01:30:49 <ynpvisitor57> Wow, lightning
05:23:34 <Joe> Aurum
06:32:35 <Kat> That's a lot of fog!
06:32:54 <KittyM> It sure is!
06:32:59 <Joe> Yes foggy all over
06:33:22 <Kat> Morning all!
06:34:20 <KittyM> Morning Kat and Joe!
06:34:41 <Joe> It has been nice until about 0615 or so
06:35:15 <Joe> Hi Kitty and Kat
06:35:40 <Joe> I almost typed KittyKat
06:35:52 <KittyM> haha :)
06:39:29 <Kat> I checked before I went for a walk. Walk did not go well. Thought a dog had been hit down the street - I ran and found a neighbor in full cardiac arrest. Did full CPR ( I'm a retired ER nurse) to no avail! I feel awful! I tried! I have his dog now until we contact family!
06:39:58 <Kat> Some days are just hard!!
06:40:56 <Joe> Thanks for making an attempt, many would have not,
06:44:42 <Kat> The "old " ER nurse kicked right in - "get out of my way"!!
06:45:05 <Joe> :)
06:45:23 <Kat> Probably lost Daisy to the fog.
06:45:41 <Kat> Why are we having issues so early?
06:45:54 <Joe> Yes I'm sure
06:46:42 <Joe> There have been random issues through the night
06:46:59 <KittyM> Oh no, Kat, I just read what happened to you and your neighbor!
06:47:07 <Kat> I'm covering Linda this morning. And Graham this evening.
06:47:31 <Kat> That's what happens in a retirement community!
06:47:42 <Joe> Nice long day for you
06:48:21 <Kat> Maybe someone will pick up this evening...haha
06:48:54 <Kat> Steaming Bee! That makes me smile! :)
06:50:00 <Kat> Clearng at OF
06:50:10 <Kat> clearing*
06:50:19 <Joe> I think I may be able to give you some relief this evening if you need it, let me know
06:51:23 <Kat> Thanks Joe! I've been awake since 2 AM also!
06:51:58 <Kat> I really like this view!
06:52:22 <KittyM> It looks a little like one of those old black and white photos
06:52:31 <Joe> OK I'll plan on covering Grahams shift for you
06:52:45 <Kat> Are you sure?
06:53:10 <Joe> Yes it is no problem
06:54:04 <Kat> Looks like Sprinkler!
06:54:25 <Kat> Thanks Joe -I really appreciate it! :)
06:55:57 <Kat> AL?
06:56:39 <Joe> Improbable?
06:56:54 <Kat> Can't really tell! LOL
06:57:51 <Joe> AL steaming in back
06:57:58 <Kat> :)
07:00:47 <Kat> Whoa! Rolling through!
07:06:03 <Kat> The static cams are all stuck on 6/25. ??
07:09:30 <KittyM> I believe static cams have been down since yesterday some time.
07:09:43 <KittyM> or the day before maybe? (lost track)
07:11:30 <Kat> Pretty sure the 2 have been offline since yesterday - but I didn't check the others. :)
07:12:10 <KittyM> Someone yesterday said the only one working was the lake
07:12:52 <KittyM> I see what you mean about 6/25
07:13:44 <Kat> :)
07:15:03 <Kat> That's a nice view - great light!
07:15:38 <KittyM> Yes it is
07:18:09 <KittyM> And getting prettier
07:19:12 <KittyM> I'm off for now, have a good morning, all.
07:20:11 <Kat> Bye Kitty! Have a great day!
07:27:37 <Kat> AL
07:28:49 <Joe> yes
07:35:45 <Kat> dancing spider webs again!
07:47:52 <Kat> Joe, need to step away for a minute!
07:48:21 <Joe> ok I'll cover till your back
08:04:31 <Joe> Daisy in ~ 15 min
08:07:24 <Joe> steam in F&M area
08:17:17 <ynpvisitor30> Daisy!
08:19:44 <Kat> I'm back Joe- thanks!
08:20:02 <Joe> YW
08:20:24 <Joe> just finished with Daisy
08:22:19 <Joe> Bulger
08:28:51 <Joe> Hi kevin
08:29:13 <Kat> Hey Kevin!
08:30:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning
08:31:11 <Joe> Kevin PM
08:31:15 <Kat> Splash!
08:33:45 <Joe> When things are due in different windows, it is like a Whack-A-Mole game :)
08:34:30 <Kat> So true!
08:35:11 <Kat> Looking like OF next!
08:36:39 <Joe> that is a window where the mole does not hide!
08:41:24 <Eric> Morning
08:41:47 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
08:41:55 <ynpvisitor999®> morning all. Giving SB a 65% chance on going within the next 6 hours, 75% chance in the next 12 hours and, well, 85%+ in the next 24 hours
08:42:00 <ynpvisitor100> That is a window the mole is safe from being whacked.
08:42:01 <Mike J> Greetings and salutations to all
08:42:07 <ynpvisitor999®> morning Mike
08:42:23 <ynpvisitor100> OF not SB prediction
08:43:58 <ynpvisitor999®> Giving a 65% chance on Grand going ~7h+ today
08:44:40 <Eric> I give 100% of webcam sucking right now!
