23:16:06 <ynpvisitor100> hmm, nice steam cloud down basin, wonder what it goes to?
23:20:15 <ynpvisitor100> maybe Grotto
23:43:31 <ynpvisitor9> half hour later and steamcloud continues
23:44:11 <ynpvisitor9> I don't know where Giant lines up from this angle, but Grand isn't due
00:11:27 <ynpvisitor52> I was expecting a better picture. Must be really cloudy.
00:12:01 <ynpvisitor60> clouds & artificial light, imo
00:12:46 <ynpvisitor52> Still a pretty good view though
00:14:21 <ynpvisitor60> It's a great view & nice to see more of Geyser Hill - I'm just light sensitive.
00:30:09 <ynpvisitor60> Thanks that's a lot better on the eyes.
00:46:28 <ynpvisitor27> yay, Grand
00:48:45 <ynpvisitor27> still wonder what that steamcloud was from 0115 to 0145 and possibly earlier
00:52:16 <ynpvisitor27> checked youtube, but still not able to watch yesterdays beehive
02:20:16 <LindaG> Looks like lion is thinking about it
02:20:41 <LindaG> Good morning Joe
03:35:46 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
03:36:08 <Joe> Hi Jarno
03:37:21 <Joe> Lion has been getting ready i hope it does not erupt in the OF window
03:39:36 <Joe> Bee steam
03:39:37 <ynpvisitor999®> is backlighting currently being used?
03:39:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Bee
03:39:43 <ynpvisitor999®> .
03:39:44 <ynpvisitor999®> .
03:39:45 <ynpvisitor999®> .
03:39:46 <ynpvisitor999®> .
03:39:46 <ynpvisitor999®> .
03:40:43 <CraigC> whoaaaaaaa
03:40:52 <Joe> I was not using backlighting
03:41:03 <ynpvisitor999®> we got very lucky there that the cam was panned back to GHG
03:41:21 <CraigC> hey Joe and Jarno, great start for the morning for me
03:42:51 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Craig
03:43:54 <Joe> Darn OF window
03:45:13 <ynpvisitor999®> did you see any Indicator-like steam, Joe?
03:45:57 <Joe> I dont think But I will check soon
03:46:09 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
03:46:53 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it'll be a pretty morning
03:49:37 <Joe> sorry about the back and forth
03:56:47 <LindaG> Yikes missed bee, oh well
03:56:56 <LindaG> Good morning all
03:57:11 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Linda
03:57:23 <LindaG> ynpvisitor999®, hi
03:57:53 <LindaG> Bee has been unpredictable lately
03:58:15 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
03:59:31 <LindaG> And apparently I missed aurum ☹
03:59:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle in window
04:00:09 <Joe> Jarno Indicator ~0532
04:00:28 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks
04:02:39 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Micah
04:02:46 <Micah> Of course bee had to go early when it new I was trying to leave.
04:04:02 <LindaG> Hi micah
04:04:19 <Micah> Trying to be up at Steamboat by 730.
04:04:41 <Micah> We'll see if there's an improvement from last night. I had to TEAR myself away
04:04:54 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
04:04:54 <Joe> We could have watched the whole bee if I had known OF would be late :(
04:06:27 <ynpvisitor999®> so Norris is in a disturbance :(
04:06:41 <Micah> At least the back basin yes.
04:07:00 <Micah> But steamboat looks like it might just plow through it again. We'll see.
04:08:08 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand?
04:08:16 <ynpvisitor999®> nah, too early
04:08:35 <ynpvisitor999®> what's that plume there? Grotto? Giant platform?
04:08:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Spas maybe?
04:08:53 <Joe> I think Grotto
04:09:09 <Micah> Giant is belly up.
04:09:23 <Micah> I don't it expect it for quite some time.
04:10:00 <Joe> Castle coming up,I'll leave this view for next camop
04:10:04 <Micah> Fan and Mortar are snoozing.
04:10:20 <Joe> Hi Kevin Micah and Linda
04:10:24 <Micah> It's pretty quiet in the ugb right now.
