00:00:01 <Michael> Sounds like a really nice night for them.
00:01:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Speaking of night, time for bed.
00:02:17 <Michael> Night, KevinL.
00:10:05 <ynpvisitor69> 20 min since last Turban
00:23:35 <Michael> OF ie
00:38:12 <ynpvisitor38> Grand
01:18:36 <ynpvisitor83>
01:43:59 <ynpvisitor18> Yeah! Steamboat went yesterday evening
03:47:54 <ynpvisitor54> Only 5 minutes of SB noted before full steam. Seismo trace is 5 minutes too, at start.
03:49:48 <ynpvisitor54> Heavy breathing, and huffing. That’s a different description from past SBs.
03:51:10 <ynpvisitor54> Creek flow shows a nice spike so there must have been some water in that huffing.
04:54:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> wow it did it again!
04:56:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> 63 in the series, 50 in 12 months again (chance for record 51 before 22nd), and 31 this year
04:57:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> mean dropped 4h41m to 134d21h28m and median stayed the same at 9d7h20m
04:58:30 <Rice (-3)> Morning Guys
04:58:43 <CraigC> ha, I told my gf last night that I had a feeling it was going within the day
04:58:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> i wonder what the activity looked like yesterday
04:58:54 <CraigC> hey Graham
04:59:01 <CraigC> hey Rice, welcome back
04:59:07 <Rice (-3)> Nice to see the first thing back from Vacation is Steamboat Talk.
04:59:24 <GO STEAMBOAT> morning. Well that might change the LD plans .. haha
04:59:42 <Rice (-3)> I was back at work yeterday, but too damn busy to log on.
05:00:01 <CraigC> Rice (-3), how many miles?
05:00:09 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats no fun. did you have a good trip?
05:00:40 <Rice (-3)> 8025.5 miles, 168.28 hrs in car.
05:00:57 <CraigC> wow
05:01:05 <Rice (-3)> Yea we had a great trip, amazing places we have in this country.
05:01:21 <Rice (-3)> One Flat tire on camper, 2 hrs from home last day.
05:02:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> i am guessing thats no fun
05:02:36 <Rice (-3)> I still think Zion Canyon is my favorite, after Yelowstone.
05:03:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> its my favorite canyon park
05:04:00 <Rice (-3)> Yosemite was not at all what I expected, crowded, confusing, and from the valley you couldnt really get a feel for the park.
05:04:13 <CraigC> some day you guys will have to rent some Jeeps and let me give you some directions for Canyonlands
05:04:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> :thumbsup:
05:05:05 <Rice (-3)> We spent an afternoon in Canyonlands, it was 104, so we didnt do much but sight see from car.
05:05:34 <Rice (-3)> It was 119 at the Death Valley Visitor Center, that is my personal heat Record.
05:05:40 <CraigC> yeah, the jeep trails are where the beauty is.... Shaffer Trail to Musselman Arch, over Pucker Pass
05:06:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> Yosemite can be tough, but if you stay in the valley you get the quiet morning and evening times. like being in YNP only more congested, i have not been there peak season tho
05:07:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> Yosemite in winter is one of my goals
05:07:33 <Rice (-3)> With Yosemite, I expected to be able to see up and down the valley, and be able to look around, but the trees blocks everything. We got to Glacier Point, that pulled it all together.
05:07:59 <CraigC> I haven't ever been there. Yet
05:09:07 <Rice (-3)> Of the 9 NP we did, Yosemite was towards the bottom, it was amazing, but I am not in a hurry to go back.
05:09:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> Tunnel View is a good spot to get the feel for it. Walking out into the meadow in the middle helps too
05:10:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> Late May is probably the best time, midweek. lots of water in the falls, schools not out yet, and avoiding the weekend rush
05:11:06 <Rice (-3)> We didnt get to tunnel view till the 3rd day. And by then I was getting tired.
05:11:10 <GO STEAMBOAT> last tie i was there Mem Day week - not too bad if you do the early and late day activities and dont try and do too much during the day, like Yellowstone
05:12:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think i had 4 nights there starting mem day. crowds noticably died down on Tuesday
05:12:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> used the shuttle busses t get arund mostly.
05:12:58 <Rice (-3)> People Camping were very interesting, they move right in, 2 uhaul trailers, grandma, friends, kids, bikes, multiple sites.
05:15:20 <ynpvisitor95> morning, 28 cam failures per hour, a little over an hour ago I gave up and put it on OF and took a nap, I see OF has not erupted yet
05:15:38 <Rice (-3)> Anyway it was a great trip, I think my kids enjoyed it, I know I did.
05:16:31 <Rice (-3)> Oh yea and 119 is hot, I dont care about that Dry Heat Bullshit.
05:17:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> where did you stay when you went to DV?
05:18:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> I was in DV in March one year, temps werent bad, highs in the 90s but windy, i guess thats normal there
05:19:07 <Rice (-3)> Just Drove Through Death Valley for the day, didnt stay. Overheated the van climbing mountain to leave.
05:19:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> i bet
05:19:59 <Rice (-3)> I would like to go back in the Winter, there were places we would have like to get out and see, but not in that heat.
05:21:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> its an amazing park. i managed th see the superbloom a few years ago, that was nice seeing some flower color in the valley
05:21:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> you need good fall rain to get the big blooms early in the next year
05:22:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> they happen every 5 to 10 years or so
05:22:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> I see Grand didnt get 5 in yesterday. Maybe today?
05:23:24 <CraigC> hey Joe
05:28:08 <ynpvisitor95> Hi Craig Graham and Rice
05:33:44 <ynpvisitor95> OF may have erupted sometime i put the cam on it at 0343, there have been some 6 minute periods of down time since, if not then very soon
05:35:20 <ynpvisitor95> I missed one or two as I could not get control to get there
05:40:07 <ynpvisitor95> All Eric"s machine has time to show is webcam recovering:) has
05:41:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> next SB, 11 days
05:41:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> so Sat 24th
05:42:27 <ynpvisitor95> is that when you arrive?
05:42:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh, even better, during my cam shift
05:42:48 <ynpvisitor95> :)
05:42:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> haha, the next interval will be 8 days, day after i arrive
05:43:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> and then 5 days befoer i leave
05:43:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> i have them al lplanned out
05:50:28 <ynpvisitor95> now we can use the static cam for OF
06:00:06 <ynpvisitor95> Finally managed to gain control
06:00:22 <ynpvisitor95> for a few seconds
06:00:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> long Lion series ... change for NG later
06:01:19 <GO STEAMBOAT> that was at least #6
06:01:44 <ynpvisitor95> We missed Daisy but might see Grand
06:10:58 <ynpvisitor95> It took a while but I now have Grand to Bee, I'll leave it there, Kat can change it when she comes on.
06:17:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> temp says 32 ... chilly morning
06:23:05 <ynpvisitor95> I hope someone is at Grand, Tara was there, and at Lion early this AM
06:23:46 <ynpvisitor95> 0036 and 0100
06:27:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> for a moonlit Grand
06:27:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> Tara and Dean were at Ftn also 2239
06:34:51 <ynpvisitor95> there was an Artemisia at 0122 but I did not enter it (too much controversy) It is on the overnight if the want it
06:35:05 <ynpvisitor95> They*
06:35:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> why not put it in with a ? if you are not sure, or no ? if you are sure
06:35:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> it will help the gazers who dont check the overnight
06:36:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> in park folks wont be abe t see it
06:38:49 <ynpvisitor95> Oh, I am sure, there are just too many arguments even if you put a ? same thing as last night, I put in a note and finaly someone in basin posted it from the overnight
06:39:31 <GO STEAMBOAT> there were questions the other day when the interval was very short and recovery times shrt - thats a valid thing to question the info
06:39:40 <ynpvisitor95> actually w
06:39:46 <ynpvisitor95> william did
06:41:05 <ynpvisitor95> Graham they have gone flag crazy, I won't enter that arena
06:41:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> a flag is just a flag ..... dont feel hurt about it
06:43:52 <ynpvisitor95> i don't, I just think there are better ways, BTW I had a Giant Double flagged By Casry and Ryan, and guess what? It was later proved to be an actual Giant
06:44:22 <ynpvisitor95> CDasey
06:44:28 <ynpvisitor95> Casey
06:45:08 <CraigC> OF static
06:45:29 <GO STEAMBOAT> that can happen Joe .... no information set is perfect
06:45:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> and the eruption is back on GT now
06:45:48 <ynpvisitor38> Grand
06:47:53 <lc> morning
06:47:55 <ynpvisitor95> I know it can happen, but the double flag thing is the wrong way to do things
06:48:04 <CraigC> hey lc
06:51:53 <CraigC> my perception; there is some division between here and the people that don't come in here, and I also see some overgeneralizing. But there is some legitimacy about careless entries, and if there isn't better oversight, then the bridge isn't going to mend well, IMO
06:52:47 <CraigC> and the griping has also made me gunshy about entires
06:52:56 <CraigC> entries
06:53:51 <ynpvisitor95> I agree Craig, hence I did not enter last nights Arty
06:54:45 <ynpvisitor95> But i see Graham did :)
06:55:32 <CraigC> so there are lots of really cool people that appreciate the information from here, and they shouldn't suffer from not knowing stuff that may have occurred
06:56:48 <CraigC> Dean and William love to study Arty, and I am sure they both would want to know about possible eruption last night
06:57:15 <lc> I don't understand Bill's comment on SB.
