02:05:38 <ynpvisitor101> Daisy?
02:06:08 <ynpvisitor65> I think it should be higher
02:06:51 <ynpvisitor101> yes, more likely one of the Terracottas
02:07:23 <Betty> hi Joe

02:08:00 <LindaG> Hi
02:08:07 <Betty> hi LindaG
02:08:49 <LindaG> Joe, hi
02:09:08 <LindaG> Having a sleepless night ☹
02:09:54 <Betty> the weather keeps you awake?
02:09:54 <Joe> HI Linda
02:11:25 <LindaG> Weather is ok. Just one of those nights.
02:25:19 <Joe> AURUM
02:25:43 <LindaG> Insee 😁
02:26:23 <LindaG> Wheres Kevin 😉
02:27:26 <Joe> Dilipated
02:27:38 <LindaG> Dilapidated too
02:28:17 <Joe> :)
02:32:27 <Joe> Well back to the Lazy-Boy and tablet
02:33:40 <LindaG> That's exactly where I am
02:38:51 <ynpvisitor83> castle
02:57:02 <Betty> ohh, missed Aurum and Dilapidated :-(
03:05:22 <LindaG> Betty, 😥
03:05:36 <Betty> Lion
03:05:55 <LindaG> Lions up to something
03:07:40 <LindaG> Nice
03:07:54 <ynpvisitor83> yep 0304
03:39:58 <Betty> Great Fountain?????
03:40:17 <Betty> impressive steam cloud
03:50:23 <ynpvisitor100> daizy
03:58:52 <LindaG> Birds are starting to sign here. Happy Easter by the way!
04:03:41 <Betty> Dilapidated ie
04:05:14 <Betty> OF
04:10:19 <LindaG> Good night bbl
04:11:22 <Betty> night
04:11:40 <Betty> happy easter Linda
04:28:11 <Betty> Lion
05:06:42 <Betty> morning Graham
05:07:08 <GO BSB> morning Betty. how are you?
05:07:53 <Betty> doing great, I hope you too?
05:08:28 <GO BSB> i am too, trying to be upbeat. hows the mood in Germany?
05:08:55 <Betty> rising hope is the tenor
05:10:06 <GO BSB> similar here, numbers seem to be somewhat controlable but nobody has a clue what to do next
05:10:55 <Betty> yeah, that´s how it is here
05:11:46 <GO BSB> pretty much the case worldwide
05:12:54 <Joe> there is MGB again although much smaller
05:14:41 <Betty> we are down till April 20th, then we will be slowly be able to come back to somewhat normal (hopefully)
05:15:01 <Betty> any idea about that, Joe?
05:16:19 <Betty> maybe Graham should change to GO EXCELSIOR lol
05:16:26 <Joe> None Betty, but I have seen MGB many times at night just not as large.
05:16:54 <Betty> yes, that was what is surprising me
05:21:26 <Joe> 1IF grand keeps its 5h 30+ min avg we should see it between 6-630
05:21:42 <GO BSB> good luck with the restart Betty, we wil all be watching and hoping its successful
05:22:53 <GO BSB> us population is less organized than Germany, so I dont know what will work here, different parts of the country are at different stages, so its much more of a patchwork approach and people are used to freedom of movement
05:23:34 <GO BSB> at least the crush on the hospitals is less severe than it might have been, so some measures are working
05:24:16 <Betty> that is IF it happens. It is also possible that we get a longer shutdown
05:30:01 <Joe> At least we have a scientific / medical community that looks after things such as this and will be dealt with over time, no matter what flavor your political kool-aid is
05:31:58 <GO BSB> wwhere are you joe? nt sure we do in US
05:32:48 <Joe> Politicians spend money the rest of us do our part and solve problems
05:33:40 <GO BSB> we do? Not if you believe all the people still out socializing
05:35:14 <Joe> n t all there is always a group of spolied brain dead people
05:36:35 <GO BSB> I am worried that the US being so capatilist, it's hard for it to managethe situation since theres much more of a me me me mentaity and suspicion of anything socially structured to benefit all
05:37:54 <GO BSB> everyone (individuals, industry, farmers) all expect the govenrment to throw money at them, but theres little coordination and the healthcare system is so fractured
05:38:05 <Joe> The scientific labs and university's have always taken the behind scene lead in things like these no matter what
05:39:30 <GO BSB> i know the governors are doing the leading, hope that continues
05:40:04 <Joe> IIt might be a sense of pride or recognition but we do have very dedicated hard working people
05:42:03 <Joe> The Governors should do the leading, not the Feds, that is why the prople before us fought so hard for states rights
05:46:57 <Joe> It is unfortunate that our scientific community has to play the political game to get money to operate
05:49:19 <Joe> but most scientists are worlds smarter than any politician and understand how to acheive their goals :)
05:50:32 <GO BSB> yeah, the scientific community within the government has been beaten down so much in the last 3 years though, they have largely been dismissed as irrelevant by the administration, that is so sad, it could take many years to recover
05:51:57 <Joe> They will do more than just recover, you can bet on that
05:54:08 <Joe> Well... stepping down off of my soap box, it's geyser time :)
05:57:51 <Joe> OOPs the last OF was a short I think, so I missed one
06:00:24 <Joe> Yep, OF shadow across the medapw 0508
06:04:46 <Betty> Riverside
06:07:08 <Betty> Daisy
06:07:54 <Joe> I'm glad you caught that I was afk getting coffee:)
06:10:01 <Betty> :thumbsup:
06:12:54 <Joe> CC should be here for Grand
06:21:05 <JarnoO> morning all
06:21:18 <Betty> afternoon JarnoO
06:21:27 <JarnoO> afternoon Betty
06:21:33 <Joe> Afternoon Jarno
06:23:03 <JarnoO> Betty, that plume you saw left of the Lion group is from Midway, from the "usual suspects" (Grand Prismatic and Excelsior)
06:23:43 <Betty> it was really huge and had a sudden rise
06:24:32 <Betty> that usual steam was in the area all the time, but suddenly it grew tall
06:24:43 <Joe> There was also one at 0127 (normal) and one later (normal)
06:25:21 <Betty> maybe it was Opal Pool erupting
06:25:56 <JarnoO> isn't Opal Pool usually just one or two bursts and done?
06:31:20 <GO BSB> i very much doubt you would see Opal Pool, its steam is likely still less than Excelsior
06:31:52 <JarnoO> Aurum steam?
06:32:07 <GO BSB> JarnoO - the description of Opal Pool in GoY is not accurate. It does have bursts but it can keep on bursting over and over for an hour, not sure how long
06:32:34 <JarnoO> interesting
06:32:46 <Betty> maybe OF steamdrift
06:33:37 <GO BSB> the bursts are short, and theres a longer pause between them, but if you hear its active or see the steam cloud as you drive by, its worth stopping (if theres any parking). I have seen the steam cloud twice while driving and pulled in (when Midway wasnt as busy as it s nowadays)
06:33:43 <GO BSB> I always look over there
06:33:59 <Joe> static shows possible OF 30 min ago
06:35:25 <GO BSB> when it was active youcould drive in the parking lot and check to see if there was water in the runoff channel which would indicate it was in overflow and go up there to sit for a while. if no overflow you gignt need to walk up
06:35:43 <GO BSB> or didnt
06:37:31 <GO BSB> the year it was regularly active I couldnt wait there for it much as I had my mother with me
06:37:56 <JarnoO> that's unfortunate
06:38:13 <GO BSB> one time I saw it and came back to UGB and was happy to report it ... and found out that everyone was watching Giantess ie
06:38:28 <GO BSB> I am happy to have seen it, not active much
06:38:40 <JarnoO> typical, right?
06:38:44 <JarnoO> morning Linda
06:38:55 <LindaG> JarnoO, hi
06:39:00 <GO BSB> yeah, at least i was there in time for Vault initial
06:39:32 <JarnoO> GRand
06:39:40 <Betty> lucky you
06:39:56 <GO BSB> thats a big steam column!