04:12:23 <LindaG> Joe, hi
04:12:38 <ChrisO> good morning all :)
04:12:45 <LindaG> ChrisO, hi
04:13:10 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Chris
04:14:44 <Micah> OK. I'm gonna finish getting ready. Have a good day everyone.
04:15:05 <ynpvisitor999®> have fun Micah
04:15:12 <ynpvisitor999®> hope you can catch Steamboat
04:17:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
04:17:52 <CraigC> hey Kevin
04:17:58 <CraigC> hey Linda
04:18:02 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, hi
04:18:09 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
04:19:29 <CraigC> is that normal steam for Oblong in the morning?
04:20:30 <ynpvisitor999®> It's rather humid (94%) and cold (37°F) at the moment, so no wonder everything looks steamier than usual
04:20:43 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
04:21:12 <ynpvisitor999®> though I do have a funny feeling about the Grand-Grotto area steam. Probably a tad too excited :D
04:21:52 <Joe> I have seen that much periodically, Puts me on the chair edge, Craig
04:22:13 <CraigC> :)
04:25:30 <Joe> At night you can see plumes from Midway, Biscuit and Black Sand basins
04:27:03 <Joe> I hope someone watches at night and can plot them on a map, I know Midway but which are the others
04:27:55 <GO GOGGLE> morning
04:28:01 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Graham
04:30:30 <CraigC> I did a trajectory to Cliff Geyser at BSB on the one map. It appears just right of Mugwump
04:30:38 <CraigC> hey Graham
04:31:17 <CraigC> I don't know how much steam Sunset Lake puts out
04:33:09 <CraigC> what features would produce the most steam at Biscuit
04:33:23 <GO GOGGLE> yeah, black Sand is well to the left
04:34:01 <GO GOGGLE> not sure what the down basin steam clouds are
04:34:13 <LindaG> GO GOGGLE, hi
04:34:40 <GO GOGGLE> someone said Biscuit is just above Oblong
04:34:49 <GO GOGGLE> not seeing any steam there
04:34:55 <CraigC> I've observed huge plumes from Grand Prismatic in October
04:35:19 <Joe> I dont know wich they are midway appears about 1/4 way from right the other two are about center in this view not far apart
04:35:32 <GO GOGGLE> the steam builder at Biscuit is probably Sapphire Pool
04:36:38 <Joe> CC are you on?
04:36:53 <GO GOGGLE> not Sure Joe
04:37:08 <GO GOGGLE> not sure about steam clouds or CC :)
04:37:37 <Joe> next time I see them I'll screenshot them
04:38:51 <CraigC> Sapphire is right in line with Oblong and Arty
04:39:06 <CraigC> Grand Prismatic is just barely left of Solitary
04:39:45 <Joe> I was checking for CC as I wanted ti shift the view slightly left
04:40:26 <Joe> I did not want to step on toes as I did last nighr Graham
04:40:46 <GO GOGGLE> np
04:40:54 <Joe> Castle
04:41:00 <CraigC> caslte
04:42:08 <Joe> Hi CC
04:42:13 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning everyone
04:42:20 <ynpvisitorCC> I just took the cam
04:42:43 <Joe> Great!1 I can relax now :)
04:42:58 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
04:43:02 <ynpvisitorCC> thanks for all posts...I see I missed BH
04:43:58 <Joe> I came close to missing it, was in an OF window
04:44:01 <CraigC> Joe, here is another map with some plots;
04:44:15 <CraigC> hey CC
04:44:58 <ynpvisitorCC> morning Craig
04:45:39 <Joe> Thanks Craig
04:48:32 <Joe> I fell asleep and missed a Daisy and OF last night :(
04:50:08 <CraigC> and just in case anyone was curious, Steamboat Geyser would be just right of Solitary ;)
04:50:25 <GO GOGGLE> good set of Norris reports, good to see SB has some water now
04:50:39 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning Graham
04:50:47 <GO GOGGLE> could be building quicker than i expected
04:50:52 <GO GOGGLE> morning CC
04:52:56 <CraigC> Janet reported an Osprey flying over Grand
05:30:30 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
05:30:56 <LindaG> ynpvisitorCC, hi
05:31:10 <ynpvisitorCC> hi
05:33:17 <Joe> Nice steam from PMG and South Eastern Group
05:35:05 <ynpvisitorCC> I can't zoom in on the animals and it driving me crazy
05:35:47 <KittyM*> `Hi CC & Linda. I sure hope they can fix that zoom!
