00:05:38 <ynpvisitor104> oh Joe forgot the wc
00:06:13 <ynpvisitor104> nice splash from bee
00:10:58 <ynpvisitor104> well enjoy bee, going to see if sky is clear enough to see the meteors
05:44:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> I see Joe did it again, stealing Bee
05:44:49 <ynpvisitor87> I wonder if Joe saw meteors while he was at Aurum?
05:45:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah true, glad he made it there in time
05:45:43 <ynpvisitor87> If seeing it hours later on capture is stealing...
05:46:07 <GO STEAMBOAT> we probably missed another one?
05:46:40 <ynpvisitor4> well, it was a fast trip for sure :(
05:46:59 <ynpvisitor87> Speedy snowmobile
05:48:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> maybe he watches the webcam from the snow lodge most of the time
05:49:26 <ynpvisitor87> Maybe. Steamboat is taking its time
05:51:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> still a ay and a half shorter than the last interval so far
05:51:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> day
05:53:02 <GO STEAMBOAT> Jan 4 1602 was the first last year ... wil lit beat that?
06:00:36 <GO STEAMBOAT> still no Norris logger data
06:56:28 <CraigC> hey folks
06:57:12 <GO STEAMBOAT> morning Craig. nice OF view
06:57:14 <CraigC> whoa, visibility on one of my shifts.... how novel
06:57:19 <CraigC> hey Graham
06:57:37 <GO STEAMBOAT> we can fix that
06:57:44 <CraigC> Joe here?
06:58:17 <ynpvisitor4> Yes, take the cam :)
06:58:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> #4 maybe?
06:58:26 <CraigC> hey Joe, how are you
06:58:33 <GO STEAMBOAT> ah, the reveal
06:58:54 <ynpvisitor4> good Craig, and you?
06:59:13 <CraigC> good, nice to see stuff here at 7 for a change
06:59:51 <Joe> Yes a few minutes ago it wsa all fog
07:00:01 <Joe> was*
07:00:23 <Joe> OF
07:00:27 <CraigC> of
07:00:52 <GO STEAMBOAT> pretty
07:01:09 <CraigC> good way to start a shift, have it erupt then free roam
07:01:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like there will be snow for my chift this afternoon
07:01:42 <CraigC> GO STEAMBOAT, what time are you on, 12, or 1600?
07:01:56 <GO STEAMBOAT> 1300
07:02:04 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
07:02:04 <Joe> IF grand is not erupting the OF window it will soon
07:02:41 <CraigC> maybe I'll get SB on my shift, too :)
07:02:56 <Joe> during the*
07:03:25 <Joe> Be sure to aim the camera at SB
07:05:09 <CraigC> would SB be over OF? I've never checked a trajectory.....yet
07:06:18 <Joe> I do not know, don't you have the SB preset button :)
07:07:52 <Joe> that white behind the gray might be Grand
07:08:23 <Joe> but hard to tell with the fog
07:08:43 <CraigC> looks too left
07:08:59 <Joe> yep
07:10:13 <CraigC> do you think there was a Minor on Castle earlier?
07:11:42 <Joe> At anout 4ish when I switched to down basin Castle was doing what it is now
07:11:42 <CraigC> quite a burst of steam there at Anemone area
07:12:48 <CraigC> damn
07:13:01 <CraigC> lost the visibility just like that
07:14:06 <Joe> Low stuff when Grand erupts its plume will show above
07:16:13 <GO STEAMBOAT> with "will show" being questionable
07:16:47 <CraigC> ;)
07:16:48 <Joe> for sure :)
07:19:21 <JarnoO> morning all
07:19:34 <CraigC> hey Jarno
07:21:06 <GO STEAMBOAT> view was good till Craig showed up
07:21:25 <CraigC> touche'
07:21:49 <Cooper> Morning Jarno, Craig, Graham
07:22:03 <Cooper> and others
07:22:34 <JarnoO> morning Cooper
07:22:47 <Joe> I was thinking that but did not want to say Graham
07:23:17 <Joe> , after say
07:23:33 <CraigC> :)
07:23:44 <CraigC> commas matter
07:24:08 <Joe> :thumbsup:
07:26:16 <CraigC> 20 mins ago I was all upbeat about my shift...
