01:49:39 <LindaGp> It takes a while to feel better but it will happen.
01:49:54 <ynpvisitor112> this Penumonia is kicking my butt
01:50:41 <LindaGp> Had it it a few years ago and it is nasty.
01:51:17 <LindaGp> At least you are somewhere where they can stay on top of it

02:10:50 <CraigC> Joe was here?
02:12:43 <LindaGp> Yes he was
02:13:16 <LindaGp> Said the pneumonia was kicking his butt
02:13:31 <LindaGp> He was still in hospital
02:14:28 <LindaGp> Positive side hes well enough to get on the Internet, that's a good thing
02:15:10 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
02:15:33 <LindaGp> Good morning
02:15:59 <CraigC> I've turnedinto my mom, I was worried all day yesterday about him
02:16:05 <CraigC> morning Linda
02:16:28 <LindaGp> Lol that's a good thing
02:17:12 <CraigC> lol, it got to be whenever my parents went on a trip, I made them call me when they got there
02:17:23 <CraigC> role reversal
02:17:40 <LindaGp> He said he doesn't feel better yet. But from experience I know any respiratory illness takes forever
02:17:50 <CraigC> ughhhh
02:17:59 <LindaGp> We turn into the parents
02:21:05 <LindaG> Trying to clear up space on tablet, cant handle this site. Stared for ten minutes before I realized nothing was moving. 🙄
02:22:07 <ynpvisitor23> Didn't know Joe was ill
02:22:28 <ynpvisitor23> When did he go to the hospital?
02:22:32 <CraigC> I use an external hard drive for all my storage of photos and music and just have programs and apps on the tablet
02:23:52 <LindaG> ynpvisitor23, I think Tuesday, he has pneumonia
02:24:23 <ynpvisitor23> Sorry to hear that
02:24:41 <LindaG> CraigC, I u installed fqcebook app. That was taking almost a gig!!
02:25:26 <LindaG> ynpvisitor23, we've been worried about him so it was good to hear from him
02:44:50 <LindaG> Lc
03:02:46 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning everyone
03:03:00 <ynpvisitorCC> I just took the cam to get an OF time
03:07:05 <CraigC> hey CC
03:07:10 <LindaGp> Good morni g Cc
03:07:15 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning Craig
03:07:37 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning Linda
03:08:07 <ynpvisitorCC> Linda sending you a PM
03:11:18 <ynpvisitorCC> Thanks Linda...hate to leave of OF
03:11:59 <ynpvisitorCC> on OF
03:48:03 <LindaG> Bbl, time for a blood test
03:48:20 <CraigC> good luck
04:01:29 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
04:02:25 <GO GOLFING> the good news is i will see geysers in 1 month today
04:02:48 <CraigC> and the bad news, is you're going golfing
04:03:15 <GO GOLFING> well the CAPS are
04:03:22 <CraigC> ahhhh
04:04:30 <CraigC> hope things turn for the better in Norris over the next month
04:05:19 <CraigC> personally, I'd rather see Giant return to its more recent active pattern
04:06:26 <GO GOLFING> both are good, but SB rarely keeps active for long ... so i will go for SB. Giant is on and off active
04:07:10 <GO GOLFING> besides, Dave and Becca still need to see it
04:07:47 <GO GOLFING> wold be fun seeing Giant on the cam now tho
04:07:49 <CraigC> in my 2 upcoming trips, because of the people I will be with, I don't think I will be at Norris. But I am cheering for the rest of you
04:08:44 <GO GOLFING> well if SB goes its still worth heading up there to see steam phase and mixed phase if its still doing it
04:08:58 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
04:09:50 <CraigC> I'm sure my mom would be cool with walking down to SB on our way to Canyon, but not sitting very long watching dirt :)
04:11:44 <GO GOLFING> yeah its a hard spot to sit and wait, long walk, nothing else to watch, no easy bathroom to get to, and no guarantee you will see anything other than minors
04:12:41 <CraigC> whereas, if there were a GHP, I bet she would be cool hanging out in that area
04:13:49 <GO GOLFING> yeah other things to look at down there. does she walk or use a wheelchair? its a long way to Giant
04:16:08 <CraigC> she can outwalk me, she walks a mile or so a day with her friend
04:17:03 <GO GOLFING> ok, thats good. I was pushing my mom around in the wheelchair - she didnt like the altitude either
04:36:02 <ynpvisitor57> one bubbler active to left of bee
05:06:02 <CraigC> splash
05:08:17 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone!
05:08:36 <CraigC> hey Dave
05:08:39 <CraigC> hey Chris
05:09:14 <ChrisO> Morning Craig :)
05:10:05 <CraigC> hey Rice
05:12:14 <Rice> Morning everyone, No SB overnight, but notes make it sound close.
05:14:56 <CraigC> Dave from B™, are you still considering the drive to Norris
05:15:18 <CraigC> 2nd bubbler awake
05:19:36 <Dave from B™> My window passed....I'm out for a couple of weeks now. 4th annual market anniversary sale starts today
05:19:55 <CraigC> dang
05:21:11 <GO GOLFING> Mourning Dave
05:21:31 <Rice> Dave: That darn work thing gets in the way everytime!
05:21:31 <Mike J> Morning all. Love these morning views
05:21:58 <Dave from B™> Sorry, Graham. Caps looked really tired in OT
05:22:32 <GO GOLFING> yeah i know ..... Canes deserved to win ..... CAPS forgot to shoot at the Goal ... again
05:22:56 <GO GOLFING> amazing that all 4 division winners lost in first round
05:23:34 <GO GOLFING> Art-Dave matchup in the conference finals?
05:23:44 <Dave from B™> Yes, it is. Hockey playoffs are so much more unpredictable than any other sport
05:24:03 <Mike J> Agreed. One of the things I love about it is the parity in the playoffs
05:24:08 <Dave from B™> Rice, does get in the way!
05:24:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> I am over it now :)
05:35:00 <Dave from B™> We should be seeing new SB videos soon
05:37:40 <ynpvisitor111> OF
05:41:01 <LindaG> Nice view
05:41:09 <LindaG> Lovely light
05:41:20 <Chancellor> Good Morning all
05:41:43 <LindaG> Good morning to e eryone
05:41:51 <LindaG> Chancellor, hi
05:46:49 <LindaG> Dave from B™, did u see that Joe was on this morning for a couple of minutes?
05:47:50 <LindaG> Hi kat
05:48:32 <Dave from B™> No, how is he doing?
