03:31:29 <LindaG(5)> So light out there
03:31:46 <LindaG(5)> Hi joe
03:32:12 <Joe> Hi Linda
03:32:46 <LindaG(5)> Did they fix night mode?
03:33:56 <LindaG(5)> Oh full moon
04:43:33 <ynpvisitor78> fluffy
04:45:17 <LindaG(5)> Pretty view
05:16:07 <Joe> Hi Craig
05:17:12 <CraigC> hey Joe, how's it going
05:17:55 <Joe> Great, Craig and you?
05:18:37 <CraigC> good, you caught lots of stuff last night
05:19:33 <Joe> Good night, some camera dropouts but not bad
05:26:06 <CraigC> Marmot Cave ie
05:38:44 <LindaG(5)> CraigC, hi
05:43:17 <CraigC> hey Linda
05:43:45 <CraigC> squatch lives
05:58:01 <CraigC> Marmot Cave
05:59:13 <CraigC> lot of steam at grove
06:00:50 <CraigC> is bulger erupting?
06:01:46 <CraigC> something else
06:01:52 <CraigC> right where the person is
06:02:39 <CraigC> I don't know what that steam is riught by the boardwalk there
06:02:51 <CraigC> next to Twilight Spring
06:03:48 <CraigC> could you tell if the person was on this side of it or not?
06:04:19 <Joe> I could not
06:04:46 <CraigC> Tardy and Sawmill are on this side
06:05:18 <CraigC> but I believe they would be more left
06:06:22 <Joe> Was hoping Rside would erupt, but now OF window
06:06:47 <CraigC> can you try one mor etime to see if it will focus up closer there
06:07:41 <Joe> Bulger
06:07:48 <CraigC> thanks
06:08:58 <CraigC> the depth of field gets a little wonky when the focus hasn't settled in
06:09:52 <CraigC> Oblong looked closer to Bulger than it is when you zoomed
06:11:01 <Joe> Would you post bulger?
06:11:03 <CraigC> that steam may have been Sawmill, but I am Uncertain :)
06:11:13 <CraigC> yeah
06:15:26 <ynpvisitor1> Craig, that is a phrase I have not heard since long :-)
06:15:47 <CraigC> hey Betty
06:15:55 <Betty> lol
06:16:33 <CraigC> dang, I thought I made it up
06:17:12 <CraigC> oh what a tangled web we weave
06:17:28 <Betty> is that the webmaster?
06:17:47 <CraigC> I bet you'll tell me someone else has said that, too? ;)
06:17:48 <Joe> :)
06:17:54 <Betty> is that the webmaster?;-)#
06:18:00 <CraigC> LOL
06:18:27 <Betty> maybe he can improve the connection ;-)
06:19:13 <Betty> but as far he did a lousy job
06:20:08 <Betty> of
06:28:00 <CraigC> anemone little
06:29:10 <CraigC> is that water?
06:29:28 <Joe> looked like
06:30:41 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if 'Steamy Hill' would've been a better name for Geyser Hill
06:30:48 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all, afternoon Betty
06:30:54 <CraigC> hey Jarno
06:31:06 <Betty> afternoon Jarno
06:31:28 <Joe> Craig I must frustrate you every time you see something I move
06:31:40 <Joe> Hi Jarno
06:32:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> might as well go for a 1 d interval now
06:32:29 <Betty> Riverside ie
06:32:36 <Joe> Riverside ie
06:33:10 <Betty> morning Graham
06:33:29 <CraigC> Joe, I was wondering the other way around
06:33:38 <CraigC> hey Graham
06:33:41 <Joe> :)
06:33:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> morning all
06:33:54 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Graham
06:34:10 <Joe> morning Graham
06:36:38 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, on your last visit, did Sawmill put out much steam?
06:37:03 <Joe> CC should be here soon
06:37:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> not much steam. the water level rises and falls in a small range with the system
06:37:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> so more steam when its up
06:37:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> most steam is from Churn and Tardy which overflows
06:37:46 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, at 600 there was a plume of steam right around there, not sure where it came from
06:38:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> probably not an eruption
06:40:33 <CraigC> if I remember right, I think it was the second little tree to the right of Sprinkler
06:41:15 <Betty> would be Churn for me
06:41:31 <CraigC> it looked this side of churn
06:41:49 <Joe> Craig I just looked at it again it was steam from sawmill, but mostly early morning steam
06:42:01 <CraigC> Joe, thanks!
