04:47:34 <Ryan (desk)> Nice timing
04:49:41 <ynpvisitor113> Bee?
04:50:22 <Ryan (desk)> Yup 0444ie
04:50:23 <ynpvisitor113> Yup, nice
04:50:47 <Ryan (desk)> Based on ruation I think that 0444 is probably near start
04:51:33 <LindaG> Good morning
04:59:36 <Ryan (desk)> Morning
05:00:28 <LindaG> No steamboat but we saw bee
05:02:43 <Ryan (desk)> I dont know when we will see SB, but I am not real hopeful on it being soon.
05:05:26 <Ryan (desk)> I really think the whole system has got some problems
05:07:06 <LindaG> 🙁
05:07:45 <Ryan (desk)> I see four spikes of what appear to be "false start" minors (for lack of a better term)
05:07:55 <Ryan (desk)> That is no bueno. :(
05:09:42 <LindaG> Would be a shame if it stopped
05:10:18 <Ryan (desk)> I think its already stopped.
05:10:55 <LindaG> When it came out of dormancy how often did it start erupting?
05:11:23 <LindaG> Did it do it o cema week right away?
05:11:34 <LindaG> *once
05:11:54 <Ryan (desk)> Yup
05:12:08 <Ryan (desk)> It did about a one month interval and then right into 6-8d
05:14:33 <LindaG> I guess if it can "turn on" that quickly it "turn off" just as quick
05:15:04 <Ryan (desk)> It usually doesnt
05:15:12 <Ryan (desk)> It seems to taper over months/years
05:15:12 <ynpvisitor84> it's not longer than the last interval yet
05:16:04 <Ryan (desk)> Doesn't have to be to indicate a slow down
05:17:18 <ynpvisitor84> 20 days and I will agree with you
05:17:50 <Ryan (desk)> Put it to you this way - we've *never* had a monthly eruption rate this low in the entire active phase outside of a disturbance.
05:20:14 <LindaG> Hi craig
05:21:23 <Ryan (desk)>
05:21:40 <CraigC> hey Linda and Ryan
05:21:51 <Ryan (desk)> I could be wrong. At this point in the 1960s the eruption rate plateaued and then spiked again for another year or so.
05:21:55 <ynpvisitor89> Hello everyone, Craig the cam is all yours
05:21:57 <Ryan (desk)> In the 1980s it crashed.
05:22:16 <CraigC> hey Joe, can you give me about 20 mins, I just got up
05:22:29 <ynpvisitor89> ok
05:22:55 <Ryan (desk)> Though, barring a sudden and consistent drop to 3-5d intervals I dont think we can "spike" any more in that chart
05:24:51 <Ryan (desk)> I have a very hard time arguing against what we know it can do. I guess based on the last active phases theres a 50/50 chance it doesnt just crash out.
05:25:24 <Ryan (desk)> But the logger data has me pretty concerned; it really looks an awful lot like what the end of the 1980s active phase looked like.
05:25:33 <ynpvisitor49> National Suicide Prevention Lifeline Call 1-800-273-8255
05:26:07 <Ryan (desk)> Is that a joke?
05:28:44 <Ryan (desk)> I think whoever 49 is should stop being a coward behind a number and tell us what the point of that was.
05:29:03 <Ryan (desk)> I can only interpret it as a cry for help, or a joke. And I dont klnow which bothers me more.
05:29:43 <CraigC> I highly doubt any malicious intent was intended, I'd let it be
05:30:21 <Ryan (desk)> Then what intent was there. I dont screw around with suicide.
05:30:25 <ynpvisitor84> :thumbsup:
05:31:38 <Ryan (desk)> After losing two friends to it and enarly losing myself to it four times I do take it personal.
05:32:29 <Ryan (desk)> I feel very sorry for whoever is behind that number.
05:38:27 <CraigC> ok, Joe, I can take the cam now
05:39:40 <ynpvisitor89> Good Craig
05:40:05 <CraigC> Joe, how ya been?
05:41:16 <ynpvisitor89> A little less than fair, but I'll get over it :)
05:42:17 <CraigC> I feel ya, my gf and I have been sick for a week, not awful, but not good
05:45:29 <ynpvisitor3> Aurum?
05:45:55 <CraigC> lot of steam, but I dont know
05:46:37 <CraigC> I'm not good at the really dark views
05:47:22 <GO BREAKFAST> Morning
05:47:24 <CraigC> hey Graham
05:48:18 <GO BREAKFAST> Thanks for the Grand time. I will go on geyser hill and see what Aurum is doing. Bee was a long interval
05:48:44 <ynpvisitor75> What just happened here was sad.
05:49:34 <CraigC> everyone perceives uniquely.... I have had some traumatic experiences, but I can still laugh at about anything
05:49:40 <GO BREAKFAST> What. Bee and ppssibly Aurum before sunup?
05:49:55 <GO BREAKFAST> Or did i miss something
05:50:59 <GO BREAKFAST> Will SB set a new non disturbance longest interval?
05:51:17 <CraigC> whjat is the record now?
05:51:44 <ynpvisitor75> He is lucky he is still alive.
05:52:05 <GO BREAKFAST> 13d22h
05:52:22 <ynpvisitor75> We should not minimize any responses to comments about suicide.
05:52:30 <CraigC> I have no guesses
05:52:38 <ynpvisitor75> I will just leave it at that.
05:53:39 <CraigC> my advice is to not expect everyone to be sensitive to every possible perception in a chat room where people dont know one another that well
05:54:13 <CraigC> gotta let a lot things just slide
05:54:29 <GO BREAKFAST> Oh, not good topic but i missed it earlier
05:58:13 <CraigC> GO BREAKFAST, where you going to be today?
05:59:24 <ynpvisitor75> I think everyone should be sensitive to suicide. You never know who may be struggling.
06:00:12 <GO BREAKFAST> Geyser hill then Grand. Maybe black sand and biscuit after
06:01:11 <CraigC> I'm not even jealous, I feel cold just thinking of that
06:01:16 <GO BREAKFAST> Then second Grand
06:01:35 <GO BREAKFAST> Warm yesterday but the wind was nasty
06:02:00 <CraigC> my gf was askin gbaout going up in April and I said no way, maybe middle of May at the earliest
06:02:34 <GO BREAKFAST> Well she has the bug too
06:02:44 <CraigC> she hasnt caught one yet
06:03:07 <CraigC> and she stayed all night with my twice last year
06:03:57 <GO BREAKFAST> There are other geysers too...
06:04:34 <CraigC> nto worth going into debt over, though.... I still havent paid down my VISA from last summer's stay
06:05:22 <ynpvisitor3> OF window
06:05:36 <CraigC> I'll never regret retiring young, but it is tight
06:06:21 <CraigC> ynpvisitor3, thanks, SB chat gets me distracted ;)
06:09:57 <CraigC> was that a short?
06:10:27 <CraigC> hmmmm, looked like it stopped
06:11:25 <ynpvisitor91> If SB is still active, I’ll bet CraigC is there before mid May!
06:11:43 <ynpvisitor3> It is long, the camera keeps pausing at the wrong times
06:11:46 <ynpvisitor91> You won’t be able to stop yourself
06:12:01 <CraigC> ynpvisitor91, ;)
06:13:12 <ynpvisitor91> What time does Snow Lodge open for breakfast?
06:13:34 <ynpvisitor14> here is a snippet of this mornings Bee :)
06:15:17 <CraigC> thanks, Joe
06:16:07 <Rice> How does Eric's new /getvideo command work? I tired it this morning, and got a video from yesterday.
06:17:49 <GO BREAKFAST> 0630 for breakfast
06:20:17 <ynpvisitor91> Are you waiting outside the door? Is anyone else up?
06:25:48 <GO BREAKFAST> Theres a long linr
06:26:20 <GO BREAKFAST> Early snowcoach crowd plus me
06:45:05 <GO BREAKFAST> Expect a Castle minor around 0800 based on recent pattern?
