06:20:38 <GO BREAKFAST> Morning
06:23:05 <GO BREAKFAST> Yesterday was a nice start to my trip. I was even able to send the BHI text because Gmail makes it easy
06:24:58 <GO BREAKFAST> No buffet at OF due to norovirus that has been going around
06:27:02 <ynpvisitor12> hope your day is great
06:28:21 <GO BREAKFAST> I will go check Grand after breakfast
06:28:36 <GO BREAKFAST> Unless Joe posts it.
06:29:08 <GO BREAKFAST> What was up with the false Grand post yesterday?
06:29:28 <Joe> dark and foggy last night nothing seen
06:30:08 <GO BREAKFAST> Stas were great when i went to bed
06:30:54 <Joe> Turban was huge, I think someone thought it was Grand and posted it vas Grand
06:31:58 <Joe> I got a couple Lions last night but that is all
06:32:19 <Joe> cannot see OF right now
06:34:35 <GO BREAKFAST> Ok, we are losing the moonlight this week.
06:34:59 <GO BREAKFAST> Thanks for any times you post. They will help me.a lot
06:36:27 <GO BREAKFAST> Trails are good due to last weeks slow, even Aurum and BH area. Could get slick if theres no snow this week
06:36:48 <GO BREAKFAST> I may go down basin later today
06:37:04 <Joe> I think OF erupted but can barely see the dining room lights
06:38:35 <GO BREAKFAST> 10d10h in SB, it has slowed this winter, like last. Hope it rebounds for summer
07:03:01 <Kat> Good morning!
07:03:31 <Joe> Hi Kat, could not see OF due to fog, you will have to watch for the next.
07:03:53 <KevinS> Good morning!
07:05:45 <Kat> OK - thanks Joe!
07:10:29 <Kat> Cam stuttering is awful!
07:10:47 <Dave from B™> Aurum or Pump back there in this mess?
07:11:18 <Dave from B™> Morning Kat, Joe, KevinS, numbers
07:11:39 <Joe> Hi Dave
07:12:11 <KevinS> Hi Dave

07:16:17 <Joe> 0715
07:30:31 <Kat> Good to see Graham in the basin early!
07:31:41 <Dave from B™> -8 won't stop Graham
07:32:49 <Kat> :)
07:37:17 <Dave from B™> It seems SB is progressing. Probably still a day or so away
07:38:14 <Ryan (desk)> logger sure seems more promising
07:43:13 <Kat> Light is amazing
07:43:15 <Dave from B™> poor cam
07:43:24 <Dave from B™> yep...nice pink
08:08:23 <ynpvisitor58> Why is the cam on OF?
08:09:43 <Kat> We missed an iterruption earlier -so was waiting to catch the next
08:09:52 <Kat> eruption*
08:10:18 <ynpvisitor58> Thanks
08:13:02 <Kat> Finally OF
08:18:03 <Kat> Grand plume!
08:19:06 <Dave from B™> Castle is pumping steam as well
08:19:41 <Kat> Sure is
08:21:45 <Kat> The fog is wicked!
08:25:10 <KevinS> Beautiful Lake static
08:25:59 <ynpvisitor91> We don't have fog either.
08:27:57 <Ryan (desk)> bsb
08:28:55 <Kat> :)
08:29:50 <Dave from B™> I wonder where Graham is headed after Grand
08:29:58 <Rice> I still love watching the static playback from the washburn cams. Yesterday was amazing with the clouds.
08:40:15 <Kevin L™🌵> BH around 12 to 2
08:50:03 <Dave from B™> What's the dentist doing today?
08:51:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Ears Dave.
08:52:29 <Dave from B™> Your dentist is multi talented
08:53:12 <Kat> Morning Katie
09:02:56 <Rice> Anyone using Chrome? Do you still have to turn Flash On then Off, to get video? I still do.
09:03:19 <Katie> Yes and yes
09:03:37 <Rice> Thanks.
09:06:03 <Dave from B™> Yes and no for me
09:07:06 <Katie> I don't usually have to turn it off every time I open the page in Chrome, but I did today. Chrome might have updated since I last opened it on Thursday.
09:25:19 <Kat> Down- controls too
09:25:33 <Kat> spoke too soon!
09:25:47 <ChrisO> i would ask if your surprised, but that horse has been beaten enough
09:26:22 <Kat> :lol:
09:35:04 <kcmule> OF ie static
09:35:32 <Kat> :)
09:35:51 <Kevin L™🌵> it's the cam's fault!
09:36:32 <Kat> Yes it is!!
09:39:07 <Kat> There you go!! :)
09:42:05 <LindaG> Hi all
09:42:16 <LindaG> Nice light
09:43:19 <Kat> Hi Linda
09:44:42 <LindaG> Kat, hi
09:47:22 <LindaG> What bad weather is happening that delta is so busy?
09:48:35 <Kat> Somewhere in that foggy mess is Graham!
09:49:13 <ynpvisitor89> Looks like he's still in the Sawmill Group.
09:49:18 <ynpvisitor89> Based on his posts.
09:49:23 <LindaG> Kat, dont lose him 😉
09:50:09 <LindaG> A bit nippy at 1 degree
09:50:31 <ynpvisitor89> It's gonna be a high of 38 today
09:50:32 <Kat> OH - I lost him early this morning Hahah
09:50:35 <ynpvisitor89> roads are going to be awful
09:50:47 <LindaG> Kat, 😊
09:51:06 <Kat> LindaG, we started out at -8
09:51:14 <LindaG> ynpvisitor89, oh wow, a slush fest
09:51:26 <Kevin L™🌵> 😎
09:51:41 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, 🌞
09:51:45 <Kat> Exactly! Only 60 in Florida today
09:52:42 <Kat> BSB
09:52:45 <LindaG> 30 here right now
09:52:54 <LindaG> Yay bsb
09:53:08 <LindaG> I missed bee yesterday
09:53:17 <ynpvisitor115> 30, time to plant the maters.
09:53:43 <ynpvisitor89> Was not expecting to hear the indicator call.
09:53:52 <Kat> I saw it out of the corner of my eye!
09:54:13 <Kevin L™🌵> I need to build a greenhouse and get some stuff going.
09:54:44 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, hop to it😉
09:55:03 <Kat> I need someone to walk through the steps to send the texts....
09:56:17 <LindaG> Are you set up on gmail?
09:57:36 <Lori S 🌤> Morning All Morning
09:57:56 <Kat> Yes I am..
09:58:18 <Kevin L™🌵> Morning Lori
09:58:25 <LindaG> I believe you open email, the to address is the same as the from. Put some character in subject and type the alert in body and send. I have not done this yet.
09:58:28 <Kat> Hi Lori
09:58:54 <LindaG> morning lori morning
09:59:24 <Lori S 🌤> Nice to see those in basin posts from Graham. :)
09:59:33 <Kat> :)
09:59:46 <LindaG> Lori S 🌤, a man on a mission
10:00:17 <Lori S 🌤> LindaG, obviously since he was out there at day break in this temp!
10:00:30 <Kat> Controls released Katie
10:01:34 <Dave from B™> Graham is a great GT poster
10:02:27 <LindaG> Dave from B™, must be on verizon
10:02:30 <ynpvisitor115> He out posts Kevin.
10:02:48 <Kevin L™🌵> That he does.