05:49:41 <LindaG> Hes still in hospital said the pneumonia was kicking his butt. But he was on the internet so that's a good thing.
05:50:11 <LindaG> Said he didnt feel better yet, but it will take time.
05:50:36 <Dave from B™> take 7-10 days to usually get back to normal after drugs kick in.
05:51:38 <LindaG> I get a lot of respiratory infections and they are difficult to shake.
05:51:39 <CraigC> grove steam
05:51:47 <CraigC> is ti erupting
05:52:21 <LindaG> Lc
05:52:40 <CraigC> is Graham still here
05:53:49 <LindaG> The grove eruptions I've seen are more like bursts
05:54:13 <CraigC> ok, thanks
05:54:58 <LindaG> Hehe I guess they are more like eruptions. You can see it rise.
05:56:54 <Dave from B™> It looks like snow is in the forecast for next week
06:07:00 <Dave from B™> Per Echinus logger, it looks like the past 2 days it has been draining and refilling more than the couple weeks prior
06:07:34 <Dave from B™> Per Pork Chop logger, temps have been the highest in a month the past 48-60 hours
06:07:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am here but not watching. with limited zoom its hard to see Grove splashing on the cam - its not very big splashing from Lion either
06:08:00 <CraigC> yeah, I looked at porky earlier
06:08:30 <Dave from B™> To a Norris novice like me, it would seem that the Big D effects are nearing the end.
06:08:42 <Dave from B™> GS, what do you think?
06:11:00 <Dave from B™> Can we get a quick look at Grand area. We are at just 12 hours.
06:11:12 <ynpvisitor90> doesn't look like echinus draining to me
06:12:12 <Dave from B™> 90, temps have dropped more often per day...what does that mean?
06:12:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope the big-D is ending ... but I am not a logger watcher
06:13:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> I think SB is taking longer after recovering - I am curious if the trough is dredged yet
06:15:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> notes the last couple of days have not mentioned the trough state
06:15:27 <CraigC> hey Bill
06:15:35 <Bill> Morning
06:18:15 <Kat> Morning all!
06:18:30 <CraigC> hey Kat
06:18:51 <Kat> Hi CraigC
06:20:30 <J. Lawrencium> Lots of hooved animals on Electric Peak cam
06:22:20 <CraigC> wow
06:22:26 <CraigC> hey Jimbo
06:25:36 <CraigC> hey Kevin
06:26:22 <Kat> Morning Kevin :)
06:29:32 <J. Lawrencium> Hi CraigC
06:32:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
06:40:24 <ynpvisitor90> Dave from B™, sorry, was called away. Here's what a drain looks like
06:40:24 <ynpvisitor90>
06:44:29 <Dave from B™> 90, correct me if I'm wrong. On the left of your graph are eruptions followed by a drain?
06:49:46 <ynpvisitor90> right. I got carried away looking, let me go back to that one
06:52:48 <LindaG> Hey kat, good morning
06:53:12 <Kat> Morning!
06:53:26 <ynpvisitor112> Castle
06:53:28 <CraigC> :castle:
06:56:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> 16.5 days ... come on SB!
06:57:29 <Dave from B™> 425 pm on 4/25
06:57:47 <Dave from B™> Eric, that is an "EXACT" prediction:)
06:59:49 <ynpvisitor112> Since when has a full 60 seconds been "EXACT"?
07:01:06 <Casey> Morning
07:01:07 <Dave from B™> hahaha...when I typed that, I knew I had opened myself to that comment. Way to go, 112
07:01:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> which year Dave?
07:01:21 <CraigC> hey Casey
07:01:50 <Casey> Hi Craig. Anything excitement this morning?
07:03:45 <Casey> Split Cone?
07:04:46 <Kat> Yes
07:09:23 <Dave from B™> Today, Graham
07:15:55 <Casey> OF
07:16:15 <Dave from B™> nice
07:16:19 <Casey> Kind of choppy, but I like this view
07:32:07 <Casey> Riverside ie
07:32:26 <Casey> I would guess ns, but I wasn't paying close attention
07:40:47 <ChrisO> doggie :)
07:42:43 <J. Lawrencium> I'll be back
07:42:56 <Kat> :)
07:43:04 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
07:43:37 <ChrisO> good morning :)
07:45:56 <ynpvisitor102> I thought the loop was open, isn't that white thing the sign I see in front of that tree?
07:46:20 <ynpvisitor102> good to see pump is still pumping
07:46:44 <Dave from B™> That may be the junction sign
07:49:57 <ynpvisitor102> If kevin would hop in his rock crusher, he could go visit Aurum and let us know.
07:49:58 <LindaG> Lc
07:50:12 <Colossus> I'm back - Colossus of Rhodium wouldn't fit
07:51:17 <ynpvisitor102> So that is the path to Solitary?
07:53:52 <Dave from B™> no, the junction sign and map where the upper GH trail and trail from grand divide
07:55:42 <Dave from B™> I believe the trail to Solitary is closed. So, there may be a sign up there as well. I can't see it on my little screen
07:57:05 <ChrisO> anyone know anything about the boreholes down near the lake?
07:58:37 <ynpvisitor999®> where did you read that? It may be boreholes from a scientific project. I recall there was a Caldera Chronicles article about Yellowstone Lake recently
07:59:32 <ChrisO> seismograph boreholes
07:59:48 <ChrisO> trying to find out how deep they are and if there susceptible to noise
08:00:22 <ynpvisitor90> where?
08:00:39 <Eric> Morning
08:01:14 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric
08:01:25 <Eric> Hi Dave
08:01:50 <Kat> Hi Eric
08:01:50 <Eric> I am here, BH can go now :-D
08:01:55 <Eric> Hi Kat
08:02:12 <Eric> Giantess too :-P
08:02:14 <Kevin L™🌵> I guess I get BH today
08:02:25 <ynpvisitor102> I have a feeling the bees already swarmed.
08:02:42 <Eric> Looks ready to me
08:02:54 <Eric> Could we have missed it?
08:03:06 <ynpvisitor102> I like your attitude.
08:03:10 <Dave from B™> A short Grand double interval overnight: 11h14m
08:03:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Anything is possible
08:04:07 <ynpvisitor102> I do not know, lots was not posted when i first checked gt this morning. Daisy has been orphaned.
08:04:28 <ynpvisitor102> peops by kevin
08:04:35 <ynpvisitor102> or big foots
08:05:16 <ynpvisitor102> Aliens in the steam.
