04:12:35 <CraigC> I wish 29!
04:13:24 <Betty> my retirement starts with 67. Still 19 years to go for me :drizzle:
04:14:29 <Kat> Believe it or not Betty - it will go fast!
04:14:38 <Betty> hopefully
04:15:49 <Kat> I used to think it would never happen and here I am now retired since 8/1/2018 did that happen??:)
04:16:04 <Betty> funny thing is, I still remember my first day as apprentis...I thought about how long the next 3 years would take until I finish...LOL
04:16:52 <Kat> Time flies when you're having fun and growing older!!
04:16:57 <Betty> apprentice of course
04:17:06 <Betty> so true
04:17:11 <Kat> :)
04:20:40 <Kat> CC, any news as to when we can start back up?
04:21:04 <Joe> CC says start
04:21:45 <ynpvisitorCC> I am starting this morning. It is 24hours since the opening of the gov.
04:21:59 <Kat> Really? Thought we would get an e-mail Joe.
04:23:31 <Joe> I thought that also...But CC is the boss :)
04:24:20 <Kat> OK, I need some time covered this week as I have 4 days that I will be at Mayo Clinic...I'll send an e-mail out!
04:24:40 <Joe> 05:33:14 ‹ynpvisitorCC› All cam shifts can resume to regular schedule
04:24:52 <ynpvisitorCC> I believe so
04:25:24 <Kat> WooHoo - I'm so happy!
04:25:28 <Betty> Daisy ie?
04:26:43 <Betty> hmmm, don´t see it anymore
04:26:59 <Kat> Can't see it either.
04:36:21 <Joe> Graham is most likely enjoying his bacon and eggs right now, then making a dash for Grand
04:36:53 <Kat> :)
04:38:35 <Joe> First camera swing comming up :)
04:38:49 <Betty> :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

04:59:09 <Joe> Hi Kent
04:59:27 <Kent> I have not received anything from Dave that the cam is back in operation. Did I miss something?
04:59:32 <Kent> Hi Joe
04:59:57 <ynpvisitorCC> I was told 24 hours after opening
05:00:14 <Graham> You didnt do your job Jor
05:00:21 <Kent> Thanks CC.
05:00:38 <Joe> No I failed badly:(
05:00:41 <ynpvisitorCC> VEC opens this morning...admin will be back tomorrow
05:00:45 <Kat> Kent CC said it has been 24 hours so go for it. Dave is probably not in the office until tomorrow.
05:01:07 <Betty> you had one slice of bacon too much, Graham
05:01:26 <Betty> but we hold BH for you
05:01:46 <Joe> Now i will add insult to was a 2b
05:02:06 <Betty> bah

05:08:54 <Graham> Head out to the hill....will wave in 5min

05:17:11 <Joe> I double checked Daisy i think not yet
05:19:27 <Betty> did you check at 0625, when I thought it was ie, too?
05:20:04 <Joe> I could not tell for sure, sorry
05:20:13 <Betty> ok, thx
05:22:11 <Betty> would be great if Graham could get Giant today :-)
05:22:47 <Joe> Yes, Giant is overdue
05:23:44 <Betty> and then Morning on his way out to Mammoth :-D
05:24:27 <Betty> hope Morning is still active
05:36:24 <Micah> Ah forget it.
05:36:44 <Betty> hi Micah
05:36:54 <Micah> Morning Betty
05:37:30 <Betty> how ja doin?
05:37:46 <Micah> Oh ya know. Just warming up the model.
05:37:50 <Micah> Preparing for a day of SCIENCE
05:37:58 <Betty> cool
05:38:17 <CraigC> Micah, are you going to stream it live on your profile feed?
05:38:30 <Betty> you volunteering in the park this year?
05:38:35 <Micah> I plan to stream it sometime this afternoon. And it will be on the GOSA page.
05:38:54 <Micah> More than that Betty. Working another season but now as a tour guide!
05:39:07 <Joe> I thought you were telling us that you were becoming a famous male model :)
05:39:17 <Micah> Would be nice to volunteer with interp and geology again but my schedule might not allow it.
05:39:23 <Micah> Joe, but why male models?
05:39:40 <Betty> fashion model
05:40:33 <Micah> Betty I was joining him with his movie reference.
05:40:44 <Micah> Maybe we should name the model "Blue Steel"
05:41:20 <Joe> ok fashion model, i forgot to tread lightly on person descriptions :)
05:42:27 <Betty> great you are a tour guide this year :-)
05:43:18 <Betty> what kind of model is it, Micah?
05:43:32 <CraigC> you guiding on foot, or driving a coach?
05:44:41 <Micah> Betty: Geyser Model.
05:44:44 <Micah> Craig: Driving a bus.
05:45:07 <KittyM*> Hi Micah, is it for a specific tour company?
05:45:19 <Micah> Xanterra.
05:45:39 <CraigC> KittyM*, you finally got in GG
05:46:16 <KittyM*> I did, yay!! :)
05:46:37 <KittyM*> Thanks to Micah
05:49:31 <CraigC> KittyM*, you can repay him by asking lots of questions in GG about how to tell how tall SB is from the seismo chart.
05:49:49 <KittyM*> LOL!! sounds like fun :D
05:50:07 <Micah> Short answer. We can't tell.
05:50:13 <CraigC> :)
05:50:17 <KittyM*> ha ha
05:53:01 <Micah> Alright. I'll be on and off as I run back and forth from the deck.
05:53:20 <CraigC> be safe, dude
05:54:05 <Micah> It's not like we're periodically looking down a pipe filled with boiling water that could rocket out at any time or anything....
05:57:02 <Betty> Riverside ie?
05:57:21 <Betty> no
05:57:27 <Betty> bad clouds
06:11:25 <CraigC> BHI?
06:12:14 <LindaG> It is steaming but not sure about bhi
06:12:35 <CraigC> it looked like a burst
06:12:48 <ynpvisitorCC> Bubblers
06:13:23 <LindaG> Thats a good sign
06:15:23 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
06:25:24 <Joe> Sprinkler
06:26:32 <Betty> Daisy?
06:26:50 <Betty> no
06:28:45 <Joe> now
06:29:04 <Betty> yay
06:30:01 <LindaG> Zoom 😊
06:30:18 <Joe> Daisy has been hiding foe 14 hours
06:30:27 <Joe> For*
06:31:19 <KittyM*> I love this view!