10:03:07 <Lori S 🌤> Living vicariously from just an hour away :/
10:03:31 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, 🙁
10:03:48 <Dave from B™> C'mon, Lori! Get on your skis and get to OF:)
10:03:49 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, not for you for lori
10:03:57 <ynpvisitor115> Cam does not like me. Off to better things.
10:04:12 <KevinS> Please say he has Verizon. I dropped AT&T for Verizon this year. I would love a working phone when I get there.
10:04:30 <Lori S 🌤> KevinS, Verizon does much better in the park
10:04:32 <Katie> Verizon works there. It works better in winter when there isn't network congestion.
10:04:36 <Lori S 🌤> I have Verizon
10:04:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Verizon works best in the park.
10:05:06 <Lori S 🌤> Dave from B™, Yeah, I'll call 911 before I head in and tell them to meet me at mile 3
10:05:56 <Lori S 🌤> However, Noom has lost me 7 pounds so far so maybe by next winter.
10:06:01 <LindaG> I have Verizon and it was good, especially after they put tower over by fishing bridge
10:06:18 <Lori S 🌤> There's a tower by FB?
10:06:31 <Katie> YOU have lost you 7 pounds! Noom is just a tool. YOU are using the tool.
10:06:31 <Dave from B™> Lori, I think you could at least make it mile 5. No hills:)
10:06:51 <LindaG> Some where in that area by lake and fishing bridge
10:07:11 <Lori S 🌤> Katie, thanks. But, Noom keeps me from eating 2 cups of ice cream insteah of 1.
10:07:14 <Kevin L™🌵> This would work Lori:
10:07:36 <Katie> Noom wouldn't work if you weren't making it work. Give yourself some credit!
10:07:44 <Lori S 🌤> Katie, :)
10:08:59 <Eric> Morning all
10:09:10 <LindaG> Eric, morning
10:09:14 <Lori S 🌤> Kevin L™🌵, :thumbsup: But I forsee me smacking into a bison in teh road cuz I can't stop. LOL
10:09:26 <Lori S 🌤> Morning Eric
10:09:36 <Eric> Wow..Lake static is crazy cool
10:09:51 <Eric> Like a painting!
10:10:04 <Lori S 🌤> Wow, look at that! Thx Eric
10:10:07 <LindaG> Eric, wow that is nice
10:10:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I would hit a tree Lori.
10:11:00 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, tree might be better than bison
10:11:11 <Lori S 🌤> LindaG, ROFL for sure
10:11:23 <Kevin L™🌵> I guess a tree wouldn't get mad.
10:11:33 <LindaG> 😊
10:13:21 <Lori S 🌤> On my 3rd cup of coffee since 0830. Must be Monday.
10:14:40 <Eric> SB logger data is looking good...wouldn't be surprised to see it pop today
10:15:07 <Eric> Then again, I wouldn't be surprised to see it wait for 4-5 more days either :-P
10:15:29 <Eric> giantess boils?
10:15:39 <Lori S 🌤> Eric, A true SB expert.
10:15:58 <Eric> Yep...experts know :-D
10:16:18 <Lori S 🌤> ...that they have no clue. LOL
10:16:24 <Eric> Yep!
10:16:28 <Ryan (desk)> Now adays thats called ab eruption, eric lol
10:17:08 <Dave from B™> Morning Eric. It looks like you another fun adventure this weekend.
10:17:14 <Eric> Interesting steam pulses on Giantess
10:17:33 <Eric> Yep...great snowshoe up to JRO to see Helens in the sun :-D
10:17:42 <Lori S 🌤> Yo, Graham, look east. :)
10:18:07 <Katie> I would love for Giantess to play for Graham.
10:18:15 <Lori S 🌤> Katie, me too!
10:18:24 <Lori S 🌤> After that flight kerfuffle and all
10:19:05 <Kat> Eric, Giantess has been doing that all morning
10:19:06 <Katie> That might have worked out. It kept him (and me) from dining at Mammoth - where there is a Norovirus outbreak
10:19:22 <Eric> eek
10:19:25 <Lori S 🌤> Katie, what? of my
10:19:30 <Lori S 🌤> oh my
10:19:42 <Eric> I heard many of the national parks have Noro issues
10:19:51 <Kat> Glad you didn't go there Katie
10:19:57 <Eric> Hard winter for NPS employees
10:20:32 <Katie> Graham invited me to dinner on Saturday. Due to his flight issues... Maybe for the best! Not that I would wish his flight issues on anyone!
10:21:02 <Lori S 🌤> X marks the spot
10:21:21 <Lori S 🌤> Lake getting prettier
10:21:40 <Eric> Lake is the same image from 7:30 this morning :-P
10:21:52 <Eric> Maybe it's prettier in your mind :-D
10:22:02 <Lori S 🌤> Oh, that's funny.
10:22:31 <Eric> Webcam is down for the count :-(
10:22:44 <Lori S 🌤> Flashbacks of teh movie Speed
10:22:50 <Katie> GRRRR
10:23:01 <Lori S 🌤> on teh Lkae cam, not this one
10:23:33 <Katie> Or both
10:24:01 <Lori S 🌤> One thing I hope not to read: Giantess on static
10:24:25 <Lori S 🌤> Wait, now I just read that
10:24:28 <Lori S 🌤> lol
10:25:33 <Katie> At least we'd have Graham's photos.
10:26:05 <Dave from B™> Lori S, are you amusigin yourself this morning?:D
10:26:27 <Dave from B™> Who took my spellcheck?
10:26:36 <Lori S 🌤> Dave from B™, as always
10:27:11 <Kevin L™🌵> It wore out Dave.
10:27:47 <Kat> Linda stole it Dave
10:27:55 <Eric> Lori is burning through her caffeine :-D
10:28:17 <Lori S 🌤> Eric, That
10:30:32 <Eric> Alright...I think I have figured out what was killing the capture of the /getvideo command. Things have been updated and video is not generating.
10:30:58 <Eric> BH looks hot
10:31:02 <Katie> Controls were donw, too, fyi
10:31:16 <Katie> So there maybe more than one issue
10:34:12 <Eric> No, this was related to a capture issue I was having, nothing to do with cam being down.
10:34:17 <Eric> BSBS
10:34:35 <Eric> We seem to be getting close on BH.
10:35:19 <Dave from B™> Katie, did you camp in YNP over the weekend?
10:35:29 <Katie> Yup
10:35:48 <Eric> wow...very cool! Where did you camp, mammoth?
10:36:00 <Katie> Yes, Mammoth
10:36:18 <Dave from B™> Yes, emphasis on cool
10:38:01 <Katie> But not cold. No sub-zero temps last weekend. But, between 1:30pm and 2:30pm on Friday, it dumped 4" of snow rapidly. Thursday night was exceptionally warm. Friday I never put my coat on (thermal base layer, jeans and hoodie). Saturday was cooler. Yesterday was very sunny after a clear and cold morning (but still in the teens, so warmish for the time of year).
10:38:28 <Eric> Tent, camper?
10:39:11 <Katie> Back of my Jeep.
10:39:44 <Eric> ahh, that works.
10:40:17 <Eric> I have trouble sleeping in cars....when you are 6'5" tall, I need something like a suburban to even be able to lay down flat.
10:40:35 <Dave from B™> What did you do Katie?
10:40:58 <Eric> I could probably put an insulated canopy on my truck and sleep in that...8ft bed would work :-D
10:41:37 <Katie> being 5'5" has its advantages - as does being 6'5". But at 5'5", with back seats fold down and front seats all the way forward, I can lay straight out in the back of the Jeep Wrangler.
