04:43:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> SB just went beyond the 3 recent intervals ....... it's broken!
04:44:06 <LindaG> ⛱☹
04:44:36 <LindaG> Not sure where the first icon came from.
04:45:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> not sure i could say the 0912 time for Giant was ns given the visibility was so bad...maybe an ie time?
04:45:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> but its close enogh
04:45:31 <LindaG> That sounds better
04:46:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> hopefully Joe can add some comments like I had put on it to counter the note
04:47:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> Kristines note makes it sound like an eruption didnt happen but the rangers confirmed it
04:48:36 <LindaG> I think that's why everyone was confused yesterday afternoon
04:48:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes. when i sw her photo i realized it had erupted
04:49:20 <LindaG> Morning craig
04:49:28 <CraigC> hey Linda :)
04:49:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha...good for you Craig
04:49:38 <CraigC> morning, Graham
04:50:00 <CraigC> being naive and ignorant protects against confusion pretty well
04:50:23 <LindaG> Craig got another film for you on Netflix, MOUNTAIN
04:51:19 <LindaG> It's hard when it's that cold because everything looks so big anyway
04:51:27 <CraigC> is it with Willem Dafoe narrating?
04:51:50 <LindaG> Yes
04:53:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> just replayed Joes video ... it does look like a bigger ush at that time......
04:53:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> push
04:54:05 <LindaG> At 9:12?
04:54:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes but its still hard to tell if that ush apears because visibility is increasing or its new steam plume
04:54:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> i guess i dont like p today
04:55:40 <LindaG> It happens 😉
04:56:16 <CraigC> ok, added it to my list
04:57:08 <LindaG> It is kind of artsy, put Hubble to sleep, but it was well done
04:58:46 <LindaG> *hubbie
05:02:30 <Joe> Graham I felt giant was ns but based on the height of the plume seen in fog it was probably well ie at 0912, I was not sure ie or ns,
05:04:35 <Joe> I can change it to ie or delete it altogether but I also fell the 0920 was well ie
05:04:51 <Joe> feel*
05:05:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> i would at least like you to add some comment like I had on my entry tht confirms it erupted
05:06:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> thhats more important to me thn trying to figure out when it started
05:06:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> Kristine's note is confusing without an extra note on the Giant eruption time
05:06:57 <Joe> yes, i stole your comment and put it in mine
05:07:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks
05:08:22 <Joe> I think the logger will show an even earlier start time
05:11:56 <Joe> I have mixed feelings as to the fixing of the signs not to roll.
05:14:12 <LindaG> Watched Joe's video. Looks to me like between 9:12 and 9:13 it was at its height, later as fog clears I thi it's not as high.
05:14:30 <LindaG> *Think
05:15:49 <Joe> when they move the cam we will be dependent on the loggers as the view of down basin eruptions will be hit or miss
05:17:46 <Joe> but we will see more Aurums, Anemones and DOMES
05:19:00 <LindaG> Good morning joe
05:19:20 <Joe> my one handed typing and caps leave a lot to be desired
05:19:32 <Joe> hi Linda
05:19:51 <LindaG> Better than my two handed
05:20:11 <Joe> :)
05:20:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> will be interesting to see the field of view we get. i dont think Aurum and OF will be in the same view
05:21:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> the VEC cam barely has them now and from the Inn the view would have to be ore to the right
05:21:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> more
05:21:35 <LindaG> I'll miss the daisy tree
05:22:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> we will get some more line-up pints i bet
05:22:42 <Joe> I'm not sure what the view will be, for now i can only go by pics i have seen from the top of the Inn
05:23:55 <LindaG> But won't it be more like looking down instead of a level view, will take getting used to
05:25:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes it will Linda. still have a good view of the distant features. people won't be waving much tho
05:25:45 <Joe> we cam ops are going to have to develop a sense of when some of the geysers will erupt, it will be tough for me
05:27:31 <LindaG> Should be interesting, sort of like a mole in the hole game 🌝
05:27:52 <LindaG> OF ie
05:28:16 <Joe> yes i was thinking whack-a-mole
05:28:33 <LindaG> Yup
05:40:45 <Kat> Good morning - warmer this morning!:)
05:55:33 <Joe> hi Kat warmer in YNP than Thermopolis -3 now
06:06:30 <LindaG> Hi kat!
