01:05:38 <ynpvisitor105> Lion
01:06:17 <ynpvisitor105> or not
03:26:26 <ynpvisitor6> I think looking at OF might be better than this view. It just looks like a parking lot somewhere. No doubt people are confused.
03:37:05 <Joe> Grand
05:08:47 <Rice> Snow overnightr?
05:17:54 <ynpvisitor87> .
05:18:58 <ynpvisitor85> Ok so Joe is still hogging Bee 😊
05:19:55 <Joe> Yes, I have done it twice on the new cam! :)
05:20:12 <Joe> Hi Linda
05:20:55 <LindaG> Looks like you got good stuff during the night.
05:20:56 <CraigC> hey Joe
05:21:00 <CraigC> hey Linda
05:21:13 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
05:21:13 <Joe> Hi Craig
05:21:35 <CraigC> wow, nice catches overnight
05:23:17 <Joe> I got lucky Linda, the cam was left on GHill, I changed to night view just before Bee & Grand
05:24:38 <Joe> Bee would have been seen but Grand and Rside not.
05:26:18 <Joe> I cannot think of a "happy" solution For the cam
05:27:06 <CraigC> take what you can? :)
05:27:10 <LindaG> Bee should be changing back to daylight soon, I hope. I watched a gosa rerun of it. Its a good view.
05:28:00 <LindaG> I think we have to do the best we can. Some things are out of our control.
05:29:21 <Joe> Craig, once again you have hit the nail directly on the head :)
05:30:32 <CraigC> It's my own battle, I get whiny too much
05:32:02 <LindaG> What I realized though is that if the cam hours are covered 100% of time, all anyone will see is OF, before it didnt matter, everything was in wide view. That could be a problem.
05:32:02 <ynpvisitor87> Joe, I sent you an email
05:32:36 <LindaG> *arent
05:32:42 <Joe> Greg I saw the picture of you and your dad that you posted, very nice great memories I'll bet, also I'll bet you intimidated those J.D.s that you managed
05:33:02 <Joe> Craig*
05:34:02 <CraigC> thanks, Joe.
05:40:03 <Joe> 85, I replied
05:40:48 <Joe> 87*
05:42:02 <ynpvisitor87> Joe, I'll work on it
05:42:17 <Joe> Thanks
05:46:17 <LindaG> I guess it really is spring we had a reall nasty thunderstorm roll thru around 5am
05:47:08 <Rice> We got them in Upstate NY last night at 1:30 am, no power at my house, but work has power.
05:49:59 <LindaG> Oh work always has power ☹ the rain was brutal. I've seen worse lightning but woke me up.
05:51:00 <Rice> Wind was blowing so hard, that I could not hear the thunder, lots of lighting, it was wierd. Wife just texted power on at home, that is good.
05:52:10 <LindaG> My husband said same thing. I asked him if he heard the thunder and he said no because of wind.
05:52:24 <LindaG> Glad power is back.
05:56:38 <Rice> I was debating going home and getting generator running to keep fridge and freezer cold, glad I didnt Normally about the time, I get generator going power comes back.
06:00:52 <LindaG> Pretty lucky that we dont lose power too often, dont have generator. Could have used one for Sandy, three days without, but that has been the worse.
06:01:57 <Rice> I only have one becuase my father gave me his, I have only needed it once, many years ago.
06:02:44 <Rice> LindaG, where do you live?
06:03:48 <LindaG> Im in Manahawkin, NJ Jersey shore
06:04:01 <Rice> OK,
06:04:42 <Rice> My parents grew up in Jersey, and I still have family scatered all over down there.
06:05:49 <LindaG> Freehold? I think we talked about it a whilexago.
06:06:15 <Rice> Yea Freehold, we must have...
06:06:35 <Rice> Your Memory is better than mine!
06:06:36 <LindaG> 😊 some things I remember
06:06:58 <Rice> I cant remember what I had for dinner last night.
06:06:58 <LindaG> Must not have had your coffee
06:08:29 <CraigC> hey, I have coffee right here, I forgot about it :)
06:08:52 <LindaG> 😆
06:09:06 <LindaG> Now that's a problem
06:12:42 <Joe> of
06:15:21 <Joe> Old Faithful is nice in this view, it was much more impressive in the old view
06:15:39 <CraigC> agree, and BH
06:16:46 <ynpvisitor77> they were both bigger back in the old days ......
06:16:48 <ynpvisitor70> Hi Linda, I used to spend summers in Surf City - small world
06:18:20 <BWaggs> Morning!
06:18:23 <Joe> I will put the cam in another view Kathy or whom ever can take it when they come on
06:18:45 <CraigC> hey BW
06:18:55 <LindaGt> ynpvisitor70, Yes it is, that's about 15 minutes from here.
06:19:07 <LindaGt> BWaggs, hi
06:19:54 <LindaGt> Joe, ok
06:21:25 <Joe> We can see Castle to some of G-hill in this view
06:23:10 <LindaGt> 👍
06:27:13 <Joe> In this view you can catch the start of many geysers without having to zoom at all
06:27:38 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
06:28:14 <LindaGt> Yes good view
06:28:43 <Joe> Even LC Linda :)
06:29:29 <Joe> Hi Kat
06:29:43 <LindaGt> 😊 lc an d lion look so small
06:29:44 <CraigC> hey Kat
06:29:50 <LindaGt> Hi kat
06:30:20 <Kat> Morning all! This will be my first shift with new cam. Have not really spent any time as I was busy over the weekend! I'm going to need some help this morning I'm sure!
06:30:52 <Kat> Is it the weather or just out of focus!
06:31:12 <CraigC> yes?
06:31:17 <Joe> out of focus
06:32:04 <Rice> You are doing good so far!
06:32:43 <Kat> Thanks - thats great since I haven't even signed onto the cam yet!!
06:32:47 <Kat> :)
06:33:27 <Rice> perfect record than!
06:34:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Signing on can be a challenge.
06:34:06 <Kat> :)
06:34:30 <Joe> Hi Kevin
06:34:53 <Kat> It was last week for me! Tammy re-entered my credentials and it worked!!
06:35:02 <CraigC> hey Kevin
06:35:35 <Kat> Are there fewer pre-sets now?
06:36:59 <ynpvisitor47> Youll find you lose focus after about 3/4 of the zoom.
06:37:20 <Joe> There are many, but they are still being worked on to improve
06:37:58 <Kat> I'm going to move it around to get the feel and see whats what - be patient!
06:38:17 <Joe> have fun!
06:38:22 <CraigC> beware of Sasquatch
06:38:31 <Kat> Other than OF - what else can I see here?
06:38:45 <Joe> just of
06:39:08 <Joe> and split cone
06:40:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Right now there are fewer presets. Things will get adjusted but we had to get a few in before Dave went on vacation.
06:40:14 <Joe> in behind the cabins the PMG
06:40:20 <Kevin L™🌵> The Lodge Kat. :(
06:40:51 <Kat> Split cone to the left - and back from OF?
06:41:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Instead of one main area on this one there are 4. OF, GH, Downbasin, and Myriad Group.
06:41:51 <Kat> PMG?
06:42:18 <Joe> split cone right and down 45 deg r
06:42:44 <Joe> ffrom of
06:43:21 <Kat> I see
06:44:13 <Joe> ~100 features in this view
06:44:55 <Kat> I'll stick with the regulars today! :)
06:45:37 <Joe> Bh just above tree in center below bw
06:46:11 <Joe> giantess steam on right
06:46:55 <Joe> lc and lion far right
06:47:50 <Joe> ng near bw right of lion
06:48:21 <Kat> Saw that last week - it's a great view!
06:49:23 <Joe> snow and focus blah
06:49:43 <Kat> Stinks - clearer days will come!
06:51:24 <CraigC> this is a way better view than the previous cam
06:51:46 <CraigC> being able to distinguish features better here
06:52:10 <Joe> pump center above bw
06:52:10 <Kat> I agree! Whats' steaming on the hill in the trees -left
06:52:13 <Kevin L™🌵> You have to be a bit more active on this cam but views are great. Aurum is really good.
06:52:22 <Joe> solitary
06:52:39 <Kat> I thought so!
06:53:13 <CraigC> anemones and LS lower right
06:53:41 <CraigC> doublet pool looks amazing in good light
06:53:50 <LindaG> Ah weather clearing
06:54:28 <CraigC> hey Dave
06:54:51 <Dave from B™> Morning CraigC and all other chatroom members
06:54:59 <Joe> Kevin, I just thought this view for you of arum is a dream come true :)
06:55:04 <Kat> Joe- is the wide down basin where you are leaving it overnight?
06:55:07 <LindaG> Good morning dave
06:55:11 <Joe> Aurum*
06:55:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning Dave.
06:55:42 <Kat> Morning Dave
06:56:01 <Joe> NO but it was discussed this morning as an option
06:56:21 <Kat> I love this view!
06:56:21 <Joe> Right now Grand to BH is the night
06:57:05 <Kevin L™🌵> There is no preset but what Tami and I discussed was a view that had Grand on the left and BH to the right.
06:57:10 <Dave from B™> I'm surprised being off OF is allowed. What did I miss over the weekend?
06:57:12 <CraigC> Artemisisa steam in the back?
06:57:18 <CraigC> Artemisia
06:58:05 <Kevin L™🌵> This is only at knight Dave. Cam can be moved at night if we have a camop with insomnia.
06:58:14 <Joe> I f you take down basin view zoom all the way out, you can align castle on left and half of GH onleft
06:58:43 <LindaG> Dave from B™, Joe is still hogging bee
06:58:54 <Joe> cGh on right*
06:59:35 <Joe> Yes Dave, I thought you would not notice :)
06:59:37 <Kevin L™🌵> I think if BH goes during the day it may be better to go for the Castle view Joe mentioned.
06:59:56 <Dave from B™> I'm promised not to bug Joe about that anymore. I'm going to stick by my pledge:)
07:00:18 <Joe> take the green thingy all the way to the bottom
07:00:42 <Kat> Green thingy?? HAHA
07:00:51 <CraigC> LOL
07:01:01 <Joe> and put castle just on left
07:01:17 <Joe> there
07:01:27 <Kat> :)
07:02:22 <Joe> just slightly right will get more of gh
07:02:28 <Kat> OK, I'm being dumb - what is the steam right of castle between the tree lines
07:02:43 <Joe> hard to do easy to say
07:03:25 <Kat> This is better.
07:03:49 <CraigC> Kat, Sprinkler?
07:03:51 <Joe> just right of castle ts crested pool
07:04:24 <Joe> daisy will be just right of that
07:04:55 <LindaG> Time to mail the taxes. Bbl
07:05:13 <Kat> Love Sprinkler!
07:05:19 <Joe> sprinkler is on the river bank steaming noe low center
07:05:22 <Dave from B™> Is Terra Cotta behind the trees as well?
