04:55:43 <Rice> -9, damn that is cold
05:04:07 <Ryan (desk)> Weird spikes on the norris temp loggers
05:05:17 <Ryan (desk)> OF 0505
05:13:02 <Rice> Wish we could figure out what feature caused the big temp spikes in Tantulas Creek, I am sure with some reasearch it could be figured out.
05:29:25 <Ryan (desk)> Lots of steam at Cascade...
05:29:56 <Joe> Lots of steam from Cascade thid morning
05:30:11 <ynpvisitor28> I see it
05:31:01 <ynpvisitor34> maybe the earthquakes woke it up, that's what happened last time
05:31:45 <ynpvisitor28> Maybe bronze?
05:31:52 <Joe> Can't get close, cam wont focus
05:32:37 <Ryan (desk)> Guess we wait for daylight
05:33:06 <ynpvisitor28> I thought dome earlier
05:33:15 <Ryan (desk)> I texted Micah just to give him a heads up.
05:33:32 <Ryan (desk)> Its really cold out, so that probably helps it look big.
05:33:40 <Ryan (desk)> But that is a lot of steam from the runoff channels.
05:34:05 <ynpvisitor28> A lot of steam on upper right i thought
05:34:49 <ynpvisitor28> A peep
05:35:00 <Ryan (desk)> Shine that light on Cascade! lol
05:35:08 <ynpvisitor28> Is that micah?
05:35:20 <Ryan (desk)> No, hes still in bed and will be for a bit. He's gotta work today
05:35:45 <Ryan (desk)> His response: "I cant make it out today, and it usualy lasts more than a day.... is it really 9 below outside??"
05:36:17 <ynpvisitor28> Its 5:30 and -9, yikes
05:36:53 <Ryan (desk)> That looks like a lot of steam, vertical steam.
05:37:42 <Joe> The peep with the light must have been checking Cascade, unusual for anyone to be out there this time of day and year
05:37:54 <LindaG> Thought I'd take a name. Morning all!
05:38:30 <LindaG> I want to meet whoever is hardy enough to be out there
05:38:44 <Micah - waking > I highly doubt anyone got out there in 15 minutes since it was first spotted.
05:39:02 <Ryan (desk)> I think they just happened to be there. But there were lights on the BW.
05:39:06 <Micah - waking > I also doubt anyone in this village except me cares enough to go running out there.
05:39:12 <Ryan (desk)> I wonder if they heard water cascading and shown a light on it
05:39:17 <Micah - waking > Especially right now.
05:40:29 <Ryan (desk)> Steam is slowing down
05:41:27 <Joe> I have done a lot of dark cold viewing with the cam, this is the most steam I've ever seen from Cascade
05:41:50 <Ryan (desk)> I dont think we will know for sure until daylight.
05:41:59 <Ryan (desk)> If it was ten degrees warmer I'd call a start haha
05:42:11 <Joe> :)
05:44:03 <LindaG> Maybe the anemones became one 😉
05:45:54 <Joe> Nothing to see elsewhere, I'll stick here for a bit
05:47:58 <LindaG> Ok, let me know when you want me to take cam
05:49:29 <Joe> You can take it any time you want, Linda
05:49:36 <Ryan (desk)> I assume that Cascade would take precendent over OF?
05:49:46 <Ryan (desk)> Though I think we can see both
05:50:03 <LindaG> Ok I will
05:50:52 <ynpvisitor84> Got it
05:51:17 <Ryan (desk)> steam is gone again
05:51:34 <ynpvisitor34> last time it was active they put it on the front page of the summer newspaper. Said it was every 3 minutes - but it slowed down considerably and the visitors were mostly skunked
05:51:54 <Ryan (desk)> I think from the 1990s that the inital activity of cascade was extremely frequent. Like every two or five minutes.
05:52:01 <Ryan (desk)> 34, jinx :D
05:52:31 <Joe> We had heavy fog all night, nothing seen nor reported :(
05:53:10 <ynpvisitor34> yep, saw a lot of Indicators from that side!
05:54:29 <LindaGp> Look to right around bronze
05:54:56 <LindaGp> Seems steam from there also
05:55:51 <Ryan (desk)> sunrise needs to be now
05:58:18 <Ryan (desk)> heavy steam is back again. Could be Chinese Spring wafting
06:01:49 <Joe> Dome id erupting
06:02:24 <LindaGp> Thought I saw it earlier
06:02:28 <Joe> No I'm a biy off i think
06:03:10 <LindaGp> So hard to tell
06:03:56 <Joe> It was dome it is to the left in this view
06:04:44 <LindaGp> I keep thinking ita something else besides cascade
06:05:15 <ynpvisitor34> yep, saw a lot of Indicators from that side!
06:05:57 <LindaGp> Where's that guy with the flashlight we could ask him
06:06:22 <Micah - waking > It looks like it's too the right and up from the actual crater of Cascade.
06:06:31 <Micah - waking > I'm guessing Little Squirt is in eruption.
06:06:37 <ynpvisitor34> woops typed that one a long time ago and it just showed up
06:06:44 <LindaGp> Inthink bronze
06:07:29 <Micah - waking > Bronze doesnt erupt in a fashion to put out a plume like that. But little squirt is pretty steady.
06:07:30 <Ryan (desk)> Thats a lot of setam for LS, even on a day like this.
06:07:41 <Ryan (desk)> And I guess Bronze is an option, but I thiunk Bronze is too far right
06:08:38 <Micah - waking > Right now I see two sources of steam. One from the left and one from the right.
06:08:53 <Micah - waking > I think they were combining and the one on the right is Little Squirt.
06:09:09 <Ryan (desk)> Guess we will know when the sun comes up
06:09:28 <Ryan (desk)> Our answers could be as simple as waiting a hour :D
06:10:56 <LindaGp> Seems steam just right of dark area
06:11:08 <LindaGp> Started again
06:12:03 <Ryan (desk)> Im not used to seeing intermittent steam from there that obscures the view of Geyser Hill.
06:12:12 <Ryan (desk)> Dome 0612ie
06:12:20 <Kat> Hi Linda
06:12:30 <LindaGp> Kat, hi
06:13:00 <LindaGp> we are staring at steam from cascade area
06:13:01 <Kat> Sitting in the hospital, having procedure today!!
06:13:19 <Kat> Ready to get it over with. I'm starving!!
06:13:26 <Joe> Good lock!
06:13:27 <LindaGp> Kat, Oh hope it was schedules
06:13:42 <Kat> Yes scheduled
06:13:52 <Kat> Thanks Joe
06:14:08 <LindaGp> Yes good luck
06:14:19 <Kat> Is it foggy
06:14:54 <Ryan (desk)> And then it stops
06:15:11 <LindaGp> I don't think so. A lot of steam from area around arcade trying to figure out if it was erupting
06:15:59 <CraigC> Kat, best wishes
06:16:17 <Ryan (desk)> If it was erupting we will know when it gets day light. It doesnt usually one and done.
06:16:26 <Joe> Steam at the arcade makes playing tough, Linda
06:16:35 <Ryan (desk)> :love: Kat, message us when you can afterwards!
06:16:58 <LindaGp> Joe, 😝
06:17:03 <LindaGp>
06:17:40 <LindaGp> *cascade
06:17:48 <Joe> :)
06:19:11 <LindaGp> View is getting worse not better
06:19:12 <CraigC> maybe we'll have a Steamboat today
06:19:59 <LindaGp> CraigC, that would be nice
06:20:04 <LindaGp> CraigC, hi
06:20:13 <CraigC> hey Linda
06:20:15 <Joe> Linda, there is a name for people like me, but i think the hat would censor it :)
06:20:26 <Joe> Hi Craig
06:20:31 <CraigC> censoring hats.... dang
06:20:35 <CraigC> hey Joe
06:21:12 <LindaGp> hat?
06:21:25 <Joe> typo, Chat :)
06:21:58 <LindaGp> 😊 ah it's not just me
06:22:12 <Joe> Nope
06:23:42 <Joe> If Joe dishes it out, Joe must also be able ti take it.
06:23:59 <LindaGp> So there is a much bigger dark area to right if cascade
06:24:14 <LindaGp> Joe, 😊
06:24:23 <Joe> And I will not throw a tantrum :)
06:29:02 <Joe> I was looking for more steam from the river, maybe the distance and the amount of water cooled enough not to creat a lot of steam
06:29:59 <Joe> I think we can see both OF and Cascade
06:30:02 <Ryan (desk)> I think Cascades water just drops right into the river. Not sure yhou'd see much steam except on the hill directly below it.
06:30:44 <LindaGp> Lost focus
06:31:29 <Joe> Yep
06:31:36 <LindaGp> Isnthatberupting?
06:31:37 <Ryan (desk)> OF 0631ie?
06:31:46 <LindaGp> Yikes
06:31:48 <Joe> T
06:31:52 <Joe> yes
06:32:13 <LindaGp> of ie
06:36:17 <LindaGp> White steam from cascade area
06:36:26 <LindaGp> See it?
06:36:38 <LindaGp> .
06:37:19 <Ryan (desk)> I see fog
06:37:54 <LindaGp> It died down now. Seemed like a lot of steam going right to left
06:38:11 <LindaGp> Lost focus again
06:39:27 <Joe> For the record: first sighting of something happening at cascade was ~0517 as the fog cleared a little
06:40:16 <Joe> Dome was also steaming at that time
06:40:26 <LindaGp> Joe, See that real light area I think something is erupting
06:40:38 <LindaGp> Might be dome
06:41:18 <LindaGp> Something is creating alot of white steam that's drifting over hill
06:41:48 <Joe> Yrs there has been a lot of steam from dome since but too foggy to call I think
06:44:18 <LindaGp> Think Thats too low for dome
06:44:54 <Ryan (desk)> I see GF Geyser.
