04:47:09 <Joe> It has been in and out a few times tonight
04:47:45 <CraigC> bummer
04:51:07 <Joe> I think the pole hit knocked it out of focus,, I have not had good focus tonight
04:56:59 <CraigC> is marmot cave erupting?
04:57:09 <CraigC> or depression
04:57:35 <CraigC> I'm usually not here this early, not good at this low lighting
04:58:13 <Joe> That is good focus
04:58:18 <CraigC> MC looks like it but I am not sure
04:59:16 <CraigC> hey Rice

05:17:53 <CraigC> ha, I put thick socks on and shut my window
05:19:14 <Joe> They told us not to show the parking lights in this view, I guess the public does not like it

07:57:23 <Kat> :lol:
07:57:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Styrofoam melts here.
07:57:41 <Kat> Looks like his scarf maybe holding hime upright!

08:02:20 <CraigC> LA?
08:02:23 <CraigC> AL?
08:02:39 <Kevin L™🌵> I have to run out to the depot. That could trigger Aurum.
08:02:44 <Joe> Do you think there are some homless living on washburn?
08:04:23 <LindaG> Feeling stupid, staring at x. Didnt realize cam was up. I wonder how long I was staring. Lol

08:29:32 <CraigC> invisible
08:31:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Gave it an extra chance. Wind blew the wire off the antenna on the depot yesterday. Had to take it down and connect things back up.
08:32:08 <CraigC> similar to cam fate
08:43:38 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, I was just trying to encourage aurum
08:44:58 <LindaG> Maybe arty is brewing?
08:45:50 <LindaG> Or over
08:49:58 <CraigC> OT
08:51:43 <CraigC> daisy
08:57:55 <CraigC> possible Aurum, but iffy;
08:58:22 <CraigC> looks like a big cartoon ghost
09:00:44 <LindaG> Has anyone seen Bee recently?
09:01:33 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't think it has shown since the cam went down
09:02:13 <LindaG> 21h 30 min. Soon I guess
09:03:24 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, going anywhere next couple of hours? 😉

09:30:09 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all, afternoon Betty
09:30:12 <CraigC> hey Jarno
09:30:15 <Betty> evening Jarno
09:30:25 <Kat> Hi Jarno
09:31:07 <CraigC> AL?
09:31:19 <CraigC> ughhh
09:31:32 <Kat> No.....

09:33:20 <ynpvisitor999®> splash splash splash
09:38:52 <Betty> LC ie
09:39:01 <Dave from B™> Dunraven is now open
09:39:03 <Kat> :)
09:40:47 <ynpvisitor38> Where is Logbridge?
09:41:17 <LindaG> ynpvisitor999®, hi
09:41:55 <CraigC> ynpvisitor38, in what context?
09:42:24 <ynpvisitor999®> most likely the geyser
09:42:47 <Betty> BA
09:42:54 <LindaG> So artemesia was doing something
09:43:20 <CraigC> google; white creek group
09:43:36 <ynpvisitor14> White Creek area ynpvisitor38
09:44:00 <ynpvisitor38> Thanks, found it
09:44:05 <CraigC> Logbridge Geyser is the southwesternmost geyser on the field, quite close to the road. The namegiving logs over White Creek have all but disappeared. Logbridge has been described as frequently active, but intervals have increased into the range of days to weeks in the last years.
09:44:49 <CraigC> cool, had never heard of it before
09:45:34 <ynpvisitor38> There have been some posts of it erupting recently

10:07:20 <ynpvisitor38> 36 degrees...Happy Summer all
10:07:24 <LindaGp> Oh no
10:07:24 <Eric> Cam fails before BH
10:07:36 <Betty> ohhh Eric
10:07:38 <Eric> Snowman on Washburn too
10:08:07 <LindaGp> Uh oh I'm still streaming
10:08:15 <Eric> Cam resumes
10:08:20 <LindaGp> Pixelcaster problem I'll send email
10:09:44 <Betty> LC
10:11:23 <LindaGp> Backup
10:11:28 <Betty> they predict 3 digits temps for us next week :-(
10:11:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow.
10:11:59 <Betty> not very happy about that
10:12:45 <Kevin L™🌵> 3 digits no biggie for me but it is for you!
10:13:51 <ynpvisitor38> What, cam still fails?
10:14:19 <ynpvisitor91> Betty in the park?
10:14:24 <ynpvisitor38> Are they ever going to fix it?
10:14:29 <LindaGp> Cam disnt but public streaming did
10:14:48 <LindaGp> Public streaming is provider problem
10:14:51 <Betty> no
10:14:57 <Betty> I´m not
10:15:14 <ynpvisitor38> So weird. We never had issues with old cam
10:15:18 <ynpvisitor91> Your bubbler entry has me asking. No wc
10:15:39 <ynpvisitor38> It’s a NOTE
10:15:59 <Betty> cannot enter wc with a note
10:16:18 <ynpvisitor38> Geez
10:16:18 <LindaGp> Splashes
10:16:38 <ynpvisitor91> Someoe should fix that
10:17:31 <ynpvisitor38> Don’t understand why it’s a big deal
10:18:07 <ynpvisitor91> Cause it sounds like the person making the note was there.
10:18:08 <ynpvisitor38> Betty, it’s going to be 100 in Germany?
10:18:23 <Betty> I changed in observer field :-)
10:18:32 <Betty> yes, 38 :-(
10:18:36 <ynpvisitor91> That is where water boils isn't it?
10:19:03 <ynpvisitor38> Sorry to hear that
10:19:12 <Betty> no, water boils at 100°C, not 100°F
10:19:14 <LindaGp> Betty, , yeah you guys aren't prepared for that
10:19:55 <LindaGp> Hope bee goes before Or after OF
10:21:23 <Betty> Plume would look so pretty with this view
10:22:14 <LindaGp> Is that ba?