08:45:02 <ynpvisitor100> giving odds on he cam staying up to see it?
08:45:11 <Eric> 0
08:45:24 <Kat> hahaha
08:46:01 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle probably @ 0915±15m
08:46:13 <Kat> sadly it's the control cam too today!
08:46:16 <ynpvisitor100> We need a congressional investigation on the cams. Sure it will take years, cost millions, and come to no conclusion, but we still need one.
08:46:52 <Joe> The 5H 56 min Grand last night surprised me
08:47:00 <ynpvisitor100> At least it could have froze in focus.
08:47:24 <ynpvisitor100> that is better
08:47:56 <ynpvisitor100> Kevin, how is the chicken business?
08:49:02 <Joe> cb is at Grand
08:49:48 <Eric> castle
08:49:59 <ynpvisitor999®> well, one prediction failure today ":P
08:50:33 <Eric> :-D
08:50:46 <Eric> You just need bigger window
08:50:57 <ynpvisitor100> Dang, I missed it.
08:51:28 <ynpvisitor999®> might become a minor, as in the past it seems that a short Castle interval has a higher chance of leading to a minor
08:52:45 <Eric> It looked pretty weak
08:52:56 <ynpvisitor100> Given Castle windows, is it that short?
08:53:07 <Katie> Good morning
08:53:19 <Eric> Morning Katie
08:53:23 <Joe> Does Rift have an effect on Grand anymore ?
08:53:30 <Eric> No
08:53:38 <Joe> thanks
08:53:41 <Kat> Hi Katie - love the pics you've posted!
08:53:50 <Katie> Static cams are still down, I see.
08:53:53 <ynpvisitor100> Just saw a add for Huckleberries. Good sales person, they are asking $50 a gallon.
08:53:55 <Katie> Thanks, Kat
08:54:25 <ynpvisitor999®> this interval is 13h09m, about 20 minutes shorter than the rough average of a major-major pair
08:54:25 <Kat> :)
08:55:36 <Joe> looking minor at this time
08:56:24 <Joe> BA and LA in frozen screen
08:58:01 <ynpvisitor999®> South ie
08:58:03 <Kat> Bubblers
08:58:23 <Kat> South bubblers
08:59:08 <Joe> so 3 to 4 hours?
08:59:28 <Kat> I e-mailed Dave about the static cams yesterday - he has National office looking into ti.
08:59:33 <Mike J> Has there been any real study of the bubblers as indicators?
09:02:34 <Kat> Seriously??
09:03:35 <Joe> KittB is at BEE so wwill get a start time if there is no cam
09:03:41 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion ini
09:04:32 <ynpvisitor46> What started
09:04:36 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
09:05:12 <ynpvisitor999®> quick pan to Castle maybe?
09:06:32 <Joe> Minor
09:07:33 <ynpvisitor999®> it seems like the works on the boardwalk have finished, at least from this view
09:08:26 <I Zinc So> Looks like Mr. Spider has been busy
09:09:04 <Eric> swinging by Grand and Bee on the way :-D
09:09:30 <Eric> Nice name today Jimbo :-D
09:10:41 <ynpvisitor100> A $20 bill slipped to the bell hops would get the web removed when they put the flags up.
09:11:06 <Joe> Three views makes me pull my hair out...oh! wait...I'm bald :)
09:11:30 <Kat> :lol:
09:16:35 <Kat> of
09:16:55 <Joe> I wonder if in basin will post castle as a minor or if we will have to lie to Gt again to get a prediction
09:17:30 <Joe> and will they make Lion an ini?
09:18:23 <Kat> Can't they check to see what the secondary posts are?
09:18:26 <I Zinc So> Hi Eric -- I thought so too >(
09:18:45 <Eric> I assume Kitt will mark castle major/minor when she sees it
09:19:27 <Joe> She will have to mark Lion ini also
09:19:31 <Kat> :thumbsup:
09:19:32 <Eric> mega entries on that Lion :-P
09:19:34 <I Zinc So> "I Zinc, therefore I am metallic" didn't fit
09:19:47 <Eric> :-D
09:19:58 <Eric> "I
09:20:00 <ynpvisitor999®> haha
09:20:19 <Kat> :lol:
09:20:23 <Eric> "I Zinc, therefore I am not Department of Interior Secretary anymore!" :-P
09:20:27 <Kevin L™🌵> But do you identify as sulfur?
09:20:32 <Eric> hahahaa
09:20:59 <Eric> Mineral neutral Kevin
09:21:25 <Eric> or maybe zinc sulfide
09:21:39 <Kat> All the wc Lion posts are at 0903.
09:21:57 <Eric> ZnSO4
09:22:30 <Joe> Castle posted as Minor
09:22:30 <Eric> It's Fine Kat...the secondary entries are there
09:22:57 <Kat> thanks Eric!
09:23:30 <Kat> LC
09:25:16 <Joe> We have an E time on our lost Daisy
09:25:43 <Joe> during OF
09:26:36 <Eric> Not sure I ever shared this after my trip...a nice pano of monument basin:
09:27:06 <Eric> If you have never seen it...checkout the cones on the right side of the image
09:28:18 <Kat> Great Joe! It was so foggy!
