03:47:29 <Betty> glad you got it Joe
03:47:51 <Joe> Still trying to determine if there was an indy or just Bee steam
03:48:35 <Betty> ohhh, Steamboat! just saw that
03:49:02 <Betty> another 3 day interval
03:51:11 <Betty> steamplume beehind the fog

05:13:14 <Rice> Wow Steamboat again last night, Comments were that Cistern was full and boiling so that makes sense.
05:16:23 <Joe> LION
05:36:15 <Joe> Castle
05:36:34 <Joe> Riverside
05:37:50 <Joe> Grand
05:47:24 <Joe> Possible 2nd on Grand
05:51:14 <Joe> Castle major
05:54:42 <Dave from B™> Good morning
05:54:53 <Joe> Hi Dave SB again!
05:55:01 <Dave from B™> SB with another shorty
05:55:17 <Dave from B™> Yep. I'm not surprised after how fast Cistern filled
05:56:51 <Joe> I wonder if there were any Sears Gazers there?
05:58:31 <CraigC> OMG
05:58:38 <CraigC> mornin everyone
05:58:44 <Joe> Hi Craig
05:58:47 <CraigC> hey Joe
05:59:04 <Dave from B™> Morning CraigC
05:59:24 <Dave from B™> Joe, I don't know who the Sears are
05:59:26 <CraigC> people say not to try to make anything of trace, but hmmmm
05:59:33 <CraigC> hey Dave
05:59:43 <Joe> Die Hards
06:00:40 <Dave from B™> haha. We shall find out shortly
06:01:02 <Joe> You have to be old enough to remember Sears Diehard Batterys
06:01:33 <Dave from B™> I do remember. Sorry, have to do a computer restart to finish a QB upgrade. Brb
06:03:45 <ynpvisitor999®> nice fog
06:03:53 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all
06:04:11 <Joe> Hi Jarno
06:05:24 <Joe> Daisy and Lion soon
06:06:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> wow thats a pretty distinct signature on the seismo
06:07:06 <Joe> Hi Graham
06:07:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> so 55 in series 45 in 12 months 23 this year
06:07:27 <Rice> The cistern report from yesterday made is sound good, and they were not wrong.
06:07:29 <CraigC> hey Graham
06:07:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah, carols SB note yesterday indicated they were not eager to leave
06:08:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> so 3d wasnt a fluke
06:08:46 <Rice> Now we need Giant to get going again.
06:08:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> so Saturday is primetime
06:08:55 <GO STEAMBOAT> hopefully daylight
06:09:40 <CraigC> daisy?
06:09:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like the cam was up al night
06:09:53 <CraigC> or is that castle steam
06:10:11 <CraigC> forget that
06:10:38 <Joe> yes good cam so far:)
06:12:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> we wil know more in a few hours
06:12:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice spike on Tantalus Creek gauge too
06:13:36 <Joe> Daisy
06:17:31 <Joe> LION
06:20:08 <ynpvisitor85> GS, can you translate CSNVSVH= for me? I'm guessing Concerted strong North Vent but then what?
06:20:18 <Joe> LC
06:20:24 <ynpvisitor85> H+, that is
06:20:38 <ynpvisitor85> South Vent Heavy?
06:22:28 <ynpvisitor22> Take a look at the YNR trace on seismo - much larger...
06:23:34 <CraigC> intersting
06:24:00 <CraigC>
06:26:08 <ynpvisitor85> Joe, did you enjoy your BH this morning?
06:26:39 <Joe> Yes I did :)
06:28:44 <Joe> Barely caught it saw steam extreme right thought indy but when I moved cam Bee was steaming then BOOM
06:30:10 <ynpvisitor85> So, no indy again?
06:31:10 <Joe> I did not see it will look later to see if it started after
06:31:22 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks for bringing YNR to attention, Craig. Massive trace on there
06:32:32 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, visitor22 pointed it out, I just linked it
06:32:44 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, lol. Thanks #22 :D
06:32:58 <CraigC> and hey Jarno
06:33:07 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Craig
06:37:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Dome ie
06:38:54 <Joe> Just steaming
06:39:11 <Joe> saw more steam before
06:40:32 <Joe> Dome on static 27 min ago
06:40:39 <CraigC> fun Dome series last evening, the lighting was awesome
06:41:07 <CraigC> marmot cave
06:41:24 <Joe> Now Dome
06:52:55 <Joe> LA ie
06:55:28 <Kat> Moring all!
06:55:37 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Kat
06:55:42 <Kat> Morning* LOL
06:56:10 <Joe> Hi KAT
06:56:10 <KittyM> Good morning :)
06:56:34 <Kat> I'm covering Linda - so I may be a very bad speller today :)
06:56:57 <Joe> Ah! controls released
06:57:14 <ynpvisitor999®> This is from two weeks ago from Janet Jones:
06:57:16 <Kat> Thanks Joe!
06:57:32 <ynpvisitor999®> if I've connected the right name to this account, that is
06:57:39 <CraigC> hey Kat
06:58:03 <CraigC> yeah, that is janet
06:58:30 <CraigC> I follow her, too..... she speaks well to us newbies
06:58:32 <Joe> Kat, you are going th have to really try to get Lindaspeak :)
06:58:49 <ynpvisitor999®> there's at least some hope for Morning Glory with those blue colors
06:59:00 <CraigC> marmot cave
06:59:22 <Joe> BA
06:59:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> I think CSNVSVH means Concerted Sustained North vertical South Vertical Heavy runoff
06:59:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> trying to avoid woo and woohoo whuch dont mean anyhting to anyone
06:59:52 <KittyM> That was sa beautiful picture!
07:00:51 <CraigC> I think mouth might be erupting
07:01:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> each of these things can happen seperately, concerted, sustained, vertical, heavy runoff
07:01:09 <CraigC> can't see it, but the steam there
07:01:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> but when they happen together its a good thing
07:01:50 <ynpvisitor999®> hm, thought for a second there were some people off-boardwalk. Darn light playing with me again
07:02:13 <CraigC> maybe 2 of the features above Marmot Cave
07:03:25 <ynpvisitor85> Thanks Graham. Yep. Those are the terms that were used in the 80s by the Strassers
07:03:36 <Kat> Dome
07:06:02 <CraigC> hey Dave
07:06:10 <Dave from B™> Didn't realize I was still a number since my computer restart
07:06:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> I think they had Jetting and Granding back then ... not being used now
07:06:34 <Dave from B™> I like Granding term. It does fit
07:06:45 <CraigC> AL
07:06:57 <ynpvisitor27> Granding is still used
07:07:04 <Dave from B™> I was hoping for a Monday or Tuesday SB when our clan is staying at Roosevelt and doing Upper Loop stuff
07:07:50 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I'm trying to convince myself to haul my rig up next week
07:08:12 <CraigC> anyone have any extra Zanax?
07:09:17 <Dave from B™> C'mon CraigC.....why keep it parked in your driveway? Did you buy it just to show it off to the neighbors or did you just need an extra bedroom?:D:D
07:09:35 <Joe> I do not see any evidence of Indy before or during Beehive last night on GOSA Replay
07:09:53 <Dave from B™> Thanks Joe!
07:09:57 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I know, huh
07:10:27 <Dave from B™> BTW, Dome initial yesterday was great
07:10:44 <CraigC> that was the coolest Dome yet on here
07:12:09 <ynpvisitor999®> hm... To me it seems like the 0335 Beehive was preceded by much steam from the bubblers (though heavy splashing could have caused that). No Indicator for sure - not even during the eruption!
07:13:07 <CraigC> have there been cycles before of less Indys?
07:14:45 <ynpvisitor999®> Though if the Bubblers preceded Beehive, they behaved exactly like Indicator does during an eruption - they initially continue and then seemed to have shut off roughly half-way the eruption, just like Indy would
07:16:31 <CraigC> marmot cave
07:21:03 <Kat> Dome
07:22:26 <CraigC> roar
07:22:38 <CraigC> lion
07:22:44 <Kat> :lion:
07:23:40 <Kat> :)
07:32:53 <Kat> LC
07:34:22 <Dave from B™> SB eruptions: 2018 32 2019 23 and counting. Record could be broken in July or August at this pace
07:38:08 <ynpvisitor999®> we could be looking at perhaps 40 to 50 eruption (more wouldn't surprise me at all) by the end of the year
07:39:13 <ynpvisitor999®> median is currently at 7d2h50m for this year
07:39:57 <Dave from B™> Or, more frequent eruptions could lead to its is powerful
07:40:10 <ynpvisitor35> Dave from B™, what record?
07:40:16 <CraigC> shhhhh
07:40:17 <ynpvisitor999®> hopefully it won't walk the path of Excelsior
07:40:49 <CraigC> # of eruptions in a year
07:41:49 <Dave from B™> 35, # of eruptions in a year
07:42:13 <ynpvisitor35> if there were 32 in 2018 doesn't that already beat the record?
07:42:41 <Dave from B™> We will break it in 2019
07:43:12 <ynpvisitor999®> 2018 broke the record of most eruptions in a year. 2019 will likely break the record of 2018 by, what seems to be, a landslide
07:43:20 <ynpvisitor35> ok, you mean last year's record
07:43:52 <Dave from B™> Yes. Even at 1 a week for the rest of the year, we could get to 50
07:43:54 <Joe> Dome
07:44:52 <Dave from B™> Every 5 days gets us to 60 this year
07:45:07 <Dave from B™> Things can change tomorrow
07:45:10 <CraigC> we need an Aurum soon so I can go clean my aquarium ;)
07:45:19 <Kat> :)
07:45:50 <CraigC> this view gets addicting
07:46:12 <ynpvisitor35> it's pretty amazing
07:46:12 <CraigC> I got more done when the cam was broken all the time
07:46:40 <Dave from B™> Tell me about it
07:47:01 <CraigC> Dave from B™, everything I did?