06:57:36 <lc> is he saying water only lasted 5 min?
06:57:39 <CraigC> hey Kat
06:57:47 <CraigC> lc, sounds that way
06:58:00 <Kat> Running a little late, be on soon!
06:58:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> i was confused too, sounds like water cutoff and then a delay before steam started
06:58:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> really curious what it looked like yesterday
06:58:49 <ynpvisitor95> Don't hurry control is hard to get
06:59:06 <lc> yes, no notes yesterday.
07:00:11 <CraigC> when I didn't see any updates on SB all day yesterday, I took it that things were so active there that they were staying and watching. So I told my g/f last ngiht that I thought it would erupt within the day
07:00:36 <lc> seems most SB eruptions are a little different but this one must have been VERY different.
07:01:04 <CraigC> lots of heat, low on water fill?
07:01:29 <lc> funny, I took it that nothing had changed. :p
07:02:30 <lc> lot of us going to be interested in what happens now.
07:06:50 <Dave from B™> Happy day after SB day!
07:07:15 <lc> morning Dave
07:07:18 <CraigC> hey Dave
07:07:28 <Dave from B™> Morning lc, CraigC
07:08:06 <Dave from B™> Time for some last 100 SB stats
07:08:19 <Dave from B™> Meidan remained exactly the same at 9d7h20m
07:08:24 <Dave from B™> Median*
07:08:41 <Dave from B™> Mean dropped by 4h40m to 134d21h28m
07:09:05 <Dave from B™> The next eruption will tie the record of 32 eruptions set last year
07:09:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> if it happens this year :)
07:09:51 <Dave from B™> GS, really? Take your negative energy somewhere else this morning!:D
07:11:06 <ynpvisitor51> Yay! Chris D was there!!
07:12:52 <Dave from B™> Was that his first?
07:13:08 <Dave from B™> I know he tried REALLY hard at one point last year right before going home
07:13:25 <ynpvisitor51> Yes, and he's been there for days. Last year he missed one overnight
07:13:27 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats good to hear, must hae been good for people to say out
07:14:27 <Dave from B™> I'm expecting a similar interval the next time around
07:17:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> if it goes before the 22nd we will have 51 in the last year, a new record
07:20:46 <CraigC> lot of steam
07:22:58 <Cooper> WOHO
07:23:00 <Cooper> SB
07:23:09 <Cooper> Good Morning Everyone
07:23:17 <CraigC> hey Cooper
07:23:41 <Cooper> hey CraigC
07:26:40 <lc> will be interesting to see how long it takes Cistern to fill.
07:27:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> are you going for LD lc?
07:28:09 <ynpvisitor95> Hi Kat you almost had it
07:28:25 <ynpvisitor95> Ah! now
07:28:28 <ynpvisitor77> Got it now!
07:28:48 <JarnoO fka 999> morning all
07:28:59 <Cooper> Morning Jarno, or should I say Afternoon
07:29:01 <ynpvisitor77> Almost ....
07:29:30 <JarnoO fka 999> afternoon, Cooper. I'm 8 hours ahead of the US most of the year
07:30:01 <Cooper> So it would be 3:29 PM, Correct
07:30:03 <Cooper> Hey Kat
07:30:16 <Kat> Morning
07:30:25 <JarnoO fka 999> no, not the entire US. I'm 8 hours ahead of the time in Yellowstone most of the year
07:30:32 <JarnoO fka 999> and yes, Cooper
07:30:42 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
07:31:13 <ynpvisitor51> so you don't have a change to Standard when we do?
07:31:26 <JarnoO fka 999> no, we switch to DST on a different date
07:31:39 <Kat> Chilly this morning!
07:31:40 <JarnoO fka 999> to and from*
07:31:55 <lc> Graham, we get there day before you.
07:32:54 <JarnoO fka 999> our DST (or 'summer time' as we call it) spans from the last Sunday of March to the last Sunday of October
07:33:14 <Cooper> BSB?
07:33:23 <Cooper> nope
07:34:08 <JarnoO fka 999> DST switch in March occurs at 0200 (0200 -> 0300), while returning to standard time occurs in October at 0300 (0300 -> 0200)
07:35:03 <ynpvisitor51> Some americans want to get rid of the change.
07:36:30 <Cooper> I do not wan't it changed I do not like walking to the bus/school in the dark like I would be if it did not exist
07:38:02 <JarnoO fka 999> There are actually concrete plans for completely abandoning DST in the EU, with member states being allowed to decide in which timezone they want to be in
07:39:06 <Mike J> In Arizona, we got rid of it many years ago. Makes sense when you consider it means an extra hour of above 100 degree temperatures.
07:39:13 <JarnoO fka 999> my preference is to use UTC+1, as that is the closest to our natural time (UTC+35m)
07:44:12 <Cooper> BSB Puffing Steam
07:45:25 <ynpvisitor95> At 0030 set the clocks world wide back to 0000 change all school start times + 30 min, and never change again. Problem solved
07:45:57 <JarnoO fka 999> upcoming weeks will be important for Steamboat, as then it'll become apparant which effect this disturbance has had
07:51:51 <Chancellor> looks like a nice (chilly) morning on the Upper Geyser Basin
07:53:22 <Cooper> 32 Degrees, Awsome
07:53:29 <Cooper> Awesome**
08:01:11 <ynpvisitor98> DST is like cutting a foot off your blanket and sewing it to the top and imagining that you have a longer blanket.
08:02:30 <Kat> :)
08:02:42 <Cooper> That is a good analogy
08:03:41 <Cooper> Hey Kevin
08:03:46 <Dave from B™> Morning Kevin
08:03:50 <Cooper> How is you day going so far?
08:05:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Just trying to wake up.
08:09:13 <Cooper> West Bubblers?
08:09:19 <Cooper> and BSB?
08:14:42 <Kat> OF
08:19:47 <ynpvisitor110> Rside soon
08:20:10 <Cooper> Daisy
08:36:34 <Cooper> R-Side
08:41:28 <JarnoO fka 999> Bulger
09:09:24 <Kat> Bulger
09:10:29 <Kat> minor Bulger
09:18:53 <Cooper> Hey Fish
09:20:08 <fishynp> good morning
09:20:57 <JarnoO fka 999> morning fishynp
09:22:48 <Jake> hey fishynp, this is your event, right?
09:23:35 <Jake> any SLC area gazers, check out this event tomorrow night 8/14 ^
09:23:41 <Cooper> Hey Jake
09:25:31 <Enily> Hi
09:25:44 <Cooper> Hey Enily:p
09:25:55 <JarnoO fka 999> morning Emily
09:26:39 <Ennily> That’s even worse but we’ll take it
09:31:51 <Kat> Cam :thumbsdown:
09:33:24 <JarnoO fka 999> OT ie
09:34:22 <Kat> This almost unmanageable!