08:05:54 <Eric> doggie
08:06:10 <Eric> wonder if he will cross the river?
08:06:27 <ChrisO> he was near the trail a little while ago
08:06:42 <Eric> He was wondering toward the firehole river
08:06:51 <ynpvisitor57> he is going back to the water
08:07:08 <Eric> I really want to see a heard cross the river
08:07:28 <ynpvisitor57> then you go to Hayden Valley
08:07:35 <Eric> haha
08:07:38 <ChrisO> i have seen maybe 8 at time, how many are usually in a herd?
08:08:08 <Eric> I want to see them cross the firehole in the UGB
08:08:15 <ynpvisitor102> You can see them cross at Madison.
08:08:42 <ynpvisitor57> have you seen any splashing from Beehive?
08:08:55 <ynpvisitor102> Anyone know the name of the snow gauge on the pass, i think it is bear tooth?
08:09:27 <ynpvisitor102> All i have seen out of bee is this.
08:09:52 <ynpvisitor102> Only on for bout an hour and doing other things
08:10:01 <ynpvisitor57> rats
08:10:11 <ynpvisitor57> probably went early this morning
08:10:56 <ynpvisitor102> How about it went last night and will go again this afternoon.
08:11:00 <ynpvisitor999®> Craig: - this is the article I was thinking about. It mentions that borehole strainmeters in Yellowstone are at a depth between 100 - 250 meters
08:11:01 <Kat> Bee was steaming quite a bit earlier. No splash that I saw. Kept checking, don't think it went already. I took cam at 0830
08:11:09 <ynpvisitor102> With a 10 min or more indy
08:11:44 <ynpvisitor57> bee should occasionally splash if it hasn't gone
08:12:30 <ynpvisitor57> it doesn't have to be frequent, but ...
08:14:32 <ChrisO> ty ynpvisitor999
08:14:48 <Eric> I checked static back to 5:45 and don't see an eruptioon
08:15:29 <Eric> Was the camera on the hill overnight?
08:15:45 <ynpvisitor57> no
08:22:49 <ynpvisitor57> ah bee is splashing now
08:24:19 <ynpvisitor57> if there has been no splashing seen until now, then my guess is bee erupted around 4 am
08:25:16 <ynpvisitor57> it is so white on the ground that I can't tell if that steam is coming from the bubbler
08:25:39 <ynpvisitor999®> cone is steaming, don't see bubblers (yet)
08:26:09 <fishynp> ChrisO, Here is the link to the info for the borehole at Grant (B944):
08:27:01 <fishynp> ChrisO, Here's the link for the borehole at Lake (B208):
08:27:53 <ynpvisitor57> I keep seeing flashes of white beside the cone, is bubbler farther to the right?
08:28:18 <ynpvisitor999®> splash
08:29:18 <ynpvisitor57> I think I am seeing the side of the cone that the sun is hitting with steam going acrost it
08:29:56 <ynpvisitor57> hope to bbl when an indy text arrives
08:30:11 <ynpvisitor999®> if you see flashes of white besides its cone, it's probably steam. It could be the bubblers, too. They appear in front and to the left of Bee's cone
08:39:03 <ynpvisitor999®> Indy
08:39:04 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:39:05 <ynpvisitor999®> .

08:53:09 <Colossus> They're both geysers
08:53:14 <ynpvisitor102> The ravens have the best view.
08:53:26 <Eric> The one eye Ravens?
08:53:27 <LindaG> Looks like a nice OF though
08:53:30 <ynpvisitor999®> for the gazers in-basin this is a nice dual I bet
08:53:30 <Eric> or three eyed
08:53:31 <Kitt> yes, but bee on static is just not the same
08:53:57 <Kitt> if they moved the static cam over a little bit then it would be better
08:54:21 <Eric> Yep...fix the time and tap it slightly to the left
08:54:35 <Kitt> I am surprised we didn't move over to catch fluffy on streaming, but thank you
08:54:40 <Eric> They wouldn't lose anything on the right either
08:54:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Bee > OF
08:55:02 <Kitt> that was a very wonderful birthday present
08:55:07 <LindaG> Certainly rarer
08:55:09 <Eric> Happy Birhtday!
08:55:20 <Eric> or Birthday :-P
08:55:20 <Betty> enjoy the rest of the day
08:55:29 <Kitt> you too
08:55:44 <Kitt> thank you Beehive
08:55:54 <LindaG> Kitt, happy bee birthday
08:56:36 <Steph> What a gorgeous sight!
08:56:39 <Teri> Nice way to start the day. Have a great one everybody!
08:56:48 <Kat> Happy Birthday Kitt!
08:56:55 <LindaG> Teri, you too!
08:57:00 <ynpvisitor102> Was looking at road conditions around Cooke City. A picture on their fb page of clearing snow in Glacier. Using an excavator to knock down drifts.
08:57:04 <LindaG> Steph, it was
08:57:13 <ynpvisitor102> Going to the Sun Road not open till June 22
08:57:37 <ynpvisitor102> Well enjoy the day.
08:57:52 <Betty> you too
08:57:53 <LindaG> ynpvisitor102, I'll be there on 21st, I hope it does open by then
08:58:32 <Eric> Nice...I don't doubt that it will take a while to clear all the snow up there
08:58:54 <Teri> Tks Linda!
09:00:49 <ChrisO> doggie
09:01:03 <ChrisO> actually i think that is the same one as earlier
09:05:49 <Eric> He went down to get a drink
09:06:11 <lori lurking> Going to the SUn Road posted they will not open beofre the 22 for road work
09:14:56 <Eric> We should be able to catch daisy before OF window
09:16:38 <LindaG> Eric, the latest there opened is July 1st. So I'm hoping the get it open the week I'm there
09:19:01 <Betty> cam down?
09:19:12 <ynpvisitor999®> working for me again
09:19:27 <Betty> yes
09:19:36 <Steph> Me too, though I had to refresh.
09:19:46 <ynpvisitor999®> and it's down again
09:19:54 <Betty> bah
09:30:22 <Betty> daisy
09:34:03 <Eric> Early
09:34:11 <Eric> I missed it :-(
09:34:19 <ynpvisitor999®> as per usual lately
09:34:51 <Eric> We should be due a lion series
09:35:43 <Eric> To me it is much harder to get a feel for what lion is up to from this angle.
10:01:55 <Steph> Well, I'm off, hope to see you later today!
