04:20:52 <ynpvisitor86> Of
04:22:14 <Joe> morning Graham
04:22:42 <Joe> and STS and Linda
04:23:04 <STS - phone> Morning Joe and crew
04:23:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> morning. hopefully we will be able to see today .... snow prediction is slowing down now
04:24:25 <STS (Sam)> I hope so Graham. It’s good viewing right now
04:29:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am sure the snowcoach drivers will be happy, i bet its been a tough 2 weeks for them
04:30:05 <LindaG> Hi everyone! Looks promising out there, maybe a good viewing day.
04:36:01 <STS (Sam)> Steamboat within the next 24 hours if it follows the last two intervals
04:36:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> and hopefully sooner
04:37:08 <STS (Sam)> :)
05:09:47 <Joe> grand
05:09:59 <Joe> .
05:10:42 <Joe> i'll watch it my self
05:11:40 <KittyM*> I see it :)
05:11:56 <Joe> :)
05:12:00 <LindaG> That's a good start to the day!
05:12:11 <KittyM*> yes!
05:15:17 <Dave from B™> Joe, you have to share!
05:16:42 <Joe> ok DAVE
05:17:10 <Joe> 8min
05:17:28 <Dave from B™> Another 4" of snow in Blgs. Roads need to be plowed after last 2 nights.
05:19:27 <Joe> 10min
05:21:20 <Joe> 1b
05:32:48 <Kat> Looks nice out there this morning! :)
05:34:29 <Chip Silicon> Good morning all
05:37:19 <Joe> single transistor, or IC or?
05:37:33 <Dave from B™> By this time of year my attitude towards snow is very similar to Kevin's:)
05:38:37 <Joe> the snow has worn out its welcome
05:39:34 <Dave from B™> I miss my lawn
05:40:04 <Kat> You can come and cut mine!
05:40:06 <Joe> i miss even the weeds:)
05:40:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> snow still didnt reach the OF sign on VEC cam
05:40:21 <Kat> Got some of those too!
05:44:10 <Joe> of
05:44:11 <Kat> OF
05:45:36 <Joe> E times show an 4h 45 min Grand yesterday
05:46:36 <Dave from B™> I wonder if 0012 should be 0102
05:49:04 <Joe> could be a typo
05:49:54 <Casey> Morning
05:50:10 <Dave from B™> If not a typo, that is the shortest interval on Grand since Oct 28, 2007
05:51:00 <Dave from B™> Oct 28, 2007 had 2 short intervals: 4:23 and 3:37
05:51:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> they might be typos too
05:52:06 <Joe> call the VEC and see if RR wll check
05:52:21 <Casey> I'm guessing typo, but definitely wouldn't flag it. At least we have logger data to verify it against.
05:52:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> i bet it was an hour later .....
05:52:54 <Casey> That's my thought as well
05:53:05 <Dave from B™> One of the 2007 posts shows: "This is not a typo"
05:53:41 <Dave from B™> Anyone here know RR enough to talk to her? Kitt, are you here?
05:54:50 <ynpvisitor46> It could have happened. Grand can throw in random longs and shorts. Being an hour shorter than its current running average isnt unheard of.
05:55:56 <Dave from B™> But to be the lowest in 11.5 years makes me ask questions
05:56:18 <Chip Silicon> Nice color this morning
05:56:28 <Dave from B™> It's definitely possible but would like to be sure
06:03:22 <Dave from B™> Morning CraigC
06:03:35 <CraigC> hey Dave, how's it going?
06:06:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> intervals in 2007 were longer too, so I suspect while its in the VEC log (not a type in data entry) it deosnt show up in Ralphs electronic data (RTED)
06:08:18 <Dave from B™> one of the entries from Oct 28, 2007 is labeled RTED
06:08:59 <ynpvisitor46> " But to be the lowest in 11.5 years makes me ask questions" - Well, we're currently in an era where Steamboat and Giant regularly erupt on the same day, Steamboat is predictable, Morning was active, and Ear Spring erupted....
06:09:13 <ynpvisitor46> Its probably a typo, but not impossible at all either.
06:11:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> when Grand had its run of short intervals in 2012 (?) i dont think it ever went under 5h
06:11:09 <CraigC> my guess for SB is overnight tonight
06:11:11 <Casey> Anomalies happen, but the fact that other anomalies have happened this year (likely) doesn't have any bearing on the likelihood of an incredibly short Grand eruption.
06:11:28 <Casey> *Grand interval
06:12:52 <Kitt> I am awake now Dave
06:13:15 <Kitt> what is this short interval I am suppose to ask about
06:13:15 <Dave from B™> I'm sorry...did I awake you?