06:31:33 <Joe> Bison below
06:31:55 <Betty> sprinkler
06:35:30 <CraigC> c'mon Giant, give Graham a show
06:40:26 <Joe> Ah, NPS predictions are back
06:46:12 <Joe> CASTLE
06:46:32 <CraigC> :castle:
06:46:43 <Eric> zoooooom!
06:46:48 <Eric> Good Morning!
06:47:05 <Betty> morning Eric
06:47:34 <CraigC> hey Eric, how's it oging
06:47:37 <CraigC> going
06:47:40 <Joe> Hi Eric, the camops are earning their money now :)
06:48:06 <Eric> Going great now that we have camops back.
06:50:41 <CraigC> and a clean cam
06:51:00 <Joe> on that side:)
06:51:28 <Eric> I thought it looked a little sharper
06:52:17 <Joe> Did they clean it Craig? I missed that
06:52:48 <CraigC> Joe, no idea how it gets cleaned, but this view right now looks way sharper than what we have been seeing. No?
06:53:26 <Joe> they reach up with a 30" pole and wipe the dome
06:53:28 <Kat> It does look sharper. Glad to be back and up and running!
06:53:44 <Joe> 30"
06:53:48 <Joe> 30'
06:54:09 <Eric> ohh, that is just due to depth of field :-D When you zoom out, all that crap on the dome becomes so unfocused, you cannot see it
06:54:17 <Joe> fat finger shift key :)
06:54:18 <Eric> sorry, zoom in
06:55:21 <Eric> Now all those dots are back in focus
06:55:51 <CraigC> :(
06:56:39 <CraigC> Kinda like my DSLR, if I use F16 or more, dust bunnies start showing up
06:57:08 <Joe> Riverside due ~30 min
07:03:08 <Eric> Exactly Craig!
07:04:04 <Betty> castle majors
07:04:17 <CraigC> Eric, have you tried cleaning the sensors on cameras?
07:05:51 <Betty> Bulger majors too :-)
07:06:10 <Betty> time for Giant major :-D
07:30:25 <Betty> Dome ie on static
07:30:38 <Joe> nice
07:34:55 <Micah> Oooh extended fill.
07:34:59 <Micah> North Goggle is going nuts.
07:35:24 <Betty> webcam is down :-(
07:35:25 <Joe> Riverside
07:35:32 <Betty> up again
07:37:14 <Betty> Sponge
07:38:34 <Micah> These intermediates are something else.
07:38:43 <Micah> Aurum?
07:38:51 <Micah> Something just went poof briefely.
07:39:07 <Micah> and I thought pump was still wimpy,but I'm out of the loop.
07:40:59 <Joe> There was a nice puff from the left of Giantess at that time Micah
07:41:03 <Betty> doggies
07:41:53 <Joe> They are trying to start indy
07:44:31 <Betty> Dome
07:45:03 <Eric> A close up of NG intermediate would be excellent, please :-D
07:45:51 <Eric> dang OF wind/steam :-(
07:45:57 <Eric> Thanks though :-D
07:46:09 <ynpvisitorCC> to much steam from OF
07:46:10 <Eric> :-D :-P ;-) :-)
07:47:12 <Eric> and hi CC...welcome back :-D
07:47:27 <ynpvisitorCC> hi Eric
07:47:32 <Eric> anemone!
07:47:43 <Eric> Big I think
07:48:20 <Eric> Is that bison standing right on the BW?
07:48:30 <Betty> yep
07:48:39 <Eric> ohh, behind it now
07:49:04 <Eric> That is a bad spot for a herd when you are up on the hill!
07:49:21 <Betty> yep again
07:49:28 <Eric> :-D
07:50:44 <Eric> aurum!
07:50:45 <Eric> .
07:50:45 <Eric> .
07:50:57 <Micah> Model pcvc geyser intervals are stabilizing at ~15 minutes.
07:50:59 <Eric> I think...
07:51:07 <Eric> Nice!
07:51:18 <Betty> yes!!
07:51:19 <Joe> Looked good until of steam
07:51:35 <Eric> pretty sure that is aurum
07:52:02 <Betty> I´m lagged and saw it start after you posted :-)
07:52:03 <Eric> Nice cap of it on static too:
07:52:31 <Eric> Hope graham got it :-D
07:52:34 <Betty> yep to the 3rd :-D
07:53:34 <Betty> sounds good, Micah
07:53:47 <Graham> Eric i posted video and pic if ng intermediate
07:53:58 <Eric> You live streaming micah?
07:54:07 <Graham> Nice aurum
07:54:13 <Eric> Very cool graham!
07:54:19 <Betty> cool you got it
07:54:34 <ynpvisitor16> It knows.
07:54:39 <Eric> haha
07:54:43 <Eric> Morning Kevin
07:54:46 <Betty> bummer Kevin
07:59:11 <ynpvisitorCC> Have a good afternoon all
07:59:22 <Eric> Bye CC
07:59:24 <Joe> Bye CC
07:59:36 <Betty> bye and thanks, CC
07:59:46 <ynpvisitor81> Bye CC
07:59:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Bye CC
08:00:01 <ynpvisitor81> BYE CC
08:00:15 <Eric> Lion tryin?
08:01:22 <Eric> we are at a good point to ini here
08:01:37 <Eric> Lion BH dual probably... :-(
08:01:46 <Eric> OF
08:02:05 <CraigC> why did BH disappear from the predictions box?
08:02:18 <Eric> It expired
08:02:22 <Eric> 2h past window
08:02:27 <CraigC> ok, thanks
08:02:37 <Kevin L™🌵> It is a slacker.
08:02:43 <ynpvisitor999®> is it bad for me to not have noticed that the cam was zoomed in a few minutes ago?
08:02:48 <Eric> Because Jake sucks?
08:02:51 <Eric> :-P
08:03:02 <Eric> Sorry, that was too mean
08:03:07 <Eric> and I was joking
08:03:08 <Joe> Camops are on the job DG
08:03:33 <Eric> YNP volunteers to the rescue!
08:03:44 <ynpvisitor999®> didn't notice that NPS was doing predictions again either...
08:04:19 <Betty> DG, are you distracted by anything? ;-)
08:04:48 <ynpvisitor999®> I was trying to not discourage NG. Guess I'm now actively doing that :(
08:05:03 <ynpvisitor999®> as in, discouraging it...
08:05:16 <Betty> nooo
08:06:44 <Eric> Ugg, this swirling wind and steam from OF is annoying
08:07:41 <ynpvisitor999®> spots on the webcam's dome aren't helping either
08:08:42 <Eric> Hey Kevin, can you have your contact at YNP update the clock on the VEC static to the correct time?