05:35:55 <LindaG> KittyM*, hi
05:36:29 <CraigC> hey Kitty
05:36:33 <LindaG> Yes, that zoom is annoying, we could see so much more
05:36:51 <LindaG> Lion
05:36:55 <LindaG> May e
05:37:24 <LindaG> I guess just a roar
05:37:52 <ynpvisitorCC> been steaming for quite awhile
05:38:45 <LindaG> Bison
05:38:58 <ChrisO> doggies :)
05:39:17 <ynpvisitorCC> just playing with the zoom
05:39:27 <ynpvisitorCC> sorry for the burry views
05:40:14 <ynpvisitorCC> nothing helps
05:40:40 <ynpvisitor103> Sounded like Friday was the basin “pause” at Norris where everything slows down for a day or two.
05:42:00 <ynpvisitor103> It will be nice when the graphs are back & we can see those “pauses”.
05:42:04 <GO GOGGLE> not sure theres enough information to say that.SB was quiet .. ut not much else reported and it looks like people didnt stay or walk far
05:42:15 <CraigC> steam coming from left of Artemisia
05:42:21 <GO GOGGLE> what do you mean by "pause"?
05:43:26 <ynpvisitor103> When the graphs dip down- about a weekly cycle.
05:44:19 <GO GOGGLE> a lot of activity was reprted yesterday, but that was in part because there were observers
05:44:36 <ynpvisitor103> Many features slow down for about a day. Porkchop is usually a day or two before Steamboat.
05:45:26 <ynpvisitor103> Hopefully the graphs will come back up soon.
05:46:00 <GO GOGGLE> i am not seeing a weekly cycle on the logger data before they stopped
05:46:39 <GO GOGGLE> Porkchop is drained due to the disturbance, so that rule probably doesnt work now
05:47:40 <GO GOGGLE> i think the disturbance breaks the old pattern
05:48:08 <GO GOGGLE> someone could look at last years disturbance to see what happened i guess
05:49:06 <GO GOGGLE> hard to see Daisy
05:49:31 <ynpvisitor103> Porkchop graph used to show the cycle clearly in 2017 and before, It was harder to read last year.
05:52:03 <ynpvisitor103> Interesting, though, that there is a cycle of ebb and flow at Norris.
05:53:36 <GO GOGGLE> could be like the geyser hill cycled ... that sometimes but not always show changes in behavior
06:03:42 <ChrisO> was sprinkler going? or am i seeing things?
06:05:28 <Joe> Yes Sprinkler was ie
06:10:59 <Joe> the prediction for daisy stinks!, Daisy was probably ~0730 next Daisy ~ 0940
06:11:59 <ynpvisitorCC> thanks...lit's been hard to see with the steam from other geysers
06:12:32 <Joe> Grand if it stays early will be within ~c 30 min
06:12:56 <ynpvisitorCC> yeap
06:14:08 <ynpvisitorCC> I think Janet is there and I have not seen any turbans posted
06:21:41 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, is that Rift ie?
06:21:55 <ynpvisitor999®> seems off for Spas' spot
06:29:52 <CraigC> I can't tell on google earth what the steam could be to over the trees to the right of where Riverside would be
06:41:42 <ynpvisitor98> bulger
06:42:52 <Joe> 6 hours on Grand so far
06:45:00 <ynpvisitor98> does it seem reasonable to hold off on posting a rift time from ambiguous steam until there is ground verification of what that steam really is?