06:13:33 <Dave from B™> I figured you for an early riser, sorry
06:13:54 <Kitt> I am not a morning person, I am a geyser person
06:14:19 <Kitt> there for my alarm clock wakes me up early in Yellowstone
06:14:51 <Kitt> anyway what is the interval?
06:14:54 <Dave from B™> Yesterday Rebecca posted a Grant E time of 0012 which resulted in a interval of 4:45, the shortest in 11 years
06:18:08 <Chip Silicon> Grant = Grand, unless you are harrumphing
06:19:03 <Chip Silicon> What are the chances of a daytime Beehive today?
06:19:03 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Chip:)
06:19:37 <Chip Silicon> Yeah, I didn't think Grant was German for Grand
06:19:41 <Dave from B™> Re BH, considering it has been hiding for over 2 days is anyones guess
06:19:50 <Dave from B™> :D
06:20:19 <Kitt> It hasn't been beehive's fault about the snow
06:20:28 <STS (Sam)> Well speaking of Grand, could this be a 5 Grand day?
06:21:14 <STS (Sam)> If it goes around 5hr30min for the next three, it's possible!
06:21:54 <Dave from B™> Sam, that is a lot of ground to make up in the next 3 eruptions...not likely but possible
06:22:37 <STS (Sam)> Totally agree Dave
06:22:39 <Chip Silicon> Asked about BH because of its steaming
06:22:42 <LindaG> I have a feeling beehive went yesterday during g outage, just a feeling. 🌝
06:23:20 <Kat> I agree Linda...Bee has been puffing a little this morning.
06:23:24 <Dave from B™> Chip, you may be right then
06:24:11 <STS (Sam)> Looks like the basin had a very pretty sunrise this morning
06:24:19 <LindaG> Hey kat, but now who will get it, you or me? 😉
06:24:43 <Kat> You of course...Bee is like that!
06:24:51 <Kat> :)
06:24:57 <LindaG> Gardi er entrance looks great right now
06:26:37 <LindaG> I'll be happy if its in the daylight
06:27:00 <Kat> I want to go cross country skiing!
06:27:01 <STS (Sam)> Arch is pretty too
06:27:03 <Dave from B™> Linda, it is sunny at Gardiner
06:28:03 <LindaG> Yes looks pretty on cam
06:29:10 <LindaG> Hmmm dont see bubblers
06:30:12 <STS (Sam)> Maybe Lion?
06:30:30 <Kat> Nope - just steaming.
06:30:52 <Kat> Let's hope Sam
06:31:19 <LindaG> Castle should be doing something soon hopefully
06:31:39 <STS (Sam)> When I was awake last night, I saw OF at 1:38 and I thought I saw a Lion.
06:31:40 <Kat> All is calm right now! Let's get this party started!
06:31:46 <STS (Sam)> Wasn't sure though.
06:32:23 <STS (Sam)> I'm going back to watch the overnight captures now
06:33:33 <LindaG> STS I wonder if it was bee
06:35:07 <STS (Sam)> I'll let you know what I see :)
06:35:52 <Eric> marmot is having a big sale right now if anyone is looking for spring rain gear
06:35:57 <Eric> and good morning
06:36:03 <Kitt> Daisy
06:36:17 <Kitt> ie, since I am on delay
06:37:38 <LindaG> Looks like castle at 13:03 this morning, I started looking g at overnight too
06:38:14 <STS (Sam)> 22:00 is really foggy
06:39:47 <Kat> Step away for a second and the party starts without you!:)
06:39:56 <STS (Sam)> Yeah, looks like Castle at 1:03 am
06:42:04 <Dave from B™> Linda, what time for Castle?
06:43:34 <Joe> castle was steaming when i changed the cam to wide after midnight
06:44:20 <Kevin L™🌵> I could have used rain gear yesterday.
06:44:25 <STS (Sam)> Gusty winds at 1:55? Got really shaky
06:44:39 <Dave from B™> Kevin, how much did you get?
06:44:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Great comet (real comet) picture:
06:45:13 <ynpvisitor46> ^ <3
06:45:30 <Kevin L™🌵> We got over an inch in 12 hours. 7.5 inches is average for the year.
06:45:39 <Joe> the cam was on of preset until 0020
06:46:07 <Dave from B™> I didn't realive your annual was around 7.5. I wgfigured it was under 3-4 inches
06:46:41 <STS (Sam)> No Bee or Lion overnight that I saw.
