04:39:31 <LindaG> Good morning
04:41:54 <Joe> Hi Linda
04:42:54 <LindaG> How was the cam?
04:42:59 <Joe> Bad night for the cam, many ups and downs, Grand should be any time now
04:43:25 <LindaG>
04:44:08 <LindaG> Ok later I've got CCs shift, coffee now
04:45:00 <Joe> OF should be near 0500 so will switch soon to catch it, the cam was down for the previous one
04:45:48 <LindaG> 👍
04:46:07 <LindaG> How are you feeling these days?
04:46:43 <Joe> Better but still weak
04:47:33 <LindaG> That's good, it's a slow recovery. Had it a few years ago. Not fun
04:47:56 <Joe> The cam has lost its light gathering ability the picture should be much better
04:49:45 <Joe> I know i'm not allowed to do that but I wanted to check grand
04:50:31 <LindaG> Lol we are stuck between a rock and a hard place, as they say.
04:51:25 <Joe> I think they changed the night settings to satisfy complaints about those lights
04:52:08 <LindaG> Makes sense
04:55:33 <Joe> Looking at the overnights it was changed May 15-16th
04:56:49 <LindaG> I'm surprised that manynpeop
04:57:30 <LindaG> Yikes surprised that many people would actually see it in the dark
04:59:57 <Joe> Yes I am too, but many east coasters are on early in the morning while still dark, and many west coasters late at night
05:22:05 <LindaG> Yay OF
05:22:26 <LindaG> Pretty
05:27:58 <Joe> Castle started somewhere about 2 but cam was down and when i did see it it would be a guess I'll leave it for interp and E time
05:30:16 <Joe> Grand was 10h 54 min ago so anouther hour??
05:32:47 <LindaG> 👍
05:45:47 <ynpvisitor71> Cam looks tired
05:46:33 <Joe> They don't like seeing the parking lots
05:47:15 <Joe> so I'm trying to accommodate
05:49:02 <ynpvisitor71> Maybe they should have thought of that before mounting it where they did ;)
05:50:45 <Joe> The OF lodge building would have been a much better view
05:51:02 <GO MORNING (2)> yeah Morning Ftn dual yesterday. my mojo worked
05:51:13 <Joe> one instead of three or four
05:51:57 <Joe> We always depend on your mojo ;)
05:53:48 <GO MORNING (2)> now who is getting Giant and F&M going again?
05:56:07 <ynpvisitor71> So if you scroll down on chat this looks very cinematic ;)
05:59:41 <CraigC(0)> mornin, Joe, been busy night, lots of captures
05:59:46 <CraigC(0)> hey Art
05:59:46 <Art (1)> Morning and good morning!
05:59:57 <CraigC(0)> hey Graham
06:00:45 <LindaG> Good morning GO MORNING (2), Art (1), CraigC(0),
06:00:55 <CraigC(0)> hey Linda
06:01:29 <GO MORNING (2)> are you ready Art?
06:01:46 <LindaG> NG?
06:02:02 <Art (1)> I think so, just wrapping up the last couple projects around the house and farm this morning. Working from home which makes life easier
06:02:31 <GO MORNING (2)> i think Art and Eric are in charge of getting Giant and F&M going since they get there before me
06:02:34 <Art (1)> Have to leave here around 3am to get to Logan for a 5:55am flight to MSP
06:02:47 <LindaG> NG minor I think
06:02:49 <GO MORNING (2)> that will hurt
06:03:28 <Joe> Hi Craig, missed many, cam was down a lot last night, and they have made a change to the night mode where the cam does not capture as much light as it has in the past
06:03:42 <CraigC(0)> bummer
06:03:57 <LindaG> Joe, I think NG just minored
06:04:10 <CraigC(0)> LindaG, I can't tell if there was water or just steam
06:04:15 <Art (1)> GO MORNING (2), Good news is we get in BZN at noon
06:04:23 <Joe> I'll check
06:04:35 <GO MORNING (2)> thats no fun Joe, did you let them know? They were doing something yesterday afternoon and may have changed it
06:04:56 <GO MORNING (2)> my flight gets in around noon, through SLC though
06:04:59 <GO MORNING (2)> on Sat
06:05:47 <Joe> Yes I sent email
06:06:38 <Joe> I compared other moonlit nights and now it it...BAD
06:09:08 <Joe> Linda, lots of steam but no NG minor :(
06:09:48 <LindaG> Joe, Oh well. I can take cam any time
06:09:50 <Art (1)> GO MORNING (2), How many hour drive is it?
06:10:05 <Joe> I'm done...controls released
06:10:35 <CraigC(0)> SLC airport is an hour from me, I can make it to West in about 4 hours
06:10:50 <LindaG> Got it
06:12:21 <Art (1)> We've been very lucky, fingers crossed with BOS -> MSP -> BZN
06:12:45 <Art (1)> MSP is a nice airport for a layover
06:12:53 <Art (1)> Flying Delta
06:13:48 <CraigC(0)> marmot cave is probably going
06:14:34 <GO MORNING (2)> jealous Craig. what are you doing here, get going
06:15:07 <CraigC(0)> GO MORNING (2), have to wait for 2 others to be ready. I am doing my laundry and waiting for my lower back to loosen up
06:15:10 <GO MORNING (2)> only 40min to airport during non-rush hour, connect in SLC to BZN
06:15:33 <GO MORNING (2)> early flight this time of year should be good
06:15:41 <GO MORNING (2)> as long as the plane comes in tonight
06:15:55 <CraigC(0)> how lond is the drive from Boseman to West?
06:15:58 <CraigC(0)> long
06:16:07 <GO MORNING (2)> not waiting on mom to have breakfast this time?
06:16:21 <GO MORNING (2)> under 2h
06:16:28 <CraigC(0)> LOL, no mom this time, g/f is still sleeping
06:16:30 <GO MORNING (2)> will stop at Albertsons too
06:16:33 <GO MORNING (2)> its 90 miles
06:17:08 <CraigC(0)> bulger
06:17:30 <GO MORNING (2)> usually a fairly fast drive and pretty
06:17:40 <CraigC(0)> nice
06:18:05 <CraigC(0)> what kind of vehicle did you rent?
06:18:13 <GO MORNING (2)> W gate is usually fine when i get there mid afternoon
06:18:15 <Ryan(132)> Finally figured out your numbers
06:18:22 <Art (1)> GO MORNING (2), Agreed we head in via Paradise Valley
06:18:24 <CraigC(0)> hey Ryan, feeling any better?
06:18:25 <GO MORNING (2)> thats too many numbers Ryan
06:18:25 <Art (1)> Via Gardiner
06:18:35 <Ryan(132)> Yes, actually, I am
06:18:41 <CraigC(0)> :thumbsup:
06:19:11 <GO MORNING (2)> yeah nice drive also, takes a little longer to OF, but maybe more wildlife. You staying at OF?
06:19:18 <Joe> Good to hear Ryan
06:19:26 <LindaGp> Daisy always seems to be in sync with OF
06:19:49 <GO MORNING (2)> avoid the camera wiplash Linda
06:20:14 <Art (1)> Mammoth for the first 3 days then OF for 3 then Roosevelt for a bit
06:20:14 <Joe> Daisy eill be ~ 0653
06:20:25 <LindaGp> As in I moved it.to soon or too fast
06:20:29 <Art (1)> Figure Mammoth gives us some options depending on SB
06:20:52 <CraigC(0)> Art (1), between Mammoth and Norris is where the Griz and cubs are
06:21:31 <Art (1)> The road construction should be on leave while we are up there too
06:21:52 <Art (1)> Not sure how bad it's been but they don't do the closures during Memorial Day per the YNP road site
06:22:15 <Art (1)> CraigC(0), I wonder if bear management has gotten invoved yet
06:22:25 <Art (1)> Those were some pretty amazing pictures you got
06:22:43 <CraigC(0)> Art (1), I think so, from what I read from Deby Dixon
06:22:52 <LindaGp> Grove
06:23:12 <Art (1)> I had to unfollow her, too much drama
06:23:30 <GO MORNING (2)> yeah no road closures during the holiday weekend but after that who knows.
06:23:36 <CraigC(0)> yeah, I read a lot less
06:24:57 <CraigC(0)> is that pyramid steam back there?
06:25:11 <LindaGp> I'm wondering what
06:25:49 <Art (1)> I'm curious if Washburn/Dunraven pass will be open
06:26:05 <Art (1)> Scheduled for tomorrow but this weather...
06:26:38 <Joe> If it was just right of base of pyramid
06:26:41 <CraigC(0)> this view on cam looks 1000x better than out my back window here
06:27:50 <CraigC(0)> grand
06:28:24 <LindaGp> Sorry lost control
06:28:30 <CraigC(0)> :)
06:29:27 <Joe> Be careful loeing control :)
06:29:30 <CraigC(0)> was anyone paying enough attention to see if bulger was major? I wasn't ;(
06:29:38 <Joe> loseing*
06:30:04 <LindaGp> .cam was down here and when it cam up grand was you g. Got too excited lol
06:30:30 <LindaGp> *was going
06:30:59 <CraigC(0)> breathe in, breathe out :)
06:31:24 <Joe> I'll look Craig also not pyramid, I posted a video of pyramid yesterday
06:31:35 <CraigC(0)> Joe, thanks
06:31:50 <CraigC(0)> any idea where that steam was coming from
06:31:57 <Art (1)> That steam looked to be right of Pyramid?