10:22:26 <Joe> no
10:22:46 <LindaGp> So that's improbale?
10:22:47 <Betty> improbable
10:22:56 <Joe> BA closer to BW
10:23:03 <LindaGp> Ok
10:23:45 <Joe> to the right and near be LA is right of BA
10:24:03 <Joe> be=bw
10:25:29 <LindaGp> Splash
10:25:49 <Eric> A watched pot never boils :-D
10:26:02 <LindaGp> I know hehe
10:26:17 <Betty> it should not boil, it should erupt
10:26:24 <Kat> Well eventually it does hahaha
10:26:35 <Betty> Depression is hot
10:27:53 <LindaGp> Marmot cave
10:27:54 <Betty> boil
10:28:45 <Betty> good splash
10:28:48 <Joe> Bee is at ~23 hours, so as soon as Kevin goes to feed the chickens, be a good scout and Bee prepared
10:28:57 <LindaGp> Saw a splash
10:29:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice Depression
10:29:14 <Joe> splash and runoff
10:29:16 <Betty> yes
10:29:42 <LindaGp> Slowing down
10:31:15 <LindaGp> Let me know Kevin so I'm prepared
10:32:05 <LindaGp> OF in 4 mins
10:32:19 <LindaGp> Be splash
10:32:26 <LindaGp> *bee
10:33:06 <LindaGp> Don't know if well see indy on static anymore
10:33:24 <Joe> Well I'll be the sacrifice, bye
10:34:02 <Kat> Bye Joe
10:34:27 <Eric> Bye Joe
10:34:31 <LindaGp> Joe, bye
10:34:32 <Eric> We won't Linda
10:34:41 <Eric> Not until they fix the static camera
10:34:53 <Betty> bye Joe
10:36:55 <LindaGp> Its a race!
10:39:59 <LindaGp> I miss seeing bee and OF erupt in the same fram
10:40:07 <LindaGp> *frame
10:45:38 <LindaGp> GEEZ
10:47:49 <Eric> should have OF any second
10:48:21 <Eric> I see casper the friendly cacoon is still holding on
10:48:58 <LindaGp> 😊
10:49:34 <Casey> Waht is on the dome?
10:49:41 <Eric> I hope we don't have a dual :-(
10:49:52 <Eric> Casper
10:49:57 <LindaGp> Me too
10:51:04 <Casey> Looks more like a flying squirrel to me (or one of those base jumping wingsuits).
10:52:01 <LindaGp> Guy got stuck in of web lol
10:52:53 <Eric> and ant was base jumping in his white wingsuit and didn't realize there was a dome!
10:53:13 <Eric> Splat!
10:53:24 <ynpvisitor58> If it’s there permanently it will not be so fun
10:53:32 <LindaGp> It happens
10:53:38 <Eric> It will be there forever!
10:53:53 <ynpvisitor58> It’s inside, right?
10:53:55 <LindaGp> Good snowstorm will take web out
10:54:11 <Eric> Not sure 58...but that would be my guess
10:54:14 <LindaGp> No bee hold on
10:54:29 <ynpvisitor58> It won’t get inside Linda
10:54:35 <Eric> 102m on OF :-(
10:54:46 <LindaGp> Inthink there is a web we can't see
10:55:20 <Eric> I wish they would have cleaned the dome when they were fixing the cam!
10:55:32 <LindaGp> Ifninside well have a pretty moth to look at
10:55:35 <ynpvisitor58> Me too
10:56:01 <Eric> They had to be on the roof anyway...seems like a nobrainer
10:56:07 <Eric> oh well
10:56:15 <ynpvisitor58> So this view we cannot see BH or OF
10:56:29 <Eric> OF is struggling
10:56:42 <LindaGp> When Of goes I will switch to it
10:57:00 <LindaGp> It struggled last night too
10:57:19 <Eric> I can see OF cone
10:57:25 <ynpvisitor58> What’s the point if we can’t see BH?
10:57:52 <Eric> I bet we would see if indy is going...wind is correct direction
10:58:33 <LindaGp> Ok ill go to OF
10:58:35 <ynpvisitor39> Someone must have fixed the presets? I thought we could see it before.
10:58:59 <ynpvisitor58> Me too 39, now we can’t
10:59:00 <Eric> OF
10:59:15 <Eric> or not
10:59:16 <Casey> AmI delayed or were you tricked by preplay?
10:59:22 <Casey> aaah
10:59:24 <Casey> It happens
10:59:29 <Eric> That was extended preplay
10:59:50 <Eric> It was erupting for at least 5 seconds
10:59:58 <LindaGp> OF broken?
11:00:01 <Casey> What chaos would occur if we posted an OF minor?
11:00:08 <Eric> wonder if this will stall it out for another 15 minutes
11:00:35 <Eric> no chaos...but people would frown at you :-P
11:00:52 <Casey> Don't worry, I'll list you as the observer
11:01:04 <Eric> Thanks...frowns for me too
11:01:27 <Eric> longest OF in last 50
11:01:41 <Eric> actually, longest in last 100
11:02:02 <Eric> 2 more minutes and it will be longest in last 200
11:02:25 <Casey> OF actually erupts in cycles. We are currently observing the end of a cycle that has been going for 150 years.