06:45:00 <Ryan (desk)> Gray Fog :D
06:45:33 <LindaGp> 😊
06:46:53 <LindaGp> That might be LS
06:47:04 <Joe> I looked at my recording and as Micah said LS was also in play at the time
06:47:54 <Ryan (desk)> Micah was in bed watching the same webcam as us lol
06:48:01 <Joe> And that white also looked like LS
06:48:04 <Ryan (desk)> I really think we need to wait for sunlight
06:49:01 <LindaGp> Oh bit its so much fun guessing 😉
06:49:11 <Joe> Ah! So Micah has good eyes :)
06:50:08 <LindaGp> As chancellor said he is the greatest of prophets
06:50:59 <Joe> 10-4
06:53:12 <Joe> This is the same ad the wonderful night view that i had all night :)
06:53:29 <Joe> ad=as
06:53:42 <LindaGp> Now we have colored fog
06:54:25 <LindaGp> Oh no OF is gong
06:54:41 <Joe> A Christmas fog
06:54:50 <LindaGp> *gone
06:54:56 <Joe> red green yellow
06:55:09 <LindaGp> 😊
06:55:27 <Joe> oh, and blue
06:55:32 <LindaGp> 🎄🎄🎄
06:55:46 <ynpvisitor109> Linda, OF = ???:p:p:p
06:57:36 <ynpvisitor110>
06:58:12 <LindaGp> Hi cooper
06:58:26 <Cooper> Maybe Linda G = Linda Gong?:p:p
06:58:28 <Cooper> Hi Linda
06:59:31 <LindaGp> Cooper, 😊 were watching fog
07:00:14 <Cooper> well, I will take fog, I am taking a break from studying for finals(studies about 5 hours a day for the past week)
07:00:23 <LindaGp> Now snow
07:01:45 <LindaGp> Cooper, that's a lot, good to clear the head
07:02:27 <Cooper> I am seeing Matrices in my dreams.
07:02:32 <Cooper> :p
07:03:22 <LindaGp> So I'm being good showing OF
07:05:30 <Ryan (desk)> For those not on my FB...
07:05:42 <Ryan (desk)> Currently writing the journal entry for this day.
07:06:59 <Cooper> Nice Pic Ryan
07:07:44 <Ryan (desk)>
07:07:48 <Ryan (desk)> following a very nice Beehive eruption
07:09:19 <LindaGp> Ryan (desk), that's a wonderful shot
07:09:39 <Ryan (desk)> Thanks! Lots of practice, and a fia ramount of luck.
07:09:42 <Ryan (desk)> fair amount*
07:09:59 <LindaGp> They both are nice
07:10:37 <Ryan (desk)> The months of heavy geyser photography came in handy at Steamboat. I later commented that the 125,000 photos I took in the summer of 2014 were all practice for the 450 I took on June 4, 2018.
07:11:05 <Mike J> I like "fir ramount". Say it with the right kind of accent, and it is like a soupcon of luck
07:11:23 <Mike J> And then I misstyped the misstype
07:11:31 <Mike J> Or would that be "mistype"
07:11:37 <Mike J> I'm going back to sleep
07:11:37 <Joe> I like the perfect "1" in the Mount Sheridan photo
07:12:19 <Ryan (desk)> I think that Mount Holmes. "!"?
07:12:21 <Ryan (desk)> Oh in my logo
07:12:43 <Ryan (desk)> morning of my birthdya, 9 October 2019
07:13:22 <LindaGp> Oh nice coyote, giving you the look
07:13:25 <Ryan (desk)> Yall should be able to see the rest of my photos from those links
07:13:41 <ynpvisitor110> this
07:13:42 <Ryan (desk)> My aerial photos are in there, too
07:13:44 <LindaGp> Thanks
07:14:13 <Ryan (desk)> Feel free to share links back here with comments or questions
07:14:42 <LindaGp> I can see the walk way
07:16:05 <Cooper> So you like to do spelunking?
07:16:28 <Ryan (desk)> Caving, yeah I like it some. ;)
07:18:21 <LindaGp> Ah sunrise
07:18:41 <Ryan (desk)> Actually its more like my life. If you cut my arm off I'd bleed mud and caffiene.
07:19:09 <Cooper> Ryan (desk), hahahahahahahaha
07:19:15 <Ryan (desk)> Woah colors!
07:19:36 <LindaGp> And spit out a few bats 😉
07:20:04 <Ryan (desk)> nah i try not to eat them lol
07:20:12 <LindaGp> Pretty colors
07:20:23 <LindaGp> Ryan (desk), ☺
07:20:25 <Joe> Ryan, I kinda lost track, did you finish mapping that cave you were mapping some time ago??
07:21:28 <Ryan (desk)> Kind of. I finished the survey but never finished the map.
07:21:58 <Ryan (desk)> I needed to restart the map, which was frustrating, and then politics got involved and I burned out. I am restarting the final push to finish it sometime next week.
07:23:22 <Joe> Ah, I could not remember, politics in anything makes things miserable
07:23:29 <LindaGp> Nice
07:23:50 <Ryan (desk)> Wow!!
07:24:01 <Joe> Good view
07:24:03 <Ryan (desk)> Keep an eye out there for the sunrise
07:24:18 <LindaGp> Purdy
07:24:36 <LindaGp> Not a typo🙄
07:24:47 <Cooper> Thats a first
07:24:52 <Cooper> :p
07:25:01 <LindaGp> 😝😝
07:25:24 <Ryan (desk)> That is stunning.
07:26:01 <LindaGp> Kinda makes you wanna be there 😉
07:26:16 <Ryan (desk)> The fog was enough...
07:26:40 <Ryan (desk)> Will we get a sunburst?
07:31:46 <Ryan (desk)> Cascade looks icy
07:31:47 <LindaGp> Looks like LA IS active
07:32:11 <LindaGp> well everything is steaming
07:32:39 <Cooper> Wow, I saw Canada is Icy, instead of cascade
07:33:30 <LindaGp> runoff steamy
07:35:01 <Ryan (desk)> I dont think we were seeing Cascade :(
07:35:53 <LindaGp> Might have been A combo of all of these
07:36:08 <LindaGp> Improbable very steamy
07:36:50 <LindaGp> Anenomes active
07:37:03 <Ryan (desk)> I think it was just steamy.
07:37:20 <Ryan (desk)> Or it was chinese spring wafting over
07:37:23 <LindaGp> Back to sunrise
07:37:32 <Cooper> Well, time to head to school. Баяртай. (Good Bye in Mongolian)
07:37:37 <Ryan (desk)> Dang

07:55:08 <LindaGp> should I enter castle?
07:55:11 <Betty> Bbl
07:56:20 <Joe> Timing may be way off, might mess up tje database
07:57:09 <LindaGp> Joe, ok I'll leave it
07:58:19 <Ryan (desk)> you could leave a note
07:58:34 <Ryan (desk)> Also note that Castle can look like its in steam phase even when its not when its this cold
07:58:40 <ynpvisitor118> Lake cam sunrise over fog is nice too
07:59:18 <Ryan (desk)> hahaha electric peak is now bunsen peak thanks to a bus
07:59:34 <LindaGp> wow Washburn lookout nice too
08:00:28 <LindaGp> lake covered in fog, HOW COOL
08:00:59 <LindaGp> ok have to concentrate ☺
08:05:24 <Joe1> Sunrise over Yellowstone (~10 min)
08:06:20 <LindaGp> OF
08:07:23 <Lori S> Thanks for the link Joe1. I was getting ready for work then.
08:07:49 <Joe> Lori, YW
08:08:18 <LindaGp> hello Lori hello
08:08:31 <Joe> :)
08:09:05 <LindaGp> the early birds got the worm this morning
08:09:34 <Ryan (desk)> Morning Lori
08:09:59 <Ryan (desk)> I think your SB trace is an icing problem, personally. But I do note that theres 5deg temp spikes in all three Norris loggers.
08:10:18 <Lori S> Hello Lifbda Hello
08:10:24 <Lori S> Hi Ryan
08:10:37 <Ryan (desk)> Also a dip in both Echinus and SB at the same time
08:11:01 <LindaGp> I guess fog is lifting - literally
08:11:25 <Lori S> Ryan (desk), I thought icing too but wasn't sure enough to mention it. Whatever that means.
08:11:40 <LindaGp> little cub
08:11:43 <Ryan (desk)> Cicing, or not mentioning it?
08:11:44 <LindaGp> ie
08:12:34 <Lori S> not mentioning
08:12:52 <Lori S> lest I get laughed at
08:13:08 <Ryan (desk)> Oh, well generally any time the base temp stays hard lined at 32F its probably ice relaterd
08:13:25 <Lori S> See, didn't know that
08:13:40 <Ryan (desk)> When water (or anything) passes from one phase to another it stays at the transition phase.
08:13:54 <Ryan (desk)> Ie: a mix of water and ice* will always stay at 32deg.
08:14:04 <LindaGp> Looks like steam at bee
08:14:08 <Lori S> And then there's the "hot water freezes faster than cold water"
08:14:13 <Ryan (desk)> *obviously you can have hot water and ice and the mix can be warm
08:14:31 <Lori S> bubbler steeam
08:14:50 <Lori S> Of course, it's below zero so...
08:15:10 <Ryan (desk)> BUT: you'll never have a mix of ice and water thats below 32F if the temp is dropping. The ice will stay at 32 until all of the water freezes and then it begins to drop below 32
08:15:14 <Ryan (desk)> Thats a general overview of it
08:15:20 <Ryan (desk)> Little Squirt
08:15:33 <Lori S> Ryan (desk), :thumbsup:
08:15:46 <Lori S> Any chemists here?
08:15:59 <Ryan (desk)> TLDR: If you see runoff spikes and they dont go below 32, but rather hardline stop at it, then ice must be invlved.
08:16:36 <LindaGp> lion inthink
08:16:44 <LindaGp> Oh yeah
08:16:50 <Ryan (desk)> yup
08:17:26 <Ryan (desk)>
08:17:29 <Ryan (desk)> Here ya go, Lori.
08:17:48 <Ryan (desk)> Stage 1: cooling liquids, Stage 2: mix of liquid and solid ice. Stage 3: cooling ice.
08:18:12 <LindaGp> wasn't going 6 minutes ago
08:18:44 <Ryan (desk)> pretty
08:19:09 <LindaGp> Might be ini
08:19:26 <Lori S> Thanks for the link
08:19:38 <Lori S> LindaGp, are you driving?
08:19:57 <LindaGp> yup
08:20:01 <Lori S> the cam I mean
08:20:16 <Lori S> cool

08:26:13 <LindaGp> lol
08:26:15 <LindaGp> daisy
08:26:23 <LindaGp> maybe
08:26:44 <LindaGp> guess it's castlw
08:28:31 <LindaGp> no one entered little squirt
08:28:57 <Lori S> want me to?
08:29:43 <LindaGp> I just did
08:30:41 <Lori S> :thumbsup:
08:31:08 <Joe1> Was it decided what this was yesterday??
08:31:39 <Cooper> Hi Lori
08:31:57 <Lori S> Hi mr C
08:32:09 <Lori S> Joe1, what do you think it is?
