie
10:57:15 <Joe> OF
11:00:36 <Joe> Lion
11:31:12 <Joe> Depression
11:31:32 <Betty> yay
11:33:56 <Betty> Dome
11:39:05 <Joe> looks like Castle is a major
11:40:03 <Joe> is that Grotto or Giant
11:41:45 <Betty> it was there when we almost could not see the treeline. so it is lasting quite a while
11:44:28 <Joe> it popped up about 1329 but may have been there longer
11:46:16 <Joe> now looks like Grotto
11:54:30 <Betty> LC
12:06:42 <ynpvisitor999โ> afternoon all, evening Betty
12:07:18 <Betty> evening DG

12:16:48 <ynpvisitor999โ> hopefully NG responds
12:51:39 <STS> Couldnโ€™t tell if that last OF was a long or short. Darn visibility
13:12:06 <Betty> LC
13:28:58 <ynpvisitor23> Lion
13:29:14 <Betty> yay
13:48:46 <Joe> LC

14:11:57 <ynpvisitor13> Quite the crowd on webcam for cold dreary day lol
14:12:29 <LindaG> Dont these people know its miserable out. ๐Ÿ˜‰
14:12:40 <ynpvisitor26> Not dreary, a fantastic winter day!
14:13:42 <LindaG> ๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜ƒ๏ธ
14:15:31 <LindaG> OF
14:15:48 <ynpvisitor26> Now that is dreary
14:16:18 <LindaG> OF ie is what I should have said
14:19:50 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
14:19:59 <LindaG> Night betty
14:21:29 <ynpvisitor13> Visibility been too poor to see Grand today?
14:21:45 <LindaG> I think so
14:22:34 <LindaG> One minute you can see, next minute not so much
14:22:45 <ynpvisitor13> Hope it hasn't gone Sawmill on us...
14:23:23 <LindaG> Hopefully not. It was snowing pretty fierce for a while.
14:24:00 <ynpvisitor26> If it is not on GT, it did not happen.
14:24:35 <LindaG> ๐ŸŒ
14:25:00 <LindaG> Lion
14:25:53 <Joe> GrandGrand will be1745 +/- 45
14:26:27 <LindaG> Probably dark by then ๐Ÿ˜”
14:26:50 <GO FUND ME (9)> mmm looks nice there
14:27:01 <Joe> if it stays like this we may see it
14:27:29 <Joe> Hi Graham, Home?
14:27:34 <LindaG> Yay, I'm hopi g for bee, but maybe it went in the snow
14:28:25 <LindaG> LC
14:28:56 <Joe> mark it down:)
14:29:32 <LindaG> I did
14:30:22 <GO FUND ME (9)> made it home. flight was 1h50m late leaving Denver but got in 1h10m late so we had a good tailwind
14:30:57 <LindaG> Go tailwind ๐ŸŒ
14:31:10 <Joe> Linda, your Castle was a major based on what we have seen today
14:31:23 <GO FUND ME (9)> looks like the benches sank a bit today, still needs more snow there
14:31:56 <GO FUND ME (9)> not sure what was going on with de-icing in Jackson that delayed the inbound flight
14:32:00 <LindaG> Oh good, thanks for letting me know
14:33:09 <Joe> time for a nap, bbl
14:33:37 <Joe> NG
14:33:38 <LindaG> Joe, I took questionable off and marked it castle as major
14:34:08 <LindaG> NG
14:36:15 <Joe> OK now I'm napping, bbl
14:39:34 <GO FUND ME (9)> thats an early time for NG. wonder if we will see another eruption
14:40:28 <LindaG> Joe marked it and then a minute later I saw it, so there were two plumes a minute a part
14:44:53 <Joe1> Linda are you on delay
14:45:42 <LindaG> Oh, is that it? Yeah I guess I am. I'll remove my entry
14:46:51 <LindaG> Thought you were napping. ๐Ÿ˜‰
14:47:20 <Joe1> you do not have to remove it yousaw it, it willbe a secondary
14:47:40 <LindaG> Too late,
14:48:29 <LindaG> Is that Ng
14:48:38 <LindaG> Or lion
14:48:39 <Joe1> I sometimes nap near atablet>(
14:49:08 <LindaG> Lion ie
14:49:16 <Joe1> thats lion mark it
14:51:06 <Joe1> I'LL get a time later I'm away from my replay machine
14:52:17 <LindaG> Ok
14:53:13 <LindaG> Grand ie
14:53:43 <Joe1> nice
14:54:00 <LindaG> I'll mark it
14:58:44 <GO FUND ME (9)> so prior Lion was a minor?
15:43:38 <STS> Bad viewing, but did I just catch the end of OF?
15:43:49 <STS> Or was that just a bunch of steam!
15:44:15 <ynpvisitor999โ> maybe some preplay
15:49:01 <STS> There it is :)
15:56:57 <ynpvisitor55> We could see bee now
16:05:35 <ynpvisitor999โ> Lion
16:06:14 <ynpvisitor999โ> 11th in series
16:07:17 <ynpvisitor55> That was quick
16:07:32 <ynpvisitor999โ> minor
16:10:15 <ynpvisitor999โ> Lion
16:11:30 <ynpvisitor999โ> Beehive-style plume
16:12:38 <LindaG1> What's the time limit between minor and major?
16:13:09 <ynpvisitor999โ> as in interval or duration?