11:02:37 <LindaGp> Oh heck ill go to OF can't show bee anyway if they go together
11:02:38 <Eric> :-D
11:03:19 <LindaGp> Someone out there will post bee, hopefully
11:03:29 <Casey> I'll keep an eye on static for Indy
11:03:35 <LindaGp> Ok
11:04:15 <Eric> Longest in last 200...but to get to 300 we have to break 2h
11:05:11 <Eric> I kinda want it to stall out for another 7 minutes :-D
11:05:14 <Casey> That preplay certainly does seem to have taken some of its energy
11:05:45 <Eric> 2h interval is kind of a cool mark
11:06:12 <Eric> I think something broke on the washburn tower
11:06:20 <LindaGp> Last night it really had a hard time getting to full eruption
11:06:41 <Eric> well it's at 114m
11:07:44 <Dave from B™> The eruption was only 5 seconds
11:07:56 <Eric> That was it's minor :-D
11:08:08 <Eric> 116m
11:08:09 <Dave from B™> I think that was the eruption:D
11:08:39 <LindaGp> Sad
11:09:23 <Eric> come on...hold off OF
11:09:31 <Dave from B™> WE just witnessed a major change in OF:)
11:09:40 <Casey> There was either a blind person or a sighted person with sun glasses and a walking stick on static. Would be a shame to not be able to see geysers, but Yellowstone would still be awesome with just the other 4 senses.
11:10:11 <LindaGp> How long do i wait?
11:10:13 <Eric> Yep...yellowstone can be heard, smelled and touched.
11:10:24 <Eric> It will go in the next 2 minutes
11:10:46 <Kat> How very different!
11:10:59 <Kat> I'm with Eric....
11:10:59 <Eric> Yep...2h intervals are pretty rare
11:11:19 <Eric> come on...hold off OF for 1 more minute
11:11:20 <LindaGp> Kat, did you break OF this morning?😉
11:11:38 <Eric> It might be a rocket start....
11:11:52 <Eric> or OF is dormant!
11:12:01 <Kat> I'll let you know soon! :p
11:12:09 <Eric> 2h!
11:12:11 <Sam> 2 hours!
11:12:17 <Eric> OF
11:12:26 <Casey> There we go
11:12:27 <Sam> I’ve never seen jt
11:12:44 <Sam> It*
11:12:49 <Kat> No - i didn't break it!:)
11:13:11 <LindaGp> Kat, 👍
11:13:19 <Eric> It went in almost exactly 2 minutes :-D
11:13:21 <LindaGp> Wow powerful
11:13:48 <Kat> :)
11:13:57 <LindaGp> We have cocoons up there too
11:14:48 <Betty> Aurum
11:14:52 <ynpvisitor58> Nice OF!
11:15:01 <Eric> Yep
11:15:06 <Eric> Good catch betty
11:15:34 <Eric> short?
11:15:56 <Kat> long I think
11:15:58 <Casey> Right at 3m it looked like
11:16:00 <LindaGp> Enough of OF I think
11:16:06 <Casey> Maybe 3m10
11:16:17 <Eric> isn't 3:30 long?
11:16:48 <Kat> I was told over 3 minutes
11:17:05 <Casey> I've heard debate about how to handle the 3-3:30 range. Apparently it is unusual to have durations in that range.
11:17:11 <Eric> ohh, you are probably right...I forget that kind of stuff
11:18:07 <LindaGp> Nice of bee to wait
11:18:50 <LindaGp> Any more exact time on daisy?
11:19:10 <LindaGp> So we don't miss bee
11:20:50 <Kat> I think Daisy will go before BEe
11:21:04 <Kat> But then what do I know... hehehe
11:22:07 <Casey> Scott's book uses 2m and 4.5m eruptions as his examples of short and long eruption durations along with the expected following interval. Interesting he didn't even come close to defining the line.
11:22:32 <Cooper> Hows Bee?
11:22:46 <Cooper> Any improvment from 0959 note?
11:22:50 <Casey> Suffering from performance anxiety
11:24:38 <LindaGp> That bug has got to go
11:25:27 <LindaGp> Wow look at all that green
11:25:47 <LindaGp> So does bee trump grand?
11:25:48 <Cooper> what happened to the blizzard yesterday
11:26:24 <Eric> only if bhi is active
11:26:35 <LindaGp> All gone, just a snow squall I think
11:26:51 <Eric> I think Daisy any moment
11:27:01 <Eric> or we missed it already...
11:27:32 <Eric> Missed it is probably more likely
11:27:43 <LindaGp> Don't want to hold this view too long
11:28:47 <kc> was that Grotto start?
11:28:54 <ynpvisitor39> Grotto looks happy
11:28:56 <Betty> LC
11:28:59 <LindaGp> Crowd gathering at bee
11:29:15 <LindaGp> Frozen
11:29:23 <ynpvisitor39> x timne
11:29:40 <kc> just noticed I misspelled my name this morning.
11:29:46 <ynpvisitor39> enjoy the static view
11:30:35 <Cooper> up
11:31:08 <LindaGp> Bee splash
11:31:41 <lc> Riverside had a 4h 45m interval. I can't remember interval that short.
11:32:13 <LindaGp> So i guess our problem isnt fixed
11:32:49 <Kat> Nope, looks like it's not :(
11:43:12 <ynpvisitor95> Riverside interval might be a bit longer than that since the previous one was ie.