06:49:57 <ynpvisitorCC> Again, if Janet is really at Grand she would have posted rift on GT
06:54:04 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand ie
06:59:05 <GO GOGGLE> may be less people aound as its raining, wet road at West Gate
07:00:20 <GO GOGGLE> I am guessing Janet isnt at Grand as theres no post
07:01:17 <ynpvisitorCC> Sorry...OF window
07:02:03 <GO GOGGLE> a few hardy peeps there
07:02:42 <GO GOGGLE> there were 10 confirmed tornados in VA on Friday, thats a lot for u
07:04:30 <ChrisO> 10...last i checked was 4 lol
07:05:00 <Joe> Sometimes the geysers timing is terrible with the four views on this camera, it is one of the main reasons I really like the old camera
07:07:07 <Joe> Move this camera and it's radio to OFL and we might have something.
07:12:05 <Joe> I'm sure the money spent and the politicking done to get this camera moved to where it is will keep it here.
07:14:40 <ynpvisitor> I like it. Just need to keep working on improving the static image and educating.
07:14:44 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
07:15:36 <GO GOGGLE> its a good vew but just harder from a cam op/gazing position
07:15:45 <ynpvisitor> And for the record, I have seen more OF' eruptions with the new location then I have in the last 4 years.
07:15:57 <GO GOGGLE> in summer we will see times posted that will help get to Lion and other geysers
07:16:36 <Mike J> I know its not perfect, I know its a struggle getting everything, but, wow, the views.
07:16:37 <ynpvisitorCC> Graham..Kent said he would be here for his shift tonight
07:18:10 <ynpvisitor> If you want easy, they should just put up as many static cams as they need to cover the features. Of' cam, hill cam, and back basin cam, and be done with it.
07:19:06 <ynpvisitorCC> Not enough T1 lines
07:21:16 <GO GOGGLE> ok, i am planning on being on only 1000-1300, then headed out
07:22:21 <Joe> I will be on 1300 to 1700
07:22:41 <GO GOGGLE> i don't think we are seeing any more OF eruptions than before with the exception of night-time
07:23:10 <GO GOGGLE> seeing less at night
07:24:48 <Joe> The only reason the OF eruptions at night are posted is the timing is right and there is a camop, other wise it would be all OF at night and nothing else.
07:25:48 <Joe> cam down
07:26:15 <CraigC> "troubled" that kills me
07:26:21 <Joe> coming back
07:39:19 <Joe> Daisy ~0940
07:47:31 <ynpvisitor999®> can we have a quick pan to Riverside?
07:50:43 <Joe> Jarno, this is why I do not like this cam, 4 views as opposed to one watching a hil with no predictable geysers and minning other predictable geysers
07:51:12 <Joe> Hill* Missing*
07:53:44 <Joe> Night is tough trying to get views of the erupting geysers switching between 3 views, and I do miss some
07:54:22 <Joe> But who cares about night
07:57:10 <ynpvisitor999®> for the larger, less frequent geysers I do care about the night, but otherwise, not really
07:58:37 <ynpvisitorCC> have a nice day everyone
07:58:44 <ynpvisitor999®> cya CC
07:59:08 <Joe> Bye CC
08:02:32 <GO GOGGLE> riverside
08:05:04 <GO GOGGLE> probably missed another Daisy
08:05:41 <GO GOGGLE> no in park eruption times :(
08:08:08 <GO GOGGLE> will try and find the next one
08:08:33 <LindaG> That's a cool view
08:23:45 <GO GOGGLE> lc
08:29:48 <GO GOGGLE> Lion is splashy
08:31:18 <GO GOGGLE> we have an E time for Daisy
08:40:54 <lori lurking> maybe already mentioned, but a long long at the west gate.
08:41:53 <GO GOGGLE> people getting a late start today. doesnt look its back to the end of the picture tho?
08:42:59 <lori lurking> moving along when I refreshed it. Maybe everyone had a big Easter breakfast after church first.
08:45:12 <GO GOGGLE> collecting money will slow them down today
08:49:39 <lori lurking> true. looks like only 2 open.
08:49:56 <ynpvisitor93> 25 yards is close. Rangers will probably pull it farther away from the rod. (100 yds)
08:50:15 <lori lurking> Thanks for working the holiday. Not the prettiest of days, but always good to see the basin.