09:36:13 <Kat> OF a few minutes early!
09:36:53 <Kat> static cam is down
09:37:12 <JarnoO fka 999> [i]delightful[/i]
09:37:58 <fishynp> Jake, Yes, that is me.
09:38:16 <Cooper> At least I have a screen to do research, watch movies and surf the rest of the internet.
09:39:13 <Casey> Morning
09:39:21 <Cooper> Hey Casey
09:39:23 <JarnoO fka 999> morning Casey
09:39:44 <Casey> Hi Cooper, Jarno.
09:40:04 <Casey> Did you retire the ynpvisitor999 name, Jarno?
09:41:34 <JarnoO fka 999> almost, Casey
09:42:04 <ynpvisitor5> What was the 999 for?
09:43:17 <JarnoO fka 999> the 999 goes back to when I decided to join this page anonimously, but didn't want to cause duplicate names (which you sometimes get when the chat program gives you a name which has already been taken)
09:44:03 <Cooper> how long until you are just JarnoO
09:44:05 <Kat> wow 18 seconds from recovering to failing!
09:44:38 <JarnoO fka 999> back then the random names only went up to I think 99, but in case if it were to be heighened, 999 would be the least likely maximum in the forseeable years
09:45:49 <JarnoO fka 999> as for how long I will still be retaining the 999 in my name, don't know. Possibly another week or two at maximum
09:46:16 <Cooper> Hello Madame Marie Curie, aka Jimbo
09:46:31 <JarnoO fka 999> morning Jimbo
09:46:50 <Casey> So glad steamboat erupted. I actually thought we were still a few days out. The next intervals will be interesting.
09:47:27 <Mme. Curium> Hello Cooper, Jarno, and all the ships at sea
09:48:02 <JarnoO fka 999> interesting fact: as Marie Curie worked so much with radioactive material, even her cookbook is considered to be dangerously radioactive
09:48:42 <Cooper> OF
09:49:04 <Cooper> So Jarno, where in the Netherlands do you live?
09:49:04 <Mme. Curium> Reminds me of early Steve Martin routine
09:49:37 <Mme. Curium> Nice rooster tail start on OF
09:49:49 <Mme. Curium> Deep Blue (to see where it is)
09:50:00 <JarnoO fka 999> in one of the coastal provinces. Am not going any further at this moment
09:50:29 <Cooper> nice
09:50:37 <Cooper> do you have a boat, or fish at all?
09:50:39 <JarnoO fka 999> I bet Eric would know much more of my location if he keeps track of who connected from which IP address
09:51:10 <JarnoO fka 999> don't have a boat, nor do I fish
09:51:18 <ynpvisitor5> Hopefully he has better things to do!
09:51:38 <Cooper> you should try at some point
09:52:02 <ynpvisitor5> Why should he?
09:52:14 <Cooper> he might like it.
09:52:44 <Mme. Curium> Jarno, I thought the Netherlands consists entirely of coastal provinces. >(>(
09:52:57 <JarnoO fka 999> not in our terminology :D
09:54:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> theres a 999 limit on the countdown counter to visit Yellowstone ... Jarno has it pegged there
09:54:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats less than 3 years tho :)
09:58:42 <Mme. Curium> Two kayaks entering the park on Electric Peak cam (since there's not much else to see)
09:59:22 <Cooper> Ha that Green one looks like my kayak
09:59:31 <Mme. Curium> :thumbsup:
10:00:32 <Kat> Big crowd
10:00:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Guess it is my turn to fight the cam.
10:01:22 <Dave from B™> Anyone else a little shocked that SB erupted already?
10:01:25 <Kat> Sorry Kevin - hope it's not too bad!
10:01:37 <Cooper> Morning Kevin and Dave
10:01:41 <Cooper> and Dave, yes, yes I was
10:02:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> it was a day or two early Dave
10:02:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> and hopefully puts it in play LD week
10:02:37 <Cooper> SB Note
10:03:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> lets see how long this eruption lasts, sounds strong this morning
10:05:10 <Kevin L™🌵> You need to buy that RV Dave.
10:06:00 <GO STEAMBOAT> i thought he bought it already?
10:06:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> last 3 Grand intervals over 6h :(
10:07:54 <Kevin L™🌵> I think he pushed the "Add to Cart" button but hasn't made it to Checkout yet.
10:08:57 <Dave from B™> Should be in my hands in about 8-10 days
10:09:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> :thumbsup:
10:09:50 <Cooper> Sounds Fun
10:10:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> no free 2 day shipping i guess
10:11:54 <Dave from B™> Still at the Winnebago plant going thru final check
10:13:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> did you buy the optional deer deflectors?
10:15:10 <Dave from B™> It has the latest in deer aversion technology
10:17:39 <Mme. Curium> This should work on the deer:
10:18:29 <Cooper> Well, I am going to go for a walk
10:18:40 <JarnoO fka 999> cya Cooper, enjoy your walk
10:18:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Tannerite is sooooo fun.
10:19:03 <Mme. Curium> Thought you'd like that.
10:19:06 <Dave from B™> I have to remember there are some things I just can't tell the chat room:)
10:21:53 <ynpvisitor93> Dave is getting a winnebago? He is turning into his dad. He can get a spot on that commercial.
10:22:12 <JarnoO fka 999> Castle
10:22:13 <JarnoO fka 999> ie
10:22:35 <ynpvisitor93> Was going to say he missed SB but this is better.
10:22:35 <ynpvisitor91> One plus on the camera, It has only been down 12 times per hour since 7 AM :)
10:22:53 <Mme. Curium> Castle start, 30 second lag
10:23:01 <JarnoO fka 999> so 1022 exact?
10:24:01 <Mme. Curium> Given my time to type the message, 10-15 seconds after 1022
10:24:05 <JarnoO fka 999> Bulger ie
10:24:54 <JarnoO fka 999> Rocket ie
10:24:58 <ynpvisitor91> Castle from cam 1021:54
10:25:50 <JarnoO fka 999> thanks #91
10:27:56 <Dave from B™> I'm not sure I understand the dad comment
10:31:22 <ynpvisitor91> Dave, You would have to see the are you turning into your dad commercial
10:31:24 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave must go out for beer during the commercials.
10:31:37 <ynpvisitor93>
10:33:16 <ynpvisitor91> ‹Kevin L™🌵› Dave must go out for beer during the commercials. ;) that is a good thing:)
10:34:34 <Dave from B™> haha Thanks
10:34:54 <ynpvisitor93>
10:36:05 <JarnoO fka 999> Daisy
10:36:14 <Dave from B™> 93 ,that's better yet. I loved that show
10:37:49 <JarnoO fka 999> transition to steam phase, major
10:37:59 <Cooper> back from my walk, it is too hot 86f
10:42:43 <ynpvisitor93> Didn't Chevy Chase do a vacation movie with a Winnebago?
10:44:40 <Dave from B™> Yes, he did...why are you guys all wishing calamity for me?
10:46:35 <Kevin L™🌵> We have seen an example of how you drive.
10:48:18 <Dave from B™> My first accident since college and I don't get a free pass?
10:48:36 <Cooper> never!
10:59:35 <Cooper> Looks like NE Colorado, and the Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado Corner has a chance decent Chance of Tornadoes
11:28:26 <Cooper> That is early for a super-cell to begin rotating
11:29:49 <JarnoO fka 999> guess it's a vigorous storm?
11:34:45 <Mme. Curium> Are you seeing a tornado watch/warning somewhere?
11:34:57 <Cooper> Nope
11:35:15 <Cooper> but they are planning to issue on later in the day, but they might issue one now
11:36:28 <Cooper> it is not low-level but the super-cell(storm) it-self is rotating, and here is the Sever Storm Chances,
11:39:25 <Cooper> gone now
11:43:18 <Mme. Curium> Nebraska is just a severe storm
11:44:06 <Cooper> it did have a little bit of upper-level rotation
11:44:59 <Cooper> and there still is
11:45:07 <Cooper> just a little bit tho
11:45:27 <Cooper> Just East of Oshkosh
12:05:54 <ynpvisitor?> Good thing the weather radar works better then the web cam.