08:32:15 <LindaGp> Joe1, I think so
08:33:00 <Joe> I have no Idea, and i did not hear what was decided
08:33:08 <Ryan (desk)> Looks like Crystal Spring.
08:33:17 <Ryan (desk)> It can rise, rock, and slosh.
08:33:47 <Lori S> Ryan (desk), sounds like a college student at a party
08:33:53 <LindaGp> they said rift would be in front of grand
08:34:02 <Joe> Thanks, was rifts location decided in that photo
08:34:32 <Ryan (desk)> Oh wait, was that steam emanating from behind the pine trees?
08:34:35 <Joe> thanks Linda, and Ryan
08:35:04 <Ryan (desk)> If its behind the pine trees my guess is West Triplet. If its in front of it and in the BW loop of the Sawmill Complex then I guess Crystal.
08:35:44 <Lori S> behind, i think
08:35:55 <Lori S> isn't WT slightly left of there?
08:36:40 <Ryan (desk)> That was less than 2hrs before Grand, and in the window. It couldve been WT
08:38:21 <Joe1> here is the video
08:39:22 <Ryan (desk)> That is definitely WT.
08:39:44 <Lori S> ok
08:40:07 <Joe> thanks
08:42:32 <LindaGp> squatch is frosty this morning
08:44:09 <Cooper> BSB?
08:45:27 <Joe1> I like this Sasquatch view
08:45:39 <Ryan (desk)> At this temp, BSB would look like Indy
08:46:08 <Lori S> Joe1, nice one
08:50:41 <LindaGp> Joe1, that's the best
08:50:41 <Lori S> So, I used the new toy Eric told me about yesterday and discovered, if it were possible to see SB from here, it would appear behind and slightly right of Bee :)
08:51:35 <LindaGp> 😊
08:53:32 <LindaGp> that sunrise almost looks fake
08:55:25 <Lori S> LindaGp, that's what folks say about the view of the Alaska Range and Denali on a blue sky day
08:55:59 <ynpvisitor76> I've seen that from Fairbanks. (Alaska Range) It's amazing.
08:56:25 <Lori S> human
08:57:10 <Lori S> ynpvisitor76, I used to drive tour busses on the Parks Hwy. Blue sky days were rare but gorgeous
08:57:47 <Lori S> and btw I loved Fairbanks
08:58:15 <Lori S> my kind of town
08:59:30 <Ryan (desk)> off to lunch, later
08:59:51 <Lori S> Bye Ryan
09:00:18 <ynpvisitor76> Cool, Lori. BTW, I will be nicknaming myself shortly.
09:01:14 <ynpvisitor76> I was in Fairbanks quite briefly. Drove to Denali, and into the park 13 miles, glimpsed the peak. Then the weather shut things down.
09:01:29 <ynpvisitor76> It was autumn in Alaska, though -- good colors.
09:01:46 <Lori S> ynpvisitor76, best time for Broad Pass!
09:02:03 <Lori S> If you got a Denali view in a short visit, ypou are very lucky
09:06:27 <LindaGp> go little squirt
09:09:58 <Lori S> mice light there
09:10:41 <Lori S> *nice :)
09:10:42 <Dave from B™> eek
09:11:07 <Lori S> Dave from B™, :p
09:11:20 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, morning dave
09:11:35 <Lori S> how can it quit me when i just typed something?
09:11:45 <LindaGp> Dave from B™, gotta check out Joe's video of sunrise above
09:11:56 <Lori S> Yes, morning Dave from B™
09:12:17 <LindaGp> oh wow

09:12:27 <LindaGp> grotto?

09:12:39 <Dave from B™> Beautiful colors this morning
09:12:46 <LindaGp> .or grand
09:12:48 <Lori S> Dave from B™, ah
09:13:15 <LindaGp> what is this?
09:13:16 <LindaGp> .
09:13:17 <LindaGp> .
09:13:34 <Lori S> LindaGp, steam :p
09:13:45 <Dave from B™> a cloud?
09:13:49 <LindaGp> 😝
09:14:05 <Lori S> zoom out?
09:14:23 <Lori S> our luck it would be Giant with this cold
09:14:36 <Lori S> But I think Garnd?
09:14:40 <Lori S> Grand
09:14:54 <LindaGp> I think grand
09:15:10 <LindaGp> I've seen it stay low in the cold
09:15:19 <Lori S> cloud seem close like Grand
09:15:57 <Lori S> is that Spasmodic in front?
09:16:12 <LindaGp> yes
09:16:44 <Lori S> imagine standing at Grand right now. Brr
09:17:38 <LindaGp> that has its own mushroom cloud lol
09:17:50 <Lori S> just beautiful
09:18:37 <Lori S> if Spasmodic is that tall, that may not have been Grand
09:18:56 <Katie> GRRR Home Depot and Traeger are both on my poop list this morning (separate issues). Just annoyance with Traeger but outright ire with Home Depot.
09:19:25 <Lori S> Katie, do tell
09:19:40 <LindaGp> Lori S, agree, we are at 19 hrs for grand
09:20:13 <LindaGp> almost 20 actually
09:20:26 <Katie> Bought a dishwasher 2 weeks ago. Scheduled for delivery/installation/removal of old today. Dudes showed up with it but refused to install it.
09:20:29 <LindaGp> lion ie
09:21:47 <LindaGp> Katie, oh wow
09:21:48 <Katie> First they said that wasn't in the order (hah! - we paid for all of that, and have proof). Then, upon seeing our proof, some bs about floor level (never an issue before). I told my husband that if I had been there I'd have told them to just take it and get out.
09:22:05 <Katie> I told him to call them and tell them to come get it. Breach of contract, deal done.
09:22:23 <LindaGp> my screens not big enough for these plumes
09:22:37 <Joe> n that Grand 0912 ie it is right time
09:22:44 <Lori S> LindaGp, awful problem to have :)
09:22:50 <Katie> I said "you know, Fred's advertises same day, we should have given them a shot, this isn't the first time we have had this sort of bs with Home Depot."
09:22:55 <LindaGp> Lori S, yeah
09:23:03 <LindaGp> Joe, ok
09:23:36 <Lori S> Katie, yup, I would've refused delivery too
09:23:44 <LindaGp> entered it
09:24:08 <Katie> Oh, and installers saying we couldn't dispute the install fee for service never performed over the phone, we'd have to go to the store. GRRRRRR
09:24:19 <LindaGp> here come the steam
09:24:19 <Lori S> LindaGp, Joe already did
09:24:32 <LindaGp> oh
09:24:56 <Lori S> Katie, dispute the charge on your credit card. customer usually wins those.
09:25:55 <Joe> I typed I entered Grand but it did not show up that way ???
09:26:21 <Lori S> Joe, I see it
09:26:28 <Katie> It's a Home Depot credit card. So... (one that will be closed today)
09:26:46 <LindaGp> Joe, sure, sure 😉
09:27:29 <Lori S> Katie, oh dear
09:29:44 <Lori S> Katie, does the dw comw with a warranty? Call and tell them it's noit working and you need someone to come "fix" it.
09:29:53 <Lori S> *come with
09:30:30 <Joe> I think we caught grand about 2/3 into eruption, the start muat have been impressive
09:32:12 <LindaGp> ok I'm on old faithful
09:32:39 <Lori S> LindaGp, It's there somewher
09:33:01 <LindaGp> can see it.on ststic
09:34:14 <LindaGp> an snow
09:35:39 <Joe> My experience with Home Depot is they charge you for installation but use another party to do the install, which was never the same day as the delivery, when you complain Home Depot and ite installing company point fingersat each other GRRRR
09:36:30 <Lori S> looks like gray pea soup
09:36:42 <Lori S> got some work to do. bbl
09:36:50 <LindaGp> I thi k OF is erupting but I wouldn't bet my life on it
09:37:15 <Lori S> I agree Linda
09:38:04 <LindaGp> I entered ie and I'll leave it at that
09:39:41 <Joe> Looks good to me, But what do I know :)
09:40:11 <LindaGp> people were watching on static
09:40:47 <Joe> I looked both places, good entry
09:40:48 <LindaGp> ice crystals in the air
09:41:30 <LindaGp> Joe, 👍
09:42:23 <LindaGp> well I guess we'll watch fluffy
09:44:24 <ynpvisitor16> Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
09:45:12 <LindaGp> for sure
09:45:45 <LindaGp> somewhere above is a video of an outstanding sunrise
09:47:52 <Ozzie> I still had the sunrise video in a window:
09:48:29 <LindaGp> well there's the sun
09:48:34 <LindaGp> Ozzie, thx
09:56:10 <Eric> Lake looks like a painting
09:56:13 <Eric> and good morning
09:57:50 <Eric> Looking on static history, it seems the fog is rolling in and out quite often
09:57:52 <LindaGp> bab
09:57:56 <LindaGp> bsb
09:59:06 <LindaGp> Eric, morning
09:59:21 <LindaGp> check out sunrise video above
09:59:26 <Joe> I'm off to see the Wizards, but I cant find the yellow brick road.
09:59:32 <Eric> I saw it...pretty awesome video joe
09:59:39 <Eric> Good luck Joe
09:59:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Good luck
09:59:54 <Joe> I hope Kat's surgery goes well
09:59:54 <Eric> BTW, it's Jeff's birthday if he pops in here today
10:00:19 <LindaGp> Kevin L™🌵, controls released
10:00:34 <Eric> Release the hounds!
10:00:42 <Joe> Linda did a good job getting that view for us.
10:00:52 <ynpvisitor4> Joe, thx
10:01:21 <Kevin L™🌵> Guess it is time for me to drive in this fog.
10:01:38 <LindaGp> good luck with that
10:01:50 <LindaGp> lion is active, grand went
10:01:54 <Joe> Beware, There are Rocks!!
10:02:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Where is the fog light switch?
10:02:16 <Joe> Bye
10:02:23 <ynpvisitor4> Joe, bye
10:02:24 <Eric> Sunny on OF :-P
10:02:28 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
10:02:57 <LindaGt> Oh wow pretty
10:03:21 <LindaGt> Bbl
10:04:19 <Kevin L™🌵>
10:08:01 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1007ie
10:08:36 <Ryan (desk)> damn fog
10:09:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Looks hot
10:10:29 <Ryan (desk)> All I see is gray
10:11:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Why it is beautiful and sunny Ryan!