07:47:07 <CraigC> :)
07:47:28 <Joe> Other than starting with A and ending with UM, how did you come up with the need to clean your Aquarium after aurum
07:48:12 <CraigC> Joe, LMAO.... Aurum was on my mind, and so I can't stop looking for it
07:48:27 <Kat> Joe :lol:
07:48:34 <CraigC> but maybe it was subcoscious like how you associated it
07:49:05 <Kat> OT
07:49:12 <CraigC> yep
07:49:12 <ynpvisitor999®> Cistern down 12-18". SB in mix of water/steam, roaring but apparantly not as loud as previous eruptions. SB jetting to 60-80' @ 0635. No rocks and pebbles on both decks. Runoffs channels flowing with milky-white water
07:49:58 <ynpvisitor999®> taken from Cistern & SB notes
07:50:25 <ynpvisitor999®> So OT has minor and major eruptions now? Interesting concept :)
07:51:08 <CraigC> does it, or are you teasing her?
07:51:50 <Kat> My mistake... sorry :)
07:52:24 <CraigC> LOL
07:52:26 <Kat> Fixed..
07:53:04 <Joe> adamdanski was there
07:53:46 <Joe> not Lindaspeak but for real
07:53:55 <CraigC> :)
07:56:01 <CraigC> ok, cleaning time
07:56:20 <Dave from B™> Time for Aurum:)
07:56:22 <Kat> Have fun!
07:56:47 <Joe> But, but there has not been an Aurum!
07:56:56 <Dave from B™> Remember, you can keep your fish out of water for up to an hour
07:59:46 <Kat> OF
08:02:53 <ynpvisitor57> You can forget about Aurum now.
08:03:32 <CraigC> hey Kevin
08:03:53 <Dave from B™> What are you talking about? You saw 2 yesterday!
08:03:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
08:03:57 <ynpvisitor999®> morning BWaggs & Kevin
08:04:50 <Joe> Ah! my mind was asking why...then the name Kevin appeared...problem solved :)
08:06:07 <Kevin L™🌵> How you doing this morning Joe?
08:06:24 <Kat> LC
08:06:36 <Joe> Ok, how about you?
08:08:01 <BWaggs> Morning!
08:08:27 <CraigC> AL
08:08:36 <Joe> Other than going to the nearest train track to 'fix ' this leg, I'm good
08:08:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Worn out for sure but OK.
08:11:05 <Kat> Dome
08:13:01 <Kat> Cam very blurred...
08:14:04 <Kevin L™🌵> I think a good dome cleaning would do wonders.
08:16:14 <CraigC> ok, aquarium done, where is Aurum
08:16:14 <Kat> You're probably right..
08:16:42 <Joe> Kevin is here so no Aurum
08:16:50 <CraigC>
08:17:16 <Dave from B™> CraigC, did you do a godo job or do you need to go back and do it again?:)
08:17:18 <CraigC> that had to have been Pump
08:17:45 <CraigC> Dave from B™, I always do it the same way, and fish are very happy
08:17:59 <Joe> Or I could have been a smarta** and said on Geyser Hill
08:18:22 <CraigC> Joe, I wouldn't have held back
08:19:02 <CraigC> sprinkler
08:19:15 <Kat> :)
08:20:20 <Kat> Windy
08:20:29 <Kent> Mac problems continue.
08:20:41 <Kent> Stream works in Safari
08:20:55 <Kent> No work Chrome & Firefox
08:20:56 <Joe> ARTY
08:21:06 <Kent> Flash updated
08:21:07 <Kat> Arty
08:21:18 <Kent> Suggestions?
08:22:26 <ynpvisitor999®> you have to enable Flash in Firefox (likely in Chrome too, but I don't know where :P). In Firefox you have to click on the brick in the URL bar to active Flash (the menu that pops up should help you further)
08:22:35 <Joe> Have you clicked on the lock next to https and gone to site settings
08:23:17 <Kent> I'm looking
08:23:22 <CraigC> where is Spanker feature
08:23:36 <CraigC> OMG, did I really type that
08:24:22 <CraigC> non-geyser note references "Spanker"
08:24:33 <ynpvisitor75> Worked
08:24:42 <Joe> good
08:24:47 <ynpvisitor75> Thanks
08:25:24 <ynpvisitor999®> From this view, Spanker is located just to the right or even behind Castle
08:25:40 <CraigC> ynpvisitor999®, thanks
08:25:40 <ynpvisitor999®> behind the trees behind Castle even
08:27:47 <ynpvisitor999®> comment on Grand's second burst made me chuckle a bit. Just imagine a steam plume taking the shape of the words '2nd burst' :P
08:31:29 <Kat> :daisy:
08:32:07 <Joe> Hi Kent
08:32:15 <ynpvisitor...> Hey Joe
08:35:47 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ie
08:37:23 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, kind-of looks like it's ns
08:39:00 <Kat> I agree - when I first saw it it just building up
08:39:09 <ynpvisitor999®> LC
08:40:27 <ynpvisitor45> Jarno, where do you get YNR trace from?
08:40:43 <ynpvisitor999®>
08:41:09 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Mike
08:41:20 <ynpvisitor45> Is it closer to SB than YNM?
08:41:35 <ynpvisitor45> Trace looks larger
08:41:59 <ynpvisitor999®> further - just north of NPR if I recall correctly
08:42:25 <ynpvisitor45> Thanks
08:44:56 <CraigC> going biking bbl
08:45:29 <Kat> Bye Craig
08:45:38 <Dave from B™> Have fun Craig!
08:45:43 <ynpvisitor999®> cya Craig
08:46:15 <Mike J> I need more coffee. I thought Craig wrote "going bikining"
08:46:41 <Kat> :lol:
08:47:01 <Dave from B™> haha
08:47:36 <Mike J> I know people have their own rituals for trying to make geysers go off, but this seemed a bit...much
08:48:25 <ynpvisitor999®> actually, YNR isn't north of NPR. It's actually east-south-eastof Steamboat, approximately 1.20 miles from Steamboat
08:49:03 <ynpvisitor999®> it's YNM which is just about north of NPR.
08:50:16 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum
08:50:17 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:50:17 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:50:18 <ynpvisitor999®> .
08:50:33 <ynpvisitor999®> YNM is about 2300 feet from Steamboat
08:50:50 <ynpvisitor999®> north-east of Porcelain
08:51:18 <Dave from B™> woohoo
08:51:35 <ynpvisitor35> is ynr at the ranger station or ranger museum?
08:51:45 <Dave from B™> It is by the Norris CG and Ranger Station I beleive
08:51:49 <fishynp> YNM is in the NGB Museum.
08:51:56 <Dave from B™> Ranger museum, I mean
08:52:18 <Joe> Dome
08:52:29 <Lori S> Morning all. Go big sput!
08:52:30 <fishynp> not the ranger museum. The museum in NGB.
08:52:32 <ynpvisitor999®> you're actually far better off asking fishynp, #45
08:54:14 <fishynp> YNR is ~1.5 miles SE of NGB.
08:54:58 <ynpvisitor999®> what cause these lines to be tilted awkwardly?
08:55:47 <ynpvisitor35> oh, Southeast, thanks fishynp
08:56:22 <Dave from B™> Thanks for the clarification. I need to look at the seismo map again
08:57:55 <Lori S> Whoa. I just now looked at the YNR. Wider band than YNM.
08:58:01 <Kat> AB?
08:58:27 <fishynp> 999, you are not looking at the seismometer there. That plot is the accelerometer and those tilting lines are just the instrument drifting. If you see the ENZ on the top, that's the accelerometer. The Seismometer will say SHZ or EHZ. You can see all the webicorders for the Yellowstone Seismometers here:
08:59:45 <ynpvisitor999®> interesting, thanks
08:59:45 <fishynp> Don't try to interpret the amplitudes of the signals on the seismic traces. These plots made for the web are all scaled differently and their amplitudes are scaled differently depending on the amount of background noise.
09:00:00 <fishynp> It looks like the YNR signal is bigger but if most definitely is not.
09:00:26 <Lori S> Oh, OK. I thought the YNR didn't usually pick up SB?
09:01:03 <fishynp> YNR picks up SB all the time it just depends on how much background noise is there if you can see it or not on those plots.
09:01:16 <ynpvisitor999®> still makes me wonder about YNE SHZ:
09:01:55 <ynpvisitor999®> thanks for the insights
09:02:17 <fishynp> it's the same issue, the instrument is drifting. We'll send a centering signal to it every once in a while.
09:03:08 <fishynp> It's probably due to thermal influences.
09:03:54 <Lori S> I have been questioning my decision to major in art since last spring. :)
09:05:04 <Lori S> That was poor sentence structure. I haven't majored in art since last spring, I've been questioning since last spring. LOL
09:05:29 <Joe> The radio people must have fpond the problem with the radio. the cam has not bobbled yet
09:05:40 <Joe> found*
09:06:04 <ynpvisitor999®> sshh...
09:08:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am sure it was because Eric brought it to NPS attention
09:09:09 <Dave from B™> Eric is the All Powerful Wizard
09:10:32 <Kat> Joe, ssshhhh :)
09:11:39 <Lori S> Maybe Eric could get them to install a "Warning! Danger! Falling rocks when erupting!" sign instead of closing the platform?
09:13:29 <Joe> Eric makes all things... EZ...:)
09:14:13 <Lori S> Joe, :thumbsup:
09:15:56 <Lori S> Making a screen capture of the Tantalus water gages. Three SB s on one graph in 8 days.
09:18:17 <ynpvisitor95> gm all; wow SB on a 3 day cycle; wish I was there
09:18:39 <ynpvisitor95> how about hard hats for lower deck
09:18:48 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't think we'd ever thought SB would do 3 eruptions in a week, even when it had those 4-5 days intervals
09:20:07 <Lori S> Apparently, it does that now. :)
09:20:26 <ynpvisitor999®> it's a monster
09:20:57 <Dave from B™> It makes me wonder what's going to happen next
09:21:03 <Lori S> Knowing I may actually have a chance to see it this weekend makes me giddy.
09:21:18 <Lori S> Dave from B™, me too
09:22:18 <Kat> Dome
09:22:20 <Teri> hmm, maybe SB will become the "highest predictable geyser" before Yellowstone Live (ugh) starts again, lol
09:22:39 <Lori S> I am itching to get to the basin and check everything else moe than I am to catch a SB again.