06:40:35 <Joe> Look at static A 0605 do you see OF then
06:41:15 <GO BSB> very unlikely there were two short intervals in a row
06:41:53 <JarnoO> SC wants to go
06:42:02 <GO BSB> and it looks like OF is in preplay based on that last big steam push
06:42:06 <Joe> thanks
06:43:10 <JarnoO> Of
06:43:41 <GO BSB> nice
06:43:55 <JarnoO> good start
06:44:07 <GO BSB> down to 5F
06:44:32 <JarnoO> should warm up quickly now
06:46:29 <KorbenC> Morning Everyone
06:46:45 <JarnoO> morning Coope... Korben

06:49:04 <KorbenC> Hi Craig, CC, Linda
06:49:06 <CC> Morning everyone
06:49:12 <CraigC> hey Korben
06:49:16 <LindaG> CC, hi
06:49:33 <CC> Joe I will take cam when Grand is over
06:49:37 <KorbenC> and so it begins: Already a confirmed tornado on radar in Texas :)
06:49:37 <Betty> morning CC
06:49:40 <Joe> Hi CC cam is yours
06:49:42 <CraigC> hey Joe, how's it going
06:50:58 <Joe> I am still alive Craig, so that might be good for some one, I think, how are you ??
06:51:25 <CraigC> Joe, same... my daughter doesn't have to find a home yet
06:51:36 <Joe> :)
06:52:02 <CraigC> used to have enough in my 401k for her to pay it off if I died... alas...
06:52:52 <JarnoO> pretty sky
06:52:53 <Joe> It will come back, and then some more
06:53:14 <CraigC> Joe, if I am still alive ;)
06:53:26 <Joe> :thumbsup:
06:53:57 <CraigC> what if we have heart attacks from all this before even getting exposed
06:54:49 <Joe> yeah! or get his by a bus :)
06:55:01 <CraigC> lol
06:55:21 <Joe> his=hit
06:56:40 <GO BSB> she can always mve int othe slightly damaged trailer
06:57:12 <Joe> we could be in Yellowstone and get hit by a breaking flag pole on the Inn
06:57:49 <LindaG🐣> Or run over by a bison
06:58:33 <GO BSB> or hit by a SB rock
06:58:47 <LindaG🐣> 😊
06:58:50 <GO BSB> electric peak looks nice
06:59:42 <GO BSB> and lake
06:59:48 <Joe> It would first strike the camers and move it such that everyone could laugh at the last expression on our facc, before pulverizing us :)
07:00:32 <Joe> or p;oeverizing :)
07:00:33 <LindaG🐣> And everyone would die happy
07:00:58 <Joe> poleverizing **
07:01:49 <Betty> LC ie
07:02:10 <GO BSB> BH is awake
07:03:29 <JarnoO> that's a good sign
07:03:47 <JarnoO> AB
07:04:23 <KorbenC> about time for Bee I hope :p I would like a nice 13h interval
07:06:17 <LindaG🐣> Steamer
07:10:37 <Betty> bbl
07:13:03 <Joe> So ON this Easter Sunday is everyone sitting around in their colorful Easter finery, or are you sitting around unshaven and still in your PJs like me??
07:13:30 <CC> in my Pja
07:13:44 <CC> Pj's
07:14:05 <CraigC> the bunny rabbit PJs, or dinosaurs?
07:14:18 <Joe> yes
07:14:19 <GO BSB> i got dressed, jeans, but I have not shaved for months
07:14:38 <GO BSB> washburn looks nice now too
07:16:02 <LindaG🐣> Sweat pants and sweat shirt, but I do have my Easter hat on. 😉
07:16:51 <CraigC> Joe, I wish I had done this Ham thing years ago, my memory is killing me now... struggling on the practice quizzes
07:16:58 <LindaG🐣> Ha! That was a must when i was a kid.. the Easter hat!
07:18:32 <CraigC> AL?
07:19:18 <Joe> I don't know if I could pass the test now, Craig I can barely find the ptt button anymore
07:19:34 <ynpvisitor23> Shaving facial hair is recommended to prevent virus remaining on the face
07:20:05 <CC> Keeping an eye on Lion for Jarno
07:20:14 <CraigC> Joe, if I pass it will I end up compelled to build a 400 ft antenna in my back yard?
07:20:27 <Joe> Will washing your face do the trick??
07:22:05 <Joe> You will go through that phase Craig but then in a few years youn will ask "why did I do that??"
07:22:32 <CraigC> like everything else? LMAO
07:22:52 <Joe> : )
07:24:15 <LindaG🐣> Dwarfs look steamy
07:24:23 <LindaG🐣> And DEP
07:24:41 <CraigC> hey Chris
07:24:50 <JarnoO> morning Chris
07:24:50 <ChrisO> hey Craig
07:24:59 <ChrisO> morning JarnoO
07:25:15 <LindaG🐣> hi
07:25:24 <LindaG🐣> ChrisO, hi
07:25:49 <ChrisO> hey Linda :)
07:27:11 <LindaG🐣> Aurum is due
07:28:33 <Joe> I had an HF rig once listening to people around the world talking, but every year it was the same old stories, when certain people started talking you could sit there and say exactly what they were going to say, It only took a few years to tire of that.
07:29:01 <LindaG🐣> Wow was that anemone
07:29:08 <CraigC> LOL
07:29:17 <CC> been very active this morning
07:31:18 <CraigC> mc again
07:32:55 <JarnoO> Aurum
07:32:56 <JarnoO> .
07:32:57 <JarnoO> .
07:32:58 <JarnoO> .
07:33:43 <CraigC> good call, Linda
07:33:58 <GO BSB> MC intervals were typically 17min
07:34:19 <LindaG🐣> 😊 it was at 5 hours
07:36:07 <Joe> Linda starts dancing when Aurum approaches 5 hours :)
07:36:31 <ynpvisitor33> well the blowing snow and frigid temperatures arrived at 4pm yesterday
07:37:05 <ynpvisitor33> hard to believe we mowed the yard and finished watering it about 3:30 pm
07:37:31 <CraigC> ynpvisitor33, where
07:37:41 <ynpvisitor33> Wyoming
07:38:01 <CraigC> watering seems early for here
07:38:18 <LindaG🐣> Joe, 😊 I'm an aurum devotee, now we have two for today
07:38:29 <Kitt> usually snows at this time of the year would be heavy and wet
07:38:47 <CC> LC
07:38:53 <Kitt> we have made it to the low 70's
07:39:11 <Joe> Yes linda I can tell that you are :)
07:39:23 <Kitt> very little precipitation in February and March
07:39:27 <CraigC> we have a weird phenomenon in our yard this Spring.... many sprinkler heads are higher than the lawn.... some kind of strange settling of the ground
07:40:40 <CraigC> AL
07:40:55 <Kitt> have a good day, hope to see bee later
07:41:05 <CraigC> hi an dbye kitt
07:46:08 <LindaG🐣> Bbl
07:46:19 <KorbenC> bye Linda
07:46:52 <JarnoO> cya Linda
08:12:38 <JarnoO> SC ie
08:15:00 <Joe> Jarno, did you get the third item that i sent?
08:15:34 <JarnoO> I did, thanks
08:15:39 <CC> OF
08:15:41 <JarnoO> OF
08:16:02 <Joe> Good
08:16:19 <JarnoO> steam from Dilapidated
08:16:34 <JarnoO> just some light stuff, though
08:17:34 <JarnoO> and done
08:17:36 <JarnoO> short
08:29:47 <JarnoO> Daisy
08:29:56 <CC> Daisy
08:30:27 <JarnoO> morning Jeff
08:30:36 <Jeff> afternoon JarnoO
08:49:17 <Joe> Jarno email last for now
08:51:32 <JarnoO> Thanks Joe :)
09:05:31 <LindaG> It's a wonderful day in the neighborhood. Around 70 deg.
09:07:25 <JarnoO> SC wants to go
09:08:41 <JarnoO> SC
09:24:51 <JarnoO> OF
09:25:12 <JarnoO> took some time to get going
09:33:44 <LindaG> Lake is real pretty
09:34:49 <KorbenC> ab
09:35:51 <JarnoO> morning Dave
09:36:12 <DaveM> Happy Easter
09:36:22 <JarnoO> same to you
09:40:37 <Ben VL> Happy Easter everyone!