08:08:55 <Eric> It should have an option on the camera to stay time synced
08:09:37 <Eric> I sure would make reviewing and figuring out times much easier :-D
08:10:44 <Micah> So....are we gonna talk about the fact that North Goggle seems to have become rather disconnected from Lion since the Geyser Hill Disturbance?
08:10:55 <Eric> No
08:11:08 <Kevin L™🌵> I will leth hime know once he gets back to work.
08:11:08 <Eric> What happens on the hill, stays on the hill Micah!
08:11:16 <Micah> I AM THE HILL
08:11:25 <Micah> (Well the southeast portion anyways)
08:11:27 <Eric> You are a tiny geyser on the hill my friend
08:11:46 <Eric> The hill is all of us...we are the hill!
08:12:00 <CraigC> a small cog on a big wheel, or hill?
08:12:08 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome ie
08:12:30 <Betty> yeah, fun to see the cabins
08:12:50 <Eric> I think NG is still connected to Lion....But it might have power from some other system now too
08:12:55 <Joe> IF the vec cam is still a Stsrdot NetCam XL it has the option to set the time accuratly
08:13:09 <Joe> Stardot*
08:13:12 <Micah> I don't know....I haven't seen a lot of instances of it starting after long series like we got so used to.
08:13:59 <Michael> I'm with you, Micah. Seems like North Goggle is working on a faster cycle than Lion recently.
08:14:51 <Eric> So are you saying you think NG is on it's own cycle now?
08:14:59 <Eric> totally disconnected from Lion?
08:15:37 <Eric> Can you run a chart on GT with two geyser data points?
08:16:03 <Michael> I haven't looked at enough data to say that. But I think it's had time to heat up and erupt twice during a single Lion quiet period betwen series.
08:16:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Personally I think NG got some energy from Lion, seen Lion's long series-series intervals as of recent (with not that much of eruptions per series)
08:16:58 <ynpvisitor999®> stream down for anyone else?
08:17:00 <Eric> webcam down?
08:17:04 <ynpvisitor999®> it's back
08:17:25 <Micah> I've been meaning to really look into Goggle Data
08:17:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Mine is troubled.
08:17:29 <Joe> Last nights 0113 NG intermediate 5 hours after last Lion says it is still connected somewhat
08:17:43 <Micah> I mean....not in the traditional sense.
08:17:50 <Micah> If Lion had 13 eruptions beforehand maybe.
08:18:03 <Micah> It's always been toted that long lion series = chance for NG.
08:18:10 <Eric> Oh for sure things have changed...but NG has been strange over the last 3 or 4 years
08:18:16 <Joe> Yep camdown
08:18:22 <Joe> now up
08:18:27 <Micah> And that appears to have gone out the window after the Disturbance killed lion for 3 days and Goggle went absolutely bonkers.
08:18:35 <Betty> mine is up
08:18:38 <Micah> How so Eric?
08:18:41 <ynpvisitor999®> I do recall being described that NG has a greater chance of going between a Lion series than during one
08:18:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Mine is happy now too.
08:18:56 <Micah> Sorta. Depends on who you talk to.
08:19:03 <Eric> Last year how many aurum series did we get?
08:19:15 <Eric> pre disturbance
08:19:24 <Michael> That was certainly true for minor eruptions in the 1990s.
08:19:30 <Kevin L™🌵> We were talking about mass transit the other day. How is this for mass transit?
08:19:36 <Micah> We got two North Goggle series prior to the Disturbance.
08:19:51 <Micah> One in May and one in August.
08:20:34 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, yikes
08:20:52 <Eric> One of those came after like 3 eruptions of Lion too, so not after a long series
08:20:53 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like a normal day in India
08:21:50 <Joe> ~25000 people die in India on those trains
08:21:59 <Eric> wow
08:22:11 <Eric> and they still have billions more people
08:23:03 <Eric> over 37000 people die in car accidents in the US and we have way less people
08:23:18 <Joe> I meant to say each year
08:23:19 <Eric> trains safer than cars...even when you ride on top!
08:23:32 <Eric> yep...each year for cars
08:23:47 <Eric> That is 2010 data probably more now
08:23:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Japan (and some other countries) has so-called 'pusher'. They literally force-push people into a train during rush hours
08:24:19 <ynpvisitor999®> NG dropped @ 1010
08:24:40 <Eric> Probably with lions push for an ini
08:24:52 <Eric> It's trying really hard now
08:27:40 <Michael> Oh well. We'll see if it at least heated up enough for some minor eruptions.
08:29:20 <Eric> Are those bison bothering you up there Graham?
08:31:17 <Kevin L™🌵> White X again
08:31:26 <CraigC> cam down
08:31:31 <Joe> cam froze
08:31:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave broke it.
08:31:58 <Joe> back
08:32:00 <Eric> webpage says cam is in trouble
08:33:13 <CraigC> back up
08:33:24 <CraigC> refreshed
08:33:45 <Joe> slow and choppy
08:35:29 <Joe> counting good frames now
08:38:09 <Eric> Is that like counting sheep Joe?
08:38:29 <Eric> or count chocula from sesame street?
08:38:45 <Eric> 1 frame....ha, ha, ha
08:39:03 <Joe> Yes, that is about it :)
08:39:42 <Eric>
08:41:40 <Joe> Yep, you got it exactly
08:42:28 <Betty> fun, Eric
08:42:47 <Eric> I guess count chocula was a totally different count...but still from my childhood :-D
08:43:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Count Chocula was a cereal along with Boo Berry
08:45:09 <Betty> In Germany it is Graf Zahl :-)
08:45:16 <Betty>
08:45:39 <CraigC> LOL
08:45:52 <CraigC> ADHD chatroom
08:46:01 <Betty> hehehe
08:46:12 <Betty> GHG5
08:46:59 <Eric> Love it betty! Glad germans were exposed to the cookie monster too :-D
08:47:50 <Betty> sesame street was the favourite of my early youth
08:47:56 <Eric> It feels great to be typing on a keyboard that actually types what my fingers hit!
08:48:18 <Betty> what did you change?
08:48:31 <Eric> I replaced my laptop keyboard much better!
08:48:34 <CraigC> I still use Sesame Street songs all the time for effect.....