07:05:34 <Joe> yes
07:05:51 <Joe> like now for tc
07:07:05 <Joe> two skinny trees are grand
07:07:20 <Joe> center now
07:07:28 <CraigC> seems like Sprinkler and Oblong and Artemisia line up back to back to back
07:08:53 <Dave from B™> I can't wait for warmer temps so we can get some good views
07:09:03 <Joe> Craig your map helps a lot on grotto Giant oblong rocket and others
07:09:29 <Kat> Spasmodic in the trees in front of skinny trees?
07:09:33 <CraigC> I forgot to add Daisy in it
07:09:40 <Joe> yes
07:09:47 <Kat> Can I get the map?
07:10:10 <Joe> yes kat on spas
07:10:29 <CraigC>
07:10:47 <ynpvisitor38> Beehive tree was a help in the bad conditions last night. We need to plant a new Daisy tree
07:10:49 <Kat> Now I'm lost!
07:11:08 <Joe> Sasquatch
07:11:38 <Kat> I know - I always appreciated the Daisy tree!
07:11:40 <Joe> three sisters mugwump area
07:13:15 <Kat> Now I know- had to move cam to get a perspective.
07:13:17 <Joe> I just could not see BHI at all both nights
07:15:57 <Joe> I regret having to give up a regular shift controlling the cam but maybe much later this year, I hope
07:16:48 <ynpvisitor38> Just stick around when you can. You always add to the page.
07:17:16 <Dave from B™> Just get yourself healthy so you can drive for a couple decades:)
07:17:27 <Kat> I second that!
07:17:42 <CraigC> *so you can visit the park in person
07:17:43 <Joe> I wanted badly to do Katies shifts while she is gone but I have appointments to keep
07:18:42 <Kat> Who is on for Katie this afternoon?
07:19:33 <Dave from B™> Kevin?
07:19:44 <Dave from B™> Morning Graham!
07:19:48 <Kevin L™🌵> I am doing the early half and Linda the later.
07:19:49 <CraigC> hey Graham
07:19:57 <Dave from B™> My seismo is open
07:20:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello. I am going with early eruption this time :)
07:20:07 <CraigC> Dave from B™, TMI
07:20:10 <Kat> Morning Graham!
07:20:22 <Dave from B™> haha Craig.
07:20:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> congrats Dave .. Isles on a roll. did you ask for a broom for your birthday?
07:20:34 <Joe> Yes Dave Kevin is taking it
07:21:03 <Dave from B™> A broom would be nice. I love their style of hockey. Great forechecking.
07:21:05 <Kevin L™🌵> We needed brroms last knight to remove all the hats.
07:21:17 <Joe> sorry Kevin I did not see your post
07:21:44 <Kevin L™🌵> np Joe
07:22:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> fun Kevin
07:22:43 <Kat> Does anyone know if it's suppose to snow all day today?
07:22:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> cant believe TB is struggling so badly
07:23:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I think snow is all week
07:23:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> radar doesnt look bad tho Kat
07:23:17 <Dave from B™> I finally found my next job. For $29.99, you I'll take your picture next to the Sasquatch tree
07:23:33 <Dave from B™> you =
07:23:48 <Dave from B™> Yeah. they are done
07:24:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> we will have a better view of the Sasquatch next winter pacing between Grand and Sawmill group, and between BH and Aurum via NG
07:24:13 <CraigC> hahaha
07:24:35 <Joe> Nice Dave, Craig has copyright though
07:25:06 <CraigC> Squatch is like NPS, for all to enjoy freely :)
07:25:35 <ynpvisitor38> Weather not looking good for opening weekend. Friday OK but Sat and Sun wet
07:33:00 <Joe> Graham, i am slow :( I just got the meaning of your Sasquatch statement ;)
07:34:59 <Kat> Well, I'm even slower - cause I still don't get it!:)
07:36:00 <Joe> He is calling himself the Sasquatch
07:36:37 <CraigC> LOL, I didn't get that either, thanks
07:37:12 <CraigC> Kat, but keep an eye out for creatures squatting around Myriad;
07:37:24 <Joe> If you have seen Graham on camera in the winter you would know :)
07:37:27 <Kat> LOL
07:37:43 <Kat> I have seen him on cam in winter!
07:39:02 <Kat> Saved that pic for future reference!
07:40:34 <Joe> I wonder how Craig got there and shaped that tree without getting caught :)
07:41:28 <Dave from B™> haha Joe. He is devious that way. I think he had help from a couple of his former "students"
07:41:37 <Kat> :)
07:41:58 <Joe> :)
07:42:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> there was a conspiracy video online which was me in my Sasquatch outfit walking between Geyser Hill and Grand one winter
07:43:31 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, it is still on Youtube, no?
07:43:57 <Dave from B™> Yep. I remember that one
07:44:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> probably, does anything ever leave Youtube?
07:44:16 <Dave from B™> You know Craig can cover a lot of ground on his e bike
07:45:03 <Chancellor> Good Morning all,
07:45:10 <Dave from B™> Happy Birthday to GT today. It is 8 years old.
07:45:12 <Kat> Morning!
07:45:21 <CraigC> hey Chancellor
07:45:43 <Joe> Where is Craig? it is no fun abusing him if he has gone for a
07:45:49 <Joe> pepsi
07:45:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think mary posted it, so I refuse to clisk on it as i dont want her to get more money with her crap
07:46:41 <ChrisO> lol, now i know who your talking about
07:47:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> wow only 8 years old ... seems like its been longer
07:47:07 <CraigC> LOL, I am here, multi tasking
07:47:16 <CraigC> I scroll back for all abuse
07:47:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> i remember the days when Rich would keep track and post summary in Chat
07:47:26 <Dave from B™> CraigC, how is the gum?:)
07:47:30 <CraigC> OMG, there is a feature named Abuse?
07:48:31 <Dave from B™> I want a Sasquatch Pool
07:48:49 <CraigC> last entry for Abuse was 1976
07:49:53 <Ryan> So what changed over the weekend? Looks like we can leave the cam on the hill overnight?
07:50:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> i didnt join GT for another month, May 15 2011
07:50:16 <CraigC> hey Ryan
07:51:29 <Joe> Hahaha, I just saw the Sasquatch video on you tube
07:52:04 <ChrisO> i just have to look in the mirror :)
07:52:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> that was before i grew a beard too :)
07:53:05 <Kat> Joe, how is it titled - I'll look it up!
07:54:22 <Joe> Watch: 'bigfoot' spotted in Yellowstone national park SQ towards end
07:55:34 <Joe> An editot for national geographic posted it
07:56:19 <Joe1>
07:56:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> one was time correlated with my walk to Grand
07:57:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> guess i missed meeting the Sasquatch by seconds...
07:57:49 <Joe> That is it, you are seen near the end while they were showing some bison
07:58:44 <ChrisO> sasquatch would be more believable then half the other crap, i see on there :)
07:58:53 <Dave from B™> Headline should have read..."Even Sasquatch takes a vacation"
07:59:09 <Joe> You appear at 2;51
08:04:37 <Joe> of
08:04:38 <Kat> OF
08:07:14 <Ryan> Very pretty
08:07:40 <Kat> That is nice!
08:07:47 <Ryan> So, the latest thing I have been working on cave related is finding the angles of a rock plane using a bunch of survey points - finally got it to work today
08:08:23 <Joe> nice Ryan
08:10:18 <Joe> In this view the peak of the OFL lodge would make a good place for the streaming cam, they could move the cam and radio, and not have to move the T!
08:10:20 <Dave from B™> So, Ryan, when did you finally get to see a geyser? I know you were antsy Friday morning?
08:10:31 <Ryan> Now
08:10:32 <Ryan> lol
08:10:44 <Dave from B™> haha. That's a long time
08:10:44 <Ryan> And even that was only the end of OF lol
08:10:50 <Ryan> I was caving all weekend
08:11:25 <Dave from B™> There is even a tree that Craig attached a name too. You missed a lot!
08:12:14 <Ryan> guess my next one will be OF or Grand
08:12:19 <Ryan> Unless Giantess gets happy soon
08:14:03 <Dave from B™> I wish we could go back to the color streaming. This black & White is ridiculous.
08:14:21 <ChrisO> lol
08:14:45 <ChrisO> atleast there is no gray :)
08:14:58 <Joe> there is a blue river
08:15:17 <Ryan> Can we zoom in on the Grand area? I am curious who features can be seen
08:15:41 <Kat> Sure
08:16:16 <Joe> Bijou area now
08:17:10 <Ryan> I just saw steam from WT area, was wondering exactly what that was.
08:17:17 <Joe> up from two trees left of skinny tree
08:17:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> oldest GT post was 8 yeras ago yesterday, Plume.
08:17:31 <Ryan> I guess when its not snowing or foggy that its easy now to tell Giant/Grotto/Oblong.
08:17:43 <Joe> Yes
08:18:02 <Mike J> A lot of fun learning where everything is now, and realizing some of the great views we're getting
08:18:18 <Ryan> I can see Riverside or F&M would be confusing at first. But from this angle Riverside should be notably consistent for 20min while F&M would be very wide and erratic.
08:18:40 <Ryan> I think the locations would be weird at first but the character of F&M from this angle is unmistakable.
08:18:50 <Joe> Craig has a map that shows them along a line basicaly
08:19:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> you an see bijou steam
08:19:34 <Joe> yes now
08:19:37 <Ryan> Yeah, I dont think you can see Riverside but F&M is usually visible over the trees from Grand so it *may* be visible from here.
08:19:56 <Kat> Can you tell me where you are looking?
08:20:35 <Joe> River side shows in trees just to rifht of Grand
08:20:54 <Kat> I meant bijou
08:21:04 <Joe> about 1/4 of this view
08:21:56 <Joe> the trees that make a fork left of skinny tree Kat
08:22:33 <Joe> just above it was showing good
08:22:36 <Ryan> The steam way in the distance at the base of the ridge is either Biscuit or Artemesia?
08:22:46 <Ryan> Bulger
08:23:04 <Joe> yep bulger
08:23:25 <Ryan> This is really nice. In time you can probably even ID rift and Turban
08:23:43 <Ryan> Its too steamy now but in warmer times you can surely tell the difference>
08:23:46 <Ryan> ?*
08:23:50 <Joe> turban shows well
08:23:55 <Kat> Thanks Joe
08:24:10 <CraigC> Artemisia seems to line up straight behind Oblong
08:26:30 <Joe> nice stean at bijou
08:27:03 <Joe> again
08:27:16 <Dave from B™> So, Plume died and GT started a day later?
08:29:43 <Joe> So will those that know beable to call a GHP here /
08:29:51 <Joe> ?
08:31:00 <Ryan> So Arty is what I see then.
08:31:12 <Ryan> Joe, unless theres obvious Mastiff surging visible, probably not.