11:43:50 <ynpvisitor112> BH could take a while
11:44:30 <ynpvisitor112> or not, nice splash
11:45:14 <LindaGp> Small south bubbler i think
11:46:18 <LindaGp> Hard to tell
11:46:33 <LindaGp> Castle
11:47:34 <LindaGp> Its a hopping around day
11:48:00 <LindaGp> Could have only started 5 minutes ago
11:49:55 <ynpvisitor112> lots of steam at 40 degrees
11:53:43 <LindaGp> Bulger
11:58:46 <LindaGp> Indy
11:58:53 <Eric> Hopefully Luke will give us a Turban soon
11:58:58 <LindaGp> Nope
11:58:59 <Eric> Nope
11:59:05 <Eric> South bubbler strong
11:59:06 <LindaGp> Bubbler
11:59:26 <Eric> It's really not a bubbler's a geyser IMHO
11:59:42 <LindaGp> It's gonna go
11:59:51 <Eric> That is some powerful Bee Burps
12:00:11 <Kevin L™🌵> HW splash
12:00:18 <LindaGp> Indy now
12:00:20 <Eric> More than that even Kevin
12:00:35 <Betty> woot
12:00:40 <Eric> BHI
12:00:53 <Eric> Indy before BH :-D
12:01:23 <LindaGp> Yay we win
12:01:33 <Betty> you won
12:01:42 <LindaGp> Question is what? Hehe
12:02:45 <Eric> Free BHI viewing :-D
12:02:50 <Casey> We all win
12:03:04 <ynpvisitor36> not on GT, it isnt happening
12:03:34 <Eric>'s not, look the other way!
12:03:50 <Eric> or disconnect now!
12:04:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats what Dave did :)
12:04:34 <Casey> Wow GO STEAMBOAT. I didn't expect that negativity from you
12:04:43 <Eric> hahahaha
12:05:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> who me, who woulda thunk it
12:05:05 <Eric> Mr. loves false indy :-P
12:05:11 <Casey> I was expecting ynpvisitor36 to make a comment anonymously then disappear
12:05:18 <Kevin L™🌵> We could get a BH Aurum dual now.
12:05:19 <Casey> You manned up and IDed yourself
12:05:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> i could say its about time we had a false indicator to shake things up in the UGB ... but someone wouldnt like it
12:05:51 <Eric> Aurum just went :-(
12:06:09 <Casey> BHI Pump dual right now
12:06:13 <LindaGp> Bummer
12:06:26 <Eric> During the marathon OF interval
12:07:02 <LindaGp> Everybody's going to get wet
12:07:13 <Eric> Not me
12:07:20 <LindaGp> Tall indy
12:07:23 <Eric> I have a poncho on
12:07:31 <Betty> you making up some friends Graham :-p
12:07:38 <Casey> Nice balmy 40F too. Great weather for an outdoor shower.
12:07:52 <Eric> Doesn't everyone wear a poncho while watching the webcam?
12:08:02 <Betty> lol
12:08:15 <Kevin L™🌵> I was just looking at the line of sight Eric. It would be fun to see both BH and Aurum in the same frame
12:08:16 <Eric> It really brings the experience to life!
12:08:26 <Casey> That and watching Gallagher on YouTube
12:08:42 <Eric> BH
12:08:53 <Casey> Boom
12:09:00 <LindaGp> Nice
12:09:10 <Casey> Don't look Graham
12:09:24 <Eric> :bee:
12:09:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> Bh
12:09:45 <Betty> guys off walkway on bottom
12:09:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> you can thank me for waking it up right after I arrived
12:10:11 <LindaGp> A nice sight
12:11:21 <Eric> cannot see BHI on static now
12:11:34 <Dave from B™> a geyser
12:11:44 <Casey> Really? When did the static cam move?
12:11:44 <Eric> Even a nice tall one like that
12:11:56 <Eric> Pence screwed it up
12:12:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> i can see it
12:12:18 <Eric> Not the first thing he has screwed up either :-P
12:12:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> big white curtain
12:12:27 <Eric> That is not BHI
12:12:52 <LindaGp> Bee is obvious on static at least
12:12:58 <Casey> I heard he was going to single-handedly solve National Park budgeting issues on that trip
12:13:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah, wasnt waching for BhI
12:13:05 <Eric> As long as we have this wind direction
12:13:24 <Eric> If the wind was the other way...I doubt you would see anything from BH
12:14:16 <Betty> that was a nice BH
12:14:49 <Betty> BH 8 min after BHI
12:15:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> has cam been well behaved today?
12:15:06 <Casey> Castle
12:15:28 <LindaGp> It's gone down a few times, not terrible
12:15:30 <Betty> ie since 1145
12:15:43 <LindaGp> Castle started a while ago
12:15:56 <ynpvisitor92> Obama did not get the park 500 million dollars behind in maintenance did he? It only happened in the last 3 years?
12:15:57 <Eric> snow
12:15:59 <LindaGp> Snow
12:16:01 <Casey> Oh. I see that now. Oops
12:16:11 <Eric> Pence broke the static cam
12:16:11 <Casey> I'm going to break my rule and say something political. (I blame you Eric.) Intelligent people can disagree on any number of political topics, but I really struggle respecting Pence's decision to associate with Trump.
12:16:52 <Eric> Mine is not political...pence broke it. He was doing work in the UGB and when he finished, it was broken.
12:17:14 <LindaGp> Casey froze the cam
12:17:14 <Eric> and failed
12:17:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think NPS maintenance backlog has been growing for many years
12:17:28 <Casey> I made a political comment and it broke the cam
12:17:32 <LindaGp> ;it grand hasnt go e yet so that's good
12:17:40 <Casey> I knew there was I reason I had that rule.
12:18:49 <Eric> I don't blame any president for the NPS backlogs...congress - democrats and republicans have not funded the parks adequately over the last 50 years IMHO!
12:19:24 <Eric> But now it's their budget is being reduced by another 14%! So adding insult to injury
12:19:47 <Casey> But we're going to the moon!
12:19:58 <Eric> Space Force!
12:20:34 <Casey> Is it not reasonable for all of us to enjoy earth a little less so a few more people can walk on the moon?