12:06:14 <Cooper> hahahaha, ROFL
12:21:36 <JarnoO fka 999> Turban 1214
12:22:11 <Dave from B™> Is this the Weather Chat room?:)
12:22:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Sometimes
12:22:46 <ynpvisitor...> We're waiting for the curling season to start :)
12:22:51 <Cooper> Well, it is not the Live Streaming Webcam anymore(it is not live)
12:25:12 <Cooper> it is clear they read my request to issue a Tornado Watch, they issued it
12:25:41 <Cooper> or should I say they are issuing it at this time
12:26:21 <Cooper> NE Colorado, NW Kansas, SW Nebraska
12:30:12 <Cooper> We have a low-level rotating wall cloud
12:30:26 <JarnoO fka 999> which is bad?
12:31:09 <Cooper> well, it increases the chances of a tornado to about 50%, and with the size and movement of the storm it could be bad depending on which way you look at it.
12:35:16 <Mme. Curium> Cooper, where do you get this info?
12:36:41 <Cooper> Well, I get most of it on the NWS Main Page, and other pages on the NWS, but because I am a certified storm spotters I get a little head's up to the rest of the public
12:37:12 <Cooper> Do you want the links?
12:37:41 <Mme. Curium> No, it's OK. I mainly watch the weather radars but you are getting very detailed info.
12:38:30 <Cooper> Well, I get a few minutes head's up on Non-Emergency Warning/Watch issues, and the rest of it is just using the information and radars to get the information
12:39:22 <Cooper> of example on the storm near Oshkosh I am looking at Velocity, and am interpreting the Data.
12:39:27 <Cooper> for* not of
12:40:24 <Cooper> looks like the wall cloud is dissipating
12:41:21 <Cooper> oh come on, they cancelled the Tornado Watch, and are Re-Issuing it at 13:00 with more information
12:46:13 <Betty> afternoon all
12:46:23 <Cooper> Hey Betty
12:46:36 <Betty> hi Cooper
12:46:39 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
12:46:52 <JarnoO fka 999> evening Betty
12:47:03 <Betty> hi Kevin, feeling any better today?
12:47:12 <Betty> hi Jarno
12:47:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Not really. Still pretty sore.
12:48:12 <Cooper> Re-issuing Tornado Watch in 2 minutes now, apperantly
12:53:35 <Betty> it takes a long time to cure those injuries. I fear you have to deal them some weeks
12:54:44 <Dave from B™> I'd say something snarky but I'm supposed to respect my elders:)
12:55:00 <Betty> hi Dave
12:55:08 <Cooper> No Insult, but ROFL
12:55:34 <Cooper> OF
12:55:43 <Dave from B™> Hey Betty
12:56:26 <Betty> good to see there was a Steamboat :-)
12:56:54 <Dave from B™> Yes. I wasn't expecting it until later this week.
12:57:24 <Betty> makes me hope to see one :-)
12:57:53 <Kevin L™🌵> It does take a lot longer to heal. And your time is coming Dave.
12:57:57 <Dave from B™> I'd like to see the next one shorten up a bit but probably won't happen.
12:58:22 <Dave from B™> Kevin, I know it is....that is why the rush to go places.
12:58:30 <Cooper> Tornado Watch Issued
12:59:03 <Dave from B™> Time to go sweat again. Go Oblong!:)
12:59:14 <Betty> have fun
13:00:55 <JarnoO fka 999> cya Dave, enjoy
13:07:07 <ynpvisitor...> Fluff for lunch but it wasn't the hoped for Grand, Daisy, Beehive. Too greedy on my part.
13:07:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Faisy
13:13:34 <ynpvisitor66> Dave leaves work whenever he wants, you would think he owns the place!
13:14:05 <Kent> Anyone know what determines a major or minor disturbance at Norris? Is it just a subjective judgement?
13:18:45 <ynpvisitor66> Grand crowd must be getting restless
13:19:04 <ynpvisitor66> there is a geyser named Restless?
13:19:14 <Kevin L™🌵> I can see them jumping
13:21:19 <ynpvisitor66> looks packed
13:22:22 <ynpvisitor66> steam behind the trees...
13:23:04 <ynpvisitor66> what causes that wobble? And then down...
13:24:42 <ynpvisitor106> Fixing broken flag polls?
13:26:16 <Cooper> Dank is at Bee
13:30:16 <ynpvisitor66> close together...BSBs
13:30:27 <ynpvisitor66> I'd say BH is imminent
13:30:41 <Cooper> Yup
13:30:43 <Cooper> I agree
13:30:51 <JarnoO fka 999> I'd rather watch Bee than Grand at the moment, to be honest
13:31:15 <Cooper> same
13:31:32 <Cooper> Thanks
13:32:41 <Kevin L™🌵> I wonder if Grand went during OF
13:32:43 <ynpvisitor66> I think Dan is a Ranger. I hope he can stick around for it
13:32:58 <ynpvisitor66> wouldn't the benches be empty than Kevin?
13:33:33 <ynpvisitor66> then
13:33:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Probably
13:34:07 <ynpvisitor66> have to hope someone there would tell folks and no change in prediction by VEC yet
13:34:11 <Kevin L™🌵> o Turban posted after 1214
13:34:23 <Kevin L™🌵> No
13:34:25 <JarnoO fka 999> Steamboat 1100-1200: 13.5 H. Still throwing water NV 75'+ & SV 10'+! Water flowing in both channels especially the NV! Cistern Spring is 2' below the rim of the inner tube. it is very clear, calm and a beautiful deep blue color!
13:34:29 <Cooper> ???? he Deleted the 1329 BSB
13:34:47 <ynpvisitor66> looks like Russel left. He posted Tilt Baby note on way out
13:35:18 <ynpvisitor66> so back to Grand?
13:35:28 <Cooper> I do not know
13:35:54 <ynpvisitor66> cam is so bad, does it even matter?
13:36:00 <Cooper> No
13:36:30 <Cooper> I perosndally would just put all of GH in the window, then we can get Lion, Bee, Aurum, Dome ext..
13:36:57 <ynpvisitor66> I like the BH to Grand view idea...
13:37:10 <Cooper> oh, that would be better
13:39:03 <ynpvisitor106> Any word on if they care?
13:39:50 <ynpvisitor66> new radio parts on order supposedly
13:40:32 <ynpvisitor106> That is the rumor. They should not have had Kevin order them.
13:40:49 <ynpvisitor66> Kevin's method would be much quicker than NPS, I can assure you
13:41:35 <ynpvisitor106> I could have ordered the parts from china and made radios by now.
13:42:02 <JarnoO fka 999> radio parts have probably stranded in Phoenix or so...
13:42:37 <JarnoO fka 999> South 1340, >= 17m interval
13:43:07 <ynpvisitor66> Grand will go first
13:44:18 <ynpvisitor106> They must be in one of the test drones and lost in space.
13:44:47 <ynpvisitor66> can we see Grand?
13:46:25 <ynpvisitor106> All I see is the circle X brand
13:47:12 <Cooper> Hey Graham, WB
13:47:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks, long lunch and work and stuff got in the way
13:47:48 <ynpvisitor66> you broke Grand
13:48:15 <ynpvisitor66> over 7 hours now
13:48:16 <Cooper> Tornado
13:48:20 <ynpvisitor106> Dave did it
13:48:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> Heinrick broke it saying there would be mor 5 Grand days
13:48:27 <Cooper> CTOG
13:48:39 <Mme. Curium> Did he break Grand or cause the tornado?
13:48:50 <ynpvisitor106> yes
13:48:52 <Cooper> I say cause the tornado
13:49:21 <ynpvisitor66> would be nice to see Grand area again
13:49:55 <ynpvisitor52> closed and back, and cam is up
13:50:07 <ynpvisitor52> maybe bee will be up next
13:50:13 <Cooper> it is Gray Rotation
13:50:24 <ynpvisitor66> BSB still 17 minutes apart
13:50:36 <ynpvisitor66> so let's hope not
13:50:45 <Cooper> as in there is no rotation, but there is a tornado, very interesting
13:51:18 <ynpvisitor52> I give.