16:14:00 <LindaG1> Duration
16:17:18 <ynpvisitor999โ> from what I've observed, generally Lion majors have a duration of at least 2m50s, minors up to 2m00s and anything inbetween is a medium (sometimes with major-like intervals, sometimes minor-like)
16:17:31 <GO FUND ME (9)> minors are up to 1min
16:18:07 <GO FUND ME (9)> they an be as tall as majors, sometimes not so
16:26:07 <ynpvisitor999โ> I have to say that this is one of the more interesting Lion series since the Geyser Hill disturbance
16:33:34 <LindaG1> .thx
17:14:45 <ynpvisitor999โ> uhmm... excuse me, OF, but I prefer you not to do so
17:15:39 <STS> What was that?
17:16:09 <ynpvisitor999โ> most likely preplay and bad wind direction
17:16:34 <STS> Lol, it was kind of fun
17:19:33 <ynpvisitor999โ> Lion
17:21:06 <STS> Lol, this is terrible wind
17:21:42 <ynpvisitor999โ> if it wasn't for the left wind earlier I would totally have thought that 1919 Lion was Beehive
17:22:08 <ynpvisitor999โ> #13 in series, too
17:22:39 <STS> Thatโ€™s the most Iโ€™ve seen recently
17:25:01 <ynpvisitor999โ> 7 eruptions to go and it will surpass the most eruptions in a series this year
17:26:35 <STS> I keep thinking OF is going, but itโ€™s just the wind
17:27:58 <GO FUND ME (9)> we had 19 on Sept 18/19 after Ear Spring
17:28:28 <GO FUND ME (9)> another 20 and it could be close to the record
17:29:28 <STS> Thatโ€™s OF?
17:29:41 <ynpvisitor999โ> I think so, STS
17:29:42 <STS> Big fluffy
17:30:04 <STS> Lol, oh wow
17:30:26 <ynpvisitor999โ> Good Ol' Fluffy :)
17:30:58 <GO FUND ME (9)> enjoy lions and Bee ... i am done for the day. See you NY Eve
17:31:08 <ynpvisitor999โ> night Graham
17:31:15 <GO FUND ME (9)> i guess DG is already there
17:31:22 <ynpvisitor999โ> 0331 right now
17:31:34 <GO FUND ME (9)> dont you ever sleep?
17:31:57 <ynpvisitor999โ> let's just say my sleep schedule is all over the place...
17:32:28 <GO FUND ME (9)> at least yu are off school now
17:32:30 <GO FUND ME (9)> goodnight
17:32:37 <ynpvisitor999โ> I could even go so far as saying I don't have a sleeping schedule during holidays
17:33:21 <ynpvisitor999โ> Anyway, I'm off for today too. Have fun watching dancing steam.
18:44:00 <LindaG> Why does bee torture me like this
18:45:56 <ynpvisitor30> It's just what geysers do. Torture you.
18:46:22 <ynpvisitor30> Torture us is better.
18:46:23 <LindaG> ๐Ÿ˜Š
18:47:03 <LindaG> What the saying, "misery loves company"
18:48:41 <ynpvisitor30> That's the saying - At least this chat is full of good company.
18:49:18 <LindaG> I think its steaming
18:56:44 <LindaG> Well bee wins again. Have a goodnight and good luck
18:57:38 <ynpvisitor30> Good night Linda - Sleep well - Hope you see Bee tomorrow in the light.
19:01:00 <ynpvisitor18> Old Fluffy :)
19:17:04 <Kitt> Hey Joe, how is the weather in Thermopolis?
19:17:20 <Kitt> The wind is howling thru Worland
19:17:54 <Kitt> originally we thought it was the train, but then it kept getting louder
19:18:12 <Kitt> I am glad I don't have to be driving anywhere tonight
19:18:21 <Joe> Same here plus we had some snow
19:19:03 <Kitt> If we had snow, it must have been very little, but we still have about 5 inches on the ground from Thanksgiving
19:19:54 <Kitt> I think Worland averages strong wind maybe 20 days the entire year
19:20:20 <Kitt> Unlike Casper
19:20:46 <Joe> we had the thanksgiving snow then 2 inches about a week ago and now 2 to 3 inches
19:23:22 <Kitt> but our snow never went away
19:23:33 <Joe> i think iy makes the news in Casper when it does not blow
19:23:59 <Kitt> no that is when you fall over, because the wind isn't holding you up
19:24:27 <Kitt> I missed Beehive by 18 minutes last night
19:24:37 <Joe> our thanks giving snow was almost gone when we got our last
19:24:38 <Kitt> was hoping to see it tonight
19:25:21 <Kitt> we have had patches of ice and snow on our streets that haven't been plowed, since before Thanksgiving
19:25:50 <Joe> I was hoping for a daytime Bee but Bee is Bee
19:26:39 <Joe> Our streets have been good, a lot better than yours
19:28:35 <Joe> I hope things stay clear in Worland for the next two weeks, i have sugery in worland on the 10 th
19:28:45 <Kitt> I am hoping for Bee within the hour
19:29:37 <Kitt> hope your surgery goes well
19:30:11 <Joe> thanks, left shoulder replacement
19:31:10 <Joe> they did my right shoulder 1 1/2 years ago
19:31:47 <Joe> I like your hospital
19:35:06 <Kitt> will listen for indy ping
20:15:01 <ynpvisitor3> is that indy?
20:20:15 <ynpvisitor3> maybe just bubblers and bee splashes
20:29:25 <ynpvisitor3> is that Castle?
20:31:24 <ynpvisitor30> I don't know. Was thinking the same but scheduled for 01:14.
20:36:02 <ynpvisitor3> maybe Castle is just splashing a lot also
20:36:35 <ynpvisitor3> Old Faithful
20:36:48 <ynpvisitor3> ie
20:36:52 <ynpvisitor12> Old Fluffy you mean :)
21:06:09 <ynpvisitor3> looks like it is getting gusty at Old Faithful also
21:06:20 <ynpvisitor3> night