08:31:25 <Dave from B™> If there is any chance, 2 things would have to happen....warm temps and a good focus when zooming
08:31:27 <Joe> thanks Ryan
08:31:52 <CraigC> can we pan left for a sec
08:31:56 <Ryan> You'd have to keep the cam on the area for a long time and look for Bijou to stop erupting for more than a few minutes and *then* you'd confirm with surging and boiling visible in Mastiff
08:32:28 <Joe> Daisy
08:32:34 <CraigC> lot of steam from castle
08:32:44 <CraigC> oh, it was daisy?
08:33:25 <Ryan> I think a GHP from start to stop on this cam would look like this: Bijou not erupting, steam from Mastiff, water visible from Mastiff (if at all), a Mastiff eruption (if it erupted), surging over the trees from Giant's cone, and then Giant.
08:34:00 <Ryan> I dont think you'd see much in the way of detail as all the platform vents seem to be blocked from view and Feather (the only tall one) is probably too wispy to see.
08:34:59 <Dave from B™> I agree Ryan. Most vents are too small to be seen from this distance and with trees in the way
08:35:34 <Ryan> And it would be less than 20min from start to stop. Giant or Mastiff would be IE before you even have a chance to comfirm a hot period
08:36:38 <Ryan> Our best bet, honestly, is a rapid notification from the basin of any sort.
08:36:42 <Joe> Thanks Craig now we know the next daisy ~ 2h 20 min
08:36:53 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
08:37:02 <Kat> Bison
08:37:56 <Dave from B™> It will be fun to watch that area when we do get a field post
08:38:12 <Ryan> Dont push the idea though ;)
08:38:30 <Ryan> It will be fun, I think a Giant start on the cam will be wonderful
08:38:52 <Ryan> Can we zoom in on LS?
08:39:07 <Ryan> Trying to reconcile if I see steam or water
08:39:30 <Joe> I like all the descriptive info thanks
08:39:36 <Ryan> Its at the base of Dome's mount but on the down hill side of the BW towards the river
08:39:57 <CraigC> I htink we saw LS the other day, thinking Betty caught it
08:40:25 <Joe> yes Betty did
08:40:27 <Kat> Is there a preset that is best for this?
08:40:28 <Ryan> Thats why I am curious where the current steam is from
08:40:38 <CraigC> nope, it was Jarno that entered it
08:40:48 <Ryan> For LS? Focusing on Anemone/Giantess would probably be best
08:41:14 <CraigC> Joe, was it Betty? I thought so, too
08:41:30 <Joe> i thought
08:41:41 <Ryan> Definitely not IE now. I only saw LS once, and for the first time last year (saw it after Giant!) and I was amazed at how little steam there was
08:41:56 <CraigC> cuz then she also caught Big Anemone
08:42:26 <Dave from B™> I was here when LS was spotted on Friday
08:42:54 <Joe> Look at yesterday 0957 Little squirt
08:43:24 <Joe> sorry 04 12
08:44:21 <Ryan> GO STEAMBOAT: do you think its gonna skip one or two intervals this time?
08:47:32 <Joe> Craig, you are correct Jarno was the one
08:50:00 <CraigC> more bison
08:50:39 <Kat> Can't wait for a sunny day!
08:51:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think its going to erupt tomorrow
08:51:45 <ynpvisitor68> why
08:51:54 <LindaG> Pretty view
08:52:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> didnt have a long interval .... but its pure speculation that it will jump back quickly
08:53:00 <ynpvisitor14> my speculation is another 14+ day interval
08:53:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> still better than 50 years :)
08:53:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> i dnt think i will be around for that interval to end
08:54:16 <Ryan> I hesitantly agree. I think the odds are better for a fast recovery than one like last summer.
08:55:04 <Ryan> My only reservation is that the last disturbance had two long intervals before returning but the long intervals did tend to shorten every time. So I think if its not tomorrow it will be less than 14 days still.
08:55:11 <Ryan> BUT - it likes to go on multiple of a week.
08:55:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> i did 21d 14 14 17d
08:55:29 <ChrisO> doggies :)
08:55:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> it/SB
08:55:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> and then went under 6d for a while
08:57:40 <Dave from B™> The shortest interval occurred just prior to the disturbance last year. Is that just coincidence?
08:58:00 <Ryan> Not usually
08:58:15 <ynpvisitor14> time will tell :)
08:58:18 <Ryan> SB can do that, historically a really short interval did preceed the zap
08:58:55 <Dave from B™> Thanks Ryan. Didn't know that
09:00:38 <CraigC> focus looks way better than a couple of hours ago
09:01:12 <Kat> Sure does - guess the weather does impat it!
09:01:26 <Kat> *impact
09:01:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> thereare few 4d intervals in history tho, a couple followed by long intervals, a couple not
09:03:34 <LindaG> Ah we can see
09:04:04 <CraigC> LS?
09:04:04 <Kat> Amen!
09:04:11 <ynpvisitor999®> Morning all
09:04:11 <CraigC> hey Jarno
09:04:24 <CraigC> can you zooom on LS
09:04:49 <Kat> It's to the right -correct
09:04:57 <CraigC> this is fine
09:05:19 <ynpvisitor999®> I initially entered that LS as Anemone-Little, but later changed it because I found out it wasn't AL I was looking at
09:05:45 <Kat> Just to clarify - Anemones just after bw turn and LS to the right
09:05:55 <Dave from B™> LS is even with open ski slope in the back, correct?
09:06:34 <CraigC> open ski slope....LOL
09:06:50 <Dave from B™> Not for me but for a black diamond skieer:)
09:07:09 <CraigC> or my fat tire bike?
09:07:58 <CraigC> this view mitigates the loss of the everything-in-one view that we lost
09:09:06 <LindaG> I think if it could zoom all the way we would be happier
09:09:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> LS should be easy to see when its erupting
09:09:35 <Kat> It just gets blurred now.
09:09:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> not so easy now
09:09:45 <Ryan> I vaguely remember the last cam having the same issue
09:09:56 <ChrisO> cam is really clear today
09:10:05 <ynpvisitor999®> I really want to see Dome erupting, preferably the initial
09:10:11 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, so does LS shoot those big puffs of steam without water?
09:10:15 <LindaG> Me too
09:10:25 <ynpvisitor999®> morning fishynp
09:10:30 <fishynp> morning
09:10:32 <CraigC> hey fish
09:10:52 <fishynp> hola
09:11:02 <Dave from B™> Can we all finally admit that NPS made a good decision to move the cam? Change scared the bejeebers out of a lot of numbers on this page.
09:11:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> LS continuously jets water for hours
09:11:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand ie
09:11:56 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, ok, thanks, I have never seen that
09:11:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> not sure what steam puffs you were seeing, they could be steam from Bronze or Silver?
09:12:03 <LindaG> Must be on delay
09:12:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> near the end of LS you can get stops and starts
09:13:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> should beeasy to see LS in the cold damp weather. not a lot of steam in summer as its a thin jetting of water
09:13:09 <Dave from B™> Maybe Pump can even get some respect and get posted once in awhile
09:13:46 <Ryan> No Dave, we cant admit we were wrong.
09:14:08 <Ryan> But I would be happier if we could cut down that tree by grand
09:14:16 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, maybe I was looking at Bronze, then.... I've never watched that area
09:14:33 <ynpvisitor999®> I wouldn't really say it was a good decision. There have been improvements (no more treeswinging, for example), but invariably geyser will be missed because the cam was pointed in the wrong direction (yes, that was a problem with previous cam as well, but it tended to be a lot, lot less)
09:14:45 <Dave from B™> Someday, we will have more than 1 streaming geyser cam but it could see be decades away
09:15:04 <Joe> Craig trimmed one tree ;) maybe he will get that for us Ryan
09:15:13 <CraigC> hahahaha....shhhhhh
09:15:16 <LindaG> Nice. The only downside i see is you are going to need continuous coverage on cam, or it will sit on OF
09:15:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> we are still missing more big eruptions now than before .. its like when we lost the static cam on the tree before and wondered how we would cope ......
09:15:33 <Dave from B™> More eruptions might be missed but I think public gets closeups of many more geysers
09:15:52 <ynpvisitor999®> also the supposedly mandatory 'OF must be in view when in window' thingy isn't really one of my favorites. We already have a static on it, for goodness sake!
09:16:00 <Ryan> Wow I can see Vent!
09:16:23 <CraigC> does anyone think that maybe GOSA would ever get a grant for its own cam?
09:16:28 <ynpvisitor999®> wow - Grotto is quiet for once
09:16:29 <Ryan> No
09:16:45 <Ryan> Even if they did it never would happen
09:16:58 <CraigC> why
09:17:02 <LindaG> Before if someone couldnt do cam, it didnt matter you just put it on wide view
09:17:10 <Joe> Park Policy stinks!!
09:17:42 <Ryan> NPS rules regarding webcams, and the politics involved in negotiating those waters
09:17:57 <CraigC> :(
09:18:11 <ynpvisitor999®> b1 done
09:18:17 <CraigC> even if they added another static from closer to the lodge
09:18:36 <ynpvisitor999®> I can see Vent now too
09:18:51 <ynpvisitor999®> (no, not that jetting at the Bijou tree)
09:18:58 <CraigC> how do you find vent?
09:19:05 <Dave from B™> I'm not a big fan of a lodge cam. Poor views of GH from there
09:19:26 <CraigC> Dave from B™, not about views, but for GT entries
09:19:28 <Ryan> It was better during the start of vent. In water weather we may even see vent
09:19:32 <ynpvisitor999®> from this view it's behind Grand's column, but thereafter you can see steam and sometimes a jet of it
09:19:51 <ynpvisitor999®> behind Grand's column when Grand is erupting*
09:20:12 <CraigC> I'm gonna need a bigger screen
09:20:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think the best lodge view is from the eaves under the entrance, the gap in hte trees is bigger from that end of the lodge.
09:21:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto seems to be near an eruption
09:22:06 <CraigC> I believe the best request at the present time is to ask for them to nudge the static a little to the left to capture Lion and BH
09:22:19 <ynpvisitor999®> at least, if that steam plume comes from there
09:22:29 <Dave from B™> ..
09:24:09 <Joe> Next Daisy ~1040, well it has been fun, got to go, thanks for all the info.
09:24:26 <CraigC> cya Joe, good luck
09:25:01 <LindaG> Bye joe
09:25:10 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Joe
09:26:05 <Kat> Bye Joe - thanks!
09:26:07 <ynpvisitor999®> SC ie
09:26:08 <CraigC> hey Casey
09:26:10 <Casey> Morning
09:26:16 <LindaG> Hi casey
09:26:17 <Casey> Hi Craig
09:26:17 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Casey
09:26:33 <Casey> Hi Linda. Hi 999
09:26:49 <Casey> Why did no one hold Grand for me?