06:32:32 <LindaGp> Well at least grand wind compete with OF
06:33:10 <Joe> Pyarmid steam shows right on the right base of pyramid
06:33:21 <LindaGp> *won't
06:33:58 <Joe> I'lnput up the video of pyr from yesterday
06:37:51 <LindaGp> 10 min
06:38:01 <Joe> Craig I did not see bulger erupting aney where near that time
06:38:37 <Joe> @nd

06:42:38 <Joe1> Craig, Art anyone Pyramid video 1129 1130 base of pyr look quick https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9X-z2znXC7Q
06:44:38 <Joe> That pyr had an in basin report
06:44:46 <GO MORNING (2)> fun reading the Morning's Thief and whether Morning could erupt ... meanwhile Morning says "hold my ber..."
06:44:48 <CraigC(0)> Joe, thanks, I deleted the bulger
06:44:59 <GO MORNING (2)> or beer :)
06:45:25 <GO MORNING (2)> reading chat from yesterday .... i must need coffee again
06:46:53 <CraigC(0)> so that really short puff of steam was pyramid
06:47:50 <Joe> Yes, the only way I found it was an in basin report
06:48:11 <LindaGp> Joe, I am only able to do my shift tomorrow. So Kats nor ing shift is open
06:48:21 <CraigC(0)> the only other thing I see on the map right of that is Cyclops Spring
06:48:27 <LindaGp> *morning
06:48:31 <Joe> It was little bitty right at the right base
06:49:28 <Joe> Ok I'll do Kat's shift
06:50:01 <LindaGp> 👍
06:50:49 <Joe> Craig most likly that was Cyclops that you saw
06:51:08 <CraigC(0)> :thumbsup:
06:53:26 <Art (1)> Joe1, Thanks!
06:54:38 <Joe> Yw Art I have that stuff on my other computer hence Joe1
07:00:14 <CraigC(0)> here is an op-ed on the recent bears near Obsidian and the closures-management; http://www.greater-yellowstone.com/2019/Grizzly-Bear-viewing-Yellowstone.html?fbclid=IwAR0Z2RNBLp2PBm5Ji-o_mmq9E9R79Hp1TZXrrV-f7jimGZbstZ9Z_cc7qeE
07:00:52 <CraigC(0)> sounds like they closed off the pullouts in the area and not allowing any stopping along the road through there
07:01:21 <ynpvisitor26> yes, the construction trucks could not get through
07:02:06 <LindaGp> OF is taking forever
07:04:39 <LindaGp> OF
07:06:26 <Dave from B™> CraigC, on my way up to SB on May 13 around 7 am, all the pullouts were closed
07:06:37 <Dave from B™> Good morning everyone
07:06:38 <GO MORNING (2)> of
07:06:57 <Cooper> good morning Dave
07:07:25 <LindaGp> Hmm lost cam
07:08:34 <Joe> cam still good here
07:08:50 <Joe> Hi Dave
07:09:06 <LindaGp> Back up
07:09:50 <Joe> must be your ISP no cam loss here
07:10:19 <LindaGp> Yeah gotta switch rooms
07:11:23 <CraigC(0)> on the Norris side of the construction there were pullouts open and they let us park off the edge of the road as long as wheels were over the white line, and that was all three days we went up to the bears
07:11:30 <GO MORNING (2)> Ftn report, nice to have an early one
07:12:14 <GO MORNING (2)> whats your plan for YNP today Craig?
07:12:56 <CraigC(0)> GO MORNING (2), probably head south at Madison Jct and play it by ear. I want to head to UGB, but maybe Fountain area
07:12:56 <LindaGp> I think my WiFi is weak in the room i was in
07:14:03 <LindaGp> Do younthink daisy is still possible?
07:14:22 <KittyM> CraigC(0), thanks for that article on the grizzlies, it was really thought-provoking
07:14:53 <CraigC(0)> KittyM, YW, I have mixed feelings and frustrations about it
07:15:23 <Joe> Daisy 2h 42min ago, probably not
07:15:29 <KittyM> I can see why
07:15:42 <LindaGp> Well we'll find out
07:15:54 <CraigC(0)> that sow was filling her stomach while we watched it and made her own choice about how close she wanted to be around the poeple
07:15:57 <Joe> but i have been wrong before
07:16:25 <LindaGp> It's the only thing due so ill put cam down here and wait
07:17:06 <CraigC(0)> the people all stayed still and quiet, and she was decided their comfort zone
07:19:11 <ynpvisitor26> heard she stays by the road for safety
07:19:27 <KittyM> thats what the article is pointing out
07:19:54 <Dave from B™> It's still not good for bears to get habituated to people
07:21:26 <Dave from B™> It may provide them safety with cubs but will lead to issues later
07:23:44 <CraigC(0)> given the situation of so many tourists, I believe the balance has been pretty good for the last couple of decades of bears keeping themselves at a decent safe distance from people
07:24:31 <Dave from B™> I think with the increasing grizzly population we are headed for years with many conflicts
07:25:34 <CraigC(0)> wasn;t the last human death the jogger that was alone in the hills above West Thumb?
07:25:56 <Dave from B™> Like anything, it will be the uncontrollable few that will ruin it for the majority
07:26:12 <CraigC(0)> yeah, you're right about that
07:26:25 <Dave from B™> Yes, near Elephant Back behind Lake Village area
07:27:24 <Dave from B™> they always used to say hiking with 4 people (4 make more noise) was the safe way to hike and not be bothered by bears. I'm not so sure that is true anymore.
07:27:42 <Dave from B™> Bear Spray is a must
07:27:55 <CraigC(0)> at Obsidian, the 3 days we hung out there, people never left the roadway, and people managed other people without any rangers there. People stayed in their spots, never invading on the bears, and the bears grazed back and forth along the road
07:28:31 <Dave from B™> That is the way it should be; and everyone benefits
07:28:39 <CraigC(0)> yep
07:29:15 <ynpvisitor26> why do you think group of 4 isn't true anymoreDave from B™?
07:29:22 <CraigC(0)> after one lady got a bunch of pics, she had my mom take her spot. After I got in and got some pics, I waved for some new people to come in and have my view
07:29:58 <Dave from B™> There was the boy attack that occurred in a group of 4, I believe
07:30:13 <Dave from B™> More grizzlies means more backcountry encounters
07:30:18 <CraigC(0)> an instructional video posted yesterday stated groups of 4 or more
07:30:53 <Dave from B™> My feeling is you need to be prepared for an encounter even if you are hiking with 4 or more
07:37:29 <LindaGp> Is this new a msg that says when the window opens for a geyser or did I just never notice it?
07:38:10 <LindaGp> I lightly touched the.prediction for Of
07:38:12 <ynpvisitor26> where was the boy/bear encounter? don't recall that one
07:38:56 <Dave from B™> I'll have to dig into it. I don't remember where
07:42:47 <Ryan(132)> I carry bear spray everywhere anyways. More effective, and safer for me, than a firearm or any other form of personal protection for just about anything (including bears)
07:43:08 <Dave from B™> https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/washington-boy-injured-in-yellowstone-bear-attack/
07:43:37 <Dave from B™> Yep...I'm the dumb guy who puts it in his pack. No more.
07:44:03 <Ryan(132)> yeah mine stays carabiner clipped somewhere close by
07:44:33 <LindaGp> I have a bear bell too
07:45:06 <Ryan(132)> I cant stand the noise, I just travel in a group and stay aware.
07:45:26 <LindaGp> Lion
07:45:59 <LindaGp> Bell is annoying, at least I can lock it from sound
07:46:06 <Ryan(132)> INitial? Nice!
07:46:18 <LindaGp> I think so
07:46:28 <Dave from B™> Bear bells are not effective
07:46:41 <Ryan(132)> Yeah thats an initial. Its one of my favorite kinds of eruptions.
07:47:04 <Joe> First seen all night (when cam was up)
07:47:13 <Rice> Is a bear bell like a dinner bell Dave?
07:47:53 <Cooper> BBL
07:48:27 <Dave from B™> They aren't dinner bells. and, they aren't load, either
07:48:33 <Dave from B™> loud*
07:48:49 <Dave from B™> Singing annoying hiking songs is the best way to go
07:49:02 <Rice> I cant have bear spray shipped to me in NY, I dont understand that.....
07:49:27 <Ryan(132)> Rice, can you go to a nearby Dicks or similar sporting goods store?
07:49:32 <Dave from B™> The hard part for most, including myself, is to realize when in Yellowstone humans are NOT at the top of the food chain
07:50:00 <Rice> Dicks was founded in my town, Binghamton NY, so we have 2 of them! I have not checked to see if they carry it.
07:50:00 <Ryan(132)> Easy enough for me, I have to realize usually that I am not at the top of the human food chain either :D
07:50:07 <Ryan(132)> They should.
07:51:04 <Rice> Bears have trouble running away with their paws over their ears, from the singing.
07:51:13 <CraigC(0)> LOL
07:51:51 <Dave from B™> You've heard my wife sing before?:)
07:52:17 <LindaGp> 7 min
07:53:27 <GO MORNING (2)> A Lynn report on Clep
07:54:33 <Dave from B™> Was does already off mean?
07:55:04 <Ryan(132)> Guess it was on when fountain ended
07:55:13 <Rice> I wonder how a tazer would work on a bear?
07:56:07 <Dave from B™> I wouldn't want to get close enough to find out
07:56:13 <GO MORNING (2)> looks like it was off on her arrival. SHould be 0649 start time
07:56:41 <Rice> would it just piss it off more, or drop it, I am not sure.
07:57:47 <GO MORNING (2)> thats how i enter them anyway, report the start time and comment on how long it was off before then
08:00:57 <Ryan(132)> dome?
08:01:04 <Ryan(132)> just steaming?