09:29:26 <Kat> Nice Eric!
09:29:50 <Joe> nice pano
09:30:33 <Kat> It's back !!!
09:33:19 <Joe> .
09:33:31 <Eric>'s a cool short hike up there.
09:35:19 <Mike J> Short hike, yes. Very cool, yes. Killer hike for someone who doesn't hike much, definitely
09:35:42 <Mike J> The first half is flat and easy. Second half, straight up. Thought I'd die. But, definitely worth it.
09:36:53 <Kat> splash!
09:40:08 <Eric> :-D
09:40:40 <Eric> My suggestion on really steep stuff like that is super short need to speed up that hill.
09:40:50 <Eric> I call it my low gear
09:41:21 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
09:42:04 <Mike J> My biggest problem is there is no air up there. Even slow and steady, I was having to take multiple breaks. "Just make it to the next switchback"
09:42:06 <Eric> looks like a major
09:42:11 <Mike J> A whole lot faster coming down.
09:42:24 <Mike J> But again, worth every step to see it.
09:42:36 <Kevin L™🌵> I did that one when I was younger and it was a lot of fun. Interesting formations. Surprised they haven't closed it.
09:42:59 <Eric> Yep, definitely less oxygen...not really many switchbacks on that trail, just straight up :-P
09:43:20 <Mike J> Maybe it was part of my oxygen-deprived hallucinations.
09:43:51 <Mike J> And Kevin, don't even mention closings. Someone might be listening and take you up on it.
09:45:04 <Katie> Kevin L™🌵, did some work at a client's house yesterday. You and he could probably talk for hours - he still does consulting for rr's from his home in his "mostly" retirement.
09:47:30 <Katie> they have been customers for 20 years or so - dialup, then DSL and we finally convinced them to move to wireless this week. And the new wi-fi router we installed turned out to either be a lemon (I suspect, it's already in the garbage) or underpowered for their house. Happy customer, now.
09:48:33 <Katie> That's sure a nice view right now
09:49:07 <Eric> bhi
09:49:18 <Eric> .
09:49:19 <Eric> .
09:49:19 <Eric> .
09:49:27 <Eric> In case someone isn't paying attention!
09:49:31 <Katie> Meanwhile, while I was at their house working on their wi-fi, the wife (79 years old) and her sister (86 years old), were taking a ride in the mountains in an area I roam frequently looking for photo ops and found a mountail lion. I was so jealous.
09:49:36 <Eric> Anyone send txt?
09:49:50 <Eric> Nice!
09:50:06 <Kat> I did
09:50:40 <ynpvisitor26> thanks for the text
09:51:13 <Eric> txt received :-D
09:51:20 <Eric> nooooo
09:51:28 <Kat> :)
09:51:37 <Kat> OMG!
09:51:41 <Eric> booo hiss
09:51:49 <Kevin L™🌵> FIX IT!
09:52:39 <KittyM> Terrible timing! :(
09:52:41 <sparekitty> heavy sign
09:52:45 <sparekitty> sigh, that is.
09:52:46 <Eric> static cams, streaming cams...nothing works in this park!
09:52:53 <Eric> up
09:52:53 <Katie> I think the cam knows when the text is sent
09:53:05 <Eric> no bh yet
09:53:10 <Eric> and down
09:53:13 <Eric> and up
09:54:23 <Kat> Holy you know what!!
09:55:23 <ynpvisitor999®> I am thoroughly displeased with this webcam's behaviour.
09:55:28 <Eric> Make someone do pushups every time the cam goes down!
09:55:49 <Eric> double the amount if BHI is going!
09:56:11 <Kat> long indy
09:57:24 <Eric> thankfully
09:57:34 <Eric> give us a shot of actually seeing BH
09:59:03 <Kat> Noooooo
09:59:22 <Kat> Kevin can I finish ythis?
09:59:28 <Kat> this*
09:59:47 <Kevin L™🌵> Yes. You have put in the time!
09:59:56 <Kat> :)
10:00:02 <Eric> and down
10:00:20 <Eric> don't finish it like that Kat!
10:00:32 <Eric> BH
10:00:52 <Kat> trying!!
10:01:28 <Eric> straight up BH
10:01:42 <ynpvisitor999®> those are usually the best
10:01:58 <Kat> Yeah!!!
10:02:00 <Eric> and a good crowd to watch
10:02:22 <Kat> Thanks Kevin!
10:02:59 <Kat> Eric - sent a second text..did you get it?
10:03:12 <Kat> Nice crowd!
10:03:16 <Eric> yes
10:03:29 <Eric> You don't need to send multiple
10:03:37 <Kat> OK
10:03:46 <Kat> Grand went....
10:03:47 <Eric> The BHI is more than enough for people who want to watch.
10:03:57 <Kat> :)
10:04:00 <Eric> Grand still ie I assume
10:04:29 <ynpvisitor47> We/ll never know
10:05:11 <Kat> Kevin it's all yours when it comes back up! Thanks!
10:05:26 <Kevin L™🌵> OK
10:05:49 <Kat> :) Joe - I'll check in with you later.