09:41:06 <JarnoO> morning Ben, happy easter to you too
09:41:35 <Ben VL> Think I should point out that that plume last night is in the EXACT right spot for Excelsior.
09:43:25 <LindaG> Happy Easter
09:43:59 <LindaG> Ben VL, the plume that appears over ridge above lion?
09:44:11 <Ben VL> Yes
09:44:32 <LindaG> I didnt see it last night but I've seen before
09:45:03 <Ben VL> It's on the GOSA overnight capture on youtube
09:45:28 <LindaG> 👍
09:45:42 <DaveM> It was from Midway. It is the Excelsior plume -- bigger than normal
09:46:05 <Ben VL> I don't want to jump to conclusions but I think it is on the table
09:46:51 <Ben VL> I'm looking at the Firehole river guage between LGB and Madison for a spike
09:47:47 <Ben VL> If there even would be one
09:48:39 <CraigC> OMG, I just looked at it
09:48:53 <Ben VL> Yeah. It's BIG
09:48:54 <CraigC> that is crazy
09:49:12 <KorbenC> what is all the excitmnet about?
09:50:00 <Ben VL> The ENGR note on GT last night and the cooresponding WC capture
09:50:13 <KorbenC> do you ahve a ling to the river daya?
09:50:16 <KorbenC> data**
09:50:29 <Ben VL> Yea 1 sec
09:50:37 <CraigC> here is screenshot; https://imgur.com/T88uZNU
09:50:48 <ynpvisitor8> https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?cb_00010=on&cb_00060=on&cb_00065=on&cb_00095=on&format=gif_default&site_no=06036905&period=1&begin_date=2020-04-05&end_date=2020-04-12
09:50:53 <KorbenC> holy cow
09:50:57 <LindaG> CraigC, what time?
09:51:03 <JarnoO> wow... That's indeed massive. It even shows some typical "spiking" steam when Grand has those big bursts
09:51:03 <ynpvisitor8> This is Ben VL. I have the chat open on my phone
09:51:04 <KorbenC> looks like SB kind of steam plume, but not SB
09:51:17 <LindaG> Oh wow
09:51:30 <KorbenC> what the heck could the from
09:51:41 <KorbenC> I know the answer, but do I beleive all the options
09:51:45 <Ben VL> It lines up perfectly with Excelsior
09:51:58 <Ben VL> Like PERFECTLY
09:52:08 <KorbenC> when does river data update?
09:52:33 <Ben VL> Draw a line on google maps from the webcam to Excelsior
09:52:49 <KorbenC> it lines up perfectly...
09:52:55 <KorbenC> but where is the spike on river data?
09:53:03 <Ben VL> Idk
09:53:18 <KorbenC> if something erupded wouldnt there be a big spike?
09:53:19 <Ben VL> Either there wont be one or it hasnt shown up yet
09:53:20 <JarnoO> Korben, I would assume it updates once every hour like that of the Tantalus gauge
09:53:29 <Ben VL> Or it wasn't excelsior
09:53:47 <KorbenC> Yeah, but it has already updated for that time.
09:54:26 <Ben VL> The gauge is a couple miles out.
09:54:56 <JarnoO> I do think, that if it weren't for the night, we would have seen some billowing steam seen the size of it
09:55:07 <ynpvisitor55> Please note everything was putting out a large steam cloud at that time. Look at Riverside's cloud this morning. Also, look at how the clouds shade the midway shade the midway cloud at that time making it stand out more.
09:55:19 <KorbenC> does it line up with indigo spring or opal?
09:57:25 <CraigC> ynpvisitor55, but it is a burst, not just steam emitting
09:57:44 <ynpvisitor55> look again
09:58:02 <ynpvisitor55> it is there before teh cloud turns dark
09:58:20 <Ben VL> Indigo maybe. Opal I think would be a hair to the left
09:58:30 <KorbenC> HMM!
09:58:35 <KorbenC> Maybe it was Indigo
09:58:47 <KorbenC> no know eruptions, but some people have "seen" it in the past
09:59:09 <Ben VL> If it were steam emitting wouldn't there be two columns? Excelsior and GP?
09:59:40 <CraigC> my own early morning observations, GP puts out more steam
10:00:42 <ynpvisitor55> very rarely can both excelsiors and GP's steam clouds be seen as seperate plumes from OF
10:02:53 <Ben VL> Again, I don't want to jump to conclusions, but I am considering it a possibility.
10:03:45 <GO BSB> far more likely to be the obvious Exelsior/GP steam cloud than anythng else. I doubt Indigo or Opal would put up steam to compete with them
10:04:11 <ynpvisitor55> it is a possibility but someone on ground would need to take a look
10:04:28 <GO BSB> but this is speculation.geysertimes.org :)
10:04:53 <ynpvisitor53> Has there been any new plumes above lion since?
10:05:10 <JarnoO> not as far as I'm aware
10:05:20 <GO BSB> there was a plume in the usual spot erlier
10:05:42 <LindaG> Usually the steam cloud is billowy and slow in that area. Last nights looked like it was a burst
10:05:55 <GO BSB> hard to have a "new plume" in a spot that usually has a plume visible in cold or humid weather
10:07:20 <JarnoO> In the event that Excelsior did have an eruption last night, how visible would that be, as in, when do the "obvious" signs disappear
10:07:28 <JarnoO> ?
10:07:55 <KorbenC> idk
10:08:12 <Ben VL> Shortly
10:08:31 <Ben VL> I don't think it typically lasted more than 10 mins
10:08:34 <DaveM> it would clear out rnoff channels that haven't been washed since the 1980s.
10:08:47 <Ben VL> I can check Transactions laster on that
10:08:59 <DaveM> signs would be vissible for days if not weeks.
10:09:24 <JarnoO> and rocks scattered on the boardwalks and surroundings? Or is that a bit unlikely?
10:09:24 <Ben VL> Yes, destruction would be obvious
10:09:25 <KorbenC> maybe we could get a ranger to go look somehow
10:10:03 <LindaG> I must have signed on just after that, couldnt sleep
10:11:23 <JarnoO> Maybe Bill goes to Yellowstone tomorrow or somewhere this week. Then we could ask him if he could stop by at Excelsior and take some photographs or document what he sees in general there :)
10:12:20 <KorbenC> if only we had a webcame there
10:12:24 <JarnoO> haha
10:12:56 <KorbenC> Bee loking really good
10:16:25 <CraigC> Mike Vogel is on his way there, if not already there
10:16:34 <CraigC> to YNP
10:17:32 <KorbenC> we should ask him to peek at midway
10:18:04 <CraigC> I just posted it to his FB page
10:19:11 <LindaG> Oh good pic of excelsior erupting in geysers of yellowstone
10:26:19 <ynpvisitor68> Did Betty see giant?
10:27:00 <GO BSB> steamy bee
10:27:02 <DaveM> no -- big steam plume from Midway
10:27:12 <CraigC> ynpvisitor68, https://imgur.com/T88uZNU
10:33:20 <LindaG> Lake real nice
10:40:04 <KorbenC> Hi Lori
10:40:45 <Lori S> Hi KorbenC, looks like the Bandaid is gone
10:40:53 <LindaG> Hello lori hello
10:41:09 <Lori S> Hello Linda Hello
10:41:24 <LindaG> Lori S, look at discussion above
10:41:27 <Lori S> Looks like Betty saw my steam cloud from days ago. What day was that Linda?
10:41:38 <LindaG> This morning
10:41:54 <LindaG> Craig posted screen print
10:42:00 <CraigC> https://imgur.com/T88uZNU
10:42:06 <Lori S> No Lind, I saw that same steam cloud one evening on here
10:42:28 <LindaG> Lori S, we've seen it a few times, but not as big as this
10:42:34 <Lori S> It was decided it was a big cloud. Very cloudy day that eve
10:42:48 <LindaG> That's the one we joke about being steamboat
10:42:56 <Lori S> Go Indigo Spring :)
10:43:12 <Lori S> Stand by while I read up
10:43:24 <LindaG> Lori S, I'm not sure which night your referring to
10:48:40 <JarnoO> morning Dan
10:49:22 <DanS> morning
10:49:29 <JarnoO> morning KevinS
10:49:40 <KevinS> JarnoO, Morning
10:49:45 <LindaG> Hi kn Kevin and dan
10:49:48 <KorbenC> Hi Kevin and Dan
10:50:43 <ynpvisitor68> I seem to remember but could not tell you the date.
