02:22:31 <ynpvisitor67> tks, looked taller w/the humidity
02:24:06 <ynpvisitor37> of
03:32:56 <ynpvisitor37> daisy
04:21:48 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning everyone
04:25:23 <ynpvisitor37> hi CC, should be a beautiful day!
04:31:25 <LindaG> Morning CC and All
04:38:58 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning Linda
04:46:11 <CraigC> mornin folks
04:46:26 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Craig
04:46:34 <CraigC> hey CC, how's it going
04:46:45 <ynpvisitorCC> good thanks
04:47:37 <LindaG> Good morning craig
04:47:52 <CraigC> hey Linda, how are you?
04:47:56 <ynpvisitorCC> Second episode of Epic Yellowstone tonight
04:48:36 <LindaG> Watching the first right now. 😊
04:48:44 <ynpvisitorCC> me too
04:48:50 <CraigC> Sb is under the interval of its latest eruption
04:48:54 <LindaG> I'm good Craig, you?
04:50:42 <LindaG> Bee looks verynsteamy
04:51:09 <LindaG> *very steamy
04:58:51 <LindaG> Great footage on Epic Yellowstone
05:00:21 <ynpvisitorCC> Beautiful photography but to much footage on the Bobcat
05:06:43 <ynpvisitor37> castle
05:10:53 <CraigC> hey Joe
05:13:06 <ynpvisitor37> hi Craig, how are you?
05:14:26 <CraigC> good, thanks
05:20:08 <CraigC> my 8 hour window guess on SB is today between 9 and 5
05:20:30 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
05:20:53 <ynpvisitor37> great! I hope it happens.
05:22:01 <ynpvisitor37> it probably will, Dave is not even in this part of the world.
05:22:14 <CraigC> LOL
05:24:09 <CraigC> I hope it settles in on a 6 to 7 day pattern, I'll be there in 2 months, and again 2 weeks after that
05:24:44 <ynpvisitor37> Bee or LION BACK THERE
05:25:55 <ynpvisitor37> TOO BAD THERE IS SO MUCH STEAM
05:26:16 <CraigC> static isnt any better
05:26:45 <LindaG> I have a feelingnits lion
05:26:55 <ynpvisitor37> it is one of the two
05:27:21 <ynpvisitor37> you would like it to be Lion :)
05:27:23 <LindaG> Yup
05:28:09 <LindaG> It just seems to ge further back, but yes I gave a little reference lol
05:28:16 <ynpvisitor37> from the static i would guess bee
05:28:21 <CraigC> can you make a better guess based on if steam shows on the edge of static or not?
05:28:24 <LindaG> Boo
05:28:39 <LindaG> Bee was steamy this morning
05:28:56 <ynpvisitor36> Given the wind would be blowing BH steam out of the frame; I vote for just lots of steam and fog
05:29:35 <CraigC> Lion is way out of frame and static, right?
05:29:39 <CraigC> on, not and
05:30:02 <ynpvisitor37> that big plume was not fog
05:30:44 <ynpvisitor36> It could be, unless Giantess is erupting.
05:30:56 <ynpvisitor37> yes Craig but if the wind is correct you can see steam from lion
05:31:15 <ynpvisitor36> Its pretty far away from Beehive on the static camera.
05:31:35 <ynpvisitor36> Its now where Aurum/Giantess is.
05:31:42 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
05:32:25 <LindaG> A lot of times you can see bee water on static depending on wind
05:32:55 <ynpvisitor37> if in ~1h 30 min we see a lion then that was lion
05:32:57 <ynpvisitor36> If it is Giantess you'll know whe the next webicorder YFT upload happens.
05:34:40 <CraigC> who is 36, Joe's younger sibling? :)
05:34:57 <CraigC> ahhhhh
05:35:02 <LindaG> Ah ryan
05:35:08 <LindaG> Hi ryan
05:35:08 <CraigC> what's up, Ryan
05:35:14 <Ryan> Nope, just someone who doesn't think that plume came from either BH or Lion :)
05:35:51 <Ryan> Homework, survey data processing, etc...
05:36:07 <ynpvisitor37> around 0900 wwatch for lion, if no lion then that could have been bee :)
05:36:58 <Ryan> I think if Lion doesn't erupt in an hour that its gonna be hard to say that it was anything.
05:37:17 <ynpvisitor37> did you see the large plume above the fog left of OF at 0724?
05:37:17 <Ryan> The wind over the ridge could have lifted the fog bank up.
05:37:21 <Ryan> Yes
05:37:50 <Ryan> Theres also a seismic trace on YFT at that time. I dont know if BH leaves a trace or not... Giantess does.
05:39:31 <LindaG> When was the last time giantess erupted?