09:23:04 <Kat> BA
09:23:12 <Kat> AB
09:23:28 <Joe> In the future as you are walking your grand kids past that "dry hole" called Steamboat you will be able to tell them stories about the glorious Steamboat years :)
09:23:33 <Lori S> Dome?
09:23:44 <ynpvisitor999®> yes
09:23:56 <Kat> Just posted Lori :)
09:24:16 <Lori S> Haha missed that. :)
09:24:27 <Dave from B™> It is going to be weird when this eruption phase does finally end
09:24:43 <Lori S> Dave from B™, SHHHHH
09:24:52 <Lori S> :p
09:24:56 <Kat> :) Couldn't tell you how many I've missed!
09:25:01 <Kevin L™🌵> Just head down there Dave, that will kill it.
09:25:14 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, oh my
09:25:24 <Dave from B™> Hey, I'm the Geyser Whisperer this year:D
09:25:42 <ynpvisitor999®> it might even go as far as that SB explodes, creating 'Steamboat Geyser Crater' or something like that. Though the most likely event is that Steamboat eventually regresses to its pre-active phase.
09:26:03 <Dave from B™> Only 1 person has seen a Trifecta and a SB this year
09:26:29 <Lori S> Dave from B™, :thumbsup: You go dude.
09:26:50 <Joe> back pat :)
09:27:09 <Teri> still want to catch a water phase (hopefully); 1st sat on it for 30min in the drizzle Sept '77 w/my wife-to-be waiting in the car, lol; did get steam phase and post-eruptive jetting last Sept
09:27:32 <Lori S> Dave, care to go sit at Giantess? ;)
09:27:32 <Dave from B™> 1977 wow
09:28:09 <Dave from B™> Don't go there, Lori S. I have no Giantess but 6 other family members do
09:28:39 <Dave from B™> I had to leave early one trip and missed it by 3 hours
09:28:48 <Kat> I have a Giantess :)
09:29:19 <Lori S> oh dear. I haven't gotten a Giantess either and non-gazing Bob felt it while working in the Inn one year and ran oput.
09:29:27 <ynpvisitor22> A Dave Trifecta. Anemone, Pump, and Sprinkler?
09:29:29 <Dave from B™> I ready for the geyser of a thousand vents to wakeup
09:29:34 <Dave from B™> haha 22
09:29:48 <Kat> :)
09:30:24 <Teri> DB - I think I that; I waited until 9pm but it got cold; planned to be back by 6am, but SB went at 5:18, 9/24/18
09:31:01 <Teri> DB I think I saw that*
09:31:39 <Lori S> 1000 vents?
09:31:47 <Teri> Kat - way cool, Giantess!
09:32:02 <Dave from B™> F&M....more like a hundred:)
09:32:06 <Kat> It was a walk up - surprise!!!
09:32:13 <Lori S> Oh, right.
09:32:35 <Teri> like catching a jackpot with one coin, lol
09:32:43 <LindaG> ☹ I don't even have a little cub lol
09:32:44 <Eric> I think Giant platform has more vents then F&M
09:32:50 <Eric> and good morning everyone
09:32:58 <Kat> Indeed! The thumping was amazing!
09:33:04 <Joe> Hi Eric

09:49:47 <Dave from B™> I only teased because I thought you were busy packing:(
09:50:00 <Kat> Dave from B™, My trip was awesome. I got a little tired of the rain/snow/sleet but then who really cares when your in the Park!
09:50:23 <Kat> Glad you planned for next year!
09:50:23 <LindaG> It's ok not a problem. Thanks for the sympathy. 😉

09:51:36 <LindaG> So some time today we'll be cancelling 9 or 10 days at grant, if anyone is I terested.
09:51:38 <Joe> Lion
09:52:03 <Joe> >
09:52:05 <Joe> .
09:52:11 <LindaG> *grant village
09:52:14 <Kat> :lion:
09:52:35 <ynpvisitor999®> so the series still continues :)
09:52:52 <Lori S> i have the big black screen with X :(
09:52:52 <Lori S> Lion
09:53:13 <Lori S> haha. i forgot Iwas resetting the router x was my faulkt!
09:53:18 <Kat> Cam is up - refrsh
09:53:26 <Kat> refresh*
09:53:48 <Lori S> You wouldn't knowI've had 2 cups of coffee
09:53:55 <Joe> I was going to say, you or ISP
09:53:55 <ynpvisitor999®> phew Lori. You made me think it was that time of the day again
09:54:34 <ynpvisitor22> So all this time the circle X was just our routers?
09:54:52 <Joe> no!
09:55:13 <Lori S> No, I had reset the router at work and it hadn't come back up yet.
09:55:38 <Lori S> We have DSL so when the cabins are full, it gets overloaded.
09:56:10 <Eric> So did we hear what they did to fix it yesterday?
09:56:27 <Dave from B™> We thought you fixed it
09:56:34 <Kat> Dome
09:57:05 <ynpvisitor22> Look for it on the website this afternoon. 'we have determined the streaming problem has been a user interface problem'.
09:57:52 <Kat> It's been a good morning!!
09:57:59 <Joe> The Radio people worked on the cam radio yesterday, and found no problem yet, They may have accidentally fixed it (who knows) Or the interefernce has not been turned on yet
09:58:15 <ynpvisitor22> Well, time to go outside and do something.
09:59:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Could have just been a loose connection somewhere.
09:59:41 <Kevin L™🌵> It will be fun to drive without a constant f5.
09:59:56 <ynpvisitor...> Don't mention loose connections. I take it personally :)
10:00:05 <Eric> a user interface problem? PBCAK Error!
10:00:07 <Dave from B™> haha Kent
10:00:12 <Kat> Looks great today, maybe the should leave well enough alone now..
10:00:24 <Dave from B™> Eric, I'm reading that as Peanut Butter Cake
10:00:25 <Joe> Lets hope, I have "heroed" many fixes like that over the years :)
10:00:37 <Kat> Kevin are you on?
10:00:42 <Eric> Look it up!
10:00:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
10:00:53 <Eric> No Kevin here
10:00:55 <Kat> Thanks!
10:01:03 <Eric> ohhh, on that :-P
10:01:08 <Lori S> mmm peanut butter cake
10:01:29 <Eric> Peanut Butter Cheesecake!
10:01:29 <Dave from B™> haha
10:01:38 <Eric> Yummmmm
10:01:51 <Kat> LOL
10:02:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Did you see that Reeses peanut butter candy bar. Like a cross between a candy bar and a peanut butter cup.
10:02:06 <Joe> There goes my diet :(
10:02:24 <Eric> No, haven't seen one of those yet Kevin...but I would eat it if I saw it :-D
10:02:25 <ynpvisitor...> Pilot error?
10:02:40 <Eric> PBCAK Error!
10:03:07 <Eric> My guess that means they had it setup wrong :-P
10:03:20 <Kevin L™🌵> They are good Eric. I hadn't seen one until Sunday and it was in a Father's Day pack.
10:03:25 <Joe> Person between ckair and keyboard!
10:03:33 <Eric> Problem
10:03:36 <Joe> Chair*
10:03:57 <Joe> AH! Problem
10:03:59 <ynpvisitor...> If it continues to work I will send cookies.
10:04:09 <Eric> To me?
10:04:13 <Eric> Thanks!
10:04:20 <ynpvisitor...> Radio shop
10:04:26 <Eric> ohhh :-(
10:04:27 <ynpvisitor...> Sorry
10:04:29 <Lori S> I will also swend cookies.
10:04:34 <Dave from B™> Yes, cookies always help
10:04:43 <Lori S> *send
10:04:53 <Eric> Nobody ever sends me cookies :-(
10:04:53 <Joe> send some of Steves, Ihear he makes great cookies!
10:05:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Are those Swedish cookies Lori?
10:05:08 <Eric> Steve's cookies are legendary!
10:05:29 <Dave from B™> I wonder how many cookies Steve bakes in a year
10:05:43 <Lori S> Haha Kevin, No, Linda cookies, :) I make a good oatmeal chocolate chip with dried cherries...
10:05:44 <ynpvisitor...> Not only the cookies but that he is always willing to share:heart:
10:05:46 <Eric> I guess I need to just kill chat and make it unusable for a few weeks and then magically fix it!
10:05:46 <ynpvisitor999®> well, technically you've been sent a lot of cookies, Eric - they're just not edible and sometimes annoying as heck
10:05:59 <Rice> I stand at my desk so no chance of PBCAK errors!
10:06:21 <Eric> Stand desk is a good idea Rice
10:06:25 <Eric> I really should do that
10:06:33 <Joe> You would be PBWAK
10:06:36 <Eric> It's true Jarno
10:06:59 <Eric> People send me their inedible cookies :-P
10:07:09 <Kevin L™🌵> There was a guy that owned a railroad dome dining car we would use for safety presentations. While we did presentations he would bake cookies and then bring them up to the dome when we finished.
10:07:28 <Eric> Ohhh nice!
10:07:35 <Eric> All this food talk is making me hungry
10:08:03 <Joe> 2 hours to lunch :(
10:08:09 <Kevin L™🌵>
10:08:12 <Eric> Alright...I have a meeting, so enjoy beehive
10:08:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Joe already used BH up
10:08:42 <Katie> domain is registered with the company I work for. The customer who owned it just said I can have it. They had a camera store and photo lab here in Missoula for many years.
10:08:44 <Joe> :thumbsup:
10:09:28 <Dave from B™> nice, Katie
10:09:40 <Eric> Nice katie
10:09:56 <Eric> enjoy your new domain...or sell it and make a few grand :-FD
10:09:59 <Kat> Awesome Katie!
10:12:26 <Katie> We also had an access point at their residence. That was the other part of the conversation - we need to remove our equipment before the closing date as the new owner doesn't want it there.
10:12:30 <Lori S> Nice Katie! Bye Eric.
10:12:52 <Katie> We anticipated that and have already removed our AP radios, so...
10:13:47 <Teri> nice Katie, congrats!
10:15:38 <Katie> I've had a working relationship with them for 20 years or so. Very good people. I was sorry to hear of the husband's passing. I was also sorry when they closed the camera store to retire.