06:09:29 <ynpvisitor96> Daisy
06:16:04 <ynpvisitor26> Any recommendations for a new walkie talkie? Afraid my old one is terminal.
06:16:34 <CraigC> YNM went down, ughhhh
06:17:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> bad day for that to happen .. hopefully its a short outage
06:30:23 <Kitt> gosh Joe it is 9+here
06:36:55 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
06:37:32 <CraigC> hey Dave, how's it going
06:38:05 <Kat> Hey Joe - stepped away fro some pancakes!
06:38:47 <Kat> So what happened to the Giant entry yesterday? Just curious.
06:42:35 <Joe> Kitt verified it from rangers and photos
06:43:35 <Dave from B™> Kat, there was some confusion about whether it erupted at first since a GT note confused everyone
06:45:42 <Joe> hi Dave, Craig and others
06:46:11 <Kat> It did erupt right?... based on pics from visitors in the basin. It's flagged on my entries and reentered by Graham I believe.
06:46:17 <CraigC> howdy, Joe!
06:46:27 <Kat> Hey Joe!
06:46:57 <Kat> Here come the west snowmobiles!
06:47:23 <Dave from B™> Yeah, it was flagged when we misinterpreted the GT note. When we realized it actually did erupt, Graham reentered it.
06:47:40 <Kat> Glad it was documented!
06:48:01 <Kat> Thanks Dave!
06:48:05 <Joe> i think Casey flagged it, i would delete it to clear the flag and reenter it
06:48:20 <CraigC> can Casey remove the flag?
06:49:22 <Joe> if he comes on and removes it, yes
06:52:07 <Dave from B™> Yeah, I got a SB prediction right:)
06:52:09 <Joe> if it was flag deleted by two people then it is gone and will have to be reentered
06:52:29 <Kat> I can't remove it. Lets see if Casey can.
06:53:25 <Joe> did SBerupt Dave?
06:54:13 <Dave from B™> I said it wouldn't erupt between 0356 and 0629 this morning.:)
06:54:27 <CraigC> LOL
06:54:38 <Joe> :0
06:54:40 <Dave from B™> :D
06:55:11 <CraigC> Joe, so if the quickest and simplest solution is to re-enter it, then I agree with that
06:56:48 <Kat> It's already entered, was just wondering if the flag can be removed from my entries. Eric might be able to help too.
06:56:57 <Joe> yes, I do not see Kat's entry at all, flag or not so it is gone, Iwould reenter it
06:59:02 <Joe> all i see is the flag deleted #1 in Kat's profile, i don't know who removes those
06:59:28 <STS (Sam)> Morning all
06:59:58 <CraigC> hey Sam
07:00:07 <Joe> hi Sam
07:01:15 <Kat> It's still on my profile page under the entries I've made. It is no longer under secondary posts.
07:02:32 <Dave from B™> Kat, is it possible for you to reenter it with a NEW entry?
07:03:02 <Joe> yes, I dont know who removes those since two people had to flag it to make the entry disappear
07:03:46 <ynpvisitor3> can a flag be flagged?
07:04:27 <Joe> yes, then the entry goes away
07:05:41 <Joe> oh, you meant the actual flag, i do not know that
07:06:25 <Joe> that was for ynp3
07:07:28 <Joe> of
07:07:48 <LindaG> Nice
07:08:25 <LindaG> Wow there goes visibility in the basin
07:08:27 <STS (Sam)> Steamy
07:09:00 <ynpvisitor35> Kat maybe refresh your page - it may be gone
07:13:14 <Kat> Not sure how important it is really. I would propose that entries (since they are voluntary and often made with input from other wc viewers) not be flagged without definitive, verified info, like loggers, in basin observers, pics etc. Just my thoughts.
07:13:35 <Kat> :) It's all good!
07:15:05 <CraigC> Isn't it workign pretty well, though... people communicate, and add and change for accuracy?
07:15:38 <Joe> an example is, two of us could flag the 1148 note and it would go away and show in Gary Novak's profile as a flag deleted note
07:18:14 <Joe> entry's should only be flagged if they are wrong like posting BH when they actually saw lion
07:18:43 <Eric> Morning
07:19:13 <Ryan> Where?