06:46:22 <GO BREAKFAST> Then major 4.5 to 6.5h later. But i now made it change :)
06:49:54 <GO BREAKFAST> Lion due, almost 10h...unless it snuck in earlier
07:06:51 <ynpvisitor14> Well, I can hear Willie Nelson singing..."On the road again" see you later :)
07:08:00 <CraigC> hey Kevin
07:09:17 <CraigC> hey Dave
07:09:52 <Dave from B™> Morning CraigC
07:09:56 <KevinS> Morning Craig
07:16:55 <Dave from B™> CraigC, it sounds as if you have been sice off and on since before the holidays. Do you need a fumigation at your house?:)
07:17:02 <Dave from B™> sick*
07:17:26 <CraigC> maybe so
07:17:50 <CraigC> I wonder if it is all the dog hair
07:18:31 <CraigC> I feel way better in the clean air of YNP
07:20:43 <Dave from B™> Dog hair is possible
07:21:07 <Dave from B™> It is hard to open windows or doors to freshen up the house in the winter, too
07:21:44 <CraigC> yep
07:22:06 <CraigC> did you see the photo of our new Silver Lab puppy?
07:22:55 <ynpvisitor66> Do you guys hunt? You know those dogs are bred to hunt, right?
07:23:26 <Dave from B™> I did. The head is so large it seems like it's on the wrong body:) That head probably weighs more than my smallest dog:)
07:23:52 <Cooper> 66, they do?!, I never knew that:)
07:24:22 <CraigC> never been a hunter, I have no need for dead animals
07:25:46 <Cooper> CraigC, hi
07:28:55 <CraigC> I thought "Cooper" would be a godo name for a dog, because of ALice Cooper.... but I wouldn't want it to remind me of teh Cooper here.... in retrospect, this dog is driving me crazy ;)
07:31:07 <Cooper> I can not tell if that is sarcasm, or not?
07:32:24 <CraigC> it is meant as straight humor, making light of how I have found you to be annoying
07:33:24 <Cooper> haha, most people have at some point:p
07:35:06 <Cooper> Well, bbl. Bye Craig, and others.
07:35:09 <Cooper> GO SB
07:38:08 <Dave from B™> CraigC, do you have any non YNP trips planned this year?
07:41:38 <ynpvisitor65> are we in OF window?
07:41:59 <CraigC> thanks
07:42:02 <CraigC> not yet Dave
07:47:26 <CraigC> of
07:47:35 <CraigC> did anyone see the start time
07:48:03 <CraigC> maybe Graham will enter it
07:56:17 <CraigC> lion
07:58:43 <Dave from B™> Nice start to the day for Graham...a lion ini
07:59:10 <CraigC> and MOuth!!!
08:00:58 <CraigC> Dave from B™, back to vacations, we might go to Moab over Geralynn's spring break sometime around April
08:01:18 <CraigC> I'm weighing out selling some stocks to buy a truck
08:01:58 <Dave from B™> To replace your jeep?
08:02:08 <CraigC> I don't think my Grand Cherokee can get my trailer over Soldier Summit
08:02:27 <CraigC> I'd keep my Jeep, it is too nice for what I would get for it
08:03:26 <CraigC> it hauls my little boat perfectly
08:03:58 <CraigC> daisy ie
08:11:53 <CraigC> riverside
08:12:22 <CraigC> lucky timing on that wide pan out
08:19:30 <Dave from B™> Used or new truck?
08:19:57 <CraigC> very low miles used
08:20:17 <CraigC> unless dealers have some great last year deals
08:20:35 <CraigC> I'm looking at 2019 Rams
08:20:58 <CraigC> great reviews for towing capacity for the bucks
08:24:31 <Dave from B™> Our Travato has a Dodge Ram
08:24:34 <ynpvisitor1021> Can you figure out rift steam now
08:24:59 <ynpvisitor1021> Probably blends in with grand
08:26:21 <CraigC> ynpvisitor1021, Graham is there in basin
08:29:12 <CraigC> hey Katie
08:29:19 <Katie> Hi Craig
08:30:35 <CraigC> Katie, Grand is up on deck, maybe 838
08:30:58 <CraigC> then Lion
08:31:21 <Katie> Cool. Thanks. I just looked over the last eruptions. Would be nice if Lion 2nd went between Grand and OF. :)
08:31:36 <CraigC> hopefully
08:31:48 <CraigC> I just signed out, all yorus
08:31:52 <CraigC> yours
08:32:24 <CraigC> I now have puppy babysitting duties ;)
08:33:23 <Dave from B™> Have a great day, CraigC
08:33:30 <Dave from B™> Hopefully, SB erupts today
08:33:59 <CraigC> thanks, I'll be lurking
08:40:05 <ynpvisitor59> no 2nd lion?
08:40:28 <Katie> Not time, yet.
08:41:27 <ynpvisitor59> ah, sorry, still waking up
08:42:06 <Katie> I'm still waking up, too, so I don't mind being poked if I'm overlooking something. :)
08:42:28 <ynpvisitor59> bulger
08:54:09 <Micah-dorm> Aaaaaand Graham just got Bulger's Hole. Gaaaaaarrrgh
08:55:21 <Dave from B™> Sorry, Micah
08:55:27 <Micah-dorm> I've spent 3 weeks spending over 48 hours in that group....
08:55:38 <Micah-dorm> And that stupid sput keeps on taunting me.
08:55:51 <Micah-dorm> "Oh you're getting ready for work? I'll just erupt for Graham then"
08:55:57 <Micah-dorm> grrrr.
08:57:28 <ynpvisitor1021> It likes me
08:57:43 <ynpvisitor102> It liked me too
08:58:16 <Micah-dorm> Anemone must have paid it off.
08:58:40 <Micah-dorm> Also you two. Message me if you're interested in helping me this summer study the group. I could use more eyes. I've already recruited Craig M.
09:00:40 <Dave from B™> Do you know if Luke is returning this year?
09:02:32 <Micah-dorm> Unsure.
09:02:58 <Micah-dorm> Could be a quiet summer if Steamboat is slowing down and every other titan remains dormant.
09:04:16 <Dave from B™> Something will wake up this year. My bet is F&M.
09:04:26 <Micah-dorm> I sure hope so.
09:04:35 <Micah-dorm> That drift between East and Main is huge.
09:06:41 <ynpvisitor93> Why aren’t you out watching Bulger’s Hole Micah?
09:07:17 <Micah-dorm> Because I have a tour at 11:30 and Needed coffee and to try to finish up my draft of my Sput Article to send it off to my peer review.
09:07:30 <Micah-dorm> And usually I prefer 6-8 hours of continuous observation of the group
09:07:37 <Micah-dorm> Allows for at least one full cycle of Spasmodic.
09:07:49 <ynpvisitor93> I hope you get to see one soon
09:12:03 <Katie> Lion was just starting as I moved cam
09:29:27 <KevinS> Steamboat window opens in 30 minutes.
09:29:59 <Katie> :)
09:30:47 <Lori S 🤪> No, it opened at 0900. :)
09:31:36 <Lori S 🤪> My current window is open for 12 hours. How about yours KevinS?
09:32:18 <Dave from B™> It BETTER go today
09:32:39 <Dave from B™> haha
09:32:43 <KevinS> Who knows. I just gave 10:17 as my prediction to LindaP. So I am trying to will the beast to activity!
09:32:54 <Micah-dorm> Anytime between now and the next 50 years.
09:32:59 <Micah-dorm> or never again.
09:33:05 <Dave from B™> My prediction is past. That always helps things erupt
09:33:28 <Lori S 🤪> Dave from B™, thanks for that
09:33:44 <KevinS> Lori S 🤪, Actually I do have a window in mind, but after yesterday I would not post that in the open forum.
09:34:24 <Lori S 🤪> With SB, it's not so much a prediction but a wild guess these days
09:35:08 <Lori S 🤪> KevinS, howz come? I am wrong 100% of the time but I still guess
09:36:05 <KevinS> Is Mary Greely on? She was yesterday and took comments out text for her youtube channel.
09:36:19 <Katie> From here?!
09:36:30 <Lori S 🤪> WHAT?!!!!!!
09:36:30 <KevinS> Had to be
09:37:04 <Micah-dorm> Oh gawd.