10:17:06 <ynpvisitor999®> sad :(
10:22:06 <Kat> bbl
10:26:34 <Joe> What will the next Grand interval be? we had a 7h 30 min one last night, you could see many flashlights leaving the area in the last hour
10:26:38 <Lori S> Dome
10:27:18 <Dave from B™> That was a big outlier
10:28:38 <ynpvisitor80> Katie, that's great Katie, congrats
10:29:47 <Katie> thanks, I'm tickled pink to acquire that domain name.
10:30:10 <LindaG> Katie, 👍

11:37:20 <Steph> Hi Everyone!
11:37:32 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
11:37:35 <Katie> Hi Steph
11:37:38 <Lori S> Hello
11:38:35 <Eric> Hi Steph
11:38:49 <Joe> Where is the BH p[osted?
11:39:08 <Eric> 1115 ns Joe
11:39:38 <Katie> It's not up on my recent times box???
11:40:00 <Kevin L™🌵> That is Bulger's Hole
11:40:07 <Lori S> Oh, I thought you meant Bee
11:40:09 <Kevin L™🌵> BH was 0335
11:40:12 <Eric> BH = Bulger's Hole
11:40:13 <Joe> AH Bulgers Hole not Beehive my bad
11:40:24 <Katie> ha ha! I was reading it as Beehive, too.
11:40:27 <Eric> ohh,sorry...wrong BH :-P
11:40:54 <Lori S> B H not BH ?
11:41:03 <Eric> That works Lori
11:41:09 <Eric> B.H.
11:41:17 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
11:41:19 <Eric> or just B.H
11:41:29 <Eric> I will use that from now on
11:41:49 <Joe> I still am not smart enough to figure that out on my own :)
11:42:43 <Lori S> Ooo, Turban
11:42:49 <Eric> look for an 1157 grand
11:42:50 <Lori S> on GT
11:43:08 <Joe> You can take a horse to water....:)
11:43:30 <Steph> Just looked at prediction times, lucky people get to see a sunset Great Fountain!
11:44:27 <Lori S> maybe
11:44:37 <Joe> Hi Steph< i missed your entrance
11:44:46 <Eric> Yep..GF is in a great cycle right now...early morning and evening eruptions
11:45:29 <Steph> Hi Joe!
11:45:50 <Lori S> GF sunsets are amazing!
11:46:06 <Eric> Yep, hard to beat GF or Fountain at sunset
11:46:22 <Lori S> SB by full moon?
11:46:22 <Steph> The pics people post are so beautiful!
11:46:22 <Eric> But the GF reflections are pretty amazing
11:46:49 <Eric> Full Moon SB would be pretty cool
11:46:53 <Joe> I have seen a few GFs at sunset but not Fountain
11:47:43 <Eric> Fountain is really nice with the sun setting behind clepsydra
11:48:20 <ynpvisitor68> Long and sting
11:48:59 <ynpvisitor68> oops, Long and STRONG Great Fountain means post sunset eruption
11:49:10 <ynpvisitor68> Dusk maybe
11:49:26 <Lori S> I have a SB (splashing not majoring) from last year after sunset with the fullish moon glistening off the runoff. Gorgeous!
11:49:40 <Steph> Wow!
11:50:07 <Dave from B™> Hi, Steph
11:50:31 <Steph> Hi Dave from B™!
11:50:58 <Joe> Grand in 6 muin?
11:51:08 <Joe> min*
11:52:03 <LindaG> Steph, hi
11:52:06 <Lori S> If I recall, I was being eaten by mosquitos at the time. LOL
11:52:14 <Steph> Hi LindaG!!
11:52:38 <Joe> I am always a misquito meal ;(
11:52:59 <LindaG> Mosquitos and ticks love me!
11:53:28 <Joe> It must be the Italian in me
11:55:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Someone told me to start taking B complex vitamins about 2 months before you go and they leave you alone. Worked for me last year.
11:55:29 <Steph> Kevin L™🌵, I have several friends who swear by that method.
11:55:34 <Joe> I'll try that
11:57:32 <Casey> Grand
11:57:43 <Joe> Grand
11:59:10 <Kat> :) Lots of people at Grand!
12:03:16 <Joe> there were many at last nights 2336 but at 6 hours many lights started leaving, it continued with more lights leaving through the hour there were just a few lights left at 7h 30 min eruption
12:10:02 <Eric> Grand at 1157...who knew ;-)
12:10:40 <Eric> I think Polly's watch might be off
12:11:01 <Kat> I think so as well....
12:11:01 <Eric> Not that it makes a huge difference
12:11:09 <Joe> nope
12:11:23 <Kat> It really doesn"t
12:12:46 <Joe> over a million years all grands today will just run together
12:12:59 <Eric> :-D
12:13:05 <Kat> I guess I really have not pid attention to the crowds in the past, But then I didn't start the webcam operating till September 18
12:13:23 <Eric> More just a note in case Polly is reading this to double check her watch against a cell phone time.
12:13:38 <Joe> I have stood in those crowds
12:15:30 <Joe> Last year the crowds darn near pushed my rollator and I off of the boardwalk :)
12:16:37 <Joe> tourists in a hurry have no tolerance for the handicaped
12:16:39 <Kat> Guess that's why I stay away in summer!
12:20:27 <Dave from B™> I love the summer weather. There are ways to get away from the crowds
12:20:32 <Eric> Test
12:20:49 <Eric> Weird...had a hiccup there with chat. None of my messages where getting sent
12:20:58 <Eric> and cam showed as down
12:21:04 <Eric> Anyone else?
12:21:13 <Dave from B™> Who broke it?
12:21:18 <ynpvisitor38> I had bad gateway
12:21:20 <Eric> Lion
12:21:23 <Katie> I didn't chat during that period, but it looked fine...
12:21:46 <Eric> 1219 - 1221 about
12:21:52 <Dave from B™> I had something snarky to say and bad gateway made me forget
12:21:56 <Eric> and webcam failing again
12:22:03 <Kevin L™🌵> I was knocked out of controls.
12:22:21 <Eric> Don't think it was just me then
12:22:28 <Kevin L™🌵> No
12:22:44 <Eric> Craigs fault!
12:22:52 <Kevin L™🌵> I was booted from controls again.
12:22:57 <Joe> One group of 7, 6 women and 1 male wearing GOSA patches and such on their shirts and hats did manage to get me partialy off of the BW :)
12:23:14 <CraigC2> I thought I had a brain fart, I typed a message twice and it didn't show
12:23:24 <ynpvisitor999®> G1Q
12:23:32 <Eric> Internets are wonky
12:24:02 <Joe> same here Craig it was a big failure not just the cam but GT also
12:24:04 <ynpvisitor88> I was booted from this site!
12:24:28 <Eric> Yes, something was wonkey in the internets
12:24:32 <Kevin L™🌵> May be power issues at OF
12:24:40 <Eric> wouldn't affect this page
12:24:41 <Katie> A-okay here
12:24:46 <Kat1> Same thing happened to me Craig
12:24:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Did anyone get the Lion start time?
12:24:57 <Katie> Brief lag in the stream during Lion, but that was all
12:24:58 <Joe> would that effect GT?
12:25:02 <Eric> Might have been a router hiccup someplace on the internet
12:25:12 <Eric> Yes...GT stalled out during that time as well Joe
12:25:24 <CraigC2> I just got back from biking, how has the webcam been today?
12:25:28 <Eric> I think major internet issue caused that
12:25:28 <Kat1> not me
12:25:39 <Eric> Glad it was temporary
12:25:47 <Joe> Great!! Craig
12:25:48 <Kevin L™🌵> This is the first issue for me Craig.
12:26:00 <Eric> Yes and I don't think that was related to the cam
12:26:02 <Steph> I thought we were blaming CraigC2? Hi BTW! :lol:
12:26:10 <CraigC2> has anyone reported anything that got fixed yetserday?
12:26:15 <Dave from B™> Did it happen and the same time CraigC arrived?
12:26:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> where is Dave?
12:26:21 <Joe> we can chalk that one up as not cam
12:26:23 <CraigC2> hey Steph
12:26:23 <Dave from B™> I'm here
12:26:26 <Eric> Cam and this site died at the same time for me...but google was easily reachable
12:26:34 <Dave from B™> Craig just showed has to be him
12:26:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> did you rn over something or unplug the internet?
12:26:38 <Eric> Craigs fault
12:26:38 <Kat1> hahaha GO STEAMBOAT,
12:26:55 <Dave from B™> haha
12:27:11 <Joe> yes Craigs Falt
12:27:13 <CraigC2> blame CraigC, not me
12:27:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> Dave had to 1 up Craig and his mailbox incident
12:27:22 <Joe> fault
12:27:51 <Dave from B™> God no...not 2 of you
12:28:01 <Joe> any Craigxx is suspect
12:28:03 <Dave from B™> Do you each own a trailer?
12:28:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats why the internet exploded
12:28:19 <CraigC2> I know nothing of CraigC, ask him yourself
12:28:56 <CraigC> ummm
12:29:07 <Steph> Eric, got Lion at 12:21:20
12:29:14 <Dave from B™> I don't have his number but I do have his g/f Jenny's. I'll call her
12:29:39 <CraigC> you deleted my contact info?
12:30:07 <CraigC> I wonder who I texted that SB eruption to
12:30:08 <Eric> But kept your girlfriends ;-)
12:30:14 <CraigC> LOL
12:30:25 <Eric> Dave is a playa!
12:30:26 <Dave from B™> :D:D
12:30:48 <CraigC> first my mom.....
12:30:56 <Joe> Lion is not on GT so it did not happen!!
12:31:21 <Eric> haha....
12:31:32 <Dave from B™> OK. I'll stop pestering you
12:31:39 <Dave from B™> I surrender
12:35:02 <Joe> I entered the 1220 Lion
12:35:15 <Dave from B™> So, have we seen the shortest SB interval for the year?
12:35:41 <Katie> Or will the next be 2 days and 20 hours?