10:06:00 <Kat> There it is!!
10:06:10 <Eric> maybe we will catch a second
10:06:37 <Joe> OK Kat I do plan on it
10:07:30 <ynpvisitor107> So bubblers are no longer a 3 hour indy?
10:07:51 <ynpvisitor107> 999 will have to work on that one.
10:09:08 <Eric> and freeze
10:09:12 <Eric> oh well, meeting time
10:33:58 <Katie> Daisy IE
11:28:57 <ynpvisitor999®> Lion
11:29:27 <ynpvisitor999®> minor so far
11:32:25 <ynpvisitor999®> morning fishynp
11:33:59 <Eric> 24h+ of no YNP static webcams :-(
11:34:14 <Eric> ohh, I guess we still have Lake :-D
11:34:24 <Eric> Thanks YVO!
11:34:50 <Eric> Wish YVO could put a few more of those cell connected cameras in the basins
11:35:24 <Eric> Would be neat to have one over at mud volcano or at West Thumb
11:37:19 <ynpvisitor999®> a static pointing towards Steamboat would be nice, too
11:37:55 <Eric> Yes, but currently there is no cell service there.
11:37:57 <ynpvisitor73> too bad Grand and BH had to erupt at the same time today...
11:38:15 <Eric> Dave's fault 73
11:38:48 <Eric> BTW, has anyone heard from Dave? MIA since the wedding
11:42:12 <ynpvisitor73> what wedding? Did Taylor (his daughter) get married last weekend?
11:42:43 <ynpvisitor73> I thought they were coming to Yellowstone, the Dave from B family, this last week of June?
11:45:25 <Eric> I thought the wedding was this last
11:46:27 <ynpvisitor21> yes they are touring ynp - might see him at Steamboat'
11:47:09 <ynpvisitor73> I hope the wedding was nice. I can't remember what Billings weather was Saturday.
11:47:47 <ynpvisitor73> I thought the idea was to NOT go to SB this time
11:47:52 <Eric> ahh Nice! I hope they have a wonderful tour.
11:48:12 <ynpvisitor73> I know Roosevelt for a few days was in the scheme
11:48:13 <Eric> He did say they would stop and stay a little bit...but not get stuck there.
11:48:45 <ynpvisitor73> well tomorrow might be a good time to stop by
11:51:15 <Eric> or this evening
11:51:48 <Eric> I assume many people will be hanging out there this evening for a bit.
11:54:08 <Eric> So many hikes...not enough time to do them all :-D
11:54:35 <Eric> I need to quit my job so I can hike full time!
12:43:34 <Eric> shhh, be wery wery quiet...we are hunting gweysers...
12:46:53 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
12:52:08 <Kevin L™🌵>
13:00:20 <Eric> :-)
13:31:37 <Betty> hi sleepy guys
13:31:51 <Katie> Eric, do we still have to be quiet? I'm getting lonely...
13:31:59 <Kevin L™🌵> zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
13:32:07 <Katie> Oh! Hi Betty. :)
13:32:58 <Betty> sorry for ending your silence :-) hi Katie and Kevin L™🌵
13:38:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Silence is golden. We were hoping for Aurum
13:38:46 <ynpvisitor30> Betty, has it gotten above 30 yet?
13:39:11 <ynpvisitor30> Kevin, I di dnot know Aurum was in this view.
13:39:32 <Kevin L™🌵> I finally moved it
13:40:00 <I Zinc Not> You moved Aurum?
13:40:15 <Betty> it´s 2140 and still 32°C or 89°F
13:40:36 <ynpvisitor30> Just right for Kevin.
13:40:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Is your AC running?
13:41:06 <ynpvisitor30> Do they use AC there?
13:41:08 <I Zinc Not> Hey, I was in Las Vegas two days ago. 89 F is cool.
13:41:34 <Kevin L™🌵> AC in Germany = Windows open.
13:41:43 <Betty> What is an A/C ??? :(
13:41:57 <ynpvisitor30> I thought it was cold beer
13:42:09 <Kevin L™🌵> That too.
13:42:33 <Betty> to expensive to soak me with beer :-p
13:42:50 <ynpvisitor999®> evening Betty
13:42:57 <ynpvisitor30> That is what wine is good for.
13:43:10 <Betty> we had triple digits today in the town I work
13:43:22 <Betty> evening Jarno
13:43:41 <Kevin L™🌵> Penguin display at the Zoo.
13:43:41 <Betty> 103 °F
13:45:42 <ynpvisitor999®> closest thing that comes to airconditioning where I live, is having several fans run at top speed or use ice packs
13:45:44 <Kevin L™🌵> I haven't hit triples today. All next week it is supposed to be low 100s. That is the kind of Summer I like!
13:47:03 <Betty> you´re crazy
13:47:32 <ynpvisitor30> he has air
13:47:58 <Betty> true
13:47:59 <ynpvisitor30> I think the chickens have AC also.
13:48:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Considering it can get up up to 120, I will take this gladly.
13:48:27 <ynpvisitor30> Most chickens stop laying below 100.
13:48:36 <Joe> If not they will lay boiled eggs :)
13:49:01 <Kevin L™🌵> I usually mist them a bit.