10:50:48 <KevinS> Good morning to all. Looks like a interesting moring. Can someone share a link to the video of the unknown plume?
10:50:51 <JarnoO> Daisy
10:51:03 <Lori S> Ok, I skimmed. Linda, maybe it wasn't you I discussed that with before. Now I will have to go check past chats :)
10:51:13 <CraigC> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2fyVF32eXI&t=643s
10:51:20 <ynpvisitor68> Someone needs to pin it to the note
10:51:36 <CraigC> KevinS, it is linked here down in helpful links
10:52:01 <LindaG> Lori S, we have talked about that oplume being excelsior. But Not within the last few weeks.
10:52:30 <Lori S> So the night I saw it first, I did a measure distance on Google Maps
10:52:32 <DanS> Opal?
10:52:48 <CraigC> I would expect most steam over the trees there to be Grand Prismatic, based upon personal early morning observations
10:53:09 <Lori S> lined up with Indigo Spring, which is quite close to the same line as Excelsior from here but slightly to the right
10:53:35 <Lori S> but what do I know :)
10:55:03 <Lori S> Wait, I think Emily was on that night. I recall her helping me locate what might be in line with the steam
10:55:36 <LindaG> I remember Emily being on.
10:56:07 <LindaG> Lori S, I'm on here Tuesday nights
10:56:18 <LindaG> That narrows it down
10:57:37 <ynpvisitor108> Thunderbirds flyover: https://www.reviewjournal.com/?p=2005052?itm_source=parsely-api
10:58:21 <ynpvisitor68> Nice lion around 3 am. That steam is also visible at the beginning of the video, all be it smaller.
10:58:23 <Lori S> LindaG, that definitely helps! It was before COVID hit and I think I was still working. So before 2/6
10:58:57 <CraigC> our thunderbirds show was cancelled this year for HAFB
11:00:00 <ynpvisitor108> Since they live here they did a flyover of all the hospitals and the Boulder City Veterans Home.
11:00:04 <LindaG> Lori S, then again maybe I was just hanging out and not on cam
11:00:13 <Lori S> Thou I'm not sureI have enough time on my hands to search LOL
11:00:40 <Kevin L™ > For got to change my name.
11:00:49 <LindaG> I'm looking
11:00:57 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, hi
11:00:59 <Lori S> LindaG, I will start with Tues and then go from there. I may try just a google search since chat sometimes comes up there
11:01:18 <Lori S> I did a get vid that night. when did get vid start?
11:01:43 <Lori S> but I delted the vid when we decided it was a cloud
11:01:56 <Ben VL> Any keywords like 'Excelsior' mentioned that day? I can help look
11:02:40 <Lori S> "left of lion group" possibly
11:03:00 <Lori S> i mentioned it lining up with the river sort of
11:03:21 <LindaG> Lori S, was that the night we joked it was steamboat?
11:03:53 <Lori S> yes, yes, I think we did. so that narrows it way down
11:04:12 <LindaG> That was a while ago
11:04:32 <ynpvisitor68> What is Kevin doig today? No egg hunt, no race, no family.
11:04:36 <Ben VL> Before or after the new year?
11:04:46 <Lori S> Ben VL, I'm not sure
11:04:56 <LindaG> I'm not either
11:05:41 <LindaG> ynpvisitor68, he logged on
11:06:01 <Ben VL> I'll start by checking Jan and Feb this year
11:09:15 <LindaG> Wow that dead bison was from Feb 4th, i would say the plume was before that
11:09:22 <Lori S> Ben VL, :thumbsup:
11:09:59 <Lori S> I just want to put a note on GT now, but wonder if Joe has a video
11:10:05 <ynpvisitor68> What dead bison? The one that got eat, or the one they drug away?
11:10:19 <LindaG> The one that got eaten
11:11:54 <Lori S> Emily provided a fb message that may narrow it to 1/23 or before
11:12:58 <Ben VL> Well, then after Jan I will check Dec '19
11:14:11 <Lori S> 1/23/20 18:23
11:15:26 <DanS> pretty start, OF
11:16:19 <DanS> as sun pops for a moment...
11:16:21 <Ben VL> Yep.
11:16:33 <LindaG> I might have been driving that night. Not sure but I would have zoomed in if I was
11:17:20 <EmilyW> howdy
11:19:24 <Ben VL> That plume is a lot firther to the left, IMO
11:19:38 <Lori S> Hi Emily, thx for finding that msg!
11:19:54 <Ben VL> It lines up with a different part of the river per GOSA YT log
11:20:01 <Lori S> Ben VL, which, the 1/23? maybe
11:20:54 <Lori S> did you find the capture?
11:21:30 <Ben VL> Yeah
11:21:58 <Ben VL> But there's nothing in the direction of where I think that is...
11:22:09 <ynpvisitor68> Well, if i wanted to see soemthing go around in a circle, I would get out the spirograph. So see you later.
11:23:28 <LindaG> I looked at it, and it wasnt over lion, it was further left.
11:24:11 <Lori S> what's he link to the cam history again?
11:24:23 <LindaG> YouTube gosa
11:24:37 <Ben VL> This one is above the right 'straight portion' of the river from the WC and the other one looks like it is above the left one
11:24:44 <Lori S> oh right
11:26:32 <LindaG> Certainlymweve seen steam in the same area as this morning, but nothing that big
11:26:54 <LindaG> *certainly we've
11:27:06 <Ben VL> Yeah. Either way that plume is smaller
11:27:29 <Ben VL> The one this morning looked very thick
11:27:47 <Lori S> Ah, I see it now.
11:28:54 <Lori S> Well, if I measured 1/23 to be Midway, then this morning would be Great Fountain, no?
11:29:07 <Lori S> *might be
11:29:26 <Lori S> or I measured wrong. that's also possible :)
11:31:58 <Ben VL> No. The 1-23 doesen't line up with anything.
11:32:21 <ynpvisitor55> great fountain is north north east of OF, so would be to the right of BH
11:32:24 <Ben VL> I have no idea what that could ha e been
11:32:33 <Ben VL> have*
11:32:42 <LindaG> Ben VL, I think it was dirt or ice or something
11:33:04 <Ben VL> That's possible
11:33:23 <Ben VL> This one is straight to midway
11:34:08 <CraigC> has Grand Prismatic ever burped?
11:35:57 <LindaG> I just read they said it would boil and have waves but hasnt been seen so ce late 1800s
11:36:12 <LindaG> *since
11:36:18 <Betty> back
11:36:29 <Betty> happy Easter to all
11:36:35 <CraigC> hey Betty
11:36:51 <Betty> hi CraigC
11:37:03 <CraigC> Betty, when do they do the Passion Play in Germany
11:37:05 <LindaG> CraigC, wave-like pulses
11:37:11 <Kevin L™ > Frohe Ostern auch dir
11:38:03 <Ben VL> The centerpoint of the plume where it rise above the trees lines up with turquoise pool, but given the wind direction and thickness of the plume I am inclined to say it came from Excelsior
11:38:06 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, any surprise Easter eggs today? 😉
11:38:43 <Kevin L™ > Nope. Next year I should have Easter Eggs
11:39:02 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, 👍
11:39:42 <Betty> CraigC, famous Oberammergauer Passionsspiele will be played in 2022 instead of this year
11:39:55 <Betty> Thx Kevin
11:39:58 <CraigC> Betty, :thumbsup:
11:40:01 <Kevin L™ > Freight on the loop Linda
11:40:29 <LindaG> 😀
11:46:43 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, a twofer
11:47:06 <Kevin L™ > Flying meet!
11:53:56 <Betty> thanks for your comment on my note of that steamcloud this morning, DaveM. I thought it was Midway area.
11:54:49 <KorbenC> Be back in 30
12:16:24 <Betty> OF window
12:16:38 <Betty> OF ie static
12:21:59 <DanS> Riverside
12:25:06 <DanS> Bulger
12:33:01 <DanS> Something else downbasin, or has wind shifted on Riverside?
