04:18:14 <STS> Today is supposed to be 46. Nothing like a 100 degree jump
04:18:25 <CraigC> "You sure there will be a tomorrow? There wasn't one today." I love that line from Groundhog Day
04:18:33 <STS> LindaG, South Dakota
04:18:56 <LindaG> Ah that's cold
04:19:35 <LindaG> It was a cute movie
04:19:44 <STS> Wasn’t fun. But now that it’s in the 40s we get to deal with the dirty, slushy snow melting

06:17:33 <Joe> hi dave
06:17:39 <Dave from B™> Good morning Joe and the crew
06:17:44 <CraigC> Morning, dave
06:17:56 <LindaG> Hi dave
06:18:03 <Joe> all done, when is yours?
06:18:04 <ynpvisitorCC> Dave what's up with your shoulder?
06:18:45 <Dave from B™> Date still TBA....The date I was given was 8 days before going to Hawaii. Trying to find another qualified doctor in the same practice
06:20:05 <Dave from B™> CC, I have a large calcium dposit (bone spur) on the right shoulder that got inflamed about 5 weeks ago by working out and it won't clam down. I had this issue 12 years ago but it went away beofre when the spur was only 1/3 of the current size.
06:20:14 <Dave from B™> calm*
06:20:18 <Joe> dr found reason for severe pain, bone on bone and golf ball sized bone spur floating around
06:20:33 <ynpvisitorCC> Sorry to hear
06:21:30 <Dave from B™> Joe, that's not fun. I hope your surgery went well
06:22:04 <CraigC> golf ball size? yikes.... glad it got fixed
06:22:18 <LindaG> Snow coaches at the gate, incoming.
06:22:24 <Joe> very well shoulder is great
06:26:12 <Dave from B™> joe, I think you must have taken the BH button with you to surgery because we couldn't find it while you were gone.
06:26:50 <LindaG> Hehe I told Joe BEE was waiting for him
06:26:59 <Joe> wow no bh that long
06:27:26 <CraigC> I think BH went yesterday in the early morning hours when visibility was shot
06:27:48 <LindaG> At 3:21 I believe
06:28:33 <Dave from B™> 321 was 2 days ago
06:28:36 <CraigC> LindaG, did you see something in the video?
06:28:52 <CraigC> Dave from B™, yeah, that is what I was thinking, too
06:29:19 <Dave from B™> Crig, 3 people from my subdivision posted that sunrise to FB this morning
06:29:23 <Dave from B™> Craig*
06:29:25 <CraigC> the fog was really thick yesterday morning
06:29:48 <CraigC> Dave from B™, that was a gorgeous shot, and view
06:29:49 <LindaG> You are right 3:21 on 31st
06:31:03 <STS> Grand should be soon
06:32:13 <Joe> grand
06:32:16 <Joe> '
06:32:19 <Joe> '
06:32:24 <CraigC> LOL
06:32:32 <CraigC> want me to log it?
06:32:41 <Dave from B™> is 70 seconds soon?
06:32:43 <Joe> i cant
06:32:50 <CraigC> time?
06:33:05 <STS> Hahaha, my goodness
06:33:22 <Dave from B™> 832 sounds good
06:33:30 <STS> I'd do 8:32
06:33:45 <Joe> i'll lookdave should have tine
06:34:41 <Joe> oh you got time
06:36:39 <Joe> dave the after op pain is a walk in the park compared to the before op pain
06:37:36 <Dave from B™> That's good to know because I'm not very efficient at work right now. Hard to completely focus.
06:38:49 <Joe> i understand completely
06:43:38 <CraigC> If any additional codes or anything needs to be added on Grand, you'll have to let me know.
06:46:35 <Joe> i dont think there was a secondb but i looked away for a few seconds
06:47:26 <CraigC> I like helping, but I'm not very versed
06:48:19 <ynpvisitorCC> I think it was a 1 burst
07:02:34 <CraigC> hey Kevin
07:03:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
07:10:09 <CraigC> snowing now
07:10:45 <Dave from B™> Blgs is expecting 3-8" from Sat 11 pm until Mon noon
07:11:12 <CraigC> no shoveling
07:11:58 <Kevin L™🌵> No shoveling here either!
07:12:09 <Dave from B™> I have a heavy duty snowblower
07:12:18 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:12:55 <Dave from B™> Until Billings started plowing residential streets last year, I needed to snowblow our street once or twice a season
07:13:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Isn't that what teenage boys are for?