06:46:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Most of it comes in July August with the monsoons.
06:47:08 <STS (Sam)> Looked to have been pretty windy overnight though.
06:47:25 <STS (Sam)> Unless something else was causing the shakiness
06:47:31 <Joe> castle probably started around 2300 when the cam was not on it
06:48:00 <Dave from B™> Couldn't be a bear this time of year
06:48:04 <LindaG> STS (Sam), I watched too at 13:55 something went off back there, but it was quick, I'm wondering if what you saw was NG
06:48:43 <Chip Silicon> Thanks for the comet link. It'd be nice to have another naked-eye comet soon.
06:49:12 <ynpvisitor11> do you mean 0135?
06:50:03 <STS (Sam)> Something was steaming starting at like 18:30 to the right of OF
06:50:49 <STS (Sam)> Looked to be in the area of Aurum
06:51:12 <Joe> which 1355?
06:53:48 <Joe> no aurum at `1830
06:54:27 <LindaG> Between 13:54 and 13:58ish there puffs out there by lion. They are quick hard to tell if lion.
06:54:55 <STS (Sam)> Yeah, I wasn't confident posting anything. But something was definitely steaming around 18:30
06:55:02 <Joe> again 1355?
06:55:34 <LindaG> On the overnight it was 1:55
06:56:39 <STS (Sam)> LindaG, I think that was N. Goggle
06:56:39 <Kat> Must be windy
06:56:54 <LindaG> I think so too because it's so quick
06:57:09 <ynpvisitor46> How will we know the weather when we are locked to the OF Inn masts? lol
06:57:32 <LindaG> I slowed it down a lot and it was still quick
06:58:05 <Joe> that was a puff from goggle springs
06:58:15 <STS (Sam)> Winds are 10 mph in the park Kat
06:58:17 <ynpvisitor11> are you saying 1355 instead of 0155
06:58:49 <LindaG> Yes it was 1:55am on the overnight gosa
06:59:34 <Dave from B™> Linda, so why do you keep saying 1355? That is confusing everyone:)
06:59:56 <Joe> that eas left of NG at goggle springs
07:00:10 <Joe> was*
07:00:10 <LindaG> I corrected above. Sorry.
07:02:59 <ynpvisitor11> do you mean 0135?
07:03:04 <Dave from B™> Thanks for clarifying
07:04:00 <Joe> snoblower ie
07:04:17 <Kat> :)
07:06:19 <ynpvisitor46> Dave: SB prediction?
07:06:20 <LindaG> ynpvisitor11, I think Sts mentioned 1:35 what I was looking at was 1:55
07:06:56 <Joe> I would put a ? on castle as it was steaming (allready in eruption when I moved the camera at 0020 to wide
07:07:06 <Dave from B™> 46, let me crank up the Commodore 64
07:09:06 <Dave from B™> SB prediction: Sat 2/16 0630 - Sun 2/17 0630
07:09:10 <Joe> dave that is easy sb (snoblower) about this time tomorrow:)
07:09:30 <Dave from B™> hahahahaha
07:09:40 <Kat> :lol:
07:10:09 <Dave from B™> My snowblower will be erupting at home at 1615
07:10:19 <Joe> :)
07:14:30 <ynpvisitor11> Glad you all double-check each other's times and compare with the capture. a 12 hour error would be noticed I hope
07:17:43 <Joe> it is nice to have the GOSA capture #11 makes it easy to check oneself
07:20:22 <ynpvisitor46> Dave, that window gets wider everytime ;)
07:23:59 <STS (Sam)> OF doing some nice steaming
07:24:12 <STS (Sam)> Preplay
07:24:32 <Joe> big
07:24:44 <Joe> :)
07:25:00 <Kat> Nice!!
07:25:04 <STS (Sam)> There we go
07:29:03 <Kat> Huge snowmobile line up at West!
07:29:52 <STS (Sam)> They're coming!!!
07:30:01 <STS (Sam)> I guess it is Friday
07:31:22 <Joe> no cars today :)
07:31:26 <Kat> Yep - should see some of them at OF later.
07:34:53 <Joe> today is MikeJ's challenge day " create a sentence using geyser names only" it has to make sense and more than a few words
07:40:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> dome
07:40:50 <Joe> nice
07:40:51 <LindaG> I was just about to post with ?
07:54:16 <Dave from B™> 46, SB is less predictable right now...besides I need to start being a little more accurate on my predictions!:)
07:55:18 <Kat> Linda, hope the sky lightens up for you and that you have a great afternoon!
07:55:53 <LindaGp> Thanks Kat. It does look omnious.