12:34:41 <DanS> Just riverside, me thinks
12:34:59 <ynpvisitor33> Just riverside, I think.
12:35:08 <ynpvisitor33> Grand
12:35:21 <LindaG> Nice
12:35:26 <ynpvisitor33> I don't think Grotto is ie, by the way.
12:36:21 <Betty> OT ie
12:41:24 <ynpvisitor55> That was not Groto at 1227ie
12:41:53 <DanS> will remove
12:54:25 <KorbenC> Back
12:54:36 <KorbenC> that was a good game of monopoly :)
12:54:42 <KorbenC> Yellowstone Edition
12:56:44 <ynpvisitor33> What are the low-rent properties?
12:57:54 <KorbenC> THe start?
12:58:18 <Kevin L™ > OF?
12:59:33 <KorbenC> OF is the msot expensive properrty
12:59:39 <KorbenC> 400$
12:59:42 <ynpvisitor33> Maybe Indian Creek campground?
12:59:53 <KorbenC> and SB only costs like 180$ or something
13:00:04 <KorbenC> the cheapest property is rossevelt arch
13:00:21 <Kevin L™ > How about Giantess?
13:00:27 <Ben VL> I bet sawmill is the cheapest property
13:00:41 <ynpvisitor33> Sawmill is closed for renovations.
13:00:47 <KorbenC> the only geysers are OF and SB
13:00:54 <KorbenC> and Great FOuntain
13:01:02 <KorbenC> Lori, you sitll here?
13:01:17 <Kevin L™ > Strange. Maybe we need a geyser gazer version
13:01:39 <KorbenC> Most expensive SB, least OF :0
13:01:46 <Ben VL> Sawmill is recovering from the OS update apple performed on it
13:02:07 <Kevin L™ > I have a German version that uses DM instead of Euros.
13:02:46 <Lori S> KorbenC, Oh, wb. I was on another web page
13:02:55 <KorbenC> Ok
13:03:05 <Betty> me too, most expensive is Schloßallee
13:03:26 <Kevin L™ > Right next to Park Platz.
13:04:37 <DanS> daisy
13:05:30 <Kevin L™ > And they have Haupt Bahnhof along with some others.
13:06:05 <Ben VL> Waimangu and Minguini
13:08:22 <Betty> Parkstraße
13:09:32 <Kevin L™ > You still can't beat Barricade though
13:14:16 <Kevin L™ > If I remember correctly the German Version used streets in Munich didn't it Betty?
13:21:07 <KorbenC> lc ie.
13:21:15 <KorbenC> for like 2 mins at least now
13:22:15 <Betty> Not that I know, Kevin. I think they just chose familiar names of streets or places you can find in almost every town in Germany. So it is possible you can find all the names in Munich
13:25:24 <Kevin L™ > The US version is done from Atlantic City streets. We used to do a figure 8 with the American and German version and used an exchange rate for the money. I don't think we ever finished one of those games.
13:28:23 <ynpvisitor33> That sounds fun. I like it when games have a couple of "house rules" to make things more interesting.
13:29:57 <ChrisO> doggies :)
13:30:56 <Kevin L™ > My favorite for Monopoly is "Cheaters Monopoly". Anything counts. If you get caught the guy that catches you gets to pick one of your properties or $500.
13:31:07 <KorbenC> oh, I love that version!
13:31:13 <Kevin L™ > Banker always wins that version.
13:31:43 <Kevin L™ > It got so popular they even made an official version of it!
13:32:04 <KorbenC> I like to have a banker on the outside, that is not palying. Then it gets tricky
13:32:18 <KorbenC> you just have to know how to use quick hands to roll the dice the way you wan
13:33:00 <Kevin L™ > Dice rolls don't always matter. Roll an 8, move 7....
13:33:04 <Kevin L™ > https://www.walmart.com/ip/Monopoly-Game-Cheaters-Edition-Board-Game-Ages-8-and-Up/845273886
13:33:17 <ynpvisitor33> That field on camera looks like it would be low rent. Needs a lot of clean-up.
13:33:37 <ChrisO> plenty of fertilizer though lol
13:33:42 <KorbenC> quick hands work well :)
13:34:19 <Kevin L™ > Lion looking happy
13:35:09 <Betty> is that aurum on static?
13:35:32 <Betty> cannot be
13:56:10 <JarnoO> I wonder if it'll do a short again
13:56:51 <JarnoO> and a short
13:57:25 <JarnoO> fun stuff
13:58:11 <Sam> I wonder why OF is in this short-long-short pattern as of late
13:58:37 <ChrisO> excess ground water? just a thought
13:58:38 <DanS> Big start, leading to a short - same as earlier today...
13:58:41 <ynpvisitor55> going back to the past?
13:59:24 <Sam> And I see I missed some excitement earlier this morning with a mysterious steam plume
14:00:40 <JarnoO> A few days after the SLC quake I did notice it began having a tendency to do more mediums than usual. Perhaps the central Idaho quake a few weeks ago made it have a long-short-long pattern every so often again. Could be that it's the season for shorts again and will soon stop having them, though
14:01:38 <JarnoO> most likely the latter
14:03:20 <Sam> It does that sometimes :)
14:04:31 <Betty> steam plume this morning came from Midway, and it was just that good visible because of wind direction. Seemed to be usual outcome from Excelsior or Grand Prismatic
14:04:32 <JarnoO> yep. I'm glad it switched things up at last. Else the day would be quite boring, with the usual suspects erupting as always
14:09:01 <JarnoO> I hope Lion will pop up soon. Been nearly 10 hours
14:09:38 <JarnoO> AB
14:12:36 <DanS> Have not seen Aurum lately either
14:13:47 <JarnoO> we probably missed an Aurum around 1200-1300 or so
14:14:02 <JarnoO> maybe went while the cam was on OF for its 1215 eruption
14:17:08 <Betty> there was an VEC shot at ~ 1206 or so, but I was not sure about Aurum
14:22:10 <Betty> LC ie
14:22:39 <Betty> my streaming is terribly choppy today
14:22:57 <Kevin L™ > Same here
14:45:13 <LindaG> This link is for those that want to travel and cant. https://artsandculture.withgoogle.com/en-us/
14:46:32 <GO BSB> did I miss anything?
14:47:06 <Kevin L™ > A lot of sleep.
14:47:52 <GO BSB> isnt it time for BH?
14:48:21 <Sam> Also time for Lion
14:49:08 <JarnoO> I hope both will wait for a bit
14:49:28 <JarnoO> though I don't think Lion can hold back its water anytime longer
14:50:04 <GO BSB> i must be lagged, cam not on OF
14:50:16 <CraigC> LOL
14:50:34 <CraigC> was that passive aggressive? ;)
14:50:49 <ynpvisitor51> Need to pipe in the sound of running water to make lion go.
14:51:11 <CraigC> lc
14:51:18 <GO BSB> haha, yes i guess. lc?
14:51:20 <JarnoO> Lion ini
14:52:01 <Sam> Yay
14:52:13 <GO BSB> of will wait, im sure
14:52:20 <JarnoO> :)
14:52:37 <ynpvisitor51> A duel and I do not see water in either one.
14:52:39 <GO BSB> how is everyones no-fun easter day?
14:52:46 <JarnoO> well, there's goes the view of LC :D
14:52:58 <Sam> Blizzarding here.
14:53:07 <GO BSB> oh nice
14:53:17 <Sam> So I’ve been watching the cam most of the day
14:53:42 <JarnoO> I went to my grandparents this evening. Good to finally see them again, as I usually see them at least once every week
14:53:45 <ynpvisitor51> All the spikes are between frames.
14:54:14 <GO BSB> i have beenvegitating, can't get motivated to do anything. i did shred another bag of stuff and rearranged my work computer
14:54:15 <LindaG> Ohnthere it is
14:54:43 <CraigC> GO BSB, my motivation has been awful lately, too :(
14:54:44 <LindaG> It's real quiet here
14:55:00 <LindaG> Decent weather at aleast
14:55:12 <CraigC> my daughter got me to go ride bikes around the neighborhood
14:55:30 <GO BSB> oh nice. i did go for a walk
14:55:42 <Sam> It’s supposed to be way below average temps around here for the next few days
14:56:06 <LindaG> Sam, what state are you?