07:15:19 <Dave from B™> My choices are my wife or 2 dogs between 5 and 11#
07:16:08 <CraigC> I take care of most my neighbors with my ATV and plow. I hardly ever see any teenagers out clearing snow.
07:16:15 <ynpvisitor61> I watched gosa from last night. I dont think I saw bee but I saw what I think was lion at 23:37ish and at 2:45ish. The 2:45 is extremely hard to see. If anyone wants to double check me.
07:17:37 <Kevin L™🌵> When my inlaws lived in Cedar City the teenage boys would always shovel their sidewalk and drive without being ask. I was impressed.
07:20:31 <Joe> 2335 lion
07:20:46 <LindaG> Yay I'll put in
07:21:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning Joe. Didn't expect to see you on here today.
07:21:59 <Joe> hi kevin, feeling great allwent well
07:22:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice to hear that.
07:27:16 <Dave from B™> Joe, did you have surgery done in Casper?
07:28:52 <Joe> linda 0244 lion
07:29:09 <LindaG> Ok I'll enter
07:29:34 <Joe> no dave worland, dr lee
07:33:56 <Joe> he is with big horn bone and joint out of cody
07:34:31 <Joe> big horn basin
07:35:18 <Dave from B™> It's nice that you didn't have to travel too far
07:35:50 <Joe> yes just 26 miles
07:38:07 <Joe> of
07:38:36 <STS> Got it
07:39:06 <CraigC> so did I :)
07:45:40 <lc> morning everyone
07:45:49 <Dave from B™> Morning lc
07:45:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi lc. Been a while.
07:46:49 <Michael> Hi lc.
07:47:00 <lc> got news this morning that Dan Hatfield passed away Sunday Jan 27th.
07:47:20 <lc> very sad day here.
07:47:24 <Dave from B™> Oh, no. Sorry to hear that, lc
07:48:14 <Dave from B™> Thanks for letting us know. Hold old was Dan?
07:48:32 <lc> 69
07:49:01 <Dave from B™> I didn't realize he was so young. Had he been sick?
07:49:23 <lc> about a year.
07:50:44 <Dave from B™> That's right. They didn't come to YNP last year, correct?
07:51:58 <ynpvisitor18> oh, sad!! Thanks for telling us LC
07:52:58 <Michael> Yes, thanks. I'll pass the news on to my Mom. We haven't seen the Hatfields in years but he will be missed.
07:52:59 <lc> I think their last trip to Yellowstone was July 2015
07:53:41 <Dave from B™> I didn't realize it had been that long. We only met once in your cabin.
07:53:59 <lc> Michael, I thought your mom ans Stephanie were good friends.
07:55:38 <LindaG> Looks a little steamy by BEE
07:56:45 <Michael> They got along famously well in the Park. I don't think they were in touch much the rest of the year.
07:58:36 <lc> yes, that was my memory of them.
08:04:31 <ynpvisitor88> Anyone see Casey?? he never cam home last night.
08:05:13 <Dave from B™> Mary, you just now noticed?
08:05:24 <ynpvisitor88> I heard he got pushed into SB
08:06:05 <Dave from B™> lc, give my best to the Hatfield family. How are you and ma handling the cold?
08:06:45 <ynpvisitor88> You see the earthquake swarm in Indonesia...... Oh the end of the world is coming. LOL
08:07:26 <ynpvisitor88> We we colder than antarctica
08:07:37 <ynpvisitor88> were. it's 28 now
08:07:40 <lc> we did ok, its 57 here now.
08:08:13 <ynpvisitor88> Sioux Fall is suppose to be in the 50's
08:08:20 <Dave from B™> We missed the cold but are going to get a small taste this week. Lows below 0 4 nights in a row beginning Sunday night
08:08:38 <lc> we didn't get THAT cold, low was about 17.
08:08:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. You are warmer than I am lc.
08:08:58 <Kevin L™🌵> 55° here.
08:09:15 <lc> may get to 65 monday.
08:09:22 <ynpvisitor88> I have on window open now. Nice to get fresh air.
08:09:39 <Michael> We're getting 2 or 3 seasons in the span of a week.
08:10:05 <lc> same here Michael
08:10:27 <ynpvisitor88> Yep. Interesting research what is happening. paper from 2009
08:10:39 <lc> from 60 to 17 to 65.