10:41:58 <LindaG> I'd have no problem, I'm just under 5 ft
10:42:20 <Eric> Nice! Yes, being short definitely is an advantage when car camping!
10:43:14 <Eric> I wonder if we are seeing some power shifts on the hill, first with BW coming back to life and now strong pulses from Giantess
10:43:59 <GO GIANTESS> Since graham isn't here :-D
10:44:01 <Dave from B™> Giantess does this every winter
10:44:07 <Ryan (desk)> Yup
10:44:11 <Katie> I folded down seats and tested when considering Jeep purchase. A taller person would fit laying straight out, at an angle. I don't have to angle. I have my gear on one side and my gody on the other.
10:44:12 <Ryan (desk)> and summer
10:44:20 <GO GIANTESS> Doesn't do it every year after BW eruptions!
10:44:39 <Ryan (desk)> and I dont think BW "came back to life"
10:44:53 <GO GIANTESS> ok, cleared it's throat
10:45:00 <GO GIANTESS> better than dead
10:45:09 <Dave from B™> It did its best imitation of ear spring
10:45:26 <Ryan (desk)> I think that theres some energy moving around the general area of pump
10:46:01 <GO GIANTESS> pump has been way more active since the ear spring disturbance
10:46:30 <Ryan (desk)> But then that area has always been variable
10:46:51 <Katie> BSB
10:46:52 <Ryan (desk)> A one off eruption of BW doesnt shock me
10:47:03 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1046
10:47:42 <GO GIANTESS> Shocked me :-D
10:49:33 <Dave from B™> Ryan, has Micah mentioned if there is any water in Boardwalk or is it dry?
10:50:48 <Ryan (desk)> Not sure hes been out there
10:55:31 <GO GIANTESS> Hopefully graham will make a note
10:57:14 <Katie> wait for us, Bee
11:05:13 <Dave from B™> No visible water at Boardwalk per Graham
11:05:39 <Dave from B™> He is warming up and will be back out soon
11:08:23 <Lori S 🌤> I just went outside briefly without a coat to grab something out of storage. And, a cold breeze blew up the bottom of my sweatshirt. My sweatshirt is too big. LOve.
11:09:12 <Dave from B™> Lori, you know what that means!
11:09:30 <Lori S 🌤> Dave from B™, I get to go shopping? ;)
11:09:32 <Dave from B™> It's time to go shopping!
11:09:39 <Lori S 🌤> jinx
11:25:19 <Ryan (desk)> can we look at Bee now? :P
11:36:20 <Dave from B™> See Bee Steam
11:37:06 <Kevin L™🌵> Steam Bee Steam. Would you like it on the rocks? Would you like it with a fox?
11:38:13 <Dave from B™> Great, Kevin. I was hoping someone would pickup the reference!:)
11:40:46 <Kevin L™🌵> You will be reading those books again soon dave.
11:45:36 <Lori S 🌤> Sounds like if Dick and Jane go to Mammoth for breakfast, they may very well get actual green eggs
11:45:57 <Cooper> haha.
11:46:00 <Cooper> Pooe Cooks
11:46:21 <Kevin L™🌵> I used to have green eggs. :(
11:46:47 <Lori S 🌤> Poor hygiene habits
11:47:08 <Lori S 🌤> Kevin L™🌵, oh, Kevin, sorry for the remainde
11:47:13 <Lori S 🌤> r*remainder
11:47:27 <Lori S 🌤> *REMINDER
11:48:11 <Li daG> 🙁
11:48:21 <Kevin L™🌵> :)
11:48:29 <Lori S 🌤> good timing Linda
11:48:44 <LindaG> Lori S 🌤, hi
11:49:09 <Lori S 🌤> Hello LindaG Hello
11:49:23 <LindaG> 🌞
11:49:29 <Kevin L™🌵> I will have a bobcat proof coop (not to be confused with the Coop on this page) when I get the new chicks.
11:49:42 <Cooper> haha, Hi Kevin/
11:49:43 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, excellent
11:49:51 <Cooper> I guess I am also Bobcat Proof.
11:49:58 <LindaG> Cooper, hi
11:50:07 <Cooper> hi Linda
11:50:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Do you know why chicken coops have 2 doors?
11:50:17 <ynpvisitor53> And getting new chicks
11:50:29 <LindaG> No
11:50:30 <Lori S 🌤> Cooper, so, you should play for Missoula
11:50:40 <Lori S 🌤> U of M
11:50:41 <Cooper> haha
11:50:47 <Kevin L™🌵> If they had 4 doors they would be a chicken sedan.
11:50:58 <LindaG> Lol
11:51:03 <Lori S 🌤> Kevin L™🌵, Blah ha ha ;)
11:54:12 <Lori S 🌤> Time for lunch. Sacrificial Bee departure
11:54:13 <LindaG> Anyone ever been to horseshoe bend, AZ?
11:54:25 <Cooper> Lori S 🌤, bye
11:54:28 <Cooper> thank you.
11:54:33 <LindaG> Lori S 🌤, bye
11:54:58 <Katie> I've been to Horseshoe Bend
11:55:48 <LindaG> Katie, how was it, worth a 2 hr drive?
11:57:28 <Kevin L™🌵> I was there but about 35 years ago.
11:57:41 <Katie> 2 hour drive only gets me to Butte. ;) 4.5 - 5 hours to Gardiner or West Yellowstone
11:58:19 <Ryan (desk)> BSB 1158ie
11:58:32 <LindaG> Hmm I think we are talking about different things
11:59:38 <LindaG> I'm thinking about driving 2 hrs from GC south rim to Horseshoe and AZ
11:59:45 <Katie> Must be...
12:00:11 <LindaG> *bend
12:00:25 <Katie> Oh! Yes! The day we were at Horseshoe Bend was crappy light and kinda hazy, so I didn't see it at its best. I would go again, though - partly because I haven't seen it at its best.
12:00:32 <GO GIANTESS> I have been to Turkey Neck Bend :-P
12:00:49 <LindaG> 😊
12:01:10 <Eric> and I have seen pictures of horseshoe bend
12:01:27 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, do you remember if you like it Kevin?
12:01:54 <LindaG> It look real nice, guess it depends on the weather
12:02:54 <ynpvisitor103> Graham must be stuck at Bulger, maybe he fell in a hole
12:03:30 <Eric> Graham's hole is out at LGB :-P
12:03:45 <ynpvisitor103> ?
12:04:35 <ynpvisitor103> what hole is that?
12:04:49 <Eric> There is a feature Graham was watching at LGB and nobody knew the name, so we called it graham's hole.
12:05:46 <Eric> It might or might not have a name, I think JSJ thought it might be a named feature, but I don't remember if they reached a conclusion.
12:05:53 <Kevin L™🌵> Don't remember much about it. I do know there are great Navajo Tacos around there.
12:12:43 <Dave from B™> Eric, The LGB feature did have an name. Let me see if I can find Graham's posts from that day
12:14:43 <Dave from B™> It's UNNG-FTN-7
12:15:05 <Eric> Ok...way to ruin a good story Dave!
12:15:05 <Ryan (desk)> "name"
12:15:12 <Eric> and a good name :-P
12:15:43 <Eric> I will still call it Graham's hole, you can all mentally reference it as UNNG-FTN-7
12:16:15 <Dave from B™> I remember Graham talking to Lynn and TSB and there is a name...must not be accepted. Let me ask Graham
12:19:22 <ynpvisitor103> are you texting Graham Dave?