14:56:20 <Sam> Nebraska
14:56:20 <JarnoO> Dave, Lion started @ 1451 based on /getvideo
14:58:49 <Sam> Start of OF on static?
14:58:57 <LindaG> Washburn and lake are nice
14:59:23 <JarnoO> I don't see OF yet, Sam
14:59:36 <JarnoO> nor after reloading stream
14:59:36 <ynpvisitor55> I'm running the wecam. I see it as it happens 1450
14:59:59 <Sam> Thought it looked like the start.
15:00:20 <CraigC> cam control screen has a headstart on this view
15:00:48 <JarnoO> so does that technically mean that also /getvideo is behind by a few seconds?
15:06:26 <JarnoO> OF
15:10:42 <GO BSB> cool, 3 shorts today. maye next one will be too?
15:11:02 <EmilyW> maybe
15:11:06 <EmilyW> howy
15:11:08 <EmilyW> howdy
15:11:14 <JarnoO> afternoon Emily
15:11:29 <JarnoO> what was that at the right base of Sponge's mound?
15:11:42 <ynpvisitor95> Anything more from Midway today?
15:12:19 <GO BSB> no volcanic eruption plume seen
15:12:40 <EmilyW> I actually think it was drifting from GH
15:12:57 <ynpvisitor95> Plume?
15:12:58 <JarnoO> Bulger
15:13:30 <Sam> There’s been 4 shorts today!
15:14:45 <GO BSB> oh true, but 3 in the SLSLSL series
15:14:45 <Michael> I wonder when was the last time it did that... Not quite enough to seach for actual facts, tho.
15:15:20 <Sam> Jarno said it may be short season
15:15:27 <Sam> Who really knows though
15:15:41 <CraigC> :daisy:
15:16:25 <EmilyW> 🦄
15:21:48 <JarnoO> some good Sponge action
15:22:35 <LindaG> Splash splash
15:22:39 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1611±10m (1h20m±10m since we don't know the duration)
15:22:43 <Betty> bah, my view was still stuck on OF
15:24:06 <JarnoO> MC ie
15:26:27 <KorbenC> That was nice walk in the coldand the wind :0
15:26:34 <KorbenC> :)**
15:27:02 <JarnoO> BSB?
15:29:02 <KorbenC> https://radar.weather.gov/ridge/radar.php?rid=dgx&product=N0R&overlay=11101111&loop=no

15:30:19 <Emily 🦄> oh wow
15:30:23 <KorbenC> Kevin, yes, but nothing sticking all getting blowen away.
15:30:38 <KorbenC> Below it says Tornado Damage Threat... CATASTROPHIC
15:31:09 <Emily 🦄> wow, you can see the centers of rotation on radar
15:31:21 <KorbenC> especialy Velocity
15:31:27 <KorbenC> beatiful! Red on Green
15:31:29 <Ben VL> Where do you get your weather forecast stuff btw?
15:31:44 <KorbenC> me?
15:32:27 <Ben VL> Yeah. I've always been curious to pay attention to tornado season but never tried to find where all the radar sites are
15:32:43 <JarnoO> bison mowing and fertilizing the grass at the same time :)
15:32:56 <KorbenC> So, I use the national weather service..
15:33:04 <KorbenC> if you want to see the warnings map it is weather.gov
15:33:21 <KorbenC> you can also click in on the map and it brings up more local forecasts
15:33:38 <KorbenC> and severe outlooks are https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/
15:33:41 <Sam> Wow. Thanks Korben
15:33:46 <Ben VL> Are reflectivity and velocity radar on there as well?
15:33:46 <Betty> I like the color of their fur
15:34:07 <Sam> Just saw some tweets and some are speculating it’s an EF-5 based on velocity
15:34:14 <KorbenC> yes
15:34:15 <Michael> If you want to see a terrifying radar, go to this one: https://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?rid=dgx&product=N0R&overlay=11101111&loop=no
15:34:25 <Kevin L™ > i like this one: https://livestormchasing.com/map
15:34:42 <KorbenC> Kevin, my favorite website :) well one of them
15:34:53 <Betty> I want a bear
15:34:58 <KorbenC> Ben, yes, if oyu click on the map somewhere it will bring up a forcast office which has radar.
15:35:10 <Kevin L™ > That is one you showed me.
15:35:28 <KorbenC> I see :)
15:35:53 <KorbenC> yeah, that velocity is screenshoted :)
15:36:27 <KorbenC> I am considering calling into that office and getting the data to its buildup
15:38:25 <LindaG> People
15:39:17 <KorbenC> here is a list of tornado warnings in effect, https://forecast.weather.gov/wwamap/wwatxtget.php?cwa=usa&wwa=Tornado%20Warning
15:39:25 <Michael> I also recently got pointed to this NWS site: https://www.weather.gov/dlh/sst
15:39:48 <Michael> Haven't navigated it enough to figure out how best to use it.
15:40:41 <KorbenC> I prefer stormspotters.org but I have access to that, and most of you likely do not. :( they should make it public, has a lot of cool stuff
15:41:13 <KorbenC> Hi Chris
15:41:19 <ChrisO> are those trespasser or USGS?
15:41:41 <CraigC> where
15:41:45 <KorbenC> hopefully USGS.
15:41:59 <ChrisO> ok thank you :)
15:42:07 <KorbenC> but I have no idea
15:50:22 <Kevin L™ > This is also good. If you zoom in you get many local stations with realtime data and recent history.
15:50:25 <Kevin L™ > https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/map/?&zoom=5&scroll_zoom=false¢er=40,-97&boundaries=false,false,false,false,false,false,false,false,false&tab=observation&hazard=true&hazard_type=all&hazard_opacity=70&obs=true&obs_type=weather&elements=temp,wind,gust&temp_filter=-80,130&gust_filter=0,150&rh_filter=0,100&elev_filter=-300,14000&precip_filter=0.01,18&obs_popup=true&obs_density=60&obs_provider=ALL
15:50:30 <LindaG> I guess there are maintenance people living here
15:51:54 <Michael> For what it's worth, I've never seen the NWS issue a statement like this one (25 minutes ago). They're usually more understated: https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/md/md0360.html
15:52:41 <Michael> Thanks for that link, Kevin.
15:53:16 <Kevin L™ > Looks like a strong one with another strong one following. Those people in Mississippi are in for a rough night.
15:55:51 <JarnoO> LC
15:56:13 <ChrisO> yippie and i get to play with this stuff tom.
15:56:48 <JarnoO> nice palindrome timestamp for my LC call
15:57:20 <KorbenC> 2 beautiful hook echoes. Click on Base Velocity https://radar.weather.gov/ridge/radar.php?rid=dgx&product=N0S&overlay=11101111&loop=no
16:00:25 <Kevin L™ > Anyone have a clue what geyser this is? https://www.flickr.com/photos/158539681@N04/49766966272/in/dateposted-public/
16:01:07 <Ben VL> Looks like fountain to me
16:01:24 <KorbenC> I have no Idea
16:01:29 <DanS> Yep, fountain
16:01:29 <KorbenC> but maybe fountain
16:02:28 <Kevin L™ > I ran across it in Dad's slides from 1969. I was thinking Fountain but wasn't sure.
16:02:55 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, that's fun
16:03:21 <Ben VL> Sinter formation, size, background, enerything says fountain to me
16:03:40 <Michael> I was going to ask what year...it looked like our old family slides. And yes, definitely Fountain.
16:04:06 <DanS> Time for a peek at Castle?
16:06:24 <Kevin L™ > Big red blob heading toward me now.
16:07:36 <DanS> more icky weather moving into UGB too from the looks of it...
16:07:57 <KorbenC> Kevin, main person on live sotrm chasters about to make a intercept
16:08:09 <KorbenC> OMG that thing is huge
16:08:13 <KorbenC> I can see the right side of it
16:08:32 <KorbenC> HOLY COW, I have never seen a tornado like this
16:08:54 <CraigC> KorbenC, are you seeing live views of it?