08:12:48 <ynpvisitor88> I was thinking it was like the movie "the Day After Tomorrow" here this last week. was using the over to heat the apartment
08:13:24 <ynpvisitor88> At least I didn't have to get the generator out.
08:13:36 <ynpvisitor88> Our power stayed on.
08:16:14 <ynpvisitor88> So where is my husband?
08:17:36 <ynpvisitor88> Can I divorce him if I say it three times? I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you. There I now single. Yeah. He would hog the remote to the TV anyways.
08:18:49 <CraigC> only works with "Betelgeuse"
08:19:46 <LindaG> Someone out on bw, brave
08:20:03 <Dave from B™> It's 31F...Why is that brave?:)
08:20:22 <LindaG> Looks miserable out there
08:21:28 <LindaG> Warmer there than here
08:22:43 <LindaG> Bee doing some steaming on static
08:27:14 <Michael> Would be nice for Beehive to come out and play in the daylight.
08:27:54 <LindaG> I think it's going to, steaming. Fingers crossed
08:34:47 <lc> have a good day all.
08:35:05 <LindaG> Enjoy
08:35:26 <CraigC> condolences on your friend
08:35:50 <Dave from B™> Have a good day, lc
08:36:41 <Michael> Bye, lc. Next time will be a cheerier occassion, I'm sure.
08:41:51 <LindaG> Morning betty
08:42:08 <Betty> hi again, Linda
08:42:39 <LindaG> 😊
08:42:54 <LindaG> I forgot you were already here
08:43:53 <Michael> Hi Betty, you're here to wake up a few geysers?
08:43:54 <CraigC> hi Betty
08:44:31 <Betty> hi Michael, sure I am :-)
08:44:39 <Betty> hi Craig
08:45:45 <CraigC> can you nudge BH, please?
08:52:37 <Betty> just read the chat log and feel sorry to hear that a geyser gazer family member had passed away :-(
08:55:29 <CraigC> wowowow
08:55:41 <CraigC> those tourists are wayyyyy to close
08:55:44 <LindaG> Doggie
08:56:31 <CraigC> grrrrr
08:56:59 <Dave from B™> Are those kids?
08:57:10 <CraigC> looks like the one reaching out is
08:57:42 <LindaG> Hopefully bison dont have energy to waste on them
08:57:50 <ynpvisitor24> Fortunate that those bison seem chill.
08:58:23 <CraigC> I thought there was staff in the VEC, there were 2 people named on an OF entry earlier
08:59:47 <LindaG> Uh oh
09:00:05 <LindaG> They are frisky
09:02:41 <LindaG> Think I see bubblers out there
09:07:50 <CraigC> who just typed "OF" then backspaced?
09:09:17 <LindaG> Not I
09:09:21 <Michael> I thought about typing OF but didn't do it.
09:09:38 <CraigC> same
09:10:44 <LindaG> Possible indy
09:11:09 <LindaG> But...
09:11:22 <Michael> Nope. not yet.
09:12:10 <LindaG> Its messin with me
09:13:02 <Dave from B™> Craig, does VEC staff handle animal issues or does the call automatically go to LE?
09:13:13 <Dave from B™> Oops, meant htat question for everyone
09:14:18 <CraigC> I don't know. I hoped that any park employee could tell people to back off the wildlife. I'm not one, and I tell people
09:14:55 <Michael> I don't know the operating procedure. Would guess that an interpretive would go out to remind people of the legal safe distance, then call in LE if needed.
09:15:07 <ynpvisitor79> In summer, VEC crew handle bison issues in the basin
09:15:52 <ynpvisitor79> In winter, they may be too short staffed to send someone out
09:16:53 <Michael> OF. For real this time.
09:17:05 <ynpvisitor79> Did you guys hear that people saw SB yesterday?
09:17:06 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
09:17:22 <CraigC> ynpvisitor79, I saw it in the GT entry, 3 people there
09:17:46 <LindaG> Nice static
09:19:38 <Michael> That's terrific. Would make anyone's day.
09:20:54 <CraigC> same person that saw SB and entered the GT note, also witnessed the last Giant from a trail
09:21:08 <LindaG> Lucky duck
09:21:14 <ynpvisitor79> My delay was over a minute
09:21:48 <Dave from B™> Off to sweat some more. Have a great day everyone!
09:21:51 <ynpvisitor79> Nope. She entered SB yet was not the observer
09:23:20 <CraigC> ynpvisitor79, sure she wasn't both, just adding the others?
