03:56:57 <ynpvisitor59> Grrr you took my NG away from me today
03:57:41 <ynpvisitor59> One of the mid cycle ones. Lion soon?
03:59:38 <Joe> nothing to be seen until about 0530 but fog and snow
04:01:00 <ynpvisitor59> Ok, thanks. So no overnight times to help me. Will head out to Grand in its window. Breakfast is 0630
04:01:48 <ynpvisitor59> Glad you caught NG on two days tho. May have a chance in daylight if Lion starts soon
04:02:56 <Joe> Ok yes nothing seen last night but OF &NG NG just puffed 3min ago , jusy a puff
04:07:03 <Joe> the 0541 was a nice minor and 0557 is time of the puff
04:19:54 <Joe> Per Jeff from ct's formula next lion 1113 =+/- 3h
04:22:39 <ynpvisitor59> I am guessing that was the first rise and boil 20min after the eruption
04:23:44 <ynpvisitor59> Could go any time, yesterdays interval was under 10
04:24:03 <ynpvisitor59> O vote for soon so NG opportunity is in daylight
04:24:29 <Joe> yes,
04:24:56 <ynpvisitor59> It's hard to stay out after dark. At NG last night I was "hoping" it didn't go into extended fill as I would have wanted to stay
04:25:31 <ynpvisitor59> Several inches of snow last night, maybe 3 to 4
04:25:47 <ynpvisitor59> Its warm though
04:27:25 <Joe> If the snow is over it should be a good viewing day
04:29:52 <LindaG> Good morning. So it dropped from 52 tom12 degrees in less than 24 hours. Yellowstone is warmer than here.
04:30:21 <LindaG> *to
04:31:24 <Joe> we all do Davespeak here Linda
04:32:06 <LindaG> 😊
04:34:04 <ynpvisitor59> Supposed to be -5 tomorrow morning
04:34:26 <LindaG> Here or there?
04:36:13 <ynpvisitor59> Here, OF
04:46:31 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
04:46:55 <ynpvisitor999> morning all
04:47:05 <Dave from B™> Starting snowing here at 0430. Predicting 3-5". It is really coming down now
04:51:36 <Joe> Hi Dave, I thought I understood tantalus creeh until the past 12 hours
04:51:55 <Joe> creek*
04:52:43 <Dave from B™> MA reminded me that the Tantulus creek at the gauge point gets almost all the runoff from every feature in the Porcelain basin and the Back Basin
04:53:00 <ynpvisitor8> I hear the blood moon was not visible at OF, I made the right decision to sleep
04:53:25 <Joe> if you look at it over 2 months the last 12 is strange, thanks for the MA report
04:54:45 <Dave from B™> Maybe Whirligig is the culprit
04:55:09 <ynpvisitor999> doubt it, Dave
05:00:55 <Joe> OF
05:01:23 <Dave from B™> DG, what do you think?
05:02:50 <ynpvisitor8> About to leave SL. Will wave as I trudge by. Was OF long?
05:03:24 <ynpvisitor999> most likely culprit of the gauge's height change is snowmelt
05:04:29 <Dave from B™> It's just weird to think of snow melting in the middle of the night at 7500 feet in the middle of winter
05:04:29 <Joe> OF looked long Graham, we will look for you going by
05:06:04 <LindaG> Morning Dave and DG
05:07:40 <LindaG> So that was NG this morning. I saw it but in the dark I lose track of what is where.
05:09:48 <ynpvisitor999> morning Mike
05:10:25 <Mike J> Morning. (No caffeine yet, can't say if it is good or not.)
05:11:19 <Joe> one time DaveM caught NG every 31 min ~ for quite some time it was fun to watch, I forget exactly when. While Dave is running the cam we get to see many things we do not usually see.
05:11:20 <ynpvisitor999> ~~~~
05:11:58 <Joe> tthere goes g
05:12:02 <Joe> Graham
05:12:06 <Dave from B™> I missed him again
05:12:12 <LindaG> Was that Graham waving gone now
05:12:19 <Joe> yes
05:13:02 <Joe> no snow melts under Graham's feet :)
05:13:15 <LindaG> Dave from B™, he was on a mission if you blinked he was gone
05:16:43 <Joe> Graham, 0710:46 to 0711:22, that included stopping to wave.
05:17:59 <Joe> no spot to enter that into GT :)
05:18:59 <Joe> NG is making steam
05:22:49 <Joe> more ng steam
05:23:09 <ynpvisitor999> maybe extended overflow with boiling spells?
05:23:47 <Joe> Graham is on his way for an eyes on
05:25:12 <ynpvisitor999> Graham did catch Dome ie
05:25:34 <Joe> nice
05:28:59 <Joe> LC ie
05:33:04 <ynpvisitor999> it seems Graham has arrived at the Lion group
05:35:19 <Joe> SNowblower static
05:38:12 <ynpvisitor999> BH 0724: "Boiling at depth. No bubblers"
05:48:48 <ynpvisitor999> looks like an extended fill for NG
05:50:52 <CraigC> morning
05:50:58 <ynpvisitor999> morning Craig
05:51:08 <CraigC> hey 999
05:54:46 <ynpvisitor8> I may miss Grsnd since NG is in extended fill
05:55:06 <ynpvisitor8> It esd cold on the prior rise, no boiling
05:55:15 <ynpvisitor8> Was
05:55:41 <ynpvisitor999> how's it currently looking?
05:55:49 <ynpvisitor999> any boiling?
05:56:16 <ynpvisitor8> Still up. To early for bubbling
05:56:58 <ynpvisitor999> thanks. Hopefully it'll go, would be nice for your trip
05:57:20 <CraigC> 8 is Graham?
05:57:49 <Joe> yes Craig
05:58:00 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
05:58:49 <ynpvisitor999> how's Grove looking, 4 months after the GH disturbance?
06:02:27 <ynpvisitor999> Dep
06:03:47 <ynpvisitor999> snowblower
06:05:43 <ynpvisitor8> Its eruptions are nice. Doing lots of splashing too
06:06:13 <ynpvisitor8> Ng still up
06:06:32 <Joe> tks Graham
06:07:04 <ynpvisitor999> thanks :)
06:09:58 <ynpvisitor8> Ng dropped no boil
06:10:04 <ynpvisitor999> :(
06:10:15 <LindaG> Dome static
06:10:20 <ynpvisitor999> maybe affected by that Lion burp a few seconds ago?
06:10:37 <ynpvisitor8> Big lion n splashes too
06:12:54 <ynpvisitor999> Lion ini
06:14:57 <Joe> my stream froze
06:16:14 <ynpvisitor1> Mine is still working
06:19:11 <Joe> mine is a local problem one computer has it one does not
06:21:04 <ynpvisitor1> Looks like everything is going to be white now for a while.
06:23:04 <Dave from B™> 819 NG minor
06:23:10 <Dave from B™> per Graham
06:23:31 <Joe> nice
06:26:29 <ynpvisitor999> oh c'mon NG...