16:09:32 <KorbenC> yes
16:09:49 <CraigC> what site?
16:09:58 <KorbenC> https://livestormchasing.com/map
16:10:22 <KorbenC> Well, cant see it anymore, but man you could get a glimpseo f the right side, and it was HUGE
16:10:33 <KorbenC> Brett Arnold I think it was
16:10:47 <KorbenC> The tornado should come back in a minute, you can actually her it too.
16:11:06 <CraigC> :lion:
16:11:18 <CraigC> Brad Arnold
16:11:31 <KorbenC> that :)
16:11:44 <CraigC> I put his view on my 2nd monitor
16:12:10 <KorbenC> glad to hear it, if they ever get out of that RFD they should be able to see it well.
16:13:45 <JarnoO> yay, Lion
16:13:55 <CraigC> hat is RFD?
16:14:08 <KorbenC> Rear Flank DOwndraft
16:14:18 <KorbenC> Woah, bunch of people jsut went offline
16:14:28 <CraigC> they just said "RFD" in the feed
16:16:16 <CraigC> KorbenC, would you drive into like they are doing?
16:16:27 <KorbenC> no.
16:16:31 <CraigC> I would
16:16:41 <KorbenC> I would stay back at watch it from the clear side.
16:16:55 <KorbenC> I would watch the tornado, but from different side
16:16:56 <CraigC> end of road
16:17:02 <CraigC> wowow
16:17:05 <KorbenC> as in not in the RFT and Rain Flank, so you can actually see it
16:17:08 <KorbenC> Debris!
16:17:22 <KorbenC> And they gave up :(
16:17:52 <KorbenC> gonna take em a while to move the tree
16:18:02 <CraigC> I owuld go down in median and around it
16:18:12 <KorbenC> they are thinking about it
16:18:38 <KorbenC> GO BRAD!
16:18:56 <CraigC> sweet
16:19:06 <KorbenC> So, you enjoying it Craig?
16:19:06 <CraigC> we're cheering for a criminal now
16:19:11 <JarnoO> next Lion @ 1716±5m, provided the series continues
16:19:13 <KorbenC> lol
16:19:21 <KorbenC> he just crossed the median
16:19:52 <KorbenC> that tornado was like Joplin sized
16:26:43 <CraigC> switched to Nick Busby
16:27:10 <KorbenC> lol, smae
16:27:41 <KorbenC> you are very welcome for this link BTW, hope you enjoy it
16:30:39 <KorbenC> Brad said on storm spotter chat that he will be entering another tornadic storm in about 25 mins. or less if he gets luck.
16:32:02 <CraigC> KorbenC, are your parents supervising you on these mature streams?
16:32:33 <KorbenC> lol, no.
16:32:44 <KorbenC> BUT I can handle it :)
16:32:52 <KorbenC> and I am mature enough to see a tornado or two
16:33:39 <KorbenC> But if Nick intercepts another one that would be 3 that I have seen.
16:34:19 <KorbenC> today, not in total
16:34:59 <CraigC> well be careful, I don't want you having bad dreams tonight
16:35:17 <KorbenC> haha, you dont really care if I have bad dreams or not. :p
16:35:29 <CraigC> can we pretend that I do, it is Easter
16:35:38 <KorbenC> the worst dream I have had in a long time was Beehive getting hit by a plane
16:36:08 <KorbenC> hmmm, fine. I will pretend to care, if you pretend not to dislike me(which you are doing a very good job at BTW) :)
16:36:17 <KorbenC> I will pretend that you care**
16:36:23 <CraigC> were you more worried about Beehive or the people in the plane?
16:36:32 <KorbenC> Beehive
16:36:36 <KorbenC> lol
16:36:57 <KorbenC> it was only one person tho, a solo cesna.
16:37:04 <KorbenC> or however you spell them.
16:38:13 <GO BSB> Craig is going to dream about Exelsior tonight
16:38:30 <GO BSB> and trying to see if its taller than SB
16:38:56 <KorbenC> Hi Graham
16:39:04 <KorbenC> Hi Kevin
16:39:09 <GO BSB> hello
16:39:55 <KevinS> I am going to dream about ecelsior. 300ft wide and tall won't matter.
16:41:57 <KevinS> CraigC, If excelsior is active... I will take the night shift and get a GRMS license.
16:42:25 <CraigC> :)
16:42:40 <CraigC> KevinS, I am studying, I paid $10 for an online course
16:42:47 <KevinS> I'll keep the planes away too.
16:42:56 <KorbenC> what is GRMS?
16:43:27 <KorbenC> Yes, i could not imagine if my Plane crashing into Bee came true
16:43:31 <KevinS> PM the link. I will take it too.
16:43:49 <CraigC> https://study.hamradioprep.com/enrollments
16:48:09 <KevinS> I'm in Craig. Thanks.
16:48:22 <CraigC> :thumbsup:
16:49:30 <KevinS> Every gazer should do it. If the radio's really have much greater range
16:53:46 <CraigC> Brad has run into some major debris
16:54:17 <JarnoO> OF pulling a long interval
16:54:54 <CraigC> KevinS, found out from google-ing, that there are no repeaters inside the park, so better range, but not like ham radio range outside the park
16:55:51 <JarnoO> OF
16:58:32 <JarnoO> it appears OF is done with the shorts for this time
17:00:10 <JarnoO> Lion and Castle up next, possible Bee too
17:02:19 <JarnoO> Castle
17:02:58 <JarnoO> Ot ie
17:03:02 <Betty> wow
17:03:15 <Betty> nice Castle start
17:07:23 <JarnoO> keep an eye out for Lion in the next 15 minutes or so
17:09:01 <Betty> time to get some sleep. Night all
17:09:13 <JarnoO> night Betty
17:11:55 <KorbenC> Craig, you watching Brad, came up to toatal destuction
17:12:11 <CraigC> brett adair
17:12:23 <CraigC> brad was pointed at a messed up car
17:12:50 <KorbenC> did I miss anything on Brett Adair?
17:13:05 <CraigC> now on nick busby
17:13:44 <ynpvisitor14> Good thing poeple do not like Castle as much as other geysers. Easy to get a spot to see it at least in May. We normal Mays anyway.
17:13:50 <ynpvisitor14> well
17:14:08 <KorbenC> haha, someone streaming from Colorado
17:14:41 <JarnoO> in Lion window now
17:16:10 <KorbenC> Brad back to driving.
17:16:12 <Ben VL> Korben, thanks for the links. Had to go because my phone was about to die
17:16:22 <DanS> Castle would be endlessly entertaining for someone just getting interested in geysers, but not many make it even that far downbasin...
17:16:37 <KorbenC> YVW, if oyu have any questions do not hesitate to ask
17:16:49 <JarnoO> unfortunate for them, fortunate for us :)
17:17:28 <DanS> Agreed!
17:17:44 <KorbenC> Dan, you jsut gave me an idea to make a person density chart, and determine what percentage of poeple make it to a certain point
17:18:11 <JarnoO> Castle major
17:19:02 <JarnoO> Turban?
17:19:04 <LindaG> Oh nice
17:19:28 <KorbenC> Jarno, did you mean Linda? :p
17:20:00 <JarnoO> what?
17:20:08 <KorbenC> nevermind.
17:20:34 <KorbenC> Sorry, I have no idea why I said that, must be my concussion brain.
17:21:26 <LindaG> KorbenC, oh sure, play the concusssion card lol
17:21:32 <KorbenC> haha.
17:21:54 <KorbenC> I have a lot more cards up my sleeve
17:26:34 <JarnoO> Daisy
17:27:53 <LindaG> Everything is very fluffy today
17:28:08 <JarnoO> I have a sneaky suspicion Lion is done for this series. Obviously it will try to disprove me once more, but alas
17:28:51 <ynpvisitor14> It is hard to be a geyser when you are wrapped in PPE.
17:30:53 <LindaG> PPE?
17:31:14 <JarnoO> AL ie
17:31:34 <JarnoO> a kind of plastic, Linda
17:31:36 <ynpvisitor14> Have been avoiding the news? Personal Protective Equipment.
17:31:41 <JarnoO> oh
17:32:12 <ynpvisitor14> Had to get a virus joke in.