12:22:37 <ynpvisitor112> hard to believe there was no in basin BH time today
12:22:57 <LindaGp> I think major on castle agree?
12:23:11 <Casey> Everyone at Grand I guess
12:23:25 <Eric> Yes...I think so Linda
12:23:58 <Eric> grand in 5 minutes would be about right
12:24:08 <Eric> or now!
12:24:09 <Eric> grand
12:24:15 <Betty> riverside
12:25:29 <Eric> William and Luke are down at Grand at least
12:27:27 <LindaGp> Looks like we got everything except for daisy. And there'll be another one of those
12:28:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
12:29:03 <ynpvisitor999®> oh, lol
12:30:04 <LindaGp> And Aurum ☹
12:31:35 <Dave from B™> Still an outside chance for 5 Grands today
12:31:41 <CraigC> so was this the previous Aurum before the last one;
12:33:03 <CraigC> forget that, it would have been too short of interval
12:33:17 <Kevin L™🌵> FYI regarding backlog, how many of you know there is a MINIMUM you can pay contractors who work Federal jobs (not a Trump idea BTW)? Examples in Nevada: Flagger $53.09 hr, Basic Laborer $54.59 hr, Vehicle greaser $72.48. Need I say more?
12:33:46 <Eric> Yep, it's called prevailing wage
12:34:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Only prevail on Federal Jobs
12:35:24 <Eric> $30-$40 per hour here in Washington state
12:35:41 <Eric> $30 if you are new, $40 if you are a journeyman flagger :-P
12:36:19 <CraigC> plus full health and retirement benefits?
12:36:49 <Eric> I don't think these rates include benefit
12:36:53 <Eric> Just payscale
12:37:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Here is the full listing for Vegas:
12:37:48 <Eric> Also very specific overtimes rates as well
12:38:39 <Eric> I guess flagging is hazardous duty...fence erectors make less than $20/hour
12:41:06 <LindaGp> Olaf is looking dapper! Has a little sun on him. He'll be leaving soon
12:41:54 <LindaGp> OF
12:42:35 <Eric> Yes, the blue tape scarf is a nice touch
12:43:58 <LindaGp> He looks good against dark background
12:54:20 <LindaGp> Lion's tryin
13:05:40 <Dave from B™> I think Olaf looks a little flush to me
13:06:00 <Betty> slush?
13:06:42 <LindaGp> Lol he looks like the perfect yellowstone guardian up there
13:08:18 <LindaGp> Quite a few cars at west
13:14:26 <Betty> Aurum
13:15:00 <Casey> Nice
13:15:15 <Betty> 2h interval??
13:15:19 <LindaGp> Thx betty
13:15:30 <Betty> but it looked as clear as the other
13:15:34 <Kevin L™🌵> :p
13:16:12 <LindaGp> I can see it on static
13:16:27 <LindaGp> And obviously you did
13:16:52 <Betty> but I meant the earlier one
13:17:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Who is driving?
13:17:13 <LindaGp> Me
13:17:20 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm not sure if others saw it, but yesterday Boardwalk was reported gurgling @ 1852
13:17:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Have they adjusted presets?
13:17:44 <LindaGp> Yes
13:18:09 <Eric> That is definitely Aurum
13:18:45 <Eric> I am not %100 on the other one you reported Betty, it could have been pump
13:19:23 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, OF was a littlw odd, seemed to overshoot to right and then move left to cone
13:19:52 <Kevin L™🌵> They weren't even close yesterday.
13:20:00 <Eric> This is the best static shot of the earlier one:
13:20:14 <LindaGp> Not sure when he adjusted but I've been using them
13:20:55 <Betty> I think I´ll delete the older one
13:21:03 <Kevin L™🌵> The BH closeup was to the left of scissors
13:21:24 <LindaGp> Ifrozen
13:21:55 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, that's a problem, it's fine today
13:22:22 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder if he simply adjusted the default degree offset of the cam, assuming that it'll fix it
13:23:07 <Eric> I agree Betty
13:23:55 <LindaGp> Bulger
13:24:24 <Eric> basin now to confirm Aurum
13:24:51 <Eric> long bulger
13:25:22 <LindaGp> Craig is lurking
13:26:03 <LindaGp> Unless that's another Craig that entered bulger
13:26:15 <Betty> it´s another
13:26:32 <Eric> Lots of Craigs :-D
13:26:40 <LindaGp> Ah
13:27:09 <Eric> Hopefully we can catch this daisy
13:27:20 <CraigC> Craig M that was here a few days ago chatting
13:27:33 <Eric> daisy
13:27:35 <Eric> I think
13:27:41 <Eric> yep
13:27:42 <LindaGp> CraigC, oh see you were lurking
13:27:51 <LindaGp> Daisy
13:27:52 <CraigC> I am trying to figure out how to open some files that were emailed to me
13:28:06 <Dave from B™> WEll, I'm out of here for today. Wedding setup. Have a great evening everyone!
13:28:09 <Joe> DAISY
13:28:11 <Eric> double click on them
13:28:20 <Eric> Good luck Dave and congrats!
13:28:33 <Dave from B™> Thanks
13:28:33 <CraigC> LOL @ double click...
13:28:34 <Kevin L™🌵> Craig is the one in the corner wearing a trenchcoat.
13:29:05 <Betty> enjoy the celebrations, Dave :-) and send greetings from me :-)
13:29:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Have fun Dave. Keep an eye out for deer, mailboxes, and rocks.
13:29:22 <CraigC> one was a Microsoft Office file, so I had to dl a free program to extract that one, 2 were PDFs, but 3 I have no idea
13:29:34 <ynpvisitor999®> SB note says that full seating is available at lower deck. Cistern overflowing in all directions, some activity from both vents. As it stands, not really too much to get excited over.