12:35:54 <Cooper> Finally back in Colorado
12:36:25 <Joe> +sad Cooper
12:36:37 <CraigC> Katie, your Sheldon Cooper comment cracked me up... I say that all the time about some people, and even about myself sometimes
12:36:44 <Kat1> :(
12:37:17 <Katie> CraigC, :)
12:37:30 <Cooper> Joe, at least I got lucky and caught that short SB interval, but I am very sad:(:(
12:37:53 <CraigC> Katie, when my g/f gets too mushy I tell her "remember, I am more like Sheldon than Bradley Cooper"
12:38:21 <Eric> Welcome home Cooper
12:38:32 <Cooper> thx Eric
12:38:48 <Eric> Glad you got a SB!
12:38:48 <CraigC> when is Pence coming back to finish that last section of boardwalk?
12:39:07 <Katie> ha ha CraigC, - on both Bradley vs. Sheldon and Pence & boardwalk
12:39:09 <Katie> You are on a roll
12:39:21 <Eric> They are going to have to demolish the entire BW since pence did such a horrible job adding his boards!
12:40:37 <Kevin L™🌵> I got bumped from GT but figured out my password. I deleted my A time for Lion Joe
12:40:43 <Kat> hahahaha Eric!
12:40:50 <Eric> I think of you as more of a Cheech Marin kinda guy Craig
12:41:28 <Joe> Ah! ok I had a hard time getting GT to take it
12:41:57 <Kat> Difficult to signinto GT
12:42:23 <Kat> sign into*
12:42:52 <Kevin L™🌵> I forgot it needed a Capital letter on my name.
12:42:58 <CraigC> Eric, LOL... or George Costanza?
12:43:03 <Kat> :)
12:43:51 <Dave from B™> George doesn't have hair
12:44:02 <CraigC> Eric, do I have to take the propane tanks off the trailer to get them filled?
12:44:21 <Eric> Probably easiest to do it that way
12:44:33 <Eric> They should just be clamped down
12:45:02 <CraigC> it's more about my bad back
12:45:25 <CraigC> I strained it putting the equalizer on the other day
12:45:32 <Eric> ahh, yes...those larger propane tanks can get quite heavy
12:45:54 <Eric> OF
12:46:11 <Kat> :)
12:46:20 <Kevin L™🌵> If you call the place they can tell you.
12:46:32 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, good idea
12:46:33 <Eric> Yep, probably different for each place.
12:46:46 <Eric> I have always taken mine off
12:47:04 <Joe> Some will fill on the trailer if you can get close enough, some have to weigh the tanks to know what to charge you
12:47:13 <Eric> Nice static shot!
12:51:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Hose length makes a diff too.
12:51:18 <Eric>
12:51:20 <Kat> GT is lagging
12:51:20 <Joe> .
12:52:03 <Joe> Craig, in your case, don't try to get close :)
12:52:13 <CraigC> LMAO touche'
12:52:32 <Kevin L™🌵> .
12:52:59 <Dave from B™> I swear you guys don't wan't me talking here
12:53:10 <Dave from B™> Another 502
12:53:20 <Joe> Dave block is working
12:53:27 <ynpvisitor999®> can we get the GT server a few less bugs?
12:53:51 <Dave from B™> Joe, that's what I thought
12:55:11 <Dave from B™> Craig, sorry about your back. Mine did not like driving for 2100 miles in 5 days
12:55:12 <Joe> the Flag is whiping the pole
12:55:57 <CraigC> Dave from B™, thanks... too much sitting bothers mine too
12:56:08 <Joe> or Ynp moved to California
12:56:14 <Dave from B™> Did we miss a couple of Lions between 0951 and 1220?
12:56:19 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:56:20 <CraigC> biking is good medicine
12:56:45 <Dave from B™> Yeah...walking helps me
12:57:04 <Dave from B™> Ever since I ruptured a disk about 5 years ago, it hasn't been the same
12:57:19 <Joe> ouch!
12:57:31 <CraigC> yikes
12:57:48 <Dave from B™> Ten years of lifting fresh boxes at the airport did me in. Salmon and Halibut boxes get over 100# each
12:58:30 <CraigC> whoa
12:58:39 <Dave from B™> Part of my reason for losing wieght is to try to stegthen my core and make my back happy. Still a work in progress
12:59:32 <CraigC> during college I worked at the bookstore for over a year, lifting textbook boxes in and out of a delivery van, I think that started my problems
12:59:57 <CraigC> racquetball was the worst thing, though
13:00:14 <Katie> My husband's doc told him a couple weeks ago his ladder slinging days should be done if he wants to enjoy retirement days. So, his new job lasted a month or so. And then the fool installed a new fan in our bedroom yesterday (which I'm glad to have, but..)
13:00:17 <Dave from B™> That's a fun sport
13:00:59 <CraigC> I used to play 3 to 5 days a week. But I was going to the chiropractor all the time
13:03:04 <Joe> wouldn't it be ironic that after moving the cam because the tree might fall, that the Flag Pole breaks?
13:05:03 <Katie> Cam is actually on deck rail, so while flat pole might break dome if it breaks...
13:05:27 <CraigC> hahahah
13:14:58 <Joe 1> cam location
13:15:47 <Katie> In the closeup photos I've seen, it's clamped to wood structure of the crow's nest.
13:16:18 <Joe> Yes that is it
13:16:53 <Eric> You can actually look at the housing by turning the camera around :-D
13:16:57 <Eric> or the mount I shouldsay
13:17:00 <Eric> should say
13:17:51 <Joe 1> close up
13:20:00 <Joe 1> picture from cam includes radio link
13:22:40 <Joe 1> pole, wiper and sprayer
13:25:17 <Joe> Aurum
13:25:46 <ynpvisitor999®> .
13:25:46 <ynpvisitor999®> .
13:25:47 <ynpvisitor999®> .
13:26:04 <ynpvisitor65> yeah!!
13:26:12 <ynpvisitor999®> fun, 4h35m interval
13:26:31 <Dave from B™> nice
13:27:03 <ynpvisitorCC> Afternoon everyone
13:27:20 <Joe> Hi CC
13:27:20 <Kevin L™🌵> It knows
13:27:39 <Kevin L™🌵> :P
13:27:44 <ynpvisitorCC> How has the cam behaving today
13:27:50 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon CC
13:27:55 <Joe> Great!!
13:27:57 <Kevin L™🌵> Only 2 hiccups
13:28:17 <Dave from B™> Hi, CC. Do you know if they actually were working on it yesterday?
13:28:26 <ynpvisitor999®> so far it's behaved surprisingly well, at last.
13:28:39 <Joe> I doi and yes
13:28:54 <Kat> It's been really good!
13:29:04 <Kat> :)
13:29:31 <Joe> Aurum 1324:50 to 1326:20
13:29:36 <ynpvisitorCC> good to hear
13:29:50 <Dave from B™> Thanks Joe
13:29:59 <ynpvisitor999®> 1½m after 4½h interval. Awesome!
13:30:37 <Kevin L™🌵> And I was gone 1321 to 1327.
13:30:52 <ynpvisitor999®> it knows, as aways...
13:30:54 <Joe> ouch
13:33:03 <Joe> I think they accidentally fixed the Radio while handling it, DaveK said they found no problem yet
13:33:50 <Joe> I have had things fix themselves whilw vlooking at them :)
13:33:59 <ynpvisitorCC> I am confused...I thought they had to go down to OF to fix it
13:34:12 <Joe> They Did
13:34:25 <Katie> It may seem nice when things "fix themselves," but I actually hate it. Because then when it "breaks itself" again, I can't duplicate the fix. I like to know what I did that made it work.
13:34:43 <ynpvisitorCC> I did not know they went down to OF
13:35:11 <Joe> They had to go to the INN and direct connect to It after making a change that locked it up
13:35:15 <Katie> yeah, Dave said they had to connect to radio locally to change frequencies.
13:35:29 <ynpvisitorCC> I thought they were going to change the frequency and go down
13:36:04 <Katie> With the radio offline, they would have to go there physically to connect to it locally (physically) - can't interface with it when it's offline.
13:36:38 <Joe> Theyvdid ckange it to 30 mhz, it did not like that it is now back to 40
13:37:01 <ynpvisitorCC> I am lost!!!
13:37:21 <Joe> After the went there and connected to it
13:37:24 <Katie> Frequency changes often require reboots to save the setting change. So it was rebooted at least twice. That might have been the silver bullet.
13:37:33 <Kevin L™🌵> You just hook it to the gonculator and adjust.
13:37:45 <Joe> yes
13:38:05 <ynpvisitorCC> Meanwhile the car that was hit by the deer on the way home from Yellowstone is FINALLY fixed.
13:38:18 <Joe> good
13:38:20 <ynpvisitor999®> uhmm... okay... *just sits there looking at the word salad*
13:38:24 <ynpvisitorCC> I did not like being a one car famlly
13:38:36 <Katie> That's good news, ynpvisitorCC. Every time I've been hit by a deer, my vehicle as been totalled.
13:38:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds like you fared better than the other deer killer.
13:39:02 <ynpvisitorCC> yes..I would say so
13:39:44 <Kevin L™🌵> After 5 years, I am back to being a 2 car family. :)
13:40:41 <Joe> nice Kevin
13:40:48 <ynpvisitorCC> Katie are you home now?
13:41:11 <Katie> ynpvisitorCC, yes, but leaving again after work tomorrow and will be in the Park again Fri - Monday evenint
13:41:38 <Dave from B™> Just got my damage call...$5700
13:41:45 <ynpvisitorCC> nice living so close that you can do that
13:41:51 <Dave from B™> Parts are being ordered as we speak
13:42:22 <ynpvisitor14> what is your deductible?
13:43:17 <Dave from B™> $500
13:43:25 <ynpvisitor14> Katie, is your goal to see SB?
13:43:48 <Kevin L™🌵> How long?
13:44:20 <Dave from B™> To fix?
13:44:29 <Katie> ynpvisitor14, that's one of my wishes. Last week I had initially planned on spending Fri at SB, then it went on Wed, so I thought I'd spend Monday there, and it went on Saturday. But this coming Saturday is 3 days from now, so...