13:51:41 <Cooper> hmm, the person who called it on the Radar, and in the field are there first reports!!!! GO THEM
13:51:54 <Cooper> There it is, nice hook echo
13:54:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> last 22 Bees have been 1356 +- 1h
13:56:17 <Cooper> 14 Min BSB Interval
13:56:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> so Bee should fit in the next hour
13:56:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> yawn ..... so predictable
14:00:06 <Mme. Curium> Just checking the radar
14:00:25 <Cooper> good rotation
14:00:30 <Cooper> nothing HUGE but good
14:01:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> C Tour bus coming thru west ... watch out
14:01:51 <ynpvisitor66> have we checked on Grand yet?
14:03:35 <ynpvisitor66> so nice this happened with BH being mid day instead of night
14:05:30 <Cooper> That is a great hook echo, good enough that I took a screen shot
14:08:53 <JarnoO fka 999> hm, supposedly Twilight Spring had an eruption @ 1247 ns
14:09:42 <ynpvisitor51> supposedly?
14:11:45 <JarnoO fka 999> should've used 'apparantly' or none of those words at all
14:14:55 <ynpvisitor66> I wonder what a Twilight Spring eruption looks like?
14:15:10 <Betty> indy
14:15:12 <Betty> .
14:15:13 <Betty> .
14:15:14 <Betty> .
14:15:28 <ynpvisitor66> I think it is a mistake as Dean was at Fountain
14:15:44 <ynpvisitor66> must have picked it instead of TWIG would be my guess
14:15:58 <JarnoO fka 999> now that you said it, it's probably Twig rather than Twilight
14:17:35 <ynpvisitor66> udo posted one last year, Twilight that is
14:18:06 <JarnoO fka 999> unrelated to that, whenever the Sawmill complex goes into a deep drain, Twilight sometimes has bursting eruptions which splash 2-5 feet according to TSB
14:18:32 <ynpvisitor66> hmmmm
14:18:48 <ynpvisitor66> there are waves on BHI now
14:19:09 <ynpvisitor23> nope, that is before indy starts
14:19:27 <Cooper> Hey Lori
14:19:54 <Betty> hi Lori
14:20:19 <LoriS> Hi Cooper and Betty
14:21:16 <LoriS> That's not Bee
14:21:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> ready for SB Betty?
14:21:22 <ynpvisitor115> nice x on streaming
14:21:34 <LoriS> Oh, down
14:22:04 <Cooper> This Thing
14:23:02 <LoriS> SB is more regular than the cam.
14:23:17 <LoriS> :p
14:23:32 <ynpvisitor115> just need to hang in their another day then won't have to worry about streaming or lack of
14:23:50 <LoriS> Becasue?
14:23:55 <LoriS> Because?
14:24:02 <ynpvisitor115> I will be back in there
14:24:03 <Cooper> so they are getting the radio tomorrow??
14:24:51 <ynpvisitor115> how did you come up with that Cooper?
14:25:17 <Cooper> Well, I thought when you said that you may have heard something about it
14:25:29 <Betty> I´m ready Graham :-)
14:25:38 <ynpvisitor115> No I will return to the Park and not need streaming
14:25:40 <LoriS> I'm not connecting the dots there, ynpvisitor115. You being in there means....
14:25:58 <LoriS> Ahhh
14:25:59 <ynpvisitor115> I can be at Beehive for eruptions
14:26:24 <LoriS> Betty, you comin to see SB?
14:27:14 <ynpvisitor115> I bet Betty is coming to see geysers and would like to see Steambozt
14:27:18 <ynpvisitor115> Steamboat
14:27:37 <Betty> yes, Lori, and yes 115
14:27:45 <LoriS> Betty, :thumbsup:
14:28:09 <LoriS> Steamboat is a geyser, I hear.
14:28:43 <Betty> arriving in West Yellowstone the 26th
14:28:52 <ynpvisitor115> I see we get longer down times today for streaming
14:29:12 <Cooper> Thanks Lori!
14:29:20 <Betty> great, Lori
14:29:58 <Cooper> .
14:29:59 <Cooper> .
14:29:59 <Cooper> .
14:30:01 <JarnoO fka 999> Bee ns
14:30:01 <Cooper> .
14:30:02 <Cooper> Bee
14:30:06 <Casey> Woot
14:30:07 <Betty> yeah
14:30:28 <JarnoO fka 999> at least we got a few seconds of it
14:30:31 <LoriS> I got no cam
14:30:40 <ynpvisitor115> I got an x
14:31:13 <LoriS> Think I see steam on static
14:31:31 <LoriS> Oh, and OF ie
14:31:53 <JarnoO fka 999> Bee's more important, plus you can't move the cam at all now
14:32:09 <LoriS> JarnoO fka 999®, I still have no cam :(
14:32:41 <Betty> If you don´t know, you could guess both views are the same geyser
14:36:02 <LoriS> Guess I have a forever view of down basin
14:37:23 <ynpvisitor34> did Grand ever erupt?
14:37:23 <LoriS> For those that missed the news, head on collision on the west entrance road at 8 mile yesterday. 3 ambulances, 3 life flights, and they closed the west entrance for a bit.
14:45:51 <LoriS> Well, suppose I'll get back to my project at work. Not much to see here. :p
14:46:12 <Cooper> Bye Lori
14:46:15 <Cooper> Enjoy
14:46:40 <LoriS> Bye Cooper. Ha, enjoy work. That's rich. LOL
14:51:30 <Cooper> i WONDER WHEN gRAND wENT
14:51:33 <Cooper> Ooops
14:51:40 <Cooper> I Wonder When Grand Went**
14:52:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> probably during the OF wait at the ~6h mark
14:53:25 <Cooper> WOW, That tornado is still there
15:04:33 <ynpvisitor2> Go SB, we were watching for Grand long after OF went, lots of folks waiting. Did not go during OF
15:05:40 <ynpvisitor2> NPS has 2045 prediction up now
15:06:25 <ynpvisitor2> Anyone know what interval they use?
15:06:32 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
15:06:38 <JarnoO fka 999> night Betty
15:06:45 <Cooper> night Betty
15:08:38 <JarnoO fka 999> according to HK's blog, NPS uses a window "from five hours to six and one half" after an eruption
15:09:32 <ynpvisitor2> So you should be able to figure an A time
15:09:38 <JarnoO fka 999> mhm
15:10:10 <JarnoO fka 999> 5h45m is the center of the window
15:10:38 <JarnoO fka 999> so subtracted from the predicted time would give 1500 A
15:10:42 <JarnoO fka 999> unfortunately
15:11:36 <ynpvisitor2> Thanks Jarno
15:12:20 <Dave from B™> Why a need to post an A time? Just use a double interval when figuring the next eruption
15:12:43 <Cooper> Geez, that Tornado has been on the ground for at least 45 minutes
15:13:15 <Dave from B™> So, based on NPS prediction, there was a longer Grand interval?
15:13:51 <Dave from B™> So, is 353 Grandi interval 0n 8/9/19 accurate?
15:14:49 <JarnoO fka 999> likely DST inaccurace. Pool would probably not be in overflow at the 3h53m mark
15:15:02 <Dave from B™> I wonder if time was 0118 instead
15:15:41 <Dave from B™> SB still leaking as of noon
15:16:39 <JarnoO fka 999> I've left a comment on that entry, Dave. I recall someone sent an e-mail to the VEC, too
15:18:18 <Dave from B™> Thanks, Jarno
15:21:18 <ynpvisitor2> A times are nice for seeing the time since the last Grand. If VEC posted a new prediction, they have the time
15:25:38 <JarnoO fka 999> Also 1755 Daisy prediction. Not sure what window the NPS uses for Daisy
15:34:43 <Cooper> Confirmed End of the Deadly Lincoln Colorado Tornado, 7 Houses Demolished, EF3, .5 Mile Wide Funnel, Total Duration: 57 Minutes, Wedge, Total Length Traveled: About 29 Miles.
15:35:58 <JarnoO fka 999> oh boy
15:37:01 <Cooper> New Information: 0 Dead. SO while it was a terrible tornado, it did not kill anyone.