05:39:37 <Ryan> 2014
05:39:47 <Ryan> Almost exactly five years ago
05:40:23 <Ryan> I think when the fog bank lifts we will know. Lion will erupt agin, BH would be dead, and Giantess would keep going for about 24 more hours.
05:41:00 <ynpvisitor37> if it was giantess when the fog clears we will see it
05:41:57 <CraigC> the plume seemed to rise more vertically than at an angle, IMO
05:42:27 <Ryan> Well my vote was nothing, and that seemed kind of controversial. So I went bigger.
05:42:56 <ynpvisitor37> :)
05:43:30 <LindaG> Time will tell
05:43:33 <ynpvisitor29> Giantess would register on the OF seismo
05:43:49 <CraigC> can I vote for a northern wind pushing excelsior eruption steam?
05:44:45 <LindaG> How depressing that would be if giantess went in the fog after 5 yrs
05:45:36 <ynpvisitor29> It’s not Linda
05:46:05 <CraigC> aren't there still employees at OF?
05:46:29 <CraigC> now fog is lifting a little
05:46:29 <LindaG> Someone was out last night
05:46:33 <ynpvisitor29> Yes
05:46:48 <ynpvisitorCC> I think yesterday was their last day before vacation
05:47:21 <ynpvisitor29> Not all leave right away or at all
05:47:45 <ynpvisitor29> And furlough is not exactly vacation
05:48:12 <ynpvisitor29> Most wish they were still working
05:48:29 <ynpvisitor37> furlough?
05:48:59 <Ryan> Whatever it was, if anything, it *did* register on YFT from 0722 to 0726, peaking at 0724.
05:49:26 <ynpvisitor37> yes that is true
05:49:27 <ynpvisitor29> NPS employees are laid off, furloughed, until mid April
05:49:51 <Ryan> Not sure we've ever had the webicorder so quiet as to register BH. Could've been, if so.
05:49:54 <ynpvisitor37> ah, was not aware
05:51:15 <ynpvisitor29> What about the same looking trace at 0642?
05:52:32 <Ryan> Not the same shape. Theres a very distinctive build up and tail off at 0722 that would much more closely resemble a geyser like Beehive.
05:52:50 <Ryan> I don't honestly think it was Giantess, the thumps are pretty violent.
05:53:19 <ynpvisitor29> Just stop already
05:53:19 <CraigC> Ryan, have you observed one?
05:53:28 <Ryan> That said, geysers, especially come type ones, have a pretty distinct tail off curve to their seismic traces when they erupt *if* they produce one.
05:53:48 <ynpvisitor29> The big IF
05:54:15 <Ryan> CraigC, Giantess? In person, no. I have seen the webicorder traces from past eruptions. You'd know it when it happens.
05:54:39 <Ryan> 29, geez, I voted for *nothing* and it was too much for you. So, I went bigger, still too much.
05:55:07 <Ryan> *shrugs shoulders* I'll just keep voicing my thoughts like everyone else here.
05:57:12 <ynpvisitor37> all input is appreciated, it is a good way to learn
05:57:22 <Ryan> My thoughts on Giantess are fairly tongue in cheek. My thoughts on what geysers look like on webicorders, however, very much are not. Nor for that matter was my thought that there could've been nothing eruption at 0724.
05:57:39 <LindaG> Well steam is coming from giantess area
05:58:11 <Ryan> Its not Giantess, you'd know before now unless it happened to be in a pause.
05:59:19 <Ryan>
05:59:59 <Ryan> On other, less controversial notes (in theory), Steamboat hit a year since the start of this active phase with 41 eruptions.
06:01:01 <CraigC> that's a lot of info!
06:01:19 <ynpvisitor37> Ryan did you generate that, looks good
06:01:37 <Ryan> Yeah, thanks! I have had it up since... I think Novemebr
06:01:50 <LindaG> Grahams birthday today
06:02:01 <CraigC> can I ask a question about it and then halfway thru your answer tell you to stop? :)
06:02:14 <Ryan> Do you expect me to stop? ;)
06:02:21 <ynpvisitor37> tks Ryan, very useful
06:03:20 <Ryan> Google says I made it on Jan 11.
06:03:28 <CraigC> I don't know if I would visit here that much if it wasn't light and fun in between the sharing of cool info
06:04:11 <Ryan> Needless to say, Giantess is not ie. :P
06:04:16 <CraigC> Daisy?
06:05:16 <LindaG> I think castle
06:05:49 <CraigC> wind is going south
06:05:51 <ynpvisitor37> yes castle
06:06:08 <CraigC> or southwest ish
06:06:09 <Ryan> You could probably answer the 0724 question by checking the bubblers
06:06:18 <ynpvisitor37> daisy very soon
06:06:45 <Ryan> Things look steamy down there.