08:48:47 <CraigC> One of these things is not like the other
08:48:55 <CraigC> oh woe is me, there's a bird on me
08:48:59 <Betty> Dome ie
08:49:01 <Eric> Nice
08:49:41 <Eric> I don't think kids watch much sesame street anymore :-( Too many youtube channels
08:50:01 <Betty> such a bummer
08:50:32 <Eric> ehh, it's just different...they have access to sooo much
08:50:49 <Betty> true
08:50:54 <CraigC> Spongebob.... but I can't blame them, it is hilarious
08:51:06 <Eric> But they do missed the shared experiences that our generation got.
08:51:12 <Betty> I love spongebob ;-)
08:52:54 <Kevin L™🌵> All ages love the roadrunner
08:53:15 <Joe> Beep Beep
08:53:16 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
08:55:25 <LindaG> Good morning qgain
08:55:34 <CraigC> hey Linda
08:56:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
08:57:01 <ynpvisitor112> No yellow bird for me. They are and were wierd.
08:57:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Does that include Tweety?
08:58:07 <LindaG> Im with Joe and Kevin on the beep beep, yellowbird is what my niece and nephew watched.
09:00:16 <Joe> Eric, I sent you a couple of emails
09:01:42 <Joe> I enjoy the count, and try not to be like Oscar :)
09:03:03 <Joe> I do not always succeed.
09:03:23 <Kevin L™🌵> I do get into cookies...
09:03:38 <Joe> yum yum
09:04:46 <Eric> thanks Joe....I replied :-D
09:05:03 <Eric> Anyone have trouble with PM or name change in the last day?
09:05:47 <Eric> Fingers crossed that is all history and the chat should be working "perfectly" :-D
09:06:02 <Joe> Tks eric
09:14:59 <Eric> I might build a scrollback for the live stream here. Just capture a frame every second and let you scroll backwards through the last few minutes of capture.
09:15:39 <Joe> DAISY
09:15:46 <Michael> zoomed in on Daisy.
09:15:59 <Eric> Very nice!
09:16:50 <ynpvisitor69> Thanks for giving the camera operator the opportuniy to enter athe time
09:17:49 <Eric> You can have multiple worries about duplicates
09:17:57 <Michael> Cam-op saw it way before I did.
09:18:35 <Joe> I took mine out
09:18:50 <CraigC> Eric, is there a way to change my name on GT?
09:20:42 <Betty> Dome ie
09:22:40 <Joe> Craig I changed mine by emailing Gt admin Ithink Jake Young or Will Bokel dont remember exactly who though
09:23:01 <CraigC> Joe, thanks
09:25:26 <CraigC> now there is no entry for Daisy?
09:26:32 <Eric> You can email me craig and I can update it.
09:26:43 <Joe> I took mine out so the cam op could input
09:27:16 <Eric> No harm in having multiple
09:29:15 <Joe> Some camops input times some do not
09:30:18 <CraigC> Eric, wowow, you changed me name QUICK!!!!
09:30:50 <Eric> I already pulled up your details when you asked :-D Was just waiting on your email to confirm it was really you ;-)
09:31:13 <Eric> Don't want someone impersonating you and having me change your name.
09:31:20 <Eric> hahaha :-P
09:31:33 <CraigC> appreciate it, now if I get anything wrong or questionable, people will hopefully know who I am to help me fix it
09:32:52 <Eric> :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
09:33:35 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, Eric, could you change my name as well, while you're at it?
09:35:10 <CraigC> my name was "Hayduke", does anyone here know that reference?
09:35:42 <Eric> I do now...looks cool :-D
09:36:26 <LindaG> I have to read that book
09:36:26 <CraigC> Have you heard of Doug Peacock, the guy it was based upon? He is a grizzly advocate
09:36:53 <LindaG> Just posted a short film about him
09:37:02 <LindaG> On facebook
09:37:02 <CraigC> Linda, yeah
09:37:15 <CraigC> not on Amazon yet, though
09:37:45 <LindaG> I just got desert solitaire to read then onto the monkey wrench gang
09:38:18 <CraigC> Linda, I found the spot where Abbey lived at Arches when he wrote Desert Solitaire
09:38:19 <Eric> Sounds like a cool hike!
09:38:53 <LindaG> That must have been cool craig
09:39:38 <CraigC> there are some little cement foundation blocks still there, and people occasionally leave some flowers at the site. I try to go there every year
09:40:08 <Eric> I have never lived in the desert....but looks awesome
09:40:10 <Eric> OF
09:40:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Graham just posted the BH bubbler that does the most steam is erupting.
09:40:31 <LindaG> They leave stones where Thoreau built his cabin, reminds me of that
09:41:33 <CraigC> I'm probably the only person that didn't like Thoreau... I tossed the book halfway through. LOL
09:41:47 <STS> Logged OF at 11:39
09:41:50 <CraigC> it was the opposite of Simplify

09:42:17 <Eric> Bingo Bango Bongo!
09:42:23 <LindaG> I've never been to arches, I'm sure it helps to experience what hes writing about.
09:42:23 <CraigC> Graham, is that you by BH?
09:42:27 <STS> Graham is on it!
09:42:48 <STS> Cam was pretty wobbly for a bit
09:42:50 <Kevin L™🌵> At least you get a BH send off Graham!
09:42:51 <Eric> I assume so, he just posted here BHI :-D
09:42:54 <LindaG> This one is for graham!
09:42:54 <Betty> nice he gets BH
09:43:11 <Eric> Good way to exit the basin!
09:43:32 <LindaG> Sun Is peaking through I think
09:43:45 <STS> I just noticed the NPS predictions too! Nice to see those agian.
09:43:46 <Eric> No txt yet
09:43:47 <STS> again*
09:44:12 <Casey> Woah! Just noticed. the camera is moving!
09:44:16 <CraigC> yep, he's waving at us
09:44:17 <Eric> haha
09:44:18 <LindaG> Grahams waving
09:44:25 <Eric> Hi Graham!
09:44:27 <STS> Hi Graham!
09:44:55 <STS> OF long
09:45:17 <Eric> Looks like you are in a perfect spot for viewing
09:45:18 <Joe> I'll bet that wind bites
09:45:41 <STS> We're supposed to get 60 mph gusts tonight here in South Dakota
09:45:54 <STS> Windchills near -50 on Tuesday night
09:45:59 <LindaG> Thx for txt whoever sent it
09:46:02 <ynpvisitor999®> doesn't sound pleasant
09:46:34 <STS> Weather stations are saying it hasn't been this cold since the 90s
09:47:43 <CraigC> Graham's inviting the Bison over
09:48:07 <STS> More gazers perhaps?
09:48:56 <LindaG> It is soooooo nice to see bee upclose!