10:11:34 <Ryan (desk)> gray and snowy at home
10:12:06 <Kevin L™🌵> 😎
10:12:27 <Ryan (desk)> combine this with the really bad frame rate
10:12:31 <Ryan (desk)> This is rediculous
10:12:36 <Dave from B™> To update you, my legal advisor (my wife), is calling the Public Utilities Commission as we speak and we are communicating with a lawyer friend who can tell us if we have a case to proceed.
10:13:10 <Kevin L™🌵> Go get them Dave!
10:13:46 <Dave from B™> I'm not a fan of suing anyone but not even getting a phone call from a Spectrum mgr or anyone tells me all I need to know
10:13:50 <Eric> Yep....own that company Dave!
10:14:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Send the manager a case of old fish and route it through Phoenix.
10:14:51 <Dave from B™> hahaha
10:15:12 <Eric> especially if they give you a SLA they are not adhering to...otherwise, lawsuit won't help much.
10:16:02 <Eric> SLA is the key and they are using pretty black and white.
10:16:22 <Dave from B™> The family is discussing demanding that they give us 4 new phone numbers so we can get up and calling now rather than later
10:16:24 <Katie> When the cable company got into the telco business, they agreed to honor response time requirements for telcos. They aren't doing so.
10:17:10 <Katie> 4 new numbers makes sense in the interim and THEN demand that the old numbers be ported/forwarded to the new numbers when possible.
10:17:35 <Eric> Just go out and buy 4 cell phones!
10:17:56 <Eric> You could have that in an hour
10:18:44 <Dave from B™> Would that work for 2 phone numbers and 2 rollover lines?
10:20:00 <Eric> If you really wanted multiple phone numbers, phone tree and rollovers, you could use a service like ring central. They can forward to any phone easily.
10:20:29 <Katie> How long has it been, Dave? It's been at least a week, now, hasn't it?
10:21:11 <Eric> While I don't regularly recommend ring central, it's pretty fast and easy.
10:21:36 <Eric> Katie might have better virtual pbx provider knowledge?
10:21:48 <Dave from B™> 48 hours since Spectrum was notified of complete outage. We haven't rec'd a phone call since 1 pm Saturday (Spectrum repair call finished shortly before that)
10:22:27 <Dave from B™> Last Thursday, they fixed the rollover issue
10:22:41 <Eric> CTC?
10:22:51 <Katie> I don't have good knowledge of virtual pbx options these days. Once upon a time I did, but anything I once knew is no longer applicable.
10:23:09 <Eric> that steam looks like it's coming from behind the cone
10:23:21 <Eric> well, some of it at least
10:23:46 <Dave from B™> Our phone system is controlled by an AT&T SYnapse System. It works well
10:24:03 <Dave from B™> Maybe it was just a BH splash to the front?
10:24:48 <Eric> Can't you log into their portal and forward the lines to other numbers?
10:24:54 <Ryan (desk)> I dont see ctc
10:25:35 <Eric> not sure you can see it from here Ryan...I was seeing distinct steam from behind the BH cone
10:25:56 <Dave from B™> They've lost my numbers in the old switch abyss
10:25:58 <Eric> but could have been optical illusion
10:26:10 <ynpvisitor38> must have been from BEB, Beehive's East Bubbler
10:27:00 <Ryan (desk)> At -5 they are all erupting lol
10:27:28 <Ryan (desk)> Like Cascade ;)
10:27:49 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1027?
10:29:40 <Eric> Hmm, guess I am confused about your phones dave. If you are using Synapse Gateway and it's still working....what is actually the issue with your system? Do you just not have a network connection?
10:30:14 <Eric> You keep saying switch, but switches are IP based route devices that shouldn't really affect your phone system.
10:31:45 <Ryan (desk)> Lots of hot water out there
10:32:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Is it in your building or on the lines that service your building Dave?
10:33:08 <Ryan (desk)> 20 min apart, nice durations, too. Could have an early BH
10:34:02 <Kevin L™🌵> Lion ie
10:35:49 <Ryan (desk)> Depression ie
10:36:49 <Kevin L™🌵> Very steamy
10:37:46 <Ryan (desk)> Water!
10:40:38 <ynpvisitor72> ah Little Squirt active today
10:41:16 <ynpvisitor72> Beehive will probably erupt between 1100 and 1300
10:41:26 <Ryan (desk)> bsb?
10:41:28 <Ryan (desk)> 1041
10:42:02 <Ryan (desk)> LS is still erupting
10:42:06 <ynpvisitor72> have hair appointment
10:43:10 <ynpvisitor72> wind direction will make it tricky to see start of indy
10:43:27 <LindaGt> That's like north south east and west bubblers
10:43:49 <Kevin L™🌵> VERY active.
10:44:34 <ynpvisitor72> wow, how is that for camo
10:45:29 <ynpvisitor72> well I hope view clears up before beehive erupts
10:45:38 <Ryan (desk)> The sunrise was a preemptive apology for todays fog.
10:46:21 <Eric> Washburn is still beautiful
10:46:41 <ynpvisitor72> bbl if bee doesn't erupt
10:46:44 <Eric> Just UGB with it's 8 degrees and 94% humidity!
10:47:12 <Eric> I bet all the basins are foggy
10:59:30 <Ryan (desk)> BSB?
10:59:34 <Ryan (desk)> 1059
11:00:24 <Eric> West Bubbler Blow, South Bubbler Blow....
11:00:51 <Eric> big splashes
11:01:36 <Eric> Anyone have advice for when you lose your big toenails? :-(
11:02:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Keep better track of them?
11:02:25 <Eric> Oh I know right where they are
11:02:45 <Eric> They just don't want to be with me anymore :-( Guess bad relationship?
11:03:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Did you smash them?
11:03:16 <Eric> over and over and over again
11:03:28 <Eric> Climbing a mountain
11:04:12 <Ryan (desk)> OF time
11:04:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Oh. You don't want to do that again for a while.
11:04:25 <Ryan (desk)> I hate to look away, but I would like to see a geyser not blocked by fog
11:04:37 <Eric> No, my feet will have to rest for a while now :-(
11:04:50 <Eric> I had big plans over the holidays too...oh well
11:05:22 <ynpvisitor28> get different boots next time :)
11:06:09 <LindaGt> Took a screen print of sunrise
11:06:11 <Eric> Well, a change for sure...thinner socks, bigger boots, different insoles....
11:06:31 <Ryan (desk)> OF 1106ns static
11:06:45 <Eric> Hey cam driver......OF OF OF
11:06:52 <Ryan (desk)> tried to warn
11:07:00 <Eric> Yep
11:07:09 <LindaGt> OF ERUPTING
11:07:15 <LindaGt> .
11:07:15 <LindaGt> .
11:07:41 <Eric> woops :-P
11:07:51 <Eric> Good thing it has it's own cam
11:08:08 <Ryan (desk)> yeah
11:08:22 <Eric> For those that wanted to see it:
11:08:47 <LindaGt> Big boy
11:08:56 <Eric> not sure if you knew Ryan, but you can hold down the ctrl key above the static OF image and scroll backwards in time.
11:09:15 <Ryan (desk)> When i do that it zooms in and out
11:09:37 <Eric> It only works on the OF static cam
11:09:54 <Eric> and it can't be in "show all" view
11:11:12 <Eric> someone cleaning the inn roof?
11:12:07 <Eric> nope, guess it's just blowing snow
11:13:06 <LindaGt> Daisy may e
11:13:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Could be
11:14:06 <Ryan (desk)> Who is driving?
11:14:25 <Eric> Miss Daisy
11:16:14 <Ryan (desk)> BSB time
11:18:01 <Ryan (desk)> Yep. Beehive South Bubbler 1117ie
11:20:14 <Ryan (desk)> already done, the intervals are tightening.
11:23:48 <Eric> Ok...I added some info on the UGB archive static image, when you put your mouse over it, you should now see a message that says "Hold [CTRL] key"
11:24:06 <Eric> Once you have the CTRL key pressed, it should say Scroll for History
11:24:21 <Eric> If you are not seeing those messages, let me know
11:24:33 <Eric> You will have to refresh the page to get that updated text though
11:26:15 <Ryan (desk)> BSB?
11:26:18 <Ryan (desk)> 1126
11:26:59 <Ryan (desk)> nope
11:27:00 <ynpvisitor107> Is anyone brave enough to climb the ice covered stairs to the roof?
11:27:22 <Ryan (desk)> Dont need to be brave with ice spikes :D
11:27:46 <ynpvisitor107> I doubt they would let you wear spikes up there.
11:28:14 <Eric> why not? You are only spiking the snow, not the roof
11:28:15 <Ryan (desk)> I could see it on the ice, kind of hard to safely do it otherwise.
11:28:31 <Ryan (desk)> And I meant like racing spikes, not crampons.
11:28:43 <ynpvisitor107> They do not do tours in the rain because of the danger of slipping.
11:29:00 <Ryan (desk)> Then I think you answered your own question. :D
11:29:43 <Eric> I would totally be brave axe and crampons, no problems :-P
11:29:59 <Lori S> Winter keepers sign up for the danger and are paid. Tourists must be kept safe. :)
11:30:01 <ynpvisitor107> Was asking because someone commented that it looked like they were clearing the roof.
11:30:04 <Ryan (desk)> Use a real axe, whats the worst that could happen.
11:31:17 <Eric> probably even one available in a firebox in the Inn :-P
11:31:35 <Lori S> Bob used to clean snow off the Inn roof areas spring and fall. Said it is certainly an adrenaline rush.
11:32:20 <ynpvisitor107> I can not even remember if the door opens in or out?
11:32:29 <Lori S> He also used to wind the about a fear of heights.
11:32:47 <Lori S> (It's electric now)
11:33:02 <ynpvisitor107> I thought it was broke
11:33:34 <Lori S> Could be. He last worked there over 20 hears ago.
11:33:42 <Lori S> *years
11:34:36 <ynpvisitor107> Well, good luck with the fog.
11:35:21 <Lori S> Hey Eric, I measured all kinds of distances on Google maps last night. Many at Norris. So cool!
11:35:49 <Ryan (desk)> bsb?
11:36:50 <Lori S> Factoid: Distance from center of Cistern to SB vent is about 300 ft (height of SB -ish)
11:36:54 <Ryan (desk)> my sput is broken again :c
11:37:34 <Lori S> Not accounting for elevation change, of course
11:39:51 <ynpvisitor28> speaking of, any guesses on 'Steamboat?
11:40:37 <Lori S> I guess it will go when it's ready.