13:29:53 <ynpvisitor999®> other than the lower deck situation I guess
13:30:04 <Eric> Famous picture of Portland's mayor wearing a trenchcoat and flashing a nude statue :-D
13:30:14 <Eric> Trenchcoats always make me think of that
13:30:28 <Eric> The Tagline is: Expose yourself to Art
13:30:29 <Betty> or Columbo
13:30:34 <CraigC> LOL
13:31:31 <LindaGp> Love Columbo
13:35:05 <LindaGp> Window washers on Washburn fire lookout
13:35:19 <LindaGp> 😉
13:37:02 <Eric> ahh, thats what that thing was all morning
13:37:14 <Eric> You sure it's windows...not construction?
13:37:29 <Eric> I think they can do windows without a bucket lift :-D
13:37:55 <LindaGp> Lol I don't know what it is.
13:38:43 <ynpvisitor30> Why would they barricade 14” from railing?
13:38:50 <ynpvisitor30> Nutty
13:40:28 <GO STEAMBOAT> probably because the projectile didn't go that far
13:40:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> so far its the outlier
13:41:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> good to open some access up there
13:41:54 <LindaGp> What are you guys talking about?
13:42:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> read the SB note
13:42:06 <Casey> Maybe if you weren't yelling at Steamboat to "GO" it wouldn't be so violent
13:42:27 <LindaGp> Oh steamboat
13:42:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> they have reduced the middle deck closure to just a small amount so seating is allowed again
13:42:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> i wasnt even there :(
13:43:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> but I would have been yelling :)
13:43:13 <LindaGp> GO STEAMBOAT, oh come on you did it 😉
13:44:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> what fun is that? thats what it has done for years. i like Monster SB
13:45:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats better .... dont confuse the geyser
13:46:20 <Casey> I am one of those weird people that doesn't believe geysers care what my name is on here.
13:47:39 <ynpvisitor999®> might want to have a lookout for Churn now that Spasmodic has quit
13:48:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> so you dont mind being responsible if SB quits?
13:48:44 <CraigC> GO SAWMILL
13:49:42 <LindaGp> Joe brought down the flag pole
13:52:30 <Joe> Yes I did, guilty as charged!
13:52:53 <ynpvisitor999®> where's Churn actually located approximately?
13:52:56 <LindaGp>
13:53:22 <Joe> Where that person is
13:53:33 <ynpvisitor999®> ah, thanks :)
13:53:47 <Joe> steaming now
13:53:52 <LindaGp> Above sprinkler
13:55:57 <LindaGp> Arty steam maybe
13:56:11 <Joe> yes
13:57:26 <ynpvisitor999®> I wonder how fast Churn heats up while Spasmodic is inactive
14:01:48 <LindaGp> OF 3 mins
14:02:26 <LindaGp> Sprinkler
14:04:13 <LindaGp> Getting steamier
14:05:00 <Joe> but last look spas was active again
14:05:22 <ynpvisitor1> is there a bench at Churn? Looks like they are sitting
14:05:42 <ynpvisitor43> of window?
14:05:48 <ynpvisitor1> guess they are on bw sitting
14:05:57 <LindaGp> Yup
14:05:59 <ynpvisitor43> n bench at Chrn
14:06:02 <ynpvisitor43> no
14:06:10 <ynpvisitor999®> was that Lion ie?
14:06:37 <ynpvisitor43> Luke says Churn has been near the end of the Spasmodic quiet cycle, not at the beginning
14:06:58 <ynpvisitor999®> guess I must've seen Giantess steam then :P
14:09:05 <ynpvisitor1> note on SB sounds like it may be a longer interval this time
14:17:35 <LindaGp> OF
14:18:09 <Joe> Hi JSJ, still in the park?
14:18:40 <JSJ> Got home 2 nights ago.
14:18:52 <JSJ> Will be back for the 1st two weeks of August.
14:19:06 <JSJ> Bagged some new geysers, but didn't catch others, despite trying.
14:19:43 <JSJ> For geyser video fans, I've put up a couple new ones already.
14:19:45 <JSJ> Slide Geyser
14:19:45 <JSJ>
14:19:56 <Joe> thanks!!
14:19:58 <JSJ> And Bulger's Hole Geyser.
14:19:59 <JSJ>
14:22:38 <LindaGp> Lion ie
14:23:15 <ynpvisitor999®> well, I guess I was right about Lion, but just a couple of minutes too early :)
14:23:19 <Betty> wow, both look great
14:23:25 <Joe> nice bulgers hole I like the thermAL IMAGE
14:23:29 <LindaGp> I guess its an ini
14:24:18 <Joe> thermal image*
14:24:26 <JSJ> I found a new gap in the trees this year for filming Slide Geyser from the Daisy Trail. It's further away, but less obscured.
14:25:48 <JSJ> Broken Cone and Solstice are coming fairly soon, video-wise.
14:26:12 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm excited about Solstice
14:26:12 <JSJ> Never noticed Broken Cone before this year, but it's completely visible from the Daisy Trail.
14:26:34 <JSJ> I filmed solstice on 1 June in the evening, when Steamboat was going.
14:26:50 <LindaGp> JSJ, nice audio also
14:26:56 <JSJ> Also tried in daytime sunlight, but a constant parade of tourists made it . . . difficult.
14:27:40 <JSJ> No Fungoid this trip. It's beginning to tick me off.
14:28:04 <JSJ> Couldn't get Grove either.
14:28:08 <JSJ> Or North Goggles.
14:28:16 <CraigC> both cool videos
14:28:22 <JSJ> Gotta love geyser watching!