07:56:20 <Kat> It does...
07:56:25 <LindaGp> You have a good afternoon too! Beach weather?
07:57:15 <Kat> It's going to be about 76 but it's too windy for the beach!
07:57:28 <LindaG> Bummer
08:31:28 <ynpvisitor11> Dave from B™, why do you say Steamboat is less predictable right now?
08:33:14 <ynpvisitor104> I think Kevin gave bee the flu.
08:34:36 <Dave from B™> because there has been a variance of 4 days 13 hours when looking at the last 4 eruptnios
08:35:28 <Dave from B™> That's much greater than most of this eruptive episode
08:36:44 <ynpvisitor11> good problem to have
08:37:02 <Kevin L™🌵> I wouldn't trust Dave's predictions. Ask him when was the last time he saw it.
08:37:19 <Eric> If anyone is still trying to come up with a sentence that contains just geyser names...he is some help:
08:37:29 <Eric> A text list of all geyser names :-D
08:38:00 <LindaGp> Dome?
08:38:47 <Dave from B™> If you do a sentence it must include Pequito
08:39:28 <LindaGp> Yup
08:39:30 <Eric> haha...nice, learned something new today!
08:42:00 <STS (Sam)> I'm waiting for Lion
08:42:14 <Eric> Salt & Pepper
08:42:16 <LindaGp> Me too
08:44:44 <Chip Silicon> How many geyser names can be verbs? Link, Fountain, Cascade ...
08:45:14 <Eric> Yes, lot's of nouns in there :-D
08:46:36 <LindaGp> No bubblers
08:47:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Not even tiny bubbles?
08:47:05 <Eric> whistle, till
08:47:31 <Eric> slit, slurp
08:48:05 <Eric> pump
08:48:15 <LindaGp> Didn't see any
08:48:53 <STS (Sam)> Pump went?
08:49:13 <Eric>'s a geyser that is a verb :-D
08:49:41 <Eric> but it is probably going as well, graham reported it erupting about every 5 minutes a few weeks ago
08:50:03 <Chip Silicon> Some of those verbs require circumspection when employed in descriptive sentences.
08:50:04 <LindaGp> OF crowd is gathering
08:51:15 <Eric> here come the snow mobilers
08:51:24 <LindaGp> Maybe a OF lion duo
08:51:42 <STS (Sam)> Lol! I get confused Eric :)
08:53:04 <Casey> Most offensive geyser name verb: Mortar?
08:55:12 <LindaGp> OF ie
08:56:17 <STS (Sam)> Logged at 10:54
08:56:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Mortar is offensive? I like mortars.
08:57:17 <Chip Silicon> You think "mortar" is offensive as a verb? Maybe if you're getting plastered :-}
08:59:02 <Casey> I have a strange feeling Mortar geyser isn't named after the masonry material.
08:59:27 <Casey> Or a mortar and pestle
08:59:52 <Chip Silicon> I think from that era had to be the cannon/weapon.
08:59:55 <Kevin L™🌵> A mortar can be defensive too.
09:00:11 <Casey> The best defense is a good offense?
09:00:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Very true.
09:01:02 <Kevin L™🌵> My son has a mortar that shoots coke cans. It is pretty fun.
09:01:38 <Casey> Let's be honest, weaponry is a subject that offends many. I'll stand by my statement (, but agree it is not offensive to many or even most).
09:01:52 <Chip Silicon> Mortars are used in pretty destructive ways, I see that.
09:02:32 <Chip Silicon> But in terms of offensive, you don't want to see me slurp my soup :lol::lol:
09:02:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Well I am an old artillery man...
09:02:57 <Casey> If "Chinese Spring" is a verb, I would like to change my answer.
09:03:14 <Chip Silicon> I am laughing now.
09:04:03 <Chip Silicon> You realize that composing a sentence with geyser names is going to occupy much of my weekend. 0=
09:04:41 <Eric> You are welcome :-D
09:04:42 <Kevin L™🌵> I have a Chinese spring in my drill press. Mailed it to me straight from the factory.
09:05:43 <Casey> I'm looking through Scott's book now. There are a ton of names that can be verbs.
09:06:05 <Eric> You have to look at that list I linked earlier...those are the names you have to use :-D
09:06:21 <Eric> Unless you can convince will to add the geyser to GT :-D
09:07:23 <ynpvisitor11> the underlining of of may drive me crazy
09:07:58 <Eric> Yes...I have been thinking more about that 11
09:08:16 <Casey> And you must match entire strings (not just single words)?