06:42:07 <Betty> now I´m Uncertain ;-) lol
06:42:12 <CraigC> LOL
06:44:01 <Joe> Churn was the other side of bw from where Craig was indicating
06:45:50 <Joe> Ryan pointed out sawmill steam to me when we were discussing Churn a few weeks ago
06:48:50 <Joe> On here the word Churn looks like chum to me and my mind goes there, I used lots of chum when fishing off the Florida coast
06:50:56 <Betty> lol
06:51:02 <Joe> I needed a bigger boat :)
06:51:17 <CraigC> Joe Brody with Quint
06:51:19 <ynpvisitor999®> morning CC
06:51:23 <ynpvisitorCC> Moring everyone
06:51:24 <CraigC> hey CC
06:51:42 <Joe> Hi CC
06:52:17 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Joe and Craig
06:52:20 <CraigC> haha
06:52:23 <ynpvisitorCC> Got the camera
06:52:35 <Joe> good
06:52:35 <Betty> morning CC
06:52:50 <ynpvisitorCC> Hey Betty...it has been a while
06:53:31 <ynpvisitorCC> miserable day here in CT..rain expected for most of the week
06:57:28 <ynpvisitorCC> was the last OF a Long or short?
06:57:41 <Joe> Daisy
06:57:42 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
06:57:43 <Betty> Daisy
06:58:09 <Joe> It was hard to tell but I think liog
06:58:22 <ynpvisitorCC> okay ...thanks
06:58:35 <Betty> long
06:59:13 <ynpvisitor40> Nice daisy
06:59:33 <Betty> 5 frames on static archive
06:59:54 <Betty> where water is visible
07:00:01 <LindaG(5)> ynpvisitorCC, Betty, hi
07:00:07 <Betty> morning Linda
07:00:13 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Linda
07:00:59 <Betty> CC, did you see there was a 3d 3hr Steamboat interval?
07:01:17 <Joe> We have boots on ground Dirk A
07:01:18 <ynpvisitorCC> Yes...crazy!
07:01:59 <LindaG(5)> Katie wasn't happy, it snuck in on her
07:02:23 <LindaG(5)> Guess she was planning on being there tomorrow
07:02:32 <Joe> South Bubblers
07:02:53 <Joe> ?
07:02:54 <Betty> bummer for her :-(
07:03:24 <Joe> nope on bubblers
07:06:52 <Joe> LA
07:07:03 <CraigC> Marmot Cave
07:07:41 <Joe> BA
07:09:56 <CraigC> feature above Marmot Cave looks to be erupting
07:10:08 <Joe> yep
07:11:28 <Joe> LC
07:12:13 <CraigC> raven
07:12:28 <Joe> nice
07:12:39 <CraigC> let's name her Lenore?
07:12:50 <Joe> :)
07:12:51 <Betty> a so called early bird
07:13:06 <ynpvisitor62> I've been think
07:13:31 <ynpvisitor999®> isn't that feature above Marmot Cave named 'Mouth'
07:13:39 <Betty> no
07:13:48 <Betty> mouth is next to bw
07:13:48 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, Mouth is lower, right by the BW
07:13:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> Mouth is below MC, close to the boardwalk
07:14:03 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks
07:14:12 <ynpvisitorCC> Morning Graham
07:14:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> there are at least 3 small UNNG above MC. there is alsi Inverted somewhere there
07:14:32 <lc> morning all
07:14:33 <CraigC> hey lc
07:14:56 <lc> Graham, any thoughts on SB?
07:14:58 <Betty> morning lc
07:15:34 <ynpvisitor62> With the steamboat I caught last night it had 5 silent pauses, but according to polly it had a 3 hour duration eruption, is that correct?
07:15:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> its amazing
07:16:05 <CraigC> ynpvisitor62, are you Ryan S.?
07:16:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> congrats Cooper
07:16:13 <Betty> hi Cooper
07:16:18 <CraigC> oh, hey Cooper
07:16:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> its hard to say, when it keeps switching etween steam and water its not eay to come up with a duration
07:16:39 <Cooper> Thanks, but very odd, did not expect it to go when I got there
07:16:54 <CraigC> Cooper, look at bbev's GT entry
07:16:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> were you there in the storm waiting for it?
07:17:07 <Betty> nice timing then
07:17:46 <Cooper> GO STEAMBOAT, yes, was about to get up and head down to cistern and then boom
07:18:11 <CraigC> bye Lenore
07:18:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice. was it splashing well when you were there?
07:19:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> the Seismo has similarities to other eruptions, Set 17 with pauses was weak to start
07:19:40 <Cooper> Somewhat, but not that much NV vertical
07:20:15 <Cooper> And I only got there 15 minutes before the eruption
07:20:28 <LindaG(5)> Cooper, lucky duck
07:20:28 <CraigC> fortunate
07:20:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> will be curious if this is a star tof shorter intervals or something unpleasant
07:20:58 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, ditto..... all the mud and rocks
07:21:41 <LindaG(5)> Why would it all of a sudden of a "D"
07:21:42 <CraigC> look above marmot
07:21:46 <Cooper> Lots of rocks, and all mud, a few rocks landed on the upper deck, yet somehow nobody got hit, which is good
07:21:49 <GO STEAMBOAT> i thik the mud depends on the runoff pattern and wind, how much crap gets washed into the vent
07:22:42 <CraigC> I wonder if that was Inverted
07:23:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> i dnt think i have seen Inverted tho, just 3 other UNNG
07:24:01 <CraigC> it was about in line with Pendant
07:24:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> two would probably be straight back from MC and a bit on the Lion side. One would be further right
07:24:19 <CraigC> MC is erupting again
07:24:44 <Cooper> Does anyone here have any idea why it had such a short interval, and minimal seismo trace?