11:41:05 <Lori S> :p
11:41:11 <ynpvisitor28> agreed on that
11:50:01 <Lori S> off to lunch. bbl
11:50:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Bring me back a pizza.
11:50:45 <Ryan (desk)> bsb?
11:52:41 <Kevin L™🌵> No, pepperoni.
11:52:51 <Ryan (desk)> ah
11:53:25 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1152
11:56:10 <LindaGt> I havent seen steph on here in a long time
11:59:08 <Eric> Nice Lori...glad you are enjoying all the cool maps features :-D
11:59:16 <Ryan (desk)> South bubbler was on for 6 min
11:59:31 <Eric> No pepperoni?!!?!? why bother eating pizza then?
12:00:15 <Ryan (desk)> I think Beehive will be in the next two hours
12:00:45 <Eric> That would be nice...but not holding my breath
12:01:22 <Ryan (desk)> With a 6 min duration?
12:01:48 <Ryan (desk)> sppPPLLlash
12:02:16 <Eric> It would be the shortest in the last 16
12:02:39 <Ryan (desk)> yesterdays was the longest in the last 16 :P
12:02:52 <Eric> True...if it wasn't a double
12:03:08 <Eric> Double would fit right in there
12:03:13 <Eric> at 23h each
12:03:26 <Ryan (desk)> I dont think it was. We missed BH for only two hours and the bubblers were active only three hours after that
12:03:58 <Ryan (desk)> Those would also be two of the shortest in the last 25, eric.
12:04:59 <Eric> 23h is pretty average
12:05:22 <Eric> ok...maybe a little on the shorter side :-P
12:05:51 <Eric> But we have had 2 go under 21h
12:05:56 <Ryan (desk)> I was gonna say. only one of the last 15 have been under a day
12:06:13 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1206
12:08:05 <Betty> hi again
12:08:19 <Kevin L™🌵> Guten hi
12:08:26 <Eric> Hi Betty
12:08:37 <Betty> hi Kevin and Eric
12:08:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Done shopping?
12:09:10 <Ryan (desk)> Lots of BH steam
12:09:13 <Ryan (desk)> really strong BSB
12:09:16 <Betty> christmas market;-)
12:10:22 <Betty> hi Ryan
12:10:42 <Betty> BH can go now, I´m here
12:10:55 <JarnoO> green light from me
12:10:59 <LindaGt> Betty, 😊 hi again
12:11:02 <JarnoO> afternoon all, evening Betty
12:11:07 <LindaGt> JarnoO, hi
12:11:13 <Ryan (desk)> That was another 5min duration for BSB!
12:11:18 <Ryan (desk)> Hi Betty!
12:11:19 <Betty> yesterday indy started only minutes after I had left
12:11:33 <Kevin L™🌵> How about an aurum appetizer?
12:11:50 <JarnoO> I like your thinking Kevin
12:11:52 <Betty> hi again LindaGt, evening Jarno
12:12:01 <Eric> You leaving soon Betty?
12:12:04 <Eric> :-P
12:12:15 <Eric> :-P?
12:12:17 <Betty> booo, Eric
12:12:19 <Eric> aurum ie?
12:12:45 <Eric> guess so
12:13:11 <Kevin L™🌵> I don't see it
12:14:01 <LindaGt> It was quite punctual at 5 hrs last night
12:14:24 <Ryan (desk)> bubblers are coming on again
12:16:25 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1216
12:17:53 <Ryan (desk)> another shorty
12:18:03 <JarnoO> 10m interval
12:18:16 <Ryan (desk)> I think it stopped, d=12sec
12:19:24 <JarnoO> OT might be ie
12:19:31 <Ryan (desk)> back on 1218
12:21:42 <JarnoO> Bee has guests
12:25:15 <Ryan (desk)> I think BSB is still ie at7min
12:25:26 <Ryan (desk)> there it stopped
12:25:28 <JarnoO> Bee [i]had[/i] guests
12:26:07 <JarnoO> yeah, I think it stopped. Not really an eruption-like plume anymore
12:26:23 <Ryan (desk)> It was really long duration again though
12:26:30 <Ryan (desk)> I think were close
12:27:07 <JarnoO> perhaps two or three more cycles or so I think
12:27:49 <Ryan (desk)> just in time for me to end my day, nice ending if it works out that way
12:32:41 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1232?
12:33:10 <JarnoO> darn... stealth mode didn't work out for Fluffball
12:34:59 <JarnoO> I only saw the bubblers getting steamier but no obvious water visible for me. Not sure what the criteria are for an eruption of BSB, so I'm not much of a help in that area
12:35:25 <Ryan (desk)> Usually when it all gets steamy thats the start of a cycle.
12:35:31 <Ryan (desk)> I meant to enter it as a ?
12:35:57 <LindaGt> Ah no fog
12:36:17 <Kevin L™🌵> I got rid of it.
12:36:29 <LindaGt> Kevin L™🌵, good idea
12:41:03 <Kevin L™🌵> I sent it to the coast of Guatemala.
12:41:39 <ynpvisitor26> does the cam have the slows today?
12:42:07 <Kevin L™🌵> yes
12:45:41 <JarnoO> Of
12:45:56 <Ryan (desk)> very nice!
12:46:18 <JarnoO> OF is 2 minutes late :P
12:51:07 <Ryan (desk)> BSB?
12:53:32 <Ryan (desk)> can we zoom in on BH?
12:53:37 <Kitt> yay Bee waited for me
12:53:44 <Ryan (desk)> I think BSB is erupting
12:53:49 <Kitt> just got back from hair appointment
12:53:55 <Betty> hi Kitt
12:54:37 <Kitt> think it is steam vent
12:54:45 <Kitt> should get more splashy
12:54:46 <JarnoO> BSB
12:54:57 <Kitt> like now
12:57:01 <Eric> weird light at OF static
12:57:37 <Betty> did you see todays sunrise?
12:57:45 <JarnoO> almost makes you think it's evening
12:57:46 <Eric> Yes, joes video was nice
12:58:05 <Eric> It's like they tinted the windows on VEC
12:58:33 <Betty>
12:58:41 <Ryan (desk)> I keep expecting BHI
12:59:00 <Eric> Alien spaceship blocking light at OF?
12:59:03 <Betty> for those who missed it
12:59:09 <Eric> Started right after last eruption
12:59:17 <ynpvisitor26> people all over the park posted the sunrise today
13:00:26 <Kitt> perfect amount of clouds to get awesome sunrise
13:01:05 <JarnoO> it's a sunrise you'd normally see in movies
13:01:46 <Ozzie> Hey 26, where'd they post it? Twitter?
13:02:02 <ynpvisitor26> instagram and FB
13:02:24 <Kitt> go to Betty's posted link above
13:02:48 <ynpvisitor26> yes, Joe's You Tube link is the best of all of them
13:03:06 <Kitt> oh, I missed a bubbler restart
13:03:19 <Kitt> I actually like those
13:03:35 <Kitt> I am expecting indy fairly soon
13:03:59 <Eric> indy steam?
13:04:27 <Kitt> Oh and Brian, if you are still on, the beehive steam vent is the vent that hissed this summer
13:04:36 <Eric> Really hard to tell with the artifacting
13:04:59 <Eric> Airi,
13:05:00 <Kitt> Aurum
13:05:00 <Eric> .
13:05:01 <Eric> .
13:05:01 <Eric> .
13:05:04 <ynpvisitor26> Aurum?
13:05:04 <Eric> Aurum :-P
13:05:28 <Eric> fingers in the wrong place.
13:05:33 <LindaGt> Yes
13:05:36 <ynpvisitor26> at least we know it happened
13:05:45 <Kitt> wonder if those people looked back
13:05:55 <JarnoO> well, there's the appetizer
13:06:12 <ynpvisitor26> hopefully Bee will be more visible than that
13:06:15 <Kevin L™🌵> steamed Aurum
13:06:31 <Kitt> need a good breeze
13:06:52 <ynpvisitor26> that looks promising
13:06:54 <Eric> Yes, indy very soon
13:07:10 <Eric> or maybe no indy :-P
13:08:07 <Eric> I guess my early comment about BHI steam was just BSBS drifting
13:09:20 <ynpvisitor26> ha ha, 8 ft above cone?
13:09:43 <Ryan (desk)> oops
13:09:54 <Kitt> bhi isn't 8 ft. above cone when it starts
13:09:56 <Ryan (desk)> 3-5ft*
13:10:14 <ynpvisitor26> I'd say 3 ft tops, yet put what you like
13:10:27 <JarnoO> 8 ft above Bee's cone when Bee starts? Is that a major for Indy? :D
13:10:31 <Ryan (desk)> I mean the cone is 5ft tall. Some of those splashes were the same height of the cone.
13:10:55 <Kitt> I thought it was 3.5 feet tall Ryan
13:10:57 <Ryan (desk)> You know the note was for Beehive, not Beehive's Indicator or the South Ubbler right?
13:11:01 <ynpvisitor26> I guess I missed those. I am referring to Ryan's BH note
13:11:29 <Ryan (desk)> I'll have to find the reference, kitt. I thought it was between 42 and 58 inches tall.
13:11:35 <Eric> 8ft??!?!?!
13:11:41 <Kitt> hadn't even read the gt note, just saw the chat entry
13:11:48 <Ryan (desk)> For christs sake it was a typo, I am working on fixing.
13:11:51 <ynpvisitor26> ha ha,
13:12:05 <Eric> I was just bummed I missed it :-P
13:12:32 <ynpvisitor26> tall as the fence Eric...(not)
13:12:44 <Eric> Dudes over estimate everything!
13:12:48 <JarnoO> perfect example of how things can get mangled easily
13:12:55 <ynpvisitor26> those engineers...
13:12:55 <Ryan (desk)> and fixed.
13:13:01 <CraigC> chat people are demanding, no room for mistakes
13:13:16 <Ryan (desk)> They are worse than the in basin gazers.
13:13:31 <CraigC> and more ornery
13:13:58 <Ryan (desk)> These armchairs get uncomfortable...
13:14:09 <Betty> :-)
13:14:39 <Cooper> Aloha fellow Nerds
13:14:50 <Eric> You in hawaii cooper?
13:15:08 <Kitt> hm, this is a long off for bsb
13:15:13 <Cooper> No, I am eating lunch with fellow nerd. Mr. THurston
13:15:22 <Eric> ahh
13:15:26 <ynpvisitor26> there you go Kitt
13:15:28 <Cooper> aka. my favorite teacher of all time
13:15:37 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1315
13:15:45 <Ryan (desk)> Wow, look at that! It's hitting 15ft!