13:49:26 <ynpvisitor30> Stop global warming, abandon vegas.
13:50:27 <ynpvisitor30> Time for lunch. Enjoy watching for hot water.
13:50:48 <ynpvisitor999®> cya #30
13:53:08 <Betty> enjoy, 30
13:58:14 <ynpvisitor999®> the boat's interval has surpassed the 3d mark
14:04:57 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Chancellor and Sam
14:05:00 <Sam> Abandon Vegas? I'm heading to Vegas tomorrow!
14:05:05 <Sam> Hi Jarno
14:05:25 <Sam> Still no statics I see
14:06:18 <Betty> hi Sm
14:06:31 <Betty> Sam
14:06:38 <Sam> Hi Betty
14:07:01 <Sam> Has anyone said why statics haven't updated since yesterday morning?
14:09:17 <Betty> today was hottest day for Germany ever in June since they record temperatures
14:11:26 <Sam> I have a couple of colleagues who are in Europe for a choir tour. They're currently in Paris and I think it got into the triple digits.
14:34:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Cam got a bad attitude.
14:34:31 <Cooper> Afternoon
14:34:39 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Cooper
14:34:41 <Betty> Coopers fault
14:34:52 <Cooper> that worked yesterday
14:35:05 <ynpvisitor999®> don't tell the cam!
14:35:16 <Betty> whooo
14:35:17 <Katie> Thank you, Cooper
14:35:25 <ynpvisitor999®> good game, Cooper...
14:35:27 <Cooper> worked again
14:35:31 <Cooper> :p
14:35:42 <Betty> Cooper is a magician
14:37:10 <Betty> I try to find a cool place to get some sleep. night all
14:37:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Good luck Betty
14:37:50 <Cooper> good luck, night
14:48:53 <ynpvisitor999®> what was that
14:49:00 <Cooper> were they cleaning the dome?
14:49:30 <ynpvisitor999®> guess so
14:49:33 <Cooper> Daisy soon
14:50:11 <Cooper> Castle
14:51:34 <Cooper> how do you do that?
14:51:40 <ynpvisitor999®> fine then, no 9 past intervals
14:52:19 <ynpvisitor999®> ./gts [geyser] [no. of intervals]
14:53:55 <ynpvisitor999®> that's SB with the last 10 intervals
14:54:32 <ynpvisitor999®> and this one with the last three super short intervals, so to say
14:54:49 <Cooper> I need to take a shower after fishing all day, bbl
14:55:03 <ynpvisitor999®> cya, caught anything by the way
14:55:06 <ynpvisitor999®> ?
14:55:44 <Eric> hopefully a castle major this time
14:55:46 <Cooper> Yes I caught either 12 or 13 in 5 hours of Kycak fishing, all troun, largest 19 inches
14:56:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice!
14:56:03 <Cooper> trout**
14:56:04 <Eric> so daisy in 6 minutes?
14:56:14 <ynpvisitor999®> sounds like a good run, Cooper. Enjoy your shower :)
14:56:19 <Eric> now 5 minutes
14:56:38 <ynpvisitor999®> well, Eric, that's what your tool says, so must be true :D
14:56:47 <Eric> looks like it
14:57:05 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger
14:57:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Nice pan sized Brookies sound great right now.
14:58:14 <Katie> Nice pan sized brookies always sound good.
14:59:09 <ynpvisitor999®> in Grand window now. May go ~7h+ this time around
15:02:28 <ynpvisitor999®> Daisy
15:02:29 <Kevin L™🌵> Daisy
15:02:45 <ynpvisitor999®> it's 1 minute late
15:02:50 <ynpvisitor999®> how terrible
15:02:52 <Eric> ohh, boo
15:03:08 <Eric> Nice Castle Daisy dual though :-D
15:03:23 <Eric> Looks like Castle will be a major
15:04:20 <ynpvisitor999®> still a very narrow window. OF, learn from Daisy, will ya?
15:08:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Castle major
15:08:58 <Eric> How about could take a lesson or two :-P
15:10:21 <ynpvisitor999®> you're very right in saying that. Though there's a geyser in that same vicinity which would be helped massively by taking lessons from Daisy
15:10:49 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger major
15:10:53 <ynpvisitor999®> afternoon Lori
15:10:56 <ynpvisitor92> 2 castles in one day. Next you are going to say SB will be later today.
15:11:05 <Lori S> Afternoon 999, all
15:11:14 <ynpvisitor999®> wouldn't be surprised, #92
15:11:33 <Katie> Well, the last Castle was a minor, but still...
15:11:39 <Lori S> bbev's GT note has caused me to wait until tomorrow night to head to Norris
15:12:03 <ynpvisitor999®> Aurum 1509 FRS
15:12:28 <Kevin L™🌵> Figures
15:13:03 <Lori S> May be a bad choice. But My boss, wife, and kid just left for there. I asked them to get me a video of whatever it's doing.
15:13:52 <ynpvisitor999®> Turban 1506
15:13:53 <Lori S> Just glad they finally left!
15:14:21 <ynpvisitor92> I thought it was only a bad coice to go to the park if you hit the entrance at say 9am.