07:25:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> eismo was like Sept 17 which had pauses too
07:25:11 <Betty> yes...it´s a geyser
07:25:20 <Betty> it does that
07:25:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> last year te short interval lead into the disturbance
07:25:32 <Cooper> Science was my best answer
07:25:35 <CraigC> shhhhhhhh
07:25:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> hipefullly thats not the case this year
07:26:12 <Joe> that word must not be said :(
07:26:25 <CraigC> "Science"? ;)
07:26:33 <Joe> :)
07:26:38 <Betty> lol
07:26:53 <Betty> Voldemort?
07:27:12 <CraigC> suffice to say, the word we cannot say
07:27:19 <Cooper> Well I am heading into the park , hoping for Beehive, BOO DISTURBANCE
07:27:31 <CraigC> enjoy
07:27:34 <Joe> argh!!
07:27:35 <LindaG(5)> But why would a short interval cause 'the word that must not be said'?
07:27:57 <CraigC> not 'cause', but be reflective of
07:28:12 <Betty> have fun, Cooper
07:28:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> it would likely be an effect of the oncoming D having already started
07:28:53 <lc> that would be my thought Graham.
07:28:53 <LindaG(5)> Ok
07:29:28 <LindaG(5)> Or opens channels collapse because of activity?
07:30:16 <LindaG(5)> Or too much activity
07:30:45 <lc> last year after a short interval, 4 days+, the next eruption 20 day interval.
07:30:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> D usually impact a largearea, and has been occurring with or without SB, so I dont think SB makes one happen
07:31:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> was that your first SB Cooper?
07:31:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> hope you get to see it tho Linda
07:32:06 <LindaG(5)> I'm with a traveling buddy so not sure whether ill make it, maybe
07:32:48 <LindaG(5)> What kind of car protection is necessary?
07:33:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least a windshield cover, I used a plastic picnic table cover
07:33:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> then it depends if you care about car paint
07:34:01 <LindaG(5)> It will be a rental
07:34:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> a waterproof car cover works
07:34:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> the windshied cover will keep it clear so you can see well
07:34:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> beynd that i have not heard of any rental return problems, although my car hasnt been slimed
07:35:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> Art may know more.
07:35:01 <Betty> or what you use to cover the floor while painting
07:35:10 <LindaG(5)> Maybe ill work on seeing bewhive 😊 start out small
07:35:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> last year they had parking setup on the junction acceleration lanes which is where I parked. they hadnt dont it this year when i was there
07:36:06 <Joe> bewhive is rarely seen :)
07:36:10 <Betty> parking setup last year was great
07:36:34 <Betty> they did not do it again this year?
07:36:43 <LindaG(5)> Changed our last night to OF snow lodge so ill have more time for geyser hill
07:37:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> it wasnt setup Mem Day
07:37:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice Linda
07:37:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> night-time Grand is fun too
07:39:22 <LindaG(5)> Yeah I wonder where that griz is with her cub. 🙄
07:40:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha, thats even more fun :)
07:42:55 <LindaG(5)> 😊
07:46:42 <LindaG(5)> Joe, maybe I'll be the first Joe to see bewhive
07:49:10 <lc> bbl
07:50:32 <LindaG(5)> lc, hi and bye
07:53:37 <Betty> I´m out too, to grab a big cup of icecream :-)
07:54:33 <Betty> what is the steam to the edge of bw in foreground? looks like a small steaming hole
07:55:14 <Betty> or just runoff steam. bbl
07:55:27 <Joe> There are three "cracks' there that steam
07:56:06 <Joe> some days they show very well
07:59:53 <CraigC> hey Kat
08:00:26 <Kat> Hi Craig! Happy Fathers Day to the fathers out there!
08:00:52 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kat
08:01:01 <Kat> HI Jarno!
08:01:13 <ynpvisitorCC> Hi Kathy
08:01:19 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
08:01:29 <Kat> Just in time! Hey CC!
08:01:45 <ynpvisitorCC> How is yor brotherdoing?
08:03:53 <Kat> Pretty good, a few complications but he is on the mend! Thank God!
08:04:54 <ynpvisitorCC> Are you back in Florida?
08:06:28 <Kat> Yes - and it has rained every day since I got home and it's so hot! I may need to rethink summers in Florida!
08:07:42 <Kat> This heat limits what I can do outside because of my MS. I loved the cooler and cold temps in the Park!
08:08:35 <CraigC> AL
08:11:35 <LindaG(5)> Kat, summers in yellowstone!
08:12:45 <Kat> I could but that involves so much planning! Sounds like a good idea to me but not to other family members! :)
08:13:15 <Kat> I don't know if I can handle the traffic!
08:13:17 <CraigC> depression probably
08:13:47 <Kat> Bee is on the menu today! Woop Woop!
08:14:00 <Kat> Looks like Craig!