10:02:03 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Steph
10:02:49 <Betty> bye Steph
10:11:40 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like boardwalk reconstruction is progressing quickly
10:12:46 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
10:12:48 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:12:48 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:12:49 <Betty> Aurum
10:12:49 <Betty> .
10:12:49 <ynpvisitor999®> .
10:12:50 <Betty> .
10:12:50 <Betty> .
10:13:04 <ynpvisitor999®> I nice one, almost no steam blocking it
10:13:05 <Dave from B™> nice
10:13:33 <Betty> looks great
10:13:38 <Dave from B™> This would be a great view of Plume
10:14:00 <Betty> I miss Plume
10:18:34 <ynpvisitor999®> Oh hi fluffball
10:18:35 <Betty> OF
10:21:11 <ynpvisitor53> we could zoom in...
10:21:23 <ynpvisitor53> OF gets no love from the cam ops
10:23:41 <Eric> Probably because it goes off about 10 times a day and the eruptions look mostly the same.
10:28:30 <ynpvisitor999®> barely any short eruptions, too, so there's that
10:31:47 <Eric> castle ie
10:32:04 <Eric> or not....weird, saw spike
10:36:37 <ynpvisitor999®> "it does that" :P
10:37:14 <LindaG> Is that a doggie lying around out there.
10:37:48 <Kevin L™🌵> This Spike?
10:38:21 <LindaG> 😆
10:38:32 <Kevin L™🌵> It is a fuzzy blur
10:39:06 <LindaG> There he is, wheres ChrisO
10:40:08 <LindaG> Doggie broke the cam
10:42:02 <LindaG> Apparently doggie only broke my cam
10:42:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Did mine too. Even took controls down
10:43:17 <LindaG> Oh ok, so it wasnt just me. My tablet has been having problems with this site. So I never know
10:44:33 <LindaG> Wow is it quiet
10:44:47 <Kevin L™🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
10:45:17 <LindaG> Little steam from castle that's it
10:45:53 <Eric> We should have grand very soon
10:46:07 <Eric> Next 15 minutes or so
10:46:16 <LindaG> 👍
10:46:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Unless Dave is watching.
10:47:57 <ynpvisitor999®> if Dave is watching, it'd explain the flat YNM trace :(
10:48:20 <Eric> Flat YNM trace is due to Steamboat not erupting :-P
10:48:21 <ynpvisitor999®> didn't know he could affect SB from such a large distance
10:48:51 <Eric> Anyone catch when grotto quit?
10:49:11 <ynpvisitor999®> nope
10:52:15 <Dave from B™> SB should erupt when I'm not there
10:52:43 <Artt> Well I was way off in my SB prediction :(
10:52:46 <Dave from B™> Grand in next 10 minutes
10:53:30 <Kevin L™🌵> How is the sale going Dave?
10:54:26 <Eric> Maybe this year, SB is waiting for you Dave?
10:54:33 <ynpvisitor44> You ready for the next round of winter Dave?
10:54:35 <Eric> Different year...different behaviors
10:56:23 <Dave from B™> 44, Billings winter is over. Lows of 31-33 don't product ground sticking snow
10:56:34 <Dave from B™> produce*
10:57:01 <ynpvisitor44> they say 2 to 4 " in Cody
10:57:48 <Dave from B™> That's 1700' higher in elevation. makes sense
10:59:33 <Kevin L™🌵> 91° melts snow real quick.
11:00:21 <Eric> I have a buddy whos sister is moving down to henderson I might be making a hiking trip down there this fall
11:00:45 <Eric> 999 is a quitter!
11:00:53 <Kevin L™🌵> There are quite a few good hiking places here.
11:01:32 <Eric> Yep...I might drive over to Utah and do some hikes there as well
11:01:46 <Eric> Lot closer for me to drive from vegas then here :-D
11:02:12 <Eric> I really really want to hike angels landing now.
11:02:31 <Eric> I like ridgeline hikes
11:02:37 <Dave from B™> Eric, I would at least like to go to Scout's Landing
11:03:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Do you like hitting your thumb with a 32 oz waffle faced hammer too?
11:03:56 <ynpvisitor999®> there's a Ridgeline Geyser?
11:04:06 <Kevin L™🌵> There are some just down from Hoover Dave with hot springs.
11:04:07 <Eric> Nope...not into pain
11:04:13 <Eric> Grand
11:04:13 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
11:04:14 <ynpvisitor999®> ie
11:04:15 <Eric> .
11:04:15 <Eric> .
11:04:16 <Eric> .
11:04:27 <Eric> I think the cam froze and missed start
11:04:35 <ynpvisitor44> Grand
11:04:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes it did Eric.
11:04:49 <Eric> and froze again...
11:04:55 <LindaG> Yay
11:05:05 <Dave from B™> It's the afternoon frreze
11:05:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Not sure why autttoscrewup got Dave out of Dam.
11:05:14 <Eric> Good thing we have a "non-cheezy" wireless connection
11:05:33 <Dave from B™> haha Kevin
11:06:00 <Eric> I think the connection is going to get worse as more people are in the basin
11:06:45 <Eric> Hoover Dave has a ring to it!
11:06:46 <LindaG> There it is!
11:07:05 <LindaG> Or was ☹
11:07:10 <Eric> If everyone closes their eyes, the cam will start working!
11:07:47 <LindaG> Doesnt like the afternoon
11:07:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I assume Ridgeline isn't the same as UNNG-FTN-6 ('Stalactite')?
11:10:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice spikes when cam is working.
11:10:38 <Eric> Yep...imagine if the focus actually worked!
11:10:41 <Dave from B™> Maybe this is NPS's way of trying to get more bandwidth for OF
11:11:55 <Eric> I think they should contract with verizon for a fat wireless linkup between UGB and Washburn.
11:12:24 <Eric> I think Washburn has the bandwidth going in/out to support all of UGB
11:13:28 <Eric> ~8m
11:13:43 <Eric> maybe 9 or 10 even
11:14:19 <Dave from B™> off to sweat after Grand
11:14:36 <Eric> Enjoy Dave....I got mine in early :-D
11:15:06 <Eric> Headed up to hike Dog Mountain on Saturday
11:15:25 <Eric> and done
11:19:47 <Betty> pperson off bw
11:20:06 <Betty> ? at Depression?
11:20:47 <ynpvisitor999®> if only the cam would co-operate
11:20:51 <Betty> cam down
11:21:19 <ynpvisitor82> Seismo is not updating either - last update was 12:49.....