08:01:15 <LindaGp> I think steaming
08:03:07 <LindaGp> BA
08:03:11 <Ryan(132)> Also having trouble seeing if LS is doing something
08:03:56 <Ryan(132)> The 40s delay here makes it hard to know if the cam has moved before I say something stupid
08:04:29 <GO MORNING (2)> that never holds me back from saying something stupid
08:04:52 <CraigC(0)> LOL
08:04:54 <Ryan(132)> I didnt say that I would stop :)
08:04:55 <Rice> So I called my local Dicks store, You cant not buy bear spray in NY, something about the concentraion reqiuires special licsening, and basically nobody has it.by bear spray at Dicks Stores in NY either???
08:05:17 <LindaGp> LA looks weak I've seen it a lot stronger
08:05:18 <Ryan(132)> Huh, sorry to hear that, Rice.
08:05:23 <Rice> Sorry, the end of that should have been deleted.
08:05:39 <CraigC(0)> we might stop in Pocatello on our way up this morning and see if Costco has the 2-pack
08:05:41 <Ryan(132)> Guess its a local weapons ordinance thing.
08:05:53 <Rice> But I can have it shipped to one of my co workers who lives 10 miles south in PA....
08:06:04 <Ryan(132)> For instance, in PA we can't buy Black Powder at Dicks or Cabelas, but we can in WV
08:06:09 <LindaGp> Ls is weak
08:06:48 <Rice> You from PA Ryan?
08:06:51 <Ryan(132)> The answer would then be to buy it in PA and bring it home, but make sure NY doesnt have a law against owning bear spray.
08:06:59 <Ryan(132)> Yep, SW PA south of Pittsburgh
08:19:36 <CraigC(0)> hey Jimbo
08:19:36 <Eric (uno)> Craig...costco does have the 2 packs of bear spray in pocatello, I called them
08:19:42 <CraigC(0)> hey Eric
08:19:48 <Eric (uno)> Morning Craig
08:19:50 <CraigC(0)> Eric (uno), cool, thanks
08:20:04 <Eric (uno)> I am stopping there tomorrow to pick up a pack :-D
08:20:26 <CraigC(0)> looks like a quick exit/entry after the Chubbock junction
08:20:37 <Dave from B™> I keep forgetting you are driving Eric
08:21:25 <CraigC(0)> Eric (uno), do you go through Boise to get to YNP?
08:21:38 <Eric (uno)> Yep
08:21:54 <Eric (uno)> Hi Dave
08:22:20 <CraigC(0)> ughhhh.... that Mountain Home section is about the dreariest drive of anywhere
08:22:43 <Eric (uno)> haha...yep, it's one very long straight road
08:23:02 <Dave from B™> CraigC, you haven't been to Eastern Montana or Kansas then
08:23:06 <CraigC(0)> but the Blue Hills make up for it
08:23:13 <Eric (uno)> I don't like the drive between boise and pocatello either...the hole stretch smells like cow poop
08:23:29 <CraigC(0)> hole stretch LOL
08:23:30 <Eric (uno)> or the whole stretch
08:23:46 <CraigC(0)> first was more apropos
08:25:19 <Eric (uno)> looks pretty nice in the basin this morning...hopefully this is starting a good weather trend :-D
08:25:32 <CraigC(0)> hopefully
08:25:38 <Ryan(132)> Ready for SB round 2, Eric?
08:25:42 <Ryan(132)> Cistern is in overflow again
08:26:12 <CraigC(0)> it is awful at my house, I don;t even dare put out our garbage bin because it is so windy
08:27:43 <Eric (uno)> Yep...I will probably pop over saturday evening and then be their early Sunday morning for the real show :-D
08:28:28 <Eric (uno)> That sucks Craig...I hate strong winds
08:28:35 <Ryan(132)> I have hope for my October trip. Not much home, but... :)
08:29:04 <Eric (uno)> Yep, I hope you get it Ryan!
08:29:19 <Ryan(132)> It never just *dies*. It always erupts for another couple of years at very irregular intervals. So while I may not be able to have a "window" that doesnt mean I have no chance either,
08:29:39 <CraigC(0)> Ryan(132), I have more hope for Oct than I do the this weekend, I have to play tour guide
08:29:43 <Eric (uno)> It's a geyser, you ALWAYS have a chance :-P
08:29:53 <Katie(8)> good morning
08:29:59 <CraigC(0)> hey Katie
08:30:00 <Eric (uno)> morning Katie
08:30:02 <Ryan(132)> You gonna come share the festivities, Craig?
08:30:19 <Ryan(132)> 9 October 2019, birthday Steamboat, come join the fun its an open invitation,
08:30:26 <CraigC(0)> Ryan(132), I hope to, Oct is a great time in the park
08:30:43 <Ryan(132)> There will be loud noises and more liquids than one knows what to do with.
08:30:55 <Ryan(132)> RSVP by 8 Oct 2019 so I know how many tables to setup on the platforms
08:30:57 <Ryan(132)> LOL
08:31:43 <CraigC(0)> does anyone know when they close the Norris Campground?
08:32:03 <ynpvisitor69> Have a good day
08:32:04 <Ryan(132)> Before then
08:32:09 <Ryan(132)> Madison is open though
08:38:15 <Rice> Which size bear spray do you guys carry, 7.2 oz or 9.2 oz?
08:38:41 <Rice> Look at the ants run...
08:38:50 <Katie(8)> No way
08:38:53 <Katie(8)> All the way up there
08:38:59 <Joe> That will mess up the dome
08:39:13 <Katie(8)> Crappola
08:39:41 <Joe> And no one cleans it nopw
08:40:03 <Joe> now*
08:40:09 <Katie(8)> I carry the large size - and in back country, I carry 2. If you have to use spray, you'll feel naked hiking out without a backup.
08:41:44 <Joe> Katie, take the Flag Raising/Lowering tour, bring some wipes and clean the dome:)
08:42:07 <CraigC(0)> :thumbsup:
08:44:38 <CraigC(0)> no one entered OF
08:47:25 <Katie(8)> I just did
08:48:11 <Joe> Every time I replay it it makes the dome dirty :)
08:48:23 <CraigC(0)> haha
08:50:06 <Katie(8)> thanks for fixing OF entry, Joe
08:50:28 <Katie(8)> I went back on static - yours is far more precise
08:50:30 <Joe> Yw
08:51:37 <Joe> I replayed several times, hard to see with the steam blowing twoards cam
08:59:30 <Joe> If they keep the camera settings the way they are now the night watch will be almost worthless on dark and low moon illumination nights, :(
09:00:16 <Katie(8)> I haven't looked at night recently. what changed?
09:04:22 <Joe> lion
09:04:23 <Lori S> Norning
09:04:26 <Lori S> haha
09:04:34 <Lori S> *Morning
09:04:47 <Katie(8)> G'morning, Lori
09:05:20 <Lori S> Was I wrong to flag the Ckepsydra entry? I can remove the flag if so.
09:05:41 <Lori S> "Clepsydra (apparently I have the Lindas)
09:06:09 <Lori S> Hi Katie
09:09:07 <Katie(8)> I have no input with regard to the Clepsydra q, except that I think if a person things something needs review, flagging is never "wrong?" Double-checking is never wrong.
09:10:42 <Katie(8)> And apparently I have Dave's keyboard this morning. ;)
09:11:17 <Lori S> Ok, I will leave it. While I am not up to speed on current FPP area activity, I would have put that as a note, not an eruption. Just me
09:11:33 <Joe> Dave has sent many of us his keyboards :)
09:11:55 <Lori S> :D
09:13:53 <Katie(8)> Haven't seen so little steam down basin in a while - I know the wind today is a factor, but still...
09:14:07 <Joe> Daisy is due
09:14:27 <Joe> last 4h 40 min ago
09:14:35 <Katie(8)> Thanks, Joe.
09:15:34 <Joe> It has been going ~2h 30 min
09:17:04 <Katie(8)> There it goes
09:17:06 <Joe> Daisy
09:18:48 <Joe> if temp goes higher and rh lower the next will be very small
09:32:32 <lori lurking> OK Dave, a local grocery store says fresh fish on Thursday, and halibut is 19.99 a pound. How much for 3 of us and how do I cook it?
09:32:36 <Joe> Katie was that reference image I sent you what you wanted it is the best resolution I can do as those are taken from online screenshots
09:33:28 <Eric (uno)> Can you send me that full res pano too Joe...I will add it here for others, if you don't mind
09:33:40 <Eric (uno)> Size doesn't matter :-F
09:33:48 <Joe> yes eric
09:33:53 <ynpvisitor3> My wife grills halibut Lori. Very good.
09:33:57 <Joe> Eric*
09:34:29 <Katie(8)> did you email it, Joe? It hasn't landed in my Inbox.
09:34:58 <Joe> yes katie
09:36:35 <Katie(8)> Found it. Stupid Outlook Junkmail folder... Glad you mentioned it. Thanks!
09:37:36 <Katie(8)> And it looks great, Joe.
09:41:08 <Joe> Katie there are updated images, look in help and settings there two img1 and pano do you want the hi res of those?
09:41:28 <Joe> Eric, it is sent
09:42:16 <lori lurking> thanks, grilling works for me! I tried to get Dave to ship me some, but I am in an area he can't ship to :(
09:42:57 <Katie(8)> That would be great. Thanks, Joe
09:43:18 <Joe> I'll email both
09:46:21 <Joe> Katie on the way
09:47:17 <Katie(8)> Thanks, Joe. I told Outlook that I trust you. :)
09:47:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Lori, another good way for halibut (and my favorite for Cod) is bake in the oven with butter and lemon juice.
09:47:51 <Joe> dangerous :)
09:48:24 <Eric (uno)> Joe...do you have the hi-res version without the labels on it? I want to give the clean slate pano for others to play with as well.
09:49:13 <Joe> I think i still have it i'll send if i do
09:49:54 <Eric (uno)> Thanks
09:50:45 <lori lurking> hmm- they have cod advertised as well. Might be a fishy weekend!