09:25:35 <Michael> My first guess was she was relaying the report from other observers, but now that you mention it, it's not clear.
09:26:14 <Michael> Bye Dave. (probably too late)
09:27:17 <CraigC> I saw an entry last year where someone that was at SB logged it and added lots of names of other gazers there
09:27:59 <CraigC> 9/7/18 for instance
09:31:26 <Michael> Mostly I wouldn't expect an OF interpretive ranger to make a trek out to Norris, even on a day off.
09:32:57 <CraigC> Mine is pure assumption, could easily be wrong on it
09:33:55 <Michael> As is mine. :)
09:39:52 <Michael> Did anyone catch the last OF duration?
09:40:13 <Betty> Hey Linda, at 2335 that was BH, not Lion
09:40:32 <Betty> sorry, no idea, Michael
09:41:55 <LindaG> Really? Cool!
09:43:49 <Betty> I was wondering about 2 single Lion entries only a few hrs apart and checked the capture
09:44:34 <Betty> I found Lion ini at 0123
09:44:36 <CraigC> Betty, good catch, I could barely make it out
09:44:38 <LindaG> Ok. I just looked this morning at them, while looking for Bee. I was so sure that was lion.
09:46:38 <CraigC> you can see the impression of a column further into the foreground than Lion, at least what I was seeing
09:47:09 <Betty> they are in almost the same position, but BH is a bit taller than Lion
09:47:29 <Betty> yes, Craig
09:47:52 <Betty> the BH column appears to be more dense
09:48:22 <LindaG> Ah I was thinking opposite that lion was taller than bee
09:49:00 <Michael> Beehive usually clears the background trees, Lion almost never does.
09:49:16 <Michael> Not that you can see the treeline on a moonless night...
09:49:19 <Betty> yep
09:49:25 <Betty> hehe
09:50:04 <CraigC> if I had to watch at night, I would probably stick pinstriping on my screen during daylight for the hard to tell ones
09:50:20 <LindaG> Again I was thinking the opposite. I could see that it cleared the trees. Good discussion
09:50:23 <Betty> I thought I saw a glimpse of the 3% moonlight on top of the column ;-)
09:50:50 <LindaG> Yes there was some light on top that's what caught my eye
09:51:18 <Michael> That's a good idea, Craig. It would help a lot on foggy mornings too.
09:51:35 <LindaG> On a decent lit night I can tell.
09:52:15 <LindaG> Frank said he had postits on the screen where all the geysers were
09:52:33 <Betty> that´s cool
09:52:56 <LindaG> Well at least we found Bee!
09:53:28 <LindaG> Or Betty found bee
09:54:14 <Michael> That's like the night-time version of the "reference image"
09:54:20 <CraigC> that was earlier than I had guessed, I thought it had gone during the heavy fog
09:54:29 <Betty> I may not have checked when you had not entered those single Lions
09:55:21 <CraigC> grotto area
09:55:27 <Betty> Riverside
09:55:35 <CraigC> oops, yeah, Riverside
09:55:56 <LindaG> 😊 It all worked out
09:56:07 <Betty> :thumbsup:
09:57:37 <Betty> and now we are in BH window again :-D
09:58:06 <LindaG> It's doing something out there
09:58:40 <Michael> I doubt the GT prediction has a good handle on Beehive these days. But we can hope.
09:59:06 <Betty> it sure is not
10:02:08 <LindaG> Betty, did you see the aurum yesterday on live stream? It was pretty nice.
10:02:30 <Betty> no
10:02:40 <Betty> will do
10:03:20 <LindaG> It was later like 1500, I had left and came back
10:04:35 <Betty> yes, really a good one. nice and clear
10:12:22 <ynpvisitor3> Yeah the lighting was great
10:14:55 <ynpvisitor3> Now I have doubts about bee going, but could have sworn I saw bubblers
10:15:48 <Betty> it´s sure already time for bubblers
10:16:10 <Betty> Dome ie
10:35:04 <CraigC> what's up with Daisy?
10:35:21 <CraigC> have we been missing them in the lower light?
10:36:33 <CraigC> speak-of-the-devil, isn;t it goingnow?
10:37:04 <CraigC> camops?
10:37:17 <Betty> no Daisy atm
10:38:04 <ynpvisitor86> GFM here, going to be about an hour late, 1400
10:40:09 <Michael> OK, but is that Daisy now?