13:44:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
13:45:15 <ynpvisitor14> well good luck. You were signed in here the whole time you were gone, so I was confused about when you were in the park
13:45:16 <Joe> most body shops waive the deductible
13:45:27 <ynpvisitor14> that is funny Joe
13:45:28 <Katie> Since I was only going to be away for a few days, I ALMOST paid to keep my site at Norris CG, but decided that was obnoxious to others that could use it for those 3 nights.
13:45:53 <ynpvisitorCC> Guess I will do some quilting...see you all tomorrow
13:45:57 <ynpvisitor14> no body shop I have ever heard of has waived the deductible
13:46:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Enjoy yourself cc
13:46:32 <Joe> everyone I've used here in vwyoming has
13:46:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Not many quiters around anymore
13:46:54 <ynpvisitor14> wow, maybe I'll go to WY for my next car that needs fixing
13:47:03 <Katie> When I was rear-ended a few years ago, body shop did waive deductible.
13:47:28 <ynpvisitor14> for how much damage?
13:47:46 <Katie> I think it was around $6k
13:47:56 <Katie> and my deductible was $500
13:48:21 <Joe> about the same here
13:48:32 <Joe> Dome
13:49:01 <Kevin L™🌵> I had to pay it for the rock.
13:49:19 <Katie> And I had done previous business with him, and referred others to him. Have done business with him again since (repairing a door of my Jeep that I dropped) and will again, if and when there is need.
13:49:37 <Steph> Well I'm off to buy some extracalafragalistic supportive nurse shoes. My feet hate me after standing all day. It's so not nice getting old. See ya'll!
13:50:10 <Joe> good luck Steph
13:50:22 <Dave from B™> 14, I've never heard of that, either but I'm not in the habit of major car damages, either.
13:50:50 <Kevin L™🌵> I would hate asking someone for those. It could sprain your tongue!
13:51:21 <Joe> They have done itvfor me in Rock Springs and Thermopolis
13:51:23 <Katie> Except for dropping my Jeep door (which was less than deductible to repair, so I just paid), I have not been at fault in any of the body damage incidents that I've had.
13:51:52 <Joe> same here
13:52:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I avoid traffic when ever possible.
13:52:16 <Joe> no jeep door though :)
13:53:23 <Katie> Yeah, that was pretty embarassing.
13:53:30 <Joe> 2 Deer, 1 eagle, 2 was rear ended
13:54:33 <Kevin L™🌵> I had a friend that bought a new car and he was hit by a telephone booth on the way home.
13:54:41 <Katie> 1 deer, 1 large bird ($2500 in damage!), rear-ended twice. One time damage was very minor - she didn't hit me hard. The other time, it bent the frame.
13:54:50 <ynpvisitor14> you hit an eagle Joe?
13:55:09 <Dave from B™> I will change one thing. Even though Interstae speed limit is 80 at night; I will never drive 80 in the dark again
13:55:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Isn't that an old AMC car Joe?
13:55:30 <Joe> Yes, killed with my windshield and roof
13:55:37 <Kevin L™🌵> I never drive 80 in the light. I don't feel safe.
13:55:54 <ynpvisitor14> that must have been a sad day Joe
13:56:17 <ynpvisitor14> and also, there is a geyser named ROOF?
13:56:34 <Joe> i still get sick to my stomach about it.
13:56:49 <ynpvisitor999®> yes, #14. It's on the Hill
13:56:49 <Katie> My deer strike was 45-55MPH, driving home, around 6:00pm, in the fall. The body damage wasn't that bad, but it shoved the radiator into the engine block - engine was destroyed. My dad had two deer strikes during his commuting days that also totaled vehicles.
13:57:17 <ynpvisitor14> Dave was lucky, considering he was going 80
13:57:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Not a lot of deer in the desert. :)
13:57:25 <Katie> VERY!
13:57:54 <Katie> My cousin-in-law hit a moose at 65MPH. Seeing photos of the car, I can't believe they survived.
13:57:54 <ynpvisitor14> it is so weird to have the cam be streaming while we are chatting.
13:58:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Moose hits are UGLY!
13:58:28 <ynpvisitor14> Moose can be deadly
13:58:41 <Joe> 80 should have totaled the car, toyota must build good highlanders
13:58:55 <Kat> I hit a large buck at dusk, deer dead, my Subaru caught on fire and burned completely - saved all me camera gear!
13:59:03 <Katie> I've come close to hitting moose twice - close calls.
14:00:22 <ynpvisitor14> moose are like bison, very hard to see at night, and they also come out of nowhere on two lane roads
14:00:35 <Dave from B™> Joe, I bet I was down to 70 by the time I hit the deer. I cuoldn't tell since my eyes were closed
14:00:51 <Katie> My aunt hit a black bear driving from my house into hotel in Missoula (I told them to just stay!). That totaled a Jeep Cherokee. But they paid the extra and repaired it. But the detailing was the big job - somehow bear crap ended up IN the vehicle. STINKY
14:01:18 <ynpvisitor14> wow Katie, that is crazy
14:01:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Moose are also higher than bison or deer and go through the windshield easier.
14:02:04 <ynpvisitor14> so was Lion one and done, or was it missed because of OF?
14:02:14 <Dave from B™> I hit the deer in the side. I think if it was staring at me, it could have come through the windshuield that was less than 1 week old.
14:02:36 <Katie> Exactly, Kevin. The aftermath photos of my cousin-in-law's moose incident show moose in the passenger seats with legs sticking out the windshield, roof crushed. They pulled her out from under the moose.
14:02:49 <Joe> Dave did air bags go off at that speed
14:03:00 <Kevin L™🌵> The story of Paul S hitting the moose was priceless. It was an ugly event but in typical Paul fashion he made a great story out of it.
14:03:01 <Dave from B™> No, becuase car kept rolling
14:03:33 <ynpvisitor14> I have heard Paul S bison story, yet not a moose story
14:03:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Paul was bison not moose. Oops.
14:03:59 <ynpvisitor14> glad he did not have both
14:06:20 <Kevin L™🌵> For sure. One is enough of either
14:06:52 <Dave from B™> It's so hard to use brights on the Interstae in Montana naymore because traffic is heavier than 20 years ago
14:06:52 <Katie> did you guys hear about the 3 griz struck by trains near Glacier?
14:06:57 <Betty> afternoon all
14:06:58 <Katie> (last week(
14:07:02 <Dave from B™> Yeah. that was traggic
14:07:08 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
14:07:09 <Joe> Hi Betty
14:07:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi Betty.
14:07:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Haven't heard about the train vs griz.
14:07:43 <Betty> hi Dave, Kevin and Joe
14:08:10 <Katie> 2 separate incidents, Kevin. Mama was truck one day and her two yearlings the next.
14:08:12 <Kevin L™🌵> My friend almost hit a bear in his train near Chama NM once.
14:08:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow.
14:10:09 <Kevin L™🌵>
14:12:00 <Betty> I think my car looks almost the same as your today, Dave :-( A Lady hit mine while she was coming backwards out of a parking lot.
14:12:51 <Betty> I tried to swerve, but she was too fast for me :-p
14:13:09 <Dave from B™> Sorry, Betty
14:13:33 <Betty> I think it will not survive
14:14:34 <Teri> hey Betty; sorry to hear that, but good that you're ok; cars are replaceable, you're not
14:15:03 <Betty> thanks, yes, so true
14:15:28 <Teri> a colossal headache to take care of the aftermath however
14:15:42 <Katie> that it is
14:15:53 <Betty> view seems to be shaky today
14:15:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds like a rough year for gazer cars.
14:18:18 <Joe> Windy Flag is shaking the pole
14:18:49 <Katie> The gusts during my drive into Missoula this morning were trying to push me off the road (or into oncoming traffic).
14:20:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Almost an hour's worth of extended fill for NG
14:20:31 <Katie> that's a change from Monday - it was cycling about every 20 minutes on Monday
14:20:33 <ynpvisitor999®> hopefully in some 20 minutes an eruption
14:21:10 <ynpvisitor999®> so can we put the cam on GH directly after OF (preferably on Lion, if possible)
14:25:39 <Joe> OF
14:33:05 <Joe> is that bubblers at Bee or shakey white tones?
14:34:28 <ynpvisitor100> boy camera is shaky
14:34:33 <Cooper> it can be, bubblers at less than 12 hours?
14:34:35 <Joe> can't tell
14:34:50 <Betty> splash
14:34:57 <Kat> too windy
14:35:36 <Cooper> although I hope there are bubblers
14:36:07 <Betty> hi Cooper, are you still in the park?
14:36:14 <Joe> yeah, we do not need night time Bees
14:36:49 <ynpvisitor999®> nearing the 20m mark for NG
14:37:39 <Cooper> no I got home today
14:38:11 <Kevin L™🌵> And you didn't hit a deer?
14:38:12 <Joe> What part of Colorado
14:38:27 <Cooper> Colorado Springs, CO
14:38:41 <Betty> you had a fun trip
14:38:43 <Joe> Ah, thanks
14:38:43 <Cooper> Near the mountains, not in the city
14:38:46 <Dave from B™> haha Kevin
14:39:44 <Cooper> I loved the trip, but on day 1 and 2 I missed BH by 1 hour, but missing BH on day 2 let me get SB, and I still got it the next 2 days
14:40:09 <Joe> nice
14:41:04 <Cooper> it seems like south bubblers are acting like a 15 minute indy, while the real indy is more like 1 minute or less
15:06:13 <Dave from B™> Time to go sweat for the first time in 8 days. Have a great eveing everyone!
15:07:26 <Cooper> bye Dave
15:07:42 <Cooper> who has cam?
15:08:06 <Betty> bye Dave
15:12:50 <Joe> daisy soon
15:13:23 <Joe> /
15:14:16 <Joe> Must be gone for a bit
15:15:08 <Joe> looks like a storm coming in
15:16:18 <Joe> Kevin are you around
15:19:01 <Kat> It's Graham - I can do it for now..
15:20:03 <Joe> I think Daisy is done
15:20:23 <Kat> Kevin - do you have the cam? Do you want me to take?
15:20:44 <Joe> I thought Graham was 1600
15:21:26 <Kat> Is he on?