14:29:01 <CraigC> marmot cave
14:29:08 <Joe> it is fun, I whish I could get more time in the park
14:29:25 <Joe> wish*
14:29:34 <LindaGp> That is bulger in background of bulger hole?
14:29:48 <JSJ> Yes - Bulger Geyser.
14:29:59 <JSJ> FYI, there are descriptive captions below each video.
14:32:15 <ynpvisitor999®> I like how the Hole is chugging along with Bulger
14:33:09 <JSJ> I liked the double splash sound each burst made.
14:33:26 <JSJ> Each burst hit the underside of the undercut ledge.
14:33:56 <ynpvisitor999®> really? Didn't notice that on video, other than the occasional rock that appears
14:34:09 <JSJ> Oh - here's stills & video clips of the snowstorm from early June.
14:34:10 <JSJ>
14:36:21 <LindaGp> Nice snowstirm
14:36:30 <ynpvisitor999®> Churn surge?
14:37:10 <Eric> Nice hole video JSJ!
14:37:45 <JSJ> Tried to get Churn this trip, but got nuttin'.
14:37:55 <ynpvisitor999®> can we go back to Churn if possible? Nothing on the Hill looks due at the moment
14:38:03 <JSJ> Waiting for Churn is what got me Bulger's Hole, along with Graham, so that's good.
14:38:21 <ynpvisitor43> lc
14:38:25 <LindaGp> lc ie
14:38:47 <Eric> Yep, I waited a few evenings out there....I got quite a few bulgers, but no hole :-(
14:38:58 <CraigC> we saw the B Hole on this cam that Graham suggested we watch for
14:39:20 <JSJ> Waiting for Churn isn't too boring. Can watch Bulger and Old Tardy, and an occasional Grand.
14:39:53 <Eric> everything is awesome when you have been sitting at SB for multiple days :-P
14:40:02 <JSJ> I'm not convinced that Churn is only performing during a Spasmodic recovery, but I'm not sure.
14:40:05 <JSJ> Agreed.
14:40:13 <JSJ> I only waited 1 day and 2 hours in 2018 for Steamboat.
14:40:18 <JSJ> The 1 day was gruesome.
14:40:51 <Eric> You get any morning eruptions JSJ?
14:41:17 <JSJ> That's another thing I didn't get this visit. Morning went before I arrived & after I left. Figures.
14:41:30 <JSJ> I spent a fair amount of time at the Fountain overlook platform.
14:41:39 <JSJ> It was enjoyable there, however.
14:41:50 <JSJ> Get to watch 3 groups simultaneously.
14:42:21 <JSJ> Saw "Reverse Firehose" 3 times.
14:42:22 <Eric> oh for sure...I sat out there a few days. Love it
14:42:29 <JSJ> And Graham's "Peanut Butter".
14:42:47 <Eric> Yep...we got a bunch of reverse fire hoses and Graham's Hole :-D
14:42:51 <JSJ> It's really FTN-7. It wasn't erupting the last 1 or 2 years, but it's back at it again.
14:43:18 <Eric> Yep...I was there for the TScott discussion, glad we got coordinated on it
14:43:29 <JSJ> Reverse Firehose is actually in the Angle complex. Probably UNNG vent 4 of Wolf & Paperiello (1989).
14:43:48 <Eric> It's a really cool geyser
14:43:50 <JSJ> FTN-7 was having low eruptions from 2 vents before 1 or 2 years ago.
14:43:58 <JSJ> Now it's erupting from 1 vent.
14:44:02 <Eric> Yes, now it is really booming
14:44:05 <GO STEAMBOAT> even tho Scott describes it as 2 features in his book
14:44:13 <Eric> interesting
14:44:13 <JSJ> It has wimpy (minor) eruptions and larger ("major") eruptions.
14:44:22 <JSJ> All brief - less than 30 seconds.
14:44:57 <JSJ> Reverse Firehose was impressive - I got 3 videos of it.
14:45:06 <JSJ> It'll get posted to youtube eventually.
14:45:25 <Eric> We were counting time by kaleidoscopes :-P
14:45:45 <Eric> Not sure how many we had that day...maybe 13?
14:46:27 <JSJ> Logger data and geyser watcher reports indicate that Kaleidoscope alternates from having ~regular eruptions, to dormancies.
14:46:35 <JSJ> I saw a post-dormancy recovery last week.
14:46:48 <JSJ> Very non-tall eruptions at erratic intervals, and lots of blipping from the vent.
14:47:15 <Eric> Interesting...our were pretty much like clockwork
14:47:19 <JSJ> Never saw Kaleidoscope act that way before.
14:47:33 <JSJ> But when it's going, you're right - pretty good time keeper.
14:47:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> byw - UNNG-FTN-7 has been logged each of the last 4 years
14:48:06 <JSJ> Haven't seen or heard about where the data is posted.
14:48:18 <Eric> ohh, interesting....that Jeff's logger?
14:48:20 <JSJ> If it's the same feature I've been watching.
14:48:35 <LindaGp> Storm moving in
14:48:36 <JSJ> Not sure if Jeff logged FTN-7. I think he was out that way, however.
14:49:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> Kaleidoscope has been actve for a while, by dormancy do you mean series?
14:49:37 <LindaGp> Sasquatch
14:49:55 <JSJ> Yes - it's quiet between "series".
14:50:24 <Eric> quiet or erratic?
14:50:24 <JSJ> Jeff's logger data kinda showed that a couple years ago.
14:50:43 <JSJ> All I know is that I saw Kaleidoscope in June doing 3 different things.
14:50:47 <JSJ> 1) Having regular, tall eruptions.
14:50:53 <JSJ> 2) Doing nothing for very long stretches of time.