09:51:05 <Eric (uno)> I like halibut deep fried with malt and vinegar :-D
09:51:23 <Eric (uno)> with some tasty chips
09:51:33 <Lori S> Eric, you're making me miss Alaska!
09:51:52 <Katie(8)> I like halibut all of the above ways. :)
09:52:11 <Eric (uno)> You can get some nice fresh halibut F&C on the Oregon coast too
09:52:15 <Lori S> Great deep fried halibut chunks at Moose Pass, AK on the way to Seward.
09:53:07 <Eric (uno)> Astoria oregon has halibut fishing year round I believe....not to difficult or expensive to grab a charter out and catch it yourself :-D
09:53:33 <CraigC(0)> finally...... YNP bound..... laters everyone, hope to see some of you there
09:53:50 <Katie(8)> have fun, CraigC(0)!
09:53:52 <Lori S> Safe travels! See you at SB.
09:54:18 <Eric (uno)> See you there Craig
09:54:19 <GO MORNING (2)> enjoy Craig, see you at the weekend
09:57:22 <Joe> Eris Unlabled panorama is on its way
09:58:35 <Eric (uno)> Thanks Joe
09:59:00 <Joe> Katie dis yours get there
09:59:10 <Joe> Did
09:59:11 <Katie(8)> Yes, I did, thank you!
09:59:21 <Joe> Great
10:00:07 <Joe> Off to see the wizards, and i'm late again :)
10:00:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Good luck
10:01:15 <Eric (uno)> Good Luck Joe!
10:01:35 <Eric (uno)> Here is the link to the full resolution panorama without Labels: https://chat.geysertimes.org/images/ugbWebcamPanorama.png
10:02:31 <ynpvisitor31> Eric -how many images stitched together?
10:02:44 <Lori S> That's wonderful
10:04:14 <Dave from B™> ..
10:07:07 <Eric (uno)> Ask Joe on his return
10:07:18 <Eric (uno)> It's his image, I am just making it available here :-D
10:07:28 <Eric (uno)> His labeled one is over on the right
10:09:00 <Eric (uno)> It will be interesting to watch the SB temps climb as play starts happening.
10:10:35 <Lori S> He did a great job on the labeling. Work of art.
10:13:21 <Lori S> It's been a minute since I last went to the SB logger since it was down. Have to remind meself to go look now..
10:17:28 <lori lurking> Mental note: fishing in Astoria :D
10:26:21 <Eric (uno)> Where do you live Lori Lurking?
10:37:29 <Eric (uno)> So did the admin fix anything yesterday? I heard they were working on the cam
10:38:15 <Kevin L™🌵> I haven't seen any difference.
10:48:16 <lori lurking> Southeast Iowa. Up on the high ground, not on the Mississippi, but our fields are pretty water filled and more rain predicted the next week. No crops planted the month of May!
10:48:43 <lori lurking> Maybe I can stock the ponds in the fields and have a fresh catch every day!
10:48:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow.
10:49:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Hope he gets a good crop of sheetrock.
10:53:11 <Dave from B™> How's Todd doing?
10:55:11 <Lori S> My other half has relatives in Ames.
11:02:10 <lori lurking> Todd is one cranky farmer. I tried talking him in to going to North Dakota with me next week to pick up the daughter and grandkids.
11:02:59 <lori lurking> Much longer and there won't be any hoping, just the paperwork for delayed planting and watching the empty fields and then the weed control...
11:03:44 <ynpvisitor85> Lynn S method is the way Rick H did it
11:04:31 <lori lurking> I'm still searching for lodging for September, some something good should happen if there isn't a harvest!
11:09:05 <ynpvisitor85> Lori that comment is re your flag on the GT Clep post
11:09:44 <Lori S> Oh. What is the Lynn S method?
11:10:51 <ynpvisitor85> Lynn Stephens. How she was taught to record Clep pauses
11:11:24 <Lori S> I asked earlier if I should remove the flag because I wasn't up to speed. How should it be logged?
11:11:32 <ynpvisitor85> It's her observation do I posted it the way she requested
11:12:58 <ynpvisitor85> Enter the time and state it is off and duration if possible. Most don't wait for Clep pause after Ftn
11:13:25 <ynpvisitor85> Similar to issue with logging Bijou pauses
11:14:05 <Lori S> I have so much to learn. Flagged removed.
11:14:20 <Dave from B™> The ie, to me, is the confusing part....almost should be nie
11:14:23 <ynpvisitor108> It’s very odd to post ie for something that is stopped. In the era of GT, maybe it’s time for a change?
11:14:30 <Lori S> So as an ie and not a note, then?
11:14:49 <ynpvisitor85> Nie not a GT option
11:14:57 <ynpvisitor108> Or post a note! Good idea LoriS
11:15:18 <ynpvisitor85> Agree it's something that should be looked at
11:15:24 <ynpvisitor46> ie means in eruption, if it wasn't in eruption at that time...it shouldn't be posted like that IMHO
11:15:29 <Lori S> I like the nie for those that require such
11:15:41 <ynpvisitor85> Maybe someone could discuss with Will?
11:15:51 <ynpvisitor108> All Rick H ways of doing things should not be set in stone
11:16:18 <ynpvisitor108> Great man, yet he could not envision GT
11:16:21 <ynpvisitor46> potty patrol heading down to riverside
11:17:08 <ynpvisitor85> What's important for Clep or Bijou is not or. GT doesn't lend itself to that sort of post
11:17:50 <ynpvisitor108> GT only has the note feature for that
11:18:04 <Lori S> Never got to meet him, but always shared the "no life jacket/grand prismatic" story on tours. Though, I understand he got that from someone else?
11:18:22 <ynpvisitor85> GT is no excuse to discard methods of decades long use.
11:18:47 <ynpvisitor108> 85, it was not ie. You agree with that
11:19:01 <Lori S> I find the ie confusing for a pause, myself.
11:19:07 <Lori S> ip ?
11:19:10 <ynpvisitor108> It should be uniform, the way we post
11:19:22 <ynpvisitor85> Consistency thru years makes data understandable
11:19:35 <ynpvisitor46> None of Lynns other posts have ie associated with them
11:19:42 <ynpvisitor108> Maybe GT could create an Off choice
11:19:51 <ynpvisitor85> Leaving cell service now
11:19:52 <ynpvisitor46> They just log the pause and then a note with restart time if available
11:20:01 <ynpvisitor46> ie doesn't make sense
11:20:04 <GO MORNING (2)> saying its ie when it isnt is very confusing. the logbook i think people would write Clep pause and a time. I dont think Rick used GT so that's moot
11:20:22 <GO MORNING (2)> since there is a known start time, that would be consistent with other entries in GT
11:20:35 <ynpvisitor46> I think there is just some confusion, I don't see any of Lynn's other posts like that one.
11:20:37 <ynpvisitor108> He passed well before GT was around
11:21:03 <GO MORNING (2)> i know, so there was no Rick approved GT logging
11:21:38 <ynpvisitor108> And Clep is always in eruption other than the pauses. Doing it Go Morning way makes no sense either
11:22:06 <ynpvisitor108> I think notes work for this
11:22:33 <GO MORNING (2)> posting a start time makes sense, then if it stops and starts again you get an interval
11:22:45 <GO MORNING (2)> makes sense to me ... more sense than an ie when not ie
11:22:46 <ynpvisitor108> Note: clep was off at 643, back on at 645
11:23:11 <ynpvisitor46> THere are already tons of entries with pauses on GT and note with restart time.
11:23:18 <ynpvisitor108> Do pause intervals matter?
11:23:20 <GO MORNING (2)> it sounds like it was already stopped then? I have no clue
11:23:38 <GO MORNING (2)> yes if you want to watch multiple ones - if its having multiple ones
11:23:46 <GO MORNING (2)> do any geyser times matter really?
11:23:58 <ynpvisitor46> ohhh, I see...they were using the pause as IP
11:24:00 <ynpvisitor108> 46, I’ve always thought those were not correct
11:24:08 <Lori S> Howz about a "Clepsydra Pause" as a geyser name then that would be ie?
11:24:19 <ynpvisitor46> Yes, I can see both sides 208
11:24:20 <ynpvisitor108> No....
11:24:21 <ynpvisitor46> 108
11:24:46 <Lori S> Go Morning...LOL on the times
11:24:57 <GO MORNING (2)> I think in the logbook the entries were for "Clepsdra Pause" but I may be wrong
11:24:58 <ynpvisitor108> GT should be uniform, that is my opinion
11:25:03 <ynpvisitor46> Would be nice to just have a Pause identifier, like ini for any geyser eruption
11:25:16 <ynpvisitor46> Then it's easy to segment out the data for people using computers.
11:25:41 <Lori S> agree 46
11:25:53 <ynpvisitor46> It could be used for bijou or clep
11:26:17 <ynpvisitor108> Maybe GT people could address the issue
11:26:31 <ynpvisitor108> For Clep and Bijou
11:26:38 <ynpvisitor46> or any geyser where recording the pause is a significant part of the process and might want to be searched/reviewed later.
11:26:51 <GO MORNING (2)> not sure what got transcribed for pauses when the logbooks were being entered
11:26:58 <ynpvisitor108> Right now they have been entered two different ways for years
11:27:05 <Lori S> Like when Steamboat stops for 5 years? (Joke)
11:28:01 <ynpvisitor108> Graham and Lynn have recorded them differently (Clep pauses) for years now
11:28:28 <GO MORNING (2)> i have not checked, but thanks
11:28:28 <ynpvisitor108> So data is all skewed anyway as to intervals
11:28:47 <GO MORNING (2)> usually i only enter the eruption starts
11:28:55 <GO MORNING (2)> as theres no way to enter a pause
11:28:56 <Dave from B™> Good discussion everyone. I would like to hear what GT moguls have to say
11:29:09 <ynpvisitor62> no BH yet
11:29:28 <ynpvisitor62> how is BH
11:29:35 <ynpvisitor108> Me too Dave
11:29:36 <ynpvisitor62> any significant improvment?