09:08:16 <Eric> I might exclude of when not capitalized.
09:08:43 <Casey> Unless of course the entire string is a single word
09:08:55 <ynpvisitor11> interesting it didn't underline when repeated of of of
09:09:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Faisy
09:09:17 <ynpvisitor11> haha every other one of of of of of of
09:09:19 <LindaGp> daisy
09:10:07 <Eric> Hmmm, apparently my regular expression has a bug :-P
09:10:15 <Eric> or a feature.
09:10:49 <Casey> Infant spume
09:14:01 <Eric> Infant white spume fireball
09:14:40 <Dave from B™> Eric, can you link OF and not of?
09:15:20 <Eric> Nifty island of splendid turtle
09:15:24 <Casey> Splendid pyramid, monarch. Excelsior!
09:15:34 <Eric> :-D
09:15:58 <Eric> I could dave...but it would really make a complete sentence harder :-P
09:16:57 <Casey> We have any news writers here? Inverted pyramid.
09:17:14 <Dave from B™> After this exercise in futility I will have another question? Which song uses the most geyser words?
09:17:24 <Kevin L™🌵> You would misspell it anyway Dave.
09:18:03 <Dave from B™> haha Kevin
09:18:23 <ynpvisitor11> I think nifty island of splendid turtle is um a stretch
09:18:33 <Casey> Another potential verb... catfish
09:19:19 <Casey> Gemini twin
09:19:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Isn't that redundant?
09:19:41 <Casey> Ok Casey... step away from the keyboard
09:20:27 <ynpvisitor11> good one Kevin
09:20:38 <Casey> Redundant? I say thorough.
09:21:59 <Casey> Ok. I guess I should get some work done. I'm going to (try to) ignore this window for a while. Make lots of noise if something exciting happens.
09:22:42 <Kevin L™🌵> We will set off a mortar.
09:23:11 <Casey> That should do
09:23:24 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
09:30:00 <LindaGp> Sun!
09:47:12 <LindaGp> Well so much for sun ☹
09:47:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Graham chased it away
09:48:51 <Kat> OMG it's snowing again!
09:49:11 <LindaGp> Yup🙄
09:49:34 <LindaGp> Sun was out for 5 min
09:52:42 <Kat> Time for me to get outside and enjoy the sun!
09:54:44 <LindaGp> Soak up some rays for me. Enjoy
10:02:41 <Dave from B™> Makes you want to curl up by the fireplace and read a good book
10:03:29 <LindaGp> With some hot cocoa
10:05:32 <Dave from B™> Not my beverage of choice but in this case it works!!
10:06:35 <LindaGp> How about sambucca in coffee?
10:12:36 <Indigo> Tuaca and hot apple cider
10:13:23 <LindaGp> 😊
10:15:35 <Indigo> Blue sky in West with clouds on the horizons
10:16:30 <LindaGp> Well get a break hopefully
10:17:45 <Indigo> Not wearing a coat either. Warm. For West anyway.
10:23:53 <Eric> Should you be out breaking snow plows?
10:24:10 <Eric> :-D
10:25:38 <Eric> Guess Indigo went outside.
10:26:08 <Eric> Is snowing...but you can see the brightness through the clouds. Don't think this storm is going to last long.
10:26:39 <LindaGp> Hopefully just passing thru
10:28:37 <LindaGp> OF ie
10:32:43 <Dave from B™> Eric, has your snow melted yet?
10:35:46 <ynpvisitor9> Dave, does Billings have snow?
10:37:10 <LindaGp> Anyone see water?
10:37:13 <Dave from B™> Really?
10:37:27 <Dave from B™> It's so white I need to wear 2 pairs of sunglasses
10:37:40 <Dave from B™> 8" over last 2 days
10:37:43 <ynpvisitor9> so that's a yes?
10:37:50 <Dave from B™> YES:)
10:37:55 <ynpvisitor9> finally, you have not had much snow this season
10:38:26 <Dave from B™> We had no winter until the last 2-3 weeks and now it won't go away
10:38:46 <ynpvisitor9> amazing how annoying it can be
10:39:07 <Dave from B™> Even the dogs have cabin fever
10:39:18 <LindaGp> Riverside?
10:39:35 <Joe> yes
10:39:45 <LindaGp> Ok
10:39:59 <ynpvisitor9> hey, we may get to see Grand
10:41:03 <ynpvisitor9> wow, there was a 4 hr 45m Grand??