13:15:48 <Eric> Way to go for the A :-P
13:15:54 <ynpvisitor26> at least!
13:15:57 <Eric> more like 70 Ryan
13:16:01 <Kitt> 1253 to 1315
13:16:05 <Eric> Probably can see it from the overpass :-P
13:16:15 <Ryan (desk)> You've heard of feet, youheard of *Rocco feet*, now get ready for *Ryan feet*!!
13:16:27 <Ryan (desk)> Get 10ft for the height of ONE!
13:16:29 <CraigC> is it as BSB false start?
13:16:34 <Cooper> I think i would still get the A otherwise
13:16:38 <ynpvisitor28> is Ryan-feet like Rocco-feet?
13:16:39 <Kitt> some of you have been sitting at your desk too long
13:16:52 <ynpvisitor26> Ryan is getting paid to be here
13:16:54 <Eric> All day Kitt!
13:17:15 <Kitt> time to stand up and stretch then Eric
13:17:15 <CraigC> I sat in the dentist chair for 2 hours, that is TOO LONG
13:17:17 <Ryan (desk)> 5 days a week
13:17:30 <Eric> that is too long...and Hi Craig!
13:17:39 <CraigC> hey Eric
13:17:40 <Kevin L™🌵> 2 minutes is too long Craig
13:17:40 <Kitt> yes
13:17:47 <Cooper> Aloha Craig
13:17:51 <Eric> I should Kitt...but don't want to miss BH!
13:18:11 <Kitt> you don't have to leave the area, just stand up
13:18:14 <Eric> Kevin :heart: the Dentist!
13:18:20 <Eric> ok...standing
13:18:33 <Ryan (desk)> Everyone at work is staring at me, can I sit back down now?
13:18:46 <Kitt> wave back to them
13:19:03 <Kitt> tell them the gazers say hi
13:19:12 <Ryan (desk)> hahahaha
13:19:56 <Eric> alright...back stitting
13:20:20 <Kitt> wow the bubbler sure is lengthening out
13:20:30 <Ryan (desk)> Yeah that was another 5+min duration
13:21:01 <Kitt> it was first seen around 0958 ie
13:22:06 <Ryan (desk)> That was wha? 9 Ryan-hours ago?
13:22:52 <Kitt> maybe no indy today
13:23:17 <ynpvisitor26> Indy after Bee
13:23:26 <Kitt> 3.5 hours ago
13:24:12 <Ryan (desk)> Yeah it started stretching a while ago. But the BSBs seem to be weak and erratic until the last hour or so
13:24:31 <Ryan (desk)> Or last hour to two hours.
13:24:50 <Ryan (desk)> This series really picked up at 1152, 90 minutes ago
13:25:07 <ynpvisitor26> final answer...
13:26:30 <Kitt> what is steam to left of tree on static?
13:26:40 <Ryan (desk)> Dome
13:26:45 <Kitt> ok
13:27:06 <Kitt> I didn't know Dome was active today
13:27:14 <Kitt> there it is
13:27:15 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1327
13:27:31 <Kevin L™🌵> This is the first I have seen it.
13:27:40 <Ryan (desk)> It was active this morning
13:27:55 <Ryan (desk)> Huh, no one logged them. We saw them around 0500
13:28:05 <Ryan (desk)> Unless we just saw steam and this is an initial
13:28:43 <Kitt> I was going to say, no Domes were logged on gt
13:28:56 <Kitt> hm, wind shift
13:29:11 <Ryan (desk)> I thought we saw some this morning. But it could have just been steam. We aklso thought Cascade was active haha
13:29:26 <ynpvisitor26> good shift, easier to see indy
13:29:53 <JarnoO> briefly went through static images. No obvious Dome in the last 156 minutes, so this must be the initial
13:30:27 <Eric> Yep, I have been looking at static a lot, never saw dome on it earlier
13:30:29 <JarnoO> I should say that there are no signs pointing towards an eruption of Dome in the last 156 minutes
13:30:37 <Kitt> so 1326 wc ie Dome initial
13:30:41 <ynpvisitor26> it's not on GT so it didn't happen...
13:30:59 <JarnoO> so Bee and Dome on one frame please? Allows us to maybe see some nice bursts
13:31:08 <Eric> looks like 1324 start
13:31:22 <Kitt> ok
13:31:29 <ynpvisitor26> is static cam time and streaming the same?
13:31:41 <Kitt> I like Dome
13:31:46 <Eric> static is roughly correct
13:32:00 <Kitt> fun geyser to watch up there on the boardwalk
13:32:01 <ynpvisitor26> good, I remember it was off 3 minutes this summer
13:32:32 <Eric> seemed short to be ini on Dome
13:32:41 <Eric> Yes, I think they corrected that 26
13:33:06 <JarnoO> static's time is usually correct these days
13:33:13 <Eric> another Dome 1329
13:33:15 <Kitt> is Depression pushing?
13:33:46 <Ryan (desk)> One could correct their computer time to get close to corrected YNP time with the static cam.
13:34:02 <Kitt> I would think the 1329 Dome is the same as the 1324
13:34:32 <ynpvisitor26> I agree Kitt, too soon to be another one.
13:34:36 <Kitt> but I don't remember how long Dome generally erupts for
13:34:39 <ynpvisitor26> initials last longer
13:34:39 <Ryan (desk)> Like, comparing between OF starts on computer time versus time stamp on the static cam
13:35:14 <JarnoO> Dome start 1324 (first frame with eruption plume), end 1332 (first frame without eruption column) per static
13:35:15 <ynpvisitor26> hard to catch an OF start on static Ryan
13:35:23 <Eric> Yes...agree, really up/down steam on static from 1324 onward
13:35:24 <JarnoO> duration of ~8m
13:35:29 <Ryan (desk)> Would get you to the right minute
13:35:53 <ynpvisitor26> yes, usually. Sometimes I wait for static to show the eruption and it is a wait
13:36:02 <Ryan (desk)> My computer clock could be off by several minutes from the park, I assume not because my computer clock is synced with the internet. But I dont know.
13:36:08 <Eric> alright...1328 looked really weak...but I guess just slowed.
13:36:21 <ynpvisitor26> Graham would know
13:36:29 <ynpvisitor26> about Dome durations
13:37:02 <Ryan (desk)> I was just thinking that if you see an OF start on the streaming cam at 13:00:000 and the static image of a similar view of the same eruption has it at 12:58:44, then you know your click time is probably 2-3min fast.
13:37:05 <Eric> 8m seems much more reasonable for ini
13:37:48 <ynpvisitor26> last initial posted was Nov 17 and it was over 40 minutes until next one
13:37:58 <Ryan (desk)> getting warm again
13:38:05 <Eric> The clock on the static cam is imprinted by the cam if it's time is set correctly, it's dead accurate. Unfortunately, it seems to drift :-(
13:38:08 <JarnoO> you'd expect Dome to have a bit more oomph to it than that 6d after last series end
13:38:23 <JarnoO> BSB
13:38:30 <Eric> I agree Jarno...but it was ie
13:38:39 <JarnoO> true
13:38:43 <Ryan (desk)> On a similar note, I'd sync my photo time stamps with my clock by photographing my watch every few hours in the park
13:38:45 <ynpvisitor26> we saw some good bursts when cam moved over
13:38:59 <Kitt> Aurum didn't get in gt
13:39:09 <Eric> haha...I came up with a way to sync times on video with QR codes :-D
13:39:31 <Kitt> happy bsb
13:39:32 <Eric> Then computers could easily understand what time it was in a video
13:40:07 <ynpvisitor26> looks steamier all of a sudden
13:40:12 <Kitt> aw bee, show the nice people an eruption
13:40:14 <Ryan (desk)> very very happy
13:42:23 <Ryan (desk)> 11min interval
13:42:55 <JarnoO> Dome 1339 ns static
13:44:30 <LindaGt> Beehives still thinking about it
13:47:07 <Ryan (desk)> Steam near BH on static?
13:47:15 <Ryan (desk)> Not sure where BH is on the static to be fair
13:47:31 <Kitt> very far left
13:47:53 <Kitt> mm, bison
13:48:15 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1348ie?
13:48:18 <Kitt> bubbler again
13:48:37 <Ryan (desk)> <10min interval
13:56:25 <JarnoO> BSB
13:56:30 <Cooper> BSB
13:56:38 <Cooper> hallo Jarno
13:56:45 <JarnoO> hi Cooper
13:56:53 <Ryan (desk)> 8 minute intevral
13:56:58 <Ryan (desk)> BHI has to be any minute now
13:59:51 <Kitt> I think bee is waiting for the next Old Faithful
14:00:09 <Cooper> I say next cycle
14:00:20 <Ryan (desk)> of course its waiting lol
14:02:54 <Ryan (desk)> ASnother 30ft splash
14:04:39 <Cooper> c'mon Devil Geyser
14:04:42 <Cooper> BSB
14:04:46 <Cooper> It hear me
14:05:02 <ynpvisitor26> another 10 ft splash
14:05:15 <Ryan (desk)> Looked like 12 to me
14:05:42 <Cooper> more like 11 feet to me
14:06:02 <Kitt> I went and made lunch
14:06:04 <Ryan (desk)> indy steam?
14:06:08 <Ryan (desk)> .
14:06:09 <Ryan (desk)> ..
14:06:10 <Ryan (desk)> .
14:06:10 <Ryan (desk)> .
14:06:12 <Ryan (desk)> .BHI

14:06:26 <Ryan (desk)> 1406!
14:06:29 <Cooper> I kne wit was meant to be this cycle!
14:06:40 <Ryan (desk)> Wow my fingers hate the keyboard today
14:06:54 <Cooper> c'mon Indy, get chuging, I only have 15 minutes
14:06:59 <LindaGt> Oh I dy
14:07:19 <LindaGt> * indy
14:07:41 <JarnoO> oh hi Indy
14:07:45 <Kitt> actually you have less, since fluffy is in the window
14:07:58 <Cooper> Piffles
14:08:10 <LindaGt> Oh no not the fluffy window
14:08:22 <Kevin L™🌵> Hope we get another rainbow.
14:08:34 <Ryan (desk)> We will, we just wont see it.
14:08:53 <Ryan (desk)> We will be looking elsewhere I am sure
14:08:58 <Kevin L™🌵> What a cute geyser. Let's move on, we saw it.