08:14:06 <LindaG(5)> Maine? Have a cousin that juggled between key west and Maine.
08:14:24 <CraigC> pretty sure it erupted but I couldnt see water through the steam
08:14:43 <Kat> I actually have family in Maine! and CT, I would love to go there!
08:15:22 <LindaG(5)> I hate the heat, knocks me out
08:15:59 <CraigC> AB?
08:17:09 <CraigC> yeah, saw water that time
08:18:16 <CraigC> old tardy

08:20:46 <CraigC> should I enter with a "?" or is it an eruption
08:21:15 <Joe> Mike we have just hit the dreaded 08xx period of failure
08:21:34 <Joe> South bubbler steam
08:22:38 <Joe> Craig as mush steam as there was and you thought you saw water
08:22:44 <CraigC> Graham here?
08:23:07 <CraigC> I couldn't tell if there was water
08:23:23 <CraigC> but never seen that much steam come out of it like that
08:23:50 <Kat> Linda, I understand being knocked out by the heat! When do you leave for the park?
08:24:52 <CraigC> AL
08:25:10 <Kat> :)

08:27:26 <LindaG(5)> Stay overnight and then onto yellowstone!
08:27:53 <CraigC> Joe, any way you can make a video of churn?
08:28:04 <Kat> Nice - I always do my shopping in Bozeman - REI and Walmart!
08:28:11 <CraigC> I'll enter the anemones for you

08:28:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> missed Churn :(but glad its active :)
08:29:18 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, can you stick around and look at the video Joe makes to see if it was an eruption
08:29:22 <LindaG(5)> The anemones are happy
08:29:48 <Kat> :)
08:31:45 <CraigC> gymnastics ie
08:32:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> sure, i am around till just before 1000
08:32:04 <CraigC> hey Kevin
08:32:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
08:32:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> would like to see it on the new cam view
08:32:45 <CraigC> is that Micah?
08:35:01 <Kat> The start of the webcam issues! :(
08:35:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Did I break the webcam?
08:36:04 <Kat> :)
08:36:09 <ynpvisitor55> Lost controls as well
08:36:47 <ynpvisitor55> Back
08:37:15 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, CBS Sunday Morning is doing a story on Big Boy
08:37:48 <Kevin L™🌵> When is that Craig?
08:37:49 <ynpvisitorCC2> yep
08:38:03 <Kevin L™🌵> CC broke the cam.
08:38:23 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, right now
08:38:27 <Kat> Craig I saw it - it was very cool! Thought of you and Kevin!!
08:38:29 <ynpvisitorCC2> As soon as I get this back I am putting it on OF
08:39:40 <Kevin L™🌵> It is going to Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, & Minnesota if any of you are around those areas. Coming my way in October.
08:40:04 <Kat> I would love to see it! Awesome!
08:42:21 <Joe> camera fail
08:44:19 <CraigC> aurum just erupted
08:44:32 <CraigC> barely missed it
08:45:02 <Kevin L™🌵> :(
08:51:03 <Joe1> Craig, Churn with a little GH in middle https://youtu.be/0LErZsX1l0k
08:54:19 <CraigC> Joe1, looks like eruption, thanks for making that
08:55:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> its steam from Churn, but I am not seeing the splashy steam pushes. not sure
08:55:12 <Joe> YW
08:55:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> if i had to guess i would say it was hit and maybe small splashes but probably not a full eruption
08:55:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> interesting steam cloud tho
08:56:54 <CraigC> ok, I changed to exact time, and left as questionable, added video url
09:02:09 <Joe> Craig, anytime you need a video made and I am on, let me know the ~time and I'll get it for you, I save the recordings until late evening :)
09:02:34 <Teri> gm all; wow SB on 3 days! amazing
09:03:00 <Joe> Hi Teri
09:03:29 <Teri> hey Joe; tks for all the vid postings!, they're all terrific
09:03:48 <Joe> yw
09:05:19 <Joe> Looks like the camera operators are going to have another bad day
09:05:57 <Kevin L™🌵> When was the last good one?
09:06:30 <CraigC> Tree Cam
09:06:37 <Joe> Yes you are absolutely right Kevin
09:07:14 <Joe> yuo too, Craig
09:07:22 <Joe> you*
09:08:40 <ynpvisitor90> How I long for tree cam!
09:14:02 <Terry> I enjoy this cam as it connects me every day with the place I love so much. I’m not a participant in the chat, but I enjoy reading what everyone shares. The up and down status of the cam has reached ridiculous proportions. I am grateful the cam exists, but it’s just down way, way too much. Is there an entity I can communicate with to express support in addressing this issue in order to ma
09:14:34 <Terry> it enjoyable for everyone?
09:15:49 <Joe> There is a contact form at the bottom of the YNP webcam page
09:15:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Here is the contact info: https://www.nps.gov/yell/contacts.htm
09:16:12 <Terry> Thanks!
09:16:45 <CraigC> Terry, bravo for trying to help out
09:18:09 <Teri> I'll write too
09:18:42 <Terry> I suppose any little effort can't hurt.
