07:59:51 <ynpvisitorCC> can't log in
08:09:37 <ynpvisitor40> Go Something isn’t off to SB? What’s wrong with him?
08:38:21 <ynpvisitor73> Isn't it a couple of days too early for a river trip?
08:51:41 <Cooper> I see Graham is heading out to Norris for a bit, hope we get some notes
08:51:45 <Cooper> Good Morning Everyone
08:53:40 <Lori S Go 66> Oh, Hi Mr Cooper
08:54:54 <Cooper> Hi Ms. Lori
08:54:59 <Cooper> how is your day going?
08:55:08 <Lori S Go 66> I slept in. LOL
08:55:52 <Lori S Go 66> Set alarm for 0400. Snoozed it till 0415. Decided I liked my warm bed more than a trip into to park.
08:56:16 <ynpvisitorCC> OF
08:56:22 <KittyM> OF
08:56:44 <Cooper> yuck, Dorian Category 5, sustained 175 mph sustained
08:56:54 <Cooper> ready to slam into Bahamas
08:57:25 <Cooper> then work it's way along the coast of the US
08:57:36 <Lori S Go 66> Nature bats last
08:57:54 <Cooper> yup
08:58:02 <Lori S Go 66> Hope the humans down that way have taken refuge away form the area
08:58:40 <Cooper> me too
08:59:13 <Cooper> lucky it is not going to make direct landfall into the US, at least most likely, just skirt its coast
09:01:20 <Lori S Go 66> Wonder if GO SOMETHING has headed north yet.
09:02:45 <Cooper> I think he ha
09:02:47 <Cooper> s
09:03:18 <Cooper> said a LOT earlier, before I was awake that he headed to SB, and at worst check out Porcelain
09:03:30 <Lori S Go 66> Forgot to ask if he'd get me a photo of Fearless
09:04:09 <Cooper> grr. I have to hard reset my Computer, bbs
09:04:12 <Lori S Go 66> Though, I don't deserve one since I could have gone myself.
09:06:28 <Lori S Go 66> Yay! Down basin,
09:07:01 <Lori S Go 66> Surprised we have had ANY view for this long, though
09:11:27 <Lori S Go 66> Looks like Graham is still on th e hill
09:11:53 <Cooper1> yup
09:12:00 <Cooper1> it is on GT, so it happened
09:12:09 <Lori S Go 66> Cooper1, haha
09:12:22 <Lori S Go 66> Unless there's a ?
09:12:49 <Lori S Go 66> I had to go and compliment the cam...
09:13:03 <Lori S Go 66> bonk
09:14:08 <Lori S Go 66> Guess it needs tough love this morning
09:14:26 <Lori S Go 66> look at west gate cam
09:20:59 <ynpvisitor118> Bulger ie
09:25:12 <Lori S Go 66> Howdy Craig
09:25:13 <ynpvisitor118> Hello Craig, In the park now?
09:26:21 <CraigC> howdy, I am down in Rexburg, needed to get some stuff, and doing laundry
09:26:42 <LindaG> Hello everyone hello
09:26:44 <ynpvisitorCC> hi caig
09:26:48 <Lori S Go 66> Good day for that, rally.
09:26:54 <Lori S Go 66> really
09:26:55 <CraigC> I don't want to go into the park today, but o will go to Norris later on
09:26:55 <ynpvisitor118> Ah! the necessary stuff :)
09:27:01 <Lori S Go 66> Hello Linda hello
09:27:02 <Cooper1> Hi Linda
09:27:12 <LindaG> Cooper1, hi
09:27:15 <CraigC> Hey CC
09:27:22 <LindaG> Lori S Go 66, hi
09:27:23 <Cooper1> bbl
09:27:37 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning Craig.
09:27:50 <Lori S Go 66> SB Tuesday, I think
09:27:52 <CraigC> Hey Kevin
09:27:53 <ynpvisitor118> Well, off to do some rat killing
09:28:07 <CraigC> 118 is Joe?
09:28:14 <Kevin L™🌵> Sounds fun 118. :P
09:28:15 <ynpvisitor118> Yes
09:28:15 <Lori S Go 66> ynpvisitor118, have fun with that?