10:41:09 <ynpvisitor9> that is a short interval
10:41:11 <Eric> Meh, we almost didn't get any Dave...pdx missed the snow other than a couple inches
10:41:30 <ynpvisitor9> be glad, Portland is a mess in the snow
10:42:23 <ynpvisitor9> I wonder how long it has been since Grand did that short of an interval?
10:42:36 <Joe> 2007
10:42:42 <ynpvisitor9> thanks Joe
10:42:51 <ynpvisitor9> I guess you guys have already discussed this
10:43:00 <Eric> Ha...I was prepared to stay off the road for a week...but real snow :-(
10:43:13 <LindaGp> Looks like maybe GROTTO too
10:43:19 <Joe> yep Dave got the info for us
10:43:44 <Eric> Creeping up on the SB interval
10:44:07 <Eric> early tomorrow morning I guess
10:44:58 <Dave from B™> I do have a gazer checking with Rebecca to make sure that Grand E time is correct
10:45:01 <ynpvisitor9> nah, it will keep the FB GG people worrying, 2 more days...
10:45:10 <Dave from B™> haha 9
10:45:23 <ynpvisitor9> you have a gazer there Dave?
10:45:31 <Dave from B™> I can't believe the next will be #6 for this year already
10:46:04 <Dave from B™> No, I know a gazer who has a good relationship with her
10:46:05 <ynpvisitor9> the Beverlys are coming back to Norris, so we will have good reports again
10:46:20 <Dave from B™> 9, I didn't know that. Thanks for the news
10:46:47 <Eric> Yep, I heard Bill is back!
10:47:20 <Joe> castle is getting close
10:47:38 <LindaGp> Yup
10:47:48 <ynpvisitor9> looking at the Grand times, that time could be a typo
10:48:00 <LindaGp> Trying to keep castle grand and lion in view
10:48:19 <ynpvisitor9> the next one was 6 hr 53, so...could be a missed entry
10:49:33 <ynpvisitor9> and mystery Bee...
10:49:54 <Eric> I would guess typo 9
10:50:16 <Eric> intervals seem to regular to have those 2 be off by almost exactly an hour
10:51:22 <LindaGp> Castle i
10:54:30 <Joe> just talked with the VEC they are goingt double check the grand e time
10:56:34 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Joe.

11:36:23 <Dave from B™> Graham, are you playing hooky again?
11:42:50 <Joe> LINDA would you change your 0102 castle to a major to see if castle will predict, you can change it back when/if GT predicts castle
11:43:49 <LindaGp> Ok
11:45:33 <Dave from B™> Linda, did you get married? You have a new letter at the end of your name?:)
11:45:33 <Joe> got it
11:45:38 <LindaGp> Bubblers

11:47:41 <Dave from B™> hardly working?
11:48:06 <LindaGp> Bubblers are encouraging
11:48:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> pretty much
11:48:26 <Joe> thanks Linda
11:48:48 <LindaGp> Yup should I leave it like That?
11:49:42 <Joe> i would put it hte way you had it before
11:49:55 <LindaGp> Ok
11:50:49 <Joe> we have to lie to gt to get it to predict sometimes,
11:51:57 <LindaGp> Bad weather rolling in
11:52:40 <STS (Sam)> Any sign of Lion?
11:52:49 <LindaGp> No not yet
11:53:00 <STS (Sam)> Hurumph
11:53:35 <LindaGp> Bee is ramping up hope it waits
11:54:14 <STS (Sam)> OF is steaming pretty goof
11:54:16 <STS (Sam)> good*
11:54:43 <LindaGp> Things are happening ☺
11:55:10 <LindaGp> OF ie

12:10:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> Linda, what about SB?
12:10:46 <LindaGp> Ah yes can't forget SB 😊 my bad
12:11:36 <ynpvisitor94> If we can not see it, it does not count
12:11:39 <Dave from B™> That's tomorrow Graham

12:15:45 <LindaGp> Depression?
12:16:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like it might be
12:16:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Either that or a big push
12:17:43 <Joe> hey! just got a call from VEC grand time was 0112 on the 14th they will correct gt when they get time
12:18:24 <Dave from B™> Thanks Joe!
12:18:32 <ynpvisitor9> that makes a lot more sense
12:18:33 <Joe> yw
12:18:37 <Dave from B™> See, it does pat to question things once in awhile
12:18:43 <Dave from B™> pay*
12:18:44 <Joe> yes
12:19:04 <ynpvisitor9> The VEC is always great about correcting errors
12:19:12 <Joe> it was very nice that they called back
12:19:26 <Dave from B™> The VEC does a great job. I'm glad it's not me out there collecting data in the cold
12:24:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> RR entered a new Grand time, so order is restored
12:26:49 <Dave from B™> In case you were wondering the shortest Grand intervals during the 2012 was 5h0m and it happened 3 times in the fall
12:29:46 <Dave from B™> I know Graham remembers but beginning Labor Day weekend, Grand had around 80 or so consecutive intervals under 6 hours.