07:19:15 <Eric> People shouldn't be flagging stuff unless they know for sure there is an error in it. They should only be adding comments if they have concerns IMHO.
07:19:23 <Ryan> ^^ That
07:19:23 <ynpvisitor35> at the time, I think the flaggers _did_ think it was wrong, is that what happened?
07:19:26 <Eric> Right here in the PNW Ryan :-D
07:19:37 <Ryan> OH I thought you meant the geyser! ;)
07:19:41 <Joe> but before the second flag the poster should be given the opportunity to correct it
07:19:55 <Ryan> ^^ Also that
07:20:03 <CraigC> hey Eric and Ryan
07:20:16 <Ryan> I have had people double flag entries of mine specifically because they have a grudge against me - and the entry was correct, no less.
07:20:18 <Ryan> Harumph
07:20:54 <CraigC> Ryan, so stop being so punchy LOL
07:21:10 <Joe> :)
07:21:16 <Eric> Meh, if a poster has a concern about their post being flagged, just hit webmaster@geysertimes.org with an email and an admin will sort it out.
07:22:02 <Ryan> Joe, its been a while ahah
07:22:04 <Eric> Sometimes information conflicts.
07:22:10 <STS (Sam)> I have 6 deleted flagged entries from when I didn't know what I was doing when I first joined haha
07:22:30 <STS (Sam)> If I'm unsure, I just leave it to a more experienced gazer :)
07:22:53 <Ryan> It was a time when I was in the park and had the unfortunate experience of seeing three uncommon and one rare geyser event. No one really knew me and thought that the entries were false.
07:22:55 <Dave from B™> Yeah....no one likes their entries deleted. It's not really that big of a deal IF it is done with good intentions.
07:23:10 <Kat> OK, I brought this up - we can let it go, I'm not the only person who has been flagged LOL.... it is what it is.
07:23:13 <Joe> Sam i have 4 deleted for the same reason
07:23:47 <STS (Sam)> Kat, you're right. Not a big deal :)
07:23:48 <Dave from B™> Ryan, no one really believed your Excelsior post anyway!:D:D
07:24:13 <CraigC> is there a way on GT to message the person from the entry? I'm still trying to learn my around ti
07:24:13 <Kat> :) Sam
07:24:15 <CraigC> it
07:24:24 <Ryan> Wc entries are pretty benign for the most part. And flagging them is pretty obvious. Mine were things like: a Link minor-major, a Kaliedoscope Series, Lakeshore Geyser, and a South Grotto Fountain series.
07:24:43 <Ryan> All were later confirmed but several got double flagged and removed almost instantly
07:25:31 <Ryan> Dave, I dont remember an Excelsior post - but it wouldnt shock me. I have been dumb enough in the past to do stuff like that.
07:25:45 <Dave from B™> Was just trying to be funny
07:26:04 <Ryan> I do remember a guide seeing Excelsior doing large boils and bursting in 2014. The Sputs all drove over - you could hear them in the dark.
07:26:10 <Kat> Guess it bothered me some because it was GIANT! But it's fine, we saw it! That's what really matters - we share this passion for geysers!
07:26:20 <CraigC> Dave from B™, don't give up, keep trying ;)
07:26:41 <Dave from B™> haha Craig. I'm pound to hit the target once in awhile
07:27:02 <CraigC> I hope I am there to see it
07:27:08 <Dave from B™> bound*
07:27:21 <ynpvisitor35> I think there is something in the perceived need for immediacy that gets things flagged
07:27:27 <ynpvisitor35> or even the need to post things asap even if not sure
07:28:06 <Ryan> I brought up a percieved need for immediacy yesterday and sparked a flame war for thirty minutes... :D
07:28:09 <CraigC> ynpvisitor35, probably the excitement, no?
07:28:43 <CraigC> by nature people like to share their experience of what they observed, right?
07:28:56 <Ryan> Ignore me, I am still punchy :laugh:
07:28:59 <Ryan> :lol:
07:29:37 <Joe> I held off posting my 0912 giant for many hours as i needed some confirmation first
07:29:45 <CraigC> Ryan, what time, so I can go back and read it and then come back and flame something?
07:30:37 <Ryan> I cant remember.