09:28:27 <LindaG> Go get those rats
09:28:40 <LindaG> CraigC, hey
09:29:12 <CraigC> seems like I am the only person that goes to the laundromat that doesn't smoke
09:29:13 <ynpvisitor118> Just a term I use when tackling a million little things that need to be done :)
09:29:20 <CraigC> Hey Linda
09:29:34 <Lori S Go 66> ynpvisitor118, ah
09:29:36 <LindaG> ynpvisitor118, 😊
09:29:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Nothing political then?
09:30:08 <ynpvisitor118> no not yet :)
09:30:14 <Lori S Go 66> CraigC, Swan's in town is usually smoke-free
09:30:24 <Lori S Go 66> Maybe one smoker every few weeks
09:31:58 <Lori S Go 66> Looks like traffic is backed up to at least Boundary St now
09:33:04 <LindaG> Dorian is a cat 5
09:33:21 <Lori S Go 66> eek
09:33:42 <LindaG> The Bahamas has big problems
09:35:40 <ynpvisitor39> Looks like mainland US will be spared, no landfall until it is much weaker
09:36:06 <ynpvisitor39> Hardly a line at West Gate
09:50:08 <Lori S Go 66> Computer needed a cache clear
09:56:33 <Lori S Go 66> Line at West Gate backed up out of view now
10:00:43 <Lori S Go 66> Thx for the Turban post Graham
10:18:09 <Lori S Go 66> Grand ie ?
10:18:22 <Lori S Go 66> and Down we go
10:21:15 <Lori S Go 66> Rocket ?
10:21:52 <Lori S Go 66> sigh
10:22:01 <Lori S Go 66> Giving up
10:22:46 <ynpvisitor89> Maybe it's just giving everyone more incentive to visit in person.
10:23:30 <ynpvisitor89> Did we miss Grand?
10:33:56 <ynpvisitor108> YES
10:35:16 <ynpvisitor89> I think the main webcam has turned into a static webcam with a three-minute cycle.
10:35:35 <ynpvisitor108> maybe SB will erupt without Graham??
11:03:52 <ynpvisitor81> I wonder why hk does not know his Sput D is called Delta
11:28:57 <ynpvisitor82> So what happened to Giantess? I thought it was happy.
11:29:41 <ynpvisitor81> Nope, just gazers noting things that can happen.
12:07:37 <ynpvisitor111> OF
14:38:33 <ynpvisitor44> The camer came on for 10 seconds and I got to see Castle and Daisy. :-/
15:04:09 <Cooper1> wait, I mean I am back
15:04:13 <Cooper1> that was awesome
15:04:40 <Cooper1> I went up to Golden Co to see my brother who goes to college up there...
15:05:10 <Cooper1> and I got to take a "tour" of the USGS Building that is Restricted to most people
15:05:29 <ynpvisitor44> >(
15:07:02 <Cooper1> oh
15:07:07 <Cooper1> I marked my self away
15:09:11 <Cooper1> I got left a little behind staring at the live seismographs for YNP, which apparently they hold there in-case the YVO goes offline:D
15:09:23 <Cooper1> I know I should not be this exited, but I am
15:10:28 <ynpvisitor44> I would be excited if I had taken the tour. I totally understand where you are coming from.
15:12:23 <Cooper1> haha
15:12:26 <Cooper1> It was not a tour
15:12:41 <Cooper1> it is restricted to all non USGS personal
15:12:45 <Cooper1> but...
15:12:51 <ynpvisitor44> nice
15:12:57 <Cooper1> my brothers roommate works there
15:13:07 <Cooper1> so, he let us in for about an hour
15:13:28 <Cooper1> gave us a nice tour, let us see the live seismographs, and all of there awesome looking computers and maps
15:13:58 <Cooper1> the biggest question I have is still, why in Golden Colorado, and not somewhere else that is stable
15:15:12 <Cooper1> I hate Graham:p he gets to wait for all the geysers, while we are stuck suffering with this "cam"
15:17:09 <Cooper1> Shoot, Hurricane Warning now issued for the Eastern Coast of Florida, right where Kat livs is where Dorian will be its closest to the storm, it currently is sitting over the Bahamas with 185 mph winds, and 910 mb
15:18:32 <Cooper1> I hope Kat left
15:39:30 <ynpvisitor31> Cooper rambles on. FFS, he knows Kat left.