15:15:00 <Lori S> NO, bad choice for me to NOT go tonight maybe
15:15:15 <Lori S> *No
15:15:25 <ynpvisitor999®> Bulger's Hole?
15:15:43 <ynpvisitor999®> I thought I saw two plume there
15:15:47 <ynpvisitor999®> plumes*
15:15:57 <ynpvisitor92> Someone needs to stay and mind the store while the boss is away.
15:17:20 <Lori S> 92, yep. But I meant after work. But I would have to ride my bike all the way across town to get our truck, then ride back home once I got back cuz Bob will have it at work when I get done.
15:18:07 <Lori S> Anyway, enough whining fro me...:p
15:18:13 <Lori S> *from
15:19:15 <Lori S> Thx for txt earlier for Bee. Got to see it and then Grand but boss was here so didn't stay on
15:19:23 <Cooper> Oh Hi Lori
15:19:33 <Lori S> Hi Cooper
15:19:33 <Cooper> grr missed an Aurum
15:20:02 <Lori S> So the static is down now?
15:20:34 <KittyM> Yes static is down, yesterday too
15:21:04 <Eric> All statics in the park service have been down since 9:50 yesterday
15:21:15 <Lori S> Oh my
15:21:15 <Eric> I think they have a server issue
15:21:17 <Kevin L™🌵> Cooper broke it
15:21:36 <Eric> Yep, YNP media stuff is falling apart
15:22:34 <Lori S> CenturyLink guy told me yesterday (while I watched him put in 1 routers) that a microwave will zap a router signal. But many of you proably already new that. :p
15:22:44 <Lori S> *2 routers
15:23:23 <Kevin L™🌵> You can never have too many routers.
15:24:02 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, We're upgrading form 4 to 9
15:24:23 <Lori S> 1 more install to go
15:29:35 <Lori S> I was present earlier while a convo occurred about Yellowstone. A very misinformed person was spouting off nonsense. Steam came out my ears and I think I finally got why Gazers in the know get cranky.
15:30:51 <Lori S> So I apologize to anyone if i have ever made steam come out your ears!
15:36:49 <Cooper> I see Dave made it to YNP
15:37:06 <Lori S> Cooper, :thumbsup:
15:40:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I wonder who is minding the store.
15:44:53 <Lori S> of
15:45:38 <ynpvisitor5> Lori S...:) :) :)
15:47:32 <Lori S> ynpvisitor5... :) :) :)
15:48:11 <ynpvisitor999®> Turban 1531 D0
15:48:55 <Lori S> What is the D0?
15:49:07 <ynpvisitor999®> Delay of 0 Turbans
15:49:27 <Lori S> As opposed to?
15:49:28 <ynpvisitor999®> aka there is a Turban-Turban interval of >= 25m
15:50:45 <Lori S> ynpvisitor999®, that took me a minute, but now I get it.
15:51:12 <ynpvisitor999®> I recall these delays to have an effect on Grand in the past, but these days it seems only Vent overflowing without Grand starting having an effect on Grand
15:51:45 <ynpvisitor999®> and Grand booping without going, too
15:52:41 <Lori S> Booping. Is that an official term? :p
15:53:09 <ynpvisitor999®> I don't know what to call it otherwise :D
15:53:21 <Lori S> Like roiling
15:53:22 <ynpvisitor999®> I guess splashing would do
15:53:28 <ynpvisitor999®> or that, Lori
15:53:53 <Lori S> No, booping is better than splashing
15:54:05 <Eric> Yes I am not sure what affect D0+ has on Grands
15:54:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds like a great technical term though.
15:55:48 <Joe> I will be driving the cam tonight for Graham/Kat, Whoopie!
15:56:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Might be worth a Grand!
15:56:43 <ynpvisitor999®> almost another Turban delay - 1555
15:56:55 <Joe> yes :) I hope :)
15:57:31 <Lori S> So, roiling is shy of splashing, and booping is between those two? :p
15:57:43 <ynpvisitor999®> think so
15:58:07 <ynpvisitor999®> I've at least seen it used a few times in Grand entries
15:58:10 <Lori S> :)
15:58:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Except on Tuesday afternoons....
15:58:30 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, LOL
16:00:12 <Joe> it is easier when JimS shouts 'waves on Grand" and everyone stands anf watches Grand erupt
16:00:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Controls are released Joe
16:00:38 <Joe> Thanks Kevin
16:06:28 <Cooper> D-1 With Gran
16:06:31 <Cooper> d
16:09:15 <Eric> Think anyone would notice if I used one of these at Steamboat?
16:10:13 <Joe> no, no one would :)
16:10:30 <Cooper> Why would they, you are camoflauged. :lol:
16:10:38 <Eric> So true
16:11:04 <Kevin L™🌵> I could have used that a few times this week.