09:49:05 <CraigC> Lion too?
09:49:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion has been trying to go for a while now, to no avail yet
09:50:25 <Eric> Look like random snow shoers
09:50:34 <Eric> Graham probably just grabbed them and said stop!
09:50:38 <Joe> 999, I now see the real you :)
09:50:45 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
09:51:07 <Eric> Craig and Jarno went real :-D
09:51:18 <CraigC> LOL
09:51:36 <Eric> IMHO, it's better that way
09:51:58 <STS> If Graham told me to stop to see a geyser, I definitely would
09:52:38 <Eric> Lion ini is really trying again
09:52:42 <Eric> BH
09:52:44 <Michael> If he told me to get out of the fallout zone, I'd do that too.
09:52:46 <ynpvisitor999®> :bee:
09:53:31 <Eric> I hope they don't get a wind shift :-P
09:53:36 <STS> Woo
09:53:48 <LindaG> Nice
09:53:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Strong wind
09:53:49 <ynpvisitor999®> quite the wind speed. Nice jetting, too
09:55:02 <Eric> Glad BH interval shortened up a little for graham
09:55:33 <LindaG> A lunch bee again
09:57:24 <CraigC> cool, that made me happy for him
10:01:18 <Joe> Graham can get another Grand before he has to leave
10:03:20 <LindaG> Go for it Graham. Lunchtime
10:19:05 <Larry in Denver> Eric, I was wondering if there was a way to make the scroll work for the chat history? I see grayed-out arrows but no bar. That would be helpful so you could keep the current chat and image on the screen while you catch up.
10:22:52 <Eric> So you want a shorter chat history window and just be able to scroll?
10:23:31 <Eric> I could probably make the chat history popup in a dialog so you could size/position it wherever you want
10:23:32 <Larry in Denver> Yes.
10:23:45 <Eric> Would that be more convenient?
10:24:35 <Eric> Anyone else have ideas/suggestions around chat history?
10:24:36 <Larry in Denver> Whichever is easier. Right now if I'm 13 inches down in chat history and hear a beep I have to scroll the whole page back up to see what I missed.
10:24:45 <Joe> Graham is in the Grand area to catch his last Grand this visit.
10:24:58 <Eric> Yep...that totally makes sense Larry
10:25:29 <Eric> I can probably shorten that chat history quickly here
10:25:35 <ynpvisitor999®> I think the chat history window would be better off if made scrollable, but don't make it too small
10:25:43 <Michael> I vote that Graham should see Giant erupt before he leaves.
10:26:21 <Joe> He has 1 hour 23 min
10:26:59 <Joe> oops 33
10:27:40 <Kevin L™🌵> I just hope he gets a 2b Grand
10:28:15 <ynpvisitor999®> on a 1920×1080 screen, I think a chat history height of about 450-500px works alright
10:28:18 <Joe> Yes, he just missed the 2b this am
10:28:41 <Eric> I just set it to 300px to test
10:28:55 <Eric> give that a try
10:28:58 <Eric> refresh page first
10:29:57 <Joe> Eric works very well
10:29:59 <Larry in Denver> Perfect! Thank you!!!
10:30:13 <Betty> I´m fine with it
10:30:24 <Eric> Awesome...thanks group.
10:30:29 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, 300px works great, too
10:31:02 <Kevin L™🌵> :thumbsup:
10:31:17 <Eric> Always looking to make this page better for everyone :-D
10:31:37 <Larry in Denver> Eric gets yet another gold star!
10:31:50 <Eric> Woot...I am up to 2 now :-P
10:31:57 <ynpvisitor999®> :star:++
10:32:07 <Eric> Unless you ask my wife...then I have negative gold stars
10:32:31 <Eric> Come on Lion...ini already!
10:32:39 <Eric> over 16h!
10:33:10 <Betty> Dome ie
10:33:12 <Joe> It would be nice if the stars were real gold ;)
10:33:17 <Eric> Yerp
10:34:21 <Eric> I think Lion is dormant!
10:34:33 <ynpvisitor999®> GO LIONESS
10:34:43 <Eric> :-F
10:34:45 <ynpvisitor999®> GO BIG CUB
10:35:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
10:35:19 <Joe> Grand
10:35:29 <Eric> woot
10:35:35 <Eric> With zooooom
10:35:36 <Joe> Yay!!graham
10:35:47 <Joe> Graham*
10:38:05 <KittyM> Eric, as a newbie here, I just wanted to say I am very impressed with this page!
10:38:25 <Eric> Thanks KittyM...glad you are here
10:38:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Eric took a piece of carbon and turned it into a diamond.
10:39:24 <Eric> was pretty rough when I first started here
10:39:24 <Larry in Denver> I missed the details on Micah's geyser. A few years ago the geyser model from the kids area at the OFVEC was removed and sold on a government auction site - for less than $100 as I recall.
10:39:29 <Betty> lol
10:39:34 <Betty> Kevin
10:39:41 <Eric> Thats a bummer Larry
10:40:15 <Larry in Denver> Where is Micah showing off his project?
10:41:31 <Eric> I couldn't find the live stream anywhere
10:42:06 <Betty> he said he will post it this afternoon
10:42:08 <Joe> ~8min
10:42:28 <Betty> I think he did not post it yet
10:42:54 <Larry in Denver> Do you know which site? YouTube or something else?
10:43:51 <Joe> pause
10:43:53 <Betty> he said GOSA page
10:44:24 <Betty> 07:38:35 ‹Micah› I plan to stream it sometime this afternoon. And it will be on the GOSA page.
10:44:34 <Eric> come on grand
10:44:38 <Eric> give us #2
10:44:55 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd
10:44:57 <Joe> 2nd
10:44:57 <Eric> boooom
10:45:11 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
10:45:13 <Betty> yay
10:45:15 <ynpvisitor999®> nice farewell from Grand :)
10:45:36 <Larry in Denver> Nice encore for Graham
10:45:56 <Joe> now a third?
10:46:27 <Joe> maybe not
10:46:28 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't know, we're at 11m+ already
10:47:03 <ynpvisitor105> Kind of looked like it as cam pulled back
10:47:14 <Joe> well Graham broke his 1b streak
10:47:24 <ynpvisitor105> Thankfully!!