09:27:23 <ynpvisitor999®> wow
09:27:39 <LindaG> We thought you knew
09:27:44 <Casey> OF early
09:28:14 <Kat> :)
09:28:31 <LindaG> Just in time Kat 👍
09:28:34 <Casey> I guess it was just 1 minut early
09:28:41 <Casey> 1 minute
09:28:43 <Kat> :) Linda
09:29:33 <ynpvisitor999®> We tried to keep Grand contained, Casey, but it didn't like that
09:29:44 <LindaG> Time passes quickly between OFs
09:30:25 <Kat> Get those taxes mailed Linda?
09:30:28 <Casey> I guess I'll just have to stick around for another Grand or two today.
09:31:18 <LindaG> Kat, yup i did....I'm free! 😊
09:32:06 <Kat> E-filed yesterday! Done!!
09:33:00 <LindaG> Kat, feels good
09:33:15 <Kat> It ddoes - I hate taxes!!
09:33:23 <Kat> *does
09:34:20 <LindaG> Hmmm strong storms last night must have been a tornado warning that I missed. 😳
09:35:18 <LindaG> Kat, so do you like the new cam?
09:36:27 <Dave from B™> Linda, that's not a good feeling
09:38:17 <LindaG> You mean tornado? Yeah it's not a good feeling. I opened weather app and it brought up tornado warning but then it disappeared. So I guess old
09:39:25 <LindaG> Bbl
09:39:26 <Dave from B™> You don't want to be missing tornado warnings
09:39:26 <Kat> I do like it - presents so many more opportunities to learn. The hardest thing is to get used to the new perspective. You almost have to keep moving since there is no more upper wide view
09:40:31 <LindaG> Yeah its labor intensive, but I like to move and zoom so I like it. I get antsy. 😊
09:41:02 <LindaG> Gotta go bbl
09:42:49 <Kat> Linda, who's on for KAtie today?
09:45:30 <Ryan> Turban is back
09:49:32 <ChrisO> there were 8 tornado warnings at one point around 230 am
09:50:22 <ynpvisitor27> west triplet ?
09:55:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Looks like Constant has changed its eruption(?) cycle
09:57:37 <Dave from B™> DG, can you elaborate?
09:59:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Sure - if you look at this 7d Constant/Whirligig logger trace, the change should be quite notable (it's about what happens at the bottom, those spikes are Whirligig's):
10:00:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Kat, i will be doing Katie's shift for the first part. today.
10:00:52 <Dave from B™> So, big spikes are Whirligig and smaller ones are Constant?
10:01:40 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm not quite sure what Constant's cycle used to be, but it used to be something like 10-15 minutes - now it's more like 45m-2h
10:01:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like a quiet one.
10:02:03 <ynpvisitor999®> but it was along the lines of*
10:03:46 <Kat> Kevin - someone is following you?
10:04:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Linda is taking the 2nd half.
10:04:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Constant is the small spikes, it actually doesn't come higher ~35°C, even less when you rule out 4/12
10:04:25 <Kat> Great!
10:04:42 <Dave from B™> Thanks Jarno
10:05:23 <ynpvisitor999®> well, I guess that was the field work we'll be seeing for the rest of the day
10:06:18 <Dave from B™> Constant slowing down = disturbance effects are lessening with the passage of time (supposed to be about a 3 week event)
10:07:03 <ynpvisitor999®> so Constant slowing down is a good thing?
10:09:09 <Dave from B™> What was Constant doing before April 3?
10:10:11 <Dave from B™> Happy Bithday Jake...or GT that is:)
10:10:12 <ynpvisitor999®> 'spiking' like it did for a number of months
10:10:39 <ynpvisitor999®> about every 10-15 minutes
10:11:37 <Dave from B™> That blows that theory then. I'll leave Norris to MA to explain what is going on.
10:13:33 <ynpvisitor35> I think the large spikes on the Constant graph are Whirligigs, but I too will defer to the master. I am headed there first thing Friday Morning.
10:15:22 <Dave from B™> I'll be anxious to get field reports from Norris
10:15:47 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed
10:15:54 <ynpvisitor999®> of the whole basin, actually
10:16:11 <ynpvisitor999®> I can't form logical sentences today
10:16:12 <ynpvisitor999®> ugh
10:16:38 <BruceJ> It's Monday - logic has to be reacquired.
10:16:58 <ChrisO> i see a doggie :)
10:17:07 <ynpvisitor999®> am looking forward to seeing in-basin UGB reports, especially GH
10:18:00 <ynpvisitor35> First bison calf already reported form the Lamar
10:18:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside in window
10:18:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside ie
10:18:33 <ynpvisitor999®> that was quick
10:21:49 <ynpvisitor999®> I think Riverside's predicted interval should be changed to something like 5h55m or 6h00m, as currently Riverside tends to erupts before or early in the window, rather than more spread out like it used to be
10:22:34 <CraigC> hey Bruce
10:22:53 <Ryan> 999, you know RS is bimodal?
10:22:56 <Ryan> Usually
10:23:20 <BruceJ> Would that capture the later eruptions? If Riverside were predicted in this way, you'd have to say 6 hours + 50 minutes or something like that.
10:23:23 <BruceJ> Hi Craig!
10:23:47 <ynpvisitor999®> I know that, but nowadays the intervals seem to be in the range of 5h45m to 6h15m, rather than 6h00m to 6h30m
10:23:54 <CraigC> Joe predicted Daisy at 10:40
10:24:10 <Ryan> Ah! Monday. I misread you
10:24:20 <Ryan> I thought you said 5:55 to 6:00 (a five minute window)
10:24:51 <ynpvisitor999®> and it even seems Riverside is progressing to an interval of 5h30m to 6h00m, judging by the latest closed intervals
10:24:52 <BruceJ> 999, OK Gotcha.
10:26:07 <BruceJ> Change is inevitable, even for a super-reliable bellwether like Riverside.
10:26:24 <ynpvisitor999®> undeed
10:26:26 <CraigC> Ryan, step away from the coffee
10:26:26 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed*
10:26:53 <BruceJ> LOLZ! :-D
10:27:08 <Dave from B™> haha. I think Ryan might actually be swimming in coffee
10:28:09 <BruceJ>
10:28:14 <Ryan> :D :D :D :D :D
10:29:55 <Kevin L™🌵> eossol stress syndrome.
10:32:15 <BruceJ> How'd we end up with a Riverside 10h 43m interval on April 7? That's SUPER short (double intervals).
10:33:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> sort but not out of range
10:34:21 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe it threw a 5h20m interval inbetween? It did a 5h37m one a few days ago, so it may as well throw in a 5h20m
10:34:52 <BruceJ> OK - reviewing the recent data, I am convinced we need a new predictive range on Riverside.
10:35:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> 4h59m is the shortest in the last 1000
10:35:45 <BruceJ> That 4h59m must be a pretty substantial outlier, though, yeah? how many are under 5h20m?
10:36:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> the ranges are off fr BH, Daisy, and Grand too
10:36:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> i dont know, didnt check
10:36:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> theres a 5h9m in the last 300
10:36:58 <BruceJ> Right, but those three traditionally have a much wider variance than Riverside.
10:37:37 <BruceJ> You expect Daisy and Bee to pull punches.
10:37:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> rivesrside probably has a bigger range than Grand now
10:38:58 <BruceJ> Right, 'cause Grand has been doing reliably 6 hour nor a little less averages for awhile now, with only light variance.
10:39:44 <ynpvisitor999®> in the last 1000 double interval of 10h08m, single of 5h06m, single of 5h24m(!; probably confirms it can do ~5h20m) and then that 4h59m one
10:40:10 <ynpvisitor999®> just a few of the outliers I found
10:40:59 <BruceJ> OK thanks for this - so fairly rare "super short" intervals less than 5h20m.
10:41:42 <BruceJ> So, me gotta go - happy day, everyone!
10:42:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Bye
10:42:37 <ynpvisitor999®> but other than that it seems that a year ago the average of the long and short mode interval was 6h20m-6h15m, which then gradually shortened to what we have now - 5h55m-6h00m, with outliers around ~5h20m and ~6h25m
10:44:11 <ynpvisitor999®> to me it's actually a quite substantial change for a near-constant geyser. The only consistency is change :)
10:46:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> does it just have more short intervals and less long ones? OF went the other way, very few short compared to long. Didn't change the intervals much for each but changed the mix
10:46:37 <Dave from B™> Yep. Riverside had been fairly consistent for a long time. Interesting....has to be the new outhouse
10:50:36 <ynpvisitor26> when did outhouse construction begin?
10:52:00 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure
10:55:16 <Jake> Here is a visualization of Riverside intervals over time:
10:56:03 <Jake> the black line is the median interval for each month, the box encompasses 25th to 75th percentile and the lines extend to capture all intervals
10:56:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> so it is regularly all over the place
10:56:59 <ynpvisitor59> Kevin, you watching split screen Saturday, or pick ice over asphalt?
10:57:09 <Jake> last few months looks a lot like some months in 2013 and 2014
10:57:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> and happy belated birthday to GT Jake
10:57:46 <ynpvisitor59> Riverside is quite regular I thought. It erupts something like 30 minutes after the pool fills.
10:58:17 <Jake> on that visualization, I don't recall how it is dealing with "missing" data
10:58:51 <Jake> I suspect there will be a lot more missed overnight intervals from now on
10:59:11 <Jake> Thanks, Graham. It's not belated, I think it was April 15 that it started
10:59:14 <Dave from B™> I thought RS erupted 80-100 minutes after overflow started
11:01:16 <Kevin L™🌵> We will have to see what happens 59. Ice has been better than I expected.
11:02:37 <ynpvisitor59> Dave, I was wrong. Gosa says 1 1/2 to 3 hours. It also says riverside is quite regular if you know the recent average.
11:04:05 <ynpvisitor59> As to overnight misses. That has been a regular occurrence this winter, so I do not expect much to change.
11:04:21 <ynpvisitor75> I've watched Riverside from overflow a couple times and it's always been on the longer end of that interval
11:05:09 <ynpvisitor59> Kevin, must have been lots of people watching ice. The stands were quite empty for the asphalt.
11:05:24 <Dave from B™> If intervals have shortened, I wonder if overflow has also shortened
11:05:35 <ynpvisitor59> sorry, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
11:06:18 <ynpvisitor59> Does anyone track overflow?
11:07:00 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside's logger usually
11:13:10 <CraigC> OF
11:14:22 <CraigC> what is the steam burst between the trees on the left?
11:15:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum
11:15:31 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, does it look like an eruption, or just steam?
11:16:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like an eruption
11:18:50 <CraigC> does anyone want to enter it based on that static screen shot?
11:18:52 <Dave from B™> I'm staring down basin so I'm not much help
11:19:22 <Dave from B™> I don't recommend static posts of Aurum, especially with steamy conditions
11:20:16 <CraigC> *anyone besides Dave :)
11:20:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I agree with Dave. I could do that one as a questionable.
11:20:45 <CraigC> hey Betty
11:20:48 <Dave from B™> Hey, I'm just being honest
11:20:53 <Betty> morning all
11:21:03 <Betty> hi CraigC
11:21:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi.