15:37:08 <Cooper> I hope Reed was there
15:38:03 <ynpvisitor31> is this the tornado webcam room?
15:38:38 <Cooper> Well, it is not the Live Streaming Webcam Room
15:39:02 <JarnoO fka 999> well, as the cam is now more or less a static cam, you may as well repurpose this room a little bit :D
15:39:11 <Kevin L™🌵> At least the tornado moves.
15:39:19 <JarnoO fka 999> good one, Kevin
15:39:42 <Cooper> Rotation Re-Confirmed, may have a re-spawn soon, but I hope not
15:40:40 <JarnoO fka 999> did that tornado spawn from the supercell you mentioned earlier with rotation sooner than expected?
15:40:58 <Cooper> yes
15:41:56 <Cooper> I hope that my email to NWS Got some more storm chasers there
15:43:01 <Cooper> well, technically, 2 storms merged, and then they spawned a tornado
15:46:10 <Cooper> CTE 15:33, CRE 15:43
15:46:23 <JarnoO fka 999> and in English?
15:46:52 <Cooper> CTE= Confirmed Tornado End, CRE= Confirmed Rotation End
15:47:49 <JarnoO fka 999> perhaps interesting to watch the storm form - GOES-East satellite with 96 frames looped:
15:48:16 <Cooper> it is very interesting
15:49:01 <Cooper> that is actually how we determine to issue a Tornado Watch for a specific storm
16:48:22 <Lori S> Hello Again Everyone Hello
16:48:34 <Cooper> Afternoon Lori
16:49:31 <Lori S> Thanks Cooper!
16:50:03 <Dave from B™> Hello Lori Hello
16:50:08 <Cooper> Thanks, makes everything better!
16:50:15 <Lori S> Howdy Dave
16:50:29 <Dave from B™> You people are eating TOO many cookies:)
16:50:55 <Lori S> Haven't eaten much in the last week and a half so I am hungry!
16:52:07 <Lori S> I mean, really, what did we all do before antibiotics and Prednisone?
16:52:37 <Kevin L™🌵> We died.
16:52:49 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, I suppose so.
16:53:51 <Kevin L™🌵> At least then someone else has to pay the bills.
16:54:18 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, LOL Oh my!
16:56:00 <Dave from B™> Kevin, has your wife been taking good care of you? Or, is she ready to go back to work:)
16:56:26 <Kevin L™🌵> She went back to work 2 weeks ago.
16:56:55 <Dave from B™> I didn't realize school was on already for you
16:57:12 <Kevin L™🌵> Kids went back yesterday.
16:58:11 <Lori S> BRB Cam just won't unfreeze
16:58:24 <Cooper> ok
16:58:37 <Kevin L™🌵> I have bee using it to ice my arm.
17:06:19 <Cooper> wait it moved
17:11:40 <Lori S> I see movement! Finally.
17:12:13 <Lori S> Restarted the computer.
17:24:39 <GO STEAMBOAT> wow that was a long Grabd interval, shame nobody was posting any times. maybe MBS will post tonight
17:25:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> odd ... looks like Russell and Dean were around posted OT, LC, Tilts Baby around that time
17:26:25 <Cooper> But they may have heard the BHI Call and left
17:27:08 <GO STEAMBOAT> OT 1524 and Tilts Baby 1441
17:27:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> seems odd they didnt stop to get Grand
17:27:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> and nobody else did ... oh well
17:27:53 <Cooper> okay.. now that seem od
17:27:56 <Cooper> odd*
17:27:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe the VEC time is wrong .. haha
17:28:22 <Lori S> Cam was frozen then, right?
17:28:37 <Cooper> I would not be surprised, especially if they are as good with Predictions as they are with the cam
17:28:41 <Cooper> WB Lori
17:29:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe it went during BH
17:29:29 <Lori S> Thx Cooper. Was fighting with the computer there for a bit.
17:30:32 <Lori S> Bob got a video early this morning of SB steam backlit by the mostly full moon. He won't let me share it.
17:30:56 <Cooper> I see Reed was in Colorado for these storms even if he missed the biggest tornado of the day
17:32:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> its not nice to tease us Lori
17:32:20 <Cooper> OF ie on static
17:32:32 <Cooper> last one must have been a medium
17:32:44 <Lori S> GO STEAMBOAT, sorry. It's most;y a black screen with a bright dot in the middle.
17:33:13 <Kevin L™🌵> Or a short.
17:33:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> he was out early then
17:33:26 <Dave from B™> Time to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
17:33:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> bye Dave
17:33:37 <Cooper> Bye Dave
17:33:56 <Lori S> He works 3rd shift. Was coming back from Canyon after sandblasting restroom floors of old urine.
17:34:02 <Lori S> Bye Dave
17:34:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Fun job.
17:34:49 <Lori S> The janitors at Canyon General apparently don't ever clean the bathroom floors.
17:35:28 <Lori S> He is just supposed to strip and re-wax. But he ends up having to clean first most of the time.
17:36:25 <Lori S> He likes the job for th travel time at night when no one else is driving around.
17:36:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats no fun...but he did see some SB steam.
17:37:18 <Lori S> He wanted to see the Perseids but "settled" for SB.
17:37:44 <Cooper> Hey Craig
17:37:50 <CraigC(11)> hey cooper
17:38:03 <Lori S> Hi Craig
17:38:08 <CraigC(11)> hey Lori
17:38:26 <CraigC(11)> will SB erupt before or after 11 days?
17:38:51 <Lori S> CraigC(11), I think after. You might get 3 in a row!
17:39:14 <CraigC(11)> I can't get 3 in a row, I missed this one
17:39:22 <Lori S> Oh, duh.
17:39:27 <CraigC(11)> LOL
17:39:38 <CraigC(11)> and I bet it goes before 11 days
17:40:12 <Lori S> All eyes on Cistern...
17:40:25 <CraigC(11)> yup
17:51:40 <GO STEAMBOAT> a Daisy and a Pink Cone
18:08:51 <Cooper> SB Note
18:10:21 <Lori S> Cistern empty. SB quietly steaming. Let the count up begin.
18:10:38 <Cooper> Yup
18:10:45 <Cooper> Missed an Aurum
18:11:04 <Lori S> I thought I saw Aurum steam when the cam froze earlier.
18:11:36 <Lori S> Can still see steam on static
18:12:04 <Lori S> Well, the 18:09 static
18:15:17 <Kevin L™🌵> If another camop wants to take it feel free. I will be tied up tonight.
18:16:03 <CraigC(11)> :thumbsup:
18:18:19 <Lori S> Wher is the overlook?
18:18:34 <Lori S> Missed that tutorial
18:20:19 <CraigC(11)> probably too hard to pick out unless there are people there
18:20:29 <Lori S> Was that it?
18:20:47 <CraigC(11)> I don't know, I have never seen anyone zoom in where it is
18:20:55 <Lori S> Oh, OK.
18:21:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Above and right of Dome
18:21:19 <CraigC(11)> I was going to try and find it if Lynn came in on Sat morning
18:21:29 <Lori S> That bare spot?
18:21:59 <Kevin L™🌵> right side
18:22:16 <Lori S> I was up ther once back in the 90's. :)
18:22:48 <Lori S> :thumbsup: Thx
18:22:53 <ynpvisitor79> I think that's the right outcrop, center of the (frozen) picture.
18:23:08 <Cooper> Hey Michael
18:23:13 <CraigC(11)> I'll zoom when it comes back up
18:23:15 <Kevin L™🌵> You can see the railing on it
18:23:16 <Michael> Hi Cooper.
18:23:17 <Cooper> You Missed the HUGE Tornado Today
18:23:36 <Lori S> Sorry to freeze us on trees!
18:25:03 <CraigC(11)> people there
18:25:24 <Lori S> I see the railing!
18:25:54 <CraigC(11)> froize again
18:26:07 <CraigC(11)> thanks, Kevin
18:26:11 <Kevin L™🌵> You got it!
18:26:18 <CraigC(11)> I didn't know that was where it was
18:31:23 <GO STEAMBOAT> so SB finished with a shorter, more normal, eruption
18:33:36 <Lori S> Define shorter. It was still splashing water today.