07:26:23 <CraigC> ;)
07:34:25 <Cooper> This is the time Giant would go
07:34:30 <Cooper> :p
07:42:19 <CraigC> lifting slightly
07:44:25 <Cooper> shhh, it must not know you are still here
07:44:39 <Cooper> its testing you:p:p:p
07:46:58 <GO STEAMBOAT> darn, I will miss the brewmasters dinner at Mammoth on 17th. wow $70 ... maybe thats a good thing I will miss it
07:47:33 <ynpvisitor37> I’ll send you some beer instead
07:48:48 <GO STEAMBOAT> thank you
07:49:25 <GO STEAMBOAT> a few years ago I was at OF when they had that dinner but it was sold out. not doing it at OF in recent years
07:51:47 <ynpvisitor37> Do you ever gaze in the dark in winter?
07:53:11 <Cooper> Off for fishing, wish me luck. Only 22 Degrees(F)
07:55:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> rarely 37 - i am out all ay so usually very tired in the evening. I did go out to se grand with Will one night, nd i did the BH dash after getting the text, mainly just heard it from the bike path since it was snowing and dark
07:56:16 <ynpvisitor37> It takes more energy in the winter to get around
07:57:38 <GO STEAMBOAT> also ended up at Giant in 2008 waiting for marathon recovery which was way late so I was hoping for an eruption
07:57:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> i heard the hot period, it was a long and strong one
07:57:57 <GO STEAMBOAT> but no Giant
07:58:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least I saw it earlier that week
07:59:04 <ynpvisitor37> Are you planning on spending any park time away from old faithful?
08:00:41 <GO STEAMBOAT> i usually try to go down to Fountain for a few hours. will see what Micah is doing and the weather .. i go to Canyon sometimes
08:01:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> and i usually walk out to Black Sand and Biscuit basins
08:01:22 <GO STEAMBOAT> last year I went to W Thumb
08:03:34 <GO STEAMBOAT> if SB erupts at night I may try and get there on one of the tours
08:03:50 <GO STEAMBOAT> last year it erupted at mid-day so no chance to get there
08:15:38 <CraigC> clearing, yay
08:20:05 <CraigC> churn?
08:20:24 <CraigC> or sprinkler
08:21:13 <CraigC> bison
08:47:19 <CraigC> of
08:50:46 <CraigC> hey Tom
08:50:51 <TomK> Good mornng
08:51:24 <CraigC> I don't have anything to pass on, we had awful visibility until right before this OF eruption
08:54:08 <CraigC> there were 3 bison in the back part of the meadow just this side of Spasmodic
08:56:05 <CraigC> TomK, you can take it as soon as you're ready
08:57:50 <TomK> I'll take t now
08:58:14 <CraigC> I'm off
08:58:25 <TomK> bye
09:17:00 <TomK> Web cam down!
09:17:21 <GO STEAMBOAT> what did you do to it?
09:18:21 <TomK> I dunno
09:18:54 <GO STEAMBOAT> i guess we should blame Craig for pulling the plug when he left
09:19:49 <TomK> Works for me
09:21:39 <TomK> Got it back, nothing to see
09:26:39 <ynpvisitor94> Is this the UGB or San Francisco?
09:30:58 <TomK> ;(
09:35:42 <TomK> Steam at castle. Hollar if you see water
09:36:38 <JarnoO> technically steam is evaporated water... :)
09:38:58 <TomK> Technically, steam is invisible, and we ALL call re-condensed water droplets "steam"
09:39:56 <ynpvisitor72> yep, we see vapor. Steam is invisible
09:40:05 <TomK> ;)
09:42:34 <ynpvisitor72> the big geyser just hit 8.5 days
09:52:51 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Is that Aurum?
09:54:24 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Don't think it lasted long enough.
09:54:51 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Time to do a little training. πŸš‚
10:10:43 <TomK> OF window
10:54:41 <ynpvisitor46> Daisy
10:58:03 <ynpvisitor46> OT

12:51:35 <Cooper> Oh, I see SB logger functional again
12:53:31 <Cooper> Hi Tom
12:53:35 <ynpvisitor91> I think Graham has Saturday, yet not sure if he is on today

12:54:03 <ynpvisitor76> <--Craig
12:54:14 <ynpvisitor91> he's usually on time. Go Steamboat should show up at any moment
12:54:32 <Cooper> Hi Craig
12:54:32 <ynpvisitor91> there he is
12:54:58 <Cooper> there who is?
12:55:00 <ynpvisitor91> he starts off with Daisy and Grand during OF window
12:56:22 <ynpvisitor91> Have a good Birthday Tom K!
12:56:45 <TomK> TY, but how did you know?