16:11:44 <Lori S> You could just sit on it the whole time and not need a camp chair
16:11:47 <Joe> They would watching a pile of dirt with a hole in it, not yoy :)
16:11:59 <Joe> you*
16:12:37 <Lori S> ...or a hat
16:17:17 <LindaG> Hi all
16:17:45 <Cooper> Hey Linda
16:17:53 <Lori S> Hi Linda
16:17:55 <Cooper> Grand waited just for you
16:17:55 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
16:18:03 <Lori S> :)
16:18:17 <LindaG> Lori S, hi
16:18:34 <LindaG> Wow look at that
16:20:42 <ynpvisitor999®> D2/---
16:20:56 <ynpvisitor999®> D2/G--
16:23:24 <Lori S> Eric, you know, that privy thing actually makes sense for gazing in many ways. Blocks out sun, keeps out skeeters, keeps you dry if raining, and keeps people from bothering you. Plus its intended function.
16:24:15 <Joe> where to buy it
16:25:56 <ynpvisitor999®> 2nd?
16:25:56 <Kat> Hi Linda! Joe took Grahams time for me this evening.. Thank you Joe!
16:26:22 <Joe> Yw Kat
16:27:06 <LindaG> Kat, hi

16:28:16 <ynpvisitor999®> well, evening Linda and Kat then :)
16:28:47 <Lori S> Howdy works in all time zones.
16:28:51 <Kat> No problem. I'll send you a message it was a good distraction - and a good morning on the cam!
16:28:54 <ynpvisitor999®> b1/2 done
16:29:01 <LindaG> Lori S, lol
16:29:03 <Kat> LOL 999
16:30:05 <ynpvisitor999®> D2/G-Q
16:30:18 <ynpvisitor999®> might be D2/G2*Q
16:30:33 <Cooper> ynpvisitor999®, agreed
16:31:16 <Lori S> Joe,
16:31:17 <Kat> Lori- so right Howdeee!
16:31:49 <Lori S> Howdee Kat!
16:31:58 <Kat> :lol:
16:32:17 <Kat> LMAO - I needed that!
16:32:17 <Joe> Ths Lori
16:32:22 <LindaG> Hoooowwww deeeeee
16:32:37 <ynpvisitor999®> guess Grand faked me out - D2/G1Q
16:32:39 <Kat> That's even better Linda!
16:33:06 <Kat> Faked out - Oh No! :)
16:33:27 <Kat> bbl
16:34:06 <Joe> That would be handy for handicapped people on a road trip
16:34:08 <Cooper> c ya
16:34:47 <Eric> I might get it if they made the cover in the shape of a bison
16:34:53 <Lori S> By-eeee Kat
16:35:50 <Eric> Something like this I could sit in:
16:36:00 <LindaG> Eric, donkey head would be cool
16:36:01 <Joe> No more dirty outhouses in the park
16:38:49 <Eric> Ohh, one of these:
16:39:55 <LindaG> 😊
16:40:04 <Eric>
16:40:07 <Eric> Better video
16:40:33 <Cooper> I like that
16:40:35 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
16:40:40 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
16:41:00 <LindaG> 😊
16:48:55 <Joe> 70 deg 28% rh might not see Rside
16:49:36 <Joe> someone saw it
17:20:24 <Lori S> of
17:27:38 <ynpvisitor999®> I'm off for today. Enjoy down basin view.
17:28:22 <Cooper> Bye Jarno
17:28:23 <Lori S> ynpvisitor999®, Ciao
17:41:53 <Lori S> I look away to eat a burger and Cooper is beating up the cam. LOL
17:42:38 <Cooper> well clearly if I yell at it, and then smack it in my mind it listens, LOL
17:42:50 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
18:21:07 <Jake> I'm here for the Steamboat eruption
18:21:37 <LindaG> Jake, hi
18:21:54 <Cooper> Hi Jake, what do you mean here for the SB eruption?
18:23:17 <Jake> just making small talk
18:23:34 <Cooper> when do you think its gonna go
18:23:44 <Jake> kind of a joke because the cam can't see Steamboat but it might erupt on another short interval and we'll all get to talk about it
18:24:16 <LindaG> Cistern is full right?
18:24:27 <Cooper> And overflowing in all directions
18:24:28 <Jake> now to 48 hours from now
18:25:04 <LindaG> So tell me the relationship between cistern and steamboat
18:25:04 <Lori S> Nasty lightning storm rolling in here in west. Steamboat loves bad weather.
18:25:28 <Lori S> *Not a proven theory or even based on fact
18:25:48 <Lori S> :)
18:25:49 <Jake> I've been away from monitoring all geyser activity the last week so I don't know much
18:25:51 <Joe> ‹Jake› "I'm here for the Steamboat eruption" Reminded me of Gretchen Wilson " I'm here for the party" :)
18:26:05 <Lori S> Joe, :thumbsup:
18:26:25 <Jake> the relationship is when Steamboat erupts, Cistern is full
18:26:38 <Jake> Cistern empties during the SB eruption and refills
18:26:42 <Lori S> There's a relationship between Cistern and Steamboat? Did they meet on
18:27:06 <Cooper> haha Lori :thumbsup:
18:27:10 <Jake> lots of talk of quick refills of late. what took 3, 4 days last year is now 2 days to refill and with it have come shorter SB intervals
18:27:40 <Lori S> We have hail. Big hail.
18:27:50 <LindaG> Lori S, wow
18:28:36 <Cooper> COS is getting hammered too, Coordinated Attack of Weather?