18:34:06 <Cooper> Evening Linda
18:34:07 <LindaG> Hello everyone hello
18:34:13 <CraigC(11)> hey Linda
18:34:16 <Lori S> Hello Linda Hello
18:34:18 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
18:35:02 <LindaG> CraigC(11), hi
18:35:08 <Michael> Hi Linda
18:35:50 <LindaG> Michael, hi
18:36:00 <CraigC(11)> LindaG, Kevin had to leave, I am doing some cam driving for a few, but gonna have dinner soon, if you want it later, go ahead, I will leave it on OF otherwise
18:36:38 <LindaG> Imwas coming on to see if Kevin wanted to be relieved so yeah I can take it
18:36:55 <CraigC(11)> give me a few to explore around
18:37:25 <LindaG> Ok, I'll stay on till you are ready
18:37:27 <CraigC(11)> or did you take it
18:37:55 <LindaG> No I didnt
18:39:29 <LindaG> There he is!
18:39:41 <CraigC(11)> squatch squatting
18:39:57 <LindaG> 😊
18:40:10 <Cooper> Hi Ther
18:40:13 <Cooper> e
18:40:46 <LindaG> Legs
18:40:47 <Lori S> Nice boots
18:43:32 <GO STEAMBOAT> Lori - the latest SB report is that it was just steaming
18:43:42 <GO STEAMBOAT> and runoff was dry
18:43:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> so shorter than the last one
18:44:48 <Lori S> Oh, I meant it was till putting out water around Noon. You meant time to full drain?
18:45:03 <Cooper> LC
18:45:05 <LindaG> Lc
18:45:17 <Cooper> Deleted Teakettle, In Basin
18:45:18 <LindaG> Ha got me by 2 seconds ds lol
18:46:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Is that water on Big cub?
18:46:38 <Cooper> No, I think it is the cone behind it
18:46:58 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, hi
18:47:18 <CraigC(11)> which cone is behjind big cub?
18:47:40 <Michael> Big Cub is the pointier cone behind Lioness
18:47:44 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
18:47:57 <Cooper> Ooops, I flipped their names
18:48:03 <LindaG> Lions splashing
18:48:39 <Michael> There should be a "webcam flailing" status.
18:50:03 <CraigC(11)> Linda, you can take it now
18:50:46 <LindaG> Got it
18:52:01 <LindaGp> Now's there is 2 of me
18:56:22 <LindaGp> Apropos
18:56:49 <Lori S> Found that under uncertainty synonyms :)
18:57:15 <LindaGp> 😊
18:57:23 <Lori S> Old Faithful Live Niggle Cam
18:57:38 <LindaGp> Lol
18:57:46 <Cooper> ROFL
18:58:01 <ynpvisitor41> They fix the Hoover cam yet?
18:59:42 <Lori S> Night all.
18:59:54 <Cooper> Bye Lori
19:00:03 <LindaGp> Lori S, night lori
19:04:38 <LindaGp> OF is taking its time
19:05:40 <Cooper> OF
19:05:44 <LindaGp> OF
19:09:16 <Cooper> Long?
19:09:42 <LindaGp> Yup
19:09:54 <Cooper> :thumbsup:
19:10:34 <ynpvisitor41> yuk
19:10:55 <LindaGp> ?
19:11:16 <ynpvisitor41> pump pumping
19:11:43 <Cooper> how is that yuk?
19:12:06 <ynpvisitor41> pump not yuk
19:12:21 <Cooper> than what was yuk?
19:12:27 <ynpvisitor41> of
19:12:37 <ynpvisitor41> the queen of yuk
19:12:39 <Cooper> how was OF yuk?
19:14:32 <ynpvisitor41> Cooper, it is like having to watch a ef1 at the national tornado center instead of watching a ef5 at some poor farmers place.
19:15:13 <LindaGp> I haven't seen little squirt in a long time
19:15:49 <Cooper> how is it even related to that? ALL Tornadoes all VERY BAD, ALL Will Affect Someone, MANY will result in a death or injury!
19:16:25 <Cooper> an ef1 at the NTC is the same thing as an EF5 at SPFP
19:16:57 <Cooper> so I reallly do not get what you mean? could you explain it in a different way?
19:17:04 <ynpvisitor41> And ef5s are just a common right?
19:17:19 <Cooper> NO
19:17:35 <ynpvisitor41> That is why people spend all that time and cash chasing after them.
19:18:55 <Cooper> but they are just as bad as an EF1, if you are or become a storm chaser you grow a INSANELY Deep respect for tornadoes, and realize that EF1, and EF5 are all the same. BUT Now I get what you mean
19:19:45 <LindaGp> West triplet?
19:19:49 <Cooper> Sorry if I sound grouchy in Tornado terms, an EF1 Tornado today Nearly Killed someone, yet the EF3 did not.
19:19:53 <Cooper> Yes, I think so
19:20:12 <LindaGp> Me too
19:20:16 <GO STEAMBOAT> wt
19:20:27 <Michael> I don't think there's a tornado equivalent of Old Faithful. Incredibly powerful, yet not exciting if you've seen it 1000 times.
19:21:07 <Cooper> + OF is predictable, you never know when there is going to be a tornado
19:21:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> seen one SB, seen them all :)
19:21:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> fortunately geysers do not move
19:22:02 <Cooper> that is true
19:22:09 <ynpvisitor41> Well that would be the case if you could go back and see it over and over again and still plan reservations for dinner.
19:22:14 <GO STEAMBOAT> could you imagine predicting when and WHERE the geyser is
19:22:38 <Cooper> it would be IMPOSSIBLE, and that is my point
19:22:43 <Michael> I think you just described Semi-Centenial.
19:25:17 <ynpvisitor41> You can make book on having a better chance of seeing OF on static then having the web cam work to see it.
19:25:51 <Cooper> That is Rue
19:26:01 <Cooper> True
19:26:03 <Cooper> **
19:26:28 <Cooper> Confirmed Rotation Between Lamar and Limon Colorado on Radar
19:27:07 <ynpvisitor41> Well that circle water mark they use is interrupting my view. Back in a few months when they get around to removing it.
19:27:45 <ynpvisitor41> Limon is safe. They already had urban renewal from a twister.
19:28:03 <Cooper> ......
19:28:55 <Cooper> NO-ONE is safe from a Tornado that is within 100 miles of them, even 100 miles away you still have Straight Line Damage Possible
19:29:10 <Cooper> So I would not call Limon completely safe
19:29:42 <Cooper> while damage is un-likely, it is possible.
19:30:57 <Cooper> Reed is there, posted rotation on the Storm Chasers Pag
19:30:59 <Cooper> e
19:32:19 <Michael> Cooper, you're a bit tightly wound about tornados this week. [choice of words is intentional]
19:32:33 <Cooper> haha
19:32:58 <Cooper> Uhoh, Velocity Bounced(Will not be back up for at least 30 minutes)
19:33:14 <Michael> Given that there are 1000+ of them each year in the USA, it's not helpful to get so frantic about each possible one.
19:33:16 <Cooper> So that is the end of the Tornado talk for 30+ Minutes
19:35:03 <Cooper> Well, The reason I have been so frantic about them the last week is that the same spot keeps getting Hit, Over- and Over- again. and it has been a "highway" for tornadoes recently, and all of them have large chances of being large and dangerous.
19:35:32 <Cooper> AB
19:36:43 <Cooper> and because of that I am VERY Frantic about them occurring
19:39:36 <LindaGp> Marmot cave
19:41:55 <Cooper> Sorry if it was meant not meant this way, but I prefer not to get "told" how to be a Sky-Warn Storm Spotter, so before I go Crazy about this, I am going to take a break, I may be on tomorrow, or later tonight
19:44:02 <LindaGp> No reason to get crazy
19:46:47 <CraigC(11)> :i::i:
19:47:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't know, a geyser gazer who chases storms. Some people would classify that as crazy in itself.
19:47:34 <Cooper> well, I got "called back", and yes Kevin, it is crazy in itself
19:47:50 <Cooper> The Rotation went BOOM
19:47:58 <Cooper> Bulger
19:48:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> visitation down 1.19% so far this year
19:48:14 <Michael> Storm chasing is my usual point of reference for trying to explain a geyser-gazing hobby.