06:06:58 <CraigC> I'd expect castle to be much higher at these temps
06:07:28 <ynpvisitor37> castle started an hour ago
06:07:43 <LindaG> Bee in eruption?
06:07:45 <CraigC> ohhhhh oops
06:08:19 <Ryan> Sure looked like it for a second.
06:08:34 <LindaG> Itbdid
06:08:36 <ynpvisitor37> have not been able to determine major/minor steam covered since
06:08:54 <CraigC> it's clearing
06:10:00 <CraigC> and I was hear when you called Castle... my short-term memory broke
06:10:04 <CraigC> here
06:10:13 <LindaG> Hard to tell,if bubblers or just fog
06:10:47 <ynpvisitor37> castle looks major
06:11:35 <ynpvisitor37> DAISY
06:12:02 <ynpvisitor37> there Craig
06:12:11 <LindaG> Think so
06:12:20 <ynpvisitor37> yes so
06:12:22 <LindaG> Nice
06:12:37 <Betty> morning all
06:12:53 <LindaG> Ok so 😊
06:13:02 <ynpvisitor37> :)
06:13:06 <ynpvisitorCC> Daisy
06:13:09 <Ryan> I dont think thats Daisy.
06:13:17 <CraigC> hey Betty
06:13:19 <ynpvisitor37> :)
06:13:22 <Ryan> ...........;)
06:13:38 <CraigC> LOL
06:13:42 <ynpvisitor37> very good Ryan :)
06:14:07 <LindaG> Hi Betty, things are hopping this morning
06:14:07 <Betty> hi CraigC, Ryan, LindaG, ynpvisitor37, CC,
06:14:23 <ynpvisitor37> hi Betty
06:14:35 <ynpvisitorCC> afternoon Betty
06:14:41 <CraigC> can you zoom on BH? was that indy or am I embarrassing myself more
06:14:49 <Betty> where´s Graham? It´s his birthday today :-)
06:15:11 <ynpvisitorCC> he is in New York
06:15:38 <ynpvisitor37> looks like some bee steam
06:15:48 <LindaG> Seems like bubblers to left of bee
06:15:49 <Betty> fun, bet he is out for some Operas
06:16:15 <ynpvisitor37> there are bubblers
06:16:18 <CraigC> thanks
06:16:21 <Betty> no indy
06:16:42 <Ryan> Guess we can rule Beehive out for 0724
06:16:56 <ynpvisitor37> so leaning more to lion at 0724
06:17:11 <Betty> was there something big at 0724?
06:17:20 <ynpvisitor37> sorry Ryan slow typer
06:17:53 <Ryan> Depending on who you ask Betty: Giantess, nothing, Lion, or Beehive.
06:18:40 <Betty> haha, maybe all of them ? :-D
06:19:18 <ynpvisitor37> if we get a lion ~0900 I'm posting lion 0724 ?
06:19:25 <Betty> Time would fit for Riverside
06:20:02 <ynpvisitor37> we will see rside soon
06:21:06 <ynpvisitor37> now
06:21:17 <Betty> there we go
06:21:30 <Betty> nice plume
06:23:15 <ynpvisitor37> is that big A
06:23:34 <ynpvisitor37> nope further back
06:23:57 <ynpvisitor37> bee steam
06:25:11 <LindaG> Nice, there's bee!
06:26:54 <ynpvisitor89> Yellowstone volcano recently won't have something?
06:31:31 <ynpvisitor89> :bee:
06:32:13 <ynpvisitorCC> noBH
06:32:35 <ynpvisitorCC> just bubblers
06:33:44 <ynpvisitor89> Very scared recently
06:35:36 <Ryan> Lion
06:36:05 <CraigC> :lion:
06:36:11 <Ryan> What the worst possible way that I could say I was wrong?
06:36:12 <Betty> big Anemone
06:36:21 <Ryan> Oh, I know: I thought it was Lion the whole time.
06:36:57 <Betty> :-)
06:40:46 <ynpvisitor37> all i do is guess, in fog who knows :)
06:43:15 <ynpvisitor37> Ryan it would be fun to meet you, i hope that happens before I'mdead :)
06:44:35 <ynpvisitor37> sprinkler
06:44:48 <CraigC> ynpvisitor37, when's your next visit?
06:45:57 <ynpvisitor37> unknown at this time, medical issues prevent for now
06:46:52 <ynpvisitor37> solitary
06:46:56 <CraigC> hope things work out for you soon
06:47:11 <ynpvisitor37> tks
06:47:46 <CraigC> I got my dad up twice while he was 96, and my sis got him up there last summer at 97
06:48:21 <ynpvisitor37> wow! good deal
06:48:33 <CraigC> taking my mom in May
06:48:50 <CraigC> we owe them for all the times they took us
06:48:51 <ynpvisitor37> nice
06:51:22 <ynpvisitor37> of
06:57:57 <CraigC> hey Kevin
06:58:39 <Betty> morning Kevin
06:59:22 <ynpvisitor37> today is Giant day, stay tuned
07:00:34 <Betty> I´ll buy that
07:00:41 <ynpvisitor37> indy?