09:37:10 <Lori S 🤪> Because?
09:37:14 <Micah-dorm> Of course she found us.
09:37:23 <Micah-dorm> She thinks I'm in league with the government.
09:37:38 <KevinS> I challenged Ryan about by using a ridiculous eathquake comparison.
09:37:49 <Lori S 🤪> Eric, I think some ip tracking is in order...
09:38:10 <Micah-dorm> I'm like, Lady, I am a broke AF tour guide that enjoys studying geology. If I was in league with the government I'd have a big Log Cabin up in the gallatins right now drinking scotch and having a cigar.
09:38:19 <Micah-dorm> Good grief.
09:38:24 <Lori S 🤪> Micah-dorm, Oh, you aren't? ;)
09:38:27 <Micah-dorm> Love ya Mary :heart:
09:38:32 <KevinS> as a caution of using historical data event without known cause to make a conclusion
09:39:08 <Micah-dorm> To be fair he's doing more statistcal analysis on Steamboat than basically anybody else.
09:39:37 <Lori S 🤪> Micah-dorm, who is? Ryan?
09:39:47 <Micah-dorm> Yes.
09:39:50 <KevinS> Video by Greely: Large 7.0 qauakes preceeded by steambout large minors without a major according to historical data.
09:40:26 <Lori S 🤪> Micah-dorm, Well, known statistical analysis, anyway.
09:40:26 <Micah-dorm> Awesome.
09:40:49 <Micah-dorm> Well it's more than anyone else is doing. And so far there are some interesting numbers and trends coming out of it.
09:41:10 <Lori S 🤪> Micah-dorm, Oh, I completely agree he is doing some great work there.
09:41:40 <KevinS> I agree he is too.
09:41:46 <Lori S 🤪> KevinS, She really used that? OMG
09:41:55 <Micah-dorm> She uses anything that fits her narrative.
09:42:17 <Micah-dorm> What my dream is, is that Yellowstone erupts, but only a rhyolite lava flow.
09:42:26 <Micah-dorm> No caldera forming eruption. No big boom. A new Lava flow.
09:42:39 <KevinS> She had too. Look it up on youtube. Posted right after we had that conversation yesterday.
09:42:54 <Micah-dorm> I haven't seen a single conspiracy theorist talking about that. It would make them have an existential crisis when it happened and then didn't result in the world ending.
09:43:07 <Lori S 🤪> KevinS, I avoid going to any of her stuff online as it gives her page hits.
09:43:13 <Micah-dorm> ^^
09:43:23 <Micah-dorm> Lori S agreed.
09:43:32 <Micah-dorm> I used to and then I realized it was just making me upset and not worth my time.
09:43:36 <Katie> Same. I give her no attention whatsoever.
09:43:43 <Lori S 🤪> Micah-dorm, you agree with me on something? :)
09:43:45 <KevinS> She did reference "chatters" but made it sounds like scientists.
09:44:19 <Dave from B™> What an idiot
09:45:13 <KevinS> We can flag it... That does not help her.
09:45:14 <Lori S 🤪> Let's see, what can we make up today...
09:46:32 <Lori S 🤪> thinking
09:47:07 <Micah-dorm> Yeah. I wouldn't bother.
09:47:19 <Micah-dorm> lol!
09:47:40 <Katie> There is increased energy in the caldera. Steamboat has been releasing it with its active phase, but it's plugged, now. Without that release of energy, kaboom!
09:48:06 <Micah-dorm> Guys, actually can we not?
09:48:15 <Micah-dorm> I enjoy poking fun at her as much as anyone.
09:48:20 <Katie> ^^making up fantasies based on no data or science whatsoever
09:48:25 <Micah-dorm> But propogating fear mongering and misinformation should not be encouraged.
09:48:30 <Micah-dorm> Yeah but she'll run with it.
09:48:33 <LindaG> Katie, my husband just said that
09:48:34 <Micah-dorm> She's dangerous.
09:49:29 <Lori S 🤪> Micah-dorm, Yeah, I wasn't really gonna come up with anything. I was kidding.
09:49:50 <Katie> I agree, Micah. And maybe it shouldn't be joke fodder because she can't tell the difference.
09:49:51 <Lori S 🤪> Micah-dorm, And I agree on the dnager part
09:49:54 <Dave from B™> It should be illegal spreading garbage like she does
09:50:01 <Micah-dorm> ^^^
09:50:04 <Micah-dorm> Dave I agree.
09:50:28 <Lori S 🤪> Dave from B™, She learned it from the POTUS
09:50:30 <Micah-dorm> We live in a world where people like her are allowed to spread misinformation and lies, while actual scientists get jailed for not predicting earthquakes. Sad.
09:50:40 <Katie> It could potentially fall under inciting panic, like yelling fire in a crowded theater.
09:51:40 <Dave from B™> Lori S, she has been around a lot longer than POTUS.
09:51:48 <Micah-dorm> Anyways, back to working on my bibliography for my Sput Article. I'll be lurking until 11 ish.
09:52:11 <Lori S 🤪> Dave from B™, Oh, so he learned it from her.
09:52:38 <Lori S 🤪> (joke)
09:55:00 <Dave from B™> There will come a point that anything published will actually have to have sources listed
09:56:01 <ynpvisitor73> If it has typos we will know it came from Dave.
09:56:15 <Lori S 🤪> ynpvisitor73, or Linda
09:56:24 <LindaG> Hey hey
09:56:33 <Katie> ha ha
09:57:07 <Lori S 🤪> That would have been funny if I had typed "or L da"
09:57:17 <Dave from B™> I knew that was you, Kevin!
09:57:23 <LindaG> 😋
09:58:07 <Dave from B™> It wouldn't be a normal day if Kevin and I weren't trading friendly barbs
09:58:38 <LindaG> Lori S 🤪, hehe every time cooper makes fun of my typos he has to correct his own
09:58:40 <Lori S 🤪> Hello LindaG Hello. When did you sneak in? :)
09:59:08 <Kevin L™🌵> Speaking of puppies Craig I am headed to Rainbow tomorrow with 2 German Shorthair pups. Those things are always wound up real tight but get them out in the boondock they go nutts.
09:59:10 <LindaG> Lori S 🤪, hi, I came in in the middle of the Mary discussion
09:59:34 <Lori S 🤪> LindaG, ah. And wisely stayed out of it. :)
09:59:47 <LindaG> 😀
10:00:40 <Kevin L™🌵> Wow. Perry Mason music already? I guess i better take the wheel.
10:00:58 <Katie> Happy driving
10:01:12 <LindaG> Lori S 🤪, Actually my husband just asked me, if it doesnt release its energy what will happen, like a minute before I came on
10:01:53 <Kevin L™🌵> At least we have doggies.
10:02:51 <Lori S 🤪> Bob will be very happy once it returns to dormancy, actually.
10:03:46 <Lori S 🤪> His toklernace for my SB addiction is wearing thin. :)
10:03:58 <LindaG> Lori S 🤪, 🙁
10:03:59 <Lori S 🤪> *tolerance
10:04:08 <Kevin L™🌵> :) If he saw it he would join you.
10:04:22 <Dave from B™> LoriS, what will you do when SB finally sleeps again?
10:04:44 <Lori S 🤪> Kevin L™🌵, I've tried to tell him that. But he did actually see it ns from the road once and drove on by. :(
10:04:49 <LindaG> 30 yrs is a long time to stare at seismos
10:05:08 <Kevin L™🌵> That is horrible Lori.
10:05:36 <ynpvisitor93> I've heard that Whirligig is a nice geyser to watch.
10:05:39 <Lori S 🤪> Dave from B™, return to visiting Norris in peace. :)
10:06:19 <Lori S 🤪> Kevin L™🌵, Yup.
10:06:25 <LindaG> Who were the first people to see it when it returned?
10:06:45 <LindaG> How did they know?
10:07:13 <Lori S 🤪> LindaG, you mean this series?