19:48:16 <LindaGp> Bulger
19:48:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I know Micah got compared with a hazel nut in a Utah paper.
19:48:39 <Cooper> So you are a storm chaser
19:48:50 <Michael> Although bird-watching is also up there as far as trying to see rare things in awful weather.
19:48:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> bulger
19:49:09 <LindaGp> Yup got ot
19:49:12 <LindaGp> It
19:49:34 <Michael> Not a chaser myself, but most people have heard of it. Or at least seen "Twister"
19:49:37 <CraigC(11)> maybe they will make a cynical movie about gazers like they did about birders
19:50:09 <Michael> Was that "The Big Year"?
19:50:19 <CraigC(11)> yeah LOL
19:50:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> the movie version will have boulders destroying the entier SB p;latform
19:50:21 <Kevin L™🌵>
19:50:30 <GO STEAMBOAT> and 30' waves down the runoff channel
19:50:37 <LindaGp> Sounds like Michael is a birder
19:50:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't forget the lava gushing forth from the cone.
19:51:07 <Cooper> sorry if it came across as harsh, but when you said "it's not helpful to get so frantic about each one possible one." It brought me back to the time that my Team hesitated to report rotation, and someone died, and then time time that reporting a little bit of rotation saved someones live.
19:51:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> Grand Prismatic boiling and turning the river all colors
19:51:45 <CraigC(11)> LOL
19:52:08 <CraigC(11)> as long as they use the same cast as Best in Show and Spinal Tap
19:52:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> someone driving an RV, backing into the Inn, and the entire structure comes falling down
19:52:28 <LindaGp> I can identify with the big year
19:53:06 <CraigC(11)> ok, I have to get back to Hell on Wheels....
19:53:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Storm chasers do have to be a bit crazy. I did enjoy watching Tim and the several others on the weather channel. Great footage and as you say Cooper, those reports save lives. Seconds can count.
19:54:46 <Cooper> Thanks Kevin, and yes you are right in the chasing game reporting can give someone the 1 second needed to jump down another stair, or close there door, which can save someones life.
19:56:51 <LindaGp> Daisy - grand window whoohoo
20:02:20 <LindaGp> Old tardy
20:06:45 <Michael> Hello Daisy.
20:06:46 <LindaGp> Daisy
20:06:47 <Cooper> :daisy:
20:10:56 <LindaGp> Lion just doesn't want to erupt
20:11:54 <LindaGp> Marmot cave
20:12:31 <LindaGp> Inthink depression might be splashing
20:12:35 <Cooper> 15 Minutes of uptime
20:13:28 <LindaGp> Maybe not
20:19:17 <LindaGp> Of ie
20:19:27 <LindaGp> No lc ie
20:19:57 <Michael> slight difference.
20:20:16 <Cooper> keep going Lion
20:20:21 <Cooper> that was a good surge
20:21:05 <Michael> Yeah. I'm hoping for big things when the camera comes up.
20:21:48 <Michael> darn.
20:21:50 <Cooper> or not
20:22:35 <LindaGp> My autocorrect insists on changing of to of
20:22:55 <LindaGp> See it did it again. Of to lc
20:22:57 <Cooper> of is of?
20:23:03 <Cooper> Haha
20:23:20 <Michael> Even when I used to spend lots of time on Geyser Hill, I could never tell if a Lion initial was 5 minutes away or 5 hours.
20:24:35 <LindaGp> Been 14 he 26 m since last lion
20:24:52 <LindaGp> *hr
20:25:35 <Michael> Based on what Beehive is doing, I'd guess it will go around 14:00 tomorrow. :)
20:26:00 <Cooper> I say 14:33
20:26:01 <LindaGp> Anyone have any ideas on how far away from Grand we are?
20:26:11 <Cooper> nope
20:26:28 <Michael> Not really. We lost Grand this afternoon and just have the NPS prediction to go by.
20:26:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Surprised no field report
20:27:44 <Michael> To thicken the plot, the NPS prediction hints that Grand had an 8-hour interval. Either that or someone made an arithmetic error.
20:27:56 <Michael> Either one is possible.
20:29:02 <LindaGp> Nice cloud
20:29:07 <Michael> [Thanks to JarnoO for noticing the strange interval.]
20:31:10 <LindaGp> Dep is very steamy
20:32:45 <Michael> OF on static
20:33:26 <LindaGp> Dang
20:33:38 <Cooper> short then?
20:35:28 <LindaGp> Don't know, seems so
20:36:24 <Michael> seems possible. Which is annoying because now we're less sure about the next window.
20:37:08 <LindaGp> I know. But then I'm not going to be here then so not sure it matters
20:38:45 <LindaGp> Im going to stay till 21:00
20:41:11 <Kevin L™🌵> I can take it back then
20:41:14 <LindaGp> Bulger
20:41:23 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, ok
20:41:30 <Michael> OK. In case I'm not paying attention then, I'll say goodnight in advance. :)
20:42:05 <LindaGp> 😊 goodnight in advance
20:45:03 <Cooper> well, I am off to bed, and I am not going to let any tornadoes wake me up this tine!
20:45:35 <Michael> Good night, Cooper. Sorry I got grumpy at you earlier.
20:45:41 <LindaGp> Cooper, good idea, goodnight
20:46:15 <Cooper> Night Linda, and Michael no problem
20:47:07 <CraigC(11)> wow, the colors
20:47:20 <ynpvisitor70> Twilight On the Trail
20:47:42 <LindaGp> Yeah pretty
20:47:49 <CraigC(11)> riverside
20:48:06 <LindaGp> Nice
20:49:20 <Michael> Pink steam time!
20:49:21 <CraigC(11)> hey Joe
20:49:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Riverside
20:56:27 <LindaGp> Whatnisnthat in the air? Rain?
20:56:55 <Michael> Maybe bugs.
20:59:35 <LindaGp> I'm trying tob get back to the basin but it wont stay up long enough. Yikes.
21:00:26 <Kevin L™🌵> Took me about 2 hours to do that this afternoon.
21:00:32 <ynpvisitor70> By the time you get logged back in the cam has gone down again :(
21:01:28 <LindaGp> Kevin if you want to log in when it comes up, go for it. 😁
21:01:40 <Kevin L™🌵> OK
21:02:16 <LindaGp> I'm going to get out
21:02:44 <LindaGp> I'm out
21:03:09 <Michael> Good night, Linda.
21:03:54 <LindaGp> Good night everybody
21:04:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Night
21:04:07 <ynpvisitor70> Night Linda
21:04:57 <CraigC(11)> MC
21:09:04 <ynpvisitor58> cam back
21:09:13 <Michael> And there's Grand!
21:09:24 <Kevin L™🌵> That is either a start or a 2nd
21:13:49 <ynpvisitor1> Kevin, you missed the big train wreck in Oregon. Trains do not like rocks ether.
21:14:11 <Kevin L™🌵> What happened?
21:16:08 <ynpvisitor1> 5 locos and a car jumped the tracks after hitting boulders. Fuel spill in creek. Other then that just a normal day on the rr.
21:16:38 <Kevin L™🌵> What is this geyser?
21:16:54 <ynpvisitor1> Maybe the train the cam parts is on.
21:16:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Rocket Major?
21:17:34 <Michael> I could easily believe a Rocket major. But I'm not felling sure enough to log it on GT.
21:17:46 <ynpvisitor1> Not sure
21:19:31 <ynpvisitor1> Would help if the hoover cam worked
21:20:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Couldn't tell if there was a 2nd.
21:23:00 <ynpvisitor1> Cam does not like me.
21:35:03 <Kevin L™🌵> Cam is released if anyone wants it.
22:05:56 <Michael> OF
22:15:48 <Michael> Is that Artemisia ie? Looks like the wrong place for Grotto.
22:27:22 <Michael> Lion ns
22:29:27 <Kevin L™🌵> Finally
22:30:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Is that Daisy?
22:30:28 <Michael> A long moonlit series would be nice payback.
22:30:31 <Michael> Yes.