07:30:41 <Ryan> Sometime right after Giant
07:30:47 <Ryan> it about about texting Hot Periods.
07:30:50 <Dave from B™> I understand the need to be the poster but in the end the most important thing is accurate information....not who posted it.
07:31:11 <Ryan> ^^Exactly, Dave. 100% agree
07:31:45 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:31:53 <Kat> True Dave!
07:32:08 <Dave from B™> And, now I'm going to open a can of worms.....
07:32:16 <Eric> Yes...but one thing that does bug me is if I am waiting at a geyser all day, call it on the radio when it's about to erupt, others show up and then get primary entry when it erupts....that always stings a little.
07:32:21 <CraigC> :i::i:
07:32:29 <Joe> 99% of the time if i'm sure i post, the other 1% i wait
07:32:34 <Kevin L™🌵> From a fish man a can full of worms seems logical.
07:33:49 <Ryan> Eric, thats fair.
07:33:50 <Dave from B™> While in the field, I've heard on more than 1 occasion that some peoples entries here are often questioned. So, please put a ? on entries if you are not sure.
07:34:28 <Joe> the other 1% has caused me to be flag deleted :)
07:34:38 <Eric> haha Joe
07:34:48 <ynpvisitor35> that would be helpful if in the basin - to not assume something erupted Dave from B™,
07:35:04 <Dave from B™> Exactly, 35
07:35:20 <ynpvisitor35> think of it as being a help to those in the basin, but not the end all
07:36:03 <Ryan> ^Also that, but in the other order too
07:36:27 <ynpvisitor35> exactly
07:36:52 <Dave from B™> That's why we are a COMMUNITY
07:38:12 <Dave from B™> What a time for the seismo to go offline
07:39:14 <Ryan> Oh, I lost my prediction, damn
07:39:57 <CraigC> Ryan, I read the dialogue from yesterday.... kinda funny, and I won't say any more :)
07:40:06 <Dave from B™> Overnight WC posts are a TREMENDOUS help when you are at OF
07:40:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Or a camop
07:40:46 <Ryan> ^Yes, to all of that!
07:41:52 <Joe> when i'm in basin the first thing upon waking is to check gt to plan my day
07:42:19 <CraigC> ditto
07:42:36 <CraigC> this year I need to get a phone plan that gets service
07:43:02 <Dave from B™> VERIZON
07:43:54 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:44:15 <Joe> your local verizon dealer always has deals on phones i got mine for $35 and $40 for the month
07:44:44 <Joe> 77 and change out the door
07:44:58 <CraigC> thanks
07:46:06 <Dave from B™> No matter what phone you have, posting between 0900 and 2000 is tough on most summer days
07:46:37 <Joe> i bought a second month when i needed it, and now i have the phone to use this sunner at $40 amonth as needed
07:47:04 <Joe> summer*
07:48:47 <Joe> i was able to use gt for posting anytime, to use the chat not so much
07:51:02 <Joe> for some reason gt would not let me post tilts baby in basin at all
07:54:22 <Dave from B™> Joe, I think that was a glitch. I remember that last year as well. I think it has been fixed
07:54:46 <Dave from B™> Wow. That was a lot of thinking for 1 sentence
07:56:21 <Joe> :)
07:59:15 <Dave from B™> So, I can't remember, can the seismo come back online by itself or will we have to wait until Monday when NPS can get down there?
07:59:40 <Joe> riverside ns 0957
07:59:41 <ynpvisitor35> wonder why one geyser would be affected and not the others - very specific glitch!
08:00:15 <Dave from B™> I think Donnie Grisso entered it so many times that no one else was allowed to:)
08:00:59 <Joe> if i remember correctly the seismo came back on its own
08:15:02 <Dave from B™> At least the Tantulus Creek info is flowing
08:20:56 <LindaG> I believe seismo came back on it's own last week
08:21:20 <Joe> drat, gets snowy just before daisy
08:22:36 <Dave from B™> Our forecast has been downgraded to 8" from Sunday thru Wed
08:22:57 <CraigC> hey Steph
08:24:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats so disapointing Dave
08:25:10 <Dave from B™> Hey, Graham. If you like snow so much...move out here when you retire!:)
08:25:32 <Dave from B™> Time for me to head out. Have a great Saturday everyone!