10:07:33 <LindaG> When it started back up in 2018
10:07:52 <ynpvisitor101> Rocco was the first one to see a short interval
10:08:34 <LindaG> I remember when it happened, just wondering demi g if they saw it by chance or someone noticed seismo
10:08:35 <Ben VL> But he may not have seen water phase
10:09:13 <Ben VL> May 27 was the first one seen from start as far as we know
10:09:19 <ynpvisitor12> Rocco saw a later water phase
10:09:36 <Eric> Seismo was the initial indicator I believe...the rocco got a "glimpse" from the road when the basin was closed, then I large group of us saw it on 5/27 for the first time!
10:09:40 <ynpvisitor12> Everyone was confused
10:10:11 <Katie> I was there for the 5/27. :)
10:10:12 <Micah-dorm> The beginning stages of this active phase were nothing short of chaos.
10:10:17 <Eric> Yep....I got my one and only SB on 5/27/2018 :-D
10:10:20 <Micah-dorm> Nobody had any ideas what was going on.
10:10:28 <Lori S 🤪> I recall an NPS employee reporting seeing water at some point. But maybe not the very forst.
10:10:28 <LindaG> Grand
10:10:36 <Eric> haha...YVO were calling them minors!
10:10:40 <LindaG> .
10:10:41 <LindaG> .
10:10:46 <Dave from B™> And, NPS thought SB was having minors only
10:10:46 <Ben VL> I was stuck at home that day without a reliable car yet
10:11:02 <Micah-dorm> Let's not bash the NPS too har.
10:11:06 <Micah-dorm> please.
10:11:14 <Ben VL> I knew it was going to go that day and there was nothing I could do about it
10:11:14 <Micah-dorm> They were learning just the same as us.
10:11:18 <Eric> It's not bashing, it was a fact.
10:11:37 <Eric> Like you said, people didn't really know.
10:11:43 <Micah-dorm> That they were calling them minors yes, but they corrected themselves eventually.
10:12:04 <Ben VL> While we're waiting for the next one, I have some good news...
10:12:07 <ynpvisitor93> Laughing at them sre looks like bashing.
10:12:18 <Ben VL> I found the Norris temperature archive
10:12:23 <Eric> not until after 5/27 when gazers had to force them Micah!
10:12:27 <LindaG> Graham is at grand
10:12:37 <Kevin L™🌵> I remember when NPS used to tell people to ignore us. Now they call us "volunteers".
10:12:38 <Micah-dorm> Yeah, and what did that do to our relationship Eric?
10:12:38 <Eric> It was poor science IMHO!
10:12:43 <Micah-dorm> It certainly didn't help things.
10:12:50 <Ben VL>
10:12:54 <Micah-dorm> Because we jumped down their throats and ridiculed them.
10:12:59 <Micah-dorm> And guess who got the brunt of it?
10:13:38 <ynpvisitor12> No one ridiculed them, come on...
10:13:46 <ynpvisitor93> I don't think many people here spend a lot of time in the basin and interacting with the park service.
10:14:01 <Kevin L™🌵> It seems funny to look at Grand and thing 7h is a long interval.
10:14:03 <Micah-dorm> I can pull up the logs and comments if you want 12
10:14:16 <ynpvisitor93> Comments and behaviors on this page can and do affect the relationship between the NPS and the geyser gazers.
10:14:19 <Eric> I agree with 12, they weren't being ridiculed...they were be called flat out wrong, which they were.
10:14:20 <ynpvisitor12> Who got the brunt of it Micah?
10:14:47 <Micah-dorm> I'll let you figure it out. Have a good day everyone. Signing off to do some things.
10:15:02 <Lori S 🤪> Micah-dorm, Have a good one.
10:15:11 <Ben VL> Cya Micah
10:15:29 <ynpvisitor12> Really is he saying he got the brunt of it?
10:15:30 <Lori S 🤪> Eric, Did you read the comments above about MG?
10:15:34 <ynpvisitor93> Hard for younger people to do anything worthwhile.
10:15:39 <ynpvisitor12> Please....
10:15:44 <ynpvisitor93> You guys really like to pile on to people, don't you?
10:16:22 <Eric> MG?
10:16:23 <ynpvisitor93> This page is as bad as the Facebook group for public relations.
10:16:58 <Ben VL> The relationship between us and the NPS has been pretty trnse for a while
10:17:24 <Lori S 🤪> Eric, pm's you
10:17:31 <Lori S 🤪> pm'd
10:17:38 <ynpvisitor93> It has gotten worse in the last few years with the rise of social media.
10:18:20 <LindaG> Social media isnt always a good thing
10:18:20 <ynpvisitor93> The combination of the NPS seeing this and the Facebook page has not helped anything.
10:18:38 <ynpvisitor93> And Micah directly interacts with the NPS on a daily basis - frequently in official capacities.
10:18:40 <ynpvisitor12> Was Micah even in the park in May 2018?
10:18:48 <Eric> Hey, I love the NPS & YVO, they get praise and razing where appropriate.
10:19:09 <ynpvisitor93> 12, he has been in the park for the majority of a season since 2013. With one exception for feildwork.
10:19:11 <Eric> I don't believe so 12
10:19:15 <Ben VL> And certain things that happen in basin
10:19:35 <ynpvisitor12> He maybe came late in the season
10:19:42 <ynpvisitor93> He arrived there in mid summer. And stayed until October.
10:19:47 <ynpvisitor93> "Maybe" haha thats funny
10:20:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Frankly I think the relationship with the NPS is pretty good. We share information and assist each other.
10:20:25 <ynpvisitor93> He has interacted with the park service in official capacities every season since 2013.
10:20:35 <ynpvisitor12> I agree Kevin
10:20:52 <ynpvisitor12> Just stop 93
10:20:58 <ynpvisitor93> If you don't think that is enough interaction to recieve a lot of blow back then you can't be helped.
10:21:24 <Eric> Sure, we are not professionals and dealing with citizen enthusiasts can be difficult...not sure that will ever change.
10:21:37 <ynpvisitor93> I have seen this page target two newer people who are trying to do something today.
10:21:43 <Kevin L™🌵> In the last 2 cases of cone walkers the Park Service was alerted by people on this page.
10:22:01 <ynpvisitor93> And it is a trend.
10:22:21 <ynpvisitor12> 93, no one is making you be here
10:22:28 <ynpvisitor93> I won't stop just because you were wrong, 12.
10:23:03 <Ben VL> Not saying it's all bad, but when I talk to the people who live there, there is isually something
10:23:18 <Ben VL> *usually
10:23:22 <ynpvisitor12> Some people put themselves in places of importance that don’t really exist.
10:23:38 <Eric> Lion
10:23:56 <Katie> Oh, look! A geyser! And bison crossing the basin.
10:24:00 <ynpvisitor12> I think the idea is to share information and for everyone to get along
10:24:12 <Katie> Er, crossing the hill...
10:24:20 <LindaG> Oh i thought im was delayed big time
10:24:28 <ynpvisitor93> Then maybe give someone some credit if they feel like they are taking a hit from NPS relations.
10:24:59 <ynpvisitor93> I don't see much of an environment here for sharing information beyond basic eruption times.
10:25:13 <Ben VL> Keep in mind, sometimes it isn't our fault. Someone will complain that we didn't want to answer questions during an eruption of something
10:25:16 <ynpvisitor93> The GOSA Board doesn't exist?
10:25:31 <ynpvisitor93> Haha, that is funny.
10:25:44 <Lori S 🤪> May have a chance here to try out that new ignore thingy
10:25:47 <ynpvisitor93> Ben VL, I am speaking more of inter-gazer relations.
10:26:34 <ynpvisitor58> Thanks for the cocoa, LoriS. Maybe some cookies and a nap are in order?
10:26:50 <Lori S 🤪> ynpvisitor58, haha, I do believe so.
10:26:52 <LindaG> Daisy
10:26:54 <Eric> caffeine!
10:27:18 <ynpvisitor93> If you don't think that having Bill be on here and see some of the inter-gazer relations is detrimental then I am not sure there's much that can help our group.
10:27:45 <Eric> Bill is a great guy...never have knocked him, ever!
10:28:21 <ynpvisitor93> I did not say you did.