07:02:07 <ynpvisitor37> no
07:05:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning.
07:06:03 <LindaG> Hi
07:09:35 <Ryan> 37, I put the 0724 Lion time in as an A entry
07:09:49 <ynpvisitor37> good
07:10:24 <CraigC> ynpvisitor37, solitary entry?
07:10:35 <Ryan> Also, I am into homework today, If I respond slowly thats why. 37, I'd be happy to meet ya someday. I probably wont be in the park this eyar though
07:11:17 <ynpvisitor37> we will meet in the park sometime :)
07:11:41 <ynpvisitor37> Craig I forgot
07:11:54 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:12:10 <Kevin L™🌵> When do you graduate Ryan?
07:13:04 <Ryan> May, cant be soon enough
07:13:38 <CraigC> Ryan, what keeps you from the park this year?
07:13:44 <Kevin L™🌵> I can relate!
07:14:57 <Ryan> Graduating, and all the uncertainty that coes with it
07:14:58 <Ryan> come*
07:15:01 <Ryan> comes*
07:15:03 <Ryan> Jeez
07:15:36 <Betty> is that you, Dave?
07:16:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep. Find a good place to land. Word of advice, get a good retirement plan. Sneaks up on you sooner than you think!
07:16:35 <ynpvisitor37> :)
07:16:56 <Ryan> That is the idea, Kevin.
07:17:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Wish I could get my kid to understand that.
07:18:18 <CraigC> totally agree with Kevin. I retired at 57, all my friends were making more money, but still have to work 5 to 8 more years. Or more
07:19:50 <CraigC> Ryan, have you considered teaching at a university?
07:20:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes, same here. I just knew I wouldn't be able to last in the field until I was 65.
07:21:04 <Ryan> Nah, I cant put myself through two more years of this for the degree..
07:22:07 <CraigC> I understand that. When a lot of my coworkers went back for a Masters, I didn't want anything to do with homework ever again. :)
07:26:12 <Ryan> it has taken me 6yrs to get a 4.5yr degree. Most of that 1.5yrs is due to the effects school has had on my mental health.
07:29:08 <Ryan> well, school, and I am just susceptible to mental illness. My brain often functions like the body of a 90 year old.
07:29:16 <Ryan> No offense to any 90y/o we have here
07:30:15 <CraigC> none taken
07:30:16 <Kevin L™🌵> None taken :)
07:30:27 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵,
07:30:39 <Betty> hahaha
07:37:07 <ynpvisitor37> lion
07:37:29 <ynpvisitor37> nope
07:38:09 <Ryan> I am curious now though if Lion showed up on the YFT plot.
07:38:36 <LindaG> I was a computer programmer on mainframe. Had to get out retired in 2008
07:42:51 <CraigC> LindaG, nice
07:43:42 <Kevin L™🌵> What language did you use Linda?
07:43:52 <LindaG> Cobol
07:44:24 <CraigC> CraigC, my backyard is filled with birds. Lots of little tweety birds that I don't know names of, a blue jay, magpies, and a woodpecker with a red head
07:44:32 <CraigC> ooops, that was meant for Linda
07:44:58 <Kevin L™🌵> That could drive you nuts. I did some assembly and C++ but I couldn't do that anymore.
07:45:41 <LindaG> CraigC, is it entire head red or just top of head and down the back of its neck
07:46:18 <LindaG> Periods, or lack thereof will kill ya in cobol
07:46:44 <CraigC> top of head, and speckles
07:47:10 <CraigC> speckles on sides of wings, white breast
07:47:37 <Kevin L™🌵> We did graphics in hexidecimal from a picture I drew on graph paper.
07:48:23 <LindaG> I dabbled in something called markiv and eztrieve, but mostly cobol batch, Jcl and cics.
07:49:21 <LindaG> CraigC, I'll have to look Craig probably a western woodpecker
07:50:04 <Betty> bbl
07:51:47 <LindaG> Ohhh hexidecimal, that's interesting. Used to have to read dumps in hexidecimal. Yikes.
07:53:01 <LindaG> Lionz?
07:53:04 <ynpvisitor37> third day in a row without water, don't get too close turn off your smell-o-puters
07:53:04 <Kevin L™🌵> We even got a writeup in John Dvorks's column in PC Magazine once.