11:29:40 <ynpvisitor46> I am sure Jake will have a pithy answer :-P
11:29:43 <Lori S> >>>>>>
11:29:54 <Dave from B™> BH is drawing a crowd
11:30:15 <ynpvisitor62> no bubblers, or steamers
11:31:14 <GO MORNING (2)> I think Jake just said "no" when i asked for a way to log pauses before.
11:31:26 <GO MORNING (2)> Anyway, if someone sees a Clep post they have to read the comments
11:31:33 <GO MORNING (2)> or not
11:32:08 <Lori S> :)
11:32:49 <GO MORNING (2)> same with Bijou
11:33:52 <Dave from B™> My concerns exist if Clep and Bijou become "normal" geysers with more time between eruptions
11:34:14 <Dave from B™> Geyser do change
11:34:20 <Lori S> Was thinking the same thing Dave.
11:36:56 <Dave from B™> I'm excited to see Lynn. It has been a couple years
11:38:56 <GO MORNING (2)> or at least since last fall :)
11:39:11 <Casey> Morning
11:39:27 <Eric> Hi Casey
11:39:42 <Casey> Hi Eric
11:42:23 <Lori S> Lots of sirens in West. Wonder where the accident is.
12:01:11 <ynpvisitor43> Grand
12:04:04 <LindaG> Bulger
12:08:14 <Rubidium Falls> nice crowd
12:09:04 <Rubidium Falls> 8 minutes or so
12:09:53 <LindaG> 2nd?
12:10:27 <Rubidium Falls> Looked strong enough
12:10:35 <Chancellor> :grand::grand: ?
12:10:49 <LindaG> I thinkm2nd
12:11:11 <Rubidium Falls> Pause wasn't obvious in steam swirl
12:11:33 <LindaG> Ok
12:11:59 <Kevin L™🌵> It was tall. Hope we have an in basin report.
12:12:12 <LindaG> I'll leave at one
12:12:47 <GO MORNING (2)> i see the Clep post has gone again, what happened?
12:14:42 <ynpvisitor68> Kyle must have deleted it
12:14:57 <GO MORNING (2)> i dont like to see posts vanishing when no replacement is put in place
12:15:11 <ynpvisitor68> Not your call
12:15:23 <GO MORNING (2)> it was a comment, not a call
12:15:55 <ynpvisitor68> Just saying that whoever posted it can delete if they want
12:16:02 <GO MORNING (2)> at least its preserved in chat
12:16:06 <ynpvisitor68> Maybe Lynn asked him to
12:16:50 <GO MORNING (2)> who knows
12:16:58 <ynpvisitor68> Maybe 2 flags made it disappear. Unknown
12:17:06 <GO MORNING (2)> could be
12:17:11 <GO MORNING (2)> it could reappear to
12:19:37 <ynpvisitor62> come on BH, I have been waiting all day
12:20:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Good chance that it went during the blackout last night.
12:21:42 <Eric (1)> The clep logging issue has been noted and raised to the GT team. I will see what kind of feedback we get.
12:22:03 <GO MORNING (2)> good luck Eric :)
12:22:33 <Eric (1)> No luck needed, I just noted it and brought it up as a source of gazer angst :-P
12:22:46 <Eric (1)> I will let Jake/Will decide it's fate
12:23:28 <Eric (1)> Something obviously needs to be done since the data is a mess and it is causing consternation between users.
12:24:05 <Eric (1)> Maybe it's just documentation on how to record geyser pauses when they are significant
12:24:16 <GO MORNING (2)> yeah, thanks. it has come up in the past too and since its an oddity that really only is a problem for one geyser its net been needed
12:24:20 <Dave from B™> Thanks Eric
12:24:30 <Eric (1)> two geysers
12:24:34 <Eric (1)> Bijou too
12:25:12 <Rice> Anybody on here ever been to Great Basin Np in Nevada? It is one of the options for a route home this summer, and wondering if it is worth it?
12:25:20 <GO MORNING (2)> well Bijou hardly gets logged and has so many pauses ... i am not aware that anyone entered it ie when its paused
12:26:00 <Dave from B™> I think HK does?
12:26:16 <Eric (1)> true...but if you are logging times as the pause, then ie kinda of makes sense.
12:26:35 <Eric (1)> it's in pause
12:26:35 <ynpvisitor48> Lynn's Clep notes always consider pauses to be "eruptions", GT-wise.
12:26:42 <GO MORNING (2)> ok
12:26:44 <ynpvisitor48> I've heard others in the past say how confusing that is.
12:26:53 <Katie(8)> I've done the drives in Great Basin, but have never been there when the cavern was open. It's a pretty drive in any case.
12:26:54 <ynpvisitor48> i agree.
12:26:57 <Eric (1)> exactly...weird and wrong IMHO, but the system currently fails to handle it
12:27:03 <ynpvisitor48> Notes for pauses are the way to go.
12:27:34 <GO MORNING (2)> reporting smething is better than nothing
12:27:36 <Eric (1)> But notes are not right either...these are series data that should be able to be examined, in context IMHO
12:27:42 <ynpvisitor26> then we need a way to retrieve Notes, imo
12:27:58 <Eric (1)> yes, but the notes could be for anything
12:28:11 <GO MORNING (2)> you can retrieve notes
12:28:23 <Eric (1)> from a data analysis perspective notes are horrible for time series events
12:28:43 <ynpvisitor48> Few people document Clep.
12:28:45 <ynpvisitor26> agreed, Eric
12:29:31 <Eric (1)> Yep, and right now, I appreciate however they collect it since there is no "right" way :-D
12:30:42 <Dave from B™> Yes, and not ruffling any GT posters is very important
12:31:49 <ynpvisitor26> I think in many cases those who seriously study one geyser or another may do things differently, but it's their deal.
12:32:36 <Eric (1)> Yes, 26...but it would be nice if GT supported those users and their analysis
12:32:41 <ynpvisitor26> and it gives them the information they need
12:35:51 <ynpvisitor4> wow nasty weather!
12:57:27 <Dave from B™> Time to go sweat. BBL
13:25:48 <KittyM> of ie
13:30:28 <GO MORNING (2)> 4h33m ftn interval ... interesting
13:39:07 <ynpvisitor89> dome
13:40:13 <ynpvisitor89> ini?
13:40:38 <Kevin L™🌵> This is the first one I have seen.
13:41:15 <ynpvisitor89> wooops, I´m not me
13:41:38 <Betty> hi Kevin
13:42:07 <Casey> Hi Betty. Are you you now?
13:42:14 <Lori S> Hi Betty
13:42:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Sie wollten sich vor uns verstecken!
13:43:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Pretty good action on Dome.
13:43:06 <Betty> I am :-)
13:43:25 <Betty> it looks really big
13:43:37 <Betty> hi Lori S
13:43:54 <Kevin L™🌵> This is a better view than you get in the basin.
13:44:06 <Lori S> Kevin, it is!
13:44:26 <Betty> it is amazing
13:44:36 <Betty> thanks for the closeup
13:44:51 <Lori S> yes, thx
13:45:08 <Betty> where is Graham
13:45:11 <Betty> ?
13:45:20 <Ryan(132)> Wow! Can we have a replay?
13:45:34 <Betty> hi Ryan
13:45:42 <ynpvisitor62> that was a nice eruption
13:45:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Joe may have a replay
13:45:57 <Betty> whosh
13:46:15 <GO MORNING (2)> zzz
13:46:17 <Betty> I love it from this view
13:46:23 <Ryan(132)> Wow!
13:46:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Pretty sure it was ini
13:46:39 <Cooper> I agree Kevin
13:46:53 <Cooper> and Betty entered it as ini
13:47:22 <Betty> lol, does not mean anything, Cooper ;-)
13:47:48 <Cooper> LOL
13:47:57 <Betty> but that was 8 min
13:47:59 <Cooper> but you seem to be smart
13:48:22 <Kevin L™🌵> She was speaking German when she was only 2.
13:48:49 <Cooper> Sure
13:49:00 <Betty> that´s why I asked help-seeking for Graham :-p
13:49:14 <GO MORNING (2)> sorry, busy now
13:49:21 <Betty> hahaha, Kevin
13:50:29 <Betty> but you´re right
13:54:45 <GO MORNING (2)> Dome?
13:55:13 <Eric (1)> that would seem faster after an ini...no?
13:55:22 <Kevin L™🌵> There is no place like Dome.
13:55:25 <Eric (1)> but it does look ie
13:55:34 <GO MORNING (2)> they are fast after an ini
13:55:38 <Kevin L™🌵> It was 1353
13:55:48 <Eric (1)> ohhh, they slow as it gets further away?
13:55:59 <GO MORNING (2)> yes
13:56:10 <GO MORNING (2)> could be every 15m or so now
13:56:11 <Eric (1)> ahhh
13:56:20 <GO MORNING (2)> then 20, tomorrow 40
13:56:23 <Eric (1)> cool, thanks
13:57:13 <Kevin L™🌵> But it will quit befor you get there.
13:57:29 <Lori S> Today, I have learned more about Dome. Thx.
13:58:40 <Lori S> I have a spinner on my cam
13:58:59 <Betty> it looks really vigorous from this view
13:59:41 <Lori S> aaand I'm back
14:00:15 <Betty> daisy ie
14:00:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Daisy 1359 ie
14:04:47 <Joe> I am back what have I missed?