08:25:50 <LindaG> Ey Dave, good luck monday
08:26:37 <LindaG> Seismo back?
08:26:54 <Joe> yes
08:27:25 <Dave from B™> Thanks Linda
08:27:35 <LindaG> Could have sworn I looked a minute ago and it wasnt
08:27:42 <CraigC> cya Dave, enjoy
08:28:00 <CraigC> cool, glad to see it back
08:28:16 <Dave from B™> I'm thinking after dark today or tomorrow morning for SB
08:28:35 <LindaG> 🤞
08:28:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> i may take you up on that Dave
08:29:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> will clear snow for room and board :)
08:32:49 <Steph> CraigC, Hi! Sorry I was taking the garbage out AND chatting about all our earthquakes.
08:33:35 <CraigC> Steph, 102 quakes?
08:33:47 <Steph> Yep, this is our life now.
08:34:38 <CraigC> lots of small slippage is better than buildup and one-fell-swoop
08:35:51 <Steph> I agree, and I feel safe. The biggest earthquake I was in was California '88... 6.1 and a super hot day. We called it Shake and Bake
08:36:28 <Joe> bee steam
08:37:46 <LindaG> Go bee
08:38:00 <LindaG> Awwww bee is blue
08:38:09 <Joe> low steam may be indy
08:38:31 <Joe> hard to tell
08:38:57 <LindaG> Not yet on static
08:39:13 <LindaG> Drove me crazy yesterday
08:39:40 <Joe> i'm allready crazy :0
08:40:01 <LindaG> So it can only drive you sane
08:40:13 <Joe> :)
08:40:16 <Steph> :lol::lol::lol:
08:40:42 <LindaG> Hi steph
08:41:01 <Steph> LindaG, Hi!!
08:41:31 <LindaG> I forget, which state do you live in?
08:41:59 <Steph> Utah in Draper, the Southest part of Salt Lake.
08:42:54 <LindaG> Oh ok, I remember someone mentioned 102 earthquakes, wasnt positive about state
08:43:38 <Steph> Yeah, in the city right next door. They keep waking us up.
08:44:57 <LindaG> Had one hear a few years ago, little, but if felt it. Didnt like it. The ground is the last thing I depend on. If that goes well all confidence is gone.
08:45:46 <Joe> of
08:46:08 <Steph> LindaG, it's a weird feeling that's for sure. These aren't very deep, and more jolty. Like someone walking up behind you and shaking your chair.
08:47:29 <Steph> We need a bright pink coat out there or something. Everything looks grayscale. ;)
08:47:33 <LindaG> Yes that's how mine was, felt couch shaking, thiught I was imagining it, then when I looked it was actually shaking. Freaked me out.
08:48:38 <LindaG> Maybe pour some pink into old faithful
08:49:26 <Steph> Or some pee like that dude last summer. That was gross.
08:49:45 <CraigC> ughhh
08:49:57 <LindaG> Lol
08:53:58 <Joe> are Bee and Grand going to have an ~noon dual
08:54:21 <Joe> daisy
08:57:07 <CraigC> maybe SB, also?
08:57:27 <Joe> lets hope
08:57:48 <Emily> hi
08:59:04 <CraigC> hey Emily
09:03:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> are you going to make it to thepark this summer Emily?
09:04:36 <Emily> yes I am
09:04:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> good. what time of year?
09:06:05 <Emily> late june (?) and labor day ish
09:06:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> ok. hope to see you labor Day
09:09:19 <Emily> Yes, I will to. My school break has shifted by about a month from late may to late august shifting to mid june to late september
09:09:42 <Emily> so I have fall YNP options rather than spring options
09:10:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> labor day is maximum gazertime
09:11:36 <Emily> It is. There was like 50-60 gazers on Sept !st waiting for Giant
09:11:53 <Emily> the bike racks were completely full
09:13:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> yep, that week is extra busy. i have counted over 70 before
09:26:33 <LindaG> Feb 2019 is now the snowiest on record at over 100", not counting what's coming, for Jackson Hole.
09:28:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh nice. how is it for the whole year
09:32:19 <LindaG> Article didnt say
09:36:57 <LindaG> For the season they've had 389", but that probably includes december.