12:19:37 <Dave from B™> yes.
12:19:45 <ynpvisitor103> too funny
12:20:04 <Dave from B™> unng-ftn autocorrected to ungodly-fun
12:20:05 <ynpvisitor103> ask him if he fell in a hole
12:20:34 <Eric> I am pretty sure Lynn and TSB didn't know. It was JSJ that had photos/comparisons
12:20:58 <Eric> Which is crazy for Lynn to not know something at LGB!
12:21:17 <Eric> But it is a very far out, small eruption
12:22:06 <Dave from B™> Graham says it has no name
12:22:29 <Ryan (desk)> Why crazy?
12:22:45 <Ryan (desk)> Theres several hundred holes out there. Dozens of which exhibit ephemeral activity.
12:22:46 <Dave from B™> Lynn has spent more time than ANYONE at LGB
12:22:47 <Katie> BSB
12:22:51 <Eric> It's Graham's hole!
12:22:53 <Ryan (desk)> MAybe there wasnt a name to remember :)
12:23:20 <Dave from B™> Does anyone have the Bible and is 7 in there?
12:23:42 <Katie> Don't we all have the bible on our phones?
12:23:45 <Dave from B™> Eric, that is not a legal name unless you are naming it after the cracker:)
12:24:03 <Eric> Yes, I would consider Lynn to be the worlds expert on LGB :-D Even though JSJ and Tara's brother (name ?? I forgot :-( ) might have gaps of info they she does not have.
12:24:07 <Dave from B™> I used to until I changed from Android to Iphone
12:24:17 <Eric> Scott?
12:24:19 <Katie> Page 262
12:24:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Dave Eric
12:24:41 <Eric> Kevin
12:24:45 <Katie> and 276 and 584
12:25:52 <Katie> "FTN-7 is visible from the distant boardwarlk only when it is in eruption; otherwise, the crater appears empty. When active, it palys every 11 to 23 minutes. The duration is 5 minutes and the eruption reaches as high as 10 feet."
12:26:34 <Ryan (desk)> TSB has questionable entries on several small and ephemeral features.
12:27:06 <Ryan (desk)> I'd use it with some extra resources on some of those features. FTN 7 fits the category of that.
12:27:21 <Eric> That is a fairly close description Katie...didn't realize it was in this addition. Don't think it was in the previous one
12:27:29 <Dave from B™> I wish others would publish books
12:27:44 <Ryan (desk)> I wish Scott would log his sources.
12:27:50 <Eric> My guess is he added it from graham's observations.
12:28:05 <Ryan (desk)> Then we could just reference the source.
12:28:05 <Eric> and his observations since he spent time down there with graham
12:28:23 <Eric> I assume their his observations Ryan
12:28:30 <Ryan (desk)> They arent all.
12:28:30 <Eric> Ask him directly :-P
12:28:44 <Eric> It's not like he isn't accessible
12:28:55 <Ryan (desk)> I dont have to. He did not observe the behavior of UNNG RVG 4 in 2014 - I did.
12:29:22 <Ryan (desk)> And I know every single gazer who also observed it.
12:29:26 <Ryan (desk)> Same with Slot in 2014.
12:30:09 <Eric> Ahh, then if you have questions about others...ask him :-D
12:30:09 <Ryan (desk)> Both have descriptions that are flat out wrong.
12:30:18 <Eric> then let him know
12:30:25 <Ryan (desk)> We did.
12:30:29 <Eric> ohh, ok
12:30:36 <Ryan (desk)> Apparently it did not help
12:31:39 <Ryan (desk)> GoY irks me something serious. It has no references - and I assure you that TSB did not directly observe everything in that book.
12:32:17 <Dave from B™> I'll go back to my other statement. Someone else should write a book, then
12:32:34 <Betty> hi all
12:32:39 <Cooper> Hi Betty
12:32:48 <Betty> hi Cooper
12:32:49 <Kevin L™🌵> I know when he does updates he is very limited in what he can do by the publisher.
12:32:50 <Ryan (desk)> I own several dozen similar guidebooks in waterfalls, caves, plants, and rock art. All of them - even some with thousands of entries - documents their sources (or notes a lack there of).
12:32:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Guten hello.
12:32:58 <Dave from B™> It probably not get published like GOY because sources would make book too long but a manuscript like Lee W's on placenames would be perfect
12:33:05 <Cooper> Betty, did you break the cam
12:33:06 <Betty> hi Kevin L™🌵
12:33:16 <Betty> must be so
12:33:38 <Ryan (desk)> Dave, an electronic References document would cost nothing to be available for download.
12:33:59 <Betty> hi Ryan (desk), Dave from B™
12:34:05 <Dave from B™> Hi Betty
12:34:26 <Ryan (desk)> And also, Dave, I disagree with GoY as a "Bible". I dont think that it should be scrapped - theres a lot of GOOD things in it.
12:35:09 <Ryan (desk)> But as anyone who uses any resources should do - some basic background investigations find discrepancies in some of the things in it.
12:35:22 <Katie> Until there is a more comprehensive and authoritative text, it will remain that.
12:36:13 <Dave from B™> Katie, I was just going to say that.
12:36:33 <Ryan (desk)> This sint that big of a community - we all know who we can ask to double check things for any given thermal area.
12:37:01 <Katie> bsb
12:37:37 <Ryan (desk)> It is a great starter reference.
12:38:23 <Ryan (desk)> But anything ephemeral, minorly historical, and contemporarily confusing should be double checked.
12:39:40 <Dave from B™> Point taken, Ryan. It is an especially great reference for people getting started into gazing. That is why a publisher would take it on.
12:39:50 <Eric> All geysers are ultimately ephemeral :-P
12:39:54 <Dave from B™> After all, they want to sell books
12:40:11 <Eric> In geologic terms
12:40:48 <Ryan (desk)> This group is, mostly, beyond introductory geyser gazing.
12:41:58 <Ryan (desk)> Speaking only for those of us with our names on here - we all know enough to know we dont know a lot. Thats where I personally begin double checking what I am not 100% on.
12:42:06 <Dave from B™> Where can all this other research be put so we have EASY access to it
12:42:28 <Ryan (desk)> A personal trait which, granted, I only began doing a few months ago.
12:43:03 <Ryan (desk)> GT for starters. Lots of it is either in the park archives or the personal notebooks of the researchers.
12:43:14 <Ryan (desk)> The Sput is a GREAT resource.
12:43:20 <Ryan (desk)> As are the transactions.
12:44:06 <Katie> Wait for us again, please, Bee
12:44:15 <Ryan (desk)> While none are as simple to navigate as GoY - using GoY to determine a basic location for the thermal area, or a date/time of activity, will help rapidly narrow down where to look in the Sput/Transactions
12:46:18 <Katie> I have bought and continue to buy many bird books (print and digital) and apps. I love having multiple resources at my fingertips and in my pocket. I'd love to spend that much money on geyser books and apps. :)
12:46:36 <Katie> Write it/make it. I'll buy it.
12:46:53 <Eric> An interactive map tied to a wiki for entries would be the best source IMHO. We really need a curated digital mapping solution where geyser/holes/springs could be accurately located and described and then connected to a GT feature.
12:47:18 <KevinS> From the beginning I felt GoY was dated even on the lasted edition due to editing restrictions. However, it has a place in my backpack wherever I go in the park.
12:47:21 <Ryan (desk)>
12:47:23 <Eric> I was hoping Bill Keller would drive some sort of solution on this.