11:21:17 <Betty> hi Kevin L™🌵
11:21:26 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I agree... being cautious about info is smart
11:21:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Betty may be able to figure it out.
11:22:15 <CraigC> Betty, discussing this screenshot from static;
11:23:38 <Betty> looks erupting to me
11:24:12 <Dave from B™> My wife missed connections in MPLS:(. Ity looks like its Dodgers, Caps and Bruins tonight.
11:24:49 <Betty> hi Dave from B™
11:24:53 <CraigC> I forget, do you add or subtract 3 mins from staic?
11:24:54 <Kevin L™🌵> I zoomed it and it appears so but hard to tell with the steam
11:25:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Subtract
11:25:23 <CraigC> so 1024?
11:26:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
11:26:36 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, will you enter is as questionable so I can see how you note it?
11:26:41 <Betty> this looked like Rift ie
11:26:53 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty!
11:27:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Will do Craig.
11:27:05 <CraigC> thanks
11:27:11 <Jake> I haven't seen the new cam in zoom mode yet. why so blurry?
11:27:17 <CraigC> was that a Pump burst?
11:27:28 <Betty> little Squirt ie
11:27:48 <CraigC> sprinkler ie
11:27:50 <Dave from B™> Bijou ie:)
11:28:05 <Betty> hi Jake
11:29:05 <CraigC> Jake, thanks for everything you've done on GT. Before I ever came to this place, I benefited from GT data on my park visits to catch eruptions
11:29:09 <Betty> can you zoom on Rift?
11:29:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Pump does show well but I didn't catch it.
11:30:07 <Betty> looks like it is Rift, what do you think?
11:30:17 <Dave from B™> So, steam behind spasmo is rift?
11:30:22 <Kevin L™🌵> I think so.
11:30:33 <Betty> yes, Dave
11:30:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Zoom focus on this cam is not working well.
11:36:47 <CraigC> people on OF
11:37:28 <Betty> conewalkers!
11:37:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Scientists.
11:38:08 <CraigC> did they send you guys notice?
11:38:16 <Betty> ah, ok
11:40:02 <Betty> bulger
11:41:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
11:41:01 <CraigC> BREAKING: Witness images show a fire burning at the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris
11:41:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Not good Craig
11:41:30 <CraigC> no, pic looks sad
11:41:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Beautiful building.
11:43:00 <Betty> wow, that´s a really BIG fire!
11:43:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. BIG fire
11:43:29 <Jake> hi, Betty. You're welcome, Craig. Too bad on the zoom, Kevin. I hope it can be fixed
11:43:40 <Betty> flames come through thev roof
11:44:40 <ynpvisitor35> This is so not good
11:45:00 <ynpvisitor999®> image:
11:45:30 <CraigC> :(
11:45:43 <Kevin L™🌵> We are hoping also on the zoom Jake.
11:48:58 <Betty> Littlev Squirt looks funny
11:49:26 <ynpvisitor999®> This came in about a minute ago: Roof needs reconstructing now I think, if the building is even saveable
11:52:41 <CraigC> wowow
11:53:09 <Rice> Building is mostly stone, so it will be saveable, just roof made of wood.
11:56:44 <ynpvisitor753> So that's most likely Grotto ie?
11:56:57 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
11:57:33 <ynpvisitor753> Could be Rocket/Spa/Grotto Fountain as well though?
11:57:55 <ynpvisitor753> Obviously Rocket would start after Grotto
11:58:01 <ynpvisitor753> And Spa would as well (on average)
11:59:27 <ynpvisitor753> So could confuse Grotto with Grotto Fountain start?
12:01:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Rocket can go first followed by Grotto, 753. It's not common, but it does happen
12:02:48 <ynpvisitor999®> Grotto starting should be quite obvious I think. Large steam plume appears, which then declines until it's at 'normal' eruption size
12:03:42 <ynpvisitor999®> I think you can distinguish Spa due to steam plumes occurring in 'bursts', as that's what it tends to do
12:04:34 <ynpvisitor999®> I'd imagine Grotto Fountain's plume becoming bigger and bigger, eventually stabilising before Grotto starts
12:05:34 <LindaG> ynpvisitor999®, what building was that
12:05:52 <Dave from B™> Fire is sad. Notre Dame Cathedral is an amazing place
12:06:33 <LindaG> Oh no! That was Notre Dame? Yikes
12:07:32 <ynpvisitor753> Rocket can go before Grotto start?
12:08:25 <Dave from B™> I've never heard of Rocket going first
12:08:51 <Dave from B™> Rocket usually shuts off Grotto
12:11:34 <Betty> bulger
12:12:31 <ynpvisitor999®> 11th of July 2017 had Rocket, followed by Grotto, followed by another Rocket:
12:17:38 <Dave from B™> Graham, your favorite geyser is still erupting
12:19:26 <LindaG> What is that back left?
12:19:33 <ynpvisitor999®> Notre Dame's spire has fallen
12:19:44 <LindaG> Ioops it stopped
12:19:54 <LindaG> Oops it stopped
12:20:27 <LindaG>
12:20:30 <Kevin L™🌵> I was wondering about that one Linda. Not sure what is there.
12:20:31 <ynpvisitorCC> How has the camera?
12:20:43 <ynpvisitorCC> Who has the camera?
12:20:50 <Kevin L™🌵> I do.
12:21:00 <ynpvisitorCC> Calling you
12:21:11 <CraigC> hey CC
12:22:20 <LindaG> Watching news showing spire falling ☹
12:22:47 <Dave from B™> Very tragic
12:23:25 <LindaG> 750
12:23:35 <LindaG> 750 tons
12:31:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle
12:32:11 <CraigC> :castle:
12:33:16 <ynpvisitor31> Dave, Grotto was preceded by Rocket several times last summer
12:35:39 <Dave from B™> Thanks 31.
12:36:52 <LindaG> Old faithful window is open
12:37:01 <Kevin L™🌵> I have seen multiple Rockets during Grotto also.
12:37:44 <Dave from B™> nice water
12:41:08 <CraigC> are scientists still at OF? last static of them is 15 mins ago
12:43:06 <Betty> we´re in OF window
12:43:11 <Kevin L™🌵> They will be around a while.
12:43:23 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
12:43:28 <ynpvisitor999®> we still have static
12:43:37 <Betty> hi GE ©
12:43:45 <CraigC> one of YNP's golden eagles died of lead poisoning;
12:43:52 <GE ©> Hello,Betty
12:54:12 <LindaG> Entire interior of Notre Dame on fire they are trying to save artifacts inside.
12:55:05 <Betty> bulger
12:55:23 <Dave from B™> wow
12:56:17 <LindaG> Unbelievable sight, France in shock. Fire they thinknstartednin spire. Possible ly
12:56:33 <LindaG> Renovation caused it
12:57:05 <LindaG> *they think started
12:57:12 <Dave from B™> Linda, read this article. Kind of makes you wonder.
12:57:22 <Dave from B™>
12:57:58 <LindaG> My husband is afraid it was on purpose.
12:59:00 <ynpvisitor999®> - scaffolding shows roughly how tall the roof used to be. This is of 2051 local time, or 1251 MDT
13:00:33 <Kevin L™🌵> That was such a beautiful building.
13:00:34 <LindaG> What's suspicious is its holy week
13:00:57 <Dave from B™> and all the issues from the article link I set are recent as well
13:01:17 <ynpvisitor118> so the scaffolding must be steel
13:06:04 <LindaG> Sad what people do
13:07:57 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini(?)
13:08:22 <LindaG> Yay
13:08:23 <Betty> hello Lion
13:12:19 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm calling it initial - water seen >4m after noticing it was ie
13:13:01 <ynpvisitor118> we don't know it was arson, why think the worst?
13:13:15 <ynpvisitor999®> also, if this was an after-initial eruption, it'd have been much less steam and more water
13:13:23 <ynpvisitor999®> @ 1307, that is
13:14:05 <CraigC> 1st sign of steam from over there on static was 5 mins ago
13:14:13 <LindaG> My comment was referring daves article he posted.
13:14:13 <ynpvisitor118> back to geysers, you could see Rift on the cam? That is interesting
13:14:40 <CraigC> never mind, didn't see the others post of it way back up there
13:15:49 <Betty> yes, Rift was visible in a way
13:16:05 <ynpvisitor118> the runoff?
13:16:12 <ynpvisitor999®> I first saw it on static @ 1307, same time as we noticed it being ie
13:17:04 <Betty> no, pulsating steam
13:17:30 <ynpvisitor118> thanks Betty
13:17:40 <ynpvisitor118> LC
13:20:22 <Betty> LS still ie
13:23:10 <Rice> I seem to have to refresh my screen a lot recently to keep the video feed going, is anyone else having a similar problem?
13:23:22 <CraigC> not me
13:23:22 <ynpvisitor35> Yes
13:23:42 <ynpvisitor999®> it happens to me on some occasions
13:23:49 <Dave from B™> twice for me today Rice
13:24:08 <ynpvisitor35> At least it refreshes:thumbsup:
13:24:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Mine has done that also.
13:24:15 <Rice> ok, not just me then, Thanks
13:24:41 <ynpvisitor999®> AB
13:26:59 <ynpvisitor999®> is it me, or did the ski slope de-snow itself?
13:28:37 <CraigC> Daisy must have gone early
13:28:52 <ynpvisitor999®> it does that
13:29:18 <CraigC> forget what the prediction was, but Joe predicted 10:40
13:29:48 <CraigC> we had it in view all during the prediction window if I recall correctly
13:31:29 <Rice> Just froze again, damn
13:32:41 <ynpvisitor118> no one posted LC, I'm shocked
13:32:56 <CraigC> where is Linda? :)
13:33:09 <ynpvisitor118> I thought Betty was big on that too
13:33:14 <ynpvisitor13> ynpvisitor118, gee I wonder who this is?
13:33:28 <CraigC> is it Micah?
13:33:43 <LindaGP> I'm hiding
13:33:58 <CraigC> or Joe
13:34:32 <LindaGP> Hehe I was just about to zoom in on it.
13:35:20 <Betty> I was in the kitchen for wild garlic soup
13:35:52 <LindaGP> Oh the old wild garlic soup excuse. Lol
13:36:04 <CraigC> lol
13:36:20 <Betty> hehehe
13:36:30 <CraigC> LindaGP, did you say that in a Monty Python accent?
13:36:48 <LindaGP> 😃
13:36:48 <Betty> she sure did
13:37:09 <LindaGP> Hehe
13:37:26 <LindaGP> I want to see dome erupt
13:37:50 <Betty> and now for something completely different ...
13:37:54 <CraigC> is LS halfway between anemone and the corner of the boardwalk?