06:38:31 <LindaG> Happy skiers
06:39:00 <LindaG> I guess they are really happynwalkers
06:40:23 <Joe> I'd be skiing, that is what those boards and snow is for, maybe no one told them
06:41:00 <Dave from B™> I thought they were just to help you stand up
06:41:14 <Joe> :)
06:41:20 <LindaG> I think they were photographers plugging tripods. Looked like skins though
06:41:53 <Dave from B™> Tomorrow around noon, my wife and I will be sneaking into the park to explore around Mammoth for a couple of hours
06:42:12 <Joe> nice Dave
06:42:30 <LindaG> *skiis
06:43:34 <LindaG> That's exciting Dave. Wish I could.
06:44:13 <Kevin L™🌵> But who is going to run the store?
06:44:38 <LindaG> Hi kevin
06:44:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
06:45:49 <Dave from B™> They'll manage fine without me
06:46:52 <Joe> It'll be the boss is away sale day, store manager has many items on sale, remember the boss is away
06:47:50 <Dave from B™> haha Joe. that is why it's nice to have my daughter running the market
06:47:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Icelandic Cod: Sale $1.99lb!
06:48:30 <Dave from B™> Hey...you forgot a number in their!
06:48:35 <Dave from B™> there*

06:50:37 <CraigC> lol
06:53:25 <Dave from B™> Actually reg price is $14.79/lb on fresh
06:53:57 <Dave from B™> It is a big focus of our fresh dept this year
07:14:47 <LindaG> Hope it's not a breakfast bee today!
07:15:05 <Dave from B™> Now, they changed our forecast to 6"
07:15:50 <Joe1> Daves sale, https://imgur.com/a/pkXCU8o not official second tuesday this week :)
07:16:16 <ynpvisitor999> haha
07:16:25 <LindaG> 😆
07:16:27 <CraigC> LOL Joe
07:17:18 <Dave from B™> ouch. you even stole my logo:)
07:17:40 <ynpvisitor999> though I do have to say the new logo would've been much more noticeable using Comic Sans :P
07:18:36 <ynpvisitor999> oh, Grand 0859 G1Q | 11m
07:18:53 <Kevin L™🌵> I sure miss the Showboat Buffet where they had Cod filets, huge shrimp, and trout filets with incredible brownies and pecan pie for desert. We used to have our monthly highway design meetings there.
07:19:32 <Dave from B™> Nice, how did Graham say Giant looked yesterday?
07:19:36 <Eric> Good Morning :-D
07:19:42 <Dave from B™> Kevin, that was probably 20 years ago!
07:19:47 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
07:20:10 <Kevin L™🌵> It was $3 if that gives you any idea.
07:20:13 <Eric> Wow....busy mmorning for Graham!
07:20:37 <ynpvisitor999> Grotto was in marathon yesterday, still ie at 1434 after initially being noted ie @ 0930
07:21:04 <ynpvisitor999> 1615*
07:21:05 <CraigC> Hey Eric
07:21:15 <Eric> Nice ad Joe :-P
07:21:20 <Kevin L™🌵> And it was 40 years ago Dave.
07:23:17 <Dave from B™> I'll make sure my daughter gets the ad, in case anyone here trys to pull a fast one:)
07:24:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Eric will hack your FB page and post it.
07:24:41 <Eric> It's not a bad ad :-D Marketing is all about getting butts in the door
07:27:32 <Dave from B™> Nobody coming to the market today. It's a whiteout outside.
07:31:03 <LindaG> Lion
07:31:06 <ynpvisitor76> Lots of steam at Lion
07:31:37 <ynpvisitor76> Woah! Did the camera just move? Do we have a camop?
07:32:03 <LindaG> Is that ng?
07:32:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I guess there must have been a bad "non call" yesterday. I see a Louisiana eyecare center is offering free eye exams and glasses to all NFL referees in need.
07:32:27 <Dave from B™> :D You could say that:)
07:32:57 <LindaG> I guess not lion
07:33:15 <Kevin L™🌵> I saw something on the cam but it looks like it is set in the wide view.
07:33:58 <ynpvisitor76> Yeah. I wonder if snow fell and hit it. I'm 90% sure I saw movement, but I was focusing on a different screen at the time.
07:34:09 <ynpvisitor2> Looks like Lion now
07:34:29 <ynpvisitor2> I am on delay
07:34:37 <LindaG> Guess I'm onndelay
07:34:39 <ynpvisitor999> Lion 0928
07:34:58 <ynpvisitor76> I see nothing at Lion now. You probably saw what we saw before. We must have just caught the tail end through the fog.
07:35:31 <LindaG> Same here nothing g
07:36:23 <ynpvisitor2> It is a tall steamcloud
07:36:35 <ynpvisitor2> with a defined right side
07:36:57 <Kevin L™🌵> I can't see anything either.
07:37:13 <ynpvisitor76> Yeah ynpvisitor2, that's exactly what we saw
07:37:19 <ynpvisitor2> screen froze
07:37:45 <ynpvisitor2> so it froze after Lion started
07:37:46 <LindaG> We commented at 9:31
07:38:02 <ynpvisitor2> I am guessing it was a minor
07:38:23 <Casey> Graham posted in basin 928
07:38:24 <ynpvisitor2> weird it froze at just that moment
07:38:34 <Casey> It was ie 3 minutes before the fog cleared enough for us to see it
07:42:34 <LindaG> Dome
07:42:56 <LindaG> Graham beat me to it
07:47:05 <ynpvisitor2> Is that blob on the radar missing you Dave?
07:47:57 <Dave from B™> NO
07:48:06 <Dave from B™> 3"...headed to 6"
07:48:11 <ynpvisitor2> I am sorry
07:49:56 <Jake> SLC getting consistent snow as well
07:50:03 <Jake> not whiteout heavy though
07:50:36 <Kevin L™🌵> We have wind.... 😎
07:51:03 <LindaG> We have high wind. Dropped 40 degrees si ce yesterday. Brreer
07:51:39 <LindaG> I think the whole country is getting hit with something
07:52:43 <Kevin L™🌵> We are pretty chilly too. Only 53°.
07:53:29 <LindaG> It was 11 this morning, slowly rising g
07:54:28 <Jake> the radar on this page shows nothing over YNP
07:54:43 <Jake> therefore it is not snowing there
07:55:21 <ynpvisitor2> so far Worland is 32 degrees and cloudy with a light breeze
07:55:54 <Eric> That is some serious arm swing!
07:56:25 <LindaG> Lol like walking around isnt enough exercise
07:56:29 <ynpvisitor2> oh, on the streaming
07:56:36 <ynpvisitor2> she is getting her exercise
07:56:40 <Eric> probably trying to keep their arms warm :-D
07:58:10 <LindaG> Watching bee, nothing happening yet
08:02:15 <Dave from B™> ,.,.,.,
08:02:35 <ynpvisitor2> Time for breakfast
08:12:41 <LindaG> OF ie at 10:11
08:13:14 <Eric> I assume graham is keeping an eye on BH this morning too
08:14:01 <LindaG> Hope so, looks like a little steam
08:14:01 <Eric> The hill is a nice place to hang out when bee is due, you have a lion series and NG plus Dome is active!