14:05:01 <Kevin L™🌵> DOme ini
14:05:11 <Betty> a gorgeous Dome ini
14:05:31 <Joe> nice I'll have to look at it
14:06:16 <Joe> WOW!! that is nice
14:06:35 <Joe> first ever for me
14:08:27 <Ryan(132)> Can you share that replay, Joe?
14:08:49 <Joe> Yes Give me a few
14:08:52 <Betty> Dome
14:19:03 <Betty> LC
14:22:49 <Betty> Dome
14:27:30 <Joe> While we are waiting for dome to upload, someone asked howmany images were stiched together on the panorama, that would be 7
14:35:05 <Joe1> Ryan, and anyone here is the DOME ini https://youtu.be/zByO_wwD1Zg
14:35:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks like a CTC indicator
14:35:46 <Joe> .
14:35:47 <Joe> .
14:36:28 <Betty> a bubbler
14:37:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Graham may get BH on his shift.
14:38:05 <Joe> Kevin is this a kathy Day
14:38:50 <Kevin L™🌵> You are right. I have 6 Saturday's so I confuse easily!
14:39:16 <Joe> If so and if no one has taken her shift I can
14:40:08 <Joe> ou have not seen confused until byou've met me :)
14:40:38 <Joe> Davespeak
14:41:15 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't recall if anyone had the shift so that could be good. OF view would not be popular.
14:41:30 <Joe> Kevin did that Dome video work
14:41:55 <Joe> I'll take it
14:42:04 <Betty> thanks for the Dome replay, Joe
14:42:22 <Joe> yw, there is my answer :)
14:42:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes Joe.
14:49:18 <ynpvisitor61> Joe, I do t think anyone has kat shift tonight
14:50:09 <LindaG> *dont
14:50:14 <Joe> I'll tale it at 1600 then ;0
14:50:29 <Joe> take*
14:50:43 <Dave from B™> Joe, a replacement keyboard is on the way:)
14:51:10 <LindaG> Joe, and to borrow morning? When do you sleep?
14:51:24 <LindaG> *tomorrow
14:51:46 <Betty> is that indy on static?
14:51:58 <Joe> Linda, Dome ini video today if you have not seen one https://youtu.be/zByO_wwD1Zg
14:52:18 <LindaG> It might be Indy
14:52:19 <Betty> BHI
14:52:35 <Betty> .
14:52:36 <Betty> .
14:52:37 <Betty> .
14:52:38 <Betty> .
14:52:39 <Eric (1)> woot
14:53:08 <ynpvisitor77> :)
14:53:32 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
14:53:35 <Joe> Eric If anyoneelse asks the panorama took 7 images
14:53:48 <Betty> yay
14:53:53 <Joe> Davespeak again
14:54:48 <Eric (1)> ok
14:55:41 <Chancellor> wow, just in time for a :bee:
14:55:58 <Betty> hope we can see it
14:56:10 <LindaG> Great dome ini you can really see the water
14:56:20 <Dave from B™> during OF window?
14:56:38 <Eric (1)> Can't we go really wide and put of on the very edge?
14:57:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Still will miss it.
14:57:08 <ynpvisitor10> someone in basin should see the text and get there
14:57:18 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon all
14:57:24 <Eric (1)> Hi Jarno
14:57:32 <ynpvisitor10> maybe OF will go early
14:57:54 <Betty> evening Jarno
14:58:02 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
14:58:07 <Betty> BH maybe ie
14:58:20 <ynpvisitor90> NPS reads comments. If you want Beehive over OF tell them!
14:58:23 <Betty> can we have a fast look?
14:58:51 <Eric (1)> hahaha
14:59:59 <Joe> unfortunately we have new "orders" concerning OF :(
15:00:10 <ynpvisitor999®> how rubbish
15:00:15 <Betty> ugh :-(
15:00:30 <ynpvisitor22> No steam on static
15:00:35 <ynpvisitor90> Tell NPS!
15:00:36 <Eric (1)> BH
15:00:47 <ynpvisitor22> It is the OF webcam
15:00:49 <Eric (1)> I can see the eruption on edge of static
15:01:15 <ynpvisitor22> My static must be lagging
15:01:44 <Eric (1)> It was the OF webcam because it use to sit AT old faithful and couldn't look away from it really.
15:02:11 <Eric (1)> and it has name recognition.
15:02:24 <ynpvisitor15> Again, I say, it should be the "Upper Geyser Basin" webcam
15:02:28 <ynpvisitor22> Still no steam on static
15:02:30 <Eric (1)> Agree
15:02:42 <Eric (1)> wind is going the other direction 22...you aren't going to see steam
15:02:45 <Dave from B™> Maybe we should start calling it that
15:02:58 <ynpvisitor22> I thought you said you did, sorry
15:03:08 <ynpvisitor999®> I can't see Indy on static anymore, so likely mid or end of eruption
15:03:12 <Eric (1)> I saw the edge of the water
15:03:26 <Eric (1)> I don't think indy is going anymore either
15:03:50 <Eric (1)> so probably close to over
15:04:01 <Betty> OF
15:04:22 <ynpvisitor999®>
15:04:23 <ynpvisitor22> Maybe it hasn’t happened yet.
15:04:31 <Katie(8)> and slimed again
15:04:33 <ynpvisitor999®>
15:04:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Insult to injury
15:04:42 <Joe> argh!!!
15:04:49 <Eric (1)> look away!
15:04:51 <Betty> bäh
15:05:15 <Chancellor> :(
15:05:23 <Betty> I never thought OF could reach the new cam...
15:05:43 <Eric (1)> Again...a choice by the NPS to entertain instead of educate :-(
15:06:00 <Chancellor> never underestimate the power of Old Faithful
15:06:27 <ynpvisitor999®> OF's location is very unfortunate for us
15:06:27 <ynpvisitor90> Make sure you tell them how much you liked this over Beehive.
15:06:56 <Joe> there is BEE on static
15:07:05 <Joe> may be
15:07:10 <ynpvisitor22> BH would not be much different
15:07:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Nope :(
15:07:24 <ynpvisitor22> Poof or poof
15:07:44 <ynpvisitor13> Did BH go, its not on GT
15:07:51 <LindaG> Eric (1), I did see what Eric saw. The verynedgenof bee
15:07:51 <Eric (1)> wind direction would have been great for BH...not toward the camera!
15:08:04 <Betty> we don´t know, 13
15:08:18 <ynpvisitor90> We may never know 13
15:08:21 <LindaG> *very edge of
15:08:23 <Lori S> zoom in on runoff channels?
15:08:32 <Eric (1)> If the camera would have been on BH we would have been educated...but now we are all entertained!
15:08:49 <Cooper> this is a very interesting mystery
15:09:03 <Lori S> Making the webcam Great Again
15:09:14 <LindaG> Hi craig
15:09:21 <Eric (1)> Hey Craig....you in the UGB?
15:09:21 <LindaG> Lori S, hi
15:09:29 <ynpvisitor90> And it was such a great OF too.
15:09:31 <Joe> Looks done bh on static https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/05232019/721.jpg
15:09:39 <Lori S> Hi Linda
15:09:42 <CraigC YNP> nope, not yet, just got to West, checked into hotel
15:10:01 <Eric (1)> I think that is actually just OF steam joe
15:10:02 <CraigC YNP> waiting my turn for the bathroom, then off to the park
15:10:17 <Lori S> Craig, there's a tree outside ;)
15:10:25 <CraigC YNP> hahaha
15:10:26 <Eric (1)> You can catch the edge of BH here: https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/05232019/714.jpg
15:10:34 <Joe> OK but indy is gone at BH
15:10:39 <CraigC YNP> we stopped and watched a moose in Island Park
15:10:55 <Eric (1)> I think it started about 1458
15:10:57 <Eric (1)> https://geysercam.xyz/ugb-ynp/05232019/712.jpg
15:11:00 <ynpvisitor999®> What if Whirligig was called Old Faithful and Norris ended up being the most developed region of Yellowstone?
15:11:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome
15:11:28 <ynpvisitor22> At least you didn’t miss a good one. Conditions are not great
15:11:55 <ynpvisitor22> Makes no sense 999
15:12:36 <Eric (1)> hmmm, these all seem like terrible reason to now watch an awesome cone geyser like BH erupt and instead watch a geyser that erupts 15 or 16 times a day erupt.
15:12:42 <ynpvisitor22> Is static 5 minutes off now?
15:12:44 <Eric (1)> now = not
15:13:07 <Eric (1)> 3-4 minutes fast
15:13:25 <ynpvisitor90> Preaching to the choir here. Tell NPS.
15:13:25 <Eric (1)> Dome ie
15:13:41 <Eric (1)> You think they care? I kind of doubt it
15:13:41 <Joe1> Jarno ever seena dome ini? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zByO_wwD1Zg&t=68s
15:13:42 <ynpvisitor26> Don't give OF a bad rap, it's a fantastic geyser
15:13:51 <Lori S> Well, we just need a second webcam, that's all.
15:14:02 <Eric (1)> What did I say that isn't true?
15:14:32 <Eric (1)> It's a fine geyser....but there are many more chances to catch it that more limited time geysers.
15:14:54 <Lori S> Reminds me of Nat Geo Live flying over SB in stram pahse last year and not a mention...