13:38:55 <Dave from B™> Directly above the bw T on the opposite side of the river
13:39:07 <Dave from B™> The one that is steaming
13:39:20 <CraigC> in line with Dome
13:39:25 <Dave from B™> I guess that's not a "T"
13:39:47 <CraigC> thanks
13:40:12 <CraigC> so where is bronze pool?
13:40:50 <CraigC> ooops, bronze spring
13:40:59 <CraigC> can you see it on this?
13:43:00 <Dave from B™> These are q's for Micah or someone else.
13:43:16 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
13:43:35 <Dave from B™> It is fun to see a view where Giantess, Aurum and Pump steam isn't all together
13:43:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Depression looks hot.
13:44:03 <ynpvisitor999®> Dep ie
13:44:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice!
13:44:18 <LindaGP> Water!
13:44:55 <Betty> fun
13:45:19 <CraigC> I don't think I have ever seen that before
13:46:53 <LindaGP> Marmots quiet
13:48:21 <Betty> they are not sure if they can safe the Cathedral
13:49:14 <LindaGP> Yeah its retty serious, i think they think it will collapse
13:49:14 <Dave from B™> A big loss to Paris and to the Catholic Church
13:49:55 <LindaGP> *pretty
13:50:19 <Betty> I think it is not the first fire in its centuries lasting history
13:54:58 <LindaGP> French govt is announcing it might not be saved
13:55:20 <GE ©> is that bhi, or just bh steam?
13:55:40 <ynpvisitor999®> BH steam
13:55:51 <GE ©> thanks, Kevin for the zoom
13:56:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy's actually quite visible from here.
13:56:48 <LindaGP> Inwatched a rerun of gosa and you could see indy
13:56:56 <GE ©> Haven't seen one since the new cam
13:57:26 <LindaGP> I havent either its on the dark side now
13:57:53 <LindaGP> I think it should change back soon
14:02:21 <LindaGP> Any requests bedore OF, i have the cam
14:02:42 <LindaGP> *Before
14:02:57 <ynpvisitor74> Is this the new default view when OF isn't being busy?
14:03:29 <LindaGP> Well i guess it depends on what we are waiting for.
14:04:22 <LindaGP> Well switch to Down basin when grand is due
14:05:11 <ynpvisitor68> Linda I think they should be finished at OF by now. What time did OF last erupt?
14:05:45 <LindaGP> It's due soon, was thinking about going over
14:06:25 <ynpvisitor68> I asked Jeff to call me but I still have not heard from him
14:07:26 <ynpvisitor68> He called me and said they would be there for about 15 minutes after the eruption.
14:08:26 <ynpvisitor68> So if it is OF is due I would move down basin for at least 15 minutes.
14:08:41 <LindaGP> Last recorded time is 12:43
14:09:06 <ynpvisitorCC> after it erupts
14:09:31 <LindaGP> Ok
14:09:38 <ynpvisitorCC> okay...maybe they are done then
14:11:28 <LindaGP> I'll move away after eruption
14:16:40 <LindaGP> OF
14:17:08 <Betty> man, I´m lagged
14:19:03 <LindaGP> I find lagged helps me more than hurts
14:20:07 <Betty> I hate to be lagged
14:20:39 <LindaGP> Hard to call geysers
14:21:26 <ynpvisitor74> Its almost Lion time
14:21:58 <LindaGP> Soon hopefully
14:22:09 <ynpvisitor999®> roaring
14:24:43 <LindaGP> Of course OF and grand due around same time
14:24:44 <ynpvisitor70> Notre Dame burning
14:25:07 <ynpvisitor753> Grand could be erupting now for all we know ;)
14:25:29 <ynpvisitor999®> we can have Lion and Grand in the same view if I recall correctly
14:25:49 <ynpvisitor753> It's done one interval of 5h12m just a couple days ago
14:26:03 <CraigC> hint hint, nudge nudge
14:26:04 <LindaGP> Yes we can
14:26:37 <ynpvisitor27> Grotto
14:26:52 <ynpvisitor70> Poor Daisy', gets no respect.
14:27:17 <LindaGP> And half of Bee😃
14:27:24 <Betty> LC
14:27:41 <ynpvisitor70> Good news is you can all be depressed.
14:28:03 <CraigC> no thanks
14:28:29 <ynpvisitor70> What you got against depression?
14:29:05 <CraigC> what's it ever done for me? :)
14:29:22 <LindaGP> Lion
14:29:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
14:29:30 <ynpvisitor70> All Grand has done is make my feet hot.
14:29:30 <CraigC> :lion:
14:29:45 <ynpvisitor999®> a minor
14:29:48 <LindaGP> Maybe minor
14:30:07 <LindaGP> Marmot
14:31:00 <Dave from B™> FB pics of people watching on the wrong side of Grand from the 1940s were awesome
14:31:14 <CraigC> wrong side.... LOL
14:32:45 <CraigC> Dave from B™, did you see the pic I posted of Handkerchief?
14:33:34 <CraigC> here;
14:33:47 <Dave from B™> Briefly. It was a highly photographed feature in the old days. An important stop to clean your handkerchief
14:34:11 <Dave from B™> Which, btw, I may be the only person left who uses one daily
14:34:14 <CraigC> look at the signs right next to the features with no paths
14:34:24 <ynpvisitor999®> they really put poles into the ground back then with a name plate?
14:34:53 <Dave from B™> That's crazy
14:35:30 <ynpvisitor50> You can still see the rusted portion of the bottom of one of the poles on the Lion platform.
14:35:35 <CraigC> in the future with hovercraft platforms, people will gasp at our boardwalks in the ground
14:35:35 <Dave from B™> I don't believe bw came into existence until 40s or 50s or 60s
14:35:36 <LindaGP> I think maybe daisy is due soon
14:35:55 <ynpvisitor50> I believe that's also how the Posthole vent of the Giant Complex got its name.
14:36:24 <Dave from B™> That would make sense
14:37:51 <CraigC> sprinkler
14:38:18 <CraigC> wb CC
14:38:22 <ynpvisitor50>
14:38:34 <ynpvisitor50> you can see the rusty red post in that photo
14:38:40 <ynpvisitorCC> Just got a call from Jeff and they are finished now for the day.
14:38:59 <LindaGP> Ok thanks cc
14:39:04 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Craig....sorry I could not respond earlier.
14:39:23 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
14:39:51 <CraigC> ynpvisitor50, cool, I'll pay more attention for that next visit
14:40:03 <LindaGP> It says something that the news has shown Notre Dame nonstop
14:40:15 <ynpvisitor27> Daisy probably over 1 hour ago next 1h 10 min
14:40:29 <ynpvisitorCC> So sad about Notre Dame
14:40:52 <LindaGP> It is sad
14:41:00 <LindaGP> Ok about daisy
14:41:37 <ynpvisitor27> I could be wrong just looking at timing
14:41:50 <GO CAPS & SB> thats better
14:42:24 <LindaGP> Gt predicted around this time
14:42:32 <Dave from B™> Hopefully soon, we will be facing each other Graham
14:43:40 <GO CAPS & SB> hopefully we skip a round and then play
14:45:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion roar
14:46:12 <Dave from B™> Nascar driver Jimmie Johnson had a respectable run in the Boston Marathon today. 3:09:07
14:47:54 <ynpvisitor83> He runs faster then he drives.
14:49:05 <ynpvisitor83> Daisy steam?
14:49:40 <Dave from B™> Grand ie
14:49:52 <Betty> no, from castle
14:50:14 <LindaGP> I think grotto dave
14:50:57 <Dave from B™> Yep. you're right. Enlarged my small screan and it is grotto. Grand is imminent
14:51:38 <LindaGP> Hard to tell with all this steam whats what
14:52:00 <Dave from B™> Bijou is a constant contributor as well
14:52:04 <ynpvisitor118> nothing else due, keeping on Grand seems like a good bet
14:52:12 <LindaGP> Lion
14:52:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
14:52:23 <ynpvisitor8> yes
14:52:38 <ynpvisitor27> lion
14:53:04 <ynpvisitor118> forgot Lion was a minor
14:53:09 <CraigC> nice one
14:53:40 <Dave from B™> Why are 2 Lions marked as ini?
14:54:09 <ynpvisitor999®> Joe seems to have messed up a bit
14:54:23 <LindaGP> Mines a min
14:54:24 <ChrisO> what does ini stand for? is it initial?
14:54:32 <ynpvisitor999®> yes, Chris
14:54:34 <Dave from B™> yes
14:54:41 <ChrisO> ok ty :)
14:56:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Joe, if you're here, your 1452 Lion entry is not the initial of the series. That was @ 1307 ie
14:57:57 <ynpvisitor27> Fat finger again, thanks Jarno
14:59:12 <ynpvisitor999®> no problem
15:00:23 <ynpvisitor27> I need a bigger phone...or maybe just pay attention :)
15:01:28 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Have fun watching Grand when it goes
15:01:53 <CraigC> cya 999
15:03:04 <LindaGP> ynpvisitor999®, bye
15:06:25 <ChrisO> hard to distinguish between a bush and a bison sometimes lol
15:06:44 <ChrisO> especially at a distance :)
15:07:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Close up with this focus too.
15:08:02 <Betty> seems they can safe the Cathedral
15:09:29 <ynpvisitor27> Daisy in ~ 15-20 min
15:09:41 <LindaGP> Thx
15:10:58 <LindaGP> Main structure of Notre Dame has been saved
15:12:46 <Dave from B™> Good news Linda and Betty
15:15:53 <LindaGP> Its tough to line up
15:21:32 <ynpvisitor112> Grotto looks good!
15:23:49 <Dave from B™> Grand is late
15:25:19 <Casey> I missed the last one, so Grand is punishing me
15:26:04 <Casey> I used to be the Grand whisperer, but we're going through a rough patch right now
15:26:24 <LindaGP> Hope it hurries cause OF will be due soon
15:27:55 <LindaGP> Thats something new to watch - cars
15:29:17 <Dave from B™> I give up. Time to do a couple errands on the way home. Have a great evening everyone!
15:29:41 <LindaGP> Night
15:30:12 <CraigC> cya Dave
15:32:10 <Casey> Any success spotting Turban from this angle?
15:34:40 <LindaGP> That I don't know
15:35:36 <LindaGP> Weather looks like it's turning
15:36:01 <ynpvisitor27> Yes turban shows well most of the time
15:39:29 <LindaGP> I'm going to have to switch to Of soon
15:44:08 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
15:44:30 <LindaGP> Night
15:47:14 <ynpvisitor118> I am sure the back and forth swing is quite confusing for your average cam watcher
15:52:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Boom!
15:52:08 <LindaGP> Od
15:52:12 <LindaGP> Of
15:52:33 <LindaGP> Hate that roof
15:53:05 <LindaGP> Hopefully grand waited
15:54:46 <ynpvisitor112> Chance for a Rocket while we wait for Grand?