14:09:17 <Kitt> i got to get to Old Faithful he says
14:09:38 <LindaGt> Power walk
14:09:52 <Eric> ahhh crap
14:09:57 <Eric> boooo fluffy!
14:10:24 <Cooper> I would say something, but the school district would get mad at me
14:10:46 <Ryan (desk)> It is enormously disheartening to wait all day for Beehive and then not be allowed to watch it
14:11:02 <Eric> Yes it is
14:11:05 <LindaGt> Hasnt moved yet
14:11:13 <Cooper> an utter dissapointment
14:11:18 <Cooper> OF ie
14:11:20 <Cooper> on static
14:11:24 <Cooper> but, I never said that
14:11:35 <LindaGt> Cooper, not on mine
14:11:40 <Kitt> mine hasnt refreshed
14:11:49 <Chancellor> of
14:11:50 <JarnoO> early
14:11:52 <Cooper> Maybe Bee will wait 2 minutes
14:11:52 <Ryan (desk)> Mine isnt even up
14:11:52 <Kitt> wow, nice fluffy
14:11:55 <LindaGt> Ignorance is bliss
14:11:57 <Eric> Nice static:
14:12:27 <Dave from B™> BH looks a lot like OF today
14:12:39 <Kevin L™🌵> :P
14:12:40 <Ryan (desk)> Cool, saw the best part
14:12:44 <Kitt> maybe indy will wait for us
14:12:54 <Kitt> or at least bee will wait
14:13:20 <JarnoO> hm, apparantly both Ryan and Kevin are in the park today. Might want append wc to both your entries :P
14:13:35 <Ryan (desk)> Channeling my inner Kitt: *points at Beehive* "Bigger hole"
14:14:10 <Eric> Thanks Bee
14:14:21 <Chancellor> I did not quit
14:14:45 <Dave from B™> BTW, Public Service Commission is calling Spectrum on my behalf this afternoon
14:15:03 <Cooper> for what reason?
14:15:03 <Kitt> yay
14:15:05 <Eric> How about your lawyer?
14:15:14 <Dave from B™> 4 days without phones
14:15:28 <ynpvisitor6> nice BH burst
14:15:33 <ynpvisitor26> OF needs wc on it
14:15:39 <Kitt> at a busy time of year too
14:15:44 <Dave from B™> We'll be taking legal action soon
14:15:44 <Eric> It has one...a static
14:15:47 <ynpvisitor26> unbelievably bad timing for this Dave
14:15:56 <Cooper> Dave, for what?
14:15:56 <CraigC> Dave from B™, sorry to hear it is still not resolved
14:16:04 <ynpvisitor26> I hope people don't think you are closed
14:16:46 <Dave from B™> People have been finding us...sending emails, etc
14:17:08 <Cooper> so why do you need to take legal action for people sending you emails?
14:17:27 <Dave from B™> Because it has cost us thousands of dollars in business
14:17:27 <Kitt> hey Kevin you need wc with your fluffy post
14:17:34 <ynpvisitor26> read some logs Cooper
14:17:38 <Cooper> wow
14:17:45 <Cooper> that is not good Dave, sorry
14:18:01 <Ryan (desk)> Dont worry about 26, Cooper. They've been sitting in a chair too long as well. :P
14:18:10 <ynpvisitor26> truly
14:18:41 <Kitt> haha
14:18:52 <Ryan (desk)> What was that and how do I do it? lol
14:19:08 <Cooper> isn't that "/notice ____"
14:19:17 <Ryan (desk)> Cooper, his phones are down and his provider isnt doing anything to remedy it, and hes losing a lot of business.
14:19:20 <Dave from B™> And to top off the phone issue, FDA has been here for 3 days...they are gone finally
14:20:09 <Betty> ugh, Fave...
14:20:12 <Kitt> bee cannot be rushed before its time
14:20:17 <ynpvisitor26> well good long indy for those who are late
14:20:22 <Betty> Dave, Sorry
14:20:26 <Bhoffer> it would be awesome for BH to go exactly 24 hours after the revious
14:20:48 <Bhoffer> previous
14:21:06 <Kitt> Beehive
14:21:08 <JarnoO> :bee:
14:21:11 <Cooper> boom
14:21:14 <Kitt> woohoo
14:21:27 <Ryan (desk)> Wow!!
14:21:37 <Dave from B™> What I really need is a SB fix. Can I borrow your fat tire snow bike, CraigC?:)
14:21:38 <Kitt> nice start
14:21:58 <Ryan (desk)> Joe, I hope you're capturing!
14:22:06 <ynpvisitor26> when would you go Dave?
14:22:21 <LindaGt> Nice bee
14:22:26 <CraigC> Dave from B™, come and get it
14:22:46 <ynpvisitor26> I bet you could rent one in Gardiner
14:23:02 <Ryan (desk)> outstanding!
14:23:30 <CraigC> IMO, the Norris overlook would be the prime winter spot
14:23:32 <Kitt> well, I didn't think I would get to see Bee today
14:23:39 <Kitt> so I really appreciate it
14:23:49 <Ryan (desk)> 142344 BHI off
14:24:21 <ynpvisitor26> for watching the eruption Craig?
14:24:30 <CraigC> ynpvisitor26, yeah
14:24:48 <ynpvisitor26> do you think you would see water?
14:24:58 <Kitt> I do
14:25:16 <CraigC> last year someone, forget who, posted a photo from there and it looked amazing
14:25:24 <ynpvisitor26> today, wouldn't you want to be close up?
14:25:42 <JarnoO> only if the wind direction is right
14:25:47 <ynpvisitor26> still curious when Dave thinks it will go
14:25:55 <Ryan (desk)> BH off 142549
14:26:01 <Kitt> day 11
14:26:06 <CraigC> I doubt it, the risk of getting wet and freezing to death sounds like a bad way to go
14:26:13 <Kitt> have a good day
14:26:18 <JarnoO> cya Kit
14:26:21 <JarnoO> Kitt*
14:26:24 <Kitt> hope they fix your phones soon Dave
14:27:16 <CraigC> I got drenched in September and it got cold
14:27:22 <Dave from B™> I'm thinking tomorrow
14:27:28 <Dave from B™> Thanks Kitt
14:27:48 <Ryan (desk)> BH: d = 4m41s
14:28:10 <Ryan (desk)> BHI: d = 17m32s, l = 14m56s
14:28:29 <Ryan (desk)> That was a wonderful, wonderful end to my day. I am off to dirve home in a blizzard.
14:28:31 <Ryan (desk)> Later everyone
14:28:43 <JarnoO> cya Ryan, stay safe
14:29:04 <CraigC> be careful
14:29:30 <Ryan (desk)> "blizzard" = snow squalls, thx everyone, will do!
14:43:01 <Dave from B™> omg....our phone actually rang
14:43:23 <Betty> WHAT????
14:43:50 <JarnoO> improvement!
14:45:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Was it a wrong number?
14:48:08 <Dave from B™> wholesale and 1 other number are working. retail and another rollover are not
14:48:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Grand
14:48:40 <Kevin L™🌵> .
14:55:07 <Kevin L™🌵> Pretty steam cloud anyway.
14:55:52 <Dave from B™> 2nd phone call is a solicitor...I haven't missed those!
14:56:59 <Kevin L™🌵> You should be able to push a button when you get tose and it charges them $5 and puts it into your account.
14:57:23 <Kevin L™🌵> Double for political calls.
14:57:26 <Dave from B™> That would end soliticing in a hurry!!
15:10:18 <Lori S> Afternoon all
15:10:27 <Lori S> Much better view than earlier :)
15:11:33 <Betty> hi Lori
15:12:12 <Cooper> Kevin, you are in the park for Daisy?
15:12:16 <Lori S> Hi Betty
15:12:29 <JarnoO> hi Lori
15:12:32 <Cooper> the 1112 one
15:12:51 <Lori S> Hi Jarno
15:12:59 <Cooper> Ozzie = Jimbo???
15:13:28 <Lori S> Prince of Darkness?
15:13:47 <Lori S> Oh wait, that's Y
15:14:14 <Eric> Cow
15:14:41 <Lori S> Bull
15:14:56 <Eric> Bovine
15:14:56 <Cooper> Cluck
15:15:10 <Cooper> I mean, I don't know what I meant
15:15:40 <Katie> He doesn't cluck but he has a ... oh, nevermind. But he has it.
15:20:54 <Eric> Cow, in common parlance, a domestic bovine, regardless of *** and age, usually of the species Bos taurus.
15:21:24 <Eric> But yes, also a Bull :-P
15:23:21 <Lori S> Cow bison is a she
15:23:55 <Lori S> er, um, her pronouns are she/her :)
15:24:07 <Eric> Non-Binary Bison
15:24:19 <Eric> They just prefer Cow
15:24:43 <Eric> Non-***ist, implies neither female or male.
15:24:54 <Eric> uggg, I am removing the stupid filters here!
15:25:09 <Kevin L™🌵> It self identifies as a steak.
15:25:30 <Lori S> Kevin L™🌵, blahhaha
15:25:32 <Eric> I don't think so Kevin...but I do identify it as one :-P
15:25:53 <Lori S> But a cow bison has no dangly part and a bull bison does. Like doe and buck with deer
15:25:54 <Eric> Not just one steak either...rib-eye, T-Bone, ....
15:26:12 <Eric> Cow, in common parlance, a domestic bovine, regardless of *** and age
15:26:32 <Lori S> Yes, I get that.
15:27:00 <Lori S> Bison are not domestic. Unless Ted Turner raised it.
15:27:06 <Lori S> :p
15:27:42 <Lori S> you're gonna let "dangly part" go by with no mention? :)
15:28:04 <Lori S> Hello Linda Hello!
15:28:13 <LindaG> I'm not I'm sitting here laughing at dangly
15:28:23 <LindaG> Lori S, hi
15:28:27 <Eric> My meaning of cow was a female bovine
15:28:35 <Eric> woops...I mean just a generic bovine
15:29:08 <Lori S> humanoid too close to a cow
15:29:09 <Eric> I understand that cow has a specific meaning when talking about gender of bison now :-D
15:29:34 <Eric> Bison coming over to say hi
15:29:40 <Eric> stupid person isn't moving
15:29:55 <Eric> ohhh no
15:30:04 <Lori S> eek
15:30:07 <Dave from B™> Was someone talking about a dewlap?