08:53:41 <ynpvisitor93> 37° fog and rain is cold
08:54:37 <GO GOGGLE> lc
08:58:12 <lori lurking> third line open, lines down. such a short day in the park to me, but then, is there ever enough time for me?
09:03:32 <GO GOGGLE> backup gone at W gate
09:31:31 <LindaG> Hi betty
09:31:41 <Betty> hi Linda
09:32:48 <CraigC> uh oh, a certain youtuber is going to declare an earthquake at Norris and that it is a cover-up when it doesn't get listed at USGS
09:33:28 <CraigC> hey Betty
09:33:40 <Betty> hi CraigC
09:35:32 <ynpvisitor41> Can you explain that CraigC?
09:35:38 <LindaG> Gorgeous weather here in Jersey. The birds are singing. Doesnt look real inviting there.
09:36:49 <CraigC> ynpvisitor41, depends.... are you that youtuber that plays to the gullible conspiracy crowd?
09:38:23 <ynpvisitor41> me ha ha No! How can you cover up an EQ?
09:39:27 <CraigC> ynpvisitor41, this person has a youtube channel, and they give their own very loose interpretation of seismic data, and I believe that person also lurks in this chat
09:40:34 <ynpvisitor41> how did they think USGS could hide an EQ?
09:40:54 <GO GOGGLE> they dont need a reason
09:41:07 <GO GOGGLE> they just state things like that for maximum impact
09:41:10 <CraigC> I saw a video from them a few days ago where they showed screenshots of seismos like YNM with the red data prints, and declared that each red line indicated an earthquake
09:41:34 <GO GOGGLE> they generate clickbait
09:42:11 <CraigC> then compared to the USGS page that listed recent quakes, and since the quakes from the red lines weren't listed, alas conspiracy cover-up
09:43:11 <GO GOGGLE> i refuse to click on their stuff because i dont want them paid more for crap postings
09:43:27 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
09:43:40 <ynpvisitor41> strange
09:43:51 <CraigC> I had a moment of weakness ;)
09:44:00 <ynpvisitor41> lol
09:45:19 <GO GOGGLE> :thumbsdown:
09:45:52 <ynpvisitor999®> I find these conspiracy videos cringeworthy
09:46:25 <ynpvisitor41> if it keeps fewer people from coming to YNP - let them have at it
09:46:49 <GO GOGGLE> Three Crater time ..... maybe the pool isnt as cold as Micah thought?
09:47:34 <ynpvisitor999®> I did find the Round note the other day very interesting
09:48:26 <GO GOGGLE> yeah, would be good for that area to come to life
09:49:10 <ynpvisitor999®> a group-wide energy surge would be even better I bet :)
10:05:37 <ynpvisitor33> I wonder why Micah did not report that Three Crater was active?
10:06:14 <GO GOGGLE> i am assuming he didnt see it as he said the crater was dark in his Mugwump comment
10:07:45 <ynpvisitor33> Can it be that dark if Three Crater is active?
10:08:05 <GO GOGGLE> i think the answr has to be yes
10:08:06 <ynpvisitor33> It’s smaller yet still creates a disturbance
10:08:29 <GO GOGGLE> unless the crater is two-tone
10:09:11 <ynpvisitor33> Very odd
10:09:35 <GO GOGGLE> or Micah forgot to take off his sunglasses
10:10:13 <ynpvisitor33> Nothing due in the basin, Dan S night camp out there awhile
10:10:36 <GO GOGGLE> 9m interval
10:10:52 <GO GOGGLE> and 12
10:10:59 <GO GOGGLE> might move the cam there in a bit
10:11:27 <ynpvisitor33> It’s behind trees
10:11:55 <GO GOGGLE> have we had a confirmed eruption when the cam was pointing there?