11:21:54 <Betty> someone is there
11:22:14 <Eric> walking back
11:22:24 <Eric> I think that might be Bill
11:22:33 <Eric> he said he was going to be in UGB today...right?
11:22:43 <ynpvisitor999®> it did look like he had some kind of orange vest on
11:23:24 <ynpvisitor999®> if only the cam would have better focus than this blurry nonsense...
11:23:26 <Eric> Wish the camera focus was fixed...then we could actually see
11:23:32 <Eric> :-P
11:27:34 <Eric> person out on hill again
11:27:39 <Eric> I don't see a vest
11:27:48 <Betty> now he´s out over Marmot cave
11:28:00 <Eric> I don't think that is Bill!
11:28:21 <Eric> They are at Lion now
11:28:32 <Eric> ohh, maybe they do have vests
11:28:34 <Eric> yep
11:28:38 <Eric> and gear
11:29:15 <Eric> Be careful Bill!
11:29:19 <ynpvisitor999®> else they would have been very inventive tourists to get up close and personal (and overheated) with springs and geysers
11:29:36 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe for the thermal inventory?
11:29:43 <Eric> Yep, cam should probably avoid Bill
11:30:11 <Eric> They were checking and replacing sensors
11:31:10 <Kevin L™🌵> I did let VEC know just in case.
11:31:24 <Betty> thx, Kevin
11:32:53 <Eric> Yep...I assume Bill notified VEC that he was out and about, so they should be good to handle it
11:33:11 <Eric> runch time ragy
11:34:13 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Casey and GE
11:35:08 <Casey> Afternoon 999
11:35:28 <GE ©> ditto
11:35:54 <Betty> hi Casey and GE ©
11:36:05 <GE ©> Evening. Betty
11:36:28 <Kevin L™🌵> I wonder how many kids know what a ditto machine is.
11:44:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Whew, 98° outside now.
11:45:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy very soon
11:45:55 <GE ©> Low 70's here on the coast
11:48:25 <ynpvisitor67> How about a quick look at the boardwalk construction?
11:49:32 <GE ©> Kevin, article in the LA Times about your neck of the woods
11:50:46 <Kevin L™🌵> That is the one GE
11:51:39 <GE ©> Ever done it? Too strenious for me now
11:52:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Back about 50 years ago....
11:52:16 <ynpvisitor67> I noticed there were no people in the picture over 30.
11:52:19 <GE ©> The good old days
11:52:30 <ynpvisitor67> ropes cause cancer
11:52:45 <GE ©> >(
11:52:49 <ynpvisitor37> The hot springs need to be at the end of the up-hill section
11:55:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes they do. I know the ones at the top of the Narrows in Zion was very welcome.
12:01:09 <Betty> OF
12:05:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy is likely post-eruptive by now already
12:12:37 <Betty> large group
12:28:10 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today, have fun watching Grotto when it goes and when the cam wants to co-operate
12:28:20 <Kevin L™🌵> Night
12:28:31 <Betty> night Jarno
12:36:54 <Eric> castle
12:37:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Castle ie
12:37:01 <Casey> Castle?
12:37:15 <Casey> The last one must have been a minor
12:37:54 <Casey> Very weird interval
12:38:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Had to have been a minor. Was NOT expecting this one.
12:38:52 <Eric> It's been playful this afternoon
12:39:01 <Eric> Nice spikes
12:39:08 <Casey> I wouldn't have expected Kat to misidentify a major
12:41:13 <CraigC> probably because of the 100% humidity the last couple of days.... so much steam early in the day
12:42:09 <CraigC> dang focus
12:45:03 <Kat> I will change it.. :)
12:45:20 <Kat> For some reason it was a hard call.
12:48:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Furnace Creek Visitor Center hit triple digits.
12:49:12 <CraigC> is that near Vegas?
12:49:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Death Valley
12:50:18 <Casey> Not meant to call you out Kat. Some day there might actually be a <6 hour interval after a major. Anomalies happen.
12:51:08 <Dave from B™> 100% humidity mornings can be difficult
12:51:37 <CraigC> Dave from B™, yesterday grotto looked like a Giant eruption :)
12:51:48 <Casey> Agreed. I suspect it was a minor this morning. Just making a comment.
12:52:49 <ynpvisitor63> I like what they did with Castle.
12:53:26 <ynpvisitor63> A well trained beaver and we could see the cone.
12:53:39 <CraigC> LOL
12:55:20 <ynpvisitor63> So who is buried in that pyramid back there?
12:55:27 <ynpvisitor37> Imagine the havoc if a beaver dammed Firehole River :p
12:55:31 <ynpvisitor63> Colter?
12:56:10 <ynpvisitor63> Looks like we are in steam?
13:11:13 <Eric> We missed daisy again...bummer
13:11:55 <Betty> time for sleep, enjoy your evening all
13:12:01 <Eric> Next should be around 16:10
13:12:06 <Eric> Night Betty
13:12:47 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
13:12:53 <Dave from B™> Nite Betty
13:13:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Night
13:13:19 <Eric> You just got back from your workout!
13:13:34 <Eric> :-P
13:14:24 <Dave from B™> Actually only went to the bank goiong to sweat
13:15:24 <Kevin L™🌵> You could do that here for free.
13:15:59 <Kevin L™🌵> 99° now
13:22:51 <Eric> You can't shovel that heat!
13:23:12 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
13:26:00 <Eric> riverside is due
13:26:06 <Eric> along with OF
13:26:14 <Eric> choices!
13:26:48 <ynpvisitor49> best to split the difference then
13:29:00 <Jake> OF ie
13:36:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> did SB break the seismo?
13:37:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Ovechkin broke it.
13:37:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think that was a few hours earlier
13:38:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> i guess Art is in the hot seat tonight
13:39:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> stream is not happy?
13:39:45 <Kevin L™🌵> It has had an attitude problem all day
13:40:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> i see it went from down to troubled
13:40:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am still waiting for my hug tho
13:41:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope someone got the next fountain
13:41:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Just hit triple digits here.
13:42:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> time to take off the parka?
13:44:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> theres so little steam its hard to tell if stream is streaming
13:45:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Been a tough day
13:46:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> tell me about it
14:00:24 <Kat> Kevin - trouble signing in??
14:00:39 <Eric> Cam down
14:00:52 <Kevin L™🌵> It is down
14:01:01 <Eric> and back up
14:01:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Try now
14:01:33 <Eric> daisy due pretty soon
14:01:50 <Kat> Got it - thanks!