09:22:21 <Joe> The camera has dropped out 12 times since 0835,about the same as yesterday
09:27:01 <ynpvisitor19> I also suggest you express your frustrations on YNP facebook page. That seems to get their attention.
09:27:43 <CraigC> I imagine, since millions will read the comments.
09:28:02 <ynpvisitor19> Include @canonUSA and @YellowstoneForever in your comment
09:28:16 <ynpvisitor19> It notifies them when you include them.
09:31:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> Castle is ie
09:31:49 <ynpvisitor60> any way I can turn off notifications?
09:32:52 <ynpvisitor19> Yes, when notification pops up, click the settings button and disable
09:33:14 <ynpvisitor60> thanks
09:33:49 <Joe1> Here is today's Aurum 0836 on GT just before cam went down https://youtu.be/18DOponhiT0

09:35:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> nicely backlit
09:35:33 <CraigC> Joe1, awesome!!!
09:36:05 <CraigC> feel stupid that it was right in front of us and we didn't catch it thru the steam
09:49:34 <ynpvisitor63> The webcam is quite busy
10:13:07 <Betty> LC ie
10:33:44 <Cooper at BH> South bubbler blipping
10:34:15 <Cooper at BH> Very loud
10:34:37 <Betty> thx Cooper
10:35:22 <ynpvisitor90> On the bench, been blipping for 15 min
10:36:48 <Betty> BH action
10:37:48 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice to have live reports Cooper
10:38:41 <Cooper at BH> Bbl
10:38:57 <Betty> have fun
10:39:22 <Betty> this is so annoying
10:39:58 <Betty> ridicolous
10:42:57 <ynpvisitor26> BH
10:43:13 <Teri> hmm, so we miss another BH for cam outtage (?)
10:43:21 <ynpvisitor999®> useless
10:43:25 <Betty> If we had a cam we could see it ... grrrrrrrrrrr
10:43:25 <Teri> sad
10:43:31 <Teri> hey Betty
10:43:39 <Betty> hi Teri
10:43:48 <Teri> hope all is well with you
10:43:54 <Betty> yup
10:43:59 <Teri> vg
10:44:22 <Teri> about to head out; have a great day, all
10:44:28 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Teri
10:44:35 <Betty> same to you, bye
10:44:41 <Teri> tks 3x9!
10:45:11 <Teri> aufwiedersehen (whenever we're back in the Park!, lol)
10:45:28 <Betty> :thumbsup: :-)
10:46:03 <Betty> I´ll be there around Labour Day
10:47:27 <Teri> I haven't made plans yet, maybe later in Sept; used to be after Labor Day the park was less crowded, not so much anymore w/the tour buses
10:48:57 <Betty> it used to be less later, but I had no difference last year. I only had to bring warmer cloth :-p
10:52:16 <ynpvisitor999®> Grand
10:53:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Well at least we get a nice still of Grand. Wonder if Cooper made it there.

11:44:24 <Joe> The camera has failed at least 40 times since 0805
11:44:28 <Betty> LC ie
11:45:17 <LindaG(5)>
11:51:30 <Joe> This has to be bad for YNP webcam page, this has been 'garbage' for a little over two months, when will Yellowstone Foundation just let it fade away ?
11:52:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Yellow Funnel Spring is muddy, Emerald's breakout feature appears hotter and runoff channel is white, from green earlier this year
11:52:54 <ynpvisitor26> Very few people are watching the recordings now days. Approximately 10% of the viewership compared to before the camera move.
11:55:01 <Joe> YF had a streaming camera at the Arch entrance, the camera went down during new constrodtion, they never brought it back!
11:55:34 <Joe> construction *
11:57:44 <ynpvisitor999®> USA just won with 3-0 from Chile in the women's soccer world cup. With that, they'll be going to the round of 16
12:30:00 <Kat> Jarno - soccer still being played on the Eaat coast!

12:38:52 <ynpvisitor61> OF
13:10:29 <Betty> LC ie
13:15:05 <ynpvisitor75> Well if PBS was in charge of the cam we would have to put up with worthless views as they hold us hostage for donations. So not all is terrible.
13:15:35 <ynpvisitor84> such an odd statement
13:16:13 <ynpvisitor75> It is also a good example why we do not want the government to be in charge of our lives, like health care and housing.
13:17:02 <ynpvisitor75> Truth can be odd.
13:17:57 <ynpvisitor75> Our PBS hostage break ended last night.
13:18:27 <ynpvisitor999®> AL ie
13:18:53 <ynpvisitor84> I very much want the government to be in charge of my health care.
13:19:04 <ynpvisitor84> better than the despots in charge of it now
13:19:56 <Michael> Aurum!
13:19:56 <ynpvisitor75> You are a despot?
13:20:06 <ynpvisitor999®> nice catch Michael
13:20:06 <Joe> AURUM
13:20:46 <ynpvisitor75> Lasting longer then a blink
13:21:27 <ynpvisitor999®> a fun one with a nice height to it
13:21:38 <ynpvisitor75> First SB, now Aurum. The geysers are in chaos.