08:14:03 <ynpvisitor9> OF was ie at 10:10 as well
08:14:39 <LindaG> Thx
08:15:06 <Kevin L™🌵> And Depression plus Aurum
08:15:20 <Eric> yep...those too
08:15:29 <LindaG> Dome static
08:15:49 <Eric> Almost as many thermal features in view there as the rest of the world has to offer :-D
08:16:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I could spend a full week on the hill and not get bored.
08:17:13 <Eric> I agree Kevin...geyser hill is one of the most amazing spots on the planet.
08:18:52 <CraigC> When you pull in at lower Hams... and look at GH from that perspective, it is boggling that so much is there in such a relatively small area
08:19:44 <Eric> Yep..and the crazy part is the complexity of all those diverse systems in such a geographically tiny area.
08:31:51 <LindaG> Might be bubblers steam on static
08:32:36 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
08:32:40 <LindaG> Lion ie
08:35:25 <LindaG> Nice lion
08:51:11 <ynpvisitor999> evening Betty
08:51:31 <Betty> evening DG, Morning all others
08:52:02 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
08:52:13 <Betty> hey Dave from B™
08:56:20 <Eric> Hi Betty
08:56:33 <Eric> Daisy
08:56:41 <Betty> hi Eric
08:56:58 <Eric> I assume graham will post it...bet he was heading down to giant
08:57:15 <ynpvisitor1> Daisy
08:57:40 <LindaG> Good morning betty
08:58:05 <Betty> morning Linda
08:59:39 <BSK> News says Billings roads are nasty over your way, Dave.
09:01:11 <Dave from B™> It snowed 4" in about 5 hours....sounds about right, BSK
09:01:36 <Eric> You should have a sidewalk sale dave :-DDD
09:02:11 <Eric> pack all of your parking lot snow into waste height tables.
09:02:18 <Eric> waist height
09:02:21 <Eric> hahaha
09:02:30 <Dave from B™> hahahaha....I think I'm the only one who hasn't shoveled the sidewalk today
09:02:56 <Eric> shoveling the snow is a good workout!
09:08:15 <Dave from B™> Eric, can you pm me please...page doesn't like me
09:11:20 <Casey> I'm embarrassed to say this. I have this on my (really) bad monitor. Is that a cookie or a ladybug, Kevin?
09:11:59 <Dave from B™> :D:D
09:12:03 <Dave from B™> What do you think?
09:12:09 <Kevin 🍪> It is a cookie. I am teaching my daughter how to make lebkuchen.
09:12:18 <CraigC> I thought it was a rugby ball
09:12:21 <Dave from B™> If you know Kevin it is more likely to be food than a bug
09:12:45 <Betty> I thought it was a pumpkin
09:12:59 <Casey> https://www.amazon.com/1500-Live-Ladybugs-Guaranteed-Delivery/dp/B00533KOIC
09:13:56 <Casey> If these show up at your door Kevin... it wasn't me
09:14:22 <LindaG> Bee is steaming by indy hole
09:14:51 <Casey> Just a little steam on static there.
09:15:11 <ynpvisitor999> could be Bee itself or BHCCI
09:15:17 <LindaG> It was steadier a minute ago
09:28:23 <Kevin 🍪> :p
09:28:47 <LindaG> Seriously I have the circle
09:29:09 <Kevin 🍪> Dave broke the cam
09:30:58 <LindaG> Bribe him with a cookie
09:33:05 <LindaG> I'm back
09:33:26 <ynpvisitor999> Lion
09:33:43 <Kevin 🍪> Looks like Graham is at Giant so no BH report from him
09:34:40 <Kevin 🍪> Streaming is back
09:34:40 <LindaG> I'm watching bee
09:35:09 <Dave from B™> DG, the page never lies:)
09:35:56 <ynpvisitor999> fair enough. You caught me :D
09:37:01 <Casey> A quitter would quit denying quitting
09:37:23 <LindaG> It's so nice to see all those people in their snow suits having fun!
09:37:26 <Eric> Graham is going to have a long run from Giant :-P
09:37:56 <ynpvisitor999> if Indy goes, of course
09:38:48 <LindaG> He'll have to pick them up and put them down. Lol
09:39:28 <LindaG> Little steam on static, not much
09:43:14 <ynpvisitor999> LC
09:44:37 <Eric> OF
09:45:27 <Joe> I'm delayed
09:45:34 <ynpvisitor999> that was some nice OF jetting
09:49:29 <LindaG> Critter out there?
09:50:50 <Joe> yep cant make it out
09:56:21 <Kevin 🍪> One of Dave’s lobsters that escaped.
09:57:17 <Dave from B™> He's looking for liquid water
10:04:13 <ynpvisitor999> apparantly HK is going to see some big geysers tomorrow in New Zealand
10:05:33 <ynpvisitor999> bathtub 1154
10:06:15 <Eric> Nice...There have been a few gazers down in new zealand lately
10:06:39 <Eric> Getting in the nice summer months there while we freeze here :-D
10:07:15 <Kevin L™🌵> 😎
10:10:01 <ynpvisitor999> I wouldn't be surprised if HK will be going to Waimangu and its surroundings
10:13:46 <LindaG> Weak stream on aurum? http://imgur.com/gallery/quOEUyr
10:18:17 <ynpvisitor999> I have no idea, Linda. Though most likely it's Giantess steam
10:19:08 <Betty> looks much better now
10:19:23 <LindaG> Thx been trying to catch aurum in the act
10:19:34 <Betty> Aurum
10:19:35 <Betty> .
10:19:36 <Betty> .
10:20:26 <Betty> have a look on static
10:20:58 <Betty> though it already changed view again
10:21:53 <ynpvisitor999> GROTTO FOUNTAIN!
10:21:54 <LindaG> I think I got it I'll post
10:21:56 <Michael> Grotto Fountain! It's alive!
10:22:05 <Betty> fun
10:25:23 <LindaG> Betty, aurum? http://imgur.com/gallery/xW2wJdI
10:25:40 <Betty> yup
10:26:06 <LindaG> Yay! Finally
10:26:37 <Betty> :thumbsup::D
10:28:01 <Dave from B™> wow Grotto Fountain...that's a reaL FIND
10:29:30 <Betty> you were there when we saw it with DaveM?
10:30:36 <Dave from B™> Yes, I was. My only sighting
10:30:54 <Betty> mine too. It was great
10:31:23 <Dave from B™> Mr Grotto, Brian, only saw 1 this year and he spent hundreds of hours down there
10:31:50 <Betty> Brian Gormer?
10:33:48 <Dave from B™> Not sure what his last name is...He's from Crawford, TX
10:34:24 <Betty> he spends a lot of time at F&M too
10:34:54 <LindaG> Lion
10:34:57 <Dave from B™> That must be a different Brian
10:35:04 <Betty> Lion
10:35:07 <Michael> I must be lagged...
10:35:17 <LindaG> Maybe just a roar
10:35:24 <ynpvisitor999> the latter most likely
10:36:30 <Betty> it was just a Lion cough
10:37:35 <ynpvisitor999> another roar
10:38:36 <ynpvisitor999> another try
10:40:19 <Michael> I'm trying to decide where I would stand on the devil's bargain: Grotto Fountain reactivates but Giant becomes scarce.