14:02:31 <Jake> new cam position is up and down windproof but not connection-proof
14:03:31 <Eric> Wait until lot's of people are in basin and their high grade wireless gets put to the real test!
14:04:03 <Jake> because of interference between top of the inn and the VEC?
14:04:27 <Eric> I guess the wireless is connected all the way back to the ranger station
14:04:32 <ynpvisitor45> It's not hard wired?
14:04:54 <Jake> the ranger station by the post office?
14:04:58 <Eric> From what someone was saying here...but they were stating it anonymously, so not sure how accurate it was.
14:05:07 <Eric> Thats the only one I know of
14:05:17 <Jake> that might be better line of sight than the VEC
14:05:24 <ynpvisitor45> Yikes
14:05:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> we can all bring our hotspots, rent all the rooms in the Old House, and see how it does?
14:06:16 <Eric> Possibly....with good directional antennas and equipment it "should" be ok...but will all of the people in the basin, the whole 802 spectrum can get pretty ugly
14:06:51 <Art_> I'm not sure what else would compete with the 2.4 ghz spectrum besides bluetooth devices
14:07:05 <Art_> 5ghz should be in the clear but range is bad
14:07:10 <Jake> I wonder how well they can diagnose where the connection issues are happening
14:07:17 <Eric> Also you have century link back there with a bunch of big antenna probably creating all kinds of intereference.
14:07:36 <Art_> I just installed a Ubiquiti setup here with a P2P link between the house and the barn
14:07:37 <Kat> Cam keeps stopping - uggghhhh!
14:07:46 <Eric> every cell phone that is kicking out 2.4Ghz!
14:08:25 <Eric> thousands of devices all spread spectrum, omni directional
14:08:42 <Art_> I'm not aware of any cell phones in the 2.4 spectrum?
14:08:43 <Jake> ahh, a good ole fashioned wifi raising in the barn
14:09:31 <Art_> Gotta keep my goat cams and heat lamps connect for Home automation ;)
14:09:50 <Eric> wifi all uses 2.4Ghz!
14:10:05 <Eric> how do you think cell phones connect to wifi routers?
14:10:51 <Art_> Yeah but they're not going to be connecting to anything in basin nor are they high powered enough to interfere with an SSID in basin
14:11:37 <Eric> 1000 slices
14:11:38 <Jake> speaking of bad connections, I've never seen that look on YNM before
14:11:55 <Eric> Yes, that is strange
14:12:27 <Eric> It's amazing how much bad radio interference there is out there.
14:13:06 <Art_> I'm guessing bad directional antenna alignment in the P2P setup or the new router has crap signal
14:13:34 <Art_> Based on litterally one sentance of info ;)
14:13:56 <Eric> Yes, hard to say where the problem is...not sure how much testing they did for signal quality.
14:14:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> YNM usually comes back with full data, not speckled
14:14:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> what did Bill do to it? :)
14:14:27 <Eric> seismic measles
14:14:43 <Eric> Bill was in the UGB
14:14:58 <Eric> Kevin reported him to the VEC :-P
14:15:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> where is the OF Seismo? somewhere in the hills per USGS
14:15:23 <Eric> Yes, I saw that Graham...been meaning to look on maps to see where it's located
14:15:39 <Eric> I figured it was in the parking lot someplace with all the road noise it picks up
14:15:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah i did too, in/near the VEC, but it's not
14:16:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> I am sure Micah knows
14:17:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> also they set the bar for being a "Top Fan" prety low ... haha one comment and you are in
14:18:02 <Eric> haha
14:18:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> here i think you lose top fan status the more you post
14:18:40 <Eric> So their GPS coordinates put it here:'00.0%22N+110%C2%B050'24.0%22W/@44.4501768,-110.8417941,391m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d44.45!4d-110.84
14:18:43 <Eric> uggg
14:19:19 <Art_> T-Minus 29 days till in the park for us
14:19:31 <Eric> GPS coordinates:
14:19:44 <Eric> Woot
14:20:09 <CraigC> Art_, I'll be there then, arriving 24th
14:23:49 <Art_> Gonna be nice to see everyone again, fingers crossed on SB
14:28:34 <Eric> me too craig!
14:29:33 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
14:29:37 <Eric> missed daisy again
14:30:04 <Eric> I assume it's passed time
14:30:16 <CraigC> I hope I can meet some of y'all in my 2 May trips
14:30:43 <Eric> Yes, I am sure we will see each other Craig
14:30:51 <Kat> Hope so!
14:30:53 <CraigC> cool
14:31:01 <Eric> I am there 24-2nd
14:34:51 <Eric> I bet this is the location of YFT seismograph:,-110.8322274,203m/data=!3m1!1e3
14:35:01 <Kat> I should be there the 18 -4th
14:35:57 <Eric> wow...long trip! Nice
14:36:10 <Eric> Wish I could stay that long
14:36:44 <Kat> It's a long drive - so must make the best of it!
14:37:47 <Craig> o/
14:38:00 <Craig> Wow! I haven't been on since the new camera!
14:38:05 <Eric> I have a Fall trip booked, but will probably have to cancel that so I can take my daughter college touring
14:38:16 <Eric> I Craig
14:38:18 <Eric> Hi Craig
14:38:36 <Eric> Now we have 2 Craigs :-D
14:38:53 <Craig> Oh no
14:39:00 <Craig> How did this happen? ;P
14:39:11 <Craig M.> That's better
14:40:13 <Eric> CraigC took your name :-D
14:41:28 <Craig M.> Trying to reorient myself with this new camera
14:42:46 <CraigC> is there another Craig that has claim to the Craig name here? LOL
14:48:27 <Craig M.> To *reclaim* the Craig name ;)
14:55:07 <CraigC> OF
15:06:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> some thickness on the YNM trace
15:09:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> 25th thru 9th for me ... so one month from today .. weeeee
15:14:38 <Eric> hmm, that trace does look interesting
15:15:55 <Eric> Can we see Norris with the new cam? :-P
15:18:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> .
15:18:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> aurum
15:18:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> .
15:18:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> .
15:18:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> .
15:18:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> .
15:19:12 <CraigC> nice
15:19:20 <CraigC> caught it this time
15:19:30 <CraigC> thanks for the dings
15:19:38 <Craig M.> oh hello aurum
15:20:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> Kevin feeding his chickens again?
15:21:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice, Maureen got Ftn
15:21:37 <Kat> Stepped away for a minute! Missed it!