15:21:32 <CraigC> is that a bobcat loader on the path?
15:22:05 <Kevin L™🌵> Graham comes on at 1600
15:22:06 <Joe> Probably he moved the cam, he is in mobile I think
15:22:38 <Joe> looks like
15:22:56 <Kat> Ok - so you're still on Kevin... Thanks
15:23:12 <Joe> Bulger
15:23:42 <Kevin L™🌵> I have to keep checking the switch to make sure nobody turned my off.
15:24:39 <CraigC> seems like this is the windiest it has been with this cam, but then, my memory resets daily
15:25:12 <Joe> your memory is doing well craig
15:25:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Darn near shaky as the tree.
15:26:22 <Kat> Lots of trucks etc... wonder whats up?
15:26:51 <Kevin L™🌵> May be patching potholes.
15:27:01 <Joe> path maintenance ?
15:27:09 <Kat> maybe
15:27:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> i see NG tried and failed
15:27:29 <CraigC> I had a memory lapse last week that seriously almost brought me to tears..... there was a t-shirt in the living room for a few days, and I finally asked my g/f about it, and we lifted it up and it was a Lebowski for President shirt that she gave me for my birthday, and I drew a blank
15:27:32 <Joe> Hi Graham
15:27:32 <Kat> Hi Graham
15:27:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Either that or some really stupid tourists.
15:27:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> i wondered what it would do after the nice Lion series
15:28:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> ooh i hate this cam shake
15:28:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> hello. SB tomorrow?
15:28:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> that is a perfectly formed SB signature on the seismo today
15:28:56 <Kat> So shaky! I don't think I've seen it this bad.
15:29:08 <Betty> bulger is maj
15:29:16 <Kat> What???
15:29:20 <Cooper> GO STEAMBOAT, SB tomorrow?, how it went this morning
15:29:31 <Joe> Thanks for the reminder Betty
15:29:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> just figured it was about time it had a short interval to shake things up
15:29:45 <Kat> Well that's disheartening!
15:29:50 <CraigC> bulgers hole entered
15:29:50 <Betty> cam down :-(
15:29:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Graham broke the cam.
15:30:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least that stopped the shaking
15:30:01 <Kat> :)
15:30:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe i get the evening off
15:30:26 <CraigC> SB signature looks like a rocket taper fly line
15:30:55 <ynpvisitor80> Graham breaks the cam AGAIN
15:31:09 <CraigC> he wants the evenin goff
15:31:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> wait, i keep fixing it in the evenuing for you
15:31:28 <ynpvisitor80> how do you figure that?
15:31:40 <Joe> I hope that is century link
15:31:49 <Betty> first you break it then you fix it?
15:32:02 <ynpvisitor80> SB signature are easily seen when it is the middle of the night, no other seismic traces
15:32:08 <Kevin L™🌵> May be a power outage.
15:32:19 <ynpvisitor80> the signature looks very small to me
15:32:47 <Cooper> I wonder if SB had any silent pauses
15:33:14 <Joe> with all the wind a tree was bound th hit a power line?
15:33:17 <ynpvisitor80> this signature a lot different than last, so I would guess no
15:35:31 <Cooper> ynpvisitor80, to me it looks roughly the same, once you take out all the other traces
15:36:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> so to me it looks like a strong water and no pause eruption. Thinner traces have often corresponded with heavy water and less steam. The eruptions with pauses seem to have more variable traces. But who knows
15:36:34 <ynpvisitor80> the last trace disappeared after the start
15:36:51 <ynpvisitor80> this one was steady
15:36:55 <ynpvisitor80> and yes, who knows?
15:37:01 <Eric> Cam down for anyone else?
15:37:08 <Cooper> ynpvisitor80, was looking at wrong eruption, oops, but really who knows?
15:37:14 <Joe> yes Eric
15:37:16 <Cooper> yes Eric
15:37:20 <ynpvisitor80> Eric, Graham broke it
15:37:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> we missed a BH
15:37:29 <ynpvisitor80> or not
15:37:33 <Eric> it's B.H Graham :-D
15:37:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Graham messed it up
15:37:47 <Joe> a Bulgers Hole? :)
15:37:55 <ynpvisitor80> Joe caught BH this early am
15:37:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> the other one should be bh .. no caps for the h
15:38:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> Bh
15:38:07 <Eric> :-D
15:38:09 <Eric> true
15:38:12 <ynpvisitor80> ha ha
15:38:17 <ynpvisitor80> just call it THE HOLE
15:38:21 <CraigC> how about BHole
15:38:29 <Eric> Kinda like Da Bears
15:38:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> too many letters
15:38:49 <Eric> B.H makes it so you don't have the link too
15:39:10 <ynpvisitor80> most folks on chat will think you are talking about Beehive
15:39:12 <Eric> and it's a tiny hole in between the letters :-P
15:39:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> the link is wrong
15:40:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> BH is much more interesting than Bh
15:40:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Well we missed a Daisy
15:40:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> and an OT
15:41:08 <Joe> On the replay you will plainly see Bulgers Hole very nice at this distance
15:41:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> what are all the vehicles doing?
15:41:35 <Eric> Sitty still
15:41:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> are they putting Michelin pavement in?
15:41:36 <Joe> path maint.?
15:41:39 <Eric> Sitting
15:42:13 <Eric> Preparing for Pence's next visit?
15:42:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> those peeps have been standing still for a long time too
15:42:22 <ynpvisitor999®> Michelin pavement would probably consist out of burnt rubber and/or restaurant stars
15:42:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> installing the fireworks?
15:42:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Tourists with an old GPS map to Morning Glory Pool
15:42:40 <Eric> ohhh, are they going to replace the bike path this year?
15:43:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> it will take a decade to do it ... took months to do the bit around Riverside
15:43:15 <Eric> Gotta say I love walking on that new recycled tire path stuff
15:43:42 <Joe> is it solid or loose?
15:44:10 <Eric> I think the bike path has a good gravel bed....riverside was pretty much asphalt over dirt
15:44:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Solid but softer than regular
15:44:44 <CraigC> I could tell a difference, I like it too
15:44:45 <Joe> can I push a rollator through it?
15:44:53 <Eric> I watched them for about 1/2 hour while they were ripping up the asphalt in front of some decent videos of it
15:44:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes
15:45:06 <Joe> thanks
15:45:06 <Eric> Yes, easily joe
15:45:22 <Eric> It's like rubberized asphalt
15:45:30 <Eric> more bounce in your step
15:45:32 <Joe> thanks
15:46:00 <Eric> probably leeches nasty chemicals into the soil though...not sure they have done much study of that
15:47:16 <Kat> Graham, sent you an e-mail.
15:47:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks Kat
15:47:59 <Eric> daughter is doing a chemistry research paper on thermal spring temperatures based on silica presence.
15:48:11 <Eric> For one of her senior projects
15:48:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> excuse for a trip to the park Eric?
15:49:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> summer is opera lul time Kat ... i only have 3 to see in 3 months :(
15:49:45 <Kat> No problem Graham, I love that you love the operas!
15:50:07 <Kat> Never seen one - thinking I might like them too!
15:50:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> will get busy again after LD
15:50:10 <Joe> this outage is not the cam, must be something else I can see the radio link status at the Ranger sta and inn updating
15:51:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> there are lots of good popular operas to get started on ....... and hundreds of others
15:51:15 <Kat> Can't connect to the control cam Joe.
15:51:27 <ynpvisitor999®> OF ie static
15:51:31 <Joe> Well it could be the cam but the radio link is up
15:51:32 <Eric> Nope...we are going to get water samples from local hot springs Graham
15:51:53 <Kat> I'm going to check it out here in Florida!
15:51:56 <Eric> We have many hot springs in the area
15:52:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> OF
15:52:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> where in FL?
15:52:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Kill the wabbit....
15:53:34 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder how the conclusion will stand in Yellowstone, and especially Norris. Definitely sounds interesting
15:53:42 <Kevin L™🌵> Missing OF so not power outage.
15:53:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> loyts of death and destruction in operas
15:54:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> nobody dies this summer tho ... even Death gives up in one of them
15:55:12 <Kat> I live near Cocoa Beach and Melbourne
15:56:45 <Kevin L™🌵> Good for watching rockets
15:57:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> FL Grand in Miami has Butterfly and Rigoletto this season ... but thats away
15:57:14 <Kat> This should not be happening this time of day!
15:57:34 <Kat> Have friends in Palm Beach not really that far!
15:58:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> and they do DOn Giovanni too. People die in all of them
15:58:25 <Kat> The launched Kevin are awesome - step out on my deck and watch!
15:58:50 <Kat> I'm a nurse - death does not bother me Graham! LOL
15:59:03 <CraigC> Kat, seeing the launches would be amazing
16:00:04 <Betty> that looks dark skies on static
16:00:18 <Kat> It is - been doing it since my folks lived here 25 years ago! Came to visit them every year and tried to catch the launches!
16:01:02 <Kat> Raining North Entrance and Mammoth!
16:02:18 <CraigC> glad I didn't drive up today, heard there could be snow
16:04:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> Palm Beach Opera is doing Turandot and Barber of Seville .... only Turandot has deaths
16:06:15 <Kat> Graham - I'm going to check these out!
16:06:34 <Kat> Dinner time - need to get cooking!
16:07:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> theres opera orlando too, Marriage of Figaroand Daughter of the regiment - hardly worth going as nobody dies in either of them
16:08:50 <Kat> LOL Graham - I'm on;y 55 minutes from Orlando!
16:09:11 <Kat> on;y*
16:09:24 <Kat> only*
16:09:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> yeah but nobody dies, so meh
16:11:43 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, have you had a recent psychological assessment?
16:12:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> yes...they let me out of my restraints
16:13:38 <CraigC> lucky
16:13:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> they still arent letting me have my guns back tho :(
16:14:03 <Kat> Ha - awesome - I love it when they let us out of restraints!!!
16:16:44 <GO STEAMBOAT> just dont let us near tourists looking like Gazers
16:17:18 <Kat> hehehehe
16:18:03 <CraigC> LOL
16:18:11 <CraigC> "Get off my lawn!"