13:23:05 <ynpvisitor84> perhaps it is your mind that is in chaos. All is well with the geysers
13:23:32 <ynpvisitor75> 3 day sb is well?
13:23:38 <ynpvisitor999®> though I didn't quite expect SB this soon, but a welcome surprise :)
13:25:33 <ynpvisitor999®> big if here, but if SB continues with those short intervals, we could have a new record of SB's in a month: 7 (with ~5d intervals) or even more (sub-5d)
13:26:57 <Michael> As long as there's some hint of whether a long or a short interval is coming, the short intervals are welcome.
13:28:15 <ynpvisitor75> I don't follow SB, was there a hint? Seems like it was a surprise, was it?
13:29:19 <Michael> In retrospect, it sounds like Cistern Spring refilled very quickly. I think people take some cues from it.
13:29:20 <ynpvisitor999®> it was a surprise, though Cistern did fill rather quickly after SB's eruption
13:30:32 <ynpvisitor75> Hasn't Cistern been filling rather fast this spring/summer?
13:31:09 <Michael> This one might have been exceptional. But few people were prepared to bet on Steamboat beating its record short interval by that much...
13:31:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> did i miss anything other then up down up down
13:31:27 <ynpvisitor75> Aurum
13:31:39 <ynpvisitor75> A nice tall ong one
13:31:45 <ynpvisitor75> long
13:32:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> i see Dave put Churn in
13:33:32 <ynpvisitor75> Down seems to be winnng
13:33:51 <Michael> I'm going out for a walk while it isn't actively raining here. Maybe that will get the cam to work better.
13:34:10 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm not sure on Cistern refilling rather fast this spring/summer, 75. It's perhaps just as fast (or a tad slower or quicker) compared to the previous period of 5-6d intervals
13:34:43 <ynpvisitor75> water splashing
13:36:30 <Betty> bulger ie
13:37:18 <ynpvisitor75> One thing if it goes to 3/4 day intervals. People will not have to wait days to see or miss it. Batting average may be the same, but the wait per eruption will be shorter.
13:37:23 <ynpvisitor999®> NG 1334 strong overflow and pulsing
13:39:04 <ynpvisitor999®> I doubt SB will keep these intervals for long. It's more than likely it will slow down until when it decides it wants to speed up again
13:40:48 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy in window
13:41:04 <ynpvisitor999®> could be that it went already
13:42:46 <ynpvisitor84> SB could be headed to the end of erupting too
13:44:48 <ynpvisitor84> west gate needs more than 2 gates open
13:45:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't think it will be going with that much of a speed. It survived a disturbance very well (possibly two if one happened between March and April of this year, based on 14d interval followed by 17d)
13:48:29 <ynpvisitor999®> Morning had an eruption this morning
13:48:43 <ynpvisitor999®> dual with Fountain
13:49:02 <ynpvisitor75> I have more faith in geysers being geysers then this cam working like all the other streaming cams in the world do.
13:49:18 <ynpvisitor75> cool on fountain
13:50:16 <ynpvisitor75> SB, Aurum, Morning/Fountain. Chaos
13:50:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice. 38m Ftn and then next up its a dual
13:51:38 <ynpvisitor999®> I wouldn't call this activity chaos. It's more like natural behaviour due to natural, uncontrollable energy shifts between geysers
13:52:06 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy 1350 ns
13:52:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Good NG note
13:56:46 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside post-eruptive
13:59:12 <ynpvisitor75> Well if I can not call it chaos, how about Quantum?
13:59:43 <ynpvisitor999®> how about 'natural behaviour'?
14:00:11 <ynpvisitor75> So plane
14:01:10 <ynpvisitor75> Normal would imply some kind of pattern.
14:01:34 <ynpvisitor84> you need help 75
14:01:43 <ynpvisitor75> So how about exceptional?
14:01:57 <ynpvisitor999®> 'chaos' would be used by conspiracy theoridiots in my opinion
14:02:00 <ynpvisitor75> You offering to send me a check/
14:02:42 <ynpvisitor75> Don't tell Physicists.
14:03:21 <ynpvisitor999®> 'exceptional behaviour' is definitely better than 'chaos', though for me it's still on the 'you're making it bigger than it is' side
14:16:51 <CraigC> geysers erupt based upon conditions building up within certain boundaries..... the word "chaos" does not apply
14:18:27 <CraigC> chaos would be water shooting out randomly all over the surface of the planet
14:19:07 <Sam> Apparently I missed/am missing an interesting conversation?
14:19:11 <CraigC> oh, guess 75 left LOL
14:19:48 <Sam> Upon reading, geysers are in chaos, got it.