12:47:52 <Eric> Ya, that site is painful Ryan
12:47:55 <Ryan (desk)> Sput archives and transactions.
12:47:57 <Eric> OF
12:48:15 <Ryan (desk)> I think a Wiki on thermals would be a wonderful idea.
12:48:31 <Ryan (desk)> I can no manage it - I would happily contribute.
12:48:41 <Eric> I agree, GoY is a great starting point...we as a community could do much better on documentation of features.
12:48:42 <ynpvisitor101> Me too! I would LOVE an interactive map
12:48:55 <Katie> That would be awesome - but even better if accessible without connectivity.
12:49:10 <Ryan (desk)> Until then, I just send emails to the people who saw it
12:49:10 <Eric> Of course Katie...critical I would suggest.
12:49:38 <Ryan (desk)> You'd need books or articles on specific thermal areas or features.
12:49:48 <Ryan (desk)> Like..... the Transactions :D
12:49:56 <Katie> Hmmm... is there still water? Was that a short?
12:50:29 <Eric> good luck on that Katie :-P
12:52:04 <Dave from B™> Nice conversation everyone. We need someone who has the knowledge and a LOT OF FREE TIME.
12:52:39 <Ryan (desk)> OR a bunch of people with just enough free time :D
12:52:50 <Ryan (desk)> BSB
12:53:53 <Eric> I love caltopo...wondering if it could be a definitive source of features with the right dataset
12:54:45 <Ryan (desk)> Thats the nice thing about Wiki articles with references at the bottom - hard to argue against an original primary source :D
12:55:46 <Ryan (desk)> I think people dont like writing and sharing info in this group because you get destroyed by the masses. Its a lot harder to get picked apar if you have some kind of primary resource to reference your comments.
12:56:43 <Ryan (desk)> I'd pick apart GoY a lot less if I knew where he got his information from :
12:56:45 <Dave from B™> As a group/field ages, information starts to distort a bit.
12:57:25 <ynpvisitor103> some of the info in GoY is very outdated now
12:58:04 <Ryan (desk)> To his credit he managed to get the first two eruptions oSB into it and noted it could be the start of an active phase.
12:58:06 <Ryan (desk)> First few*
12:58:45 <ynpvisitor103> yes, his book was terrible timing for that. I remember what a panic he was in trying to get info
12:59:28 <Ryan (desk)> Little Squirt
13:01:26 <Ryan (desk)> If one can access it, Marler, Day, et al is a GREAT source
13:04:24 <ynpvisitor103> cam op, can you still see stream?
13:04:37 <Katie> Nope
13:04:54 <ynpvisitor103> too bad
13:05:29 <Ryan (desk)> I think something on the hill is erupting.
13:05:31 <Ryan (desk)> Either BH or BHI
13:05:49 <Katie> control screen is trying to load now -
13:05:54 <ynpvisitor103> have Dave text Graham
13:06:58 <ynpvisitor103> steam on static does not look big enough for BH
13:07:46 <ynpvisitor13> :thumbsup:
13:07:47 <Ryan (desk)> I agree
13:07:49 <Katie> Control window up. Not bee
13:07:52 <Ryan (desk)> cam is back
13:07:57 <Ryan (desk)> BSB though
13:08:17 <ynpvisitor103> Graham might have to choose between BH and Grand
13:14:19 <Ryan (desk)> bsb?
13:15:00 <Eric> yep
13:15:18 <Ryan (desk)> I didnt see water
13:22:25 <Betty> Grand?
13:24:10 <ynpvisitor103> no plume
13:26:44 <ynpvisitor13> Grotto ie
13:26:52 <Dave from B™> Graham is at Grand
13:27:12 <Katie> Then we will have Turban updates. :)
13:27:44 <Dave from B™> We already have them:)
13:27:53 <Dave from B™> last was 1325
13:27:58 <Eric> smart choice...grand is a sure could be a few more hours
13:28:01 <Katie> Oh. yeah.
13:29:47 <ynpvisitor103> we are at 5 hr 22 m, since last Grand. Yesterday afternoon's was 7 hr 17m, he could have quite a wait if that happens again
13:30:21 <Eric> ohh, didn't realize we were that early
13:30:31 <Dave from B™> I hope he can get both
13:30:32 <Eric> few more turban cycles for him
13:30:33 <Kevin L™🌵> Lot of steam at BH
13:30:59 <ynpvisitor103> I think BH first
13:30:59 <Kevin L™🌵> Not BH Depression
13:31:43 <Kevin L™🌵> You can tell what my mind is on. Went to type Dep and it came out BH.
13:34:08 <Ryan (desk)> BSB
13:43:27 <Katie> Daisy
13:43:52 <ynpvisitor103> my stream is frozen
13:44:03 <ynpvisitor103> oh, there it goes
13:44:31 <ynpvisitor103> Daisy plume is huge, Grand will be even bigger
13:48:56 <Dave from B™> I'm surprised Graham didn't post Daisy
13:49:24 <Ryan (desk)> Can we check BH? lol
13:50:12 <ynpvisitor103> I'm guessing we missed a BSB
13:50:22 <ynpvisitor103> he was looking at Old Tardy
13:50:27 <Ryan (desk)> 16min, probably not
13:50:42 <ynpvisitor103> the last interval was 9
13:51:10 <Ryan (desk)> ie to ns interval. With durations of 4min or so, "
13:51:12 <Ryan (desk)> ie
13:51:22 <Ryan (desk)> " can shift the interval a lot
13:51:47 <ynpvisitor103> 1325ns to 1334ns
13:52:07 <Ryan (desk)> Ooops
13:52:15 <Ryan (desk)> that 1325 should have been ie.
13:52:16 <ynpvisitor103> your posts
13:52:16 <Ryan (desk)> Whoops
13:52:19 <ynpvisitor103> oh, ok
13:52:25 <ynpvisitor71> Grand is flooding water
13:52:29 <Ryan (desk)> Nice ctach, thanks
13:52:42 <ynpvisitor103> time for Grand I guess, or a delay
13:52:53 <ynpvisitor103> let's go
13:53:31 <Katie> If Grand doesn't go now, next likely time is during OF window
13:53:57 <ynpvisitor103> if it is flooding water, good chance it will go
13:54:04 <ynpvisitor103> I am assuming that was from G
13:54:15 <Lori S 🌤> ynpvisitor103, same here
13:56:22 <ynpvisitor103> If last Turban was 1325, this is a delay
13:58:02 <Katie> turban?
13:58:06 <Katie> Grand
13:58:15 <ynpvisitor71> Grabd
13:58:30 <ynpvisitor103> yeah
13:58:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Naw, Turban major.
13:58:52 <Lori S 🌤> Kevin L™🌵, u funny
13:58:53 <ynpvisitor103> now there is a plume
13:59:11 <Dave from B™> There we go
13:59:13 <ynpvisitor101> Wow!
13:59:21 <Betty> even I can see that :-)
13:59:29 <Lori S 🌤> Betty, :)
13:59:33 <Lori S 🌤> Hi Betty
13:59:35 <Ryan (desk)> Kevin, I will enter a Turban major so you can flag it :love:
13:59:43 <Lori S 🌤> Ryan (desk), ROFL
13:59:46 <ynpvisitor103> 31 minute Turban interval
14:00:06 <Betty> hi Lori S 🌤
14:00:50 <Ryan (desk)> BH check? :P
14:01:34 <Ryan (desk)> I am heading out - later
14:02:33 <Dave from B™> Bye Ryan
14:02:44 <Betty> later Ryan
14:02:59 <Dave from B™> Turban start
14:03:13 <ynpvisitor103> yes, we saw that Dave, on GT
14:03:14 <Lori S 🌤> Bye Ryan (desk)
14:03:33 <ynpvisitor103> D0
14:08:27 <Betty> looks like a 22nd
14:08:32 <Betty> nd
14:08:43 <Dave from B™> wow...22!