15:15:11 <Lori S> *steam phase
15:15:19 <Eric (1)> Yep...it's ignorance Lori
15:15:41 <Lori S> and we all know that's bliss
15:15:47 <ynpvisitor999®> True, 26, OF is a fantastic geyser in multiple ways, but it's the NPS saying "Look, we know you like your other geyser, but [i]OF is most important so must be in view whenever in window even though we already have a static cam on it[/i]"
15:16:20 <ynpvisitor999®> That's probably what's bugging most, if not all, of us here
15:16:41 <LindaG> Sigh
15:16:56 <Joe> Jarno Look at my post at 1513:42 about Dome
15:17:15 <ynpvisitor999®> I have it open in a tab, will be checking it out now :)
15:22:20 <LindaG> Joe, thanks for providing the dome link that was very cool, love the water
15:23:07 <Joe> Kevin caught it, very nice
15:24:19 <ynpvisitor90> Here is the contact link for NPS. https://www.nps.gov/yell/contacts.htm
15:24:47 <LindaG> Thanks Kevin
15:24:51 <Joe> I know Graham strives to get a Dome ini in the park, this is not the same as being there but I think it is great!!
15:25:27 <LindaG> Sure is
15:25:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Some nice bursts in there, especially around half-way the video. Shame that steam covered most of the early eruption action
15:27:50 <Dave from B™> This conversation always brings me back to the "What if OF went dormant" scenario. If NPS would promote all geysers instead of 1 (How many T-shirts have a geyser besides OF on it?)
15:28:11 <Dave from B™> Then tourism wouldn't drop off so much if that scenario occurred.
15:28:51 <ynpvisitor999®> none I guess. Well, maybe in the next years one with SB on it. Little chance though, but possible
15:29:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome
15:30:34 <Betty> time to get some sleep
15:30:42 <Betty> night all
15:30:45 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
15:31:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Night Betty.
15:31:09 <Eric (1)> Night Betty
15:31:25 <Dave from B™> Nite Betty
15:36:19 <LindaG> Did you know if you touch a prediction it tells you how many minutes till the window opens?
15:36:37 <LindaG> I guess I never touched one
15:36:56 <Dave from B™> I can't even get my Predictions Bar to expand
15:37:07 <Dave from B™> I have to click on it to open in another window
15:37:08 <ynpvisitor999®> On laptop or desktop you can hover over it with a mouse
15:37:25 <Kevin L™🌵> You have to spell it right Dave.
15:37:34 <Dave from B™> :P
15:37:46 <Joe> that is a nice feature thanks to Eric
15:37:57 <LindaG> Ask Eric that setting can be changed
15:44:06 <Joe> Hi Graham
15:44:18 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Graham
15:44:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome
15:44:46 <GO MORNING (2)> hello.....glad someone is catching DOme :) checking the video
15:45:56 <Eric (1)> Dave, did you click the little [+] sign in the top right corner of that panel?
15:46:16 <GO MORNING (2)> it is rather fuzzy
15:47:38 <Dave from B™> Mine is a "-" sign and nothing happens when I click. It works for me on my laptop but not my computer at work
15:47:57 <Joe> this camera compared to the last one...I wont say it...yes I will sucks big time
15:48:12 <GO MORNING (2)> loks nice 3min in
15:49:03 <Dave from B™> I have to go finish in the market. Have a great evening everyone!
15:49:14 <Dave from B™> Have a safe trip Eric
15:49:18 <Joe> bye Dave
15:49:20 <Eric (1)> Clear your cookies for the page dave and everything will reset
15:49:26 <Eric (1)> Night dave
15:49:29 <Eric (1)> and thanks
15:49:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Night Dave
15:49:57 <ynpvisitor999®> bye Dave
15:50:50 <Joe> Jarno, is Uni about done? for this year?
15:51:39 <GO MORNING (2)> Dome initial was nice, thanks for catching and posting it
15:51:59 <Joe> Kevin caught it
15:52:24 <GO MORNING (2)> Thanks Kevin and Joe
15:52:40 <ynpvisitor999®> couple of weeks left - 5 or so if I recall correctly Joe
15:52:41 <GO MORNING (2)> is it time for Ftn again?
15:54:36 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, 4 weeks now that I have checked my timetable
15:54:53 <Joe> nice
15:59:46 <LindaG> So Joe and I made a deal I'm taking cam
16:00:31 <GO MORNING (2)> must be time for Giant then
16:00:43 <GO MORNING (2)> or a moose
16:00:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't worry about missing BH.
16:01:16 <LindaG> Are you out of am cant take control
16:01:31 <LindaG> *cam
16:01:46 <LindaG> There we go
16:01:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Just released it.
16:01:57 <LindaG> Got it
16:02:34 <LindaG> That's my worst nightmare knowing bee is going and showing OF
16:03:12 <Joe> Daisy in less than 20 min
16:03:18 <GO MORNING (2)> you need to try harder if thats your WORST nightmare
16:03:22 <Kevin L™🌵> It is horrible.
16:03:59 <ynpvisitor999®> It'd be even worse if we knew Giantess was on the verge of going, but OF needs to have full attention because it's in window
16:04:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
16:04:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Giantess we can do
16:04:41 <GO MORNING (2)> bulger
16:04:47 <ynpvisitor82> 😊
16:04:49 <ynpvisitor999®> minor
16:05:12 <Joe> tonight with the present camera seetings will be very bad,it's light gathering is severly reduced
16:05:31 <ynpvisitor999®> how about backlighting?
16:05:31 <ynpvisitor82> I get to choose my nightmares 🙄
16:06:02 <Joe> did not work at all for me last night
16:06:22 <ynpvisitor999®> hm, you'd think it'd work
16:06:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Pretty thick clouds last night. Looks to be the same tonight.
16:07:28 <ynpvisitor999®> maybe you can try backlighting while the cam is zoomed in
16:07:55 <ynpvisitor999®> Turban?
16:08:05 <ynpvisitor999®> or WT?
16:08:38 <Joe> It looks like they changed the settings to reduce the glare from the OFL lights and the parking lot lights which really diminished the light gathering ability of the camera
16:09:07 <ynpvisitor999®> how helpful of them
16:09:29 <Joe> you cannot see enough to zoom in even with moon light
16:10:16 <GO MORNING (2)> i hope they change it ... and you can see something. It has been nice to go out with Joe and DaveM's times in hand
16:11:00 <Joe> in my opion this was a mistake that will never be corrected
16:11:38 <ynpvisitor999®> well, now that you know that, you can ask them to reverse the glare reduction. Having glare isn't wanted, but on the other hand not being able to see anything at night from the far more important geysers isn't helpful either
16:11:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
16:11:46 <Joe> Bulger
16:12:05 <ynpvisitor999®> another minor it seems
16:13:06 <Joe> daisy ~7 min
16:13:30 <LindaGp> 👍
16:14:19 <Joe> Already have sent emails to those responsible
16:15:22 <Joe> the Flag is whiping the pole again
16:16:17 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
16:16:30 <Joe> yep
16:17:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
16:18:03 <Joe> bbl
16:24:24 <Eric (1)> BTW graham, I was only 1 minute early for Grand last night ;-P
16:27:17 <Eric (1)> https://phys.org/news/2019-05-aftershocks-earthquake-yellowstone-.html
16:28:23 <Eric (1)> Interesting article about hebgen lake quake and the after shocks..including the swarms we had the last couple years in yellowstone
16:28:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger ie
16:29:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Can we zoom in to Bulger please?
16:29:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Might be seeing steam from Bulger's Hole next to it
16:29:51 <Eric (1)> oh ya...cool
16:30:14 <Eric (1)> its the correct location jarno
16:33:35 <ynpvisitor999®> On that article, I bet certain people will be using this article of the swarm as proof that scientists are hiding something
16:33:46 <LindaGp> Sorry missed your request
16:34:28 <ynpvisitor999®> next time better :)
16:36:40 <Eric (1)> Here is a link to the full article: https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/action/downloadSupplement?doi=10.1029%2F2019GL082376&file=grl58922-sup-0001-2019GL082376-SI.pdf
16:37:00 <Eric (1)> One of the co-authors is even a regular here :-D
16:38:18 <Eric (1)> OF
16:38:18 <LindaGp> OF
16:38:33 <Eric (1)> I should have said the full research paper...not article.
16:39:12 <ynpvisitor999®> slightly better wind direction this time around
16:41:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Wonder what would happen to the park visitor numbers if OF went dormant.
16:43:47 <ynpvisitor999®> they'd probably plunge by 1 or 2 million, likely even more
16:45:40 <GO MORNING (2)> build a big VEC in Lamar all about wolves
16:46:33 <GO MORNING (2)> close the road at Grand Prismatic?
16:46:50 <ynpvisitor999®> Actually, if Yellowstone will still be about geysers, they'd probably advertise Daisy as 'the "new" Old Faithful'
16:47:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Wouldn't be Aurum, that's for sure.
16:47:58 <GO MORNING (2)> haha
16:48:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion might be worth advertising in the event of OF becoming dormant. Reasonably regular (especially during series) and close to already-built facilities
16:49:15 <GO MORNING (2)> OT?
16:49:27 <ynpvisitor999®> does look like it
16:50:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
16:50:11 <GO MORNING (2)> Clep will be the star .. unless it shuts off for 80min like today ... oops
16:52:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Might be that Great Fountain will be the new star. Quite regular once you know the duration. Fountain may be a good OF 'repacement' too
16:52:36 <ynpvisitor999®> replacement*
16:53:07 <GO MORNING (2)> not frequent enough tho Jarno
16:53:15 <GO MORNING (2)> Jewel in Biscuit Basin is good
16:53:44 <GO MORNING (2)> visitors only want a 20min wait
16:54:56 <Kevin L™🌵> I could see Daisy, but that would probably be the only one. And it is far enough out that probably 70% wouldn't go there anyway.
16:56:46 <GO MORNING (2)> just hope it doesnt go to 3h intervals and throw in another 7h interval
17:00:08 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
17:00:35 <ynpvisitor999®> minor
17:04:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand would be good right now, but we have all seen how quickly Grand can change.