10:40:45 <ynpvisitor104> Can anyone tell me where Solstice Geyser is located as I have old edition of book and couldn't find it on internet search?
10:40:45 <Michael> Fortunately we have evidence from 2007 that both can be happy at the same time.
10:40:54 <Eric> coyote
10:40:56 <Eric> .
10:40:58 <Eric> .
10:41:15 <LindaG> I saw something before out by OF
10:41:23 <Eric> out of camera now
10:41:24 <LindaG> he gets around
10:42:39 <LindaG> Uh ih snow
10:43:10 <LindaG> Lion
10:43:12 <ynpvisitor25> Grotto Fountain, that is a rare one these days
10:43:18 <LindaG> Cough
10:43:40 <Michael> I think Solstice is in the vicinty of "New Geyser" between Beauty Pool and the Purple Pools.
10:43:54 <Michael> It may be a more recent name for an existing UNNG, I forget.
10:43:54 <ynpvisitor104> Thanks
10:44:23 <Eric> South grotto fountain too!
10:44:39 <ynpvisitor25> it's an old name, Solstice
10:44:40 <Betty> Solstice is near Oblong, on the beauty pool side of the river
10:45:20 <Eric> Solstice is on this map: https://geysertimes.org/map.php?geyserID=518
10:45:49 <Dave from B™> Michael, I would not trade Giant for GF
10:45:55 <Betty> South Grotto Fountain!!!
10:46:30 <Dave from B™> Graham is really having fun
10:46:32 <Michael> Thanks Eric.
10:47:02 <ynpvisitor104> Thanks everyone!
10:47:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum Knew I was gone
10:47:18 <Betty> thanks, Kevin
10:48:09 <ynpvisitor999> I hope this image helps a bit: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1IHm7-Asi1Vvfo0YFBTWbn1cGFD62Ce4q
10:49:31 <LindaG> Kevin I posted pic of aurum above
10:49:46 <Kevin L™🌵> I saw it.
10:49:56 <LindaG> Steam is getting strong on bee
10:50:34 <ynpvisitor104> Thanks 999
10:50:52 <LindaG> And then it stops 🙁
10:51:10 <ynpvisitor999> it does that :)
10:52:34 <Dave from B™> Graham found a bathtub
10:53:47 <Dave from B™> Without looking, what does everyone think the snowcoach tour from Snow Lodge to Canyon and back costs?
10:54:02 <ynpvisitor999> and some more Bee splashing
10:54:09 <BSK> $120
10:54:47 <ynpvisitor25> $90
10:55:21 <Dave from B™> I'll wait for a few other guesses
10:56:04 <LindaG> $140
10:56:20 <ynpvisitor25> does it do a loop Dave, or go back the same way it goes?
10:56:48 <Dave from B™> Based on the webpage it seems they go to Hayden and then turn around
10:57:05 <ynpvisitor25> odd, you would think they would loop around the lake
10:57:42 <Michael> Should we send Graham to Plume or Sawmill this afternoon?
10:57:51 <Dave from B™> That surprised me too but I wonder if Craig Pass can be too hard to manuever
10:57:59 <ynpvisitor25> yeah, because he obeys orders so well
10:58:16 <Dave from B™> haha Michael. I think Sawmill is easier to bring back to life but I pick Plume
10:58:20 <LindaG> We could coax him
10:58:21 <Betty> yes, Michael!
10:58:28 <ynpvisitor25> I was thinking that Dave, yet they run snow coaches up from South every day
10:58:43 <Dave from B™> That's true, they do.
10:58:50 <Dave from B™> You ready............
10:58:53 <BSK> And they go to West Thumb, too...
10:59:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Just wear a green jumpsuit, yellow hardhat, and carry a clipboard and you can go anywhere.
10:59:03 <Dave from B™> $258
10:59:03 <BSK> Ready
10:59:10 <BSK> *cough cough*
10:59:11 <ynpvisitor25> for ONE person???
10:59:13 <LindaG> Cough
10:59:14 <ynpvisitor25> No freaking way
10:59:27 <Dave from B™> And, a 15% gratituty is expected
10:59:34 <Dave from B™> Yep
10:59:37 <ynpvisitor25> is that for one person?
10:59:42 <ynpvisitor25> that is insane
10:59:57 <Dave from B™> 1 adult
11:00:02 <Dave from B™> senior is $10 off
11:00:07 <ynpvisitor25> Rich people's paradise
11:00:11 <LindaG> Woot
11:00:11 <Kevin L™🌵> I can do two people roundtrip from Vegas to Idaho Falls for that!
11:00:22 <ynpvisitor999> $10 off? Such a discount!
11:00:47 <Dave from B™> Yeah..one of my bucket list trips is to see Canyon in winter. That's what got me to looking at snowcoach stuff
11:01:00 <ynpvisitor25> Definitely go from West
11:01:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Visit Yellow$tone in the Winter...
11:01:11 <BSK> I paid FAR less than that to go to Canyon in winter from West. FAR less.
11:01:12 <ynpvisitor25> I think you can do it for $130
11:02:00 <Dave from B™> Yeah. I was thinking from Mammoth but Xanterra isn't running that route this year since hotel is closed in Mammohth
11:02:25 <ynpvisitor25> I can't imagine Xanterra would be much less from Mammoth
11:02:27 <ynpvisitor25> Same miles
11:02:28 <BSK> Yeah, I think I paid around $120 a couple years ago to go to Canyon & Norris from West. Drifting and poor visibility precluded the usual run into the Hayden that day.
11:02:51 <ynpvisitor25> $130 is the lowest I have found this year
11:03:18 <Dave from B™> There was another company that was out of Gardiner that was 169 to Canyon or OF. First person to book for that day gets to decide where you go
11:03:19 <ynpvisitor25> Dave from B™, just wait until the road opens and go that first weekend, to Canyon, in spring
11:03:25 <Betty> Oblong?
11:03:28 <BSK> $130 doesn't surprise me. $258 does!
11:03:42 <ynpvisitor25> $258 is loony
11:03:45 <Dave from B™> 25, will the falls still be frozen then?
11:04:22 <ynpvisitor25> usually, have you never gone then?
11:04:46 <BSK> It's still frozen in April, but it's not the same as January/February
11:05:36 <ynpvisitor999> Grotto finally starting>?
11:05:37 <ynpvisitor25> I've been in winter, I much prefer the canyon in spring/summer
11:06:24 <Dave from B™> 25, I haven't been to Canyon that early. I bet June is the earliest I've been to Canyon
11:06:57 <ynpvisitor25> well put spring on your bucket list. Very few people and still lots of snow, and ice on the base of the falls
11:07:17 <Jake> it seems like Graham always sees something "new" when he goes in the winter
11:07:30 <ynpvisitor999> Looks like HK went to Rotorua. Pohutu 0803ns NZT
11:07:43 <Michael> Wait, so Grotto Fountain has been going for the last 45 minutes?!!
11:07:46 <Dave from B™> Thanks 25.
11:07:54 <ynpvisitor999> Oh, and a 40+ minute eruption for GF!
11:08:18 <Dave from B™> That's a long time
11:08:35 <ynpvisitor25> where do you guys see that duration?