14:19:48 <CraigC> OF just erupted with no warning, we never expected it.... LOL
14:20:11 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
14:20:17 <Sam> How annoying haha
14:20:50 <Joe> Craig, I see DaveM agreed with your churn
14:21:35 <Sam> Riverside also erupted a while back, according to Polly
14:23:25 <ynpvisitor26> Water was clearly vissible at Churn
14:25:18 <CraigC> Joe, how does that work? Did he look at the video and then make an entry to confirm it?
14:25:45 <ynpvisitor26> Yes I did
14:26:24 <CraigC> so should I change mine from questionable?
14:26:27 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like a post-eruptive Lion
14:27:05 <ynpvisitor26> yes it does
14:27:29 <ynpvisitor26> Craig, yes you can
14:27:35 <CraigC> thanks
14:28:57 <ynpvisitor999®> static minus 5 frames (0226pm) shows what seems to be a faint Lion's plume
14:33:24 <ynpvisitor74> Looks like the rain is finding the UGB soon
14:56:59 <ynpvisitor999®> walking droplets :)
15:15:46 <Betty> LC ie
15:17:58 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off. Enjoy Lion
15:18:15 <Betty> night Jarno
15:19:46 <ynpvisitor80> Tomorrow stay tuned for how Dave’s car at 70 mph fared vs a deer
15:20:19 <Betty> ?
15:21:57 <ynpvisitor61> Everyone is fine but car will be out of commission for a month or so
15:22:12 <Betty> ugh
15:22:28 <Betty> beats Kevin´s rock
15:22:35 <ynpvisitor61> Let’s just say there is regurgitated grass everywhere on my car
15:23:00 <Betty> hi Dave :-p
15:23:19 <ynpvisitor61> I followed the rules and didn’t swerve
15:23:20 <CraigC> yikes, Dave
15:23:24 <ynpvisitor61> Hi
15:23:26 <Betty> you misused it as a mower?
15:23:56 <Betty> any mailboxes involved too?
15:24:33 <ynpvisitor61> I can’t get the deer guts going everywhere out of my mind
15:25:00 <Michael> Hi Dave, we've been there, including the grass and guts.
15:25:37 <ynpvisitor61> I’m just glad everyone is safe. I didn’t know how I would react. Glad I didn’t swerve
15:25:43 <CraigC> lmao @ mailboxes
15:26:04 <Betty> thank god you are ok
15:26:19 <ynpvisitor61> This deer acted like a mailbox in the middle of the road
15:26:39 <CraigC> I would have helped you stand the deer back up before anyone got home
15:27:36 <ynpvisitor61> Haha. Back to Father’s Day activities. Talk to you tomorrow
15:27:40 <Michael> Glad to hear you're all OK, if shaken.
15:27:53 <CraigC> are you home now?
15:28:13 <Betty> I had that on highway at 95mph speed with a bussard 2 years ago. did not swerve too
15:29:21 <Betty> I´m glad they have safety windshields nowadays :-p
15:36:02 <Michael> Lion
15:36:02 <Betty> Lion
15:39:56 <Michael> Cam stayed up for almost the whole thing!
15:58:18 <Betty> OF ie
15:59:32 <Sam> OF was ie at 15:56 - i just didn't call it
15:59:48 <Sam> Ah, Dave got it. Thank you.
16:16:03 <ynpvisitor26> I give up. 7 minutes work to move the camera from OF to Daisy just to get an out of focus Daisy.
16:21:28 <Betty> I´m out for today, night all
16:55:36 <Kevin L™🌵> So deer are the popular car targets for gazers this year?
16:56:06 <ynpvisitor26> grand
17:03:52 <ynpvisitor63> Late, but I am here for the first time n a month
17:04:20 <Kevin L™🌵> You haven't missed much
17:06:55 <ynpvisitor26> A word of warning. Don't expect to move the camera frequently. We keep losing connection.
17:07:09 <ynpvisitor63> Thanks
17:07:57 <ynpvisitor63> I think I lost OF :(
17:08:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Cam has an attitude problem
17:10:48 <ynpvisitor63> If I remember I am to show absolutely all of OF but NO cars?
17:11:25 <Kevin L™🌵> If you are lucky.
17:11:40 <ynpvisitor63> :) I will try
17:14:04 <ynpvisitor63> Lost control image
17:14:35 <Kevin L™🌵> It's fallen and it can't get up!
17:14:46 <ynpvisitor63> :)
17:31:40 <ynpvisitor63> OF 1731 wc
17:40:20 <ynpvisitor57> Could be time for Aurum if we're lucky.
17:42:52 <ynpvisitor63> I broke it checking Aurum
17:44:24 <ynpvisitor57> Feels like it's my fault too.
17:44:48 <ynpvisitor63> I'll share :)
17:45:30 <ynpvisitor57> Crud. Did the lower deck just get declared a safety hazard?
17:46:08 <ynpvisitor62> you read something?
17:46:17 <CraigC> wowow
17:46:21 <ynpvisitor57> Geysertimes notes.
17:46:28 <ynpvisitor62> thanks
17:46:55 <ynpvisitor63> Strange?
17:47:03 <ynpvisitor62> I didn't think posting those photos was a good idea
17:59:55 <ynpvisitor92> Steerage will be a busy place now.