07:53:23 <LindaG> Lions? Just a purr
07:53:48 <Kevin L™🌵> BH should be soon. I have to make biscuits
07:54:01 <ynpvisitor37> i think lion is done, maybe
07:54:45 <ynpvisitor37> going to be tough to see grand
07:54:58 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, nice. I supported financial systems so programming was one thing accounting users was a whole other stress.
07:55:52 <ynpvisitor37> lion made me a liar
07:58:10 <LindaG> CraigC, could be a male downy or hairy woodpecker.
07:58:40 <ynpvisitor37> grand
07:58:54 <ynpvisitor37> not tough at all :)
08:02:57 <LindaG> Hehe cant miss that one
08:03:34 <ynpvisitor37> Giant later will look good too! :)
08:03:51 <LindaG> Cant wait
08:05:42 <ynpvisitor37> ~8min
08:08:01 <ynpvisitor37> ~10min
08:19:48 <ynpvisitor37> Have to leave, when Kat comes on ask her to fix her 1856 OF yesterday, please.
08:20:17 <LindaG> To what?
08:20:33 <ynpvisitor37> it was actualy 1903
08:20:42 <LindaG> Ok
08:20:49 <ynpvisitor37> tks
08:28:16 <LindaG> Looks like the same kind of steam that Eric thought was a giant hot period, or am I just kidding myself 😊
08:36:05 <LindaG> That steam looks a little thin for grotto.
08:47:28 <LindaG> Go giant
08:50:26 <LindaG> Daisy
09:18:42 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought for sure that would trigger BH
09:23:04 <Time for BH> Kevin, no race?
09:23:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Not for a couple of hours
09:24:51 <Time for BH> Well, you can go out and race trains then?
09:31:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Strong bubblers
09:32:36 <LindaG> Did u bring us some bisquits?
09:33:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Only if they went through your spam filter.
09:33:45 <Time for BH> Bisquits and spam, mmmmm
09:33:53 <CraigC> LOL
09:34:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Not much better than a hot biscuit
09:35:31 <Time for BH> Sausage gravy please.
09:35:52 <Kevin L™🌵> That is what I did!
09:36:06 <Time for BH> or the bee's could put some honey on them for us.
09:36:43 <ynpvisitor18> Lol
09:36:50 <Kevin L™🌵> That would work. I have some raspberry honeybutter that is great on them too.
09:38:00 <LindaGp> My email crashed so I think it got stuck. Kiddi
09:41:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Must have been the honeybutter
09:41:56 <LindaGp> 😀
09:57:05 <ynpvisitor94> OF going
10:01:58 <Time for BH> I hate pbs hostage weeks.
10:02:13 <Time for BH> Been forced to watch old movies.
10:16:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Bee burp
10:16:30 <Betty> yeah
10:16:39 <Kevin L™🌵> That did everything but erupt.
10:17:45 <Ryan> Wonder if the water running into the Indicator is too cold in the winter...
10:18:21 <Ryan> Would explain the dinural behavior and the slowing down in the winter and the increase in non-BHI eruptions
10:20:03 <CraigC> Ryan, maybe within your lifetime there will be cameras where you see the plumbing happening on your screen
10:20:27 <Ryan> Maybe, haha. There is a small stream that runs into the Indicator
10:20:33 <Ryan> Surface stream
10:21:06 <Betty> LC
10:22:46 <CraigC> yesterday out mtn biking, my friend shows me his live EKG on his Apple watch.... technology never fails to amaze me
10:24:06 <CraigC> my Samsung watch is hit and miss with heart rate
10:25:04 <LindaG> CraigC, did you see comment about bird? Might be downy or hairy woodpecker. Should be just black and white, Male has red patch on head
10:25:39 <LindaG> Look the same hairy is bigger.
10:25:59 <CraigC> let me check my Merlin, see if I can find them
10:26:46 <LindaG> Downy is com on yard bird
10:27:08 <CraigC> Hairy Woodpecker it is
10:27:17 <LindaG> Yureka
10:27:50 <CraigC> I took pics with my phone thru the window, but the backlighting was awful
10:28:33 <LindaG> Hairy is bigger, downy more likely if it's at a feeder.
10:29:41 <LindaG> Who killed the bubblers?
10:33:07 <Betty> NG
10:33:13 <LindaG> NG
10:33:34 <LindaG> I couldnt type fast enough lol
10:33:41 <CraigC> there and gone that fast?
10:33:48 <Betty> yup
10:33:50 <LindaG> Yup
10:33:54 <LindaG> Lol
10:33:56 <Betty> lol
10:34:14 <Betty> too funny
10:34:23 <CraigC> serves me right for checking other sites at the same time
10:34:53 <CraigC> ADHD doesn't match well with gazing
10:35:22 <LindaG> Ng is quick
10:35:33 <CraigC> I've only seen it once
10:35:49 <ynpvisitor94> Guess I picked the wrong time to be web-surfing.