10:48:11 <Joe> Have a nice trip home Graham
10:48:25 <ynpvisitor999®> G2Q | 10m40s
10:49:35 <Joe> nap time bbl
10:49:46 <ynpvisitor999®> sleep well, Joe
10:49:49 <LindaG> Enjoy
10:49:53 <Betty> enjoy
10:50:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Bye
10:50:11 <Eric> bye Joe...I have to get some work done too
10:50:13 <Eric> Dome ie
10:50:24 <Eric> Enjoy Lion
10:50:34 <Betty> bye Eric
10:50:49 <Michael> Housework time. Be back later, maybe.
10:50:54 <LindaG> Bye
10:53:43 <ynpvisitor999®> did the cam get a clean?
10:55:11 <LindaG> I dont think so, we are zoomed in a little cant see spots as much
11:12:21 <LindaG> What is that in back right that is steaming alot?
11:13:19 <ynpvisitor999®> that's the Pump-GHG-17-Doublet area if I recall correctly
11:13:47 <LindaG> Everyone is waving
11:14:00 <ynpvisitor999®> based on the occurrance of that thick plume, we're probably seeing Pump steaming
11:14:20 <LindaG> I dont know if I've ever seen it do that, thx
11:17:28 <Betty> Solitary ie :-D
11:17:56 <LindaG> I like that one
11:18:59 <ynpvisitor25> I think VEC has more important things to tend to today than cleaning the cam. It looks cleaner when cam is zoomed in.
11:19:23 <ynpvisitor999®> true
11:20:08 <ynpvisitor25> with it 25 degrees, we may see a cleaning mop before the day is out...
11:20:36 <LindaG> We need tender loving care
11:25:04 <Betty> OF
11:25:15 <Betty> bah
11:25:30 <Betty> streaming is stuck on my side :-(
11:26:49 <LindaG> 🙁 mines streaming
11:27:11 <LindaG> Lions trying
11:27:26 <ynpvisitor999®> it's going
11:27:39 <LindaG> Up, go up
11:27:42 <Betty> choppy all time
11:28:46 <LindaG> It working on it
11:31:01 <Betty> strong wind
11:31:05 <ynpvisitor999®> some strong wind
11:32:02 <LindaG> That person must be getting g blasted by steam
11:34:16 <Betty> is that sun coming out?
11:34:37 <LindaG> Yeah while they all play in the steam
11:35:35 <LindaG> There it is
11:36:48 <LindaG> That's about 9 minutes
11:37:18 <ynpvisitor999®> saw water for about 7m04s
11:37:38 <LindaG> Weak ini?
11:37:47 <ynpvisitor999®> no, above average
11:38:00 <ynpvisitor999®> average is about 6m30s
11:38:24 <ynpvisitor999®> 9 minutes includes part of the ini's concluding steam phase
11:39:04 <LindaG> Ok thx
11:40:27 <ynpvisitor999®> it's actually fairly easy to determine Lion's duration, especially the 2nd eruption-onwards in a series
11:41:27 <LindaG> I dont think I've seen it struggle to gain height before
11:41:58 <LindaG> Especially an ini
11:42:20 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion's start is quite sudden (at least the water part). Same goes for the ending, as it then suddenly stops steaming and jetting for about a second, after which it continues with steaming (this is pretty much the only tricky part in a 'regular' eruption, as it sometimes tends to jet some water again)
11:43:46 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe height-wise it's a below-average eruption (though it was quite tall at times), but duration-wise not quite. Wonder if maximum, average and minimum height controls the eruption's duration
11:46:59 <LindaG> Thx so length of time is most important when determining an ini
11:47:28 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
11:47:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I've actually got a decently-filled graph of Lion series
11:47:52 <ynpvisitor999®> that is, duration-interval
11:48:24 <LindaG> Thx
11:48:42 <ynpvisitor999®> duration of ~7m04s would suggest an interval of about 1h18m-1h20m
11:51:03 <LindaG> So around 15:08 be interesting to see how close it comes
11:52:19 <LindaG> Actually earlier by 20 minutes
11:52:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm predicting next Lion @ 1446 +-5m
11:55:17 <LindaG> Time will tell 😊
12:00:45 <LindaG> Daisy
12:15:49 <Betty> nice bird cam :-)
12:15:49 <LindaG> Filling in for the coyote no doubt
12:16:26 <Eric> Raven work :-D
12:16:35 <Betty> it´s so funny how they walk
12:16:42 <CraigC> love it
12:16:58 <LindaG> Found something
12:17:16 <CraigC> ravens always make me smile
12:23:31 <Eric> Corvus are pretty cool!
12:24:44 <Eric> A raven has 17 primary wing feathers, the big ones at the end of the wing. They are called pinion feathers.
12:25:00 <Eric> A crow has 16.
12:25:32 <Eric> So, the difference between a raven and a crow is basically a matter of a pinion.
12:25:40 <Eric> :-D
12:27:06 <Kent> That was really bad!
12:27:13 <Kent> :)
12:27:19 <Eric> Thanks you!
12:28:14 <Eric> What do you call ravens trying to marry crows?
12:28:34 <Eric> A conspiracy to commit murder.
12:29:27 <CraigC> LOL
12:30:30 <Eric> last Corvus joke...
12:30:33 <Eric> What does a raven bring on an airplane?
12:30:47 <Eric> A carri-on bag!
12:30:52 <CraigC> hahahaha
12:30:55 <Eric> :-P
12:33:16 <ynpvisitor...> I didn't think they could get worse, but I was wrong
12:33:43 <Eric> :-D You are still welcome.
12:34:01 <Eric> Geysers and a show!
12:36:15 <Eric> Really cool video I happened upon:
12:38:02 <ynpvisitor999®> I've seen that, including part 1 where they filmedStrokkur's blue bubbles in slow-motion
12:38:36 <ynpvisitor999®> and also demonstrated that flying a drone above a geyser is quite risky to say the least...
12:42:44 <ynpvisitor67> Anyone else here having trouble loading today's chat log?
12:42:52 <ynpvisitor999®> this is part 1 of the geyser episode:
12:43:43 <ynpvisitor35> you can scrll now, 67
12:44:31 <ynpvisitor67> It just says it's loading...
12:44:46 <Eric> weird...try refreshing your page
12:44:49 <Eric> works here
12:44:55 <ynpvisitor999®> odd, for me it loads
12:44:57 <ynpvisitor67> will do
12:45:39 <ynpvisitor67> nope same message
12:45:47 <ynpvisitor67> using IE
12:45:56 <Eric> Strange
12:46:17 <Eric> I changed a little CSS this morning, but would have no affect on the history loading
12:46:57 <ynpvisitor67> I can get any day but today if that helps
12:46:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
12:47:12 <Eric> nailed it DG
12:47:19 <ynpvisitor999®> :)
12:47:32 <Eric> I have no idea 67 :-(
12:47:37 <ynpvisitor35> also works on IE for me too
12:47:39 <Eric> That is truly weird
12:47:48 <Eric> Try a different browser?