11:08:42 <Michael> I guess that area's not back to any kind of "normal"
11:08:42 <Dave from B™> Graham is trying to out do his Sept trip!
11:08:55 <Dave from B™> Look at Grotto post
11:09:02 <ynpvisitor25> just found it
11:09:51 <ynpvisitor25> maybe that is what all the steam has been about when we are wondering if it is F & M, it's more than just Grotto
11:09:56 <ynpvisitor999> I wonder how tall Grotto Fountain got. Surely it has to be 50 feet+, maybe even near or over 80 feet
11:10:31 <ynpvisitor25> not that tall 999, at least not when I have seen it
11:11:09 <ynpvisitor25> cam is in for a sliming this next OF
11:11:47 <Jake> I'm sure he took photos
11:11:57 <LindaG> Bulger?
11:12:07 <Michael> Coming soon to a FB group near you...
11:12:24 <Betty> hi Jake
11:12:26 <Jake> post marathon GF tends to be taller but who knows what system changes happened with it dormant for so long
11:12:33 <Michael> I think you're right about Bulger going.
11:12:53 <LindaG> I'll enter
11:12:55 <ynpvisitor25> 80 ft Grotto Fountain would be very tall
11:13:37 <ynpvisitor25> Dave from B™, did Billings finally get some snow?
11:13:40 <ynpvisitor999> exceptional, but not impossible. Nor for its duration
11:14:38 <Dave from B™> 5-6":(
11:14:56 <ynpvisitor25> wow, a real snowstorm
11:14:58 <Betty> `sigh`just watched a Sawmill video from 2016
11:15:14 <Jake> hi Betty
11:17:25 <ynpvisitor999> Grotto Fountain quit just after Grotto started (per Graham between 1302 and 1305)
11:23:46 <Eric> Graham's Grotto fountain is up on FB
11:25:44 <ynpvisitor25> good wind shift for OF
11:26:40 <ynpvisitor25> poof
11:29:09 <ynpvisitor999> Rule 1: Never talk about wind shifts if it concerns OF
11:29:31 <ynpvisitor25> it's better than it might have been 999
11:29:41 <BSK> Oh, MAN! Just like announcers jinxing a kicker.
11:30:04 <BSK> Like saying "just don't roll a 7" at the wrong time at a craps table.
11:30:40 <ynpvisitor999> OF was at?
11:31:09 <ynpvisitor999> haven't been paying much attention to it this time round
11:32:05 <LindaG> Wasnt looking
11:33:13 <Dave from B™> BSK, talking about 7 on craps today is a big no-no
11:33:18 <Dave from B™> table*
11:33:35 <BSK> yup
11:33:42 <Dave from B™> Almost like Aces & Eights at the poker table in the old west
11:35:36 <Dave from B™> Craps table can be a lot fun
11:36:54 <BSK> I thought we were going to need protective custody escort last time. Husband was "tipsy" and said "just don't roll a 7" OUT LOUD! It was a lot of fun before that. And was fun again the next day with a different crowd & dealers and a husband with the sense God gave little green apples.
11:37:22 <Dave from B™> hahahaha
11:37:35 <Michael> Daisy ie
11:39:28 <BSK> I will remind him of that before our next visit (Bob Seger concert March 2).
11:41:14 <Michael> How does it compare to talking about "false locks" at an F&M crowd? I know that's not a good way to make friends either.
11:41:54 <BSK> Geyser gazers are more forgiving that gamblers.
11:42:25 <Dave from B™> Yep; when money is on the line, things can go south in a hurry
11:43:06 <BSK> but they do have similar traits - additions based on escalation of commitment - "just one more $20 - it has to be due" "just one more hour - it has to be due"
11:43:48 <Dave from B™> BSK, I never looked at it that way. haha
11:45:02 <Dave from B™> I guess that means I don't have a gambling problen but that I do have a gazing problem:)
11:45:25 <Dave from B™> I never throw good money after bad
11:49:09 <Michael> Gazing has led me to make bad decisions with time. And sleep. The money is already spent by the time I get there.
11:49:09 <Casey> There's bad money?
11:51:01 <BSK> Yup. Any money lost, whether it be on gaming, poor investments, etc. is "bad money." Spending more to "get it back" is escalation of commitment and the foundation of behavioral addictions.
11:51:52 <Dave from B™> Yep...well said Katie. I love to gamble but it is for entertainment purposes only
11:52:10 <BSK> The more that is invested in that clunker car, the harder it is to just junk it. It doesn't have to be gambling.
11:52:49 <Dave from B™> Then I am addicted to my 2001 Isuzu truck and I've only had it for 3 months:)
11:52:58 <BSK> I enjoy it for entertainment, too. But I recite the mantra "escalation of commitment" when I might be tempted to go over the limit that I set.
11:53:59 <Michael> Does it still run most of the time, Dave?
11:54:04 <BSK> On the last trip, I blew my gambling money by the second day. But I didn't escalate. I played Pokemon instead. And on Sunday, I watched football. ha ha!
11:54:52 <Dave from B™> I bought it for a great price and I've spent about $5,000 to get it road worthy. It looks like it's finally working
11:55:09 <Jake> escalation of commitment sounds like a variation on the sunk cost fallacy
11:55:10 <Dave from B™> I set a daily limit when in LV
11:55:43 <Dave from B™> And, it's usually less than the cost of dinner:)
11:56:13 <Jake> it's easier to measure in financial situations. more complicated with waiting for geysers because people value seeing an eruption differently
11:57:29 <Dave from B™> But, we've all seen the stare from a non gazer, who can't believe we've sat in one place for so long
11:57:55 <BSK> I have always set a trip limit and try to spread it out over a trip, but last time I spent Saturday's money on Friday and Sunday's money on Saturday, and was out of play money all day Sunday. My gambling allowance next time will be even smaller, so... (but trip will be shorter, too)
11:59:09 <BSK> Yes, waiting on geysers or wildlife is different - and more rewarding, as far as I'm concerned. I get to hold the memories/photos forever.
11:59:46 <Dave from B™> I like the poker tournament format. Once a month I spend 25 (which include a lasagna dinner) and I can play for over 4 hours
12:00:09 <Dave from B™> Cheaper than a movie
12:01:03 <BSK> Yup (although, I will admit that since AMC bought what had been the Carmike theater in Missoula and build the dine-in theater, ticket prices are actually less - it's just about reasonable now - almost)
12:01:32 <Dave from B™> Nice...I've always wanted to go to a dine in theatre
12:02:08 <Michael> That sounds nice. Both the poker tournament (except I'm terrible at poker) and the dine-in theater.
12:02:29 <BSK> The food isn't stellar, but it's acceptable. But what I REALLY like about that theater is the comfort of the seats. THAT is a HUGE improvement (recliners, adjustable headrests)
12:02:45 <Dave from B™> Katie, where is that in Missoula?
12:03:39 <BSK> It's at the mall. It was supposed to also server beer & wine, but that hasn't happened, yet. You know what else I like about AMC? You can bring in a water bottle. I do.
12:04:11 <BSK> BTW, did you replace my keyboard with one of yours? I seem to be having a lot of issues...
12:05:35 <Dave from B™> You know what Kevin says in this case?