10:36:20 <CraigC> it looked like a sneeze
10:38:49 <Time for BH> Here is a good one with a great voice, and a young Ward Bond.
10:41:46 <ynpvisitor49> looks like bubblers are active at bee
10:42:34 <ynpvisitor58> it's a great day for MELTING...
10:44:10 <LindaG> Some steam in the giant area
10:57:25 <LindaG> I haven't seen GHG5 in a while
11:13:25 <LindaG> Bubblers

11:25:36 <Betty> thx
11:25:38 <LindaG> Yay!
11:27:33 <Kitt> pretty good, we fix lunch and then I get the text
11:27:37 <Kitt> lunch delay
11:28:11 <LindaG> Kitt, great timing
11:28:57 <LindaG> Of course OF is due
11:29:20 <Kitt> rats
11:29:33 <Kitt> lets hope for a good wind direction for bee viewing
11:29:35 <Time for BH> Great movie
11:31:21 <Time for BH> Just in time for be, and nascar nap time.
11:32:12 <Kitt> swirling breeze
11:34:31 <Kitt> Beehive
11:34:32 <ynpvisitor37> bee
11:34:38 <Time for BH> waiting
11:35:07 <Time for BH> weeee
11:35:15 <LindaG> Yay
11:35:25 <ynpvisitor58> poof
11:36:08 <Kitt> that is better
11:36:36 <ynpvisitor58> much
11:36:47 <Kitt> so kind of Old Faithful to let bee go first
11:36:50 <LindaG> There It is
11:37:00 <Kitt> Old Faithful
11:37:30 <LindaG> Uh oh
11:37:57 <ynpvisitor58> we're fine
11:38:13 <ynpvisitor58> Kitt was blowing
11:38:28 <Betty> :-)
11:38:31 <LindaG> Nice
11:39:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Great dual
11:40:33 <LindaG> Ok so when he plans left we'll see giant 😉
11:40:55 <LindaG> *pans
11:42:01 <LindaG> Maybe not
12:02:09 <Betty> my stream froze on Aurum
12:04:33 <Betty> not the worst view to be stuck on :-)
12:15:39 <Betty> Riverside ie?
12:16:09 <Betty> I thought I saw a slight steam there
12:34:25 <CraigC> so BH waited for me to go biking.... :(
12:34:52 <Betty> thanks for your sacrifice
12:50:48 <CraigC> well, SB is being thoughtful of my needs at least
12:54:13 <GO GIANT> What, no Giant or SB?
12:55:14 <CraigC> waiting
12:55:21 <CraigC> Happy Birthday!!!!
12:55:51 <Betty> yeah, Happy Birthday :-D
12:56:13 <Betty> waiting just for you
13:05:30 <Betty> did I miss something? SB post??
13:05:41 <GO GIANT> Thank you.
13:06:09 <Betty> there it is
13:06:21 <CraigC> wowow
13:06:44 <GO GIANT> Yeah
13:06:46 <Betty> here´s your Birthday Steamboat, Graham :-)
13:07:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> I almost picked it as my nick today
13:08:04 <Sam> Wooo steamboat
13:08:29 <Betty> how was Opera?
13:10:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> Operas were verygood thanks. One more for me in Washington tomorrow
13:10:22 <Betty> nice
13:10:40 <LindaG> Happy birthday graham
13:10:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> Not sure who is doing my cam slot tomorrow or the following Monday
13:10:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> Thanks Linda
13:11:09 <LindaG> Wow it really is steamboat wow
13:11:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> 10th SB of the year....and going for over a year now. Nice short interval
13:12:20 <CraigC> my guess was between 9 and 5 today, barely made it
13:12:33 <Lori S> Woohoo!
13:12:33 <CraigC> hey Lori
13:12:48 <Lori S> Hi Craig!
13:13:05 <LindaG> GO STEAMBOAT, I can do tomorrow and the following Monday,

13:15:17 <Emily> whoot!
13:15:26 <Emily> i
13:15:41 <kcmule> nice
13:16:33 <CraigC> did somebody send out texts, or how did people find out?
13:16:45 <LindaG> Look at seis ml o
13:16:58 <Emily> refreshing seismo a unch
13:17:03 <LindaG> *Seismo
13:17:30 <CraigC> LindaG, I meant the people that suddenly joined that weren't already here
13:18:17 <LindaG> Oh I saw them talking about it.
13:18:46 <LindaG> No text
13:19:45 <Lori S> Happened to check the seismo...