10:13:20 <ynpvisitor33> well you can test it, yet those trees block it
10:14:16 <ynpvisitor999®> hello Daisy
10:15:21 <GO GOGGLE> of
10:16:04 <GO GOGGLE> can move cam after oF
10:20:10 <ynpvisitor999®> splash
10:20:34 <ynpvisitor999®> as good as primed I think
10:22:33 <GO GOGGLE> i dont see a car there
10:26:37 <GO GOGGLE> now?
10:28:30 <GO GOGGLE> i wish he had stayed or another eruption
10:38:33 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
10:38:34 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:38:35 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:38:36 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:38:57 <Betty> yeah
10:39:49 <kcmule> nice
10:40:15 <ynpvisitor999®> it's actually quite large if you compare it with the people on the boardwalk at Bee during the eruption
10:40:18 <LindaG> Real nice, delay is good sometimes
10:41:12 <CraigC> dang, just missed it
10:41:41 <CraigC> saw the last bit of steam, that's it
10:42:06 <Betty> bummer
10:44:25 <CraigC> wait, does Aurum appear just left of Doublet?
10:44:48 <GO GOGGLE> yes ... behind left side of it
10:45:04 <CraigC> yeah, I looked at steam between Pump and Giantess.... duh
10:45:47 <ynpvisitor999®> I think Bee's next eruption will be @ 0139±2h based on its two most recent closed intervals. Might go shorter as well, if I take into consideration the last few presumed closed intervals
10:55:16 <GO GOGGLE> heading out ....... have a great evening
10:55:51 <GO GOGGLE> i think Joe is taking it .... even th away
10:56:10 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Graham
10:58:37 <Betty> bye Graham
11:07:25 <Betty> depression
11:11:31 <Betty> rain?
11:13:35 <ynpvisitor81> How does one observe Cliff ie and 1 min earlier see spasmodic?
11:13:49 <Betty> DanS switches from Spasmodic toCliff
11:14:14 <Betty> hhaha, just read the same, 81
11:15:04 <Betty> maybe he meant Spouter
11:16:46 <ynpvisitor81> That would fit with Jagged and Ragged observations
11:17:03 <ynpvisitor81> Probably should get flagged
11:18:11 <Betty> person off trail
11:18:48 <CraigC> Betty, where
11:19:12 <Betty> he´s gone now.
11:19:27 <Betty> ahh, he detoured that bison
11:21:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Doggie off trail
11:27:40 <Joe> We need a wiper button
11:28:29 <Joe> a herd of bipeds
11:29:02 <Betty> C-tours
11:29:59 <LindaG> So much for a clean dome
11:31:49 <Betty> is this dome heated as the other was?
11:32:39 <ynpvisitor103> wow, without a wiper this dome will be a nightmare in winter and in any rain
11:33:03 <LindaG> Didnt know other one was heated
11:33:18 <CraigC> at least this one is easily accessed, and I am sure something will get worked out with the Inn staff over time to help keep it in better shape than the last one. I am optimistic. :)
11:33:24 <ynpvisitor103> hard to believe there is a wiper on it yet it is unusable. There should be a way to make it so the fluid is not needed
11:33:52 <ynpvisitor103> Craig C, except over 6 months of the year, no cleaning EVER come winter
11:35:02 <ynpvisitor103> easily accessed from May to October and then accessible until Xanterra leaves park early Nov, then not accessible...
11:35:46 <CraigC> do you think that will make this one worse than the previous? I'm new here, so trying to hope for the best
11:35:49 <Joe> Have the OFI bell captian run to the roof and give it a wipe
11:36:01 <ynpvisitor103> not there today
11:36:18 <ynpvisitor103> Inn opens first weekend in May
11:36:51 <ynpvisitor103> Dan S sure did make good time between Spasmodic and Cliff!
11:44:04 <CraigC> so if you are looking at an entry in GT, is there a quick way to see it on a map?
11:45:21 <Betty> click on the name, choose links and then show location on the map
11:45:27 <CraigC> looking for unng-bsb-2
11:46:14 <Betty> now you can go there directly :-)
11:46:30 <CraigC> Betty, thanks!!!
12:04:35 <LindaG> Snow
12:05:23 <LindaG> Or really white rain 😊
12:08:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Was 92° here yesterday.