09:38:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah, thats usually what they measure, the entire winter season including oct nd now liely
09:38:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> that eems like a good amount of now
09:40:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> my keyboard is operating in Dave power mode
09:41:57 <Joe> grand
09:49:14 <Joe> ~8min
09:51:16 <Joe> ~10min
09:51:28 <Joe> no pause yet
09:53:38 <Joe> 1b
09:57:18 <LindaG> Almost 24 hrs since last bee
10:00:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave broke it.
10:01:23 <LindaG> I thought it suspicious that he left early 😉
10:06:29 <LindaG> Bee steaming on static
10:14:42 <LindaG> Think we might have I dy
10:15:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like it on static
10:15:41 <LindaG> Now it died down
10:15:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Or not
10:16:20 <Kevin L™🌵> We do have OF
10:16:37 <LindaG> I think we're close, it did this yesterday too
10:17:11 <LindaG> Nice of OF to blow to the right

11:18:01 <LindaG> Yes it's been steaming alot
11:18:46 <LindaG> Occassionally it steams from indy area
11:36:18 <LindaG> Sure is steamy
11:36:30 <LindaG> And then it stops
11:40:21 <LindaG> Come on bee
11:45:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> bhi

12:02:56 <LindaG> Too bad no sun
12:03:04 <Kitt> so awesome, have a good day
12:03:16 <LindaG> Bye
12:03:34 <Kevin L™🌵> It was nice to see it in the light.
12:04:01 <LindaG> 2 in a row
12:04:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> 10 to 25h intervals, nice
12:04:18 <Ryan> Wow
12:04:20 <Ryan> 6min 28sec
12:04:32 <Ryan> Thats rather long for one with the indicator
12:05:12 <Ryan> Unless I did the math wrong, my personal start and stop was 13:58:55 until 14:05:23
12:05:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> so does duration depend on indicator?
12:06:11 <Ryan> Its usually between 4.5-5min for an indicator eruption
12:06:21 <Ryan> Non indicator eruptions are usually a minute longer or so
12:06:44 <Ryan> At least... thats been my understanding and (limited) observations
12:10:28 <Ryan> Gonna assume the noise on YNM is just noise?
12:11:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> otherwise its the weakest SB eruption ever
12:11:49 <Ryan> :sb:
12:39:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks more like ⛵ to me.
13:18:27 <KittyM*> OF IE
13:18:42 <Kevin L™🌵> White on White....
13:27:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> SB is 10h longer than the last one .. its broken
13:28:46 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, what do you make of YNM at ~1242?
13:30:16 <CraigC> a minute of a minor?
13:31:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> bunch f snowcoaches and people
13:31:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> no, i dont think minors shake it
13:33:42 <ynpvisitor30> SB is going to erupt during poker tonight. “It does that “
13:35:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> you should play poker more often then
13:36:19 <KittyM*> ?"?????????????
13:37:36 <KittyM*> oh sorry...cat
13:49:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> we are missing Major flags on a couple of SB times
13:51:29 <ynpvisitor35> So we can tell them from the minors? that's funny to me
13:52:34 <ynpvisitor35> the 2007 one should be changed in my opinion
13:53:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> the one that had no water?
13:54:08 <ynpvisitor35> yeap. but there are so many NOTES now it might be hard to find
13:55:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> its on GT as a non-major to make it stand out. i meant putting Maj on the two recent ones
13:55:58 <Emily> I have seen a lack of Maj on the recent steamboat eruptions
13:56:38 <Emily> I actually have a question. For the people who have seen steamboat in the past before this active phase. What are the eruptions like compared to these. I suppose Ill have to ask suzzane and rocco
13:58:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> suzannes comment prior to the May 27 first one seen was that the prelim activity was all different
13:58:22 <ynpvisitor35> then Will or someone should add some commentary to that - isn't there a link about it somewhere?