15:51:20 <Cooper1> no way, the cam is moving
15:52:50 <Cooper1> Bulger
15:53:07 <Cooper1> minor
16:14:42 <Cooper1> Grand
16:14:43 <Cooper1> .
16:14:43 <Cooper1> ..
16:14:44 <Cooper1> .
16:14:45 <Cooper1> .
16:25:45 <Cooper1> b1 done
16:27:34 <Cooper1> T2Q
16:27:42 <Cooper1> so that was end b2
16:32:53 <ynpvisitor109> OF 1632 wc
16:43:06 <ynpvisitor88> BEEHIVE
16:43:31 <ynpvisitor88> No Indy, and of course the cam goes down
16:45:28 <ynpvisitor11> I have a still of BH and a rainbow on the right of the screen.
16:45:30 <ynpvisitor116> :P
16:45:45 <ynpvisitor116> Rainbow far right
16:45:58 <ynpvisitor11> If it weren't for the hoover circle, it would be a nice picture.
16:46:04 <Cooper1> woah
16:46:09 <Cooper1> Awesome
16:46:13 <Cooper1> WOHO
16:46:16 <Cooper1> And Gone
16:47:55 <ynpvisitor11> and a tall daisy
16:48:21 <ynpvisitor116> Cam works for aisy but not BH.
16:48:32 <ynpvisitor11> Does not look like daisy
16:49:24 <ynpvisitor11> Did not act like Daisy either.
16:50:08 <Cooper1> 11, ?
16:50:26 <Cooper1> just curious about what you mean?
16:50:45 <ynpvisitor11> It was tall and wide, like a fountain geyser, not a cone geyser.
16:50:59 <ynpvisitor44> camera came on about halfway through BH, dropped and then came on again just in time to catch the last couple minutes of Daisy
16:51:17 <Cooper1> oh, I guess it must do that sometimes
16:51:28 <Cooper1> once again, the cam pains us
16:52:56 <ynpvisitor88> Daisy is not a Cone Geyser
16:53:45 <Cooper1> 88, I am not arguing with that, but just saying, some would like to argue that
16:59:10 <Michael> Darn, really should have come here an hour ago.
17:00:57 <Cooper1> haha
17:05:02 <ynpvisitor44> I think today was the worst I've had. Otehr than the BH, Daisy at the end, I was't able the move the camera even 10 times during my 7 hour shift. Too many outages.
17:05:45 <ynpvisitor44> Needless to say, most eruptions were missed.
17:06:19 <ynpvisitor501c> Perhaps it should be pointed at OF and left until it is working properly. I have hopes for the new radio.
17:07:27 <Michael> Wildfire near Jackson.
17:08:22 <ynpvisitor44> pointing to OF would be nice but the current operator will need to decide
17:08:47 <ynpvisitor501c> We'll stay on Aurum for a while
17:09:23 <Cooper1> :thumbsup:
17:11:10 <ynpvisitor501c> I have hope that GO is at Aurum and that we haven't missed it
17:12:13 <Cooper1> I agree, don't think Graham has gotten one yet this trip
17:12:24 <Cooper1> yet
17:12:35 <ynpvisitor105> he is NOT a fan of Aurum
17:12:44 <Cooper1> Graham?
17:12:49 <ynpvisitor105> yes
17:13:03 <Cooper1> what makes you say that?
17:13:12 <ynpvisitor501c> I have always found him a person of good taste :)
17:13:19 <ynpvisitor105> a conversation I had with him
17:13:24 <Cooper1> I mean it is not one of his favorites but...