12:08:49 <LindaG> Wow that will warm the bones 😊
12:09:08 <Betty> heating up for summer, Kevin?
12:10:13 <Joe> Betty, I think this dome is equipped with a heater, as it has solution bottles for cleaning and would need heaters for that in winter, iMHO
12:10:58 <Joe> now weather they are hooked up, who knows?
12:12:12 <Joe> weather,
12:13:53 <Joe> whether*
12:16:07 <Joe> I wonder whether the weather will change :)
12:19:09 <Betty> whether the weather is hot, whether the weather is wet, we must wheather the weather, whether we like it or not ;-)
12:19:44 <Joe> :)
12:19:55 <Betty> hope I got that one correct
12:20:18 <ynpvisitor999®> oh dear goodness. We're at that point in time where tongue-twisters are the amongst the most exciting happenings of the day
12:20:25 <Joe> A+, 100%
12:20:27 <ynpvisitor999®> but I like it :)
12:21:26 <Betty> hehehe, got this one from my English teacher when I was 13
12:21:57 <Joe> Daisy soon, move drops, move
12:42:44 <Joe> Daisy

12:58:57 <ynpvisitor81> thanks for that Micah!!
12:59:58 <ynpvisitor81> hoping for 0 "no eruption yet" posts this year
13:00:15 <Micah - Dorm> I thought about opening with that lol
13:01:15 <Joe> come on Grand OF window coming up
13:07:54 <Micah - Dorm> I briefly considered going to Grand but then remembered how wet and miserable it is.
13:08:48 <Micah - Dorm> Might try to catch Castle tonight.
13:09:15 <Joe> I found grand 1442
13:13:39 <ChrisO> raining/snowing and still 1000 people out there :)
13:13:55 <ynpvisitor72> When do you work Micah? Did you have 3 days off?
13:14:23 <ynpvisitor999®> It looks like Steamboat might go at the 14-day interval mark or even sooner :)
13:15:52 <Micah - Dorm> No. I trained yesterday and I'm training the rest of this week.
13:16:40 <ynpvisitor72> Will you have time to get to SB?
13:19:06 <Micah - Dorm> I doubt it.
13:19:25 <Micah - Dorm> Work comes first.
13:19:33 <ynpvisitor72> Well you will learn to drive a bus!
13:20:16 <ynpvisitor72> Dan S is there, maybe he’ll put some time to it
13:21:03 <ynpvisitor72> Did you get Paintbrush for your dorm Micah?
13:25:37 <ChrisO> anyone seen any doggies since this morning? :)

14:03:17 <ynpvisitor95> Lion
14:03:53 <ynpvisitor95> although I would prefer a bee
14:05:36 <ynpvisitor95> so is this Lion the initial?
14:06:47 <ynpvisitor95> pretty good breeze when Lion's steam can blow half way across the hill
14:07:09 <Joe> I believe it may be, although I have not watched the hill very much, It acts ini
14:07:37 <ynpvisitor95> looks like more than a 2mph wind
14:07:47 <Joe> based on duration
14:12:11 <CraigC> BA?

16:18:52 <ynpvisitor23> -76
16:19:53 <ChrisO> Mountains will see accumulation, but snow level is at 7400+ for the area
16:20:21 <ynpvisitor10> cam op just did a close up of snowflakes, yet hoping no accumulation happens
16:20:40 <ynpvisitor10> you can see the flakes in this view too

16:36:46 <ChrisO> Daisy?
16:36:52 <ChrisO> or is that lion
16:38:41 <ynpvisitor111> I think it's lion
16:38:53 <ChrisO> derpy derp...forgot Daisy was further to the left. lol
17:27:18 <ynpvisitor> Does the wiper work? I heard the new dome has a wiper?
17:28:48 <ynpvisitor111> Dave must have told a big whopper about the wiper. :)
17:29:45 <ynpvisitor> Or the wiper is off his old delivery truck.