12:29:49 <LindaGp> Yokes a watched geyser never erupts
12:29:59 <LindaGp> *yikes
12:30:11 <Dave from B™> last post was referring to 2012
12:31:42 <Joe> Dave thanks for the info
12:36:27 <Dave from B™> I hope this link makes it. Look how abruptly intervals change and then see who posted the first of the 80 or so consecutive on Sept 1:)
12:36:40 <Dave from B™>
12:36:54 <Dave from B™> sort by date if that doesn't come to you sorted
12:41:23 <Joe> how about that, someone that goes by Dave Smith :)
12:42:16 <Dave from B™> haha
12:42:35 <Dave from B™> notice how early in the morning it was:)
12:43:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> i remember that series of short Grand intervals in 2012 and saw 5 one day ..... 10 busts too, so the burst count didn't suffer
12:44:30 <Dave from B™> That was a fun fall
12:45:04 <Joe> 0600
12:46:30 <Eric> ok...back, BHI can go now
12:46:45 <Dave from B™> We tried to catch 5 that day but weather turned bad in the afternoon. I also caught the first one at 0041 and Graham caught the last one of the day
12:46:57 <Joe> its about time :)
12:47:09 <LindaGp> Eric, I hope it heard you
12:49:19 <Kevin L™🌵> 1530 for BH
12:49:57 <LindaGp> 15:15 bh
13:00:10 <Joe> time again for a nap, enjoy the geysers
13:00:24 <LindaGp> Enjoy
13:00:31 <Kevin L™🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
13:01:20 <Dave from B™> Bye Joe
13:06:56 <Dave from B™> Eric, how's the hammy doing?
13:08:39 <Dave from B™> ..
13:15:00 <Eric> Hammy is better, but still sore :-( I have moved to an every other day leg workout to try and give it more recovery time.
13:15:11 <Eric> It hurts my knee and butt.
13:15:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Needs cheese
13:16:15 <Dave from B™> Its hard to stay fit when things ache. Keep up the good work. my wife and I have each lost between 10-15 pounds.
13:16:24 <LindaGp> Well it wasn't 5:15 🙁
13:16:28 <Dave from B™> Still more work to be done
13:16:29 <Eric> Nice!
13:17:00 <Dave from B™> About 5 more # and I'll be able to get into all my shorts for Maui:)
13:17:27 <Eric> Well done...I have had to buy mostly new clothes due to 3 size drops.
13:17:48 <Eric> Hard to keep on pants that are 3 sizes too large :-P
13:17:54 <Eric> even with a belt
13:17:57 <Dave from B™> I'm beginning to think I may actually reach my 25# goal
13:18:09 <Dave from B™> haha Eric. Yes, it is
13:18:38 <LindaGp> Oh wish I had that problem
13:18:52 <Dave from B™> My only concern is how long I'll be down for my surgery and then how much fun I have eating in Maui
13:19:09 <Eric> Yep, good food is very problematic
13:19:23 <Dave from B™> My wife and I are hoping to walk 70 miles in our 7 day maui trip
13:19:38 <Eric> Nice! what end of the island are you staying on?
13:20:06 <Dave from B™> Kahana, between Lahaina and Kapalua
13:20:39 <Eric> Nice...I love that location and I have some good recommendations for you if you haven't stayed there before
13:21:19 <Dave from B™> We have our room already but I'm open to food, beach and activity ideas
13:24:54 <LindaGp> OF ie

13:37:05 <LindaGp> I'll have to wish the next campop good lucknsoon
13:38:17 <LindaGp> Safe to say this is an ini?
13:39:48 <Michael> Crud. My timing could have been better. And yes, if it's been going 8 minutes it's an initial.
13:40:11 <LindaGp> Yea I entered as that
13:40:31 <LindaGp> Beehive is holding out.
13:47:08 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
13:47:32 <Eric> Dave is should go in about 5 minutes :-P
13:47:33 <LindaGp> Good night
13:47:46 <Dave from B™> It will ding in my pocket:)
13:47:50 <Eric> Yep
13:47:56 <Eric> It knows!
13:48:03 <LindaGp> 😊
13:50:39 <LindaGp> Dang I've been waiting 6 hours for this thing
13:55:53 <Kat> IS your shift over Linda?