17:13:51 <Cooper1> it is about all that could be going of for a while, and I think he loves Aurum, I mean it is a Geyser
17:13:53 <ynpvisitor105> I'm guessing Graham has left the basin
17:14:08 <Cooper1> I bet he is on the hill
17:20:11 <LindaG> Hello everybody
17:20:18 <Cooper1> Hi Linda
17:20:25 <LindaG> Cooper1, hi
17:20:27 <Cooper1> we are waiting for Aurum
17:20:40 <LindaG> 👍
17:21:52 <LindaG> I love aurum
17:22:14 <Cooper1> Who is not a fan of Aurum, can you think of one?
17:25:42 <ynpvisitor501c> A "sitter." That's a good sign
17:33:36 <LindaG> Uh soo
17:33:46 <LindaG> *soon
17:34:38 <ynpvisitor501c> 20 or so minutes before we have to turn to Fluff
17:35:12 <LindaG> Its always the way
17:38:15 <ynpvisitor501c> It would be nice to catch Aurum since this is the last one before dark.
17:39:00 <LindaG> It would and it is so quick
17:40:09 <LindaG> And technology works against us
17:40:18 <LindaG> 🙁
17:43:51 <Cooper1> Pump
17:43:53 <Cooper1> Nice one
17:45:26 <LindaG> Do it aurum!
17:45:50 <Cooper1> and you know that once it is OF's turn it is going to stay alive just long enough to get moved to OF but not back
17:46:23 <Cooper1> any bet on whether Graham, or Betty/Thomas are there at Aurum?
17:47:41 <ynpvisitor501c> Watch and see who posts Aurum :)
17:47:47 <Cooper1> or maybe Craig?
17:47:55 <Cooper1> oh, yeah right
17:48:44 <Cooper1> good Aurum, nice splash, now keep it going
17:48:49 <Cooper1> and do in the next 7 mins
17:49:27 <Cooper> yes
17:49:35 <Cooper> keep em comin'
17:49:44 <Cooper> Good
17:50:37 <Cooper> Good
17:50:41 <Cooper> Good Aurm
17:50:42 <Cooper> yes
17:50:44 <Cooper> ...
17:50:44 <Cooper> .
17:50:45 <Cooper> .
17:50:45 <Cooper> .
17:50:48 <Cooper> Nice
17:50:50 <Cooper> WOHO
17:51:03 <Cooper> and we got the start on the cam!!!
17:51:41 <LindaG> Yay
17:52:04 <Cooper> nice
17:52:17 <Cooper> We got the whole thing, the start, middle, and end on the cam
17:52:35 <Cooper> Clearly I need to Nudge it again next time the cam is up
17:52:41 <Cooper> and Aurum is near
17:52:44 <LindaG> That was great thx camop
17:52:57 <Cooper> yeah, thx
17:53:18 <ynpvisitor501c> Time was 1750. I hope we get a basin report
17:53:58 <ynpvisitor501c> & I think that was Betty in the white hat.
17:54:07 <Cooper> me too
17:54:18 <LindaG> Oh nice she's seen alot
17:55:54 <Cooper> OF
18:00:51 <Cooper> Looking again at SB notes, my Monday Predict @ 1500 could be VERY close again
18:01:27 <Cooper> my last 2 were, 137 Minutes off, and 54 Minutes Off, So I hope this one is less than 100 minutes off
18:02:53 <LindaG> Well keep working on it
18:04:07 <LindaG> No in basin reports yet
18:21:31 <LindaG> Bulger
18:21:57 <LindaG> It's pretty high
18:23:48 <LindaG> And gone
19:00:41 <Cooper> :daisy:
19:01:06 <Cooper> the cam has been a little better the past hour
19:01:11 <Cooper> or 2
19:01:26 <Cooper> Linda, are you still here?
19:04:18 <ynpvisitor501c> Worked out OK
19:32:23 <Cooper> OF
19:34:49 <ynpvisitor501c> Pillar of fire
19:35:10 <ynpvisitor501c> Very cool
19:53:20 <Cooper> Arty
19:53:23 <Cooper> ie
20:08:31 <ynpvisitor501c> Not going to zoom on Lion. Cam too squirrelly. We will stay here for 40” and then finish with Fluffy.
20:29:39 <Cooper> lc
20:34:40 <Cooper> Well, I am off to bed, see you all tomorrow
21:10:54 <ynpvisitor501c> OF 2110 wc ie