14:51:09 <JSJ> 3) Doing not-tall eruptions, sometimes well over a minute long, at erratic intervals.
14:51:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> 100 eruptions logged since 2 June
14:51:41 <JSJ> It's a way-fun geyser to watch.
14:52:26 <LindaGp> Looks like a funnel cloud
14:52:30 <JSJ> This is what FTN-7 was doing in 2016.
14:52:30 <JSJ>
14:52:31 <Betty> looks like a tornado
14:52:43 <JSJ> In 2017 and 2018, I saw no full eruptions from FTN-7.
14:52:47 <LindaGp> It does
14:52:51 <JSJ> But it's back again, in a modified way.
14:53:13 <Eric> We had 23 kaleisoscopes logged on 5/30
14:53:18 <LindaGp> Maybe heavy rain
14:54:18 <ynpvisitor999®> now if that possible tornado will move in in such a way it downs a specific row of trees between Riverside and Grand...
14:54:23 <Eric> Wow...that is a great zoom you have on that camera!
14:54:44 <Betty> yep, only rain
14:54:51 <Eric> We got a geyser funnel cloud too JSJ, coming off Blue
14:55:06 <Eric> I don't think anyone got video though :-(
14:55:40 <ynpvisitor999®> how's Churn looking?
14:56:49 <ynpvisitor999®> still steaming, so that's good I think
14:56:56 <JSJ> I've seen a couple fantastic steamnados over the years - one over Three Sisters and one at Labial.
14:57:07 <JSJ> Saw a good dust devil near Old Faithful a couple years ago.
14:58:58 <Eric> Amazing to see all that steam swept up in a spinner like that
14:59:30 <Eric> Looks like Luke and William camped out at churn :-D
14:59:57 <JSJ> Luke's bagged quite a few Churns this season.
15:01:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> i hope that means its overflowing in all 3 channels
15:01:26 <LindaGp> Wave to luke and william
15:02:10 <ynpvisitor999®> and they left it seems
15:02:11 <LindaGp> Eric, we spooked them
15:03:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe it dropped, or work calls
15:04:34 <Eric> Maybe heading up to norris for the evening
15:05:33 <Eric> I hope luke can get up there for an eruption this summer!
15:07:11 <LindaGp> Little a
15:08:01 <GO STEAMBOAT> dal
15:08:02 <ynpvisitor999®> AL & AB
15:08:14 <LindaGp> And big a
15:08:17 <GO STEAMBOAT> or dual
15:09:00 <Betty> BLA - Big&Little Anemone
15:09:15 <Eric> earthquake!
15:09:37 <ynpvisitor999®> how about BLAD - Big & Little Anemone Dual?
15:09:53 <Eric> or just anemone dual
15:09:59 <LindaGp> ynpvisitor999®, 😊
15:10:01 <Eric> AD
15:10:42 <LindaGp> Haven't seen LS lately
15:11:01 <Eric> or DAD Dramatic Anemone Dual
15:11:50 <ynpvisitor999®> well, I wouldn't call it dramatic... Maybe if the Anemone's little-known brother pops up - Anemone-Middle
15:14:24 <ynpvisitor999®> Sponge action
15:15:05 <LindaGp> That's sponge straight ahead?
15:15:23 <ynpvisitor999®> it's that cone in front of the boardwalk
15:15:40 <LindaGp> Ok
15:16:09 <ynpvisitor999®> some more Sponge action
15:17:05 <ynpvisitor999®> to me Sponge's cone looks a bit like Beehive's
15:29:47 <ynpvisitor999®> cam's on the choppy side of things for me
15:30:19 <LindaGp> Gary has cam
15:34:01 <ynpvisitor28> Not sure why old faithful
15:34:37 <LindaG> Have a good night all
15:34:46 <Kevin L™🌵> Night
15:35:32 <Eric> night
15:41:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> Lion
15:54:27 <ynpvisitor999®> LGB times are in
15:56:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> William has been busy
16:03:13 <ynpvisitor999®> OF's pulling a long one
16:04:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Old cam getting slimed.
16:04:58 <ynpvisitor999®> column's got quite an angle to it
16:05:32 <Betty> people get a shower
16:09:48 <ynpvisitor999®> and rain moving in
16:10:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> people moving faster now
16:10:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> snow
16:13:38 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy area looks quiet. Likely went during mandatory Fluffball cam time
16:14:44 <ynpvisitor999®> didn't the NPS predict Daisy with a 40m window and Grand with a 90 or 60m window?
16:18:11 <Eric> Yep, William ran out to Fountain
16:18:28 <Eric> Got an HV and Kaleidoscope
16:19:26 <ynpvisitor999®> and here we go again...
16:33:27 <ynpvisitor38> Aurum?
16:33:40 <ynpvisitor999®> nope
16:34:37 <Eric> should have a lion in a few
16:43:41 <Eric> lion time
16:43:58 <Eric> or might have already missed it
16:59:14 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion 1651 min
17:07:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> William is back checking Artemisia
17:16:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> where did the hills go?
17:27:19 <ynpvisitor38> Wow
17:31:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> of
17:32:06 <ynpvisitor999®> 46°F and snow... Guess that's realistic in Yellowstone
17:35:16 <Kat> Wow, that's crazy - just like last night!!
17:37:10 <ynpvisitor999®> it should become warmer as the days progress
17:37:19 <ynpvisitor999®> that's what the forecast tells me at least
17:38:40 <ynpvisitor999®> presumably it will be highs between 70 to 75 for a large portion of next week
17:54:27 <ynpvisitor999®> looks like it'll become a steamy night
18:03:46 <ynpvisitor999®> Riverside
18:16:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> bulger