12:05:46 <BSK> Hmmm???
12:06:03 <Dave from B™> "It's the loose nut behind the keyboard":)
12:07:23 <BSK> PEBKAC
12:08:32 <Dave from B™> :D I had to look that one up :D
12:11:41 <Betty> lol
12:12:07 <Betty> Pohutu
12:13:07 <BSK> Is there a cam on Pohutu?
12:13:25 <Betty> don´t know
12:13:29 <Dave from B™> No, HK is in NZ
12:14:01 <ynpvisitor999> Unsure. Signs point to that there was, but it has since been either removed or simply not operational
12:15:02 <BSK> yeah, there are links, but they are dead or broken
12:22:14 <BSK> looks like there are some webcams on geysers in Iceland. But its dark.
12:23:18 <ynpvisitor999> the one on Geysir/Strokkur has been out of operation for a while now :(
12:25:13 <ynpvisitor999> it seems the Valley of Geysers on Kamchatka had a webcam as well, but that one is out of operation, too
12:27:24 <BSK> Watching YouTub vids of Stokkur, now. Some great slow-mo of the "bubble"
12:39:17 <STS - phone> Is there an issue with the quake monitor? Lots of blue
12:40:07 <BSK> I had Norris up, but I see what you mean on the Old Faithful one.
12:40:31 <STS - phone> Yeah the OF one I should mention haha
12:40:34 <ynpvisitor999> maybe some kind of background humm
12:40:45 <Betty> must be Graham jumping
12:40:50 <ynpvisitor999> haha
12:41:36 <STS - phone> Who knows.
12:42:01 <BSK> Hmmm... several look odd, starting around the same time. Check out Madison River and Maple Creek and Mammoth Vault
12:42:11 <STS - phone> One long, continuous quake haha
12:42:45 <BSK> Little Thumb Creek, too...
12:43:11 <ynpvisitor999> then it could be an error on the UofU side
12:43:25 <BSK> And Hebgen Lake was crazy earlier...
12:44:04 <ynpvisitor999> it almost seems like the Hebgen Lake seismo is a lot more sensitive to smaller quakes than the rest
12:44:05 <STS - phone> I’m not too familiar with quake monitors
12:44:09 <Dave from B™> Nothing on the quake map so most likely an error
12:46:49 <Eric> Dave...you are setup!
12:47:23 <Dave from B™> Thanks Eric
12:47:45 <Dave from B™> When is my date with Miss Universe?
12:48:25 <Eric> tomorrow
12:49:18 <Eric> You will have to fly to the Philippines tonight though...
12:50:06 <Dave from B™> haha
12:51:52 <Betty> NG?
12:52:24 <Betty> go away of steam
12:52:36 <Betty> what was that?
12:53:10 <ynpvisitor999> seemed to be a bit too far to the right for NG
12:53:28 <Betty> yes, thought that too
12:53:59 <Betty> Ear Spring? Grove?
12:55:20 <Dave from B™> Graham looks to be down basin
12:55:34 <ynpvisitor28> Where’s graham when you need him? Lol
12:55:43 <Dave from B™> NZ geysers are in the future!:)
12:55:43 <Betty> haha
12:56:15 <ynpvisitor999> maybe it was Kitten
12:56:18 <Dave from B™> He's at Grand
12:56:24 <Eric> I assume he is at grand :-D
12:56:28 <Eric> What Dave said....
12:56:58 <Dave from B™> There we go again:)
12:57:01 <STS - phone> He input turban a bit ago
12:57:28 <Dave from B™> Time for a Grand prediction...1512
12:58:47 <STS - phone> I’m wondering if “alternative media” will mention the quake monitors today...
13:04:08 <Casey> Yikes, ynpvisitor28. I just switched my seismo to show OF. Sound the alarms!
13:04:53 <STS - phone> Dave mentioned no quakes - probably just a malfunction somewhere
13:06:15 <Casey> Yeah. It looked like that one day several weeks ago. I think the speculation that day was some kind of groomers dealing with the snow.
13:06:39 <Casey> I think malfunction sounds right
13:07:31 <Betty> OF
13:07:33 <STS - phone> OF?
13:09:12 <Betty> Dome
13:10:40 <Betty> Grand
13:10:57 <STS - phone> Grand
13:11:08 <STS - phone> Grand
13:12:09 <Dave from B™> 63 seconds off...dang
13:12:22 <Dave from B™> oops...80
13:13:47 <Joe> That what was that at 1450 was NG I saw the start on my recording the wind blew the "puff" side ways quickly
13:14:05 <LindaG> Lake
13:14:17 <LindaG> Looks nice
13:15:23 <Betty> great. Thanks Joe :-)
13:15:40 <LindaG> Bee is playing hard too get today
13:16:41 <ynpvisitor48> Any other ideas what the quake monitor at OF is showing?
13:17:28 <LindaG> On my! Just looked at it
13:19:31 <ynpvisitor48> I don’t know if it’s ever done that!
13:19:47 <ynpvisitor48> Maybe someone has seen a similar signature before.
13:20:24 <Dave from B™> That's too loud for grooming equipment
13:20:47 <Joe> I wonder If bee erupted last night you could not see anything until about 0515 this am
13:22:43 <LindaG> Hmmm by the looks of it bee may not go in daylight
13:27:02 <LindaG> There is steam on static but getting hard to see
13:27:13 <ynpvisitor48> Dave, what quake map do you use?
13:31:59 <Dave from B™> just click on the quake map button on this page just to the right of YNP seismic monitors
13:34:42 <Dave from B™> There was a 5.8 in N Cali this morning
13:36:21 <LindaG> Maybe Graham is out there stomping up and down by the seismo
13:36:45 <Betty> my words, Linda
13:37:31 <LindaG> Chili had a 6.7 yesterday
13:37:52 <Joe> Castle soon if it majored last night
13:41:53 <LindaG> Betty, hehe didnt see ur comment
13:42:02 <ynpvisitor48> LOL
13:42:11 <Betty> :-D
13:42:12 <ynpvisitor999> I guess great minds think alike
13:42:45 <LindaG> 😃 exactly
13:43:40 <Eric> Graham mentioned anything about oblong?
13:44:27 <Dave from B™> Eric, not that I know of
13:44:27 <ynpvisitor999> not today I think
13:45:25 <Eric> I am curious if it looks active with some of the activity we have seen that direction.
13:45:43 <Eric> Or would you even be able to tell
13:45:45 <Joe> He posted an Oblong yesterday I was wondering if he would post another based on what we see now
13:46:17 <Eric> ohh, didn't see he pposted an oblong..thanks joe
13:46:25 <Dave from B™> Eric, I was thinking the same thing earlier today. We have been noticing UFC's in that area.
13:46:48 <Eric> So I guess oblong is back to being active!