10:40:22 <CraigC> now it is, right
10:40:58 <Michael> Yeah, I'm convinced.
10:41:09 <CraigC> yep
10:41:17 <Betty> yes
10:41:34 <CraigC> we must have missed one in between, though
10:42:03 <Betty> maybe those bison distracted us
10:42:09 <CraigC> LOL
10:42:12 <Michael> Most likely. But Daisy can throw in unexpected long intervals sometimes.
10:42:48 <Michael> [And yes, it may well have gone during the bison show.]
10:45:36 <CraigC> my screen capture of the tourists and bison says 1 hour ago
10:46:22 <CraigC> no, 11:02
10:46:30 <Michael> OK. so not then.
10:47:47 <CraigC> hopefully one of us remembers to watch the GOSA clip tomorrow
10:49:11 <CraigC> actually, checking the chat times, it was 10:55 with Linda said "doggies"... so maybe....
10:49:33 <Michael> OF
10:50:53 <Michael> Looks like we should hunt for Daisy around 10:00. Unless the fog/snow was too thick then.
10:52:31 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
10:53:26 <CraigC> I don't remember it being real thick, but really low light
10:53:57 <CraigC> Grand was decent viewing
10:54:17 <LindaG> Lol while looking for bee on gosa earlier, I kept getting distracted by shooting stars. So hard to concentrate.
10:55:46 <LindaG> Fluffy
10:57:13 <Betty> Lion
10:58:31 <Michael> Old Faithful is not sharing the spotlight with Lion very well.
11:02:53 <Michael> Betting time: Grand before or after the next Lion? Bonus question: Will we be able to see it?
11:03:41 <Betty> super bonus: will we be able to see both ? :-p
11:03:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand over or under 150 feet
11:04:28 <CraigC> before
11:06:12 <Michael> I'll guess Grand goes long, so Lion first, then OF and Grand.
11:07:01 <Michael> Going to be a busy few minutes in the basin.
11:07:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Prop bets for superbowl:
11:10:31 <CraigC> thjose are funny
11:10:40 <CraigC> I never made it through all of them
11:11:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I like the Gladys Knight ones.
11:48:39 <GO SNOW> guess i needent have been in a rush to get home
12:27:49 <ynpvisitor3> Autumn?
12:27:56 <ynpvisitor3> Aurum*?
12:28:16 <Betty> not yet, wait til march :-)
12:28:34 <ynpvisitor3> ;)
12:28:50 <ynpvisitor3> Looked like it was steaming pretty good
12:30:22 <GO SNOW> Dome instead
12:30:49 <Betty> I did not see it, but my streaming is choppy atm
12:31:02 <Betty> Dome
12:32:55 <Michael> Grand
12:33:21 <Betty> did we miss Lion?
12:33:23 <Michael> Guess my Grand vs. Lion prediction was wrong.
12:33:29 <CraigC> Michael, what did I win?
12:33:38 <GO SNOW> glad we can see it
12:34:14 <ynpvisitor3> I see steaming from over by lion
12:34:19 <CraigC> dual
12:34:30 <CraigC> triple?
12:34:57 <ynpvisitor3> Of preplay
12:35:03 <ynpvisitor3> Of
12:40:35 <Michael> Lion either snuck in a minor while I wasn't paying attention, or it just didn't feel like having a series.
12:41:07 <CraigC> I snuck off for a nap....
12:44:26 <GO SNOW> i didnt see a Lion
12:45:19 <CraigC> strange wind movement
12:45:45 <Michael> did anyone see a snow leopard instead of a Lion? That would be great too.
12:46:01 <CraigC> bonus points
12:56:35 <LindaG> CraigC, hey, speaking of ground hog day this morning did you know it was a movie about buddhism?
12:56:59 <CraigC> LindaG, I didn't
12:58:03 <CraigC> repeated suffering
12:58:30 <LindaG> Him not being able to get out of his cycle until he perfects himself, like a person continuing to be rei cart
12:58:49 <LindaG> Reincarnated until he reaches enlightenment
12:59:48 <CraigC> ahhh, makes sense
13:00:12 <LindaG> The producer is buddhist
13:00:40 <Betty> indy
13:00:41 <Betty> .
13:00:42 <Betty> .
13:00:43 <Betty> .