13:56:26 <LindaGp> It will be at 6pm garybhasnt taken yet
13:56:44 <Eric> I have been waiting my entire life!
13:56:56 <Casey> Are we there yet?
13:57:06 <Eric> Mortar!
13:57:16 <LindaGp> I Think we are close
13:57:31 <Eric> I was trying to scare BHI into action.
13:57:32 <Casey> How long have you been waiting to say that, Eric?
13:57:38 <Eric> All day!
13:57:49 <LindaGp> Me too!
13:58:02 <Eric> It didn't work :-(
13:58:32 <LindaGp> Who broke bee?
13:58:38 <Eric> Sorry...Casey :-(
13:58:42 <Kat> If he doesn't grab the cam let me know and I'll take it.
13:58:57 <Kat> You've had a great day Linda!!
13:59:11 <LindaGp> Ok, I'd like to do bee since I've been waiting 6 hours
13:59:43 <LindaGp> But I'm starting to fade, a few more minutes
14:00:22 <LindaGp> Kat everything erupted except for Bee! It was a good day.
14:01:12 <Michael> Whle we're waiting on Beehive, can you go to a wide view and check for Daisy?
14:01:25 <Kat> See, told you would get it.
14:01:47 <LindaGp> Kat,I give you can take it, I'll watch
14:02:45 <LindaGp> Ok?
14:02:57 <Kat> Should we give him a few more minutes?
14:03:08 <Michael> Thanks. Guess it's a bit gray out these.
14:03:09 <LindaGp> Ok
14:04:06 <Kat> Are you still on?
14:05:08 <LindaGp> I just exited.
14:05:19 <LindaGp> Is that you or gary

14:05:46 <Kat> Must be Gary - hey Gary!

14:09:33 <LindaG> Look at all that steam🌝
14:09:55 <LindaG> Now gone
14:10:04 <Michael> I see big white flakes of steam everywhere!
14:14:08 <LindaG> Oh wow we may not see it go, it's a cruel world
14:15:44 <Kat> It can be...AHHHHHH!
14:20:50 <LindaG> Well have a good night cant stare at the screen anymore
14:29:47 <Eric> uggg....bad weather :-(
14:30:16 <Eric> Maybe Old Faithful sign will be gone in the morning
14:33:05 <Michael> Radar looks like the snow should pass through. But in the meantime, I'll take up another hobby for a little while.
14:46:30 <Michael> Lion ie
14:55:52 <ynpvisitor90> We need geyser detecting radar.
14:56:49 <Michael> That's what the infra-red camera is for, I think. :)
15:00:57 <ynpvisitor60> Clearing up a bit!
15:01:33 <Eric> IR camera would be pretty cool...we would be able to see right through the fog
15:01:49 <Eric> But hot sunny days it wouldn't be so great.
15:02:12 <ynpvisitor60> Thin plume of steam behind of on static
15:02:29 <ynpvisitor60> Gone now
15:05:34 <Michael> OF ie
15:10:32 <ynpvisitor9> BH watch a bit tougher in these conditions
15:20:52 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
15:34:55 <KittyM*> Oh, NOW we can see again
15:41:37 <ynpvisitor113> So I leave and you guys fog up the view?
15:41:57 <Eric> Too much heavy breathing
15:42:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> its clear now
15:42:43 <ynpvisitor113> Haha
15:43:29 <Eric> I am stoked...just got new rain jacket and pants for my spring trip.

15:46:27 <KittyM*> We had a bobcat in our yard last night and we got videos on our outdoor cameras

17:28:21 <Michael> Thought we would get more, but oh well.
18:13:41 <Michael> Old Faithful
18:47:41 <ynpvisitor11> Steamboat at 7 days. :)
18:49:01 <Michael> I'll be happy if it doesn't make it to 8.
18:50:35 <ynpvisitor11> anything under 2 weeks is fine with me :)
18:51:51 <Michael> That's a good way to look at it. I shouldn't get greedy with short intervals.
18:52:15 <Michael> For most of my life, anything under a year would have been wonderful.
18:53:05 <ynpvisitor11> I know I was excited with the 35 day interval last spring!
19:22:24 <Michael> Daisy ie
19:44:08 <Michael> OF
20:21:04 <Michael> Beehive!!

20:21:17 <ynpvisitor27> :)
20:22:01 <ynpvisitor27> Looked like there may have been an Indy too.
20:22:42 <Michael> I'll leave that to the experts. It caught me by surprise in any case.
20:23:35 <ynpvisitor27> Nice surprise