17:31:49 <ynpvisitor23> lion
17:31:49 <ynpvisitor111> That's it - :lol:
17:33:01 <ynpvisitor> I am on delay, is it a real lion', or just puffs?
17:33:42 <ynpvisitor23> just puffs
17:34:22 <ynpvisitor> Must be indigestion from a big Easter dinner.
17:35:41 <ynpvisitor111> I wish Giantess would get some indigestion soon. She's been keeping it in tooo long. :)
17:41:32 <ynpvisitor10> Lion 1940 ie
18:08:33 <ynpvisitor103> Was lion 1940ie, not on GT
18:09:13 <ynpvisitor103> Oooh OT Kevin.....get it done
18:13:45 <ynpvisitor71> I haven’t been watching that closely, has of gone yet?
18:14:25 <ynpvisitor10> 2014
18:41:46 <ynpvisitor10> Lion 2241
18:41:53 <ynpvisitor10> 2041
18:54:51 <CraigC> did anyone else see the Lion? it hasn't been entered
18:56:13 <ynpvisitor111> I saw it around 20:42
18:56:21 <ynpvisitor111> Not a logger anymore though
18:56:27 <CraigC> looks like Lion was called twice and not entered
18:56:54 <CraigC> I'll log the 20:421 then
18:56:58 <CraigC> 20:41
18:57:21 <ynpvisitor111> I also saw one approx at 19:43
18:58:11 <CraigC> ok, I'll log that too, thanks
18:59:01 <ynpvisitor111> You are welcome Craig - Thanks for doing that.
18:59:08 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
19:02:26 <CraigC> ynpvisitor111, did you also see Lion around 1835 when it was called here?
19:03:47 <CraigC> *1836
19:05:59 <ynpvisitor111> Yes I did see that one
19:06:14 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
19:06:34 <ynpvisitor111> You thought it might be Daisy
19:06:45 <ynpvisitor111> but remember too far to the left
20:36:42 <ynpvisitor28> Are we even looking at OF???
20:38:04 <ynpvisitor111> no - if I'm correct the extreme left is where Grand is supposed to be. The right should show part of geyser hill.
20:38:53 <ynpvisitor28> Shame, its a full moon tonight, time for bed...
20:39:23 <ynpvisitor111> The moon rises at 23:01 and it takes some time to light up the basin.
20:39:44 <ynpvisitor111> Sleep well #28 - have a good night.
20:58:42 <ynpvisitor91> Think 28 had a burr in his butt.
20:59:54 <ynpvisitor111> impatient, imo but yep a burr
21:01:27 <ynpvisitor91> Not well informed either.
21:02:12 <ynpvisitor111> maybe a newbie who just found this place = not well informed. :)
21:08:15 <Kevin L™🌵> If he thought it should be aimed at OF he has probably been on the site before
21:10:57 <Kevin L™🌵> With cloud cover I think it is going to be a dark knight.
21:11:30 <ynpvisitor111> Kevin, you're right about him being here before & yes a dark night :(
21:13:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like something is ie down there.
21:14:11 <ynpvisitor111> Yes, it looks like there is.
21:15:21 <ynpvisitor111> Y'all have the eagle eyes, not I.
21:16:19 <Kevin L™🌵> It just looked like a white area
21:17:22 <ynpvisitor111> At least there are geeks in the basin, that helps if some big feature was erupting.
21:18:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Yep. Been able to mine much more data from this cam than I expected.
21:19:22 <ynpvisitor111> I was totally surprised with what we can see. Glad all of you can mine that much more data. Yay!
21:25:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Well I guess I better get some sleep befor the 0300 cough wakes me up. Good knight.
21:26:47 <ynpvisitor111> I hope you sleep well, sorry is wasn't the best Knight :(
21:27:08 <ynpvisitor111> Good Knight Kevin
21:27:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Pretty frustrating to lsoe that way.
21:28:02 <ynpvisitor111> Yes, it is - They'll win the series though. :)
21:32:41 <Kevin L™🌵> I was hoping they would win tonight so I could watch crab fishing Tuesday.
21:33:39 <ynpvisitor111> That extra little frustration