12:56:47 <Cooper> Turban

13:12:53 <Betty> hi Graham
13:14:35 <Betty> OF window
13:20:12 <CraigC> hey Gary
13:20:31 <Betty> hi CraigC
13:20:31 <Cooper> Not Gary Here- But Hello Craig
13:20:38 <CraigC> hey Betty
13:21:08 <ge> Hi Craig. Enjoy your facebook journeys
13:21:09 <CraigC> I use Chrome, and I went back to changing the "Allow" in the URL area
13:21:12 <Cooper> what about me craig:p:p:p
13:21:45 <CraigC> when I toggled tthe On?Off flash in the settings it gave me a 20 second delay
13:22:35 <ge> Firefox 71 does not have the settings brick
13:23:11 <CraigC> ge, do you have the little paddlelock icon to the left of the URL?
13:23:23 <ge> yes
13:23:33 <CraigC> what happens when you click that?
13:23:55 <CraigC> I get some settings, and I change Flash to "Allow"
13:24:43 <ge> No flash, just permissions set to allow
13:25:25 <CraigC> oh
13:25:31 <CraigC> I have Flash
13:25:33 <ynpvisitor91> did OF erupt?
13:25:44 <Betty> not yet
13:25:53 <CraigC> ynpvisitor91, doubt it, people all still waiting at benches
13:25:59 <ge> Are you using firefox 71?
13:26:07 <CraigC> I use Chrome
13:26:25 <ynpvisitor91> Craig I forgot to check static for the OF indicator...
13:26:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> a lot of them on streaming too
13:26:59 <ge> Weird--plays ok on the nps page, but not here
13:27:38 <CraigC> there's your OF
13:27:43 <GO STEAMBOAT> OF
13:27:54 <ynpvisitor91> I'm delayed
13:29:15 <ynpvisitor91> by a lot I guess...
13:29:38 <Betty> maybe you need a refresh?
13:29:51 <ynpvisitor91> maybe, not going to do it now though
13:29:57 <ynpvisitor91> I see it on static
13:31:17 <ynpvisitor91> OF now, for me
13:31:23 <ynpvisitor91> 3 minutes, wow
13:31:39 <Betty> 4 minutes
13:31:40 <Cooper> wow, our OF's are done already
13:31:51 <ynpvisitor91> 4, that is longer than I have ever had
13:32:09 <Betty> really weird
13:32:18 <Cooper> didn't Jarno say that lag and delay builds up over time.
13:32:20 <Betty> where do you live?
13:34:46 <GO STEAMBOAT> looks like a few peeps at Grand
13:35:38 <Betty> how is your mom doing?does she improve?
13:36:40 <Cooper> mine?
13:36:52 <Cooper> she is okay, she is in Arizona visiting her mom.
13:36:59 <ynpvisitor50> go
13:37:16 <Cooper> go, go where/what?
13:37:25 <ynpvisitor50> GO's mom
13:37:27 <Betty> no, GrahamΒ΄s. but glad yours is ok, Cooper
13:37:42 <Cooper> oh, did I miss something?
13:38:03 <GO STEAMBOAT> oh, she has brnchitis, so coughing a lot and weak
13:38:18 <GO STEAMBOAT> or bronchitis
13:38:32 <Cooper> Grahahm, sorry to hear that.
13:38:34 <Betty> hope she gets well soon
13:38:47 <GO STEAMBOAT> thanks
13:39:26 <Betty> turban maybe
13:40:26 <Betty> hi Craig M
13:40:37 <Craig M> Hi Betty
13:56:02 <Betty> snow
13:57:50 <Betty> RRiverside ie?
13:59:15 <GO STEAMBOAT> i think we will see more steam
13:59:51 <JarnoO> Grand
14:00:10 <Betty> nice start
14:34:57 <ynpvisitor25> SB needs to erupt before 1602 to be ahead of 2019 pace
14:58:04 <GO STEAMBOAT> OF
15:01:36 <Betty> Lion ie
15:33:23 <ynpvisitor37> I wonder when the minors started on SB.....not sure graph is accurate
15:40:56 <JarnoO> likely on January 1 seen that it doesn't record diurnal variation, probably due to an ice dam
15:41:43 <JarnoO> since that, on that day, it doesn't*
16:18:04 <Cooper> Afternoon Everyone
16:18:21 <ynpvisitor2> Cooper, hi
16:19:50 <Cooper> Hi 2(linda???)
16:20:21 <ynpvisitor2> Cooper, yup I'm lurking
16:20:37 <ynpvisitor2> Haha but not anymore
16:20:58 <Cooper> you see, I am Linda deyector
16:21:01 <Cooper> detector**
16:21:11 <LindaG> 😊
16:21:12 <Cooper> my keyboard has you on radar
16:21:27 <LindaG> Hello everyone cooper outed me
16:21:35 <Cooper> sorry
16:21:42 <Cooper> but not sorry:p
16:21:58 <LindaG> Cooper, I was just too lazy to change my name
16:23:21 <Cooper> you runnign the cam Linda? or is it still Graham?