13:00:54 <CraigC> we saw a preview last night for a series that seems to be a ripoff, a lady relives her bday over and over and keeps dying, and has to avoid each way of dying each new time
13:00:58 <LindaG> Just noticed
13:01:12 <Michael> That's a pleasant surprise.
13:01:15 <CraigC> yayay
13:01:28 <Michael> I'll trade a Lion for Beehive. At least for today.
13:01:40 <kcmule> text needed, or on the way?
13:01:48 <Betty> on the way
13:01:48 <kcmule> got it
13:01:50 <kcmule> ty
13:02:04 <Betty> hi kcmule, btw :-)
13:02:15 <Betty> LC ie
13:02:20 <kcmule> evenin Betty
13:02:34 <LindaG> I just got back yay!
13:03:07 <kcmule> Graham still traveling home?
13:03:25 <LindaG> Said he'd be late tody
13:03:30 <GO SNOW> im here
13:03:33 <CraigC> I think he is in here now
13:03:39 <ynpvisitorCC> perfect timing
13:03:44 <LindaG> Hehe sorry
13:03:57 <ynpvisitorCC> Hey Kc
13:04:06 <ynpvisitorCC> It has been a while KC
13:04:14 <kcmule> hi there CC. indeed
13:04:19 <ynpvisitorCC> hope all is well
13:04:42 <kcmule> and you. I still have a monitor dedicated to YNP cams
13:05:07 <ynpvisitorCC> we miss you as an operator
13:05:11 <Betty> a back-to-daylight BH :-)
13:05:39 <kcmule> who knows what the future holds CC
13:06:11 <LindaG> It does like the dark side every once nd while
13:07:03 <CraigC> Betty did a great job of finding it in the dark
13:11:36 <CraigC> Daisy could go too
13:12:11 <CraigC> :bee:
13:12:38 <Michael> Daisy may lose out this time, unless it waits a few minutes.
13:13:26 <LindaG> Hi there bee
13:13:46 <kcmule> whiter shade of pale bh today
13:14:45 <LindaG> Well maybe it will keep its day job for while
13:15:47 <ynpvisitorCC> night all
13:15:56 <LindaG> Night
13:16:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Knight CC
13:16:26 <CraigC> cya CC
13:17:23 <LindaG> Watching bee and I can see that is taller than trees
13:18:53 <Betty> :thumbsup:
13:18:58 <LindaG> *It is
13:24:37 <CraigC> hey Frank
13:24:38 <Frank> Hello all, I apoligize for not seeing anything erupt on GH last night. Thanks for catching me. Yikes!
13:25:13 <Betty> hi Frank
13:25:40 <Frank> Hi Betty & Craig
13:26:40 <Betty> it is much easier to see things on the brighter and faster capture than online in moonless nights
13:28:14 <Frank> Thanks Betty. I know it makes extra work for you all. I don't have an adavantage of capture.
13:31:52 <Michael> A few people look at captrues in real-time. The rest take advantage of GOSA's YouTube video page:
13:32:56 <Frank> Thanks Michael. I was getting ready to watch last night's capture.
13:35:29 <Frank> Maybe it's the way I cast my live tab that hinders my vision. The pic look different when I cast live tab than YNP site.
13:42:59 <CraigC> what feature is steaming at the furthest right of the screen?
13:43:15 <Kevin L™🌵> .Dome
13:48:29 <Frank> I did see BH on capture, but I still could not see either Lion.
13:52:27 <Frank> I'm going to sign off for a bit and enjoy my coffee. I hope you still will let me try to log geysers. I've disappointed myself.
13:54:02 <CraigC> Frank, dude, you're doing a service for others that is appreciated
13:54:28 <Michael> North Goggle?
13:54:40 <Betty> NG
13:56:04 <Michael> Filling in eruption times is always appreciated. Though if you're unsure about something, it's better to mark it with a ? or leave it out.
14:02:59 <CraigC> Daisy?
14:03:27 <CraigC> ehhhh, maybe not
14:08:44 <Betty> OF
14:19:55 <Michael> dome ie again
14:40:29 <Michael> Hi Kent. Did you bring a shovel?
14:40:55 <Kent> We may need one
14:45:27 <Kent> It might be a fun few days to be in the park.
14:55:29 <GO GIANT> dome
15:13:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like another bad Knight. Down 1-0 in 12 seconds. :P
15:17:54 <Michael> 12 seconds? were both teams on the ice already?