13:46:49 <Dave from B™> Unidentified Flying Clouds
13:47:00 <Joe> :)
13:47:07 <Eric> I will be curious of it's periodicity
13:47:08 <LindaG> I read UFO's lol
13:47:08 <CraigC> LOL
13:47:17 <Eric> I like it :-D
13:47:31 <Dave from B™> I would hope to see another post or 2 of Oblong from Graham
13:49:00 <Betty> he´s on the hill now
13:49:40 <Dave from B™> I wish we had more gazers who could afford to go this time of year
13:50:05 <Eric> :thumbsup:
13:50:20 <CraigC> *who could handle the cold this time of year
13:50:29 <Joe> afford and/or tough enough :)
13:50:33 <Eric> Graham even had an extra bed it looks like :-
13:50:35 <Eric> :-D
13:51:04 <LindaG> Graham gave me a list of what he wears out there, I wouldn't be able to move. Lol
13:56:24 <Dave from B™> I wonder if he wants a roommate next year?
13:56:29 <Kevin L™🌵> It is Knight time. bbl
13:56:48 <LindaG> Good luck
13:57:09 <Betty> night Kevin
13:57:37 <Dave from B™> sweet dreams, Kevin
13:57:57 <Eric> Night
14:01:30 <Joe> I never thought about it being tomorrow in New Zealand but if you look at GT on the computer it is putting the post as tomorrow
14:02:25 <ynpvisitor48> I didn’t know you could even put geysers outside the US on GT
14:03:47 <ynpvisitor999> Daisy
14:03:53 <Joe> Daisy
14:06:30 <Dave from B™> Joe, I think HK is in a time warp
14:07:43 <Dave from B™> He does drive a DeLorean, correct?
14:08:48 <Eric> Yep...they are in the future :-P
14:09:19 <Eric> Was always weird calling friends the day before their birthday.
14:09:28 <Eric> But it is the correct day for themm
14:10:56 <ynpvisitor48> Looks like the OF signature is calming down
14:11:57 <Betty> bee burp
14:12:44 <Betty> enjoy the bug, night all
14:13:36 <ynpvisitor999> night Betty
14:13:55 <ynpvisitor48> Night Betty
14:14:34 <Eric> Night Betty
14:15:21 <Eric> oblong area steam
14:15:23 <BSK> I've been away for a while. Do we know why the seismos have been funky?
14:15:33 <Dave from B™> Ask Betty
14:15:43 <Dave from B™> or Linda
14:15:49 <Eric> or Dave
14:16:16 <Dave from B™> ok, then. Katie, we think it's a malfunction
14:16:36 <Eric> :-D
14:16:36 <Dave from B™> Not Graham jumping up and down which seems to be the most popular choice in the room
14:17:03 <LindaG> Hehe
14:18:09 <Dave from B™> I just sold to a restaurant that you have to take a ski lift to get
14:18:28 <LindaG> Still warmer in Yellowstone than it is here in New Jersey. Brrrr
14:19:42 <CraigC> Needles restaurant at Snow Basin is at the top of the mountain
14:25:39 <Dave from B™> This place is at 8800 feet in Big Sky
14:26:14 <Eric> Nice....that would be a cool dining experience :-D
14:26:39 <Eric> I know Mt. Bachelor in Oregon has mid mountain dining as well
14:27:41 <CraigC> Dave, you going to personally deliver?
14:28:38 <Dave from B™> haha, Craig. That would be nice but no. I am making our delivery to Chico tomorrow however
14:33:52 <ynpvisitor21> I can see Dave on a ski lift with a couple cases of fish.
14:35:34 <Dave from B™> I haven't skied for 7-10 years but I wouldn't be afraid to put a pair on
14:38:08 <ynpvisitor25> Is the Big Sky something that can turn into an account. Those folks have unlimited funds...
14:38:29 <ynpvisitor25> ? meant after account
14:39:50 <ynpvisitor25> Grand is doing all G1Q's for Graham thus far
14:45:16 <Dave from B™> 25, we are currently selling to about 10 accounts in the Big Sky area
14:46:38 <ynpvisitor48> More people waiting for OF than usual for this late in the afternoon
14:46:39 <Dave from B™> We have a new relationship we a guy who started his own delivery business. He goes to Big Sky and red Lodge for us. He also goes to West and Jackson; which will be hoping to get going for us before summer.
14:48:25 <ynpvisitor48> Is anyone else’s live stream being jumpy?
14:48:36 <CraigC> mine is
14:49:05 <ynpvisitor21> Mine too
14:49:09 <ynpvisitor48> Probably Graham’s fault :D
14:49:31 <ynpvisitor999> mine is as well, every so often it's so messed up I can't even see the basin itself properly
14:50:14 <ynpvisitor48> Well there’s OF
14:50:31 <Eric> Ok...just finished plowing through all of graham's awesome photos on FB! Some very cool images of NG, Oblong, mouth and the new pit toilet at riverside.
14:50:49 <Eric> OF sliming camera
14:51:39 <ynpvisitor48> Really cool static
14:51:49 <ynpvisitor48> With the sun tinting OF
14:51:54 <Eric> wow...yes it is 48!
14:52:16 <Eric> For anyone that missed it: https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/01212019/803.jpg
14:52:37 <Dave from B™> That's a nice shot. Thanks, Eric
14:53:10 <ynpvisitor48> Yes, thank you
14:53:24 <Eric> The handy dandy history scroll comes into action :-D
14:54:42 <Dave from B™> Someday, I'll figure out why I can't do that
14:56:07 <Eric> OF webcam is troubled :-D
14:56:11 <Eric> My webcam says
14:56:18 <Eric> my dashboard says
14:57:02 <Eric> webcam down
14:57:07 <Eric> but I still see video
14:57:20 <Eric> hmmmm
14:57:34 <CraigC> it's a Poltergeist
14:57:43 <Eric> Well, there is a buffer
14:59:08 <ynpvisitor25> I have streaming.
14:59:21 <Eric> Yes, streaming is kind of up
14:59:30 <ynpvisitor25> Thanks for the info about your accounts Dave.
14:59:46 <ynpvisitor25> I bet the Big Sky folks are loving they can get good fish
15:00:25 <ynpvisitor999> I wonder - is the Kereru shown on the GT map the same as HK's Kireru?
15:01:13 <Eric> hard to say....english to maori can sometimes be different.
15:01:19 <Dave from B™> No problem, 25. Have a great evening everyone. I will be back on Thursday.
15:01:32 <ynpvisitor25> bye Dave
15:01:48 <LindaG> Very dissappointed in bee today.
15:01:52 <LindaG> Bye dave
15:02:04 <Dave from B™> Don't BEE sad, Linda:)
15:02:23 <LindaG> 🌝
15:03:49 <ynpvisitor48> The sunset is gorgeous!!
15:04:20 <LindaG> A nice sunset will cheer me up.
15:07:23 <Eric> Wish camera had not been slimed recently :-(
15:07:38 <Eric> I bet graham is disappointed as well
15:09:29 <ynpvisitor999> well... The Kereru-Kireru question became a lot more complicated: Now it's Kiriru...
15:19:51 <ynpvisitor999> pretty colors
15:20:29 <BSK> Very. And the OOF makes it kinda dreamy
15:21:40 <LindaG> Stunning
15:27:20 <LindaG> Welp gotta make dinner. Enjoy!
15:32:01 <ynpvisitor999> Castle ie
15:59:00 <ynpvisitor7> Back in my cabin. Nice day but hard walking in the snow
15:59:21 <ynpvisitor999> You did have a very nice surprise :D
15:59:38 <ynpvisitor49> good day?