15:22:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> Jarno has some Vixen times to compare the logger data to
15:24:18 <Eric> Those are some interesting spreads on the seismo...will be curious to see if the align to anything
15:24:35 <CraigC> can we see White?
15:24:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> dont think so Craig
15:26:12 <CraigC> is Dan on top of the Inn?
15:28:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> no SB note tho
15:29:41 <Eric> Well, if it's erupting...I doubt anyone has left :-P
15:32:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> good to see Whirligig had some majors
15:38:29 <ynpvisitor82> Dan S left Norris
15:39:09 <ynpvisitor82> I think SB is waiting for the Beverlys now
15:42:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> so the SB plot is updating but the time is off?
15:43:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> or its the right time and just slowly uploading?
15:43:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> the seismo plot i meant
15:46:20 <LoriS> Hello all
15:46:37 <ynpvisitor67> Hi Lori
15:47:05 <LoriS> Bob said no :sb: steam column as of 1610 per his boss who drove by.
15:47:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks Lori
15:48:00 <CraigC> hey Lori
15:48:33 <ynpvisitor67> I'm struggling to figure out what Grotto Fountain just did. Sure doesn't look like it got Grotto going.
15:48:45 <LoriS> Hi Craig
15:49:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats exciting 67
15:50:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> it used to do that when recovering from a Marathon a while ago
15:51:01 <ynpvisitor67> Interesting. I had no idea.
15:51:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> and then after a series of GF+Grotto eruptions you could get Grotto without GF
15:51:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> then it needed another Marathon to reset
15:52:43 <LoriS> I had an odd Steamboat dream a few nights back...
15:52:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> i was wondering if it was going to be a solo GF when I saw it this winter, but then Grotto started 40min after GF
15:53:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> i had told some visitors that Grotto might start but I was glad they didnt wait given how long it took
15:54:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> we should check the replay to see where GF steam was
15:54:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> bulger
15:56:48 <Eric> It is nice to start getting these in basin times so we can check alignment of the cam
15:57:00 <Eric> bulger again or major?
15:57:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> major
15:57:34 <Eric> WT or something back on the grand platform
15:57:59 <Craig M.> woah when did we get a :sb: emote?
15:59:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> Turban?
15:59:11 <LoriS> Had it for a bit anyway CraigM
15:59:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> you have been gone too long Craig M
15:59:34 <Craig M.> Seems that way!
15:59:49 <Ryan> Old Tardy ie
15:59:53 <Craig M.> Been busy with school
16:00:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> I added a Grotto note for the record
16:01:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> you need to get your priorities straight Craig
16:02:02 <Craig M.> My thoughts exactly
16:09:46 <ynpvisitor67> Go Lion!
16:16:28 <ynpvisitor67> :daisy:
16:29:05 <Kat> OF 1828
16:30:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> Dan reported Radiator at 1820 - not sure thats the right feature
16:30:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> i have never seen it, but maybe its active
16:31:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> Bonita SPuts erupt in a similar spot
16:31:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> and they start during Daisy eruption, so the timing is right
16:35:26 <CraigC> bluger
16:35:32 <CraigC> and bulger, too
16:36:17 <Kat> >(
16:36:34 <ynpvisitor92> maybe a flag for more detail on the radiator entry then?
16:37:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> grotto ftn?
16:37:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> i dont like to flag .... what if Radiator is erupting?
16:37:49 <CraigC> how do you tell?
16:38:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe Grotto?
16:38:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> steam in the right place, was fairly weak to start with and now bigger
16:38:39 <ynpvisitor92> well he will get an email if it is flagged.....
16:38:56 <ynpvisitor67> definitely something's going back there. I'm guesing Grotto.
16:39:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like two steam columns now
16:39:41 <CraigC> 27 year interval on radiator
16:39:42 <ynpvisitor67> I see. The second coumn is further right than I would have expected.
16:40:50 <CraigC> 45 years since last Bonita eruption
16:41:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> its very close to grotto and obscured most of the time
16:41:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> the steam further right and lower is Bijou
16:42:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> oops .. not Grand
16:42:09 <ynpvisitor67> I need to study some more. Won't do well on the quiz.
16:42:24 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, LOL
16:42:50 <LoriS> I was like, Grand? Where? LOL
16:43:26 <CraigC> can you email someone through GT?
16:44:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> i get email when something flagged
16:44:23 <LoriS> Put a note on it then flag it?
16:44:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> had one the other day when an OT eruption didnt get merged
16:44:44 <CraigC> what is sending steam horizontally to the right back there
16:45:37 <LoriS> ...a thermal feature :p
16:45:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> Spasmodic
16:45:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> or WT
16:45:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> or Oblong
16:45:58 <CraigC> just right of grotto area, is that bijou?
16:46:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes, thats Bijou
16:46:26 <CraigC> thanks
16:46:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> hehe everything is sending steam horizontally
16:46:46 <LoriS> IKR?
16:47:05 <CraigC> weird that everything else is being blown to the right but the grotto area steam is mostly going straight up
16:47:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> LoriS, ?
16:47:37 <CraigC> well, up until I typed that, then it proved me wrong
16:47:39 <LoriS> I Know Right?
16:47:42 <ynpvisitor92> it can happen. i have seen the flags on the inn going one way and OF/BH going the other
16:47:44 <CraigC> Grand
16:47:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah
16:48:22 <LoriS> Is that funky blob on the lower right on the cam?
16:48:35 <GO STEAMBOAT> Grande
16:48:41 <LoriS> I mean, obviously it is I guess
16:48:44 <Craig M.> :grand:
16:48:54 <LoriS> Nice
16:49:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> its funky bob on the cam
16:50:14 <LoriS> he last
16:50:19 <LoriS> whoops
16:50:43 <LoriS> last bell hopped many years ago
16:51:21 <LoriS> bob
16:51:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> funky bob haunts the top of the inn and now the webcam?
16:53:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like the seismo is catching up slowly
16:57:48 <LoriS> There is an actual funky Bob?
16:58:15 <LoriS> ...was
16:59:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> theres bob
17:01:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> bulger
17:01:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> minor
17:04:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> I see Will flagged the Radiator entry
17:04:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> probably Bonita's Sputs
17:05:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> enjoy Giantess
17:05:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> see you tomorrow
17:05:52 <ynpvisitor67> Will do. I like calm blue pools.
17:11:05 <Kat> GO STEAMBOAT, Have a good evening!
17:22:06 <ynpvisitor67> Are those bats flying everywhere in front of the camera?