15:55:51 <ynpvisitor27> Kevin sent you a PM
15:56:10 <LindaGP> Lion
15:58:53 <Kevin L™🌵> I can hardly wait to see a Giant on this one.
15:59:19 <ynpvisitor27> It will be awesome!!
15:59:32 <LindaGP> It will be exciting
16:00:10 <ynpvisitor112> Why is Daisy predicted so far out at 18:14?
16:00:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Is that Daisy now?
16:00:50 <Kevin L™🌵> No
16:00:58 <LindaGP> I'm off
16:01:20 <GO CAPS & SB> bye Linda
16:01:44 <GO CAPS & SB> is Grand really this late?
16:01:59 <LindaGP> I'm watching
16:02:07 <ynpvisitor112> Last Daisy on GT was at 0830ie. Has one bene seen more recently than that? If so, it has not been recorded.
16:02:58 <LindaGP> We could have missed grand during old faithful
16:03:35 <ynpvisitor27> I havs seen no Daisy or Grand although both could have snuk in there while we were in other views
16:04:29 <ynpvisitor31> and hence the trouble with the cam location and panning and zooming
16:04:32 <LindaGP> Except for 15:40 to a few minutes ago we have been waiting for grand and daisy
16:05:36 <ynpvisitor112> OK, thanks. I'm still curious about that 1814 prediction for Daisy. Who made it, and based on what?
16:06:42 <ynpvisitor27> Yes Linda and there was no indication of either i dai not see a period long enough to have missed grand, Grand is still possible
16:08:12 <ynpvisitor27> I thought I saw Daisy, I posted the cam left and came back in a minute and no Daisy so I deleted my post
16:08:17 <BruceJ> So, for the sake of orientation - is that sput we on GH Improbable?
16:08:58 <BruceJ> OH, OK - so how does that Daisy prediction get resolved?
16:09:21 <GO CAPS & SB> sorry wasnt watching Bruce ... will go back there
16:09:38 <ynpvisitor27> It doesn't only when we see the next Daisy
16:10:00 <BruceJ> OK - well, we need Eagle Eyes! :-)
16:10:16 <GO CAPS & SB> Improbably is the steaming hole in the middle
16:10:18 <ynpvisitor27> I wish when deleting a post the prediction followed but it does not
16:10:42 <BruceJ> OK, well - at least predictions pass with the time.
16:10:58 <GO CAPS & SB> and LS is ie
16:11:18 <BruceJ> OK LS - thanks!
16:11:27 <Casey> Are we in the Cascade prediction window?
16:11:35 <CraigC> LOL
16:11:36 <BruceJ> We wish!!!!
16:11:48 <GO CAPS & SB> LC
16:12:09 <BruceJ> When we get the focus issue resolves, we'll see bubbles in Cascade!
16:12:32 <GO CAPS & SB> good luck with that, isnt the pool water level down?
16:12:58 <BruceJ> It looked nice and blue in the last view. Did I miss-see something?
16:20:25 <Casey> Grand
16:20:31 <Joe> GRAND
16:21:18 <LindaG> Finally
16:22:01 <GO CAPS & SB> 7h9m
16:22:12 <GO CAPS & SB> or more
16:22:41 <BruceJ> It does that.
16:22:56 <ynpvisitor96> Bulger ie
16:23:38 <BruceJ> Sawmill is gonna be AWESOME when it returns.
16:26:36 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
16:27:12 <Casey> Riverside
16:28:02 <ynpvisitor17> What is beyond and just ot the left of Grand?
16:28:16 <CraigC> probably artemisia
16:28:21 <BruceJ> Grotto right now.
16:28:30 <CraigC> over the trees way back or closer?
16:29:25 <ynpvisitor95> Dave did it, first sb' now Grand'.
16:29:34 <BruceJ> Craig, you have the link for the map?
16:30:02 <CraigC>
16:30:23 <Ryan(homework)> Old Tardy is ie
16:30:40 <Ryan(homework)> ns*
16:30:44 <BruceJ> Cool, thanks - so Artemisia is, in fact, just left of grotto.
16:30:53 <Ryan(homework)> Old Tardy 1629ns
16:30:59 <CraigC> BruceJ, I believe so, straight behind Oblong
16:31:14 <Ryan(homework)> I am not logged into GT, can someone log that for me?
16:31:27 <GO CAPS & SB> wil do Ryan
16:31:27 <CraigC> Ryan(homework), thanks, we saw it yesterday and were discussing which feature.
16:32:04 <Ryan(homework)> Yeah thats Old Tardy. It could only other be Crystal Spring (NO) or Nfity (H*** NO)
16:32:06 <BruceJ> Based on the map, Oblong should lie left of Artemisia.
16:34:51 <BruceJ> :bee: is splashing
16:37:21 <CraigC> BruceJ, I am on GE, and it looks like Oblong is mostly right under the trajectory from the Cam to Artemisia
16:38:18 <BruceJ> Nevermind, I am seeing things - you are correct.
16:38:32 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
16:42:21 <Joe> I hope we get a daytime Bee, I don"t need Dave from B on my case again :)
16:47:00 <GO CAPS & SB> i know peeps that will take care of that problem Joe .... Dave wont be walking again
16:47:09 <LoriS> Hello All. How has the new webcam been?
16:47:22 <ynpvisitor95> Busy
16:47:28 <Joe> :)
16:47:39 <GO CAPS & SB> lc
16:47:40 <LoriS> :lol:
16:48:02 <LoriS> GT rather refects that
16:48:14 <ynpvisitor95> It moves around more then a hyper 10 year old on caffeine.
16:48:30 <LoriS> On its own?
16:48:46 <LoriS> Who would give a 10 year old caffiene?
16:48:58 <ynpvisitor95> Cola?
16:49:09 <LoriS> Ah, so sugar too
16:49:57 <ynpvisitor95> Doesn't everyone put sugar in their caffeine?
16:50:05 <CraigC> LOL
16:50:24 <LoriS> I like my coffee black, actually.
16:50:29 <LoriS> No additives
16:50:31 <ynpvisitor95> Actually I do not, I put a few slices of Ginger in my tea.
16:51:06 <ynpvisitor95> No ginger or tea geyser, how disappointing.
16:52:14 <LindaG> Marmot
16:52:24 <CraigC> I use sugar free creamer that has sucralose(Splenda)
16:52:32 <ynpvisitor95> Someone needs to paint the hive, it is hard to see.
16:53:09 <LindaG> Black and yellow stripes?
16:53:10 <ynpvisitor95> Real cream, or something out of a mad scientists lab?
16:53:35 <LoriS> Linda :thumbsup:
16:54:02 <ynpvisitor95> White would work except for winter. It is a traditional color for hives.
16:54:25 <LindaG> LoriS, hi
16:54:34 <CraigC> I gave heavy cream a shot for a month, didn't like it, then tried half n half for a bit, it was better
16:54:43 <LoriS> Hi Linda
16:55:06 <LoriS> Ok, I do like milk in my coffee when in an iced latte
16:55:28 <ynpvisitor95> Pump is pumping
16:55:33 <LindaG> It is hard to see, thank goodness for the tree below it
16:55:49 <CraigC> not I load it up with caramel machiatto creamer and enjoy the heck out of my coffee every morning :)
16:56:40 <ynpvisitor95> All those dark line point to it, just need to remember and look.
16:56:50 <ynpvisitor95> the hive that is
16:59:52 <ynpvisitor95> I hope that is fixable focus problems and not a foggy dome.
17:00:10 <ynpvisitor95> weee
17:00:26 <LindaG> Lion
17:00:30 <ynpvisitor95> now lion' is pumping
17:00:39 <LindaG> Roar
17:01:02 <ynpvisitor95> Looks more like indigestion then a roar.
17:01:04 <LoriS> Foggy Dome ... good band name
17:01:22 <LindaG> 😊
17:01:37 <ynpvisitor95> For a bunch of bald people.
17:01:43 <ynpvisitor95> with bad memories
17:01:46 <CraigC> LOL
17:01:53 <ChrisO> So Pump...pump, Lion roars, and Solitary is back there just being lonely
17:01:59 <ChrisO> ..pumps
17:02:17 <ynpvisitor95> bees buzz
17:02:36 <LoriS> Solitary is not always lonely. Sometimes solitary is quite peaceful.
17:02:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Aurum glistens
17:03:02 <ynpvisitor35> I see Daisy hasn't come in from the cold.
17:03:06 <ynpvisitor95> I thought it teased?
17:03:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Does that too.
17:03:28 <ynpvisitor95> Daisy' gets no respect today.
17:03:46 <ChrisO> Daisy is waiting for it to warm up above 40 :)
17:04:48 <ynpvisitor95> SO is that sponge' that steams once in a while left of pump'?
17:05:38 <GO CAPS & SB> could be. this side of the boardwalk but not back by the big steamy Doublet
17:06:43 <ynpvisitor95> I looked on the map, but the map makes it look like sponge is closer then what is steaming just off the corner of the boardwalk parking area.
17:08:02 <ynpvisitor95> Where are all the critters? A big black wolf would show nicely in the snow.
17:08:11 <ynpvisitor95> Lion burping again?
17:08:34 <ynpvisitor95> Our luck, it would be white.
17:09:24 <GO CAPS & SB> spoinge is in the center, left corner of the BW
17:09:56 <ynpvisitor95> there is a un thing back there also.
17:10:03 <GO CAPS & SB> thetres SPonge
17:10:25 <LoriS> Bee splashed
17:31:15 <GO CAPS & SB> of
17:42:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Do you get 2 pts for the takedown Graham?
17:43:14 <GO CAPS & SB> GO OV
17:43:26 <GO CAPS & SB> quite impressive
17:43:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Is it just me or do the entire playoffs look more like the WWF this year?
17:44:25 <GO CAPS & SB> yeah, intensive play for sure
17:45:22 <GO CAPS & SB> only 4th fight in his career ..... and its a KO
17:50:43 <GO CAPS & SB> whats that distant steam above Oblong?
17:50:48 <Kevin L™🌵> What is that in the trees back there?
17:51:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I think Oblong is closer. Artemesia?
17:51:50 <GO CAPS & SB> yeah oblong is closer
17:52:04 <GO CAPS & SB> might be Artemisia
17:52:54 <Kevin L™🌵> I think Craig posted a map this morning that had locations.
17:53:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Here it is:
17:54:13 <GO CAPS & SB> where are the cartographers when we need them
17:54:17 <Ryan(homework)> I vote Arty
17:54:56 <Kevin L™🌵> From that map I would say Arty also
17:56:05 <Lori S> Great link kevin
17:56:47 <GO CAPS & SB> nasty storm there
17:57:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I love the views up here but hate the lack of focus
17:57:46 <GO CAPS & SB> yeah i know, want to zoom in but can't
17:58:36 <Lori S> So help me out here. Steam in front of and to right of what may be Artemesia is from where?