10:28:25 <Eric> when you have large volunteer/diverse groups, you will have conflicts. It's the fact of large diverse groups.
10:28:26 <Lori S 🤪> Sometimes teh only winning move is not to play. Wargames
10:28:39 <Eric> haha...nice quote Lori :-P
10:28:43 <Dave from B™> 93, all groups are like this in today's society. I don't think Bill cares what gazers are fighting at a given time. He has a job to least for another 6 weeks.
10:28:56 <ynpvisitor93> I have had these conversations with may of you in the basin and in person.
10:29:00 <Eric> Is bill moving on??????
10:29:05 <ynpvisitor93> None of you have ever treated anyone like that in person.
10:29:05 <Kevin L™🌵> You have conflicts in small families but that doesn't mean they don't like each other.
10:29:15 <Dave from B™> leaving at the end of Mar
10:29:21 <Eric> Nooooooooooooooooooo
10:29:24 <Eric> CAstle
10:29:27 <Eric> I think
10:29:37 <Eric> That makes me sad
10:29:52 <Kevin L™🌵> It does all of us Eric.
10:29:56 <Eric> Guess not...just extra steam
10:30:13 <Eric> I agree with you Dave
10:30:33 <Eric> Just got caught up in Bill we know where he is headed?
10:30:41 <Eric> maybe CVO?
10:31:03 <Ben VL> I thought Bill was pretty nice
10:31:17 <ynpvisitor93> Bill is a great guy.
10:31:34 <Dave from B™> Bill isn't sure yet but he wants a career that he can advance in and NPS isn't it.
10:31:55 <Eric> ahhh bummer...that is tough for a geologist
10:32:26 <Eric> I guess he needs a Phd to advance?
10:32:53 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, was that daisy before, it thought so
10:33:07 <LindaG> *i
10:35:00 <Kevin L™🌵> It looked like it. I was hoping Graham noticed it. I just texted him.
10:35:23 <LindaG> Looked like maybe the end
10:35:35 <Kevin L™🌵> It was very steamy like the end.
10:36:51 <Eric> Woops...graham entered an Aurum where I think he meant a note.
10:37:26 <Lori S 🤪> Eric, Well, we better flag him! :)
10:37:33 <Eric> I did
10:37:33 <Katie> Looks like. I'm sure he'll correct it.
10:37:37 <Eric> So he notices
10:38:11 <Kevin L™🌵> Oh that looks sooooo cold.
10:38:12 <Eric> cool
10:38:21 <Eric> Swimming Bison are pretty sweet
10:38:25 <Lori S 🤪> Eric, friendly flags are welcome, right? I appreciated one I got cuz I made an hon et mistake.
10:38:39 <Eric> ok...well not swimming :-P
10:38:50 <Eric> Yep, I appreciate a friendly flag when I make a mistake
10:39:12 <Katie> I know I appreciate the opportunity to correct an error.
10:39:18 <Eric> He already fixed it...I am amazed he enters anything out there :-P
10:39:29 <Eric> My hands would be frozen :-P
10:39:31 <Kevin L™🌵> Mine shows a note.
10:39:38 <Eric> He fixed it Kevin
10:40:21 <LindaG> Nice
10:40:33 <Eric> KevinS, do you have the link to Mary G's video with the chat in it? I would like the link via PM please.
10:41:31 <Lori S ☔️> It is currently RAINING in West
10:41:53 <Eric> Yuck
10:42:00 <Katie> Yuck. That is going to be a mess!
10:42:22 <LindaG> Rain in january?🙁
10:42:36 <Kevin L™🌵> Freezing rain is HORRIBLE.
10:44:32 <LindaG> January? Comes a big boy
10:44:52 <LindaG> *here comes a big boy
10:52:03 <fishynp> Kevin L™🌵, I saw that you had a question about seismic station YFT yesterday. That station is currently not operating correctly. We need to make a site visit.
10:53:25 <Kevin L™🌵> Thanks. It looked like it had issues. Thanks for checking.
10:54:33 <fishynp> It will most likely not be fixed until the spring.
10:55:19 <Kevin L™🌵> I bet it is tough getting anything done up there off season.
10:55:50 <fishynp> It can be done but only on rare occasions. Depends on how much I want to ski/snowshoe.
10:57:22 <Kevin L™🌵> You KNOW what I think of snow. I would wait.
11:12:11 <Eric> Thanks Fish!
11:27:40 <CraigC> AL
11:34:26 <Eric> Dead cam :-(
11:35:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Matches the operator.
11:35:12 <CraigC> hey Eric, how's it going
11:35:20 <CraigC> hey Kevin
11:35:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi Craig. Dog keeping you busy?
11:35:58 <CraigC> Kevin L™🌵, yeah, I got a little break
11:36:23 <CraigC> I need some mecuricom for my slashed up hands, though
11:37:56 <Kevin L™🌵> I can relate. Going to Rainbow with 2 German shorthair pups. Total balls of energy.
11:38:21 <CraigC> how old are they?
11:39:22 <Kevin L™🌵> About 9 months old. That breed is always high strung. There is also an 8 year old and she gets wild with the pups.
11:40:20 <CraigC> I've never had a labrador that bites this hard... I have literal slashes on both hands
11:41:17 <Dave from B™> CraigC, you either need gloves or you might want to keep your hand out of its mouth:)
11:41:31 <CraigC> I tried gloves, and he locked on even harder
11:41:50 <Kevin L™🌵> Get a large rawhide bone. They love to chew on those.
11:42:02 <CraigC> so I am going with your plan b, and trying my best to keep my hands out ofhis reach
11:42:08 <Dave from B™> I'll stick to puny dogs
11:46:48 <ynpvisitor18> Just grab hold of his tongue and say NO! Don't do anything that could be misunderstood as prase for biting. Be consistent, either say no, or drop it. If you let him play bite learn to live with a dog that bites.
11:49:40 <CraigC> ynpvisitor18, I'll try that, thanks
11:53:20 <ynpvisitor18> Kevin, shorthairs are no good for cats. What you need is a Rhodesian Ridgeback. Cute little dogs
11:55:25 <Kevin L™🌵> These are my Uncle's dogs. I am more a chicken man now but having a dog to chase bobcats does sound good.
11:56:48 <Ben VL> I usually just held my fingers against the roof of my dog's mouth.
11:57:07 <Ben VL> It felt really weird and they didn't know what do to
11:57:55 <ynpvisitor18> that works
11:58:09 <Ben VL> Or pull their cheeks into their mouth so they end up biting themselves, they would stop pretty quickly with that too
11:58:12 <Kevin L™🌵> I had a really tiny terrier for 17 years. Had to take it to the vet for that last visit. Never did get over that and still don't want to do that again.
11:58:26 <ynpvisitor18> spiky puppy teeth make it hard.
11:58:42 <Dave from B™> Yeah, Kevin. I'm dreading that when the time comes
11:58:43 <Ben VL> Puppy teeth hurt a lot
11:59:23 <ynpvisitor18> Dave, I am sure your kids will treat you well.
11:59:36 <ynpvisitor18> Wait, you were talking about the rats?
12:00:33 <Kevin L™🌵> She was in the house during the Pepcon explosion. You could tell where she was and where she went when a got home. I line of poo from the living room to the bedroom.
12:00:35 <ynpvisitor18> Ryan's snakes will take care of them. It is Ryan that wants the snakes right?
12:02:15 <ynpvisitor64> Thanks for the temp link, Ben. Nice find.
12:02:43 <Dave from B™> Ryan has 1 snake and yes, I was tlaking about the rats
12:04:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Ironically the dog I had could curl up in your hand when she was a pup. I would carry her in my coat pocket. I don't know what I named her but it never stuck. Everyone called her Mouse. That name stuck.
12:05:39 <LindaG> Pets beco e family
12:05:49 <LindaG> *become
12:06:10 <LindaG> Had a cockatiel for 13 yrs, sad when she died
12:06:25 <Ben VL> NP, 64
12:06:35 <Kevin L™🌵> Those are fun birds.