14:08:46 <ynpvisitor103> how can you tell?
14:08:48 <Betty> 2nd, damn fat fingers
14:08:54 <Kevin L™🌵> 22 burst? Wow!
14:08:56 <ynpvisitor8> :)
14:09:08 <ynpvisitor103> Good thing Graham is there, he will let us know
14:09:22 <Betty> as I said, it looked like a 2nd
14:09:32 <ynpvisitor8> Warnock told the story of a 16 burst :D :D :D
14:09:55 <Kevin L™🌵> Best I got was 5
14:09:55 <ynpvisitor103> 1 burst
14:09:56 <Kat> Betty -I call that Fat Finger Syndrome! LOL
14:10:20 <ynpvisitor103> steam can be elusive
14:10:25 <Dave from B™> 5...nice. I did see a 4...that was fun
14:10:36 <ynpvisitor8> Kevin L™🌵, five is my record too
14:11:19 <KevinS> One uppers! 4 is my best. And only once.
14:11:21 <Kevin L™🌵> It was a lot of fun.
14:11:22 <ynpvisitor103> BH??
14:11:39 <Katie> 3rd?
14:11:57 <ynpvisitor103> It was a 1 burst
14:12:05 <Kevin L™🌵> T1Q
14:12:06 <ynpvisitor8> it was one burst
14:12:20 <Katie> Grotto confusion...
14:12:28 <Kat> :)
14:12:33 <Betty> Kat, it is more likely long nails, for my fingers is one if the few things on me that is thin ;-)
14:12:38 <ynpvisitor103> Bijou is the culprit I think
14:12:48 <Katie> Boots on the snow is so useful! :0
14:12:50 <Betty> go Giant
14:13:02 <Betty> it is Katie
14:13:05 <Lori S 🌤> Been here since 8 am with not a single call. When do I get one? Grand start.
14:13:20 <Betty> :-p
14:13:32 <ynpvisitor103> other than the start, there was not much to see LoriS
14:14:19 <Lori S 🌤> I was trying to talk, do math, and watch Grand at the same time. :p
14:15:07 <Dave from B™> It is impossible to tell bursts this time of year. It is easy to see increase in activity but it is hard to tell if Grand stops
14:15:50 <Lori S 🌤> The cabin has 2 bursts, er bedrooms... LOL
14:16:58 <Dave from B™> It could be 2 bursts if Kevin is doing your plumbing!:D
14:17:47 <Kevin L™🌵> At least I KNOW how to do plumbing Dave!
14:18:35 <Dave from B™> I set myself up for that one
14:19:56 <KevinS> Way to own it Dave. But you still have the right for payback on that burn.
14:20:56 <Dave from B™> I've been taught to be nice to my elders:)
14:21:19 <Dave from B™> Besides, Kevin has a Packer hangover this morning
14:21:29 <Dave from B™> OF
14:21:52 <KevinS> Packers had a hangover last night.
14:22:43 <Kevin L™🌵> You mean that girl scout troop Green Bay sent to play?
14:24:13 <Kevin L™🌵> It would have been fun to have the teams in Superbowl 1 play in the Superbowl on the 100 year anneversiry
14:24:38 <Kevin L™🌵> Put a typo in there for Dave so he would feel at home.
14:24:43 <ynpvisitor103> who was that?
14:24:57 <ynpvisitor103> the first Super Bowl was 100 years ago?
14:25:11 <Kevin L™🌵> No, in '67.
14:25:24 <ynpvisitor103> how come they are only on 50 or something in their media?
14:25:42 <Dave from B™> Becuase Super Bowl didn't start until AFL and NFl merged
14:25:48 <ynpvisitor103> who played in it?
14:25:52 <kcmule> it's NFL
14:25:58 <Dave from B™> They were Championship games prior to that
14:25:59 <kcmule> *it's NFL's 100th year
14:26:06 <ynpvisitor103> Kevin said 100 anniversary, threw me off
14:26:18 <Kevin L™🌵> The AFL was a new league that competed with the NFL. Packers won over the chiefs.
14:26:39 <ynpvisitor103> so you wanted a repeat of that
14:26:53 <ynpvisitor103> is that indy?
14:26:54 <Dave from B™> In fact, the Super Bowl wasn't actually called the Super Bowl until #3
14:27:02 <Katie> Indyt
14:27:10 <ynpvisitor33> Yes indy
14:27:10 <Dave from B™> nice one 103
14:27:25 <Betty> yay
14:27:26 <ynpvisitor103> indy before Betty, that's a first
14:27:33 <Dave from B™> Graham went the other direction?
14:27:41 <Betty> hope Graham makes it in time
14:27:56 <Kevin L™🌵> Each league had it's own championship game. but they didn't play each other until '67. Tickets were $5 and $7.50 and it wasn't a sellout.
14:28:01 <LindaG> Back again
14:28:07 <Katie> Sent text, but haven't received it yet...
14:28:13 <LindaG> And just in time
14:28:22 <Katie> Okay. Got it.
14:28:33 <Betty> 103, no more start inds by me, since the new cam I´m lagged >30 seconds :-(
14:28:38 <Kevin L™🌵> He better run!
14:28:41 <Kat> LindaG, HI
14:28:55 <LindaG> Kat, hi
14:29:00 <LindaG> Thx for txt
14:29:07 <ynpvisitor59> I got the text
14:29:07 <ynpvisitor103> lags suck
14:29:13 <Kat> Also, thx for text!!
14:29:16 <ynpvisitor103> except you do know what is coming...
14:29:28 <ynpvisitor103> looks like that group knows to stay
14:29:36 <Kat> :)
14:30:10 <Kat> Where o where is Graham??
14:30:14 <ynpvisitor103> Graham had to have known indy was close
14:30:22 <Katie> Looks like they know where to stand, too.
14:30:27 <Kat> I would think so
14:30:54 <LindaG> Experience cedar bee-ers
14:31:01 <LindaG> Oh my
14:31:06 <LindaG> Lol
14:31:13 <Kat> :)
14:31:23 <LindaG> Experienced bee-ers
14:31:36 <Kat> :lol:
14:31:55 <Dave from B™> He's probably between Lion and Grand
14:32:10 <Kat> In a run....
14:32:37 <Katie> Don't fall, Graham!
14:33:03 <Kat> :)
14:36:17 <Katie> Wind sheer
14:36:25 <Betty> BH
14:36:39 <ynpvisitor103> you weren't lagged there Betty
14:36:59 <Dave from B™> Did Graham ever show up?
14:37:08 <Katie> yeah, she was - 30 seconds
14:37:16 <ynpvisitor103> maybe now
14:37:17 <Betty> I think there he is
14:37:35 <Kat> Bee was 1435
14:37:40 <ynpvisitor103> he waved
14:37:58 <Kat> :)
14:38:40 <Kat> I missed the wave!
14:38:47 <Katie> indy stopped
14:39:18 <Kat> Nice Bee - I can almost hear it!