17:58:49 <GO CAPS & SB> Grotto
17:59:00 <GO CAPS & SB> its the thick steam
17:59:03 <Lori S> And then to the right of and forward from
17:59:36 <Lori S> closer to river
17:59:50 <GO CAPS & SB> to the right of Grotto at about the same distance and low down is Bijou
18:00:05 <GO CAPS & SB> the close steam is Spasmodic
18:00:28 <Lori S> cool, thx
18:01:45 <Lori S> Looking forward to a Giant from this viewpoint :)
18:03:17 <GO CAPS & SB> sprinkler
18:03:34 <Michael> I'll join the Artemisia chorus if there's still room.
18:05:19 <GO CAPS & SB> pull up a chair Michael
18:05:35 <GO CAPS & SB> if it stops now i might change my mind
18:06:27 <GO CAPS & SB> weseem to be having long Grotto eruptions
18:09:24 <Michael> That's going to make seeing a start pretty rare and exciting.
18:10:09 <GO CAPS & SB> hopefully GF is active so wewill get some warning this summer
18:10:27 <GO CAPS & SB> we are at 20min for the steamy thing
18:10:59 <GO CAPS & SB> and done
18:11:07 <GO CAPS & SB> thats an Artie duration
18:11:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like it may be Arty then.
18:11:43 <Lori S> aka teamy Thing
18:11:49 <Lori S> Steamy Thing
18:12:06 <GO CAPS & SB> stil there
18:13:47 <GO CAPS & SB> bulger
18:13:58 <GO CAPS & SB> no
18:14:03 <GO CAPS & SB> too many steam plumes
18:14:15 <Lori S> good problem to have
18:16:47 <ynpvisitor83> Has anyone caught a Rocket Major yet with the new cam?
18:18:08 <Michael> Not that I know of. We're also not sure if Rocket is having a lot of majors these days
18:19:43 <CraigC> dang, I was away.... was the steam at Artemisia pretty huge?
18:20:18 <Kevin L™🌵> BH would look so good right now.
18:20:41 <GO CAPS & SB> getting late in its GT window
18:20:50 <GO CAPS & SB> yes
18:20:55 <GO CAPS & SB> yes Craig
18:21:13 <CraigC> I'll try to remember to check GOSA vid tomorrow
18:21:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Faisy!
18:22:36 <GO CAPS & SB> 1814 prediction, right on time
18:24:22 <CraigC> and Ryan confirmed Old Tardy location earlier
18:26:17 <CraigC> I wish the new mapmakers luck in fitting in all the features that are more distinguishable from this cam
18:27:04 <GO CAPS & SB> i thought that was your job?
18:29:18 <Lori S> Oh hey. That view reminded me..
18:30:00 <Lori S> Bob, who was bell captain at the Inn once upon a time, siad they do winterize the Inn (drain pipes including fire supression)
18:30:01 <GO CAPS & SB> ?
18:30:36 <Lori S> And they shovel the Widow's Walk if needed in winter, but generally thre wind blows the snow off
18:30:43 <GO CAPS & SB> yeah, not too worried about fires, although electric fire could happen
18:31:23 <Michael> Is White geyser visible with this camera?
18:31:28 <Lori S> he said they only have the heat on in winter if there are contractors working in the building
18:31:47 <ynpvisitor111> They also shovel snow out of a room if windows blow open or other failures.
18:32:16 <Lori S> He also said he had never heard the "10 degrees colder inside the lobby than outside" factoid
18:32:41 <Michael> So he needs to take the tour!
18:32:52 <GO CAPS & SB> i am not sure about White Michael
18:32:57 <Lori S> So not sure where I ever got that, though he said it is darn cold in that lobby in winter
18:34:18 <Lori S> Michael, is the 10 degrees thing on the tour?
18:35:00 <Michael> I'm pretty sure that's where I heard it. Would have been 30 years ago so my memory is fuzzy.
18:35:17 <Lori S> I shall message Mr Quinn as his wife would know. :)
18:36:18 <Michael> Well if White isn't on camera, I hope Mugwump gets active so we can watch it every now and then.
18:36:24 <Lori S> I brought all that up for anyone here that was on the night the new cam went live...discussion about snow on the roof
18:38:33 <ynpvisitor111> Looks like lumber
18:38:43 <GO CAPS & SB> maybe a static cam could go outside one of those top windows
18:38:56 <GO CAPS & SB> never realized they were there
18:39:11 <Lori S> Great idea!
18:39:25 <Lori S> Rec Hall, right?
18:39:31 <GO CAPS & SB> still doesnt look like cabin area has been plowed
18:40:03 <ChrisO> looking around again :)
18:41:21 <ynpvisitor111> New program this year, when Dave shows up they are going to hand him a shovel. Better then paying to exercise in the gym.
18:42:28 <GO CAPS & SB> i hope its cleared up by the end of May :)
18:42:43 <GO CAPS & SB> or is that to shovel the path to SB?
18:44:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like a strong wind blowing back east.
18:47:47 <GO CAPS & SB> yeah we had 35 to 45mph gusts. i notifed flights at Dulles were landing on an odd runway too
18:48:22 <LindaG> Yes very strong g wi is where I am
18:48:57 <LindaG> *strong winds
18:50:47 <LindaG> GO CAPS & SB, did you have storms during the night?
18:52:33 <LindaG> Bee would look real nice right now
18:52:46 <GO CAPS & SB> is there an echo here?
18:53:06 <GO CAPS & SB> yes we had storms, not too bad at my home but worse down south
18:57:31 <Art> Hartford Whalers are really going after the Caps tonight
18:58:04 <GO CAPS & SB> hi Art .... you need more goals ... and we need to start scoring
18:58:09 <GO CAPS & SB> call in the ambulances
18:58:33 <Art> At least you're up 2-0 in the series..
18:59:02 <GO CAPS & SB> yep ..... you need some wins
19:00:45 <GO CAPS & SB> CAPS oitshot 32 to 10
19:13:45 <GO CAPS & SB> of
19:22:07 <Ryan(homework)> old tardy was IE again
19:24:28 <Art> Camera focus goofy?
19:25:11 <GO CAPS & SB> its not good
19:28:06 <GO CAPS & SB> Borah Peak
19:28:54 <GO CAPS & SB> or something else
19:43:56 <Art> ugh..
19:44:52 <GO CAPS & SB> at least your team figured out where the goal is
19:45:26 <Art> yikes yeah just fliped back to caps, yeah not looking good
19:46:14 <GO CAPS & SB> 40-11 shots on goal, and 9 of the caps shots were in first period
19:47:20 <GO CAPS & SB> might need a close up of depression soon
19:49:08 <ynpvisitor61> There is always next game
19:49:16 <Art> So guess I haven't been keeping up to date on new cam news, so auto focus is busted?
19:49:34 <GO CAPS & SB> yeah its not good, cant go close to anything
19:50:06 <Art> Any idea of root cause?
19:50:31 <Kevin L™🌵> If that didn't give it to you nothing will.
19:50:39 <GO CAPS & SB> the last cam was like this, then they changed some settings and it worked better
19:50:53 <GO CAPS & SB> thanks Kevin :(
19:51:29 <Kevin L™🌵> The cam man is out until early May Art so we may have to live with this a bit. I know it is something they want fixed.
19:52:04 <GO CAPS & SB> cant go in close
19:52:06 <Kevin L™🌵> I can relate Graham. You saw how our season end went.
19:52:23 <GO CAPS & SB> dep erupting ...... go figure
19:52:30 <Kevin L™🌵> We did get a good bubble on Depression this morning.
19:52:52 <Art> Thanks
19:53:48 <Kevin L™🌵> I would be more afraid of the lady behind the glass than Wilson.
19:54:53 <Art> Some real interesting dynamics with the new cam, basically 4 different views now but none at the same time.
19:54:53 <GO CAPS & SB> looks like Mouth is ie
19:55:22 <Art> OF, GH, Down Basin, Myriad
19:55:52 <GO CAPS & SB> yep, hard to catch things
19:56:24 <Kevin L™🌵> It will help with feet on the ground.
19:56:45 <Art> Rules though state OF has to be in view during it's window?
19:57:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
19:57:47 <Kevin L™🌵> If Giantess is ie I believe you can do that.
20:00:09 <GO CAPS & SB> i am not sticking around for it tho
20:03:19 <GO CAPS & SB> leaving it on NG wide view :)
20:03:50 <GO CAPS & SB> I am glad we can fit BH to Grand in one view
20:04:01 <GO CAPS & SB> goodnight
20:26:43 <BruceJ> Hiyo! Anybody still out there?
20:32:24 <ynpvisitor88> Cam op done. No OFs until someone moves it
20:45:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand ie?
20:45:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably just steam
20:55:22 <BruceJ> Pretty early for another Grand.
20:55:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Could be Rift
20:56:28 <BruceJ> That steam downbasin is probably either Grotto or Giant platform...just a guess.
20:57:53 <Michael> I haven't been watching much, but Grotto's was ie for hours this afternoon/evening, so it's probably still going.
20:58:19 <Michael> Not sure's where that 's came from.
20:58:20 <BruceJ> Quality is so poor now, it's hard to tell whatssup.
21:00:06 <BruceJ> Gotta go - see ya'll tomorrow. Great evening, folks!
21:00:51 <Michael> Bye BruceJ.
21:11:59 <ynpvisitor89 to> the focus on the new camera is garbage
21:28:49 <ynpvisitor21> Focus is fixable yet person is on leave through April so it’s going to be awhile
21:29:37 <ynpvisitor21> Once the moon goes down this view just looks like a parking lot someplace
21:30:14 <ynpvisitor21> OF is the better choice even if it does mean missing other times.
21:33:48 <Michael> During tourist season, it would be useful to look downbasin most of the night to get Daisy, Castle, Grand, Rivierside. Then turn back to Old Faithful near dawn for morning predictions.
21:34:59 <ynpvisitor19> imo, the lodge lights on OF are very annoying & hurts my :i::i: - I'm a no one, but thought that GH was stunning last night. No artificial light.
21:35:06 <Michael> But there's no view that's going to cover all of the important bases, that's for sure.
21:36:25 <ynpvisitor19> That is true. I know it will all get worked out.
21:48:23 <ynpvisitor97> Need committed cam ops.
21:55:31 <ynpvisitor19> Most cam-ops have day jobs or children. They are very dedicated & no one can just be a cam-op there is much paperwork & vetting that has to be done.
21:56:19 <ynpvisitor97> and your point is?
21:57:05 <Michael> we're lucky anybody does it, ever.
21:57:21 <ynpvisitor19> Thanks Michael.
21:57:59 <ynpvisitor97> If people knew they needed cam ops, I bet there would be a long list of qualified people to choose from.
21:58:31 <ynpvisitor66> We are lucky to have Joe, the night owl

21:59:50 <ynpvisitor19> Very lucky to have Joe period, especially at night.
22:02:26 <ynpvisitor97> Some adjustments for night time presets if they have enough available.