16:18:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> so when are you taking the trailer out of the neighborhood Craig?
16:21:43 <CraigC> ha, just took it to the propane store to see if Hank was there
16:22:05 <CraigC> his replacement told me both my tanks are already full
16:22:58 <Betty> BH
16:23:04 <Betty> on static
16:23:18 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
16:23:25 <Kat> :)
16:23:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> nice Bh
16:23:41 <Joe> nice
16:25:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> it was overdue for a short interval
16:25:28 <Eric> ahh, that sucks
16:25:39 <Eric> Boo hiss on the cam being down
16:28:12 <Kevin L™🌵> At least I got the 3:20 to Chama.
16:28:44 <Betty> truck parade is gone, so cam must have been up for a second
16:40:18 <Joe> /
16:44:56 <Betty> headed out, have a great evening all
16:45:06 <CraigC> cya Betty
16:45:18 <Katie> Betty, have a great evening
16:45:26 <ynpvisitor999®> night Betty
16:45:26 <Kevin L™🌵> bye
16:48:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> zzz
17:06:17 <Cooper> I wonder if that 12hr 45min BH interval means that the flow into indy stopped
17:08:03 <ynpvisitor999®> could be, could also be that this is a semi-random event which happens from time to time
17:08:58 <Cooper> I hope it stopped, maybe BH would revert back to 13hr intervals, which would be AWSOME
17:10:05 <Cooper> BBL
17:15:40 <LindaG> Well it was a good run on the cam
17:16:38 <CraigC> hey Linda, sorry about your plans
17:22:45 <LindaG> CraigC, thx craig
17:24:30 <LindaG> It's stupid really took some medicine that i had problems with. My fault I should have waited till I got back.
17:25:25 <Ryan(98)>
17:26:04 <Katie> Look at all that green in the prediction window!
17:26:30 <Ryan(98)> NEw update. At this point in the active phase the 1980s active phase died while the 1960s plateaued for two years or so.
17:26:35 <Katie> Ryan(98), I'm appreciating your posts in GG - good info
17:29:57 <ynpvisitor999®> so do you reckon that this active phase is plateauing now?
17:33:28 <ynpvisitor65> Just stopping in for my circle fix
17:34:32 <LindaG> 😊
17:35:11 <ynpvisitor65> 80's would not have anything to do with a quake would it?
17:35:45 <Ryan(98)> Katie, thanks! Just compiling data!
17:36:00 <Ryan(98)> 999, no clue, I am not interpreting it beyond what I can blatantly see.
17:36:11 <Ryan(98)> 65, again no clue, not sure which earth quake you refer to.
17:37:06 <Katie> Ryan(98), I exported the data to csv and started to play in Excel earlier today and then went back to processing photos. You have compiled all the things I wanted to look at.
17:37:48 <Ryan(98)> :D
17:38:33 <Katie> I'm out for tonight. Have a good evening, all.
17:38:56 <Ryan(98)> Ngiht Katie
17:38:59 <Ryan(98)> Night Katei
17:39:05 <Ryan(98)> Night, Katie.
17:39:18 <Ryan(98)> Maybe I should call it too....
17:40:07 <ynpvisitor65> 83 borah peak comes to mind.
17:40:26 <ynpvisitor999®> #65, SB's 1980s active phase occurred before the 1983 Borah Peak EQ and well after the 1975 6.1 Norris EQ. 80s active phase was pretty much done for before the 1983 Borah Peak hit in October and does not seem to have any effect on it
17:40:49 <ynpvisitor999®> to have had any effect on SB*
17:41:16 <ynpvisitor65> Was asking. Can not do google docs.
17:41:51 <Ryan(98)> Thanks, 999. Even on the google docs it was taking me a bit to look up the dates. The sheet is really not user friendly lol
17:43:30 <ynpvisitor30> so the cam has not come back up since before 1600?
17:43:51 <ynpvisitor999®> to me it seems like the 1982-1983 SB active phase happened due to natural causes and was stopped due to natural causes (probably a couple of disturbances muffled it). 2018-ongoing active phase does seem to have begun due to natural causes, and it's still going strong. It is, however, theorized that the 1960s active phase was a delayed-response to 1959
17:44:56 <Ryan(98)> I think there is a bit more to it: 1960s, 1980s, (attempted) 2000s, 2018? There is a pretty regular 18 year or so cycle/
17:45:16 <ynpvisitor999®> I did notice that, Ryan
17:45:37 <Kevin L™🌵> That would be like the steam cycle in the dryer?
17:45:52 <ynpvisitor65> Interesting that the NPS says SB is not effected by quakes, yet says quakes help keep features gong by breaking up clogs.
17:46:10 <ynpvisitor999®> well, Norris is a very complex area
17:46:15 <Ryan(98)> There was a rumor, and mind you this is only a rumor who's source I have not directly talked to, that those dates line up with some kind of very larg period tidal cycle.
17:46:29 <ynpvisitor999®> that'd be rad
17:47:00 <ynpvisitor30> a rad rumor
17:47:23 <Ryan(98)> Which, upon thinking about it, I dont see why subterranean water reservoirs can't be affected by tides. And I can see a "tidal force"
17:48:10 <Ryan(98)> affecting the two reservoirs at norris in such a way that it lets SB erupt like it does.
17:48:33 <ynpvisitor65> Not tides per say, but what causes tides.
17:50:03 <ynpvisitor65> We are talking a bout a blink in SB history. Maybe it is regularly regular, and the last 100 years have been unusual?
17:50:59 <ynpvisitor65> Well, I had my circle x fix. Enjoy
17:51:25 <Cooper> hmm, I like that long turn tidal cycle ida
17:51:32 <Cooper> idea*
17:52:06 <ynpvisitor50> ugh this camera is never online
17:52:12 <ynpvisitor999®> well, there's one tidal cycle which corresponds to roughly to SB's active phases. It's named the 'Lunar node' and repeats approximately every 18.613 years according to Wikipedia
17:52:34 <Cooper> ynpvisitor999®, can you give me the link
17:53:00 <Ryan(98)> I have the wiki article but cant find the reference aha
17:56:03 <Ryan(98)>
17:56:25 <Cooper> thx Ryan
17:56:35 <Cooper> and 999 for finding it to start
17:57:27 <ynpvisitor999®> is the ref you're looking for. It's mentioned on page 9 and accompanied by a graph on the same page.
17:57:54 <Cooper> thank you
17:59:28 <Ryan(98)> I see it peaked around 1960.
17:59:59 <ynpvisitor999®> I doubt the lunar nodal has anything to do with SB, but on the other hand it could be one of the many small factors which contribute to an active phase
18:01:31 <Ryan(98)> If it happens again in 2036 I'll be hard pressed to argue against it.
18:02:14 <Ryan(98)> I think we can't say one way or the other. At the moment the evidence is circumstantial.
18:02:53 <ynpvisitor999®> I think we should just enjoy SB while we can, really
18:03:57 <Ryan(98)> I enjoy talking and analyzing. I like watching, too, but there is a lot to learn!
18:04:22 <ynpvisitor999®> indeed
18:05:03 <CraigC> science never even starts its process until people start wondering aloud
18:05:49 <Ryan(98)> What gets me, 999, is the shape of the plots of eruption rates through the phases.
18:06:19 <Ryan(98)> They have very similar shapes and if ours has the same shape then its suggesting something is causing SB to gradually ramp up in activity and then ramp down again.
18:06:30 <Ryan(98)> Theres no real abrupt starts and stops...
18:07:03 <Cooper> I wonder if in the future people will be able to predict steamboat, given the information discussed on this page, I hope they can
18:07:55 <Ryan(98)> Not sure it will ever be predictable. On a large or small scale. I think its too young and in too volatile of a setting.
18:08:19 <Cooper> I am talking about the cycles
18:08:26 <Cooper> not the eruptions
18:08:27 <Ryan(98)> Oh
18:08:35 <Ryan(98)> Thats what I meant by large scale
18:08:41 <Cooper> oh
18:08:55 <Ryan(98)> I have to go, later everyone. Sorry to cut out mid-talk :D
18:09:00 <Cooper> well if it happens in 2036 we will know
18:09:00 <ynpvisitor999®> Personally, even after that lunar nodal thingy, I'm leaning towards a graudual influx in heat and/or water which is available at SB (and in Norris in general) and then fluctuates during such a phase.
18:09:14 <Cooper> bye Ryan
18:09:46 <Ryan(98)> I think the heat and water are always there. The disturbances, which affect the mixing, or lack there of, of the two reservoirs wipe out eruptive potential.
18:10:25 <Cooper> it seems like something in Norris caused by science gives it some of the "stuff" for a phase, and then the nodal thingy helps give it the needed push
18:10:29 <Ryan(98)> I think SB is dependent upon a very specific structure between the two reservoirs. Disturbances, and possibly those cycles, can affect that structure.
18:11:26 <Cooper> there is clearly a very fragile balance between everything in relationship to SB
18:11:47 <Cooper> which causes it to go 50 years sometimes, and next think a cycle
18:11:54 <Ryan(98)> I dont see influxes of water lasting years at a time like that. In theory those water influxes would affect Mammoth too (Mammoth-Norris water connection)
18:13:26 <ynpvisitor999®> There's one thing for sure: Think you know Earth? Look below the surface and think again.
18:14:25 <Cooper> the only for sure explanation of SB's cycles, that is 100% accuracy is SCIENCE
18:15:16 <ynpvisitor999®> all this talk has horribly distracted me from the work I should've done today... woohoo
18:15:35 <Cooper> me too, YAY
18:18:13 <Cooper> I am off to go eat, bye everyone
18:25:07 <Kevin L™🌵> eat???? What is that?
18:26:09 <ynpvisitor999®> the act of chewing and swallowing (edible) objects
18:38:20 <ynpvisitor42> Cam still out?
18:39:16 <ynpvisitor42> Dirty word!
19:03:39 <Sam> Power outage? :(
19:04:15 <Sam> Start of OF?
19:05:07 <Sam> Nope loo
19:05:10 <Sam> Lol*
20:20:11 <Cooper> Good Luck with the "live streaming" cam, night