12:06:39 <Ben VL> I've been looking for that for a LONG time
12:06:49 <Ben VL> Glad I finally found it
12:06:50 <ynpvisitor18> Our local vets have all gone nuts. Last 2 dogs have been taken care of by the animal shelter. They have a nice room with a back entrance. Cost is reasonable, and you do not have to pay a exam fee for a old sick dog they know they can not make better.
12:07:32 <Ben VL> Im case anyone missed it, here's the link again:
12:07:33 <ynpvisitor18> SOmeone groke the X
12:07:35 <Ben VL>
12:07:37 <ynpvisitor84> Ben VL what? I missed that
12:07:38 <ynpvisitor18> broke
12:07:41 <Kevin L™🌵> My Aunt had a lot of Banty chickens (over 100) and each one had a name. She would also feed hummingbirds. There were thousands there.
12:07:59 <Ben VL> It's the Norris temperature logger archive
12:08:51 <ynpvisitor18> We have the wrong bumble birds. They guard the feeder so you only end up with a pair and lots of dog fights.
12:08:59 <LindaG> My bird was always to the vet. Had problems. One night the vet called and said he was checking on Sassy Gangi, my husband couldnt believe it. Human doctors dont call.
12:10:44 <ynpvisitor18> Can not even have 2 feeders in different places.
12:10:52 <Dave from B™> Actually, I have had human and pet doctors call us in the past couple of years. And, I've been pleasantly surprised when it happens.
12:11:58 <ynpvisitor18> Eye surgeon doing a followup. Other then that, only had staff at a dentist call.
12:13:57 <ynpvisitor18> Insurance and lawyers have made it hard to be a doctor.
12:14:16 <Kevin L™🌵> Usually if a doctor calls it isn't good news.
12:18:07 <ynpvisitor18> Time for other things. Don't let the dog bite.
12:24:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Ugh. There were some corn nuts on the table. I grabbed a bunch. Didn't realize they were tabasco until I ate a few.
12:24:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Short?
12:25:03 <JarnoO> afternoon all
12:25:55 <Eric> Don't eat food you don't know where it came from Kevin! :-P
12:25:58 <Kevin L™🌵> Hi
12:26:02 <Eric> Hi Craig & Jarno
12:26:21 <Kevin L™🌵> I knew where it came from, just not what it was.
12:26:49 <Eric> :-D
12:30:43 <Eric> Bison camping on that pathway
12:44:18 <LindaG> The vet also called to give me his condolences when the bird died. Very sweet.
12:46:12 <Katie> About 20 years ago, on my way home from "momercize" (water aerobics for pregnant women), I came upon a man on the sidewalk cradling a bloody dog. He had been walking his dog when dog was hit by car.
12:46:43 <Katie> He was new to town, hadn't established a vet yet. I drove him and his dog to my vet's office, which was closed, but I knocked on back door and my vet answered the door.
12:47:27 <Katie> I didn't want to leave them there without transportation, so I waited around. After a while, vet came into waiting room and said she would drive the guy home.
12:48:22 <Katie> I never told her my name. But hours later, I got a call at home from her. she was sorry to report that she did everything she could but internal injuries were too severe. I thanked her for the call, and asked how she found my number.
12:48:46 <Katie> she said "I'm not always good with human names, but I did know your face belong to the owner of Cooper and Brutus, so I looked them up."
12:49:32 <Kevin L™🌵> Interesting story katie.
12:49:38 <Katie> At that point, we had only been clients for maybe 2 visits. She does know my name now - and remembers the past pets she has cared for and assisted to the bridge.
12:51:15 <Kevin L™🌵> Who was it looking at Grand Canyon? This looks fun:
13:00:07 <KevinS> Is SB waking?? See some blimps.
13:00:41 <JarnoO> doubtful
13:00:51 <Dave from B™> Bob probably hit a signpost:)
13:01:29 <Katie Holmium> It's a good year for blimps.
13:01:35 <ynpvisitor84> blimp in the parking lot?
13:01:40 <Dave from B™> hahaha
13:01:55 <Dave from B™> It can't be a HOT air blimp
13:02:29 <JarnoO> I think Kevin would like a hydrogen blimp :)
13:02:54 <JarnoO> might get him off of his tannerite addiction :D
13:03:00 <Kevin L™🌵> I had the Goodyear Blimp on my virtual radar during CES. Flew over my house when it left.
13:03:43 <Kevin L™🌵> Hydrogen is good but too unstable. Tannerite is pretty safe.
13:09:25 <ynpvisitor17> those look like people about blips. The ones last night at 1850 are curious though.
13:10:06 <ynpvisitor84> grooming parking lot last night ?
13:10:08 <Kevin L™🌵> I predict a 2.6 eq because of it.
13:10:31 <ynpvisitor17> is that a rain cloud Lori?
13:10:42 <Dave from B™> hahaha Kevin
13:11:18 <ynpvisitor17> Graham must be en route to Biscuit Basin
13:11:58 <Lori S 🌧> ynpvisitor17, yes
13:12:13 <ynpvisitor17> are you just down today?
13:12:31 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, I was asking about Grand Canyon, thanks for train link. They have a train that runs betwwwn William's and south rim currently, but this looks Interesting.
13:12:33 <Lori S 🌧> ynpvisitor17, No, it's raining out here
13:12:48 <ynpvisitor17> really?
13:13:07 <Lori S 🌧> Yes, spritzy wey stuff that is trying to melt our snow.
13:13:14 <Lori S 🌧> *wet
13:13:17 <ynpvisitor17> doesn't look like rain in the basin
13:13:49 <Lori S 🌧> Doesn't look like rain here either but I just got misted on my way back from lunch.
13:14:08 <ynpvisitor17> ick, rain in winter is not good
13:14:09 <Lori S 🌧> Oh, wait, I think the rain is turning white.
13:14:24 <Kevin L™🌵> I think the normal train is a whole lot cheaper Linda. I got a chaance to ride one of these deluxe trains once. It was awesome.
13:14:35 <ynpvisitor17> West Gate certainly looks gray
13:15:30 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, I'm sure it is. 😊
13:18:23 <Kevin L™🌵> They ran the car I rode in behind the UP Big Boy from LA to Barstow. Tickets for it were $15,000!
13:20:06 <JarnoO> that's stupidly expensive if you'd ask me
13:20:09 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, 😳
13:20:35 <LindaG> All you need is one taker 😉
13:21:26 <Kevin L™🌵> It was full. I rode it for free. There were 10 of us and we had a waiter and cook for the trip with great food.
13:21:50 <Kevin L™🌵> It was pulled by a steam engine for me too.
13:22:41 <LindaG> 🚂🚂🚂😊
13:24:39 <Kevin L™🌵> Here is a video of the train I rode going through the Williams Loop. I am the guy on the left at 2:18.
13:28:18 <LindaG> Nice, but wow the pollution
13:29:24 <Kevin L™🌵> That is mostly steam. It was on a grade so it was blowing out some particulate.
13:30:02 <LindaG> Oh ok
13:30:42 <LindaG> BA
13:30:57 <Lori S 🌧> On my quest to find lower calorie substitutes, I've just opened a bottle of Brew Dr watermelon hibiscus green tea.
13:31:21 <LindaG> How is it?
13:31:29 <Kevin L™🌵> The steam exhausts through the smoke box to increase draft. When you accelerate it will take out loose stuff.
13:31:39 <Lori S 🌧> This one will lose me lots of calories because I'm not drinking it. Blech.
13:31:56 <LindaG> Lori S 🌧, lol
13:32:18 <Lori S 🌧> Think fizzy watermelon rind
13:32:46 <Lori S 🌧> No, fizzy watermelon seeds
13:32:48 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, I was wondering I didnt think other trains you have shown us had black steam like that
13:32:52 <Kevin L™🌵> Usually the better it tastes the more calories it has.
13:33:34 <Lori S 🌧> Kevin L™🌵, plain ol Lipton black tea is good and it has less calories than this.
13:34:00 <Lori S 🌧> But, yes, tbat's usually the case.
13:34:32 <Kevin L™🌵> That is a pretty big engine too Linda. It is 125' long and carries 6 drive axles and four cylinders. Drive wheels are almost 6' high.