16:01:14 <ynpvisitor7> I didn't expect Grotto Ftn and it went on and on. Grotto was reluctant to start
16:01:44 <Joe> Castle is major
16:02:25 <ynpvisitor7> Thanks Joe, I will update it
16:02:58 <ynpvisitor999> did you get a height estimate of Grotto Fountain?
16:03:05 <ynpvisitor7> Oohs NZ geysers too
16:03:32 <ynpvisitor7> The top was above the tree line from the bike path. I do t do heights
16:04:15 <Joe> It was nice following you today, did you see any more of Oblong?
16:05:06 <Eric> Yes, thanks Graham for all your photo, video posts! They were awesome.
16:07:06 <ynpvisitor7> I didn't see Oblong or an empty crater
16:07:22 <Joe> thanks
16:07:39 <ynpvisitor7> I was trying for the Grand start but was still pressing buttons
16:08:20 <ynpvisitor7> Glad I saw NG too. Was odd tonight it was bubbling before the 5min overflow and then nothing afterwards. Didn't hear up.
16:09:03 <ynpvisitor7> And grand waited after NG which was nice
16:10:21 <ynpvisitor7> Was hoping Giant would do some thing with Grotto but didn't seem to although I was watching GF and SGF most of the time
16:12:36 <Eric> There was much cheering about GF today
16:20:59 <ynpvisitor36> Did OF go or is that just a bunch of steam?
16:26:55 <ynpvisitor7> I bet you all thought I meant to enter Grotto and messed it up with my gloves.
16:29:51 <STS - phone> Graham, we were discussing the OF seismograph earlier and how strange it looked. Was there any activity around Geyser Hill this afternoon.
16:29:54 <STS - phone> ?*
16:30:21 <STS - phone> Couple of brave souls at OF
16:41:31 <STS - phone> Looks like we all missed OF? Haha
16:42:07 <ynpvisitor7> Not that I noticed on Geyser Hill. Dome appears to be having frequent series per GT
16:43:45 <STS - phone> Hmm. We concluded it was probably a malfunction on the seismo’s part
16:44:22 <STS - phone> Or maybe just some “noise”
16:47:14 <ynpvisitor999> oh, Graham, I did think you tapped the wrong geyser when 10 minutes passed without a subsequent Grotto. Didn't think that anymore once you logged SGF
16:48:45 <ynpvisitor19> :p Bad Knight.
16:49:39 <STS - phone> Unless someone saw OF go off, I’m gonna enter a (?) eruption for OF. I can delete it, or someone can input a more accurate entry later.
16:50:05 <STS - phone> I did see some heavy steaming around 18:20
16:55:28 <ynpvisitor7> Time for dinner, bye
16:55:34 <ynpvisitor999> bye Graham
16:55:39 <ynpvisitor999> enjoy your meal
17:53:58 <LindaG> OF ie
17:56:15 <LindaG> Nice light tonight
18:00:52 <ynpvisitor70> BH would look good still.
18:01:54 <LindaG> For sure, was thinking g the same thing
18:12:28 <ynpvisitor67> what is going on with the quake map?
18:12:54 <ynpvisitor67> haven't seen it look like that before
18:15:04 <ynpvisitor83> Graham was jumping up and down by it.
18:15:05 <LindaG> They think maybe malfunction, not sure
18:15:59 <ynpvisitor67> thanks for the information
18:17:01 <ynpvisitor67> I see the skies are fairly clear, so maybe it will clear up in Worland and maybe the wind will stop
18:17:44 <ynpvisitor67> we only got 2 inches of snow,but it has been howling here
18:18:23 <LindaG> Hopefully it does. I'm out east and the wind has been howling for 2 days, down to 11 degrees
18:19:39 <ynpvisitor67> have a good evening
18:19:49 <LindaG> U too
18:43:06 <ynpvisitor41> I love the moon shadows that Fluffy's steam casts
18:52:36 <ynpvisitor105> yay Grand
18:54:19 <ynpvisitor105> seems to be a lot of names in the room, but nobody home
18:54:46 <Kevin L™🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
18:55:54 <ynpvisitor105> Grand was ie went I joined chat
18:56:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Streaming is stressed tonight
18:56:57 <ynpvisitor98> Graham broke the cam and BH.
18:57:21 <ynpvisitor105> is that why it keeps going to pixels
18:57:58 <ynpvisitor105> I hope he builds a snowman while he is there
18:58:05 <ynpvisitor98> The Caps are probably running the cam tonight.
18:58:38 <Kevin L™🌵> The pixels are due to low light. Stuttering could be centurylink and/or low light.
18:58:52 <ynpvisitor105> I didn't know anyone was "running the cam"
18:59:18 <ynpvisitor105> I thought that was why the cam wasn't zooming anymore
18:59:26 <Kevin L™🌵> It isn't
19:00:13 <ynpvisitor98> What do you expect from a team that scores a goal on them selves.
19:00:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Law Enforcement can take over the cam at anytime.
19:01:01 <Kevin L™🌵> We had a bad Knight too.
19:01:45 <ynpvisitor98> So the Caps and the Knights are double teaming the cam?
19:02:46 <Kevin L™🌵> If the Knight were there the cam would be shaking from the puck hitting the tree.
19:03:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Would have won if they were playing horseshoes.
19:03:20 <ynpvisitor98> They are good enough to hit a tree?
19:03:45 <Kevin L™🌵> They can hit the poles and crossbar, just not the net.
19:04:30 <ynpvisitor98> But did one of them toss the puck in their net?
19:04:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Not this game, but they did a few games ago.
19:05:12 <ynpvisitor98> Must share a defensive coach?
19:06:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Defense?
19:07:08 <ynpvisitor98> Those are the players that block the view of the goalie.
19:07:26 <Kevin L™🌵> We don't have those
19:08:25 <ynpvisitor98> Should make it easier for the goalie to see the puck coming, so he can duck.
19:09:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Had one time where the Wild goalie was gone and it was only a 2 foot shot in front of the net. Missed it.
19:11:21 <ynpvisitor98> Must be the force field the mob had installed on the goals to control the scores.
19:11:43 <ynpvisitor98> Russians must have hacked the internet controls.
19:12:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds right to me. Lot of Russian spies in the NHL.
19:12:45 <ynpvisitor98> Or they messed up the book and had to have them loose.
19:20:28 <ynpvisitor98> Well thanks to Graham, no bee for me.
20:39:14 <ynpvisitor38> lots of steam at bee
20:39:24 <ynpvisitor38> can't tell what is making it though
20:40:35 <Eric> I was noticing that as well
20:50:33 <ynpvisitor38> last OF not posted nor Grand
20:51:00 <ynpvisitor38> people must leave their computers logged in for the night
20:51:37 <ynpvisitor38> I am off to bed
20:51:49 <ynpvisitor38> hope bee goes for you
20:52:49 <ynpvisitor38> Old Faithful should be coming up in next half hour
20:52:51 <ynpvisitor38> night
20:58:48 <Eric> OF
21:19:59 <Eric> Basin is pretty fogged in now...I am heading out. Night All