18:28:40 <LindaG> Where is cistern In relation to steamboat?
18:29:01 <Jake> based on my experience with other geysers, having a quick refill is a good sign for a short interval but not a guarantee by any means
18:29:13 <Jake> Cistern is downhill and maybe 60 yards away from SB
18:29:17 <Lori S>
18:30:22 <Cooper> Lori S. likely for that storm, and according to DBZ it is going to get worse before it gets better
18:30:30 <Cooper> at least most likely
18:30:40 <Joe> Good one Lori
18:30:43 <Lori S> A guy just ran by the office to his cabin and said "Ow."
18:31:04 <Cooper> LOL
18:31:13 <Lori S> Should we put up a barricade and close our lot? ;)
18:32:03 <Lori S> I have to walk home in 30 minutes. EEK
18:32:23 <Cooper> Peoples Car Windows are going to get smashed, if it does not change direction, looks like 1 inch hail
18:33:38 <Lori S> Cooper, Holy crap on a cracker.
18:33:56 <Lori S> My boss is at Norris. :)
18:34:41 <Cooper> thats bad, Norris is looking like it is worse than where you are
18:35:08 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT :p
18:35:34 <Cooper> It sometimes likes bad weather :p
18:37:01 <Lori S> Cooper, I heard that somewhere too. :p
18:38:03 <Cooper> YAY, The Storm Changed Direction, and the worst of it is going to go somewhere withing 2 miles of Norris, GO STEAMOBAT
18:38:17 <Lori S> BBev's note this morning suggests it could be a 4 day interval at least.
18:38:32 <Lori S> At least that's what I took out of that
18:39:10 <LindaG> Sky looks pretty dark to the left
18:43:04 <Lori S> The 2 day drain and refill really suggested a less than 4 day interval based on the notes before the 6/15 SB, but Bill's note suggested otherwose
18:43:16 <Lori S> ...this monring
18:45:48 <LindaG> OF
18:48:20 <Lori S> Closing up the office. Have a good night all. GO SB!
18:48:44 <ynpvisitor18> i more SB and there will be 200 on GT back to 1911
18:48:50 <LindaG> Lori S, goodnight, be careful out there
18:48:59 <Lori S> ynpvisitor18, cool
18:49:16 <Lori S> Thx Linda. The hail quit so I'm gonna jog. :)
18:49:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> enjoy that Linda
18:49:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> i mean Lori
18:51:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks for covering my shift Joe
18:52:39 <Joe> Yw Graham
18:52:51 <LindaG> I can do it too Joe if you need a break
18:53:32 <Joe> I'm good, Linda, thanks
18:53:42 <LindaG> 👍
18:54:58 <Joe> You can help by pressing the geyser start buttons close to the prediction time ;)
18:55:25 <Joe> /
18:56:07 <LindaG> 😊 I'll do my best
18:56:40 <LindaG> I'll cheer steamboat on also.
18:58:25 <LindaG> I'm not doing g a very good job 😔
18:59:45 <ynpvisitor95> This just in from the boss: We watched an active steamboat. Thought a couple times it would erupt!
19:00:18 <Cooper> Is that you Lori?
19:00:44 <ynpvisitor95> From someone who is green, but goid to hear. Oh, this is Lori s :)
19:01:31 <Lori S> He reports they watched for 1.5 hours
19:02:03 <LindaG> So slu is close
19:02:21 <LindaG> So sounds close to eruption
19:02:59 <Lori S> Go Cooper
19:03:00 <Joe> it sounds like an after dark SB eruption is eminent, unless Dave from B is there
19:03:23 <Lori S> Hehe Joe, well time to jog home
19:03:33 <Cooper> BAD CAM, BAD CAM, BAD CAM
19:03:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> Crag might be there as Daves surrogate
19:03:44 <Cooper> GOOD CAM, GOOD CAM, GOOD CAM.

19:26:12 <Cooper> Someone posted a fake SB
19:26:14 <ynpvisitor64> That account doesn't show flag deleted eruptions though, maybe he deleted it himself
19:26:23 <Cooper> Username: DeepElements
19:26:58 <Lori S> Oh geez. Get everyone all excited for nuthin
19:27:19 <Cooper> Yup, had me refreshing the seismo

20:21:02 <Sam> Hey Lori
20:25:07 <Sam2> I always like seeing Doublet Pool notes
20:25:13 <Sam2> Usually just "thumping"
20:25:54 <ynpvisitor23> Because I can’t find out what’s happening in the real world
20:27:29 <Lori S> ynpvisitor23, the real world is highly overrated

20:36:47 <Lori S> OH, gotcha
20:37:28 <Lori S> That's one long state to drive across. LOL
20:38:59 <Lori S> A rather trippy view with the spider web
20:39:27 <Sam2> It is! But it's pretty once you west of the river
20:39:44 <Joe> reminds me of times long gone :)
20:39:49 <Sam2> Especially around the Wall area. Then you're in the Black Hills

20:43:29 <Sam2> Joe, do you know anything about the static cams being down?
20:43:49 <Joe> no, I do not
20:44:23 <Sam2> Strange. The only one updating is the lake