15:18:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Only one was
15:29:40 <Betty> Dome
15:30:08 <LindaG> Dome
15:31:02 <LindaG> Guess you already did that
15:34:35 <Betty> Daisy
15:36:17 <Michael> If that's a double interval, we were probably all a little late looking for the last one.
15:44:32 <Betty> OF ie
16:08:29 <GO GIANT> dome
16:09:15 <Betty> time to get some sleep. Night all
16:11:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Knight
16:56:27 <Frank> Hello all. I'm back to try again. Maybe me and the Knight's goalie will have better eyesight tonight.
17:00:09 <Kevin L™🌵> The one last Knight was the 3rd string. Back to the normal guy toKnight. 1-1 start of 3rd.
17:02:11 <Frank> I saw that it was tied. Glad it was the 3rd string goalie last night. If anything, I can at least see & log Fluffly.
17:02:25 <Frank> I know y'all understand about the darkness of new moon.
17:03:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't feel bad. I have been running the cam for over 7 years and I still can't tell much at Knight. Dave M is pretty awesome about picking things out of the darkness.
17:06:43 <Frank> I'm not feeling bad any more. I was just surprised when I looked at the log in bed after I my sleep period.
17:16:17 <Frank> 19:15 Castle ie?
17:17:11 <ynpvisitor6> OF
17:17:23 <Frank> Thanks
17:17:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks possible. I do see steam in the area
17:17:49 <ynpvisitor6> And it’s the right time for Castle
17:18:47 <ynpvisitor55> Hi guys
17:18:57 <ynpvisitor55> LindaG
17:19:05 <Frank> I'll leave it to the electronic monitor or should I just enter a questionable.
17:19:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
17:19:13 <Frank> Hi Linda
17:19:27 <ynpvisitor6> Hello Linda
17:19:39 <ynpvisitor6> Guess I should mention this is STS
17:19:44 <LindaG> Hi Frank I wanted to tell you not to feel bad
17:20:25 <Frank> Thanks Linda for logging on to tell me that. I appreciate it.
17:20:30 <LindaG> Hi 6
17:20:40 <LindaG> This is hard
17:20:47 <Frank> Hello STS
17:20:50 <ynpvisitor6> Yes, don’t feel bad!
17:21:34 <ynpvisitor6> I’m learning it’s difficult to decipher geyserss, especially at night
17:22:10 <Frank> Especially in a new moon period.
17:22:30 <ynpvisitor6> And the weather is supposed to be bad tonight as well
17:22:35 <LindaG> As we get more moon it will get easier
17:22:59 <Frank> It sure does get easier w/the moon.
17:23:16 <Frank> It's so beautiful on the basin during the full moon.
17:23:24 <ynpvisitor6> Absolutely
17:24:34 <Frank> Should I log Castle as ie and ?. I marked 19:13 when I first saw the steam. Does this help anyone is the morn?
17:24:39 <LindaG> OF steam makes things difficult for seeing bee and lion
17:24:55 <Kevin L™🌵> And Grand
17:25:06 <LindaG> Sure Joe can look at it
17:25:07 <Frank> Fluffly loves to get in the way.
17:25:08 <ynpvisitor6> And riverside
17:25:26 <Frank> The lights of West really helps when they are visible.
17:25:40 <ynpvisitor6> I’d actually go ahead and mark it without the ?
17:25:58 <Frank> Thanks STS, I'll just put ie
17:26:00 <ynpvisitor6> Steaming plus the correct interval, you probably saw Castle
17:26:19 <Frank> Has anyone heard about Joe. He's been in my prayers.
17:26:31 <LindaG> Looks like something happening out by castle area
17:26:33 <ynpvisitor6> Joe was on this morning for a bit
17:26:35 <Kevin L™🌵> He was on this morning doing well.
17:26:55 <Frank> I am glad to read that.
17:28:13 <ynpvisitor6> Our friend Casey got a shoutout
17:28:41 <LindaG> What does that mean?
17:28:45 <ynpvisitor6> From a prominent “alternative news” figure
17:29:09 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
17:29:58 <Frank> Alternative news? One who spreads over exaggerated facts about YNP?
17:30:19 <ynpvisitor6> Yes.
17:30:32 <ynpvisitor6> And doomsday
17:30:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Facts? She don't need no stinking facts!
17:30:53 <LindaG> Oh that's right lol
17:32:09 <ynpvisitor6> Ah well
17:32:38 <Frank> Those YT people. Fortunately, I also watch a well modded YT volcano viewing page. No BS there.