17:04:49 <ynpvisitor999®> mhm
17:08:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
17:09:07 <LindaGp> For you jarno 😊
17:09:17 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :D
17:17:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
17:18:03 <ynpvisitor999®> another minor
17:23:24 <LindaGp> Come on geysers, do something
17:23:56 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand maybe in a few minutes or so
17:24:10 <ynpvisitor114> Grott's going, dows that count?
17:24:19 <ynpvisitor114> Grotto^
17:24:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle probably within half an hour or so
17:24:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger soon, too :)
17:25:27 <ynpvisitor999®> Turban?
17:26:04 <GO MORNING (2)> none of our posters are there...maybe at Ftn?
17:26:26 <ynpvisitor999®> HK might be at Grand, but not posting Turbans
17:27:29 <GO MORNING (2)> i dont think he posts them, but he is quite likely there
17:27:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
17:28:20 <ynpvisitor999®> minor with a brief pause(?)
17:28:54 <Eric (1)> Apparently HK sees no value in posting turbans, even when it helps others. Sad.
17:29:04 <Eric (1)> Oh well.
17:30:00 <GO MORNING (2)> well he is busy capturing data
17:30:31 <Eric (1)> uhhh, ya...those turban times come pretty quickly :-P
17:31:17 <Kevin L™🌵> I think he would post it but he doesn't have cell service,
17:32:39 <ynpvisitor999®> That he does not want his name in the entry - fair enough, but not wanting V&T data on GT because seconds are not included, that's just wrong. With seconds eruption data is more useful, but in the grand scheme of things it don't think it matters much at all
17:33:27 <Eric (1)> No, graham posted the turban times from his notes yesterday and he got pretty upity about it. https://geysertimes.org/eruption.php?id=1079697
17:33:34 <GO MORNING (2)> some people are very protective of information and its their right to do that
17:34:15 <LindaGp> Making dinner, but watching
17:34:44 <GO MORNING (2)> Udo tried to control his comments although I think thats against GT rules
17:35:52 <Eric (1)> I totally disagree with him using the comments as some social platform for his data agenda too. It's not what they are meant for and that comment is likely to get deleted.
17:36:38 <GO MORNING (2)> people can make any comments they want
17:36:47 <Eric (1)> Jake is pretty adamant about GT not being a social/political platform.
17:36:59 <GO MORNING (2)> i dont take offense to it, its happened with different people over the years
17:37:20 <GO MORNING (2)> most comments on posts dont get read much
17:37:40 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
17:37:58 <Eric (1)> Nothing to do with you. It's the comment wasn't germaine to the entry or the data. He already flagged it and you fixed it.
17:38:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Next Bulger in about 10 minutes
17:43:57 <LindaGp> 9 min to OF
17:44:25 <Eric (1)> I think Grand should go before then
17:44:39 <GO MORNING (2)> Grand is late
17:46:04 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon kc
17:46:10 <LindaGp> Just preparing you
17:46:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
17:47:13 <ynpvisitor114> We might miss the next Bulger because of it.
17:47:13 <Eric (1)> Alright mighty cam watchers....I am going to shut my system down. See you on the other side of the cam :-D
17:47:26 <ynpvisitor999®> Have fun Eric!
17:47:32 <Eric (1)> Thanks Jarno
17:47:39 <LindaGp> Bye don't forget to wave
17:47:43 <ynpvisitor114> Bye Eric. I hear it's much different in person.
17:48:06 <Eric (1)> Hopefully I can get some selfies with some of my other gazer friends this week :-D
17:48:20 <Eric (1)> It's colder :-P
17:48:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Take care. Wave when OF isn't due.
17:49:21 <Eric (1)> Will do Kevin...hope you guys don't get too board without the riff raff hanging out here.
17:49:59 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if Grotto is in marathon at the moment
17:50:07 <kcmule> howdy
17:51:42 <LindaGp> kcmule, hi
17:52:58 <ynpvisitor114> Hard to say without a report from earlier in the day. But it seems like most Grotto eruptions lately have been long duration.
17:58:59 <ynpvisitor999®> of course Bulger goes major while the cam is on OF
17:59:20 <kcmule> hi Linda
18:02:03 <LindaGp> I just noticed there is a 13 minute diff between of predictions! Yikes
18:02:37 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like a calculation error
18:02:43 <LindaGp> If mps is wrong I'm going to be here a whie
18:03:55 <LindaGp> Shaking my head
18:13:16 <LindaGp> OF
18:15:25 <LindaGp> You guys are awfully quiet
18:16:41 <ynpvisitor114> Waiting for Grand/Castle to join the conversation.
18:17:07 <ynpvisitor999®> OF's a long, so time to pan to down basin :)
18:17:14 <LindaGp> Soon
18:17:53 <LindaGp> Yes I know but I have my instructions
18:18:43 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle 1816
18:18:59 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand ie
18:19:01 <LindaGp> Grand
18:19:03 <LindaGp> Castle
18:19:06 <GO MORNING (2)> zzzzz
18:20:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Boy, I am so glad we can see all the geyser erupting.
18:21:56 <GO MORNING (2)> could have 5 Grands today
18:22:53 <ynpvisitor114> Castle is stopping a lot. So far it's managed to restart each time, but it doesn't inspire confidence.
18:23:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle does that throughout its eruption until roughly the 15-minute mark or so. Might be pausing more frequently due to it currently having a tendency to do minors
18:25:06 <GO MORNING (2)> Ftn in a stall .. i wonder what will erupt?
18:25:29 <LindaGp> Bulger
18:26:28 <LindaGp> And it's not a minor
18:26:47 <ynpvisitor999®> woohoo
18:27:59 <ynpvisitor999®> some nice, tall jets from Castle
18:29:55 <ynpvisitor999®> T1C
18:30:04 <ynpvisitor999®> TSB is in basin :)
18:30:51 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum 1828
18:31:04 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle major
18:34:32 <LindaGp> I haven't even made it to geyser hill and now daisy is due
18:34:54 <GO MORNING (2)> woohoo Scott Bryan posted Grand
18:35:01 <GO MORNING (2)> didnt know he was going to be in the park
18:35:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
18:35:34 <LindaGp> Yay
18:36:28 <GO MORNING (2)> Aurum too
18:37:22 <GO MORNING (2)> did you hear anything from Craig yet?
18:38:15 <ynpvisitor999®> I have seen him in chat a few hours ago. He was checking into his hotel at the time he came on here
18:38:23 <LindaGp> 1 inthink he was on earlier
18:39:37 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Cooper
18:39:59 <LindaGp> Is castle spiking again?
18:40:10 <ynpvisitor999®> it's transitioning to steam phase
18:40:37 <ynpvisitor999®> so spiking while it's doing that is the usual behaviour
18:41:10 <LindaGp> Inthought it was done qith water phase so I guess not
18:41:41 <LindaGp> Im going to geyser hill
18:42:05 <ynpvisitor999®> can you zoom in on LS?
18:43:23 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks :)
18:43:25 <ynpvisitor999®> LS ie

20:35:11 <LindaGp> Looks like it's getting ready.just caught me inwas going to set it to night time
20:35:44 <LindaGp> Looks like maybe bee to grand would be good
20:36:16 <Kevin L™🌵> That would be good
20:40:24 <LindaGp> Well good night all
20:40:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Night
20:41:27 <LindaGp> I'm out of cam
20:51:11 <Joe> Hi everyome
20:51:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
20:52:33 <Joe> Lets catch daisy then do what ever needs done, its going to be very dark soon
20:53:28 <Joe> 2h 18 min ago
20:54:30 <Joe> might have gone as that is the timing of the last two
20:56:24 <Joe> Daisy
21:03:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Maybe you will get more light tonight.
21:03:58 <Joe> Looks like the cam has been up steady since 0520
21:04:21 <Joe> I sure hope so Kevin
21:04:28 <Kevin L™🌵> It was great today.
21:05:57 <Joe> well OF in a bit, then back to here
21:07:48 <Joe> I rarely get responses to my emails, so I don't know if it will be more of the same
21:12:37 <CraigC YNP> did anyone see me waving at OF
21:13:08 <Joe> What time craig
21:13:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Only if you looked like an ant.
21:14:36 <CraigC YNP> must have been the 1638, cuz we were at Grand after that
21:15:25 <Kevin L™🌵> We would have missed you at BH.
21:15:44 <CraigC YNP> we saw the riverside as we were driving in lower hams, but VEC never had it entered
21:16:02 <CraigC YNP> we sat by TSB at Grand
21:19:11 <ynpvisitor26> did you stop by Fountain CraigC YNP?
21:20:08 <CraigC YNP> no, the crowds on the boardwalks turned me off so we drove on by
21:20:38 <ynpvisitor26> sounds interesting out there
21:20:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Did TSB sign your book?
21:21:25 <CraigC YNP> I didn't bring my book. I asked if he knew how to navigate the digital edition on my phone, and he knew about as little as I do
21:25:00 <Kevin L™🌵> He is such a wonderful person. He used to give the gazers tours of interesting places. My favorite two were White Creek and Pocket Basin. Sadly you can no longer access either place. :(
21:28:39 <CraigC YNP> I'm glad I got to meet him, he is an icon in this interest
21:34:00 <Kevin L™🌵> One of the greats for sure. One of the few left that were there when I first started gazing. Saw my first full moon geyser with him along with John Muller, Herb Warren, Paul and Suzanne, and a host of others. Someone called LE on us as "a drunken party on Geyser Hill".
21:35:26 <CraigC YNP> how cool, sounds like a great memory
21:35:49 <Kevin L™🌵> It had an awesome moonbow.
21:36:25 <Kevin L™🌵> When the fuzz came running up I was sure glad he was there.
21:44:57 <Joe> If it gets totally dark I'll put it on OF until moon rise
22:01:35 <Joe> Terrible light gathering
22:24:06 <Joe> well....nothing to see here