16:23:36 <LindaG> I'm not
16:24:20 <LindaG> Weekend off
16:24:53 <Cooper> nice
16:25:51 <GO STEAMBOAT> so SB is off to a later start this year :(
16:26:43 <Cooper> my prediction does not have it in the next few hours either
16:27:34 <LindaG> πŸ™ I predicted to lori 9d 8hrs and 20 min, be Interesting how close I come
16:28:12 <LindaG> Of course I'm am just totally guessing but I came real close to the last one
16:29:01 <Cooper> recently my predictions were ranging around 2 to 5 hours, but it was either 2 or 3 ago that I was lucky enough to get 0 minutes off, which was a first for me
16:29:17 <Cooper> and this one I am saying 3 hours after yours right about
16:29:42 <Cooper> I have it on a sticky note somewhere, but well. I am messy, and lost it under a pile of paper somewhere in a radius of 5 feet from me
16:30:04 <ynpvisitor47> you can find it Cooper, let us know your prediction
16:30:29 <ynpvisitor47> how close were you last time LindaG?
16:31:06 <Cooper> searcing
16:31:14 <Cooper> and still searching:p
16:31:42 <ynpvisitor47> you know it is not on the keyboard Cooper...
16:32:09 <LindaG> ynpvisitor47, I looking for my last prediction
16:32:13 <Cooper> aha, 9D 11H 15M, but because of the Temp thingy not being super accurate because of the broken period, that is based on only 1 of my prediction methods, I tend to use 2 others, but they both involve the temp graph
16:32:26 <Cooper> so yes, based on my prediction I say 9D 11H 15M
16:32:36 <ynpvisitor47> glad you found it
16:32:44 <ynpvisitor47> so tomorrow late morning
16:32:49 <Cooper> 47, if you don't mind me asking, 47 = Betty, Jarno, Craig, Joe?
16:32:58 <ynpvisitor47> time will tell. The temps seem low to me, nothing over 40 yet
16:33:26 <LindaG> I think I told lori 8d7hr3min and it was actually 8d5hrs and 52min.
16:34:05 <Cooper> I am trying right now to make a estimate based on the temp graph thingy....
16:36:37 <LindaG> I just realized we've been staring at OF a long time
16:38:16 <Cooper> now, my temp graph shows something a bit longer at 10 D 3 H 17 M, but based on the range of time the temp graph being down, the accuracy range of the math there is +/- 9 Hours, ish
16:38:37 <Cooper> but that is based on where I estimate the start of water to be
16:38:54 <LindaG> Cooper, πŸ‘
16:39:17 <Cooper> which is annoying, because I like exact numbers
16:39:53 <GO STEAMBOAT> of
16:40:00 <Cooper> not the range of where my equation could have put with the start of water being 18 hours long, and then +/- another 8 hours for my prediction window = 26 Hours. Bleck.
16:44:40 <LindaG> Oh I guess white out that why we were staring at OF
16:44:54 <ynpvisitor72> .
16:46:01 <Cooper> lovely conditions, I would love to be out htere right now.
16:48:54 <LindaG> Cooper, I'd like to be watching from my room at the snow lodge
16:49:04 <Cooper> haha
16:49:16 <Cooper> what its just a little snow, and it is only 22, that is not even cold
16:49:20 <GO STEAMBOAT> this s one day you head for the snow lodge before dark as it cou be drifting quickly
16:49:42 <Cooper> before dark yes, I like sleep
16:49:45 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> It was a good knight. 5-4 in OT.
16:56:39 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅, hi
17:00:45 <GO STEAMBOAT> thats a good win against the Blues
17:03:54 <ynpvisitor109> the humidity is 99%, the wind is blowing, it is very cold there now
17:05:00 <Cooper> 22 degrees, with 15 mile per hour wind speed, and 99% humidity makes it feel like what, 5 to 10 degrees?
17:12:11 <GO STEAMBOAT> at least the view improved
17:15:26 <GO STEAMBOAT> Bills need a score!
17:30:30 <LindaG> Ah finally
17:30:50 <LindaG> Although my screen is frozen
17:31:21 <Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅> Turn on the heat!
17:33:51 <LindaG> Arty maybe
17:34:34 <LindaG> Maybe not
17:42:31 <LindaG> Kevin Lβ„’πŸŒ΅, 😊
17:43:18 <LindaG> Oh no tied
18:38:59 <GO STEAMBOAT> goodnight, enjoy the nice view