17:22:45 <Art> Birds?
17:23:00 <Kat> Some kind of bug..
17:23:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Low flying aircraft
17:27:56 <Art> Must be pretty buggy in the park?
17:28:45 <ynpvisitor89> I forget what those Insects are called but the swallows love them. Dont open your mouth around them or they'll fly right I. I know from experience ce u fortunately.
17:29:46 <LindaG> Hi everyone
17:30:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
17:30:13 <ynpvisitor67> Hi Linda, thanks for the flying creatures ID.
17:30:14 <Kat> Hey Linda!
17:30:15 <LindaG> They are in swarms and they follow you
17:31:26 <LindaG> I got one lodged in my throat once, coughed so much I lost my voice. Unfortunately I was supposed to give a talk to a group and couldnt
17:34:00 <Kat> What are they?
17:34:34 <LindaG> I cant think of their name, I want to say midges but I dont think that's it.
17:35:01 <CraigC> midges could be right
17:35:35 <LindaG> I used to spend a lot of time in the Meadowlands in Jersey and they would come out the same Time the swallows returned
17:35:43 <Art> Blue Winged Olive's?
17:36:05 <CraigC> ephemeroptera? :)
17:36:39 <Art> March Browns?
17:36:40 <LindaG> 😊
17:36:44 <Kat> I thought midges were samller?
17:37:09 <CraigC> stone flies, plecoptera?
17:37:27 <Kevin L™🌵> I thought midges were a small tootsie roll.
17:37:57 <LindaG> I think midges are really what they call no-seeums
17:38:15 <LindaG> Might stone flies, I just cant remember
17:38:27 <CraigC> the ones they call no-seeums at Antelope Island are biters
17:39:15 <CraigC> stone flies won't hatch until end of may or later up there
17:39:22 <Kat> They do bite!
17:40:00 <LindaG> Yes and what we are seeing dont bite. They just swarm around you and follow you. I think they are attracted to body heat
17:43:43 <Art> Is that Oblong steam?
17:44:06 <Art> Sorry not 100% on the new view downbasin
17:44:21 <CraigC> Oblong is straight behind Sprinkler
17:45:12 <CraigC> grotto area is the next one to the right, huge steam pillar, then bijou is just right of it
17:45:58 <Art> ty
17:46:09 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
17:46:50 <CraigC> Art, here is a rough map of vectors;
17:47:49 <ynpvisitor25> What happened to the seismographs earlier?
17:49:55 <ynpvisitor67> Is Depression ie or just evening steam?
17:53:12 <ynpvisitor83> @25,They will ignore your question because the earthquake detector found the problem and they tried to hide it.
17:53:16 <ynpvisitor67> Thanks for the view. I still have no idea.
17:53:50 <Art> CraigC, Thanks
17:54:03 <ynpvisitor90> what did the earthquake detector detect ynpvisitor83?
17:54:13 <LindaG> Not sure about depression.
17:55:10 <ynpvisitor67> "I have no idea" is also my answer for what happened to the seismogram data this afternoon.
17:55:26 <Art> It looks like just a missing chunk of data
17:55:39 <LindaG> The blank spots?
17:55:43 <Art> Like upload failed
17:55:52 <Art> or an outage, or they were servinging it
17:56:04 <ynpvisitor90> good answer Art :)
17:56:18 <Kevin L™🌵> There was a lot of outage on the cam today. Probably loss of internet
17:56:23 <ynpvisitor52> Beating it with a wrench lol
17:56:48 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, sorry to hear cam was troublesome
17:57:05 <Art> Is Norris on parknet or is it sat uplink?
17:57:09 <LindaG> I hope it heals for me tomorrow
17:57:30 <Kat> It's been good this evening
17:57:45 <ynpvisitor83> This problem has happened more than once.
17:57:53 <Art> I think the Y4eva store has a satelite on it but not sure what USGS uses
17:57:55 <LindaG> I think it doesnt like afternoon
17:58:18 <LindaG> Yesterday morning g it was good
17:59:27 <Kat> I did not :)
18:00:53 <Art> I don't see any recent gaps in the seismo ynpvisitor83
18:01:36 <Art>
18:01:57 <Art> It's still a piece of equipment in the middle of nowhere, amazing it works at all ;)
18:06:24 <ynpvisitor83> They filled the blank spots with false data.
18:08:09 <ynpvisitor67> Old Fluffy
18:08:16 <Kat> OF 2007
18:08:34 <ynpvisitor40> ynpvisitor83, Prove it or get off of chat. No place for trolls
18:08:36 <ynpvisitor83> This morning, the ground of Roosevelt Arch was cracked, but it didn’t take long before the ground returned to normal.
18:08:56 <ynpvisitor90> what? I'd like to see that one
18:09:18 <ynpvisitor40> Ok you are obviously a nut job
18:10:27 <ynpvisitor83>
18:11:44 <ynpvisitor83> This is the current static camera image
18:12:31 <ynpvisitor83> This morning, the ground is not like this
18:12:54 <ynpvisitor40> You English grammar good
18:13:19 <ynpvisitor90> you have to save the images for proof, otherwise I do not believe you
18:14:44 <ynpvisitor83> Sorry, I didn't save the image.
18:15:08 <ynpvisitor83> 40,thank you
18:17:47 <Kat> early morning and dusk light make the cam more blurry
18:30:40 <BWaggs> G'nite Linda
18:33:17 <ChrisO- cell> Night all
18:33:40 <ynpvisitor67> Night ChrisO
18:33:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Night John boy
18:35:48 <ynpvisitor67> Daisy
19:24:26 <ynpvisitor99> Looks like conspiracy nut went away.
19:26:02 <ynpvisitor13> Dan S thinks there are whooping cranes in Yellowstone
19:33:23 <y> There were a pair of Whooping Cranes that hung around Slough Creek in the oughts, IIRC.
19:34:27 <y> Just for one season.
19:37:05 <ynpvisitor13> Very rare to Yellowstone. Guessing he saw Sandhills. He gets a few things mixed up
20:10:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Lion?
20:12:23 <ynpvisitor95> :heart:
20:37:51 <ynpvisitor39> At least it hasn't quit for the summer!
20:50:03 <ynpvisitor71> Steamboat ie
20:54:21 <ynpvisitor51> 22:26 E on YNM
20:59:43 <y> Darkness and foul weather, the only known indicators.
21:02:26 <CraigC> awesome
21:11:37 <y> FWIW, I did not know it had gone while I was typing my note.