13:34:41 <LindaG> So if you are enjoying it you know to stop 😉
13:35:01 <Lori S 🌧> LindaG, No, I know I SHOULD stop. ;)
13:35:35 <LindaG> Kevin L™🌵, wow amazing what people build
13:35:46 <LindaG> Lori S 🌧, key word ha!
13:38:09 <LindaG> I've never been on a pleasure train, just mass transit
13:46:15 <Kevin L™🌵> There are some good ones near you. You should check one out. Fall colors trains are great.
13:52:47 <Betty> hi all
13:52:56 <Kevin L™🌵> hi
13:53:08 <Betty> hi Kevin L™🌵
13:54:38 <LindaG> Betty, hi
13:54:53 <ynpvisitor83> OF ie
13:54:54 <LindaG> Nice doggies by OF
13:54:55 <Lori S 🌧> Hi Betty
13:55:22 <Betty> hi LindaG, Lori S 🌧
13:56:21 <LindaG> Weather is busy in west
13:57:09 <Lori S 🌨> :) The sleet has now turned to light snow.
13:57:11 <Dave from B™> Looks like Graham is getting exercise today
13:57:30 <Betty> hi Dave from B™
13:57:35 <Lori S 🌨> Dave from B™, yeah he is
13:57:57 <LindaG> First time looking at static, looks bleak out there
14:01:04 <Kevin L™🌵> Ashton to Idaho Falls looks terrible too. My daughter wants to come down here.
14:02:34 <Lori S 🌨>
14:03:07 <LindaG> So lori 24th at 3pm, Kevin L 25th noon and Graham 26th afternoon as hes leaving park are the 3 people still in the running
14:03:49 <LindaG> For SB bets
14:03:57 <Lori S 🌨> Though, in fairness, I guessed a second time after my first one fell through.
14:04:22 <Kevin L™🌵> I like the "herd of animals on the road" Lori.
14:04:25 <LindaG> Yes
14:04:37 <Dave from B™> Linda, thanks for keeping track and NOT allowing multiple predictions:)
14:04:57 <LindaG> 😊
14:06:07 <Lori S 🌨> Kevin L™🌵, Never noticed that before. Funny.
14:06:28 <Lori S 🌨> Dave from B™, My second one is a guess not a prediction. :) hehe
14:06:42 <LindaG> So its neck and neck between Kevin and graham
14:07:46 <Kevin L™🌵> My Son says Jan 29th at 1444.
14:07:53 <JarnoO> I'm also still in the running, with a 48h window, that is. 23 January @ 0345±24h (chat log 21 January @ 1719:24)
14:08:14 <Dave from B™> No windows allowed
14:09:57 <Kevin L™🌵> How about sliding glass doors?
14:10:12 <JarnoO> and barndoors?
14:13:29 <LindaG> BA
14:17:40 <Betty> LC
14:20:43 <Dave from B™> Kevin, that was a good movie. I forget the name
14:21:09 <Kevin L™🌵> What movie?
14:21:49 <LindaG> Sideways?
14:22:05 <LindaG> Or something g like that
14:22:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Who was in it?
14:22:42 <ynpvisitor46> Sideways would not be Kevin's kind of movie...about wine country
14:22:52 <LindaG> Paul giametti
14:22:55 <Dave from B™> Wasn't it Mr somebodies windows?
14:23:09 <Dave from B™> Old B&W you sent me
14:23:31 <Dave from B™> Building a new house where nothing went right
14:24:00 <Kevin L™🌵> Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House.
14:24:14 <Betty> oh, Kevin is hoping for a birthday SB :-) I vote for the 25th too
14:24:31 <Kevin L™🌵> I was sure you could relate
14:24:37 <LindaG> Oh a HB SB
14:24:39 <Dave from B™> That's it
14:24:54 <LindaG> Betty, what time?
14:25:13 <Dave from B™> Our builder did a little better
14:25:34 <LindaG> Robin's egg blue
14:25:38 <Betty> Early, around 8.
14:25:41 <Kevin L™🌵> I love the guy with the well.

17:10:04 <ynpvisitor80> 5 spikes near 50 in a few hours

17:18:56 <Kat> Craig I got a lot of footage up close on him
17:22:34 <CraigC> Jeff, doing well, thanks, you?
17:23:18 <Jeff> not bad just looking forward to getting back up to the park in a couple months
17:23:37 <CraigC> same
17:23:52 <CraigC> temp logger is different than any I can remember
17:24:15 <CraigC> repetitive large events... hmmmm
17:24:55 <CraigC> I have no idea what I would guess or assume from it
17:25:09 <ynpvisitor118> I tell you. The bison had too much coffee.
17:25:09 <Eric> Hey Craig...someone mentioned that the last long series started doing large minors before it died :-(
17:25:20 <CraigC> hushhhhh
17:25:23 <CraigC> :)
17:25:30 <Eric> Not saying that is what is happening...just a good rumor :-P
17:25:38 <CraigC> blowing itself out
17:25:48 <Jeff> dont say that eric lol i need it to go long enough for me to get my first experience
17:26:00 <Eric> I wish Graham could make it up there to see what it's actually doing!
17:26:14 <Eric> those 50+ degree eruptions I bet are pretty nice
17:26:15 <Lori S 🥶> Eric, :thumbsup:
17:26:26 <CraigC> Lori S 🥶, has your husband been near there?
17:26:31 <ynpvisitor118> It will restart. It always has.
17:26:42 <CraigC> but in how many years?
17:26:46 <Eric> Maybe not for 50 years!
17:26:48 <ynpvisitor118> Micah has tracks
17:26:50 <CraigC> 3, 5, 50?
17:26:57 <Lori S 🥶> CraigC, No. He was off today. Canyon yesterday but not to Norris.
17:26:58 <Eric> I might be dead :-(
17:27:41 <CraigC> well, then I can sell my trailer and put my boat back to use
17:27:50 <Lori S 🥶> One of us on here will most likely be alive in 50 years. Not on here at the moment thou.
17:28:43 <Lori S 🥶> Though, if I live to 104, I will certainly make every effort to be carted to SB. LOL
17:28:54 <Kat> Not I for sure! Grateful I have seen 2 eruptions, but it's not enough!!
17:29:09 <Jeff> ill be 81.... it better not wait that long
17:29:14 <Lori S 🥶> Kat, smae here.
17:30:07 <Jeff> at least you guys can say youve seen it
17:30:11 <Lori S 🥶> Jeff, Oh, but at least you have a better chance than many of us.
17:30:27 <Jeff> working in the park has its pros and cons lol
17:30:53 <Jeff> i had 2 3 day weekends when it pulled its 3 day eruptions on my friday monday and friday lol
17:31:13 <Jeff> ive missed it by mere hours
17:31:33 <Lori S 🥶> Jeff, I was stuck at work in 2018 for so many that I just knew were close. That sucked.
17:32:01 <Kat> I won't tell you how old I would be in 50 years - know this I will be dead! Please SB don't fail me now!
17:32:33 <Jeff> one of the eruptions in 18 (i dont remember which one) happened a half hour before i got off work
17:33:40 <Kat> LC
17:34:47 <Lori S 🥶> Hi Cooper
17:35:01 <Cooper> Hi Lori, and All.
17:35:14 <Lori S 🥶> I was just talking about you.
17:35:25 <Kat> HGi Cooper
17:35:34 <Kat> Hi*
17:35:38 <Cooper> HGi Kat:p

17:42:02 <Jeff> night kat
17:42:05 <Cooper> Bye Kat.
17:42:12 <Kat> Bye all
17:43:09 <Lori S 🥶> Bye Kat
17:44:04 <CraigC> is anyone driving the cam now?
17:46:28 <ynpvisitor37> Get our your steering wheel CraigC!
17:46:50 <CraigC> yeah, if people are still here watching, I will bounce it around for a few
17:47:12 <Cooper> Still Watching Craig, I have one eye on the screen.