14:39:42 <Dave from B™> Speak up. I can't hear you:)
14:39:59 <Kat> :D Dave from B™,
14:41:30 <LindaG> Nice
14:42:09 <Kat> Really Nice
14:42:51 <Kat> Thanks!
14:43:17 <Lori S 🌤> Call during Grand. Boss's wife walks in during Bee. Come on karma. WT Heck
14:43:50 <LindaG> Little cub ie
14:45:35 <Dave from B™> Yeah!!! W-2's are done...all 17 of them
14:45:47 <LindaG> Dave from B™, 👍
14:46:05 <LindaG> Graham just entered little squirt
14:46:23 <LindaG> Little rules
14:46:33 <ynpvisitor71> w-2's? you do not have an accountant for stuff like that?
14:46:36 <KevinS> Lori S 🌤, I got a call during BH. Feel the pain. Markets are closed and I got one call all day. Just the luck.
14:47:15 <Dave from B™> Nope...only an acct for our taxes
14:47:29 <Lori S 🌤> Dave from B™, we have you beat. 7
14:49:17 <Dave from B™> 7 > 17 ......New math?:)
14:49:43 <LindaG> 😊
14:49:50 <Lori S 🌤> Beat in the sense that we have less to do.
14:50:05 <Lori S 🌤> And we have an accountant do them. :)
14:50:36 <Lori S 🌤> Lori Math
14:53:23 <Dave from B™> Nothing is free. Quickbooks charges $700/year to do our payroll. So, I guess they are my pseudo accountant
15:03:15 <Katie> See if Graham's note pans out
15:04:37 <Dave from B™> He didn't stick aroun
15:05:39 <Dave from B™> ..
15:05:40 <Dave from B™> ..
15:05:40 <Dave from B™> ..
15:05:41 <Dave from B™> .
15:05:41 <Dave from B™> .
15:05:43 <Dave from B™> ..
15:05:45 <Katie> he was right!
15:05:52 <Dave from B™> Aurum 1505ns
15:06:11 <Betty> yeah
15:06:24 <LindaG> 😊
15:06:31 <Dave from B™> Katie, are you driving?
15:06:38 <Katie> I am
15:06:57 <LindaG> Lucked out bee and now aurum, may play the lottery
15:07:07 <Dave from B™> After Aurum can you zoom in on the Aurum railing. It looks like part of it is missing or the erpution just melted the snow off of it.
15:07:25 <Dave from B™> just melted snow
15:07:44 <Dave from B™> Some years there can be a seriuos ice bowl on the bw
15:08:19 <Dave from B™> Thanks
15:11:04 <Katie> having an Aurum "heads up" was really cool. :)
15:14:01 <Betty> LC
15:14:13 <Dave from B™> Lion is splashy per Graham
15:30:53 <Dave from B™> Katie, will you be betting on sports when it gets up and going in Montana soon?
15:31:59 <Katie> Probably not. I never visit a sports book when we are in Vegas. BUT... I might play some of the football games that have fallen under sports betting and thus not been allowed to MT residents.
15:33:15 <Dave from B™> I can't wait. I believe I can actually make money on the NFL picking 1-3 games each week.
15:33:32 <Cooper> dangit, I missed Bee/
15:33:40 <Dave from B™> I was 1-0 this last weekend
15:34:18 <Dave from B™> Next year, I'll even give you my picks AHEAD of time
15:34:50 <Katie> :) Good.
15:35:59 <Dave from B™> Where did you see the moose?
15:36:42 <Katie> Round Praire
15:36:47 <Katie> *prairie
15:37:08 <Dave from B™> Nice....Did you know there used to be a saloon there?
15:37:13 <Katie> there was another bedded down near confluence, from what I hear, but I didn't see it.
15:37:42 <Katie> a saloon at Round Prairie?
15:37:58 <Dave from B™> Yep, in the early Cooke City mining days
15:38:18 <Dave from B™> Do you have a copy of 2 volume Yellowstone Story?
15:38:35 <Katie> I figured that would have been when - I almost framed my question that way.
15:38:53 <Katie> I don't have that book in my collection yet.
15:39:20 <Katie> I listened to most of Empire of Shadows this weekend (have 2.5 hours left in the audio).
15:39:29 <Dave from B™> It's a must. I need to get a hardback copy. My paperpack is in shambles
15:40:09 <Katie> I'll look to add that one to my physical collection.
15:41:19 <Katie> I almost didn't post my critique of the narration of that, but did. I knew someone would likely take offense, but it is what it is.. My opinion
15:42:27 <Katie> I don't know if you saw that...
15:43:20 <Dave from B™> I didn't see it, Katie
15:44:48 <Katie> Insiders Hub post
15:45:52 <Katie> Others must like his narration work - he has done enough of it. Any time he read quotes from journals or news print of the day he used an affected voice that just didn't appeal to me at all.
15:50:30 <Dave from B™> Just read your post. In my collection but unread thus far
15:53:48 <Dave from B™> It's dry but I consider Yellowstone Story the History Bible of YNP
15:55:52 <Dave from B™> Katie, do you think early explorers induced eruptions to see all of them. I've often thought it was a possiblity.
15:56:24 <Katie> I don't think the earliest explorers would have a clue how to induce. Later visitors? Sure.
15:57:14 <Dave from B™> So, you think they didn't throw ANYTHING into thermal features?
15:57:28 <Dave from B™> I know Marler induced
15:59:48 <Katie> I think guides and visitors certainly did. And Giant, Giantess and Fan & Mortar in the same 2 day period certainly defies credulity based on the patterns of recorded history. But, then, Steamboat over the last 2 years has defied credulity of a decade ago, so...
16:03:04 <Katie> Daisy
16:05:04 <Dave from B™> That brings up another interesting question for all....How much has human interaction (see Ear spring as an example) influenced geyser eruptions. Since everything wasn't damaged by humans, maybe early explorers did see everything without indicing
16:05:11 <Lori S 🌤> 45 minutes
16:05:56 <Dave from B™> til SB data, Lori? or until you have a drink?:)
16:06:05 <Lori S 🌤> yes
16:06:12 <Lori S 🌤> :p
16:06:19 <Lori S 🌤> until SB update
16:06:49 <Katie> Interesting question, and hard to say. No one is inducing SB now. Yet its behavior the last couple years is extraordinary. Things change, some due to human action and some due to natural processes.
16:06:56 <Lori S 🌤> But I'm eating green grapes. Does that count as wine?
16:07:09 <Dave from B™> haha
16:07:43 <Dave from B™> With all the garbage thrown out of Ear Spring, it makes you wonder what is in other geysers
16:07:58 <Dave from B™> or hot springs
16:08:36 <Katie> Yup... and what a shame that is.
16:08:41 <Lori S 🌤> Probably a lot of hats. From what I've seen in the basins.
16:08:58 <Lori S 🌤> And park maps
16:09:08 <Dave from B™> Yes. Hats everywhere. I've almost lost mine a couple of times.
16:09:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Well Aurum knew I was in the depot.
16:09:49 <Lori S 🌤> And Bob thinks the little string under the chin looks silly. Practical reason it's there!
16:10:30 <Katie> Chin straps should be mandatory in geyser basins. ;)
16:10:45 <Dave from B™> It may be silly but it is necessary.
16:10:56 <Lori S 🌤> Katie, agree 100%. And they should be deployed, not just dangling there.
16:12:04 <Dave from B™> Time for me to head out. Have a great evening everyone!
16:12:23 <Lori S 🌤> Night Dave from B™
16:12:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Good knight Dave.