12:47:58 <Eric> Hi Dave
12:48:04 <Dave from home> Hi ,Eric
12:48:14 <Eric> Graham got BH and a 2b grand before he left
12:48:27 <Dave from home> laptop probably needs an update
12:48:41 <Dave from home> Nicre...sure wish Giant would have cooperated
12:48:45 <Eric> Is your clock way off?
12:48:57 <Dave from home> no
12:49:03 <CraigC> got the boat cam today
12:49:04 <Eric> 1/27 around 1449?
12:49:05 <ynpvisitor999®> that's some rough wind
12:49:22 <Eric> Yes, wish we still had windspeed at OF
12:49:24 <Dave from home> gusts to 50 this afternoon in blgs
12:49:39 <CraigC> hey Dave
12:49:43 <Dave from home> cold front blowing in after temps stayed about 40 last night
12:49:55 <Dave from home> Hi Craig
12:50:10 <ynpvisitor35> OF ie
12:50:14 <ynpvisitor35> static
12:50:16 <Eric> Well, stay safe Dave! I am out to go do more home chores
12:50:31 <Eric> Woops...wake up camop
12:50:35 <Eric> There we go
12:51:48 <Dave from home> Nice to see camera moving again
12:53:26 <Dave from home> Only reason I was checking today's log, is that I saw my name mentioned earlier by CC and coiuldn'g see far enough back to know what that was about
12:53:51 <Dave from home> It was early today
12:55:06 <ynpvisitor35> 06:59:27 ‹Kent› I have not received anything from Dave that the cam is back in operation. Did I miss something? 06:59:32 ‹Kent› Hi Joe 06:59:57 ‹ynpvisitorCC› I was told 24 hours after opening 07:00:14 ‹Graham› You didnt do your job Jor 07:00:21 ‹Kent› Thanks CC. 07:00:38 ‹Joe› No I failed badly:( 07:00:41 ‹ynpvisitorCC› VEC opens this morning...admin will be back tomor
12:55:32 <ynpvisitor35> 07:00:45 ‹Kat› Kent CC said it has been 24 hours so go for it. Dave is probably not in the office until tomorrow.
12:55:59 <ynpvisitor35> there is the part
12:56:04 <Dave from home> Thanks
12:56:23 <Dave from home> Not sure if that Dave is actually me
12:56:32 <Dave from home> Dave M perhaps?
12:56:43 <ynpvisitor35> perhaps
12:56:45 <CraigC> are you struggling with identity issues?
12:57:41 <Dave from home> haha
12:59:06 <ynpvisitor35> sun is out. nice
12:59:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Based on the conversation's context, I don't think Dave from home was meant, but a different Dave.
13:01:09 <Dave from home> That's what I'm thinking. Oh, well. Thanks for the info
13:01:35 <Dave from home> DG, I'm intrigued by your Lion duration as a prediction for next Lion. Can you tell me a little about it?
13:02:32 <ynpvisitor999®> sure, but I do think an image is more appropiate here. Hold on
13:03:02 <ynpvisitor999®> I do recall having shared it earlier
13:03:21 <Dave from home> If it's today, I'm out of luck:)
13:04:19 <ynpvisitor25> Dave, CC is talking about the IT guy at Mammoth I think, the NPS person, Dave, back in the office tomorrow. There are more Dave's than you out there...
13:04:58 <Dave from home> I thought I was the only one:P
13:06:07 <Dave from home> That's right. Kent does have a friend in Mammoth...thanks 25
13:06:08 <ynpvisitor999®> This is the graph I made: . If it looks familiar, it's probably because I shared a slightly different version about half a year ago.
13:06:20 <ynpvisitor999®> -> clickable link :)
13:07:15 <ynpvisitor999®> it basically comes down to getting as much times from series as possible
13:08:26 <Dave from home> Great work DG. I'm continually impressed how much you've dove into geysers and you have never been to YNP. Thanks for all yourefforts.
13:09:36 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks
13:11:56 <Dave from home> How long have all the usgs YVO data loggers been down in Norris?
13:12:27 <ynpvisitor999®> I think since the beginning of the shutdown
13:12:30 <LindaG> ynpvisitor999®, I missed lion but looks like you got it exactly
13:13:14 <Dave from home> Thanks. I'm anxiuos to piece all the data together to l;earn more about Norris
13:15:20 <Joe> Kent, Dave from home, and others the Dave being spoken about in the earlier conversation is Dave Keruger the camops Boss in Mammoth
13:16:26 <Joe> Krueger*
13:16:31 <ynpvisitor999®> even if all of Norris' loggers go back into operation tomorrow, I don't expect to see Steamboat's logger data, as it has different settings which are not compatible with the radio frequency(?) used in Norris
13:17:20 <Dave from home> But it will give us info about other geysers in the basin which helps a bit
13:17:26 <ynpvisitor999®> true
13:17:47 <Dave from home> I'm guessing it will be Spring before we see SB logger working
13:18:26 <ynpvisitor999®> probably, or if Bill feels especially productive we might see it sooner
13:18:54 <Dave from home> I bet he will be far behind after taking a month off.
13:20:08 <ynpvisitor999®> yeah, that backlog is likely quite long
13:23:16 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching Lion
13:23:29 <Dave from home> Have a good night DG
13:24:22 <Joe> Dave from home, Did you see my above comment?
13:25:01 <Dave from home> Yes, thanks. That clears up a lot
13:25:39 <Dave from home> Hope you feeling today Joe after your head incident?
13:25:49 <Dave from home> Hope = How are
13:25:53 <Joe> Ok , I thought maybe you missed it
13:28:22 <Joe> Better, it is good that I have a "hard head" as people say, after I get the shoulder fixed they are going to continue looking into my falling problem
13:28:41 <Joe> Riverside
13:29:11 <Dave from home> How often are you falling?
13:31:05 <Joe> Dave i use a walker at home and a cane out in the world to help keep me up when I stumble so not often
13:32:09 <Dave from home> That's good.
13:32:43 <Joe> but If I did not use those it would be at least once a week, yesterday I had gotten about 5 feet from my walker before I was on the ground
13:33:25 <Dave from home> It's not fun getting old
13:35:09 <Joe> If I am walking on my own any distraction and I am on the ground
13:35:43 <LindaG> I hope they can figure it out joe
13:35:59 <Dave from home> How long has this been happening?