13:19:55 <CraigC> cool
13:19:55 <Emily> WUMP
13:20:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Fun stuff
13:20:08 <CraigC> hey 9s
13:20:15 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon all
13:20:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> Thanks Linda, 1600 to dark
13:20:21 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
13:20:32 <Betty> evening Jarno
13:21:52 <Sam> No preplay yet
13:22:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> Faust tomorrow and Eugene Onegin the following Monday for me
13:22:38 <GO O'STEAMBOAT> Thats better
13:23:06 <Sam> LOL
13:23:25 <Lori S> Luck O' the Irish
13:24:10 <LindaG> 👍
13:24:11 <ynpvisitor37> now for GIANT
13:24:17 <Sam - laptop> There's some
13:24:54 <CraigC> broke?
13:25:07 <ynpvisitor37> cam down
13:25:08 <CraigC> did it stop for anyone else?
13:25:16 <ynpvisitor37> me
13:25:17 <ynpvisitor999®> still frame for me
13:25:30 <CraigC> back for me
13:25:31 <Sam - laptop> Still working for me at the moment
13:25:33 <Betty> yep - down
13:25:39 <Sam - laptop> There it went
13:26:09 <Lori S> got mine so far
13:26:40 <LindaG> Mine was down but cam right back
13:26:45 <ynpvisitor37> back for md!
13:26:53 <ynpvisitor37> me
13:26:54 <Sam - laptop> Mines back
13:27:20 <Sam - laptop> OF taking its time
13:28:47 <Lori S> Nice wide trace on the seismo this time
13:29:50 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
13:30:12 <CraigC> O'OF
13:30:35 <ynpvisitor999®> Park's closed, right?
13:30:52 <Sam - laptop> Can we start calling geysers with the O' prefix for the rest of the day?
13:30:58 <Sam - laptop> Yes Jarno - closed Friday
13:31:22 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks, was wondering a bit why there weren't any predictions
13:31:42 <ynpvisitor999®> that is, NPS predictions
13:31:55 <CraigC> Sam - laptop, o'right with me
13:32:04 <ynpvisitor82> Yesterday a small herd of bison noticed the lack of people and camped in the snowless areas on the webcam.
13:32:05 <Sam - laptop> :)
13:32:27 <Sam - laptop> 82, so would I
13:35:31 <LindaG> CraigC, you were right on steamboat
13:35:55 <ynpvisitor37> yes he was!
13:36:26 <CraigC> just under 2 hours left of my guess
13:37:02 <ynpvisitor999®> I estimated the chance of SB today at 66% when I woke up
13:37:05 <GO O'STEAMBOAT> My guess was sometime today
13:37:18 <ynpvisitor37> and Dave from B was on the other side o´the world!
13:38:15 <ynpvisitor999®> almost a pause :(
13:38:15 <Lori S> I was hoping for under 7 days...
13:38:40 <LindaG> I'm still waiting for o'giant
13:39:24 <ynpvisitor92> This Steamboat looks better than the last one
13:39:25 <ynpvisitor37> 10min
13:39:57 <ynpvisitor37> boom
13:40:23 <LindaG> ynpvisitor37, Kat didnt come on yet today
13:40:51 <ynpvisitor999®> I estimate O'Giant at 60% for today
13:41:08 <ynpvisitor37> ok someone flaggd her so she should see it
13:42:03 <LindaG> O'k
13:42:14 <ynpvisitor37> :)
13:42:34 <ynpvisitor37> or O)
13:43:04 <LindaG> 😊
13:43:15 <ynpvisitor37> O´:)
13:43:26 <ynpvisitor92> 🍀
13:43:33 <ynpvisitor82> Is O'Daisy active?
13:43:49 <ynpvisitor999®> nope
13:44:06 <CraigC> O'boy, this is getting O'of hand
13:44:32 <Lori S> Craig O' My
13:45:49 <LindaG> O'lol
13:46:47 <CraigC> the YNM intrigues me with all its variations in signatures..... look at the taper down, then back up
13:47:59 <ynpvisitor999®> would suggest a water phase of at least 33 minutes
13:48:22 <ynpvisitor37> too bad no one is there to tell us what SB did
13:48:42 <ynpvisitor999®> spike on the gauge should be smaller than last eruption, judging by the signature
13:49:09 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe equal to the spike before last eruption
13:49:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
13:49:25 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, can you explain that?
13:50:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I've seen a few messages here suggesting that water (and frozen ground) affects the seismic signature of Steamboat's eruptions and the spike on Tantalus' gauge.
13:52:17 <ynpvisitor999®> If you look from that perspective to Steamboat's last eruption, with an extremely small signature and a rather large spike on the gauge, and actually do the same with all other Steamboats we've had, it's fairly easy to discover some sort of pattern
13:52:46 <CraigC> interesting
13:53:01 <CraigC> are you tracking both of them?