17:33:13 <Frank> Hi Joe, I saw your name. It's good to read that. I know you're probably resting.
17:34:48 <ynpvisitor6> It’s gonna be a poor viewing night
17:35:03 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, that was a great aurum yesterday, told Betty about it so she could see it
17:35:44 <Kevin L™🌵> That was a really good one. Hadn't seen it for a long time.
17:35:53 <LindaG> Not going to see much
17:36:59 <Frank> That's ok. It's my wake period and I know some casual gazer like having an OF time posted.
17:38:51 <LindaG> Frank, do you still live in wyoming
17:39:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Darn. Another bad Knight.
17:40:02 <LindaG> Watching the game huh?
17:40:14 <Frank> No, I live in Portland, OR.
17:40:30 <LindaG> Oh nice
17:41:01 <Frank> It used to be a nice small city. Too many out-of-towners moving in.
17:41:21 <LindaG> 🙁
17:41:54 <Frank> I agree Linda.
17:45:38 <LindaG> Where I live in southern New Jersey everyone is from northern New Jersey, including me
17:46:27 <Frank> I've never been back east. It is because of the smaller population or the weather/
17:46:28 <LindaG> Well good luck tonight
17:46:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Knight Linda
17:46:52 <Frank> Thanks Linda. I really appreciate you coming on for support.
17:47:47 <LindaG> 😊 a lot less people down here and I live close to ocean. Have a good night.
17:48:29 <Frank> :thumbsup:
18:28:53 <Frank> I think I see Grand erupting @ 20:28
18:34:43 <ynpvisitor13> I can believe it. Hard to tell with Old Faithful getting in the way so much.
18:36:12 <Frank> I can see better in this light.
18:37:28 <Frank> Glad there is electronic monitoring of Grand, Daisy & Castle. Time for Lion & BH, imo.
18:37:43 <Frank> Time for monitoring electronically
18:40:30 <ynpvisitor13> Beehive and Lion have the problem that the only effective places for a monitor are far off-trail.
18:43:05 <Frank> Ok, I understand. Do they have to read the electronic monitoring manually?
18:43:48 <ynpvisitor13> A ranger goes and checks the monitors during their rove around the basin.
18:45:07 <Frank> Thanks 13, I hadn't thought of that.
18:46:18 <ynpvisitor13> The YVO loggers at Norris have telemetry. But the connection seems to go out pretty often. We were delighted that Bill got the Echinus monitor back online recently.
18:46:52 <Frank> I'm glad they did too.
18:47:44 <Frank> I don't know Norris so much. I've walked down to SB platform. If I remember correctly isn't the terrain pretty steep in the basin?
18:47:55 <ynpvisitor13> I believe there are monitors on selected other features (perhaps including Lion and Beehive) that will be downloaded during the off-season.
18:48:40 <ynpvisitor13> Steamboat is definitely on the side of a hill.
18:50:08 <Frank> I remember that it's on a hill. As I kid we went to UGB because Sawmill was dad's favorite.
18:50:17 <Frank> One of mine too.
18:51:34 <ynpvisitor13> It's funny how much Sawmill was under-appreciated by gazers. So frequent, and it turned off the rarer geysers like Penta and Churn.
18:52:03 <ynpvisitor13> Someday when it reactivates, there will be a lot of cheering.
18:52:48 <Frank> Yes, there will be a lot of cheering. I was in denial for two months before I finally looked at the log.
18:53:20 <ynpvisitor13> By the way, I think it's fair to log Grand. Maybe with a question-mark since neither of us was 100% sure.
18:54:08 <ynpvisitor13> OF is easier to tell.
18:54:26 <Frank> Thanks, I will do that as a questionable. Thanks for the help.
18:55:14 <Frank> I can see the hill better tonight with the lower cloud cover, it helps me.
19:16:33 <Frank> Daisy eruption - 01 Feb 2019 @ 2035 ? wc - Changed to questionable because electronic time is closer to regular interval than mine.
19:29:46 <ynpvisitor13> There's an option to delete your entry if you just want to remove it.
19:30:31 <ynpvisitor13> Just looked at the GOSA replay. What you actually saw at 2035 was a 2-burst Grand.
19:30:58 <Frank> I do know that. Since I'm new, I like to present my question and have confirmation before deleting.
19:32:08 <Frank> Thanks for looking again. I will delete entry.
19:33:00 <Frank> Done & removed.