13:36:34 <Joe> the saying about "can't chew bubblegum and walk at the same time" is true in my case :)
13:37:26 <Joe> It has been happening since Feburary
13:38:03 <Dave from home> My mom has Parkinson's. Is that a possibility?
13:39:09 <Joe> They havent found a reason, MRI's nerve studys show nothing, Yes that could be possible,
13:39:36 <Dave from home> If so, there is medication that really helps
13:41:12 <Dave from home> I hope your upcoming surgery goes well. That is later this week?
13:41:51 <LindaG> If you lived in the east I would suggest getting tested for lyme. Not sure how prevalent it is in the west.
13:41:54 <Joe> yes Thursday
13:43:54 <Joe> I spent threemonths in a Billings nursing home 2years ago, infection that went sepsis I remember nothing from the first month, my mind has not been the same since
13:44:13 <Joe> I think that is the root of the problem
13:49:00 <LindaG> First the shoulder so you an sleep. ThTs important
13:49:18 <LindaG> *That's
13:49:47 <Joe> Yes linda
13:51:00 <Dave from home> With a sore shoulder, do you find it easier to sleep in a recliner?
13:51:42 <LindaG> Grove
13:52:39 <Joe> I do sleep in a recliner, the only time I 'm in abed is when I'm in the hospital :(
13:52:53 <Joe> Lion
13:53:25 <Dave from home> Hopefully that will change after your surgery
13:55:31 <Joe> Camop If you are not gong to post that I will
13:57:30 <Joe> I'm sure it will, Dave i have no pain in the right shoulder that was replaced
14:11:44 <Joe> Is Graham on his way towarde Mammoth?
14:12:03 <Joe> towards*
14:12:40 <Dave from home> Yes
14:12:56 <ynpvisitor...> That's his ghost at Beehive :(
14:13:26 <Dave from home> Hey Kent
14:13:37 <ynpvisitor...> Hey Dave
14:18:23 <Dave from home> Are you planning a winter trip to YNP or have you been already?
14:29:17 <ynpvisitor...> I am coming up for Doug Smith's talk at the MOR in Bozeman on the 13th if the weather cooperates. I will also do the Northern Range
14:31:55 <Joe> OF
14:32:44 <STS> Got it
14:33:35 <Dave from home> That sounds fun.
14:35:26 <Joe> long
14:36:55 <ynpvisitor...> I wonder if there is such a thing as a Flir webcam?
14:55:53 <Joe> I have looked for a Flir webcam and I have found no thermal imaging "webcams", I would imagine you could take the output of one and stream it, true Flir cams must be expensive, all I find say ask for quote.
14:57:07 <ynpvisitor...> It would be fun especially if it worked at night
15:00:22 <ynpvisitor65> Lion ie
15:02:10 <ynpvisitor65> You are quick joe
15:03:06 <Joe> Got nothing else to do :)
15:03:23 <ynpvisitor65> 😊
15:04:53 <Joe> Steam Giant area?
15:05:28 <LindaG> Looks further left then grotto
15:05:59 <Joe> or is that wind blown Turbans
15:07:18 <LindaG> Seems to be separate, i think
15:07:59 <LindaG> What are you going to do about your shift Thursday night?
15:10:03 <Joe> I dont do thursday nights Keven put that in the schedule when I was filling in for some od DameM's shifts, thursdat night is open
15:10:28 <LindaG> Oh ok
15:10:35 <Joe> can't type but you get the drift
15:10:42 <LindaG> Yup
15:14:07 <Joe> see you later, I have a chore to do
15:14:15 <LindaG> Bye
15:20:13 <Casey> Lion
15:26:04 <LindaG> Daisy
15:26:13 <ynpvisitor...> Daisy 1724 wc
15:26:24 <ynpvisitor62> no op?
15:26:42 <ynpvisitor62> been a while since we've been able to do Daisy up close
15:28:03 <ynpvisitor62> I need Dave M to have a shift
15:31:34 <ynpvisitor62> North Entrance cam still on last night
16:05:05 <STS> OF
16:25:09 <Joe> .Grand
16:25:11 <ynpvisitor...> Grand perhaps - 1924
16:32:02 <Joe> Lion
17:39:11 <ynpvisitor...>
18:48:22 <LindaG> Something big out there and grand isnt due until 1am
18:51:18 <LindaG> Lion ie
18:55:48 <LindaG> I'm wondering if that is giant
19:04:38 <LindaG> Castle ie?
19:06:44 <ynpvisitor38> Doesn't look it to me.
19:07:21 <LindaG> Doesn't now, a little while ago there was a pretty tall plume
19:08:54 <LindaG> Oh well not sure, they'll have to take a look tomorrow
19:11:01 <ynpvisitor38> yup. I fall back on the overnight review pretty often.
19:15:20 <ynpvisitor38> OF
19:59:40 <ynpvisitor38> Lion ie
21:08:21 <ynpvisitor2> O.F. - ie
21:14:44 <ynpvisitor2> Lion roared a lot today
21:17:40 <ynpvisitor105> 7 times so far
21:20:41 <ynpvisitor2> I find 10 on the app for today
21:26:51 <ynpvisitor63> But will the Lion sleep tonight?
21:30:21 <ynpvisitor2> I think after 10 eruptions, Lion will sleep well. We'll see.
21:35:11 <ynpvisitor3> In the basin the mighty basin...
21:37:58 <ynpvisitor2> The Lion will sleep tonight...Would like to see a BH on time tonight...Doubt it.
21:41:54 <ynpvisitor105> castle
21:42:38 <ynpvisitor3> Maybe the knights are out hunting lions.
21:44:26 <ynpvisitor2> I think Knights are sleeping too. All star weekend it was.
21:45:56 <ynpvisitor3> I think they were sleeping before all star weekend.
21:46:04 <ynpvisitor105> i can't count ten lions it is
21:47:41 <ynpvisitor2> I would ask Kevin's opinion on that.
21:52:12 <ynpvisitor3> I think Graham's team was sleeping too. I think Kevin made a comment about wounded Girl Scouts.
21:55:56 <ynpvisitor2> I'll leave that to the hockey fans to discuss. I'll just observe their discussions and watch the basin.
21:58:39 <ynpvisitor3> It is kind of funny. I had to laugh last year when two longshots went for the Stanley Cup.
21:59:56 <ynpvisitor3> Goo luck with BH. I am out of here.