18:00:32 <ynpvisitor92> posts go too viral these days, too much talk about how someone could have been killed
18:03:26 <Sam> Any speculation why LE was closed?
18:03:34 <Sam> Safety concerns?
18:04:23 <ynpvisitor62> big rock hit the Steamboat Geyser sign and broke it
18:04:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't blame me!!
18:04:54 <Sam> I read that. Was wondering if something was gonna happen
18:04:59 <Sam> Kevin L™🌵, :)
18:04:59 <ynpvisitor62> 50 other eruptions with no problems
18:08:36 <Sam> This cam is becoming a rollercoaster
18:09:19 <ynpvisitor63> Not much fun driving
18:09:34 <ynpvisitor57> Riverside
18:17:16 <ynpvisitor55> Bulger
18:23:20 <Lori S> How do you close mid deck but not the boardwalk to Cistern? Or do they mean the back way to Cistern will be open?
18:24:03 <ynpvisitor62> I think it will be gridlock with people not actually walking...
18:24:50 <Lori S> Good point
18:25:57 <ynpvisitor62> No Loitering, lol . They will need a traffic cop
18:26:18 <Lori S> That turn to Cistern is already tight with the deck open
18:29:12 <ynpvisitor63> Daisy 1828 wc
18:32:43 <Lori S> Yellow Funnel muddy. Bit of a drop on a couple Norris loggers. Rain, must be the rain.
19:03:06 <ynpvisitor63> Aurum on static
19:04:34 <ynpvisitor63> Fluff 1904 wc
19:05:35 <Sam> Very fluffy
19:13:22 <ynpvisitor63> Mickey D's back in 20
20:38:22 <Cooper> I am sorry to say, but checked out Norris before the storm and it does look like we might be getting a disturbance.
20:40:26 <ynpvisitor78> In what way Cooper?
20:40:30 <ynpvisitor10> Fluff 2039
20:41:21 <Cooper> Very murky water in all pools, very high water
20:41:36 <ynpvisitor78> All of cb’s notes made it sound the opposite
20:42:06 <Cooper> Hmmmm
20:42:12 <ynpvisitor78> Did you get to see the start yesterday Cooper?
20:42:37 <Cooper> Somewhat, somewhat sudden, was not expecting i5
20:42:45 <Cooper> It**
20:42:57 <ynpvisitor78> Did you just happen to be there?
20:43:43 <ynpvisitor26> Intersting. The notes I read today sounded like we might be seeing a disturbance.
20:44:06 <ynpvisitor78> I guess I read things wrong
20:44:19 <Cooper> Yes, missed BH:(, so decided to head to Norris, and got lucky :D
20:44:49 <ynpvisitor78> Where were you for the start?
20:45:04 <ynpvisitor62> I read them and don't see disturbance in those notes
20:46:00 <Cooper> ynpvisitor78, I was not at SB, headed back to car to get rain jacket, and heard it about 1/2 way to lot, so ran back
20:46:33 <ynpvisitor78> Did you stay for the restarts?
20:46:47 <Cooper> YES
20:47:02 <ynpvisitor78> Was it your first SB?
20:47:36 <Cooper> From NS yes, caught the very tail end of one last summer
20:47:52 <ynpvisitor78> Cool Cooper
20:48:13 <ynpvisitor78> How much longer are you in the park?
20:48:50 <Cooper> Tomorrow is my last day, for now
20:49:15 <Cooper> Likely to head back later in summer
20:50:49 <ynpvisitor10> Daisy 2049 wc
20:54:47 <Cooper> Cistern was improving quickly, when I left at 1900, it was full 1/4, and SB had some light water
20:57:36 <ynpvisitor62> I read them and don't see disturbance in those notes
21:00:38 <Cooper> I am still on the fence about the disturbance, I mean the springs are muddy and cooler than usual, a d springs like emerald are 4 feet steady, but most notes don't seem like a disturbance
21:02:20 <Cooper> Grrrrrr
21:03:35 <Cooper> Don't know if this always happens but yellow funnel was 6 feet steady, and vixen always had runoff
21:03:54 <ynpvisitor62> what is 4 feet steady?
21:04:38 <Cooper> Emerald spring maybe, some spring on the hillside before steamboat
21:06:39 <Cooper> Nope nevermind
21:07:20 <ynpvisitor62> if you see anything unusual you should put a note in GT
21:07:47 <Cooper> I am on the fence
21:08:30 <Cooper> Nothing oddly abnormal, but not normal
21:08:59 <Cooper> I will have to go back tomorrow
21:11:41 <Cooper> I need to get something to eat, any recommendations for west Yellowstone
21:11:53 <Cooper> bye everone
21:18:38 <ynpvisitor10> Cam going on night mode so it is available.
21:48:01 <CraigC> cam has been down for 2 hours straight?
22:07:52 <ynpvisitor5> Middle platform is closed. Way to overreact LE
22:08:29 <ynpvisitor5> A bison goring. Better close the whole park