15:30:09 <Lori S> delayed
15:30:11 <LindaG> He needs a red cape
15:30:17 <JarnoO> quickly look away
15:30:25 <Lori S> holy snikeee
15:30:31 <JarnoO> now this is even more stupid
15:30:40 <Eric> wow....doesn't even bother to face it
15:30:40 <Dave from B™> wow
15:30:53 <Eric> walk slowly away dude
15:30:55 <LindaG> It's a standoff
15:31:01 <Lori S> w t f
15:31:03 <Dave from B™> watch the tail
15:31:06 <Katie> Geez, it's been a whole 5 weeks since we last saw stupid human tricks on the camera
15:31:12 <JarnoO> sure, nice Instagram picture, but it may be the last picture you'll ever take
15:31:24 <Lori S> watch him pet it
15:31:24 <JarnoO> and the last post you write, too
15:31:36 <Eric> VEC call anyone?
15:31:43 <LindaG> Tail is down
15:31:50 <Lori S> for now
15:31:52 <Eric> That is good at least
15:32:03 <LindaG> Chewing his cud
15:32:24 <Dave from B™> Is the guy scared to move?
15:32:34 <LindaG> Might be
15:32:34 <JarnoO> in what position should the tail be when you must urgently leave the scene?
15:32:34 <Kevin L™🌵> le notified.
15:32:51 <LindaG> JarnoO, up
15:32:52 <Eric> and off bw he goes
15:32:58 <JarnoO> thanks
15:33:04 <LindaG> Hes on skies
15:33:15 <Lori S> I'm speechless
15:33:17 <Ozzie> Fly, fly away
15:33:28 <Eric> already dumb dumb show over
15:33:31 <Eric> I hope
15:33:50 <Lori S> good move taking off the skis i think
15:34:15 <Lori S> Giot a screen shot for fb though
15:34:25 <LindaG> I did too
15:34:39 <LindaG> Well the bison did approach him
15:34:44 <Eric> Wish we would have been zoomed when the bison walked over there...he turned and looked at the dude
15:35:24 <Lori S> uh oh, is the bison headed to find him?
15:36:49 <LindaG> Looks fat or pregnant
15:37:02 <Lori S> Maybe it's more of a conserving energy thing for the bison
15:37:13 <LindaG> Maybe we can record a bison birth
15:37:24 <Dave from B™> alright...I dare you to ask a lady that question
15:37:31 <Lori S> "I could get him good but then I'd have to find more to eat."
15:38:24 <LindaG> Dave from B™, what question
15:38:59 <Lori S> LindaG, if she's fat or pregnant
15:39:02 <Dave from B™> Sorry, I'm not even going to go there. It is in poor taste.
15:39:18 <Dave from B™> I should have kept my mouth shut on this one
15:40:05 <LindaG> Lol A touchy subject for sure, but I was referring to a bison
15:40:43 <Lori S> Had a WOMAN ask me "When are you due?" years ago when I was wearing a huge shirt. I said "I suppose 9 months after I get pregnant,"
15:41:10 <LindaG> Lori S, lol good answer
15:41:29 <JarnoO> OF
15:43:06 <Dave from B™> I'm sure you have heard the saying thatolder people loose their filter. I'm amazed at some of the things that come out of my mom's 88 year old mouth. But, we all get that way at some point.
15:43:41 <Kevin L™🌵> We know Dave.
15:43:45 <Lori S> Hello Ryan. You missed an almost goring
15:43:48 <Ryan(home)> Made it home
15:43:54 <Ryan(home)> Saw the screenshots lol
15:44:02 <Dave from B™> hahaha Kevin
15:44:29 <Dave from B™> I think the skiier just needed an extra push. He was tired
15:44:36 <LindaG> I do t ask when women are due seems to me I learned my lesson about that
15:44:51 <LindaG> *dont
15:45:53 <Dave from B™> Yep....It's never a good idea to talk about a lot of body parts; stomch being one of them.
15:50:48 <Lori S> LindaG, you see that steam wisp to right of and just downstream from Castle just across the river?
15:51:54 <Kevin L™🌵> Wonder if that is the same one.
15:54:08 <LindaG> Lori S, oh I got up
15:54:46 <Lori S> so do you see where I mean?
15:55:16 <LindaG> Yes
15:55:18 <Lori S> not Sprinkler. down from there
15:55:40 <Lori S> Is that Deleted Teakettle?
15:56:20 <Dave from B™> Isn't Terra Cotta Group down there as well?
15:56:32 <JarnoO> just behind the bridge on the Sawmill bank, Lori?
15:56:46 <JarnoO> Sawmill side*
15:56:57 <LindaG> Deleted is a cone
15:57:09 <Lori S> About that area is where I saw soemthing erupting last eve.
15:57:29 <Lori S> At least, lots of steam I don't usually see there
15:58:30 <Kevin L™🌵> Ready Linda?
15:58:51 <Kevin L™🌵> Wait, it is Graham today.
15:59:01 <LindaG> If you follow river to left at end of bank, that we can see, i think is where deleted is
15:59:31 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, yeah grahams turn
15:59:48 <Lori S> Maybe if someone can do a video capture of then?
15:59:58 <Lori S> Let me find the time
16:00:24 <LindaG> Next time I in or maybe Graham will go there
16:00:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I am not sure where he is but I have to leave. If nobody is on, I have to go to OF.
16:00:35 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, I'll take
16:00:49 <Kevin L™🌵> OK released.
16:01:01 <LindaG> Got it
16:01:36 <Betty> thanks Kevin :-)
16:01:39 <Lori S> 16:49 ish
16:02:13 <ynpvisitor37> that cone is deleted
16:02:21 <Lori S> Just curious if it was something or just steam drifting over from Castle area
16:02:54 <lindaGp> Lori S, see it? the cone
16:02:59 <Lori S> yep, somewhere in that area
16:03:10 <Lori S> Yes, I see the cone
16:03:14 <Lori S> Thx
16:03:31 <Lori S> What's steaming to its right?
16:03:34 <lindaGp> to the right on other side is a cone also I forget name
16:03:53 <lindaGp> chimney?
16:03:58 <Dave from B™> Doesn't the one to the right have Chimney in its name?
16:03:59 <JarnoO> Chimney Cone if I recall correctly
16:04:01 <lindaGp> not sure
16:05:20 <Betty> Chimney is on this side of the bw, to the right
16:06:05 <Betty> chimney cone, to be correct
16:06:19 <Lori S> I think what I saw was on the other side of the walk but not sure
16:06:50 <lindaGp> Betty, thx
16:07:00 <Lori S> Holy crap. STEAMBOAT
16:07:20 <Betty> yeah!!!!!
16:07:37 <Betty> thx for the heads up Lori
16:08:04 <lindaGp> I think how forgot
16:08:05 <Betty> looks like 1542
16:08:08 <Lori S> can I put in GT?
16:08:16 <lindaGp> whoohoo
16:08:23 <JarnoO> 1542 E maj
16:08:31 <lindaGp> lLori S, sure
16:08:56 <JarnoO> go ahead, Lori :) everyone's getting an SB entry on their name
16:09:20 <Betty> Dome ie
16:09:31 <lindaGp> beat new
16:09:34 <JarnoO> shorter interval this time around. Hopefully it continues to shorten
16:09:40 <lindaGp> no beat me too it
16:09:59 <Betty> LC ie
16:10:08 <Dave from B™> woohoo
16:10:28 <Lori S> JarnoO, I think I got that last one too
16:10:29 <Ozzie> Goodnight Steamboat
16:11:09 <Betty> You wanted to go, Dave. It decided to go before you arrive, as usual
16:12:43 <Lori S> I was all looking up features on the map and happened to glance at the seismo. :)
16:12:47 <Dave from B™> Yep...that's SB
16:13:32 <Dave from B™> 47 this year 79 total in this active phase
16:13:38 <Betty> nice improbable poof
16:14:37 <Dave from B™> and in the meaningless last 100......median stays the same at 7d17h46m
16:14:46 <JarnoO> darn... unlikely to get 52 or 53 this year. I so hoped it would at the beginning of this year
16:15:04 <Dave from B™> Mean drops 13h23m to 132d14h40m. I can't wait until the 2 get close to each other
16:15:18 <JarnoO> does anyone have some spare superheated water lying around? :P
16:15:26 <Dave from B™> 48 is most likely for 2019. I predict less for next year.
16:15:54 <Ryan(home)> Yay!
16:16:43 <Lori S> Best thing is it went shorter this time.
16:16:49 <Lori S> Interval I mean
16:16:51 <Betty> now, if Giantess decided to go...
16:17:08 <Dave from B™> Ryan, are you attempting a SB in 2020?
16:17:17 <Ryan(home)> I hope so
16:17:29 <Ryan(home)> I got really screwed in 2019
16:17:45 <JarnoO> I'm thinking 35-40 Steamboat eruptions next year, might be less depending on what kind of damage a possible disturbance could inflict
16:18:58 <Dave from B™> yes you did with the road construction
16:19:01 <Lori S> JarnoO, It zapped several D's last summer
16:19:05 <lindaGp> how are you here?
16:19:19 <Lori S> And, yes, Ryan(home), you did get screwed.
16:19:22 <lindaGp> Joe are you here?
16:19:57 <JarnoO> obviously I'm hoping Steamboat stays active for another 2 or more years or so, but I'd honestly be fine with no more major eruptions until the end of the next decade
16:20:12 <JarnoO> or longer
16:20:18 <JarnoO> maybe not
16:20:22 <JarnoO> I
16:20:28 <JarnoO> Í'm off, enjoy your day
16:20:33 <JarnoO> darn enter key
16:20:49 <lindaGp> JarnoO, bye
16:20:49 <Betty> goodnight Jarno
16:21:11 <Lori S> Bye Jarno. Every Steamboat from now on in this series is a true gift.
16:21:49 <Betty> did I mention I have 3 1/2 weeks of holidays from now on? :-)

18:01:13 <lindaGp> good night Joe and all
18:01:52 <Joe> night Linda, thanks for covering today
18:12:30 <Eric> Hopefully I haven't screwed up anyones streaming here...if I did, apologies ahead of time.
18:13:19 <Eric> I am re-working the streams to you can manually set flash to the default video stream if you want it, but otherwise it will just use HLS and ignore flash all together.
18:13:36 <Eric> I will finish fixing it in the morning, but should be in a reasonable working state right now.
18:14:12 <Eric> This should make this page work by default for 99.9% of people who come here.
19:05:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Well I see I missed Steamboat.
19:11:09 <ynpvisitor2> That is what you get for watching the news.
19:16:56 <Kevin L™🌵> I was making last minute Christmas things.