17:47:18 <CraigC> I'm just listening to the hearings in the background
17:47:19 <ynpvisitor37> I’m only here to harass you for a few minutes
17:47:30 <CraigC> ynpvisitor37, give it your best ;)
17:47:41 <ynpvisitor37> Isn’t that what numbers do here?
17:47:44 <ynpvisitor106> You can stay awake?
17:48:05 <Lori S 🥶> ynpvisitor37, yes
17:48:38 <Lori S 🥶> Thx for pinch-driving CraigC
17:48:38 <CraigC> I lurk as a number sometimes, but I never take any shots at anyone as a number
17:48:41 <ynpvisitor106> Actually I have not been able to sleep when listening, they are way too annoying.
17:49:16 <CraigC> ynpvisitor106, schiff puts me to sleep, even though he is doing a brilliant job
17:49:33 <ynpvisitor106> Dave is the exception, he has a big target on him most days.
17:50:21 <Cooper> Thx Lori!
17:50:34 <CraigC> AL
17:50:44 <ynpvisitor106> To be honest, I can not listen. When I check in he is always saying the same thing, over and over and over again.
17:50:59 <CraigC> ynpvisitor106, yes, very repetitive
17:51:10 <CraigC> but Iliked his charts today
17:51:23 <ynpvisitor106> Nothing like Perry Mason.
17:52:16 <CraigC> if anyone wants to enter AL, have at it
17:53:46 <ynpvisitor2> have we seen Daisy?
17:53:47 <Cooper> nah, someone else can have it. I am too busy drinking Lori's hot cocoa
17:55:03 <ynpvisitor106> Time to heat up the stove. Enjoy
17:58:58 <CraigC> ynpvisitor2, not yet, I keep bouncing back to keep an eye on it
18:02:37 <CraigC> losing light fast
18:03:41 <CraigC> hey Graham
18:04:30 <GO SHOWER> Hello. Good day but no Aurum or Bee. 2b Grand was a surprise with first almost 10m
18:05:16 <Lori S 🥶> Hi Graham. Looks like you went for a leisurely stroll to Black Sand.
18:05:58 <CraigC> how was the trail past Black Sand Pool?
18:07:55 <CraigC> GO SHOWER, I signed off, if you want to move it around any before you turn in
18:10:33 <GO SHOWER> Trail was good, pretty hard packed as not much recent snow
18:10:44 <GO SHOWER> I am not on yhe cam...i am in park
18:11:11 <GO SHOWER> Rushed back to Daisy from BSB, but a nice quick visit
18:13:59 <ynpvisitor2> I will do the night cam Craig, no problem:)
18:15:08 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
18:15:29 <CraigC> you can also be on SB watch
18:15:48 <ynpvisitor2> :thumbsup:
18:16:09 <CraigC> maybe this is stupid, but I am worried about it
18:17:10 <KevinS> We all are Craig
18:17:23 <LindaG> Hi all
18:17:31 <CraigC> hey Linda
18:17:39 <KevinS> Hi Linda
18:17:41 <LindaG> CraigC, hi
18:17:58 <CraigC> it isn't the 13 days, it is the 5 spikes in a row
18:18:04 <LindaG> KevinS, hi
18:18:38 <ynpvisitor2> yep,worrisome
18:19:29 <Lori S 🥶> Hello LindaG Hello
18:19:57 <LindaG> Hello,lori hello
18:20:23 <LindaG> Oh temp is up again
18:20:39 <LindaG> Or was
18:20:52 <KevinS> CraigC, One thing for sure. One way or the other, it will continue to change.
18:21:09 <CraigC> unless it doesnt
18:21:39 <CraigC> who knows if Old Faithful went through thousands of years of wild variable intervals
18:23:09 <CraigC> if the large picture, all of it will change, you are right about that
18:23:13 <LindaG> Is that steam out there in the middle of screen? Over trees?
18:23:16 <KevinS> I think the wife is regretting not going back with me last year. After missing it in 2018, I wasn't taking chances.
18:23:41 <CraigC> LindaG, kinda looks like it
18:23:56 <LindaG> Excelsior area?
18:24:39 <KevinS> Excelsior would be behind Lion from this view
18:25:22 <KevinS> And too far to see in this light. IMO
18:25:30 <ynpvisitor2> dirty spot on dome
18:25:48 <LindaG> ynpvisitor2, probably 😊
18:26:59 <Lori S 🥶> It's Steamboat *wink wink*
18:27:24 <ynpvisitor2> :i:
18:27:35 <LindaG> 😀
18:28:09 <Kevin L™🌵> Great Fountain superburst
18:28:12 <LindaG> Night time viewing is challenging
18:28:25 <KevinS> Kevin L™🌵, :thumbsup:
18:29:53 <KevinS> Sapphire!
18:30:13 <Lori S 🥶> KevinS, I was about to say Wall Pool
18:30:50 <Lori S 🥶> Or was it Balck Diamond Pool that was huge?
18:30:56 <Lori S 🥶> Black Diamond
18:31:32 <KevinS> I was reading somewhere that sapphire eruptions after Hebgen were larger than SB.
18:32:34 <KevinS> Or my old feable mind is mistaking... Something in Biscut Basin.
18:33:02 <Lori S 🥶> KevinS, same here
18:33:33 <CraigC> my friend got hit by debris when one of those pools exploded, 90s I think
18:34:17 <KevinS>
18:35:17 <LindaG> Oh I loved sapphire pool somewhere I have pics of it.
18:35:19 <Lori S 🥶> What exactly is the cam pointed at right now?
18:35:42 <LindaG> OF lori
18:35:52 <Lori S 🥶> Oh, haha
18:36:06 <CraigC> it's a rare feature called Old Faithful
18:36:11 <LindaG> Light is making it blur
18:36:17 <Lori S 🥶> I looked away and when I looked back I thought we had a flying saucer
18:36:34 <CraigC> SB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
18:36:43 <LindaG> Hey hey
18:36:58 <Lori S 🥶> I can see it on a video now: Flying saucer sighted over Old aithful!"
18:37:03 <Lori S 🥶> OH, WOW
18:37:15 <Lori S 🥶> WHEEEEEEEE!
18:37:20 <LindaG> And you guys had it buried 😉
18:37:49 <KevinS> Feeling better!!!
18:38:22 <LindaG> Craig beat me to it, he posted on facebook
18:38:27 <ynpvisitor5> Hey i guesses the 23rd!!
18:38:45 <Eric> Nice, glad it erupted!
18:39:28 <Eric> 1/23 18:25
18:39:35 <ynpvisitor2> steamboat
18:40:52 <CraigC> wow, none of us noticed the GT entry way before the YNM
18:41:20 <Eric> haha Lori...nice call on that spot being steamboat at 18:26 :-P
18:41:24 <LindaG> For the 23rd we had Linda at 2am, jarno at 3:45am, Kevin s at 10:17 I think that's it
18:41:45 <LindaG> Eric, 😊
18:41:47 <ynpvisitor39> Woohoo
18:41:48 <Eric> that entry didn't get entered until 18:29, but yep...he uses the API which doesn't buffer
18:42:27 <LindaG> I knew that was steamboat out there. 😉
18:42:39 <ynpvisitor68> Interval 29 minutes longer than preceding one
18:43:02 <Lori S 🥶> See, I told you it was Steamboat! hehe
18:43:19 <LindaG> Lori S 🥶, 😍
18:43:26 <Eric> Lori is SMRT!
18:45:24 <Lori S 🥶> LindaG, Pointing out that my second guess was 1500 plus or minus 6 hrs. But there were no windows.
18:45:53 <Lori S 🥶> Now that was a lucky guess.
18:46:22 <ynpvisitor2> good catch, Lori
18:46:36 <CraigC> I expected to see it on YNM when I woke this morning
18:46:37 <LindaG> Lori S 🥶, I have the 24th written down
18:47:30 <CraigC> maybe not "expected", but wanted
18:48:35 <ynpvisitor92> It’s going to be a lot harder to catch steamboat in person this year even if it stays active with longer intervals
18:48:36 <Lori S 🥶> LindaG, hah you are so right. Hey, I got the time part right. :p
18:48:49 <LindaG> Lori S 🥶, 😀