16:13:30 <Dave from B™> I hope SB hit 50F
16:14:58 <Lori S 🌤> Tantalus water gage shows a noticeable increase since Noon
16:15:36 <Lori S 🌤> well, since maybe 9 am really
16:16:11 <Lori S 🌤> temp and volume both which is promising
16:19:11 <Betty> time for sleep, night all
16:19:27 <Lori S 🌤> Goodnight Betty
16:19:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Good knight
16:38:43 <LindaG> Nice light
16:52:25 <ynpvisitor35> Wow SB
16:52:32 <ynpvisitor35> Look at that YVO spike
16:52:44 <ynpvisitor35> Thats as big as an eruption
16:53:39 <Lori S 🌤> Nice!
16:54:13 <Ryan> Except it wasnt an eruption
16:54:36 <Lori S 🌤> yet
16:54:49 <Lori S 🌤> Dave said he oped for at least 50. Got his wish and then some
16:54:59 <Lori S 🌤> *hoped
16:57:31 <Ryan> There was a big spike right before it. Maybe its not crashing
17:00:59 <LindaG> Coldnt figure out what I was missing on my screen, I must have closed the seismo window by accident
17:02:53 <Lori S 🌤> LindaG, It just refreshed on the GT screen >>>
17:04:15 <ynpvisitor39> SB went up to 60 without erupting, wow.
17:04:45 <ynpvisitor39> what do you think Ryan?
17:06:03 <LindaG> Lori S 🌤, 😊
17:09:12 <Ryan> I think I am really glad I was not there for that event.
17:09:20 <Ryan> I would have died from a heart attack.
17:09:36 <Lori S ☁️> Ryan, :thumbsup: same here
17:09:51 <ynpvisitor39> What next?
17:10:02 <Ryan> We wait.
17:10:11 <ynpvisitor39> I'll be interested to see tomorrows. What kind of recovery from that?
17:10:22 <Lori S ☁️> It will go or won't go in the next hour to 50 years
17:10:35 <Katie> Well, that's profound
17:10:44 <Lori S ☁️> Katie, :D
17:10:52 <Ryan> I'd expect a huge dip. But it hit over 50 just before that and didnt die.
17:11:09 <KevinS> I agree with you Lori!
17:12:02 <LindaG> To go or not to go, that is the question
17:12:08 <Lori S ☁️> KevinS, safest pediction there is. Well, unless it goes in the next 59 minutes. LOL
17:12:23 <Lori S ☁️> LindaG, LOL
17:12:47 <ynpvisitor39> will it skip a cycle?
17:13:09 <LindaG> Lori S ☁️, 😊
17:13:15 <ynpvisitor39> do you keep the logger data Ryan, has there been a 60 with no eruption?
17:13:27 <Lori S ☁️> Ryan, I expect huge dip too. Then a pause of 30-ish hours at least
17:13:47 <Lori S ☁️> But, then, you know I am always wrong.
17:14:00 <ynpvisitor39> except when you're not
17:14:18 <KevinS> Actually there was a nice basin wide energy increase today. Who know if that is a pattern, but IF SB is having minors, an eruption seems to follow 12-48 hours later.
17:14:26 <Lori S ☁️> Like on September 7th, 2018. :)
17:14:55 <CraigC> with that much energy released, my GUESS is day and a half to 2 days to get back to a possible eruption
17:15:00 <Lori S ☁️> ynpvisitor39, that was for you
17:15:16 <Ryan> I wont speculate.
17:15:23 <Ryan> It was too big to know what comes next.
17:15:32 <Ryan> I dont keep logger data.
17:15:38 <Lori S ☁️> Wait, CraigC, we agree on something.
17:16:01 <CraigC> haha, did you say the same thing?
17:16:24 <Lori S ☁️> Well, that there would be a drop and a pause of at least 30 hours
17:16:39 <CraigC> yep, that is what I would expect
17:16:52 <CraigC> caveat being that it does the unexpcected
17:17:11 <Lori S ☁️> CraigC, SB do the unexpected? Why, that NEVER happens
17:17:23 <Ryan> It could be erupting right now, haha.
17:17:33 <Lori S ☁️> It should try our for Survivor
17:17:35 <CraigC> is TNM down?
17:17:38 <CraigC> YNM
17:17:54 <ynpvisitor39> YNM is working
17:17:55 <Lori S ☁️> CraigC, looks good to me
17:18:32 <Ryan> I mean that it could be erupting and we wont know until the YNM upload lol
17:18:40 <Lori S ☁️> Wonder why Vixen soil didn't update
17:19:00 <ynpvisitor39> I'm surprised someone did not write a note.
17:19:23 <Lori S ☁️> Schrödinger's Steamboat
17:19:24 <LindaG> What is vixen soil?
17:19:32 <Ryan> 39, for what?
17:19:36 <Ryan> The big event?
17:19:45 <Lori S ☁️> LindaG, a temp logger that measures Vixen soil
17:20:12 <LindaG> Lori S ☁️, ah thx
17:20:32 <Lori S ☁️>
17:21:12 <LindaG> Lori S ☁️, thx , that was my next question
17:21:53 <Lori S ☁️> Tat one tends to climb prior to a SB major as well
17:26:16 <ynpvisitor39> Ryan, I meant a note about the spikes, yes.
17:26:50 <Ryan> Huh, I guess I can
17:27:47 <LindaG> Bummer
17:28:01 <ynpvisitor39> no need to, yet that was what I was referring to
17:28:17 <ynpvisitor39> and yes, bummer
17:30:20 <Katie> Looks like the whole park just lost DSL
17:30:25 <LindaG> Lol Grand Canyon webcam tells people if cam is black its nightime
17:31:13 <LindaG> Well at least it's not the cam
17:32:09 <Katie> I think it was a hiccup. I saw all the statics disconnected - but then they were right back.
17:33:21 <Ryan> posted
17:38:33 <ynpvisitor39> night all
17:39:25 <Lori S ☁️> X marks the spoy
17:39:27 <Lori S ☁️> spot
17:47:30 <GO SHOWER> Back in room. I guess you can figure iut where i was all day. Thanks for the BHI texts
17:48:43 <Lori S ☁️> GO SHOWER, GO HOT TODDY as well?
17:51:51 <GO SHOWER> Will go to dinner later. Was cold morning, not sure of the low. Watmed up well
17:52:25 <GO SHOWER> I almost took off my leggings, glad i kept them on as they protected me during the BH shower as i went past it
17:53:06 <GO SHOWER> I saw a few Bulger eruptions :)
17:53:21 <Katie> thanks for the Aurum heads up. I had camera on it before the start thanks to that.
17:54:20 <Lori S ☁️> GO SHOWER, just a few
17:54:22 <GO SHOWER> Not sure how long it looks good like that, but glad you saw it. Yesterdays gap was longer
17:54:48 <GO SHOWER> I was watching from Sponge
17:54:55 <Katie> I didn't see your note until it was 10-12 minutes old. I put camera on Aurum and within a couple minutes, it erupted.
17:55:45 <GO SHOWER> I hope Kevin enjoyed it
17:56:42 <GO SHOWER> Would have been nice if BH waited another minute so i would have been on the right side at the start. Thanks for the BSB posts, i was watching them drop
17:56:43 <Katie> He was absent, of course.
17:58:24 <GO SHOWER> He can watch the replay
20:50:43 <ynpvisitor71> Great, a dark circle, with a white X!