13:58:51 <Emily> oh absolutely. Im curious though about the actual eruptions
13:58:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> concerted play wasnt really seen or important in the build up of different vents in control they saw in the 80s
13:59:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> not sure what you men 35 - theres a comment on the 2007 eruption
13:59:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> JSJ posted the link to the article on it
14:00:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> there was a lot of variety in activity from short to very long durations, the mixed phase that hadnt been seen before and the pauses
14:01:04 <ynpvisitor35> good thanks Go S
14:01:25 <ynpvisitor35> but it does make the interval off by including at as a real eruption
14:01:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> I agree adding to the eruption comment so it shows up obviously would be nice too
14:02:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> we show major and minor eruptions for other geysers.
14:02:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> if people want to calculate maj-maj intervals they have to filter them out
14:04:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> we log things like Penta steam phase also, so its not the only geyser like that
14:04:51 <Kevin iPad> FYI there is a long windows update coming. My computer has been grinding for a couple of hours now.
14:05:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh nice
14:08:53 <Ryan> 35, and Go S - There was discussion about entering non-major eruptions on June 10 by Will, myself, and others at Steamboat after we saw a minor that was so big that Udo called the start and Cistern dropped an inch
14:09:34 <Ryan> I felt it deserved an entry as a non-major eruption with the commentary about tis size, etc... Will noted that by doing so it would screw up the GT interval algorithm
14:09:35 <Kevin iPad> Started downloading at 1000. Still not finished.
14:09:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> there are so many minors on SB it would be too much data to enter them and its a continuum of activity also, not clearly defined
14:10:13 <Ryan> Effectively it would not distinguish between a maj-maj interval and a maj-min interval
14:10:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> it has minors nearly all the time tho
14:10:48 <CraigC> Kevin iPad, good to know, thanks, I'll start mine at bedtime
14:11:01 <Ryan> GS, well, that minor was *not* a continuum of activity ;) But in retrospect I agree with Will. And all the entries should be specifically flagged as a major eruption for that reason
14:11:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> except 2007 and the other few
14:12:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> that were nt minors either
14:12:36 <Ryan> I agree - steamphase eruptions shouldnt have a maj flag
14:13:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> i see a bunch of the historical ones are not tagged as majors tho
14:14:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> and now we canmove on to the NG Major/intermediate discussion :)
14:14:46 <Ryan> They should be flagged as majors, imo
14:15:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> but they fit the intermediate decription more than major .... theres the rub
14:15:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> blame it on Scotts descriptions :)
14:18:22 <CraigC> how many observers know the difference?
14:18:49 <Ryan> Lion
14:19:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> it was widely talked about in Sept and beyond
14:19:05 <Ryan> GS, I meant the historical SB entries
14:19:14 <Ryan> I am not biting on the NG bait
14:19:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah, thanks for clarifying Ryan :)
14:20:39 <CraigC> I thought you were talking baout SB as Major and Intermediate
14:20:56 <Ryan> There is no intermediate
14:21:13 <Ryan> I am willing to say there is no minor either - just splashing compared to what it is supposed to do ;)
14:21:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Finally!
14:22:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> i would agree with that Ryan, like OF preplay, Lion splashing ....
14:22:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> wb Kevin
14:22:32 <Ryan> "Lion minors"?
14:22:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> lion splashing and SB splashing, similar
14:23:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> nothing like the real eruptions
14:23:55 <Ryan> Indeed.
14:24:12 <CraigC> I love reading these discussions going on like this, even when I have nothing to say
14:25:19 <ynpvisitor30> I still think it is funny that the second tallest eruption at Norris is a steamboat minor
14:25:24 <STS (Sam)> Haha, me too Craig
14:25:35 <KittyM*> Me too, Craig
14:25:54 <Ryan> 30, those arent minors - thats a false start :D
14:26:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah ... lets talk about False Starts ..... Splendid anyone?
14:27:10 <Emily> Oh symantics
14:27:13 <ynpvisitor30> Haha. I call them “stand up minors”
14:27:15 <ynpvisitor78> Craig I'm with You as well
14:28:54 <Emily> WHat makes a steamboat eruption an intermediate
14:29:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> nothing
14:29:18 <CraigC> Emily, that was my mistake
14:29:33 <CraigC> Emily, he was referring to NG
14:29:39 <Emily> oh
14:29:43 <Ryan> steamboat splashes, sometimes it makes your heart stop, and then it erupts lol
14:30:01 <Emily> it does that
14:30:18 <Ryan> You realize the minors are not really eruptions about the time North Vent passes through 250ft and doesn't slow down.