13:53:12 <ynpvisitor999®> You do, however, have to keep in mind that (a for us bad) wind direction may lessen the Tantalus gauge's spike
13:53:14 <ynpvisitor30> It’s just you have no idea what the pattern truly is!
13:54:14 <ynpvisitor30> All conjecture yet in a little over a month there will be people watching it again
13:54:53 <ynpvisitor30> Will Giant go in next 12 hours??
13:54:54 <ynpvisitor999®> Yes. Am looking forward to finally have some in-basin reports again
13:55:49 <ynpvisitor37> thanks for the tour :)
13:56:07 <CraigC> I"ll be in the park May 13th, but doubt I will go to Norris. I am taking my 85-year-old mom, and we'll probably spend most of the time looking for wildlife from the vehicle
13:56:10 <Lori S> I anticipate a delay in access this spring due to a glacier at the bridge.
13:56:40 <ynpvisitor37> ?
13:56:47 <CraigC> glacier at which bridge?
13:56:56 <Lori S> Or at least due to 4 feet of packed snow on the boardwalk
13:57:14 <ynpvisitor999®> As for Giant, I estimate the chance of an eruption within the next 12 hours at about 60-65% based on most recent intervals (several 9-day intervals with most recent interval at 6½ days)
13:57:19 <ynpvisitor82> That's better than a half inch of ice. :)
13:57:23 <ynpvisitor30> Some folks do not let that stop them
13:57:34 <Lori S> the :sb: runoff bridge.,given runoff goes up and over
13:57:57 <ynpvisitor37> ah got it
13:58:38 <CraigC> when I go again on the 23rd, I hope it matches the SB window
13:58:52 <LindaG> I thought maybe giant would go first
13:58:53 <CraigC> ooops, 24th
14:00:11 <Lori S> I need to figure out how to soend time at both Indigo Spring and :sb: thus summer plus work 40 hrs a
14:00:34 <CraigC> Lori S, you'd need a doppelganger
14:01:18 <Lori S> or I need to learn how to apparate
14:01:47 <Lori S> perhaps Hermione's time turner
14:05:04 <Betty> wow, it really is doppelganger? that´s a german word
14:05:52 <Betty> well, in German it is Doppelgänger :-)
14:06:26 <LindaG> Didnt know that
14:07:03 <Betty> so is Kindergarten
14:08:10 <LindaG> That I knew
14:19:11 <ynpvisitor82> I've been glancing through Bryan's book looking for Irish geysers, but the best I've found is Emerald Pool & Spring.
14:20:16 <LindaG> There's no shamrock geyser I guess
14:22:08 <ynpvisitor82> You'd think there would be more. Guess we'll have to stick with O'Faithful.
14:23:01 <LindaG> 👍
14:23:07 <Sam - laptop> :)
14:27:31 <ynpvisitor37> tantalus water gauge has not updated since 1530
14:37:31 <Ryan>
14:37:48 <Ryan> Steamboat will stay at 41 for this eruption, will likely hit more records until April 19
14:40:49 <Betty> time for sleep, enjoy Giant. Night all
14:40:59 <LindaG> Goodnight etty
14:41:11 <LindaG> Or betty
14:42:23 <LindaG> Leprechaun isnt a geyser either
14:44:55 <ynpvisitor37> thanks Ryan
14:50:03 <ynpvisitor37> SBwater reached the gauge at 1630 nice spike
14:55:44 <ynpvisitor37> actually 1615
15:30:09 <LindaG> Steam out by giant again
15:33:11 <CraigC> LindaG, do you know this bird;
15:33:42 <LindaG> Pink sided junco
15:34:30 <LindaG> We have juncos here, this is a subspecies of dark eyed junco I believe
15:35:29 <CraigC> thanks, it doesn't have it in Merlin. They have Dark-eyed Junco
15:36:08 <CraigC> ok, sais Pink-sided under subspecies of dark-eyed
15:36:11 <CraigC> said
15:36:24 <LindaG> 👍
15:36:36 <CraigC> thanks
15:36:38 <LindaG> First timemimsawmonenwas innyellowstone

16:28:53 <Sam> Of
16:29:40 <LindaG> Nice
16:32:17 <ynpvisitor97> No Giant?
16:34:59 <LindaG> Not yet, but steamboat
17:13:23 <ynpvisitor68> If no one saw the tap dancing Mammoth, it does not count.
17:41:20 <ynpvisitor69> Nice colors
17:45:10 <LindaG> Yes
18:06:57 <LindaG> Pretty
18:14:01 <LindaG> Beautiful sunset
18:29:22 <LindaG> Riverside
19:00:49 <ynpvisitor37> Daisy
19:16:56 <ynpvisitor37> Grand
21:00:21 <ynpvisitor67> wow Steamboat today!
21:02:25 <ynpvisitor67> on 6 days again