17:32:46 <LindaG> 😊 not up on technical jargon for virus, sorry
17:33:22 <ynpvisitor14> Poor pump, gets no respect
17:33:48 <JarnoO> speaking of which, PPE as plastic can withstand temperatures more than 200°C in its basic form, so ideal for geyser modelling :)
17:38:45 <ynpvisitor14> Lion trying
17:39:04 <JarnoO> I don't have much hope for it
17:40:19 <JarnoO> MC
17:40:29 <ynpvisitor14> A new word for cooper to use in casual conversation. Polyphenylene Ether
17:43:37 <ynpvisitor14> too much circle, enjoy
17:43:51 <JarnoO> cya #14
17:46:56 <GO BSB> bulger
17:47:03 <CraigC> bulger
17:58:34 <Kitt> I see that the webcam is troubled
17:59:01 <Kitt> I hope everyone had a safe, healthy Easter
18:00:25 <JarnoO> evening Kitt
18:00:40 <JarnoO> I hope you had one too
18:00:51 <Kitt> we did
18:01:36 <Kitt> made our little feast and packaged part of it up, put it in the back of the suburban and drove it to our son
18:01:59 <Kitt> we stayed in our vehicle and he got it out of the back of our vehicle
18:02:13 <Kitt> then we drove home and ate our meal
18:03:09 <Ben VL> Happy Easter Kitt!
18:03:24 <Kitt> was curious what bee was up to after yesteday's single bsb then Beehive
18:03:28 <Ben VL> Did you see last nights webcam capture?
18:03:36 <Kitt> same to you Ben
18:03:50 <Kitt> how is your family doing?
18:03:59 <Kitt> no, what happened last night?
18:04:34 <Ben VL> We are doing well. A little tired of being home, but well and healthy. How about yours?
18:04:59 <Kitt> I understand
18:05:19 <Ben VL> There was a suspicious steam cloud in the Midway area around ~3:30
18:05:51 <Ben VL> Very big
18:06:23 <Kitt> it is taking some getting use to after travelling for 39 days in Australia and New Zealand
18:07:00 <Ben VL> Yeah I bet
18:07:37 <Ben VL> How was the trip?
18:07:49 <Kitt> Like It was wonderful
18:08:36 <Ben VL> Good
18:10:08 <Kitt> so is there speculation that Excelsior might have done something?
18:10:26 <Ben VL> Yes
18:12:19 <Ben VL> Here's the link to the overnight capture:
18:12:23 <Ben VL> https://youtu.be/s2fyVF32eXI
18:13:16 <Ben VL> Skip to about the 10 minute mark
18:16:10 <ynpvisitor64> The plume is still there at the end of the video. Very steamy morning. Look at Riverside at the end, it’s massive
18:19:47 <Kitt> wow, that is a big steam plume
18:20:41 <Ben VL> It's kinda there off and on all night, but it got very big around then
18:28:53 <ynpvisitor77> Grand 1828 ie
18:32:04 <ynpvisitor77> Riverside 1831 ie
18:35:40 <JarnoO> OF
18:42:25 <JarnoO> Churn seems steamy
18:47:16 <JarnoO> MC
18:47:44 <Kevin L™ > Depression is warm
18:51:19 <LindaG> So theres a new thi g. Howl for those that are sick deceased from covid. Italy sang on their balconies, in the USA we spare ghowl.
18:51:51 <LindaG> *In USA we apparently howl. Started in Colorado
18:52:53 <LindaG> 8pm every night people go out and howl
18:53:27 <Kevin L™ > Keeps the werewolves away.
18:53:48 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, have you heard any howling?
18:53:59 <JarnoO> In the Netherlands we watch the news at 8pm
18:54:14 <LindaG> I might try it tomorrow, that will wake up the neighbors
18:54:20 <JarnoO> at 7:30pm as well
18:54:33 <LindaG> JarnoO, 😊
18:54:43 <KorbenC> wait howling???
18:55:18 <Kevin L™ > Can't say I have
18:55:20 <LindaG> KorbenC, yes are they howling by you, Colorado started it
18:55:35 <KorbenC> as in like, howling like a wolf?
18:55:40 <JarnoO> Kevin, maybe if you howl you keep that bobcat away :)
18:56:03 <LindaG> Haha! Jarno that's right
18:56:18 <LindaG> KorbenC, yes
18:56:34 <KorbenC> why are poeple howling like wolves? and when are they doing it
18:57:04 <LindaG> KorbenC, Facebook page called "go outside and howl at 8pm'
18:57:21 <KorbenC> huh
18:57:26 <KorbenC> when did this start?
18:57:29 <LindaG> They are howling for the sick and deceased
18:58:36 <Kevin L™ > What I have planned for that bobcat will make it howl but only for a short time.
18:58:44 <LindaG> https://coloradosun.com/2020/04/10/denver-howl-8-pm-why-does-it-happen/
18:59:03 <LindaG> KorbenC, look at link
18:59:24 <KorbenC> huh
18:59:32 <KorbenC> gonna listen for howling at 8 then
19:00:14 <LindaG> KorbenC, cathartic I would imagine
19:00:38 <ynpvisitor77> It doesn't sound like all that of a great Idea to me. Italians doing better! Even the Brits.
19:00:55 <LindaG> KorbenC, belt one out, see if anyone howls back
19:01:05 <KorbenC> well, I have a better idea
19:01:21 <KorbenC> so anytime I put on Johhny Cash both my dogs start howling like crazy
19:01:37 <KorbenC> so I am just going to turn up the surround sound, and they will howl for an hour
19:02:12 <LindaG> ynpvisitor77, what are the Brits doing?
19:02:30 <ynpvisitor77> Clapping
19:03:04 <LindaG> ynpvisitor77, 👍
19:03:19 <ynpvisitor77> For health workers
19:03:58 <KorbenC> well, ice cream time
19:23:49 <Kevin L™ > Stack heading up the Loop.
19:24:31 <LindaG> 👍
19:25:58 <LindaG> Kevin L™ 🌵, slowly
19:27:39 <Kevin L™ > Takes a while to get it going uphill.
19:37:35 <JarnoO> Daisy
19:38:09 <ynpvisitor116> Nice light
19:44:32 <JarnoO> I'm off. Enjoy the mysterious plume from Midway tonight
19:44:59 <DanS> gnight

21:12:43 <Kevin L™ > Welcome to the black hole
21:19:26 <KorbenC> I guess I am "stuck" on here for 5 more minutes
21:19:47 <KorbenC> not quite ready to sleep yet.
21:20:34 <Eric> I was just reading Craigs Facebook capture post from last night...that is pretty dang cool.
21:21:01 <Eric> I just did a map alignment of that plume and it fits perfectly for excelsior
21:21:15 <KorbenC> Hi Craig
21:21:20 <KorbenC> Eric**
21:21:24 <KorbenC> I read Craig first :P
21:24:45 <KorbenC> Eric, on Bettys post she said, " Addition: After watching the overnight capture it seemed to be the usual steam from Midway Geyser Basin in a cold night. Just the wind direction and moonlight made it appear that big."
21:25:33 <KorbenC> well, now I am tired. So going to actualy go to bed this time :) Goodnight Eric, Kevin.
21:25:51 <Kevin L™ > Night
21:26:24 <Eric> Night Coop
21:26:56 <Eric> Maybe light trickery...but I have never seen a plume quite like that from Midway
21:27:32 <Eric> If anything is going to steam up on a cold night, it would be Grand Prismatic, and that is much wider.
21:27:47 <Eric> Which I have seen many times on cold mornings slightly to the left.
21:28:12 <Eric> I personally think it's an eruption of excelsior.
21:28:40 <Eric> or other hole...who knows...we just had a large earthquake over in Idaho a week or so ago.
21:30:49 <Eric> Alright...I am out as well, have a good night Kevin
21:41:05 <ynpvisitor111> can't even tell what the cam is aimed at
21:41:08 <ynpvisitor111> too dark
21:49:03 <ynpvisitor1> I think the cam is off. The hill is the only place with out lights. No one would leave it on the hill in the dark, would they?
21:51:04 <Kevin L™ > That is one of the normal night positions.