14:31:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> agree Ryan ... keep waiting tosee if it quits and then about 25s in it shoots up high
14:32:51 <Ryan> Its not a geyser.
14:33:02 <Ryan> Its an alien from outer space lol
14:33:17 <Emily> its a geyser god
14:33:21 <Emily> everything else is mortal
14:34:07 <Ryan> I finally got wall art up in my room of my photos. Theres an 8x12 of Steamboat breaking 390ft over my monitor.
14:34:44 <CraigC> you took your monitor to SB?
14:34:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice
14:34:53 <Ryan> Yes lol
14:36:02 <CraigC> Ryan, is that shot on your timeline?
14:39:38 <Ryan> CraigC: https://www.flickr.com/photos/131878030@N04/28669780107/in/album-72157677353161924/
14:40:56 <CraigC> NICE, I like the one scrolled back to the left even more
14:41:05 <Emily> nice spike
14:43:13 <Ryan> It was pretty impressive.
14:45:35 <BWaggs> Fabulous shots! Thanks for sharing.
14:46:29 <Ryan> My favorite one was of all the rocks up in the air.
14:46:50 <Ryan> Its hard to look through a viewfinder when you're crying ahaha.
14:47:34 <CraigC> is that the one with the red circles?
14:47:45 <Ryan> Yea
14:47:56 <Ryan> Those arent sensor dust spots. Theys rocks.
14:48:23 <CraigC> do you clean your sensor yourself?
14:48:38 <Ryan> No, I just keep it clean. I havent sent mine away to be cleaned in a long time.
14:48:54 <Ryan> The one body has some spots on it - the one that goes caving a lot. The other one is pristine still.
14:48:57 <CraigC> I use a gel stick
14:49:14 <Ryan> Maybe someday I will send it in to clean, but Canon will have a heart attack when they see what I put a 5d Mk III though
14:49:27 <CraigC> I used to do the swabs and eclipse fluid, but the gel stick is easier and better
14:50:28 <Ryan> on what body?
14:50:45 <CraigC> I have some Nikon D7000s
14:51:03 <Ryan> Ah, I have a 6d and 5d. I am terrified to touch those sensors
14:51:13 <CraigC> on my newest one, I never remove the 10-20mm
14:51:14 <Ryan> I will do a Giotto rocket, that gets 90% of them
14:52:11 <CraigC> Nikons have a bad reputation for dust bunnies
14:53:06 <Ryan> So does anything taken into a cave
14:53:22 <CraigC> why is that?
14:53:47 <Ryan> ;)
14:53:48 <Emily> https://i.imgur.com/SC7GlKn.jpg
14:53:53 <Emily> not as tall stemboat
14:54:15 <CraigC> Emily, gorgeous
14:54:57 <Ryan> I cant see the top....? Could be 200.... oooorrrrrrr 420!
15:24:11 <ynpvisitor54> Will Grand be visible?
15:25:02 <Kevin L™🌵> If it is it won't be a great view.
15:39:30 <Ryan> lion
15:58:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> ep
15:58:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> dep
16:12:49 <LindaG> Looks like snow!
16:33:23 <CraigC> Kevin, my update took less than half hour
16:38:49 <Kevin L™🌵> I am not sure what is going on but mine just did another one that took 15m
16:40:48 <CraigC> it's a tumor
16:41:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Check to make sure that there isn't a second one in there Craig. Mine did two this morning before it did this last one. The 2nd one this morning is the one that took a while.
16:41:30 <CraigC> don't see any update showing
16:44:35 <Ryan> Guess Steamboat died
16:46:43 <CraigC> as soon as my pizza is done and I leave, then keep an eye on it, it knows
16:57:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Sort of like the Knights last night.
18:09:46 <KittyM*> OF IE
18:12:35 <Sam> Looked to be a medium
18:12:51 <Sam> Maybe a long
18:13:11 <KittyM*> I missed the beginning
18:14:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope SB goes overnight. goodnight
18:16:35 <KittyM*> :)
19:31:00 <Sam> Webcam is down
19:40:26 <ynpvisitor61> Back up
19:41:42 <ynpvisitor61> Nope.
19:45:12 <ynpvisitor61> Really glitchy cam, but of ie
